GOP will hit FBI, DOJ with 'full arsenal of constitutional weapons' if they don't comply with subpoena, Gowdy warns Signs of the Times

House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy told Fox News Sunday that House Speaker Paul Ryan led a meeting Friday night with senior members of the DOJ and FBI, and made it clear that "there's going to be action on the floor of the House this week if FBI and DOJ do not comply with our subpoena request." The House Judiciary Committee has requested more than a million documents from the FBI and DOJ relating to the Hillary Clinton email probe, the firing of former top FBI official Andrew McCabe, and reported surveillance of a Trump aide during the 2016 presidential election. But Republicans have accused the DOJ and FBI of stonewalling and intentionally impeding their investigation, despite the agencies' claims that fulfilling the request requires a careful review of the sensitive documents.

Not Global Warming: Extreme weather in the US rapidly increasing in frequency and severity Signs of the Times

The last year has brought record-breaking natural disasters of all shapes and sizes to the U.S., from massive hurricanes in the Gulf to wildfires and flash-flooding in the Pacific. Though isolated in time and space, it would be an oversight to consider these events entirely unrelated. For years, climate scientists have been predicting more extreme weather as carbon emissions increase and global temperatures rise. And what we're seeing is exactly that, producing wreckage well beyond your every-few-years event. Let's have a look at the last 12 months. Comment: The climate is growing stranger and more extreme by the day, but it's not global warming and it's not caused by CO2: Cosmic Climate Change is Underway

Cancer is the second leading cause of death in children - why has the possible link between vaccination and pediatric cancer not been investigated? Signs of the Times

According to the American Cancer Society, after accidents, cancer is the second leading cause of death in children between the ages of one and four. Although pediatrics cancers account for less than one percent of all cancers diagnosed each year, the number of children diagnosed with cancer has been rising steadily over the last few decades.1 The National Cancer Institute (NCI) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) estimated that 10,270 new cases of pediatric cancers would be diagnosed in 2017 in children from birth to the age of 14. Approximately 1,190 of these children were expected to die as a result of cancer.2

See no evil: FBI fails to investigate devices of Hillary's inner circle because they didn't want to find incriminating evidence Signs of the Times

Thursday's report on the Hillary Clinton email investigation by Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz was, as Canadian pop-punk degenerates Sum 41 might have put it, "All killer, no filler." There were so many jaw-dropping moments of, "No, wait - FBI employees can't do that, can they?" that it transformed an actual government report into a veritable page-turner. Within all of that, some small moments of irony and significance were bound to get lost in the shuffle. It's perfectly easy to overlook minor gems in the report when you've got a new text message from Peter Strzok promising to "stop" Donald Trump and another FBI agent passing on information to Clinton campaign head John Podesta at the same time he was trying to get his son a job with the Clinton campaign. One of those minor gems, however, comes when you find out why the FBI didn't investigate the Blackberries and other email devices of Hillary Clinton's inner circle. I know what you're thinking. First, yes, apparently they still used Blackberries. I know they're secure and the government was among the last users of the superannuated mobile platform, but given Clinton's tendency toward antiquated technology, I'm halfway surprised her office computer wasn't a Commodore Amiga. ("Huma! Can you help me for a sec? My 2400 baud modem isn't connecting to State Department system.") Second, wait, the FBI didn't check the email devices of Clinton's inner circle? Why on earth wouldn't you do that, especially since they likely interacted with Hillary's server with great frequency - if, in fact, their email accounts weren't on it in the first place.

Sheets of rain: Austrian photographer creates stunning time-lapse of cloud dumping 'tsunami' over lake Signs of the Times

Mother Nature's beautiful and mysterious ways have been caught on camera by a professional photographer who has captured time-lapse footage of a powerful rainstorm over a lake in Austria. The video, titled 'Tsunami from Heaven' shows blue skies turning grey as rain clouds swoop in over Lake Millstatt in Carinthia, Austria. It doesn't take long to see why photographer Peter Maier gave the video its title, as the downpour of the rainstorm does indeed look like a tsunami coming from the heavens.

Tesla vehicle catches fire 'out of the blue' in California traffic Signs of the Times

A Tesla vehicle caught fire, apparently "out of the blue," while sitting in California traffic. Video of the incident has been shared by US actress Mary McCormack whose husband was in the electric car at the time. McCormack said her husband was in traffic on Santa Monica Boulevard when the vehicle suddenly caught fire. There was "no accident" and the blaze came completely "out of the blue," she said. Passersby flagged down the driver who then got out of the vehicle. Video recorded at the scene shows flames shooting from underneath the parked car. The electric car did not have an autopilot feature and was a "normal Tesla,"according to McCormack.

Changing atmosphere: Footage of Russian rocket flyover lights up social media Signs of the Times

A scheduled launch of Russia's Soyuz rocket with a satellite aboard turned into quite an event in Russia after pictures of it heading into space baffled the whole country. People across Russia took to social media to post dazzling pictures and videos featuring a mysterious object flying over them in the night to Sunday. Searching for an explanation, some said it could have been a UFO. Others said the white oval object leaving a massive trail could be a sign that Russia's state of the art ICBM Topol-M had been launched. However, alien-seekers were left disappointed, as it turned out to be a Russian Soyuz 2.1-b rocket, which was launched at 12:46am Moscow time (21:46 GMT) from the Plesetsk test launch site. Several hours later, the carrier rocket's Fregat booster put the Glonass-M navigational satellite into orbit. The satellite will join the group of Russia's Global Navigation Satellite System (GLONASS), which currently has a total of 25 objects, one of which is currently undergoing flight tests.

Wave of amputations in Gaza shows Israel shoots to maim for life, but sometimes also kill Signs of the Times

Baha Abu Ayash winced as a nurse unraveled the bandage around his right ankle. There was a whiff of rotting meat as a gaping bullet wound came into view. A doctor pinched his toes. They were black and cold. For six days, the 23-year-old and his family had held out hope that his foot might be saved, if only he could be evacuated from the Gaza Strip. But it was too late now, the doctor from Jordan told them. Even if Israel agreed to the transfer, the decision would be the same. "This patient needs a life-saving amputation," the doctor said. "Gangrene has set in. ... It is very critical." Still, the family hesitated. Nobody in the family had steady work. Who would support the young man if his foot or leg were removed? "It's not an easy decision," said Mohammed Abu Ayash, one of his 12 siblings. The toll of violence during two months of protests along the Gaza Strip's border with Israel is most often measured in deaths: at least 123 Palestinians killed by Israeli gunfire.

Theresa May faces Parliamentary rebellion for amendment effectively nullifying Brexit Signs of the Times

The battle between Theresa May's government, Brexit supporters, and EU loyalists in the House of Commons has reignited, with the Prime Minister walking back on an agreement to appease Remainer rebels on the EU Withdrawal Bill. Mrs May was previously reported to have made a series of concessions to Tory rebels loyal to the European Union, agreeing to allow the Remainer-dominated Parliament to have a so-called 'meaningful vote' on the terms of Britain's exit from the EU - which Leave supporters decried as an effective veto on Brexit. Brexit supporters on the 1922 Committee - made up of Tory MPs who do not hold Government positions - were swift to react once the implications of these concessions became clear, with one senior Leaver remarking: "If Theresa and [Chief Whip Julian Smith] have sold us out here they are in real trouble. She reassured us all at the 1922. There is no way she can recover if she has now f*cked us over."

Former cop who solicited child sex retires with full benefits Signs of the Times

A former police lieutenant could be facing a new trial after he was given probation for sending lewd messages and attempting to have sex with a child, and then allowed to quietly retire on taxpayer-funded medical disability. Former California Highway Patrol lieutenant Stephen Robert Deck was given probation for attempting to have sex with a 13-year-old in 2006. The officer was caught in an undercover sting operation set up by police to catch pedophiles in the act of trying to have sex with kids. Unlike most of the other 12 defendants in the case, who were sentenced to at least one year in prison, Deck was afforded probation simply because he wore a badge. His attorneys fought his conviction for years, losing twice in appeals, but Deck eventually was granted a mistrial on a technicality. Now, instead of simply allowing the years-old case to go by the wayside, the Orange County District Attorney's Office is preparing for a possible new trial with hearings scheduled on July 16th. The Orange County Weekly described how the officer was able to have his conviction overturned in 2014: In 2014, however, the Ninth Circuit overturned the conviction for an attempted lewd act upon a child. A non-unanimous panel of judges ruled that Mestman (prosecutor) erred in his closing statement on a technicality about when Deck, who worked at CHP's San Clemente office, intended to commit a lewd act on Amy.

People with BIID feel urge to maim themselves to feel 'normal' Signs of the Times

Forget extreme plastic surgery, tattoos and piercings - a minority are taking body modification to the next level - by voluntarily cutting off their own limbs. A body modifier has exclusively revealed how his "extra" limbs feel alien, and has resorted to the drastic measure of self-mutilation - because he actually want to be disabled. Dr. Michael First, a professor of psychiatry at Columbia University, has led investigations into this bizarre and extremely rare psychiatric condition which he is calling body integrity identity disorder (BIID). Also known as amputee identity disorder, it gives people a fierce desire to rid themselves of perfectly healthy limbs. Comment: Warning: More disturbing images below.

'I wasn't dying today:' Grandmother kills rabid bobcat with her bare hands Signs of the Times

A grandmother in Georgia says she simply refused to give up and die when suddenly attacked by a rabies-stricken bobcat in her front yard, instead battling the creature to the death with her bare hands. DeDe Phillips was working outside her home in rural Hart County when the large feline suddenly struck. "I thought, 'not today'. There was no way I was going to die," she toldthe Athens Banner-Herald, explaining that adrenaline kicked in when she was suddenly thrust into the life-and-death struggle. The daughter-in-law of a bobcat trapper, Phillips knew what she had to do to protect herself, and grabbed the creature's throat, tackling it to the ground and eventually strangling it. She didn't call out for help until she thought the big cat was dead as she didn't want her young granddaughter to venture out into the vicinity of the wildcat.

Parkland school guard who ignored shooter investigated for harassing female students Signs of the Times

As we reported extensively in the aftermath of the Parkland school shooting in February, law enforcement failed on multiple levels that day, fumbling numerous opportunities to intervene in the attack. Now, months later it has been revealed that the first line of defense in the shooting, a guard for the school named Andrew Medina, was unfit for his position and should not have been trusted with the lives of children. Medina has been criticized for not taking proper action during the attack, and many critics say that if he did take action, he could have saved many lives. This week, new details have emerged about Medina's past at the school which gives an ugly glimpse into his character. According to the family of Meadow Pollack, a young girl who died in the shooting, 39-year-old Andrew Medina harassed a number of girls at the school, including Meadow. Medina was reported on two separate occasions, but no action was ever taken against him, despite the seriousness of the allegations and the fact that there were multiple reports. According to records obtained by the Sun Sentinel, Medina propositioned one student and made a lewd comment to another in February 2017, a year before the attack. "Both students became so uncomfortable with Mr. Medina's comments and actions, they sought out different routes to their classes in an attempt to avoid him," the report said.

Happy Feet: Improving foot core stability emerges as latest fitness target Signs of the Times

For years, our core muscles have been the focus of workout attention. For those who have failed to find them, these are the muscles that wrap around our middles like a corset and, through workouts aimed at engaging even the most deeply embedded of them, we have been promised better posture, flatter stomachs and more supple movement. Now there's a new core workout that promises all of these gains and more. And what's surprising is that the core muscles being targeted are not to be found in your trunk, but in your feet. Improving foot core stability is the latest fitness target among those preoccupied with avoiding rounded shoulders and back pain. Last month, it was a focus of the podiatry and orthotics lectures at the Primary Care and Public Health conference in Britain.

Ex-Minister: 'Bullying culture' one of many reasons why UK is leaving EU Signs of the Times

A heated debate on British television raised questions over the EU's aggressive negotiating tactics and unwillingness to listen. Ex-Cabinet Minister and MP Michael Portillo criticized the European Union's (EU) "bullying culture" during a debate on the BBC's This Week show, in which he locked horns with British Philosopher AC Grayling "I was in this studio before the referendum, and I kept saying 'you see if the referendum goes the way the establishment doesn't want it they will soon be back saying there ought to be another referendum, which they have done to every other European country'. It's part of the bullying culture of the European Union," he said as quoted by The Express. "If people defy what the establishment wants to do, they have to be bullied, they have to be punished, they have to be threatened."

Saudis, U.S. Ignore Famine Warning in Besieged Yemen Truthdig RSS

Ignoring international aid groups warnings that an attack on the Yemeni city of Hodeida, which is held by Houthi rebels, could exacerbate hunger in an impoverished and war-torn nation already on the brink of famine, Saudi-led U.S.-backed coalition forces continued a sweeping assault on the Red Sea port city Saturday, reportedly seizing control of an airport.

Since the fighting started earlier this week, thousands of Hodeidas 600,000 civilians have evacuated and hundreds of people have been killed. The port city is the main conduit through which about 70 percent of international aid reaches Yemenis, many of whom are battling starvation and outbreaks of infectious diseases such as cholera.

The Norwegian Refugee Councils office in Yemen told Reuters that humanitarian agencies cannot currently access areas south of the city where people are most likely to have been injured, affected, and displaced, leaving us without a clear picture of needs.

The lack of humanitarian assistance, following suspension of aid programs and with limited NGO staff on the ground while a military offensive is ongoing, will have severe consequences on a region already facing restrictions on the import and internal transportation of vital supplies, including medicines, food, and fuel, Frederic Pelat, head of Mdecins Sans Frontires mission in Yemen, warned Thursday. Yemenis living in the northern parts of the country depend on vital supplies that pass through Hodeidas port.

Japanese top diplomat: US puts forward 47-point list of demands to Pyongyang Signs of the Times

"If the demand for full denuclearization is not carried out in this form, sanctions against North Korea will not be lifted," the Japanese top diplomat said. The United States has filed a list of 47 demands that North Korea should fulfill to achieve total elimination of its nuclear arsenal, other weapons of mass destruction and relevant infrastructure, Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono said in an interview aired by national broadcaster NHK on Sunday. "The supreme leader of North Korea agreed to full denuclearization. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said during his visit to Pyongyang that, according to the United States, this notion includes elimination - in the transparent and irreversible form - of the nuclear stockpile and other types of weapons of mass destruction, including chemical and biological ones, as well as missiles and all relevant infrastructure," he said. "In this regard, a list of 47 demands was submitted to North Korea. If the demand for full denuclearization is not carried out in this form, sanctions against North Korea will not be lifted. I think they [North Korea] understand this," the Japanese top diplomat said. He added that the demand includes elimination of all North Korean missiles, including those posing a threat to Japan.

The US Government's Torture of Children Operation Disclosure

Torture of Children by the US Government

US Government Torture of Children

Judy Note: Some of the below links dont work. I left them in to show how pervasive a cover-up has become on the US government torture of children paid out of our taxpayer dollars.

An FBI Case Agent discovered an email from Hillary Clinton (page 324 of the just released IG Report) that referenced child trafficking, but was told, We cant be looking at this.

Evidently the IG Report found thousands of emails on Anthony Weiners laptop concerning the Clinton Foundation and Crimes Against Children that have yet to find the mainstream media.

Over a year ago a Child Trafficking Scandal Tucson-Gate was suspected to have linked child trafficking to the Clintons, Tucson Arizona Mayor Jonathan Rothschild and Casa de Los Ninos childrens shelter.

Government sponsored torture and abuse of children appeared to be pervasive. On June 16 Kristine Guerra of The Washington Post discussed little girl no older than 2 taken from her mother the night before and brought to a shelter run by the Office of Refugee Resettlement along the Texas border. She was screaming and pounding her fists on a mat, though staff werent allowed to console her. That was the rule. Theyre not allowed to touch the children.

Nearly 2,000 immigrant children were separated from their parents during six weeks in April and May, according to the Department of Homeland Security. Any adult who crosses the border illegally faced criminal prosecution while their children were sent to shelters. The boys were known to be held behind bars in Walmart-converted warehouses. There was little or no accounting for teen girls thought kidnapped into an international child trafficking and gun running ring run by global elites, funded by the CIA and organized out of an office at the Vatican.

US acts as World's police making others comply with its national laws Signs of the Times

An anti-doping bill was introduced to Congress on June 12 to make the use or distributing drugs during international sports events a punishable crime. The act offers fines of up to $250,000 for individuals and prison sentences of up to 10 years for those who make, distribute or use banned substances at sports events including four or more US athletes and other athletes from three or more countries. Whistleblowers that expose doping schemes will also be protected under the act. When the legislation goes into effect, any wrongdoer will be able to say he's unfairly persecuted in his own country for exposing doping-related activities to get American protection from justice at home. And athletes from different countries will have to prove their innocence in US, not national or international, courts. Inevitably, there'll be problems with proof making US prosecutors politicized and enjoy extended authority to get the evidence they could go upon.

Kilaeua: Lava covers more than 9 miles of island, M5.4 quake reported Signs of the Times

Since lava broke to the surface, it has overrun 5,914 acres of land, or roughly nine and a quarter square miles. The total number of homes destroyed stands at 467. Seismic activity is on an almost predictable cycle after another strong earthquake Saturday morning. A large explosion happened just after 10:20 a.m. at the summit of Kilauea. Officials say it had the energy of a 5.3 magnitude earthquake. No tsunami was generated. Air quality remains an issue as gasses and ash clog the air. USGS reports that the eruption from the lower East Rift Zone remains steady in Leilani Estates with few changes taking place over the past few days. On Saturday, lava fountains from fissure no. 8 reached heights of about 170 feet into the air. With the fast-moving flow, it was a similar scene all week.

'As crimes pile up, they become invisible': Western complicity in Saudi Arabia's dirty war in Yemen Signs of the Times

The complicity of Western governments in the ocean of suffering being wrought in Yemen exposes them as agents of Saudi brutality. After three years of relentless conflict, it has been estimated that out of a population of 27.4 million, 22.2 million people in Yemen are in need of humanitarian assistance, 17 million are food insecure, 14.8 million lack basic healthcare, 4.5 million children are suffering malnourishment, while 2.9 million people are internally displaced. As for dead and injured, the toll stands at almost 10,000 and 50,000 respectively. As a result of the conflict, the country is also facing the "largest documented cholera epidemic of modern times." And this epidemic can only have been intensified by the Saudi bombing of a cholera treatment center in the west of the country, causing the French NGO Mdecins Sans Frontires to halt their work at the facility.

From the Jewish Telegraph Agency, 17 June 2018:

Former CIA Chief Compares U.S. Immigration Policies To Nazi Germany

Former head of the Central Intelligence Agency and National Security Agency Michael Hayden compared the Trump administrations immigration policies to Nazi Germany.

In a tweet posted on Saturday, Hayden wrote: Other governments have separated mothers and children, under a black and white photo of the front of Auschwitz as seen from the railroad tracks approaching the former Nazi camp.

The tweet is a response to reports that under the U.S. governments so-called zero tolerance policy against illegal migrants nearly 2,000 children have been separated from their parents or adult guardians after entering the United States.

White House policy advisor Stephen Miller was instrumental in convincing President Trump to enact his zero-tolerance border policies that have led to immigrant children being separated from their parents, The New York Times reported Saturday: here.

Shadow Super Exopolitical Intel Report -- June 15-16, 2018 Operation Disclosure

Shadow Super Intel Report

June 15, 2018

Submitted to Operation Disclosure | By ShadowSuper

Trillions and trillions of years ago in the long forgotten past, the giant jelly fish-type entities know as the Miraders (the greatest of all extraterrestrial alien civilizations ) were the first ultra super mega genius flesh and blood species to rise from the absolute darkness of the great nothingness.

The Miraders developed highly and massively godlike computer minds in the manner of brilliant robot machines, which could create even much, much greater artificial constructs as the evolution of intelligence exploded completely out of control. Eventually, Mirader could monitor, record and control every microscopic particle on their planet and in their local star system.

Over the space of 7000 trillion years the Mirader Empire developed sophisticated ways to cheat death. And become immortal.

They developed the technology to get a glimpse of the past and even some of the future. However, this is a very imprecise power because it takes an infinite amount of power to travel in time. The further backwards or forward in time the more power it takes.


The Cabal want the Mirader's technology to achieve immortality themselves and a safe space on the Mirader's home planet.. this is one of the reasons they are panicking in Ireland.

The alliance are meeting in Glengariff in west cork to discuss the amount of Mirader transportation attempts by the Cabal.

Oxfam accuses French police of abuse and detention of migrant children at border Signs of the Times

French police are abusing and illegally detaining migrant children who attempt to cross the border from Italy, UK-based humanitarian group Oxfam said. Many intercepted minors have even been left unable to contact their families. Some 16,500 refugees and migrants are stuck near the small Italian town of Ventimiglia, 7km from the French border, Oxfam's new report, 'Nowhere but out,' calculates. One quarter of these people are children, mostly from Sudan, Eritrea and Afghanistan. The majority of these minors are between 15 and 17, but some are much younger, the group claims. Comment: This is tricky since it has been shown time and again that some migrants claim to be much younger than they really are. Since French authorities tightened border controls with Italy back in 2015, it has been hard for asylum seekers to enter the country. Hundreds of them are forced to "sleep rough under a [motorway] flyover" with no access to drinkable water, shelter or heating on the French-Italian border.

Demise of Dinosaurs May Serve as a Guide to Today Truthdig RSS

U.S. geologists have identified the moment of the dinosaurs death in the Earths deep past as the time when the climate changed, even faster and more severely than it is changing as a consequence of human action.

That fateful moment occurred on the day around 65 million years ago when a vast comet or asteroid smashed into Earth over what is now Chicxulub in the Yucatan peninsula of Mexico and brought the Cretaceous era to a close.

The scientists used tiny bits of fish scales, teeth and bones to compose a temperature chart for the last 50,000 years of the Cretaceous, and the first 100,000 years of the Palaeogene, when planet Earth changed forever.

The planetary average temperatures rose around 5C [9 F] and stayed perilously hotter for at least another 100,000 years, and in the course of this the last dinosaurs disappeared, as if violently wiped out in one short episode.

Theorists predict that an impact with something 10kms [6 miles] or so across arriving at a minimum of 20 kms a second would have delivered a ferocious blast of heat, a huge ejection of rock and dust into the upper atmosphere, a darkening of the skies, an all-year-round winter that might have endured for a decade, and then dramatic warming as the air filled with carbon dioxide from blazing forests around the planet.

The researchers report in the journal Science that they see this fateful celestial traffic accident as an unusually relevant natural experiment to compare to modern climatic and environmental changes.

The evidence comes from a series of shallow marine marls deposited 65 million years ago in what is now Tunisia: these strata contain fragments of fish, and the phosphate compounds in the hard fragments contain oxygen isotopes that in turn can answer questions about the atmospheric temperatures at the time the ancient fish swam in ancient oceans.

And in this series of sediments is a thin red layer rich in the kind of evidence to be expected from a colossal impact with an interplanetary fireball.

No Abrupt Cooling

What the scientists did not find was evidence of a sudden, brief dramatic cooling, but they didnt expect to. But they did find, they say, evidence that matches expectations for impact-initiated greenhouse warming.

The impact probably extinguished three fourths of all life on Earth. As so often happens in research, a second, almost simultaneous study in a different publication of a different series of geological sediments in North Dakota in the US  yielded more details about the Cretaceous calamity.

Anti-Russian propaganda: Russian police ordered not to publish information about crimes during the World Cup Signs of the Times

Police have been ordered not to publish any information about crimes during the World Cup as Vladimir Putin attempts to craft an image of Russia as a transgression-free zone. With fears lingering of a terrorist attack like the bloody underground bombing last year in St Petersburg, near where the England team is based, Moscow has deployed missile launchers and anti-drone jammers at stadiums. Regional cops have been dragooned to patrol host cities, leaving their home towns complaining of shortages. The media blackout underlines the push to make the national prestige project a success after Vladimir Putin told police in February that the " image of the nation depends upon the thoroughness of your work". In a copy of a document seen by The Telegraph, a colonel in Russia's central federal district ordered subordinates to "cease publishing in the mass media information about investigative operations and preventative measures" from June 5 to July 25.

Child Abductions: A Conversation Its Hard to Believe Were Even Having The Fifth Column

 

(Garrison) We shouldnt need Cardinal Timothy Dolan to tell us this:

If they want to take a baby from the arms of his mother and separate the two, thats wrong. I dont care where youre at, what time and condition, that just goes against you dont have to read the Bible for that. That goes against human decency. That goes against human dignity. It goes against whats most sacred in the human person.

Dont get me wrong. Im glad he said it, as Im far from sure I could have said it nearly as well. But Im just completely floored by the idea that, in this day and age, Americans need the Archbishop of New York to remind us of something as obvious as the fact that its wrong to abduct children.

According to the Associated Press, it happened nearly 2,000 times between mid-April and the end of May, with no end in sight.

US law enforcement agencies arent trying to track down the kidnappers and bring them to justice. US law enforcement agencies ARE the kidnappers, and US Attorney General Jeff Sessions pretends, quoting the Bible, no less, that this IS justice.

As jaded as weve become since 9/11 as accustomed to the governments violations of our own rights and the rights of those abroad, whether its TSA thugs groping Americans at airports or the CIA torturing foreigners at foreign black sites  surely we can all agree that this time Washington has finally gone too far, right?

Well, no. The President of the United States, his chief of staff, the Attorney General, and even some members of Congress are actively defending the abduction of children. Not as an emergency measure for kids in immediate danger, but as policy for the purpose of punishing  parents who cross an imaginary line on the ground without politicians permission.

Its an evil policy. Officials who order it are loathsome creatures whose appeals to God in its defense are nothing short of blasphemy. They and those who enforce it are criminals. Both deserve short trials and long sentences.

Hint to Republicans: When your best defense of a policy is that youre just escalating a practice that occurred under Democrats as well, youve got no defense at all.

Sessions quoted the Bible. Cardinal Dolan retorts. So does Thomas Jefferson:

Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that his justice cannot sleep forever.

FTI Berlin Lifeboat Non Conformity This weekend I was notified by a passenger, on a German cruise ship named the Berlin, that the ship has been stuck in Dublin, Ireland for the past several days. 

I was not familiar with the cruise ship or the German cruise line, FTI, which operates it. I have learned that the Berlin is considered to be a small cruise ship, carrying a little over 400 passengers. It was built in 1980 and is flagged in Malta. 

The Berlin arrived at its scheduled port of call early in the morning of June 14, 2018 in Dublin, where it has remained for the past three days. The delay has already caused the passengers to miss the remaining port of call. It appears that the passengers will be disembarked today in Dublin and flown back to Bremerhaven. Embarkation for new passengers will reportedly occur tomorrow in Dublin. 

"We arrived on 14 June suppose to sail same date 17.00.  Suppose to sail yesterday then said today finally this morning captain said to guest waiting for information from the home office and port authorities.  Guests were given 250 euro on their cards and refunded their excursion fares." 

Crew members meanwhile have not been permitted to go ashore.

The cause of the delay seems to be a problem with one of its 14 lifeboats which, reportedly, is "out of order."  The exact problem with lifeboat no. 6 has not been disclosed to the guests or crew but it was discovered by port authorities during an inspection on June 14th.

Maritime regulations including Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) regulations mandated by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) require a minimum number of operational lifecrafts (a combination of lifeboats and liferafts).

Bilderberg 2018: Populism, AI, Russia and much more - Reporter infiltrates secret meeting attended by world's top politicians and power brokers Signs of the Times

On the first day of my new job as a hotel waitress - before I have a chance to polish a glass or proffer a canap - I'm primed in detail about how to enter the building. Not via the front foyer, but circuitously through a 'secret staff entrance'. It is imperative I memorise the route, I'm told by the briskly efficient restaurant manager, who steers me through it, via an obscure door by a KFC outlet in a low-rent shopping mall. We then travel up two floors in a shabby service lift, past a phalanx of security men, through an underground delivery area, past bins, a staff canteen and along a harshly lit subterranean corridor that smells of urine. Another staff lift disgorges us into the hotel kitchen, through two swing doors and finally into the light and bustle of its restaurant and gleaming lobby.

Hawaii's Kilauea Volcano is raining Olivine gemstones Signs of the Times

If Hawaii's Klauea volcano were to offer an apology for its chaos and destruction, it just might come in the form of a beautiful green mineral called olivine. Over the past months we've reported on devastating lava flows and bone-shattering boulders. Now it's raining gems - a rare event that has geologists enthralled and the rest of us just plain confused. Before you go racing off to Hawaii with dreams of making it rich, you should know a bit about the science behind this amazing event. Olivine is an incredibly common mineral - chemically speaking, it's magnesium iron silicate. Carried to the surface on volcanic hotspots, it often taints dark igneous rocks such as basalt with mossy green hues.

Wind of Change: G7 Crumbles while the SCO Rises up Operation Disclosure



Source: Covert Geopolitics

The G7 Summit crumbles beneath Donald Trump's feet, while the SCO Summit got bigger and better. Why not? Erstwhile geopolitical enemies, India and Pakistan, just got full memberships to the real gamechanger in the Eurasian continent and the world, the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, making the latter the largest grouping of countries pursuing multipolarity around the globe.

The mood at the SCO Qingdao Summit was a very stark contrast to the contentious G7 meeting between Deep State controlled corporate governments.

Chinese President Xi Jinping gave the leaders of Pakistan and India a "special welcome" to their first SCO summit, while Russian leader Vladimir Putin said the new members made the alliance look as it should be. "Regarding the enlargement [of the body], we agreed that the current structure is optimal," Putin said, as cited by TASS, adding, "we must see how the organization will work in an enlarged mode."

"If we calculate per capita, the seven countries are wealthier, but the size of the SCO economies [combined] is larger. And the population is of course much bigger half of the planet," Putin stated.

The SCO initially included China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan when in was formed in 2001. After India and Pakistan joined the SCO, it has become the largest regional body in the world in terms of geographical coverage and population, spanning across Eurasian continent and embracing over 3 billion people. "Thanks to joint effort by leaders of the member states, the biggest regional organization bearing global responsibility has appeared on the map,"said Rashid Alimov, the sitting SCO Secretary General, according to RIA Novosti.

Homeless Man Becomes Millionaire by Building Beaches in Peoples Backyards TruthTheory

By Amanda Froelich Truth Theory

Sometimes, you dont know your true calling until it finds you. This was certainly the case for Eric White, 33, the owner of Zydeco Construction. The once formerly-homeless man now owns a Louisiana-based company that builds beaches in peoples backyards, and hes making millions doing it.

When White was 15-years-old, he was homeless for about eight months. Growing up, things werent easy for me, he told USA Today. White dropped out of school in the ninth grade and only had a second-grade reading skill. I could hardly even spell my name, he said.

Despite his lacking education, he always felt as if he understood construction. I knew if I worked at it, said White, I could really do something with it. He got his start working for a local construction company just to pay the bills. But later, he learned of a job opening with a Baton Rouge-based company that paid $12 hour. The guy that I worked for there took me under his wing and taught me about the company. Within the first six months,...

California Senate Passes Bill to Create a Cannabis Banking Industry Operation Disclosure



Source: The Free Thought Project | by Matt Agorist

In states with legal marijuana, dispensaries and retailers are forced to operate in legal gray areas because the federal government still wants to lock people in cages for possessing this plant. One particularly troublesome aspect of this prohibition is that legal marijuana business cannot accept credit cards and are blocked from using traditional banks. Thanks to a new bill in California, however, all that could be about to change.

In January, Sen. Bob Hertzberg, (D-Van Nuys), along with a bipartisan coalition of nine cosponsors, introduced Senate Bill 930 (SB930) which would create a self-contained banking industry solely for the cannabis industry inside the state of California.

Last week, the California Senate passed the bill. If the bill makes it through final approval, the implications are revolutionary and would aid in further nullifying the federal prohibition of cannabis.

Passage of SB930 would bypass the federal banking system entirely and pave the way for competition in the industry outside of federal control. The current system makes it against the law for banks to accept money from what the federal government considers "illegal activity" even though the state has legalized it. The federal government can and likely would prosecute banks who service the cannabis industry under the Bank Secrecy Act, the USA Patriot Act, and the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act.

As the Tenth Amendment Center reports, under the proposed law, the state would license "cannabis limited charter banks and credit unions." Cannabis businesses would be able to deposit fu...

Reincarnation was Intentionally Removed from the Bible According to Evidence Operation Disclosure



Source: Collective Evolution | by Alanna Ketler

The bible makes a promise that if you accept Jesus Christ into your heart, follow the rules given and live a life as free of sin as possible, then maybe God will let you into heaven. This is the widespread belief of Christianity, Catholicism and many other sanctions of those major world religions.

However, increasing evidence brought to light from various historians and skeptics show that there was a lot of information that was not only left out of the bible, but disinformation that was deliberately added to the bible after the new testament was released.

Did Jesus Christ Really Die On The Cross?

I recently watched a fascinating short documentary put out by the BBC called, Did Jesus Die On The Cross? That made claims that Jesus actually did not die on the cross after being crucified as many believe as the official story. Instead, historians point towards many missing holes in the bible, particularly between the Old and New Testament and much of the conflicting information leads towards the possibility that Jesus never actually died on the cross.

Some skeptics say that Jesus was not resurrected after dying on the cross, but instead resuscitated, which wasn't something that people during that time saw very often, (if not ever because we didn't have knowledge of CPR or any shock paddles to essentially bring people to life back) then and continued on to live a full life.

There are many records discussed in the film that point towards the possibility that Jesus actually went abroad to India, Nepal and the Himalayas and lived among Buddhist monks before and after his alleged crucifixion. Whatever the true story is it seems clear that the mainstream accepted belief of the events of the bible should...

Brazil: Rio de Janeiro police 'resistance to authority' killings doubled during last 5 months Signs of the Times

A total of 142 deaths were confirmed in the state of Rio de Janeiro in May compared to 97 during the same month last year. The number of persons killed by police in the state of Rio de Janeiro increased by 46 percent in May 2018 when compared to May 2017. The increase, which was detailed in a study by Brazil's Institute of Public Safety, showed police killed 142 persons in May 2018 compared to 97 over the same period last year. Authorities classified all the deaths as being due to "resistance to authority" or "resistance to arrest" (auto de resistencia) by the victims. The term, which is commonly used by police officers, implies a series of actions: the police killed someone who they describe as being a "bandido" or a thug; next, the police claim legitimate defense because the suspect was resisting arrest, the sole witnesses to the events are often the officers, and if the case is officially registered as resisting arrest; an investigation into the death of the suspect is insignificant, and no police officer would be held responsible.

UFC Fighter Overcomes Depression by Liberating Pygmy Slaves in the Congo TruthTheory

By Amanda Froelich Truth Theory

There is no denying that hardship, which is an inevitability of life, propels change. Oftentimes, that change is necessary. Perhaps it is the loss of a loved one, a sudden career change, or a chronic sickness. While it may, at first, perceived to be bad, the development can also be a blessing. This was the case for UFC fighter Justin Wren, who overcame depression to change the lives of hundreds of pygmy people in the Congo.

Wren began his career as an all-American champion in wrestling. Later, he started entering local fights to stay in shape while taking college courses. Eventually, this led to a successful MMA career. At one point, his professional record was 10-1 and he was picked to be on The Ultimate Fighter. It seemed as if he was on top of the world. But, the truth of it was he was battling depression and was addicted to painkillers.

I was a drug addictI was diagnosed with clinical depression and my life just sucked for a long time even though on the outside things were going great. In that time, I had become a national champion in wrestling a couple times and started fighting professionally, and the drug addiction and depression just got worse every time after I would fight, Wren told InnoTechToday.

Wren continued to fight but his personal life began to fall apart. When he wasnt battling thoughts of suicide, he was numbing himself in drug dens. Fortunately, his low point led him to religion. Finding purpose helped him get sober, and thats when the fight of his life really began. And so my life really changed I could skate over it, but, God help me, I started wanting to do something bigger with my life, said Wren.

The 63 fighter turned his life around. Hoping to discern his p...

Trade War? India to tax 30 American products in 'equivalent' retaliation for US tariffs hike Signs of the Times

India will suspend trade concessions and raise import duties on 30 products from the United States by up to 50 percent, in a mirror response to Washington's impetuous move to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum imports. New Delhi has drawn up a list of 30 American products it now wants to target with increased import duties. The new measures will see a 50 percent tariff increase on motorcycles with engine capacities of over 800cc, while apple imports would be charged with a 25 percent levy. Imports of almonds and walnuts would see a 20 percent levy. Earlier this week, New Delhi sent a letter to the World Trade Organization notifying the body of its intention. The total tariff increase on all products in the list will amount to an estimated additional $240 million in import fees. The sum is roughly equivalent to the damage India would suffer from Donald Trump's protectionist measures.

FBI's anti-Trump bias clearly seen in DOJ inspector general's report Signs of the Times

I've long been a skeptic of the conspiratorial claims surrounding the actions of the so-called "deep state" during the 2016 campaign. While I believe that the FBI acted in political fashion to exonerate Hillary Clinton, I never believed that the FBI deliberately targeted the Trump campaign; the evidence just didn't seem to be there. After all, Trump could merely declassify such evidence if it existed; he could fire everyone involved. And why didn't these "deep state" actors release damning information about Trump during the campaign, if they were so committed to stopping his campaign? I'm rethinking that position pretty seriously after the release of the Department of Justice (DOJ) inspector general's report. Now, I'm not making the case that there was a broad-based, well-organized conspiracy inside the FBI to stop President Trump. But it is obvious, from the available evidence, that (1) certain high-ranking actors inside the FBI felt the necessity to stop Trump from becoming president, and were willing to act under color of authority to do so; and (2) the leading actors inside the FBI assumed that Hillary would be president, and tailored their actions based on that assumption. These claims are well-supported in the inspector general (IG) report.

Ugandan Bacteria used in Vaccine Against Depression The Mind Unleashed

Research from the University of Colorado Boulder recently published in the journal Brain, Behavior and Immunity recently proposed a vaccine against depression, containing a bacteria first identified in the African country of Uganda called Mycobacterium vaccae.

Image credit: trekearth

Mycobacterium vaccae was first discovered in Uganda, in the 1990s near the shores of Lake Kyoga. It belongs to the very same genus of bacteria that causes tuberculosis, with the genus originally identified in Austria.

The articles promoting this vaccine against depression are quite convincing to even the people who favor naturopathy, because it is branded as a probiotic solution to depression.

Recently, researchers have been claiming that brain inflammation could be identified as a cause of depression. Its difficult to debate the legitimacy of this theory. Since inflammation is generally the root of many medical problems, it sounds probable that inflammation could be a factor in depression. In any case, this is what they are saying about the vaccine against depression.

Researchers in this study injected a heat-killed preparation of the bacterium into rats. According to New Atlas, An immunization pattern was administered, with three injections across three weeks.

Eight days after the last dose of the bacteria, the rats had increased levels of an anti-inflammatory protein known as interleukin-4 in the hippocampus region of their brains.

How Iran Outmaneuvered the U.S.-Saudi-Israeli Axis Truthdig RSS

Donald Trump allegedly complained to Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu that after the 2015 nuclear deal, Iranians think they can do anything they want. Presumably Trump was referring to Irans geopolitical reach in the Middle East, where it had gathered up allies in Lebanon, Syria, Iraq and Yemen.

It is likely that Trumps violation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, the deal signed between Iran and the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council plus Germany, was intended to set the stage for a push to contain Iran.

The push against Iran would involve again subjecting it to severe economic sanctions, in hopes of bankrupting it and depriving it of the means with which to continue to play a role in Iraq, Syria and Lebanon.

Boycotts on oil states are not usually effective, since they can usually find a way to sell their oil lucratively nevertheless and use the proceeds to cushion the countrys elect.

One corner of the attempt at rollback involves Iraq. When a reconstruction conference took place last February in Kuwait, the Trump administration refused to make any contribution at all to rebuilding the country that the U.S. destroyed. At the same time, the U.S. encouraged Iraq to take aid from Saudi Arabia as a quid pro quo for moving away from Iran.

The continued tone-deafness in Washington about Middle East politics, after all these years of being deeply immersed in it, is baffling. The Shiite majority in Iraq isnt necessarily opposed to better relations with Wahhabi Saudi Arabia. People are more pragmatic than the clash of civilizations or Sunni-Shiite conflict theses might lead one to expect.

But that the Shiite-majority government of Iraq would turn its back on Iran in favor of an alignment with Saudi Arabia (which does not like Shiites very much) is a daft proposition.

Another sign of Iran Derangement Syndrome in Washington was the unrealistic hopes expressed by right-wing pundits that the Iraqi parliamentary election would signal a turn of Iraq away from Iran. The biggest vote-getters were followers of the hard line Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr, who had quixotically allied with the small Communist movement.

Al-Sadr is known for resenting Iranian domination of Iraqi Shiism. His father, an Iraqi Arab, had been a contender for the position of chief Iraqi Shiite authority or clerical Exemplar in Najaf before he was assassinated by the Saddam Hussein regime in 1998. His fathers rival, who rose to the top, is Ali Sistani, from a town near Mashhad in eastern Iran, who came to Iraq in 1952. Not only is Sistani the leading religious authority for Iraqi Shiites but Irans clerical Leader, Ali Khamenei, also has influence.

Al-Sadr, however, has just announced that he will form a post-election coalition with Hadi al-Ameri, the leade...

3500 year old pipe reveals Americans were smoking tobacco much earlier than previously thought Signs of the Times

In the late 1930s, archaeologists in northern Alabama rushed to excavate a now-submerged Native American site at the confluence of the Flint and Tennessee rivers, racing the rising tide brought on by the newly built Guntersville Dam. Dozens of artifacts were discovered, then sealed up in paper bags and kept at the Alabama State Repository. There they gathered dust until 70 years later, when a team of archaeologists and chemists came looking for a particular item noted in the repository catalog: FS74, an engraved smoking pipe or "medicine tube," carved from limestone. With the support of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians, the researchers had been examining ancient Native American pipes for years, using a chemical analysis technique called mass spectrometry to look for traces of plant material left behind. Their hunt, which was meant to shed light on the religious and ritualistic history of smoking, had already yielded tobacco and jimsonweed residue in pipes dating back a few hundred years.

Broumana Should Get Rid of its Valet Parking Instead of Deploying Girls in Shorts Blog Baladi

Yesterday when I first read the exciting news, as described by MTV, about Broumana deploying female police officers in shorts, I didnt pay attention to the fact that most of these girls are minors or at least they look under age.

I dont know who came up with this brilliant idea, but I would suggest that the Broumana municipality gets rid of its valet parking companies if theyre serious about organizing traffic, not deploying teenage police girls in police cosplay. Im still trying to understand the rationale behind it, whether its to entertain drivers stuck in traffic or to promote Broumana as a safe area for families (its already a family-oriented place) but none of them make sense.

If they really want more people to visit, they should start by getting rid of all valet parking companies and set up proper parking lots. The reason I havent visited Broumana yet this summer and Im probably not planning to this summer is due to the lack of parking lots, the disgusting valet companies and the horrendous traffic.

How To Access Your Inner Strength During Traumatic Experiences TruthTheory

By Mateo Sol via Loner Wolf

Almost all of us have experienced some kind of traumatic or shocking event.

When I speak of trauma, I dont always mean extreme situations such as natural disasters, instances of abuse, rape, murder, and accidents. While traumatic experiences often are severe and horrific, they can also be seemingly mundane experiences such as losing a job, daily stress, divorcing, and moving somewhere foreign. Trauma also can, and often does, come as a result of the spiritual awakening process in which our entire self-concept begins to crumble and were thrown into the abyss of an existential crisis.

Trauma is unique for each person. While we might find changing jobs just another daily task, another person may find the switch highly distressing. We should be very careful about judging other people when it comes to trauma. Every person is different and possesses different levels of sensitivity.

How to Know Whether Youre Going Through a Traumatic Experience

A traumatic experience is anything that severely threatens your emotional, psychological or physical well-being. Essentially, trauma is anything that causes us to feel like were losing or have lost control. Feeling traumatized is often accompanied by the experiences of feeling:

  • Numb or disconnected from the world
  • Sad and hopeless
  • Anxious and fearful
  • Hypervigilance (constantly looking out for danger)

'Mad Dog' Mattis: Evil Putin is aiming to 'undermine America's moral authority and belief in ideals' Signs of the Times

At a graduation ceremony for the US Naval War College (barf), US Secretary of Defense James Mattis asserted that Russian President Vladimir Putin "aims to diminish the appeal of the western democratic model and attempts to undermine America's moral authority," and that "his actions are designed not to challenge our arms at this point but to undercut and compromise our belief in our ideals." This would be the same James Mattis who's been overseeing the war crimes committed by America's armed forces during their illegal occupation of Syria. This would be the same United States of America that was born of the genocide of indigenous tribes and the labor of African slaves, which slaughtered millions in Korea, Vietnam, Cambodia, Iraq, Libya and Syria for no legitimate reason, which is partnered with Ukrainian Nazis, jihadist factions in Syria and Iranian terror cultists, which supports 73 percent of the world's dictators, which interferes constantly in the electoral processes of other countries as a matter of policy, which stages coups around the world, which has encircled the globe with military bases, whose FBI still targets black civil rights activists for persecution to this very day, which routinely enters into undeclared wars of aggression against noncompliant governments to advance plutocratic interests, which remains the only country ever to use nuclear weapons on human beings after doing so completely needlessly in Japan, and which is functionally a corporatist oligarchy with no meaningful "democratic model" in place at all.

This spring, the U.S. attorney's office for the Southern District of New York, acting on a tip from Special Counsel Robert Mueller, made a surprise appearance at the office of Trump's personal attorney, Michael Cohen, and removed thousands of documents. It appears law enforcement officials were not necessarily looking for documents directly related to the ongoing investigation of whether the Trump campaign worked with Russian agents to defeat Hillary Clinton, but rather at possible crimes wholly unrelated to the campaign, presumably to put the squeeze on Manafort and Cohen to turn on Trump in the Russia probe.

FDA Found Glyphosate in Nearly All Foods Tested and Hid the Results Humans Are Free

by Jonathan Landsman

In an alarming revelation, it has come to light that government scientists at U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have found the weed killer ingredient glyphosate in many popular processed foods. 

This information was in emails that were obtained through a freedom of information request (what they did with that intelligence is SHOCKING!).

Glyphosate is perhaps best known as the main ingredient in the Roundup weed killer brand from the Monsanto company. And, the FDA has been testing foods for the presence of herbicides and pesticides including, this highly toxic substance glyphosate for two years but had not released results. (Gee, I wonder why).

Ruling on Nonvoters in Ohio May Embolden Other States Truthdig RSS

In a 5-4 decision released June 11, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld an Ohio law that provides for the removal of infrequent voters from the states election rolls.

On the surface, the courts majority opinion in Husted v. A. Phillip Randolph Institute is a highly technical analysis of whether Ohios so-called Supplemental Process law runs afoul of the federal National Voter Registration Act of 1993 and the Help America Vote Act of 2002. The courts decision, written by Justice Samuel Alito and joined by the courts other Republican appointees, concluded that it did not.

According to Alito, the Ohio law, which dates back to 1994 but in recent years has been more strictly enforced, is simply meant to keep the States voting lists up to date by removing the names of those who have moved out of the district where they are registered.

Heres how the Supplemental Process works: Voters who have failed to cast a ballot for two consecutive years (the equivalent of one federal election cycle) are mailed a pre-addressed, postage prepaid card asking them to verify that they still reside at the same address. Those who do not return the card and fail to vote in any election for four more years are presumed to have moved and are removed from the rolls.

As Alito and the courts Republican majority view voting rights, there is no textual inconsistency between the Ohio law and the right to vote, as protected by various federal statutes and the Constitution. All that a resident need do to avoid disenfranchisement is return the postcard sent by the state or vote within an overall six-year period.

Alitos reasoning seems at first clear enough, and on its face apolitical. Justice Stephen Breyers dissenting opinion, joined by the courts four Democratic appointees, is based largely on differing statutory interpretations.

But, as Justice Sonia Sotomayor pointed out in a separate dissent, Alitos majority opinion is in reality an exercise of disenfranchisement that entirely ignores the history of voter suppression in America and will disproportionately affect minority, homeless, low-income, and disabled voterswho, not coincidentally, tend to vote Democratic.

Our democracy rests on the ability of all individuals, regardless of race, income, or status, to exercise their right to vote, Sotomayor wrote, stressing that while most states have a variety of processes in place to maintain the accuracy of their voting lists, only Ohio presently triggers voting-roll purges based solely on an individuals failure to vote in a single election cycle.

As one instance of the Supplemental Process racially disproportionate impact, Sotomayor cited figures compiled by the NAACP for Ohios Hamilton County. These showed that African American-majority neighborhoods in downtown Cincinnati have seen 10 percent of t...

An Indonesian woman has been cut out of the stomach of a giant python after the snake ate her alive. Disturbing footage shows villagers slice open the creature to recover the woman's body. The victim, named as 54-year-old Wa Tiba, was reported missing in Muna regency, southeast Sulawesi on Thursday night, after she went to check on her corn plantation. The next morning family members searching for her found a torch, slippers and a machete on the ground near the plantation, reports Tribune News.com. Later that morning, villagers spotted an eight-meter-long (26 foot) python with a swollen belly near the location, raising suspicions that Tiba had been swallowed whole by the snake and prompting locals to kill the creature.

Volcano in the Galapagos Islands erupts after series of 9 earthquakes Signs of the Times

Lava flows and a gas column spanning about two to three kilometers high have been a feature of the eruption. According to the Geophysical Institute (I) of the National Polytechnic School, the Galapagos' La Cumbre volcano - located on Fernandina island - erupted Saturday. The eruption took place between 11:00 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. (Galapagos time) and was preceded by a series of nine earthquakes ranging from 2.5-magnitude to 4.1-magnitude. La Cumbre volcano measures 1,476-meter high and occupies almost the entire island. The eruption occurred on the northeastern sector of the volcano. Lava flows and a gas column spanning about two to three kilometers high have been a feature of the eruption. Reports are that a flow has already reached the sea. "There are some species that could be affected, however, being a flow (of lava) that is in only one direction, on only one side of the island, the possible impacts that there would be would not have a significant impact on biodiversity," director of the Galapagos National Park (PNG), Jorge Carrion, assured.

Veterinarian Stephane Lair said Friday evening that the geese had small lesions in their hearts that indicated a possible strike.

Thousands gather to mark first anniversary of Grenfell Tower inferno

16 June 2018

The first anniversary of the Grenfell Tower fire on June 14, 2017 drew thousands of people to events in London and around the UK.

People began gathering outside the tower on the Lancaster West estate in west London from the early hours of Thursday morningmarking the exact time that the fire startedto honour the 72 victims and the survivors. The burned-out husk, now concealed behind a white surround, was lit in green, which has become the symbolic colour of Grenfell.

At noon, a national 72-second silence was observed in remembrance of the victims.

The mood of many was captured in a video tweeted by Sky News, showing the moment on Thursday that a London Underground tube driver briefly stopped his train on the bridge at Latimer Road stationonly yards from the towerand got out of his cabin to wave a green flag to hundreds who had gathered below.

Palestines Feminists Are Fighting on Two Fronts Truthdig RSS

I am here because I heard my town call me, and ask me to maintain my honor. Fifty-seven-year-old Um Khalid Abu Mosa spoke in a strong, gravelly voice as she sat on the desert sand, a white tent protecting her from the blazing sun. The land, she says with determination, is honor and dignity.

She was near the southern Gaza Strip town of Khuzaa, the heavily fortified barrier with Israel in plain sight and well-armed Israeli soldiers just a few hundred meters away. Abu Mosas left arm was wrapped in a sling fashioned from a black-and-white-checkered kuffiyeh, or scarf, and a Palestinian flag. Israeli soldiers had shot her in the shoulder with live ammunition on March 30th as she approached the barrier to plant a Palestinian flag in a mound of earth. The bullet is still lodged in her collarbone. Three weeks later, however, shes back at the Great Return March, a series of protests organized around five encampments stretching along a unilaterally imposed Israeli buffer zone on the 37-mile barrier between the Gaza Strip and Israel.

The Return March, which has just ended, was unique in recent history in Gaza for a number of reasons. Palestinians there are known for engaging in militant resistance against the Israeli occupation and also for the internal political split in their ranks between two dominant factions, Fatah and Hamas. Yet, in these weeks, the March has been characterized by a popular, predominantly nonviolent mobilization during which Gazas fractured political parties have demonstrated a surprising degree of unity. And perhaps most noteworthy of all, women activists have played a visibly crucial role in the protests on a scale not seen for decades, possibly indicating what the future may look like when it comes to activism in the Gaza Strip.

The Return March began on March 30th, or Land Day, commemorating the 1976 killings of six Palestinians inside Israel who had been protesting land confiscations. The March was slated to end on May 15th, the 70th anniversary of the Nakba, Arabic for catastrophe. The term is used to refer to the 1948 war that led to the creation of Israel and the displacement of approximately 750,000 Palestinians, as well as the depopulation of more than 450 Palestinian towns and villages. Seventy percent of Gazas blockaded population is made up of those who fled or were expelled from their lands and villages during the Nakba or their descendants. The vast majority of those participating in the Great Return March, including Abu Mosa, know those native villages only through family lore, yet their yearning to return is visceral.

During the March, 125 Pales...

4 Telling Signs That Your Spirit Guide Is Trying To Help You (Pay Attention on #2) Awareness Act

We have all experienced some sort of paranormal experience at some point or another. Although you think it was a ghost, it might have actually been your spirit guide trying to help you.

Have you ever felt like you were being watched, felt a sudden temperature change in a room, or had inanimate objects move? Dont be frightened; it might be your spirit guide. Spirit guides are spiritual beings that watch over our spirits and try and guide us when they have the opportunity. If you are feeling like you are stuck in between a rock and a hard place then it is likely you might be experiencing these things. These 3 things are telling signs that your spirit guide is trying to lead you to a certain path.

Feeling a Presence

If you feel as if you are being watched, then this is a major indicator. It happens more often than we think too. This is often a sign of a deceased love one watching out for you, or keeping up with what you are doing. Feeling a presence in the room with you is a clear sign that they are trying to contact you.

Hearing Your Name

Have you ever been walking somewhere, in public perhaps, and hear your name very blatantly called out? Perhaps even more than once. It usually catches your attention immediately, as intended. Your spirit guide is trying to get your attention! Open yourself up to the spiritual world and see if you can make contact.

Vivid Dreams or Memories

Although it is normal to dream, you may be experiencing abnormal dreams. They are extremely vivid, and you remember them very well. It is almost as real as what is right in front of you. This can also happen with memories. If you have sudden memories but cant place where they came from, then this is a key indicator your spirit guide is trying to contact you.

 

Animals Will Act Out Around You

If you have ever been in the presence of a dog and have it scurry away from you for no reason, then it is likely that your spirit guide is nearby. Animals are often startled by the presence of paranormal entities because they have the ability to sense them more than humans do. If you start noticing that animals are acting out of the norm when you are near you might want to pay attention!

44 Congressmen urge Mattis to immediately halt 'inconceivable' sale of F-35s to Turkey Signs of the Times

A group of US congressmen has urged Defense Secretary James Mattis to scrap F-35 sales to Turkey, over national security concerns about the NATO ally's plan to buy Russian S-400 anti-aircraft system, despite Washington's pressure. Less than a week before Lockheed Martin plans to formally deliver the first batch of F-35A Lighting II jets ordered by Turkey, and before the Senate votes on a bill to suspend all weapons sales to Ankara, a group of 44 Congressmen has written a letter to Mattis outlining how "inconceivable" it would be to sell the jets to its NATO ally. "Our concern about the sale of F-35 jets to Turkey comes against the backdrop of Turkey's planned purchase of the Russian S-400 surface-to-air missile system. As a NATO ally, Turkey integrates its military systems with those of other NATO members," the letter, dated June 15, reads. "It is inconceivable that we would place the F-35 technology in the hands of the deepening Russian-Turkish relationship."

The Best And Worst Dads Of The Zodiac Awareness Act

We all know that there are 12 zodiac signs but of those 12 only four of each fall into one of these two categories. Everyone else is average in their own ways but these signs are the best and the worst when it comes to fatherhood.

Below you will find two lists of four. The first being the best zodiac dads and the second being the worst. While there will, of course, be exceptions to this I believe it is quite accurate. Each of these signs made the list that they did for different reasons and some of those reasons really suck.

The Best Dads of The Zodiac:

Cancer

The Cancer makes a great dad because he is able to put his own bias aside for the sake of his children. He empathizes well and is very loyal in all the best ways. The Cancer father is willing to discipline as needed and while it might make him feel bad is not going to let his children push their limits.

Leo

The Leo makes a great dad because he is always there for his children in all the ways he can be. He is very spotlight driven so he wants to see them succeed and he will go above and beyond to really make their dreams come true. With that being said, sometimes he can be a bit of a pushover.

Virgo

The Virgo dad is always worried about the wellbeing of his offspring. He keeps their best interest at heart and while he might criticize them a bit more than he should he does so with the best intentions. He is the kind of dad who is very present in his childrens lives.

Libra

The Libra dad is always working hard to provide his children with things he never had when he was a child. He builds a deep and very strong relationship with each of them and stays very present in their lives. He holds his own and does not let them walk all over him but he also keeps their wellbeing in mind.

The Worst Dads of The Zodiac:

Taurus

The Taurus dad tends to fly off the handle a bit more than he should. Because of this, his children dont know how to approach him. For instance, when they have bad news to tell him they dont quite know what kind of response to expect so they lie.

Capricorn

The Capricorn dad is a bit too disconnected for his own good. This puts a strain on the relationship he is able to build with his children. While he wants to be there for them he is going about it in the wrong ways.

Aquarius

The Aquarius dad is too overprotective. He doesnt engage enough and leaves his children wondering where they stand. They dont know that he cares and they feel like when he is saying no or being mean it is because he basically hates them, even if that is not the case.

Pisces

The Pisces dad is too relaxed, he lets his kids walk all over him. He goes about most things in the wrong way and forgets the important things even when he doesnt mean to. His life is complicated at best and children just make his mind all the more...

There Are 6 Planets In Retrograde This Month Are We All Doomed? Awareness Act

This year is one full of energy as you most likely already know/feel. This month in itself is jam-packed and while June is getting close to an end the shift beginning July is about to begin.

From June 26th we will officially have up to six planets at once retrograding. This is really going to cause an intense energetic shift and while things have been quite fast lately everything will be finally slowing down. You are going to be forced inward and we are all going to be uncovering things within ourselves that we did not know were there.

While some of these retrogrades will conflict with one another overall these energies will work well together. These planets include Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto, Mars, Neptune, and Mercury. During heavy retrograde periods like this, it is important to remain as grounded as possible. Dont let your struggles get the best of you.

Focus on the issues already at hand and stop taking on so much. You can relax and see where this crazy rollercoaster takes you instead of obsessing over things that do not matter. Mars will be retrograding from close to the end of June well into August and around the first week of July is when this shift I mentioned above will begin. Currently, we are only feeling the effects of some of it, as it makes its way here these energies we are being surrounded by will intensify.

Mars will challenge us all to stop and look at where our lives are headed. You will really question what you want to do with yourself and where you want to end up. This energy will be partnered with the energies of Saturn and from there you will be setting healthy boundaries for yourself. Stepping up and making changes will ensue.

Jupiter has been in retrograde for quite some time now and is nearing its end but before that end happens it will really come through for you. It will make you think outside of the box and have you focusing on bigger and better things.

5 Traits of Actual Psychopaths Awareness Act

Oftentimes, when we think of a psychopath, we instantly make associations to serial killers or criminals. However, psychopaths actually make up a much larger percentage of the population than you would believe, and many are hiding in plain sight.

In all facets of your life, there is sure to be a psychopath lurking around the corner, and in many cases, you probably have even associated with a few. Furthermore, they can be successful businessmen, politicians, parents, friends, and lovers. Chances are, you probably have one in your life right now, and while they may not physically harm you, they can do a lot of damage to everyone around them.

Psychopathy and sociopathy fall under the category of antisocial personality disorder. In order to meet the diagnoses, they must display several withstanding personality traits. Psychiatrists believe the disorder to be caused by both environmental and genetic factors. There are currently forms of therapy that can help; however, there is no cure for the disease. And sadly, since psychopaths are so good at pretending to be normal and avoiding discovery, it is very unlikely for one to be diagnosed.

Dr. Paul Babiak says that 1 out of every 100 people likely carry psychopathic traits. As you enter into business atmospheres those odds increase to 1 out of every 25 managers or executive. And while many criminals are psychopaths, not all psychopaths are criminals. Many live their entire lives without ever obtaining a criminal record.

1. They Show No Empathy 

While a psychopath can know and understand your feelings, they are unable to actually feel them for themselves. Typically, their feelings are quite shallow, especially when it comes to other people. No matter how much they hurt you, or make you cry, they will never be able to care about how they effect you. On the contrary, there are many cases in which they feed off of this sort of behavior.

2. Glibness or Superficial Charm

Like a predatory animal, psychopaths are able to charm and engage you just enough to get you in their midst. Once they have reeled you in, they can then pounce on you, just as they planned all along. You will never even see it coming. They will tell you exactly what you want to hear, and appear to actually be caring. Unfortunately, once you have been reigned in, it is hard to push them away.

3. They Will Attempt to Manufacture Negative...

How To Identify And Cope With Chronic Stress Awareness Act

Stress is something we all deal with on a day to day basis but chronic stress can really ruin your life. Chronic stress takes a toll on us both mentally and physically and should be dealt with as quickly as possible.

Chronic stress is an overwhelming feeling that can affect anyone. It can have health consequences and adversely affect your immune, neuroendocrine, central nervous systems, or even your cardiovascular health. Unlike your average everyday stress factors chronic stress is already built up to the point where it really shakes you to the core.

You see, when we face stress each day without actually acknowledging it we are allowing it to build up more and more. Eventually, these things will turn into chronic stress and begin really taking a toll on us. Managing this kind of stress is not easy and taking the first step towards it is not going to be something you can dive into overnight.

When it comes to reducing chronic stress you really have to make lifestyle changes. You have to make the necessary decisions that will push you forward towards a more healthy outlook on well, everything. These things are not easy because the stress itself literally changes our bodies chemistry and how it functions.

If you are feeling as if there is no possible way out of your current situation you are most likely chronically stressed. People who are going through chronic stress tend to be very overwhelmed with the demands and pressures in their lives. They do not have a means of actually managing their stress so they just accept that it is there and will always be there. These people end up internalizing their stress and eventually that stress has to come out.

You see, chronic stress is not as easy to pinpoint as other kinds of stress. We know when we are facing acute stress because its new stress but chronic stress is something that can hide away in the shadows for a long time. Now, when it comes to managing chronic stress you first have to accept that it is what you are dealing with.

Once you are able to accept it you can work to change it. You begin by taking small steps and then move up from there. In my opinion, the best place to start is in your bedroom. Get more sleep if you need it. Make sure you are able to get the sleep your body needs so that you can begin coping with the things bringing it down. Set healthy boundaries and limits for the things making you feel overwhelmed.

If you dont have to do it to survive, stop wasting your time. Really break things down and if it isnt essential, give it a rest. Once you have done these things you can begin taking the time to better yourself and support yourself. Lighten your load by sharing the burden with someone else or just take a few days off, whatever you feel needs to be done should be done.

Speaking out about war crimes - Julian Assange (We) can do better



If you knew that a government routinely covered up soldiers massacring civilians as if they were shooting them in a video game, would you stay silent?

If you knew that 66,081 of the 109,000 recorded deaths in the illegal war on Iraq from US military were civilians, would you stay silent?

If you found out that a government was spying on the citizens of every nation in the world and passing the information onto corporations and the military, would you stay silent?

Julian Assange did not stay silent. Courageously, he published the documents exposing murder and illegal surveillance, passed on to him by US. soldier, Private Manning.

These documents were also accessed and published in whole or in part by many other reporting outlets, including The Guardian, Der Spiegel, The New York Times, El Pas, Al-Akhbar, Svenska Dagbladet, Aftonbladet, Verdens Gang, Aftenposten, Politiken, NRC, RTL Nieuws, Die Welt,and Fairfax Media. But those media are not being punished.

The United States Government was the government involved in these war crimes and illegal global surveillance. It controlled the mainstream and corporate press and was incensed that Wikileaks, an alternative press, had the moral conviction to out it for its crimes. Its revenge was to engineer Julian Assange's illegal detention in the Ecuadorian Embassy from August 2012.

Using trumped up charges, the UK and Swedish Governments colluded with the United States so that Assange was likely to be extradited to the United States on unknown and probably illegal grounds if he left his place of asylum. The United States has the highest rates of imprisonment in the world and its private and military prisons are known to be brutal and unaccountable.

Assange did not committed any crime by publishing material from a foreign state, any more than have the newspapers who also published this. His arbitrary detention has been denounced by the United Nations. His access to internet, telephone and visitors have all been withdrawn recently and a change of government in Ecuador threatens his continued asylum in its embassy. The Australian Government needs to act to bring Assange home to safety, in accordance with UN rulings.

Will you speak up for Julian Assange, as he did for you?

Rallies planned for Australia include: on Sunday 17 June: Sydney - 1-3 PM at the Town Hall Square. Speakers include John Pilger and James Cogan Socialist Equity Party (SEP) National Secretary. on Tuesday 19 June: Melbourne - outside the British Consulate 12-2PM. (...

How to Free Your Mind from Mainstream Media Brainwashing Humans Are Free

Starting with Gutenbergs printing press, then Thomas Edisons motion picture camera and the introduction of celluloid and the silver screen, and later the cathode ray tube a select few media institutions, and the men behind them, have enjoyed monolithic monopoly over the information we see and hear.

Their machine is awesome and seemingly unstoppable, and reaches anywhere, anytime and into the minds of all it targets.

How does one navigate, let alone make sense, of this 21st century matrix?

If this transformation were truly an organic process, then most critical minds would be able to rationally deal with our total immersion in media.

But the evolution of technology and how we interact with it is not so easy to articulate. As platforms and choice continue to proliferate, the situation is becoming more attuned to Chaos Theory than Darwinian Theory.

This Is What Kind Of Person You Are, According To Your Birth Month Awareness Act

The month in which you were born can reveal a lot more than you think about who you are as a person both on the inside and on the outside.

The personality descriptions that follow are for each month of the year. They detail how you often feel and act, as well as how others view you, and your effect on them. Theyre drawn from astrology, which based the character traits upon how the stars were aligned in the month you were born. This has been described by many as eerily accurate and fitting.

Read on to see if your birth month description matches you, have fun, and enjoy!

January

You are opinionated, headstrong, and driven. You are always observing the surrounding world and love learning new things, which you often pass on to others since youre a natural teacher.

February

You are very creative, abstract, and intellectual. You can be temperamental and aggressive if you feel trapped, but if you feel free and comfortable you become charming, honest, and loyal.

March

You are quiet, introspective, and seek peaceful surroundings. You are courteous to everyone you meet yet you tend to hide your true feelings and personality from the world.

April

You are strong mentally and physically and rush into things that you sometimes later regret. You crave attention and thrive when all eyes are on you, which may be why youre also a thrill-seeker.

May

You are strong-willed, beautiful physically and mentally, and sharp as a tack. You can be easily angered, but also easily consoled. You often have crazy dreams at night and for your future.

June

You are courteous, polite, and sensitive. Oftentimes you are soft-spoken so people listen up when you speak, plus you are a visionary with lots of ideas and think far ahead.

July

You are witty, energetic, and a blast to hang out with. You always are up for whatever comes your way and people are drawn to you. However, you are easily hurt and take awhile to recover.

August

You are funny, brave, caring, and a natural born leader. Your lovable personality and inspiring spirit can sometimes give way to angry outbursts and jealousy, but you bounce back quickly.

September

You are careful, organized, confident, calm, and a perfectionist. You can be critical of others which may alienate them because you expect a lot from people and are stubborn in your ways.

October

You are talkative, socially adept, and full of life and charm. You are independent and when you get hurt you recover quickly, perhaps its because youre an optimist and have a positive outlook.

November

You are unique, brave, secretive, and sharp-minded. You rarely get angry an...

12 Things Your Husband Secretly Hates About You Awareness Act

One of the strongest words is the word Hate. But it might not be strong enough to express the feeling of your husbands care about you. Yes, this is exactly how it is. Confused, right? Please, lets read on.

He may not always be the best at showing it, but here are 10 things your husband really hates:

He hates when you call yourself fat.

No, really! It really starts to get old after a while. All he thinks about is how beautiful you are, all of the time, and even when he tells you and means it, you still brush him off. And you know what? That doesnt feel good and eventually, he will stop telling you.

Your husband hates it when he is the reason for your heart to break.

Sometimes he does something that he did not mean to do in the first place and he ends up hurting you. The last thing on his mind is to break your heart and if he does, then let him apologize and make things right.

He hates how much pressure you put on yourself.

You dont need to go to every single school event and you dont need to do everything for the kids.

He doesnt really know how to tell you this in a way that wont hurt your feelings, but you put so much pressure on yourself that doesnt need to be there. You dont need to go to every single school event and you dont need to do everything for the kids. You just dont.

He hates when you fail.

Your hubby wants you to win every competition and get success in every walks of your life. He hates when things wont work out as expected. Also, he tries to put all the possible effort to make you see win. He knows how smart you are and what you can do. Failure is the vital part of life but always remember that your hubby is always there to help you out.

He hates how you think you need to be perfect 24/7.

When has he ever really been grossed out by you? Think about it. He doesnt care if you stop shaving or smell bad, he really doesnt. He doesnt understand why you think you need to be perfect all of the time. Its OK to just be human, you know?

He hates when you change yourself just to make him happy.

Society is frequently feeding us false ideas of what the perfect wife or woman should like. If you are the married to the right person, he wont force you to live those fake standards because he loves the way you are. He doesnt want to transform into what he likes. So its better to be yourself.

He hates how you talk about people online like its real life.

You get genuinely work...

California Dreaming & Separatist Movement Armstrong Economics

On the November election in California, enough signatures were gathered just over 400,000 to put a question on the ballot should California be split into three states? The discontent in California is certainly regional. The proposal for three states would break California up into North, South, and just California.

Tim Draper has been the primary bankroller behind the division idea. He managed to collect at least 402,000 signatures to divide California into three parts. Northern California will be composed of the region from Oregon down to San Francisco. Southern California would include Fresno, Bakersfield, and San Diego. Then there will be California between these two regions which will be with its capital at Los Angeles. Effectively, three capital cities would emerge, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and San Diego. Anyone who has been to California knows that indeed there are three distinct cultures.

Silicon Valley is a region in the southern San Francisco Bay Area referring to the Santa Clara Valley, which serves as the global center for high technology, venture capital, innovation, and social media. This will be part of Northern California leaving behind the craziness of the Los Angeles politics that has far too often swamped the philosophies of Northern California.

This is once again part of the separatist movement that is rising everywhere around the world. It is all part of the same cycle of Civil Unrest.

It's often cheaper to pay cash for your prescriptions rather than the co-pay, but the pharmacy is legally prohibited from suggesting it BlackListed News

America's health care is totally screwed up, Part Ten Gazillion: in many cases, the medicines your doctor prescribes are cheaper than the co-pay your health insurance charges, which means that if you just buy the meds instead of charging them to insurance, you save money. Which is terrible, but what's worse is that many states have laws that make it illegal for the pharmacist to volunteer this information unless you ask (the insurance companies' benefits mangers keep the profits from this arrangement, and they've successfully lobbied for gag rules that keep pharmacists from subverting it). So remember: every time you bring an Rx to the pharmacy, ask whether you'd save money by paying cash.

Every Single One Of These 10 Things Is Emotional Abuse Awareness Act

If you have ever been involved with a manipulative person you will agree with these. People in todays society will too often be taken advantage of for their kindness. If you are experiencing any of these situations, then you are being emotionally abused.

Emotional abuse ranges from severity and intensity. If you are involved in an emotionally abusive relationship then it is likely that you will talk yourself out of agreeing with these things, dont. If you can relate to any of these then you need to do something about it. It will only get worse, so it is best to deal with it as early as possible. Abusers are good at what they do, so do not get sucked in by their smooth lines or guilt trips. Simply remove yourself from the situation.

Accusations and Blaming

If someone in your family or your significant other is constantly putting a blame on you, then you need to assess the situations. If they are blaming very obviously random life incidents on you, then you need to have a talk.

Blocking and Diverting

If they avoid conversations about serious topics then that is a serious indicator. Very often will manipulative people remove themselves from confrontation and emotional situations. If you somehow manage to get them cornered they will start twisting your words and even more likely to start acting a fool.

Inability to take a joke

If you are in an emotionally abusive relationship, it is likely that your partner is easily offended and will not laugh at themselves under no circumstances. If you or anyone else says anything degrading about them as a joke, it is instantly personal and they will hit you where it hurts to get revenge.

They Point Out Flaws

An emotionally abusive partner will constantly point out your flaws and make you feel like less and less of a person. They call you names, give you labels, and commonly talk bad about you to other people behind your back.

They do not show compassion

They tell you to toughen up, or get over it. They will never empathize with you over anything. Your feelings are always less important than theirs.

They make subtle threats

If your partner threatens you over small or subtle things in a jokingly manner, then this is also a key indicator. They may say they will tell all of your secrets if you leave them, or even more commonly, if you leave me, ill commit suicide. This is not your responsibility and you not only have the right to, but should leave as soon as possible.

Chet Raymo, "Chimps and Cosmologists" Running 'Cause I Can't Fly

"Chimps and Cosmologists"
by Chet Raymo

"Lord Martin Rees, Astronomer Royal and president of the Royal Society in Britain, caused something of a flap by suggesting that humans may never be able to understand the universe. "Some aspects of reality may elude us simply because they're beyond human brains, just as surely as Einstein's ideas would baffle a chimpanzee," he said. Einstein used existing mathematics to develop general relativity, describing how gravity controls the universe on the largest scale. Dirac also used "off-the-shelf" mathematics when devising quantum theory, which describes nature on the subatomic level. After decades of trying, physicists have not been able to unify the two theories, maybe because the mathematical tools to do so are beyond our comprehension, said Rees. So too, understanding our own consciousness and self-awareness may require grasping aspects or dimensions of the universe where the human brain is not equipped to go.

Of course, Rees may be right. The universe may exist on scales and in dimensions that will forever elude us. Our brains are finite; the universe may be infinite. But I wouldn't be too quick to shut the door of progress. History suggests that every generation has had its "dream of a final theory," only to have the next generation take us to a new level of understanding. Yes, our brains are finite, but the future will almost certainly see artificial brains - not necessarily silicon based - vastly superior to our own.

So yes, complete understanding of the universe, or even a complete inventory of what exists, may be ultimately beyond us, which is why it is so silly to base arguments for or against the existence of God on the scientific theory de jour. But I would also suppose that a hundred years or two hundred years from...

"A Stick In The Mud..." Running 'Cause I Can't Fly

At this point I reveal myself in my true colors, as a stick-in-the-mud. I hold a number of beliefs that have been repudiated by the liveliest intellects of our time. I believe order is better than chaos, creation better than destruction. I prefer gentleness to violence, forgiveness to vendetta. On the whole I think that knowledge is preferable to ignorance, and I am sure that human sympathy is more valuable than ideology. I believe that in spite of the recent triumphs of science, men havent changed much in the last two thousand years; and in consequence we must try to learn from history. History is ourselves.

I believe in courtesy, the ritual by which we avoid hurting other peoples feelings, by satisfying our own egos. And I think we should remember that we are all part of a great whole, which for convenience we call nature. All living things are our brothers and sisters.

Will the Slaughter in Gaza Finally Prick the International Conscience for Firm Action? Dissident Voice

We cannot allow the Israeli Government to treat Palestinian lives as inferior to their own, which is what they consistently do, David Steel tells the House of Lords.

Id like to share with you the speech by Steel (aka Lord Steel of Aikwood) in a recent House of Lords debate, the motion being That this House takes note of the situation in the Palestinian Territories. Steel himself opened proceedings with as good a summing-up of the appalling situation as I have heard anywhere.

Here it is word for word from Hansard:

My Lords, I put in for the ballot for todays debate just after the terrible slaughter of 62 Palestinians inside the Gaza fence, which included eight children. I should at the outset declare a former interest. I served for seven years as president of the charity Medical Aid for Palestinians and I am delighted to see that the current president, the noble Baroness, Lady Morris of Bolton, is to speak in this debate. During that time I visited Israel, the West Bank and Gaza several times, once touring Gaza just after the Cast Lead operation, when I saw for myself the wanton destruction of hospitals, schools and factories in what was described by David Cameron as one vast prison camp.

Before anyone accuses me of being one-sided, let me also say that I spent an afternoon with the local Israeli MP in the Ashkelon area in the south of that country and fully understand the intolerable life of citizens there threatened by rockets fired by Hamas from inside Gaza.

In fact, long before I got involved with MAP, back in 1981, I first met Yasser Arafat, leader of the PLO, at a time when our Government would not speak to him on the grounds that the PLO was a terrorist organisation refusing to recognise Israel, a mistake that we have repeated with Hamas. As I got to know Arafat over the years, I recognised that he was a brilliant liberation leader but a disappointing failure as head of the Palestinian Administration. Indeed, it was the incompetence and even corruption of that Administration which led to the success of Hamas in the election in Gaza. But those of us who pride ourselves in democracy cannot just give them the cold shoulder because we did not like the result, and yet that is what happened. The lesson of the successful peace process in Northern Ireland should surely have taught us that the only route to peace has to be through dialogue with those we may not like, rather than confrontation.

That brings me to the policy of the current Israeli Government, backed by the United States of America and, sadly, by our own Government. Israels great tragedy was the assassination of Prime Minister Rabin, who had been relentless in his pursuit of an agreement with the Palestinians. The current Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanya...

Preventing Alzheimers Is Easier Than You Think Awareness Act

Alzheimers is a very serious disease that far more people than most of us realize are affected by. It has been predicted that by the year 2050 it will affect over 100 million people.

In the world today over 25 million people are suffering from dementia and most of those people actually have Alzheimers disease. More recent research has shown us something quite interesting though in regards to the disease itself. It seems insulin resistance has a lot to do with it. This very well could be a driving factor in regards to this damning disease that takes almost all memories away from the people who made them.

This information coming from a study published back in 2015 that came from the Iowa State University. It was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association Neurology and found that when it comes to memory functioning decline insulin resistance really played a huge role. This increases the risks of a person developing Alzheimers disease.

While it might not sound like much this was the first study of its kind. No other study looked at insulin resistance in late middle-aged people. This link is important to note because it will benefit us all in the quest to prevent Alzheimers. Dementia begins when we are young and develops over time so this link is a big-time game changer.

It is also important to note that recent studies have shown people with diabetes have a higher chance of developing Alzheimers. If you want to prevent Alzheimers you need to pay close attention to your body and take care of yourself. Make sure you keep an eye on things like this and keep your blood sugar balanced.

Test the DNA of Kevin Cooper, Says Kim Kardashian West to Jerry Brown Truthdig RSS

Kim Kardashian West, coming off her recent success in getting President Trump to pardon a grandmother serving a life sentence, has taken to Twitter to ask California Gov. Jerry Brown to give San Quentin death row inmate Kevin Cooper the DNA tests he has been denied, tests that could prove his innocence.

Cooper has been imprisoned for 34 years for a savage crime he insists he did not committhe 1983 slaughter of chiropractors and Arabian horse breeders Doug and Peggy Ryen, both 47, their 10-year-old daughter Jessica, and 11-year-old Christopher Hughes. Christopher was a friend of Joshua Ryen, 8, who was attacked and left for dead.

Though Cooper has lost all his appeals, in 2009 five judges from the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals asserted he was framed by the San Bernardino, Calif., Sheriffs Department. The judges were joined by six colleagues in asking for a hearing to prove his innocence. Coopers attorneys continue to gather new evidence that he did not commit the crime.

What separates execution and exoneration in the case are modern DNA tests that Coopers attorneys claim could prove he was framed. They are being fought by the San Bernardino district attorneys office and California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, who say enough DNA testing has been done and no more is needed. The tests could be ordered by the governor, but he has made no public move to do so. Brown has been sitting on Coopers clemency petition, which details numerous examples of law enforcement misconduct in the case, for almost two and a half years.

Following a recent New York Times column by Nicholas Kristof about Cooper, California Sens. Kamala Harris and Dianne Feinstein urged Brown to let the tests proceed. The DNA tests could not only clear Cooper but also point to the original suspects, one of whom, the convicted murderer of a 17-year-old girl, was interviewed by the San Bernardino Sheriffs Department after the murders and agreed to take a polygraph test. However, the detectives changed their minds and decided one would not be necessary.

Kevin Cooper is a Truthdig contributor. His clemency petition and other documents in his case can be found here.

Journalist Narda Zacchino has been investigating this case for over a year. Her next story on Kevin Coopers bid for exoneration will appear on Truthdig next week.

Anti-zionism is not anti-Semitism Signs of the Times

Recently, Batya Ungar-Sargon, an editor at the Forward, wrote an article about the "failings" of intersectionality, and the specific "failing" of the left to include anti-Semitism in its analysis of oppressions. She also makes claims that opposing the inclusion of Zionism in social justice movements means the exclusion of Jews. The article has serious conceptual flaws as well as factual inaccuracies that mischaracterize and do a disservice to movements for justice, and, as a result, make accusations of marginalizing Jews that are not rooted in reality. To say, as the author does in her article, that "As a paradigm, intersectionality has failed Jews" makes little sense. As a lens through which to understand multiple dimensions of power - where and how they do or don't intersect or connect - intersectionality does not "fail" any group. Comment: Intersectionality itself is postmodern leftist nonsense. Best to just leave it behind completely. Further, the author writes, "Intersectionality would dictate that the oppression of Palestinians is much worse than the oppression of Jews, and thus a much higher priority.... It is at the end of the day a hierarchical structure, one that creates a hierarchy of oppression and determines levels of threat." Comment: You can have hierarchies of oppression without "intersectionality". Throwing stones pales in comparison to shooting medics and journalists in the head. Intersectionality, a term coined by legal scholar Kimberl Crenshaw, is precisely not about promoting hierarchies of oppression (thereby leaving out the Jews), but is a framework - an analytic tool - that focuses on the multiple effects and overlap of structural oppressions among communities that have been impacted by injustice.

Pope: Abortion Is White Glove Equivalent to Nazi Crimes Truthdig RSS

VATICAN CITY Pope Francis denounced abortion on Saturday as the white glove equivalent of the Nazi-era eugenics program and urged families to accept the children that God gives them.

Francis spoke off-the-cuff to a meeting of an Italian family association, ditching his prepared remarks to speak from the heart about families and the trials they undergo. He lamented how some couples choose not to have any children, while others resort to pre-natal testing to see if their baby has any malformations or genetic problems.

The first proposal in such a case is, Do we get rid of it?' Francis said. The murder of children. To have an easy life, they get rid of an innocent.

Francis recalled that as a child he was horrified to hear stories from his teacher about children thrown from the mountain if they were born with malformations.

Today we do the same thing, he said.

Last century, the whole world was scandalized by what the Nazis did to purify the race. Today, we do the same thing but with white gloves, Francis said.

The pope urged families to accept children as God gives them to us.

Francis has repeated the strict anti-abortion stance of his predecessors and integrated it into his broader condemnation of what he calls todays throw-away culture. He has frequently lamented how the sick, the poor, the elderly and the unborn are considered unworthy of protection and dignity by a society that prizes instead individual prowess.

He has also decried how women are often considered part of this throw-away culture, sometimes forced to prostitute themselves.

How many of you pray for these women who are thrown away, for these women who are used, for these girls who have to sell their own dignity to have a job? Francis asked during his morning homily Friday.

Francis has dedicated much of his pontificate to preaching about families, marriage and the problems that families today encounter. He is expected to highlight these issues during his August trip to Ireland where hell close out the Catholic Churchs big family rally.

14 Signs That Your Partner Has A Shortage of Emotional Intelligence Awareness Act

Emotional intelligence is defined as the inability to identify and manage your own emotions and the emotions of others. An important aspect of any relationship, our emotions along with our ability to adequately identify, express and manage them can make or break a relationship.

On one hand, a healthy ability to express ones emotions can lead to a deep and intense connection between two people, understanding one another at their most vulnerable. However, those that fail to demonstrate this level of emotional intelligence will, inevitably, build a wall between themselves and others.

Do you feel as though there is a divide between yourself and your partner? Is your relationship lacking something, and you believe it comes back to your ability to emotionally connect with one another? Do you feel as though your partner is out of control, or they fail to exhibit any emotions at all? If your partner is lacking emotional intelligence, this may actually be hindering your relationships ability to move to the next level. If any of the aforementioned descriptions sound familiar, read on to find out more.

Here are 14 signs that your partner lacks emotional intelligence:

#1 They struggle to maintain friendships.

Those among us with higher emotional intelligence levels are prepared to create deep, connected relationships with others. These connections are built on understanding, compassion and the ability to support one another during lifes struggles. Those who lack this emotional intelligence are incapable of developing these deep connections, which can make it difficult to maintain friendships. As the people they meet seek something deeper and more meaningful, they fail to rise to their expectations. While some will stick around, others may simply move on seeking friendships that can fulfill these needs.

#2 They are unable to sympathize with others.

In order to truly feel sympathy, and connect in that compassionate manner, one must be able to not only recognize but comprehend the feelings that the other individual is experiencing at the time. Sympathy is the act of acknowledging how someone is feeling at any given time and reflecting concern for their emotional state. Unable to recognize emotion within themselves or others, those with low emotional intelligence fail to understand the emotions of others and therefore are incapable of feeling sympathy and compassion.

#3 They are often experiencing high levels of stress.

When someone fails to express their emotions effectively, burying them away but not actually dealing with them, they can build up and...

Possible attempted terror attack in Moscow: Taxi rams into Mexican tourists Signs of the Times

A Moscow taxi driver lost control of his car and drove his vehicle onto a crowded sidewalk on Saturday afternoon. At least seven people were injured, including two Mexican nationals, who had come to Russia for the World Cup. The traffic accident occurred on Ilyinka street located close to Red Square on Saturday, when the driver suddenly accelerated, hit the pedestrians on the sidewalk and crashed into a road sign. "According to preliminary data, the crash occurred when the driver lost control of the car," the police said in a statement. A criminal investigation into the incident was launched, the police added later. Footage from the scene shows the driver fleeing angry pedestrians immediately after the incident. It remained unclear, whether people managed to snatch him or if police got him first.

Eon McLeary and Manuel Ruiz on Documentary The Work and Mental Health in Prison (Audio and Transcript) Truthdig RSS

In this weeks episode of Scheer Intelligence, host and Truthdig Editor in Chief Robert Scheer discusses the new documentary The Work with producer Eon McLeary and with Manuel Manny Ruiz, one of the subjects. The documentary follows members of a group therapy program at Folsom State Prison created by the Inside Circle Foundation, which brings together inmates and non-inmates to work through mental health issues. Its a rare view into the reality of life for the 2.3 million Americans currently behind bars.

Ruiz describes how the program helped all the participants learn to understand and express their feelings, to not fear being vulnerable. The last thing I would ever show anybody is what I considered being vulnerable or weak, he tells Scheer, or what anybody else would say: That guys, you know, kind of soft or weak, or thats easy prey.

McLeary discusses why he wanted to make this documentary, the impact of the program, how its helped inmates avoid conflict when theyre released, and his personal connection to the program.

Listen to the interview in the player above and read the transcript below. Find past episodes of Scheer Intelligence here.

Robert Scheer: Hi, this is Robert Scheer with another edition of Scheer Intelligence, a pretentious title, but the intelligence comes from my guests, not from me. And we have to, like to have a wide-range of guests with different life experience. And what I like about the guests today, theyre involved with a film called The Work, which does not convey, really, the excitement of the film. But its a chance to see inside this huge population of 2.3 million people in one kind of incarceration or another in the United States. And for most people, theyre kind of a throwaway population; out of sight, out of mind; the assumption that theyre criminals, that theyre not, cannot be rehabilitated.

And what this movie does is it visits a program that I think has been in existence for 17 years, which comes from the opposite way: it says, you know, these are important human beings; they have souls, they have feelings, they have experience; and they can be rehabilitated. And its a program thats been s...

London Grenfell Tower disaster commemoration

From daily News Line in Britain:

Saturday, 16 June 2018 15,000-strong Grenfell anniversary march

15,000 workers and youth took part in an emotional silent march through west London on Thursday evening to mark the first anniversary of the Grenfell Tower inferno that claimed 72 lives and injured many others.

The march was headed by young people with the banner Grenfell Youth Know the Truth! Justice is Coming and there were large numbers of youth on the march. As well as Justice4Grenfell and Grenfell United banners, there were ones from Barnet Unison, Camden Unison and University College Hospital Unison, and Barnet Teachers Association.

There was an Islington Labour Party banner and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and shadow home secretary Dianne Abbot joined the march. Wearing green sashes, they signed the Memorial Wall with the phrase, We are all together. London Mayor Sadiq Khan also joined the march.

One dramatic banner with an image of the flaming tower read Real Criminals wear suits 14-6-2017.

As well as placards demanding Justice for Grenfell, there were home-made placards shaped as hearts and one with the slogan Theresa May free bungee jump, no strings attached.

The silent march passed a firefighters guard of honour at Ladbroke Grove and many stopped to shake hands with firefighters lining the road, and giving them big hugs.

News Line spoke to several of the participants as they gathered by the memorial wall before the march. Unison member Rodney Johnson, a support worker from Greenford, said: I came to pay my respects to the dead and honour those who are grieving and are affected by it. Also its my birthday today, so rather then spending the day celebrating me, Id rather be spending the day celebrating those who come out to remember...

7 Ways to Tell If You Have Truly Met Your Soulmate Awareness Act

Sure, we all want to meet our soulmates right? But what if we are confusing it for something it isnt?

When you meet your soulmate, the connection is not like anything else, or so we are told. How do you know that you have really met your soulmate? What if you dont feel it? Sure, there are lots of questions to be asked, we all know this but if you really want to know you will find the things below in this person.

7 Ways to Tell If You Have Really Met Your Soulmate or Not:

1. There is an energy drawing the two of you together.

You are both instantly drawn to one another. This is a kind of connection that cannot be explained but is much deeper than youve ever felt before. Its like there is a point between the two of you pushing you both closer and closer towards one another.

2. Even when you part ways you still seem to come together.

Even when you both go your separate ways, you still run into each other. You are still always coming across each other in the most unexpected places. This is the Universe sending you hints.

3. You think of this person often.

No matter how hard you try, this person always comes to mind and no matter what you have done to one another there is an overwhelming sense of positivity in those thoughts. Even years later this person might still cross your mind, yes, sometimes soulmates dont end up together. Life works in mysterious ways.

4. This person makes you feel more complete.

You feel more complete when you are with this person. Dont get me wrong, you are already whole but this is the best means of describing the feeling you have when youre with him or her. Its like they are a part of you.

5. You have an instant emotional connection.

You both instantly feel something for each other. There is an emotional connection. This is not something you will feel with anyone else.

6. Your connection is not one-sided.

You both feel the same way. You do not feel more for this person than he or she feels for you. If the connection is one sided it is not a true connection.

7. This person pushes you to be a better person.

Despite Cancer, McCain Maintains His Maverick Ways Truthdig RSS

PHOENIX Sen. John McCains legacy was thrust into focus nearly one year ago when he announced his brain cancer diagnosis. The six-term Senator and decorated Vietnam War veteran is now fighting the illness from his beloved Arizona, and filling the role of one of the few Congressional Republican voices to publicly rebuke Trump administration decisions.

Yet the question of what happens if McCain steps down from office before 2022 is a lingering one, casting an uncomfortable haze around the future of a seat that cant quite ever be filled.

John McCain is a one-of-a-kind politician, and theres no replacing him, said Stan Barnes, an Arizona Republican consultant. No one serving in political office today remembers a time when John McCain was not representing us in Washington.

Some Arizona Republicans have criticized conversations about the future of McCains seat as inappropriate. But reflections around the 81-year-old statesmans life, legacy and status as a national political figure have resurfaced via a new HBO documentary, John McCain: For Whom the Bell Tolls, and his new memoir, The Restless Wave.

The McCains have a family retreat south of Sedona, Arizona, along tree-lined Oak Creek. Daughter Meghan McCain was married there.

She said on KTARs Mac and Gaydos radio show Tuesday that shes been trying to visit her father every other weekend. She said hes strong, walking, talking and hanging in there.

Everybodys just dealing with it the best they can, Meghan McCain said.

Following a decorated military career that included spending more than five years in prison camps, McCain entered the political arena in the early 1980s. He went from the House of Representatives to being elected to the Senate in 1986, following Barry Goldwater who retired. McCain gained a reputation as a lawmaker who was willing to stick to his convictions rather than go along with party leaders. It is a streak that draws a mix of respect and ire.

Matt Salmon, a former Arizona congressman, said McCain was instrumental in his own political career along with countless other Arizona Republicans. Much like Goldwater, McCains been the godfather of Arizona politics for decades.

Salmon said McCain exemplifies how to stand up for ones convictions and constituents regardless of the wants of party leadership. During the late 1990s, Salmon drove a successful effort to remove Newt Gingrich as Speaker.

I dont know that I wouldve had the courage to go do something like that without a maverick like John McCain paving the way, he said.

When Salmon was elected to Congress, McCain, as a mentor, was supportive, loyal and quick to share his dry sense of humor.

He said to me, Congratulations Matt, now youre part of...

Migrant controversy has Merkel's govt falling apart Signs of the Times

Angela Merkel's conservative alliance may splinter in a row over immigration, an ally of the German chancellor said on Friday, as the third party in her fragile government suggested its patience was wearing thin. The dispute between Merkel's Christian Democrats (CDU) and their Bavarian Christian Social Union (CSU) sister party threatens the future of her coalition three months after it took office, just as European divisions over migrants are causing rifts between EU partners. "I believe (Merkel) will try to the very end to find unity in the matter," said CDU home affairs spokesman Mathias Middelberg. Asked if the alliance with the CSU could shatter, he told Deutschlandfunk radio: "That can't be fully ruled out." Middelberg said the vast majority of CDU politicians backed Merkel in wanting to find a European solution to the migration issue in the two weeks ahead of a June 28-29 EU summit. But the CSU does not want to wait and is urging Germany to take unilateral action. Bavaria was on the frontline of a migration crisis in 2015, when an "open door" policy adopted by Merkel led to around a million refugees flooding into Germany. Many conservatives held that policy responsible for a surge in support for the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD), the main opposition party since national elections in September.

Israeli analyst tells Sputnik: US intel agencies are waging war on Trump for going against the establishment Signs of the Times

US President Donald Trump's standoff with the intelligence community leadership formed under the previous Obama, Bush and Clinton administrations continues, Israeli analyst Avigdor Eskin told Sputnik, stressing that Trump is the first president to have risen up against the US establishment. Ex-CIA and ex-NSA chief Michael Vincent Hayden has written nothing short of a manifesto, calling upon his former colleagues, including John Brennan, James Clapper, Jim Comey and Robert Mueller, to oppose US President Donald Trump, says Israeli political analyst Avigdor Eskin, commenting on Hayden's book "The Assault on Intelligence: American National Security in an Age of Lies." In his opus the retired Air Force general and former intelligence chief has raised the alarm over Donald Trump's new approach and new foreign strategy, which differ a lot from those of his predecessors. "We in the intelligence world have dealt with obstinate and argumentative presidents through the years," Hayden wrote in his op-ed for The New York Times. "But we have never served a president for whom ground truth really doesn't matter." Comment: In other words, they've never dealt with a president who called them on their BS. Furthermore, Hayden hinted that the US president is up in arms about the American intelligence community: "[Trump] humiliated the attorney general, undercut his national security adviser and engaged in personal vendettas against senior FBI officials." Comment: Trump has a right to self-defense... Likewise, the former intelligence chief is discontent with Trump's attitude towards Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe. Speaking at ABC's "This Week" in late May, Hayden said that the US president "is simply trying to delegitimatize the Mueller investigation, the FBI, the Department of Justice" presuming that Trump "is willing to throw almost anything against the wall."

This Apple Cider Vinegar And Cayenne Pepper Remedy Can Cure Your Knee, Bone and Other Joint Pain Awareness Act

While we do not often realize it, there is a natural alternative for just about everything. Many different cultures and generations used things like cayenne pepper and so forth to heal their bodies long before actual medical treatment was available.

Dont get me wrong some of the things you find online are completely bogus, you have to really look into what you might be doing to ensure it is right for you. If you are suffering from joint pain or something of the sort this remedy might be able to help you big time. That being if you are willing to give it a shot.

This remedy calls for very few ingredients and works wonders. One of those ingredients is red cayenne pepper. This is beneficial because it is an anti-inflammatory herb and does not irritate the stomach. These peppers are full of capsaicin. It is listed as a food with cancer-fighting properties as well according to the Cancer Treatment Centers of America.

It fights off inflammation and can be used to treat painful sensory nerve disorders like Arthritis and psoriasis. Some even seem to think it can aid in weight loss and Dr. Mercola even claims it can help stop the spread of prostate cancer altogether.

Another ingredient in this remedy is Apple Cider Vinegar or ACV. ACV can help with diabetes, weight loss, sore throat, skin irritations and so much more. Adding it to this recipe was a no-brainer for sure. The power of these things combined will really help work wonders on your joint pain. While I also suggest ingesting some cayenne and ACV along with doing as follows you will see results if you give it some time.

ACV and Cayenne Pepper Remedy:

Ingredients:

4 Tablespoons of Cayenne Pepper Powder

2 Cups of ACV

1 Inch of Grated Ginger

1 Cup of Olive Oil

(You can also add more olive oil or a little more cayenne if you see fit for consistency.)

Directions:

Mix all of these things together as best you can. I would begin with the ACV, olive oil, and cayenne adding in the ginger last. Once you have mixed this properly it will be basically a paste.

Apply this paste to the affected area two or three times a day for 30 minutes. Rinse it with warm water after and pat it dry. You can store what is left in the fridge but be sure to stir before each use.

Yes, it is as simple as that. Will you be giving this remedy a try? Have you ever heard of this one before?

After IG report, Trump says he beat Clinton and Bush dynasties, now he's beating 'dishonest intelligence' agencies Signs of the Times

President Donald Trump said Friday he was in the process of fighting a war with agencies like the FBI, citing their "very dishonest" behavior in their investigations. "I'm actually proud because I beat the Clinton dynasty. I beat Bush dynasty, and now I guess hopefully I'm in the process of beating very dishonest intelligence," Trump said. He said the FBI betrayed both Republicans and Democrats in the 2016 presidential election. "[W]hat they did was incredible and a real insult to millions of people that voted in that election on both sides," Trump said. The president repeatedly attacked Comey, calling him "the ringleader of this whole den of thieves" at the FBI and said his actions were likely "criminal." He also mocked Comey for using a private email address to conduct business on the investigation of Hillary Clinton's use of private email to conduct business. "He had a private e-mail," Trump marveled. "That was of all the things, that wasn't to me maybe the most interesting. But it was probably the funniest." He said that the Inspector General report released Thursday was "pretty good" but "blew it at the very end" by saying that the investigations were not tainted by bias.

How Each Zodiac Sign Breaks Other Peoples Hearts Awareness Act

We all react to heartbreak differently, that much is quite apparent, but did you know we all break hearts differently as well? While no two heartbreaks are the exact same it seems each zodiac sign has their own pattern.

Below I am going to go over how each zodiac sign tends to break the hearts of others. Sometimes these things will be on purpose and other times the person might not even be aware that he or she is doing these things. It is important to understand how we work and what influence the stars have over that. Through understanding, you can overcome.

Aries

The Aries gets bored easily so when it comes to breaking hearts he or she usually just let people too close too fast only to want to move on later. They dont do this to hurt others but it does hurt others. People just dont react to things the same ways that they do and it can cause a lot of heartache for the person who is being moved on from.

Taurus

The Taurus breaks hearts in ways most people are not used to. They lash out and hurt the people they care about far more often than they should. Because they struggle with opening up once they do the floodgates really erupt. The Taurus overly emotional response to things is not something everyone can handle and to a lot of people, it can be heartbreaking.

Gemini

The Gemini is a bit too inconsistent for some people. He or she has a lot of conflicting traits that can cause some people to wonder what their true intentions and emotions really are. This kind of thing really hurts a relationship, if the person you love doesnt know that you love them they are going to end up having their heart broken time and time again whether you realize that is what is happening or not.

Cancer

The Cancer is a sign that lets those close know far more than they should. Oversharing things about your relationship with friends and family digs a hole for your significant other. Things that he or she wants to remain private with shouldnt come up or be shared. This kind of thing makes them feel betrayed and in the end, will break their heart.

Leo

The Leo is too cocky for his or her own good. This makes all of those who care for him or her feel inferior. We can only put up with feeling not good enough for so long, eventually, it starts causing us to burst at the seams. This will break someones heart if you are not careful.

Virgo

The Virgo breaks hearts by not allowing his or herself to get emotionally invested. The Virgo likes to not commit as often as possible. Because of this people get their hopes up only to be let down.

Libra

The Libra is a bit too playful for his or her own good. You like to play with the emotions of others and you also tend to make people wait for you when you have no intention of actually showing up. This is not a game, you can and are really hurting people t...

Necessity to Expose Israels Self-indictments in Gaza Protests Dissident Voice

In May 2018 Gaza demonstrations, by its arrogant and aggressive stance toward legitimate demands of a people it has oppressed for decades, Israel indicted itself several times, validated Palestinian actions, and exposed its tyrannical manner. Translating Israels self-indictments to actions by the world community is an obligatory challenge for those who comprehend Israels oppressive policies.

One self-indictment

Israels effort to divert attention from its oppression by posing the protests as Hamas instigated and orchestrated. Kudos to an authority that coalesces a subjugated people and enables vocalization of legitimate demands to their oppressor. The Israeli government showed that Hamas is a well-organized authority, which has support of the Palestinian people, and by not engaging with this recognized authority, Israel deliberately closes all avenues to a peaceful resolution of the crises it has caused.

Regardless of who organized the demonstrations, the Gazans had legitimate demands to which any democratic government would respond with we hear your words, and will make amends. Israel replied with bullets, killing and wounding harmless demonstrators, causing more grief, and instilling more fear. Dubiously claiming that most of the casualties were Hamas militants is another self-indictment. Does Israel have the right to maim anyone it does not like?

History explains the demands of the Gazan Palestinians

Coastal territory awarded to the Palestinians in the United Nations Partition Plan extended to Ashdod, 38 kilometers above Gaza. Contrary to Israels claim of being attacked in the 1948 war, the Egyptian army tried to protect the Palestinian state and refrained from entering into territory awarded to the Jewish state. Egypts army stopped at Ashdod, crossed the Negev, proceeded to defend Beer Sheeva, which had also been awarded to a Palestinian state, and continued through Palestinian territory to safeguard Hebron. The Egyptian army did not try to occupy territory awarded to Ben Gurions government. Regard Al-Majdal, one of many towns in Palestinian territory, captured by Israel.

In August 1950, Israel expelled and trucked Al-Majdals 1000-2000 inhabitants to Gaza. According to Eyal Kafkafi (1998): Segregation or integration of the Israeli Arabs two concepts in MapaiInternational Journal of Middle East Studies 30: 347-367, David Ben-Gurion and Moshe Dayan promoted the expulsion, while Pinhas Lavon, secretary-general of the Histadrut, wished to turn the town into a productive example of equal opportunity for the Arabs. The Egyptian-Israel Mixed Armistice Commission ruling that the Arabs transferred from Al-Majdal should be returned to Israel was never fulfilled. Why?

Secret ET Global Takedown or Another Internecine Illuminati War? Operation Disclosure

Secret ET Global Takedown or just another Internecine Illuminati War?

The current massive rise in populism in America is obviously an emergent byproduct of the worldwide Internet, the New Gutenberg Press and this new populism is now deeply challenging the power and control of the Ruling Cabal. But is it just another internecine war between individual Illuminati sub-groups fighting for supremacy over the rest? Or is it actually a serious challenge to displace the Illuminati itself, a secret Cosmic Space War against the Illuminati and all its sub-groups?

By Preston James, Ph.D
June 12, 2018




by Preston James

When I was briefed on Secret Space War matters over 20 years ago by a highly connected Intel man, it was not significant to what I was involved in at the time and I was unable to see much relevance to fully integrate it. To me it was irrelevant and just another set of defense contractor rip-offs of taxpayers and the use of Black funds obtained from illegal drug trafficking and weapon sales to dictators.

At that time the Secret Space War Fleet was just being assembled to run out of the four corners area of the USA from several Beyond-Black well camouflaged secret Military bases, all linked to Deep Underground Military Bases by high speed trains in an underground tunnel networking system connecting them.

Now many years later the Secret Space War Program runs in full functional mode with capabilities far beyond normal everyday societal expectations or awareness, perhaps best described in the fantasy content of Hollywood movies about Alien ETs, US Star Fleets, and secret space wars.

So now in the last several years, as all this informa...

The 5 Wisest Zodiac Signs Of All They Can Never Be Deceived! Awareness Act

There is no denying that some zodiac signs are a bit wiser than others. While many of them are quirky and confusing some are old souls moving about in this world with lots of knowledge to share.

The zodiac consists of 12 signs, we are going to go over 5 of those signs today. These 5 signs are the ones that you dont hear as much about. They are wise, strong, and powerful but often stick to themselves. Each and every zodiac sign has a number of strengths and a number of weaknesses. All of these have their wise minds in common. Do you think your sign will be one of them?

Taurus

The Taurus is cautious, practical, and purposeful. They think through just about everything they do within reason. While it might not sound like much their wisdom is something that could change the world. When it comes to making the important decisions in life the Taurus does not tread lightly.

Virgo

While you might not think much of the Virgo he or she is often much wiser than expected. The Virgo is very balanced and fair when assessing things and quite methodical and efficient in general. This sign thinks before acting rather than the opposite.

Libra

While the Libra is a bit too indecisive for his or her own good it is made up for in other ways. People in this sign are gentle, rational and able to socialize just fine. They are deeply connected with the world around them and because of that their wisdom knows no bounds.

Aquarius

Personally, I think this is the wisest sign of them all. The Aquarius is intellectual, independent, and rational. This sign does not let his or her emotions get the best of them and makes decisions based on their value. Most people just dont know how to act in this manner.

Pisces

While the Pisces does go with the flow, for the most part, he or she is also very compassionate and intuitive. They have a much more developed thinking process than most other people and they really like to use it. They are constantly working to develop themselves further and that in itself is quite wise.

Luckily, radiation destroyed Provine's tumor. He got a second chance. That's when Provine decided it was time for him to eat right and take control of his own health. He knew his body was full of toxins. It needed to heal itself. One way to do that, he decided, was to start growing his own food.

Israel's secret history of assassinations Signs of the Times

Israeli television recently aired a video of two Israeli soldiers filming themselves in the act of shooting a Palestinian protester at the Gaza boundary while cheering. Filming one's own crimes against humanity - shooting Palestinians for sport - suggests a sense of security in never being held accountable. Even more evidence of this impunity is apparent in Rise and Kill First: The Secret History of Israel's Targeted Assassinations by veteran Israeli journalist Ronen Bergman, staff writer for The New York Times Magazine. Prosecutors at the International Criminal Court might want to consider this book Exhibit A if Israeli government and military officials are ever indicted for war crimes. It contains open admissions of guilt in plotting and executing extralegal assassinations in violation of international law. "Since World War II, Israel has assassinated more people than any other country in the Western world," Bergman writes. In many cases, these so-called targeted killings over the last two decades also involved the deaths of nearly a thousand bystanders, according to Bergman's calculations - those numbers, however, fail to include the tens of thousands killed in overt acts of war and collective punishment that mostly go unmentioned in this book.

Sudden optimism Signs of the Times

Off the top of my head I have a hard time thinking of anything sleazier than smearing peace talks in order to gain partisan political points, but that has indeed been the theme of the last few days when it comes to the Singapore summit. Liberal pundits everywhere have been busily circulating the narrative that Kim Jong-Un "played" Trump by getting him to temporarily halt military drills in exchange for suspended nuclear testing. It was the most fundamental beginning of peace negotiations and a slight deescalation in tensions on the Korean Peninsula, but the way they talk about it you'd think Kim had taken off from Singapore in Air Force One with the keys to Fort Knox and Melania on his lap. I'm not sure how far up the military-industrial complex's ass one's head needs to be to think that one single step toward peace is a gigantic take-all-the-chips win for the impoverished North Korea, but many of Trump's political enemies are taking it even further. Senate Democrats have introduced a bill to make it more difficult for Trump to withdraw US troops from South Korea, because while you can always count on Capitol Hill to make it incredibly easy for a president to deploy military personnel around the globe, giving that same office the power to bring troops home is a completely different matter.

Understanding Jewish Power and who helped create a war-addicted America Signs of the Times

I recently was asked to speak at an online conference entitled Deep Truth: Encountering Deep State Lies. My panel addressed Understanding Zionism: Deconstructing the Power Paradigm and my own topic was How Jewish Power Sustains the Israel Narrative. Working on my presentation, I was forced to confront the evolution of my own views on both the corruption of government in the United States and the ability of powerful domestic lobbies to deliberately distort the perception of national interests to benefit foreign countries even when that activity does terrible damage to the U.S. My personal journey began half a century ago. I became part of the U.S. national security state after being drafted for the Vietnam War when I graduated from college in 1968. I was at the time, vaguely pro-war, having bought into the media argument that international communism was mounting a major threat in southeast Asia. I also found the anti-war student movement distasteful because I was acquainted with many of its spokesmen and knew that they were chiefly motivated by a desire to avoid the draft, not due to any perception that the war itself was wrong or misguided. I knew a lot about the Punic Wars but precious little about former French Indochina and I suspect that those chanting "Ho-ho-Ho Chi Minh" might have known even less that I did.

Watchdog rips Comey, but bias didn't taint Clinton probe Signs of the Times

A long-awaited report by the Justice Department's watchdog Thursday found no indication that political bias affected decisions in the FBI's 2016 investigation into Hillary Clinton's email server, but the review criticized agents and ex-FBI Director James Comey for violating bureau norms during the probe. The department's inspector general turned up fresh evidence of FBI officials exchanging messages critical of President Donald Trump and of leaking to the media, and the report faulted the FBI for several weeks of inaction following the September 2016 discovery of emails relevant to its investigation on a laptop belonging to former Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner, who was married to a top Clinton aide. Comey was singled out for withering criticism by Inspector General Michael Horowitz, including accusations of insubordination against top Justice Department officials and of making "a serious error of judgment" in notifying Congress shortly before the 2016 election that the FBI was re-opening its Clinton email probe. Comey later reiterated his recommendation that she not face charges, but Clinton has said the letter nonetheless helped cause her loss.

At least 17 people were killed as an explosion rocked a meeting of Taliban and Afghan security forces, gathering during an unprecedented ceasefire for the Eid holiday, in the eastern province of Nangarhar, a local official said. Casualties include Taliban, Afghan security forces, and civilians, Attaullah Khogyani, spokesman for the provincial governor of Nangarhar, said. The timing of the bombing appears to be significant. On Saturday, Taliban members entered the Afghan capital, Kabul urging people to come forward and take selfies with them. The unusual move reportedly occurred elsewhere in the country, as photos and videos on social media showed Taliban fighters giving hugs to locals and Afghan forces across several provinces.

Israel: Limit to helium gas supplied to Gaza Strip despite being vital to hospitals Signs of the Times

Israel has limited the entry of helium gas to the Gaza Strip, citing Palestinian "terrorist elements" and claiming they use it for Molotov cocktails. However, delivery of the gas is necessary for medical purposes. In a Tuesday announcement, Israel's Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT), Maj-Gen. Kamil Abu Kokun, said that if the use of helium gas for attacks does not cease, the entire supply of helium will stop and "the responsibility would fall on the Hamas terrorist group's regime." "The Hamas terror organization does not hesitate to take extreme measures, including exploiting humanitarian means to carry out terrorist acts, despite Israel's efforts to prevent a civil deterioration in the Gaza Strip and the provision of humanitarian needs," the coordinator said in his statement, as quoted by The Times of Israel. However, a complete halt of helium gas to the Gaza Strip could be detrimental, as the gas is vital for medical purposes including magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machines which use it for cooling.

Founder of Theranos, 'revolutionary' blood-test startup, charged with fraud Signs of the Times

Elizabeth Holmes, founder and CEO of the blood-testing health technology company Theranos, and her business partner, have been indicted on charges of wire fraud and of defrauding investors, patients and doctors. Holmes and former Theranos COO Ramesh "Sunny" Balwani were charged with two counts of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and nine counts of wire fraud, said the Acting United States Attorney Alex G. Tse in San Francisco, California. The indictment was unsealed Friday, hours after Holmes resigned as CEO of the Palo Alto-based company. Balwani, who served as one of the company's directors, president and chief operating officer, left Theranos in 2016. According to the indictment, Holmes and Balwani "not only defrauded investors, but also consumers who trusted and relied upon their allegedly-revolutionary blood-testing technology." The government claims the two had known that many claims about Theranos' revolutionary blood analysis technology were false.

Can Spains Socialists Avoid Their Past Pitfalls? The Fifth Column

(FPIF) As a new, Socialist-led government takes over in Spain, freshly minted Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez faces at least two daunting tasks: 1) cleaning up the wreckage wrought by years of European Union-enforced austerity, and 2) resolving the Catalan crisis exacerbated by Madrids violent reaction to last falls independence referendum. Unfortunately, his partys track record is not exactly sterling on either issue.

Sanchez, leader of the Socialist Workers Party (PSOE), patched together parties in Catalonia and the Basque region, plus the leftist Podemos Party, to oust long-time Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy of the right-wing Peoples Party (PP). But is the telegenic former economics professor up to the job, and will his party challenge the economic program of the EUs powerful troika the International Monetary Fund, the European Central Bank, and the European Commission?

The answers to those questions are hardly clear, and in many ways the cross currents and rip tides of Spanish politics still resemble Gerald Brenans classic study of the Civil War, The Spanish Labyrinth.

Too Centrist for Comfort

While the issue that brought Rajoy down was corruption a massive kickback scheme that enriched scores of high-ranking PP members his party was already weakened by the 2015 election, and he has been forced to rely on the conservative Ciudadanos Party based in Catalonia to stay in power. In short, it was only a matter of time before he fell.

Sanchez promises to address the pressing social needs of Spaniards, although he has been vague about what that actually means. But Spain is hurting. While economic growth returned in 2013, unemployment is still at 16.1 percent, and youth joblessness is 35 percent. Rajoy took credit for the economys rebound from the massive financial meltdown in 2008, but theres little evidence that budget cuts and austerity did the trick. The two main engines for growth were cheap oil and a weak currency.

The job growth has mainly been in short term and temp jobs, with lower pay and fewer benefits. Thats not specific to Spain, however. Of the 5.2 million jobs created in the EU between 2013 and 2016, some 2.1 million of them have been short term, mini jobs that have been particularly hard on young people. Many continue to live at home with their aging parents, and 400,000 have emigrated to other European countries.

Education, health care, and infrastructure have all deteriorated under a blizzard of budget cuts, and S...

A serious hurdle for CRISPR technology: Two studies find edited cells might cause cancer Signs of the Times

Editing cells' genomes with CRISPR-Cas9 might increase the risk that the altered cells, intended to treat disease, will trigger cancer, two studies published on Monday warn - a potential game-changer for the companies developing CRISPR-based therapies. In the studies, published in Nature Medicine, scientists found that cells whose genomes are successfully edited by CRISPR-Cas9 have the potential to seed tumors inside a patient. That could make some CRISPR'd cells ticking time bombs, according to researchers from Sweden's Karolinska Institute and, separately, Novartis. CRISPR has already dodged two potentially fatal bullets - a 2017 claim that it causes sky-high numbers of off-target effects was retracted in March, and a report of human immunity to Cas9 was largely shrugged off as solvable. But experts are taking the cancer-risk finding seriously.

Use of DNA Database to Solve Cold Cases Stirs Controversy Truthdig RSS

SALT LAKE CITYA microscopic thread of DNA evidence in a public genealogy database led California authorities to declare this spring they had caught the Golden State Killer, the rapist and murderer who had eluded authorities for decades.

Emboldened by that breakthrough, a number of private investigators are spearheading a call for amateur genealogists to help solve other cold cases by contributing their own genetic information to the same public database. They say a larger array of genetic information would widen the pool to find criminals who have eluded capture.

The idea is to get people to transfer profiles compiled by commercial genealogy sites such as Ancestry.com and 23andMe onto the smaller, public open-source database created in 2010, called GEDmatch. The commercial sites require authorities to obtain search warrants for the information; the public site does not.

But the push is running up against privacy concerns.

When these things start getting used by law enforcement, its very important that we ensure that to get all of the benefit of that technology we dont end up giving up our rights, said American Civil Liberties Union legal fellow Vera Eidelman.

She argues that when someone uploads their own DNA profile they arent just adding themselves theyre adding everyone in their family, including dead relatives and those who havent been born yet. She also said DNA mining could lead to someones predisposition to mental and health issues being revealed.

That one click between Ancestry and 23andMe and GEDmatch is actually a huge step in terms of who has access to your information, Eidelman said.

This month, DNA testing service MyHeritage announced that a security breach revealed details about over 92 million accounts. The information did not include genetic data but nonetheless reinforced anxieties.

Nevertheless, the effort is gaining steam with some genetic genealogy experts and investigators.

The shared DNA profiles could end up being the key to solving one of these cold cases and getting the family closure and getting someone really dangerous off the streets, said CeCe Moore, the head of the genetic genealogy unit at the DNA company Parabon NanoLabs.

Shes uploaded her personal genetic information to the public database and wants it to become a larger repository of information for genealogy hobbyists and investigators alike. Separately, Parabon NanoLabs has also uploaded DNA data from 100 unsolved crime scenes in hopes of finding suspects.

Genetic genealogy has traditionally been used to map family histories. Labs analyze hundreds of thousands of genetic markers in an individuals DNA, compare them with others and link up families based on similarities. The public database was created to compare family trees and genetic profiles between the commercial sites, whi...

American History for Truthdiggers: The Jeffersonian Enigma (1800-1808) Truthdig RSS

Editors note: The past is prologue. The stories we tell about ourselves and our forebears inform the sort of country we think we are and help determine public policy. As our current president promises to Make America great again, this moment is an appropriate time to reconsider our past, look back at various eras of United States history and re-evaluate Americas origins. When, exactly, were we great?

Below is the 11th installment of the American History for Truthdiggers series, a pull-no-punches appraisal of our shared, if flawed, past. The author of the series, Danny Sjursen, an active-duty major in the U.S. Army, served military tours in Iraq and Afghanistan and taught the nations checkered, often inspiring past when he was an assistant professor of history at West Point. His war experiences, his scholarship, his skill as a writer and his patriotism illuminate these Truthdig posts.

The revolution of 1800 was as real a revolution in the principles of our government as that of [17]76 was in its form; not effected indeed by the sword, as that, but by the rational and peaceable instrument of reform, the suffrage of the people. Thomas Jefferson in an 1819 letter to Judge Spencer Roane

Court Reinstates Californias Right-to-Die Law Truthdig RSS

LOS ANGELESA state appeals court has reinstated at least for now Californias law allowing terminally ill people to end their lives.

The Fourth District Court of Appeals in Riverside issued an immediate stay Friday putting the End of Life Option back into effect. The court also gave opponents of its decision until July 2 to file objections.

The law allows adults to obtain a prescription for life-ending drugs if a doctor has determined that they have six months or less to live.

Riverside County Superior Court Judge Daniel Ottolia declared the law unconstitutional last month, stating that it had been adopted illegally because lawmakers passed it during a special Legislative session called to address other matters.

Ottolia didnt address the issue of whether its proper for people to end their lives.

Right-to-die advocates hailed Fridays action.

This stay is a huge win for many terminally ill Californians with six months or less to live because it could take years for the courts to resolve this case, Kevin Daz, national director of legal advocacy for Compassion & Choices, said in a statement.

Thankfully, this ruling settles the issue for the time being, but we know we have a long fight ahead before we prevail.

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, who had asked the appeals court to stay Ottolias ruling, also praised the decision.

This ruling provides some relief to California patients, their families, and doctors who have been living in uncertainty while facing difficult health decisions, Becerra said. Todays court ruling is an important step to protect and defend the End of Life Option Act for our families across the state.

Patients Rights Action Fund, which opposes laws allowing people to take their lives, did not respond to a message placed after business hours Friday. In previously discussing the law, the groups executive director, Matt Valliere, said, The people of California, especially the vulnerable, deserve protection and support, not assisted suicide.

The Life Legal Defense Foundation, American Academy of Medical Ethics and several physicians were among those who sued to have the law overturned.

Their lawsuit, Ahn vs. Hestrin, claims the law violates the due process and equal protection guarantees of the U.S. and California constitutions because it fails to make rational distinctions between terminally ill adults and the vast majority of Californians not covered by the act.

The suit also claims the Legislature did not have authority to pass the law during a special session limited to other issues.

Becerra argued that the law, which took effect in 2016, was legitimately passed during a special legislative session dedicated to health issues.

Poor Peoples Campaign Would Have Cheered Robert Kennedy Truthdig RSS

This month, two events combine to remind me of my early days in Washington, D.C., my work for Robert F. Kennedy, and my recollection of the Poor Peoples March on Washington in March 1968, led by the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and other leaders of poor peoples organizations to gain economic justice. That event was only months before King and Kennedy were killed by the gunfire of deranged murderers.

Later that year, near Christmas, I wanted to buy my law partner a gift. I went to the Georgetown gallery that was Sister Mary Coritas exclusive store in Washington. I was a fan of the social activist Catholic nuns work on silkscreen, usually on themes of peace and justice, affordable pop art. It being a quiet day, the owner took me around his shop to discuss possible purchases. Nothing struck me as right for her, so he asked, What is his background? Does he like Robert Kennedy?

Shes a she, I replied, and she probably does, but I worked for him, so I certainly am a fan. Why do you ask?

Then I have the perfect poster for you, he said, and directed me to the back of his shop, where he pointed to the poster shown below.

It was perfect, a Mary Corita I loved, including a dated (June 8, 1968) New York Times op-ed by the eloquent playwright Arthur Miller, with a message about my former boss and the millions of poor people in America that resonated. Sister Marys signature was painted in small white script on the red-and-blue poster. Above her name, she had printed in her typical informal script: gods not dead hes bread, and alongside that script, They say the poor have it hard well the hardest thing they have is us. Rushed the creation surely was, but brilliant nonetheless.

I must have it, I said. I may not give it to my partner, but I would love to have it.

It is the only one I have, he replied, and I will give it to you because it is priceless.

Then he told me this story about the origin of the poster.

The Poor Peoples Campaign had commissioned Sister Mary to create a poster for their use when they came to Washington. She was in town, and we were having breakfast in a neig...

11 Reasons Why She Is Never Going to Leave You, No Matter What Awareness Act

Have you ever wondered why she chose to stick with you? Sure, you think youre an average person but you probably feel like the one who got the better end of the deal, right? Well, youre wrong there are tons of things about you that make you worth sticking around for.

Sure, she might be a bit confusing from time to time but if youre being a good partner it will stand out to her. If you have been wondering what about you might have been something that contributed to her choice of settling down with you the things below might give you a good idea. There is so much that goes into whether or not we think someone is worth being with forever.

11 Reasons Why She Chose To Spend Forever With You:

1. You are willing to compromise.

Unlike others, you were more than willing to go the extra mile for her. When there is conflict, you both work together to come to a solution that works for everyone. This really makes a huge difference in the quality of your relationship.

2. You are good at communicating.

She wants someone she can talk to if there is a problem within the relationship you are able to talk it out. You can come to her if you are upset about something and she can come to you. The both of you mesh so well.

3. You push her to be her best self.

You always encourage her to do the things she wants to do in life. If she mentions wanting to do something to better herself you give her the push she needs to really go through with it. As a couple, you both make sure that everyone is giving their all.

4. You make her feel safe.

When it comes to relationships, we want to feel safe and comfortable. You make her feel like nothing can ever hurt her and that with you around she is content. This is an emotional and mental form of safety and we often dont realize how important it really is.

5. You have fun together.

You both have so much fun with each other. Whether you are going out or staying in you are always able to mix things up. You take the time to make plans and a lot of people refuse to do that.

6. You are always honest with her.

Honesty is something we all look for in those we choose to be with for the rest of our lives. You are honest with her and never lie. Even when something might get you sent to the doghouse you still make sure to be as open and honest as possible.

7. You support her goals and dreams.

You do not hold her back. When it comes to a relationship, we want someone who is going to build us up and you work to do exactly that. You remind her to chase her dreams and always ensure you will be there by her side.

8. You let yourself be vulnerable with her.

You aren...

Baseball-sized hail recorded in Manitoba and Saskatchewan Signs of the Times

Baseball-sized hail can do some serious damage. Manitoba and Saskatchewan got hit with a brutal hailstorm yesterday. Cars are damaged, windows are shattered, and thousands are still without power. Unbelievable photos and videos show enormous chunks of hail raining down from the sky, accompanied by severe winds and thunder. From Ontario's destructive windstorm on Wednesday to the snowstorm in Newfoundland last week, Canada's had a very bizarre start to the summer this year. At this point, no amount of crazy weather can ever surprise a Canadian. Weather Canada has even issued a tornado warning, which remains in effect in parts of Manitoba and Saskatchewan that are near the U.S. border.

White Helmets: Washington resumes funding for major 'regime change' tool in Syria CLG News

White Helmets: Washington resumes funding for major 'regime change' tool in Syria | 16 June 2018 | Washington's decision to resume funding for White Helmets after a brief freeze highlights how important the controversial group is for the US-promoted agenda for regime change, journalists and Syrian conflict observers have told RT. Mike Raddie, co-editor of BSNews and an anti-war activist, told RT how the so-called Syria Civil Defence units - the White Helmets - have been instrumental in the justification of the US strikes on Syria in April of 2017, and the trilateral strikes by the UK, France, and the US in April 2018. Calling the self-styled volunteer organization a clearly "belligerent party" with links to al-Qaeda [al-CIAduh] terrorists, Raddie noted that the group has been actively calling for a "no-fly zone, which obviously means full invasion." Thus, he believes, the State Department decided to release some $6.6mn in previously frozen funding for the White Helmets, just in case another pretext for a strike against Syria or a similar intervention is needed.

Kilauea volcano eruption rains down green crystals Signs of the Times

In the never-ending parade of weird phenomena erupting from Hawaii's Kilauea volcano comes a "rain" of green crystals, which have supposedly been spotted on the ground after falling from the sky. "It is literally raining gems," tweeted Tucson meteorologist Erin Jordan, who posted a photo sent to her by a friend in Hawaii. The gems are also known as olivine, "a common mineral in basaltic lava, which is what this eruption is producing," said Concord University volcanologist Janine Krippner.

The 6 Stages of True Love, According to Neuroscience Awareness Act

When it comes to love, our brains play a huge role in how we connect with one another and who we connect with. While love at first sight is possible or I feel like it is, there are still many stages to love that most people dont bother to take the time to understand.

Just because you are overwhelmingly attracted to someone doesnt mean you are in love with them. In this day and age, we confuse love for infatuation and other things of the sort. Love and lust are nowhere near the same and a lot of us need to be reminded of that from time to time.

Below I am going to go through the many stages of love and what stages we tend to get stuck in or end up leaving one another on. While the last stage is not an easy one to get to if you can hang in there it is beyond worth it. Love is never easy, there is no night in shining armor.

6 Stages of Love and What We Need to Understand About Each of Them:

Stage 1: Attraction

This is the stage where you are just meeting one another and are attracted to the physical appearance of the person before you. You might not have even spoken to them yet but you feel drawn to them. You really feel like there is a connection because your body and mind are pushing you towards him or her due to this attraction.

Stage 2: Dating

At this point, you have both somehow managed to become a couple. Either you worked up the courage to talk to him or her or vice versa. You are a couple but that attraction is still ruling the relationship. You might not even know anything about each other at this point.

Stage 3: Puppy Love

This is the point where you are really overwhelmingly into one another. You want to spend all of your time together and you are pretty obsessive. Your thoughts all revolve around this person and everything you do relates back to them. This stage can be very damning if your partner is not in it with you.

Stage 4: Falling For Each Other

Now, this stage is the one where things begin really heating up. You are not necessarily so obsessed with one another but you are still very much interested. You are learning to love this person in more ways than you thought you would have. Youre both getting used to each other.

Stage 5: Getting to Know Each Other

Once you have begun truly falling for this person, getting to know them comes easily. You want to learn more about each other and you both go above and beyond to learn the important things. Youre getting to know this person and accepting him or her for their true identity rather than trying to change them. This stage can be...

Cop gets swarmed by angry citizens after shooting man in the back as he flees Signs of the Times

An incident that began over an open alcohol container ended with one man in the hospital with two bullet holes in his back, a riot nearly kicking off, and a San Francisco cop under investigation. Over the weekend, as revelers filled the area for the last game of the NBA finals, a police officer spotted a group with open containers of alcohol and targeted them for arrest or extortion. Not wanting to be arrested or extorted for drinking a can of beer in public, a man in the group, identified as 28-year-old Oliver Barcenas took off running. A brief foot chase ensued and during the chase, Barcenas was alleged to have taken out a .45 caliber pistol with an extended magazine. Even though video shows Barcenas was still running away when he allegedly pulled out the weapon, the officer in pursuit opened fire, shooting him in the back-twice-causing him to immediately fall to the ground. "He had a firearm," an officer can be heard saying. "He had like a Tec-9... Dude back people up. There's a gun around here." Police say they found a .45 caliber pistol near the scene. When bystanders saw what happened, all hell broke loose. Immediately after the shooting, an angry crowd began to gather around Barcenas who lay bleeding on the ground. They were recording with their cellphones whilst threatening and yelling at the officer.

Scientists Reveal A Dire Scenario For the Future, And This Is How to Prevent It Awareness Act

We all know the shape this world is in right now is really damning to us all, but do we understand the extent it goes to? Experts believe that if things dont change soon the effects of climate change could be far more devastating than we have ever imagined.

More recent research that was published just a few days ago in the journal Nature goes over the Antarctic Ice Sheet melting rate and how it has increased in recent times. This research covers from 1992 all the way to 2017 and proves that the Antarctic lost over 200 billion tons of ice annually because of the rising temperatures within our oceans. The melting rate has basically tripled and we dont have much time to make a difference.

The abstract of this study goes as follows:

The Antarctic Ice Sheet is an important indicator of climate change and driver of sea-level rise. Here we combine satellite observations of its changing volume, flow and gravitational attraction with modeling of its surface mass balance to show that it lost 2,720 1,390 billion tonnes of ice between 1992 and 2017, which corresponds to an increase in mean sea level of 7.6 3.9 millimeters (errors are one standard deviation). Over this period, ocean-driven melting has caused rates of ice loss from West Antarctica to increase from 53 29 billion to 159 26 billion tonnes per year; ice-shelf collapse has increased the rate of ice loss from the Antarctic Peninsula from 7 13 billion to 33 16 billion tonnes per year. We find large variations in and among model estimates of surface mass balance and glacial isostatic adjustment for East Antarctica, with its average rate of mass gain over the period 19922017 (5 46 billion tonnes per year) being the least certain.

While back in earlier times we were only losing about 49 billion tons per year, this increase is causing a lot of problems. The rapid rate at which ice is melting from the Antarctic Ice Sheet is quite alarming and means we are seeing an increase of half a millimeter in the sea levels every year. For this study, these researchers collectively reviewed 24 recent measurements of Antarctic ice loss pointing out the differences from past measurements and so forth. They were able to produce the most definitive figures yet on the changes occurring in Antarctica.

Beata Csatho, one of the authors for this study told WashingtonPost as follows:

The detailed record shows an acceleration, starting around 2002.

Actually, if you compare 1997-2002 to 2012-2017, the increase is even larger, a factor of...

White House Defends Tearing Children Away From Their Families As Very Biblical Awareness Act

While some very jaw-dropping announcements have come from the White House in recent months, this one takes the cake. Do you think tearing families apart by deporting parents who have children here is somehow justifiable through the Christian Bible? Well, White House officials do.

Just days ago White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders got into a heated argument with reporters and went so far as to say it is very biblical to enforce the law. This being in regards to literally ripping children from their immigrant parents arms under the current zero-tolerance policy in place. You see, earlier that same day Attorney General Jeff Sessions had cited the bible defending the current controversial policy.

Sessions said as follows:

Illegal entry into the United States is a crime, as it should be.

Persons who violate the law of our nation are subject to prosecution. I would cite you to the Apostle Paul and his clear and wise command in Romans 13, to obey the laws of the government because God has ordained them for the purpose of order.

Seems to be twisting a bit now, doesnt he? As if this wasnt enough, Sanders words really took the cake and smashed it right in the faces of everyone here in America. When asked Where does it say in the Bible that its moral to take children away from their mothers? She basically refused to answer and avoided it completely by accusing Acosta (who she was conversing with) of trying to put words in her mouth.

The interview was a very downhill sloping nightmare and basically, her reasoning regardless of biblical use was because its the law which just doesnt sit right with most people. Dont get me wrong, whether you are for immigrants staying here or not I am sure we can all agree seeing families torn apart like this is not a good thing and that we need to work out some means around it. Perhaps this is a topic that makes us a bit salty but when things like this happen we shouldnt run to find a biblical cop out.

This whole interview is a literal shit show. She blames everything on the democrats but the problems are not that simple.

Its wonderful to see people involved and demanding they be heard. There is hope yet, to shut down the agencies that pretend to have families best interests in mind.

border wall construction in progress, California

As we have learned, there seem to be at least two sides to every story. The Brownsville, Texas resettlement facility is dramatically different from this featured one in California, thankfullyand both overseen by the same company; Southwest Keys.

We dont want to see children in cages. This facility illustrates that cages are not required or mandatory.

In time, when Mexico and Latin American countries have settled down, cleaned out the evil and people are no longer seeking asylum in America, the problem will go away.

The immediate solution is the wall, which is in progress. We want to see everyone treated humanely, as the early experiences of children leave a lasting impression on them.

We dont yet know why Senator Merkley was refused access and a tour at the Brownsville facility. It was very suspicious indeed and its a relief to see the opposite conditions. Surely that situation wasnt staged

Why Governments Are Corporations

The purpose of the Final Wakeup Call, is to unite the clans of awakened in a common direction with a common goal. One government for every country, truly of, for and by the people, according to our rightful entitlement of representation, which means, it is part and parcel of ones rights, and not what is currently the case; a de facto corporate Government, operating for the maximum profit of its shareholders, and masquerading as a peoples administration. This system is fraudulent, but it hasnt always been this way. Why were we the people never told about this?

Did you know that our governments, local, city, county, state and federal were not always incorporated? Do you know what it means to be incorporated?

It means the entity is a corporation, a fictitious entity, something made up on paper, and through word-crafting and legal definitions, it becomes an entity, legally defined as a person. If you look up, legal definition of person - https://definitions.uslegal.com/p/person, you may be horrified. Do it, so that you may step into the light of consciousness and be awakened. If corporations are going to be treated as legal persons, they should also have personal accountability, especially as it pertains to human rights abuses.

Beyond Racism, Immigrant Mass Detention Is All About Profit MintPress News

BELLINGHAM, WA While Donald Trumps stepped-up repression of unauthorized migrants has been touted as a get tough policy meant to stem a flood of animals affiliated with transnational criminal groups, his draconian policies remain unlikely to deter desperate asylum-seekers from seeking entry to the United States. Instead, family separations and arbitrary prosecution and incarcerations are upping the scale of trauma suffered by refugees while asylum claims and border-crossings continue to increase.

Trumps Make America Great policies may have resulted in misery for thousands of poor migrants, yet the rise in human suffering has resulted in jackpot prizes for some players at the New York Stock Exchange.

For Toms A. Madrigal, a food systems researcher at Community to Community Development in Bellingham, Washington, these inhumane policies are all about dollars and cents.

Under the Trump Administration, there are no ifs, ands, or buts this is a class war, Madrigal told MintPress News.

SOTT FOCUS: The Truth Perspective: Lord of the Underworld: The Secret Life of Carl Jung Signs of the Times

Carl Jung is a giant of 20th century history and thought, widely regarded as a pioneer of the psychology of the unconscious. His defection from Freud and his ideas like the archetypes of the unconscious are widely known, even if many have not read his works. But there is a hidden side to the man that few are aware of. From visions of the gods to an acceptance of polygamy and a plan to revitalize civilization by returning to the paganism of the past, Jung privately held some ideas that don't appear in his published works - and which may come to many as a shock.

How a Ouija Board influenced a modern murder trial Signs of the Times

A convicted double murderer has won the right to a retrial on the basis that four of the jury had used a Ouija board the night before finding him guilty. Does this mean that the UK judicial system now accepts the evidence of otherworldly agencies in court? Surely not? The word "Ouija" is a combination of the French word "oui" and the German word "ja" and means "yes, yes". All over the ancient world, people have drawn shapes in sand and made prophecies by believing they were channeling data from demonic and spiritual sources. Most often today, Ouija boards are constructed from simple wooden panels painted with letters and numbers and the words "yes" and "no" and generally feature in horror stories as conduits for spirits to communicate with users. A Smithsonian Magazine article informs how the "19th century American obsession with spiritualism and the belief that the dead are able to communicate with the living" attracted millions of adherents before interest peaked in the second half of the 19th century.

Agent Gives Sworn Statement: We Brought Down the Twin Towers Operation Disclosure

Agent Gives Sworn Statement: We Brought Down The Twin Towers On 9/11

Friday, June 15, 2018

Just as we already have known from 17 years ago . when will the farce of such entities of 9/11 Commission, media et al be blown apart? When will people wake up to the fact that they cannot trust governments who LIE? Kudos to this brave man for speaking out at last.

CIA Agent Gives Sworn Statement: We Brought Down The Twin Towers On 9/11
June 13, 2018 -


http://www.thisboss.net/2018/06/

http://www.thisboss.net/author/admin/

A former US government intelligence agent who worked for the CIA during attacks on September 11th, 2001, has given a sworn affidavit stating that 9/11 was an inside job. The ex-CIA agent, whos also an experienced commercial airline pilot, has blown the whistle on the destruction of the World Trade Center buildings, claiming that the three towers were actually brought down by controlled demolitions, and not by passenger planes that were flown by amateur pilots.

Former CIA agent John Lear has not only given a sworn statement as an expert witness, but he has also produced conclusive evidence that disproves the official narrative that the towers were destroyed by airplanes that were highjacked and flown by terrorists.

Speaking under oath, Agent Lear confirms that the WTC buildings in New York were demolished using pre-planted explosives in a carefully orchestrated and well-engineered plot by the United States government and CIA, adding: No Boeing 767 airliners hit the Twin Towers as fraudulently alleged by the government, media, NIST and its contractors His statements have finally confirmed the long standing theory that the Twin Towers were struck by military planes that had been made to resemble passenger jets and a controlled demolition reduced the buildings to rubble afterward. The 3rd plane failed to strike WTC7 as initially intended due to unknown complications, but all three towers...

Manufacturing outrage: Image of crying, caged toddler detained by ICE was faked, child 'caged' by protestors Signs of the Times

A distressing image of a crying toddler locked in a barred cage after purportedly being detained by US immigration officials has gone viral - but despite online claims, it does not actually depict what has been alleged. The image, which shows a little boy crying in a cage as he looks out between its bars, was shared by activist journalist and undocumented migrant Jose Antonio Vargas as a comment on the Trump administration's immigration crackdown on families. In the same thread, Vargas admitted that he came across the photo on a friend's timeline and was still looking for the original source. Nevertheless, the snap quickly went viral with Vargas' post garnering more than 23,000 retweets and many others sharing the image across their own social media accounts.

Genetic studies show previous models of ancient populations in the Americas as 'unrealistically simple' Signs of the Times

A new genetic study of ancient individuals in the Americas and their contemporary descendants finds that two populations that diverged from one another 18,000 to 15,000 years ago remained apart for millennia before mixing again. This historic "re-convergence" occurred before or during their expansion to the southern continent. The study, reported in the journal Science, challenges previous research suggesting that the first people in the Americas split into northern and southern branches, and that the southern branch alone gave rise to all ancient populations in Central and South America.

Coincidence? US resumes funding White Helmets just as Russia warns of yet another false flag chemical attack in Syria Signs of the Times

In what is sure to be a surprise to President Trump's base, who generally don't support further entrenchment in Syria - but not entirely unexpected - the U.S. State Department on Thursday announced that the president had authorized $6.6 million in new funding for the controversial White Helmets group. A State Department spokeswoman announced in a press release that President Trump had authorized $6.6 million to continue what it calls "the vital, life-saving operations of the Syrian Civil Defense, more commonly known as the White Helmets." "The United States Government strongly supports the White Helmets who have saved more than 100,000 lives since the conflict began including victims of Assad's chemical weapons attacks," the press release states.

Pentagon finally admits Russian Mi-17 helicopters often superior to Black Hawks Signs of the Times

While the US government would seem to be the last entity likely to declare Russian military equipment superior to the Made in the USA variety, that changed recently when the Pentagon's watchdog found that Russian choppers can perform missions in Afghanistan that US-made choppers cannot. The US Defense Department inspector general discerned that Lockheed Martin's Sikorsky Aircraft Black Hawk helicopters "are unable to accommodate some of the larger items the Mi-17 can carry, and in general it takes almost two Black Hawks to carry the load of a single Mi-17." The Mi-17, known under NATO reporting name "Hip," is sold by Rosoboronexport.

'Bad photos!' Trump slams media for 'fake' G7 summit reporting - tweets 'good photos' Signs of the Times

Donald Trump has slammed the "fake news media" for showing his encounters with the G7 leaders in a "bad" light and unleashed a series of tweets depicting his friendly relationship with the world elite, full of coziness and smiles. Last week Trump made an early exit from the gathering, departing the Group of Seven talks in Quebec, Canada, hours before the leaders of advanced economies gathered to discuss climate change. The US president's departure was widely seen as the last straw, following two days of severed discussions, after which he called the host, Canadian PM Justin Trudeau, "weak" and "dishonest," and refused to sign the final joint G7 communiqu.

'Thank God for Russia!' Remembering when London and Moscow were allies Signs of the Times

In the present geopolitical climate, the idea of a pact between the UK and Russia seems far-fetched to say the least. But in the summer of 1941 the two did come together against a common foe. What lessons can be learned from the 'Anglo-Russian agreement' which played a key part in the defeat of Nazi Germany? The date: Monday, July 14, 1941. The headline of the News Chronicle (price, one penny), states: 'Britain and Soviet Sign Pact.' Such a headline would have been unthinkable a few years previously. The British Conservative Party, the dominant member of the 'National' government which ruled Britain from 1931-1940, had been fiercely opposed on ideological grounds to the Bolshevik government in Moscow. It was Tory leader and Prime Minister Winston Churchill who, 13 years earlier, had supported giving aid to the Russian armies who were fighting what he called "the foul baboonery of Bolshevism."

Florida police release footage of controversial arrest of black couple at Waffle House Signs of the Times

The Waffle House chain has come under fire after a black couple were arrested for alleged theft and trespassing. The pair had disputed an overcharge on their bill, prompting the restaurant to call the police. The dispute arose when the couple, who had ordered a meal to-go, asked why they had been charged $2.50 for an orange juice that was listed as $1 on the menu. The incident took place in May, but the police footage was only released this week, after the couple's footage circulated on Facebook. Fort Walton Police bodycam footage shows the couple inside the restaurant in Fort Walton Beach, Florida. The officer can be heard taking a tough stance with the male complainant, who says the officer will put his hands on him if he goes outside. "Oh I'm going to put my hands on you!" the officer said.

Take populism global! Italy's new prime minister shows the way for Trump Signs of the Times

The Great and the Good are furious about Donald Trump's conduct at the G7 Summit, as journalists can't believe an American president had the temerity to stand up for his nation's interests at an international conference. They are especially incensed that President Trump broached re-admitting Russia into the summit, with the arch-traitor John McCain condemning the Commander-in-Chief on Twitter. Yet for all the talk of President Trump having problems with "allies," it is the European Union that is facing rebellion within its own ranks. As President Trump recognized on his Twitter account, the new government of Italy is now one of his strongest international supporters.

Kansas City PD under fire for 3 police shootings in under an hour Signs of the Times

Police in Kansas City are facing tough questions after shooting and killing three people in less than an hour. The city's police chief has defended the actions of officers, saying they "did what they thought was necessary." The deaths occurred in two separate police shootings in Kansas City, Missouri, on Thursday. The first fatality was a woman reportedly brandishing a "sword" who was shot after a standoff, the Kansas City Star reported. Police Captain Lionel Coln said he is confident the shooting "was a last-resort situation to ensure the safety of the public" and noted that some "action" took place that "met the criteria for lethal force." "She had been seen earlier ... walking around with the sword, which is obviously a threat to the community," Coln said, noting that he was not sure if she had the sword at the time she was shot, or whether she was shot inside the shed or had emerged from the building before police fired at her. Less than an hour later, two men were shot dead in an unrelated incident 10 miles away, reportedly during a fight over a gun and a golf cart. According to Coln, officers who arrived at the scene returned fire after being shot at.

One of Seattle's top cops found guilty of raping his own daughters Signs of the Times

In case after horrifying case, those in positions of power are exposed for their crimes, showing how these positions often attract society's worse. One recent example of this is a police sergeant in Seattle being found guilty on Wednesday for the repeated rape and molestation of his own daughters. Daniel Amador, 46, had been free on bail as the trial progressed over the last several months. However, he was detained on Wednesday after a jury found him guilty of first-degree child molestation, second-degree child rape, third-degree child rape and first-degree incest. According to the court documents, this vile top cop routinely raped his older daughter, known in court papers as A.B., about five times a week and also molested his younger daughter, C.A. The abuse took place for more than a decade and the little girls were unable to tell anyone as their father was a cop. Both of the victims, now ages 24 and 19, described their horrifying childhood in which A.B. was Amador's favorite one to rape while C.A. was regularly belittled.

The real takeaway: The FBI influenced the election of a President Signs of the Times

The good news is the Deep State seems less competent than we originally feared. It will be easy to miss the most important point amid the partisan bleating over what the Department of Justice Office of Inspector General report on the FBI's Clinton email investigation really means. While each side will find the evidence they want to find proving the FBI, with James Comey as director, helped/hurt Hillary Clinton and/or maybe Donald Trump, the real takeaway is this: the FBI influenced the election of a president. In January 2017 the Inspector General for the Department of Justice, Michael Horowitz (who previously worked on the 2012 study of "Fast and Furious"), opened his probe into the FBI's Clinton email investigation, including public statements Comey made at critical moments in the presidential campaign. Horowitz's focus was always to be on how the FBI did its work, not to re-litigate the case against Clinton. Nor did the IG plan to look into anything regarding Russiagate.

Minnesota cops ordered paramedics to inject suspects with horse tranquilizer Signs of the Times

Police in Minneapolis, Minnesota, have been ordered to "never suggest or demand" that paramedics use powerful horse tranquilizers on suspects, following a report that the practice had spiked in recent years. The new policy order comes after a report by the city's Office of Police Conduct Review found that paramedics had used ketamine on suspects during police calls 62 times in 2017, up from just three times in 2012. In some cases, emergency personnel injected the tranquilizer into suspects who were already restrained, causing heart and breathing failure and requiring the suspects to be medically revived, reported the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. "Our policy should be clear," said Mayor Jacob Frey. "Cops shouldn't direct medical professionals on health-related issues, and medical professionals shouldn't listen to them." Two local healthcare officials, Jeffrey Ho and Jon Cole, criticized the report for its "reckless use of anecdotes...to draw uninformed and incorrect conclusions." In a statement, they argued in favor of sedation, claiming that it is sometimes necessary to avoid "allowing people to exhaust themselves to death."

HRW report - Israeli banks fund the 'pillage' Palestine through settlement program and may be guilty of war crimes Signs of the Times

Deep involvement of Israeli banks in the building of illegal settlements in the occupied West Bank may amount to the war crime of pillage, HRW has said. While the settlements are condemned worldwide, Israel keeps building more. "Israeli banks are facilitating their expansion and thus bankrolling these abuses," said the Israel/Palestine Advocacy Director of Human Rights Watch (HRW), Sari Bashi, in an article, published in World Policy earlier this week. "The involvement of banks in these transactions can amount to pillage -- that is, seizing private property in conflict situations, in violation of the laws of war." The official gave an example of the banks' involvement in settlement-related activities: The cooperation between developer Zemach Hammerman and Bank Leumi in constructing a new housing project in the settlement of Alfei Menashe. The developer and the bank have so-called "accompaniment agreements," designed to protect the investments of homebuyers, Bashi explained, adding that similar patterns are used in the development of other Israeli settlements.

Empathic people process music differently than others Signs of the Times

People with higher empathy differ from others in the way their brains process music, according to a study by researchers at Southern Methodist University, Dallas and UCLA. Music is listened to in all known cultures. Similarities between human and animal song have been detected: both contain a message, an intention that reflects innate emotional state that is interpreted correctly even among different species. In fact, several behavioral features in listening to music are closely related to attachment: lullabies are sung to infants to increase their attachment to a parent, and singing or playing music together is based on teamwork and may add group cohesion. Our willingness to listen to music is biological trait and related to the neurobiological pathways affecting social affiliation and communication. The researchers found that compared to low empathy people, those with higher empathy process familiar music with greater involvement of the reward system of the brain, as well as in areas responsible for processing social information.

Strategic partnership between Russia and Indonesia in the Asia Pacific Signs of the Times

For some time now, Russia has been strengthening its position in Southeast Asia by developing partnerships with the ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) member states, including Indonesia. The Republic of Indonesia is a country with a number of unique characteristics. It is the largest island nation surrounded by both the Indian and the Pacific Oceans. Indonesia is located on a strategically important part of the shipping route between Europe and Asia: between the Indonesian island of Sumatra and the Malay Peninsula lies the Strait of Malacca, used to transport up to a quarter of all the goods shipped by sea in the world. Besides, Indonesia is home to the largest Muslim population in the world, which facilitates ties in the Islamic world. Hence, Russia benefits from a partnership with Indonesia in a number of ways, even outside the scope of its cooperation with ASEAN as a whole. Russia and Indonesia have had friendly relations since the times of the USSR. Soviet - Indonesian diplomatic relations were established in 1950 when the Soviet Union provided development aid to the newly established Republic of Indonesia. In the 1950s and 1960s, the USSR supplied the Indonesian army with weapons and military equipment, including dozens of war ships, submarines, airplanes, helicopters, tanks, missiles and ammunition exceeding $1 billion in value. Aside from this, at the end of the 1950s, thousands of Soviet military servicemen visited Indonesia with the aim of training their Indonesian counterparts on the use of the delivered military supplies. In the 1960s, the USSR helped Indonesia win its territorial dispute with its former colonial power, Holland. Despite help from other Western nations, the Netherlands had to cede part of the New Guinea island to Indonesia.

Manwolf report: Wolf-like creature seen southwest Montana Signs of the Times

There's been a lot of excitement in the past week over a wolf-like animal shot by a rancher near Denton in north Central Montana. It's some kind of canid, most experts agree, and possibly some type of wolf-dog hybrid. A few have gone so far as to call it a dogman or even werewolf, although it was only seen running on all fours. This week I received a Montana sighting report describing something much more like a typical dogman report in terms of size, appearance, and behavior. The witness had seen the news photos and felt that he should reveal what he had personally seen. At my request, he also drew the attached sketch of what he observed standing at the treeline of his own back yard less than a year ago. It occurred only 150 miles southwest of Denton, near the northern edge of the Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest and Wise River. Just a glance at a map will confirm what a great habitat it would be for any wild canid. The witness has since moved from that area. He said I could call him Zach here, but I do have his full name for contact info. He is in his mid-twenties, and at the time of the event worked in the environmental science department of the state's Conservation Corps. Here is his own account of the 2017 incident:

Promoting diversity? Non-Muslim teacher wears full face veil, reads from Koran in Swiss school Signs of the Times

A teacher in Switzerland has made headlines after wearing a full face veil and reading passages from the Koran out loud during a lesson on Islam, local media reports. The stunt was apparently aimed at promoting diversity. "She [the teacher] came into class completely veiled without warning and started reading lines from [the] Koran out loud", students from a vocational school in the Swiss capital told local 20 Minuten newspaper. Though nobody is said to have left the class, the extraordinary move raised a few eyebrows. Some of the students claimed later that "it did not belong in a classroom," the news outlet reports. The video released by 20 Minuten claims to show the teacher in question wearing a niqab - a Muslim face-covering veil - reading passages from the Koran. Some of the words are bleeped out. The teacher, however, is not a Muslim and reportedly bought the niqab during a vacation in Egypt.

Ireland: A special case of Palestine solidarity Signs of the Times

In the face of Israel's well-funded campaign against supporters of Palestine and BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions), Ireland remains a relatively comfortable base for conducting Palestine solidarity campaigns. In other countries pro-Palestine activists have been put under pressure and many universities have successfully silenced such activism by firing pro-Palestine professors (such as Steven Salaita and Norman Finkelstein) and canceling conferences about Palestine. By contrast, in Ireland, until the March 2017 conference in University College Cork where the university imposed severe limitations on the organizers, conferences on Palestine have gone ahead with the support of universities and university teachers unions (Teachers' Union of Ireland and Irish Federation of University Teachers). Irish people clearly understand the implications of settler colonialism and Palestinians appreciate Irish people's support. This paper briefly charts the history of the relations between Ireland and the Palestine question. I then use the September 2017 conference 'Freedom of speech and Higher Education: The case of the academic boycott of Israel' held in Trinity College Dublin to highlight the extent of Zionist interference and concomitant university support. I conclude with a brief outline of the work of Academics for Palestine, of which I am the chair.

British mammals are in imminent danger

One in five of our nearly 60 species of British mammals are in danger of extinction

Just last month, in this column, I reported on the severe threat to one of our most attractive native mammals the hedgehog.

Fifty years ago there were 32 million hedgehogs in Britain and about a million motor vehicles. Today we are down to nearly half a million hedgehogs but well over 32 million vehicles squashing hedgehogs on our streets.

This weeks headlines alert us to threats to mammal numbers but before we look at these let us remind ourselves of some basic mammalian numbers.

Never forget one of the commonest British mammals is us human beings we come in many colours, sizes and shapes but we are all the same species and there are probably some 65 million of us. Even Michael Gove is one.

An even more frightening fact might be that most numerous among wild mammals is the common or brown rat with an estimated population of 82 million-plus four rats for every three humans.

The house mouse is the second most common mammal at 76 million. Other small rodents like the field vole (75 million), common shrew

Another inconvenient truth: Antarctica's ice sheet is more durable than we thought Signs of the Times

On the same day that WaPo and other alarmist media outlets were wailing about a small loss in Antarctic ice balance, another study came out. This study found that the East Antarctic Ice Sheet has survived higher temperatures than we are experiencing now. From PM: Summary: Scientists studied the Pliocene epoch, which happened a few million years ago.Temperatures were a little warmer then, so the epoch could be a good preview of a warmer Earth.They found Antarctic ice was more prevalent back then than we'd believed. One of the biggest potential dangers of increasing climate change is sea level rise caused by the melting of the polar ice caps. As our planet heats up, large ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica will melt, potentially triggering several feet of increased sea level rise. If the entire Antarctic ice sheet melts into the ocean, it could lead to dozens of feet of sea level rise, likely enough to wipe out entire cities.

In conversation with Francis Collins, the director of the NIH, Yong discussed the future of microbial medicine. He argued that doctors should focus on an "ecological type of thinking" instead of the more simplistic approach behind "medically underwhelming" probiotic treatments. "It's not just thinking of microbes as a pill that you could give to someone to fix a lack of something," Yong said.

Lab-grown meat startups that rely on animal cells to produce beef, poultry and seafood products have caught the eye of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, which has begun the process of regulating the industry. Cultured meat, considered an environmentally sound alternative to the real thing, is made by harvesting cells from animals and growing them to make food. Companies like Memphis Meats Inc. and Future Meat Technologies have piqued the interest of investors such as food giants Tyson Foods Inc. and Cargill Inc., as well as billionaires Bill Gates and Richard Branson.

Federal judge sends Paul Manafort to jail to await criminal trial Signs of the Times

A federal judge has revoked bail conditions for Trump's ex-campaign chairman, Paul Manafort. The decision means he will await his criminal trial for allegedly tampering with witnesses in the Russian investigation while in jail. US District Judge Amy Berman made the decision after prosecutors working for Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is leading the Russia probe, alleged that Manafort and one of his associates had tried to tamper with witnesses in the case, US media reports. Mueller filed a third amended indictment against Manafort last week, alleging that he and Russian-Ukrainian businessman Konstantin Kilimnik attempted to persuade potential witnesses not to testify against them.

Lightning strike kills man doing canopy tour in Monteverde, Costa Rica Signs of the Times

The afternoon of this Friday a man died after being struck by lightning while doing canopy tour in Monteverde. The victim was identified as Pedro Obando, 31 years old, who apparently worked as a canopy tour guide in the area. No additional information has been offered so far regarding the accident or the details on how the tragedy occurred.

DOJ report accuses Comey of 'usurping authority' in order to protect Clinton Signs of the Times

Former FBI Director James Comey "usurped authority" and made a "serious error of judgment" in handling the Hillary Clinton email probe in 2016, says the newly published report by the Department of Justice inspector general. Inspector General Michael Horowitz's document contains criticism of Comey, former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and several FBI employees involved in the Clinton email probe, known as "Midyear Exam." Comey's announcement that no charges will be filed against Clinton in July 2016 usurped Lynch's authority and went against FBI policy, while his October 2016 announcement the FBI had found additional emails and reopened the investigation likewise violated policy and represented a "serious error of judgment." Comey is also accused of using personal email to conduct FBI business.

Preston James

Secret ET Global Takedown or just another Internecine Illuminati War?

If you think the Deep-Black Secret Space War Program is the deepest of the Secret Shadow Government secrets, you would be mistaken.

There is a whole other deeper category referred to as Beyond-Black and these are solely contained in special access unacknowledged programs, not even known by the Board members of the Defense Contractors they lie hidden deep within because their security clearances dont go high enough. These programs involve time warping, quantum technologies far beyond anything most can conceive of, including time projections from the Looking Glass and psychotronic and psi-powered mind-kontrol using miniaturized technologies, remote entrainment and hiving of the human mind.

Beyond-Black involves worm holes, deep space factional battles, and off-planet bases where some from deep within the Secret Shadow Government go to live to get away from Planet Earth and live out the rest of their lives which have been extended beyond normal with high technology. Right now Beyond-Black disclosures are still forbidden.

Most, not all, shootings are false flag events. Most, not all, actual shooters are on drugs and/or under mind control, which has evolved greatly since CIA and its house Nazis developed the capability in the 1950s. As Robert Steele has challenged Ollie North (the new President of the National Rifle Association), it is essential that the NRA begin challenging the false flag narratives and demanding the the FBI be honest with us about these events that are generally manufactured by FEMA under DHS authority. It is now legal to propagandize US citizens and the Department of Justice additionally claims the right to lie to the courts (including the Supreme Court) in cases of (alleged) national security. As our President has stated, the system is rigged.  Fake news and false flag operations are essential underpinnings for Deep State control of the public narrative and the public consciousness and tolerate of great evil by the 1% against the 99%.

Dead fin whale washes up in Bolinas, California - 5th for the region since March Signs of the Times

Almost a year to the day since a spectacular 79-foot blue whale washed up on Agate Beach, a 58-foot fin whale wound up on nearby Brighton Beach after meeting the same fate: death by ship strike. On May 22, the dead fin whale was spotted hung up on Duxbury Reef, according to a letter by Bolinas resident Kent Khtikian published in the Hearsay News last week. Researchers with the Marine Mammal Center and California Academy of Sciences found the whale's skull, vertebrae and ribs fractured. It was one of two fin whales, which are among the fastest species in the ocean, that washed up in the Bay Area in the same week, bringing the total to five since March.

Police Officer Gives Piggy Back To Elderly Man Struggling To Cross The Road [Video] TruthTheory

By Amanda Froelich Truth Theory

You dont need to be a superhero to help others or affect the world. In fact, sometimes the simplest of actions make the biggest difference. A video that provides testament to this statement recently went viral on Chinese social media.

Recently, an elderly man was attempting to make his way across a busy street in Mianyang, Sichuan province, when the crosswalk light turned red. While drivers waited patiently, a police officer stepped up to help.

As can be seen in the video below, the compassionate cop, Qin Weijie, approached the man and asked if he could carry him to the other side. To this unconventional request, the elderly man said yes.

As GoodNewsNetwork reports, the officer knew that the man had seven more lanes of traffic to cross. So, he hoisted him on his back and carried him across the street. The video is both humorous and heart-warming.

CounterPunch: Why Young Americans Do Not Revolt Despite Knowing They Are Being Royally Screwed by a Rigged System Public Intelligence Blog

Another Reason Young Americans Dont Revolt Against Being Screwed

Bruce E. Levine

8 Reasons Young Americans Dont Fight Back: How the US Crushed Youth Resistance was originally published in 2011, then republished on several Internet sites, and has become one of my most viewed articles. The eight reasons include: student-loan debt; various pacifying effects of standard schooling; the psychopathologizing and medicating of noncompliance; surveillance; television; and fundamentalist religion and fundamentalist consumerism. Over the last seven years, many young people have told me that they appreciate that article, but they have urged me to detail a hugely important pacifying source which I had not included.

Since my 2011 article was published, many millennials have informed me that they are being broken by something that I hadnt originally included: the Internet, which many of them tell me is the most important aspect of their lives. From these young people, I have learned how the Internet creates fears, lowers self-esteem, and divides themall of which weakens their capacity to resist injustices.

The US Experienced Its Hottest May on Record and Nobodys Talking About it TruthTheory

By Amanda Froelich Truth Theory

Need additional proof that climate change is a very real phenomenon? Consider that last month, the United States of America experienced its hottest May on record. As climate scientist David Titley said, Nature is dealing cards from a very different deck now compared to the 20th century.

During the first week of June, federal scientists announced that May shattered heat records across the U.S. Not only was it the warmest May on record, nearly 8,600 local heat records were also broken during the month. The warmth was coast-to-coast, said climate scientist Jake Crouch from NOAAs National Center for Environmental Information. 

According to USA Today, the upper Midwest and Ohio Valley experienced the worst heat waves. On May 28, the temperature in Minneapolis skyrocketed to a record 100 degrees F. Air conditioners gave out, roads buckled, and air-quality alerts were triggered as a result.

The average May temperature across the nation was 65.4 degrees, which is 5.2 degrees above average, according to the NOAA. Scientists are pointing to man-made global warming as the culprit. Two tropical systems churning in the Gulf of Mexico also pumped warm, moist air across the eastern U.S., as well.

It is worth noting that more than one-quarter of the contiguous U.S. remains in drought. Othe...

Open Letter to Amnesty International by a Former Amnesty International Prisoner of Conscience Dissident Voice

Through this letter I express my unequivocal condemnation of Amnesty International with regards to the destabilizing role it has played in Nicaragua, my country of birth.

I open this letter quoting Donatella Rovera, who at the time this quote was made, had been one of Amnesty Internationals field investigators for more than 20 years:

Conflict situations create highly politicized and polarized environments (). Players and interested parties go to extraordinary lengths to manipulate or manufacture evidence for both internal and external consumption. A recent, though by no means the only, example is provided by the Syrian conflict in what is often referred to as the YouTube war, with a myriad techniques employed to manipulate video footage of incidents which occurred at other times in other places including in other countries and present them as proof of atrocities committed by one or the other parties to the conflict in Syria.

Ms. Roveras remarks, made in 2014, properly describe the situation of Nicaragua today, where even the preamble of the crisis was manipulated to generate rejection of the Nicaraguan government. Amnesty Internationals maliciously titled report, Shoot to Kill: Nicaraguas Strategy to Repress Protest, could be dismantled point by point, but doing so requires precious time that the Nicaraguan people dont have, therefore I will concentrate on two main points:

(a) The report completely lacks neutrality; and,
(b) Amnesty Internationals role is contributing to the chaos in which the nation finds itself.

The operating narrative, agreed-upon by the local opposition and the corporate western media, is as follows: That president Ortega sought to cut 5 percent from retirees monthly retirement checks, and that he was going to increase contributions, made by employees and employers, into the social security system. The reforms sparked protests, the response to which was a government-ordered genocide of peaceful protestors, more than 60, mostly students. A day or two after that, the Nicaraguan government would wait until nightfall to send its police force out in order to decimate the Nicaraguan population, night after night, city by city, in the process destroying its own public buildings and killing its own police force, to then culminate its murderous rampage with a Mothers Day massacre, and so on.

While the above narrative is not uniformly expressed by all anti-government actors, the unifying elements are that the government is committing genocide, and that the president and vice-president must go.

Amnesty Internationals assertions are mostly based on either testimony by anti-government witnesses and victims, or the uncorroborated and highly manipulated information emitted by U.S.-financed anti-government media outlets, and non-profit organizations, collectively known as civ...

30 Signs Youre Born To Be A Spiritual Healer TruthTheory

By Aletheia Luna via Loner Wolf

A healers power stems not from any special ability, but from maintaining the courage and awareness to embody and express the universal healing power that every human being naturally possesses. E. Leventhal

At heart, we all have the capacity to heal ourselves and nurture others. Spirit, energy, thought, intention, skilful practice and belief are available to all people. Yet as individual expressions of the life force, we all have different paths, and not all of us feel called to healing practices.

For those of us that do feel called to spiritual healing, we are often met with some kind of resistance, either from our friends, our family members, or our culture. This is because spiritual healing can be frowned upon as a quasi, scientifically-misguided, charlatan practice by a society that is built on the mind and ego. While there are con artists in every practice, the genuinely beneficial aspects of spiritual healing are largely ignored because they cant be quantified or reasoned with.

Unfortunately, this has led to a large percentage of us (particularly in Westernised societies) losing touch with traditional forms of healing. Very few of us were raised around shamans, medicine men or medicine women who could pass on ancient knowledge and holistic healing practices. Instead, as children we were taken to GPs, physicians and doctors who pres...

Big Brother Facebook: Drawing Down The Iron Curtain on Yankeedom Dissident Voice

Leading a double life

When my partner, Barbara, first opened an account on Facebook, she used it in a way that most people in Yankeedom use it. Her network was an eclectic assortment of family, current and former workmates, new and old friends, neighbors and relatives living in other parts of the country. Most of what was posted on this account were pictures of kids, dogs and kitty cats, vacations, dinner outings, jokes nothing too controversial. Like most members of Yankeedom, religion and politics were off limits. However, there was a kind of politically unconscious assumption operating that liberal values prevailed and that somehow the Democratic Party embodied those values. I nicknamed her Facebook account the Suzy Cream Cheese account after the Mothers of Inventions album because it only dealt with surface preoccupations.

As the most recent US presidential primaries heated up and people took sides about Hillary, Bernie and Jill Stein, the Suzy Cream Cheese page started to be not nice. The political unconscious became conscious. The assumption was that all women in the name of feminism should vote for Hillary. My partner thought this was a very shallow understanding of feminism and posted an article she wrote that was published in a number of online radical newsletters titled, Feminism is Bigger Than Gender: Why Ill Be Happy in Hell Without Hillary. Oh dear. After she posted that article on Facebook, she got the cold shoulder and lost a couple of friends. Around that time she opened up a second political Facebook account and started adding to it a whole new group of far-left friends and acquaintances. She continued posting suitable for family viewing comments with her Suzy Cream Cheese account while posting and responding to socialist and communist posts on her political account.

The Two Faces of Facebook

Neither Barbara nor I are sociologists of social media or specifically of Facebook, so what follows is experiential. However, we do know a thing or two about how capitalist institutions operate in general and Facebook is no exception.

The primary purpose of Facebook is to sell ad space to marketers. But how do you reach the Yankee public? You make it easy for Yankees to set up individual accounts so that Yankees can do what we do besttalk about the micro world of family, dogs and friends. In the process, hopefully people will purchase some of the products o...

Flying Spiders: See Them in Action | National Geographic

Flying spiders sense meteorological conditions, use nanoscale fibers to float on the wind

The crab spider spins out tens of fine silk fibers for its aerial dispersal

June 14, 2018

Spiders take flight on the smallest of breezes by first sensing the wind, and then spinning out dozens of nanoscale fibers up to seven meters long, according to a study publishing June 14 in the open-access journal PLOS Biology by Moonsung Cho, Ingo Rechenberg, Peter Neubauer, and Christoph Fahrenson at the Technische Universitt in Berlin. The study provides an unprecedentedly detailed look at the ballooning behavior that allows certain spiders to travel on the wind for hundreds of kilometers.

Many kinds of spiders engage in ballooning, either to disperse from their birth site, to search for food or mates, or to find new sites for colonization. While most ballooning spiders are juveniles or small adults, under 3 millimeters in length, some larger adults also balloon. Although the behavior has been studied before, these authors are the first to make detailed measurements of both the sensing behavior and the silk fibers that are used to catch the...

Whats in Trumps Deal of the Century? The Answers are in Plain Sight Dissident Voice

There are mounting signals that Donald Trumps much-delayed Middle East peace plan billed as the deal of the century is about to be unveiled.

Even though Trumps officials have given away nothing publicly, the plans contours are already evident, according to analysts.

They note that Israel has already started implementing the deal entrenching apartheid rule over Palestinians while Washington has spent the past six months dragging its heels on publishing the document.

Netanyahu has simply got on with deepening his hold on the West Bank and East Jerusalem and he knows the Americans arent going to stand in his way, said Michel Warschawski, an Israeli analyst and head of the Alternative Information Centre in Jerusalem.

He will be given free rein to do what he likes, whether they publish the plan or, in the end, it never sees the light of day, he told Middle East Eye.

Eran Etzion, a former Israeli foreign ministry official, agreed: Israel has a much freer hand than it did in the past. It feels confident enough to continue its existing policies, knowing Trump wont stand in the way.

Netanyahu the winner

According to the latest reports, the Americans may present their plan within days, soon after the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

Yossi Alpher, a former aide to Ehud Barak during his premiership in the late 1990s, said it was clear Netanyahu was being kept in the loop by Trump officials. He told MEE: He is being apprised of what is coming. There wont be any surprises for him.

Analysts are agreed that Netanyahu will emerge the winner from any Trump initiative.

Yossi Beilin, a former Israeli politician who was a pivotal figure in the Oslo peace process of the early 1990s, said Netanyahu would cynically manipulate the plan to his advantage.

He knows the Palestinians will not accept the terms they are being offered, he told MEE. So he can appear reasonable and agree to it even if there are things he is unhappy with knowing that the Palestinians will reject it and then be blamed for its failure.

Alpher agreed. If the plan is rejected, Trump will say he did his best, he offered the parties the greatest deal ever, and that they must now be left to settle the issues on their own.

He added that the only obstacle to Washington presenting the plan were fears about Abbass waning health. Trumps team might then prefer to shelve it.

Even then, he said, Netanyahu would profit.

He can then continue with what hes been doing for the past 10 years. He will expand the settlements, and suppress the rights of Israelis who oppose him. He will move Israel towards a situation of apartheid.

Language Is The Battlefield Running 'Cause I Can't Fly

Language Is The Battlefield
by Asha Logos 

"Nation's survive and thrive when they're able to communicate clearly and honestly, and they can just as easily fall to pieces when dishonest actors pollute or confuse language as a means of obtaining their ends. We're swiftly reaching a point in which the two sides of the ideological fence can hold nearly polar opposite definitions of the exact same words or concepts... a point in which true communication becomes impossible, and the prospect of very real violence looms on the horizon. 

The men who built this nation took great pains to establish order and structure, institutions and codes of conduct that allow for harmony and balance. Many take it for granted that peaceful civilization is simply how things are, forgetting the courage, devotion, and intellectual energy required to create and maintain such a state of being. The more we turn our backs on their collective wisdom and rush to embrace a modernist viewpoint that stands at odds with the entirety of human history, the closer we stumble to a complete societal breakdown, and the law of the jungle.

More than 300 Catholic bishops have blasted the Trump administrations immigration policies, calling for an end to the separation of migrant children from their parents and condemning Attorney General Jeff Sessionss policy of ending the right of domestic violence survivors to seek asylum in the United States.

On Thursday, Sessions quoted the Bible to justify his departments immigration policies. Sessions was speaking to an invitation-only crowd in Fort Wayne, Indiana. I would cite you to the Apostle Paul and his clear and wise command in Romans 13 to obey the laws of the government because God has ordained the government for his purposes, stated Sessions. Critics seized on his reference to Romans 13, noting it was a favorite passage of defenders of the Confederacy used to justify slavery. We speak to the Rev. William Barber.

Human rights groups condemn Ukraine over its funding of nazi militias

HUMAN rights groups in Ukraine hit out today after it was revealed that nazi militias involved in brutal and violent attacks against minorities have received cash from the government.

A report published on YouTube by the Ministry of Youth and Sports showed officials voting to fund the far-right Svoboda party along with the violent neonazi C14 group via grants for national-patriotic education projects.

In the C14 name, the C alludes to C18, the (originally English, later international) neonazi terror gang Combat 18. In which 18, the first and eighth letters in the alphabet, stands for AH=Adolf Hitler. The 14 in the C14 name stands for the 14 words, a racist neonazi slogan.

In a statement on its website the ministry admitted that, while it does not directly finance any public groups, including the far-right, it does fund the projects of those groups.

"The First Rule Of Life..." Running 'Cause I Can't Fly

"The first rule of life is to reveal nothing, to be exceptionally cautious in what you say, in whatever company you may find yourself. If you have a secret, you have only to whisper it to your dearest friend with the strictest injunction that it will go no further, and within half a day the story is all over town, and when you do make what would seem to be a perfectly sensible remark, you will find it reported in the most grotesque form, thus incurring no end of criticism to rebound upon you."

The Charge of the Light Brigade"
 Compiled By CP

All the talk about war, with N. Korea, with Russia, with China, with Iran... "operations" in Libya, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, seemingly everywhere, and endless. Perhaps Mankind does indeed have a death wish- a certain segment of it certainly appears to- and all of history has been mere preparation for some final nuclear-war apocalyptic event. I don't know, but it made me think of this event in history, among others, and I thought I'd share it with you. Food for thought, at least... - CP

All the talk of history is of nothing almost but fighting and killing, and the honor and renown which are bestowed on conquerors, who, for the most part, are mere butchers of mankind, mislead growing youth, who, by these means, come to think slaughter the most laudable business of mankind, and the most heroic of virtue. - John Locke

The Charge of the Light Brigade was a charge of British cavalry led by Lord Cardigan against Russian forces during the Battle of Balaclava on 25 October 1854 in the Crimean War. The charge was the...

DOJ refusing to give Grassley access to agent who interviewed Flynn Terra Forming Terra


 
 
Why is our attention been brought to bear on this interview and the related notes?  could there be something impacting someone else?  just how would an FBI agent cover himself if ordered to do something?  
 
If you are aware, you understand that the MSM has chosen to ignore masses of direct evidence relating to the past administration that is seriously damaging and criminal as well.   This fact is only possible through a monopolistic censorship which we are all now seeing.

The Alt media has run with this mountain of direct evidence and has used it to build their audience by obviously showing their followers how to confirm the evidence.
 
Countering this explicit censorship we have the administration and elected officials slowly forcing points of friction in order to inform the American public of the grave nature of what was been attempted.  The good news is that those forces are at least in retreat but are not yet defeated.
 
That is why this is important.  Why this now?.

Iranian freedom fighters are tagging Qanon on their tweets.  This is huge. That means mil intel is able to support efforts to remove the Mullahs inside Iran directly with actionable Intel. This is a completely new type of warfare.  The potentiality is scary.

Let us now talk about NK. We saw a publicity event that clearly brought NK back into the community of nations with regularizing of communication between the Hermit Kingdom.  Obviously, this is extremely important.

I expected more in the declaration but then I am hardly privy to the thinking behind it.  I certainly think that there is a working group establishing a unification plan that makes all concerns moot.  Truth is, that this is NK and SK business and it is clearly in full swing.

Thus this summit was a coming out party and a major effort to rehabilitate Kim's reputation and stop the demonizing.  It went wonderfully.  Kim really wants to see Disney land and so do his government...

Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein Delivers Remarks at the International Economic Forum of the Americas Conference of Montreal Terra Forming Terra





 RR  is very much at the center of Comey's attempt to damage the incoming Trump presidency and is now in charge of the 'Mueller' investigation.   I suspect both he and Mueller are playing a double game in support of the clean up of the FBI in particular or alternately they are the principals of a horrendous plot. 


Sessions recused himself to allow them to run their game without compromising himself which would have been a desired outcome for the DEEP STATE.  He in the meantime has launched serious investigations aimed at rolling up that DEEP STATE.

This speech is a worthy read and worthy of his position.  I hope in the end he is remembered for this and goes on to successfully lead a cleansed FBI.  .

GOOGLE Has Those Emails Terra Forming Terra

Holy Crap Sunshine!!!

The idiots all had active gmail accounts and all did their skullduggery there off the government system.  ES resigned the moment Trump issued his EO in December.  What this tells me is that Google is cooperating or soon will be and is recovering all those emails that Hilary and others chose to lose.
 
 
It says something that they had things to say to each other that posterity was not allowed to know.  This is called a working conspiracy and is certainly in need of detailed investigation. 


They really were this stupid, even knowing the data was been collected somewhere.  Yet we are likely looking at historical methods from pre super surveillance days that simply may have ran out of time.


The true irony is that Big Brother is actually here and that it will be used to surveil any potential DEEP STATE from now on.  After all the citizen has surrendered his power to the STATE.

"A Look to the Heavens" Running 'Cause I Can't Fly

Near the center of this sharp cosmic portrait, at the heart of the Orion Nebula, are four hot, massive stars known as the Trapezium. Gathered within a region about 1.5 light-years in radius, they dominate the core of the dense Orion Nebula Star Cluster. Ultraviolet ionizing radiation from the Trapezium stars, mostly from the brightest star Theta-1 Orionis C powers the complex star forming region's entire visible glow. 
Click image for larger size.
About three million years old, the Orion Nebula Cluster was even more compact in its younger years and a recent dynamical study indicates that runaway stellar collisions at an earlier age may have formed a black hole with more than 100 times the mass of the Sun. The presence of a black hole within the cluster could explain the observed high velocities of the Trapezium stars. The Orion Nebula's distance of some 1500 light-years would make it the closest known black hole to planet Earth.

Steve King (R-Iowa) says his fellow House Republicans "are considering" removing Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Scum-bag-Wis.), who has announced he is retiring after this Congress. "It's kind of odd that he has as much power as he has," King said in an interview with Breitbart News Tonight released Friday. "But I do predict, and it is happening, that that power is diminishing. I also have got information that there are -- Ill say 'members' -- I say that plurally, with knowledge, that are considering introducing a motion to vacate the chair," King continued. Speculation has been growing among rank-and-file Republicans that Ryan won't be able to hold on to his gavel for the rest of the year, though few are calling on him to resign early.

"Well, son, I'll tell you:
Life for me ain't been no crystal stair.
It's had tacks in it,
And splinters,
And boards torn up,
And places with no carpet on the floor
Bare.
But all the time
I'se been a-climbin' on,
And reachin' landin's,
And turnin' corners,
And sometimes goin' in the dark
Where there ain't been no light.
So, boy, don't you turn back.
Don't you set down on the steps.
'Cause you finds it's kinder hard.
Don't you fall now
For I'se still goin', honey,
I'se still climbin',
And life for me ain't been no crystal stair."

Here's How YOU Can Undermine the Evil Cabal Humans Are Free

Over the years, the description of the tyrants and psychopaths that so often occupy positions of power in our world has evolved, and today it is fashionable to refer to this nebulous group by using the term Evil Cabal.

Language is perhaps the most important device we have for creating reality, and just as George Orwell knew, the more linguistically vague, simplistic, ambiguous and nondescript the language, the more room there is to shape perception.

This is called Newspeak, and in the case of the Evil Cabal, the term fails to fully describe our complex world, but succeeds tremendously in maintaining the prison of fear that actually inhibits freedom.

In a catch-all phrase like Evil Cabal, there really is little substance in the language to inspire meaningful action or reaction. In fact, the opposite is true. By generalizing the widespread depravity in the world with such a vague yet loaded term, the result can only be fear and inaction.

About Those Wal-Marts and Senator Merkley: Another Backfire & Time to Get Busy [video]

JUNE 15, 2018

Source: Starship Earth: The Big Picture

As I said when Merkley went to Brownsville and asked for a tour of the former Wal-Mart, he may have gone with the intent to skewer President Trump.

The cabal just never learn and they used CNN to bring this situation to the attention of Americans. Okay, so now its out there, and we KNOW President Trump is not to blame for this situation.

It began under President Obama. President Trump has had his hands full and funded the wall to prevent children from winding up in facilities like this in USA. He did what he could to quickly put a stop to it and come up with long-term prevention.

Lets see how Americans respond to this. Jonathan is calling for Americans to boycott Wal-Marts, even though this facility is no longer a Wal-Mart location. He feels hitting the cabal in the bank account is the way to make a statement.

If youre not familiar with Jonathan Miller, hes a former US military guy and he is incensed by this.

From what weve learned in the past couple of years, we know that children might be trafficked for many reasons: as sex slaves, for organ harvesting, satanic blood rituals and we dont know if they are being detained here for any of these purposes, but its inhumane the way theyre being treated in these facilities.

There has to be a better way. Its time for public conversation on the reality of this. Lets turn it around and expose it for what it is. Currently, its a legacy problem that needs to be addressed. I doubt if this many children fall into the category they are suggestingwhere the parents or sponsors cant be located. There has to be more to it. ~ BP

7 Ways To Harness The Power Of Neptune Retrograde Awareness Act

As you may know, there are currently quite a few planets in retrograde and their energies are a bit conflicting. Neptune will be in retrograde soon and there are several things we need to be aware to help you navigate. While this coming retrograde might not seem that important it is going to make a huge difference in your life.

This retrograde will begin on the 18th of June and end in November. Neptune will be retrograding in Pisces which is going to make things a bit interesting. While some of us will feel nothing others will be drastically impacted. Now, if you want to know whether or not you are being truly affected by this retrograde you will need to take the following things into consideration.

These are all things you can expect from Neptunes retrograde if it is going to affect you. With that being said, being affected is not a bad thing, it will really push you forward in ways you may not have been able to experience before. Let the universe work its magic on you, everything happens for a reason and you will never be brought to something you cannot handle.

7 Things You Need to Know About The Coming Retrograde of Neptune:

1. You might experience a lot of frustration.

You might feel much more frustrated than you have ever in life. These frustrations will come from specific places or you might not be able to pinpoint things. Nothing will make sense and you will really be on edge.

2. Being aware of what is real and what isnt will benefit you greatly.

During this time the lines of what is and what is not will be a little blurred. Being able to really put yourself out there but still tell things apart is important. While these energies will have you feeling a bit confused they will also be able to do lots of good if you can separate them from the rest.

3. Your senses have become heightened.

You will be able to sense more during this time. Your perception will be much more heightened and stronger than it has ever been before. You will be really able to pick up on things while Neptune is in retrograde; this can be both and good and bad thing.

4. If you are feeling flightier than usual, Neptune is affecting you.

Because of this retrograde, you might feel a bit more flighty than usual. You will want to really jump into new things and out of old things. Nothing will suit your fancy in the ways you want it to.

5. Your inner voice is becoming louder.

Your inner voice will become louder when this planet is retrograding but you should not let it overshadow your own voice. While it should be listened to it does not make the ultimate decisions. Sometimes even the voice in our head can be wrong.

6. You feel the need to really cleanse your spiritual mind.

You feel like things are becoming too overwhelming so you are compelled to really get outside and spend time in...

Giving Up your DNA to Anyone Bad Idea Armstrong Economics

The pitch by various ancestry operations is to send in your DNA by spitting into a vile and they will tell you your ethnic background. Sounds nice, but they then keep it. Why? The greatest danger is that such info can be turned over to the government at any moment. Giving up your DNA is actually giving up your entire family. People have been arrested because their DNA has been traced thanks to some family member who the government has in their database.

But the risk of a crime is not really the big issue for most people. The real risk is that insurance companies can deny insurance based upon getting your DNA covertly and determining that you are at high risk of heart attack or stroke. Canadian lawmakers passed the Genetic Non-Discrimination Act on March 8, 2017. This law would make it illegal for employers or insurance companies in Canada to discriminate against people based on their genetic information.

Back in 2008, Congress passed the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008, which prohibits discrimination against Americans based on their genetic information in both health insurance (Title I) and employment (Title II). The danger presented is if you voluntarily give up your DNA, they can argue you waived all your rights. Then Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, The Affordable Care Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act all are supposed to protect you from discrimination based upon your DNA.

You should know that last year on August 22nd, 2017, the United States District Court of the District of Columbia ruled that the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), should reconsider the rule that states it is permissible for employer-sponsored wellness programs to offer inducements in exch...

We are not sick, nor are we necessarily pushing ourselves to the limit - rather, the energy we typical enjoy has mysteriously dissipated, leaving only fatigue. Many people grow accustomed to feeling this way because they do not know that it is possible to exist in any other state. The body's natural state, however, is one of energy, clarity, and balance. Cultivating these virtues in our own bodies so that we can combat feelings of depletion is a matter of developing a refined awareness of the self and then making changes based on our observations.

War of Aggression: The Saudi & UAE Slaughter in Yemen isnt a Proxy Conflict with Iran BlackListed News

Alongside their throttlehold over which reporters can visit what parts of Yemen, and thus what story they can tell, Saudi and Emirati investments in public relations, lobbying, think-tanks, and political consultants are shaping the narrative about their war there.

NASA's Lunar Orbiter pics from 1967/8 were deliberately fuzzed and downsampled to hide US spying capabilities BlackListed News

In 1967, the Lunar Orbiter missions sent back exciting -- but grainy and low-rez -- photos of the moon's surface.
