. . . this [Nuremberg Trial] staff is about 75% Jewish . . . the charge 'a war for the Jews' is still being made and in the post-war years it will be made again and again.

This practice of constitutional revision by an unelected committee of nine, always accompanied (as it is today) by extravagant praise of liberty, robs the People of the most important liberty they asserted in the Declaration of Independence and won in the Revolution of 1776: the freedom to govern themselves.
Civil disobedience is not our problem. Our problem is civil obedience. Our problem is that people all over the world have obeyed the dictates of the leaders of their government and have gone to war, and millions have been killed because of this obedience.
Israel’s Prime Minister [Benjamin Netanyahu] is well-placed to explain to the U.S. Congress the alleged danger of a nuclear Iran. After all, it was Israel and its allies in Washington who fabricated this issue to begin with.
There are millions of Christians in America’s churches that couldn’t tell you what’s in the Bible to save their lives. They couldn’t quote the Ten Commandments; they couldn’t quote the Golden Rule; they couldn’t name Christ’s apostles; they couldn’t quote five verses of Scripture from memory if their lives depended on it.
In all ages the people of the world, equally with individuals, have accepted words for deeds, for THEY ARE CONTENT WITH A SHOW and rarely pause to note, in the public arena, whether promises are followed by performance.

MIT economist Jonathan Gruber’s factually impoverished testimony on Obamacare [before the House] didn’t get nearly the attention it should have, as congressional Democrats cleverly decided to release a report on CIA torture abuses on the same day.
Back in January upon coming into office, Syriza probably could not have won a referendum on whether to pay or not to pay. It didn’t have a full parliamentary majority, and had to rely on a nationalist party for Tsipras to become prime minister. (That party balked at cutting back Greek military spending, which was 3% of GDP, and which the troika had helpfully urged to be cut back in order to balance the government’s budget.)
Seeing how unyielding the opposition was, Syriza’s stance was: “We would like to pay. But there’s no money.”
This kept throwing the ball back into the troika’s court. The Institutions were so unyielding that Syriza’s approval rating in the polls rose by 13% by June. Greek voters became increasingly incensed at the Troika’s demand for further pension cuts and privatizations.
Recent stories about the Honolulu rail project’s finances have raised concerns that officials may be fudging the numbers for political purposes.
By Natalie Iwasa, CPA

Several articles have been published recently that raise questions about Honolulu rail’s financial information. Errors and inconsistencies I’ve noticed have led me to question the integrity of the project’s financial plan. As a CPA, I have very little faith in the projected revenues and costs that have been provided to us.
In response to questions by the state director of the Hawaii Department of Budget and Fiscal Services, HART provided a document showing detailed revenue through December 31, 2014. That document, “Revenues from January 1, 2007 to December 31, 2014,” shows total revenues of $1.669 billion. (For those who understand accounting, this document also mixes cash basis and accrual basis amounts.)
Mrs. Haverbeck, along with three of her colleagues and supporters, were arrested after having had their homes raided and ransacked by German police, where documents, books and other personal items were seized. Germany has some of the most tyrannical anti-free speech and thought laws in the world. If found guilty, Mrs. Haverbeck could face up to five years in prison.
“Ursula Haverbeck’s arrest was predictable from the start,” Warren Routledge, author of the must-read book Holocaust High Priest: Elie Wiesel, Night, the Memory Cult & the Rise of Revisionism, explained to AMERICAN FREE PRESS in a recent interview. “The German people have been under tight Zionist Jewish control for decades. It is also a poorly kept secret that the federal republic’s current chancellor, Angela Merkel, has been a CIA [Central Intelligence Agency] asset for decades. With the country’s unification after the fall of the Berlin Wall, she made a seamless transition from reporting to the CIA about her communist bosses to snitching on the intimate workings of the new, united government of Germany.”
The chief of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker has made a last-ditch effort to keep Greece from leaving the Euro. He said that the creditors' terms are not - quote - "stupid austerity" and that the Greek people should "not commit suicide out of fear of death" in the upcoming referendum on those terms, on July 5th. Mr. Juncker also repeatedly pointed out that he's not the one to blame for putting the country on the brink of financial ruin and now let's head to Athens, where the people are anxiously following the news from Brussels. RT's Peter Oliver and Harry Fear have more on the ongoing Greek crisis.
Book TV introduction: Evan Thomas talked about his book, Being Nixon: A Man Divided, about the life and career of Richard Nixon.

Hawaii Political Info introduction: The three Jewish Associate Justices (Elena Kagan, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Stephen Breyer) and one considered to be Jewish by some (Sonia Sotomayor), predictably voted en bloc for same-sex marriage on Friday. All that was needed was one non-Jewish vote, provided by Catholic Arthur Kennedy. While Jews reputedly make up 2 percent of the population, they make up 33 percent or 44 percent of the U.S. Supreme Court, depending on whether or not Sotomayor is counted.
Associate Justice Antonin Scalia was aggrieved over this flagrant flouting of the U.S. Constitution to meet an agenda and wrote a scathing dissenting opinion, which can be read here from pages 69-77.
The same five Associate Justices voted together to save Obamacare on Thursday, with Chief Justice John Roberts, another Catholic, voting with them.
“No longer may this liberty be denied,” Justice Anthony M. Kennedy wrote for the majority in the historic decision. “No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice and family. In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than once they were.”
Marriage is a “keystone of our social order,” Justice Kennedy said, adding that the plaintiffs in the case were seeking “equal dignity in the eyes of the law.”

Hawaii Political Info introduction: Although this program aired before the Red Hill fuel tank release of what the Navy says is 27,000 gallons in January 2014, the information in this program about Hawaii's water system lifts our understanding of the Red Hill fuel release, the consequences to our island water and how our island ecosystem is a network of interrelated influences and consequences.
PBS Hawaii — Insights introduction: New Access to fresh water in our island state unlocks the doors to development, farming and tourism. But who actually owns our water?
