As World War I drew to a close in November 1918, over 2.5 million soldiers of the Imperial German Army remained in the field. They brought training, experience and battle-hardened attitudes with them as they streamed back across Germany’s borders.
These soldaten soon found ways to deploy their skills at home. Supported by Minister of Defense Gustav Noske, right-wingers — including one Corporal Adolf Hitler — organized ex-soldiers into Freikorps, and armed them with surplus military weaponry. These militia brutally crushed Germany’s nascent post-war democratic movement. For the next 20 years, they provided the core of the feared Brownshirts, street thugs who helped Hitler and the Nazis into power.
Fast forward 100 years. Another faltering empire in domestic political crisis, the United States, brings its own frustrated warriors and their weapons back home …

When high-dollar pharmaceutical companies have new drugs in the works, they wouldn’t want any supplements or affordable natural solutions to have any impact on their corner of the market. So, what’s Big Pharma to do? Maybe pull some strings with regulators in an effort to get the competition out of the way. This may be what’s happening with a recent move by the Food and Drug Administration to remove anti-inflammatory supplements from the shelves.
As reported by the Alliance For Natural Health (ANH), the FDA issued at least 10 warning letters last year to supplement companies for making claims about their products’ abilities to affect the body’s natural method of protection and healing—inflammation. Further, another 150 companies were contacted about the use of inflammation-based claims.

As a follow-up to some earlier posts, this post brings into view the public perception component of the housing crisis, in real time, in a definitive, compelling manner.
Last week, in a quiet, bucolic part of this lovely state of California, the jury rendered a verdict in a predatory lending case.
Let’s recall the basic story:
(1) Lenders recklessly created residential real estate loans, out of thin air, granting loans to anyone who could fog a mirror. Radical new loan products emerged, such as no income no job loans, option loans, pick a payment, etc. This loan generation process generated fees to the lender for the loan origination. Other fees were tacked on to the loan, and many industries benefited, such as appraisers, realtors, insurers, as well as companies who built houses, and provided goods to furnish all the new houses filled with brand new home owners. The govt was fully supportive of this massive effort, too.

Since March 30 of this year when bestselling author, Michael Lewis, appeared on 60 Minutes to explain the findings of his latest book, Flash Boys, as “stock market’s rigged,” America has been learning some very uncomfortable truths about the tilted playing field against the public stock investor.
Throughout this time, no one has been more adamant than Terrence (Terry) Duffy, the Executive Chairman and President of the CME Group, which operates the largest futures exchange in the world in Chicago, that the charges made by Lewis about the stock market have nothing to do with his market. The futures markets are pristine, according to testimony Duffy gave before the U.S. Senate Agriculture Committee on May 13.

There will be a gun turn in event on 26 July, 2014 in Baltimore City, Maryland. While these events are commonly labeled with the propaganda term “buyback” the guns were never owned by the people attempting to buy them.
The location for the event will be at the New All Saints Catholic Church in the 4400 block of Liberty Heights Avenue from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The event offers a $100 gift card for turning in guns. From wbaltv.com:

The old Dickens quote “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times” is pretty much always applicable to a world as big and complex as this one. But lately, as the disparity between financial markets (best of times) and geopolitics (worst) has grown to almost comical proportions, Dickens has been sounding even more apropos than usual. To take just a few “worst of times” examples:
In our last discussion, Gordon T. Long predicted that another credit crisis was forming. That was nearly two months and sure enough we’re witnessing the start of a sub-prime auto debt bubble. Great call on Gordon’s part. Lately he’s been writing about the stock-buyback bubble. This work is starting to gain traction as well. David Stockman had a recent article about IBM’s rampant buyback’s. Gordon’s work is always ahead of the curve, which is why he’s a regular on FSN.

After what the US government did to Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria and Libya – does THIS sound familiar?
from New Insight:
Friends, this is a MUST LISTEN. The words of Sergei Glazyev, the Economic Advisor to Russian President Putin are a stunning wake up call for anyone with the capacity to think independently & critically. For those who understand the over reach of US empire and Washington fascism over the past decade alone (in the name of the precious 9/11 fable), we ignore these realities at OUR OWN peril. ~SGT
“Kiev is clearly conducting a policy of genocide to eliminate the whole population of Donbass… They’re destroying hospitals, kindergartens, schools. The fate they’re preparing for the people of Donbass is serfdom… It is obvious that the United States is fully controlling the Kiev Nazis, Poroshenko personally, and the government, and is pushing them to pursue this war against Donbass to the very end… THIS IS A WAR BY THE UNITED STATES AGAINST US… So we have to understand that the key to resolving the catastrophe of Ukraine is to be found in Washington. That’s where Nazism has to be defeated..”
- Sergei Glazyev Economic Advisor to Russian President Putin
Recorded on June 10, 2014, Glazyev discusses the massive militarization of Ukraine, intended not only to crush Donbass, but to re-take Crimea in order to start another world war for further consolidation of the US hegemony over Eurasia.

As I have alluded to before, I receive a copious amount of tips, photos, videos, audio recordings and now books in my snail and e-mail boxes. When I do find the time to review said material, I usually conclude that the information is either unreliable, unprovable, or it really doesn’t fit the theme of NorthWest Liberty News. The purpose of this article is to summarize and review one such piece of information that I received early last week. I must confess, I struggled with the idea of releasing this information because it is told from a third-person perspective. That’s not to say that the information should be dismissed out-of-hand, but I much prefer, as all of you probably do, speaking with the source instead of someone who spoke to the source. However, The Rolling Stones convinced me long ago that you can’t always get what you want.
Even with the long-held program of dumbing down the populace firmly in place, many people realize that one day we will have to “pay the piper” for all of our reckless spending and perpetual debt. Sadly, I think that those same people are just hoping that the bill arrives after they are long gone. However, if the audio below is to be believed, their hopes are soon to be shattered.
from King World News:
Kaye: “One of the arguments in favor of precious metals, even though they’ve been constrained, is what’s going on in Ukraine and to an extent in Gaza. I just got back from Russia and had a chance to meet with some important people in Moscow, where I now have a home….
“One of the most recent dinners I had was with a Russian senator who is on the ‘no fly’ list, so of course he’s important and close to Putin. All I can tell your readers is that he was adamant that Russia had nothing to do with the downing of the Malaysian aircraft MH17.
To strategically down this aircraft made no sense for Russia or for the pro-Russian forces in Ukraine. He was insistent that the pro-Russian forces did not have anti-aircraft weapons that could reach that altitude. The pro-Russian forces have only weapons that attack low-flying aircraft so they can protect themselves up to 3,000 meters. Well, the Malaysian aircraft MH17 was shot down at an altitude in excess of 10,000 meters.
[Ed. Note: WARNING - For any normal human being who possesses empathy, this is a deeply disturbing video. Perhaps this is the type of atrocity to which Netanyahu was referring when he told CFR member and NBC mockingbird Brian Williams, “A Man’s Gotta Do, What A Man’s Gotta Do”]
UPDATED 7/22/14: The young man who was murdered in Shajiya after being wounded by an Israeli sniper, has been confirmed as Salem Khalil Salem Shammaly, 23-years-old, resident of Shajiya.
A video has emerged of the targeting and killing by a sniper of a Palestinian civilian in Gaza City’s Shujaiya neighborhood where Israeli shelling killed dozens of civilians and caused massive destruction early on Sunday morning.
The Israeli military just shot a Gazan man trying to reach his family, during an announced ceasefire. He was with a group of municipality workers and international human rights defenders who were attempting to retrieve injured people in the Shujaiya neighborhood.
“We all just watched a man murdered in front of us. He was trying to reach his family in Shujaiya, he had not heard from them and was worried about them. They shot him, and then continued to fire as he was on the ground. We had no choice but to retreat. We couldn’t reach him due to the artillery fire and then he stopped moving.” Stated Joe Catron, US International Solidarity Movement (ISM) activist in Gaza.
