The Internet Just Crowdfunded the Release of 4,358 CIA Mind Control Documents The Event Chronicle

(ANTIMEDIA)  A crowdfunding campaign has succeeded in raising the funds necessary to pay a Freedom of Information Act request fee for documents related to the CIAs controversial MKUltra program.

John Greenewald of Black Vault, a website that publishes government documents, appealed to the internet for help after the agency refused to waive the $425 fee it was demanding to release the documents. Greenewald, who has been filing FOIA requests for two decades, had previously published files on MKUltra, a program best known for dosing individuals with drugs like LSD to research mind control. The program was shut down, and the documents were reportedly destroyed in 1973 at the order of then-director Richard Helms, but some were eventually released.

Greenewald filed his first request for the documents in the late 90s and says he didnt hear back for years. In 2004, the CIA released some relevant documents to him via CD-Rom, which he published, but years later, he discovered thousands of pages were missing.

So, even though I paid for the CDs already, and they gave me an index originally stating that 100% of those records were on the CD-ROMs, they in fact, were not, he said in his GoFundMe appeal. He filed a new request but the CIA is charging him $425 to print 4,358 pages of previously withheld material. He easily met his goal of $500 (to cover any additional costs and GoFundMe fees) with the help of just 16 donors.

MKUltra has been extensively verified in one case, the CIA kept seven prisoners at a Kentucky penitentiary high on acid for 77 days but many of the documents are not available to the public. Though the CIA claims the documents he is requesting are not related to MKUltra, and rather, pertain to behavioral modification, Greenewald isnt convinced. Whether or not that ties into MKUltra and mind control, which I believe it does, the CIA claims it does not, he...

Latvian politician says bad relations with Russia is creating economic catastrophe for country Signs of the Times

Latvia has created a catastrophic situation for itself because of its antagonization of relations with Russia, a candidate of the Latvian political party Soglasie ("Agreement" or "Harmony", in English), Aleksei Medvedev, has claimed in a new video message on Facebook. "I, as a person who was born and lived all his life in Ventspils, a city where the main source of income is the port, I cannot remain silent about the catastrophic situation that has arisen in the country", Medvedev explained, specifically mentioning the impact of failing cargo trade resultant of deteriorated relations with Russia. According to the politician, maritime and rail transport brought 700 million euros to the country in 2016, but by the end of 2018 revenue will have declined significantly. In the future, Medvedev warned, the situation will only worsen, bringing economic woes to not only to the city, but the whole country. Medvedev expressed certainty that this economic disaster is the result of Riga's Russophobic foreign policy.

Joe Stacking Takes Off With 2 Incidents In Recent Days Qntra

Joe Stacking has seen an increase in recent days with 2 men pushed to the brink took to the skies in pursuit of satisfaction:

  • In the first incident a SEATAC ground crew member 29 year old Richard Russell took a plane from his workplace and engaged in a recreational flight with his only training sourced from video games (archived). In a conversation with air traffic controllers he lamented the enui of his marginalized white, male, Pacific Northwestern existence and threatened nothing more than the thrill of attempting to perform a barrel roll. US government F-15 warplanes followed the joyrider until the plane met the ground, likely due to action by the pilots of the warplanes killing Russell.
  • In the second incident 47 year old Duane Youd, a professional pilot driven to the edge by his bitch wife took a Cessna Citation jet and flew it into his Utah home which his bitch wife had police remove him from hours earlier (archived). The wife survived the incident uninjured, but substantially poorer.

White Hats Auxiliary: Fact Check #146 The Event Chronicle

Greetings,

Its time to move to a fresh thread. Barring any new updates or releases from the official White Hat blog, this thread will remain until the end of the year. All previous threads are still available for reading by accessing the archives.

By now it is no surprise that a rather quiet posture has set in from our sources. Between reports of Elders sojourning in London, and being told that RV specifics are not possible, one can only surmise that the progress is of a forward nature. In the past, progress of a backwards nature was always quick to be released and outlined in no uncertain terms. Despite many weeks passing since the silence has started, no slipping has been reported so far. I will leave it to you to determine just what silence can possibly mean at this time.

We never started out to be a crypto blog, but many of you are taking more of an interest in this new space and the desire to obtain transformational gains is certainly understood. Given the ongoing RV delays and uncertainty about the final numbers, the needs are certainly understandable. I have done what I could to impart simple rules to keep you safe while positioning yourself for possible future gains. Many have shared their experiences with me, and I am happy to report that almost all of those who have, did great jobs in being disciplined, safe and prudent in their approach.

As I mentioned previously in the last thread, my main anxiety now is that of timing. While an RV is not needed for one to experience a potential windfall from expected crypto value increases, it certainly would be optimum if additional capital could be safely committed before institutional funds are unleashed into the crypto world. We can only hope that fair winds, and the silence from the top, will augur well for events to happen sooner rather than later.

For now, news risk  will be impacting on crypto prices due to relative thin liquidity and the naivety and unsophisticated nature of most who hold BTC at this time. Dont let such shake you loose. In advance of what we know is on the horizon, it is at this time that you must hold on. All manner of jabberwoky will be hurled at you in an effort to make you give up. You should easily repel such urges by safe position sizes. If you find yourself chewing your knuckles when prices go against you, then you probably put in too much in relation to your bankroll, and are now going to doubt yourself. When doubt creeps in, wealth creeps out.

When it comes to speculation of this kind, I have seen people driven to hysterical frenzies resembling rapid-fire schizophrenia intermixed with near uncontrollable urges to crap into their hands and rub it in their hair, just because they heard one financial analyst say one thing, then another one says something different. They dont know how to maintain a stable position. As a result, they buy and sell themselves into a vat of buttermilk as they chase one opinion afte...

Lavrov: US's gross misuse of the dollar will lead to its weakening and force a switch to other national currencies Signs of the Times

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has said that the role of the US dollar as a global reserve currency may be diminished as more countries switch to national currencies in trade. "Abuse, gross abuse of the role of the US dollar as a world reserve currency will cause its role to be weakened," Lavrov said, speaking at a press conference in Ankara with Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu. It will make more and more countries that are not even affected by US sanctions go away from the dollar and rely on more reliable, contractual partners in terms of currency use," the Russian foreign minister said. Lavrov noted that US sanctions, including those against Turkey, undermine all principles of global trade.

Not 1, Not 2, But 3 Neighbors Called the Cops to Report a Little Girl Selling Cookies The Daily Sheeple

Cedar Falls, IA As the Free Thought Project reported last month, 2018 is turning out to be the summer of the snitches as neighbors turn in fellow neighbors to authorities for selling water, lemonade, or for simply being black at your own apartment complex pool. This see something say something society is the wet dream of the authoritarian and as a recent case of a girl selling cookies out of Iowa illustrates, it is showing no signs of slowing.

One would think that in the ostensible land of the free, a little girl selling cookies to raise money over the summer would never be an issue over which people would call the police. However, one would be wrong.

Savannah Watters, a 10-year-old girl selling homemade cookies on her street became the subject of not one neighbor calling the police, not even two. In total, three of this little girls neighbors called armed men in bullet proof vests to report that a 10-year-old selling cookies is disrupting to their neighborhood.

It was going really well, said Savannah, until the cops showed up that is.

Neighbors claim the girls cookie stand was disrupting traffic, so they had no other option but to resort to the force of the state to solve this problem.

Apparently, simply walking over to the girls house and asking her parents to help solve the traffic problem was just too difficult and they were forced to bring in armed enforcers to do their bidding for them.

As WIRC reported, one of those neighbors tells CNN off camera that she called the police because she was worried about the traffic flow on the street and she was just trying to protect the safety of the children in the neighborhood, including her own, after her daughter was almost hit by a cookie customers car.

Over a period of five days, (the department) received three phone calls, Cedar Falls Police Chief Jeff Olson said.

One of the callers wanted officers to do a welfare check to make sure there were proper supervision of the cookie entrepreneur and the other two callers were concerned about increased traffic in the neighborhood, WIRC reported.

Well, weve got a little girl been selling cookies and water for four weeks and the traffic is getting to the point that theyre using our driveway to turn around, which is fine, but they almost hit my daughter, the neighbor said. I mean, its just adding. Its getting out of control.

Amazingly enough, and to their credit, th...

Brexit fallout? A united Ireland may not be as far off as you think Signs of the Times

Britain's haphazard attempt at withdrawal from the European Union has reopened the debate on the prospect of a united Ireland - and despite loud protests from some quarters, the cat can't be put back in the bag. The prospect of a 'hard' Brexit is nowhere more feared than it is on the island of Ireland. The signing of the Good Friday Agreement (GFA) in 1998 put an official end to 30 years of sectarian conflict in the north-eastern corner of Ireland and brought a fragile peace to a statelet that had been founded - and sustained for decades - on a crude sectarian headcount. Included in the GFA was a mechanism whereby a united Ireland could be achieved at some point in the future, through separate border polls in the north and south, if at any time it appeared the appetite was there for reunification.

Tyrannosaur family various species, video Dear Kitty. Some blog

This video says about itself:

Tyrannosaur family species comparison

13 August 2018

Welcome to the second round of the new dinosaur comparison videos. In this comparison video, we shall compare the different Tyrannosaurus family species or also known as Tyrannosaurids.

These dinosaurs have a strong jaw and are among the largest terrestrial predators to have existed in the world.

Tyrannosaurus rex, T-rex, is one of the largest land predators to have ever existed while Tarbosaurus is also on the top ten list along with others like Albertosaurus, Gorgosaurus, Daspletosaurus, Zhuchengtyrannus, Qianzhousaurus etc.

There are 11 tyrannosaurids that have been confirmed from fossils and these tyrannosaurus species differ in size and comparison so much that the smallest of them weighs less than one tonne and the largest weighs more than 10 tonnes.

The smallest tyrannosaurid measures only 5-6 meters in length while the largest measures more than 12-13 meters in length. These tyrannosaurus species all have one thing in common, the noticeable strong and rounded skull.

In this video of the Tyrannosaurus family species comparison, we shall take a more detailed look at the 11 tyrannosaurids, their size, where and when they existed.

So enjoy this video on Tyrannosaurus family species comparison.

A Strange Missile Launch, and an Even Stranger Comment from Russia The Event Chronicle

By Joseph P. Farrell

Serious Incident Unfolds As NATO Jet Accidentally Launches Secret Missile Near Russian Border

Now, one might guess why I was initially reluctant to comment on the story in todays world: Stock market go down? Blame Mr. Putin and Russia. Pension fund problems? Blame Mr. Putin and Russia. Having problems finding that missing $50,000,000,000,000 that you set aside? Blame Mr. Putin and Russia.  Cant get reach customer non-service in India? Blame Mr. Putin and Russia. Flat tire? Blame Mr. Putin and Russia. Didnt get the grades from your professors you wanted? Blame Mr. Putin and Russia. Wrong person  elected to the local animal shelter control board? Blame Mr. Putin and Russia. Spies didnt die when you laced their house with nerve agents? Blame Mr. Putin and Russia. (The last one is particularly useful, for it gives you the excuse to impose more sanctions.)

Its really become almost comical to watch the Putinomania and Russophobia   lets call it Putinorussophobimania at work these days. With all of the things modern Russia and Mr. Putin are being blamed for, it makes Stalins Soviet Union look positively quiescent and supine, and hence one does not want to add too hastily to the climate of Putinorussophobimania. In such a climate the smallest incidents can get blown all out of proportion, and in the case of the worlds other large thermonuclear power, that can be a bad thing.

So, in that context, NATO has been holding exercises in the Baltic states, no doubt to impress Mr. Putin with its Putinorussophobimania, and how quickly it can reach St. Petersburg. Field Marshal von Leebs Army Group North had to start hundreds of miles back, in East Prussia. NATOs Estonia is right next door. And so, just for good measure, a missile is launched supposedly accidentally by aircraft from the military of a nation located in the opposite diagonal corner of Europe, Spain, which to complete this picture of looming deja vu, also sent a division to the Eastern Front in World War Two, the Spanish Blue division, which you guessed it served in the Leningrad/St. Petersburg area.

12 Terrifying Facts About Witches and Witchcraft That Will Make You Believe They Exist Awareness Act

Its a topic that has intrigued our society, the topic of witchcraft and magic, a growing religion and practice across our nation. Whether you believe that magic is real, or that its all nothing but a hoax, the history and truth about witchcraft is a fascinating one!

For most Americans, a witch is nothing more than a character associated with Halloween, a villain appearing in your favorite fairy-tales. After all, we all know to steer clear of the Wicked Witch, right? However, what most people dont realize is that real living, breathing witches are walking among us today.

How much do you know about witches? Here are 12 fun, yet terrifying facts:

#1 Wicca, a witchcraft-based religion, was officially declared a religion in the United States in 1985.

Many Americans may not realize this, but with witchcraft-based religion, Wicca is actually a recognized legal religion in the United States. It was ruled as such in 1985 by the District Court of Virginia. An important case, as it changed the way these religions were treated throughout the nation, the ruling stated that members of this religion adhere to a fairly complex set of doctrines relating to the spiritual aspect of their lives and for this reason, it foals under the definition of religion for First Amendment purposes.

#2 Most witches that were executed werent actually burned at the stake.

Its an image that most associate with the witch-hunts, however, the majority of witches that were executed werent actually burned at the stake. Written records indicate that most who were convicted of practicing witchcraft were either hanged. However, thats not to say that it didnt happen! The Medieval law codes called for witchcraft to be punished by fire. Most of these witches were either hanged or beheaded prior to their body being burned, but some were left to endure the horror of being burned alive.

#3 An official book called the Malleus Maleficarum was better known as the witch-hunting manual.

First published in 1487, the Malleus Maleficarum (Latin for The Hammer of Witches) was written to instruct on the correct ways to identify, interrogate and convict witches. While the document was not actually granted approval by Pope Innocent VIII, the papal bull appearing at the beginning of the book misled many to believe exactly that. Some even claim that the Letter of Approbation from The Faculty of Theology of the University of Cologne was falsified after the authors were denied endorsement. The book never gained great ground with the authorities and leadership, with the Inquisition reportedly denouncing Heinrich Kramer in 1490. However, the book itself never appeared on any Index Librorum Prohibitorum, me...

12 Signs You Partner Doesnt Feel the Same Way Anymore Awareness Act

You fell head over heels in love, determined this was the man you would spend the rest of your life with, or is he? If his recent actions have you second-guessing whether he truly cares, then its time to take a step back and reassess the situation.

Love comes and goes in stages. When you first met, it was love at first sight. You knew the second that your eyes met that you were meant to be together. The whirlwind romance that followed was like something straight off the pages of a romance novel. Yet, in time, you began to second guess just how he was feeling. Have his feelings changed? As we grow and evolve throughout life, not only do we become somebody new, our interests begin to change as well.

Beware these 12 signs that your boyfriends feelings towards you have changed:

#1 When you are out in public, hes regularly checking out other women.

There is nothing wrong with acknowledging that someone else is attractive, but there is a distinct difference between noticing this and seriously checking someone out. Where is his attention at when youre out in public? Are you still the center of his world, or are his eyes wandering somewhere else? If hes too busy checking out other women to see what hes got right in front of him, then hes just not that into you.

#2 He no longer initiates any physical contact or affection.

Physical touch is a huge part of a healthy relationship, ranging from the innocence of hand holding right up to the wild experiences that happen in the bedroom (or outside of it). If he truly has feelings for you, then hes going to crave this affection as much as you do, moving in to give you a kiss or initiating your latest romp. If, however, you notice that he no longer has an interest in physical contact, this is a sign that something isnt working.

#3 The phrase I Love You is no longer in his vocabulary.

This is, arguably, the most obvious of the signs. Pay careful attention to the things that he is, or isnt, saying to you. If you were at a stage that phrases like I love you were a regular part of your relationship, and that is suddenly absent, this is a sign that something has fundamentally changed. It may sound a little silly, after all, its just three words, but these three words have such a deep and important meaning when it comes to your connection.

#4 He no longer tries to comfort you or make you feel better when youre upset.

When a guy cares deeply about you, theres nothing that he wants more than to see you smile. If anything comes up in life that upsets you or brings you down, hes going to step up and do what he can to bring this smile back comforting you and...

August Isnt Over Yet! And This Celestial Calendar Is Your Complete Guide to the Rest of the Month Awareness Act

Coming off the heels of an intense and complicated month of July, the month of August isnt about to offer us any relief. This is a month of high energy, with multiple planets still in retrograde movement, and the coming full moon, so prepare yourself because here we go!

If there is one thing that we have become all too familiar with this summer, its the concept of planetary retrograde and the profound way that this shift in movement can impact our lives. From the miscommunication and chaos of Mercury Retrograde, though to the intense spirituality of Neptune Retrograde, weve felt it all, and then some! Each of these planets has its own unique and meaningful influence on our lives, and the best way to survive this heightened energy is to start by recognizing and accepting its impact. Have you noticed that something is off or weird this month? Maybe its time to start doing some research! Take a look at each of the planets in retrograde movement at some point during the month of August (Mercury, Mars, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune) and the way that it is predicted to influence your life, specifically in relation to your zodiac sign. You may be surprised!

Adding to the already intense energy of the month, the movement of the Moon adds another important level to the energy that we are feeling. Often overlooked or underestimated, it is important to realize just how important the moons energy is to our lives. While the sun rules over our personality and the way that others perceive us, the moons focus is more internal. The Ruler of Emotions, the moon can intensify the way you feel about a given situation, focus your emotional energy on a specific area of your life, or, when its at its most chaotic, trigger incredible mood swings and confusion.

On August 26th we will experience the next full moon. While most of us associate the full moon with craziness and chaos, understanding the reason for this erratic behavior may help you to better manage the situation. The full moon doesnt actually make people crazy, however, it is the highest point emotionally. For this reason, any feelings of anger, hostility, etc. are heightened. When driven by such over the top feelings, it is no wonder that many people end up acting in a way that appears a little insane. However, the full moon doesnt just heighten the negative emotions! Harness this power for good and you can propel yourself forward in a positive way!

Are you prepared for everything this month still has in store? Check out the energy calendar for the second half of August 2018:

BREAKING: Investigative Journalist Found Dead in D.C. Hotel Room Weeks After Reporting Bill Clinton to FBI & DHS The Event Chronicle

Investigative Journalist Found Dead in D.C. Hotel Room Weeks After Reporting Bill Clinton to FBI & DHS for Allegedly Raping Boy

By True Pundit

Investigative Journalist Jen Moore was found dead in a suburban Washington D.C. hotel room Monday, according to police and shocked and distraught friends and colleagues.

Moore died of an apparent seizure. Police are closely investigating the cause of death after former FBI Agent Robyn Gritz, a friend of Moores, made inquiries with homicide detectives Monday afternoon in Prince Georges County, Maryland. Preliminary reports from police said the death was not the result of suicide.

Moores body was found by employees at the Country Inn & Suites by Radisson, Washington, D.C. East in Capitol Heights, Maryland. The investigation is ongoing. An autopsy had not been scheduled as of late Monday.

Moore, an advocate who investigated abused and trafficked children, had been in the process of investigating allegations by a 26-year-old man that as a young boy he was sexually assaulted by Bill Clinton and pimped out at private sex parties attended by other D.C. elites.

In fact, just four weeks before her death, Moore filed details of the alleged victims claims with the Department of Homeland Security, detailing the allegations against Clinton. Moore contacted Homeland Security beginning on July 6th through July 9th, records show. A week later, she contacted the FBI with identical details about the victim and the shocking allegations against Clinton.

FBI sources report no case has been opened on the evidence supplied by Moore. Homeland Security officials could not be reached for comment.

Moore had approached True Pundits Thomas Paine in June with the allegations against Clinton. Paine conducted a series of face-to-face interviews with Moore and the alleged victim in various locales. By July, the victim agreed to tell his story to Paine. But Moore and the traumatized victim wanted to contact Homeland Security and the FBI first to see if they would open a criminal case against Clinton prior to publicizing the claims.

Jen thought that with a criminal probe, federal agents could use the victim possibly to dangle in front of Clinton to see if he made a mistake or tried to pay him off, Paine said. She was worried about the safety of the victim and was working to find him safe harbor until this story broke. Now she is the one who turned up dead.

Paine and True Pundit were vetting the details provided by the victim. Paine said the allegations were credible and the victims testimony and details were beyond convincing.

Paine said Moore accepted the risks with the story and understood things could get very ugly very fast. Per conversations with True Pundits Paine:

How Much Money Has Hillary Clintons Campaign Taken from Fossil Fuel Companies?

According to a new report by Greenpeace, Hillary Clintons presidential campaign and the super PAC supporting her have received $138,400 from fossil fuel lobbyists and $1,327,210 from bundlers, totaling more than $4.5 million from lobbyists, bundlers and large donors connected the fossil fuel industry. Clinton maintains that shes received only about $330,000 from individuals who work for fossil fuel companiesabout 0.2 percent of the total raised by her campaign.

Facebook disappears Latin American news network TeleSUR from platform for the second time this year Signs of the Times

Telesur English, a multi-state-funded Latin American news network, says that Facebook has removed its page for the second time this year "without any specific reason being provided." Telesur claims its page was abruptly taken offline on Monday. Facebook provided the vague explanation that the page had violated its terms of use, but did not elaborate further. "This is an alarming development in light of the recent shutting down of pages that don't fit a mainstream narrative," the network declared. While it is unclear whether there is any connection, Journalist Max Blumenthal has called it "deeply disturbing" that the removal comes after Facebook partnered up with the Digital Forensic Lab, an offshoot of the Atlantic Council, a neo-liberal think tank set up in 1961 to promote Western ideology around the world.

The U.S. government must answer questions about its handling of the so-called Russia Dossier in court, thanks to a court ruling Friday. U.S. District Judge Amit P. Mehta granted BuzzFeed's motion to compel testimony. The outlet demanded this information for their defense in a defamation lawsuit by Russian executive Aleksej Gubarev. He complained that the outlet didn't redact his name from the dossier when they published it, on January 10, 2017, and that the next-to-last paragraph of the document falsely identified him and two companies as participating in a plot to use "botnet and porn traffic" to infect computers run by Democratic Party leadership.

Worried About Election Interference? 5 Times the US Meddled in Foreign Elections MintPress News

Washington D.C.  If you read any article about the Russian hacking or U.S. election interference you will likely see some reference to the U.S.s own long history of election interference. Yet most of these articles defend the U.S. by claiming that such interference campaigns dropped off significantly since the end of the Cold War.

This assumption, however, is fundamentally wrong. In the past 15 years alone, there are many cases of the U.S. interfering in the Democratic process of foreign nations. Below are some of the worst examples of this election interference.

 

Nazis and Hand-Picked Leaders in Ukraine, 2014

While the mainstream media blames Russia for the civil war in Ukraine, the truth is that the West started the conflict. The crisis began in 2013 when Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych rejected an EU offer of closer economic cooperation and instead chose to pursue closer economic ties with Russia

The U.S. then decided it was time for a new government in Kiev. In an entirely illegal process, pro-western politicians seized power from the democratically elected Yanukovych. It was later revealed in a leaked phone call that the U.S. handpicked leaders of this new illegal government. The U.S. even supported Ukrainian neo-nazis and other far-right fascist organizations that supported the Western coup. When Ukrainian rebels in the east took up arms against the new Western-backed government, the country plunged into a civil war that continues to this day.

 

Election Interference in Venezuela, 2018

Washingtons main attacks against Venezuela have generally occurred through sanctions and economic warfare, but the U.S. has also meddled in Caracass elections.

In an attempt to discredit the most recent presidential election, the U.S. declared the election illegitimate before a single vote had been cast. U.S. puppet states in the region followed suit by also declaring the election illegitimate. Despite this, international observers from over 40 countries confirmed the validity of Venezuelas election.  In the wake of the election, both China and Russia issued statements calling for the elections results to be respected.

Even more recently, Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro escaped a botched assassination attempt. The Venezuelan governme...

Human Trafficking Arrests Are Up. Now, Its Time for Disclosure. The Event Chronicle

By Dannielle Blumenthal, PhD

People are impatient for the arrests to begin but they may not realize just how much is underway. Specifically, an analysis of the running list of human trafficking-related arrests at Qmap.pub/kids revealed that arrests have jumped 234% in slightly more than a year and a half.

Thats significant.

The anonymous Patriots at Qmap (so named because the site focuses on what #QAnon is telling us about current events) have been collecting headlines about human trafficking related arrests beginning on the day President Trump was inaugurated and continuing through the present. The purpose of this post is to highlight the progress that has been made thus far.

Before we do that, lets consider briefly how the data is limited:

  • It does not go back in time to compare the current level and quality of arrests with prior years. A number of efforts within the Federal government to combat human trafficking date as far back as 2000.
  • We dont have the criteria used to determine which arrests were worth including.
  • All arrests count as one unit, but it would be preferable to weight them such that nationwide stings; high-number arrests; child sex trafficking arrests/child pornography arrests; and arrests of authorities get a heavier weighting.

 

All that said, it seems that the trajectory is extremely positive.

  • We are only three-fourths of the way into 2018, and if the current trend continues, the number of arrests is likely to go up significantly by years end.

Saudi Arabia and Iran reignite the oil price war ahead of the imposition of US sanctions Signs of the Times

The rivalry between Saudi Arabia and Iran is becoming increasingly evident in the oil pricing policies of the two large Middle Eastern producers. The two countries are currently reigniting the market share and pricing war ahead of the returning U.S. sanctions on Iranian oil. Saudi Arabia, OPEC's largest producer, has been boosting oil production to offset supply disruptions elsewhere, including the anticipated loss of Iranian oil supply after U.S. sanctions on Tehran return in early November. The Saudis are also cutting their prices to the prized Asian market to lure more customers as they increase supply. Iran, OPEC's third-largest producer, is trying to convince its oil customers to continue buying Iranian oil despite stringent U.S. efforts to curb Iranian production.

ALL DOTS CONNECTED: Clintons, Mueller, Rosenstein, Comey, Learner, plus secret guests The Event Chronicle

Lets follow the trail

By The Patriot Mind

Heres what it looks like when all the pieces are sewn together. It smells like conspiracy and treason. Everyone needs to read this. Slowly, and patiently, because its very important

From 2001 to 2005 there was an ongoing investigation into the Clinton Foundation.

A Grand Jury had been empanelled.

Governments from around the world had donated to the Charity.

Yet, from 2001 to 2003 none of those Donations to the Clinton Foundation were declared.

Hmmm, now you would think that an honest investigator would be able to figure this out.

Guess who took over this investigation in 2002?

Bet you cant guess.

None other than James Comey.

Now, thats interesting, isnt it?

Guess who was transferred in to the Internal Revenue Service to run the Tax Exemption Branch of the IRS?

Your friend and mine, Lois Be on The Look Out (BOLO) Lerner.

Now, thats interesting, isnt it?

It gets better, well not really, but this is all just a series of strange coincidences, right?

Guess who ran the Tax Division inside the Department of Injustice from 2001 to 2005?

No other than the Assistant Attorney General of the United States, Rod Rosenstein.

Now, thats interesting, isnt it?

Guess who was the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation during this time frame?

I know, its a miracle, just a coincidence, just an anomaly in statistics and chances, but it was Robert Mueller.

What do all four casting characters have in common?

They all were briefed and/or were front line investigators into the Clinton Foundation Investigation.

Now thats just a coincidence, right?

Ok, lets chalk the last one up to mere chance.

Lets fast forward to 2009

James Comey leaves the Justice Department to go and cash-in at Lockheed Martin.

Hillary Clinton is running the State Department, on her own personal email server by the way.

The Uranium One issue comes to the attention of the Hillary.

Like all good public servants do, you know looking out for Americas best interest, she decides to support the decision and approve the sale of 20% of US Uranium to no other than, the Russians.

Now you would think that this is a fairly straight up deal, except it wasnt, the People got absolutely nothing out of it.

However, prior to the sales approval, no other than ...

Russian Deputy FM: US and allies violating INF Treaty Signs of the Times

Russia's deputy foreign minister has said that the United States and some of its allies were knowingly violating the 1988 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty by deploying launching systems capable of firing cruise missiles. "As far as the INF Treaty is concerned, the situation is evident in which the United States and some of its allies are knowingly violating it, in particular by deploying on their territories the Mk-41 launching systems capable of firing the ground-based cruise missiles," Sergey Ryabkov was quoted as saying by RIA Novosti. The comment came soon after US President Donald Trump signed the US National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for 2019, the document that contains, among other things, allegations that Moscow violated several important international agreements on weapons control, including the INF treaty.

WTF?! New Mexico Jihadis Can Leave Jail Until Child Abuse Trial, Judge Rules The Event Chronicle

By Chuck Ross

A New Mexico state judge ruled Monday that five alleged Muslim extremists accused of training children to conduct school shootings do not have to remain in jail while they await trial for child abuse.

Judge Sarah Backus released the five defendants, Siraj Wahhaj, Hujrah Wahhaj, Subhannah Wahhaj, Jany Leveille, and Lucas Morten, on a $20,000 signature bond, according to the Albuquerque Journal. That means that the defendants will not have to pay money unless they violate the conditions of their release.

Backus said that New Mexico state prosecutors were unable to show that the five defendants should have their bail denied because they posed a threat to the community. Backus said that the defendants will be required to wear GPS tracking devices through the duration of their court case.

RELATED: New Mexico compound boy died during ritual ceremony

The state alleges there was a big plan afoot but the state has not shown to my satisfaction by clear and convincing evidence what in fact that plan was, Backus said at Mondays hearing, according to CNN.

The state wants me to make a leap and its a large leap and that would be to hold people in jail without bond based on again troubling facts but I didnt hear any choate plan that was being alleged by the state.

All five have been charged with 11 counts of child abuse after 11 malnourished children were found at the groups compound during an Aug. 3 raid.

The group set up the makeshift compound in Amalia, N.M., just south of the Colorado border.

Taos County Sheriff Jerry Hogrefe said during a press conference on Aug. 7 that the children were found living in filthy conditions, and that Wahhaj and Morton were extremist[s]of the Muslim belief.

Wahhajs father is a Brooklyn-based imam of the same name. The elder Wahhaj was an un-indicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing case. (RELATED: Media Omits Compound Leaders Muslim Ties)

The four-year-old son of the younger Siraj Wahhaj was found buried near the compound. Prosecutors say that the boy, Abdul-Ghani Wahhaj, died during an exorcism ritual conducted by his father.

Abdul-Ghanni had been reported missing from his home in George in December. Wahhaj has not been charged in his sons death.

Investigators also found a cache of weapons at the compound....

Karl Marx 'zero-euro' faux bill takes Germany by storm Signs of the Times

A cheeky 'zero-euro' bill, issued by a German tourism agency to commemorate the bicentenary of Karl Marx's birth, has become a runaway success, with more than 100,000 wealth re-distributing purchases on record. Printed by Trier Tourism and Marketing in honor of Marx's 200th birthday, the original 5,000 'zero euro' notes sold out in less than a month. In the weeks that followed, collectors and tourists alike have pounced on the souvenir bills, with over 100,000 purchases of the commemorative banknote -which sells for three euros- to date. Marx was born in Trier, a city in southwest Germany, on May 5th, 1818. The faux bill - which features a portrait of Karl Marx - is slightly larger than a 20 euro note, and is made of the same security paper used by the European Union currency.

Trump Calls Omarosa That Dog as Campaign Takes Legal Step Against Her Truthdig RSS

WASHINGTONPresident Donald Trump escalated his messy clash with former aide Omarosa Manigault Newman on Tuesday, referring to the longtime colleague, who had been the top African-American in his White House, as that dog!

The pressure on Manigault Newman increased, as the Trump presidential campaign filed arbitration action against her, alleging a breach of a confidentiality agreement. A campaign official said the action was filed with the American Arbitration Association.

Trump tweeted a barrage of insults Tuesday morning as Manigault Newman continued promoting her White House tell-all and releasing secret audio recordings. Her book paints a damning picture of Trump, including her claim that he used racial slurs on the set of his reality show The Apprentice.

When you give a crazed, crying lowlife a break, and give her a job at the White House, I guess it just didnt work out, Trump said. Good work by General Kelly for quickly firing that dog! John Kelly is White House chief of staff.

While Trump trades in insults on a near daily basis, deeming Manigault Newman a dog was a stunning move in a row that touched on several sensitive issues in Trumps White House, including a lack of racial diversity among senior officials, security concerns Manigault Newman taped her firing in the White House Situation Room and extraordinary measures such as non-disclosure agreements to keep ex-employees quiet.

Trump has also pushed back against Manigault Newmans claim that she had heard an audiotape of him using the N-word. He tweeted that he had received a call from the producer of The Apprentice assuring him there are NO TAPES of the Apprentice where I used such a terrible and disgusting word as attributed by Wacky and Deranged Omarosa.

Trump insisted, I dont have that word in my vocabulary, and never have. He said Manigault Newman had called him a true Champion of Civil Rights until she was fired.

Manigault Newman, the former White House liaison to black voters, writes in her new memoir that shed heard such tapes existed. She said Sunday that she had listened to one after the book closed.

On CBS on Tuesday, Manigault Newman released another audio recording that she said showed campaign workers discussing an alleged recording of Trump using the racial slur. The White House and the campaign did not immediately respond to questions.

One of the people allegedly featured on the tape is Katrina Pierson, an adviser to Trumps re-election campaign who served as a spokeswoman for his 2016 campaign. Pierson has said she never heard Trump use this type of language and said on Fox that the only person she heard talking about a tape was Manigault Newman. The tape appears to show Pierson saying of Trump: He said it. Hes embarrassed....

Before Attack on Corbyn for Wreath-Laying, Netanyahu Celebrated Terror Attack that Killed 28 Brits MintPress News

LONDON After months of a concerted U.K. media campaign aimed at painting Jeremy Corbyns solidarity with Palestine as anti-Semitism, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu jumped in the ring on Monday, accusing the leader of the Labour Party via Twitter of having laid a wreath on the graves of the terrorist[s] who perpetrated the Munich massacre.

Netanyahus tweet came after U.K. newspaper the Daily Mail published a story based around photos of a 2014 event honoring those killed in a 1985 Israeli airstrike on the Palestinian Liberation Organizations (PLO) offices in Tunis, Tunisia at which Corbyn was present.

According to a report from the Guardian, some of the people honored at that ceremony were believed to be connected [emphasis added] to Black September, which carried out the terror attack on Israelis at the 1972 Olympics, in which 11 people died. Subsequently, that suspicion has been used to paint Corbyns attendance at the event as proof of his having commemorated terrorists who attacked Israelis.

However, it must be noted that the 1985 airstrike on PLO offices in Tunis, which Corbyn claims he was commemorating at the event, killed an estimated 60 people and wounded at least 60 more. Many of the dead were women and children, many of them Tunisians, according to a New York Times report on the incident. At the time, the Tunisian Ambassador to France, Hedi Mabrouk, called the strike state terrorism on Israels part.

Donald Trump's biggest success, thus far into his Presidency, has been his sale of $400 billion (originally $350 billion) of U.S.-made weapons to the Saudi Arabian Government, which is owned by its royal family, after whom that nation is named. This sale alone is big enough to be called Trump's "jobs plan" for Americans. It is also the biggest weapons-sale in all of history. It's 400 billion dollars, not 400 million dollars; it is gigantic, and, by far, unprecedented in world-history.

'An enormously dangerous situation': New US military budget halts Open Skies pact, almost axes nuclear arms reduction deal with Russia Signs of the Times

The US has suspended its Open Skies Treaty with Russia after President Donald Trump signed a giant 2019 defense budget bill. Lawmakers also tried to derail a milestone nuclear arms deal that has been in place since 2011. Trump signed the $716 billion National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) on Monday, and it will come into effect ahead of the new fiscal year in October. But some key deals with Russia were targeted by lawmakers. The 1992 Open Skies Treaty, which allowed for mutual observation flights, was suspended. Congress wants President Trump to penalize Russia for what it says are violations of the treaty. However, Moscow says the charges are unfounded and maintains that it has always acted strictly in accordance with the agreement.

Saudi-US Propaganda by PBS NewsHour in Houthi-held Yemen Dissident Voice

One of the poorest countries in the Middle East, Yemens war has pushed it to the brink of famine. A Saudi blockade has slowed the flow of food and helped push prices up. Markets and businesses are ruined from airstrikes. Millions are destitute. Special correspondent Jane Ferguson smuggled herself across front lines to report on whats happening inside the worlds worst humanitarian disaster.

 PBS NewsHour summary, July 2, 2018

This is what American tax-supported propaganda looks like when an organization like the PBS NewsHour wants to maintain a semblance of credibility while lying through its intimidated teeth. Yes, Yemen is one of the poorest countries in the world, long dependent on imported food and other life support. But to say Yemens war is major league deceit, and PBS surely knows the truth: that the war on Yemen is American-backed, initiated illegally in March 2015 by a Saudi-led coalition that includes the UAE (United Arab Emirates). The US/Saudi war is genocidal, creating famine and a cholera epidemic for military purposes. These are American and Arab war crimes that almost no one wants to acknowledge, much less confront.

The Saudi blockade is also a US Navy blockade. The blockade is a war crime. Starving civilians is a war crime.

The most amazing sentence is: Markets and businesses are ruined from airstrikes. Seems rather bland. But this is a tacit admission of more war crimes Saudi bombing of civilian businesses, as well as civilian hospitals, weddings, and funerals. But PBS makes it sound like the airstrikes sort of come out of nowhere, like the rain. PBS omits the American culpability that makes the airstrikes possible: mid-air refueling, targeting support, intelligence sharing, and the rest. Think of Guernica, the fascist bombing of civilians that inspired Picassos painting. Now think of Guernica lasting three years. Thats what the US has supported in Yemen and thats what PBS helps cover up.

Yes, Millions are destitute, and yes, this is the worlds worst humanitarian disaster. But an honest news organization might go on to note that the destitution and the disaster are deliberate results of the worlds most relentless war crime.

From a journalistic perspective, getting the perky blonde reporter Jane Ferguson into northern Yemen, where the Houthis have been in control since 2014, is an accomplishment of note. There has been little firsthand reporting from Houthi Yemen, where the worst war crimes have been committed and the worst suffering continues. Fergusons presence was certainly an opportunity for serious i...

Efforts to Make Gold Money Popping Up Around the Globe The Event Chronicle

By Larry White

Recently, we featured articles on the efforts by economist Keith Weiner and the new gold payment system Glint to encourage people to use gold as money again. There is a bit of a trend in place now around the world as various initiatives move forward on that front.

Below we will list a few of the more high profile efforts underway and provide a brief update on where each one stands as of today. We will follow this over time to see if the trend continues and picks up momentum.


Goldmoney  Precious metals investing and payment system

Goldmoney has been involved in the effort to make it easier to use gold like money for some time now. They offer a variety of precious metals investments and also a payment system app they describe this way on their web site:

The Goldmoney App for iOS and Android provides access to all Dashboard features and functions, enabling you to manage your Holding and buy, sell, exchange, and redeem precious metal bullion through an easy-to-use and highly secure interface. Need to make a payment? Send and accept precious metal payments to and from other Goldmoney Holdings and businesses, and earn metals by referring friends and family to Goldmoney.

Goldmoney has also announced they plan to expand their services into China. This is some news that will be interesting to follow over time. In their most recent conference call, CEO Roy Sebag talked about moving into China:

If I can move on to Goldmoney China. This is a venture were also very excited about. We are rapidly approaching launch date.   



What were presently doing, in terms of the technical aspects of the launch, is we are hiring and training Mandarin-speaking relationship managers, Mandarin-speaking compliant staff, and beginning to test out live accounts. The entire build-out of Goldmoney China has been completed in both the back-end and the front-end. The URL is actually available. We purchased the domain Goldmoney.cn. And, we have also set up a local server within the Great Chinese Firewall. So, we ask our investors to stay tuned, but we expect this venture will be launched with...

Beyond The DNC Leaks, Hacks, and Treason MintPress News

People have been divided about the DNC hack-leak ever since the story began with the Chalupa-Isikoff article. These divisions run so deep they mark where people stand politically. Mutually exclusive positions range from whether or not Russians hacked the DNC or if the information was downloaded and then leaked, presumably by Seth Rich.  All three are different positions.

This article culminates what Ive learned about the hack-leak and the Information Operation surrounding this. It presents a much different perspective.

There were multiple DNC hacks. There is also clear proof supporting the download to a USB stick and subsequent information exchange (leak) to Wikileaks. All are separate events.

Heres whats different in the information Ive compiled.

  • The group I previously identified as Fancy Bear was given access to request password privileges at the DNC. And it looks like the DNC provided them with it.
  • Ill show why the Podesta email hack looks like a revenge hack.
  • The reason Republican opposition research files were stolen can be put into context now because we know who the hackers are and what motivates them.

At the same time this story developed, it overshadowed the Hillary Clinton email scandal. It is a matter of public record that Team Clinton provided the DNC hackers with passwords to State Department servers on at least 2 occasions, one wittingly and one not. I have already clearly shown the Fancy Bear hackers are Ukrainian Intelligence Operators.

This gives some credence to the Seth Rich leak (DNC leak story) as an act of patriotism. If the leak came through Seth Rich, it may have been because he saw foreign Intel operatives given this access from the presumed winners of the 2016 US presidential election. No political operative is going to argue with the presumed president-elect over foreign policy. The leaker may have been trying to do something about it. Im curious what information Wikileaks might have.

The real crime of the DNC hack wasnt the hack.

If only half of the following proved true in context and its a matter of public record, that makes the argument to stop funding for Ukraine immediately barring an investigation of high crimes by Ukrainian Diaspora, Democrat, and Republican leaders in Congress, private Intel for hire, and Ukrainian Intels attacks on the US government and political processes.

Perhaps its time Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump should consider treason investigations across the board. Make America great again by bringing justice and civility back...

Facebook Exec Threatens News Outlets in Private Meeting Truthdig RSS

During a closed-door and off-the-record meeting last week, top Facebook executive Campbell Brown reportedly warned news publishers that refusal to cooperate with the tech behemoths efforts to revitalize journalism will leave media outlets dying like in a hospice.

Reported first by The Australian under a headline which read Work With Facebook or Die: Zuckerberg, the social media giant has insisted the comments were taken out of context, even as five individuals who attended the four-hour meeting corroborated what Brown had stated.

Mark doesnt care about publishers but is giving me a lot of leeway and concessions to make these changes, Brown reportedly said, referring to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. We will help you revitalize journalism in a few years the reverse looks like Ill be holding hands with your dying business like in a hospice.

As The Guardian reported on Monday, Facebook is vehemently denying the veracity of the comments as reported by The Australian, referring to its own transcript of the meeting. However, Facebook is refusing to release its transcript and tape of the gathering.

Browns warning about the dire prospects for news outlets that dont get on board with a future in which corporate giants like Facebook are the arbiters of what is and isnt trustworthy news comes as progressives are raising alarm that Facebooks entrance into the world of journalism poses a major threat to non-corporate and left-wing news outlets.

25 Killed in Bridge Collapse on Main Highway Linking Italy to France Truthdig RSS

MILANA bridge on a main highway linking Italy with France collapsed Tuesday in the Italian port city of Genoa during a sudden, violent storm, sending vehicles plunging 45 meters (nearly 150 feet) into a heap of rubble. The citys mayor said at least 25 people were killed, although some people were found alive in the debris.

A huge section of the Morandi Bridge fell at midday over an industrial zone, sending tons of twisted steel and concrete onto warehouses below. Photos from the Italian news agency ANSA showed a massive gap between two sections of the bridge.

The head of Italys civil protection agency, Angelo Borrelli, said 30-35 cars and three heavy trucks were on the 80-meter (260-foot) section of the bridge that collapsed.

Hundreds of firefighters and emergency officials were searching for survivors in the rubble with heavy equipment. Firefighters said at least two people were pulled alive from vehicles and taken by helicopter to a hospital.

Video of the collapse captured a man screaming: Oh, God! Oh, God! Other images showed a green truck that had stopped just short of the edge and the tires of a tractor trailer in the rubble.

There was confusion over the exact death toll, which kept rising during the day.

Genoa Mayor Marco Bucci told Sky TG24 that the number of dead was above 25 people and that 11 injured were pulled from the rubble. Two other officials earlier put the death toll at 22 with 13 injured but said it was expected to rise.

Borrelli told a news conference in Rome that all the victims appeared to all have been in vehicles that fell from the bridge.

The disaster occurred on a highway that connects Italy to France, and northern cities like Milan to the beaches of Liguria.

The collapse also came on the eve of a major Italian summer holiday on Wednesday called Ferragosto, which marks the religious feast of the Assumption of Mary. Its the high point of the Italian summer holiday season, when most cities and business are closed and Italians head to the beaches or the mountains. That means traffic could have been heavier than usual on the Genoa highway.

The Morandi Bridge is a main thoroughfare connecting the A10 highway that goes toward France and the A7 highway that continues north toward Milan. Inaugurated in 1967, it is just over a kilometer (.6 miles) long.

Borrelli said highway engineers were checking other parts of the bridge and that some areas were being evacuated as a precaution. He said they were still trying to figure out the reason for the collapse.

You can see there are very big portions of the bridge (that collapsed). We need to remove all of the rubble to ascertain that all of the people have been reached, he said, adding that more than 280 rescue workers and dogs units were on the scene.

Operations are ongoing to extract people imprisoned below parts of the bridge and twist...

Swedish PM 'pissed off' as masked youths set dozens of cars on fire across country Signs of the Times

Youths have vandalized Swedish cities unhindered overnight, setting fire to dozens of cars in what are believed to be coordinated acts of arson. The attacks infuriated officials, with a minister demanding "the thugs" be punished. Masked youths went on the rampage in various Swedish cities on Monday evening, setting ablaze around 80 vehicles, according to police. Cars in parking lots were seen burning in dramatic footage taken in Gothenburg, Trollhttan, Lysekil and Falkenberg, as well as in Stockholm and Uppsala, where an additional 13 vehicles were attacked, according to the Expressen tabloid. The series of arson attacks are believed to be linked, with Gothenburg police suggesting that the perpetrators, some of whom are identified as underage, used social media to coordinate the acts, spokesperson Ulla Brehm told SVT.

Caspian Sea Convention Signed to Open New Prospects for Region MintPress News

Good news came on Aug.12 the Caspian Sea Day marked since 2007 by littoral states. A final comprehensive open-ended agreement to solve a major international controversial issue was clinched in Aktau, Kazakhstan. Russia, Iran, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, and Turkmenistan signed a convention on the Caspian Seas legal status the Caspian Sea Convention (CSC). Providing clear guidelines for the collective use of the Sea, it puts an end to the international dispute that has lasted more than two decades. The agreement will ease tensions in the region and pave the way for lucrative energy projects as well as more military cooperation between the Caspian states.

The seabed holds about 50 billion barrels of oil and nearly 9 trillion cubic meters of natural gas in proven or probable reserves, which cost trillions of US dollars. The final delimitation of the seabed will require additional agreements between littoral nations to supplement the convention.

The document refers to the Caspian as a sea (not a lake) with a special legal status. Each country has the right to establish territorial waters not exceeding 15 nautical miles from the shoreline. A further 10 nautical miles are defined as exclusive fishing zones. The remaining surface of the sea is kept for common use. The state sovereignty of littoral states spreads over the sea surface until the outer border of their territorial waters, as well as to the seabed below and airspace above this area. Mutually agreed on seabed security zones limited to 500 meters could be established along the perimeter of respective sectors around artificially created objects on the condition that they dont exceed 500 meters from the outer points. In no case should sovereign rights of the parties be undermined. The Caspian Five can lay underwater cables and pipelines along the bottom of the Caspian Sea, subject only to the agreement of those states whose sectors the pipelines or cables will pass through.

The agreement keeps most of the sea in shared use but divides up the seabed and underground resources. The five littoral nations will establish a Caspian economic forum.

A stipulation in the document prevents non-Caspian countries from deploying military forces on the sea. The freedom of navigation for military ships is important for Russia, which plans to move its warships equipped with Kalibr long-range land attack cruise missiles from Astrakhan to Derbent, closer to maritime borders. With Kalibr missiles entry into service, the role of the Russian Caspian Flotilla has grown. The convention envisages that naval vessels are to abide by certain rules, especially in littoral and economic zones. With five navies operating in the area, incidents prevention is a matter of special importance and there is a consensus on that. In early August, Russia, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan and Azerbaija...

Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) Files on Alexander Shulgin The Black Vault

Background

According to Wikipedia:

Alexander Theodore Sasha Shulgin (June 17, 1925 June 2, 2014) was an American medicinal chemist, biochemist, organic chemist, pharmacologist, psychopharmacologist, and author. He is credited with introducing MDMA (ecstasy or molly) to psychologists in the late 1970s for psychopharmaceutical use and for the discovery, synthesis and personal bioassay of over 230 psychoactive compounds for their psychedelic and entactogenic potential. In 1991 and 1997, he and his wife Ann Shulgin authored the books PIHKAL and TIHKAL (standing for Phenethylamines and Tryptamines I Have Known And Loved), which extensively described their work and personal experiences with these two classes of psychoactive drugs.

Shulgin performed seminal work into the descriptive synthesis of many of these compounds. Some of Shulgins noteworthy discoveries include compounds of the 2C* family (such as 2C-B) and compounds of the DOx family (such as DOM). Due in part to Shulgins extensive work in the field of psychedelic research and the rational drug design of psychedelic drugs, he has since been dubbed the godfather of psychedelics.

In February of 2018, I requested FBI records and DEA records on Shulgin. The FBI in FOIA Case 1309368-000 gave a no records response, but the DEA released the below files.

Dormant California supervolcano found to sit atop 240 cubic miles of magma Signs of the Times

Scientists have discovered 240 cubic miles of semi-molten magma below the Long Valley Caldera, a supervolcano in eastern California near Mammoth Mountain. The long-dormant supervolcano is currently a 20-mile-long caldera, or a crater that forms after an eruption forces the mouth of a volcano to collapse. According to an August report published in the scientific journal Geology, the semi-molten magma found could lead to possible eruptions. The supervolcano erupted 760,000 years ago and blanketed land within a 30-mile radius in hot ash. Volcanic material from the eruption was even detected in Nebraska, but the volcano has been dormant for the last 100,000 years.

Hothouse Earth Dissident Voice

An interesting new study:1 lays out the pathway for Earth entering a Hothouse Climate State.

Our planet is still in danger of becoming a Hothouse Earth despite our current efforts to manage global warming.

Counter-intuitively, that sounds like a breath of fresh air, meaning, get the bad news out of the way ahead of time so people can brace for it, no surprises. Assuming the Hothouse Planet happens, certain areas would be uninhabitable as global temps crank up to 4C-to-5C beyond pre-industrial. The planet would be gnarled and unattractive, a nasty place to live, no more Goldilocks climate. And, all kinds of warfare would breakout as mobs vie for tillable land.

The articles general thesis is that, as of today, the planet retains its Goldilocks not too hot, not too cold swagger because of a series of natural mechanisms that maintain a balance, for example, carbon sinks, like the ocean or like the Amazon Rain Forest keep the balance in place. In fact, the study identifies ten tipping elements that maintain a balance for the planet, any one of which, once out of whack, would cascade into all the others, bringing on the onset of a hothouse planet.

Assuming the world exceeds the 2C pre-industrial marker set by the Paris Agreement, the study envisions a dangerous out of control spiral downwards, as planetary mechanisms crash in domino fashion, resulting in a planetary climate hothouse. Maybe thats what happened to Venus (865F, CO2 950,000 ppm) millennia ago.

According to the PNAS article, hothouse prevention is reducing carbon emissions ASAP with countries working together towards a common goal, including decarbonization, enhancement of carbon sinks, blah-blah-blah. Stop right there! The U.S. is already out of the deal and furthermore its a pipe dream to assume countries will come together globally to save the planet. Since the dawn of civilization, tribes, then empires, then nation/states have been fighting like cats and dogs locked together in a crowded teeny-weeny room.

Heres the issue as outlined by the study: It only takes one of the mechanisms to break down and topple all of the others. Ipso facto, that presents a problem today. The tipping elements, of which there are ten, include: (1) thawing permafrost (2) loss of coral reefs (3) loss of Arctic summer sea ice. Those three mechanisms alone, according to some pretty smart scientists, are already goners, or very, very close to goners.

What if the tipping elements mentioned in the study have already tipped or tip way ahead of plan? Then what happens, as...

Are Russia and the BRICS Still Interested in Bypassing the US Dollar? The Event Chronicle

By Larry White

If you are going to try and cover the potential for monetary system change like we do here, one aspect you have to mention is the ongoing effort by a number of nations to construct some kind of system that can bypass the US dollar. 

We have covered that quite a bit here and have noted that both Russia and China have made it pretty clear in public statements that they would like to find ways around the US dollar dominated monetary system since it provides the US with a lot of leverage globally.

This article appearing in Russia Today back in late 2017 provides more evidence that this effort continues even though it clearly moves very slowly. Very recently Russian President Putin said that Russia is not rejecting the dollarbut added that with the US imposing sanctions on Russia, it must take actions to minimize risks associated with holding US dollars. He also said that the US undermines trust in the dollar as the reserve currency by imposing restrictions on settlements in dollars. He went on to say that US actions prompt dozens of countries to consider other options.

Below are some excerpts from the RT article from last year and then just a few added comments. I added the underline for emphasis.


An initiative to create a joint digital currency for BRICS countries and the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU) has been proposed by the Central Bank of Russia, according to its First Deputy Governor Olga Skorobogatova.

She said the issue of a common cryptocurrency for a number of countries is very promising, more than that for a single nation.

The participants of different economic events where I usually take part all come to the conclusion the issue of a virtual currency is not needed much by one country. First of all, it makes sense to discuss the cryptocurrency on the level of several countries such as BRICS and EEU. It makes sense to set one equivalent for all payments, Skorobogatova said at a Russian finance ministry meeting.

. . . . .

The introduction of a national digital currency seems to us not entirely justified from the point of view of macroeconomics, population said Skorobogatova.

. . . . . 

In September, the chief of the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) Kirill Dmitriev said the BRICS finance committee was discussing a joint virtual currency for the five-nation bloc of developing economies of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa.

U.S. National Debt Now Equivalent to the Amount of Money Missing from the Treasury Waking Times

Isaac Davis Staff Writer
Waking Times

In March of 2018, the U.S. national debt topped $21 trillion dollars, and now the average debt liability for an individual taxpayer is projected to be $161,022 by 2019. This means that every American taxpayer pretty much owes the government a house, when you consider that the median house price is around $200,000.

Thats right, even your happy, bubbly one-year-old future taxpayer, who is too new to the planet to have any idea what any of this means, will owe someone else a house by the time shes old enough to get a job.

At present, even though the government is collecting record high individual income taxes, the debt continues to rise, as do taxes, fees, permits, regulations, and government sponsored extortion of citizens. This doesnt bode well for the average American.

With the debt per taxpayer as high as it is, if the government continues to raise taxes on middle income earners and above, it will become increasingly difficult for many of these individuals to preserve their standard of living. This will result in a reduction of wealth that spans the entire income spectrum, excluding perhaps the super-rich. [Source]

Remarkably, at the same time the debt hit $21 trillion, others were noticing that the publicly available number of unaccounted for, or lost or stolen, taxpayer dollars is also now at $21 trillion. Most of this seems to have gone missing from the Pentagon.

Coincidence?

U.K. Police Treat Parliament Crash as Terrorism, Man Arrested Truthdig RSS

LONDONA car plowed into pedestrians and cyclists near the Houses of Parliament in London during the morning rush hour Tuesday, injuring three people in what police suspect is the latest in a string of attacks in the British capital that used vehicles as weapons.

A rooftop camera recorded the car driving past Parliament and suddenly veering sharply to the left, striking cyclists waiting at a set of lights before crossing the road and crashing into a barrier outside Parliament. Armed police surrounded the car within seconds, pulling a man from the vehicle.

Police said the driver, a man in his late 20s, was arrested on suspicion of terrorism offenses. He was alone and no weapons were found in the car.

Given that this appears to be a deliberate act, the method and this being an iconic site, we are treating it as a terrorist incident, Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu of the Metropolitan Police told reporters outside Scotland Yard.

Police flooded the area after the incident was reported at 7:37 a.m., cordoning off streets surrounding the heart of Britains government. The nearby Westminster subway station was closed, and police asked people to stay away from the area, which is filled with government offices and major tourist attractions including Westminster Abbey.

Most of the cordons were lifted by mid-afternoon, apart from a stretch of road right outside Parliament, where forensics officers in blue coveralls collected evidence from the crashed Ford Fiesta.

The suspect was not cooperating with police, and officers were working to confirm his identity, said Basu, who oversees U.K. counterterrorism policing. No other suspects have been identified and police believe there is no further threat to Londoners, he said.

Basu said we dont believe this individual was known to police or Britains intelligence services.

Eyewitnesses said the silver car was traveling at high speed when it hit pedestrians and cyclists, then crashed into a barrier designed to protect Parliament from vehicle attack. Two people were taken to local hospitals and another was treated at the scene. One woman remained hospitalized Tuesday afternoon, but her injuries arent believed to be life threatening, authorities said.

The car drove at speed into the barriers outside the House of Lords. There was a loud bang from the collision and a bit of smoke, Ewelina Ochab told The Associated Press. The driver did not get out. The guards started screaming to people to move away.

Jason Williams also saw a car moving at high speed.

It didnt look like an accident, he said. How do you do that by accident?

Donovan Parsons, a cameraman for ITVs Good Morning Britain, was filming outside Parliament when he heard a loud crash.

Puerto Rico Teachers Rally to Save Schools

Teachers and community members surrounded the Capitol Building in San Juan to symbolize a Shield To Protect Public Education in Puerto Rico.

Puerto Rican teachers anger builds against privatization, firings and lack of pay raises

14 August 2018

Anger is mounting among teachers in Puerto Rico against privatization plans by the government, dwindling enrollment and firings. Teachers are demanding the delivery of promised raises, smaller class sizes and knowledge about where they will be assigned in the new school year.

In an effort to defuse this anger, the Puerto Rico Teachers Federation (FMPR) has announced plans for a one-day strike on August 15. The FMPR cites members indignation and outrage with the government and the Department of Education in the face of attacks on teachers and students. Teachers will convene Wednesday in San Juan at the Plaza Colon and will march from there to La Forteleza, the governors office.

In a press release, the FMPR stated, The public education system, together with its fundamental components, the students and their teachers, have suffered the most brutal attack in history. Secretary of Education Julia Keleher has decreed the closure of some 450 schools in two years and has reduced the number of educators from 31,000 in 2016...

Investigative Journalist found dead in D.C. hotel room weeks after reporting Bill Clinton to FBI & DHS for allegedly raping boy Signs of the Times

Investigative Journalist Jen Moore was found dead in a suburban Washington D.C. hotel room Monday, according to police and shocked and distraught friends and colleagues. Moore died of an apparent seizure. Police are closely investigating the cause of death after former FBI Agent Robyn Gritz, a friend of Moore's, made inquiries with homicide detectives Monday afternoon in Prince Georges County, Maryland. Preliminary reports from police said the death was not the result of suicide. Moore's body was found by employees at the Country Inn & Suites by Radisson, Washington, D.C. East - in Capitol Heights, Maryland. The investigation is ongoing. An autopsy had not been scheduled as of late Monday. Moore, an advocate who investigated abused and trafficked children, had been in the process of investigating allegations by a 26-year-old man that - as a young boy - he was sexually assaulted by Bill Clinton and pimped out at private sex parties attended by other D.C. elites.

UN report documents torture and murder of civilians by Ukrainian military in Ilovaysk in 2014 Signs of the Times

On August 9, the UN Human Rights Monitoring Mission in Ukraine published an extremely important report documenting the killing and torture of civilians by the Ukrainian military during the Ilovaysk events 2014, as well as the killing of captured Ukrainian soldiers. The head of the UN Monitoring Mission, Fiona Frazer, has claimed that, in addition to other important information, the report contains evidence that three Ukrainian soldiers captured by the DPR militia were killed, at least four wounded Ukrainian soldiers died as a result of inadequate medical care, and on August 31 and September 1 [2014], around 300 captured Ukrainian soldiers and volunteers were taken to three different places of detention where "the conditions of detention were inhumane and degrading." The UN report concluded that violations of human rights and the rights of prisoners of war were committed by both sides of the conflict. And yet the report shows that it was the Ukrainian military that was responsible for war crimes against civilians. The head of the UN mission criticized Kiev: "We welcome the investigation of Ukraine's General Prosecutor's Office on the cases of tortures and ill-treatment towards the Ukrainian military by the armed groups, yet the majority of human rights violations, supposedly committed by the Ukrainian forces against the civilians, is not being investigated." According to Frazer, to date the mission has 13 documented cases of people tortured or mistreated by Ukrainian battalions in Ilovaysk and surrounding villages, but these have not been investigated. In terms of other documentation, at least 35 civilians were killed and 600 houses destroyed.

Utah Man Flies Plane Into His Own House After Argument With Wife (Photos, Video) The Daily Sheeple

A Cessna Citation 525, similar to the aircraft Duane Youd crashed into his own house / Wikipedia

A Utah man flew a small aircraft into his own house, kamikaze-style, hours after he had been arrested for assaulting his wife during an argument, police say.

Duane Youd, 47, died in the crash, as the light-skinned Cessna disintegrated on impact and burst into flames. Youds wife and a child, both inside the house, survived and the house remained intact.

Youd had been arrested by police in Payson, Utah, earlier on Sunday, after witnesses reported seeing him assault his wife. The troubled couple had been drinking and had gone to a scenic local spot to talk their problems through, Sgt. Spencer Cannon of the Utah County Sheriffs Office said.

After being booked on suspicion of domestic violence and released on bail, Youd was escorted home by an officer. From there, he set off for nearby Spanish Fork-Springville Airport, commandeered a plane and took off for home.

Dodging power lines and other houses, Youd plowed the plane into the front of his house at 2.30 am. Photos taken at the scene showed Youds front yard strewn with smoldering wreckage and the house charred and damaged from the fireball.

The Occult Cabal, Their Slave System, & Natural Law The Event Chronicle

Alright Higherside Chatters, we have spent years talking about the problems of the world: War, poverty, geo-engineering, fluoride, petrochemicals, environmental destruction, materialism, greed, false flags, & everything in between in this Rockefeller/Rothschild debt based system of rule and sometimes I get a bit concerned that all we do is pat ourselves on the back for another educational circle jerk while we sit and wait for someone else to overthrow the power pyramid and the yolks of oppression we seem so cozy in.

And an uncomfortable truth we must confront is the relationship between slave and master- the cause and effect of following orders, and the dont rock the boat attitude we take, as long as our cage is a little bit nicer than the next guys.

Yet when one truly examines the world we find ourselves in- you see a multitude of constructs holding us in place that have nothing to do with the natural world: A never ending framework of legalese that privileges the dark occults in the drivers seat and punishes the people who put their faith in it. A hypnotic obsession with green paper, thanks to the spellcrafters behind the curtain. & a system of artificial scarcity aimed at maintaining the illusion that abundance is only a fantasy.

Well, these are the tenants of todays guest, and true freedom fighter- the ever-passionate Mark Passio. Mark initially rejected his religious upbringing by becoming a Satanist as an early act of rebellion, and eventually was even offered a position as a priest in the Church of Satan by Anton LaVey himself. But after leaving the dark community of group-thinkhe forged his path as a true individual- studying the vast and complex depths of metaphysics, occultism, spirituality, symbolism, consciousness and more.and for the last 10 years, has been bringing this knowledge to light through his website, videos, presentations, and weekly radio show which can be found at www.WhatOnEarthIsHappening.com

Alliance Between Syria and YPG Deepens Ahead of Idlib Offensive, Provoking an Unpredictable Turkey MintPress News

ALEPPO, SYRIA With military forces from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Russia gathering around Syrias rebel-held Idlib province, the last major military offensive of Syrias seven-year-long war may only be weeks away. As the noose tightens around Idlib, the last hold-out for majority of terrorist fighters still active in Syria, the Syrian army seems to have secured the help of a new military ally: the Kurdish Peoples Protection Units (YPG).

Turkish media reported on Sunday that 1,300 YPG fighters have been transferred to Aleppo over the course of the past two weeks to take part in the upcoming Syrian military offensive against the rebel-controlled Idlib province. According to those reports, the last of the YPG convoys arrived in Aleppo from Manbij on Saturday.

The Turkish newspaper The Daily Sabah, citing a report from the Turkish state-funded outlet Anadolu News Agency, stated that the YPGs participation in the upcoming offensive would mark the first time that YPG forces have allied with the Syrian Arab Army on the battlefield since the conflict began. The report also asserted that the YPG plans to strengthen good relations with the regime and Russia by supporting the [Syrian] regimes attacks on the opposition. However, it is worth noting that the YPG expressed interest in battling terror groups within Idlib long before its new alliance with the Syrian government emerged.

News of a YPG-SAA military alliance may come as a surprise as the YPG and related Kurdish groups in Northern Syria chose to ally themselves with the United States early on in the conflict. Indeed, the YPG have long ...

Playing catch-up: US orders $480-mn hypersonic missile prototype to counter Russia Signs of the Times

The US Air Force paid $480 million for a second top-spec hypersonic missile prototype to gain ground "in the era of great power competition," following reports of Russia's successes in developing unrivaled high-speed weapons. The Air Force awarded a $480-million contract to Lockheed Martin, tasking the company with designing a second hypersonic missile prototype, referred to as the Air-Launched Rapid Response Weapon (ARRW). Lockheed Martin will design, test and support the production of the weapon, according to a US Air Force statement. Comment: The US Air Force should have added: "Lockheed Martin will design, test and support the production of the weapon, will charge way too much for it, and in all likelihood it will be a piece of junk like the F-35." The Pentagon, Missile Defense Agency, Air Force and Navy have all agreed to work on the development of top hypersonic technologies that would enable the US to go toe-to-toe with potential adversaries, it said. "The Joint Team requires the right mix of agile capabilities to compete, deter and win across the spectrum of competition and conflict," said Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. David L. Goldfein. "We must push the boundaries of technology and own the high ground in this era of great power competition and beyond." The Lockheed-led ARRW effort is one of two hypersonic projects being pursued by the Air Force. Earlier this year, the same company won another $928-million deal with the US Air Force for the development of the Hypersonic Conventional Strike Weapon (HCSW, or "Hacksaw").

Italy interferes (again) in Libyan politics, calls to postpone election, wants land for military base Signs of the Times

This past week Italy, a country that committed innumerable crimes against humanity in Libya in the past with their fascist colonialism, has begun again to try and control the sovereign country of Libya. The reason Italy feels it can attempt this criminal move again is because the President of the US, Donald Trump, has put his imprimatur on Italy's desire to once again own the country of Libya and her assets. To that end, the Italian Ambassador to Libya made some statements that are not only out of his range of influence but also against the sovereign people of Libya. Giuseppe Perrone, Italy's Ambassador to Libya, called insistently for the Libyan elections, due to take place in December of this year, to be postponed. This man has no jurisdiction and no authority over the country of Libya. Yet, he has the hubris to dictate to the Libyan people because Trump has agreed for Italy to lead some so called "steering committee" in the Mediterranean regarding Libya. Also, adding to this slap in face of the Libyan people, Italy has requested to acquire land to build an Italian military base in Libya and is stating that some of the land in Tripoli belongs to Italy as it had been theirs during their occupation of Libya before 1969. Neither Trump nor Italy have the right to dictate to the Libyan people. Foreign intervention has caused all the trouble in Libya since 2011. These arrogant acts by Trump and the Italian Prime Minister, Giuseppe Conte, prove that the USA and Italy are Zionists New World Order puppets The people of Libya suffered heinous crimes against humanity from 1923 through 1932 during which time Italy had taken over their country. The Italians could not conquer the tribes of the desert who were led by the great Omar Mukhtar so they resorted to horrible crimes against the people, using gas, starvation, razor wires across the desert, concentration camps etc., almost finishing a complete genocide of the Libyan people. Even after WWII, the Italians remained on Libyan soil, having stolen all of Libya's farm-able land and using Libyans as their slaves. Not until the 1969 bloodless coup/revolution of the great tribes of Libya did the Libyan people experience their freedom for the first time in most of their long 8000 year history. Moammar Ghadafi was appointed leader by the tribes and he immediately gave the people the land they had been working as slaves. He also raised Libya to the most developed country in Africa and brought his people out of darkness to learn and understand what it meant to be free, to live, to learn to achieve. All of this was of course destroyed by NATO and their phony false flag revolution in 2011.

From Boston to Ferguson to Charlottesville: The Evolution of a Police State Lockdown Dissident Voice

It takes a remarkable force to keep nearly a million people quietly indoors for an entire day, home from work and school, from neighborhood errands and out-of-town travel. It takes a remarkable force to keep businesses closed and cars off the road, to keep playgrounds empty and porches unused across a densely populated place 125 square miles in size. This happened not because armed officers went door-to-door, or imposed a curfew, or threatened martial law. All around the region, for 13 hours, people locked up their businesses and sheltered in place out of a kind of collective will. The force that kept them there wasnt external there was virtually no active enforcement across the city of the governors plea that people stay indoors. Rather, the pressure was an internal one expressed as concern, or helpfulness, or in some cases, fear felt in thousands of individual homes.

Journalist Emily Badger, The Psychology of a Citywide Lockdown, April 22, 2013

It has become way too easy to lockdown this nation.

Five years ago, the city of Boston was locked down while police carried out a military-style manhunt for suspects in the 2013 Boston Marathon explosion.

Four years ago, the city of Ferguson, Missouri, was locked down, with government officials deploying a massive SWAT team, an armored personnel carrier, men in camouflage pointing heavy artillery at the crowd, smoke bombs and tear gas to quell citizen unrest over a police shooting of a young, unarmed black man.

Three years ago, the city of Baltimore was put under a military-enforced lockdown after civil unrest over police brutality erupted into rioting. More than 1,500 national guard troops were deployed while residents were ordered to stay inside their homes and put under a 10 pm curfew.

This year, it was my hometown of Charlottesville, Va., population 50,000, that was locked down while government officials declared a state of emergency and enacted heightened security measures tantamount to martial law, despite the absence of any publicized information about credible threats to public safety.

World Jewish Congress President Fears Impact of Israels Destructive Actions MintPress News

Ronald S. Lauder, president of the World Jewish Congress (WJC), has warned the Israeli government of the likely impact of its destructive actions on the states relationship with Jews worldwide.

Writing in the New York Times, Lauder urges Israels government to listen to the voices of protest and outrage being heard in Israel and throughout the Jewish world.

The WJC president also pointed to steps taken this year, including a law denying equal rights to same-sex couples, and the nation-state law  legislation that may have severe national and international repercussions.

Meanwhile, Lauder continued, last month, a Conservative rabbi was detained for the alleged crime of performing a non-Orthodox wedding ceremony in Israel. In several municipalities, attempts were made to disrupt secular life by closing convenience stores on the Sabbath.

According to Lauder, many Jews now wonder if the nation they cherish is losing its way.

Already today, the main challenge facing the Jewish diaspora is a deep and deepening generational divide, he wrote.

All over the world, and especially in North America, Jewish millennials are raising doubts that their parents and grandparents never raised. The commitment to Israel and Jewish institutions is not unconditional.

If present trends persist, Lauder warned, young Jewsmay not fight the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions movement, they may not support Israel in Washington and they may not provide it with the strategic rear guard that Israel so needs.

Instead of Paying Farmers Subsidies to Grow Unprofitable Crops, Wouldnt It Make More Sense to Legalize Hemp Agriculture and Unleash Billions in Profit Potential? The Event Chronicle

By Vicki Batts

President Donald Trump recently announced that a multi-billion dollar financial aid plan for farmers would soon be coming down the pike. The subsidies for farmers are intended to help farmers whove been hit hard by new, retaliatory tariffs. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue says the three-part, $12 billion plan will help ensure that farmers and ranchers arent overly burdened by the Trump administrations vigorous efforts to restore balance to the United States trade affairs.

Keeping American farmers in business is a top priority, no doubt. But many are wondering why this administration hasnt tried to shift focus onto a more profitable plant for farmers: hemp. It was recently revealed that the Senates 2018 Farm Bill included legislation which would legalize the cultivation of hemp here in the U.S. If passed, the bill would allow for hemp to be sold as an agricultural commodity and remove it from the list of federally controlled substances.

Further, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnells office reports that the bill would give hemp researchers the ability to apply for grants from the Agriculture Department and make hemp farmers eligible for crop insurance and states would be allowed to regulate hemp, too. This is all great news; hemp is a plant with enormous potential for profits. Why isnt it legal yet?

Hemp could revolutionize American farming industry

For farmers, hemp could be the next big thing. In fact, cultivating hemp could help restore agricultural economy in the U.S. While it may be illegal, hemp does not have the same psychoactive properties as its closely related (and also federally prohibited) cousin, cannabis. But it does share many of the same health benefits: Hemp contains cannabidiol (CBD) and can be used to make medicinal but non-psychoactive CBD extracts. Many people have turned to CBD extract as a last line of treatment for diseases like cancer.

But CBDs biggest claim to fame may be its ability to help children with intractable seizure disorders; the plant compound has been proven as an effective treatment for seizure disorders like Dravets syndrome. The FDA has even given a CBD synthetic produced by Big Pharma the green light. And yet, growing the plants which contain CBD on American soil remains illegal at a federal level.

More than 30 dead harbor seals wash ashore in southern Maine in 2 days Signs of the Times

Marine mammal experts are testing tissue samples for a potential common cause of the surge in carcasses found on the state's beaches this year. Marine mammal experts are at a loss to explain why a large number of harbor seals have turned up dead on beaches in southern Maine this summer. The most recent cluster of deaths was reported Monday when the carcasses of 11 harbor seals, mostly pups, were discovered on Bayview and Kinney Shores beaches in Saco. Those beaches are situated between Ocean Park and Ferry Beach State Park. In the past two days, more than 30 dead harbor seals have washed ashore on southern Maine beaches, including Wells Beach and Ogunquit Beach, said Lynda Doughty, executive director of Marine Mammals of Maine, which investigated the Saco seal deaths.

Congressional Committee Investigation Exposes History Of Testing On American Soldiers The Event Chronicle

By Brandon Turbeville

In 1995, a PH.D candidate in Maritime Studies (specifically Chemical Pollution), by the name of H. Lindsey Arison III, wrote a report entitled The Cover-Up of Gulf War Syndrome A Question of National Integrity, where he discussed the toxic chemicals that American service personnel were exposed to during the first American invasion of Iraq and how that exposure may have been the cause or one important contributing factor to the mysterious Gulf War Syndrome that plagued so many soldiers and their families upon returning home.

Dr. Arison concluded:

The Department of Defense, the Central Intelligence Agency, and the Department of Veterans Affairs have been lying to the U.S. Congress, Gulf War veterans, and the American people about coalition forces exposure to chemical and biological agents during the war.

This criminal, reprehensible, shameful, dishonorable, and egregious act on their part has caused incalculable pain and suffering, caused many who risked their lives for our flag to die, inflicted severe financial hardships, caused many veterans children to be born deformed and disabled, caused many veterans children to become diseased, destroyed marriages and families, and eroded the trust of the American people in the institutions they once revered.

Gulf War veterans are truly the victims of patriotism. What they have suffered is the great American tragedy.

Those who have perpetrated and perpetuated this lie must be held fully accountable.

It should be noted that Dr. Anison was an aide to the Undersecretary of the United States Air Force at the Pentagon.

Prior to Dr. Anisons report, the US Congress was forced to hold an investigative committee regarding the testing of chemicals, radiation, and other substances on military service personnel without their knowledge or consent. Of course, the committee only discussed experimentation which was already declassified and, for the most part, publicly available. It did not discuss secret and classified experimentation or ongoing experimentation either.

Nevertheless, the report did collect a number of important bullet points of experimentation on American military personnel including mustard gas, lewisite agents, hallucinogens, radiation, investigational drugs, and others.

Scarlet macaw DNA points to ancient breeding operation in Southwest

August 13, 2018

Somewhere in the American Southwest or northern Mexico, there are probably the ruins of a scarlet macaw breeding operation dating to between 900 and 1200 C.E., according to a team of archaeologists who sequenced the mitochondrial DNA of bird remains found in the Chaco Canyon and Mimbres areas of New Mexico.

Remains of a thriving prehistoric avian culture and breeding colony of scarlet macaws exist at the northern Mexican site of Paquim, or Casas Grande. However, this community existed from 1250 to 1450, well after the abandonment of Chaco Canyon, and could not have supplied these birds to Southwest communities prior to the 13th century, said Richard George, graduate student in anthropology, Penn State.

Historically, scarlet macaws lived from South America to eastern coastal Mexico and Guatemala, thousands of miles from the American Southwest. Previously, researchers thought that ancestral Puebloan people might have traveled to these natural breeding areas and brought birds back, but the logistics of transporting adolescent birds are difficult. None of the sites where these early macaw remains were found contained evidence of breeding eggshells, pens or perches.

We were interested in the prehistoric scarlet macaw population history and the impacts of human direct management, said George. Especially any evidence for directed breeding or changes in the genetic diversity that could co-occur with different trade networks.

The researchers sequenced the mitochondrial DNA of 20 scarlet macaw specimens, but were only able to obtain full sequ...

World moral authority? Exposing the US role in Saudi Arabia's war on Yemen Signs of the Times

As atrocities and scandal begin to mount regarding the US-backed Saudi-led war on the impoverished nation of Yemen, the involvement and hypocrisy of the United States and other Western backers is coming to full light. Global condemnation of Saudi airstrikes on civilian targets has brought public attention to Washington's role in the conflict - a role the Western media has attempted to downplay for years. It is ironic, or perhaps telling, that alternative media outlets targeted as "Russian influence" are leading coverage of Yemen's growing humanitarian catastrophe. US Denies Role in Proxy War That Couldn't be Fought Without It In a recent press conference, US Secretary of Defense James Mattis - when asked about the US role in the Yemeni conflict in regards to Saudi atrocities - would claim: We are not engaged in the civil war. We will help to prevent, you know, the killing of innocent people. Yet nothing could be further from the truth. Mattis himself would lobby US Congress earlier this year to continue US support for Saudi-led operations in Yemen.

We Dont Want To Lose Anymore: Inside the Complex Peace Process That Helped Syrians Find an End to the Fighting MintPress News

This is part 2 of a two part series on the reconciliation process in Syria. You can read part 1 here

BEIRUT, LEBANON Since the Syrian governments reconquest of its southernmost regions, only two zones remain outside its control. Turkey still occupies parts of Idlib, Latakia and Aleppo in the northwest of the country, relying on proxy militias including the Al Qaeda affiliate Jabhat al-Nusra, which has changed its name several times. Meanwhile, the US and its allied Kurdish militias occupy the northeast. Khaled al Ahmad, Assads secret emissary introduced in part 1 of this series, seems to have played a key role in influencing the final outcome in the latter region.

According to American officials, a series of meetings al Ahmad convened with Kurdish leadership in Moscow last year convinced the Kurds to adopt a more conciliatory posture towards Damascus. American officials who had been working with the Kurds had also pushed them towards pragmatism, urging them to reach their own agreement with the Syrian government to avoid the fate of the rebels of southern Syria, who were abandoned by their foreign sponsors ahead of their defeat in June 2018.

When Trump announced in March 2018 that he wanted to withdraw from Syria very soon, it became clear to Kurdish negotiators that they needed to plan for the day after. The Americans told them to see the statement the US issued to the southern rebels, which bluntly informed them that youre on your own, as a message to the Kurds as well.

But American officials say it was al Ahmads meetings with Kurdish leaders that convinced them they could reach a compromise with Damascus along the lines of Law 107. Written before the uprising but approved by Assad after it began, Law 107 increased decentralization and local governance across Syria. Due to the uprising and the Baath partys suspicion that it would loosen its grip on power, the law was never implemented. Still, al Ahmad pushed for years for Law 107 to be seen by the opposition and Kurds as an alternative to their extreme demands. Americans familiar with the meetings say al Ahmad warned the Kurds that if they didnt accept the return of Syrian state control, they would be making themselves vulnerable to a punishing Turkish invasion as well as a future clash with the Syrian army.

Meeting with al Ahmad encouraged the suspicious and inexperienced Kurdish negotiators to accept gestures from Damascus. Al Ahmad basic...

RV/INTELLIGENCE ALERT - August 14, 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.)


New information about the Q400 aircraft crash on Ketron Island has emerged.


The plane crash on the island was a cover for an aerial attack.


The F-15 escort was not only there to escort. It was there to attack a Cabal MIC-built underground hideout located on the island.


According to sources, the underground hideout facilitated a submarine dock where a decommissioned Sturgeon-class nuclear submarine was being kept.


The submarine that Q posted back in June (https://qanon.app/#1479) was the "USS Richard B. Russell", a Sturgeon-class submarine that was decommissioned in Washington State.


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Richard_B._Russell_(SSN-687)


The image of that submarine was posted right after the photo of the Whidbey Island missile launch (https://qanon.app/#1476).


The name of the mechanic who allegedly hijacked the Q400 aircraft was Richard B. Russell.


There are no such thing as coincidences.

Jon Rappoport -- The American Destiny Operation Disclosure

The American destiny

The creative force at the dawn of a new future


By Jon Rappoport

Whenever a breakthrough occurs for the individual, there is a stepping back, a retrenching, a delay, an attempt to reset the clock and push the breakthrough away. This delay tactic can last a week, a month, or, historically, a hundred years.

We are in the middle of such a delay, after serial revelations that erupted in the latter part of the 19th century.

Individual artists (and a few philosophers) became aware that: imagination gives birth to ideas that in turn shape personal reality.

Therefore, reality is very elastic and changeable.

America---and indeed, the world---stood on the brink of a great internal revolution.

The creative IS the spiritual.

America's love affair with the idea of individuals reinventing themselves was about more than immigrants "becoming American." It was about imagination as the core of transforming self and future.

Such a radical realization was too much for many people to absorb, so a backing away occurred. The wave was stilled for a hundred years or so---but now it is beginning to move again.

The attempt to take over America, by Globalist forces, on a behalf of a controlled world order, is really an attempt to quell the individual creative force. That is the secret inside the master plan. And that Globalist effort is in trouble. More and more people are realizing it is a massive fraud based on instituting an imprisoned Collectivist Hive Mind.

Whereas the promise of America was always the intensely creative individual. And what does he do? He takes frozen realities and injects life into them so they move and shed their encrusted energies.

He rejects all formulas that instruct people about how they must live their lives and guard their words and fit in.

Historic space weather could clarify whats next The Event Chronicle

Scientists have discovered an underlying repeatable pattern in how space weather activity changes with the solar cycle having analysed solar activity for the last half century.

Historic space weather may help us understand whats coming next, according to new research by the University of Warwick.

Professor Sandra Chapman, from Warwicks Centre for Fusion, Space and Astrophysics, led a project which charted the space weather in previous solar cycles across the last half century, and discovered an underlying repeatable pattern in how space weather activity changes with the solar cycle.

The sun goes through solar cycles around every eleven years, during which time the number of sunspots increases to the maximum point (the solar maximum). More solar activity means more solar flares, which in turn can mean more extreme space weather at earth.

This breakthrough will allow better understanding and planning for space weather, and for any future threats it may pose to the Earth.

Space weather can disrupt electronics, aviation and satellite systems and communications this depends on solar activity, but as this is different for each solar cycle, the overall likelihood of space weather events can be difficult to forecast.

This exciting research shows that space weather and the activity of the sun are not entirely random and may constrain how likely large weather events are in future cycles.

Sandra Chapman, Professor from the University of Warwicks Department of Physics and the lead author, commented:

We analysed the last five solar maxima and found that although the overall likelihood of more extreme events varied from one solar maximum to another, there is an underlying pattern to their likelihood, which does not change.

If this pattern persists into the next solar maximum, our research, which constrains how likely large events are, will allow better preparation for potential space weather threats to Earth.

The drivers of space weather, the sun and solar wind, and the response seen at Earth, have now been almost continually monitored by ground and space based observations over the last five solar cycles (more than fifty years).

Each solar cycle has a different duration and peak activity level, and, as a consequence the climate of Earths space weather has also been different at each solar maximum.

The more extreme events are less frequent so that it is harder to build up a statistical picture of how likely they are to occur.

Judge releases New Mexico suspects accused of child abuse, planning mass shootings, after defense argues they're victims of discrimination Signs of the Times

In a shocking turn of events, the five accused child abuse suspects - arrested last week for allegedly training children to carry out school shootings - were released by a New Mexico judge despite frightening evidence against them. In what can be referred to as the biggest 'WTF' moment of the week, following a hearing on Monday, Taos District Court Judge Sarah Backus released all five defendants charged with abusing 11 children at a compound near Amalia, New Mexico. To those who may not be familiar, the five accused suspects - Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, 40, Lucas Morton, 40, Jany Leveille, 35, Hujrah Wahhaj, 37, and Subhannah Wahhaj, 35 - were found on a decrepit compound last week with 11 malnourished children dressed in rags. All of the children were emaciated and there was very little food found on the property. The FBI also discovered the remains of another child who was also found on the compound. On top of the severe child abuse discovered at the site, the FBI found evidence that the group was training to carry out acts of terror-specifically school shootings-inside the US. According to one of the children who is cooperating with authorities - which caused the state to file a motion to hold the suspects without bond - was the fact that they were being trained to carry out school shootings.

Nasty! US invaded by savage tick that sucks animals dry, can spread diseases and spawns without mating Signs of the Times

Eight states reporting the little suckers. No evidence they're carrying disease - yet. A vicious species of tick originating from Eastern Asia has invaded the US and is rapidly sweeping the Eastern Seaboard, state and federal officials warn. The tick, the Asian longhorned tick (or Haemaphysalis longicornis), has the potential to transmit an assortment of nasty diseases to humans, including an emerging virus that kills up to 30 percent of victims. So far, the tick hasn't been found carrying any diseases in the US. It currently poses the largest threat to livestock, pets, and wild animals; the ticks can attack en masse and drain young animals of blood so quickly that they die - an execution method called exsanguination. Key to the tick's explosive spread and bloody blitzes is that its invasive populations tend to reproduce asexually - that is, without mating. Females drop up to 2,000 eggs over the course of two or three weeks, quickly giving rise to a ravenous army of clones. In one US population studied so far, experts encountered a massive swarm of the ticks in a single paddock, totaling well into the thousands. They speculated that the population might have a ratio of about one male to 400 females.

Last week, days ahead of the first anniversary of activist Heather Heyers slaying in Charlottesville, Va., and a second Unite the Right rally, Instagram banned a political cartoon by artist Jesse Duquette on the grounds that it encouraged or depicted extreme violence. Duquette, who provides regular commentary on the Trump administration via his feed, the.daily.don, responded as follows:

Not sure how a cartoon commenting on Trumps relationship with the rise in white nationalism fits into either category but it seems IGs desire to cave into some touchy Trumpflakes and deliver them their badly-needed safe space is more important than having to make sense. One more strike (likely) and the acct could get the axe, so if this page suddenly disappears (very likely), at least it will have allowed some proud boy alpha males to sleep a little more soundly knowing they wont have to be confronted by these dastardly cartoons anymore. #onedayatatime #resist #magaisformorons#cartoon #trumpflakes #shitholepresident#thedailydon

While its possibleeven probablethat the drawing was flagged for its inclusion of a swastika, the Facebook-owned sites refusal to acknowledge the context in which it was drawn nonetheless raises pertinent questions regarding free speech. Call it corporate censorship by algorithm.

As the newspaper industry has declined, so too has the political cartoon, despite offering a vital check on the power of state and federal officials.

Strange Interdimensional Portals in the Sky Secret Projects and CERN The Event Chronicle

By Brent Swancer

A common theme in science fiction is that of the portal through space, time, alternate dimensions, or all three. These strange doorways open up into realms unknown, providing a passage to the outer fringes of our reality and our understanding. Yet, by some accounts these openings through space and time are not merely the domain of science fiction, but actually do exist. One place where such outlandish portals seem to materialize quite often is up in the sky above our heads, and here in the heavens above we can find all manner of reports and even photographic evidence of what appears to be something straight out of a science fiction story.

Among the types of portals said to have opened up in the sky are those that seem to be undeniably linked to the UFO phenomenon, with these mysterious craft apparently utilizing these doorways for their own inscrutable purposes. One very interesting report of what is claimed to some sort of alien portal in the sky occurred in May of 2015, when an amateur nature photographer snapped a pic of something very strange in the skies over the province of Groningen in the Netherlands during a storm. As he was taking pictures of the ominous dark clouds gathering above he claims that he saw a bright flash in the sky, which he managed to capture on film, yet when the photo was developed it was found to show what appeared to be some sort of doorway up in the sky emitting vapor or disgorging something else. Is this just a camera trick? A hoax? What is it?

The following year, on October 1, 2016, a very unusual aerial phenomenon was observed over Bridge City, Texas. According to UFO investigators SecureTeam 10, on this evening at around 11PM a point of white light appeared in the sky, which then steadily formed a streak across the sky, growing larger and brighter, as well as taking on an orange hue. Witnesses reported that it eventually took the form of a bright orange slit in the sky, which seemed to pulse in cycles, and looked like some sort of portal. One witness was able to catch footage of the strange sight on a cell phone, which you can see here.

The weird brightening and dimming portal reportedly stayed stationary for around 10 minutes before fading away to leave witnesses baffled. According to the reports, during this time numerous cars at nearby Port Arthur purportedly inexplicably died on the road, their engines stalling for no apparent reason, and SecureTeam 10s Tyler Glockner claims that hundreds of motorists were effected by this anomaly, their cars stopping dead in their tracks while still in motion and in some cases careening into each other or right off the road. Many of the witnesses also reported hearing a high-pitched whine spew forth from their radios before the cars and all electrical equipment ceased to function, and it has been speculated this...

Trump says militarism first, workers a poor second Dear Kitty. Some blog

This 13 August 2018 video from the USA says about itself:

Trump: Military Might More Important Than Jobs

What if military might *wasnt* more important than jobs? Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss.

The U.S. Senate on Monday voted to give the military $716 billion for 2019, approving one of the biggest defense budgets in modern American history despite concerns from some economists and lawmakers about the rapidly rising federal deficit.

The 2019 military budget, approved by an 85-to-10 vote, gives Americas armed forces an $82 billion increase from 2017. The military has called the additional funding necessary to improve its ability to respond to international crises, while critics say Congress should not be giving a significant boost to spending at the Defense Department at a moment of relatively diminished U.S. military involvement around the globe. About 17 percent of Americas $4 trillion federal budget goes to the military, according to the Congressional Budget Office.

Grassland birds this year, report Dear Kitty. Some blog

This Dutch video is about 25 grassland bird species and their sounds.

Today, warden Jenny van Leeuwen reports about this years nesting season for grassland birds in nature reserves De Wilck and Westeinde.

Nesting couples in De Wilck numbers: 72 black-tailed godwit; 30 redshank; 32 oystercatcher. All about the same as last year. For northern lapwings, there was a decline from over 80 to 75 couples, because of unusual frost in the spring.

There was an increase for skylarks, with this year 7 couples. There were three yellow wagtail couples; zero in 2017.

This year for the first time there was a solar pump regulating water levels. It helped to attract three black-winged stilts, for the first time. Also, young little ringed plovers fledged.

In Westeinde, there was an increase to now 13 black-tailed godwit, five redshank and 10 oystercatcher couples. Unfortunately, northern lapwings declined to 17 couples.

What Really Happens to Nicaragua, Venezuela and Ecuador MintPress News

Stories about corruption and internally government-generated violence concerning most unaligned countries abound in the MSM. These lies fuel hatred. And the public at large start a malicious rumor circuit. Which, in turn is taken over by the MSM, so that their lies are pushing in open doors. The war drums start beating. The populace wants foreign imposed order, they want blood and regime change. The consensus for war has once more worked. And the blood may flow. Instigated by outside forces, such as the NED (National Endowment for Democracy) and USAID, which train and fund nationals clandestinely in-and outside the country where eventually they have to operate. They are commandeered by Washington and other western powers and act so as to blame the non-obedient governments, whose regime must be changed. They constitute part of the Fifth Column.

Fifth Column is a group of people, who undermine the government of a country in support of the enemy. They can be both covert and open. The term Fifth Column originates from the Spanish Civil War, when in October 1936 nationalist rebel General Mola initiated the coup dtat against the legitimate Republican Government. This marked the beginning of the Spanish Civil War. General Mola besieged Madrid with four columns of troops and claimed he had a Fifth Column, hiding inside the city. The term was henceforth used for infiltrated enemies within a legitimate government. Mola, the mastermind behind the coup died in a 1937 plane crash, and General Francisco Franco became Spains dictator for the next almost 40 years. He prevailed over the Republican resistance thanks to Hitlers and Mussolinis air support.

Now whats the true story behind the violence-plagued Nicaragua and Venezuela, and the treacherous new Moreno government in Ecuador?

Take Nicaragua  it all started with the Board of Directors of the Nicaragua Social Security Institute (INSS) on 16 April 2018 approving an IMF-imposed social security reform, modified and then supported by President Ortega. The reform maintained social security at its current level, but would increasing employer contributions by 3.5% to pension and health funds, while only slightly increasing worker contributions by 0.75% and shifting 5% of pensioners cash transfer into their healthcare fund. These reforms triggered the coup attempt initiated by the business lobby and backed by the Nicaraguan oligarchy.

Student protests were already ongoing in different university cities in connection with university elections. These protests were re-directed against the Ortega government with the help of US-funded NGOs and the Catholic Church, an ally of the wealthy in most of Latin America. Some of the students involved in re-directing the protests were brought to the US for training by the Freedom House, a long-time associate of the CIA. USAID announced an additional US$ 1.5 million to build oppo...

In Private Meeting, Facebook Exec Warns News Outlets to Cooperate or Die MintPress News

During a closed-door and off-the-record meeting last week, top Facebook executive Campbell Brown reportedly warned news publishers that refusal to cooperate with the tech behemoths efforts to revitalize journalism will leave media outlets dying like in a hospice.

Reported first by The Australian under a headline which read Work With Facebook or Die: Zuckerberg, the social media giant has insisted the comments were taken out of context, even as five individuals who attended the four-hour meeting corroborated what Brown had stated.

Mark doesnt care about publishers but is giving me a lot of leeway and concessions to make these changes, Brown reportedly said, referring to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. We will help you revitalize journalism in a few years the reverse looks like Ill be holding hands with your dying business like in a hospice.

Browns warning about the dire prospects for news outlets that dont get on board with a future in which corporate giants like Facebook are the arbiters of what is and isnt trustworthy news comes as progressives are raising alarm that Facebooks entrance into the world of journalism poses a major threat to non-corporate and left-wing news outlets.

"Dozens" dead as massive section of motorway bridge collapses during "violent cloudburst" in Genoa, Italy Signs of the Times

A motorway bridge has collapsed near the Italian city of Genoa, sending vehicles plummeting some 100m (328ft) to the ground and killing at least 11 people, local media report. Italian Transport Minister Danilo Toninelli said it was likely to be "an immense tragedy". Local emergency officials have been quoted as saying "dozens" died. Video footage appears to show one of the towers holding up the suspension bridge collapsing in stormy weather. The police linked the disaster to what they called a violent cloudburst. The collapsed section had mostly fallen on to rail tracks below, officials told AFP news agency, adding that cars and trucks had also fallen.

Exotic states of matter made in space The Event Chronicle

By Amira Val Baker

The infamous exotic state of matter Bose Einstein Condensates that allows scientists to observe the quantum world has now just been created in space!

In the normal world atoms are separate systems with clearly defined boundaries, however at temperatures nearing absolute zero all those boundary conditions come down and the individual atomic systems coalesce into one. This exotic state of matter is known as a Bose Einstein Condensate (BEC) and was named after physicists Satyendra Nath Bose and Albert Einstein whose work on groups of photons and bosonic atoms led to its prediction in 1924.

BECs are extremely interesting, as now you have an agglomeration of atoms coalesced into one entity such that it can be described by a wave function that is normally reserved for the quantum world.

The first realization of this exotic matter came in 1995 by Eric Cornell and Carl Wiemann when a gas of rubidium was cooled to nearly absolute zero. These condensates can now be formed from millions of atoms. However, the size and time-scale of the condensate depends on the abilities of the lasers and magnets to trap and cool the atoms and maintain confinement.

Now in the microgravity of the International Space Station (ISS) a NASA team of scientist have managed to cool a cloud of rubidium atoms and produce for the first time this exotic state of matter in space. The difference here is the device known as the Cold Atom Lab (CAL) is only the size of a small refrigerator compared to the typical room size. As well and most significantly is the fact that in space, in microgravity conditions, the BEC does not need to be trapped and once created can be let go and the scientist are free to observe for longer typically 5 10 seconds.

This has huge implications for studying BECs and advancing our understanding of superfluidity and other so-called strange quantum effects.


NASA Created a Rare, Exotic State of Matter in Space

By Rafi Letzter

NASA has cooled a cloud of rubidium atoms to ten-millionth of a degree above absolute zero, producing the fifth, exotic state of matter in space. The experiment also now holds the record for the coldest object we know of in space, though it isnt yet the coldest thing humanity has ever created. (That record still belongs to a laboratory at MIT.)

The Cold Atom Lab (CAL) is a compact quantum physics machine, a device built to work in the confines of the International Space Station (ISS) that launched into space in May. Now, according to a statement from NASA, the device has produced its first Bose-Einstein cond...

Watch | Russian Military Campaign in Syria 2015-2018 MintPress News

This is a detailed summary of military and political developments in Syria since the start of the Russian military operation until now. (2015-2018)

INTRODUCTION

The Russian military operation in Syria is nearing the end of its third year. Since 2015, Moscow has been employing its air power, military advisors and diplomatic resources to defeat a multitude of terrorist groups, to support the legitimate Syrian government, and to promote a peaceful dialogue across the country, thereby creating the framework for a diplomatic settlement of the conflict on the international and regional levels.

Russias capabilities of providing military supplies to Syrian government forces and humanitarian aid to the local population, have both played an important role in establishing Russian forces as an influential and reputable power within Syria, which can play the role of a mediator among various factions on the ground in the war-torn country. In comparison, all other foreign powers involved in the conflict are forced to rely on a limited number of proxy forces, which have often proven to exhibit a harsh attitude toward, and competition with their counterparts and competitors.

On the other hand, this situation puts restrictions on Moscows actions in some spheres, because it must balance its public and formal positions to push forward the promoted political settlement while pursuing Russias own national security and political goals simultaneously.

 

STARTING POINT

To put Russian actions in Syria and the Middle East in general in perspective, one should think back to what the situation was like on the eve of the direct Russian intervention in the conflict. At that moment, the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda Jabhat al-Nusra (now known as Hayat Tahrir al-Sham) and other radical militant groups, often branded in the mainstream media as the moderate opposition, as well as ISIS, were engaged in an increasingly successful offensive against the Syrian government on multiple frontlines. Jabhat al-Nusra and its allies were at the gates of Damascus, in control of large parts of northern, western and southern Syria, as well as multiple areas within the government-held areas, including about a half of the city of Aleppo, often described as the second Syrian capital. At the same time, ISIS self-proclaimed Caliphate was rapidly spreading throughout the eastern and northern parts of the country. The terrorist group was in control of a major part of the Syrian oil resources, the strategically important cities of Deir Ezzor and Raqqah, and controlled a sizeable border with Turkey.

The US, Israel, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and other countries of the so-called civilized world were either providing direct a...

Censorship Is What Happens When Powerful People Get Scared The Daily Sheeple

Only the weak hit the fly with a hammer.

Bangambiki Habyarimana

Anyone who tells you the recent escalation of censorship by U.S. tech giants is merely a reflection of private companies making independent decisions is either lying or dangerously ignorant.

In the case of Facebook, the road from pseudo-platform to willing and enthusiastic tool of establishment power players is fairly straightforward. It really got going earlier this year when issues surrounding egregious privacy violations in the case of Cambridge Analytica (stuff that had been going on for years) could finally be linked to the Trump campaign. It was at this point that powerful and nefarious forces spotted an opportunity to leverage the companys gigantic influence in distributing news and opinion for their own ends. Rather than hold executives to account and break up the company, the choice was made to commandeer and weaponize the platform. This is where we stand today.

Lets not whitewash history though. These tech companies have been compliant, out of control government snitches for a long time. Thanks to Edward Snowden, were aware of the deep and longstanding cooperation between these lackeys and U.S. intelligence agencies in the realm of mass surveillance. As such, the most recent transformation of these companies into full fledged information gatekeepers should be seen in its proper context; merely as a dangerous continuation and expansion of an already entrenched reality.

The Strange Life of Water on Alien Ultrahot Jupiters The Event Chronicle

By The Daily Galaxy

The daysides of these worlds are furnaces that look more like a stellar atmosphere than a planetary atmosphere, said Vivien Parmentier, an astrophysicist at Aix Marseille University in France and lead author of the new study. In this way, ultrahot Jupiters stretch out what we think planets should look like.

Imagine a place where the weather forecast is always the same: scorching temperatures, relentlessly sunny, and with absolutely zero chance of rain. This hellish scenario exists on the permanent daysides of a type of planet found outside our solar system dubbed an ultrahot Jupiter. These worlds orbit extremely close to their stars, with one side of the planet permanently facing the star.

What has puzzled scientists is why water vapor appears to be missing from the toasty worlds atmospheres, when it is abundant in similar but slightly cooler planets. Observations of ultrahot Jupiters by NASAs Spitzer and Hubble space telescopes, combined with computer simulations, have served as a springboard for a new theoretical study that may have solved this mystery.

According to the new study, ultrahot Jupiters do in fact possess the ingredients for water (hydrogen and oxygen atoms). But due to strong irradiation on the planets daysides, temperatures there get so intense that water molecules are completely torn apart.

The simulated views of the ultrahot Jupiter WASP-121b below show what the planet might look like to the human eye from five different vantage points, illuminated to different degrees by its parent star. The images were created using a computer simulation being used to help scientists understand the atmospheres of these ultra-hot planets. NASA/JPL-Caltech/Vivien Parmentier/Aix-Marseille University (AMU)

While telescopes like Spitzer and Hubble can gather some information about the daysides of ultrahot Jupiters, the nightsides are difficult for current instruments to probe. The new paper proposes a model for what might be happening on both the illuminated and dark sides of these planets, based largely on observations and analysis of the ultrahot Jupiter known as WASP-121b, and from three recently published studies, coauthored by Parmentier, that focus on the ultrahot Jupiters WASP-103b, WASP-18b and HAT-P-7b, respectively.

The new study suggests that fierce winds may blow the sundered water molecules into the planets nightside hemispheres. On the cooler, dark side of the planet, the atoms can recombine into molecules and condense into clouds, all before drifting back into the dayside to be splintered again.

Water is not the only molecule that may undergo a cycle of chemical reincarnation on these planets, according to the new study. Previous detections of clouds by Hubble at the boundary between day and night, where temperatures mercifully fall, have shown that titanium oxide (popular as a sun...

8 Signs Of A True Soul Friend TruthTheory

by  via LonerWolf

A true friend is one soul in two bodies.  Aristotle

What do you define as a friend?

Take a moment to think about your answer.

Once upon a time people described true friendship as a connection between two fiercely loyal people who would give their lives for each others well-being. A true friend used to be thought of as a person who would stick with us through thick and thin; an alter-ego of sorts who we could confide in about anything and everything, and trust completely.

These days the meaning of friendship has been somewhat diminished as we assign our drinking buddies, neighbors, colleagues and acquaintances with the friendship status (dont get me wrong, some of these people can be true friends, but usually not). We even reward the strangers and distant associates on our social networking account friend lists with the devalued title, as though the word friend is nothing more than a worthless, futile word that can be tossed around and pinned onto anyone with a face.

While it is great that we are open enough to assign anyone in our lives as friends, our ignorance of what a true friend is and what being a true friend means contributes to a great sense of isolation and loneliness in our lives. We have even turned friend into doublespeak with the m...

The Uyghur Militant Threat: China Cracks Down and Mulls Policy Changes MintPress News

China, responding to United Nations criticism, academic and media reports, and an embarrassing court case in Kazakhstan, has come closer to admitting that it has brutally cracked down on the strategic north-western province of Xinjiang in what it asserts is a bid to prevent the kind of mayhem that has wracked countries like Syria and Libya.

The Chinese Communist Partys Global Times charged in its Chinese and English editions that the criticism and reports were aimed at stirring trouble and destroying hard-earned stability in Xinjiang, Chinas gateway to Central Asia and home to its Turkic Uyghur and ethnic minority Central Asian Muslim communities.

The crackdown, involving introduction of the worlds most intrusive surveillance state and the indefinite internment of large numbers of Muslims in re-education camps, is designed to quell potential Uyghur nationalist and religious sentiment and prevent blowback from militants moving to Central Asias borders with China after the Islamic State and other jihadist groups lost most of their territorial base in Iraq and Syria.

Concern that national and religious sentiment and/or militancy could challenge Chinas grip on Xinjiang, home to 15  percent of its proven oil reserves, 22  per cent of its gas reserves, and 115 of the 147 raw materials found in the Peoples Republic as well as part of its nuclear arsenal, has prompted Beijing to consider a more interventionist policy in the Middle East and Central and South Asia in contradiction to its principle of non-interference in the affairs of others.

The Global Times asserted that the security situation in Xinjiang had been turned around and terror threats spreading from there to other provinces of China are also being eliminated. Peaceful and stable life has been witnessed again in all of Xinjiang Xinjiang has been salvaged from the verge of massive turmoil. It has avoided the fate of becoming Chinas Syria or Chinas Libya, the paper said.

Five Chinese mining engineers were wounded last week in a suicide attack in the troubled Pakistan province of Balochistan, a key node in the US$ 50 billion plus China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) intended to link the strategic port of Gwadar with Xinjiang and fuel economic development in the Chinese region. The attack was claimed by the Balochistan Liberation Army (BLA) rather than Uyghurs.

The Global Times admitted that the Chinese effort to ensure secur...

Is it a Massive Planet or a Tiny Brown Dwarf. This Object is Right at the Border Between Planet and Star The Event Chronicle

By Matt Williams

Rogue planets are a not-too-uncommon occurrence in our Universe. In fact, within our galaxy alone, it is estimated that there are billions of rogue planets, perhaps even more than there are stars. These objects are basically planet-mass objects that have been ejected from their respective star systems (where they formed), and now orbit the center of the Milky Way. But it is especially surprising to find one orbiting so close to our own Solar System!

In 2016, scientists detected what appeared to be either a brown dwarf or a star orbiting just 20 light years beyond our Solar System. However, using the National Science Foundations Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array (VLA), a team of astronomers recently concluded that it is right at the boundary between a massive planet and a brown dwarf. This, and other mysterious things about this object, represent a mystery and an opportunity to astronomers!

The study which describes their findings recently appeared the Astrophysical Journal under the title The Strongest Magnetic Fields on the Coolest Brown Dwarfs. The team was led by Melodie Kao who led this study while a graduate student at Caltech, and is now a Hubble Postdoctoral Fellow at Arizona State University and included members from Arizona State University, the University of Colorado Boulder, the California Institute of Technology, and the University of California San Diego.

To summarize, brown dwarfs are objects that are too massive to be considered planets, but not massive enough to become stars. Originally, such objects were not thought to emit radio waves, but in 2001, a team using the VLA discovered a brown dwarf that exhibited both strong radio emissions and magnetic activity. Ongoing observations also revealed that some brown dwarfs have strong auroras, similar to the gas giants in our Solar System.

This particular object, known as SIMP J01365663+0933473, was first discovered in 2016 by the Caltech team as one of five brown dwarfs. This survey was part of VLA study to gain new knowledge about magnetic fields and the mechanisms by which the coolest astronomical objects can produce strong radio emissions. Since brown dwarfs are incredibly difficult to measure, the object was initially though to be too old and too massive to be a brown dwarf.

However, last year, an independent team of scientists discovered that SIMP J01365663+0933473 was part of a very young group of stars whose age, size and mass indicated that it was likely to be a free-floating (aka. rogue) planet rather than a star. In short, the object was determined to be 200 million years old, 1.22 times the radius of Jupiter and 12.7 times its mass...

8 Things You Need to Know (But Probably Dont) Waking Times

Gary Z McGee, Staff Writer
Waking Times

The system cannot be fixed by the system. ~Tom Morello

It is of the first order of importance to remember this: the system cannot be fixed by the system. It can only be fixed by the resistance of healthy, reasonable, imaginative, knowledgeable, compassionate and non-violent individuals. It can only be fixed by people who have re-conditioned their cultural conditioning, un-matrixed the Matrix, ninjaneered their statist indoctrination, and unwashed their political brainwash.

All of this despite uncomfortable cognitive dissonance, myopic tribal affiliation, and blind nationalism.

In short: the system can only be fixed by people who have dared to take a leap of courage outside the box of the system itself, and then double-dogged dared themselves to gain knowledge that undermines the unhealthy system while proactively building a healthier system.

1.) The expansion of imperial war undermines freedom:

At the end of the cold war we could have diverted tax dollars to the quality of our lives, things like health care, education, infrastructure, eliminating poverty, and protecting against climate change. Alas, the peace dividend never happened. Why not? Because the military, and persons profiting from the military, like weapons manufacturers and their lobbyists in Congress didnt want to. Thats why. Only 8 percent of Americans polled in 2014 wanted the United States to lead the world military. But that 8 percent won out. Thats plutocracy. ~Ted Stanford, WWII Navy Veteran

If slavery is the opposite of freedom, then war is probably its inverse. Its simple: human beings cannot be free when other human beings are threatening them with guns and bombs.

To the extent that guns and bombs are necessary is only in a defense-minded sense. Otherwise, the use of guns and bombs is just cold, calculated, murderous and offensive, war. It is only necessary if the Non-aggression principle has been violated and the loss of human life is at stake. Th...

Holy basil works to reduce stress and defeat cancer The Event Chronicle

By Lori Alton

For millennia, holy basil or tulsi has been revered in the Ayurvedic medical system for its healing capabilities. Scientifically known as Ocimum sanctum, holy basil is currently earning respect from modern researchers for its abilities to alleviate the effects of chronic stress while inhibiting the growth of cancer.

Today, well focus our attention on the many health benefits of this therapeutic plant.

Holy basil is the ultimate adaptogen for every day use

To be classified as an adaptogen, a substance must strengthen the immune system, help the body function optimally during times of stress and even help prevent diseases such as cancer. Holy basil, with its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and immune-enhancing effects, does this in spades.

But, be aware: holy basil is not to be confused with sweet basil, or Ocimum basilicum, the flavorful and beneficial Mediterranean kitchen herb sold in grocery stores. Holy basil sometimes called Asian basil is a plant of Indian origin, and features some different constituents and properties.

Holy basil works on cellular and molecular levels to fight disease

In cellular studies, holy basil has shown the ability to repair cells damaged by oxidation and even to repair cell DNA damaged by radiation, giving it chemopreventive effects. One of its compounds, BCP, or (E)-beta-caryophyllene, acts as a strong anti-inflammatory agent.

In fact, researchers say that holy basil, much like pharmaceutical anti-inflammatory drugs, works to suppress levels of the pro-inflammatory chemical COX-2, helping to relieve pain and inflammation but without unwanted side effects.

In addition, holy basil can help alleviate stress-induced anxiety, depression and insomnia. University of Maryland Medical Center talks about this calming herb as a therapy for post-traumatic stress disorder, and many integrative physicians recommend it for adrenal support.

Research confirm the stress-relieving effects of holy basil

As scientists have long known, the effects of ongoing stress can be devastating. Chronic stress damages the nervous system, suppresses the immune system, and can even cause increased appetite and weight gain. When it comes to relieving effects of stress, holy basil just might be the gold standard of soothing herbs.

Holy basil has been shown to decreases levels of stress hormones corticosterone and cortisol in particular. Having lower levels of corticosterone can improve mental function, while reducing risk of age-related mental disorder...

Pediatricians Warn Against Using Plastic Numbers 3, 6, 7 The Event Chronicle

By Lorraine Chow

The next time you use a plastic container or bottle, you might want to look at the little number inside the triangle recycling symbol.

In a report issued last month, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) said that plastics with the recycling codes 3 (phthalates), 6 (styrene) and 7 (bisphenols) should be avoided unless they are labeled as biobased or greenware, which do not contain these chemicals.

The AAP also warned that plastic should not be heated in microwaves or placed in dishwashers, as the heat can cause chemicals to leach into food.

The AAPs report, published in the August issue of Pediatrics, adds to a growing body of evidence that plastic not only negatively impacts the environment, it can also negatively impact human health.

Rapidly accumulating scientific evidence suggests that certain chemicals added during the processing of foods and those that may come into contact with food as part of packaging or processing may contribute to disease and disability, the authors wrote.

More than 10,000 chemicals are allowed to be added to food in the U.S., but the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is unable to ensure all of those chemicals are safe, they added.

A Canadian mosque has been stripped of its charitable status after a revenue audit found a litany of issues, including inviting speakers who previously spoke out against LGBT and female equality, as well as advocating martyrdom. The Ottawa Islamic Centre and Assalam Mosque, which is one of the biggest mosques in the Canadian capital, had its charitable status revoked in July, after officials from the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) expressed concerns in a report over dodgy financing and a roster of guest speakers who seemed to "promote hate and intolerance." "Many of the views expressed by the organization's speakers are misogynistic, homophobic, racist and/or promote violence," the CRA Charities Branch wrote in a letter sent to the mosque president and obtained by the Global Times.

'Non-negotiable': Iran's next generation homegrown ballistic missile Signs of the Times

Amid renewed tensions with the US, Iran has unveiled the next generation of its homegrown 'Fateh' short-range ballistic missile on Monday, claiming that it's capable of evading radars and hitting targets with pinpoint accuracy. The new missile, whose name means 'Conqueror,' boasts a range of between 300 and 500 kilometers. Brigadier General Amir Hatami, Iran's defense minister, described it as agile, able to evade enemy radars, and strike with "pinpoint accuracy," Tasnim news agency reported. "As I had promised the Iranian nation, I will spare no effort to boost the country's missile capabilities and we will certainly increase our missile power every day," Hatami said at a ceremony in Tehran on Monday. US officials told Reuters on Friday that Iran had tested a short-range anti-ship missile during naval drills in the Strait of Hormuz.

Turkey claims Trump targeted the lira, has counter-measures ready Signs of the Times

Turkey has accused Donald Trump of leading an attack on its national currency. The lira lost about 40 percent of its value against the US dollar this year and, to reduce its volatility, Ankara has prepared an urgent action plan. "The currency of our country is targeted directly by the US president," Finance Minister Berat Albayrak told Hurriyet. "This attack, initiated by the biggest player in the global financial system, reveals a similar situation in all developing countries." The Turkish lira took a massive hit against the dollar on Friday following Trump's decision to double tariffs on aluminum and steel imports from Turkey to 20 percent and 50 percent. Overall, the national currency lost roughly about 40 percent of its value this year.

Ray McGovern: Torture fan Senator Burr let Haspel cover up her 'black site' role to secure confirmation Signs of the Times

Newly released declassified documents prove once and for all that CIA Director Gina Haspel oversaw torture in Thailand, which the chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee knew all along, as Ray McGovern explains. Newly released official documents obtained by the National Security Archive showing that CIA Director Gina Haspel directly supervised waterboarding at the first CIA "Black Site" simply confirm what Senate Intelligence Committee Chair Richard Burr (R-NC) already knew as he orchestrated the charade that was Haspel's confirmation hearing. Burr allowed her to "classify" her own direct role in waterboarding and other torture techniques so that it could be kept from the public and secure her confirmation--further proof that this Senate oversight committee has instead become an overlook committee. That Haspel supervised the torture of Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri at the first CIA "black site" for interrogation was already clear to those who had followed Haspel's career, but she was able to do a song and dance when Sen. Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-CA) asked her about it. Haspel declined to reply on grounds that the information was classified. It was of course because Haspel herself had classified it. All the senators knew that only too well. Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR) had strongly objected to this bizarre practice only minutes before.

More signs Mueller is zeroing in on Roger Stone Signs of the Times

Special counsel Robert Mueller appears to be narrowing his focus on Roger Stone in his investigation into Russian interference in the election, prompting widespread speculation that the longtime adviser to President Trump is likely a target in the probe. Stone has long been subject to public scrutiny as a result of his connections to WikiLeaks and Guccifer 2.0, the hacking persona that Mueller's team now alleges was a front for Russian intelligence officers. The focus on Stone has seemed to intensify in recent weeks, as Mueller has sought testimony from a growing number of individuals linked to him. Most telling, perhaps, is the fact that Roger Stone himself has not yet been called to interview with Mueller or testify before the grand jury. Legal analysts see this as a sign that Stone is a subject, if not a target, of the investigation into whether there was collusion between Trump's campaign and Moscow. "Mueller is obviously closing in on Stone," said Glenn Kirschner, a former federal prosecutor with the D.C. U.S. attorney's office.

Israel: Liberal Jewish-American reporter detained for questioning on his political beliefs Signs of the Times

Liberal Jewish-American journalist Peter Beinart says he won't accept Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's apology to him for being detained and questioned about his political beliefs at an Israeli airport. Beinart flew to Tel Aviv's Ben Gurion Airport on Sunday to attend his niece's Bat Mitzvah - only to be intercepted by Israeli passport control and questioned for over an hour about his political beliefs and affiliations. According to Beinart - who is an advocate for Palestinian rights, and is a regular contributor to the left-leaning Jewish-American outlet, The Forward - his Israeli interrogator asked "again and again" for the names of "objectionable" organizations that he was associated with. "[The interrogator's] definition of objectionable, however, kept changing. At one point he asked about groups that incite or provoke violence. At another he asked about groups that threaten Israeli democracy. At another he asked about groups that promote anarchy," Beinart wrote in a piece he penned for The Forward about the ordeal. "Then he simply asked if I was connected to any organization - or involved in any activity - that he should be concerned about. I laughed and told him that if I thought he should be concerned about it I wouldn't be involved. But his imprecision was telling: He established no consistent or objective standard for my detention. His standard was whether I planned to cause trouble - trouble meaning whatever he and his superiors wanted it to mean."

Ron Paul: Trump versus his own administration? Signs of the Times

Are President Trump's senior cabinet members working against him? It's hard not to conclude that many of the more hawkish neocons that Trump has (mistakenly, in my view) appointed to top jobs are actively working to undermine the president's stated agenda. Especially when it seems Trump is trying to seek dialogue with countries the neocons see as adversaries needing to be regime-changed. Remember just as President Trump was organizing an historic summit meeting with Kim Jong-Un, his National Security Advisor, John Bolton, nearly blew the whole thing up by making repeated references to the "Libya model" and how it should be applied to North Korea. As if Kim would jump at the chance to be bombed, overthrown, and murdered at the hands of a US-backed mob! It seems that Trump's appointees are again working at cross-purposes to him. Last week, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced that he was invoking a 1991 US law against the use of chemical weapons to announce yet another round of sanctions on Russia over what he claims is Putin's involvement in the poisoning of a former Russian spy and his daughter in the UK. The alleged poisoning took place in March and only now did the State Department make its determination that Russia was behind it and thus subject to the 1991 sanction law. Was there new information that came to light that pointed to Russian involvement? According to a State Department briefing there was none. The State Department just decided to take the British government's word for it. Where do we get authority to prosecute Russia for an alleged crime committed in the UK, by the way?

Gut Microbes Play a Significant Role in the Central Nervous System Digestive Health Is Linked to Your Risk of Neurodegenerative Diseases The Event Chronicle

By Isabelle Z.

Right now, we are seeing neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinsons and Alzheimers in unprecedented numbers and these figures are only expected to rise in the future. In fact, the number of Alzheimers patients in the United States is expected to grow from 5 million today to 14 million by the year 2050, which is roughly equivalent to the entire populations of Los Angeles, New York City, and Chicago combined.

Its clear that this is one of the biggest health challenges of our time, and scientists have recently gained new insight into the connection between the brain and gut health. Researchers from Brigham and Womens Hospital in Boston used animal models as well as human cells to examine the gut-brain connection and explore the crosstalk between brain cells and immune cells.

In particular, they focused on how gut microbes influence two types of crucial central nervous system cells: astrocytes and microglia. Microglia play an important role in the immune system, getting rid of materials that need to be removed from the central nervous system such as damaged cells and plaques. However, they also create compounds that can be neurotoxic to the astrocyte brain cells. It is this damage that contributes to neurological illnesses like multiple sclerosis.

The researchers found that gut organisms can promote brain inflammation in previous studies, but this is the first study to explain how microbial products can act on microglia to stop inflammation. In short, microbes produce certain byproducts when breaking down the amino acid tryptophan which is found in foods like turkey and these byproducts are believed to limit brain inflammation via their influence on microglia.

They reached their conclusions after examining gut microbes and changes in mouse models of multiple sclerosis. They discovered the compounds produced by the breakdown of tryptophan cross the blood-brain barrier and activate an inflammatory pathway that can limit neurodegeneration. They saw evidence of this same pathway when looking at brain samples from humans with multiple sclerosis.

It is the activation of this pathway that has also recently been linked to glioblastoma and Alzheimers disease. The researchers say, therefore, that these mechanisms could be relevant to a host of neurological diseases beyond multiple sclerosis and lead to the development of new therapies for these types of illnesses.

The results a...

Scientists track the speed of death as it moves through a cell Signs of the Times

For the first time ever, scientists have witnessed death itself moving through a cell and have measured its speed. The revolutionary finding could hold potential for the future treatment of cancer and Alzheimer's disease. Scientists from the Stanford University School of Medicine witnessed the wave-like motion of cell death and published their groundbreaking findings in the journal Science. The team found signals that trigger death to travel through cells in a domino-like effect, at a rate of three micrometers per minute. A micrometer is equal to one-millionth of a meter. These signals trigger apoptosis, a type of cell suicide or programmed cell death (PCD). It is the most understood form of cell death and is used by the human body to get rid of old or damaged cells. "This work is another example of how nature makes use of these trigger waves - things that most biologists have never heard of - over and over again," biochemist James Ferrell said. "It is a recurring theme in cell regulation. I bet we'll start to see it in textbooks soon." Scientists used the egg of an African clawed frog, which is a single, large cell, to conduct the experiment. After removing the cytoplasm and placing it in a tube, they then initiated apoptosis and used a fluorescent green protein that glows when apoptosis occurs.

Concrete that stores renewable energy may be used to build future houses The Event Chronicle

  • Potassium ions embedded in the concrete are used to physically store energy
  • It would allow surplus power from renewable sources to be built up and stored 
  • This would then be used at times of high demand, such as during winter months

By Joe Pinkstone

The walls of your family home could soon double-up as a battery, storing energy in its blocks.

Scientists have developed a new type of concrete that is infused with potassium ions, which allow it to store electricity for long periods of time.

When energy production levels drop, the concrete would kick in and power a house using the reserve stock of energy it has saved up.

Renewable energy sources are becoming more prominent, slowly eradicating nuclear and coal-powered plants.

One of the major obstacles hindering the expansion of the industry is the inability to sufficiently store any excess power that is produced.

Batteries work by transferring charged particles from one side to the other storing energy in a chemical medium that can later be released.

The researchers found that these charged particles, known as ions, can also flow  through a crystalline structure like concrete accumulating on one side.

This physically traps the energy and does not require the use of chemicals, making the potassium-infused concrete technically a capacitor, not a battery.

The idea is to store electricity in the structure itself and release it at times of peak demand, said Mohamed Saafi, from Lancaster Universitys engineering department, who developed the technology.

We have a lot of buildings. If you could convert them into batteries it would pretty much solve a lot of our energy problems.

Professor Saafi notes that capacitors hold less energy by volume than batteries, but there is far more volume available if the new form of concrete was to be widely used as a building material.

We have whole buildings to use, and its cheap, he added.

Hats Off to State of the Nation and Mike Adams of Natural News  for two excellent summaries of how mainstream and social media fake news, the digital assassination of Alex Jones, Mike Adams and tens of thousands of conservative voices by the ADL (the Zionist secret police and trusted flaggers for #GoogleGestapo yes, we note the irony), and a possible false flag event are all converging as we approach Election Day 2018.

The goal: suppress all right of center votes, mobilize all left of center votes and the 47% who did not vote in 2016. My concern: President Trump is not engaging with the 99%, not confronting the Deep State on 9/11 and the many domestic false flag operations; not creating his own two-way Trump Truth Channel and public information ecology; not pressing for #UNRIG the Election Reform Act which would at a minimum mandate (and pay for) paper ballots counted publicly on site. If there is a major false flag event I predict it will be in Chicago where Rahm Emanuel, ubber-Zionist, can be trusted to do a Rudy Guliani and completely cover up the Deep State / Zionist contruction of the false flag or in Los Angeles, where there are so many pedophiles beholden to the Deep State that both law enforcement and the media will be easily controlled.

Monsanto Weedkiller Ruling Sparks Backlash Around the Globe Waking Times

Glyphosate, the worlds most popular herbicide, is at the center of international scrutiny after a San Francisco court on Friday decided in favor of a California school groundskeeper with terminal cancer.

The jury ruled that the plaintiff, Dewayne Lee Johnson, developed cancer from repeated exposure to RoundupMonsantos widely used glyphosate-based weedkiller, and ordered the company to pay $289 million in damages.

The landmark jury ruling, which could open the door for roughly 4,000 similar U.S. lawsuits against Monsanto, sparked outcry around the world.

Germanys Bayer, which purchased Monsanto this year for $63 billion, also purchased a potential mountain of legal costs. Shareholders are certainly spooked. Bayers stock tumbled as much as 14 percent on Monday, losing about 12 billion euros ($14 billion) in market value, Reuters reported.

Bayer defended the safety of glyphosate and said it would appeal the verdict. The jurys verdict is at odds with the weight of scientific evidence, decades of real world experience and the conclusions of regulators around the world that all confirm glyphosate is safe and does not cause non-Hodgkins lymphoma, the company said in a statement to Reuters.

Arachnid Chimera Group Disclosed in TV and Movies? The Event Chronicle

By Jonathan Carty

Since I have my laptop back I will be able to compile the several possible references to the Chimera Group who we have just learned are Arachnid beings incarnated into humanoid bodies. After Cobra revealed this just recently my mind went back to several shows and movies where a spider or something similar to a spider was depicted as being the very top of the control structure, which is the case for this planet.

(2012portal)

Now it can already be revealed that the Chimera are actually insectoid (arachnid) beings incarnated into humanoid bodies

The more fear they generate, the more they are rewarded.

Based on the title of the movie (Monsters Inc.) and the fact that this is a large operation within the movie, this indicates that this is a business and this is perfectly reflected with the information given to us by various whistle-blowers and researchers. These Archon/parasite beings require low-vibrationary energy (fear, anxiety, anger, rage, etc.) in order to live. For example, the more pain and fear generated in an SRA (Satanic Ritual Abuse) ritual, the happier and more fed the negative beings are.

Tom Paladino Scalar Energy Healing The Event Chronicle

Tom Paladino is a scalar energy researcher with 25 years of experience in helping people with chronic pathogenic illnesses.

By OMTimes Magazine

Tom Paladino began research with scalar energy during his undergraduate years. He was inspired by various scientists, especially Nikola Tesla, as to the existence of an energy that was not of the electromagnetic spectrum. With this inspiration, he pursued a course of independent study in order to better understand and subsequently harness scalar energy.

Scalar energy is also known as prana, chi, radiant energy, zero point energy, qi, orgone, eloptic energy. After years of experimentation and modification, Tom has developed a technique using scalar energy that will transmute pathogens quickly and painlessly. This technique facilitates the use of photographs of people who desire to have pathogens transmuted in their bodies.

Tom Paladino has participated in clinical trials with a medical institution. In the lab, they watched the pathogens (protozoa) disassemble in front of their eyes. Emboldened by these discoveries, he desires to present the world with the solution for ALL bacterial, fungal, protozoan and viral infections. It is his belief and statement that the scalar energy is capable of transmuting ALL pathogens thus presenting the world with the SOLUTION for thousands of pathogenic diseases.

How To Forgive Someone Who Is Not Sorry The Event Chronicle

By Power Of Positivity

In this life, its very possible that we will have encounters with multiple people in which they hurt our feelings deeply and show little to no remorse. One of the hardest things to do is to learn how to forgive someone despite the pain they have caused you. However, once you figure out what works for you, you will undoubtedly experience less longterm pain created by others.

We cant control their actions, but with some practice, we can control how we react to them. Weve put together a list of things for you to consider and try if youre struggling with how to forgive someone who isnt sorry.

Heres how to forgive someone who isnt sorry:

Turn Your Focus Inward

Forgiving is often associated with absolving the person who hurt you from their wrongdoing, but, if you change focus from them to yourself, youre able to work on the things you can control. Ask yourself, what do I need to feel better right now? Practice giving yourself whatever it is that you need. By focusing on what you need in the present moment, you remove yourself from the past experience and take action towards making yourself feel happy. Making yourself a priority is one of the most powerful ways to heal yourself.

In the process of letting go, you will lose many things from the past, but you will find yourself. -Deepak Chopra

Take Responsibility for Your Feelings

The words and actions of others can absolutely hurt us, but when were learning how to forgive someone we have to learn how to take responsibility for our own feelings. Though it may be challenging at first, we can only blame others for how we feel for so long. You must realize that when youre holding onto grudges it only hurts yourself.

By changing the way you choose to perceive the power that others have over you youll see a bright new world of unlimited potential for yourself youll know instantly how to forgive and let go of anything. -Dr. Wayne W Dyer

Recognize the Part You Played

This is one of the hardest parts of forgiveness but a necessary component in our personal growth. Our ego wan...

The Seven Essene Mirrors The Event Chronicle

The Essenes developed a means of defining human relationships which are called the Seven Essene Mirrors.

By OM Times Magazine

The Essenes constituted an ascetic Jewish group or sect which existed from around 150 BCE until AD 70. They related to other religious-political groups, such as the Sadducees. The name Essene comes from the Syrian term asaya, and the Aramaic essaya or esseno, all with the meaning of doctor, passes through Greek orum (Greek Therapeuts), and, finally, by esseni of Latin. The Essenian form is also accepted.

The Essenes have left us a beautiful analysis of human relationships. They separated into seven categories the way we relate in the course of our lives.

Wisely, they called these categories mirrors. Every moment of life our inner reality is mirrored in the actions, the choices, the language of the people around us.

The First of the Essene Mirrors

Refers to what we send to the one who is closest, in the present moment Do we feel anger, fear?

We mirror anger and fear. Do we feel joy and happiness? We echo joy and happiness. The first Essene mirror of human relationships is that of our presence in the present moment. The mystery of the first mirror is focused on what thing we send in the present moment to the people around us. When we are surrounded by individuals and models of behavior in which the feeling of anger and/or fear dominates, or it can be of joy and happiness, the mirror works in every way, what we see in the first mirror is the image of what we are in the present moment.

The Second of the Essene Mirrors

Subtler than the first, this mirror tells us about our judgments in the present moment. We can say that it refers to what is imposed on us subtly. They are the models that are imposed on us. This mirror suggests the question: Am I mirroring myself at this moment? The second essential mirror of human relations has a quality similar to the previous one, but it is a bit subtler.

Instead of reflecting on everything we are, it shows what we judge in the present moment. If you are surrounded by people in whom the behavior model causes frustration or triggers feelings of anger or bitterness and realizes that these models are not yours at that moment, then ask yourself, Are you showing me myself in the present moment? If you can honestly say no, there is a good chance that it is showing you what you are judging at that moment.

The Third of the Essene Mirrors

It refers to that beautiful sensation when we look into someones eyes, and we are drawn to it when something magical happens, and we want to spend as much time as possible with this person. The explanation is that we find in these cases something that we have lost, that we leave behind, to survive in this world.

These magical encounters mirror something we have lost, abandoned, or been taken away from. The third essential mirror of human relations i...

To the Jural Assemblies



Source: Paul Stramer | By Anna Von Reitz

Can a group of Irish Merchant Seamen be part of a Spanish Jural Assembly?

Can a group of Austrian Customs Agents be part of a French Jural Assembly?

Can a group of Territorial United States (British) Warrant Officers be part of an American Jural Assembly?

If you answered "No" to all three of the above, you are on the right side of the logic involved in the current senseless debate about whether or not you have to reclaim your birthright political status in order to participate in our Jural Assemblies.

Of course, you do. It is not a "personal choice" when it comes to this.

And if you don't want to reclaim your rights and property and prerogatives as an American, what are you doing getting involved in an American State Jural Assembly in the first place???

That's like someone from Hong Kong coming over here and offering to organize our counties for us.

Thank you very much for the help, but at the end of the day, you are a foreigner and you can't be a participant or electoral member of our Jural Assembly.

You must be claiming your "reversionary trust interest" and your birthright political status as a Virginian, Coloradan, Wisconsinite, etc. in order to participate in a State Jural Assembly.

And that choice does need to be official and recorded on the public record somewhere.

How To Help Your Children Manage Earths Chaotic Energy The Event Chronicle

By Jodi Parker

Can you feel the chaos? I know I canbut even more so, its effecting the kids. Helping children and families heal is my passion above all else. As a Mom of super-sensitive children myself, I have walked this road. As I type this my 8 and 12 year olds are bickering with each other. And while that is normal childhood behavior among siblings, lately I have lots of clients who are seeing escalating behavior and emotional swings in their children, and my kids havent been immune either. I see lots of kids being diagnosed with everything from autism to sensory processing disorder to ADHD to oppositional defiant disorder.

The struggle between light and dark on the planet is intensifying. We are seeing larger disparity between the haves and have nots, larger polarity between social issues (pick one: politics, education, marriage, skin color, medical decisions.), and increasing illnesses of the mind and body. Our food supply, water supply, and even the air we breathe are getting increasingly toxic. Our children, above all else, are the ones suffering most.

In previous blog posts I have talked about my quest towards purity in my environment. We eat organic, we drink filtered water, we use holistic medicine, we use organic personal care products, we avoid toxins whenever possible, and we drink lots of green drinks to help us process the toxins we cant avoid. And I will go into some of that information here. But what if you are doing everything right and your kids moods are still unbalanced? Whats your next step? Lets explore my three point plan to healing.

Atlantic Council - the four person NATO-funded team who advises Facebook on "propaganda" Signs of the Times

This is not at all comforting: during a week that's witnessed Alex Jones' social media accounts taken down by Facebook, Apple, Spotify and Google, and what appears to be a growing crackdown against alternative media figures including several prominent Libertarians, notably the Ron Paul Institute director, and the Scott Horton Show, who found their Twitter accounts suspended - we learn that the Atlantic Council is directly advising Facebook on identifying and removing "foreign interference" on the popular platform. While the initiative was initially revealed last May through an official Facebook media release, more details of the controversial think tank's role have been revealed. Supposedly the whole partnership is aimed at bringing more objectivity and neutrality to the process of rooting out fake accounts that pose the threat of being operated by nefarious foreign states. And yet as a new Reuters report confirms, Facebook is now itself a top donor to the Atlantic Council, alongside Western governments, Gulf autocratic regimes, NATO, various branches of the US military, and a number of major defense contractors and corporations. What's more is that the team of four total individuals running the Atlantic Council's Digital Forensic Research Lab (DFR Lab) is headed by a former National Security Council advisor for the last four years of the Obama administration, Graham Brookie, who is also its founder.

We shared the following: After more than a year of the Mueller investigation, millions of dollars and the Mainstream Media's (MSM) relentless attack on President Trump, what do we have? Nothing really. President Trump tweeted in February that if the goal of Russia was to create discord in the US then they have succeeded. "They are laughing their asses off in Moscow. Get smart America!" Since this tweet, the Russia fairy tale has fallen apart. Corrupt Mueller and his team of conflicted, biased and corrupt investigators and attorneys have found nothing related to their target, President Trump, and now their indictments are unraveling.

"There is an economic attack against Turkey": Erdogan vows to boycott US electronics in retaliation to US sanctions Signs of the Times

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has announced a boycott of American electronic products in response to Washington's economic pressure against Ankara after the detention of a US pastor in Turkey. "There is an economic attack against Turkey. Earlier such things were done in secret, and now they are open to us. We can react in two ways: economically and politically," Erdogan said in Ankara Tuesday. "Our Ministry of Finance and the Treasury are working day and night...we will boycott electronic goods from the United States. They have iPhones, but on the other hand there are Samsungs. We have our local brand Venus Vestel, we will use it," the Turkish president added. Share prices in Turkish electronics manufacturer Vestel rose sharply on Erdogan's comments.

What It Means to Live Life with Open Palms and How This Sets Us Free The Event Chronicle

By Benjamin Fishel

Letting go gives us freedom, and freedom is the only condition for happiness. If, in our heart, we still cling to anythinganger, anxiety, or possessionswe cannot be free. ~Thich Nhat Hanh

Roughly one year ago, I was having the time of my life.

Everything seemed to be going well. My stress levels were at an all-time low. I was enjoying myself in a new city. Work was engaging. My meditations were deep and fulfilling.

And when I looked back on things one year later, I was kind of, well, frustrated.

Because things havent been going that smoothly lately. Dont get me wrong; they havent been terrible. Im in a loving relationship, and Ive achieved a couple of significant milestones this year, but some aspects of life have been challenging.

A couple of months ago I was talking to a meditation teacher who I occasionally consult when Im having issues with my practice. I was honest about my situation, and my frustration with it.

So I asked her what I was genuinely thinking; why doesnt it feel like things are as good as they were twelve months ago?

And what she told me stunned me. I mean, it really left me thinking.

You need to start living life with open palms. You tried to grasp onto the good times you had, and the experience has gone. But any challenges you have now will also go, you just need to hold onto them softly, with open palms.

The metaphor was so poignant. It made complete sense. I could feel myself grasping onto the idea of the old scenario and making dozens of assumptions about the new one.

And those words stuck with me. They truly resonated. In fact, echoed might be a better description, because since then, whenever Ive started to stress and hold onto my problems too tightly, the image of two open palms would arise and drift around the back of my mind, calling me to pay attention to it.

Theres a reason why this metaphor is so accuratethe left cerebral hemisphere, which we use for focused attention, is also responsible for the grabbing motion our hand makes. The right hemisphere on the other hand (pun absolutely intended) is used for both open-minded thinking and open exploratory motions. So when someone tells you to hold on or to let go, theyre telling you what to do with your mind, not just your hands.

So over the last few weeks, Ive tried to reflect on what this means from a practical perspective, and while teachings like this take years to really digest, Ive come up with a few ways in which you can start to live life with open palms, right now.

Appreciate things momentarily.

Russia to modernize Tupolev Tu-95MS strategic missile-carrying bomber Signs of the Times

The Tupolev Aircraft Company will develop the modernized Tu-95MSM strategic missile-carrying bomber for Russia's Defense Ministry, the company's press office told TASS on Monday. "The contract for creating the heavily-modernized Tu-95MSM aircraft has already been concluded," the company's press office said. The details and the timeframe of the bomber's heavy upgrade have not yet been disclosed. As the company's press office said, the state trials of the operational Tu-95MS plane with the modernized engines are expected to be completed by the end of the year. The Tu-95MS strategic missile-carrying bomber is designated to accomplish strike missions to destroy major targets in remote military and geographical regions and deep in the rear of the continental theaters of operations with the employment of nuclear missile weapons. Russian Defense Minister Army General Sergei Shoigu earlier said that extending the service life of the strategic Tu-160 and Tu-95MS missile-carrying bombers and raising their combat efficiency were among priority tasks for Russia's Defense Ministry. The Russian defense minister also said that the Tupolev would repair eight strategic Tu-160 and Tu-95MS missile-carrying bombers by the end of 2018.

"Devil worshipper": Teenager suspected of burning down unique wooden church in Russia Signs of the Times

A historic 18th century church has burned to the ground in Russia's Republic of Karelia, after being deliberately set on fire. A teenager, referred to by some locals as a devil worshipper, is suspected of the arson. The Church of the Assumption of Our Lady, built in 1774 on a picturesque lakeshore in the town of Kondopoga in northwestern Russia, caught fire on Friday. The investigators said the structure started burning from inside, with the caretaker noticing the flames when it was already too late. The all-wooden 42-meter-tall church couldn't be saved by fire crews and was turned into ashes in just a few hours. A 15-year-old boy, who was visiting his grandmother in Karelia for the summer holidays, has been detained by the police over the incident. He reportedly used five liters of gasoline to destroy the historic building. Locals told Life tabloid that "the boy was a Satanist. He always dressed in black." According to witnesses, he didn't resist arrest, but was laughing when the officers handcuffed him.

Montenegro accuses ex-CIA officer of plotting coup with Russia to overthrow the government Signs of the Times

Prosecutors in Montenegro have demanded the arrest of former CIA officer Joseph Assad, accusing him of involvement in an alleged 2016 Russian-backed plot to overthrow the government and block the country's inclusion in NATO. Assad - an Egyptian-American who came to the US in 1990 before serving as a counterterrorism specialist in the CIA, has denied the charges, claiming that he was in Montenegro to provide personal security advice to a political consultant from the west. He has asked that the US reject any extradition request. "This is a deception campaign against a loyal American who had no role in any crimes or coup in Montenegro," Assad said in a statement issued on Saturday through his lawyer, reports The Guardian.

Orcas in Norway, video Dear Kitty. Some blog

This 9 August 2018 video says about itself:

Orcas Co-Exist With Norways Arctic Fishermen

From The Shadows: The symbiotic relationship between Atlantic orcas and the fishermen of Norway is unique. Following this story, underwater photographer Jacques de Vos captures the first footage of the whales feeding at night.

In Northern Norway herring abounds, attracting orcas in their hundreds. Having learnt that escaped herring from the fishermens nets are easy prey, the whales can hear the fishing boats pumping their catch from as far as 18km away.

Sometimes its kind of like we help each other, says professional fisherman Borre Hansen, as orcas circle around his boat. Ensuring that no orcas are captured in his nets is the biggest challenge he faces. Filming these animals for the first time at night, Jacques is able to capture their secretive underwater world, noticing their playful and inquisitive behaviour. This was as much a social get together as it was about the feeding, he marvels.

10 numbers that demonstrate America's current financial condition is a disaster waiting to happen Signs of the Times

America's long-term "balance sheet numbers" just continue to get progressively worse. Unfortunately, since the stock market has been soaring and the GDP numbers look okay, most Americans assume that the U.S. economy is doing just fine. But the stock market was soaring and the GDP numbers looked okay just prior to the great financial crisis of 2008 as well, and we saw how that turned out. The truth is that GDP is not the best measure for the health of the economy. Judging the U.S. economy by GDP is basically like measuring the financial health of an individual by how much money he or she spends, and I will attempt to illustrate that in this article. If I went out right now and got a whole bunch of new credit cards and started spending money like there was no tomorrow, would that mean that my financial condition had improved? No, in fact it would mean that my long-term financial condition just got a whole lot worse. GDP is a measurement of how much economic activity is happening in our society, and it is basically an indication of how much money is changing hands. But just because more money is changing hands does not mean that things are going well. What really matters is what is happening to assets and liabilities. In other words, is wealth being built or is more debt just being accumulated?

Turkey claims social media accounts are provoking crash of the lira

The Turkish government is taking legal action against hundreds of social media accounts which they claim has provoked the ongoing plummet of the lira.

Turkeys Interior Ministry said it has initiated legal investigations against 346 social media accounts which posted content provoking the dollar exchange rate.

The lira has lost more than 40 per cent against the dollar this year, largely over worries about President Erdogans policies.

Well Mr Erdogan, if you wage expensive bloody war on your own people; on the people of Syria; on the people of Iraq; then it is not that surprising that the Turkish economy (and maybe other countries economies) gets ruined. You should look at the man in the mirror instead of blaming Turkish people reporting facts on the Internet and censoring them.

UK may not have tent cities like US, but encampments have become feature of British life Sun-bleached food packaging and the fading remnants of a campfire are the only clues that people used to live in woodland near Cardiff Bay. Residents nearby said the homeless men living in Hamadryad Park had left shortly after Aaron French-Willcox, 19, was found cold and unresponsive in a tent at an encampment in the early hours of 13 February. French-Wilcox, who had type one diabetes and died from diabetic ketoacidosis, started living in one of the three tents at the site after he was reportedly caught taking the synthetic cannabinoid spice at a homeless shelter three weeks before his death. "He didn't belong out here," said a Cardiff rough sleeper who knew him. "He was a nice guy. Goodhearted. Just a decent 19-year-old." The teenager was one of a growing number of homeless people in temporary and semi-permanent encampments throughout the UK, in what has become an increasingly common fixture of British life, living underneath bridges, clearings in woodland and quieter corners of city centres.

Using the Burka: Boris Johnsons Bid for Popularity Dissident Voice

Comedy, Boris Johnson, and the Tories these three share a certain comforting, if chaotic, affinity, lobbed together in some nightmarish union that risks consuming itself.  But times are serious profoundly so, we are told: Brexit exercises the nerves as if Britannia were a patient about to expire, and there is the cultural irritation posed by those naughty elements who refuse to do the good thing and integrate themselves into the land of her Britannic majesty.

Thus far, Britain has resisted the moves of other states in Europe to impose public bans on such religious coverings as the burka and some of its more expansive cognates.  But there is a prevailing appetite for such measures in a climate suffused with notions of civilisation, irate outsiders and insecure insiders.  France was a pioneer in that regard, initiating a ban in 2004.  In Denmark, rough measures have been implemented punishing those who don such headdress in public spaces.

A perfect chance for Johnson, who remains a smouldering menace to Prime Minister Theresa May, to strike form, even if only to rile critics and keep the blogosphere busy.  In Britain today there is only a tiny, tiny minority of women who wear these odd bits of headgear, he noted in his regular Daily Telegraph column last week.  Confidently, he claimed that, One day, I am sure, they will go.

His has little time for assuming that women have any choice in the matter.  If you say that it is weird and bullying to expect women to cover their faces, then I totally agree and I would add that I can find no scriptural authority for the practice in the Koran.

Nothing is spared. The whole show is given, and any social or academic nicety is given over to a populist punchiness.  I would go further and say that it is absolutely ridiculous that people should choose to go around looking like letter boxes. But Johnson returns to a traditional stance taken to such articles of wear: they should not be banned. The only resort, then, is to mock.

It becomes clear what this exercise was about.  The burka, and Islamic dress, might well have found themselves objects of pure, unalloyed opportunism for yet another push for recognition from fellow Tories that Johnson remains a relevant contender for high office.  He might have resigned from the front bench in an act of calculated sabotage, but he glows.

The Conservative Party has found itself in a bind.  Something needed to be done, as the current wisdom goes, but what?  An investigation is currently being taken, a fairly pointless exercise that serves to supply valuable oxygen to Johnsons flame of embellished martyrdom.  Communities and Local Government Secretary James Brokenshire told BBC Breakfast that an investigation into complaints made about Johnsons comments was taking place and...

Motherhood is changing. Why isnt the fertility process, too? Fast Company

More women than ever are undergoing fertility treatment on their own. Yet the process is designed almost exclusively for couples. Smart Designs Stephanie Yung explores a better way in this three-part series called Project Junior.

Back in my twenties, I never imagined myself single and setting out to have my first child at more than 40 years of age, but an increasing number of women are doing just that. Bucking the tradition of a nuclear family, today we see about one in four mothers in the U.S. raising children on their own. Theres a rise in blended families, and a record number of people who have never been married. In the mid 90s, it was almost unheard-of for a never-married woman in her early 40s with a postgraduate degree to have a child. Today, 25% of women who fit that profile do have a child, and Im about to swell their ranks.

DSP Satellite FastWalkers (UFOs) Terra Forming Terra


Consider that the information provided here is already fifty years old.  What is important is that those satellites confirm several atmospheric transitions every week.  Other observations have actually seen them enter water in particular.  Other above sea level access points may exist as well particularly around the SW desert.

It is clear though that accessing a base by going underwater is a preferred method.
 
That quality of security will start to disappear though as our own deep sea tech has become effective.

Thus full disclosure must happen within the next three decades and is certainly underway already.  After all, actual sightings are increasing and disguised aliens are making like tourists as well..

The DSP analyzes the temperature, location and trajectory of a hot infrared source could build up both a description of the type of missile as well as its target dramatically reducing the chances of a surprise ICBM attack. The satellite weighed about 2,000 pounds and had a 12-foot long Schmidt infrared telescope with a linear array of 2,048 lead sulfide detectors that detected infrared energy. The satellite rotated six times per minute as the sensor scanned the entire face of the Earth. The sensor provided below-the-horizon coverage by spotting the missiles exhaust plume and carried sensors for detecting nuclear explosions in the atmosphere....

This can only bring attention to a religious movement and whatever else they attempt to impose, the public will merely ignore.  All this will trigger organized passive resistance.

Qanon Media Deconsolidation Terra Forming Terra



On the corporate front two major initiatives have long been powerfully indicated.I have little doubt that they are underway in the planning stages since Trump landed.

The easy one is the breakup of the Too big to fail crowd and the reestablishment of the original regulatory regime separating ordinary retail banking from any form of investment banking.  This was changed just as clinton left office and led directly to the 2008 crash and the need for 'quantative easing' or money printing.

The more difficult is the smashing of all forms of media monopoly whatsoever. Their access to capital has been through merger after merger and their capacity for internal promotion that came with it.  Thus today we have a single source media that acts exactly like a propaganda machine who even is trying to clumsily suppress competition.  Their abuses have now become visible and their breakup is certainly necessary and it is coming.

This item from Q merely confirms that this is at the top of the legislative agenda and will be underway during the next two years..  .

Does removing sugar from your diet starve cancer cells? Terra Forming Terra




Somewhere along the way an old doctor had success with his patients by essentially starving them of all foods except cabbage soup.  Sounds boring and all that but this would certainly impose the protocol indicated here.

I also keep coming back to this because it prevents backsliding which is the enemy of every dietary approach.  I am sure a few other veggies work as well but starting with a large bowl of cabbage soup is pretty safe.

I have never actually had any reports on all this and my experience is that no one takes good advice or even truly safe advice. .

UN Gives Unconditional 'Green Light' For Shifting "The Rescued" To Europe After the Shift

The global establishment goes out of its way to increase the number of immigrants in Europe. If the governments of particular states such as Hungary, Poland or now Italy oppose these activities, they are internationally marginalized. And if an action goes counter to the plans of international organizations, they are trying to come up with new legal interpretations that will be binding on the parties concerned. All of which is only possible because the EU member countries have relinquished their sovereignty and transferred it to international institutions.

The Prison House of the Punishment of Flesh... in Search of Liberation. Reflections in a Petri Dish

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

Ah... the blooming... ever loving beauty and wonder of God. There is nothing in life that can be compared in value, metaphorical or literal that can come close to the presence of God in your life. Without God you have nothing. Every shine. Every impression of wealth. Every imagined security. Every concept of influence you may have is meaningless, if God is not in your life. Isn't it remarkable that God is real? More remarkable is that God is good. God is the ever loving beauty and wonder of God.

These are shameful times. People are pressing and pressing for this or that and the ironic truth is that everyone is looking for God. They just don't know that and that is why everything else is a disappointment and that is why we all grow weary. We get tired and stumble along with a saddlebag filled with regrets. Paramahansa Yogananda once said something like; take all your cares and sorrows and woes and put them in a bag and throw them in the ocean and then walk away with God. That's not verbatim but it is the solution. When you do this, what you are doing is handing your life over to the ineffable, who knows all the comings and goings, who is at the beginning and the end of all things and the certainty of continuance, through the process, between the beginning and end.

Once you know that God exists. That is all it takes. From then on, having turned the rudder over to the steady and unshakable hand of the supreme being, your life then moves through the most expedient and righteous way home homeward bound, I wish I was, homeward bound

It seems so complex somehow. They say the devil is in the details. Confusion is the order of his disorder. It does not have to be so hard. Trust and Faith are two of the important qualities of God. The confusion makes us weak and hesitant. We drift. The hand on the rudder is not steady. Sensations come from every angle and direction. Look at me! Look and me! Desire me! Conspire within to acquire whatever it is that is acquiring you in the process take another little piece of my heart now baby So it is that we become divided against ourselves, conflicted, the punishment of the prison house of flesh. We torture ourselves. Nothing in this world is worth having and you never really have it. There is no war. There is no natural disaster. The war is within. The unnatural disaster is the push and pull of the planets within. A wise man rules the stars. You are on a surf board in a sense and here is one of those areas that the New Age tricksters like to work... go with the flow. Right. Flow right into the abyss. It is true that this...

Russian military downs five drones near Khmeimim Air Base in Syria as UAV attacks increase Signs of the Times

Five more drones have been shot down by Russia's Air Defense units near Khmeimim Air Base in Syria in the last 24 hours, the military confirmed. Drone attacks by militants have intensified in recent weeks. The objects were launched from the militant-controlled area in the Idlib de-escalation zone, according to the head of the Russian Center for Reconciliation of the opposing sides in Syria, Maj. Gen. Alexei Tsygankov, as cited by TASS. The hostile unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) was shot down not far from the base and the incident caused no injuries or damage, Tsygankov added. Shooting down militant drones has become somewhat routine for the Russian military at Khmeimim Air Base, located south-east of the port of Latakia. On Sunday the Russian military said it had repelled two drone attacks "at a safe distance from the base." On Saturday a drone, apparently carrying explosives, was downed on approach to Khmeimim, also from the militant-held de-escalation zone in Idlib.

'Unprecedented' flash floods kill dozens in Kerala, India Signs of the Times

Dozens of people have been killed, and tens of thousands more evacuated, after "unprecedented" flash flooding in a tourist hotspot in southern India. At least 37 people have died since heavy monsoonal rains first struck the state of Kerala on Wednesday, the state's relief commissioner P.H. Kurian told CNN on Sunday. The area, located on the tropical Malabar Coast, is famed for its network of idyllic waterways. Another 40,000 people living in low-lying areas have now been evacuated to 350 relief camps, as the downpour caused landslides and overflowed reservoirs. Monsoon rains are to be expected in India this time of the year. But after days of abnormally heavy rains, authorities on Friday opened the shutters of water reservoirs in an effort to prevent potentially disastrous breaches. "Our state is in the midst of an unprecedented flood havoc," explained Kerala chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan, in a statement Friday. "For the first time in history, 27 dams in the state had to be opened. Never before has the state witnessed a calamity of this scale," the minister added.

Is Russia an Adversary? Dissident Voice

The question is finally being asked, by the president himself: whats wrong with collusion? Or at least his lawyer asks the question, while Trumps tweets:

Collusion is not a crime, but that doesnt matter because there was No Collusion.

The problem, of course, is that of collusion with an alleged adversary. Russia, we are constantly informed, is one such adversary, indeed the main state adversary, with Putin is its head.

Adversary is a very strong term. The Hebrew word for adversary is Satan. Satan is the ultimate symbol of evil in the Judeo-Christian tradition. Satan tempted Eve at the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, causing her to eat the fruit, and so evil entered the world.

Just like some want you to think that evil entered the (good, pristine) U.S. electoral process due to this Russian adversary in 2016.

(Sometimes listening to TV pundits vilifying Putin I find Luthers famous hymn floating through my head:

For still our ancient foe doth seek to work us woe.
His craft and power are great, and armed with cruel hate, on earth is not his equal.

Luthers referring to Satan, of course. But the current mythology around Putin as someone who still, like Lenin and Stalin before him, and the tsars of old, wishes us harm; is an unbridled dictator with a powerful great nuclear arsenal; is the wealthiest man on earth; and hates democracy resembles the mythology around the Adversary in the Bible.)

But let us problematize this vilification. When did Russia become a U.S. adversary? Some might say 1917 when in the wake of the Bolshevik Revolution Moscow became the center of the global communist movement. But surely that period ended in 1991 with the dissolution of the Warsaw Pact and the USSR.

Throughout the 1990s the U.S. cultivated Boris Yeltsins Russia as a friend and even aided the drunken buffoon in winning the 1996 election. Bill Clinton and Yeltsin signed the Start II treaty. Harvard professors advised Moscow on economic reform.

The Russians were not pleased by U.S.-NATO involvements in the former Yugoslavia, a traditional Russian ally, in 1995 and 1999, and the expansion of NATO in the latter year (to include Poland, Czechoslovakia and Hungary) in violation of the agreement between Ronald Reagan and former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev in 1989 that in return for Russias acceptance of German reunification NATO would not spread one inch towards Russia. They protested meekly. But Russia was not an adversary then.

Nor was it an adversary when, in 2001, under its new president Vladimir Putin, it offered NATO a route through Russia to provision forces in Afghanistan after the 9/11 attacks. The real change only came in 2004, when NATO suddenly expanded to include Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Bulgaria, Romania, Slovakia and Slov...

Mission Accomplished: Why Solidarity Boats to Gaza Succeed Despite Failing to Break the Siege Dissident Voice

When Mike Treen, the National Director of the Unite Union in New Zealand arrived at the airport in the capital, Auckland, on August 1, a group of people were anxiously waiting for him at the terminal with Palestinian flags and flowers. They hugged him, chanted for Palestinian freedom and performed the customary native Haka dance.

For them, Mike, as all of those who set sail aboard the Freedom Flotilla to Gaza last July, were heroes.

But the truth is Mike Treen and his comrades were not the only heroes for braving the sea with the aim of breaking the hermetic Israeli military blockade on the impoverished and isolated Gaza Strip. Without those who were present at the Auckland airport, upon Mikes arrival, and without the thousands of supporters all across the world who have mobilized as a community held numerous meetings, raised funds, created a powerful media discourse, and so on Treens attempted trip to Gaza would not have been possible in the first place.

The first boats to successfully break the Gaza siege, in October, 2008 were the Free Gaza and the Liberty. They carried 44 people from 17 countries. The activists wanted to push their countries to acknowledge the illegality of the Israeli blockade on Gaza and to, eventually, challenge the siege.

Their triumphant arrival in Gaza ten years ago, marked a historic moment for the international solidarity movement, a moment, perhaps, unparalleled. Since then, Israel has launched several massive and deadly wars on Gaza. The first war took place merely weeks after the arrival of the first boats, followed by another war in 2012 and, the deadliest of them all, in 2014. The siege grew tighter.

Also, since then, many attempts have been made at breaking the siege. Between 2008 and 2016, 31 boats have sailed to Gaza from many destination, all intercepted, their cargo seized and their passengers mistreated. The most tragic of these incidents was in May 2010 when the Israeli navy attacked the Mavi Marmara ship which sailed alongside other boats killing 10 activists and wounding many more.

Even then, the stream of solidarity boats continued to arrive, not only unhindered by the fear of Israeli retribution, but also stronger in their resolve. Palestinians consider the killed activists as martyrs to be added to their own growing list of martyrs.

WJ

ANSWER: Yes. I have several hoards I will make available some that I bought probably back in the 1970s. There are no major quantities. Generally less than 100 of various types. I do have a very nice lot of bronze Sestertius, which is the main Roman coin used as the unit of account pictured above.

I have only perhaps 50 Judaea widows mites which were the coin that was presented in the Synoptic Gospels (Mark 12:41-44, Luke 21:1-4), in which Jesus is teaching at the Temple in Jerusalem.

Italy Warns that Stopping QE will Lead to Collapse of Eurozone Armstrong Economics

Italy has called on the ECB to guarantee the bond yields warning that if they END quantitative easing the Eurozone will break apart. On this score, they are not wrong. The economic spokesman for the Italian governing party Lega has warned of a collapse of the Eurozone. The ECB should ensure that the yield spreads of government bonds of the euro countries are contained and not allowed to soar. This is what Claudio Borghi told Reuters. Either the ECB offers a guarantee or the euro will break apart. Interest on Italian, Spanish and Portuguese bonds rose in response to the currency crisis in Turkey. Borghi warned that this situation cannot be solved and will explode in everyones face. This is the Sovereign Debt Crisis coming into play. We are no looking at the risk premium for ten-year Italian government bonds has risen to 2.7% above Germany. The promise that a single currency would produce a single interest rate has been a complete failure.

This is what I have been warning about. Ten years of QE has FAILED to stimulate the economy of Europe, it has only made governments addicted to the ECB buying their debt at absurd low levels in rate. The Eurozone will indeed break apart once QE stops for rates will soar and tensions will then rise among the 28 member states for the promise of a single currency would produce a single interest rate pointing to the USA as their proof was a lie. The USA federal debt had a single rate because it was a single authority issuing the debt, not 28 separate states.

It was an effort to foster something vaguely resembling competition in the broadband space by letting smaller companies piggyback on existing network infrastructure. The thought was that because the barriers to market entry were so high (both politically and financially), this could help smaller competitors gain footholds that would otherwise be impossible.

The Price of Cheap Dollar/Euro Debts: Local Currencies Come Unglued, Debt Crises Ensue BlackListed News

On Monday, Argentinas central bank responded to the currency chaos in Turkey and other sections of the Emerging Markets, including the ongoing collapse of the Argentine peso: It raised its policy rate by five percentagepoints to 45%. Argentinas annual rate of inflation in June surged to nearly 30%, and indications are that this is getting worse. The central bank (the BCRA) is part of the Ministry of Finance, has no independence, and has been tasked over the decades to fund government spending. But at least the current government publishes inflation data. The prior government made inflation a secret and made independent publication of inflation data illegal.

But on Friday, a court stayed the FCC decision pending appeal, saying that Tribal organizations and small wireless carriers are likely to win their case against the commission.

Massive stars, abrasive winds, mountains of dust, and energetic light sculpt one of the largest and most picturesque regions of star formation in the Local Group of Galaxies. Known as N11, the region is visible on the upper right of many images of its home galaxy, the Milky Way neighbor known as the Large Magellanic Clouds (LMC).

The above image was taken for scientific purposes by the Hubble Space Telescope and reprocessed for artistry by an amateur to win the Hubble's Hidden Treasures competition. Although the section imaged above is known as NGC 1763, the entire N11 emission nebula is second in LMC size only to 30 Doradus. Studying the stars in N11 has shown that it actually houses three successive generations of star formation. Compact globules of dark dust housing emerging young stars are also visible around the image.

Scientists Have Successfully Reversed The Aging of Human Cells Awareness Act

The idea of living forever is one that lots of people are interested in. Immortality is something we have seen in movies and all kinds of other things for years now, the world is seemingly fascinated by it.

I recently came across a study that was published in July in the journal Aging that really got me thinking, big time. In this study, delivering hydrogen sulfide directly to mitochondria is described as something that can allow old cells to literally regain their dividing abilities making them more like younger cells. Hydrogen sulfide is for those who do not know, dangerous in high doses. That being said, it could be the key to something spectacular.

The abstract of this study goes as follows:

Cellular senescence is a key driver of aging, influenced by age-related changes to the regulation of alternative splicing. Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) has similarly been described to influence senescence, but the pathways by which it accomplishes this are unclear.

We assessed the effects of the slow release H2S donor Na-GYY4137 (100 g/ml), and three novel mitochondria-targeted H2S donors AP39, AP123 and RT01 (10 ng/ml) on splicing factor expression, cell proliferation, apoptosis, DNA replication, DNA damage, telomere length and senescence-related secretory complex (SASP) expression in senescent primary human endothelial cells.

All H2S donors produced up to a 50% drop in senescent cell load assessed at the biochemical and molecular level. Some changes were noted in the composition of senescence-related secretory complex (SASP); IL8 levels increased by 24% but proliferation was not re-established in the culture as a whole. Telomere length, apoptotic index and the extent of DNA damage were unaffected. Differential effects on splicing factor expression were observed depending on the intracellular targeting of the H2S donors. Na-GYY4137 produced a general 1.9 3.2-fold upregulation of splicing factor expression, whereas the mitochondria-targeted donors produced a specific 2.5 and 3.1-fold upregulation of SRSF2 and HNRNPD splicing factors only. Knockdown of SRSF2 or HNRNPD genes in treated cells rendered the cells non-responsive to H2S and increased levels of senescence by up to 25% in untreated cells.

Our data suggest that SRSF2 and HNRNPD may be implicated in endothelial cell senescence, and can be targeted by exogenous H2S. These molecules may have potential as moderators of splicing factor expression and senescence phenotypes.

Sure, true complete age reversal is not something any of us will see in our lifetimes but this study does seem to suggest it is not as far out of reach as we think it is. While it is a long way from now, it could be possible in the future. You see, aging invol...

I'd always thought that fate was something unchangeable: fixed for every one of us at birth, and as constant as the circuit of the stars.

Chet Raymo, Salt And Nerves Running 'Cause I Can't Fly

Salt And Nerves
by Chet Raymo

I like to think that every day offers at least one unique revelation, some one thing seen or experienced that has not been seen or experienced before, at least not in the same emotional state, in the same context, in the same slant of light. So I walk wary, as the poet Sylvia Plath says, "ignorant/ Of whatever angel may choose to flare/ Suddenly at my elbow." Nature seldom disappoints.

Let me introduce you to another poet, my colleague here at the college, Anna Ross. In the particular poem I want to share she is walking with a companion and comes upon the bleached skeleton of an elk, its upturned ribcage "picked white as crocus tips in the long grass." An animal skeleton, in a place where such an encounter is not unexpected. But this skeleton, "skull nosing/ the green suggestion of water/ in the run-off ditch" brings the walkers up short. They see their house in the distance, and the weather coming east, "skinning the gray jaw-lines of the ridges." The poet's language holds the elk in a context of earth and sky: "skinning," "jaw-lines."

The angel flares. "Do we find these things," asks the poet, "or are they in us like salt and nerves?" This of course is the fundamental question of philosophy: Do we perceive reality objectively, or do we create reality? The scientist and the poet stake out their claims somewhere along a spectrum of objectivity/subjectivity, and hone their tools accordingly. Anna Ross asks the question - do we find these things or are they in us? - and lets it hang there, unanswered, in the pregnant air, as she and her companion turn back toward home, encountering, as they do, a grouse in the path, "...

How Rockefeller Founded Big Pharma and Waged War on Natural Medicine Operation Disclosure

How Rockefeller Founded Big Pharma And Waged War On Natural Cures

July 1, 2018

Source: US Health Magz



Western medicine has some good points, and is great in an emergency, but its high time people realized that todays mainstream medicine (western medicine or allopathy), with its focus on drugs, drugs, radiation, drugs, surgery, drugs and more drugs, is at its foundation a money spinning Rockefeller creation.

People these days look at you like a weirdo if you talk about the healing properties of plants or any other holistic practices. Much like anything else, politics and money have been used to warp peoples minds and encourage them to embrace what is bad for them.

It all began with John D. Rockefeller (1839 1937) who was an oil magnate, a robber baron, Americas first billionaire, and a natural-born monopolist.

By the turn on the 20th century, he controlled 90% of all oil refineries in the U.S. through his oil company, Standard Oil, which was later on broken up to become Chevron, Exxon, Mobil etc.

World Affairs reports: At the same time, around 1900, scientists discovered petrochemicals and the ability to create all kinds of chemicals from oil. For example, the first plastic called Bakelite was made from oil in 1907. Scientists were discovering various vitamins and guessed that many pharmaceutical drugs could be made from oil.

This was a wonderful opportunity for Rockefeller who saw the ability to monopolize the oil, chemical and the medical industries at the same time!

Twelve years after receiving a cache of CIA documents related to the MKUltra program, John Greenewald of the Black Vault realized that thousands of pages had been omitted. Now, he's asking the internet for help.

John Greenewald has spent his life trying to pry secrets out of the US government. Now, hes asking for some help to get his hands on some of the most elusive documents hes ever tried to nab.

On Wednesday of last week, Greenewald, who runs the declassified-document clearinghouse the Black Vault, started a crowdfunding campaign on GoFundMe to raise money for the fee the Central Intelligence Agency is charging him for his latest Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request. Hes hunting for documents related to the notorious MKUltra program (often referred to as the CIA's "mind control" project), an endeavour he embarked on after realizing that the agency had left out thousands of pages from a FOIA request Greenewald filed about the program back in 2004.

The fee, based on reproduction costs set at ten cents per page, comes out to $425.80. Greenewald said he was denied a waiver, usually given to members of the media or FOIAs that pass a public-interest test. Theres really not much I can do besides cut the check, he told me over the phone.

As of Monday, hes over halfway toward his fundraising goal, which he set at $500 to account for GoFundMe fees and potential surprise surcharges.

BATR: Controlled Virtual Reality by Algorithms Operation Disclosure

Controlled Virtual Reality by Algorithms

Algorithms function as filters to identify dangerous voices of reason and common sense. Eradicating any kind of dissent or historic cultural viewpoints is automated in the digital cloud of approved thinking. The canard that the masters of artificial truth are private companies and are not subject to Bill of Right protections is an insult to anyone who is committed to the building of a free society. Google, YouTube, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram have emerged as monopolies that restrict speech and excel at censorship.

Several years ago Jane Wakefield's article in the BCC world cited the following.

"In his book, The Filter Bubble, Eli Pariser questions how far Google's data-crunching algorithm go in harvesting our personal data and shaping the web we see accordingly.

Meanwhile, a recent study by psychologists at Columbia University found that reliance on search engines for answers is actually changing the way humans think."

Gathering personal data and online habits allow for the assignment of a social score based upon factors and behavior that the monolithic gatekeepers are establishing. If this is not the formula for the apocalyptic "Mark of the Beast" then what would you call it?

Jon Rappoport -- Monsanto Loses Lawsuit and Two Hundred Million Operation Disclosure

Monsanto loses lawsuit and two hundred million

By Jon Rappoport

A lot of people were waiting for this day. It finally arrived.

Reuters:"...a California jury ordered [Monsanto]...to pay $289 million for not warning of cancer risks posed by its main weed killer [Roundup]."

"The case of school groundskeeper Dewayne Johnson, filed in 2016, was fast-tracked for trial due to the severity of his non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, a cancer of the lymph system that he alleges was caused by Roundup and Ranger Pro, another Monsanto glyphosate herbicide."

More than 5000 lawsuits against Monsanto and Roundup are waiting in the wings, and this verdict, in favor of Johnson, is a strong signal to future juries.

Of course, Monsanto, and its new parent company, Bayer, claim last week's court ruling was deeply flawed and Roundup is not a health threat; an appeal is in the works.

And that is where the danger lies.

As you go higher in the court system, judges, not juries, are making the decisions, the judges tend to be appointed on the basis of their politics.

Official science IS politics, with mega-corporations the favored clients.

Monsanto's lawyers will be able to restate the EPA [Environmental Protection Agency] assessment that Roundup is not a proven or likely carcinogen.

The judges of an appeals court could decide, for example, that the scientific evidence presented by both sides "cancels itself out" and leaves a definitive opinion on Roundup in maybe-limbo "at the present time." Therefore, the accuser, Dewayne Johnson, has not proved his case. Therefore, there is no judgment in his favor, and no $$ penalty against Monsanto.

I would say Monsanto (and its new owner Bayer) are counting on this scenario.

Could we also be talking about secret payoffs (or blackmail) to assure a favorable outcome? I'm abs...

16 Characteristics You Will Notice If You Were Born With A Naturally Higher Frequency Awareness Act

We all operate on our own frequencies. Some people operate on a higher frequency whereas others are more comfortable on a lower one.

While we can all grow to be more conscious and be more like
higher frequency individuals, some people are just naturally already in tune with something more. Not everyone starts out on the same level and some people are able to move forward much more quickly than others. We all do things at our own pace and no one is on the same journey, that is why these differences are present.

If you want to know whether or not you are already moving through life on a higher frequency all you need to do is see if the following things apply to you. If so, you are definitely operating on a much higher level than most. While this doesnt mean you are done learning or that you are at your peak it does set you apart from the rest.

16 Things You Will Notice When Youre A Higher Frequency Being:

1. You hear spirits/angels from time to time.

You notice small whispers from time to time. These are reminders and messages all from those who are not necessarily in this dimension. You have been gifted like this for quite some time.

2. The moods of others directly affect you.

When someone around you is down in the dumps it puts you down in the dumps. The moods and things others are going through really get to you. You just cant keep them from affecting you.

3. Time passes by a lot faster for you than it does for others.

Some people complain about time going by too slow but to you, its always moving way too quickly. You feel like even an hour lasts for just a few minutes. Nothing will slow down for you and its always been this way. The days just fly by.

4. You can feel the energies around you.

You can read the energy of a room before you even enter it. Its like energies are radiating off of things and you can almost see them. You are more energetically inclined than most people.

5. You rarely get sick.

You dont get sick often because your immune system works quite well. Its like no matter how many sick people you find yourself around youre always fine.

6. You are wise beyond your years.

You are much wiser than most others, because you are able to tap into something more. Even the most unusual situations you can find ways out of.

7. You are almost always quite happy.

Overall, you are a happy individual, and you never let life get you down. When something bad happens you make the most of it.

8. Meditation comes naturally to you.

You have been meditating since before you even knew what it was. This is your way of releasing stress and energizing your soul. You do it daily.

9. Your intuition is extremely prominent.

You tend to feel th...

A First in #Lebanon: Man Jailed for Killing Dog Blog Baladi

The hearing came out after the dog killer was filmed catching dogs and putting them in the trunk, and there was enough evidence to put him behind bars. Unfortunately, ten days is nothing but still better than letting him roam free.

Vaccination Mindset: Terrified of Germs, Trusting of Toxins Humans Are Free

A people without knowledge of their past, origin and culture is like a tree without roots. - Marcus Garvey

All over the world, parents are reacting out of fear. They are terrified of germs, yet they trust toxic injections. Why does the Western world adopt a culture of vaccination? Because we fear microbes.

We have been trained to believe that communicable diseases are life threatening and that we are powerless to fight them without vaccinations. After all, it is reasoned, people used to die from diseases like the measles, didnt they?

Although this is true, we dont look at the evidence in perspective. In the past, we didnt have access to clean water and nutritious food. Under conditions like these, many mild illnesses posed a serious threat and were more likely to prove fatal.

Dark Foreboding: Is the American Democratic Experiment Over Dissident Voice

Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;

Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.

William Butler Yeats, The Second Coming, 1919

Apocalyptic thinking has been with us for a long time, and it sometimes ushers in actual apocalypses, albeit at human scale, without biblical finality. For a century now, the Yeats poem above has served as an increasingly common reference point for those who fear apocalyptic events approaching. Today such fears are varied, the threats are real, and reactions range from crisis-mongering to self-serving denial, making any rational, coherent societal response almost impossible.

Weve been heading this way for decades. We finally got here in 2016. Its taken awhile, but the forces of chaos and greed seem to be cohering, tightening their grip on power, on government and culture, facing little or no effective opposition. An election is coming. It will matter. But how?

Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world

Worse, things are under attack, the center is the enemy. The US president veers toward dictatorial powers and seeks out new targets to disrupt or destroy. The US wages war around the world in at least 7 countries (with combat forces in 146 according to Seymour Hersh). The US Environmental Protection Agency wages war on the environment along with public health and safety. The US Education Department wages war on public education. The US Justice Department wages war on Justice, turning law enforcement into a profit-making, human-trafficking criminal enterprise. The US Department of Housing and Urban Development wages war on the poor, as do other agencies. The US Labor Department wages war on labor. The US Supreme Court wages war on pretty much 99% of the population. And so it goes: almost everywhere one looks, there is almost no center left to hold. Resistance is scattered, ineffective, inconsistent, fragmented mere anarchy is loosed upon the world.

The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;

This is our country that has loosed a blood-dimmed tide across the globe for decades. This is American exceptionalism that has flooded countries from Iran to Guatemala with its citizens blood for American ends. This endless flow of American violence and death has drowned our innocence, and still so many of us pretend there is no b...

The Dogon Mystery: How Could A Primitive Tribe Know the Unknowable? The Event Chronicle

By Stranger Times

Like many African tribes, the Dogon people of the Republic of Mali have a shadowed past.They settled on the Bandiagara Plateau, where they now live, some time between the 13th and 16th centuries. For most of the year, their homeland 300 miles (500 km) south of Timbuktu is a desolate, arid, rocky terrain of cliffs and gorges, dotted with small villages built from mud and straw. Although most anthropologists would class them as primitive, the two million people who make up the Dogon and surrounding tribes would not agree with this epithet. Nor do they deserve it, except in the sense that their way of life has changed little over the centuries. Indifferent though they are to Western technology, their philosophy and religion is both rich and complex. Outsiders who have lived with them, and learned to accept the simplicity of their lives, speak of them as a happy, fulfilled people whose attitude to the essential values of life dates back millennia.

VISITORS FROM SIRIUS

The Dogon do, however, make one astounding claim: that they were originally taught and civilisedby creatures from outer space specifically, from the star system Sirius, 8.7 light years away. And they back up this claim with what seems to be extraordinarily detailed knowledge of astronomy for such a primitive and isolated tribe. Notably, they know that Sirius, the brightest star in the sky, has a companion star, invisible to the naked eye, which is small, dense, and extremely heavy. This is perfectly accurate. But its existence was not even suspected by Western astronomers until the middle of the 19th century; and it was not described in detail until the 1920s, nor photographed (so dim is this star, known as Sirius B) until 1970. This curious astronomical fact forms the central tenet of Dogon mythology. It is enshrined in their most secret rituals, portrayed in sand drawings, built into their sacred architecture, and can be seen

in carvings and patterns woven into their blankets designs almost certainly dating back hundreds, if not thousands of years.

INTERPLANETARY CONNECTION

All in all, this has been held as the most persuasive evidence yet that Earth had, in its fairly recent past, an interplanetary connection a close encounter of the educational kind, one might say. The extent of Dogon knowledge has also been subjected to scrutiny, in order to establish whether all that they say is true, or whether their information may have come from an Earthbound source a passing missionary, say. So, how did we in the West come to know of the Dogon beliefs I There is just one basic source, fortunately very thorough. In 1931, two of Frances most respected anthropologists, Marcel Griaule and Germaine Dieterlen, decided to make the Dogon the subject of extended study....

Lies, Corruption and the Dirty Business of Vaccines Humans Are Free

This is my introduction to my new stunner book, Youre Next

This article arrives right after Robert DeNiro and RFK Jr held a press conference at the Press Club (Washington, DC). In it they offered $100,000 to anyone, including journalists, who can provide PROOF that thimerosal (ethylmercury preservative used in vaccines) is safe at the doses recommended and provided in the influenza vaccines.

CONSIDER THIS

Vaccines have been ordained safe as per the Institute of Medicines (IOM) report entitled Adverse Effects of Vaccines: Evidence and Causality (2012). In this report, the IOM concluded that there was no association or relation between vaccines and autism, or diabetes, or any other serious disorder. Do you think these conclusions were derived without an agenda?

Anti-Gravity Device Found On Easter Island? The Event Chronicle

Although academia would like you to believe, they possess a detailed, complete history regarding the construction of Easter island Just like any other seemingly impossible site found around the world, any explanation as to how, these supposedly documented events were indeed undertaken, remains absent.

We recently postulated that much of the ancient ruin that is Easter island, and perhaps the most impressive features, still to be found upon the island, are more than likely buried beneath past landslides, once caused by rapid deforestation.

And as predicted, with this realised, and archaeological excavations commenced, we soon knew just how deep this ancient sediment actually is, and as such, the controversial discoveries began to surface.

Not only are there ancient Moai statues, stretching into the hundreds of tons of weight dotting the island, but how these were moved into position, is knowledge lost to the Kassam of history.

However, although academia would like you to believe, that these tasks were completed within the last thousand years, the evidence of a past, advanced civilisation, actually having been responsible, is all over the island.

After shallow excavations were undertaken around an Ahu, one of the many ancient ceremonial platforms, the statues were mounted upon, polygonal masonry, uncannily similar to that found within Giza, Peru, Bolivia, and indeed all other, as yet, unexplained sites around the world, was indeed unearthed.

An additional piece of evidence, we feel may one day help to eventually unravel the mystery of not only eater island, but many other ancient sites around the world, is in its past title.

Once known as the navel of the world, it is interestingly one of many.

A number of other ancient sites, thanks to our own more modern ancestors, retained their ancient titles as navels.

Were these ancient civilisations, somehow able to tap into an mysterious energy grid, that can be found crises crossing our earth?

It is undeniable that many of the most ancient sites, found all over the planet, can be found located upon purported ancient energy lines.

Were these placements a mere coincidence?

Were they placed there for another reason??

Or were they indeed tapping into an energy field, which allowed them to shift such weights.
Te Pito o Te Henua, is an intriguing artefact that can be found upon the island.

With such an extremely well preserved, untouched history found upon the island, Te Pito o Te Henua, is still remembered as an artefact once used by past elders, used to summon something called Manna, which interestingly translates as Earth Energy.

These elders then inexplicably used this energy to float multi ton statues across the coastline, placing them in their final resting places.

Are all these connections, artefacts, and historical accounts, mere, coincidence?

Or are we truly on to somethin...

THIS is What You MUST Know about Electromagnetic Chambers Discovered INSIDE Great Pyramid of Giza The Event Chronicle

The evidence is OVERWHELMING that what we were taught in school about ancient human civilization, particularly about the Ancient Egyptians is FAR from accurate, specifically that, our true history was far older, and advanced than we ever thought possible

And the most recent scientific evidence further demonstrates that the Great Pyramid of Giza, Egypt WAS NOT a tomb built for the Pharaohs, but is literally a massive technological structure that is beyond our current understanding.

You may have seen the news articles that reported on a recent study Published in the Journal of Applied Physics, which was conducted by researchers and Physicists from Germany and Russia, which provided scientific data based on calculations which showed that the Great Pyramid can concentrate electromagnetic energy inside of its internal chambers as well as under its base and inside the subterranean chamber.
The significance of this discovery cannot be overstated, because we NOW have scientific data which supports that the Great Pyramid of Giza was a technological structure of some kind.

2,000-Year-Old Egyptian Mummy Workshop and Goldmine of Treasures Unearthed in Saqqara The Event Chronicle

By Ashley Cowie

A team of Egyptian-German Archeologists announced to the worlds media yesterday that their recent dig in Saqqara, Egypt, led to the unearthing of a rare mummification workshop containing mummies and sarcophagi. And among the buried treasures was a silver face mask gilded with gold dating back to between 664 BC and 404 BC, a press statement said.

Mummies have haunted popular culture since Howard Carters discovery of Tutankhamuns tomb in 1922, but early cinema had installed the whole idea of a mummys curse in the human psyche. Boris Karloff starred in the 1932 movie  The Mummy  and the 1999 movie  The Mummy  and its sequel  The Mummy Returns,  breathed air into the trend of giant mummies being controlled by tormented, vengeful spirits caught somewhere between life and death.

Mask of Precious Metals

Yesterday, Ramadan Badry Hussein, head of the Egyptian-German team, from the University of Tbingen in Germany told journalists at Live Science that the mummies mask had eyes containing calcite, obsidian and a black gemstone and he added that Very few masks of precious metal have been preserved to the present day, because the tombs of most ancient Egyptian dignitaries were looted in ancient times and that the finding of this mask could be called a sensation.

Mummy Workshop

The archaeologists first excavated a building made of mudbrick and limestone which they suspected was a mummification workshop as it contained bowls and measuring cups containing oils and named with other substances used for mummifying bodies. They found two large basins which they believe might have been used to dry mummies with natron and prepare bandages that would be used to wrap them, the statement said.

Declassified FBI Document Suggests Beings From Other Dimensions Have Visited Earth The Event Chronicle

The Facts: A declassified FBI document, one of many, contemplates beings from other worlds and dimensions, in a serious fashion.

Reflect On: Why so many credible research and researchers continue to bring forth evidence and have for decades, showing that we are not alone, and probably never were. Reflect on why so many people are curious about this, and why its no longer taboo.

By Arjun Walia

There are a number of fascinating documents that have been released by governments, military and intelligence agencies from all over the world, for many years. Recent and continual disclosure of the UFO phenomenon is continuing in the United States, and there seems to be a push from establishment media to cover the UFO issue in a more credible way.

Weve seen some serious articles written by people of great distinction publish a few articles in the New York Times, Washington Post and more.

The fact that the mainstream is pushing this now, and in the way they are, seems to be for a particular agenda. Many contemplate the desire of the global elite to spring a false flag alien invasion, it would be the same kind of idea as false flag terrorism, all for the purposes of justifying the growth of the military-industrial complex, and perhaps the intent to have an excuse to justify the weaponization of space. (Which has already happened according to some whistleblowers.)
That being said, there are many well-intentioned people on planet Earth, people who want the truth to come out about whats really going on. Once you go down the rabbit hole and explore these truths, there really is no going back because what is going on is so vast, so complex, and so compartmentalized that you realize there are multiple facets to this coverup that touches anything from politics to technology to consciousness. This is one of the biggest stories in human history up til now, and it leaves no aspect of humanity untouched.

We Are Not Alone.

We are not alone, and we are slowly being groomed to accept this, and no doubt some more examples will be next to follow.

This particular document from the FBI highlights a truth that not many people know about. Multiple academicians have been interested and even hired to investigate various aspects of the UFO phenomena. Be it propulsion systems, the intelligence behind the craft, or something else, this has been demonstrated time and time again by those within the field of academia who openly speak out, or, as shown by various de-classified documents.

The Life-Destroying Danger of Prosecutorial Misconduct Truthdig RSS

For most prison inmates, news that charges against them have been dismissed is cause for celebration.

Not so for Bobby Joe Maxwell.

Last week, a Superior Court judge in Los Angeles dismissed Maxwells case. The trouble is, after spending nearly 40 years in custody for two counts of first-degree murder, Maxwell cant appreciate his good fortune. In December, he suffered a massive heart attack and has been in a coma ever since. He is not expected to recover.

Maxwells prosecution is a story of justice delayed and justice denied, compounded by egregious official misconduct.

Now 68 years old, he was arrested in 1979 and charged with stabbing 10 homeless men to death in downtown Los Angeles. The local media at the time hyped him as a satanic serial killer, the Skid Row Stabber.

In all likelihood, he was neither, as I explained in a 2011 Truthdig column that profiled Maxwell and his appellate attorney, Verna Wefald of Pasadena. (Disclosure: Wefald is a friend and a former colleague from the California state public defenders office, where we worked together in the early 1990s.)

Maxwells trial was delayed until 1984 by legal motions, including an unusual dispute over the publicity rights to his life story that his lawyers had acquired as part of their retainer agreement. The dispute made it all the way to the California Supreme Court, which ultimately validated the agreement.

When the trial finally commenced, it lasted nine months and quickly became the stuff of L.A. noir, with daily news coverage of its every grisly twist and turn.

Back then, Los Angeles was a metropolis in fear, gripped by an unprecedented surge in the rate of violent crime. Centered in the poorest neighborhoods, the surge was fueled by an epidemic of crack cocaine use and trafficking, decades of neglect of the areas slums and the rise of such criminal gangs as the Bloods, the Crips and the Mexican mafia, among others. Even outside the inner-city war zones, people were on edge and looking to law enforcement for relief.

The Los Angeles Police Department originally arrested two other suspects for the 10 stabbings, but it eventually targeted Maxwell, who had moved to the city in 1977 from Tennessee with hopes of becoming a karate instructor. The martial arts career of the functionally illiterate Maxwell never got off the ground and, like the 10 victims, he fell into homelessness himself. For t...

Recent Supreme Court Ruling Gums Up Immigration Courts Truthdig RSS

LOS ANGELESImmigration courts from Boston to Los Angeles have been experiencing fallout from a recent U.S. Supreme Court decision that has caused some deportation orders to be tossed and cases thrown out, bringing more chaos to a system that was already besieged by ballooning dockets and lengthy backlogs.

The little-known ruling addressed what might seem like a narrow procedural issue over how to properly provide notices to immigrants to appear in court for deportation proceedings. But it is having broader implications in immigration courts that are in charge of deciding whether hundreds of thousands of people should be allowed to stay in the United States.

Since the decision was issued in June, immigration attorneys have been asking judges to throw out their clients cases. Some immigration judges have refused to issue deportation orders for immigrants. And in a recent case in Washington state, a Mexican farmworker had an indictment for illegally re-entering the country tossed out.

It isnt clear how many peoples immigration cases could be affected. Some immigration judges have denied attorneys requests, but others in states including Tennessee, New Jersey and California have granted them.

The potential consequences of the decision are massive, said Jeremy McKinney, an immigration attorney in Greensboro, North Carolina.

The Supreme Courts 8-1 decision focused on the case of a Brazilian handyman seeking to apply for a special green card given to immigrants who have been in the country at least 10 years, have good moral character and whose American relatives would suffer if they were deported.

Wescley Pereira came to the United States on a tourist visa from Brazil in 2000 and settled in Marthas Vineyard, Massachusetts, where he has two American-born children. In 2006, Pereira was arrested for operating a vehicle under the influence and given a notice to appear in immigration court, but it didnt include specifics about his hearing. More than a year later, a mailer with that information was sent to him but got returned as undeliverable, and an immigration judge ordered him deported when he didnt show up.

Pereira was pulled over in 2013 for driving without headlights on, and with the deportation order on his record, immigration authorities detained him.

By then, he had lived in the country long enough to seek a green card. But the U.S. government said Pereira could only count the time before he received the notice toward his green card aspirations.

The Supreme Court disagreed, saying a notice that doesnt list the time and place of a hearing isnt a notice under the law, and that Pereira was building up time in the country toward his application all the while. Without listing time and place, the Government cannot reasonably expect the noncitizen to appear for his removal proceedings, Ju...

Audio reveals creepy details of UFO mystery The Event Chronicle

By Ally Foster

In 1966, over 300 children and staff from a Melbourne school reportedly witnessed multiple UFOs silently flying through the sky before landing in a nearby field.

It is the largest mass UFO sighting in Australia, yet hardly anything was reported on it at the time.

Over the years, there have been differing reports about the details of what happened on April 6 at Westall High School, such as people claiming there were three saucerlike objects, while some thought there was just one.

In the 52 years since, there has been wide speculation about what people saw, with some believing it was an alien encounter and others pointing the finger at the government testing new technology.

Throughout all the years of speculation, however, one particularly interesting piece of audio has been greatly overlooked.

An American physicist known for his research into UFOs, Dr. James E. McDonald, conducted an interview with a science teacher from the Westall school, Andrew Greenwood, who witnessed the event.

He then recorded himself describing their meeting and the creepy details Mr. Greenwood gave about his experience. Greenwood told me the UFO was first brought to his attention by a hysterical child who ran into his classroom and told him theres a flying saucer outside, Dr. McDonald said.

He thought this child had become deranged or something so he didnt take any notice, but when the child insisted that this object was in the sky he decided to go out and have a look for himself.

When he went outside, he noticed a group of children looking toward the northeast area of the school grounds and as he approached them he claims he saw a UFO hovering close to the powerline.

Mr. Greenwood described it as a round, silver object about the size of a car with a metal rod sticking up in the air.

According to Dr. McDonald, the teacher then told him five planes came and surrounded the object as more people began gathering to watch the scene before them.

He called it the most amazing flying he had ever seen in his life, Dr. McDonald said.

The planes were doing everything possible to approach the object and he said how they all avoided collision he will never know.

Every time they got too close to the object it would slowly accelerate, then rapidly accelerate and then move away from them and stop. Then they would take off after it again and the same t...

The goal of propaganda is a population that will police itself... Signs of the Times

...or why the attacks on Jeremy Corbyn are not what they seem... Propaganda has reached its zenith when each member of the target population thinks the same; when they are afraid to think differently. At this point 'leadership' may commit whatever atrocities it sees fit...in the certainty that the population will either not 'see' it, or will view the expression of criticism as a more heinous crime than the act being observed. This is achieved through cementing a 'false equivalence' in the mind of the group. Such a false equivalence is being cemented in the UK right now - the idea that criticism of Israel's persecution of Palestinians is an act of anti-Semitism. The propagandist seeks to bend the 'group mind'. Thoughts and actions consistent with the 'narrative' are deemed to be socially acceptable & politically correct...ones that challenge it are regarded as socially UN-acceptable & politically IN-correct. Overtime this is reinforced through a dynamic that exists within every human grouping, and many species of mammal - fear of disapproval. Ergo, the propagandist is employing a form of 'crowd control'.

Evidence Suggests The Moon Isnt What We Think Someone Might Have Put It There The Event Chronicle

By Arjun Walia

  • The Facts:In 1962 Gordon MacDonald, a NASA scientist, published a paper stating its more like that the moon is hollow than not. MITs Sean C. Solomon furthered this statement citing knowledge of the moons gravitation field as evidence.
  • Reflect On:What do we truly know about the moon? Why is it that there is always such a great deal of evidence that challenges the mainstream truths about various things? Are we truly aware of the truth of the world around us?

It is not out of the question that artifacts of these visits still exist, or even that some kind of base is maintained (possibly automatically) within the solar system to provide continuity for successive expeditions. Because of weathering and the possibility of detection and interference by the inhabitants of the Earth, it would be preferable not to erect such a base on the Earths surface. The Moon seems one reasonable alternative. Forthcoming high resolution photographic reconnaissance of the Moon from space vehicles particularly of the back side might bear these possibilities in mind.

Carl Sagan (source)

Controversy has surrounded the Moon for a very long time, we have leaks, research and information from some very credible sources who have, over a span of decades, been relaying to the public that our Moon is not what we think it is, and that theres also some type of extraterrestrial presence on the Moon.

One example would be the testimony of Colonel Ross Dedrickson, who was responsible for maintaining the inventory of the nuclear weapon stockpile for the United States, he had a long stint with the US Atomic Energy Commission, you can view his obituary here.

Shortly before his passing, he told the world that the US tried to detonate atomic weapons on the Moon for scientific purposes, measurements and whatnot and that this project was halted by extraterrestrials, who would not allow us to detonate any nuclear weapons in space.  These were some interesting comments because he is one of the hundreds of high ranking military people who have alluded to such things, and we also have a declassified...

200 Years Ago, US President Thomas Jefferson Was Informed About a UFO Sighting The Event Chronicle

By Ivan Petricevic

The unidentified flying object was seen some 200 years ago. Apparently, it assumed the shape of a turtle and then that of a human skeleton ascending and descending rapidly, according to mail which was reprinted in 2010 in The Papers of Thomas Jefferson: Retirement Series.

Thomas Jefferson was an American Founding Father and the principal author of the Declaration of Independence. He served as the third president of the United States from 1801 to 1809, and he was a man who was informed about one of the first UFO sightings in the history of the United States.

More than 200 years ago, a mysterious UFO was witnessed by people in the United States.

It has now been revealed that a report about the UFO sighting was presented to former US President Thomas Jefferson.

This shouldnt come as a surprise.

In fact, hundreds if not thousands of years ago, people all over the globe have been witnessing strange, inexplicable things in our skies.

While some of these events were explainable like weather or astronomic phenomena, some sitting s have remained shrouded in mystery.

Now, in the midst of increasing UFO sightings across the globe, and in days where UFO disclosure seems to be near, it has been revealed that 200 years ago, former US president Thomas Jefferson read a report about a UFO signing which occurred in the early days of the United States.

in The Papers of Thomas Jefferson: Retirement Series reveals that a tavern keeper in Portsmouth, Virginia, and his friend had informed the former president about an unidentified flying object they saw hovering in the skies.

The UFO which resembled a meteor at first had the ability to shapeshift as the UFO attained the shape of a turtle as it hovered above the sky.

We the subscribers most earnestly solicit, that your honor will give us your opinion on the following extraordinary phenomenon. We saw in the South a Ball of fire full as large as the sun at Meridian which was frequently obscured within the space of ten minutes by a smoke emitted from its own body, but ultimately retained its brilliance, and form during that period, but with apparent agitation, wrote the eyewitnesses in a letter written to the president, Express.co.uk reports.

This report is considered one of the first UFO reports in the history of the United States.

However, it still remains a mystery whether the former president answered to the witness statement or not.

Interestingly, this was not the first mysterious object that was brought to the attention of Thomas Jefferson.

In 1804, a report mentioning an Unidentified Flying Object was written and submitted by naturalist William Dunbar, and communic...

The Dark World Of Secret Projects And Strange Experiments The Event Chronicle

By Marcus Lowth

Anyone in UFO or conspiracy circles will be aware of an ever-growing tide of secret projects and disturbing experiments connected to apparently unanswerable sections of the worlds intelligence services. And whats more, for the most part, these experiments take place on the population without their knowledge. At least those are some of the theories. And for a large proportion of them, there is growing evidence of their grim reality.

Many of these, worryingly or not, revolves around the MKUltra programs, mind control, and low-frequency programming and psycho electronic weapons. And while these notions sound bizarre and bordering on lunacy to many people, they are genuine operations, taking place in the shadows of the worlds governments. How far they go, and to what level control occurs is surely the real question.

In fact, it is perhaps the experiments and secret research into such notions as mind control that should worry us the most. As we have asked before, in this ultra-covert environment, how do we truly know our thoughts are our own? Before we move on to some of these secret operations, check out the short video below. It features just five such experiments performed in secret.

Bluebird And Artichoke  Initial Mind Control Programs

The immediate forerunner to the MKUltra mind control programs, not counting the research undertaken by scientists under the Third Reich in the early-1940s, were Projects Bluebird and Artichoke respectively. These were essentially the same project under a different name, likely for extra security reasons. By the time they morphed into MKUltra they were largely black budget programs of varying natures. We have written before of the work of Jose Delgado who looked to stimulate certain parts of the brain as an alternative to lobotomies. We also mentioned that his work was likely hijacked and used for purposes not intended by him.

It would appear at least some of those methods would morph into these initial mind control projects. Beginning in 1950, many of the...

Banks were warned that they could fall victim to an unlimited operation in which millions of dollars could be withdrawn from cash machines.

Smaller banks with less sophisticated security systems are thought to be most vulnerable to an attack using the jackpotting technique, the Daily Telegraph reports.

YouTube to Add Fact Check Propaganda Messages to MMR Vaccine Videos in Latest Orwellian Attempt to Override Reality The Daily Sheeple

Not content to stop at banning videos, YouTube has decided to add fact checks and quotes to videos on topics that it feels are controversial, and the MMR vaccine is one of them.

Last month, the video sharing platform started placing a blurb of text beneath certain videos offering viewers a scientific explanation. For example, the text placed underneath some videos about climate change is taken from a Wikipedia entry on global warming and reads: Multiple lines of scientific evidence shows that the climate system is warming. Theyre also questioning sources, with a series of climate videos posted by the RT news site containing a description from Wikipedia about the publisher that says: RT is funded in whole or in part by the Russian government.

The move comes after YouTube announced this spring that it will place descriptions taken from Encyclopedia Britannica and Wikipedia alongside videos about topics that tend to attract conspiracy theories, such as the Oklahoma City bombing and the moon landing. Although YouTube has not shared a full list of topics that will be given this treatment, some of the topics identified in a post to its administrators include global warming, Dulce Base, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the Kecksburg UFO incident, the 1980 Camarate air accident, and the MMR vaccine.

Man awarded $289 million after court found Roundup caused his cancer World News Echonetdaily

Dewayne Johnson in court. (Josh Edelson/Pool Photo via AP, File)

A California jury has awarded former school groundsman Dewayne Johnson $289 million for his terminal non-Hodgkins lymphoma.

The jury found, on all the scientific evidence uncovered during the month-long trial, that his exposure to Roundup (glyphosate) weedkiller caused Mr Johnsons cancer.

Roundup manufacturer Monsanto, the defendant in the case, has said it will appeal the ruling.

But if the jurys decision is upheld, thousands of other victims of Roundup are waiting to have their cases heard.

Another case already in the US courts alleges that adverts for Roundup falsely claimed the mixture does not impact human health but glyphosate residues harm human gut bacteria on which our health depends.

The UNs International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) found in 2015 that Roundups active ingredient glyphosate is a probable human carcinogen. But Monsanto sought to discredit the committees members and their findings about the worlds most used agricultural chemical.

Bob Phelps, the director of Australian anti-GM group Gene Ethics, said the Johnson judgement raises thorny questions for Australians too.

The Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) rejected IARCs findings and judged Roundup to be safe, if the label guide is followed. Yet Roundups label says nothing about safe use, health impacts, or the need for safety protection, Mr Phelps said.

After the IARC report, the insurance and work safe industries issued warnings that employers using Roundup, such as farm owners, local councils, LandCare etc. may be liable if the health of workers, volunteers or the public is affected. These organisations should now cease their weedkiller use or risk being sued for breach of care to workers and citizens.

There are safe alternatives to kill weeds.

Roundup is available from most hardware shops and supermarkets. Retailers should review their liability for selling an unsafe product and take it off their shelves.

Farmers, land managers, gardeners or citizens exposed to Roundup or its residues who now suffer non-Hodgkins lymphoma may also have a strong case for compensation.

Farm use of Roundup, especially as a pre-harvest crop spra...

Why young salmon leap Dear Kitty. Some blog

This 11 October 2012 video from North America says about itself:

Pacific Sockeye Salmon Oncorhynchus nerka

Fall is the time of the Sockeye Salmon as they return to the same river beds they originated from to spawn and die, finishing their life cycle.

The sockeye eggs hatch in winter and the young salmon make their way down to the sea, sometimes hundreds of kilometers away. In the ocean they grow, if they can evade their predators which include everything from birds when they are smaller to whales, seals and fishermen as they grow into a prized commercial and sport game fish.

Then 4 years into their short life they return to the rivers, retracing their journey just 4 years earlier back to the same riverbed where they started life, spawning and dying afterwards, the cycle of the Pacific Sockeye Salmon continues.

From Simon Fraser University in Canada:

Young salmon may leap to oust the louse

August 13, 2018

A study by Simon Fraser University aquatic ecologists Emma Atkinson and John Reynolds reveals that young salmon may jump out of water to remove sea lice.

Ideas about why fish leap include getting over obstacles during their upstream migration as adults, catching food and avoiding predators, says Atkinson.

However, these reasons may not apply to young salmon since their diet is composed almost exclusively of underwater zooplankton and their tendency is to scatter rather than leap when escaping from predators.

Atkinson hypothesized that the leaping behaviour could be the fishs way of removing parasitic sea lice, which is a common condition for wild and penned salmon off the B.C. [British Columbia] coast. Heavy sea-louse infestation is correlated with reduced growth, impaired swimming and competitive foraging ability for young salmon.

To test her hypothesis, Atkinson and her team caught wild juvenile sockeye salmon during their coastal migration away from the Fraser River. They held the fish in flow-through net-pen enclosures, half of which were covered with netting to prevent leaping and the other half were left uncovered to allow leaping. After...

NASA Has Been Covering Up the Truth About Life on Mars The Event Chronicle

By Isabelle Z.

NASA announced recently that it discovered organic molecules on Mars. In a press release, the agency said that the Curiosity rover discovered new evidence in rocks suggesting the planet may have supported ancient life, along with new evidence in the planets atmosphere related to the search to find current life on the planet.

The findings include organic molecules in sedimentary rocks that are billions of years old found near the planets surface, and they also discovered seasonal variations in atmospheric methane levels.

Although its being touted as a new discovery, Mike Adams says NASA had proof there was microbial life on Mars as far back as 1976, when the Viking mission found it with mass spec equipment.

On that occasion, Gilbert Levin, who was tasked with heading the missions life detection experiment, said that space probes found signs of life on Mars but it was covered up. The scientist has been critical of NASA ever since. He theorized that microorganisms may have made their way to Mars in a frozen and dried state after being injected into space from meteor strikes. Carl Sagan even reportedly congratulated this scientist on what many considered one of the greatest discoveries in science history, but it was quickly covered up.

In a video posted to the free speech platform REAL.video, Mike Adams talks about how NASA covered that up for political reasons, which begs the question of what else they might be covering up. He also talks about why carbon in the atmosphere is essential to life rather than the pollutant that the global warming camp would have you believe.

Adams believes that NASA preferred to slowly leak out the possibility of life on Mars discovered in the 1970s rather than catching the public off guard with the finding because they feared global chaos across various religions.

Organic molecules contain carbon, like the molecules in our body. Organic molecules are generally created by living organisms, such as plants. Adams points out that what they found were bigger molecules, which does support the idea that life is or was on Mars. All organic molecules can break down over time due to exposure to heat, radiation, and other conditions, which means what they found could, in theory, have been created fairly recently.

Israel Detaining Jewish Activists for Supporting Palestinian Rights Truthdig RSS

Facing backlash against its controversial nation-state bill, passed last month, Israel has detained Jewish writers and activists who oppose the laws definition of Israel as an entirely Jewish state, with no mention of the value of democracy or equal rights for Palestinians.

On Sunday, writer, professor and political commentator Peter Beinart was on vacation, traveling from Greece to attend a family bat mitzvah in Israel when he was detained by the Shin Bet, Israels security agency, at Ben Gurion Airport in Jerusalem, he reported Monday in an article for The Forward.

Beinarts was one of three such detentions at airports and border crossings in recent weeks.

Israel-born poet Moriel Rothman-Zecher arrived at Ben Gurion with his wife and infant daughter on July 29. Agents allowed his family through customs but detained him for approximately three hours, claiming his involvement in nonviolent protests was a slippery slope to violence against the state, and asking him for the names of pro-Palestinian and peace organizations and of fellow activists and friends.

Rothman-Zechner called the experience jarring and unpleasant but acknowledged how common and more abusive the situation is for countless Palestinians, and anyone else without his Israeli citizenship and white privilege.

He wondered how he would explain the incident to his daughter when she is older. Its painful to think about telling her one day, Hey kid, on our first visit to Israel, your aba [father] was detained at the border because he thinks Palestinians are human beings deserving of equality, he said.

A week after Rothman-Zechers detention, Simone Zimmerman, a founder of IfNotNow, an organization of young American Jews fighting Israels occupation of the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, was detained with a friend, Abigail Kirschenbaum, at the Taba Border Crossing between Israel and Egypt.

Neocon Bill Kristol Celebrates Social Media Purge The Daily Sheeple

Imagine my surprise.

Neocons are breaking out the champagne to celebrate the removal of Alex Jones from social media.

Jonathan Last, the editor of The Weekly Standard digital edition, after defending the removal of Jones, made an interesting comment:

The conservative view isnt just that communities have the right to create standardswe have always believed that there is wisdom and virtue in doing so. If we didnt, then wed be libertarians.

Poor ill-educated fool. Libertarianism is all about ethical standardsprimarily the ethic that one individual (or the state) doesnt have the right to use physical violence against another individual or a group of individuals.

Neocons dont subscribe to this. In fact, they believe violence is the preferred tool for dealing with stubborn and recalcitrant foreign leaders and regimes that reject the neoliberal economic order.

The cost for imposing this ordercheered on by Kristol and his co-conspiratorscost a million and a half human lives. Bill and his post-Trotskyite comrades declared this as a victory and urged the same treatment for Iran, Libya (mission accomplished), Syria (500,000 dead), Afghanistan (it is reported Trump is looking for a way out), and much of Africa where murderous Saudi Wahhabi inspired terrorists kill hundreds, including school children.

Imagine the shoe on the other foot. If Bill and his comrades were ejected from social media there would be a loud hue and cryand, of course, the accusation that social media is run by antisemites.

1 Out of Every 9 Children Have Serious Adverse Reactions To The DTaP Vaccine: New Statistics The Event Chronicle

By World Mercury Project

Until the 1990s, the vaccine administered to children for diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis protection was the DTP vaccine, one of the first combination vaccines ever licensed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). However, as a whole-cell vaccine (meaning that it contained the entire Bordetella pertussis organism rather than purified components), DTP had a significant downsideincluding published safety concerns dating back to the 1930s and widespread reports of neurological damage emanating from both the United States and other countries. By 1991, the Institute of Medicine cautiously reported that the evidence was consistent with a possible causal relation between DTP vaccine and acute encephalopathy [brain disease].

Characterized pertussis prevention as an unresolved problem, nothing the progressive increase in pertussis incidence after introduction of the acellular vaccines and the need for even more boosters

Nonetheless, on the safety front, health authorities have regularly praised the DTaP vaccines as offering a safer alternative than their whole-cell predecessors. Is this reputation for safety well-deserved? CDC researchers writing in June 2018 in Pediatrics seem to think sobut a closer reading of their...

Why We Are Unhappy And How We Resolve It TruthTheory


By Luke Miller,

Why We Are Unhappy And How We Resolve It

Many of us think of happiness as an elusive and unreachable place. Yet the map to both happiness and unhappiness is the same. This article shares why we are unhappy and the simple way you can resolve it.

When we wake up the decisions we make from that moment are the cause that creates the preceding effect, which makes up the rest of our day. This is the way it works on a smaller scale, however as time goes by these consistent causes become hardwired and the effect will start to dominate the cause and you can get stuck in this repetitive pattern.

We Are Our Memories 

Dr Joe Dispenza says that: 95% of who we are by the time we are 35 years old is a memorised set of behaviours, emotional reactions, unconscious habits, hardwired attitudes, beliefs and perceptions that function like a computer programme. Meaning that which we repeat becomes hardwired in our specific programme.

The memories of someone who repeats these patterns are created from a highly emotional experience. This triggers the same feeling again and again  When we are unhappy- we are often not unhappy about the current situation, but reliving an event.

Dr Joe says: If you allow that emotional reaction (called t...

Peter Strzok Tweets Link To $150,000 GoFundMe For Lost Income And Legal Fees The Daily Sheeple

Just-fired FBI agent Peter Strzok hopped on Twitter Monday with a statement from his lawyer and a link to a GoFundMe account set up by the Friends Of Special Agent Peter Strzok, which has already raised just under $30,000 in three hours after more than 700 people donated to the fundraiser. Jennifer Kay, a spokeswoman for Strzoks attorney, confirmed that the Twitter account was authentic according to the Daily Caller.

The page reads:

Eight Men Have Accused a Senior U.N. Adviser of Sexual Misconduct The Event Chronicle

By Rory Laverty and James Laporta

A senior adviser for the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women is under investigation for sexual misconduct. The U.N. has a job of work to do to reform its culture and restore trust, a U.N. spokesperson said.

At least eight men have accused Ravi Karkara, senior adviser to a former U.N. assistant secretary-general, of using his prestige and position to sexually harass them, five sources with knowledge of the investigation told Newsweek.

Karkara did not respond to multiple requests for comment this week and dating back to December 2017, when the U.N. announced a sexual misconduct investigation (without identifying the subject by name). No charges have been filed in the 13-month ongoing investigation. On July 26, a spokesperson for the United Nations entity, also known as U.N. Women, said that the probes subject remains on administrative leave and that, while still on U.N. payroll, the person is not currently performing any active function.

U.N. officials confirmed on August 1 that an investigation is ongoing but declined to comment on whether Karkara was the subject of the probe.

U.N. Women is the youngest division of the U.N., becoming a distinct branch in 2011. It sets global standards for seeking gender equality and then helps member countries turn those standards into laws, policies and programs.

Mandy Sanghera and Kerry Gibson, international human rights activists and U.N. Women Planet 50-50 Champions, told Newsweek the subject of the investigation is Karkara, who is currently on leave from U.N. Women. Gibson and an alleged victim filed complaints that started the investigation, while Sanghera learned of it through a former U.N. official and confirmed it with several alleged victims.

Two other former U.N. staffers with knowledge of the investigation confirmed that Karkara is the subject of the probe, as did one of his alleged victims whom U.N. investigators interviewed 13 months ago.

Sanghera called the senior adviser a predator. Speaking from her home in London, she said, Whats finally coming to light is a long pattern of inappropriate sexual behavior.

The U.N. Development Programmes Office of Audit and Investigation is running the investigation and will ultimately submit its report to the development programs Legal Support Office to determine whether disciplinary proceedings, administrative actions or a public reporting of findings are warranted. Even if he is charged locally in state or federal court, Karkara could avoid punishment if he has diplomatic immunity.

Sanghera, Gibson and an alleged victim, Steve Lee, said the sexual misconduct accusations against Karkara include touching or grabbing a subordinates genitals in a hotel room, using work devices to send...

From Simon Fraser University in Canada:

Sea stars critical to kelp forest resilience

August 13, 2018

A study by Simon Fraser University resource and environmental management researcher Jenn Burt reveals that sunflower sea stars play a critical role in the resilience of B.C. [British Columbia] s kelp forests, which are among the most productive ecosystems on Earth. Similar to land-based forests, kelp forests provide essential habitat for species and also help remove CO2 from the atmosphere.

Burt and her team discovered sea otters and sunflower stars are complementary predators of sea urchins, which inhabit rocky reefs and voraciously eat kelp. Without natural predators, sea urchins quickly devour entire kelp forests.

We showed that sea otters feed on large sea urchins, whereas the sunflower sea stars eat the small and medium-sized urchins that otters ignore, says Burt. We observed kelp density was highest at reefs with both sea otters and sunflower stars.

The researchers made this discovery after Sea Star Wasting Disease killed 96 per cent of the sunflower star biomass on the Central coast in 2015 and 2016. During this period there was a 311 per cent increase in small and medium-sized sea urchins, which corresponded to a 30 per cent decrease in kelp density.

SOTT FOCUS: Mediatized, Government-Approved, European Race Wars Signs of the Times

In the aftermath of Boris Johnson's "letterboxes and criminals" characterization of Muslim women who wear the burqa, and the calls for censorship of hate speech that resulted, supposedly level-headed social philosopher types have again made the point that censorship of such 'hate speech' will just push those opinions underground and embolden those that hold them. The correct response, indeed the solution to the problem (we're told) is not less speech but more speech; all opinions should be allowed so we can 'get them out there' and debate them and come to a sensible consensus. This line of argumentation assumes that if racists, and in particular Islamophobes, are allowed to have their say, not only will their arguments be easily exposed for the ignorant diatribes they are, but that it will quickly become clear to all that such people are in the extreme minority in the civilized West. In that way, the theory goes, these people will be effectively silenced without resorting to restricting free speech. But there's a problem.

Montenegro seeks arrest of ex-CIA officer accused of role in pro-Russian coup blogfactory

Government prosecutors in Montenegro, the youngest member of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, claim that a former officer of the United States Central Intelligence Agency helped pro-Russian plotters organize a coup in 2016. In October of that year, authorities in Montenegro accused nationalists from Russia and Serbia of staging a failed plot. Their goal was allegedly to kill the countrys then-Prime Minister Milo Dukanovi, spark a pro-Russian coup in the country, and prevent its entry into NATO. The allegations surfaced after 20 Serbians and Montenegrins were arrested in Montenegro for allegedly planning an armed coup. The arrests took place on election day, October 16, 2016, as Montenegrins were voting across the Balkan country of 650,000 people. The plotters had even hired a long-distance sharpshooter who was a professional killer for the task of killing ukanovi, according to Montenegrin police. After killing the prime minister, the plotters allegedly planned to storm the parliament and prompt a pro-Russian coup.

Russia has vehemently denied the allegations. But in March of last year, the then British foreign secretary Boris Johnson appeared to validatethe Montenegrin governments allegations. Since then, a sensational trial has been taking place in the Montenegrin capital Podgorica of the 20 men who were arrested in October 2016, in addition to two Russians who are being tried in absentia. During the trial, prosecutors fingered Joseph Assad, a former CIA officer, as a co-conspirator in the coup plot. The Egyptian-born Assad served as a counter-terrorism expert in the CIA after arriving in the US in 1990, but eventually left the agency to launch his own security firm. It is believed that at the time of the alleged coup plot, Assads firm was employed by Aron Shaviv, a political strategist connected with the Democratic Front, a vocal pro-Russian opposition party in Montenegro. Shaviv, who has joint British and Israeli citizenship, said he hired Assads firm to provide counter-surveillance against Montenegros security services. According to Shaviv, the Montenegrin authorities spied on him and harassed him because of his connections to a domestic political party that is seen as pro-Russian.

But prosecutors in the trial of the alleged coup plotters claim that Assads role was to organize and provide escape routes and methods for the coup plotters. In light of these allegations, a warrant has been issued for Assad, accusing him of operating a criminal enterprise,...

After 77 Years of Marriage, Sweet Elderly Couple Hold Hands As They Enter Heaven Together Awareness Act

Love really does last a lifetime for some. And while it sadly isnt common, I have seen a few elderly couples that I just knew had been through it all for decades without ever straying from their love.

I recently came across a story of a couple that passed away back in 2016 that really got me thinking. They had been married for almost 60 years and died on the same day. Their names were Don and Margaret Livengood. Don was 84 when he passed and Margaret was 80. While they did die just hours apart they had been holding hands all the while. According to the DailyMail, the hospital pulled strings so that the elderly couple could spend their last days in the same room side by side with one another.

Livengood Family

 

Livengood Family

 

I know, Im sure youre already crying, I sure was. Things like this really get me deep in my feelings. Margaret died while holding her husbands hand and he didnt last long after. They died holding hands in their shared hospital room. Don and Margarets daughter had moved back in with them just a year before their passing when they both had become sick.

According to their daughter, Don said as follows not long before his death:

When we get to heaven, we can walk in together, just like were getting married again. Another honeymoon,

Don had pulmonary fibrosis and bilateral pneumonia when he passed and his wife had cancer as well as several other serious health issues. While their story is sad the ending is quite amazing. They were able to spend every moment together from their first kiss to their last breaths in a sense. Far too often we take the people we really love for granted. These two really knew what mattered most. This was a bittersweet ending but also a new beginning for the two of them I am sure.

Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable.

Tesla car corporation handed to Saudi regime Dear Kitty. Some blog

This 8 August 2018 video says about itself:

Saudi Crown Prince MBS [Mohammed bin Salman] Invests $2B in Tesla, a billionaire Elon Musk company producing electric cars.

From Bloomberg in the USA:

Elon Musk Hands Teslas Wheel to Saudi Arabia

He just gave the huge oil producer dangerous leverage over his electric-car maker.

Oil interests have killed electric cars before.

By Liam Denning

13 August 2018 17:44 CEST

Six days into Tesla Inc.s tweetstorm, weve reached the valuation-by-semantics stage.

In a blog post Monday morning, CEO Elon Musk wrote he wanted to answer some questions about his surprise announcement last Tuesday regarding taking the company private. But like the boards belated we got this on Wednesday, Musks update lays nothing to rest and exposes a big risk.

First, the obvious: Why is the world still getting information about the most material of events for Tesla in a piecemeal mix of tweets and blogs rather than a detailed 8-K filing with the SEC?

The bigger issue is the one tackled in a section of Musks post titled Why did I say funding secured? Why indeed.

To summarize, Musk claims Saudi Arabias [governmental] sovereign wealth fund has approached him several times since early 2017 on the subject of taking Tesla private. At a meeting on July 31 of this year:

[T]he Managing Director of the fund expressed regret that I had not moved forward previously on a going private transaction with them, and he stro...

6 Phrases Manipulators Commonly Use to Make You Think Theyre Harmless Awareness Act

While most people dont notice how much of an impression words can really leave on a person, manipulators most definitely do. They use a lot of phrases with the intent of winning their victims over and that is something we all need to be aware of.

Manipulators come in all shapes and sizes but a lot of what they say is the same. Below I am going to go over some of the more common phrases they will use to try and win you over or keep you in their trance. These are phrases they know they can use to either disarm you or trap you into thinking they are seemingly harmless. Dont let their words make up for their mistakes and dont let them say one thing only to never follow through.

If you ever find yourself around someone who says these things but does the opposite dont let them play you for a fool. Cut contact, move forward, and stay away not everyone has the same intentions that you do. Just because youre a kind person doesnt mean that everyone else is. Actions speak louder than words, always remember that.

6 Phrases Manipulators Tend to Use to Make You Think Theyre Harmless:

1. Youre acting crazy!

They will call you crazy or stupid so that it makes you feel like you are the one who is in the wrong regardless of what it was he or she did. This is the manipulators means of disarming you and getting you to think that they have done nothing wrong after all. It makes you question whether or not you are overreacting about what it is you are going on about.

2. Im sorry.

They will apologize a lot but never really seem to make any changes. They dont let things really sink in. They feel like their apology in itself makes up for whatever they have done and never take the initiative to make things right.

3. Why do you overthink everything?

They will ask you why you overthink to make you question yourself. They want you to think that you are lashing out or going too far even when you arent. Chances are youre being pretty reasonable they just dont want to deal with the situation.

4. It wont happen again.

When they say it wont happen again and it happens six more times, why let them waste your time? They think that they can do whatever they want and brush it off when it upsets you. They dont care about your wellbeing.

5. Look what you caused!

They will act like youve caused the issue when all you did was address something that is going on. You are not always in the wrong and you need to be aware of this. They should not be blaming you for their wrong...

Censorship Is What Happens When Powerful People Get Scared Liberty Blitzkrieg

Only the weak hit the fly with a hammer.

- Bangambiki Habyarimana

Anyone who tells you the recent escalation of censorship by U.S. tech giants is merely a reflection of private companies making independent decisions is either lying or dangerously ignorant.

In the case of Facebook, the road from pseudo-platform to willing and enthusiastic tool of establishment power players is fairly straightforward. It really got going earlier this year when issues surrounding egregious privacy violations in the case of Cambridge Analytica (stuff that had been going on for years) could finally be linked to the Trump campaign.  It was at this point that powerful and nefarious forces spotted an opportunity to leverage the company's gigantic influence in distributing news and opinion for their own ends. Rather than hold executives to account and break up the company, the choice was made to commandeer and weaponize the platform. This is where we stand today.

Let's not whitewash history though. These tech companies have been compliant, out of control government snitches for a long time. Thanks to Edward Snowden, we're aware of the deep and longstanding cooperation between these lackeys and U.S. intelligence agencies in the realm of mass surveillance. As such, the most recent transformation of these companies into full fledged information gatekeepers should be seen in its proper context; merely as a dangerous continuation and expansion of an already entrenched reality.

BBC Bows to Pressure, Changes Gaza Headline IMMEDIATELY!!! The Event Chronicle

It is unusual for the BBC to publish a story about Israeli aggression using headlines that doesnt make excuses.

By Middle East Monitor

The BBC has once again come under sharp criticism over its coverage of violence perpetrated by Israel against the Palestinians. Critics called the BBC out over its bias after the broadcaster bowed to pressure from the Israeli Foreign Ministry and changed the headline of a news piece concerning Israeli air strikes on Gaza.

The BBC headline read: Israeli air strikes kill woman and baby for a news piece related to the killing of three Palestinians including a pregnant mother and toddler in Gaza on Wednesday night.

The headline attracted the attention of Israels Foreign Ministry and the Board of Deputies of British Jews, who is currently leading a bitter campaign against Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn over a definition of anti-Semitism that conflates criticism of Israel with racism against Jews.

Israels foreign ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon shot the BBC down and demanded for the headline to be changed IMMEDIATELY:

The Board of Deputies joined the act, denouncing the BBC headline as appalling. They said that they had lodged a complaint and encouraged others to do the same.

A short while after the complaints the BBC completely changed the headline: Gaza air strikes kill woman and child after rockets hit Israel.

The dramatic change in headline caught the attention of social media users who were astonished by BBCs capitulation to the dictates of a foreign state.

Israel is running a campaign against Jeremy Corbyn Signs of the Times

An app operated as part of an Israeli government propaganda campaign issued a "mission" for social media users to make comments against Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn, accusing him of anti-Semitism. This is the latest evidence of an Israeli campaign of psychological warfare against the UK's main opposition party. The Act.IL app on Sunday falsely accused Corbyn of comparing Israel to Nazi Germany in a 2010 meeting which had been resurfaced by The Times last week. The "mission" was documented in this Tweet by Michael Bueckert, a Canadian researcher who has been monitoring the app since last year. The reality is very different from the app's claims.

US State Department's new sanctions were timed to derail Senator Paul's diplomatic visit to Russia Signs of the Times

President Donald Trump's enemies helped launch new sanctions against Moscow that were timed to undermine US Senator Rand Paul's bid to mend relations during his trip to Russia this week, former Foreign Service Officer and adviser to Senate Republican leaders, Jim Jatras, told Sputnik. On Wednesday, the US State Department rolled out two rounds of anti-Russia sanctions over the Skripal affair. The first set will be implemented August 22 and the second round three months later unless Russia agrees to chemical weapons inspections. Russian Federation Council's Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Konstantin Kosachev on Thursday said the new US sanctions will harm bilateral relations just days after he agreed with Senator Rand Paul to send a delegation to Washington. On Wednesday, Paul said he delivered a letter from Trump to Russian President Vladimir Putin's administration about how the two countries could work together in many areas. "This baseless 'finding' by the State Department, with heavy pressure from [US] Congress, appears to be an attempt to blunt any possible progress towards better relations with Moscow stemming from Senator Rand Paul's visit and his delivery of Trump's letter to Putin," Jatras said on Thursday.

Defense Minister Liberman: All 168 Gazans killed by Israel after March 30 were Hamas members Signs of the Times

Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman on Monday said every Palestinian killed by Israel in the Gaza Strip in the past four and a half months was a member of the Hamas terrorist group, apparently including a number of women and children in his overview of the fatalities. The defense minister also said the next round of fighting with Hamas was a matter of "when," rather than "if." The current violence has largely subsided since Thursday under a de facto ceasefire agreement. "Since the start of the 'March of Return' events, Hamas has sustained 168 deaths, 4,348 injured and dozens of terror facilities destroyed," Liberman said, referring to a series of organized protests and clashes along the Gaza border. A spokesperson for the defense minister's office confirmed to The Times of Israel that Liberman's intention was to state that all 168 people killed were Hamas members. Comment: An incredulous statement that even The Times of Israel had to verify.

High Drama: Netanyahu deems 'Nation State Law' protests a threat to the existence of Israel Signs of the Times

Thousands of Jews and Israeli Arabs took to the streets of Tel Aviv Saturday shouting 'Equality' and 'Apartheid will not pass' in Arabic and Hebrew and waving Palestinian flags amid fears of discrimination on the basis of nationality following the passage of legislation declaring Israel to be a 'nation-state' and Hebrew its only official language. "Yesterday we received unequivocal evidence of defiance to the existence of the State of Israel and the necessity of the Nation-State Law," Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said at a cabinet meeting on Sunday. "We saw flags of the PLO [Palestinian Liberation Organization] in the heart of Tel Aviv. In the heart of Tel Aviv!" Netanyahu emphasized. "We heard slogans in Arabic including 'By blood and fire we will clear Palestine.'" "Many of the demonstrators want to repeal the Law of Return; they want to abolish the anthem and the flag, and turn Israel into a Palestinian state. It's clearer now more than ever that the Nation-State Law is needed to ensure the future of Israel as a Jewish State," Netanayhu said. Answering potential critics, Netanyahu added that "Israel is a Jewish and democratic state. The personal rights of citizens are protected perfectly well in the Basic Law and by other laws." Arab Israelis make up roughly a fifth of Israel's population of close to 9 million. Critics of the Nation State Law, which was enacted late last month by Israel's parliament, the Knesset, fear the law may lead to discrimination based on ethnicity and religion, and undermine Israel's status as a democratic state. Supporters of the law say it is largely a symbolic law enshrining the country's status as a Jewish state.

Ex-president Yanukovich's lawyer finds nothing criminal in Manafort's lobbying activities Signs of the Times

The trial in the US of Paul Manafort, a struggle to uncover 'Russian collusion', makes constant headlines. In Ukraine, however, the lobbyist has no cases or charges against him, ex-president Viktor Yanukovich's lawyer has told RT. Donald Trump's former presidential campaign manager Manafort has been investigated by FBI Special Counsel Robert Mueller's office as part of his grand probe into alleged 'Russian collusion' during the 2016 US election. So far, however, all accusations against him revolve around alleged laundering of more than $30 million in funds from undeclared lobbying activities in Ukraine. The political consultant had been reportedly working in the turbulent country between 2006 and 2015, helping not only deposed president Yanukovich and his Party of Regions, but also the current Ukrainian leader, Petro Poroshenko. "As an attorney, as a lawyer, I can say that the court will have to decide whether or not he is guilty. Only courts have that right - to determine guilt or innocence," attorney Vitaly Serdyuk said. "I can only hope that Paul Manafort will not fall victim to the political games surrounding the election of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump in the US," he added. The attorney stressed that the Ukrainian legal system has no questions for the lobbyist regarding his activities in the country.

Supreme Leader Khamenei: 'Iranian mismanagement worse than US sanctions' Signs of the Times

In a rare statement Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has lashed out at the country's authorities, accusing them of poorly handling internal issues. The mismanagement is even worse than US sanctions, he said. "It is not that the sanctions do not play a role; but a major part of the situation is the result of [government's own] actions," Khamenei said, according to Irna, as he was addressing thousands of Iranians in Tehran on Monday. The supreme leader added that if Tehran acted "better and stronger" itself US sanctions would have not been so harmful. The US reinstated certain economic sanctions against Iran last week, with President Trump promising more to come in November.

Russian counter-punch? Dump more US Treasuries against sanctions Signs of the Times

Moscow will continue selling off its holdings of US Treasury securities in response to the new penalties Washington is ready to introduce against Russia in the near future, according to Russia's Finance Minister Anton Siluanov. The minister added that the government will stick to the plan of moving away from the US dollar for international trade, as it recently proved to be a "risky" payment method. "I do not rule it out," Siluanov said in an interview with Rossiya 1 TV channel. "We have significantly reduced our investment in US assets. In fact, the dollar, which is considered to be the international currency, becomes a risky tool for payments." In 2010, Russia was among the top-10 holders of US debt at over $176 billion. With several rounds of US sanctions targeting Russia since 2014, Moscow began selling off its holdings to below $100 billion by October 2017. Over the recent months the Central Bank of Russia dumped 84 percent of its remaining holdings of US Treasury securities due to concerns about a wide range of risks, including financial, economic and geopolitical. The country's holdings declined from $96.1 billion in March to just $14.9 billion in May.

US envoy Johnson to UK: 'Back US on Iran sanctions or face serious consequences for business' Signs of the Times

In the latest threat to the US-UK special relationship, the US' top diplomat in Britain has called on London to back its pressure on Iran, warning of "serious consequences" for businesses who flaunt Washington's sanctions. Accusing Iran of "squandering its money on proxy wars and malign activities abroad," US Ambassador Woody Johnson's op-ed in the Sunday Telegraph asked the UK to "use its considerable diplomatic power and influence" to join the US "as a united front" in its effort to secure "a genuinely comprehensive agreement" on Iran ending its nuclear program. Reiterating a threat made by his boss, US President Donald Trump, on Tuesday, Johnson added that: "The President has been explicit: any businesses that put their commercial interests in Iran ahead of the global good will risk serious consequences for their trade with the US."

Economic Minister Altmaier: US can't force trade rules on others, Germany should invest more in Iran Signs of the Times

Washington cannot dictate trade rules to others, Germany's economy minister said, adding that his country should be more assertive and defy American sanctions - particularly by investing more in Iran. "We don't let Washington dictate [their will] on trade relations with other countries," German Economy Minister Peter Altmaier told Bild newspaper on Saturday. He said the US sanctions on Iran are one instance in which America's neglect of its partners are clearly shown. Therefore, Germany and other European countries should feel free to pursue improved relations with Tehran. "German businesses can continue to invest as much as they want in Iran," Altmaier said, adding, however, that "many companies depend on loans from banks, most of which refinance themselves in the US - and it creates problems." Altmaier's words come after the Trump administration imposed a second round of sanctions targeting Iran's purchase of US dollars, despite pleas from some world powers. Earlier this year, Washington slapped Tehran with sanctions aimed at curtailing trade as well as the energy and shipbuilding industries.

Cabal Closing Down Truth Tellers Paul Craig Roberts The Event Chronicle

By Greg Hunters USAWatchdog.com

Economic expert and journalist Dr. Paul Craig Roberts says the ideas of the elite are awful, and they want to suppress free speech to get their policies instituted. Dr. Roberts explains, The agendas of the elite are hidden. They are not something the American people would support. The elite are fearful that their cover stories are so thin that if truth can be shown on their agendas, they will be discredited. They will lose their abilities to impose their agendas. So, they are closing down truth tellers in order to maintain control over explanations. Alex Jones is a threat to the elites control over the explanations. . . . They are sending the message that says get onboard with the official explanations or we terminate you.

Dr. Roberts goes on to ask, Why is this possible? It is possible because the antitrust laws of the United States have not been enforced. These are all monopolies. Monopoly is against the law. Its against the Sherman Antitrust Act, but they dont enforce it because theyre so powerful. They just prevent the law being enforced. Plus, they have the neo-liberal economists saying that today you have to be a monopoly to compete globally. . . . Its a lie, but its a cover for having just a few people controlling information.

Dr. Roberts says big tech companies are too big to function fairly. Dr. Roberts explains, They should be broken up, or they should be nationalized or actually they should be arrested. . . . They are part of a plot. They are engaged in high treason against the government of the United States. If I was the Attorney General, I would have all of them arrested and put in solitary confinement awaiting trial. Thats where they belong. Thats where Google belongs along with Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Spotify, The New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC and NPR. They are all involved in a plot to overthrow the President. So, they would all be arrested and put in jail. . . . Why arent they? Well, Trump just doesnt have the power. They are stronger than he is. . . . There is not an ounce of integrity in the media.

Why is the mainstream media (MSM) and the Deep State fighting so hard against Trump? Dr. Roberts contends, All this started during the Presidential campaign when Trump started normalizing relations with Russia. It would be good for both of us, both countries. Thats when they cooked this up (Russian collusion with Trump campaign). They said, oh my gosh, we cant have that. All the money we wallow in, the excuse for it, will be gone. Thats the main factor here, and its a huge sum of money. So, they are going to fight to the death over it.

Infantilizing Black America Signs of the Times

In contemporary political discourse, black America often seems to be perceived as a monolith. We are expected to think, act, and vote as one, and any attempt to step outside the bounds of our pre-determined spectrum of thoughts can lead to summary excommunication. Our diversity pertains to our race, ethnicity, gender orientation, or sexual preference when set against the rest of the American population, but the diversity of opinions, beliefs, and values found among American blacks is seldom acknowledged. Even though the 'black community' in America includes immigrants from Africa, the Caribbean, and Latin America, as well as multiracial individuals and descendants of the slave trade, we are often grouped together as one large indistinguishable ideological bloc.

'More data, more profit': Google tracks location, your every move - even when you ask it not to Signs of the Times

If you've ever suspected that Google is watching your every move even when you explicitly tell it not to, a new investigation has vindicated your suspicions by proving just that. An investigation carried out by the Associated Press has found that Google is in fact storing Android and iPhone users' location data even when they have chosen privacy settings to prevent the company from doing so. Google claims that if you turn off the 'Location History' setting on your device, the company will not be able to store information about where you have been. The company states on its support page, that you can turn off Location History "at any time" and that, with the setting turned off, "the places you go are no longer stored." But that's not true, the AP report says, because some Google apps continue to store time-stamped location data even when the 'Location History' setting is switched off - without asking for permission. Some of the examples given by the AP include the Google Maps app, which takes a snapshot of your location as soon as you open it and even completely unrelated searches like "chocolate chip cookies" which "pinpoint your precise latitude and longitude" and save it to your Google account.

NASA working to cut dependence on Russia, hopes to still preserve 'unique' space cooperation Signs of the Times

NASA wants to maintain its unique cooperation with Russia to haul astronauts into space and continue to use RD-180 engines, while viable alternatives are being developed by US firms, the space agency's administrator said. "The United States of America is working really hard not to be dependent on the RD-180 engine," Jim Bridenstine said on C-Span. "So, do we want to be dependent? No! Do we want to have a partnership? Absolutely." For years, the United Launch Alliance (ULA) has been relying on Energomash RD-180 engines to power the Atlas V rocket. However, geopolitical tensions and sanctions introduced by the US against Russia has prompted calls by US politicians to consider replacement of the Russian-supplied technology. Until a viable alternative is produced, the US wants to preserve its cooperation with Russia. The 2018 US National Defense Authorization Act limits purchases of Russian rocket engines after December 31, 2022. But on Thursday, in response to the latest round of US sanctions, Russian lawmaker Sergey Ryabukhin warned that Moscow could consider cutting off supplies of the RD-180 before that deadline.

The Law As A Weapon The Daily Sheeple

Robert Mueller is supposed to be investigating Russiagate, which has been shown to be a hoax concocted by former CIA director John Brennan, former FBI director James Comey, and current deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. As Russiagate is a hoax, Mueller has not been able to produce a shred of evidence of the alleged Trump/Putin plot to hack Hillarys emails and influence the last presidential election.

With his investigation unable to produce any evidence of the alleged Russiagate, Mueller concluded that he had to direct attention away from the failed hoax by bringing some sort of case against someone, knowing that the incompetent and corrupt US media and insouciant public would assume that the case had something to do with Russiagate.

Mueller chose Paul Manafort as a target, hoping that faced with fighting false charges, Manafort would make a deal and make up some lies about Trump and Putin in exchange for the case against him being dropped. But Manafort stood his ground, forcing Mueller to go forward with a false case.

Manaforts career is involved with Republican political campaigns. He is charged with such crimes as paying for NY Yankee baseball tickets with offshore funds not declared to tax authorities and with attempting to get bank loans on the basis of misrepresentation of his financial condition. In the prosecutors case, Manafort doesnt have to have succeeded in getting a loan based on financial misrepresentation, only to be guilty of trying. Two of the people testifying against him have been paid off with dropped charges.

Muellers investigation is restricted to Russiagate. In other words, Mueller has no mandate to investigate or bring charges unrelated to Russiagate. In my opinion, Muller gets away with this only because the deputy Attorney General is in on the Russiagate plot against Trump. Mueller and Rosenstein know that they can count on the presstitutes to continue to deceive the public by presenting the Manafort trial as part of Russiagate.

The trial judge has twice criticized the prosecutors, asking them on one occasion if they had any evidence of successful fraud. In other words, the judge can tell the difference between actual fraud and a failed attempt at fraud, a distinction the prosecutors dont want the jury to consider.

However, prosecutors can frame a judge, just as they are trying to frame the presidents of the United States and Russia. Realizing that, the judge backed off.

What the Manafort trial should tell you is how utterly and totally corrupt the United States is. In my opinion there is nowhere an organization as corrupt as the US Dept of Justice (sic).

That Russiagate continues on its corrupt course should tell you how powe...

Lord Rothschild: The New World Order Is At Risk The Event Chronicle

By Zero Hedge

Over the past three years, an unexpected voice of caution has emerged from one of the most legendary families in finance: Lord Jacob Rothschild.

Readers may recall that as part of the RIT Capital Partners 2014 annual report commentary, the scion of Rothschild family warned that the geopolitical situation is most dangerous since WWII. One year later, Jacob Rothschild again warned about the outcome of what is surely the greatest experiment in monetary policy in the history of the world, and then again in August 2017 he cautioned that share prices have in many cases risen to unprecedented levels at a time when economic growth is by no means assured.

Little did he know that they were only going to keep rising, but related to that, he also made another warning which the market has so far blissfully ignored:

The period of monetary accommodation may well be coming to an end. Geopolitical problems remain widespread and are proving increasingly difficult to resolve.

Fast forward to today when in the latest half-year commentary from RIT Capital Partners, Lord Rothschild has made his latest warning to date, this time focusing on the global economic system that was established after WWII, and which he believes is now in jeopardy.

The billionaire banker pointed to the US-China trade war and the Eurozone crisis as the key problems putting economic order at risk, and the lack of a common approach a reference to the gradual unwind of globalization in the wake of President Trump that has made co-operation today much more difficult:

In 9/11 and in the 2008 financial crisis, the powers of the world worked together with a common approach. Co-operation today is proving much more difficult. This puts at risk the post-war economic and security order.

It wasnt clear if he was referring to the post-war fiat standard that emerged once FDR devalued the dollar relative to gold, and then fixed a price for the yellow metal, a tenuous link that was subsequently destroyed by Nixon who finally took the US off the gold standard, or the primacy of the dollar which emerged as the worlds reserve currency after the end of WWII, but whenever one of the people who profited handsomely from the post war world...

A new law introduced in the U.S. Congress seeks to clamp down on criticism of Israel at the expense of First Amendment rights.

As Israel continues to engage in gross human rights violations against Palestinians, Israel and its allies in U.S. Congress are trying to prevent [...]

Powerful magnetic field and auroras detected on Brown Dwarf 'star' 20 light years from Earth - Discovery defies (known) astrophysics Signs of the Times

A mysterious large object is floating around outside our solar system and researchers aren't sure exactly what it is - although it could be a rogue planet. In the first radio-telescope detection of a planetary-mass object beyond our solar system, astronomers have found the strange celestial body has 12.7 times the mass of Jupiter. It doesn't appear to orbit a parent star, however, and is only 20 light-years away from Earth. "This object is right at the boundary between a planet and a brown dwarf, or 'failed star,' and is giving us some surprises that can potentially help us understand magnetic processes on both stars and planets," study lead astronomer Melodie Kao said.

Israeli military says the regime has recently conducted war games using several divisions, including the infantry regiments, tanks and combat engineering units, in a move, which is apparently aimed at preparation for another war with the Lebanese resistance movement Hezbollah 12 years after the Israel's defeat in the 33-day military onslaught against Lebanon. "There has been incredible progress in our abilities. If you look at 150 kilometers around us, you will not find a brigade or corps as strong as these in their capabilities," the Jerusalem Post quoted Israeli military's Chief of Staff Gadi Eisenkot as claiming on Sunday. He added that divisions such as the 7th Armored Brigade as well the Golani Brigade were joined together as a unified force to field-test a new fighting method as part of a major reform meant to streamline the regime's military.

Beautiful Videos and Photographs to Remember Robin Williams By Awareness Act

It has been four years since Robin Williams took his own life. He had a very long and damning battle with depression and ultimately was not able to overcome it in the end.

The day Robin Williams died (August 11th, 2014) was one that really shook people all over. Without his beautiful soul, this planet just didnt feel right. He left us all feeling a little lost. The films he was in are still even now some of the most inspirational and smile bringing you will ever come across.

He was 63 years old when he took his own life and even in his last few years he wanted to bring a smile to the faces of all he came across. Most of us would have never imagined someone so upbeat and positive could have been facing such demons on the inside. That being said, depression was one of many things that seem to have contributed to him taking his own life.

Many newspapers always talk about how many people have died, but they never say how many people have lived.

To read more about his death and hear some of the things his wife had to say in regards, click here. This article is going to be all about remembering him and the amazing person he was. Williams is someone the whole world will be missing forever. He was in so many movies and had such an impact on the industry itself. He could make you laugh and make you cry without much effort.

Some of my favorite movies with him in them were Mrs. Doubtfire, Jumanji, Hook, What Dreams May Come, Flubber, and The Best of Times. He has a legacy that will go on until the end of time his death is one that hurt a lot of us as badly as if we had known him personally even if we did not. Below I am going to add a few photos and videos of Williams and I hope that you will as I have, take a moment to really put him on your mind.

How To Easily Detect Negative Energies In Your Home Awareness Act

The presence of positive and negative energy in the world around us can have a profound impact on our lives, either propelling us forward towards true happiness or tearing us down into a dark place. While there are many techniques capable of banishing negative and evil energies from our home, the first step is to detect their presence.

Arguably the hardest part of removing negative energy from your life is identifying where it is hiding out. If you have been feeling off including feelings of tension, confusion, depression or physical aches and pains, then you may be experiencing the effects of negative energy. This can come into our lives from a number of different sources, including the presence of this energy in our home or our workspace.

While there are great techniques to banish negativity, its a lot of work to do full cleansing rituals on every common space in our lives every single time we show signs of its presences. Furthermore, by the time we are showing side effects, is it not too late? Wouldnt it be better to detect this energy in its early stages, banishing it before it takes hold in our lives?

A video from spiritual healer and empath Mark Bajerski, founder of Pure Energy Healing, introduces an interesting concept a thermometer that you can place in your home that will detect whether a space is positively or negatively charged. The best part? This thermometer requires nothing but an ordinary lemon, making it cost effective and readily available to anyone who is interested.

In the video, Bajerski explains that lemons have a unique ability to pick up on the presence of negative energy. For this reason, simply placing an ordinary lemon in a room can act as a thermometer, reading the energy of the room and reflecting it for us to see. He explains that when a lemon is in a room full of good energy it retains its yellowish color as it slowly dries up, even showing a lemon that he states has been in his room for 10 years! Meanwhile, he explains, if there is negative energy in the room the lemon will begin to develop black dots or a fuzzy green effect.

By simply placing lemons in the various rooms of your home, Bajerski advises that you can discover where the negative energy is present, providing direction on which rooms will require your attention to banish this negativity. It would stand to reason, then, that this same technique could be applied to your office or workspace, or any other location that you frequent regularly.

These Are the Best Techniques For Cleansing Your Lungs of Tar And Nicotine Awareness Act

Whether youre an occasional smoker, or simply living in a city, complete with its increased level of air pollution, we put our lungs through a lot of abuse in todays society! While there are certainly some conditions that should be addressed by a healthcare professional, there are also a number of effective lung cleansing techniques that you can put into practice at home!

Its important to note, these arent treatment options if you are dealing with a serious health concern, such as lung cancer, COPD or any other respiratory ailment. However, natural and alternative medicine practitioners agree that the inclusion of certain foods, herbs and spices can actually work to cleanse your lungs from tar, nicotine, and pollution, helping to reduce long-term damage and prevent the development of diseases in the future. These are regular, easy to access items available in our local grocery store, an easy step for anyone looking to improve their health to implement today!

Try these 9 foods, effective in the promotion of better overall lung health:

#1 Onion

Among alternative health and natural health practitioners, onions are a well-known antibiotic. For this reason, they are used to treat a large number of disease and ailments, as well as included in many tonics, health drinks and meal plans for preventative measures. One particular ingredient, a flavonoid called Quercetin, has been found to reduce the risk of both lung and prostate cancer. Onions have also been credited with lowering your risk of heart disease and stroke, and red onions, in particular, are associated with a decreased risk of ovarian cancer.

#2 Apples

Another food source included on the list for its high levels of beneficial flavonoids, there may be some truth to the saying that an apple a day keeps the doctor away! Research has found that eating or more apples each week has been linked with slightly better lung function and higher lung capacity. These delicious fruits are also a source of Quercetin, along with antioxidants, vitamin C and so much more. If you are looking at altering your diet in any way specifically for the improvement of your health, apples are a great start.

#3 Legumes, Seeds, and Nuts

While we, as a society, have been led to believe that fats are bad, there are good fats that are highly beneficial in the optimal functioning of our heart, lungs and other major organs. Legumes, seed, and nuts are all a great source of essential fatty acids, as well as magnesium which is essential for the lungs to function at their best levels. Magnesium interacts with the calcium levels in the body, which is highly important as a magnesium deficiency,...

Google is Tracking You Even When Your Phones Location History is Off MintPress News

Android and iPhone users may be under the impression that Google is not tracking their location data if theyve turned off Location History on their devices.

After all, the Google support page says, With Location History off, the places you go are no longer stored.

But a new Associated Press investigation showed how that is not really the case. Some Google apps still automatically collect users location markersinformation it can use to benefit its advertising revenue. To wit:

Google stores a snapshot of where you are when you merely open its Maps app. Automatic daily weather updates on Android phones pinpoint roughly where you are. And some searches that have nothing to do with location, like chocolate chip cookies, or kids science kits, pinpoint your precise latitude and longitudeaccurate to the square footand save it to your Google account.

The problem lies with Web & App Activity setting, which is on by default, and stores a variety of information from Google apps and websites to your Google account. This information is stored under My Activity.

To illustrate the location data still collected when a users Location History is paused but the Web & App Activity setting is still on, AP displayed a map of locations visited by a Princeton postdoctoral researcher and Android user over a several-day period based on data that was still saved to his Google account.

Getting rid of those location markers, AP reported, is a painstaking process. Although users can find them at myactivity.google.com, theyre typically scattered under several different headers, many of which are unrelated to location, AP reported.

The new investigation comes a month after House Republicans sent a letter to Larry Page, the chief executive of Googles parent company, Alphabet, as well as Apple CEO Tim Cook, about their privacy practices, including location tracking.

If youre going to allow users to turn off something called Location History, then all the places where you maintain location history should be turned off, Jonathan Mayer, a Princeton computer scientist and former chief technologist for the Federal Communications Commissions enforcement bureau, told AP.  That seems like a pretty straightforward position to have.

White House Aide Stephen Miller Denounced by Uncle in Withering Essay Truthdig RSS

Trump administration officials have faced no shortage of critics in the mainstream media, but seldom have its criticisms come from members of their own families. (Strategist Kellyanne Conways husband, George, has repeatedly inveighed against the president but has, to date, spared his wife in his diatribes.) However, such is the fate of White House aide Stephen Miller, whose uncle has penned a withering indictment of his nephew and his sadistic immigration policy.

Let me tell a story about Stephen Miller and chain migration, begins David Glosser in Politico. It begins at the turn of the 20th century in a dirt-floor shack in the village of Antopol, a shtetl of subsistence farmers in what is now Belarus.

Glosser then proceeds to trace his familys history, from its persecution in Eastern Europe to its ascension in the United Statesfirst selling goods from a horse and wagon in the coal town of Johnstown, Pa., and generations later as the owners of a chain of supermarkets and discount department stores. The Glossers is a distinctly American story, replete with hardship and discrimination, but one that would have probably been impossible under the kinds of restrictions imposed by the Trump administration.

I have watched with dismay and increasing horror as my nephew, who is an educated man and well aware of his heritage, has become the architect of immigration policies that repudiate the very foundation of our familys life in this country, he writes. I shudder at the thought of what would have become of the Glossers had the same policies Stephen so coolly espousesthe travel ban, the radical decrease in refugees, the separation of children from their parents, and even talk of limiting citizenship for legal immigrantsbeen in effect when [my great-grandfather] Wolf-Leib made his desperate bid for freedom.

In one of the essays more annihilating passages, Glosser all but renounces his sisters son, questioning how he could align himself with a far right that sought his familys destruction less than a century ago.

The Glossers came to the U.S. just a few years before the fear and prejudice of the America First nativists of the day closed U.S. borders to Jewish refugees, he continues. Had Wolf-Leib waited, his family would likely have been murdered by the Nazis along with all but seven of the 2,000 Jews who remained in Antopol. I would encourage Stephen to ask himself if the chanting, torch-bearing Nazis of Charlottesville, whose support his boss seems to court so cavalierly, do not envision a similar fate for him.

Glosser is also careful to note the presidents own descendants fled torment in Europe for a better life in the United St...

Sales of Monsantos RoundUp weedkiller reviewed in UK after US ruling on cancer link The Event Chronicle

By RT News

Some of the UKs top DIY chains have put the popular weedkiller RoundUp under a safety review, after a landmark ruling in the US saw a man with terminal cancer successfully sue its manufacturer Monsanto.

Homebase, which has over 250 stores across the UK, said Saturday that they would review all of their products which contain the herbicide glyphosate. We have confirmed that we will be reviewing our range of weedkiller products, a spokesperson for the company said.

Another store, B&Q, said that they have been reviewing its weedkillers regularly since 2017.

We have a record of acting ahead of legislation where appropriate. We led the way in removing three pesticides in 2013 and neonicotinoids from our flowering plants in 2018.

We offer alternatives to glyphosates and are currently undertaking a broader review of all our garden products, a spokesman for B&Q said.

The announcements come after an American school groundskeeper, Dewayne Johnson, successfully sued the agrochemical giant Monsanto in a landmark case. Johnson says he developed non-Hodgkins lymphoma after using Monsantos RoundUp and Ranger Pro weedkillers for years.

A California state jury awarded Johnson $289 million (226m) in compensation on Friday after finding Monsanto had not adequately warned users of the herbicides risks. They also found company officials to have acted with malice and oppression in their selling of the product despite its risks being known.

Environmentalists have long spoken out against the threats posed by such products that include glyphosate with the UK Soil Association claiming that traces are often found in bread, according to the BBC.

Emma Hockridge, head of policy at the Soil Association, said the landmark ruling in the US highlighted the problem with relying on chemical pesticides globally as so little is known about the long-term environmental and health impacts.

Monsanto have insisted that their weedkiller products remain safe for users, with vice president Scott Partridge saying the company would appeal the verdict to vigorously defend this product.

Roundup has been safe for four decades and will continue to be safe. There is no credible scientific evidence that demonstrates otherwise, he told the Press Association after the ruling.

Farmers in the UK have also backed the continued use of the product. Guy Smith, vice-president of the National Farmers Union said the California ruling would do little to curb its use in UK.

Its most common use in UK farming is to kill weeds in the autumn be...

When speaking to Fox News' Shannon Beam, Gowdy said he has "lost patience" and they are ready to ask them hard-nosed questions to get to the bottom of this.

Russia slams new "draconian" sanctions, considers banning delivery of rocket engines to US Signs of the Times

A furious Russia condemned a new round of U.S. sanctions as "draconian" on Thursday and threatened to retaliate as news of the measures sent the ruble tumbling to two-year lows and sparked a wider asset sell-off over fears that Moscow was locked in a spiral of never-ending sanctions. "Such measures are absolutely unfriendly and can hardly be associated with the constructive - difficult but constructive - atmosphere at the last meeting of the two presidents," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on a conference call. As reported yesterday, in the latest diplomatic attack launched by Trump, the U.S. State Department said on Wednesday it would impose fresh sanctions by the month's end after determining that Moscow had used a nerve agent against a former Russian double agent, Sergei Skripal, and his daughter, Yulia, in Britain, something Moscow denies. The latest sanction announcement came just days after a bipartisan group of senators proposed a law mandating "crushing sanctions" - including on purchase of new sovereign debt and on big state banks - to punish Russia for election interference.
