The US Is Bombing Syria So Much That Watchdogs Can't Keep Up

Allegations of civilian casualties as a result of United States coalition airstrikes in Iraq and Syria have swelled so much since January that airstrike watchdog Airwars can't keep track. Unable to keep up with the number of bombings by both Russia and the United States coalition, the organization announced today that it no longer has the resources to carry out its typical investigations of Russian airstrikes, and is devoting its resources to the US-led coalition bombing campaign only.

"Revolving door lobbyists are exploiting the rules"

There are now 432 former members of Congress working as registered lobbyists. This “revolving door” is ruining the integrity of our political system. It’s no secret that lobbying firms can offer exorbitant salaries to lawmakers after leaving office. That conflict of interest leaves a cloud over Capitol Hill making us wonder who is truly operating in the public interest.

Since Donald Trump’s election, former Special FBI Agent Coleen Rowley has been alarmed over with how Democratic hawks, neocons and other associates in the “deep state” have obsessed over “resurrecting the ghost of Joseph McCarthy” and have built political support for a permanent war policy around hatred of Russia.

TransCanada Gets Presidential Permit for Keystone XL

It's official: moments ago TransCanada said the U.S. Department of State issued a presidential permit for the construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline, ending a multi-year controversial, at times acrimonious debate over the future of the pipeline. The pipeline linking Canadian oil sands to U.S. refiners had been blocked by Barack Obama, who said the pipeline would do nothing to reduce fuel prices for U.S. motorists and would contribute emissions linked to global warming.

Court Rules in Favor of Police Who Pounded on Wrong Door, Didn't Identify Themselves, Then Killed Innocent Man for Holding a Gun

According to a federal appeals court, police will not be held accountable for banging on the wrong door at 1:30 am, failing to identify themselves as police, and then repeatedly shooting and killing the innocent homeowner who answered the door while holding a gun in self-defense. Although 26-year-old Andrew Scott had committed no crime and never fired a single bullet or lifted his firearm against police, he was gunned down by police who were investigating a speeding incident by engaging in a middle-of-the-night “knock and talk” in Scott’s apartment complex.

After US Refused to Charge Them for Laundering Terrorist Money, Megabanks Busted AGAIN

An investigative reporting coalition recently released a report alleging a multi-billion dollar money laundering operation that has affected hundreds of banks and companies in 96 countries including the repeat offender, HSBC. In 2012, HSBC, one of the world’s largest banks, settled with the U.S. Government, avoiding criminal prosecution of its executives, for helping to launder money for Mexican drug cartels as well as Al Qaeda. According to the US Senate’s report, which investigated the matter, HSBC provided a “gateway for terrorists to gain access to U.S. dollars and the U.S. financial system.”

Has Erdogan gone fully rogue?

Over the last 20+ years, America hsa applied the nebulous term ‘rogue state’ with a bit of impunity. Syria was called a rogue state for having the audacity to pursue an independent foreign and economic policy in the Arab world. Yugoslavia was called a rogue state by the US for trying to defend the borders of what until the foreign meddling of the 1990s, was the most successful multi-cultural state in late modern Europe and possibly the world.

Lawsuit: Police Destroyed Farm House To Capture Homeless Man Armed With An Ice Cream Bar

Is it possible to arrest an unarmed homeless person without destroying the residence he's hiding in? To the Fresno County Sheriff's Department and Clovis PD (and far too many other law enforcement agencies), the question remains rhetorical. David Jessen's farmhouse felt the full, combined force of two law enforcement agencies and all their toys last June. According to his lawsuit [PDF], a homeless man was rousted from a nearby vacant house after he was discovered sleeping in the closet. He left peacefully but was soon spotted by the construction crew breaking into Jessen's house. The construction worker, god bless him, called the police because he thought they could help.
