Mother Faces Jury Trial As Texas Seeks to Terminate Her Parental Rights Over Daughter Injured by Gardasil Vaccine –  http://healthimpactnews.com/2018/mother-faces-jury-trial-as-texas-seeks-to-terminate-her-parental-rights-over-daughter-injured-by-gardasil-vaccine/ – “Instead, the mother was accused by doctors and social workers of Munchausen syndrome by proxy (today usually called “factitious disorder”), a diagnosis that has become a convenient scapegoat to accuse parents, usually mothers, of children who are vaccine injured, medically complex, or victims of medical malpractice… It is a difficult accusation to fight, since even Munchausen experts recognize that the symptoms of Munchausen syndrome by proxy, or “medical child abuse” as it is sometimes referred as, are remarkably similar to those of parents who are seeking medical help for children with difficult medical conditions… Dr. Marc Feldman, who is considered to be a leading authority on the subject of Munchausen syndrome by proxy, says that the very fact that a mother protests and defends herself and her child is perceived as a further indication of her guilt. It is a lose/lose scenario, he told Health Impact News. (see article).” (emphasis added)

From the Magnificent-Synergies Desk: Opioid crisis sending thousands of children into foster care – by Emily Birnbaum and Maya Lora – http://thehill.com/policy/healthcare/393129-opioid-crisis-sending-thousands-of-children-into-foster-care?userid=259202 – ” ‘Children that are coming into care are staying in care longer because there’s a higher risk of relapse with their parents,’ Turner said. ‘I don’t think our state was prepared for the number of children coming into care so quickly so now we have recruitment efforts going, trying to recruit more parents and also train those parents to handle some of the unique needs of the children.’ ”

BIS Blasts Cryptos in Special Report: “Beyond the Hype”https://www.themaven.net/mishtalk/economics/bis-blasts-cryptos-in-special-report-beyond-the-hype-eE7kGAQSwUKrmeD1OSDSTQ/ – “A Bank of International Settlements (BIS) report examines cryptocurrencies in depth. The study, called “Looking Beyond the Hype” investigates whether cryptocurrencies could play any role as money… After a bit of digging, I found the crypto report is part of an upcoming BIS annual report. The BIS pre-released the crypto report today (as chapter 5)… Here’s a link to the page that contains a download for two Pre-Released BIS Chapters, one of them is on cryptos. I provide some snips below… ●.Cryptocurrency technology comes with poor efficiency and vast energy use; ●.Cryptocurrencies cannot scale with transaction demand, are prone to congestion and greatly fluctuate in value; ●.Overall, the decentralised technology of cryptocurrencies, however sophisticated, is a poor substitute for the solid institutional backing of money; ●.The underlying technology could have promise in other applications, such as the simplification of administrative processes in the settlement of financial transactions. Still, this remains to be tested.” – Comment: So Central Bankers don’t like cryptos. Surprise, surprise, surprise…

New Copyright Law Could Make Current and Future Internet Memes Illegal to Share – by John Vibes – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/06/new-copyright-law-could-make-current-and-future-internet-memes-illegal-to-share.html – “The law, known as the “Copyright Directive,” will be voted on later this month by the European Parliament, and lawmakers suggest that this will protect content creators in the Internet age. However, one of the primary reasons why the internet age has brought us so much innovation and novelty is because of the fact that such a large aggregate of people are able to share their ideas and build upon the ideas of others to create something uniquely special… Article 13 of the proposed bill calls on platform providers such as Google, Facebook, and Web hosts to ‘take measures to ensure the functioning of agreements concluded with rights-holders for the use of their works.’.. This type of policy would create a slippery slope that could very quickly lead to a situation where platforms are required to add a filter for the content that is shared through them, which will restrict the ability for creators to do something as simple as creating a meme or a remix of a song.”

Report: CIA Neither Confirms nor Denies Knowledge of True Identity of Satoshi Nakamoto – by Helen Partz  – https://cointelegraph.com/news/report-cia-neither-confirms-nor-denies-knowledge-of-true-identity-of-satoshi-nakamoto – “Oberhaus reported that while his request with the FBI is still open, he received a reply from the CIA that was a “Glomar response,” which refers to a response to a request of information that “neither confirms nor denies” (NCND) the existence of the requested information. The CIA replied: ‘The request has been rejected, with the agency stating that it can neither confirm nor deny the existence of the requested documents.’ ”

4 Signposts of American Collapse Which Also Occurred in the USSR – “Having witnessed one collapse, and now witnessing another, the one approach I would definitely not recommend is doing nothing and hoping for the best.” – by Dmitry Orlov – https://russia-insider.com/en/politics/4-signposts-american-collapse-which-also-occurred-ussr/ri23855 – “This is not an academic question: those who gauge it accurately may be able to get the hell out ahead of time, while the lights are mostly still on, while not everybody is walking around in a drug-induced mental haze, and mass shootings and other types of mayhem are still considered newsworthy… This hindsight makes it possible for us to spot certain markers that showed up then and are showing up now. The four that I want to discuss now are the following: 1. Allies are being alienated; 2. Enmities dissipate; 3. Ideology becomes irrelevant; 4. Military posture turns flaccid… All of these are plain to see already in the American collapse. As with the Soviet collapse, there is a certain incubation period for each of these trends, lasting perhaps a year or two, during which not much seems to be happening, but when it is over everything comes unstuck all at once.”

US official: Israel behind mysterious Syria airstrike that killed dozens – Washington shunts blame on Jerusalem for attack this week on pro-regime fighters near Iraqi border, after Damascus accuses US-led coalition – https://www.timesofisrael.com/israel-behind-mysterious-syria-airstrike-that-killed-dozens-us-official/ – “An airstrike that killed more than 50 pro-regime fighters in eastern Syria, most of them foreign, was carried out by Israel, not the United States, a US official told CNN Monday… A US source also told AFP: ‘We have reasons to believe that it was an Israeli strike.’.. At a cabinet meeting on Sunday Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned that Israel was ‘taking action — against efforts to establish a military presence by Iran and its proxies in Syria both close to the border and deep inside Syria. We will act against these efforts anywhere in Syria.’ ”

The Coming Deep State Massacre (Part One) – by Dave Hodges – http://www.thecommonsenseshow.com/the-coming-deep-state-massacre-part-one/ – “In a nutshell, this paper will reveal that high profile figures have been involved in treasonous activity against the United States, coupled with illicit criminal behavior at the same time. I have learned that some of these figures are on the verge of being arrested and indicted y the Trump administration. Unlike my Benghazi revelations, I do not stand alone in my discoveries. Without the information I have recently learned, I could have made a strong circumstantial case supporting what is going to be revealed here today. Subsequently, from a credibility standpoint, this is very low risk. However, from a personal safety perspective, it would not be wise to reveal my discoveries and recent conclusions… Part one of this series consists of contextual background which will provide the factual justification to make the allegations against key Deep State operatives in Part two.”

US Attack Syrian Army Position, Death Toll Rises to 40 – by Al-Masdar News – http://21stcenturywire.com/2018/06/18/us-attack-syrian-army-position-death-toll-rises-to-40/ – “In response to these allegations, the Pentagon has denied carrying out this deadly attack in eastern Syria… The Syrian Army has not responded to the attack and will not likely attack the US-backed forces in the region, as this would only escalate the situation and lead to violent confrontation… Furthermore, it is not necessarily clear that the U.S. Coalition carried out the attack, a some pro-government activists have accused the Israeli Air Force of carrying out the airstrikes… Albukamal is a long distance from the Israeli border, but it would be a viable target for their military, given the large presence of Iranian-backed forces near the Iraqi-Syrian border.” Israel has also never attacked the Syrian military this far from their border, so if they were behind this – this would be the first time they have every bombed the Deir Ezzor Governorate.

Mattis: Putin Is Trying To “Undermine America’s Moral Authority” – by Caitlin Johnstone – https://southfront.org/mattis-putin-is-trying-to-undermine-americas-moral-authority/ – “In order to believe that the US has anything resembling “moral authority” you have to shove your head so far into the sand you get lava burns, but that really is what is needed to keep western anti-Russia hysteria going. None of the things the Russian government has been accused of doing (let alone the very legitimate questions about whether or not they even did all of them) merit anything but an indifferent shrug when compared with the unforgivable evils that America’s unelected power establishment has been inflicting upon the world, so they need to weave a narrative about “moral authority” in order to give those accusations meaning and relevance. And, since the notion of America having moral authority is contradicted by all facts in evidence, that narrative is necessarily woven of threads of fantasy and denial.”
