Greetings from Project Censored and the Media Freedom Foundation!

Please help Project Censored faculty and students complete the Censored 2016 yearbook on time!

We need to raise $15,000 during our 12 day Spring fund drive starting April 23 and ending May 4 to have enough funds to be sure the 2016 yearbook will be out by October.

We’ve grown in terms of outreach at Project Censored, especially over the past five years. In addition to our annual book published by Seven Stories Press, there is now the incredible Project Censored documentary being used in classrooms across the country. We are four and half years into our weekly public affairs program at KPFA Pacifica Free Speech Radio in Berkeley, CA, which now airs on 25 stations across the US.

We need your support to keep this important work going! Please give what you can. All donations are tax-deductible! Those donating $50 or more will receive a signed 2016 yearbook in October when the book is released. Those donating $250 or more will be listed in the acknowledgement pages of Censored 2016 yearbook as a contributing supporter.

We are pleased to announce that we have a generous $2000 challenge match to support this drive from a donor in Washington state. So every dollar we raise means an additional dollar from the match.

The Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP). Promoting Global Tyranny Run By Corporations. Here’s How to Stop Them

YELL AT CONGRESS:

(Send a different letter each day.)

This unconstitutional menace is arguably the greatest betrayal in history, but of course there is also the Bush regime’s 9/11, so we essentially live in an age of monumental Machiavellian abominations.

The “Trans Pacific Partnership” would end the USA as a sovereign state. The laws passed by Congress and state governments would be challenged into non-existence by supreme corporations. These multinationals will claim that all regulations that hurt their desired profits are against the rules: labor laws, environmental protections, consumer protections, ANY protections of the citizenry will be abolished over time. It’s the same trend that’s been occurring, but on steroids.

The Constitution says that only our Congress can make laws here, not foreign corporations. This is absurd on its face and arguably treasonous.

Barack Obama is now an enemy of the US, and he–and anyone supporting this TPP sham–should be impeached immediately.

Parts of the TPP won’t be declassified for four years … even if it’s passed:

The TPP Investment Chapter … is classified and supposed to be kept secret for four years after the entry into force of the TPP agreement or, if no agreement is reached, for four years from the close of the negotiations.

Ron Kirk, until recently Mr. Obama’s top trade official, was remarkably candid about why he opposed making the text public: doing so, he suggested to Reuters, would raise such opposition that it could make the deal impossible to sign.

Senator Elizabeth Warren notes:

Supporters of the deal say to me, “They have to be secret, because if the American people knew what was actually in them, they would be opposed.”

…However, under agreements like the TPP, these provisions apply to and override the laws of modern, stable, developed countries with democratic governance and fair court systems. The corporate representatives negotiating modern trade agreements see such democratically run governments as “burdensome” and chaotic, introducing “uncertainties” and “interfering” or “meddling” with the corporate order. As one supporter of these ISDS provisions put it, they protect corporations from “the waves of madness that occasionally flit through the population.”

Russia hosted an international conference to bring together the nations that oppose US and NATO warmongering. Nations included Russia, China, Iran, India, Kazakhstan, Greece and others.

Did a Chinese-Russian-Iranian coalition opposing NATO debut in Moscow?

All of them addressed Washington’s multispectral warfare that has utilized color revolutions, like EuroMaidan in Ukraine and the Rose Revolution in Georgia, for regime change. Shoigu cited Venezuela and China’s Hong Kong Special Administrative Region as failed color revolutions.

Foreign Minister Lavrov reminded the attendees that the possibilities of a dangerous world conflict were increasing due to the lack of concern by the US and NATO for the security of others and a lack of constructive dialogue…

…it is only possible to meet common challenges and preserve the peace through collective, joint efforts based on respect for the legitimate interests of all partners,

…During a meeting with Chinese Defense Minister Chang Wanquan, [Russian Defense Minister] Shoigu emphasized that Moscow’s military ties with Beijing are its overriding priority.” In another bilateral meeting the defense honchos of Iran and Russia confirmed that their cooperation will be part of the cornerstones of a new multipolar order and that Moscow and Tehran were in harmony in their strategic approach to the US.

A direct challenge to the “New World Order”:

S-300S-300 Missile Launchers

[Chinese] Minister Wanquan flatly told the MCIS that a fair world order was needed.

The new arms race is touched upon also.

Gaza-Stike

British medical journal The Lancet is under attack for daring to speak out on the massacre of over 1,800 Palestinians last year and the related health crises in Gaza.

Lancet medical journal accused of ‘hate speech’ on Israeli aggression in Gaza

Specifically referencing Israel’s military assault on Gaza last summer, the letter insisted “the massacre in Gaza spares no one.” Its victims include “the disabled and sick in hospitals, children playing on the beach or on the roof top, with a large majority of non-combatants,” the letter said.

CNN:

The Palestinian death toll in Gaza stands at more than 1,800, with nearly 10,000 wounded, Gaza’s Health Ministry said Sunday. More than 300 children have died, the ministry has reported, as the United Nations repeatedly raises concerns about the high number of deaths in Gaza.

Legal threats are the mechanism used now to control students and teachers in the nation’s schools. The government has made talking about these mandatory tests a crime, as well as a host of other offenses…

Lifting the Veil of Silence on Standardized Testing

There is a veil of secrecy over these tests and the way they are administered. And it’s no accident. The testing companies don’t want all of this to become public knowledge. They don’t want the quality or inferiority of the actual exams to be known.

And our state and federal governments are protecting them. From whom? Our teachers, parents, and students.

An agreement that would free companies engaged in international trade from rules imposed by national governments to protect labor, environmental and other interests has cleared a key committee in the U.S. Congress.

Betrayer in Chief makes this crap his big policy legacy. Fucking piece of shit. I never voted for his sorry ass, and I am sickened by the fascistic turn this country has taken.

You can’t make this shit up.

Court OKs Barring High IQs for Cops

Jordan, a 49-year-old college graduate, took the exam in 1996 and scored 33 points, the equivalent of an IQ of 125. But New London police interviewed only candidates who scored 20 to 27, on the theory that those who scored too high could get bored with police work and leave soon after undergoing costly training.
