One in four Germans say they back a policy to shoot unwanted illegal refugees at their borders

The Alternative for Germany (AFD) party leader Frauke Petry caused a storm a week ago when she advocated the right of border police to gun down migrants. But her comments have struck a nerve in a country being pushed to the brink by the crisis with 29 per cent of respondents in a weekend poll backing her extremist plan.

This, say observers, is proof of the greatest fear among liberal politicians – citizens pushed into the embrace of the far-right and its intolerant attitudes which brought Hitler to power in the 1930s.

Saudi military intervention in Syria amounts to war: Russian deputy

“Syria has to give official consent, to invite, otherwise it will be a war. The same applies to international law,” Pavel Krasheninnikov, the head of the State Duma committee, told Interfax on Friday.

Krasheninnikov said that by promising a ground operation in Syria Riyadh now “intends to send troops to the territory of a sovereign state essentially without declaring a war.”

Saudi Arabia on Thursday voiced readiness to participate in any ground operations in Syria if the US-led coalition allegedly targeting terrorists decides to start such operations.

US State Department spokesman John Kirby also welcomed the Saudi decision.

Saudi Arabia is a member of the so-called US-led coalition that has been conducting air raids against what are claimed to be the Daesh terrorists inside Syria without any authorization from the Syrian government or a UN mandate since September 2014.

 

 

Cameron is sowing the seeds of fascism

Cameron emerged seemingly triumphant from this week’s meeting with European Council President Donald Tusk. As expected, three of his four criteria for supporting Britain’s continued membership in the EU – that is, the three largely meaningless ones – were more or less agreed. But Cameron also claimed victory over the one that was expected to be the sticking point: a four-year ban on in-work benefits for new EU migrants. Under existing treaties, EU nationals working in the UK are entitled to be treated the same as British citizens. However, Tusk has now agreed that Britain should be allowed to apply an “emergency brake,” which would block benefits to EU workers in Britain in certain ‘emergency’ circumstances. As yet, exactly what circumstances would qualify as ‘emergencies’ remains undefined, but according to Reuters, what Cameron and Tusk have in mind is the country’s “welfare system [being] under excessive strain”.

 

 

North Korea: We Will Launch More Rockets

‘65,000% radioactivity spike’: New York Gov. orders probe into water leak at Indian Point

In an “unacceptable” groundwater leak at the Indian Point nuclear power plant, three monitoring wells were discovered to contain “alarming levels of radioactivity,” the Governor of New York said, ordering an immediate environmental probe into the issue.

Health and environment commissioners were ordered by Governor Andrew Cuomo to begin an investigation into the leak of “radioactive tritium-contaminated water” at the Indian Point nuclear power plant after the operator, Entergy Nuclear Operations, raised the alarm.

The nation’s infrastructure is falling apart. Every home has hot and cold, toxic radioactivity coming out the faucets!

 

 

Russian Rules of Engagement in Syria

Wont be any DC sponsored terrorists to torture Donald! Go Russia!

Russia’s intervention last year changed the dynamic on the ground. It holds key trump cards, waging real war on terrorism effectively.

It determined rules of engagement – turning the tide in a protracted conflict government forces were losing, now with the upper hand.

Fort Russ quoted an unnamed senior joint operation Syria, Russia, Iran, Hezbollah command official, saying:

“Russia has established new rules of engagement on the Syrian-Turkish border, and has retained the upper hand for the Syrian air force and the Syrian army.”

“Russia also refurbished and upgraded custom made Syrian MiG29SMT (warplanes), to protect the Russian air force squadrons, with clear orders to shoot down Turkish planes that enter the Syrian air space.”

Mahdi Hashi, a young man of Somali origin who grew up in London, had never been to the United States before he was imprisoned in the 10-South wing of the Metropolitan Correctional Center in lower Manhattan in November 2012, when he was 23. For over three years, he has been confined to a small cell 23 hours a day without natural light, with an hour alone in a slightly larger indoor cage. He has had no physical contact with anyone. Apart from occasional visits by his lawyer, his human interaction has been limited to brief, transactional exchanges with guards and a monthly 30-minute phone call with his family.

US Must Act More Aggressively Against Daesh in Libya – Jeb Bush

The United States must act in a more aggressive manner in the fight against the Islamic State, Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush said.

Okay, Jeb, if you really feel that way about it… Here’s your rifle. Here’s your parachute. We ran out of the desert camo but here’s a bright da-glo orange jumpsuit from the CIA’s torture centers. Watch your head climbing into that transport aircraft, and we will call whoever it is you want to invade and tell them you are on your way to kick their butts all by yourself.

But we remember the lies about stolen incubators that tricked us into the first invasion of Iraq.

We remember your older brother’s whopper about Saddam’s nuclear weapons that tricked us into the second invasion of Iraq.

We remember how only a year ago Obama and Kerry tried to trick us into war with Syria with more lies about poison gas.

We remember how there weren’t really torpedoes in the Gulf of Tonkin or a Spanish mine in Havana Harbor, but how there really WERE weapons on board the Lusitania.

In short, we remember all the lies, frauds, and deceptions used to trick us into wars of conquest, to send our young people out to die in wars created out of thin air by and for the money-junkies. I think it is time that we have a new rule in America; that those who want war are the first to the front lines. You are all splendidly brave with the lives of other peoples’ children. Let’s see the true measure of your courage and commitment to war.

You first!

 

 

NEWS AND ACTIONS THIS COMING WEEK IN HYPOCRISY LAND

The Israeli Knesset rejected a bill that calls for equality (after all all this must remain a state by and for Jews). And a video emerged of Israeli prime minister Netanyahu praising Israeli Fascist Group Im Tirtzu which believes in “Jewishness” of Palestine and acts and
supports to effect ethnic cleansing of native Palestinians in favor of European and other Jewish colonization. The Zionist leaders attacked Ban Ki Moon for mildly speaking about the need to end the occupation and let Palestinians live free. The heads of the EU misssions in
Jerusalem issued a report saying that Israel must respect human rights. They explained that 660 Palestinians are being held without charge or trial. They also mention Mohammad AlQeeq, a Palestinian Journalist on hunger strike for 70 days since his illegal detention.

Violent clashes break out across the globe as thousands take to the streets in anti-Islam protests organised by far-right group PEGIDA

Violent scuffles broke out across Europe today as thousands of people taking part in far-right anti-Islam protests clashed with pro-immigration groups and riot control police.

Police in Dresden, Germany, saw about 2,000 protesters at a rally organised by the group Patriotic Europeans against the Islamisation of the West, making it the biggest of a coordinated series of demonstrations across European cities.

Known by its German acronym PEGIDA, the group emerged in Dresden two years ago and has become a magnet for far-right and anti-immigrant sentiment.

It has never been associated with microcephaly. There has been a minor increase in microcephaly cases reported in Brazil but also a massive over-reporting of potential cases. And there has been no demonstration of a link between Zika and microcephaly.

 

 

Monsanto Exposed as Source for White Phosphorus Used in Gaza Massacre

By Justin Gardner

Monsanto has earned the dubious reputation of being one of the most hated companies in the world. Its grand proclamations of working to feed the world and help the environment have been exposed for a sham…

The chemical manufacturing side of Monsanto goes back a long way, most notably to Vietnam where Agent Orange was used to decimate vast swaths of tropical rainforest and poison countless Vietnamese civilians and soldiers, including American. The popular 2-4, D herbicide used today was an ingredient in Agent Orange.

But Monsanto’s role as a purveyor of deadly military chemicals goes even deeper…

Russia considers any plane not operating within the US-Russia coordination agreement to be a threat and will be shot down,…….

Politicians have passed laws that say “a person who possesses the instruments and skills to save lives may not, under threat of legal action, use their training and tools in these protected-zones”.

Corporations Killed Medicine. Here’s How to Take It Back

Along the path toward the creation of a global capitalist system, some of the most significant steps were taken by the English enclosure movement.

Between the 15th to 19th centuries, the rich and the powerful fenced off commonly held land and transformed it into private property. Land switched from a source of subsistence to a source of profit, and small farmers were relegated to wage laborers. In Das Kapital, Marx described the process by coining the term land-grabbing. To British historian E.P. Thompson, it was “a plain enough case of class robbery.”

Not true says Steve Pomerantz, who spent 28 years at the FBI, and rose from field investigative special agent to the rank of assistant director, the third highest position in the Bureau.

“They (the FBI) do not do security reviews,” Pomerantz said. “What they primarily do and what they are clearly doing in this instance is a criminal investigation.”

Another Cop Treats Sexting Teens Like Child Pornographers

A Three Rivers, Michigan, teenager is both the victim and perpetrator of a sex crime. He might land on the sex offender registry, and face criminal charges, all because he took an inappropriate photo—of himself. The boy is unnamed in local news reporters, which note that he is under 15 years of age. He allegedly took a nude photo of himself on a girl’s cell phone. That girl sent the picture to another girl, who sent it to another. Preliminary charges are pending for all three—the boy was charged with manufacturing child porn, and the girls with distributing it. A prosecutor is still weighing whether to pursue the charges.

Syria: NATO’s Last Desperate Options in Lost Proxy War

As early as 2012, a Department of Intelligence Agency (DIA) document (.pdf) admitted in regards to the Syrian conflict and the rise of ISIS that:

If the situation unravels there is the possibility of establishing a declared or undeclared Salafist principality in eastern Syria (Hasaka and Der Zor), and this is exactly what the supporting powers to the opposition want, in order to isolate the Syrian regime, which is considered the strategic depth of the Shia expansion (Iraq and Iran).

Money from thin air: British breezes sells for £80 a pop in China

A UK businessman is making a fortune selling British air to wealthy Chinese buyers for £80 ($115) a bottle.

Leo De Watts, 27, harvests fresh air from rural locations across the UK, including Dorset, Somerset, Wales, Wiltshire and Yorkshire.

His team use specially adapted fishing nets and run through fields to collect the breeze. The nets are left for 10 minutes to absorb the local aroma, before being bottled in 580ml containers.

Some people have waaaaay too much money and no common sense.

 

 

Sydney’s fun police have put out the light of the nightlife. The city’s a global laughing stock

In 1999, Sydney was at its peak – the Olympic Games were imminent and there was unbridled optimism that Sydney was about to emerge as an international city as the millennium approached. Internationally, Sydney was renowned as an incredibly fun place to live; the entertainment was world class, with great restaurants and venues to visit at any time of night.

Something pernicious has happened in the 15 years since, and Sydney has not just regressed into a ghost town, but there is an undercurrent of something much more sinister in the way the city is being run.

As I write this in 2016, not a day goes by without the press reporting of yet another bar, club, hotel, restaurant or venue closing.

Claire and I were in Sydney in 1999. It was a wild place. Sorry to hear it has been toned down.

A Badly Wounded Deutsche Bank Lashes Out At Central Bankers: Stop Easing, You Are Crushing Us

“We have reached that fork in the road within the monetary twilight zone, where Europe’s largest bank is openly defying central bank policy and demanding an end to easy money. Alas, since tighter monetary policy assures just as much if not more pain, one can’t help but wonder just how the central banks get themselves out of this particular trap they set up for themselves.”

 

 

Chicago Stock Exchange Says It’s Being Sold to Chinese-Led Group

The Chicago Stock Exchange said a Chinese investor group agreed to acquire it, giving the buyer entry into the intensely competitive U.S. equity market. Chongqing Casin Enterprise Group has signed a definitive agreement to acquire the company, according to a statement Friday. The deal values the Chicago Stock Exchange at less than $100 million, according to a person familiar with the matter, who asked to not be identified because the terms weren’t disclosed publicly. The exchange expects the deal to close in the second half of the year, though that will require regulatory approval.

Among dozens of us in alternative media, I’ve documented retired US Admiral John Kirby, former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense and current US State Department Spokesperson, as blatantly lying in accusation of Russia committing War Crimes.

Following the attempted attack, President Obama threw the intelligence community under the bus for its failure to “connect the dots.” He said, “this was not a failure to collect intelligence, it was a failure to integrate and understand the intelligence that we already had.”

Most Americans were unaware of the enormous damage to morale at the Department of Homeland Security, where I worked, his condemnation caused. His words infuriated many of us because we knew his administration had been engaged in a bureaucratic effort to destroy the raw material—the actual intelligence we had collected for years, and erase those dots.

The Half Dozen Biggest Reasons Why the Iowa Caucus Turned into a Voter Fraud Circus

The second even more blatant evidence that the Iowa state caucus and entire Democratic Party presidential election process has been rigged is that mega-giant corporation Microsoft founder Bill Gates is now in charge of counting both the Democratic and Republican votes in this year’s state primary elections.

Tech savvy Betanews journalist Brian Fagioli recently had this to say about Microsoft counting votes:

Closed source technologies from companies like Microsoft could, in theory, contain backdoors or vulnerabilities that hackers and evildoers could exploit. Even worse, Microsoft or its employees could purposely alter voting software to influence outcomes.

The Islamist rebels of Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group), the Free Syrian Army (FSA), Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, and Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki have begun to use child soldiers in their fight against the Syrian government forces inside the Aleppo Governorate after the latter launched a large-scale offensive to capture much of the province’s northern countryside.

According to local sources, soldiers from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) have reported a number of firefights in which children were being deployed by the Islamist rebels to help drive back the government forces.

Some of the children were described as “pre-teen” and unable to properly fire the automatic rifles they were being sent to battle with.

 

 

China’s ‘man-made sun’ sees ground-breaking progress

A team of Chinese scientists in Hefei, capital city of east Anhui province, has made an unprecedented breakthrough on an energy generation device that will bring it one step closer to transforming energy into stable, sustainable and controllable resources.

This is the longest plasma discharge time recorded in all the Tokamak fusion devices in the world.

Mainstream Media has Lost Control: Let the Whining Begin

Actually, the “begin” part of the title might be a bit of an exaggeration as we have heard whining on this front for some time. Allow me to offer a recent – and rather blatant – example:

That’s the headline at Spiegel. Perhaps it doesn’t come across the same way in German, but it sure sounds over-the-top in English. There is what you hear from the (established) press, and there is what you hear elsewhere. What you hear from the press is true; what you hear elsewhere is lies.

Spiegel recognizes that credibility is lost; restoring that credibility is, somehow, your responsibility (emphasis added):

Understanding False Flag Operations In Our Time

I would say that all of that confusion, all of that hopelessness is by design. I believe this now. I don’t believe, as I might have years past, that the people on top, they’re trying to do their best but it’s a tough world out there. No. No. No. They want you to feel helpless. They want you to be confused. Let’s talk about why.

One reason why is that the whole planet is being stolen. You’ve got this many people who want to own every single thing that’s worth owning in this planet – all the water, all the genetically modified foods they want to shove down your throat, all the minerals in the ground. They want every single thing. And they’re getting it. They’ve got it, actually, and they just want more. That’s the way it’s happening.

It’s a transnational corporate financial theft of everything. It’s a war. When there’s a war, the people who are running that war really don’t want you to be able to react to it. They don’t want you to be cognizant of what is happening. And they want you to be quiet about it. They want you to obey and be compliant.

False wars, false ‘money,’ false media… False Flag Super Bowl?

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

Your question: If US 1% oligarchs concluded they could get away with it, would they stage a False Flag Operation (and here, here) at the 2016 Super Bowl to further their political agenda? Perhaps it would look like this 2-minute clip from the 2002 movie, The Sum of All Fears; with plot of a non-complicit US President and non-false flag terrorism:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H-h_xgdM8FI

Considerations for your answer: History is the best tool to predict future events of specific groups’ plans. This is similar to what both Super Bowl teams do in game strategy: analysis of opponents’ history with reasonable conclusions what they’ve successfully done before, they will likely do again.

But is there a US 1% oligarchy that would orchestrate a False Flag Super Bowl attack? Isn’t that beyond reason???

 

 

Facebook’s War On Freedom Of Speech

It was only a few weeks ago that Facebook was forced to back down when caught permitting anti-Israel postings, but censoring equivalent anti-Palestinian postings. Now one of the most sinister stories of the past year was hardly even reported. In September, German Chancellor Angela Merkel met Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook at a UN development summit in New York. As they sat down, Chancellor Merkel’s microphone, still on, recorded Merkel asking Zuckerberg what could be done to stop anti-immigration postings being written on Facebook. She asked if it was something he was working on, and he assured her it was.

Iowa Democratic party altered precinct’s caucus results during chaotic night

In the Iowa Democratic party’s chaotic attempt to report caucus results on Monday night, the results in at least one precinct were unilaterally changed by the party as it attempted to deal with the culmination of a rushed and imperfect process overseeing the first-in-the-nation nominating contest.

In Grinnell Ward 1, the precinct where elite liberal arts college Grinnell College is located, 19 delegates were awarded to Bernie Sanders and seven were awarded to Hillary Clinton on caucus night. However, the Iowa Democratic party decided to shift one delegate from Sanders to Clinton on the night and did not notify precinct secretary J Pablo Silva that they had done so. Silva only discovered that this happened the next day, when checking the precinct results in other parts of the county.

There’s no doubt that Hillary is the candidate of Wall Street. Even more dangerous, though, is that she is the candidate of the military-industrial complex.

It is not simply his wife’s connection to Goldman Sachs and investment banking or his unreported loan from the multinational investment banking firm, however, that betrays this image. A closer look at Cruz reveals he is a neocon insider, not a renegade outsider.

Serious flaw discovered in Avast’s security-focused SafeZone browser

Several antivirus vendors have taken the open-source Chromium browser and created derivatives that they claim are more privacy-friendly and secure. Yet, at least two of them were recently found to have serious flaws that don’t exist in Chromium.

The latest example is the Avast SafeZone browser, internally known as Avastium, which is installed with the paid versions of Avast’s antivirus and security suites. Google Project Zero researcher Tavis Ormandy found a vulnerability that could allow an attacker to take control of Avastium when opening an attacker-controlled URL in any other locally installed browser.

By exploiting the flaw, an attacker could remotely read “files, cookies, passwords, everything,” Ormandy said in a report that he sent to Avast in December and which he made public Wednesday. “He can even take control of authenticated sessions and read email, interact with online banking, etc.”

Moscow sees no sense in modernising arms control deal due to NATO military activity

“We consider as senseless additional responsibilities in the arms control – on the background of the anti-Russian direction of the NATO training, curbing of the military contacts between NATO and Russia – modernisation of the Vienna document is senseless,” The deputy defense minister said in 2015 Russia received all inspection groups under the Vienna document. “If the dialogue on the arms control in Europe resumes, the control mechanism should be different from the one used under CFE (Treaty on Conventional Armed Forces in Europe). Nowadays, conventional arms may be compared in potential with nuclear arms, the list of “strategic” system is expanding – there is no limiting to calculating cannons and tanks”. The official noted that NATO’s representatives have been inviting the Russian Defense Ministry to “talk on the phone” with the purpose to accuse Russia of the crisis between Moscow and Brussels.

“The situation is tense, the number of attacks has increased tenfold. Ukraine is trying to put the blame on us, but not representatives of the OSCE have not remained indifferent, they said that Kiev has violated a truce. Gorlovka, Jasinovata, Peski and airport area are under fire. Kiev wants to open return fire on them, or to violate the Minsk Agreement.

Judging by what is happening, Kiev prepares to full escalation. We are waiting. We are ready. Let them make a choice. “

“In the sphere of ensuring rights, freedoms and legitimate interests of Russian citizens, Turkey is one of the most unfavorable countries in the world,” Dolgov said. “We annually register at least 1,000 addresses and complaints of Russian citizens to consular offices of the Russian Federation in Turkey. This happens because of fraud and manipulation of different Turkish companies and organizations (insurance, real estate, banking, etc.). ungrounded and biased actions of state agencies and structures, including policemen (illegal arrests of Russian citizens, their detention in unacceptable conditions, and so on), courts (especially in cases of lawsuits dealing with custody rights for children born in Russian-Turkish families) and so on. The Turkish side “systematically ignores its commitments to timely inform Russia’s consular offices about detention and other types of freedom deprivation of Russian citizens, despite their respective demands,” the commissioner noted.

Switzerland, blood gold capital of the world

Over the millennia the mining of gold has driven some of the world’s most brutal practices, as armed militias enslave entire populations, forcing them to mine with their bare hands or use rudimental tools at the blade of a machete or point of a gun. There is nothing new about ‘blood gold’, it’s just that you had no idea that you were likely supporting it when you bought that special piece of jewelry for your partner or relative. From cheap high street retail chains to the fashion houses of Paris and New York, blood gold adorns us all.

 

 

Athens in flames: Protesters hurl Molotov cocktails at police as tens of thousands take to the streets during general strike over Greek pension reforms

Protesters clashed with riot police in Athens today as protests against pension reforms during a general strike turned into violent chaos.

Some 40,000 people had joined anti-government protests in the Greek capital, and although initially peaceful, sporadic clashes between anarchist protesters and police outside Parliament and in other parts of the city centre soon escalated.

Police used tear gas and stun grenades against the dozens of hooded anarchists, while street vendors, tourists, and onlookers ran to safety as the violence broke out.

Russia’s Lukoil sells 230 gas stations in Lithuania, Latvia and Poland

The deal will be closed in the second half of 2016 after getting approval from regulatory authorities of Lithuania, Latvia, and Poland. In April 2015 Lukoil already sold its 100% participation interest in its Ukrainian subsidiary having 240 gas stations and 6 oil depots to AMIC. “The decision to sell the retail chain in Lithuania, Latvia and Poland was made within the framework of the program on optimization of Lukoil’s retail assets structure in Europe,” the company said. It was reported earlier Lukoil listed its assets in Lithuania and Latvia for sale. The decision was made because of higher anti-Russian sentiments in these countries, President of the Russian oil major Vagit Alekperov said earlier. Lukoil’s strategy does not address expansion in Europe in the coming years, Alekperov said.

Russian official: Turkish warplanes’ presence over Syrian skies to increase tension

Frants Klintsevich, first deputy chairman of the Federation Council Committee for Defense and Security, commented on a US statement that the Turkish Air Force would comply with the provisions of the Russian-American memorandum on flight security if it joined the struggle against terrorists on the territory of Syria. “Despite all the US assurances, provocations from Ankara are not ruled out completely if Turkish aviation is involved in Syria. In any case, tension over the Syrian skies will increase,” the senator said. “there is no special military need for the presence of Turkish aviation in Syria.” Russian Deputy Defense Minister Anatoly Antonov told journalists earlier on Friday that Turkish warplanes should fully comply with the provisions of the Russian-US memorandum on flight security, if they were involved in the Syria operation.

 

 

Flint Officials Could Have Prevented Lead Crisis for $80 a Day, Broke Federal Law Instead

“It’s outrageous that this sort of government-made catastrophe would happen anywhere in the United States,” Representative Justin Amash said Wednesday as he opened his allotted time period to question a panel before Congress about the lead crisis in Flint, Michigan. “The State of Michigan needs to provide comprehensive assistance to the people of Flint; and the state has the resources, I can assure you that as a former state legislator.”

In his characteristic calm and collected manner, Amash quickly pulled the painful truth from just two members of the decidedly small four-member panel — the lead contamination of the Flint water supply wouldn’t have happened if the city had followed the law…

 

 

Russia says Turkey systematically violates Open Skies Treaty

Earlier this week, Turkey violated the Open Skies Treaty by refusing to allow Russian inspectors to carry out an observation flight scheduled for February 1-5. This is not the first case when Ankara violates its international commitments, Antonov said. “In December 2015, the Turkish side closed for the Russian observation aircraft a part of airspace along the Syrian border and the Diyarbakir airfield (housing NATO aviation) earlier provided for use for the treaty’s aims. In October 2015, Turkey advised “in a mandatory manner” to delay the Russian observation mission due to carrying out a security operation. Russia agreed and postponed the flight. In 2014, a Turkish escort group said it was impossible to ensure the flights’ security in certain areas of the country’s airspace citing intense flights of combat aviation involved in the anti-terrorism operation. In February 2013, Ankara closed for observation the positions of the Patriot surface-to-air missile system in southern Turkey.

 

 

 

South Korea preparing tougher sanctions against Pyongyang — foreign ministry

“At the meeting attended by ambassadors of the United States, Japan, Australia and a representative of EU, the process of developing sanctions in UN Security Council was discussed, the issue of introducing unilateral restrictions against North Korea was also touched upon,” the foreign ministry said. The sides exchanged opinions on Pyongyang’s plans to launch a ballistic missile and discussed how they can persuade North Korea to refrain from such actions.

 

 

Ukrainian military ready to use force in Donbass — Russia’s OSCE envoy

According to him, Kiev is trying to shift the blame for the worsening situation in Donbass, which has been seen in recent days, to the militias. Lukashevich believes that the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission in Ukraine is not monitoring the situation in Ukrainian troops’ rear in Donbass. The mission should provide more information about the work of patrol teams, the diplomat told a session of the OSCE Permanent Council on Thursday. Also, Lukashevich has called on Kiev to agree the modality of Donbass elections and the region’s special status with the Contact Group for Ukraine settlement. The Ukrainian authorities are trying to dodge the implementation of the Minsk agreements. “They promise whatever one likes but they do not implement anything,” Lukashevich told a session of the OSCE Permanent Council on Thursday.

 

 

US rejected Russia’s proposal on Syria consultation center in Amman — defense ministry

“We proposed to Americans, in the first place, and other Western countries to create a joint consultation center to solve issues of cooperation. We suggested that the possible location will be Amman,” Antonov said, adding that the proposal was rejected. Russia’s defense minister suggested having a phone conversation with Pentagon’s chief Ashton Carter on January 19. “We were given to understand that such a conversation is inadvisable,” he added.

 

 

Is the FDA suppressing Chinese Medicine herbal cures for Zika?

When a real pandemic devastates humanity, one of the primary causes of mass death will be the refusal of health authorities to even consider the realm of natural medicine as a source of plant-based cures.

Instead of looking for answers to a pandemic from across the entire realm of existing medicine (herbal medicine, indigenous medicine, naturopathic medicine, etc.), today’s corrupt institution of for-profit medicine is only interested in patented pharmaceuticals or vaccines, even when such interventions might take years to produce.

“We raised the price from $1,700 per bottle to $75,000. Should be a very handsome investment for all of us.” — Actual email from Big Pharma CEO Martin Shkreli, relishing the profits to be made from jilting medication consumers.

 

 

Some countries ask not to make public military contacts with Russia — defense ministry

A number of countries ask not to make public military contacts with Russia because of “harsh commands” from Brussels, Russian Deputy Defense Minister Anatoly Antonov has told reporters… “A meeting of the Russian and French defense ministers was held, and later a meeting between the two countries’ General Staff chiefs took place as well. Army General Valery Gerasimov spoke with his US counterpart twice. We received high-ranking delegations from the UK, Germany and Switzerland,” Antonov said. “Representatives of other countries came here too, but because of the tough commands from Brussels they ask not to advertise the contacts at the moment,” he added.

Obedience training: The truth about the pledge of allegience

Four reasons the January jobs report is fishy

The U.S. jobs report for January appears to show a big slowdown in hiring at first glance. But changes in monthly employment can be quite fickle and a few things looked fishy.

Here are four reasons you should view the January employment report in a different light — and wait another month or two to see if the labor market is really in retreat.

Seriously? Now They Expect Us to Believe ISIS Leader Is Running Online Suicide Bombing Classes

So we are to believe the [Western intelligence asset] leader of ISIS is regularly participating in scheduled online classes with groups of people via Skype on how to blow one’s self up in a public area.

And yet… we are told no one can seem to catch him.

In a world where the NSA can literally hack entire countries and we’ve been told everything everyone can do online can be monitored 24/7 in real-time… we are told no one has any idea where this guy could possibly be.

How can anyone possibly believe this line of bs?

So what’s next for the enterprising young terrorists? Is ISIS going to open up a chain of terrorist community colleges and courses by mail, bombs included?

New Hampshire combats voter fraud, requiring ID for 1st time in primary

New Hampshire’s first-in-the-nation presidential primary makes history every four years, and on Feb. 9 it will do so for an additional reason.

This year, for the first time, primary voters will have to show ID.

“I think there are definitely going to be lines, with any indication of our absentee balloting already — it’s huge,” said Kerri Parker, the town clerk of Meredith, N.H., and president of the New Hampshire Town and City Clerks Association.

“People are concerned, they want to get out, they want their voice to be heard, which is great,” she said, but cautioned that “the only thing they need to remember is to bring their ID’s to the polls. … We have to see your ID because of voter fraud.”

END OF THE FED: IT CAN’T DO ANY OF THE THINGS IT’S SUPPOSED TO DO

Janet Yellen has been in the news with her often-stated determination to create price inflation.

Why Fed officials are so scared to death of the deflation we all look for at the shopping mall each weekend is anybody’s guess. Ours is that it keeps the crony banking system and its inflated bureaucracy afloat – on a sea of green, like in a yellow submarine.

But it doesn’t really matter. The Fed can’t do what Congress has decided it needs to do, anyway. That’s because the Fed is a state-empowered monopoly. And its dictates amount to price fixing, which never works.

by Mac Slavo – Radiation Alert: L.A. Gas Well Spewing LETHAL LEVELS Of Breathable Nuclear Material: “Fukushima Class Disaster”

In a breaking development that has been completely ignored by mainstream news sources, the leaking natural gas well near Los Angeles, California is now reportedly spewing lethal levels of radioactive material, according to a report from Steve Quayle and a group with expertise in nuclear material.

A leaking natural gas well outside Los Angeles is spewing so much naturally-occurring Uranium and Radon, that “breathable” radiation levels have hit “lethal levels” according to a Nuclear Expert group.

Hal Turner of Super Station 95 reports that the well is releasing 1.91 Curies (Ci) of radiation per hour.

This rogue well is spewing huge amounts of natural gas and about 1.91 curies an hour of natural radioactive material in the natural gas… 1.91 curies an hour is about 45.9 curies per day… It’s a really, really big leak.

A curie is a unit of measure in the U.S. to describe very large radioactive releases.

And yet, the utility company which owns this well appears to be completely impotent to prevent this catastrophe from happening.

The War On Savers And The 200 Rulers Of World Finance

What kind of crank economics contends that brutally punishing two of the great, historically-proven economic virtues——-thrift and prudence—-is the key to economic growth and true wealth creation?

In this age of relentless consumption and 140 character tweets, what kind of insult to common sense argues that human nature is prone to save too much, defer gratification too long, shop too sparingly and consume too little?

Forget all of their mathematical economics and DSGE model regressions. Our 200 unelected rulers are enthrall to a dogma of debt that is so primitive that it’s just plain dumb.

By purchasing existing debt with digital credit conjured from the “send” key on central bank computers, they make room for more and more of it. And they do so without the inconvenience of deferred consumption or an upward climb of interest rates owing to an imbalance of borrowings versus savings.

70% Of Jobs Added In January Were Minimum Wage Waiters And Retail Workers

For those curious where the big jump in earnings came from, the answer appears rather simple: the reason, according to the BLS’ breakdown of jobs added in January (per the Establishment survey), of the 151,000 jobs added in the past month, retail trade added 58,000 jobs in January, while employment in food services and drinking places, aka waiters and bartenders, rose by 47,000 in January.

In other words, 70% of the job gains in January went to minimum wage workers.

All Job Gains Since December 2007 Have Gone To Foreign-Born Workers

We first laid out what that is last September when we said that “the one chart that matters more than ever, has little to nothing to do with the Fed’s monetary policy, but everything to do with the November 2016 presidential elections in which the topic of immigration, both legal and illegal, is shaping up to be the most rancorous, contentious and divisive.”

We were talking about the chart showing the cumulative addition of foreign-born and native-born workers added to US payrolls according to the BLS since December 2007, i.e., since the start of the recession/Second Great Depression.

As usually happens, it is precisely this data that gets no mention following any job report. However, with Trump and his anti-immigration campaign continuing to plow on despite the Iowa disappointment, we are confident that the chart shown below will soon be recognizable to economic and political pundits everywhere.

Corporations love H1 visas (coupled with massive, illegal immigration), because they so lower the cost of doing business.

 

 

More Clinton emails to be labeled ‘top secret,’ lawmaker says

A Republican member of the House Intelligence Committee warned on Wednesday that the Obama administration will declare that additional emails from Hillary Clinton’s personal server during her time as secretary of State have been classified at the highest level.

“The press has reporting there’s been 22 emails. There’s actually more than that,” Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) said on Fox News’s “America’s Newsroom” on Wednesday.

“They do reveal classified methods. They do reveal classified sources and they do reveal human assets,” he added. “I can’t imagine how anyone could be familiar with these emails, whether they’re sending them or receiving them, and not realize that these are highly classified.”

How anger changes the BRAIN: Aggression causes new nerve cells to grow which can trigger even more rage in the future

From increased anxiety to high blood pressure, it’s well known that anger is bad for our health.

But a new study suggests becoming full of rage could change the structure of the brain itself, with the production of nerve cells in the hippocampus.

Activity in these new nerve cells was seen with the continuation of aggressive behaviour in an experiment involving male mice, which became increasingly angry.

This suggests that the act of getting angry makes us angrier and the cycle continues.

 

 

Citi: World economy trapped in ‘death spiral’

The global economy seems trapped in a “death spiral” that could lead to further weakness in oil prices, recession and a serious equity bear market, Citi strategists have warned.

Some analysts — including those at Citi — have turned bearish on the world economy this year, following an equity rout in January and weaker economic data out of China and the U.S.

“The world appears to be trapped in a circular reference death spiral,” Citi strategists led by Jonathan Stubbs said in a report on Thursday.

“Stronger U.S. dollar, weaker oil/commodity prices, weaker world trade/petrodollar liquidity, weaker EM (and global growth)… and repeat. Ad infinitum, this would lead to Oilmageddon, a ‘significant and synchronized’ global recession and a proper modern-day equity bear market.”

We at WRH told you this was coming; it was only a matter of when.

And please, if you have not already done so, start making some clear and definitive preparations to take care of yourself, and the people you care about.

Make sure you have long-term storable food, water purification, and extra medications for yourselves and your pets. If there is a major disruption in the supply chain (and The Baltic Dry Index has all but collapsed), you need to know that you and those you care about can be as self-reliant as possible.

If you have kids in school, should you need to get them back safely with you, understand clearly what the school policy is on releasing kids before the end of their school day. If you need to be mobile, make sure you have a bug-out kit in the car, and keep it stocked, and have a plan as to where you need to go.

Start building community with like-minded people in your neighborhoods, and see how you can be of mutual help. Find capabilities with which you can barter.

I really don’t want to be “Mrs. Chicken of Hawaii, 2016”, but folks; something wicked this way comes. Preparation will be the key to survival when the excrement hits the ventilator, big-time.

Russian menace pushes Sweden towards Nato

In the middle of the Baltic Sea, a chilly east wind blows across a former Cold War frontier.
After more than 20 years of strategic irrelevance, and thanks to increasingly unpredictable Russian behaviour, Gotland is back in the spotlight.
It is the latest chapter in the island’s long military history, and one returning soldier is thrilled.
“It’s almost a dream come true,” says Lt Col Stefan Pettersson.
After a decade in civilian life, Pettersson is back in uniform, preparing to take command of the Swedish island’s defences.
As he scans the snowy landscape where he and his colleagues used to train, he is still pinching himself.
“I always had a dream to come back as an officer and to do it here on Gotland and establish a new unit, it’s perfect,” he tells me.
The new Gotland battle group, expected to take shape by the end of next year, will number 300 full- and part-time soldiers.

“Russian menace”?!?!?

Forgive me, but have the folks at BBC collectively lost their minds, gone barking mad, and conveniently forgotten of what real journalism consists, in order to vomit up this codswallop?!?

And how the hell are they going to convince anyone of alleged “…increasingly unpredictable Russian behaviour…” without any provable allegations thereof?!?!?

These wild-ass allegations, which cannot be substantiated in fact, appear to be a further demonisation of Russia, and is the kind of smear tactic which is most generally a prelude to war.

And lastly, will someone please politely remind whoever wrote this more than insane headline, with allegations which they cannot prove in fact (because otherwise, why wouldn’t they?!?) that in the age of the internet, “the big lie” went out with the dribble glass and whoopee cushion?!?

Now, that would be a kindness!!

As Yemen Bleeds, British Profits from Weapons Sales “Bury Human Rights”

It is more than possible to speculate why Prime Minister David Cameron has declared it his mission to scrap the Human Rights Act – which is incorporated into the European Convention on Human Rights – it appears he simply does not believe in human rights.

For example, the fact that Saudi Arabia executed – including beheadings – forty seven people in one day last month, displaying their bodies from gibbets, failed to deter him from having British military experts to work with their Saudi counterparts, advising on which targets – and which people, it seems – to bomb in Yemen. Parliament has not been consulted, thus, without a chance to debate and vote, democracy too has been suspended.

It’s all about the money from the arms sales, and Cameron is utterly no less beholden to the military/industrial complex of the UK than is Obama to the military/industrial complex in the US.

And of course, to enter into deals with fanatical tyrants, who so readily kill and maim their own people, one also has to have one’s conscience surgically removed; I am sure that this has been the case with both Cameron and Obama.

US claims Russia is ‘in part’ to blame for Syrian talks’ halt, misquotes UN as proof

Kirby appears to have played loosely with the official statement here.

“He [de Mistura] did cite the difficulties that the military activities by Russia and the regime are having in terms of demonstrating a good faith effort by the regime to have negotiations and talks, but I’m not privy to every issue that they’ve raised – the opposition has raised with Mr. de Mistura,” Kirby told Lee.

This comment came soon after the UN mediator suspended the peace talks just two days in, citing differences between the Syrian government and opposition delegations on the priority of humanitarian issues.

When asked if the recent military escalation by the Syrian government troops and the Russian airstrikes “basically bombed your talks,” de Mistura replied: “I’m not referring to military activities.”

US sackings surge to 6-month high: Challenger

Layoffs surged in January to the highest levels since July as employers in the retail and energy sectors pulled out the pink slips, according to a private survey out Thursday.

U.S.-based companies announced 75,114 planned job cuts last month, up more than 200 percent from a 15-year low in December, according to global outplacement firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas. That figure was also 42 percent higher from a year ago.

Retailers were the biggest job cutter, despite a nearly 8 percent bump in U.S. holiday sales in 2015. The sector slashed 22,246 positions, a seven-year high.

Wal-Mart accounted for much of the payroll reductions. The nation’s largest retailer said it plans to close 269 stores and expects to let go 16,000 workers.

Macy’s said it will also shutter some locations this year, costing 4,820 employees their jobs.

But the official US Government unemployment report says unemployment is below 5%.

Monsanto Actually DID Buy the BLACKWATER Mercenary Group

A report by Jeremy Scahill in The Nation revealed that the largest mercenary army in the world, Blackwater (later called Xe Services and more recently “Academi”) clandestine intelligence services was sold to the multinational Monsanto. Blackwater was renamed in 2009 after becoming famous in the world with numerous reports of abuses in Iraq, including massacres of civilians. It remains the largest private contractor of the U.S. Department of State “security services,” that practices state terrorism by giving the government the opportunity to deny it.

Almost simultaneously with the publication of this article in The Nation, the Via Campesina reported the purchase of 500,000 shares of Monsanto, for more than $23 million by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which with this action completed the outing of the mask of “philanthropy.” Another association that is not surprising.

 

 

Israeli Military Censor Seeks to Expand Control to ‘Prominent’ Facebook Users

The Israeli military censor usually tries to stay out of the headlines. It’s not always easy, as several times high-profile Israel-related stories have broken in the US media first, and aren’t “allowed” in Israeli papers for days after.

Those incidents are a constant reminder that in Israel, nothing even vaguely national security-related gets published in an Israeli paper without the military censor’s say-so. Today, the military censor is trying to extend that control even further, presenting “orders” to high-profile bloggers and Facebook users, demanding they be placed under the same control.

At least 30 Israelis have received such orders. Many, like Yossi Gurvitz, are outspoken critics of the Israeli government’s policy. Gurvitz says he will be pursuing legal options to get around having to pre-submit all his criticisms to the military censor and get permission before publishing.

Deliberately confusing criticism of the Israeli government with criticism of the Jewish people is a handy tactic, used by the Israeli government ever since its inception.

This will mean the end of what little freedom of speech Israelis had previously known, and the beginning of even more draconian, Orwellian propaganda by the state, which the Israeli people will be ORDERED to believe, and never dare question.

 

 

As Americans Prep for Super Bowl Sunday, Their Future Is Being Sold to the Corporate Elite

This Thursday, in Auckland, New Zealand, representatives of the twelve nations participating in the Trans-Pacific Partnership gathered to sign the massive trade deal turned corporate coup, bringing an end to the obligatory 90-day period ostensibly set aside for debate, following the close of five years of negotiations in October…

The countries that don’t exist

There really is a secret world of hidden independent nations, with their own populations, governments – and football leagues. In fact, you’ve almost certainly visited one without realising.

US Estimates: Up to 6,000 ISIS Fighters in Libya

When the US made the decision to launch a war against ISIS in Iraq and Syria, they dramatically underestimated the size of the ISIS forces there, aiming to downplay the effort for the sake of selling the war as smaller than it really would be. In Libya, they seem to be going the other way.

Pentagon estimates for Libya have around 3,000 ISIS fighters there, but as officials agitate for an expansion of the war into Libya, US officials are now revising the ISIS presence upward, saying that they now has as many as 6,000 fighters there.

It must be asked, however, if the sudden upward revision, which is coming at the exact time the administration is trying to sell the expansion of the war into Libya, is meant to make the ISIS force there look a lot more imposing than it really is.

(from a song of the same name, and a “J’accuse!” to President Obama)

“You’re selling us war… but we’re just not buyin’
You’ve got your talking heads all cued, but we know they’re lyin’
Just how many more will you condemn to dyin’?!?
You can’t justify this war, so just stop tryin’)

(Ahem). Considering just how “brilliantly” our military misadventures in the Middle East and Afghanistan have gone over the last 16 years, one might think that the Pentagon would very seriously consider some other tactic than a reinvasion.

However, unfortunately, just because something is the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid thing the US government and military could do is no guarantee that they will not do it.

And also, unfortunately, doing the same thing precisely the same way, yet expecting a different outcome, is one of the classical definitions of insanity.

This is all about controlling Libya’s oil (because the oil prices cannot stay at these levels forever), and natural gas, and assuring that these commodities will only be sold in US petrodollars.

UKRAINE GOVERNMENT IN CHAOS AS DEALS WITH OLIGARCHS, NEO-FASCISTS FRAY

The deal was pretty simple: in exchange for aligning with the Western-backed, post-coup government in Kiev against Russia, the corrupt oligarch class of Ukraine could keep their economic power and the wealth they made looting the country. The arrangement had the value of helping to temporarily secure the government in Kiev from a second coup and providing a funding source for the far-right militias sent to fight Russian-backed separatists in the east. The oligarchs largely went along for fear of losing their positions, or even their lives, as the government in Kiev had come to power through violence and vocal opponents of the new regime began disappearing.

Peace Talks “Paused” After Putin’s Triumph in Aleppo 

A last ditch effort to stop a Russian-led military offensive in northern Syria ended in failure on Wednesday when the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) backed by the National Defense Forces (NDF) and heavy Russian air cover broke a 40-month siege on the villages of Nubl and al-Zahra in northwestern Aleppo province. The Obama administration had hoped that it could forestall the onslaught by cobbling together an eleventh-hour ceasefire agreement at the Geneva peace talks. But when the news that Syrian armored units had crashed through al Nusra’s defenses and forced the jihadists to retreat, UN envoy Staffan de Mistura suspended the negotiations tacitly acknowledging that the mission had failed.

 

The Swedish allegations of rape are obviously trumped up to get Assange into Swedish custody, from whence he can be secreted off to some secret prison in the USA to be tortured and probably locked up for life in solitary confinement on some trumped up charges.

 

All the while the lily livered, sycophantic and cowardly Australian government, which has a legal and moral obligation to protect the rights of Assange, will probably bend over backwards to do what Washington tells it to do regarding this matter. The Rule of Law, natural justice, due process, habeas corpus and international laws forbidding torture no longer apply in Australia, the USA, Britain, France, Germany….well, the whole western world……………………KT

UK, Sweden reject UN panel ruling in favor of Julian Assange

Britain says it rejects a UN panel ruling that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is the victim of arbitrary detention at the Ecuadorian embassy in London and insists he will still be extradited to Sweden if arrested in the UK.

“This changes nothing,” a British government spokesman responded to the UN decision, adding that London will formally contest the ruling.

The UK insists that Assange is voluntarily avoiding lawful arrest by staying at the Ecuadorian mission in the British capital and Whitehall is “deeply frustrated that this unacceptable situation is still being allowed to continue.”

Why the ‘Sultan of Chaos’ is freaking out

Picture sleepless nights at ‘Sultan’ Erdogan’s palace in Ankara. Imagine him livid when he learns the Syrian Arab Army (SAA), backed by Russian air power, started a preemptive Battle of Aleppo – through the Bayirbucak region – cutting off Ankara’s top weaponizing corridor and Jihadi highway.

Who controls this corridor will control the final outcome of the war in Syria.

Meanwhile, in Geneva, the remote-controlled Syrian opposition, a.k.a. High Negotiations Committee, graphically demonstrated they never wanted to meet with the Damascus delegation in the first place – “proximity” talks or otherwise, even after Washington and Moscow roughly agreed on a two-year transition plan leading to a theoretically secular, nonsectarian Syria.

The Saudi front wanted no less than Ahrar al-Sham, Jaysh al-Islam and all Jabhat al-Nusra, a.k.a. al-Qaeda in Syria, collaborators at the table in Geneva. So the Geneva charade, quicker than one can say “Road to Aleppo!” was exposed for what it is.

 

 

US military attacked for complicity in Afghan child soldiers after boy’s murder

The Taliban’s murder of a 10-year old Afghan boy this week has cast a spotlight on the practice by US allies of turning children into fighters in the war-torn country.

Afghans have hailed the heroism of Wasil Ahmad, whom the Taliban killed in Uruzgan province on Monday for fighting alongside his uncle with a US-backed government militia called the Afghan Local Police.

Wasil Ahmad: the 10-year-old ‘hero’ murdered by the Taliban

Wasil had won acclaim for helping ALP forces break an insurgent siege after his uncle, the unit’s commander, was wounded. He was declare a national hero by the Afghan government, and paraded, wearing an oversized uniform and wielding an AK-47.

Overshadowed in the outpouring of grief is the grim practice of allowing children to take up arms, particularly alongside a quasi-official force created by the US military.

U.S., Russia “Base Wars” In Syria As Turkey Allegedly Prepares For Invasion

The chess pieces are continuing to be set by the world’s two superpowers in Syria in steps that are slowly leading to the possibility of a direct military confrontation between them. That is, if the United States and NATO do not abandon their pipe dreams of world hegemony and the destruction of the secular government of Bashar al-Assad.

The latest chess pieces being moved around on the board come in the form of air bases now being set up and expanded by both the United States and Russia inside Syrian territory…

War Warning: Serious Grounds to Believe Turkey Planning Military Invasion of Syria

Russian Major General Igor Konashenkov has announced that Russia now has ‘serious grounds’ to believe Turkey is preparing an illegal ground invasion of Syria:

“We have serious grounds to suspect intensive preparations by Turkey for a military invasion on the territory of the sovereign state of Syria,”

“We are recording more and more signs of concealed preparations by the Turkish military,”

“We are surprised that the talkative representatives of the Pentagon, NATO and numerous organizations allegedly protecting human rights in Syria, despite our call to respond to these actions, still remain silent,”

“Such steps carried out by a country, which is a NATO member state, in no way contribute to the strengthening of trust and security in Europe.”

 

 

END OF ISIS? Russian Jets Hit 900 Targets in Last Three Days, Jihadists Fleeing

Russia’s intervention in Syria has produced many astounding results since it began late last year, and they seem to be continuing into the new year too.

“In order to retain at least some semblance of a fighting capacity, the militants’ forces in the Syria’s northern regions continue abandoning their positions and falling back to the Turkish border.”

Cameron’s ‘mass privatisation’ of NHS services has just been dealt a deadly blow

The ‘mass privatisation’ of health services in Staffordshire has been shelved, leaving David Cameron’s plans to sell-off the NHS in tatters.

Health bosses pulled the plug on two major contracts worth £1.2 billion after the running costs of a similar £800 million deal to privatise elderly care in Cambridgeshire spiraled out of control within just eight months.

A ten-year tender to run Staffordshire cancer services should have been awarded by December, reports The Stoke Sentinal.

But the £687 million sell-off has now been scrapped over fears it would be ‘financially unsustainable’.

Israel’s Ex-Ambassador to UK Accused of Sexual Liaisons With Minors

Israel’s former ambassador to the UK has been accused of inviting men and boys for trysts late at night when his wife was not home. A British policeman filed a complaint with Israeli authorities about the incidents. A further investigation by the foreign ministry’s inspector general found that UK-born Ambassador Daniel Taub, who was ambassador from 2011-2015, violated security protocol by not notifying his chief of security of the identity of the visitors. The purpose of recording visitors is in order to prevent Israeli diplomatic personnel from being blackmailed or compromised. Since MI5 knew of Taub’s activities, the Israeli foreign ministry was concerned that he might be compromised by them or that one of his paramours might attempt to extort payments from him.

 

 

There Is No Freedom Without Truth — Paul Craig Roberts

When the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991, the “Soviet threat” was replaced with the “Muslim threat” and the “War on Terror” took over from the Cold War. Despite a succession of false flag attacks and warnings of a “thirty years war,” a few thousand lightly armed jihadists were an insufficient replacement for the Soviet Union and its thousands of nuclear ICBMs. It was an uncomfortable notion that the “world’s only superpower” could not dispose of a few terrorists.

So we are back to the Cold War with Russia. The propaganda is fast and furious. “Putin is the new Hitler.” “Russia invaded Ukraine.” Russia is about to invade the Baltics and Poland.” “Putin is a corrupt multi-billionaire.” “Putin is scheming to recreate the Soviet Union.” These accusations become headlines despite US military spending being a dozen or more times higher than Russian military spending and the Russian government expressing no hegemonic aspirations.

People Have A ‘Fundamental Right’ To Own Assault Weapons, Court Rules

In a major victory for gun rights advocates, a federal appeals court on Thursday sided with a broad coalition of gun owners, businesses and organizations that challenged the constitutionality of a Maryland ban on assault weapons and other laws aimed at curbing gun violence.

A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit said the state’s prohibition on what the court called “the vast majority of semi-automatic rifles commonly kept by several million American citizens” amounted to a violation of their rights under the Constitution.

“In our view, Maryland law implicates the core protection of the Second Amendment — the right of law-abiding responsible citizens to use arms in defense of hearth and home,” Chief Judge William Traxler wrote in the divided ruling.

Provisions that outlaw these firearms, Traxler wrote, “substantially burden this fundamental right.”

Bravo to Judge Traxler; someone in the US’s judiciary “gets it”!!

Scientists: West Coast bird die-off “is biggest ever recorded” — Stomachs completely empty

Scientists think Gulf of Alaska seabird die-off is biggest ever recorded… The mass of dead seabirds that have washed up on Alaska beaches in past months is unprecedented in size, scope and duration, a federal biologist said… The staggering die-off… is a signal that something is awry in the Gulf of Alaska, said Heather Renner, supervisory wildlife biologist at the Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge… It coincides with widespread deaths of other marine animals, from whales in the Gulf of Alaska to sea lions in California…

Fracking leaks methane into the water, which depletes the oxygen. Without oxygen the fish die off, and the animals that feed on those fish starve to death. The chain of life is collapsing and all due to greed.

 

WHY IS MY KINDERGARTNER BEING GROOMED FOR THE MILITARY AT SCHOOL?

When he got home from Iraq, Hart Viges began sorting through his boyhood toys, looking for some he could pass on to his new baby nephew. He found a stash of G.I. Joes – his old favorites – and the memories came flooding back.

Please note that these parents were not notified about this impending lesson in advance, and had absolutely no power to ask that their kids be opted-out from this pro-military exercise.

On the other side of the island of Oahu, there is the very formidable Kaneohe Marine Air Station, which every year features a “fun fair” where families are invited, and the atmosphere is one of a carnival.

But one of the most interesting aspects of this is watching young military men, who are great communicators, and great with kids, talking to wide-eyed youngsters about the wonders of the weapons they are seeing, and sometimes, very carefully, climbing over.

Of course, no mention is ever made, during these “teachable moments”, of the carnage and annihilation, these instruments of death create.

This is the propaganda of empire, which cares not that our young men and women are killed or maimed for life; just that the wars provide the necessary profits and logistical resource control to allow that financial empire to grow, with absolutely no thought as to what the human sacrifice must happen in order to maintain and enhance corporate profits.

Unreliable Power: Major Technical Failure Sidelines Another Offshore Wind Park…Adding To Exploding Costs

According to NDR, the power supply has been interrupted due to a failed underwater power transmission cable that serves to deliver the power onshore. That means a loss of 7 million euros per month in revenue, which the consumers will have to pay because Germany’s feed-in act required power companies to pay for the electricity produced by wind parks even if it is never delivered. If that sounds strange, it is so because the market-hostile law is the sort of thing one would find only in old communist regimes.

NAVY STAGING 2-WEEK LONG ACTIVE SHOOTER DRILLS ON BASES NATIONWIDE

Starting this week, Sailors and Marines from coast to coast will spend half the month engaged in response training to stop active shooters and potential terrorists in their tracks.

The exercise, Solid Curtain-Citadel Shield 2016 (SC/CS16), will run through Feb. 12 and will test base police, fire and emergency management on how they respond to threats of active shooters and potential terrorists including role-playing on installation buildings with safe or simulated weapons to get a grip on how a more serious event could take place.

Navy officials cite past instances of attacks on installations stateside as a guide on what to be prepared for.

Last July, a terror attack by a gunman at two Navy installations in Chattanooga, Tennessee left four Marines and one Navy Sailor dead and an additional Marine and police officer wounded.

I cannot tell you why, but the announcement of these exercises is making me extraordinarily nervous.

To what end are these “exercises” happening, and what is the US government and military expecting to happen, that these exercises are deemed necessary right now?!?

Dieudonne was detained by immigration officials at Hong Kong International Airport shortly after arriving on a flight from Bangkok. The block on Dieudonne’s entry came reportedly after high-level diplomatic interventions by Israel and France, who warned that his planned appearances could have led to disorder and even violence if they went ahead … Israeli consul general in Hong Kong Sagi Karni praised the government for “taking the right measures.”

 

 

Anti-Semitism: Why Does It Exist? And Why Does it Persist?

Over the centuries, rage and hostility against Jews has repeatedly erupted in terrible violence. Again and again, Jews have been driven out of countries where they’d been living. Why does anti-Semitism exist? And why has furious hostility toward Jews broken out, again and again, in the most varied nations, eras and cultures? … Anti-Semitism is not a mysterious “disease.” As Herzl and Weizmann suggested, and as history shows, what is often called anti-Semitism is the natural and understandable attitude of people toward a minority with particularist loyalties that wields greatly disproportionate power for its own interests, rather than for the common good.

 

 

US tech companies have stashed over $420 billion overseas

It’s no secret that the US government wants companies to bring more of their offshore profits back home for the sake of taxes, and it’s now exceptionally clear as to why. Bloomberg has sifted through financial filings and discovered that the top eight American tech firms, including Apple, Google and Microsoft, are keeping more than $420 billion overseas — $69 billion of it added in just the past year. That’s over a fifth of the $2.1 trillion held abroad by American companies, and would easily cover a lot of government expenses. A tax on Microsoft’s recent profits alone ($29.6 billion) would cover NASA and the Commerce Department for a year; Apple ($23.3 billion) could take care of the Transportation Department and Social Security, and Oracle could foot the bill for the Labor Department.

Corporations get away with this…because they can.

and in light of the reality that corporations own the United States Government, I seriously doubt that this is going to change anytime soon.

 

 

US, JAPAN, CANADA, AUSTRALIA AND 8 OTHER COUNTRIES SIGN TRANS PACIFIC PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENT

The Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) would be horrible for Americans and the people of the world.

But most politicians are thoroughly corrupt. Neither the Democratic or Republican parties represent the interests of the American people. Both parties ignore the desires of their own bases.

So today, 12 countries – Brunei, Chile, New Zealand, Singapore, Australia Canada, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, Peru, United States and Vietnam – signed the TPP.

They never followed through on their promise of an open and lively debate.

Politicians in the US care only for the corporations which fund their campaigns; those people they allegedly represent have become totally irrelevant, and an annoyance to the acquisition of their person wealth.

At this moment, Americans politicians can only be characterised as a pernicious disease,metastasizing in a system guaranteed to offer them untold wealth, as long as they explicitly follow the orders of their corporate masters.

And Lloyd Blankfein wonders why the American people are furious, and ready for massive change this year, other than the establishment, which has bankrupted them, to assure the establishment’s permanent gain?!?!

Has Benjamin Netanyahu gone bananas? I don’t mean this as an aberration, like a politician who loses his marbles during a particular crisis. No, it was when I read the Israeli Prime Minister’s response to Ban Ki-moon, the UN Secretary-General, that I realised he just might be a bit insane. Ban referred to “the profound sense of alienation and despair driving some Palestinians … especially young people” since an increase in attacks on Israelis began last October. What Ban was saying was the truth, that “Palestinian frustration is growing under the weight of a half-century of occupation and the paralysis of the peace process”. And he spoke of how “oppressed peoples have demonstrated throughout the ages, it is human nature to react to occupation …”

LEAK REVEALS DENVER POLICE USE UNDERCOVER ‘SHADOW TEAMS’ TO TARGET PROTEST LEADERS

A leaked police manual reveals how Denver police respond to marches and other forms of protest, including their use of undercover “platoons” of officers to pick out leaders for later arrest.

On Jan. 19, Unicorn Riot, an independent media collective with several members in the state, published a heavily redacted version of the 2011 edition of the “Denver Police Department Crowd Management Manual” obtained through a Colorado Open Records Act request. Days later, an anonymous source sent them an unredacted copy of the 2008 edition of the manual. The two editions appear to have few differences and the policies described in both versions match the behavior of police toward protests, according to activists and journalists interviewed by MintPress News.

“This manual has been a tremendous help to our reporting in terms of understanding the police apparatus that is deployed at protests,” representatives of Unicorn Riot told MintPress by email.

The police in this country, very much thanks to their training courtesy of the IDF, have become a thuggocracy to be feared and avoided, whenever possible.

And NEVER, ever in this country call 911 to assist in controlling someone who is either mentally ill, or coming down off medications; there is at least a 50/50 chance that police “assistance” in those cases, will result in that person’s death.

Geiger Counters Unlikely to Detect Radiation in Food, Water

Geiger counters are probably ineffective for consumers in detecting hazardous levels of radiation in food and water at home, scientists, professors and device makers said.
Large samples should be tested in laboratory-like settings to obtain results, said Joseph Rotunda, who heads the radiation measurement division at toolmaker Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. Determining whether food, water or milk is safe also requires expert knowledge and more sophisticated equipment than the typical devices sold online, said Atsushi Katayama, a member of the Japan Society for Analytical Chemistry.

 

 

Sweden: Death By Immigration

The atmosphere on Swedish social media is now almost revolutionary. People post videos of themselves accusing the government of murder, of filling Sweden with violent people.

When Alexandra Mezher was murdered, she was alone in the residence with ten asylum seekers. She was stabbed by one of the “children” she cared for.

When National Police Commissioner Dan Eliasson appeared on the “Good Morning Sweden” TV show, the day after Mezher’s murder, he expressed sympathy for the murderer, but barely mentioned the victim. This sparked frenzied outrage on social media.

Pitchfork Time? “Elites Have Lost Their Healthy Fear Of The Masses”

From the time of the French Revolution until the collapse of communism, what successive generations of elites had in common was a sense of fear of what the aggrieved masses might do. In the first half of the 19th century they worried about a new Jacobin Terror, then they worried about socialist revolution on the model of the Paris Commune of 1871. One reason for the first world war was a growing sense of complacency among European elites. Afterwards they had plenty to worry about in the form of international communism, which remained a bogey until the 1980s.

HOW HILLARY CLINTON STOLE IOWA: VOTER FRAUD CAUGHT ON LIVE TV

The important problem is that the Bernie counters recounted everyone, while the Hillary counter was literally recorded telling someone else that she only added newcomers to the count she had before, and then when asked if she recounted everyone, she lied to the organizer and said “Yes”. This means that if anyone left the caucus site who was supporting Bernie, then they were removed by Bernie’s recounters, but any Hillary supporter who left the caucus site was treated as though they were still there for the purposes of the recount. Thus, artificial inflation of her numbers occurred unless everyone who left was a Bernie delegate, on top of the Hillary campaign surrogate lying to an election official to cover up her (negligent at best, malicious at worst) mistake.

And they left the recount up to a Yea Nay vote, which is just ridiculous.

 

 

22 Signs That The Global Economic Turmoil We Have Seen So Far In 2016 Is Just The Beginning

As bad as the month of January was for the global economy, the truth is that the rest of 2016 promises to be much worse. Layoffs are increasing at a pace that we haven’t seen since the last recession, major retailers are shutting down hundreds of locations, corporate profit margins are plunging, global trade is slowing down dramatically, and several major European banks are in the process of completely imploding.

 

 

Syrian rebels are losing Aleppo and perhaps also the war

Syrian rebels battled for their survival in and around Syria’s northern city of Aleppo on Thursday after a blitz of Russian airstrikes helped government loyalists sever a vital supply route and sent a new surge of refugees fleeing toward the border with Turkey.

The Russian-backed onslaught against rebel positions in Aleppo coincided with the failure of peace talks in Geneva, and helped reinforce opposition suspicions that Russia and its Syrian government allies are more interested in securing a military victory over the rebels than negotiating a settlement.

Why Is My Kindergartner Being Groomed for the Military at School?

My partner and I, as longtime antiwar activists, work hard to talk to our daughter about war, violence and peace in age-appropriate ways.

That’s why we were shocked this November when, shortly after Veterans Day, our daughter came home from kindergarten with a worksheet that asked the children to decide which branch of the military they would like to join. The class had been working on charts in math class, taking polls and graphing the results, which usually fell more along the lines of what flavors of pie they preferred.

America’s Myth of a Peaceful Nation

“We are a peaceful nation,” claimed Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson in an interview with Katie Couric late last year.

Carson voiced a view that is held by many in our society. Like most people around the world, we naturally like to think of ourselves as a peace loving country.

Unfortunately, the record does not bear this out. It, in fact, indicates something quite opposite: The United States has had a long and bloody history of aggression and war making.

Wells Fargo Insider Says Bank Is Preparing For Emergency Scenario

If taken at face value and believed, why would Wells Fargo be doing this? What “emergency” could take place that might cause people to swarm to a bank in such numbers that they would have to lock the bank and only allow three customers in at a time?

A bank collapse? An economic collapse? a Currency collapse?

None of these things would be good and if the claims above are true, it is a dangerous signal to the rest of us to get some money out to tie-us-over for a month or so in the event everything shuts down.

Clinton defends speaking fees, says she can’t be bought

Hillary Clinton insisted on Wednesday that she hasn’t been influenced by the hundreds of thousands of dollars in speaking fees she received from major financial institutions, her latest effort to blunt attacks from Sen. Bernie Sanders that she can’t be a progressive given the way she raises money from Wall Street.

In a town hall hosted by CNN, Clinton said she collected money for years in part because she wasn’t thinking about running for president, and that it’s normal for high-level cabinet officials to give speeches and accept fees. When asked why she accepted $675,000 in fees from a Wall Street bank, she explained, “that’s what they offered me,” and said that money won’t affect policy.

 

 

Flu epidemic kills over 190 in Ukraine — health ministry

“Since the epidemic’s outbreak 192 flu-related lethal cases were registered, including three deaths among children,” the ministry said. Over 3.2 million people got infected with flu in Ukraine, the figure grew by 65,000 only in the past 24 hours. Some 50% of those infected are children under 17. The epidemic thresholds are exceeded in 19 of 27 Ukraine’s regions. Health ministry data shows swine flu, officially known as influenza virus A/H1N1, is spreading in Ukraine.

 

 

Russia expects international reaction to Turkey’s violation of Open Skies Treaty

The ministry said “this unprecedented step by Turkey contradicts one of the key goals of the Treaty – to contribute to a greater openness and transparency via confidence measures, whose importance, by the way, NATO likes to discuss. Besides, the Turkish side violated the key principle of the above-mentioned multilateral document – observation of any point on the territory of a state that is its member. We are convinced that Ankara had no right to deny us the holding of an observation mission over its territory and that the denial testifies to the desire of the Turkish side to hide some activity that probably is taking place in areas the Russian jet was to have flown above. The closure of the airspace occurred on a request from the Turkish Foreign Ministry, which suggests that the step has a political motivation.

Canadian Academic Dr. Hassan Diab, Wrongfully Convicted for a Crime He did not Commit

We want to use the power of the documentary form to tell the story of our friend Dr. Hassan Diab [pictured left], a Canadian academic who is at serious risk of a wrongful conviction for a crime he did not commit.

Hassan was extradited to France in November 2014, where he is expected to stay in pretrial detention for at least two years. In France, Hassan is subjected to an unjust legal process where discredited handwriting analysis and unsourced intelligence are used against him.

We would like to make a good quality documentary for online sharing and public showings to spread the word far and wide about the injustices in Hassan’s case. We hope this documentary will help raise awareness about Hassan’s case and Canada’s unfair extradition law, stop the use of discredited evidence against Hassan, and prevent his wrongful conviction.

For the details, see Canada must demand fair investigation by France in case of Hassan Diab

What Really Poisoned the Water in Flint, Michigan

The mantra of every Koch-headed, right-wing politico is that government should be run like a business, always focused on cutting costs.

Welcome to Flint, Michigan. This impoverished, mostly African-American city has indeed been run like a private corporation since Republican Gov. Rick Snyder appointed his “emergency manager” to seize control of Flint’s heavily indebted local government. Snyder’s coup d’etat usurped the people’s democratic voice and effectively imposed a corporate-style autocracy over them, run by his unelected CEO-like manager who answers only to Snyder.

Flat Earth Psy Op is the Real Conspiracy

This is a “PsyOp” which requires large funding from intelligence agencies and governments and corporations. It has become a tool of reverse psychology e.g. if you are broad minded enough to know 911 was a false flag; and now just accept Flat Earth theories. When you engage with this Psyop, a paid shill replies from their “Flat Earth Manual” like some cyborg, there is a mass of paid bloggers on CIA pay roll to push this.

The corporate media is losing their audience to the independent media, and the only way to get their audience back is to start telling the truth. But their masters will not allow them to do that, so their only remaining tactic is to try to make the independent media look kooky with claims about Apollo being faked, no plane at the Pentagon on 9-11, chemtrails, UFOs, and so forth. The fact that they are trying to sell this flat Earth crap betrays the degree of desperation they are feeling.

Turkey preparing for military action in Syria: Russia

The Russian Defense Ministry spokesman says Moscow has serious grounds to suspect Turkey of preparing for a military incursion into Syria.

“The Russian Defense Ministry registers a growing number of signs of hidden preparation of the Turkish Armed Forces for active actions on the territory of Syria,” Igor Konashenkov said on Thursday.

“We are recording more and more signs of concealed preparations by the Turkish military,” he added.

Further evidence of these preparations can be found in today’s http://tass.ru/en/defense/854610:

Many checkpoints on the Turkish-Syrian border can be used for preparing infrastructure for a military intrusion into Syria, Konashenkov went on to say. Konashenkov showed the photos of one of the border checkpoints, where grounds protected by security guards were being expanded. “In wartime, such methods are used for preparing the transport infrastructure ahead of a military intrusion. Such grounds are usually used for ensuring quick movement of military convoys with weapons and ammunition as well as for prompt transportation and evacuation of personnel. There are plenty of such examples, in which troops and military hardware are involved, on the Syrian-Turkish border,” the Russian Defense Ministry spokesperson said. Russia’s Defense Ministry earlier provided convincing video evidence to the world public that Turkish self-propelled artillery systems were shelling Syrian populated areas in north Latakia. “We’re surprised that talkative representatives of the Pentagon and NATO and numerous so-called organizations for the protection of human rights in Syria have kept silent so far, despite our call for reacting to these actions,” the Russian Defense Ministry spokesman said. Russia’s Defense Ministry has intensified all kinds of reconnaissance in the Middle East, the spokesman said. “That is why, if someone in Ankara thinks that the cancellation of the Russian inspectors’ observance flight over Turkey will help conceal something, then this looks unprofessional,” Konashenkov said. More: http://tass.ru/en/defense/854610

IF, in fact, these Russia reports are true (and I see no reason to doubt them), the following scenario is very plausible.

Turkey attacks Syria; Russia counter-attacks Turkish forces (or there is a false flag making it appear that this was the case), and Turkey invokes Article 5 of the NATO Treaty.

This means that all of NATO’s military are, by treaty obligation, constrained to protect Turkey from any attacker, as though they all had been attacked by Russia.

Welcome to World War III, ladies and gentlemen.

Why the ‘Sultan of Chaos’ is freaking out

Picture sleepless nights at ‘Sultan’ Erdogan’s palace in Ankara. Imagine him livid when he learns the Syrian Arab Army (SAA), backed by Russian air power, started a preemptive Battle of Aleppo – through the Bayirbucak region – cutting off Ankara’s top weaponizing corridor and Jihadi highway.

Who controls this corridor will control the final outcome of the war in Syria.

Notorious Saudi intel mastermind Prince Turki, a former mentor of one Osama bin Laden, has been to Paris on a PR offensive; all he could muster was an avalanche of non-denial denials – and blaming the whole Syria tragedy on Bashar al-Assad.

It would be terrific if military intervention would just shatter before the US and Turkey get their way in the region, thanks to Russia’s invited intervention in Syria; unfortunately, however, there are troubling Russian reports of Turkey preparing for an all-out invasion of Syria.

And THAT could well lead to World War III.

US-Led Coalition Continues Bombing Syria, Telling Russia to Stop

The US-led international coalition continued bombing targets across Syria, Russia’s military said, while demanding that Russia stops its own campaign as part of a ceasefire deal.

Aircraft of the international coalition inflicted 12 powerful strikes in five provinces of Syria between Monday and Wednesday, Russia’s Defense Ministry said on Thursday.

Defense Ministry spokesman Major-General Igor Konashenkov noted that Russia has been accused of targeting areas which “never had terrorist groups” amid a tentative preparation for talks, an allegation he called absurd. Konashenkov countered allegations previously voiced by US Secretary of State John Kerry, noting that the US-led coalition has continued its strikes while condemning Russia’s.

“This is especially true of targets engaged outside Raqqa, where aviation of the so-called anti-ISIL coalition supposedly does not fly and does not bomb,” Konashenkov told reporters.

The Russians are being effective, in tandem with their Syrian military counterparts, so much so that they are very close to taking the city of Aleppo.

Kerry’s hypocrisy is showing big-time, because if Syria and Russia are able to control the Western part of the country, they will have far more leverage as to what happens with the rest of Syria, and that is the polar opposite of what the US and Turkey want to see happen here.

The other is that neither of the party’s two remaining contenders has much to gain from any kind of detailed scrutiny of their own policies and records.

Provocative’ NATO Build-Up Threatens Remaining US-Russia Ties

The decision by the US Department of Defense to boost spending on confronting Russia in Europe and fighting the Islamic State elsewhere will provide no military benefit whatsoever, former US Chief of Naval Operations science and policy advisor Theodore Postol told Sputnik.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The proposed boost in NATO-related spending is “a provocation that builds on the ‘original sin’ of NATO expansion, which led to the predictable breakdown of relations between Russia and the West,” Postol stated on Wednesday.

On Tuesday, Defense Secretary Ashton Carter announced the Defense Department will spend 50 percent more in fiscal year 2017 on its fight against the Islamic State and will request $3.4 billion in its fiscal year 2017 budget to support NATO allies in Europe.

The narrative here, which this analyst has not yet grasped, is the reality that the US government is spoiling for an actual military confrontation against Russia, to prevent the rise of the Russian economy and the ruble.

Look at the Russian demonisation in the West right now, coupled with a massive pre-positioning of arms, material, and troops in Europe, and particularly in Eastern Europe.

Just because a move may well be the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid thing the American government can do is, unfortunately, no guarantee that it will not do it.

The problem here is that the US military does not have the troop strength, the money, or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war against Russia, and that is what makes a military option here so scarily dangerous.

Closing In: Russia, Iran, Assad “Encircle” Syria’s Largest City As Peace Talks Collapse In Geneva

As we noted four months ago, if Russia and Hezbollah manage to recapture the city, it would effectively restore the Assad government in Syria even if the east of the country is still controlled by Islamic State.

Fast forward four months and it appears that after a protracted fight, Russia and Hezbollah are indeed poised to recapture the city where militants are now surrounded. Critically, Russia and Iran have now cut off supply lines from Turkey.

In any event, the urgency expressed by the US, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey shouldn’t be mistaken for some kind of benevolent regard for the lives are lost each and every day the war drags on. Rather, Washington, Riyadh, and Ankara know that if Aleppo falls, that’s it for the “moderate” opposition.

The big question, then, is what are DC and Istanbul prepared to actually do to prevent this from happening, and what will they do if they cannot?!?

Federal grand jury indicts 16 people in Malheur refuge takeover

I wish the USC # was in here so we could read the law they are charged under. Also unless it is a mistake,they indicted a 15 year old girls as being one of the ringleaders. This whole thing smells bad.

Ammon Bundy and 15 others accused in the armed takeover of a federal wildlife refuge have been indicted in court on charges of conspiracy to impede federal officers through intimidation, threats or force.

A federal grand jury returned the indictments Wednesday, and they were unsealed Thursday morning.

It accuses Ammon Bundy, the leader of the monthlong armed occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge outside Burns, and the other key players of conspiring to prevent employees of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service from working at the refuge, taking over the property armed with firearms and intimidating the people of Harney County.

As Much as Media Would Like Them to, Trump’s Supporters Are Unlikely to Evaporate

There’s a trope in post-Iowa election commentary that suggests that since Donald Trump’s appeal is based on his self-presentation as a “winner,” his loss in the caucuses is likely to cause his support to evaporate. Thus David Brooks (New York Times, 2/2/16):

MINISTRY OF TRUTH: ISRAEL AIMS TO ANNUL PRESS CREDENTIALS FOR ‘CONTRARY TO REALITY’ HEADLINES

Israel has threatened to annul the press credentials of journalists and editors who choose ‘contrary to reality’ headlines for their articles. The move comes in response to a publication from US broadcaster CBS after a terror attack in Jerusalem on Wednesday. CBS reacted to the terrorist attack which claimed the life of a 19-year-old female officer with a post titled “3 Palestinians killed as daily violence grinds on,” triggering outrage among Israeli officials.

Zika: Biggest News Service In America Absolutely Clueless

Okay, here we go.

Of course, I’m talking about the Associated Press (AP)—and its recent coverage of the Zika story: January 27, “270 of 4,180 suspected microcephaly cases confirmed.”

AP actually had its hands on the most explosive information possible, it reported that information in one stunning paragraph, and then it let that paragraph sit there like a dead corpse. It didn’t do anything with it. Just another day at the office. Connect the dots? See the implications? Never heard of it.

 

 

AFTER BOTTLING MICHIGAN’S CLEAN WATER, NESTLE COMES UNDER FIRE FOR TIES TO SNYDER ADMIN

As celebrities, corporations and citizens alike donates thousands of gallons of bottled water to the lead-poisoned residents of Flint, Michigan, Nestle, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of bottled water, has come under fire for its ties to the state’s water woes. The global food and drink giant teamed up with Wal-Mart, Coca-Cola, and Pepsi to deliver up to 6.5 million bottles of water to 10,000 school students in Flint. Celebrities including Madonna and Jimmy Fallon have pledged tens of thousands of dollars toward relief efforts.

But what the Post has to say about Cuba illustrates some unfortunate tendencies that have warped policy debate on other issues as well.

Backed By Russian Jets, Syrian Army Closes In On Aleppo

A Syrian army source said the city of Aleppo would soon be encircled by government forces as rebels pounded by Russian air strikes expressed hope that the failure of Geneva peace talks would encourage their foreign backers to send better weapons.

Turkey, a major sponsor of the insurgency against President Bashar al-Assad, said there was no point to peace talks while Russia carried out attacks in Syria. Moscow confirmed a Russian military trainer was killed in Syria this week, but denied that Russian servicemen were fighting on the ground.

The United Nations on Wednesday suspended the first peace talks in two years, halting an effort that seemed doomed from the start as the war raged unabated on the ground and government forces severed a major rebel supply route into strategically-important Aleppo, Syria’s biggest city before the war began.

Bernie has Goldman Sachs CEO running scared: Sanders’ candidacy is a ‘dangerous moment’

The head of a major banking firm is “feeling the Bern” but not in the way many of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ voters are.

Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein said Sanders is tapping into class-based anger against growing inequality and called his candidacy a “dangerous moment.” Blankfein was speaking Wednesday on CNBC’s “Squawk Box,” according to Politico.

“It has the potential to personalize it, it has the potential to be a dangerous moment. Not just for Wall Street not just for the people who are particularly targeted but for anybody who is a little bit out of line,” Blankfein said. “It’s a liability to say I’m going to compromise I’m going to get one millimeter off the extreme position I have and if you do you have to back track and swear to people that you’ll never compromise. It’s just incredible. It’s a moment in history.”

In January, Sanders was asked to list examples of corporate greed, and he listed Blankfein, according to Politico.

A short memo to Lloyd Blankfein: sir, what the too big to fail banks did to so many when the mortgage and economic crises hit, coupled with relentless offshoring/outsourcing of jobs, has many Americans furious, underemployed, and economically on the skids.

They have an absolute right to their anger; the question is, how will that anger be expressed?!? As a Christian pacifist, who never advocates violence (because violence is something the Federal government is ready to suppress, with extreme prejudice), I am hopeful that the anger people feel will not be expressed through violence.

Unfortunately you, and those like you, are incapable of having a profoundly necessary “Buddha on the Road moment”, because you have become deaf, dumb, and blind to the misery so many of the policies you champion have caused.

But there is a question that you and your colleagues need to address: if candidates for both parties are simply “pre-manufactured” and both completely beholden to the major corporations and banks, what does that say about the American political process?!?

Such choices, by the Democrats and Republicans, would ultimately and logically mean that the American people have absolutely, utterly no say whatsoever in the political process, and it is so crooked that the corporately “chosen” politicians have to screw their socks on in the morning.

The Fed needs to be abolished; money should become a public utility, and not a loan at interest; the allegedly “too big to fail” banks need to be broken up, and the needs of the people, not the needs of the corporations, must again become the first, and foremost priorities for this government.

The so-called “financial establishment” has had more than enough time to fix those fundamental, integral problems which have been destroying the American economy, and with it, its people, and has failed, utterly, miserably, and horrifically.

This, sir, ultimately, cannot continue, and I hope the change coming in this country will be peaceful

 

 

Another Runaway General: Army Deploys Psy-Ops on U.S. Senators

The U.S. Army illegally ordered a team of soldiers specializing in “psychological operations” to manipulate visiting American senators into providing more troops and funding for the war, Rolling Stone has learned – and when an officer tried to stop the operation, he was railroaded by military investigators.

The orders came from the command of Lt. Gen. William Caldwell, a three-star general in charge of training Afghan troops – the linchpin of U.S. strategy in the war. Over a four-month period last year, a military cell devoted to what is known as “information operations” at Camp Eggers in Kabul was repeatedly pressured to target visiting senators and other VIPs who met with Caldwell. When the unit resisted the order, arguing that it violated U.S. laws prohibiting the use of propaganda against American citizens, it was subjected to a campaign of retaliation.

Shell CEO confirms 10K layoffs due to merger with BG

The CEO of Shell early Thursday confirmed there will be 10,000 layoffs as the company merges with BG Group and deals with lower oil prices.

“The completion of the BG transaction, which we are expecting in a matter of weeks, marks the start of a new chapter in Shell, rejuvenating the company, and improving shareholder returns,” CEO Ben Van Beurden stated in a press release. “As we have previously indicated, this will include a reduction of some 10,000 staff and direct contractor positions in 2015-16 across both companies.”

The announcement comes after the company reported a 44 percent drop in Q4 earnings.

Currency Wars and ‘The Big Reset’

MEDIA IGNORES DOZENS OF BLACKWATER MERCENARIES KILLED IN YEMEN

While an abundance of attention has been placed on the alarming growth of ISIS in Syria and Iraq, the world has largely overlooked the civil war in Yemen, which has been ongoing for nearly a year. After Houthi rebels took control of the government and forced the president to step down, Saudi Arabia intervened in March of 2015 with airstrikes and a naval blockade.

They have since been joined by a coalition of 9 other Middle Eastern and African countries, who are intent on removing the Houthis from power because it’s believed that the Iranians are backing them. Since the Saudi-led intervention began, 7,000 people have been killed by their airstrikes, many of them women and children.

The top executives of Academi are deeply linked in with the US government and military, doing the “dirty work” when the US government doesn’t want to directly get their hands dirty.

The rise of the US government’s use of private mercenary forces in the 21st century is very troubling, ethically and financially, and it appears as though the practice will continue, unabated.

 

 

General Says Israel ‘Effectively’ Part of Anti-ISIS Coalition

Israeli Major General Nitzan Alon today told reporters that Israel considers ISIS “an enemy” and that it shares so much intelligence with the members of the US anti-ISIS coalition that it is “effectively” a part of that coalition itself.

This seems to be a significant shift from what other Israeli officials have said, with Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon only weeks ago insisting that Israel “prefers ISIS” to take over Syria rather than the Assad government, an ally of Iran, remaining in power.

 

 

Germany and the UNO against Syria

The neo-conservatives and liberal hawks who have been preparing the war against Syria since 2001 have been relying on several states from the UNO and the Gulf Co-operation Council.

Together, with the support of Berlin, they have been using and are still manipulating the United Nations in order to destroy Syria.

 

 

Seattle theater to stage play about Tylenol murders

The play centers on the “moral conundrums” faced by police and Johnson & Johnson. But it also focuses on the tireless pursuit of what happened by Michelle Rosen, daughter of victim Mary “Lynn” Reiner, of Winfield.

Rosen was only 8 years old when she saw her mother drop to the kitchen floor and die of cyanide poisoning. Years later, that memory drove her to spend years doing her own in-depth investigation. Despite obstacles, Rosen uncovered information about the case (much of it is on tylenolmurders.com) and came to believe the Tylenol tampering occurred in the distribution channel, not the widely believed theory that a lone madman planted cyanide in Tylenol bottles across the suburbs.

Rosen’s research was used in “The Tylenol Mafia.” However, her findings have been largely ignored by investigators.

Rosen, who now lives in Texas, said she doesn’t know Bryce and hasn’t seen his script. But she is hopeful the play will help bring the spotlight back onto the cold case.

Michelle Rosen has been a guest on the radio show many times, and we will have her back to talk about this new play.

 

 

Disgraced ex-IMF chief Strauss-Kahn joins Ukraine bank

Disgraced former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn has been appointed to the supervisory board of a bank owned by Ukraine’s second richest businessman Viktor Pinchuk.

Kiev’s Kredit-Dnipro Bank said the decision to accept Strauss-Kahn and five others to the advisory body was taken on Monday and goes into immediate effect. It added that Strauss-Kahn would serve as an independent committee member who does not represent shareholders’ interests.

Pinchuk is the son-in-law of former Ukrainian president Leonid Kuchma and is believed to have holdings worth US$1.43 billion (€1.29 billion), according to Forbes magazine.

Strauss-Kahn led the International Monetary Fund from 2007 until his forced 2011 resignation over rape charges in a New York hotel. The scandal derailed the Frenchman’s presidential ambitions even though it was later dismissed in court.

Talk about a marriage made in heaven!!

And if Kredit-Dnipro Bank has made the statement that “…Strauss-Kahn would serve as an independent committee member who does not represent shareholders’ interests.”, it is obvious he will be representing the interests only of its owner, Viktor Pinchuk.

Unfortunately, this won’t help the struggling Ukranian economy one bit, and I am sure that Pinchuk and Strauss-Khan have plans to pick up a number of failing Ukrainian businesses for a song, strip their assets, and leave many more unemployed, in the truest sense of vulture capitalism.

 

 

Glyphosate causing a wave of chronic disease across America

Their correlation study determined that it’s lethal even in small amounts, debunking the notion in which some people suggest that its levels are so low that it can’t possibly damage health.

Riyadh-backed group left talks amid Syrian army’s success — Russian Foreign Ministry

“The reason behind such a harsh step of the so-called Riyadh group is that the Syrian government army has made serious success over the past days in the north of the Aleppo province,” Zakharova said. As a result of the successful operation of the Syrian army and local militias, the gunmen were cut off the supply routes between the north of the Aleppo province and the Idlib province they control. “This was a serious blow for terrorists and those who are their accomplices and sponsors.” The diplomat said the case is that the groups of gunmen, including Jabhat al-Nusra and Ahrar ash-Sham, have reached an agreement with the Islamic State (IS) group on mutual supplies of fuel and ammunition to Idlib and agricultural goods from Idlib.

A GOLDEN AGE FOR PENTAGON WASTE

As we have often noted one of the giant logs stuck in the eye of many conservatives, people who typically argue for smaller government, is that they often defend military spending with little reservation. Defense, we are told is enumerated in the Constitution and as such is a legitimate expenditure. And yes, defense, is enumerated in the Constitution. Massive unchecked spending, undeclared wars, and bases around the world are not however enumerated in the Constitution.

(From US News)

Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, has called for a full audit of the unit responsible for the most egregious Afghan cases. And on Jan. 20th, the Senate Armed Services Readiness Subcommittee held hearings on the subject. The Pentagon’s witness, Principal Deputy Undersecretary of Defense for Policy Brian McKeon, was decidedly on the defensive as senators from both parties peppered him with questions about his department’s poor record keeping and lack of accountability.

This waste and corruption is going to bite the US military in a very sensitive spot, if allowed to continue to go unchecked.

With Russian and Chinese weapons makers, when items are field deployed, they are delivered on time, reasonably within budget, and work as advertised, if not better.

With American weapons makers, there is a nearly incestuous relationship between Congress (whose members are supported, covertly and overtly, by the large weapons makers) and those companies which get the defense contracts.

The outcome of all this is that when US weaponry is delivered, it is very late, has generally had huge cost over-runs, and doesn’t perform anywhere near what is specified, once it is field deployed.

IF the US gets into a major war with Russia, and/or or China, the brokenness of our weapons systems is not going to help matters one bit.

 

 

BEX ALERT – World War Three: Inside the War Room, BBC Two, review: ‘gripping’

War games. Bit of an oxymoron, isn’t it? However, Russia recently having annexed a whole chunk of the former Soviet Union, the prospect of an East-West conflict is less unimaginable now than it has been since 1989.

This film is a sales pitch to sell WW3 to the masses, and starts right out perpetuating the lie that Russia annexed Crimea, when the truth is that Crimea voted to secede from Ukraine following the US-backed coup in early 2014, then asked to join the Russian Republics.

Russia not going to enter arms race with US — foreign ministry

“We have already commented on the Pentagon’s plans to increase military expenditure four-fold in 2017, with the main focus on the European war theater. All this takes place under the pretext of containing Russia. The fact that all this is done in a very aggressive manner, under the pretense of some potentially possible Russian aggression causes perplexity and disgust. All this, as we see from these statements, creates grounds for extensive military planning against Russia and taking practical steps to bring its military infrastructure closer to Russia’s borders. No one is going to get involved in any new arms race. No one will try to catch up with or overtake others,” Zakharova said. “Of course, we would like to remind our colleagues in Washington and Brussels that any unfriendly steps and attempts to exert pressure on Russia will receive an adequate response — both political and diplomatic and in the sphere of defense.

TONY BLAIR WILL [SHOULD] FACE TRIAL FOR WAR CRIMES OVER IRAQ

Tony Blair should be charged with war crimes for ordering the 2003 invasion of Iraq, Labour leadership frontrunner Jeremy Corbyn has claimed.
In an extraordinary attack on Labour’s most successful ever leader, Mr Corbyn said that ‘those that made the decisions’ in the run-up to the conflict should be put on trial.
He said Mr Blair should be made to ‘explain’ launching an ‘illegal’ war which he said helped cause recent migrant deaths in the Mediterranean.

Supporters of Mr Corbyn have claimed he is the ‘antidote’ to the Blairite ‘virus’ in the Labour party, despite Mr Blair winning an historic three general elections for Labour.
The 2003 Iraq war remains one of the most damaging and divisive decisions of the Blair government.

Speaking in an interview on BBC2’s Newsnight, Mr Corbyn said Mr Blair will have to answer for his decision to join US President George Bush sending in troops to overthrow Saddam Hussein.

 

 

U.S. CITY ‘OVERRUN’ WITH CRIMINAL REFUGEES

More than 120 people braved the snow and ice Monday to rally in front of the Missoula County Courthouse, protesting an effort by the Obama administration and its army of community organizers to plant foreign “refugees” into small cities in western Montana.

One of the speakers was a woman who moved recently to Montana from Amarillo, Texas, which has been inundated with thousands of refugees over the past 15 years.

“Amarillo is overrun with refugees,” said Karen Sherman, who stood and spoke to the crowd amid blowing wind and falling snowflakes. Sherman just moved to Missoula, a college town that serves as home to the University of Montana.

It’s a far cry from Amarillo, which she described as a city of rampant crime and cracking social fabric, thanks to the heavy influx of refugees sent there by the U.S. State Department in cooperation with the United Nations.

 

 

Julian Assange is in arbitrary detention, UN panel finds

A United Nations panel has decided that Julian Assange’s three-and-a-half years in the Ecuadorian embassy amount to “arbitrary detention”, leading his lawyers to call for the Swedish extradition request to be dropped immediately.

A Swedish foreign ministry spokeswoman confirmed that the UN panel, due to publish its findings on Friday, had concluded that Assange was “arbitrarily detained”.

The WikiLeaks founder sought asylum from Ecuador in June 2012 to avoid extradition to Sweden to face questioning over rape and sexual assault allegations, which he denies.

The panel’s findings were disclosed to the Swedish and British governments on 22 January, and will be published on Friday morning. Their judgment is not legally binding but can be used to apply pressure on states in human rights cases.

It will be interesting to see precisely how this plays out.

The mainstream media’s false narrative is causing the public to fear a benign, asymptomatic viral infection, as the true origins of birth defects and brain damage go unstudied. Also, the mainstream media fails to tell the whole story of why Zika has become such a big problem in Brazil in recent years and how the outbreak is connected to the release of genetically modified mosquitoes in 2012.

FORMER DHS BOSS PUTS UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA EMPLOYEES UNDER SECRET SURVEILLANCE

Former DHS boss Janet Napolitano — who once stated she “doesn’t use email” (for many reasons, but mainly to dodge accountability) — is now showing her underlings at the University of California why they, too, might not want to “use email”: someone might be reading them over their shoulders.

UC professor Christopher Newfield has the inside details of the recently-exposed monitoring system secretly deployed by the University of California (and approved by school president Napolitano) to keep tabs on the communications, web surfing and file routing of its employees. The SF Chronicle has an article on the secretly-installed spyware behind its paysieve [try this link], but Newfield has the internal communications.

The installation of the third-party monitoring software was so secretive that even the university’s campus information technology committee was forbidden from discussing it with other staff. The committee has now decided to go public.

I do not quite know what the University of California’s execs were thinking when they hired Napolitano, given her history as the DHS head, but they had to know what they were getting in hiring her; someone with absolute, complete contempt for civil liberty; academic freedoms; personal privacy; the Constitution; and the Bill of Rights.

Ukraine releases Vietnam’s citizens held by security service in Odessa — media

Ukraine’s authorities have released two citizens of Vietnam detained in a recent raid of the Security Service (SBU) in the Vietnamese neighborhood in the southern city of Odessa, local media reports said on Thursday citing the country’s embassy in Kiev… The special Alpha group of the SBU searched for the evidence of an illegal activity of migrants and in particular, foreign currency transactions. Journalists in Odessa said the SBU agents broke into the apartments and cut open the doors even when the owners were not at home. The citizens claimed the agents took their money and valuables. After the incident, the head of Vietnam’s Foreign Ministry’s Consular Department Ly Quoc Tuan held a meeting with Ukraine’s Ambassador to Vietnam Alexei Shovkoplias on Tuesday. The Vietnamese diplomat said Ukraine’s actions were unacceptable and demanded official explanations.

A mechanism of the corrupt American elite has been launched. This was in Iraq, is in Syria and around Europe,” the senator said.

The allegations were included in NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg’s 2015 annual report, released on January 28. “We have nothing to add to what is said in the report,” the NATO headquarters told TASS on Thursday. The report has been circulated by mass media in Sweden where a discussion is underway on whether this traditionally neutral European country should join NATO amid the so-called increased Russian threat. http://tass.ru/en/world/854447

 

 

Another deputy minister steps down after Ukrainian economy minister’s resignation

Ukraine’s First Deputy Minister of Economic Development and Trade Yulia Kovaliv said on Thursday she was going to resign after her boss, Aivarus Abromavicius, and two his deputies declared they were stepping down.
The leader of the Radical Party of Ukraine, Oleh Lyashko, made a statement to journalists in the country. “Why does Putin get the blame, if the government steals and lies to the people?! “There is no reason to blame the mirror if the face is crooked”, said the leader of the party. The country has the largest unemployment rate in nearly a quarter of a century, the fall of GDP has reached a critical point. Lyashko issued accusations against the existing Ukrainian authorities: “Why is Putin blamed, if it’s you that steals?”. According to his statement, the authorities deceive people, accepting corrupt and lobbied laws. http://www.fort-russ.com/2016/02/lyashko-why-is-putin-blamed-if.html

 

 

Ukrainian army shells Kominternovo in Donbass buffer zone — local authorities

“The shelling was conducted for two hours. No one has reported to me on destruction or those injured, but the shelling site may only be inspected in the morning,” the Donetsk News Agency quoted Morgun as saying. He said the Ukrainian army was possibly using large-caliber weapons, in particular 120-millimeter mortars. Earlier the Defense Ministry of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic [DPR] reported that fifteen 82-millimeter shells were fired at Kominternovo from the Ukrainian side over the past 24 hours.

 

Feds fight disclosure of Hillary Clinton Whitewater indictment drafts

The National Archives is fighting a lawsuit trying to force disclosure of several draft indictments of Hillary Clinton prepared by a Whitewater prosecutor in the 1990s.

In a brief filed late Tuesday, Justice Department lawyers and the Archives argue that disclosure of the draft indictments would lead to an unwarranted invasion of Clinton’s privacy and violate a court rule protecting grand jury secrecy.

“Despite the role that Mrs. Clinton occupied as the First Lady during President Clinton’s administration, Mrs. Clinton maintains a strong privacy interest in not having information about her from the files of the Independent Counsel disclosed,” wrote Martha Wagner Murphy, chief of the Archives “special access” branch that stores records of former independent counsels. “As an uncharged person, Hillary Rodham Clinton retains a significant interest in her personal privacy despite any status as a public figure.”

Sorry, but the public has a right to know all details of potential criminal activity by all candidates, and crime is not a private matter as all crimes have victims.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!

“[T]here seems to be nothing to prevent the transnational corporations taking possession of the planet and subjecting humanity to the dictatorship of capital… In order to crush any thought of organized resistance to the supporters of the new world order, tremendous police and military forces are being used to establish a doctrine of repression…” — Christian la Brie, Le Monde Diplomatique (Paris) May 1999, (Transatlantic Wheeling and Dealing)

DHS Official Thinks People Should Have To Give Up Their Anonymity To Use The Internet

Apparently, the only way to stop terrorists from hating us for our freedom is to strip away those offensive freedoms.

Erik Barnett, the DHS’s attache to the European Union, pitched some freedom-stripping ideas to a presumably more receptive audience via an article for a French policy magazine. Leveraging both the recent Paris attacks and the omnipresent law enforcement excuse for any bad idea — child porn — Barnett suggested victory in the War on Terror can be achieved by stripping internet users of their anonymity. You know, all of them, not just the terrorists.

I think this is more about finding whistle-blowers than finding terrorists.

Crypto flaw was so glaring it may be intentional eavesdropping backdoor

An open source network utility used by administrators and security professionals contains a cryptographic weakness so severe that it may have been intentionally created to give attackers a surreptitious way to eavesdrop on protected communications, its developer warned Monday.

Socat is a more feature-rich variant of the once widely used Netcat networking service for fixing bugs in network applications and for finding and exploiting security vulnerabilities. One of its features allows data to be transmitted through an encrypted channel to prevent it from being intercepted by people monitoring the traffic. Amazingly, when using the Diffie-Hellman method to establish a cryptographic key, Socat used a non-prime parameter to negotiate the key, an omission that violates one of the most basic cryptographic principles.

Syrian Civil War: Could Turkey be Gambling on an Invasion?

A month before Turkey shot down a Russian bomber which it accused of entering its airspace, Russian military intelligence had warned President Vladimir Putin that this was the Turkish plan. Diplomats familiar with the events say that Putin dismissed the warning, probably because he did not believe that Turkey would risk provoking Russia into deeper military engagement in the Syrian war.

In the event, on 24 November last year a Turkish F-16 shot down a Russian bomber, killing one of the pilots, in an attack that had every sign of being a well-prepared ambush. Turkey claimed that it was responding to the Russian plane entering its airspace for 17 seconds, but the Turkish fighters made every effort to conceal themselves by flying at low altitude, and they appear to have been on a special mission to destroy the Russian aircraft.

SAUDI WARPLANES BOMB CHILDREN IN SANAA

Saudi Arabia continues to shock the world with its crimes against civilians in Yemen. On this occasion, Saudi warplanes bombed children’s amusement park in Sanaa. The death toll is still undetermined, as local sources in Sanaa reports. Yemen has been under military attacks by Saudi Arabia since late March last year. This is not the first time the Saudi Air Force has carried out such a raid. Saudi Arabia has committed dozens of war crimes on the territory of Yemen. The strikes have taken a heavy toll on the impoverished country’s facilities and infrastructure, destroying many hospitals, schools, and factories. Last month the Saudi-led coalition attacked the day-care center for blind children in the Yemeni capital city of Sana’a. The fact Saudi warplanes bomb children in Sanaa is nothing but an element of psychological warfare in order to push the panic in the city, using tools and methods are subject to a rule of war crime.

Which might have be of fundamental importance for regional relations, the war in Syria, and the struggle against the jihadists. This is a momentous event for the regional situation and changes the geopolitical situation in this unstable, war-torn region. Barzani said that “the referendum is an inherent right of the Kurdish people to establish an independent state, and we will not ask anyone for permission.”

“Masks of the Revolution” Broadcasted on French TV Against Kiev’s Wishes

The documentary “Masks of the Revolution” is an investigation into the events in Ukraine during the “revolution” in 2014. Earlier, the Ukrainian Embassy in France asked Canal+ to reconsider their decision to broadcast the film. It was shown on Monday (1st February) evening on French TV against Kiev’s wishes. The author of the movie, a French journalist named Paul Moreira, over the course of a one-hour film recalled the events in Ukraine in 2014, starting from the protests on the Maidan and ending with the tragedy in the trade unions building in Odessa. During the filming, the reporter interviewed representatives of the nationalist party “Svoboda” and the groups “Azov” and “Right sector” (banned in Russia). The film is based on eyewitness accounts of the events, configured as nationalist and Pro-Russian.

The Senate Judiciary Committee chairman raised concerns about the role Cheryl Mills, then-chief of staff to Clinton, played in blocking a Freedom of Information Act request for Clinton’s email use in a pair of letters to the State Department and the agency’s inspector general Monday.

How Corruption Cripples America’s Military

America’s military budget is roughly 7.2 times that of Russia ($610 billion compared to $84.5 billion), but even Western news-accounts are saying that the weaponry produced in Russia is superior overall to the weaponry produced in the United States.

Compare the top-of-the-line fighter jets of the two countries: that’s the F-35 fighter-jet produced by the U.S. corporation Lockheed Martin, versus the Su-35 fighter jet produced by the Russian government (its wholly owned Sukhoi Company). The F-35 costs around $100 million per plane. The Su-35 costs around $65 million per plane.

Kiev Attempts Breakthrough in Donetsk, Residents Demand Removal of UAF From Donbass

The situation in Donbass has worsened. The UAF attempted a breakthrough on the Northern outskirts of Donetsk, with continued shelling of the Kuibyshevsky district of the capital of the DPR, Zaytsevo village on the outskirts of Gorlovka shudders from the shells of the Ukrainian security forces. According to the Ministry of Defense of the Donetsk People’s Republic, for the past day the UAF shelled DPR 109 times. Moreover, the Ukrainian security forces violated the ceasefire with the use of technology prohibited by the Minsk agreements. During the shelling the UAF used mortars of calibres of 120 mm, 46 times – 82 mm mortars 53 times and used AGS and small arms 10 times. There has been heavy fire tonight in Zaytsevo village, situated to the north of Gorlovka. According to the DPR, the UAF fired on a DPR-controlled part of the village for half an hour. From the position of the Ukrainian side there was about 80 minutes of caliber 82 and 120 mm.

 

 

Obama Will Ask for $1.1 Billion to Cut Heroin Deaths in U.S.

President Barack Obama will ask Congress for $1.1 billion in his next budget to combat the U.S. opioid abuse epidemic, a crisis so severe that it’s emerged as a 2016 campaign issue and has led two senators to block his nominee to run the Food and Drug Administration.
At least 28,648 people in the U.S. died of causes linked to opioid drugs in 2014, according to the Centers for Disease Control, almost as many as are killed annually in car crashes. The class of drugs includes heroin and some prescription painkillers such as oxycodone.
Obama will include the money in the budget plan for fiscal 2017 that he sends to Congress Feb. 9, the White House said Tuesday in a statement. The amount Obama wants to spend on the drug epidemic over two years is about the same as the $1 billion he’s requested to speed development of cancer treatments and try to find cures.

I have to shake my head, upon reading this, looking at the sheer hypocrisy here.

A number of years ago, little Portugal did something absolutely remarkable, and it worked. It decriminalised a small amount of drugs for personal use, then helped get people counseling to get off the drugs.

And the surprise was, this approach worked brilliantly, and the numbers indicated that far fewer kids started experimenting with drugs because of the program.

Of course, such a program was completely logical, and science-based, which means it has as much chance of being introduced in the US as pigs do of flying.

Additionally, are you aware that right now, under the US and NATO occupation, the production of opium poppies, from which heroin is manufactured, is soaring in Afghanistan?!?

And why are the US and NATO allowing this to continue?!?

Because it is the selling of this product which funds off-the-shelf operations undertaken by various alphabet soup agencies, such as the CIA, etc..

So when President Obama gets up and asks for money to combat this, it is only for public consumption, and he will, of course, allow the flourishing of the opium poppy crop in Afghanistan to continue, because it is financially lucrative, and the money stays off the Federal books for operations that reek of seediness.

Think Iran/Contra, and you’ll get the picture.

 

Farion: Lugansk and Donetsk Will Speak Ukrainian, or Face Desertion

Those in Donetsk and Lugansk should speak only the Ukrainian language, and those who disagree should leave the country and go to Russia. This was stated on the air of the TV channel ‘Zik’ by former MP Iryna Farion, now a teacher in one of the universities of Lviv. “It is the fault of the East that Ukrainian society is not capable of bringing adequate politicians to the surface who ultimately will explain to the East that it is Ukraine, and in Donetsk and Luhansk they should speak the Ukrainian language exclusively. If somebody doesn’t like it – the borders are open, they can get in a car and drive to Putin,” said Farion.

In bid to counter Putin, Obama seeks to quadruple military spending in Europe

President Barack Obama’s administration said Tuesday it was seeking to expand U.S. military spending in Europe four-fold in a bid to reassure allies still unsettled by Russia’s incursion into Ukraine.

The new spending would increase to $3.4 billion under the new plan, which is set to be formally unveiled next week as part of Obama’s final presidential budget.

The Pentagon also said Tuesday it was ramping up spending for the battle against ISIS, doubling last year’s request to $7 billion.

The White House said that figure would allow for “continuous U.S. armored brigade rotations” through stations in central and eastern Europe, as well as ramped-up U.S. participation in NATO military exercises and the deployment of additional combat vehicles and supplies to the region.

Obama has sought to affirm the U.S. commitment to NATO ever since Russia annexed sections of Ukraine in 2014, causing alarm in other neighboring countries, some of which belong to the military alliance.

Russia is not the problem here; it is the warmongers in the Administration and Congress who never met a good faith attempt at real-world negotiations they did not utterly despise.

The ugly truth of the business is, this money will be earmarked for pre-positioning troops and weapons into Europe, ultimately for a war against Russia.

Why Ramarley Graham’s Parents Just Slept On The DOJ’s Steps

It was still dark in lower Manhattan, a little before 6 a.m. Wednesday, when the parents of Ramarley Graham shook off their sleeping bags and assembled on the steps outside the Department of Justice office of U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara.

Dozens of supporters had joined them for the all-night vigil in honor of the Bronx teen gunned down by NYPD police exactly four years ago. They slept when they could on the cold, brick plaza outside the DOJ building. They sang songs, read poems and talked to reporters.

Then Constance Malcolm and Frank Graham, Ramarley’s parents, stepped up to a podium.

“We want accountability,” Malcolm said. “Preet Bharara, stop dragging your feet!”

“Losing a child is the worst possible thing anything can go through,” Frank Graham said. “You don’t sleep at night and you wonder during the day… You cry yourself to sleep when you do get sleep and you wake up with tears.”

The gunning down of African-American kids with absolute impunity appears to have become the brutal norm for far too many American police departments; this has to change, and it has to stop.

Now.

Already Struggling With Dengue, Hawaii Braces Itself For Zika

The mosquito-borne Zika virus could hit Hawaii especially hard if it arrives in the Aloha State, according to an expert from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

While a widespread outbreak of Zika in the Hawaiian islands remains unlikely at the moment, the state is at higher risk because of its tropical climate and large number of foreign travelers. And many experts are voicing serious concerns about the state’s ability to handle such an event, should it occur.

Hawaii is already battling its largest outbreak of dengue fever since the 1940s, a disease that is carried by the same species of mosquito that carries Zika.

In a December assessment of Hawaii’s response to the current dengue outbreak, Lyle Petersen, director of the CDC’s Division of Vector-Borne Diseases, said there are “critical deficiencies” within the Hawaii Department of Health that should be “urgently addressed.”

Flint Residents Bring Brown Water And Clumps Of Hair To Washington

Gladyes Williamson paced the halls of Congress on Wednesday, armed with a bottle of brown water and clumps of her own hair.

She’d traveled with a group from Flint, Michigan, where high lead levels have made the water irritating to the skin and unsafe to drink since 2014. Williamson trekked 14 hours on a packed bus, with no sleep, to remind Washington of what’s happening in a poor, embattled, industrial town nearly 75 miles north of Detroit.

“Not only do we feel like the Republicans hate us, but now that the Democrats don’t care either,” Williams, 62, told The Huffington Post. “We just need something tangible to make us believe that politicians care about us. The wards in Flint haven’t seen any of this federal aid, but we do all the tax paying and all the dying.”

Williamson is correct in her assessment that neither party really cares about the horrific health damage done to the people of Flint, and beyond, due to the poisoning of American’s water.

And the problem is, even if some state or Federal agency is able to cough up the funds in order to treat the lead poisoning by chelation therapy, or intravenous vitamin C therapy, the damage done to the brains of the kids who have been poisoned is irreversible.

Everyone who signed off on this atrocity should resign their jobs en masse, be tried by a jury of their peers, convicted for reckless public endangerment, and serve hard time in prison.

Unfortunately, setting a very ugly example of what happens to people who do this the only way in which to prevent such morally vile actions from happening in the future.

Two state residents, William Graham and Lawrence Joyce, challenged Cruz’s eligibility with the board, claiming his name should not appear on the March 15 primary ballot because his candidacy did not comply with Article II of the U.S. Constitution.

“Constitution, schmonstitution; we gotta use Cruz to get rid of Trump, so Cruz can lose to Hillary. Got the plan yet?”

Note they did not declare Cruz eligible to be President, only to be on their ballot.

DOCUMENTS REVEAL DRUG FIRMS’ SCHEMES TO MAXIMIZE PROFITS ON CANCER, AIDS AND HEART DRUGS

Two drugmakers have made a practice of buying and then dramatically hiking the prices of low-cost drugs given to patients with life-threatening conditions including heart disease, AIDS and cancer, according to excerpts from thousands of documents released by federal lawmakers.

A congressional review of more than 300,000 pages from Turing Pharmaceuticals and Valeant Pharmaceuticals reveals how executives planned to maximize profits while fending off negative publicity over the price hikes.

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Maryland) released the information Tuesday ahead of a hearing Thursday to examine exorbitant price spikes. Cummings has used his position atop the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform to investigate several companies that have bought previously low-cost drugs and jacked up their prices many times over.

That last statement is pure and utter bovine excrement.

And please; do not expect Congress to actually DO anything about this issue, because their campaign contributions depend so heavily on healthy contributions from the medical/pharmaceutical industrial complex.

This is sound and fury for public consumption, but expect absolutely zero progress in the area of pharmaceutical companies gouging the public with their prices.

And remember; it is entirely possible that your primary care physician is taking kickbacks for prescribing a specific drug for you, particularly if it is an “off book” prescription.

Pfizer, the world’s largest pharmaceutical company, pleaded guilty yesterday and agreed to pay $430 million to resolve criminal and civil charges that it paid doctors to prescribe its epilepsy drug, Neurontin, to patients with ailments that the drug was not federally approved to treat.

I did, personally, get caught up in that last one.

So at this point in my life, I have no difficulty asking a physician if they are being compensated by the drug company which manufactures any medication they are prescribing.

This is a reasonable question, given the current state of health care in this country.

Internet In an Uproar Over Trademark Regulation as Fine Brothers Surrender

Today, of course, the judicial system that has evolved from English common law is celebrated as a mighty achievement of modern civilization. Certainly, in the US, the six million individuals suffering from varying degrees of incarceration – the most anywhere in the world – might differ.

The US in particular has perfected a system of “justice” in which prisoners often find themselves incarcerated in penal institutions operated by for-profit private entities. These entities, in fact, may have contracts with the municipality that demands the town, city or state maintain prisons at a certain level of population.

Perhaps this explains why in the US especially there are so many miscarriages of justice and why DNA testing has led to the release of so many prisoners over the past decade. There have been notable releases of prisoners from death row, especially.

 

 

Secretary of Defense Announces How He’ll Waste $582 Billion

Carter highlighted projects inside the “Strategic Capabilities Office, or SCO for short,” a murky and extremely wasteful corner of the Pentagon where some of our dumbest, most-likely-to-fail projects are born (and often die, at great expense):

This penchant for waste from the DOD is another very intense reason why the US government should not at all be looking at going to war with Russia and/or China.

In Russia and China, when companies make weapons or planes or ships for either country, when these items are field deployed, they operate as advertised, or better, by the companies which make them.

Unfortunately, in the US, due to the incestuous relationship between weapons makers and Congressional representatives who approve of contracts (and are, I imagine, covertly, rewarded by those weapons makers for those contracts), when items are field deployed, they are generally behind schedule, over budget, and do not at all perform as advertised.

Just think about the F-35, for Pete’s sake; I rest my case!!!

 

 

Trump Just Dropped a BOMBSHELL About the Iowa Caucus! (WOW)

Dr. Ben Carson has called into question the unethical moves by Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) and his staff which purposefully told Iowa Caucus attendees that Carson was dropping out.

It was a purposeful lie at a key moment during the Caucus, which pushed Cruz over the top. Cruz has since apologized for his action.

Conservative businessman Donald J. Trump, who came in 2nd place even after skipping the Iowa debate, just went on Twitter and dropped a bombshell: It’s time to cancel the Iowa Caucus results!

This idea has merit, if for no other reason than the Iowa Democratic chair, with 5% of the votes missing, declared Hillary’s .4% “victory” over Bernie Sanders the final official result.

2016 is going to make 2000 like like a pleasant brunch in comparison!

FEDS HELPED HIDE INVESTIGATION INTO BIG BANK’S MONEY LAUNDERING FOR DRUG CARTELS

A federal judge ruled last week that the Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation (HSBC) will be forced to share a report on its business practices with the public — a decision both the bank and the Department of Justice (DOJ) fought in court to prevent. The report is based on the findings of an ongoing government audit of the bank initiated amid revelations in 2012, that it laundered money for drug cartels and terrorist organizations.

When HSBC’s sordid dealings were discovered in 2012, the DOJ declined to press charges, arguing the bank was too important to prosecute. As the Guardian reported at the time, Assistant Attorney General Larry Breuer argued “the Justice Department had looked at the ‘collateral consequences’ to prosecuting the HSBC or taking away its US banking license. Such a move could have cost thousands of jobs, he said.”

Yes, I know I have become cynical; but sometimes, dang it, it’s just hard to keep up with all the shenanigans going on!!

But that’s not all…

According to Dr. Amesh Adalja at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Zika virus may already have infected the emergency blood supply because blood donors are not screened for Zika.

Real threat, or just the current scare tactic to make money on?

 

 

Microsoft To Automatically Install Windows 10 On Older Computers

Windows update will soon start automatically upgrading older machines to Windows 10 if the update is not turned off.

Slash Gear reports:

Not long ago, Microsoft started issuing notifications twice per day, telling users that they should upgrade their system. Apparently that’s not been effective enough, as the company has decided to go ahead and make Windows 10 a “recommended” upgrade, through Windows Update. This means that if you haven’t upgraded yet, you’re going to go ahead and start the process.

 

 

THIS IS WHERE SAN FRANCISCO HAS HID A BUNCH OF THE HOMELESS DURING SUPER BOWL 50

I have already noted that I had heard many of San Francisco’s homeless were moved from the Enbarcadero area, where Super Bowl City has been set up, into tents under the Bay Bridge.

ABC7 News has found them and tweeted out the above picture.??

As a native San Franciscan, this absolutely breaks my heart.

Will SOMEBODY, please, cough up the airfare to send Mayor Ed Lee to Salt Lake City, where the city officials have almost completely ended homelessness by providing shelter and counseling to their people, because they found it was cheaper in the long run, than stays in hospitals and prisons?!?

Stupidity and ignorance …. should be painful; unfortunately, they are not.

 

 

New Law In London Would Fine Homeless £1,000 For Sleeping Outside Or “Loitering”

The homeless people in Hackney, London are facing expulsion from the street due to a new law will allow the police to give out fines and other legal penalties to homeless people who are found loitering, begging and sleeping in commercial places.

This “Public Space Protection Order” which was introduced by the council of Hackney will place a fine of £1000 on homeless activities. The order has been met with numerous criticisms, with many pointing out that the new laws effectively outlaw homelessness…

Webmaster addition: If the homeless had £1,000 they would not be sleeping in the streets! So what will happen is they will be arrested and thrown in prison for not paying thew fine … which gives them a bed, a roof, and three meals a day. So why not just give the homeless a bed, a roof, and three meals a day and save all the legal costs?

A U.S. diplomat said on Wednesday that the U.S. was open to the possibility of joint naval patrols with the Philippines in the South China Sea aiming to continue to exercise “freedom of navigation” in the disputed waters. Philippines has asked the U.S. to patrol the area together after China began test flights from Fiery Cross Reef an artificial islands where Beijing has built airfields. “We do discuss that principle (joint patrols) with the Philippines and so I am not discarding that possibility,” U.S. Ambassador in Philippines Philip Goldberg told reporters.

Want Endless War? Love the U.S. Empire? Well, Hillary Clinton’s Your Choice

Hillary Clinton likes to extol her foreign policy credentials, particularly her experience as secretary of state. She attaches herself to Barack Obama’s coattails, pledging to continue his policies. But she is even more hawkish than the president.

Like Obama, Clinton touts American exceptionalism, the notion that the United States is better than any other country. In his State of the Union addresses, Obama has proclaimed America “exceptional” and said the U.S. must “lead the world.” Clinton wrote in her book “Hard Choices” that “America remains the ‘indispensable nation.’ ”

Oman has supported the initiative to hold the next ministerial meeting of the Strategic Dialogue between Russia and the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) in Moscow in spring, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday following working visit of Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov to Oman.

FEDS HELPED HIDE INVESTIGATION INTO BIG BANK’S MONEY LAUNDERING FOR DRUG CARTELS

A federal judge ruled last week that the Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation (HSBC) will be forced to share a report on its business practices with the public — a decision both the bank and the Department of Justice (DOJ) fought in court to prevent. The report is based on the findings of an ongoing government audit of the bank initiated amid revelations in 2012, that it laundered money for drug cartels and terrorist organizations.

 

 

Iowa’s nightmare revisited: Was correct winner called?

It’s Iowa’s nightmare scenario revisited: An extraordinarily close count in the Iowa caucuses — and reports of chaos in precincts, website glitches and coin flips to decide county delegates — are raising questions about accuracy of the count and winner.

This time it’s the Democrats, not the Republicans.

Even as Hillary Clinton trumpeted her Iowa win in New Hampshire on Tuesday, aides for Bernie Sanders said the eyelash-thin margin raised questions and called for a review. The chairwoman of the Iowa Democratic Party rejected that notion, saying the results are final.

5% of the vote missing, and the chairwoman of the Iowa Democrats declares Hillary’s .2% victory final?

We all know Hillary is a totally ruthless human being who cares not for the law, the Constitution, or the people, but it says something about the American charcter that she has attracted so many supporters who know exactly what Hillary is and has done, but don’t care, so long as they get a “Woman in the White House!”

 

 

JUDGE CONVICTED AFTER HE ADMITTED TO TORTURING MAN IN COURT WITH 50,000 VOLTS TO SHUT HIM UP

A man representing himself in a Maryland court was shocked with 50,000 volts of electricity by the judge because he continued to speak when the judge ordered him to stop. Judge Robert Nalley pleaded guilty on Monday to depriving the defendant of his civil rights. The charge stems from an encounter between the judge and victim Delvon King in July of 2014, when King was appearing before Judge Nalley to face gun charges. King had a shocker anklet attached to him, which was supposed to be used in case of an emergency situation, or if King were to attempt to escape or hurt anyone.

RUSSIAN GEOPOLITICIAN: TRUMP IS REAL AMERICA

This week, America starts primaries season.

If it wasn’t for Donald Trump, it would be quite ordinary and without any surprises, even dull. He is, no doubt, the sensation of the elections. Donald Trump, of course, is more interesting then Obama. To choose a black Muslim democrat to conduct policies, who is not a whit different from the white protestant fundamentalist-republican candidate, is a real PR success. But it is impossible to repeat such steps again; the democrats have presented the quite annoying Hilary. In fact, she would be first woman-president, since gender is a trend, but, anyway, it not that impressive.

John Kerry Hopes to Become US President if Hillary Clinton Arrested – Trump

US Secretary of State John Kerry believes he can run for US president if Hillary Clinton is forced to withdraw from the race or is jailed for breaking security procedures, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump told a rally in Milford, New Hampshire.

Hillary should have been arrested already for her June 17, 2011 email instructing Jacob Sullivan to strip the classification markings from a document and send it non-secure. It doesn’t matter by how much the document was classified or whether Sullivan actually did it or not; the issuing of the order itself by Hillary is a violation of Title 18, Section 793, and is a FELONY!

Why hasn’t Hillary been arrested and charged for this crime?

Everyone Lied About Flint’s Water: An Insider’s Story

How the hell can something like this happen in America? Well, last year the city of Flint switched their water source from Lake Huron to the Flint River in a bid to save money. After the switch, they stopped adding orthophosphate — a chemical that stops lead and iron pipes from rotting away into the water supply. It made a difference: Six months after the water source switch, the local GM plant stopped using Flint water because it was so corrosive, it was harmful to their engine parts.

“How was your water? Was it clean?” Gov Snyder Chased Out Of Restaurant By Angry Residents

Governor Rick Snyder is surely one of the most hated people in Flint, if not the entire state of Michigan, and it is a surprise that he can actually go out anywhere in public without being heckled. In fact, there was just an incident reported last week where he was chased out of a restaurant with residents who were angry about the part he played in the city’s current water crisis.

At the Old Town Tavern on Liberty Street, which is just down the street from the governor’s new condo, Snyder was unable to finish his meal because of his public infamy.

According to Ann Arbor resident, Laura Tanner, someone in the restaurant yelled “Snyder, you f*** up!” which alerted everyone else in the bar that the governor was there…

 

 

Europe in difficult position due to poor protection of outer boundaries — German official

According to the official, the German government is obliged to cut refugee flows under the German constitution. If it fails, the authorities will face a lawsuit at the Federal Constitutional Court of Germany. About 1.1 million asylum seekers arrived in Germany in 2015… Earlier, Udo Di Fabio, a former judge of the Federal Constitutional Court of Germany, concluded that Berlin was violating constitutional norms by allowing unlimited numbers of refugees to enter the country. According to him, the best thing under the current circumstances would be to shut the borders legally and restrict the number of migrants. Seehofer said the global community currently has to address such tasks as the migration crisis and counteraction to terrorism. “I am convinced that these challenges require joint action. And without Russia this is impossible.

The move comes in retaliation for the recent US expansion of the so-called Magnitsky list of sanctions against Russian officials. The Russian blacklist includes former US attorney general Alberto Gonzales, former US undersecretary of defense Douglas Feith, former senior counsel at the CIA John Rizzo, former assistant attorney general Jay Scott Bybee and former general counsel of the department of defense William James Haynes II. Russia’s Foreign Ministry said the expansion of the Magnitsky list that has been used for “groundless accusations against Russian officials” is dealing another blow to bilateral ties.

Senior Russian legislator: US uses UN, Security Council for propaganda

“The United Nations and the UN Security Council still remain optional agencies in the US scheme of things. The US turns to them exclusively in cases when they can be used for propaganda purposes,” Klishas wrote in his blog on the official website of the upper house of parliament. “Possibly, the United States may soon start bombing other counties and will not even bother to explain the reasons behind its actions or provide some grounds for its own policies,” Klishas said. He also pointed to the Western countries’ refusal to provide any proof of their speculations as a new trend in public behavior. “Denying for no apparent reason the hard facts, such as oil caravans towards Turkey from Syria or refusing to provide any proof to back up their speculations is a new style of civilized Western countries’ policies in communicating with the mass media, the public in their countries and the whole world,” he said.

 

 

Hacking Democracy – Full Length Documentary!

The disturbingly shocking HBO documentary HACKING DEMOCRACY bravely tangles with our nation’s ills at the heart of democracy. The film the Diebold corporation doesn’t want you to see, this revelatory journey follows tenacious Seattle grandmother Bev Harris and her band of extraordinary citizen-activists as they set out to ask one simple question: How does America count its votes? From Florida and California to Ohio and Washington State, filmmakers Simon Ardizzone, Robert Cohen, and Russell Michaels starkly reveal a broken system riddled with secrecy, incompetent election officials, and electronic voting machines that can be programmed to steal elections. Equipped only with a powerful sense of righteous outrage, the activists take on voting machine industry, exposing alarming security holes in America’s trusted voting machines. They even go dumpster diving at a county election official’s office in Florida, uncovering incendiary evidence of miscounted votes.

Foreigners leaving government is a negative signal for Poroshenko from West — expert

The decision of Ukraine’s Minister of Economy and Trade Aivaras Abromavicius to leave his post is a sign of a conflict with Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko, and a signal from the West about the deterioration of relations, Andrei Zolotarev head of the Kiev-based analytical Third Sector Centre, said Wednesday… The Ukrainian government has several foreign nationals holding the posts of ministers. Before his appointment, Abromavicius was a Lithuanian businessman. Ukraine’s Minister of Healthcare Alexander Kvitashvili is from Georgia, who had also tried to resign earlier, but the Verkhovna Rada did not support his decision.

Moscow Accuses UK of Spreading Misinformation on Russia’s Role in Syria

Moscow believes statements made by British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond on Russia and Iran’s alleged interference in settling the Syrian crisis to be “a dangerous gambit,” Russia’s Govorit Moskva radio station quoted Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova as saying Tuesday, Sputnik reported. Hammond earlier said that Russia’s actions in Syria were strengthening the positions of the ISIL, which is prohibited in numerous countries including Russia and the United States, because Russia says it wants to destroy the ISIL, but is not bombing the terrorist group and bombing the moderate opposition. Zakharova said this was “a dangerous gambit of misinformation.”

A shocking video of a group of migrant men attacking two pensioners who allegedly stopped them from groping a young woman on the subway in Munich has sparked a police hunt.

The second elderly victim can be seen grappling with one of the gang, before he is held up by the neck and threatened.

Al-Dokhan tower was reportedly destroyed in the Yemeni missile attacks in Jizan as eyewitnesses said that they had seen smoke rising from it. The Yemeni army and popular forces regained control of Al-Khurma region in Asir province after they destroyed two arms depots and other military hardware of the Yemeni forces in the region. Meantime, the Yemeni army’s artillery units pounded Malhama military base in Jizan province. The Saudi troops started fleeing their base as soon as they came under the missile attack.

Why civil liberties are no longer defended

When looking back from the perspective of the 1800’s America, the experience in the 20th and certainly the 21th centuries, has been a consistent and total repudiation of the underpinnings of civil liberties. With the widespread rejection of natural law, the secular humanism of the worldly culture has replaced the time tested and well-grounded principles that are the basis of Western Civilization.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!

“The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered as the palladium of the liberties of a republic; since it offers a strong moral check against usurpation and arbitrary power of rulers; and will generally, even if these are successful in the first instance, enable the people to resist and triumph over them.” — Supreme Court Justice Joseph Story of the John Marshall Court

Terrorists Fleeing to Turkey as Army Advances in Aleppo Province

Hundreds of Takfiri terrorists are trying to cross the border to Turkey after losing vast grounds and dozens of their friends in the Syrian army’s massive operations in Northern Aleppo province.

Revealed: John Kerry Sent Hillary a ‘SECRET’ Email From His iPad in 2011

Secretary of State John Kerry has been conspicuously quiet about his predecessor’s email controversy, and perhaps now we know why.

One of the emails that the State Department released on Friday was sent by Kerry—from his iPad—to then-Sec. Clinton, and it has been determined that that email contained classified information.

This isn’t the first time an email from Kerry has been found on her server—previous email releases have shown that she and her staff communicated with him on a number of occasions when he was a senator—but this is the first email that has been classified as “Secret.”

TPP ‘fundamentally flawed,’ should be resisted – UN human rights expert

Nuclear Deterrence: Giving Common Sense a Bad Name

Our views on nuclear weapons run the gauntlet from guarantor of our national security to theater of the absurd. Those partial to the former paint nuclear weapons as not a weapons system, but a threat that’s not even brandished, but sits on the shelf: “our nuclear deterrent.” To most, the concept of deterrence makes perfect sense. Even a child instinctively understands the basic principle: you need something to brandish in a bully’s face to make him back off.

NEW APP TO SEARCH THE WEB FOR ANTI-SEMITISM (OR CREATE IT WHEN NECESSARY)

The World Zionist Organization (WZO) is expected to launch its Sniper app, which it says is a search engine for anti-Semitic content.

The Sniper system is set up to scan the internet using an algorithm that will identify certain keywords in different languages. A crew of WZO members will scan the results, confirm the cases that actually show real anti-Semitism, and respond with direct replies or contact authorities in the offending party’s country.

WZO emphasizes the fact that the app will be monitored and supervised, so that its use will be proper, and not aimed at shaming individuals or groups without proper evidence.

Of the 28 major brands questioned by the Business and Human Rights Resource Centre (BHRCC) about conditions at their supplier factories in Turkey and the potential exploitation of undocumented Syrian children and adults, only H&M and Next confessed to finding children working in the factories.

The Last 16 Times This Happened There Was A Recession…

Something has just happened that has signaled a recession every single time that it has occurred since World War I. 16 times since 1919 there have been at least 8 month-over-month declines in industrial production during the preceding 12 month period, and in each of those 16 instances the U.S. economy has plunged into recession. Now that it has happened again, will the U.S. economy beat the odds and avoid a major economic downturn? I certainly wouldn’t count on it. As I have written about repeatedly, there are a whole host of other numbers that are screaming that a new recession is here, and global financial markets are crumbling. It would take a miracle of epic proportions to pull us out of this tailspin, and yet there are many people out there that are absolutely convinced that it will happen.

 

 

Bernie Sanders hopes for ‘honest’ count of missing precincts

As of early Tuesday morning, Iowa’s Democratic Party reported Clinton having 49.9 of the vote and Sanders receiving 49.6 percent. Despite 1 percent of the precincts still missing, Clinton’s press secretary claimed victory.

Concern about voter fraud was raised late Monday night when C-Span posted video that showed a Polk County caucus chair and Clinton precinct captain did not conduct an actual count of the caucusgoers. Results were also slow to come in with about 5 percent of the precincts (roughly 90 precincts) going unreported at the time that Clinton and Sanders addressed their supporters late Monday night.

On a charter flight to New Hampshire, Sanders had no answers as to what happened with the count.

“Your guess is as good as mine as to what happened,” said Sanders. “I can only hope and expect the count will be honest.”

 

 

A Detailed Look at The New York Times’ Embarrassing, Deceitful and Illogical Endorsement of Hillary Clinton

In its endorsement of Hillary, the New York Times editorial board did such a sloppy job I can’t help but think it may have done permanent damage to its brand. Upon reading it, my initial conclusion was that the editorial board was either suffering from Stockholm syndrome or merely concerned about losing advertising revenues should they endorse Sanders. Then I thought some more and I realized my initial conclusions were wrong. Something else is going on here, something far more subtle, subconscious and illuminating. The New York Times is defending the establishment candidate simply because the New York Times is the establishment.

House panel opens new inquiry into Clinton’s email server

A second congressional committee has launched an investigation into the security of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email server.

House Science, Space and Technology Committee Chairman Lamar Smith (R-Texas) sent letters this week to four companies that played roles in maintaining and protecting the server.

“Understanding these companies’ roles in providing software and services to maintain former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email server is critical to improving government cybersecurity standards,” Smith said in a statement.

FLASHBACK – Ex-Pentagon chief: Iran, China or Russia may have gotten to Clinton server

Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates says he believes foreign countries like Russia, China and Iran may have hacked the private email server Hillary Clinton used while secretary of State.

“Given the fact that the Pentagon acknowledges that they get attacked about 100,000 times a day, I think the odds are pretty high,” he said Thursday during an interview on “The Hugh Hewitt Show.”

Gates said he agreed with former acting CIA Director Mike Morell’s claim that the server had probably been hacked by either Russia, China or Iran.

Or Russia, China and Iran made a “donation” to the Clinton “Charitable” Foundation and got the password!

Are You Aware Of Big Pharma’s Impressive Records?

Everyone probably is familiar with the world population growth clock. Likewise, there’s the time-bomb-like clockwork for the United States national debt. But has anyone ever imagined what a clock would be like that ticks off Big Pharma’s impressive records?

Such a clock would not tick off Big Pharma’s earnings or profits, though. Much to everyone’s probable utter shock, a ‘clock’ has been developed and posted online titled “Pharma Death Clock”, which lists “Total deaths in the United States since January 1, 2000…Big Pharma’s chemical warfare on humanity dwarfs the number of victims killed by all world wars and acts of terrorism combined… While drug companies profit billions, people are dying by the millions.”

Ted Cruz is not eligible to be President of the United States; The meaning of “Natural Born.”

Ted Cruz is ineligible to run for President of the United States. He was born in Canada, of parents who were Canadian citizens at the time of his birth. Cruz’s mother claims to have been born in Delaware. The State of Delaware claims not to have any records of her. (The authenticity of the Birth Certificate provided by the Cruz campaign is now in dispute.) But even if genuine, it makes Cruz a US citizen, but not “Natural Born.”

Ted Cruz’s supporters try to get around “Natural Born” by claiming it simply means any US citizen, an opinion even echoed at Wikipedia!

But if any US citizen could be President, then the qualifier “Natural Born” would not be needed (and is not present in the Constitutional citizenship requirements for Representatives and Senators). Clearly, to the Founding Fathers, “Natural Born” had a specific and obvious meaning, applied exclusively to the Presidency!

Ukraine Finds a Russian Conspiracy at UK’s ‘The Independent’

The coup regime has adopted an Orwellian Newspeak term to represent the supposed “Russian aggression” against the country, though there is an almost total lack of objective evidence of such aggression. That term is hybrid war.

John Cleese: Political Correctness Will Lead To An Orwellian Nightmare

John Cleese says political correctness has gone too far, especially on America’s college campuses, where he will no longer go to perform. As BigThink reports, the very essence of his trade — comedy — is criticism and that not infrequently means hurt feelings. But protecting everyone from negative emotion all the time is not only impractical (one can’t control the feelings of another), but also improper in a free society.

Cleese, having worked with psychiatrist Robin Skynner, says there may even be something more sinister behind the insistence to be always be politically correct.

“If you start to say we mustn’t, we mustn’t criticize or offend them then humor is gone. With humor goes a sense of proportion. And then as far as I’m concerned you’re living in 1984.”

Cleese lampooned political correctness in “Life of Brian.”

Hillary Clinton is a funny duck. On CBS This Morning she said that “anyone who knows me knows that I am not in the pocket of anyone”. Her statement immediately caused the CBS panel to break into laughter while she was still speaking. Funnier still is the fact that last month she and her super-PAC happily accepted $6 million from former Nazi collaborator George Soros. Hmm, not in anyone’s pocket, eh?

 

 

Western criticism of Russian operations in Syria is groundless – Moscow

Moscow is used to “unsubstantiated claims” coming from Western capitals, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has said in a strong response to his British counterpart’s statement that Russia is undermining international peace efforts in Syria.

“Concerning the statements from London and other Western capitals claiming that our Air Force operations in Syria are not contributing to the resolution of the conflict – we are used to such statements. They are completely groundless,” Lavrov said following a meeting with United Arab Emirates Foreign Minister Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan on Tuesday.

Such statements “reflect the anxiety of our Western partners that our Air Force is operating effectively in Syrian airspace,” he added.

Voter Fraud and ‘Missing’ Precincts: How Clinton Stole Iowa

Results from 90 precincts are missing? Wasn’t that Microsoft app supposed to send all that data direct to the tabulation center? Were they running that thing on Windows 10? Vista? ME?

Anyone want to bet those 90 missing precincts favored Sanders?

Meltdown America, abandoned: Inside the eerie NASA base sitting empty for a decade after 57 years of rocket tests and the country’s worst nuclear explosion

It is an enormous 2,850-acre site, 30 miles from downtown Los Angeles, that was once a top-secret NASA lab.

Santa Susana Field Laboratory now stands unused and frozen in time, slowly rusting and decaying in the elements.

Despite being abandoned for the best part of a decade, the colossal structure still towers over the skyline.

The enormous station, which still has 24-hour surveillance and security, was opened on a craggy plateau in easternmost Ventura County in 1948.

In 1959, it was home to America’s first and worst nuclear disaster.

The ground underneath the facility is loaded with toxic waste and radioactivity, and it sits only a few miles away from the leaking gas field!

“As a footnote, and as a precondition of her release, Shawna Cox was ordered to have all guns at her Utah home removed. After the guns were removed, her son-in-law, sitting in close proximity to the guns was suddenly and mysteriously caught in a fire in which all the guns and ammunition went up in smoke. Shawna’s son-in-law was killed in the event.”

This melded nicely with what I was learning about the CDC’s little-known Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS). Right off the top, I can tell you they create disinformation on a scale that must make the CIA jealous…

Jewish settlement firm accused of forging ’14 out of 15′ West Bank land deals

An Israeli pro-settlement company has been accused of forging acquisitions relating to more than a dozen real estate deals in the West Bank. A Channel 10 program alleged that 14 of 15 land deals police examined were fraudulent.

The Israeli authorities have been trying to clear illegal Jewish outposts from the Binyamin region of the West Bank. These include settlements such as Migron and Givat Asaf, which have proved to be flashpoints between pro-Israeli settlers and Palestinians.

An investigative report by Channel 10, as cited by Haaretz claimed that officials from Al-Watan, a company run by Zeev Hever, who has been a key figure in the Israeli settlement movement, were responsible for the forged deals.

In 2012, the Food and Drug Administration banned the use of Bisphenol A (BPA) in baby bottles, sippy cups, and infant formula packaging. Manufacturers had already dropped the use of BPA after studies linked it to early puberty and a rise in breast and prostate cancers. “BPA-free” became all the rage, but even in 2014, there were hints that BPA alternatives were not as safe as presumed. Anew study by UCLA researchers is adding to the evidence that BPS—the most common alternative—is most likely no safer than BPA.

However, there is a bit more to it than that, because the Saudi coalition has employed hundreds of mercenaries from South America (mainly Colombians) and Africa. And these people are being led by mercenaries from Academi, formerly known as Xe, which was formerly known as Blackwater.

Obedience Training: The Truth about the Pledge of Allegiance

A look into the origins of the pledge of allegiance – mandatory regurgitation for school children – reveals that it was actually created by a magazine in 1892 in order to sell flags to schools, and the pledge was created by Francis Bellamy to create a reason for schools to buy the flags.

In turn, this social ritual creates cohesion and unity in the mind of the public with the federal government.

Until it was changed in the 1940s, the salute was actually a military salute wherein children then “hailed” the flag in a fashion very similar to what was done in Nazi Germany.

How can I say this with such conviction? Well, if we look at the actual numbers, not the propaganda paraded as truth through the mainstream media, we begin to see just how bad it really is.

Feds tell Texas ranchers the government owns their land despite owners having deeds, paying property taxes on the land

A group of Texas ranchers are furious after representatives from the federal Bureau of Land Management made claims that their land doesn’t actually belong to the ranchers, but rather it belonged to the federal government. The federal officials claim that despite each rancher having a deed for their property and having paid property taxes on the land each year, the land should never have been sold, as it is actually federal land. However, at least one rancher, Ken Aderholt, isn’t giving up his property without a fight. Aderholt notes that his family has lived and raised cattle on the land for the past 70 years, even building a home on the property that the government now claims it owns.

Under the Constitution, the Federal Government is only allowed to own the land under Federal Buildings, and Federal infrastructure such as harbors, airports, and military bases. The Founding Fathers included that Enclave Clause to prevent the government from “solving” its self-made economic problems by plundering the property of the people.

As a global boycott movement against Israeli universities gains steam, Israeli professors say they are feeling the pressure from counterparts in other countries

As a global boycott movement against Israeli universities gains steam, Israeli professors say they are feeling the pressure from their colleagues overseas. Although the movement ostensibly targets universities, not individuals, Israeli academics say they are often shunned at the personal level. They experience snubs at academic conferences, struggle to get recommendations and can experience difficulty publishing their work in professional journals.

 

 

Global stocks snap winning streak as oil pressure returns

Oil LCOc1 struggled to steady, having fallen as much as 7 percent on Monday, and the glum macro mood sweeping back though markets saw European shares .FTEU3 follow Asia .MIAPJ0000PUS deep into the red.

Britain’s FTSE 100 .FTSE, Germany’s DAX .GDAXI and France’s CAC 40 .FCHI were down 1.4-1.7 percent as BP’s biggest loss in 20 years and plans to cut thousands more jobs dovetailed with rating cuts by S&P for Shell and BHP Billiton to underscore commodity woes.

The Rise of ISIS and Other Extremist Groups: the role of the West and Regional Powers

by Dr. Bouthaina Shaaban (Political and Media Advisor at the Syrian Presidency).

This essay examines the role of Western and regional players (i.e. Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar) in inflaming the conflict and the growth of terrorism in Syria.

It examines the attempts to break up Syria’s civilian and military institutions, the delegitimization of the Syrian government, the attempts to procure a UN mandate for a military intervention in Syria, the imposition of suffocating economic sanctions on Syria, and most importantly the support that Western and regional powers gave to a plethora of armed groups, including al-Qaeda and ISIS, to fight the Syrian government.

Flashback: WRH Reader Letters 03/11/2004

And the beat goes on. The media talks about the abortion issue, they talk about the percentage of Jews and Blacks who voted for each candidate, about gay-marriage and on and on and on…………

But they sure aren’t talking about the exit polls, or the way Bush’s tallies spiked upwards whereever the Diebold machines were used. They don’t talk about Kerry’s sudden decision to not pursue the issues and fight for a proper accounting. They don’t talk about the problems that have arisen from electronic voting.

They don’t talk about ELECTION FRAUD. Shuffle, shuffle, shuffle it goes–waaaay under the rug. Hush peons. We just don’t discuss such things. Why look at your newly “chosen” leader! Why don’t they tell us who really chose him? It sure as hell wasn’t us.

 

 

Flashback: Powerful Government Accountability Office report confirms key 2004 stolen election findings

As a legal noose appears to be tightening around the Bush/Cheney/Rove inner circle, a shocking government report shows the floor under the legitimacy of their alleged election to the White House is crumbling.

The latest critical confirmation of key indicators that the election of 2004 was stolen comes in an extremely powerful, penetrating report from the Government Accountability Office that has gotten virtually no mainstream media coverage. Click here for GAO Report

The government’s lead investigative agency is known for its general incorruptibility and its thorough, in-depth analyses. Its concurrence with assertions widely dismissed as “conspiracy theories” adds crucial new weight to the case that Team Bush has no legitimate business being in the White House.

Matt Simmons On The L.A. Methane Leak

With the ongoing methane leak in Porter Ranch California getting worse, I thought of what Matt Simmons might have said if he were still alive. So I dug out one of his last interviews he did right before he died that was about the BP oil spill. He speaks about the dangers of the massive amounts of methane that was leaking from the Macondo oil well in the gulf of Mexico. His warnings are appropriate for the situation going on in California today.

The Pacific Patriots Network, which is protesting the death of Robert “Lavoy” Finicum last week and the armed federal response to the occupation of the Malheur Wildlife Refuge, staged a rally Saturday followed by a memorial service Sunday for Finicum. Another rally is scheduled for Monday.

Dear Mr Putin, Please Save Us From Wall Street.

Dear Mr Putin, It is customary to say I hope this finds you in good heath when we address a Head of State in an open letter. But America and its NATO partners are the sick ones. We are in terrible economic, social and political health. Our press and our political leaders lie to us. They rob us and demand we believe their lies. Thirty years ago a man whose family had farmed their land for generations was told by the federal government that they needed his farm where he had been growing onions. Their land was seized for pennies on the dollar. Today a giant agricultural corporation is raising onions which was the same crop he and his family had been raising.

Last year police seized more assets from American citizens than did all the burglars, muggers and armed robbers. And our police killed more innocent civilians than did terrorists and crazed mass shooters.

 

 

The Federal Reserve’s ‘Uh Oh’ moment has already arrived

The Federal Reserve seems to have been caught off-guard by the recent turmoil on the markets. As the Chinese economic growth seems to be slowing down, all of the Western central banks need to re-think their plans, and the Federal Reserve will have to kneel in the dust.

Whereas just a few weeks ago, the Fed ‘promised’ the markets it would increase the interest rates 4 times in just twelve months, the central bank is already reneging on its promise as it no longer thinks it will be able to do so without completely suffocating the economy. As we explained in a previous column, the use of some specific words when the original rate hike was announced indicated to us the Fed was actually anticipating the markets might not be ready for more rate hikes just yet.

 

 

Syrian opposition says government must implement goodwill measures within days

A Syrian opposition official said on Monday the government must within a few days state its readiness to implement goodwill measures on the ground, accusing the U.N. peace envoy of overstepping the mark by declaring the start of peace talks.

The Syrian opposition has travelled to Geneva, where peace talks to end the country’s five year old conflict began on Friday, but has repeatedly said it will not enter negotiations without humanitarian measures, such as the lifting of sieges, being implemented first.

Monzer Makhous, an official from the Syrian opposition’s High Negotiations Committee, told Arabic news channel Al Arabiya: “The Syrian regime must state directly, frankly and without ambiguity that it is ready to implement (United Nations) Articles 12 and 13 immediately, and it must not take more than a few days.”

“If not, the High Negotiations Committee will not take part in any other process,” Monzer said.

The government investigated accusations that the company manufactured a defective product that did not meet the standard for the Sears DieHard brand of batteries. The case grew out of earlier investigations of accusations that Exide, the largest maker of automotive batteries, conspired with Sears to sell used batteries as new, and former Exide officials paid bribes to conceal the fraud.

Russia military censures Turkey over ‘premeditated provocation’

“The hysteria launched by the Turkish side, that we define as unsubstantiated propaganda, looks pretty much like a premeditated provocation,” Major General Igor Konashenkov said in a statement on Monday.

In the statement Konashenkov said Russia’s military, instead, had in possession a video which showed “a Turkish artillery battery shelling a Syrian frontier village”.

 

 

Why Hillary’s EmailGate Matters

Every few days, another bombshell appears in the media illustrating just how poorly Hillary Clinton, during her tenure as our nation’s foreign policy boss, handled communications security. By now, we have a complex portrait of someone whose mishandling of our nation’s secrets, by herself and her staff, beggars belief for anyone versed in such matters. EmailGate isn’t going away, no matter how much Ms. Clinton’s supporters want it to.

Over the last few days, whenever I try to comment about the question of Hillary spying to any media that uses Facebook for comments, the comment is blocked and the error message simply says “Oops!”

Is Facebook trying to protect Hillary from an espionage charge?

Please copy the below and comment it into every story you see about the emails!

Remember China-gate from 1996? Then President Bill Clinton authorized the sale of sensitive US technology to China and Chinese money was donated to his re-election campaign!

Was Hillary playing the same game, selling US secrets delivered via a private server with weaker security than the Ashley Madison website in exchange for “donations” to her “charitable” foundation?

It is time to look past the server itself to what may be the biggest spy scandal in US history!

Oliver The Final Secret Of Pearl Harbor

I thought that I had disclosed in *America’s Decline*, the ultimate secret of
Pearl Harbor, the fact that the unspeakably foul energumenon called Franklin
Roosevelt, in January 1941, almost a full year before the attack on Pearl
Harbor, had incited the Japanese by informing “in strict confidence” the
Portuguese Ambassador that his countrymen need not be concerned about their
colonies in the Orient because the United States was going to attack Japan when
her military forces were extended to the limit and most vulnerable, and would
thus destroy Japan. The Ambassador naturally cabled the good news to his
government in his most secret code, which the Japanese had compromised and were
reading currently. And the success of the diseased monster’s scheme was attested
a few days later when the Portuguese message was quoted in Japanese diplomatic
messages that American cryptanalysts were reading. (1) The Japanese were thus

NYPD TRIPLES THE STRENGTH OF THEIR PEPPER SPRAY BECAUSE THE OLD STUFF DIDN’T HURT ENOUGH

Only in the twisted minds of NYPD officials would “more powerful weapons” be a solution to prevent their officers from killing people. Sadly, this is no joke. The NYPD recently announced that they are planning to stock more powerful and potent pepper spray, and they actually claim that this would be intended to prevent police from shooting people. The potency that has been used by the NYPD and other departments previously is already highly dangerous with a concentration of just .21% capsaicinoids. The new spray will be concentrated at .67% which will undoubtedly be more dangerous and far more painful. The NYPD has already begun rolling out the new concentration and has equipped over 19,000 officers with the new mixture.

A Special Report on the SoCalGas Natural Gas Leak at Aliso Canyon

The Aliso Canyon gas leak (also called Porter Ranch gas leak) is a massive, uncontrolled, ongoing leak from a natural gas well connected to the Aliso Canyon underground storage facility near Porter Ranch, Los Angeles, California since October 23, 2015. The second largest gas storage facility of its kind in the United States belongs to the Southern California Gas Company, a subsidiary of Sempra Energy. On January 6, 2016, Governor Jerry Brown issued a state of emergency.[1]

Just like the BP Gulf oil spill, this disaster has made the nation aware that gas leaks are far more common than otherwise known.

The reasoning the State is giving for the closure of this vital pass is because of Mother Earth’s natural erosion. The only way for the County to agree to steal the land and shut down the economy as well as the Freedoms for the people who access it is the root of all evil, and that is Money.

 

 

Lugar Bio Laboratory in Tbilisi Latest: It’s Getting Worse by the Day

Today people are getting sick with Swine Flu and Zika all over the world, with Ebola hanging back while we await the next outbreak. Diseases occur naturally, but since World War II governments have spent billions weaponising different viruses to be used alongside the usual crop of diseases, the old bacterial standbys like anthrax or smallpox and train loads of poison gas.

A bio-chemical warfare “medical research” facility, like the one in Tbilisi, is almost exactly the same as a fully-fledged bio-chemical warfare production facility. All that would be required is to use one portion of a research facility for this purpose, maybe a few secret labs and underground or outbuilding production facilities which are easy to hide. How you tell one from the other is by examining the plans, the security protocols and the budget. You then look at the management of the facility, its history and examine what diseases it “researches.”

Pentagon insists Russia violated Turkish airspace, calls for calm on both sides

Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Major General Igor Konashenkov said in a statement Saturday that Ankara’s allegations are “proof-less propaganda,” explaining that Turkish airspace controlling radar stations can only determine the altitude, flight line, and speed of an aerial vehicle, but not its type or state affiliation.

To determine the national identity of a warplane (flying combat missions with its transponder turned off) requires the establishment of visual contact from another aircraft, Konashenkov stressed, adding that no visual contact with the Su-34 had been reported. Neither Russia’s air defense systems in Syria, nor Syria’s airspace controlling radar stations, had recorded any violations of the air border between Syria and Turkey, Konashenkov emphasized.

Argentine Social Movements Strike Back Against Monsanto

The world’s largest GMO corporation never imagined that it would suffer one of its major setbacks in a small, rural town in central Argentina.

Popular opposition, irregularities in the company’s environmental impact assessment, a protest blockade at the entry gate, and a court ruling stalled the construction of its seeds plant three years ago.

The most recent blow to the corporation occurred when it made a new attempt to enter the site in the municipality of Malvinas Argentinas, in the province of Cordoba. Protesters received an eviction notice, but local socio-environmental assemblies mobilized to strengthen the blockade, and a prosecutor suspended the order.

On Jan. 8 simultaneous marches were held in different cities across Argentina. The demand was one and the same: “Monsanto, get out of Latin America!”

Primary election rigging in the coming weeks and months is all but assured if American voters and candidates don’t take steps to prevent it now. Evidence that US voting systems are wide open to fraud and manipulation should be taken seriously in light of the unprecedented high-stakes elections we’re facing.

Not in recent history have American voters been presented with such radically polarized candidates, forcing a crucial choice for the direction of our future, and possibly upending long-established centers of power.

It’s no secret that US primaries have been tightly controlled by the two ruling parties, usually to the benefit of their favored candidates. If this internal manipulation (some might call it rigging) is not publicly condoned, neither is it loudly condemned.

Zika? Monsanto’s Roundup associated with smaller heads

This is my fourth article on the Zika scam. A virus is being blamed for destruction that actually comes from other forces.

In a previous piece, I listed the top six causes for what is happening in the center of the storm, Brazil, where babies are being born with smaller heads (microcephaly) and brain damage. One of those causes is pesticides/herbicides.

Here I’m presenting information from an animal study that implicates glyphosate, the central ingredient in Monsanto’s herbicide, Roundup, in microcephaly and cranial malformations.

One of authors of this study is the late Argentine researcher, Andres Carrasco, who was subjected to scientific censorship and threats during his career.

George Soros, Haim Saban give $12 million to Clinton campaign

Soros has now provided a total of $7 million in this election cycle to Priorities USA Action, a super-PAC which raised $41 million on behalf of Clinton in 2015, according to the committee’s statement issued on Sunday.

The super-PAC raised $25.3 million during the last 6 months, and Soros’s contribution accounted for almost a quarter of its funding haul.

Haim Saban, an Israeli-American media tycoon, and his wife Cheryl have contributed a total of $5 million to Clinton’s super-PAC.

Clinton has written a letter to Saban, pledging to speak out publicly against the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) campaign aimed at Israel.

Another Israeli whore!

 

 

Burning Skin From Bathing: Detroit Activists Record Testimony Of Flint Water Victims

The video below is testimony from members of the community in Flint, describing how one man’s child received chemical burns from trying to bathe about a year ago. The man describes watching the city pop fire hydrants and do suspicious things without ever warning the community not to consume or bathe in the water, long before this became known nationwide.

Statins DOUBLE the risk of diabetes according to ‘alarming’ 10-year study

Healthy patients taking the heart drug statins have a significantly higher risk of new diabetes and a very high risk of serious diabetic complications, a study has found.

The research, published in the Journal of General Internal Medicine in May 2015, tracked individuals in a database for almost ten years. It discovered statin users had a higher incidence of diabetes and also weight gain.

Patients using the drugs were also more likely than the others to develop diabetes with complications including eye, nerve and kidney damage.

 

 

Hundreds of Ontario adoptions on hold amid Motherisk drug-test scandal

The Ontario government has ordered hundreds of adoption cases to stop moving forward while a judge reviews whether the children should have been put up for adoption in the first place, CBC News has learned.

The move has put as many as 300 families in legal limbo, not knowing when — or if — their adoptions will be finalized.

It comes in the wake of the scandal over the Motherisk drug-testing program run by Toronto’s Hospital for Sick Children. The laboratory analysed the hair of babies to test for drug and alcohol use by their moms, and the results were used as evidence in the cases of thousands of children taken into care by children’s aid societies.

In other words, Canada implemented a policy based on a testing system that produced bogus results, and destroyed families as a result.

Whatever happened to making sure something works perfectly BEFORE using it on the public?

 

 

Zionism’s Exaggerated Sense of Entitlement

As we prepare for our sixth year of protesting for the rights of Palestinians in Adelaide’s Rundle Mall we are reflecting on some new and disturbing behaviour from our detractors. Over the last 275 weeks we have had plenty of time and multiple opportunities to judge how various forms of Zionists and Christian Zionists comport themselves in public. Many of the behaviours appear to be counter-intuitive. It is well documented that a majority of Australians disapprove of Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians and believe that the Zionist Israeli government’s policies have a negative influence on world affairs. According to the BBC World Poll 2015 69% of Australians hold a negative view of Israel.

 

 

Now Britain plans to hit ISIS in Libya as secret team flies in to draw up list of targets for bombing raids

Britain is planning aerial bombings against Islamic State militants controlling parts of war-torn Libya, according to a military source.

A team of six RAF officers and MI6 operatives flew to an airbase near the eastern Libyan city of Tobruk, which is under control by internationally recognised militia forces.

Diplomats from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and US and French military personnel also took part to the gathering, the Sunday Times reports.

 

 

 

FLASHBACK – Secret Pentagon Report Reveals US “Created” ISIS As A “Tool” To Overthrow Syria’s President Assad

From the first sudden, and quite dramatic, appearance of the fanatical Islamic group known as ISIS which was largely unheard of until a year ago, on the world’s stage and which promptly replaced the worn out and tired al Qaeda as the world’s terrorist bogeyman, we suggested that the “straight to beheading YouTube clip” purpose behind the Saudi Arabia-funded Islamic State was a simple one: use the Jihadists as the vehicle of choice to achieve a political goal: depose of Syria’s president Assad, who for years has stood in the way of a critical Qatari natural gas pipeline, one which could dethrone Russia as Europe’s dominant – and belligerent – source of energy, reaching an interim climax with the unsuccessful Mediterranean Sea military build up of 2013, which nearly resulted in quasi-world war.

Dangerous weaponry used on refugees with no legal status in Calais

Infamous street-artist Banksy made headlines again this week with his latest illicit artwork. The piece, which was painted opposite the French Embassy in London, features a crying Cosette from Les Miserables, her tears the result of a cloud of CS gas that engulfs her. Like his recent pieces on the edge of The Jungle camp and around Calais, it’s another comment on the refugee crisis. This piece takes a pop at the French government’s handling of the situation – and, in particular, their use of public order weaponry against the people that live in the makeshift encampment.

 

 

Where is the West’s compassion & condemnation following terror attacks in Middle East?

Facebook users were not instructed to do so, but may nonetheless wish to change their profile pictures in solidarity with the families and friends of victims of recent terrorist attacks.

A great many of the victims were aspiring university students, others were school teachers, children, infants, parents, and elderly. Their bodies were torn apart in the acts of violence, many unidentifiable.

Most of these innocent victims will go unnamed, their murders obfuscated, or largely unnoticed, in Western media.

 

11 MILLION PAGES OF CIA FILES MAY SOON BE SHARED BY THIS KICKSTARTER

Millions of pages of CIA documents are stored in Room 3000. The CIA Records Search Tool (CREST), the agency’s database of declassified intelligence files, is only accessible via four computers in the National Archives Building in College Park, MD, and contains everything from Cold War intelligence, research and development files, to images. Now one activist is aiming to get those documents more readily available to anyone who is interested in them, by methodically printing, scanning, and then archiving them on the internet.

John Oliver Hilariously Explains How Easy It Is to Set up a Church and Get People to Send You Money

Appearing on the Tonight Show, HBO comedy host John Oliver told fellow host Jimmy Fallon how ridiculously easy it was for him to set up his own church and how it subsequently “got out of hand really fast” after collecting over $70,000 — and a few other things he never asked for.

Last year, the Last Week Tonight host created his own church — “Our Lady of Perpetual Exemption” — to mock laws that allow evangelists to practice so-called “seed-based” fundraising that often goes towards paying for the pastors’ lavish lifestyles.

Three weeks later Oliver shut down the church when things grew out of control.
Speaking of setting up the church, Oliver laughed and said, “It turns out that is an incredibly easy thing to do, with almost no legal consequences.”

Scientology actually began as a bet between two science fiction writers, Robert Heinlein and L. Ron Hubbard. Hubbard bet he could create a totally silly religion about how humans were dropped off here on Earth by the flying saucer people and still get people to believe in it.

Heinlein didn’t think people were that stupid.

Heinlein lost.

Doctors subject early-cancer patients to excessive radiation because it makes them more money

Although some claim that the use of the old method is merely “ingrained” in physicians who are skeptical about new therapies, this can hardly be used as an excuse — especially when there have been multiple randomized trials proving its effectiveness.

And in light of the fact that the rest of the world has adopted hypofractionated whole breast irradiation as the standard treatment, it’s difficult to believe that American doctors are simply uninformed or “behind the times.”

So that leaves only one possible explanation: money.

Busted: 25,000 cases of microcephaly in the US per year Jan31

Microcephaly: babies born with smaller heads and brain impairment. Heard of it? Of course you have. Towering experts are saying it’s caused by the Zika virus in Brazil.

They don’t know how. They don’t know why. But they’re saying it over and over like trained parrots.

They’re saying that, somehow, this virus, which for at least 60 years was causing only mild illness, is now at the heart of all these new cases of microcephaly.

Really? Then why are there 25,000 cases of microcephaly in the US every year?

Doctors in Brazil are screaming that most of these microcephalic babies do not have Zika and were no born of mothers who had Zika. But the sudden explosion of microcephaly in Brazil does time to a program of mandated vaccinations for pregnant mothers. So the fingers are pointing back and forth with defenders of the vaccine-industrial complex blaming pesticides, and the pesticide companies blaming the vaccines, and so forth. But one thing is clear. It doesn’t matter if it is the vaccines or pesticides; it is just another example (like the water in Flint) that corporations and governments treat us like livestock, willing to poison us to make a fast buck!

 

Tens of Millions Wasted on “Ghost” Schools, and That’s Just the Tip of the Iceberg

“The lack of security has made it almost impossible for many U.S. and even some Afghan officials to get out and manage and inspect US-funded reconstruction projects,” he says. The inability to adequately inspect and manage reconstruction efforts has led to extreme waste, including one case where the Afghan government found that millions of dollars had disappeared as Afghanistan paid for “nonexistent ‘ghost’ schools, ‘ghost’ teachers, and ‘ghost’ students.”

I think you will agree that money would have been better spent on schools, teachers, and fixing the water systems inside the US, but the government’s attitude seems to be better billions wasted in a war zone than a single penny spent on the taxpayers!

Very often the carriers of virus have them both. In the beginning it affected Ukrainian soldiers en masse, DPR intelligence reported that bodies were just left in the snow and nearly 40 bodies were taken from a single unit. Then it spreaded to the front line. The situation is very difficult” – he wrote on his page on LiveJournal.

Anti-fracking campaigners say shale gas drilling could have ‘devastating’ impact for Nottinghamshire

Campaigners warned fracking could bring “devastating” consequences as it creeps closer to Nottinghamshire.

More than 30 people crowded around the Brian Clough statue in Nottingham city centre on Sunday to highlight the issues associated with the controversial deep-drilling technique.

It was one of a series of co-ordinated “No Fracking Way” protests held around the country, as anti-fracking demonstrators took the government to task over plans to dig for shale gas.

Nottinghamshire County Council says there is a “very strong impetus” to start drilling in areas across Broxtowe and Rushcliffe.

The goal of U.S. foreign policy is to support the military-industrial complex through ‘interminable war,’ reveals former Bush official

As reported by Zero Hedge, retired U.S. Army Col. Lawrence Wilkerson said in a recent interview that the main “purpose” today of American foreign policy “is to support the complex that we have created in the national security state that is fueled, funded and powered by interminable war.”

Cologne carnival organisers hand out leaflets telling migrants not to rape women or urinate in public in the wake of New Year sex attacks

Cologne and Bonn carnival organisers have begun handing out rules for refugees for next week’s jollity – with warnings about women, alcohol and urinating in public.

The cities are on edge after mass sexual assaults by immigrants against hundreds of women on New Year’s Eve in Cologne. The number of complaints resulting from the frenzy in and around the main station now stands at over 820.

Carnival is, if anything, even bigger than New Year in the Rhineland where cities like Bonn, Cologne and Dusseldorf go crazy in a week long celebration of parades, parties, dances and fetes.

 

 

Why Is Obama Flooding Small Towns In The Most Conservative Parts Of America With Refugees?

Why are small towns in conservative states being specifically targeted for refugee resettlement? Of course the Obama administration will never publicly admit that this is happening, but it doesn’t take a genius to figure out what is going on. Just look at the uproar that refugee resettlement is now causing in small communities in Idaho, Montana, North Dakota and Kansas. The Obama administration has deemed large cities such as Washington D.C. to be “too expensive” for the refugees, and so large numbers of them are being dispersed throughout smaller communities all over the nation. If you drop a few hundred refugees into a major city of several million people, it isn’t going to make much of a difference. But if you drop a few hundred refugees into a small town that has only a few thousand people living there, you can start to fundamentally alter the character of the whole area.

Americans are eating themselves INSANE… causes of mental insanity identified in factory foods

The real reason society is so incredibly insane at every level is rooted in the consumption of toxic heavy metals through food, water and other environmental sources. It’s exacerbated by the poisonous heavy metals being fed to factory farmed chickens (and other animals) whose poop is harvested and spread on soils that are used to grow foods for humans. Once humans eat the contaminated food that’s laced with lead, cadmium, mercury and arsenic, their own feces is “recycled” and turned into “bio solids” that are placed back onto commercial farm lands as “fertilizer.”

Iran cancels conference on oil contracts over visa

Iran has cancelled an oil conference that was scheduled for next month in London to unveil new terms for oil contracts, citing visa restrictions.

“The London conference has been cancelled because the British embassy in Tehran could not issue visas for representatives of Iranian companies as its visa section has yet to become active,” Ali Kardor, a deputy head of National Iranian Oil Company (NIOC), was quoted as saying by Seda weekly.
***
Britain closed its embassy in 2011, but it was reopened late last year. However, Iranians willing to travel to the United Kingdom need to go to a third country to get visa.

The London conference was planned to be held Feb. 22-24 as international sanctions have been lifted following the entry into force of Iran’s landmark nuclear agreement with world powers this month.

Stephen Cohen Schools Al Jazeera Buffoon on Russia (Video)

“What a disgrace!?” – taken from Youtube comments.
Al Jazeera America recently announced that they are closing down after having spent $2 billion (that is billion, with a “B”), since starting the American channel in 2013, including paying $500 million for Al Gore’s TV company, Current TV, a deal on which Gore netted $100 million personally. Current TV was a dog which Gore would never have sold, but that’s another influence peddling story. Here is a funny insight into why AJA is now belly-up. Gross professional incompetence. This clip is from September 2015, but we just stumbled over it and it is priceless, to say the least. Host Ali Velshi gets his ass handed to him. The video is shot from the screen, because, of course, Al Jazeera quickly burned the evidence, – it is nowhere to be found in its original on the web or on the channel’s website.

Russian inspectors to perform observation flight over Turkey — Russian Defense Ministry

Russian inspectors will perform an observation flight over the territory of Turkey within the framework of the Open Skies Treaty, a senior Russian Defense Ministry official said. “As part of implementation of the international Open Skies Treaty, a Russian group of inspectors plans to conduct a surveillance flight on board a Russian An-30B aircraft over the territory of Turkey,” chief of the ministry’s National Nuclear Risk Reduction Center Sergey Ryzhkov said. “The observation flight will be performed on February 1-5, 2016 from the Eskisehir airfield,” Ryzhkov said, adding that maximum range of the flight will be 1,900 kilometers. This will be the first observation flight by Russia over the territories of the Open Skies treaty members in 2016. He said the flight would be conducted along an agreed route, and Turkish specialists on board will control the use of surveillance equipment and observation of treaty provisions.

 

 

Jaish al-Islam terrorist group to join peace Syria talks in Geneva — opposition

Mohammed Alloush, a representative of the Jaish al-Islam group will soon arrive in Geneva to join the negotiating process, a representative of the Syrian opposition told TASS on Sunday. “He will arrive soon,” Omar Kush said. “And he will take part in the talks.” Sources say Alloush may arrive in Switzerland in the coming night or by Monday evening. The Jaish al-Islam group is recognized as terrorist in Russia, that is why Moscow is against its participation in the Geneva talks on Syrian settlement. The opposition representative noted that Riyad Hijab, the coordinator of Syria’s opposition Higher Negotiations Council (HNC) and former Prime Minister, will arrive in Geneva in 48 hours, but Asaad al-Zoubi to remain as opposition delegation leader.

She did not rule out that in case the government remained as it was Samopomoshch could quit the majority in the Verkhovna Rada (parliament)…

 

 

Source claims Donetsk outskirts were shelled overnight

Kiev forces shelled overnight two villages and the Volvo Center area in the western and northern outskirts of Donetsk, in eastern Ukraine, a source in the law enforcement agencies of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic said on Monday. “The Ukrainian forces began shelling the Zhabichevo village at around 11.30 p.m. The fire later targeted the outskirts of the neighboring Volvo Center. At around the same time the Trudovskiye village was shelled,” the source told the Donetsk news agency. The Ukrainian forces carried out the shelling from the positions in the Pesky and Maryinka villages using the mortars with the caliber of 82 mm and 120 mm, the SPG (tripod-mounted man-portable 73 mm recoilless gun) and small arms, according to the source.

 

 

Secret Fed Docs Show Obama Misled Congress, Public During Debt Limit Crises

The staff report, to be released Tuesday, charges that Lew and other Obama administration officials deliberately misled Congress and the public during the federal budget and debt limit showdowns in both years. The committee will convene a public hearing on the report Feb. 2. The report also states that the Obama administration crafted actual contingency plans to pay for Social Security and veterans benefits, as well as principal and interest on the national debt if the government was temporarily unable to borrow more money. The Committee concludes that over the last two years the Treasury Department has “obstructed” congressional efforts to get to the bottom of the administration’s real-time policy during the two showdowns.

WalMart “Absolutely Shafted” Washington DC; Here’s How

Someone should be “held accountable” for the hundreds of jobs poor residents won’t get thanks to the city’s move to aggressively hike the pay floor. But when it comes to who should be held accountable, perhaps you should ask the city’s unemployed if they’d rather have a job with the minimum wage at $10/hour or be jobless with the minimum wage at $11.50/hour. Once you get your answer, look inward on the whole “accountability” thing.

 

 

What could go wrong!? MICROSOFT APP TO COUNT IOWA

Party officials have said no errors have been spotted in caucus dry runs.

US national debt accelerating at over a trillion/year in our asset-hole ‘debt supply’ system; demanding monetary reform & public banking yet?

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

hat tip: Prison Planet

The US federal government debt is now $19 trillion, having risen over a trillion each year of the Obama administration.

This article will examine US economic status, and obvious solutions promoted by many of America’s brightest minds since Benjamin Franklin wrote a pamphlet how colonial Pennsylvania operated its government without taxes, and which we could easily do today.

Let’s examine just some of the facts of the current US economy that demonstrates it’s criminal status:

We’ve already documented how the global so-called “elite” 1% are now wealthier than the 99% while ~30,000 children die daily from preventable poverty in gruesomely-slow agony. Just 62 people on Earth own more than the bottom 50%.
The US .1% own more than the bottom 90%.
The top 20 Americans (.000006%) own more than the bottom 50%.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!

“The key in the demon mind is its ability to broadcast fake realities into the minds of the sheeple and then broadcast the fake effects to appear as sheeple happily agreeing and complying with it. Sheeple can’t think, they can only go along with the herd on TV. ‘That’s its tool in a nutshell.’ ” — Ursula Haverbeck

Wall Street celebrates mounting signs of US slump

On Friday, the Commerce Department released the latest in a series of economic reports pointing to a dramatic slowdown in the US economy, with vast global implications. The response of Wall Street was a euphoric surge on US markets, sending the Dow Jones industrial average up by nearly 400 points and leading every major stock index around the world to close sharply up for the day.

 

 

Trucks from Russia will be able to leave Poland before February 15

Charity watchdog reportedly places Wounded Warrior Project on its watch list

The Wounded Warrior Project, the charity for wounded veterans, has been placed on Charity Navigator’s watch list over accusations of using donor money toward excessive spending on conferences and parties instead of on recovery programs

According to the charity’s tax forms, obtained by CBS News, spending on conferences and meetings increased from $1.7 million in 2010, to $26 million in 2014, which is the same amount the group spends on combat stress recovery.

Charity Navigator is a watchdog organization that evaluates charities in the U.S

 

 

BEX ALERT: Breaking/Busted: Video Shows Finicum Armed to Kill, So Many Lied

Just remember the guy that runs this agit-prop rag has stated that 40% of what he puts up on his site is BEX!
By the way at least a couple of the men murdered by the Earp Pimp Brothers were unarmed at the time they were murdered!Bad choice!

[ Editor’s note: We have two videos, a short one for the quick and lazy. Finicum goes down like right out of OK Corral, gun in hand. Cliven Bundy lied; Ammon Bundy lied, as did the stooge or hostage or groupie, who suckered so many. Please remember the story of the execution, poor Finicum on his knees begging for mercy while police shoot him repeatedly and then empty their guns into his body.

French Minister: Paris wants Russia to lift food embargo

At the same time, the Minister of agriculture added that neither he nor France can’t discuss with Russia the lifting of the sanctions against it, as it is a question of the European Union. “Of course, I want to lift the embargo, and that the President wants. I went to Russia to discuss with the Russians this topic”. Last week in various cities of France representatives of the agro-industrial complex, which in recent months is in crisis, held large-scale protests. Problems are caused, in particular, by low procurement prices of meat and dairy products of rural households.

Turkey has aligned its air force into a state of “full readiness”

The Turkish air force declared “orange” alert level, which means the state of “full readiness to everything”, in which pilots take the decision to open fire without approval from command. Earlier Ankara has accused Russia of violating the border.
“We are aware of messages and I can confirm that yesterday another Russian military aircraft violated the airspace of Turkey and NATO”, — the representative of the Ministry of defense Mark Wright said the Agency RIA Novosti.
Moscow has rejected these claims. The official representative of the defense Ministry Igor Konashenkov stated that no there were no airspace violations by Russian military aircraft. Official statement of the Turkish foreign Ministry was thus called “unfounded propaganda.”

An American Big Lie About ‘Terrorism’

Micah Zenko is a blogger who posts on a main site of America’s foreign-policy establishment, the Council on Foreign Relations, and he posted there on January 6th, “How Many Bombs Did the United States Drop in 2015?” He calculated: “Last year, the United States dropped an estimated total of 23,144 bombs in six countries. Of these, 22,110 were dropped in Iraq and Syria.”

 

 

Barbershop Shootout Video: Wait for the Right Opportunity

When the robbers become complacent, the legal gun carriers make their move.

 

 

Global Deal To Cut Oil Production Unlikely

Conflicting reports last week that renewed anticipation of global oil production cuts, then quickly squelched it, left in doubt the prospects of crude prices that have plunged 70% the past 18 months and rocked the global economy.

News that OPEC and Russia could meet in February to trim output pushed up West Texas Intermediate 8% until reports shot down the possibility, causing crude to give back much of the advance. Still, speculation of a deal left the U.S. benchmark up 4% the past two trading days at $33.62 a barrel, capping its second straight weekly gain.

So is a global oil agreement likely?

‘Some girls are born to lead!’ Hillary Clinton is heralded as a girl power icon in a new children’s picture book

Chelsea Clinton, who is expecting her second child after giving birth to baby Charlotte in 2014, has a new book to read to her little ones at bedtime.

A children’s book about their grandmother Hillary Clinton chronicles her ascent from a young girl in Illinois to a politician in Washington D.C.

Why the American Revolution Against “Lockdown” Must Begin Now

Is America now caught like a deer in the headlights staring at one “lockdown” event after another not knowing what to do? Or is everyone happy that lockdowns are happening so that the government can keep you safe? Are we not paying attention to what is slowly becoming the greatest freedom crisis ever in American history where every day is now 9/11? What’s missing now is an idea for a revolution against “lockdown” to declare it illegal and unconstitutional once and for all. Until this idea catches fire we are all in for some very dark days.

Judge orders ‘Jackie’ to turn over communications: A federal judge officially has ordered the young woman at the center of a debunked Rolling Stone article to turn over communications about her alleged sexual assault.

U.S. District Judge Glen Conrad penned an order filed in federal court Monday compelling the cooperation of “Jackie,” the young woman whose account of a brutal gang rape at a 2012 fraternity party during her freshman year at the University of Virginia served as the centerpiece of a now-retracted article about the culture of sexual assault on college campuses.

A Chinese Banker Explains Why There Is No Way Out

Over the past year, we have frequently warned that the biggest financial risk (if not social, which in the form of soaring worker unrest is a far greater threat to Chinese civilization) threatening China, is its runaway non-performing loans, which at anywhere between 10 and 20% of total bank assets, mean that China is one chaotic default away from collapsing into the post “Minsky Moment” singlarity where it can no longer rollover its bad debt, leading to a debt supernova and full financial collapse. And as China’s total leverage keeps rising, and according to at least one estimate is now a gargantuan 350% of GDP (incidentally the same as the US), the threat of a rollover “glitch” gets exponentially greater.

The schedule laid out by U.S. District Judge Edmund Sargus in the Southern District of Ohio during a hearing Wednesday is aimed at pushing the parties closer to resolving more than 3,550 lawsuits.

 

 

200 Swedes Storm Occupied Stockholm Train Station, Beat Migrant Children

Sweden is losing its patience with refugees.

In the wake of the sexual assaults allegedly perpetrated by men of “Arab origin” in Cologne, Germany on New Year’s Eve, the Swedish press revealed what certainly appeared to be a coverup related to a wave of similar incidents that apparently occurred at a youth festival and concert in central Stockholm’s Kungsträdgården last August.

That ruffled the feathers of quite a few Swedes and then, earlier this week, we learned that a 22-year-old asylum center worker was murdered in a knife attack carried out by a 15-year-old Somali migrant named Youssaf Khalif Nuur, shown below.

 

 

Six Years and $17 Billion Wasted in Afghanistan

What did you get for Christmas these last six years?

The U.S. government was nice enough to gift our loyal friends the Afghans $17 billion of your tax money, and, in the true spirit of giving, asked nothing in return for itself.

What that means in actual dollars and nonsense is that the U.S. government wasted $17 billion in taxpayer money in Afghanistan on various projects that never made it off the ground or were doomed to fail because of incompetence or lack of maintenance, according to a new report.

Hillary: A Lie Wrapped Inside Deceit, Inside a Crime

Oh, what a web we weave, when we practice to deceive…

Hillary’s really not very good at her main job; that of a professional liar.

Every time Hillary Clinton is asked by the media about her involvement in the Email Scandal, she continually states that she did not receive or send any information marked classified at the time.

When pressed on this, she comments that the information might have become classified at a later date, after it flowed through her non-secure server and into the hands of Putin, ISIS, Xi, Kim Jong-Un and the maniacal Mullahs of Teheran.

Anyone who knows anything about the storage and proper dissemination of classified information knows that this comment is an outright falsehood, or what they call in Texas a crock of s**t. Classified information is not an egg. It doesn’t sit unclassified under glass and an eighty watt bulb and eventually hatch to classified status one day.

Chaos and war on Russia’s border

Dear friends,

This is a conversation between one of the foremost Russian experts on the Ukraine, Rostislav Ishchenko, and one of the best know Russian military experts, Igor Korotchenko. Both of them have Ukrainian last names and Ishchenko actually worked for several Ukrainian presidents. These two guys really know what is going on and both of them enjoy a superb access to Russian decision-makers. In this conversation they discuss the Ukrainian crisis, the war in Syria and other national security issues in great detail and from many aspects. This is why I asked Eugenia to subtitle this video even though it is a very long one (1 hour and 20 minutes). An immense THANK YOU to Eugenia for taking on such a huge task (even though she has a demanding job and a family!). The fact that such long, but detailed and extremely interesting conversations are translated by volunteers of the Saker Community greatly contributes to make our blogs something unique.

Enjoy this most interesting discussion and please let us know what you think.

Kind regards,

The Saker

Closing out her Iowa campaign, Hillary Clinton on Friday declared that the Medicare-for-all proposal pushed by her Democratic primary opponent and many liberal groups will “never, ever come to pass.” The statement came weeks after a new poll showed most Americans support the idea. Her declaration was a reversal of her position two decades ago — which came before she received millions of dollars of campaign cash from the health industry.

Are These Companies Growing Produce with Oil Industry Waste Water?

Some commercial farms in California came up with their own solution to the drought, and it’s not pretty. They decided to use recycled oil industry waste water to grow their produce. Chevron Oil Company treats 21 million gallons of waste water per day and sells it to farmers, who in turn use it to water 45,000 acres of crops in one of the country’s primary produce-growing areas.

An environmental group called Food and Water Watch received a list from the district of the names and addresses of companies that use its water.

Look for these labels in the grocery store, and avoid them until/unless they are proven safe, because they’re most likely grown using oil industry wastewater.

SUNDAY MATINEE ~~ PALESTINIAN ART OF STEADFASTNESS

After the 1948 ethnic cleansing of Palestine, what has become known as the Nakba, the theme of refugees — “hopeless, helpless and without homes” — dominated.

But, as veteran artist Sliman Mansour explains, after the emergence of the armed struggle in the 1960s, “Palestinian art became proud.”

“The Palestinian woman with her nice dress, flowing hair and long neck: the woman is a symbol of the revolution,” he says.

Jerusalem soon became a symbol for Palestine, and Mansour is perhaps best known for his painting of an elderly man carrying its walled Old City, with the Dome of the Rock as its crown jewel, on his back.

Son of French foreign minister charged with forgery

The son of France’s Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius has been charged with forgery, the latest judicial action to hit the man known in France for his passion for gambling.

Judicial sources said Saturday Thomas Fabius is also accused of involvement in fraud, tax laundering, breach of trust and misuse of corporate assets.

A source close to the case said the forgery charge is based on a complaint by French bank Societe Generale about an email Thomas wrote while in Morocco in late 2011. The email, which he wrote on behalf of his bank advisor, made a Moroccan casino to believe that Thomas was about to receive 200,000 euros.

In August of 2014, multiple deputies with the Marion County Sheriff’s office conducted a drug bust. During the bust, Derrick Price ran from deputies Jesse Terrell, Trevor Fitzgerald, James Amideo, Cody Hoppel and Adam Crawford. However, once he realized he could not outrun the pickup truck, he quickly stopped, put his hands up, and laid face down on the ground — completely surrendering.

Upon reaching the unarmed, nonviolent, completely compliant, and prostrate man, the deputies proceeded to unleash a furious beating composed of kicks to the head, knees to the body, and countless blows from fists.

Stratfor: Washington will not permit any rapprochement between Germany and Russia

Strengthening of partnership between Germany and Russia would strengthen both countries, but Takada developments would represent a threat to US interests – an assessment of the founder of Stratfor, George Friedman.

“Germany today is under enormous pressure and it is economically vulnerable, and it needed the active cooperation with other countries. However, Berlin is in the choice of partners it’s pretty limited. For the greatest benefit would that comprehensive rapprochement with Russia, but he knows that this would cause enormous discontent United States. “

Friedman openly claims to be an important goal of Washington, from whose realization would not give up, just disable warming between Germany and Russia:

However, all good things come to an end, and sometimes, that “end” is the beginning of something much better. And the end of modern consumer supply chains is just such a case…

France to recognize Palestinian state if peace efforts fail: FM

French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius told a Friday gathering of foreign diplomats that Paris has a responsibility as a permanent member of the UN Security Council to keep up efforts to find a solution between Israel and Palestine.

“We cannot let the two-state solution disintegrate. It is our responsibility as a UN Security Council member and a power seeking peace,” Fabius said.

He noted that France is planning to hold an international conference in the “coming weeks” to bring together the Israeli and Palestinian sides as well as the US and some European and Arab states.

If this last attempt at finding a solution ends in a deadlock, “we need to face our responsibilities by recognizing the Palestinian state,” Fabius said.

In fact, besides the recent declaration from the group’s leadership that fighters’ salaries will be cut by 50% due to “exceptional circumstances,” we really haven’t seen any concrete evidence to support the contention that “the terrorists” (as Sergei Lavrov matter-of-factly calls them) are on their last legs.

Ramadi was retaken by the Iraqi army but the real prize is Mosul and ISIS remains just as entrenched there as they ever were. The group recently launched a serious offensive in Libya, where the country’s oil infrastructure is under attack. And no one is any closer to liberating Raqqa, the de facto ISIS capital.

At least they are admitting this is all in the imagination of the NATO commander!

 

 

‘People Are Shocked, People Are Scared’ – A Letter From Germany

‘Mini tsunami’ along Washington coast caught on camera

People on the Washington Coast got quite a show over the weekend when a “rogue” wave rolled in and inundated a creek and beach near Pacific Beach.

Irene Sumi was staying at a friend’s home, which overlooks the mouth of Joe Creek, and just happened to flip on her camera when the wave started to come in.

“The tide was coming in but that was definitely a rogue wave that came in quickly and big — filled up the entire creek bed and beach,” she said.

Sumi says she visits the area regularly.

“I’ve never seen a big wave come in like that,” she said.

Maybe it’s a rogue wave, or maybe there is some slow slippage along the Cascadia fault; too slow to be caught on seismographs, but enough to pile up some water!

 

New Mexico Will Sue EPA For Polluting A River With Mine Waste

New Mexico will sue the EPA for accidentally unleashing three million gallons of mine wastewater into state waters and contaminating drinking water for thousands of people.

“From the very beginning, the EPA failed to hold itself accountable in the same way that it would a private business,” Ryan Flynn, the New Mexico Environment Department’s cabinet secretary, said in a statement Thursday. “The EPA caused an unprecedented disaster that may affect our state for years to come; they must take responsibility.”

Of course, you need to remember that while the EPA’s public face is about the environment, it’s real purpose when Nixon created it was to steal land to use as collateral for the National Debt after Nixon ended gold convertibility.

 

 

Sen. McCain leads planned theft of Apache sacred lands for copper mining

With deception and spin, McCain and his team of thieves hid away the theft of Oak Flat, sacred lands of Apache, in the National Defense Authorization Act passed by the Senate on Friday, after being passed by the House. McCain and his fellow thieves in Congress have duped the public once again. And they all came out smiling.

Daesh training camps found in Europe

The EU law enforcement agencies claimed that the Islamic State planned to carry out new acts of terror in the EU countries.

According to the police, there is a whole training system for terrorists in Europe. Special training camps operate covertly in the guise of religious meetings.

The Europol report says that, ‘besides training camps in Syria, there are also smaller ones in the EU and the Balkan States. The ISIS recruiters have a possibility to check physical condition and firmness of purpose of those willing to enter the group due to survival techniques training.’

Jihadis are taught how to handle weapons and behave oneself during an interrogation. The skills are needed to conduct terror acts at their home countries and abroad. Education is carried out in the guise of religious lessons and the Koran reading.

 

 

Syrian Army Winning Battle against Militants in Lattakia Regardless of Turkish Artillery Shelling

The Syrian Army and its popular allies are making a rapid march on terrorists’ positions at Lattakia province’s border with Turkey, battlefield source said, adding that even the Turkish Army’s artillery shelling of Syrian government forces has failed to slow them down.

So Turkey has basically started a war with Syria.

 

 

22 Clinton Emails Deemed Too Classified to Be Made Public

The department announced that 18 emails exchanged between Mrs. Clinton and President Obama would also be withheld, citing the longstanding practice of preserving presidential communications for future release. The department’s spokesman, John Kirby, said that exchanges did not involve classified information.

But they do prove Obama lied when he stated he first learned that Hillary had a private server form the media!

The emperor has no clothes: The West Bank, settlements and the two State Solution

Each and every US administration as well as the European governments has been complicit in the crimes committed by Israel. However, it is time for the rest of the world to wake up and end the illusion. The illusion that Israel has legitimacy, the illusion that Israel is somehow the answer to the holocaust and to anti-Semitism, and the illusion that some parts of Palestine are occupied while others are not. It’s time to call out loud and clear that all Israeli settlements everywhere are illegal and just as in the tale “The Emperor’s New Clothes,” the emperor had no clothes, Israel too has no legitimacy

 

 

War in Syria: Russia’s ‘rustbucket’ military delivers a hi-tech shock to West and Israel

Their army’s equipment and strategy was “outmoded”; their air force’s bombs and missiles were “more dumb than smart”; their navy was “more rust than ready”. For decades, this was Western military leaders’ view, steeped in condescension, of their Russian counterparts. What they have seen in Syria and Ukraine has come as a shock.

Texas Police Turning Into Mobile Debt Collectors

Law enforcement agencies with jurisdiction over I-10 east of San Antonio and I-35 between San Antonio and Austin have signed contracts with Vigilant Solutions, a license plate reader company, with the aim of stopping drivers who have outstanding traffic warrants. The company’s database syncs real-time license scanning with a government warrants database to ping police when a target approaches. At the same time, a new law enacted in 2015 allows police to install credit card readers in patrol vehicles. The idea was to allow people to pay their fines rather than be taken to jail. Vigilant Solutions is piggybacking on that policy.

 

Syrian Army outflanks ISIS fighters in eastern Aleppo – Map update

Pretty soon they will have ISIS in a Cauldron and they will be rolled up and destroyed Like G.A. Custer at the Little Big Horn,which is why Erdogan is screaming bloody murder!

Earlier today, Tiger Forces captured the village of Tanouza as government troops continue to defeat ISIS fighters in eastern Aleppo. Just yesterday, the Syrian Arab Army captured Afesh village while also advancing from newly liberated Wadiah. The main government push seems to be west from Kuweiris Airbase towards the city of Aleppo; meanwhile, sporadic clashes continue relentlessly a few miles from Deir Hafer and Al-Bab.

Regrettably from an Islamist perspective, local ISIS fighters witness themselves desperately trying to predict the next advance by Tiger Forces. Meanwhile, government troops find themselves in high morale as they continue to seize momentum while gradually passing through a collapsing Islamic State line of defence.

Has Israel normalised its psychologically disoriented apartheid system?

The extreme militarization of any nation requires an enemy, or at least the concept of an enemy and in the presence of the ‘imaginary’ enemy, the healthy suspicious and cautious tendency develops into a full fledged delusion of national persecution, that tends to use tools that are beneath a democracy, the tools of a dictatorship and implemented apartheid . The article argues how Israel has normalised its disoriented concept of the “imagined enemy” to justify its apartheid regime and the on going oppression of the Palestinians.

DOJ, FBI “SUPER PISSED OFF” at Obama White House Over Clinton Investigation (Video)

That statement by Josh Earnest has got the back up of our contacts at the FBI and Justice Department for two reasons… They are SUPER PISSED OFF to use a technical term. Number one, Josh Earnest has absolutely no clearance or visibility in the FBI investigation. Number two, they say it really seems part of a troubling pattern from the White House because the president earlier said he did not see any national security implications to the Clinton emails and then we found out he had never been briefed.

Brother of 9/11 Victim Hopes to Bring WTC Evidence to Court

“What could cause this range of recovered body parts from nearly complete to essentially ‘vaporized’? Perhaps it was proximity to explosives?” — Matt Campbell

UK citizen Matt Campbell lost his brother, Geoff, in the North Tower of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.

In the ensuing years, Matt has been on a quest to find a route to justice for his brother’s murder. He has helped expose the fact that the official story is incontrovertibly wrong — that hijacked planes and fires could not possibly be the sole reason for the destruction of the Twin Towers.

 

 

Civil War on the Right

Baited, taunted, mocked by Fox News, Donald Trump told Roger Ailes what he could do with his Iowa debate, and marched off to host a Thursday night rally for veterans at the same time in Des Moines. — Message: I speak for the silent majority, Roger, not you, not Megyn Kelly, not Fox News. Diss me, and I will do fine without Fox. — And so the civil-sectarian war on the right widens and deepens.

Ignore Congress and the Supremos

All are politically correct. They all represent a self-interested clique of parasites.

At the beginning of the Oslo deceptive mirage of “peace”, the zionists hosted several Palestinian “writers” for a month course in the Kibutz of Ein-Herod. In this course, the zionists taught some Palestinians writers the “culture of peace”, ie, the culture of accepting the zionist discourse and believing the zionist lies of “the Promised Land” and “the Chosen people” … this course had done its effect on this pseudo-writer to the degree he had been obsessed with the zionist discourse and believing its myths !!

Charity watchdog reportedly places Wounded Warrior Project on its watch list

The Wounded Warrior Project, the charity for wounded veterans, has been placed on Charity Navigator’s watch list over accusations of using donor money toward excessive spending on conferences and parties instead of on recovery programs

According to the charity’s tax forms, obtained by CBS News, spending on conferences and meetings increased from $1.7 million in 2010, to $26 million in 2014, which is the same amount the group spends on combat stress recovery.

Charity Navigator is a watchdog organization that evaluates charities in the U.S

At the same time, the Minister of agriculture added that neither he nor France can’t discuss with Russia the lifting of the sanctions against it, as it is a question of the European Union. “Of course, I want to lift the embargo, and that the President wants. I went to Russia to discuss with the Russians this topic”. Last week in various cities of France representatives of the agro-industrial complex, which in recent months is in crisis, held large-scale protests. Problems are caused, in particular, by low procurement prices of meat and dairy products of rural households.

“We are aware of messages and I can confirm that yesterday another Russian military aircraft violated the airspace of Turkey and NATO”, — the representative of the Ministry of defense Mark Wright said the Agency RIA Novosti.
Moscow has rejected these claims. The official representative of the defense Ministry Igor Konashenkov stated that no there were no airspace violations by Russian military aircraft. Official statement of the Turkish foreign Ministry was thus called “unfounded propaganda.”

When the robbers become complacent, the legal gun carriers make their move.

 

 

Global Deal To Cut Oil Production Unlikely

Conflicting reports last week that renewed anticipation of global oil production cuts, then quickly squelched it, left in doubt the prospects of crude prices that have plunged 70% the past 18 months and rocked the global economy.

News that OPEC and Russia could meet in February to trim output pushed up West Texas Intermediate 8% until reports shot down the possibility, causing crude to give back much of the advance. Still, speculation of a deal left the U.S. benchmark up 4% the past two trading days at $33.62 a barrel, capping its second straight weekly gain.

So is a global oil agreement likely?

Or is everyone happy that lockdowns are happening so that the government can keep you safe? Are we not paying attention to what is slowly becoming the greatest freedom crisis ever in American history where every day is now 9/11? What’s missing now is an idea for a revolution against “lockdown” to declare it illegal and unconstitutional once and for all. Until this idea catches fire we are all in for some very dark days.

A Chinese Banker Explains Why There Is No Way Out

Over the past year, we have frequently warned that the biggest financial risk (if not social, which in the form of soaring worker unrest is a far greater threat to Chinese civilization) threatening China, is its runaway non-performing loans, which at anywhere between 10 and 20% of total bank assets, mean that China is one chaotic default away from collapsing into the post “Minsky Moment” singlarity where it can no longer rollover its bad debt, leading to a debt supernova and full financial collapse. And as China’s total leverage keeps rising, and according to at least one estimate is now a gargantuan 350% of GDP (incidentally the same as the US), the threat of a rollover “glitch” gets exponentially greater.

What that means in actual dollars and nonsense is that the U.S. government wasted $17 billion in taxpayer money in Afghanistan on various projects that never made it off the ground or were doomed to fail because of incompetence or lack of maintenance, according to a new report.

Hillary: A Lie Wrapped Inside Deceit, Inside a Crime

Oh, what a web we weave, when we practice to deceive…

Hillary’s really not very good at her main job; that of a professional liar.

Every time Hillary Clinton is asked by the media about her involvement in the Email Scandal, she continually states that she did not receive or send any information marked classified at the time.

When pressed on this, she comments that the information might have become classified at a later date, after it flowed through her non-secure server and into the hands of Putin, ISIS, Xi, Kim Jong-Un and the maniacal Mullahs of Teheran.

Anyone who knows anything about the storage and proper dissemination of classified information knows that this comment is an outright falsehood, or what they call in Texas a crock of s**t. Classified information is not an egg. It doesn’t sit unclassified under glass and an eighty watt bulb and eventually hatch to classified status one day.

Chaos and war on Russia’s border

Dear friends,

This is a conversation between one of the foremost Russian experts on the Ukraine, Rostislav Ishchenko, and one of the best know Russian military experts, Igor Korotchenko. Both of them have Ukrainian last names and Ishchenko actually worked for several Ukrainian presidents. These two guys really know what is going on and both of them enjoy a superb access to Russian decision-makers. In this conversation they discuss the Ukrainian crisis, the war in Syria and other national security issues in great detail and from many aspects. This is why I asked Eugenia to subtitle this video even though it is a very long one (1 hour and 20 minutes). An immense THANK YOU to Eugenia for taking on such a huge task (even though she has a demanding job and a family!). The fact that such long, but detailed and extremely interesting conversations are translated by volunteers of the Saker Community greatly contributes to make our blogs something unique.

Enjoy this most interesting discussion and please let us know what you think.

Kind regards,

The Saker

Hillary Clinton Gets $13 Million From Health Industry, Now Says Single-Payer Will “Never, Ever Come To Pass”

Closing out her Iowa campaign, Hillary Clinton on Friday declared that the Medicare-for-all proposal pushed by her Democratic primary opponent and many liberal groups will “never, ever come to pass.” The statement came weeks after a new poll showed most Americans support the idea. Her declaration was a reversal of her position two decades ago — which came before she received millions of dollars of campaign cash from the health industry.

Are These Companies Growing Produce with Oil Industry Waste Water?

Some commercial farms in California came up with their own solution to the drought, and it’s not pretty. They decided to use recycled oil industry waste water to grow their produce. Chevron Oil Company treats 21 million gallons of waste water per day and sells it to farmers, who in turn use it to water 45,000 acres of crops in one of the country’s primary produce-growing areas.

An environmental group called Food and Water Watch received a list from the district of the names and addresses of companies that use its water.

Look for these labels in the grocery store, and avoid them until/unless they are proven safe, because they’re most likely grown using oil industry wastewater.

Switzerland will be the first country in the world to vote on having a national wage of £1,700 a month: If the plans go through, it will become the first country in the world to provide a basic unconditional monthly income, and they are already the first

The idea, which has been put forward by a group of intellectuals who insist people will still want to work and get jobs, has not received positive interest from either left and right sided politicians.

The federal government approved to vote on the intiative in June.

The rationale behind the scheme is to break the link between employment and income, where people will have guaranteed income regardless whether they are in employment or not.

PALESTINIAN AFFAIRS CHOKED BY LAYERS OF CONFUSION

The Israeli occupation seeps into every aspect of life, including our internal affairs. This is not an excuse for our state of affairs, but rather a fact that has always been there and must be understood and taken into consideration as we plan our actions. It is these desired “actions,” or lack thereof, where lack of clarity enters.

 

 

SUNDAY MATINEE ~~ PALESTINIAN ART OF STEADFASTNESS

After the 1948 ethnic cleansing of Palestine, what has become known as the Nakba, the theme of refugees — “hopeless, helpless and without homes” — dominated.

But, as veteran artist Sliman Mansour explains, after the emergence of the armed struggle in the 1960s, “Palestinian art became proud.”

“The Palestinian woman with her nice dress, flowing hair and long neck: the woman is a symbol of the revolution,” he says.

Jerusalem soon became a symbol for Palestine, and Mansour is perhaps best known for his painting of an elderly man carrying its walled Old City, with the Dome of the Rock as its crown jewel, on his back.

Angry Residents Wave Pitchforks, Torches In Protest Of Mayor’s Crackdown On Homelessness

A group of fired-up activists in Portland, Ore., who were tired of seeing homeless people being mistreated staged the kind of protest that will be difficult for the mayor to ignore.

An estimated 4,000 people sleep on the streets of Portland, Ore., on any given night and, since last summer, life has become increasingly difficult for them.

So, a group of protesters descended upon Portland City Hall on Tuesday night carrying pitchforks and torches to “shame the mayor into action,” organizer Jessie Sponberg told The Oregonian.

Son of French foreign minister charged with forgery

The son of France’s Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius has been charged with forgery, the latest judicial action to hit the man known in France for his passion for gambling.

Judicial sources said Saturday Thomas Fabius is also accused of involvement in fraud, tax laundering, breach of trust and misuse of corporate assets.

A source close to the case said the forgery charge is based on a complaint by French bank Societe Generale about an email Thomas wrote while in Morocco in late 2011. The email, which he wrote on behalf of his bank advisor, made a Moroccan casino to believe that Thomas was about to receive 200,000 euros.

Behind Israel’s campaign to vilify peace groups

Israeli government funds have been secretly transferred to far-right organisations leading a smear campaign against groups opposed to the occupation, a series of investigations show.

The rightwing groups have received tens of millions of dollars in state funding, either directly from the government or via Israeli local authorities representing the settlements in the West Bank.

In three known cases, publicly funded far-right organisations launched spying operations on human rights groups.

In August of 2014, multiple deputies with the Marion County Sheriff’s office conducted a drug bust. During the bust, Derrick Price ran from deputies Jesse Terrell, Trevor Fitzgerald, James Amideo, Cody Hoppel and Adam Crawford. However, once he realized he could not outrun the pickup truck, he quickly stopped, put his hands up, and laid face down on the ground — completely surrendering.

Upon reaching the unarmed, nonviolent, completely compliant, and prostrate man, the deputies proceeded to unleash a furious beating composed of kicks to the head, knees to the body, and countless blows from fists.

Stratfor: Washington will not permit any rapprochement between Germany and Russia

Strengthening of partnership between Germany and Russia would strengthen both countries, but Takada developments would represent a threat to US interests – an assessment of the founder of Stratfor, George Friedman.

He runs the largest US private intelligence and analytical company, for which many rightly say that “the CIA in the shadows.” Insofar is indicative that in an interview with Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten pointed out:

“Germany today is under enormous pressure and it is economically vulnerable, and it needed the active cooperation with other countries. However, Berlin is in the choice of partners it’s pretty limited. For the greatest benefit would that comprehensive rapprochement with Russia, but he knows that this would cause enormous discontent United States. “

Friedman openly claims to be an important goal of Washington, from whose realization would not give up, just disable warming between Germany and Russia:

 

 

From Global Supply Chains to Local Freedom With Personal Manufacturing

Go to any logistics company’s website, and they will be more than proud to tell you just how far your consumer goods travel (thanks to them) from factory to storefront before ending up in your hands. And to a certain extent it really is truly amazing how supply chains have fueled the rise of modern society.

However, all good things come to an end, and sometimes, that “end” is the beginning of something much better. And the end of modern consumer supply chains is just such a case…

 

 

The New Clinton Chronicles 2015

 

 

If Hillary is Elected President and Indicted, Can She Pardon Herself?

Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay stirred rumors last Monday when he told Newsmax his friends at the FBI are ready to indict presidential candidate Hillary Clinton for mishandling classified information over a private insecure server while Secretary of State.

Whether the FBI is going to indict her—or if Delay even has friends—isn’t known for sure. What we do know is that the State Department is withholding seven email chains from public release due to “top secret” content.

France to recognize Palestinian state if peace efforts fail: FM

French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius told a Friday gathering of foreign diplomats that Paris has a responsibility as a permanent member of the UN Security Council to keep up efforts to find a solution between Israel and Palestine.

“We cannot let the two-state solution disintegrate. It is our responsibility as a UN Security Council member and a power seeking peace,” Fabius said.

He noted that France is planning to hold an international conference in the “coming weeks” to bring together the Israeli and Palestinian sides as well as the US and some European and Arab states.

If this last attempt at finding a solution ends in a deadlock, “we need to face our responsibilities by recognizing the Palestinian state,” Fabius said.

 

 

ISIS Planning To Build Navy, NATO Commander Imagines

Perhaps the most peculiar thing about Islamic State is that despite continual reports of highly successful airstrikes and proclamations from various governments regarding the extent to which the group’s operational capacity has been severely diminished, they never seem to go away.

In fact, besides the recent declaration from the group’s leadership that fighters’ salaries will be cut by 50% due to “exceptional circumstances,” we really haven’t seen any concrete evidence to support the contention that “the terrorists” (as Sergei Lavrov matter-of-factly calls them) are on their last legs.

Ramadi was retaken by the Iraqi army but the real prize is Mosul and ISIS remains just as entrenched there as they ever were. The group recently launched a serious offensive in Libya, where the country’s oil infrastructure is under attack. And no one is any closer to liberating Raqqa, the de facto ISIS capital.

At least they are admitting this is all in the imagination of the NATO commander!

‘Mini tsunami’ along Washington coast caught on camera

People on the Washington Coast got quite a show over the weekend when a “rogue” wave rolled in and inundated a creek and beach near Pacific Beach.

Irene Sumi was staying at a friend’s home, which overlooks the mouth of Joe Creek, and just happened to flip on her camera when the wave started to come in.

“The tide was coming in but that was definitely a rogue wave that came in quickly and big — filled up the entire creek bed and beach,” she said.

Sumi says she visits the area regularly.

“I’ve never seen a big wave come in like that,” she said.

Maybe it’s a rogue wave, or maybe there is some slow slippage along the Cascadia fault; too slow to be caught on seismographs, but enough to pile up some water!

 

New Mexico Will Sue EPA For Polluting A River With Mine Waste

New Mexico will sue the EPA for accidentally unleashing three million gallons of mine wastewater into state waters and contaminating drinking water for thousands of people.

“From the very beginning, the EPA failed to hold itself accountable in the same way that it would a private business,” Ryan Flynn, the New Mexico Environment Department’s cabinet secretary, said in a statement Thursday. “The EPA caused an unprecedented disaster that may affect our state for years to come; they must take responsibility.”

Of course, you need to remember that while the EPA’s public face is about the environment, it’s real purpose when Nixon created it was to steal land to use as collateral for the National Debt after Nixon ended gold convertibility.

Daesh training camps found in Europe

The EU law enforcement agencies claimed that the Islamic State planned to carry out new acts of terror in the EU countries.

According to the police, there is a whole training system for terrorists in Europe. Special training camps operate covertly in the guise of religious meetings.

The Europol report says that, ‘besides training camps in Syria, there are also smaller ones in the EU and the Balkan States. The ISIS recruiters have a possibility to check physical condition and firmness of purpose of those willing to enter the group due to survival techniques training.’

Jihadis are taught how to handle weapons and behave oneself during an interrogation. The skills are needed to conduct terror acts at their home countries and abroad. Education is carried out in the guise of religious lessons and the Koran reading.

 

 

Syrian Army Winning Battle against Militants in Lattakia Regardless of Turkish Artillery Shelling

The Syrian Army and its popular allies are making a rapid march on terrorists’ positions at Lattakia province’s border with Turkey, battlefield source said, adding that even the Turkish Army’s artillery shelling of Syrian government forces has failed to slow them down.

So Turkey has basically started a war with Syria.

The department announced that 18 emails exchanged between Mrs. Clinton and President Obama would also be withheld, citing the longstanding practice of preserving presidential communications for future release.

But they do prove Obama lied when he stated he first learned that Hillary had a private server form the media!

The emperor has no clothes: The West Bank, settlements and the two State Solution

Each and every US administration as well as the European governments has been complicit in the crimes committed by Israel. However, it is time for the rest of the world to wake up and end the illusion. The illusion that Israel has legitimacy, the illusion that Israel is somehow the answer to the holocaust and to anti-Semitism, and the illusion that some parts of Palestine are occupied while others are not. It’s time to call out loud and clear that all Israeli settlements everywhere are illegal and just as in the tale “The Emperor’s New Clothes,” the emperor had no clothes, Israel too has no legitimacy

 

 

War in Syria: Russia’s ‘rustbucket’ military delivers a hi-tech shock to West and Israel

Their army’s equipment and strategy was “outmoded”; their air force’s bombs and missiles were “more dumb than smart”; their navy was “more rust than ready”. For decades, this was Western military leaders’ view, steeped in condescension, of their Russian counterparts. What they have seen in Syria and Ukraine has come as a shock.

The News and Opinion Websites They Don’t Want YOU To Read

These Sites May Be Run By Truly Insane People”

The Fort Liberty web site recently published a list of web destinations that they say distribute wildly unbelievable and bombastic claims with little or no reference material or sourcing.

A few of these web sites may be run by truly insane people who actually believe what they publish, but if so that is a small minority. One of the proofs of this is how obviously fake the articles are.

As you’ll note from the list below, many of the sites mentioned are some of the most popular in alternative media with communities in excess of millions of readers monthly.

While there is no doubt that a small percentage of reports being made available in alternative media are inaccurate, that same could be said for mainstream media news. The nature of the news cycle is such that sometimes a report is issued before all the facts are in. To suggest that every site on the list offers only fake news, hoaxes or satire is obviously disingenuous, as web sites that made the list such as Infowars.com, Intellihub.com, NaturalNews.com, BeforeItsNews.com and TheDailySheeple.com regularly cite not one, but multiple sources, often directly from the mainstream, for the news reports and commentary they are issuing.

Thus, the hoax being perpetrated, ironically, appears to be coming from Fort Liberty, rather than the scores of web sites they identify in their list.

What we know from past “lists” identifying many of the same web sites you’ll see below is that these are exactly the web destinations you should be visiting regularly, as they provide a level of news that is often impossible to find through mainstream sources.

We’ve included the list for you below. The original list was published without hyperlinks, presumably because the authors do not want readers to actually visit the web sites in question so that they can determine for themselves the legitimacy of the material. We have thus added clickable links so that you, the reader and independent thinker can make the determination for yourself.

We are, by the way, a bit upset that we did not make this year’s list. It would have been an honor to be listed among some of the world’s leading alternative journalists and information aggregators . We’ll try harder in 2016! However, we are truly thankful that our sister web site The Daily Sheeple (which, incidentally, heavily cites and references a majority of all articles being published) was included in the ranks of the best of the best.

We are somewhat outraged that several top alternative news and information web sites failed to make this list, thus we have included a short list below.

Apologies to anyone we may have missed! (Feel free to post your web site in the comment area below if we dropped the ball and failed to mention you in the lists above!)

We also encourage readers to check out the lower portion of our left sidebar and follow the links under Web Destinations for some other great places to visit.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!

“Contemplate the mangled bodies of your countrymen, and then say ‘what should be the reward of such sacrifices?’ Bid us and our posterity bow the knee, supplicate the friendship and plough, and sow, and reap, to glut the avarice of the men who have let loose on us the dogs of war to riot in our blood and hunt us from the face of the earth? If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!” — Samuel Adams

Holocaust victims honored 71 years after Auschwitz liberated

Dozens of elderly Holocaust survivors lit candles at Auschwitz on Wednesday, exactly 71 years after the Soviet army liberated the death camp that has become the most powerful symbol of the human suffering inflicted by Nazi Germany during World War II.

Seven email chains from Clinton server contain ‘top secret’ material: AP

The Obama administration confirmed for the first time Friday that Hillary Clinton’s home server contained closely guarded government secrets, censoring 22 emails that contained material requiring one of the highest levels of classification. The revelation comes three days before Clinton competes in the Iowa presidential caucuses.

 

 

A 13-year-old girl from a Russian-speaking community in Berlin was not kidnapped and sexually assaulted by immigrant men as previously reported, but simply spent the night with an acquaintance.

Planned Parenthood unveils six-figure Clinton ad buy in Iowa

We reported before that the largely taxpayer funded organization had not only endorsed Hillary Clinton for president (it has never endorsed anyone before) but was also planning on spending $20 million dollars in battleground states supporting Ms. Clinton. I guess this is the start of that. Planned Parenthood receives almost a half billion dollars from taxpayers (this is insane to me sorry) to engage in acts which many Americans find deeply abhorrent. How the organization can justify such obvious partisanship in light of their taxpayer funding makes little sense to me. This is just blatant cronyism.

Note the constant references to the Department of Justice, meaning Obama has probably ordered Loretta Lynch not to indict Hillary no matter what the FBI produces.

So, it will be up to We The People to keep this scandal in the public eye and to continue asking the question if Hillary was selling those top secrets on her weak private server to foreign governments in exchange for “donations” to her “charitable” foundation.

 

 

China protested because of the actions of U.S. destroyer in the South China sea

The defense Ministry of China expressed strong protest to the United States because of the patrolling destroyer of the U.S. Navy in the district near the Paracel Islands archipelago. Earlier, Pentagon spokesman captain Jeff Davis said that the Navy destroyer USS Curtis Wilbur approached the Triton island of Paracel archipelago for a distance of 12 nautical miles in operation for the protection of freedom of navigation… He also added that the operation “was a challenge to China, Taiwan and Vietnam, which trying to limit the rights and freedoms of navigation”. The representative of the Ministry of defense of China: the actions of the US destroyer violate the laws of China, and the Navy of China immediately after the incident has taken the necessary response and warned the USS Curtis Wilbur to leave the territorial waters of the country.

BLM zeroed out 12 herds in Nevada in the summer/fall of 2009. 1.4 million acres could not sustain 640 horses as according to BLM WH&B Chief Don Glenn, “the land was no longer appropriate”. However, added livestock grazing leases will be issued on the very land the horses were removed from.

According to wildlife biologist, Craig Downer, the wild horses in these herd areas were not in jeopardy, nor is the land upon which they roam.

China’s 3 Trillion Yuan Margin Call Time Bomb Is About To Explode

Make no mistake, investors didn’t need any more reasons to be bearish on Chinese equities.

Mainland markets are veritable casinos dominated by retail investors who until last summer, were enthralled with the prospect of easy riches in an environment where shares only seemed to know one direction: up.

All of that changed last June when a dramatic unwind in the half dozen backdoor margin lending channels that helped to fuel the rally triggered an epic rout that became self-fulfilling once the retail crowd (which accounts for 80% of the market) became rip sellers rather than dip buyers.

 

 

Report: Store Inventory Levels Reduced Nationwide: “Stock Up Now While You Can!”

Sometimes good comments are worth an entire article. This author is a big believer in the fostering of good, intelligent dialogues with commenters on these various alternative media sites. We all have the ability (with comments) to function in the manner of unofficial reporters. The nation is huge; however, the distance is nominal and the situations that arise in the nation as a whole can be chronicled and reported by we, the average citizens. The comments and interactions are a means to that end.

In this light, I wish to ask you, the Readership to report on this important topic in order to present others with the situations taking place in their locales. The topic referred to being declining inventories and a lack of purchases to meet with customer (I despise the word “consumers”) needs in terms of foodstuffs and nondurable goods.

A Las Vegas Girls Scout troop was turned away from a local venue after it overbooked their activity with a campaign rally for Hillary Clinton.

Washington Post calls Sanders campaign ‘fiction’

The Washington Post did not endorse Hillary Clinton for president, but it essentially wrote off her main rival for the Democratic nomination.

In an editorial published Wednesday night, the Post hit Bernie Sanders’s campaign as “fiction-filled” and said he’s making extravagant, expensive promises he can’t possibly keep.

Isn’t that what politicians do?!? :)

 

 

Ukrainian military responsible for 25 violations of ceasefire regime – DPR

“The Ukrainian military opened fire 224 times on the territory of the republic during 25 violations of the ceasefire regime,” the ministry said. Under the fire was the area around the Donetsk airport, the Volvo Center, as well as Zhabichevo, Spartak, Alexandrovka, Zaitsevo, Golmovsky, Sakhanka and Kominternovo.

5th Toronto police officer now implicated in arrest probe

A fifth Toronto police officer has been implicated in the investigation into a controversial drug bust and alleged attempts to mislead a judge that led to criminal charges against four other officers earlier this week, CBC News has learned.

The four officers were charged Thursday with 17 counts of obstructing justice and perjury in relation to a case that ended with an Ontario Superior Court judge dismissing charges against a man accused of possessing heroin.

France has threatened to recognize Palestine in the case of the failure of international negotiations

France intends in coming weeks to undertake efforts for the preparation of the conference to address the Palestinian-Israeli crisis, and in the case of failure of this meeting will recognize the Palestinian state, said the head of the French foreign Minister Laurent Fabius on Friday. “In the coming weeks, France will make démarches on preparations for the international conference. It should involve interested parties, and their partners, in particular American, European and Arabic”, he said in a speech to French diplomats. “The goal will be the implementation of the principle solution based on the coexistence of two States (Israeli and Palestinian — Interfax)”, — cite the words of Fabius European media. According to him, “if this last attempt to resolve the issue through negotiations would be blocked, we will have to act responsibly and to recognize a Palestinian state”. The Minister criticized the continued construction of Israeli settlements in the Palestinian territories.

 

 

STATEMENT FROM THE LAVOY FINICUM FAMILY 1-29-2016

We know that there are always at least two sides to every story. We also know and recognize that the FBI and law enforcement agencies involved will do everything in their power to make it appear as if the needless death of our husband, father, grandfather, brother and son, LaVoy Finicum, was justified.

Like almost everyone else, we were not there, so we don’t know exactly what happened. Like most others, we have no choice but to rely on other sources of information. One of those sources of information is the account of Victoria Sharp. Another piece of information is the video recently released by the FBI, along with the FBI’s chosen narrative of what happened. In response to this information, we would like to make a few observations.

The first observation is that from what we understand, the occupation was on track toward a peaceful resolution. LaVoy and those he was with were en route to a public

US Air Force Spending Over $271Mln to Expand Balad Base in Iraq

The US Air Force has given Sallyport Global Holdings in Virginia a $271.8 million contract to run security and life support operations at Balad Air Base in Iraq over the next year, the Department of Defense announced.
“Sallyport Global Holdings Inc., Alexandria, Virginia, has been awarded a $271,813,941 modification… contract for base life support, base operations support, and security,” the announcement stated on Friday.
Work is expected to be completed by January 31, 2017, according to the Defense Department.

Now, please give me a moment to wrap my head around this; the US government can spend $271 million on renovations to a military base in Iraq, but cannot spend any money for the people who desperately need clean water here at home?!?

Let’s look at the history, which may give us some idea about why this is happening. As reported at globalresearch.ca:

here is Pentagon and US governmental obfuscation surrounding United States permanent bases in Iraq. Whilst Donald Rumsfeld, US Secretary of Defence, continues to deny a permanent US presence there, the facts appear to contradict his statements. In February 2002, Zoltan Grossman wrote the following cogent perception entitled New US Bases: Side Effects or Causes of War? “Even if this administration pulls combat troops out of Iraq in the future, it intends to keep at least four large permanent military bases, and access or ‘basing rights’ to many smaller bases, to keep control over oil supplies and shipments, support counterinsurgency operations, and to use Iraq as a launching pad against Iran or Syria. The only way that Washington can avoid this impression is to explicitly renounce any future permanent military bases in Iraq.” On 19 April 2003, A NY Times headline said: “A NATION AT WAR: STRATEGIC SHIFT; PENTAGON EXPECTS LONG-TERM ACCESS TO KEY IRAQ BASES. … “military officials … spoke of maintaining perhaps four bases in Iraq that could be used in the future: one at the international airport just outside Baghdad; another at Tallil, near Nasiriya in the south; the third at an isolated airstrip called H-1 in the western desert, along the old oil pipeline that runs to Jordan; and the last at the Bashur air field in the Kurdish north. On the 21st of April Rumsfeld said in a press briefing “I have never, that I can recall, heard the subject of a permanent base in Iraq discussed in any meeting … we don’t plan to function as an occupier, we don’t plan to prescribe to any new government how we ought to be arranged in their country… We have no desire to be there for long periods, we simply don’t. And that’s just a cold, hard fact.” On 23 March 2004, Christine Spolar said in The Chicago Tribune that there was a “long term military presence planned” in Iraq. “U.S. engineers are focusing on constructing 14 “enduring bases,” long-term encampments for the thousands of American troops expected to serve in Iraq for at least two years. The bases also would be key outposts for Bush administration policy advisers.” Major Kimmitt said, “This is a blueprint for how we could operate in the Middle East.” The US was making plans for Iraqi bases in Baghdad, Mosul, Taji, Balad, Kirkuk and in areas near Nasiriyah, near Tikrit, near Fallujah and between Irbil and Kirkuk. There were also plans “to renovate and enhance airfields in Baghdad and Mosul, and rebuild 70 miles of road on the main route for U.S. troops headed north.

Balad is centrally located, and could reasonably have our military supporting military operations against both Syria and Iran.

The project will be completed one year from now.

I have to wonder if that is the beginning of the Pentagon’s timetable for the invasion of Iran.

There’s Another Crime Happening in Flint, On Top of the Poisoning — The Victims Can’t Sue

“There’s real danger that the injury is going to be permanent and lifelong in them,” Dr. Philip Landrigan, Dean of Global Health at Mount Sinai School of Medicine, said of the residents exposed to the water crisis in Flint.

“The problem here is, no level of lead is safe,” Landrigan says. “Even low levels of lead — especially if exposure to low levels continues over many months — is going to cause some degree of brain damage to at least some of the children who have been exposed — that’s a big deal. Exposed children are at risk for a number of problems, including lower IQ scores, developmental delays, and behavioral issues such as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. Even after lead exposure stops, the effects can last for years or even be permanent.”

For the rest of their lives, the residents of Flint will watch their health deteriorate over time, and they will know exactly who is responsible — but will have no course of action to right their wrongs…

World War III – The New Axis of Evil

There isn’t just one motive for this bloodbath. Rather there is a matrix of motives which intersect in some rather odd places.

Of course money had to play a role.

In 2009, Qatar put forth a proposal to build a natural gas pipeline which would have passed through Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Syria, to Turkey and into Europe. The president of Syria, however rejected this proposal. Instead, in 2011 he forged a pact with Iraq and Iran to run a pipeline eastward cutting Qatar and Saudi Arabia out of the loop completely.

It was around this time that jihadists began flooding into the region intent on ousting Assad. The West presented these groups as freedom fighters.

 

 

The Federal Reserve Just Made Another Huge Mistake

As stocks continue to crash, you can blame the Federal Reserve, because the Fed is more responsible for creating the current financial bubble that we are living in than anyone else. When the Federal Reserve pushed interest rates all the way to the floor and injected lots of hot money into the financial markets during their quantitative easing programs, this pushed stock prices to wildly artificial levels. The only way that it would have been possible to keep stock prices at those wildly artificial levels would have been to keep interest rates ultra-low and to keep recklessly creating lots of new money. But now the Federal Reserve has ended quantitative easing and has embarked on a program of very slowly raising interest rates. This is going to have very severe consequences for the markets, but Janet Yellen doesn’t seem to care.

Former Citigroup Trader Explains How Wall Street Came to Own the Clintons and the Democratic Party

Here are some choice excerpts from the piece:

I owe almost my entire Wall Street career to the Clintons. I am not alone; most bankers owe their careers, and their wealth, to them. Over the last 25 years they – with the Clintons it is never just Bill or Hillary – implemented policies that placed Wall Street at the center of the Democratic economic agenda, turning it from a party against Wall Street to a party of Wall Street.

That is why when I recently went to see Hillary Clinton campaign for president and speak about reforming Wall Street I was skeptical. What I heard hasn’t changed that skepticism. The policies she offers are mid-course corrections. In the Clintons’ world, Wall Street stays at the center, economically and politically. Given Wall Street’s power and influence, that is a dangerous place to leave them.

Antidepressants can raise the risk of suicide, the biggest ever review has found, as pharmaceutical companies were accused of failing to report side-effects and even deaths linked to the drugs.

An analysis of 70 trials of the most common antidepressants – involving more than 18,000 people – found they doubled the risk of suicide and aggressive behaviour in under 18s.

Police didn’t properly classify crimes involving rape up to 2014, with about 700 cases containing allegations of sexual abuse remaining unattributed to this category every year. The average number of rape cases annually registered by police was nearly half that figure at 395, according to the Justice Ministry’s investigation, Metroxpress reports.

 

 

Russia calls not to underestimate role of Dutch referendum on EU association with Ukraine

The significance of the Dutch referendum on the ratification of the European Union’s association agreement with Ukraine should not be underestimated, Russia’s Permanent Representative at the European Union Vladimir Chizhov said on Friday. “The Dutch government is seeking to put a good face on I would not say what,” he said in an interview with the Rossiya-24 television channel. “It is obviously not the right time for them, bearing in mind that the Netherlands’ six-month presidency in the European Union Council started from January 1.”

 

“Pedophiles” on an International Scale

The Pseudo-patriotic segment of the Ukrainian part of the Internet gladly picked up the cheap falsified link between “pedophilia” and Putin on the grounds that he once somewhere kissed a child on camera.

So, to avoid being accused of the forgery of facts, please refer to the English Wikipedia:

Baby kissing is a practice where politicians kiss babies in order to garner public support. The practice appears to have originated during the era of Jacksonian democracy along with other techniques such as “banners, badges, parades, barbecues, free drinks and baby kissing [which were used] in an effort to ‘get out the vote'”.

4,500 Russian-Germans Demonstrate Against Migrant Crime in Baden-Württemberg

Many assume that Turks make up the largest immigrant group [in Germany]. This impression is understandable because they tend to stand out and they usually voice themselves more loudly. The largest group migrating to Germany in the last few decades, however, is the repatriating Russian-Germans. Since the wall came down, about 3 million people have come to Germany from Eastern Europe, mostly from Russia — since 1950 the repatriate population totals to more than 4.5 million. Even when most of them have successfully integrated themselves into today’s German society and are no longer distinguishable, they hold onto many of the classic German virtues.

So it’s not surprising that, according to information given by the media, more than 4,500 Russian-Germans took to the streets in Baden-Württemberg on the weekend to demonstrate against violence committed by foreigners. The number is probably much higher.

 

 

Sexual counter-revolution: how the “celibacy syndrome” is ruining the economy of Japan

The Japanese youth no longer wants to go on dates, get married and even have sex. This phenomenon, dubbed “celibacy syndrome”, was recorded a few years ago, and the situation is only getting worse. A natural consequence of the “celibacy syndrome” — what a surprise! — reduction of fertility. In 2015 in Japan came to light one million eight thousand newborns, and one million three hundred two thousand old people died. Some simple calculations show that for the year the population decreased by almost 300 thousand people. According to demographic calculations, there will be 30 per cent less Japanese by mid-century… By the end of 2014, the debt of Japan has reached to 1.03 quadrillion yen. Quadrillion! A normal person need a dictionary to understand that we are talking about the one with 15 zeros. You can transfer this amount to more than the usual US dollars, but no relief will bring. Eight trillion 654 billion dollars too incredibly much.

 

 

This quote from Rick Snyder’s emails says everything you need to know about Flint’s water crisis

While attorneys have subpoenaed all emails and communications between Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder (R) over the ongoing Flint water crisis, a few details have been released showing what can only be described as depraved indifference on the part of state workers to the plight of Flint citizens.

The Republican governor released some staff emails on Jan. 20, showing that he was well aware that Flint citizens were slowly being poisoned following a decision by the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality to force them to live with lead-tainted water.

Those emails, however, were heavily redacted, including one dated over two years ago — on January 3, 2014 — that was completely blacked out by the governor’s advisers over both pages.

Out of over 270 pages of communications released, one comment was stunning in its admission of how shabbily complaints over the water were treated by state workers.

The wanton disregard for human life demonstrated here is just morally ill beyond all comprehension, and everyone who signed off on this should resign en masse, and be prosecuted for reckless endangerment of public health.

 

Media Just Accused Megyn Kelly Of HELPING Trump In A Huge Way, She’s Not Going To Like This…

Multiple media outlets noted how Fox News host Megyn Kelly went after Sens. Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz over changes in their positions on immigration at Thursday night’s Republican presidential debate, and one of those outlets is arguing it is all to the benefit of Donald Trump.

In a piece in Political Magazine on Friday, Michael Grunwald writes that Trump did himself a favor by not attending the debate because Kelly and others did his dirty work for him, with the Iowa caucuses only days away. By Grunwald’s assessment:

What the Father of Lies (Obama) is Hiding About ISIS From You Now

The American people can be called a lot of names, names like “uninformed,” “clueless,” “gullible,” or even “willfully ignorant,” but one name they cannot be referred to by anyone as is: “sissies.” The American people have shown themselves to have a tolerance for pain second to none in the world.

Evidence of Americans’ high pain threshold can be demonstrated when you consider how many times Barack Obama has looked directly into the camera, told pathological lie after pathological lie, and with full knowledge that those very lies put their own families in danger, Americans continue to grin and bear it. Why not just salute him and say, “Thank you sir, may I have another,” like Kevin Bacon’s character famously did in National Lampoon’s Animal House?

 

 

WORLD WAR III – THE NEW AXIS OF EVIL

The alliances and proxies of the Syrian Front explained.
The concept that humanity is teetering on the edge of third world war is no longer the domain of the lunatic fringe.

Those of you who have been paying attention know that in reality, the war is already underway. In this video we’re going examine the profiles of the key players and the alliances they’ve formed, expose their motives, and present evidence of crimes that they’ve already committed. All of our sources will be linked below.

Clearly it is not in the interest of the anti-Assad axis to eliminate ISIS. The United States and France are keen to make a show of airstrikes and special forces, but what they really want is the ability to operate in Syria militarily. This is the only way they’ll have any chance of influencing the outcome.

Taliban Control of Afghanistan Highest Since U.S. Invasion

America’s 14-year project to defeat the Taliban and build a stable Afghanistan is teetering on the brink of failure, according to a sobering report Friday by a government watchdog.

The Taliban controls more of the country than at any time since U.S. troops invaded in 2001, notes the quarterly report to Congress by the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction. The fragile economy is worsening. One of the few bright spots of the troubled reconstruction effort — getting more girls in school — has been tainted by allegations of fraud.

“The lack of security has made it almost impossible for many U.S. and even some Afghan officials to get out to manage and inspect U.S.-funded reconstruction projects,” wrote John Sopko, the inspector general.

This is nothing short of an unmitigated disaster, 14 years on, and now the Pentagon is saying that US military will need to be in Afghanistan for many years to come?!?

What is wrong with this picture?!? Everything.

Right after the start of the invasion, people laughed when I predicted that the US would never leave Afghanistan; but right now, they are not laughing much at all.

 

 

A major earthquake on Kamchatka

01/30/2016 there was an earthquake of 7.3 magnitude on Kamchatka. This was reported on the website of the Kamchatka branch of the Geophysical service of Russian Academy of Sciences. Seismic event was recorded at 15:25 local time (6:25 GMT). Its epicenter was located on land between the volcanoes Karymsky and Zhupanovsky, 93 kilometers North of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatskiy, the center lies at a depth of 187 kilometers. The inhabitants of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatkiy felt tremors force up to six points. People ran out of their houses. The apartments were shaking, the furniture, the books fell from the shelves, reports “Interfax”. In the same area have been reported, according to the latest data, seven aftershocks, and their magnitude was from 2.0 to 4.8. In EMERCOM of Russia for Kamchatskiy Krai reported that there were no human casualties and destruction of buildings.

So here for imagery to form a view about Russia and Russians in Poland. Unfortunately,” Medinskiy added. After the incident aired, the TV station TVP fired the producer Marek Kunkevich due to the fact that he apologized to Medinskiy for the behavior of Maria Pshelomets during the interview.

TURKEY: PROSECUTOR DEMAND LIFE IMPRISONMENT FOR CRITICAL JOURNALISTS

The Turkish public prosecutor demands life sentence for the imprisoned editor in chief of Cumhuriyet because of his anti-government reporting. Even the EU appears to be shocked. Angela Merkel will pay billions to Turkey, for them to keep refugees out of Europe. The Turkish public prosecutor wants to bring two prominent journalists of the government critical newspaper “Cumhuriyet”, for alleged agitation against the government and support of terrorist organizations, for life into prison. The indictment of the Prosecutor’s Office, responsible for terrorist offenses in Istanbul, is accusing the journalists Can Dündar and Erdem Gul of espionage and an attempted coup against the government, the news agency Dogan reported on Wednesday. The arrest of the two journalists in November had triggered outrage in Turkey and other countries…

 

 

LIBYA’S INSTABILITY THREATENS REGIONAL SECURITY

The so-called “national unity government” backed by the UN has almost no influence in the country. The crucial oil infrastructure and the coastal zone are controlled by fragmented factions. Indeed, it’s obvious that US and European diplomats won’t be able to control the Libyan conflict over the long term. A conflict they created themselves. A diplomatic solution could be found through UN procedures and under the supervision of the international community through neutral states such India, Malaysia, Indonesia or even Latin America states. Unfortunately, this type of “neutral approach” is never implemented by the UN. If the US and the EU continue to participate in the conflict, the situation will likely deteriorate. The Libyan scenario is even worse than the situation in Syria and Iraq because the structure of governance is totally destroyed.

IS JORDAN JOINING THE RUSSIA-LED COALITION ?

Syria borders Jordan along its southern and south-eastern border. It is believed that anti-Assad militants receive reinforcements from across the border with Jordan. There is currently heavy fighting in the Daraa province were the SAA is slowly advancing. Two days ago, there were reports of an ISIS offensive along the eastern slope of Kalamon mountains, only a few kilometers from the border with Lebanon. The militants relative success in that sector was due in part to the fact SAA’s main forces are operating in the Kuraitan area, a large city in the south-eastern part of Homs province. Given all that, one cannot help but turn one’s attention to Defense Minister Sergey Shoygu’s two meetings in Moscow, which occurred one after another on the same day, January 28. The first was with Syria’s Defense Minister Fahd Jassem al-Freij, and the second with Jordan’s chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, Mashaal Mukhammed al-Zaben. No details of these meetings were disclosed…

 

 

TERRORISTS ARE FIGHTING EACH OTHER IN LEBANON

It is reported that ISIS and Jabhat Al-Nusra (Al Qaeda in Syria) are now fighting in eastern Lebanon after a break of confrontation to each other inside the ‘Arsal Barrens of the Beqa’a Governorate. On January 27, Wednesday afternoon, several firefights were reported between Jabhat Al-Nusra and ISIS at the villages of Wadi Hamid, Al-Zimrani, Wadi Mira, and Al-Khayl in the ‘Arsal Barrens. These clashes forced both the Lebanese Army and Hezbollah to concentrate their forces to this mountainous region in order to make sure the fighting was not going to spread. According to the reports, ISIS captured several checkpoints and military posts from Nusra front in the ‘Arsal Barrens, resulting in the expansion of their front-line positions to the Lebanese Army’s territory in the region.

Paul Goulter: TPP puts profit ahead of quality education

Imagine an education system where multi-national corporations could set up a school alongside your local public school, and then demand equal access to the taxpayer purse to fund that school.

It’s a likely scenario because global businesses are on the hunt for new ways of getting their fingers into nations’ multi-billion dollar public education purses. And here in New Zealand, the TPPA could provide that opportunity.

Even Singapore, which our education minister has hailed as one of the high performing education systems that we should look towards, has taken the precaution of carving education out of the TPPA deal.

Our negotiators either didn’t manage, or more likely didn’t even try, to get a similar “out” clause for education in New Zealand. As a consequence, they have put at risk the rights of future governments to protect our public education system against any “level-playing field” changes that would disadvantage global edu-businesses.

 

 

TPP economy figures tell us nothing

The Government is throwing numbers at us as it steps up its efforts to sell the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement.

But a trenchant critique of the case it makes compels us to disregard those numbers. It is in a paper, The Economics of the TPPA, authored by Professor Tim Hazledine and Barry Coates of Auckland University’s business school, Victoria University economist Geoff Bertram and business journalist Rod Oram.

The first set of numbers the Government has been brandishing, most recently in this week’s national interest analysis of the agreement, is the amount by which tariffs on New Zealand exports to other TPP countries will be reduced. It rises to $274 million a year when TPP is fully implemented.

 

 

Police door knock ‘known activists’ ahead of TPP protests

Police are checking in on “known activists” around the country ahead of TPP protests later this week.

Scout Barbour-Evans, a Dunedin transgender activist who goes by the gender-neutral pronoun “they”, said an officer knocked on their door about 10 this morning.

The officer wanted to know what the plans were for anti-Trans-Pacific Partnership action in Dunedin, Scout said.

Scout compared the situation to the Springbok tour, saying the increased surveillance feels akin to 1981, particularly following the presence of armed police at Prime Minister John Key’s State of the Nation speech in Auckland yesterday.

Prominent anti-TPP protestor Professor Jane Kelsey said such monitoring of critics to the controversial agreement was “entirely predictable” behaviour from the Government, and shows the “disrespect the Government has had throughout to people’s right to voice their dissent about this negotiation and this agreement”.

 

 

Trans-Pacific Partnership: Ngati Whatua won’t take part in powhiri

Ngati Whatua says it will refuse to take part in any powhiri for international trade ministers when they visit New Zealand to sign the Trans-Pacific Partnership on February 4 because it opposes the agreement.

A spokeswoman said the iwi had not yet been asked if it would take part in the powhiri, but in the past it had done so for visiting dignitaries as it had mana whenua status in central Auckland.

It was letting the Government know ahead of time that it would not take part.

The Web Sites They Don’t Want You To Read: “A Few of These Sites May Be Run By Truly Insane People”

The Fort Liberty web site recently published a list of web destinations that they say distribute wildly unbelievable and bombastic claims with little or no reference material or sourcing.

A few of these web sites may be run by truly insane people who actually believe what they publish, but if so that is a small minority. One of the proofs of this is how obviously fake the articles are.
To suggest that every site on the list offers only fake news, hoaxes or satire is obviously disingenuous, as web sites that made the list such as Infowars.com, Intellihub.com, NaturalNews.com, BeforeItsNews.com and TheDailySheeple.com regularly cite not one, but multiple sources, often directly from the mainstream, for the news reports and commentary they are issuing.

FLASHBACK: LAS VEGAS PREMIERE SET TO EXPOSE BLM MISMANAGEMENT

August 6, 2013 (Las Vegas) – It is no coincidence that the Las Vegas premiere of “Who Are My People?” is on August 13. National Clean Energy Summit 6.0 takes place the same day.

The Secretary of the Interior (Sally Jewell), Secretary of Energy (Dr. Ernest Moniz), Chairman Jon Wellinghoff of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid will be there along with an array of governors, senators, former senators, the CEO of the American Wind Association, the Director of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, etc. will all be at the summit.

Emmy Award winning filmmaker Robert Lundahl invited them to the showing.

“They should be there because they need to understand the impacts of their policies,” Lundahl said. “There is giant disconnect between the polices and the people who make the policies and the impact these policies have on the Native culture, tribes and the environment.”

FBI ‘WOULD LIKE TO INDICT HUMA AND HILLARY’

Public Land Mismanagement

“This legislation guarantees that we will not take our forests, rivers, oceans, national parks, monuments and wilderness areas for granted, but rather we will set them aside and guard their sanctity for everyone to share. That’s something all Americans can support.” Those were the words of President Barack Obama on March 30 when he signed the Omnibus Public Lands Management Act that placed an additional 2 million acres of public land under the federal government’s most stringent use restrictions. To anyone who knows the record of public land management, however, these words of preservation and unanimous support ring hollow.

Her worries are in two broad categories: One is her well-documented failure to safeguard state secrets and the other is her probable use of her position as secretary of state to advance financially her husband’s charitable foundation,” he said. Napolitano has also said it would be “hard to believe” the FBI can avoid indicting Clinton.

 

 

Hillary Emails: NATO Destroyed Libya To Prevent Gold-Backed Dinar

Hillary’s emails truly are the gifts that keep on giving. While France led the proponents of the UN Security Council Resolution that would create a no-fly zone in Libya, it claimed that its primary concern was the protection of Libyan civilians (considering the current state of affairs alone, one must rethink the authenticity of this concern). As many “conspiracy theorists” will claim, one of the real reasons to go to Libya was Gaddafi’s planned gold dinar.

One of the 3,000 Hillary Clinton emails released by the State Department on New Year’s Eve (where real news is sent to die quietly) has revealed evidence that NATO’s plot to overthrow Gaddafi was fueled by first their desire to quash the gold-backed African currency, and second the Libyan oil reserves.

The email in question was sent to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton by her unofficial adviser Sydney Blumenthal titled “France’s client and Qaddafi’s gold”.

When the allegations made by social workers and the officers against the couple reached court, a judge summarily tossed the case. — “The court will not allow [an] exception to sanction warrantless entry into a private residence by pepper spray and Taser. If the officer had a warrant in hand and such force was necessary, that is a different story, but those are not the facts of this case,” the judge said, further ruling that all information gathered by the sheriff and his officer be inadmissible.

In the meantime, good job store owner. He’s definitely taken advantage of his second amendment rights — and the police have acknowledged that a man has a right to defend himself with reasonable force.

 

 

US military finds F-35 software is a buggy mess

The US military’s Office of the Director, Operational Test & Evaluation (DOT&E) has released its latest annual report, and the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter chapter describes the Department of Defense’s efforts in trying to get the project back somewhere close to schedule.

To avoid a cascading series of delays that would have stretched into 2016, the project abandoned an Operational Utility Evaluation (OUE) planned in April 2014 for the Marines’ Block 2B configuration of the aircraft.

The reasoning, explained at Aviation Week, was that Lockheed Martin couldn’t put together enough units in that configuration to run the Block 2B OUE in time. If it had proceeded, the OUE would have been pushed back until 2016, in turn delaying the software development effort for “Block 3F”.

Instead, F-35A test aircraft will be used for a “limited assessment”, the report states.

 

 

British warships need multimillion-pound refit to stop power failures

Spiralling costs of the Type 45 destroyers were criticised by the House of Commons defence committee as early as 2009. The Royal Navy had originally requested 12 ships but the cost of the advanced ships meant the force ended up with just six.

The ships are powered by integrated electric propulsion, using very high-voltage electrics. Warships with electrical failures may be unable to navigate, with the destroyers drifting at sea until power is restored, and weapons systems may be unable to function.

At least one new generator is expected to be needed on each ship, requiring a major refit of a vessel where space is already at a premium.

The work will be furthered hampered by a shortage of marine engineers, which has led to the Royal Navy being forced to recruit from the US Coast Guard. Last year it was estimated that the Royal Navy was short of about 500 engineers, despite also recruiting many from Canada and other Commonwealth nations.

Faced with the stark prospects of being overwhelmed and leaving his mother defenseless, the homeowner retrieved his handgun and shot both intruders. The first intruder made it out the door and died immediately in the yard. The second was ferried away by his getaway driver, who later dumped him off like old baggage in the parking lot of a nearby Zaxby’s.

 

 

Hillary Clinton Brags About Getting Her Marching Orders From The CFR

For those who may be unaware, the Council on Foreign Relations is essentially a sister organization to the Royal Institute of International Affairs, one of the primary Anglo-American policy developers, and functions as one of the most effective direct control mechanisms in the world in regards to government-based decisions and governmental policy. It is from the RIIA and the CFR, as well as the other relevant sister organizations set up in nations all across the world, that the direction in which the world will go is decided and implemented through a number of other front organizations, conferences, publications, foundations, and NGOs.

Politicians – Senators, Congressmen, Presidents, Prime Ministers, Parliamentarians – all attend their relevant organization’s functions, participate in “discussions” and hold memberships in their CFR-related clubs for the purposes of receiving their “marching orders” from their bosses. As one might suspect, this is no different for Hillary Clinton.

4,500 Russian-Germans Demonstrate Against Migrant Crime in Baden-Württemberg

The Russian immigrant community in Germany may have more balls than the post-’45 sissyfied native population.Many assume that Turks make up the largest immigrant group [in Germany]. This impression is understandable because they tend to stand out and they usually voice themselves more loudly. The largest group migrating to Germany in the last few decades, however, is the repatriating Russian-Germans. Since the wall came down, about 3 million people have come to Germany from Eastern Europe, mostly from Russia — since 1950 the repatriate population totals to more than 4.5 million. Even when most of them have successfully integrated themselves into today’s German society and are no longer distinguishable, they hold onto many of the classic German virtues. So it’s not surprising that, according to information given by the media, more than 4,500 Russian-Germans took to the streets in Baden-Württemberg on the weekend to demonstrate against violence committed by foreigners.

Now Among Largest Firearms Investors, Soros in Gun Control Scheme to Dump Stocks: “I’m Very Much Against Guns”

Stay vigilant; the right to keep and bear arms is under sneak attack.

Advocates for divesting from the firearms industry got a boost from Wall Street titan George Soros last week. The billionaire investor is in a strong position to make such a call: He’s one of the leading financiers of the gun control movement, and the fund he leads recently owned a piece of the firearms industry.

Soros expressed interest in the divestment idea: “I’m very much against guns. And if it can be organized on a large enough scale, I wouldn’t be opposed to it.”

You have now landed in Geneva, Syria

Let’s start with last summer, when Iranian Quds Force superstar commander Qasem Soleimani laid down the law, in person, in Moscow, establishing without a doubt the grim situation across the Syrian theater of war.

Essentially Soleimani told the Kremlin and Russian intelligence that Aleppo might be about to fall; that Jabhat al-Nusra was at the doors of southern Damascus; that Idlib had fallen; and Latakia – home to Russia’s naval base at Tartus – would be next.

One can imagine the effect of this jolt of realpolitik on President Putin’s mind. That clinched his resolution to stop the fall of Syria, and prevent it from becoming a Libyan remix.

It’s easy to pinpoint who’s livid with all the Russian action: Saudi Arabia, Turkey and – last but not least – the ‘Empire of Chaos’, all at the table in Geneva.

This is about to get very nasty very quickly, until we have some adults in the room ratcheting the tensions down here.

Turkey is a NATO member, and if attacked by Russia, may well – as is its privilege as a NATO member – invoke Article 5 of the NATO CHARTER, which states that when one member is attacked, it is as though all NATO members are attacked, and must come to the aid of the attacked party.

This potentially places NATO against Russia, in a military military conflict which will have intense international repercussions.

Let’s say, we are looking at the fuse well and truly lit for World War III for real.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!

“We will not have any more crashes in our time.” — John Maynard Keynes (1927)

Pentagon Seeks ‘Hundreds More’ US Troops in Iraq and Syria

Last week, Pentagon officials were talking up a few hundred additional “trainers” for the ISIS war in Iraq and Syria. This appears to have just been the start, as reports now suggest that over the last several weeks, the Pentagon has sought another 800 US troops for the war.

800 would be a big deployment for a war in which the “no boots on the ground” mantra has continued to be repeated by the administration, so the plan is to split this up over several deployments. Over the past 18 months, the US has brought some 3,700 troops into Iraq, over a large number of small escalations.

Absent from the Pentagon push for ever more troops is the question of if the Iraqi government will go along with it. Several times in the past they’ve expressed annoyance at the US announcing escalations before asking them, and several Shi’ite militias in Iraq have complained that the US presence is already far too large.

It appears that the White House, Pentagon, and State Department are, collectively, suffering from SMD (Selective Memory Disorder), and I can demonstrate very clearly why.

Fact: Iraq doesn’t want more US military troops.

And does anyone beside me happen to remember the Shiite Cleric, Muqtada Al Sadr?!?

Does anyone else beside me in Foggy Bottom, any adults in the room there remember the Mahdi militia he used to lead?!?

Does anyone beside me in DC remember that he threatened, if US troops did not leave PRECISELY on the date stipulated in the SOFA Agreement with Iraq, that our military would be “fair game” for his militia?!?

How happy is this guy going to be with more American deployments coming to his country?

And the question which SHOULD be keeping Sec Def Carter awake at nights is, how long would it take for this man to “get the band back together”, i.e., how long would it take him to reconstitute the Mahdi militia?!?

Unfortunately, should he choose to do so, the logical short answer is, not long at all.

So let’s turn our attention to Syria.

ISIS, US government trained and funded, was established to create regime change in this country.

Basshar Al-Assad, Syria’s president, invited Russia to get rid of all the jihadists in his country, including ISIS.

The escalation of an American military presence will GUARANTEE, at some point or another, a military confrontation with Russia, which is a really, really bad idea.

The US military does not have the troop strength, the money, or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war against Russia, and that is what makes the military option so scarily dangerous.

I have become singularly disenchanted with a Federal Government which sees war as the only way to get what it wants, rather than good faith, hard-won negotiations, and appears to be hell-bent on preserving and enhancing the wealth of the 1%, even at the cost of sheer misery for most of the rest of us, in doing so.

All I can tell you, is that something wicked this way comes; and unfortunately, the US Federal Government will be both morally practically responsible for generating Big Mistake # III.

 

 

Anti NATO Protest in Bulgaria (VIDEO)

On the 28th January, in the Bulgarian capital, about a thousand people took part in a spontaneous protest against lawlessness in the country. National flags, portraits of Bulgarian national heroes as Vasil Levski, Hristo Botev, Ivan Vazov and posters with slogans “NATO get out of our country”, “Stop the US occupation,” could be seen today outside parliament. Resentment exploded in the last few days due to attempts to rewrite history after Bulgaria remembered the terrible 500 years of Turkish rule. Specifically, it is suggested that slavery under the Turks is called “presence” or even “cooperation” with the Turks, as well as attempts to remove great Bulgarian authors from school textbooks. People rebelled and came out in defense of its history. This attack on the history is considered by many as the dictatorship of the United States, who does not hesitate to openly interfere in the internal politics of the country and to impose their will.

Russia’s EU envoy doubts Turkey’s intention to close border with Syria

“It would be naive to think that Turkey is pulling in its troops toward the [Turkish-Syrian] border to block it,” he said. Chizhov said the EU-Turkish relations are “a rather complicated issue,” with negotiating processes on many issues connected with Turkey being protracted, in particular, the issue of Turkey’s admission to the EU. “On the other hand, Turkey is not hurrying to establish migrant accommodation centers. The EU has promised… €3 billion to the Turks, but it is not hurrying to open up its purse,” he said.

Russia supports Syrian Kurds’ participation in the intra-Syrian talks — diplomat

“Those [oppositionists] who met in Moscow and Cairo agreed to stand together. This Moscow-Cairo group demands representatives of the Syrian Kurds be invited to the talks. We support this idea since it looks impossible to discuss the agenda without Syrian Kurds. Some regional powers insist on excluding the Kurds. We believe we should not yield to this blackmail.” According to the diplomat, the meeting between UN Special Envoy on Syria Staffan de Mistura with the Damascus official delegation is the main result of the first day of the Geneva talks. “The arrival of the Syrian government delegation and its meeting with de Mistura is the main result of the first day of talks. It signals that the [Syrian] government has taken a constructive approach and will be constructive in seeking the achievement of positive results in the interests of the Syrian people,” the diplomat said.

 

Rouhani: US, Iran Must Work Together to Calm Middle East

With the lifting of sanctions, Iran is poised to play a more active role in international diplomacy. During his visit to Italy, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani stressed that if the United States has any hope of solving conflicts in the Middle East, it needs Tehran’s help.

President Rouhani is conducting a four-day visit to Rome and Paris to shore up international business contracts, now that Iran is no longer isolated by sanctions.

Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani gestures at the conclusion of his press conference, in Tehran, Iran, Sunday, Jan. 17, 2016. The implementation of a historic nuclear deal with world powers is expected to pave the way for a new economic reality in Iran, now freed from harsh international sanctions

Iran to Push Long-Awaited Trade with Europe After Lifting Sanctions
Speaking in Rome, the president stated his hope that Tehran and Washington can work together to solve regional problems in the Middle East.

President Rouhani is absolutely correct in his assessment; however, with Israeli pressure consistently working against this kind of rapprochement, unfortunately, it may only happen when pigs fly.

 

 

Donetsk republic militia report 153 episodes of shelling by Kiev forces over past day

“Ukrainian troops opened fire at the republic’s territory 153 times. As a result, they committed 23 violations of the ceasefire regime. Ukrainian troops used tanks, mortars of 82mm and 120mm caliber, armored personnel carriers, anti-aircraft systems, anti-tank guns and firearms,” the Donetsk News Agency quoted him as saying. According to the DPR defense ministry, the settlements of Trudovskiye in Donetsk’s western suburb, Zhabichevo, Lozovsky and Spartak, as well as the area of the Volvo Center in the vicinity of the former Donetsk airport, the airport and the village of Naberezhnoye came under fire. Earlier, the DPR defense ministry reported 148 episodes of shelling along the engagement line in Donbass by Ukrainian troops on Thursday.

 

 

Russian weapons exported to Fiji at its official request — foreign ministry

Russian weapons are being supplied to Fiji at the official request from that country and will be used to boost the efficiency of a peacekeeping mission in the Golan Heights, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Friday. “Reports about more ‘Russian traces’ spotted, this time, in the south of the Pacific have turned to be another failure of conspiracy theorists,” she said. “A batch of Russian small arms and munitions is being supplied to Fiji at the official request of that country. These weapons will be used by Fiji’s mechanized infantry battalion which part of the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) deployed in the Golan Heights.” Russia will expand comprehensive practical cooperation with Fiji and other southern Pacific states, including in the military technical sphere. “Such cooperation is not meant to interfere into their domestic affairs and is not aimed against third countries”.

 

 

Pentagon Looking for ‘Worthy Partners’ to Fight Daesh in Libya

The United States has deployed military personnel to Libya in an effort to establish contact with militias and other forces that Washington may be able to back in the fight against Daesh, the Pentagon said on Wednesday.

Pentagon press secretary Peter Cook told reporters that there is a “small” presence of US military personnel in Libya seeking to establish contact with various militias and other factions to “get a better sense of who the players are” and “who might be worthy of US support.”

Cook refused to say if the military personnel included US soldiers.

Translation: the US government is looking for proxy fighters to do our killing for us, and just as savagely viciously as the Saudis are doing in Yemen, where schools, hospitals, residences, and ambulances are targeted, and innocent civilians are getting assassinated by the hundreds.

Obama creates cancer ‘moonshot’ task force — with Biden at the helm

President Obama established a White House Cancer Moonshot Task Force Thursday, giving a formal structure to Vice President Biden’s mission to “end cancer as we know it.”

The cancer “moonshot” was one of the few substantive policy proposals of Obama’s last State of the Union address this month, when he announced that he would put his vice president “in charge of Mission Control.” It’s been a priority for Biden since his son, former Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden, died of brain cancer last May.

In a statement Thursday, Biden laid out an ambitious goal for the task force, which he hoped would continue into the next administration: “To make a decade worth of advances in five years.”

“We’re not trying to make incremental change here,” he said in a post on the web site Medium. “We’re trying to get to a quantum leap on the path to a cure.”

Sounds great, doesn’t it?!?!?

But here’s the problem, and it’s all about the money; a cure would, in essence, be a one-visit, or several short visits to the doctor, which would provide the cancer industrial complex with far less money than it gets through the regimens of burning, poisoning, or performing surgery to create a state of remission of cancer.

The cancer industrial complex is NOT going to be very happy about that loss of revenue, not one bit.

And in many instances I have seen with friends and family who have been treated conventionally, the cancer comes back, even more aggressively, after the first cancer is alleged to have been successfully treated, and is in remission.

But if President Obama and Vice-President Obama want to do something right now to enhance cancer prevention, here is what they should be doing:

  1. Eliminating all GMOS from American food.
    http://undergroundhealthreporter.com/genetically-modified-foods/#axzz3yewYx7VS
  2. Making sure that glyphosate is not sprayed on cotton, which is later processed into women’s sanitary products, like tampons and pads. Glyphosate is a known carcinogen, and for women to be forced to use products upon which this poison has sprayed is…criminal.
    https://www.rt.com/usa/319524-tampons-cotton-glyphosate-monsanto/
  3. Really evaluating the safety, and efficacy of vaccines before they are allowed to be given to people. The side effects of vaccines have been known to cause autism, and cancer.

HSBC online banking is ‘attacked’

HSBC says it “successfully defended” an attack on its online banking system but services are disrupted on a key day for many people’s personal finances.

The bank is apologising to customers trying to login to its online banking which, for many, is unavailable.

It is not the first time this month that HSBC customers have faced a suspension of the service. HSBC customers faced two days of problems with online banking at the start of January.
