Hotter Days Will Drive Global Inequality – Rising temperatures due to climate change will strongly affect economic growth around the world, making some countries richer and some poorer – by David Rotman, MIT Technology Review – https://www.technologyreview.com/s/603158/hotter-days-will-drive-global-inequality/It’s Just That Simple!

“Everything’s dead!” Marine mystery in Canada’s Novah (sic) Scotia intensifies! Now everything is dying! – http://www.thebigwobble.org/2017/01/everythings-dead-marine-mystery-in.html – “But there are still no answers. On Dec. 15, Fisheries and Oceans Canada announced that tests on the dead herring had produced negative results, meaning no infections or infectious agents had been detected in the small, silvery fish.”

And the Secretary of State Is… A Fracking Pioneer Who Is Now Steering Geopolitical World Order – by Aaron Dykes – http://truthstreammedia.com/2016/12/13/secretary-state-fracking-pioneer-now-steering-geopolitical-world-order/ – “The cabinet, who pack the real power behind the throne, are already gearing up to be a potent gang of corporate cronies and Wall Street insiders. But the ace card was announced today. Trump has finally announced that he will name Rex Tillerson, CEO and chairman of ExxonMobil, as the next most powerful official and highest ranking foreign dignitary in the U.S. government. Oil is big, but Tillerson’s background is awe inspiring in its totality on the balance of the great game. He created a revolution that is now taking down world order… Nonetheless, it is worth stating plainly that President-elect Trump’s reported nominee for Secretary of State is the man who initiated the entire era of fracking, a practice he first pushed for decades ago towards the beginning of his long career with ExxonMobil.”

Italy Urges Europe To Begin Censoring Free Speech On The Internet – http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-12-30/italy-urges-europe-begin-censoring-free-speech-internet – “First it was the US, then Germany blamed much of what is wrong in society on “fake news”, and not, say, a series of terrible decisions made by politicians. Now it is Italy’s turn to call for an end to “fake news”, which in itself would not be troubling, however, the way Giovanni Pitruzzella, head of the Italian competition body, demands the European Union “cracks down” on what it would dub “fake news” is nothing short of a total crackdown on all free speech, and would give local governments free reign to silence any outlet that did not comply with the establishment propaganda… Pitruzzella, head of the Italian competition body since 2011, said ‘EU countries should set up independent bodies — co-ordinated by Brussels and modeled on the system of antitrust agencies — which could quickly label fake news, remove it from circulation and impose fines if necessary.’ ”

Virginia Bill Would Take A Step Towards Supporting Sound Money – by Michael Boldin – http://www.activistpost.com/2016/12/virginia-bill-step-towards-sound-money.html – “By removing the sales tax on some exchanges of gold and silver, Virginia would move towards treating specie as money instead of a commodity. This represents a small step toward reestablishing gold and silver as legal tender and breaking down the Fed’s monopoly on money... ‘This should set the foundation,’ said Mike Maharrey of the Tenth Amendment Center. ‘In a state that has not been very friendly to sound money, we see this as a first step. But if passed into law, people should pressure the legislature – in future years – to eliminate both the sunset clause and the $1000 limit.’ ”

Euthanasia: Last Stop for Depression? – by Kelly Brogan, M.D. – http://www.greenmedinfo.com/blog/euthanasia-last-stop-depression – “Presented to Parliament on October 7th, the biennial report from Belgium’s Federal Commission on the Control and Evaluation of Euthanasia confirms that 124 of the 3,950 euthanasia cases in Belgium involved persons diagnosed with a “mental and behavioral disorder” from 2014-2015. Lethal injections were administered, upon the request of 5 non-terminally ill people with schizophrenia, 5 with autism, 8 with bipolar disorder, 29 with dementia, and 39 with depression, according to the report… Belgium legalized euthanasia in 2002 for patient suffering “unbearably” from terminal or non-terminal conditions that are considered “untreatable”. Accordingly, requests may be fulfilled within one month.”

Doctor Claims “Mysterious Illness” Caused by Marijuana Legalization – by Andrew Pontbriand – http://www.naturalblaze.com/2016/12/doctor-claims-mysterious-illness-caused-by-marijuana-legalization.html – “Now, there is a new enemy of one marijuana and legalization. It is being called cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome, or CHS… In a story ran by CBS yesterday, the claim is that CHS has been discovered seemingly out of nowhere since legalization has increased. In other words, patients that live in states that have legalized marijuana have been presenting to ERs with the “mysterious illness.”.. The article and the study both point to legalization as the root cause of the problem. While it can’t be denied that these patients did exhibit cyclical vomiting, there is no way to definitively link the issue to a law that was passed. In fact, more than anything, this appears to be a hit piece on the legalization effort in an attempt to link a very commonly occurring illness to states that have legalized.”

The Reason the Fed is Raising Rates, and Why It Won’t Work – by Mike Whitney – http://www.counterpunch.org/2016/12/29/the-reason-the-fed-is-raising-rates-and-why-it-wont-work/ – “Why is the Fed creating incentives for US corporations to destroy themselves? Why is the Fed pushing insurance companies and retirement funds into bankruptcy? Why is the Fed raising interest rates when inflation is still well below its 2 percent target?”

Former Prisoners in LA County Women’s Jail Reveal Horrors of Human Experimentation – http://healthimpactnews.com/2016/former-prisoners-in-la-county-womens-jail-reveal-horrors-of-human-experimentation/ – “As part of an apparent human experiment, the women were kept confined, not in a cell block where two people occupy one cell, but in what is described as a “cage.”.. “K” explained that “cage” is the correct term, and that 193 women were transferred into this cage with no bathroom, and no guard, for almost 30 days in the month of December, 2012. They slept on bunk beds, 3 to a bed, and only about 8 inches separating each mattress above, making it difficult to get in and out… She goes on to explain that due to racist attitudes among the prisoners, women would be trying to kill each other inside this cage when they were left alone at night. There was also no heat in this cage, and it was in the winter, where temperatures would drop below 30 degrees at night. The inmates were only give one thin blanket.”

The lie-detecting security kiosk of the future – by Suzanne Finch – http://phys.org/news/2016-12-lie-detecting-kiosk-future.html – “ ‘AVATAR is a kiosk, much like an airport check-in or grocery store self-checkout kiosk,’ said San Diego State University management information systems professor Aaron Elkins. ‘However, this kiosk has a face on the screen that asks questions of travelers and can detect changes in physiology and behavior during the interview. The system can detect changes in the eyes, voice, gestures and posture to determine potential risk. It can even tell when you’re curling your toes.’.. Here’s how it would work: Passengers would step up to the kiosk and be asked a series of questions such as, ‘Do you have fruits or vegetables in your luggage?’ or ‘Are you carrying any weapons with you?’ Eye-detection software and motion and pressure sensors would monitor the passengers as they answer the questions, looking for tell-tale physiological signs of lying or discomfort. The kiosk would also ask a series of innocuous questions to establish baseline measurements so people are just nervous about flying, for example, wouldn’t be unduly singled out… Once the kiosk detected deception, they would flag those passengers for further scrutiny from human agents.”

Couple Forced to Destroy 40yo Pond on Their Own Property Because Govt Owns The Rainwater – by Claire Bernish – http://www.activistpost.com/2016/12/couple-forced-destroy-40yo-pond-property-govt-owns-rainwater.html – “In 2012, Gary Harrington had already been through years of conflict with government officials over illicit water — and provided CNSNews with stronger sentiment on the topic: “When something is wrong, you just, as an American citizen, you have to put your foot down and say, ‘This is wrong; you just can’t take away anymore of my rights and from here on in, I’m going to fight it.’.. That government feels entitled to not only something located on private property, but that people should not be allowed to collect rain, is everything wrong with excessive government — and the overregulation of daily life.” ”

The Black Nobility – by Wes Penre – http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/sociopolitica/esp_sociopol_blacknobil01.htm – “These people earned the title of “Black” nobility from their ruthless lack of scruple. They employed murder, rape, kidnapping, assassination, robbery, and all manner of deceit on a grand scale, brooking no opposition to attaining their objectives. These all have immense wealth. And money is power… The most powerful of the Black Nobility families are located in Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Britain, Holland and Greece in that order. Their roots may be traced back to the Venetian oligarchs, who are of Khazar extraction, and married into these royal houses in the early part of the twelfth century… (Following a great Khazar victory over the Arabs, the future Emperor, Constantine V, married a Khazar princess and their son became Emperor Leo IV, also known as “Leo the Khazar”. The Medici popes, and Pius XII (Eugenio Pacelli) were Khazars, as is the present Pope, John Paul II. Not all Black Nobility are royal houses, and many of the royal families no longer have kingdoms.”

The Two Constitutions of the “United States”: 1st Was Illegally Suspended in Favor of a Vatican “Crown” Corporation in 1871 – by Justin Deschamps & Pao Chang – http://omnithought.org/two-constitutions-united-states-1st-was-illegally-suspended-favor-of-vatican-crown-corporation/5105 – “The article below contains some misleading information, so I encourage you to read this article before or after reading it. For example, the article says, “Instead of having absolute and unalienable rights guaranteed under the organic Constitution, We the People, now have “relative” rights or privileges.”.. If the article is talking about the American people who have agreed to be part of the union (the United States of America), it is misleading because they have never been freed from the Crown. The phrase “We the People” is referring to the authors and creators of the Constitution, not the American people. The evidence of this is the capital letter “P” in the word “People”. By capitalizing it, they are referring to a specific body of people.”

Goldman Sachs Caught Manipulating US Dollar — No One Arrested, Slap on Wrist Instead – by Jack Burns – http://thefreethoughtproject.com/goldman-sachs-found-manipulating-value-dollar/ “Goldman Sachs is just the latest in a series of intentional missteps by investment firms. Allocca writes, ‘The resolution to the case marks the third such order the CFTC has brought over the past two years. The other two were concluded with a $175 million order against Citigroup last May and a $400 million order against Barclays in 2015. The commission has imposed $5.2 billion in penalties in 18 actions relating to foreign-exchange benchmarks.’.. What this Goldman Sachs case represents is the entirely unaccountable nature of the banking elite. The measly $120 million ‘punishment’ is nothing when compared to the billions made off of manipulating the dollar. In fact, such an insignificant fine actually provides an incentive for Goldman Sachs and other corrupt banks to cheat the system.”

School-to-Prison Pipeline Complete — New Law Makes Schoolyard Fights a Felony – by Justin Gardner – http://www.activistpost.com/2016/12/school-prison-pipeline-complete-new-law-makes-schoolyard-fights-felony.html – “On January 1, 2017, the state of Missouri will implement a public school policy sure to accelerate the descent into police state dystopia… The Hazelwood School District put out a memo to parents and guardians stating that, according to Missouri statute, fights at school or on buses will be treated as felonies — which can result in up to four years of prison, fines or probation.”

Yahoo email scan shows U.S. spy push to recast constitutional privacy – http://www.reuters.com/article/us-yahoo-nsa-fourth-amendment-analysis-idUSKBN14A25F – “Civil liberties groups and some other legal experts said the attempt to expand the ability of law enforcement agencies and intelligence services to sift through vast amounts of online data, in some cases without a court order, was in conflict with the Fourth Amendment because many innocent messages are included in the initial sweep… ‘A lot of it is unrecognizable from a Fourth Amendment perspective,’ said Orin Kerr, a former federal prosecutor and George Washington University Law School expert on surveillance. ‘It’s not where the traditional Fourth Amendment law is.’.. But the general counsel of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), Robert Litt, said in an interview with Reuters on Tuesday that the legal interpretation needed to be adjusted because of technological changes.”

Erdogan Meets With 7yo Girl Twitter Blogger “Bana from Aleppo” Exploited By Militants To Spread Propaganda From Aleppo https://southfront.org/erdogan-meets-with-7yo-girl-blogger-exploited-by-militants-to-spread-propaganda-from-aleppo/ – “According to BBC, Erdogan sent a special representative to Syria to take Bana and her family after they left eastern Aleppo via a humanitarian corridor together with militant groups.” – I need a photo opportunity…

Syria – Killing Journos Enabled “Media Activist” Domination – Intended Effect? – by Moon of Alabama – http://www.moonofalabama.org/2016/12/unconventional-warfare-killing-journalists-creates-media-activist-domination.html#more – “The killing or abduction of journalists in a war zone allows their replacement with better controlled and more partisan assets. Just raising the (security) costs for real journalists has such an effect. A news outlet has to pay for professionally made news agency photos or videos. The U.S./UK propaganda operation “White Helmets” has produced hundreds of “gripping” and “emotional” staged rescue operation pictures and videos. It distributes those for free in “ready to be used” high quality. Many news outlets prefer these no-cost pictures even though their veracity is highly questionable… Keeping journalists away from the battle zone by killing or abducting a few of them at the beginning of the conflict helped enormously to increase the effect of the later Information Warfare operation known as “White Helmets” and other similar organizations.”

Expect capital controls to follow.”

Dave Hodges video “The Army and Dissent” 5min 40sec – https://youtu.be/1wejMYJgOoM – covers implications of recent “legislation” that’s passed the “House,” HR 6393 – Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017 which includes language saying that protesters can be deemed “Russian Subversives,” and a new U.S. Army Special Operations Command Study – “Legal Implications of the Status of Persons in Resistance” – https://publicintelligence.net/usasoc-legal-implications/ (226 p. PDF)which lays out 5 levels of resistance to authority culminating in “beligerance.” Apparently, starting with level 3 “rebellion,” essentially the same level of action generally known as Civil Unrest, lethal force (i.e. sniping) can be used on people in rebellion who are identified as “leaders.” – I would say this provides ample reason for a permanent change of status…

Smart Meter Data at Crux of Arkansas Murder Case – by Josh Hart – http://stopsmartmeters.org/2016/08/26/smart-meter-data-at-crux-of-arkansas-murder-case/ – “The use of smart meter data by law enforcement to charge someone with murder is a stark example of where violations of privacy can mean the difference between a life of freedom and a life in prison.”

Cash Is No Longer King: Currency Wars, The Phasing Out of Physical Money Has Begun – by Shaun Bradley – http://www.globalresearch.ca/cash-is-no-longer-king-currency-wars-the-phasing-out-of-physical-money-has-begun/5562582 – “Control and confidence are two of the most important things in the system we live in. Once these digital spider webs have been put into place, the ability for an individual to maintain privacy or anonymity will all but disappear. Only through understanding the subversive actions being taken can people protect themselves from having to put their future in someone else’s hands. The cash that allows free transactions without tax burdens or state scrutiny won’t be around much longer. There will be many rationalizations for a cashless society in the years to come, but without fixing this broken financial system first, this will only ensure that despotism gains an even sturdier foothold.”

British Generals Restore Combat Capability of Syrian Opposition Retreated from Aleppo – from SouthFront.org – https://southfront.org/british-generals-restore-combat-capability-of-syrian-opposition-retreated-from-aleppo/ – “According to media and information from social networks, now the group of military advisors consists mainly of high-ranking officers in the rank of up to brigadier general. The group is guarded by the Elite Special Forces of the UK Armed Forces – the Special Air Service (SAS). Their first task is to evaluate the combat capability of opposition units, escaped from Aleppo, and the condition of their military hardware. Then, they will have to develop a new strategy for the ‘moderate’ opposition and try to unite its military structures under a single command.”

BREAKING: 14 US-Led Coalition Military Advisers Captured by Syrian Special Forces in Aleppohttps://southfront.org/breaking-14-us-led-coalition-military-advisers-captured-by-syrian-special-forces-in-aleppo/ from SouthFront.org – “At least 14 US-led coalition military advisers have been captured by the Syrian Special Forces in a bunker in the city of Aleppo, according to media reports… The event allegedly took place in the morning on December 16, 2016 (Voltaire.net): ‘The Security Council is sitting in private on Friday, December 16, 2016 (yesterday) at 17:00 GMT, while NATO officers were arrested this morning by the Syrian Special Forces in a bunker in East Aleppo.’.. Fares Shehabi, a prominent Syrian Parliamentarian and head of Aleppo’s Chamber of Commerce published the names of the Coalition officers on his Facebook page on the 15th December: (Names and nationalities shown in article – other reports remain firm that British, French and German officers were captured as well)

There is speculation that if this does not get reported in the West that deals are being made behind the scenes.

from Reuters: Putin turned Russia election hacks in Trump’s favor: U.S. officials – At least they did print this, perhaps as evidence of how the Russians lie: “Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told state TV channel Rossiya-24 that he was “dumbstruck” by the NBC report of Putin’s alleged involvement… ‘I think this is just silly, and the futility of the attempt to convince somebody of this is absolutely obvious,’ he said.”

Young girl blows herself up in Damascus police station: state TV (w/video of wreckage) – “Syrian state television said a young girl of about nine years of age blew herself up in a police station in the Midan neighbourhood of Damascus.” – The mind reels at the depths of depravity that would instigate such an act by a child.

Intelligence Agencies Refuse to Brief House Intelligence Committee on Russian Hacking – by Susan Jones – “An attempt by Congress to find out more about Russian interference in the U.S. presidential election hit a brick wall last night, when U.S. intelligence agencies refused a request to brief the House intelligence committee today (Thursday) on the cyber-attacks… Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), the committee chair, was furious: “It is unacceptable that the Intelligence Community directors would not fulfill the House Intelligence Committee’s request to be briefed tomorrow on the cyber-attacks that occurred during the presidential campaign.”

from the Suspiciously-Overheated-Rhetoric desk: WH Spokesman Suggests Trump Was ‘Obviously Aware’ of Russian Hacking During Campaign – by Susan Jones – ” ‘It might be an indication that he was obviously aware and concluded, based on whatever facts or sources he was — he had available to him, that Russia was involved. And their involvement was having a negative impact on his opponent’s campaign. That’s why he was encouraging them to keep doing it.’.. ‘There is one side that was bearing the brunt of that strategy and another side that was clearly benefiting from it.’ ” (Josh Earnest – can that possibly be his real name?)

Videos of ‘Russia’s Shelling & Executions’ Faked by Aleppo’s Militants – Russian MoD – from SouthFront.org – The UN is now reporting bald-faced lies that “83 civilians” summarily executed in East Aleppo by the Syrian Arab Army, including specific numbers of women and children. I have looked at everything coming up in the top page of searches online and on YouTube, and there are no photos, quoted eyewitness testimony, videos, etc. to document this.

Trump – The Russians – The Election: The CIA’s Absence of Conviction – by Craig Murray (Wikileaks editor) – “I have watched incredulous as the CIA’s blatant lie has grown and grown as a media story – blatant because the CIA has made no attempt whatsoever to substantiate it. There is no Russian involvement in the leaks of emails showing Clinton’s corruption. Yes this rubbish has been the lead today in the Washington Post in the US and the Guardian here, and was the lead item on the BBC main news. I suspect it is leading the American broadcasts also.”

14 Signs That There Is A Plot To Use Russia As An Excuse To Steal The Presidency From Trump On December 19th Or January 6th – by Michael Snyder – “Donald Trump could have the election legally stolen from him on either December 19th when the Electoral College casts their votes or on January 6th when a joint session of Congress gathers to count those votes. The establishment is in full-blown panic mode at this point, and they seem to have settled on “Russian interference in the election” as the angle that they plan to use to try to deny Trump the presidency. As you will see below, there is an all-out effort to try to persuade members of the Electoral College that are supposed to be committed to Donald Trump to cast their votes for someone else instead. And if that doesn’t work, the groundwork is being laid for the Electoral College votes to potentially be invalidated when a joint session of Congress meets to count those votes on January 6th. I will explain how that would work later on in this article, but first let’s take a look at 14 signs that indicate that there is a plot to use Russia as an excuse to steal the presidency from Donald Trump…”

Even after decades of incompetence, manipulation, and irresponsibility, the public still grasps to government and the established order like a child learning how to swim. The responsibility that comes with independence has intimidated the entire population into leaving the decisions up to so-called ‘experts.’ It just so happens that those trusted policymakers have an agenda to strip you and future generations of prosperity.”

Am I breaking the law by posting this?: Anti-antisemitism, Thought-control Bill moves through Congress – by Denis R. O’Brien – “The Act, in other words, is an example of the government making a certain class or category of purely mental activity illegal and punishable under (here comes the irony) the Civil Rights Act. This is an attempt at governmental thought-control, or, more precisely, perception-control under the rubric of “civil rights.” But then a lot of political correctness is really a warped manifestation of “civil rights.” ”

Nuclear Deal Opponents Urge Military Confrontation with Iranby the National Iranian American Council, informationClearingHouse.info – “Outlining Trump’s options going forward, Mark Dubowitz of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies said the U.S. must “restore coercion” and recommended direct military confrontation, saying that sanctions alone are not a silver bullet. ‘The next time a Revolutionary Guard attack boat harasses the U.S. Navy, we should sink it, put it in the bottom of the Gulf,’ Dubowitz said. ‘That would be a good start.’ He also noted the possibility of directly targeting Iran’s Revolutionary Guard and Hezbollah proxies that are operating in the Syrian civil war. ‘Remember, right now Syria is a target-rich environment if you want to go after the Revolutionary Guard and Hezbollah, and that’s not just a hypothetical possibility, the Israelis are doing it today…The Israelis are enforcing their red lines, they’re using military force against the Iranians. I think the United States of America could do the same.’ ”

World of possibility: The RTPI’s (Royal Town Planning Institute) chief executive Trudi Elliott tells Simon Wicks how the Habitat III conference has given her a fresh belief in planning’s ability to tackle global challenges – “Indeed, she suggests, the conference could almost be distilled into the single question: “How do you create a city that works for everybody?”. To answer this means tackling a deep structural issue that afflicts countries around the world, says Elliott. We are trying to resolve 21st century problems with 20th century – even 19th century –governance frameworks… ‘This was about us collectively looking at global challenges, comparing and contrasting and coming to a shared agenda about what needs to be addressed.’.. Collectively, that is, except for a significant missing group – UK politicians. Although the UK was well represented by civil society, academia, professional bodies and private business – including a delegation of civil servants from the Department for International Development – there were no ministers or city mayors that Elliott was aware of. This brings the sole downbeat note from Elliott… There will also be three themes of activity in research, campaigning and lobbying: affordable housing, climate change and making city regions work for all. All, she says, are “underlying themes of Habitat III”.”

EXCLUSIVE: ‘President’ Raed Saleh’s Terrorist Connections within White Helmet Leadership – by Vanessa Beeley, 21stCenturyWire.com – “Raed Saleh (photo, right) rose to media glory through his leadership of a group of proclaimed “saviours of all humanity.” Since its formation in late 2013, the White Helmets claim to by Syria’s only viable ‘civil defense’ first responders, selflessly saving some 72,000 lives in only three years – regardless of the victim’s ethnicity, religious convictions or political aspirations. So the promotional literature goes… Over the past year, 21st Century Wire has exhaustively demonstrated the clear links between the White Helmets and the various terrorist groups operating inside Syria, including Al Nusra Front (aka Al Qaeda in Syria) and ISIS. We have also shown that the White Helmets are a part of a primarily British-led shadow state building project inside Syria. The White Helmets were designed to mimic the REAL Syria Civil Defence, established in 1953 and the only real Civil Defence inside Syria officially recognised by the ICDO (International Civil Defence Organisation), based in Geneva.”

‘No plan A’: US unprepared for nuclear crisis as more Fukushima radiation found off West Coast – from RT.com – “Now, marine radiochemist Ken Buesseler and his team have detected the highest level to date, roughly 1,600 miles west of San Francisco. The samples are 50 percent more radioactive than other samples collected so far… The WHOI stressed that this ‘is still more than 500 times lower than US government safety limits for drinking water, and well below limits of concern for direct exposure while swimming, boating, or other recreational activities.’.. However, Buesseler added that even though this is the case, ‘the changing values underscore the need to more closely monitor contamination levels across the Pacific.’ ”

India Confiscates Gold, Even Jewelry, in Raids on Hidden Money – from Mishtalk.com – “Global financial repression picks up steam, led by India. After declaring large denomination notes illegal, India now targets gold… It’s not just gold bars or bullion. The government has raided houses, no questions asked, confiscating jewelry… What this means, unfortunately, is that India’s income tax officers have just won the lottery. During a raid, they can, on the spot, decide whether or not to confiscate a family’s gold holdings. And remember, India has an enormous amount of gold — 20,000 metric tons, much of it inherited. (The rules governing simple searches are different, but few know that.) Rather than cleaning up tax administration, the government has handed tax officials more power than they’ve had for decades. The rich will pay what they need to escape harassment; the rest will suffer.”

As Jihadi Resistance Crumbles In Aleppo Western Powers Play Diplomatic Games – from SouthFront.org – “As is commonly the case in attrition war, the end in Aleppo is coming quickly. Throughout the last 12 hours reports have been pouring in of more and more formerly Al-Qaeda held districts of eastern Aleppo falling to the Syrian army… ‘The Syrian army troops and Hezbollah resistance fighters managed to take control of al-Jadideh district and immediately moved in several directions to beat terrorists back from their positions in al-Kelaseh, Bab al-Maqam, al-Fardos and Karm al-Deada districts after fortifying their positions in vast areas of al-Salehin district… The terrorists have so far lost over 40 districts and neighbourhoods in Eastern Aleppo and are now in control of only very few districts stretching over an area 7 sq/km or less than 10 percent of what was once their territory for 5 years until this last Summer.”

The Coming War on China – by John Pilger, CounterPunch.org – “Like the renewal of post-Soviet Russia, the rise of China as an economic power is declared an “existential threat” to the divine right of the United States to rule and dominate human affairs… To counter this, in 2011 President Obama announced a “pivot to Asia”, which meant that almost two-thirds of US naval forces would be transferred to Asia and the Pacific by 2020. Today, more than 400 American military bases encircle China with missiles, bombers, warships and, above all, nuclear weapons. From Australia north through the Pacific to Japan, Korea and across Eurasia to Afghanistan and India, the bases form, says one US strategist, “the perfect noose”.”

Representative of Syrian Militants Confirms Talks with Russia in Ankara – from SouthFront.org – “The oppositionist added that participants tried to develop a plan to solve the situation in Aleppo on basis of proposals of UN Special Envoy for Syria, Staffan de Mistura, about safe corridors for withdrawal of local residents in exchange for a ceasefire… ‘However, it seems that no agreement was reached, as groups [of militants], besieged in Aleppo, took a firm decision to fight to the end and not to leave [the city],’ the representative of the Syrian National Coalition said… He also noted that militants in Aleppo took their decisions regardless of the “command outside of the city,” including representatives in Turkey.”

Does What Happened to This Journalist at the US-Canada Border Herald a Darker Trend? – by Hugh Handeyside, ActivistPost.com – “Although Ed clearly identified himself as a journalist on his way to Standing Rock, the CBP officers detained him for more than six hours and subjected him to multiple rounds of intrusive interrogation… They questioned him at length about his work as a journalist, his prior professional travel in the Middle East, and dissidents or “extremists” he had encountered or interviewed as a journalist. They photocopied his personal papers, including pages from his handwritten personal diary… They also asked Ed to unlock the three mobile phones he uses to communicate in different locations worldwide. Ed told them he couldn’t agree to do that because of his ethical obligation as a journalist to protect his confidential sources. The officers took the phones, and when they returned them several hours later, the tamper tape covering the phones’ SIM cards was altered or missing, suggesting that the officers had removed and possibly copied the cards.”

Cashless Society: India Bans Currency Notes Sparking Chaos At Banks – by John Vibes, ActivistPost.com – “The government in India has recently made a move to ban large currency notes, continuing the push towards a cashless society, an effort that the country has been working on for decades. 500 and 1,000 rupee notes were banned throughout the country, which may seem like large currency notes, but they exchange for just a few American dollars, and represent 85% of the cash transactions in the country… The ban sparked a run on the banks in India this week, with customers forming massive lines at banks attempting to get cash notes out while they still could… Banks then shut down on Wednesday, and limits were imposed on ATM withdrawals.”

On Trump’s Victory – by Gilad Atzmon, Gilad.co.uk – “It shouldn’t take us by surprise that half of the American people would eventually react.

Nusra On The Run – Trump Induces First Major Policy Change On Syria – by Moon Of Alabama, InformationClearingHouse.info – ” Ash Carter is, together with John Brennan, the major anti-Russian force in the Obama administration. He is a U.S. weapon industry promoter and the anti-Russia campaign, which helps to sell U.S. weapons to NATO allies in Europe, is largely of his doing. He saw al-Qaeda in Syria as a welcome proxy force against Russia… But Obama has now shut down that policy. We are not yet sure that this is for good but the above Washington Post account is not the only signal: ‘The U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) took action today to disrupt al-Nusrah Front’s military, recruitment, and financing operations. Specifically, OFAC designated four key al-Nusrah Front leaders – Abdallah Muhammad Bin-Sulayman al-Muhaysini, Jamal Husayn Zayniyah, Abdul Jashari, and Ashraf Ahmad Fari al-Allak – pursuant to Executive Order (E.O.) 13224, which targets terrorists and those providing support to terrorists or acts of terrorism.’..

Spectrum Health, an entity in this story whose presence never made any sense, provided the following statement: ‘Our experts have conducted a detailed analysis of the alleged internet traffic and did not find any evidence that it included any actual communications (no emails, chat, text, etc.) between Spectrum Health and Alfa Bank or any of the Trump organizations. While we did find a small number of incoming spam marketing emails, they originated from a digital marketing company, Cendyn, advertising Trump Hotels.’..

The U.S./Turkey Plan For “Seizing, Holding, And Occupying” Syrian Territory In Raqqa – by Brandon Turbeville, ActivistPost.com – “So why the sudden interest in Raqqa? It’s fairly simple. The United States sees clearly that the Syrian military and its Russian allies are going to liberate Raqqa soon enough and the U.S. does not want to suffer another public relations setback. A defeat for ISIS is thus a humiliation for the United States. That fact alone should raise some eyebrows… Regardless, the United States would like to have its own “victory” in Raqqa before the Syrians and the Russians can have theirs. If the SDF is able to “take” Raqqa, the U.S. will then be able to shout from the rooftops that America has liberated Raqqa and defeated ISIS in its own capital… The U.S. also has another goal in Raqqa – the theft of more Syrian territory by using its proxy forces going by the name of the SDF. Whether or not ISIS proper is in control of Raqqa is merely a secondary concern for the United States. If the SDF succeeds in imposing control over the city and the province, then the West will have succeeded in cementing control over the area in the hands of its proxy terrorists once again, but with yet another incarnation of the same Western-backed jihadist fanaticism. The U.S. can then use the “moderate rebel” label to keep Russia and Syria from bombing the fighters who merely assumed a position handed to them, albeit through some level of violence, by ISIS.”

Eyewitnesses captured a bright flash, after which the lights went out.”

China passes ‘draconian’ cyber security law: Controversial bill is criticised for violating freedom of speech – by Agence France Presse via Dailymail.co.uk – “The law, which was approved by the National People’s Congress Standing Committee, is largely focused on protecting the country’s networks and private user information… But it also bans internet users from publishing a wide variety of information, including anything that damages ‘national honour’, ‘disturbs economic or social order’ or is aimed at ‘overthrowing the socialist system’… A provision requiring companies to verify a user’s identity effectively makes it illegal to go online anonymously… Companies providing online services in the country must provide ‘technical support and help’ to public security organs investigating ‘crimes’, which would normally include those related to speech.”

He reportedly told her that the baby was now in state custody.” (emph. added)

Understanding Aleppo – by John Wight, CounterPunch.org – “Keeping the Syrian and Russian military forces bogged down there is key to allowing the US-led coalition to complete the operation, currently underway, to take the Iraqi city of Mosul from ISIS, before continuing an east-west advance across the Syrian border to take Raqqa… This will allow Raqqa to be established as the de facto capital of so-called moderate Syrian forces, who will be able to re-group there, presumably under cover of a US-imposed no-fly zone, to become a counterweight to the authority of the Assad government in Damascus. Such a development would also enable the establishment of a permanent US military presence in a country that has long been key to Washington’s objective of dominating the region.”

FALSE FLAG RED ALERT: Media plotting with Clinton operatives to gun down democrats and blame it on Trump – by Mike Adams, NaturalNews.com – “Now, I fear, they are taking that false flag operation to a whole new level. It’s now obvious to me, after talking with the Washington Post reporter, that leftists operatives are going to pretend to be Trump supporters and then open fire on crowds of Clinton supporters using automatic weapons. Leftist propaganda rags like the NYT, Boston Globe and WashPost are readying their articles to blame Trump supporters such as myself, Dave Hodges and Alex Jones, declaring us guilty of using “inflammatory rhetoric” any time we discuss the proper role of the Second Amendment in defending democracy against criminal government regimes… This is all being orchestrated in advance… scripted like everything else coming out of the (fake) leftist media. It may even involve a staged false flag attack at an actual Clinton rally where CNN cameras will be sure to cover the bloody mayhem. The anti-Trump narrative will be unleashed within minutes, consisting of a barrage of queued stories and the universal condemnation of Donald Trump who will be accused of “signaling” his supporters to carry out the act that was actually carried out by paid terrorists working for the democrats.”

Russian Defense Ministry: ‘Moderate Opposition’ Mines Corridors for Exit of Civilians from Aleppo – from Southfront.org – ” ‘Twice, on September 15 and on September 16, units of the Syrian Army began to withdraw troops from the Castello Road. However, the US could not organize a withdrawal of armed opposition groups from the Castello Road, and units of the government forces returned to their initial positions. We opened seven checkpoints for the exit of civilian population and a corridor for the exit of terrorists with weapons. However, the so-called ‘opposition’ mined all the passages for the exit from Aleppo and organized repressions against citizens, trying to leave the city. Moreover, battlefield commanders of opposition units have refused to allow the UN humanitarian convoy, which was heading to the eastern part of Aleppo, to enter the city,’ the RIA Novosti news agency quoted the words of Antonov.”

A NOBEL LIE: CNN’s Claim That ‘White Helmets Center in Damascus’ Was Hit by a Barrel Bomb – by Patrick Henningsen, 21stCenturyWire.com – “CNN and a number of other mainstream corporate outlets ran an incredible story claiming that, ‘White Helmets group says aid center hit by barrel bomb.’.. This headline story ran all day along the bottom of the TV screen in CNN’s news ticker, and claimed that: ‘A barrel bomb struck a center used by Syria’s civil defense volunteers, known as the White Helmets, in the country’s capital of Damascus, the group said.’.. ‘The group tweeted that the center and vehicles at the scene were destroyed Wednesday, and some volunteers injured in the attack.’.. ‘We rush to the scene of attacks to save the greatest number of lives in the shortest possible time and to minimize further injury to people and damage to property,’ the group says on its website… CNN’s sole source for this headline story, is the White Helmets (tweet). To date, no other news source can corroborate this incident.” (emph. added)

Hillary Clinton PERSONALLY Arranged For Chinese Vaccine Manufacturers to Avoid US Government Scrutiny… – by Tim Bolen, BolenReport.com – “The official publication of the World Health Organization (WHO) writes in their Bulletin an article called “China Enters the Global Vaccine Market.” … The article points points out that Hillary Clinton, in 2014, played the NUMBER ONE role in allowing Chinese vaccine manufacturers to completely bypass US vaccine testing requirements, and thereby allowing direct from the factory to American children WITH NO QUALITY CONTROL in between… From the article: ‘The Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) has been working with Chinese suppliers to support their applications for WHO prequalification for several vaccine candidates for the last two years, says Joshua Chu, CHAI’s Director, Vaccines Markets.’.. Over eighty (80) percent of all prescription drugs imported for American use are already made in China. There, they are manufactured, counted out into plastic pill bottles for distribution to US pharmacies, cotton stuffed on top, a seal put in place, a cap screwed on, and the plastic bottles are put into cardboard boxes. Then they are shipped to the US Big-Pharma factory where those plastic bottles are removed from the cardboard boxes, dumped on an assembly line where the LABELS are put on the bottles.”

Al-Qaeda must be saved, as top Washington Officials are ready to attack Syria without UN resolution – by Alex Christoforou, TheDuran.com – “If only, everyday Americans could know that their government are now interlocked, brothers in arms, with Al Qaeda and ISIS in Syria, in an effort to wipe out a secular and stable middle east government, and hand over the keys of the country to Wahhabi, Saudi sponsored, butchers… The reality of what America has become is hard to stomach. News coming in that top Washington officials are discussing striking positions of the Syrian military without a UN Security Council resolution is the real war crime… The war hawks are working out a plan to bomb air force runways in Syria, with missiles fired from US and US-coalition planes and ships… One administration official who is to take part in the discussions told the war ready Washington Post: ‘One proposed way to get around the White House’s objection to striking the Assad regime without a UN Security Council resolution would be to carry out the strikes covertly and without public acknowledgment.’.. The CIA and the Joint Chiefs of Staff, represented in the Deputies Committee meeting by Vice Chairman Gen. Paul Selva, are now pressing for more “kinetic” options: ‘There’s an increased mood in support of kinetic actions against the regime. The CIA and the Joint Staff have said that the fall of Aleppo would undermine America’s counterterrorism goals in Syria.”

kerry-the-accuserSyrian, Russian actions beg for war crimes investigation – Kerry – from RT.com – ” ‘Russia and the regime owe the world more than an explanation about why they keep hitting hospitals, medical facilities, children, women,’ Kerry said after meeting with the French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault on Friday. ‘These are acts that beg for an appropriate investigation of war crimes.’ Kerry called the actions of the Syrian military and the Russian air force ‘beyond accidental’ and ‘a targeted strategy to terrorize civilians.’.. Kerry prefaced his remarks about “war crimes” by claiming that the Syrian forces hit “another hospital” in Aleppo overnight, killing 20 people and wounding 100. There has been no confirmation of the attack, whether from government or rebel sources.”

Al Gore Declares Climate War on Donald Trump – by James Delingpole, Breitbart.com – “Withdrawing from the Paris climate agreement, though it would largely be a symbolic gesture because the agreement is not legally binding and therefore meaningless, would represent a bravura act of trolling; but rescinding the Clean Power Plan would cut costs to business and benefit consumers, while opening up federal lands to the oil and gas industries would drastically increase the fracking boom which has brought America prosperity and increased energy independence… Those who worry about the environmental costs should be aware that the EPA’s clean air policies are a) based on the junkiest of rigged junk science and b) that the difference it makes to “global warming” – if any – will be immeasurably small. By the end of the century, Bjorn Lomborg has calculated, America’s Clean Power Plan will reduce the world’s increase in temperatures by a spectacular 0.004 degrees C. Yes, that’s four thousandths of a degree!”

EU, US policies behind crisis behind Syria conflict: France’s Marine Le Pen – from PressTV.ir – “French National Front Party Leader Marine Le Pen says the EU is responsible for the crisis in Syria, because it has been trying to bring down the government instead of battling terrorism… ‘You’ve done everything to bring down the government of Syria, throwing the country into a terrible civil war, while accusing Russia which is actually fighting Daesh,’ she said while addressing the European Parliament in Strasbourg on Wednesday… Russian air force fighters have been striking armed terrorists, including the Daesh and Jabhat Fateh al-Sham terror groups, across Syria at the official request of the government of President Bashar al-Assad since September 2015… She stressed that the EU and US policies had directly contributed to Syria’s current crisis, which has claimed the lives of some 400,000 people since March 2011.”

Fracking Industry’s New Plan? Prosecute Those Who Push Drilling Bans – by Lauren McCauley, ActivistPost.com – “Alternately, Moody told the Post-Gazette that he’s been “exploring” the concept of criminal prosecution for years but finally found a fitting statute to test it out… ‘It’s called official oppression,’ the newspaper explained, ‘and makes it a second degree misdemeanor for a public official to deny or impede someone’s rights or privileges with the knowledge such actions are illegal. The penalty is up to two years in prison and a fine of up to $5,000.’.. Moody specifically cited the recent action taken by Grant Township as an “egregious example” that should be challenged. In the face of ongoing litigation over its fracking ban, the Pennsylvania community last spring adopted the country’s first municipal charter establishing a local bill of rights codifying environmental and democratic rights… At the time of its adoption, noted climate activist Tim DeChristopher, called it ‘one of the boldest moves to stop the natural gas industry’s attacks on our communities, climate, and democracy.’.. But Moody claims that the charter, which was drafted by the Franklin County-based nonprofit Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund (CELDF), is illegal. If a judge agrees with him, Moody could use that decision ‘to say municipal officials know what they’re doing is not legal when they deny gas companies the right to operate within their borders. From there, other options could surface,’ such as filing a private criminal complaint against or impeaching local officials, the Post-Gazette reported.”

Iraq Warns Of “Regional War” If Turkey Does Not Withdraw Troops – by Tyler Durden, ZeroHedge.com – “Turkey’s parliament voted last week to extend its military operation in Iraq and take on “terrorist organizations”, a reference to Kurdish militants and Islamic State. Responding to the Turkish decision, Iraq’s parliament condemned the Turkish vote and called for Turkey’s 2,000 troops to leave, Reuters reported… An adamant Turkey has refused to comply and insists that its military is in Iraq at the invitation of Masoud Barzani, president of the Kurdish regional government, with which Ankara maintains solid ties. Most of the troops are at a base in Bashiqa, north of Mosul, where they are helping to train Iraqi Kurdish peshmerga and Sunni fighters… Turkey’s deputy prime minister, Numan Kurtulmus, said the deployment had become necessary after Islamic State’s seizure of Iraq’s second city, captured in 2014. ‘Neither Turkey’s presence in Bashiqa nor its operation right now in Syrian territory are aimed at occupying or interfering with the domestic affairs of these countries.’.. Iraq, however, disagrees: “We have asked the Turkish side more than once not to intervene in Iraqi matters and I fear the Turkish adventure could turn into a regional war,” Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi warned on TV. “The Turkish leadership’s behavior is not acceptable and we don’t want to get into a military confrontation with Turkey.” Iraq’s central government in Baghdad also says it never invited such a force and considers the Turkish troops occupiers… As a result, Iraq too, on Wednesday, summoned the Turkish ambassador to Baghdad to protest what it said were “provocative” comments from Ankara about the troop deployment.”

pensive-attack-the-rooskiesFrom the Meet-The-New-Boss Desk: Mike Pence: Confront the Russian Bear, Impose a No-Fly Zone in Syria – by Kurt Nimmo, ActivistPost.com – “About Aleppo and Syria, I truly do believe that what America ought to do is immediately establish Safe Zones so that families with children can move out of those areas, work with our Arab partners real-time, right now to make that happen. The provocations by Russia need to be met by American strength. If Russia continues to be involved in this barbaric attack on civilians in Aleppo, the US needs to be prepared to strike military targets of the Assad regime, to prevent them from this humanitarian crisis taking place in Aleppo… There is a broad range of other things we ought to do as well. We should deploy a missile defense shield to the Czech Republic and Poland, which had Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama pulled back on… We need to marshal the resources of our allies in the region and end the immediate — we need to act and act now to get people out of harm’s way… The safe zones would have to be, as the senator said, there is a framework that has been recognized by the international community, but the United States needs to be prepared to work with others in the region to create a route for safe passage, and to protect people in those areas, including with a no-fly zone.” (emph. added)

nyt-editors-ready-4-warThis Is Not a Drill: NYT Editorial Board Lays Groundwork For War With Russia. Can’t Wait! – The Gray Lady beats her war drum for the 10,000th time. Thanks, but we’ll pass – by Riley Waggaman, RussiaInsider.com – “Because the editorial has an illogical, nonlinear storyline — much like a bad Tarantino film — we’ll cut directly to the juiciest war cry: ‘President Obama has long refused to approve direct military intervention in Syria. And Mr. Putin may be assuming that Mr. Obama is unlikely to confront Russia in his final months and with an American election season in full swing. But with the rebel stronghold in Aleppo under threat of falling to the government, administration officials said that such a response is again under consideration.’.. But the major takeaway is that Putin is the tyrannical head of an outlaw state, hell-bent on slaughtering civilians and restoring the former glory of the Soviet Union. The solution, as the Editorial Board hints, is “direct military intervention” in Syria — which of course would lead to all-out war, and probably your humble Moscow correspondent being vaporized. Mission Accomplished… We keep beating around the bush, so we’re just going to come out and say it: The New York Times’ retelling of what has happened in Syria over the last four years is crystalline claptrap… The United States is, once again, the aggressor nation calling foul when things don’t go according to plan.”

5 Reasons Why Belief in Authority is the Most Dangerous Superstition – by Gary ‘Z’ McGee, WakingTimes.com – “Let’s get something straight, here at the outset. There’s nothing wrong with authority itself. It’s the belief part that messes everything up. Anyone can claim authority. But such authority only matters if others believe in it… I can claim that I’m an authority on unicorns, but I better have the credentials to prove it. And it would also help if unicorns existed. But the point is this: If enough people “believe” that I’m an authority on unicorns, and they “believe” that I have dissected a unicorn and revealed the magical quality of its insides that causes it to shit rainbows, then I’ll not only have violated truth, I’ll have violated the minds of others and taken advantage of their ignorance. But, and here’s the rub, it’s their fault for not questioning my so-called authority. As Albert Einstein said (himself an authority in the field of physics), ‘Unthinking respect for authority is the greatest enemy of truth.’ So if we’re correct to question Einstein’s revolutionary theories, then we’re exponentially correct to question my unicorn theories… Respecting a prestigious authority, or taking into consideration important knowledge gleaned by someone who is an authority in a particular domain of knowledge is fine. It’s even okay that sometimes we allow people to violate our minds. We allow artists to do it all the time. No, it’s when we “believe” in authority, when we blindly follow a perceived authority, that things go wrong.”

Secretary of State Kerry Admits War on ‘Legitimate’ Syrian Government is Illegal – from SputnikNews.com – ” ‘We don’t have a basis (to intervene), our lawyers tell us, unless we have a UN Security Council Resolution which the Russians can veto or unless we are under attack from folks or unless we are invited in. Russia is invited in by the legitimate regime,’ said Kerry acknowledging the Assad government’s stature under the doctrines of international law… The Secretary of State implied that this violation of international law would only apply if the United States engaged in a full-on war to oust Assad rather than leading a coalition engaged, purportedly, in counter-terrorism strikes and called into question the legality of Russia’s actions despite confirming that Moscow is involved in the conflict at the invitation of the “legitimate government.”.. ‘The problem is that the Russians don’t care about international law, and we do,’ said Kerry attempting to claim the position of moral and legal superiority despite laying out evidence directly to the contrary. In fact, the Syrian government has repeatedly called on the United States to be evicted from the country’s airspace most recently following the attacks in Deir Ez Zor against a Syrian Army base that led to the death of 62 soldiers, injured 100 others and “paved the way” for a major offensive by Daesh (ISIS) terrorists with the assault and subsequent offensive occurring almost in tandem.”

white_helmets-2-at-onceWHITE HELMETS: “Save Aleppo” Protest Proves How Easy it is to Dress Up Actors as “War Victims” – by Tony Cartalucci, 21stCenturyWire.com – “The recent coordinated “Save Aleppo” protests held across Europe and North America, perhaps revealed just how transparently fabricated and fictional the “White Helmet’s” work really is. During one protest, photos retweeted by the official “White Helmet’s” Twitter account showed actors dressed up as “war victims,” covered in fake dust and blood, appearing almost indistinguishable from the alleged “victims” the “White Helmets” regularly “save” in Syria… The protest, staged in European streets far from the Syrian conflict, even included children – likewise covered in fake dust and blood – cradled in the arms of adults, posing with despondent looks upon their faces. Also part of the staged scene were actors dressed like the “White Helmets” themselves.”

The war against Syria: both sides go to “plan B” – by TheSaker.is – “The way the US doctrine mandates to impose a no-fly zone is pretty straightforward: it begins with an intensive series of USAF and USN cruise missile strikes and bombing raids whose aim is to disable the enemy air defenses and command and control capabilities. At this stage heavy jamming and anti-radiation missile strikes play a key role. This is also when the Americans, if they have any hope of achieving a tactical surprise, will also typically strikes at enemy airbases, with a special emphasis on destroying landed aircraft, runways and fuel storage facilities. This first phase can last anything between 48 hours to 10 days, depending on the complexity/survivability of the enemy air defense network. The second phase typically includes the deployment of air-to-air fighters into combat air patrols which are typically controlled by airborne AWACS aircraft. Finally, once the air defense network has been destroyed and air supremacy has been established, strike fighters and bombers are sent in to bomb whatever can be bombed until the enemy surrenders or is crushed… In Syria, this ideal scenario would run into several problems.”

Syria – The U.S. Propaganda Shams Now Openly Fail – by MoonOfAlabama.org – “As the facts accumulate how long can the New York Times and Washington Post keep up with their propaganda claims. One has to admit, they really try their best. Unfortunately for them, their best is only mediocre. The NYT today found out that Vladimir Putin Relishes His Role as Disrupter. How does the NYT know what Putin “relishes”? The reporter did not ask Putin himself. But he did ask some knowledgeable experts with insight into Putin’s inner mind and those assured the author that this is indeed the case. They know exactly how Putin feels. They are Richard Haass, the president of the Council on Foreign Relations, James R. Clapper Jr., the director of national intelligence, James B. Comey, the F.B.I. director and Robert Kagan, leading voice of of the neocons and Clinton promoter. Some “experts”… Add that to dozens of stories on how ‘Russia indiscriminately bombs civilians/hospitals/bakeries in east-Aleppo’ but never hits any “rebels” because none occur in these stories at all. A recent NYT piece of that kind had 14 “voices” in it. Eight belonged to various propagandists associated with the “White Helmets”, four were “western” diplomats, one Syrian government official and a Russian spokesperson were quoted at the end. No Russian military and no one from west-Aleppo, where by far most people in the city live under government protection and daily rocket hail by the “rebels”, were even asked.”

dusty_boy_omranHillary Clinton’s ‘Presidency’ has Already Begun as Lame Ducks Promote Her War on Syria – by Diana Johnstone, 21stCenturyWire.com – “This propagandistic heartstring tugging is aimed at distracting from U.S. involvement in a long-term joint criminal enterprise to overthrow a government that indeed did not discriminate against people because of “how they pray”, and replace it by fanatics who are ready to behead people because of “how they pray”… An infantilized public will believe that “geopolitics” and “national sovereignty” are just big words that don’t mean anything. An infantilized public will believe that when the United States goes to war, it is all about protecting little children from their bad, mean dictators, whose only aspiration is to “bomb their own people”. They will believe that the world out there is Little Red Riding Hood, threatened by the Big Bad Wolf, and that there really is a Santa Claus… It will never occur to an infantilized public that the war to destroy Syria has been planned for years – even though someone like General Wesley Clark revealed this years ago. Or that it is carried out to eliminate Israel’s enemies, keep Arabs busy killing each other, and incidentally help Saudi Arabia spread its Wahhabite fanaticism. No, that will never occur to them.”

Putin Ups the Ante: Ceasefire Sabotage Triggers Major Offensive in Aleppo – by Mike Whitney, CounterPunch.org – “Obama’s de facto rejection of the ceasefire has created the conditions for a decisive military defeat in Aleppo. The fate of the CIA-trained “moderate” terrorists hunkered down in East Aleppo is not that different from that of General George Armstrong Custer at the Little Bighorn who was surrounded by a superior military force and summarily slaughtered to the man. This is the option Pentagon warlord, Ash Carter chose when he decided to sabotage the joint military implementation agreement and go rogue. Carter opposed the ceasefire deal and in doing so signed the death warrant for hundreds of US-backed extremists who chances for survival are growing slimmer by the day… According to recent reports, pro-government forces are advancing on a number of fronts. At the same time, the Syrian and Russian air forces have intensified their bombing campaign reducing large swathes of the city to rubble and killing several hundred Sunni militants. While the jihadists have performed better than many had expected, their fate is no longer in doubt. The cauldron is encircled, their front lines are collapsing, their supply lines have been severed, and the end is in sight… Aleppo will fall and the US-backed effort to topple the Assad government using a proxy army of Islamic extremists will fail…”

The foreign officers who were killed in the Aleppo operations room were directing the terrorists’ attacks in Aleppo and Idlib.”

EXCLUSIVE: The REAL Syria Civil Defence Expose Nato’s ‘White Helmets’ as Terrorist-Linked Imposters – by Vanessa Beeley, 21stCenturyWire.com – “For the REAL Syria Civil Defence you call 113 inside Syria. There is no public number for the White Helmets. Why not? Why does this multi-million dollar US & NATO state-funded first repsonder ‘NGO,’ with state of the art equipment supplied by the US and the EU via Turkey, have no central number for civilians to call when the “bombs fall”?.. Before we introduce the real Syria Civil Defence, who are Syria’s real ICDO certified civil fire and rescue organisation, let’s first take a closer look at the imposters; terrorists in white hats, and agents of war – NATO’s pseudo ‘NGO’ construct, embedded exclusively in terrorist-held parts of Syria… We’re told that the White Helmets routinely scale the walls of collapsed buildings and scrambling over smouldering rubble of bombed out buildings to dig a child out with their bare hands. Of course, never without a sizeable camera crew and mobile phone carrying entourage in tow… So who, and what exactly are the White Helmets?.. ‘Founded in 2013, the White Helmets, officially called the Syria Civil Defense, are often the only emergency first-responders available in rebel-held areas of Syria and claim to have saved more than 58,000 lives.’ ~ The Slate”

Russian, Syrian Air Forces did not strike UN aid convoy in Aleppo w/Video – Russian MoD – from RT.com – “Russian and Syrian warplanes did not launch airstrikes on an aid convoy that was attacked en route to Aleppo, the Russian Defense Ministry said. The ministry added that only the militants who control the area had information regarding the location of the convoy… ‘Russian and Syrian warplanes did not carry out any airstrikes on a UN humanitarian aid convoy in the southwest of Aleppo,’ Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said in a statement Tuesday… The Russian Center for Reconciliation said that it had used drones to accompany the convoy because its route passed through territory controlled by the rebels, but only to a certain point… ‘Around 13:40 Moscow time (10:40 GMT) the aid convoy successfully reached the destination. The Russian side did not monitor the convoy after this and its movements were only known by the militants who were in control of the area,’ Konashenkov added… The Defense Ministry spokesman said that the Russian military had been looking at video footage from the scene and that there was no sign of the convoy being targeted by shells or an airstrike… ‘We have closely studied the video footage from where the incident took place and we did not find any signs of any ammunition having hit the convoy. There are no craters, while the vehicles have their chassis intact and they have not been severely damaged, which would have been the case from an airstrike,’ Konashenkov said… ‘All of the video footage demonstrates that the convoy caught fire, which strangely happened almost at exactly at the same time as militants started a large scale offensive on Aleppo.’(emph. added)

War on Cash Turns to $20, $50, and $100 Bills – by Clint Siegner, ActivistPost.com – “Getting rid of large bills is a terrific way for them to herd people down a blind alley and pick their pockets. Bankers will grab handfuls of fees and deposits they wouldn’t otherwise get because people can no longer hold or transact with cash. Fed officials can impose negative interest rates, robbing even more of the value from everyone’s savings. And bureaucrats in government can swipe everyone’s ability to transact privately using off-the-grid cash… At least Rogoff is willing to admit the REAL REASON cash is a problem for central bankers who want to impose negative rates. You just have to read much further down, past the pictures of shady characters and contraband: ‘Unfortunately, the existence of cash gums up the works. If you are a saver, you will simply withdraw your funds, turning them into cash, rather than watch them shrink too rapidly. Enormous sums might be withdrawn to avoid these losses, which could make it difficult for banks to make loans – thus defeating the whole purpose of the policy’… It won’t take long for drug lords to figure out that while an airliner full of small bills is impractical, a briefcase full of small gold bars can work just fine. Nor will all savers stand for paying their bank to hold deposits when they can convert those savings to precious metal instead. It is easy to predict these sorts of unintended consequences – the very reasons why central planners such as Rogoff inevitably fail.”

Peter Thomson, President of the UN General Assembly, pledged to take forward the commitment of the membership ‘to begin a process leading to a global compact on migration, as well as to support a global compact on refugees. I will be urging Member States to maintain their high levels of ambition throughout these processes, and to always reach for the higher ground. The fate of millions of refugees and migrants rests with us.’.. Mogens Lykketoft, President of the 70th session of the UN General Assembly, emphasized that all countries must do their part in responding to the global challenge. ‘The desperation and suffering of people in flight tugs at our collective conscience, and compels us all to act compassionately to forge a global response to what is clearly a global challenge,’ he said… Calling on all partners to support implementation of the Declaration’s commitments, Mr. Lykketoft also welcomed the Secretary-General’s campaign to counter xenophobia and intolerance. He said: ‘In the face of a changing world, it is vital that we do not give in to fear, but that we strive to maintain our principles and common humanity.’ ”

U.S. Troops ‘Forced To Run Away’ From US-backed Syrian Rebels – by Raf Sanchez, InformationClearingHouse.info – ” Video footage appears to show US commandos fleeing a Syrian town under a barrage of abuse and insults hurled at them by fighters from the American-backed Free Syrian Army (FSA) rebel group… The video appears to be the first evidence of US special forces cooperating with Turkish troops in their battle against Islamic State (Isil)… The incident illustrates the complex web of alliances and enmities in Syria, where many of America’s allies are fighting each other and some rebel groups that receive US support still harbour strong anti-American sentiments… The footage shows a crowd of rebel fighters in the town of al-Rai near the Turkish border, which was captured from Isil by Syrian rebel groups with the backing of Turkey. Turkey, which launched a military incursion into Syria in late August, has been backing the FSA… The fighters scream anti-American chants as a column of pick-up trucks carrying US commandos drives away from them… ‘Christians and Americans have no place among us,’ shouts one man in the video. ‘They want to wage a crusader war to occupy Syria.’.. Another man calls out: ‘The collaborators of America are dogs and pigs. They wage a crusader war against Syria and Islam.’..

Assad’s Death Warrant – by Mike Whitney, InformationClearingHouse.info – “But the United States is not doing the right thing in Syria. Arming, training and funding Islamic extremists — that have killed half a million people, displaced 7 million more and turned the country into an uninhabitable wastelands –is not the right thing. It is the wrong thing, the immoral thing. And the US is involved in this conflict for all the wrong reasons, the foremost of which is gas. The US wants to install a puppet regime in Damascus so it can secure pipeline corridors in the East, oversee the transport of vital energy reserves from Qatar to the EU, and make sure that those reserves continue to be denominated in US Dollars that are recycled into US Treasuries and US financial assets. This is the basic recipe for maintaining US dominance in the Middle East and for extending America’s imperial grip on global power into the future… The war in Syria did not begin when the government of Bashar al Assad cracked down on protestors in the spring of 2011. That version of events is obfuscating hogwash. The war began in 2000, when Assad rejected a Qatari plan to transport gas from Qatar to the EU via Syria.”

Liberal Media Avoiding It – by Alice Greene, PunchingBagPost.com – “Fowler knows that if Clinton’s health prevents her from continuing as a presidential candidate and the party hasn’t come up with a backup plan, there is virtually no chance the Dems will win the election… ‘There should be a concerted, unified effort on behalf of the president and the Democratic leaders in the House and the Senate and from the officials of the DNC as well – I think unanimity would be absolutely critical,’ says Fowler. ‘The quicker that unanimity develops, the easier and better the process.’.. Editor’s note: Tim Kaine or Joe Biden are the obvious choices and might have a shot if the timing is right. But either would self destruct when Bernie claims the crown. Warren would self destruct as soon as she opens her mouth, she’s just that bad.”

Assange: Up to 100,000 pages of Clinton documents to come – by Rudy Takala, WashingtonExaminer.com – ” ‘We have tens of thousands, possibly as many as a hundred thousand, pages of documents of different types, related to the operations that Hillary Clinton is associated with,’ the WikiLeaks founder said in a radio interview with Sean Hannity. ‘There are some, several … in response to the DNC publications, a lot of people have been inspired by the impact, and so they have stepped forward with additional material.’.. Assange said his organization released internal DNC documents just before the party’s national convention because that was when staff finished vetting them, but that he hoped to have the newest documents out well before November.”

CDC Wants to Expand Power to Eliminate Measles — What You Need To Know and Do Now – by Barbara Loe Fisher, Mercola.com – “Just read the hundreds of public comments already posted on the CDC’s website by outraged citizens. After you do that, please post your own comment too, BEFORE October 14, 2016, and contact your members of Congress, who may not be aware of what the CDC is trying to do… Signing an online petition or “liking” an article on Facebook is not enough. You need to make direct contact by phone, email or in person with the people who represent you in Congress and express your sincere concerns… The CDC’s proposed change to the Public Health Service Act is not about health. It is about taking away civil liberties that keep Americans safe from tyranny. It is about getting permission to tag, track and force individuals against their will to be injected with biologicals of known and unknown toxicity today, so there will be no limit on which individual freedoms the state can take away in the name of the greater good tomorrow… The question is: Will American people let them get away with it? Will you let them get away with it? Or will you stand with the growing citizen army of enlightened Americans who are defending the human right to freedom of thought, speech, conscience, religion and informed consent in this great country of ours?.. You know what needs to be done. Stand up and protect your civil liberties now, so you will never have to wish you had when you still had the freedom to do it. Go to NVIC.org and NVICAdvocacy.org to learn more. It’s your health. Your family. Your choice.”

$1 Trillion Spent on US Police State Since 9/11: If They “Hated Our Freedoms,” They Must Love Us Now. – by Justin Gardner, 21stCenturyWire.com – “No one really knows the extent of the “hidden world, growing beyond control” of the surveillance state. Six years ago a Washington Post investigation found: ‘Some 1,271 government organizations and 1,931 private companies work on programs related to counterterrorism, homeland security and intelligence in about 10,000 locations across the United States… ‘An estimated 854,000 people, nearly 1.5 times as many people as live in Washington, D.C., hold top-secret security clearances… ‘In Washington and the surrounding area, 33 building complexes for top-secret intelligence work are under construction or have been built since September 2001. Together they occupy the equivalent of almost three Pentagons or 22 U.S. Capitol buildings – about 17 million square feet of space.’ “

Huffington Post’s Coverage of Donald Trump – by Eric Zuesse, RINF.com – “Stein’s and Terkel’s criticisms #s 2-6 were equally deceptive and distorting, though in different ways. For example, Trump didn’t actually “blame victims of military sexual assault,” nor imply that women who are raped are to blame for anything at all. And his statement that he opposed the invasion of Iraq is supported by an early statement that he had made suggesting that the U.N. inspections of Iraq should be completed before there should be an invasion, but he didn’t want to be publicly opposing Bush’s policy at the time (January 2003: “because perhaps shouldn’t be doing it yet and perhaps we should be waiting for the United Nations [WMD inspections to be completed first — which Hillary at the time strenuously opposed as being any sort of precondition for invading], you know”). But our article here is already long enough; so, we’ll just leave it at that.”

BREAKING: Israeli Warplane and Drone Shot Down Over Golan Heights by Syrian Air Defences – by Vanessa Beeley, 21stCenturyWire.com – “Is it a coincidence that this Israeli invasion of Syrian airspace come after a powerful statement from Syria’s President, Bashar Al-Assad, discussing reconciliation, while visiting recently liberated Daraya, and promising that Syria will re-take all terrorist held areas? Particularly when one considers that it is effectively Al Nusra [Al Qaeda in Syria]that has occupied the illegally Israeli claimed areas of the Golan Heights. The same Al Nusra that is being treated in Israeli hospitals and that has never fired a shot in Israel’s direction… Israel is denying that it’s aircraft was downed by Syrian air defenses, according to the Independent: ‘Israel has denied the Syrian government’s claim to have shot down an Israeli fighter jet and drone at the start of a fragile seven-day truce in the country’s civil war.’.. Israel has a history of denying its military losses or downplaying its defeats. The fact that the Military Command in Syria has made a public statement concerning their air defence reaction against this Israeli incursion into its airspace, particularly over the long disputed Golan Heights, demonstrates that Syria has reached the end of its patience with Israeli aggression and lawlessness… This is potentially a game-changer. It is a response to US and Israeli hegemony in the region that cannot be ignored.”

yellen-lagard-got_emCentral Banks Are Now Ready To Launch Their “Brave New World” – by Brandon Smith, ActivistPost.com – “Be very wary when elites and international financiers mention “global reset,” or a “brave new world,” or a “new world order.” What they are talking about is not a program that is in your best interest. What they are talking about is the deliberate creation of chaos; a slow burning calamity that can be exploited to derive the benefits of even more centralization and even more power… They will call it random. They will call it coincidence or fate or even blame it all on their ideological opponents. In the end, they will eventually call it a natural progression of events; a social and financial evolution. They will call it inevitable. None of this will be true. There is nothing natural about a totalitarian framework — it is a machine that is carefully crafted piece by piece, maintained by the hands of a select few tyrants and fed with the labor, sacrifice and fear of the innocent… The only solution is to expunge the parasites from our fiscal body. These institutions and the people behind them should not exist. Most if not all of our sociopolitical distress today could be cured if a “brave new world” meant wiping the slate clean and dispelling financial elites and central bankers into a bottomless pit.”

US Presidential Visit to Laos is About Confronting China – by Tony Cartalucci, Journal-NEO.org – “However, what the US lacks in geopolitical substance, it can make up for with “soft power” geopolitical coercion. Part of the responsibilities of faux-NGOs operating within Laos is to apply pressure on the government to make unsound policy decisions favoring US interests at the expense of both Laos’ and Asia’s regionally… President Obama’s participation in the YSEALI summit is part of this – indoctrinating young Asians, including those from Laos – to integrate themselves into the networks and institutions serving Western interests rather than those of Laos and Asia. Upon completion of the YSEALI’s programs, these young people will find themselves as part of America’s growing networks across Asia, opposing development in Laos, hampering constructive ties with Laos’ neighbors, and instead, favoring and promoting policies including the implementation of the TPP, “open markets,” US-ASEAN military integration, and other compromising policies that serve Washington’s interests at the expense of Laos, its sovereignty, development, and its future… As awareness grows regarding the true nature of US “soft power” and the role it plays in coercing nations behind the scenes, its effectiveness will likely wane. With no alternatives able to compete with the current level of investment and engagement Laos’ immediate regional neighbors have committed, the US faces the prospect of its “primacy” in Asia being further undermined. Then again, for a North American nation to declare “primacy” over Asia to begin with is somewhat problematic and an issue the whole of Asia needs to address more openly and directly.

Lindsey_SnellCIA “Journalist” Spy With Al-Qaeda Arrested In Turkey – Media Acquiesce – Endanger Real Journos – from MoonOfAlabama.org – “NBC just mentions that “U.S. personnel were dispatched”. That sounds like a bureaucrat drove to the border to help the “journalist” to enter Turkey. But that “U.S. personnel” consisted of two armed drones and several military helicopters which flew in the area over several days while the exfiltration of Snell was ongoing. Has anyone ever heard of any journalist for whom the U.S. military would launch such an extensive operation? The Turkish media had made no secret of what happened. As Hurriyet reported on August 7: ‘A female intelligence agent from the United States has been saved by Turkish Armed Forces (TSK) soldiers after a two-day operation on the Syrian border, according to a report. Drones and helicopters participated in the operation to save the agent, who had been wounded in Syria… Two U.S. helicopters landed in a village in the Yayladağı district of the southern province of Hatay on Aug. 5, prompting locals to call officials and report the landing… Is there any real freelance “journalist” who embeds with Jabhat ql-Nusra and for whom the U.S. would “dispatch U.S. personnel” in the form of helicopters and Hellfire armed drones? No. It is obvious that there was some very “special interest” for Snell and unlike the usual “western” media Hurriyet has no problem reporting that…”

Jeh_Johnson-Big_BroPOLICE STATE END-RUN: DHS Wants Control of U.S. Elections – from 21stCenturyWire.com – “Here’s a classic case of Problem, Reaction, Solution… How far will the federal government go to dismantle the US Constitution?.. Now that electronic voting is all-pervasive in the US, the next problem becomes ‘cyber security’ – which the government is referring to as the next burning national security issue… Enter the relatively new and prohibitively expensive Department of Homeland Security (DHS), which ironically (or not) was created by one George W. Bush – a president who was installed into power not by the popular vote, but by a dubious Supreme Court decision in that very same 2000 US Presidential Election. Now DHS head and Obama appointee Jeh Johnson, is nudging towards the idea of the domestic military force taking over the election process. Johnson claims that US elections are part of the country’s vital infrastructure and therefore it must be under the control of an already bloated federal agency.”

Internal polarization leading Israel to civil war, former Mossad chief says – from PressTV.ir – “Former Mossad director Tamir Pardo has warned that growing polarization in the Israeli society is leading up to a civil war… Pardo’s Tuesday comments were his first public ones since he stepped down as the Israeli spy agency’s director earlier in the year: ‘If a divided society goes beyond a certain point, you can end up, in extreme circumstances, with phenomena like civil war. To my regret, the distance [until we reach that point] is shrinking. I fear that we are going in that direction,’ he said… He refrained from assigning blame to any single leader or political party or further elaborating on the manner of divisions he was referring to.”

California goes after companies boycotting Israel – from PressTV.ir – “Lawmakers in the US state of California have passed a law that aims to punish companies partaking in a worldwide boycott campaign against Israel… The legislation, which was approved on Tuesday, seeks to prevent state government agencies from awarding contracts of $100,000 or more to companies that support the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement… The California State Assembly voted 60-0 to approve the law, after it was passed in the state Senate in a 34-1 vote on August 24… The original draft of the law included a ban on companies boycotting Israel, but was faced with backlash from some lawmakers who said it violates the constitutional right to boycott… To satisfy those critics, the legislators approved a watered down version of the bill that required companies to guarantee that their sanctions against foreign entities do not violate California civil rights laws… ‘The bottom line is that the state should not subsidize discrimination in any form,’ said Democratic Assemblyman Richard Bloom, the author of the bill… California Governor Jerry Brown has 12 days to approve or veto the measure.”

Quantum Computing – Artificial Intelligence Is Here – “It feels like an Altar to an Alien God…” – 19min37sec

It’s Time To Abolish The DEA – by Brandon Turbeville, NaturalBlaze.com – The Drug Enforcement Agency has long targeted Americans with the most non-sensical and ridiculous type of propaganda in order to convince them that the agency itself is actually useful and not the scourge of a civilized nation that it truly is. After all, if you are going to continue to launch a full-on military operation and establish a police state against adults who choose to consume specific plants, throwing otherwise peaceful people into cages, ruining their lives, and even killing them in the process, you need some rather extreme and immediate reason to continue to exist… For this reason, the DEA – in addition to fleets of aircraft, military uniforms, machine guns, and other forms of war gear – has been funded liberally for over forty years for the purpose of waging war against the same taxpayers who are forced to fund it. But in addition to the hardware, the DEA is also tasked with convincing Americans the drug war is just and that it must be won, much less waged. Indeed, the DEA needs to justify its robbing, pillaging, and killing of American citizens to the same American citizens who the DEA will rob, pillage, and kill.”

SYRIA: The US Peace Council Responds to Attacks from Within Anti-War Movement – by Vanessa Beeley, 21stCenturyWire.com – “Terry Burke goes so far as accusing all independent journalists and others in the peace movement — all those whom she repeatedly mocks as “anti-imperialists” — as racists who are “behaving like imperialists,” by not listening to the “progressive Syrian voices” and “imposing their point of view on poorer countries voices.”.. But she is putting herself in the same “imperialist” boat by taking an anti-Assad position as an American — no American has any right to decide Syria’s future — and ignoring the voice of the majority of Syrian people… The true progressive opposition forces are inside Syria, not in the ISIS-“liberated areas,” and our delegation has met with many of them… They have many disagreements with the Assad government, but strongly believe that they should join with their government against foreign attack and invasion, like any patriot would. The “progressive Syrian voices” that Terry Burke is identifying with do not have the monopoly on truth. She would be well served if she listened to the other opposition forces within Syria as well.”

Oh My, Oh My!!!! The CDC Whistleblower Story Just Keeps Getting Better… – by Tim Bolen, BolenReport.com – “Many of you have probably already heard that CDC whistleblower Dr. William Thompson has written a letter, and posted it on his lawyer’s website, VERIFYING Brian Hooker’s complaints. The Big Pharma “spin” machine is operating at full power – but their efforts to contain the whole story are laughable. The story is growing, appropriately, as it should, for there is no denying that the CDC got caught with their pants down, and, consequently, their credibility is gone. Fini. The whistleblower, in his letter, verified EVERYTHING Hooker said happened. Read William Thompson’s letter hereBut now – the new revelations…”

Manufactured Civil Unrest: Leaked Docs Prove The Real Goal Is Federalizing America’s Police

TOPICS:Civil UnrestGeorge SorosHackingMelissa Dykes, ActivistPost.com – “The document is aptly called, “Police Reform: How to Take Advantage of the Crisis of the Moment and Drive Long-Term Institutional Change in Police-Community Practice.” Breitbart reported: ‘The document states that the Foundations’ U.S. Programs (USP) was seeking to use “this moment” – meaning the so-called crisis in policing following high profile shootings and charges of racism – to “create a national movement” for police reform… ‘We are gaining a better understanding of these efforts in order to determine how best USP can use this moment to create a national movement. We have already had a set of preliminary conversations with about a dozen key stakeholders and will undertake a field scan to map the areas of work currently underway to advance police reform, including an assessment of the redundancies and gaps in work, and opportunities for collaboration. As we proceed, we will engage the funder network we helped to establish, the Executive Alliance on Men and Boys of Color, which now includes forty foundations.’.. Creating a “national movement” sounds expensive… could that be what the $33 million Open Society gave Black Lives Matter was for?”

Kaine-Foot-in-MouthIrony Alert: Clinton’s VP Pick Urges Full Disclosure of Health and Foreign Entanglements of Candidates – Umm, does Kaine know that applies to his running mate, too? – by Trey Sanchez, TruthRevolt.com – “Democratic vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine stuck his foot in his mouth on Tuesday when he lectured Republican nominee Donald Trump on the importance of candidates being forthcoming about financial and health-related information. Which is interesting, seeing as Hillary Clinton has proven she’s the queen of obfuscation on such matters… Speaking at a rally in Erie, Pennsylvania, Kaine said voters have the right to know the truth about whom they are voting for, especially when it comes to the highest office in the land: ‘You want to know if we’ll disclose our finances, so you can understand how we’ve managed our own household or business and see if we owe anybody anything. We want to make sure that candidates aren’t involved in any foreign entanglements that could impact our national security, and we want to know that they’re in good enough health to perform their duties.’(emph. added)

NSA Whistleblowers: NSA Hack Was Likely An Inside Job – by WashingtonsBlog.com – “The mainstream press is accusing Russia of being behind the release of information on NSA hacking tools… Washington’s Blog asked the highest-level NSA whistleblower in history, William Binney – the NSA executive who created the agency’s mass surveillance program for digital information, who served as the senior technical director within the agency, who managed six thousand NSA employees, the 36-year NSA veteran widely regarded as a “legend” within the agency and the NSA’s best-ever analyst and code-breaker, who mapped out the Soviet command-and-control structure before anyone else knew how, and so predicted Soviet invasions before they happened (“in the 1970s, he decrypted the Soviet Union’s command system, which provided the US and its allies with real-time surveillance of all Soviet troop movements and Russian atomic weapons”) – what he thinks of such claims… Binney told us: The probability is that an insider provided the data.”

Court bans Feds from prosecuting medical marijuana users – by David Gutierrez, NaturalNews.com – “A federal court has ruled that the Department of Justice (DOJ) is not permitted to use any of its money to prosecute people who are in compliance with state medical marijuana laws… ‘If the federal government prosecutes such individuals, it has prevented the state from giving practical effect to its law,” wrote Judge Diarmuid O’Scannlain of the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals… Twenty-five states allow the use of marijuana for medical purposes, while another four states plus the District of Columbia permit it for medical and recreational use. Citizens of another nine states will vote in November on whether to legalize recreational marijuana use… Ending the war on medical marijuana?: Yet, although the majority of states now allow regulated use of marijuana, the federal government has regularly carried out raids against people who are simply growing, selling or using medical marijuana in compliance with the laws of their states... In 2014, Congress passed a budget rule prohibiting the DOJ from using its funds to prevent states ‘from implementing their own state laws that authorize the use, distribution, possession, or cultivation of medical marijuana.’ The passage of this rule had no influence on the DOJ’s practices, however… Now the Ninth Circuit has ruled that if the DOJ uses its budget to carry out any enforcement action against people who are following state medical marijuana laws, the department will have violated the congressional order.”

Mandatory Vaccination in CA: Let’s School a Federal Judge – by Jon Rappoport, NaturalBlaze.com – “Federal Judge Dana Sabraw is overseeing a lawsuit against mandatory vaccination in California… So far, Sabraw has denied a petition to suspend mandatory vaccination for school children while the case moves forward… He believes tradition and history are on the side of forced vaccinations. That’s because he doesn’t know what he’s talking about. Or he’s just making it up out of thin air… As the LA Times reports: ‘U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw in San Diego wrote that state Legislatures have ‘a long history of requiring children to be vaccinated as a condition to school enrollment, and for as many years, both state and federal courts have upheld those requirements against constitutional challenge.’.. I don’t see how Judge Sabraw’s opinion could be more ridiculous… Why? Because ‘the long history’ he refers to is quite different… So…let’s look at one of the mandatory vaccines that’ll be injected into children in California, whether their parents agree or not. I’m talking about the DTP shot—diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis (whooping cough). Let’s give Judge Sabraw a history lesson. You know: actual history… Buckle up.”

How America’s top corporations are stealing $376bn (and counting) from their workers – from RT.com – “The S&P 500’s largest corporate pension funds are stealing a staggering $376 billion from their workers by underfunding their pension funds, new figures from Citibank reveal… The top 25 of these plans accounted for $225bn of that underfunding… Citigroup’s Chief US Equity Strategist Tobias Levkovich warned, ‘Pension under-funding continues to be a major issue for S&P 500 constituents as very respectable equity market gains over the last seven years have not substantially alleviated pension pressures.’.. “Major issue” is something of an understatement as the S&P 500 corporate pensions have been underfunded since before the start of the Great Recession, hitting $376bn last year, a 22% increase from the 2008 level of $308bn.”

Hillary Clinton Statement On Her Health – 2min9sec

Hillary Clinton’s Extreme End Game: Tags Trump Supporters as “Delinquents” and “Hate Groups” – by Dr. Binoy Kampmark, GlobalResearch.ca – “On Thursday, Clinton pushed further into the field of righteous indignation, traducing extremists all over as the bane of politics. Trotting out of her stable of suggestions was the testy problem of race, that permanent malady of US political and cultural history… Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, she claimed, had direct links to the “alt-right” movement, a closet of white nationalists accused of anti-Semitic leanings mixed with a heady dose of misogyny… ‘From the start, Donald Trump has built his campaign on prejudice and paranoia,’ she told those at Truckee Meadows Community College in Reno, Nevada. ‘He is taking hate groups mainstream and helping a radical fringe take over the Republican Party. His disregard for the values that make our country great is profoundly dangerous.’.. Not wanting to stop there, the Democratic nominee insisted that Trump had been keeping bad company. White supremacists had been courted; legal actions against Trump had been mounted ‘for housing discrimination against communities of colour.’.. The picture of Trump as serial internet trawler, seeking its “dark reaches” for “dark conspiracy theories” while embracing ‘a long history of racial discrimination’ could only be attributed to a form of attack that often stumbles on the turn: outing your opposite number as a dedicated nutter. ‘This is not a normal choice between a Republican and a Democrat.’ “

Did US fire 500-pound bombs on civilians in Syria? – from PressTV.ir – “On July 19, US A-10 and B-52 aircraft dropped 500-pound bombs on the village of Tokhar in Aleppo countryside. When the dust from the attack cleared, at least 95 people were killed, The Washington Post reported on Friday… Some rights groups, however, put the death toll at 200 after those who were wounded succumbed to their injuries… While US officials claimed the attack killed a large group of Daesh terrorists, Syrian activists said Tokhar victims have mostly been men, women and children seeking shelter from the war, The Washington Post report said… According o reports compiled by Airwars, which is a Britain-based group that tracks civilian fatalities, as many as 203 civilians were killed, between 70 and 80 of whom were named, including at least 11 children. Among the victims was a man named Suleiman al Dhaher, who was killed along with at least five of his children and grandchildren, including two infants, according to the reports… Some reports said the area hit by the US airstrikes was a school occupied by displaced Syrians.”

The Order has been given: Shoot Down Russian Jet within 72 Hours – from FriendsOfSyria.wordpress.com – “There are now strident public statements by the US that it will ‘defend its forces in Syria.’.. These strident public statements are not a warning to Russia, the statements are laying the public paradigm for going to war with Russia… According to Intelligence sources who spoke to SuperStation95 on condition of anonymity, the consensus thinking inside the Beltway is that Russia will not take any action whatsoever against the US or its proxy forces if a Russian jet is shot down, for fear of outright war. Intelligenceanalysts disagree fiercely with that belief… Inside Intelligence circles, it is understood that the United States is operating inside Syria without permission of the Syrian government and without any mandate from the United Nations. The Intel folks believe a deliberate US shoot-down of a Russian jet will cause a reaction for which the US is not prepared: The Syrian government will give the US 48-72 Hours to remove all its forces from Syria or face attack.”

NY Times calls on Google to rig search results to hide Hillary’s health problems – by J. D. Heyes, NaturalNews.com – “As reported by Breitbart News, one of the Times’ technology columnists, Farhad Manjoo, made the ‘suggestion’ after former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani made reference to Clinton’s obvious health problems on a Sunday morning cable news program… ‘Google should fix this’: ‘Go online and put down, ‘Hillary Clinton illness,’ and take a look at the videos yourself,’ Giuliani recently said on Fox News, during a discussion about how sick Clinton actually is… Manjoo’s advice is for Google, the world’s number one search engine, to “fix” the issue by covering up results that may hurt the Democratic nominee – on the basis anyone who believes she is sick is just a conspiracy theorist and doesn’t deserve honesty in search results… ‘Google should fix this. It shouldn’t give quarter to conspiracy theorists,’ Manjoo tweeted.”

Saudi Prince Demands US Ground Troops Remove Bashar al-Assad – by Kurt Nimmo, ActivistPost.com – ” ‘It would be a mistake for the United States, or Great Britain… to send in ground troops and overthrow the Assad regime,’ Obama told the BBC in April… However, around the time Obama made this remark the United States sent 250 ground troops into Syria—in direct violation of that country’s national sovereignty—under the pretense of fighting the Islamic State… The Saudis scoffed and said the move was little more than “window dressing.”.. Asked about a remark by Iran that Saudi Arabia’s participation in the coalition bombing of Syria is illegal, al-Faisal said Iran’s troops on the ground “killing Syrians” is illegal… The Saudi prince failed to mention that Russia, Syria, Iran, and Iraq formed a coalition to fight the Islamic State in September 2015. The United States was offered to join the coalition but its response was “unconstructive,” according a statement by Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov… As a former diplomat, al-Faisal is undoubtedly aware of the invitation by Syria, but then we have to keep in mind he was talking to an American television audience that knows virtually nothing about the real situation in Syria… CBS did not clarify.”

The Ankara-Tehran-Moscow Coalition – by Pepe Escobar, InformationClearingHouse.info – “Moscow has every reason to be quite cautious regarding myriad aspects of Erdogan’s pivoting. After all the Turkish military has been part of NATO for decades. As it stands, there’s no evidence Moscow and Ankara are looking at the same post-war Syria. But if we’re talking about the future of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), then it starts to get really interesting… Turkey is already a “dialog partner” of the SCO, while Iran may become a full member as early as next year. Moscow is certainly envisioning Ankara as a valuable ally in the wider Sunni world, way beyond a role in repelling Salafi-jihadis in Syria. With Ankara and Tehran also talking serious business, this could eventually spill out into a serious debunking of the alleged apocalyptic Sunni-Shi’ite sectarian divide, which is the only Divide-and-Rule strategy spun and deployed non-stop by the US, Israel and the House of Saud… It’s this enticing SCO-enhancing possibility that’s freaking Washington out big time. Russia pivoting East, Turkey pivoting East, Iran already there, and China now also actually involved in a stake in post-war Syria, that’s a geopolitical reconfiguration in Southwest Asia that once again spells out the inevitable; Eurasia integration.”

Hollande-Neutralize_AssadUS-NATO’s Objective is “Regime Change” in Syria. France’s President Hollande Calls for the “Neutralization” of Bashar al Assad – from GlobalResearch.ca – ” ‘Regime Change’ in Syria is the ultimate objective, coupled with the US-Turkey-NATO invasion and military occupation of Northern Syria… The end goal is the installation of an Islamic State. Ultimately what is contemplated is the conquest of the entire country and the surrender of the Damascus government… French President Francois Hollande calls for the “neutralization’ of Syria’s president Assad as ‘a precondition for peace’: ‘We must reduce the terrorist influence without maintaining Assad. The two are bound up together,.. ‘We must create a political transition in Syria, it’s a necessity.’.. He laid out three conditions for resolving the crisis — the first of which was the “neutralization” of Assad… The second was to offer ‘solid guarantees to all the moderate opposition forces, notably the Sunnis and Kurds, and to preserve state structures and the unity of Syria.’.. The final condition, which he said would be “decisive”, was to bring together regional actors with a stake in the conflict… ‘I’m thinking of the Gulf countries, I’m thinking also of Iran. I’m thinking of Turkey which must get involved in the fight against Daesh (an alternative name for the Islamic State group) and resume the dialogue with the Kurds,’ Hollande said.”

National Park Service Official: Continent Belongs to Native Americans – ‘I Hear the Pain’ – by Penny Starr, CNSNews.com – “Carol McBryant, the relevancy, diversity, and inclusion strategist for the National Park Service, said on Thursday that the continent belongs to indigenous people and that the most meaningful work she’s done during her 30 years with the federal agency is to “sit and listen” to them and “hear the pain” of their mistreatment… ‘The most meaningful work that I think I have ever done is to sit and listen to the people who this continent belongs,’ McBryant said at a discussion and film screening at the National Archives in Washington, D.C., to mark the 100th anniversary of the park service.” (emph. added) – My comment: Can we say “Agenda 21” aka “The Wildlands Project?” Oh, I guess not…

A woman’s gruesome hanging shocked Tibet — but police have silenced all questions – by Simon Denyer, WashingtonPost.com – “She was 27, a kind, hard-working woman who supported her family by herding yaks and harvesting caterpillar fungus, a prized health cure, on the high grasslands of Tibet. Last October, Tsering Tso was found hanged from a bridge in a small town near her home… Her family and local villagers gathered outside the police station in Chalong township to demand answers: She had last been seen in the company of a local Buddhist priest and two policemen… The authorities insisted it was suicide. Family and friends suspected foul play and demanded an investigation. That night and the following morning, an angry crowd stormed the gates of the police station, smashing windows, according to local police… The authorities’ response was brutal, revealing much about the crackdown taking place in Tibetan parts of China and showing how unrest and unhappiness is increasingly viewed as dangerously subversive.”

‘Public are the enemy’ of British foreign policy – expert – from RT.com – “One example Curtis cites as an example of the UK’s deceptive tactics is the military’s contribution to Syrian rebel groups… ‘The Ministry of Defence is hiring contractors to produce videos, photos, radio broadcasts and social media posts branded with the logos of rebel groups, to ‘effectively run a press office for opposition fighters.’ Materials are being circulated in the Arabic broadcast media and posted online with no indication of British government involvement,’ he says… He adds to this a long history of what he terms as ‘simply lying to parliament and the public‘ in order to carry out operations in Syria… One example of this was when Defence Minister Earl Howe claimed in July of 2015 that parliamentary approval would be sought to extend bombing into Syria when, in fact, Britain had already been doing so by embedding UK pilots with foreign militaries for some time… In Curtis’ view, the policy of deceiving the public was confirmed when the government subsequently argued: ‘Ministers authorise the embedding of UK personnel on deployment with host forces. It has been long-standing practice not to announce such deployments.‘.. Among other issues, Curtis also questioned the UK’s commitment to a negotiating a ceasefire in Syria… Although the UK has publicly backed a UN-brokered truce, its actions tell a different story, he said… ‘As prominent analyst Avi Shlaim has documented, Western insistence that Syrian president Assad must first step down sabotaged first Kofi Annan’s and then Lakhdar Brahimi’s UN efforts to set up a peace deal,’ Curtis argues. ‘It strongly appears as if Britain wants neither side to win or lose.’.. ‘So Britain is playing with fire, seeing the people of region as it always has – as expendable unpeople in its geopolitical games,’ Curtis warned.”

U.S. Renews Calls For Attack On Syria Air Force, U.K. Calls For Safe Zones, Military Action – by Brandon Turbeville, ActivistPost.com – “The new U.S. Commander of American troops in Iraq and Syria stated on August 22 that he will “defend” the Special Operations Forces aggressively deployed by the United States to Northern Syria if Syrian warplanes or Syrian artillery again strike areas where U.S. troops are located… During an interview with CNN, Lt. Gen. Stephen Townsend stated from his headquarters in Baghdad that ‘We’ve informed the Russians where we’re at (note: nice syntax, Gen. Townsend) … (they) tell us they’ve informed the Syrians, and I’d just say that we will defend ourselves if we feel threatened.’.. The hypocrisy and deception of the United States government on this issue has now reached a staggering level. An accurate translation of what Townsend is saying is that ‘We have funded proxy terrorists to destroy the Syrian government. Those terrorists started losing so we deployed troops to support them and forge new brigades of terrorism with Kurds. Despite the fact that we deployed these troops against international law, violated Syria’s national sovereignty, as well as the wishes of the majority of the world, we will play the victim if those troops are injured during the course of Syria’s battle with the terrorists we support. We will then attack Syrian planes as a response to attacking terrorists whom our soldiers are assisting in attacking the Syrian government.’ In other words, the U.S. position is that ‘We will attack you whenever we want, however we want, and everyone and everything else in the world be damned. And if you dare respond, we will play the victim, drum up sympathy and good ol’ fashioned ‘Murican patriotism back home so that we can launch a full-scale war upon your country.’(emph. added) – Priceless!

Turkish tanks roll into Syria, pushing Islamic State out of key border town – by Humeyra Pamuk and Jeff Mason, Reuters.com – “Syrian rebels backed by Turkish special forces, tanks and warplanes entered one of Islamic State’s last strongholds on the Turkish-Syrian border on Wednesday, in Turkey’s first major U.S.-backed incursion into its southern neighbor… A column of at least nine Turkish tanks crossed into Syria with the group of largely Arab and Turkmen rebels to drive Islamic State out of Jarablus and surrounding villages. A Reuters reporter at the border witnessed intense bombardments, with palls of black smoke rising around the town… President Tayyip Erdogan said the operation was targeting both Islamic State and the Kurdish PYD party, whose gains in northern Syria have alarmed Turkey. Ankara views the PYD as an extension of Kurdish militants fighting an insurgency on its own soil, putting it at odds with Washington, which sees the group as an ally in the fight against Islamic State… ‘This morning at 4 a.m. (0100 GMT) an operation started in northern Syria against terror groups which constantly threaten our country, like Daesh (Islamic State) and the PYD,’ Erdogan said in a speech in Ankara… U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, who arrived in Turkey, a key NATO ally with its second biggest armed forces, on a pre-planned trip hours after the operation began, tried to soothe Turkish concerns about Kurdish territorial gains in Syria.”

Dollar Disaster Looms? China and Russian Currencies Break Away – from TheDailyBell.com – “Money is changing fast and the US dollar is going to crash… Here’s an excerpt from yet another recently published article (translated from the Russian) describing how the ruble may now evolve (here): ‘We must nationalize the ruble. What does it mean? It means that we must separate the internal markets from the external ones… ‘Thus, the first step for Russia is secession from the IMF and others similar institutions designed to keep the entire world in bondage. The dollar noose must be cut… ‘Now the amount of printed rubles will not be determined by how many dollars we have but by the actual needs of our economy…. ‘We have absolutely no need in the central bank in its current form, but we do need a financial regular. Under any regime, it was the Treasury that performed this function. Let it remain the same now regardless of the official name. It may continue to be called the Central Bank. If the essence is changed, there is no need in changing plaques.”

Stealth Euthanasia: Health Care Tyranny in America – (Hospice, Palliative Care and Health Care Reform) – by Ron Panzer, LewRockwell.com – “There is one practice that is sweeping through hospices and being very widely used: terminal or palliative sedation. This involves permanently sedating the patient, allowing the patient to dehydrate and die. It looks outwardly peaceful as the patient is made to sleep in a medically-induced coma, but the patient’s death is the result. [Sad. But true.]… The top level policymakers have decided that people will die in hospice or palliative care units and that they will be pushed into hospice through a wide variety of means. $3.6 billion saved in one year. Think that motivates the government? That’s nothing compared to the savings when the people placed into hospice doubles in the years to come. That’s the plan. If patients are hurried along toward death, the savings skyrocket! [To make matter even worse, it will not make much difference in ever-rising medical care costs.]… The “culture of death” that promotes imposing death through euthanasia, assisted-suicide or the Third Way in hospice (terminal sedation) views the pro-life movement as “the enemy.” In fact, they view traditional American society as “the enemy,” something to be manipulated and defeated so that their goals can be achieved. It is clear that traditional American values are pro-life. The Declaration of Independence mentions specifically the right to life!”

Russia’s Middle East Breakthrough… No Wonder Washington’s Grouchy – by Finian Cunningham, InformationClearingHouse.info – “Washington is losing all credibility in the strategically pivotal region because it has for too long pivoted between criminal schemes and duplicity. Even traditional partners and clients can see this unedifying spectacle of sordid US conduct. Feckless, unreliable American power is something to disdain, if not dread… Russia has stood firm with its allies, and, as Syria attests, has carried out the mission it said it would, without mendacity or intrigue. That integrity is surely worthy of respect among allies, non-aligned states and foes alike. For too long Russia witnessed the Americans carve up and mutilate the Middle East with wars and subversions, from Afghanistan to Iraq, Libya and Syria. Syria has marked a historic turning point in Washington’s depredations in the Middle East… And Russia has emerged as a serious countervailing force to be reckoned with. Fortunately.”

Could Trump Pull Off a Post-Party Coalition? – by Pepe Escobar, SputnikNews.com – “And that comes with an all-important military angle as a surefire selling point. As Trump’s backers outline it, ‘the Pacific Ocean cannot be used for transporting the vital and essential components of our military industrial complex, for in the event of war with Russia or China their advanced silent submarines equipped with advanced anti-ship weapons will block all of our ocean transport, collapsing our military industrial production in any war with catastrophic consequences. These component factories for Intel and others must be repatriated at once through currency adjustments or tariffs.’.. So Trump should hammer the message that all new bank credit must be tied to rebuilding destroyed US industries, ‘either by ending currency rigging or applying tariffs.’ Bank credit, Trump backers argue, ‘should not be used for currency manipulation, or for cash settlement market rigging. There should be no bank credit for speculation and absolutely none for hedge funds. Let’s wipe these speculative vehicles out by huge taxes on short-term trading profits, ending tax concessions on borrowing, and ending all bank credit for speculation. Let these people go to do real work.’ “

TURKEY Threatens US: “Give Turkey Your Nuclear Weapons at Incirlik Air Base or We Will Take Them!” – from TheDailySheeple.com – “The leading Islamic newspaper in Turkey – and official government mouthpiece – has Tweeted the announcement that the United States must give Turkey its NUCLEAR WEAPONS at Incirlik air base or Turkey will take them… This is CONFIRMED by the Washington Point and other news media through their reporters Tweeting too as shown below…”

Open Letter Of Aleppo Doctors Is Easily Torn Apart – Bottom Of The Barrel Propaganda – by Brandon Turbeville, ActivistPost.com – “Still, the letter has been reported by the Guardian and a host of other Western mainstream media outlets as fact that conveniently tugs at the heartstrings. The letter is being referred to as the Open Letter Of Aleppo Doctors… In reality, the letter is a semi-carefully crafted act of pro-war propaganda which calls on the United States and the West to “do something” and includes accusations against the Russian and Syrian governments as well as claims of Assad’s (and Russia’s) alleged targeting of hospitals. The letter even has incubator babies for extra effect!.. Of course, the doctors are calling for war and, in this, there is no question. They want the U.S. to intervene directly in Syria and no doubt “liberate” Syria and spread the “democracy” that has left every other “liberated” country the burning heaps of rubble and savagery that they are today. They are calling for the forces of Bashar al-Assad to be defeated so that “rebels,” aka al-Qaeda, al-Nusra (excuse me, Jobhat Fatah al-Sham), Ahrar al-Sham, ISIS, etc. can take over take over the city and impose their pre-historic Sharia rule over civilized people, all with the requisite amount of rape, murder, torture, and pedophilia to go along with “rebel” liberation. Nice work, docs… But, perhaps I should sarcastically congratulate the State Department instead? After all, there is little evidence these doctors actually exist. Even the Guardian itself was quick to point out that ‘It has not been possible to verify the names of all the doctors listed in the letter.’ ”

State Now Claims It Owns the Wind — Taxing Renewable Energy “Out of Existence” – by Matt Agorist, ActivistPost.com – “Do not mistake this tax as part of the regular taxes that already apply to businesses like income tax and employment taxes. No, this is an entirely new tax based solely on the assertion by Wyoming officials that they own the wind…’“Wind is different than anything else. It’s not like a mineral, which is something that sits there in the ground until you go after it,’ says Bob Whitton, chairman of the Renewable Energy Association of Landowners (REAL). ‘It’s not like water that can be put in a lake or pond. The wind blows in and blows out and you can’t put it in a pond, pipeline, truck or train and send it somewhere.’.. ‘The question is if wind rights should be severable from surface ownership,’ says UW Law Professor Dennis Stickley, who has worked on the issue along with a group of graduate students that gave their findings at the recent Wind Energy Task Force meeting in Casper, as reported by WYLR… ‘As a general principle, all rights in property are assignable and transferrable and alienable, and you can transfer title,’ says Stickley. ‘Moreover, anecdotally there are situations already where landowners have severed wind rights.’.. However, thanks to Wyoming officials, these rights no longer apply.”

Orwellian CA Bill: Reporters Can’t Post Undercover Videos – by Jon Rappoport, ActivistPost.com – “Nick Cahill, at the Courthouse News Service, has the story. Here are key quotes. Buckle up: ‘Controversy surrounding secretly recorded videos showing Planned Parenthood employees discussing fetal tissue sales has morphed into a California proposal that would punish media companies for reporting on certain undercover videos. But media groups say the bill, which is on the verge of clearing the Legislature, could have a ‘chilling effect’ on free speech and set the state up for First Amendment court battles… ‘Born from the 2015 hidden-camera footage released by the anti-abortion Center for Medical Progress, Planned Parenthood is pushing Assembly Bill 1671 which it claims will protect abortion clinics and other health care providers from similar malicious sting operations… ‘The bill would criminalize publishing undercover video footage of ‘health care providers’ and subject third parties, including journalists, to penalties for reporting and distributing the illegally recorded footage.’ [My comment: It appears criminal penalties could be applied to anyone who posts the videos and comments on them, online. Not just reporters.].. ‘Under AB 1671, a journalist receiving and posting footage from an anonymous source could be punished by the state as well as be opened up to potential civil lawsuits. Whistleblowers would not be exempt from the proposal either, regardless of how they obtained the illegal footage.’ “

American Pravda: Did the US Plan a Nuclear First Strike Against Russia in the Early 1960s? – by Ron Unz, Unz.com – “Finally, a week or two later, my curiosity got the better of me, and I dropped him a note, gingerly raising the topic I’d accidentally overheard. I suggested that if he possessed any private information regarding so astonishing a possibility—that the Kennedy Administration might have considered a nuclear first strike against the USSR—perhaps he had a duty to bring the facts to public awareness lest they be lost to history… He replied that he’d indeed found persuasive evidence that the US military had carefully planned a nuclear first strike against the Soviet Union in the early 1960s, and agreed about the historical importance. But he’d already published an article laying out the case. Twenty years earlier. In The American Prospect, a very respectable though liberal-leaning magazine. So I located a copy on the Internet: Did the U.S. Military Plan a Nuclear First Strike for 1963? – Heather A. Purcell and James K. Galbraith, The American Prospect, Fall 1994″

Julian-n-Aldous_HuxleyUNESCO’s First Director-General Advocated Global Population Control – by Steven MacMillan, ActivistPost.com – “From the ancient Acropolis in Athens, to the city in the sky in Peru; the only time many people hear about UNESCO – the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization – is in relation to their world heritage programme. What must be documented, however, are the views and opinions of UNESCO’s first Director-General, Julian Huxley… Born in London in 1887, Huxley (pictured to the left) was an evolutionary biologist, philosopher, author and internationalist, who served as the head of UNESCO from 1946 to 1948. The brother of Brave New World author, Aldous Huxley, and the grandson of “Darwin’s bulldog,” Thomas Henry Huxley, the former UNESCO chief was from a family deeply entrenched within the British elite. Huxley was also a founding member of the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), in addition to being an influential figure in popularising the movement of Transhumanism… But what most concerns us here is his devotion to the religion of the global elite; namely eugenics. Huxley was a prominent member of the British Eugenics Society, serving both as vice-president and president of the society in his lifetime. He wrote numerous essays throughout his life, writing extensively on eugenics and the need to depopulate the planet. In a 1964 essay titled: “The Humanist Frame,” the former UNESCO head reveals his desire to decrease the global population…”

Washington Escalates Covert Backing for Al Qaeda Militias in Aleppo – by Thomas Gaist, Strategic-Culture.org – ” It is not coincidental that the ferocious US-backed assault is unfolding on the eve of Turkish President Erdogan’s trip to St. Petersburg for talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin, on Tuesday. There are well-grounded fears in American ruling circles that Erdogan will reach a broad-based agreement with Putin, one that would close-off all remaining supply routes necessary for sustaining the war against Damascus… The cause of the sudden reversal in the fortunes of the anti-government forces, who, if US media reports can be believed, have seized the initiative from the jaws of total defeat, was quietly acknowledged in reports published by the New York Times on Saturday and Monday, titled ‘Military Success in Syria Gives Putin Upper Hand in US Proxy War’ and ‘Rebel Offensive in Syria Challenges Government Siege of Aleppo.’.. As Saturday’s Times piece noted, the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has been supplying the Al Qaeda-linked militias with virtually unlimited supplies of sophisticated antitank missiles and other weaponry.”

Back to School Shots: How Your Child is Being Programmed – by Missy Fluegge, NaturalBlaze.com – “Many parents already know that it is common practice for health departments, schools, and insurance companies to offer prizes to children and their families for being vaccinated. These programs have been implemented across the country and are designed to boost vaccination rates, rather than protect children’s health… Prizes are also offered to health care providers who increase their immunization rates and fully immunize babies and toddlers within their practices… However, parents may be surprised to learn about, later in this article, the massive amounts of money some doctors receive as bonus payments for vaccinating young patients. This article is a must-read for all parents, whether or not you have a child who will be resuming traditional school in the fall.’

Erdogan Threatens To Abandon US Dollar In Trade With Russia – by Tyler Durden, ZeroHedge.com – “The unexpectedly sharp antagonism between Turkey and the west accelerated today, and one day after NATO preemptively reminded Turkey that it is still a NATO alliance member and advising Ankara that “Turkey’s NATO membership is not in question”, Turkey had some more choice words for its military allies. Cited by Reuters, Turkey foreign minister Mevlut Cavusoglu told Turkish’s NTV television on Thursday that the country “may seek other options outside NATO for defense industry cooperation, although its first option is always cooperation with its NATO allies.” Translation: if Russia (and/or China) gives us a better “defensive” offer, we just may take it… The sharply worded retort came on the same day that Turkey said it will resume airstrikes on Islamic State targets in Syria, and asked Russia to carry out joint operations against its “common enemy.” Ankara halted strikes after the downing of a Russian plane by Turkish forces last year… In the same interview, Cavusolgu said that Ankara ‘will again, in an active manner, with its planes take part in operations’ against Islamic State targets. Cavusolgu also said that Ankara has called on Moscow to carry out joint operations against the “common enemy” of IS. ‘Let’s fight against the terrorist group together, so that we can clear it out as soon as possible,’ Cavusolgu said, adding that otherwise IS will continue to expand and spread into other countries.”

Full-scale War Possible as Ukraine Masses Troops on Crimea Border – by Kurt Nimmo, ActivistPost.com – “Poroshenko is attempting to rally support from France and Germany, Joe Biden and European Council President Donald Tusk… Biden has been particularly critical of Russia. His son, Hunter Biden, is a board member of Burisma, Ukraine’s largest gas company. Chris Heinz, the step son of Secretary of State John Kerry, is also involved in Ukrainian business deals… From NPR: ‘The Federal Security Service, the FSB, said that teams of commandos from Ukraine’s defense forces made two attempts to enter the Black Sea peninsula, with the intention of sabotaging vital infrastructure. The FSB said Ukrainian forces attempted to cover the infiltration by directing heavy fire at the Russian side, killing two Russian servicemen.’.. The provocation derailed planned talks about eastern Ukraine scheduled for the sidelines of a G20 summit in China next month. Putin said talking to Ukraine would now be “pointless.”.. Reuters accused Putin of saber-rattling: ‘Using some of his most aggressive rhetoric against Kiev since the height of the war two years ago, Putin has pledged to take counter-measures against Ukraine, which he accused of sending saboteurs into Crimea to carry out terrorist acts.’.. Geoffrey Pyatt, the US ambassador to Ukraine who played an instrumental role in the coup overthrowing the elected government and installing hardcore anti-Russian nationalists and neo-fascists, said the US ‘has seen nothing so far that corroborates Russian allegations of a Crimea incursion.’ (Note: right)… In response to the troop buildup on the Crimea border, Russia announced war games in the Black Sea.”

trump-thumbs-upPrediction: 2016 Will End With Economic Instability and a Trump Presidency – by Brandon Smith, TheDailySheeple.com – “Political and economic events tend to swing like a pendulum, or move like the tides. What you think you know today, according to the mainstream mood, can swiftly change tomorrow. Sometimes this is mere random coincidence, but often it is engineered by the powers that be. When discerning coming trends, the only assumption I recommend people operate on is that the globalists will play the long game; the short game is only relevant as far as it serves the long game… What is the long game? The globalists have openly admitted their goal in numerous mainstream publications, but my favorite example is the January 1988 issue of the Rothschild run magazine The Economist. The issue pronounces boldly that investors should “get ready for a global currency” by 2018. I examine this issue in detail in my article The Economic End Game Explained… The Economist article mentions the sacrifice of “some” economic sovereignty of nation states, the end of the dollar’s world reserve status and the rise of the IMF’s Special Drawing Rights basket currency mechanism as a “bridge” to a single global currency. None of these changes can be accomplished without certain parts of the world suffering severe financial instability first. Not only is this a mathematical inevitability, such crisis is also a useful tool for elitists to mold the public’s collective psychology.”

Brace Yourselves, America: The Next Huge Housing Bailout Could Be Coming – by Shaun Bradley, ActivistPost.com – “The failures of government intervention in the economy have made headlines yet again. Recent stress tests by the Federal Housing Finance Agency found something sinister brewing under the surface at notorious mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. The results show that these puppet companies could need up to a $126 billion bailout if the economy continues to deteriorate… That’s right — the two companies that were taken over by the government and that sucked $187 billion from the treasury could be entitled to more taxpayer money. The toxic home loans bought during the last crisis coupled with a lack of liquidity have suddenly become serious risk factors. The so-called “recovery” that has been trumpeted for years by countless politicians and economists is falling apart in plain view. The media will do just about anything to assure the public that this is all isolated and overblown, but the canary in the coal mine has just dropped dead… The tests ran a scenario eerily similar to warnings we’ve heard about what the economic future might hold…”

China’s crackdown on dissent is described as the harshest in decades – by Julie Makinen, LATimes.com – “For five days last week, the confessions poured forth from Chinese human rights activists and attorneys rounded up last summer and held incommunicado for a year. Four men, facing trial for subversion, cowered before a court where they were represented by lawyers they didn’t choose… A fifth person, knowing her husband was detained and teenage son under surveillance, declared her wrongs in a videotaped interview… China is in the midst of what many overseas scholars say is its harshest crackdown on human rights and civil society in decades. Since Xi Jinping came to power nearly four years ago, hundreds of activists, lawyers, writers, publishers and employees of nongovernmental groups have been rounded up. Many more have been threatened and intimidated. Internet news sites have been ordered to stop publishing reports from sources that aren’t sanctioned by the state… Even as China has been touting its efforts to boost the “rule of law,” some critics of the government have vanished under mysterious circumstances in places like Thailand and Hong Kong, only to surface months later in Chinese custody, claiming rather unbelievably they had turned themselves in voluntarily. Many of those detained have appeared on state-run TV confessing to crimes before they have had a day in court… ‘As an old timer who’s been studying China since the Mao era, I have to say it’s the worst I’ve seen since then,’ said Susan L. Shirk, chair of the 21st Century China Program at UC San Diego. ‘It’s very discouraging.’ “

Syrian War Report – August 10, 2016: Further Escalation – by South Front, VeteransToday.com – “The battle for Aleppo is heading to its turning point. Jabhat Fateh al-Sham, a new brand of the Al Nusra Front terrorist group, various jihadi faction and the Western-backed moderate oppositioners has set a joint front against the Syrian government forces, supported by the Russian Aerospace Forces and Iranian-backed Shia militias. They were pushed to make this move, which clearly showed there were only terrorists and terrorist-linked groups in Aleppo, because of successful actions of the Assad government and its Russian and Iranian allies that lead to encirclement of the militant-controlled areas of the city… This and a threat of cessation of support through the Turkish border after August 9 meeting between Vladimir Putin and Recep Erdogan forced Jabhat Fateh al-Sham leadership and its allies to risk everything, redeploying all elite infantry in the battle for Aleppo and moving rear supply bases and command centres closer to the strategic city. The militants’ actions show that they the “all-or-nothing” approach.”

Kidnapped_TwinsAlabama Child Protective Services Continues to Harass Alabama Family – from HealthImpactNews.com – “A set of twins seized from their home in June by Shelby County DHR in Alabama may have to repeat the 8th grade, even though both were promoted by their school to the 9th grade. Family and friends are very concerned about the impact that the Department of Human Resources (DHR) will have on the twins’ education. There have also been numerous problems with visitation attempts with the twins… Their family’s story has been at the heart of an ongoing series of articles from Health Impact News after one of the twins, a young rape victim, had her baby seized from her at Shelby County Baptist Medical Center on June 15 without a court order, warrant, or emergency circumstances… See the original story: Alabama Child Protective Services Steals New-born Breast-feeding Baby from Rape Victim While Still at the Hospital… The story went viral with almost a million views in the first 24 hours after publication, and public outcry arose. In what many close to the situation believe was an attempt to cover their tracks, DHR seized the 14 year old mother and her twin brother the next evening from their home. The mother was placed in a group home with her baby, and her twin was placed into a foster home. He was recently transferred to a group facility that is 2 hours away from her… Both twins were told last week by DHR officials that they would be going into the 8th grade when school starts, even though both of them completed the 8th grade in the spring. They were promoted by their school to the 9th grade before they were taken from their home.”

Ancient Syrian site discovered and destroyed – by Ian Greenhalgh, VeteransToday.com – “So why is someone sponsoring this wholesale looting and destruction? Of course, there is profit to be made and artifacts looted by IS have indeed turned up in the antique markets of Europe, however, there is a far deeper and far more sinister reason… Note that one of the items that is mentioned as being found and destroyed are cuneiform clay tablets. These are among the very oldest writings known and examples of them form a large part of the basis of knowledge about the oldest civilisations of the middle east – Sumer and their religion which was based around two gods Enki and Enlil – the Annunaki. It is said that the three Abrahamic religions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam are all based on the religion of ancient Sumer and this is a secret that has to be kept… However, I feel that this is not a sufficiently big secret to justify the great efforts being expended to hide it. I feel that the secret is rooted in the Annunaki and the origins of our oldest civilisations, ancient knowledge that would change our entire view of the world, the universe and our place in it – that is the big secret they aim to keep hidden by smashing and destroying any remnants of those ancient civilisations that might give the game away.”

Putin: Foiled Attack in Crimea Worrying, Ukraine Starts to Resort to Terror – from SputnikNews.com – “Russian President Vladimir Putin said Wednesday that attempts to carry out terrorist attacks in Crimea is a “dangerous game” and Moscow will take additional security measures after an attack was foiled… Two Russian servicemen died while thwarting the allegedly Ukrainian-led terror plots in Crimea, this will not be ignored, Putin said… ‘I want to note and I think this has already been reported in the media, that two servicemen were killed. We shall not ignore this.’.. He added that Russia views the assassination attempt against Igor Plotnitsky, the head of east Ukraine’s self-proclaimed Lugansk People’s Republic, as well as the Crimean sabotage attempt, in the context of terrorism.”

Voice of America- Propaganda Alert!: Jubilant Syrian Rebels Promise Aleppo Offensive Far From Over – by Jamie Dettmer, VOANews.com – “The rebel breach will likely complicate high-level discussions between the United States and Russia on the targeting of jihadist militias in the war-shattered country. The rebel offensive was led by a jihadist militia, Jabhat al-Nusra that announced last month it is cutting ties with al-Qaida… The rebranded Jabhat Fateh al-Sham has aimed to expand its influence over other rebel armed groups. Its leader, Abu Muhammad al-Julani, said in an audio message Friday the success of the then unfolding rebel offensive in Syria’s second largest city is due in large part to ‘the coalescence and unity of the factions against the enemy.’.. The offensive saw jihadists and hardline Islamists coordinating with more moderate insurgent groups aligned with the Fatah Halab Operations Room featuring Western-backed Free Syrian Army militias. In all, 22 insurgent groups have been involved in the week-long offensive, a-first of-its-kind for the rebels… The offensive has consisted of two prongs, rebels attacking from the city’s eastern districts into the government-held southwest and insurgents mounting a push from the countryside west of Aleppo into the city.”

MUST READ: Hillary, Queen of War: The Road Map Ahead – by Pepe Escobar, InformationClearingHouse.info – “Yet considering the Queen of War’s instincts, all signs do point towards Iran… The manual/blueprint/road map for Hillary’s wars is arguably here, in this very dangerous intersection between US neocons and neoliberalcons. The CNAS think tank is led by one-third (Michele Flournoy) of what I have dubbed The Three Harpies; Hillary Clinton, Flournoy and – the most terrifying words in the English language – Secretary of State Victoria Nuland, the possible lethal trio in charge of foreign policy under a Clinton Three administration… This is in fact PNAC (the Project for a New American Century) on steroids, with echoes of the warlike 1992 US Defense Planning Guidance disguised under the soothing rhetoric of benevolent hegemony and “rules-based international order”. If the Trump campaign managed to restrain his motormouth and/or motortweet instincts and focus on what this warmongering opus means for the US and the world at large they would strike a chord with millions of undecided US voters… For all her bluster, and that will be elevated to unheard-of hysterical levels, the Full Spectrum Dominatrix won’t be foolish enough to launch a war – which will inevitably be nuclear – against either Russia (Baltics as a pretext) or China (South China Sea as a pretext), the Pentagon’s top two “existential threats”… In Syria, on the other hand, by January 2017 al-Qaeda/not al-Qaeda goons formerly known as “moderate rebels” will be mostly six feet under.”

Syrian Endgame: The Battle for Aleppo and ‘Plan C’ – by Prof. Tim Anderson, InformationClearingHouse.info – ” The battle for Aleppo has forced the al Qaeda groups into their desperate last stand, as the Washington-driven proxy war on Syria moves into its final stages. The liberation of Aleppo will be the beginning of the end… The online maps have been misleading. Even before the Russian air power intervention of September 2015 the Syrian Government controlled 85% of the country’s populated areas. But reclaiming all of Aleppo is critical for Syrian control of the north and of supply lines to the shrinking ground of ISIS in the east… Syria’s major problem has been Turkey’s semi-open support for jihadist armies crossing the 800km northern frontier, and the Turkey-Saudi-Qatari backed advances of ISIS from the east. In the past 10 months the Syrian Alliance has successfully pushed back on both fronts. Further, since last month, Turkey is in disarray, with its own problems… Many follow the logic of dominant forces but, to understand the endgame in this war, the logic of resistance is no less important. Syria is proving that independent peoples who unite and resist can end up with a greater say in the outcome.”

What will a Clinton foreign policy look like?: Michelle Flournoy, likely Pentagon Secretary (Clinton Secretary of “Defense”), calls for “no bomb zone” in Syria – by Alan Gilbert, Democratic-Individuality.blogspot.com – “Flournoy is the founder and CEO of another private war-making think-tank, the Center for New American Security for which she co-authored a report on Syria. In a brilliant critique below, Steve Walt rightly names the closed circle of dinner party guests, doing no significant research, having no new thoughts, reaffirming, for each other, a repetitive or cliched, self-defeating response: ‘A New-Old Plan to Save the World…That Has No Hope of Saving the World – Why a big-name D.C.-based think tank’s report on U.S. foreign policy is unimaginative, predictably U.S.-centric, and a recipe for failure.’.. Walt mocks the insipidity of American foreign policy “expert” war-mongering: ‘Question: If a well-established set of policies is visibly failing, public skepticism is growing, and promising alternative approaches are beginning to gain a bit of traction in public discourse, what should dedicated defenders of the status quo do? Specifically, given that the grand strategy of liberal [sic – there is nothing genuinely liberal or decent about Imperial wars in the Middle East] hegemony has produced an array of costly failures over the past 20-plus years, how can its proponents head off calls for a smarter foreign policy and persuade the American people to keep trying to run the world?’ ” – Plus, 2 fine articles linked from the above:https://consortiumnews.com/2016/07/29/hillary-clinton-and-her-hawks/http://foreignpolicy.com/2016/05/26/a-new-old-plan-to-save-the-world-that-has-no-hope-of-saving-the-world-cnas/

What Exactly Is the U.S. Military Plotting in Africa? – When AFRICOM evaluates itself, the news is grim – by Nick Turse, Alternet.info – “During his final days in command, AFRICOM released several more short videos of Rodriguez holding forth on varioius issues. In one of the last of these, the old soldier praised “the whole team” for accomplishing “a tremendous amount over the last several years.” What exactly that was went unsaid, though it certainly wasn’t achieving AFRICOM’s mandate to “neutraliz[e] transnational threats.” But what Rodriguez said next made a lot of sense. He noted that AFRICOM wasn’t alone in it — whatever it was. Washington, D.C., he said, had played a key role, too. In that, he couldn’t have been more on target. The increasingly bleak outlook in Africa can’t simply be laid at the feet of AFRICOM’s commanders. Again and again, they’ve been upfront about the deteriorating situation. Washington has just preferred to look the other way. “

Monsanto Losing Millions As Farmers In India Rebel, Plant Indigenous Seed – by Christina Sarich, NaturalBlaze.com – “Monsanto is accused of writing laws and then breaking them to enter the market in India, but after more than 300,000 farmer deaths between 1995 and 2013, many of them attributed to Monsanto, the company is finally paying for their misdeeds. The corporation’s greed is linked to farmer suicides throughout Maharashtra, considered the ‘Cotton Belt’ in India… The Indian government is now actively promoting the use of indigenous seed, and has called Monsanto out for profiteering illegally on Bt cotton seed… Monsanto has already lost nearly $75 million in royalties this year (5 billion rupees) due to the change in seed choice by farmers. Sales in India have fallen by 15 percent, and though this is a relatively small market share, it is still making a huge impact on the company’s bottom line… This could be the end of Monsanto, altogether, in India. Keshav Raj Kranthi, head of India’s Central Institute for Cotton Research said: ‘Just wait for the crucial three to four years to see a complete, natural turnaround. By then most farmers will give up Bt cotton and go for the indigenous variety.’ ” – As Eric Schmidt says, “Don’t be Evil.”

2012 Documents Show State Department Aware Of Weapons Shipments To Terrorists In Syria, Hillary Lied In Testimony – by Brandon Turbeville, ActivistPost.com – “One such document which was obtained from the Department of Defense, more specifically the Defense Intelligence Agency was dated October, 2012 and stated clearly that not only were weapons being shipped to Syria but that the shipments themselves were being monitored… The documents stated: “Weapons from the former Libya military stockpiles were shipped from the port of Benghazi, Libya to the Port of Banias and the Port of Borj Islam, Syria. The weapons shipped during late-August 2012 were Sniper rifles, RPG’s, and 125 mm and 155mm howitzers missiles… ‘During the immediate aftermath of, and following the uncertainty caused by, the downfall of the ((Qaddafi)) regime in October 2011 and up until early September of 2012, weapons from the former Libya military stockpiles located in Benghazi, Libya were shipped from the port of Benghazi, Libya to the ports of Banias and the Port of Borj Islam, Syria. The Syrian ports were chosen due to the small amount of cargo traffic transiting these two ports. The ships used to transport the weapons were medium-sized and able to hold 10 or less shipping containers of cargo.’ ‘

Peter_Thiel-captionThe elite’s use young children’s blood to live longer and so do I says Paypal Billionaire – from BreakingDownTheNews.blogspot.co.uk – “Billionaire PayPal founder Peter Thiel said that he believes transfusions of blood from young people can reverse his ageing process and allow him to live a vastly extended lifespan… In an interview with Inc.com’s Jeff Bercovici, Thiel said that the practice — known as parabiosis — is the closest modern science has come to creating an anti-aging panacea… Thiel — a hedge funder who acted as a delegate for Donald Trump and spoke at the 2016 Republican National Convention — is reportedly obsessed with defying death and extending the human lifespan. He has injected funds into startups that are experimenting with ways to forestall the body’s inevitable decline and death… ‘I’m looking into parabiosis stuff,’ Thiel told Bercovici, ‘where they [injected] the young blood into older mice and they found that had a massive rejuvenating effect. … I think there are a lot of these things that have been strangely underexplored.’.. Parabiosis experiments began in the 1950s with crude exercises in which rats were cut open and their circulatory systems restructured and manipulated. Recently, some companies have been advancing human trials with parabiosis. Bercovici wrote that U.S. studies in the field are currently lagging behind trials in China and Korea.”

Former CIA Agent Talks About ‘What’s REALLY Causing Terrorism’ – from HealthFreedoms.org – ” ‘Those are stories manufactured by a really small number of people on both sides who amass a great deal of power and wealth by convincing the rest of us to keep killing each other.’.. Indeed, both sides of the conflict expend significant effort campaigning to prove their crusades are justified. In the United States, after decades of prolonged conflict, the populace is largely desensitized to war and often ignorant of its current manifestations… (Amaryllis) Fox challenges this paradigm: ‘I think the question we need to be asking, as Americans examining our foreign policy, is whether or not we’re pouring kerosene on a candle. The only real way to disarm your enemy is to listen to them. If you hear them out, if you’re brave enough to really listen to their story, you can see that more often than not, you might have made some of the same choices if you’d lived their life instead of yours.’ “

Vladimir-Putin-pointing-360Vladimir Putin to Provocateur Victoria Nuland: Your Diabolical Plan Is Going Down for Real – by Jonas E. Alexis, VeteransToday.com – “Last November, the Zionist machine accused Putin of killing civilians in Syria. 80 to 90 percent of Russian air strikes, they said, ended up slaughtering the civilian population. Hence, Russia is a terrorist regime… What was the evidence for the so-called civilian deaths? Well, no one was able to produce it. What was happening was that Russia was obliterating the so-called Syrian rebels/terrorists, whom John McCain called “brave fighters.”.. Flaming Neocon Victoria Nuland said then that Syria’s ‘regime continues to barrel bomb its own citizens with impunity, perhaps even emboldened by Moscow’s help.’ For Nuland, both Syria and Russia were deliberately creating carnage in ‘Syria’s western cities.’ With the help of Russia, she continued, the Assad government was dropping ‘barrel bombs on innocents on a daily basis.’ This was a lie then and it is still a lie… The Syrian delegation has recently sent a clear letter to the president of the Security Council saying the Syrian army has provided safe passages to the civilian population in Aleppo. As we have stated earlier, almost 90% of the population voted for Assad. So, Nuland didn’t get her information from facts on the ground. She got it from her own imagination, which she cannot submit to practical reason.”

Trump Averts Assassination – by Dave Hodges, TheCommonSenseShow.com – “An ex-FBI agent, reported killed in the line of duty in 2007, was captured in the Trump Towers, where he had evaded first level security. The would-be-assassin was captured in possession of a semi-automatic gun equipped with a silencer. The source of this information is the NYPD… All the details are included in the following video” (audio 6:10) (emph. added)

Staged Zika pandemic was engineered by globalist governments to justify the aerial bombardment of awakening populations with toxic chemicals – by Mike Adams, NaturalNews.com – “The Big Lie about Zika and microcephaly: And finally, the Big Lie about Zika is that it is responsible for every case of microcephaly (shrunken skulls and brains) being witnessed today. This Big Lie is repeated by the CDC which claims, without any scientific proof whatsoever, that ‘Zika infection during pregnancy can cause a birth defect of the brain called microcephaly and other severe fetal brain defects.’.. This conclusion was reached by the CDC using epidemiological statistics, not rigorous scientific studies of cause and effect. In other words, the CDC observed that women in regions of South America that hosted Zika-carrying mosquitoes were suffering from microcephaly in their newborn children. From this, they concluded a cause-and-effect relationship between Zika virus and the developmental deformities. What they failed to recognize, however, is the presence of the dominant cause: All these same areas were also being sprayed with highly toxic larvicide chemicals that work by interfering with the nervous systems of insects… Those same chemicals, when ingested by pregnant women, also cause neurodevelopmental deformities in human children. This doesn’t mean that Zika can’t also cause microcephaly in rare cases, but Zika is likely to be only a minor factor that’s far outpaced by the causative factor of larvicide exposure.

hillary-clinton-DNC-SpeechHillary Clinton Lies About Disabled Girl During DNC Speech – by Alice Greene, PunchingBagPost.com – “Hillary Clinton’s motherly acceptance speech at the conclusion of the Democratic National Convention last Thursday involved a touching story about her work with the Children’s Defense Fund (CDF) in New Bedford, Massachusetts. It was a lie.. ‘So I went to work…going door-to-door in New Bedford, Massachusetts, on behalf of children with disabilities who were denied the chance to go to school,’ bragged Clinton. ‘I remember meeting a young girl in a wheelchair on the small back porch of her house. She told me how badly she wanted to go to school – it just didn’t seem possible in those days… Hillary compared this disabled girl to her own mother, who was abandoned by her parents at age 14 and ‘was saved by the kindness of others.’ “

Obama_Says_Trump_UnfitFrom the Pass-The-Sick-Bag Desk: Obama Says Republicans Should Withdraw Support for Trump – by Michael D. Shear, NYTimes.com – “In his strongest denunciation of Donald J. Trump so far, President Obama on Tuesday said Mr. Trump was ‘unfit to serve as president’ and urged the leaders of the Republican Party to withdraw their backing for his candidacy… Mr. Obama said the Republican criticisms of Mr. Trump “ring hollow” if the party’s leaders continue to support his bid for the presidency this fall, particularly in light of Republican criticisms of Mr. Trump for his attacks on the Muslim parents of an American soldier, Humayun Khan, who died in Iraq… ‘The question they have to ask themselves is: If you are repeatedly having to say in very strong terms that what he has said is unacceptable, why are you still endorsing him?’ Mr. Obama said at a news conference at the White House.” (emph. added)I feel like saying “Look who’s talking.” But I won’t. But seriously, is this appropriate for a sitting president to say to “the press?”

Battle of Aleppo: “Moderate” Agents of Disintegration Are at the End of Their Rope – from en.FarsNews.com – “They claim the battle to retake the city is “most viciously inhumane” and that “destroying Aleppo’s hospitals, schools, markets and its population continue unabated.” Leading lives of noisy desperation, they also claim hundreds of innocents are dying because of the bombing and that this must stop… Obviously, there is a real sense of desperation here as they refuse to see the realities on the ground: ● The Syrian Army has opened additional humanitarian corridors for civilians to leave the city before the final battle. Many civilians have been able to get out of the neighbourhoods controlled by the foreign-backed armed groups through the exit points since the start of the humanitarian operation. The Syrian government has prepared six humanitarian aid centres which can accommodate three thousand people. Here, the means by which they want to achieve victory are as important as the victory itself. ● Many militants have laid down arms. They know their “caliphate” is doomed and they are at the end of their rope, unable to tie a knot and hold on. Quite the opposite, many people continue to receive medical treatment amid the ongoing violence from the liberation forces. What’s more, President Bashar Assad has offered an amnesty for rebels who surrender. The Syrian Army has dropped thousands of leaflets over the city, asking residents to cooperate with the military and calling on militants to surrender. This is not about “operation to kill” and “freely continue bombing;” this is about saving civilian AND militant lives – as humanely as possible.”

For the week of 7/25/16:

Get Ready For America’s New $29 Trillion Debt – by Tyler Durden – ZeroHedge.com – “According to Jacques Necker, everything was just fine… The year was 1781, and Necker, France’s finance minister, had just published a report called Compte Rendu au Roi, an accounting of French public finances… Necker’s report showed that, despite extraordinary public services and military spending, France had a net credit position of +10 million livres… In other words, the country was in perfect fiscal health… It turns out that Necker had cooked the books… Rather than being 10 million on the positive side, France had racked up 520 million livres worth of debt and could no longer afford to pay interest… France had spent decades accumulating prodigious debts. They built monuments, parks, and splendid cities that still inspire awe today… They explored the world and expanded their empire. They engaged in almost constant military conquest in far-away lands… This all came at great cost. But it never seemed to matter.”

Hillary-Chavez-BFFClinton Emails Reveal Direct US Sabotage of Venezuela – from TelesurTV.net – “While Hillary Clinton publicly welcomed improved relations with Venezuela as secretary of state, she privately ridiculed the country and continued to support destabilization efforts, revealed her emails leaked by WikiLeaks… In 2010, Clinton asked Arturo Valenzuela, then assistant secretary of state for Western Hemisphere Affairs, how ‘to rein in Chavez.’ Valenzuela responded that, ‘We need to carefully consider the consequences of publicly confronting him but ought to look at opportunities for others in the region to help.’.. His answer was in line with the U.S. embassy strategy in 2006, also revealed in WikiLeaks intelligence cables: “Creative U.S. outreach to Chavez’ regional partners will drive a wedge between him and them,” said the confidential cable from the embassy. ‘By refusing to take each of Chavez’s outbursts seriously, we frustrate him even more, paving the way for additional Bolivarian miscalculations. We also allow room for other international actors to respond.’ “

Clinton: Destroy Syria for Israel – from the NewObserverOnline.com – “In the email, released by Wikileaks, then Secretary of State Clinton says that the “best way to help Israel” is to “use force” in Syria to overthrow the government… The document was one of many unclassified by the US Department of State under case number F-2014-20439, Doc No. C05794498, following the uproar over Clinton’s private email server kept at her house while she served as Secretary of State from 2009 to 2013… Although the Wikileaks transcript dates the email as December 31, 2000, this is an error on their part, as the contents of the email (in particular the reference to May 2012 talks between Iran and the west over its nuclear program in Istanbul) show that the email was in fact sent on December 31, 2012… The email makes it clear that it has been US policy from the very beginning to violently overthrow the Syrian government—and specifically to do this because it is in Israel’s interests.”

THE CLINTON BODY-COUNT – NEW! Updated for Hillary’s 2016 run! – compiled by WhatReallyHappened.com – “My thanks to everyone who took the time to write and suggest corrections. Many changes have been made to this list based on the info sent in and more will be added in the very near future… In compiling this list I have tried to find as much photographic evidence as I can, but surprisingly (or maybe not so surprisingly) these people in many cases seem to have been erased from the internet!.. The following is a partial list of a large number of persons who have recently met their demise in suspicious circumstances who appear to have some connection to the Clintons. I stress partial because new additions are coming in faster than closets can be found to hide the bodies in!”

Killary__Killary_Judicial Watch Is Going to Destroy Clinton’s Campaign (w/audio 6 min) – by Dave Hodges, TheCommonSenseShow.com – “Have you ever been on a sinking ship? Most of you probably have not. You can bet that Clinton has not either, but she is about to find out… Judicial Watch knows how to get things accomplished. Right about now, Hillary Clinton should be extremely worried. Why? Because it is the intention of Judicial Watch to obtain and publish every Clinton email, and the good news is that the Judge has already expressed agreement with the public’s right to know… In the following audio, this entire scenario is laid out. The following information has Clinton very worried. It is information that the establishment does not want you to see…”

Finally! U.S. Government Admits It’s Not ‘Equal Partners’ With Parents – from HealthFreedoms.org – “As reported by the Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA), the initial language was contained in a draft document by the US Department of Education and Department of Health and Human Services: ‘It is the position of the Departments that all early childhood programs and schools recognize families as equal partners in improving children’s development, learning and wellness across all settings, and over the course of their children’s developmental and educational experiences,’ the statement says… The draft document was titled ‘DRAFT POLICY STATEMENT ON FAMILY ENGAGEMENT FROM THE EARLY YEARS TO THE EARLY GRADES.’.. But the controversial language was removed. HSLDA contended that the language implied that schools had the same rights over children as parents. HSLDA’s Will Estrada met with members of the Department of Education to explain the organization’s concerns… But the document still contains problems…”

Revelation of the Method – The Imperium Speaks of its Own Creation: OIR (Operation Inherent Resolve) Official: Captured Info Describes ISIL Operations in Manbij – by Terri Moon Cronk, Defense.gov – “In a teleconferenced news briefing from Baghdad, (Army Col. Christopher Garver) said coalition forces have recovered 4 terabytes — about 10,000 pieces of information, such as laptops, thumb drives, textbooks and notes — from the battlefield encircling Manbij… The recovered textbooks offer more information than how ISIL plans attacks, he said, noting that ISIL-rewritten textbooks contain high-end math and science, and word problems rewritten into pro-ISIL language… Rewritten Books Dictate ‘Caliphate’ Life: ‘These are textbooks on how to control the lives of everybody that’s inside it, how everyone should live their lives, and how if you don’t live your life that way, you’re an enemy of the state — of the so-called, self-proclaimed state,’ Garver said… ‘They certainly were industrious in being able to put all these aspects into their governance, but it gets back to why we have to defeat them,’ the colonel said… ‘This is unlike any other organization that we’ve fought before,’ he said, ‘and with this sort of totalitarian attempt to control everything, it poses a significant threat not just to the people inside, but everybody that they want to expand out to, as well.’ ” (emph. added)

The Real Secret of the South China Sea – by Pepe Escobar, InformationClearingHouse.info – “The South China Sea is and will continue to be the ultimate geopolitical flashpoint of the young 21st century – way ahead of the Middle East or Russia’s western borderlands. No less than the future of Asia – as well as the East-West balance of power – is at stake… To understand the Big Picture, we need to go back to 1890 when Alfred Mahan, then president of the US Naval College, wrote the seminal The Influence of Sea Power Upon History, 1660-1783. Mahan’s central thesis is that the US should go global in search of new markets, and protect these new trade routes through a network of naval bases… That is the embryo of the US Empire of Bases – which de facto started after the Spanish-American war, over a century ago, when the US graduated to Pacific power status by annexing the Philippines, Hawaii and Guam… Western – American and European — colonialism is strictly responsible for the current, incendiary sovereignty battle in the South China Sea. It’s the West that came up with most land borders – and maritime borders — of these states… The roll call is quite impressive. Philippines and Indonesia were divided by Spain and Portugal in 1529. The division between Malaysia and Indonesia is owed to the British and the Dutch in 1842. The border between China and Vietnam was imposed to the Chinese by the French in 1887. The Philippines’s borders were concocted by the US and Spain in 1898. The border between Philippines and Malaysia was drawn by the US and the Brits in 1930… …The US, for its part, is all about Exceptionalism and Manifest Destiny. As it stands, more than Russia’s western borderlands, the Baltics or “Syraq”, this is where the hegemon “rules” are really being contested. And the stakes couldn’t be higher. That’ll be the day when the US Navy is “denied” from the South China Sea; and that’ll be the end of its imperial hegemony.”

Warning: Trilaterals And Technocrats Are Congregating At The Department Of Defense – by Patrick Wood, Technocracy.news – “Ashton Carter, currently Obama’s Secretary of Defense, is a poster-boy for Technocracy. He is also a member of the elitist Trilateral Commission that has been promoting global Technocracy since its founding in 1973 by David Rockefeller and Zbigniew Brzezinski… Carter has quietly assembled the Defense Innovation Advisory Board, which he claims will “advise the Pentagon on technology innovation issues.” As he recently announced new members, he stated: [The board] ‘is charged with keeping DoD imbued with a culture of innovation in people, organizations, operations, and technology, to support people who innovate, those creative figures in our department who are willing to try new things, fail fast, and iterate; and also to ensure that we’re always doing everything we can to stay ahead of potential adversaries.’ “

 

Pro-Bush neocons backing Hillary Clinton: Analyst – from PressTV.ir – ” ‘The Democratic Party… was greatly concerned about Bernie Sanders at the very beginning of his campaign when he was only polling 6 percent because they knew that Hillary Clinton was a deeply flawed candidate,’ Rodney Martin, a former US congressional staffer, told Press TV on Wednesday… Martin said Clinton is ‘bought and paid for’ and has ‘tremendous neocon support.’.. ‘There is no difference between Hillary Clinton and George W. Bush,’ he added… ‘It’s a tremendous revelation that many of the George W. Bush neocons are now supporting Hillary Clinton, including very prominent Marine General John Allen, and they are all trumpeting this re-engagement against Iran, re-engagement on a very hyper-militaristic level in the Middle East,’ the analyst said.”

Hillary Says Trump Is Most Dangerous Presidential Candidate Ever – But She Is – from TheDailyBell.com – “If Clinton gets into office, she will start or expand wars and through large economic programs will ensure the US’s quasi-depression deepens and that the economy never truly recovers at all (even though it may seem to.).. If things aren’t getting worse, Hillary’s power is not advancing. She is good at making things worse… As her opponent, Donald Trump’s main recommendation is that he has not been a politician before… Donald Trump has chiefly been a builder and businessman… But Hillary has basically been a politician… Economically speaking, politics is price fixing. Laws are price-fixes, forbidding people from taking certain actions in favor of other ones… We may agree or disagree with these price-fixes, but they exist and are a function of lawmaking… Price-fixes always distort and degrade economies. The more laws you have, the more price-fixing and the more degradation.”

For the week of 7/18/16:

Week by week, we’re now seeing “The Daily Shooter” becoming an incredibly prophetic moniker, although now we need to add “Daily Hacker” to the mix, as in the wake of the “Nice Terror Truck” and the squirrely Erdogan Power-Consolidation-Coup we have an “Isis Fighter” chopping up people on a train in Bavaria. And, it seems, plenty of fun and games at the GOP Trump-fest, with plagiarism accusations now being leveled against The Donald’s wife Melania.

The Serious Economic Warning No One Is Talking About – by Justin Spittler, ActivistPost.com – “On Tuesday, July 12, a huge event happened in the investing world… But if you’re like most Americans, you probably haven’t even heard about it… The mainstream media didn’t discuss this event much. It was too busy pointing out that the S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrial Average have hit new all-time highs… Meanwhile, something much bigger was happening on the other side of the world… Today, we’ll tell you what this event was…and why it means big trouble is likely on the way for investors… Earlier in the week, the Japanese yen plummeted… It fell 1% over Monday and Tuesday… This might not sound like a big deal. But it was the yen’s biggest two-day slide since November 2014… Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe triggered the plunge when he surprised the world with an announcement on Tuesday. Bloomberg Business reported: ‘The currency fell by more than 1 percent against all of its 31 major peers after Abe said he planned to add fiscal stimulus after his victory in last weekend’s upper house election. The premier indicated Tuesday he will order ministers to prepare plans for further measures aimed at supporting domestic demand.’ ”

Putin, Erdogan and the Plot Against the Rest of Us – by Gilad Atzmon, Gilad.co.uk – “This is a strange time for the press. Not a single news outlet is reliable or trustworthy. We are bombarded by a plethora of global propaganda networks. The more news channels we have the less we know. Building a coherent and objective picture of reality or global affairs is pretty much impossible. The networks of progressive activists and commentators recycling ready made sound bites don’t help either. I was shocked to find out this week that a bunch of Assad Western supporters, whom I considered by mistake, well meaning and informed, employed neocon terminology such as ‘Islamists,’ ‘thugs’ and ‘Islamofascist’ to the Turkish people who went to the streets to save their country from a military regime… As the picture clarifies, it seems that the coup attempt was motivated by the emerging alliance between Turkey and Russia. The possibility that Turkey becomes integral to a peaceful resolution in Syria brings to an end NATO’s interventionist war against the Assad regime. The plotters against Erdogan were desperate to halt such a transition.”

7 Enduring Truths No Matter How Many Psyop Shootings Take Place – by Bernie Suarez, WakingTimes.com – “Note to the ruling elite and the masses who believe their staged news and propaganda. In fact, note to all humans including those who don’t believe mainstream media news. Whether you are brainwashed with government-controlled news and propaganda or a genuine truth seeker or researcher who perhaps may be falling for an occasional staged shooting going on today thinking they can’t all be fake (right?). Yes you (us)! All of us have an obligation to at least try to look at what is true completely outside of these “terrorism” and “shooting” narratives. And realize that none of us are above being fooled, including myself… That said, let’s consider some things that are undebatable and hold true regardless of whether these events are real or not. Let’s pretend that 20 children ACTUALLY died at Sandy Hook and let’s pretend all of the shootings and events of the past 5 years are all 100% true. From Boston bombing, Umpqua College, Navy Yard, San Bernardino, Santa Barbara, Marysville, Santa Monica College, Virginia TV reporter “live shooting,” Charleston church shooting, Aurora Colorado theater, Orlando night club, Dallas sniper and on and on – let’s just give the mainstream media and the government a clean slate and idiotically accept their narrative as true blue. This is obviously almost unimaginable for truth seekers who know better but for the sake of this article let’s all pretend… 1 – Gun-free zones are death zones of defenseless people hoping to not be shot dead, 2 – Government has a factual history of false flag operations and staged terror, 3 – More government power means less personal freedom, 4 – ISIS was factually created, funded trained and armed by the West and its allies, 5 – The rule of law now officially does not apply to Hillary Clinton and other ruling elites, 6 – The federal 3-letter alphabet agencies lie all the time and have endorsed false flag attacks and staged events, 7 – The idea that a big government with more power will solve the problems of humanity is fictional with no historical examples to back it up

Polls Show Americans Distrust Clinton, Supporters Begin to Panic – from PatriotRising.com – “On Thursday, The Hill reported that some poll-watching Senate Democrats are beginning to worry that Trump will defeat their candidate. The article describes a private meeting attended by Clinton and several Democratic senators. According to The Hill, a Democratic Senator who was on hand said of the meeting, “Some people were freaked out, they were looking down at the polls on Real Clear Politics and asking why it was so close.” Another individual, described as a “senior Senate Democratic aide,” told the news outlet that this wasn’t the first time senators had raised concerns about how close the polls are… While Clinton supporters are “freaked out” about swing-state polls, there are some others that should send them right off the deep end. A February 2008 USA Today/Gallup poll reported that 73-percent of those polled believed that the Second Amendment protects “the rights of Americans to own guns,” rather than “members of state militias such as National Guard units.”Despite the fact that it has been repeatedly shown that the overwhelming majority of Americans understand that the Second Amendment protects an individual right to keep and bear arms, Clinton has time and again revealed that she intends to work (with those like Justice Ginsburg) to overturn the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in District of Columbia v. Heller, which recognized this right. During the course of her most recent presidential campaign, Clinton has said that “the Supreme Court is wrong on the Second Amendment” and called Heller, “a terrible decision.” Moreover, during a recent appearance on ABC’s This Week, Clinton repeatedly refused to acknowledge that the Second Amendment protects an individual right.”

John_Pilger2A Preview of The Coming War on China – An Interview with Noted journalist John Pilger on China, Okinawa, and U.S. policy in Asia – by Maki Sunagawa and Daniel Broudy, FPIF.org – “John Pilger: The film picks up the theme of much of my work. It will set out to explain how great power imposes itself on people and disguises itself and the dangers it beckons. This film is about the United States—no longer sure of its dominance—rekindling the Cold War. The Cold War has been started again on two fronts—against Russia and against China. I’m concentrating on China in a film about the Asia-Pacific. It’s set in the Marshall Islands where the United States exploded 67 atomic bombs, nuclear weapons, between 1946 and 1958, leaving that part of the world gravely damaged—in human and environmental terms. And this assault on the Marshalls goes on. On the largest island, Kwajalein, there is an important and secretive US base called the Ronald Reagan Test Facility, which was established in the 1960s—as the archive we’re using makes clear—’to combat the threat from China.’.. The film is also set in Okinawa, as you know. Part of the theme is to show the resistance to power and war by a people who live along a fence line of American bases in their homeland. The film’s title has a certain foreboding about it because it’s meant as a warning.”

UN Adopts “Education” Plan to Indoctrinate Children in Globalism – by Alex Newman, TheNewAmerican.com – “A United Nations summit in Korea this week adopted a global “action plan” demanding a planetary “education” regime to transform children around the world into social-justice warriors and sustainability-minded “global citizens.” Among other elements, that means the UN-directed global education must promote “integrated development” of the “whole person,” including the formation of their ethics, values, and spirituality, the final document declared. The global-citizenship programs, with definitions to be incorporated in curricula worldwide, should also indoctrinate children so that they understand their responsibilities to “protect the planet,” and promote what the UN and its member governments consider to be the “common good.”

Boris_Johnson-BoJoBoris Johnson says Assad must go if Syrians’ suffering is to end – New foreign secretary takes stance ahead of international talks that differs from December column asserting UK could not ‘be picky’ about its allies – by Patrick Wintour, TheGuardian.com – “Boris Johnson has said Bashar al-Assad cannot remain in power in Syria as he prepares for his first talks as the British foreign secretary on Tuesday with his US counterpart, John Kerry… Johnson, who had previously argued Assad could help defeat the Islamic State (Isis) in Syria, made the statement within days of being appointed the UK’s top diplomat by its new prime minister, Theresa May… Writing in the Daily Telegraph in December, Johnson, then mayor of London, said the west could not afford to be picky in its choice of allies since Isis in Syria could not be defeated without terrestrial forces.”

“François, Tu es un criminel”: President Hollande Ordered the Massacre of Syrian Women and Children In Retaliation for the “Alleged” ISIS Bastille Day Attack – Air Strikes against Civilians in North of Aleppo – by Prof Michel Chossudovsky, GlobalResearch.ca – “French warplanes, working within the so-called “international coalition” led by the US, perpetrated an unjust massacre on the territories of Syria near the Syrian-Turkish borders, targeting Toukhan al-Kubra village to the north of Manbij, killing families in complete and demolishing houses there… The French unjust aggression claimed the lives of more than 120 civilians, most of them are children, women and elderly, in addition to tens of wounded citizens, the majority of them are also children and women as reports say that the fate of scores of other civilians who still under debris are unknown too… The letters went on to say that the French aggression comes after one day of a US aggression carried out by US warplanes on Monday which perpetrated a similar bloody massacre by bombarding Syrian city of Manbij, claiming the lives of more than 20 civilians and injuring tens others.”

CSI-Style Evidence Against the Holocaust Industry – by Jonas E. Alexis, VeteransToday.com – “(Jonas) Alexis: Are there other scientific evidence and rigorous arguments against some of the claims that have been made by the Holocaust industry? If so, expand on that for us… (Germar) Rudolf: Well, if I wanted to tell you all the evidence and rigorous arguments that have been collected over the past decades or critical research, I’d be talking for hours, if not days. So let me focus on a general overview and give you only a few examples… What we are talking about here is murder… Sure enough, the term “Holocaust” encompasses much more than just murder, but most of the persecution inflicted upon Jews by the Third Reich is not contested… What is being contested is the premeditated and systematic mass murder of millions of individuals, at least half of them in chemical slaughterhouses called gas chambers, while the rest is said to have been simply shot… As in any murder case, the kind of scientific evidence and rigorous argument for or against it is primarily based on forensics. You investigate the claimed murder weapon, if it exists, and you investigate the bodies of the victims, if they are available… What you don’t do is dwell on claims made by witnesses, be they perpetrators or bystanders. For a rigorous, scientific investigations, these statements are only information as to what to look for and where. In fact, witness statements themselves are an object of forensic analysis as to their veracity. What really counts is hard evidence provided by forensics, CSI-style, if you wish.”

Nebraska Law Ends “Policing for Profit” Via Asset Forfeiture – by Mike Maharrey, ActivistPost.com – “As the Tenth Amendment Center previously reported the federal government has inserted itself into the California’s asset forfeiture debate. The feds clearly want the policy to continue… Why?.. We can only guess. But perhaps the feds recognize paying state and local police agencies directly in cash for handling their enforcement would reveal their weakness. After all, the federal government would find it nearly impossible to prosecute its unconstitutional “War on Drugs” without state and local assistance. Asset forfeiture “equitable sharing” provides a pipeline the feds use to incentivize state and local police to serve as de facto arms of the federal government by funneling billions of dollars into their budgets… Asset forfeiture laws incentivize “policing for profit” on one hand, and dubious state-federal partnerships on the other.”

Overcoming the Nihilism of the Oligarchs- Part One – by Arlan Ebel, OpEdNews.com – ” ‘Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage and then is heard no more. It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury signifying nothing.’ Macbeth… The word nihilism in the title of this article is not being used casually. It has a definite meaning that I will try my best to articulate. This is crucial because the meaning of this word is inseparable from my general offering on how to stop the oligarchy that plagues America and much of the rest of the world… What I will be exploring here is a difficult and demanding subject so I will do my best to be clear and I ask in return for your focus and open-mindedness… What I will attempt to elucidate is the psycho-neural condition of these people referred to here as oligarchs for the purpose of predicting their behavior and exploring ways of circumventing its effects. Many people at OEN and elsewhere have expressed frightened, pained bewilderment at the obvious suicidal feature of the oligarchic push for global dominance at any cost. (What could these people possibly be thinking?) Part of my purpose here is to take away some of the intimidating mystery of that puzzle. So to begin to get a grip on this I will start with a reality-picture context to see this in.” – Click here for Part Two

The Coup in Turkey has Thrown a Wrench in Uncle Sam’s “Pivot” Plan – by Mike Whitney, CounterPunch.org – “Then, just two weeks ago, reports began to emerge that Erdogan was making an effort to normalize relations with Syrian President Bashar al Assad. The news wasn’t reported in most of the western media, but the Guardian ran an article titled “Syrian rebels stunned as Turkey signals normalisation of Damascus relations”… Here’s an excerpt: ‘More than five years into Syria’s civil war, Turkey, the country that has most helped the rebellion against the rule of Bashar al-Assad, has hinted it may move to normalise relations with Damascus. The suggestion made by the Turkish prime minister, Binali Yıldırım, on Wednesday, stunned the Syrian opposition leadership, which Ankara hosts, as well as regional leaders, who had allied with Turkey in their push to oust Assad over a long, unforgiving war. “I am sure that we will return [our] ties with Syria to normal,” he said, straying far from an official script that has persistently called for immediate regime change. “We need it. We normalised our relations with Israel and Russia. I’m sure we will go back to normal relations with Syria as well.” ‘ “

Failed coup in Turkey – a few initial thoughts – by The Saker, TheSaker.is – “When I first heard that a coup was in progress in Turkey my first thought was that it was the USA’s way to punish Erdogan for his sudden apology to Russia. Yes, sure, I realized that there were many other possible explanations, but that was the one I was hoping for. I even told my family that if this was a US-backed coup and if Erdogan or his supporters said so, there would be hell to pay for the USA. Less than 24 hour later my hopes were fulfilled: Turkish Minister Blames US Authorities for Organizing Coup AttemptKerry Blasts Turkey for Insinuating that Washington Plotted Coup of Erdogan – Erdogan was undeterred and he went on to publicly declare ‘Dear President Obama, I told you this before, arrest Fethullah Gulen or return him to Turkey. You didn’t listen. I call you on you again, after the coup attempt – extradite this man from Pennsylvania to Turkey. If we are strategic partners, do what is necessary,” Erdogan said. He also explicitly called any nation supporting Gulen “an open enemy of Turkey.’.. Now we need to remember that Erdogan has a history of zigs followed by zags, so I would not put it past him to warmly embrace Obama in the near future, but I find that unlikely. Why? Simply because there is a lot of indirect evidence that the USA was, indeed, behind this coup. Consider this:”

VaporeonSyria: PokemonGo, the NGOs and the Game of Philanthro-Capitalism, Who Wins? – by Vanessa Beeley and Jamila Assi, 21stCenturyWire.com – “Many of you will remember the formidable, eloquent and profoundly touching voice of Syrian journalist, Jamila M Assi, when she talked with 21st Century Wire live from Damascus. We are sharing her words today as they are particularly poignant in the light of our recent article highlighting the more sinister aspects of PokemonGo. They are also a foreful adjunct to our work on the insidious NGO complex that is invading Syria with its multi-faceted oligarchy funded tentacles.”.. Jamila Assi: “The only way I can see evidence of NGOs work in Syria is through those ugly blue bags that remind the child everyday he uses it to go to school is that he\she is dependent on some organization that makes money out of his\her misery. An organization that is the last one to hope for an actual improvement in those children’s life… Why? Because without this child’s misery, how will that NGO work?.. The economy, marketing, propaganda, and “humanitarian” drama of international NGOs have made net profits from the Syrian war like never before. The case of Syrian Refugees, aids sent of Syrians inside Syria, psycho-social support for individuals traumatized by war and many other issues have made perfect material for more campaigning, more prestige, more profit in the name of Syria’s suffering.” (emph. added)

Is Southern Africa About To Be Shaken Up By Hybrid War? – by Andrew Korybko, OrientalReview.org – “Commonly thought of as a bastion of peace and stability in the continent ever since the turn of the century, the southern part of Africa is once more returning to the spotlight of global attention. Zimbabwean officials have alleged that the American and French embassies are behind the latest Color Revolution commotion in the country, stating that their ambassadors even met with the movement’s newest leader, Pastor Evan Mawarire, before he began his campaign. This accusation is echoed by regional leader South Africa, which described the latest tumult as “sponsored elements seeking regime change”. If the US succeeds in its latest Color Revolution plot, then the collapse of Resistant & Defiant Zimbabwe could be the tripwire for automatically setting into motion a preplanned sequence of other destabilizations that might rapidly spread throughout the neighboring countries, thereby returning Southern Africa back to its Cold War-era of conflict and unexpectedly turning it into the New Cold War’s latest battleground.”

RFK-Ambassador_HotelThe Assassination of Robert F. Kennedy and “The Polka-dot File” – A review of Fernando Faura’s The Polka-Dot File: on the Robert F. Kennedy Killing – by Edward Curtin, GlobalResearch.ca – “There is a vast literature on the CIA-directed assassination of President John Kennedy. Most Americans have long rejected the Warren Commission’s findings and have accepted that there was a conspiracy. There is much less research on the assassination of JFK’s brother, Senator Robert Kennedy, and, if asked, far fewer people would say it was a conspiracy and a cover-up. They may not even know the alleged assassin’s name… But the assassination of Robert Kennedy did involve a conspiracy and a cover-up. There is abundant evidence that the accused, Sirhan Sirhan, who was standing 1-3 feet in front of Kennedy when he was shot and who has been languishing in prison since June 5, 1968, did not kill RFK. And there is overwhelming evidence that there was at least a second shooter who shot Kennedy from the rear. The autopsy concluded that Kennedy was shot four times from the rear exclusively (three entering his body) and that the fatal shot was fired upward at a 45 degree angle from 1-3 inches behind his right ear. Sirhan’s handgun held 8 bullets. Visual and acoustical evidence shows that up to 13 shots were fired. Thus Sirhan could not have been the killer.”

Italy Tasks JPMorgan With Creating A €50 Billion Bank Bailout – by Tyler Durden, ZeroHedge.com – “Three months ago, when Italy’s renewed bank troubles were reemerging again, and the country unveiled its first, and certainly not last, “bad bank” in the shape of the “Atlas” (or Atlante) bailout fund, we – as well as everyone else – mocked it for one obvious reason – at only €5 billion it was far too small to make an impact, as we explained in ‘Size Matters: Analysts Mock Italy’s Tiny “Atlas” Bailout Fund Meant To Support €360BN In Bad Debt.’.. In late June, following the Brexit vote when the Italian bank undercapitalization and the nation’s massive bad debt problem was once again exposed, it became all too obvious just how undercapitalized Italy truly is when in one attempt after another, Italy’s Prime Minister Matteo Renzi begged Europe to allow him to implement a €50 billion bailout (not a bail-in) of Italy’s banks contrary to the new BRRD regulations.” – What could go wrong?

Deserter from Kiev forces tells of NATO-guided preparations for attack on Lugansk – Alexei Gromov, Fort-Russ.com – “A draftee fled the APU positions swam across the North Donetsk River, that separates the militia units of the LNR and the APU, and spoke about massive preparations for a Kiev attack in the direction of Lugansk… The soldier, whose name the source did not disclose, reported that around the perimeter of the front along the North Donets River, there are hundreds of mercenaries in the uniform of the APU. Most of the mercenaries are Poles, almost a thousand of them, they are armed to NATO standards and communicating in English… Also, the defector reported on the redeployment of military equipment to the front line. According to him, there are more than one hundred tanks and two hundred pieces of artillery, in place on the north Donetsk River, and helicopter gunships… The soldier says that the groundwork for assault was extremely well prepared… ‘All the past mistakes were taken into account, everything is getting done at a high level; advisers from NATO are at work in every unit,’ he told the soldiers.”

NICE MASSACRE: Another ‘Known Wolf’ Spawned From Gladio’s Cointelpro Litter – by Shawn Helton, 21stCenturyWire.com – “The man suspected of carrying out a shooting and vehicular assault in Nice, France – was already known to authorities despite contradictory claims… French officials are reporting that 84 people were killed in Nice, France, following reports of a truck being deliberately driven into a celebratory crowd after Bastille Day festivities this past week… French President Francois Hollande stated another 50 people were in critical condition and are “between life and death,” with more than 200 others suffering injuries… Almost immediately after the incident occurred on Promenade des Anglais, officials and media were calling the unusually strange sequence of events an ‘act of terror.’.. ‘According to initial reports, a truck-lorry, said to be driven by a ‘terrorist’ and possibly one accomplice, drove into crowds who were heading home after a Bastille Day fireworks display along the beach in Nice, France. Early reports also claim that after the truck’s occupant drove into the crowd he proceeded to fire gun shots at the crowd, before being shot and killed by the police.’.. QUESTION: Was this a ‘ISIS-inspired’ lone wolf’ individual, or is there something else involved in this bizarre incident?.. Another question worth asking: how was Bouhlel able to fire a gun while driving an HGV cargo truck at high speeds? Was this the work of several people?”

Hell Hath No Fury Like a Teflon Sultan – by Pepe Escobar, SputnikNews.com – “When Turkish President/aspiring Sultan Recep Tayyip Erdogan landed at Istanbul’s Ataturk airport early Saturday morning, he declared the attempted coup against his government a failure, and a ‘gift from God.’.. God apparently uses Face Time. It was via that iconic iPhone footage from an undisclosed location shown live on CNN Turk by a bewildered female anchor that Erdogan managed to call his legion of followers to hit the streets, unleash People Power and defeat the military faction that had taken over state TV and proclaimed to be in charge… So God does work in mysterious mobile ways. Erdogan’s call was heeded even by young Turks who had fiercely protested against him in Gezi Park; were tear-gassed or water-cannoned by his police; think the AKP governing party is disgusting; but would support them against a “fascist military coup.” Not to mention that virtually every mosque across Turkey relayed Erdogan’s call.”

US-Led Bombings in Syria Kill 77 Civilians, Including Many Children – U.S.-led coalition killed 21 civilians on Monday and another 56 civilians on Tuesday – by Nika Knight, CommonDreams.org – “Dozens of civilians, including children, were killed on Monday and Tuesday by U.S.-led airstrikes in Syria… The strikes appeared to have been a mistake, with the civilians taken for Islamic State (IS or ISIS) militants, the U.K.-based human rights group the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights group told the AFP news agency… Fifty-six civilians were killed on Tuesday by coalition forces, and 21 civilians were killed by the coalition on Monday. The 77 civilian deaths included at least 11 children… Middle East Eye reports that the coalition did not respond to requests for comment on the recent civilian deaths. The news organization added: ‘Raed Saleh, the leader of the Syrian Civil Defence Force which conducts humanitarian rescue missions in the rebel-held areas, told Middle East Eye in June that he had confronted the U.S.-led coalition about civilian deaths in September 2014… “Mistakes are likely to happen,” Saleh said he was told at the time.’.. Airwars estimates that the total number of civilians killed in Syria by the U.S.-led coalition is 1,422, at minimum, to date.”

Squirtle-Pokemon_GoThe Developer Behind Latest Pokemon Go Augmented Reality Craze – by Tony Cartalucci, ActivistPost.com – “Google has played a pivotal role in augmenting reality in more ways than one… Before it was populating the world with virtual Pokemon characters, it helped manipulate public perception during the unfolding US-engineered “Arab Spring” by quite literally renaming streets and public spaces on Google Earth and Google Maps in real-time to psychologically overwhelm embattled governments and their supporters, and give impetus to US-backed mobs and militants… John Hanke – currently heading Niantic, the developer of Pokemon Go – would have been involved in Google Earth and Google Maps at the time this was happening… As unbelievable as this all may sound, prominent British newspaper, the London Guardian, would report in its article, ‘Syria: is it possible to rename streets on Google Maps?,’ that (emphasis added): ‘In their struggle to free Syria from the clutches of President Bashar al-Assad, anti-government activists have embarked on a project to wipe him off the map. Literally. On Google Maps, major Damascus thoroughfares named after the Assad family have appeared renamed after heroes of the uprising.’ “

No_Open_Centers_in_Bullet_Holes-Nice-captionAnother week spent jammed against my seat back by the continuing acceleration of the Global Control Agenda’s “Summer-Of-Chaos”®. Just when the smoke was starting to clear from the Dallas BLM Cop Massacre, along comes newly-minted small-time crook-turned-instant-Jihadi, Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel, complete with 3 names, and his improbable and unsubstantiated Truck Onslaught against fireworks watchers by the beach in Nice, France – Just in time to prevent the impending and obviously extremely foolish rescindment of the draconian French Anti-Terror “State of Emergency” adopted in the wake of last November’s Paris “Attacks.” Whew, that was close, who knows WHAT would have come down if you started giving the French some room to breathe. Well, don’t get too comfortable just yet, as here comes The Donald’s wild Brouhaha in Cleveland, now with scheduled appearances by the New Black Panthers, open-carrying loaded assault rifles (or would that be “Long Guns?” – I get confused).

Nearly 150,000 Afghans displaced in first six months of 2016: UN – from PressTV.ir – “The UN’s Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs said many of those displaced were farmers, who missed critical sowing and harvest times… The UN report said the northern province of Baghlan was among the worst-hit areas by the nationwide conflict that is still affecting at least 29 of Afghanistan’s 34 provinces… According to the report, armed clashes in Baghlan, Kunduz and Badakhshan in recent months have left hundreds of families homeless… The crisis has also put the livelihood of affected locals at risk and further deteriorated food insecurity across Afghanistan… The latest figures show that the number of the internally displaced persons (IDPs) in the country has surpassed the one million mark this year.”

Turkey Accuses US Of Being Behind Military Coup – Demands Extradition Of Cleric Gulen – by Tyler Durden, InformationClearingHouse.info – ” Gulen, as those who have followed recent Turkish history know, is Erdogan’s quasi-imaginary bogeyman nemesis; Erdogan has repeatedly accused Gulen of plotting a “parallel state” whose intention is to overthrow Erdogan, and has used that strawman narrative as justification to expand his powers and to push for a shift from a parliamentary to a presidential regime. Gulen wrote in his blog that ‘As someone who suffered under multiple military coups during the past five decades, it is especially insulting to be accused of having any link to such an attempt. I categorically deny such accusations.’.. None of this mattered to Erdogan who said as Turkey’s strategic partner, Washington should meet the demand for the extradition of Pennsylvania-based Fethullah Gulen. He also added that Turkey had never turned back any extradition request for “terrorists” by the United States, implying it is the US imperative to extradite the man Erdogan accuses of starting last night’s failed coup… As Reuters adds, Turkey’s foreign minister, Mevlut Cavusoglu, said on Saturday he had made clear in a call with U.S. counterpart John Kerry that followers of U.S.-based cleric Fethullah Gulen were behind a coup attempt, and yet strangely enough, ‘had not directly discussed the cleric’s possible extradition.’ ”

SB 277 – First Amended Complaint For Declaratory, Injunctive And Other Relief… – by Tim Bolen, BolenReport.com – “The Starting Point… On July 1st, 2016 a lawsuit was filed in a San Diego Federal Court asking the court to declare infamous California Senate Bill 277 unconstitutional, and prevent its enforcement. It was an excellent read. Its filing compared, in war terms, to the June 6th, 1944 “D-Day” Invasion of Normandy. The “good guys” were on the beach beginning the counterattack against the forces of evil… The news traveled across Planet Earth like a soothing spring rain… Then, yesterday and today, July 14th and 15th, 2016, new filings are appearing starting with what is called, simply enough, a “- FIRST AMENDED COMPLAINT FOR DECLARATORY, INJUNCTIVE AND OTHER RELIEF.” And, although I liked the first filing VERY MUCH, and said so… I like these legal filings even more.”

Turks-Go_Nuts_4_ErdoganFrom the I-Was-Just-Talkin’-About-This Desk: Turkey: ‘Coup attempt’ is highly dubious and suspicious – by Ian Greenhalgh, VeteransToday.com – “This was a very strange coup, there were no apparent leaders, no-one came forward to make statements to the public or to try to garner support; quite clearly, even during a coup, Erdogan’s ego would not allow any criticism of himself or his regime. Who lead this coup? We have no idea as no-one came forward. This is clear proof that the whole deal was a pantomime, a set-up designed to bolster Erdogan’s regime after it had suffered a series of foreign policy failures… A real coup would have accused him of rigging elections, cosying up to Israel, accepting bribes from Saudi monarchists, peddling ISIS’s stolen oil in partnership with his son and Barzani, the Kurdish strongman and, most insidious of all; killing the ‘golden goose’ by losing the EU Visa deal due to Brexit.”

Vermont AG sued for withholding records on possible investigation of ‘climate change deniers’ – by Michael Bielawski, Watchdog.org – “The group claims attorneys general from a coalition called AGs United for Clean Power are “facing pressure to not follow their own laws in order to keep secret public documents the public has a right to see.” The prior records reveal employees in the New York Attorney General’s Office pressured Vermont to withhold records from public disclosure, but Vermont employees initially refused on the grounds that it was against the law and could attract lawsuits… In an interview with Watchdog, Schnare said he thinks Sorrell and Kline are covering up their interactions with environmental groups interested in advancing climate change policies and silencing opponents… ‘We don’t know all that we will find once we pry loose the public records the Vermont AG should release, but we believe it will further expose the collusion among the AGs and the Rockefeller Brothers Fund and an assorted group of plaintiffs’ attorneys.’ ”

How People are Healing Serious Gut Disease with Cannabis That Mainstream Medicine Will Not Offer – by Paul Fassa, HealthImpactNews.com – “She managed to see Rick Simpson’s “Run from the Cure,” an online video documentary, and was motivated at first but quickly became despondent. Although she had been smoking marijuana to ease pain and help her sleep and eat, she had no way of making that particular oil, which required a pound of marijuana to produce the cannabis oil she would need to heal… She had been inhaling marijuana from a vaporizer, known as “vaping,” which is less irritating to the lungs and throat while still being effective. And it produces less tell-tale pot aromas. At the time, Shona lived in the medical marijuana-unfriendly state of Kansas with her husband and two young children… Shona was in a dilemma about the impossibility of getting enough hemp to make her own oil when her husband noticed specks of oil residue in the inside of the vaporizer’s glass globe cover. So she took the inhalation tube out of the vaporizer and sealed it, then simply collected those little blobs of oil from the inside of the glass globe with a spatula… She did this three times a day, putting the collected oil residues into capsules and taking it. After a few days, Shona could walk without a cane. Soon she began eating and sleeping better and putting on weight. It wasn’t long before she was able to discontinue all her pharmaceuticals… When her 11 year old son innocently tried to explain that cannabis saved his mother’s life after a school class session warning of marijuana’s evils, Shona’s house was raided and the paraphernalia and marijuana she used to create small batches of cannabis oil were confiscated… CPS agents took her son and awarded custody to her ex-husband in town. She was charged with several felonies and misdemeanors and was released on bail money raised by other medical cannabis activists and users. Now she has filed a lawsuit against city and county officials. Further details of her legal status and case history can be read at MedicalKidnap.com.

Is 14 Year Old Mother Being Held Prisoner and Denied Legal Counsel After DHR Kidnapped her Baby? – from HealthImpactNews.com – “Due to the long holiday weekend, the attorney could not file a notice of appearance with the court until Tuesday, but as of the time of writing this update on Wednesday July 6th, she has still not been able to gain access to the case and meet with the young mother… She has made it clear that the family is not disclosing any confidential courtroom proceedings, but they have simply been discussing their personal experiences with their family and with DHR, presently and over the years. She states it is her understanding that the juvenile confidentiality laws do not prohibit them from discussing such. She has even addressed these issues personally in the past before the Governor’s DHR task force, and no one present, including DHR commissioner Nancy Buckner, disputed her… However, when Chasteen attempted to talk with the young mother at the hospital, the DHR attorney reportedly refused to allow her to speak with her, denying the mother her right to counsel. Lisa Chasteen reports: Counsel for DHR, attorney Jennifer Neumann said that she was not allowed to speak with anyone who had not put in a notice of appearance, but she disclosed several facts: Number one – she [the mother] has not been prevented from contacting her family. However, her phone and the physical phone in the hospital room has been removed… The DHR attorney communicated to Chasteen that they are not the ones limiting visitation with the young mother, stating that it is the hospital’s policies and procedures which are limiting the visitors. As previously reported, even the pastor tried to visit and was only able to visit for 15 minutes… Health Impact News phoned the hospital and inquired about the visitation policy. We were told that visitation is from 9 am to 9 pm, but that it may be limited either by the parents, the doctor, or DHR. According to the Patient’s Bill of Rights, visitation may be limited ‘when Children’s (Hospital) is aware of an existing court order restricting contact.’.. There is no such court order, and the family has not restricted visitation. However, the attorney for the twins reports that family and loved ones have been threatened and restricted in visiting and supporting the mother.” (emph. added)

Michigan citizens lose their right to farm or pursue beekeeping in their private backyards – by David Gutierrez, NaturalNews.com – “Every U.S. state has laws on the books designed to protect farms from being declared “nuisances” by their neighbors, and Michigan is no exception. But in 2014, the Michigan Commission of Agriculture and Rural Development exempted small farms from this protection with the stroke of a pen… The revised rule states that local governments can, at their discretion (that is, arbitrarily), ban goats, chickens and beehives from any property that has a residence within 250 feet of its boundary, or that has 13 homes within one-eighth of a mile… Although media coverage at the time focused on how this would affect urban and backyard farmers, the rule change as written actually puts all small farmers at risk, even those in rural and agricultural areas. The only farms that seem safe are those in areas dominated by massive, sprawling agricultural operations – that is, those owned by Big Agriculture… The decision “effectively remove[s] Right to Farm Act protection for many urban and suburban backyard farmers raising small numbers of animals,” said Gail Philburn of the Michigan Sierra Club, as reported by Michigan Live.”

Iowa farmer exposes complete failure of GMOs, blasts Roundup Ready crops for creating superweeds and superbugs that kill vital insects and birds – by Ethan A. Huff, NaturalNews.com – “Besides plunging many farmers into a hopeless debt spiral, which also contributes to widespread farm consolidation by big agriculture corporations, GMO farming is destroying the habitats and food sources of our most precious pollinators: insects and birds. Crop chemicals like glyphosate herbicide (Roundup) kill everything in the areas where they’re sprayed, which the exception of the GMO crops that resist them, destroying the diverse ecological systems that maintain our soils and help naturally protect against pests and disease… These chemical sprays are also creating resistance among the GMO crops they were designed to protect, leaving them vulnerable to the very same problems as the conventional crops they’re quickly replacing. Not only do these chemical interventions not work, but according to Naylor, they actually create more problems than before, including notable upticks in cancer and other chronic illnesses… ‘[R]ather than boosting rural economies, genetically engineered crops have drained billions of dollars from them,’ Naylor writes, adding that ‘the temporary ease of weed control has led to even more farm consolidation; and the unbelievable power of the herbicide glyphosate to kill both annual and perennial weeds has destroyed food and nesting resources for many of our important insects and birds.’ “

Pena_Nieto-Trudeau-Obama-NACCEEPNAU Reborn As ‘North American Climate, Clean Energy And Environment Partnership’ – by Patrick Wood, Technocracy.News – “In a desperate attempt to establish a global Technocracy before people rise up and stop them cold in their tracks, the global elite are making a renewed push to resuscitate and establish the North American Union that was attempted under George Bush in 2005-6… President Obama met this week with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto to form a new ‘Partnership Action Plan’ modeled after Obama’s radical Clean Energy Plan… According to the Leaders Statement: ‘Our actions to align climate and energy policies will protect human health and help level the playing field for our businesses, households, and workers. In recognition of our close ties and shared vision, we commit today to an ambitious and enduring North American Climate, Clean Energy, and Environment Partnership that sets us firmly on the path to a more sustainable future.’ [Emphasis added]… This writer produced several authoritative papers in 2005/2006 that refuted the North American Union and the so-called “Security and Prosperity Partnership”.

Turkey On The Ropes – by The Saker, InformationClearingHouse.info – “So, this can be all summed up by saying that Turkey under Erdogan has shown a truly Ukrainian-level of incompetence, arrogance and delusion… It is in this, truly dramatic, context that Erdogan had to write his letter of apology… The first thing which should be said about this is that Erdogan took a major political risk: after spending months chest-thumping and declaring uri et orbi that Turkey will never, ever, apologize if only because Turkey was in the right, this sudden “zag!” puts Erdogan is a very difficult position. Hence the initial rumors that the letter said that he was “sorry” but not “apologizing” or, second variant, that the apology was only to the family of the murdered Russian pilot, but not to Russia. This did not last too long and pretty soon the bewildered Turks gave up trying to give this apology a face-lift. It was exactly what everybody understood it to be: a real full and humiliating apology… Next there was a statement of the Turkish foreign minister categorically denying that any compensation would be paid. That too lasted a couple of hours until it was admitted that not only would Turkey pay, but Turkey would pay whatever was demanded.”

Breedlove-MoscowBreedlove’s war: Emails show ex-NATO general plotting US conflict with Russia – from RT.com – ” Hacked private emails of the US general formerly in charge of NATO reveal a campaign to pressure the White House into escalating the conflict with Russia over Ukraine, involving several influential players in Washington… The emails, posted by the site DCLeaks, show correspondence between General Philip M. Breedlove, former head of the US European Command and supreme commander of NATO forces, with several establishment insiders concerning the situation in Ukraine following the February 2014 coup that ousted the elected government in favor of a US-backed regime… Breedlove served as the NATO Supreme Commander between May 2013 and March 2016. His personal email incorporated his Air Force call sign “Bwana” – a Swahili word for “boss.”.. The hacked emails reveal his frequent and intense communications with retired General Wesley Clark, as well as former Secretary of State Colin Powell, and involving a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council, State Department official Victoria Nuland, and US Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt.Breedlove continued to push for more aggressive US involvement, claiming a heavy Russian troop presence in Ukraine – which was later denied even by the government in Kiev. In March this year, the general was telling US lawmakers that Russia and Syria were ‘deliberately weaponizing migration in an attempt to overwhelm European structures and break European resolve.’ ”

 

Turkish Police’s Secret Reports Confirm Arms Shipment to Terrorists in Syria – by Fars News Agency, GlobalResearch.ca – ” ‘Certain elements linked to terrorists in Syria are still shipping weapons and supplying their logistics from Turkey,’ the Turkish-language daily, Karshi, cited a police report to the country’s public prosecutor about its operations in the city of Diyarbakir… The newspaper, meantime, said that certain communities have also provided financial supports for the terrorists fighting against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s government… The daily also said the Al-Nusra and ISIL terrorist groups have established bases in Turkey to train recruits, adding that many explosive devices are even manufactured and assembled on Turkish soils… Earlier on Tuesday, Spokesman of a Turkish political party revealed the Turkish government, since the beginning of the crisis in Syria, has been smuggling weapons to the terrorist organizations in Syria using a large number of ambulance vehicles.”

U.S. Female Prison Population Has Grown 800 Percent and Nobody Is Talking About It – by Clarice Palmer, ActivistPost.com – “According to the Families Against Mandatory Minimums Foundation (FAMM), the female prison population in the United States has grown by over 800 percent in the last 30 years, while the male population grew by 416 percent during the same period. Despite this staggering growth, violent criminals are not being sent to prison in droves. Instead, nearly two-thirds of female prisoners are incarcerated for nonviolent offenses… About 56 percent of incarcerated women are in jail due to the drug war or over property crimes, FAMM reports. These types of offenses usually carry mandatory minimums, which are sentences that must be imposed no matter what. This strips judges of the ability to consider mitigating circumstances… Due to mandatory minimums, FAMM contends, many women are given sentences that do not fit the crime — and the result is tragic… Because 60 percent of women in prison are also mothers to children under the age of 18, the drug war has negatively impacted countless families; the number of American children whose mothers are in jail has more than double since 1991.”

Hannah_Cohen-TSA_ScreeningDisabled woman beaten bloody by TSA agents after becoming confused and afraid at security checkpoint – by Travis Gettys, RawStory.com – ” ‘She’s trying to get away from them, but in the next instant, one of them had her down on the ground and hit her head on the floor,’ Cohen said. ‘There was blood everywhere.’.. The young woman, who was returning home after finishing treatment for the brain tumor at St. Jude Hospital, was arrested and booked into jail… Authorities eventually threw out the charges against Hannah Cohen, but her family has filed a lawsuit against Memphis police, airport police and the TSA… Neither police department commented on the suit, but a spokesperson for the TSA said passengers should notify agents ahead of time if they have special needs… ‘Passengers can call ahead of time to learn more about the screening process for their particular needs or medical situation,’ said TSA spokesperson Sari Koshetz. (emph. added) So, apparently it was the family’s fault.

Naomi Wolf –Government Stages Events To Shape Public Thinking – 8m53s

Apple gets patent for remotely disabling iPhone cameras, raising censorship fears – A patent granted to Apple may allow iPhone cameras to be disabled by infrared sensors. This seems logical enough for concerts, but what about protests? – by Danny Yadron, TheGuardian.com – “The patent shows that Apple may allow iPhone cameras to be disabled through special infrared sensors, giving the example of a concert venue using the technology to make sure no one makes bootleg videos of a touring band… ‘An infrared emitter can be located in areas where picture or video capture is prohibited,’ the patent reads. ‘An electronic device can then receive the infrared signals, decode the data and temporarily disable the device’s recording function based on the command.’.. The technology could also be used to beam information to a lot of people’s phones at the same time when they’re in the same location, Apple says, such as people touring the art installments in Chicago’s Millennium Park.”

Alabama Judge Threatens Health Impact News Reporter – by Brian Shilhavy, HealthImpactNews.com – “In a move that can only be interpreted as an attempt to restrict free speech and deny the 1st Amendment right of freedom of the press, Alabama Circuit Judge Corey B. Moore had Health Impact News reporter Terri LaPoint escorted into his courtroom yesterday to give her a stern warning… Investigative reporter Terri LaPoint commented: ‘I had no idea that I would be taken into court today! I was simply outside (the courtroom) as a friend of the family when they called me in. I was only dressed in a t-shirt and jeans, since I never intended to enter the courtroom.’.. Mrs. LaPoint was at the courthouse with the Prince family who had a hearing that day regarding one of the newborn babies that was taken away from the parents by DHR recently. Mrs. LaPoint has reported on the family and their fight against Alabama DHR which has removed two newborn nursing babies recently while still in the hospital at the time of birth. Her original story quickly went viral and was read by over 1 million people in the first 24 hours.”

After Orlando Shooting, ‘False Flag’ and ‘Crisis Actor’ Conspiracy Theories Surface – by Christopher Mele, NYTimes.com – “After the mass shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Fla., on June 12, Twitter brimmed with news reports of the carnage. But some posts on the massacre that claimed 49 lives also included a curious phrase: “false flag.”.. It was a code used by conspiracy theorists to signal their belief that the government had staged the massacre and the information the public was reading and hearing from the mainstream media was untrue… The victims in the shooting? They were “crisis actors” hired to promote the story as a pretext to impose tighter gun restrictions, the theory goes… It is easy to dismiss such beliefs as preposterous and to think of them as coming from a paranoid fringe of society that deeply distrusts the government, but such theories are pervasive. It is difficult to gauge how many people believe these stories, but a general search of YouTube for false-flag videos brought up more than 700,000 results.”

Farage-Juncker-after_BrexitMEPs boo as Nigel Farage hurls insults in the European parliament – by Luke Harding and Haroon Siddique, TheGuardian.com – “In extraordinary scenes, Juncker said that he respected British democracy and Thursday’s seismic vote for the UK to leave the European Union. There was a smattering of applause in the chamber… The former Luxembourg prime minister then broke off from his speech in French and addressed Farage in English, sitting to his immediate right. ‘That’s the last time you are applauding here. And to some extent I’m really surprised that you are here,’ Juncker said… ‘You were fighting for the exit. The British people voted in favour of the exit; why are you here?’.. Earlier the two men had embraced each other, and swapped a few words, ahead of the session of the parliament in the Belgian capital and a summit attended by David Cameron and other European leaders. Juncker even air-kissed Farage on the cheek… But the proceedings quickly degenerated into noisy near-farce. In his own speech Farage began by sardonically thanking his fellow MEPs for “the warm welcome”, before putting the boot in… ‘When I came here 17 years ago and said I wanted to lead a campaign to get Britain to leave the European Union you all laughed at me. Well I have to say, you’re not laughing now are you?’ he taunted… ‘And the reason you’re so upset, the reason you’re so angry, has been perfectly clear from all the angry exchanges this morning. You, as a political project, are in denial. You are in denial that your currency is failing,’ Farage said.”

For the week of 6/20/16:

I hope that you are familiar with all of the evidence proving the artificial nature of the Orlando Pulse nightclub “incident.” This is the most threadbare and obvious synthetic event yet, but in its wake we see Congress Critters doing a “sit-in” on the floor of the House of Representatives to force the passage of “laws” to remove guns from the hands of the American population. Things are moving fast.

#BREXIT PETITION: Who Is William Oliver Healey? – by Mike Robinson, 21stCenturyWire.com – “The #EUReferendumPsyop continues in the form of a petition calling for a second referendum. So far, 2.1 million people have signed it… An online search for “William Oliver Healey” reveals a host of results, almost all of which point to the petition itself or news articles and blog posts about the petition, and almost none of which lead to a real human being called “William Oliver Healey”… No-one seems to be asking the simple question, who is “William Oliver Healey”?.. From the beginning, the UK Column alone has described the entire referendum process as a “psychological operation”. We have stated that that operation is designed to: ● Distract the public from the bigger policy items which threaten their sovereignty and liberty much more than the EU ever did. ● Create complete division between people: not only white/black, Muslim/Christian, rich/poor, but now division among families, friends and work colleagues.”

The sun goes blank again during the weakest solar cycle in more than a century – from VencoreWeather.com – “Contrary to popular belief, solar minimum is not a period of complete quiet and inactivity as it is associated with numerous interesting changes. First, cosmic rays surge into the inner solar system with relative ease during periods of solar minimum. Galactic cosmic rays coming from outside the solar system must propagate upstream against the solar wind and a thicket of solar magnetic fields. Solar wind decreases and sun’s magnetic field weakens during solar minimums making it easier for cosmic rays to reach the Earth. This is a more dangerous time for astronauts as the increase in potent cosmic rays can easily shatter a strand of human DNA. Also, during years of lower sunspot number, the sun’s extreme ultraviolet radiation (EUV) drops and the Earth’s upper atmosphere cools and contracts. With sharply lower aerodynamic drag, satellites have less trouble staying in orbit— a good thing.”

2008 All Over Again – by Chris Hedges, TruthDig.org – ” ‘A lot of banks in America and Europe that held their money in Great Britain just lost 9 percent at current exchange rates,’ said economist Michael Hudson when I reached him in New York by phone. ‘They have probably not hedged it. There have probably been large Wall Street institutions that made bets believing that Britain would remain in the European Union. There are firms and banks, I suspect, which have lost hundreds of billions of dollars. There is talk of another Lehman Brothers. We don’t yet know who it will be.’.. The Democratic Party, by rescuing Wall Street, will be unmasked as the handmaidens of the financial elite… ‘I expect Obama to do whatever he is told to do by Wall Street,’ Hudson said. ‘He has turned over management of the economy to his campaign contributors from Goldman Sachs and Chase Manhattan. He does not have views of his own, other than self-promotion. He wants his presidential library. He wants to have a big foundation like the Clintons. Most of the population will oppose a bailout, of course, and he will cry all the way to the bank.’ ”

Why We Can’t Hide From the Psychological and Emotional Trauma of the Israeli Occupation on Palestinians – Two books go way beyond the U.S. mainstream media’s attempt to be “evenhanded” – by Vijay Prashad, Alternet.org – “But, in the United States at least, it is virtually impossible to find the mainstream media being “evenhanded” on the question of the occupation. A new film by Loretta Alper and Jeremy Earp—The Occupation of the American Mind—shows that Israeli-funded propaganda (hasbara) has effectively rendered the US media into marionettes of Israeli state policy. At the Democratic Party’s platform committee, Cornel West had to make the case that the occupation is a reality. Such a fact could not be taken for granted… In the mainstream US media, there will be no coverage of the April statement by the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to the UN Security Council on Israel. Ban pointed out that not only has Israel continued to build its illegal settlements, but it has also systematically demolished Palestinian homes. By early April, the Israelis had demolished as many Palestinian homes as they had demolished in all of 2015, which means that the pace of expansion has increased.”

Hillary-What_Plans“EXTENDING AMERICAN POWER” — A Sneak Peek at What a Clinton Foreign Policy May Look Like – by Natylie Baldwin, OpEdNews.com – “The Center for a New American Security (CNAS), a think tank connected to the Democratic Party, particularly with Obama’s transition team at the beginning of his first term, published a 20-page policy paper last month called “Extending American Power.”.. That this think tank is already close to the Democratic Party establishment is not the only salient fact in relation to this policy paper. It is also relevant that this paper was signed off on, with an introduction co-authored by, Robert Kagan. For those who may need a refresher, Kagan is the philosophical standard bearer of Neoconservative thought in western corporate media (New Republic and The Washington Post) as well as co-founder of Project for a New American Century (PNAC) which pushed for the invasion of Iraq in the 1990’s and early 2000’s. Kagan believes that the U.S. has a right and duty to be the policeman of the world and to expend whatever resources are necessary to do so under the guise of spreading (imposing) Washington’s definition of democracy by manipulation and force. It is imperialism with a more palatable cover, using terms like human rights and democracy to get average Americans to swallow it. Despite the fact that these democracy-spreading regime change attempts have produced death, chaos and blowback wherever they’ve been tried, such as Iraq, Kagan continues to advocate them with only the minor cosmetic change of now calling himself a “liberal interventionist” rather than a Neocon. It should also be noted that Kagan is married to Victoria Nuland, who, in her job as Assistant Secretary of State for European Affairs, played a leading role in the 2014 coup in Ukraine… The Neocons have now successfully inserted themselves into the Democratic Party where they’ve often teamed up opportunistically with the resident hawks there, such as Zbigniew Brzezinski and his protege, Madeline Albright. Indeed, Albright served on the Board of Directors of CNAS only a few years ago.”

Orlando: A false flag attack on Muhammad Ali’s Islam? – by Kevin Barrett & Feroze Mithiborwala, VeteransToday.com – “Far too many facts pertaining to the Orlando massacre by Omar Mateen raise serious questions about the ghastly killing of American citizens as a False Flag operation of the FBI. The fact that the gory incident came within days days of the death of Muhammed Ali, whose passing away had re-awakened American and global interest in the Islam he lived also raises questions of whether the spectacular terror act was aimed at burying, along with him the idea of a principled and non-violent Islam. (13) Questions the FBI Must Answer… If the FBI, America’s extremely powerful military-security-surveillance complex and the corporate media are to be believed, the Orlando massacre was the gruesome handiwork of Omar Mateen – a “gay-hating Muslim fanatic”, a “homegrown, radicalized lone-wolf” – who single-handedly slaughtered 50 people and injured as many in a killing spree at the Pulse bar on a night dedicated to the Gay Latino community. The massacre, we are told, lasted three hours before the Special Weapons and Tactics Team (SWAT) finally brought down the mass murderer… However, eyewitness statements, several news reports and video clips of the gory incident raise serious questions that suggest yet another False Flag operation. Here below are facts which have surfaced in the aftermath of the massacre which the FBI must address…”

Putin: Russia will respond to ‘aggressive NATO rhetoric’ – 53 sec

FBI, Cleveland police ‘door knock’ on activists expected to protest RNC – from RT.com – “With less than a month to go before the Republican National Convention, Cleveland police are teaming up with FBI agents to conduct so-called “community outreach.” The activists they’re visiting, however, call it “intimidation.”.. To ensure a “safe and secure” Republican National Convention, scheduled for July 18 to 21 at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio, the Federal Bureau of Investigation is collecting intelligence on and from potential activists, the FBI’s Cleveland division spokeswoman, Donna Sullivan, told the Cleveland Plain Dealer… The “door-knock” visits are a form of intimidation to Jocelyn Rosnick, a representative of the Ohio chapter of the National Lawyers Guild, she told the Plain Dealer. Rosnick’s group is providing legal aid to many RNC protesters, but she clarified that not all of the activists visited were planning to attend RNC protests… Teams of federal and local law enforcement officers started the reconnaissance this week, inquiring into activists’ previous addresses, affiliations and future plans for the RNC. In response, a “Know Your Rights” workshop is planned for Friday, activists told the Plain Dealer.”

Juncker-Brexit_Press_Conf‘Get out as soon as possible’ Jean-Claude Juncker gives UK marching orders post-EU vote – from Express.co.uk – “Talking from Brussels after an emergency meeting with EU leaders, Mr Juncker told Britain the other 27 member states wanted to negotiate its exit plan ‘as soon as possible, however painful this process will be’… After a shaky start to his speech as shockwaves reverberate around Brussels, the Eurocrat said: ‘Personally I am very sad about this decision but of course we have to respect it… This is an unprecedented situation, but we are united in our response.’.. European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker and the EU chief executive met President of the European Council Donald Tusk and European Parliament President Martin Schulz in Brussels this morning… A joint statement issued by the EU leaders expressed “regret” over the UK’s decision, but said the British people’s decision would be respected and urged for negotiations to be launched “swiftly”.”

Boris_Johnson-steps_upDavid Cameron chokes back tears as he QUITS in the wake of the historic Brexit vote in referendum – while Boris Johnson makes his pitch to take over as Prime Minister running a new ‘great’ Britain – by James Tapsfield and Tim Sculthorpe, Dailymail.co.uk – “● PM announces resignation after Leave secures dramatic victory by 52 per cent to 48 per cent ● Says he cannot be the ‘captain’ who steers the UK to new future outside the Brussels club ● Boris Johnson booed and called a ‘tw*t’ as he emerged from London home without commenting on result ● Mr Johnson later made what amounted to a pitch to succeed Mr Cameron in Downing Street at a press conference ● Brexit camp performed strongly in Wales and in England outside of London and the big cities ● Vote in favour of EU membership was big in Scotland and big cities including London ● Bank of England governor has moved to reassure markets after Pound slumped to a 31-year low against US dollar ● Standard & Poor’s has warned that the UK’s AAA credit rating now looks ‘untenable’ ● European Council president says UK leaving could make the Brussels club ‘stronger'”

In stunning decision, Britain votes to leave the E.U. – from WashingtonPost.com – “LONDON — British voters have defied the will of their leaders, foreign allies and much of the political establishment by opting to rupture this country’s primary connection to Europe in a stunning result that will radiate economic and political uncertainty across the globe… The voters’ decision to jettison Britain’s membership in the European Union was expected to jolt markets worldwide on Friday and unsettle Western capitals. By the time the BBC had called the result at dawn in London Friday, the pound had already plummeted to its lowest level against the dollar in decades… The vote is perhaps the most dramatic to date in a wave of populist and nationalist uprisings occurring on both sides of the Atlantic that are overturning traditional notions of what is politically possible.”

Schlomo_MlmaIsraeli rabbi asks settlers to poison Palestinian water – from DaysOfPalestine.com – “Israeli Jewish Rabbi Shlomo Mlma asked on Sunday Israeli Jewish settlers to poison Palestinian water resources in order to kill them… Mlma, the chairman of the Council of Rabbis in the West Bank settlements, asked the settlers to do so in order to cleans the Palestinians from the West Bank cities and villages… According to Israeli anti-occupation organisation “Breaking the Silence,” the rabbi wanted the Israeli Jewish settlers to push the Palestinians to leave their villages and pave the way for settlers to take over their lands.”

The FBI, Not “ISIS,” Radicalized the Orlando Shooter – by Tony Cartalucci, Landestroyer.blogspot.co.uk – “Between exposure to Robertson’s extremist propaganda, honed after years of working as an informant and operative identifying and exposing terror suspects, and the FBI’s own informants over the course of months, if not years, it is clear that the US government and its “counterterrorism” measures radicalized Mateen – not “ISIS.”.. The Guardian in its article, ‘CIA has not found any link between Orlando killer and Isis, says agency chief,’ further highlights this blatant truth by reporting (emphasis added): ‘The Central Intelligence Agency chief has not been “able to uncover any link” between Orlando killer Omar Mateen and the Islamic State, despite Mateen’s stated allegiance to the jihadist group during Sunday’s LGBT nightclub massacre.’.. If Omar Mateen was a “homegrown terrorist,” the FBI served as the gardeners.”

The Roots Of Today’s Tyranny: Total Information Awareness – by Derrick Broze, WakingTimes.com – “When attempting to question the Senate Intelligence Committee about whether or not the TIA’s programs were simply renamed and moved, Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon (was) told by Director of National Intelligence John Negroponte and FBI Director Robert Mueller that they didn’t know. However, Negroponte’s deputy, Gen. Michael V. Hayden, said, “I’d like to answer in closed session.” Hayden would go on to become the director of the Central Intelligence Agency and director of the NSA among other spy agencies… Finally, in 2013, even the magazine Scientific American was forced to acknowledge that the Total Information Awareness never ended. Edward Snowden had made it perfectly clear by that point that Americans are living in a Surveillance State. In fact, in an interview with WIRED, intelligence analyst James Bamford said the NSA’s $2 billion facility in Utah ‘is, in some measure, the realization of the ‘total information awareness’ program created during the first term of the Bush administration—an effort that was killed by Congress in 2003 after it caused an outcry over its potential for invading Americans’ privacy.’ “

Clint_LampkinMISSING DETAILS: Orlando Shooting 911 Transcripts Questioned, Alleged Survivor’s Story Challenged – by Shawn Helton, 21stCenturyWire.com – “Here’s a portion of the FBI’s summary of events that excludes any mention of shots fired within the interior of the club itself: ‘Based on OPD radio communications, there were no reports of shots being fired inside Pulse between the initial exchange of gunfire between responding officers and shooter, and the time of the final breach.(!) During this time, the shooter communicated with an OPD 911 operator and an OPD crisis negotiator, and OPD radio communications reported that victims were being rescued.’ ” (emph. added)

UN Adopts “Education” Plan to Indoctrinate Children in Globalism – by Alex Newman, TheNewAmerican.com – “The latest conference on pushing Agenda 2030 through globalist indoctrination of children masquerading as “education” is a crucial follow-up to the adoption of the agenda itself. ‘Children and young women and men are critical agents of change and will find in the new Goals a platform to channel their infinite capacities for activism into the creation of a better world,’ the official Agenda 2030 agreement explains… The sort of activists that the UN hopes to make your children into is also explicitly defined in the agreement. ‘By 2030, ensure that all learners acquire the knowledge and skills needed to promote sustainable development, including, among others, through education for sustainable development and sustainable lifestyles, human rights, gender equality, promotion of a culture of peace and non-violence, global citizenship and appreciation of cultural diversity and of culture’s contribution to sustainable development,’ the global plan for 2030 states. Considering what the UN means by “sustainable development” — population control, central planning, global governance, and more — the agenda for your children takes on an even more sinister tone… “Sustainable” children for global citizenship in the new order will be accomplished via what the UN, the Obama administration, and others misleadingly refers to as “education.” In the UN document the word “education” alone is mentioned more than 20 times. And throughout the agreement, the UN openly advocates the use of schools to indoctrinate all of humanity into a new set of values, attitudes, and beliefs in preparation for the new “green” and “sustainable” world order. The UN’s education agenda also puts sex “education” front and center. ‘By 2030, ensure universal access to sexual and reproductive health-care services [abortion and contraception], including for family planning, information and education,’ the document also explains.”

Europe’s robots to become ‘electronic persons’ under draft plan – by Georgina Prodhan, Yahoo.com – “Europe’s growing army of robot workers could be classed as “electronic persons” and their owners liable to paying social security for them if the European Union adopts a draft plan to address the realities of a new industrial revolution… Robots are being deployed in ever-greater numbers in factories and also taking on tasks such as personal care or surgery, raising fears over unemployment, wealth inequality and alienation… Their growing intelligence, pervasiveness and autonomy requires rethinking everything from taxation to legal liability, a draft European Parliament motion, dated May 31, suggests… Some robots are even taking on a human form. Visitors to the world’s biggest travel show in March were greeted by a lifelike robot developed by Japan’s Toshiba <6502.T> and were helped by another made by France’s Aldebaran Robotics…. The draft motion called on the European Commission to consider ‘that at least the most sophisticated autonomous robots could be established as having the status of electronic persons with specific rights and obligations’… It also suggested the creation of a register for smart autonomous robots, which would link each one to funds established to cover its legal liabilities.”

FDA Approves New Tranquilizing Darts for Children – from WorldNewsDailyReport.com – “The FDA announced this morning it gave its approval for the marketing release of their new anesthetic dart guns, specifically designed to calm children suffering from ADHD… The new product is capable of putting a child to sleep in less than 4 seconds and reportedly has no serious long-term effects on the health of children… These new tools specifically created to assist parents with children suffering from ADHD, have a practical range of approximately 10 to 12 feet (3 to 4 meters) and their effect is meant to last for a period of 4 to 6 hours per injection. The manufacturer advises, however, not to use the gun more than 1 to 2 times daily on the same child in order to prevent the development of a physical addiction to the product.”

Schmidt-WAY_acrossEric Schmidt Dismisses Movie-Driven AI Fears – by Rhonda Richford, HollywoodReporter.com – ” ‘We are just at the beginning of what we can do with video,’ said Schmidt. ‘The next thing is obviously much more dynamic activity with video and eventually AI systems that drive the video into immersive experiences.’.. He did not address the political impact of taking away trucking, taxi and Uber jobs with self-driving cars, and assistant level jobs with Google’s Alphago in the near future. ‘There are issues around the economic impact of these things and the job impact,’ Schmidt said, but dismissed it as too far in the future… He said the EU’s backlash against the giant on privacy, antitrust and tax issues has not had an impact on the company or the Google brand, and he deftly avoided questions about the upcoming U.S. election and this week’s Brexit vote… ‘I take the position that the complaining and the bitching is largely because people know more of what they see of injustice,’ Schmidt said, saying the flow of information has skewed people’s perspective… ‘But I see it as good, I think that is transparency, I think that is democracy,’ he added. ‘I’m a strong believer that democracies eventually work these things out. The systems will adapt and they will adapt to the new reality.’ “

For the week of 6/13/16:

Dear Friends, I am now in the middle of three major projects, and it’s getting harder by the week to keep up with what’s going on in the world of alternative information on the Web. So, things will be changing on this blog and I’m not sure how. If you’re interested in one area that Cynthia and I have been sharing information in Santa Cruz, Cali, please check out our meetup site for the Thrive Santa Cruz Solutions Group – If you click on our past meetings on the Home Page, you will find links for the media we’ve been presenting on a monthly basis.

ALERT: Central Banks Are Directly Buying Stocks Using DARK POOLS – Gregory Mannarino – 5m 25s

The state has lost control: tech firms now run western politics – by Evgeny Morozov, TheGuardian.com – “There’s something even more sinister afoot though. “Buying time” no longer seems like an adequate description of what is happening, if only because technology companies, even more so than the banks, are not only too big too fail but also impossible to undo – let alone replicate – even if a new government is elected… Many of them have already taken on the de facto responsibilities of the state; any close analysis of what’s happening with “smart cities” – whereby technology firms become key gateways to essential services of our cities – easily confirms that… In fact, technology firms are rapidly becoming the default background condition in which our politics itself is conducted. Once Google and Facebook take over the management of essential services, Margaret Thatcher’s famous dictum that “there is no alternative” would no longer be a mere slogan but an accurate description of reality… The worst is that today’s legitimation crisis could be our last. Any discussion of legitimacy presupposes not just the ability to sense injustice but also to imagine and implement a political alternative. Imagination would never be in short supply but the ability to implement things on a large scale is increasingly limited to technology giants. Once this transfer of power is complete, there won’t be a need to buy time any more – the democratic alternative will simply no longer be a feasible option.”

FACT SHEET: Obama Administration Announces Federal And Private Sector Actions On Scaling Renewable Energy And Storage With Smart Markets – from Technocracy.news – “TN Note: Anyone who thinks that Obama personally comes up with these ideas on smart grid, is deluded. Rather, it is the Technocrats behind the curtain who queue up the plans and the rhetoric. John Podesta, for instance, gave Obama his entire policy on climate change; Podesta is a member of the Trilateral Commission and currently campaign manager for Hillary Clinton. Smart Grid is absolutely essential to the implementation of TechnocracyPresident Obama believes in the need to transition to a cleaner, more reliable, and affordable 21st century power grid. Under his leadership, transformations in how we produce and consume electricity are decreasing carbon pollution, scaling up renewable energy, and generating savings on consumers’ energy bills. Since 2009, renewable energy generation has increased at a record pace, while costs have decreased dramatically. Building on this progress, smart electricity market reforms, enhanced transparency, and flexible energy resources such as storage and demand response have the potential to further accelerate the development of a cleaner and smarter grid. In fact, in 2015 alone, the United States doubled the installed capacity of advanced energy storage to 500 megawatts (MW) and deployment of this key resource is projected to continue to expand.” – Note: this very large list of projects underway clearly shows how elite-backed systems are charging ahead.

Russian and American Jets Dangerously Close To Combat As Destabilization Of Syria Continues – by Brandon Turbeville, ActivistPost.com – “The U.S. Navy scrambled F/A-18 fighters to intercept the Russians, the Los Angeles Times reported. The Navy has deployed two aircraft carriers to the region for strikes on ISIS. As the F/A-18s approached the Su-34s, officials with U.S. Central Command—which oversees America’s wars in the Middle East and Afghanistan—used a special hotline to contact their Russian counterparts directing Russia’s own intervention in Syria… Arriving over At Tanf, the American pilots apparently spoke directly to the Russian aviators. ‘Pilots CAN communicate with one another on a communications channel set up to avoid air accidents,’ Central Command confirmed in a statement to The Daily Beast.

CASTING CRISIS: Orlando’s Actors, Agents and Casualty Role Players – by Shawn Helton, 21stCenturyWire.com – “The heavily-stylized company CrisisCast, appears to be a revamped version of the Visionbox Crisis Actors project (a crisis actor production emerging after Sandy Hook), with a professional team of actors, elaborate film crews, expert producers and theatrical effects makeup squads mimicking real-life injuries (additional prosthetics) – all focused to deliver a simulated crisis-like reality to the public, later to be managed accordingly through their public relations division via various forms of social media… In CrisisCast‘s ‘about’ section we see a sophisticated amalgam of emergency protocol disaster training combined with “internationally credited film crews,” that bring their high-end stagecraft to life, through a collection of “role players, stunts, medical simulations and combat flashpoints,” cloaked in visual tricky, with film techniques out of the UK and Australia, so says the group’s website.”

Before Omar Mateen Committed Mass Murder, the FBI Tried To Lure Him Into a Terror Plot – New revelations raise questions about the FBI’s role in shaping Mateen’s lethal mindset – by Max Blumenthal & Sarah Lazare, AlterNet.org – “Before Omar Mateen gunned down 49 patrons of the LGBTQ Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, the FBI attempted to induce him to participate in a terror plot. Sheriff Ken Mascara of Florida’s St. Lucie County told the Vero Beach Press Journal that after Mateen threatened a courthouse deputy in 2013 by claiming he could order Al Qaeda operatives to kill his family, the FBI dispatched an informant to ‘lure Omar into some kind of act and Omar did not bite’.”

James_Wesley_HowellHowell (the “Santa Monica Suspect”) and Four Other Suspects Involved in Planned Sunday Massacres – from GetOffTheBS.com – “Howell stated that he was suppose to “hook up” late Saturday night with his contact in LA who was suppose to have more weapons and chemicals to mix with the Tannerite he was in possession of… ‘When I got here, Dan was gone. I went to his apartment and he had cleared out….I tried calling him but he never answered me,’ said Howell… When questioned about the other four people involved in the plot, Howell was only familiar with the first names of three of the alleged suspects, naming his contact in LA – Dan and two of the three contacts in Florida, Omar and Brandy… Speaking of the suspect killed in the Pulse Bar massacre in Florida, Howell stated, ‘Omar was not suppose to be killed. They lied to us – Omar and Brandy were suppose to get away.’.. When Howell was questioned about how he and his conspirators knew each other, he said that: ‘We were all familiar with each other through an online fundamental Islamic knowledge seminary course[1] – we were recruited through the course and trained together at a camp in Virginia – we were taught how to shoot and make bombs – everyone knew their part – something went wrong… Before the officers could further question Howell, agents working for the Los Angeles office of the FBI quickly swept in and took over the case. Santa Monica detectives were never allowed to talk with Howell.(emph. added)

Feinstein Says Her Gun Control Bill Would Flag Anyone Who’s Ever Been Investigated by FBI – by Susan Jones, CNSNews.com – “Host John Dickerson followed up: “So if you have been under investigation over some period of time, you would trigger –“… “That’s correct,” Feinstein interrupted… “And what’s the time period there for –” Dickerson asked… “There is no time period,” Feinstein said… “So…if you’ve ever been looked at by the FBI?” Dickerson asked… “That’s correct,” Feinstein said… What if the FBI got it wrong, Dickerson asked. “So now they can never buy a firearm?”.. “They would be subject to being pinged,” Feinstein said, adding that the FBI “would look at it.” ”

Climate Witch Hunt | The New Inquisition – from DailyBail.com – “MASSACHUSETTS ATTORNEY GENERAL JOINS GLOBAL WARMING WITCH HUNT – Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey is now the latest state prosecutor to start investigating conservative groups with supposed ties to ExxonMobil, after she issued a subpoena for 40 years of internal company documents and communications with a handful of think tanks… Healey’s office subpoenaed Exxon as part of a multi-state effort among liberal attorneys general to investigate Exxon for allegedly trying to cover up global warming science… Schneiderman, [NY AG], hosted a conference in March with other AGs, including Healey and Walker, where it was announced that more prosecutors would probe Exxon and fight back against Republican attacks on federal environmental regulations… Former Vice President Al Gore attended the event, as did a group of environmental activists — though Schneiderman’s office tried to cover up eco-activists’ involvement. At the event, Schneiderman even suggested global warming skeptics should be put in jail.”

Big Trick Hybrid Op at Orlando or just another Sandy Hoax? – By Preston James, Ph.D, VeteransToday.com – Because the Feds now have taken complete control over the whole Orlando matter, it is exceedingly difficult to get access to any real evidence… The Feds have locked down the hospital, all the bodies (if any at all), all the evidence including ballistics (if any at all), and are strictly controlled what information and evidence their CMMM has access to… So far we have no real evidence that anyone was killed or even wounded…The evidence we all have access to via youtube.com videos show some very poorly done obvious crisis acting, fake-seeming victims with minor extremity wounds supposedly being carried to the hospital six blocks away in the wrong direction, and some weird characters who seem obviously play acting… Now the serious question here is: were there some real shooting victims inside the Pulse club in addition to this crisis actor-driven farce conducted afterwards on the outside? But there are other problems afterwards, such as no obvious evidence of a mass array of ambulances or helicopters to medivac the supposed large number of seriously wounded survivors… The possibility of one gunman alone being able to murder 50 and wound another 53 seems highly improbable statistically… There were a large number of exits, and it would have taken more than one gunman.”

Putin: ‘We know when US will get new missile threatening Russia’s nuclear capability’ – from RT.com – “The main problem, according to the Russian president, is that people do not understand how potentially dangerous the situation really is. “The world is being pulled into a completely new dimension, while [Washington] pretends that nothing’s happening,” Putin said, adding that he has been trying to reach out to his counterparts, but in vain… ‘They say [the missile systems] are part of their defense capability, and are not offensive, that these systems are aimed at protecting them from aggression. It’s not true,’ Putin told the journalists, adding that ‘strategic ballistic missile defense is part of an offensive strategic capability, [and] functions in conjunction with an aggressive missile strike system.’.. The “great danger” is that the same launchers that are used for defense missiles can be used to fire Tomahawks that can be installed “in a matter of hours,” Putin noted. “How do we know what’s inside those launchers? All one needs to do is reprogram [the system], which is an absolutely inconspicuous task,” he said, adding that the governments of the nations on whose territories these NATO complexes are based would have no way of knowing if this had happened.”

Done Deal: America Faces 20 Years of “Air Inferiority” Complex – by South Front, VeteransToday.com – “Contrary to much negative propaganda emanating from Sukhoi’s Western competitors, the T-50 project development turned out to be smoother than many anticipated, largely thanks to the parallel evolution of the Su-27 family of aircraft which was used to test and improve new technologies before incorporating them into the T-50. In that respect, it may well be that Sukhoi has taken over from Lockheed-Martin as the world’s foremost fighter aircraft design bureau, as the long list of developmental problems experienced by both the F-22 and F-35 programs suggests that its design culture was disrupted by the multiple defense mergers of the 1990s. Which means that whereas the T-50 stands on the shoulders of the Su-27 family, the F-35 is being designed as if it were the first product of a newly constituted design bureau… While no single weapon system is in and of itself decisive, the T-50s imminent service entry undermines one of the crucial NATO assumptions, namely that of air superiority. Even the initial small fleet of T-50s, backed up by Su-35 and Su-30 fighters, would be enough to deprive NATO’s land forces of the ability to operate without worrying about attack from the air. Given how unused and unprepared NATO is to operate in the face of opposing airpower, the T-50 is an important component of Russia’s conventional deterrence posture.”

Russia Dismantles the Myth of the American Navy’s Invincibility – by Valentin Vasilescu, InformationClearingHouse.info – “The premise from which Russian experts started building hypersonic vehicles was that American antiballistic missiles cannot intercept any projectile flying in the mesosphere (at altitudes of 35.000- 80.000 m), and that Russia, unlike the US, owns a number of very powerful rocket engines. For example, the Pentagon and NASA cannot send satellites into orbit if Russia does not deliver the RD-180 rocket engines. Russia is on the verge of creating, starting in 2018, the surest antidote to this vulnerability by means of a hypersonic battle. Aerial vehicles are classified according to the airspeed as follows: subsonic (below the speed of 1,220 km/h, – Mach 1) supersonic (speeds between Mach 1 and Mach 5 – up to 6000 km/h), and hypersonic (with speeds between Mach 5 and Mach 10 – up to 12,000 km/h).”

Syria – Russian Surprise Attack Blows Up Kerry’s Delaying Tactic – by Moon Of Alabama, InformationClearingHouse.info – “The Russian hit near Tanf was clearly a surprise. The Russians again caught Washington on the wrong foot. The message to the Obama administration is clear. ‘No more delays and obfuscations. You will separate your moderates NOW or all your assets in Syria will be juicy targets for the Russian air force.‘.. The Russian hits at Tanf and the U.S. proxies there has an additional benefit. The U.S. had planned to let those forces move north towards Deir Ezzor and to defeat the Islamic State in that city. Eventually a “Sunni entity” would be established in south east Syria and west Iraq under U.S. control. Syria would be split apart… The Syrian government and its allies will not allow that. There is a large operation planned to free Deir Ezzor from the Islamic State occupation. Several hundred Syrian government forces have held an isolated airport in Deir Ezzor against many unsuccessful Islamic State attacks. These troops get currently reinforced by additional Syrian army contingents and Hizbullah commandos.A big battle is coming. Deir Ezzor may be freed within the next few month. Any U.S. plans for some eastern Syrian entity are completely unrealistic if the Syrian government can take and hold its largest eastern city.”

Shocking UN Report Lists Crimes by the Ukrainian Authorities – by Arina Tsukanova, Stategic-Culture.org – “The report has also provided yet more evidence that it is not a civil war. It is a war between those who seized power by means of a military coup and the people of Ukraine, a war that is hypocritically being referred to as an ‘anti-terrorist operation’… As noted in the report, «throughout the country, OHCHR continued to receive allegations of enforced disappearances, arbitrary and incommunicado detention, and torture and ill-treatment of people accused by the Ukrainian authorities of ‘trespassing territorial integrity’, ‘terrorism’ or related offenses, or of individuals suspected of being members of, or affiliated with, the armed groups»… People are not just being tortured, but are also being executed without trial. In Sloviansk, for example, the basement of the local college is being used for this purpose. A basement used for torture and summary executions was also discovered by UN inspectors in Izium, Kharkiv district. In addition, «a network of unofficial places of detention, often located in the basement of regional SBU buildings, have been identified». The SBU also has such basements in Odessa and Kharkiv. In February 2016, between 20 to 30 people were detained in the basement of the Kharkiv regional SBU building, and the vast majority of prisoners were not arrested in accordance with legal procedures and were not charged.”

Nanoparticles Enable Remote Control Brains Via Magnetic Field – by Nicholas West, Omnithought.org – “A couple of years ago, a story emerged about scientists working on “Smart Dust” – nanoparticles that could be employed as sensor networks for a range of security and environmental applications. This was followed by the more literal version of Smart Dust, which was designed to open pathways to establish a human brain-computer interface… The brain system was labeled “Neural Dust” and was intended to “monitor the brain from the inside.” Inventors speculated that a network of nanoparticles injected into the brain could measure electrical activity in neurons, then use ultrasound to form a two-way transfer of data. This theoretically would lead to the reading, generation, or alteration of information – i.e., mind control. Most disturbingly, at the time, is that their theories had entered the testing phase and showed some success, albeit on a beetle… New research released by Florida International University indicates that this area of testing has now advanced to mice. Their conclusions and statements about what they have found and where they believe all of this is headed is even less comforting than previous discoveries.”

The Fog of Whoa-ahDozens of U.S. Diplomats, in Memo, Urge Strikes Against Syria’s Assad – by Mark Landler, NYTimes.com – “The expression of dissent came a week after Mr. Assad showed renewed defiance of the United States and other countries, vowing to retake “every inch” of his country from his enemies. The cease-fire, which Mr. Kerry helped negotiate in Munich last winter, has never really taken hold. Mr. Assad has continued to block humanitarian convoys, despite a warning that the United Nations would begin airdrops of food to starving towns… ‘There is an enormous frustration in the bureaucracy about Syria policy,” said Andrew J. Tabler, a Syria expert at the Washington Institute for Near Eastern Policy. “What’s brought this to a head now is the real downturn in the negotiations, not just between the U.S. and Russia, but between Assad and the opposition.’.. Last month, Mr. Kerry rejected the suggestion that the United States and its allies would never use force to stop the bombings or enforce humanitarian access. ‘If President Assad has come to a conclusion there’s no Plan B,’ he said, ‘then he’s come to a conclusion that is totally without any foundation whatsoever and even dangerous.’ “

The Orlando Incident: An Appeal to Practical Reason – by Jonas E. Alexis, VeteransToday.com – “But the incident inexorably shows that politicians and news media outlets have deliberately excluded practical reason from their lexicon. How? Well, for the past three years or so, civilian deaths in places like Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and Syria have been astounding. If you work with numbers or statistical data all the time, then you will feel an urge to ask a puzzling question, ‘How is it that people aren’t mourning for the lives of those people who are being liquidated and humiliated by the oligarchs all over the Middle East?’.. Last year the New York Times reported that ‘when operators in Nevada fire missiles [drones] into remote tribal territories on the other side of the world, they often do not know who they are killing, but are making an imperfect best guess.’[2] In other words, drone strikes are not really based on solid evidence but on “imperfect best guess.” What has been the consequence of this? Civilian deaths by the hundreds.[3] In fact, drone strikes kill innocent civilians “90% of the time.”[4] In five years alone, drone strikes have killed at least 2,400 people. The situation was so bad in 2012 that the Stanford Law School and New York University’s School of Law called for a reevaluation of the entire covert operation.[5]”

SDF-Aleppo-5-31-16French special forces operating in N Syria: Source – from PressTV.ir – “France has dispatched special forces to the northern city of Manbij near the Turkish border in an alleged bid to advise Syria Kurdish forces fighting Daesh terrorists, a French defense ministry source says… ‘The offensive at Manbij (in Aleppo Province) is clearly being backed by a certain number of states including France. It’s the usual support – it’s advisory,’ the unnamed official told AFP on Thursday… The French troops are cooperating with the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) that is a coalition of Kurdish and Arab forces, the official added… He further went on to say that the French special forces will not intervene militarily themselves and are not supposed to engage in combat with Daesh militants.”

Fighting Malevolent AI: Artificial Intelligence, Meet Cybersecurity – by Roman V. Yampolskiy, Omnithought.org – “Today’s narrowly focused artificial intelligence (AI) systems are good only at specific assigned tasks. Their failures are just a warning: Once humans develop general AI capable of accomplishing a much wider range of tasks, expressions of prejudice will be the least of our concerns. It is not easy to make a machine that can perceive, learn and synthesize information to accomplish a set of tasks. But making that machine safe as well as capable is much harder… Our legal system lags hopelessly behind our technological abilities. The field of machine ethics is in its infancy. Even the basic problem of controlling intelligent machines is just now being recognized as a serious concern; many researchers are still skeptical that they could pose any danger at all… Worse yet, the threat is vastly underappreciated. Of the roughly 10,000 researchers working on AI around the globe, only about 100 people – one percent – are fully immersed in studying how to address failures of multi-skilled AI systems. And only about a dozen of them have formal training in the relevant scientific fields – computer science, cybersecurity, cryptography, decision theory, machine learning, formal verification, computer forensics, steganography, ethics, mathematics, network security and psychology. Very few are taking the approach I am: researching malevolent AI, systems that could harm humans and in the worst case completely obliterate our species.”

Bibi-and-DanonIts Official our World is Governed by Psychopaths – by Vanessa Beeley, 21stCenturyWire.com – “The unthinkable has become reality. The global humanitarian and legal entities are now officially in the hands of genocidal psychopaths… Today Israel, illegal state of extremist settlers built upon the bones of an imprisoned, colonized Palestine, has been elected to the chair of the UNGA. The United Nations General Assembly sixth committee or legal committee. This legal committee oversees management of international law. The lawbreaker has become the lawmaker in one fell swoop, ransacking the regulatory halls of justice and laying waste to what remnants of delusion we had left regarding the efficacy of international law.”

Media Refusing to Cover Numerous Witness Accounts of Multiple Shooters in Orlando Massacre – by Claire Bernish, ActivistPost.com – “As for the description possibly more than one shooter had been involved, Gonzalez actually wasn’t alone… A second witness described in an interview aired on the Today Show, “It had to have been more than one person, too, because [the gunfire] was just too continuous … It’s like you’re at a gun range and all you hear is just, BOOM, bang, bang … I can’t even describe it.’.. In footage captured by multiple witnesses outside the club, police appear to be engaging in an exchange of gunfire with an unknown subject. Mateen, however, was killed inside the club, according to most accounts… ‘They’re shooting back and forth,’ the person taping video can be heard saying over a volley of gunfire in the background. ‘Oh. My. God. They’re all shooting back and forth.’ ”

Newspeak Alert!: Plenary Meeting of the Global Coalition to Counter-ISIL – from (US State Dept.) State.gov – “As ISIL continues to lose territory and come under increasing pressure, ambassadors and ‎senior diplomatic representatives from the 66-member Global Coalition to Counter ISIL gathered today for a plenary session at the State Department to review progress in the campaign, discuss further actions to defeat ISIL, and seek additional support for urgent humanitarian and immediate stabilization efforts in liberated areas… Special Presidential Envoy for the Global Coalition to Counter ISIL Brett McGurk opened the briefing by outlining the progress of the multidimensional campaign to pressure ISIL and degrade its global network across all civilian and military lines of effort. He highlighted the numerous fronts where the Coalition is working in conjunction with local forces to apply simultaneous pressure to defeat ISIL including, in Iraq, Fallujah, Hit, Haditha, Rutbah, and areas around Mosul, and in Syria around Manbij, Raqqa, and Marea, and in Libya around Sirte.”

Dr_Bradstreet-SuicidedFamily of autism specialist Dr. Jeffrey Bradstreet says forensic evidence points to murder, impossible for bullet entry to be self-inflicted – by Julie Wilson, NaturalNews.com – ” ‘It is our 100 percent belief that Jeff did not commit suicide. Not only because of who Jeff was as a person, but because we looked at the science of it; we looked at the medical proof and it’s just not possible that Jeff took his own life,’ commented Thom… ‘Unfortunately, there’s an ongoing investigation so there’s not a lot we can share about the specifics. But the way the bullet entered into the body, it’s almost impossible for an individual to do that and it was far enough away that it left no tattooing, no significant burn marks or anything like that.’(emph. added)

Housing Struggle Continues in Detroit Defying Landlords and Bankers – by Abayomi Azikiwe, GlobalResearch.ca – “DED along with other social justice and labor activists rallied to the defense of the Shannon home due to the compelling character of the case. There is a proliferation of similar scenarios across the city stemming from the real estate and banking collapse of 2007-2008, leaving tens of thousands of vacant homes many of which have been turned over to the unscrupulous “developers” and the notorious Detroit Land Bank Authority (DLBA)… A number of these so-called real estate developers exploit the situation when they are given preference in purchasing the properties through the Wayne County auction and those conducted by the DLBA. The homes are often sold on “land contracts” because despite the ruling class propaganda that Detroit is being revitalized with property values increasing as well as rents, the banks wrote less than 500 mortgages during the entire year of 2015… After purchasing homes on land contracts from these companies, the residents soon discover that there are property tax and other liens on the homes. Others discovered that they do not even own the home since their names do not appear on the deeds.”

The Disturbing Truth Behind U.S. Drone Assassinations That the Government Tried to Keep Secret – During one four-and-a-half-month period, nearly 90 percent of the people killed in airstrikes were not the intended targets – by Jeremy Scahill, Alternet.org – “The documents show that the military designated people it killed in targeted strikes as EKIA, “enemy killed in action,” even if they were not the intended targets of the strike. Unless evidence posthumously emerged to prove the males killed were not terrorists or “unlawful enemy combatants,” EKIA remained their designation, according to the source. That process, he said, ‘is insane. But we’ve made ourselves comfortable with that. The intelligence community, JSOC, the CIA, and everybody that helps support and prop up these programs, they’re comfortable with that idea.’ The source described official U.S. government statements minimizing the number of civilian casualties inflicted by drone strikes as ‘exaggerating at best, if not outright lies.’ “

Number-Temp-Workers-June2016Something Big That Always Happens Right Before The Official Start Of A Recession Has Just Happened – by Michael Snyder, TheEconomicCollapseBlog.com – “In this chart, you can see that the number of temporary workers peaked and started to decline rapidly before we even got to the recession of 2001. And you will notice that the number of temporary workers also peaked and started to decline rapidly before we even got to the recession of 2008. This shows why the temporary workforce is considered to be a “leading indicator” for the U.S. economy as a whole. When the number of temporary workers peaks and then starts to fall steadily, that is a major red flag. And that is why it is so incredibly alarming that the number of temporary workers peaked in December 2015 and has fallen quite a bit since then…

Assad: “Aleppo Is The Grave Of Butcher Erdogan’s Dreams” – by Brandon Turbeville, ActivistPost.com – “Assad also addressed the failure of the Geneva peace talks and the recent failure of the ceasefire agreement which ended after “opposition” negotiator and leader of Jaish al-Islam, “Mohammad Alloush,” abandoned the talks. Assad said that, at no point, were the talks ever genuine on the part of the so-called opposition and that, after these groups failed to get what they wanted in Geneva, ‘their response was an open declaration of supporting terrorism and withdrawing from the cessation of hostilities agreement… this was what we saw of targeting civilians and hospitals in Aleppo.’ “

China-Patrols_South_China_SeaThe Pentagon’s Great Wall of Impotence – by Pepe Escobar, RT.com – “As expressed by neocon Carter, Pentagon rhetoric – faithful to its own estimation of China as the second biggest “existential threat” to the US (Russia is first) – revolves around the same themes; US military might and superiority is bound to last forever; we are the “main underwriter of Asian security” for, well, forever; and China better behave in the South China Sea – or else… This is all embedded in the much ballyhooed but so far anemic “pivoting to Asia” advanced by the lame duck Obama administration – but bound to go on overdrive in the event Hillary Clinton becomes the next tenant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue… Real threats are predictably embedded in the rhetoric. According to Carter, if Beijing reclaims land in the Scarborough Shoal in the South China Sea, ‘it will result in actions being taken by the both United States and … by others in the region.‘.. What’s left for China, in Pentagonese, is just to be a member of a hazy “principled security network” for Asia – which will also help protect the East against “Russia’s worrying actions”. Carter mentioned “principled” no less than 37 times in his speech. “Principled” cheerleaders so far include Japan, India, the Philippines, Vietnam and Australia… So here’s an instant translation: we do a NATO in Asia; we control it; you will answer to us; and then we encircle you – and Russia – for good. If China says no, that’s simple. Carter proclaimed Beijing will erect a “Great Wall of self-isolation” in the South China Sea.”

The Trap Is Set: Governments Exploring ‘Debt For Land’ Swaps With World Bank – from Technocracy.news – “TN Note: Or is it the other way around? That is, World Bank exploring Swaps with debt-laden countries. The only countries that may apply are those who are actively sworn to implement and support Sustainable Development. The World Bank calls these ‘conditionalities’ and they are nothing short of extortion to force countries to change policies against their will. In this case, Jamaica does not realize that they are playing right into the spider’s web that may well spell their ultimate demise as a nation. As to the global elite, this is nothing short of a brazen land grab that includes valuable resources to be locked up and away from public use.”

Muawiya_Hassan__Agha-to_the_executionSYRIA: US Requests Protection for Al Qaeda as Terrorist Atrocities in Aleppo Escalateby Vanessa Beeley – 21stCenturyWire.com – “This morning as the US, NATO & Gulf backed terrorists continue to rain missiles down upon the Syrian people besieged [by the terrorists] in the western sectors of Aleppo that are refuge to the majority of Aleppo’s population, a further 8 Syrian Arab Army soldiers have been taken prisoner and paraded on camera, blindfolded and shackled. Their fate is in the hands of drug fuelled terrorists supported, armed and defended by the US who has just requested that Russia desists from targeting Al Qaeda in Syria, Al Nusra… We have taken a decision not to show the disturbing video of these prisoners out of sensitivity for the suffering of their families who know how badly they will be treated after a previous video [also not shown] was released showing the public torture, humiliation and final execution of two other SAA prisoners at the hands of the terrorists and their associates, the US-NATO funded White Helmets… We were told second hand [via Twitter] that Raed Saleh, himself deported from the US for “extremist connections” had “sacked” one of the so-called voluntary White Helmet agents for his involvement in and evident enjoyment of this criminal act of cruelty that violates the Geneva Convention relative to treatment of prisoners of war. However, no official statement has been made by the White Helmets to categorically condemn this criminal brutality.”

Germany Preparing for War Against Russia – by Eric Zuesse, RINF.com – “According to a report issued on June 6th in German Economic News (Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten, or DWN), the German government is preparing to go to war against Russia, and has in draft-form a Bundeswehr report declaring Russia to be an enemy nation. DWN says: ‘The Russian secret services have apparently thoroughly studied the paper. In advance of the paper’s publication, a harsh note of protest has been sent to Berlin: The head of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Russian State Duma, Alexei Puschkow, has posted the Twitter message: ‘The decision of the German government declaring Russia to be an enemy shows Merkel’s subservience to the Obama administration.’ ‘.. Back on February 17th, DWN had reported that German Chancellor Merkel “will develop a new military doctrine” declaring, “The ‘annexation’ of Crimea by Russia is the basis for military action against Moscow.” Apparently, that prior report will soon be fulfilled.”

Beauty Contestants Now for World War, not World Peace – by David Swanson, OpEdNews.com – “Last year, when Miss Italy said she wished she could live during World War II, survivors of that worst ever horror that humanity has inflicted on itself, and other people of normal intelligence in Italy, were scandalized… But when a soon-to-be Miss USA recently praised the U.S. military as a member of it, as a participant in it, despite the world’s view that the U.S. military is the greatest threat to peace in the world, the U.S. media adored this new development… This is a 180 degree reversal of the traditional stance of beauty contestants, who had endlessly said they favored world peace. But of course it’s framed as something else entirely. With war totally and amorally normalized, a female (and African-American) member of the military, even a beauty contestant, is interpreted as a symbol of enlightened progress, along the lines of the current neoliberal push to force every young woman to register for the draft… Miss USA joined the military at age 17, the Washington Post tells us in passing, something illegal under the Convention on the Rights of the Child, a treaty ratified by every single nation on earth except the United States.”

US Government Intentionally Destroyed 9/11 Evidence – by Paul Craig Roberts and Washingtons Blog, PaulCraigRoberts.org – “If the story that the US government told us about 9/11 were true, why did the government destroy the evidence, lie to the 9/11 Commission, and prevent a real investigation?.. The clear and indisputable answer is that if the evidence had not been destroyed and a real investigation had occurred, the conclusion would have been that 9/11 was an inside job designed to give the neoconservatives their “new Pearl Harbor” necessary to launch their wars in the Middle East. The extraordinary gullibility of the American people is responsible for 15 years of warfare, destroyed countries, and millions of dead, maimed, orphaned, and displaced people, and for the rise of a police state in the United States. The ignorance and gullibility of the American people are responsible for these massive crimes against humanity and for Americans’ loss of their constitutional protections… See: http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2016/06/us-government-intentionally-destroys-911-evidence.html

From the Way-Back Machine: Why Anti-Authoritarians are Diagnosed as Mentally Ill – by Bruce Levine, PhD, MadInAmerica.com – “Anti-authoritarians question whether an authority is a legitimate one before taking that authority seriously. Evaluating the legitimacy of authorities includes assessing whether or not authorities actually know what they are talking about, are honest, and care about those people who are respecting their authority. And when anti-authoritarians assess an authority to be illegitimate, they challenge and resist that authority—sometimes aggressively and sometimes passive-aggressively, sometimes wisely and sometimes not… Some activists lament how few anti-authoritarians there appear to be in the United States. One reason could be that many natural anti-authoritarians are now psychopathologized and medicated before they achieve political consciousness of society’s most oppressive authorities… Gaining acceptance into graduate school or medical school and achieving a PhD or MD and becoming a psychologist or psychiatrist means jumping through many hoops, all of which require much behavioral and attentional compliance to authorities, even to those authorities that one lacks respect for. The selection and socialization of mental health professionals tends to breed out many anti-authoritarians.”

Houston, We Have a Glyphosate Problem – by Makia Freeman, WakingTimes.com – “Last year in 2015, Dr. Anthony Samsel and Dr. Stefanie Seneff analyzed 15,000 pages of scientific documents on Monsanto’s glyphosate research. Their conclusion was that Monsanto’s claims of safety were entirely false. Monsanto knew they had a glyphosate problem, that glyphosate was responsible for a variety of organ failures and cancers, but hid and distorted the data to protect its profit. As Justin Gardner writes in Newly Unsealed Documents Reveal EPA & Monsanto Always Knew Roundup Was Deadly Toxic: ‘According to Samsel, Monsanto intentionally corrupted animal studies by using animals that were already sick with cancer and organ failures as controls. Based on the metrics used in these studies, this made those animals exposed to glyphosate appear no more afflicted than the control animals because all of the animals ended up getting sick.’.. ‘Pretending to be the amino acid Glycine, [glyphosate] can cross the blood-brain barrier and start interfering in our brain chemistry. It can mis-fold proteins and cause them to behave unnaturally and perform unintended tasks with potential negative effects for us… ‘It can and does get into our bone marrow and start producing T-cells and helper cells with this rogue chemical fitted in place of glycine. It can get into our DNA and RNA and be responsible for producing potentially dangerous transgenic mutants in our offsprings that will show negative effects even a few generations down the line… ‘And once it is into our biology, there is no effective way for our immune system, or for man, to get rid of it and replace it, molecule by molecule, with the original glycine.’ -Tony Mitra

 

High School Dropout Designs Refrigerator that Cools Without Electricity – by Vic Bishop, WakingTimes.com – ” ‘During his childhood, he saw earthen pans/hot plates being manufactured manually on the potters wheel. Using this, one person can only make about 100 units per day. He had seen roof tiles being manufactured in large quantity on hand press, which made him think why cannot earthen pans be made the same way?.. ‘In 1988, he left his job and took a loan from a money lender to start his own earthen plate manufacturing factory. He purchased a small piece of land for the factory, dyes and presses, soil mixing machine, electric potters wheel and other scrap objects. Then he modified the roof tile making hand press and developed a hand press machine having capacity to produce 700 earthen pans per day.’ [Source]”

Venezuela-for-the-RichCensored Images from Venezuela Reveal Economic Collapse is Only for the Poor – by Alex Pietrowski, WakingTimes.com “The divide between rich and poor in our world has perhaps never been as wide and as visible as it is today. The world elite are making more money than ever, and as they’re buying more ridiculous and more lavish toys than ever, the rest of the world is already feeling the pinch of a manipulated global economy in decline… The nightmare of bad government has always been felt most severely by those who do not belong to the ruling elite or the protected upper classes of society, and recently, events in Venezuela serve as yet another example of how socialist governments can ruin once thriving national economies by sanctioned corruption. Now it is becoming evident that even in the Venezuela capital, Caracas, breadlines and hunger pangs are only for certain classes of citizens… Most of the press coverage of the ongoing economic and political crisis in Venezuela have shows the struggles that many are facing in Caracas, where electricity and even food are being rationed by the government and the currency is undergoing extreme inflation. This is undoubtedly causing serious civil unrest, and the nation is drifting ever more closely to civil war as public calls for the ouster of unelected socialist dictator Nicolás Maduro escalate.”

More_Debt-More_MoneyOur Debt-Based Monetary System – by Alfred Adask, Adask.wordpress.com – “Bankers began to realize that they could issue paper debt-instruments that were “counterfeit” because they weren’t issued in trade for an actual deposit of gold into the banker’s strongbox. There was no gold to “back” these counterfeit debt-instruments… Bankers could still spend these counterfeit notes knowing that they’d almost never be redeemed by people coming to the bank to demand an asset (gold) in return for the counterfeit paper debt-instrument issued by the banker. Soon, by using counterfeit paper debt-instruments, the banker began to buy up all of burros, all of the mud bricks and just about everything else—until he literally owned the whole community, purchased with nothing but paper debt-instruments with no intrinsic value (they weren’t backed by gold or silver assets).”

The U.S. Operation In Raqqa The “ISIS” Capital, Why Now? – by Afraa Dagher, ActivistPost.com – “The opposition recently revealed that a secret document has been signed between themselves and Qatar. In 2012, to get support, in exchange of overthrow president Assad, the Saudi kingdom funded the extremist Islamist terrorists in order to turn over power in Syria to those extremists!.. Why doesn’t the US and Israel want Assad in as head of the Syrian government? Why do they prefer a caliphate and “moderate rebels”?.. First, it should be remembered that these “rebels” vowed to destroy Syria and reduce the number of Syrian Soldiers… Second, they never made any demands regarding the Israeli-occupied territories… These terrorists would give more territory to Turkey… They would allow the Qatari gas line to cross the Syrian lands!.. And what did they achieve from their vows to the US?.. Nothing but more sabotage of Syria and its people! Not only that, but they are now running private businesses under international protection due to their classification as a moderate opposition!”

Agenda 21: An Introduction – by Branko Malić, 21stCenturyWire.com – “Bearing in mind that any Constitution – not to mention a global one – is a document to be as much as possible read and interpreted in it’s own right, we’ll keep description of historical circumstances of Agenda 21 inception to bare outlines. Although it is by no means a document written in historical vacuum – and was followed with whole piles of similar ones, the latest being the so called Agenda 2030 – even with minimal knowledge of historical circumstances and other related documents, this voluminous text (351 pg.) clearly summarizes and uncovers the labors of a policy progressively forming our lives for more than two decades, without most of us even knowing it; the policy whose historical roots are too deep to explore here, but whose ambitions are megalomaniacal and dangerous to such a degree that no amount of political correctness can adequately hide them… Agenda 21 is a very straightforward document. To understand it properly, one only needs to take it literally and suspend his own cynicism. Namely, then and only then the cynicism of it’s authors erupts in our understanding like a volcano, and things suddenly get their true and ominous perspective.”

‘Israeli annexation bombshell imminent’ – from PressTV.ir – “The Israeli regime will present a bill to the Knesset in the coming weeks, calling for the annexation of 60% of the occupied West Bank, the Maariv newspaper has revealed… According to the paper, preliminary talks have been held to annex Area C of the West Bank where more than 350,000 illegal Israeli settlers are based… The area is currently ruled by the military but an annexation would require Israeli law to be imposed and Palestinians living in the area to identify as Arab Israelis… Many members of Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu’s cabinet are fervently in favor of the annexation. Last week, minister of judiciary affairs Ayelet Shaked said she was working on a plan to apply Israeli law to Area C… Naftali Bennett, the leader of the extreme right-wing Jewish Home Party, which is part of the ruling coalition, also said, ‘It is better for Israel to begin annexing Area C.’.. The Israeli occupiers of the Palestinian lands deem the West Bank as “liberated land,” saying formal annexation is only a matter of time.”

Turkey is Preparing an Offensive Military Operation in Northern Syria – by Said Al-Khalaki, InformationClearingHouse.info – “…the situation doesn’t suit the main sponsors of the “Syrian revolution”, i.e. Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar which had already planned how the country would be divided between them… Turkey is interested in Syria’s division most of all. The most attractive “piece” for Turkey is Northern Syria and its destroyed economic capital Aleppo… Obviously, the seized Northern territories would be a step forward in Erdogan’s plan to resurrect the Ottoman Empire he is dreaming about. That is why the seizure of Aleppo is a strategic goal for Erdogan and his partners… The Turkish government has been supporting Syrian terrorists from the very outset of the war in March 2011… Now, the most important point of the face-off is Aleppo province. As locals say, more than 1000 terrorists arrived there between April to mid-May. The fighters were accompanied by trucks with arms and ammunition and off-road vehicles with large-caliber machine guns. Notably, the vehicles’ deployment is covered by Turkish artillery, regularly shelling Syrian border regions from the Turkish side. It’s clear that all these actions are the evidence of the fact that terrorists are preparing a large-scale offensive in Aleppo… No doubt, the attack on Aleppo is a part of the “hybrid” war implemented by Turkey in Syria. The artillery shellings of Syrian territories and the support for Syrian terrorists – Turkish news agency Anadolu calls these “a fight against ISIS.” And the Turkish government justify Erdogan’s desire to seize Northern Syria by claiming that it is just an attempt to create the so-called “safety zone” for refugees.”

Netanyahu’s government may be near collapse, report says – from JPost.com – “Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government may be on the verge of collapse according to Israel’s Channel 10… In a report Friday night, the TV station quoted unnamed “party leaders” saying that Netanyahu’s surprise move to bring the right-wing Yisrael Beiteinu party into the coalition may be backfiring on him… In the past eight days, two ministers have resigned: Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon, of Likud, following reports that he would be replaced with the hawkish Avigdor Liberman, and Environmental Minister Avi Gabai of Kulanu. Both harshly criticized Netanyahu in their resignation announcements… Gabai, who resigned Friday, said Israel’s increasingly “extremist” government was leading Israel on a path to destruction and that he ‘found it difficult’ to be part of Netanyahu’s government for several reasons, including how it ‘totally upset the relationship with the world’s most important power – the one safeguarding our security interests,’ referring to the United States.”

Lightning-on-Wind_TurbineAnother Climate Alarmist Admits Real Motive Behind Warming Scare – from Investors.com – “Fraud: While the global warming alarmists have done a good job of spreading fright, they haven’t been so good at hiding their real motivation. Yet another one has slipped up and revealed the catalyst driving the climate scare… We have been told now for almost three decades that man has to change his ways or his fossil-fuel emissions will scorch Earth with catastrophic warming. Scientists, politicians and activists have maintained the narrative that their concern is only about caring for our planet and its inhabitants. But this is simply not true. The narrative is a ruse. They are after something entirely different… If they were honest, the climate alarmists would admit that they are not working feverishly to hold down global temperatures — they would acknowledge that they are instead consumed with the goal of holding down capitalism and establishing a global welfare state… Have doubts? Then listen to the words of former United Nations climate official Ottmar Edenhofer: ‘One has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy. This has almost nothing to do with the environmental policy anymore, with problems such as deforestation or the ozone hole,’ said Edenhofer, who co-chaired the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change working group on Mitigation of Climate Change from 2008 to 2015… So what is the goal of environmental policy?.. ‘We redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy,’ said Edenhofer… For those who want to believe that maybe Edenhofer just misspoke and doesn’t really mean that, consider that a little more than five years ago he also said that ‘the next world climate summit in Cancun is actually an economy summit during which the distribution of the world’s resources will be negotiated.’.. Mad as they are, Edenhofer’s comments are nevertheless consistent with other alarmists who have spilled the movement’s dirty secret. Last year, Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of U.N.’s Framework Convention on Climate Change, made a similar statement.” (some emphases added)

Modern Psychology Doing its Part to Mass Produce Obedient Sheeple – by Dylan Charles, WakingTimes.com – “Has modern psychology has become the science of disempowerment?.. You no longer have to be a bona fide psychiatrist to prescribe mood and mind-altering pharmaceuticals to patients young and old, as any general practitioner is now allowed to experiment on their patients in this regard. This helps to explain why some 78 million Americans are presently taking psychiatric pharmaceutical drugs, roughly 25% of the U.S. population. Which came first the diagnosis or the pill?.. Psychology is the study of behavior and the mind, but the role it plays in mass producing obedient sheeple is increasingly apparent… In 1961, well after the advent of lithium and thorazine, psychologist Stanley Milgram conducted what is now one of the world’s most famous psychological experiments. So critical it is supposed to be to our understanding of human nature that it is taught in nearly every psychology class… The Miligram experiment, as it’s known, is hailed as a milestone in our understanding of how people’s ethics can drastically change when responsibility for their actions is deferred on to an authority figure, such as an ‘expert’ or a leader. Intrigued by the role of Nazi military personnel in concentration camps during WWII, Milgram wanted to know how much coercion people needed in order to willingly inflict harm on another person.”

Aleppo_Doctors_ProtestSyria: Aleppo Doctors Fight Back Against US, NATO False Flags and Terrorism – by Proletären, 21stCenturyWire.com – ” ‘Most of the city is under the Syrian government’s control. A small part is in the hands of armed groups, or terrorists as we consider they are.’ ~ Dr Tony Sayegh… Aleppo is Syria’s largest city. During the conflict’s first year Aleppo was relatively calm, unlike many other Syrian cities. In July 2012 hell broke out. The story from medical doctor Tony Sayegh about life in the million-city is dramatically different from the one we usually hear. In this interview he talks about living under terror, about the sanctions and the road to peace… Hell on earth. Hospitals bombings. Tens of thousands of refugees… No one has been able to escape the dramatic news about Aleppo in North Western Syria. But Tony Sayegh is not satisfied with how the Western media describes the situation. The first thing he does when we reach him on the phone is to say thank you.”

Silencing America as It Prepares for War – by John Pilger, Counterpunch.org – “Returning to the United States in an election year, I am struck by the silence. I have covered four presidential campaigns, starting with 1968; I was with Robert Kennedy when he was shot and I saw his assassin, preparing to kill him. It was a baptism in the American way, along with the salivating violence of the Chicago police at the Democratic Party’s rigged convention. The great counter revolution had begun… The first to be assassinated that year, Martin Luther King, had dared link the suffering of African-Americans and the people of Vietnam. When Janis Joplin sang, ‘Freedom’s just another word for nothing left to lose’, she spoke perhaps unconsciously for millions of America’s victims in faraway places… ‘We lost 58,000 young soldiers in Vietnam, and they died defending your freedom. Now don’t you forget it.’ So said a National Parks Service guide as I filmed last week at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington. He was addressing a school party of young teenagers in bright orange T-shirts. As if by rote, he inverted the truth about Vietnam into an unchallenged lie.”

‘Unprecedented steps’: Russian military explores Kuril chain island as potential Pacific Fleet base – from RT.com – ” Russia might soon open a new naval base for its Pacific Fleet on one of the islands in the Kuril chain. A special military and geological commission is now assessing the infrastructure potential of Matua island, which Japan has also laid claims to… Some 200 members of the joint expedition by the Russian Ministry of Defence and the Russian Geographical Society are currently on Matua reviewing the state of infrastructure on the abandoned Soviet military base there… ‘The main goal of the expedition is to study the possibility of basing Pacific Fleet forces there,’ commander of the Eastern Military District, Colonel-General Sergey Surovikin said at a meeting with the district’s senior commanders… The expedition forces have built a mobile camp on Matua and are assessing three wartime runways to estimate the condition of the airfield and prospects of restoring them…”

France paralyzed by the ‘War of the Lefts’ – by Pepe Escobar, RT.com – “May 2016 in France is certainly no May 1968 remix. It features a vortex of complicating factors, such as the “terra terra terra” psychosis (Paris is in a semi-disguised state of siege); the ongoing Nuit Debout movement at the Place de la Republique – the French version of Occupy Wall Street; and police with their nerves on edge complaining, and even demonstrating, that they are not getting all the love they need from the general population… May 2016 is essentially configured as a battle between the socialist government and French unions. It’s bound to get nastier. Police figures suggest 153,000 strikers/demonstrators this past Thursday – a huge mobilization day that touched public services and air transport; unions claim there were almost 300,000. The executive is beginning to use force to unblock key refineries. Panic at empty petrol stations is becoming the norm… Protestors clash with riot police during a demonstration against French labour law reforms in Paris, France, May 17, 2016. © Gonzalo Fuentes ‘Hollande desperate to pass French labor reforms by any means’… The Hollande-Valls duo has gone hardcore; the labor reform bill must be approved, otherwise that’s the end of the government. Valls’ red line is that if the bill goes, he also goes. Yet he’s already been forced to (slightly) backtrack; he’s now allowing “modifications” and “improvements” to the bill.”

Attorney Takes On State of California over Forced Vaccinations SB277 – by Denver Valenti, NaturalBlaze.com – “Almost a year ago, Governor Brown of California signed SB277 for mandatory vaccines which has been set to go into effect on July 1, 2016. The bill was prompted by the 2014 Disneyland measles outbreak and historically low levels of vaccination in some California schools. This law removes all exemptions: religious, medical, and philosophical. However, attorney T. Matthew Phillips believes the first amendment allows parents to exercise religion in the face of state-mandated vaccinations. He also says that children have a constitutional right to go to school, regardless of medical procedures. Ultimately a judge will decide which is more important: educating kids or vaccinating them.”

Henningsen on RT: ‘US has a covert agenda in Raqqa, Syria’w/RT video – from 21stCenturyWire.com & ARANews.net – ” ‘In Syria today with Gen. Joe Votel, Centcom commander, who visited anti-ISIS fighters and US military advisers,’ Washington Post columnist David Ignatius posted on Twitter on Saturday evening, most likely just before leaving Syria… Speaking to ARA News in Kobane, Kurdish official Idris Nassan said that the visit is significant sign of American support for SDF forces… Previously, the Pentagon had fears that the Kurds might opt to work with the Russians after Turkey pressured the United States to stop their cooperation with the Kurds. But the visit shows the importance of the US alliance with the Kurdish-led SDF forces… ‘It means that US military support for SDF will continue and US seriously plans a long-term coalition with the most reliable forces on the Syrian ground. I think that the US interest in Kurds, which is reflected in these high-ranking visits, will soon lead to accept their desire to liberate west of the Euphrates and postpone battle of Raqqa,’ Nasan told ARA News.”

Paris-Riot_PoliceFrance: “State of Emergency” Extends State Terrorism as Nationwide Protests Gather Momentum – by Vanessa Beeley, 21stCenturyWire.com – “As riots, strikes and protests sweep across France, ostensibly driven by a revolt against new labour laws introduced by the Government’s labour reform bill, we ask if we are seeing the escalation of the chaos strategy designed to create unrest and divide social movements, thus undermining any genuine grass-roots organisation against the ever extending “state of emergency”… “In France, the ex-Central Director of the National Police, Frédéric Péchenard, forcefully criticised the way in which the Minister of the Interior is managing the current security crisis. He noted the incoherence of extending the state of emergency during the Euro 2016 football games – either there exists a serious threat, in which case the state of emergency should be declared and all major gatherings forbidden, or else the risk is only moderate, in which case the state of emergency should be lifted in order to organise the Euro 2016.” ~ VoltaireNet

CDC forced to reveal documents proving Thimerosal vaccine preservative causes autism – by Mike Adams, NaturalNews.com – “While the mainstream media — largely funded by pharmaceutical corporations — ridiculously continues to claim any link between autism and vaccines is a “conspiracy theory,” the link actually turns out to be evidence-based FACT… From the Health Advice story linked above: When the results of the Verstraeten study were first reported outside the CDC in 2005, there was no evidence that anyone but Dr. Verstraeten within the CDC had known of the very high 7.6-fold elevated relative risk of autism from exposure to Thimerosal during infancy. But now, clear evidence exists. A newly-acquired abstract from 1999 titled, “Increased risk of developmental neurologic impairment after high exposure to Thimerosal containing vaccine in first month of life” required the approval of top CDC officials prior to its presentation at the Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS) conference.”

DARPA Teams Up With Mainstream Media to Push Microchips for Your Children – by Phillip Schneider, WakingTimes.com – “It’s hard to imagine the mainstream media stooping to an even lower low than where they’re at right now, but rest assured, if you start to become comfortable with them they’ll push that line even farther… This time, NBC is pushing that Orwellian envelope to an extreme level as it advocates for human microchipping of children ‘sooner rather than later’… In a recently televised report from NBC News, they liken having your child microchipped by the state at birth to something as societally normalized as bar codes for consumer goods: ‘When barcodes first came out in the late 1960s, people were appalled. They were wary of them and did not understand the concept. Today, it is so commonplace, we don’t even notice it. A microchip would work much in the same way’ – NBC… This statement reveals the mentality that these types of people have, thinking of us not as human beings, but as cattle needing to be tagged by their our owners.”

Genetically modified polio virus being redeployed as a cancer treatment… FDA pushing for quick approval… what could possibly go wrong? – by Daniel Barker, NaturalNews.com – “The treatment, which uses a genetically-altered version of the polio virus to fight cancer cells, has been given fast track status for Phase 2 trials. If the Phase 2 trials are successful, Phase 3 testing may not be required, and a drug based on the treatment could be made available within a few years… Phase 1 trials of the treatment on an aggressive form of brain cancer called glioblastoma were successful enough to give many people hope that a revolutionary new cancer-fighting weapon might be on the horizon… From The Daily Beast: ‘The Duke medical team elegantly describes the mechanism and their experience with the drug using cautious tones and measured excitement. The tone of correspondent Scott Pelley’s narrative, however, is considerably less guarded. ‘Some of the patients [in the study] use words that doctors don’t use, like “miracle” and “cure.” ‘.. In an email to Med Page Today, clinical director of the Breast Oncology Program at the University of Michigan, Daniel Hayes, MD, called the original 60 Minutes piece “irresponsible journalism.”.. Hayes wrote: ‘This is what’s wrong with medical coverage by the press … and cancer coverage specifically. Breathless hype over ‘breakthroughs’ before the scientific process has demonstrated that the new approach is or is not better than what we do.’ “

Narendra_ModiModi Treads the Path of Sultan Erdogan – by Tayyab Baloch, GPolit.com – “now Modi has adopted the same alleyway of Erdogan in India through joining the unipolar club to contain regional integration. China’s belt road initiative has reached to the door of India but unfortunately, Modi is not only going to close the door but he has also adopted an aggressive policy to barricade it in the south Asian region and the Indian Ocean. Indian current strategic tilt towards the US and Saudi Arabia has signaled that India is not only going to on board with unipolar world to contain Russia and China led multipolarity of globe from the Indian Ocean to Asia-pacific region but it is also going to line up herself with Saudi Arabia and Turkey in the new emerging The Saudi-Chinese Cold War. For this purpose, Saudi Arabia is facilitating India in South Asia and Muslim countries to contain China while as a result India is assisting Saudi Arabia in Iranian Sistan e Baluchistan against Iran.”

Russia forces kill 5 Daesh militants in North Caucasus – from PressTV.ir – “Russian law enforcement forces have killed five militants linked with the Daesh terrorist group and arrested three others during separate counterterrorism operations in the North Caucasus republic of Ingushetia… ‘As a result of a special operation in the town of Malgobek and an anti-terrorist operation in the town of Nazran, five militants have been killed and three others detained following fierce clashes,’ Russia’s National Anti-Terrorism Committee said in a statement released on Thursday… ‘Russian special services have intelligence that certain Daesh groups are preparing terrorist attacks in Russia and European nations,’ Andrey Przhezdomsky, the committee’s spokesman warned… ‘In particular, a battalion formed mainly from recruits from North Caucasus headed by Akhmed Chetayev, nicknamed One-Handed,’ Przhezdomsky noted… He went on to say Russian border guards and special services are doing their best to stem the flow of terrorists to and from Syria through Turkey.”

Facebook deliberately censors content on certain topics, including vaccines and immigration – by J. D. Heyes, NaturalNews.com – “In recent days there has been much buzz over the allegation that Facebook censors its “trending” news stories to drown out conservative and right-leaning news and websites, even if those stories are in fact trending across the Web. Former Facebook “news curators” – the editors responsible for identifying those trending stories, writing up short descriptions and adding a link to the stories in the trending section – said there was a concerted effort to push Left-wing and liberal news sites, even if their stories weren’t trending… But now, as Breitbart News is reporting, advocates for trimming immigration into the U.S. say those claims are just the beginning… The immigration control advocates say that Facebook also suppresses users who promote material that could ultimately undermine the social media giant’s lobbying efforts to expand immigration law to include more [cheaper] foreign labor. They also say that FB has stopped being a fair communications facilitator and now is, instead, a “political combatant” that is used much the way Left-wing academics use college campuses to trash conservatism and promote all manner of liberal causes.”

Media Ignoring a MAJOR Part of the Facebook Scandal – by Jeff Dunetz, MRCTV.org – “The liberal media are all over one part of the Facebook scandal story – and ignoring another. Generally, media have covered the accusations that the social media site is censoring conservative news and sources from their trending news feed. Coincidentally, this is also the part of the Facebook story affecting the media… Potentially a bigger scandal (because it affects more people) is the accusation that Facebook censors individual member pages, blogs, smaller media outlets, and discussion groups reflecting a conservative point of view. Sometimes, the sites are shut down, sometimes they are simply threatened into silence… (Tod) Starnes’ interest in Facebook censorship may stem from the time he was placed in the Facebook penitentiary. You may want to make sure there are no kids in the room before you go on (sarcasm) because the Fox News host’s “horrible” violation was a post mentioning four offensive subjects in the same paragraph. The proper nouns were: Paula Deen, Chick-fil-A, the NRA and Jesus Christ… ‘I’m about as politically incorrect as you can get. I’m wearing an NRA ball cap, eating a Chick-fil-A sandwich, reading a Paula Deen cookbook and sipping a 20-ounce sweet tea while sitting in my Cracker Barrel rocking chair with the Gaither Vocal Band singing ‘Jesus Saves’ on the stereo and a Gideon’s Bible in my pocket. Yes sir, I’m politically incorrect and happy as a June bug.’ “

Israeli_bomb-in_GazaIsraeli warplanes bomb besieged Gaza Strip – from PressTV.ir – “According to Palestinian media reports, the airstrikes hit an area west of Rafah and the Nuseirat refugee camp located in the southern and central Gaza Strip respectively… No casualties have yet been reported in the Thursday morning attacks that followed alleged reports of a rocket fired at an open area in the western part of the occupied Palestinian territories on Wednesday night… In early July 2014, Israel waged a war on the Gaza Strip. The 50-day military aggression, which ended on August 26, 2014, killed nearly 2,200 Palestinians, including 577 children. Over 11,100 others – including 3,374 children, 2,088 women and 410 elderly people – were also wounded in the war. Israel continues to carry out attacks on the Palestinian strip from time to time.”

Israeli Start-up to Provide DHS With Facial Recognition Tech That Digs Up Character Traits – by Joseph Jankowski, ActivistPost.com – “The idea of having artificial intelligence (AI) profiling you to find out who you are, simply by looking at your face, is an idea that might scare some into thinking that this technology could lead to some very inaccurate predictions and government overreach… Pedro Domingos, a professor of computer science at the University of Washington, is one of those people who think this type of AI profiling could get a little messy… ‘Can I predict that you’re an ax murderer by looking at your face and therefore should I arrest you?’ Domingos told the Washington Times. ‘You can see how this would be controversial.’.. Alexander Todorov, a Princeton psychology professor whose research includes facial perception, is also concerned… ‘The evidence that there is accuracy in these judgments is extremely weak,’ he said. ‘Just when we thought that physiognomy ended 100 years ago. Oh, well.’ ”

Bibi-VallsPalestinians reject Netanyahu’s offer for direct talks – from PressTV.ir – “Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah has dismissed an Israeli proposal for direct negotiations instead of a French multilateral “peace” initiative, calling it an attempt to “buy time.”.. Hamdallah made the comments as he met French Prime Minister Manuel Valls, who has held talks in Israel and the Palestinian territories this week to push Paris’s initiative… Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has rejected the plan and called for direct negotiations… ‘Direct negotiations with Netanyahu in the past have proven to be fruitless. Why should we repeat the same mistakes?’ Jamal Dajani, director of communications for Hamdallah, said on Monday… He made the remarks after Netanyahu rejected the French initiative, telling Valls that direct negotiations were the sole option.”

“Pre-Crime” Arrives In Chicago – Big Data Tells Cops Who’s Next To Be Shot – by Tyler Durden, ZeroHedge.com – “The Chicago PD is using an algorithm in order to generate a list of people from police databases in order to figure out who to “target.” Each individual on the list is provided a score based on arrests, shootings, affiliations with gangs, and other variables. The intent of the list is to predict who is next to be shot, or shoot someone, and once the list is updated, authorities then go visit individuals with the highest scores at their home. The individuals are then told that they’re on the list, and that they are being monitored the NYT reports… In this city’s urgent push to rein in gun and gang violence, the Police Department is keeping a list. Derived from a computer algorithm that assigns scores based on arrests, shootings, affiliations with gang members and other variables, the list aims to predict who is most likely to be shot soon or to shoot someone… ‘We are targeting the correct individuals,’ Mr. Johnson said. ‘We just need our judicial partners and our state legislators to hold these people accountable.’.. Miles Wernick, a professor at the Illinois Institute of Technology, created the algorithm… Dr. Wernick says the model intentionally avoids using variables that could discriminate in some way, like race, gender, ethnicity and geography.(emph. added)

Leaked Tapes Expose Coup Plot Against Brazil’s Dilma Rousseff – from SputnikNews.com – “On Monday, Brazilian newspaper Folha de Sao Paulo revealed a recording of a conversation between the country’s planning minister Romero Juca and Sergio Machado, former CEO of state-owned oil company Petrobras subsidiary Transperto, calling for a carefully orchestrated and arguably-legal coup against Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff… The conversation centered on “changing” the government to “stop the bleeding” revealed by the so-called Car Wash investigation into Petrobras’ corrupt practices. Both men are being actively investigated for corruption under the probe, and Juca resigned from his position on Monday… The leaked conversations feature Juca contemplating a possible Michel Temer government, with a condition that the ongoing probe be dissolved. This conversation took place just weeks before Rousseff was suspended from her post amid impeachment proceedings.”

Vaccinations: Deadly Immunity. Government Cover-up of a Mercury / Autism Scandal – “Government health agencies colluded with Big Pharma to hide the risks” – by Robert F. Kennedy Jr., GlobalResearch.ca – “In June 2000, a group of top government scientists and health officials gathered for a meeting at the isolated Simpsonwood conference center in Norcross, Georgia. Convened by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the meeting was held at this Methodist retreat center, nestled in wooded farmland next to the Chattahoochee River, to ensure complete secrecy. The agency had issued no public announcement of the session — only private invitations to fifty-two attendees. There were high-level officials from the CDC and the Food and Drug Administration, the top vaccine specialist from the World Health Organization in Geneva and representatives of every major vaccine manufacturer, including GlaxoSmithKline, Merck, Wyeth and Aventis Pasteur. All of the scientific data under discussion, CDC officials repeatedly reminded the participants, was strictly “embargoed.” There would be no making photocopies of documents, no taking papers with them when they left.”

GMO_CottonMonsanto’s Cotton Rejected Again: Burkina Faso Brings Back Indigenous Varieties – by Christina Sarich, NaturalBlaze.com – “Monsanto has been trying to take over Africa’s cotton for decades with their patented, genetically modified (GM) seed. Not without irony, Burkina Faso is just one of the African countries that has been wary of any of Monsanto’s GM seed, adding to the credo, ‘better off dead, than GM fed,’ when it came to accepting U.S. food aid that was primarily genetically altered. Africa’s biggest cotton grower in Burkina Faso is now phasing out Monsanto’s GM cotton and returning to indigenous varieties by 2018, due to concerns of cross-contamination of local crops and the less-than-stellar performance of Monsanto’s Bt variety… This move by a West African country is noteworthy because Africa has been the unnamed poster child for promoting genetically modified crops as a means to end hunger and stop poverty by biotech interests. Investors like Bill Gates have donated millions to try to help GM crops catch on throughout the continent, stating that genetically modified crops could ‘end world hunger by 2030.’..Strangely, not a single GM crop has proven to do such a thing — with failing yields, superweeds, cross-contamination of indigenous crop varieties, and a host of health problems associated with GM seed, which was created to help sell herbicides.”

Covering Up Climate Engineering Contamination, “EPA Caught Buying It’s Independent Science Advisors” – by Dane Wigington, GeoEngineeringWatch.org – “A lawsuit has been filed to expose the EPA for awarding $190 million in taxpayer grants to “independent” scientists in order to get the air quality test and research results desired by the EPA. This being said, please consider and remember this next statement very carefully, THERE IS A MUCH MORE CRITICAL CRIME OF CONCEALMENT contained in this EPA scenario than what the authors of the report (or the legal action) alleges. The report in question is from a source that is nothing more than a lobbyist/representative for the fossil fuel industry (EELI, The Energy Environmental Legal Institute). The attorney for EELI is Steve Milloy who is a textbook example of a self-serving and completely honorless fossil fuel industry lobbyist. While Milloy is trying to expose the EPA for their fraud because of the financial damage the EPA has inflicted on the planet plundering fossil fuel industry who pays him, in reality the EPA’s paid off scientists are hiding a crime of immensely greater gravity, the highly toxic fallout from the ongoing global climate engineering/weather warfare assault.”

Anonymous-You_Have_Been_HackedAnonymous Hits New York Stock Exchange, World Bank, The Fed, and Vatican — Total Media Blackout – by Jay Syrmopoulos, ActivistPost.com – “The initial attacks were reported in global corporate media, such as Reuters, with subsequent strikes being reported by independent outlets such as the IBTimes and HackRead. The most recent press release from Anonymous summarized some of the attacks of the past week, as global media has curiously stopped reporting on the attacks altogether… After announcing OpIcarus at the beginning of May, Anonymous released a list of institutions the collective plans to target, which is divided into four sections; websites associated with the U.S. Federal Reserve, the International Monetary Fund (IMF), sites owned by the World Bank, and over 150 sites associated with national banks around the globe… In just a few weeks, OpIcarus hackers have hit dozens of financial institutions listed in their online manifesto. Any questions about whether the hacktivists would be able to take out some of the more high-profile institutions seem to have been answered with the recent successful attacks on the World Bank, the U.S. Federal Reserve Banks, the Bank of France and the Bank of England — the central banks of the U.K. and France – and the Vatican.”

If not, Israeli forces demolish the structures at the financial expense of the owners of the property… It remains unclear what legal pretext Israeli authorities used to issue the demolition orders… Israel has come under international condemnation over repeated demolitions of EU-funded structures, with some accusing the Israeli government of demolishing Palestinian structures in retaliation for the EU’s decision in November to enforce labeling laws that would indicate if a product was produced in one of Israel’s 196 illegal settlements… Since the start of 2016, Israeli forces have demolished 586 Palestinian-owned structures, leaving 800 Palestinians homeless in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, according to OCHA… According to the Israeli Committee Against Housing Demolitions, Israeli forces have demolished over 48,000 Palestinian homes and structures since the start of the occupation of the West Bank and East Jerusalem in 1967.”

Aleppo-Heavy_FightingBattle for Aleppo – the End of Erdogan’s Ottoman Dream in Syria – by atherine Shakdam, Journal-NEO.org – “Forget Damascus and forget President Bashar al-Assad’s seat of power – the real battle for Syria is being played out in the northern city of Aleppo, where Turkey dared dream it would revive its empire of old. Ankara here, is in for a rude awakening!.. So rude in fact that Turkish President Recep Erdogan is contemplating a military incursion into Syria – a move fraught with dangers, as it could potentially send Turkey in a collision course with not just Damascus, but two military superpowers; Iran and Russia. Needless to say that while both Moscow and Tehran have exercised restraint and measure when dealing with Ankara’s political folly, for the sake of regional stability; a direct military move against Syria would likely send ripples across the region that no amount of diplomacy will quiet… Turkey of course argues that its position is legitimate and true … how could it not, when Turkey has proven such a true NATO ally, such a bulwark against terror? President Erdogan’s main line of defense – or rather, attack is that he needs to absolutely protect Turkey’s national sovereignty against dangerous radical militants. Turkey’s right to self-defence is so imperious in fact that its expression justifies its trampling over the territorial integrity of another sovereign nation: Syria.”

Over 100 killed as blasts hit near Russian military bases in Syria’s Latakia province (VIDEO) – from RT.com – “Sham FM radio claims that the first explosion in Jableh occurred at the entrance to the town, where a car with an estimated equivalent of 250 kg of TNT inside blew up… Three more blasts were reported in a residential area of another coastal town, Tartus, eyewitnesses told RIA Novosti… At least 20 were killed there, SANA and RIA Novosti said citing police sources… According to Syrian state TV, one of the Tartus explosions was a car bomb, while another was caused by a suicide bomber… Both towns targeted by Monday attacks are close to facilities used by the Russian task force in Syria… The Martyr Basil al-Assad International Airport, next to Jableh, has hosted Russia’s Khmeimim airbase and reconciliation center since September 2015… The port of Tartus has been used for years by the Russian Navy as a feeder base. The port has been extensively used for delivering military supplies to the Russian contingent in the country… An eye-witness of the blast in Tartus told RT that the bus station that was targeted was destroyed… ‘Most of the bus-station is down, completely destroyed. It’s very new to this city, it’s never happened before. People are angry, and sad.’ “

Mom Faces Down SWAT Team and MRAP for Refusing to Give Daughter Deadly Antipsychotic Drug – by Matt Agorist, TheDailySheeple.com – “When social services found out that Maryanne had taken her daughter off the drug, they took legal and physical action to force her hand. On March 24, 2011, social services, accompanied by the Detroit Police SWAT team and an illegal order, forcibly entered Maryanne’s home to remove Ariana, citing Maryanne’s refusal to give her Risperdal… It took Maryanne several days to locate her daughter and find out where she’d been taken. When they finally found her, Ariana was so doped up on Risperdal that she was drooling and despondent… Days later, Maryanne was arrested and charged with 8 felony counts for trying to protect her daughter from being kidnapped.”

“Soft” Coups Threaten Brazil, Venezuela and South Africa – by Hugo Turner, GlobalResearch.ca – “The Empire of Chaos(The US) has won a major victory in Brazil destroying a democracy in order to bring Brazil back under control. Dilma Rousseff has been impeached on trumped up charges ignoring the wishes of the 54 Million Brazilians who voted for her and replacing her with the traitor Michel Temer… Temer gives a whole new meaning to the idea of rule by the 1% because Temer has a 1% approval rating. Rousseff has been suspended from office for 180 days while the impeachment process continues. Brazil has joined the list of successful recent coups in Honduras, and Paraguay. Like the people of Argentina the people of Brazil are about to be reminded of what it means to be ruled by neo-liberal Hyenas… For the people of Brazil the battle has only begun.”

CDC forced to release documents showing they knew vaccine preservative causes autism – “PhD Scientist and Biochemist reveals Hidden CDC documents showing Thimerosal In Vaccines increase Neurologic problems… The CDC has been shunning the correlations among thimerosal and neurological disorders for a totally long term. Despite the fact that the FDA gave a two year deadline to get rid of the mercury based preservative from vaccines after the neurotoxin was banned in 1999, it nonetheless remains to at the present time in 60 percentage of flu vaccines. A vaccine industry watchdog has now received CDC documents that display statistically tremendous dangers of autism associated with the vaccine preservative, something the CDC denies even if confronted with their very own information… For nearly ten years, Brian Hooker has been soliciting for documents which might be kept under tight wraps through the facilities for disorder manipulate and Prevention (CDC). His greater than a hundred Freedom of records Act (FOIA) requests have led to copious evidence that the vaccine preservative Thimerosal, which continues to be used inside the flu shot this is administered to pregnant ladies and toddlers, can purpose autism and different neurodevelopmental disorders.”

Tiny Homes for the Homeless Now Under Attack in California – by Isaac Davis, WakingTimes.com – “Personal liberty is under attack in so many areas of American society, and combined with a faltering economy, people are in greater need than ever of finding ways to survive economically while still maintaining basic freedoms… The tiny house movement is one of the many creative ways in which people are out-smarting the matrix of consumerism and debt. Recently, however, we reported on the federal government’s attempts through the Department of Housing and Urban Development to make owning and living in a tiny home more difficult for those who wish to do so… READ: US Government Declaring All Out War on Tiny House Living… It seems this is an important issue for many, and even the infamous website Snopes, in it’s typical mainstream, ‘nothing to see here folks,’ fashion, has chimed in on this debate claiming that concern over the HUD’s updated regulations are simply false, citing various interpretations of the new HUD regulatory changes to make their case.”

Pope Francis Likens Jesus to ISIS, Says Muslims Must Breed With Europeans – by Kit Daniels, PrisonPlanet.com – ” ‘Today, I don’t think that there is a fear of Islam as such but of ISIS and its war of conquest, which is partly drawn from Islam,” he told French newspaper La Croix. ‘It is true that the idea of conquest is inherent in the soul of Islam, however, it is also possible to interpret the objective in Matthew’s Gospel, where Jesus sends his disciples to all nations, in terms of the same idea of conquest.’.. The Pope also said he “dreaded” hearing about the “Christian roots of Europe” because, to him, they take on “colonialist overtones” and he called on European nations to “integrate” Muslim migrants into the continent… ‘This integration is all the more necessary today since, as a result of a selfish search for well-being, Europe is experiencing the grave problem of a declining birth rate,’ he stated. ‘A demographic emptiness is developing.’.. His opinions are stunningly similar to those of top Iman Sheikh Muhammad Ayed, who said Muslims should exploit the migrant crisis to breed with Europeans and “conquer their countries.”.. ‘Europe has become old and decrepit and needs human reinforcement… they are not motivated by compassion for the Levant, its people and its refugees… soon, we will trample them underfoot, Allah willing,’ he stated.”

Conflict of interest? Members of UN panel on glyphosate have Monsanto ties – from RT.com – ” Two people on the UN panel that just ruled the herbicide glyphosate “unlikely” to cause cancer in humans have ties to groups that have accepted over $1 million from Monsanto and another industry group representing agrochemical giants… The people in question are Professor Alan Boobis, chairman of the UN panel investigating glyphosate – the active ingredient in Monsanto’s herbicide Roundup and other similar products – and Professor Angelo Moretto, the panel’s co-chair, the Guardian reported… Boobis is the vice president of the International Life Science Institute (ILSI Europe). Moretto, meanwhile, is a board member of ILSI’s Health and Environmental Sciences Institute and of its Risk21 steering group. Notably, Boobis is a co-chair of Risk21… ILSI Europe accepted a donation of $500,000 from Monsanto back in 2012, according to a document released by the US Right to Know campaign. The group also accepted donations from CropLife – which represents agriculture companies such as Monsanto, Dow, DuPont and Syngenta – totaling more than $528,000… On Tuesday, the UN panel tasked with ruling on glyphosate – a joint effort between the Food and Agriculture Organization and the World Health Organization – said the herbicide is not likely to cause cancer in humans.”

Cobra_HelicopterMissile Attack on Helicopter Rocks Turkish Army – from VOANews.com – “But retired Turkish brigadier Haldun Solmazturk said such an attack would have far reaching consequences… ‘It is extremely significant from a military perspective,’ he said. ‘This fact would change tactics of the overall approach, the balance of power between PKK and Turkish army, and it would have an effect on the morale of the Turkish soldiers.’.. Adding to Turkish military concerns is the apparent failure of the helicopter’s defense system, said analyst Metehan Demir, a former Turkish military pilot… ‘The downed helicopter was not alone during the operation,’ Demir said. ‘There was another helicopter just behind the helicopter, and this helicopter was not warned by the defense system that the missile was coming. This is also very strange, which means it looks like the system was very new used by the PKK, and there could be more similar missiles in the hands of the PKK.’.. Analysts said the missile used in the attack appeared to be Russian-made, but it remained unclear how the PKK obtained it and how many the group has.”

Transhumanism, Freemasonry and the Internet as God – by David Livingstone. Omnithought.org – “It could be said that transhumanism is Freemasonry for the technological age. But Freemasonry forged the technological age. In effect, the history of modern times is the efforts of an occult underground led by Freemasons and other occult secret societies, who represented their agenda as “science” pitted against “religion.” Freemasonry is founded on the belief that magic empowers man to become “like a god.” Their goal is to harness the powers of nature, both known (real science) and hidden (occult)… This agenda begins with the founders of Rosicrucianism, the sorcerer John Dee and Francis Bacon, who is credited with introducing the scientific method which opened the way for the Scientific Revolution. Most of the leading scientists of Western history have been secretly adherents of the occult, including Isaac Newton, who was a member of the Royal Society, and Benjamin Franklin, a Freemason and member of the Hellfire Club… This vision of the transformative power of science has been married to the Kabbalistic idea of progress, which is deemed to provide the basis for man’s evolution towards becoming a more “perfect” being.”

Big Festival Brother? What summer music festivals are doing with your personal data – By Gianluca Mezzofiore, Mashable.com – “Last year, Leicestershire police scanned the faces of 90,000 festival-goers at Download Festival, checking them against a list of wanted criminals across the country. It was the first time anywhere in the UK that facial recognition technology — NeoFace — was used at a public outdoor event… Privacy campaigners — and Muse frontman Matt Bellamy — expressed their fury at authorities after they casually mentioned the use of the surveillance project on Police Oracle, a police news and information website. Police didn’t use any other method to warn festival-goers about the controversial initiative… It’s not yet clear whether UK authorities will use facial technology at music festivals this year… Leicestershire Police told Mashable: ‘There are no plans to use live time facial recognition technologies during music festivals or other events in the next few months.’.. But they added that NeoFace will continue to be used by the force to identify suspects.”

The Cell (2000) – Sex Slaves and the Split Psyche – by Jay Dyer, 21stCenturyWire.com – “My consideration is that perhaps as a result of the Fall, all of us are in some degree fragmented, while MPD/DID demonstrate more severe versions of the universal fragmentation. This is not to propose some new agey, generic dissolution of individual, on the contrary, the individual psyche needs to be unified, coherent and integrated. Psychology’s approach has been to attempt to integrate these various personae, and this makes sense, yet still lacks the possibility of considering man as a spiritual being with a nous. If God exists, then the faculty that exists for unification and integration through the knowledge of God cannot be ignored.” – Very interesting reflection and analysis

Rhodes-Sasse‘Dangerous White House propaganda’: Obama team & GOP battle over Iran media spin – from RT.com – “Meanwhile, for the mainstream media’s part, they appeared to use a two-pronged approach of defense and attack… A number of news outlets got their back up about claims that they were duped by the White House, some repeatedly doing so, while others took aim at Samuels himself, including previous employers… The journalist was criticized for not being truthful about his own background and adding his own “self-serving spin,” according to Media Matters… Writing for Slate in 2009, Samuels detailed his “rational argument” for why Israel should bomb Iran, saying that it “makes sense.”.. He also participated in a panel at the Hudson Institute in 2015 which criticized the Iran deal, saying that he was ‘startled by the lack of attention and clarity’ in what had been reported… Samuels was backed up by the New York Times editor though, saying they ‘stand behind the piece 100 percent.’.. While those entrenched in the Washington DC’s media circles and halls of power continue to spar over what is and isn’t propaganda, the general public is already one step ahead.”

For the week of 5/9/16:

Yair_GolanOn IDF Brutality and the Meaning of the Holocaust – by Gilad Atzmon, Gilad.co.uk – “In a speech last week, Major General Yair Golan, the Israeli military’s deputy chief of staff, said the Holocaust should prompt Israelis to reflect”deeply” about their own society… ‘If there is anything that frightens me in the remembrance of the Holocaust, it is discerning nauseating processes that took place in Europe in general, and in Germany specifically back then, 70, 80 and 90 years ago, and seeing evidence of them here among us in the year 2016,’ said the Israeli military leader… Some Israeli right wing politicians didn’t like Major General Golan’s statement. PM Benjamin Netanyahu denounced him yesterday. Education Minister Naftali Bennett, called on Golan to correct his comments or be seen as “comparing Israeli soldiers to Nazis.” Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked, said Golan was “a little confused” and that his statement reflected ‘a lack of understanding, if not a disrespect of the Holocaust.’ “

“Soft” Coups Threaten Brazil, Venezuela and South Africa – by Hugo Turner, GlobalResearch.ca – “Yet the loss of Brazil has even worse consequences for the globe. It is a major strategic victory in the empire of Chaos attempt to reconquer Latin America. It is also a major victory in the effort to destroy the BRICS countries. It marks a major defeat in the effort to build a multi-polar world. Worse still Soft coups are also making gains in Venezuela and in South Africa. In Venezuela a recall referendum obtained the necessary signatures to remove Nicolas Maduro from office. In South Africa a court ruled that Jacob Zuma must again face hundreds of charges that were dismissed years ago. Both Venezuela and South Africa have been the victims of a covert war campaign. In Venezuela a wave of assassinations continues to murder those loyal to the Bolivarian Revolution. In South Africa a wave of arson attacks have been carried out that the government has blamed on the US embassy (ie the CIA). As if plunging large parts of the globe into unending warfare is not enough the empire of chaos is determined to destroy every independent country on the planet.”

Local Government Approves ‘Covert’ Spying On Citizen ‘Mischief’ Via Fake Facebook Profiles – by Liam Deacon, Breitbart.com – ” ‘In some circumstances’ spying is also permitted ‘through the officer’s private or departmental identity’, as well as ‘through a covert identity using a false name’… ‘To investigate a service user whose Facebook account is protected by privacy settings, the investigating officer will have to send the service user a “friend request” ‘, the document advises.In a statement handed to The Register, the council insisted they would only spy on local people ‘for the prevention and detection of crime or disorder, for public health or for public safety’, or however those parameters are interpreted.”

America’s Outrageous Ultimatum: Syria as the Libya of the Levant – by Tony Cartalucci, Journal-NEO.org – “How the United States presumes to possess the authority to determine the fate of a sovereign nation thousands of miles from its own shores in the Middle East is never explained by US Secretary of State John Kerry when he recently announced a new ultimatum leveled at Damascus. Nor is it explained why Syria should capitulate to US demands to begin a political transition that has demonstrably left other nations across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) divided, destroyed, and safe-havens for state-sponsored terrorism years after “successful” US-backed regime change has been achieved – Libya most notably… Yet despite all of this, according to the Associate Press (AP) in their article, “Kerry warns Assad to start transition by Aug. 1 or else,” the United States fully expects Damascus to concede to a “political transition” engineered by Washington, leaving the nation in the hands of verified terrorists linked directly to the political and militant forces currently laying waste to Libya and those nations that put them into power.

Who is Israel’s Biggest Enemy? – by Tony Cartalucci, ActivistPost.com – “The regime in Jerusalem is often depicted by detractors as representing the Israeli people, and being the “black capital” of a global “Zionist empire.” In reality, the current Israeli government’s existence and the military might that sustains it is owed entirely to Washington and London politically and to a significant degree, financially as well. During the 2006 war against Lebanon, at one point, Israel required an emergency delivery of munitions from the US via the UK to carry on operations… The diminutive country boasts a high-tech economy that could give its people a comfortable existence, benefiting themselves and their neighbors should peace ever be allowed to prevail, but Israel’s economy alone could hardly sustain its current belligerent posture both in the Middle East and beyond without its foreign patrons’ help.”

Ontario Proposes Forced Reeducation For Parents Who Choose To Not Vaccinate Their Children – by Joe Wright, ActivistPost.com – “To be sure, the central theme that will be hammered home is “shared responsibility” and “the greater good” which permits measures that are otherwise completely antithetical to all notions of individual liberty and natural rights. And here is where we begin to see more clearly when mere suggestions can become dangerous non-compliance if not accepted at face value by the public… On the back of the overarching Immunization 2020 initiative is a new bill called “The Immunization of School Pupils Act” proposed on Thursday May 12th, 2016 which directly targets the remaining vaccine exemptions and will force an “education session” for parents who still insist on medical liberty. This of course presumes that parents who have chosen to opt-out haven’t already undertaken their own self-education, which is the case more often than not, making this demand more accurately titled a “reeducation session.”.. The other language throughout this proposal leans toward the draconian, though still discusses a mission of “informed choice.” It is posted here in its entirety with my emphasis added.”

Massive vaccine protests erupt in China over widespread deaths of children … Govt. responds by arresting protesters – by Amy Goodrich, NaturalNews.com – “Recently, a massive vaccine scandal in China exposed the weakness of government efforts to build up China’s immunization program. It uncovered the system’s flaws regarding the way in which vaccines are distributed, and revealed close links between vendors and government clinics… Chinese parents have lost all confidence in the government and government clinics, and are demanding answers… Massive protest: People across the country have gathered and joined forces in a nationwide protest over the vaccine scam. Dozens of Chinese parents have filed a lawsuit demanding justice for the children who have been harmed by these tainted, improperly stored vaccines, amid reports of child and infant deaths and illnesses following such immunizations… As many as 2,000 people gathered outside the Health and Family Planning Commission in Beijing, among them many parents whose children have been affected… The authorities took large numbers of people participating in the protests or lawsuits to an out-of-town unofficial detention center, and some were put under 24-hour surveillance at their homes… ‘I had planned to take part [in the Beijing protests and lawsuits], but I was forcibly escorted home by officials from my hometown on April 13,’ parent activist Wang Liangqing said. ‘Now they are watching us 24 hours a day, so we weren’t able to go.’ Wang called on the government to take the victims of tainted vaccines seriously.”

‘Unacceptable’ that families ‘not told of resuscitation plans’ – Medical staff have placed “do not resuscitate” orders on thousands of patients in England without telling their families, an audit suggests – from BBC.com – “One in five families was not consulted where doctors had decided not to revive their relative, a sample study by The Royal College of Physicians found… Hospitals must “do better”, and it was “unforgivable” not to tell families, report author Prof Sam Ahmedzai said… NHS England said end-of-life care had improved, but more could be done… A “do not resuscitate” (DNR) order means medical staff will not attempt to bring the patient back to life if they stop breathing or their heart stops… The decision to use one is ultimately a doctor’s, but guidelines state medical staff have a duty to discuss it with relatives wherever possible.”

SHOCK STUDY: Ten percent of Canadian females receiving HPV vaccines are sent to Emergency Rooms… scientists declare rate to be ‘low’ for vaccines – by Mike Adams, NaturalNews.com – “A shocking new science study funded by the Alberta Ministry of Health and published in the VACCINE science journal has found that nearly 10 percent of Canadian females end up in emergency rooms (the “Emergency Department” in Canadian vernacular) following HPV vaccine injections… The study is entitled Adverse events following HPV vaccination, Alberta 2006-2014 and is also found at this source… Even more shockingly, vaccine researchers funded by the Alberta Ministry of Health declare this 10% emergency room visitation rate to be “low” and ‘consistent with those seen elsewhere [with vaccines].’ “

US activating missiles in Europe despite Russia warning – from PressTV.ir – “Almost after a decade of pledging to protect members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), Washington will on Thursday activate a web of missile systems it has deployed across Europe over the years… American and NATO officials are slated to declare operational the so-called shield at a remote air base in Deveselu, Romania… ‘We now have the capability to protect NATO in Europe,’ said Robert Bell, a NATO-based envoy of US Defense Secretary Ashton Carter… He claimed that the shield is supposed to protect Europe from an Iranian missile threat, a claim Moscow has repeatedly rejected, saying the missiles are aimed at Russia instead… Russia does not look favorably upon the North Atlantic Organization Treaty (NATO)’s growing deployment of missiles and nuclear weapons near its borders, with the Russian President Vladimir Putin saying in June last year that if threatened by NATO, Moscow will respond to the threat accordingly.”

‘Project Fear’ to Keep UK in EU Set to Backfire as Brexit Support Grows – from SputnikNews.com – “On Tuesday (May 10), two London newspapers, The Times and The Telegraph published letters by 13 former US secretaries of state and defense and national security advisers who said that Britain’s “place and influence in the world would be diminished and Europe would be dangerously weakened,” if Britain left the EU, whilst former NATO chiefs said Brexit would be “very troubling”… In late April, Obama used what is likely to be his final visit to the UK to warn that Britain would go to “the back of the queue” in any future US-UK trade talks if Britain voted to leave the EU following an In-Out referendum on June 23. The fact that he used the word “queue” instead of the more usual US American “line” was swept on by critics who said it smacked of having been scripted by Downing Street… YouGov research reveals that most British people did not welcome Obama’s contribution to the debate, however. The majority (53%) say it was inappropriate for the President to express a preference on how Britain should vote.”

Global Warming Scare: A Genealogy of Climate of Fear – by Branko Malić, 21stCenturyWire.com – “Global warming was for a long time just one of exotic dishes on the doomsday menu, originally outlined in the Club of Rome foundational document Predicament of Mankind from 1970. For twenty-eight years it’s been the first among equals, together with “resources scarcity”, “ecological (dis)balance”, “overpopulation”, “pollution” and, believe it or not, a 21st century addition named “global terrorism” – judging from mainstream media focus in the years following 9/11, a rather hip addition poised to take the lead in the years to follow… Now, however, global warming seems to be on it’s way out as the passage of time has a rather eroding effect on all bodies, including the bodies of lies. But, not to worry, there’s more where that came from. The quest for “enemy image” to unite mankind is not over and it is closely tied to quest of ever branching modern sciences to find the common ground of unified knowledge. In this respect imminent collapse of climate scare bears devastating implications for science in general… The M.I.T. based meteorologist Richard Lindzen‘s question: “Is climate science currently designed to answer questions?” will in the future slowly but surely goad more and more people to reformulate it into: “Is any modern science currently designed to answer questions?”.. The answer could very well be a firm: no.”

Ten years later, Al Gore’s ‘Inconvenient Truth’ propaganda film turns out to be total bunk… How is his profit from carbon taxes not criminal FRAUD? – by Daniel Barker, NaturalNews.com – “Ten years after the release of Al Gore’s Inconvenient Truth, none of the film’s dire climate change predictions have come to pass. However, in the decade since the documentary was produced, its creator has raked in millions of dollars from the entire “global warming” scam, and is now poised to become “our first carbon billionaire.”.. In the 2006 film, Gore made a number of wild claims regarding what we could expect to see happening over the next few years due to global warming, but virtually all of his alarmist prognostications have turned out to be false.”

Who Will Control Access to Internet News? – Internet Giants Are Jockeying to Control What News You Get to See – by Russ Baker, WhoWhatWhy.org – “Google has entered the fray to do battle with Facebook and others as the place where online content lives… If these efforts are successful, people will increasingly stop visiting websites as we know them. They will get all their news from Google, Facebook, Apple, Twitter, and a few other large providers. We will see the gradual diminution of brands until online journalism is purely about which story grabs us… If you think that’s a good thing, think again: WhoWhatWhy has already exposed how Google can actually sway an election. As we warned you before: ‘A peer-reviewed study conducted by the American Institute for Behavioral Research and Technology found that the order of Google search results about candidates — ranked according to positive and negative stories — had a significant effect on which candidates voters chose to cast their ballots for.’.. Keep that in mind as you read this article.”

New Jersey Politicians on the Verge of Voting to Suppress Residents Who Support Palestinians’ Human Rights – New Jersey seems ready to join a growing number of states have voted to punish companies that support the BDS movement – by Leslie Scott, Alternet.org – “In March, New Jersey Senator Cory Booker, a self-proclaimed “activist for social justice,” declared on a right-wing talk show that the BDS (boycott, divestment and sanctions) movement to pressure Israel into respecting Palestinian human rights is “anti-Jewish” and is contributing to a rise in antisemitism. When Booker’s office was contacted to clarify why he would be so dismissive of the oppression of the Palestinians, a spokesperson refused to offer comment… Also this March, Israeli intelligence and government officials gathered in Jerusalem to plan an all-out political offensive on the BDS movement. At the conference, Transportation Minister Yaakov Katz called for “civil targeted eliminations,” or smear campaigns, against people leading the push for Palestinian human rights. His words reverberated across pro-Israel circles in the U.S., where attacks on Palestine solidarity activists are at a fever pitch.” (emph. added)

Two more MMR vaccine whistleblowers: they’re suing – by Jon Rappoport, JonRappoport.wordpress.com – “But there is more. There are other whistleblowers shining a light on the MMR (mumps, measles, rubella) vaccine. Specifically, the mumps component of the vaccine and its ineffectiveness… Their names are Stephen A. Krahling and Joan A. Wlochowski. They’re former virologists at Merck. They’re insiders. They’ve leveled devastating charges against the company, which manufactures the MMR vaccine and sells it to the federal government… In 2010, the whistleblowers filed a suit against Merck. The suit drags on in court (“UNITED STATES OF AMERICA et al. v. MERCK & CO.,” Case No. 2:10-cv-04374-CDJ)… The Huffington Post reports on the charges in the suit (“Merck Has Some Explaining To Do Over Its MMR Vaccine Claims,” 9/24/2014, updated: 11/27/2014): ‘…former Merck scientists [claim] that Merck ‘fraudulently misled the government and omitted, concealed, and adulterated material information regarding the efficacy of its mumps vaccine in violation of the FCA [False Claims Act].’ ”

End of ISIS? Terror group declares emergency in self-declared capital Raqqa in Syria – by Ian Greenhalgh, VeteransToday,com – Dreaded terror group Islamic State appears to be on the verge of being defeated in the key stronghold of Syria. The militant outfit has declared a state of emergency in their self-declared capital Raqqa in Syria… According to a senior US official involved in anti-ISIS operations, ISIS is moving personnel around the city and trying to put up covers in certain areas to shield potential targets from airstrikes and ground attacks… ‘We have seen this declaration of emergency in Raqqa, whatever that means. We know this enemy feels threatened, as they should,’ Steve Warren, the spokesman for the US-led anti-ISIS coalition, said on Friday… ‘They see the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), along with the Syrian Arab Coalition, manoeuvre both to their east and to their west,’ Warren said… ‘Both of these areas becoming increasingly secure, and the SDF increasingly able to generate their own combat power in those areas.’.. SDF spokesman Tajir Kobani announced earlier this week that commanders of the SDF-affiliated groups in Northern Syria had coordinated plans for a joint final operation for liberating Raqqa from the ISIS.”

Syria: Islamists launch drive to recapture Palmyraby Ian Greenhalgh, VeteransToday.com – ISIS militants have been able to cut the road between Homs and Palmyra and disrupt supply routes used by the government forces, the London-based organization Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported. (Note: purveyor of Nato/Zionist propaganda)… ‘Violent clashes between regime forces and Daesh [the Arabic name for ISIS – Kommersant] are ongoing,” said the organization’s director Rami Abdel Rahman, describing the fighting on the distant approaches to Palmyra as ‘part of ISIS’s biggest assault since the army recaptured Palmyra with Russian support.’.. However, according to Kommersant’s source in the Russian General Staff, by mobilizing available resources government troops are managing to control the road between Homs and Palmyra, although fighting is underway to the south of the city (the most recent clash took place near a military air base, 45 miles from Palmyra)… ‘Both the road and the city are under our constant surveillance,’ he said. ‘Combat aircraft get involved in the protection of strategic sites as necessary, our specialists are working there.’.. “The Islamists have stepped up their attacks indeed and are still far from final defeat,” Grigory Kosach, a professor of the Department of History, Political Science and Law at the Russian State University for the Humanities, told Kommersant… ‘At the same time, Russia, which has made Palmyra a symbol of victory and staked too much on it, cannot afford to stop halfway and thus lose face in the Syrian campaign. That means that Russia may be drawn into a new phase of a protracted military campaign in Syria – with unpredictable consequences.’ ”

 

Oleg_PeshkovTurkey urged to prosecute Russian pilot’s murderers – from PressTV.ir – “Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova’s demand on Friday came after Turkish authorities dropped all charges against main suspect in the killing, Alparsalan Celik… Addressing reporters in Moscow, Zakharova called on Turkish authorities to ‘search and hold accountable all involved in the murder of the Russian pilot’ identified as Lieutenant Colonel Oleg Peshkov… Turkish fighter jets shot down a Russian Sukhoi Su-24 bomber on the Syrian border on November 24, 2015, sparking a crisis in their diplomatic ties… The crew of the plane ejected but one of the pilots was killed by Turkish nationalists on the ground as he was parachuting down. The other pilot was rescued by the Syrian army.”

How Israel helps settler groups grab Palestinian land – by Charlotte Silver, ElectronicIntifada.net – “Last November, Muhammad Abu Ta’ah arrived at his property in Sheikh Jarrah in occupied East Jerusalem only to find it had been fenced off by contractors… On the three-dunum plot of land, construction had begun on a four-story, 70-office building that would make up the new headquarters for the private settler group Amana… The property had once been part of an expansive 4,000 dunums (nearly 1,000 acres) of land which Israel expropriated in 1968, one year after its military occupied East Jerusalem. On that land, the state built the French Hill and Ramat Eshkol settlements, in addition to a government compound… Much of this land had been owned by the Abu Ta’ah family. Until now, they had retained this last slice of property, located between a Palestinian hospital and a main thoroughfare, rented part of it to a car business and turned the rest into a large parking lot… But now it belongs to Amana, the development arm of the Gush Emunim settlement movement, which has been integral to Israeli colonization of many parts of the occupied West Bank.”

US, EU wink at Israel’s travel ban on BDS co-founder – by Ali Abunimah, ElectronicIntifada.net – “But given opportunities to speak out in defense of human rights, the Obama administration and the EU have decided to give Israel a wink – amounting to tacit support for its crackdown on Barghouti’s freedom of speech and association… ‘The EU Delegation in Israel and the European Union Office for the West Bank and Gaza Strip are closely following the case of Mr. Omar Barghouti, who lives with his family in Acre in Israel,’ the spokesperson for EU foreign affairs and security policy told The Electronic Intifada in an email… ‘The EU recalls regularly that compliance by states with international human rights law, including accountability, is a cornerstone for peace and security in the Middle East.’.. The spokesperson added that in January, EU governments had jointly ‘highlighted the importance of civil society being able to work unhindered both in Israel and the occupied Palestinian territory.’.. At the US State Department briefing on Wednesday, journalists Said Arikat of the newspaper Al-Quds and Matthew Lee of the Associated Press both raised Barghouti’s case… ‘We’ve seen the reports,’ spokesperson Elizabeth Trudeau responded. ‘We would refer you to the Israelis for comments.’.. It seems that when it comes to Palestinians, the US, which has opinions on everything on Earth, outsources its views on human rights to Israel… Pressed to give a view on the direct threats Israeli ministers had made against Barghouti in March, Trudeau responded, ‘I can’t speak to those comments.’ ” – Note: Because my owners say I can’t.

Anti-fluoride activists in New Zealand are routinely silenced by a corrupt government – by Sarah Landers, NaturalNews.com – “A group of activists known as Fluoride Free NZ has been working successfully with town councils to ban fluoride in the water of local communities across New Zealand, as reported by The Daily Sheeple. But because of their success, they have become a threat to the New Zealand government, “because they contradict the lies medical authorities spew about how safe fluorides are.” For this reason, the New Zealand government is now killing off a series of local movements by claiming that decision-making around fluoridation must be made at a “higher level” – removing the power from the local communities, and placing it back in the hands of the corrupt government.”

Israeli Airstrikes over Damascus Confirmed – from en.FarsNews.com – “The Israeli jet hauled through the Southern outskirts of Damascus and targeted strongholds of the Syrian government’s popular allies,” the source said… ‘A commander of the Lebanese Hezbollah Resistance Movement, Mustafah Badreddin, was reportedly killed in attack,’ the sources confirmed… Also in December, a military source from the Syrian Air Defense said that the Israeli Air Force did indeed violate Syrian airspace to strike the 155th Brigade’s Headquarters (also known as the “Missile Base”) for the second time in 2015… According to the military source, the Israeli warplane struck the 155th Brigade’s Headquarters in the Northern Damascus countryside, inflicting very little damage as it hit an abandoned warehouse outside of the base’s main command center.”

VOODOO ECONOMICS: Proof That the Top 0.1% Create Crashes – by Jeff Nielson, RielPolitik.com – “Our markets and economies are marched up and down in “bubbles” and “crashes”, with the duration of these cycles of financial crime now seeming to be fixed at about once every eight years. As the dust settles after each of these eight-year operations, the Fat Cats at the very, very top are found to have gotten much, much wealthier, while almost everyone else ends up significantly poorer… With this pattern of crime now being obvious, and the pattern of “winners” and “losers” being equally obvious, it doesn’t require a rocket scientist to suspect that the Winners have been orchestrating these bubbles and crashes. It is obviously considerably easier to be on the winning side of your (supposed) gambling, when you know in advance what will transpire in the Game… Previous suspicion of guilt has focused upon “the Top-1%”, a small sub-set of the wealthy whose wealth has been soaring higher at a rate never before seen in the history of our societies. However, upon closer scrutiny, it has more recently been determined that even this small sliver of our population is too large a demographic upon which to focus our attention (and criminal prosecutions?)…. U.S. Wealth Inequality – top 0.1% worth as much as the bottom 90%:…”

DHS_MRAPPentagon Allowed to Supply Military Gear to Homeland Security Department for “War on Immigrants” – by Nafeez Ahmed, Truthout.org – “Excessive police brutality in cases like Ferguson and Baltimore put the 1033 program under the spotlight, and led widespread calls for greater accountability over the way domestic police departments are able to access military-grade equipment through the Pentagon scheme. In May 2015, the Obama administration moved to impose more robust oversight processes for the program, one of the consequences of which was a recall order compelling police departments to return equipment that was considered to be excessive… The new provisions were, however, wide enough that military-grade equipment can still be acquired from the Pentagon by law-enforcement agencies if they can justify its necessity. Further amendments to the NDAA later that year expanded these provisions further, but their alarming scope has gone unreported until now… Both police departments and the DHS “are now required to certify annually” to the Pentagon that they have ‘adopted publicly available protocols for the appropriate use of controlled property, the supervision of such use, the evaluation of the effectiveness of such use, including auditing and accountability policies.’.. Military Training for Cops: They must also certify to the Pentagon that they provide ‘annual training to relevant personnel on the maintenance, sustainment, and appropriate use of controlled property.’.. In other words, law-enforcement and DHS personnel provided with Pentagon military-grade equipment must receive annual military-level training “appropriate” to the use of such military hardware.”

Watchdog group protests annual American Psychiatric Convention, objects to recommendation of use of electroshock therapy on children and teens – by Julie Wilson, NaturalNews.com – “Currently, the U.S Food and Drug Administration is deciding whether or not to declassify the risk of electroconvulsive therapy, from a Class III device, the highest risk category, to a Class II, defined as moderately risky. Since 1979, electroshock therapy has been categorized as a Class III device, making it subject to the highest level of regulatory control… Opponents fear that if the FDA decides to declassify the risk level of ECT the treatment could be used much more freely, because the devices would be eligible for “off-label” use. Though the FDA has requested safety data since 1978, no ECT manufacturer has ever provided a Pre-Market Approval or any clinical trials illustrating the treatment’s safety and efficacy… The American Psychiatric Association is the driving force behind the risk level declassification of ECT, as well as the push to use the treatment on children and teenagers unresponsive to current drugs and therapies.”

VAXXED: Furthering The Censorship Connection – Merck, Huff Po, CDC’s Revolving Door – from HealthFreedoms.org – “Six Steps to Huff Po Blackout Heaven: ONE: Recently, long-time blogger/columnist for the Huffington Post, Lance Simmens, wrote an article in which he made positive comments about the film, Vaxxed (trailer)… Simmens didn’t state that the MMR vaccine causes autism. He pointed out that Vaxxed is about a CDC whistleblower who admits to giving the MMR a free pass, who admits that he and his colleagues hid data that would have shown a connection between the vaccine and autism… So Simmens wrote that Vaxxed is an important film, and the issue it raises needs to be investigated… TWO: Huffington Post censored Simmens’ article. His account with Huff Po was blocked without explanation. He was shut out from posting more articles. Finally, someone named Stuart at Huff Po wrote him an absurd and irrelevant “explanation”: ‘Hi Lance, we’re going to have to pass on your latest post because it violates a long-standing policy we have against disseminating conspiracy theories and inaccurate medical information. In the case of your post specifically, it presents as credible a widely known and debunked hoax that vaccines cause autism. Please bear in mind that we reserve the right to remove any content from our site for any reason, and at any time.’ “

Mustafa_BadreddineTop Hezbollah commander killed in Damascus blast – from Reuters.com – “Hezbollah’s top military commander Mustafa Badreddine has been killed in a blast at a base near Damascus airport, the Lebanese Shi’ite group said on Friday, one of the biggest blows to its leadership the Iranian-backed organization has ever sustained… Hezbollah did not immediately say on Friday who it blamed for the attack, but its deputy leader Sheikh Naim Qassem said there were clear indications of who was behind it, and the group would announce the outcome of its investigation within hours. There was no immediate claim of responsibility… At least one Hezbollah figure blamed the group’s age-old enemy Israel, which has struck Hezbollah targets in Syria several times in the past since civil war started there in 2011. Israel declined to comment, but a former Israeli official said his country would be glad Badreddine was dead.”

Syria: US Smoke and Mirrors to Protect Terrorist Proxies in Aleppo – by Vanessa Beeley, 21stCenturyWire.com – “Throughout the two and a half months that have passed since the start of the Cessation of Hostilities (CoH), the State Department has refused to acknowledge that the US backed rebel factions are fighting in Aleppo and elsewhere alongside Jabhat al-Nusra, Al-Qaeda’s branch in Syria… There has not been a single press briefing where the spokesman has not accused Russia and Syria of targeting US backed rebel factions and civilians… Whether it’s John Kirby or Mark Toner, the spokesman keeps talking about intermingling between the “moderates” and the Al-Qaeda affiliate and that the Russians/Syrians need to be able to separate the two. At the the press briefing of April 25, 2016 Mr Kirby said: ‘So again, I go back to what I said before. We want to see the cessation observed by all parties. As I said in my answer to Said, we’re not blind to the fact that it’s a very dynamic situation in Aleppo and that there is intermingling. We’ve said that for a while now…”

Dr_Vibeke_RasmussenAnother Holistic Doctor Murdered – Stabbed More Than 30 Times – from HealthFreedoms.org – “Another holistic doctor has been found murdered in her home, stabbed more than thirty times by somebody that police say had “no motive” to kill her… 76-year-old Dr. Vibeke Rasmussen, a former Quincy College Professor, taught nutrition at college and advised students on how to use nutrition to live a healthy life… Healthnutnews.com reports: ‘She was 76 and “a devoted grandmother, and former foster mother to at least 20 kids,” said her daughter.’ The article states: ‘She stated that her mother, a native of Denmark, who moved to Massachusetts from Indianapolis after her retirement to be close to her, had a great sense of adventure. She always rode her bicycle and once took a summer job driving a bus on Martha’s Vineyard just because it seemed like a fun thing to do.’.. One of her students, Heather Lynch, 25, said she was scheduled to attend Rasmussen’s biology class Saturday morning. She said another student informed her of Rasmussen’s death… ‘She was very much into bringing real life into what we were learning,’ said Lynch, who lives in Plymouth. ‘She was so personable. Going to class wasn’t boring.’.. Rasmussen was interested in nutrition, advising her students to stick to the perimeter of the supermarket when they went grocery shopping, Lynch said. The center aisles, Rasmussen warned, were where stores displayed their most unhealthy products, Lynch said.”

This is What Government Sponsored Mass Surveillance is Doing to Your Mind – by Alex Pietrowski, WakingTimes.com – “Big Brother is watching you and he wants you to believe that if you have nothing to hide, then you have nothing to fear… This is a lie, of course, and as we move deeper into the era of state sponsored technological surveillance, we see more evidence that the loss of privacy and confidence in inter-personal communications is transforming the individual into a compliant, self-policing ward of the state… In one of the first empirical scientific studies to provide concrete evidence of the ‘chilling effects’ that government surveillance has on internet users, Oxford University professor Jon Penney looked at Wikipedia search data and traffic patterns before and after the 2013 revelations by Edward Snowden regarding widespread NSA surveillance of the internet. The results demonstrated an immediate trend towards self-censorship, as traffic and searches for terms like ‘Al Qaeda,’ ‘car bomb,’ and ‘Taliban’ showed nearly instant and mentionable decline… The changes were statistically significant enough to indicate that many people automatically alter their own behavior upon realizing that a punitive authoritarian organization is monitoring them for legitimate or perceived wrongdoings… The changes were statistically significant enough to indicate that many people automatically alter their own behavior upon realizing that a punitive authoritarian organization is monitoring them for legitimate or perceived wrongdoings.”

Four-fold increase in Israeli demolitions in 2016, UN says – from PressTV.ir – “The United Nations says Israel’s demolition campaign against Palestinian homes and structures across the occupied West Bank has brought about a four-fold increase compared to last year, and left a record number of 808 Palestinians displaced since the start of the current year… The world body announced on Thursday that a total of 588 Palestinian structures have been razed since January, adding that the demolitions have affected more than 1,000 people as they have lost structures related to their source of income… The majority of demolitions took place in Area C of the West Bank, which is the largest division in the occupied territory as it comprises 60 percent of the land, and is under full Israeli military control… The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA) said in a statement on April 8 that 124 Palestinians, including 60 children, had been made homeless in a single day as a result of Israeli demolitions in the West Bank.”

Who Owns the Zika Virus? – by Guillaume Kress, GlobalResearch.ca – “This “ATCC-LGC Partnership” is designed to facilitate: ‘…the distribution of ATCC cultures and bioproducts to life science researchers throughout Europe, Africa, and India and […] to make access to the important resources of ATCC more easily accessible to the European, African, and Indian scientific communities through local stock holding of more than 5,000 individual culture items supported by our local office network delivering the highest levels of customer service and technical support.’.. And who owns the patent on the virus? The Rockefeller Foundation!.. Why has the issue of patent ownership of the Zika virus not been the object of media coverage?.. Is the ownership of the Zika Virus by the Rockefeller Foundation part of that agenda of ‘supernational sovereignty [dominated] by an intellectual elite and world bankers…’? Of significance, the Zika virus is a commodity which can be purchased online from the ATCC-LGC for 599 euros, with royalties accruing to the Rockefeller Foundation.”

Turkey begins operation in Syria to establish buffer zone: Report – from PressTV.ir – “Turkey has reportedly launched a military operation on the Syrian side of the border as part of a plan to establish a buffer zone in Syria… According to a Tuesday report by the Turkish Yeni Safak newspaper, the operation allegedly aims to push back the Takfiri Daesh terrorists from an area that is 18 kilometers long and 8 kilometers deep in Syria’s Jarablus region… Under the plan, the Turkish military will use artillery shells, guided missiles and mortars to target the militants who have repeatedly fired rockets at the southern Turkish border town of Kilis… The newspaper said the operation will be supported by the international coalition, particularly the United States and Germany.(emph. added)

11 Signs That The U.S. Economy Is Rapidly Deteriorating Even As The Stock Market Soars – by Michael Snyder, ActivistPost.com – “We have seen this story before, and it never ends well. From mid-March until early May 2008, a vigorous stock market rally convinced many investors that the market turmoil of late 2007 and early 2008 was over and that happy days were ahead for the U.S. economy. But of course we all know what happened. It turned out that the market downturns of late 2007 and early 2008 were just “foreshocks” of a much greater crash in late 2008. The market surge in the spring of 2008 was just a mirage, and it masked rapidly declining economic fundamentals. Well, the exact same thing is happening right now. The Dow rose another 222 points on Tuesday, but meanwhile virtually every number that we are getting is just screaming that the overall U.S. economy is steadily falling apart. So don’t be fooled by a rising stock market. Just like in the spring of 2008, all of the signs are pointing to an avalanche of bad economic news in the months ahead. The following are 11 signs that the U.S. economy is rapidly deteriorating…”

Police Stage Fake Terror Attack on British Shopping Mall (w/Unintentionally Hilarious Video) – by Stuart Hooper, 21stCenturyWire.com – “British Police staged a fake terror attack on a British shopping mall in Manchester today… The ‘authorities’ commandeered the entire mall to stage a fake suicide bombing and attack with small arms… Numerous ‘crisis actors’ were involved, along with many others playing the roles of civilians… With the police staging such an event, do they have some kind of intelligence that the real thing might be happening soon?.. Greater Manchester Police were even forced to apologise after their fake bomber shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’ in a truly stereotypical fashion… Watch the policing raiding the mall, complete with crisis actors, right here…”

Vaccines and pesticides cause chronic illnesses in pets, too – by Julie Wilson, NaturalNews.com – “The most common health problem Dr. Falconer sees in pets is allergies, which he says are caused by “immune confusion,” a man-made disease… ‘When your dog’s immune system responds with a full-on inflammatory response that threatens to turn him into a bloody, itchy pulp, and that response continues into weeks and months and years, you’re seeing immune confusion,’ says Dr. Falconer… ‘When your loved one’s life is threatened by his immune system attacking his own red blood cells or platelets, you’re seeing immune confusion.’.. The immune system shouldn’t be attacking itself or overreacting to normal things, says Dr. Falconer. It should react strongly to a potentially dangerous virus however, but not fleas, foods or plants, he adds… Dr. Falconer blames immune confusion on vaccines. ‘Immune systems are put into a state of confusion by vaccines whose sole purpose is to hype that very system.’ Rather than be effectively immunized against real world viruses, vaccines result in chronic illness…”

New Book: Medical Kidnapping: A Threat to Every Family in America – from HealthImpactNews.com – “If you live in the United States of America today, and you have children in your home under the age of 18, every day you are in danger of losing your children to the State through medical kidnapping. Something as simple as bringing your child to the local emergency room to care for an injury or sickness puts you at risk for being accused of medically abusing or neglecting your child, and having a doctor direct a social worker to remove the child or children from your custody by force… Medical kidnapping is defined as the state taking away children from their parents and putting them into state custody and the foster care system, simply because the parents did not agree with a doctor regarding their prescribed medical treatment for the family. In some cases it is as simple as telling a doctor you are going to seek a second opinion on a suggested medical procedure, and then ending up being charged with “medical abuse” and losing your children… In this book we will introduce you to dozens of families who have had their children medically kidnapped, and we will explain why this is happening to thousands of families all across America today. Every family living in the United States today is in danger, facing medical tyranny and the state-sponsored kidnapping of their children.”

UN Candidate For Secretary-General: Vision For Building A Better World – by Igor Luksic (the Candidate), TechnocracyNews.com – TN Note: Luksic is one of several official candidates for appointment to be Secretary-General of the United Nations later this year. He is a nirvana-minded Technocrat who cannot internalize criticism from other quarters. However, we are very happy that he recognizes that ‘Globalization continues and different forms of resistance are in play.’“The world has been changing. Some say it is in tumult. Globalization continues and different forms of resistance are in play. The international community has been strong in adopting agendas, but not as strong in delivering them. Therefore, I believe we have to ask ourselves, What is it we are doing wrong? Or is this really the first time we are trying to synchronize our global-development efforts, and we need time to work it out? Complex challenges such as contemporary and protracted conflicts, dire humanitarian situations, migration/refugee flows, the spread of international terrorism and violent extremism require an effective, efficient and more relevant UN system. The UN requires strong leadership that will make it fit for said purpose, and to rebuild trust in the Organization. We also need fresh faces within the System to ensure that needed change happens.”

Policy Innovation Magic And Integration Needed For 2030 Agenda And SDG Goal Realization – by Patrick Wood, TechnocracyNews.com – “Integration across sectors and disciplines, and between actors and institutions, is essential to drive forward and successfully implement the United Nations development agenda, the Vice-President of the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) emphasized at the conclusion of a three-day segment on promoting integration of the three pillars of sustainable development… ‘Given the complexity of the new [2030] Agenda [for Sustainable Development], the challenge of integration will not be met without innovative solutions,’ said Sven Jürgenson at the conclusion of the segment at UN Headquarters in New York… Noting that this was the first Integration Segment of ECOSOC to be held since the adoption of the 2030 Agenda, the Vice-President said that the discussions were very timely… ‘As our general debate highlighted, the solution for the challenges of successful integration lies in instilling ownership at all levels of implementation. All stakeholders must be turned into partners in achieving sustainable development,’ the ECOSOC Vice-President said.”

Joint Statement of the Russian Federation and the United States on Syria – from State.gov – “The Russian Federation and the United States of America, as co-chairs of the International Syria Support Group (ISSG), recognize the progress that has been made with respect to the cessation of hostilities (CoH) in Syria, in accordance with our Joint Statement of February 22, 2016, and in improving humanitarian access. We believe our joint efforts have brought about a significant decrease in violence in the areas of North Latakia and East Ghouta. However, we also recognize the difficulties faced by the CoH in several areas of the country, especially in the recent period, as well as remaining problems in ensuring humanitarian access to the besieged areas. As a result, we have decided to reconfirm our commitment to the CoH in Syria and to intensify efforts to ensure its nation-wide implementation. We also intend to enhance efforts to promote humanitarian assistance to all people in need in accordance with United Nations Security Council Resolution 2254.” – And other further equivocation and lies…

Rule of law takes hit in court’s order to commit perjury – ‘No tyrant could hope for a better tool than what is being made judicial precedent’ – by Alex Newman, WND.com – “In a case with major implications for free speech and due process, an appeal by Doreen Hendrickson, a mother jailed last year on “contempt of court” charges for refusing a federal court order to perjure herself, was officially denied… The court claimed that it did not have to rule on the illegality or unconstitutionality of the court order that was supposedly violated, or on whether it was appropriate for the trial court to instruct the jury not to consider the legality of the demands… If the ruling is allowed to stand, observers and legal experts warned of potentially devastating consequences to the rule of law, due process of law, judicial integrity, freedom of speech, and all of Americans’ constitutionally protected rights.”

Obama: TTIP Necessary So As to Protect Megabanks From Prosecution – by Eric Zuesse, RINF.com – “On May 7th, Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten, or German Economic News, headlined, “U.S. Plans Frontal Attack on Europe’s Courts via TTIP,” and reported that, ‘America’s urgency to sign TTIP with Europe has solid reason: Megabanks must protect themselves from claims by European investors who allege that they were cheated during the debt crisis. … The U.S. Ambassador to Italy has now let the cat out of the bag on this — probably unintentionally.’.. In this particular case, the megabank that’s being sued isn’t American but German, Deutsche Bank, which the U.S. Ambassador to Italy has cited as his example to defend, perhaps so as to appeal to Germans to protect their megabanks against lawsuits from foreign investors (such as Italians) who complain. In that case it was investors in the Italian city of Trani, population 53,000. The smallness of the city was an issue the Ambassador raised against the suit’s having been brought there.”

Al-Nusra Front carried out attack on Syria displaced camp: Russia – from PressTV.ir – “Russia’s Defense Ministry has accused the al-Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front terror group of carrying out a recent deadly attack on a camp for internally displaced persons in northwestern Syria… ‘Judging by the damage shown in photographs and video, the camp may have been shelled either on purpose or by mistake by multiple rocket launchers, which are currently being used very actively in this area by terrorists from al-Nusra,’ Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said on Friday… Konashenkov also said that no Russian or other warplanes were flying over the Kamuna camp near the Syrian town of Sarmada in Idlib province at the time of the Thursday attack.”

DOJ Drops Prosecution of Biggest Dispensary of Medical Marijuana In US – from HealthFreedoms.org – “Providing medical marijuana to more than 100,000 patients, Harborside opened in 2006, and the Justice Department first tried to shutter its doors and seize the buildings that house the business in 2012. The city of Oakland sided with Harborside and sued, arguing that closing the dispensary would harm those who rely on its services and force sick people to seek marijuana illegally on the streets… In July of 2012, the office of then-US attorney Melissa Haag filed a civil forfeiture action against Harborside, claiming the business had violated federal drug laws… The civil forfeiture was part of the Obama administration’s overall crackdown on marijuana dispensaries across California. Threats of federal prosecution lead to the closure of more than 500 dispensaries across the state in 2011 and 2012.”

CDC’s Purchase of $4 Billion of Vaccines a Conflict of Interest in Overseeing Vaccine Safety – from VaccineImpact.com – “Do you trust the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to oversee vaccine safety when they have an annual budget of over $4 billion to purchase vaccines from drug companies? In 2015, they want to increase that amount by another half a billion dollars (see chart above)… Dr. Brian Hooker says the CDC should not be trusted to oversee vaccine safety, and after 10 years of fighting legal battles with the CDC via Freedom of Information requests to secure raw data on vaccine safety studies, he now has solid evidence to back up his claim of fraud within the CDC.”

For the week of 4/25/16:

F-35-HemorrhagingJet Designer: The F-35 Would Have Been Defeated Even During World War II – from SputnikNews.com – “As the Senate Armed Services Committee holds hearings on the controversial F-35 program, Radio Sputnik hears from Pierre Sprey, one of the designers of the F-16, to discuss how the beleaguered fighter jet is emblematic of the US military industrial complex… ‘I would say that the cost will come out to $200 million per airplane,’ Sprey tells Loud & Clear, referring to the F-35 Joint Strike fighter developed by defense giant Lockheed Martin… ‘Maybe more. Maybe the bills will be even larger, because this airplane is in the middle of testing, and every time they test it they find another failure, and another failure means an expensive fix that has to be put into the production line.’.. While the F-35’s developers tout its stealth capabilities, Sprey finds that to be a misleading description: ‘[Stealth] was an advertising hook when it was first developed as a multibillion dollar program in the early 80s,’ he says. ‘Stealth itself dated all the way back to World War II, but was a relatively cheap and low-level operation until [former US Defense Secretary] Bill Perry saw it as a hook for selling a whole new generation of missiles and very expensive bombers and fighters.’ “

How NATO-linked Think Tanks Control EU Refugee Policy – by F. William Engdahl, Journal-NEO.org – “What the newly-self-confident German Chancellor did not tell her hostess, Anne Will, or her viewers was that “her” plan was given to her just four days earlier, on October 4, in a document already titled The Merkel Plan, by a newly-created and obviously well-financed international think-tank called the European Stability Initiative or ESI. The ESI website showed that it had offices in Berlin, Brussels and in Istanbul, Turkey… Suspiciously, the authors of the ESI plan titled their plan as if it had come from the German Chancellor’s office and not from them. More suspicious is the contents of The Merkel Plan of ESI. In addition to already taking more than one million refugees in 2015, Germany should ‘agree to grant asylum to 500,000 Syrian refugees registered in Turkey over the coming 12 months.’ In addition, ‘Germany should accept claims from Turkey…and provide safe transport to successful applicants…already registered with the Turkish authorities…’ And finally, ‘Germany should agree to help Turkey obtain visa-free travel in 2016.’.. That so-called Merkel Plan was a product of US and NATO-linked think tanks and of governments of NATO member countries or prospective members. The maxim “follow the money trail” is instructive in this case to see who really runs the EU today… ...Already it becomes clear that the “Merkel Plan” is the Soros Plan in fact. But there is more if we wish to understand the darker agenda behind the plan.(emph. added)

Nuland-Making-OfferNULAND TELLS CYPRUS TO CUT RUSSIAN TIES – PRESSURES ANASTASIADES TO ACCEPT NATO PLAN FOR TURKISH TROOPS IN CYPRUS – by John Hellmer, JohnHellmer.net – “The US is intensifying the pressure on Cyprus to accept a secret NATO plan to keep Turkish forces on the island… Victoria Nuland, the State Department official in charge of regime change in Russia and Ukraine, met for talks last week with the President of Cyprus, Nicos Anastasiades, and with Turkish Cypriot figures. The State Department and US Embassy in Nicosia have kept silent on what was said. A well-informed Cypriot source reports Nuland ‘was in Cyprus to pre-empt any likelihood of future deepening in relations with Russia. Anastasiades may not want to, but he may have no other option.’ A second Cypriot political source said: ‘[Nuland] will try to blackmail him. I’m not sure how he will react.’ “

In Israel, an Ugly Tide Sweeps Over Palestinians – by Jonathan Cook, InformationClearingHouse.info – “Attacks on soldiers were wrong, said Mr Bahloul, but a Palestinian such as Mr Al Sharif – who tried to stab soldiers at a checkpoint in the West Bank city of Hebron – was not a “terrorist” by any normal definition. Terrorists target civilians, Bahloul noted, not soldiers enforcing an illegal occupation… Other Zionist Union MPs raced to disown Mr Bahloul, while Mr Herzog warned that the party was unelectable as long as it was seen as full of “Arab lovers”… Mr Bahloul is hardly the first Palestinian politician in Israel to find himself denounced as a “bad” Arab. But the others have mostly sinned by demanding an end to Israel’s status as a Jewish state. Israel is currently promulgating a law to oust such dissenters from the parliament… Now the earth is shifting beneath the feet of formerly “good Arabs” such as Mr Bahloul, the small number who cling to the belief that a self-declared Jewish state can be fair to them… It is no longer just the state’s Jewishness that is sacrosanct. The occupation is too… Salim Joubran, the only Palestinian judge in the supreme court, fell foul of this creed last week as the court considered an appeal from Raed Salah, leader of the northern Islamic Movement, against his jail sentence for incitement to violence.’

Syria – Russia Rejects Kerry’s New Attempts To Shield The Terrorists – by Moon Of Alabama, InformationClearingHouse.info – “The U.S. has for long considered al-Qaeda a secret ally in its attempt to destroy the Syrian state. The French magazine L’Orient Le Jour sees the U.S. relation with al-Qaeda in Syria as part of the attrition strategy the U.S. is waging against Syria (and Russia)… Secretary of State Kerry tried to convince the Russian that al-Qaeda should not be attacked during the cessation of hostilities. But the Russian’s did not agree. Al Qaeda is a UN recognized international terrorist organization which, under UNSC resolutions, must be fought. The U.S. only succeeded in downgrading the permanent ceasefire the Russians had preferred to into a temporary cessation hostilities. It thought to use the time to rearm and to regroup its proxy forces… But then thing went wrong. An offensive along the Turkish border to push away the Islamic State and to seal the border between the Islamic State and Turkey failed. Al-Qaeda convinced other groups, including directly U.S. supported CIA assets, to prematurely attack Syrian government forces south of Aleppo on Tal el-Eis. The attack mad only little progress before it was stopped… Now al-Qaeda and the U.S. proxies are heavily targeting the government held western arts of Aleppo city…”

Brutus_TemerThe Empire of Chaos Strikes Back – by Pepe Escobar, Strategic-Culture.org – “Soon after the impeachment motion against President Dilma Rousseff was approved in the Brazilian Congress by what I chose to call Hybrid War hyenas, President-in-Waiting Michel «Brutus» Temer, one of the coup’s articulators, dispatched a senator to Washington as special paperboy to deliver the news on the coup in progress. The senator in question was not on an official mission for the Senate Foreign Relations Committee… Brutus Temer was alarmed by global media reaction, which is increasingly interpreting what he’s doing – allied with Brutus Two, notoriously corrupt head of the lower house Eduardo Cunha – for what it is: a coup… The senator’s mission was allegedly to launch a PR offensive to counter the coup narrative, which is, according to Brutus One, «demoralizing Brazilian institutions»… It may be brilliant, even masterful, in its conception and in its execution, and it’s so flashy in a cinematic sense. But make no mistake; there will be blowback.”

Bombs-for-HellCannonSyria: Aleppo is Burning and Western Media is Silent – by Vanessa Beeley, 21stCenturyWire.com – “Two days ago, a friend in Aleppo messaged me: ‘Aleppo is burning. Numerous shells.’.. He was not referring to the lies found in corporate media on Aleppo, but instead to the unreported reality: foreign-backed terrorists have continued mortaring, rocketing, hell-cannoning Aleppo’s residential areas… Since his message, various Syrian news outlets and individuals have reported on further bombardments of Aleppo, as well as yet another terrorist bombing in Damascus’ Sayyeda Zeinab district, an area which has been repeatedly targeted by western-backed terrorists… From Damascus countryside, Syrian journalist, Mohamed Ali, wrote: ‘Live from the explosion scene near Sayyeda Zeinab quarter in Damascus countryside. At least 8 people killed and 20 injured.’.. Later, Xinhua updated, ‘Death toll rises to 15 in Syria checkpoint car bomb attack’… Today, Syrian analyst Kevork Almassian noted: ‘Within only 24 hours, the Turkish backed terrorists showered the residential areas of ‪#‎Aleppo‬with 200 unguided mortars and gas jars, killing many many civilians… As a passionate reader of history, I’ve never seen such shameful silence by the international community over the horrific atrocities committed by the so called “rebels”. In the contrary, the Western governments are praising ‪#‎Erdogan‬ and empowering him on the expense of our lives in ‪#‎Syria‬.’ ”

Entire Police Force in Colorado Quits, Abandoning Their Posts … Town Doesn’t Descend into Chaos – by Matt Agorist, ActivistPost.com – “Unfortunately, the town of Green Mountain Falls will likely seek out a new group of armed enforcers to ticket them for petty offenses, but in the meantime, this is a perfect example of how societies can function peacefully without the threat of state violence… The idea that police protect you is a misconception as well, as they will seldom prevent violence. They normally show up after the violence or crime has been committed and then try and find a culprit, or not… The average response time to a 9-1-1 call is 10 minutes nationwide; for poor areas that time quadruples. In some cases, the dispatchers do not even take the caller seriously and the victim ends up dead, when a crime could have actually been prevented… The reality is that police act as revenue collectors for the state and solely exist to enforce the law only… Police in America also do not “protect and serve.” If you doubt this claim simply refer to Warren v. District of Columbia, in which the Supreme Court ruled that the police do not have a constitutional duty to protect a person from harm.” (emph. added)

Syrian Elections Confirm West’s Worst Fears – by Tony Cartalucci, ActivistPost.com – “This reality confirms the West’s worst fears, that despite all attempts to divide and destroy the modern nation-state of Syria, the people remain relatively united in cause to restore peace and order within the nation, and to do so with the current government leading the way… It is also ironic that the United States and Europe endlessly expound the virtue of self-determination but now attempt to undermine an exercise in that very self-determination by the Syrian people… It is clear by the statements made by the United States and several European nations regarding the recent elections that the problem was not necessarily the manner in which the elections were held, but who they included. It was not candidates Syrian law excluded from the elections, but candidates the United States and Europe simply do not approve of. In other words, the US and Europe are doing precisely the opposite of promoting self-determination in Syria and are in fact attempting to undo or otherwise undermine the credibility of the results of the recent elections.”

Thinking the Unthinkable: Russia Has Re-Emerged As a Great Power – by Jonathan Adelman, HuffingtonPost.com – “This begs the question: how Russia could again become a major power after the disintegration of the Soviet Union in 1991? How could Putin do this without an agrarian or consumer revolution and with the massive drop in the price of oil? If Putin is a terrible leader, then how can you explain successful interventions in Georgia (2008), Crimea (2014), Ukraine (2014-2016) and Syria (2015-2016)?.. Putin, however, is actually a very shrewd leader with a brilliant Foreign Minister, Sergei Lavrov, who relies on a capable Foreign Ministry. Putin has rebuilt Russia’s military capability by spending $49B a year on security. Russia retains 1,790 strategic nuclear weapons. With over 140 million people and 13 million college graduates, Russia has nearly a million first-class scientists, engineers and technicians, most of whom work for the military.”Cen

Soros-DavosGeorge Soros: Anti-Syria Campaign Impresario – by Vanessa Beeley, 21stCenturyWire.com – “You may be asking why is this relevant to the BBC truth distortion. As explanation, please consider the inclusion of the BEEB in the Open Democracy website. Then have a look at the Open Democracy impressive list of funders and donors. No surprise for many of you that George Soros, Open Society Foundation is on that list. In fact, the only “philanthropic” mogul missing is the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation… Then, let us consider who holds the purse strings of the majority of the primary propaganda rings and regime change facilitating NGO elements in Syria… The yellow brick road of Neocon ambitions and imperialist missions- impossible in Syria leads unerringly to the global chaos strategist, George Soros, pedalling furiously behind his NGO Humanitarian shield… First a reminder from The Wrong Kind of Green’s NGO myth shattering article, Syria, Avaaz, Purpose, the art of selling hate for Empire. : ‘It should not be considered a coincidence that at the same time, a polished, sophisticated and highly financed “Save Syria” campaign is being created in the board rooms of the Empire’s favourite Harvard boys… Where, under the organization Avaaz, the public hasn’t acquiesced to an air strike on Syria, the New York public relations firm Purpose Inc. has stepped in.’ ”

 

Soros Warns China Credit Cycle Has Gone “Parabolic” Just To Keep Zombies Alive – by Tyler Durden, ZeroHedge.com – “Simply put – as we highlighted with the shenanigans in the steel industry – China is attempting reflate its economy once again by reviving zombies who have now died twice. This can only end badly, and Soros was not alone in his opinions: ‘Whether we call it stabilization or not, I am not sure,’ Andrew Colquhoun, the head of Asia Pacific sovereigns at Fitch Ratings said in an interview in New York. ‘From a credit perspective, we’d be more comfortable with China slowing more than it is. We are getting less confident in the government’s commitment to structural reforms.’.. The stabilizing trend isn’t giving investors “enough confidence,” as China seems to have relied more on government investment in state-owned enterprises to boost the economy, said Gao Xiqing, former vice chairman of the China Securities Regulatory Commission, in an interview in New York this week.”

A Great Awakening: Public Support For Fake “Free Trade” Deals Plunges – by Mike Krieger, ZeroHedge.com – “Public opposition to the sovereignty killing corporate giveaway marketed as a free trade deal known as the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) has become so widespread that all the leading candidates for the U.S. Presidency are publicly against it. Specifically, Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders are virulently opposed, while Hillary Clinton is pretending to be against it in order to harvest votes… Essentially, the more time the American public has to learn about this scam, the more they are against it. Which is precisely why the Obama administration wants to push it through as quickly as possible.”

Civilian_CasualtiesUS ups civilian casualty tolerance in Syria, Iraq – from PressTV.ir – “The US Defense Department has passed new rules allowing higher levels of allowable civilian casualties in its military campaign against Daesh positions in Iraq and Syria, Pentagon officials say… Six Pentagon officials, all speaking on condition of anonymity, described a sliding scale of allowable civilian casualties based on the value of the target and the location, USA Today reported Tuesday… The Pentagon has delegated more authority to US Army Lieutenant General Sean MacFarland, head of the US-led coalition against Daesh (ISIL) in Iraq and Syria, to approve targets when civilians could be killed… This is while previously, it was the US Central Command that made the decisions on missions that ran a higher risk of killing innocents.”

The World Health Organization is finally raising concerns about antidepressants prescribed to children – by J. D. Heyes, NaturalNews.com – “There is such a dramatic increase in the prescribing of antidepressants for children in the West, that the World Health Organization (WHO) is taking a closer look – and is becoming concerned… As reported by the BBC, the increases are sizable: 60 percent in Denmark; 49 percent in Germany; 26 percent in the United States; and 17 percent in the Netherlands, between 2005 and 2012, a new study shows… After a warning was issued about the drugs in 2004, based on concerns that some of them were leading to suicidal behavior, usage fell. But as new research indicates, the numbers are back up – way up, in fact.”

Common Core Education: Surveillance and Sexualization of Children – by Makia Freeman, WakingTimes.com – “Common core is the set of educational standards for American children funded by Bill Gates, the very same man who is pushing GMOs, vaccines and other New World Order (NWO) Agenda 21-style schemes. In another example of blatant doublespeak, the curricula are named “Common Core State Standards”, despite the fact they were forced onto the states with bribes, came top-down from the US Federal Government and were written by the international elite. Common Core first came onto the scene in 2009, after Obama took office, using money from the $350 million stimulus package. Common Core is another manifestation of a long-held dream of the NWO manipulators to replace the family with the State, a plan laid out in novels such as Brave New World by Aldous Huxley, which included reference to State hatcheries (i.e. State control of reproduction).

Tory MP calling for British troops to risk death for Saudi Arabia, is on the Kingdom’s payroll – by James Wright, TheCanary.co – “Conservative MP Rehman Chishti is calling for British troops to provide air cover to Saudi ground forces should they enter Syria. Meanwhile, according to parliamentary records, the MP for Gillingham and Rainham is being paid £2,000 a month as an adviser for the Riyadh-based King Faisal Centre for Research and Islamic Studies… As Middle East Monitor reports, the institution’s Chairman is the ex-chief of Saudi Arabia’s intelligence services, Prince Turki Bin Al-Faisal. He served as intelligence chief from 1977-2001 and was known to bankroll jihadist groups in Afghanistan… Chishti claims to advise on “international relations covering Europe and the Middle East”, despite the organisation’s website stating that none of its six research units involve Europe. The only nations listed are Saudi Arabia, Maghreb (north-west Africa) and Iran. So it’s hard to see exactly where Chishti’s advice comes in.” (emph. added)

4 year olds asked to choose gender they ‘most identify with’ on school form – from RT.com – “In a letter sent to thousands of families confirming children’s primary school places for the coming school year, Brighton and Hove City Council requested parents help their children choose what gender they identify as… The letter advised parents to leave the form blank and speak with the school if their child “had a gender identity” other than male or female… ‘We recognize that not all children and young people identify with the gender they were assigned at birth or may identify as a gender other than male or female, however the current systems (set nationally) only record gender as male or female,” the letter read.”

Abbas-MerkelIsrael settlement expansion counterproductive to peace: Merkel – from PressTV.ir – “German Chancellor Angela Merkel has slammed Israeli settlement expansion in the occupied Palestinian territories as “counterproductive” to the so-called two-state solution… In a joint press conference with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in Berlin on Tuesday, Merkel also expressed concerns over the stalemate in the Middle East negotiations… ‘I am critical of the settlement policy,’ Merkel said, adding she had conveyed her concern to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu… ‘I have expressed my mind critically to the Israeli Prime Minister many times that … these settlement activities are counterproductive,’ she said… Abbas, for his part, stressed that Israel’s ‘housing development is the biggest problem for the attainment of freedom.’ “

Venezuela’s Opposition: Attacking Its Own People – by Eric Draitser, TelesurTV.net – “As renowned economist and former Venezuelan ambassador to the United Nations, Julio Escalona explained in Caracas on the eve of the December 2015 elections which ushered the right-wing back into the National Assembly: ‘The majority of Venezuela’s imports and distribution networks are in the hands of the elite … Many of the goods needed for Venezuelan consumption are diverted to Brazil and Colombia. We are experiencing manufactured scarcity, a crisis deliberately induced as a means of destabilization against the government … This is psychological war waged against the people of Venezuela in an attempt to intimidate them into abandoning the government and the socialist project entirely.’.. Of course, there’s little doubt that the scarcity of goods is largely manufactured for political ends. One need only look at the conspicuous reappearance of goods in the immediate aftermath of the right-wing Unity Roundtable victory in the December 2015 elections to see how connected the supply problems are with political agendas. Additionally, massive hoarding of basic consumer goods in warehouses owned by prominent Venezuelan business interests sheds added light on the lengths to which the right-wing opposition and elites will go to make their own country’s economy scream.”

Haim_Saban-n-HillaryPresidential Candidate Hillary Clinton will Hold Fundraiser in Israel on May 17 – from VeteransNewsNow.com – “Foreign money injected into our political process? Hum?.. Sarah Bard, Hillary Clinton’s director of Jewish outreach, will headline a fundraiser in Tel Aviv, Israel on May 17. Is this okay with you?.. In fact, there’s been a lot of Israel news in the primary process lately and I’m going to play catch-up on it here… First, this just in. Hillary Clinton is going to have a fundraiser in Tel Aviv. Her Jewish outreach director will hold it. Remember that Clinton has pledged Haim Saban to fight the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement aimed at Israel, so she’s putting her money raising where her mouth is… Clinton has also been raising a ton of pro-Israel money in L.A. Haim and Cheryl Saban have just kicked in another $2 million on top of $5 million they gave last year to her SuperPac, Priorities USA Action. Yahoo: ‘Steven Spielberg and Jeffrey Katzenberg have each given $1 million to Priorities, and Katzenberg has been lining up donors to the group… Saban, Katzenberg and Spielberg were all co-hosts of a fundraiser featuring Hillary Clinton at the home of George Clooney on Saturday..’… All these men (Clooney excepted) are ardent Zionists. Katzenberg has said that Israel “is a jewel. It’s this amazing beautiful gem that exists in a place where there are not a lot of gems.’ “

Shock: Scientists Work To Destroy Old Polio Vaccine After Admitting it Causes Polio – by Adan Salazar, PrisonPlanet.com – ” ‘Health workers have been taught to destroy the old vaccine by boiling it, incinerating it, even burying it in the ground,’ reports NPR.org… The old vaccine, health experts claim, targeted a polio strain – type 2 – that has been all but wiped out since 1999. Since vaccines contain live, but weakened strains of the viruses they intend to fight, the strains often mutate and can cause polio… ‘Last year,’ for instance according to NPR, ‘the world recorded about 100 cases of polio. About 30 of them were caused by mutant strains from the old vaccine. The new vaccine also has a live virus in it, but it mutates much less often. So in the long run, it should cause about 90 percent fewer cases.’.. The new vaccine only targets Type 1 and Type 3 polio strains, so it’s vital to destroy the older strain as there will no longer be a vaccine to protect against it... ‘If some aren’t” completely destroyed, reports NPR, “some of that virus could leak out into the world, and we could have outbreaks of a type of polio we haven’t seen since 1999.’ “

Assad_Banners-SyriaNEO – US Coalition Fails to Strangle Syrian Elections – by Jim W. Dean, VeteransToday.com – “The last thing the opposition groups wanted to see or acknowledge was their tremendous defeat at the polls, as they could not continue their charade of representing the majority of the Syrian people, which is a bad joke… Damascus controls 80% of the population now, and that includes 90% of the refugees from areas still under terrorist or the so-called moderate rebel control… For example, 80% of the Aleppo population is in the government-held areas there, or refugees in other parts of the country, yet our democratic West does not think they should have the right to have their political voices heard at the beginning of the talks… As a result of the Syrian anti-terrorism coalition success, 1.7 million refugees are already returning to their homes. All are eligible for immediate loans to begin rebuilding their shattered lives. Don’t bother to look for news about this in Western media or Voice of America. It is not there, but that is nothing new.”

Leiani-and-Mother-RebeccaMichigan Forces Mom of Medically Kidnapped Teen to Sleep in Car – Issues Gag Order to Keep Story out of the Media – from HealthImpactNews.com – “Child Protective Services took a sick child away from her family and placed her in a place that Leiani describes as a dirty place with “bugs crawling all over,” where she was forced to sleep on a thin mattress on a concrete floor… In January, the court appeared to reunite the family, and it appeared that Leiani was going to be free. The Save Leiani Facebook page reported: ‘Leiani is Free! As you might expect there were things that had to be bargained for. We appreciate all of your support.’.. Her freedom was apparently only an illusion… In order for Leiani to escape her captivity in Children’s Village and move home with her step-father, there were strings attached. The cost of her daughter’s freedom meant that Rebecca would have to move out of the family home… Leiani, who is now 17 1/2, is only permitted to see her mother for 30 minutes per week, and can have a 15 minute phone call with her mom each week. She was told that if she were to make contact with her mother other than during the approved visits, she would be sent back to Children’s Village… Her health has not recovered completely. Leiani is still experiencing stomach troubles, and they still don’t know what is causing her condition… With all available funds going to pay for attorneys, there was nothing left over to pay for a hotel. As a result, Rebecca sleeps in her truck, even during the cold Michigan winter.”

Russian_jets_over_SyriaPropaganda AlertU.S. split deepens over Putin’s intentions in Syria civil war – by Jonathan Landay and Phil Stewart, Reuters.com – “Russia’s latest military moves in Syria have sharpened divisions within the U.S. administration over whether Russian President Vladimir Putin genuinely backs a U.N.-led initiative to end the civil war or is using the negotiations to mask renewed military support for Syrian President Bashar Assad… Russia has repositioned artillery near the disputed city of Aleppo, several U.S. officials told Reuters. Despite withdrawing some fixed-wing aircraft in March, Russia has also bolstered its forces in Syria with advanced helicopter gunships, and renewed airstrikes against moderate opposition groups, said U.S. officials, speaking on condition of anonymity… The Russian reassertion of military backing has prompted some U.S. officials to warn that a failure to respond would be seen by Moscow as a fresh sign of American timidity. (Note: It wouldn’t be Manly not go kill more Syrians) That, they say, could encourage Russia to escalate challenges to U.S. and allied militaries through more provocative Russian air and naval maneuvers.”

Iran, Germany, Arab League, US reject Israel claim over Golan Heights – from PressTV.ir – ” ‘It’s a basic principle of international law and the UN Charter that no state can claim the right to annex another state’s territory just like that,’ said German Foreign Ministry spokesman Martin Schaefer, adding that Tel Aviv lacked the legal basis for annexation… Separately, Washington rejected Tel Aviv’s claim, saying it would not recognize the occupied region as part of Israel… ‘The US position on the issue is unchanged. This position was maintained by both Democratic and Republican administrations. Those territories are not part of Israel and the status of those territories should be determined through negotiations,’ said State Department spokesperson John Kirby, stressing that the current situation in Syria does not allow such a move… The first quick response was from Syria itself on Sunday, when its Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad vowed to liberate the Golan Heights from Israeli occupation at any cost and return it to Syria.”

Al_aqsa2‘Fake Jewish graves in Muslim cemeteries’: UNESCO slams Israeli occupation of Palestinian sites – from RT.com – ” The Israeli authorities are furious after a UNESCO resolution stated that the Temple Mount and holy sites in Hebron and Bethlehem are an “integral part of Palestine.” The organization also criticized Israel, “the occupying power,” for planting fake graves in Muslim cemeteries… Two tourist destinations, the Cave of the Patriarchs in the heart of the old city of Hebron and Rachel’s Tomb in Bethlehem, are named in the paper as “Palestinian sites.” The draft decision by the UNESCO executive board on occupied Palestine was released April 11… UNESCO ‘reaffirms that the two concerned sites located in… Hebron and in Bethlehem are an integral part of Palestine’ and ‘disapproves the ongoing Israeli illegal excavations, works, construction of private roads for settlers and a separation wall inside the Old City of… Hebron, that harmfully affect the integrity of the site,’ the statement says… UNESCO slammed Israeli attacks on Muslims in the Temple Mount, which it only refers to by its Arabic name, Al-Haram Al-Sharif, and its holy site, Al-Aqsa Mosque… The organization ‘strongly condemns the Israeli aggressions and illegal measures against the freedom of worship and Muslims’ access to their Holy Site Al-Aqsa Mosque/Al-Haram Al Sharif, and requests Israel, the Occupying Power, to respect the historic Status Quo and to immediately stop these measures,’ the statement says.”

Jordan’s Refugee Camps. Blatant Human Rights Violations – An Expat’s Perspective – by Siraj Davis, GlobalResearch.ca – “The following elucidates the grim conditions of immigration detention camps and the defective process of deportation existing within Jordan, which innocent migrant workers have endured for so long, in silence. Organizations such as Human Rights Watch, Tamkeen, Global Detention Project, and more have persistently attempted to raise awareness on the preceding conundrum… I strongly feel my personal experience may append some insight to their efforts. Recently, I and my wife (an Iraqi refugee), were unexpectedly arrested and quickly deported from Jordan -upon orders of the Jordanian Mukhabarat (intelligence)- for my passion in highlighting Syrian refugees’ tribulations and for me reporting labor violations and corruption to the National Centre of Human Rights, Tamkeen, and the Anti-Corruption Commission of Jordan.”

Mercola-UV_BedFTC attack on Dr. Mercola nothing but an attempt to intimidate natural health proponents… Mainstream press parroting all Big Pharma’s talking points – by J. D. Heyes, NaturalNews.com – “As reported by the Chicago Tribune, Dr. Joseph Mercola was forced to settle a claim of false advertising with the Federal Trade Commission for selling tanning beds that were designed not to cause cancer… Following the settlement, Mercola will have to reimburse customers of the tanning beds, which he sold for between $1,200 and $4,000, some $5.3 million, while also promising never again to sell them… The Trib reported further: ‘Mercola, 61, uses his website and books to back a number of discredited, fringe medical causes on topics that include vaccinations and fluoridated water. He stars in web videos for his company, Mercola Health Resources, and wrote articles in which he claimed cold winters in the Midwest meant Chicagoans, in particular, would benefit from his tanning beds, which he said could “reverse your wrinkles” and “slash your risk of cancer.” ‘… No condescension there, right?”

Michigan Couple Faces Jail Time Over Lost Dr. Seuss Library Book – by Marlena Fitzpatrick García, Alternet.org – “A Michigan couple could serve up to 93 days and face a maximum $500 fine for failing to return a novel and a Dr. Seuss book borrowed from the local public library… In December, Cathy and Melvin Duren of Tecumseh, Michigan, received a letter advising them to return the books and pay the fees, as well as the replacement costs if they couldn’t find the books. The letter also informed them that they could be charged with a crime… In January, the couple was able to find and return “The Rome Prophecy.” They lost a Dr. Seuss book their teenage son borrowed for their granddaughter in July 2014… Admitting their negligence in returning the books, they still believe it’s unfair to each be charged a $105 “diversion fee” to the Lenawee County Economic Crimes Unit in addition to fines owed to the Tecumseh Public Library, WXYZ-TV reported… ‘I can’t image going to jail over it, but I certainly will fight these charges because I’m not guilty,’ Cathy Duren said… Cathy Duren sent a $55 money order to the prosecutor’s office to cover the late fees and replacement costs for the lost book. But Cathy Duren said her money order was refused because she and her husband declined to pay the additional $210 in diversion fees to the Lenawee County prosecutor’s crime unit. As a result, the couple had to pay $100 bond to avoid going to jail last Friday when they were served with arrest warrants.”

Sheep-TVOnly 6% of Americans trust the media – survey – from RT.com – “A survey of more than 2,000 adults released on Sunday showed that trust in the media has dipped to dramatically low levels. About 52 percent of respondents said they have “some confidence” in the press, while 41 percent said they have “hardly any confidence.”.. ‘Over the last two decades, research shows the public has grown increasingly skeptical of the news industry,’ the report from the American Press Institute reads. ‘The study reaffirms that consumers do value broad concepts of trust like fairness, balance, accuracy, and completeness. At least two-thirds of Americans cite each of these four general principles as very important to them.’.. While the report didn’t point out any specific recent instances that have led to the erosion in public trust, the AP pointed to a Rolling Stone article on a campus rape that received widespread coverage in the US, but ultimately had to be retracted. It also highlighted inaccurate reports on the Supreme Court’s first ruling upholding Obamacare… There have also been accusations of biased coverage of the current presidential campaigns, especially with respect to outsider candidates such as Donald Trump and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.”

Britain’s scientists must not be gagged – A ban on state-funded academics using their work to question government policy is to begin on 1 May. It’s either a cock-up or a conspiracy – by Robin McKie, TheGuardian.com – “Unless government officials make a major U-turn in the next few days, many British scientists will soon be blocked from speaking out on key issues affecting the UK – from climate change to embryo research and from animal experiments to flood defences. This startling, and highly controversial, state of affairs follows a Cabinet Office decision, revealed by the Observer in February, that researchers who receive government grants will be banned, as of 1 May, from using the results of their work to lobby for changes in laws or regulations… The aim of the Cabinet Office edict was (purportedly) to stop NGOs from lobbying politicians and Whitehall departments using the government’s own funds. The effect, say senior scientists, campaigners and research groups, will be to muzzle scientists from speaking out on important issues. The government move is a straightforward assault on academic freedom, they argue.”

Huffington Post goes all-in for pro-vaccine propaganda, BANISHES veteran writer from website for posting honest review of VAXXED documentary – by J. D. Heyes, NaturalNews.com – “…he explained what had happened after he contributed his piece: ‘I sent it to Huffington Post as I normally do–I have an account there–and they published the article. About a half hour later as I was sending it out to my network I was alerted by some folks that when they went to access it it was not coming up. It turns out that they pulled down the original piece and when I tried to rewrite it I was alerted that permission was denied to my account. I have made at least a half dozen attempts to reach someone at HuffPo to alert them that there was a malfunction and over the course of the last two days have not received one response. I even went so far as to email Arianna herself… ‘It never crossed my mind that this might be some sort of censorship because it has never happened to me and the article, while provocative, is not beyond any bounds of journalistic or political propriety… This is seriously troubling.’.. You can read the entire interview here.”

Apache-Half_Moon-editUS to send 200 more troops, Apache helicopters to Iraq to fight ISIS – from RT.com – “US Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter indicated on April 16 that the US military will boost its operations against Islamic State… ‘You should expect us, to see us, doing more,’ Carter said, according to the New York Times. ‘It will be consistent with the same approach, but it’ll be across all the domains, right up to cyber.’.. The US will also send as many as 200 special operations forces to advise and assist US-allied Syrian fighters battling Islamic State, NYT reported… Carter said any additional US military forces in Iraq and Syria are not replacements for Iraqi security forces or Syrian fighters in opposition to Islamic State. Additionally, a US military spokesman in Iraq said last week that the initial phase of the US-led campaign against Islamic State was complete and that the campaign has moved to a new phase… ‘During this phase, we will enable our partners to dismantle the enemy, fragment his forces, isolate his centers of gravity and liberate the terrain he holds,’ said Col. Steven H. Warren.”

“Syrian Opposition” Ends Peace Talks, Launches New Offensive In NW Syria – by Brandon Turbeville, ActivistPost.com – “…the High Negotiations Committee (HNC), the official Syrian “opposition” negotiating committee working in Geneva, announced that it was suspending formal peace talks, a statement that was corroborated by Steffan de Mistura, the UN Special Envoy to Syria… The HNC did, however, state that it would remain in Geneva and continue with “informal” discussions between its terrorist constituency and the Syrian government and that the two bodies would be “taking stock” on Friday… The collapse of the ceasefire agreement is concerning for more reasons than the fact that full-scale fighting is now returning to a country ravaged by 5 years of warfare. The United States and its imperialist coalition are reportedly discussing not only continuing but increasing their support to terrorists on the ground by providing them with more sophisticated weaponry, possibly even including MANPADs… The introduction of such material to the Syrian battlefield will pose a direct threat to the Russian Air Force as well as to passenger airliners across the world. It is also not a threat that will be taken lightly by the Russians.”

Mountain_Bike-about-to-crashIt’s a Speed Trap! California Cops to Check Bicycle Speed with Radar and Ticket Fast Bikers – by Matt Agorist, ActivistPost.com – ““We want to get data, educate users and hopefully gain a useful tool,” said Max Korten, assistant director of county parks. ‘Through the Road and Trail Management Plan there are a number of proposals to open trail alignments to bikes that have caused safety concerns among some neighbors and preserve visitors about the speed of bikes on the trails,’ he said. ‘It’s important that as we consider implementing some of these proposals; we have a tool to address this potential issue.’.. Mercury News reported Korten billed the program as a “pilot effort,” saying officials ‘don’t have good data about how often speeding is occurring on open space trails and we have not used this technology on open space roads and trails in the past.’ (Note: gotta have good data!)… In a discouraging move, instead of rejecting the premise of the state forcing cyclists to travel at an arbitrary speed through the threat of extortion, some local hiking and cycling groups are embracing it.” (Note: Slaves militate to demand harsher treatment!)

Erdogan-the-PashaErdogan: Pretender to the Ottoman Throne Threatens to Exile Five Million Turks – by Thierry Meyssan, 21stCenturyWire.com – “The Turkish government being the world record holder for imprisonment of senior officers, lawyers and journalists, much was expected of the speech that President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan would deliver on April 5, 2016 at the White Palace on the occasion of the Law Day… Erdoğan blew hot and cold before an audience of silent jurists. According to him, yes, professional structures must be pluralistic. However, this goal cannot be achieved without first cleaning the Bar of the influence of partisan groups, that is to say political opponents… The current problems of the country are the result of the decline of “Islamic values” and foreign oppression, he said… President Erdoğan no longer hides his project for the domination of Turkish ethnicity and the creation of a 17th empire… Driven by racial logic, he just opened a procedure to remove the parliamentarians of the party of minorities, the HDP. He now plans to deprive all voters of the HDP of their nationality, that is, 5 million opponents… Given the passivity of the European Union, he is trying to push his advantage further by suspending the agreement concluded on March 18th until Brussels exempts Turkish nationals from Schengen visas.” (emph. added)

Assads_vote-2016Syrian Elections 2016: US, NATO Criminals, Liars & Hypocrites’ Failed Attempt to Deny the Will of the Syrian People – by Vanessa Beeley, 21stCenturyWire.com – “Now lets have a look at the President that western governments and their media minions would have us believe to be a bloodthirsty, butchering dictator as he and his wife Asma head for the polling booths with no security in sight… Compare this if you will, to the protests being held across Britain demanding that David Cameron aka “Dodgy Dave” resign over the Panama papers scandal, the subsequent police clamp down and the manhandling of protestors… Perhaps even more laughable in the face of the UK Government’s own deteriorating human rights record at home and abroad, is their statement on the Syrian elections: ‘Britain said Damascus’ decision to go ahead with the elections in the war-torn nation, where hundreds of thousands cannot take part, shows “how divorced (the government) is from reality.” ‘ “

Deutsche Bank Confirms Silver Market Manipulation In Legal Settlement, Agrees To Expose Other Banks – by Zero Hedge, SRSRoccoReport.com – “Which is why we were surprised to read overnight that not only has this lawsuit against precious metals manipulation not been swept away, but that the lead defendant, troulbed German bank Deutsche Bank agreed to settle the litigation over allegations it illegally conspired with Bank of Nova Scotia and HSBC Holdings Plc to fix silver prices at the expense of investors, Reuters reported citing a court filing on Wednesday showed… Terms were not disclosed, but the accord will include a monetary payment by the German bank, a letter filed in Manhattan federal court by lawyers for the investors said… It goes without saying, that there would have been neither a settlement nor a payment if the banks had done nothing wrong.”

Gilad_Atzmon_3 Rwanda Genocide – The Israeli Connection – by Gilad Atzmon, Gilad.co.uk – “It would be encouraging to imagine a genocide that is totally free of any Jewish involvement. Sadly, the Rwanda genocide doesn’t fit into this mythical category… Haaretz reported last week that the Israeli Supreme Court decided to uphold the denial of a Freedom of Information request to make public documents about Israeli ‘defense’ exports to Rwanda at the time of the 1994 genocide in that country… In 2014, attorney Eitay Mack and Prof. Yair Auron submitted a request to the Defense Ministry under the Freedom of Information Law, asking for details of Israeli arms exports to Rwanda between 1990 and 1995. In 1994, hundreds of thousands of Tutsi minority Rwandans were slaughtered by the Hutu majority during Rwanda’s civil war… Israel’s Defense Ministry refused the request, saying this information “was not to be divulged.”.. Mack and Auron appealed to the Supreme Court who unanimously rejected their appeal. The Court held that; ‘We found that under the circumstances the disclosure of the information sought does not advance the public interest claimed by the appellants to the extent that it takes preference and precedence over the claims of harm to state security and international relations.’ ”

Censorship of medical truth reaches fever pitch as corrupt medical establishment attempts to silence growing number of films and books about cancer and vaccines (w/podcast) – by Mike Adams, NaturalNews.com – “The for-profit cancer industry is silencing the truth about cancer because its profits depend on an ever increasing population of people being diagnosed with cancer. Preventing cancer would cost them billions in lost profits! (The profit model of the cancer industry is based on repeat business…)… How cancer doctors deliberately and falsely diagnose people with cancer even when they’re perfectly healthy… just so they can earn massive profits “treating” people with toxic chemotherapy… Criminals and con artists are now running the cancer centers across America… all the top pharmaceutical makers have been involved in felony crimes like bribery and price fixing… drug companies run medical experiments on children… fake drug studies… commit scientific fraud on a routine basis… The Truth About Cancer is also being viciously attacked by a terrified industry that hates the public having access to information on preventing, treating and even reversing cancer. Watch the interviews at this link… • TTAC is the most “dangerous” collection of films and interviews that have ever been assembled to counter the propaganda of the cancer industry. The cancer establishment wants to criminalize freedom of speech about medicine in order to control the narrative.”

CIA Prepares to Arm Syrian Rebels With Lethal Weapons if Truce Collapses – from SputnikNew.com – “The message that ‘all bets will be off’ and the so-called Plan B will come into force should the truce collapse and negotiations lead nowhere was reportedly relayed by CIA Director John Brennan and State Secretary John Kerry in private meetings with Russian counterparts… ‘The outside patrons will double and triple down, throwing everything they can into Syria, including much more lethal weaponry,’ a senior US President Barack Obama administration official told The Wall Street Journal late Tuesday… The CIA and its regional partners are considering various types of anti-aircraft weapons for deliveries to Syrian rebels, although US and Mideast officials declined to specify the precise systems, citing the program’s sensitivity and concerns with Syrian government backers’ possible countermeasures.” (emph. added)

Homeless-in-UKBetter off in jail? Women given tents & sleeping bags instead of homes when released from prison – from RT.com – “Women released from British prisons are being issued with tents and sleeping bags because of a shortage of accommodation, it has emerged… A report carried out last November indicates 103 prisoners were discharged from HMP Bronzefield in Surrey in 2015 with nowhere to go… The figures appear to echoed further analysis that female prisoners are in an increasingly precarious position when they are released… The number of women leaving jail with a secure place to go fell to around 88 percent in 2015, from 95 percent the previous year… The report found that Bronzefield performed well overall, but said ‘the prison had issued tents to two women who were released without anywhere to go to and the chaplaincy often gave out sleeping bags.’.. Prison director Charlotte Pattison-Rideout said the private jail works with local authorities to house those released but that the shortfall ‘affects the whole of the prison estate.’.. In a statement on the revelations, Labour’s Shadow Prisons Minister Jo Stevens lauded the progress which had been made, but said it is ‘absolutely staggering that women seem to have been released from prison with nothing more than a tent or a sleeping bag.’ “

Welcome to ‘Walking Dead Europe’ – by Pepe Escobar, RT.com – “Walking Dead Europe manifests itself in myriad ways – from a “No” to a referendum in the Netherlands to the creeping possibility of Brexit. Now add to this the ultimate insult a stark fact: What could the EU possibly offer to the world as a vision when it subcontracts the security gates of Fortress Europe to the wily, carpet-dealing antics of Turkey’s Sultan Erdogan?.. Even avowed Europeanists such as Le Monde – a former great newspaper turned Empire of Chaos-cheerleading rag – are now distilling long essays about the malaise… As much as the fascination with declining empires may still hold sway (it’s so chic to digress about it, Death in Venice-style, sipping Cristal and eating Iranian caviar), seasoned veterans at the European Commission (EU) in Brussels cannot but avow their perplexity when confronted to the EU machine’s death wish… It’s always easy to forget that the EU project was born in May 1950 as a common market; common coal and steel rendering impossible a new war between France and Germany, everything guaranteed by the American protector. This de facto American security protectorate implied NATO, from the start, was the real deal – much more than the budding mini-EU expanding under the aegis of Pax Americana and the largely manufactured fear implicit in the Cold War.”

Big_Brother-Soros-AVAAZEurope: A Better Plan for Refugees – Soros: “The refugee crisis poses an existential threat to Europe (pay for it by) levying special EU-wide taxes” – by George Soros, NYBooks.com – “Now the task is fundamentally different. As with the euro crisis, the refugee situation is at a critical point and requires a very quick response. But it differs from the euro crisis in that the countries to which the funds would be aimed—like Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey, and Greece—are merely on the frontlines of what must be a collective European undertaking; they are entitled to grants, rather than loans, and should not be obliged to repay the monies they receive… If we accept this reality, how then will the surge funding get repaid? The answer is that the EU and its member states must find new sources of tax revenue, and do so in a way that spreads the repayment obligation as widely as possible. This could be done by levying special EU-wide taxes. The new tax revenue could come from a variety of sources, including the EU-wide VAT, which already provides revenue to the EU; a special tax on gasoline, as Minister Schäuble has suggested; or a new tax on travel into the EU and on visa applications, which would shift some of the burden onto non-EU citizens wishing to travel to the EU.”

Kenya-VaccinationThis is why Kenyan bishops are urging people to resist WHO’s polio vaccine – by Evelyn Pringle, NaturalNews.com – “Bishops of the Catholic Church in Kenya have for years warned residents of the country not to get the World Health Organization’s polio vaccine. The reason the clergy have urged Kenyans to refuse this vaccine was stated simply and concisely in an article by Steven Mosher, President of the Population Research Institute and author of the book Population Control: Real Costs, Illusory Benefits: ‘Given that they have been subjected to more than a half century of population control programs under the guise of ‘family planning’ and ‘reproductive health,’ who can blame them?’.. Ten million of Kenya’s 45 million residents are Catholic, and the Catholic ‘Church has an extensive network of health facilities that include 58 hospitals, 83 health centers, 311 dispensaries and 17 medical training institutions,’ according to a October 7, 2014, press release by the Catholic Health Commission of Kenya… The bishops called for a boycott of the polio vaccination campaign due to reservations about the safety of the vaccine. The bishops said they wanted ‘to carry out more independent testing on the vaccines to make sure they don’t contain estrogen derivatives, which they claim are being used to sterilize women and children,’ Care2.com reported on August 14, 2015″

America and Other Rogue Regimes Denounce Syrian Democratic Elections – by Stephen Lendman, SJLendman.blogspot.com – “A separate article said they shame America’s sham (voting) process. Syrians decide who’ll govern. US voters have no say whatever… State Department deputy spokesman Mark Toner criticized Syria’s constitutionally required April 13 general elections irresponsibly – turning truth on its head, calling them ‘not legitimate in the sense that they don’t represent…the will of the Syrian people’ – an utter perversion of truth… French President Francois Hollande called Thursday’s elections ‘provocative (and) totally unrealistic.’.. A UK regime statement called legitimate Syrian elections shaming Britain’s sham process ‘divorced from reality,’ adding they ‘cannot buy back legitimacy by putting up a flimsy facade of democracy.’.. Other critics denounced what they called rubber-stamp governance serving Assad, undermining peace talks going nowhere – ignoring overwhelming popular support for Ba’ath Party and coalition partner candidates… Assad and his wife Alma voted on Wednesday at the Assad Library in Damascus. Foreign Minister Walid al-Moallem said ‘(W)e in Syria always say that the Syrian people decide their destiny and today they are proving practically the accuracy of this saying.”

Saudi-Terror-R-UsSaudi Arabia sends ammunition to anti-Iran terror groups in Pakistan – from PressTV.ir – “Saudi Arabia’s former Crown Prince Muqrin bin Abdulaziz says his country is supplying anti-Iran militant groups in neighboring Pakistan with large volumes of ammunition… According to Turki bin Nasser bin Abdulaziz, the kingdom’s former head of the presidency of meteorology and environment, Muqrin made the remarks when they paid a visit to former deputy minister of defense and aviation Abdul-Rahman bin Abdulaziz at the King Faisal Specialist Hospital in Riyadh, where he had been hospitalized for some health problems earlier this month, Kuwaiti online newspaper Alaan reported on Wednesday… Muqrin said, citing military sources, that Riyadh had sent the ammunition via C-130 military transport planes in five stages to terrorists in Pakistan’s southwestern province of Balochistan which borders Iran. The aircraft unloaded their cargos at Dalbandin airport, which was constructed by the financial assistance of Saudi Arabia in the 1980’s… He also said that the Saudi Arabia, via Kuwait, had also sent similar ammunition cargos to anti-Iran militants who are active near the border of Iran’s southwestern province of Khuzestan.”

The War on Savings: The Panama Papers, Bail-Ins, and the Push to Go Cashless – by Ellen Brown, OpEdNews.com – “The bombshell publication of the “Panama Papers,” leaked from a Panama law firm specializing in shell companies, has triggered both outrage and skepticism. In an April 3 article titled “Corporate Media Gatekeepers Protect Western 1% From Panama Leak,” UK blogger Craig Murray writes that the whistleblower no doubt had good intentions; but he made the mistake of leaking his 11.5 million documents to the corporate-controlled Western media, which released only those few documents incriminating opponents of Western financial interests. Murray writes: ‘Do not expect a genuine expose of western capitalism. The dirty secrets of western corporations will remain unpublished.’.. Expect hits at Russia, Iran and Syria and some tiny “balancing” western country like Iceland. Iceland, of course, was the only country to refuse to bail out its banks, instead throwing its offending bankers in jail… Pepe Escobar calls the released Panama Papers a “limited hangout.” The leak dovetails with the attempt of Transparency International to create a Global Public Beneficial Ownership Registry, which can collect ownership information from governments around the world; and with UK Prime Minister David Cameron’s global anti-corruption summit next month. According to The Economist, ‘The Panama papers give him just the platform he needs to persuade other governments, and his own, to turn their tough talk of recent years into action.’.. The Daily Bell suspects a coordinated global effort linked to the push to go cashless. It’s all about knowing where the money is and who owns it, in order to tax it, regulate it, “sanction” it, or confiscate it: ‘Without privacy, authoritarianism flourishes because it is impossible to build and expand private networks that would act as a deterrent . . . . A worldwide transparency regime virtually guarantees abuses and corruption from those in power.’ “

Jerusalem-Demolishing_ShedIsrael’s ‘Bible Trail’: Demolishing Palestinian homes to make national parks – by Jonathan Cook, MiddleEastEye.net – “The green ink may look innocuous on paper, but for 50-year-old Totanji it signals the impending arrival of bulldozers to demolish his one-storey house, leaving the family of 16 – including a seven-month-old granddaughter – homeless… As Israeli authorities declare “national parks” over residential areas, thousands of Palestinians living in overcrowded neighbourhoods close by Jerusalem’s Old City are being trapped in a similar planning nightmare… Planners and human-rights group accuse the Israeli authorities of increasingly using such parks as a tool to grab control of Palestinian land and demolish homes, under the guise of archaeological preservation and tourism development… ‘Uniquely in East Jerusalem, the national parks include residential areas,’ she told Middle East Eye. ‘They are a monster making these families’ lives a misery.’.. A court order written in Hebrew – a language Totanji does not understand – demands that the family vacate their four-room house by 10 April. He lost an appeal last month… ‘It’s not just a house that is being destroyed but my whole life,’ he told MEE.”

3 States of Mind to Embrace the Coming Energy – by Michael Forrester, WakingTimes.com – “There is not one human being on Earth today that truly understands what is coming because they continue to interpret concepts from a linear third density reality–a reality that is (virtually) long gone and no longer making all the rules within the new consciousness. It’s now about multi-dimensionality. How can we exist within a new energy thinking through old patterns? We can’t. We won’t. Not without thinking and feeling through new states of awareness. An understanding that everything is happening at once. That we are selecting the potentials that best align with our current state of being, picking those we think will work and then manifesting those experiences… Until we grasp that the new consciousness revolves around a quantum reality sifting through multiple dimensions, we will keep repeating the same old patterns until it hits home. I repeat, all the things that are happening to you right now will keep happening over and over until you can transform the new reality within you. It’s a reality that works for you, instead of against you. A reality that flows freely instead of resisting what could be.”

Aztec-SacrificeHow Elites Used Human Sacrifice to Enforce Inequality in Ancient Societies – Elites knew the value of fearmongering even way back when – by Kali Holloway, Alternet.org – ” ‘By using human sacrifice to punish taboo violations, demoralize the underclass and instill fear of social elites, power elites were able to maintain and build social control,’ lead study author Joseph Watts stated in a press release… ‘[H]uman sacrifice provided a particularly effective means of social control because it provided a supernatural justification for punishment,’ says study co-author Russell Gray. ‘Rulers, such as priests and chiefs, were often believed to be descended from gods and ritual human sacrifice was the ultimate demonstration of their power.’.. ‘What we found was that sacrifice was the driving force,’ says researcher Quentin Atkinson, ‘making societies more likely to adopt high social status and less likely to revert to egalitarian social structure.’ ”

The modern slave trade: Growing, highly profitable – and backed by Britain – by Gary Craig, IBTimes.co.uk – “The news that criminal gangs have penetrated refugee communities from the area hit by the Nepali earthquake and are offering their children for sale as domestic servants in the UK and other wealthy destinations is shocking, but not surprising. This kind of transaction is happening all over the world… For those concerned about the emergence of modern forms of slavery, it is a commonplace that the numbers of adults and children trafficked into sexual or labour exploitation, including domestic servitude, is huge and growing… Compared with the 200 years of the Transatlantic Slave Trade, during which around 14 million black Africans were forcibly trafficked across the Atlantic to the Caribbean and the Americas, there are now probably in excess of 30 million adults and children at any one time who could be regarded as modern slaves. At this order of magnitude, there remains considerable doubt about precise numbers.”

Natl_Weather-Serv-w-TrailsGag Orders Imposed By Washington To Prohibit Chemtrail and Geoengineering Truth – from ChemtrailsMustStop.com – “What follows is a special report from PEER which contains the following statement: ‘This summer, the National Weather Service began requiring a signed confidentiality agreement (Exhibit I) from NWSEO participants along with all participants on the OWA teams. These agreements purport to bind NWSEO representatives from communicating with its members, members of Congress or any other person regarding agency plans and how they are determined. These agreements also do not contain terms allowing reports of actual or impending law or rule violations, gross mismanagement, waste or abuse.‘..

NASA-ChemtrialsNASA Confesses to Dosing Americans with Air-borne Lithium & Other Chemicals – by Christina Sarich, StateOfTheNation2012.com – “There’s the official explanation for why NASA is spraying lithium, a pharmaceutical drug most often used to treat people with manic depression or bi-polar disorder, into our ionosphere, and then there is the probable reason(s). It would be easier to accept NASA’s official explanation if they were not so secretive about everything they study and do in space – but one thing is for certain – NASA’s own personnel have admitted that lithium, along with other chemicals, are intentionally being placed into our environment regularly. It is possible that many of NASA’s own employees aren’t even aware of the true motivations for carrying out such a project, ironically displaying the very behaviors that these chemicals/pharmaceuticals are meant to instill… In the first bomb-shell video a NASA employee (Douglas.e.rowland@nasa.gov) admits that lithium is being sprayed in the atmosphere, and says that it is “harmless to the environment.”

Why is lithium being used in the chemical geoengineering program over Oregon? – from StateOfTheNation2012.com, with Ann Fillmore, PhD – “Excerpt from Locke’s second letter: ‘These dispersal plumes contain lithium and other psychoactive compounds. The areas targeted as of March 1st are inland valleys and coastal towns south of Florence. Over the next two months, additional spraying operations will be conducted to increase targeting areas in the Portland metropolitan area.’.. In both letters, he explains that he is …’an employee of a weather data collection company and, by proxy, a subcontractor for the National Weather Service office in (central Oregon). In my work for the aforementioned institutions, I collected data, e.g. soil samples, that were used to direct spraying operations for the last three years.’.. Note that – THREE YEARS.”

Jefferson Graham reports from the F8 Developer conference in San Francisco…’We are one global community,’ he said. ‘Whether we are welcoming a refugee fleeing war or an immigrant seeking opportunity, coming together to fight a global disease like Ebola or to address climate change.’ (Note: Propaganda Catapult alert)… ‘As I look around the world, I’m starting to see people and nations turning inward, against the idea of a connected world and a global community,’ Zuckerberg said. ‘I hear fearful voices calling for building walls and distancing people they label as ‘others.’ I hear them calling for blocking free expression, for slowing immigration, for reducing trade, and in some cases even for cutting access to the internet.’.. ‘Mark Zuckerberg’s vision is both benevolent and altruistic as well as entirely self interested at the same time,’ (Note: which is which?) said Greg Sterling, contributing editor to SearchEngineLand.” (emph. added)

 

EMF Frequencies, the Science of the Electric Brain & Mind-Control Technology – Patrick Flanagan and Jeff Rense – 14min 33sec

For the week of 4/4/16:

George_FriedmanSTRATFOR Chief Reveals Zio-Anglo-American Plot For World Domination – from StateOfTheNation2012.com – “The statements and responses made by George Friedman are both reckless and reprehensible to the extreme. As a highly paid advisor to the U.S. Federal Government and various NGOs, his services ought to be discontinued post-haste. His casual references to upsetting world peace and committing naked acts of aggression toward foreign nations in the interest of rapacious neocon conquest are completely unacceptable… The lawless coterie of government officials, military officers, think-tank executives, NGO presidents, corporate CEOs, university chancellors and media moguls needs to be exposed for implementing such a malevolent and destructive agenda. Truly, an overwhelmingly nefarious neocon/neoliberal conspiracy has been exposed on video by Stratfor’s George Friedman. Whether this was done by design or by accident can only be guessed at; nonetheless, its exposure will be critical to bringing about its final termination. After all, when the last century’s “Cold Warriors” are removed from the chess game, there cannot be a 21st century version of the Cold War.”

Netanyahu to Kerry: Declare Israel doesn’t commit extrajudicial killings – from JTA.org – “Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reportedly asked John Kerry to publicly state that Israel does not carry out extrajudicial killings, after a group of U.S. lawmakers asked the secretary of state to investigate such claims… Meanwhile, Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., the lead lawmaker making the request, rebuked Netanyahu for his initial response to the revelation of the letter, saying the Israeli leader misunderstood the relevant law, which requires defunding military units underwritten by U.S. government funds should they be found in violation of U.S. human rights norms… The Times of Israel reported that Netanyahu made the call to Kerry Friday… Netanyahu said in a statement Wednesday that the February letter by Leahy and 10 Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives calling for an investigation of alleged human rights abuses by his nation’s military should instead be directed at Palestinian inciters… ‘Israel’s soldiers and police officers defend themselves and innocent civilians with the highest moral standards against bloodthirsty terrorists who come to murder them,’ said the statement.”

US_ExtortionStatism in a Nutshell: From Thievery to Tyranny in Five Easy Steps – by Gary Z McGee, WakingTimes.com – “War is murder, no matter how you try to justify it. Taxation is theft, no matter how you try to codify it. Statism is tyranny, no matter how you try to rationalize it. No amount of justification, codification, and rationalization will get you off the hook for murder, thievery, and tyranny. The only solution? Stop justifying, codifying, and rationalizing murder thievery and tyranny. It can only be resolved from the ground up; never from the top down. Meaning: it begins with you. It begins by recognizing how individual thievery can become collective tyranny… Here’s a parable explaining the diabolical ease in which base thievery can become a tyrannical state. As Anthony de Mello said, ‘You have to understand, my dears, that the shortest distance between truth and a human being is a story.’ “

The Police State Suspends God-Given Unalienable Rights Under The Constitution – by John Whitehead, TechnocracyNews.com – “When presidential candidate Hillary Clinton declares that unborn babies do not have constitutional rights, she’s not just spouting partisan rhetoric in the heated national debate over abortion. She’s providing us with a glimpse into an increasingly troubling mindset among government officials who believe that the government not only has the power to determine who is deserving of constitutional rights in the eyes of the law but also has the authority to deny those rights to an American citizen… The unborn are not the only persons being denied their rights under the Constitution… American families who have their dogs shot, their homes trashed and their children terrorized or, worse, killed by errant SWAT team raids in the middle of the night are being denied their rights under the Constitution.”

Pot-PrisonDrug War is Crumbling: Town Converts Prison into Cannabis Grow Facility – by Justin Gardner, ActivistPost.com – “As we reported in February, Adelanto, a former prison town, turned to cannabis cultivation to save its economy. David McPherson, who advises Adelanto and about 160 other cities on tapping into the cannabis market, was present at the Coalinga city council meeting to promote the plan… McPherson reportedly drew gasps from the crowd when he confirmed that Adelanto’s revenue projections from cannabis facilities are more than their general fund. Taxation should not be the driving force behind legalization, but at least here it is helping to end one form of prohibition… Coalinga would not only relieve this burden on citizens and provide the highest quality medical cannabis products, but it would also create jobs. Ocean Grown Extracts, the company planning to use the former prison to grow cannabis for oil extract, would provide 55 jobs in the first year of business.”

GUARDIANSHIP: How Judges and Lawyers Steal Your Money – by Katherine Hine, ActivistPost.com – “Stories included in the book follow the same basic sequence of events: (1) allege that the target is in imminent danger – to justify emergency temporary guardianship and the isolation of the target from his or her family – all without even a pretense of a due process hearing; (2) employ a willing psychiatrist or other MD to prescribe the contra-indicated psychotropic drugs to propel the ward into a stupor just in time for the “competence evaluation;” (3) begin the feast by liquidating the target’s non-liquid assets and looting everything in sight; and (4) continue looting until the target is killed by the premeditated over-drugging topped off with opiates. On occasion guardians can and do continue looting even after their victim’s death.”

Bill_Gates-Vaccine_VialsThe repeated circle of lies against Andrew Wakefield all trace back to Bill Gates, proponent of global depopulation and genocide against humanity – by J. D. Heyes, NaturalNews.com – “For years, the medical community, Big Pharma, academia and certain philanthropic foundations have repeatedly sought to discredit and ruin Dr. Andrew Wakefield, a British former gastroenterologist and medical researcher who demonstrated a link between the MMR vaccine and autism… One of the philanthropist organizations involved in the effort to discredit Wakefield is the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, run in part by the billionaire Microsoft founder, who has donated millions for vaccine research and who, in 2010, advocated for depopulating the world in a TED talk… Many of the same lies to discredit Wakefield have long been discredited themselves, but the same old players in Big Pharma, academia and the “science” community continue to regurgitate them as though they were true.”

New study implicates endocrine mimickers, GMOs and forced vaccinations in sinister eugenics program aimed at wiping out unintelligent people – by Julie Wilson, NaturalNews.com – “A study published last month by the Center of Global Consciousness, explores the manner in which humans are being pushed to the brink of extinction through a sinister eugenics program orchestrated by the world’s elite, using forced vaccinations, industrial pollutants and Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs)The Subversion of Medicine and Public Health by International Security Prerogatives delves into the underlying basis of eugenics, the concept that in order for civilization to “progress,” the unintelligent need to be swiftly weeded out. ‘The higher the level of civilization, the better off the population,’ eugenicists argue, adding that a high IQ can only be passed on through heredity… In order to accept this theory, one must believe that an individual’s contribution to society is based solely on IQ, a rather foolish way of looking at things considering morality, compassion, patience and kindness, are far more valued in today’s society than an IQ score.”

Devon, NaturalNews.com – “Bihar’s Agriculture Minister, Narendra Kumar Singh…said he is committed to blocking the entry of genetically modified corn, even if the central government permits it to come into the country. Singh assured the people that their seeds will be protected from contamination of genetic material drift and that rich harvests full of diverse, nutrient-dense crops will remain the standard in the state… His speech was given at the 2014 Seed Festival at the A N Sinha Institute of Social Studies. The Seed Festival featured over 500 different varieties of crop seed. The inaugural event featured agriculture experts from Bihar, Chhattisgarh and Kerala who represent a growing movement against genetically modified crops in India.

Imperialism via Data: The Digitization of Human Behavior, “Social Radar”, Sensors and Neuroscience – by John Stanton, GlobalResearch.ca – “Consider The MITRE Corporation’s development of Social Radar. In Social Radar for Smart Power, Mark Maybury writes: ‘Conventional radar requires signatures for different kinds of objects and events: it needs to be tuned to different environmental conditions to provide accurate and reliable information. Analogously, a social radar needs signatures, calibration, and correlation to sense, if not forecast, a broad spectrum of phenomena (e.g., political, economic, social, environmental, health) and potentially forecast changing trends in population perceptions and behaviors. For example, radar or sonar enable some degree of forecasting by tracking spatial and temporal patterns (e.g. they track and display how military objects or weather phenomena move in what clusters, in which direction(s) and at what speed.) A user can thus project where and when objects will be in the future. Similarly, a social radar should enable us to forecast who will cluster with whom in a network, where, and when in what kinds of relationships…Public Opinion Polling by Proxy (POP/P) [is] an exploration of the ability of social media (e.g., Twitter) to serve as a proxy for traditional opinion polling methods to overcome their latency, expense, and invasiveness.’.. If We Kick the Ant Hill, Where will the Ants Go?: The US national security community’s dream is to have a Social Radar–like the one described above by Maybury—that would allow military commanders to lord over other countries.”

Putin_in_Gold_VaultWhy are Russia and China Buying Gold, Tons of it? – by F. William Engdahl, Journal-NEO.org – “While all eyes are on the oil price and the ruble to dollar rate, the Central Bank of Russia has quietly been buying huge volumes of gold over the past year. In January, 2016, the latest data available, the Russian Central Bank again bought 22 tons of gold, around $800 million at current exchange rates, that, amidst US and EU financial sanctions and low oil prices. It was the eleventh month in a row they bought large gold volumes. For 2015 Russia added a record 208 tons of gold to her reserves compared with 172 tons for 2014. Russia now has 1,437 tonnes of gold in reserve, the sixth largest of any nation according to the World Gold Council in London. Only USA, Germany, Italy, France and China central banks hold a larger tonnage of gold reserves… Notably also, the Russian central bank has been selling its holdings of US Treasury debt to buy the gold, de facto de-dollarizing, a sensible move as the dollar is waging de facto currency war against the ruble. As of December, 2015, Russia held $92 billion in US Treasury Bonds down from $132 billion in January 2014.

Attacking National Leaders Through ‘Psychological Pincers’ – by Prof.Dr. Vladimir Prav, SouthFront.org – “Psychological attacks attempt to take the target into veritable “pincers.” They are effective because the target, in the form of a national government, is subjected to pressure from both legitimate and “shadowy” actors, attacking from both above and below… In order to carry out a pincer attack, the attacker must satisfy five conditions: 1. Establish a psychological pressure environment… 2. Implementing the “pressure from below” scenario… 3. Organizing “pressure from above”… 4. Making the political decision… 5. Removing the pressure. Once the decision satisfies the organizers, its widespread and enthusiastic acceptance is organized. The situation returns to normal as the level of organizing activity drops off… The pincer mechanism works on many levels. It assumes the use of internal and external political forces to exert pressure. It can work on three levels at once—international, internal elite, and regional elite.”

Tsipras-Under_PressureIMF leak about ominous ‘event’ in Greece, ultimatum to Germany triggers Athens’ backlash – from RT.com – “The leaked document published by WikiLeaks on Saturday unveils a conversation between two International Monetary Fund (IMF) officials in charge of managing the ongoing Greek debt crisis – Poul Thomsen, the head of the IMF’s European Department, and Delia Velkouleskou, the IMF Mission Chief for Greece in March 19, 2016… The only reason why negotiations last year resulted in a deal between Greece and its creditors was because Athens was “about to run out of money seriously and to default,” Thomsen assumed during the conversation. The talks starting mid-April, he believes, could drag for months and will not bring the sides to a “decision point.”.. ‘That is not an event. That is not going to cause them to… That discussion can go on for a long time,’ said. ‘Because they are not close to the event, whatever it is.’.. ‘I agree that we need an event, but I don’t know what that will be,’ Velkouleskou replied, also agreeing that the talks would drag past July, as the UK “Brexit” referendum which is to take place in June 2016 is going to ‘paralyse European decision making at the critical moment.’.. Greece is “not even getting close” to accepting “our views,” Thomsen added. However, Velkouleskou said that if Athens is “pressured enough,” they would. ‘But they don’t have any incentive and they know that the Commission is willing to compromise, so that is the problem,’ she added.”

Will Lebanon be ‘Handed Over’ to ISIS? – by Andre Vltchek, Journal-NEO.org – “So what will happen if the Lebanese military gets no new weapons? Maybe Iran could help, but if not? Then Hezbollah would be the only force facing the ISIS that will soon be pouring out of the liberated cities in Syria in all directions, particularly towards the coast of Lebanon. But Hezbollah is ostracized, choked and demonized by the West and the Gulf… One tiny new Israeli invasion and almost all Hezbollah forces would be tied up in the south, the ISIS would attack from the north, the dormant cells would be activated in Beirut, Tripoli and other cities, and Lebanon would collapse within few days. Is this a plan? After all, Israel and Saudi Arabia are two close allies, when it comes to their ‘Shi’a enemies’… Then this tiny, proud and creative country would basically cease to exist… The Gulf States (their rulers, not the people) would rejoice: another bastion of tolerance gone. And one more Shi’a stronghold – Hezbollah areas inside Lebanon – would be plundered and destroyed… The West might be officially expressing its ‘concern’, but such a scenario would fit into its master plan: one more rebellious country would be finished, and Syria would for years be threatened from the western direction. After all, Damascus is only 30 minutes drive from the Lebanese border.”

Why the failed pharma-based healthcare system is bankrupting America – by J. D. Heyes, NaturalNews.com – “In its first year in office, the administration expressed concern about skyrocketing healthcare premiums in “The Burden of Health Insurance Premium Increases on American Families,” a report that no doubt was mostly intended as propaganda, to help convince the American people to push their representatives to pass Obamacare. The concern then was that premiums had risen 5.5 percent from 2008 to 2009… According to the Freedom Partners report, though premiums increased 28 percent from 2009 to 2014, wages increased by only 7.8 percent. From 2004 to 2009, though premiums increased by 30 percent, wages increased by 12.2 percent… In addition, the data reveals that health costs are rising faster than inflation… ‘The average annual cost of a family’s employer-sponsored health insurance policy was $17,545 in 2015, which marks a 4.2 percent increase from the 2014 average of $16,834, while the inflation rate remained low at 0.1 percent,’ says the report. ‘With health care costs still rising faster than inflation six years after passage of the Affordable Care Act, it is clear that the law is not helping lower the burden of health care expenses for American families.’.. What’s more, beleaguered Americans suffering through fewer opportunities for high-paying jobs and stagnant wages are going to see their premiums increase again next year, the group says.”

Patrick_LeahyHere’s What Happens When a U.S. Senator Calls for Israel to Be Held Accountable for Atrocities – Sen. Patrick Leahy wants Israel and Egypt investigated for brutal killings committed with American military aid – by Sarah Lazare, AlterNet.org – “Released just days after an Israeli soldier was recorded extra-judicially assassinating a wounded Palestinian man in the occupied West Bank city of Hebron, Leahy’s demand for a probe is the latest sign that American military backing for Israel’s right-wing government is becoming a source of political tension…On February 17, Leahy (D-Vt.) and ten Democratic members of Congress sent a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry. “There have been a disturbing number of reports of possible gross violations of human rights by security forces in Israel and Egypt—incidents that may have involved recipients, or potential recipients, of U.S. military assistance,” states the document, which was released to the public in late March. ‘We urge you to determine if these reports are credible and to inform us of your findings.’.. The joint condemnation was met with sharp criticism from Ben Cardin, the ranking Democratic member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and a top recipient of contributions from the pro-Israel lobby. “There’s no comparison here,” Cardin told the publication Forward… Netanyahu lashed out last Wednesday, declaring: ‘The IDF and Israeli police do not engage in executions. Israel’s soldiers and police officers defend themselves and innocent civilians with the highest moral standards against bloodthirsty terrorists who come to murder them.’ ” (emph. added)

How the World’s View of the Palestine-Israel Conflict Is Changing Dramatically – More and more routinely Israel is now analyzed through the prism of South African apartheid practices – by Rami G. Khouri, AlterNet.org – “Israel has continued its heretofore largely successful propaganda tactics and associated political leverage that depict the Palestinians globally as violent anti-Semites who refuse to accept Jews in their midst and seek to destroy the state of Israel and kill Jews. Yet the pendulum of global public perceptions has swung back to a more balanced position that continues to criticize Palestinian armed resistance, political violence, and occasional acts of terrorism against civilians, but more and more routinely these days also analyses Israel through the prism of South African apartheid practices. Israel is worried, as it should be if apartheid is the political term most often associated with it.”

De_Niro-TribecaPowerful forces threaten Houston film festival to pull VAXXED documentary… – ‘heavy handed censorship’ by government officials who resort to financial extortion to shut down public screening – by Mike Adams, NaturalNews.com – “In an email sent to Philippe Diaz, Chairman of Cinema Libre, Distributor of Vaxxed: From Cover-Up To Catastrophe, Hunter Todd, the chairman of the festival, went on to say that ‘[W]e have been censored… There are some very powerful forces against this project.’.. Celia Farber, editor of The Truth Barrier which originally broke this story, characterizes the censorship assault on filmmakers as criminal behavior. ‘The situation has now apparently escalated to criminal conduct and extortion,’ she says in this Truth Barrier post… This action takes place following the coordinated mainstream media censorship of the same film from Robert De Niro’s Tribeca Film Festival, which pulled the film after it was condemned by pro-vaccine media journalists who had never even seen the film. VAXXED: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe is now the No. 1 most censored film of 2016 and has been dubbed, “The movie they don’t want you to see.”.. Watch the trailer for the film at: VAXXEDthemovie.com

Tel Aviv suspends cement deliveries to besieged Gaza Strip – from PressTV.ir – “Yoav Mordechai, the head of Israel’s military administration in the occupied Palestinian territories, announced on Monday that Tel Aviv had suspended imports of cement into Gaza, claiming that Palestinian resistance movement Hamas had diverted the building material to its own construction activities… The move means that hundreds of construction projects will be stopped and the reconstruction process following Israel’s 50-day war against Gaza, which severely damaged its infrastructure in the summer of 2014, would be hindered… In a statement, Nickolay Mladenov, the UN special coordinator for the so-called Middle East peace process, called for ‘a rapid resolution of this matter,’ and said ‘the reconstruction of Gaza remains critical to ensuring its stability.’: ‘The people of Gaza depend on the entry of construction material to repair and reconstruct their damaged and destroyed houses following the 2014 conflict and to enable much needed infrastructure and development projects,’ Mladenov said.”

Bubble-Bubble-YellenEconomist Warns: “A Tidal Wave Is Coming… Recession Indicator Has Turned Red” – by Mac Slavo, TheDailySheeple.com – “With corporate earnings for the first quarter of 2016 set to be the worst since the Great Recession, Societe Generale economist Albert Edwards is warning that the United States is about to be hit with a tidal wave. A tidal wave is coming to the US economy, according to Albert Edwards, and when it crashes it’s going to throw the economy into recession: ‘…the profit recession facing American corporations is going to lead to a collapse in corporate credit… Despite risk assets enjoying a few weeks in the sun our fail-safe recession indicator has stopped flashing amber and turned to red… Whole economy profits never normally fall this deeply without a recession unfolding. And with the US corporate sector up to its eyes in debt, the one asset class to be avoided — even more so than the ridiculously overvalued equity market — is US corporate debt. The economy will surely be swept away by a tidal wave of corporate default.’.. Giving us further confirmation that something is amiss we need look no further than the brain trust known as our Federal Reserve. Earlier this week current Fed Chair Janet Yellen joined her predecessors Ben Bernanke, Alan Greenspan and Paul Volcker, all of whom argued that the U.S. economy is not only not in a bubble, but is on solid footing and a good trajectory – Via Zero Hedge: ‘So, I think we’re making progress there as well, and this is an economy on a solid course, um, not a bubble economy. Um, we tried carefully to look at evidence of potential financial instability that might be brewing and some of the hallmarks of that, clearly overvalued asset prices, high leverage, rising leverage, and rapid credit growth. We certainly don’t see those imbalances. And so although interest rates are low, and that is something that could encourage reach for yield behavior, I wouldn’t describe this as a bubble economy.’ ”

Watch Japan – For All Is Not Well In The Land Of The Rising Sun – by Michael Snyder, ActivistPost.com – “One of the epicenters of the global financial crisis that started during the second half of last year is Japan, and it looks like the markets in the land of the rising sun are entering yet another period of great turmoil. The Nikkei was down another 390 points last night, and it is now down more than 1,300 points since a week ago. Why this is so important for U.S. investors is because the Nikkei is often an early warning indicator of where the rest of the global markets are heading. For example, the Nikkei started crashing early last December about a month before U.S. markets started crashing really hard in early January. So the fact that the Nikkei has been falling very rapidly in recent days should be a huge red flag for investors in this country… And of course the economic fundamentals in Japan continue to deteriorate as well. GDP growth has been negative for two out of the last three quarters, Japanese industrial production just experienced the largest one month decline that we have seen since the tsunami of 2011, and business sentiment has sunk to a three-year low.”

Is the U.S. Postal Service the Next Target for Corporate Plundering? – Organizing the pushback against concerted efforts to undermine the agency – by Megan Sherman, Alternet.org – “The cuts come as a result of cost saving initiatives demanded by critics of the agency who have required it to recognize long term retirement costs now. It’s a move supporters say has unfairly burdened the postal service with paper losses that do not reflect both the underlying health….and importance of the agency to workers and the communities they serve. Last week a series of speakers elaborated on the implications of such changes including the closing of mail processing centers and the reduction of hours. John L. Seibel, president of TrueBallot, are concerned slow mail service could hinder election efforts of potential candidates due to potentially slow mail service. Another concern are the middle class jobs the postal service has traditionally afforded to communities of color. George Askew, President of the Baltimore American Postal Workers Union, says that these cost cutting decisions affect the availability of stable union wage jobs.”

The Inevitable Failure Of The War On Cash – by Jeff Thomas, ZeroHedge.com – “When several countries had begun to limit the amount of money that a depositor could take out of a bank, I decided that the first shots in the War on Cash had been fired and began to publish my prognostications as to what shape it would take. First, there were the benefits to the bank (the elimination of cash transactions, which would assure that virtually all monetary transactions, large and small, would have to be passed through banks, allowing them to effectively “own” all deposits, charge for every transaction and even refuse transactions). The governments would also benefit. In approving the banks’ monopoly on monetary transactions, they’d benefit primarily through the new ability to tax people by direct debit, ending any remnant of voluntary payment of taxation… What I didn’t anticipate at that time was that, within a few months, the War on Cash would be escalated quickly—more quickly than was safe for them to do, as it could alarm depositors. (As in the old analogy of boiling a frog, it’s always best to turn up the heat slowly, to lull the victim into complacency as he’s being done in.)”

Here’s What Happens When You Tell the TRUTH in the US Military – by Claire Bernish, TheDailySheeple.com – “When 50 intelligence analysts working for the U.S. military’s Central Command came forward last year with allegations their reports had been whitewashed to frame the war against ISIL as a success, they likely didn’t expect to be fired for being honest — but that’s exactly what has now happened… In an exclusive report, three unnamed sources told the Daily Beast that ‘Two intelligence analysts at U.S. Central Command say the military has forced them out of their jobs because of their skeptical reporting on U.S.-backed rebel groups in Syria.’.. Superficially, these firings might appear inconsequential, but they confirm in earnest the government’s pro-military propaganda campaign — as well as the prerogative of staunch adherence to the pro-nationalist narrative. Stick to the script, in other words, or face the consequences.”

Already Under Crushing Debt, Arizona College Forces Students to “Fund Illegal Immigrants” – by Mac Slavo, SHTFPlan.com – ” ‘Prescott College in Arizona has decided to charge students a $30 annual fee to finance a scholarship fund for illegal immigrant students… The fee was originally proposed by students and faculty from the Social Justice and Human Rights program, according to Fox News, and will automatically be added to each student’s $28,000 tuition bill starting next semester unless they take advantage of an opt-out provision… Prescott College is a private institution, and does not receive either state or federal funding, but some experts warn that the school may yet face pushback over the new fee and scholarship, even as it seeks to bolster the fund through private donations.’.. Like President Obama, these colleges have put a premium on a protected minority group at the expense of ordinary Americans who have seen their living standards decline significantly with economic decline and globalization… At what point does the plight of the American aspirant become as a important as a “special” group that has been favored by politically motivated interests on campus, and what does that mean for the quality of “education” at such an institution?”

Pro-Israel lobby tells Prince Charles not to visit Iran – from RT.com – “WBII however has unequivocally called on the Foreign Office and Clarence House to abandon the plans… ‘We do not consider it appropriate for a member of the Royal Family to visit Iran and give credibility to the Iranian regime,’ the WBII petition reads… WBII Director Luke Akehurst said he is “disturbed” by the prospect of a royal visit to Iran, noting the regime’s alleged ties to terror groups, its senior figures’ denial of the Holocaust and calls for the destruction of Israel… ‘We find the proposed visit particularly strange as there has never been an official Royal visit to Israel, the only democracy in the region,’ said Akehurst, the Jewish Chronicle reports… In 2004, Prince Charles made an unofficial visit to the city of Bam in southeastern Iran in his capacity as president of the British Red Cross after an earthquake killed 40,000 people in the region.”

Rosenthal-De_Niro-Tribeca_IntervwWhy VAXXED Was Shot Down At Tribeca — Up Close And Personal (with link to Must See video) – by Jon Rappoport, ActivistPost.com – “So it could have gone this way. A player at NIMH calls the NYU Center; ‘I understand the Tribeca film Festival is going to show an insane film about vaccines causing autism. Craig Hatkoff, Jane Rosenthal’s husband, sits on your Board. Talk to the man. Straighten him out. Get him to come to his senses. What’s next? Is Tribeca going to sponsor a positive film about gun-toting militias taking over three Western states?’.. That’s the way things happen… Meanwhile, the CDC and the Sloan Foundation were making their pitches to shut down the film, but there is a strong probability those efforts were passing through Hatkoff or Rosenthal, too, because they’re very close to De Niro, and he was the one who needed to be convinced… Have a look at this recent FOX 5 NY interview, where De Niro and Rosenthal sit side by side. She looks for all the world like a “minder,” as the British would say. A gatekeeper. A worried monitor, keeping tabs on De Niro. He mentions that he still thinks the film should be shown, but not at Tribeca. She makes sure to emphasize that the film is not going to be shown at Tribeca, in case anyone has misinterpreted De Niro’s remarks.” (emph. added)

ISIS kidnaps over 300 Syrian civilians after attacking factory near Damascus – from RT.com – ” ‘We haven’t been able to reach our family members since noon on Monday after an attack by Daesh [Arabic pejorative term for IS] on the factory. We have no information about where they are,’ a resident of the town of Dmeir said on Thursday… The Badiyah cement factory is located outside Dmeir, about 50km to the east of the capital Damascus… A Syrian security source told AFP that IS forces had also attempted to take control of Dmeir airbase and a power plant, but had failed… Earlier on Tuesday, IS fighters started attacks against government forces in areas near Damascus, allegedly attempting to gain back territories after suffering losses across Syria… In particular, IS attacked the Tishrin power station, located 50km from the capital. A Syrian military source confirmed to Reuters that the attack took place, adding that all the assailants were killed.”

Deutsche_Bank-Decline-April16Deutsche Bank Is Crashing Again As European Banks Slide To Crisis Lows – by Tyler Durden, ZeroHedge.com – “We commented on this yesterday using, ironically enough, a note by Deutsche Bank strategist Jim Reid, in which we showed all the things that were not supposed to happen when Draghi unleashed his massive quad-bazooka QE expansion… The problem is that now that global central banks are more focused on appeasing China and keeping the USD weaker (by way of a dovish, non-data dependent Fed), the pain for Europe (and Japan), and their currencies, and their banking sector, will likely only get worse. This is precisely the case proposed by Francesco Filia of Fasanara Capital, who explains below his “Short European Bank Thesis.”.. Here is his note: ‘Here below, we update our views on negative rates and our consequential short European Banks equity and sub debt thesis. In a nutshell, we think that not only no bank is ever designed to survive in an environment of deeply negative rates for a prolonged period of time, but their business model is further impaired by negatively sloping interest rate curves. In a twisted unwelcome side-effect following ECB meeting, curves are ever closer to inversion in Europe. They recently became inverted in Japan, for the first time since 1994…’ ”

U.S. Delivers 3,000 Tons Of Weapons And Ammo To Al-Qaeda & Co in Syria – from MoonOfAlabama.org – “The Janes author tweeted the full article (copy here)… One ship with nearly one thousand tons of weapons and ammo left Constanta in Romania on December 5. The weapons are from Bulgaria, Croatia and Romania. It sailed to Agalar in Turkey which is a military pier and then to Aqaba in Jordan. Another ship with more than two-thousand tons of weapons and ammo left in late March, followed the same route and was last recorded on its way to Aqaba on April 4… We already knew that the “rebels” in Syria received plenty of weapons during the official ceasefire. We also know that these “rebels” regularly deliver half of their weapon hauls from Turkey and Jordan to al-Qaeda in Syria (aka Jabhat al-Nusra): ‘Hard-core Islamists in the Nusra Front have long outgunned the more secular, nationalist, Western-supported rebels. According to FSA officers, Nusra routinely harvests up to half the weapons supplied by the Friends of Syria, a collection of countries opposed to Assad,.. U.S. and Turkey supported “rebels” took part in the recent attack on Tal al-Eis against Syrian government forces which was launched with three suicide bombs by al-Qaeda in Syria. This was an indisputable breaking of the ceasefire agreement negotiated between Russia and the U.S. It is very likely that some of the weapons and ammunition the U.S. delivered in December were used in this attack.”

Must Read: Hybrid War, From Palmyra to Panama – by Pepe Escobar, SputnikNews.com – “In its current stage, the Panama Papers have morphed into a weaponized psyops posing as an ‘activist leak’, straight from the Hybrid War playbook… The relentless, expert mainstream media exposure has been at pains to portray the massive leak as “responsible journalism”, yet without addressing eyebrow-raising questions on how the leak really came about; how 2.6 terabytes of data, including 5 million emails, have been selective edited; how it was obtained without encription; how there was not a single leak while the whole hoard was being sorted out by 400 or so reporters for over a year; and how the information is being selectively released… The key overall objective is to prevent Eurasian integration by all means available. As for Wall Street, what matters is to build a One World flow of American capital to the benefit of a turbocharged casino capitalist system controlled by the US — and not Eurasia. Compared to the Big Picture, Panama may eventually yield the odd road kill. Not enough. Be prepared for the long haul. For the gas-guzzling Hybrid War Monster Truck, the road goes on forever.”

Is Hillary Clinton ‘Qualified’? – by Robert Parry, ConsortiumNews.com – “Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has dismissed Sen. Bernie Sanders questioning her qualifications to be President as “silly” – and looking at her résumé alone, she’d be right – but there is also the need to judge her performance in her various jobs… What is troubling about Clinton’s record is that she has left behind a trail strewn with failures and even catastrophes. Indeed, her highest profile undertakings almost universally ended in disaster – and a person’s record should matter when voters are deciding whether to entrust him or her with the most powerful office on earth… In other words, it’s not just a question of her holding one prestigious job or another; it’s also how well she did in those jobs. Otherwise, you have a case of the Peter Principle Squared, not just letting someone rise to the level of his or her incompetence, but in Clinton’s case, continuing to get promoted beyond her level of incompetence… Yet, on the campaign trail, Clinton continues to defend her instigation of the Libyan war, disputing any comparisons between it and the Iraq War by rejecting any “conflating” of the two. Yet, the two disasters – while obviously having some differences – do deserve to be conflated because they have many similarities. Both were wars of choice justified by false and misleading claims and having terrible outcomes.”

Beirut-Ready-for-WarLebanon – Now It Is Being Forced to Collapse – by Andre Vltchek, GlobalResearch.ca – “These days, on the streets of Beirut, one can often hear: ‘Just a little bit more; one more push, and the entire country will collapse, go up in smoke.’.. Is this what the West and its regional allies really want?.. Top foreign dignitaries, one after another, are now paying visits to Lebanon: the U.N. chief Ban Ki-moon, World Bank Group President Jim Yong Kim and the EU foreign policy chief, Federica Mogherini. All the foreign visitors are predictably and abstractly expressing “deep concern” about the proximity of the ISIS, and about the fate of the 1.5 million Syrian refugees now living in the Lebanese territory. ‘The war in the neighboring Syria is having deep impact on tiny Lebanon’, they all admit… Who triggered this war is never addressed… The so-called international community is showing very little desire to rescue Lebanon from its deep and ongoing crises. In fact, several countries and organizations are constantly at Lebanon’s throat, accusing it of ‘human rights violations’ and of having a weak and ineffective government. What seems to irritate them the most though, is that Hezbollah (an organization that is placed by many Western countries and their allies in the Arab world on the “terrorist list”) is at least to some extent allowed to participate in running the country… ‘A similar devious scenario is unfolding today. Hezbollah is busy fighting ISIS in Syria; the Lebanese army, though well trained, is poorly armed. Arms deals are being cancelled, the UN and IMF, and, in fact, the world community of nations are not providing any assistance, and little Lebanon is gasping under the weight of a million plus Syrian refugees. It’s a perfect opportunity for ISIS, the proxy army of Israel and the west, to move in and Lebanon’s sovereignty be damned.’ ”

The Case of Soldier A – by Uri Avnery, zope.GushShalom.org – “On the basis of this experience I dare to assert: everybody who calls Soldier A a hero is insulting the hundreds of thousands of decent combat soldiers, who served in the Israeli army since then until now, and among them real heroes (like the four Moroccan-born soldiers who risked their lives and carried me to safety under fire when I was wounded.).. A hero is a soldier who risks his life to save a comrade or to carry out some other essential assignment. Somebody who shoots a wounded enemy is not a hero, and to call him so is an insult to all the decent soldiers who are trying to preserve their humanity under hard – sometimes impossible – circumstances… I am a pacifist. I detest war and violence. But I am not a simpleton. I know that every country needs an army, not only in times of war but also in times of peace… An army is a killing machine. But after the atrocious 30-year war in the 17th century, civilized mankind fixed limitations. In short, violence is allowed if it serves the purposes of the war, but is absolutely forbidden if it is used against helpless human beings, such as prisoners and the wounded… As some of us foresaw, nearly 50 years of occupation has corrupted our army in many ways. It is not the army in which I served. It is not an army I can be proud of. It resembles a colonial police force more than an army whose duty is to defend our state in a tumultuous neighborhood.”

B-52-Death_From_AboveFirst in 3 decades: US deploys B-52 bombers to Qatar to bomb ISIS – from RT.com – “American B-52 Stratofortress bombers have been sent for their first Middle East operational deployment since the 1991 Gulf War 26 years ago. The aircraft are flying from Qatar to bomb Islamic State targets… An undisclosed number of B-52s have arrived at the Al Udeid Air Base on Sunday, the US Air Force said… ‘The B-52 will provide the coalition continued precision and deliver desired airpower effects,’ Lt. Gen. Charles Q. Brown Jr., commander, US Air Forces Central Command said in the statement.”

EU envoy refuses to condemn Israeli threats against BDS activists – by Ali Abunimah, ElectronicIntifada.org – “Ambassador Lars Faaborg-Andersen, who heads the EU diplomatic mission to Israel, was responding to questions about the threats made by Israeli intelligence minister Yisrael Katz and other top officials against activists and leaders in the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement… Faaborg-Andersen wrote to The Electronic Intifada that he “will not enter into a discussion about the interpretation of Minister Katz’s comment or the comments of any other speakers” at the “Stop the Boycott” conference held in Jerusalem on 28 March… While refusing to condemn the Israeli threats, the EU’s Ambassador Faaborg-Andersen did nevertheless acknowledge the free speech rights of the BDS movement… ‘The EU does believe that Palestinian human rights defenders and others have a right to advocate for international action to secure human rights,’ the diplomat wrote… He reiterated however that ‘it is a longstanding EU position that boycotts are unhelpful and close off channels of communication.’.. During his own address to the conference, Faaborg-Andersen said that goods from Israeli settlements built on occupied Palestinian land in violation of international law and human rights obligations are “welcome” in European markets, even though they would not enjoy the same trade privileges as other Israeli goods… Barghouti sees the presence of international officials like Faaborg-Andersen and his American counterpart at the conference as a form of complicity… ‘By not only participating in this Israeli fest of hate and violent threats against a nonviolent human rights movement and its main activists, but also keeping silent about these threats, the US administration and the EU have effectively given a tacit green light to Israel to harm us,’ Barghouti said… But in the face of mounting intimidation and the latest high-profile threats, Omar Barghouti says the international Palestine solidarity movement should only step up its efforts… ‘The most effective response is to intensify academic, cultural, economic and military boycott, divestment and eventually sanctions campaigns against Israel’s pariah regime and its complicit institutions,’ Barghouti said… ‘No mafia-like threat from anyone will thwart us from advocating for freedom, justice and equality for the entire Palestinian people, in our homeland and in exile,’ he added.”

Vaxxed: How did they threaten Robert De Niro? – by Jon Rappoport, JonRappoport.wordpress.com – “Okay. So here is the sequence… One, De Niro, who has an autistic child, decides to screen Vaxxed at his Tribeca Festival. It’s a film that reveals lies and crimes, and shows there is a causative connection between vaccines and autism… Two, pressure is applied to De Niro, so he meets with Florida Congressman Bill Posey, who lets him know the film is right on target. Posey knows, because he and his team have many pages of documents from CDC researcher, William Thompson, who blew the whistle on vaccine-autism fraud in 2014… Three, De Niro decides he’ll not only screen the film, he’ll introduce it himself, live, onstage… Four, out of the shadows emerge people who put the screws to De Niro. What do they tell him? His career in film will end? His annual Tribeca Film Festival will go down the toilet? The medical treatment his autistic child is receiving will be cut off? He and family are now “not safe?”.. Five, De Niro backs away and cancels the showing of Vaxxed… He’s been taught a lesson. Don’t go up against the medical cartel. Keep your mouth shut. Suffer in silence.

Digital Ventriloquism (w/Video) – by Alfred Adask, Adask.wordpress.com – “I suspect that, over the next 5 to 20 years, much of America’s energy will be spent trying to discover what’s real, what’s fraudulent, how to verify the information we’ve encountered and learning who can we trust… Our trust in news reporting has been falling for some time. Even so, we’ve still mostly taken it for granted that we can trust our news images. That presumption is now dying… How long before we have a President who doesn’t need a teleprompter to find the words the public wants to hear but instead relies on a digitized “ghost speaker” to say those words and make the President appear to say them? In fact, how long before we elect a President who doesn’t actually exist, except as an idealized digital image? (For that matter, has anyone ever actually seen Obama?)”

Tombstone-4-The-DonaldA tombstone for Donald Trump sprouts up in Central Park – by Marcus Gilmer, Mashable.com – “New Yorkers awoke on Easter Sunday to find that the only thing that had risen in Central Park was a mysterious tombstone for GOP presidential candidate and New York real estate magnate Donald Trump… While the tombstone, whose epitaph reads, “Made America Hate Again,” sports Trump’s birth year of 1946, it leaves his date of death open… Gothamist reports the would-be tomb was found in Central Park near Sheep’s Meadow.”

BRICS Under Attack: The Empire Strikes Back In Brazil – by Eric Draitser, MintPressNews.com – “BRICS countries account for 46 percent of the world’s population – over 3 billion people, as of 2015 – making it the single largest bloc in terms of human capacity among global alliances. The scope of BRICS, combined with its increasing assertiveness as an economic power unto itself, has undoubtedly ruffled a few feathers in Washington and elsewhere in the West… It should come as no surprise that major moves have been taken in the last 12 to 24 months to undermine each BRICS member nation and destabilize them through political and economic means. And it is no coincidence that those leaders shown smiling and shaking hands at recent BRICS summits are now either the targets of destabilization efforts and subversion – as in the cases of Brazil, Russia, China and South Africa – or are a target of a military and political charm offensive, as in the case of India. In each case, the United States and its allies benefit significantly from the latest developments.”

Human Experimentation Rampant in the United States – by Janet Phelan, Journal-NEO.org – “A similar playbook was used against Melissa Diegel, an Arizona mother of two daughters also diagnosed with a rare mitochondrial disease. Diegel has now lost her parental rights after she questioned the treatment plan for her daughters, which was put into place by Phoenix Children’s Hospital and Translational Genomics Research Institute… In court proceedings fraught with secrecy, removal of witnesses from the courtroom, sealed records and attempts to cast Diegel as someone who had “overmedicalized” her two daughters, Judge Kristin Hoffman severed all parental rights of Melissa Diegel and ordered the two girls to be put up for adoption… As in the case of Justina Pelletier, where her parents were deemed unfit for following the recommendations of the primary physician and not honoring the diagnosis of a new doctor, the Diegel case reveals efforts by Child Protective Services to demonize Melissa Diegel for following one doctor’s recommendations for treatment for her two daughters, rather than following the recommendations of another doctor… Melissa Diegel states that Hanna and Kayla were enrolled in TGen drug trials… TGen may also be involved in nonconsensual human experimentation. This reporter has uncovered documentation that the Institute maintains agreements with Phoenix Children’s Hospital to refer sick children to the Institute. According to a grant proposal from TGen researcher Dr. Justin Hunter, “Dr. Saunder Bernes, senior pediatric neurologist at Phoenix Children’s Hospital (PCH), has agreed to refer Arizona residents with NMD for these studies (see attached letter of support).” The grant was awarded to Dr. Hunter on October 23, 2014… As at least two sick children, Hanna and Kayla Diegel, were “referred” to TGen with disastrous results for their family unit, one might question whether or not TGen’s research programs regularly result in terminating family rights.”

Bail-In-GimmeNew Legislation Permits Authorities to Freeze Accounts and Use Them For Bail-ins – from GovtSlaves.info – “In other words… any liability at the bank is in danger of being written-down should the bank fail. And guess what? Deposits are considered liabilities according to US Banking Law and depositors are creditors… So… if a large bank fails in the US, your deposits at this bank would either be “written-down” (read: disappear) or converted into equity or stock shares in the company. And once they are converted to equity you are a shareholder not a depositor… so you are no longer insured by the FDIC… So if the bank then fails (meaning its shares fall)… so does your deposit… Let’s run through this: Let’s say ABC bank fails in the US. ABC bank is too big for the FDIC to make hold. So… 1) The FDIC takes over the bank… 2) The bank’s managers are forced out… 3) The bank’s debts and liabilities are converted into equity or the bank’s stock. And yes, your deposits are considered a “liability” for the bank… 4) Whatever happens to the bank’s stock, affects your wealth. If the bank’s stock falls at this point because everyone has figured out the bank is in major trouble… your wealth falls to… Let’s say you have $1,000,000 in deposits at financial institutions ABC. When ABC fails, your deposits are converted into $1,000,000 worth of ABC’s stock (let’s say you get 1,000,000 shares valued at $1 each for $1,000,000)… Now let’s say ABC’s shares fall in value from $1.00 to $0.50… You just lost $500,000 of your wealth.”

Vaccines contain DNA fragments from aborted human fetal cells and viruses that could cause both autism and cancer – by Ethan A. Huff, NaturalNews.com – “The genetic material from which many viral vaccines are produced appears to be a trigger of both autism and cancer, according to shocking research compiled by a renowned molecular and cellular physiologist from Stanford University in California… Dr. Theresa Deisher, Ph.D., who was the first person to discover adult cardiac-derived stem cells, found that residual cellular DNA from aborted babies demonstrates both oncogenic and infectious characteristics in vaccines… Aborted human fetal tissue, it turns out, has long been used in the production of vaccines, despite the fact that traces of DNA from this tissue can persist in the final product. The consequences of this, says Dr. Deisher, can include both genetic damage and markers of autism.”

Assad-‘Erdogans_army_of_terrorists-RTAssad says ‘Erdogan’s army of terrorists’ fighting in Syria – from RT.com – “Turkey’s direct support for terrorists fighting in Syria makes them President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s own army, Syrian President Bashar Assad said in an exclusive interview with Sputnik, adding that his country is ready to counter the aggression… Turkey, as well as Saudi Arabia, have ‘crossed all possible red lines, possibly from the first weeks of the Syrian war,’ Assad said… ‘Today, the war against Erdogan and against Saudi Arabia is a war against terrorists. The Turkish army, which is not even Turkish, is Erdogan’s army that is fighting today in Syria,’ he added… Everything that Ankara and Riyadh ‘have done from the very beginning can be considered aggression. Aggression in a political sense or in a military sense – providing terrorists with arms – or direct aggression with the use of artillery, and other military violations,’ he stressed.”

Al Gore Launches Coalition of Attorneys General to Assail Climate Deniers for ‘Violating the Law’ – by Tiffany Gabbay, TruthRevolt.org – ” ‘According to the best available evidence, deceiving the American people, communicating in a fraudulent way … about the reality of the climate crisis and the dangers that it poses to all of us and committing fraud in their communications about the viability of renewable energy and efficiency and energy storage …In the opinion of many who have looked at this pattern of misbehavior and what certainly looks like fraud, they are violating the law.’ (Al Gore, speaking like the dangerous Technocrat he is)… New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman seems to be heading up the effort. During a press conference about the new climate task force, AG Schneiderman said that ‘everyone from President Obama on down is under relentless assault from well-funded, highly aggressive and morally vacant forces that are trying to block every step by the federal government to stop meaningful action.’

COP21-BOBParis set a benchmark in the battle against climate change. What now? – from TheConversation.com – “The Paris Agreement fulfilled the promise, from the 2011 Durban Climate Change Conference, of a regime applicable to all under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. The world has finally moved beyond a divide into two groups, the developed and developing countries. Bitter battles were often fought along these lines. Paris reflects differentiation, acknowledging that the world is not the same. But it acknowledges the need to move beyond old divisions and to take action. It expresses differences more subtly, notably on mitigation and finance… The Paris Agreement encodes a bottom-up approach. If the Kyoto Protocol’s targets were top-down, a defining feature of the Paris Agreement is that nationally determined contributions will add up to the global response. Proposals to take global emissions budgets and divide them across countries were rejected. Adaptation, loss and damage are much more prominent in the Paris Agreement than in previous climate agreements.”

S&P500-1990-now-20dayMovAverageMarket Meltdown Already Underway-Gregory Mannarino – by Greg Hunter, USAWatchdog.com – “Trader/analyst Gregory Mannarino says forget about the recent market rally, the markets “have nowhere to go but down.” Mannarino explains, ‘According to the charts, something big has already begun. This is not a ‘maybe this will happen,’ this has already started. The market averages have gained over the past few weeks, but we had an abysmal start to the year. The only reason we have seen this stock market rally is on speculation of crude oil. They will not allow crude oil to drop anymore because it is a currency. There are too many things linked to it. . . . Nothing has changed fundamentally. What does this mean? This has been a fool’s rally.’.. Mannarino also says, ‘The world powers are trying to get together to stop this. It can’t be stopped. They have inflated this bubble in debt, and that is the greatest threat to humankind. . . . People can’t say when is the crash coming? It’s already here. It’s already begun.’ ”

Chatham House Pushes ‘Permanent Confrontation’ Against Russia – from LarouchPub.com – “The Royal “We” are most unhappy with the reality that Russia has asserted itself against the permanent war/permanent chaos policy of the British Empire. The latest expression of this is a new report from Chatham House—officially known as the Royal Institute of International Affairs (RIIA)—by scribbler Keir Giles, released on March 21. According to the summary posted on the Chatham House website, Giles asserts that since Russia’s interests are incompatible with those of the West, we should look forward to permanent confrontation with Russia… Giles concludes: ‘Instead they are examples of Russia implementing its long-standing intent to challenge the West now that it feels strong enough to do so. For Western governments and leaders, an essential first step towards more successful management of the relationship with Moscow would be to recognize that the West’s values and strategic interests and those of Russia are fundamentally incompatible.’ ”

April 19: Temple Of Baal In New York Is Going Up On Significant Day – by Michael Snyder, ProphecyNewsWatch.com – “Is it just a coincidence that reproductions of the arch that stood in front of the Temple of Baal in Palmyra, Syria are going up in New York and London on the precise day when the Feast of Moloch is celebrated and when the Blood Sacrifice to the Beast begins? The organization in charge of this “cultural project” is the Institute for Digital Archaeology. The following comes directly from their website: ‘On April 19, 2016, in cooperation with national and international cultural heritage preservation organizations, and in conjunction with World Heritage Week 2016, the Institute for Digital Archaeology will install a monumental scale reconstruction of Palmyras Triumphal Arch on Trafalgar Square. Through this project and others like it scheduled throughout 2016 in cities both inside and outside the Middle East the IDA seeks to provide an optimistic and constructive response to the ongoing threats to history and heritage that have captured headlines over the past year. Our aim is to highlight the potential for the triumph of human ingenuity over violence by offering innovative, technology-driven options for the stewardship of objects and architecture from our shared past.’ ” – Ooo, this is making me feel all warm n’ fuzzy…

The Rothschilds and the Geoengineering Empire – by Dane Wigington and BusinessWire.com, TheEventChronicle.com – “The scope and scale of the global spraying of our skies can hardly be comprehended. SAG (stratospheric aerosol geoengineering) and SRM (solar radiation management), the massive web of supporting structures for these programs is mind bending. What is even more difficult to understand is how all of this happens in plain sight, and almost none seem to connect the dots… E.L. Rothschild LLC, a private investment company led by Chairman Sir Evelyn de Rothschild and CEO Lynn Forester de Rothschild, today announced the signing of a definitive agreement to acquire a 70% interest in Weather Central, LP (www.wxc.com). The world’s leading provider of interactive weather graphics and data services for television, web, and mobile, Weather Central’s highly accurate and personalized forecasting offers businesses and consumers a truly unique suite of science-driven weather information products. The company will continue to operate under CEO and founder, Terry Kelly, as well as current management. Financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.”

Palestinians_running_by_WallGoing nowhere: Israel bars over 100 Gaza athletes from running in Palestinian marathon – from RT.com – “More than 100 Gaza athletes were unable to participate in the fourth annual Palestine Marathon in Bethlehem, after Israel refused to give them permits to exit the blockaded Gaza Strip. The organizer condemned the action as a “blatant violation” of international laws on freedom of movement… Among the 103 athletes barred was star runner Nader Masri, who represented Palestine at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. Joining him on the banned list were members of the campaign group Right to Movement and Right to Play – the organizing body behind the event, together with the Palestine Olympic Committee… It is the third time such a situation has happened, according to Palestinian news agency WAFA. In the first and second marathons in 2013 and 2014, Israel refused to grant the athletes permission to join the sporting event. In 2015 it only allowed a very small number of Palestinians to participate.”

New Mexico Bans Forced Psychiatric Drugging of Children – by Alex Newman, TheNewAmerican.com – “Psych meds for kids at gunpoint will no longer be tolerated, at least in one state. A powerful new law to protect children from coercive psychiatric screening and drugging was approved last year by the state of New Mexico. And now, advocates hope to provide similar protections for kids, families and parental rights across the remaining 49 states. As Big Pharma and the Obama administration push hard to unconstitutionally expand mandatory “mental health” screening, tracking, and treatment for children nationwide, health-freedom supporters say state laws such as New Mexico’s could offer much-needed protection in the years ahead. And progress is already being made.”

Vaccines have a dangerously long history with depopulation schemes – by Amy Goodrich, NaturalNews.com – “In the 1990s the UN’s WHO launched a campaign to vaccinate women in Nicaragua, Mexico and the Philippines between the ages of 15 and 45, to protect them against Tetanus (or Lockjaw). Strangely enough, the vaccine was not given to boys or men who are more prone to get wounds from cuts and rusty nails… The Comite Pro Vida de Mexico, a Roman Catholic lay organization, became suspicious and tested some of the vaccines. They came to the horrible conclusion that women of childbearing age were being inoculated with hCG-laced vaccines, making them incapable of maintaining pregnancy… In 2004, a UNICEF campaign to vaccinate Nigerians with an oral polio vaccine also appeared to serve another agenda… Dr. Haruna Kaita, a pharmaceutical scientist and Dean of the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences of Ahmadu Bello University in Zaria, analyzed some samples and found the vaccine to be harmful and toxic with direct effects on the human reproductive system… These are not the only examples, and it definitely raises questions regarding more recent outbreaks, such as the Ebola and Zika virus crises.”

Ducey-Ariz_GovNew Law Allows Unlimited Amounts of Secret Money Into Elections – by Justin Gardner, ActivistPost.com – “The biggest beneficiary of the Citizens United case appears to be Hillary Clinton, which is ironic considering that the subject of that case was a film critical of Clinton. She has long been a soldier for corporate interests, from propelling Wal-Mart to enormous proportions during the 1990s to advancing the interests of the military-industrial complex and Big Pharma… States are now following suit in selling democracy to the highest bidder. On Tuesday, the Arizona house voted 31-27 to allow unlimited amounts of dark money to go into elections, and the bill will be signed into law by Governor Doug Ducey. The governor and Secretary of State Michele Reagan, as well as the representatives who voted for the bill, are themselves major beneficiaries of millions in secret cash from corporate interests. Rep. J.D. Mesnard did not even try to hide the fact that anonymous special interests are more important than the voting public, saying, ‘I think transparency is generally a good principle, but it is not the overarching principle.’.. Gov. Ducey enjoyed $3.5 million in dark money during the 2014 election, while $1.3 million was spent to buy legislators that are now tearing down the remaining barrier to unlimited dark money.”

Targeting America: The FBI, COINTELPRO, and Project Pedophile – In today’s COINTEL Program, one of the FBI’s favorite soft kill tactics is to label targeted individuals as pedophiles, rapists, sexual deviants or “mentally unstable” in order to isolate and destroy them – by XKeyscore, Intellihub.com – “The goal of today’s COINTELPRO is in part based on what are referred to as the 5 D’s by the United Kingdom’s General Communications Headquarters (GCHQ). The 5 D’s are Deny, Deceive, Disrupt, Degrade, and inevitably Destroy the target… Well who are the targets one might logically ask next?.. If one looks at potential threats through the eyes of the federal government, they will soon discover that NRA members, returning veterans, activists, whistle-blowers, watch-dog bloggers, and investigative journalists are lumped in with the likes of al Qaeda and ISIS operatives. In many cases these “domestic threats” are considered to be more of a risk than actual terrorists… Why one may ask?.. Well, because there are tens of thousands more innocent Americans than there are real terrorists, it keeps federal budgets plump and fluffy, whilst simultaneously allowing for asset seizure under (false) premises. Additionally, it appears as though Americans with a strong moral compass are a threat to the status quo, to the corrupt power structure.”

Vax-damaged-childInfant Paralyzed and Brain-Damaged After 6-Month Vaccinations, Doctors Threatened Parents to Further Vaccinate Their Daughter – from VacTruth.com – “At the tender young age of six months old, her daughter Cerenity was given eight vaccine doses that nearly ended her life. Cerenity went from being a completely healthy baby before receiving those vaccines to a little girl who now suffers from paralysis and brain damage… Cerenity’s neurologist told her parents they didn’t have a good enough reason to stop vaccinating her, despite the fact that the vaccines she received are known to cause these serious reactions. Multiple doctors have insisted the vaccines had nothing to do with her injuries… At a subsequent well child visit, the doctor then lied to the parents and injected Cerenity with numerous vaccines her parents didn’t knowingly consent for, against their wishes, leaving their child in worse condition… Cerenity now suffers more than she already had and her doctor still insists she keep receiving more vaccines, threatening the parents that if they don’t continue getting her vaccinated, they will be dismissed from the practice.”

The War Today, April 3, 2016 – by Gordon Duff, VeteransToday.com – (a small portion of this extensive report on Syria and Iraq): “On Tuesday, Nineveh Province Operations Commander Brigadier General Najm al-Jabouri announced that the ISIL positions in Mosul were under the army’s heavy fire, underlining that his forces were waiting for an order to launch the final battle…’“The Central and Southern parts of Mosul which host the ISIL commanders’ strongholds are under artillery fire and airstrikes,’ Jabouri told FNA… He said that the Iraqi army and popular forces were all prepared for their commanders’ order to launch a decisive battle against the ISIL in Mosul… A source in Iraq’s Ministry of Interior announced last Friday that the Iraqi Air Force’s planes dropped thousands of leaflets on the city of Mosul (405 km North of Baghdad), calling on the residents to be prepared for the liberation operation of the city by the Iraqi army… The source said in a statement that ‘today the Iraqi Air Force planes dropped thousands of leaflets on Tahrir neighborhood, as well as different parts in the left side of Mosul’… The source, who asked anonymity, added, ‘The leaflets called the citizens to be prepared for the expulsion of ISIL terrorist members.’ ”

Paris Attacks Damage Control: New Would-be Shooter Suddenly “Captured” Minority Report Style – by Bernie Suarez, ActivistPost.com – “So let’s face it, the gap between Hollywood fantasy and mainstream media is now mostly gone. The two ideas have merged. Every piece of news-related “evidence” is now a fully controlled scene with carefully edited video clips and soundbites. Because he is charged with the broad paintbrush of “terrorism”, like the individuals at Guantanamo Bay prison, we’ll never know what exactly the accused man, Salah Abdeslam, is guilty of, if anything, who manipulated the evidence, and who acted as final judge… And for anyone who is caught in the middle of the game and finds themselves to be a pawn in a much larger game, to these people there is little hope of escape from political prosecution as many of the Guantanamo prisoners have learned all these years. Unfortunately for the newly accused Salah Abdeslam, the supposed “top suspect” in 2015’s Paris shooting, historically speaking, political patsies have not fared well. Like the Dzhokhar Tsarnaevs of the world, Abdeslam will have no voice, no leverage and no influence on the final outcome of what will happen to him because whether he realizes it or not he is nothing more than a patsy in a much bigger story being told. What story is that?

HEALTH FREEDOM ALERT: The FDA just outlawed CBDs and hemp oil extracts by claiming all plant molecules now belong exclusively to Big Pharma – by Mike Adams, NaturalNews.com – “The FDA just criminalized one of the most miraculous healing medicines in the world by handing it over to Big Pharma… In other words, the FDA just handed Big Pharma an absolute monopoly over CBDs (hemp oil extract) by ridiculously claiming such natural products are “adulterated” with molecules (CBDs) that the FDA says might one day become a drug… “Drugs,” according to the FDA, are substances that are proven to treat, prevent or cure a disease, and thus the FDA’s own logic admits that CBDs must be able to treat, prevent or cure diseases, otherwise they would be useless as “drugs”… But when a dietary supplement company makes the same claim, they are hit with aggressive warning letters from the FDA, threatening to shut them down, confiscate their products and seek criminal prosecution of the company executives… This is how the FDA can instantly criminalize any vitamin or plant extract… Do you see how this twisted, corrupt regulatory tactic can allow the FDA to instantly criminalize any dietary supplement, vitamin, herb or plant extract?”

Nikolai_PatrushevRussian security chief warns of Kiev’s attempts to destabilize Crimea – by Jim W. Dean, VeteransToday.com – “The head of Russia’s Security Council has said that the threat of tensions in the Crimean Republic remains due to the plans of Ukrainian authorities to use social and ethnic agenda in sowing dissent…

‘The threat of destabilization of the social and political situation in the Crimean Federal District remains urgent. It is not a secret that the Kiev regime is making plans to destabilize the situation in Crimea, including the plans to use the ethnic factor,’ Nikolai Patrushev said at a Security Council session in Yalta, Crimea, on Monday… He added that Russian special services were aware of Ukrainian authorities actions conducted near the Russian border… ‘On the Ukrainian side they are creating extremist nationalist and paramilitary groups. They also maintain the blockade aimed at preventing energy, water and food supplies to the peninsula,’ Patrushev stated… The anti-Russian plans were also executed at the international level, he added… ‘Kiev is building its relations with Turkey’s political leaders on the anti-Russian foundation. The objective of all of their activities is creating a hotspot of civil instability,’ RIA Novosti quoted Patrushev as saying.”

The FBI Wants Teachers To Go Stasi On American Kids – by Lucy Steigerwald, Original.AntiWar.com – “The idea that the FBI, or even public school teachers, have the ability to tell the difference between peaceful radicalism, curiosity, research or even meaningless, shock-value teenage rebellion is fundamentally absurd; additionally absurd in a post-Columbine, zero-tolerance America. The sophomore of 2000 was getting hauled into to the principal’s office, or being detained by the school resource officer for writing a short story where someone uses a gun. The sophomore of 2016 will be eyed with suspicion if they hug a tree, object to the war on terror, or happen to be a Muslim. This plan to spy on adolescents may be new, but it’s still the same sort of creeping, militarized nonsense from a law enforcement community that has been working its feelers into schools more and more since Columbine. But it’s something that needs to be pushed back against before public school and prison truly become as indistinguishable as law enforcement wants. Then we’ll be safe, and so will the kids.”

Hell_Cannon-BombsBest story on Syria this week: Aleppo’s Black Box is Found Under the Rubble of Propaganda – by Vanessa Beeley, 21stCenturyWire.com – “Perhaps more than any other region in Syria, Aleppo has been the hub of the NATO/US/Gulf media and NGO propaganda, intent on demonization of the Syrian Government and Syrian Arab Army. White Helmet central, Aleppo has been the concealed nest of Al Nusra operatives, overt or covert, disguised as the ‘Syria Civil Defence’, white helmeted “saviours of all Humanity” provided the Humanity has no associations with the Syrian Government, Shia, Kurdish or Christian factions in or surrounding Aleppo… Since the Syrian Arab Army has advanced deeper into Al Nusra and ISIS territory uprooting the terrorist cells, the truth has revealed itself by degrees.”

America’s Fake War Against ISIS Grinds On – by Tony Cartalucci, ActivistPost.com – “It is unlikely General Votel or Lieutenant General Thomas do not know how to identify the source of an enemy’s fighting capacity or how to effectively cut it off. Indeed, they know precisely how to defeat ISIS, but anyone can still watch the hearing – archived online on the US government’s own website for all to see – and understand that the goal is not to fight and defeat ISIS – it is to reorder the region in such a manner as to maintain US influence and protect US “interests” across it… Fighting ISIS is but a pretext to remain involved in Syria, Iraq, and now Libya and Afghanistan. Both the senators of the committee and the two generals present all agreed that Nigeria, Somalia, and perhaps nations beyond would also see ISIS gaining footholds within their borders giving the US a free hand to pursue them in what they called “transregional” operations.” (emph. added)

al-SadrMuqtada al-Sadr Calls for New Iraqi Government Members – by Edward Yeranian, VOANews.com – “Thousands of supporters of Iraqi Shi’ite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr held what they billed as a “joint” Sunni-Shi’ite prayer service Friday outside the main entrances to the government-controlled “Green Zone.” Sadr has given Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi a Saturday deadline to carry out governmental “reform” and install a new Cabinet composed of technocrats instead of political loyalists.” (emph. added)

Possible Signs Of False Flag In Brussels Now Emerging – by Brandon Turbeville, ActivistPost.com – “Lending credence to those who suggest that the Brussels attacks were false flags (meaning directed, orchestrated, or allowed by Western intelligence agencies), it is being reported that, yet again, the perpetrators were known to police and security services prior to the attack. This suggests a number of possibilities in the false flag vein such as: 1. That the security services knew an attack was being planned and allowed it to continue. 2. That the intelligence agencies organized the attack from the very beginning…. Building a case for the false flag argument sees a number of points to be made that, while not conclusively proving that such is the case, they do provide a good reason to question the official narrative.”

Major Propaganda Alert!Breaking/Exclusive: Erdogan to Belgium, Screw you, we will do it again! – by Gordon Duff, VeteransToday.com – “Damascus VT/ Kurdish Popular Forces serving in Syria today captured a senior Turkish intelligence official who has, under “enhanced interrogation” implicated President Erdogan… VT was given access to recorded confessions which detailed the role of the MIT in the Brussels explosions along with plans for more attacks across Europe… The “suspect” has confessed his role in planning the Brussels attack in coordination with ISIS at Raqqah… Intelligence that led to the capture was supplied by a Russian signal intercept. We are told that no Russians were involved in the capture but that a Spetsnaz team may have been available for support… Turkish intelligence runs an operational planning center in an underground complex in Raqqah, according to our unwilling informant. The center, built under an athletic facility, contains stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons including sarin gas, swine flu and tons of materials for producing mustard and chlorine gas… The US hit the center in October 2014 in coordination with a Syrian “Tiger” unit which led to the capture of Qatari, Saudi and Turkish officers in one of less than a half dozen highly secret joint operations… The interrogation notes we received thus far from European Department for Security and information (DESI) Secretary General DR Haissam Bou Said indicted (sic – “indicated”) that Turkish intelligence MIT was behind the horrific twin suicide bombings and that Turkish terror cells across Europe had been planted years ago in coordination with an organized crime infrastructure long involved in human trafficking, narcotics and working with Israeli and Saudi groups staging false flag terror attacks… Erdogan, according to our source, has been channeling MIT trained terror cells hidden within the carefully orchestrated influx of refugees, directing them to “berths” within the Turkish crime communities long established in Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands.” above by Nahed al Husaini, Veterans Today Bureau Chief (emph. added)

Former Israeli Intel Operatives Run Security at Brussels Airport – from SOTT.net – “The aviation and general security services firm ICTS handles security operations at Brussels airport, the scene of a bomb attack yesterday morning… ICTS was established in 1982 by former members of Shin Bet, Israel’s internal security agency and El Al airline security agents, and has a major presence around the world in airport security including operations in the Netherlands, Germany, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Japan and Russia. ICTS uses the security system employed in Israel, whereby passengers are profiled to assess the degree to which they pose a potential threat on the basis of a number of indicators, including age, name, origin and behavior during questioning… Chairman of the Supervisory Board at ICTS is Menachem J. Atzmon. Atzmon is a former Likud party member who was indicted and convicted in 1996 in a fraud and embezzlement case relating to the misappropriation of funds raised by charities. Atzmon is also the CEO of the port authority of Rostock in Germany… ICTS also somehow missed several of the alleged 9/11 hijackers who allegedly flew out of Boston’s Logan airport on September 11th 2001. ICTS also handled security for London’s bus network during the July 7, 2005, ‘suicide’ bomb attacks. In fact, two of its subsidiaries, ICTS UK and ICTS Europe Systems, are based at Tavistock House, Tavistock Square in London, scene of the London Stagecoach bus bombing that day.” (emph. added)

Porter_Ranch-Still_SickThis Is What’s Happening to People Who Live near the Worst Gas Leak in US History – by Carey Wedler, ActivistPost.com – “Neither SoCalGas, which owns the Aliso Canyon facility, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, nor any other government agency has provided a concrete explanation for these continued symptoms. In fact, one of Los Angeles County’s top medical officials recently told local physicians to refrain from performing tests to determine what is causing the symptoms. Late last week, preliminary lab tests from an independent UCLA study found evidence of benzene, a carcinogen, in at least two Porter Ranch homes. Benzene was reported to have been released in the 100 metric tons of methane that spewed into the Los Angeles basin for four months — a fact SoCalGas previously attempted to downplay and withhold.”

Disney Threatens To Stop Shooting In Georgia If State Passes Religious Freedom Law – by Brian Anderson, DownTrend.com – “On March 16, the Georgia legislature passed The Free Exercise Protection Act. Basically the law says that people with a religious conviction cannot be forced to participate in homosexual activities they object to. For example, an official can decide to not perform a gay marriage ceremony if he or she has a religious opposition to it. Or a baker doesn’t have to make a cake for a gay wedding for the same reason… What the law doesn’t do is allow people to discriminate against gay people in employment, housing, education, etc…All it does is keep people from being bullied into accepting gay marriage if their religion says it’s wrong. The bill is sitting on Georgia Governor Nathan Deal’s desk awaiting his signature. He has until May 3 to sign or veto it… The LA Times reports that Disney doesn’t care so much about people’s religious freedom, but they are concerned that gay people might be offended, so they are threatening a boycott… ‘Disney and Marvel are inclusive companies, and although we have had great experiences filming in Georgia, we will plan to take our business elsewhere should any legislation allowing discriminatory practices be signed into state law,’ said a Disney spokesman.”

One Year of Bloodshed in Yemen: US and UK are Accomplices in Saudi Coalition War Crimes – by Vanessa Beeley, 21stCenturyWire.com – “On the 26th March 2015, one year ago today, the Saudi led coalition launched its Operation Decisive Storm against the Yemeni people. One year on, the intensity of the attacks has not subsided and the wholesale slaughter of civilians and deliberate targeting of civilian infrastructure continues unabated. Aided and abetted primarily by the US and the UK, the Saudi regime is destroying Yemen’s cultural heritage, bombing masjids, schools, hospitals, market places, wedding parties, fishing boats, telecommunication centres, electrical power plants, factories, agricultural lands and livestock… The Saudi regime is doing everything in its power to ensure the Yemeni people have no means of survival or sustenance under a crippling blockade that has been in place since the inception of the war of aggression against Yemen. A blockade that is “lamented, decried and condemned” by an international community that hides behind familiar rhetoric while ensuring the flow of arms continues unhindered into Saudi weapons depots.”

Brussels_BombersBRUSSELS TERRORDROME: Masterminds, Fake CCTV Footage, EU Funded Terror Drills & Prior Knowledge – by Shawn Helton, 21stCenturyWire.com – “All across Europe ‘terror’ threat levels have been raised for maximum impact, with fear induced talking points led by US and UK leadership promising to put an end to this latest set of terror attacks coming out of Brussels… While many political leaders and media operatives continue to bang the drums of security over so-called terror ‘sleeper cells’ hiding in a nation near you – none of them will acknowledge the historical fact that they themselves have also helped to harbor, grow, foment and radicalize individuals through counter-terrorism operations for decades… Allied nations of course will bring up the fact that Western intelligence regularly uses double agents and informants under the banner of security to obfuscate the true intentions of such programs… The media is already preempting the next shockwave of terror, even though every security agency across Europe is on high alert.”

Putin-Mission_AccomplishedPutin Orders Withdrawal of Russian Military from Syria, says ‘Objectives Achieved’ – from 21stCenturyWire.com – “To control the observation of ceasefire agreements in the region, Moscow will keep its Khmeimim airbase in Latakia province and a base at the port of Tartous, Putin said… At Moscow’s initiative, a phone conversation between Vladimir Putin and Syria’s President Bashar Assad was held on Monday evening, the Kremlin reported… The two leaders agreed that the actions of Russia’s Air Force in Syria have allowed them to “profoundly reverse the situation” in connection to fighting terrorists in the region, having ‘disorganized militants’ infrastructure and inflicted fundamental damage upon them.’.. Bashar Assad has recognized the “professionalism, courage and heroism” of Russian Army soldiers and officers, who have taken part in the military action, thanking Russia not only for extensive help in the fight against terrorism, but also for providing humanitarian aid and assistance to the Syrian civilian population…”

Mario_Draghi-eDraghi’s Giant Giveaway; More Handouts for Wall Street – by Mike Whitney, Counterpunch.org – “Can Draghi’s latest monetary infusion reverse the trend?.. Temporarily, perhaps, but long term, no way. Keep in mind, earnings have been steadily declining for more than two quarters, which is why Draghi and his fellows have swung into action. The CBs are attempting to extend the business cycle in order to shore up flagging earnings and keep stocks airborne for a little while longer… But we’re getting ahead of ourselves. Ostensibly, Draghi’s plan to buy corporate bonds is an attempt to reduce financing costs for European companies… Why? Aren’t financing costs low already?.. Yes they are, extremely low. But, once again, we have to refer to the theory, and the theory states that if financing costs are reduced, then corporations will expand their operations, hire more workers, and invest in the future. That, in turn, will stimulate more growth and strengthen the recovery… The problem is, the theory is flawed. Corporations don’t expand their operations or hire more workers when demand is weak. And demand IS weak mainly because central banks have worked with their government counterparts to keep it weak by slashing deficits and intensifying austerity.”

Joao-and-DindimPenguin Travels 5,000 Miles Every Year to Visit Man Who Saved Him (w/photos) – from OneGreenPlanet.org – “When Joao Pereira de Souza, 71, found a starving penguin covered in oil on the rocks of an island village just outside of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, he knew the bird would die without help. The retired bricklayer and part-time fisherman took the bird home and cleaned his feathers of the sticky black residue for a week, feeding him a diet of fish until he was nursed back to health. Once the penguin, named Dindim was recovered, Souza released him into the sea, never expecting to see his feathered friend again. But Dindim astonishingly reappeared four months later to say hello to the man who saved him! That was four years ago, and the penguin has been visiting every year since.”

New Sophisticated Humanoid Robot Declares “I Will Destroy Humans” – by Nicholas West, ActivistPost.com – “It is important to note several things that Hanson mentions. Sophia first tells us that she would like to be “an ambassador” to humans, as well as to continue her evolution through formal education, studying art and eventually creating a business and having a family. Hanson explicitly states that Sophia will become as “conscious, creative, and capable as any human.” This statement is followed by a key mention of not having the rights of a human. This might seem absurd to the uninitiated, but this is a serious ethical discussion that has been taking place among “roboethicists.” This is all-but guaranteed to gain steam as robots are integrated in autonomous ways, whether it is on the battlefield, as self-driving vehicles (now programmed to sacrifice some humans over others), or certainly as they become visually and intelligently on par with human beings.”

Laser_Hood_BlastModern Warfare Just Changed Forever — Laser Weapons are Ready for Use — TODAY – by Matt Agorist, ActivistPost.com – “According to Defense News, that doesn’t mean that giant city-melting lasers are on their way. Right now, the weapons are limited to the 15-30 KW scale; going much further requires figuring out how to deal with atmospheric interference, an issue which becomes more complicated with weapons mounted on airborne systems… However, Lockheed said that making a larger laser is similar to building out computer servers — Once you figure out how to connect them all, you can add more power by adding another server. The same is true for the laser weapons: you add more power slots into the rack and increase its power… Just last year, the company held a demonstration at which they took out unmanned systems from over a mile away, melted a car engine, and sank a boat… While they have only mastered the 30 KW system, Lockheed Martin says they are on track to deliver a 60 KW laser for the Army by the end of the year.” (emph. added)

UN Seeking Full-Spectrum Biometric Dominance of the Human Race – by Phillip Schneider, WakingTimes.com – “Findbiometrics.com writes: ‘The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) is moving forward with its plans to use biometric technology to identify and track refugees, and has selected a vendor for the project. Accenture, an international technology services provider, has won out in the competitive tendering process and will oversee the implementation of the technology in a three-year contract… The UNHCR will use Accenture’s Biometric Identity Management System (BIMS) for the endeavor. BIMS can be used to collect facial, iris, and fingerprint biometric data, and will also be used to provide many refugees with their only form of official documentation. The system will work in conjunction with Accenture’s Unique Identity Service Platform (UISP) to send this information back to a central database in Geneva, allowing UNHCR offices all over the world to effectively coordinate with the central UNHCR authority in tracking refugees.’ ”

Subprime Auto Loans: the Next Shoe to Drop? – by Mike Whitney, Counterpunch.org – “By now you’re probably wondering how this whole subprime nightmare resurfaced just 8 years after Wall Street blew up the financial system? Wasn’t Dodd-Frank supposed to fix all that?.. Sure, it was, but the powerful auto lobby in Washington managed to carve out a special exemption for themselves that allows them to shrug off the new reforms and continue the same risky behavior as before. That’s why this auto-loan scam has morphed into a ginormous Hindenburg-like bubble that poses a looming threat to financial stability. It’s because the big money guys twisted a few arms on Capital Hill and got what they wanted. Money talks.”

Hillary-n- The Syrian ShoahHillary Clinton And The Syrian Shoah – by Gilad Atzmon, Gilad.co.uk – “Shockingly, in late 2015, after three years of disastrous Syrian civil war with hundreds of thousands of fatalities and millions of displaced people, Clinton, so it seems. still clung to the formula that Israel’s concerns with Iran should be fought on the expense of the Syrian people. In an email that US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton sent to an unknown account on 11/30/2015 Clinton wrote: ‘The best way to help Israel deal with Iran’s growing nuclear capability is to help the people of Syria overthrow the regime of Bashar Assad.’.. Israel is not the only one to blame for the Syrian shoah; Hilary Clinton shares some of the responsibility. I suggest that Ms. Clinton consider inviting at least a few Syrian refugees to settle in Clinton’s suburban home. Such a move would prove that she can be empathic, merciful and hopefully regretful.” (emph. added)

If global warming is real, then why does the NOAA’s own data show no warming for 58 years? – by Sarah Landers, NaturalNews.com – “In their press briefing, the NOAA included a graph of the last 37 years – but stated that they have a 58-year-long temperature record, their “evidence” of global warming. However, the earlier data that they conveniently missed off the graph shows as much pre-1979 cooling as post-1979 warming, according to Real Climate Science. In fact, it seems that the earth’s atmosphere has not warmed at all since the late 1950s… So, the NOAA’s own data actually shows that there has been no warming for the last 58 years, but they have tried to cover that up by only showing part of the graph… According to American Thinker, NASA are regularly stating that certain years are “the hottest on record” – but only have historical data dating to 1880. There has actually been a climate change trend dating back to before 1880, and predating any increases in carbon dioxide. In fact, it seems that NASA’s own scientists actually debunked global warming in a recent study that tracked infrared emissions from the earth’s upper atmosphere during and after a recent solar storm… Their study found that the vast majority of energy was reflected out into space rather than down to earth. This reveals a cooling effect that completely contradicts NASA’s own reports that greenhouse gases are the cause of global warming, with carbon dioxide and nitric oxide actually reflecting heating energy away from the Earth’s surface rather than absorbing it.”

Emma_Goldman-If_Voting-photo‘Vote All You Want, The Secret Government Won’t Change.’ – by Stuart Hooper, 21stCenturyWire.com – “What evidence exists for saying America has a double government? – GLENNON: I was curious why a president such as Barack Obama would embrace the very same national security and counterterrorism policies that he campaigned eloquently against. Why would that president continue those same policies in case after case after case?.. Why would policy makers hand over the national-security keys to unelected officials? – GLENNON: It hasn’t been a conscious decision. Members of Congress are generalists and need to defer to experts within the national security realm, as elsewhere. They are particularly concerned about being caught out on a limb having made a wrong judgment about national security and tend, therefore, to defer to experts, who tend to exaggerate threats. The courts similarly tend to defer to the expertise of the network that defines national security policy… Couldn’t Obama’s national-security decisions just result from the difference in vantage point between being a campaigner and being the commander-in-chief, responsible for 320 million lives? – GLENNON: There is an element of what you described. There is not only one explanation or one cause for the amazing continuity of American national security policy. But obviously there is something else going on when policy after policy after policy all continue virtually the same way that they were in the George W. Bush administration.”

Note: I’m ABSOLUTELY NOT promoting Dave’s article as being a clear reflection of the truth of this situation. HOWEVER, I do think it points to what’s going on with many Americans right now, in the midst of the surreal political landscape of 2016Does God Have His Hand On the Trump Miracle? – by Dave Hodges, TheCommonSenseShow.com – “Scientists from the prestigious Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute have determined that if just 10% of any given population holds to an unshakable idea, that the idea will become adopted by the majority of the country. However, the scientists who belong to the Social Cognitive Networks Academic Research Center (SCNARC) found that if the ideas are shared by less than 10% of the population, the idea will not progress and will eventually die out. The research was first published in a peer reviewed E Journal in an article entitled “Social consensus through the influence of committed minorities.”The finding has dramatic implications for those of us trying to wake up the sheep in this country. The SNARC scientists found that the 10% figure was applicable whether they were talking about the spread of innovations or to advance an ideal.”

Media’s Global Anti-Trump Coverage Proves the Matrix Is Real – TruthStreamMedia, 15min

Is There a US-Russia Grand Bargain in Syria? – by Pepe Escobar, InformationClearingHouse.info – “It’s spy thriller stuff; no one is talking. But there are indications Russia would not announce a partial withdrawal from Syria right before the Geneva negotiations ramp up unless a grand bargain with Washington had been struck… Some sort of bargain is in play, of which we still don’t know the details; that’s what the CIA itself is basically saying through their multiple US Think Tankland mouthpieces. And that’s the real meaning hidden under a carefully timed Barack Obama interview that, although inviting suspension of disbelief, reads like a major policy change document… Obama invests in proverbial whitewashing, now admitting US intel did not specifically identify the Bashar al-Assad government as responsible for the Ghouta chemical attack. And then there are nuggets, such as Ukraine seen as not a vital interest of the US – something that clashes head on with the Brzezinski doctrine. Or Saudi Arabia as freeloaders of US foreign policy – something that provoked a fierce response from former Osama bin Laden pal and Saudi intel supremo Prince Turki… Tradeoffs seem to be imminent. And that would imply a power shift has taken place above Obama — who is essentially a messenger, a paperboy. Still that does not mean that the bellicose agendas of both the Pentagon and the CIA are now contained.”

Roundup-Non-ToxicHow Glyphosate mimics our basic amino acid, and gets into our cells, tissues, chromosome and DNA – by Tony Mitra, Change.org – “A renowned biochemist and research scientist that has been studying Glyphosate, and other potentially harmful chemicals for a long time, he has four peer reviewed scientific papers already published, along with Dr. Stephanie Seneff, on how Glyphosate provides a pathway to various modern diseases… Now, Samsel has made a more fundamental finding on the chemical and is working on his fifth paper on it. And that finding, for the first time disclosed by anybody on earth, is that glyphosate is essentially an amino acid, but like no other naturally occurring one. And it tries to mimic one that is part of our biology… Some 21 amino acids are the basic building blocks of life on this planet as we understand it. Glycine is one of them, the simplest and most basic, and it performs a long chain of invaluable tasks in the biology of the living kingdom… Glyphosate mimics glycine.” (emph. added)

Genetically Engineered Food and the Right to Know: What’s Hidden Beneath the GMO Label? – by Colin Todhunter, GlobalResearch.ca – “Rachel Parent’s campaign (Kids Right To Know) on GMO labelling has been the subject of a GM industry strategy aimed at countering her message. Despite this, in January 2016, Rachel Parent managed to get an invite to Monsanto’s annual shareholders’ meeting in St Louis (listen from 31:45). From the floor, she had the opportunity to address Monsanto CEO Hugh Grant directly and began by saying: ‘One of your statements in your public report is that your success depends on public acceptance of your products. How do you expect the public to accept your GM crops if you make every effort to hide them?.. Parent offered the example of computer manufacturers providing the ‘intel inside’ label on their products because they are proud of their technology. She went on to state: ‘If you truly believe that your technology is safe, if you truly believe that it has the potential to feed the world, then why are you treating it like a dirty little secret that can’t be shown on the label? Why, if it’s such a proven technology, are you fighting it [labelling] instead of promoting it? 64 countries around the world already require mandatory GMO labelling?”

Clinton Emails: How Google Worked With Hillary to Try and Overthrow Syria’s Assad – by Rudy Takala, Washington Examiner via 21stCenturyWire – “The Silicon Valley’s technotronic oligarchy have been exposed as a mere extension of the CIA in terms of playing a role in Washington’s state policy of regime change in Syria… This latest email release reveals how then US Secretary of State, and now Democratic presidential favorite Hillary Clinton colluded with executive at Google to launch a digital PR onslaught against the president of Syria, Bashar al Assad... This is all part of Google’s ‘color revolution’ business, and also part of the Smart Power Complex used to manufacture public consent for ‘humanitarian interventions’ globally… The leak also reveals how Qatari network Al Jazeera played an active role in this plot too. Al Jazeera has already been caught repeatedly manipulating international news throughout the Middle East.

Syria-Pipelines-EU-TurkeySoros-Obama-Merkel-Erdogan Win Control of Europe – by Eric Zuesse, RINF.com – “On Friday, March 18th, a combined effort by George Soros, Barack Obama, Angela Merkel, and Tayyip Erdogan, arranged to get the EU to abandon previously sacrosanct fundamental human rights of refugees, and to transfer $6B+ to Turkey, in return for placing the refugee burden onto Turkey and getting Turkey to cooperate so as to assist the breakup of Syria, which will enable a gas-pipeline and an oil-pipeline to be built through Syria to enable Qatar’s gas and Saudi Arabia’s oil to be pipelined through Syria into the EU, so as to replace Russian oil and gas, which now fuel the EU… Here, in my rush translations from the original German-language reports at German Economic News (Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten) are the key reports and headlines…”

Large protests held across Europe over EU-Turkey refugee deal – from PressTV.ir – “Other major European cities also saw similar protests. Several thousand people in Barcelona carried banners with slogans such as “No person is illegal,” and hundreds of other people also staged demonstrations in Swiss cities of Geneva, Zurich, and Lucerne… A controversial agreement was clinched in Brussels between Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu and the EU on Friday to curb the huge flow of asylum seekers to Europe. Under the pact, Ankara will be obliged to take back all illegal refugees deported from Greece while the EU will accept thousands of Syrian asylum seekers directly from Turkey… According to the agreement, Turkey will start accepting the illegal refugees who were crossing into Greece on March 20 and the relocation of refugees from Turkey into the EU would occur as of April 4… The EU-Turkey deal, however, has provoked strong reactions from aid agencies and rights groups, including the United Nations’ refugee agency, the United Nations Children’s Fund, the UK-based NGO Save the Children, and Amnesty International, about its legality and practicability.”

Turkish Coastguards Reportedly Attack Migrant Boat Near Greek Island – from SputnikNews.com – “A Turkish coastguard ship was allegedly seen trying to capsize a boat with about 40 refugees on board this morning, according to witnesses from a humanitarian rescue boat, the Times of Malta reported Friday… Several photos appeared on Twitter showing an alleged Turkish coastguard ship chasing a dinghy packed with refugees. According to the Maltese source, the incident happened near the Greek island of Agathonisi around 8 AM local time… The attackers were trying to hit the refugee boat seeking to disable its engine first using a paddle but then using a rope hook, according to witnesses. Seeing that their attempts were in vain, a bigger Turkish coastguard ship began to circle the refugee boat trying to capsize it… ‘While this was taking place, a larger coastguard vessel started circling the migrants’ boat creating a dangerous wave intended to flood the engine, but could have also capsized the vessel,’ the Malta-based Migrant Report said.”

‘For a Song’: Turks Buying Up Migrants’ Property in Syria – from VeteransToday.com – “Turkish citizens are buying up the property of Syrians who leave the country for just a fraction of its real cost, a Greek MEP told RIA Novosti news agency on Sunday… Refugees from the Middle East often pay tens of thousands of euros to shady “businessmen” for a promise to take them Europe, Notis Marias said. He demanded an official inquiry into the matter.Several days ago the president of an aero club in Mesolongi, Greece was arrested after he took 30,000 euros from seven Syrian refugees for moving them to Italy… ‘There are families in various parts of Syria, mainly close to the Turkish border, who leave the country and sell their houses and whole estates to Turkish buyers just for a song,’ Mr. Marias said.”

Russia’s Ultimate Lethal Weapon – by Pepe Escobar, InformationClearingHouse.info – “One might be tempted to see Glazyev drawing up plans to return to some sort of Tsarist self-sufficiency while cutting off ties with the West. Assuming some version of that would be approved by the Kremlin, what’s certain is that it may turn into a huge blow the EU might not recover from… Imagine Russia defaulting on all its foreign debt – over $700 billion – on which Western sanctions have raised extra, punitive costs in terms of repayment… The default would be payback for the twin Western manipulation of oil prices and the ruble. The manipulation involved unleashing on the oil market over five million barrels a day of excess reserve production that were held back by a few usual suspects, plus derivative manipulation at the NYMEX, crashing the price… Then, the derivative manipulation of the ruble crashed the currency. Almost all imports to Russia were virtually blocked – as oil and natural gas exports remained constant. In the long run though, this should create a significant balance of trade surplus for Russia; a very positive factor for long-term growth of Russia’s domestic industry… Vladimir Yakunin, the former head of Russian Railways, now out due to a reshuffle, recently told AP in no uncertain terms how the aim of US sanctions was to cut off Russia economically from Europe.”

al-Baghdadi-Then&NowEmbarrassed: Erdogan Sends ISIS Leader to Libya for Being Poor Houseguest – by Gordon Duff, VeteransToday.com – “Then in October, Iraq’s air force bombed his convoy as he was heading to Al-Karable to attend a meeting with ISIL commanders. 25 other ISIL militants were killed in the special operation… Few hours after the assault, the spokesman of Iraq’s joint forces declared that Al-Baghdadi was injured in the Iraqi airstrike on his convoy and was taken away from the scene by his forces… The terrorist leader was first transferred to Raqqa, where surgeons saved his life but failed to give him a thorough treatment due to a lack of specialized medical equipment… Sources disclosed a few days later that the ISIL leader had been taken to Turkey for treatment through a series of coordination measures by the CIA… After specialists said al-Baghdadi needed months of recovery, one of his aides was appointed to run the cult until the so-called caliph would return to duty… ‘While everyone is looking for him in Iraq and Syria, no one expects him to be in Sirte,’ the Libyan source told FNA, adding, ‘If he is to be exposed to danger, Sirte would be the last place on Earth for his life to be endangered as it is the safest Takfiri stronghold in the world.’ “

Philippines says it seized ‘N. Korean cargo ship’ in line with UN sanctions – from RT.com – ” ‘In compliance with the United Nations resolution, the North Korean ship in Subic will be impounded and not allowed to leave port,’ Jose said… The Philippines will wait for a group of experts from the United Nations to decide what to do next, the spokesman said… ‘The world (question: just who is this “world”?) is concerned over North Korea’s nuclear weapons program and as a member of the UN, the Philippines has to do its part to enforce the sanctions,’ Manolo Quezon, deputy presidential spokesman, said in a radio interview… However, the Jin Teng’s documents apparently prove the ship belongs to Sierra Leone, is owned by an entity based in the British Virgin Islands and is run by a Chinese firm from the Shandons province, Philippine Coast Guard regional commander Raul Belesario told AP… ‘On paper, it’s not North Korean,’ he said… The Jin Teng arrived at Subic Bay flying the Sierra Leone flag on February 27 and started unloading palm kernels.”

Agenda_2030-apocalypse-blueUN Agenda 2030 is a ‘global roadmap’ to corporate fascism and totalitarian socialism – by Alex Newman, NaturalNews.com – ‘The master plan is comprised of 17 “Post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals” (SDGs) with 169 specific “targets” to be foisted on all of humanity — literally all of it, as the plan itself states explicitly. “As we embark on this collective journey, we pledge that no one will be left behind,” reads the UN manifesto, entitled Transforming Our World: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. But if you love liberty, self-government, free markets, or the U.S. Constitution, you will almost certainly be wishing that the UN would leave you behind… Officially dubbed “Agenda 2030,” the UN plot, as its full title suggests, is aimed at “transforming” the world. The program is a follow-up to the last 15-year UN plan, the defunct “Millennium Development Goals,” or MDGs. It also dovetails nicely with the deeply controversial UN Agenda 21, even including much of the same rhetoric and agenda. But the combined Agenda 2030 goals for achieving what is euphemistically called “sustainable development” represent previous UN plans on steroids — deeper, more radical, more draconian, and more expensive… For now, at least, the world and the White House are all pretending that the SDGs are binding on Americans, too. However, the U.S. Senate was not consulted, as the Constitution requires for all treaties. And even if the Senate were to ratify it, the federal government cannot grant itself new anti-constitutional powers merely by approving a treaty. Therefore, the agreement has no force in the United States. But as UN Agenda 21 showed clearly, that does not mean that the Obama administration, and possibly future presidents, would not attempt to push it forward anyway. The American people, therefore, must demand through their elected representatives that the UN power grab be stopped.”

Poisoned, Marginalised, Bankrupt and Dead: The Role of Agroecology in Resisting the Corporate Stranglehold on Food and Agriculture – by Colin Todhunter, RINF.com – “This crisis stems from food and agriculture being wedded to power structures that serve the interests of the powerful agribusiness corporations in the Western countries, especially the US. Over the last 60 years or so, Washington’s plan has been to restructure indigenous agriculture across the world. And this plan has been geopolitical in nature: subjugating nations by getting them to rely more on US imports rather and grow less of their own food. What happened in Mexico under the banner of ‘free trade’ is outlined further on in this article… Agriculture and food production and distribution have become globalised and tied to an international system of trade based on export-oriented mono-cropping, commodity production for the international market, indebtedness to international financial institutions (IMF-World Bank) and the need for nations to boost foreign exchange (US dollar) reserves to repay debt (which neatly boosts demand for the dollar, the lynch pin of US global dominance). This has resulted in food surplus and food deficit areas, of which the latter have become dependent on (US) agricultural imports and strings-attached aid. Food deficits in the global South mirror food surpluses in the West.”

Stingray-Cell_TrackerNo, Turning On Your Phone Is Not Consenting to Being Tracked by Police – by Alex Emmons, TheIntercept.com – “The Maryland Court of Special Appeals on Wednesday upheld a historic decision by a state trial court that the warrantless use of cell-site simulators, or Stingrays, violates the Fourth Amendment… The trial court had suppressed evidence obtained by the warrantless use of a Stingray — the first time any court in the nation had done so… Last April, a Baltimore police detective testified that the department has used Stingrays 4,300 times since 2007, usually without notifying judges or defendants… The ruling has the potential to set a strong precedent about warrantless location tracking. ‘Police should now be on notice,’ said Nate Wessler, a staff attorney with the ACLU’s Speech, Privacy, and Technology Project. ‘Accurately explain your surveillance activities to a judge and get a warrant, or risk your evidence being thrown out.’ “

Israel planning new war on Lebanon: Report – from PressTV.ir – “The Beirut-based al-Akhbar newspaper said on Saturday that American officials, whose names were not mentioned in the report, have warned Beirut that the Tel Aviv regime is planning to launch another war against the Arab country… The Americans told the Lebanese “not to give Israel an excuse to start a war,” al-Akhbar said, adding that the US officials had been informed by their Israeli counterparts that the regime is interested in attacking Lebanon, particularly in light of Saudi Arabia’s strategic shift in policy… Last month, Riyadh said it had suspended USD 3 billion in military assistance to the Lebanese military and another USD 1 billion to the country’s internal security forces… The aid was cut after Lebanon refrained from endorsing Saudi-crafted statements against Iran at separate meetings held in Cairo and Jeddah.”

Raqqa-UprisingISIS Syrian capital Raqqa hit by uprising, defections – reports – from RT.com – “Several local sources say the clashes in Raqqa have been escalating for several days and resulted in numerous defections from the ranks of Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL, also known as Daesh, an Arabic pejorative term)… ‘About 200 Syrian militants of Daesh took the side of residents of Raqqa, which forced the terrorists to organize roadblocks at the entrance to the city,’ one source told Sputnik… Reports of desertion have been confirmed by Alalam news and Hamrin news… After heavy clashes with IS fighters on Sunday, its former members helped the locals secure at least five neighborhoods in the city, where the black IS flag has been replace with the national flags of Syria… According to witness reports, Raqqa citizens now control the al-Dareiyeh, al-Ramileh, al-Ferdows, al-Ajili and al-Bakri neighborhoods.”

Syria: Political Breakthrough at Hmeimim? – by South Front, VeteransToday.com – “A meeting which without any exaggeration can be called historic, just took place at the Russian airbase at Hmeimim, which is the location of the Ceasefire Coordinating Center (CCC)…

Leaders of various opposition movements and armed formations, who have fought against Syrian government forces for years, assembled behind one table. Remarkably, the meeting took place at the opposition’s initiative… ‘We trust Russia,’ said Meis Kreidi, who spent a long time abroad as a member of the opposition. – ‘We finally have peace in our land thanks to Russia’s support. We have finally taken the first steps toward ending the war.’.. Meis Kreidi represents the For Democratic Syria organization. She was a member of delegations discussing Syria’s problems in Moscow… ‘Starting with February 27, the Syrian population’s conditions have been improving. And I would like to say only one thing: perhaps we’ve had enough fighting. I believe that now is the time for a political dialogue. Our country needs a new constitution. We need to involve all the factions, all field commanders and muftis.’.. ‘Everyone except the terrorists, there is no place for them on Syria’s soil. God willing, we will establish the transition council in the near future.”

Ahmed_Mohamed-w-clockThe FBI Has Quietly Started Spying on U.S. School Children to Quash Dissent at an Early Age – by Claire Bernish, ActivistPost.com – “McCarthyism quietly returned in January — repackaged, rebranded, and updated to fit a modern narrative — in an official policy set forth by the FBI that asks high schools to target their students… ‘Preventing Violent Extremism in Schools,’ an unclassified 28-page manifesto for the ostensible purpose of waging the War on Terror in U.S. schools, opens with a brief summary of what we can expect from the latest in governmental indoctrination: ‘High school students are ideal targets for recruitment by violent extremists seeking support of their radical ideologies, foreign fighter networks, or conducting acts of targeted violence within our borders. High schools must remain vigilant in educating their students about catalysts that drive violent extremism and the potential consequences of embracing extremist beliefs.’(emph. added)

No_Cargo-SingaporeAre You Kidding Me? Chinese Exports Plunge 25.4 Percent Compared To Last Year – by Michael Snyder, ActivistPost.com – “We just got more evidence that global trade is absolutely imploding. Chinese exports dropped 25.4 percent during the month of February compared to a year ago, and Chinese imports fell 13.8 percent compared to a year ago. For Chinese exports, that was the worst decline that we have seen since 2009, and Chinese imports have now fallen for 16 months in a row on a year-over-year basis. The last time we saw numbers like this, we were in the depths of the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression of the 1930s. China accounts for more global trade than any other nation (including the United States), and so this is a major red flag. Anyone who is saying that the global economy is in “good shape” is clearly not paying attention… If someone would have told me a year ago that Chinese exports would be 25 percent lower next February, I would not have believed it. This is not just a slowdown – this is a historic implosion.”
