THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!
“Men of great conversational powers almost universally practise a sort of lively sophistry and exaggeration which deceives for the moment both themselves and their auditors.” — Thomas Babington Macaulay
The President of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, was bitch slapping EU leaders, calling Hungarian PM ‘dictator’ in front of the press at the EU-Eastern Partnership summit in Latvia. Juncker, known for an anti-British stance, has threatened, possibly when sober, Britain if the country leaves the EU . Juncker has also called for an EU army. In the very long run, we will need
Frenchmen arrested with 100 kilo explosives, many detonators, 3 grenade launchers and kalashnikovs… preparing attack on Euro Football in France… Yesterday: Germany arrests three Syrians suspected of attack plot in Duesseldorf
We’re talking about compulsive, psychopathic behavior here.
While so much attention is directed towards presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s classified email scandal from her days as Secretary of State, it is worth dredging up the career-long history that the former First Lady and Arkansas lawyer has with losing, withholding or misplacing important records pertaining to scandals that she, her husband and affiliates have been involved in.
Agricultural biodiversity refers to that part of biodiversity that feeds and nurtures people–whether it is derived from the genetic resources of plants, animals, fish or forests. We are losing genetic resources for food and agriculture at an unprecedented rate. It can best be described as a biological meltdown. The statistics are numbing:
Crop genetic resources are being wiped out at the rate of 1-2% every year. Since the beginning of this century, about 75% of the genetic diversity of agricultural crops has been lost.
Livestock breeds are disappearing at an annual rate of 5%, or 6 breeds per month. In Europe, half of all breeds of domestic animals that existed at the turn of the century have become extinct, and 43% of the remaining breeds are endangered.
Hillary’s server is just a modern,high tech,dead drop!
A dead drop or dead letter box is a method of espionage tradecraft used to pass items or information between two individuals (e.g., a case officer and agent, or two agents) using a secret location, thus not requiring them to meet directly and thereby maintaining operational security. The method stands in contrast to the live drop, so called because two persons meet to exchange items or information.
A new study about the purported safety of genetically modified organisms, or GMOs, was released to the public this month by former Monsanto employee Dr. Alison Van Eenennaam. The Monsanto Company is best known for creating and marketing genetically modified seeds that contain their own pesticides or which are designed to withstand applications of the company’s flagship herbicide Roundup (active ingredient: glyphosate).
Dr. Van Eenennaam’s study has been loudly touted by pro-GMO talking-heads, who claim it has “ended the debate” about the safety of GMOs in the food chain. The claim is impressive: over 100 billion animals consuming a total exceeding 1 trillion meals of genetically modified grain over a 19-year period show no statistical difference in health when compared with livestock fed a conventional diet.
Unfortunately for Van Eenennaam (and the circus of biotech industry bloggers promoting her), the claim is not supported by the evidence in her meta-analysis of livestock data.
As of June 1st, Ghost Squad Hackers – the same group leading #OpIcarus – have launched a series of coordinated attacks against leading members of the corporate mainstream media. Giving credit where credit is due, Tec.mic and Softpedia were the first to report the operation. But their reports only tell a portion of the whole story, we will explain why in a moment…
The article below appears just a couple of weeks after GMO zealot Matt Ridley published an Opinion piece in The Times titled, “Time to embrace GM crops… and reap the rewards”.
Ridley wrote: ”It is a disgrace that Greenpeace still campaigns against golden rice, a vitamin-enhanced variety that could save hundreds of thousands of lives a year.”
But a study published in April (abstract at the foot of this post) by Glenn Davis Stone, professor of anthropology and environmental studies at Washington University in St Louis, and Dominic Glover, a rice researcher at the Institute for Development Studies at the University of Sussex, shows that anti-GMO activists are not to blame for Golden Rice’s unfulfilled promises. The fact is that the rice still isn’t ready, after 24 years of research and millions of dollars in funding.
President Barack Obama has commuted the sentences of 42 people, who are serving time in the U.S. for drug-related offenses. According to reports, 18 of these were originally sentenced to life imprisonment.
A vote for Hillary is a vote for WW3!
* Which country in the Middle East actually possesses nuclear weapons?
* Which country in the Middle East refuses to sign the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty?
* Which country in the Middle East refuses to allow international inspections of its nuclear facilities?
Note: Which country controls the U.S. congress. Israel
This decision by the Human Rights Council, nearly 50 years after Israel began its settlement enterprise, is certainly too little, too late. There are currently approximately 650,000 Israeli settlers living illegally in the occupied West Bank, including East Jerusalem, confining Palestinians to less than 40% of their land.
Complaints from New York State Assemblyman Dov Hikind, who represents Boro Park, Brooklyn’s other heavily-Hasidic neighborhood, averted the change, and, for the time being, the women-only hours at the Williamsburg pool will continue.
Note: Jewish law is superior to the laws of the United States?

There are examples of virtuous US policy, such as the Marshall Plan after WW2. In 1947, the Marshall Plan replaced the punitive Joint Chiefs of Staff 1067 (JCS 1067) plan that restricted trade to Germany and caused a slow starvation diet of ~1,000 calories a day that deliberately killed German civilians (23). The Marshall Plan worked for the revitalization of participating European countries’ economies. By the end of the program in 1953, all countries’ economies except for Germany were performing higher than pre-war levels (24).
As you may know, many US activists in your world of the present request a “New Marshall Plan” for global development rather than expanding “wars on terror.” Many activists, including Dr. King, requested this rather than “wars on communism,” especially with the Vietnam War.
