Four years ago, a recruiting video was produced by the IDF snipers’ training unit, which is part of Lotar, the Anti-Terrorism School. Originally it was shown at the infantry and paratroopers units from where most recruits arrive. It is impossible to join the IDF as a sniper, it is seen as a military profession derived from a more basic training; in this case infantry.
Against all odds, it reached the internet. In the day this article is being written, July 11, 2013, the shocking video has reached almost a quarter million views.
“ADHD is fraud intended to justify starting children on a life of drug addiction,” said Dr. Edward C. Hamlyn, a founding member of the Royal College of General Practitioners, back in 1998 about the phony condition. Adding to this sentiment, psychiatrists Peter Breggin and Sami Timimi, both of whom oppose pathologizing the symptoms of ADHD, say that ADHD is more of a social construct than it is an objective “disorder.”
In 1950 America was conservative, prosperous and, superficially anyway, happy. The war had been won. America had no competition of any kind anywhere. Calm prevailed. The races lived separately with little conflict. Men went to work and women stayed home to raise the kids. The schools saw their job as teaching reading, grammar, spelling, and arithmetic.
Divorce was almost unheard of, bastardy—as it could then be called—close to zero. Drugs, pornography, free love and perversion—as homosexuality was then said to be—were at most distant rumors. Perhaps they could be found in Paris and New York, where such exotics as William Burroughs and Henry Miller abode. These things were mere frissons around the edges.
Recognize the propaganda from the mainstream media here folks. They want you to think this is how happy people live their lives, completely unaware that their governments is tyrannical and violating everyone’s rights for the illusion of safety.
From CSIRO and “increased CO2 has benefits” department: Increased levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) have helped boost green foliage across the world’s arid regions over the past 30 years through a process called CO2 fertilisation, according to CSIRO...
The American military has up to the present date not covered itself in glory. Military glory can only be obtained in the defense of the nation from unprovoked military attack by another country. Let’s disabuse ourselves of smug ideas that Ft. Sumter and Pearl Harbor were unprovoked attacks. There have been no unprovoked attacks since the War for Independence from England. Starting in 1861 and ever since, the American military has been the aggressor, controlled and exploited by American politicians on behalf of private bankers.
Immigrants—both legal and illegal—have accounted for all of the job gains in the U.S. labor market since 2000, according to a report that highlights the stiff competition for jobs in a tight economy as Congress debates adding more workers to the mix.
The Center for Immigration Studies report, which is being released Wednesday, says 22.4 million immigrants of working age held jobs at the beginning of this year, up 5.3 million over the total in 2000. But native-born workers with jobs dropped 1.3 million over that same period, from 114.8 million to 113.5 million.
As Prof. Raine explains, the best way to understand psychopaths is to imagine what it would be like to have no conscience. Psychopaths have only an abstract understanding of right and wrong. They do not feel the strong inhibitions against evil that come naturally to the rest of us. Many people believe moral decisions should be made calmly and rationally, but that does not always happen; most of us are held back from evil by physical sensations of revulsion. People without these sensations may do horrible things.
As our nation rounds the corner on another birthday and continues its long history of trying to figure out exactly what it means to be a nation of liberty and justice for all, it's a good time to look at an increasingly "lost" group in our culture:...
Judicial Watch announced today that it has obtained documents in response to local, state, and federal records requests revealing that a little-known unit of the Department of Justice (DOJ), the Community Relations Service (CRS), was deployed to Sanford, FL, following the Trayvon Martin shooting to help organize and manage rallies and protests against George Zimmerman.
In the dozen years since the 9/11 attacks, we've watched as a classified new legal regime for government surveillance has been hashed out, local police forces have become heavily armed military-type units and a whole new layer of bureaucracy has hatched to provide us with an abundance of “homeland security.”
Proponents of this build-up argue that it's made us safer. They point to hundreds of foiled plots to make their case. But Trevor Aaronson, author ofThe Terror Factory: Inside the FBI's Manufactured War on Terrorism, dug into these supposedly dastardly plots and found that they are much less than meets the eye.
The extra-constitutional “agreements”(that means illegal agreements) were inked late last month in Washington, D.C., at the fourth annual meeting of the illegally created “U.S.-Russia Bilateral Presidential Commission Working Group on Emergency Situations.” This extra-governmental organization, formed under the Obama administration, is one of almost two dozen similar “working groups” bringing together top U.S. and Russian officials.
In what amounts to blatant censorship, the “mainstream” media has virtually ignored the wave of anti-Obama sentiment in Egypt during the uprising. Here are few images you won’t see on CBSCNNABCNBCMSNBC.
HONESTY IS NOW BEYOND THE RANGE OF ACCEPTABLE HUMAN BEHAVIOR
Three behavior-shaping events — the sorry sagas of Edward Snowden, Julian Assange and Bradley Manning — are all meant to condition us into passive acceptance of what we are told to do. They have brought a dystopic future into the present moment, in which patriotism is rewarded by torture, and it is now a crime to be honest.
These very public passion plays, all involving the staged dramas of seemingly ordinary people who blow the whistle on the creeping tyranny of government corruption, have imbued in our minds that profound penalties await us should we vary from the mandatory public narrative and attempt to contradict what the government commands us to do.
"Today's SPLC spends most of its time — and money — on a relentless fund-raising campaign, peddling memberships in the church of tolerance with all the zeal of a circuit rider passing the collection plate. 'He's the Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker of the civil rights movement,' renowned anti-death-penalty lawyer Millard Farmer says of Dees, his former associate, 'though I don't mean to malign Jim and Tammy Faye.'
Evolution is neither a thinking being or a secret mechanism that causes flora and fauna to strive toward refinement. It is simply a model of game theory for the explanation of developments and manifestations in nature, to which also the behavior of people belongs. Charles Darwin’s thesis on “Survival of the Fittest” in his epochal work “The Origin of the Species” doesn’t necessarily mean “the survival of the stronger,” as is often circulated, rather “the survival of those that adapted.”
I call for a new American Revolution declaring our independence from the surveillance state and government control of information, said Thomas Drake, a former whistleblower and intelligence official at the National Security Agency.
