Sympathizing with minorities: Another Canadian professor speaks out against collectivist identity politics Signs of the Times

When one of my friends and colleagues accused me of being unsympathetic to minorities, I was indignant. How dare he? After all, I am myself a member of a much maligned and prejudicially treated minority ethnic group, with which I identify strongly. Not only that, both of my children are "visible minorities," as we like to say here in Canada: my son was adopted from Thailand; my daughter was adopted from China. In our current cultural moment, to be unsympathetic to minorities implies the worst sins we can imagine: oppression of the vulnerable, racism, male supremacism, heteronormality, and Islamophobia. Who but the most egocentric, ethnocentric cynic, or the most self-serving, callous exploiter, or the most fearful, insecure weakling, could be unsympathetic to minorities?


'Trolleyman' terror attack hero gets over $100K in GoFundMe campaign Signs of the Times

The viral internet sensation from the Bourke Street terrorist attack in Melbourne, dubbed 'Trolleyman', is due to receive a major financial windfall after a GoFundMe campaign set up in his honor surpassed its original target. Homeless man Michael Rogers, 46, used a shopping trolley to intervene as Somali-born attacker Hassan Khalif Shire Ali was fighting with police. "I seen the trolley to the side and I picked it up and I ran and threw the trolley straight at him and got him but didn't get him down," Rogers told Seven News.


Thaw looming? North and South Korea begin tearing down guard posts at the border Signs of the Times

Soldiers from North and South Korea are beginning to actually demilitarize the demilitarized zone, tearing down guard towers that symbolize the peninsula's division. On Sunday, soldiers from both sides of the DMZ began to disassemble 20 frontline guard posts along the highly fortified and historically tense border. The de-escalation gesture of removing the guards, weaponry and now the structures themselves was jointly agreed upon by generals from the two Koreas' armies in late October in an effort to meet goals set during September's meeting between South Korean President Moon Jae-in and North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un. While the militaries initially agreed to the removal of 22 guard posts, it was later decided that each side would leave one of these up, without weaponry. The North Koreans are believed to be preserving the guard tower where Kim Jong-un had once been, according to Yonhap. While some progress is being made, there remains a lot of work to do if the two sides...


Bomb squad responds to suspicious package at Fort Lauderdale airport, Florida Signs of the Times

Broward County Sheriff's deputies and a bomb squad responded to reports of a suspicious package at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport in Florida. The airport was put on lockdown for about an hour. Passengers tweeting from inside and outside the airport say the place has been placed on lockdown. Fort Lauderdale airport is located in Broward County, recently at the center of a pitched battle between Republican and Democrat candidates vying for the Florida Senate seat. GOP candidate Rick Scott has sued the county's electoral officials, alleging voter fraud and improper handling of ballots. Local investigative journalist and conspiracy theorist Laura Loomer claimed on Twitter that a source had told her a box with "provisional" written on it was discovered in the trunk of a rental car at the airport just before it was put on lockdown. The unconfirmed report is likely to fuel ongoing speculation that electoral officials in the Democrat-leaning county are tampering with...


Illegal immigrant released by 'sanctuary city' in New Jersey charged with triple murder Signs of the Times

An illegal immigrant released by a "sanctuary city" county in New Jersey was charged last week with a triple homicide halfway across the country in Missouri, authorities said Friday. Luis Rodrigo Perez stands accused of being the gunman in a shooting rampage last week that claimed the lives of two men and one woman at two homes. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said it had tried to deport Perez after he was arrested on domestic violence charges in Middlesex County, New Jersey, last year. But the county, which has a noncooperation policy with ICE, refused to alert federal agents when it released Perez in February, ICE said. "Had ICE's detainer request in December 2017 been honored by Middlesex County Jail, Luis Rodrigo Perez would have been placed in deportation proceedings and likely sent home to his country - and three innocent people might be alive today," said Corey Price, acting ICE executive associate director.


US fighter jet crashes in Philippine Sea due to 'mechanical issue' Signs of the Times

An F/A-18 naval fighter jet from the aircraft carrier USS 'Ronald Reagan' crashed into the Philippine Sea near Japan's Okinawa Prefecture, with both pilots rescued. The aircraft crashed after suffering a "mechanical issue" while traveling on a routine mission in the Philippine Sea, the US Navy said in a statement, adding that both pilots successfully ejected and were quickly recovered by the USS 'Ronald Reagan.' According to the Japanese Coast Guard, the incident happened 300km southwest of Kitadaitojima Island, which is part of the nation's Okinawa Prefecture. The aircraft carrier resumed normal operations, and the US Navy launched an official probe into the crash. The lost plane belonged to the US 7th Fleet, which is based in Yokosuka, Japan. Over the past two years, the fleet gained a notorious reputation of the most 'disaster-prone' detachment of the US Navy. It was blighted by high-profile incidents, including ship collisions, which claimed the lives of numerous servicemen....


Robert Reich: Amazon Is Everything Thats Wrong With America Truthdig RSS

While America was fixated on the most tumultuous midterm election in modern history, Amazon reportedly decided that its much-vaunted second headquarters would be split between Long Island City in Queens, and Crystal City, across the Potomac from Washington, D.C.

What does Amazons decision have to do with Americas political tumult? Turns out, quite a lot.

Amazons main headquarters is in Seattle, one of the bluest cities in the bluest of states. New York and metropolitan Washington are true-blue, too.

Amazon could have decided to locate its second headquarters in, say,  Indianapolis, Indiana. Indianapolis vigorously courted the firm. Indianapolis is also a Republican city in a bright red state.

Amazons decision wasnt based on political partisanship, but it reveals much about the real political and economic divide in America today.

Amazons business isnt just selling stuff over the Internet. Its getting consumers anything they want, faster and better. To do so, it depends on a continuous flow of great new ideas.

Like the other leading firms of the economy, Amazon needs talented people who interact with each other continuously and directly keying off one anothers creativity, testing new concepts, quickly discarding those that dont work, and building cumulative knowledge.

Technology isnt a thing. Its a process of group learning. And that learning goes way beyond the confines of any individual company. It happens in geographic clusters, now mostly along the coasts.

As the Times Emily Badger has reported, the digital economy has been great for places like Seattle, New York, metropolitan Washington, and the other big talent hubs like San Francisco, Boston, and LA. But its left behind much of the rest of the country.

The result is widening inequalities of place.

For most of the last century, wages in poorer parts of America rose faster than wages in richer places, as inventions were put to work in the hinterlands. After Henry Ford invented the Model T, for example, workers on assembly lines all over the Midwest built it.

Now its just the opposite. Bright young people from all over America, typically with college degrees, are streaming into the talent hubs of America where the sum of their capacities is far greater than theyd be separately.

The invention sparked inside these hubs is delivering streams of new designs and products to the rest of the world including to other global hubs.

In return, the money pouring into these places is delivering high wages, great living conditions (museums, restaurant...


Two innocent Mexican men burnt alive by mob after false WhatsApp messages Signs of the Times

Two innocent men were dragged out of a jail cell and burned alive by a cheering mob as rumours of child abductors spread rapidly on WhatsApp. The message talked of a "plague of child kidnappers" and three children, aged four, eight and 14, had been found murdered. It claimed the criminals were involved in organ trafficking, as the children were found with their abdomens sliced open and their organs removed. But the two men - an uncle and his nephew - who were set upon by a mob of villagers were falsely accused after they were spotted near an elementary school. Distressing footage shows the pair being beaten and then set on fire outside a police station, as the mother of one of the men watched on a Facebook live steam.


Khashoggis Last Words Revealed as Turkish Media Plans to Publish Audio of His Murder The Mind Unleashed

A day after President Tayyip Erdogan dropped the latest bombshell related to the Saudi murder of Jamal Khashoggi, saying Turkey had handed over an audio recording of the journalists brutal slaying inside the Istanbul consulate to the U.S., Saudi Arabia, Germany, France and Britain, the contents of Khashoggis last words have emerged.

Editor for the the Turkish newspaper Daily Sabah, Nazif Karaman, shared some details from the audio tape with Al Jazeera. Karaman said Khashoggis last words were:

Im suffocating Take this bag off my head, Im claustrophobic  according what he confirmed is the authentic audio recording from inside the Istanbul consulate.

Meanwhile at the conclusion of the centennial anniversary of WWI ceremony in Paris President Erdogans office confirmed he and President Trump discussed the Jamal Khashoggi killing on the sidelines of the weekend events.

The two leaders spoke in Paris, via the Turkish presidency.

The prominent Turkish journalist for the popular pro-government Daily Sabah described further that the tape confirms that Khashoggi suffocated to death while a plastic bag was over his head in a killing that lasted for about seven minutes.

During the Al-Jazeera interview Karaman also said the group of 15 hitmen responsible for carrying out the murder, and who were reported to have arrived in Istanbul the day before the October 2 killing, spent 15 minutes dismembering Khashoggis body.

And notably, Karaman said his newspaper plans to publish segments of the audio death tape. According to the Al-Jazeera report:

Karaman said that Daily Sabah would soon publish images of the tools that were brought into the country and used by the Saudi group.

He added the Turkish newspaper would also publish some of the recordings that document the last moments of Khashoggis life.

If this happens it will likely renew the flood of anti-MbS press coverage that occurred in the weeks after the murder was revealed.

It will also raise serious qu...

Bubbling pool of mud is on the move in California, and no one knows why Signs of the Times

When it comes to matters of geology and rumbling earth in California, the San Andreas Fault is usually the star of the show. But this time around, the area near the infamous fault has caught people's attention due to a mysterious pot of bubbling mud. Refusing to stay in place, a roiling mass of carbon dioxide and slurry-like soil is migrating across the state at a pace of 20 feet a year. So far, it's carved a 24,000-square-foot basin out of the earth, and it's set to continue its crusade until whatever's driving it dies out. Scientists currently have no real idea why it's moving or if it can be stopped. So, what do we know about it? This curiosity appeared in the Salton Trough, an area of California that's being stretched apart by a tectonic battle between the forces of the San Andreas Fault and the East Pacific Rise, a mid-ocean ridge. This unique environment is where the Colorado River dumps plenty of its sediment, which gets packed up so that the lower layers a few miles down...


This Company Gives Non-Smokers 6 Days Off To Make Up For Cigarette Breaks TruthTheory

By Amanda Froelich

If you needed additional incentive to give up smoking cigarettes (other than a reduced risk of increased risk of developing heart disease, stroke, and lung cancer), this might be it. A company in Japan is offering non-smoking workers an extra six days of paid holiday leave each year. The reason why? To offset the amount of time smokers take for cigarette breaks.

The Telegraph reports that Piala Inc., a marketing firm based in Tokyo, implemented the change after non-smoking workers complained that they were working more hours than their co-workers who smoke.

One of our non-smoking staff put a message in the company suggestion box earlier in the year saying that smoking breaks were causing problems, said Hirotaka Matsushima, a spokesman for the company. Our CEO saw the comment and agreed, so we are giving non-smokers some extra time off to compensate.

The company took the matter seriously, as the office is located on the 29th floor in a building. That means each cigarette break lasts at least 15 minutes, according to staff.

Trump Says He is Likely to End the Federal Ban on Marijuana TruthTheory

By Amanda Froelich

Following the forced resignation of US Attorney General Jeff Sessions, stock in marijuana rebounded. And now, President Donald Trump says it is likely the psychedelic herb will be decriminalized during his term in office.

The LA Times reports that President declared that he would likely support a congressional effort to end the federal ban on pot. The move would signify a significant change in the legal cannabis industry, as well as end the threat of a Justice Department crackdown.

A bill to decriminalize the herb is presently being pushed by a bipartisan coalition. It would allow for states to go forward with the legalization process without the threat of federal prosecution.

Trump made his comments to a group of reporters before boarding a helicopter to attend the G-7 Summit on Friday. He expressed support for the bill, which was proposed by the bipartisan group the day before.

I support Sen. Gardner, Trump said, referencing one of the bills main sponsors, Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.). I know exactly what hes doing. Were looking at it. But I probably will end up supporting that, yes.

So far, Washington D.C. and nine US states have legalized the legal consumption of marijuana for adults. Additionally, 20 US states permit marijuana for medical use.

Trump Is Now DENYING That 3,000 Puerto Ricans Died In Hurricane Maria

Just when you thought Donald Trump couldnt sink any lower with his denial of reality, he comes along and Tweets that nearly 3,000 American citizens DIDNT die during Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico, and that somehow this death toll number is the fault of the Democrats.

Trump wants no more relief funds for Puerto Rico

President Trump doesnt want to give Puerto Rico any more federal money for its recovery from Hurricane Maria, White House officials have told congressional appropriators and leadership. This is because he claims, without evidence, that the islands government is using federal disaster relief money to pay off debt.

The big picture: Trump also told senior officials last month that he would like to claw back some of the federal money Congress has already set aside for Puerto Ricos disaster recovery, claiming mismanagement.

The White House didnt comment on this reporting.

Trump Plans to Stop Disaster Relief Funds to Puerto Rico Truthdig RSS

President Donald Trump reportedly plans to stop financial aid to millions of Americans in Puerto Rico still dealing with the devastating effects of Hurricane Maria.

The president believes, without evidence, that the Puerto Rican government is using the disaster relief funds to pay off debt rather than help its citizens rebuild, according to Axios.

The island nation is still rebuilding after Marias destruction more than a year ago; most of the country waited almost 11 months for power to be restored and thousands of people are still displaced after their homes were destroyed.

Trump was initially reluctant to send money to Puerto Rico and has continually complained about having to do so since.

The people of Puerto Rico are wonderful but the inept politicians are trying to use the massive and ridiculously high amounts of hurricane/disaster funding to pay off other obligations, he tweeted in late October. The U.S. will NOT bail out long outstanding & unpaid obligations with hurricane relief money!

Hes also gone after San Juan Mayor Carmen Yuln Cruz specifically, questioning her leadership.

Trump has routinely refused to believe the official death toll, which the Puerto Rican government place at 2,975 people. The president claims that Democrats are trying to make me look as bad as possible.

His recent outburst stems from an October article in The Wall Street Journal, according to Axios, that Trump mistakenly assumed said that the Puerto Rican government was misusing the relief funds.

Instead, the newspaper reported that the federal oversight board simply raised the possibility of hedge funds restructuring the countrys debt and help it out of bankruptcy court.



We Are Witnessing The Most Destructive Fire In The History Of California, And Devil Winds Threaten To Make Things Even Worse blogfactory

Nov 2018 09:39 PM PST



California has been absolutely devastated by horrific wildfires in recent years, but the state has never seen anything quite like this.  At this moment, three major wildfires are raging, and the Camp Fire in Butte County is already officially the most destructive wildfire in California history.  Thousands of firefighters are desperately trying to contain this fire, but they havent had much success.  More than 6,700 structures have already been destroyed, and that shatters the all-time record that was set just last year.  In fact, five of the ten most destructive wildfires in California history have happened within the last two years.  The Camp Fire and the two mammoth fires in southern California have forced hundreds of thousands of people to evacuate from their homes, and authorities are warning that devil winds of up to 40 miles per hour could accelerate this crisis in the early morning hours of Monday.

The death toll from these fires continues to rise, and the numbers are being continuously updated.  At this point, the latest official number of deaths is up to 31

Firefighters battled heavy winds and parched conditions throughout the day in their herculean struggle against the Camp Fire and two blazes in Southern California that have killed at least 31 people, destroyed thousands of homes and forced 250,000 to flee.

But that number is expected to increase, because there are at least 228 people that are unaccounted for right now.

Many of the headlines have been about homes of celebrities that have been destroyed, but that is only a very small part of the story.

The Camp Fire was so wildly out...

6 Stars Presidential Transitions Matter and President Trump Blew It With Follow-on Consequences

Although I am a huge fan of President Trump I wrote the first article on how he could win (Counter-Coup: How Trump Can Win, CounterPunch, 14 August 2018) and went on to write the 30 piece Trump Revolution Series, I also believe in learning from the mistakes of others this book has a great deal to offer the next President.

Early on in the book we learn that then candidate Trump did not want a presidential transition team and refused to assign campaign funds for it. When he was persuaded by Chris Christie that he needed one and Christie offered to raise funds separately, Trump assented, only to blow a fuse when he learned Christie had raised $9 million.

Sinkhole swallows car in Zamora, Spain Signs of the Times

A car has been 'swallowed' by a street in Spain after a sinkhole opened up and the car almost disappeared completely. The Renault Megane was parked on the Avenue Cardinal Cisneros, Zamora outside the Leon Felipe Park when at around 11.18pm on Friday night, the ground gave way and the car sank into the asphalt toppling sideways, according to local firefighters.

The pound is falling as city traders despair (over this government) blogfactory

Former UK prime minister Gordon Brown has warned that the world is not well placed to deal with the next financial crisis.

Phillip Inman, the Observers economics editor, reports:

Politicians and central bankers will be denied the tools they used in 2008 when the next financial crisis hits the global economy, Gordon Brown said this morning, arguing that governments will need to respond by increasing debt levels and taxes even more than they did last time round.
The high levels of cooperation among senior policymakers across the world seen a decade ago have largely disappeared, which is a damaging situation when the global economy will need a strong fiscal stimulus following the next financial crash top avoid a slump. Speaking at a TUC conference to discuss the implications of the financial crisis, the former UK prime minister and an architect of the global cooperation a decade ago, said the four pillars to the 2008 rescue were no longer in place.

Brown pointed out that:

  • The G20 no longer represents global economic power in the way it was in 2008.
  • The rise of protectionism is already restricting trade and undermining the free trade needed to boost all nations following a crisis.
  • Central banks are not able to provide a monetary stimulus through cuts in interest rates; this is likely to still be the case many years from now.
  • Governments have denied themselves room to provide a stimulus through a misguided focus on high levels of debt and the use of taxpayer funds.

He said: When you have a Keynesian problem, it needs a Keynesian response., adding:

You cannot talk about a globally managed system. The Financial Stability Board has no power, it can only urge change, it is only by invocation that it can try to bring countries to change their policies.

The G7 was out of date in 2008 and was superseded by the G20, Brown said, adding that the G20 is out of date.

So the decision-making framework for the next 10 years will need to be different to the one for the last 10 years.

He rejected proposals gaining popularity on the left in the US for a form of responsible nationalism that recommends pulling back from global coordination in favour of addressing national economic problems of stagnant wages and living standards.
He said unilateral action would fail and only a global leadership could rescue economies from a financial crisis.

British holidaymaker dies of rabies after being bitten by cat in Morocco blogfactory

Briton has died of rabies after being bitten by a cat while on holiday in Morocco, according to Public Health England (PHE).

PHE issued a warning to travellers after the UK resident contracted the disease.

Rabies is a rare but very serious infection of the brain and nerves and is nearly always fatal, according to the NHS.

Rabies does not circulate in either wild or domestic animals in the UK, but between 2000 and 2017 five UK residents became infected with rabies after animal exposures abroad, PHE added.

The government body released information about the case along with travel advice to tourists who are bitten and scratched by an animal abroad.

Satan at CU? Student group brings Satanic Temple leader to a campus blogfactory

Satan is coming to the University of Colorado.

OK, not really, but you wouldnt know that from the provocative posters hanging around the Boulder campus this month.

The posters feature a black-and-white photograph of a man holding a microphone against a bright red background. Behind him, theres a black pentagram and the outline of a rams skull. Above him, the words Satan at CU? are printed in red lettering.

The man is Lucien Greaves, co-founder and leader of the Satanic Temple, a political group that advocates for the separation of church and state. Though the group does not promote a belief in Satan, it uses Satanic imagery to show its support for rational inquiry and scientific thought.

The Secular Students and Skeptics Society student group is bringing Greaves to campus on Thursday in hopes of sparking a broader conversation about religion, science, atheism, free speech and other topics.

I purposefully designed the poster to be a little eye-catching, said Shawn Polson, president of the student group. Its like a bait-and-switch. Its this scary imagery and this guy and you think, Wow, this is going to be terrible, but when you learn about him, hes just a neuroscientist who went to Harvard who is incredibly articulate.


The Secular Students and Skeptics Society is a local chapter of the national Secular Student Alliance, a group that promotes secular values and activism.

We have weekly meetings on campus where we usually just discuss some science-y thing that interests us, Polson said. Most of our members are scientists. We have this side mission of spreading scientific thought.

Polson said he felt Greaves and the Satanic Temple aligned with the groups core tenets. The student group was granted roughly $1,200 in student fees to pay for the event, which includes travel for Greaves, advertising and other...


Casting Directors Want Actors to Take Care of Themselves blogfactory

Acting can be a difficult job. As an actor, you are thrown into many stressful situations and must find a way to hold on to your composure as well as give a great performance. Learning your lines at a moments notice, working with other actors and production personalities, sitting knee-to-knee with your competition in the casting lobby, navigating all the last-minute changes with shoot dates, call times, and lifes curve balls are all potential stressors youre asked to juggle in your role as an actor.

Believe it or not, those of us on the other side of the table have great respect for each of your accomplishments. And those of you who make it look like a cake walk, well, you are a rarity!

I cant speak to all the things in your life that make your job as an actor so challenging, but for those of you who get stuck in the mire of auditioning or performing, here are some self-care tips to consider.

1. Fuggetaboutit!
Auditions come and go. Even if you think a particular role is the part of a lifetime, just do the best you can in the audition and when you walk out of the room, leave it behind. That goes for both great and horrible auditions: you cannot predict what the clients will decide at the end of the session. There are many factors and layers of decision makers involved in the approval process. But its crucial for your sanity that you leave the audition behind once its done.

2. Relax.
Your best audition will happen when youre relaxed and confident in what you can do. If you tense up, which is easy to do when you are nervous, it will block you from your best performance. If you are relaxed, its much easier to change direction on a dime, recover if you forget a line, and show us your personality. Take relaxation classes, try meditation, and learn to control your breathingthese will all help you stay composed and keep cool in all of the stress.

READ: 3 Self-Care Practices All Actors Should Do Every Day

3. Dont be hard on yourself.
Its very important not to judge yourself when an audition or performance takes a turn for the worse. Try not to over analyze what happened in the room or relive the audition wishing you could have changed your performance or made different creative choices. Dwelling in the negativity wont make things better. Take the...

New research suggests this happens because sperm "learn" paternal experiences via a mysterious mode of intercellular communication in which small blebs break off one cell and fuse with another. Carrying proteins, lipids and nucleic acids, these particles ejected from a cell act like a postal system that extends to all parts of the body, releasing little packages known as extracellular vesicles. Their contents seem carefully chosen. "The cargo inside the vesicle determines not just where it came from but where it's going and what it's doing when it gets there," says Tracy Bale, a neurobiologist at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. Preliminary research Bale and others, announced this week at the annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience in San Diego, shows how extracellular vesicles can regulate...


Britain and France conspired to start World War I Signs of the Times

We are now before the 100th anniversary of World War I, the war that was supposed to end all wars. While honoring the 16 million who died in this conflict, we should also condemn the memory of the politicians, officials and incompetent generals who created this horrendous blood bath. I've walked most of the Western Front of the Great War, visited its battlefields and haunted forts, and seen the seas of crosses marking its innumerable cemeteries. As a former soldier and war correspondent, I've always considered WWI as the stupidest, most tragic and catastrophic of all modern wars. The continuation of this conflict, World War II, killed more people and brought more destruction on civilians in firebombed cities but, at least for me, World War I holds a special horror and poignancy. This war was not only an endless nightmare for the soldiers in their pestilential trenches, it also violently ended the previous 100 years of glorious European civilization, one of mankind's most noble...


How Veterans Changed the Military and Built the Middle Class Truthdig RSS

We thank labor unions for the eight-hour work day, pensions, the weekend, and many other employment benefits Americans enjoy. Organized workers staged direct actions strikes, sit-ins, boycotts, etc. forcing bosses to the bargaining table. Its a history most of us learn in high school.

More overlooked is the history of how the modern military was shaped by veteran-led direct actions.

For one thing, our military is famously all-volunteer. Civilians no longer fear being drafted.

To get those volunteers, recruiters and guidance counselors tout the free college education, sign-on bonuses, food and housing allowances, and VA benefits that come with military service. I was continually reminded of these things when I joined the Army in 2003.

Look into the history of these developments and youll find sit-ins, marches, and many other forms of direct action.

The G.I. Bill, passed in 1944, helped build the American middle class. It guaranteed millions of vets a college education, home loans, and more after World War II. It still does today.

Veterans of World War I, however, received no such benefit. So throughout the 1920s and early 30s, they marched and demonstrated, demanding back-pay compensation (referred to as a bonus) to reasonably match what their civilian counterparts had earned on the home front.

The largest demonstration happened in 1932, when a 25,000-strong Bonus Army occupied Washington, D.C. for two months. The veterans vowed not to leave until Congress approved the bonus. Instead, General Douglas MacArthur removed them by force using cavalry troops and tear gas.

But the veterans efforts eventually paid off. The bonus was paid in 1936. This incredible history is documented in The Bonus Army (2004), by Paul Dickson and Thomas B. Allen, and The War Against the Vets (2018) by Jerome Tuccille.

These years of protests by World War I veterans gave veterans organizations, like the American Legion, significant leverage in advocating for the G.I. Bill. President Roosevelt and Congress understood that not passing such a bill could mean veteran-led civil unrest, or worse.

Michael J. Bennett, historian of the G.I. Bill, writes, After World War I, virtually every [fighting] nation other than Britain and the United States had their government overthrown by their veterans. Its no stretch to say the G.I. Bill was passed, in part, to prevent revolution.

Two decades later, in the late 1960s, a movement within the U.S. armed forces emerged in opposition to the Vietnam War. Soldiers refused orders, sabotaged equipment, and spoke out at protests.

In Soldiers in Revolt: G.I. Resistance During the Vietnam War (2005), David Cortright concludes that Nixon ended the draft in 1973 in response to this alarming resistance. The internal problems that gave rise to changes in tactical deployment to Vietnam, he wrote, were also responsible for th...


Monsanto and Bayer are moving to create a marijuana monopoly Signs of the Times

You've heard of Monopoly, right? The fun little board game with fake money, little plastic houses, and get out of jail free cards? It's a great way to pass the time. That is, depending on who you're playing with. But when it comes to real-life properties, business, and products, however, a monopoly becomes a whole lot more dangerous. Two major companies, Monsanto and Bayer, have recently joined together and seem to be plotting to take over the cannabis industry. In other words, create a monopoly on marijuana.


Bright lasers will allow scientists to use atomic gas for quantum computing qubit storage Signs of the Times

Despite the fact that universal quantum computers have not yet been realized, the principle of calculation upon which it is based allows researchers to solve highly complex problems. In quantum computing, a qubit or quantum bit is the basic unit of quantum information - equivalent to the binary bit (the smallest unit of data in a digital computer) within a two-state device. In such networks, qubits are transported using light (as single photons of light can carry a qubit). However, these photons, which move at the speed of light, nonetheless need to be stored. A qubit can be stored in a quantum state of extremely cold gas as long as the qubit can be emitted as a photon. However, new research reveals that physicists can also store quantum information in a gas using what is called the 'hammer' approach, ArsTechnica reported Friday. An atom can be in one of three states. Two of those states, almost at the same energy level, are known as the 'ground' and 'storage' states. A ground...

David Wilcock On Ending The Divide In The ET/UFO Community

November 10, 2018

Source: Collective Evolution | By Joe Martino


The Facts: The ET and UFO community has been met with a great deal of drama and divide over the years. I have seen it deeply in only 10 years in the space. So I asked David Wilcock to share his thoughts on how we can come together.

Reflect On: Do you find yourself all out disliking people in this space due to one or two things they said you didn't like? Do you create any 'us vs them' feelings with certain people and certain aspects of this space? If so, do you feel this helps or divides?

The more time you spend on the forums, pages, commenting sections and events that touch the ET and UFO community, the more you realize it is like anything else: there are deep differences and deep divides.

Youve heard it, the lashing out on stage or online from various figureheads, calling out others in the space as not having their facts straight or being infiltrated by intelligence communities etc. This then goes online in an even bigger way, spreading through comments, forums and everything else, creating more confusion amongst people. In essence, its a giant distraction.

I found out how intense this really was when first became a lot more involved within the community 5 years ago. So I decided to make it a personal mission to begin mending relationships in the space. Further to that, we committed to producing our content the way we do at CE, in our view, has encouraged both leaders and the viewers in the space to begin thinking differently about how we create hate, divides and focus on differences. To us, this is truly walking the talk when it comes to the unity message of the movement.

Outcome of Donbass elections make it clear people support integration with Russia Signs of the Times

The outcome of the Sunday elections of heads of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics (DPR, LPR), as well as People's Councils elections, have made it clear that people in Donbass support the policy of integration with Russia, head of the Russian Center for Current Politics Alexei Chesnakov told TASS on Monday. When commenting on the elections' outcome, he pointed to some important conclusions. "First, the election campaigns and the unprecedented voter turnout prove that people support the policy the Donbass republics' authorities adopted in 2014. It undoubtedly is a victory for pro-Russian voters and pro-Russian political forces," the expert stressed. "Second, the Donbass republics have shown that their political institutions are mature enough to create conditions for legal elections," he added. "Third, the current authorities have achieved clear success, which is a result of people's trust in their leaders," Chesnakov went on to say. "Despite the hardships...


Turkey announces successful test of 'Sapan' railgun hypervelocity weapon Signs of the Times

Ankara announced that it successfully tested an electromagnetic kinetic weapon, joining a club of developers alongside Russia, the US, China, and India. Turkey announced a successful test of its new electromagnetic weapon - referred to as 'railgun' - which shoots metallic projectiles at hypersonic speeds. Turkey is the fifth country in the world to develop the weapon, after Russia, the US, China and India. The weapon has been named "Tbitak Sapan," or "Tbitak Slingshot," after Turkey's Scientific and Technological Research Council (Tbitak). Weapons similar to Sapan are capable of firing a projectile as far as 100 km, at speeds of up to 3,500 meters per second (12,600 km/h).


Masks off? Syrian opposition undergoes rebranding, changes flag Signs of the Times

Besieged in the Idlib province, the Syrian opposition, interlaced deeply with the former Nusra Front, has undergone another rebranding, changing its flag to bear a Shahada religious inscription. As the operation against terrorists in Syria comes close to its end, terrorists besieged in the Idlib province have undergone another rebranding, this time changing their flag. The so-called "Syrian Revolution Flag" - a green, white and black tricolor with three red stars, adopted back in 2012 - became a unifying symbol for a large variety of smaller terrorist and opposition movements (Daesh excluded) that fought against the elected government of President Bashar Assad throughout the entire Syrian war. In 2015, the flag saw a new wave of popularity as the Syrian opposition sought to distance itself from Daesh and other radical jihadists. "The opposition flag remained a point of contention between the opposition's so-called "revolutionary" and more hardline Islamist wings for years," War on...

The Role of Counselors-atLaw and The [unincorporated] Delaware Statutory Trusts

Remember when you were told you that you "had to have a Social Security Number"?

Sometimes, that is true, but only if you are applying for employment with the federal government. For of course, you would need it to enroll in their retirement and employee benefits program....but you dont have to have one otherwise.

It is the same scenario with the Bar Associations telling new JD graduates that they have to have a Bar Card....again, that is true, if they want to be a prosecutor for the federal government corporations and their "federated state of state franchises" and become an employee of the courtbut not otherwise.

The fact is that there is no requirement for anyone to be a Bar Association Member to engage in the profession of law in this country and there never have been.

I challenge anyone anywhere to prove that there is any general requirement to be a Bar Member, in order to use the court facilities, present cases, or offer effective counsel to others with or without pay.

Submitted to Operation Disclosure | By Rinus Verhagen

Dear people, following the article of yesterday 11 Nov. 18

Do I have an inspiration how we can speed up the stock market crash itself. I've made a blog about the smart meter and 5G, which dangers we are exposed to unasked for and unintentionally. This section explains exactly what harmful effects it has on people, animals and nature.

Hold the CEO and the company liable, Telecom, Energy companies and Housing corporations that cooperate with this with a claim of 1000 per person per day. Encourage as many people as possible to file a claim with these companies.

As a result, this CEO will resign if he personally and his company receive a claim for unsolicited terror. The company will be rudderless and the stock market value will be reduced to zero by the mass of claims. This means that the whole fiat debt system will implode.

The RV/GCR can only start when the stock exchanges collapse, so we have a tool to do this.

Then people who have been promised funds can buy these companies from the bankruptcy, decentralize them and give the energy for free to the population.

The population now pays 80% of the bill and companies that use 80% only 20% of the bill. Companies will pay 100% and settle this with their products and services.

All personnel are employed by GESARA, which means that the entrepreneur can produce much cheaper. He will also receive an income from GESARA, whether he has ass...


Turkish investigative journalist reveals Khashoggi's final moments were spent begging for life while being choked to death with plastic bag Signs of the Times

Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi spent his last moments begging for a plastic bag to be removed from his head, according to a Turkish investigative journalist. The killing lasted for about seven minutes. In an interview with Al Jazeera, Nazif Karaman, the head of investigations at the Turkish Daily Sabah newspaper, cited audio recordings of Khashoggi's final words as he was being murdered in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. According to Karaman, the recordings indicate that it took the killers about seven minutes to choke Khashoggi to death with a plastic bag placed over his head. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan earlier said audio of Khashoggi's gruesome murder had been shared with Saudi Arabia, the US, the UK, France and Germany. Ankara has claimed to have the recording since the beginning of October, when the killing took place.

But villainizing Trump should not entail sanitizing other malefactors.

'Xbox rage' sends game player on shooting spree; neighbor's home struck Signs of the Times

A Tennessee man was arrested Wednesday after he flew into a rage over an Xbox video game and fired over a dozen rounds from two different handguns into his bedroom ceiling and walls, a report said. Casey L. Jones, 30, had been playing on his Microsoft Xbox when he suddenly reached a breaking point, screaming at the game and smashing the console with his fist, the Knoxville News Sentinel reported, citing court records. Jones then went up to his bedroom nightstand, picked up a Springfield XDS handgun and fired several rounds into the ceiling, the paper reported. Jones proceeded to grab a second handgun, a Springfield XDM, and fired another volley through the walls. One of those rounds went through a window, striking a neighbor's house. Court records state Jones made threats of self-harm, which he has a history of making. An unidentified woman in the home at the time said there was no argument beforehand and he never turned the gun on her.


An American Veterans Endless Trips Back to Afghanistan Truthdig RSS

Im here in Chicago, 7,000 miles and 15 years away from Jalalabad, a desolate town in southwestern Afghanistan. Yet sometimes it seems to me as if it were yesterday, or even tomorrow, and anything but thousands of miles distant.

There are moments when it feels like I never left or maybe I mean, when it feels like it left with me, like Afghanistan and my once-upon-a-time life as a U.S. Army Ranger are all right here, right now, in my unheated garage workshop. Right here, right now, in fact, the sawdust is swirling as I run a two-inch slab of walnut through my lousy Ryobi table saw. The dust and the noise from that saw instantly bring to mind an image of an American helicopter landing in the Afghan countryside, not too far from Jalalabad. It all seems suddenly to flash before my eyes only the dust in Afghanistan was chalkier and finer than the dust from this walnut slab, which is old, but not Afghanistan old.

Each of those dusts has dry, earthy, almost sugary smells. Its hard right now for me to tell which is louder, the helicopter still in my head or the table saw in front of me. That helicopter is taking away two Afghan men with sandbags over their heads. Its dark out, but my night vision goggles make everything seem eerily bright green.

I helped snatch those two men or were they teenagers? from a house in the middle of the night. That was in May of 2003 and sometimes, right here in my workshop, I can still hear the screams of the little kids inside that house. Theyre louder than the helicopter, louder than the saw. Maybe one of those men had info that would help lead us to Osama bin Laden, then missing in action somewhere, it was believed, in Pakistan or so we were told anyway. My job wasnt to ask or understand; it was just to snatch people, sandbag them, and ship them out. Others higher up the chain of command would ask the questions under conditions that we now know and I guessed then were anything but pretty.

My own kids are three and five, probably close in age to those terrified children I glimpsed ever so briefly in that house and still cant get out of my head. My daughter and son couldnt be sweeter, but they do like to tell me no a lot. Sometimes they, too, scream and sometimes, when those screams set me off, I yell back, which is frustrating for me and unnerving for them, as well as my wife.  And so I find myself out in that garage more than she would like and more than I would like, too, since it often means that Ive taken that endlessly unnerving trip back to Afghanistan.

Try to remember what its like to be the kids age and parenting will be easier, my mom tells me when I complain. Being a parent, I guess, means being a good rememberer. The problem with remembering...

Have CERN discovered a particle that 'threatens our understanding of reality'? Signs of the Times

There was a huge amount of excitement when the Higgs boson was first spotted back in 2012 - a discovery that bagged the Nobel Prize for Physics in 2013. The particle completed the so-called standard model, our current best theory of understanding nature at the level of particles. Now scientists at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at Cern think they may have seen another particle, detected as a peak at a certain energy in the data, although the finding is yet to be confirmed. Again there's a lot of excitement among particle physicists, but this time it is mixed with a sense of anxiety. Unlike the Higgs particle, which confirmed our understanding of physical reality, this new particle seems to threaten it. The new result - consisting of a mysterious bump in the data at 28 GeV (a unit of energy) - has been published as a preprint on ArXiv. It is not yet in a peer-reviewed journal - but that's not a big issue. The LHC collaborations have very tight internal review procedures, and we can...

Few readers of his works realize that he was also a staunch opponent of imperialism, having been president of the Anti Imperialist League from 1901 to his death in 1910. Twain wrote about the treatment of the Chinese in San Francisco during the Civil War when he was a newspaper reporter. In 1865 he astonished many passersby, even those who fought for the abolition of slavery years earlier, when he chose to walk arm in arm through the San Francisco streets with the editor of the recently established Afro American newspaper, the Elevator. Of course, one of his most famous quotes was on his definition of politics: "To protect us from the crooks and scoundrels". He also said something that resonates so strongly today: Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people...

I walked through a county courthouse square
On a park bench an old man was sitting there
I said, your old courthouse is kinda run down
He said, naw, it'll do for our little town
I said, your old flagpole has leaned a little bit
And that's a ragged old flag you got hanging on it
He said, have a seat, and I sat down
Is this the first time you've been to our little town?
I said, I think it is
He said, I don't like to brag
But we're kinda proud of that ragged old flag
You see, we got a little hole in that flag there when
Washington took it across the Delaware
And it got powder-burned the night Francis Scott Key
Sat watching it writing say can you see
And it got a bad rip in New Orleans
With Packingham and Jackson tuggin' at its seams
And it almost fell at the Alamo
Beside the texas flag, but she waved on though
She got cut with a sword at Chancellorsville
And she got cut again at Shiloh Hill
There was Robert E. Lee, Beauregard, and Bragg
And the south wind blew hard on that ragged old flag
On Flanders field in World War one
She got a big hole from a Bertha gun
She turned blood red in World War Two
She hung limp and low a time or two
She was in Korea and Vietnam

Red Flag fire warnings currently in effect in California

Statewide death toll rises to 31

California wildfire deadliest and most destructive in state history

12 November 2018

The death toll from wildfires ravaging Northern and Southern California has risen to 31. Thousands of homes and structures have been destroyed, and hundreds of thousands of people have been forced to flee from the spreading inferno.

The most destructive fire is in the norththe Camp Fire, which started under the power lines at Poe Dam in Butte County. Fueled by high winds and dry weather, the blaze quickly engulfed the nearby communities of Pulga and Concow, before reaching Paradise, a town of 26,000, shortly after students were beginning their school day. The entire city was forced into a panicked and unprepared evacuation. By Friday morning, Paradise had burned to the ground.

Part of the devastion in Paradise. Evacuation orders are not yet lifted

Harrowing pictures and video have been posted on social media of cars racing to escape as walls of flame bear down on all sides. Others had to abandon their cars and try to escape the flames on foot, while some did not make it.

With the death toll at 29, it is the deadliest wildfire in state history, the number of fatalities greater than the Griffith Park blaze in Los Angeles in 1933. At least two hundred more are missing.

The Camp Fire is also the most destructive in state history. At least 6,453 houses have been destroyed, along with Paradises hospital and retirement home. Both the destruction and the death toll are expected to rise as the fire continues to burn and officials begin to sort through the wreckage.

The Camp Fire erupted on the same day as the Hill and Woolsey fires in southern California, which together have forced the evacuation of over 260,000 people. Two deaths have been attributed to the fires in the south.

President Donald Trump responded to the fires by threatening to cut off federal funding. Billions of dollars are given each year, with so many lives lost, all because of gross mismanagement of the forests, he declared in a tweet on Saturday. Remedy now, or no more Fed p...


Crucifying Julian Assange Truthdig RSS

Julian Assanges sanctuary in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London has been transformed into a little shop of horrors. He has been largely cut off from communicating with the outside world for the last seven months. His Ecuadorian citizenship, granted to him as an asylum seeker, is in the process of being revoked. His health is failing. He is being denied medical care. His efforts for legal redress have been crippled by the gag rules, including Ecuadorian orders that he cannot make public his conditions inside the embassy in fighting revocation of his Ecuadorian citizenship.

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has refused to intercede on behalf of Assange, an Australian citizen, even though the new government in Ecuador, led by Lenn Morenowho calls Assange an inherited problem and an impediment to better relations with Washingtonis making the WikiLeaks founders life in the embassy unbearable. Almost daily, the embassy is imposing harsher conditions for Assange, including making him pay his medical bills, imposing arcane rules about how he must care for his cat and demanding that he perform a variety of demeaning housekeeping chores.

The Ecuadorians, reluctant to expel Assange after granting him political asylum and granting him citizenship, intend to make his existence so unpleasant he will agree to leave the embassy to be arrested by the British and extradited to the United States. The former president of Ecuador, Rafael Correa, whose government granted the publisher political asylum, describes Assanges current living conditions as torture.

His mother, Christine Assange, said in a recent video appeal, Despite Julian being a multi-award-winning journalist, much loved and respected for courageously exposing serious, high-level crimes and corruption in the public interest, he is right now alone, sick, in painsilenced in solitary confinement, cut off from all contact and being tortured in the heart of London. The modern-day cage of political prisoners is no longer the Tower of London. Its the Ecuadorian Embassy.

Here are the facts, she went on. Julian has been detained nearly eight years without charge. Thats right. Without charge. For the past six years, the U.K. government has refused his request for access to basic health needs, fresh air, exercise, sunshine for vitamin D and access to proper dental and medical care. As a result, his health has seriously deteriorated. His examining doctors warned his detention conditions are life-threatening. A slow and cruel assassination is taking place before our very eyes in the embassy in London.

What Happens to the Water Bottles at the #Beirut Marathon? Blog Baladi

A lot of people yesterday during the Beirut Marathon become all of environmentally conscious and started sharing pictures of discarded water bottles on the side of the road. Tens of thousands of runners join the Marathon yearly, which means that tens if not hundreds of thousands of water bottles are consumed and its an unfortunate but common sight to see discarded bottles all over the place.

Nevertheless, a lot of environmental NGOs took part in this years edition and made sure all bottles were collected to be reused and/or recycled throughout the 5K & 8K races. This being said, bashing BMA for all these plastic bottles and even for road closures and traffic is uncalled for. However, I believe further initiatives need to be taken to make the race more sustainable and truly green as a lot of marathons around the world are banning plastic bottles all together.

All in all, the 16th Beirut Marathon edition is a great sporting event that we should all be proud of and encourage. The participants are running for unity, fun, glory, achievement, promoting wellness and healthy living, for causes and charitable organizations and more importantly for the benefit of Lebanon and all the Lebanese. Every year, we have new causes to run for, inspiring runners to look up to and new challenges to overcome.

So lets spread positivity for a change and cut down on the negativity


Winged Humanoid Observed in Fayette County, WV Terra Forming Terra


This puts the time frames back a lot.  Makes the argument of a potential human system completely out of reach.  

There is nothing in the archeological record to support this life form so it is perhaps reasonable to wonder if this could be alien in origin. It still has antecedents in the gargoyle.

Otherwise it is an excellent look at this creature and it determines that it is large enough to depend largely on gliding.   Many other glimpses had left this aspect uncertain.

The Pentagon's Plan to Dominate the Economy Terra Forming Terra

As i have stated many times, government prints money, then spends money and then taxes it back or relies on the credit system to  actually draw it down through interest charges which is offset with a moderate inflation.

Spending that mass of money to best effect has mostly been done through the military in which maximum productivity is possible except for that small fraction actually spent on war.  After that entitlements matter and then you struggle to get effective civilian programs.  My point though is that military spending has dominated our economy for a long time and employs the best and the brightest. 

There are still plenty of management difficulties particularly due to secrecy.

This is no plan and has been accepted for a long time.


Tomgram: William Hartung, The Pentagon's Plan to Dominate the Economy

Back in the mid-1990s, I wrote the following in my book The End of Victory Culture, with memories of the American world of my 1940s and 1950s childhood in mind:
The worlds of the warrior and of abundance were, to my gaze, no more antithetical than they were to the corporate executives, university research scientists, and military officers who were using a rising military budget and the fear of communism to create a new national security economy.  An alliance between big industry, big science, and the military had been forged during World War II.  This alliance had blurred the boundaries between the military and the civilian by fusing a double set of desires: for technological breakthroughs leading to ever more instant weapons of destruction and to ever easier living.  The arms race and the race for the good life were now...

JFK jr as NEW AG? Terra Forming Terra

A lot has happened and is now happening, that it is difficult to know how to provide a coherent report.  Worse than that, not knowing the background makes it easy for a new reader to be dismissive.  In fact that is healthy. Otherwise i have nothing to say.

I have posted that a massive operation is presently underway that truly began decades ago and which includes Mil Intel in particular.  I do not use the phrase 'white hats' except to say men are doing their duty in face of a concerted long standing operation against the regime that is itself far older.  I myself perceived the existence of this threat many years ago as it slowly emerged.  To the point of wondering if Mil Intel was asleep which i considered unlikely.

The true enemy has operated secretly and has secured control over large swaths of the governing apparatus both in the USA and abroad.  They have done this with access to unlimited financial resources which includes willing ( or otherwise ) control of the central banking system.  The apparatus itself was surely produced by either or both of COMITERM and the NAZIS.  The intellectual infection was also introduced into the universities under various names, but all revering authoritarian socialism.  This infection has spread downward into the general education system itself where resistance is much weaker.

The counter attack is now in full tide and is about to erupt into our general consciousness. You must understand that very detailed planning is  been implemented and the enemy is resisting.

It may help to understand that Trump's Career was plausibly sponsored by the Kennedy fortune.  Put another way, certain things happened that can best be explained by a true silent partner.  It proves possible that JFK jr staged his death in an airplane crash in 9...


New evidence of how the Norse became long-distance mariners Terra Forming Terra


I do not think that any of this was sudden but it does tell of the methodology that must trace back to before the Bronze Age.  Proofing a ship against worms and fouling has been a constant to today.

The viking Age was a natural response to opportunity created by the Roman Collapse itself in the West.  Recall this was also preceded by Celtic shipping superior to Roman shipping.  Thus we have around 500 AD the first real break in serious Sea protection in Western Europe.

The recipe sounds pretty obvious and also basic.  Adding seal oil to pine pitch may well make wood highly resistant to worms and fouling and experiments indicate as much..

New evidence of how the Norse became long-distance mariners

They made tar in industrial quantities, to coat ships hulls and sails

Nov 1st 2018

 ACCORDING TO THE Saga of Erik the Red, shipworm will not bore into the wood which has been smeared with the seal-tar. Viking scholars debate the precise meaning of seal in seal-tar. One interpretation is that the Scandinavian conquerors mixed tar, or pitch, with animal fat and some experiments suggest this may indeed keep shipworm at bay. What is clear is that tar was an important marine technology, and new finds suggest that a vast industry making it emerged at the beginning of the Viking era, helping enable their conquests.

The oldest tar pits in Sweden date from around 100AD to 400AD. The first were discovered in the early 2000s, and are found close to old settlements, suggesting that the tar was for coating houses and household items. It was made by stacking pine wood into conical pits a metre or two across, setting the wood on fire and covering it with turf and charcoal to encourage a slow combustion. In this way, the woods resin would turn to tar and drip out of the cones bottom into a buried container.

However, as Andreas Hennius, an archaeologist at Uppsala University, reports in this months Antiquity, around the eighth century something shifted. The pits got much biggerreaching eight to ten metres in diameterand moved far into the forest. These pits could have made between 200 and 300 litres of tar in a single production cycle.

Mr Hennius argues that the builders needed all this tar for ships. The eighth century was when sails arrived in Scandinavia. That, in his view, is no coincidence. Tar has been found on hulls, rigging and small fragments of sails from Viking vessels. It was used to waterproof the hulls...

Bizarre metals may help unlock mysteries of how Earth's magnetic field forms Signs of the Times

The dynamo effect that generates Earth's magnetic pull could also occur in Weyl metals Weird materials called Weyl metals might reveal the secrets of how Earth gets its magnetic field. The substances could generate a dynamo effect, the process by which a swirling, electrically conductive material creates a magnetic field, a team of scientists reports in the Oct. 26 Physical Review Letters. Dynamos are common in the universe, producing the magnetic fields of the Earth, the sun and other stars and galaxies. But scientists still don't fully understand the details of how dynamos create magnetic fields. And, unfortunately, making a dynamo in the lab is no easy task, requiring researchers to rapidly spin giant tanks of a liquefied metal, such as sodium (SN: 5/18/13, p. 26). First discovered in 2015, Weyl metals are topological materials, meaning that their behavior is governed by a branch of mathematics called topology, the study of shapes like doughnuts and knots (SN: 8/22/15, p. 11)....

Die Chinesen sind auch am spendabelsten, sie geben die hchsten Geldbetrge in den hiesigen Geschften aus:

Dank ihren Einkufen tragen sie deutlich zur tschechischen Wirtschaft bei. Da sie aber nicht in so hoher Zahl anreisen, werden sie im Gesamtvolumen deutlich von den Russen berholt.

Remembering the Peace Makers: What the Armistice Commemorations Forgot Dissident Voice

Those in the war industry and the business of commemorating the dead have little time for peace, even as they supposedly celebrate it. For them, peace is the enemy as much as armed opposing combatants, if not more so. Dr Brendan Nelson of the Australian War Memorial is every bit the propagandist in this regard, encased in armour of permanent reminder: Do not forget the sacrifice; do not forget the slaughter.  The issue is how war, not peace, is commemorated.

That theme was repeated, for the most part, in Paris on November 11.  US President Donald Trump spoke of our sacred obligation to memorialise our fallen heroes.  French President Emmanuel Macron marked the 100th anniversary of the Great War by having a dig at nationalism, calling it a betrayal of patriotism (is there a difference?).  The nationalists, he warned, were getting busy, these old demons coming back to wreak chaos and death.  The intellectuals (and here, he alluded to Julien Bendas 1927 classic, La trahison des clercs) were at risk of capitulating.

But Macron, rather slyly, was hoping that the French obsession with universal values would somehow render his message less parochial: to be French was to be an internationalist, not a tunnel-visioned, rabid nationalist.  The soldiers who perished in the Great War did so in the defence of Frances universal values in order to repudiate the selfishness of nationals only looking after their own interests.  Much room for disagreement on that score, and Marine Le Pen would have been a suitable corrective.

The peace activities of the Great War, asphyxiated, smothered and derided in texts and official narratives, are rarely discussed in the mass marketed solemnity of commemorations.  The writings of those prophets who warned that any adventurism such as what transpired in 1914 would be met with immeasurable suffering are also conspicuously absent.  Jean de Bloc, whose magisterial multi-volume The Future of War appeared in 1898 in Russian, found it impossible that Europes leaders would embark on a conflict against each other; to do so would cause humanity a great moral evil civil order will be threatened by new theories of social revolution. The end would be catastrophic.  How many flourishing countries will be turned into wilderness and rich cities into ruins! How many tears will be shed, how many will be left in beggary!

These sceptics were the enlightened ones, scorned for not having the sense of fun that comes with joining battle and being butchered in the name of some vague patriotic sentiment.  If human beings are animals at play, then play to the death, if need be the rational ones were sidelined, persecuted and hounde...


Amsterdam gets tough on its b&b rip offs blogfactory

After bringing in new rules to tackle Airbnb, Amsterdam officials are now planning to get tough on traditional bed and breakfast providers, local broadcaster AT5 reported.


From 2020, people who offer bed and breakfast in their own homes will have to have a special council licence to do so. The council says the measure is necessary because the clampdown on Airbnb has led to a rise in the number of bed and breakfast operations.


This is needed to prevent lots of homes being used as hotels, the city said. Homes are first and foremost meant to be lived in. People who already offer bed and breakfast to tourists will not necessarily get a licence to continue but officials will bring in a transition period for people affected by the change.


A spokesman for the b&b owners association Amsterdam Gastvrij said that some 50% of Amsterdam tourists only come for the day and more than 90% who stay over use a hotel. And we are building 8,000 more hotel rooms, Hans Onno van den Berg told AT5. The city is trying to drain an ocean using a straw by focusing on b&bs, he said. The problems of tourism are not down to private landlords.

Bush family supported Third Reich

The GW Bush Gang, IG Farben 2001 by Robert Lederman

What my cabinet shows is that I am not afraid to surround myself with strong and competent peoplea good executive is one that understands how to recruit people and how to delegate authority and responsibility. GW Bush 1/2/2001

As promised GW Bush has recruited competent and experienced advisors. Despite their seeming diversity however they have a common denominator. The America they reflect is the oil, pharmaceutical, armament, Wall Street and eugenics interests long associated with the Bush family.

Seventy years ago a similar configuration of oil, pharmaceutical, chemical, military supply and eugenics interests were organized by Wall Street into IG Farben/Standard Oil-Hitlers industrial powerhouse. To grasp the real significance of what GW Bushs cabinet has been brought together to accomplish it is essential to understand the history of IG Farben, its relationship with American corporations and how together they applied modern technology to the task of eugenics or scientific racism.

According to former US Justice Dept. Nazi War Crimes prosecutor John Loftus -who is today the director of the Florida Holocaust Museum- The Bush family fortune came from the Third Reich,
-Sarasota Herald-Tribune 11/11/2000

Along with the Rockefellers (Standard Oil, Chase Manhattan Bank), Mellons (Gulf Oil, Alcoa Aluminum), DuPonts (DuPont Chemicals), General Motors and Henry Ford, banks and shipping companies operated by the Bush family were crucial players in setting up the industrial power behind the Third Reich. These companies poured hundreds of millions of dollars into IG Farben and provided it with technology for tactically-essential synthetic materials while withholding the same materials and patents from the US government.

The Rockefeller family, long aligned with the Bushes, owned Standard Oil. Through a stock transfer they became half owners of Germanys IG Farben with Farben likewise owning almost half of Standard Oil. According to the Encyclopedia Brittanica, IG Farben built and operated more than 40 concentration camps in Nazi-occupied Europe, including Auschwitz.

At their slave labor/factory/death camps chemicals, weapons, drugs, synthetic fuels and other materials vital to the Nazi war effort were manufactured. In addition, eugenicists like Dr. Josef Mengele used the human subjects in the camps for experiments the data from which are today the basis for many drugs marketed by the pharmaceutical industry-not too surprising in light of the fact that more Americans die from prescription drugs than from any other single cause.

At the end of WWII the allies split up IG Farben into companies that are now the top...


Inside story: the Bush gang blogfactory

Barrick Gold, caught scrambling for loot amid the corpses in
Zaire, is a corporate front for the George Bush-allied covert
political apparatus. The Canada-based Barrick is Bushs only
known current business enterprise. The company, which
Bush now personally leads, was created by Bushs political
partners-British elite narcotics financiers, and arms traffickers
and money launderers.
Using the influence of this political faction, Barrick acquired
important interests, first in the United States, then in
Canada and South America. In South America, as Barrick
boasts in its 1995 annual report, the company has an aggressive,
long-term approach, with mines and projects established
in strategic locations in Argentina, Chile, Peru, Bolivia, and
Brazil. Almost two-thirds of the exploration and development
drilling budget will be spent in South America, where
the company has decided to focus its efforts, the annual
report states. In addition, with its intended conquests in Indonesia
and Africa, the firm now says it aims to move from third
to first among the worlds largest gold mining companies.
We present here the results of EIRs investigation of the
Bush company, centering on the following principal figures:
George Herbert Walker Bush, whose father was a partner
in the powerful London-controlled private banking firm
Brown Brothers Harriman. Relevant to the Barrick story,
Bush was U.S. vice president and chief of covert operations
in the Reagan-Bush (1981-89) administration, and U.S. President
(1989-93). As a former President and power broker, Bush
is Barrick Gold Corp. s chief lobbyist, a stockholder in Barrick,
and honorary senior adviser to Barricks international
advisory board.
Adnan Khashoggi, a Bush-allied Saudi billionaire and
arms trafficker, founder of the Barrick Gold Corp.; famous
for his illegal weapons sales to Iran.
Peter Munk, a business failure who became a protege of
the British royal family, and Khashoggis partner. Munk is
chairman of Barrick Gold Corp.
Brian Mulroney, Canadian prime minister (1984-93)
and George Bushs errand boy; Barrick Gold lobbyist and
director, Bushs lieutenant on the Barrick international advisory
Barrick Gold was founded in Toronto, Canada, in 1983
The majority investment in the firm was held by Khashoggi
and his arms-trafficking partners, who were just then gearing

BRICS: A Future in Limbo? Dissident Voice

The BRICS are not what they intended to be, never really were.

Today its clear that fascist-turned Brazil is out so we are at RICS. There is not much to argue about. The worlds fifth largest economy, Brazil, has failed and betrayed the concept of the BRICS and the world at large. Whether you consider South Africa as a valid member of the BRICS is also questionable. Much of SAs social injustice has actually become worse since the end of apartheid. Ending apartheid was a mere political and legal exercise.

Distribution of power and money in SA have not really changed. To the contrary, it worsened. 80% of all land is still in the hands of white farmers. This is what President Cyril Ramaphosa wants to change drastically, by confiscating white farmers land without compensation and re-distribute it to black farmers, who have no formation of how to run these farms. This is not only utterly unjust and will create internal conflicts, the last thing SA needs, but it is also very inefficient, as farming and agricultural production will decline most likely drastically and SA, a potential exporter of farm and agricultural goods, will become a net importer, a serious hit on South Africans economy.

The principle of redistributing land to the black African society is a solid one. But not by force and not by confiscation without compensation, nor without an elaborate training program for African farmers to lead to a peaceful transfer all of which does takes time and cannot happen over-night. There are too many example of hush-hush land reforms that failed miserably and actually plunged entire societies into poverty and famine. Land reforms YES, but planned and well organized and strategized. Land reforms are long-term propositions. To be successful, they dont happen over night.

On a recent trip to SA, I spoke to several black people, including especially women from townships; i.e., SOWETO, who said they were better off under apartheid.

It is not a scientific statistic, but the fact that some black people dare say that the system that atrociously discriminated, exploited and raped them, was better than todays non-apartheid system, is significant. It is a sad testimony to a generation of SAs democracy.

So, now we could say, the BRICS are down to RIC Russia, India and China.

Does India deserve to belong to a club that has as a goal equality and solidarity?

The caste system, about which very little is written, is a horrible, horrible mechanism of discrimination. And there are no efforts under way to abolish it. To the contrary.

Is such injustice excusable under principles of tradition? Hardly. Especially as this cultural tradition serves only a small upper class, is devoid of any compassion and has absolu...

Sikh Soldiers Memorial In UK Vandalised Hours After World War I Tribute blogfactory

The 10-foot-high statue in UK depicts a Sikh soldier of the 15th Sikh battalion during World War I


Condemning the vandalism at UKs newly inaugurated Indian War Memorial, Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh has called for strict action against the culprits of the apparent racial attack on the occasion of the World War I centenary.

The vandalism of the 10-foot-high statue, depicting a Sikh soldier of the 15th Sikh battalion, symbolic of the contribution of South Asian soldiers to World War I, was outrageous, said the chief minister said in a statement while expressing serious concern and distress over the incident.

The incident comes in the backdrop of a series of racial attacks against Sikhs in the UK and other Western nations in recent months.

The statue was unveiled last Sunday and was damaged hours before a planned remembrance event to honour the Sikhs soldiers who laid down their lives during the Great War.

Over 74,000 soldiers from India died during World War I and several events were being organised in various countries to commemorate the sacrifices of soldiers from around the world who participated in the war effort between 1914 and 1918, as part of the centenary of the Great War.

The chief minister said that the shocking and horrific act was a clear attempt by racist elements to undermine the contribution of Sikhs soldiers to the war and to create an environment of hatred and enmity against the community.

The anguish of the Sikh community over the incident was understandable, he added, urging the UK authorities to go all out to identify and punish the culprits.

Guru Nanak Gurdwara, Smethwick had donated around 20,000 pounds for the bronze sculpture, while the local Sandwell Council had invested in creating the public space with seating and lighting to house the new monument.

The inaugural event was attended by hundreds, including Labour Party MP Preet Kaur Gill, the UKs first female Sikh MP.

Mr Singh said that more than the financial loss, it was the pain caused to the sentiments of the Sikh community, which had lost thousands of men to the war, in distant lands, far from their homes.


Chinas First AI TV Anchor Armstrong Economics

China has scored a real first and it may be an answer to the FAKE NEWS problem in the United States and Europe. A TV anchor has joined a Chinese news agency who is not human. Chinas state-run Xinhua News Agency has launched an artificial intelligence (AI), anchor. English AI Anchor debuted Thursday at the World Internet Conference in the countrys eastern Zhejiang Province.

Modeled on the agencys Zhang Zhao presenter, the new anchor learns from live videos and is able to work 24 hours a day, reporting via social media and on the Xinhua website. He learns from live broadcasting videos by himself and can read texts as naturally as a professional news anchor, the company said in an online statement.

Now if we can do this for politicians and judges, it will end war and injustice!!!!

We were granted our Business license in China and they are quite thrilled to have an AI computer that writes analytical reports on Chinese equities, markets, and currencies. We too are thrilled to have the largest forecasting operation on the Chinese markets that is completely computer driven without human biases.


The Realist View of the Midterms Armstrong Economics

QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong; Your take on the midterm elections is that the Democrats really failed and simply won a symbolic victory?

Thank you


ANSWER: Yes. The Democrats keep making lower highs and deeper lows. They do not review the major trend nor are they willing to revise their central theme.  While the Democrats won the majority in the US House of Representatives can blow their horn really loudly, there is a far more important shift in domestic power balance has taken place. Trumps gains in the Senate demonstrate that his election was not a fluke. The FOX poll that showed more Republicans identified with Trump than the Republican Party demonstrates above all the trend is away from both party mantras. We truly are moving more in the direction of a third party trend rejecting career politicians on both sides.



Escape From The Infomatrix Dissident Voice

For four long months Ive been in hiding from The Infomatrix.  Inspired both by a dire need for inner peace and an article titled: Society is Made of Narrative.  Realizing This Is Awakening From The Matrix by Caitlin Johnstone, Ive gone into nearly complete informational and electronic detox.  No television, no radio, no internet (except a short email visit daily), no books, no magazines, no political circus, no celebrity gossip, no sports scores, no incessant and obnoxious advertisements, no mindless chatter, none of Empires Official Narrative.  Only music fills the air and beautifies the passage of time in my home.

The result has been many hours of introspection, and a rethinking of how a seventy year old hippie might use his last few fading years on this planet more productively.  Sadly, I came to realize that, even though Ive long considered myself separate from, and even immune from The Infomatrix, complete escape is nearly impossible  I was sucked into the narrative each time I marched for a cause.  I was sucked into the narrative every time I wrote an article examining or dissecting the narrative.  Ive long been unknowingly and inadvertantly distracted by the shiny, sparkling objects of Empire, but have now begun writing my own narrative.

My new narrative is an unfinished project.  The Age of Aquarius kicked off to a strong start back about a half century ago, but stopped far short of accomplishing all those elusive hopes and dreams of peace on earth, good will to all people.  We marched defiantly in the streets of Amerika, burning the flags of the criminal Empire which terrorized Southeast Asia for power and profit.  We threw our bodies upon the gears of draft boards which sought our complicity in their crimes.  We broke windows, disrupted traffic, interrupted commerce, and as we burned our draft cards, lit a small flame of Amerikan consciousness, and finally saw an end to The Vietnam War.  Then, with our asses out of harms way, we cut our hair and went to work for the system which needed more and more Vietnams to continue business as usual.  But its wars became much more low key  Which of us really knew where Grenada is?  The bloody spectacles of Vietnam would never again be displayed on the nightly news.  War became sanitized, and more of a fireworks show as far as most folks were concerned.  The rockets red glare, the bombs bursting in air, gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.  There was something oddly patriotic about all the bombing, in a very sick way, and few of us gave pause to consider the dead, dismembered bodies in its wake.

My new narrative is all about finishing the project, and remembering that this was supposed to be The Age of Aquarius, but this so-called land of the free and brave never really set foot outside The Age of Darkness and Death.  You remember The Age of Aquarius, dont you?  That Never-Neverland w...


Italy Refuses to Yield to Brussels Is Another Exit in the Works? Armstrong Economics

Italy is arguing that it will retain its budget and refers to how both France and Germany exceeded their budgets and the Commission disregard the Maastricht treaty rules in the case of both countries. In the budget dispute, the Italian government was not deterred by the threat of penalties from the European Commission. Finance Minister Giovanni Tria said last week that Italy would commit economic suicide to stick to the plans of the previous government to reduce the deficit. Once again, anyone who really reviews the EU structure in an unbiased manner will see that the crisis stems from the plain fact that the FAILURE to consolidate the debts from the outset means that the EU Commission sticks its nose into every budget of each member.

In the USA the result of a federal budget and debt means that each state is on its own. Their budget is of no interest to Washington. In the case of the EU, each member state prints its own Euros not the ECB. That means the EU Commission acts like a dictator applying the same rules to everyone regardless of the local social needs. This is why the Euro will fail. It is NOT a structure remotely similar to the USA despite they pretended it would reap the same benefit by just a single currency.

Eventually, Ital will be forced to choose between its people and the dictatorship of Brussels. That will be another whole level of political chaos next year.

Facebook Fired Oculus Founder For His Political Beliefs And Pro-Trump Donations BlackListed News

Every so often, Silicon Valley's virtue-signaling, shadowbanning, anti-conservative media titans appear in Congress or devise a quick PR campaign to show to the world just how truly impartial they are with zero liberal bias. And every single time it backfires as their true ideological face quickly emerges from behind a fake, hypocritical mask. Take the case of former Facebook executive, Oculus co-founder and virtual-reality wunderkind Palmer Luckey, who was a rising star of Silicon Valley when, at the height of the 2016 presidential contest, he donated a modest $10,000 to an anti-Hillary Clinton group. His donation sparked a backlash from his colleagues, which then led to him being put on leave, and six months later he was fired.

Impossible to Regulate Deregulated Charter Schools Dissident Voice

Regulations have to do with what is allowed and what is not allowed. They establish what an individual, organization, or business can or cannot do. Regulations shape behaviors, actions, conduct, aims, and outcomes.

Regulations are often used in self-serving ways by different factions of the rich to benefit themselves while disadvantaging other wealthy competitors. Those with the most political-economic power hold sway and fashion regulations as they alone see fit. As in other spheres of capitalist life, might makes right. Power, not reason or principles, dominates affairs. The main point is that regulations, like laws and policies, are always political. They have a class character to them. Regulations are not neutral or above class interests because we do not live in a classless society.

The main question is who is creating or eliminating regulations and for what aims? The key issue is not whether regulations are good or bad, per se, or how many or how few there are, but which one of the two major classes in society do they serve? Regulations are a tool of class warfare. There is a big difference, for example, between capital-centered regulations verses human-centered regulations. The former serve the wealthy few who dominate society while the latter serve the common good.

Regulations and regulators have, of course, frequently failed to block many bad behaviors and problems. Regulation does not always work. Regulation does not automatically guarantee quality or progress. A major example of the failure of regulations and regulators is the Wall Street engineered economic crash of 2008 that has left most economies in awful shape for the last 10 yearswith no real and sustainable improvement in sight. Indeed, it appears that there is no returning to even substandard pre-2008 economic levels. Multiple regulatory agencies that have been around for decades did not prevent this still-unfolding economic catastrophe that the mainstream media keeps trying to downplay.

In todays context, having no regulations (deregulation) guarantees chaos, anarchy, and violencekey features of the free market. A rules-free environment ensures that only the strongest and fittest survive within the free market while the majority keeps losing. Deregulation has little to do with accountability, innovation, or prosperity and security for all.

Since the late 1970s deregulation has been a major feature of the neoliberal antisocial offensive of the rich to counter the inevitable falling rate of profit under capitalism. Governments at home and abroad have been wreaking havoc in their societies as a result of phony austerity agendas launched to save the rich. Deregulation goes hand in hand with privatization, a major form of which is contracting. Deregulating public agencies and enterprises (e.g., education) allows for greater privatization, often through contracting and public-private partnersh...

CNN to file lawsuit over White House Acosta ban Signs of the Times

CNN seems to be setting the wheels in motion for a lawsuit against the White House regarding the revocation of reporter Jim Acosta's press credentials. Appearing on CNN's "Reliable Sources" this Sunday, ABC's former White House correspondent Sam Donaldson made the claim that Jim Acosta and CNN had already filed a lawsuit against the Trump administration over the White House's decision to revoke the reporter's press pass. "I hope I'm not mistaken, but it's my understanding that CNN and Acosta have sued, that there will be a court hearing on Tuesday on this very matter that we've been discussing," Donaldson said. Donaldson claims that he has already been asked to prepare an affidavit to be submitted to court, likely due to Donaldson's own reputation for confrontation with the White House, including trading personal insults with President George Bush in 2006.


Firefighters battle Santa Ana winds, 170,000 Los Angeles residents still under evacuation blogfactory

The Woolsey Fire has scorched 83,275 acres and devoured more than 175 structures.

As firefighters race to control the Woolsey Fire, mandatory evacuation orders remain in effect for approximately 170,000 residents of Los Angeles County, from Malibu to West Hills in the San Fernando Valley.

The Woolsey Fire is still burning in spots on both sides of the 101 freeway. It has torched hillsides and coastline across 83,275 acres of Los Angeles and Ventura counties, and destroyed more than 170 buildings in the beaches, canyons, and Valley. Containmentstands at 10 percent.

On Sunday, firefighters extinguished flare-ups and kept a hold on the fires perimeter, stopping it from spreading south into communities like Pacific Palisades, said Los Angeles County Fire Chief Daryl Osby. He noted that there were no new reports of homes burning down.

Today was a better day, he said.

But, Osby cautioned: Were not out of the woods tonight.

Powerful Santa Ana winds are forecasted to kick up again later tonight, posing a major threat. Wind gusts can easily fan embers and ignite dry brush.

None of the mandatory evacuation orders issued for the Woolsey Fire since Friday have been lifted in LA County, and approximately 57,000 structures in Ventura and Los Angeles counties are still at risk.

The evacuation orders affect multiple communities, including Topanga, where many residents have opted to shelter in place, as well as the entire city of Malibu, which City Councilmember Lou La Monte has said was hit very, very hard.

Authorities continue to urge Topanga residents who have remained in their homes to leave immediately.

(A full, up-to-date list of evacuation areas and evacuation centers is listed at the end of this story).

The Los Angeles County Sheriffs Department is also warning residents in evacuation zones to resist the urge to return home. Even in areas where flames are no longer active, there are downed power lines and trees, smoldering embers that could reignite, limited to no cell service, and dangerous air quality.



100 years later, Belgian town celebrates Canadian liberators blogfactory

Ive never experienced anything like this in my life, says Montreal captain of the welcome received in Mons

When Canadian troops marched into Mons, Belgium, 100 years ago, chasing away the remnants of the German army, locals werent exactly sure where their liberators were from.

The soldiers were wearing kilts and some had berets with a red pom-pom atop. They looked like the Scots who had tried, unsuccessfully, to keep Mons from falling into German hands at the start of the war, in August 1914.

We knew you would come back, the people of Mons shouted. The incoming troops, though, were from Montreals own highland regiment, the Black Watch.

Just a few hours after they and a battalion of the Royal Canadian Regiment reclaimed the town from the Germans, the Armistice went into effect, and residents joined the Canadians in celebrating the end of the First World War.

On Sunday, there was no mistaking the nationality of the soldiers, veterans and families who had returned to Mons to recreate the final scene of the war.

Canadian flags, both big and small, filled the Belgian town. Around 11 a.m., ET, the pipes and drums of the Black Watch led a parade through the towns cobblestone streets, following a route similar to the one their predecessors took on Nov. 11, 1918.

Several thousand people from the Mons area attended the parade, despite rain, and applauded as the Canadian contingent marched past.

The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Saturday dismissed the circulating copy of a masters degree being associated with its director general for Lahore, Shahzad Saleem, as fake, and released what it said was the real degree.

The veracity of Saleems degree, issued by the now defunct Al-Khair University from Azad Kashmir, received renewed media attention this week after it was discussed during the NAB officials appearance on a late night TV show on Thursday.

It is pertinent to mention that the said transcript, issued in 2002, had reportedly featured Calibri font, which was not commercially available until five years later. However, the corruption watchdogs spokesperson today released the original copy of the transcript, which he pointed out features the Arial font.

Heavy rain in Dubai washes Pakistans chance of series win against New Zealand blogfactory

The third and final one-day international between Pakistan and New Zealand was abandoned after persistent rain in Dubai on Sunday, leaving the series tied at 1-1.

The play was interrupted due to heavy rain as New Zealand were chasing a daunting 280-run target set by Pakistan. New Zealand were 35-1 after 6.5 overs when the umpires signalled for a stoppage in play after light rain turned into heavy showers.

Earlier, a well-crafted 92 from Babar Azam and half-centuries from Fakhar Zaman and Haris Sohail guided Pakistan to 279-8.

Lockie Ferguson, though, put the brakes on with a fine display of fast bowling, taking a career-best 5-45 from his 10 overs.

With the series on the line with each side having won a game, Pakistans batting clicked from the outset after Sarfraz Ahmed won the toss and chose to bat.

Zaman and Mohammad Hafeez (19) added 64 for the first wicket before Hafeez dislodged a bail with his heel while working Ferguson to long leg, bringing Azam to the crease in the 14th over.

Zaman hit eight boundaries in his eighth one-day half-century before being caught on the long-on boundary off Colin de Grandhomme for 65.

Azam then paced the innings during a third-wicket stand of 108 with Sohail.

Sohail struck two sixes and six boundaries in his 59-ball 60 before he was caught in the deep off Ferguson.

Azam continued to work the gaps well, happy to pick up singles and only occasionally open his shoulders. He faced 100 balls for his 92 but that included just four fours and one six.

He finally fell in the 49th over as he tried to reach his ninth one-day hundred, caught in the deep off Trent Boult, small consolation for the left-arm seamer whose 10 overs cost 80 runs.

Pakistan lost four wickets in the last two overs and may regret scoring only 38 runs in the last five.

New Zealand are without their skipper Kane Williamson who pulled out with a groin injury with Tom Latham leading the side.

Pakistan left out Imam-ul-Haq on precautionary grounds after he suffered a blow on his helmet in the second match on Friday but his scans were clear.

The series is level at 1-1 after New Zealand won the first match by 47 runs before Pakistan claimed the second by six wickets, both in Abu Dhabi.

The US Mid-Term Election was an Unequivocal, Unadulterated Farce as Proven by Leftist Defiance of the Court and Federal Laws

NOVEMBER 11, 2018

Source: Starship Earth: The Big Picture

All you need do is browse the headlines at one publication like Freedom Outpost to see that this mid-term election in America was FUBAR.

The corruption is unparalleled and unabashedly blatant. Its downright astonishing. The criminals are stealing the rights of the American people to a fair and honest election to CHOOSE their representatives.

The results thus far tabulated in no way represent what The People thought they were going to get and stated that they wanted.

When you look at the maps of the results (above) provided by QAnon its clear there was a massive tsunami of red from coast to coast. Its also clear that the areas where immigrants have been funnelled and where the dimms are concentrated are sporting an oddly blue hue. Its not rocket science.

Take a look at most of the headlines at the website below and remember to prop up your jaw because if youre not prepared, it will shatter when it hits the floor.

The gall of these people doesnt register because they are officially insane. They have taken leave of their senses and are dangerous. Theyre completely out of order. LOCK THEM UP.

The situation at this point is so staggering all I can do is laugh. These results will not standand when one considers that these liars, cheats and thieves suggest they are the ones to run the country Im speechless. Do they think were blind?



Bayer CEO: Roundup Weedkiller Cancer Victims Are 'Nuisances' Humans Are Free

There are about 8,700 lawsuits pending against Monsanto, by people who allege that exposure to Roundup weedkiller is responsible for their cancer. 

Most of the people behind these lawsuits have stories not unlike the one told by Dewayne Johnson, during his landmark jury trial which resulted in a unanimous decision against Monsanto.

Like Johnson, many of these people have non-Hodgkin lymphoma or they have family members who have already died from the disease. They face long, grueling trials as they go up against the biotech behemoth.

To Werner Baumann, CEO of Bayer (which acquired Monsanto last year for $63 billion), these people are just nuisances.

FACEBOOK is owned by the CIA . Who the fuck is Mark????? blogfactory

Comment seen on media

Facebook was setup by the C.I.A. Try telling that to most people and they laugh at it. People seem to think its a coincidence that Facebook seems to be so intrusive over and over again. Privacy policies that would make anyone scratch their head. Im not going to beat around the bush with this blog post. Facebook was setup by the C.I.A. as a data mining project to collect as much information on as many people as they could. Not only that but it also has very strong ties to D.A.A.R.P.A. . The purpose of this data mining project that became Facebook was to find out a boat load of things on people. Where they are going. What they are doing. What airline are they using Who do they associate with What type of books or movies have you been reading. How you feel about things politically. The list goes on and on. Before I elaborate let me say that my prior statement about Facebook being setup by the C.I.A. isnt a theory or a hunch. If you simply follow the money its quite easy to see what is going on. Before we follow this money trail, just think about this.

If Facebook was setup by the C.I.A. (and it was) its a pretty brilliant plan. Never before have the people they want to watch actually given up so much information VOLUNTARILY! The C.I.A. doesnt even have to dig for most of it. People put it right out there. Think about how descriptive some peoples status updates are. They tell you where they are going, who they are with sometimes, what they like. All these things. Did you know that once Facebook has you tagged in ONE PHOTO they have you identified anytime an image of you is uploaded whether it is tagged, labeled, or anything else to ID it? Facebook runs facial recognition on all photos and can even ID you by running it on some really low resolution shots, and its done for free! Does that sound like something a website would do for free? There are some much more intrusive things Facebook does to track you and every site you visit that you probably dont know about. All this without visiting Facebook or even needing to be a member!! After I tell you about the money trail and the start of Facebook we will get into more of these privacy issues and there are a lot. The facial recognition is just the tip of the iceberg. Before we do all that lets have a quick history lesson, the way I do history. With the ACTUAL TRUTH. The movie The Social Network was a big hit. It was supposedly all about the start of Facebook from a college dorm room to a multi billion dollar corporation in Palo Alto California. They left out some very interes...


RFK Jr. Wins Case against U.S. Government for Violations of Vaccine Safety Operation Disclosure

RFK Jr. wins case against U.S. government for vaccine safety violations

Sunday, November 11, 2018

(Natural News) Del Bigtree, founder of Informed Consent Action Network (ICAN), teamed up with Robert F. Kennedy Jr. to take on the U.S. government by filing suit against the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) for vaccine safety violations and they won. This is big news for all concerned with the topic of vaccine safety. It turns out the federal agency has been neglecting their vaccine safety obligations for over 30 years. The lawsuit brought by RFK Jr. is evidence that vaccine safety as we know it is nothing more than a sham.

Government agencies charged with protecting the public are not doing their part to ensure and improve the safety of immunizations, but will they be held accountable?

RFK Jr. and ICAN take on DHHS

As sources explain, a clause in the The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 (NVICA) compels DHHS to take responsibility for improving vaccine safety and efficacy, and charges the agency with constant monitoring and improving of adverse event reporting. The Mandate for Safer Childhood Vaccines clause also tasks DHHS with providing a report on improvements made in these areas to Congress every two years.

RKF Jr. and ICAN reportedly suspected that DHHS was failing to meet this responsibility, and filed a Freedom of Informtation Act request to obtain the records of these biennial reports.

Today is 11/11/11. (2018 = 11)

This day is special in many ways.

This will be a day to mark history forever.

Most are asleep and it will pass just like any other I will point out why you should pay attention to what is happening today.

Really it should be all over the MSM but all you will see there is the work of the dark cabal and their negative agenda.

What is in the news is just a distraction.

Fake News...Shootings...Fires...Caravans...Hurricanes...Election Fraud...& more...all the work of the Dark...Deep State...Cabal...Satanic...Pedophile...Chimera Group...Off World ET Agenda.

The cabal wanted to set off the San Andreas Fault Line and cause Earthquakes for more damage...but that ability has been taken away by the good they are throwing a tantrum over the loss...and all they can do is start fires. (as seen in California recently)

Today is the 100 year anniversary of World War 1.

And today the left would like nothing better than to start World War 3 if they were to have their way.

Suicides among Japanese young people hit 30-year high blogfactory

Child suicides in Japan are the highest they have been in more than three decades, the countrys education ministry says.

In the fiscal year 2016/7 up to March, 250 children from elementary to high school age were recorded as having taken their own lives.

The number is five more than last year, and the highest it has been since 1986.

Concerns the children had reported included family problems, worrying about their futures and bullying.

But schools said the reasons behind about 140 of the deaths are unknown as the students did not leave a note.

Most of those who took their lives were of high school age, where Japanese students typically study until they are aged 18.

A report released by Japans Cabinet Office in 2015 looked at child suicide data in the country from 1972-2013, which recognised a massive peak at the start of the second term of the school year on 1 September.


Japan had one of the highest suicide rates in 2015 but since preventative measures were introduced, the figures have dropped, according to World Health Organization.

Overall suicides across Japan fell to about 21,000 in 2017, police say, down from a peak of about 34,500 in 2003.

However, child suicide rates remain relatively high making it the leading cause of death among young people in the country.

The number of suicides of students have stayed high, and that is an alarming issue which should be tackled, education ministry official Noriaki Kitazaki said as the latest figures were released.

The Missing Republic Found!

Source: Paul Stramer | By Anna Von Reitz

The prize goes to my friend, Tom, a long-distance trucker based out of Phoenix, Arizona. You gotta watch those truckers. They have a lot of time on their hands to just sit and think....

Many good theories were proposed, many people drawing a connect between the old Roman Republic and the Municipal Government, but still, nothing very conclusive in terms of any official singular "Republic" associated with any level of our Government.

Until Tom said to himself.... well, what else is missing that should be there?

The original Confederation of Federal States-of-States is missing. And sure enough, if you dig around a bit, you find that the Confederation of States was sometimes referred to as the "Federal Republic".

We still have to be very careful to define what we are talking about.

Just because there was once "a" Federal Republic doesn't mean that there is one now, and it doesn't mean that any organization calling itself "the" Republic has any relationship to the original Federal Republic, either.

It all depends on how such an organization is structured, what its articles are, what its purposes and leadership and ownership interests are. Is it American?

Is it really our Federal Republic being restored? Or another look-alike, sound-alike Ringer trying to sneak in the back door?

Obviously, a French commercial corporation calling itself "The Republic of the United States of America" is no more our Federal Republic than a Scottish commercial corporation calling itself "The United States of Am...

So now Kim Goguen aka "Kim Possible" is going all the way back to Ramses to try to justify her position.

Ramses was my Uncle. We used to call him "Ram-bubba" behind his back. Take a look at my slanted toes and the gold flecks in my eyes. No, that isn't a sign of liver trouble. It's royal Egyptian DNA .

But nobody cares and neither do I.

When people die in actual fact --- as opposed to dying on paper due to government-led legal chicanery --- they leave behind their earthly possessions. By laws long established, their assets are passed on to their heirs. And that's that.

If their heirs lose those inherited possessions by fair means, there is no recourse for that.

If their heirs are the victims of fraud, however, there is recourse.

We, the American States and People, have been the victims of fraud.

Ramses and his Heirs just had bad luck.

They ran into the Romans, remember? And then the Romans ran into the Visigoths? (They were also my ancestors, BTW.) And then the Visigoths married into the French Celtic Kingdoms and that gave rise to the trans-English Channel Kingdom of Camailoth circa 500 A.D. ..... and that gave rise to William of Normandy.... who controlled both England and large sections of France...and that led to the Amoricans settling in England and Ireland and to their eventual migration to guess where?

What ISN'T There 2.0

Source: Paul Stramer | By Anna Von Reitz

As I have noted before, many of the most interesting discoveries in the long bunny hole romp come from what ISN'T there.... that should be.

We have discussed the missing Declaration of War related to the Civil War and the lack of a Peace Treaty ending it. We have noted the lack of an Executive Order ending FDR's "Bank Holiday" before, but let's examine that a bit more. What does it mean?

What it means is that the banks we are familiar with aren't banks.

They are securities investment and holding companies.

And what have they "securitized" to promote their business and trade?

Securitization is a process of assigning a value to an asset and then trading certificates, stocks, bonds, mortgages and other "tokens" of ownership interest.

As our research into the Birth Certificate issue and our research into Foreclosures has yielded, the "U.S. Attorney Generals" have "securitized" the living people of this country and all our private property, too.

But "securitizing" living people is against the law and is both illegal and unlawful, because doing so enslaves them.

Both the international law and the Public Law of this country very clearly forbids it.

Not only is slavery forbidden, but since 1926, voluntary peonage is also forbidden by Public Law. You can't volunteer yourself into indentured servitude, even if you wanted to.

So how is it poss...


International agencies have disrupted attempts to transport almost 300 asylum seekers to Australia by boat blogfactory

International authorities, with the assistance of Australia, have disrupted at least 10 alleged attempts to transport almost 300 asylum seekers to Australia by boat in the past 14 months, documents obtained under freedom of information reveal.

The documents, from the federal home affairs department, record the number of foreign law enforcement agency (Flea) disruptions since 2013.

Flea disruptions were set up as one of three components of the Abbott governments border policy alongside boat turnbacks and offshore detention and processing.

Since the establishment of the new policy there have been 78 disruption operations involving 2,525 potential illegal immigrants the terms used in the documents referencing suspected passengers.

In the year to August there were 10 disruptions involving 297 people, the majority occurring in Indonesia but also in Sri Lanka and Malaysia.

Flea disruptions are operated by a multi-agency taskforce led by Australian federal police and reporting to the head of Australias border enforcement operation, air vice marshal Stephen Osborne, and seek to prevent vessels carrying asylum seekers from leaving international ports including Indonesia.

None of these simplistic categories or labels has any veritable bearing on the underlying political, social, economic and evil forces that conspired to drive Western Civilizations into a self-induced suicidal slaughter. The true history of World War I is rooted in the permanent struggle against satanic powers that seek the destruction of Christendom, the financial enslavement of humanity and the death of gentile society.

Furthermore, the Rothschilds have control of the three European news agencies, Wolff (est. 1849) in Germany, Reuters (est. 1851) in England, and Havas (est. 1835) in France.

Never Forget: Honour But Do Not Glorify

NOVEMBER 11, 2018

Source: Starship Earth: The Big Picture

Back home north of the 49th we couldnt miss this spectacle on the lawn of a local establishment this past week. It made quite an impact as there were too many flags to count, gently fluttering in the scattered breezes.

President Trump gave his address in France today to honour the fallen and those who remain in service, but too many North Americans dont understand the horrors of war. They are fortunate, and we hear comments from some like, Happy Veterans Daylike its a celebration.

That is an inappropriate response and I hope we will make an effort to educate the inexperienced so they dont make light of devastating times of pain, suffering, sacrifice, and mass murder.

Yes, honour the fallen, and thank those who still stand on guard, but do not glorify war. There is nothing glorious about the war effort and the effect it has on living souls and their families. At best it lines the pockets of the obscenely wealthy.

One can certainly take pride in their nation without glorifying historic events that never should have happened because they were based on lies, deception and manipulation. All wars have been part of a eugenics plan and about conquest and controlnot preserving liberty.

The controllers let us believe we were victorious but we never really achieved freedom. They saw to that. They were just more covert.

War is to be avoided and shunned at all costs.

France's Macron: Nationalism Is A Form Of Treason Qntra

While hosting an assembly of other fiat criminal organization leaders to commemorate the centennial of the 1918 Armistice, France's Macron stated that nationalism is a form of treason against "our values" (archived). He repeated tired Pantsuit talking points in a effort to cleave nationalism out of the definition of patriotism, by suggesting patriotism involves necessarily loving the Nation of Africa as much as one's own country. Further, the proponent of femal senior intergenerational marriage called for an era of progess built from "science", presumably using the common Pantsuit misconception of science as a belief system.


SPD Puts forth Its Manifesto to Federalize Europe Armstrong Economics

In Germany, the SPD is now pushing for a revolution in Europe for all member states to surrender their sovereignty to Brussels. They are arguing to federalize Europe and thereby create an integrated Europe of one government. It was the SPD that really won in the German 1918 Revolution. Under Weimar, the SPD was able to put its ideas of social justice into practice by influencing a number of progressive social changes while both in and out of government. The SPD re-introduced and overhauled the Bismarckian welfare state, providing protection for the disadvantaged, the unemployed, the aged, and the young.  The SPD is a full-blown Socialist State advocate following the ideas of Karl Marx.

At theaters across Europe, the SPD organized a symbolic proclamation to create a European Republic which was announced from the balcony of the Hamburg Thalia Theater, as actors released the new the manifesto written by Ulrike Gurot and Robert Menasse on Saturday. The aim of the project is to sensitize the public to the idea of a pan-European democracy and statehood. The occasion is the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War and the almost simultaneous proclamation of republics in various European countries.

The SPD manifesto calls for a Europe without nations and borders, thus to surrender sovereignty to prevent the resurgence of nationalism. EU Council President Donald Tusk has warned against the emergence of populist and anti-integration forces in Europe and the US. He has thus supported the federalization of Europe pointing out the isolationist tendencies in the USA and in Britain. The former head of the SPD Martin Schultz (19 March 2017  13 February 2018) also called for the federalization of Europe. They see no problem with suppressing 70% of the people who are not supporters of SPD.


Science Reveals That Having A Group of Kick-Ass Friends Can Truly Improve Your Health Awareness Act

In recent year,s there has been a significant shift in the focus Americans place on our overall health and well-being. This is a result of our failing health as a nation, as we battle an obesity epidemic, with an estimated 34% of American adults meeting the qualifications to be labeled as obese, and our risk of heart disease is at an incredible high, accounting for 1 of every 3 deaths.

In a world of fast food restaurants, microwave dinners, computer games, and Netflix marathons, it should come as no surprise that weve destroyed our health as a nation. Desperate to turn it around, our health and wellness industry is experiencing a considerable hike. Membership to health clubs or studios in the United States is up approximately 33.6% since 2008, and even the most questionable fast food companies are now offering new, healthy options.

However, in the midst of all this health and wellness spending, weve got some good news for all the ladies. Research shows that one of the best choices you can make for your overall health doesnt have to cost you a dime we just need to surround ourselves with amazing friends!

The research comes down to an understanding of our hormones, and how they respond to outside stimuli. When faced with times of stress or difficulty, we experience an influx of cortisol. This has been described by some as natures alarm system, triggering the well-known flight or fight response. However, elevated cortisol levels can have a negative impact on our health. They trigger the build-up of fatty tissues, increased blood pressure and a higher risk of heart attack or stroke.

When we spend time with other women and develop connections, a different hormone is triggered oxytocin. This is a feel good hormone, also known as the love hormone. An influx of oxytocin in our system has been associated with a number of great benefits including improved empathy and generosity, boosting our mood (helping to manage symptoms of anxiety, high stress, and depression), improved digestion, and lowered blood pressure.

The more time that you spend in the company of loved ones, the longer you will experience this all too important boost in oxytocin. Therefore, if youre feeling down in the dumps, or highly stressed there is a...

6 Methods for Losing Your Mind, And Building a New One Awareness Act

When it comes to living your life, things could be a bit complicated if you are struggling to figure out who you truly are. When it comes to finding yourself you must first lose yourself completely and a lot of people just cant handle the process.

Below I am going to go over some of the things you can do to explore yourself. While not all of these will be easy, they will help you let go and move forth so that you can uncover the things hidden within your being. If you want to become your true self you first have to work to figure out who that is, its not as complicated as most make it out to be. Lose your mind and your sense of self in order to uncover what is locked away.

6 Things You Should Do To Lose Yourself and Find Yourself At The Same Time:

1. Question everything that you think you know about yourself.

Dont accept things as you think they are. Really pick apart all that is before you so that you can better understand why you think and feel the ways that you do. Are your thoughts your own or do you feel and think certain things because others have molded you to do-so? This part might have you feeling a bit lost but that is to be expected.

2. Realize that perfection does not exist.

Come to terms with the fact that perfection does not exist. You are not perfect and neither is anyone else on this planet. We all have our own flaws.

3. Become more accepting of your true thoughts.

Think your own thoughts and accept them. Do not cast out the thoughts you might not think others would agree with. Only allow the things you feel are radiating from within your truest points reign through. This point will be hard to get to but once you have done it you will begin feeling a sense of longing.

4. Connect to your core.

Really connect with your truest self. Whether you can sense your truest self just yet or are still searching do not waste any time. Work with your emotions and let yourself dream. The more your inner voice speaks the more you will be able to uncover.

5. Meditate as often as possible.

Meditation is the key to it all. Through meditation, you can uncover so much. Allow your mind to relax and your let things wander until your truest form presents itself. The more you meditate the more you will find.

6. Get out in nature.

Spend some time in nature. Get out there barefoot and allow Mother Nature to speak to you. While this one might seem silly the more in nature we are the more freedom we can offer ourselves.

Once youve done these things you will most likely feel quite at peace. Wheth...


European Horror Story After the Shift


Pauline Kael Gets the Last Word in What She Said Truthdig RSS

If What She Said: The Art of Pauline Kael had been made about any other film critic, I believe Kael would have enjoyed it. But it couldnt have been made about any other critic.

The documentary directed by Rob Garver, which premiered Sunday, Nov. 11, at DOC NYC, hums along at a steady, pleasurable pace, combining snippets of interviews with Kael (the best ones with Dick Cavett on his television show) juxtaposed with snatches from films. The latter includes movies she praised and for which she helped create an audience (Bonnie and Clyde, Mean Streets, Carrie, Nashville, McCabe and Mrs. Miller, The Wild Bunch, The Godfather, The Godfather Part II, The Elephant Man, Band of Outsiders) as well as those she panned, angering mainstream America (The Sound of Music, West Side Story) and offending college-educated filmgoers (Blow-Up, 2001: A Space Odyssey).

Sarah Jessica Parker reads some of Kaels prose and does an admirable job of replicating her idiosyncratic rhythms. Voices of contemporary critics attest to the enormous impact and influence of Kael, who wrote for The New Yorker magazine from 1967 to 1991 and died in 2001. Filmmakersincluding Paul Schrader, Francis Ford Coppola, David O. Russell and Quentin Tarantinotalk about how her work shaped their own attitudes about film and its possibilities. Kaels daughter, Gina James, brings a little salt to her recollectionsit apparently wasnt easy to be a child of a geniusand the late Brian Kellow, author of Pauline Kael: A Life in the Dark (2011), adds nuance and perspective.

Garver, a New York-based writer and director of film shorts, loves his subject but knows when to keep his distance. His handling of the most famous controversies of Kaels career is concise and even-handed.

One example of this is Kaels famous essay in which she mercilessly diced Andrew Sarris interpretation of the auteur theory, particularly the part about the directors personality being a criterion for greatness. Sarris widow, the film critic Molly Haskell, says Kaels piece was almost slanderous. (For the historical record, Id like to note that there was no feud between Kael and Sarris, that her notes on the auteur theory were the only negative things she ever wrote about his work, and in Francis Davis Afterglow, Kael is quoted as saying, We both loved movies. We had that in common, and I enjoy reading him as I enjoy reading very few critics. He has genuine reactions to movies, and many critics dont. He picks things up and points things out.

And then there was the famous blast by Renata Adler in the New York Review of Books in 1976, reviewing Kaels collection, When the Lights Go Down: Jarringly, piece by piece, line by line, and without interruption, [its] worthless. And this just two years after Kael won the National Book Award for her previous Deeper Into Movies.



Hidden Cameras At Chicken Hatcheries Reveal a Dark Truth That Most People Refuse to Face Awareness Act

For years, vegetarians and meat eaters have argued over the treatment of farmed and factory animals that are used in the food industry. And while they continue to disagree, they could be missing some substantial proof of such atrocious acts.

Chicks just a few hours after being hatched are tossed into sorting and those who appear sickly are merely thrown away (alive). Females and males are separated as they move through different machines and the lucky females get to move to new farms where they will all be used until they cannot be used anymore while the males will be either used for meat or ground up right then and there depending on what kind of chickens they are.

Yes, I said they were ground up. In the past, many hatcheries opted to gas them but at the moment industrial sized grinders seem to be much more common. We do not often think about where the meat that we eat is coming from but we should. According to the Humane League, there are about 260 million male chicks being slaughtered each year this just in the US alone.

The short lives these chicks have are full of pain and suffering no matter how you look at it. Once they make their way to different factories from the hatcheries these chicks will spend their lives confined in warehouse-like buildings packed as full as possible. Many will become injured and forced to continue on or lie down and die while the rest walk all over their bodies. Broiler chickens, the ones most often used for meat are designed to grow rapidly and many struggle to even walk as their skeletons are unable to support their rapidly growing bodies.

Below you will find some videos that include footage that was obtained through hidden cameras. These videos show what life is like at the earliest stages for these chicks and while it isnt the worst of it, it is quite heartbreaking. Whether you are a meat eater or not you should be able to agree that they do not deserve to suffer in these ways. Wouldnt you rather your food have come from a more ethical source?

This Enchanting Christmas Video Was Banned From Television for the Absolute Dumbest Reason Ever Awareness Act

Ads can be deceiving, that is no secret. And while this ad did not make the cut to be on the television screen, it is still one that the whole world needs to watch and through social media that is finally happening.

This advert was made by Greenspeace but the group had given supermarket Iceland permission to use it as their Christmas campaign video. That being said, it was deemed to breach political advertising rules and will not be aired. Since Iceland became the first major UK supermarket to pledge for the removal of palm oil in their brands, this was the perfect video for them to use.

Clearcast who was in charge of approving or denying this video access on air said as follows in regards:

We assess all ads against the rules of the UK Code of Broadcast Advertising; Clearcast is not a regulator and we do not ban ads. The Iceland ad submitted to us is a Greenpeace film which has been appearing on the Greenpeace website for a number of months.

The specific rule Clearcast and the broadcasters have considered is:

An advertisement contravenes the prohibition on political advertising if it is:

An advertisement which is inserted by or on behalf of a body whose objects are wholly or mainly of a political nature.

Clearcasts concerns do not extend to the content or message of the ad.

As you can see, they did not have much to say on the matter at all. They marked it as too political and went about their business. While the company did not say that it was outright banned, they made it clear that they had no intent in allowing it to be aired. This video highlights how the use of palm oil in our products is strongly connected to deforestation in big ways.

In this ad video, you will see rang-tan the monkey playing around in a young girls r...


UK Families Take Part in Television Experiment Leaving Their Children Home Alone for 4 Days Awareness Act

As we get closer to the Christmas season, youre likely going to see the holiday classic Home Alone grace your television set once again. As funny as 8-year-old Kevins adventures are, most parents would agree the very idea of their child being left home alone in this situation is frightening at best.

A new television of show out of the UK, Alone at Home introduces just this situation as a social experiment, asking parents to leave their children home alone for a 4-day period of time. During this time, there are cameras wired up all through the home, allowing the parents, along with eager viewers, to watch exactly what happens.

While the producers, obviously are also watching the events within the home, there are clear rules about when and when not to get involved. In fact, the children are left to their own devices despite all of their arguments and mischief, only intervening if someone was seriously hurt, or if a situation could be classified as life or death.

Alone at Home was brought to life by UK station Channel 4. While some viewers appear to be highly excited, not everyone thought the concept was a creation of genius. In announcing the shows debut, The Guardian states, This new series takes an emerging trend UK parents are apparently among the most anxious in Europe and uses it as a fairly flimsy excuse for a social experiment: what happens if children are abandoned for four days to fend for themselves?

So, what really did happen? Four different families participated in the show, with children ranging in age from 8 to 16. Each of the families had their own reasons for participating, with parents reporting that they wanted their children to gain some independence, or that they recognized that they were bordering on helicopter parenting and were hoping the show would help them to step back and break that habit before it went too far.

In one episode, 13-year-old Laurel and 16-year-old Milly were recorded admitting that their mother, Natalie, acts like our slave sometimes. Its a statement that was proven to be an understatement as the girls, alongside their 114-year-old stepbrother Ethan, attempted to tackle some of the most basic household chores (after Ethan forced the girls to tidy up). The two werent even familiar with what soap should be added to the dishwasher. During the show they were forced to find ways to take care of themselves, calling taxis to get to and from school, and ordering food (eventually even attempting to cook for themselves).

The Signs of the Zodiac Ranked By Who Is Most Likely to Run Away From Love Awareness Act

The zodiac is known for its monthly horoscopes and general personality profiles. But did you know that you could also discover secrets and interesting facts about your love style?

Below I am going to go over the sign in order as ranked from most likely to run from love to least likely to run from love. While there are exceptions to this for each sign it should reign true for most. Where do you think your sign will end up on this list?


While you might not have guessed it, the Libra is easily the most willing to run from love. Libras dont like to let other people in. They close themselves off emotionally and tend to focus on bettering their own lives. While they like the idea of love they dont want to put forth the effort that comes with it.


Aquarius are also not very willing to let others in. They tend to care about people a lot but never make any moves. They are not good at expressing their emotions and it is something that really holds them back. While they might be willing to date, they dont often find the connections that they wish they could and because of that are for the most part quite off limits.


Sagittarius are flighty. They tend to get very close to people and then once emotions begin really flowing they jump ship. The Sagittarius is a sign that doesnt like to open up. They like to have fun and explore but are not often ready to settle down, so you cannot change them. However, for some reason also cannot help but feel compelled to try. Because of this a lot of heartbreak seems to follow them on their adventures in life.


Virgos are not usually into romance or lovey-dovey things. They are too afraid of being hurt and it really holds them back. They are some of the most vulnerable people of the zodiac and while they do criticize others a lot they do this so that they will not be criticized themselves. They like to put on a good show but are pretty soft at heart.


Geminis love love but also tend to get bored. They will fall head over heels for someone only to no longer be interested several months or years down the road. They like the idea of being in a relationship but also arent as willing to put in the work to make the relationship last. Because of their conflicting traits, they lie somewhere in the middle when it comes to dating. Sometimes you get lucky and they turn out to be amazing and other times they are hard to be with right from the very start.


Aries are often too work oriented to slow down and let love hit them in the face. They close themselves off and if someone comes into their life and mixes their world up they dont know what to do. While they dont always run, sometimes they do. They want to grow with the people who care about them but they also dont want to be held back or feel like the...

BEST OF THE WEB: Military coup plot uncovered in Germany - Sensational report claims special forces and military vets planned to execute 'unwanted' politicians 'en masse' Signs of the Times

A far-right underground network made up of members of Germany's elite commando force and military veterans planned to kill top politicians upon the collapse of order in the country, a sensational media report claims. German police have reportedly uncovered a clandestine far-right network which allegedly had "concrete plans" for what they called "Day X" - the moment when Germany's civil order would collapse, Focus magazine reported. The harrowing plan included bringing "unwanted" political figures to a remote place and killing them en masse. The names of people on the group's "hit list" have yet to be established, but it is thought that Dietmar Bartsch, head of the Left Party's parliamentary group, was one of those to be taken out.


Lady Gaga Truly Shocks the World With Comments About the Borderline Shooter That No One Should Ignore Awareness Act

Lady Gaga was recently given an award at the SAG-AFTRA awards ceremony and while her speech is long, it is a speech well worth hearing. As you may know, Lady Gaga is quite outspoken in regards to mental health and this was no exception.

She went over everything from her own struggles to the crisis that this world is so clearly in when it comes to mental health. Gaga touches on how uneducated many are about mental health and about how most are not getting the help that they might need. This is a topic that can be quite touchy especially after a shooting like the one in Thousand Oaks we just faced.

In this day and age, it is important not to point blame for these kinds of things in any one direction. There are lots of factors that go into something like this and while not every mentally ill person is going to do something terrible like what this man did, had he gotten the help he needed perhaps things would have gone over differently. At the end of the day even bringing awareness to mental illness without stigmatizing those who have mental illnesses is something we all need to work on.

Gaga mentioned as follows in her speech:

We need to share our stories so that global mental health no longer resides and festers in the darkness, she said. It is dangerous and we know this because amongst other shootings and acts of violence, just last night there was a shooting in Thousand Oaks by a veteran who was believed to have suffered from untreated post-traumatic stress disorder which is a mental issue. We know that this is dangerous, we know that its important and we have to pay attention to it.

No, not everyone with PTSD is going to go out and do terrible things to others but those with PTSD should be getting the help they need in regards to what theyre facing. We should not only bring up these topics when someone flies off the handle, we should be helping those with PTSD and other mental illnesses before the possibility of such even crosses our minds. When someone is suffering mentally it is much more complicated than most could imagine.

Mental illness is not the only problem in regards to these kind of things as I noted above but it is a big factor. This man might have been able to go down a different path if he had gotten the support he needed and that is something we all need to remember. Yes, he should be responsible for the things he did and I am in no way saying that it wasnt his fault but it is something to think about.

Please take the time to hear what Gaga had to say in the video below. We all need to work to make this world a better place and in helping those with mental illnesses we will be able to do that. Violent or not no one should have to suffer without treatment if they do not have to....


Scientist Finally Discover A Way To Upload Knowledge Directly to the Brain Awareness Act

There are some concepts in life that can be described as nothing short of science fiction, reserved for the creative worlds in our favorite books or on Hollywoods silver screen. However, is it possible that science may advance enough to make these crazy ideas a reality?

This is what many are asking after reading some of the latest research. A team of scientists from HRL Laboratories, LLC in Malibu, California is making positive strides forward in their effort to develop technology that would permit them to actually upload knowledge into a human brain. This would empower scientists to amplify the learning process.

The team began by studying the way that electric signals move within the brain, carrying information. They then took this information and used a technology known as transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) to transmit flight knowledge to a second group of participants.

We measured the brain activity patterns of six commercial and military pilots, and then transmitted these patterns into novice subjects as they learned to pilot an airplane in a realistic flight simulator, explained Dr. Matthew Phillips, one of the scientists behind the research in a press release. They studied the piloting abilities of the novice pilots before and after the information was uploaded using electrode-embedded head caps, measuring data such as the average G-force of the plane during landing. They discovered that those who received the brain stimulation performed better than the control group, who received a mock brain stimulation.

The findings of this study are a huge step forward in making this type of technology a reality in our daily lives. As we discover more about optimizing, personalizing, and adapting brain stimulation protocols, well likely see these technologies become routine in training and classroom environments, stated Dr. Phillips. Its possible that brain stimulation could be implemented for classes like drivers training, SAT prep, and language learning.

While this may be the first that you have heard of this technique, its not new to the scientific community. The process of stimulating connections in the brain to enhance learning has previously been used to aid patients recovering from strokes. By understanding the areas of the brain that are affected by the stroke, scientists have been able to speed up recovery and improve motor function through the use of tDCS. Meanwhile, research also shows that tDCS may show promise as a tool in the treatment of depression, although additional studies are required before this can be proven and put into practice.

BEST OF THE WEB: In bizarre WW1 centenary speech, Macron claims nationalism is evil because it 'erases moral values' Signs of the Times

Nationalism is a betrayal of patriotism, Emmanuel Macron said in his speech before the world leaders in Paris and caused a storm on Twitter, with the French President getting praise and bashing in equal parts. Macron delivered a powerful address during the celebrations of the 100th anniversary since the end of World War I in the French capital on Sunday, with Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin and other heads of state being among his audience. "Patriotism is the exact opposite of nationalism. Nationalism is a betrayal of patriotism," the French leader proclaimed, adding that nationalism erases the most important thing for any country: "its moral values." Comment: Specious, postmodernist, claptrap. With days of their 'bromance' far behind, Macron's jab might've been well directed at Trump, who previously proudly declared himself a nationalist and promotes the "America First" agenda.

UK unions sound alarm over talks to implant employees with microchips Signs of the Times

Trades Union Congress concerned over tech being used to control and micromanage Britain's biggest employer organisation and main trade union body have sounded the alarm over the prospect of British companies implanting staff with microchips to improve security. UK firm BioTeq, which offers the implants to businesses and individuals, has already fitted 150 implants in the UK. The tiny chips, implanted in the flesh between the thumb and forefinger, are similar to those for pets. They enable people to open their front door, access their office or start their car with a wave of their hand, and can also store medical data.


Richard Branson just launched a $3 million prize for a better air conditioner Fast Company

When people move out of poverty, one of the first things they buy is an air conditionerand the world cant handle the emissions that are going to come from an air conditioning boom. So Branson and the Indian government are launching the Global Cooling Prize to find a sustainable solution.

As incomes rise in cities in India, China, and other quickly growing economies, people tend to make three major purchases first: a TV, a refrigerator, and an air conditioner. The number of AC units may swell from 1.2 billion worldwide today to 4.5 billion by 2050and household air conditioning, alone, could push global warming up half a degree by the end of the century, according to a new report.

Google is searching Berlin for some trendy real estate to call home - a place that reflects the company's unofficial, recently scrapped motto, "Don't Be Evil." Hey, what about the ex-headquarters of East Germany's secret police? Our story begins innocently enough. The tech giant had originally planned to open its Google Campus startup hub in Berlin's uber hipster district of Kreuzberg - shocking, we know - but disaster soon struck.

CDC Warning: People with dirt on Clintons have 843% greater risk of suicide Signs of the Times

Atlanta, GA - According to a report from the Centers for Disease Control released on Thursday, people with inside, compromising knowledge of Bill and Hillary Clinton's financial and political dealings are 843% more likely to commit suicide. "We've never seen a single risk factor cause a spike of this magnitude," a CDC spokesperson told reporters.

The first two Holy Temples of the Israeli city ceased to exist centuries ago, having been demolished at the hands of the Babylonians and later by the Romans. Despite multiple calls to rebuild the temple, they have remained largely unheard. Biblical conspiracy theorists have voiced a warning that the erection of a third Holy Temple in Jerusalem, which religious activists have recently called for, inevitably carries Jesus Christ's imminent return. Jewish eschatological teachings have it that the Holy Temple will rise up from the ground for the third time when Armageddon nears.

Andrew Gillum Urges Officials to Count Every Vote In Florida Recount Truthdig RSS

As his gubernatorial race headed for a recount, Florida Democrat Andrew Gillum withdrew his concession speech from last Tuesday, noting that while his fate in the election may not change after the votes are recounted, the integrity of the countrys democratic process will be severely undermined if Republicans succeed in ending the process of counting every vote cast by Floridians.

I am replacing my earlier concession with an unapologetic and uncompromised call to count every vote, Gillum said in a news conference Saturday afternoon. We dont just get the opportunity to stop counting votes because we dont like the direction in which the vote tally is heading. That is not democratic and that is certainly not the American way.

<blockquote class=twitter-tweet data-lang=en><p lang=en dir=ltr>Andrew Gillum: &quot;Let me say clearly: I am replacing my words of concession with an uncompromised, and unapologetic call that we count every single vote.&quot; (via ABC) <a href=></a></p>&mdash; Kyle Griffin (@kylegriffin1) <a href=>November 10, 2018</a></blockquote>
<script async src= charset=utf-8></script>

Secretary of State Ken Detzner officially called for recounts of Floridas gubernatorial and Senate races after a noon deadline passed for all 67 of the states counties unofficial vote tallies, with both races deemed too close to call.

As of the noon deadline, Republican Rick Scottcurrently the Florida governorled Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson by only .15 percent, with about 12,500 more votes in the race for Nelsons seat. In the gubernatorial election, Republican Ron DeSantis led Gillum by .41 percent of the vote.

Both margins of victory triggered an automatic machine recount, to be completed by this coming Thursday. Should either race still have less than a .25 margin after the first recount, a manual recount will be completed.

The recounts follow Scotts claim that unethical liberals were trying to steal the election. Scott as well as President Donald Trump called the continued tallying into question, with the governor <ahref=


Florida recount finalized, Al Gore declared president! Signs of the Times

As Florida finally wrapped up its contentious recount of the votes tallied in the recent midterm elections, a winner was finally declared: Al Gore is now the president of the United States. The recount process at long last found the "missing votes" that would have handed Gore the presidency back in 2000, making him the official president of the country. "Well, it's about time," Gore said in his acceptance speech. "Thanks to all the fine people that made this happen. It really is too bad that the earth is going to be destroyed by fire by 2015--err, I mean, 2019, or else I could really savor my presidency." Gore will be granted two terms as US president, ousting President Trump and canceling the 2020 election. "We just assume he would have won again and ushered in a liberal golden age," said an election official. "So he's got 8 years to reclaim his lost time. Make the most of it, Al, and great job. You deserve it!"


Researchers have succeeded in creating a Bose-Einstein condensate in space Signs of the Times

In addition to the standard aggregate states of solid, liquid, and gas, matter can also have other states. A gas, for example, can be ionised at high temperatures to form a plasma. In 1995, researchers were able to prove that a fifth state of matter could be created at very low temperatures - the Bose-Einstein condensate. In quantum mechanics, the Bose-Einstein condensate is used to conduct quantum experiments. For example, it can be used to study gravitational waves or the Earth's gravitational field. Until now, however, this special state of aggregation could only be generated using high-vacuum apparatus on Earth and the state was extremely short-lived due to gravity. A German research team has now succeeded for the first time in generating and studying the Bose-Einstein condensate on board an unmanned space rocket - they published the results of their researched in journal Nature.

The WWI Lessons We Havent Learned Truthdig RSS

Trump is in Paris to commemorate the end of World War I, about which he knows almost nothing.

The outbreak of that war in 1914 took many contemporaries by surprise. That it would last four years, when leaders promised a quick victory, was another shock. That advanced machine guns and artillery would make mincemeat of formidable infantry and armor, killing some 11 million persons, was the biggest surprise of all. The casualty counts for the major battles are mind-bogglingnearly a quarter of a million dead and perhaps 700,000 wounded at Verdun alone, which was fought through 1916 in northeastern France.

We should draw the lesson that we should never credit politicians who promise us a short, glorious war. George W. Bush stood under a sign that said mission accomplished in 2003 after the invasion of Iraq. Some 6,000 U.S. troops are still in that country today, and ISIL, contrary to what Trump keeps saying, is not yet entirely defeated. As for glorious, surely you jest.

Another lesson is that small out of the way places can impel a war and should not be underestimated. Serbian nationalism and the attack by a Serbian nationalist on a high Austrian official, Grand Duke Ferdinand, helped provoke the war. Germany was aware that Russia backed the Serbs, and the Austro-Hungarian Empire rejected Serbian nationalism.

Germany could see a war coming, in which Russia would lash out at the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Germany was allied with Austria against Russia. Russia might well be able to count on its close diplomatic ally France. Since Austria-Germany was clearly going to war, willy-nilly, against Russia-France, Berlin thought it wise to neutralize France first with an invasion. The easy way was to go through Belgium, but Britain had warned that Belgium is a British sphere of influence. When German armies ignored London and invaded France through Belgium, the British felt obliged to come in on the side of France. (Though to be fair, letters of the British king at that time show he was eager to take on his cousin the Kaiser.)

Just as Serbia set events in chain then, so too could Iran today. Trump and Pompeo have spoken of crushing Iran. But Russia and China dont want Iran to be erased. Neither do Syria (pro-Iran) or Iraq, which even Trump gave a waiver because trade with Iran is crucial to its future.

Technological innovations lengthened the war and made it dangerous. In Iraq, the US faced roadside bombs, which killed or wounded thousands.

RV/Intelligence Alert: "Soften" -- November 11, 2018 Operation Disclosure

Operation Disclosure

RV/INTELLIGENCE ALERT - November 11, 2018

(Disclaimer: The following is an overview of the current situation based on intelligence leaks received from several sources which may or may not accurate. Other confirmed sources may also be included in this overview.)

Massive voter fraud during the US midterm elections is set to be revealed via a massive sting operation.

This will further expose the Cabal-infested government which will also lead to the current fiat financial system being exposed as a scheme to keep the world in debt and poverty.

The integrity of the stock market would then be ruined thus causing it to collapse and therefore making way for the new quantum financial system (QFS).

The private currency redemption event (RV) will begin during this time.

The way of life as we know it will be exposed as a lie to keep us enslaved for the Cabal to profit.

This would cause worldwide public anger and unrest which is when GESARA will come into play to soften the blow.

The main goal of the Alliance is to provide reason to the global population for sudden change.

GESARA will be introduced at the right time when the world needs it.

The Horrors Humans Have Inflicted on the Planets Wilderness Truthdig RSS

Only 23% of the planets habitable terrestrial surface now remains as undisturbed wilderness, thanks to the spread of the human horde.

A century ago, as the human population explosion began, 85% of the world was undisturbed living space for all the other species. Yet between 1993 and 2009 in the years that followed hard on the first global summit to consider the state of the planetary environment  an aggregation of areas of wilderness larger than India was delivered over to human exploitation, scientists warn in the journal Nature.

These results are nothing short of a horror story for the planets last wild places, said James Watson, a scientist at the University of Queensland and with the Wildlife Conservation Society.

The loss of wilderness must be treated in the same way we treat extinction. There is no reversing, once the first cut enters. The decision is forever.

Ocean impact

Professor Watson and colleagues argued in August that humans had in some way poisoned, polluted, exploited or disturbed almost all the planets oceans: only 13% could now be classified as undisturbed.

Now he and others have addressed the state of the wild terrestrial soils and rocks. Take Antarctica essentially uninhabited, and with no terrestrial wildlife out of the equation, and the scale of planetary devastation becomes more stark: humans have now left their mark on 77% of the worlds living space.

And the remaining wilderness is unevenly distributed: just 20 nations hold or govern 94% of the remaining marine and terrestrial wilderness areas. Russia, Canada, Australia, the US and Brazil host 70% of these unspoiled spaces.

Professor Watson and many others have repeatedly argued that humankind continues to put the worlds wildlife at risk. A new study by the World Wide Fund for Nature highlights the scale of destruction, but repeated surveys by teams of researchers on all continents have pointed up the same danger.

The combination of human intrusion into the wilderness and the spectre of climate change is a disaster for the 10 million or so species, most of them as yet unidentified, with which humans share the planet.



Book review of Joseph Tainter's 'Collapse of Complex Societies' Signs of the Times

TLDR: Joseph Tainter argues that the root cause of civilizational collapse is because of over-investment into and declining marginal returns on complexity. Societies invest in complexity to solve their problems and typically need to expend ever more organizational and physical energy to maintain that level of complexity; eventually, this expenditure undermines their material base, opens up a large potential gap where they could reap the exact same benefits but at a lower level of complexity (and cost), and the likelihood of collapse converges to one. You can read excellent summaries of the book by Ugo Bardi, and Joseph Tainter himself. Introduction Ruins and relics of long dead civilizations, now overtaken by vines of verdant chaos, or buried under the shifting sands of time, hold a certain morbid fascination for us - these once great, hubristic and monumental societies that flourished and then collapsed, leaving only ruins and legends in their wake. We cannot help entertaining...

There are contingency plans being made, there are discussions being held behind the scenes as to what support our armed forces will do, said deputy defense minister Tobias Ellwood.

The armed forces stand ready to support Britain on a practical basis, he added.

The minister admitted that a no-deal Brexit could cause chaos in Britain and many people may require the help of the armed forces to cope with emergencies in their daily lives.

With the transition from Brexit, if there is a requirement to provide assistance were looking right across the full spectrum of requirements to make sure that we are prepared, said Ellwood.

Chief of Britains Defense Staff General Sir Nicholas Carter also confirmed that there were contingency plans for an uneasy withdrawal from the EU.

What we always do is make sensible contingency plans for all sorts of eventualities, said Carter, adding, At this stage, I think people are confident there will be a deal, if theres not one then we stand ready to help in any way we can.

With Brexit talks reportedly stalled over a disagreement between British and EU negotiators on the future situation of the Irish land border, the UK faces a real chance of leaving the EU without a deal.

The scenario could have dire economic and social consequences for Britain with some even warning that there could be a civil unrest on the streets as people may face acute shortage of some basic items, including food and medicine.

'Big Cat?!' Russian taxi driver shocked as a passenger brings leopard in cab Signs of the Times

Modern taxi drivers are used to having to accommodate passengers' requests, from XXL cabs to being pet-friendly. But one Russian driver was left mind-boggled when a passenger told him he'd be boarding with his... leopard. According to local news outlet Homsk, the driver, from the Russian city of Yekaterinburg, received a call with an unheard-of request along the lines of: "I will go with a big cat in my arms (leopard)." That turned out to actually be the case as the passenger showed up with the feline predator, who sat on his owner's knees in the passenger seat for the duration of the trip.

A senior Turkish journalist has revealed bits from a secret audio tape that was allegedly recorded from the brutal assassination of dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, saying the slain man begged for his life before he died at the hand of killers. 

Nazif Karaman, head of investigation department at the Daily Sabah, a Turkish newspaper, said Saturday that people who killed Khashoggi put a bag on his head to strangle and suffocate him.

Im choking, put this bag away from my head, Im scared of claustrophobia, Khashoggi said before he died, according to Karaman who shared the information with the Qatari-based news channel Al Jazeera.

Saudi Arabia used Israeli technology to track dissidents and critics blogfactory

US whistle-blower Edward Snowden yesterday claimed that Saudi Arabia used Israeli spyware to target murdered Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Addressing a conference in Tel Aviv via a video link, Snowden claimed that software made by an Israeli cyber intelligence firm was used by Saudi Arabia to track and target Khashoggi in the lead up to his murder on 2 October inside the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul.

Snowden told his audience: How do they [Saudi Arabia] know what his [Khashoggis] plans were and that they needed to act against him? That knowledge came from the technology developed by NSO, Israeli business daily Globes reported. Snowden accused NSO of selling a digital burglary tool, adding it is not just being used for catching criminals and stopping terrorist attacks, not just for saving lives, but for making money [] such a level of recklessness [] actually starts costing lives, according to the Jerusalem Post.

Snowden made famous in 2013 for leaking classified National Security Agency (NSA) files and exposing the extent of US surveillance added that Israel is routinely at the top of the US classified threat list of hackers along with Russia and China [] even though it is an ally. Snowden is wanted in the US for espionage, so could not travel to Tel Aviv to address the conference in person for fear of being harmed.

The Israeli firm to which Snowden referred NSO Group Technologies is known for developing the Pegasus software which can be used to remotely infect a targets mobile phone and then relay back data accessed by the device. Although NSO claims that its products are licensed only to legitimate government agencies for the sole purpose of investigating and preventing crime and terror, this is not the first time its Pegasus software has been used by Saudi Arabia to track critics.

It was generated by a rock from an asteroid that hit the atmosphere at about 72,000 km/h. The meteor overflew the province of Jan. It began at an altitude of about 90 km and ended at a height of around 42 km. The event was recorded in the framework of the SMART project (University of Huelva) from the meteor-observing stations located at La Hita (Toledo), Calar Alto (Almeria), La Sagra (Granada) and Sevilla.

From multiple sources we hear conflicting voices, RV/GCR vs Manna World Trust-trade with our birth certificates..

This makes the confusion only big ones where people want to choose a camp because they think they are safe and not empty-handed when GESARA is a fact.

Rest assured, everyone will participate in the prosperity funds, which makes Migration among other things totally superfluous as an economic migrant unsolicited western countries wants to flood.

All migrants and refugees can safely return to their home country to help build their own country and make it an oasis.

Manna World Holdings Trust --- Fraud and Piracy Explained

Source: Paul Stramer | By Anna Von Reitz

First, the crime of fraud has no statute of limitations. If I discover a fraud that happened in 1860 (and I have) and I report it and take exception to it today, the crime and all the subsequent history tainted by it, is still very much alive, still actionable, and still deserving remedy, cure, and divine service.

As a result, when something begins in error and fraud, it ends in the same status. No progress toward any actual and honest solution is made until the fraud comes to an end.

As long as FDR's "Bank Holiday" continues, the fraud continues. As long as the "State of Emergency" continues, the fraud continues. As long as the "United States" continues to run amok, so does the rest of the world. And there is no way to fix this or end this condition absent the end of the fraud itself.

Second, the crime of piracy also has no statute of limitations. If my great-grandfather's gold was stolen by pirates (thieves of any sort acting in international jurisdiction) he is still the lawful owner and I, as his heir, am still owed the return of that gold from Interpol or any other international law enforcement agency that obtains custody of the stolen property.

Now those who are responsible for this ongoing Mess have sought to make things easy on themselves and difficult for the rest of us by trying to seize all private assets and to dump our private assets into trusts, which are then combined and commingled into larger trusts----all controlled by them.

While they try to justify this as the act of valid Trustees, the actual owners and purported donors never elected them to the job and this is in fact just more piracy, more unlawful seizure of our assets in international jurisdiction, more false claims of rights and interests...


The Dollar's days as global reserve currency are numbered says world's largest asset manager Signs of the Times

Have BlackRock CEO Larry Fink and Russian President Vladimir Putin been comparing notes? In comments that sound eerily similar to a warning issued by Putin, who warned during a speech last month that the US risked undermining the dollar's reserve currency status with its sanctions regime, the CEO of the world's largest asset-management firm said Tuesday during a panel discussion at the New Economic Forum in Singapore that the US dollar's status as the world's dominant currency wouldn't last forever. And instead of citing external factors like China's expanding economic clout and influence, or an insurgent Russia, Fink pointed to the widening US budget deficit as the biggest risk to the dollar's status as the global hegemon. And while it might not happen tomorrow, or next year, over time, as US interest rates rise and the federal government strains under its tremendous debt burden, the creditors who were once eager to buy up Treasury bonds will gradually disappear.


Striking 100yo audio of moment WWI's guns fell silent Signs of the Times

It's hard to imagine what the end of World War I must have felt like, but we can at least get a sense for what it sounded like: A 100-year-old recording captured the war's violent final seconds - followed by a stirring silence. Made near the River Moselle, which flows through France, Luxembourg, and Germany, the recording documents the moments leading up to the war's official end, at 11 am on November 11, 1918. The audio begins with loud gunfire and explosions, followed by an abrupt but undoubtedly welcomed silence after the clock struck 11.

Anti-smoking campaigns aren't new: The Nazis' forgotten drive to eliminate tobacco from the Reich Signs of the Times

The Third Reich viewed tobacco as a threat to the health of the "chosen folk." Nazi Germany's well-known obsession with creating a master Aryan race led to many atrocities. But from these same sinister motives came research that may have had health benefits for the German people during World War II-studies on the dangers of smoking that led to the most advanced anti-tobacco campaign of its time. Unfortunately, the campaign was only concerned with protecting the health of Aryan Germans. "Nazi Germany was governed by a health-conscious political elite bent on European conquest and genocidal extermination," writes Stanford researcher Robert Proctor in his book, The Nazi War on Cancer, "and tobacco at the time was viewed as one among many 'threats' to the health of the chosen folk."

Some photos show that there were two half-naked women on the road as Trump's motorcade drove along the Champs Elysees in Paris. The US president was heading to a ceremony marking the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I. Despite a massive police presence along the route to the Arc de Triomphe, the screaming protester managed to get in Trump's way and came within a few meters of the motorcade. Several officers had to intervene to remove the activist from the road.


Toronto-born Canadian alleged to be behind ISIS's high-profile cyber attacks Signs of the Times

An Islamic State-linked media outlet says a Canadian man was behind the terror group's highest-profile cyber attacks, including the embarrassing takeover of the Twitter account of the U.S. military's Central Command. The Canadian fighter, who is said to have been killed by a drone strike in Syria, also allegedly penetrated bank computers and used the "spoils" to fund their fighting and hacked the U.S. Department of Defense, airports, international media organizations and the accounts of "hundreds" of U.S. soldiers. Terrorism experts say the Arabic-language notice likely reveals a previously unknown Canadian convert who left Toronto to join the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant in its ongoing war. The Toronto-born man "managed to bring blessed victories for the Caliphate state by carrying out electronic attacks that have made the enemies taste defeat and failure," according the notice, as translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).

'Strengthen the multipolar world': Putin positive on Macron's 'European army' plan bashed by Trump Signs of the Times

"Europe is ... a powerful economic union and it is only natural that they want to be independent and ... sovereign in the field of defense and security," Putin told RT in Paris where world leader gathered to mark the centenary of the end of WWI. He also described the potential creation of a European army "a positive process," adding that it would "strengthen the multipolar world." The Russian leader even expressed his support to French President Emmanuel Marcon, who recently championed this idea by saying that Russia's stance on the issue "is aligned with that of France" to some extent.

China's oil imports surge to record high, drops US suppliers Signs of the Times

China's crude oil imports averaged 9.61 million barrels a day last month, customs data cited by Reuters has revealed, with the agency noting the amount is the highest on record. Once again, it was the independent refiners, or teapots, that drove the increase as they seek to fulfill their import quotas before they expire. The total October volume of imports hit 40.80 million tons, of which teapots imported 8.22 million tons. Yet this was lower than the teapots' intake as forecast by S&P Platts last month, which was nine million tons. It was, however, substantially higher than the 7.26 million tons independent Chinese refiners imported in September.

What is that weird head sensation called ASMR? Signs of the Times

Many people experience Autonomous sensory meridian response (ASMR), a relaxing sensation often triggered by gentle whispering which creates a "low-grade euphoria" characterized by "a combination of positive feelings and a distinct static-like tingling sensation on the skin. We are finally working out what it is and that it can be good for you. The phenomenon first came to people's attention in 2007, in an online forum thread titled "weird sensation feels good". Many names were suggested, notably "attention-induced head orgasm" -- a misnomer because the feeling is not as sudden or short-lived as an orgasm, and is distinct from sexual arousal. The term that stuck was coined in 2010 by cybersecurity expert Jennifer Allen: "autonomous sensory meridian response", or ASMR. She wanted something that represented the key elements of the sensation, but that sounded scientific, so people wouldn't be embarrassed to talk about it. It worked: those who experience the phenomenon are now a...


Western media suddenly 'discovers' Saudi war crimes in Yemen from Khashoggi fallout Signs of the Times

Nothing illustrates the cynical and deceitful nature of Western "journalism" better than the recent, apparent US-Saudi fallout in the wake of the alleged death of Washington Post Saudi correspondent, Jamal Khashoggi. Khashoggi allegedly disappeared and has been reported killed at the hands of Saudi consulate staff in Istanbul, Turkey. Of course, the US, UK, EU, Turkey, and Saudi Arabia are among the most dubious actors in modern geopolitics. Ascertaining the truth regarding the events surrounding Khashoggi may ultimately turn out to be an insurmountable task. But the various narratives and reactions of Western political and media circles still provides us insight into the true character of Western international relations including extreme hypocrisy regarding human rights, the use and abuse of Western media platforms to selectively cover events around the globe to favor Western interests, and the ultimate fate that awaits other US "allies."


US-Mexico border: Trump's rules of engagement for US troops to mirror the IDF in Gaza Signs of the Times

The intent behind Trump's new rules of engagement and considerable militarization of the U.S. border appears to be greenlighting the U.S. military to function as an IDF-style military police force whenever the next "threat" emerges, whether it be "foreign invaders" or "internal enemies." Since President Donald Trump first directed the outrage of his supporters at a Central American migrant caravan making its way towards the United States a little over a week ago, his plan to deploy between 5,200 and 15,000 active-duty U.S. soldiers to the border has provoked mixed reactions within the United States. However, Trump's more recent announcement that armed U.S. soldiers have been instructed to target any migrants who resort to throwing stones as though they were firing rifles has evoked an even wider range of reactions. On Thursday afternoon, Trump detailed in a speech that "Anybody [in the caravan] throwing stones, rocks, like they did to Mexico and the Mexican military, Mexican...


The New York Times sets up a smear campaign against Julian Assange Signs of the Times

A pair of blaring headlines appearing in Friday's edition of the New York Times purported to show that the newspaper had obtained damning new evidence of collusion between WikiLeaks, the Trump campaign and the Russian government to damage the campaign of Hillary Clinton in 2016. The latest round of smears appearing in the Times, the journalistic mouthpiece of the Democratic Party and sections of the military-intelligence apparatus opposed to Trump, is aimed at preparing public opinion for an eventual indictment on espionage charges of WikiLeaks founder and publisher Julian Assange, preparations for which are already in full swing. The Times articles appeared amid widespread media speculation that special counsel Robert Mueller could begin handing down indictments soon. The government of Ecuador, eager to curry favor with Washington, is rapidly moving to expel Assange from its embassy in London, where he has been trapped since he first sought political asylum there in 2012.

The US is rapidly going broke Signs of the Times

Those who focus on the U.S. national debt (and I'm one of them) keep wondering how long this debt levitation act can go on. The U.S. debt-to-GDP ratio is at the highest level in history (106%), with the exception of the immediate aftermath of the Second World War. At least in 1945, the U.S. had won the war and our economy dominated world output and production. Today, we have the debt without the global dominance. The U.S. has always been willing to increase debt to fight and win a war, but the debt was promptly scaled down and contained once the war was over. Today, there is no war comparable to the great wars of American history, and yet the debt keeps growing. In a new Weekly Standard article, the celebrated James Grant of Grant's Interest Rate Observer reviews not only the current debt and deficit situation but provides an overview of the U.S. national debt since George Washington and Alexander Hamilton. Grant makes the point that the debt has been increased and decreased on a...


The war party winning midterm elections is accelerating the transition to a multi-polar world Signs of the Times

The outcome of the American midterm elections gives us an even more divided country, confirming that the United States is in the midst of a deep crisis within its establishment. The midterm elections represented a substantial draw for Democrats and Republicans, a defeat for the Trump administration and a clear victory for the "war party" in Washington. The House of Representatives ended up in the hands of the Democrats, who managed to overturn the results of 2016 by winning 26 seats and bringing their majority to 219, with the Republicans with 193 seats. The Republicans, despite the feared "blue wave", have increased their representation in the Senate, with 51 senators against the 45 of the Democrats. In terms of governors, Republicans remain ahead, with 25 red states against 21 blue.

They are coming: Migrant caravan continue their journey to US border Signs of the Times

The Central American migrant caravan has just begun another leg of their journey to the US border hastily reinforced by the Army and Marine Corps. The migrants previously made a days-long stop in Mexico City. The caravan, made up mostly of Hondurans, but also nationals of other Central American countries, is now on the move towards the United States border. Migrants resumed their march north on Saturday morning after spending almost a week in Mexico City. A Ruptly video shows dozens of people waiting for trains in Mexico subway or boarding heavy trucks or buses somewhere outside the city. Others are seen using cars to continue their journey. To get there, migrants will have to travel some 1,700 miles (2,735km) to the northwest, a much longer route than to the nearest US border crossing at McAllen, Texas, which many consider to be the safest option.


British government spinelessly refuses to offer asylum to Asia Bibi - because they won't risk offending British Islamists Signs of the Times

It's been a while since I expressed my utter disgust with the British authorities. This is no doubt a failing on my part, since they do seem so very determined to earn the contempt of every reasonable citizen in as many ways as possible. My apologies. I really should make more of an effort to keep up. So here goes. According to the Huffington Post, the British Government has refused to offer asylum to Asia Bibi, a Christian farm labourer who has just had her conviction for blasphemy quashed by the Supreme Court of Pakistan. The mother-of-five spent eight years on death row for "insulting the prophet Mohammed" - something which is alleged to have happened during an argument with some of her neighbours. Since the announcement of her acquittal on the grounds of there being insufficient evidence, there has been a wave of violence from the Islamist mob, and it has become abundantly clear that she and her family cannot stay in the country and remain safe. This is a clear case of...


NATO military drills in Norway alarmed Russia blogfactory

Tens of thousands of NATO troops are deployed to Norway for one of the biggest military exercises of the military bloc since the end of the Cold War.

Norway will host the so-called Trident Juncture 18 from Thursday, October 25, to November 7.

The military exercises, with the declared goal of training to defend NATO member states against potential threats, involve some 50,000 soldiers, 10,000 vehicles, 65 ships, and 250 aircraft from 31 countries.

In recent years, Europes security environment has significantly deteriorated, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg claimed. Trident Juncture sends a clear message to our nations and to any potential adversary. NATO does not seek confrontation but we stand ready to defend all allies against any threat.

The head of NATOs Allied Joint Force Command, US Navy Admiral James Foggo, also said the exercise was intended to show NATO is capable to defend against any adversary. Not a particular country, anyone.

Despite those broad assertions, NATO drills are practically aimed at Russia. The Western military alliance severed ties with Moscow in 2014, after the Crimean Peninsula voted in a referendum to be attached to Russian territory.

Accusing Moscow of meddling in an armed conflict in Ukraines east, NATO has been sending troops and weapons to Russias western borders while simulating military confrontations with Russia by staging massive drills in the region. Moscow denies that it is involved in the Ukrainian conflict.

NATO claims that it intends to protect its members in Eastern Europe against the so-called Russia threat. Moscow, generally unsettled by NATOs move eastward, dismisses the allegation that it poses a threat to regional countries and says the US-led bloc is spreading Russophobia.

In addition to NATOs 29 member countries, Norways neighbors Sweden and Finland will be participating in the Trident Juncture exercises.

Two Russian and two Belarusian military observers have been invited to watch the maneuvers.

The core exercise area is 1,000 kilometers from the Russian border, and air operations could take place up to 500 kilometers away from the border, Norwegian Lieutenant General Rune Jakobsen said.

There should not be any reason for the Russians to get scared or see this as anything other than a defensive exercise, he said.


Yet, the Russian Embassy in Oslo said it viewed Trident Juncture 18 as an anti-Russian exercise that would worsen Norways relations with Moscow and could escalate tensions...


Tensions rise between Mueller and Manafort over level of cooperation Signs of the Times

Talks between Special Counsel Robert Mueller and former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort have grown increasingly tense over Manafort's apparent lack of cooperation with the investigation, according to multiple sources familiar with the matter. Prosecutors from Mueller's office have been asking Manafort about a wide range of topics in nearly a dozen meetings since Manafort agreed to cooperate in September, sources said, but the Mueller team is "not getting what they want," said one source with knowledge of the discussions. The consequences of failing to fully cooperate could be dire when it comes time for Manafort to be sentenced. "Should it be judged...that the defendant has failed to cooperate fully, has intentionally given false, misleading or incomplete information or testimony...the defendant will not be released from his pleas of guilty but the Government will be released from its obligations..." his plea agreement reads.

Both the US and Iran condemn Bahrain's imprisonment of Shi'ite opposition leader Signs of the Times

The United States has voiced concern over Bahrain's sentencing of the head of the country's Shi'ite opposition movement to life in prison, a move which was also condemned by Iran. "The United States is concerned by the verdict sentencing Ali Salman to life in prison," State Department spokesman Robert Palladino said on November 8. Washington will not seek to impose sanctions over the matter, he said, but it will continue to raise concerns when human rights issues arise in the Persian Gulf ally. Bahrain, an island state across the gulf from Iran, is home to the U.S. Navy's Fifth Fleet. "The United States will continue to engage regularly with the government of Bahrain on a range of shared interests, including the importance of safeguarding fundamental freedoms and human rights," Palladino said. Bahrain on November 4 sentenced Salman, who headed the now-banned Al-Wefaq movement, for allegedly spying on behalf of rival gulf state Qatar.

How the EPA and the Pentagon downplayed a growing toxic threat of perfluoroalkyl substances Signs of the Times

A family of chemicals - known as PFAS and responsible for marvels like Teflon and critical to the safety of American military bases - has now emerged as a far greater menace than previously disclosed. The chemicals once seemed near magical, able to repel water, oil and stains. By the 1970s, DuPont and 3M had used them to develop Teflon and Scotchgard, and they slipped into an array of everyday products, from gum wrappers to sofas to frying pans to carpets. Known as perfluoroalkyl substances, or PFAS, they were a boon to the military, too, which used them in foam that snuffed out explosive oil and fuel fires. It's long been known that, in certain concentrations, the compounds could be dangerous if they got into water or if people breathed dust or ate food that contained them. Tests showed they accumulated in the blood of chemical factory workers and residents living nearby, and studies linked some of the chemicals to cancers and birth defects.


Creepy porn lawyer Avanetti releases out-of-context video of Tucker Carlson yelling at 'gay Latino man' Signs of the Times

Celebrity lawyer Michael Avenatti is accusing Fox News conservative host Tucker Carlson of assaulting a Latino man in a bar. Carlson says the man started it by calling his daughter a whore and a c*nt. Avenatti has posted a video clip of the incident on Twitter, saying he is investigating "an alleged assault on a gay latino immigrant committed by T.Carlson and/or member of his inner circle" at a Virginia County club in October. The video starts with the heated argument between Carlson, his entourage and a man seated at the bar already in full swing. "You need to get the f*ck out of here," Carlson can be heard saying repeatedly with the man responding: "I won't do that. I'm not going to get out of here." While Carlson's companions seem agitated, the Fox host himself maintains relative composure throughout the video and is not seen physically assaulting the other man. After a bit of tense verbal back-and-forth, one of Carlson's support men grabs the alleged Latino immigrant, forcing...

Norwegian residents complain about conduct of Nato troops blogfactory

Halfway through NATOs large-scale Trident Juncture 18 war games, Norwegian residents have already filed nearly 500 complaints against participating soldiers, alleging damage to local infrastructure, trampled farmland, traffic accidents and public defecation.

The complaints have been sent to the Norwegian Armed Forces, which have set up an Environment and Damage Department to keep track of exercise-related incidents disturbing the local population.

Trident Juncture Spokesman Eystein Malkenes Kvarving, speaking to the Norway-based NRK channel, apologized for the mishaps and promised for the complaints to be taken seriously.

Sometimes unfortunate things happen which are not planned. Of course, it is not okay for people to relieve themselves in public areas. I would like to apologize for it.

Furthermore, Environment and Damage Department head Marianne Bo detailed that complaints about public defecation were primarily about incidents that had occurred near schools and sports facilities by allegedly American and Swedish soldiers.

This is terrible, its about having common decency. We have to clean up after soldiers who have relieved themselves, adding that we actually have a system for treating this. The soldiers bring their equipment to clean up afterwards. But next time we have a major exercise, we must tighten this.

The exercises also made headlines on Thursday after a Norwegian Navy frigate collided with an oil tanker near an island chain off Norways western coast, injuring seven crew members. The damaged ship has since been abandoned and is awaiting further assistance.

The war games, which started on October 25 and will end on November 23, have assembled troops from 31 NATO allies and partners along with 250 aircraft, 65 vessels and up to 10,000 land vehicles primarily in central and eastern Norway.

According to official statements, the exercises seek to train troops of the NATO Response Force  and improve joint-force cooperation. Russia, however, has expressed concerns, describing the maneuvers as anti-Russian.

Ahead of the centenary of the end of the war, the Lions of the Great War bronze statue, depicting an Indian soldier in Sikh traditional dress, was unveiled in the UK town of Smethwick, Staffordshire on November 4. Commissioned by the Guru Nanak Gurdwara Smethwick Sikh temple, the 10-foot statue was targeted by vandals less than a week after it was unveiled and days before the nation prepared to mark the 100th anniversary of the 1918 Armistice.


South Korean sends 200 tons of tangerines in good will gesture following North's gift of fancy mushrooms Signs of the Times

Seoul has returned the favor after receiving a gift of pine mushrooms from Pyongyang, sending 20,000 boxes of rare tangerines north in the biggest cross-border shipment of goods in almost a decade. North Koreans will soon have an opportunity to enjoy the taste of tangerines as four cargo planes took off from South Korea on Sunday. The fruit was chosen as a gift because it is not a common delicacy in the North. "Tangerines were chosen because they are in season at the moment, and it is a kind of fruit that is rare in North Korea," presidential spokesman Kim Eui-kyeom said, as quoted by Yonhap. The 200-ton present was sent in response to Kim Jong-un's gesture of good will after the third high-level summit between the leadership of South and North Korea. Back then, Kim gifted some two tons of expensive pine mushrooms to the South. However, the gift had only recently been declared clear of radiation and safe to eat.

UK governments crocodile tears over burning of Grenfell Tower effigy backfire

10 November 2018

Millions were sickened by a vile video of a group of backward racists burning an effigy of Grenfell Tower on bonfire night, November 5.

The cardboard model had cut out paper figures with brown faces, looking out of the tower windows, with the perpetrators making derogatory comments about Grenfell Tower residents. As it is set on fire, one participant is heard saying, Help me, help me! and Jump out the window! Another says to laughter, in a reference to the failed stay put policy of the fire brigade, Stay in your flat, we are coming to get you. In a reference to a woman wearing a niqab, one states, The little ninja is getting it at the minute, Another comments, Thats what happens when they dont pay their rent.

According to reports, the video was circulated privately among those involved on WhatsApp, but soon ended up being posted on social media and going viral where it provoked widespread anger and condemnation.

The faces of many of those involved are seen in the video and five men from south and south-east London handed themselves in to the police on Monday night. Another man, aged 19, was arrested Tuesday after attending a south London police station. All six were arrested and charged on suspicion of a public order offence before being released under investigation.

Digital detox: The health benefits of unplugging & unwinding Signs of the Times

Recent studies have shown that 90% of Americans use digital devices for two or more hours each day and the average American spends more time a day on high-tech devices than they do sleeping: 8 hours and 21 minutes to be exact. If you've ever considered attempting a "digital detox", there are some health benefits to making that change and a few tips to make things a little easier on yourself. Many Americans are on their phones rather than playing with their children or spending quality family time together. Some people give up technology, or certain aspects of it, such as social media for varying reasons, and there are some shockingly terrific health benefits that come along with that type of a detox from technology. In fact, more and more health experts and medical professionals are suggesting a periodic digital detox; an extended period without those technology gadgets.

Day X: Germany's far-right commandos plotted to kill top politicians when order 'falls' Signs of the Times

A far-right underground network made up of members of Germany's elite commando force and military veterans planned to kill top politicians upon the collapse of order in the country, a sensational media report claims. German police have reportedly uncovered a clandestine far-right network which allegedly had "concrete plans" for what they called "Day X" - the moment when Germany's civil order would collapse, Focus magazine reported. The harrowing plan included bringing "unwanted" political figures to a remote place and killing them en masse. The names of people on the group's "hit list" have yet to be established, but it is thought that Dietmar Bartsch, head of the Left Party's parliamentary group, was one of those to be taken out.

US: 1 Dead, 164 sickened in ongoing turkey salmonella outbreak, 35 states affected Signs of the Times

Just two weeks out from the biggest turkey-focused day of the year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported Thursday that 164 people across 35 states have fallen ill from Salmonella-tainted raw turkey. The CDC said that 74 more people were reported sick in the ongoing outbreak since its last report in July, and the outbreak has been linked to one death in California. Lab tests showed that raw turkey products contaminated with Salmonella had multiple sources of origin, and the outbreak strain was identified in raw turkey pet food, raw turkey products, and live turkeys. While the CDC says it believes the sources of the outbreak strain show it could be "widespread," no products or brands have yet been recalled.

The making of an opioid epidemic: This was no accident Signs of the Times

Jane Ballantyne was, at one time, a true believer. The British-born doctor, who trained as an anaesthetist on the NHS before her appointment to head the pain department at Harvard and its associated hospital, drank up the promise of opioid painkillers - drugs such as morphine and methadone - in the late 1990s. Ballantyne listened to the evangelists among her colleagues who painted the drugs as magic bullets against the scourge of chronic pain blighting millions of American lives. Doctors such as Russell Portenoy at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York saw how effective morphine was in easing the pain of dying cancer patients thanks to the hospice movement that came out of the UK in the 1970s. Why, the new thinking went, could the same opioids not be made to work for people grappling with the physical and mental toll of debilitating pain from arthritis, wrecked knees and bodies worn out by physically demanding jobs? As Portenoy saw it, opiates were effective...

Media, censorship and wars Dear Kitty. Some blog

Dr. David Hughes speaking in Lincoln, England on fake news, censorship and war

From the World Socialist Web Site in Britain:

10 November 2018

An important conference, held in Lincoln November 4 as part of the Economic and Social Research Councils Festival of Social Science, heard detailed reports on the relationship between media censorship and war.

Organised by Dr. David Hughes, Senior Lecturer in International Relations at the University of Lincoln, it was titled Scrutinising the Media: Fake News, Censorship, and War. An audience comprising students and concerned members of the public listened attentively and posed questions.

Hughes delivered three half-hour sessions, each followed by a 15-minute Q&A. War and the media provided examples of the ways in which the media has historically been used to condition public opinion in favour of war. Beginning with the Committee on Public Information in the United States (1917-1919, also known as the Creel Commission) and World War I, it worked forward to today and British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) coverage, or non-coverage, of the Saudi-led intervention into Yemen.

Media suppression of the My Lai massacre in Vietnam and US carpet bombing of Cambodia was cited, as was the use of a PR firm to train the daughter of the Kuwaiti ambassador to the US to fake an emotional testimony about Iraqi soldiers removing babies from their incubators to legitimise the 1991 Gulf War.

The New York Times Butcher of the Balkans rhetoric in 1992directed against Slobodan Milosevicwas juxtaposed to the 2016 decision by the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia to exonerate the former president of Serbia of war crimes.

Questions about the BBC were raised, such as why did it ov...


Pain: Why do some people hurt more than others? Signs of the Times

Anyone who came of age in the 1990s remembers the "Friends" episode where Phoebe and Rachel venture out to get tattoos. Spoiler alert: Rachel gets a tattoo and Phoebe ends up with a black ink dot because she couldn't take the pain. This sitcom storyline is funny, but it also simply illustrates the question that I and many others in the field of "pain genetics" are trying to answer. What is it about Rachel that makes her different from Phoebe? And, more importantly, can we harness this difference to help the "Phoebes" of the world suffer less by making them more like the "Rachels"? Pain is the single most common symptom reported when seeking medical attention. Under normal circumstances, pain signals injury, and the natural response is to protect ourselves until we have recovered and the pain subsides. Unfortunately, people differ not only in their ability to detect, tolerate and respond to pain but also in how they report it and how they respond to various treatments. This makes it...

This Country Is on Track to Be Run by Billionaires Kids Truthdig RSS

This years stock market saw high returns for month after month, as retirees and stock runners alike saw their portfolios rise. Then one day this fall, the market took a turn, and all of the increases of the past several months vanished.

Thats how it goes for the market. Sometimes youre up, sometimes youre down.

For the three wealthiest families in the country, however, the market only ever shoots skyward. The Waltons of Wal-Mart, the Kochs of Koch Industries, and the Mars of Mars chocolate own a combined $348.7 billion. Since 1982, their wealth has skyrocketed nearly 6,000 percent.

None of the living members of these families founded the companies from which their fortunes come all were started by earlier generations.

In fact, more than a third of the Forbes 400 inherited the businesses that generated their wealth. These modern wealth dynasties exercise significant economic power in our current gilded age of extreme inequality.

A new report I co-authored with my colleague Chuck Collins at the Institute for Policy Studies, Billionaire Bonanza 2018, looks at the rise of these wealth dynasties. The Forbes 400 combined own $2.89 trillion, we found. Thats more than the combined wealth of the bottom 64 percent of the United States.

The median family in the United States owns just over $80,000 in household wealth. The richest person in the United States (and the world), Jeff Bezos, has accumulated a fortune nearly 2 million times that amount.

These pictures paint a grim picture of wealth inequality in the United States in 2018.

Wealth is concentrating into fewer and fewer hands while the rest of the country struggles to get by. One in five families has zero or negative wealth. Two in five Americans couldnt come up with $400 if they needed it in an emergency.

Previous generations tried to warn us about economic inequality. Former President Teddy Roosevelt said in 1913, Of all forms of tyranny, the least attractive and the most vulgar is the tyranny of mere wealth, the tyranny of a plutocracy.

A generation later, Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis warned in 1941, We must make our choice. We may have democracy, or we may have wealth concentrated in the hands of a few, but we cant have both.

And for a time, we heeded these warnings. Wealth and income inequality peaked in the 1920s before the passage of high personal income tax rates on the rich, a federal estate tax, and other inequality-fighting public policy measures took hold. Americans enjoyed a general flattening of the economic pyramid up until the 1980s when the modern period of tax cuts for the rich and austerity for the rest of us begun.

Its safe to say that a country in which three individuals own more wealth than half the country as Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, and Warr...

The work is preliminary, and its authors are careful to note that their tissue samples, collected from cadavers, could have been contaminated. But to many passersby in the exhibit hall, the possibility that bacteria could directly influence processes in the brain-including, perhaps, the course of neurological disease-was exhilarating. "This is the hit of the week," said neuroscientist Ronald McGregor of the University of California, Los Angeles, who was not involved in the work. "It's like a whole new molecular factory [in the brain] with its own needs. ... This is mind-blowing."

Ken Starr: I havent seen Trump commit anything close to an impeachable offense

Essentially, you need a consensus among we the people [for impeachment], he said. We the American people need to agree this president should go. We had that with Richard Nixon. We did not have it with Bill Clinton.

We certainly dont have it with Donald Trump, he said. We have a nation divided, but a nation divided does not mean lets get rid of the president.

Hunter kills woman Dear Kitty. Some blog

This video is called Common pheasant (Phasianus colchicus).

Talking about pheasants; translated from Dutch NOS TV today:

Hunter in Slovakia shoots woman dead instead of pheasant

A hunter in Slovakia accidentally shot a 29-year-old woman instead of a pheasant. The victim had been hired as a driver to frighten the birds with her dog.

The hunter shot her in the back. The victim died in a hospital in the Slovak provincial capital Nitra. A police spokesperson says to the Slovakian news agency TASR that several hunters were present. It is still being investigated who exactly fired the deadly shot.

In Slovakia, more people have died during hunting in recent years. Experts say to local media that hunting has become a hobby of newly rich people without experience.

Also, often people are said to be drunk during large hunting parties, while that is illegal.

Probably a hunter like that other hunter who did not know the difference between a fellow hunter and a lion; like Dick Cheney in the USA does not know the difference between a fellow hunter and a quail. Like another hunter does not know the difference between a hare and a female cyclist.

Today is 11/11/11 (2+0+1+8=11) And What Is The Significance Of This Date TruthTheory

By Luke Miller,

Today is 11/11/11 (2+0+1+8=11) and a portal for transformation and the bridging of new ideas. In this case 11 is to the power of 3 and 3 is the holy trinity of The Father (God), The Son (Jesus), and The Holy Spirit. But the trinity also has its suppressed feminine counterpart The Mother (The Virgin Mary), The Daughter (Mary Magdalene), and The Holy Sophia.

Currently there is a split taking place on Earth. One side is toxic masculine and feminine with fear driving division, exploitation and hatred. The other side is divine masculine and feminine with love driving unity, equality and acceptance. If you look at the news, you can see that this is not just a spiritual observation. But a real life divide that is widening daily. Never in recent times have things been so split between groups. So much hatred being spewed out and encouraged by those under the spell of fear. This leads us to the belief that we are not responsible for our own suffering. When the reality is those who trigger us our just mirrors. On the other side of this we have genuine light work happening on a scale not seen before. This is evident in collective consumption choices that are driving industry into new directions. Also simple acts of kindness and open expressions of love which were less prevalent just 6-7 years ago.

The thing about this split is there is a small group on one side and a small group on the other side. Then many in between who have work to do. That is why this year has been so hard. Accelerated karma is no joke. It causes immense suffering over a short period and is incredibly hard to deal with. But this is a reaction to our intentions and if we choose love and want to step into the divine, we need to clear out all the toxicity. In the end it is worth it and there is a bright light at the e...

Death Toll Hits 25 From Wildfires at Both Ends of California Truthdig RSS

PARADISE, Calif. Authorities called in a mobile DNA lab and anthropologists to help identify the dead as the search went on for victims of the most destructive wildfire in California history. The overall death toll from the outbreak of fires at both ends of the state stood at 25 Sunday and appeared likely to rise.

All told, more than 8,000 firefighters battled three large wildfires burning across nearly 400 square miles (1,040 square kilometers) in Northern and Southern California, with out-of-state crews continuing to arrive and gusty, blowtorch winds making their return.

The worst of the blazes was in Northern California, where flames reduced the town of Paradise, population 27,000, to a smoking ruin days ago and continued to rage in surrounding communities. The number of people killed in that fire alone, at least 23, made it the third-deadliest on record in the state.

Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea said the county was bringing in more rescue workers and consulted anthropologists from California State University at Chico because in some cases the only remains we are able to find are bones or bone fragments.

This weighs heavy on all of us, Honea said.

Authorities were also bringing in a DNA lab and encouraged people with missing relatives to submit samples to aid in identifying the dead after the blaze destroyed more than 6,700 buildings, nearly all of them homes.

The sheriffs department compiled a list of 110 people unaccounted for, but officials held out hope that many were safe but had no cellphones or some other way to contact loved ones.

Firefighters gained modest ground overnight against the blaze, which grew slightly to 170 square miles (440 square kilometers) from the day before but was 25 percent contained, up from 20 percent, according to state fire agency, Cal Fire.

But Cal Fire spokesman Bill Murphy warned that gusty winds predicted into Monday morning could spark explosive fire behavior.

Two people were also found dead in a wildfire in Southern California, where flames tore through Malibu mansions and working-class Los Angeles suburbs alike. The severely burned bodies were discovered in a long residential driveway in celebrity-studded Malibu, where those forced out of homes included Lady Gaga, Kim Kardashian West, Guillermo del Toro and Martin Sheen.

Flames also besieged Thousand Oaks, the Southern California city in mourning over the massacre of 12 people in a shooting rampage at a country music bar Wednesday night.

Fire officials said Sunday morning that the larger of the regions two fires, the one burning in and around Malibu, grew to 130 square miles (337 square kilometers) and was 10 percent contained. But the strong, dry Santa Ana winds that blow from the interior toward the coast returned after a one-day lull, fanning the fl...

Disturbing Images Reveal How Plastic Pollution Affects Turtles TruthTheory

by Caroline Power,

Almost one year to the day that my Sea of Plastic post went viral, I was called to assist a rescue of baby sea turtles washing ashore in a mat of Sargassum seaweed. Sargassum is a pelagic seaweed that drifts on ocean currents in tropical and temperate seas. It is a crucial habitat that provides food and shelter to more than 240 species of fish, crustaceans, sea birds, commercially important species such as tuna, and even sea turtles. In the open ocean, sargassum is an oasis. When it washes ashore, it can trap the animals that call it home, burying them alive.
When I arrived, I was horrified. The seaweed was filled with plastic, much of it from Guatemala and Honduras. It was easy to identify the well known products used in this region. Coke bottles, Pepsi labels, single use sachets of shampoo, Clorox bottles, Aguazul water bags, crocs childrens toy, and so many plastic bags. Bags of every shape and color; not shopping bags but ones used for packaging consumer goods.

Up to 40% of the global plastic production is used in packaging. Coca-Cola, PepsiCo., Unilever, Nestl, and Procter and Gamble are responsible for much of the plastic packaging found in our oceans.

In total, volunteers saved 18 recently hatched sea turtles from the plastic. They were taken to a local rescue center where they are all alive and well and waiting to be released. Sadly, not all of the turtles found were alive. A necropsy was performed on one of the dead sea turtles that washed ashore. Eight of the thirteen objects found in its digestive tract were plastic. The turtle was less than two weeks old.

Let us not allow these turtles to have died in vain, to allow this plastic disease to continue. It is a global problem that requires a global solution. Each and...


French President Macron praises Hitler collaborator Ptain Dear Kitty. Some blog

This 10 November 2018 video from the USA says about itself:

French President Macron Praises Nazi-Collaborating Leader, Whitewashing World War I Bloodbath

Frances centrist President Macron ignited a firestorm for praising Nazi collaborator leader Philippe Ptain for his role in World War I. Historian Adam Hochschild argues war resisters are the real heroes who should be honored, as Trump visits Paris to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of WWI.

Ptain deserves not praise, but the sharpest possible criticism. Not only for helping Adolf Hitler in World War II by making France a fascist dictatorship, deporting French Jews to Hitlers death camps and sending French soldiers to the genocidal nazi war on the Soviet Union. Also for his role in World War I, when he had hundreds of French soldiers killed for refusing to obey orders which meant death.

Tensions Rise as Unprecedented Florida Recount Gets Underway Truthdig RSS

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. The first election workers have begun the enormous task of recounting ballots in Floridas bitterly close races for the U.S. Senate and governor, ramping up their efforts after the secretary of state ordered a review of the two nationally watched contests.

Miami-Dade County election officials began feeding ballots into scanning machines Saturday evening. The tedious work in that one South Florida county alone could take days, considering some 800,000 ballots were cast. Multiply that by 67 counties in the nations third most populous state, and the scope of the task was beginning to sink in Sunday.

The Florida secretary of state ordered the recounts Saturday, an unprecedented step for the two flagship races in a state that took five weeks to decide the 2000 presidential election. Secretary of State Ken Detzners office said it was unaware of any other time either a race for governor or U.S. Senate in Florida required a recount, let alone both in the same election.

Floridas 67 counties can decide when to begin their recounts, but must complete them by Thursday. Elections officials in two large counties in the Tampa Bay area Pinellas and Hillsborough said they would begin recounts Sunday morning.

Unofficial results show that Republican former U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis led Democratic Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum by less than 0.5 percentage points, which will require a machine recount of ballots. In the Senate race, Republican Gov. Rick Scotts lead over Democratic incumbent Bill Nelson is less than 0.25 percentage points, requiring a hand recount of ballots from tabulation machines that couldnt determine which candidate got the vote.

The recount opens against a backdrop of political tensions. President Donald Trump on Saturday tweeted without evidence that the elections were being stolen. Angry protesters gathered at an elections office in Broward County on Saturday, waving signs and shouting with bullhorns.

Following the announcement of a recount, Gillum withdrew his concession in the governors race.

Let me say clearly, I am replacing my words of concession with an uncompromised and unapologetic call that we count every single vote, he said, adding that he would accept whatever outcome emerges.

In a video statement released Saturday, DeSantis said the election results were clear and unambiguous and that he was preparing to become the states next governor. He also thanked the states supervisors of elections, canvassing boards, and the staffs for working hard to ensure that all lawful votes are counted.

It is important that everyone involved in the election process strictly adhere to the rule of law which is the foundation for our nation, he said.

In the Senate recount, Scott implored the states sheriffs to watch for any violatio...

Israel doesnt need to control everything in the US, just the important things: AIPAC (with the help of Christian Zionists) controls Middle East policy and keeps aid money flowing by controlling all branches of government; the label anti-Semite is used as a weapon; media is kept from any meaningful criticism of Israel; and exceptionalism allows the Jewish State to waive rules that every other country on the planet must obey.

Camille Paglia: It's time for a new map of the gender world Signs of the Times

I discovered Camille Paglia's work when I was pursuing my undergraduate arts education at The University of Adelaide, South Australia, in the early 2000s. I was deeply disillusioned with the courses in my arts degree and their monomaniacal focus on social constructionism, and was looking for criticism of Michel Foucault on the internet. I stumbled across a 1991 op-ed written by Paglia for The New York Times, in which she described the followers of Lacan, Derrida and Foucault, as "fossilized reactionaries," and "the perfect prophets for the weak, anxious academic personality." I was hooked. It wasn't long before I discovered that my university's library contained each of her books, including the essay collections Vamps and Tramps and Sex, Art and American Culture. For the final year of my arts degree, (before pursuing my studies in psychology) I spent the bulk of my time at the university reading Paglia in the library. She was like a revelation. Her work was subversive but erudite,...


The Child of Rage, Beth Thomas Taught the World What a Psychopathic Child Was Truly Like Awareness Act

It is no secret that the general population is somewhat obsessed with psychopathy. From horror movies, to serial killer documentaries, we just cant seem to get enough. But most people have only come to terms with adult psychopaths so the following may be a bit hard to stomach.

Beth Thomas case has been described as one of the worst cases of abuse of all time and even now that reigns true. You see, Beth was born into a family where she was being harmed by her father. He did unspeakable things to her for as long as he could. While she did end up getting adopted she suffered for far longer than she should have had to. At just 19 months old Beth had gone through hell time and time again. Beth had a younger brother named Jonathan who was also adopted by the same family.

As Beth grew up, it became quite clear that she was not normal. She never developed a conscious and was always wanting to hurt other people. She killed family pets, birds, and even tried to kill her brother on several occasions. Things got so bad that her adoptive parents had to lock her in her room at night while they slept. She even slammed her brothers head on the floor of their basement trying to end his life, he ended up quite tattered but was luckily rescued by their adoptive mother.

Beth became quite the name when she was featured in the 1992 documentary Child Of Rage. This documentary showed footage of her admitting to wanting to slaughter her family in their sleep. She was only six years old at the time of this documentary. Beth was a true child psychopath but also, a victim in more ways than you can imagine.

She was later diagnosed with RAD (reactive attachment disorder). This is a rare condition that happens when children are unable to make proper healthy attachments to caregivers due to extreme abuse. With her parents unsure of what to do they ended up finding the right person for the job. Therapist Connell Watkins helped the family by taking her into her home and working with her. She gave her intense restrictions and now Beth is able to be a functioning member of society.

That being said, while Connell was able to help Beth her practices are quite controversial as she was jailed not long after over the murder of another child who also had an attachment disorder. You see, this practice involves being wrapped in blankets and covered in pillows to recreate being born, a situation that makes it easy for a young child to be smothered or suffocate in general. You can learn more about that by clicking here.

There is a lot of debate among paranormal researchers and psychics about which are spiritual in nature and which are due to dust or natural influence.

Supernatural orbs like to appear in photos because they are often invisible to the naked human eye. At the same time, a lot of dust and other natural particles in the air are also invisible but may show up in photos.

Stop Saudi war on Yemen Dear Kitty. Some blog

Congresswoman-elect Rashida Tlaib & Peace Activist Kathy Kelly Condemn Saudi Cruelty in Yemen

We turn now to the crisis in Yemen, where the U.S.-backed, Saudi-led coalition has drastically escalated its assault on the Yemeni port city of Hodeidah.

The Guardian reports there have been at least 200 airstrikes in the past week, killing at least 150 people. One Saudi airstrike destroyed a home in Hodeidah, killing a father and his five children.

The increased fighting comes as calls grow for a ceasefire to the 3-year war, which has devastated Yemen. On Thursday, a group of Yemeni and international organizations called for immediate cessation of hostilities in Yemen, warning that 14 million people were now on the brink of famine.

UNICEF has warned that the Saudi assault and blockade on Hodeidah is increasing shortages of food, drinking water and medicine. The group says a Yemeni child now dies from a preventable disease every 10 minutes.

9 Reasons Why Pisces Can Be the Most Difficult Sign to Understand Awareness Act

Pisces people are some of the most misunderstood of the 12 zodiac signs. They are quite fascinating but also hard to figure out in more ways than youd think.

Whether you are a Pisces, know a Pisces, or are dating/thinking about dating a Pisces some of the following things might be things you need to know. Being aware of these things helps you get to know the Pisces better and explains why they are so different than what youd expect. So what is it that makes a Pisces so confusing?

9 Reasons Why Pisces Are Sometimes Extremely Confusing:

1. They dont let people in often or show their vulnerable side.

Pisces people do not often allow others to see their most vulnerable sides. They are kind and generous but they are not overly interested. Sure, they might trust you to an extent but they arent going to show you their deepest parts unless they are truly ready.

2. They can go from being super up to super down in the blink of an eye.

Pisces people can go from being happy to sad almost as quickly as Geminis can. They have a lot going on within that you dont see. The way they react to things is different from how others might react to things.

3. They are dreamers in all ways.

Pisces people tend to prefer fantasy worlds over their own world. They are always seeking an escape to their reality. While you might not think much of it, the world they live in is not the same as most others. Pisces people think in a way that most of us do not.

4. They need time alone.

Pisces people need their alone time. They cannot handle being around others for a long time. While they might have a close circle, they wont be the kinds of people to want to be with you 24/7.

5. They always seek new experiences.

Pisces people are always looking for new experiences and trying to get the best out of their lives. They do not like to face the same things all the time. They want to experience this world for all it has to offer, this might be something most other people are not interested in.

6. They are overly fearful.

Pisces people are sometimes overly fearful. They know all too well how frustrating and dangerous the world is. They are much more guarded in their own ways than you might expect them to be. While they will let you in they wont be as easy as most.

7. They are too friendly.

Pisces people are much friendlier than most other people are. They go out of their way to make sure others are comfortable. They usually give much more than they should to people they dont even know well at all.

8. They tend to obsess over the past.

Pisces people tend to stress about the past a lot. They obsess over the past much more than they should and...


Lebanons Gross Public Debt In First Half of 2018 is Higher Than All of Last Years Debt Blog Baladi

During 2017, Lebanons gross public debt hit $3.76 billion.
During the first half of 2018 only, the gross public debt grew by $3.4 billion, vs $1.6 billion in the same period of 2017.

Overall, Lebanons gross public debt rose by 4.3 percent to $82.95 billion in the first six months of 2018 compared to $79.95 billion in the same period of last year [Source].

The reason for that hike is mainly due to the public sectors salary hike bill which was passed last year (and shouldnt have) and the recent gridlock around the formation of a government is definitely not helping improve the economic status. Instead of reducing the number of government employees and cutting down on the expenses, they gave everyone a promotion! And some people still believe those in power want to make reforms and put Lebanon back on the right t


The Moon Completely Flipped on the Other Side of the World, And Everyone Is Freaking Out Awareness Act

Sure, there are a lot of small interesting things about the universe we call home but a lot of them go overlooked. For instance, did you ever stop to think about the moon and how its flipped on the other side of the world?

If you live in the Northern Hemisphere youre used to the way the moon looks for you so if you were to travel anywhere in the Southern hemisphere you would notice quite the difference. For instance, you might feel quite odd about the moon if you were looking at it from Australia as it would not look the same. The moon would literally be upside down in comparison to what youre used to seeing.

The constellations also do this but are not as dramatic of a change. If you were somehow able to walk from one hemisphere to the other you could even see the moon changing and rotating from one way to the next. Basically, this happens because the Southern hemisphere of our planet is upside down compared to the Northern hemisphere.

Jake Clark an astronomer from the University of Southern Queensland in Australia told Science Alert as follows on this topic:

From our perspective, the Moon and the night sky, is actually rotated 180 degrees compared to our Northern Hemispherical friends,

In the south we see the Moons dark Oceanus Procellarum sea in the south-east corner compared to in the north-west corner for a northern observer.

Next time youre planning a holiday travel to a country near the equator during a crescent moon, when the Moon sets it will look like a smiling face,

It depends upon where youre located on Earth but generally the constellations we see in the Southern Hemisphere are rotated again by 180 degrees compared to the Northern Hemisphere,

In Australia, Orions leg and belt is commonly known as The Saucepan, at it looks like a big old cooking pot!

This might not sound like much but if youve never stopped to think about it, it might be quite mind-blowing. What do you think about things like this? I for one find them to be quite fascinating.



State Tells Christian Filmmakers: Make Same-Sex Marriage Films or Spend 90 Days in Jail Humans Are Free

Two Christian filmmakers appeared before the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Paul Tuesday to challenge Minnesota state law which they say illegally forces them to produce and create films expressing messages that contradict their core beliefs.

Telescope Media Group owners Carl and Angel Larsen have already been threatened with hefty fines and up to 90 days in jail if they choose to disregard the law.

The couple is being represented by the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF).

The Larsens want to enter the wedding industry. However, the state's Human Rights Act stipulates if the couple creates films celebrating their Christian beliefs about marriage that marriage is between one man and one woman, they must also create films about marriage that violate their beliefs, including films promoting same-sex marriages.

AUBs Outlook Team Thinks Homophobia is an Opinion Blog Baladi

Last week, I saw a couple of homophobic articles published in AUBs Outlook paper being shared by ex-AUBites including one of Outlooks ex-Editor in Chief. One of the articles tackles the elusive search for a gay gene and encouraging therapy to treat homosexuals.

I waited a bit to see how Outlook will respond, only to find out today that they issued a pathetic statement claiming that they included 6 articles that dealt with homosexuality topic that was chosen by the editorial team to be discussed, and that three articles expressly defended and stood in support of the LGBTQ+ community after last weeks incident, while the others expressed mixed opinions and perspectives.

I have no idea whos running the paper these days but its disgraceful to see Outlook publish such opinions and not even offer an apology to the LGBTQ+ community. Several AUBites and Outlook ex-staff members have launched a call to rebuild AUB Outlook and condemn the actions of the current board following homophobic articles and I join them in their call to reform Outlook.

In times where most countries are embracing differences and legalizing marriages among homosexuals, its shameful to see a leading and prestigious institution like the American University of Beirut allow such articles.

It is important to note that Outlooks bylaws support our stance. Article 5.9 clearly states that published materials may not promote hate speech towards an individual or group on the basis of attributes such as gender, ethnicity, religion, race, disability, or sexual orientation. In addition to that, this years editorial decisions go against all points of the international journalistic code of ethics: seeking truth, minimizing harm, acting independently, and being accountable.


A powerful solar storm likely detonated dozens of US sea mines during the Vietnam War Signs of the Times

An analysis of recently declassified US military documents confirms suspicions that, during the late stages of the Vietnam War, a powerful solar storm caused dozens of sea mines to explode. It's a stark reminder of the Sun's potential to disrupt our technological activities in unexpected ways. As part of Operation Pocket Money, the US Navy planted a series of Destructor sea mines near strategic ports off the coast of North Vietnam. A few weeks later, on August 4, 1972, crew members aboard US Task Force 77 aircraft suddenly observed a batch of explosions south of Hai Phong. In all, some 20 to 30 explosions were documented in just 30 seconds. Another 25 to 30 patches of muddy water were also observed, indicative of further explosions. It was a bizarre occurrence, as there was no reason why the mines should have gone off. Almost immediately, US officials began to contemplate extreme solar activity as the cause, as revealed in newly declassified US Navy documents. New research...


In a World of Their Own George Monbiot

By downplaying and misrepresenting our environmental crisis, David Attenborough and the BBC have generated complacency, confusion and ignorance.

By George Monbiot, published in the Guardian, 7th Novemeber 2018


Knowingly creating a false impression of the world: this is a serious matter. It is more serious still when the BBC does it, and yet worse when the presenter is the most trusted man in Britain. But, as his latest interview with the Observer reveals, Sir David Attenborough sticks to his line that fully representing environmental issues is a turn-off.

His new series, Dynasties, will mention the pressures affecting wildlife, but Attenborough makes it clear that it will play them down. To do otherwise, he suggests, would be proselytising and alarmist. His series will be a great relief from the political landscape which otherwise dominates our thoughts. In light of the astonishing rate of collapse of the animal populations he features, alongside most of the rest of the worlds living systems, and when broadcasting as a whole has disgracefully failed to represent such truths, I dont think such escapism is appropriate or justifiable.

It is not proselytising or alarmist to tell us the raw truth about what is happening to the world, however much it might discomfit us. Nor do I believe that revealing the marvels of nature automatically translates into environmental action, as the executive producer of Dynasties claims. Ive come to believe it can have the opposite effect.

For many years, wildlife film-making has presented a pristine living world. It has created an impression of security and abundance, even in places afflicted by cascading ecological collapse. The cameras reassure us that there are vast tracts of wilderness in which wildlife continues to thrive. They cultivate complacency, not action.

You cannot do such a thing passively. Wildlife filmmakers I know tell me that the effort to portray what looks like an untouched ecosystem becomes harder every year. They have to choose their camera angles ever more carefully to exclude the evidence of destruction, travel further to find the Edens they depict. They know, and many feel deeply uncomfortable about it, th...

Could Consciousness All Come Down to the Way Things Vibrate? The Mind Unleashed

Why is my awareness here, while yours is over there? Why is the universe split in two for each of us, into a subject and an infinity of objects? How is each of us our own center of experience, receiving information about the rest of the world out there? Why are some things conscious and others apparently not? Is a rat conscious? A gnat? A bacterium?

These questions are all aspects of the ancient mind-body problem, which asks, essentially: What is the relationship between mind and matter? Its resisted a generally satisfying conclusion for thousands of years.

The mind-body problem enjoyed a major rebranding over the last two decades. Now its generally known as the hard problem of consciousness, after philosopher David Chalmers coined this term in a now classic paper and further explored it in his 1996 book, The Conscious Mind: In Search of a Fundamental Theory.

Chalmers thought the mind-body problem should be called hard in comparison to what, with tongue in cheek, he called the easy problems of neuroscience: How do neurons and the brain work at the physical level? Of course theyre not actually easy at all. But his point was that theyre relatively easy compared to the truly difficult problem of explaining how consciousness relates to matter.

Over the last decade, my colleague, University of California, Santa Barbara psychology professor Jonathan Schooler and I have developed what we call a resonance theory of consciousness. We suggest that resonance another word for synchronized vibrations is at the heart of not only human consciousness but also animal consciousness and of physical reality more generally. It sounds like something the hippies might have dreamed up its all vibrations, man! but stick with me.

Compiled 11 Nov. 12:01 am EST by Judy Byington, MSW, LCSW, ret. CEO, Child Abuse Recovery, Author, Twenty Two Faces, Byingtons Before Its News articles on a Satanic Cabal CIA & Vatican-sponsored international Pedophile Child Trafficking Ring:

The below was a summary of information from the Internet. It would be up to the individual reader to do their own research and decide whether or not it was valid. Patience was a Virtue. Having Virtue was a sign of a good moral being. Good moral beings had the power to overcome evil and change the world.

Judy Note - The Bottom Line: (Rumors - please do your own research).

Several sources claimed the US RV and release of 800#s could happen at any moment and certainly by this weekend. Iraq has already RVd in-country. China has made a public announcement that they would RV their currency on Mon. Nov. 12 (our Sun. Nov. 11 evening). Sources pointed to Sun. Nov. 11 as a likely start date for the Global Currency Reset, with a back wall of Nov. 14. Those who have exchanged through SKRs have not yet been made liquid, except for some administrative humanitarian situations. Everyone would go together. Midterm Elections were turning into a mass confusion of fraudulent behavior by the Democrats, with some arrested. For some of the criminal elites their bodyguards were actually their very own personal prison guards. They had been in custody for months without knowing. Recent intel reported that operations were underway - a sign that the Alliance felt that they have cleared up the FBI, Department of Justice, Department of Defense and Supreme Court of the US of compromised individuals enough to proceed with THE PLAN. Around Nov. 12-14 we would likely see a Stock Market crash, along with the beginning of a purge of the Cabal (mass arrests, incarceration at GITMO). If chaos broke out due to civil unrest, paid protestors and/or a Stock Market crash, the National Broadcast Alert System would be activated, along with a short-term and limited Martial Law needed for the Cabal mass arrests, incarceration...

The Distrust of Government Armstrong Economics


In Florida, the vote was very close. Ron DeSantis got nearly 40,000 more votes than socialist Andrew Gillum in the Florida governors race. Then Rick Scott over 15,000 more votes than Bill Nelson in the Senate race. Floridas secretary of state ordered a recount Saturday afternoon for the elections for governor and U.S. Senate. Both races remain within the 0.5-percent margin of victory that triggers an automatic recount under state law.

Clearly, with the recount for Governor and the Senate, the election is just not over. This is quite amazing but it reflects just how divided the nation has become. As the political chaos continues, we just may see the distrust of government send more and more capital fleeing from government bonds to equities.

The warning signs are there always. Of course, if the Democrats come in under 47 in the Senate, we should expect that we are headed into a political shift that people never saw coming. Trumps election has now been validated. The Republicans who retired because they did not support Trump, like Speaker Ryan, completely misread the warning signs. They may think they can hide their head in the sand, but there will be no place to hide.

So get ready and buckle up. We may not have yet resolved the US elections, but we now have to turn and look at Europe. Welcome to the new interesting times. How everything shakes out will determine where capital flees to next.


France Macrons Popularity in a Free-Fall Armstrong Economics

In France, things are not much better. Emmanuel Macron, the current president of the French Republic, has collapsed in popularity from 57% to just starting to break the 30% level. Macron has collapsed in popularity faster than Nicolas Sarkozy did, who was a one-term president. Macron said he wanted to turn France into the Start-up nation but really promised the same old traditional political agenda. Many are becoming concerned in France also about the massive immigration. Many French are calling it a Trojan Horse, for now, one-third of all births in France are from non-European.

The problem with all the immigration has been that they dropped all requirements for some sort of skill. This is why many on the legal immigrants in Britain voted for BREXIT for they had had to have the work skill to get in like a doctor or nurse. Trump carried Florida and the Mexican vote for the same reason. So many had to prove they had a skill and go through the Green Card process for years to get in. Nobody is considering the sacrifices others made to migrate. Even the great 19th-century migration from Europe to America, there were no free handouts. They came for the opportunity to work not a free meal.

'Russian hacking' memo reveals how US intel pinned leaks to Kremlin CLG News

'Russian hacking' memo reveals how US intel pinned leaks to Kremlin | 10 Nov 2018 | A newly-out memo containing the Obama admin's talking points about "Russian hacking" in the 2016 election reveals how US spy agencies attributed email leaks to Kremlin by saying it's "consistent" with what they think Russia does. The seven-page document was contained within the 49 pages published on Friday by BuzzFeed, which obtained them through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) inquiry from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) in late October. At the root of it is a November 29 letter by several Democrats on the Senate Intelligence Committee, asking then-President Barack Obama to declassify documents concerning "Russian Active Measures."

Iran Sanctions: Trump Gives Waivers to Irans Major Customers? Dissident Voice

PressTV Interview with Peter Koenig


Iranian President Hassan Rouhani says the new US sanctions against Tehran show that Washington has targeted ordinary people.

Rouhani said the US has spared no effort to mount pressure on Iran through what he called wrong sanctions. He noted that Washington, however, failed in its campaign to bring Iranian oil sales to zero as it had to give waivers to Irans major customers. He also slammed the US for waging a psychological war against Iran, saying Washington will soon understand that it has taken a wrong path.

PressTV: What is your take on this?

Peter Koenig:  As I said on previous occasions, these and all other US sanctions, interfering in other countries sovereign affairs are totally illegal by any standards of international law.

What is amazing is that this crime, which Washington inflicts with impunity to every nation that refuses to follow its dictate, this crime has grown to become a normality and the rest of the western civilization simply accepts it - well, civilization if we can still consider ourselves a civilization.

Having said this, these sanctions are actually toothless. They are ineffective, as Iran will keep selling oil and gas to petrol companies and honor their long-term government contracts. Of course, there are countries afraid of being sanctioned by the United States if they continue dealing with Iran. But by and large, they are few and fewer, because even the western world starts seeing that relying on Washington is like committing slow suicide.

Many have decided to go their own way. Even the EU talks about it, including creating their own transfer system to avoid going through SWIFT for monetary transfers. SWIFT is the western totally privately-owned transfer system, thanks to which financial sanctions are possible. SWIFT is linked to Wall Street banks through which all western transfers have to transit.

In the meantime, of course, Iran has been cut off SWIFT as mandated by Trump, but that is of little importance, because Iran has linked up, as part of her Economy of Resistance, with the eastern SCO Shanghai Cooperation Organization using CIPS the Chinese International Payment System for international monetary transfers.

Of course, Mr. Trump knows it.

So, his sanctions are not much more than a constantly repeated propaganda stint, trying to impress the world, like we can put any country to its knees, if we want to.  Sorry, Washington, no longer. These are times of the past, and your dollar hegemony is nearing the end. Its just a question of time.

PK: Absolutely. A lot. It...

A 71-year-old woman was the victim of a physical and intimidating attack on a Boston-area train after she asked a fellow passenger to move her personal belongings off an otherwise vacant train seat. According to WBZ-TV, the incident occurred during a recent afternoon commute. The victim, who would identify herself only as Linda, said that she asked a fellow passenger to remove a pocketbook from an empty seat in order to sit down.

6 Reasons Why You Are Always Attracted To Men Who Hurt You Awareness Act

Sometimes in life, we find ourselves head over heels for the people who do not deserve us. Far too often we end up falling for men who are only going to break our hearts.

Why is it that we tend to accept the love that is not love at all? Why do we fool ourselves into thinking that the people who so obviously do not care actually do? Well, to be honest, there are several reasons as to why we allow these things to happen. We put our all into these people and when their true colors show we dont know how to cut ties. We believe in the mask that theyve long since dropped and refuse to see the truth.

Below I am going to go over some of the reasons why we seem to be only attracted to those who do us wrong. While it might seem like we arent ever going to find someone worth our time if we persevere we will. You have to know your worth if you ever want to find someone whose energy matches your own.

6 Reasons Why You Always Attract Men Who Do You Wrong:

1. You are always chasing the wild ones.

If you are always chasing someone who isnt available anyways what is the point? Youre setting yourself up to get hurt in this kind of situation. Sure, the wild kinds might be fun but they arent the types to want to settle down.

2. You move too quickly.

If you move too quickly you are running the risk of falling for someone you dont really know. You should take your time. The more time you spend getting to know someone the better.

3. You always think you can fix people.

You cannot fix other people. While you might want to, it is just not possible. Other people have to fix themselves. While you might want to go into things and make this person into the man of your dreams youre only fooling yourself. This isnt fair to him or to you.

4. You care too much about appearances.

Dont let looks blind you. Just because someone is super attractive doesnt mean they will treat you well. You need to make sure youre feeling love and not lust. Fall for the person not for the face.

5. You arent quite ready for commitment yourself.

Sometimes we chase people who are emotionally unavailable because we arent ready to commit ourselves. We dont want the love we think we want and so we hide from it. Whether you think this is you or not you need to really dig deeper to be sure.

6. You do not set proper boundaries.

Boundaries are important. If you do not set proper boundaries you will not be able to grow together. You should never be with someone who stomps all over your boundaries. The more you give into this kind of thi...


10 Negative Habits Of Chronically Unhappy People Awareness Act

People who are chronically unhappy often bring themselves down in more ways than they realize. While it might not seem like much, even the smallest things can make the biggest differences.

We all have our ups and downs but if youre allowing negativity to take hold of your life, you need to make some changes. Below I am going to go over some of the things you might need to stop doing if you want to promote positivity in your life. If you are doing any of these things, changes need to be made.

10 Things Chronically Unhappy People Do That Brings Them Down:

1. Always assuming the worst

If you are always assuming the worst, you are not going to be able to find happiness. You have to sometimes stop letting your mind wander; sure, the worst might happen but it also might not.

2. Obsessing over the past

If you obsess over the past you are putting a damper on your future. While you may have done some shitty things or made some bad choices they do not define you. If you cannot change it you should move on from it.

3. Letting difficult people get the best of them

Sometimes we let people who are hard to be around bring us down. If you are doing this you are allowing the negativity to win. While it might be hard, cutting ties with negative people is important.

4. Comparing themselves to others

No one is perfect and you need to know that! Comparing yourself to someone else is only going to bring you down. Other people are going through their own things and have their own flaws, just because you cannot see them does not mean they are not present.

5. Being too afraid of failure

While it might not seem like it, you could be letting fear get the best of you. Being afraid of failing is not going to do you any good. If you want to move forth in life you have to be willing to fall sometimes. Remember! There is no success without the occasional failure.

6. Talking down on themselves

If you talk down on yourself you need to stop. There is nothing wrong with you and you need to be your own biggest fan, not your worst enemy. Build yourself up dont tear yourself down.

7. Refusing to see the bright side

If you are always being overly negative and refuse to see the bright side you need to change your perspective. You need to try and see the glass as half full instead of half empty. While this might takes some time you can do it if you try hard enough.

8. Blaming others for their own mistakes

If you are blaming others for your own mistakes you need to stop. You need to own up to the t...


Election fraud expert: Brenda Snipes let illegal aliens and felons vote; illegally destroyed ballots Signs of the Times

Three statewide races in Florida are headed to a recount and all depend on results from a county whose supervisor of elections has a history of losing ballots and breaking laws by allowing illegal immigrants and felons to vote, as well as illegally destroying ballots. Broward County supervisor of elections Brenda Snipes' office has admitted "they don't know" how many ballots there are still to count. Snipes' latest failure to finalize Tuesday's election returns days after the polls closed is also in violation of Florida law, which requires elections officials to "report all early voting and all tabulated vote-by-mail results to the Department of State within 30 minutes after the polls close. Thereafter, the canvassing board shall report, with the exception of provisional ballot results, updated precinct election results to the department at least every 45 minutes until all results are completely reported."

Is the American Dream Dead? Operation Disclosure

Is the American Dream dead?

By Brent Johnson

The Republic of the united States of America has all but abandoned its founding principles. The American people are woefully ignorant of the rights with which they have been blessed, and are therefore embarking on a path towards abject servitude that the American Founding Fathers fought a bloody war to prevent from ever happening. It is a genuine tragedy, and the opportunities to reverse this trend are rapidly diminishing in number. However, those opportunities do still exist, and it would be remiss of me to ignore them, and thereby sentence you to a life of hopelessness, slavery, and spiritual poverty.

The American Republic was founded on principles that in 1776 were unheard of throughout the world. At that time all countries functioned in the two-class system; the aristocrats/nobility owned all property and made all laws, and the commoners did what they were told and could never rise above their lower class position.

The American Founding Fathers, with the Declaration of Independence, stated for all the world to hear, that all men are created equal. This meant that all people were of the same class; nobody had greater rights than anybody else. This is the fundamental basis of the Republic of the united States of America, and all laws must adhere to this precept.

The Declaration continued by elucidating the basic rights of all people; they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable (meaning unchangeable) rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness (which means to own property). Remember, commoners could not own property in the two-class system. It was the American Revolution that changed that.

How many of you reading this were created by the government? If you were not created by the government, then you did not get your rights from the government, and no government can ever take them away from you (however, you can voluntarily waive your rights in favor of government privileges and benefits).

The Declaration went on to state, with absolute clarity, To secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. In other words, We the People are above government; government exists to serve us; we do not exist to serve government. ...

SOTT FOCUS: We want to believe: 'Russian hacking' memo shows US intel pinning leaks to Kremlin was an exercise in wishful thinking Signs of the Times

A newly-out memo containing the Obama admin's talking points about "Russian hacking" in the 2016 election reveals how US spy agencies attributed email leaks to Kremlin by saying it's "consistent" with what they think Russia does. The seven-page document was contained within the 49 pages published on Friday by BuzzFeed, which obtained them through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) inquiry from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) in late October. At the root of it is a November 29 letter by several Democrats on the Senate Intelligence Committee, asking then-President Barack Obama to declassify documents concerning "Russian Active Measures."


The Meaningful Lesson the Tarot Has In Store For You, According to the Zodiac Awareness Act

One of the most highly recognized forms of psychic insight, tarot cards have a long and somewhat undiscovered history. Often traced back in origin to 14th Century Europe, the beautifully colored cards are still used by many today to predict and understand our future.

Why is the history so widely unknown? While there are records tracing back as far as 1440, discussion the first known deck of tarot cards in Italy, it is possible that these cards existed but were kept quiet prior to this date due to their magical nature. It is believed that the first decks to be discussed were actually used as a game for nobility, while connections between the cards and divination didnt appear until centuries later. There is also a possibility that this isnt entirely accurate, as Europe was highly controlled by religious forces in the 1400s and 1500s, which easily could have led to early evidence being altered or incomplete.

The practice of Tarot card reading as we recognized it today was first discussed in 1781, across French and England. It was at this time that followers of the occult began to record a connection between the brightly colored cards and the psychic messages that they could foretell.

These cards are said to connect with the powerful psychic energy that moves among us, working both to reveal information about our true inner self as well as to predict the future. Changing mindsets towards witchcraft and the occult have led to a resurgence, with experts reporting that Tarot card sales are the highest they have been in 50 years.

There used to be this idea of tarot being connected to that chick in a shop behind a neon sign whos going to take you for a ride and tell your future, explained tarot reader and author Sasha Graham. Thats different now. Witchcraft and feminist spirituality, especially in our political climate, are having a moment. Tarot is part of that.

What message does Tarot hold for you? Lets look at the card associated with your zodiac sign:

Aries (Mar 21 Apr 19): 9 of Wands

Youre a warrior, facing anything and everything that life throws your way with strength and determination.

How to Tell Him How Much You Love Him, According to the Zodiac Awareness Act

So, you think youve found the one, the person youre destined to spend your life with. Now comes the part that so many of us struggle with, that moment where you tell him just how you feel. If youre struggling to find the right words, Im here to help.

According to a Marist poll, the idea of soulmates isnt lost in todays society with 73% of Americans believing that they are destined to find their one true love. However, some relationship experts warn that as romantic as this notion may be, it could be driving a wedge between us and those that we love. Why? This concept enforces the idea that theres a perfect partner out there. So how do we respond when we find ourselves on the other side of the honeymoon phase, and our partner doesnt look so perfect after all. This reality shatters the perfect illusion, leaving many questioning their relationship altogether.

The truth is that love is anything but perfect. Its messy, difficult, challenging and flawed in so many ways. Real love is that moment when you love your partner including these quirks. This means getting to know your partners personality and the best way to speak directly to their heart.

Each of us can share, feel and experience love in different ways. This theory is the underlying belief behind Gary Chapmans 5 Love Languages series of books and workshops. This teaches couples that in order to tell our partner that we love them, we must first discover how they best experience love. This way we can talk in the language that will speak directly to their heart. This can also be determined by taking the time to assess and understand your partners zodiac sign, and what that, in turn, reveals about their personality.

What is the best way to tell your partner that you love him, according to his zodiac sign?

Aries (March 21 April 19): Random Physical Expressions

While some people may rely on the words that they speak to express how they feel, Aries instead believes that love should be expressed through the smaller physical actions such as a quick kiss, holding hands or a passing hug. Therefore, the best way to tell them just how youre feeling isnt going to come through some elaborate poetry or confession of your feelings. Instead, pay attention to the smaller details. Did you kiss your partner good morning? Were you holding his hand as you walked through the mall? Aries men are incredibly open with their feelings, and they seek the same in return.

Democratic lawyers object to 'non-citizen' Florida ballot being thrown out Signs of the Times

If there's one overriding lesson to be learned from the ballot-counting debacle in Broward and Palm Beach Counties, it's that, if you're trying to ensure an accurate vote count in Florida, then you're a racist. That theme, which Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz learned this lesson the hard way when a liberal group employed the r-word in response to Gaetz's attempts to figure out exactly what is going on in Broward County. And soon, trying to exclude votes cast by non-citizens could be construed as racist, because, in a shocking report culled directly from an unofficial transcript from the review of provisional ballots in Broward County, lawyers for Democratic candidates Andrew Gillum and Bill Nelson - who narrowly lost their bids for governor and senator, respectively - can be heard trying to stop a ballot cast by a non-citizen from being excluded from the official count. The ballot review was held earlier this week, before Florida's Secretary of State ordered the recount on...
