Top Ebola Scientist in Liberia: ‘Ebola outbreak may represent a new strain that is more contagious’

 

 

Confronting Doctor Death

Following leads on the anthrax trail took us across four continents – filming outside the high security perimeter fences of some of the world’s most secret germ war labs (and inside a couple), tracking down and talking to experts and scientists some of whom were members of the so called “International Bio-Weapons Mafia”.

 

 

Bill O’Reilly thinks poor people are greedier than rich people

Today’s stunning example of someone projecting all of his own sins and insecurities out onto liberals is Bill O’Reilly, lecturing people who vote for Democrats because we’re supposedly selfish greed heads who are trying to vote goodies for themselves. Goodies like “food” and “not dying”. All the luxuries.

 

 

Do these ten pieces of evidence prove the U.S. government is actively encouraging an Ebola outbreak in America?

The more closely our team investigates the facts about Ebola here at Natural News, the more I’m convinced the United States government is intentionally trying to increase the spread of the outbreak rather than contain it. I realize this assertion may sound outlandish, but review the evidence below and decide for yourself. This story is extensively sourced with verifiable links.

As microbiologist Dr. Gil Mobley recently said in protest of all the lies and disinformation, “CDC is lying! … [and] If they’re not lying, they are grossly incompetent.” [1]

The U.S. War On Terrorism

Not only did the “world change” on that day, but the lexicon of that world changed as well. Phrases like ‘war on terror’ and ‘axis of evil’ became the new stereotypes of American foreign policy. Al-Qaeda went from legitimate enemy to a scapegoat-like collective term for anything the White House and Pentagon wanted to achieve. More money? Yes, it’s necessary to continue the war on terror. More troops? Yes, to battle Al- Qaeda and prevent attacks on American soil. Since 2001, the military’s cumulative spending has reached a staggering $6 TRILLION. The war in Iraq has so far cost the United States $140 billion just in interest.

(Graphic : The U.S. war on terrorism/causalities (RT ©))
Many were content to blame all this on the war machine of the Bush administration, and many Americans hoped that with Barack Obama a new, more peaceful, era would begin. But despite their differences, there are just too many eerie similarities between the two.

ISIS Video: America’s Air Dropped Weapons Now in Our Hands

In a new video, ISIS shows American-made weapons it says were intended for the Kurds but actually were air dropped into territory they control.

At least one bundle of U.S. weapons airdropped in Syria appears to have fallen into the hands of ISIS, a dangerous misfire in the American mission to speed aid to Kurdish forces making their stand in Kobani.

Big Money Playing an Outsized Role in Primary Elections

In congressional primaries, bigger wallets give a small set of mega-donors an outsized voice, according to new information released today by U.S. PIRG Education Fund and Demos. Just 5,485 donors who gave $1,000 or more to candidates in the primaries outspent the at least 440,362 small donors who gave less than $200, and 65 percent of all candidate contributions came from donors giving chunks of $1,000 or more.

McDonalds Sales Plunge In Worst Month Since 2003 Following Dollar Meal “Sticker Shock”

But while collapsing MCD sales are a combination of both the insolvent US consumer, who can no longer afford to buy either MCD or Coke (as we commented earlier) especially after purchasing the latest and greatest iThing on credit, as well as shifting tastes and eating the “cool food du jour”, things are only going to get worse from here.

Because in a world that is allegedly flooded with deflation, the one place where everyone considered safe for “dollar meals”, just got more expensive.

Plus the food is so full of fillers you can practically taste the sawdust!

 

 

Statement by RN’s at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital as provided to National Nurses United

When Thomas Eric Duncan first came into the hospital, he arrived with an elevated temperature, but was sent home.

On his return visit to the hospital, he was brought in by ambulance under the suspicion from him and family members that he may have Ebola.

Mr. Duncan was left for several hours, not in isolation, in an area where other patients were present.

No one knew what the protocols were or were able to verify what kind of personal protective equipment should be worn and there was no training.

Subsequently a nurse supervisor arrived and demanded that he be moved to an isolation unit– yet faced resistance from other hospital authorities.

Lab specimens from Mr. Duncan were sent through the hospital tube system without being specially sealed and hand delivered. The result is that the entire tube system by which all lab specimens are sent was potentially contaminated.

October 22: National Protest Against The Police State

Activist Post

Every single day carries a new story (or stories) about egregious assaults by police against the citizens who have entrusted (and paid) them to serve and protect. Even the Bureau of Justice Statistics had to conclude recently that police brutality is grossly unchecked across the nation by the political system. Such unchecked power is even more frightening when we see police becoming as militarized as any Third World dictatorship. And of course, to back up this lawlessness is a ready-and-waiting prison-industrial complex that leads the world in caging its own citizens.

Shooting pets, tasering kids, no-knock SWAT raids, raping, pillaging … you name it – and it will only get worse until people have the courage to take action in huge numbers and put a stop to this madness that has been tolerated for way too long.

 

 

FLASHBACK

It seems obvious that the Kiev Fascist NAZI junta has been given its war instructions by the American and the British elites and that those instructions include orders to provoke Russia into military hostilities with the Ukrainian Fascists. Russia supports the East Ukrainians but there is no proof it controls their activities. In fact there has been dissension between Russia and the breakaway East Ukrainians. It is doubtful the Russians will take the bait because they have been up many more historical dry gullies than the Americans and have a government in place which consists of mature, commonsensical and rational politicians, unlike Washington. The western mainstream media , too, is trying every trick in the book to lay the blame for this Ukrainian mess at the feet of Russia, which is not responsible for the Ukrainian mess and which has shown remarkable restraint in the face of American and western lies and provocation. It was the West which supported and encouraged the coup de tat which overthrew the democratically elected Ukrainian government and replaced it with the unelected NAZI Fascists which hold power now in Kiev.

Many young Australians and others from the West died to defeat NAZISM, and now the Australian government and the West are supporting a Ukrainian dictatorship which includes Neo NAZIs…………..KT

 

 

Russia Won’t Accept Terms to End Sanctions Over Ukraine

Russia’s foreign minister said his country won’t accept conditions to end sanctions after talks in Italy failed to produce a breakthrough over the truce in Ukraine’s conflict-ridden east.

Russia has been told to comply with various criteria before the U.S. and its allies revoke the limitations, Sergei Lavrov said in a transcript of an NTV interview posted yesterday on the ministry’s website. The cease-fire in Ukraine’s easternmost regions, sealed Sept. 5, was broken several times during the past 24 hours, with two soldiers and 14 pro-Russian fighters dying, the military said today.

19 Very Surprising Facts About The Messed Up State Of The U.S. Economy

Barack Obama and the Federal Reserve are lying to you. The “economic recovery” that we all keep hearing about is mostly just a mirage. The percentage of Americans that are employed has barely budged since the depths of the last recession, the labor force participation rate is at a 36 year low, the overall rate of homeownership is the lowest that it has been in nearly 20 years and approximately 49 percent of all Americans are financially dependent on the government at this point. In a recent article, I shared 12 charts that clearly demonstrate the permanent damage that has been done to our economy over the last decade. The response to that article was very strong. Many people were quite upset to learn that they were not being told the truth by our politicians and by the mainstream media. Sadly, the vast majority of Americans still have absolutely no idea what is being done to our economy.

The biggest reality check, for Mike and me, is just going grocery shopping.

Yesterday, I was looking at the relatively small amount of groceries we got, for which we paid a Wiemar-republic sized bill, and the correlation between what we got, and what we paid for it was completely out of whack.

I do not know how people with families are making it, except to get the cheapest foods possible, most probably poisoned with GMO.

And those people who, as their government and banks told them to, have saved all their lives, to see their savings eaten away by inflation?!? They are probably never, ever going to believe anything that any government agency happens to tell them, even, if by wild chance, it is true.

Argentinian Ambassador demands apology from the BBC for Jeremy Clarkson’s claims over Top Gear’s H982 FLK number plate

The BBC today faced calls to apologise for a Top Gear ‘stunt’ from Argentina’s ambassador in London.

Alicia Castro has lodged a formal complaint to the Corporation over Jeremy Clarkson’s ‘provocative behaviour and offensive remarks’ after filming in Argentina.

Top Gear’s crew had to leave the country after trouble erupted when it emerged they were using a Porsche with the registration number H982 FKL, which some people suggested could refer to the Falklands conflict of 1982.

The snowplough driver blamed for the air crash which killed the chief executive of oil giant Total has denied being drunk at the wheel of his vehicle.

Vladimir Martynenkov’s lawyer insisted his client was not guilty of causing the air crash which killed Christophe de Margerie and three others and totally denied the ‘groundless’ accusation that Mr Martynenkov was drunk.

The denials seem to imply Mr Martynenkov believes he is being framed. After 24 hours in detention so far, he is today expected to be formally arrested, allowing investigators to question him over a longer period.

 

 

Mainstream ‘Journalist’ Reveals Agenda; Calls For Rape, Destruction of Syria

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post

It is well-known among informed observers and virtually anyone that has even the smallest shred of discernment that mainstream media outlets are nothing more than the mouthpieces for their respective governments, banks, and corporations. These outlets act as a clear propaganda machine drumming up the beat for war by the presentation of clever narratives, subtle falsehoods, and outright lies.

Such deceit relies on the trust of a beguiled public who simply cannot fathom the idea that they are being lied to on such a mass scale. Indeed, the secrecy of the true agenda is what gives propaganda its power. So it is very rare that mainstream outlets, their “journalists,” or other major figures openly state the agenda that is behind their reporting and gives purpose to their every word.

 

 

Nuclear Deal with Iran 95% Complete

I’m guardedly optimistic about the negotiations. They are probably about 95 percent done. The 5 percent that remains has quite a bit that might be difficult in it, I will admit that. The three principal parts of it that are going to be difficult are the number of centrifuges that Iran will be allowed to keep and operate. Second, what exactly does lifting sanctions mean? Of course, this is the Iranian perspective. And then, lastly, how long will this last? Will it last five years, ten years, 15, or 20?

“The only thing that remains to finish the deal is that Iran must admit they are making nuclear weapons, that they hate Israel, that they did 9-11, shot Kennedy and Lincoln, and personally nailed Jesus to the cross and framed the Jews for it! — Nodding Yahoo

Soros and the CIA Now Banking on Neves to Defeat Rousseff

President Rousseff’s policies have created powerful enemies within the walls of the CIA in Langley, Virginia and among the board rooms of Wall Street and the West’s most powerful corporations. She succeeded in proving the polls and pundits wrong on October 5 but October 26 remains yet another hurdle.

With Brazilian voters wise to Silva’s puppet strings to Soros and other global bankers, she managed to only come in third on October 5. Silva subsequently endorsed Neves, Soros’s second selection to take over the reins of presidential power in Brazil from Rousseff.

Neves’s chief economic adviser and the man who would become Finance Minister in a Neves presidency is Arminio Fraga Neto. A former close friend and associate of Soros and his Quantum hedge fund.

CDC Plans To Route Future U.S. Ebola Patients To Specially Trained Hospitals

In the event that another person in the United States tests positive for Ebola, they could be re-routed to one of a handful of hospitals that are specifically equipped and trained to deal with deadly viruses like Ebola, confirmed Centers for Disease Control and Prevention director Dr. Tom Frieden during a press conference on Oct. 20.

Up to three Ebola-infected travelers might fly each month

Up to three Ebola-infected travelers might board an international flight each month in West Africa, according to a new study, and potentially spread the deadly virus to other countries.

Scientists used a model to predict that, on average, three people who are infected with Ebola will leave Guinea, Liberia or Sierra Leone in each of the coming months to fly to another country. They based their model on scheduled flights for September 1 to December 31, 2014, historic flight itineraries from 2013, and Ebola surveillance numbers from the current outbreak. The results were published in The Lancet this week.

Global Justice or World Domination

Did the war on Yugoslavia mark the beginning of WW3?

A short period of global partnership is being replaced by an increasing global distrust. Is there any readiness to seek just compromises in resolving outstanding problems and revert to general interests of the humanity, as embodied in peace and progress for all peoples and nations?

Ebola 2014 is Mutating as Fast as Seasonal Flu

The current Ebola 2014 virus is mutating at a similar rate to seasonal flu (Influenza A). This means the current Ebola outbreak has a very high intrinsic rate of viral mutation. The bottom line is that the Ebola virus is changing rapidly, and in the intermediate to long term (3 months to 24 months), Ebola has the potential to evolve.

We cannot predict exactly what the Ebola virus will look like in 24 months. There is an inherent stochastic randomness to viral evolution which makes predictions on future viral strains difficult, if not impossible. One basic tenet we can rely on is this: Viruses tend to maximize their infectivity (basic reproduction number) within their biological constraints (Nowak, 2006).

The good news is that over time, viruses evolve to become more infective but less harmful, as a virus that kills its host is less likely to propegate.

Ebola 14: False negative ebola tests – denials, wrong analytical methods or criminal falsification of results

On July 19, Moussa Kotuneh fell sick after returning to Pujehun from a trip to Kenema. Immediately, the ambulance was called, and he was taken to the testing site in Daru, 25 kilometers away. He was tested and declared free of the disease. He was sent home with a document declaring him Ebola free. The staff suggested he be observed for the next 21 days in case he got worse.

Jefrey Morison is a trained community health worker who grew up in Pujehun. He spoke with people after Kotuneh came back. “There was lots of confusion about what to do,” he said. The document said he did not have Ebola, but Jefrey urged everyone in the town to be vigilant. “I said, ‘You must continue to isolate him.’”

Kotuneh got worse, and he died soon after returning to Pujehun.

a close friend of Kotuneh’s died, and the villagers called the ambulance team again. This time, the ambulance took six suspected contacts away to isolation. Days later, they were all dead.

 

 

Prozac may be harming bird populations, study suggests

Increasing consumption of antidepressant drugs may be helping humans but damaging the health of the bird population, according to a new study.

An expert who has looked at the effects of passive Prozac-taking on starlings says it has changed not only their feeding habits but also their interest in mating.

Dr Kathryn Arnold, an ecologist from the University of York, said: “Females who’d been on it were not interested in the male birds we introduced them to. They sat in the middle of the cage, not interested at all.”

Arnold’s research, which is investigated on BBC2’s Autumnwatch, took her to sewage works where birds flock to feed.

Ukraine Used Cluster Bombs, Evidence Indicates

The Ukrainian Army appears to have fired cluster munitions on several occasions into the heart of Donetsk, unleashing a weapon banned in much of the world into a rebel-held city with a peacetime population of more than one million, according to physical evidence and interviews with witnesses and victims.

Sites where rockets fell in the city on Oct. 2 and Oct. 5 showed clear signs that cluster munitions had been fired from the direction of army-held territory, where misfired artillery rockets still containing cluster bomblets were found by villagers in farm fields.

The two attacks wounded at least six people and killed a Swiss employee of the International Red Cross based in Donetsk.

Obama Administration controls press-pool reports, determining what information journalists are allowed to share

Veteran Washington journalists and reporters, when they are being honest, will tell you that the current administration is the most political in modern history. Everything is about the proper messaging; optics are much more important, and policy is designed around perpetuating Democratic power.

What they will also tell you is that this White House is so concerned about messaging that it will go to any length to shape it, and that includes pressuring reporters, threatening them with loss of access and, yes, even spying on them (and their parents). It also includes savaging critics.

 

 

Christian Evangelicals’ mass aliyah push touches Jewish nerve

It was the early Jewish nationalist Nathan Birnbaum who coined the term “Zionism” in 1890 to describe the movement to establish a secular Jewish state in Palestine. The idea’s essence was defined in the very name of the journal he published to advance the cause: “Self-Emancipation!”

But now, the largest evangelical Christian group supporting Israel is set to independently take on a mission long seen as central to this self-conception: promoting, funding and implementing mass aliyah, or immigration, of large numbers of Jews to Israel from their native countries.

“A person wearing a Citizens for a Better Arizona T-shirt dropped a large box of hundreds of early ballots on the table and started stuffing the ballot box as I watched in amazement,” said A.J. LaFaro, chairman of the Maricopa County Republican Party.

If a government cannot prove the honesty and accuracy of the elections by which they claim authority over the people, then the people are neither legally nor morally obligated to obey that government’s dictates nor to pay its bills nor to send their children to die in that government’s wars, and may with full moral justification resist with lethal force efforts to coerce said obedience, looting, and conscription.

Will Our Private Savings Be Sacrificed To Pay Down The Public Debt?

Recently, an article by Daniel Amerman caught our attention. Titled Is There A “Back Door” Method For The Government To Pay Down The Federal Debt Using Private Savings?, it details the process known as financial repression, where sovereign debts are slowly paid off by syphoning private savings from an unaware populace.

The last official act of any government is to loot the nation.

 

 

Is The US Government The Master Criminal Of Our Time?

UPDATE: As I read this notice from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the US National Institutes of Health, the US Government and Pharmaceutical corporations have been conducting ebola tests on humans. http://clinicaltrials.gov/show/NCT02041715

This is official confirmation of Dr. Boyle and Dr. Broderick’s reports that the US government has conducted ebola experiments. Perhaps the vaccine was not effective, and those on whom the experiment was conducted came down with ebola and perhaps also employees in the US bio-warfare laboratories located in Africa where the experiment was conducted.

It appears that the test consists of giving an ebola vaccine and then exposing the unaware person to ebola, apparently an engineered version for bio-warfare. Whatever the tests are, it is clear that Boyle and Broderick in their articles below are correct that experimentation with ebola by the US government is underway.

 

 

Ebola outbreak: Famine approaches – bringing a fresh nightmare to West Africa

Sierra Leone’s fields are without farmers. Its crops go un-reaped. In the quarantine areas, feeding is patchy – some get food, others don’t. People then leave the enforced isolation in search of a meal, so Ebola spreads. In three West African countries where many already live a hand-to-mouth existence, the act of eating is increasingly rare.

The area of the sighting was reported to be Jungfrufjärden, a fjard near the settlement of Dalarö south of Stockholm.

However, an investigation carried out by Sweden’s public broadcaster SVT showed that no locations in the area matched the photograph. After being confronted by the SVT’s journalists, Swedish forces admitted issuing false information to avoid “helping foreign powers”.

The Troubling Arguments from the Gov’t in Smith v. Obama NSA Spying Case

We’ve filed our reply brief in the appeal of Smith v. Obama, our case challenging the NSA’s mass telephone records collection on behalf of Idaho nurse Anna Smith. The case will be argued before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeal on December 8, 2014 in Seattle, and the public is welcome to attend.

Another case challenging the telephone records program, Klayman v. Obama, will be argued on November 4 in Washington DC before the DC Circuit and EFF will be participating as an amicus.

We thought we’d highlight three of the more outrageous arguments the government made, and our responses debunking them…

The Block the Boat coalition of Los Angeles claimed another victory this weekend after an Israeli cargo ship, the Zim Savannah, delayed docking at the port of Long Beach for at least 34 hours.

Cookie Partansky, an organizer with the LA Block the Boat coalition, told The Electronic Intifada that approximately 150 activists gathered at the Los Angeles port at 6am on Saturday, 18 October. The morning’s action followed weeks of communication with the longshoremen’s union and educating workers about Israel’s brutal occupation of Palestine, as well as the group’s reasons for targeting Zim, an Israeli shipping line.

An Israeli military general admitted that the army failed to achieve its military goals during the recent war on Gaza.

Yaakov Amidror, the former national security advisor, said: “Despite the limited military capabilities of Palestinian organisations, Israel failed to achieve significant gains during their ground offensive in the Gaza Strip although it used all of its military power and pulled all of its efforts. With all of this, they failed to break through the Palestinians’ defence lines which succeeded in neutralising many of the air force and armed forces’ efforts.”

 

 

We Spent $7.6 Billion To Crush The Afghan Opium Trade—And It’s Doing Better Than Ever

Opium poppy cultivation in Afghanistan is at record levels, according to a new report from the Office of the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction. That’s despite more than a decade of American efforts to knock out the Afghan drug trade—at a cost of roughly $7.6 billion.

In Bo Gritz “A Nation Betrayed”, it was revealed that money sent to Vietnam to “fight drugs” was actually spent building a modern highway up to Kuhn Sa’s opium plantation to allow large trucks to transport the opium to the airports where CIA’s Air America then carried it on the first leg of its journey to the US. I suspect that what that $7 billion was actually spent on is not what you were told it was.

What Is Wrong With Gareth Porter – An Interview

The Buzzfeed article is a very sad piece. It conveys an image of a weak human being desperate to save his reputation. In order to do so he tries every trick he knows. Sadly, he achieves the opposite. In his attempt to smear Mark Glenn, the man behind The Ugly Truth Radio Network, Porter quotes Glenn out of context. He fails to comply with even the minimum journalistic standard of fairness and provide a URL reference for his quotation. One would expect this from Dershowitz, but not from a ‘progressive dissident’.

The crucial question not answered by his article, is who is Porter trying to appease? Why does he defame Mark Glenn who didn’t even attend the conference? Is it possible that veteran progressive journalist Porter is breaching every journalist ethic just to convey the image that he is committed to Jewish primary interests?

It’s clear that the gold-hoarding, ISIS-funding, Ebola-creating international bankers are bent on destroying America.

At their core they are Nazis, so the black Obama provides the perfect fall guy. There is but one rabbit which Obama can pull out of the hat which will prevent both his and our demise.

He must nationalize the Federal Reserve. And he must do it now.

Obama won’t do it. Presidents who stand up to the bankers get shot at, and Obama lacks courage.

“Anti-Petrodollar” CEO Of French Energy Giant Total Dies In Freak Plane Crash In Moscow

Three months ago, the CEO of Total, Christophe de Margerie, dared utter the phrase heard around the petrodollar world, “There is no reason to pay for oil in dollars,” as we noted here. Today, RT reports the dreadful news that he was killed in a business jet crash at Vnukovo Airport in Moscow after the aircraft hit a snow-plough on take-off. The airport issued a statement confirming “a criminal investigation has been opened into the violation of safety regulations,” adding that along with 3 crewmembers on the plane, the snow-plough driver was also killed.

How convenient. Because if the runway was cleared for the plane to use, there was no need for the snowplough to be sent out there. So, who gave that order?

Three lawsuits have made it to U.S. Circuit Courts, just one step from the Supreme Court, arguing that the text of the Affordable Care Act allows premium subsidies for state-run exchanges only.

This follows warnings from largely Labour politicians that “English votes for English laws” reforms that are backed by Mr Cameron would turn Scottish MPs into “second class” representatives in the House of Commons.

The man who allegedly struck the two was killed after a police chase. He had become “radicalized” and was known to federal authorities, the Prime Minister’s Office said Monday.

Israel has been crying Iran’s nuclear wolf since the 1980s, and it has never happened. Add to that the fact that Iran has not launched a war of aggression against another country in 200 years, and Israel’s accusations have never been credible, especially as Israel’s own nuclear perfidy becomes known. Netanyahu has made a caricature of himself with his cartoon bomb at the UN, and three gratuitous attacks on Gaza have forever destroyed Israel’s PR image as perpetual victim.

 

 

Ultra-Orthodox Jews attack Jerusalem buses over ad

JERUSALEM (AP) — Dozens of ultra-Orthodox Jews hurled stones and slashed the tires of buses bearing ads promoting female worship at a key Jerusalem holy site, Israeli police said Tuesday.

The attack, which happened on Monday night in Jerusalem’s ultra-Orthodox Mea Shearim neighborhood, underscores the still simmering tensions in Israel over religious extremists who want to separate the sexes in public spaces.

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said police units were dispatched to quell the violence in Mea Shearim where about 50 men slashed tires and pelted the buses with stones.

Obama the president later condemned that reasoning with an executive order “ensuring lawful interrogations,” Savage added, although next month’s meeting may change that.

BEX ALERT – ISIL makes online threat against US Rep. Michele Bachmann

US Republican Congresswoman Michele Bachmann is getting a security detail after the ISIL terrorist group reportedly threatened her.

Law enforcement officials familiar with the situation said police have given Bachmann her own security detail following an online threat against her, POLITICO reported on Monday.

Security by the US Capitol Police’s Dignitary Protection Division will continue until Bachmann is no longer in office, according to the report.

The Minnesota Republican will retire at the end of this Congress.

This is clearly “wag the ISIS” propaganda. Bachmann has no real power. She has been outside the war machine. She is leaving Congress.

Maybe she is angling for a job at FOX News, or at SITE Intelligence.

But ISIS gains nothing by threatening her.

Weaponized Ebola?

The US and UK helped its fascist friends in South Africa develop an ethnic-specific biowarfare program

The goal: To develop ethnic-specific bio-weapons to “limit” the black population.

According to one of the psychopaths who worked on this:

“That was great. That was the most fun I had in my life.”

“Another country that had a population problem asked us to work on this.” (I’m pretty sure that was one of South Africa’s keenest allies Israel that he’s referring to.)

From the book by bio-weapons expert Jeanne Guillemin: “The project‘s growth years were from 1982 to 1987, when it developed a range of biological agents (such as those for anthrax, cholera, and the Marburg and Ebola viruses and for botulinum toxin)…”

Evidence collected by New York-based Human Rights Watch suggests both government forces and pro-Russian separatists have used cluster munitions in eastern Ukraine.

It said it could not conclusively determine responsibility for many of the attacks but “the evidence points to Ukrainian government forces’ responsibility for several cluster munition attacks” this month on Donetsk, the rebels’ main stronghold.

“It is shocking to see a weapon that most countries have banned used so extensively in eastern Ukraine,” said Mark Hiznay, senior arms researcher at Human Rights Watch. “Ukrainian authorities should make an immediate commitment not to use cluster munitions and join the treaty to ban them.”

These Activists are Risking Their Lives and Using High-Tech to Stop Illegal Logging in the Amazon

Waking Times

Every night empty trucks disappear into the Brazilian Amazon, they return laden with timber. This timber —illegally cut —makes its way to sawmills that sell it abroad to places like the U.S., Europe, China, and Japan using fraudulent paperwork to export the ill-gotten gains as legit. These findings are the result of a daring and dangerous investigation by Greenpeace-Brazil that had activists hanging out with truckers and illegal loggers, all the while surreptitiously tagging trucks with GPS locator beacons. The high-tech equipment allowed the organization to track where the logging trucks went.

Libya: From Africa’s Richest State Under Gaddafi, to Failed State After NATO Intervention

Building new military bases means billions of dollars for America’s military elite. As Will Blum has pointed out, following the bombing of Iraq, the United States built new bases in Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Oman and Saudi Arabia.

Following the bombing of Afghanistan, the United States is now building military bases in Pakistan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan.

Following the recent bombing of Libya, the United States has built new military bases in the Seychelles, Kenya, South Sudan, Niger and Burkina Faso.

At On the Media (minute 5):

What we’re seeing is extremely critical coverage of the actions of the Israeli government, and I would argue that this [alleged media] interest in the holy land– I think that there’s a very thin line between that and development of a hostile obsession with the moral failings of Jews, which as we know is a very deep thought pattern in the west.

Mexican drug cartels are worse than ISIL. “This summer ISIL beheaded two Americans… By contrast, the cartels killed 293 Americans in Mexico from 2007 to 2010.”

The horrific rampage of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) has captured the world’s attention. ManyWestern commentators have characterized ISIL’s crimes as unique, no longer practiced anywhere else in the civilized world. They argue that the group’s barbarism is intrinsically Islamic, a product of the aggressive and archaic worldview that dominates the Muslim world. The ignorance of these claims is stunning.
While there other organized groups whose depravity and threat to the United States far surpasses that of ISIL, none have engendered the same kind of collective indignation and hysteria. This raises a question: Are Americans primarily concerned with ISIL’s atrocities or with the fact that Muslims are committing these crimes?

It wasn’t. Hackers had broken into the phone network of the company, Foreman Seeley Fountain Architecture, and routed $166,000 worth of calls from the firm to premium-rate telephone numbers in Gambia, Somalia and the Maldives. It would have taken 34 years for the firm to run up those charges legitimately, based on its typical phone bill, according to a complaint it filed with the Federal Communications Commission.

Why the FBI Director Is Wrong About Encryption

The FBI should not be in the business of trying to convince companies to offer less security to their customers. It should be doing just the opposite. But that’s what Comey is proposing—undoing a clear legal protection we fought hard for in the 1990s. The law specifically ensures that a company is not required to essentially become an agent of the FBI rather than serving your security and privacy interests. Congress rightly decided that companies (and free and open source projects and anyone else building our tools) should be allowed to provide us with the tools to lock our digital information up just as strongly as we can lock up our physical goods. That’s what Comey wants to undo.

 

 

New York Times FAIL: ‘McCain No Connections To ISIS?!?’

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post

“Conspiracy Theory!!!” cried the New York Times in its recent attempt to defend John McCain against revelations that show the Senator from Arizona providing material support to terrorism. The NY Times was called into action to “debunk” the evidence that McCain had met with terrorists, cannibals, and ISIS militants in Syria after the photographs of those meetings began circulating in the alternative media and more mainstream figures began to pick up on and run with them over the last few months…

Nearly half of cardholders likely to avoid stores hit by data breaches

As data breaches exposing consumer credit card, debit card and other personal information become more common, nearly half of cardholding shoppers say they’re reluctant this holiday season to return to stores that have been hacked, according to a new survey by CreditCards.com.

Forty-five percent of respondents with credit or debit cards said they would definitely or probably avoid one of their regular stores over the holidays if that retailer had experienced a data breach. Sixteen percent said they definitely would not return to a retailer if the store had been hacked and 29 percent said they probably would not shop at such stores. Just one in eight said they are more likely to shop with credit cards this season.

One-third of working Americans support two-thirds of the population: The hidden figures of those not in the labor force and transfer payments.

The unemployment rate dropping dramatically has largely been driven by this category expanding and labor force participation is at generational lows. You also have spending growing in the form of military, Medicare, and Social Security that are now eating up a larger portion of the budget. Deficit spending continues to occur in the face of a booming economy. Why? The math shows that one-third of private sector workers are supporting two-thirds of the population.

Gaza and the Bipartisan War on Human Rights

Israel’s seven weeks of attacks this summer on heavily populated civilian neighborhoods in Gaza has led to unprecedented concern among Americans who, while still broadly supportive of Israel, found the attacks to be disproportionate and unnecessary.

Close to 1,500 Palestinian civilians in Gaza were killed in the Israeli attacks – more of 500 of whom were children – and 18,000 homes were destroyed, leaving over 100,000 people homeless. Despite this devastating civilian toll, leading Democrats in Washington have joined Republicans in claiming that Israel’s actions were legitimate acts of self-defense against military targets, dismissing reports by reputable Israeli and international human rights groups saying otherwise.

Paul Craig Roberts: Is The US Government The Master Criminal Of Our Time?

Experts have brought to the public’s attention that ebola is a genetically modified organism developed in US biowarfare laboratories in Africa.

In the two articles below reproduced from Tom Feeley’s Information Clearing House (a good site worthy of your support), Dr. Francis Boyle of the University of Illinois and Dr. Cyril Broderick of the University of Liberia and the University of Delaware provide their fact-based assessments. Dr. Boyle drafted the Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act of 1989, the US implementing legislation for the 1972 Biological Weapons Convention.

For speaking out, both Boyle and Broderick will be viciously attacked by the US print and TV media. Remember the case of Gary Webb who exposed the CIA’s drug-running that supported the Contras in Nicaragua. The cocaine that launched the War on Drugs was brought in by the CIA.

 

 

Secret Project Created Weaponized Ebola in South Africa in the 1980s

Operating out of South Africa during the Apartheid era in the early 1980’s, Dr. Wouter Basson launched a secret bioweapons project called Project Coast.

The goal of the project was to develop biological and chemical agents that would either kill or sterilize the black population and assassinate political enemies. Among the agents developed were Marburg and Ebola viruses.

Basson is surrounded by cloak and dagger intrigue, as he told Pretoria High court in South Africa that “The local CIA agent in Pretoria threatened me with death on the sidewalk of the American Embassy in Schoeman Street.” According to a 2001 article in The New Yorker magazine, the American Embassy in Pretoria was “terribly concerned” that Basson would reveal deep connections between Project Coast and the United States.

Obviously, if one weaponizes a highly contagious illness, one must have a vaccine to protect the “good guys” and this is what appears was being developed at the Kenema lab. But many modern vaccines use attenuated of “inactive” viruses to trigger the immune response without making the patient ill. The problem is that there have been many cases where attenuated or inactive viruses have reverted to full potency once injected into the patient. That may have been what happened here as well.

 

 

US Army withheld promise from Germany that Ebola virus wouldn’t be weaponized

The United States has withheld assurances from Germany that the Ebola virus – among other related diseases – would not be weaponized in the event of Germany exporting it to the US Army Medical Research Institute for Infectious Diseases.

German MFA Deputy Head of Division for Export Control Markus Klinger provided a paper to the US consulate’s Economics Office (Econoff), “seeking additional assurances related to a proposed export of extremely dangerous pathogens.”

Germany subsequently made two follow-up requests and clarifications to the Army, according to the unclassified Wikileaks cable.

“This matter concerns the complete genome of viruses such as the Zaire Ebola virus, the Lake Victoria Marburg virus, the Machupo virus and the Lassa virus, which are absolutely among the most dangerous pathogens in the world,” the request notes.

The Zaire Ebola virus was the same strain of Ebola virus which has been rampaging through West Africa in recent months.

Too late! The US created a weaponized Ebola back in the 1980s. The vaccines being tested at Kenema were to protect the “good” people from infection using an attenuated virus but may have reverted back to full potency in vitro, as has happened with other attenuated virus vaccines.

Ebola staging: experts attacked the diagnostic tests

Jon Rappoport
Activist Post

The experts were expressing grave doubts all the way back in 1977. Right at the beginning.

They were questioning the validity of standard tests used to diagnose Ebola—tests being the only way to say the virus is present in humans.

Of course, if the tests are unreliable, the whole premise of an epidemic caused by a single virus has no value. It’s an unwarranted assumption…

Guess Who’s Profiting From the Destruction of Gaza

Just when you think you’ve heard it all about Israel’s murderous bombardment of Gaza, you discover there is much more to the tragedy. Yes, there was a massive loss of innocent life and the utter destruction of tens of thousands of homes, schools and public buildings, but it now transpires Israel will profit handsomely from the $7 billion or more it will take to rebuild Gaza over the next 20 years. The scandalous fact is Israel will continue to control the flow of all building materials into Gaza and will insist they must be bought from Israeli companies.

UK convicts man over manga sex images of children

A 39-year-old UK man has been convicted of possessing illegal cartoon drawings of young girls exposing themselves in school uniforms and engaging in sex acts. The case is believed to be the UK’s first prosecution of illegal manga and anime images.

Local media said that Robul Hoque was sentenced last week to nine months’ imprisonment, though the sentence is suspended so long as the defendant does not break the law again.

Police seized Hoque’s computer in 2012 and said they found nearly 400 such images on it, none of which depicted real people but were illegal nonetheless because of their similarity to child pornography. Hoque was initially charged with 20 counts of illegal possession but eventually pled guilty to just 10 counts.

Freud referred to it as “knowing with not knowing” and when it comes to most of Canada’s military adventures, it is epidemic.

Son of Nigeria doctor who spotted Ebola patient speaks of pride

There were fears that Ebola would take hold when a Liberian-American arrived with the disease in July.

However, partly due to the diligence of Dr Ameyo Stella Adadevoh, who identified Patrick Sawyer as having the virus and stopped him from spreading it, Ebola has been officially defeated.

 

 

Obama Sees an Iran Deal That Could Avoid Congress

No one knows if the Obama administration will manage in the next five weeks to strike what many in the White House consider the most important foreign policy deal of his presidency: an accord with Iran that would forestall its ability to make a nuclear weapon. But the White House has made one significant decision: If agreement is reached, President Obama will do everything in his power to avoid letting Congress vote on it.

The contempt which Obama shows for the legislative process, is staggeringly overwhelming here.

But unfortunately, AIPAC and Israel will do everything in their considerable power to prevent such a deal from moving forward, even to the point of creating a false flag to be blamed on Iran.

The drop-dead date by which these talks are supposed to reach an accord is November 24th, right before Americans celebrate Thanksgiving. Lady Ashton, of the EU, will be staying for the full duration of these talks, and has indicated in various interviews, that there will be “no extension”. That means that there will be precisely 35 days to wind this up.

In geopolitics, 35 days is a very, very long time.

BEX ALERT – ISIS returns to its roots with suicide bombing of Baghdad mosque

Arguably the world’s most terrifying Islamic terrorist organization appears to be returning to its roots with its latest suicide operation. At least 22 Iraqis were killed and another 25 were wounded in a suicide bombing that targeted a Shiite mosque in Iraq’s heavily protected capital city of Baghdad on Sunday evening, according to a police source. The attack is believed to have been the handiwork of the Islamic State, which originally was known as al-Qaida in Irag (AQII).

This feels like a false-flag operation to me to promote the “sectarian violence” story to obscure the fact that the people of Iraq are uniting to kick out their US puppet regime.

Is the oil crash a secret US war on Russia?

Lower oil prices, reflected in falling petrol prices at the pump, have been a boon for Western consumers. Are they also a potent US weapon against Russia and Iran?

That’s the conclusion drawn by New York Times columnist Thomas L Friedman, who says the US and Saudi Arabia, whether by accident or design, could be pumping Russia and Iran to brink of economic collapse.

Despite turmoil in many of the world’s oil-producing countries – Libya, Iraq, Nigeria and Syria – prices are hitting lows not seen in years, Friedman writes.

Analysts identify a number of possible reasons for the steep drop – increased US production, slowing economies in Europe and China and steady production from the Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries (Opec).

Rather than look at the causes, however, Friedman says to look at the result – budget shortfalls in Russia and Iran – and what it means.

As reported on 11 October, 2014 at zerohedge.net:

What was not clear is what was the other part: what did the Saudis bring to the table, or said otherwise, how exactly it was that Saudi Arabia would compensate the US for bombing the Assad infrastructure until the hated Syrian leader was toppled, creating a power vacuum in his wake that would allow Syria, Qatar, Jordan and/or Turkey to divide the spoils of war as they saw fit. A glimpse of the answer was provided earlier in the article “The Oil Weapon: A New Way To Wage War”, because at the end of the day it is always about oil, and leverage. The full answer comes courtesy of Anadolu Agency, which explains not only the big picture involving Saudi Arabia and its biggest asset, oil, but also the latest fracturing of OPEC at the behest of Saudi Arabia… Saudi Arabia to pressure Russia, Iran with price of oil Saudi Arabia will force the price of oil down, in an effort to put political pressure on Iran and Russia, according to the President of Saudi Arabia Oil Policies and Strategic Expectations Center. Saudi Arabia plans to sell oil cheap for political reasons, one analyst says. To pressure Iran to limit its nuclear program, and to change Russia’s position on Syria, Riyadh will sell oil below the average spot price at $50 to $60 per barrel in the Asian markets and North America, says Rashid Abanmy, President of the Riyadh-based Saudi Arabia Oil Policies and Strategic Expectations Center. The marked decrease in the price of oil in the last three months, to $92 from $115 per barrel, was caused by Saudi Arabia, according to Abanmy. With oil demand declining, the ostensible reason for the price drop is to attract new clients, Abanmy said, but the real reason is political. Saudi Arabia wants to get Iran to limit its nuclear energy expansion, and to make Russia change its position of support for the Assad Regime in Syria. Both countries depend heavily on petroleum exports for revenue, and a lower oil price means less money coming in, Abanmy pointed out. The Gulf states will be less affected by the price drop, he added.

 

 

Turkey and China to mediate between Afghanistan and Pakistan

Chinese Ambassador to Pakistan Sun Weidong said on Sunday the cooperation among China, Afghanistan and Pakistan would benefit the region and emphasized that building mutual trust and friendly consultations between these countries should be encouraged to promote cooperation.

He made these remarks in his keynote address on the opening day of China-Afghanistan-Pakistan trilateral dialogue here.

A collective regional approach toward countering issues and meeting challenges was emphasized by diplomats, scholars and researchers at the dialogue.

Thanking Pakistan-China Institute Chairman Senator Mushahid Hussain Sayed and German political foundation, Konrad Adenauer Stiftung (KAS), Pakistan, Resident Representative Ronny Heine for jointly organizing the two-day international conference, Ambassador Weidong said both Afghanistan and Pakistan were close neighbouring countries and were good neighbours to China.

Regional dialogue here, to heal some of the wounds, and ratchet down the tensions, is far preferable to the kind of outside intervention (including extrajudicial assassinations) the US military has been providing here, and may form the basis of real cooperation between Afghanistan and Pakistan.

I wish this process luck.

 

 

Mystery of American journalist killed in car crash in Turkey… just days after she claimed intelligence services had threatened her over her coverage of siege of Kobane

An American journalist has been killed in a car crash in Turkey just days after claiming she claimed the Turkish intelligence services had threatened her over her reporting of the siege of Kobane.

Serena Shim, who worked for Iran’s state-owned Press TV as Turkey correspondent, died in the city of Suruc after the car in which she was travelling reportedly collided with a ‘heavy vehicle’.

Shim’s death came just days after she spoke on camera of her fears of being arrested, claiming Turkish intelligence agents had accused her of spying after one of her reports suggested ISIS militants were being smuggled back and forth over the Syrian border in the back of aid vehicles.

Lavrov: Russia supplying weapons to Iraq, Syria

Russia is supporting the governments of Iraq and Syria with massive supplies of weaponry and military equipment in order to help them fight against extremist groups, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Monday.

Lavrov, speaking at a panel discussion focusing on Russia’s foreign policy, said that with the Russian aid, the Iraqi and Syrian governments’ combat capacity has been greatly enhanced.

The Russian minister continued by saying that only the United Nations Security Council has the right to form a coalition against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or ISIL.

Lavrov said that any plans made outside the Security Council are worrying because “these attempts result in an accumulation of chaos.”

He added that the aim of fighting against terror is adversely affected by linking it to geopolitical decisions to punish certain regimes, and thus forcing such a connection is morally indefensible.

Vote All You Want—The Secret Government Won’t Change

The voters who put Barack Obama in office expected some big changes. From the NSA’s warrantless wiretapping to Guantanamo Bay to the Patriot Act, candidate Obama was a defender of civil liberties and privacy, promising a dramatically different approach from his predecessor.

But six years into his administration, the Obama version of national security looks almost indistinguishable from the one he inherited. Guantanamo Bay remains open. The NSA has, if anything, become more aggressive in monitoring Americans. Drone strikes have escalated. Most recently it was reported that the same president who won a Nobel Prize in part for promoting nuclear disarmament is spending up to $1 trillion modernizing and revitalizing America’s nuclear weapons.

Very depressing to understand, but this is the reality of government in the United States these days.

Virginia Police Have Been Secretively Stockpiling Private Phone Records

While revelations from Edward Snowden about the National Security Agency’s massive database of phone records have sparked a national debate about its constitutionality, another secretive database has gone largely unnoticed and without scrutiny.

The database, which affects unknown numbers of people, contains phone records that at least five police agencies in southeast Virginia have been collecting since 2012 and sharing with one another with little oversight. Some of the data appears to have been obtained by police from telecoms using only a subpoena, rather than a court order or probable-cause warrant. Other information in the database comes from mobile phones seized from suspects during an arrest.

 

 

The Fix Is In: Fed Stops Stock Slide with Talk of QE Extension

Unbelievable.

On Wednesday, stocks were hammered after economic data showed that the US and global economies were headed for a major slowdown. By mid-day, the Dow was down 460 points before clawing its way back to minus 173 points. It looked like the market was set for another triple-digit flogging on Thursday when the Fed stepped in and started talking-up an extension to QE3. That’s all it took to ease investors jitters, stop the meltdown and send equities rocketing back into space. By the end of Friday’s session, all the markets were back in the green with the Dow logging an impressive 263 points on the day.

Microsoft pulls faulty Windows Patch Tuesday fix

Microsoft has pulled a fix for a flaw affecting Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008, following the discovery of “unexpected behaviour” associated with it.

Microsoft announced the move in a revision on its threat advisory, just days after releasing the fix. The “behaviour” associated with the fix remains unknown, although Microsoft recommends uninstalling it as soon as possible.

“Microsoft recommends that customers experiencing issues uninstall this update. Microsoft is investigating behaviour associated with this update, and will update the advisory when more information becomes available,” read the advisory.

IN ISRAEL, THE THEME IS ‘ACCEPTANCE OF THE OTHER’ … UNLESS THEY ARE SEPHARDIC JEWS

But lo and behold, the most prestigious academic body in Israel, the Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities, organizes a conference about the other which is characterized mainly by an exclusion of the other.

It’s not just about the ethnic origin issue. It’s possible that a very small minority of the participants are of Sephardic decent. The problem is also about opinion and outlook and a school of thought.

The hostility of the Ashkanzi to the Sephardic may lie partly in the fact that the Sephardic are actually descended from the Biblical Hewbrews, whereas the Ashkanzi are the descendants of coverted central Asian Khazars.

 

 

Price comparison sites accused of hiding best energy deals from customers

Comparison sites have been accused of misleading consumers by not showing them the best deals.

The warning comes from a collective bargaining website, which claims the big five switching firms filter out energy tariffs that don’t pay commission.

But it echoes complaints that The Independent has received from independent energy firms which say if they don’t pay high enough commission to comparison sites, they don’t get a look in.

Exposing government wrongdoing: Official sources may be the only sources

New York Times investigative reporter James Risen is taking a stand. Despite being hounded by both the Bush and Obama administrations to reveal his sources, he has vowed to go to jail rather than abandon his pledge of confidentiality.

As fellow journalists and journalism advocacy groups rush to his side, many fear that the US Department of Justice within the self-proclaimed “most transparent administration in history” is preparing to deliver a body blow to the First Amendment’s promise of press freedom.

 

 

America Can Nearly Quadruple Its Renewable Electricity By 2030- would cost the average household only about 18 cents per month

A recent Union of Concerned Scientists (USC) study found that America can nearly quadruple its renewable electricity in the next 15 years, reaching 23% by 2030. This comes in response to the Environmental Protection Agency’s proposal that America set a modest goal of 12% renewable energy by 2030. Rachel Cleetus, Senior Climate Economist of UCS, referred to the EPA’s goal as just a fraction above “business as usual.” The UCS found raising this target, to +23% of the nation’s electricity from non-hydro renewable sources by 2030, would cost the average household only about 18 cents per month. Cleetus described this as a realistic and affordable goal: “Looking at the way renewable energy is ramping up and costs are falling dramatically, there is a real opportunity to go farther.”

 

 

Nobody Wants To Host The 2022 Olympics.

The bidding process for the 2022 Olympics was a disaster for the International Olympic Committee.
Democratic nations are no longer buying the argument that hosting the games is a wise investment. Every potential 2022 host city with a democratic government eventually pulled out of the bidding, many over economic concerns, leaving Beijing and Almaty, Kazakhstan, as the IOC’s only two options.

 

 

Ebola research: Fever not a surefire sign of infection

For public health workers screening more than 1,000 air travelers who arrive each week in the United States from Ebola-stricken West Africa, one symptom above all others is supposed to signal danger: fever.

So long as an individual’s temperature does not exceed 101.5 degrees and there are no visible symptoms of Ebola, health authorities say it should be assumed the person is not infectious.

Yet the largest study of the current outbreak found that in nearly 13% of “confirmed and probable” cases in Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea and elsewhere, those infected did not have fevers.

Israeli society sick with violence – country’s president

Israel is suffering from an epidemic of violence that must be treated, the country’s President Reuven Rivlin said. After the latest bloody conflict in Gaza, Jews and Arabs seem to have lost the capacity for dialogue, as relations have reached a new low.

“It is time to honestly admit that Israeli society is sick – and it is our duty to treat this disease,” Rivlin told the Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities at a xenophobia conference on Sunday in Jerusalem.

“The tension between Jews and Arabs within the State of Israel has risen to record heights, and the relationship between all parties has reached a new low,” he said, as cited by the Jewish Telegraphic Agency.

UNCANNY PARALLELS IN CHARACTER

I don’t know whether anyone else has noticed the fact that Benjamin Netanyahu and Adolph Hitler share uncomfortably similar personality and character traits. Certainly there are, and have been, other politicians who also share the same traits, but it is of particular concern today that a man of this nature dominates events in the Middle East. In the case of Hitler we can read about his personality and character in any of a number of scholarly biographies and histories of World War II. In the case of Netanyahu, we can see them displayed on the world stage despite an immense amount effort by public relations flaks and apologists to airbrush them. We have also, something we do not always have for contemporaries, the first-hand testimony of several world figures about key aspects of his behavior to which we wouldn’t otherwise be exposed.

Certainly Netanyahu’s “Fist of iron” comment regarding opposition to building Jewish settlements on Palestinian land reveals his true nature.

The president made a desperate appeal for help from every nation with the capacity to do so, describing the initial reaction as ‘inconsistent and lacking in clear direction or urgency’.

She said the international community had woken up to the global health risk posed by the epidemic but said her country had been brought to ‘a standstill’ and was desperate for funding and medical supplies.

 

 

Edward Snowden and the Golden Age of Spying

Here’s a Ripley’s Believe It or Not! stat from our new age of national security. How many Americans have security clearances? The answer: 5.1 million, a figure that reflects the explosive growth of the national security state in the post-9/11 era. Imagine the kind of system needed just to vet that many people for access to our secret world (to the tune of billions of dollars).

We’re talking here about the total population of Norway and significantly more people than you can find in Costa Rica, Ireland, or New Zealand. And yet it’s only about 1.6% of the American population, while on ever more matters, the unvetted 98.4% of us are meant to be left in the dark.

It is expected to put further pressure on the UK’s squeezed electricity network and could result in supply failing to keep up with demand.

These Countries Do the Exact Opposite of What America Does When It Comes to Higher Education

Germany made international news last week when they decided to eliminate college tuition entirely (before this, it was less than €1,000– the equivalent to $1,300– per year). Meanwhile in the United States, the average per-year tuition cost was $8,655 for an in-state 4-year public college, $21,706 for an out-of-state 4 year public college, and $29,056 for a private 4-year college. The average American college student will graduate with more than $27,000 in debt, and college costs in the U.S. have gone up more than 1100% since 1978 with little sign of leveling off.

In light of Germany’s actions, we decided to highlight 5 countries whose approaches towards financing higher education put ours to shame.

In those other countries, education is just that, education. In the US, education has become just another scam to ensnare the people into banker debt.

No entry! The ‘haves’ of a wealthy Michigan suburb who built FENCES across the streets to keep out Detroit ‘have-nots’

On one side, there are dilapidated houses, gardens overflowing with weeds and a high crime rate.

On the other, there are streets filled with spacious homes, well-manicured lawns and yoga studios.

This is one of numerous fences that have been erected by the wealthy ‘haves’ of the Michigan suburb of Grosse Pointe Park to ‘prevent ‘have-nots’ from Detroit from driving into the city.

The brick barrier, reading ‘Road Ends’, represents a significant divide between the two cities, which despite their proximity, differ greatly in terms of average salary, crime rates and general desirability.

Pro-Russian rebels using seized Ukrainian missile downed MH17 passenger plane, says Germany

Germany’s intelligence service believes Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 was shot down by pro-Russian rebels using a missile taken from a Ukraine military base, a German newspaper has reported.

The finding contradicts previous claims – including by Prime Minister Tony Abbott and US Secretary of State John Kerry – that the missile was supplied by Russia.

The part that should be there and isn’t is WHY the Eastern Ukrainians would kill a passenger jet knowing it would turn world opinion against them, and how the eastern Ukrainians could have arranged for the flight to be diverted north from its normal path to bring it in range. Needless to say the original article does not allow comments, nor has Germany claimed to actually have any proof of their assertion.

Military orders civilians to keep their distance

The hunt for foreign underwater activity near Stockholm entered its fourth day on Monday as Sweden’s armed forces vowed to keep searching “day and night” for what media reports suggest may be a damaged Russian vessel.

“The operation is continuing day and night with undiminished resource,” said military spokesman Dag Enander.

In the morning, the armed forces deployed military vessels and land troops in the Stockholm archipelago, from Möja in the north to Ornö in the south.

By midday, the HMS Stockholm corvette had made its way further south to Nåttarö. The military ordered civilian boats to stay at least ten kilometres away from the warship. It did not give a reason.

One good reason might be if this is a repeat of the Kursk incident where the Russian submarine was accidentally rammed and sunk by a US sub.

 

 

ISIS: A Monster Created by the West

It is a laughable routine of the mass media to demonize all of the leaders of U.S. enemies as latter-day Hitlers. Saddam Hussein was a Hitler. Hugo Chavez in Venezuela was a Hitler. Gaddafi in Libya. Assad in Syria. Hillary Clinton recently equated Putin in Russia with Hitler.

Finally, however, we may have an actual instance where a U.S. adversary actually is a bonafide Hitler. But it’s not in the way we may think. The adversary is ISIS in Syraq and its equation with Hitler is not because it is committing genocide. Rather, it is for the way ISIS came to power—with U.S. nurturing—and then turned on its master.

Paul Craig Roberts – Fed Afraid Rising Gold will Sink Dollar

Economist Dr. Paul Craig Roberts says, “The reason they want to hold the gold price down is they are afraid of its impact on the dollar. The reason why they had to suppress the gold price is they had to protect the dollar from quantitative easing (QE) because they were printing trillions and trillions of new dollars.” Roberts, who was an Assistant Treasury Secretary and the so-called Father of Reaganomics, goes on to say, “This was worrying people around the world who hold dollars because the dollar was increasing, but not the goods and services in the American economy. So, when the gold price took off, the Fed said this endangers QE because if the dollar is declining in value relative to gold, it must also be declining in value relative to other currencies. Once the exchange rate starts collapsing, we lose control. So, we got to suppress gold. I don’t know which side of the equation will play out first.

Mad Scientists at Kenema Unleash Ebola Epidemic

I presented the case for the Kemena bio-lab as the source of spreading the Ebola outbreak in Saturday’s post, and I had to circle back and debunk the debunkers. It states on the hospital consortium’s own website that it is involved in research on lethal diseases at Kenema. The trump card, or the rest of the story, is in this post.

Indeed, starting in January, the consortium running the Kenema lab inked a $140 million deal with Department of Defense and a pharma company called Tekmira to conduct Phase I Ebola vaccine trails at Kenema on humans [see "Tekmira Doses First Subject in Human Clinical Trial of TKM-Ebola" press release].

Turkey made no concession to allow reinforcement of Syrian Kurdish rebels battling IS forces in Kobani.

Libya: From Africa’s Richest State Under Gaddafi, to Failed State After NATO Intervention

This week marks the three-year anniversary of the Western-backed assassination of Libya’s former president, Muammar Gaddafi, and the fall of one of Africa’s greatest nations.

In 1967 Colonel Gaddafi inherited one of the poorest nations in Africa; however, by the time he was assassinated, Gaddafi had turned Libya into Africa’s wealthiest nation. Libya had the highest GDP per capita and life expectancy on the continent. Less people lived below the poverty line than in the Netherlands.

After NATO’s intervention in 2011, Libya is now a failed state and its economy is in shambles. As the government’s control slips through their fingers and into to the militia fighters’ hands, oil production has all but stopped.

When I was 16, my parents bought me a nice bicycle with which to ride to school. Brand new, shiny, lots of chrome, and all the gadgets. Without intending to I had what was clearly the nicest bike in the neighborhood. So, some other kids grabbed the bike one day and smashed it up, and while I was able to repair it, the remaining dents and scratches made it appear inferior to the bikes ridden by those other boys. Now, you expect that sort of behavior from 16 year old boys, but it appears the governments of the US and EU, unable to actually make their nations great while in slavery to the private central banks, have hit on the idea of stealing other peoples’ nations and smashing them up, in order to go on claiming that they, the US and EU, are the greatest nations remaining on Earth. That does not say very much about the governments we allow to rule us.

As an intelligence operation, it must have seemed like pure genius: Recruit a Pakistani doctor to collect blood samples that could identify Osama bin Laden’s family, under cover of an ongoing vaccination program. But as an ethical matter, it was something else.

The CIA’s vaccination gambit put at risk something very precious — the integrity of public health programs in Pakistan and around the globe. It also added to the dangers facing nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) in a world that’s increasingly hostile to U.S. aid organizations.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said the original Centers for Disease Control and Prevention instructions for dealing with the virus were taken from the World Health Organization’s protocol for Africa, where conditions are much different from those in U.S. hospitals.

 

 

Perry’s Priorities: Photo-Op at Auschwitz More Important Than Combating Ebola Outbreak in Texas

Whereas a visit to Jerusalem’s Wailing Wall may evoke some religious sympathies, a visit to the infamous Auschwitz I camp, with the often depicted words “ARBEIT MACHT FREI” at the gate, will likely trigger more powerful emotions. So that was the plan. The photos of Perry posing before the gate would be available to be released at the most opportune time during campaign season. However, at least one image did leak out into the public domain prematurely. (Note that the proper way to visit the Auschwitz I camp, which the holocaust industry propagandists have declared a “holy” site, appears to entail keeping both hands in your pockets, unless you have to hold an umbrella with the other one.)

On October 11, the United States carried out its 400th drone strike in the tribal areas of Pakistan since the controversial campaign began a decade ago. Since 2004 thousands of people mostly civilians have been killed in such attacks. The US claims that its drone campaign is only against al-Qaeda and other militants. But a new study challenged America’s claims. In its latest study, the Bureau of Investigative Journalism says only 12 percent of drone victims in Pakistan could be identified as militants. The London based organization also says that out of the 12%, only 4 percent have been identified as members of al-Qaeda. Pakistan has repeatedly condemned the U-S drone program as violation of its territorial integrity and sovereignty.

If Republicans Win Control of the Senate in November, Nuclear War with Russia Will Be More Likely. Here’s Why.

Senate Bill S. 2277 is sponsored by 26 Republicans and no Democrats, and it would give President Obama the virtually unlimited authority to take U.S. to war against Russia in defense of the Ukrainian Government that Obama’s February 2014 coup established in Ukraine, the government that’s controlled by a coalition of one fascist party and two nazi (or racist-fascist) parties in northwest Ukraine. (Southeast Ukraine isn’t represented in the coalition; southeast Ukraine had voted overwhelmingly — and you can see the exact percentages here — for the President that Obama’s coup toppled in February 2014.)

Voting with their feet? Crowds WALK OUT during Obama’s speech on the campaign trail in Maryland

A rare appearance on the campaign trail by President Obama on Sunday night was marred by a steady stream of crowd members leaving early and even a yelling heckler.

The president had shown up at the Democratic rally in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, near Washington, to support Lieutenant Governor Anthony Brown, who is running for governor.

With Obama’s approval levels hovering around record lows, many candidates from his party have been wary of appearing with the president during their election races because of his sagging popularity.

Florida court: Come back with a warrant to track suspects via mobile phone

In a rare decision, the Florida Supreme Court ruled last Friday that law enforcement must get a warrant in order to track a suspect’s location via his or her mobile phone.

Many legal experts applauded the decision as a step in the right direction for privacy.

“[The] opinion is a resounding defense of our right to privacy in the digital age,” Nate Freed Wessler, staff attorney with the American Civil Liberties Union, said in a statement. “Following people’s movements by secretly turning their cell phones into tracking devices can reveal extremely sensitive details of our lives, like where we go to the doctor or psychiatrist, where we spend the night, and who our friends are. Police are now on notice that they need to get a warrant from a judge before tracking cell phones, whether using information from the service provider or their own ‘stingray’ cell phone tracking equipment.”

Over 30,000 on New York mental health list show rights and real dangers ignored

Approximately 34,500 New Yorkers are “too mentally unstable to carry firearms,” Anemona Hartocollis of The New York Times reported Sunday. The report looks at figures from a database established via the “SAFE Act” by the state Division of Criminal Justice Services, obtained by The Times through a Freedom of Information Act request.

What the database cannot do, the report acknowledges, is determine if the names on it represent people who are truly a danger to themselves or others, highlighting the rift between gun rights defenders and supporters of stricter controls. Those arguing on the side of rights point out the unfairness of preemptively denying them without adjudication to those who have not been proven a danger, while those with an agenda for wider citizen disarmament advocate “Even if just one dangerous person had a gun taken away, ‘that’s a good thing.’

Sweden hunts damaged Russian sub

Swedish signals intelligence officials first heard an emergency call on Thursday evening, the newspaper said. Fourteen hours later, at around midday on Friday, a foreign vessel was spotted in the Stockholm archipelago.

Sweden intercepted further communications after it began its military operation in the waters off Stockholm, as encrypted messages were relayed between transmitters in the Stockholm archipelago and the Russian enclave Kaliningrad, SvD said.

The Swedish military said it could neither confirm nor deny the report.

An underwater craft in distress can be difficult to manoeuvre, which might explain why it was spotted above the waterline, the newspaper said.

Sweden on alert, deploys troops in alleged underwater threat

Sweden intensified its search for a suspected submarine in the waters east of Stockholm Sunday, after an operation was launched due to a report of ‘foreign underwater activity.’ The search was initiated following a tip-off from what Swedish authorities have called a “credible source.”

In other words, this is the staged provocation to really kick off a new European war.

No Justice, No Peace: Darren Wilson Likely To Avoid Civil Rights Charges In Shooting

In an eye-opening piece run by the New York Times late Friday evening, federal government officials close to the Justice Department’s investigation of Michael Brown’s death state that the evidence they’ve seen so far does not support a civil rights charge against Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson. An unarmed Brown was shot to death by Wilson on August 9th. The officials who spoke with the Times say that Wilson testified that Brown scuffled with him in his vehicle and caused him to fear for his life, leading to the fatal shooting.

ACADEMIC FREEDOM Vs FREEDOM

I am going to use this space once again to talk about the despicable un-hiring of Steven Salaita at the University of Illinois (I wrote about the Salaita case and what I called The Incivility of Palestinians, last month as well).

I am going to do this because, despite the fact that the academic boycott of the University of Illinois continues apace (there is even, it seems, the rise of a progressive Jewish-identified contingentchampioning Salaita), facile comparisons of Salaita’s case and circumstances with those of various unsavory others are also proliferating.

These comparisons are so thick-headed, so tin-eared, so ham-fisted, that they nearly defy imagination.

Gitmo force-feeding manual reveals gruesome practices

Last week the U.S. government submitted to the District Court in Washington, D.C., the most recent standard operating procedures (SOPs) for force-feeding in the Guantánamo Bay detention facility. What remains of the documents, after redactions, is a shameful exercise in doublespeak that attempts to disguise what is really happening in the prison.

The SOPs were submitted in a case brought by Abu Wa’el Dhiab, an inmate represented by Reprieve, the international human rights organization that I head. Dhiab is a 43-year-old Syrian and father of four who has been held without trial or charge in Guantánamo for 12 years. The U.S. government told Dhiab four years ago that he was cleared for release, and yet to this day he remains behind bars. In a last resort to get back to his wife and children, he, along with many others, embarked on a hunger strike. His case concerns the manner in which that entirely legitimate hunger strike has been brutally opposed by the prison authorities.

That this is being done to prisoners of war cleared for release, but have not been released, as they are protesting their status through hunger strikes, is horrifically inhumane.

I will tell you the reason many of these men, cleared for release, have not been released, and will not be released: there have been far worse things done to them than waterboarding. As reported at thinkprogress.org, on 9 February, 2009:

Last week, two British High Court judges ruled against releasing documents describing the treatment of Binyam Mohamed, a British resident who is currently being held at Guantanamo Bay. The judges said the Bush administration “had threatened to withhold intelligence cooperation with Britain if the information were made public.” But The Daily Telegraph reported over the weekend that the documents actually “contained details of how British intelligence officers supplied information to [Mohamed's] captors and contributed questions while he was brutally tortured.” In fact, it was British officials, not the Americans, who pressured Foreign Secretary David Miliband “to do nothing that would leave serving MI6 officers open to prosecution.” According to the Telegraph’s sources, the documents describe particularly gruesome interrogation tactics: The 25 lines edited out of the court papers contained details of how Mr Mohamed’s genitals were sliced with a scalpel and other torture methods so extreme that waterboarding, the controversial technique of simulated drowning, “is very far down the list of things they did,” the official said. Another source familiar with the case said: “British intelligence officers knew about the torture and didn’t do anything about it.”

US War on Iran Takes Bizarre Turn

It is not Western policy that indirectly spurs the creation and perpetuation of terrorist organizations, but in fact, direct, intentional, unmistakable support.

This support would manifest itself in perhaps the most overt and bizarre declaration of allegiance to terrorism to date, US Army General Hugh Shelton on stage before terrorists of the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq (MEK) and their Wahabist counterparts fighting in Syria, hysterically pledging American material, political, and strategic backing. MEK was listed for years by the US State Department as a foreign terrorist organization, but has received funding, arms, and safe haven by the United States for almost as long.

US War on Iran Takes Bizarre Turn

It is not merely hyperbole when it is said the US created terrorist organizations like Al Qaeda or the so-called “Islamic State.” It is documented fact. The current conflict in the Middle East may appear to be a chaotic conflagration beyond the control of the United States and its many eager allies, but in reality it is the intentional, engineered creation of regional fronts in a war against Iran and its powerful arc of influence.

It is not Western policy that indirectly spurs the creation and perpetuation of terrorist organizations, but in fact, direct, intentional, unmistakable support…

“They will no longer need to stay home starting Monday,” the statement said. “Someone will formally bring the release to them on Monday.”

Instead of Appointing a Medical Expert, Obama Appoints a LOBBYIST as Ebola Czar

What’s He Going To Do … Lobby To Convince Congress That Ebola Is Not That Big A Risk?

Obama has appointed Ron Klain as the Ebola Czar.

Klain has no medical or healthcare background whatsoever.

Instead, he’s a high-powered lobbyist. He helped the corrupt Fannie Mae to overcome “regulatory issues” in 2004. Wikipedia notes:

Klain [helped in] convincing Congress and Fannie Mae’s regulators that Fannie Mae wasn’t doing anything dangerous, and wasn’t exposing taxpayers to risk. In other words, Ron Klain got paid to help fuel the housing bubble up until a couple of years before it popped.

Klain also:

Represented a company facing asbestos-exposure lawsuits, the embattled drugmaker ImClone and two companies trying to win support for large mergers.

Atheist Jailed 100 Days for Refusing Religious Drug Rehab Wins $2 Million Settlement

Public Health Expert Explains How to Prevent a Panic About Ebola: Tell the Truth!

I categorically reject the idea that you can’t tell people you “don’t know” … because you’re afraid you’ll scare them.

There is a complete [scientific] literature on risk communications that says people are never frightened if you tell them you don’t know, but “this is what I’m doing to learn”. Or [if you tell them] “this is something, and it might be very scary.”

The literature shows – over and over again – there are 2 things that will turn them to be very concerned … if not scared.

One is if you tell them with certainty “A”, and then you tell them with certainty “B”, and then A and B don’t happen … or they happen in a way you didn’t tell them. Then they wonder about your credibility.

Which is exactly what is happening now. It is not the Ebola that has people scared but the obvious mismanagement by the government!

 

 

Police Raid on Okra Plants? 10 Totally Pointless SWAT Raid Nightmares

On October 6, a grand jury in Habersham County, Georgia decided that members of a SWAT team who maimed and disfigured a 19-month-old toddler during a botched no-knock drug raid should not face any criminal charges. It was yet another example of militarized, trigger-happy narcotics officers endangering the public with impunity, which has been the norm in the War on Drugs. SWAT teams, when used appropriately, can save lives: for example, an effective, well-trained SWAT team can actually reduce the number of injuries and fatalities in certain hostage situations. But with American police having become overly militarized in recent years, the use of SWAT teams in non-extreme circumstances has become much too common.

Propaganda 101 – How The Pentagon Is Trying To Rewrite Vietnam War History

In case you weren’t aware, the Pentagon is set to roll out a 50th anniversary commemoration of the Vietnam War. Personally, it’s hard to get excited about commemorating an event that led to the death of over 58,000 American soldiers and more than a million Vietnamese, particularly since much of it was the direct result of well documented lies and deception, such as the Gulf of Tonkin incident.

What’s worse, the Pentagon intends to rewrite history by whitewashing this period of civil unrest and government shame from American history. The propaganda is so blatant that it has resulted in many of the era’s most well known protestors and activists to come together in order to stop it.

History of Key Document in IAEA Probe Suggests Israeli Forgery

Western diplomats have reportedly faulted Iran in recent weeks for failing to provide the International Atomic Energy Agency with information on experiments on high explosives intended to produce a nuclear weapon, according to an intelligence document the IAEA is investigating.

But the document not only remains unverified but can only be linked to Iran by a far-fetched official account marked by a series of coincidences related to a foreign scientist that that are highly suspicious.

Under-30s being priced out of the UK, says social mobility tsar

Britain is on the verge of becoming permanently divided between tribes of haves and have-nots as the young increasingly miss out on the opportunities enjoyed by their parents’ generation, the government’s social mobility tsar claim.

The under-30s in particular are being priced out of owning their own homes, paid lower wages and left with diminishing job prospects, despite a strong economic recovery being enjoyed by some.

Those without the benefits of wealthy parents are condemned to languish on “the wrong side of the divide that is opening up in British society”, according to Alan Milburn, the former Labour cabinet minister who chairs the government’s Commission on Social Mobility.

What Happens When You Talk With Americans About Drone Murders

I want to relate a story about one man I talked to. As I handed him a leaflet, he said he was supportive of what we are doing. But, he said, his grandson was in the military and operated a camera for the drones and he didn’t kill children. (One of our signs said “Drones Kill Children”.) I replied that there are many innocent people, including many children, who are being killed by drone attacks in countries overseas. He said again that his grandson didn’t kill children. I told him that we had a list of names of many of the children who have been killed. He said again that his grandson was a family man with four children and he wouldn’t kill children. He added that he had been a nurse assisting in surgery with children for many years and he knew what it was like for traumatized children and his grandson would not kill children.

Mutant Ebola warning: Leading U.S. scientist warns deadly virus is already changing to become more contagious

Now U.S. scientist Peter Jahrling of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease believes the current Ebola outbreak may be caused by an infection that spreads more easily than it did before.

Dr Jahrling explained that his team, who are working in the epicentre of the crisis in the Liberian capital of Monrovia, are seeing that the viral loads in Ebola patients are much higher than they are used to seeing.

He told Vox.com: ‘We are using tests now that weren’t using in the past, but there seems to be a belief that the virus load is higher in these patients [today] than what we have seen before. If true, that’s a very different bug.

‘I have a field team in Monrovia. They are running [tests]. They are telling me that viral loads are coming up very quickly and really high, higher than they are used to seeing.

‘It may be that the virus burns hotter and quicker.’

The Internationalisation of the Yuan

The issue of turning the yuan into an international currency is the subject of much controversy. Some believe that Beijing should opt for full convertibility of the yuan, turning it into a fully-fledged international currency. Others believe that the yuan is already an international currency, citing impressive figures that reflect the growing use of the Chinese currency in international trade. Still others hold the view that turning the yuan into an international currency would be of no benefit to Beijing, and the Chinese authorities are even intentionally preventing it. The complexity of the problem lies in the fact that moving the yuan towards internationalisation involves three distinct phases: turning the Chinese currency into a) a trading currency, b) an investment currency, and c) a reserve currency…

Latest News 19 October 2014

UPDATED

The facts are that in Australia today, no Defence Force member, no Veteran, no ex Service member, no War Widow and none of their kids can rely on the Department of Veterans Affairs to keep their confidential medical documents safe and secure, away from prying public eyes. This is the situation as you read this. The buck stops with DVA Minister Senator Ronaldson. This DVA Minister is so elitist, so arrogant and so irresponsible that he refuses to answer correspondence on the leaks of medical documents and refuses to plug the holes. To allow such a situation to continue while sending more young Australians off to war is political treachery and treason.

~~~~

The Australian government has plenty of money for war, but says it doesn’t have enough money for fair war Veterans pensions.

 

The official estimate of the cost of the new Iraq war to Australian taxpayers is currently $500 million a year, and this will increase as time goes by. PM Abbott is now talking about deploying Australian combat ground Troops to Iraq. This will cost much, much more. Additionally, the government can find an additional $630 mil to upgrade our security organisations at home, which have been keeping the country safe for years on the budget they have as it is without any major increase.

 

Additionally the government intends to give millionaires $50,000 to have a baby and will be spending hundreds of millions extra for the Antarctic station.

 

When it comes to balancing the budget the government is forcing the small end of town to cop the bill and is leaving the big end of town alone.

~~~~

During Question Time on Wed 1 Oct 2014 in the Australian House of LiaRepresentatives, PM Tony Abbott once again lied in response to a question about why the government plans to reduce war Veterans pensions from 2017. The government plans to change the method of indexation of war Veterans pensions from 2017 onwards which will see the dollar value and purchasing power of Veterans pensions reduce over time, yet Abbott denied this is true last Wednesday, and during his denial he once again distorted the facts and lied as he ran for cover while trying to defend this treachery. On top of this Abbott compared war Veterans pensions to the Family Tax Benefit when he said if it was good enough for the FTB to be indexed to the CPI alone, then it was good for all social security recipients. Abbott consistently likens war Veteran pensions, and the pensions of Defence Force members, war widows, ex service member and their kids to social security pensions. Veterans pensioners under Veteran Law are NOT social security recipients. Veterans are covered under special legislation which recognises their unique service to the Nation, and have been so recognised since 1916.

 

BUT, no money for fair Veterans pensions and fair wages for the Armed Forces of Australia………………KT

Washington Admits: FSA Equals Fictitious Syrian Army

US President Barack Obama hosted a top-level war council this past week in Washington with the military leaders from 21 countries in attendance – under the official remit of coordinating tactics to defeat the Islamic State extremist group in Syria and Iraq.

Hold on a minute. Congress has approved $500 million to train a new cohort of the supposedly moderate and secular Free Syrian Army; and Saudi Arabia and Turkey are providing bases for that undertaking. But at Obama’s seminal war council on «coordinating» plans there was not one representative from the much-vaunted moderate rebels who are assigned this crucial military role.

But as funders shoveled more than half a million dollars into the project, they also began to pick apart Anonabox’s claims of creating custom hardware, as well as the promised security of its software. Soon, many were calling for the project to be cancelled, and asked others to report its shortfalls to Kickstarter staff, who now say they’ll cancel all investors’ pledges.1

 

 

What ‘Democracy’ Really Means in U.S. and New York Times Jargon: Latin America Edition

It is, of course, true that democratically elected leaders are capable of authoritarian measures. It is, for instance, democratically elected U.S. leaders who imprison people without charges for years, build secret domestic spying systems, and even assert the power to assassinate their own citizens without due process. Elections are no guarantee against tyranny. There are legitimate criticisms to be made of each of these leaders with regard to domestic measures and civic freedoms, as there is for virtually every government on the planet.

This country only observes human rights, freedom, and democracy…. in the absolute, post-Orwellian opposite of what these values are supposed to mean, both at home and abroad.

It doesn’t matter, really, who gets elected to national office, because every single candidate has been co-opted by the huge financial rewards of those companies which fund election cycles.

What we have in the US right now is not a democratic republic, but horrific crony capitalism writ large, and all the attending misery it creates.

 

 

History of Key Document in IAEA Probe Suggests Israeli Forgery

Western diplomats have reportedly faulted Iran in recent weeks for failing to provide the International Atomic Energy Agency with information on experiments on high explosives intended to produce a nuclear weapon, according to an intelligence document the IAEA is investigating.

But the document not only remains unverified but can only be linked to Iran by a far-fetched official account marked by a series of coincidences related to a foreign scientist that that are highly suspicious.

The original appearance of the document in early 2008, moreover, was not only conveniently timed to support Israel’s attack on a U.S. National Intelligence Estimate on Iran in December that was damaging to Israeli interests, but was leaked to the news media with a message that coincided with the current Israeli argument.

The IAEA has long touted the document, which came from an unidentified member state, as key evidence justifying suspicion that Iran has covered up past nuclear weapons work.

Israel’s ambitions regarding Iran are to have the US attack it, and create regime change here.

But there is one slight, minor problem here (other that the moral reality that Iran has not given the US the slightest reason to attack): if the US attacks Iran, Russia may very well come to its aid militarily.

Russia and Iran are already doing joint military drills, as reported by AP:

Iran’s state television says two Russian warships have left a northern Iranian port after the two countries held a joint, three-day naval exercise in the Caspian Sea. Thursday’s report on the TV’s website quoted Iranian Adm. Afshin Rezaei Haddad, who is Iran’s navy commander in the Caspian Sea, as saying that the Russian vessels departed from the northern Iranian port of Anzali on Wednesday.

Leaders in Russian military and civilian leadership have made comments to the effect that any attack against Iran will be viewed as an attack against Russia’s national interests.

And the US military cannot possibly insure a positive outcome to a military attack against Russia because it does not have the money, troop strength, or manufacturing to guarantee such an outcome; and that is what makes the military scenario so scarily dangerous.

 

 

On 25 Jan 2006, Hamas was democratically elected to form the Palestinian government by the Palestinian people. The election was deemed fair and open by international observers. However, the USA and Israel did not agree with the way the Palestinian people voted, and subsequently removed this democratically elected Hamas government and replaced it with a Fatah party government………..KT

‘Shot in the heart’: Israeli army kills 13yo Palestinian boy

A Palestinian boy was shot in the chest point-blank and later died amid a confrontation between Israeli forces and stone-throwing youths in a village of the occupied West Bank, according to local media and medical sources.

READ MORE: UK MPs pass motion to recognize Palestine as a state

Bahaa Badr, 13, was fatally shot by the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) as the troops made their way to Beit Liqya village in the West Bank, located near the border with Israel, Reuters reported citing medical sources and local residents.

Badr was shot from a close range into the heart area and died shortly after the impact, Palestinian Ma’an news agency quoted another source as saying.

Upon entering the village, Israeli troops were met by Palestinian protesters who began throwing stones at them. It is still unclear whether the boy took part in the protest.

The extermination of Palestinian kids continues, unabated, with absolutely no checks and balances on the part of the IDF to prevent this from happening.

OF course, the IDF’s favorite targets are pregnant Palestinian women. As reported today in presstv.com:

While they enjoy slaughtering children and their mothers, Israelis take special relish in killing pregnant women. A T-shirt popular in the Israeli army shows a pregnant woman with a target on her belly. The legend reads: “One shot two kills.” Killing children is the de facto official policy of the Israeli military. In his article “Gaza Diary,” Chris Hedges wrote about watching Israeli soldiers hunt Palestinian children for sport: “Yesterday at this spot the Israelis shot eight young men, six of whom were under the age of eighteen. One was twelve. This afternoon they kill an eleven-year-old boy, Ali Murad, and seriously wound four more, three of whom are under eighteen. Children have been shot in other conflicts I have covered—death squads gunned them down in El Salvador and Guatemala, mothers with infants were lined up and massacred in Algeria, and Serb snipers put children in their sights and watched them crumple onto the pavement in Sarajevo—but I have never before watched soldiers entice children like mice into a trap and murder them for sport.” An October 2004 study by British Medical Journal confirmed that this is a common practice, and never punished: “Two thirds of the 621 children (two thirds under 15 years) killed at checkpoints, in the street, on the way to school, in their homes, died from small arms fire, directed in over half of cases to the head, neck and chest – the sniper’s wound…Clearly, soldiers are routinely authorised to shoot to kill children in situations of minimal or no threat.”

 

 

FLA: Scores Held Indefinitely; Grandma Prosecuted For Aiding Detainees

… What was and still is going in the DeSoto County Courthouse are plea deal hearings held behind closed doors inside 12th Circuit Judge James S. Parker’s chambers. The public is not allowed. The closed door hearings are being conducted through audio visual and, at times, an inmate is physically taken there to be threatened. If an inmate is offered a plea deal and does not take it then he/she remains in jail until they are offered another deal, months later. The longest time the accused have remained in the DeSoto County Jail is 3 years. My research has revealed the longest time the accused to remain in a county jail is seven years in Miami, Florida. These detainee’s cases are continued without their knowledge or permission and they remain in jail, “incognito” until they are called for the next plea deal hearing. No defenses are being built in 100% of the cases, if you are arrested you are guilty. This system encompasses the entire United States. Because my story has gone out over the internet I now receive letters from all over the country from inmates…that I am not allowed to answer….

Here’s some of the text of the solicitation, entitled “EMERGENCY DISASTER EVENT PREPARATION FOR PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE)”. Some portions are bold for emphasis.

 

 

Who Lost Yemen?

The Huthi’s stunning rise to power is mainly the result of four factors: the incompetence of the interim government installed in 2011, former president Ali Abdullah Saleh’s desire for revenge against those who ousted him in 2011, Saudi Arabia and the UAE’s sharp turn against the Muslim Brotherhood and the astute political leadership of the Huthi movement itself.

The Huthi movement began in the 1990s as civil rights movement for Yemen’s Zaydis. Zaydism is a form of Shiism adhered to by Yemen’s rulers for 1,000 years until 1962, when Yemen became a Republic. The Zaydis believed that the descendants of the Prophet Mohamed’s family through Fatima, one of his daughters, and Ali, her husband, were the only people qualified to lead the Muslim community, and thus people claiming such descent formed a religious aristocracy in northern Yemen.

One factor, which goes completely unmentioned here, is the US government’s support for the Al-Hadi regime, which was no less corrupt than that of its predecessor.

The late John Kennedy said it best: “When peaceful revolution is impossible, violent revolution is inevitable.”

It’s Starting: Russians and Chinese Are Ditching the Dollar and Europeans Are Using Renminbi in Their Reserves

From the throne of the world’s reserve currency, the Federal Reserve, with the power to print the US dollar, feels dangerously omnipotent.

They can get away with just about anything. For now.

The central bankers get to print dollars and spend them at current prices, before the stuff hits the wider market and diminishes its overall value.

And for the time being they don’t really face any consequences. The whole world just absorbs it. Other countries really have no other choice.

But they’re getting tired of putting up with this abuse, and the unrest is growing. New alliances are being made, this time to dethrone the dollar.

Just this week yet another currency swap agreement was made between the Chinese and Russian central banks. This time for 150 billion renminbi.

It is not a question of IF the US dollar is going to fall and fail; it is a question of when.

And to attempt to prevent that, look for this country to enter into wars it most likely cannot possibly win, with an horrific cost in blood and money.

The Pauperization of Workers in the UK and America

Here is what happened: workers benefited from rising real incomes during the three quarters of deflation in 2009 – which probably was responsible for firing up moribund consumer spending. But it didn’t last long. In 2011 and 2012, a burst of inflation took it all away again.

It’s only during periods of low inflation or actual deflation that modern American workers get real wage increases. Turns out, the mix of slight inflation and slight deflation is good for workers!

But there is another huge group of people that has been taken to the cleaners: savers. These conservative investors don’t want to lose, in rigged financial markets, 30% or 40% or 50% of what little they have during the last 10 or 20 or 30 years of their lives. Unlike young folks, they have no way of ever re-earning their hard-earned money a second time, so to speak.

Rep. Edward Royce, R-Calif., the chairman of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, expressed “deep concern” in a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry that visas were still being issued to nationals from the three most affected countries, Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone.

“It is my understanding that approximately 100 applicants for visas are visiting these three U.S. Embassies each day. Of course, once these individuals are issued a visa by the embassy, they are free to travel to the United States,” he said.

“I would strongly encourage the Department of State to immediately institute a temporary suspension of consular services – particularly the issuance of visas – for non-U.S. nationals…. This is a reasonable and immediately implementable containment measure that may help mitigate the risk [of Ebola],” he wrote.

Senior Republicans criticize Ebola ‘czar’ choice for lack of medical background

Senior Republicans on Capitol Hill Friday criticized Ron Klain, President Obama’s choice to be “Ebola czar,” as a figurehead with no health background.

“Given the mounting failings in the Obama administration’s response to the Ebola outbreak, it is right that the president has sought to task a single individual to coordinate its response, “said Rep. Ed Royce, R-Calif., chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee. “But I have to ask why the president didn’t pick an individual with a noteworthy infectious disease or public health background?”

Klain, a longtime political hand, served as chief of staff to Al Gore and Vice President Joe Biden but has no apparent medical or health care background.

Basically Obama has declared that it is okay to hire a pilot who does not know how to fly, a captain with no knowledge of navigation, and a bridge builder with no knowledge of engineering. I guess this is acceptable for a President with no knowledge of how to actually run a country!

 

 

History of Key Document in IAEA Probe Suggests Israeli Forgery

Western diplomats have reportedly faulted Iran in recent weeks for failing to provide the International Atomic Energy Agency with information on experiments on high explosives intended to produce a nuclear weapon, according to an intelligence document the IAEA is investigating.

But the document not only remains unverified but can only be linked to Iran by a far-fetched official account marked by a series of coincidences related to a foreign scientist that that are highly suspicious.

The original appearance of the document in early 2008, moreover, was not only conveniently timed to support Israel’s attack on a U.S. National Intelligence Estimate on Iran in December that was damaging to Israeli interests, but was leaked to the news media with a message that coincided with the current Israeli argument.

The IAEA has long touted the document, which came from an unidentified member state, as key evidence justifying suspicion that Iran has covered up past nuclear weapons work.

 

 

The Satanic Conning Towers of Subliminal Hellfire.

Let me address a serious problem. It has come up at another blog and I sense it regardless. Yes… the world is a mess and it is getting messier. This recent emergence of Ebola and other expressions of material darkness being generated by the Satanic elite is/can be very troubling. Along with this growing menace there are all the other looming catastrophes. America, owned by bankers and Satanists (they are synonymous), is being steered into conflicts all over the world and domestically a police state is emergent. One can easily see that this Ebola menace is being generated by the people who run the governments in order to be able to apply martial law. It’s a good angle because people are susceptible to going along with evil policies if it appears they are being set into place to protect them. NOTHING could be further from the truth.

International Community Promises to Rebuild Gaza … with Sweat Shops to Exploit Palestinian Workers

When Israel’s international janitorial crew gathered this week in Cairo with a pledge to raise $5 billion to help rebuild the $8 billion in damage Israel caused to Gaza’s civilian population, it was assured by Israeli Minister of Transportation Yisrael Katz that its efforts were utterly futile. “The Gazans must decide what they want to be Singapore or Darfur,” Katz remarked, leveling the threat of genocide against the fantasy of economic prosperity. “They can pick between economic recovery and war and destruction. If they choose terror, the world should not waste its money. If one missile will be fired, everything will go down the drain.”

The message was not lost on the diplomats assembled in Cairo. As one told AFP, ”We have seen infrastructure projects that we have contributed to which have been destroyed.” The diplomat complained that the sustained Israeli assaults on Gaza’s infrastructure had prompted “considerable donor fatigue.”

 

 

More Than a Third of Oakland’s Fast Food Workers Can’t Afford Food

It seems the U.S. Forest Service recently published a 700-word guide on how to safely roast marshmallows. (The publication was released in time for Aug.30, which was officially, I kid you not, “National Roasted Marshmallow Day.” Your tax dollars at work.)

This comprehensive article suggests that a 10-foot buffer between children and a fire is a good rule of thumb. Roasting sticks should be at least 30 inches in length. (Do the math for how long a kid’s arm will have to be to roast marshmallows from 10 feet away with a 30-inch stick.)

 

 

Iran expert helping develop IoT platform

An Iranian expert and postdoctoral fellow at the University of British Colombia is helping develop a revolutionary platform for a new technology called the Internet of Things (IoT).

Ali Kashani, the Vancouver-based Energy Aware Technology’s vice president of software, is helping the company develop the Neurio platform, billed as a revolutionary new technology that makes an ordinary home smart.

The evolution of the IoT involves the embedding of sensors in physical objects. The sensors are, in turn, linked through networks to computers that analyze the vast amounts of data they produce.

Neurio’s development, however, has drawn upon the fact that all electronic devices have a power signature, hence just enlisting the help of a Wi-Fi power sensor.

Kashani has described Neurio as the “brain of the home,” not a “fancy” remote control, like other smart-home products.

U.S. is Responsible for the Ebola Outbreak in West Africa: Liberian Scientist

Is Dr. Broderick a conspiracy theorist? He says that “there is urgent need for affirmative action in protecting the less affluent of poorer countries, especially African citizens, whose countries are not as scientifically and industrially endowed as the United States and most Western countries, sources of most viral or bacterial GMOs that are strategically designed as biological weapons.” He also asks an important question when he says “It is most disturbing that the U.

#StopEbolaStrike: National Strike to Force Obama to Block West African Flights

Infowars.com is calling for a general strike across the United States in response to the federal government’s botched response to the Ebola outbreak and the Obama administration’s refusal to block flights coming in from West Africa.

Countries bordering those in West Africa impacted by the Ebola outbreak have been successful in stopping the spread of the virus by blocking flights, including Ivory Coast, Guinea-Bissau and Senegal, and yet the Obama administration has refused to do likewise despite innumerable public figures calling on the White House to take action.

Numerous airlines have also restricted flights to Ebola-affected countries and yet the United States remains wide open to potential Ebola patients not only via airports but also via the country’s porous southern border, where hundreds of illegal aliens from Ebola-hit countries have poured across in recent months.

Amid Assurances on Ebola, Obama Is Said to Seethe

Beneath the calming reassurance that President Obama has repeatedly offered during the Ebola crisis, there is a deepening frustration, even anger, with how the government has handled key elements of the response.

Those frustrations spilled over when Mr. Obama convened his top aides in the Cabinet room after canceling his schedule on Wednesday. Medical officials were providing information that later turned out to be wrong. Guidance to local health teams was not adequate. It was unclear which Ebola patients belonged in which threat categories.

“It’s not tight,” a visibly angry Mr. Obama said of the response, according to people briefed on the meeting.

The imprisoned children are even denied their basic rights, including education, proper treatment and medical care, he noted.

BEX ALERT – What’s more disturbing than Ebola? The outrageous commentary

Ebola isn’t transmitted through the air. It is transmitted through direct contact by bodily fluids with an Ebola-infected person showing symptoms of the disease.

CNN’s statement is the real outrageous comment. WHO says Ebola can travel through the air in aerosolized secretions. USAMRIID says Ebola can travel through the air in aerosolized secretions. The Canadian Health Service says Ebola can travel through the air in aerosolized secretions. The US Army training manual says Ebola can travel through the air in aerosolized secretions. The experience during the Reston Virginia outbreak says Ebola can travel through the air in aerosolized secretions. And it has been established that there is asymptomatic contagion in some humans, as well as dogs and pigs. Ebola can survive on contaminated surfaces for days. CDC is still pushing their claim that contagion is possible only through direct contact, yet their standards and protocols clearly came up short in Dallas. I understand that there is a desire to keep the public calm, to keep them flocking to the shopping malls and voting booths, but a certain degree of reality mixed with a touch of erring on the side of caution is justified here. The US response to Ebola is totally reactive right now. They are playing catch-up. And in a race like this there is no second place, only dead last!

FLASHBACK

Let’s set the record of events clear for the Ukraine. Up until a year or so ago Ukrainians were living together without widespread violence and civil war. For generations Ukraine has consisted mainly of ethnic local Ukrainians, and Russian ethnics who settled in the Ukraine generations ago. Ukraine was part of the Soviet Union until its collapse in 1991. The history of Europe is a soup of changing borders, ethnic migrations, cross border breeding, political and ethnic rivalries and contested political philosophies. This has been the case for thousands of years. Recently an American backed coup de tat was staged in Ukraine where the democratically elected government was physically thrown out of office and the elected President sought asylum in Russia, where he presently resides. The result was that the current junta, led by self proclaimed President Poroshenko, declared it is the government, without going to the people. The unelected Ukrainian government was and is supported by the USA, Britain, Australia and other but not all western governments.

Ethnic Russians in the Eastern Ukraine were not happy with this coup and began rebelling and continue to do so. The East Ukrainians probably receive moral and tangible support from Russia and it is provable that the western Ukrainians receive US moral and tangible support at least, and probably British support as well.

Australia must keep its nose out of this European civil war and must call for peace and dialogue as the head of the UN Security Council. Australia must never again become embroiled in any European conflict or messy political fight. The behaviour of Australian PM Tony Abbott and the Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop has been disgraceful since the downing of flight MH17 over the Ukraine. Abbott has been extremely wild and mischevious in his public statements and has in effect publicly called Russian President Putin a murderer and Bishop too has been hysterical and irresponsible. Both form part of a government which was elected around 10 months ago and which is way down already in the polls and the wild accusations, extreme far right statements and talk can only be seen as attempts to curry political favour at home and win back support. There will probably be some bounce in the polls for the government as it pulls at the emotional heart strings of the Australian people but this matter is not what the people will vote on in 2017, or whenever the next election is called. It maybe that we go to a double dissolution after all, using the backdrop of the tragedy of dead Australians in the Ukraine. Who know.

Finally, NOBDODY at this point in time, apart from the perpetrators, yet knows who was responsible for the downing of MH17.

Russian government orders extra airport facilities to prevent Ebola

It was the British establishment which sold out the Arab and Palestinian people to the Zionists, which resulted in the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948. Ignoring the fact that local Arab populations had supported the British during both world wars, particularly the Arabs and Bedouins who served with Lawrence of Arabia during WW1, the British establishment produced the Balfour Declaration which secretly promised world Zionism a base for their barbaric and hate filled culture, and that base was in Palestine. Lawrence himself was disgusted by the behaviour and policies of his own government.

Before the arrival of the Zionists, Jew and Muslim had lived happily side by side for generation after generation in Palestine. Don’t forget of course that, as George Bush Jnr said, these people hate us because we are free. Their hatred has nothing at all to do, of course, with the way we bomb, kill, main and uproot their mothers, children, grandparents and society in general………………KT

Olive trees burned as anti-Palestinian incitement grips Galilee

Osama Tannous has long campaigned for the municipal independence of Tarshiha, his hometown in the Galilee region of present-day Israel.

For decades, Tarshiha has been administratively connected to the neighboring Jewish-Israeli community of Maalot and the two share a municipality.

On all government records, paperwork and tax documents, the two have, since 1963, been classified as the town of Maalot Tarshiha. Yet the communities are geographically separated and local Palestinians have been campaigning for independent representation and municipal sovereignty for decades.

“It’s important to control your own land, institutions and budget,” Osama, a 29-year-old activist and pediatric physician, told The Electronic Intifada. “It is also politically necessary to break away from a colonial entity that was built on our land with a view that we’re the enemy.”

Last week, four students at Southern Oregon University were told by administrators that they must stop handing out copies of the United States Constitution on campus, or else the Police would be called, and disciplinary action would taken against them.

The administrators confronted the students, who were affiliated with Students for Concealed Carry, and reprimanded them, due to the fact that they were handing out literature, in an area that was outside of the university’s designated “Free Speech Zone.”

Students for Concealed Carry (SCC) is a nonpartisan student organization that promotes students’ rights to carry concealed weapons on campus. One member of the group, Stephanie Keaveney, told Campus Reform that administrators alleged that the four representatives from SCC had caused an “immediate panic for the safety of students in the face of gun violence, or the promotion of such.”

The letter warns that hosting the annual meeting of the American Studies Association (ASA), which recently voted to boycott Israeli academics, would place the hotel in violation of California law because it would make them party to discrimination on the basis of national origin, race and religion.

Because the boycott is specific to Israelis, the majority of whom are Jewish, the authors of the letter argue, the meeting is antisemitic in nature.

American Exceptionalism and Plain Stupidity

On October 2nd US Vice-President Joe Biden finally said what most of those working in the region already know. “America’s key allies in the Middle East are very much responsible for the rise of the Islamic State (IS), funding and equipping extremists – “let’s call them terrorists” – with money and weapons in their eagerness to oust the Assad regime in Syria, at any cost.”

The Project for a New American Century (PNAC) was founded by William Kristol, the chief of staff to Vice President Dan Quayle during the Bush senior administration, and Robert Kagan, a Senior Fellow at the Brookings Institute and a member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). The PNAC group’s stated objectives included the desire to “shape a new century favourable to American principles and interests” along with challenging “regimes hostile to U.S. interest and values”.

Will Washington succeed in having Northern Syria ethnically cleansed?

In Kobané and its region, where more than 300,000 Syrian Kurds are threatened with extermination by the Islamic Emirate, everyone can take the measure of NATO’s duplicity.

Mexico fails to grant access to cruise ship carrying Texas health worker

The cruise ship carrying a Texas health-care worker who “may have” handled lab specimens from Dallas Ebola victim Thomas Eric Duncan is headed back to the United States after Mexican authorities failed to grant permission for the ship to dock off the coast of Cozumel, according to a Carnival spokeswoman.

The Carnival Magic had been waiting off the Mexican coast since Friday morning for its scheduled port visit. Mexican authorities still hadn’t given clearance by noon, so the ship continued to its home port of Galveston, Tex., where it was due back on Sunday, according to Carnival.

Thousands Of MacBooks Made In 2011 Have Self-Immolating Graphics Cards

Models of Apple’s higher-end portable computer, the MacBook Pro, have come to the end of their three-year extended warranties. That leaves their owners at the mercy of Apple when something goes wrong, and at minimum thousands of the computers have had the same computer-killing problem with their graphics processing unit. Apple has not publicly admitted that the machines have a problem.

Of course, MacBook Pro owners are people who have spent at least $2,500 on a computer designed for serious graphics work. That means that they’re probably media professionals or serious amateurs, and able to make YouTube videos making fun of the situation with really great production values.

Very Encouraging. 4 out of 5 High Schoolers on a Bus have seen ‘Loose Change’ and believe the U.S. Government was behind 9/11

My daughter is a high school student. She rides a bus to and from school. During one of her bus rides, there were 5 students left on the bus and one began a conversation about what is happening in the U.S.. My daughter decided to ask in an off handed manner “Has anyone ever seen the video, ‘Loose Change’?”

She was shocked and amazed that 4 of the 5 students had watched it and said “OH, Yeah, the U.S. government was behind 9/11. The government is the one who did 9/11, not some man in a cave in Afghanistan!”

They all began sharing different things about the video and how they totally understand that the government committed 9/11 themselves.

EBOLA Texas: Three Schools Closed Friday Business Take Precautions

Is Dekalb County, Georgia Government Running An Immense Financial Scam?

David Simon
Activist Post

It seems that Dekalb County residents have had it with corruption and abuse from their representatives. According to a number of sources, it appears that what the government in Dekalb County, Georgia is doing is preying on its citizens, while Georgia state agencies are failing to protect them from predation. Indeed, it seems that Dekalb County government officials have taken a page from this corrupt government and from the bankers who have robbed the country blind, stolen homes, destroyed jobs and rigged the whole economy. The Dekalb County government deserves some sort of corruption medal for originality as they have now entered the territory of entirely fictional billing for water services…

 

 

$39,643,352 worth of NIH funding that could have gone to the Ebola vaccine

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has spent more than $39 million on obese lesbians, origami condoms, texting drunks, and dozens of other projects that could have been scrapped in favor of developing an Ebola vaccine.

“Frankly, if we had not gone through our 10-year slide in research support, we probably would have had a vaccine in time for this that would’ve gone through clinical trials and would have been ready,” said NIH Director Francis Collins, blaming budget cuts for his agency’s failure to develop a vaccine for the deadly virus.

However, the Washington Free Beacon has uncovered $39,643,352 worth of NIH studies within the past several years that have gone to questionable research.

For instance, the agency has spent $2,873,440 trying to figure out why lesbians are obese, and $466,642 on why fat girls have a tough time getting dates. Another $2,075,611 was spent encouraging old people to join choirs.

WEBMASTER ADDITION: The reason the public is getting panicked is not the Ebola but the government’s demonstrated mismanagement of this crisis.

But having survived for so long with lies, fraud, and deception, they are ill-equipped to deal with a real situation, and are still treating Ebola as if it is a public-relations problem. People remember that the government’s first response to Hurricane Katrina was to send armored tanks into New Orleans!

Ebola-Infected Nurse Amber Vinson ‘Felt Funny’ During Her Travels: CDC

Ebola-infected nurse Amber Vinson felt unwell while she was visiting Ohio last weekend, but did not show the typical symptoms of the virus. “There is some indication that she felt funny, that type of thing, during the time she was here,” Dr. Chris Braden of the Centers for Disease Control said at a Friday briefing. “She rested for a long time on some days, she said she felt funny. Those types of things but nothing specific.” Those details have led health officials to conclude that Vinson may have been sick as early as Oct. 10, when she flew from Dallas to Cleveland to plan for her upcoming wedding. The timing of when she fell ill is important because Ebola patients are only contagious when they are sick.

CDC is trying to spin its way out of having missed including Amber on the list of Dallas Hospital workers to be monitored, then goofing again when Amber called the CDC telling them she was ill, and the CDC told her she was okay to fly back to Dallas.

There ius another aspect of the CDC “guidelines” and “protocols” we need to be aware of. We all know about hypochondriacs; people who think they are ill all the time. My paternal grandfather was one of those. We dreaded the arrival of the Reader’s Digest because every time there was an article in the series “I am Joe’s Kidneys”, whatever Joe was suffering from, Grandpa was sure he had it as well. (One month Reader’s Digest had “I am Jane’s Ovaries” and things got really weird).

But there is an opposite condition called hyperchondria, often called anosognosia, or stoicism in which people who are ill refuse to admit it to themselves. It is these people, who are showing symptoms but refuse to acknowledge it, who will get on airplanes, go shopping, or worse, try to “work it off” by going to the gym. Clearly these people will evade the current CDC protocols.

Nurses: Michigan not prepared for EbolaKaren Bouffard, The Detroit News 8:09 a.m. EDT October 16, 2014

Nurses in Michigan and nationwide charged Wednesday they are not adequately prepared to care for Ebola patients, lacking both the training and proper equipment to deal with the deadly disease.

The Michigan Nurses Association called on Gov. Rick Snyder for greater leadership, even as state agencies and the Michigan State Police stepped up efforts to prepare for a possible outbreak.

Snyder spokesman Dave Murray said the administration is pushing the group for details about the complaints because its “statements are very general and broad.”

 

 

Still No Charges 3 Months After Eric Garner’s Chokehold Death

Chokeholds are dangerous and prohibited by the New York City Police Department. Yet on July 17, Officer Daniel Pantaleo wrapped his arm around the neck of Eric Garner, who had resisted arrest for selling untaxed cigarettes on Staten Island. In a viral video of the encounter, Garner can be heard repeatedly screaming, “I can’t breathe!” before his body goes still.

The medical examiner ruled the death a homicide, and “I can’t breathe!” became a rallying cry at a massive protest against police brutality in Tompkinsville, the neighborhood where Garner — who’d been caught on multiple occasions selling cigarettes illegally — was arrested for the last time.

Friday marks three months since the death of Garner, a 43-year-old father of six. For his family, it’s another milestone in justice that has been delayed.

 

 

Obama’s New Ebola ‘Czar’ Does Not Have Medical, Health Care Background

Frontier Airlines notifies 800 passengers they were on the plane that carried Amber Vinson as Ohio health officials monitor 16 people who had contact with her

The CDC and Frontier Airlines have widened their search for people possibly exposed to Ebola by sickened nurse Amber Vinson – including more than 800 passengers who unwittingly flew on a Frontier plane after Vinson.

Now that they are saying that Vinson was probably contagious on the first flight from Dallas to Cleveland, then additional cities served by that particular aircraft over the weekend have to be added to the list, including Denver, Phoenix, Seattle, and San Diego.

British Big Pharma warns Ebola vaccine will come ‘too late’ to halt spread

GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), a British multinational that produces pharmaceuticals, biologics and vaccines, said a working vaccine would not be readily available until late 2015, by which time the epidemic may have spread far beyond West Africa.

Joseph Goebbels had many affairs during his marriage to Magda. Reportedly, Joseph Goebbels had Jewish origins and was gay. Joseph Goebbels’ first girlfriend was Jewish.

U.S. Soldiers Get Just Four Hours of Ebola Training

As the U.S. military rushes to combat Ebola in West Africa, soldiers are receiving on-the-fly instructions on how to protect themselves against the deadly virus.

American military operations to fight Ebola in Africa are unfolding quickly—forcing the military to come up with some procedures and protocols on the fly.

Soldiers preparing for deployment to West Africa are given just four hours of Ebola-related training before leaving to combat the epidemic. And the first 500 soldiers to arrive have been holing up in Liberian hotels and government facilities while the military builds longer-term infrastructure on the ground.

Yep, it’s an invasion, not a rescue!

Pilot: ‘Others Have Called in Sick’ to Avoid Potential Ebola Contamination

“There are some crews that are starting to get a little antsy, and others have called in sick to avoid some trips,” said the pilot, speaking on condition of anonymity. “For just one flight from New York to West Africa, three different flight officers canceled and the reserve crew had to be called. Now these guys may have legitimately been sick, they’ll have to deal with that process on their own, but there does seem to be some fallout on the scheduling side because people are refusing to go.”

 

 

Ebola patient went through central TSA checkpoint at Cleveland Hopkins

The Transportation Security Administration is disinfecting all the security checkpoints at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport as a precaution because a passenger later identified with the Ebola virus traveled through the airport on Monday.

The Ebola patient who flew from Cleveland to Dallas/Forth Worth went through the central security checkpoint at Hopkins, prompting the TSA to do a disinfectant wipe-down of that screening checkpoint this afternoon.

So, for all day Tuesday, everyone who went through that TSA checkpoint was potentially exposed to Ebola.

 

 

A Different War-Is-Good-for-Us Argument

snip: Presumably Caverley would acknowledge that U.S. wars tend to be one-sided slaughters of people living in poor nations, and that some fraction of people in the United States are aware of that fact and oppose wars because of it. Presumably he is also aware that U.S. troops still die in U.S. wars and are still drawn disproportionately from the poor. Presumably he is also aware (and presumably he makes all of this clear in his book, which I have not read) that war remains extremely profitable for an extremely elite group at the top of the U.S. economy. Weapons stocks are at record heights right now. A financial advisor on NPR yesterday was recommending investing in weapons. War spending, in fact, takes public money and spends it in a way that very disproportionately benefits the extremely wealthy. And while public dollars are progressively raised, they are far less progressively raised than in the past.

 

 

Ebola Scare at Pentagon After Woman Who Was Recently in Africa Vomits on Tour Bus

The hazmat team was called out of “a complete abundance of caution,” Layman told Arlington News.

The woman has been transported to Virginia Hospital Center.

 

 

8 People In Ohio Under Quarantine As Officials Looking For Shoppers At Bridal Store Nurse With Ebola Visited

Eight individuals in northeast Ohio were under quarantine Thursday as health officials broadened the group of people being notified that they may have had contact with a Texas nurse who was diagnosed with Ebola after visiting the area.

I am glad Ohio is taking this more seriously that Obama is.

 

 

Whatever Happened to that Iranian Bomb Plot Case?

Publicity didn’t go as planned, as reporting of events immediately began to diverge from the usual pattern. Most significant were the strong assertions of doubt about the plot from those cited in the media as experts. At the polite end of the spectrum, Iran expert Volker Perthes says, “I don’t regard it as impossible but rather improbable.” Coverage was especially notable for how prominently the skeptics were featured and in how lacking most articles were in finding competing expert opinions to try to achieve the usual veneer of balance. (2 thumbs down!) The response of the general public, as judged by the comments sections of the news articles, was overwhelmingly incredulous and dismissive of the charges.

The government is still trying to play by the rules that worked in the 1950s and 1960s, when the American people were naive, and trusted the government and media to tell them the truth. But those days are gone forever, shattered by reckless lie after reckless lie, about Saddam’s nuclear weapons, unemployment, Ebola, and of course human-caused global warming. The corporate media and the US Government have a huge credibility problem of their own making, yet cannot think of any other way to move forward than by following each failed propaganda hoax with yet another propaganda hoax.

ISIS militants training to fly warplanes in Syria

Could ISIS fighters be training as warplane pilots capable of turning their weapons on coalition aircraft?

That’s the worrying prospect suggested by an unverified report from the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights that ISIS has three warplanes in its possession in northern Syria.

I am glad that CNN is honest enough to admit this report is unverified, as this story is clearly propaganda to justify a no-fly zone over Syria, ostensibly against ISIS, which has no aircraft. As anyone who knows anything about flying will tell you, you cannot take untrained people and put them into a fighter and expect a happy outcome. It takes years of training in smaller, slower aircraft before a pilot has the skills to handle a warplane. And, if ISIS had three captured warplanes in flyable condition, why not simply bomb them on the ground? As I said, this story is clearly propaganda to justify a no-fly zone over Syria.

 

 

FBI director to citizens: Let us spy on you

The expanding options for communicating over the Internet and the increasing adoption of encryption technologies could leave law enforcement agents “in the dark” and unable to collect evidence against criminals, the Director of the FBI said in a speech on Thursday.

I am going to take it from the above that FBI Director James B. Comey is tacitly admitting that our series of NSA encryption challenges did in fact defeat the NSA cryptographers.

So, Comey is trying to revive an idea from 1995 and declare that any encryption system not authorized for use by the government (meaning not including a back door for them to use) is a “weapon” whose purpose must be assumed to be criminal, and therefore punishable. Better copy off those code snippets in my challenge while you still can!

The new attitude is “Use A Secret Decoder Ring: Go To JAIL!”

The government wants us to trust them that they are only going to spy on criminals, but we already know this is a lie. The FBI and other US Intelligence agencies have been caught stealing personal data for cronies of the President and their own personal profit. The Fourth Amendment says that the government cannot peek into your personal life absent an actual accusation of a crime and given the tsunami of evidence that the government is not complying with its Constitutional limits, We The People have every right to secure our business secrets, photos of our scantily clad partners, my Aunt Mary’s Top Secret Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe, and everything else from a government that is itself the biggest criminal organization in the country.

Officials move to keep Dallas health workers home

Texas officials moved for the first time Thursday to force health care workers who had contact with a dying Ebola patient to stay home, reversing course after a nurse later diagnosed with the disease flew across the Midwest and deepened anxiety about whether the virus would spread in the U.S.

Seventy-five Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas employees who had contact with Thomas Eric Duncan were asked to sign legal documents in which they agreed not go to public places or use mass transit, according to Judge Clay Jenkins, top administrator for Dallas County.

That NBC news crew made the same promise.

 

 

Dallas Hospital Had the Ebola Screening Machine That the Military Is Using in Africa

The military is using an Ebola screening machine that could have diagnosed the Ebola cases in Texas far faster, but government guidelines prevent hospitals from using it to actually screen for Ebola.

It’s a toaster-sized box called Film Array, produced by a company called BioFire, a subsidiary of bioMérieux and it’s capable of detecting Ebola with a high degree of confidence — in under an hour.

Incredibly, it was present at Dallas Presbyterian Hospital when Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan walked through the door, complaining of fever and he had just come from Liberia. Duncan was sent home, but even still, FDA guidelines prohibited the hospital from using the machine to screen for Ebola.

Government regulation will be the death of us all. FDA is still blocking any tests of non-silver or echinacea against Ebola, and only allowing new treatments by the big pharmaceutical companies to move forward.

Exodus campaign to Berlin sparks outrage in Israel

A group of young Israeli expats have unleashed controversy back home by encouraging others to join them in Berlin, touching on two of the most sensitive issues in Israel: the country’s high cost of living and Jews’ tortured history with Germany.

While Israelis have been angered after learning that food prices are much lower in Germany, they are also outraged that the youngsters’ form of protest has been to give up on the Zionist dream by leaving the Jewish state, and relocate to the birthplace of the Nazi Party to boot. It rankles many in a society that once considered emigration shamefully akin to treason, at a time when many Israelis want to stick together after a brutal summer war in Gaza underscored greater political and security woes in Israel.

The Nazis are gone, and Germany is a very lovely place to live!

Lupica: CDC finally reveals truth by saying it knows little about how Ebola is spread

Under questioning from Congress on how two Dallas nurses contracted Ebola, Tom Frieden of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said, ‘While we do not yet know exactly how these transmissions occurred ….’ Right there, at last, Frieden said what he should have been saying all along, that he and everybody else only knew what they thought they knew about Ebola.

 

 

Amber Vinson Fiance May Have Ebola; Under Quarantine in Dallas and Works in Lewisville

The fiance of Amber Joy Vinson, the second person to contract the Ebola virus in the United States, is under quarantine in Texas.

No name or age has been given for the fiance, who is in Dallas under self-quarantine, which basically means that he’ll avoid contact with others and alert officials if he shows any symptoms.

The man isn’t showing signs of the virus as of yet but will stay home from work for the next three weeks to play it safe, reported WFAA.

His employer, NationStar Mortgage in Lewisville, says the man called them and admitted that he’d been around Amber leading up to her diagnosis.

Senior management at the company believe everyone is safe.

Amber flew to Cleveland to plan her wedding, so it is a safe assumption the two were “in contact” during that weekend.

Fresh Ebola fears after a passenger flying from to Nigeria to JFK dies in his seat after vomiting profusely

A 63-year-old American man has died during a flight from Nigeria to New York’s JFK after vomiting profusely – but it was only a ‘cursory’ exam by the CDC that confirmed he did not have Ebola.

The unnamed passenger boarded an Arik Air plane out of Lagos, Nigeria, on Wednesday night, but passed away before the plane reached its final destination.

Flight attendants called the CDC, Port Authority and customs officials, who then boarded the plane in protective gear as it touched down, forcing 145 worried passengers to remain on board.

The authorities then conducted tests on the body and it was only a short evaluation that suggested he did not have the deadly virus, prompting concerns there are still ‘vulnerabilities’ at airports.

 

 

WHO Sounds The Alarm On Ebola: ‘The Situation Is Deteriorating’

While the US is panicking about three Ebola cases in one month, parts of West Africa are deteriorating rapidly, with little sign that the region is getting the outbreak under control.

Ebola has hit Liberia, Guinea, and Sierra Leone the hardest because these countries don’t have healthcare systems that are equipped to handle the disease.

Nurses at hospitals in these countries are “lightly trained and minimally protected” and Ebola patients are dying “surrounded by pools of infectious waste,” according to a report in The New York Times.

Some hospitals don’t have access to running water, soap, and clean needles, which are all crucial to controlling and preventing further spread of disease.

 

 

The Ebola Effect Arrives: Half Of Americans Will Avoid International Air Travel Out Of Ebola Fears

Remember when Obama said “Putin was isolated”, despite the Russian having the explicit support of the BRIC nations, and thus at least half of the world’s population? Well, as irony would always have it with this particular US president, the tables have promptly turned, and paradoxically where ISIS failed to “terrorize” Americans into a state of paralyzed daze, the West African virus has succeeded in isolating none other than America, and as a brand new Reuters poll reveals, nearly half of Americans are so concerned about the Ebola outbreak that they are avoiding international air travel!

In other words, global trade, commerce and simply transit, already declining thanks to the global depression rematerializing now that the Fed’s latest placebo round has worn off, are about to slam into a brick wall.

I am referring to the fact that a second health care worker in Dallas has now tested positive for Ebola, after contact with Duncan, the original carrier. This after CDC engaged in all kinds of decidedly bold braggadocio about how they had this situation under control, they were going to stop Ebola in its tracks, and, yes, there really is a Santa Claus.

Nano-silver in Sierra Leone

“This Works! People are getting better.”

Hon. Alpha Kanu, Minister of Information, Republic of Sierra Leone

 

 

Sierra Leonean minister advocates use of new drug to treat Ebola

Sierra Leone`s Information Minister, Alpha Kanu has said the controversial Ebola treatment solution, Nano Silver, does not need any approval by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and that Sierra Leone was considering using it to treat Ebola patients.
Nano Silver is a natural solution-based treatment therapy. While it is not specifically made for Ebola but its proponents say it slows down the development of the virus. However, those opposed to it say it is unsafe.

Sierra Leone has been awaiting an assessment of a batch of the solution.

Kanu, a chemist by training, has been a fervent supporter of the idea of deploying any treatment that can help alleviate the suffering of infected Ebola patients.

The US FDA is known to be vehemently opposed to the use of the drug which it considers as a fertilizer.

And yet the FDA does approve the use of a patented adaptation of nano-silver as a burn therapy! The FDA is not protecting the public. They are protecting the profits of the big pharmaceutical corporations.

America’s Grand Fortunes Go Overboard

Imagine yourself part of the typical American family. Your household would have, the Federal Reserve reported in September, a net worth of $81,200.

That’s not a whole lot of money. But half of America’s households would actually have less wealth than you do.

Now imagine that your net worth suddenly quadrupled, to about $325,000. That sum would place you within the ranks of America’s most affluent 20 percent of income earners. You would be “typical” no more. On the other hand, you still wouldn’t be rich, or even close to possessing a grand fortune.

WAPO – A professor in U.S. is telling Liberians that the Defense Department ‘manufactured’ Ebola

As those military doctors and officials begin what will be a difficult task, among the challenges they face are rumors that spread fear — fear of Ebola, fear of quarantine measures and fear of doctors. Already, several medical workers have been murdered in Guinea — throats slit, bodies dumped in a latrine. Then six Red Cross volunteers were attacked earlier this week while they tried to collect the body of an Ebola victim.

And now, in what may plant further seeds of mistrust and suspicion, a major Liberian newspaper, the Daily Observer, has published an article by a Liberian-born faculty member of a U.S. university implying the epidemic is the result of bioterrorism experiments conducted by the United States Department of Defense, among others.

Which was the policy set forth in National Security Study Memorandum 200 back during the Nixon years.

However, the report said, the US withheld information about the discoveries as those weapons were manufactured in the 1980s when the US and its allies were actively supplying chemical agents to Saddam Hussein’s regime during the Iraq-Iran war.

World braces as deflation tremors hit Eurozone bond markets

Eurozone fears have returned with a vengeance as deepening deflation across Southern Europe and fresh turmoil in Greece set off wild moves on the European bond markets.

Yields on 10-year German Bund plummeted to an all-time low on 0.72pc on flight to safety, touching levels never seen before in any major European country in recorded history. “This is not going to stop until the European Central Bank steps up to the plate. If it does not act in the next few days, this could snowball,” said Andrew Roberts, credit chief at RBS.

“The forces of monetary deflation are gathering,” said CrossBorderCapital. “Global liquidity is declining and central banks are not doing enough, either in the West or the East to offset the decline. This may not be a repeat of 2007/2008, but it is starting to look more and more like another 1997/1998 episode.” This is a reference to the East Asia crisis and Russian default triggered by withdrawal of dollar liquidity.

 

 

Ebola outbreak projections for the United States defy CDC’s false assurances

After watching the testimony of CDC director Tom Friedan (and others) before a congressional committee today, it is abundantly obvious that no official source is going to tell the truth about the realistic danger of an exploding Ebola outbreak in the United States. Under the leadership of Frieden, the CDC has reached a state of delusional denial that staggers the mind, continuing to insist that Ebola cannot be spread through indirect contact (i.e. via contaminated surfaces).

The droning mantra of the CDC has now become, “We will consider any options that help reduce risk to Americans.” Yet somehow those options do not include air travel isolation — a fundamental tool in halting any pandemic outbreak.

 

 

Whistleblower nurse describes ‘chaos’ at US Ebola hospital Briana Aguirre claims she was given a hazmat suit with a large hole in it

The hospital at the centre of America’s Ebola outbreak admitted on Thursday that it had made mistakes and apologised, as a whistleblowing nurse described scenes of “chaos” there.

The admission came as Briana Aguirre, a nurse, described scenes of “chaos” at the hospital, with staff having no idea how to tackle the virus. She said the hazmat suit she was issued had a large gap in the neck and that materials used to treat suspected Ebola patients were left festering in corridors for days.

She claimed that suspected Ebola patients were wheeled around the hospital without protection and that doctors were told it was acceptable to move between rooms without disinfecting.

She said: “I can no longer defend my hospital at all. I’m embarrassed for my hospital. I watched them violate basic principles of nursing care, of medical care.”

It is still unclear whether Badr took part in the clashes, which the Israeli army described as an “illegal riot”.

Obama: I Kissed The Ebola Nurses

President Barack Obama boasted that he kissed nurses at the Atlanta hospital where Ebola patients were being treated.

Obama made clear that he is not afraid of Ebola, saying Wednesday, ”I shook hands with, hugged, and kissed, not the doctors, but a couple of the nurses at Emory because of the valiant work that they did,” Obama said. “In treating one of the patients, they followed the protocols, they knew what they were doing, and I felt perfectly safe doing so.”

Even with the recent screw-ups I cannot imagine the secret service allowing the President to kiss any nurse who had actually been near the area where the Ebola patients are being treated. This appears to be a repeat of Obama’s swim in the Gulf of Mexico following the explosion of the Deepwater Horizon, only it was later revealed that the swim had actually taken place in a swimming pool near the edge of the gulf.

Even this story admits Obama kissed the nurses weeks ago before Ebola was even there! What is alarming about this story is that Obama is still looking at Ebola as a public relations issue. His goal is to keep everyone calm, keep them using the airlines, keep them going to the shopping malls, and make sure they show up at those voting booths next month. As a side note, the “nurse” appears to be wearing a patient wrist band and if they are following the standard color codes, this patient is considered at risk for falling, suggesting recovery from an injury to the leg or foot.

A controversial police tactic that lets cops seize large amounts of suspicious cash has been aided by a family-owned company that won millions in federal contracts, Robert O’Harrow and Michael Sallah write in The Washington Post.

That company, Desert Snow, has trained cops around the US on the art of roadside asset forfeiture, which allows police to take cash or other assets they believe have been illegally obtained. Cops can take these assets from people even if they’re never convicted of or even charged with a crime, and people must go to court to get their stuff back.

Senate’s inquiry into CIA torture sidesteps blaming Bush, aides

A soon-to-be released Senate report on the CIA doesn’t assess the responsibility of former President George W. Bush or his top aides for any of the abuses of the agency’s detention and interrogation program, avoiding a full public accounting of one of the darkest chapters of the war on terror.

“This report is not about the White House. It’s not about the president. It’s not about criminal liability.

Earlier this year, Chicago shorted their yellow traffic lights by fractions of a second and it resulted in nearly 8 million dollars from an additional 77,000 tickets

All yellow traffic lights are not created equal, it seems. Especially in Chicago.
Earlier this year, the city began issuing tickets to motorists who drove through yellow lights that turned red fractions of a second shorter than the three-second city minimum. The change was slight, but the effect for the cash-starved city was real: nearly $8 million from an additional 77,000 tickets, according to the city’s inspector general.

10 Questions for The WHO About Ebola

Activist Post

The World Health Organization is claiming that we are facing the most severe health crisis ever with the alleged Ebola outbreak in West Africa.

But since the WHO was caught inflating the Swine Flu pandemic to hoist experimental vaccines on the world, perhaps we should not just take them on their word without demanding evidence…

Drexel Study Claims 21 Day Quarantine For Ebola Might Not Be Long Enough

A new Drexel study published in the journal PLOS One suggests 21 days might not be a long enough quarantine period for those who have been exposed to the Ebola virus.

The research, which was conducted by Professor Charles Haas, PhD, and used data from both previous outbreaks and the first nine months of the current outbreak, claims that there is still a .1 to 12% risk of that person developing the virus if they are released from quarantine after 21 days.

“In other words from 0.1 to 12% of the time, an individual case will have a greater incubation time than 21 days,” Haas concludes.

The current WHO guidance on quarantining people for Ebola is 21 days, which is based on the supposed 2-21 day incubation period; however, Haas suggests a broader look at the risk factors and the costs and benefits when setting a quarantine standard.

 

 

Texas Hospital Director ‘Deeply Sorry’ for ‘Mistakes’

An official at the Dallas hospital where two nurses contracted Ebola told Congress on Thursday that emergency staff were not trained this summer on how to handle the virus, despite warnings from health officials about the outbreak in West Africa.

The official, Dr. Daniel Varga, apologized to a House committee and said that authorities were still trying to determine exactly how the nurses were infected.

 

 

Obama may call on reserves to deal with Ebola in Africa

President Obama has issued an executive order allowing the Pentagon to call up reserve troops to combat the Ebola crisis in Africa.

Obama notified Congress of his order Thursday. It reads: “I hereby determine that it is necessary to augment the active Armed Forces of the United States for the effective conduct of Operation United Assistance, which is providing support to civilian-led humanitarian assistance and consequence management support related to the Ebola virus disease outbreak in West Africa.

The Pentagon is identifying gaps that active-duty troops cannot fill, said a Defense Department official who was not authorized to speak publicly about the issue. Among the specialists that might be tapped: technical engineering, communication systems, logisticians, comptrollers and religious specialists.

All reservists called to duty will be given proper training and medical-threat briefings, the official said.

 

 

White House rejects calls for Ebola travel ban

Warning that Americans are losing faith in their government’s ability to stop Ebola, Republican lawmakers on Thursday pressed for a ban on travel to the U.S. from the West African outbreak zone. The White House resisted the idea and tried to tamp down fear as the pool of Americans being monitored expanded.

 

 

Obama Misrepresents the Russian Economy

A report posted October 15th at Russia Insider, a Russian website, headlined “Russian Industry Expands Rapidly In September, Hammers Expectations: Fastest growth since 2012. Manufacturing up 3.6%. Food production shows double digit growth.” This contradicts many reports in U.S. media, which take unquestioningly the Obama Administration’s assertions that the Russian economy is doing poorly as a result of Obama’s sanctions against Russia. Russia has responded to those sanctions by simply increasing its trading with other nations, which aren’t within the U.S. orbit (and also its trading internally, within Russia itself).

You won’t believe the CDC told this lie

“During the pandemic, CDC provided estimates of the numbers of 2009 H1N1 cases, hospitalizations and deaths on seven different occasions. Final estimates were published in 2011. These final estimates were that from April 12, 2009 to April 10, 2010 approximately 60.8 million cases (range: 43.3-89.3 million), 274,304 hospitalizations (195,086-402,719), and 12,469 deaths (8868-18,306) occurred in the United States due to pH1N1.”

SIXTY MILLION cases of Swine Flu in America.

One out of every five people in the US had Swine Flu.

Sixty million.

This lie takes the cake.

‘Assassination’ of Public Health Systems Driving Ebola Crisis, Experts Warn

As the official West African death toll in the worst Ebola outbreak in recorded history nears 5,000, global concerns about the highly infectious disease continue to mount. Analysts and medical providers, from Liberia to the United States, say that in order to address the crisis, the international community must tackle the real culprit: western-driven economic policies defunding public health systems around the world, particularly in the countries hit hardest by the outbreak.

“The neoliberal economic model assassinated public infrastructure,” said Emira Woods, a Liberia native and social impact director at ThoughtWorks, a technology firm committed to social and economic justice, in an interview with Common Dreams. “A crisis of the proportion we’ve seen since the beginning of the Ebola catastrophe shows this model has failed.”

 

 

Leaked TPP Chapter Exposes Sweet Deals for Big Pharma and US Bully Tactics

WikiLeaks on Thursday released a second updated version of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) Intellectual Property Rights chapter, charging that it will hinder affordable access to medicines globally, increase online surveillance, and impinge on civil liberties while benefiting Big Pharma and other corporate interests.

“Our first impression in reading the document is the extent to which the United States has sought hundreds of changes in intellectual property norms, some small and subtle, others blunt and aggressive, nearly of all of which favor big corporate right holders, and undermine the public’s freedom to use knowledge,” declared James Love of Knowledge Ecology International.

The TPP is the world’s largest economic trade agreement that will, if it goes into effect, encompass more than 40 percent of the world’s GDP. The IP chapter covers topics from pharmaceuticals, patent registrations, and copyright issues to digital rights.

The U.S. is again at war there, bombing freely across Iraq and Syria, advising here, droning there, coalition-building in the region to loop in a little more firepower from a collection of recalcitrant allies, and searching desperately for some non-American boots to put on the ground.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!

“Apparently, the leading cause of hard drive failures is subpoenas.” — David Burge

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!

“‘In war’ answered the weaver,’ the strong make slaves of the weak, and in peace the rich make slaves of the poor. We must work to live, and they give us such mean wages that we die. We toil for them all day long, and they heap up gold in their coffers, and our children fade away before their time, and the faces of those we love become hard and evil. We tread out the grapes, and another drinks the wine. We sow the corn, and our own board is empty. We have chains, though no eye behold them; and we are slaves, though men call us FREE.'” — Oscar F W Wilde 1854 born in Dublin

Gen. Allen: US Won’t Coordinate With Existing Syrian Rebels

Speaking to reporters today at the State Department, Gen. John Allen, who has been advising President Obama on his new war against ISIS, today revealed that the administration has no plans to ever coordinate with the Free Syrian Army (FSA) or any other of the existing rebel factions.

That’s a surprise, because officials have been harping on for years about how great these factions are, and have been lavishing them with US arms and funding.

The FSA is forever complaining about not getting enough aid from the US, as their way of explaining how years of rebellion has them with virtually no territory and sloughing off fighters to ISIS and other more successful factions at an alarming rate. Now, the US appears to be comfortable just cutting them loose.

This administration is pathologically incapable of looking toward long-term strategies to keep the US safe and prosperous.

Attacking Syria, with any US-led assets, is not something that will make this country more safe and prosperous.

The only reason that the US government wants al-Assad out in Damascus is to pave the way for an invasion of Iran, and create regime change in Tehran.

And NO POLITICAL ENTITY wants this more than the government in Tel Aviv.

Someone needs to be reminded, in the bowels of the halls of power in DC, that not everything that is in Israel’s best interests are not at all in We the People’s best interest.

Certainly not for those military personnel who will be dispatched to fight, get killed or maimed for life, in this potential military misadventure.

The coming round of talks with Iran, I would be willing to bet, will consist of the US attempting to “run out the clock”, as one says in football, then the complete abandonment of any talks after this.

Many Russian military and politicians have stated very bluntly that any attack against Iran will be seen as an attack against Russia’s national interests.

IF, in fact, the US attacks Iran, it may be looking at a war against Russia. At this time in our history, the US does not have the money, the troop strength, or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to a war against Russia, and that is what makes the military scenario so scarily dangerous.

 

 

An Egyptian Intervention in Libya

Two Egyptian officials claimed the country’s warplanes had begun bombing positions in Benghazi, the second-largest city in neighboring Libya, on Wednesday, in an attempt to wrest control of the city from the Ansar-al-Sharia Islamist militia. The mission, which will be led by Libyan pilots, marks the highest-profile collaboration between the two North African countries, both of which are beset by instability, since they experienced simultaneous Arab Spring revolutions in 2011. The Egyptian government has officially denied the news.

According to the Associated Press, the mission is slated to last three to six months and will “eventually involve Libyan ground troops recently trained by Egyptian forces.”

 

 

Ebola epidemic might trigger major food crisis – UN

The United Nations and non-governmental organizations believe an Ebola crisis that continues to strengthen in the coming months will cause food shortages that could devastate regions in West Africa hit hardest by the virus.

The UN World Food Program (WFP) said it is ramping up efforts to feed more people in Liberia, Guinea, and Sierra Leone, the trio of nations at the epicenter of the latest Ebola virus outbreak that has claimed over 4,000 lives. Border and market closures, restricted movements, and fear of the virus threaten food access in these areas, experts say.

‘Origami’ condoms, Michelle Obama gardening games and poop-throwing chimps: NIH spent millions on wacky projects but now complains cuts killed off Ebola vaccine research

The $30 billion U.S. National Institutes of Health blamed tightening federal budgets on Monday for its inability to produce an Ebola vaccine, but a review of its grant-making history in the last 10 years has turned up highly unusual research that redirected precious funds away from more conventional public health projects.

The projects included $2.4 million to develop ‘origami’ condoms designed with Japanese folding paper in mind, and $939,000 to find out that male fruit flies prefer to romance younger females because the girl-flies’ hormone levels drop over time.

Other winners of NIH grants consumed $325,000 to learn that marriages are happier when wives calm down more quickly during arguments with their husbands, and $257,000 to make an online game as a companion to first lady Michelle Obama’s White House garden.

The agency also spent $117,000 in taxpayers’ grant dollars to discover that most chimpanzees are right-handed.

Saudi Arabia sentences reformist Shiite cleric to ‘crucifixion’

Raising fears of renewed sectarian tensions in the region, Saudi Arabia’s top court has sentenced a charismatic opposition leader to death for speaking out against the kingdom’s ruling family.

Nimr Baqer al-Nimr, a reformist cleric, has repeatedly called for an end to corruption and discrimination against minorities. He has a wide following, particularly among young people in Saudi Arabia’s Eastern Province, home to most of the country’s minority Shiites, who are considered heretics by the Sunni-ruled government.

After being imprisoned for nearly two years, al-Nimr appeared in Riyadh’s Specialized Criminal Court Wednesday with his lawyer and two brothers. Charged with terrorism offences and “breaking allegiance to the king,” the judge upheld the country’s harshest sentence — “crucifixion” — where the decapitated body is publicly displayed. His brothers were reportedly detained after the sentencing.

WOW!! The Saudi government and its royalty have almost caught up with ISIS in terms of Medieval barbarism, and that is just my point.

And it is THIS government with which the US is BFF in the Middle East?!? IF we are judged by the company we keep, as a nation, we are in deep trouble here.

Because Saudi Arabia and the US government are inextricably entwined geopolitically, I would almost be willing to bet that you will get absolutely no corporate coverage of the execution itself, or the aftermath, the parading of the headless corpse, in US corporate non-news stations.

And a memo to the House of Saud and its judiciary: making a martyr out of this guy may well up the ante for religious unrest and demonstrations in your country, rather than smothering it.

In the 21st century, the parading of his corpse may well cause riots, intense enough that your military personnel will not be able to put them down.

 

 

As Fear of Ebola Spreads, Ohio and Texas Close Some Schools

Four Years Ago….Obama administration scraps quarantine regulations

The Obama administration has quietly scrapped plans to enact sweeping new federal quarantine regulations that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention touted four years ago as critical to protecting Americans from dangerous diseases spread by travelers.The regulations, proposed in 2005 during the Bush administration amid fears of avian flu, would have given the federal government additional powers to detain sick airline passengers and those exposed to certain diseases. They also would have expanded requirements for airlines to report ill passengers to the CDC and mandated that airlines collect and maintain contact information for fliers in case they later needed to be traced as part of an investigation into an outbreak.

Ebola Is Airborne, University Of Minnesota CIDRAP Researchers Claim

Ebola is airborne, according to a new report by the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy (CIDRAP) at the University of Minnesota. Researchers at the university just advised the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) that “scientific and epidemiologic evidence” now exists that proves Ebola has the potential to be transmitted via exhaled breath and “infectious aerosol particles.”

Ebola was known to be airborne all the way back during the Reston outbreak of 1990 (and strongly suspected in Africa before that). What I want to know is what politician decided to assure us all that Ebola was NOT airborne to make sure we kept going to the shopping malls for the Christmas shopping season!

This reminds me of when the “New NASA” was created in the 1970s. Control of the science was taken away from the scientists and handed to a bunch of MBAs, marketing people, and political cronies who celebrated their elevation by replacing the NASA “meatball” logo with “The Worm” and otherwise mucking things up. They survived on the basis of already existing missions and technology but over time the chronic mismanagement caught up with them as typified by launching Challenger in freezing weather to “stay on schedule” (with the Teacher in Space on board) despite the Morton Thiokol engineers saying it was a bad idea, and saving a few bucks by launching Columbia without carrying any means to actually go out and check if there really was a huge #$^ing hole in the port side wing root!

Science is not subordinate to politics. It never has been, and every attempt to overrule that wisdom has always ultimately led to disaster!

Niagara Falls, N.Y. over $400,000 in arrears on water bill; water department quadruples charge for fire hydrants

NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (WGRZ-TV) A decision by the Niagara Falls Water Board to quadruple rates for fire hydrants has left the city with a $400,000 bill, which it has yet to pay as it contests the enormous fee increase.

The Niagara Falls City Council tabled a resolution Tuesday that would have paid the majority of the money, giving council members two more weeks to figure out a strategy to negotiate with the Water Board.

In 2012, the Water Board decided to increase the fixed annual rate of $25 per fire hydrant to $103 per fire hydrant, representing a 312 percent hike. With more than 2,000 hydrants located in the City of Niagara Falls, the municipality saw its annual bill to the Water Board jump from $57,175 to $215,064 for both 2012 and 2013. For the past two years, the city has attempted to contest the bill and, as a result, now owes a full bill and late fees totaling $405,360.

 

 

Politicians Try to Make Ebola a Partisan Issue for the Upcoming Election … But BOTH Parties Dropped the Ball

The Dallas Morning News notes:

The political blame game over the deadly Ebola virus is in full swing just weeks before the November elections — with each side ignoring the facts.

First Dallas nurse to contract Ebola headed for D.C. suburb

Officials announced Thursday that first Texas nurse to contract Ebola while treating a Liberian patient is scheduled to be transferred to a leading research center in suburban Washington.

Nina Pham, 26, will be taken to the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland, from Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas, said Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

Fabrication in BBC Panorama’s ‘Saving Syria’s Children’

The report contained harrowing scenes of teenage boys and young men, their skin apparently in tatters, racing into what the report describes as “a basic hospital funded by handouts” to be treated for burns. In one particularly disturbing scene a tableau of young men writhe, drool and groan, seemingly in great distress.

On further viewings, however, this scene in particular is strikingly odd. The young men are quiet and mostly static until spotting the camera upon them, at which point the central figure (Mohammed Asi) raises his arm and the group instantly becomes animated and begins groaning in unison.

The Center for Jewish Life is stifling free speech at Princeton University

I have never met Slav Leibin.

Nonetheless, it recently came to my attention that he vetoed, with the approval of the Center for Jewish Life, my right to participate in a proposed panel on the recent hostilities in Gaza. Apparently this preemptive act of exclusion was carried out on entirely political grounds. This strikes me as an attempt to stifle the exchange of views on an important, if contentious, issue of concern to many in the Princeton University community — an egregious violation of our community’s values.

Gaza and the West Bank: Israel’s two approaches and Palestinians’ two bleak choices

The areas now known as the West Bank and Gaza, despite geographic differences, were once similar in social, cultural and economic terms. But through a long process of one occupation after another, they were set apart and differentiated.

Israel’s recent incursion in Gaza follows a pattern of harsher policies of suppression, compared to its counterpart to the East, after the two territories were created in 1948.

“Imminent Ebola Epidemic Is A Certainty” Says Texas Officials & Healthcare Workers

Texas officials and healthcare workers from around the state are urgently warning friends and family that an “imminent Ebola epidemic is a certainty.”

This is not a test.

The individual quoted also has direct relationships with members of the Texas State Legislature and staff within the Texas Governors office.

The reason for concern is not only all the bad judgement calls from CDC about how infective Ebola is, but that everything the government is doing is reactive, such as the Ebola SWAT teams. They are playing catch up. And in a race like this there is no second place, only dead last!

U.S. Response to Ebola: We Don’t Have the “Strongest” Medical System In the World … Only the Most EXPENSIVE

U.S. medical officials have repeatedly said – almost like a mantra – that Ebola can’t possibly effect our country because we have the “strongest” and “best” medical system in the world.

Were they speaking as scientists … or salesman? After all, the U.S. has the most expensive medical system in the world. And – like all good salesmen – they have to talk up and justify the super-pricey product.

In fact, independent studies rank the strength and quality of our system as low.

 

 

Ann Coulter – WE’LL TELL YOU HOW DANGEROUS EBOLA IS AFTER THE ELECTION

This summer, the U.S. government imposed a travel ban on Israel simply to pressure Prime Minister Netanyahu into accepting a ceasefire agreement. But we can’t put a travel restriction on countries where a contagious disease is raging.

It’s becoming increasingly clear this is just another platform for Obama to demonstrate that we are citizens of the world. The entire Ebola issue is being discussed — by our government, not the United Nations — as if Liberians are indistinguishable from Americans, and U.S. taxpayers should be willing to pay whatever it takes to save them.

Maybe we should give them the vote, too! If Ebola was concentrated in Finland and Norway — certainly Israel! — we’d have had a travel ban on Day One.

Well, this IS an historic occasion. I actually agree with Ann Coulter on something!!!!

U.S. Ebola Response to be Probed by Congress

Congressional lawmakers will probe the U.S. response to the Ebola outbreak on Thursday amid growing fears of wider transmission after two health-care workers who treated an infected patient were diagnosed with the disease.

The cottage is on fire and Congress sits down to discuss whether or not they should buy a fire extinguisher!

Fire (not to mention Ebola) is a very real danger, but this government was caught off guard because for the last several years all their time, energy, and OUR money has been spent on the fiction of human-caused global warming, not to mention propping up Wall Street, Israel, and arming the Syrian Rebels, even though the CIA said this was not likely to work. To that end, the Obama administration sold the fire extinguisher (canceled the CDC’s program to deal with a major epidemic outbreak in the US) back in 2010.

I understand that choosing a government is a political process. What I do not understand is allowing the political process to run the government!

UPDATE: So far the discussion is focused on getting a vaccine ready for sale and sending troops to Africa to save them from ISISbola!

U.N. Arms Treaty – An Attempt to Disarm America

Gun-control liberals have chosen an odd time to be foisting their misguided agenda on the American public. Consider the following facts about life in America. Felonious incidents such as assault and battery, car-napping, murder, abductions, robberies, school shootings, workplace violence, road rage, and home invasions are occurring at unprecedented levels. In fact, crime is up in most categories, except, that is, in communities where law-abiding citizens have legally armed themselves. In an Oklahoma company one employee was beheaded by a discontented Muslim extremist, but the lives of other employees were saved because a manager in the company was armed and took quick action. Although the mainstream media does much to cover up incidents in which lives are saved by armed Americans, this kind of thing happens all the time, and Americans know it. Consequently, citizens of all stripes—men and women, Democrats and Republicans—are arming themselves.

 

 

Chutzpah on Social Cohesion

When government politicians talk of social cohesion I get worried. My own MP, Richard Benyon, tweeted recently, “Working with organisations who promote cohesion is vital: ‘good work should not be derailed by local or international events.’”. Fine. Who could disagree? But his party, the co-ruling Conservative Party, has been associated with two think tanks, Policy Exchange and the Centre for Social Cohesion, described by SpinWatch as “two of Britain’s most influential right-wing think-tanks”, which “have used the fear of terrorism and of Islam to push an authoritarian political agenda”.

Obama Knew Arming Rebels Was Useless, But Did It Anyway

What’s worse: Launching a disastrous military campaign under false pretenses to achieve goals you wrongly believe are attainable? Or launching a disastrous military campaign you know is doomed in order to help your party win an election?

I ask in light of today’s New York Times story about how President Obama asked the CIA a while back whether arming rebel forces – pretty much the agency’s signature strategy — had ever worked in the past.

He was told that it almost never has.

But then in June, once the political pressure for intervention in Syria got too great, he did just that — sending weapons to rebels fighting the Syrian military.

Yes: He knew better, but he did it anyway.

 

 

No, There’s Still No Evidence There Was an Active WMD Program in Iraq

C.J. Chivers of the New York Times has a long piece today about chemical weapons found in Iraq after the 2003 invasion. A few dead-enders are now gleefully claiming that Bush was right after all. Iraq did have WMD!

This is ridiculous enough that—so far, at least—the savvier wing of the conservative movement is staying mum about the whole thing. There are three main reasons for this. First, most of these weapons were rotting remnants of artillery shells used during the Iraq-Iran war in the 80s and stored at Iraq’s Muthanna State Establishment as well as other nearby sites.

Fracking Earthquakes Confirmed (Again) in Ohio

Ohio is already on the map as one of the 6 states where earthquakes are a new feature of reality. And it’s one state where mainstream geologists and seismologists are now confirming the link between fracking and earthquakes that we have been suspecting all along…

“I am very upset by the fact that President Obama, while speaking from the United Nations’ podium and listing the threats and challenges humanity is currently facing, put Ebola in first place, the Russian Federation second and the Islamic State organization was only in the third place. I don’t even want to comment on this, this is some sort of aberration in the brain,” Dmitry Medvedev said in an interview with CNBC television.

 

 

Putin: If Ukraine siphons gas from pipeline, Russia will reduce Europe supplies

However, the Russian president pledged that Moscow will supply enough gas to Europe this winter.

The 4 Most Absurdly Expensive Versions of Filthy Products

If I’m going to buy a thing and its intended purpose is to get dirty, I’m not going to go for the most expensive version of that thing. That’s a basic understanding of the world most of us share. “Most” being the key word.

Some people who are mega-rich apparently don’t have that understanding. I know this because there are products that are normally inexpensive (for a reason) that come in decadent versions crafted specifically for the wealthiest people in the world. I’m talking everyday, basic things we all use and don’t think twice about, yet some rich people apparently prefer to have gold-plated and diamond-studded and slapped with price tags so outlandish they defy all logic and taste.

Confronting Battered Citizen Syndrome

James F. Tracy
Activist Post

State-sponsored terrorism poses a significant challenge to the psychological well-being of the body politic. While evident in many geopolitical locales, this condition arising from such government abuses is especially prevalent in the West. Such a disorder is comparable to the psychological manipulation recognized on a micro-level in some spousal relationships.

Indeed, the 13-year-old “war on terror” has contributed to a grave societal malady that might be deemed “battered citizen syndrome.” As the project of a transnational New World Order is laid out, the psychological constitution of the polity must necessarily experience perpetual crises and the threat thereof. Genuinely non-conventional political communication, organization and activism are among the few substantial means of combating battered citizen syndrome and the spiritual and psychological slavery it perpetuates…

During this briefing in Seoul, he said General Walter L. “Skip” Sharp suggested the US would use nuclear weapons if necessary in the event that North Korea moved across the demilitarised zone.

 

 

Six reasons why stock markets are tumbling

More than £46 billion was wiped off the stock market on Wednesday as fears over the health of the global economy caused the biggest dip in share prices for almost a year and a half.

In a blow to savers, the FTSE 100 fell 181 points, 2.8 per cent, to just 6212 – its lowest since the summer of 2013. Financial markets around the world experienced a similar plight. The market recovered slightly on Thursday morning, but is still almost 10 per cent down on its 6880 peak in early September.

Here, in no particular order, are some of the reasons…

Four out of five hospitals inspected by regulators are not safe, according to new annual ratings of NHS trusts which watchdogs have branded “shocking”.

The report from the Care Quality Commission (CQC), the inspectorate for health and social care, details findings from the first year of a new style of inspections, which will give all hospitals, care homes and GP surgeries Ofsted-style ratings.

The regulator said “the public is being failed” by the numerous hospitals, care homes, and doctors surgeries unable to meet basic standards, in a report which vows to call time on an “unacceptable lottery” in care.

 

 

In the last days of ‘Operation Protective Edge’ Israel focused on its final goal — the destruction of Gaza’s professional class

The bombing of these buildings was the finale of Israel’s mass destruction of the Gaza Strip, flattening landmark towers that provided essential social and economic functions, and which stood as symbols of the besieged coastal strip’s beleaguered professional class. While the war began with the flattening of the areas the Israeli military considers Gaza’s “hard shell” — border areas like Shujaiya and Khuza’a — it ended with a brazen assault on its soft core. The targeting of the professional class, a key pillar of Palestinian society generally considered unsympathetic to the political goals of Hamas, was a new front of economic and social warfare on Gaza.

He left the intriguing thought hanging in the air.

Right now, there is the presumption that the easing is over and they are going to raise interest rates. Guess what? If the stock market continues going as it is and the economy starts turning down, I think the Fed is going back to easing (money printing) again. They will use the economy as cover for its actions in trying to prop up the stock market and trying to prop up the banking system. The Fed’s primary function in life is to prop up the banking system. A weak economy is not good for the banking system.

Scientists find vitamin D is crucial in human immune response to tuberculosis

Vitamin D — a natural hormone, rather than a vitamin — is known to be instrumental in bone development but also may protect against cancer and autoimmune diseases and fight infections.

In a study published online Oct. 12 in the peer-reviewed journal Science Translational Medicine, researchers examined the mechanisms that govern the immune system’s ability to kill or inhibit the growth of pathogens such as Myobacterium tuberculosis, the bacteria that causes tuberculosis.

The team found that T cells, which are white blood cells that play a central role in immunity, release a protein called interferon-g that triggers communication between cells and directs infected immune cells to attack the invading tuberculosis bacteria. However, this activation requires sufficient levels of vitamin D to be effective.

Ebola: A Symptom of Economic Inequality

Of the many strands that, woven together, make up one of the world’s greatest rivers, the Congo, there is one which enters the river’s main waters as the great river arches to its most northern latitude. Starting from the southeast regions of what is today the Democratic Republic of the Congo, it first stretches almost due north, its main artery referred to as the Lualaba. A ways beyond Kisangani and Bumba, the main branch, fed by hundreds of tributaries, lurches almost due west, making a gentle west-north-west arch until, past the rapids just after Kinshasa, it tumbles dramatically to the ocean past Goma.

 

 

Nurses at Dallas hospital describe poor safety measures with Ebola victim

Nurses at a Texas hospital where a Liberian man died of Ebola described a confused and chaotic response to his arrival in the emergency room, alleging in a statement Tuesday that he languished for hours in a room with other patients and that hospital authorities resisted isolating him.

In addition, they said, the nurses tending him had flimsy protective gear and no proper training from hospital administrators in handling such a patient.

The allegations, made under unusual circumstances, provided the first detailed portrait of Thomas Eric Duncan’s second trip to the emergency room, where he arrived by ambulance days after doctors had sent him home with a fever, a headache, abdominal pain and a prescription for antibiotics.

Two Republicans Call on CDC Chief to Resign Amid Ebola Spread

Two Republican U.S. lawmakers called for Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Thomas R. Frieden’s resignation, saying he mishandled the cases of two health-care workers in Texas who contracted Ebola.

Representative Pete Sessions of Texas, a member of the House Republican leadership, told conservative talk show host Laura Ingraham that Frieden had failed to prevent the spread of the virus to two health workers who cared for a man who died of the disease in Dallas. Representative Tom Marino of Pennsylvania also called for Frieden to quit, saying that the “Ebola situation is beginning to spiral beyond control.”

Sessions, whose district is home to the hospital where the Ebola patients were treated, and Marino commented after the agency said today that the second Texas health worker who tested positive for Ebola flew from Dallas to Cleveland and back before reporting she had symptoms.

The same blood transfusion procedure was repeated for seven others who were ill, the final group of Ebola-stricken patients in the hospital.

The results were staggering: seven of the eight survived.

Airborne spread of Ebola “strongly suspected” by Canadian health care workers

In the statement, Dr. Isra Levy, Ottawa’s medical officer of health, emphasized that “Ebola virus disease spreads only through direct contact with infected bodily fluids.” But the head of the Ontario Nurses Association said there is no consensus on whether or not Ebola can spread through the air. Linda Haslam-Stroud argued that someone could inhale tiny airborne particles if exposed to them long enough in an enclosed space.

“Aerosol transmission has not been ruled out and this is the fundamental disagreement that we’re having right now with the government and we’re working with the government to try to resolve,” she said. “Ebola has a lot of unknowns to it.”

Virus-transmitting ‘yellow fever’ mosquitoes discovered in L.A. County

A new aggressive daytime-biting mosquito capable of transmitting debilitating and possibly deadly viruses has been found in the Los Angeles region, officials announced Wednesday.

Known as yellow fever mosquitoes, the insects were found Oct. 7 and 8 in Commerce and Pico Rivera, respectively, according to the Greater Los Angeles County Vector Control District.

One of the usual duties of local government is politely termed “vector control” which means taking active steps to reduce the population of insects and animals known to carry diseases; aka the “vectors.” This is a function of government that usually operates below the notice of the taxpayers and for that very reason is the first to feel the austerity budget axe. That certainly happened here in Hawaii and likely California and other states, and now the populations of disease-carrying insects and animals are on the rise!

 

 

Drivers ‘ripped off’ at pumps as oil costs fall: Claims four pence a litre drop is yet to be passed on to drivers

Motorists are paying ‘rip-off’ fuel prices at the pumps because falling petrol prices are failing to keep pace with plummeting oil costs, motoring groups warned last night.

Although forecourt prices are falling – driven largely by supermarkets cutting their pump prices – it is claimed up to 4p per litre on average has yet to be passed on to drivers following a 2p drop since September.

And drivers in rural areas are being hit harder because there are fewer supermarket competitors to kick-start a price cut.

As a result motorists face a post-code lottery over the extent to which they benefit from crude oil prices tumbling on international markets.

According to Trend Micro, they have been monitoring the activity on YouTube over the past couple of months and have found that the attack comes in the form of ads that are present on the site. While the ads themselves have no malicious content, the issue seems to occur when the ad is clicked. Although these ads should be monitored and screened by YouTube, some have seemed to slip through the cracks, redirecting to malicious websites that could cause infections. While this all sounds fairly simple, the actually process for passing off a malicious site for something legitimate is fairly complex.

Its roots are found in Judaism and in the middle of the nineteenth century Moses Hess, Karl Marx’s mentor in socialism, developed it into a political movement.

Atheist sent to jail for refusing to believe in higher power during drug rehab awarded $2 million.

An atheist in Northern California has been awarded nearly $2 million in a settlement with the state and a nonprofit drug rehab organization for violating his religious liberty by sending him to jail for refusing to submit to a “higher power” as part of a treatment program, local news outlets reported.

Thanks To Obama’s Incompetence, Ebola Is Now Out Of Control In America

Much of the responsibility for the Ebola crisis that the United States is now facing can be laid squarely at the feet of Barack Obama. If Obama had banned all non-essential air travel between the U.S. and West Africa, Thomas Eric Duncan would have never gotten on to a plane to this country in the first place.

 

 

Four Sections of the San Andreas Fault are ‘Locked’ and Building Up Pressure

A new report from the Bulletin of the Seismological Society of America (BSSA) has highlighted four sections of the San Andreas fault that are locked in place and building up pressure.

Fault creep describes the slight slips, and the release of small amounts of pressure that build up on fault lines. Without the creep that most faults exhibit, the pressure builds and builds until there is a major earthquake when the ‘stuck’ rocks suddenly move and the pressure is released.

‘Violent’ stock market crash could be round the corner as hidden liquidity crunch ‘blows up’ in investors’ faces, warns think-tank

A potentially ‘violent’ stock market crash could be on the horizon as financial markets become dangerously stretched, a think-tank has warned.

The Bank of International Settlements said that suspiciously low levels of volatility in the markets seen this year suggest a lack of liquidity that could trip up investors who assume they can dispense of assets when a sell-off begins.

 

 

Top U.S. Military Leaders are Worried About Ebola

The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff – the American top military leader – told CNN today:

“If you bring two doctors who happen to have that specialty [i.e. doctors who are experts in Ebola] into a room, one will say, ‘No there is no way it will ever become airborne, but it could mutate so it could be harder to discover,’ ” and another might say something completely different, Dempsey said.

He said he is alarmed by the World Health Organization’s warning that Ebola cases could increase and the virus could mutate.

“Then it will be an extraordinarily serious problem,” he said. “I don’t know who is right. I don’t want to take that chance, so I am taking it very seriously.”

Plane that carried Ebola patient also flew to S. Fla.

Wednesday morning, officials confirmed a nurse who cared for Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan travelled on Frontier Airlines Flight 1143 from Cleveland to Dallas/Fort Worth on October 13 before feeling symptoms of the virus.

The same plane used on Flight 1143 was used on an October 14 flight from Cleveland to Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. The plane with tail number N22OFR later returned to Cleveland that afternoon before heading on a route from Cleveland to Atlanta and then back.

Frontier removed the plane from service early Wednesday following the CDC warning and according to reports, the airline said the plane was immediately decontaminated.

 

 

Sir Alan Duncan’s ‘apartheid’ attack on Israel angers Jewish groups

Fracking firm lodging appeal after council rejects its planning application

Advert featuring woman’s breasts causes 500 accidents in a DAY among Moscow’s distracted male drivers – before being impounded by police

An advertising campaign showing a woman’s breasts has been blamed for more than 500 traffic accidents in one day.

The massive adverts placed on the side of 30 trucks driving around Moscow showed a woman’s breasts cupped in her hands with the slogan ‘They Attract’ across her nipples.

As the trucks trundled around the streets of the Russian capital, they left a trail of carnage as male drivers became so distracted they ploughed straight into each other.

A total of 517 accidents were reported.

The Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), the nation’s leading mental health watchdog, has launched an in-depth investigation into Michigan’s mental health policies to get to the bottom of the state’s seemingly endless prosecution of Godboldo.

Vice-President of the States puts all the blame on America’s allies, saying it were they who funded jihadists. Terrorists threaten direct attacks on American soil. Is the U.S. ready to respond with more than just airstrikes? Was it really unaware of the growing threat? And were that the allies that gave a helping hand to the radicalism in Iraq and Syria? To find answers to these questions, we speak to FBI whistleblower; Sibel Edmonds is on Sophie&Co today.

‘Frustrated Parent’ Jeff Severt With Engineering Degree Lashes Out Against Common Core

“I have a bachelor of science degree in electronics engineering which included extensive study in differential equations and other higher math applications,” he wrote. “Even I cannot explain the Common Core mathematics approach, nor get the answer correct.

“In the real world, simplification is valued over complication,” he added, signing the letter as a “frustrated parent.”

Some parents and teachers are divided on the initiative, with one commenter writing on KSDK’s Facebook page: “I can’t help my third and fifth graders with their homework because they have to follow ten extra steps to come up with an answer that I was taught how to do in two steps.”

The goal of Common Core is to trick children into thinking they are educated but without allowing them to develop skills of critical thought and analysis which would enable them to more easily see through the obvious lies and indoctrination of the government.

 

 

The Cycle of Poverty Spins Faster

Things have changed. For the worse. A single person earning a low wage cannot support him or herself, let alone a couple of kids.

If a family earns $40,000 a year because both parents are working at minimum wage in one or more jobs each and their teen has a paper route, that does not accurately reflect the state of the American worker.

As I write this, Walmart has announced that it will no longer provide health insurance to employees who work fewer than thirty hours, joining Target, Home Depot, Walgreens and Trader Joe’s in cutting hours and offering more part-time work in order to avoid the January 15 mandate.

 

 

Will the Real Ebola Vaccine Stand Up? Exposing a Major Cover Up

There are lat east two Ebola vaccines. One vaccine has been in development since 2004. The second vaccine, being developed by GSK, is presently in development and will be brought to market by January 2015.
Vaccine #1- GSK

To say that this vaccine is being brought to the public a little too fast would be the same as saying that Mt. St. Helens caused the earth to “shake a little bit”. The GSK vaccine will be completed from start to finish in 5 short months. Normal medical protocols dictated that this process should take from 3-5 to years. This vaccine is reckless and will endanger the public’s health upon its roll-out.
Vaccine #2- Crucell

Plane Used by Ebola-Infected Nurse Was Cleaned and Back in Service Next Day

The plane that transported an Ebola-infected nurse from Cleveland to Dallas was cleaned and put back into service the next day, according to Frontier Airlines.

The plane has flown to at least one other U.S. city after being cleaned in Dallas, according to the airline, which confirmed it was cleaned again in Cleveland on Tuesday.

The second cleaning probably included some serious disinfecting (we hope) but the cleaning crew on Tuesday had no way to know the plane was possibly contaminated with Ebola and probably did little more than vacuum, pick up the trash, and do a surface wipedown. Unless they took special precautions, the cleanup crew is possibly exposed to an even greater degree that passengers just sitting in their seats were.

 

 

Ebola screening at Heathrow is blasted as ‘a joke’ on first day as passengers arriving from Africa reveal: ‘We could have walked straight through’

Britain’s Ebola screening plans descended into chaos on its first day today after people flying to the UK from high risk countries revealed the checks are not compulsory.

Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt said airline passengers from West Africa must be checked for symptoms ‘to make our country safe’ and warned the epidemic could be as deadly as Aids.

He also warned Britain should expect up to ten cases by Christmas as screening of passengers from Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea, where 4,000 have died from Ebola, started at Heathrow.

But travellers at Terminal One this morning said the system is a ‘complete joke’ because they were either not checked at all, told it was optional or had to seek out medical staff themselves.

What we have are governments wanting to LOOK like they are dealing with the problem, ahead of actually doing anything.

 

 

Obama’s Dumb War

If Barack Obama owes his presidency to one thing, it was the good sense he had back in 2002 to call the Iraq War what it was: “dumb.”

Now, with scarcely a whisper of debate, Obama has become the fourth consecutive U.S. president to bomb Iraq — and in fact has outdone his predecessors by spreading the war to Islamic State targets in Syria as well. With the Pentagon predicting that this latest conflict could rage for three years or longer, Obama is now poised to leave behind a Middle East quagmire that closely resembles the one he was elected to end.

Mr bin Ali Jaber is also asking that the German government acknowledge that allowing the US to use Ramstein to facilitate drone strikes in Yemen – a country with which the US is not at war – is unlawful.

But there’s huge problem in all this: the vaccine won’t be tested against Ebola. It will be “approved” by the FDA in record time without ever being shown to be effective, in other words.

Newest Ebola patient flew Frontier Airlines day before diagnosis

The second healthcare worker who tested positive for Ebola last night flew by air Oct. 13th, the day before she reported symptoms, reported the Center for Disease Control and Prevention in a release.

She flew on Frontier Airlines flight 1143 Cleveland to Dallas/Fort Worth. The CDC is asking all 132 passengers on the flight to call 1 800-CDC INFO (1 800-232-4636). Passengers will be monitored for symptoms and interviewed about the flight.

Plus everyone who touched the ticket counter top or went through the TSA checkpoint after she did.

Frontier Airlines uses Concourse A at the Cleveland airport, which it shares with American Airlines and US Airways. There is also an ATM machine in the concourse shop area, and, of course, the restrooms.

And, given that Dallas is her home, at some point there was a flight FROM Dallas TO Cleveland. If this was a weekend visit, then the first flight was only last Friday night or early Saturday. UPDATE: CONFIRMED she flew from Dallas to Cleveland Oct 10th.

British Parliament sends a message to Obama: the people see Israel as a ‘bully’

Yesterday the British Parliament voted overwhelmingly (274-12) to recognize a Palestinian state, and if you listened to the debate, one theme above all else explains the crushing victory: The British public has been horrified by Gaza and its opinion of Israel has shifted. Even Conservative members of Parliament cited pressure from the public. As Labour’s Andy Slaughter said, Britain has witnessed a new “barbarism”:

I think that the British people have been on the same sort of the journey as the right hon. Member for Croydon South [Conservative Sir Richard Ottaway] described—it is certainly true of the Labour movement—from being very sympathetic to Israel as a country that was trying to achieve democracy and was embattled, to seeing it now as a bully and a regional superpower. That is not something I say with any pleasure, but since the triumph of military Zionism and the Likud-run Governments we have seen a new barbarism in that country.

Why aren’t powerful medicines like colloidal silver or Echinacea being tested against Ebola?

There is nothing in place or in the plans of the “international community” that will prevent the excruciating death of tens of thousands before the year is out; the short term outcome is already written in the ghastly patterns of contagion.

 

 

Corn can be bred to be rich in vitamin A naturally, without the use of questionable GMO technology

Researchers at Purdue successfully identified a set of genes responsible for naturally boosting the provitamin A content of corn kernels, a discovery that could serve emergent nations suffering from vitamin A deficiencies and macular degeneration in the elderly.

Researchers found a way to naturally select the gene variations responsible for producing corn with more vitamin A

A professor of agronomy and the Patterson Endowed Chair of Translational Genomics for Crop Improvement Torbet Rocheford and his colleagues discovered that if the gene variation is selected, it improves the nutritional content of white corn, transforming it into a “biofortified orange corn,” a version far healthier with enriched vitamin A content.

“The hard truth is that the use of mass surveillance technology effectively does away with the right to privacy of communications on the Internet altogether,” the report concluded.

The High Cost of Living in a Police State: US Officers Shielded from Justice

snip: That’s just a small sampling of the most egregious payouts, but just about every community—large and small—feels the pinch when it comes to compensating victims who have been subjected to deadly or excessive force by police. The ones who rarely ever feel the pinch are the officers accused or convicted of wrongdoing, “even if they are disciplined or terminated by their department, criminally prosecuted, or even imprisoned.”

Indeed, a study published in the NYU Law Review reveals that 99.8% of the monies paid in settlements and judgments in police misconduct cases never come out of the officers’ own pockets, even when state laws require them to be held liable. Moreover, these officers rarely ever have to pay for their own legal defense. As law professor Joanna C. Schwartz notes, police officers are more likely to be struck by lightning than be made financially liable for their actions.

On Monday Iraqi military sources confirmed the fall of the military base of Hit, which includes a training camp and the base of the seventh division of the Iraqi army, after a major attack of the organization ISIS, using suicide car bombs and rocket-propelled grenades.

The military sources said that “the organization ISIS attacked the army base in Hit, the third largest military bases in western Iraq, from several axes, and carried out a series of suicide attacks on the walls of the base by car bombs, as well as a missile attack lasted about an hour which led to the storming of the base after the withdrawal of the army from it. “

These fears are really just a smokescreen for those who hate African-Americans, Mexican-Americans, Muslims and other immigrant groups along with hating the LGBT. They have no basis in reality, and the accusation really proves how desperate racists are to find ANY and EVERY excuse possible for limiting immigration. What are these white hate mongers so afraid of?

City of Houston demands pastors turn over sermons

The city of Houston has issued subpoenas demanding a group of pastors turn over any sermons dealing with homosexuality, gender identity or Annise Parker, the city’s first openly lesbian mayor. And those ministers who fail to comply could be held in contempt of court.

“The city’s subpoena of sermons and other pastoral communications is both needless and unprecedented,” Alliance Defending Freedom attorney Christina Holcomb said in a statement. “The city council and its attorneys are engaging in an inquisition designed to stifle any critique of its actions.”

ADF, a nationally-known law firm specializing in religious liberty cases, is representing five Houston pastors. They filed a motion in Harris County court to stop the subpoenas arguing they are “overbroad, unduly burdensome, harassing, and vexatious.”

“Political and social commentary is not a crime,” Holcomb said. “It is protected by the First Amendment.”

But it is a violation of the rules governing 501(c)3 tax-exempt organizations.

A nursing supervisor faced resistance from hospital authorities when the supervisor demanded that Duncan be moved to an isolation unit, the nurses said, according to the union.

Pentagon withheld information about decades-old chemical weapons during Iraq War, report claims

American troops were exposed to chemical weapons multiple times in the years following the 2003 invasion of Iraq, while the Pentagon kept their discoveries of the expired or degraded weapons secret from investigators, fellow soldiers, and military doctors, according to a published report.

The New York Times reported late Tuesday that American troops reported finding approximately 5,000 chemical warheads, shells, or aviation bombs in the years following the 2003 invasion of Iraq. On at least six occasions, soldiers were wounded by those weapons, which had been manufactured before 1991. In all, the paper reported that 17 U.S. soldiers and seven Iraqi police officers were exposed to chemical agents during the war. The U.S. government said its number was slightly higher, but did not release a specific figure.

MADISON, Wis. — The Milwaukee County prosecutor-pushed predawn, paramilitary-style raids on the homes of conservative activists last year was perhaps the logical result of a department that has expanded its armed investigative force, a Wisconsin Reporter investigation shows.

It’s all part of Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm’s drive to start his own police force and expand his power, according to Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr.

“The role of the prosecutor’s office is to prosecute, not to investigate a crime,” said Clarke, adding that Chisholm’s move to expand his gun-carrying investigative team is “mission creep.”

Shock W.H.O. report: Ebola has 42-day incubation period, not 21 days!

If this interpretation of the WHO’s statistics are correct, it would mean that:

  • 1 in 20 Ebola infections may result in incubations lasting significantly longer than 21 days
  • The 21-day quarantine currently being enforced by the CDC is entirely insufficient to halt an outbreak

 

 

FLASHBACK 2009 – Acute viral infections

Often an acute infection may cause little or no clinical symptoms – the so-called inapparent infection. A well-known example is poliovirus infection: over 90% are without symptoms. During an inapparent infection, sufficient virus replication occurs in the host to induce antiviral antibodies, but not enough to cause disease. Such infections are important for the spread of infection, because they are not easily detected. During the height of the polio epidemic in the US, the quarantine of paralyzed patients had no effect on the spread of the disease, because 99% of the infected individuals had no symptoms and were leading normal lives and spreading infection.

The CDC is still pushing the claim that only people showing actual Ebola symptoms can infect others. This article suggests otherwise. Cases of people infected with Ebola but never showing any symptoms have been documented. CDC/DC still don’t have a handle on this.

Confirmatory testing will be carried out by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta. “Health officials have interviewed the latest patient to quickly identify any contacts or potential exposures, and those people will be monitored,” the Texas Department of State Health Services said. “The type of monitoring depends on the nature of their interactions and the potential they were exposed to the virus.” It is the third case diagnosed in the U.S.

UK’s wind farm ‘folly': Electric bills to soar by £1000 thanks to reliance on wind power

HOUSEHOLDERS are facing soaring energy bills and winter power cuts thanks to the “folly” of relying on wind power, experts said last night.

The cost of renewable energy and carbon taxes will put an extra £983 a year on household bills by then, compared to relying on a mix of nuclear and new gas-fired power stations, three experts told a Lords committee.

They also said the “foolhardy” green policy will do little to cut emissions of the greenhouse gases blamed for global warming.

Phony Tony Abbott, the Australian PM, ever mindful of his political survival at home, has promised to shirt front Russian President Putin at the G20 in Brisbane later this year.

This shameful, hysterical and kindergarten behaviour of Abbott is typical of this irrational man’s pugnacity and stupidity over many years. Putin has been forewarned and will come fully prepared if Abbott actually gets the chance to meet the Russian President, and one thing he will have in his armoury is the Abbott policy of locking up kids behind razor wire, something Russia does not do. Abbott will never win this one against Putin. Russia is a major world power, brisling with nuclear warheads, and Australia would struggle to be a middle power. PM Abbott is an absolutes disgrace as the PM of this nation on the international diplomatic stage and , if he does front Putin, he will be brought down a peg or two.

To make matters worse, the inept Labor Opposition leader Bill Shorten has called for Putin to be banned from attending the G20 Summit.

“Pardon Us For Our Country’s Existence in the Middle of Your Military Bases” – Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov’s Speech at the UN

In a courageous and brilliant speech to the United Nations General Assembly on September 27, 2014, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov pierced the veil of obfuscation that characterizes too many speeches at the United Nations, and delivered a scathing denunciation of Western imperialism, imperialism that can only be accurately described as global theft. Lavrov, on behalf of the Russian Federation implicitly warned that US/NATO is risking global war in embarking on its campaign to seize and dominate huge territories, while inexorably and ruthlessly determined to conquer and subjugate Russia, having learned nothing from the historic reality that Napolean’s effort to dominate Russia led to the collapse of Napoleonic France, and Hitler’s attempt to subjugate Russia led to the obliteration of his Third Reich.

Contrary to the shrill cries in the western media that the conference was anti-Semitic, it was unique in my experience in addressing Zionism and US imperialism forthrightly and intelligently, without a hint of racism. The issue of anti-Semitism was addressed and dismissed, as “There is no issue with Jewish people or the Jewish religion,” explained Darya-Bandari, “but rather with Zionism, that secular distortion of Judaism that itself is racist, and has been used as a pretext to dispossess and kill Palestinians.”

Pepe Escobar: What’s the deal between Iran and the US?

I’ve just spent a frantic week in Tehran as a guest of the New Horizon conference of Independent Thinkers. Here is some of what I’ve witnessed.
Three overarching themes monopolize all important discussions in Tehran at this critical historical juncture:

1) the real possibility of a nuclear deal with the P5+1 on November 24;
2) the end of sanctions and the possibility of Iran soon starting to supply the EU with loads of natural gas;
3) the fight against ISIS/ISIL, which Iranians, as much as the Arab street, refer to as Daesh.

I was quite moved by the profound respect shown to Gareth’s investigative work in Tehran, in contrast to the thunderous wall of silence that greeted his book in the US. Call it yet another reflection of the 35-year old “wilderness of mirrors” – or Wall of Mistrust – opposing Washington to Tehran.

On October 7, 2014, Kathy Kelly and Georgia Walker appeared before Judge Matt Whitworth in Jefferson City, MO, federal court on a charge of criminal trespass to a military facility. The charge was based on their participation, at Whiteman Air Force Base, in a June 1st 2014 rally protesting drone warfare. Kelly and Walker attempted to deliver a loaf of bread and a letter to the Base Commander, encouraging the commander to stop cooperating with any further usage of unmanned aerial vehicles, (drones) for surveillance and attacks.

 

 

Exclusive – G20 finalising flexible ‘bail in’ bond deal for big banks: sources

(Reuters) – The world’s biggest banks may be able to count surplus capital towards new buffers of special bonds being imposed by regulators, two sources familiar with draft proposals said.

In order to secure a deal the regulators have agreed to a more flexible approach to cater for differences in banking models across the world, both sources said.

The proposed new rule for the world’s biggest banks is part of a wider plan for making banks safer after governments had to shore up lenders during the 2007-09 financial crisis.

The new buffers, known as “gone concern loss absorption capacity” or GLAC, are being drafted by the Financial Stability Board (FSB), the regulatory task force of the Group of 20 economies, and at meetings this week there was progress on agreeing core elements for the G20 summit in November to endorse said the sources.

Behind all the deliberate obfuscation what they are planning is to allow banks to grab deposits from savings accounts and replace them with special bonds, which will be worthless when the banks collapse anyway.

 

 

Meanwhile In Kiev…

Not satisfied with fighting pro-Russian separatists, Ukrainians are fighting among themselves in Kiev. As RT reports, Kiev police deployed additional forces around the parliament building after a group of demonstrators started throwing smoke bombs and firecrackers at guards in an apparent reprisal over MPs’ failure to honor past nationalists. More than 15 officers have been hurt as far-right protesters clash with riot police at the government buildings on the anniversary of UPA (Ukrainian Insurgent Army). Perhapa more troubling is, if this is the internal tension now, how bad will it get in the winter when they are freezing as Ukraine says it won’t prepay for Russian gas.

Forbidden Liberty: British MP’s Vote ‘Yes’ to Palestine, Israel Now Fears Public Opinion

There was never any ‘roadmap to peace’ as ringleaders in Washington would have you believe. That’s why nothing has happened in 30 years since “peace negotiations” started. Israel made sure it went no where by insisting that Palestinian statehood, or any other form of liberation from occupation or apartheid would come about only as from negotiations with the Israel. Meanwhile, Israel stayed busy building its Berlin walls and increasing its manifest destiny condo communities to gerrymander its own conveniently undeclared borders.

The formula is simple: Israel gets bigger, while Palestine gets smaller. While they’re add it, they might as well demolish some 30,000 Palestinian homes and kill a few thousand women and children. Not too difficult to see when you take off those cheap AIPAC-issued 3-D glasses.

Latest News 15 October 2014

The facts are that in Australia today, no Defence Force member, no Veteran, no ex Service member, no War Widow and none of their kids can rely on the Department of Veterans Affairs to keep their confidential medical documents safe and secure, away from prying public eyes. This is the situation as you read this. The buck stops with DVA Minister Senator Ronaldson. This DVA Minister is so elitist, so arrogant and so irresponsible that he refuses to answer correspondence on the leaks of medical documents and refuses to plug the holes. To allow such a situation to continue while sending more young Australians off to war is political treachery and treason.

The Australian government has plenty of money for war, but says it doesn’t have enough money for fair war Veterans pensions.

 

 

The official estimate of the cost of the new Iraq war to Australian taxpayers is currently $500 million a year, and this will increase as time goes by. PM Abbott is now talking about deploying Australian combat ground Troops to Iraq. This will cost much, much more. Additionally, the government can find an additional $630 mil to upgrade our security organisations at home, which have been keeping the country safe for years on the budget they have as it is without any major increase.

 

Additionally the government intends to give millionaires $50,000 to have a baby and will be spending hundreds of millions extra for the Antarctic station.

 

When it comes to balancing the budget the government is forcing the small end of town to cop the bill and is leaving the big end of town alone.

During Question Time on Wed 1 Oct 2014 in the Australian House of LiaRepresentatives, PM Tony Abbott once again lied in response to a question about why the government plans to reduce war Veterans pensions from 2017. The government plans to change the method of indexation of war Veterans pensions from 2017 onwards which will see the dollar value and purchasing power of Veterans pensions reduce over time, yet Abbott denied this is true last Wednesday, and during his denial he once again distorted the facts and lied as he ran for cover while trying to defend this treachery. On top of this Abbott compared war Veterans pensions to the Family Tax Benefit when he said if it was good enough for the FTB to be indexed to the CPI alone, then it was good for all social security recipients. Abbott consistently likens war Veteran pensions, and the pensions of Defence Force members, war widows, ex service member and their kids to social security pensions. Veterans pensioners under Veteran Law are NOT social security recipients. Veterans are covered under special legislation which recognises their unique service to the Nation, and have been so recognised since 1916.

Are You A Fascist?

You might scoff at the question, “Are you a fascist?” But you should give yourself more credit. Mussolini defines “fascist” quite simply: “Fascism should more properly be called corporatism because it is the merger of state and corporate power.”

So, after all, maybe you are a fascist. Here, let me explain. There are countless examples of fascism in everyday American life.

For instance when you send your kids to government school for their state-approved common core “education” sometimes they will have a list of marginally nutritious foods to choose from, like chicken fingers and french fries and pasteurized milk. Private companies raise these foods, make these foods, and deliver these foods to your child so that they can sit in hard chairs and stare at blackboards invented in the 11th century (and thanks to government still in use today) and learn the US government’s version of history (which is often in direct opposition to factual record).

Revealed: Condoleezza Rice prevented NY Times from publishing CIA scoop

While serving as secretary of state under President George W. Bush, Condoleezza Rice called upon the New York Times and asked the paper to not report on a story, a former editor now says.

Jill Abramson, who served as executive editor of the Times from 2011 through earlier this year, told CBS News’ 60 Minutes television program that she was summoned to an undisclosed location by Rice during the Bush administration and asked to stop Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist James Risen from finishing an article concerning a CIA effort to disrupt Iran’s nuclear capabilities.

Rand Paul: CDC Downplaying Risk From Ebola Virus

OF THE LIARS, BY THE LIARS, AND FOR THE LIARS

Let’s start with some basic concepts. You live in an age of lies. Every day of your life you are literally being drowned in lies. Lies by government. Lies by advertisers. Lies by the corporate media.

Truth has become such a valuable commodity that the government is economizing it!

Liars, meaning good convincing liars (i.e. sociopaths, who evince no guilt when they lie) , lie because they are able to get what they want from people, especially if those people are conditioned from childhood to tell and to believe that others will tell the truth.

It may seem that I am stating the obvious, but the point I want to make is that all ruling power is, is the willingness and ability to do things the ruled may not, or have been conditioned to believe they cannot do.

You are taught not to steal, yet government reserves to itself the right to steal, obfuscating the theft with words like excise, confiscation, pillage, taxation, and in the extreme, conquest.

Tory MP Brooks Newmark sent explicit texts to single mother telling her ‘I am desperate for sex with you’ during alleged two year affair

Tory MP Brooks Newmark bombarded a single mother with up to 40 naked pictures and told her ‘I am desperate for sex with you’ during a two year affair, it was claimed today.

The former minister, 56, a father of five, yesterday issued a grovelling apology after being caught texting explicit photographs of himself for a second time.

Mr Newmark left his post as minister for civil society last month after he was exposed as having exchanged lewd photographs with a male journalist posing as a glamorous 20-year-old Tory PR woman.

Today it emerged that he ‘seduced’ an unnamed mother on Facebook behind his wife’s back, sending her up to forty naked selfies in the past year, his lover said.

Why Can’t We Have More ‘Magic’ Blood for Ebola?

Dr. Kent Brantly has now donated about a gallon of his own blood to other Ebola patients: medical missionary Dr. Rick Sacra and NBC freelance camera operator Ashoka Mukpo, and most recently Dallas nurse Nina Pham.

Patients who have recovered from Ebola have blood chock full of antibodies to the virus. Doctors hope that it can help kick-start the immune systems of patients fighting a new infection.

So why not give blood to everyone?

It’s sheer luck that Brantly has been a match for all three. Another Ebola survivor, missionary Nancy Writebol, offered blood to Thomas Eric Duncan, but it wasn’t a match. Duncan died last week.

But apparently DeKalb County did not have faith in the CDC precautions because Dr. Ribner said that officials threatened to cut the sewer lines if the hospital tried to dispose of any Ebola-tainted waste.

U.S. to allow some Central Americans to seek refugee status from home

In an effort to discourage thousands of unaccompanied children from trying to enter the U.S. illegally, President Obama has instructed immigration officials to allow citizens of Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador to apply for refugee status in their home countries for the first time.

The order, contained in a White House memo to the State Department, did not say how many refugee applications should be approved. But the program is unlikely to stem the flood of unaccompanied minors that began pouring across the Southwest border last spring.

Is our entire legal and political class really that clueless? If the belongings have been fully incinerated, there is no risk of infection. That is the whole point of incineration, after all. This pile of ashes is harmless.

Ban Ki-moon: Gaza is a source of shame to the international community

The UN secretary general, Ban Ki-moon, described the destruction in Gaza from the recent conflict with Israel as “beyond description” and a source of “shame to the international community” as he visited the war-devastated coastal strip on Tuesday.

Urging a speedy reconstruction effort, he announced that Israel was permitting the first truckloads of construction materials to enter the coastal strip, which has been blockaded by Israel and Egypt since before the conflict.

“I am here with a heavy heart,” Ban told a press conference. “The destruction which I have seen coming here is beyond description,” he added.

Ban said the damage was far worse than what he had seen after the previous conflict – Operation Cast Lead – that took place in 2008-09.

Honor student who brought pocketknife to school suspended for the year

The Dearborn Heights District 7 Board of Education chose a less severe punishment for the honor student who was initially expelled after a pocketknife was found in her purse at a football game.

On Monday, after two hours of deliberation, the board voted 6-0 to allow Atiya Haynes to take online classes. She then will be able to graduate with her class in 2015.

The decision still came as a blow to college-bound Haynes, who participated in numerous extracurricular activities including sports.

School officials discovered the knife as she was exiting a bathroom at the game when they searched her purse.

Haynes says the pocketknife was a gift from her grandfather who gave it to her for protection because her summer job required her to ride her bike from southwest Detroit to Dearborn.

So the “educators” are going to wreck this kid’s life over a self-defense weapon? Was she a hardened criminal with a record of violent behavior? On what grounds did they presume to search her purse?

I would like to remind everyone that the Second Amendment reads “The right to keep and bear arms.” It does NOT say “The right to keep and bear firearms.” The Second Amendment reserves the right to the American people to keep and bear not only guns, but knives, swords, spears, or anything else. The United States Supreme Court ruled in United States versus Miller that the Second Amendment specifically refers to arms as carried by the uniformed military, and the uniformed military do carry knives!

“The attack resulted in the killing of one person and the wounding of another and it turned out they were of American citizenship,” it said.

NBC’s medical correspondent ‘violated Ebola quarantine’

An NBC News crew was ordered under mandatory quarantine for possible Ebola infection after the network’s chief medical correspondent was allegedly spotted on a food run to a New Jersey restaurant, according to a report.

Dr. Nancy Snyderman and her crew had agreed to a voluntary quarantine when they returned to the United States from West Africa last week following their exposure to a cameraman who contracted the deadly virus.

But Snyderman, who lives in Princeton, NJ, was spotted outside the Peasant Grill in nearby Hopewell on Thursday afternoon, according to Planet Princeton. Snyderman, who was wearing sunglasses and had her long hair pulled back, waited while a man went inside the eatery to pick up a takeout order, Planet reported.

Another man was sitting in the back seat, according to the local news blog.

Yes, people with Ebola are contagious before they are symptomatic and survivors can be contagious for weeks after their symptoms vanish.

Supreme court backs California’s foie gras ban

In a victory for animal rights activists, the US supreme court on Tuesday allowed California to continue to ban foie gras, a delicacy produced from the enlarged livers of ducks and geese that have been force-fed corn.

Rejecting a legal challenge to the law, the court declined to hear an appeal filed by restaurants and producers of foie gras. In doing so, the high court left intact an August 2013 ruling by the ninth US circuit court of appeals upholding the law.

California enacted the law in 2004 but it did not go into effect until 2012.

Foie gras means “fatty liver” in French. The product is produced by force-feeding corn to ducks and geese to enlarge their livers, which are harvested to make gourmet dishes. Animal rights groups contend that the force-feeding process is painful, gruesome and inhumane.

Meanwhile, four years ago, the administration of President Barack Obama moved with virtually no fanfare to abandon a comprehensive set of regulations which the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) had called essential to preventing international travelers from spreading deadly diseases inside the United States.

Ebola Nurse’s Dog Being Watched at Undisclosed Location

Dallas nurse Nina Pham’s dog Bentley has been taken into custody by an animal shelter as she is being treated for Ebola, officials said.

The King Charles Spaniel was first kept in Pham’s apartment while Dallas County officials assessed the situation this weekend, but it has been cause for concern since a Spanish nurse who contracted the disease had her pet euthanized out of fears that it could be a carrier of the deadly virus.

It does not appear that any similar action will be taken in Texas, however, as Judge Mike Rawlings said that they will be taking good care of the pet while the 26-year-old nurse is in treatment.

Let me preface this by saying I am a dog lover. However, the animal care facility should be very cautious. According to this paper at the CDC, dogs can carry the Ebola virus and be infectious, yet not show any symptoms they are ill. Dogs are a major vector for the spread of the disease in Africa. Nina’s dog needs to be kept in BSL4 isolation until testing confirms it is not infected, because if the dog is carrying the virus, it could infect not only the people at the animal shelter, but the other dogs as well.

UPDATE: I posted the above comment including tinyURL links to the relevant articles in the comments section of the ABC article.

ABC just deleted it.

UPDATE 2: The Mayor of Dallas just announced that the dog is in isolation and being cared for my workers in protective gear. I am glad they are finally starting to take this problem seriously!

Another Foreign News Outlet Links U.S. Bio-Warfare Labs to Ebola Outbreak

(Truthstream Media)

Russian news outlet Ria Novosti recently featured an interview with Professor Francis Boyle, University of Illinois College of Law, implicating the United States military-industrial complex in the current Ebola outbreak which the World Health Organization claims has now taken over 4,000 lives in West Africa.

Via Ria Novosti:

“US government agencies have a long history of carrying out allegedly defensive biological warfare research at labs in Liberia and Sierra Leone. This includes the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which is now the point agency for managing the Ebola spill-over into the US,” Prof. Francis Boyle said.

 

 

Breast Cancer Scam Artistes and Honky Tonk Sweathogs.

How craven, venal and ridiculous is the Breast Cancer Awareness Money machine? This says it all. It is truly amazing, the extent to which people can reveal themselves to be shameless opportunists. All they see is the money; honor, integrity and sundry other qualities lie bleeding and gasping for breath in their wake. Here is yet one more chance for me to be grateful. I am not like this. I could not be like this and remain myself. Such naked greed suggests those demonstrating it might be capable of anything; recent history has shown this to be true… unfortunately.

 

 

ISIS proves flexible as its tactics evolve in fight against the West

This summer, Islamic State fighters swept into the expanse of desert straddling the Iraq-Syria border. Riding in pickup trucks mounted with heavy machine guns, supported by skilled snipers and at least one tank, the Islamists captured the town of Rabia on the Syrian side of the border.

Kurdish militia fighters from the People’s Protection Units — known by its Kurdish acronym YGP — rushed to the neighboring town of Al Yarubiyah, on the Iraqi side, in a desperate effort to contain the militants’ advance. What followed was a two-month stalemate, as both sides harassed each other with machine guns, mortars and snipers.

Then in late September, U.S.-led airstrikes hit Islamic State forces in Rabia. The Kurdish YPG troops timed their counterattack perfectly. Reeling from the combined aerial and ground assault, the militants fell back. The Kurds liberated Rabia.

 

 

BP Agent: ‘FEMA is preparing for 200 million deaths’

Taylor also spoke a great deal about the threat being posed to Americans by communicable diseases being brought into this country by illegal aliens.

“We don’t know when CDC (Centers for Disease Control) takes custody of one of these people from Homeland Security and whisks them off somewhere–we don’t know where–what disease they have been diagnosed with, Taylor said. “We know it’s communicable…We assume it’s serious.”

But, it was what the retired agent said next that will send a chill down your spine…

Taylor said:

They’re anticipating a large national crisis. When you see that FEMA is preparing for two hundred million deaths in the United States, that tells you something. When you see that the government is controlling the supply of ammunition and that basic medical supplies are in short supply in southern Arizona, something’s wrong…They are anticipating something drastic.

Saudis Dump Oil To Increase Leverage Over U.S. Middle East Policies

During the last years U.S. president Obama talked a lot about energy independence:

In his fifth State of the Union address on Tuesday, President Barack Obama celebrated the efforts his administration has made to cut greenhouse gas emissions, while also praising recent increases in domestic oil and gas production.

Obama said early in his address that there is now more “oil produced at home than we buy from the rest of the world,” for the first time in two decades.

Obama did not say that the increase in U.S. fossil fuel production was only possible because international oil and gas prices had increased above the magic $100 per barrel equivalent. Below that price shale gas and oil extraction as well as oil production from tar sands are only marginally profitable or not profitable at all.

 

 

Company Stops Ebola, While Obama and the UN Fail

As the Obama administration and the United Nations send military troops and massive amounts of resources in a thus far totally ineffective bid to supposedly combat the deadly Ebola virus, one private company has already “stopped Ebola in its tracks” with exactly zero soldiers, according to National Public Radio. Indeed, using standard medical techniques to control the disease that it found through Google searches, Firestone Natural Rubber Company, which operates a giant rubber-tree farm in Ebola-stricken Liberia, has become what the Wall Street Journal described as a “sanctuary of health in a country where cases are doubling every three weeks.”

Colloidal Silver Benefits: The Truth About Colloidal Silver

Have you heard of a ‘miracle’ product known as colloidal silver? The basic reason for any colloidal silver efficacy and safety controversy is that the medical establishment (medical mafia) and the pharmaceutical industry (Big Pharma) see colloidal silver as a financial threat. While you may have been cautioned against using colloidal silver, know that colloidal silver benefits are tried and true.

Both the medical establishment and Big Pharma have put silver medical products to work in hospital equipment and medical tools as well as anti-infection burn remedies to prevent MRSA (Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus) infections, which are potentially lethal and have become antibiotic resistant.

Yet the medical establishment promotes fear mongering lies through various media outlets and threatens colloidal silver manufacturers through various federal, state, and local health agencies.

 

 

Unlike their political heroes in Britain, who held a Parliamentary debate and vote on Palestinian State recognition, the Australian government decided unilaterally to not recognise a Palestinian State.

Australia has no Bill of Rights, has more draconian Laws on the books which restrict civil freedom based on the over blown terror threat than most world countries, and is effectively a dictatorship politically because of the enormous and wide ranging power the Prime Minister and Cabinet hold over the lives of ordinary citizens.

Of course as Australians suck up the propaganda which is thrust down our collective throats from cradle to grave, then the myth of the Great South Land democracy holds sway in the minds and hearts of most Australians. This myth is an utter fraud. We are over governed and over controlled.

We now have in place a government which promised less government and less control but which is doing the opposite. Australia is no democratic shining beacon to the world. Face the truth…………….KT

Mystery surrounds letters praising Holocaust denial video

A Holocaust denial video that suggested Jews were not exterminated by gas chambers at the Nazi Auschwitz concentration camp mysteriously received flattering praise in letters from the offices of one U.S. representative, a Maine state representative and a high-ranking policy adviser to the president of Hungary who now works for NATO.

A fourth letter from a U.S. representative acknowledged receiving the video, but only described it as “informative,” and returned the video to the sender.

The Washington Times reached three of the four individuals whose offices sent out the flattering responses, and, in all three cases, officials denied having actually watched the video and offered apologies.

Well, that’s politicians for you. But despite the obvious bias of “How could you praise that documentary” in the Washington Times, the video is very good, worth watching, and presents a strong case that the real events of Nazi Germany were greatly exaggerated to create political support for the creation of the state of Israel.

The journal Nature reports conventional breeding techniques out perform Genetic Engineering for important traits

Last month, the highly respected science journal Nature published a news article reporting that conventional breeding substantially out-performs genetic engineering for several very important traits —drought tolerance and the ability of crops to use nitrogen (e.g., from fertilizer or manure) more efficiently.

It’s unusual to see the two methods compared. Science journals have presented advances in breeding for drought tolerance. But none have been bold enough to say what has been obvious for several years — that conventional breeding is working considerably better than genetically engineered seeds for this trait.

 

 

BREAKING: Ebola Nurse Boyfriend Reportedly Symptomatic, Hospitalized

An email sent out to the Alcon staff by its CEO reportedly said that the ebola nurse’s boyfriend was admitted into hospital with “Ebola-like symptoms.”

Alcon’s U.S. headquarters are in Fort Worth, Texas. It is an opthomological pharmaceutical company.

UPDATE: The actual email sent out by Alcon management does not state that the boyfriend is symptomatic, but he has been hospitalized as a precaution.

He added that settlers also graffitied racist slogans on the wall on the mosque calling for the death of the Arabs and for them to be killed.

(NaturalNews) Everything that the alternative media has been warning about concerning the Ebola epidemic is now coming true, including that this latest disease scare would eventually be used by the U.S. government to push more drugs and vaccines on the gullible public.

The director of the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), a division of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), recently spilled the beans to members of the Canadian press about a major component of the government’s agenda with this crisis: to vaccinate everyone.

Palestinian Christians denounce priest for claiming Israel grants them freedom

Nadaf claimed Israel was the only country in the Middle East where Christians are “not persecuted” during a speech to the United Nations Human Rights Council on 23 September.

“I couldn’t believe it,” said Salameh, a 25-year-old pharmacist from the village of Turan, home to both Christians and Muslims, located in the Galilee region of present-day Israel.

“He represents no one but himself. The army he wants us to join is the same one shedding the blood of our innocent brothers and sisters — Palestinian blood just like ours,” she told The Electronic Intifada.

Over the past months the list has apparently been used to target websites critical of U.S.’ involvement in the wars in the Middle East, U.S.’ involvement in Ukraine and independent media who are publishing material that is critical of Zionism

Russia’s two largest banks plan SWIFT alternative

The two biggest banks in Russia, Sberbank and VTB, are in talks to create an alternative to the SWIFT global system for interbank financial communications, VTB head Andrey Kostin said.

According to Kostin, Russia has two options: either use the system run by the Russian Central Bank or create a new homegrown transaction platform.

“There is an alternative, we can use the Central Bank system that is already in operation, and we may make our own, we are already in discussions with Sberbank,” Kostin told reporters in Washington DC, where he is for the annual fall meetings of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank.

However, the catch with the Central Bank’s international transaction system is the price.

“It’s expensive, in fact several times more expensive than the SWIFT payment system,” the VTB head said.

Major Coal Mine Shelled in Southeastern Ukraine: Energy Company

KIEV, October 14 (RIA Novosti) – A major coal mine has been shelled in southeastern Ukraine for four days in a row, the department of public relations of the DTEK energy company said in a statement Tuesday.

“The [DTEK Komsomolets Donbassa] mine has been shelled for four days already. From tanks, artillery weapons and mortars,” the statement said, adding that miners took shelter in “defensive structures” as “massive shelling” occurred.

Miners cannot resume their work amid constant shelling, DTEK stressed. If the thermal power stations that DTEK supplies, especially the Kryvorizka TPP and the Prydniprovska TPP, are left without coal, the entire Dnipropetrovsk region, and several neighboring regions, could be left without electricity.

Ukrainian National Guard troops are protesting outside the presidential administration office in Kiev as they demand demobilization. They are refusing to return to their barracks outside the capital.

About 200 soldiers have surrounded the building claiming they have served six months longer than their contracts stipulated. Soldiers are chanting, “Demobilization!” and, “All for one and one for all.”
They say they are not going to leave until authorities answer their questions, key amongst them being when they will be able to return home.

Members of the presidential administration, however, have demanded that the soldiers immediately return to their military barracks.

‘Duck and hide!’ – Comet’s near-hit of Mars may crash NASA spacecraft orbiting planet

Comet Siding Spring is expected to travel exceptionally close to Mars at 126,000 mph (202,000 kph) on October 19, according to NASA, which says it will strategically maneuver its craft orbiting the Red Planet away from the comet’s impacts.

Siding Spring will come within 87,000 miles (139,500 km) of Mars, which is “less than half the distance between Earth and our moon and less than one-tenth the distance of any known comet flyby of Earth,” NASA said.

NASA holdings that are orbiting and roving around Mars will collect data on the comet and its effects on the planet’s atmosphere.

Not, of course, for the Kurds of Kobani or the Yazidis or the beheaded victims of this weird caliphate. But isn’t it time we woke up to the fact that internet addiction in politics and war is even more dangerous than hard drugs?

The British vote to recognise Palestine won’t change a complex reality

The British vote in parliament recognising a Palestinian state alongside Israel is seen by many as a landmark moment in British policy on the Palestinian question. The vote comes shortly after Sweden’s newly elected prime minister, Stefan Löfven, expressed his readiness to recognise the state of Palestine. But Sweden’s gesture is the more significant one, since Britain’s Conservative-led government has made it abundantly clear that the parliamentary vote will not change its position on the Israel-Palestine issue.

Britain’s current position is that it would recognise a Palestinian state if it helped the peace process. Would it? Certainly, many on Israel’s left appear to think it will advance the prospect of a two-state solution. Former Israeli diplomats and members of Knesset were among the 363 Israelis who signed a letter encouraging British MPs to vote to recognise Palestine.

 

 

The lingo conceals the lies

And language means the use of words. That is why propaganda is the first weapon of the dictator – the power to bend the real meaning of words in order to bend the listener/reader’s mind.

The two weapons of the propagandist are the misnomer (the wrong word with the wrong meaning) and the euphemism (the wimp that dare not say what it really means.) Way out in the lead for both categories is the BBC. Listen to the news and you’ll see what I mean.

The Beeb will never under any circumstances use the word ‘terrorist’. It says ‘militant’ instead. Len McCluskey of Unite is a trade union militant. But he does not torture prisoners, massacre villages of men, women and children, or crucify opponents. ISIL, Al Qaeda and Al Shebaab do that. They are terrorists. Why not use the right word?

 

 

Richest 1% of people own nearly half of global wealth, says report

The richest 1% of the world’s population are getting wealthier, owning more than 48% of global wealth, according to a report published on Tuesday which warned growing inequality could be a trigger for recession.

According to the Credit Suisse global wealth report (pdf), a person needs just $3,650 – including the value of equity in their home – to be among the wealthiest half of world citizens. However, more than $77,000 is required to be a member of the top 10% of global wealth holders, and $798,000 to belong to the top 1%.

“Taken together, the bottom half of the global population own less than 1% of total wealth. In sharp contrast, the richest decile hold 87% of the world’s wealth, and the top percentile alone account for 48.2% of global assets,” said the annual report, now in its fifth year.

Televangelist Ernest Angley Alegedly Pushed Vasectomies, Abortions Because Raising Kids Cuts Into Donations

As for the claim that Angley encouraged men in the church to have vasectomies, he said that he had “helped so many of the boys down through the years.”

“They had their misgivings,” he recalled. “Sure, I’d have them uncover themselves, but I did not handle them at all.”

“And I would tell them how that would work. And they’d have to watch it. I’d have some of them come back to me that I felt needed to. And I would tell them, I would look at them, their privates — I, so I could tell how they were swelling,” the pastor told the congregation. “I was a farm boy. We thought nothing about undressing. We didn’t know about homosexuals. We talked about women.”

Members of the presidential administration, however, have demanded that the soldiers immediately return to their military barracks.

Latest News 14 October 2014

 The facts are that in Australia today, no Defence Force member, no Veteran, no ex Service member, no War Widow and none of their kids can rely on the Department of Veterans Affairs to keep their confidential medical documents safe and secure, away from prying public eyes. This is the situation as you read this. The buck stops with DVA Minister Senator Ronaldson. This DVA Minister is so elitist, so arrogant and so irresponsible that he refuses to answer correspondence on the leaks of medical documents and refuses to plug the holes. To allow such a situation to continue while sending more young Australians off to war is political treachery and treason.

The Australian government has plenty of money for war, but says it doesn’t have enough money for fair war Veterans pensions.

 

The official estimate of the cost of the new Iraq war to Australian taxpayers is currently $500 million a year, and this will increase as time goes by. PM Abbott is now talking about deploying Australian combat ground Troops to Iraq. This will cost much, much more. Additionally, the government can find an additional $630 mil to upgrade our security organisations at home, which have been keeping the country safe for years on the budget they have as it is without any major increase.

 

Additionally the government intends to give millionaires $50,000 to have a baby and will be spending hundreds of millions extra for the Antarctic station.

 

When it comes to balancing the budget the government is forcing the small end of town to cop the bill and is leaving the big end of town alone.

During Question Time on Wed 1 Oct 2014 in the Australian House of LiaRepresentatives, PM Tony Abbott once again lied in response to a question about why the government plans to reduce war Veterans pensions from 2017. The government plans to change the method of indexation of war Veterans pensions from 2017 onwards which will see the dollar value and purchasing power of Veterans pensions reduce over time, yet Abbott denied this is true last Wednesday, and during his denial he once again distorted the facts and lied as he ran for cover while trying to defend this treachery. On top of this Abbott compared war Veterans pensions to the Family Tax Benefit when he said if it was good enough for the FTB to be indexed to the CPI alone, then it was good for all social security recipients. Abbott consistently likens war Veteran pensions, and the pensions of Defence Force members, war widows, ex service member and their kids to social security pensions. Veterans pensioners under Veteran Law are NOT social security recipients. Veterans are covered under special legislation which recognises their unique service to the Nation, and have been so recognised since 1916.

“Prepare For Runs”, IMF Warns Policymakers Of “Elevated Financial Stability & Liquidity Risks”

The IMF is worried…

Policymakers and markets need to prepare for structural higher market volatility. Doing so requires strengthening the system’s ability to absorb sudden portfolio adjustments, as well as addressing structural liquidity weaknesses and vulnerabilities.

Advanced economies with financial markets at risk for runs and fire sales may need to put in place mechanisms to unwind funds should they come under substantial pressure that threatens wider financial stability.

How ‘Plod’ can spy on YOUR phone…in just three clicks: Officers can access mobile phone and internet firms’ mainframes

At the headquarters of every police force in Britain is a small office called the ‘Telecoms Intelligence Unit’ (TIU).

There, police officers can log in directly to the mainframe computers of three of four big mobile phone companies – Vodafone, Three and EE – as well as BT and internet service providers.

EE comprises the former networks Orange and T-Mobile, whose police interface was called Plod – an acronym for Police Liaison On-screen Database.

Armed with the required usernames and passwords, in a few keystrokes the officers can retrieve confidential data from anyone’s telephone or computer use within minutes.

 

 

UK aid ‘doesn’t boost freedom in poor nations': £12billion budget has ‘no discernible impact’ on developing countries

Fast-rising aid spending has done nothing to help the economic and political freedoms of people in the countries which benefit, a new analysis found yesterday.

It examined the progress of 28 countries which have had a share of the aid financed by British taxpayers and found that the money ‘does not have any discernible impact on freedom in developing countries’.

It found that twice as many countries lost freedoms after receiving British aid than improved the political and human rights conditions for their citizens.

Dr. Richard Besser, the chief health and medical editor for ABC News, told WFAA-Dallas on Sunday that he found the second Texas Ebola case “very concerning.” As reported by Breitbart Texas, the latest patient diagnosed with Ebola is a female nurse at the Texas Presbyterian Hospital who treated Thomas Eric Duncan before he died from the disease. Besser, having recently returned to the United States after visiting Ebola-stricken areas of Liberia, expressed sharp disagreement with the protocols being followed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), dissatisfied with their admission that they needed to adopt enhanced protocols in a press conference Sunday.

Press Conference Abruptly Ends After Inferring Ebola Is Airborne

Texas Health Resources chief clinical officer Dan Varga told a news conference, “We are very concerned about this transmission, as the worker was infected with the virus despite wearing full protective gear while in contact with Duncan.”

Officials immediately rushed to end the news conference after the statement, fueling further speculation that Ebola has gone airborne. Adding more fuel to the fire were videos from an October 8, US Airways flight from Philadelphia to Punta Cana where a team of security personal boarded the plane wearing HAZMAT suits and oxygen tanks.
According to Doctor CJ Peters, ‘Unqualified assurances that Ebola is not spread through the air are “misleading”.’

U.S. prepared for Ebola … 10 patients at a time

Have you wondered why Ebola patients are being sent to Omaha, Nebraska?

It’s because one physician, Dr. Philip Smith, had the foresight to set up the Nebraska Biocontainment Patient Care Unit after the Sept. 11 attacks as a bulwark against bioterrorism. Empty for more than a decade, used only for drills, it was called “Maurer’s Folly,” for Harold Maurer, former chancellor of the University of Nebraska Medical Center.

The unit has a special air handling system to keep germs from escaping from patient rooms, and a steam sterilizer for scrubs and equipment.

It could handle at most 10 patients at a time, but one or two would be more comfortable, owing to the large volume of infectious waste.

It is the largest of only four such units in the U.S., and the only one designated for the general public.

The US Government spent all your money propping up Wall Street, propping up Israel, and buying bombs and bullets to kill Muslims, and is as ill-prepared to deal with Ebola as it was with Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy, and the Gulf Oil disaster~!

Pro-GMO Database: Monsanto is Most Common Funder of GMO Research

My head is turning—at the partisan spin that Biofortified continually employs.

First, Biofortified draws its funding conclusion not on its analysis of all GMO research, but only the 400 studies currently available in the GENERA database.

In the 1990s an interim Palestinian administrative authority was established pending a final settlement of the conflict. Diplomatic recognition would seem the obvious next step.

Ebola and the Five Stages of Collapse

The scenario in which Ebola engulfs the globe is not yet guaranteed, but neither can it be dismissed as some sort of apocalyptic fantasy: the chances of it happening are by no means zero. And if Ebola is not stopped, it has the potential to reduce the human population of the earth from over 7 billion to around 3.5 billion in a relatively short period of time. Note that even a population collapse of this magnitude is still well short of causing human extinction: after all, about half the victims fully recover and become immune to the virus. But supposing that Ebola does run its course, what sort of world will it leave in its wake? More importantly, now is a really good time to start thinking of ways in which people can adapt to the reality of a global Ebola pandemic, to avoid a wide variety of worst-case outcomes.

When Poverty Was the Enemy, Not the Poor

It has been 50 years since America launched the War on Poverty. The Economic Opportunity Act and legislation to outlaw racial discrimination were the centerpieces of President Lyndon B. Johnson’s vision to create a Great Society.

Today, rather than a war on poverty, we seem to have a war on the poor. Wealth inequality is growing. State support for education is withering. Social safety-net programs are under attack in Congress. Many Americans believe that if people are poor, it’s their own fault. The only “solution” for poverty that many people advocate is allowing companies to create jobs offering wages too low to support a family.

 

 

Report: Toronto’s Trump condos could become future slum

TORONTO, Canada (Financial Post) Glass panels have been falling off newly built Toronto condos, including the luxury Shangri-La and Trump towers and a dozen or more lesser-known buildings across the city. New buildings suffer from water leaks and poor insulation, making them ill-suited to Canadian weather.

“The life cycle is clear. They are okay for the first five years, they gradually deteriorate by year 10 … and don’t even reach year 20 before significant remedial work needs to be done. In 50 years these buildings may well become an urban slum.”

“It’s all about timing. We advise most clients to get out before that five-year mark,” said Roy Bhandari of Sage Real Estate, which notched nearly C$50 million in Toronto condo sales in 2013, with clients typically from China, Eastern Europe, or the Middle East. “It’s the magic number because after five years the warranties are expired.”

Yes, CEOs are ludicrously overpaid. And yes, it’s getting worse

A new report produced by the TUC claims that we’re in the middle of the worst pay squeeze since the 1860s, with real wages falling for the seventh year in a row. Not the best time for another report, by Incomes Data Services, to show that FTSE 100 directors have received a bumper 21 per cent pay increase over the past year. While their actual salaries only rose by 2.5 per cent, rising share prices and juicy bonuses saw their median pay packet reach £2,433,000. The typical CEO now rakes in £3,344,000, or 120 times more than the average UK worker.

The chart below, taken from the IDS report, compares the wages of the highest-paid director of each FTSE 100 company (which usually means the chief executive) with the average UK salary. It shows how, since 2000, bosses’ salaries have increased almost six times more quickly than their workers’. (Pay packets at smaller companies, in the FTSE 350, have also risen much faster than ordinary wages, but not quite as spectacularly.)
