International Anger Mounts Against Israel

The “most moral army in the world” from “the only democracy in the Middle East” has attacked hospitals, a home for the disabled, a geriatric hospice, demolished five mosques, razed entire neighbourhoods, erased entire families – the youngest – so far – just three days old if you do not count the unborn, as in the case of twenty nine year old Samar Al Hallaq killed with her two sons, aged four and five, other members of her family and carrying her third child. Her husband was critically injured.

30 Fascinating Photos Of 1960s Afghanistan

The peaceful hues of 1960s Afghanistan paint a far different picture of the country embroiled with corruption and struggle. In 1967, Arizona State University professor Dr. Bill Podlich and his family swapped the stark, sultry summers of Tempe, Arizona for the environs of Kabul, Afghanistan. After serving in World War II, Podlich wanted to partake in a cause for peace and for that reason, he teamed up with UNESCO to work for two years at the Higher Teachers College of Kabul, Afghanistan. With him were his children, Jan and Peg, along with his wife Margaret.

The BRICS Bank Signals the End of the American Financial Empire and U.S. Dollar

What many of us here on the Daily Paul have been discussing for awhile goes mainstream.

Most scoff at a competitor to the US dollar- that is based less on analysis than an inbred mentality regarding the strength of the dollar.

The Last Word on Rand

OK I will vote for him in the primaries and even the general if he makes it that far.
However I do not have that 08 - 12 spirit that I had with his father.
Dr Ron Paul to me is more then a man or a movement.
He is the idea of the true republic.
He is 1775
He is that time before the flint struck the powder at Lexington green
He is that street protest
He is the RevolUTION and we will not see another like him in this lifetime.

You Rand people need to understand that about us Ron People
He is not his father ...

I will give Rand my support but I can't forget 2008 and 2012

76 Year Old Veteran Arrested For Asking Public Official To Speak Louder


http://youtu.be/-3I0txjLL8Y

Story at CNN:

Eddie Overholt, a 76 year old veteran was arrested in Greeneville, TN Friday, July 18, 2014 for asking Mayor Alan Broyles and board members to speak louder during an Industrial Development Board meeting at Greeneville Light and Power.

The Mayor and board were speaking in extremely low voices during the discussion of an unpopular decision to submit a second application to TDOT (the first was denied) that would allow a private company, US Nitrogen, to install and run wastewater pipes to the Nolichucky River so they would be able to get free water and a free place to dump wastewater instead of signing an agreement with the local water utility which would help the community.

A Portuguese Domino Falls

Last week we wrote about trouble brewing in the Portuguese banking sector.

The media advised to "stay calm" and the bank itself reassured its customers that the problem was with the holding company, NOT the bank itself

Then today we get this news: Espirito Santo Financial Group is Seeking Creditor Protection

Lesson: Trust your instincts. When they tell you everything is fine and it doesn't seem right to you, don't go back to your seat.

Bill Maher on police brutality

He gets it right.


http://youtu.be/Bs9LNAI0nBc

Bill Maher used his closing monologue on the July 18 episode of "Real Time With Bill Maher" to take a jab at militarized police culture in America. He listed different small towns that use military-style tanks and "toys" in their police departments. "Once you start dressing and equipping people like an occupying army, they start acting like one," he said. "Every day there's another story in the paper about cops beating innocent people." He noted that police culture isn't just borrowing equipment and machinery from the army, but also a "philosophy of overwhelming force," citing the rise in SWAT team invasions and police brutality.
