Security Director Tries but Fails to Remove Jury Rights Activists from Public Sidewalk

October 9, 2014

By John Vibes

Jury Rights activists in the Philadelphia area recently encountered resistance in front of a local courthouse, when they were attempting to educate their neighbors about jury nullification.

Among the activists was James Babb, an organizer behind the recent push to install jury nullification billboards in cities throughout the US.

For those who don’t know, jury nullification is basically the right for any juror to not only judge the facts of the case, but to also actually judge the validity of the law itself.

Incumbent Brickwood Galuteria Faces Rough Challenge from Chris Lethem

Incumbent Brickwood Galuteria (D), senate majority leader in the state legislature, is being opposed this election by Chris Lethem (R) for District 12 (Waikiki, Ala Moana, Kaka‘ako, McCully & Mo‘ili‘ili). Both have agreed publicly to a debate, but with the election on our heels, nothing's been scheduled.

What appears to be the opening salvo by Chris Lethem happened at the Waikiki Board meeting on September 9. Brickwood Galuteria, who is known for his special interest in kupuna issues, taking a leading role in the Olelo public service kupuna series among other activities on behalf of kupuna, introduces himself at the 32 minute 55 second mark, followed by Chris, who takes off the gloves. The pair are next heard from at the 58 minute 16 second mark and then give their closing remarks at the 1 hour 23 minute 15 second mark.

Chris has a copy of what he said at the board meeting on his campaign website. Click here to see it.

The next Waikiki Board meeting is scheduled for 7pm, Tuesday, October 14, at the Waikiki Community Center, 310 Paoakalani Avenue.

Mattera, who publishes Daily Surge, followed up. “How does someone on a government salary most of their career accumulate your type of wealth?” Still, there was no answer from Reid.

White House Reporter on Hot Mic after Ebola Press Briefing: 'We're Screwed'

“S--t!” says a male reporter immediately after the October 3 White House Ebola briefing by senior administration officials.

A female journalist notes, “The most interesting thing is the travel stuff.”

“Yeah, we’re screwed,” exclaims yet another reporter.

“If this DC test comes back positive, I’m doing (inaudible) all weekend,” the woman informs her colleagues. She was referring to Ebola tests on patients in Washington, DC, which as of today (October 8) have all come back negative.

The male reporter then notices his “stupid mic,” followed by, “Yeah, did you hear that everyone?” as he returns to his seat to throw the mic onto it.

The trio had just listened to the following:

Key Democrats: Endless War Is Official U.S. Doctrine

The Intercept

By Glenn Greenwald

Key Democrats, Led by Hillary Clinton, Leave No doubt that Endless War is Official U.S. Doctrine

Long before Americans were introduced to the new 9/11 era super-villains called ISIS and Khorasan, senior Obama officials were openly and explicitly stating that America’s “war on terror,” already 12 years old, would last at least another decade. At first, they injected these decrees only anonymously; in late 2012, The Washington Post - disclosing the administration’s secret creation of a “disposition matrix” to decide who should be killed, imprisoned without charges, or otherwise “disposed” of - reported these remarkable facts:

Among senior Obama administration officials, there is a broad consensus that such operations are likely to be extended at least another decade. Given the way al-Qaida continues to metastasize, some officials said no clear end is in sight. . . . That timeline suggests that the United States has reached only the midpoint of what was once known as the global war on terrorism.”

In May, 2013, the Senate Armed Services Committee held a hearing on whether it should revise the 2001 Authorization to Use Military Force (AUMF). A committee member asked a senior Pentagon official, Assistant Secretary Michael Sheehan, how long the war on terror would last; his reply: “At least 10 to 20 years.” At least. A Pentagon spokesperson confirmed afterward “that Sheehan meant the conflict is likely to last 10 to 20 more years from today — atop the 12 years that the conflict has already lasted.” As Spencer Ackerman put it: “Welcome to America’s Thirty Years War,” one which – by the Obama administration’s own reasoning – has “no geographic limit.”

Hawaii Political Info note: The late Aaron Russo, a Jew, said endless wars on undefined "terrorists" was foretold to him before 9/11 by Nick Rockefeller — a member, Russo said, of the inner sanctum of the Council on Foreign Relations. Russo gave an interview about Nick and the CFR sometime after 9/11 and warned about the Council, with which Hillary Clinton said she had a strong relationship. His warning has been largely overlooked in recent years by both the mainstream and alternative media.

Paul Craig Roberts: VP Biden's Harvard Speech on Foreign Policy Could Backfire

Hawaii Political Info note: RIA Novosti is a Russian-government-owned news outlet.

WASHINGTON, October 4 (RIA Novosti), Liudmila Chernova – Speech of the US Vice President Joe Biden can backfire on Washington, as it embarrasses the European Union members and demonstrates the US has intimidated them, Paul Craig Roberts, former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury, believes.

"One of the possible consequences is that his speech embarrasses European governments by showing that Europe is Washington's vassal," Roberts told RIA Novosti on Friday. "The other is that by pressing Europeans to act against their own interests, Washington might have been too much of a bully and hurt its future influence in Europe."

US Vice President said Thursday that the United States and US President Barack Obama, in particular, had forced the European Union members to "take economic hits to impose cost" on Russia.

"It is true that they did not want to do that. But again, it was America's leadership and the President of the United States insisting," Biden noted, speaking at Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government.

"It is a known fact that Western European peoples and business interests, and even the governments themselves oppose Washington's sanctions on Russia," Roberts noted, underlining that many Europeans know full well that Russia is not responsible for the trouble in Ukraine. "They know that the cause is Washington's use of the CIA and the NGOs established by the National Endowment for Democracy and other US "democracy groups" to orchestrate protests and use the protests to overthrow the elected government of Ukraine."

"Washington forced its European vassal states to impose sanctions on Russia," the former assistant Secretary of the Treasury said, adding that one of the US aims was to portray Russia, not Washington, as the government that is interfering in the internal affairs of Ukraine and must be punished.

"By punishing Russia, the sanctions support Washington's propaganda that it is Russia that is the aggressor," he asserted. "This image also serves to boost the budgets of Washington's military and security complex in order to defend NATO countries against the alleged "Russian threat."

Another aim of the sanctions is to break up Europe's economic and political relationships with Russia, according to Roberts.

"Washington is afraid that growing relationships between Europe and Russia will loosen Washington's hold on Europe. European countries do not have independent foreign policies, and Washington wants to keep it that way," Roberts stated.

In addition, Roberts thinks its goal was also to answer the Republicans' claims that Obama had taken a weak position in foreign policy and toward Russia, as Biden's speech comes one month before the November general elections in the US.

"Biden emphasized that Obama was strong and forced Europe to take action against Europe's own interests. In other words, Obama gives orders to Europe just as Stalin gave orders to the Warsaw Pact," former assistant Secretary of the Treasury said. "Obama, like Stalin, is a man of steel. The speech is a domestic political message designed to neutralize Republican criticisms of the Democrats' foreign policy," Roberts explained.

Over the past few months, the United States has introduced several rounds of economic sanctions against Russia, blaming Moscow for meddling in Ukraine's internal affairs – claims that Russia has repeatedly denied. The EU and US allies have followed in Washington's footsteps, drawing up their own blacklists.

In August Moscow responded to western sanctions, implementing a one-year ban on certain food imports from the European Union, the United States, Australia, Canada and Norway.

Is US Govt Actively Working to Spread Ebola in America?

Natural News

By Mike Adams
Editor, Natural News

The more closely our team investigates the facts about Ebola here at Natural News, the more I'm convinced the United States government is intentionally trying to increase the spread of the outbreak rather than contain it. I realize this assertion may sound outlandish, but review the evidence below and decide for yourself. This story is extensively sourced with verifiable links.

As microbiologist Dr. Gil Mobley recently said in protest of all the lies and disinformation, "CDC is lying! ... [and] If they're not lying, they are grossly incompetent." [1]

Here are the top ten pieces of evidence that point to the U.S. government seemingly wanting to see Ebola spread even more. Because, just as Dr. Mobley says, if all this isn't intentional, then it's a showcase of extreme incompetence on the part of government:
