US PRESIDENTS CELEBRATING

Author John Sugden-in his book about Tecumseh- relates how the US soldiers- in their enthusiasm- peeled off the chief’s skin from his back down to his thighs and how one of them took one piece of flesh and turned it into small pieces to be used to tie the razors and how others rushed and fought over getting a piece of his head scalp even though some couldn’t get a piece larger than a one cent coin with a tuft of Tecumseh’s hair on it.
And when in 1886 -or 75 years after the event – an interview took place with one of the lucky ones who were present at it, the interviewed person spoke proudly about this historical instant holding between his two fingers his heroic souvenir. As for US president Andrew Jackson- who has his picture on the twenty dollars bill- he was a great fan of body mutilations and he used to order to count the numbers of victims by counting their mutilated noses and ears and he had personally attended the mutilation of 8 00 Native Indigenous among them chief: Red Sticks and this is how author David Stannard relates how Mr. Andrew Jackson celebrated his victory over the Creeks by having his soldiers mutilate the victims among Native men, women and children by cutting their noses in order to count them and then scalp their skins to be used in manufacturing braided horse reins .

Protesters demanded: United Nation Should Recoginze Right of Return to Palestine for Palestinians

Friday observed as a day of solidarity with Palestinians on Nakba anniversary 
 
 
Friday was observed as a day of solidarity with Palestinians on the anniversary of Nakba anniversary.
 
The day of solidarity with Palestinians was observed on an appeal of Palestine Foundation of Pakistan that has launched a weeklong campaign on the anniversary of Nakba Day.
 
The supporters of the PLF and JUP staged a demonstration outside of Memon Masjid Bolton Market after Friday prayers. The protestors raised slogans against the Zionist regime of Israel and its allied states such as United States and European Union countries.
 
Allama Qazi Ahmed Noorani, Mehfooz Yar Khan, Sabir Karbalai, Allama Shabbir Abu Talib, Maulana Shukat Mughal, Waheed Younus, Nasir Rizwan and Allama Jafar Raza of the PLF and JUP spoke to the demonstrators.
 
They said that the Zionist terrorists brought thousands of racist Jews to Palestine and began massacring Palestinians due to which hundreds of thousands of Palestinians had to leave their abodes. Since then, United Nations had recognised their legitimate right of return to their homeland Palestine.
 
The speakers urged the international community to play their active and effective role to ensure that more than 5 million Palestinian refugees are brought back to their land that has been occupied and renamed as Israel. They said that the PLF and likeminded pro-Palestine organizations had launched a campaign to support the Palestinians right to return Palestine.
 
They demanded of the International Criminal Court to file war crimes against the Zionist regime of Israel for its crimes against humanity. They demanded that the siege of Gaza should also be brought to an end by forcing the Zionist forces to desist from the siege.

Psychopathy, Politics and The New World Order

NOVANEWS
Global Research

When attempting to analyse what is happening in the world, it is important to appreciate past economic, social and political processes that led us to where we are today. Understanding the tectonic plates of history that led certain countries towards fascism, communism or capitalist liberal democracy, for example, is essential (1) (2).

At the same time, however, it can become easy for us to push aside the individual as we focus on theoretical perspectives that refer to the ‘underlying logic of capitalism’ or some other notion that draws heavily on theory. It can get to the point where individual motive or intent (agency) is airbrushed from the narrative because human action is deemed to have been shaped by the dead weight of history or forces beyond our control.

While not wishing to understate the role that such constraints have on human action, I wish to draw attention to researcher Stefan Verstappen who provides valuable insight into how individual agency has shaped and continues to shape society (3).

While Machiavellianism has long been associated with politics and public conduct, Verstappen shifts focus somewhat by arguing that people with psychopathic personalities have for thousands of years tended to grasp power and impose their views and deeds on the rest of us. In order to get power, he concludes that people cheat, kill or lie their way to the top. Whether it has been due to the butchery or lies of royalty, religious leaders, politicians or corporate oligarchs, nice guys have tended to finish last.

What leads him to conclude this?

Psychopathy is a personality disorder identified by characteristics such as a lack of empathy and remorse, criminality, anti-social behaviour, egocentricity, superficial charm, manipulativeness, irresponsibility, impulsivity and a parasitic lifestyle (4).

With that definition in mind, look around: the criminal, parasitic activities by bankers that have plunged millions into poverty; the destruction, war and death brought to countries in order that corporations profit by stealing resources; the dropping of atom bombs on innocent civilians in 1945 or the use of depleted uranium which again impacts innocent civilians; and the many other acts, from the use of death squads to false flag terror, that have brought untold misery to countless others just because powerholders wanted to hold onto power or to gain more power, or the wealthy wanted to hold onto their wealth or gain even more.

Based on these terrible deeds, it becomes easy to argue that the people ultimately responsible for them do not adhere to the same values as ordinary people. It may be even easier to conclude that it’s not the cream that rises to the top, but, in many cases, the scum.

Now such a scenario might seem awful enough, but the people who tend to control the world, the ones responsible for these acts, try to impose their warped world view and twisted values on everyone else. Hollywood films, commercials and political ideology are all engaged in forwarding the belief that it’s a dog eat dog world, war and violence abroad is necessary, competition and not cooperative is what counts, aggression and not passivity is the key to ‘success’ and that success equates with amassing huge amounts of personal wealth and lavish displays of conspicuous consumption.

“A person with a psychopathic personality, which manifests as amoral and antisocial behavior, lack of ability to love or establish meaningful personal relationships, extreme egocentricity, failure to learn from experience, etc.” – definition of a psychopath from Dictionary.com

Again, bearing this definition in mind too, the acts mentioned above are not those of properly functioning social beings that contribute to a sense of communality, altruism, love or morality; quite the opposite in fact.

Yet this is the type of stuff that is rammed down our throats as constituting normality every day. Whether it’s the ‘Big Brother’ TV show or ‘The Apprentice’ show, these values are promoted day and night. The ‘Big Brother’ winner is the one who can survive and outdo the competition in terms of the duplicity and backstabbing involved along the way. The winner of ‘The Apprentice’ must be more aggressive, more duplicitous, more devious and cunning and more willing to trample over everyone else. And the winner is judged as such by a multi-millionaire who himself was cunning and ruthless enough to have made it to the top of the pile and has amassed millions for his own personal benefit. These are the role models to be admired and emulated!

These are the measures of success, of sanity, of normality.

“It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.” – Jiddu Krishnamurti

Apprentice competitors are highly driven individuals: not driven by a need to help humanity, but by egocentricity and greed. And, ultimately, these are the values that many mainstream opinion leaders, senior politicians and their corporate masters hold dear.

These values of egocentricity, aggression, competitiveness, duplicity and greed are not confined to some TV show. There are part of a much more sinister process. They are inextricably linked to and underpin the actions that resulted in the killing of half a million children in Iraq for geo-political gain (5) and the sending in of military forces into the jungles of India to beat, rape and dispose of a nation’s poorest people because they stand in the way of profit and greed (6). From Congo and Libya to Syria and beyond, we witness the outcome of a terrifying mindset that is nurtured and encouraged throughout society.

Too many people have become “well adjusted to the values of a profoundly sick society,” whether residing in middle England, middle America or the gated communities of south Delhi or Mumbai. Humanity is being beaten down to be neurotic, vicious and to regard these traits as constituting normal, acceptable behaviour. Thanks to the media, this becomes engrained from an early age as comprising ‘common sense’, and those who question it are merely sneered at or ridiculed by a system that promotes a mass mindset immune to its own lies.

Whether this is all due to psychopathy, narcissism or ‘Machiavellian personalities’ is open to debate. Moreover, as implied at the outset, historical and sociological factors often compel usually decent people to act in terrible ways. The debate within academic sociology between structure and human agency is after all a very long one (7). Whatever the underlying reason, however, as a global community we are being force fed a diet of perverse values and destructive actions, all spuriously justified on the basis that ‘there is no alternative’ and ‘needs must’.

Corporate capitalism, consumerism, the new world order, a war on terror (or drugs or poverty, take your pick), neo-liberalism – call it what you will, but it’s all based on the filthy lie that those in control have wider humanity’s interests at heart. They don’t. By any means possible – war, murder, torture or propaganda, they seek to convince people otherwise. What price human life? None whatsoever for such people.

Grandson of Malcolm X Mysteriously Killed in Mexico

NOVANEWS

The grandson of the late civil rights leader Malcolm X has been violently murdered in Mexico.

 

By JG Vibes

Malcolm Shabazz died at age 29 today after being thrown from a building in an alleged robbery.  The circumstances are rather suspicious at this point considering his anti establishment activism and the fact that there is no suspect, and seemingly no hunt for one.

Also suspicious is that he was being watched by the FBI, and was even arrested by the FBI just a few months ago while traveling to Iran for a film festival.  Since his arrest he has been outspoken online about the illegitimacy of his arrest and the police brutality that he experienced while in custody.  It is important to mention that no one knows for sure what actually happened, but these are important points that should be taken into consideration with this being such a mysterious and hideous crime.

Amsterdam News reported that:

Several reports around the circumstances of his death, stilled unconfirmed, have rumored that he died early Thursday morning, May 9, 2013 from injuries sustained after he was thrown off a building or shot as he was being robbed in Tijuana. Family members have confirmed his death and that he was in Mexico but have not confirmed the exact location or circumstances of how Malcolm Shabazz died.

“I’m confirming, per the U.S. Embassy, on behalf of the family, the tragic death of Malcolm Shabazz, grandson of Malcolm X,” she wrote on her Facebook and Twitter accounts. “Statement from family to come.”

Malcolm Shabazz leaves two daughters behind.  He was heavily involved in activism, and was in the process of working on multiple books and film projects.

Defense MP Paul Hellyer Speaking to Edgar Mitchell at The Citizen Hearing – We Are Not Alone in the Cosmos

Special Report

By Avalon

Facts which at first seem improbable will, even on scant explanation,
drop the cloak which has hidden them
and stand forth in naked and simple beauty –
 Galileo

 

Speaking at The Citizen Hearing on Disclosure in Washington DC this week, Former Defense Member of Parliament Paul Hellyer said in a matter-of-fact way, We Are Not Alone In The Cosmos. To many this might have been shocking, but at The Citizen Hearing, this was a statement many have believed for decades. In fact, one could argue that most of the earths population believe UFOs are real – and therefore, Extraterrestrials are real.

The programming by Hollywood and media in general have purposely created what amounts to a social Force Field around the topic of Extraterrestrials. Movies like War of the WorldsAlien andPredator have characterized Aliens as evil, violent and sinister – ironically, these traits are humanities darkest qualities. There is universal interest in Life on other planets – yet, it is this reality that is made to be feared. The secondary reason this is done is to create fear around the issue of Extraterrestrial Life The primary reason is to keep Alien Technology out of the focus of average people. By making the focus of fear similar to our own dark fears about our humanity, the goal of keeping the focus away from the Alien Technology is achieved. Why else would there have been such ridicule of what seems so common sense – that the Universe is Infinite and even in our own galaxy there are billions of solar systems and planets.

To see just how vast the universe is, one only needs to check out the Hubble Ultra-Deep Field(image)

Are We Putting All Our Best Efforts Into Searching For Exo-Planets That Are Like Earth?

NOVANEWS

Planetquest was originally designed to allow everyone with a computer and internet connection, access to the data from the telescopes that are searching for exo-planets.

 

by Ricky Nem

PlanetQuest, founded by Laurence Doyle in 2000, (planetquest.org &planetquest.jpl.nasa.gov) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the search for exo-planets. PlanetQuest is not being fully supported in it’s work by the parties that hold the power to do so. Planetquest was originally designed to allow everyone with a computer and internet access, access to the data from the telescopes that are searching for exo-planets.

Since the projects inception in 2000 it has met many obstacles including budget cuts due to the lack of support in the search for planets outside of the gravitational field of our home star, the sun (sol). In 2005 the project finally launched its website with the promise of starting The PlanetQuest Collaboratory. On their website it states that

“The PlanetQuest Collaboratory will turn your computer (Mac, PC, Linux, and others) into a virtual astronomical observatory that you can use to make and share real scientific discoveries.”

Which means, finding other planets outside of our solar system. This is surely going to change science forever, but why is it not getting full support? Are the governing bodies trying to hide something? Do they already have information that they want to keep from the public? Why is it not being utilized to save American tax dollars?

The PlanetQuest project would save ALOT of money for sure. This will come along by allowing private citizens to engage themselves and their resources in the hunt for planets like earth, and planets that might harbor resources we as a species and civilization can mine. Not to mention, possibly finding humanoid species, or other intelligent life forms, harboring on another planet like ours.

Today marks a big day in the filed of exo-planet discoveries! There’s a live broadcast with Dr. Laurance Doyle!

“Subcommittee on Space and Subcommittee on Research Joint Hearing – Exo-planet Discoveries: Have We Found Other Earths?

Subcommittee on Space, Subcommittee on Research | 2318 Rayburn House Office Building Washington, D.C. 20515 | May 9, 2013 10:00am

( http://science.house.gov/hearing/subcommittee-space-and-subcommittee-research-joint-hearing-exoplanet-discoveries-have-we)

During this live broadcast and meeting of the some of the best minds in the astronomy filed, we are sure to hear about the discoveries made by the teams as well as hear about the challenges they face while trying to achieve this goal.

If PlanetQuest was to reach it’s goal of launching it’s state of the art BOINC ( Berkely Operated Infrastructure for Networked Computing ) program, we would surely see fruits of the work done by private citizens in minutes, hours, and worst case scenario, days.

But, government agencies have tried to shut them down many times, and continue to stop the support of this program. We can only hope for the best on Laurence Doyle’s behalf. Hopefully someone at the meeting will stand tall, and take a stand to see that the new software and ideology are taken into consideration for the budget’s of the many sciences our society is just now, starting to take seriously.

BREAKING: 3D Printable Gun Ordered to Shut Down by Government

Defense Distributed is complying, DefCad.org back up after removing file

by Adan Salazar

Infowars.com

On the Thursday, May 9 edition of the Alex Jones Show, 3D printing guru Cody Wilson of Defense Distributed announced that the US Office of Defense Trade Controls Compliance, Enforcement Division (DTCC/END) had sent him a letter requesting the group remove all data supposedly in violation of the Arms Export Control Act from public access immediately.

The letter, issued by the US Department of State, says:

“DTCC/END is conducting a review of technical data made publicly available by Defense Distributed through its 3D printing website, DEFCAD.org, the majority of which appear to be related to items in Category I of the USML. Defense Distributed may have released ITAR-controlled technical data without required prior authorization from the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC), a violation of the ITAR.”

USML stands for United States Munitions List, and ITAR stands for the International Traffic in Arms Regulations.

According to the letter, “Pursuant to § 127.1 of the ITAR it is unlawful to export any defense article or technical data for which a license or written approval is required without first obtaining the required authorization from the DTCC. Please note that disclosing (including oral or visual disclosure) or transferring technical data to a foreign person, whether in the United States or abroad, is considered an export under § 120.17 of the ITAR.

Further in the letter, it lists the 3D printable gun files available through DEFCAD.org that the DTCC says violate the ITAR.

“The Department believes Defense Distributed may not have established the proper jurisdiction of the subject technical data. To resolve this matter officially, we request that Defense Distributed submit Commodity Jurisdiction (CJ) determination requests for the following selection of data files available on DEFCAD.org, and any other technical data for which Defense Distributed is unable to determine proper jurisdiction:

1. Defense Distributed Liberator pistol
2. .22 el3ectric
3. 125mm BK-14M high-explosive anti-tank warhead
4. 5.56/.223 muzzle brake
5. Springfield XD-40 tactical slide assembly
6. Sound Moderator – slip on
7. “The Dirty Diane” ½-28 to 3/4-16 STP S3600 oil filter silencer adapter
8. 12 gauge .22 CB sub-caliber insert
9. Voltlock electronic black powder system
10. VZ-58 front sight”

The letter goes on, “Until the Department provides Defense Distributed with final CJ determinations, Defense Distributed should treat the above technical data as ITAR-controlled. This means that all such data should be removed from public access immediately. Defense Distributed should also review the remainder of the data made public on its website to determine whether any additional data may be similarly controlled and proceed according to ITAR requirements.”

Defense Distributed recently garnered major attention after they were able to produce a complete firearm, titled the Liberator, solely using 3D printed parts. Data for the Liberator files have reportedly already been downloaded over 100,000 times.

It’s clear that it was this milestone that inspired the Department of State to pursue compliance orders.

The mandate is in line with the United Nations International Arms Control Treaty which has attempted to regulate firearms by exploiting import-export laws. According to Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, the UN’s Small Arms Treaty “is in fact a massive, GLOBAL gun control scheme.”

CNN Anchors Fake a Satellite Interview in the Same Parking Lot

NOVANEWS

 

“Sorry, we’re experiencing a delay in the broadcast while we both wait for this bus to go by.”

Happy Place

Yes, those are all the same cars. Apparently they thought we wouldn’t notice because Nancy is on the right side of the screen, when in reality she is to Ashleigh Banfield’s left.

See The Atlantic Wire’s excellent breakdown of the shots to see exactly what happened.

Tricky, CNN, very tricky. We understand, though. When a major crime story like the Cleveland Kidnapping breaks, you have to send in Nancy Grace. However, since Nancy Grace is a poorly-medicated vengeance demon who’s always just a bad morning away from ending up on her own show, you also send in a real anchor with whom she can “correspond.”

Unfortunately, it’s hard to get shooting permits in Cleveland on short notice, so you set up in the same parking lot. Do us a favor, CNN, just put them next to each other and have them talk into each other’s faces instead of relaying their words through satellites to come back down 30 feet away like we’re idiots.

Senators Backtrack On Background Checks After Public Backlash

NOVANEWS

Henry Decker

The intense backlash against the senators who voted to block the expansion of gun sale background checks is already having an effect, as senators Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) and Jeff Flake (R-AZ) are now signaling that they actually support background checks — despite their votes to stop them from passing the Senate.

Senator Flake saw his approval rating plummet to 32 percent in the wake of his decision to vote against senators Joe  Manchin (D-WV) and Pat Toomey’s (R-PA) bipartisan compromise bill to expand background checks to cover all commercial gun sales. Flake also drew criticism for lying to a grieving mother about his intentions. Flake’s free-falling ratings left him as the least popular senator in the country, according to PPP — Flake himself described his current standing as “somewhere just below pond scum” — and apparently left the senator reconsidering his decision.

On Tuesday morning, Flake told CNN that he would be willing to reconsider his opposition to the bill if it were rewritten to loosen requirements on internet sales. According to Flake, under the Manchin-Toomey bill, if a gun owner emails or texts their friends about selling a gun or posts it to Facebook, “that is considered a commercial sale.”

While Flake said that he wasn’t sure if Senator Manchin could change the bill’s text in a way that satisfies him, he said he hopes that they can come to an agreement.

It’s unclear, however, whether Flake’s complaint is valid or merely an attempt to quiet his critics. As The Huffington Post points out, the Manchin-Toomey bill makes it clear that background checks wouldn’t be required for gun sales between friends and family members, and stipulates that background checks would only be required for internet gun sales that involve “an advertisement, posting, display, or other listing.” While the question of Facebook posts remains somewhat ambiguous, it seems clear that emails and text messages would be exempt.

Senator Ayotte made a similar attempt to explain away her opposition with a Tuesday editorial for Patch Amherst, in which she claimed, ” I want to set the record straight: I support effective background checks and in fact voted recently to improve the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS).”
