NASA-MorgellonsWhat Does NASA Have in Common with Morgellons Disease? – by Catherine J. Frompovich, ActivistPost.com – “Readers may be asking, “What’s Morgellons disease?” Well, it’s one of the new, technical age diseases, which may have its roots in genetic engineering/modification or even transhumanism research. Allopathic medicine is bombing out on acknowledging that it exists, claiming sufferers are delusional, but those who do acknowledge it, feel it’s a legitimate health problem and candidly suggest there is no treatment for it… However, most of the efforts to research and deal with Morgellons have been taken on by patients like Cindy Casey, who tells her story here… Interestingly though, some research has surfaced that may put another spin on Morgellons. That evidence is a NASA logo embedded in Morgellons fibers as artificial bio-intelligence! Don’t believe that? Well, how about this video that apparently exposes what NASA’s been doing for close to 40 years: creating artificial life by altering the genomes of cells. The early plans were titled ‘Artificial Cells: Prospects for Biotechnology.’ ”

Jeremy Corbyn and the Jews – by Gilad Atzmon, Gilad.co.uk – “The vastly growing popularity of Jeremy Corbyn amongst Brits can be easily explained. Following decades of cultural Marxist, divisive Identiterian politics and Zionist-Neocon domination within the British Left, Corbyn brings along a refreshing ideological alternative. Corbyn seems to re-unite the Brits. He cares for the weak. He opposes interventionist wars. He represents the return of the good old left as opposed to New Labour’s affinity with big money, choseness  and exceptionalism. He cares for the students and the youth. He thinks about the future and promises to undo the damage created by Blair and Cameron. But as Britain sees the rise of a hugely popular ideological movement, many Jewish institutions see Corbyn as an arch enemy. They would prefer to see him gone and have used nearly every trick in the book to discredit him.”

Israel-Syria-mapIsrael “Drills” Ground Incursion In Syria; Pretext Fighting Terror Israel Helped Create – by Brandon Turbeville, ActivistPost.com – “The justification for the concern over the Golan border area is that “Iran has opened a new front against Israel on the Golan Heights.” This accusation is leveled repeatedly throughout the articles detailing the drills and preparations being made by Israel yet neither the media outlets nor the Israeli government has offered credible evidence to buttress their claims… The source for claims that Iran has opened a new offensive against Israel seems to be rooted in a recent clash between IDF forces and four Druze villagers who allegedly attempted to detonate explosive devices at three locations along the border fence. Israel blames the alleged bombing attempt on Iran, claiming that the Persian nation recruited the four Druze villagers to conduct terrorist attacks against Israel… Without pointing out that much of the Golan Heights was stolen by Israel decades ago and represents yet another illegal Israeli occupation, it is also important to note that not one shred of evidence has yet been provided to back up Israel’s claims regarding the Iranian involvement.”

EU Commission Says None of Your Business on Glyphosate Risk Assessment – by Heather Callaghan, ActivistPost.com – “Unlike propagandists acting as scientism skeptics, who pretend it’s safe to drink glyphosate (the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide) – many other studies and observations prove that human exposure is hazardous. Sometimes it’s finding out that glyphosate can lead to breast cancer in parts per trillion, that it hijacks hormones and is found in breast milk and in rain samples. Sometimes it’s a farmer waking up to discover that his piglets are deformed and dying – so he sends them off to a lab. Sometimes you find out that the so-called experts who tell us to “trust science” as they pretend to drink glyphosate are actually getting funds from Monsanto… Here, we actually have independent researchers ready to face the results of the assessment, come what may, and the Commission basically says, “you can’t look at that.” Even though parts of Europe are known for blocking GMO crops, restricting pesticides and labeling or restricting GMO food products, Monsanto et al. have been orbiting the EU strategically finding openings. Whether it’s by funding research projects to “help the bees,” pretending to help the bees, or better yet, getting super cozy with the commish‘.”

Michael-n-Lowell_MilkenThe brothers who funded Blair, Israeli settlements and Islamophobia – by Sarah Marusek and David Miller, MiddeEastEye.net – “between 2009 and 2013, the Lowell Milken Family Foundation funnelled $607,000 to the Ariel settlement in the central occupied West Bank, either through the tax-exempt charity American Friends of Ariel or directly to the Ariel University Center of Samaria… Indeed, Lowell Milken’s contributions to the illegal settlement are so important that the Friends of Ariel website has dubbed him ‘Ariel’s Celebrity’… Also between 2009-2013, the Milken family foundations donated $555,000 to Aish HaTorah, an international Jewish Orthodox organisation that staunchly defends Israeli policies and features pro-settlement articles on its website. Ronn Torossian, a spokesperson for Aish HaTorah in New York, once told writer Jeffrey Goldberg of The Atlantic magazine, ‘I think we should kill a hundred Arabs or a thousand Arabs for every one Jew they kill,’ adding that: ‘If someone from a town blows himself up and kills Jews, we should wipe out the town he’s from, kill them all.’ ”

23 Nations Around The World Where Stock Market Crashes Are Already Happening – by Michael Snyder, TheEconomicCollapseBlog.com – “As you read this article, almost every single stock market in the world is down significantly from a record high that was set either earlier this year or late in 2014.  But even though stocks have been sliding in the western world, they haven’t completely collapsed just yet… In much of the developing world, it is a very different story.  Emerging market currencies are crashing hard, recessions are starting, and equity prices are getting absolutely hammered… Posted below is a list that I put together of 23 nations around the world where stock market crashes are already happening.  To see the stock market chart for each country, just click the link…”

Kerry-at-Erdogan's_TableAnkara: the New Capital of Jihad – by Mike Whitney, InformationClearingHouse.info – “Has US policy in Syria fallen prey to the political ambitions of one man, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan?.. Certainly not. Washington has its own malignant agenda in Syria, which is to topple Syrian President Bashar al Assad, split the country into pieces, lock-down critical pipeline corridors, and establish a “Salafist principality” that will justify continued US intervention across the Middle East for the foreseeable future. These are the objectives of US policy and they haven’t changed because of anything Erdogan has done… That’s not to say that Erdogan hasn’t complicated matters by requiring the US to play by Turkey’s rules.  He has. Just look at the Incirlik deal. In theory, it looks like a win-win for US war-planners who will now be able to cross into Syrian airspace in 15 minutes instead of the two hours it took from Bahrain. But the devil is in the details which suggest constraints on the US military’s ability to conduct its own campaign or even choose its own targets. Take a look at this excerpt from an article in Al Monitor: ‘Turkey wants to open Incirlik not only to US warplanes but also to the aircraft of anti-IS NATO members France, the United Kingdom, Belgium and Canada. What Turkey wants to accomplish here is to affix NATO legitimacy to the operation by reinforcing the perception that operations against IS targets in Syria are part of a NATO mission… Turkey insists that operations, flight routes and targets should be decided collectively by the coordination cell, but subject to Turkey’s final approval. This means decisions made at Incirlik must be conveyed to Ankara immediately. The coordination center in Ankara must be kept informed of all operations and flights in real time with Incirlik.’ ”

Trumping the Federal Debt Without Playing the Default Card – by Ellen Brown, EllenBrown.com – “In 2011, Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul proposed dealing with the debt ceiling by simply voiding out the $1.7 trillion in federal securities then held by the Fed. As Stephen Gandel explained Paul’s solution in Time Magazine, the Treasury pays interest on the securities to the Fed, which returns 90% of these payments to the Treasury. Despite this shell game of payments, the $1.7 trillion in US bonds owned by the Fed is still counted toward the debt ceiling. Paul’s plan: Get the Fed and the Treasury to rip up that debt. It’s fake debt anyway. And the Fed is legally allowed to return the debt to the Treasury to be destroyed… Congressman Alan Grayson, a Democrat, also endorsed this proposal.”

French_Train_Heroes‘Let’s Roll’ Part Deux: American (Military) Tourists Thwart ‘Random ISIS Attack’ in Paris – from 21stCenturyWire.com – “According to accounts, there was a second passenger with the alleged gunman. New York Times reported: ‘Less than an hour away from Paris, a French passenger got up from his seat to use the toilets at the back of the carriage. Suddenly, in front of him rose a slightly built man. Across the man’s chest, in a sling, was an automatic rifle of the kind favored by jihadists the world over: an AK-47.’ Another key hero character in this drama is passenger, Chris Norman, who the media have been describing as ‘a British consultant who helps African entrepreneurs find financing in Europe.’ A traveling salesman of international third world finance, no less. However, while speaking to media, it’s clear that Norman has a clear South African accent, but is not referred to as South African, but instead as ‘British’. It is not known whether or not Norman has a defense industry or government background.”

Global stocks in ‘panic mode’ as Chinese factory slump drags on markets – by Shane Hickey and Martin Farrer, TheGuardian.com – “The preliminary Caixin/Markit China manufacturing purchasing managers’ index (PMI) stood at 47.1 in August, well below economists’ expectations of 47.7 and down from July’s final 47.8… The reading was the worst since March 2009, the depths of the global financial crisis, and the sixth straight one below the 50-point level, which separates growth in activity from contraction on a monthly basis… ‘The poor number confirms what higher frequency data has been suggesting, that more weakness in the economy is likely,’ said Chester Liaw, an economist at Forecast in Singapore… He added: ‘The authorities claimed that there will be a rebound in demand in the second half but it appears that the opposite is happening. With first half GDP scraping the bottom of the barrel at 7%, the authorities will have a fight on their hands to ensure that the second half of the year comes in at even the same level.’.. A detailed breakdown of the activity survey showed conditions were deteriorating on almost every level, with factory output sinking to a near four-year low, domestic and export orders declining at a faster rate than in July and companies laid off more workers.”

Carola_Herlin-stabbed-IKEAThe IKEA Murders: Sweden in Crisis – by Ingrid Carlqvist, GatestoneInstitute.org – “The elder of the two asylum seekers, a 36-year-old man, had twice been denied residency status in Sweden — because he had already been granted residency it in Italy — but he had not yet been deported. (Eritreans without residence permits in other EU-countries automatically get to stay in Sweden.).. The killer also inflicted life-threatening injuries on himself, and underwent several surgeries before the police could finally question him. On August 14, he confessed. His 23-year-old compatriot was released from custody, because the police no longer believe he had anything to do with the murders or had even known what his friend was planning to do… Fear has now struck the Swedes. Even those who had routinely brand critics of immigration and multiculturalism racist, were shaken to the core.”

US No-Fly List Uses ‘Predictive Judgement’ Instead of Hard Evidence – from yro.Slashdot.org – “The Obama administration is seeking to block the release of further information about how the predictions are made, as damaging to national security. “If the Government were required to provide full notice of its reasons for placing an individual on the No Fly List and to turn over all evidence (both incriminating and exculpatory) supporting the No Fly determination, the No Fly redress process would place highly sensitive national security information directly in the hands of terrorist organizations and other adversaries,” says the assistant director of the FBI’s counterterrorism division, Michael Steinbach.”

Henry-n-cuffsKissinger: ‘Breaking Russia Has Become Objective For US’ – from RT.com via InformationClearingHouse.info – “With the armed conflict in Ukraine still showing no signs of resolution, Kissinger repeated his previous proposal for Ukraine to become a buffer, or mediator state between Russia and the West… “We should explore the possibilities of a status of nonmilitary grouping on the territory between Russia and the existing frontiers of NATO,” he told The National Interest. “The West hesitates to take on the economic recovery of Greece; it’s surely not going to take on Ukraine as a unilateral project. So one should at least examine the possibility of some cooperation between the West and Russia in a militarily nonaligned Ukraine.”.. While Kissinger insists that he believes that Ukraine’s territorial integrity, including Crimea, which joined Russia last year, should have remained unaffected, he called for the West to stop backing Kiev at all costs, even as the victims of the conflict pile up… “The Ukraine crisis is turning into a tragedy because it is confusing the long-range interests of global order with the immediate need of restoring Ukrainian identity,” summed up the veteran diplomat.”

New NASA research points to possible HAARP connection in Japan earthquake, tsunami – from TheWatchers.Adorraeli.com – “A casual glance at the graphics presented as part of Ouzounov’s research data shows near-perfect heat rings present above the epicenter of the quake. If radon emissions from the fault line were truly responsible for creating these heat zones, they would more than likely have had irregular, scattered appearances, rather than concentric circles. This anomaly by itself debunks the theory that the impending earthquake caused the heat patterns… Also, readings from the HAARP Induction Magnetometer, which visualizes the frequency spectrum of signals detected in the earth’s geomagnetic field, show that a steady, ultra-low frequency (ULF) of roughly 2.5 Hz was being broadcast days before the earthquake. The 2.5 Hz ULF happens to be the exact same frequency as the natural resonance produced by an earthquake — and since there were no constant earthquakes occurring on the days before the quake as the HAARP Induction Magnetometer appeared to indicate, the logical conclusion is that the signal was being broadcast to induce the quake (http://presscore.ca/2011/?p=1624).”

Israel Fires Rockets Into Syria, Claims Targets Were ‘Iran-Backed’. Are They Playing With Fire? – by Randy Johnson, 21stCenturyWire.com – “With regards to the Middle East, wherever you stand on certain events being ‘designed’, or at least capitalized off of by direct beneficiaries – like military industrial complex stakeholders, defense contractors, mega oil corporations and politicians – it should be obvious that Syria seems to have been in the works for some time. Foreign interests have been at work to destabilize the country since fracturing began in 2011… The Middle East is a veritable “False Flag Grab Bag”.  It can be ISIS or Al Qaeda–or any terror group you never heard of yet.  It can come from anywhere in the region. The reasons for things to escalate, requiring action in the minds of Western political leaders and conflict-friendly network and cable news media are many.  The infamous Syrian “chemical attacks” two years ago in August 2013, although thoroughly debunked by 21WIRE and others, was a serious attempt to kick things off in the region, but it never fully materialized… We see the cycle beginning again. This week, a marketplace massacre in Douma, Syria is being blamed on the Syrian government’s military, and as expected, it has prompted western media calls for another humanitarian intervention. Expect more such incidents in the coming weeks and months.”

Bradstreet-GcMAF-textGcMAF (Gc Macrophage Activating Factor) – by Alfred Adask, Adask.wordpress.com – “…three other now-dead doctors were clearly associated with GcMAF.  At least one charged that childhood vaccines were linked to destroying a child’s ability to produce and maintain GcMAF in his body throughout his life and thus made children more susceptible to autism, illness and premature death… If vaccines are shown to suppress the natural production of GcMAF, billions of dollars in profits for pharmaceutical firms may be lost and some medical researchers, corporate executives and FDA regulators might be subject to civil or criminal charges.  The opportunity for conspiracy theories is substantial… The five deaths in four weeks makes the conspiracy theories seem credible… There may be dozens, even more, of YouTube videos on the subject.  Here are three.” (emph. added)

New Zealand govt slammed by rights group for blasphemy law ‘enacted by stealth – from RT.com – “The Harmful Digital Communications Act came into force on July 2. It introduces a number of communication principles. One of them states: ‘A digital communication should not denigrate an individual by reason of his or her colour, race, ethnic or national origins, religion, gender, sexual orientation, or disability.’.. Violators of the law will have to pay a fine up to 50,000NZD (almost $33,200) or serve two years in prison. Corporate bodies will face even higher fines – up to 200,000NZD almost ($133,200)… Justice Minister Amy Adams said a special agency would be created to work with victims of cyber-bullying… ‘The agency will help victims of harassment or cyber-bullying to resolve complaints as quickly and painlessly as possible. It will work with parties to help get objectionable content off the internet, and provide advice on other possible remedies,’ Adams said…”

Abu_Sayyaf-US_SASSAS troops ‘dressed in US uniforms and joined special forces on Isis Abu Sayyaf overnight raid in Syria – by Loulla-Mae Eleftheriou-Smith, Independent.co.uk – “British SAS soldiers were reportedly part of the US special forces mission that saw Islamic State commander Abu Sayyaf killed and his wife captured during an overnight raid… The secret raid was revealed in May this year but was announced by the White House as a US special forces operation, in which Sayyaf was shot dead in a gun battle after “engaging” with American troops… The newspaper claims the elite British troops wore US uniforms, carried US weapons and were flown into Syria’s Deir ez-Zor in a US Osprey aircraft… The SAS then reportedly dug into the desert and carried out a surveillance mission on Sayyaf’s compound, confirming his presence, before US jets attacked the Isis base and America’s Delta Force entered the area, shooting Sayyaf dead.

From the Psy-Ops-Hit-Piece Desk: EXPOSED: The ‘healing’ religion sweeping Britain that sells bleach-liquid cancer ‘cures’ – THE net is closing on supporters of a healing “religion” which sells a dangerous bleach liquid “cure” for cancer and autism – by James Murray, Express.co.uk – “The Mexico-based Church of Genesis II is gaining a firm foothold in Britain despite its medically unproven claims offering cures for chronic diseases… The church actively promotes the global distribution of its Miracle Mineral Solution, which can kill (Note: unproven assertion presented as fact)… Experts say the liquids, which are also sold as enemas (untrue assertion), contain the same chemicals as industrial bleach… Trading standards officials are closely monitoring the activities of a senior member of the church, Amanda Mary Jewell, who lives in a mansion in Farnham, Surrey.” – In the wake of the raid on a meeting in a house in Surrey by Trading Standards Board (regulatory) officials, it is looking like a repressive witch-hunt is being created against the use of remedies containing Chlorine Dioxide (ClO2), aka MMS, possibly worldwide. A trial by public opinion is underway. Real science need not apply.


“We Have A Civil War”: Inside Turkey’s Descent Into Political, Social, And Economic Chaos – by Tyler Durden, ZeroHedge.com – “Turkey has had a difficult time explaining why, after obtaining NATO support for a new offensive campaign to root out “terrorists”, its efforts have concentrated almost solely on the PKK and not on ISIS. As we’ve discussed in great detail (here, here, and here), and as the entire world is now acutely aware, Ankara’s newfound zeal for eradicating ISIS is nothing more than a cover for its efforts to undermine support for the PKK ahead of snap elections where President Tayyip Erdogan hopes to win back AKP’s absolute majority in parliament which it lost last month for the first time in 12 years… Cavusoglu was effectively suggesting that the reason it appears as though Ankara is overwhelmingly targeting the PKK at the possible expense of efforts to weaken ISIS is because Turkey must wait for the US to show up first, at which point the “real” fight will begin with the possible assistance of Saudi Arabia, Jordan, and Qatar. In the meantime, the country is descending into civil war and for many Kurds, the frontlines are all too familiar.”

Alaska-Dead_WhalesWhales continue to die off in Pacific Ocean; scientists suspect Fukushima radiation at fault – from NaturalNews.com – “No one knows what caused the death of the whales; however, scientists are narrowing in on the kernel of truth as they weed out possibilities. What scientists do know is that all the whales appear to have died around the same time… Samples have only been taken from one whale carcass so far. Researchers are still awaiting the results on two others tests for paralytic shellfish poisoning (PSP) and cesium-137… The mainstream media has cited a rise in ocean temperatures and acidity (round up the usual suspects) as possible causes of the whale deaths while ignoring the presence of cesium-137, a radioactive isotope with a 30-year half-life released from Fukushima.”

U.S. is Destroying Europe – by Eric Zuesse, StrategicCulture.org – “Shamus Cooke at Off-Guardian headlines on 3 August 2015, “Obama’s ‘Safe Zone’ in Syria Intended to Turn It into New Libya,” and he reports that Obama has approved U.S. air support for Turkey’s previously unenfoceable no-fly zone over Syria. The U.S. will now shoot down all of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s planes that are targeting the extremist-Muslim groups, including ISIS, that have taken over huge swaths of Syrian territory… Cooke reports: ‘Turkey has been demanding this no-fly zone from Obama since the Syrian war started. It’s been discussed throughout the conflict and even in recent months, though the intended goal was always the Syrian government. And suddenly the no-fly zone is happening — right where Turkey always wanted it — but it’s being labeled an ‘anti-ISIS’ safe zone, instead of its proper name: ‘Anti Kurdish and anti-Syrian government’ safe zone.’ ”

Moshe_Ya’alonIsraeli defence minister says he is ‘not responsible’ for lives of Iranian nuclear scientists following historic US-Iran deal – by Rose Troup Buchanan, Independent.co.uk – “Israel’s Defence Minister has appeared to imply that his country is prepared to assassinate Iran’s nuclear scientists following a historic deal with the West… Moshe Ya’alon, the former chief of staff of the Israeli Defence Forces, gave a damning assessment of the nuclear agreement between Iran and a number of western nations in an interview with German newspaper Der Spiegel… The 65-year-old minister condemned the deal, reportedly telling the newspaper ‘ultimately it is very clear, one way or another; Iran’s nuclear programme must be stopped.’ ” – I’m gonna make you an offer you can’t refuse…

Scotland to ban GM crop growing – from BBC.com – “Richard Lochhead said the Scottish government was not prepared to “gamble” with the future of the country’s £14bn food and drink sector… He is to request that Scotland be excluded from any European consents for the cultivation of GM crops… Mr Lochhead added: ‘There is no evidence of significant demand for GM products by Scottish consumers and I am concerned that allowing GM crops to be grown in Scotland would damage our clean and green brand, thereby gambling with the future of our £14bn food and drink sector… ‘Scottish food and drink is valued at home and abroad for its natural, high quality which often attracts a premium price, and I have heard directly from food and drink producers in other countries that are ditching GM because of a consumer backlash.’ ”

Stephen_Lendman2Spying on Americans: Senate Intelligence Authorization Act, Would Allow Arrest of Journalists, Anti-war Activists, Academics and Students – by Stephen Lendman, GlobalResearch.ca – “If enacted, Section 603 will require online companies to inform Washington of any “actual knowledge” of “facts and circumstances” related to undefined “terrorist activity” – meaning warrantless searches and seizures of personal electronic content will be authorized, potentially subjecting countless numbers of innocent people to unjustifiable scrutiny… Vague language makes independent journalists, political, anti-war, and social justice activists, academics and students doing legitimate research, as well as others vulnerable to being called suspected terrorists… The possibility could encourage self-censorship. Service providers may over-report to show compliance with the law. Online users could be flagged for using suspect words or phrases… One definition of terrorist activity can be another’s way of describing freedom fighting. Legitimate government criticism could be misinterpreted and misused.”

Vaccine industry social influence document reveals attempted bribery of ‘key social influencers’ such as Disney / Marvel, ESPN, Oprah and a CNN reporter – by Mike Adams, NaturalNews.com – The document calls for the vaccine industry to, ‘Identify influential spokespersons from multiple sectors (e.g., business, sports, music) to reach each identified target population.’.. Targets are identified as groups that can either be influenced or surveiled to track their vaccine status. ‘Data should be used and communicated to align targets to specific needs; disease burden, vaccine coverage, age, geodemographics, economics, sex, race, ethnicity, and family work roles are examples of areas in which to collect data,’.. The report then admits that financial incentives should be paid to such influencers based on how many vaccines they help promote… a process which can be achieved by spreading scare stories about false flag outbreaks, for example. This is called ‘internal excitement for immunization awareness.’ ”

David_Sweat-Richard_MattAfter 2 Killers Fled, New York Prisoners Say, Beatings Were Next – by Michael Schwirtz and Michael Winerip, NYTimes.com – “They were also subjected to harsh policies ordered by the State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision: Dozens of inmates, many of whom had won the right to live on the honor block after years of good behavior, were transferred out of Clinton to other prisons. Many were placed in solitary confinement, and stripped of privileges they had accrued over the years — even though no prisoners have yet to be linked to Mr. Matt’s and Mr. Sweat’s actions… Indeed, it is prison employees who have been implicated: One has pleaded guilty to aiding the escape; another faces criminal charges; nine officers have been suspended and the prison’s leadership has been removed.”

German arms sales to Arab states surge by 50% – from PressTV.ir – “…despite an earlier announcement by German Vice Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel that the country would reduce its exports of military equipment to foreign nations…German arms exports to Arab states have climbed by 50 percent since January compared to the same period in the previous year… According to (Der Spiegel) magazine, the German government endorsed significantly more weapon sales to foreign countries between January and late June 2015 than the similar period in 2014… The total amount of the so-called individual weapon sales licenses surged by nearly 50 percent and reached 3.31 billion euros, the report added.”

David_Stockman-of-OMBThe Aspen War Games——No Place For Old Peaceniks – by David Stockman, DavidStockmansContraCorner.com – “The debate about “containing” versus “defeating” ISIS proved that in spades. In fact, the “exterminate ISIS” team embodied an exact caricature of the bipartisan folly which has congealed in the Washington War Party… Not surprisingly the #2 chair in the duo was occupied by a an-out-and-out neocon warmonger, Professor Phillip Zelikow. He was an architect of the Bush wars on WMD and head of the 9/11 Whitewash Commission. His case boiled down to shouting vehemently that the Islamic hordes are heading for Times Square… So America needs to obliterate the 200,000 citizens of Raqqah, Syria before they get us. Never mind that there is not one iota of evidence that the self-appointed enforcers of Islamic purity who occupy a few dusty desert towns in the Upper Euphrates have any intentions or capacity to attack the fleshpots of Broadway and 42nd.” – Note: includes verbiage by Stockman that seems to suggest he still supports the Official Conspiracy Theory of Osama bin Laden as the mastermind of 9/11.

Former Director of U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency says U.S. knew their Syria policies supported radical extremists and could lead to them “establishing a…Salafist principality”

Michael Fallon warns Ukraine war remains ‘red hot’ as he pledges more British military help – Defence Secretary says Ukraine’s eastern border still at risk from Vladimir Putin and promises UK will offer support for as long as it is needed (emph. added) –  by Ben Farmer and Roland Oliphant, Telegraph.co.uk – Mr Fallon spoke on a visit to see British military training teams outside the Ukrainian capital, as a surge in fighting in the east of the country saw the heaviest artillery attacks on government positions for six months, with both sides accusing one another of readying for a return to all-out offensive warfare…The most intense violence has centred on Starohnativka, a town 30 miles north of the Ukrainian-controlled strategic port of Mariupol…The Ukrainian military said it repulsed an attack by 400 rebels backed by tanks who assaulted its positions there on Monday morning. Shelling was reported to be continuing in the area on Tuesday…Eduard Basurin, a military spokesman for the self proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic, denied breaking the ceasefire and said at least one civilian had died in an “unprecedented” Ukrainian artillery attack near Starohnativka.”

“Orwellian” FBI Says Citizens Should Have No Secrets That The Government Can’t Access – by Tyler Durden, ZeroHedge.com – The latest sign of this stealth takeover of civil rights and freedom was epitomized in recent Senate testimony by FBI Director James Comey, who voiced his objections to civilian use of encryption to protect personal data – information the government has no automatic right to obtain… As reported by The New American, Comey testified that he believes the government’s spy and law enforcement agencies should have unfettered access to everything Americans may store or send in electronic format: On computer hard drives, in so-called i-clouds, in email and in text messaging – for our own safety and protection. Like many in government today, Comey believes that national security is more important than constitutional privacy protections or, apparently, due process. After all, aren’t criminals the only ones who really have anything to hide? “We are not asking to expand the government’s surveillance authority, but rather we are asking to ensure that we can continue to obtain electronic information and evidence pursuant to the legal authority that Congress has provided to us to keep America safe,” Comey said during the Senate hearing… What does all this mean? It simply means that at every level, government considers its own citizens hostile… Oh, and there’s nothing we can do about it.”

Merck Black-Ops Stalking of ex-employee Whistleblower Brandy Vaughn

Tianjin-Explosion“I Could Feel Death” – Massive Explosion Rocks Chinese Port City, Martial Law Declared, 42 Dead (9 Firemen), Over 400 Injured  – by Tyler Durden, ZeroHedge.com – ” ‘I thought it was an earthquake, so I rushed downstairs without my shoes on,” Tianjin resident Zhang Siyu, whose home is several kilometers from the blast site, said in a telephone interview. “Only once I was outside did I realize it was an explosion. There was the huge fireball in the sky with thick clouds. Everybody could see it.’..  Zhang said she could see wounded people weeping. She said she did not see anyone who had been killed, but ‘I could feel death.’..  There was no indication of what caused the blasts, and no immediate sign of any large release of toxic chemicals into the air…  ‘It was like what we were told a nuclear bomb would be like,’ said truck driver Zhao Zhencheng, who spent the night in the cab of his truck. ‘I’ve never even thought I’d see such a thing. It was terrifying but also beautiful.’ ”

ISIS Enshrines a Theology of Rape – Claiming the Quran’s support, the Islamic State codifies sex slavery in
conquered regions of Iraq and Syria and uses the practice as a recruiting tool – by Rukmini Callimachi, NYTimes.com – “The systematic rape of women and girls from the Yazidi religious minority has become deeply enmeshed in the organization and the radical theology of the Islamic State in the year since the group announced it was reviving slavery as an institution. Interviews with 21 women and girls who recently escaped the Islamic State, as well as an examination of the group’s official communications, illuminate how the practice has been enshrined in the group’s core tenets… The trade in Yazidi women and girls has created a persistent infrastructure, with a network of warehouses where the victims are held, viewing rooms where they are inspected and marketed, and a dedicated fleet of buses used to transport them.”

israel-separation_wallPalestine: One state for all or a final Zionist ethnic cleansing? – by Alan Hart, VeteransToday.com – “As I revealed in Goodbye to the Security Council’s Integrity, the title of Chapter 3 of Conflict Without End?, the sub-title of Volume Three of the American edition of my book Zionism: The Real Enemy of the Jews, the following is what Peres said to me (my emphasis added): ‘I fear it is already too late (for peace). Every day that passes sees new bricks on new settlements. Begin knows exactly what he’s doing (by expanding his settlement programme on the West Bank as fast as possible). He’s creating the conditions for a Jewish civil war. He knows that no Jewish prime minister is going down in history as the one who gave the order to the Jewish army to shoot Jewish people (out of occupation).’.. At the time Peres was hoping to replace Begin as prime minister after Israel’s next election and he added, “I’m not” (going down in history as the one who gave the order to the Jewish army to shoot Jewish people out of occupation)… The obvious question contains its own answer. If it was too late in 1980 when they were only about 70,000 illegal Jewish settlers, how much more too late is it today when there are in excess of 500,000 and with that number rising on a daily basis?”

Pentagon Sending Local Police Departments Armored Vehicles to Bust Stoners – by Carey Wedler, ActivistPost.com – “Jim Pasco of the Fraternal Order of Police—a de facto police union and advocacy group known for aggressively defending officers accused of brutality and misconduct—denied the equipment is requested to police marijuana and other illicit substances. ‘In reality, they’re almost exclusively used as defensive tools,’ he said. ‘It’s a rare drug enforcement case that would require an MRAP. We’re talking barricaded shooters and downed officers.’.. But the FOIA documents directly contradict Pasco’s description of police motives. Mother Jones notes that in at least seven separate cases, police specifically cited marijuana as a reason to obtain an armored vehicle. In 2012, Sheriff Tom Bosenko of Shasta County, California requested two armored vehicles to be “used during apprehension of suspects in both Marijuana eradications and during high risk search warrant service for drug offenders.” Marijuana, tied with methamphetamines, was the drug most cited by police applying for MRAPs.”

Christie-CluelessChris Christie Flunked Civics 101——Proved He’s Clueless About 4th Amendment in Debate With Rand Paul – by Andrew P. Napolitano, DavidStockmansContraCorner.com – “Hence, under any of the above federal laws, none of which is constitutional, the NSA can read whatever emails, listen to whatever phone calls in real time, and capture whatever text messages, monthly bank statements, credit card bills, legal or medical records it wishes merely by telling a secret court in Washington, D.C., that it needs them… And the government gets this data by area codes or zip codes, or by telecom or computer server customer lists, not by naming a person or place about whom or which it is suspicious… These federal acts not only violate the Fourth Amendment, they not only bring back a system the Founders and the Framers hated, rejected and fought a war to be rid of, they not only are contrary to the letter and spirit of the Constitution, but they produce information overload by getting all the data they can about everyone. Stated differently, under the present search-them-all regime, the bad guys can get through because the feds have more data than they can analyze, thus diluting their ability to focus on the bad guys.”

Hollande Under Fire After Newspaper Reveals True Cost of Mistral Fiasco – from SputnikNews.com – “Both Marine Le Pen’s National Front and Nicolas Sarkozy’s Republicans party came out with criticisms of Hollande for his decision to back out of the Mistral deal with Russia… France’s far-right Front National (FN) party president Marine Le Pen visits Moscow’s Red Square before a meeting with Russia’s State Duma speaker Sergei Naryshkin on May 26, 2015… Nicolas Sarkozy, the former French president, was in charge during negotiations which secured the deal for France. At the time, many political analysts saw the deal as a show of warming relations with France, following Sarkozy’s role in negotiating the end of the 2008 South Ossetia crisis… Le Pen’s National Front party put out a communique saying that the “astronomical cost” of the broken deal adds ‘indecency to the ineptitude of this decision.’ The party communique added that the money could have instead been used to solve budget issues of local governments or to build a new aircraft carrier for France itself.”

‘Our Central American spring’: protesters demand an end to decades of corruption – by Sibylla Brodzinsky, TheGuardian.com – “With their torches lighting the way through the darkening city streets, protesters, many with small children in tow, danced a few steps to the music blaring from a loudspeaker mounted on the bed of a pickup truck… The last time Hondurans protested like this was after the 2009 coup against then president Manuel Zelaya, which eroded already fragile institutions and left a power vacuum during which the IHSS fraud scheme was hatched… Hernández has said his government would get to the bottom of the corruption scandal “no matter who falls”… But he has resisted the demand by protesters for the creation of an independent criminal investigative body under the aegis of the United Nations, like one established nearly a decade ago in neighbouring Guatemala, which has been crucial in uncovering cases of government corruption and organized crime.”

What the Latest Currency ‘War’ is All About – by Pepe Escobar, InformationClearingHouse.info – “Having the yuan track close to the US dollar served China very well — until now. QEs in the EU and Japan led to a weaker euro and a weaker yen — while the yuan remained stable against the US dollar… Translation; since over a year ago, in June 2014, the yuan’s real exchange rate has been the world’s strongest, increasing by 13.5 percent. That was more than that of the US dollar (12.8 percent)… It was not hard for Beijing to do the math; the strong link with the US dollar was eroding China’s competitiveness with top trading partners Japan and Europe… Yet a simple 2 per cent devaluation may not be enough to boost China’s exports. After all the yuan appreciated more than 10 percent over the past year relative to China’s top trading partners… Thus the inside word in Beijing about “powerful voices inside the government” pushing for the Bank of China towards an overall 10 per cent devaluation of the yuan. Now that would certainly boost exports… So the devaluation this week — which has generated so much hysteria — seems to point towards a few more devaluations further on down the road.”

Assad-Putin-360Is Putin Planning to Sell-Out Assad? – by Mike Whitney, InformationClearingHouse.info – “In contrast, Russia does not want a divided Syria. Aside from the fact that Moscow and Damascus are long-term allies (and Russia has a critical naval facility in Tartus, Syria), a balkanized Syria poses serious threats for Russia, the most significant of which is the probable emergence of a jihadi base of operations that will be used to deploy terrorists across Central Asia thus undermining Moscow’s grand plan to integrate the continents into a giant free trade zone from Lisbon to Vladivostok.  Russian President Vladimir Putin takes the threat of terrorism very seriously, which is why he has been working around-the-clock to engage leaders from Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Iraq, Syria, Iran, the Kurds and Syrian opposition groups in negotiations to put an end to the fighting and reestablish security in Syria.  It’s worth noting that there’s been an effective blackout of these crucial negotiations in the western media, mainly because they make Putin look like a peacemaker who is respected among other world leaders and who is making every effort to stop the spread of terrorism. Obviously, that doesn’t jibe with the media’s portrayal of Putin as the new Hitler, so they’ve simply omitted the meetings from their coverage.”

Your Rights Removed For Monsanto’s Benefit – by Dr. Mercola, Articles-Mercola.com – “The bill is commonly referred to as the “Deny Americans the Right to Know” or DARK Act, as it extends unprecedented protection to Monsanto and other biotechnology companies while decimating state- and consumer rights… In addition to barring states from creating their own food labeling requirements for genetically modified organisms (GMOs), HR 1599 also preempts any and all state and local regulation of GE crops – increasing corporate control of our food systems… Adding insult to injury, HR 1599 will allow GMOs to be labeled as “natural,” while forcing the the burden of cost to conventional food providers, requiring a federal certification to be labeled as non-GMO… HR 1599 clearly flies in the face of polls6 showing that 94 percent of Americans think GMO labeling should be mandatory, which makes it even more obvious that our political system has become corrupted to the core.”

Fogh-of-WarUS-NATO Military Deployments, Economic Warfare, Goldman Sachs and the Next Financial Meltdown – Is There a Relationship? – by Prof Michel Chossudovsky, GlobalResearch.ca – “Amply documented, the mega-banking institutions on Wall Street and their related hedge funds exert their influence at the highest levels of the US government including the State Department, the Pentagon and the White House… The system of cross-appointments together with corporate lobbying is part of this process.  National security advisers and former Pentagon officials are appointed to the World Bank,  etc.  Former prime ministers, senior government officials take on consulting positions with major banking institutions,  CIA officials are involved as advisers in key trade negotiations, etc. Conversely, Wall Street bankers are appointed to key positions in government… In early August, Goldman Sachs appointed NATO’s former Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen as a financial consultant.”

Homeowner Fined $25,000 For Renting Out Home On Mobile App (AirBbB), Without A Permit – by Dorian Hargrove, GovtSlaves.info – “In February 2015, new regulations were posted on the city’s website notifying AirBnB hosts that they are required to pay transient occupancy taxes and other taxes. There was also mention that some hosts may need to obtain city permits to rent out rooms on home-sharing apps, a long and tedious process, as reported by the Voice of San Diego. Before that, however, there was little information from the city on the requirements for home-sharing. Currently, several hundred homeowners rent rooms or their home on AirBnB as well as other similar websites. None, as of now, have obtained permits, leaving all at risk for hefty fines.”

Geologist predicted EPA would intentionally pollute Animas River to secure federal funding – by J. D. Heyes, NaturalNews.com – “…days before the incident, retired geologist Dave Taylor wrote to the editors of the Silverton Standard & the Miner newspaper that he believed there would be an intentional breach with ulterior motives behind it… ‘Based on my 47 years of experience as a professional geologist,’ Taylor wrote, ‘it appears to me that the EPA is setting your town and the area up for a possible Superfund blitzkrieg.’.. Taylor references a June meeting between the newspaper’s editors and a representative from the EPA, who reportedly told them ‘we don’t have an agenda’ – meaning the agency – a statement which Taylor described as ‘either ignorant naivety or an outright falsehood.’.. He went on to lay out ‘the scenario that will occur based on my experience,’ in which he says that, after the plugging of the breached dam, exfiltrating water will be retained behind the ramparts, ‘accumulating at a rate of approximately 500 gallons per minute.’.. In the long run, he believes the “grand experiment” of essentially putting a cork back in the bottle will “fail.” Then, he believes, the EPA will come back and say that, since its plan failed, ‘we will have to build a treatment plant at a cost to taxpayers’ of hundreds of millions of dollars… ‘Reading between the lines, I believe that has been the EPA’s plan all along…’ ”

Marvin_HearndonCoal Fly Ash Used In Chemtrail Aerosols: Geophysicist Produces Conclusive Evidence – from StateOfTheNation2012.com – “Marvin Herndon is no ordinary geophysicist… It is his extraordinarily diverse background, deep and broad knowledge base, as well as unique skill set which distinguishes him from his peers… Two Test Methods Were Used That Produced Almost Identical Results: The results of two different test methods, both of which compared the composition of the aerosolized particulates with the known elements from coal fly ash, were not just compelling, they were overwhelming similar.  That virtually identical results were arrived at provides an excellent legal basis for class action suits to proceed successfully.  Both individuals and families, communities and businesses, which have been injured by ongoing geoengineering operations, now have sufficient scientific evidence to sue the government for both compensatory and punitive damages.”

Erdogan’s constitution ambitions refuse to fade – from PressTV.ir – ““There is a president with de facto power in the country (ME!), not a symbolic one. The president should conduct his duties for the nation directly, but within his authority. Whether one accepts it or not, Turkey’s administrative system has changed,” Erdogan said in the Black Sea province of Rize on Friday, AFP reported… ‘Now, what should be done is to update this de facto situation in the legal framework of the constitution,’ he added… He also described the Justice and Development Party (AKP) as a ‘symbol of honesty.’ ”

Self-DriverWhy a Future Ride in a Self-Driving Car Could Be a Trip to Advertising Hell – Self-driving cars are a marketer’s dream come true, and a possible nightmare for passengers – by Eric C. Evarts, Alternet.org “Ubiquitous driverless taxis are the end game for all these efforts. Such a system could threaten not only taxis and ride-sharing services, it could disrupt the entire transportation industry and even the very roots of the American car ownership model. If you can summon a car to whisk you anywhere you want, any time, why buy one that will sit in your driveway for most of the week?.. The promise is that passengers could work, play games, watch movies, or even drink alcohol in the car. Along the way, the ad for the Cheesecake Factory could appear in the Netflix show you’re watching, and if you click on it, Netflix could place your order and the car would drive you to pick it up. The Cheesecake Factory, Netflix, Google, the automaker, and the Sprint or AT&T communication service provider could all shave off a slice of revenue from your transaction.”

Pipelineistan — the Iran-Pak-China Connection – by Pepe Escobar – “This is a major Pipelinestan gambit, as Asia Times has previously reported. And as a side note, as soon as IP goes online, all those years of incessant harassing by successive Bush and Obama administrations will finally come down to nought… Even before Zarif hit Pakistan something serious was going on in … Karamay. You may have not heard of Karamay, but this town in Xinjiang is right at the center of the Eurasian action; it has just hosted the 2015 China-Pakistan Economic Corridor Forum… As we all know, the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) is an absolutely key component, worth $46 billion, of the China-driven New Silk Roads. CPEC will link Kashgar in Xinjiang to the Arabian Sea port of Gwadar via highways (essentially an upgrade of the fabled Karakoram Highway), railways, industrial parks, fiber optic networks and – eventually – a pipeline… And that pipeline will be no less than an extension up north of IP.”

Catherine_Austin_FittsUS Military Uses IMF and World Bank to Launder 85% of Its Black Budgetby Jake Anderson, ActivistPost.com – “However, of greater interest to some may be the clandestine nature and full scope of the black budget, which, according to analyst Catherine Austin Fitts, goes far beyond classified appropriations. Based on her research, some of which can be found in her piece “What’s Up With the Black Budget?” Fitts concludes that the during the last decade, global financial elites have configured an elaborate system that makes most of the military budget unauditable. This is because the real black budget includes money acquired by intelligence groups via narcotics trafficking, predatory lending, and various kinds of other financial fraud… Fitts has been researching this issue since 2001, when she began to believe that a financial coup d’etat was underway. Specifically, she suspected that the banks, corporations, and investors acting in each global region were part of a “global heist,” whereby capital was being sucked out of each country. She was right.”

‘Tis an Illiquidity that Blows No Good – by Alfred Adask, Adask.wordpress.com – “Q:  Why can’t people easily sell their investments during a time of “low liquidity”?.. A:  Because the potential buyers prefer to hold their cash rather than buy that particular investment…  Q:  Why do potential buyers prefer to hold their cash?.. A:  Because the value and purchasing power of their cash is rising…  Q:  Is there a commonly-understood, economic term that signifies circumstances when the purchasing power of cash is rising?.. A:  Yes—“deflation”… Implication:  “Low liquidity” and “illiquidity” are simply esoteric terms used to describe periods of deflation… “Deflation” is usually a characteristic of an economic downturn, recession or, especially, a depression… It follows that periods of “illiquidity” are consistent with deflation and economic depression.”

Obama Administration building personal info database to divide Americans by race – by J. D. Heyes, NaturalNews.com – “As reported by Hoover Institute Media Fellow Paul Sperry, writing in the New York Post recently, the effort will become part of Obama’s legacy: It amounts to the federal government’s unprecedented collection of sensitive data on Americans by race, with the end goal being ‘racial and economic justice.’.. What’s more, Sperry notes, this extraordinary data collection is being done without most Americans’ knowledge (or consent). In particular, administration racial analysts are mining and amassing personal data related to health, home loans, credit cards, places of employment, neighborhoods and even the manner in which children in schools are disciplined – all in an effort to document “inequalities” between minorities and whites… The centerpiece, if you will, of the Obama-led initiative is a database known as Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing, which was built by HUD and was introduced in early July. The purpose is to “racially balance the nation, ZIP code by ZIP code,” Sperry writes. The database will literally map every U.S. neighborhood using four racial groups – white, Asian, Hispanic/Latino or black/African-American – and then publish “geospatial data” showing racial imbalances.”

Patrick_Roddie-at-EPA(San Francisco) Geoengineering Activist Patrick Roddie Testifies Before the EPA (w/Video – 10 min) – by Peter A. Kirby, ActivistPost.com – “This last Tuesday, August 11, a group of geoengineering activists including San Francisco’s intrepid researcher and citizen journalist Patrick Roddie testified before the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Patrick went on record about the hard evidence showing the mountains of metal raining down upon us and this Project’s massive environmental fallout. They don’t have any excuses now. They have been informed. The EPA is now legally bound to DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS. If they don’t, THEY MAY BE PROSECUTED. Joining Mr. Roddie are testifying activists: Jim Lee, Amanda Bayes and Max Bliss. Here is Patrick’s testimony…”

Open Letter From Paris Climate Change Conference Participant Sounds The Alarm – Upcoming Global Climate Change Agreement Ignores Geoengineering, Precursor To One World Government – Activist Michael Murphy Warns About Draconian Climate Change Legislation In The Works – from StateOfTheNation2012.com – “Dear Fellow Chemtrail/Geoengineering Activists, I am writing to share what I have learned, as well as express my concerns, after attending the ‘Our Common Future Under Climate Change’ in Paris, France last week. This meeting was the precursor to a global climate agreement and global government which, if allowed to form, will essentially become a carbon dictatorship whereby every aspect of our lives will be controlled by the corporate/governmental complex. The planned signing of this global climate agreement is scheduled to occur this coming December in Paris. Upon further reflection on this past meeting, it is now clear that there is a direct correlation between geoengineering and the climate change agendas. I now believe this to be the most important time and focus of our activism.”

“Homegrown Terrorists”: New US Draconian Laws Usher in the New World Order – by Joachim Hagopian, GlobalResearch.ca – “Another highly revealing, equally disturbing eye opener is news of the Pentagon’s recently released Law of War Manual calling for open season on journalists as belligerents and enemies of the state. Apparently the US killing machine in its wanton lust for war crime atrocities no longer feels comfortable embedding even the MSM presstitutes for either Jade Helm or future military conflicts around the world. Now journalists are declared the unwanted enemy, particularly those from independent news outlets bent on exposing Empire evildoing… The 1165-page new laws of war manual give license to kill civilians with no pretense of concern as “collateral damage” anymore. Now they too are the apparent enemy lurking in every country where black ops are fighting, currently active in upwards of near three quarters of the earth’s nations. Human life on this planet in the twenty-first century under the already here and now New World Order is the US military’s latest enemy target. After all, we’re all casualties in this globalist genocidal war against humanity.”

Broccoli_PlantVegetable Extract Treats Autism Better Than Drugs – by Sayer Ji, GreenMedInfo.com – “Dietary sulforaphane, of recognized low toxicity, was selected for its capacity to reverse abnormalities that have been associated with ASD, including oxidative stress and lower antioxidant capacity, depressed glutathione synthesis, reduced mitochondrial function and oxidative phosphorylation, increased lipid peroxidation, and neuroinflammmation… ‘Of all the natural substances we have reviewed with potential value in the treatment of ASD, sulforaphane, a molecule found in cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cabbage and Brussels sprouts, is perhaps the most promising candidate.’ “

An OPEN LETTER To Pope Francis Regarding Global Climate Change – The Geoengineering Component of Global Climate Change MUST be Acknowledged and Eliminated – by Concerned Residents of Planet Earth, TheMilleniumReport.com – “Which brings us to the urgent purpose of this open letter.  According to hard scientific evidence, some of which has been submitted to Governor Jerry Brown of California, it appears that the regular IPCC research and reporting on this matter has ignored a major component of GCC.  As the subject title of this letter indicates, that component is GEOENGINEERING.  In fact, there are those GCC investigators who now assert that geoengineering may be the primary anthropogenic component of Global Climate Change, not CO2… …only when the true root causes of GCC have been scientifically proven and received a sufficient consensus, should they be used to formulate an official response.  However, all of the most essential conclusions must be first acknowledged and agreed upon by the world community of nations.  Only when the profound and pervasive causes of GCC, such as the now ubiquitous geoengineering program utilizing chemtrails, are eliminated by every reasonable means necessary will the planet move in the right direction.”

Julius_CorleyAdult Medical Kidnapping in New York: 1950s Air Force Veteran Held Hostage in Hospital – from HealthImpactNews.com – “The family sat quietly in the waiting area until after visiting hours, wondering why the release was taking so long… ‘They told us the risks of taking him home. Risks were: may not get medication and could fall on floor and die. My mother, also his Health Proxy and POA, was allowed to sign the AMA form in front of the attending physician, Vijay Khatiwala and the director of Hospital Medicine, Andrea Porrovecchio and told (us) she was waiting for a discharge summary until 4 hours later the medical director, Purvi D. Shah, along with Montefiore Hospital police, came and said that he can’t leave and that his removal would be illegal. Purvi Shah, along with security and fellow staff blocked us from vacating with him.’ -Grandson Laredo Regular… Since June 1, 2015, Laredo and his mother have been trying to get someone to help them remove Julius from Montefiore Wakefield Hospital… Laredo also tells us that the Attending Physician refuses to give the family and legal guardians any printed descriptions of the medications or treatments they are giving him.” (emph. added)

Kurdish villagers under fire in PKK-controlled Iraq say Turkey is ‘no different from Isis’– by Cathy Otten, Independent.co.uk – “Dilzar Mustafa, 29, who lives in a town near Zargali, said he heard the bombing raids in the early hours of Saturday morning… ‘We saw smoke rising from the village,’he told The Independent. ‘When we arrived we saw total mess and destruction. I saw several dead bodies and houses that were destroyed, including the village’s mosque that was partly damaged.’.. Turkey began air strikes against Isis in Syria and the PKK, which is also one of the main forces battling Isis on the ground in northern Iraq, alongside its Kurdish sister group, the People’s Protection Units (YPG) in Syria, on 24 July… PKK spokesman Zagros Hiwa told The Independent that the air attacks, of which there are estimated to have been hundreds so far, had “unilaterally and practically ended the peace process” between Turkey and the PKK. He described the strikes as an effort to weaken the PKK under the cover of fighting Isis, whom the PKK accuse Turkey of aiding.”

3-Eurasian-AmigosThe Imperial Designs on Iran The Masters of the Universe seem to believe that the “pivot to Asia” won’t work if Iran is not part, as a vassal state, of the imperial design for Southwest Asia. Well, listen to Khamenei; that won’t happen. – by Pepe Escobar, VeteransNewsNow.com – “Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif has been extra busy “selling” the deal with the P5+1 in Vienna to internal public opinion. He never tires to stress that once foreign businesses enter Iran, they will act as a barrier against the reinstatement of sanctions – which is now the Holy Grail of US neocons and neoliberalcons. Iranian planners are busy drafting the pathways for the reconstruction of the country’s core economic sectors. Iranian oil and natural gas projects – many with input from foreign energy majors – may be worth $185 billion by 2020… On July 20, the UN Security Council unanimously (15-0) endorsed the Vienna deal — and the termination of seven UN resolutions imposing sanctions on Iran since 2006. That provoked shrieks of desperation in that nest of corporate paperboys – the US Congress. Someone should have explained to that lot this is an international deal.”

Greek_NosediveGreek stock exchange plummets 23% as it reopens after 5-week closure – from RT.com – “However, some limitations for market trading were kept in place. Greek traders are able to buy stocks, bonds and other financial instruments only through new acquisitions, such as remittances from abroad or contributions from customers, as well as proceeds from the sale of shares or withdrawal from the investment accounts in brokerage companies in Greece, Greece’s Finance Ministry said Monday. This comes along with the continuation of the restrictions on capital movement. Restrictions are not applied to foreign investors operating on the Greek market before the trading suspension in June, the ministry added… ‘The situation in Greek equity markets will have to get a lot worse before it gets better,’ Luca Paolini, Pictet Asset Management’s chief strategist in London, told Bloomberg News. ‘There are still critical risks to be resolved.’ ”

Greek ex-finance minister warns Spain of Greece’s fate – from PressTV.ir – “The former Greek minister made the remarks during an interview with the Spanish daily El Pais, published on Sunday… ‘The danger of becoming Greece is always there and it will become reality if the same mistakes that were imposed on Greece are repeated,’ Varoufakis said… He called on Spaniards to evaluate their country’s needs after looking at ‘their own economic and social situation.’.. The warning by Varoufakis came following Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy’s recent move to cite the financial crisis in Greece in order to promote the Spanish government’s crisis management plan before key general elections expected to be held by the end of the year.”

German_march-Press_FreedomOver 2,000 march in Berlin to support journalists accused of ‘treason’ for leak – from PressTV.ir – “Hundreds of protestors came out in Berlin on Saturday to show their support for two journalists from a German news website that were accused of state treason for leaking information on online surveillance… The two bloggers, Markus Beckedahl and Andre Meister from the prominent Netzpolitik.org news website, had been under investigation for quoting an intelligence report on the expansion of a national online snooping program. But, for now, the probe has been suspended for “the greater good” of protecting freedom of the press… Demonstrators walked from the central Friedrichstrasse district to the Justice Ministry, carrying signs bearing the slogan: “For fundamental rights and freedom of the press.” Signs with messages such as “RIP democracy,”“Fight for your digital rights,” and “Treason? Whoever reacts with such panic, surely has too much to hide!” were also seen.”

Z-Berg-VirtualVirtual reality is next mass trend – Facebook’s Zuckerberg – from RINF.com – “This is where a company, Oculus VR, known for making virtual reality glasses and acquired last year for $2 billion, comes in handy. The idea is to use those glasses to “teleport” users though a Facebook post into a different place, enabling them to experience the joy of a big event they couldn’t attend. One example of these “new experiences” is a birthday party or a child’s first bike ride that could be shared on Facebook, so that users from various parts of the world felt as if they were there… Zuckerberg promised that soon the technology would be so advanced it would give us a so-called “sense of presence.” During a Q&A session on his Facebook page a month ago, he said that ‘in the future we’ll probably still carry phones in our pockets, but I think we’ll also have glasses on our faces that can help us out throughout the day and give us the ability to share our experiences with those we love in completely immersive and new ways that aren’t possible today.’ ”

Venezuela Increasingly Looks Like A War Zone – by Tyler Durden, ZeroHedge.com – “Over the years, we have repeatedly poked fun at the transformation of Venezuela into a “socialist utopia” – an economy in a state of terminal collapse, where the destruction of the currency (one black market Bolivar is now worth 107 times less than the official currency’s exchange rate) and the resulting hyperinflation is only matched be barren wasteland that local stores have transformed into now that conventional supply chains are irreparably broken… That is precisely what the video shown below has captured. In the clip, a demonstration against Venezuela’s poor transportation services quickly turned violent. End result: one person dead from a gunshot wound, more than 80 arrested and four shops looted on the Manuel Piar Avenue in San Felix… What is most distrubing is how comparable to an open war zone what was once a vibrant, rich and beautiful Latin American country has become… This is just the beginning: with the ongoing collapse of the economy, the resultant acts of social violence will only deteriorate and claim more innocent lives, until the “socialist utopia” ends as it always does: with the arrival of a military coup or a full blown civil war.”

iran-iraq-heat-July302015Scorching ‘heat dome’ over Middle East sees temperatures soar to 165F in Iran – Iran is enduring a “heat index” of nearly 72C while Iraq has called a public holiday due to the sweltering temperatures – by James Rothwell, Telegraph.co.uk – ” But the word “hot” has taken on an entirely new meaning in Iran’s city of Bandar Mahshahr, where it was claimed that the city’s heat index, or “feels-like temperature”, was among the highest ever recorded… The heat index was recorded by a group of astonished weather experts who predict the country could be enduring some of the hottest urban temperatures ever endured by mankind… ‘That was one of the most incredible temperature observations I have ever seen and it is one of the most extreme readings ever in the world,’ said AccuWeather meteorologist Anthony Saglia. ” – Can we say “Weather Warfare?”

Rhode Island mandates HPV vaccine for seventh-graders – from AP via TurnTo10.com – “Starting this fall, seventh-graders who do not get the vaccine will not be allowed to attend school unless their parents seek an exemption for medical or religious reasons, the Providence Journal reported Tuesday… Tricia Washburn, chief of the office of immunization for the Rhode Island Department of Health, said the Centers for Disease Control found no safety concerns with the vaccine… “The bottom line is that HPV is the most sexually transmitted disease in the U.S.(OMG- the Rhode Island chief of immunization can’t formulate a sentence!) she said. We are interested in protecting the public health. We feel it shouldn’t be treated any differently than any of the other vaccines recommended by the CDC.’.. She said the Department of Health mandated the vaccine, unlike most states, because Rhode Island incorporates all CDC-recommended vaccines into the state’s school immunization regulations. Rhode Island joins Virginia and Washington, D.C. in requiring the vaccine.” (emph. added)Note: pure evil actions are emerging before our eyes.


Health insurers seek huge price increases as ‘affordable’ Obamacare coverage exposed as yet another government price-gouging scam – by J. D. Heyes, NaturalNews.com – “Tens of millions of Americans have also seen their insurance deductibles skyrocket as well – many have become so high that customers have to delay care. Deductibles as high as $6,000 a year per family member are not uncommon… But as bad as all of this sounds, it is about to get worse – much worse… Under provisions of federal law, insurance companies are required to file rate increase requests a full year before they can implement them. Even then, state regulatory agencies must approve the increases… Because new enrollees under Obamacare have been much sicker than insurance companies anticipated, they are requesting even higher rate increases for 2016. As reported by The New York Times, this year’s requests range between 20 and 40 percent…”

Sapin-Shauble-fingersFrance calls Germany’s Grexit proposal ‘unrealistic’ – from PressTV.ir – ” ‘I think Mr Schäuble is wrong and even contradicting his own deep European commitment,’ the French minister said in an interview to be published Monday in the German business daily Handelsblatt, excerpts of which were released Sunday, AFP reported… Allowing a country to temporarily leave the single currency bloc signifies that others can get out of trouble by readjustment of the euro, Sapin further said, adding that Schäuble was “not realistic” in his remarks… The French minister said difficulties should be resolved through structural reforms rather than manipulating the exchange rate.”

Forced vaccinations part of HHS’s Healthy People 2020 ‘Decade of Vaccines’ agenda – by Jonathan Benson, NaturalNews.com – “In addition to this forced use of taxpayer dollars to fund the development and sale of vaccines, the Decade of Vaccines is also focused on pushing more vaccine propaganda on both healthcare providers and consumers. Here are the five goals of the National Vaccine Implementation Plan, which was developed in conjunction with Healthy People: 1) Develop new and improved vaccines, 2) Enhance the vaccine safety program, 3) Support improved “communication” to enhance informed vaccine decision-making, 4) Ensure a stable supply of, access to and better use of recommended vaccines, 5) Increase global prevention through vaccines… The only way such goals can be achieved, of course, is through compulsion and the elimination of vaccine exemptions, which is what we’re currently seeing in the national debate. A report by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation entitled Outbreaks: Protecting Americans from Infectious Diseases admits this when it states that one of the ways to increase vaccination rates is to ‘minimize vaccine exemptions.’(emph. added)

John_HouserLafayette Shooting: Echoes of Theatrical Mass-Killings & Emergency Drills – by Shawn Helton, 21stCenturyWire.com – “Accounts of the incident believe that 25 people were in the theater at the time of the shooting. Early reports of the shooting, stated that as many as 100 were at the screening. Other reports say there were 300 people “fleeing”. According to The Daily Advertiser in Lafayette, another eyewitness, Katie Domingue said, ‘He wasn’t saying anything.’ And that ‘I didn’t hear anybody screaming either.’.. “We also pause and remember and continue praying for the recovery of nine other individuals who were wounded in that horrible incident: I mentioned Matthew Rodriguez, the boyfriend of Mayci Breaux; Morgan Julia Egedahl; Dwight “Bo” Ramsey and his wife Jerry – cousins of Congressman Boustany, by the way, and good friends of mine and Senator Cassidy’s; Ali Viator Martin, an English teacher at Jeanerette Senior High School, and Jena Legnon Meaux, whom I mentioned as true heroes in this incident.” -U.S. Congressional Record, 7/27/2015 (!)Another important observation made when looking at the various people linked to this shooting, was that Acadian Ambulance was a contributor ($16,500) to Boustany’s election campaign. Additionally, Boustany (a former cardiovascular surgeon) received $367,850 from undisclosed health professionals, along with $131,740 from health services and 118,800 contributed from pharmaceutical companies.”

TPP Ministerial Deadlock.”Good News for People on the Planet”– Worldwide Opposition to Trade Deal – by Stephen Lendman, GlobalResearch.ca – “The Financial Times called failure in Maui a ‘major blow…potentially complicating further the politics of an already controversial project.’.. Days of Maui ministerial discussions were billed as a final negotiating round. Lots of disagreements remain – including market access for dairy products, autos and sugar, intellectual property rules, patents on pharmaceuticals and environmental concerns… After five years of on-and-off negotiations, much remains unresolved. US Trade Representative Michael Froman put on a brave face saying ‘(w)e are more confident than ever that TPP is within reach.’ ” – Why should the “US Trade Rep” be in favor of this attack on Americans? Just askin’.

From the Evil-Empire Desk: British SAS Special Forces “Dressed Up as ISIS Rebels” Fighting Assad in Syria – by Stephen Lendman, InformationClearingHouse.info – “On August 2, Britain’s Sunday Express newspaper headlined “SAS dress as ISIS fighters in undercover war on jihadis,” saying: ‘More than 120 members belonging to the elite regiment are currently in the war-torn country” covertly “dressed in black and flying ISIS flags,’ engaged in what’s called Operation Shader – attacking Syrian targets on the pretext of combatting ISIS… Maybe covert US special forces and CIA elements are involved the same way. During Obama’s war on Libya, Britain deployed hundreds of Special Forces Support Group (SFSG) paratroopers – drawn from SAS (Special Air Service) and SBS (Special Boat Service) personnel.”

Russian_ParatroopersRussia Ready To Send Paratroopers To Syria – by Tyler Durden, ZeroHedge.com – “ISIS will remain in play as long as they are necessary, but once the time comes for the US to clean up the mess left by Syria’s three-front war once and for all, that will be all she wrote for this particular CIA asset. Until then, everyone apparently gets to use Islamic State as an excuse to pursue their own political agenda, as evidenced by Turkey’s new war on “terrorists.” Not wanting to miss an opportunity to justify what would otherwise be a rather brash declaration, Russia is reportedly ready to send in the paratroopers should Syria request Moscow’s help in battling terrorist elements. Here’s more via Tass: ‘The Russian Airborne Troops are ready to assist Syria in countering terrorists, if such a task is set by Russia’s leaders,’ commander of the Airborne Troops Colonel-General Vladimir Shamanov told reporters on Tuesday… ‘Of course we will execute the decisions set forth by the country’s leadership, if there is a task at hand,’ Shamanov said, in response to a Syrian reporter’s question about the readiness of the Russian Airborne Troops to render assistance to Syria’s government in its battle against terrorism.”

Democrat Think Tank Proposes Breaking Syria up Into “Autonomous Zones” – Neocon inspired plan floated prior to Obama’s invasion – by Kurt Nimmo, PrisonPlanet.com – “Michael E. O’Hanlon, who supported the invasion of Iraq and teamed up with the neocon think tank Project for the New American Century during the occupation, describes how Syrian sovereignty would be eviscerated: ‘The idea would be to help moderate elements establish reliable safe zones within Syria once they were able. American, as well as Saudi and Turkish and British and Jordanian and other Arab forces would act in support, not only from the air but eventually on the ground via special forces. The approach would benefit from Syria’s open desert terrain which could allow creation of buffer zones that could be monitored for possible signs of enemy attack. Western forces themselves would remain in more secure positions in general—within the safe zones but back from the front lines—at least until the reliability of such defenses, and also local allied forces, made it practical to deploy and live in more forward locations.’.. Even the pro-war establishment media realizes there is no such thing as “moderate elements” fighting against the government of Bashar al-Assad. (emph. added)

NASHVILLE THEATER SHOOTING: Alleged Gunman With Hatchet, Found Strapped To ‘Hoax Explosive Device’ – Welcome to this week’s installment of the “Daily Shooter,” another episode tailormade for American audiences…- by Shawn Helton, 21stCenturyWire.com – ” ‘After the incident, police discovered two suspicious backpacks: One on the suspect and one left in the theater. By 4 p.m., they had detonated one of the bags. Police determined the bag strapped to the suspect’s chest contained a hoax explosive device… A second bag, found inside the theater, had yet to be detonated. A bomb squad is on the scene.’.. Many critics of these types of events, have long asserted that ‘crisis actors’ are often used during police active-shooter drills and that at any moment those events could go live… The idea that staged recreations of a shooting scenarios  “improve response times and inter-agency organization” is not much better than ‘hair-trigger’ video game culture we live in. The new ‘shoot first’ methodology we see in today’s law enforcement operations – pushes the public into accepting new “rules of engagement” based on new, fear-based ‘anti-government’ profiling… Over the next 24 hours, you will see the media, along with those others at the scene, turn this incident into a PR packed event with new mental health proposals and predictable tales for heroism.”

Catalonia Calls Election in New Bid for Secession From Spain – by Raphael Minder, NYTimes.com – “If nothing else, the quick return of the issue has demonstrated that while an independence referendum may have been previously blocked by Madrid, the grievances that animate Catalonia’s secessionist drive have yet to be addressed… Those grievances have long included a mix of Catalonia’s distinctive language and identity as well as complaints that the region, one of the richest in the country, has been economically squeezed to subsidize poorer parts of Spain… The pro-independence coalition in Catalonia, which calls itself Together for Yes, while not unanimous, is broad enough to present a credible threat.”

Israel_ShamirA Cold Summer for Europe – by Israel Shamir, VeteransNewsNow.com – “The parties of the left and of the right are now quite similar. Europe has neither true Left nor true Right anymore. The pseudo-Left supports imperialist wars and unmans the man. The pseudo-Right supports imperialist wars and cuts taxes for the wealthy. It was more fun with the traditional parties, with the Right hating financiers, supporting tradition, church, and family, and the Left fighting the bourgeoisie, caring for workers, and aiming for social justice… In Douglas Adams’ words, “men were real men, women were real women and small furry creatures from Alpha Centauri were real small furry creatures from Alpha Centauri.” Now they all promote women to the boards of multinationals, compete for Jewish donations and argue who is better for the gays… In important questions, they are same-same, as my Chinese landlady used to shrill. Both left and right stands for more immigration, though the left explains that by humanitarian reasons and by anti-racism, while the right looks for a cheap work force to keep native workers obedient. The bottom line is the same.”

US Invasion of Syria: The Deep Breath Before the Plunge – by Tony Cartalucci, ActivistPost.com – “In reality the latest pretext, ISIS, was created and to this day perpetuated by US, Saudi, Israeli, Jordanian, and Turkish support. ISIS is incapable of sourcing the weapons, cash, and fighters within Syria and Iraq alone, and admittedly receives the vast majority of all three from abroad. In Turkey alone, hundreds of trucks a day pass by Turkish border checkpoints destined for ISIS territory in Syria and Iraq. So overt are these supply convoys that a Deutsche Welle’s camera crew spent a day filming them and interviewing locals describing the daily torrent feeding state-sponsored terrorism just across the border in northern Syria.”

7 Key Measures of California’s Transportation Challenges – by California State Senator John Moorlach, 37th District, FoxAndHoundsDaily.com – “According to the State of California, Department of Transportation, Division of Budgets, 2014/2015 Fiscal Year estimates, the State brings in at least $10.6 billion in taxes and fees “dedicated to transportation purposes.”.. Caltrans spends just 20% of that revenue on state road repair & new construction… Last year, Caltrans spent $1.2 billion in state road maintenance & repair, and $850 million in new construction.  Similar amounts are planned for the 2015/2016 CA State budget.

Holocaustianity on the march – by Brandon Martinez, VeteransNewsNow.com – “When perusing YouTube last night, I came across a curious episode of the BBC debate show “The Big Questions.”.. The topic of this one was “Is it time to lay the Holocaust to rest?” It featured a coterie of Zionist Jews on one end and a dilapidated kosher-opposition on the other who shuddered in fear of the aggressive, hubristic Judeo-Nazis arguing that the “Holocaust” should be memorialized and commemorated until the end of time. To those in-the-know on the Jewish question, this show will inevitably produce one of two effects: it will either make you vomit out of disgust at the insane narcissism of the Jewish participants, or it will cause you to seethe with anger that such obviously demented people are given such a prominent voice in the media to promote their toxic supremacist viewpoints… The Jewish panelists on the show endeavored to convince everyone that the “Holocaust” is a “unique” and “exceptional” event in history that has no equivalents.”

Jim_Crow-LevantTake It Down: US Support for Jim Crow Israel – Struggle Over Substance, Not Symbols – by Dan Sanchez, Anti-War.com – “For example, the recent Jacobin surge to purge every Confederate flag flying over American soil represents the latest march of the symbol-minded. After all, what could be more simple-minded than the notion that imposing the removal of a particular color pattern is a victory for the cause of justice?.. Israel’s Jim Crow character has been accentuated by the recent hard-right turn taken by its political class as well as its broader culture. The rise of the extreme right in Israel has been meticulously documented by the heroic Max Blumenthal in his indispensable book Goliath: Life and Loathing in Greater Israel… The clearest manifestation of this shift was the rise to power of the Likud Party and the second premiership of Benjamin Netanyahu beginning in 2009. But perhaps just as important was the attendant rise of the even more populist and ultra-nationalist Yisrael Beiteinu party under Avigdor Lieberman as a key junior partner in the Likud-led ruling coalition. Blumenthal wrote: ‘With Lieberman’s party serving as the linchpin of this right-wing coalition government, and with Likud’s old guard overwhelmed by younger zealots, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu came down firmly on the side of the party’s hardline future.’.. This has resulted in what one Israeli politician called, “the most right-wing government in Israel’s history…”

The War on Conspiracy Realists Continues – British government under Cameron’s watch has been an active and willing partner in the Machiavellian strategy of divide and rule in the Middle East spearheaded by the US and Israel. – by Brandon Martinez, VeteransNewsNow.com – “Award winning reporter Seymour Hersh revealed in a 2007 report titled “The Redirection” that the Bush administration launched a joint covert operation with Israel and Saudi Arabia to augment “Sunni extremist groups” and other fanatics to weaken the influence of Syria, Iran and Hezbollah… Part of the arrangement, Hersh explained, was a guarantee from the Saudis that Israel’s security interests would be safeguarded, which clarifies why ISIS and its affiliates have not attacked Israel despite the country’s close proximity to the terrorists’ strongholds in Syria and Iraq. ‘Israel would be assured that its security was paramount and that Washington and Saudi Arabia and other Sunni states shared its concern about Iran,’ Hersh noted was the first point in a series of “informal understandings about their new strategic direction” to combat Shiite influence led by Iran… Israeli officials have expressed similar sentiments, with Israel’s former envoy to the US, Michael Oren, stating in a September 2013 interview that Tel Aviv “prefers” ISIS and al-Qaeda over the “bad guys backed by Iran,” namely Syria’s Assad and Hezbollah… Oren forthrightly conceded that Israel is committed to defeating through terrorist violence ‘the strategic arc that extends from Tehran, to Damascus to Beirut’ with Assad in Syria functioning as the ‘keystone in that arc.’ ‘That is a position we had well before the outbreak of hostilities in Syria,’ Oren told the Jerusalem Post. ‘With the outbreak of hostilities we continued to want Assad to go.’.. The unholy alliance between Israel and the Salafist jihadists came right out in the open inJune 2015 when ISIS released a video threatening to topple Hamas in Gaza, promising to bring bloodshed and ruin to the Strip. Salafist elements tied to ISIS have in fact attacked Hamas havens in Gaza on multiple occasions over the past few months, showcasing their utility as pawns of Israel.”

Elissa_Maple18 Year Old Massachusetts Girl Medically Kidnapped & Abused Now Fights Adult Protective Services to Remain Free – from HealthImpactNews.com – “Although Elissa was released under her own recognizance from DCF on her 18th birthday, Adult Protection Services continues to track her movements while allegedly taunting her and her mother with threats of Elissa having to be placed in an adult group home in Vermont. Franklin County DCF continually fails to relinquish custody of Elissa, says her mother, even after the judge released her on her 18th birthday. When the Vermont judge released Elissa, Vermont’s Franklin County DCF swooped in and placed her back into the system as an adult claiming responsibility for Elissa’s education and health… When Karen Maple asked Franklin County why they still retained custodial rights to Elissa’s records since she’s been released, she stated she was told that DCF: ‘Just hadn’t gotten around to doing the paper work, but we hoped Elissa would sign the papers and return to our care as an adult. We didn’t get around to transitioning her, so why don’t you just let us keep her for another year?’.. Karen’s plea is for her daughter to be left alone. She believes Elissa has been through enough turmoil hidden under the guise of institutional assistance: ‘We are safe and surrounded by family and good neighbors. Just leave her alone.”

Syria’s Assad Says Army Faces Manpower Shortfall But Vows To Win War – from Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty via GlobalSecurity.org – “In a televised speech, Assad said on July 26 that ‘there is a lack of human resources’ in the army ‘but that doesn’t mean we can talk about collapse.’.. Assad said the army had to give up some areas of Syria due to military priorities… He said that ‘it was necessary to specify critical areas for our armed forces to hang on to. Concern for our soldiers forces us to let go of some areas.’ “

How Medical Marijuana’s Chemicals May Protect Cells – by David Noonan, ScientificAmerican.com – “Recent research suggests that THC might also protect neurons from trauma. Early test-tube studies pointed to this effect, and so has one clinical trial published last October. In it, trauma surgeon David Plurad and his colleagues did a retrospective review of 446 traumatic brain injury (TBI) cases treated at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center from January 2010 through December 2012. Their study, reported in the journal American Surgeon, found that 82 of those patients tested positive for THC and two of them died, for a mortality rate of 2.4 percent. The mortality rate among the 364 patients who did not have THC in their system was 11.5 percent, nearly five times higher. After taking into account other factors, such as age, severity of injury and blood alcohol level, the researchers concluded that the link between THC and a lower death rate in these patients stood up. Although the mechanisms are not fully understood, previous research suggests that both THC and cannabidiol may increase blood flow in the brain, bringing needed oxygen as well as nutrients to endangered neurons. Because they inhibit glutamate, they may also prevent toxic effects that occur after brain trauma, when neurons can get overstimulated by the neurotransmitter.”

David_Stockman-of-OMBWall Street Still Didn’t Get The Memo—–China’s Done, Tops In! – by David Stockman, DavidStockmansContraCorner.com – “But today’s Wall Street admonition to move along because there is nothing to see in the plunging red bourses really takes the cake. In fact, yesterday’s 8.5% plunge on the Shanghai market—–mostly in the last hour and in the face of $1 trillion of state buying power and several thousand paddy wagons thrown at sellers, malicious or otherwise—-is merely a foreshock; it’s a fateful warning about the global-scale financial temblors heading at the incorrigible army of dip buyers in New York, London and their farm teams elsewhere… In the first place, upwards of 90 million households are in the Chinese stock market, most of them buried under margin debt. Among them, they hold exactly 258 million trading accounts and a significant fraction of these were opened in just the past year by Chinese pig farmers, bus drivers and banana vendors, among millions of quasi-literate others… profits have already nearly vanished in upstream sectors like coal, steel, aluminum and cement; are now eroding in shipbuilding, construction equipment, solar equipment, and other capital goods; and will soon be falling in overbuilt consumer industries, especially, automobiles, as well. Like Japan in the mid-1990s, China is heading for an era of profitless deflation as its credit binge comes to an end.

Turkey, US Try to Establish Buffer Despite Differences – by Jamie Dettmer, GlobalSecurity.org – “In a lengthy dinner interview Sunday with editors of the Turkish Hurriyet newspaper, Turkey’s Prime Minister, Ahmet Davutoglu, appeared to acknowledge that, by touching on ‘discrepancies’ and common ground between Washington and Ankara. He implied that U.S. and Turkish warplanes will not only be seeking to protect rebel groups from Islamic State extremists but also from the Assad regime… ‘We had important points in common as well, like being against all kinds of terrorism and the need of Assad leaving power for a better Syria.’ He added: ‘The agreement we reached [with the Americans] has covered our concerns and expectations up to a certain level. I cannot get into details, but, for example, an important point was the air cover for the Free Syrian Army [FSA] and other moderate elements.‘.. U.S. officials briefing reporters in Washington stepped back from describing the proposed boundaries as a “safe zone,” saying there isn’t a specific measurement for the targeted area. ‘The goal is to establish an ISIL-free zone and ensure greater security and stability along Turkey’s border with Syria, a U.S. official told the Agence France-Press, using common acronym to refer to the Islamic State group, also known as Daesh.” (emph.added)

Ukraine-VaccinationVaccine scare in Ukraine threatens health – Rumors of Western plot, death of teen cause families to reject shots – from NBCNews.com – “Hundreds of thousands of fearful Ukrainians have refused vaccines for diseases such as diphtheria, mumps, polio, hepatitis B, tuberculosis, whooping cough and others this year, according to official estimates. Authorities have canceled a U.N.-backed measles and rubella vaccination campaign funded by U.S. philanthropist Ted Turner, and will have to collect and incinerate nearly 9 million unused doses in coming months… ‘I never thought I’d see the day where perfectly good vaccines are being destroyed,’ said Michael Bociurkiw, a spokesman for UNICEF.” (emph. added)

China’s Stock Market Just Crashed in the Most Predictable Way – by Joshua Krause, ActivistPost.com – “Of course, anyone could have predicted that. While a depression has yet to develop in China, their stocks are falling despite the best efforts of their government and other major financial institutions (which are really just an extension of the Communist Party). There is a clear historical precedent for this sort of thing. Once a bubble pops, pumping more air into it will never blow it back up. The best you can do is blow more bubbles into other sectors of the economy, which is exactly what China has been doing for years to stave off a genuine correction in their markets… You might notice that this is the same strategy employed by America’s financial elite. We’ve managed to keep our economy afloat for decades by bouncing from one economic bubble to the next, accumulating more and more debt along the way. But at the end of the day, that can’t work forever. There needs to be a correction at some point, and the longer they wait, the worse it will be when it finally comes crashing down. And that day seems to be long overdue for the likes of China, the US, and the rest of the world.”

Yemen-4000_killedHeartbreaking images reveal the human face of hunger in Yemen: SIX MILLION people are on the brink of starvation as war ravages the desperate country – by James Dunn, DailyMail.co.uk – “● Former president Abd-Rabby Mansour Hadi fled Yemen in February 2012, ● Forces loyal to the exiled president have since been fighting Houthi rebels, ● Blockades on port are plunging the country’s population into a food crisis, ● 13million people are now hungry yet the sides refuse effective ceasefires… Half of the country’s 26million population are now struggling to eat, according to Oxfam, as the war in the country rages on… Oxfam’s Yemen country director Philippe Clerc said: ‘As the warring parties continue to ignore calls for a ceasefire, the average family in Yemen is left wondering when their next meal will be.’.. Nearly 4,000 people have been killed and more than 1.2 million displaced in the conflict so far… The United Nations say that four fifths of the population need help… As well as the six million starving people, Oxfam believes 12.9million are hungry.”

Israeli Drone Kills 5 inside Syria, Support for ISIS Attack on Druze – by Gordon Duff, VeteransToday.com – ” ‘An Israeli plane hit a car inside the town of Hader, killing two (Syrian soldiers and 3) popular committee forces in the town,” said Rami Abdel Rahman, director of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights… Hader is a Druze village that lies along the ceasefire line, with the Israeli-occupied portion of the Golan Heights plateau to the west, and the border with Damascus province to the northeast… According to Hezbollah’s official television station Al-Manar, ‘two members of Syria’s National Defence Forces were killed when an Israeli drone targeted their car at the entrance of Hader, in Quneitra province.’.. The National Defence Forces have fighters operating throughout Syria. Rebel fighters (ISIS/Daesh) surrounded the village of Hader on June 17 after fierce clashes with Syria’s National Defence Forces in the area.”

Katie_Hopkinsfrom the Shape-of-Things-to-Come Desk: Sun columnist Katie Hopkins calls for ‘euthanasia vans’ as Britain has ‘far too many old people’ – from RT.com – “The controversial Sun columnist, who only recently apologized for the language in her inflammatory piece which referred to immigrants attempting to cross the Mediterranean as “cockroaches,” said it was “ridiculous” that animals could be put to sleep, “but not people.”.. In an interview with the Radio Times, she argued although medical science allowed people to live longer, that didn’t necessarily mean it was the right path to choose… ‘We just have far too many old people,’ she said. ‘It’s ridiculous to be living in a country where we can put dogs to sleep but not people.’.. ‘We need to accept that just because medical advances mean we can live longer, it’s not necessarily the right thing to do.’.. Her solution to the problem? ‘Easy. Euthanasia vans – just like ice-cream vans – that would come to your home.’.. ‘It would all be perfectly charming. They might even have a nice little tune they’d play. I mean this genuinely. I’m super-keen on euthanasia vans,’ she said.”

AMA declares war on natural doctors, proposes gag order to silence progressive physicians like Dr. Oz – by Ethan A. Huff, NaturalNews.com – “For a group whose professional membership represents a mere 17 percent of all medical doctors, the AMA sure has a lot of gall trying to police the entire medical industry with its own opinions on science. The AMA apparently sees itself as the gatekeeper of all scientific knowledge even though the group maintains an ironic position of clinging to the most outmoded dinosaur science at the expense of medical progress… According to the Alliance for Natural Health USA (ANH-USA), the AMA, responding to a recent proposal by a handful of medical students, has decided to make some changes to its official policies on medical ethics. Clearly a reactionary move in response to Dr. Oz blowing the lid on glyphosate causing cancer in humans, the policy changes are directed at “celebrity” doctors who have a mass media platform to influence public opinion.”

Abu_SayyafWestern official confirms Turkey-ISIL secret oil business – from PressTV.ir – “According to the Western official, the documents on the undeclared alliance were obtained following a US raid on the compound of the key ISIL figure, Abu Sayyaf, in Syria in May, which led to his killing… ‘There are hundreds of flash drives and documents that were seized there,’ the official said. ‘They are being analyzed at the moment, but the links are already so clear that they could end up having profound policy implications for the relationship between us and Ankara.’.. The ISIL operative was responsible for smuggling oil from fields in eastern Syria. The oil then found its way into the black market to become the main driver of revenues for ISIL, with Turkish buyers as its main clients… Turkey has been facing criticism for facilitating militants’ border crossings to join ISIL in Syria, which has been grappling with foreign-backed militancy since March 2011. Ankara has also been criticized for providing assistance to Takfiri terrorists waging war in the Arab country.”

UK Children at risk of radicalization monitored and taken into state care (kidnapped) – from RT.com – “Over thirty children in the past twelve months were found to have been subject to court orders because they were categorized extremist or thought to be at risk of radicalization… Some have been put under temporary care orders, with UK courts increasingly intervening when family members seek to indoctrinate youngsters with radical ideologies… Civil courts are also taking action when impressionable youngsters express a desire to join forces with Islamic State. The vast majority of these youngsters are lured into this extremist mindset after being exposed to a barrage of online propaganda… In cases where youngsters are deemed at risk of radicalization, British judges are issuing court orders to stop them traveling to Syria. This measure means the High Court alone holds responsibility for these children and their movements… Temporary care orders, which pave the way for fostering, have also been filed against youngsters feared to be in jeopardy of extremist brainwashing by family members… Between April 2012 and June 2014, over 2,300 people were placed on the government’s Channel program. Some 834 were under 18 years of age, while 84 were younger than 12.”

Gold Manipulation: It’s Much Bigger Than You Think – by Dave Kranzler, InvestmentResearchDynamics. com – “The gold price manipulation scheme will go down as the biggest financial market scandal in US history for numerous reasons. They include the destruction of the free market system in the United States. The manipulation of the gold and silver prices eventually led to the manipulation of US interest rates via the Fed, the stock market via the Plunge Protection Team, and to the currency markets.” –Bill Murphy, GATA.org – “The gold manipulation scheme has taken on historic proportions.  It’s been going on for several decades – witness the London gold pools of the 1960’s which were implemented to prevent the price of gold from taking off because the U.S. was running out of gold with which to back the Treasury debt it had issued to foreign creditors who were redeeming their Treasury notes for gold per the Bretton Woods Agreement.”

Do We Need to Bring Back Internment Camps? – by Ron Paul, ActivistPost.com – “Retired Army Gen. Mike Flynn, who was head of the Defense Intelligence Agency during the US wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, told al-Jazeera this week that US drones create more terrorists than they kill. He said: ‘The more weapons we give, the more bombs we drop, that just … fuels the conflict.’.. Still Washington pursues the same strategy while expecting different results… It is probably almost inevitable that the warhawks will turn their anger inward, toward Americans who are sick of the endless and costly wars. The US loss of the Vietnam war is still blamed by many on the protesters at home rather than on the foolishness of the war based on a lie in the first place… Let’s hope these threats from Clark and Trump are not a trial balloon leading to a clampdown on our liberties. There are a few reasons we should be concerned. Last week the US House passed a bill that would allow the Secretary of State to unilaterally cancel an American citizen’s passport if he determines that person has “aided” or “abetted” a terrorist organization. And as of this writing, the Senate is debating a highway funding bill that would allow the Secretary of State to cancel the passport of any American who owes too much money to the IRS.”

Inflation or Deflation? – by Alfred Adask, Adask.wordpress.com – “But, if government were sufficiently desperate, it could cause significant inflation overnight by simply declaring that the purchasing power of the dollar had been reduced by, say, 50%.  The resulting inflation would be sudden, overt and undeniable. Government would have to take the blame. But sufficient inflation might be achieved to offset the forces of deflation that’ve been significant since A.D. 2008 and actually “stimulate” the economy… You might go to sleep on Friday with $20,000 in your bank account and wake up on Monday morning to learn that government had declared that the purchasing power of Friday’s $20,000 was reduced to, say, $10,000.  Creditors would scream.  Debtors would cheer.  Since most Americans are debtors, the cheers might drown out the screams.  For a while… All of which leads me to a recent report by Stansberry Research entitled ‘First Look: U.S. Dollar Substitute to Go Public on Oct 20th?’.. According to Stansberry:  ‘On Oct 20th of this year, the IMF is expected to announce a reserve currency alternative to the U.S. dollar.’..  Remember the CNN-Money report from A.D. 2011 that the IMF had threatened to create an alternative World Reserve Currency to replace the fiat dollar?  That new currency was to be based on SDRs… IF the Stansberry report is accurate, it may be that on October 20th, we’ll see a new, international currency that either supplants or replaces the US dollar as “petro-currency” and/or World Reserve Currency.  One result of this new currency should be at least two or three years of significant dollar inflation.” (emph. added)

Passport-in-flamesTerror Watchlists Erasing American Rights: Feds to “Revoke Passports Without Charge or Trial” – by Mac Slavo, ActivistPost.com – “H.R. 237, the “FTO (Foreign Terrorist Organization) Passport Revocation Act of 2015, ‘will allow the U.S. Secretary of State the unchecked authority to prohibit individuals from traveling internationally. According to the bill, the Secretary may unilaterally revoke (or refuse to issue) a passport from ‘any individual whom the Secretary has determined has aided, assisted, abetted, or otherwise helped an organization the Secretary has designated as a foreign terrorist organization pursuant to section 219 of the Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1189).’.. ‘The House has now acted to locate and contain these traitors,’ Rep. Poe said in a press release. ‘These Benedict Arnold traitors who have turned against America and joined the ranks of foreign radical terrorist armies should lose all rights afforded to our citizens.’ “

British Cannabis Petition Forces MPs to Consider Debating Legalization – by Damien Gayle, Alternet.org – “A petition calling for the total legalization of cannabis in the UK has been signed by more than 125,000 people in just four days… The response to an appeal hosted on the government’s official e-petitions website means MPs must now consider debating the issue in parliament. All petitions that reach 100,000 signatures are given such consideration… The petition’s success comes after a persistent campaign on social media, with activist-linked Twitter accounts around the world calling on UK-resident marijuana smokers to sign up.”

Quantum Relativity – The bridge between quantum physics and general relativity requires a paradigm shiftQuantum_Relativity – from StormCloudsGathering.com – “We still have to deal with the “real world” with its time clocks, bills, wars, and petty tyrants, right?.. Well, this rabbit hole actually goes much, much deeper, but if you want to take something home from this level start here: the rules of the game are not as rigid as you’ve been taught that they are… If you start with our quantum nature as your point of reference, everything changes. The very idea that we owe obedience to these pitiful phantoms that we call government, or that we are bound to keep spinning these bizarre hamster wheels we’ve built for ourselves, becomes laughable… It doesn’t have to be this way. Choose something different… Find that millimeter of free will within, and expand it. As you do, you’ll start to realize that reality is a creative process, not a mechanical, linear, progression… You are the quantum singularity interacting with itself. The more we wake up to that the wider the possibilities become.”

Nevsun-Bisha_Mine-captUN finds Eritrea may have committed crimes against humanity – by Tom Miles, Finance.Yahoo.com – “Eritrea effectively enslaves people by a system known as “national service” that involves “arbitrary detention, torture, sexual torture, forced labour, absence of leave”, the report said… National service is supposed to last 18 months, but the commission spoke to one witness who had fled after 17 years. Witnesses reported people being executed for trying to avoid being drafted into service as recently as 2013, it said… The commission said it had evidence forced labour had been used in the construction of the Bisha mine, a copper-gold project owned jointly by Canadian miner Nevsun Resources Ltd and Eritrea… Nevsun could not immediately be reached for comment. In 2013, in response to similar allegations, Nevsun said it regretted if a state-controlled subcontractor it had been required to use had employed conscripts.” – Too bad, so sad…

Russia Shoots Down “US Stealth Coup”: Tough Times for America’s “Color Revolution” industry – by Tony Cartalucci, GlobalResearch.ca – “Eastern Europe after the fall of the Soviet Union, and honed during the so-called “Arab Spring,” the process of backing subversion in a targeted country and overthrowing a sitting government under the cover of staged mass protests appears to be finally at the end of running its course… That is because the United States can no longer hide the fact that it is behind these protests and often, even hide their role in the armed elements that are brought in covertly to give targeted governments their final push out the door. Nations have learned to identify, expose, and resist this tactic… America’s next generation of “color revolutions” attempt to obfuscate all possible ties between themselves and their agitators in an attempt to take back the strategic initiative by maintaining maximum plausible deniability. But if one knows where to look, they will find that no amount of obfuscation and subterfuge can cover the links between the US State Department and its mobs… The protests were the work of  the “No To Plunder” group, led by lawyers and activists emanating from the US State Department National Endowment for Democracy (NED), USAID, and Open Society-funded Armenian Young Lawyers Association (AYLA) and the Helsinki Citizens’ Assembly Vanadzor Office who openly coordinated efforts with “No To Plunder” to pressure the government on a number of issues.”

Erdogan-NetanyahuErodogan and Netanyahu Declare War – by James Petras, VeteransNewsNow.com – “A recent proposal written by Professor Phillip Zelikow in the Financial Times (7/23/15, p. 9 ) entitled “To Balance (sic) the Nuclear Deal, Defeat ISIS and Confront Iran” is chilling… The former ‘Executive Director of the ‘9/11 Commission Investigation Report’, uber-insider Zelikow promotes the formation of an ingenious coalition, in the name of fighting ISIS, but whose real purpose is to “confront Iranian ambitions”.   Zelikow’s “coalition” includes Turkey, which will be assigned to attack Iran’s regional allies in Syria and Lebanon (Hezbollah) – all in the name of “fighting ISIS”… The bland, bespectacled and most respectable Professor Zelikow lays out Netanyahu’s own bloody hit list down to the most minute detail – but tidied up with a thin veneer of ‘confronting ISIS’ to obscure his real agenda.  This is no blustering AIPAC thug or open Neo-Con war monger beating the drums… Zelikow’s ‘anti-ISIS coalition’ will ultimately go after the Iraqi Shia militia and their main supporters among Iran’s Revolutionary Guard – hewing closely to Netanyahu’s strategy”

The Latest Anti-Choice Move: Try to Take Custody of a Woman’s Fetus – by Jessica Valenti, Alternet.org – “Alabama ACLU legal director Randall Marshall, one of the woman’s lawyers, told the Huffington Post that this is the first time the state has used these charges to try to prevent an abortion. “It appears to me that what the state is attempting to do is turn Jane Doe into a vessel, and control every aspect of her life,” he said… If this dystopian Handmaid’s Tale nonsense wasn’t bad enough, Doe’s fetus was even appointed an attorney, thanks to a law passed in 2014 allowing such a move. (As The Daily Show’s brilliant Jessica Williams said toone such ‘fetal attorney’: ‘You have a crazy-ass job, sir.’)”

Rafah_Bombing-Aug-1-2014Israel intentionally killed civilians after soldier’s capture in Gaza — Amnesty – by Rania Khalek, ElectronicIntifada.net – The most lethal Black Friday attack occurred in Rafah’s eastern al-Tannur neighborhood, where the Israeli army dropped two one-ton MK-84/GBU-31 bunker buster bombs designed to penetrate underground command centers onto a single-story building, leaving a massive crater and a wide radius of destruction… Though the building was empty, at least 18 people were killed in the streets as they dodged an assortment of artillery, helicopter and drone fire hunting them. It was the single deadliest attack on Black Friday… The attack appeared to be aimed at a tunnel shaft inside the building, where the Israeli army believed Goldin was possibly being held… In the earliest hours of the attack, ‘the Israeli army appeared to fire at moving vehicles without distinction,’ particularly ambulances moving toward al-Najjar Hospital. The Israeli attacks on ambulances were likely an attempt to prevent Goldin’s captors from getting him medical treatment… Residents of the Musabbeh neighborhood gathered at the nearby mosque in the afternoon, following Israeli orders to evacuate. An eyewitness told Amnesty that he watched from his rooftop as a drone missile struck Suleiman Muhawish al-Hashash and his daughter, who were passing by the mosque on foot looking for a ride to safety… When people inside the mosque came out to help, a second missile attacked. “Then a third missile hit the door of the mosque, injuring Youssef Ahmed Sheikh al-Eid, Dua Sheikh al-Eid and her three children, all under four years of age,” the witness told Amnesty… Three ambulances were dispatched to the scene. The first to arrive scooped up the wounded but was struck by a missile fired from a drone.”

Pentagon Employing Top Scientists to Improve US Propaganda Machine – by Cassius Methyl, ActivistPost.com – “The project is intended to analyze how “narratives” play into human psychology, delving into the way these constructs affect the mind. A narrative is a way of phrasing something, a choice of words, for example, that is likely a biased strategy to frame information…’Narratives exert a powerful influence on human thoughts, emotions and behavior and can be particularly important in security contexts,’ DARPA researchers said in a paper published in the Journal of Neuroscience Methods… They discussed ‘…conflict resolution and counterterrorism scenarios [and] detecting the neural response underlying empathy induced by stories is of critical importance.’.. Mastery of “narratives” could potentially be used to manipulate the perception of a population using platforms of communication like television to subtly and potently make a person think a certain way. Many people know this tactic by a more familiar term: propaganda.”

Got_Ya-Ya_Bastards‘Gambling with lives’: Private contractors pick US drone targets, says report – from RT.com – “The BIJ investigation estimates that one in ten (Pentagon) analysts of drone data is currently a civilian contractor… According to the investigation, US military drones and spy planes gather 1,100 hours of video data every day, which has to be analyzed, often in real time. Military officials say the need for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance – ISR, in military parlance – has spiked since the campaign against Islamic State was launched last summer… ‘We’re seeing just an insatiable demand signal,’ said Colonel Jim Cluff, commander of the drone squadrons at Creech Air Force Base in Nevada. ‘You cannot get enough ISR capability to meet all the warfighters’ needs.’.. Contractors interviewed by the BIJ, speaking on condition of anonymity, say they are usually former military. They say they have more knowledge and experience than the uniformed airmen, who are often fresh high-school graduates… ‘You cannot identify something unless you’ve seen it before,’ said one full-motion video (FMV) analyst… The civilians review live footage from drones and spy planes surveilling the battlefields of the Middle East, and advise uniformed operators whether the people they spot are civilians or potential targets. While the contractors never pull the trigger themselves, their advice shapes the thinking of military operators and commanders.”

Massive Global Tree Die-Off Linked to Geoengineering – by Buck Rogers, WakingTimes.com – “The U.S. Forest Service attributes the majority of California’s dying trees to the intensifying drought, noting that too many consecutive years of dry conditions weakens a trees defenses against diseases, funghi, and insects such as the pine beetle. The drought is generally blamed on global climate change, which can mean a number of things, and heat waves around the world are intensifying and lasting longer. NASA has even reported that rainfall is severely down world wide… However, in areas of California less-affected by the drought such as the Boreal forest of the northern central valley of California, it’s not just trees that are withering away, but shrubs, bushes and plants are also dying in shocking quantities. These native trees and plants should be able to withstand current conditions, but they are losing foliage, thinning out, dropping needles, dropping branches, and dying. This, in one of the most shaded and wettest areas of California.”

Erdogan-FierceRed(highly recommended) Power-Mad Erdogan Launches War in Attempt to Become Turkey’s Supreme Leader – by Mike Whitney, Counterpunch.org – “Turkish bombers continued to pound Kurdish positions in Northern Iraq early Thursday after killing an estimated 100 Kurds a day earlier. Erdogan broke off peace talks with the Kurdish militias and launched this latest assault after failing to win enough seats in Parliament to change the constitution. The ambitious Erdogan needed 330 deputies to make sweeping changes to the constitution that would give the president unlimited executive power making Erdogan de facto emperor of Turkey. His plan was frustrated by the pro-Kurdish People’s Democratic Party (HDP) that won an unprecedented 13 percent of the vote. The HDP is determined to prevent Erdogan from realizing his dream of becoming Turkey’s imperial sultan . The current war against the Kurds in Syria and Iraq is designed to whip up nationalist sentiment in order to put Erdogan “over the top” in elections that could come as early as this Fall.”

Trans-Pacific Partnership Negotiations Come to Screeching Halt – by Star Fox, ActivistPost.com – “As Curtis Ellis of WND concludes, the negotiations are likely now to stretch into the upcoming presidential election… ‘The failure to reach an agreement assures TPP will be an issue in next year’s presidential contest. Insurgent candidates Donald Trump on the right and Bernie Sanders on the left oppose the deal, pressing establishment candidates to take a stand on a pact that is deeply unpopular with voters across the political spectrum,’ Ellis writes… The TPP has come under harsh scrutiny due to the level of secrecy surrounding the deal. Members of the U.S. Congress have been threatened with reprisal if they speak publicly about the treaty’s contents… What’s also extremely concerning is the fact that members of Congress must enter a private room in the basement of the capital, where they must surrender their belongings while totally absent of legal assistance in order to review some of the text in the treaty.”

UN Agenda 21 Still Advancing Worldwide

UN Agenda 21 Still Advancing Worldwide

“We have before us the opportunity to forge for ourselves and for future generations a new world order — a world where the rule of law, not the law of the jungle, governs the conduct of nations. When we are successful — and we will be — we have a real chance at this new world order, an order in which a credible United Nations can use its peacekeeping role to fulfill the promise and vision of the U.N.’s founders.” – G.H.W. Bush Speaking at start of first Gulf War, 1991

What is Agenda 21? — Quoting from the UN website: “Agenda 21 is a comprehensive plan of action to be taken globally, nationally and locally by organizations of the United Nations System, Governments, and Major Groups in every area in which human impacts on the environment.”(sic)

equity-environment-economy-350Many have said that Agenda 21 is now outdated policy that’s fallen into neglect. This is far from true. For example, among many other things, the slow-motion train wreck of our ongoing world economic collapse supports UN Agenda 21, and the UN conference on “Post-2015 Sustainability Agenda” coming this September is a clear reiteration. Apologists say that Agenda 21 is only “Soft Law,” a policy that has no teeth. But they’re lying. In 20 years, through stealth implementation, this plan has become embedded in local policies all over the United States. It’s called Sustainable Development. Wherever you see it you’ll find “The 3 E’s:” ecology, economy, equity. In the upcoming UN conference, where the Jesuit Pope Francis will be appearing to promote his recent encyclical, they’re being called “People, Planet and Prosperity.”

Agenda 21 emerged full-blown from the UN Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) aka The Rio Summit, in 1992. 16 to 17 thousand “delegates,” who were somehow given official status as officers of the UN, travelled from all over the world to take part in an 11 day party in Rio De Janeiro, where they were presented with Agenda 21, The United Nations Programme of Action from Rio, a more than 300 page document that they were asked to approve, though it seems unlikely that many of them could have had time to even read it. Unsurprisingly, they voted to accept it, and it was suddenly official United Nations policy for the world.

I recently spoke with a delegate to Rio from Santa Cruz, who took exception to the way I’ve characterized the Rio Summit above. After more than 20 years, she entirely believes that the document was created by agreement at Rio, that its ideas and principles are unimpeachable, and that it has only been improved on since then. This is the genius behind the ways this program of worldwide social engineering has been rolled out, as well-meaning people are enrolled as supporters through poetic-sounding but fuzzy phrases, pledges of concern for the masses of humanity, and clever misdirection.

In fact, the Agenda 21 document was largely a creation of Maurice Strong, a mysterious man with a double-tracked career as both a high official at the UN, and as a billionaire financial insider extracting the Earth’s resources in the petroleum and mining industries. Strong first took the world stage prominently as “Secretary General,” a title the UN, for whatever reasons, adopted directly from communist and socialist organizations, of the United Nations Conference on the Human Environment in Stockholm in 1972.

Strong’s very scant bio on Wikipedia says that he “met a leading UN official in 1947 (when Strong was just 18) who arranged for him…to serve as a junior security officer at the UN headquarters in Lake Success, New York” (before the new UN building was built on land donated by the Rockefellers in Manhattan). Just one year later, Strong became a trainee in a high-powered brokerage in Canada, “where he took an interest in the oil business,” and was transferred to an office in “the Alberta oil patch.” There he was quickly hired as an assistant to an oil-industry leader, Jack Gallagher — All while maintaining his connections at the UN.

In 1971, before the conference in Stockholm, Strong commissioned a report on the state of the planet, entitled “Only One Earth: The Care and Maintenance of a Small Planet”. The report summarized the findings of 152 leading experts from 58 countries in preparation for that first UN meeting on the environment. This was the world’s first “state of the environment” report. Following the Conference, Strong became the Chairman of the new United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), until 1975, and served as a member of the Brundtland Commission (below).

The 1972 conference was followed by several other major conferences as well as sets of meetings all over the world laying out the shape of this emerging globalist agenda. Despite the elusive nature of this long process and the ways it’s remained under the radar of the mainstream media, it has somehow remained on track with constant reiterations. In 1976 there was the UN Conference on Human Settlements which produced a Declaration containing 26 principles concerning the environment and development, an Action Plan with 109 recommendations, and a Resolution.

Here is an excerpt from the Conference Preamble: “Land…cannot be treated as an ordinary asset, controlled by individuals and subject to the pressures and inefficiencies of the market.  Private land ownership is also the principle instrument of accumulation and concentration of wealth, and therefore, contributes to social injustice; if unchecked, it may become a major obstacle in the planning and implementation of development schemes

This preamble is followed by 65 pages of very specific land use recommendations. Among the many recommendations are: A-1) Redistribute population in accord with resources, D-1) Government must control the use of land to achieve equitable distribution of resources, D-2) Control land use through zoning & land-use planning, D-3) Excessive profits from land use must be recaptured by government, D-4) Public ownership of land should be used to exercise urban and rural land reform, and D-5) Owner rights should be separated from development rights which should be held by a public authority.

Then, in the fall of 1983, the 38th Session of the United Nations General Assembly passed a resolution to create a commission “to propose long-term environmental strategies for achieving sustainable development to the year 2000 and beyond” (emphasis added). Gro Harlem Brundtland, former (and later) Prime Minister of Norway and Vice President of the Socialist International (sometimes called “the cradle of globalism”) was appointed to chair the commission. In her forward to Our Common Future, the 400 page report from what would become known as The Brundtland Commission, she wrote, ” ‘ A global agenda for change’ – this was what the World Commission on Environment and Development was asked to formulate. It was an urgent call by the General Assembly of the United Nations…” With this conference, the term “sustainable development” first appeared.

It’s from this long-term plan which emerged 20 years before the 1992 Rio Summit, that the many seemingly friendly terms such as Sustainability, Smart Growth, Resilient and Walkable Communities, and High Density Urban Mixed-Use Development come. It seems like no one had never heard these phrases 10 years ago but that now they’re everywhere we look. Among other key terms are: Equity, Affordable housing, Consensus, Social Justice, Human Settlements, Watershed, Facilitator, Best Management Practices, Outcome Based Education. Habitat Restoration, Quality of life, Benefit of all, Public/Private Partnerships, Common good, Collaborative, Inter-disciplinary, Stakeholder, School to Work, Visioning, and the all-important Regional. If you see these terms, particularly in combinations, you can be sure you’re looking at language dedicated to implementing this agenda.

In 1992, 172 governments attended the Rio Summit, with 116 sending heads of state. There were also 2,400 people from UN-connected NGO’s. Then President George HW Bush was there on Prince Charles’ yacht, where he signed the Agenda 21 document with absolutely no legal standing to do so.

In 1993, shortly after Bill Clinton took office, Nancy Pelosi helped, with 33 original cosponsors, to introduce legislation “to implement Agenda 21.” The bill passed the house, but was stopped in the Senate. But with clearly international pressure to advance the program, in June 1993 Democrat Clinton created The President’s Council on Sustainable Development which has placed Sustainability Officers in every federal department and agency since then. This has resulted in administrative regulations enforcing Agenda 21 policies as (possibly fraudulent) hard law, and in huge distortions in federal funding that have forced States to adhere to federal dictates.


An international treaty, the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), was also presented at the Rio Summit for signing, and was eventually brought to the U.S. Senate for ratification in 1994. At first, it looked like it would pass, but at the last hour, text from a book Global Biodiversity Assessment (GBA), which was not to be published for another year and a half, was leaked to staff of Senators, along with the now well-known Biodiversity Wildlands Map, which showed graphically the plan to move Americans off the land and into dense “human settlement zones.” The Convention wasn’t ratified, while the MSM reported that the GBA book did not exist. Congress has, so far, refused to implement Agenda 21 as policy for the United States of America. But it has been advanced by Presidential edicts.

The End of Natural Property Rights — UN policy on “land” has been clear since the 1976 Conference on Human Settlements. Its preamble on land quoted above continues:

“Social justice, urban renewal and development, the provision of decent dwellings and healthy conditions for the people can only be achieved if land is used in the interests of society as a whole.

“Public control of land use is therefore indispensable to its protection as an asset and the achievement of the long-term objectives of human settlement policies and strategies.”

This makes obvious the position of the UN policy makers that private property is now to be considered as a social asset to be controlled by “the public.” The exact nature of this public is, however, not clear. The Fifth Amendment of the Constitution says, “No person shall… be deprived of… property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.” But the UN Declaration of Human Rights, Article 17 Sec 2 says, “Property shall not be arbitrarily taken.” This is a crucial difference. Somehow “the public” can take private property from you, as long as it’s not done “arbitrarily.”

Santa Cruz County seems to have been targeted for early implementation of Agenda 21. Two years before Agenda 21 was unveiled in 1992, the voters of the County passed Measure C, “The Decade of the Environment ” containing many of the key tenets of the UN Program, and which has been reaffirmed every ten years by the Board of Supervisors, and is reported on regularly by the Planning Department.

Cover-SC_County-Local_A21-bThe Supervisors also fell into step with the Agenda in 1993-94 when they “officially approved the process” of the “Sustainable Santa Cruz: Local Agenda 21” 100-page planning guide created by Action-Santa Cruz County and the Santa Cruz Chapter of the United Nations Association. This type of document was directly called for in Agenda 21 itself — In Chapter 28, “Local Authorities Initiatives,” the first objective listed is “(a) By 1996, most local authorities in each country should have undertaken a consultative process with their populations and achieved a consensus on ‘a local Agenda 2I’ for the community…” Of course, this directive was unknown in most of the rest of the U.S.

In our society the direct taking of peoples’ properties is, so far, unacceptable to most people. What has happened instead, certainly in Santa Cruz, is the use of permitting processes, zoning and taxation, including the infamous “Red Tags,” to gradually take away the productive use of their land from property owners without compensation. Though a relatively small county, Santa Cruz has, after LA County, the second-largest planning department in the State. There are currently thousands of red tags on record here, and, according to some counts, hundreds of owners have been forced off their properties, which have, in many cases, been transferred to insider “Private Partners” through practices many say are corrupt. Frequently, after the new owner appears, zoning is changed or permits are issued for new uses.

It is getting increasingly hard to get permits for single family homes, while permitting is easier to get for “High Density, Mixed Use” (typically floors of small apartments above retail spaces of questionable utility – AKA “Stack n’ Pack” housing). The Santa Cruz Supervisors are in the process of creating a new tax to fund this high-density “Low Income” housing through an “Affordable Housing Assessment” on all new construction, including additions, in the County. This will raise the cost of building a house by perhaps tens-of-thousands of dollars.

International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives — or ICLEI (pronounced Ick-ly) is a UN NGO that had it’s founding meeting in 1990 in the General Assembly chamber at the UN building in Manhattan. ICLEI staff wrote one of the chapters of the Agenda 21 document, under the direction of Maurice Strong. Santa Cruz City and County have both been members of ICLEI since its inception, though this has been made as obscure as possible by local officials over time. ICLEI works to bring top-down policies from the UN globalist agenda to local communities under the guise of being guided by its membership.

ICLEI was directly involved in the creation of California bills AB 32 and SB 375, mandating severe ongoing restrictions on our “greenhouse gas emissions” in the name of the heavily-pushed and yet highly questionable theory of “global warming” caused by CO2. ICLEI was then hired by hundreds of cities and counties in California to help them draft the “Climate Action Plans” mandated to help reach the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Goals set in AB 32. This is a serious conflict of interest violation by this formal arm of the UN.

Regionalism — Regional “governance” is a concept that has been advancing in the U.S. since World War II. Regionalism has been extended across America primarily through executive presidential action, including Nixon’s creation of multi-state Federal Regions, and through confusing provisions of Congressional “Acts” which require the action of Regional Planning Agencies or Councils of Government (COG’s) in order to secure the more and more essential federal funding needed for major public works. Regional Agencies are composed of appointed officials from all levels of local government, and are not subject to direct input by voters. Our local COG is the Association of Monterey Bay Area Governments (AMBAG), founded in 1968, two years after the U.S. Model Cities Act set up the framework for AMBAG to be a funding conduit.

The COG for the nine Bay Area Counties is ABAG, the Association of Bay Area Governments. ABAG, is working with ICLEI to create the “One Bay Area” program. One Bay Area is a major initiative to promote the top-down plan to implement Agenda 21 around the San Francisco Bay. This plan for a region containing 7.5 million people, is designed to entirely remake the region in the image of Smart Growth, high-density housing and government transportation planning.

Over the next 20 years 630,000 new residential units are projected by ABAG. ALL residential construction specified by the plan is be multi-family housing. 80% of this housing must be within ½ mile of the plan’s designated “transit corridors” (permits will not be granted outside these zones). One corridor, the El Camino Real, running from San Jose to San Francisco, will be transformed into a series of government controlled Stack ‘n Pack smart growth developments. The plan is that all private vehicles will be banned from what is to then be called “The Grand Boulevard.” Through the ABAG COG, the federal government has committed more than 300 billion, mostly highway tax dollars to this “Plan Bay Area.”

Locally, something similar but more modest is being proposed under the newly rechristened “Sustainable Santa Cruz County” Regional Transportation Plan, where the eventual centerpiece will be a widened “Soquel Drive Corridor” from Dominican Hospital to Aptos, where hundreds of units of Stack n’ Pack housing will be built, close to planned public transit to include the much ballyhooed “Rail Trail” and possible train service. As part of enrolling us into this planned “sustainable” development, public “consensus” meetings have been held regularly by the Planning Department and Sustainable Santa Cruz County for the last few years.

Recent Advances in the Globalist Programs for Sustainable Development — In 2015 we are seeing two major events to promote and re-energize global population control, and a very curious confluence of globalist social engineering and the Roman Papacy. From Sept. 25 to 27 the UN will be holding its “Post-2015 Sustainability Agenda” conference at its New York headquarters, accompanied by an appearance of Pope Francis doing a formal presentation of his monumental ecologist encyclical “Laudato Si” (praised be). This conference is a clear extension of the Millennium Summit in 2000. Instead of the 8 “Millennium Development Goals” set there to be realized by 2015 (none have been), we are being given 17 this time, to be done by 2030. I will only share Goal 17 – “Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development.” Suffice it to say that The Agenda for the 21st Century slogs on.

Then, from Nov. 30 to Dec. 11 in Paris, France, will come the massive propaganda onslaught of COP21, billed as “The UN Climate Conference.” Actually, COP stands for Conference of the Parties of the Kyoto Accords, so it’s interesting to see the event subsumed under the UN. While even the 2014 IPCC report, in its section on the real climate science, admitted that there has been no significant warming of the planet for the last 15 years or so (despite the desperate pleas of upcoming disaster contained in the report’s “summary for decision makers”), we are now being lobbied relentlessly about “climate change” by the corporate media (and NPR) to prepare us for a draconian “carbon suppression regime” they hope to create at this conference. Any “carbon” taxes arising at this 12-day event are rumored to be, for the first time, going directly to the UN (“a credible United Nations”).

I’ll briefly touch upon the apparent synchronicity of Pope Francis’ encyclical with the huge world effort to push the United Nations. While it’s easy to see why many people find some of the ideas expressed in it to be moving, even poetic, to me they seem rather diffuse and confusing. More than that, the Pope’s focus on pushing the need to respond immediately to a posited “climate crisis” and to problems eerily like those driving UN sustainable development, is quite striking. Some in the “climate reality” community are elated that the spiritual force of the Pope’s message may put their quest for a serious solution to carbon “pollution” over the top. If so, it will have been very convenient.

Is Pope Francis’ encyclical really about protecting “the planet and the poor?”

Email reply to a friend after being emailed links to an article by David Suzuki raving about Pope Francis’ encyclical “Laudato Si” and a link to the encyclical itself, which was described as “a rare mix of poetic beauty and the appropriate use of intelligent thought”:

Hi (name withheld),

I would urge you to do more research into what’s going on here. Suzuki has been pushing the AGW meme for quite some time now, in the face of, and without commenting on, peer-reviewed scientific papers that show that the temperature on Earth is driven primarily by the Sun’s magnetic field.

A French scientist, Philippe de Larminat, characterized by the MSM as a “climate doubter” (better than “denier” I guess) was barred from appearing in Rome at the April climate summit sponsored by the Vatican’s Pontifical Academy of Sciences in preparation for the recent encyclical. As far as the proponents of AGW theory are concerned, there is no need to even look at evidence that suggests that it might be a major mistake to talk about taking the life-giving power of fuels containing carbon molecules away from people in the developing world, who desperately need them for survival.

I think I previously gave you a DVD with the documentary on the work of Henrik Svensmark, The Cloud Mystery, which covers the difficulties he had back in 2005-2006 publishing his peer-reviewed paper proving the energetic and chemical pathways by which cosmic rays create showers of particles called muons which cause the formation of microscopic nuclei for low-altitude clouds, which have the effect of cooling the Earth. An article I wrote on this back in 2010 can be found at https://berealtruth.wordpress.com/2010/06/28/the-cloud-mystery/. In that, I lay out the information in the documentary that shows persuasive evidence that the Earth has remained in regular cycles of heating and cooling for hundreds of millions of years, and has been cool within the parameters of these cycles even at times when there was more than 10 times the amount of CO2 presently in our atmosphere. You can read about Svensmark’s work and its implications in more detail in a book he co-authored with the great science author Nigel Calder, The Chilling Stars.

Even Al Gore has admitted that the correlations between atmospheric temperatures and CO2 that he stressed in An Inconvenient Truth, show that the rise in CO2 lags behind the rises in temperature by a matter of years. You can also see the current work of retired NASA scientists to present information contesting the AGW theories at http://www.therightclimatestuff.com/. Another factor in the current rise in CO2 in the atmosphere is the dramatic uptick in volcanic activity we’re having worldwide, which greatly increases the amount of gasses being emitted.

The papal encyclical largely implies that there is a moral imperative to, in protecting our Earth Mother, do what we can to prevent climate disaster. He says this is particularly necessary to protect the impoverished of the world, without mentioning the potential disaster for them of any kind of “carbon” rationing regime. Also, if there is an imperative to protect the Earth and its people, why is there no mention of the ongoing geoengineering agenda which Dane Wigington has documented is now killing the forests of the world (not to mention poison us all with a cocktail of toxic heavy metals)?

Why has the Pope weighed in on this issue at this time, even going so far as to appear at the U.N. in concert with the upcoming conference on “the Post-2015 Sustainability Agenda” (i.e. an updated iteration of Agenda 21)? Could it be to provide momentum in preparation for the COP21 conference in Paris in Nov. and Dec.? Can it be that the global elite agenda needs to bring in a “carbon” suppression program rapidly now, before it becomes utterly obvious that the Earth, due to the drastic reduction in the solar magnetic field that’s been underway since the mid-1990’s, indicated by the very weak solar maximum last year, is most likely leading to a longer term cooling trend? This has been shown by the infamous “hiatus” that NOAA recently got caught cooking data in an attempt to try to deny is even happening. Even the 2014 IPCC report, which had a powerfully propagandistic “Summary for Decision Makers,” admitted that there has been no warming for 15 years in the scientific part of the report. Given that the IPCC has been pushing for draconian measures against the world population for nearly 2 decades, why would they include that information if it were not true?

I’m suggesting that there are reasons other than “settled science” and a need to protect the population of the world for what’s going on now. It doesn’t make sense to give the Vatican unquestioned moral leeway as somehow representing unimpeachable ethics, in the face of Rome’s history of controlling people over the centuries, including recent decades, and in particular, playing games with scientific knowledge. If the science were “settled,” why would people on the AGW bandwagon be rejoicing that this encyclical is the element that can push their efforts for control of the world population over the top? Shouldn’t the truth do that?

In Lak’ech,

A Reply to a Question on “Chemtrail Debunking”

This is a response to a volunteer for the Coalition to End Toxic Aerosols (CETA) campaign. She was having a discussion by email with a friend, and her friend started sending her articles that, in her friend’s opinion, showed that Geoengineering is the product of the imaginations of that flaky and excitable species known as “Conspiracy Theorists.” One of the links she sent me to look at is: http://science.howstuffworks.com/transport/flight/modern/what-are-chemtrails.htm – My reply is below:

The article on How Stuff Works (such a cozy name for a website – simply some homey common sense…) is a professionally created propaganda piece. These types of articles are deliberately created to give people who don’t want to see what’s happening over their heads and consider its implications, because understanding the information would be devastating to their worldviews, an excuse to defer to the debunkers as experts. People then will present this propaganda to their friends that are just trying to tell them about real programs that are affecting the lives of them and their loved ones, to continue to fend off the bad news – news that calls into question the nature and trustworthiness of the government and the health systems, among other things. These types of articles generally never actually look at the data that people exposing the geoengineering agenda present. They give people pat answers that seem to make sense on the surface, but that don’t hold up on examination. I will list some of the data points that contradict this kind of thinking below:

1) The article is careful to stress that the people who say that something is being sprayed in the sky are Conspiracy Theorists. This should be a big clue to anyone reading this. The term was created by the CIA in the wake of the Warren Commission Report on the Kennedy assassination to scare people away from looking at the severe inconsistencies and implausibilities of that cover up.

2) Contrails have always been made of ice particles, appearing at high altitudes where the air is very cold. There is a formula for calculating how long they will linger based on altitude, barometric pressure, temperature and humidity. The laws of physics have not changed suddenly at the end of the 1990’s. Contrails do not linger for hours from horizon to horizon and spread out to create dead-looking scummy clouds that often have strange rainbow hues in them where they refract the sun.

3) The materials from the geoengineering spray have been observed to precipitate to the ground and can be observed as major flurries of powders, tiny fibers, or even web-like strands that can cover large areas of ground. These materials have been gathered and tested and they contain the usual suspects: Aluminum oxide and salts, Barium and Strontium salts and other heavy metals, as well as other man-made substances.

4) People have gotten very sick and died after heavy spraying in some places. In Britain in the early 2000’s there was a wave of spraying that jammed the emergency rooms, and so many people died that they needed to bring in refrigerated trucks to use as temporary morgues.

5) Modern High-Bypass Fan Jet Engines are almost incapable of leaving contrails except under the most extreme conditions – The turbo fans that are the main drivers of the engines force massive volumes of non-combusted air around the center combustion chamber, which dry out the exhaust and cool it down, inhibiting the formation of ice particles.

6) Engines have always left other particulates and chemicals in their exhausts. Why did they start appearing differently around 1996 or so? Some analysts have said that more modern engines actually burn cleaner. Again, the laws of physics did not change.

7) People in many locations have tracked the air traffic of the planes leaving geoengineering plumes. Most of them do not appear in logs of commercial traffic. Many of them are flying in prohibited military airspace. The planes also leave their aerosols in obvious weather formations where parallel or grid patterns will appear in concentrated areas that have demonstrated potential to affect weather systems. I have personally seen massive sets of parallel plumes sprayed over Death Valley, the high Sierras, and Baja California, where clear skies in the mornings were completely whited out by the afternoons in areas where there was no logical reason for commercial air traffic.

8) The ingredients of the aerosol plumes have been found in air, on surfaces, in running and standing water, in snow and in the soil. In the soil, aluminum and barium have been found around structures, but not in the soil beneath them. It raises the ph level in soil. In Shasta County, Francis Mangels has found that the soil has generally gone from around 5.8 ph to 6.7 – he’s found much high alkalinity in some places. This raised alkalinity is inhibiting the ability of plants to absorb nutrients and shrubs and trees are dying even where water is plentiful around creeks, etc. The materials have been found in newly created ponds at very high levels. In streams around Shasta the aquatic insect life has been reduced 90 percent or more and fish are starving. Mangels also found aluminum at 61,000 parts per billion in snow on Mt. Shasta. This is not a form of aluminum that occurs in nature, it’s been refined and processed.

9) There are many patents for doing geoengineering that call for precisely the materials that are being found in the wake of the spraying. The patents call for nano-particulates (in some patents smaller than 10 microns) which will float in the sky as long as possible. Nano-particulates have special chemical properties. They are immediately absorbed by the capillaries in the lungs and enter the bloodstream, where they cross the blood-brain barrier without interference. These materials are found in peoples’ blood and hair samples. Nano-particulates are also explosively flammable, which gives an explanation for the much hotter and more dangerous wildfires that have been observed and commented on by fire-fighters in many places.

10) Kristen Meghan, who was an Air Force Base Bio-Environmental Engineer, is a whistle blower who has come forward at great risk to her own safety. She saw the inventory manifests of the geoengineering materials that were coming onto her base, as well as the biological tests on the Air Men and Women on the base that showed the presence of these materials in their bodies.

11) There are dozens of photographs of different kinds of spraying equipment installed inside what appear to be passenger-type jets. Some show patent numbers on the tanks which correspond to patents on environmental aerosol processes.

12) One of the features of the “Polar Vortex” in the Eastern U.S. and other freak storms is the fall of what’s sometimes called “wet snow” that doesn’t melt in a normal way, when the temperatures are above freezing, even up into the low 50’s. People have noticed that this snow often has a chemical smell.

People don’t seem to remember what natural weather looks like anymore. Many younger people have never seen it during their lifetimes. Many don’t want to look at the sky now. How to help people realize what’s going on directly over their heads is a great challenge for us. For instance, I don’t recommend forwarding this email to your friend. You possibly need to spend time with your friends and find out what their core concerns are before trying to present them with specific information. It’s likely that they have fears about issues that stand in the way of being able to listen to ideas that trigger them. Listening is something that needs to go both ways. If you can master deep listening you will likely find the dynamics of your conversations shifting.

It’s important to understand that programs with these kinds of massive impacts will pervade all social institutions. The people who are doing this know that their actions are wrong. It only makes sense to speculate that they’ll use all of the resources at their disposal to keep people from knowing what’s happening or from interfering with their strategies.

And here is a link to a talk by Geoengineering whistle blower Kristen Meghan, in which she comments on the “debunking” sites Metabunk and Contrail Science. Those sites are part of a network of sites all put up by one man who many believe is a government disinfo operative: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jHm0XhtDyZA&spfreload=10

Learning to share controversial information is an art.

There is No “Government”

This is a comment that I put up on Foster Gamble’s recent blog post: PEOPLE STANDING FOR JUSTICE

If we look at it carefully, there is actually no such “thing” as government. What we call government is an organized structure composed of people using the concept of government as an organizational principle under their direction. Under this principle, the preservation and actualization of the imaginary structure of government itself is the preeminent imperative. The constantly propagandized need for this structure is the multifaceted and mind-numbing justification for the use of whatever means are necessary to protect and preserve, not the people who are supposedly subjects of the government, but the government structure itself. Whatever means necessary include the use of lethal force. History shows that the levels of lethal force used are limited only by the technological tools at the disposal of government actors and their ability to control the reactions and consciences of the governed. The latter is sometimes called manufacturing consent.

While the population can work, often at the cost of extreme suffering and sacrifice, to limit the irrationality and violence of the structures to which they’re subject, we see that over time people taking the role of government officials always tend to enlarge the scope of their powers, as well as the power of the technology and systems they control. The nature of the government concept inevitably attracts people without ethics against the misuse of power into pursuing power in its structure. In fact, the only way to succeed in rising to power is to abandon ethical considerations and, again, to use the means necessary to prevail over other state officials. As John Trudell said, “Their violence works. It hardly ever fails.”

A simple analytic for the validity and legitimacy of human behavior is to see if it involves violence or aggression toward other people or toward living systems. If it does, then we must be called by clear realization to not support it, whatever the rationale or justifications. As people seem to be realizing very rapidly now, it is impossible for us, however lofty our notions or rhetoric, to reach an ethical result through unethical or aggressive behaviors. This is not a matter of compiling a complicated set of rules, but by a clear seeing of what’s going on under our noses. Adopting such a simple ethic is certainly not the easiest course for our egos to take. It can be very rigorous and demanding. On the other hand, if we really want to transcend the cycles of violence and increasing suffering and destruction in which we’re now embedded, this ethical consistency and determination will be more easy than any other alternative

My Comment on Chuck Norris’ article arguing against “allowing” Americans to use cannabis


Posted at: http://www.wnd.com/2014/01/chuck-norris-smokes-marijuana-debate/

Cannabis has more than 60 phytocannabinoids, molecules that dock with receptors in every organ system in the human body and tend to contribute to our health in many ways. No other plant on Earth has been found to contain more than one of these substances. Cannabis has been used as a medicine and psychotropic REMEDY and sacrament by cultures all over Asia, Europe and Africa for thousands of years. The Constitution clearly says that the U.S. Government only has the limited powers specifically granted to it in the document, which do not include controlling what people use for their health, physical or psychological.

People who use cannabis tend to see things outside of the boxes that Americans tend to be forced into mentally by our, arguably pathological and dominating, culture. Many of the positive aspects of the 60’s youth culture were no doubt due to this effect. When cannabis was (Unconstitutionally) “outlawed,” under the influence of industries that competed with non-psychoactive industrial hemp, 30% of the medicines sold in pharmacies in the U.S. contained cannabis. What is the true explanation of why it was suppressed? What possible legitimate justification or jurisdiction is there for people who disagree with its use, to dominate users through lethal force, imprisonment, property theft or other social sanctions?


Michael Hastings demise was no accident – his car was BOMBED


Please, this was not “a suspicious car accident.”

The photo above clearly shows that Michael Hastings car was bombed. The entire front of the driver’s side of the car has been blown away.

The video linked HERE, from LoudLabs News, shows clearly that Hastings’ car hood was not crumpled from striking the palm tree, but blown away from the drivers side of the car and did not even hit the tree. MORE THAN THAT it also shows that the driver’s side front quarter of the car WAS GONE, and not even touching the tree (no serious impact damage to the palm).

The video and the photo above show that the front of the car up to the drivers side door wasn’t there. Moreover, his engine and transmission were blown 60 yards down the road, not in the direction of his car supposedly striking the tree. They landed on the far curb of the 4-lane road with no skid marks. His front right wheel was also down the road in the direction the car was traveling when “something happened.” See diagram of crash scene HERE

The tranny of the car extended well back into the passenger compartment, implying that the powerful explosive was likely placed below the passenger compartment, in order to provide the momentum to blow the drive train 60 yards forward and to clear the firewall upward doing it.

It’s time to stop pussy-footing around about this event. Hastings was assassinated.
