Neo-Christian Churches Are Missing Out On Righteous Indignation

NOVANEWS
Neo-Christians support America’s unjust wars without question and seem oblivious to what the famous Catholic theologian, Thomas Aquinas (1224-1275 AD) said, “He who is not angry when there is just cause for anger is immoral. Why? Because anger looks to the good of justice. And, if you can live amid injustice without anger, you are immoral as well as unjust.”
The unjust military occupation of Palestine by Israel is an example where there is a lack of knowledge and righteous indignation, for the most part, by Neo-Christians.
We Hold These Truths‘ Tom Compton recently learned from Palestinian Ambassador Maen Rashid Areikat (Chief Representative of the General Delegation of the PLO to the United States) about their new understanding that educating American Christians to the plight of Palestinians, is vitally important.

SYRIAN ARMY CRUSHES ISIS IN DAYR-EL-ZOR

A T-90 tank displayed in Aleppo.(Thanks, Khaled Nawaz Al-Nouri

HAMA:  Turk idiots are gnashing their teeth over the losses taken in this province yesterday. Jaysh Al-Fath lost over 45 of their favorite rodents at the break of dawn this last Sunday.  Nusra/Alqaeda also took a battering when it lost close to 18 rats.  Ahraar Al-Shaam, the group which the U.S. refuses to call a “terrorist organization” despite overwhelming evidence that it is exactly that, too, got a real drubbing yesterday and today.  Another group called Al-Jabha Al-Islaamiyya almost went extinct in fighting with the Syrian Army and its allies.   The fighting took place at Tal Bizaam, Tal Huwayr and East of Al-Mawrik (Mork).  Besides the rodent casualties which were documented after field assessments, the SAA destroyed a 57mm cannon, 3 rocket launchers and 6 Toyota pickups with 23mm cannons.

Al-Sa’an – Atharyaa Road:  ISIS lost 9 rodents and 1 pickup with 23mm cannon.

Panorama:  ISIS vultures tried to sneak into this area by moving through the southwestern rim of the city about 48 hours ago.  The pack was made up of about 40 foreign rodents with 4 pickups armed with the usual 23mm cannons.  The SAA had prior knowledge of the attack and was prepared for them.  When the dust settled, 20+ rats were left behind for dead as the surviving scavengers hightailed it back to their base.

Al-Tharda Mountain:  SAAF flew 5 sorties yesterday over this area and west of the airbase.   An ammunition warehouse was destroyed, several armored cars disabled or destroyed and one standard 4-wheel pickup  with cannon was obliterated.

NEWS AND COMMENT:

Tony Gratrex sent me this tape showing how Obama’s claimed “no boots in Syria” is a miserable lie:

THE ZIONIST LOBBY IN EUROPE

NOVANEWS
By:Mantiq al-Tayr

Lobbh

What a cool title.  Now I can hear you all bitching: “But Mantiq that’s Europe’s problem, we here in what’s left of these United States need to focus on all those other groups you’ve written about on your blog who propagandize, radicalize, zionize, and perform all sorts of other izes here in our TSA-protected (hahahahahahahaha and ha!) homeland. We mean groups like Taglit-Birthright, the JNF, JPPI, Friends of the IDF, Ateret Cohanim, The Israel Project, The Israel Leadership Council, Ben Cardin, Israel Scouts, Friends of Israel Scouts, the US Senate, the US House of Representatives, Camp Young Judea, Celebrate Israel, The Jerusalem Post Annual Conference, the Conference of Presidents of Majory American Jewish Organizations, The National Jewish Democratic Council, The Republican Jewish Council,  Haim Saban, Mossad Jane Harman, AIPAC, WINEP, Nefesh B’Nefesh, The Democratic Party, The Republican Party, and did we mention Ben Cardin?”

Oh ye of little fiqh. It turns out that the Israel lobby in the EU is often funded by the “Americans” who also fund many of the aforementioned groups. The study covers a number of organizations set up in recent years to make sure Europe toes the far right zionist line.  For example, one outfit is called the “Friends of Israel Initiative.”

The UK launch of FII was at the British House of Commons in July 2010. The event was hosted by neoconservative think tank the Henry Jackson Society, sponsored by Tory MP Robert Halfon, who at the time was political director of Conservative Friends of Israel, and attended by Aznar, as well as former president of the Italian Senate Marcello Pera and British historian and Henry Jackson Society signatory Andrew Roberts, both co-founders of FII.112 

Now that does look pretty British doesn’t it? Let’s follow the money.

Table

Anybody there look familiar?  Look at all the wonderful groups all coming together. Give you the warm and fuzzies? Read the report and weep. It gets worse with each page.  Zionism has a way of doing that. But I digress.

Here are just a couple of FII-related quotes. Note to Shas party members, red highlighting is done by today’s diminutive guest editor, Mulaykah Al-Almaniyyah.

FII’s largest known American donor is Sheldon Adelson, the world’s 18th wealthiest billionaire.210 Adelson is a conservative Jewish casino billionaire who owns several right-wing Israeli media organisations, including Israel Hayom, Makor Rishon and Maariv, He contributes a considerable sum to the Jerusalem Centre for Public Affairs headed by Dore Gold, and in 2007 he donated $4.5 million to establish a research centre at the right-wing Shalem Center in Jerusalem (now known as Shalem College). 

In 2012, Adelson donated $32 million to Taglit-Birthright Israel, amounting to about 40 per cent of its annual budget.211 Birthright is a Zionist organisation based in West Jerusalem that arranges and finances trips to Israel for Jewish young adults around the world aged 18–26 years old, aiming to strengthen their relations with the State of Israel. In 2013, the Birthright Israel Foundation in New York reported an income of $74,221,738. 

Want just a bit more? Sure you do. Admit it. Here’s a couple of more grams. (Mulaykah, some folks might feel you are over doing it with the red highlighting – naah.)

Roger Hertog is another Conservative Jewish-American businessman turned philanthropist that funds FII, as well as the American Jewish Committee, (which is discussed in the following chapter). Hertog is chairperson of the Tikvah Fund, established by Jewish-American billionaire Zalman Bernstein, and helped to found the Shalem Center. Tikvah continues to fund Shalem College today (it donated $2,656,250 in 2013), and also finances right-wing settlement projects in the occupied territories. Between 2012-2013, Tikvah funnelled money to the following Israeli settlements: $40,000 to an institute in Efrat; $166,150 to Herzog College in Gush Etzion; $587,217 for a leadership programme in Alon; and $663,821 to Kfar Adumim. 

Board members of the Tikvah Fund include: Elliot Abrams, national security advisor during the George W. Bush administration; William Kristol, founder and editor of the right-wing political magazine The Weekly Standard; and Sallai Meridor, former Israeli Ambassador to the United States. 

2. Shas Party chairman and great humanitarian Aryeh Deri is a family man.Exposé : Shas jobs ‘all in the family’ – Deri’s family.

Even Shas party members can understand this. Oh, and near the end of the article we get this golden tidbit:

“Deri was infamously convicted of taking $155,000 in bribes in 2000, during his previous stint as Interior Minister. He was sentenced to three years in prison, but was released for good behavior after 22 months.”

On the other hand, we also learn this:

“He is currently the subject of yet another corruption probe, along with his brother.”

Friends and family.

3. Then there is Shas Party spiritual leader Shalom Cohen.  He has a nice take on Jewish Jihad:

“Do you think that the people of Israel need an army?” Rabbi Shalom Cohen asked during a sermon. “It is God almighty who fights for Israel.”

But I digress.

He has bravely come out in support of Deri despite Deri’s checkered past and the recent allegations.

“God will protect those who work for the good of the public,” he reportedly told Deri. “Continue your holy work for the people of Israel.”

Friends helping friends.

Still, the idea of there being no IDF is kind of appealing.  Maybe he is onto something.

4. de Blasio.

Berlinrosen.

Jonathan Rosen.

Bloomberg. Technion. Berlinrosen.

Jacob’s Technion-Cornell Institute. Bloomberg.

Bloomberg. $100 million. Cornell Tech.

Cornell Tech. Berlinrosen.

Friends.

5. And thus we have things like this. Iraqi war veteran and Muslim hater. Note that the former soldier seems to think he was fighting Islam. Wonder why?

Not friends.

6. Okay, it is video time and thanks to our chief orintho-musicologist here at Mantiq al-Tayr, Mulaykah Al-Alamaniyyah, we have two wonderful Palestinian hip-hop vids.  The first one is really beautifully done and it includes subtitles so Fox-News Middle East experts can follow along.  The woman’s voice is especially enchanting. Here name is Terez Sliman. The second one Tamer was nice enough to just go do in English anyway.  I like the title, “Scarlett Johansson has gas.”

Anyway, here is the first one, God of Revolution.

 

And now we come to a true appreciation of Scarlett Johansson.

Can we be friends?

Supreme Court in London: A Jewish Closed Shop

NOVANEWS
Posted by: Kitty Moses
“There is a temptation to see the UK as a country under Jewish occupation.  When one looks at the over-representation of Jews in Finance, Government, the Media etc, it does appear that the Ruling Class of the UK is not only socio-economically dominant over the rest of the population, it is also ethnically distinct.  I am not for a moment trying to say that all Jews are a part of the Establishment, or that there are no poor and downtrodden Jews; I know a fair number of Jews (by ancestry) who are struggling to get by just as everyone else is, and they certainly are not a part of the despotic elite.
Whilst it is ridiculous to group together all people who happen to have some Jewish ancestry, as exploiters of the common people, there is a certain amount of truth in the idea that the Jewish elite is synonymous with the UK Establishment.  The Monarchy and Aristocracy are so interwoven with the Jewish banking families, that it is nigh on impossible to separate them.  Whilst the Jewish infiltration of the Ruling Class is obvious, we need to be careful to separate the ‘little Jew’ from those who rule over all of us (and exploit the little Jew as much as they exploit the Goyim), but this should not cow us into silence as to the obvious racial and/or religious character of those in positions of power.
In the UK, the Media is thoroughly Zionist; the ruling families are of Jewish stock; the Prime Minister and the Leader of the Opposition are Jewish; the economy is squarely in the hands of Jewish financiers; the servile political attitude to Israel would make the sycophantic philo-Semitic men and women in Washington DC blush.
All who comment on the Jewish domination of the UK are accused of anti-Semitism, and are jeered as fantasists.  One body which cannot be smeared by such infantile name-calling is my favourite Kosher read, the Jewish Chronicle.  The Jewish Chronicle has confirmed quite openly what non-Kosher researchers are vilified for stating; the Judiciary is dominated by Jews!  So, not only the Legislative and Executive branches of government are Jewish-controlled, the Judiciary is also.  As the Jewish Chronicle boasts, the previous, current, and next incumbent of the Office of Chief Justice of England and Wales, was, is and will be, a Jew.  If any other source provided such information, it would instantly be attacked by Searchlight, the UAF and myriad other self-righteous anti-indigenous organisations.  However, it is the Jewish Chronicle which has stated what many dare not.
The following two articles from the Chronicle throw a spotlight on the Jewish domination of the Supreme Court, and by extension the entire legal system of not only England and Wales, but the entire United Kingdom.  They illustrate how the Goyim are not masters in their own house, but are subject to the rule of the self-Chosen people.  These are not anti-Semitic fantasies spread by (boo hiss) evil fascists, but are facts as told by the main newspaper of the Jewish community….

http://www.thejc.com/lifestyle/how-jewish-is/how-jewish-lord-chief-justice-phillips

The post of Lord Chief Justice has been in Jewish hands before: the previous incumbent, Lord Woolf, was born into a Newcastle Jewish family. But Lord Phillips, who steps down in October, is from solid Anglo-Saxon stock. Or is he?

Against:

Just take a look at the name. Nicholas Addison Phillips is not a Yiddishe moniker. Neither is his background remotely Jewish. He had a genteel upbringing attending Bryanston School in Dorset before serving in the Royal Navy, where he was a commissioned officer, noch. In fact, when he qualified as a barrister, Lord Phillips specialised in maritime law. We Jews like to wander, but we tend to do it on dry land. There seems nothing remotely kosher about him.

For:

And yet, in a speech this week — admittedly given at the East London Muslim Centre — he spoke of his maternal grandparents, two young immigrants to this country. Said Lord Phillips: “They were Sephardic Jews and had eloped to this country from Alexandria because they understood that England was a country in which they would enjoy freedom.” One Jewish barrister was staggered when he heard the news, saying: “It’s like the Pope announcing he’s Jewish.” And yet the signs are there if you look for them. Lord Phillips is, after all a lawyer; he lives in Hampstead; and he has quite bushy eyebrows. Weird that no one guessed before, then.

Verdict:

Jewish as charged, m’lud.

So we say he is 88% Jewish

http://www.thejc.com/news/uk-news/69907/lord-neuberger-head-supreme-court

The head of the civil judiciary has been named as the next Supreme Court president.
Lord Neuberger’s appointment as the most senior judge in the UK was confirmed on Thursday. He will be sworn in on October 1, succeeding Lord Phillips.
Lord Neuberger, 64, is the brother-in-law of Baroness Neuberger, senior rabbi of the Reform’s flagship West London congregation.
The former David Neuberger began his career working for N M Rothschild and was called to the bar in 1974. In 1996 he became a Chancery division judge and an Appeal Court judge in 2007. Two years later he was named Master of the Rolls.
Although he was critical of the decision to abolish the role of the House of Lords as the UK’s most senior court, he said he was committed to his new place at the helm of the supreme court.
He said: “I will do my best to ensure that it continues to play its proper role in upholding the rule of law, and applying and developing the law in a coherent and principled and practical way, appropriate for today’s world.”

Britain is the most corrupt country in the world

NOVANEWS

Britain is the most corrupt country in the world, claims mafia expert Roberto Saviano: ‘It’s not the bureaucracy, it’s not the police, it’s not the politics but what is corrupt is the financial capital’
Britain is the most corrupt country in the world, according to journalist Roberto Saviano, who spent more than a decade exposing the criminal dealings of the Italian Mafia.
Mr Saviano, who wrote the best-selling exposés Gomorrah and ZeroZeroZero, made the comments at the Hay Literary Festival. The 36-year-old has been living under police protection since publishing revelations about members of the Camorra, a powerful Neapolitan branch of the mafia, in 2006.
He told an audience at Hay-on-Wye: “If I asked you what is the most corrupt place on Earth you might tell me well it’s Afghanistan, maybe Greece, Nigeria, the South of Italy and I will tell you it’s the UK.
“It’s not the bureaucracy, it’s not the police, it’s not the politics but what is corrupt is the financial capital. 90 per cent of the owners of capital in London have their headquarters offshore.
“Jersey and the Cayman’s are the access gates to criminal capital in Europe and the UK is the country that allows it. That is why it is important why it is so crucial for me to be here today and to talk to you because I want to tell you , this is about you, this is about your life, this is about your government.”
Prime minister David Cameron faced growing calls for the UK to reform the offshore tax havens operating on its own Crown Dependencies and Overseas Territories, as Britain hosted an Anti-Corruption Summit earlier this month.
The UK ranked 10th in Transparency International’s Corruption Perceptions Index 2015, which measures the perceived levels of public sector corruption worldwide.
Mr Saviano also weighed in on the EU referendum debate, arguing a vote to leave would make the UK even more exposed to the organised crime.
He said: “Leaving the EU means allowing this to take place. It means allowing the Qatari societies, the Mexican cartels, the Russian Mafia to gain even more power and HSBC has paid £2 billion Euros in fines to the US government, because it confessed that it had laundered money coming from the cartels and the Iranian companies. We have proof, we have evidence.”

Examining American Exceptionalism

NOVANEWS

Image result for American Exceptionalism CARTOON

By Stephen J. Bergstrom

On the surface, American exceptionalism appears to represent a boldly-stated concept but when contrasted to the subtleties of personal experience, the lessons and flow of history and individual geographically-rooted place, horribly small-minded and delusional, conceivable only as a statement by a crazed, power-hungry overlord to an underling.

Synchronized beautifully in 2004 by a senior aide to Bush Jr. to Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Ron Suskind writing in the New York Times Magazine, American Exceptionalism is,

”…an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality — judiciously, as you will — we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do…” (http://www.nytimes.com/2004/10/17/magazine/17BUSH.html).

To begin examination, let’s take a closer look at basic definitions (courtesy of Merriam-Webster).

Exceptional:

  1. not usual
  2. unusual or uncommon
  3. unusually good

ism:

  1. the act, practice, or process of doing something
  2. behavior like that of a specified kind of person or thing
  3. unfair treatment of a group of people who have a particular quality

Exceptionalism:

  1. the condition of being different from the norm; also
  2. a theory expounding the exceptionalism especially of a nation or region

Combining the above, we realize that exceptionalism equates to perception or a perceiving of self that endows the perceiver with uncommon power.

In the case of the United States, seeming high-level leadership self-perceives that the U.S. is “exceptional” (i.e., unusual or unusually good in possession of the ability to act) and does not need to conform to normal rules or general principles. In worldly terms, the U.S. exits the brotherhood of nations and is empire among middling servant states.

Voicing American Exceptionalism

U.S. President Barack Obama speaking at the 2009 NATO Summit, Strasbourg, France,

“I believe in American exceptionalism…we have a core set of values that are enshrined in our Constitution, in our body of law, in our democratic practices, in our belief in free speech and equality, that, though imperfect, are exceptional…”

U.S. President Barack Obama speaking to West Point’s graduating class 2014,

“America must always lead on the world stage…The United States is the one indispensable nation…I believe in American exceptionalism with every fabric of my being…”

Then actor and to-be President, Ronald Reagan at the First Conservative Political Action Conference, 1974,

“…We cannot escape our destiny, nor should we try to do so. The leadership of the free world was thrust upon us two centuries ago in that little hall of Philadelphia. In the days following World War II, when the economic strength and power of America was all that stood between the world and the return to the dark ages, Pope Pius XII said, ‘The American people have a great genius for splendid and unselfish actions. Into the hands of America God has placed the destinies of an afflicted mankind.’

We are indeed, and we are today, the last best hope of man on earth.”

_________

The City on the Hill: Finding the Roots to American Exceptionalism

First Governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony John Winthrop (1588-1649) represented early American Puritanical Tradition. Addressing a bevy of puritan emigrants waiting to disembark the Arabella to create the first settlement in what would become the first of the New England states, Winthrop declared,

“…we shall find that the God of Israel is among us, when ten of us shall be able to resist a thousand of our enemies…for we must Consider that we shall be as a City upon a Hill, the eyes of all people are upon us…”

(https://thehistoricpresent.wordpress.com/2010/06/28/the-city-upon-a-hill-and-puritan-hubris/)

That forenamed city destined to be recast time and again by America’s political leadership and undoubtedly favored by those behind that leadership, first by Reagan in his same above speech;

“Standing on the tiny deck of the Arabella in 1630 off the Massachusetts coast, John Winthrop said, ‘We will be as a city upon a hill. The eyes of all people are upon us, so that if we deal falsely with our God in this work we have undertaken and so cause Him to withdraw His present help from us, we shall be made a story and a byword throughout the world.’ Well, we have not dealt falsely with our God…”

President-elect John F. Kennedy said, in an address to the Massachusetts Legislature on January 9, 1961,

“During the last 60 days I have been engaged in the task of constructing an administration…. I have been guided by the standard John Winthrop set before his shipmates on the flagship Arabella [sic] 331 years ago, as they, too, faced the task of building a government on a new and perilous frontier. ‘We must always consider,’ he said, ‘that we shall be as a city upon a hill—the eyes of all people are upon us.’”

From George H. W. Bush’s “thousand points of light” to Bill Clinton’s “America has a special role in the eyes of God” to John Kerry’s “…we have moved closer to the America we can become – for our own people, for the country, and for all the world…”, to lesser weighted John Bolton’s “The most important thing you need is a president who is proud of the United States of America, who believes in American exceptionalism” to Condy Rice’s, “When the world looks to America, they look to us because we are the most successful economic and political experiment in human history. That is the true basis of American exceptionalism…” special effort has been made to convince America she is biblically-blessed and exceptional.

A Truth Hidden, Half Told

But conviction does not always mesh with contradiction nor will those convicted remain so in the face of evidence, direct personal experience and the geography of place.

Alexis de Tocqueville was one. The son of Norman aristocrats, de Tocqueville lives a short life. Born in Paris, July 29th, 1805, he travels to America in 1831 and publishes the tome upon which his fame rests,Democracy in America, in the year of his thirtieth birthday, 1835 and in which he observed that America was creating ”…a distinct species of mankind…(http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/special/politics/american-exceptionalism/).

But in what ways distinct?

In Tocqueville’s eyes, Americans will be birthed first by mindset in the Winthropian, “… Puritanical origin…” and meshed then with “…exclusively commercial habits…”

And in what ways convicted?

The American, this distinct species of mankind, de Tocqueville asserts will become convicted, will become aware of their personal distinctiveness through uniqueness of place, through the,

“…country they inhabit which seems to divert their minds from the pursuit of science, literature, and the arts, the proximity of Europe … to fix the mind of the American upon purely practical objects. His passions, his wants, his education, and everything about him seem to unite in drawing the native of the United States earthward…” (http://www.visionandvalues.org/2011/04/the-roots-of-tocqueville-s-american-exceptionalism/#sthash.CIhYaf5j.dpuf).

And therein lies contradiction and echoes so much of what the world says about America, about despising the policies of a government etched in puritanical righteousness and commercial industry and imported inventiveness that exports war and fiat currency but loving a people contradicted and tempered by place, by the geographical, by the land, by windswept prairies, by three coasts, by 14,000 foot mountaintops, by desert, by waterways, by Great Lakes as big as oceans, by the echo and remaining presence of the country’s native Turtle Island, by the original earth-based inhabitants, by the combined sources of the continent’s non-corporate literature and artistic impulses and the unbidden anti-hero like suspicion, resistance and mockery at the everyday level to technological boondoggle and oversized government.

This Curious Exceptional Dilemma

In the hands of the few, trademarked American Exceptionalism acts as a battering ram, is a corporate brand name front that unites evangelism, militarism and Keynesianism, that installs dictators, that perpetuates privately-owned fiat currencies, that topples the same dictators to create in name-only democracies, that trains militants and insurgents, that funds gladio-styled terrorism, NATO, international banking organizations, the IMF, the World Bank, Export-Import Banks, that emasculates Europe, that fans and funds conflict between installed dictators and in name-only democracies, between insurgents and loyalists, this City on the Hill, these thousand points of light.

But below the surface, this thing about America that is exceptional but not distinct from other cultures, her land, her native roots, her resistance by natives long thought exterminated and to be made extinct by cavalries and cannons, by legislation, by armed men riding trains gunning down millions of bison, acts of terrorism and food and shelter-based genocide, by reservation life, this America inspired by the land, by her earthiness, influences this unexceptional America, is non-corporate artistic, makes small press literature, invents good things, does not war, combats big pharma, forced vaccinations, big ag, big biz, big banks, chemtrails, opposes GMOs, opposes false flags, staged shootings and propagandized media, billion dollar political campaigns and privately-owned, fiat-issuing central banks, hallmarks all of Exceptional Empire, writes songs, sings, dances, drums, shapes pottery, tears down pork barrel, fractionalized fiat currency hydro-electric dams, honors the sacred, loves animals, grows gardens, all as if a secret to celebrity-promoted corporate media but known by the hearts of many, by foreign tourists walking through centuries old Santa Fe, traipsing through Navajo country, watching salmon run, peering at petroglyphs in HOPI land, known by creatives, known by seekers, known by the evidence, becomes human, not exceptional.

Daughters for Sale: How Young American Girls Are Being Sold Online

NOVANEWS
  • By GLORIA RIVIERA JACKIE JESKO SALLY HAWKINS
  • WATCH How Young Girls Are Being Sold for Sex on Backpage.com

    In an old home movie, young Natalie is laughing and running around with a soccer ball. She’s around 12 years old, and she looks at the camera and says, “When I grow up, I would like to be a doctor.”

    But a few years later, that laughing, carefree young girl was sold for sex allegedly through the website, Backpage.com. She estimates she was paid for sex over 100 times, and she firmly believes that the site made it possible for her pimp to post ads offering her for sex over and over again.

    “Continuously. All day, every day. 24/7,” Natalie told ABC News “Nightline.” She has asked us to refer to her as “Natalie” for this report, and her parents have asked that we do not use their last name.

    Natalie is now a 21-year-old mother with a toddler and another baby on the way. She is part of a major lawsuit against Backpage.com, the highly controversial online classifieds site that is currently being investigated by the U.S. Senate for its alleged connection to underage sex trafficking.

    Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Missouri, told “Nightline” that Backpage “requires more of someone who wants to sell a motorcycle than of someone who wants to sell a child.”

    When Natalie was 15 years old, she said she made a decision she would regret for the rest of her life. She ran away from home because she said she received a bad grade at school and was nervous about how her parents would react to it.

    “I thought maybe things would be easier if I could just go do it on my own,” she said. “I didn’t want them to… be disappointed… I had told all my friends that I was going to run away.”

    Natalie said she ran across a soccer field, jumped a fence, found a bus stop and took a bus to downtown Seattle, where she met an older girl at a youth shelter.

    “She was very familiar with the shelter and the Seattle area in general and she told me… we could go hang out,” Natalie said. “I had never smoked weed before, never drank… I don’t know. I was having a good time.”

    Back at home, her mother Nacole found a letter Natalie had left behind. She called her husband Tom and said they needed to go to the police immediately.

    “I was in shock,” Tom said. “You know, kind of just floored that– Gone? Why? You know? Where? You know, how?”

    Out on her own, Natalie quickly learned the dark side of life on the streets. She said her older friend was turning tricks right in front of her.

    “We would walk on the highway and then people would come pick her up and I would sit in the back seat and then she would sleep with them,” she said. “A lot of them would ask if they could sleep with me and she would tell them ‘no,’ until a pimp picked us up and then took us to his house.”

    That’s when Natalie said she was raped for the first time. She had been a virgin.

    “After it happened he threw a towel at me and some carpet cleaner and told me to clean up the carpet because there was blood,” Natalie said. “That was pretty difficult. And then after that, they cut all my hair off and then put me in some really skimpy clothes and taught me how to walk in heels,” she continued. “I got really scared after that, and I ended up running out of there.”

    Natalie said she sneaked out of the garage door and found a police officer who called her mother.

    “I was definitely scared and I just wanted to go home. I was nervous,” she said.

    Her family was overjoyed to have her back, but Natalie was still grappling with how to deal with what had happened to her.

    “I didn’t know how to treat her. I didn’t know if she wanted me to hug her,” her father Tom said. “For the first time since the day she was born… It felt awkward to hold my own kid.”

    At school, Natalie said word had gotten around what had happened to her, and she said she was bullied and called horrible names. This feeling of not belonging drove her to make another bad choice: she ran away a second time with the help of that older friend she had met in Seattle. Natalie was still just 15 years old.

    “I ran down the street to the bus stop… and she was parked there waiting for me,” Natalie said.

    Then she met 32-year-old Baruti Hopson. She said he was kind to her at first and gave her a place to stay, but then she said things took a horrible turn.

    “I had started talking to him, confided in him a little bit about family life and just how stressed out I was,” she said. “He had asked me if I had ever worked before, and I told him, ‘briefly’ … I didn’t really know what I was doing.

    “And then he told me that I wouldn’t be on the streets,” Natalie continued. “And I was like, ‘Well what does that mean?’ And he’s like, ‘Well I’m not going to have you walking the streets’ … And then that’s when Backpage came into play.”

    Natalie said Hopson told her Backpage.com was “safer” and that it was easier “not to get caught.”

    Backpage’s site is surprising simple, similar to Craigslist, but with a racy adult services section with categories like “Escorts” and “Body Rubs.” These are technically legal categories, but many in law enforcement say these ads are thinly veiled code for prostitution. While it is free for someone to post adult services ads, Backpage makes money by offering paid add-ons, including the ability to re-post the ad every hour and to post it in multiple neighboring cities.

    “He put me in all these clothes, took some pretty provocative pictures of me and then got to Backpage, and then you can click on to post an ad,” she said. “He just showed me how to do it, so I could do it myself.”

    Natalie said the website asked if she were 18 years or older, but “a simple yes click was about as far as that went.”

    With Backpage ads posted with titles such as “Well worth it, 150 an hour” and “It won’t take long at all,” Natalie said she was working every single day and started earning as much as $4,000 a weekend, handing over all the cash to Hopson.

    “He started getting physically abusive and really, I couldn’t even go in the bathroom without the door being unlocked,” Natalie said. “He would sleep in the living room next to the front door, so I couldn’t leave.”

    Natalie’s mother Nacole said she was shocked to learn there was a website where this could to happen to underage girls, like her daughter.

    “I live in an American town, how can my kid be sold on the internet?” she said.

    “When you hear that your 15-year-old child is posting an ad for sex or for rape in her case, and that she’s getting 25 to 30 calls an hour, and you’re thinking, ‘Well how many of these is she having to answer? I mean, there’s 24 hours in a day… how many times a day is my child being raped?” Nacole added.

    But the sad truth is Nacole is among many American mothers who have had to ask themselves the same question.

    A mother who’s asked us to call her “Debbie” said her teenage daughter, who we’re calling “Crystal,” left home one night after an argument. It only took 48 hours of her being gone for Debbie to find her images on Backpage.

    “I remember that she had on the see-through lacy teddy,” Debbie said. “And she’s 14.”

    Crystal says that when she left home, she arranged to stay with a friend’s boyfriend’s mom. Instead of giving her a safe place to stay, she says this woman forced her into prostitution. Crystal says they were re-posting her Backpage ad every five minutes and forcing her to have sex with the men who would come to the house.

    Crystal, who is now 19, told “Nightline,” “It’s hard being that young and being trapped in a room and not knowing if you’ll go home to your mom, or if you’ll come out of there alive.”

    “Megan,” another mother who asked us to use an assumed name, said her 15-year-old daughter was also sold for sex on Backpage. Her daughter, who we’re referring to as “Kim,” says she went to a party hosted by a friend’s older boyfriend on her fifteenth birthday. It was fun at first, but then Kim said she was told she couldn’t leave and was forced to take racy photos to post on Backpage.

    “I got a call from a friend of mine that said that I needed to check Backpage because she thinks that she had saw my daughter on Backpage,” Megan said. “So I checked, and sure enough, her ad was there.”

    Megan said she called the police and told them she saw Kim on a Backpage ad, and that they needed to do something.

    “I told them they had to go get her,” she said.

    Both of these girls were eventually rescued by police. The adults who posted them to Backpage were convicted in court. Kim and Crystal are also suing Backpage, and they are also represented by Natalie’s lawyers, Erik Bauer and Jason Amala. Backpage denies these allegations and is fighting them in court.

    But so far, every lawsuit filed by a trafficked underage girl against Backpage has been dismissed because of a law called the Communications Decency Act of 1996. The law protects Backpage, among others, from being held legally responsible for what users post on its website. Also called the CDA, the law shields websites or online publishers for information posted by third parties.

    “If someone publishes a faulty motorcycle [ad on Backpage.com], the buyer of that motorcycle shouldn’t be able to sue Backpage merely for posting the ad, that doesn’t make sense,” said ABC News’ senior legal correspondent Sunny Hostin. “Interestingly, under the law, there is no difference between Backpage posting the advertisement for the faulty motorcycle and posting the advertisement for the underage girl being trafficked for sex.”

    Backpage, which is based in Dallas, has repeatedly claimed that they are part of the solution, not the problem. The company told ABC News in a statement that it employs moderators who diligently screen ads to stop underage trafficking on its site. They added that they have voluntarily undertaken a multi-tiered “policing system to prohibit and report attempts at human exploitation and the advertisement of prostitution” that screens for words and phrases that might “suggest illegal activity” and that the company actively cooperates with law enforcement.

    “While the experiences of children (and adults) who have been exploited are tragic and heartbreaking,” Backpage told “Nightline” in a statement today. “The solution does not lie in making online service providers responsible for millions of posts by third-party users (in Backpage.com’s case, approximately 50 million posts per year presently) – the practical effect of which is inevitably highly restrictive censorship or the total banning of certain categories of online content so that online service providers are not in constant anxiety about potential liability for the one ad that slipped through their moderation systems.”

    But many in law enforcement have openly challenged these claims, including Cook County Sheriff Thomas Dart, who in 2015 successfully petitioned every major credit card company to cut ties with Backpage. The only available payment methods on the site now are Bitcoin or mail-in check.

    Natalie’s father Tom says his daughter’s disappearance pushed him to the breaking point. He would spend days in the car, driving around Seattle, searching desperately for his missing girl. Until one night, he said things went too far.

    “I was driving down where these people hang out, and it was pretty obvious to me that this was a pimp and a girl,” he said. “I saw this, and I just got infuriated seeing this guy and this gal and I just turned my truck at him and floored it.

    But Tom didn’t go through with it. “I had intended on hitting him,” he continued. “And I just figured, I’m going to get my daughter on the news, you know, um, and the way I’m going to do that is I’m going to kill this pimp, you know? I bought a fifth of good whiskey and I said, ‘I’m done.’ That was when I started drinking… I almost killed myself doing that.”

    Then, on the 108th night Natalie was missing, her Backpage ad was targeted in a sting set up by the Seattle Vice Squad. One of their officers had posed as a client, and when she walked into his hotel room, he stopped her.

    “He says, ‘I know who you are, Natalie,’ and I mean I can only imagine how big my eyes were when he said that,” Natalie said. “Instantly I saw hundreds of lights that seemed outside, just storms of cops outside.”

    One of those officers was Bill Guyer, a longtime Vice detective who spends much of his time on Backpage trying to rescue trafficked girls like Natalie. He and Natalie instantly formed a special bond the night she was rescued.

    “I remember meeting Det. Guyer, and he actually drove me to the jail, and he kind of relaxed me… almost reminded me of my dad,” Natalie said.

    Det. Guyer met Natalie’s parents and started a relationship with them too. He then helped Natalie build up the courage to testify in the trial of Baruti Hopson, who was sentenced to 26 and a half years in prison for promoting the commercial sex abuse of a minor.

    “I tell her and every other girl that even though they don’t want to go to court, I don’t want to go to court, but I’d like to get them to the point where they’re like, ‘I can’t wait to get on the stand and point them out to you, that’s the piece of crap that did this to me,’” Guyer said.

    Guyer and the rest of the Seattle Vice Squad agreed to let “Nightline” embed with them as they set up a sting through Backpage, the kind of operation that’s become commonplace in police departments across the country. “Nightline” first met with Det. Lincoln, who’s asked that we change his name because of his frequent undercover assignments.

    Lincoln showed “Nightline” the ins and outs of posting on Backpage. Lincoln says there are many commonly-used terms that may flag to him and the other detectives that a girl on Backpage is underage, like “new in town” and “eager to please.” It’s a code he says he’s learned through experience tracking down underage girls listed on the site.

    But “Nightline” wanted to see what would happen if a Backpage ad didn’t just use these coded terms and instead blatantly suggest an underage girl was part of the deal. Would the ad be flagged and taken down by Backpage’s moderators?

    So Det. Lincoln posted an ad for an 18-year-old escort, adding in a line that said she had “a younger friend” who was available as well. Minutes after he posted the ad, calls and texts started streaming in. The ad was up and running.

    The ad remained up for about 36 hours, leading to dozens of phone calls, texts and even an arrest captured on “Nightline’s” cameras. The ad was only taken down after “Nightline” sent an anonymous email to Backpage’s dedicated email address for suspected child trafficking. It took eight hours to receive a response, which said to contact the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, or NCMEC. The ad was taken down shortly after Backpage’s email response was sent.

    Backpage later told “Nightline” in a statement that even though they thought that the ad did not clearly advertise that a girl under 18 was involved, their moderators did take it down and they say they banned the account. They also reported the ad to NCMEC.

    Yiota Souras, general counsel for NCMEC, said 73 percent of the reports they receive from the general public about suspected underage trafficking involve a Backpage post.

    Souras told “Nightline” she is skeptical of Backpage’s claims that they are closely monitoring their site, and of their attorney Liz McDougall’s claim that Backpage is “online to fight human trafficking online.”

    “I don’t think you can be in the business of providing basically an online bazaar for escort ads that includes the purchase and sale of children for sex, and say that you are online to help fight the problem,” Souras said.

    In March, the Senate voted to hold Backpage CEO Carl Ferrer in contempt of Congress after he failed to appear at a hearing about online sex trafficking conducted by the Senate Subcommittee for Permanent Investigations.

    “It was a unanimous vote”, said Sen. Rob Portman. “First time in 21 years this has happened. It’s a big deal.”

    When asked why to specifically include Backpage in a hearing on online trafficking, Sen. McCaskill replied, “Backpage is the major player in this space. Therefore they have to be investigated. That’s as complicated as the subject is.”

    A circuit court is expected to rule on the contempt charge sometime in the coming months.

    Backpage also refused to respond to the Senate Subcommittee’s subpoenas for internal company documents relating to how it moderates its adult services ads, and exactly how much money they’re making off of them. The Senate is now seeking to enforce the subpoena.The nearly 200-page Senate report is available for download here.

    Despite this refusal, the Senate’s own investigators say they were able to obtain company emails from Backpage to its moderators. One email in the Senate report addresses underage ads specifically, and contains a line instructing moderators not to delete an ad unless they are “really very sure” the girl is underage. Other emails in the Senate report suggest Backpage was telling its moderators to simply edit out words and pictures from posts if they did not comply with Backpage’s terms of service. They are told to then post the edited ad anyway, even though the investigators say this editing would not change the nature of the underlying transition.

    “We’re talking about big money,” said Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio. “And we have evidence that leads us to believe that they have edited ads in order to keep their profitability.”

    Backpage declined to comment on the Senate’s findings, but their lawyers are currently fighting the contempt charge in a D.C. court. The court will decide if Ferrer will be compelled to testify and if Backpage has to hand over their internal documents. In court filings, Backpage claims the Senate’s request is a violation of the First Amendment, because it “seeks every bit of information relating to every editorial decision made in the past six years.”

    Backpage’s corporate group is projected to have a revenue of $173 million dollars this year alone, although they will not say what percentage of that comes from the adult ad section, according to documents from the Senate Subcommittee on Permanent Investigations.

    “I’m betting that when we get all the financials they’re not making much money selling motorcycles. But they’re making a whole lot of money selling children,” said Sen. McCaskill. “I’m betting that’s why they’re working so hard at keeping this information out of the public eye.”

    Backpage, which was owned by Village Voice media until 2012, was sold to an “unnamed Dutch holding company” in December 2014, according to news articles at the time. “Nightline” discovered that CEO Carl Ferrer had opened a business in the Netherlands, which seems to be running two escort ad-based websites called NakedCity.com and EvilEmpire.com, as well as a very similar version of Backpage called “Cracker.” It is available almost everywhere except the United States.

    Ferrer declined “Nightline’s” repeated requests for interview, and when we tracked Ferrer to a classified ad industry conference in downtown Amsterdam, he again refused to speak with us.

    “He is in Amsterdam… because he wants to avoid the bright light of attention that we are placing on his company,” McCaskill said. “I don’t think Amsterdam is far enough for him to go to avoid that bright light.”

    Back in the U.S., others, like Natalie and her family, are waiting for their day in court. Natalie is hoping her Washington state lawsuit, which focuses on the claim that Backpage knowingly developed itself into an online marketplace for illegal prostitution, will be the first of its kind to be successful against the company.

    “To whoever owns Backpage, Carl Ferrer, whoever– he’s got to go home at night and know that he’s selling kids today,” her father Tom said. “He’s just as accountable as the pimp that sold her, in my mind.”

    Natalie’s attorney Erik Bauer said, “Reports of child sex trafficking have increased over the last five years due to the internet. According to the AIM Group, Backpage controls 80 percent of that market… this is a big business.” AIM Group is an interactive media and classified advertising consulting organization.

    Backpage responded to the allegations laid out in the Washington state lawsuit, according to court documents, stating that, “Backpage does not allow advertisements on its website to contain naked images, images featuring transparent clothing, sexually explicit language, suggestions of an exchange of sex acts for money, or advertisements for illegal services. In addition to these rules, specifically for advertisements posted in the “escort” section of its website, Backpage does not allow any solicitation directly or in ‘coded’ fashion for any illegal service exchanging sexual favors for money or other valuable consideration, any material on the Site that exploits minors in any way, or any material … that in any way constitutes or assists in human trafficking.”

    For Natalie, her horrific experience also has robbed her of a piece of her high school years.

    “I’ve never been to a football game. A high school football game,” she said. “I’ve never had a prom. I’ve never been to homecoming, and I see all my pictures. All my friends’ pictures on Facebook, and they have all that. They have memories… It makes me a little bitter.”

    But in all the sadness, one ray of light for Natalie has been the special relationship she and her parents have now with Det. Guyer.

    “To this day, six years later, he calls me on my birthday. Every year,” she said. “I actually said he’s the godfather of my little girl.”

    “He’s my hero,” Tom added. “He saved my little girl and brought her home.”

    As Our Past Wars Are Glorified This Memorial Day Weekend, Give Some Thought To Our Prospects Against The Russians And Chinese In World War III

    Image result for World War III, CARTOON

    Paul Craig Roberts

    The Saker reports that Russia is preparing for World War III, not because Russia intends to initiate aggression but because Russia is alarmed by the hubris and arrogance of the West, by the demonization of Russia, by provocative military actions by the West, by American interference in the Russian province of Chechnya and in former Russian provinces of Ukraine and Georgia, and by the absence of any restraint from Western Europe on Washington’s ability to foment war.http://thesaker.is/how-russia-is-preparing-for-wwiii/

    Like Steven Starr, Stephen Cohen, myself, and a small number of others, the Saker understands the reckless irresponsibility of convincing Russia that the United States intends to attack her.

    It is extraordinary to see the confidence that many Americans place in their military’s ability. After 15 years the US has been unable to defeat a few lightly armed Taliban, and after 13 years the situation in Iraq remains out of control. This is not very reassuring for the prospect of taking on Russia, much less the strategic alliance between Russia and China. The US could not even defeat China, a Third World country at the time, in Korea 60 years ago.

    Americans need to pay attention to the fact that “their” government is a collection of crazed stupid fools likely to bring vaporization to the United States and all of Europe.

    Russian weapons systems are far superior to American ones. American weapons are produced by private companies for the purpose of making vast profits. The capability of the weapons is not the main concern. There are endless cost overruns that raise the price of US weapons into outer space. The F-35 fighter, which is less capable than the F-15 it is supposed to replace, costs between $148 million and $337 million per fighter, depending on whether it is an Air Force, Marine Corps, or Navy model. http://www.cnbc.com/2014/07/31/how-dods-15-trillion-f-35-broke-the-air-force.html

    A helmet for a F-35 pilot costs $400,000, more than a high end Ferrari.http://www.airforcetimes.com/story/military/2015/10/26/f-35-helmet-costs-400000-4-times-predecessor/73826180/

    (Washington forces or bribes hapless Denmark into purchasing useless and costly F-35:http://sputniknews.com/news/20160528/1040395012/denmark-f-35-military-nato-lockheed.html)

    It is entirely possible that the world is being led to destruction by nothing more than the greed of the US military-security complex. Delighted that the reckless and stupid Obama regime has resurrected the Cold War, thus providing a more convincing “enemy” than the hoax terrorist one, the “Russian threat” has been restored to its 20th century role of providing a justification for bleeding the American taxpayer, social services, and the US economy dry in behalf of profits for armament manufacturers.

    However, this time Washington’s rhetoric accompanying the revived Cold War is far more reckless and dangerous, as are Washington’s actions, than during the real Cold War. Previous US presidents worked to defuse tensions. The Obama regime has inflated tensions with lies and reckless provocations, which makes it far more likely that the new Cold War will turn hot. If Killary gains the White House, the world is unlikely to survive her first term.

    All of America’s wars except the first—the war for independence—were wars for Empire. Keep that fact in mind as you hear the Memorial Day bloviations about the brave men and women who served our country in its times of peril. The United States has never been in peril, but Washington has delivered peril to numerous other countries in its pursuit of hegemony over others.

    Today for the first time in its history the US faces peril as a result of Washington’s attempts to assert hegemony over Russia and China.

    Russia and China are not impressed by Washington’s arrogance, hubris, and stupidity. Moreover, these two countries are not the native American Plains Indians, who were starved into submission by the Union Army’s slaughter of the buffalo.

    They are not the tired Spain of 1898 from whom Washington stole Cuba and the Philippines and called the theft a “liberation.”

    They are not small Japan whose limited resources were spread over the vastness of the Pacific and Asia.

    They are not Germany already defeated by the Red Army before Washington came to the war.

    They are not Granada, Panama, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, or the various Latin American countries that General Smedley Butler said the US Marines made safe for “the United Fruit Company” and “some lousy bank investment.”

    An insouciant American population preoccupied with selfies and delusions of military prowess, while its crazed government picks a fight with Russia and China, has no future.

    SAUDI HUSBAND SHOOTS MALE DOCTOR

    NOVANEWS

    childbirth

    A husband in Saudi Arabia was angry after learning a male doctor would be assisting his wife for childbirth. The jealous husband did not want any other man to see his wife naked. Therefore, when a male doctor was assigned to assist the man’s wife during labor and delivery of the couple’s baby, the husband was not pleased. After a successful delivery of the pair’s baby, the husband tricked the OB/GYN into meeting him in the hospital garden where he proceeded to shoot the unsuspecting doctor.

    Newsweek reports that an angry Saudi husband attempted to kill the male doctor that delivered his wife’s baby. The man went to the King Fahad Medical City in Riyadh back in April where his wife was presented in labor. The mother was taken to the maternity ward where she was assigned the male OB/GYN, Dr. Muhannad Al Zabn. The doctor was charged with caring for the laboring women and eventually assisted in the childbirth which meant he was exposed to the woman’s genitals during the birthing process.

    The husband of the birthing woman did not want another man to see his wife’s private areas and was enraged when a male doctor was assigned to her ward. However, instead of confronting the doctor during labor, the husband waited and devised a plan to rid the man who saw his wife’s most intimate regions from the Earth completely. The husband called Dr. Muhannad Al Zabn and asked if he would meet him in the hospital’s garden so that he could thank him for delivering his baby without incident.

    However, when the husband arrived at the garden to meet the doctor, he had another hidden agenda in mind. After greeting the doctor, the man pulled out a weapon hidden under his clothing and fired upon the doctor. The doctor was hit by the bullet and hospital staff immediately descended on the scene providing emergency care to the critically injured staff member. Meanwhile, the father fled the scene.

    According to the Gulf News, the doctor was listed in critical condition with severe injuries from the shooting but is now recovering from the ordeal. The father was later arrested by local authorities and taken in for questioning. The father, who has not been named by local police, says that he was upset that the male doctor saw his wife naked and felt that the hospital should have provided a female gynecologist for the delivery.

    Childbirth is supposed to be a joyous occasion. However, for one Saudi father it turned violent after he became upset with his wife being assigned a male doctor. (Image via Shutterstock)

    In fact, the man says that he wife was seen by a female gynecologist for her entire pregnancy and that he doesn’t understand why Dr. Muhannad Al Zabn was assigned to her for birth. He says that the hospital should have taken into consideration that many women and their husbands do not want male doctors seeing their genitals and that the idea of a male OB/GYN made him uncomfortable.

    Though most people agree that the father was wrong for attempting to kill the male OB/GYN, some note that the hospital should have honored the couple’s wishes to have a female doctor on hand.

    Though the man’s actions have been deemed criminal, many seem to be siding with the husband when it comes to ensuring women are segregated from male doctors in the hospital setting. In 2011, more than 100 doctors and religious leaders wrote to the ministry of health urging them to build women-only hospitals. A Saudi woman started a Facebook group named “Pure Hospitals,” a campaign for hospitals where all staff — from surgeons to cleaners — were women. The idea was allegedly designed by the supporters to ensure that “vices such a exchanging looks” could not start “unethical relationships” while the woman was seeking treatment or care.

    “The mixing of men and women in hospitals and other places leads to corruption and vices such as exchanging looks, breakdowns in barriers between men and women, and unethical relationships forbidden in Islam.”

    Do you think that hospitals should be required to provide female OB/GYNs to patients who are uncomfortable with a male doctor assisting in childbirth? Should hospitals be required to maintain a female delivery staff for cases such as these? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
