“And if after having elected their man or group, obedience is not rendered to the Jewish control, then you speedily hear of ‘scandals’ and ‘investigations’ and ‘impeachments’ for the removal of the disobedient.” — Henry Ford
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”.
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.” 
At about 3:40 into the video the insider also speaks of a DHS bulletin titled “Lone Wolf” which insists that executions and the beheadings of public officials will start taking place in the U.S. and that official need to remove their “insignias” from gear and vehicles
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.

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.
China’s GDP +7.3% in Q3. The slowest since Q1 2009, and barring that crisis-hit period the slowest in 13 years
One thing’s for certain, it is not the fault of the pet owners which can easily be determined from watching. That’s a faulty, repeated narrative that will hopefully exit soon.
President Barack Obama’s new ‘Ebola Czar’ Ron Klain is an enthusiastic advocate of population control who thinks that there are too many people in Africa.

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.

This is a bit of pre-emptive propaganda to explain away any future occurrences where ISIS fighters are caught or killed with US weapons.
The Magic Number Is Revealed: It Costs Central Banks $200 Billion Per Quarter To Avoid A Market Crash
We have all seen it countless times before: visual confirmation that without the Fed’s (and all other central banks’) liquidity pump, the S&P would be about 70% lower than were it is now.
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.

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!
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.
Detroit’s “unprecedented” shutoff of water utilities to city homes condemns residents to “lives without dignity,” violates human rights on a large scale, and disproportionately impacts African-Americans, United Nations investigators declared Monday following a two-day inquiry.
In an interview Monday night on CNN’s “The Lead”, Eric Holder explained that his biggest failure as Attorney General was the inability to pass gun control legislation after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Connecticut.
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.
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’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.

As a Texas state senator, Dan Patrick has conducted himself in a manner consistent with the shock jock he once was. Patrick—who is now the Republican nominee for lieutenant governor—has railed against everything from separation of church and state to Mexican coyotes who supposedly speak Urdu.

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.

‘Drunk’ snow-plough driver blamed for crash that killed Total oil boss claims he is being FRAMED and says he doesn’t drink because he suffers from a heart condition
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.
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.
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?

Procter and Gamble (P&G) reduced the contents of a bottle of Head and Shoulders shampoo by 20-33%. The company, which used to marketing the brand in a 750 ml bottle, halted its marketing of this bottle, and began marketing two different bottles: 500 ml and 600 ml. The new bottles are very similar to the old ones, giving the misleading impression that the price was reduced.

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.
Hospital workers treating Ebola patients should wear double sets of gloves, disposable hoods with full face shields and special masks, according to strengthened guidelines issued Monday night by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The guidelines focus on personal protective equipment, or PPE, giving hospitals and clinics more specific instructions about gloves, gowns and face masks, and how they should be put on and taken off.
The Department of Homeland Security announced Tuesday that all travelers from Ebola outbreak countries in West Africa will be funneled through one of five U.S. airports with enhanced screening.
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.
After emerging months ago in eastern Sierra Leone, Ebola is now hitting the western edges of the country where the capital is located with dozens of people falling sick each day, the government said Tuesday. So many people are dying that removing bodies is reportedly a problem.

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.

Debbie Dunnegan Waters, the Republican recorder of deeds for Jefferson County, Missouri posed a question in a Facebook post last week to the military that why it has not launched a coup against America’s commander-in-chief.

“But I cannot and do not understand why no action is being taken against our domestic enemy,” she wrote.
Some people in our community have wondered exactly whose side Jim Rickards is on. Many have recently argued he is nothing more than a mouthpiece for the globalists. Perhaps we should question anyone who is purporting that an SDR currency could be the solution. That is the solution for the globalist thieves. Meet the new boss, same as the old boss. Mr. Rickards was interviewed by Greg Hunter recently. The below are comments from our friend Jim Willie, whom we believe to be one of the best sources of information that doesn’t work for the parasitic cartel of banking thieves.

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.
Though Wiesel offers himself as a paragon of moral virtue, the truth is somewhat seamier. As detailed in this myth-shattering piece by Alexander Cockburn from the February 2006 print edition of CounterPunch, Wiesel assiduously campaigned for the Nobel Prize and has for decades tried to pass off his short book “Night” as a true account–a “testimony” in his words– of his experiences at Auschwitz, even though key scenes in the book have been exposed as fiction.

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.
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!”

Surveillance Video Apparently Catches Guy Doing Something at the Ballot Box That Left Republican Monitor Stunned
An Arizona county party official said he saw a man stuffing “hundreds” of ballots into the ballot box and later told a local news outlet the entire incident was caught on surveillance video.

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.

Interesting pictures and a scary little tale at the end
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.
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.
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.

On Sunday, Sweden’s Armed Forces released a photograph of an object, suspected to be a foreign submarine in the Stockholm archipelago and a map, allegedly showing where the photo was taken. 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 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.”
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.

With no new Ebola cases in five days, US authorities were cautious but hopeful that the virus has been contained in the United States after a flawed response revealed shortcomings in the system.
Seamus McCaffery, a 64-year-old Belfast-born judge on the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, has been suspended from the bench after sending lewd pornography to fellow judges and friends.
The pictures allegedly included one picture of a woman in congress with a snake and another of a 100-year-old naked woman.
Dr. Nancy J. Sullivan, senior investigator at the National Institutes of Health’s (NIH ) Vaccine Research Center, after years of work, has created a vaccine that’s proven to block Ebola in monkeys and may work in humans.
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.”
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?
Admitting his confidence in Cook County ballot integrity is shaken, State Representative Candidate Jim Moynihan (R-56), was shocked today when he tried to cast a vote for himself and the voting machine cast it for his opponent instead.
It’s clear that the gold-hoarding, ISIS-funding, Ebola-creating international bankers are bent on destroying America. Their current flurry of wars and interventions is a desperate attempt to both stave off a deflationary depression and to shut down the giant spotlight increasingly being shown upon them.
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.
Police in Gothenburg have been about twenty cases involving counterfeit notes in shops and exchange offices in September. Now go out and Gothenburg Police warn of fraud.
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?
All Swedish bank customers will soon be required to prove that they do not owe taxes in the United States according to a new agreement between the countries, and some critics claim it may break EU rules.
The Obama administration has funded a new study by top consulting firm RAND Health that startlingly finds that if taxpayer subsidies are eliminated, Obamacare exchanges will fall into a “death spiral.”
The study comes in the wake of a number of lawsuits which are challenging the Obama administration’s implementation of Obamacare subsidies. 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.

In a letter sent to William Hague, who heads up the Devolution committee set up by the Prime Minister following the Scottish referendum last month, academics, the heads of think-tanks and leading political organisations warn that “it is essential that people are given a say in the shape of our political system”.

The soldier’s identity and age have yet to be released. However, the soldier was one of two Canadian Forces members who was struck by a car in St-Jean-sur-Richelieu in what is being described as a possible terror attack, CTV’s Montreal Bureau Chief Genevieve Beauchemin reported early Tuesday.
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.
This is a pretty far reach to claim a hit-and-run traffic accident is an “act of terror”, even for Israel butt-boy Harper!

When Netanyahu warns about Iran’s nuclear threat, even those who worry about Tehran’s intentions, respond with a weary shrug
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.
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.
Charles Sullivan called up the hotline on a whim, figuring the National Institutes of Health already had filled its queue and wouldn’t need him. But he was accepted for three rounds of shots of a deactivated virus, a year’s worth of blood analysis and a $900 check for his trouble. The clinical trial went well, and the vaccine seemed promising.
A decade later, the country is still waiting for a vaccine amid a worldwide Ebola outbreak, and Mr. Sullivan is wondering what happened to the research conducted on him and 27 other test subjects in 2003.
In Sunday’s report, Savage wrote that Obama, then a US senator, spoke out adamantly against Pres. Bush when it was revealed in 2005 that his administration had been interpreting the UN treaty in a manner that they argued made it acceptable for CIA and Pentagon officials to disregard the prohibitions against torture if they weren’t on American soil.
Obama the president later condemned that reasoning with an executive order “ensuring lawful interrogations,” Savage added, although next month’s meeting may change that.
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.
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)…”
Mandatory national service is not just anti-liberty, it is un-American. Whether or not they admit it, supporters of mandatory national service do not believe that individuals have “inalienable rights.” Instead, they believe that rights are gifts from the government, and, since government is the source of our rights, government can abridge or even take away those rights whenever Congress decides.

IS (the terrorists formerly known as Al-CIAda/Al-Nusra) were extremely close to losing last year in Syria. When the anti-Assad propaganda ploy failed miserably, the US and other terrorist states doubled-down by adding more numbers, more money, more weapons, more lies, etc. Now, the US and NATO provide air cover for this foreign mercenary army and bomb the civilians and infrastructure on Syria without even the sheerest veil of international law or constitutionality. Leave the Middle East alone! Deal with the domestic issues at home caused by your war-mongering!
IS distracts the world’s attention from Israel’s atrocities.
Considering the ha’aretz and other Israeli media articles on how Israel (and the US and other backers) create, train, fund, protect, and treat the injuries of IS members. Why should Israel fear its own catspaw?
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.”

French police on Monday fired tear gas at hundreds of migrants trying to force their way onto trucks in the northern port of Calais in a desperate bid to reach Britain.
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.
In a recent article, “In The Internet of Things YOU Will Be The Key,” I outlined the many ways that the human body will become the next generation identification system.

The applications are pervasive.

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.

The depressive donkey in A.A. Milne’s “Winnie the Pooh” stories pretty much matches the mood of Americans lately, according to the new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll released last week. When 1,000 potential voters were asked whether they think the nation is on the right or wrong track, 65% of them said the country had taken a wrong turn, and only 25% said the U.S. was on the right path.
Three weeks ago the New York Times stunned its readers with a frontpage story proclaiming, “Europe’s Anti-Semitism Comes out of the Shadows.”
From the immigrant enclaves of the Parisian suburbs to the drizzly bureaucratic city of Brussels to the industrial heartland of Germany, Europe’s old demon returned this summer.
A very similar charge was made by Matti Friedman, a former AP reporter in Jerusalem, who accused international media, including American outlets, of anti-Semitism for the way they told the story of the Gaza onslaught, as being Israel’s fault, when the real story was that Israel was taking on Hamas just as the US is taking on ISIS. 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?

“I thought: ‘This is crazy. It must be a mistake,’ ” Mr. Foreman said.
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The government is still focused on imaginary threats they have created with which to control us such as Al Qaeda, ISIS, and human-caused global warming. 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.

UPDATED WITH NEWER NEWS REPORTS AND THE INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO MAKE COLLOIDAL SILVER.
Concerns about even remote chances of Ebola exposure rippled from a U.S. airline to a ship off Belize on Friday, with Frontier Airlines trying to contact hundreds more passengers of a plane linked to an infected nurse, and a cruise liner quarantining a health worker only tangentially linked to the care of a different Dallas Ebola patient.
Why the internet scares corporate media
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.”
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.
Facing renewed criticism of his handling of the Ebola risk, Obama will make Ron Klain, a former chief of staff to Vice President Joe Biden, his point man on fighting Ebola at home and in West Africa.

Klain does not have a medical or a 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.

Family of man sued a small town after he was killed by a police officer. A federal jury awarded them $97.5M. The town’s annual budget is $600,000.
A mix of shock, joy and uncertainty buzzed in this tiny, rural community Thursday as residents contemplated how the town might pay a court judgment so large it could fund the local budget for the next 162 years.

One of the world’s biggest pharmaceutical companies says a vaccine to tackle Ebola will “come too late” to curb the current epidemic, as the UK and other European countries begin screening passengers for the virus at international airports.
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.
Magda Goebbels was born Johanna Maria Magdalena Behrend. Magda’s mother Auguste Behrend divorced Oskar Ritschel and married a Jewish businessman named Richard Friedländer. Magda Goebbels once dated Haim Arlosoroff. He became a prominent ZIONIST. Magda married Joseph Goebbels.
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. Goebbels’ family came from Holland; he was nicknamed “rabbi” in school. “Goebbels had a medal struck: on one side the swastika, on the other the Zionist star.”

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!
Two strippers won’t be hitting up the champagne room for the next 21 days because they’re in Ebola quarantine.
Texas flop jockeys Axl Goode and Taylor Cole say they sat 3-feet from Ebola patient, nurse Amber Vinson during a flight from Cleveland to Dallas on Monday so they called the CDC.
The buffed out strippers were on hold for 81 minutes before they finally got an official on the line. After that, they were placed on a 21 day voluntary quarantine.
What? No pictures of these patients?!?
81 minute wait?

In the past few years as some economic indicators have suggested a recovery is under way, US media have generally responded with celebratory reporting. But according to polls, Americans aren’t so sure. According to a recent NBC poll just 18 percent say the economy is excellent or good. How can we best understand an economy that seems to be serving some but slighting others?
“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.”
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.
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.
The Pentagon is now the latest place to suffer from an Ebola scare.
Arlington News reports that a woman began vomiting while on a tour bus at the Pentagon. Pentagon Force Protection Agency spokesman Chris Layman told Arlington News that Arlington County’s hazmat team was called out when they learned that the woman was recently in Africa.
The hazmat team was called out of “a complete abundance of caution,” Layman told Arlington News.
According to Arlington News, a portion of the Pentagon South parking lot has been cordoned off and that police are telling non-Pentagon employees to avoid the surrounding area.
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.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is expanding its investigation to include passengers on Amber Vinson’s flight from Dallas to Cleveland last Friday. Meanwhile, Summit County officials are looking for shoppers who were at an Akron bridal store she visited.
I am glad Ohio is taking this more seriously that Obama is.
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.
Police officers acknowledge that they are aware of the law and are actively breaking it and make it clear that they don’t care. Why should anyone else?
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.
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.

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.
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.
Over 48 million Americans live in poverty, according to a special report by the Census Bureau Thursday. It provides an alternative look at the worst off people in the nation than the official numbers that come out in September.

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!

Klain is highly regarded at the White House as a good manager with excellent relationships both in the administration and on Capitol Hill. His supervision of the allocation of funds in the stimulus act — at the time and incredible and complicated government undertaking — is respected in Washington.

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.
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.
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.
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.
Well, the kiddies have now seen the man behind the curtain at the Great Father Puppet Show. The CDC, at the poker table gambling with human lives, have just showed their hand and guess what? They’ve been bluffing all along. They don’t hold so much as a pair of deuces. Are you surprised? I bet we both aren’t. 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.

“This Works! People are getting better.”
Hon. Alpha Kanu, Minister of Information, Republic of Sierra Leone
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.
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.
Health officials battling the Ebola outbreak that has killed more than 4,500 people in West Africa have managed to limit its spread on the continent to five countries – and two of them appear to have snuffed out the disease.
The developments constitute a modest success in an otherwise bleak situation.
Google outspends Goldman Sachs on political donations for the first time as tech giant bids for more power in Washington
The technology giant’s political spending wing, NetPAC, spent $1.43 million attempting to guide policymakers’ hands in Washington – $30,000 more than that shelled out by Goldman in the same period.
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.
A statement from the National Security Ministry says the ban extends to persons ordinarily resident in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone as well as persons who have travelled to or transited through the countries in the past 28 days.
Russia has refuted media reports that Washington and Moscow have agreed to share intelligence on Islamic State terrorists. The news reports followed Wednesday talks between Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and US Secretary of State John Kerry.
Excerpts from a proposed international trade agreement leaked to the web this week suggest that the United States is pushing for changes that would make it more difficult to get life-saving drugs overseas.
The only chemical weapons US forces found in Iraq between 2004 and 2011 were “designed in the United States” and “manufactured in Europe,” according to a new revealing report.
American and Iraqi troops found, and in multiple cases, were injured by aged and degraded stockpiles of chemical weapons in Iraq, a New York Times investigation, published late Tuesday, has found.
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.
The passage in the British House of Commons of a resolution favoring recognition of a Palestinian state, coming on the heels of the Swedish government’s announcement of its intention to extend such recognition, is the latest indicator of European disgust with Israeli policies.
Once in a million year comet ‘Siding Spring’ will pass close to Mars on Sunday and NASA has the best seats in the house
The heavens are hosting an event this weekend that occurs once in a million years or so.
A comet as hefty as a small mountain will pass mind-bogglingly close to Mars on Sunday, approaching within 87,000 miles at a speed of 126,000 mph.
NASA’s five robotic explorers at Mars — three orbiters and two rovers — are being repurposed to witness a comet named Siding Spring make its first known visit to the inner solar system. So are a European and an Indian spacecraft circling the red planet.
Bulk collection of communications data by intelligence agencies such as GCHQ is not mass surveillance, insists Theresa May, the Home Secretary
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.
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.”
Human rights organizations and activists called on Saudi Arabia to overturn the death sentence handed down to prominent Saudi cleric and pro-democracy activist Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr, accusing the Saudi regime of curbing freedom of speech and opinion.
Nimr, who has repeatedly criticized the lack of basic freedoms in Saudi Arabia and has called for greater rights for Saudi minorities, including the Shia, was convicted on Wednesday of multiple charges, including “delivering anti-government speeches” and “breaking allegiance with the ruler,” and was sentenced to death by The Specialized Criminal Court, Saudi Arabia’s “terrorism tribunal.”
A 13-year-old boy has been shot and killed by Israeli forces in a village near the occupied West Bank city of Ramallah.
Bahaa Badr was shot in the chest on Thursday evening during clashes between protesters and Israeli forces who entered Beit Liqya near the separation wall with Israel.
According to reports, soldiers opened fire after demonstrators threw stones and Molotov cocktails at three Israel army Jeeps that entered the village west of Ramallah.
It is still unclear whether Badr took part in the clashes, which the Israeli army described as an “illegal riot”.
UN chief Ban Ki-moon berates international community for contributing only $100,000 into his $1bn global fighting fund
Britain has called on world leaders to “wake up” to the crisis posed by the Ebola outbreak and to follow the example of the UK, US and France in providing medical and financial support to countries in West Africa.
As the UN secretary general, Ban Ki-moon, chided the international community for paying just $100,000 into his $1bn trust fund to fight Ebola, David Cameron called on other countries to “act in a similar way” to Britain, the US and France.
A British Jewish lawmaker has branded the government “cowardly” after it abstained from the vote on Palestinian statehood.
Speaking with the Anadolu Agency on Wednesday, Gerald Kaufman accused the government of running away from the debate in “a very cowardly way.”
“Members of the government and conservative backbenchers were instructed not to vote, which was a very cowardly thing to do,” he said.

Ebola may be part of God’s judgment for President Barack Obama’s alleged attempts to “divide Jerusalem,” said John Hagee, a San Antonio-based pastor and founder of Christians United For Israel.
Like I said, everyone is using Ebola to push whatever their own personal agenda is.
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.
Israeli naval forces have sunk a Palestinian fishing boat off the coast of the Gaza Strip Thursday.
“Three Israeli naval gunboats opened heavy machine fire on a Palestinian fishing boat off the shores of the central Gaza Strip city of Deir al-Balah,” Nizar Ayyash, head of Gaza’s Fishermen Union, told Anadolu Agency.
“[Five fishermen] tried to steer the boat towards Deir al-Balah, but it eventually sank due to heavy fire from the Israeli gunboats,” he said.
Two activist groups have filed an appeal in their lawsuit against the Los Angeles Police Department and the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department to access one week’s worth of license plate reader data.

Since the assassination of the Egyptian Prime Minister in 1945 and 1948, and dozens of other subsequent assassinations – most notably the assassination of President Sadat on October 6th 1981 and the assassinations perpetrated by the Brotherhood today in Egypt – their own history and the unfolding facts on the ground demonstrate that the Muslim Brotherhood have not forsaken violence and murder but rather have bequeathed this to the currents that are spawned from them.

On a special October 16, 2014 episode of Exposing Faux Capitalism, I interviewed Arthur Topham, who has been charged as a political thought criminal for allegedly violating Canada’s Criminal Code provisions for “willfully promoting hatred,” for his writings at his site, RadicalPress.com.
In this interview, the issues we discussed included:
- The Ontario Civil Liberties Association supporting his case and calling for a repeal of all “hate crime” provisions in the Criminal Code and circulating a petition calling for the B.C. Attorney General to revoke her consent for the prosecution of Arthur Topham.
Air France has quarantined a passenger airliner and its 183 passengers at Madrid’s Barajas Airport, following 4 suspected cases there, including 1 passenger on board that flight. Apparently, a Spanish missionary, who returned from Liberia was in contact with Ebola patients, before being rushed to Madrid’s Carlos III Hospital.
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. It’s about the CIA’s actions or inactions,” said a person familiar with the document, who asked not to be further identified because the executive summary – the only part to that will be made public – still is in the final stages of declassification.
Milwaukee Police Chief Edward Flynn has fired an officer who he said instigated a fight with a mentally ill man that eventually led the officer to shoot the man 14 times, killing him.
Officer Christopher Manney, 38, was dismissed nearly six months after 31-year-old Dontre Hamilton’s death. Activists have compared the shooting to that of Michael Brown, an unarmed, black 18-year-old shot by an officer in Ferguson, Missouri.
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.
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…
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.
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.
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.
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.
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).
IT IS WIDELY EXPECTED OBAMA WILL ISSUE AN UNCONSTITUTIONAL EXECUTIVE ORDER AND SEND U.S. NATIONAL GUARD TROOPS TO LIBERIA “TO HELP CONTAIN THE EBOLA OUTBREAK THERE,” ACCORDING TO NBC NEWS.
“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.
This lie takes the cake.
Stuart Littlewood examines the spurious arguments used by the British government to try to wheedle its way out of recognising Palestine as a state, as emphatically demanded by the British parliament.
Maybe Matt Drudge has gotten word of something that we’re not yet aware of just yet.
Or, perhaps, like any concerned citizen watching the Centers for Disease control botch the handling of Ebola, he sees the writing on the wall. The virus, as has been the case in Africa, will continue to spread.
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.”
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.
You know the joke? You describe something obviously heading for disaster — a friend crossing Death Valley with next to no gas in his car — and then add, “What could possibly go wrong?”
Such is the Middle East today. 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.
Record $103 billion plummet in China’s FX reserves in Q3. Capital flight, bank recapitalization, or something else?

What if you could spend a fraction of what it would cost to buy or build your own house and instead build a unique home that you could make completely off grid? It can be done and there’s a bunch of people who’ve done it already.
After knocking Whole Foods around in some past articles, credit needs to be given where credit is due for the time being. Their latest release of the ‘Whole Foods Market Responsibly Grown Rating System’ is an honest attempt at cleaning up many areas of our food supply that have gone badly astray.
If the US Deficit is ‘only’ $483 Billion, why does the Government Have to Borrow $1.1 Trillion to Fill the Hole?
Prime Minister David Cameron said on Wednesday Britain should stand up for the rights of the people of Hong Kong after more than two weeks of pro-democracy protests in the former British colony.
