WAYNE MADSEN : Netanyahu Speech In Washington - The Breaking Of A Taboo Now Permitted

Americans fed up with Zionist propaganda, warmongering, fighting wars for Israel, taxpayer financing of "special relationship" and Congress empty posturing when Americans are facing uncertain futures   

By Wayne Madsen

There was once a time when any criticism of any Israeli leader by an elected U.S. political leader was a taboo, an act that ensured a quick political death sentence. Those who even mildly criticized the actions of Israel or any Israeli prime minister were guaranteed a well-funded election opponent, courtesy of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).

Same players, same warmongering BS
After Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu conspired with Republican U.S. House Speaker John Boehner for the Israeli prime minister to give an address to a joint session of Congress, his third -- a distinction that Netanyahu shares only with British Prime Minister Winston Churchill -- and without the knowledge of the Obama administration, all gloves are off. Never before in the history of the United States has a foreign leader been invited to denounce a sitting American president from the same pulpit where the American president delivers the traditional State of the Union address.

What Netanyahu called for before Congress was nothing less than total regime change in Iran. Netanyahu stressed he does not want any sort of nuclear deal with the current government in Tehran and wants sanctions increased not decreased. Netanyahu, who understands the hold that his Zionist friends who control Hollywood have over the American public, compared Iran to the "Game of Thrones," a reference to an HBO fantasy series about seven warring kingdoms. Netanyahu also said that as far as the Islamic State’s conflict with Iran was concerned, "the enemy of your enemy is your enemy." He was referring to the United States and its current war with the Islamic State. Netanyahu mangled what every sane observer of the current state of Middle Eastern affairs say that the U.S. and Iran are natural allies against ISIL, the operative motto being "the enemy of your enemy is your friend." Netanyahu laughingly tried to draw a comparison between the Islamic State and Iran because "Iran calls itself the Islamic Republic and ISIS calls itself the Islamic State." 

"Duh… Game of what?"  The perfect opportunity for increasingly irrelevant Bohner to distract from and ignore real issues facing Americans

Netanyahu said Iran and ISIL are competing like the warring kingdoms in the "Game of Thrones" to see who would wear the crown. Netanyahu ignored the fact that the jihadist ISIL guerrillas claim to be Sunni while Iran is Shi’a. As far as Iran’s formal name is concerned, Netanyahu may have as well compared ISIS or ISIL to Mauritania, Pakistan, and Afghanistan, all of which use "Islamic Republic" in their names.

Netanyahu also outrageously suggested that it was more important to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon than in defeating the Islamic State. Netanyahu was relying on the same low-IQ sound-bytes that are commonplace on such propaganda networks as Fox News and on the editorial pages of The Wall Street Journal.

As a number of Democratic senators and representatives announced they were going to avoid Netanyahu’s speech, another move that would have normally resulted in a cacophony of dissenting shouts from the Israel Lobby, President Obama told Reuters in an exclusive interview that Netanyahu’s speech was a mistake. Obama, in response to national security adviser Susan Rice’s earlier comment that Netanyahu’s speech was "destructive to the fabric" of the U.S.-Israeli relationship, agreed that Netanyahu’s speech to Congress two weeks before an Israeli election was a "distraction," in addition to being a mistake.

Obama’s rather diplomatic language hides a seething within the White House for the partisan activities of Israeli ambassador to the United States Ron Dermer, a former U.S. citizen, and Boehner. The Netanyahu visit comes after senior White House officials were anonymously quoted in the media as calling the Israeli prime minister a "coward" and a "chickens shit." 

Obama continues to fiddle on the golf course as America burns from lack of poetical and military leadership

Perhaps no other U.S. administration has had a tenser relationship with Israel since John F. Kennedy warned Israeli Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion in a 1963 letter that unless American inspectors were allowed into Israel’s Dimona nuclear facility, Israel would lose American aid and find itself diplomatically isolated. In 1961, Kennedy refused to allow Ben-Gurion to visit the White House but agreed to meet him in a rather unpublicized meeting at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York. 

A CNN poll showed that American public opinion is shifting on Israel, with 63 percent of Americans polled disagreeing with Boehner’s invitation for Netanyahu to address Congress. But to the tone deaf AIPAC, whose annual conference in Washington Netanyahu addressed on the eve of his speech to Congress, they wrongly believe they have the support of the American people when they only have the support of older Jews, so-called Christian Zionists, and neoconservative war hawks who are part of the U.S. military-industrial base. Even 31 percent of American Jews, according to the CNN poll cited earlier have no affinity to the goals of Israel. 

Obama and Vice President Joe Biden decided not to speak to AIPAC this year. The White House, instead, sent Susan Rice and UN ambassador Samantha Power to address the very pro-Republican and right-wing group. In preparation for his congressional speech, Netanyahu told AIPAC "For 2,000 years, my people, the Jewish people, were stateless, defenseless, voiceless." Anyone familiar with the history of the financial system of the Roman Empire or the Rothschild barons of finance and industry in Europe would not claim that the Jewish were entirely "defenceless" or "voiceless" throughout the last 2000 years.

Many Jews in the United States and elsewhere resent Netanyahu’s repeated claims to represent the entirety of the Jewish people. Before Congress, Netanyahu shamelessly tried to compare today’s Iran with Nazi Germany and ancient Persia. In reference to Persia, Netanyahu said, "Today the Jewish people face another attempt by yet another Persian potentate to destroy us." Netanyahu was citing arcane Old Testament mythology contained in the pages of the Book of Esther.

Irking AIPAC even more was the fact that Secretary of State John Kerry turned down his invitation so he could meet with Iranian foreign minister Zavad Jarif in P5+1 nuclear discussions in Geneva. Kerry also pointedly warned Netanyahu against disclosing secret details of the P5+1 nuclear negotiations before the Congress. It became clear, however, that Netanyahu’s undermining of Obama and Kerry during the sensitive negotiations in Geneva, were aimed at scuttling a nuclear deal and preventing any weakening of sanctions on Iran. Netanyahu flatly told Congress that any nuclear deal by the P5+1 with Iran would "pave the way" for an Iranian nuclear weapons. Not only has the CIA dismissed any such current plans by Iran but several former Israeli intelligence officials have said the same thing: Iran has no capability of producing a nuclear weapon at the present time.

Netanyahu’s people managed to dredge up Czech president Milos Zeman, former Spanish prime minister José Maria Aznar, and former Canadian foreign minister John Baird to applaud Netanyahu’s comments to AIPAC. The three foreign officials, by default, also showed their disrespect to the Obama administration by attending a partisan event on the eve of an even greater partisan event.

Although such Democratic senators as Patrick Leahy, Elizabeth Warren (a much-rumored 2016 presidential candidate), Brian Schatz, Sheldon Whitehouse, Tim Kaine, and Al Franken, and veteran Democratic Representatives John Lewis, Jim McDermott, and Jim Clyburn, as well as Republican Representative Walter Jones, announced their boycott of Netanyahu’s speech, other Democrats, including Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, were present. The empty seats in the House chamber will filled by pro-Netanyahu Republican staffers who, along with the attendees the nearby AIPAC conference managed to pack into the House Visitor’s Gallery, gave Netanyahu thunderous, if not misleading, applause and shouts of support.

Not surprisingly, Netanyahu’s speech was praised by the pro-Zionist CNN and its Washington bureau chief, Wolf Blitzer, who never admits in the interest of full disclosure that he was once the public affairs spokesman for AIPAC.

Netanyahu will now face off against Israel’s political opposition in the March 17 election. Although Netanyahu may have scored cheap political points with Israel’s right-wing and even farther-right settlers, the damage he has done to the U.S.-Israeli "special relationship" will far outlast the results of the forthcoming election.

Rubio Says Spending Cuts Must Accompany "Tax Overhaul" - Targets Social Security and Medicare

Democrats and Republicans both gearing up to complete the looting of Social Security and Medicare funds, obviating the need to account for the STOLEN TAXPAYER MONEY while throwing MILLIONS of Seniors, the disabled, Veterans and children out onto the streets of America to starve and die from lack of medical care; Social Security has been THE MOST SUCCESSFUL retirement program in history and would be funded in perpetuity had it not been LOOTED by successive administrations and CONGRESS    

By Andy Sullivan


U.S. Senator Marco Rubio, a likely Republican presidential candidate in 2016, on Wednesday unveiled a plan to reduce taxes for multinational corporations and parents, but it would widen federal budget deficits without cuts to popular health and retirement programs.

Rubio: the moronic dope that plans to STEAL
The Florida senator's tax plan, introduced with Utah Republican Senator Mike Lee, would close loopholes and simplify the U.S. tax code, introduce new deductions for parents. In an effort to spur economic growth, it would encourage businesses to spend on computers, tractors and other equipment rather than taking on debt.

It would also eliminate taxes on dividends and capital gains, but limit the popular deduction for mortgage interest payments.

Like other ambitious tax-reform efforts, the plan is not likely to become law this year but could be a significant part of Rubio's pitch to voters if he decides to run for president.

"I hope these ideas are embraced by everybody running for president, because I think our party needs to be the pro-family, pro-growth party," he told a news conference.

Social Security and Medicate are not "entitlements" as
politicians and the MSM keep repeating over and over
again; in fact they are paid for by PAYROLL DEDUCTIONS
While congressional scorekeepers have not analyzed Rubio's plan, outside experts at the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center have found that a similar one outlined by Rubio and Lee last year would reduce the government's tax haul. 

Without additional spending cuts, it would widen budget deficits.

Rubio said Washington would have to reduce spending on popular retirement and health programs to cut the deficit.

"Our generation is going to have to accept that our Medicare and Social Security is going to be different from our parents," he said.

Obama, Congress vision for Senior citizens, the disabled, Veterans

The plan would lower the U.S. corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 25 percent, and allow businesses to write off capital expenses the year they are purchased, rather than stretching deductions over years or decades.

THIS could be the future for American Seniors if  Obama
and Congress have their way
It would remove incentives that encourage businesses to take on debt, as well as tax breaks for a range of interests, from wind power to paper mills, that are regularly extended by Congress.

Multinational companies would no longer have to pay tax on income earned overseas that they want to return to their headquarters in the United States.

The plan would simplify personal tax rates to two levels: 15 percent for joint filers who earn up to $150,000 and 35 percent for income above that level. 

Parents would get a bigger tax credit of up to $2,500 per child, up from the current $1,000 maximum.

Indonesia Moves Australians Ahead Of Expected Executions

This is what happens when tourists enter Indonesia believing they can easily flaunt the drug and other laws in this country; Abbot should be addressing the drug problems in Australia rather than pointing the finger once more at Indonesia  


JAKARTA, Indonesia - 

Two convicted Australian drug smugglers arrived on Wednesday at an Indonesian island prison where they will be executed by firing squad along with seven other foreigners amid a diplomatic squabble with some of their governments. An Indonesian is also scheduled to be executed. 

Indonesian authorities move prisoners to execution
The preparations at the execution site at Nusakambangan Island's maximum-security prison facilities have been completed, said attorney general Muhammad Prasetyo. But authorities have not given a date for the executions, although they appear imminent. 

Besides the two Australians, a Nigerian national born in Spain and a Filipino woman were also to be transferred to the island prison off Indonesia's main island of Java. In addition, two other Nigerians and four men from Brazil, France, Ghana and Indonesia are also scheduled to be executed. 

It was not immediately known how many have been transferred to the island. 

The planned executions have soured of relations between Indonesia and other countries involved, especially Australia and Brazil. President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo received phone calls from some foreign leaders asking that the executions be canceled, but has rejected their requests. He has vowed not to grant mercy to drug offenders because Indonesia is suffering a "drug emergency." 

Australian dope smugglers Chan and Sukumaran
Australia has repeatedly pleaded for clemency for its two citizens, Andrew Chan, 31 and Myuran Sukumaran, 33, who were arrested in April 2005 while trying to smuggle more than 8 kilograms (18 pounds) of heroin from Bali to Australia. 

Chan and Sukumaran were removed from the Kerobokan Penitentiary on Bali island — where they have spent the last decade — in two police armored vehicles in a pre-dawn operation involving scores of riot police. They were taken to Nusakambangan Island by flight and then a boat. Australian media camped there reported their arrival. 

Prison authorities had earlier turned away Chan's older brother, Michael Chan, who attempted a visit. Television footage showed Michael Chan walking away from the prison with his brother's Indonesian girlfriend, who was in tears. 

Indonesians protesting Abbot attempts to subvert justice system

Prison governor Sudjonggo, who goes by a single name, told reporters Chan and Sukumaran did not appear worried as they left the prison. 

Sukumaran took several pencils in a plastic bag, clothes, a bible and a drawing book, he said. 

Abbot had attempted to tie fate of drug smugglers with tsunami aid to Indonesia - garnering this response from Indonesians to that effort

The Indonesian government last week recalled its newly designated ambassador to Brazil, Toto Riyanto, to protest the postponement of the approval of his credentials by Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff amid tensions over the imminent execution of its citizen, Rodrigo Gularte, 42. 

The Spain-born Nigerian, Raheem Agbaje Salami, 45, and 30-year-old Filipino Mary Jane Fiesta Veloso have also been convicted of drug smuggling. 

Indonesians are fed up with Australian tourists that believe they can get away with anything they like while "vacationing" here and especially on Bali where drug use, prostitution and pedophilia by foreigners is rampant

Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott has called on Indonesia to "reciprocate" for Australia's $1 billion aid package after the 2004 tsunami by sparing his two countrymen. 

"Right now millions of Australians are feeling sick in their guts at the prospect of execution for these two," Abbott told reporters. 

"I've been saying again and again that this is contrary to Indonesia's national interest and it is contrary to Indonesia's best values," he added. 

Tony's brothers should be looking for him on Bali,
hanging out with the rest of the dopers and pedos
Abbott said he understood why many Australians were threatening to never visit Indonesia, a near neighbour.

"I can very much understand their position and I think there are millions of Australians who feel quite angry at this time at what's happening," he said. 

But Abbott said the bilateral relationship must survive regardless of what happened to the pair. 

"Let's remember that a good relationship with Indonesia is very important to this country and whatever might happen in the next few days, the relationship with Indonesia must endure and, over time, it must grow stronger," he said. 

Indonesia executed six drug convicts including foreigners in January. More than 130 people are on death row, including 57 drug convicts.

NYC Rats "Could Transmit Plague" - Newest MSM Scaremongering For Ratings

Newest panic story now appearing in MSM, the operative word here is "could;" as with the Ebola scare, do not panic but instead be prepared - Yersinia pestis (plague) is highly treatable with antibiotics, 
Streptomycin being the "gold standard" for treatment in humans

By David McNamee

According to a new study, the bubonic plague could be transmitted via rats in New York City. The rats host a species of flea capable of passing the plague, also known as The Black Death, to humans. However, plague itself has not been found in the rats or fleas in the study.

Yersinia pestis
Last month, we looked at research published in the journal Cell Traces that found a wide variety of microorganisms, including DNA traces of anthrax and bubonic plague, alongside unidentified pathogens in a citywide map of microbes in the New York subway system.

However, senior investigator Dr. Christopher E. Mason reassured that these pathogens were unlikely to be harmful to human health:

"Despite finding traces of pathogenic microbes, their presence isn't substantial enough to pose a threat to human health. The presence of these microbes and the lack of reported medical cases is truly a testament to our body's immune system, and our innate ability to continuously adapt to our

Now, in the first study of its kind since the 1920s, researchers from Cornell and Columbia Universities analyzed more than 6,500 specimens of fleas, lice and mites taken from 133 New York-dwelling rats.

The Black Death, caused by infected flea-carring rats devastated Europe in the Middle Ages; now if diagnosed early the bacterium is easily treated with modern antibiotics

Among the collected creatures were more than 500 Oriental fleas, described as being "notorious" for their role in transmitting The Black Death.

"If these rats carry fleas that could transmit the plague to people, then the pathogen itself is the only piece missing from the transmission cycle," says lead author Matthew Frye.

Oriental rat fleas are also known to transmit the pathogenic bacteria Rickettsia and several species ofBartonella, which Frye says "can cause a wide range of clinical syndromes, some severe."

Frye's colleagues at Columbia University's Center for Infection and Immunity used molecular screening methods to search for these pathogens in the collected samples. Although the researchers did findBartonella, they report in the Journal of Medical Entomology that no Rickettsia or plague were found.

Genome sequence of Yersinia pests

Plague can be found in some regions of the US, such as the American Southwest, where it infects an average of 10 people each year. The pathogen is transmitted in these areas by the fleas of ground squirrels and prairie dogs.

Plague Rats "Have Never Been Found In New York"

However, New Yorkers should not be too worried about an imminent outbreak of Black Death in the Big Apple. Commenting on the study, the city's Health Department emphasized that plague-carrying rats have never been found in New York.

Yersinia pestis genome sequencing identifies patterns of global phylogenetic diversity

"Plague requires extreme circumstances besides fleas to pose a threat to human health, and those circumstances do not exist here," a Health Department spokesperson told New York Daily News.

Previous research conducted by Frye on the same 133 rats, however, found that the rodents carried a "disturbing number" of viral and bacterial diseases. These included previously undocumented pathogens that could infect humans.

Fox "News" frauds and hacks live off of panic mongering, terror shilling and are good only for entertainment

Frye recommends that New Yorkers remove food and water and prevent access to shelter in an effort to hold back rodent infestations. Also, when evicting rats from homes and workplaces, Frye says it is crucial that careful sanitation is followed to remove the fleas, lice and mites left behind by the rodents.

"It's not that these parasites can infest our bodies," Frye says, "but they can feed on us while seeking other rats to infest."
