Autopsy Diagram Shows Mike Brown was Shot from Behind

by Scott Creighton

There’s been a lot of disinformation being circulated in the MSM as well as in the fake alternative press about how the “new” witness (some guys hanging around chatting while filming near the scene) and the autopsy drawing proves that Mike Brown was shot from the front side and the front side only while he was “charging” at the police officer.

That claim is patently ridiculous and only goes to show how stupid the spin crafters think we are.

First of all, the video of the two guys talking while viewing the scene of the shooting proves nothing. You take any crime scene or accident scene and you are going to have 15 people show up after the fact, having actually witnessed nothing, and half of them are going to trying to tell the other half what happened as if they had been there the whole time. It’s bullshit gossip from an undisclosed source and it is absolutely meaningless unless of course you run a police department which is desperate to blame the victim. Then, it gets circulated like it’s the gospel truth even if it flies in the face of common sense and the available evidence.

Second and most importantly, the autopsy diagrams DO NOT show that Mike Brown was hit from the front. That is also ridiculously stupid. They certainly don’t back up the claim that he was “charging” at the officer when he was hit.

You notice how his palms are turned outward? Do you run like that? Does someone “charging” at an officer run like that? Look at where on his arms he was hit. In the BACK of the bicep near the shoulder, in the tricep near the elbow, in the back of the forearm and in the meat of his thumb on the palm side, not the back of his hand.

More importantly, look at the diagram showing his back side. Do you run like that? Do you stand like that?

Strategy of Tension: CNN (and the rest of the complicit media) Goes Full Retard in Ferguson

by Scott Creighton

You might think after a week of deliberate incitement in Ferguson with the mass media playing the role of special operations megaphone assets, the streets would be packed with angry protesters and the gutters would be running with blood.

However, like all those Muslims the FBI tries to entrap across the country, it would appear the average young black man isn’t as stupid or naive as the narrative crafters believe.

Try as they might to gin-up social and racial unrest, if turn-out is any indication, the latest strategy of tension op in the U.S. is starting to look like Waterworld’s box office receipts. That’s what you get when you underestimate the intelligence of your target audience.

But that didn’t stop CNN’s Don Lemon and Jake Tapper as they take the melodrama to the next, pathetic level in this ridiculously sophomoric segment from last night’s “Crisis in Ferguson” street theater production.

You gotta see this.

Wall Street Teams Up with U.S. Intelligence Cronies in Bid to Form Fascist “Cyber War Council”

by Michael Krieger , Liberty Blitzkrieg

Want to hear the worst idea in the history of horrible ideas? How about we take the industry responsible for destroying the U.S. economy and wrecking the lives of tens of millions of people, and then allow it to create a “government-industry cyber war council.”

It appears that trillions in taxpayer bailouts simply wasn’t enough for Wall Street. Recognizing that it can seemingly get whatever it wants whenever it wants, the industry is now positioning itself to overtly control U.S. “cyber” policy. What could go wrong?

Merging of private business and government. Fascism

Or they could get involved in strikes against U.S. citizens they find undesirable or problematic.” Alan Greyson

Serial School Privatizer “Chainsaw Paul” Vallas Gets Ready For His Next Job

by Bruce Dixon, BAR

There are many things upon which elite corporate Democrats are in complete agreement with elite corporate Republicans. Often enough they are far more important to the way we live our lives than the cultural rhetoric and stylistic fluff that separates the two parties. Both Republicans and Democrats agree on empire and the wars needed to preserve it. They both agree gentrification, stadiums, and tax breaks for the wealthy are the only way to economically develop cities. They both know that poor and working people ought to subsidize a new round of predatory accumulation with lowered wages, plundered pensions, fiscal austerity and the privatization of public education.

Democrat Paul Vallas has spent the last two decades dismembering and dismantling public schools, lying about deficits, unjustly blaming and firing public school teachers across the country. In 1995 Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley, began the reversal of the bottom-up school reform of his predecessor Harold Washington, by assuming direct mayoral control over the city’s public schools. Chicago fired its school superintendent, a professional educator, and sent in the mayor’s chief of staff, an accountant unqualified to teach half an hour in any classroom to run the nation’s third largest school system “more like a business” with the business title of “CEO. That man was Paul Vallas.

If neoliberalism is the economic and social doctrine that all human interactions ought to be disciplined and mediated by the market, then Paul Vallas is the neoliberal chainsaw man on public education. He eagerly set about undermining bottom-up reforms in Chicago that empowered neighborhood councils of parents and rank and file teachers. A 1988 law had given these local school councils veto power over principals’ contracts and title one funds in each and every one of Chicago’s public schools.

Paul Vallas hit upon the expedient of disbanding and dissolving whole schools and reconstituting them as private entities, charter schools. He closed one south side Chicago high school across the street from an old National Guard armory, and gave public funding to a military academy in the armory building. With no nearby public school to attend, many parents and children felt compelled to enroll in the new military charter school. Paul Vallas terminated dozens of black administrative staff without cause and hundreds of black teachers before leaving the Chicago Public Schools and staging unsuccessful campaigns for Cook County Board President (Cook County includes Chicago and has a population of 5.5 million) and Illinois governor. He was succeeded by Arne Duncan, now US Secretary of Education, who took Vallas’s “innovations” in running schools like businesses to new heights first locally, and then nationally.

White House Plans Another Big Climate Push (on behalf of Hank Paulson and his billionaires)

(please read Hank Paulson Pushes Global Warming “Climate Crash” for his Billionaire Partners at Risky Business )

from the Huffington Post

One year after President Barack Obama rolled out his climate change action plan, the administration is putting fresh emphasis on its environmental agenda.

The White House plans to host two roundtable discussions this week on the economic threats that climate change poses and the “opportunities to overcome those risks,” a White House official said in an email Monday night, which emphasized the potential costs of not addressing planet-warming emissions.

Treasury Secretary Jack Lew and White House leaders also plan to meet with billionaire climate activist Tom Steyer and former Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson on Wednesday to discuss a report they will release this week titled, “Risky Business,” which assess the economic costs of climate change. Steyer and Paulson are the co-chairs for the report.

Hank Paulson Pushes Global Warming “Climate Crash” for his Billionaire Partners at Risky Business

by Scott Creighton

THERE is a time for weighing evidence and a time for acting…For too many years, we failed to rein in the excesses building up in the nation’s financial markets. When the credit bubble burst in 2008, the damage was devastating. Millions suffered. Many still do. We’re making the same mistake today with climate change.

… We need to craft national policy that uses market forces to provide incentives for the technological advances required to address climate change. As I’ve said, we can do this by placing a tax on carbon dioxide emissions. Many respected economists, of all ideological persuasions, support this approach. We can debate the appropriate pricing and policy design and how to use the money generated. But a price on carbon would change the behavior of both individuals and businesses. At the same time, all fossil fuel — and renewable energy — subsidies should be phased out. Renewable energy can outcompete dirty fuels once pollution costs are accounted for.

… To add reliable financial data to the science, I’ve joined with the former mayor of New York City, Michael R. Bloomberg, and the retired hedge fund manager Tom Steyer on an economic analysis of the costs of inaction across key regions and economic sectors. Our goal for the Risky Business project — starting with a new study that will be released this week — is to influence business and investor decision making worldwide.” Hank Paulson, June 21, 2014

Henry “Hank” Paulson, former Goldman Sachs CEO, failed to rein in the excesses of the financial market place for years. In fact, he did everything he could to ensure that the sub-prime mortgage bubble, created by the same financial institutions he serves, would cripple the economy forcing an ideological shift in the economic structure of the United States (anti-entitlement programs, harsh austerity… a.k.a. neoliberalism) and every other country places like Goldman Sachs could sell off their toxic derivative economic WMDs.

The results were breathtakingly bad for the average citizen ranging from heavy losses in their retirement nest-eggs to the losses of their homes, jobs and pensions. But big finance profited immensely  by selling the bad loans, to bundling them into toxic assets, to betting against their inevitable failure, to forcing congress to bail them out in the end to the tune of trillions upon trillions of dollars, to the consolidation of the banking industry, the likes of which has never been seen in the history of mankind.

Yesterday, the Sunday Review of the New York Times published an op-ed by Mr. Paulson in which he touted the desperate need to impose a carbon tax on individuals and businesses to combat man-made global warming. He specifically cited “Hurricane Sandy and the deadly Oklahoma tornadoes”  as proof of the dire consequences that are coming if we don’t give in as soon as possible. It doesn’t matter to Mr. Paulson that Sandy was neither a hurricane, nor did it have anything to do with global warming, according to the experts writing about it at the time.

You can’t be allowed to “hold a viewpoint that terrorizes… people”

by Scott Creighton

Oct. 18th 2011 Killary meets with leaders of terrorist destabilization campaign in Libya

Last night, Hillary Clinton and her PR specialists held an infomercial in the guise of a town hall style Q&A session on CNN in which she answered scripted questions from “average citizens” about the issues of the day. The interview came not 24 hours after news of the capture of the “Benghazi suspect” hit the headlines and only about a week after her book, Hard Choices, hit the shelves.

During last night’s infomercial, when asked by a school teacher (of course) about stricter gun control laws, here is what Hillary said (video):

“I’m well aware that this is a hot political subject. And again, I will speak out no matter what role I find myself in But I believe that we need a more thoughtful conversation. We cannot let a minority of people – and it’s, that’s what it is, it is a minority of people – hold a viewpoint that terrorizes the majority of people,”

“We’re going to have to do a better job protecting the vast majority of our citizens, including our children, from that very, very, very small group that is unfortunately prone to violence and now with automatic weapons can wreak so much more violence than they ever could have before,” Hillary Clinton

Disturbing on so many levels, it’s hard to figure out where to begin with Killary’s statement.
