From inception, democracy in Israel was pure fantasy. Now rights for Jews alone is official with Knesset enactment of apartheid rule over Palestinian citizens.
The new Basic Law, the equivalent of US constitutional law, way exceeds contentiousness.
Palestinians and Israeli Arab citizens are discriminated against in virtually all aspects of their lives their fundamental freedoms denied, their personal safety jeopardized by what the late Edward Said called refined (Israeli) viciousness.
Ahead of enactment of Israels Nation-State law, the Adalah Legal Center for Arab Minority Rights in Israel said the following:
The Basic Law falls within the bounds of absolute prohibitions under international law and is therefore illegitimate as a colonial law with characteristics of apartheid.
Last Sunday, Adalahs general director Hassan Jabareen said:
The Nation-State Basic Law is illegitimate, as it establishes a colonial regime with distinct apartheid characteristics in that it seeks to maintain a regime in which one ethnic-national group controls an indigenous-national group living in the same territory while advancing ethnic superiority by promoting racist policies in the most basic aspects of life.
Adalah attorney Sawsan Zaher earlier explained that the Nation-State Law conveys to Israeli Arab citizens that Jewish rights are superior to theirs.
Separately, Adalah said
(n)o country in the world today is defined as a democratic state where the constitutional identity is determined by ethnic affiliation that overrides the principle of equal citizenship.
Enacting the measure illegitimately enshrines Jewish supremacy over equal rights for Arab citizens into Israeli Basic Law what apartheid is all about.
Using what scientists are describing as more sophisticated processing techniques of images, and longer exposures, new photos have been taken of our own Suns outer atmosphere, known as the corona. Theyre painting a picture of fine details being discovered that havent been observed before on the Sun, with some sort of structures that have yet to be identified.
Sort of serving to promote one Parker Solar Probe, which is going to examine the Sun and report back to people what they find (hopefully with some verifiable evidence to back their observations), a study about these solar structures was recently published in The Astrophysical Journal.
A team from the Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) used what they call a COR-2 coronagraph instrument on a NASA piece of infrastructure, the Solar and Terrestrial Relations Observatory-A (STEREO-A) to take a look at the details of our Suns outer atmosphere.
The tool is designed to capture photos of the Suns atmosphere by using what they call an occulting disc, that is a disc positioned in front of the lens that serves to block out the Sun itself from the photo, just to capture the gaseous, atmospheric corona s...

Murder, knife crime and gun violence continue to rise in England and Wales, official data reveals. Offences involving knives or sharp instruments rose by 16 percent according to police-recorded crimes. Murders rose by 12 percent. The Office for National Statistics (ONS), which examined police-recorded crime, detailed the fourth consecutive year that the murder rate has risen, with 701 cases in the year ending March 2018 - a 12-percent rise accounting for 74 cases. Over the same time period covering the first three months of 2018, which saw a surge in violent crime in London, 40,147 knife crime offences were recorded by police. Gun offences rose less dramatically, with the ONS recording a two-percent increase to 6,492 incidents. Robberies recorded by police also increased by 30 percent, while 31 percent more rapes were investigated and 21 percent more other sexual offences, in part due to the rise in sexual offences against children.
Research indicates that the consumption of wheat contributes to the growth of pathogenic bacteria in our gut, adding to growing concern that wheat (which is often contaminated with Roundup herbicide) is one of the worst foods to consume for gut health.
A concerning study published in FEMS Microbiology Ecology titled, Diversity of the cultivable human gut microbiome involved in gluten metabolism: isolation of microorganisms with potential interest for coeliac disease, reveals something remarkable about the capabilities (and liabilities) of human gut bacteria (microbiome) when exposed to foods such as wheat.
Some of the extremely hard to digest proteins in wheat colloquially known as gluten (there are actually over 23,000 identified in the wheat proteome and not just one problematic protein as widely believed) were found metabolizable through a 94 strains of bacterial species isolated from the human gut (via fecal sampling).
This discovery is all the more interesting when you consider that, according to Alessio Fasano, the Medical Director for The University of Marylands Center for Celiac Research, the human genome does not possess the ability to produce enzymes capable of sufficiently breaking down gluten.
As reported on TenderFoodie in interview:
We do not have the enzymes to break it [gluten] down. It all depends upon how well our intestinal walls clos...
TEL AVIV (Sputnik) The Israeli parliament passed constitutional law on Thursday, declaring Israel a nation-state and stipulating that only Jews had the right to self-determination.
This is a defining moment in the history of Zionism and the state of Israel Israel is a Jewish nation-state, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced.
The controversial law also declared Hebrew the only official language, stripping Arabic of the same status and designating it as a special status language.
It was passed in the 120-seat Knesset by a vote of 62 to 55, with two abstentions after hours of the heated debate and ended in applause by the ruling nationalist coalition.
Similar to a constitution, the basic laws underpin Israels legal system and are more difficult to repeal than regular laws, The Times of Israel reported, adding that the law also declares that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel, sets the Hebrew calendar as the official calendar of the state and recognizes all Jewish holidays.
The most furious protests during the debate reportedly came from Arab lawmakers. According to the Times of Israel, Joint (Arab) List MK Jamal Zahalka ripped a printed text of the bill to shreds from the podium.
I declare with astonishment and sorrow the death of democracy The funeral will take place today in the plenum, his fellow party member Ahmad Tibi was quoted as saying by The Times of Israel.
Arabs make up a fifth of the countrys eight-million-strong population and have frequently accused the government of discrimination, including against Palestinian refugees, millions of whom have been trying to return to their ancestral homes after being banished during the creation of Israel.

From Leiden University in the Netherlands:
16 July 2018
Children find that both dinosaur fossils and replicas belong in a museum, but they appreciate the real objects more. This is shown by research from Leiden University and Naturalis Biodiversity Center. Children look beyond superficial looks and attach great value to less obvious characteristics, such as the history of an object.
Science museums find it important to show real objects to their audience. Not so strange, when the question Is it real? is one of the most frequently asked questions by museum visitors. But, how do visitors interpret the difference between real and fake? And how do they value real objects? To this end, Masters student Dylan van Gerven and researcher Anne Land-Zandstra of Leiden University together with Welmoet Damsma of Naturalis examined how children think about real dinosaur fossils and about replicas. The results of the research can help museums to bring their objects to life more.
In Naturalis seventy children from eight to twelve years old got to work with the Dinometer: a life-sized abacus on which they indicated how much certain objects belonged in a museum. It involved two real objects and two replicas. The two real objects were a T. rex phalanx and the paw print of a dinosaur. The two replicas of the phalanx looked identical, but one had supposedly belonged to famous TV biologist...
The sun has been blank for 21 straight days-a remarkable 3 weeks without sunspots. This is an almost decade-class event. The last time the sun lost its spots for 21 consecutive days was in the year 2009 coming on the heels of an historic solar minimum. With the current stretch of blank suns, solar minimum conditions have definitely returned. To find an equal stretch of spotless suns in the historical record, you have to go back to July-August 2009 when the sun was emerging from a century-class solar minimum. We are now entering a new solar minimum, possibly as deep as the last one.
Wildcat Birthright! Yesterday two more Birthright tours of Israel were struck by walkouts in Jerusalem. Two from one group, six from another group- making 13 in all to stage these walkouts (and the dissidents are overwhelmingly women). Birthright offers free trips to Israel for Jews 18-26, paid for by Israel supporters. One of these tours was about to visit the "City of David," the settlement just south of the Old City walls that is confiscating Palestinian properties in Silwan. The young people refused to take part in the settlement tour, preferring to meet the Sumarin family, which has faced endless eviction threats from the settler-state, and then to meet Palestinians at the great Wadi Hilweh information center in Silwan. A member of the Sumarin family honors the solidarity: "Truly this is something important for us and this house, your coming here."
Controversial billionaire George Soros said Barack Obama was his "greatest disappointment," who "closed the door" on him despite lavish support. He now eyes going bipartisan instead. In a candid interview with the New York Times, Hungarian-born billionaire financier George Soros admitted that he became disillusioned with former President Barack Obama. Obama was "actually my greatest disappointment," he told the Times' Michael Steinberger. Soros said he had hoped Obama - who he heavily supported during the 2008 race - would seek his advice on finance and economics, but was instead frozen out.
Ukraine's neo-Nazi problem doesn't get a lot of attention in the Western press. Its leaders, however, see no shortage of love from Washington. One such leader is Andriy Parubiy, the speaker of Ukraine's parliament, the Verkhovna Rada, who received a distinguished welcome in DC earlier this week. Journalist and New York Times bestselling author Max Blumenthal joined Radio Sputnik's Loud & Clear to talk about his confrontation with the neo-Nazi leader at a Senate building in the nation's capital on Monday and more in a wide-ranging interview. "Parubiy was in Washington, actually for the second time," Blumenthal said. "Last year he had a meeting with John McCain, of course, and Paul Ryan, Republican Speaker of the House. And this year he met with Ryan and some State Department officials," Blumenthal told Loud & Clear hosts John Kiriakou and Brian Becker. "Then, he was welcomed in this press conference at the Senate Hart Building. It was a totally packed room, filled with [Capitol] Hill staffers, lots of media, lots of foreign policy people - I mean major foreign policy people who worked on Eastern Europe in the Obama administration, Trump administration." Blumenthal noted the "bipartisan consensus on display in the room."

A top intelligence official at the National Security Council (NSC) is reportedly leaving the White House. Michael Barry, senior NSC director for intelligence programs, is leaving the council as part of national security adviser John Bolton's major staffing overhaul, two government officials told the Daily Beast. One source quoted in the report Tuesday said that Barry is leaving on "very good terms," but that his departure will be a "tough loss." Barry is reportedly returning to the CIA, where he served before joining the NSC. President Trump's former national security adviser H.R. McMaster hired Barry to replace Ezra Cohen-Watnick, who reportedly butted heads with other officials before being fired in August, according to the Daily Beast. Several officials have left the NSC since Bolton was appointed in April. He has said that he wants to reshape the council, but it is unclear what his desired structure is. Most recently, a senior director in the NSC was reportedly pushed out of the council for clashing with White House aide Stephen Miller.
Donald Trump says that recent hysteria whipped up by the "Fake News Media" about his summit with Vladimir Putin shows that the US press is eager for a "major confrontation" with Russia, one that could even lead to war. "The Fake News Media wants so badly to see a major confrontation with Russia, even a confrontation that could lead to war. They are pushing so recklessly hard and hate the fact that I'll probably have a good relationship with Putin. We are doing MUCH better than any other country!" the US president tweeted on Thursday. Shortly after accusing the media of pushing for confrontation with Russia, Trump tweeted that he looked forward to meeting Putin again so that the two leaders could finalize plans for cooperation between Washington and Moscow.
JERUSALEM After several days of rushing and intense debates, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had his wish come true. He urgently wanted to get the Nation State bill passed into law before the Knesset goes into summer recess on July 22, and for several days now the Knesset committee charged with ironing out the bill was delaying the process with long discussions. Now the law passed 62 to 55 and 2 abstentions. In an almost symbolic act of racism, the Palestinian members of the Knesset were kicked out of the chamber following the vote because of their vocal protests.
Now, with the haggling and the opposition members delay tactics over, the final version of the bill has been approved by the Knesset. This law, which has been described as the legislative Flagship of the current government, is officially named Basic Law Israel as The Nation State of the Jewish People has become one of Israels Basic Laws laws that, in the absence of a Constitution, have constitutional standing.
This law has been discussed for several years now; it has evolved, however, and has become extreme to a degree that even right-wing politicians like ...
If you did man-on-the-street interviews across America and asked people about Social Security, I suspect most of them would have some degree of understanding about the programs looming fiscal crisis.
Since theyre not policy wonks, they presumably wouldnt know the magnitude of the problem (not that I blame them since I once underestimated the shortfall by $16 trillion).
I also doubt many of them would be able to explain why the so-called Trust Fund is an accounting fiction, which is understandable since even supposedly knowledgeable people pretend IOUs are real assets.

The University of Minnesota is considering a policy to discipline students or professors who refuse to call someone by their preferred gender pronoun, with penalties that could include being fired or expelled. The draft policy under review may change, but as of now it states that "university members and units are expected to use the names, gender identities and pronouns specified to them by university members, except as legally required." When someone does not go along with a person whose biological sex does not match their preferred gender - such as refusing to call a biological man a woman - it is called "misgendering" and is considered harassment by secular progressives. Indeed, some have even suggested refusing to recognize someone's preferred gender amounts to "violence." Comment: Even if everyone were to agree that deliberate "misgendering" is mean and wrong (just for the sake of argument), this policy does not take intent into account. What if someone accidentally misgenders someone? Is that cause for firing or expulsion? Because it's impossible to prove one way or the other. All we have are the subjective feelings of the misgendered person. "I've come to understand after all these years of experience that calling a transgender woman a man is an act of violence," transgender actress Laverne Cox once told an audience of college students, prompting them to applause wildly. Comment: No, it's not, actually. Violence denotes physical aggression. Get a new word. It may be cruelty, depending on the context, but violence it is not. The proposed policy at the University of Minnesota states that misgendering someone may result in "disciplinary action up to and including termination from employment and academic sanctions up to and including academic expulsion."
A Georgia man and his mother are planning to sue the Floyd County Sheriff's Department after her son was tased and tortured while in police custody, and the disturbing incident was captured on video. In 2017, Juan Porter asked a motorist to call the police and claimed he had been attacked by four men. Upon arrival, instead of hunting for the perpetrators, the officers arrested the man, who was 21 at the time, for being drunk. When he was taken to the Floyd County jail, Porter reportedly became belligerent and was subsequently tased while inside his holding cell. But that wasn't what caused Porter's mother, Felicia Curry, to become upset so much as what happened after Porter was removed from his jail cell. One of the deputies stood behind Porter as he was signing some paperwork for his release and dry-fired his taser in an attempt to scare and intimidate Porter. Sgt. Matthew Battle-who had just tasered Porter in his cell-triggered the taser multiple times in an effort to incite fear.

The Israeli Knesset has approved the 'nation-state bill' that promotes Jewish-only settlements, downgrades Arab language status and limits the right to self-determination to Jews. Arab MPs chided the law as racist. The bill, which has the status of a basic law (approximately the same as a constitutional law in countries with a written constitution), was passed overnight to Thursday with 62 votes in favor and 55 against after hours of fierce argument and debate. It will now come into force as soon as it's published in the Knesset's Official Gazette. The law, which had been in the works since 2011, has sparked a wave of protests, which spilled over the Israeli border and angered the influential Jewish diaspora in the US. The bill formally defines the main principles that should stand at the core of the Israeli state and its symbols, such as the flag, the anthem, its capital and language. In a clause that set Arab lawmakers off, the bill explicitly states that "the right to exercises national determination in the State of Israel is unique to the Jewish people."
Twitter suspended at least 58 million user accounts in the final three months of 2017, according to data obtained by The Associated Press. The figure highlights the company's newly aggressive stance against malicious or suspicious accounts in the wake of Russian disinformation efforts during the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign. Last week, Twitter confirmed a Washington Post report that it had suspended 70 million accounts in May and June. The cavalcade of suspensions has raised questions as to whether the crackdown could affect Twitter's user growth and whether the company should have warned investors earlier. The company has been struggling with user growth compared to rivals like Instagram and Facebook. The number of suspended accounts originated with Twitter's "firehose," a data stream it makes available to academics, companies and others willing to pay for it. The new figure sheds light on Twitter's attempt to improve "information quality" on its service, its term for countering fake accounts, bots, disinformation and other malicious occurrences. Such activity was rampant on Twitter and other social-media networks during the 2016 campaign, much of it originating with the Internet Research Agency, a since-shuttered Russian "troll farm" implicated in election-disruption efforts by the U.S. special counsel and congressional investigations. Comment: How much is that? Did the Internet Research Agency create hundreds of millions of fake accounts? A percentage of that? Without figures saying exactly how much, this just looks like a convenient way of reinforcing the idea that Russians are behind all that is evil on the Internet. Consider this: in January Twitter revealed it found 3,814 accounts "believed" to be Russian trolls tied to IRA (at least some of whom were not, in fact). In September, Facebook id'd around 470 IRA-linked accounts. Hmm, 3,814 alleged Russians. 58 million account suspensions. That sure sounds like "much", now, doesn't it?
The Israel Defense Force's "modesty rules" which ban female soldiers from wearing white shirts, removing their bras and smoking near men to prevent "womanly temptation" for religious soldiers is infuriating its targets. Israel's Women's Network has reported that female recruits are being restricted by rules that dictate their dress and behavior because of the rising number of Ultra-Orthodox religious soldiers in the army. "The dozens of testimonies that have reached us at the hotline for female soldiers in the past year and a half attest to what we've known for a long time. Commanders in the field deviate from the army's orders and enforce bizarre modesty rules on the female soldiers, and prevent them from doing their jobs," Managing Director of the Israel Women's Network, Michal Gera Margaliot told Haaretz.
There are powerful people in the US who steer the entire country on the path of confrontation with Russia, President Vladimir Putin warned, adding that the Kremlin must take this factor into account. The warning came as Putin was addressing the senior members of the Russian diplomatic corps in Moscow. He spoke off the script to warn Russian ambassadors of the danger posed by Russia-haters in America. "We can see forces in the United States, which would easily sacrifice Russian-American relationship for the sake of their ambitions in domestic political struggle in America. They would sacrifice the interests of the US business, which loses contracts and ties in Russia, US jobs, few as they may be, that rely on Russian-American cooperation," Putin said.

Russia's Defense Ministry has released a new batch of videos of cutting-edge weapons, first unveiled by President Vladimir Putin back in March. The footage shows new tests, as well as gives a grasp of the development process. The impressive set of new weapons was unveiled by Putin during his annual speech before the Federation Council back in March. The futuristic armaments, some of which are already in service, are designed to give Russia a strong deterrence against any aggression against the country.
By now its not exactly news that the U.S. military would love nothing more than to create mind-controlled soldiers. Since the inception of Activist Post weve been reporting about technologies such as transcranial magnetic stimulation that could be added to soldiers helmets as a way of altering their brain activity.
DARPA, at the behest of the Pentagon, has been at the forefront of nearly all military mind control programs and continues to invest tens of millions of taxpayer funds into moving this technology forward. They have looked at various methods, via remote brain wave stimulation as well as the more direct microchip implant (Neural Engineering System Design in their parlance) in order to create the much-touted super soldier of the future.
However, DARPAs new round of investment seeks to go beyond what has even been discussed thus far. As reported by Nextgov, the future soldier would mentally link up with the various weapons systems at their disposal. Disturbingly, this would also be a two-way system that could enable the systems to transmit information back to the soldier as well.
Today, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency is selecting teams to develop a neural interface that would both allow troops to connect to military systems using their brainwaves and let those systems transmit back information directly to users brains.
The Next-Generation Non-Surgical Neurotechnology, or N3, program aims to combine the speed and processing power of computers with humans ability to adapt to complex situations, DARPA said. In other words, the technology would let people control, feel and interact with a remote machine as though it were a part of their own body.
As Nextgov correctly points out later in the article, this technology has been openly sought since at least the 1960s, and they have since proven that at least limited brain-computer interface programs are operable. However, this largely has been done in the area of prosthetics for the disabled, or the aforementioned limited tests with brainwave stimulus through a helmet.

It turns out that there ARE a ton of studies out there that indicate that yes, it looks bad. Of course, there is also the SAR "heating effect" argument, which is part of the problem as we'll see...
Polish concerns over possible Russian military aggression make no sense, the country's former Prime Minister Leszek Miller has admitted in an interview with Sputnik. Allegations of a military threat posed by Russia are a central pretext for much of Polish foreign policy and make up an enormous portion of Polish political discourse. References to such a "Russian threat" have undergirded recent programs adopted to increase the capacity of the Polish army and "justify" the fact that Poland is already de-facto occupied by US and NATO troops under the pretext of defending "NATO's Eastern Flank" from "Russian aggression." Recently, Poland also officially proposed to allocate up to $2 billion to have an armored division of the United States stationed on its soil. This is a strange fact considering it is usually the foreign military which maintains upkeep costs for its occupation forces.
The Iranian UN mission has officially denied Israeli claims that Mossad had managed to obtain thousands of secret documents from a warehouse in Tehran allegedly proving that Iran had violated the nuclear deal. "Iran has always been clear that creating indiscriminate weapons of mass destruction is against what we stand for as a country, and the notion that Iran would abandon any kind of sensitive information in some random warehouse in Tehran is laughably absurd," a spokesman from the Iranian mission said, according to the NYT. "It's almost as if they are trying to see what outlandish claims they can get a Western audience to believe," the spokesman added. The Iranian mission's response follows claims in the US media involving a daring Mossad operation this past winter to steel thousands of nuclear weapons program-related documents from a warehouse in the Iranian capital in January. Israel claimed its agents stole some 50,000 pages of information, as well as over 160 compact discs containing videos and other materials.
The inside-the-beltway crowd was absolutely outraged and appalled by Trumps performance at Helsinki. There, Trump violated all the principles of American hawkishness. He sat next to Vladimir Putin, leader of a rival power, signaling that Russia is a peer. He sided with Putin over the assessments of the CIA, the NSA and other US intelligence organizations (they are 16, and mostly redundant since they are under pressure to conform to one another). He denied Russian attempts to influence the 2016 elections. He declined to press Russian president Vladimir Putin on his annexation of the Crimea or border clashes with Ukraine, or the poisoning of his critics while they were in the UK, or Putins crackdown on the press and on his political opponents.
While Putins behavior has been objectionable, there is something profoundly hypocritical about the US elite pretending that the US doesnt embrace people like Putin all the time.
Take Israeli prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu. He is guilty of most of the same infractions held against Putin. Netanyahu openly campaigned for the Republican candidates in 2012 and 2016. He openly interfered in US politics by insisting on addressing Congress to derail the Iran nuclear deal (a quest in which he ultimately succeeded, putting the US closer to war footing with Iran).
In fact, Netanyahu was one of those foreign influencers pushing Trump to do a grand bargain with . . . Vladimir Putin. The Israeli leader allegedly pushed for lifting of US sanctions on Putin and his circle in return for Putin pushing Iran out of Syria. (Note that in this scenario Netanyahu makes out like a bandit but the US gets almost nothing in return for essentially recognizing the Russian annexation of Crimea).
Netanyahu runs spy rings against the United States far more aggressive and extensive than those of European countries, the seriousness of which Congressional staffers have found sobering.
Netanyahu is in the process of annexing the Palestinian West Bank, to which he has much less claim in international law than Putin does to the Crimea. (The Soviet Union assigned Crimea to Ukraine only in the 1950s, when the latter was a Soviet socialist republic, but Russian possession of it went back to the eighteenth century). Netanyahu is presiding over an Apartheid state in which 4.5 million of the 12.5 million people controlled by the Israeli government are stateless and besieged or patrolled by the Israeli military.
Netanyahu has even had people poisoned.

Despite breathless reports insisting that President Donald Trump betrayed America by meeting with Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, a vast majority of Republicans approve of his dealings with Moscow, according to a new poll. The Reuters/Ipsos survey, which was conducted after the headline-grabbing summit, found that 71 percent of the president's Republican base thinks that Trump is doing a good job with his handling of Russia - compared to only 14 percent of Democrats. "Trump still enjoys broad support among Republican voters despite criticism from party leaders" about the outcome of his meeting with Putin, according to Reuters.
TRANSCRIPT AND SOURCES: https://www.corbettreport.com/?p=19760 In the days after 9/11, while Ground Zero continued to smolder, millions heard Dan Rather and various media outlets repeat vague and unconfirmed reports of arrests that took place that day. These rumors held that Middle Eastern men, presumably Arabs, were arrested in explosive-packed vans in various places around the city on September 11th and that some had even been photographing and celebrating those events. What most do not realize is that those reports were not mere rumors, and we now have thousands of pages of FBI, CIA and DOJ reports documenting those arrests.

TEL AVIV, ISRAEL Israels government has instructed the countrys military to prepare for a major military offensive against the Gaza Strip if the launching of incendiary kites and balloons over the Gaza-Israel border is not stopped by this Friday. If those objects continue to cross the border, Israel may decide it has no choice but to embark on a military campaign intended to conquer all of Gaza, according to a report that aired on Israels Channel 10 News on Tuesday and was cited by the Times of Israel.
Israel has claimed that the burning kites and balloons have caused significant damage to nearby farmland and are equivalent to arson attacks. Palestinians, however, consider them a form of legitimate resistance to the blockade of the Strip now in its 11th year which has crippled the population economically and resulted in chronic shortages of electricity, fuel, and other basic necessities. The dire situation in Gaza is widely believed to be nearing a dangerous climax, with the vast majority of Gazan drinking water being nonpotable and the UN warning that the entire strip will be uninhabitable in less than two years.
The Channel 10 News report asserted that Israel had delivered its ultimatum to Hamas, which has been democratically elected to govern the Strip since 2007, through Egyptian intelligence officials. Hamas then told those officials that they would work to stop the launching of all burning materials over the border by this Friday in a bid to prevent another war. The report claimed that 60 percent of Hamas positions along the Strips border were currently being focused on stopping the launches and that all of its border positions would join those efforts by Friday.
However, Palestinian sources cited by the report claimed that Hamas would only be successful in those efforts were the dire humanitarian situation in Gaza to be relieved in some way, such as the reopening of the Rafah border crossing between Gaza and Egypt. That crossing has been closed for over 24 hours owing to technical issues on the Egyptian side of the border and is expected to reopen sometime Wednesday.

As Emery Smiths security clearance was raised, he was allowed to go the deeper into the underground base, enabling him to work with a wider range of un-Earth beings. This included various tall whites, Nordics, avians, reptilians and bigfoot-type beings. He gives us intricate details of these creatures, including how they dressed, communicated, moved and smelled.
David Wilcock: Welcome back to Cosmic Disclosure. Im your host, David Wilcock, and were here with our special guest, Emery Smith, continuing our fascinating discussion about the co-workers that he actually interacted with as live beings while in the underground facilities.
Emery, welcome back.
Emery Smith: Thanks, Dave. Excited to be here.
David: What was the very first extraterrestrial that you saw on these bases, like the first time you actually saw a living being that was not human like us?
Emery: Thats the Tall Whites.
David: Ah, okay.
Emery: Yeah, absolutely.
David: So could you tell us a little bit more about that first meeting? Because, obviously, I would think the very first time you actually see a living being thats clearly not one of us, it has to be just an absolute landmark moment in your entire life.
Emery: Well, actually, indirectly, by seeing these from afar, and seeing these through different windows and different programs, and then reading about them, I had a really good understanding of what was going on way before I was even getting able to see these, by researching programs that I was allowed to.
Emery: So theyre breaking you in first just by watching videos and reading books and reading things on their database system that have to do with the past of working with these beings and these creatures.
David: So lets open up this Tall White discussion, because there has been some confusion in terms of, for example, certain discrepancies between the whistleblower named Charles Hall, and what he called Tall Whites, whose eyes seemed to be more like Greys, but had a bluish tinge.
We have Pete Peterson whos described his experience with Tall Whites, and he said that it doesnt really mean any one type. It just is a classification based on their appearance.

More than 40,000 plants sourced from tropical forests in 30 countries populate the four-story glass edifice, which doubles as a workspace and lounge for company employees. During the day, the lush vegetation is kept healthy at a temperate 72 degrees and 60 percent humidity, mimicking Costa Rica's Central Valley, a haven for expats who have left their home countries for paradise. The cavernous structure also includes waterfalls, winding canopy walkways, and fish from the actual Amazon River. Heat is piped in using recycled energy from a nearby data center, ensuring that downtown Seattle's warmest respite isn't a drag on the power grid. Outside the spheres, the city is a colder place. In the nearby neighborhood of Wallingford, a newly erected outpost of small wooden shacks offer shelter for 22 of Seattle's homeless residents. This is a "tiny house village," sanctioned by the city as a kind of middle ground between living at a street address and on the street. The buildings sit in the corner of a parking lot across from a seafood restaurant, shielded from view by a metal fence. Each shack, painted with one of the bold colors of a Crayola starter pack, offers electricity and a roof sturdier than the tents in Seattle's increasingly common homeless encampments. Every resident is issued a window fan for the occasional hot day, and the people here hope to receive heaters before winter. But the small collections of potted petunias and pothos that sit in front of their temporary homes are unlikely to survive the city's harshest months.
On July 19th, Israel adopted a new basic law that declares the country as the nation state of the Jewish people. In essence it declares that only Jews have the right of self-determination in the country. Furthermore, it set Hebrew as the official state language, removing Arabic. Arabic, according to the law will now have a "special status", thus making it still usable within Israeli institutions. The law also declares that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel, sets the Hebrew calendar as the official calendar of the state, and recognizes Independence Day, days of remembrance and Jewish holidays. The "nation-state" law passed with a 62-55 backing, backed by the right-wing government, with two members of the Knesset, Israel's parliament, abstaining. The legislation is defined as a "basic law," granting it quasi-constitutional status. Reuters reports that after the vote Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told the Knesset: "This is a defining moment in the annals of Zionism and the history of the state of Israel." A deeply controversial clause that had been seen as more specifically legalizing the establishment of Jewish-only communities was changed after it drew criticism, including from Israeli President Reuven Rivlin, RTL reports.
JERUSALEMIsraeli police have briefly detained a liberal rabbi in the city of Haifa over performing illegal Jewish weddings without authorization of the countrys chief rabbinate.
Rabbi Dubi Haiyun, who belongs to the Conservative Judaism movement, wrote on Facebook on Thursday that police woke him at 5:30 a.m. and took him in for questioning.
He says Haifas Orthodox rabbinical court filed a complaint against me for performing weddings.
Police said Haiyun was arrested after not heeding a summons. He was later released but the case wasnt closed and he needs to appear before police on Monday.
Jewish weddings in Israel can only legally be performed by the Orthodox rabbinate, which other streams of Judaism consider an impingement on religious freedoms.
Opposition lawmakers denounced Haiyuns arrest as a violation of religious freedom.
(HRW) A district court of appeal in Lebanon issued a groundbreaking ruling on July 12, 2018 that consensual sex between people of the same sex is not unlawful.
The ruling follows similar judgments from lower courts that have declined to convict gay and transgender people of sexual intercourse contrary to nature in four separate rulings between 2007 and 2017. It is the first such ruling from an appeals court and moves Lebanon further toward decriminalizing homosexual conduct.
This ruling signals a new horizon for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people in Lebanon, who have long been persecuted under discriminatory laws, said Neela Ghoshal, senior researcher on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights at Human Rights Watch. The court has effectively ordered the state to get out of peoples bedrooms.
Activists in Lebanon have long fought to end the use of Article 534 of the Penal Code to prosecute consensual same-sex conduct. The law is a colonial relic, put in place by the French mandate in the early 1900s, and punishes any sexual intercourse contrary to the order of nature with up to one year in prison. It has at times been enthusiastically wielded to persecute LGBT people, often affecting particularly vulnerable groups including transgender women and Syrian refugees.
This recent ruling related to the 2015 arrest of nine people in a suburb of Beirut whom police suspected of being gay and transgender. A criminal court declined to convict them of unnatural offenses in 2017, with the judge saying that homosexuals have a right to human and intimate relationships with whoever they want, without any interference or discrimination in terms of their sexual inclinations, as it is the case with other people.
Prosecutors appealed the acquittal to the Court of Criminal Appeal in Mount Lebanon, where a three-judge bench decided in a majority ruling to uphold the acquittal. The appeals court ruled that the penal code should be interpreted in accordance with common sense and principles of social justice. It found that consensual sex between adults of the same sex cannot be considered unnatural as long as it does not violate morality and ethics, for instance, when it is seen or heard by others, or performed in a public place, or involving a minor who must...
BOGOTA, COLOMBIA Leaked reports from the Colombian Armed Forces have alleged that scattered groups of dissident former members of the dissolved Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia Peoples Army (FARC-EP) plan to hold a guerilla conference and formally unite as a large new guerilla force in the countrys lawless border regions and rural countryside.
The publication of the military leak is one of several signals that augur poorly for the continuation of the Colombian peace process, which right-wing President-elect Ivan Duque had long lambasted for its alleged failure to punish the leftist former guerillas.
The reports, carried by the weekly Colombian magazine Semana, allege that the three commanders of the so-called 1st Front, active in the southern and central rural zones of Colombia, plan to fuse 11 disparate groups of ex-FARC combatants. Together these groups would amount to anywhere between 1,300 to 4,000 members, according to various sources.
The primary motivation, the reports claim, isnt to expand a revolutionary base among the rural masses but to protect their criminal rackets such as drug trafficking, illegal mining, and other illicit economic activities.
The commanders have been identified as Gener Garcia Molina, alias John 40; Edgar Salgado, or Rodrigo Cadete; and Miguel Botache, or Gentil Duarte. The reports claim that the troika of former leaders began planning the foundation of a new rural insurgent group about a year and a half ago in November 2016, when the FARC guerrillas began surrendering their arms and demobilizing thousands of combatants.
The reports further claim that the 11 dissident factions are currently divided into 29 different cells, with a presence in 18 provinces (departments) in the country and around 120 municipalities.
The members hope to assemble 8,000 combatants by the end of 2019. Rather than conscripting new members from their rural base, the FARC dissident groups are allegedly paying new recruits a salary.
Outgoing President Juan Manuel Santos blasted the report as irresponsible and sensationalistic journalism that blows the alleged plan for a new force out of proportion. Speaking to television journalist Mara Jimena Duzn, Santos criticized the Semana cover story, noting that the contents of the report didnt resemble the magazines cover, which read THE PLAN TO REFOUND THE FARC:
If you read the article, it has...
Four persons were killed and 12 others were injured in separate incidents of lightning strikes in different parts of the state on Sunday. According to available information, Jhunu Gouda (18) and Latika Gouda (19) of Mahaguda village under Sanakodanda gram panchayat in Ganjam district were working in the agricultural field along with 12 other women when lightning struck them. The injured persons were rushed to Bhanjanagar hospital where doctors pronounced the duo brought dead. The bodies will be handed over to the family members after post-mortem on Monday, police said.
Sacha Baron Cohen has duped dozens of high-profile politicians and celebrities, including Sarah Palin and a handful of Congressmen, who are featured in segments on his new show Who Is America? While watching the thinly disguised actor deliver his absurd questions, its almost impossible not to wonder: How do these people fall for this? But even an actor as skilled as Cohen isnt able to dupe everybody.
So when one gun store owner in Riverside, Calif. recognized Cohen mid-shoot, things got a little testy. Norris Sweidan, the owner of Warrior One Guns & Ammo, recounted his story to Fox 11.
The incident unfolded at Warrior One Guns & Ammo in February 2017. Owner Norris Sweidan said Cohen and a camera crew met him at his store, claiming to be filming a documentary about a Hungarian immigrant wanting to buy a gun. Immediately, Sweidan said, something about the situation just didnt seem right.
He comes in, off the bat you can see in the video Im looking like, this guy does not look like a Hungarian immigrant, tight ass leather pants, a beard, it just didnt fit, Sweidan said. The moment his words came out of his mouth I was like this guy is full of s***.
As soon as Sweidan realized who he was dealing with, he called Cohen out
Im looking at the producer and Im just like am I being fooled right here? Sweidan said. And I just kept looking at the guy and I was like youre Borat, as soon as I said that his eyes just looked at me like, and he did a turn right out the door.
Prompting Cohen to walk out and leave his crew behind.
Were talking to the people they dont wanna give us an answer, we basically told them to get the f*** out, you guys are all full of s***, have a great day, get out, Sweidan said.
Sweidan said he immediately realized what Cohen was up to, and was not pleased.
Once I knew it was Borat, we already know his game and his bull*****, so we knew hes here to make a mockery, and of what? Gun owners? The gun business, gun shops, Sweidan said.
The gun store owner also had a few choice words for the fi...
PARISA security aide to French President Emmanuel Macron has been seen in a video wearing a police helmet and beating up a student protester. His punishment a two-week suspension has brought criticism down on Macron.
Responding to public backlash, the presidents spokesman said on Monday that the suspension without pay and change in responsibilities for Alexandre Benalla was the most serious ever given at the presidential palace.
In addition, a judicial official said a preliminary investigation has been opened for violence by someone charged with a public service mission among other things. The official wasnt authorized to speak publicly and demanded anonymity.
The video of the May 1 event shows Benalla dragging off a woman then beating a young man on the ground.
Readers of the Duck will be very familiar with Duck editor Josh Busbys commentary on climate change and security, U.S. foreign policy, and a host of other topics. Earlier this year, Bridging the Gap (BTG) awarded Josh a Policy Engagement Fellowship (PEF). The purpose of this fellowship is to support efforts by scholars to connect their research on international issues to the policy community. Josh is using his PEF to write policy-oriented pieces and organize events with practitioners on the role of actors other than the U.S. federal government in combating climate change. This work builds on Joshs prior research on various dimensions of climate change and is particularly timely as the United States under Donald Trump retreats from a leadership role or even a constructive role on this critical global challenge.
BTG recently asked Josh some questions about his overall research agenda, his climate change work, and engaging with policy communities and the public. In addition to the work highlighted below, keep an eye out for a forthcoming Atlantic Council report by Josh and Nigel Purvis on leadership in the climate regime, which will draw on a memo Josh wrote for a BTG workshop on public goods last fall.
BTG: Your work has examined issues ranging from climate change to global health to U.S. foreign policy. Whats motivated your choices of particular research topics?
JB: I was an anti-apartheid activist in high school and an environment and development campaigner in college so Ive been drawn to big global issues since I was young. My first two books were on social movements and whether and how they could exercise influence on foreign policy. As an American, it was a natural fit for me to focus my energies on my home country. My goals were mostly normative. That is, these were big issues I cared about and wanted to write about in my scholarly work.
BTG: You just published an article on climate change in the July/August 2018 issue of Foreign Affairs. What was your intention/hope when writing the piece?
JB: Despite the politics of the moment, climate change isnt going away as an issue. Its an urgent threat that will increasingly command more attention and resources. What I wanted to do with that piece is bring together two different strands of my research on climate change: (1) on climate governance and (2) climate and security. Those issues are often discussed in isolation so I wanted t...
Right Stuff For Life Found on Saturns Moon Enceladus
By Joe Pappalardo
Via Georgia Tech, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences
Its hard to get over putting your lifes work in harms way. Britney Schmidt hasnt. The Georgia Tech researcher has tested the limits of underwater robots swimming beneath Antarctic ice shelves, a dry run for looking for life in outer space, and it hasnt gotten any easier.
Anytime you take your whole programs work and dangle it off of a fiber optic cable through meters of iceits a little unnerving, Schmidt tells Popular Mechanics, emailing from the Antarctic research station on the south tip of Ross Island.
This week, Schmidt and her team of researchers are leaving the Antarctic after a busy three months at the far end of the Earth. They are testing Icefin, a drone built to explore the extreme ecosystems lurking beneath thick ice. The waters beneath our planets ice sheet are fascinating, turning up species few people have ever laid eyes on. But they are not the final target of this chase.
Icefin is meant to search for alien lifea bug hunt, as some scientists cheerfully call it. It is bound for the icy waters of Jupiters moon, Europa, possibly as soon as 2030.The new equipment includes new sensorsto see if Europa could support the rise of life.
Icefin is capable of deploying through small drill holes in the ice, similar to what will one day be needed to explore Europa, Schmidt says. In the meantime, this project is looking to understand how ice-ocean interactions operate in Antarctica, and how these processes may couple to biological communities.
Like many subsea drones, the 10-foot-long Icefin is shaped like a torpedo. It made headlines in 2014 as one of the prototype drones that plumbed the Antarctic as part of a NASA program to test the technology. Now, a new program called the Ross Ice Shelf and Europa Underwater Probe (RISE UP), NASA is funding three expeditions to put an upgraded Icefin under the ice. This was its first deployment.
The new equipment includes sensors to monitor for organics and measure environmental factors like the presen...
An enigma of the ocean has been photographed by passengers travelling on a ferry from Portsmouth to Spain. Confirmed sightings of True's beaked whales have only been made three times previously in the North Atlantic. Science's understanding of beaked whales has mostly been made from the stranding of dead animals. But this group of the whales - estimated at being 16 foot (five metres) long - were spotted breaching the waters off the coast off Santander earlier this month.
In my four years as High Commissioner, I have heard many preposterous claims. That claim is almost in its own category of absurdity. Have you no shame, sir, have you no shame? We are not fools.
These were some of the remarks made by outgoing United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Raad al-Hussein, in his final briefing to the Human Rights Council on July 4. He was responding to a Burmese officials claim that his country is not targeting Rohingya in a genocidal campaign but is defending the rights of all of its citizen.
The Burmese government is now at par with the Israeli government, both practicing ethnic-cleansing and murder while insisting that they are fighting terrorism.
In both Tel Aviv and Yangon, the two governments are cracking down on journalists who dare expose their phony democracies and wars on terror.
On June 18, the Israeli government endorsed a bill that seeks to criminalize filming of Israeli soldiers for the sake of shaming them. The language of the bill was purposely broad as it simply attempts to prevent the documenting of the violent practices of the Israeli army against Palestinians.
It should come as no surprise that Israel is one of the main suppliers of weapons to Burma.
Israels pseudo-democracy is also, in many ways, similar to Burmas. In Israel, Jews are the privileged group; democracy and human rights applies to them and not to Palestinians.
In Burma, the Buddhist majority receives special treatment in comparison with the countrys minorities, especially the Rohingya who, for years, have been victim to a massive government-led campaign of genocide and ethnic cleansing.
Nearly 700,000 Rohingya Muslims were forced to flee from their homes in the Northern Rakhine State in Burma last year alone. They have been exiled mostly to Bangladesh. Many of the refugees are forced into deplorable existence in prison-like, extremely crowded refugee camps in the no mans land between Burma and Bangladesh.
Even before the last exodus, hundreds of thousands of Rohingya were already living in exile, as the Burmese armys ethnic cleansing of its ill-fated minorities has been in the making for years.
Despite a recent burst of media attention, however, Western governments, which are eagerly welcoming Burmas former junta government to the democratic world are yet to carry out any meaningful a...
JERUSALEMIsraels parliament approved a controversial piece of legislation on Thursday that defines the country as the nation-state of the Jewish people but which critics warn sidelines minorities.
The government says the bill, passed in the early morning hours, will merely enshrine into law Israels existing character. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called its passage a historic moment in the history of Zionism and the history of the state of Israel.
Israel is the nation state of the Jewish people, which honors the individual rights of all its citizens, he said. I repeat this is our state. The Jewish state.
Lately, there are people who are trying to destabilize this and therefore destabilize the foundations of our existence and our rights, he added. So today we have made a law in stone. This is our country. This is our language. This is our anthem and this is our flag. Long live the state of Israel.
Israels 1948 declaration of independence defined its nature as a Jewish and democratic state, a delicate balance the country has grappled to maintain for 70 years.
Opponents of the new bill say it marginalizes the countrys Arab minority of around 20 percent and also downgrades Arabic language from official to special standing.
The law passed with a 62-55 backing, with two members of the Knesset abstaining. The legislation, defined as a basic law, granting it quasi-constitutional status, will likely face a challenge at the Supreme Court.
Lawmakers took turns to passionately express their views in a rowdy, hours-long debate in parliament overnight.
Ayman Odeh, the head of the Arab Joint List, pulled out a black flag and waved it during his speech, warning of the implications of the law.
This is an evil law, he told lawmakers, adding that a black flag hovers over it.
Today, I will have to tell my children, along with all the children of Palestinian Arab towns that the state has declared that it does not want us here, Odeh said in a statement later. It has passed a law of Jewish supremacy and told us that we will always be second-class citizens.
Benny Begin, son of former Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin, the founder of Netanyahus ruling Likud party, abstained from voting, warning of the partys growing disconnect from human rights.
This is not a decision I expected from the Likud leadership, he said.
Eugene Kontorovich, international law director at the Kohelet Policy Forum, a conservative Jerusalem think tank, defended the bill, arguing it is similar to provisions in many Western democratic constitutions, which provide for an official language and national character that reflects the majority of the population.
Kontorovich dismissed the faux outrage against the bill as simply another attempt to single-out the Jewish state and hold her to a double standard.

One of the most famous lines from cult-classic, The Princess Bride, says, life is pain. Anyone who tells you otherwise is selling something. Drug companies are a perfect example of this but their tactics focus more on emphasizing that toxic chemicals and synthetic remedies are the only way to relieve discomfort. After all, whats easier than popping a pill that instantly makes you feel better?
Yet a consequence of such a careless approach to health is an uninformed decision-making process when it comes to your overall well-being. Studies have proven that over-the-counter painkillers actually do more harm than good, with long-term consequencesincluding an increased risk of heart attack and decreased fertility.
The strange thing about all of this is that painkillers are actually imitations of natural substances.
The good news, though, is that we have compiled a list of natural ways to relieve pain that do not carry any harmful side effects. (h/t to BioPrepper.com)
The flood situation worsened in Saurashtra and South Gujarat regions on Wednesday as rain continued to pound the districts of Junagadh, Jamnagar, Gir Somnath and Dangs. State Revenue Minister Kaushik Patel said the death toll during the ongoing monsoon season has reached 32 in the State. Junagadh, Gir Somnath and Dangs districts were worst hit as a large number of villages in these districts were submerged as rivers started overflowing. Compensation "Compensation for deaths is being provided and already 56 lakh assistance for 14 deaths has been released. Incessant rains over the past week has caused damage to crops and property. The assessment of damage will be conducted once the water recedes from the flooded regions," Patel stated. In view of the flood situation, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has cancelled his visit, which was scheduled for July 20.

Dental fluorosis may be the most obvious manifestation of fluoride damage as it discolors and pits peoples teeth, but much of the other harm it causes is not as easy to see and is often blamed on something else. Heres a look at a few of the ways in which fluoride destroys your health.
Many people feel fluoridated water is a big reason for the general dumbing down of society weve seen in recent years. It makes sense when you consider that fluoride is a neurotoxin and 50 human studies have linked exposure to it with lower intelligence.
It affects people of all ages, with fetal brain development also suffering from fluoride exposure. One study from Harvard Medical School linked elevated levels of fluoride to lowered IQs in children. Other studies have found that it can cause memory impairments and even brain damage.
Because so much fluoride accumulates in the aorta, your heart can be affected by it significantly. Fluoride leads to oxidative stress and an inflammatory response, spurring atherosclerosis and heart damage.
In addition, fluoride in ground water has been linked to high blood pressure and a higher risk of heart attack and stroke.
One of the less obvious effects of fluoride exposure is male infertility. Lots of people fail to connect their troubles conceiving to the chemical, even though more than 60 studies have shown that it can impact male reproduction by reducing the quantity and motility of sperm as well as testosterone levels.
If you need further proof, consider the fact that American communities where the drinking water...

Leafy, green spinach has become the darling of dietitians and nutritionists and for good reason. Packed with vitamin C, vitamin K, folic acid, iron, calcium and fiber, spinach is a true superfood that can support eye health, promote healthy weight and even help prevent cancer. But, theres something more you should know.
Recent tests conducted by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) have yielded disturbing results close to three quarters of conventionally-grown spinach samples tested were found to contain residue from a toxic insecticide.
The ominous fact is: rates of contamination of non-organic spinach have spiked dramatically since the USDAs last series of tests, performed in 2008 and 2009. In fact, the latest tests (performed in 2015 and 2016) showed that conventionally-grown spinach contains far more pesticide by weight than any other crop tested a strong argument for buying spinach that is organically grown.
The USDA assessed 642 conventionally-grown spinach samples, and found a shocking 7.1 pesticides, on average, on every sample. (In one particularly toxin-laden sample, the total was 18 different pesticides or their breakdown products.)
Four pesticides in particular one insecticide and three fungicides accounted for most of the residue found on spinach.
Permethrin, a neurotoxic insecticide, was found on 76 percent of the samples.
Alarmingly, the trio of fungicides most commonly found on spinach (mandipropam, fluopicolide and ametoctradin) did not appear at all in earlier tests.
In addition, 16 of the samples had concentrations that violated the EPAs maximum pesticide residue limits, while 83 samples had residues of pesticides that are prohibited for use on spinach.
The results earned spinach the second place position right behind strawberries on the Environmental Working Groups Dirty Dozen roster, which is compiled as part of the EWGs 2018 Shoppers Guide to Pesticides in Produce.
Previously ranked at Number Eight, spinach contained more than twice the amount of pesticides found on the rest of the Dirty Dozen.

The 9/11 Commission refused to take evidence from Pilots for 9/11 Truth, of which I am a member, with over 19,000 hours flight time, much of that flying covert missions for the CIA, and including 18 world speed records in a Lear Jet Model 25.
No Boeing 767 airlines hit either of the Twin Towers, as fraudulently alleged by the government, media, NIST and its contractors. All of the evidence to that effect, including video depictions, has been fabricated and can be forensically challenged.
You yourself, Mr. President, one of the most experienced property developers in New York City, have correctly observed that the buildings could only have been brought down by explosive as planes would never be able to penetrate the steel beams, had it exactly right. I leave it to you to create a new independent commission to examine all possibilities including thermite, pre-planted explosives (TNT), directed energy weapons from above, and nuclear explosions from below.
My focus is on the physical impossibility of the specific alleged aircraft crashing into either of the twin towers.
In the case of UAL 175 going into the south tower, a real Boeing 767 would have begun telescoping when the nose hit the 14-inch steel columns which are 39 inches on center. The vertical and horizontal tail would have instantaneously separated from the aircraft, hit the steel box columns and fallen to the ground.
The engines made of titanium and virtually indestructible when impacting the steel columns would have maintained their general shape and either fallen to the ground or been recovered in the debris of the collapsed building.
No Boeing 767 could attain a speed of 540 mph at 1000 feet above sea level because parasite drag doubles with velocity and parasite power cubes with velocity. These are scientific facts.
The fan portion of the engine is not designed to accept the volume of dense air at that altitude and speed.
No significant part of the Boeing 767 or engine could have penetrated the 14-inch steel columns and 37 feet beyond the massive core of the tower without part of it falling to the ground.
The piece of alleged external fuselage containing 3 or 4 window cutouts is inconsistent with an airplane that hit 14-inch steel box columns, placed at over 500 mph: It would h...

Humidity is the amount of water droplets suspended in the air and is an important variable for your health. It is generally recommended to keep your relative indoor humidity between 40 percent and 60 percent. Relative humidity describes how much water vapor is in the air, compared to how much there potentially could be.1 When the temperature of the air is warmer, greater amounts of water vapor may be present than when the air is cold.
While most people find a relative humidity in this range most comfortable, mite populations are minimized when the relative humidity is below 50 percent, and most species of fungi cannot grow unless the relative humidity exceeds 60 percent.2
Additionally, keeping indoor humidity above 60 percent in the winter months may result in condensation on the windows and ice formation inside your home. On the other hand, when your indoor humidity is too low, it can impact your skin, eyes and respiratory system; In other words, both high humidity and low humidity may have detrimental effects on your health and wellness.
Maintaining humidity in your home within a desirable range may help to reduce respiratory symptoms during the summer when the weather is hot, and in winter months when the air is often dry. When the relative humidity in your home is below 40 percent, you may experience dry skin, itchy eyes and irritated throat and nasal passages.3 It can also raise your risk of contracting a cold.
If your homes humidity is higher than 60 percent, it increases the risk of mold and fungal growth and may make your home feel stuffy. You might notice condensation on the walls, floors and windows, increasing the risk of triggering growth of bacteria and dust mites. These allergens may increase your respiratory problems and provoke flare-ups of allergies and asthma.4
Dry air in your home may cause moisture in your skin and respiratory tract to evaporate more quickly. Adding moisture may help with symptoms such as dry skin, irritated eyes, frequent coughs, bloody noses and sinus headache...

Dear God; They Caught Them ALL! Putin Gives Trump 160 Terabytes of Communications Intercepts; ALL people behind fake Russia Collusion False Flag Chemical Attacks in Syria, Sabotage of BREXIT, Nefarious Clinton activities & More
At the meeting in Helsinki, Finland, between Presidents Putin of Russia and Trump of the USA, the Russians gave to Trump at least 160 TERABYTES of Russian Intelligence Intercepts which expose horrifying activities of many, many, people to deliberately foment social, cultural, and political chaos, violent riots, demonstrations, media smears, phony scandals, and fake news.
Some of those intercepts reveal who has been financing weapons, supplies, travel, hotel, vehicle rentals and secure communications gear for Terrorist groups, inside Syria, Iraq, and terror attacks in Europe and the US.
Among the intercepted communications are mostly international phone calls, faxes, emails by members of the US Congress, US Senate, federal Judges, state-level elected officials from California, Oregon, Washington, New York (City & State), New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maryland and Virginia. Once those communications left the United States, they became fair game for any country to spy on.

During that meeting, Putin laid out the inner workings of the vast global network of elites and the activities they have engaged in to bring wars, refugees, all manner of social and political chaos to countries around the world, much of it in the USA.

Many people are claiming that monoatomic gold, also known as monatomic gold or white powder gold, holds the key to health, energy, and longevity, but is monoatomic gold even real?
According to some archaeologists and scientists, this exotic white powder gold is real and was used by certain ruling class of the Egyptians, Sumerians, Babylonians, and secret societies for esoteric rituals, and to increase vitality and longevity. Many researchers of occultism believe that monoatomic gold is still being used for esoteric rituals by secret societies of today.
Monoatomic elements, such as monoatomic gold, are made of single atoms not bound to one another. One strange and exotic property of monatomic gold is that when heated to certain temperatures, it becomes very light, even to the point where it produces antigravity properties. For this reason, understanding how monatomic gold works may hold some of the keys to unlocking the secrets of antigravity and superluminal technology.
As mentioned at BlueEmeraldAlchemy.com.
The center of the periodic chart of elements consists of what are known as the transition elements, meaning that they can transit from metallic to monatomic or diatomic via chemical treatment or through other means (what some would refer to as shadow chemistry or arcane chemistry or even alchemy). Take gold for example. When you have two or more gold atoms in a microcluster, it will have metallic properties, but if you have only one atom, it will then have ceramic properties, which means that it becomes chemically inert but at the same time will have superconductive capabilities even at room temperature. The weight of these amazing materials can also change by heating, becoming lighter, even to the point of levitation. Because it is chemically inert, it can be ingested for health, wellbeing and super-energizing at the cellular level.
Conventional science is aware of six phases of matter, which are gas, liquid, solid, plasma, Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC), and liquid crystal. What conventional science isnt aware of yet or doesnt want to accept are monatomic elements. These monatomic elements are only a few examples of many other phases of matter that are yet to be discovered.
Monatomic elements are sometimes refer to as ORME (orbitally rearranged monatomic elements). According to Jim Marrs, ORME actually means the Tree of Life in Hebrew. This could be why some people like to associate monatomic gold or white powder gold with immortality.
In the late 1980s, some nuclear physicists discovered that the atoms of certain elements were arranged in microclusters. These microclusters are very tiny groups of atoms, ranging from two to several hundred...
It is now known that Rudy Gulliani and the leadership of NYC as well as the owners of WTC knew years before 9/11 that the buildings must be brought down before 2007 because the interior steel and exterior aluminum were both compromised and the buildings would be at risk of collapsing the cost to dismantle them was estimated to be $2B, inclusive of asbestos remediation. Hence the choice was clear: spend $2B to take care of the problem; or fake a terrorist incident and in collaboration with a complicit insurance company, take $7B in a false claim. The FBI or Mossad officers pretending to be FBI appears to have played a major role in the intimidation of all the architects, engineers, and photographers who spent years investigating the vulnerability of the buildings to uncontrolled collapse. None of this was investigated by the 9/11 Commission.

7-17-18 Deep State Panic!!! Keep Your Eye on the BallQ (and why
Putin used the term, Loose Change, twice)
Posted on 2018/07/18
[* The Deep State is Going Down, Thanks to Trump-Putin in Helsinki]
This video showed up in one of my feeds yesterday, and when I saw it, I was rather blown away. There were a couple things that really stood out from this short video analysis.
The handing over the ball from Putin to Trump represents a transfer of data. Putin said (at 38:00), Speaking of the football, actually. Mr. President Ill give this ball to you. And now the ball is in your court. In other words, it implies the data has been given to DJT, and the ball is now in his court to present it to the world.
Putin, at about 43:30 in the Helsinki conference video, twice uses the words Loose Change. Anyone who has investigated the 911 incidents, has heard of the video, Loose Change (YouTube; Vimeo), which looks into the many aspects of 911, and the discrepancies given in the government 911 Official Report.
This appears to be signal that Trump and Putin are ready to release to the world, the full truth about 911.
The McAllister video is below. Ive also linked to the Loose Change videos.

TDSiGDTtTPiH* pt 1 Lights Go Out As Trump
Expresses Faith in Intel and #Q #QAnon related
Posted on 2018/07/18
[* The Deep State is Going Down, Thanks to Trump-Putin in Helsinki] Pardon the long acronym, but I wanted a short word for the series of three articles related to the Helsinki conference.
The title is from this USA Today article. On 7-17-18, as Trump was expressing faith in the intel community, the lights went out for a few seconds (see the video below). To me it was rather a key moment when the lights went out, right after Trump praising the intel community. I had read somewhere that it was General Flynn who turned out the lights, but not I cannot find a link, so Im not completely sure about that.
In any event, it may be saying, We are turning the lights our on the dark intel community. Later I found these images which may connect to prior Q posts: https://imgur.com/xzbuUcx; https://imgur.com/a/RFL4Qtd; Ive linked the first one in the image at upper left.
There appears to be an attempt to connect this post from 6-17-18, to the dark to light event of 7-17-18. Honestly, Im not sure exactly whats going on here, but Im putting it out there. Perhaps some others can figure the whole thing out.
The San Francisco company is shielding election agencies in red and blue states and localities from attacks, like denial of service, meant to sow mayhem.
Whatever President Trump says or un-says, its clear that election authorities in the U.S. and around the world have faced and will continue to face an onslaught of hacking attacks. While its unclear if hackers have been able to actually manipulate vote tallies, anyone from a Russian agent to a 400-pound hacker sitting on his bed can easily seed mayhem and doubt by knocking voter registration sites offline or posting forged announcements of election results.
There are many ways negative forces can influence targeted individuals. Two common methods are through reality manipulation and matrix agents. This article discusses the important roles freewill and awareness play in such cases, which may explain why negative forces often maneuver the way they do. Matrix Agents: Profiles and Analysis and True Reality Creation provide background material for this article.
Reality manipulations consist of acausal changes in ones reality, performed by hostile hyperdimensional beings (4D STS) who reside outside ones realm. The acausal changes occur when the target is moved about the temporal plane spanned by the axes of linear and phase time. Linear time measures the progress of our perceived sense of time while we reside in third density, and phase time measures movement from one timeline or dimension to another.
Reality manipulation is identically a process of either moving an individual to a new spot on the temporal plane, or of merging his timeline or dimension with another that fits the engineered requirements of a 4D STS agenda. The difference between moving to a new timeline or having ones timeline merged with another is merely a matter of perspective. Being shifted about the temporal plane means an individuals conscious locus is moved to a new timeline, complete with new memories of the past and possibilities for the future. We are accustomed to thinking causally and within the framework of linear time, that outside forces can influence us only in the sense of affecting our possible futures, but some are equally capable of affecting our possible pasts.
The individual cannot be moved to just any new location on the temporal plane if he has freewill. His freewill anchors him to all points upon the temporal plane of which he has awareness. These elements remain tied to him, and he is likewise tied to them. Any attempts by 4D STS to manipulate such elements automatically places them in direct engagement with his freewill, for such elements are anchored to his freewill via his awareness.
To avoid this engagement, reality manipulations tend to occur upon elements that are not tied to his freewill, those of which he is unconscious. This is why attacks come from the shadows, from where they are least expected.
Sometimes engagement is unavoidable, then a secondary tactic of disinformation is used. An individual with false knowledge is at greater peril than one who has no knowledge because his freewill is then tied to pseudo elements, ones which are not firmly rooted in immovable objective reality. These elements provide artificial handles upon his reality, graspable...

Queen Elizabeth II wore a brooch given to her by former President Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama on the day President Trump landed in the United Kingdom, according to multiple reports. The Obamas gave the vintage brooch to the Queen during a 2011 visit. The 14-karat yellow gold piece of jewelry is also known as the American State Visit brooch. The nod to the former presidents has been seen by some as a subtle jab at Trump, who was greeted on his U.K. visit by hundreds of thousands of protesters.

As they returned to Bray Head in Co Wicklow to douse flaring embers and reassure worried residents, Greystones firefighters were on their 88th callout since the heatwave and drought conditions took hold more than a month ago. "When you think that everything you own is going to go up in flames, it's pretty scary," said one resident, looking on as, for the umpteenth time since the blaze took hold last Friday, the part-time firefighters dropped what they were doing and rushed out to help. The damage of the past four days could have been more severe had it not been for their hard work, and the foresight of Mark Kopik. The landowner, anticipating the inevitable, cut fire breaks through the gorse in the hope that if a fire broke out, he could slow its pace. The goal was achieved. Nonetheless the strength of the fire, and particularly the strength of the south and southwest winds on Saturday, saw the blaze spread and devour virtually all the growth on the southern slope of Bray Head.

When describing the cultural impact of social media, to call it "phenomenal" would be an understatement. But is the overuse of social networking sites like Facebook on par with the use of physically addictive and/or mind-altering substances? In a trend that shows no signs of slowing, the number of people who use social media has experienced a meteoric rise from just under a billion worldwide users in 2010, to more than 3 billion estimated users by 2021. With nearly 2.2 billion active users each month,Facebook leads the pack as the social networking site (SNS) where we're spending the bulk of our time online. Not only are more people using social networking sites, we're also spending increasing amounts of time each day liking, commenting, and sharing our lives online. Don't assume that this is only a fad amongst young people: since 2012, adults are spending 50% more time on Facebook each day. An adult in the U.S. uses Facebook for an average of 135 minutes per day, equating to nearly 16 hours-that's two, full workdays-per week. What accounts for the magnetism people young and old, feel for social media?

Benjamin Netanyahu said that it was Israel that convinced Donald Trump to ditch the landmark Iranian nuclear deal in a recording released by local media. Bibi insists that he "had to stand up against the whole world." The recording was released by Kan public broadcaster on Twitter and the story was quickly picked up by the Times of Israel. The PM is seen speaking in Hebrew to activists and senior members from his ruling Likud party in a closed meeting reportedly dated earlier in July. Netanyahu boasts that "we" - apparently referring to the state of Israel - "convinced the US president" to exit the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, also known as the Iranian nuclear deal. "I had to stand up against the whole world and come out against this agreement," Netanyahu says in the video, as cited by the Times of Israel. "And we didn't give up."
You have probably heard of CRISPR, the gene-editing technique set to cure diseases and modify our DNA. The real revolution, however, may be in its ability to transform our food. "The biggest impact is going to be in agriculture," Jennifer Doudna, who helped develop the method, told New Scientist earlier this year. This is because older, cruder techniques make it expensive to develop genetically modified (GM) foods, so they are mostly the domain of big multinationals. In contrast, CRISPR has made genetic tinkering cheap and easy. "It takes a firm on average 13 years and costs $130 million to launch a GM crop" "Rather than just four or five large multinationals dominating the market, you're going to have an explosion of companies all over the world innovating and coming up with improved crop varieties," says Tony Moran of US biotech company Cibus.
The last few days have been truly amazing. I didn't even write an article yesterday; I've just been staring transfixed by my social media feeds watching liberal Americans completely lose their minds. I can't look away. It's like watching a slow motion train wreck, and everyone on the train is being really homophobic. I've been writing about Russiagate since it started, and I can honestly say this is the worst it's ever been, by far. The most hysterical, the most shrill, the most emotional, the most cartoonishly over-the-top and hyperbolic. The fact that Trump met with Putin in private and then publicly expressed doubt about the establishment Russia narrative has sent some political factions of America into an emotional state that is indistinguishable from what you'd expect if Russia had bombed New York City. This despite the fact that the establishment Russia narrative consists of no actual, visible events whatsoever. It is made of pure narrative.
It was AncestryDNA's customer-service rep who had to break the news to Catherine St Clair. For her part, St Clair thought she was inquiring about a technical glitch. Her brother - the brother who along with three other siblings had gifted her the DNA test for her birthday - wasn't showing up right in her family tree. It was not a glitch, the woman on the line had to explain gently, if this news can ever land gently: The man St Clair thought of as her brother only shared enough DNA with her to be a half-sibling. In fact, she didn't match any family members on her father's side. Her biological father must be someone else. "I looked into a mirror and started crying," says St Clair, now 56. "I've taken for granted my whole life that what I was looking at in the mirror was part my mother and part my dad. And now that half of that person I was looking at in the mirror, I didn't know who that was."
Spain's socialist government has vowed to introduce a new 'only yes means yes' sexual consent law to remove any ambiguities in rape cases following outrage over the verdict in the recent 'La Manada' gang rape case. Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez told parliament that under the new measure sex without explicit consent would constitute rape. "To be clear, ladies and gentlemen, if they say no it means no, and if they don't say yes, it means no," Sanchez said. The proposed legislation follows the notorious sex attack on a young woman during a bull-running festival in Pamplona by a group of five men dubbed 'La Manada,' meaning wolf pack, after the name given to their group chat on WhatsApp.

A foreign invader, a species of alien seaweed, has managed to cross the oceans to reach the frozen Antarctic shores. So scientists may have to give up a cherished belief: that Antarctica is inviolate.
For a century, researchers have assumed that the mix of ocean currents, distance and temperature have kept the Great White Continent shielded from invasion by Pacific or Atlantic flotsam.
But the discovery of strands of kelp on an Antarctic beach seaweed that may have drifted for considerable periods and a distance of 20,000 kms before becoming stranded far from home brings an end to that belief. And the discovery suggests that global warming could bring serious changes to Antarctic ecosystems.
This finding shows us that living plants and animals can reach Antarctica across the ocean, with temperate and sub-Antarctic marine species probably bombarding Antarctic coastlines all the time, said Ceridwen Fraser, of the Australian National University.
We always thought Antarctic plants and animals were distinct because they were isolated, but this research now suggests these differences are almost entirely due to environmental extremes, not isolation.
Dr Fraser and her colleagues report in the journal Nature Climate Change that strands of southern bull kelp, Durvillaea antarctica, found by a Chilean scientist, must have floated 20,000 km from the Kerguelen Islands and South Georgia. The kelp was encrusted with barnacles, evidence of a long time adrift.
In fact, researchers believe, it may be evidence of the longest episode of biological rafting ever confirmed. The word raft is significant: such floating platforms could provide shelter and transport for other biological invaders.
Until now, the assumption has been that the pattern of surface currents and westerly winds tends to drive drifting material northwards from Antarctica. The discovery suggests that if kelp can get there, so can floating driftwood, or plastic debris, or any other unwelcome visitor.
The researchers think large waves driven by Southern Ocean storms may have steered the kelp rafts over what had been considered a natural ocean barrier. Global warming has begun to change conditions in Antarctica, and the continent considered...

Leaders use largest bilateral free trade deal to send clear message to US president The EU and Japan say approval of the world's largest bilateral free trade deal shines a "light in the darkness" of global political uncertainty. Japan's prime minister, Shinzo Abe, and the EU leaders Donald Tusk and Jean-Claude Juncker sought to establish themselves as the flag-bearers of the free world, in response to Donald Trump's show of apparent solidarity with Vladimir Putin in Helsinki on Monday. The leaders promoted the benefits of a free trade deal that is set to eliminate nearly all tariffs on products traded between Japan and the EU. Tusk, the president of the European council and an outspoken critic of the Trump administration in recent months, was particularly keen to celebrate the shared values of the signatories, not only in terms of trade but also foreign policy.

Archbishop Philip Wilson is the highest ranking Catholic official to be convicted of covering up sexual abuse, part of a global scandal which has dogged the Vatican for decades. The 67-year-old archbishop of Adelaide was found guilty of having concealed the abuse of altar boys by a pedophile priest colleague, James Fletcher, in the 1970s, when he was an assistant parish priest in the state of New South Wales.

How was Hungary connected to post-WWII decolonization? What does this episode of Eastern European history tell us about shared postcolonialities, transnational interconnectivity, and semiperipheral positioning strategies? This study aims to address these questions in the context of socialist Hungarys evolving relations with independent Ghana under the Kwame Nkrumah regime (19571966), by focusing on the role of Hungarian experts in a transnational context. My aim is to show how this encounter led to the professionalization and internationalization of Hungarian postcolonial knowledge production, and how parallels in colonial history were drawn between Hungary and Africa. I interpret various cases by introducing the notion of semiperipheral (post)coloniality, which connects insights from postcolonialism and world-systems analysis to show the intertwined discursive and structural processes of semiperipheral relations affecting colonial discourse in the activities of experts.Ghanaian president Kwame Nkrumah in Budapest, 28 July 1961.

Land expropriation without compensation is a key programme in achieving the vision of a free South Africa, according to President Cyril Ramaphosa.
The Marxist cultural critic Walter Benjamin once argued that every rise of fascism bears witness to a failed revolution. Benjamin was not only addressing elements of a failed political revolution, but also the failure of language, values, courage, vision and a critical consciousness. In the midst of a moment when an older social order is crumbling and a new one is struggling to define itself, there is always a moment of confusion and danger. We have arrived at such a moment in which two worlds are colliding.
First, there is the harsh and crumbling world of neoliberal globalization and its mobilizing passions that fuel a US-style fascism. Second, there is a counter movement with its search for a new politics that can rethink, reclaim and invent a new understanding of democratic socialism, untainted by capitalism. In the midst of this struggle, a new political movement and social order will be born, though one without guarantees. Something sinister and horrifying is happening to liberal democracies all over the globe. The global architecture of democracy is giving way to authoritarian tyrannies. As alarming as the signs may be, we cannot look away and allow the terrors of the unforeseen to be given free rein. We cannot allow the power of dreams to turn into nightmares.
It is hard to imagine a more urgent moment for developing a language of critique and possibility that would serve to awaken our critical and imaginative senses and help free us from the tyrannical nightmare that has descended upon the United States under the rule of Donald Trump. In an age of social isolation, information overflow, a culture of immediacy, consumer glut and spectacularized violence, reading critical books and other representational texts coupled with thinking analytically remain necessary if we are to take seriously the notion that a democracy cannot exist or be defended without informed and engaged citizens. This is especially true at a time when denial has become a national pastime matched only by the increasing normalization of one of the most alarming administrations ever to take hold of the US presidency.
Against a numbing indifference, despair or withdrawal into the private orbits of the isolated self, there is a need to create those formative cultures that are humanizing, foster the capacity to hear others, sustain complex thoughts and engage social problems. We have no other choice if we are to resist the increasing destabilization of democratic institutions, the assault on reason, the collapse of the distinction between fact and fiction, and the taste for brutality that now spreads across the US like a plague. Reading critically means not only learning how to read the world, but also learning how to think analytically while refusing to succumb to the unthinkable. Reading is not only valuable as a form of translation, but also, as George Steiner observes, follows language as the main instrument of [peoples] refusal to accept the world...

Money talks when trying to influence climate change legislation
New research examines the amounts different sectors spent on lobbying on climate-related issues in the US between 2000 and 2016
July 18, 2018
Climate lobbying is big business. A new analysis shows that between 2000 and 2016, lobbyists spent more than two billion dollars on influencing relevant legislation in the US Congress. Unsurprisingly, sectors that could be negatively affected by bills limiting carbon emissions, such as the electrical utilities sector, fossil fuel companies and transportation corporations had the deepest pockets. Their lobbying efforts dwarfed those of environmental organizations, the renewable energy industry and volunteer groups. These results are published in Springers journal Climatic Change in a study led by Robert J. Brulle of Drexel University in the US.

John Woodcock challenged to hold by-election after quitting Labour
JOHN WOODCOCK has been challenged by Labour to call a by-election after abandoning the party with a scornful attack on its leader Jeremy Corbyn.
Mr Woodcock quit Labour this morning and said he is prepared to vote with the Conservatives as an independent MP for Barrow and Furness if required.
The party pariah has been sitting as an independent since having the Labour whip withdrawn in April pending investigation of an allegation of sexual harassment towards to a former staff member between 2014 and 2016.
Mr Woodcocks resignation means the Labour investigation cannot be concluded.
Labours Chris Williamson told the Morning Star that Mr Woodcocks departure was long overdue.
He said: He had clearly lost touch with his local members and was massively out of step.
Not just with Labour supporters, but with the overwhelming majority of the British public, who have comprehensively turned their back on the discredited New Labour ideology to which Mr Woodcock continues to cling.
He has clashed with Mr Corbyn over his stance on nuclear weapons,...

Housing market is falling apart very quickly. Starts and permits tumbled YoY and we are now in stage 2 of the housing bubble. Once we hit stage 3 it is game over. The Fed is raising the interest rates, they know this will bring down the economy we are already seeing signs of the yield curve inverting, this is why the Fed has been removing data and changing data. The Fed's mission is to bring the economy down blame it on another person or entity, but they need to save the bonds, so bringing down the stock market will accomplish this.

The Japanese and Chinese giants are teaming up to bring a ride-hailing service to Japan, reports Bloomberg. The new service will be called Didi Mobility Japan and will start trials this year in Osaka. Those trials will be followed by trials Tokyo, Kyoto, Fukuoka, and Okinawa. Though ride-hailing services are booming in other parts of the world, they have been slow to catch on in Japan. Thats because it is illegal in Japan for private-car owners to use their own vehicle to pick up and deliver passengers. As a result, other ride-sharers like Uber are essentially taxi and car-dispatch services.

Makes More Money Happier?
Wealth on the whole is an illusion
Happiness is independent of Money
Over half the people of the world work just to survive, while the other portion works to get ahead. They aim to get richer. Why so much effort if there is no connection none at all to happiness? And why are so many people investing their money, if theres no assurance that it will contribute in making them wealthier? As there is no link between more money bringing more happiness, could it possibly be the other way around: more money equals less happiness? As actually more money can result in more of the wrong choices!
Growing up during childhood, it was experienced that happiness is independent of wealth. Happiness comes from the home and the family. As a child, we learn that this is the base to face whatever challenges and hardships may come our way, confident as were that our happiness was safe at home.
If you want to be rich, youd better learn to like poverty first, as he who has material success may not be able to bear the risk of failure. When young, money really didnt matter that much as the majority is largely indifferent to it. So, in hindsight this would be the perfect period to take chances. By the same token, this is the best disposition in which to start your own business. It is the best route to success. No matter what it is you undertake, it is very hard to lay your hands on serious money. When you come of age, someone else seems to already own all the money in the world and they will not turn it over to you readily.
Starting out, you dont know yet what you have to do, to make a success out of your business. More than likely, it will fail, and thats precisely what you want to avoid at all costs. So, it is of the utmost importance to take advantage of all opportunities, as it is uncertain in the beginning as to what exactly will be successful. Eliminate failures...
DENVER The Trump administration on Wednesday eased rules for handling toxic coal ash from more than 400 U.S. coal-fired power plants after utilities pushed back against regulations adopted under former President Barack Obama.
Environmental Protection Agency acting Administrator Andrew Wheeler said the changes would save utilities roughly $30 million annually.
The move represents the latest action by Trumps EPA to boost the struggling coal industry by rolling back environmental and public health protections enacted under his predecessor.
It pushes back the deadline to close problematic ash dumps and gives state regulators flexibility in how they deal with the massive waste piles that result from burning coal for electricity.
Wheeler, a former coal industry lobbyist, signed the order a week after taking the helm of the agency following the resignation of former administrator Scott Pruitt amid ethics investigations.
Environmentalists argue the administration is endangering the health of people living near power plants and ash storage sites, while industry representatives welcomed the announcement.
U.S. coal plants produce about 100 million tons annually of ash and other waste, much of which ends up in unlined disposal ponds prone to leak. Some have been in use for decades.
Data released by utilities in March under an EPA mandate showed widespread evidence of groundwater contamination at coal plants. Heightened levels of pollutants including arsenic and radium in some cases were documented at plants in numerous states, from Virginia to Alaska.
EPA documents show most savings for utilities from the new rules will come from extending by 18 months the deadline to close ash dumps that dont meet water protection standards. The new deadline is Oct. 31, 2020.
The utility industry said the changes give regulatory certainty for ash dump operators. Thats in part because it aligns the closure requirements with upcoming guidelines limiting the levels of toxic metals in wastewater discharged from power plants.
The changes also give state regulators the power to suspend monitoring requirements for dumps that dont meet water quality standards.
Its not like EPA has granted us free pass here. It just gives us additional time to operate those facilities and better synch them up with the upcoming wastewater guidelines, said James Roewer, executive director of the Utility Solid Waste Advisory Group, an industry organization that had pushed for the changes.
The original, Obama-era rule, adopted in 2015, came in response to a massive 2008 coal ash spill in Kingston, Tennessee. A containment dike burst at a Tennessee Valley Authority power plant and released 5.4 million cubic yards of ash.
The accident dumped waste into two nearby rivers, destroyed homes and brought national attention to the issue.
New York billionaire George Soros is not a fan of former President Obama telling the New York Times that Obama is his greatest disappointment, lamenting that he was frozen out by the administration despite his financial support.
Soros was an early backer of Barack Obamas 2008 presidential campaign. In Paris, Soros told me that Obama was actually my greatest disappointment. Prompted by an aide, he immediately qualified himself, saying that he hadnt been disappointed by Obamas presidency but felt let down on a professional level. While he had no desire for a formal role in the administration, he had hoped that Obama would seek his counsel, especially on financial and economic matters. Instead, he was frozen out. NYT
[Obama] made one phone call thanking me for my support, which was meant to last for five minutes, and I engaged him, and he had to spend another three minutes with me, so I dragged it out to eight minutes, Soros said.
The liberal billionaire told the NYT that he was mostly disappointed because he had hoped to be consulted on economic and financial issues, and that Obama was known to take his supporters for granted and to woo his opponents.
After that, the 87-year-old financier was left out in the cold where he would subsequently focus his efforts on facilitating the wholesale transport of mostly North African migrants into Europe via human trafficking networks.
Soros also praised Senator John McCain and said the main priority of his political activism was to promote bipartisanship, explaining that Republicans on the far right led him to become one of the top funders for the Democratic Party.
And as Democrats set their eyes on November and the midterm election push to regain control of the House of Representatives, the long-term goal of ensuring a Democrat resides in the Oval Office in 2020 remains the partys glaring concern. Meanwhile the biggest question remains unanswered, as nobody quite knows what Soros is up to regarding the 2020 election, while he told The Times I dont particularly want to be a Democrat.
Soros, who also poured millions of dollars into Hillary Clintons 2016 presidential run, wouldnt say if he would back Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., in the upcoming presidential election, but said when it comes to politics, I dont particularly want to be a Democrat. ...
An evacuation began overnight of thousands of people from two loyalist Syrian villages that are besieged by rebels in the northwest, a war monitor said, with the government expected to release hundreds of detainees in return, Reuters reports.
The Shiite villages of al-Foua and Kefraya are expected to be emptied of all their residents and fighters. More than 100 buses arrived to transport residents and fighters from the villages to nearby government-held territory in Aleppo province.
The evacuation began with ambulances ferrying out the sick, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights war monitor reported.
Syrian state-run al-Ikhbariya TV said 10 ambulances carrying a number of people in critical condition had arrived at a government checkpoint in al-Eis. Al-Manar TV, run by the pro-Damascus Lebanese Shiite group Hezbollah, said this completed the first phase of the agreement, and that the upcoming departure of 121 buses in a convoy would complete a second phase.
The villages have been under siege for years by Sunni Islamist rebels in Idlib province, the last major insurgent-held part of Syria. President Bashar al-Assad, who is advancing against rebels in the southwest, has vowed to recover the entire country.
Some 7,000 people are due to leave both villages.
Population transfers have been a common feature of the seven-year Syrian war, mostly at the expense of Assads opponents. The conflict has killed an estimated half a million people and driven some 11 million from their homes.
Rebels and civilians have been bussed out of their hometowns to insurgent territory in the north, as government forces advanced with critical help from Russia and Iran.
The opposition has decried it as a systematic policy of forcible displacement against those opposed to Assad, who comes from the Alawite sect, an offshoot of Shiite Islam.
The conflict took on a sectarian dimension as it swelled out of protests against Assads rule in 2011. Shiite Islamist militias backed by Iran have deployed from across the region to help Damascus against rebels, many of whom identified themselves as Sunni Islamists.
Opposition sources said officials from Hayat Tahrir al-Sham, a coalition spearheaded by Syrias former al-Qaeda offshoot, and Irans Revolutionary Guards had negotiated the latest swap.
A commander in the regional alliance that backs Assad and an Islamist rebel source familiar with the secret talks said separately that Turkey was also involved in the process, which builds on a deal from last year that had not been fully implemented.
In the wake of W.E.B. DuBoiss 150th birthday, his works offer a lens through which to assess US capitalisms relationship to racism today. He famously wrote: Capitalism cannot reform itself; it is doomed to self-destruction, while adding that in the US, race would be a key issue in that process. Thus he would have had much to say when, around last Memorial Day, Trump suggested that NFL players peacefully protesting police killings of black people did not belong in the country.
An extreme right-wing capitalist agenda prevails. It pushes private capitalists goalsprivatization and deregulation; tax cuts for corporations and the rich;and subsidies for themto lengths not seen before. A kind of unhinged capitalist euphoria makes a virtue of learning nothing about restraint from the catastrophic booms and busts associated with 1929 and 2008.
Capitalisms headlong rush is quite logically symbolized and figureheaded by Trump. Yet what makes it possible is above all the absence of any serious, organized opposition such as that successfully mounted during the Great Depression by the New Deal coalition of industrial unions, two socialist parties, and one communist party. After 1945, Republicans attacked and Democrats abetted the demise of the New Deal Coalition and subsequent efforts to rebuild it. That allowed a capitalist resurgence and thereby the resumption yet again of another drive to crisis. When that happened in 2008-2009, the absence of a serious left opposition precluded anything like another New Deal. After 2008 we had only bailouts (much bigger than FDRs in the 1930s). Oblivious to capitalisms history, todays centrist Democratic Party leadership waits for Trumps demise so it can resume the Clintons legacy: another drive to crisis.
While no broad-based national opposition yet exists in the US, there are signs of it struggling to be born. Public school teacherssome with and some without union supportsbecame active finally against years of public school funding cutbacks accelerated under the grotesque DeVos administration. The striking teachers success in West Virginia showed what serious, organized opposition can do. Likewise the high-schoolers from Parkland, Florida, organized opposition to the gun lobby, mocking the fakeries and lip-service of so many others. Consider too the proliferating organizations of and for worker coops as a democratic alternative to undemocratically organized capitalist enterprises.
There are more examples, but what matters basically is this: social change requires serious, organized opposition to the status quo. The further the social change seeks to go, the better organized its proponents within that serious opposition need to be. Defeating a particular politician takes less organizing than defeating a political party and that, in turn, takes less than making a transition to a better, different economy.
DuBois understood that capitalisms drive to self-destruction wo...

Donald Trumps antics over the past week have sent the world into a tizzy. With his preferential treatment of Russian President Vladimir Putin over his own Justice Department and intelligence agencies fueling calls of treason, weve all but forgotten the incredible firestorm Trump ignited less than a week ago at the NATO summit in Brussels or the reports of his collusion with retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy to replace Kennedy on the Supreme Court with Judge Brett Kavanaugh. As has been typical of the Trump presidency, each weeks news is so jaw-dropping that we forget the horrors of the week before, while our president tramples like a bull in a china shop over expectations, diplomatic norms and the difference between truth and lies. What important stories and contexts were eclipsed by Trumps global tantrums over the past week?
Starting with his attendance at the annual NATO summit in Brussels, Trump called for an increase in military spending by NATO members to match the United States 4 percent of the national budget. But he didnt mention the war in Afghanistan, where NATOs only current military operations are ongoing. That long war, sparked by the U.S. after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, was meant to be on the agenda in Brusselsespecially because NATO is expanding its mission with an increased troop presencefrom 13,000 to 16,000and is even starting a new mission in Iraq at the request of the United States. Afghan President Ashraf Ghani was at the summit, but, as this Guardian report details, he was asked to leave after Trump singlehandedly transformed the agenda. Since then, as well as before the summit, there has been little discussion of the U.S. and NATOs goal in the never-ending war, why more NATO troops will make things better when previous troop increases didnt, and what the Western military operation has achieved so far.
Also largely overlooked in coverage of the summit was the story of the U.S.-EU split over the Iran nuclear deal. U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo arrived in Brussels just before the summit expecting to impress upon European allies the importance of abandoning t...

QUESTION: Do you think that quantum computing will really change the world and is it feasible in our lifetime?
REPLY: Quantum Computing is the first real change in computer science. Traditional computers encode information in bits which are essentially magnets that store a charge and that created the binary code of 1 and 0. Therefore, 8 magnets form a bit and thus the letter A would be 01000001. You can store the entire alphabet in these bits.
Quantum computers, on the other hand, work entirely different. They are based on qubits, which operate according to two key principles of quantum physics: superposition and entanglement. The superposition means that each qubit can represent both a 1 and a 0 at the same time. Entanglement means that qubits in a superposition can be correlated with each other, which means that whether the state of one is actually a 1 or a 0 can depends entirely upon the state of another. Using these two principles, qubits can act in a more complex yet sophisticated manner. This enables quantum computers to function in ways that allow them to solve difficult problems that are inflexible or difficult utilizing todays computers.
Whether it is actually possible to solve is one of the greatest mysteries of life and not fully recognizable just yet. There are experiments being conducted to see if they can solve problems that would be impossible with standard coding. Will they change the world? It is possible, but not yet. Socrates was designed with standard computer binary structures. However, in order to work out some of the most difficult complex structures, it required creating a derivative of this principle of superposition and entanglement but artificially creating this quantum structure.
UMN policy would punish incorrect use of gender pronouns | 16 July 2018 | The University of Minnesota is considering a new policy that would mandate the use of "preferred pronouns" under threat of expulsion or firing. According to the policy--currently titled "Equity and Access: Gender Identity, Gender Expression, Names and Pronouns"--members of the academic institution "are expected to use the names, gender identities, and pronouns specified to them by University members." The university explains that the document is needed to further support "transgender and gender nonconforming" individuals on campus...To accomplish these goals, the policy includes a lengthy list of punishments designed to discourage "discrimination" and "harassment" based on gender identity.
Rio Tinto has employed the first fully autonomous train, which many are calling the worlds largest robot. Rio Tintos project has eliminated humans and that saves on pensions and salaries. This is the way of the future because of exponentially rising human costs. The train completed its first delivery of iron ore between the companys Australian Mount Tom Price mine and the port of Cape Lambert on the Western coast.
Rio Tinto spent $940 million to develop this project. The train consists of three locomotives and carries around 28,000 tonnes of iron ore making a journey of 280km with no human driver. The trip was monitored remotely by operators at Rios Operations Centre in Perth more than 1,500km away. Effectively, this is not so dissimilar from the drone used in the military that is also being monitored from a far away location.
The high cost of socialism is driving the field of robotics. The higher the costs of pensions and their lack of feasibility when central banks play with interest rates pretending to be managing the economy has driven the technology into the hands of automation. Governments are in a state of denial and they will continue to raise taxes to try to cover their costs. They fail to look at this crisis straight in the eyes. There is no hope of maintaining socialism and more than there was communism.
Martin. Over the years I have read so much of your
adventurers (if you could call them that =) and some of the
great masters you
quote from time to time.
I know you have done a massive amount of research on your own. I was wondering about some of the unknown people in your early days. Like when you first started programming on wall street. People who shared things with you that gave incite or steered you in the right directions knowledge wise. People who keyed you in on trading, markets and so forth.
It would be interesting to hear if you could share.
Alright, Nice evening to you sir.
ANSWER: Life is a math equation. Life = Sum(x + y + z). Everything we do accumulates and the sum forges our character-defining who we are. Experience = knowledge. Nobody is ever born knowing everything. We learn ONLY from our mistakes so cherish them well for they are what make us who we are. When there is nothing left to learn about this world, then it is time to leave. Never be afraid to question for unless we have questions, we will never arrive at answers.
People often ask me why I am not bitter for the injustices I have fought against in New York. They have been absorbed and contribute to my understanding of life. In our natural habitat, we tend to judge others by ourselves. We need to be confronted by the opposite to understand its very nature. I have seen the corruption of the Judicial system from the inside out and am so glad I did not become a lawyer as my father wanted. You learn that there are truly evil people who know what they do is wrong, so they try to oppress and even kill those who would expose them. They deny all wrong-doing and pretend to be so upright, but someone who really is upright never pretends to be because they do not have to. The fact that they must act in this manner demonstrates that they themselves know they are evil or they would stand in the light of day. Just mind-blowing how people can act so corruptly and then sleep at night. There was one kid they were charging with conspiracy for murder because someone asked him where a person was he pointed to him and they killed him. He was not part of it nor did he know the killers. They got less time by implicating others. The govern...

Will the Jews finally be freed from Khazarian mafia slavery as Israel is liberated?
By Benjamin Fulford, White Dragon Society
The world is headed for a new age, not a New World Order. As a part of this, the Jewish peoplehigh-level slaves of satan-worshipping Khazarian gangstersare about to be freed from thousands of years of Babylonian slavery. That is why the rogue state of Israel is now under full martial law as the Khazarian-controlled government there faces an ultimatum to surrender and free their Jewish and Arab hostages, according to Russian FSB and Pentagon sources.
A clear sign that the Jewish people are finally waking up came last week when Jewish human rights groups petitioned their government to stop arming neo-Nazis. Many are waking up now to the fact that Nazism and Zionism are two sides of the same coin. These are really the people whom Revelation 2:9 in the Bible refers to as those who falsely claim to be Jews, but are in fact a synagogue of Satan.

Some zodiac pairs are much more powerful than the others, but which ones are the most powerful? While you might mesh with someone that doesnt mean they are your best match.
Below I am going to go over some of the most powerful zodiac pairs. These are pairs that do far better together than youd ever imagine. For each sign, there is a sign that goes above and beyond when partnered, which sign might that be for yours?
These two are really able to balance one another out as they are opposites. They tend to really bring forth a sexual attraction that most do not ever truly find. Their connection can be challenging sometimes, but when with the right person of each sign they are truly powerful together. The Libra helps the Aries to grow and in this they both end up in a wonderful place.
When these two signs find one another their relationship is extremely intense. They work together and really make one another stronger in many ways. Both of these signs hold deep desires and are very power driven. Together their passion knows no bounds.
These two connect mentally, physically, and in all other possible ways. They both have a good sense of optimism and even in the worst situations are able to stay calm. They communicate well and when in the right environment, can truly be extremely powerful.
While they do face a lot of stress this power couple is amazing. They get along well and learn from one another. They really pull one another out of their shells and help raise each other up. They are however sometimes hit or miss relationships though, either things are great or they are awful there is not much room for in between.
These two signs both have a similar idea in regards to love. While they seem a bit too different things really work well. They are incredible lovers for one another and once they find a proper way to coexist they truly flourish.
These two signs are both mutable which means they are both flexible and good at adapting. They fit well together and are truly powerful because of how quickly they are at fixing their problems. When a bad situation arises they squash all the tension well before it grows into too much.
These two have a very secure bond with one another. They dont fight often and really find in each other the things they have been looking for. They tend to be some of the best possible matches within the zodiac realm.
This dynamic duo is an amazing one. They are able to really respect and still challenge one another on a real level. They are powerful in many ways and make sure each other both have their needs met. They are both extremely loyal and draw str...

Well open all borders and let in a massive flow of immigrants and erase national identities. Terror attacks will multiply. Well put a lid on talking about immigrants as the cause of the terror.
Call it hate speech. Well train the population of Europe to accept terrorism as part of the glorious future. It makes no logical sense, but so what? No top-down ideology ever made sense.

Thanks to my long-time former colleagues from the Intelligence Community, whom I worked with in my years with the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force, from both inside and outside the US, I am pleased to be the ONLY media outlet to be able to report this extraordinary information . . . .
The jig is finally up. The Dominoes are all in position to be knocked over. The "elite" have phoned, faxed, and emailed many of themselves right into prison, or worse. (When the public finds out, probably "worse.")
At the meeting in Helsinki, Finland, between Presidents Putin of Russia and Trump of the USA, the Russians gave to Trump at least 160 TERABYTES of Russian Intelligence Intercepts which expose horrifying activities of many, many, people to deliberately foment social, cultural, and political chaos, violent riots, demonstrations, media smears, phony scandals, and fake news.
Some of those intercepts reveal who has been financing weapons, supplies, travel, hotel, vehicle rentals and secure communications gear for Terrorist groups, inside Syria, Iraq, and terror attacks in Europe and the US.
Among the intercepted communications are mostly international phone calls, faxes, emails by members of the US Congress, US Senate, federal Judges, state-level elected officials from California, Oregon, Washington, New York (City & State), New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maryland and Virginia. Once those communications left the United States, they became fair game for any country to spy on.
Republicans, Democrats, and most of the mainstream media blast Trump for his joint press conference with Putin. I cheer. President Trump dropped his demand that the EU stop Nordstream2 and Russia agreed to work with the US on various issues. Here is the 48 minute YouTube Video of the Helsinki Summit.

SURPRISE! POTUS Trump TOLD Rod Rosenstein
to announce Muellers indictment of 12 RUSSIANS before his meeting
Posted on July 18, 2018
Source: The National Sentinel
(National Sentinel) Presidential: When Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced on Friday that special counsel Robert Mueller had indicted 12 more Russians, all of whom work for the GRU, Russias intelligence service, we thought he was trying to undermine POTUS Donald Trump ahead of his meeting with Vladimir Putin.
So did a lot of others in conservative, pro-Trump media.
We are all reflexively protective of POTUS Trump because he gets such a raw deal in the Left-wing pretend media.
Come to find out, however, it was POTUS himself who instructed Rosenstein to make the announcement just two days before the president sat down with Putin.
POTUS Trump believed that making the announcement before the meeting would give him some additional leverage over the Russian leader.
The Daily Caller reported:
President Donald Trump chose to have the indictments of 12 Russian hackers announced before his Helsinki summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to a Tuesday Bloomberg report.

Measure to split California into three states removed from ballot by the state Supreme Court | 18 July 2018 | The California Supreme Court decided unanimously Wednesday to remove from the November ballot a measure aimed at dividing California into three states. In a brief order, the court said it acted "because significant questions have been raised regarding the proposition's validity and because we conclude that the potential harm in permitting the measure to remain on the ballot outweighs the potential harm in delaying the proposition to a future election." The court, meeting in closed session, also agreed to rule eventually on the measure's constitutionality, a ruling that is likely to go against the initiative.

This has been a very introspective day, despite the usual amount of hectic activity, phone calls, correspondences and case work. I have had cause to think deeply about my friends and compatriots on this narrow road. So many have struggled and still are.
Rod Class is preparing his answer to the Federales challenge of his right to keep and bear arms.
Other friends are taking the accounting and system errors straight to the source-- the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency.
Still others are forging ahead with new means of enforcing and accessing indemnity guarantees.
I am so grateful to know all these wonderful, determined people. It makes me proud to be part of the effort to restore America and the rightful American government --- to, as Donald Trump put it -- "Make America Great Again".
We might also say --- "Make America American Again".
We have been under the thrall of corrupt European and corporate powers for a long, long time. It feels good to know that we finally have the "weather gauge" on the vermin and that our Ship of State is no longer headed for the jagged rocks our enemies had in mind for us.
We can thank many, many, many good men and women for that, people here in the states and people in far away and unexpected places like South Africa and Estonia and Paraguay, too.
People of goodwill, people who are honest, have risen up and taken action, each in their own way and their own place --- and the difference is now being felt.
Egypt To Open A Giant Black Mystery
Sarcophagus Despite Warnings
July 18, 2018
By Arjun Walia
Not long ago, Egyptian Archaeologists discovered a huge 2,000-year-old sealed coffin, and as youd imagine, they want to open it to see who or what is inside.
The sarcophagus was discovered in a tomb deep under the Egyptian city of Alexandria earlier this month (July 2018). Its believed to be the largest sarcophagus ever discovered in Alexandria. Its 9ft long, 5ft wide and 6ft deep, according to Mostafa Waziri, the general secretary of Egypts Supreme Council of Antiquities.
This has sparked quite the storm on the internet, as people point to the well known curse of the pharaohs, a term used to refer to a supposed curse believed to be thrown upon anyone who disturbs an ancient Egyptian mummy.
Rh negative, Blue Blood, Aliens,
Posted on February 20, 2013
Source: Wandering Truth Seeker
Today I would like to write about my blood type and the many stories surrounding it. My blood type is A-. No scientist can tell you where it came from. It does not exist any where in nature. Only 15% of the worlds population has Rh negative blood. It is called blue blood. I certainly am not royalty nor a president as some like to think about Rh negative blood. A lot of Royalty and Presidents do have Rh negative though. I wish they would throw some money and power my way.
Some say that rh- blood is from Jesus and I stop to think. Am I a descendant of Jesus? Probably not. They say that the blood on the Shroud of Turin is AB negative. AB blood is very rare, either positive or negative, but especially negative. My father was AB negative. Maybe he was from off planet.
They also say that I may be descendant from the Reptilian Aliens. I do get cold easy, have low blood pressure, but no tail or extra vertebrae. I dont think Im a snake either. Others say I could be from any alien from off world. I have been looking for the mother-ship to come pick me up.
People with O negative can give blood to any one, so they ( like in the Red Cross) track people with O negative. But I can only take a blood from another A negative and O negative. But I do wonder where it came from. I have looked it up on the computer but alas, all the weird stories and if a scientist can tell where it originally. Some say it comes from Neanderthal, but they died out didnt they? If it came from the Neanderthal, where did he get it? Enquiring minds want to know. I ask my shrink about it and he got a little miffed when I told him I might be a descendant of Jesus. I guess he didnt have Rh negative blood.

PRINCE Philips DNA helped identify the bodies of Russias murdered royal family 75 years after their deaths.
The Duke of Edinburgh gave a sample of his blue blood to scientists after the discovery in 1991 of mutilated remains suspected of being Tsar Nicholas II, his wife and their five children.
GETTY - CONTRIBUTOR | Prince Philip gave a blood sample to scientists to help them prove conclusively that the Russian royal family were murdered in 1918
They are widely believed to have been gunned down and their bodies dumped in unmarked graves by communist agitators in 1918, just months after the Russian Revolution.
Now, exactly 100 years later today, a new exhibition will reveal Philips efforts to help solve the mystery surrounding the deaths of the Romanov royals.
The Duke is the great nephew of Empress Alexandra, Tsar Nicholass wife, meaning genetic testing provided the key to discovering their tragic fate once and for all.
Two years after the bodies were found, experts were able to extract Philips DNA and match it with samples taken from the skeletons of the Tsarina and her four daughters also executed in cold blood by revolutionaries.
RAND PAUL: 'The Only Person We Know
Colluded with Russia was HILLARY CLINTON'
Senator Rand Paul continued to call-out the medias blatant double-standard surrounding allegations of Russian-collusion this week, saying the only person we actually know colluded with Russia was former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Paul was speaking with Fox News when he blasted the lefts full-fledged obsession with Vladimir Putin Tuesday, adding that Robert Muellers year-long investigation has so far yielded no evidence the Trump campaign worked with the Kremlin.
The president sees the Mueller investigation. He sees all these accusations from partisan Democrats, Hillary Clinton, saying Oh, he colluded with the Russians, Rand said. The only people who we actually know colluded with the Russians were Hillary Clinton who paid a British agent who paid Russians for information for the dossier.

Secret Helsinki deal: US (& Israel)
behind agreement with Russia at the summit
Source: Battle for the World
DEBKA July 18, 2018: The article highlights that the scandal over President Donald Trumps defense of President Vladimir Putin against US intelligence at the Helsinki press conference for which he, sort of, apologized has given him cover, where it served as a distraction from a momentous military-intelligence deal the two presidents secretly contracted at their summit, with approval from Israel. (BattleForWorld: I did not know that the United States government was really US and Israel sharing power?)
According to DEBKAfile, it has obtained exclusive access to this deal and can reveal for the first time that it provides for the handover to Russian responsibility of all parts of southern and southwestern Syria abutting on the Israeli and Jordanian borders, including, most importantly, surveillance and observation elevations that oversee all parts of Syria, Iraq, Jordan, Israel, Lebanon and the eastern Mediterranean. And that President Trump and Binyamin Netanyahu thereby gave Putin a valuable asset for boosting Russias military presence in Syria and the region at large.

You are essentially giving your DNA to a company, and in many cases, they use that data in clinical studies or sell it to third-party companies. While this doesn't sound all that bad, and it may not be in all cases, do you truly know what's happening with your DNA?
"It can be very surprising to individuals when they learn the genetic testing they've done, or even lab results from biopsies, etc. are widely shared with third parties" said Will Lowe, founder of TimiCoin/TimiHealth. "This very personal data should in fact be owned by the very person from whom the DNA was harvested," he added.
In some cases, maybe you read the fine print and saw what companies intended to do with your information, or maybe you didn't. Either way, the question is, when handing over your DNA during an act of kindness like donating blood, if it's your DNA, shouldn't you have control of it, own it and be able to access the samples when/if you need them for treatment? What about if your data is being sold, should you be able to profit off of it? Should information on be centralized, owned and controlled by large pharma companies?
This is where new ventures TimiHealth and TimiCoin come into play. They are on a mission to help you maintain ownership of your own DNA records and health information in general. It represents a new business paradigm, whereby information is centralized in terms of permitted access but decentralized in terms of who has the power over the information. No longer will masses of valuable personal information be owned and controlled by large corporations, but rather will be owned and controlled by each individual, not only giving the individual the ability to monetize their personal information themselves, but also securing the validity of that information through personal verification and safeguarding against fraud.

This is an excellent and fact-filled discussion with a credible source. Kevin Shipp recites a litany of Title 18 felonies committed by key figures in the deep statejust off the top of his head.
He tells Greg Hunter about the server still in the possession of the FBI belonging to Anthony Weiner with 700,000 emails comprising his insurance policy, Hillarys missing emails, probable indictments, espionage, Comey, Strzok, FBI, Hillary Clinton, crimes against children, the fraud, embezzling of funds to the Clinton Foundation, and what Uranium One was all about. It wasnt a one-shot deal, he claims. It was a money laundering machine that kept on giving. All in all, a very revealing little chat.
We didnt need anyone to tell us the Clinton home server emails were never missing. The NSA knows all and communications are always available.
Shipp reveals that Russian mobsters (not Putin) contacted Hillary Clinton with the purpose of setting up the espionage scheme. As we know, Obama was well aware of collusion with Russians.
In this conversation they are asking some pointed questions about HRC. Who, exactlyor whatis Hillary Clinton, and Bill Clinton. Why are all these high-level people risking themselves to protect her and elect her to the presidency? What kind of power do they wield? Very good question.

Part IV Creators, Neutrality, 5D Reality & The Higher Self
I talk to Geraldine Orozco of BayAreaMeditation about the information she has been receiving about our 3D structures of the Matrix Reality and what challenges our reality to stay pure and focused on our own personal ascension.
We are creatures of creation. We are all Gods, creating our own reality within this 3D Matrix. But we also have the ability to create beyond this physical reality. We can create multi-dimensionally on all levels. As we move into higher dimensions, our science and physics will change as it is a new construct of reality.
So we must ask, "Who are we contributing to with our vibration, every moment of our day. We are creating realities with our thoughts and emotions. So we must be conscious of all our senses and ask if they are truly ours. We must become our own individuals, consciously aware of our power and consciousness. That is when we begin to own our experience on a higher level.
That is why our internal work is so important and why Meditation is our protection, consciousness, presence and our ability to dominate this Matrix Reality. Neutrality and Meditation is a tool from this Matrix Reality. This neutral perspective is how we heal these dualities without losing or taking anything.
This new 5D Reality is about our service to others rather than the service to self. That is why we are all being called to find our new identity to understand who we are and why we are here and what are our gifts. This soul identity is what holds the keys to new gifts and our awakening. Our consciousness is being united to heal and come together.

Now, apparently, some of the partially-informed and half-baked among us are sending out "Warrants for Arrest" addressed to whoever they disagree with. Not only is this a "threat" within the meaning of the Public Law being made against living people, it is also an act arguably well-within the meaning of "paper terrorism" under statutory law.
It is also an attempted infringement of everyone else's free speech.
This idea that you can go around sending out "warrants" for the arrest of other people based on your opinions needs to be squelched. With prejudice.
This latest plague of nonsense will either be: (a) laughed out of the courtroom or (b) more likely used as an excuse to "make an example out of" more people.

The actual entity doing business as The United States of America has nothing to do with any Scottish corporation doing business under conditions of copyright infringement and fraud, and therefore nothing to do with Keith Livingway and claims to own "The United States of America" by seizing it back from Scottish pirates...

I just came across this YouTube video. This guy does a good job decoding the Trump - Putin Conference.
I found it very interesting to see how the Russian Journalists asked very practical and meaningful questions as apposed to the "Fake News Media" journalists.
Two of my favourite Presidents, whom I believe are working for the alliance.

The California Supreme Court has blocked a ballot initiative which would split California into three (archived). The members of the court decided that letting their democracy work would be more harmful than denying California the vote.
WASHINGTONThe White House and the State Department are at odds over Russian President Vladimir Putins offer to allow the U.S. access to Russians accused of election meddling in return for interviews of Americans accused by the Kremlin of unspecified crimes.
Even as the White House said the offer, made by Putin to President Donald Trump at their summit in Helsinki on Monday, was under consideration, the State Department called Russias allegations against the Americans absurd, suggesting that any questioning of them would not be countenanced by the U.S. The Russian claims against the Americans, including former U.S. Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul, relate to allegations of fraud and corruption.
The overall assertions that have come out of the Russian government are absolutely absurd: the fact that they want to question 11 American citizens and the assertions that the Russian government is making about those American citizens, spokeswoman Heather Nauert told reporters.
McFaul tweeted Wednesday: I hope the White House corrects the record and denounces in categorical terms this ridiculous request from Putin. Not doing so creates moral equivalency between a legitimacy US indictment of Russian intelligence officers and a crazy, completely fabricated story invented by Putin.
Nauert noted that a U.S. federal court had already rejected Russias charges regarding British businessman and vocal Kremlin critic Bill Browder. She said Russian authorities already know the U.S. position. Browder was a driving force behind a U.S. law targeting Russian officials over human rights abuses.
We do not stand by those assertions that the Russian government makes, Nauert said. The Prosecutor General in Russia is well aware that the United States has rejected Russian allegations in this regard. We continue to urge Russian authorities to work with the U.S. Department of Justice to pursue those in Russia who in fact perpetrated the fraudulent scheme that Russia refers to that targeted not only Mr. Browder, but also his company and the Russian people as a whole.
FBI Director Christopher Wray was similarly dismissive. Speaking Wednesday at the Aspen Security Forum in Colorado, he said Putins offer was not high on our list of investigative techniques.
Wray and Nauerts comments stood in sharp contrast to those of White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who held open the possibility that what Trump called an incredible offer is being weighed.
The presidents going to meet with his team, and well let you know when we have an announcement on that, she said, adding that neither Trump nor anyone else in the administration had committed to accepting the offer.
WASHINGTONMore than a month after North Korea pledged to immediately return some American war dead, the promise is unfulfilled.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who traveled to Pyongyang this month to press the North Koreans further, said Wednesday the return could begin in the next couple of weeks. But it could take months or years to positively identify the bones as those of specific American servicemen.
In a joint statement at their Singapore summit, President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un committed to recovering the remains of prisoners of war and those missing in action decades after the Korean War including the immediate repatriation of those already identified.
That was more than a month ago, on June 12. Although Trump said eight days later that the repatriation had happened, it had not. It still has not. So, it was not immediate, though the Stars and Stripes newspaper reported from South Korea on Tuesday that the North has agreed to transfer as many as 55 sets of remains next week. The Pentagon and the State Department declined to comment on any specifics promised by the North.
Were making progress along the border to get the return of remains, a very important issue for those families, Pompeo said Wednesday at the White House. I think in the next couple of weeks well have the first remains returned, thats the commitment, so progress certainly being made there.
Likely also to prove untrue is the part of the Trump-Kim statement that said the North had war remains already identified. It apparently has bones and perhaps associated personal effects, but history shows that any remains handed over by the North are likely to be difficult to identify. In recent days the State Department has changed that phrase to already collected, suggesting it realized the remains have not been identified.
There are no missing Americans who have been already identified by the DPRK (North Korea) to be repatriated, says Paul Cole, who has researched POW-MIA issues from the Korean War for decades and served for four years as a scientific fellow at the Pentagons Central Identification Laboratory in Hawaii. He said this element of the Singapore statement reflects a near total ignorance of the role of science in accounting for war dead.
There is even some doubt that any remains turned over would be of Americans. Trump admitted as much in a CBS News interview July 14.
You know, remains are complicated, he said. Some of the remains, they dont even know if they are remains.
Thats a big step back from his false assertion June 20 in Duluth, Minnesota: We got back our great fallen heroes, the remains sent back today, already 200 got sent back.
Imagine if Comcast or Verizon or AT&T, or any other internet service providers (ISPs), had the authority to decide what websites you could visit, or what video chat program you must use to call friends or family. Imagine if they manipulated the speed that websites load, giving preference to content providers that paid extra to be in an internet fast lane. Imagine if they prevented you from watching videos on any site except YouTube, or barred you from using Skype. These ISPs provide the connection to the internet, but they shouldnt be able to control how you use the internet. This core quality of the internet, that it is open, is called net neutrality.
Current internet regulations just put in place by the Trump administration do away with net neutrality.
One of President Donald Trumps key policy objectives, as stated by former White House adviser Stephen Bannon, is to deconstruct the administrative state. At the Federal Communications Commission, Chairman Ajit Pai has been busily eliminating regulations that govern the U.S. media system, including Obama-era net neutrality protections. Pai replaced those with his own, Orwellian-sounding Restoring Internet Freedom regulations, empowering the big ISPs to do just the opposite.
In May, responding to a groundswell of opposition to the net neutrality rollback, the U.S. Senate passed a resolution of disapproval under the Congressional Review Act, which allows Congress to override regulations put forth by federal agencies. Such resolutions need to pass the Senate, the House, and then be signed by the president in order to become law. Three Senate Republicans joined all 49 Senate Democrats in passing the resolution. Now the resolution must pass in the Republican-controlled House of Representatives. This week, the House effort, initiated by Democrats, picked up its first, crucial House Republican co-signer, Mike Coffman, R-Colo. Net neutrality proponents see his newfound support as evidence that grass-roots organizing is working, and vow to step up the pressure on others.
Coffman indicated his support came from constituent pressure, said Craig Aaron, president and CEO of Free Press, after hearing of Coffmans decision. More members of Congress are going to be hearing from people in the weeks ahead. Were working with our partners to organize in-district drop-ins, local rallies and meetings with small businesspeople who care about the open internet.
Immediately after President Barack Obamas FCC passed the net neutrality rules in 2015, the telecom industry sued in federal court to get rid of them. The D.C. Court of Appeals ultimately upheld the regulations. That important ruling included a dissent written by Judge Brett Kavanaugh, the man Trump just nominated to the U.S. Supreme Court.
In that dissent, Kavanaugh made t...

Hy-Brasil was an island which appeared on ancient maps as early as 1325 and into the 1800s. On most maps, it was located roughly 321km (200 miles) off the west coast of Ireland in the North Atlantic Ocean. One of the most distinctive geographical features of Hy-Brasil on those maps is that it often appears as a circle with a channel (or river) running east to west across the diameter. Stories about the island have circulated throughout Europe for centuries with tales that it was the promised land of saints or a paradise where an advanced civilization lived. In Irish myth, it was said to be clouded in mist except for one day every seven years when it became visible but still could not be reached.
Hy-Brasil on a map from 1325 ( Ocultoreveladoaverdade)
Hy-Brasil (also called Hy-Breasal, Hy-Brazil, Hy-Breasil, Brazir) is derived from the name Breasal meaning the High King of the world in Celtic history. It was noted on maps as early as 1325, by the Genoese cartographer Angelino Dulcert where it was identified as Bracile. It later appeared in the Catalan Atlas in 1375, which placed it as two separate islands with the same name, Illa de brasil.
In 1436, it showed up as Sola De Brasil in the Venetian map by cartographer Andrea Bianco. Attached to one of the larger islands of a group in the Atlantic, this was identified for a time with the Mater Island. It would show up again in 1595 on the Ortelius Map of Europe and Europa Mercator Map and occasionally show up in slightly different locations on different maps over time.

In 1480, John Jay Jr. departed from Bristol, England on a journey to find the fabled island only to come back empty handed after spending two months at sea. In 1481, two more ships, the Trinity and...

First, Putin blindsided the media when asked if he would extradite the 12 Russian officials indicted by Robert Muellers special counsel last week for allegedly interfering in the 2016 presidential election.
Although he did not agree to extradite the officials, he did invite Mueller and his team to participate in joint interrogation effects on Russian soil to question the accused.
An extraordinary movie about an ordinary girl named Kayla, Eighth Grade follows her through a final week of middle school. The film, like its heroine, is equal parts cringeworthy and inspirational.
Kayla has the misfortune of being a 13-year-old in an era when teenagers live their lives online, one in which how you look matters and who you are does not. But she has the fortune of being deeply, unconditionally loved by her father (Josh Hamilton), even though they are rarely on the same wavelength.
So vividly played by Elsie Fisher that more than once I had to remind myself that Eighth Grade is not a documentary, Kayla is not unattractive. But she is majorly awkward, shuffling down corridors, her blue eyes glued to leaden feet as if the universe judges her as wanting. Actually, Kayla is more ignored than she is judged.
At school, her distinction is to be voted Most Quiet. At home she makes chatty, affirmational videos on subjects such as Be Yourself. And in one of the films affectionate contradictions, the next morning she gets up, slathers on makeup, arranges her hair, and returns to bed to take a just-woke-up-like-this selfie.
In his directorial debut, filmmaker Bo Burnham, himself a onetime YouTube phenom, comes not to bury the internet and e-communications but to understand them as social tools that can be used for ill as well as to connect the disconnected. At best, social media can help lost souls like Kayla find their tribe, or at least text to potential tribe members.
While there is a lot of social anxiety in Eighth Grade, for the most part it is a low-key film that invites the audience to empathize with and embrace Kayla and her apprehensive father. And much of it affirms writer John Ciardis observation that [y]ou dont have to suffer to be a poet. Adolescence is enough suffering for anyone.
Spoiler alert: The film is as much a cautionary tale for parents as it is a portrait of a supercharged transition moment for teens.
To my surprise, the film made me look differently at phenomena I opposed as a parent of teenagers. It persuaded me that the cellphone is not necessarily a crutch, but a kind of night light for adolescents. That time spent on YouTube videossuch as Kaylas about projecting confidenceis not just a way of avoiding homework, but also a way to think out new ideas and rehearse for real-life encounters.
As I watched Eighth Grade, not only did I relive my adolescence, but those of both my daughters. What made it all worth it was Kaylas supreme resilience and optimism. She never catastrophizes, nor does she take the dirt road into Negativetown. In the belief that the arc of teenage life bends toward gladness, she soldiers on and finds that belief justified. At an awkward age, Kayla...
Before Noahs Great Flood: Here Are 3 Flood Stories That Predate The Bible
For those who do not know, alkaline water is great. It holds many wonderful benefits for us all and is usually a much better choice than a neutral or acidic type of water.
Alkaline water is basically just water that is good for us. Yes, better than simply getting purified or filtered water. When you think about how much of our bodies are made up of water, wouldnt you want to get the best kind? Far too many people these days are choosing soda and things of the sort over water and it is not doing them any favors.
When it comes to this kind of thing, paying attention to your pH balance is important. Also, it is important to note that a study carried out in Japan a few years back found that alkaline water is an effective detoxifying agent as well as quite able to destroy cancerous cells. Now, when it comes to pH levels anything 6.0 or below is considered to be a bit too acidic and anything over a 7.0 is considered to be alkaline. 7.0 is basically the neutral pH and if you are someone that partakes in the western (overly consuming fast food) diet you are probably too acidic within your body which means drinking water over 7.0 would be much better for your health.FoodsTutuorial
That all being said, when it comes to buying alkaline water from the store, you cant assume the pH written on the bottle is correct. Many have noticed that they are quite inaccurate and some of the most unexpected brands end up being more alkaline than youd think. If you dont want to test your water with pH strips you can always check out some videos online of others doing so to find a brand you think will suit you. However, in a pinch sometimes making your own alkaline water is a good option as well.
1 Gallon container with lid
1 Gallon of filtered or distilled water (preferably one with a more neutral pH)
Sea salt (or Himalayan Pink Salt)
Pour about half of a gallon of that water into the other jug. Add in about a teaspoon of baking soda and a teaspoon of sea salt. Mix/stir this well until dissolved. From here wash the lemon and cut it in half, squeeze as much juice as you can into the bowl.

Depression is a growing problem in the United States, a serious mental illness that, when left untreated, can negatively impact every area of ones life, even leading to thoughts of suicide in some cases. Despite the potentially serious consequences, many of those who are suffering will never receive the treatment they require.
Taking the data from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, researchers and mental health professionals analyzed the prevalence of depression in the United States today compared to the recent past and determined that there is a noticeable increase, especially among the youngest and oldest age groups, those with the highest levels of education as well as the highest and lowest income groups. However, despite the increased rate of depression in the country, the rate of treatment has not increased highlighting a major problem.
Depressions is most common among those with least access to any health care, including mental health professionals. This includes young people and those with lower levels of income and education, explained Renee Goodwin, Ph.D., the leading researcher. Despite this trend, recent data suggest that treatment for depression has not increased, and a growing number of Americans, especially socioeconomically vulnerable individuals, and young persons, are suffering from untreated depression. Depression that goes untreated is the strongest risk factor for suicide behavior and recent studies show that suicide attempts have increased in recent years, especially among young women.
With two of the major barriers to obtaining treatment being access to health care and the barrier created by the negative stigma regarding mental health care in our country, a number of professionals are now starting to think outside the box and consider the possibility of less traditional treatment methods. These are treatment options that still consider the known science behind the disease, however, they offer a new and unique approach to addressing it.
One of the most accepted explanations for depression is the imbalance of chemicals within the brain, leading professionals to explore how they could boost the necessary positive chemicals in order to improve our mood and manage the symptoms. It is at this point that a number of doctors have pointed to a phenomenon known as the exercise effect or runners high.

Despite efforts to enforce a new hunting law and force hunters to get new licenses, hunting crimes are still numerous in Lebanon and overhunting is undermining efforts of local NGOs. To make things worse, the Higher Council of Wild Hunting has recently recommended a 2-month extension to the hunting season, a request that has been denied by Lebanons Environment Minister but no official statement was released rejecting it.
Instead, the minister said he was willing to listen to the concerns of environmental organizations and consult with the council in order to take its observations into consideration.
Moreover, he called on civil society groups to put forward to the ministry any information that might demonstrate grounds to change the councils decision, which is utter nonsense and a waste of time. We shot more birds than any other country in the Middle East (except Cyprus maybe), and the indiscriminate killing of migratory birds is still ongoing in Lebanon and has been thoroughly documented by the Committee Against Bird Slaughter (CABS).
On another note, hunters are cheating their way into getting the new licenses and hunters without licenses are setting up electronic bird callers and spinning lures to coax the birds down a technique prohibited under the law. The decision to extend the hunting season by 60 days is outrageous and should be revoked immediately, and the next government should have a competent environment minister capable of enforcing a strict hunting law.

If we were to follow Viktor Schaubergers teachings today, pure and healthy water would be within our reach, as well as the ability to produce almost limitless amounts of energy from plain water and airfor next to nothing. If we replaced the death-technology of the explosion with the bio-technology of the implosion, mankinds biggest problems could be solvedwhich is the reason why it has been held back to this day.
As far back as history permits us to see, every man who attempted to solve the mystery of water encountered bitter opposition. Every hint that we find in the ancient books, which might explain the true nature of water, has been blotted out in the next edition. Protecting the secret of water is a means to protect the interest-power of money. Only in an economy of scarcity can interest thrive.
If the problem of the production of water were to be solved, making it possible to produce any desired amount and quality of water at any given location, then man would have the power to make the expanses of the deserts bloom. The price of food and the cost of mechanical power would sink to such low levels that speculators would be able to gain nothing from them. Free access to nutrition and mechanical energy are such radical ideas that our concept of the world and all ideologies would be turned upside-down.
The secret of water is the capital of Capitalwhich is why any attempt to reveal it is ruthlessly terminated in embryo.
These lines were written by the remarkable Viktor Schauberger more than 60 years ago. A man, you might say, who had been sent by God to proclaim once again the true significance of water to enlightened modern men. A man of uncompromising honesty and dedication to nature. A man who faced bitter opposition his whole lifetime, before dying alone and impoverished, a broken man.
Yet he left behind an inheritance of incalculable worth, insights which still inspire and which form the building blocks of many astounding developments. And this by uncovering som...

One of a dozen new moons discovered around Jupiter is circling the planet on a suicide orbit that will inevitably lead to its violent destruction, astronomers say.
Researchers in the US stumbled upon the new moons while hunting for a mysterious ninth planet that is postulated to lurk far beyond the orbit of Neptune, the most distant planet in the solar system.Valetudo (one of Jupiters moons) is driving down the highway on the wrong side of the road.Scott Sheppard, Carnegie Institution
The team first glimpsed the moons in March last year from the Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory in Chile, but needed more than a year to confirm that the bodies were locked in orbit around the gas giant. It was a long process, said Scott Sheppard, who led the effort at the Carnegie Institution for Science in Washington DC.
Jupiter, the largest planet in the solar system, was hardly short of moons before the latest findings. The fresh haul of natural satellites brings the total number of Jovian moons to 79, more than are known to circle any other planet in our cosmic neighbourhood.
Nine of the new moons belong to an outer group that orbit Jupiter in retrograde, meaning they travel in the opposite direction to the planets spin. They are thought to be the remnants of larger parent bodies that were broken apart in collisions with asteroids, comets and other moons. Each takes about two years to circle the planet.
Two more of the moons are in a group that circle much closer to the planet in prograde orbits which travel in the same direction as Jupiters spin. Most likely to be pieces of a once larger moon that was broken up in orbit, they take nearly a year...

We reported over the weekend that -> The Democrats, Deep State Mueller and Rosenstein and their MSM are doing all they can to prevent President Donald Trump from meeting with Russian President Putin. Why are they so persistent in stopping the President of the US from meeting with Putin? You would think this was a good thing, right? President Trump is planning on meeting with Russian President Putin over the next few days in Finland. These will be the first scheduled meetings between the US President, accused by the Democrats and the Deep State and their MSM of the fake story of colluding with the Russians during the 2016 campaign. The Deep State is going crazy - CNN reports the following - "President Trump should cancel his meeting with Vladimir Putin until Russia takes demonstrable and transparent steps to prove that they won't interfere in future elections. Glad-handing with Vladimir Putin on the heels of these indictments would be an insult to our democracy," Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said in a statement. The top Democrat in the House, Rep. Nancy Pelosi of California, tweeted, "@realDonaldTrump must immediately cancel his meeting with Putin." Far left VOX goes as far as to call the meeting a gift for Putin. Corrupt Rosenstein came out Friday with a quickly scheduled presser to announce the indictment of another 12 Russians supposedly who interfered in the 2016 election. The case however, like the prior indictments against Russians, appears weak at best. Numerous observations already over the weekend show the indictments are suspect. So why are the Democrats, the Deep State and the MSM so petrified of President Trump meeting with Putin? The answer is because they are deathly afraid of not what Putin might tell Trump but what evidence Putin might have that would indict their leaders in prior criminal actions. -> We nailed it!
The Pentagon is developing plans to provide news items, possibly even false ones, to foreign media organizations as part of a new effort to influence public sentiment and policy makers in both friendly and unfriendly countries, military officials said. The plans, which have not received final approval from the Bush administration, have stirred opposition among some Pentagon officials who say they might undermine the credibility of information that is openly distributed by the Defense Department's public affairs officers. The military has long engaged in information warfare against hostile nations -- for instance, by dropping leaflets and broadcasting messages into Afghanistan when it was still under Taliban rule. But it recently created the Office of Strategic Influence, which is proposing to broaden that mission into allied nations in the Middle East, Asia and even Western Europe. The office would assume a role traditionally led by civilian agencies, mainly the State Department. The small but well-financed Pentagon office, which was established shortly after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, was a response to concerns in the administration that the United States was losing public support overseas for its war on terrorism, particularly in Islamic countries.

To an outsider, the fancy booths at last months health insurance industry gathering in San Diego arent very compelling. A handful of companies pitching lifestyle data and salespeople touting jargony phrases like social determinants of health.
But dig deeper and the implications of what theyre selling might give many patients pause: A future in which everything you do the things you buy, the food you eat, the time you spend watching TV may help determine how much you pay for health insurance.
With little public scrutiny, the health insurance industry has joined forces with data brokers to vacuum up personal details about hundreds of millions of Americans, including, odds are, many readers of this story. The companies are tracking your race, education level, TV habits, marital status, net worth. Theyre collecting what you post on social media, whether youre behind on your bills, what you order online. Then they feed this information into complicated computer algorithms that spit out predictions about how much your health care could cost them.
Are you a woman who recently changed your name? You could be newly married and have a pricey pregnancy pending. Or maybe youre stressed and anxious from a recent divorce. That, too, the computer models predict, may run up your medical bills.
Are you a woman whos purchased plus-size clothing? Youre considered at risk of depression. Mental health care can be expensive.
Low-income and a minority? That means, the data brokers say, you are more likely to live in a dilapidated and dangerous neighborhood, increasing your health risks.
We sit on oceans of data, said Eric McCulley, director of strategic solutions for LexisNexis Risk Solutions, during a conversation at the data firms booth. And he isnt apologetic about using it. The fact is, our data is in the public domain, he said. We didnt put it out there.
Insurers contend they use the information to spot health issues in their clients and flag them so they get services they need. And companies like LexisNexis say the data shouldnt be used to set prices. But as a research scientist from one company told me: I cant say it hasnt happened.
At a time when every week brings a new privacy scandal and worries abound about the misuse of personal information, patient advocates and privacy scholars say the insurance industrys data gathering runs counter to its touted, and federally required, allegiance to patients medical privacy. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, or HIPAA, only protects medical information.
We have a health privacy machine thats in crisis, said Frank Pasquale, a professor at the University of Maryland Carey School of Law who specializes in issues related to machine learning and algorithms. We have a law that only covers one source of health information. They are rapidly developing...
Russia's Defense Ministry on Tuesday said it stands ready to step up cooperation with the U.S. on international security matters outlined by President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin at their Monday summit in Helsinki. "The Russian Defense Ministry is ready for practical implementation of the agreements in the sphere of international security reached by Russian and U.S. Presidents, Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump, at their Monday's summit in Helsinki," Igor Konashenkov, a spokesman for the ministry said, according to the Russian state-run news agency TASS. Konashenkov said that Russia was ready to enter into discussions about extending the New START Treaty, which places caps on deployable nuclear weapons. As of now, that treaty is set to expire in 2021.
New York, July 18, 2018--Colombian authorities should immediately investigate a series of threats against journalists and news outlets in recent days, ensure the journalists' safety, and bring those responsible to justice, the Committee to Protect Journalists said today....
CNN commentator Marc Lamont Hill is facing a torrent of criticism over an Instagram post praising Assata Shakur - who was convicted of killing a police officer in 1977 - as "one of our most treasured freedom fighters." The Temple University professor and CNN contributor posted a photograph of Shakur on her 71st birthday, writing that he was praying for her "continued safety and protection" and said that reading her books had changed his life.
The Vlad and Donald show in Helsinki Monday was simply brilliant and breathtaking - we'd say even a beautiful thing to behold. Between them, they left CNN's nattering nabobs of neocon nonsense sounding like the shrieking monkeys they actually are. And that's to say nothing of the fools they made out of the newly minted liberal and progressive warmongers on the Dem side of the aisle in Washington or the so-called journalists who fill 90% of the space in the so-called mainstream media with endless pro-war propaganda. But most of all it was the single greatest blow to the War Party since it turned Imperial Washington into a colossal menace bent on global hegemony when the Soviet Union slithered off the pages of history in 1991. We have said all along that Putin and Russia have been demonized because the Warfare State desperately needs an "enemy" to justify its $800 billion annual mugging of America's taxpayers. Yet today's spontaneous chorus by the two leaders in behalf of dtente, dialogue and diplomacy puts the kibosh on that Big Lie more completely than could 100 Ted Talks or a year's worth of pro-peace op eds in the Washington Post. So Flyover America will have no trouble seeing the good of the Helsinki Summit. Trump and Putin just killed it on every topic where the War Party and its shills in the press wanted to drive a wedge. That is to say, cooperation on Syria, arms control, terrorism, North Korea, Ukraine; friendly competition on supplying natural gas to Europe; an invitation to Mueller to send his legal sleuths to Russia to participate in the interrogation of the 12 GRU ham sandwiches named in the indictment; and best of all, a reciprocal notion that Russian prosecutors come here to question Deep State operatives about how they helped one of the greatest scoundrels of modern times, Bill Browder, abscond from Russia with almost $1.5 billion skimmed from its people and on which he and his posse paid zero taxes either there or here.

There is a simple premise in esoteric literature: thoughts have power. Even modern science accepts that behind the structure we know as the material world is a web of energy, and the interactions between different types of energy create the semblance of solidity we call matter.
Thought, then, as a form of energy, has the same power. This is why in so many traditions there are admonitions about controlling the thought process, while thinking and doing are still different things, thinking does have its effects.
Clairvoyants of many persuasions have seen and documented the shapes and forms produced by various types of thought; witness the work of Charles Leadbeater.
While many of these forms are fleeting, when empowered by the emotions and by memory they become more than just thoughts, they become thought forms.
These thoughtforms exist beyond simply when they are thought they take on an independent existence within the mind of the thinker. They then influence memory and condition our perceptions of everyday life.
We may want to see these thoughtforms as only existing within the psyche of the neurotic or unstable, and yet all of us have our lives conditioned by the thoughtforms we have created in the past.
For most people they never see the present unfiltered, all experience is sieved through thoughtforms created from childhood, and even beyond through past lives.
Meme: (pron. meem) A contagious idea that replicates like a virus, passed on from mind to mind. Memes function the same way genes and viruses do, propagating through communication networks and face-to-face contact between people.

Thoughts however go much further. As documented in much modern research on Memes, thought forms can become like viruses of the mind. They can spread throughout groups, families, nations and indeed the world and are passed through the deeper levels of the unconscious we all experience.
Rumours, tales and urban myths are all memes or thought forms. While they may be primarily passed by the printed word, internet, media, etc., there is a time when they reach a certain saturation point and then become part of the collective unconscious.
This is exceptionally dangerous as negative and violent forms can control groups and crowds creating mob violence and aggression.
These group-minds are really thought forms out of control, and are known in the Gnostic Tradition as Archons. There are multitudes of Archons dwelling both within our minds and within the collective unconscious.
Not only can Archons exist in the unconscious collective mind, they can create a breach into the astral worlds through which fallen spiritual entities can then move into the earthly spheres and control the thoughtforms created.
Thousands of artificial intelligence (AI) experts and developers have signed a pledge vowing to neither participate in nor support the development, manufacture, trade, or use of lethal autonomous weapons, and imploring governments worldwide to work together to create a future with strong international norms, regulations, and laws barring so-called killer robots.
More than 160 companies and groups from three dozen countries and 2,400 individuals from 90 countries are backing the pledge, which was developed by the Boston-based Future of Life Institute (FLI) and unveiled Wednesday during the annual International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI) in Stockholm, Sweden.
Im excited to see AI leaders shifting from talk to action, implementing a policy that politicians have thus far failed to put into effect, declared FLI president and MIT professor Max Tegmark. AI has huge potential to help the worldif we stigmatize and prevent its abuse. AI weapons that autonomously decide to kill people are as disgusting and destabilizing as bioweapons, and should be dealt with in the same way.
As Anthony Aguirre, a professor at the University of California-Santa Cruz and pledge signatory, told CNN, We would really like to ensure that the overall impact of the technology is positive and not leading to a terrible arms race, or a dystopian future with robots flying around killing everybody.
Signatory Yoshua Bengio, an AI expert at the Montreal Institute for Learning Algorithms, explained that the pledge has the potential to sway public opinion by shaming developers of killer robots, also referred to called lethal autonomous weapons systems.
This approach actually worked for land mines, thanks to international treaties and public shaming, even though major countries like the U.S. did not sign the treaty banning land mines, Bengio pointed out in an interview with the Guardian. American companies have stopped building land mines.
Lucy Suchman, a professor at Englands Lancaster University, emphasized the importance of AI researchers staying involved with how their inventions are used, noting that as a developer she would, first, commit to tracking the subsequent uses of my technologies and speaking out against their application to automating target recognition and, second, refuse to participate in either advising or directly helping to incorporate the technology into an autonomous weapon system.&...
Moderators of hateful and violent speech on Facebook were told to treat popular posts differently: Its all about making money at the end of the day.
An undercover investigation has shed new light into the often hidden process by which Facebook removes hateful or violent content from its platform. In some cases, according to the report, it takes a lot for the companys moderators to remove even the most toxic posts or pagesespecially if they are popular.
"Intelligence" triggers Nancy Pelosi. When the House Minority Leader attempted to say the word today, she suffered a face spasm - just one of several during today's press conference with Intelligence Committee Democrats. While introducing her colleagues, Pelosi said, "I'm very honored to stand, uh, before members of the House Intelligence Committee," suffering a face spasm. She repeated herself - while reading from note cards. "We also want to protect, we also want to protect the Muell- the integrity of the Mueller investigation," Pelosi said.
Tommy Robinson, the former leader of the English Defence League, is to remain behind bars as three judges consider his appeal against a 13-month prison sentence for contempt of court - which he claims is excessive. Three judges have reserved their decision in the court of appeal after hearing evidence about Robinson's two convictions in Leeds and Canterbury for breaking reporting restrictions. Jeremy Dein QC, representing Robinson, said the sentence imposed on him in Leeds was "manifestly excessive".
In my previous article on the topic of immigration, I wrote that one of "the destructive consequences of non-integrated mass migration is a rise in crime". I naively thought the connection between migration and crime was obvious. However, after publishing the article, I researched the topic further and realized that, as usual, things are way more complex and interesting than it seems. In the present article we will try to understand the connections, if any, between migration and crime. To do so, we will go through a series of charts, we will interpret them and, more importantly, we will see how those data are often cherry-picked and twisted to serve extremist ideological discourses. First, let's have a look at how migration is perceived. In Europe, immigration has clearly become the most important source of concern among the average citizen. It is ranked higher than terrorism or unemployment. Whether this concern is justified doesn't really matter at this point, because it reveals an important point: a majority of European people are really concerned about immigration into their countries, i.e. there is an emotional load. And we know that heightened emotional states constitute a very fertile ground for hystericization, black and white thinking and extremist ideologies.
Labeling bottles with bigger health warnings will turn wine into a "criminal product" and damage "the soul of France", says the group of French top chateaus in response to the plan by the country's health ministry. In an attempt to stop the measure, 64 major French wine producers, including Domaine de la Romane-Conti, Yquem, Cheval Blanc, Petrus, Pol Roger and Roederer Champagne houses, have written an open letter, published by the French daily Le Figaro. The proposals to mark the bottles with two-centimeter-wide red tags were sent to industry officials last month. "Every day, our cellars, our domains and chateaus, our winemaking landscapes are welcoming thousands of travelers coming to discover this France, bosom of the art de vivre that is the envy of the world and where wine plays a leading role," the letter reads.

There is so much volatility going on in America, that the majority of us have overlooked a very important story and that is a defacto admission of a secret space program that is militarized!
President Trump has been hinting for months that he was going to create a separate branch of the military related to outer space that is being referred to as the Space Force. Trump, in effect, says that he is militarizing space. Trump is publicly giving the Outer Space Treaty the big middle finger as the treaty is recognized by over 100 nations including the U.S. The treaty prohibits military action in space.
This announcement came during a Jun 18, 2018 meeting of the US Space Council in which President Trump signed his third Space Policy Directive. This directive, on the surface, says that it will manage space traffic, minimize space debris and monitor orbiting spacecraft. This directive creates the first new US military branch since the Air Force was created in 1947. The MSM has ignored this development, for the most part as well as the Independent Media
Unfortunately, for the arena of military secrets, the President is not doing a very good job of lying.
John Logsdon is the former director of the Space Policy Institute at George Washington University and he recently stated:
The U.S. military has been very active in space for 60 yearsThis is not some breaking point of militarizing space
Vickie Sutton, a space law expert and former assistant director in the White House Science Office under George W. Bush, stated:
Several recent actions, such as the China maneuver where they targeted their own satellite to attack and created thousands of pieces of space debris in a demonstration of their ability to target a space object, as well as other overtures by other nations, make it essential that we have defensive capability.
When I saw the following on Fox News, I instantly recognized this for what it was.
while touting successes aro...
RT When he appeared to claim that Russia was no longer a threat to US, Donald Trump was actually saying that he would not field the question asked, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders insists. At the end of a press briefing on Wednesday, Trump was asked "Is Russia still targeting the US?" to which Trump said "Thank you very much, no." As the press was being shepherded out, he listened in to several more queries, also dismissing them with a curt "Thank you very much everybody." You can judge the moment for yourself here (approximately 44:30):
Here are two recent tweets from President Trump that tell the TRUE story about Trump/Putin and the Alliance...
Trump: 'While the NATO meeting in Brussels was an acknowledged triumph...the meeting with Russia may prove to be...an even great success. Many positive things will come out of that meeting...'
Trump: 'So many people at the higher ends of intelligence loved my press conference performance in Helsinki. Putin and I discussed important subjects at our earlier meeting. We got along well which truly bothered many haters who wanted to see a boxing match. Big results will come!'
The fact that 'many positive things' came out of a private meeting between Trump and Putin is scaring the cabal, literally, to death. They're toast - and they know it. Remember Q Anon said: 'The most guilty will shout the loudest...' Go to #TREASONSUMMIT to see the sickening parade of guilty cabal.
Trump described his Helsinki press conference as a 'performance'. That was for the Anons - Q Anon is always saying, 'Enjoy the show'. As Patrick says in his latest Intel Alert, enjoy the greatest show on Earth.
The lights 'malfunction' during the White House Press Conference is significant because Trump was talking about the intelligence agencies at the time. He said he had 'full confidence and support' in them as the light went out and came back on. That's confirmation that these agencies are now clean and ready to host Military Tribunals.
Finally, the delightful monarch butterfly outfits worn by Melania Trump and the Finland First Lady signify the capture and surrender of 'the Monarch' - Queen Elizabeth, head of the satanic cabal.
It's a great time to be alive on planet Earth!

With the $3.7 billion acquisition of Tribune, Sinclair would control more than 200 stations reaching 62% of U.S. households.
On Monday Federal Communications Commission chairman Ajit Pai said he had serious concerns about Sinclair Broadcast Groups plans to acquire Tribune Media. The four-person commission today voted unanimously to send the $3.9 billion acquisition proposal to an administrative judge to decide its merits.
European air giant Airbus on Wednesday unveiled a solar-powered drone called Zephyr that will fly at a high altitude and fulfil the same functions as a satellite. The project was presented at Britain's Farnborough airshow, where Airbus revealed that the Zephyr S took off on July 11 for its maiden flight from Arizona in the United States. "This maiden flight of the Zephyr S aims to prove and demonstrate the aircraft capabilities," Airbus said in a statement. The High Altitude Pseudo-Satellite (HAPS) has a wingspan of 25 metres (82 feet) and weighs less than 25 kilogrammes (55 pounds).

While Whole Foods Market, founded in 1980, has been a leading retailer of organic produce in the U.S. for decades, the company has faced its share of criticism; in later years being accused of operating more like an industrial organic company rather than a local distributor of high-quality organic food.
In 2007, it bought its chief rival Wild Oats an acquisition initially challenged by the Federal Trade Commission, which said the merger violated federal antitrust laws and provided Whole Foods unilateral market power that could raise prices and lower quality. The issue was eventually settled by selling off the Wild Oats brand and more than 30 physical store locations.1,2
Last year, Amazon announced its intention to acquire Whole Foods Market and its 465 stores, a $13.7 billion deal that had food manufacturers quaking in their boots, while organic producers worried the deal might compromise and dilute organic food standards even further.3 The acquisition went through on August 28, 2017.4 Within two days of the merger, Whole Foods store traffic rose by 25 percent. Within the first month, Amazon made $1.6 million off its online sales of Whole Foods private label products.
But while the success story of Whole Foods continues, questions about whether its really socially commendable to shop at Whole Foods have festered well over a decade.5 The company has faced well-deserved criticism for its effects on employees by refusing unionization, the environment due to its limited supply of local produce, and its selling of questionable products such as items containing MSG and rBGH, making label scrutiny a necessity even here.
Like most large corporations, it has shareholders to contend with, and the company has been accused of cutting corners to make a profit on more than one occasion. This trend is unlikely to change with Amazon at the rudder. As a matter of fact, while Whole Foods has spent the last five years promoting its promise to implement a comprehensive labeling policy6 for genetically modified organisms (GMOs) a promise that has been a major selling point to entice customer support that plan has now been laid aside.
As reported by New Food Economy,7...
Facing a ninja shortage, one Japanese town is willing to pay anyone $85,000 if they want to be one. Since the ninja population is on the decline and aging, the town of Iga is hoping to boost their numbers.
Iga is about 280 miles from Tokyo in central Japan and claims to be the birthplace of the ninja. Sally Herships recently reported the town of Igas woes on an episode of NPRs Planet Money podcast. However, there were also several benefits of the ninja lifestyle outlined as well.
This job does have a lot to offer, Herships explains. First of all, the pay is quite competitive. Today, ninjas can earn anything from $23,000 to about $85,000 which is a really solid salary, and in fact, a lot more than real ninjas used to earn in medieval Japan.
There is one stipulation, however, according to Maxim. Iga is not seeking bonafide ninjas to run around cutting off heads with swords and chucking ninja stars. Instead, Iga merely seeks ninja performers for tourism purposes. The mayor, Sakae Okamoto, simply wants to boost tourism to the town and is relying on the heritage of the ninja to do so.
Each year the city of about 100,000 increases by about 30,000 as tourists come to experience the annual ninja festival. Right now in Iga, we are working very hard to promote ninja tourism and get the most economic outcome, Okamoto told Herships. For example, we hold this ninja festival between late April to around the beginning of May. During this period visitors and also local people come here. Everybody will be dressed like a ninja and walks around and enjoys themselves but recently I feel that its not enough.
In hopes of encouraging tourists to stay longer than a day in Iga, Okamoto going to be relocating city hall and building a second ninja museum in its place. While the budget is not disclosed, Okamoto has received funding from the central government from the public Japans government is funding ninjas, Herships says.
This issue is also compounded considering Japans extremely low unemployment rate, which is around just...

When the trailer for Beirut came out, almost everyone wanted that movie banned and I remember a certain ministry wanting to file a lawsuit against it. There was even a hashtag to boycott it and claiming Lebanon doesnt look that way, even though Beirut was pretty much a sweaty hotbed of terrorism, savagery and barbarism in the 1980s. The main arguments that the movie wasnt shot in Lebanon and has no Lebanese actors, but that doesnt really change how good or bad a movie is.
In all cases, the movie is already showing in theaters across Lebanon and all those who asked for the boycott will probably end up watching it. Im now intrigued to watch it because it scored pretty well on IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes.
SHOW NOTES AND MP3: http://www.corbettreport.com/?p=7513 Although the likes of Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and Bill Gates are happy to sing its praises (or perhaps because they are), Planned Parenthood has a racist eugenicist past that it would prefer to sweep under the rug. The bigger problem for the organization, though, is that the past isn't over and the public is beginning to discover the real driving force behind this globalist institution.

This story is so important that, when I saw it and read it after Mr. G.F. passed it along to me, I knew I had to blog about it. Robert F. Kennedy Jr., son of the murdered Senator from New York, has, as most readers here are aware, raised concerns about the safety of vaccines. Indeed, at one point it was rumored that President Trump was thinking about appointing him to some position to oversee a study of vaccines. (See https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/trump-to-meet-with-proponent-of-debunked-tie-between-vaccines-and-autism/2017/01/10/4a5d03c0-d752-11e6-9f9f-5cdb4b7f8dd7_story.html?noredirect=on). Kennedy has continued to be outspoken on the subject, and this article on his most recent claim is well worth your consideration, especially if youre concerned about vaccine safety and good old-fashioned conflicts of interest:
The essence of Mr. Kennedys claim is simple:
According to RFK Jr., the CDC is not an independent government agency but is actually a subsidiary of Big Pharma.
Greenmedinfo.com reports: Mr. Kennedy told EcoWatch, The CDC is a subsidiary of the pharmaceutical industry. The agency owns more than 20 vaccine patents and purchases and sells $4.1 billion in vaccines annually. Again, no source.
Of course, if that is true, then the CDC is involved in a massive conflict of interest. So the articles author went looking to find if Mr. Kennedys claims could be substantiated, which they were, and in spades:
I am fortunate to have, as one of my partners in advocacy, fellow autism parent Mark Blaxill, an Intellectual Property expert who has been employed by billion dollar corporations to manage their patents. Blaxill was the man who found out that HHS, through NIH, owns patents on all HPV vaccines, and receives a percentage of the profits for each dose of Gardasil and Cervarix administered anywhere in the world. He published the stunning revelation in a detailed three part expose entitled, ...
Russian media reports say the former head of the Moscow branch of Russia's Investigative Committee has been detained until September 12 over alleged links to the bosses of organized criminal groups. General Aleksandr Drymanov, who faces a criminal investigation on allegations of bribe taking, was reportedly arrested by the Federal Security Service (FSB) at his Moscow apartment late on July 16. Interfax reports that he was detained "in a case of accepting bribes by high-ranking officials in exchange for freeing" a notorious criminal. Drymanov's lawyer, Aleksandr Karabanov, was quoted as saying Drymanov was being questioned by the FSB at Moscow's high-security Lefortovo jail. Drymanov resigned in June from his post as the chief of the Moscow Main Investigative Department. Drymanov has denied any wrongdoing, saying that he was "ready for the court battle."
Shocking footage has surfaced of a Las Vegas cop shooting through his own windshield in a blazing gun battle and high-speed chase. It came to an end with the suspects' SUV smashing into an elementary school. Police had been on the lookout for the stolen black SUV after a man was shot at a carwash at about 7.30am local time on July 11. He later died in hospital. In the video, released by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police on Monday, one officer can be heard yelling "Shots fired! Shots fired!" into his radio as they start to pursue the suspects' car. In an intense, four minute chase the SUV can be seen careering into oncoming traffic.
Due largely to overuse, were at risk of seeing many of our antibiotics lose effectiveness, leaving us without a defense against a number of potentially fatal infections. People are taking a variety of approaches to dealing with this, like looking for combinations of drugs that remain effective, developing entirely new drugs, and trying to reform how we dispense these critical drugs. (Although the latter may be an impossible dream.)
Theres another option that was under consideration even before antibiotic resistance had hit crisis levels: use something that makes killing bacteria part of its life cycle.

Its green, fuzzy, and it just got a lot brighter.
Comet C/2017 S3, discovered last September by the Panoramic Survey Telescope and Rapid Response System (Pan-STARRS) team that included Canadian Robert Weryk in Hawaii, is getting closer to the sun and things are starting to heat up literally.
As comets collections of frozen gas and dust near the sun in their orbits, solar radiation heats up their centre, or nucleus, which causes water and gases to sublimate, going straight from ice to gas without becoming a liquid. This creates both the fuzziness and tail for which comets are known.
As a result of that process, it appears that C/2017 S3 has brightened significantly, with some comet watchers reporting that it has increased 16-fold. Its atmosphere is estimated to be almost twice as wide as Jupiter.
What makes this even more exciting is that C/2017 S3 is unique.
Ones like this have never visited the inner solar system before, Weryk said. We dont really know what the surface is, but it certainly can go through brightening like this.
#Comet C/2017 S3 ( #PANSTARRS) on July 3rd 23:30 UTC. It is in an #outburst at ~9mag. #Perihel should be reached in August, maybe at naked eye brightness, if it survives until then. 360s/180s/180s/180s L-RGB pic.twitter.com/8z0HW92lmS

Because little is known about it, no one can say for sure how bright it will get. However, it is expected to get very close to the sun in August within the orbit of Mercury though it wont be bright enough to see unless youre in very dark skies. Even then, youll be pushing the limit of your eyes. However, it will be bright enough to spot with binoculars and telescopes.
The activity is becoming much more active, and we rely on observers who are chasing all these comets regularly to tell us what the actual brightness is, so its kind of hard to predict what these things will be, Weryk said....
Great minds like the English physicist, Brian Cox use the Hubble constant, the idea that the further a galaxy is from us, the faster it is flying away from us is a way to explain why were not at the center of the Universe. He goes on to say that the Universe is like a ball of dough filled with raisins when youre baking bread. As the raisins expand with the rising dough, the ones further from a singular raisin get farther away, and so on. Even though Cox can explain quantum mechanics in less than a minute, is even this genius a little off on his estimation of how the Universe works?
Cox states that according to Fenyman (another genius physicist) particles are particles and they hop from place to place with a particular probability. Another, equally brilliant physicist who worked on the Manhattan project and received a Nobel prize in physics for work in quantum electrodynamics, Julian Schwinger, believed that the Universe is made up of fields.
Yet another quantum physicist, considered a rogue in his field by contemporaries, believes we live in a holofractographic universe. Essentially, he brings together quantum and classical physics viewpoints into a unified theory of everything. His work is documented well at the Resonance Foundation.
He has proven using mathematical calculations that protons are entangled (meaning Coxs theory about particles is lacking) and that the very structure of the universe is created via a morphogenetic, zero-point field. So Fenymans theory of the universe being made up of fields is also still lacking.
In an article titled, How Contemporary Physics Points to God, by Robert Spitzer, the author states,...
The West's double standards toward Russian media have been on full display this week after the hysteria over the Putin-Trump Summit in Helsinki. The Western Mainstream Media routinely characterizes Russian media as "propaganda" on the misleading basis that publicly financed media outlets and those that regularly have exclusive scoops from government figures are supposedly "state-run". The prevailing narrative is that nothing that comes out of Russia should be believed because it might be part of a "Kremlin disinformation operation", whether it concerns Ukraine, Syria, or whatever else might be the topic of the day. Interestingly, that strict "standard" was just contradicted by none other than those same Western Mainstream Media outlets themselves after they reported on Russian media's positive response to the Putin-Trump Summit in Helsinki and hinted that this means that the American President might have committed "treason". The wink-and-a-nod editorial suggestion is that the Kremlin couldn't contain its joy at whatever was secretly agreed between it and the White House behind closed doors, sloppily ordering its "propaganda proxies" to exuberantly sing Trump's praises in what is now being framed as the ultimate "gotcha" moment that supposedly proves that something nefarious happened. This conspiratorial perspective proves just how desperately The Establishment is grasping for straws in order to concoct reasons for Americans to condemn the President for his very successful summit, which in the words of both leaders was a milestone in restoring the previously fraught relations between these two Great Powers. That, however, is precisely what the "deep state" is against because of its ideological opposition to any pragmatic cooperation with Russia.
While politicians and mainstream media outlets obsess over President Trumps recent press conference with Russian President Putin, the United States Treasury quietly announced that it will no longer force dark-money groups or certain tax-exempt organizations to disclose their financial donors.
While traditional charity groups must still disclose donors in order to receive tax-exempt donations, the change allows labor unions, nonprofits and issue advocacy groups to be free from being forced to adhere to confidential disclosure requirements.
In a statement praising the new rule, U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said, Americans shouldnt be required to send the IRS information that it doesnt need to effectively enforce our tax laws, and the IRS simply does not need tax returns with donor names and addresses to do its job in this area.
Mnuchin attempted to paint the shift as a good thing by claiming that it is important to emphasize that this change will in no way limit transparency.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell insisted that the new rules will keep Americans from being bullied for exercising their First Amendment rights, alleging that individuals could be fired from their jobs or bullied if their political donations are made public.
However, Senator Jon Tester argued that We need more transparency in our campaigns, not less, and said he views the rules change as unacceptable and the description of Washington at its worst.
D.C. bureaucrats just changed the rules to allow some politically active non-profits to hide large contributions. This is unacceptable & Washington at its worst. Ill keep fighting for transparency & to bring elections out of the darkness. #mtpol #mtsenhttps://t.co/NtQbcVk9aD

Those US and British politicians who are bashing Russia for foreign "election meddling" could use a more honest set of talking points. It is Israel, not Russia, China, or North Korea, that hosts a blossoming industry of cyber-election meddlers who operate from corporate offices in Tel Aviv, Cyprus, London, Washington, and Tortola. Most, if not all, of these firms, received their start-up funds from Israeli government-backed business development venture capital funds, some of which are solidly linked to right-wing American financiers like Robert Mercer, Paul Singer, Sheldon Adelson, and Donald Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner. The US media, subjected to a constant barrage of pressure from the all-powerful Israel Lobby, has refrained from reporting that when it comes to provable election meddling, including social media campaigns to smear politicians, Israel has become the "go to" place for politicians to seek election victory through guile and deceit. Israel "beta-tested" its social media manipulation software tools when, in 2006, it premiered "Give Israel Your United Support" (GIYUS) program and its associated Megaphone desktop computer article and commentary monitoring tool. The Israelis wanted to influence any bad press it received because of its 2006 surprise attack on Lebanon. Pro-Israeli volunteers around the world, who became known as "hasbara trolls," disrupted web sites take a number through various means. Options included the use of profanity on forums and chat rooms, especially toward the original poster of an item. But more than often, the infiltration took the form of posting extraneous information to detour the commentary thread away from uncomfortable subjects and promoting Israeli propaganda posted by dubious websites connected to the Israeli state.

Scientists may have found the missing piece to the puzzle of the Gaia hypothesis. First proposed by James Lovelock and Lynn Margulis in the 1970s, the Gaia hypothesis is an attempt to explain how Earth has managed to sustain life in the face of the multitudes of cosmic and terrestrial cataclysms that have befallen our pale blue dot throughout the approximately 3.8 billion years since our very first single celled ancestors started this whole mess.
Essentially, the Gaia hypothesis (named for the Greek goddess who personified our planet) states that organic life interacting with non-organic materialslike the rock that makes up Earths crustcreates conditions that allow life to persist. Another way to say it is that Earth functions just like any other multi-cellular organism, with self regulating processes and systems that make sure that the whole thing doesnt fall to pieces the next time it gets smacked with a space rock or some of its constituent parts go rogue and start tearing up the joint.
The thought that were all cells in the larger organism that is our mother Earth is a beautiful idea, even if it does sound like something your buddy Kevin might say around a campfire at 4 AM. The problem with the Gaia hypothesis is that scientists had no testable ideas on how these processes of self-stabilization might work. In a paper published in the journal Trends in Ecology and Evolution, scientists at the University of Exeter and University of Southhampton say they have found a solution to the puzzle of the Gaia hypothesis.
Writing in The Conversation, co-authors of the paper Tim Lenton and James Dyke say that the key may lie in the concept of sequential-selection:
In principle its very simple. As life emerges on a planet it begins to affect environmental conditions, and this can organise into stabilising states which act like a thermostat and tend to persist, or destabilising runaway states such as the sn...
This week, a team of scientists announced that a University of Hawaii telescope took images of a harmless asteroid that exploded over Africa five hours before it entered the Earth's atmosphere on June 2. The university's Asteroid Terrestrial-Impact Last Alert System (ATLAS) telescope took photos of the asteroid, which was named 2018 LA. Even though the asteroid was discovered by the Catalina Sky Survey telescope in Arizona a few hours later that same day, ATLAS played a major role in pinpointing the asteroid's final destination over Botswana, where its atmospheric entry was captured by security camera footage. "Prior to the ATLAS measurement, impact predictions showed 2018 LA hitting the Earth anywhere from Madagascar to the South Pacific - a range spanning almost half Earth's southern hemisphere," a July 13 University of Hawaii blog post stated.
In the run-up to the publication of my next book, Ive been monitoring sources across the spectrum of opinion on climate change. The other day I happened upon this piece, which describes recent measurements of ice mass and ice extent gains in the Arctic, Antarctic, and Greenland, along with cool surface and tropospheric temperatures. My heart sank. This is what Ive been worried about for several years now as Ive seen cracks spread in the global warming consensus.
Before I explain why I am worried about cooling, let me offer an opposing article, from Nature, stating that Antarctica is losing ice mass faster than ever, and another article predicting 10 degrees (Celsius) warming by 2021. For more dissonance, read this and this. Partisans of each side will no doubt hasten to explain to me how Ive been duped by the other, but my purpose here is not to establish the correctness of one viewpoint over another. Instead, I intend to illuminate something that gets lost in what has become a highly polarized and politicized debate.
Why on earth would I be concerned about global cooling? Given the dangers of global warming, one would think that signs of a cooling trend would be welcome news. Phew! Ecological catastrophe averted! Now we can go back to business as normal.
This is precisely my concern. Business as normal is ruining the planet regardless of whether the climate is warming or cooling. Here are some of the changes that have happened j...
About 100,000 pilgrims led by the head of the Russian Orthodox Church, have walked 21 kilometers in a solemn procession commemorating the 100th anniversary of the killing of the last Russian emperor Nicholas II and his family. The procession covered the distance between the Yekaterinburg Church of All Saints, built on the place of the house where Romanovs were killed in 1918, and the Monastery in the Name of Saint Regal Martyrs which now marks the site of the Romanovs' grave, or rather the site where their killers dumped the bodies in an abandoned mine. Patriarch Kirill walked together with the rest of the believers who came to honor the memory of the last Russian Tsar on the 100th anniversary of the killing. Overall, the procession lasted about 4 hours, TASS agency reported.

As pundits across the US continue their descent into rage over President Donald Trump's "treasonous" meeting with Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin, Whoopi Goldberg has called on Homeland Security to intervene. Speaking on 'The View' on Monday, Goldberg and her fellow presenters competed to see who could be the most enraged about Trump's behavior at the Helsinki summit with Putin. John McCain's daughter Megan got the most words in, addressing National Security Advisor John Bolton and the Trump administration. "Are you an America first, do you not believe in genocide? Or are you going to allow the chemical gassing of children right now?" Comment: Megan must have missed the little detail that OPCW found no traces of chemical weapons in Douma, Syria. She's apparently afflicted with the same denial of reality as her father.

Former CIA Director-turned-Twitter-troll, John Brennan went way off the rails Monday, calling Trump's presser with Putin an impeachable offense. Brennan claimed Trump's presser with Putin exceeded the threshold of "high crimes and misdemeanors" then said it was "nothing short of treasonous." Brennan promptly got schooled by attorney Gregg Jarrett.

The Trump-Putin summit earlier this week was a disappointment, although probably not for the reasons one might think. At a time when U.S.-Russia relations are at rock bottom, a nuclear arms race between the two is imminent, NATO has embarked on its largest military build-up since the Cold War and the two countries jockey for power in several proxy wars, the meeting produced scant progress on resolving these tensions. There was no statement or signed agreement, with Putin merely mentioning [...]
ABC News, 5/11/12: Columbia University researchers found a 40-fold rise in office visits among youth diagnosed with bipolar disorder between 1994-95 and 2002-3.
In 1995, a new wind began blowing across the psychiatric landscape. The public wasnt aware of it. But among professionals, it was big, very big:
Children, including the very young, could, for the first time, legitimately be diagnosed with bipolar disease (aka manic depression).
The impetus for this revelation was a 1995 report, Is Your Child Bipolar? written by two doctors at Massachusetts General Hospital, Janet Wozniak and Joseph Biederman.
Biederman would go on to become the target of internal investigations at Harvard and Mass Generaldid the pharmaceutical money he took influence his judgment in deciding bipolar was a real disorder among children? The charges against him were ultimately reduced to a few light slaps on the wrist; he retained his prestigious position.
But back in 1995, he and Wozniak, as the NY Times Magazine recounts (9/12/08, The Bipolar Puzzle), arrived at an earthshaking conclusion about children coming through their hospital clinic: a number of them fit the description of bipolar irritable manic.
It was a huge wow for the psychiatric profession. No one had seriously insisted, with convincing evidence, that very young kids could develop bipolar.
But now, psychiatrists were going to pick up that ball and run with it. Drug companies were going to develop and promote drugs (very serious and toxic drugs, like Risperdal) to treat childhood bipolar.
However, what the Times Magazine story mentionsbut no one pays attention tois this: Every one of these original manic bipolar children coming through Mass General, minus only one child, HAD ALREADY BEEN DIAGNOSED with ADHD, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.
What Biederman and Wozniakand the rest of the psychiatric profession...

The high professional quality of Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin's performance at their Monday press conference in Helsinki contrasts sharply with the obloquy by which the bipartisan U.S. ruling class showcases its willful incompetence. Though I voted for Trump, I've never been a fan of his and I am not one now. But, having taught diplomacy for many years, I would choose the Trump-Putin press conference as an exemplar of how these things should be done. Both spoke with the frankness and specificity of serious business. This performance rates an A+. Both presidents started with the basic truth. Putin: The Cold War is ancient history. Nobody in Russia (putting himself in this category) wants that kind of enmity again. It is best for Russia, for America, and for everybody else if the two find areas of agreement or forbearance. Trump: Relations between the globe's major nuclear powers have never been this bad-especially since some Americans are exacerbating existing international differences for domestic partisan gain. For the sake of peace and adjustment of differences where those exist and adjustment is possible, Trump is willing to pay a political cost to improve those relations (if, indeed further enraging his enemies is a cost rather than a benefit). In short, this was a classic statement of diplomatic positions and a drawing of spheres of influence.
Former top FBI lawyer Lisa Page testified during two days of closed-door House hearings, revealing shocking new Intel against her old bosses at the Bureau, according the well-placed FBI sources. Alarming new details on allegations of a bureau-wide cover up. Or should we say another bureau-wide cover up. The embattled Page tossed James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok and Bill Priestap among others under the Congressional bus, alleging the upper echelon of the FBI concealed intelligence confirming Chinese state-backed 'assets' had illegally acquired former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's 30,000+ "missing" emails, federal sources said. The Russians didn't do it. The Chinese did, according to well-placed FBI sources. And while Democratic lawmakers and the mainstream media prop up Russia as America's boogeyman, it was the ironically Chinese who acquired Hillary's treasure trove of classified and top secret intelligence from her home-brewed private server. And a public revelation of that magnitude - publicizing that a communist world power intercepted Hillary's sensitive and top secret emails - would have derailed Hillary Clinton's presidential hopes. Overnight. But it didn't - simply because it was concealed.
The reason for the upcoming testimony hasn't been revealed yet, while Pompeo himself has yet to comment on the information. Republican Senator Bob Corker has announced that US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is due to testify on Russia before the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee next week. According to the senator, the White House "got to be reeling" after the Helsinki summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin. However, the reason for the testimony, as well as the exact date, remains unknown. Neither the US State Department, nor the White House or Pompeo himself have commented on the issue yet. The development comes a day after the US president and Pompeo returned from Helsinki, where the first one-on-one meeting between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin took place. The talks were dedicated to a number of pressing issues, including the alleged Russian meddling in the US presidential vote, Syria, gas supplies to Europe, the Iranian nuclear deal. While the presidents hailed the summit as successful and productive, the joint press conference of the heads of state sparked criticism among many current and former US officials. Particularly, ex-CIA chief Brennan lashed out at Trump, calling his performance "treasonous," while Senator Lindsey Graham slammed the speech as a "missed opportunity" to hold Russia accountable for the alleged meddling in the 2016 election.
Until Tuesday, the two officials could have started a war without additional authorization. Israeli members of Parliament have revised earlier legislation that allowed the prime minister and minister of defense to make a decision together to start a war, according to the press service of the Knesset, Israel's parliamentary body. The majority of the MPs have reportedly voted in favor of a new law that delegates that war power to the Security Cabinet - a forum of key government officials. "It is appropriate that a decision of the Ministerial Committee regarding starting a war or taking significant military action that may at a high level of certainty lead to war be adopted by as wide a panel as possible," the latest amendment says.
It looks like the 2018 noctilucent cloud season is drawing to a close, writes Stuart Atkison. The season runs from the beginning of June through to the end of July, but after a flurry of activity, when we saw noctilucent clouds shining and glowing blue in the northern sky for almost ten nights in a row, there have been no major displays for the past week. Although it's possible we may see more displays - and we still haven't had a jaw-droppingly spectacular 'storm' yet - 2018 might be past its best. If it is, we can't complain; I've seen and photographed more NLC displays in the past six weeks than in the last three years. But we'll see what happens. Keep an eye on the northern sky on any and every clear night over what's left of July, just in case the season decides to go out with a bang.
Did Donald Trump secretly surrender America to Vladimir Putin in Helsinki? Suspicious Democrats want to know the truth by bringing the State Department interpreter to testify before Congress. The first direct Trump-Putin talks on Monday were savaged by the critics. The US president was branded a "traitor" and "Putin's poodle," with political opponents and some members of his own party accusing him of "siding with the enemy." Trump predictably took a lot of flak for the statements he made during the press conference after the talks ended. But what did he and Putin actually discuss at their two-hour meeting? Some Democrats are keen to find out, and suggest his interpreter should clear things up. The idea was initially voiced by Congressman Joe Kennedy III. "Trump's translator should come before Congress and testify as to what was said privately immediately," he tweeted shortly after the president parted ways with Putin in Helsinki. The call to subpoena the interpreter was picked up by Senator Jeanne Shaheen, who said the State Department official will "uncover" what Putin and Trump discussed privately and help determine what the US president "shared with or promised Putin on our behalf."
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has hailed Israel's relations with the US and Russia after Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin said that the Jewish state's security concerns were discussed during their summit in Helsinki. The prime minister's office released a statement applauding both nations shortly after Putin and Trump concluded their meeting on Monday. "Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu welcomes the deep commitment of the United States and President Trump to Israel's security, as expressed in the meeting between President Trump and President Putin. The friendship between Israel and the US has never been stronger," the statement said, adding that Netanyahu "also greatly appreciates the security coordination between Israel and Russia and President Putin's clear position on the need to implement the 1974 separation agreements between Israel and Syria." The Russian president told reporters during a joint press conference that his US counterpart had raised the issue of Israel's security during their talks. Trump added that both leaders had consulted with Netanyahu regarding "the safety of Israel" before heading into the summit. However, Trump dodged a question asking about specific agreements between the US and Russia regarding Israel's security.
Shifting jetstreams seem to be causing new climate patterns to form, pronounced effects are being seen in Greenland where July snows and incredibly late freezes have left migrating and nesting birds no open ground. The usual migratory stop over is covered in snow. Add to this, 60% losses of blueberries in Nova Scotia, 45% price increases in Balsamic Vinegar due to European grape losses and you can see why hail nets are the new norm for crops and our world is woefully unprepared for these changes.

The fallout from the Helsinki Summit between US President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin has never seemed so dire. Where before the summit Trump had support from many GOP members and even a good proportion of the anchors and reports at Fox and other conservative-leaning news outlets, the last twenty-four hours saw a radical change. Even the supportive Fox News website is full of criticism that is almost identical to the cries of "Treason!" given by former CIA director and now CNN-hack James Clapper. Very little objective analysis is featured on this network that prides itself on fair and balanced reporting. The outrage escalated to such a pitch that Mr. Trump actually caved slightly, by making a carefully worded statement that he "misspoke" in Helsinki about the likelihood of Russia committing election meddling. It takes a slightly careful and fully heard listening to his statement to realize that he really isn't giving up his position, but just stating it differently. However, the optics of being "broken" by the opposition raise for some the spectre of the great power of the American Intelligence community and their ability to make or destroy anyone they wish.
Theresa May cowed fellow Tories into backing a vote on her post-Brexit customs plan as she told them they would otherwise face a general election, which could ultimately catapult Jeremy Corbyn into Number 10, the Times reports. In one of her most challenging days as a PM, the Tory leader on Thursday night just narrowly managed to scrape through a crunch parliamentary vote on her customs plan - which would see the UK leaving the EU customs union. An amendment by 12 Tory MPs which would have kept Britain within the union was defeated by 307-301 thanks to four Labour Brexiteers who sided with the government. According to a source cited by the Times, Tory Deputy Chief Whip Chris Pincher told rebel MPs they would be responsible for a vote of no confidence if May's plan was shot down. Under the Fixed-term Parliaments Act, two votes of no confidence in two weeks can trigger a general election.
The state of Israel has given Hamas until Friday to stop its flaming kite attacks on Israeli territory. The report comes as Israel's Parliament has stripped the prime minister of the right to declare war. Israeli leadership has reportedly instructed the country's military forces to prepare to invade the Gaza Strip if the flaming kite attacks don't cease by this week, according to a Channel 10 news report cited by The Times of Israel. According to the report, Israel has given Hamas until Friday to stop its flaming kite and balloon attacks; if Hamas fails to comply with the demand, Israel might decide it has no choice but to start a large-scale military operation.

Do you remember the first time you noticed those long puffy clouds emanating from jets that didnt just evaporate? You saw them spread out, dissipating a cloudy mist that blocked the sunshine. Maybe a friend, or an online source informed you that those were chemtrails, containing aerosol toxins that could be turned on or off at will.
According to Global Research, since the 1940s, the American population have been guinea pigs for a variety of biological and chemical concoctions courtesy of the U.S. military. These chemtrails are just the latest in a long line of assaults. Whats inside this spray? It varies, and its not good for us, nor the hydrological processes of the planet. Independent testing has confirmed a boatload of nano particle toxic chemicals inside chemtrail sprays, including aluminum, barium, yellow fungal mycotoxins, cadmium, polymer fibers, dessicated blood, mold spores and much more. We are under a poisonous attack under the guise of protecting the earth from over heating. Official denials have been consistent and those who speak out against these practices have been ridiculed. But, according to The Free Thought Project, theres been a chemtrail confession by none other than John A. Brennan, the director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).
In late June, 2016, the CIA chief spoke about instability and transnational threats at a meeting of the Council on Foreign Relations in Washington D.C. Much like those scientists that depend on the lies about genetic engineering to keep their funding dollars coming, it appears that John A. Brennan has been talking to scientists that depend on the myth of man made global warming to keep their boat afloat. When the head of the CIA says that stratospheric aerosol injection programs (SAI) could limit global temperatures but SAI alone would not remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere, it sounds like hes working for the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). By the way, that EPA Clean Power Plan is all about reducing carbon that deadly greenhouse gas and its being challenged in the courts by 24 states. Think about this. Co2 is called a greenhouse gas because greenhouses use Co2 to make plants grow bigger and more robust! Since we exhale Co2 to feed the trees, is our breath next to be taxed?
US President Donald Trump has said that he discussed the Middle East conflicts with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki and said he hoped that at some point Iran would call him and say "let's make a deal". Speaking from the White House a day after meeting with Putin in Helsinki, Trump said that US-Russia relations have never been in a worse place, but that relations had "gotten substantially better" since meeting the Russian leader and could improve more in the future. Trump said he and Putin discussed several Middle East subjects, "starting with the civil war in Syria and the need for humanitarian aid." Syria was discussed in the context of "long-term security of Israel," the US president added. "We also spoke of Iran and the need to halt the nuclear ambitions and destabilizing activities taking place in Iran," he said, pointing out that recent US rejection of the 2015 nuclear deal has "had a major impact on Iran. It's substantially weakened Iran." Trump said he was hoping that Tehran "will call us and we'll maybe make a new deal."
Special counsel Robert Mueller's team is asking a federal judge to grant immunity to five witnesses who may be called to testify at the upcoming trial of Paul Manafort, the former Trump campaign chairman, on charges of tax evasion and bank fraud. Mueller's prosecutors did not identify the potential witnesses publicly, but said they had indicated they would invoke their Fifth Amendment rights unless they were given immunity. "The five individuals identified in the motions at issue are third parties who have not been charged in this matter, and who have not been identified publicly with the case," prosecutors wrote. "Disclosing the motions would reveal those individuals' involvement in the investigation and the trial, thereby creating the risk of their undue harassment. Such concern potentially would be heightened by the additional revelation that they have invoked their privilege against self-incrimination and may be granted immunity from the use against them of any compelled testimony." That description seems to fit the profiles of John Podesta and brother Tony, two of the patron saints in the Democratic party who have been linked to the Manafort case yet never charged. Uncanny. Wouldn't it be just like Mueller - and his team of partisan Democratic lawyers - to make sure they couldn't be prosecuted? Absolutely.
William Browder, founder of UK-based Hermitage Capital Management investment fund, is wanted in Russia for various offenses, including tax evasion, since 2013. The Office of Russian Attorney General is poised to send an official request to the United States' authorities to question a number of US officials and intelligence agents, including the former US ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul, as part of a criminal case against Hermitage Capital Management CEO William Browder. "As part of the investigation of one of the criminal cases against William Browder and his criminal group, we're ready to send another request to the US authorities to grant us permission to question these very employees of the US intelligence agencies, as well as a number of other US government officials and businessmen, in order to charge them for the crimes committed by Browder," Alexander Kurennoy, spokesman for the Russia's Office of Prosecutor General, said. According to him, the list of people sought by Moscow for questioning includes "employees of the US National Security Agency - Todd Hyman, who signed under an oath a lawsuit filed in the US court on behalf of Browder, Svetlana Engert, who took from Russia the stolen materials from the criminal case, Alexander Shvartsman, who was Browder's handler while he was in the US."

Russia is continuing to diversify state reserves away from US debt. The latest data from the US Treasury shows that Russia's share hit an 11-year minimum and totaled only $14.9 billion. The share of US sovereign debt bonds in Russia's portfolio has been reduced dramatically in recent months. Russia held $96.1 billion in US Treasuries in March before selling half its holdings in April, dropping to 22nd place among major foreign holders of American treasury securities at $48.7 billion. In 2010, Russia was among the top 10 holders of US Treasuries at $176.3 billion. With its holdings falling to $14.9 billion in May, the country is now below the $30 billion threshold for inclusion on the Treasury Department's monthly report of major holders. On Tuesday, the Treasury released a list of 33 countries which includes the biggest holder China to the smallest Chile. Russia is no longer on the list.
A little league team's post-championship game photo shoot was interrupted by a dust devil that swept onto the baseball diamond. Heather Bunting, who captured video of the whirlwind, said her 10-year-old son, Adin, and his team were posing for pictures in Oak Grove when they were upstaged by the weather. "We had just gotten done taking pictures of the boys with their parents and trophies, and all of a sudden, my son said, 'coach, look over there!'" Bunting told WDAF-TV.
There has been a surge in the number of Muslim-Americans launching their bids for national and statewide offices, analysts say, crediting the Trump administration's policies with sparking the moment. The primary season ahead of the November midterm elections is in full swing, and it has already broken some records. AP reported, citing Jetpac, a non-profit company assisting Muslim-American candidates, that 90 Muslim-Americans initially stood for statewide and nationwide offices in this year's elections. The number represents a record high, never seen after the 9/11 terrorist attacks eroded the trust of Americans in their fellow citizens of Islamic faith. Not all of them have crossed the first threshold on the way to become elected officials. Only some 50 are still standing in their respective races after primaries. In some states, like Michigan, primaries are yet to take place and may see the number of Muslim-American candidates plummeting further. Still, 50 is a huge increase from about a dozen Muslim-Americans that ran for office in 2016, the report notes. If they all succeed, Congress may receive up to nine new Muslim members.
Noctilucent clouds, which can only be seen at night when lit up by the setting sun for a few weeks each year, were caught on camera by photographer Tom Duffin, 48. Mr Duffin had to stay up until 1am to get the perfect shot of the uniquely positioned clouds, which form five times higher than normal cloud level - 50 miles above ground level. The Scottish photographer set up shop in both urban and rural locations to make sure he got the perfect shots - gazing out on Arthur's Seat in Edinburgh and looking out on the Firth of Forth estuary. Mr Duffin said: "The noctilucent clouds only appear during the two weeks either side of the longest day of the year, and even then only every four to five days.
If we were to host a system-wide beauty contest among the planets and accepted natural satellites as a valid skill, Jupiter would have a pretty unfair advantage. Nothing against Earth's beautiful Luna, but according to The Verge the number of confirmed moons around Jupiter is now up to 79, thanks to ten - or 12, depending on who's counting and how - recent confirmations by the International Astronomical Union. The moons were first discovered along with two others early in 2017 by astronomers at Carnegie Institute for Science who were looking for objects beyond Pluto. The moons are small compared to our own and compared to others that orbit Jupiter, with diameters ranging between less than a mile and two miles wide. According to the data, the 12 Jovian moons are divided into two main groups. There are two moons close to the planet that are spinning in the same direction. Further out, there are nine moons that are spinning in the opposite direction. Near those nine is one moon that likes to move to the beat of its own and, like the two closer to Jupiter, has a rotation that mimics its host planet.

A pastor has claimed to have carried out the ritual murders of more than 600 children handed to him as sacrifices by devil-worshipping doctors and nurses in Ghana.
The unnamed man wore a mask to disguise his identity as he made the shocking claims in a bizarre video, telling a television interviewer he had spent 17 years living with Satan.
In his confession, he said he had killed 675 people who were mostly children given to him by members of an occult group in the medical profession.
Local reports, however, make no mention of any police investigation into alleged ritual murders and does not say when or where they are said to have taken place.
The man, believed to be in his 30s, went on to say that he was born with dark spirits and once had more than 650 demonic spirits at his disposal some of which he named.
He said he had needed to make the sacrifices in order to sustain his power but has since left the Satanic kingdom, according to reports in the country.

In a fresh tweet President Donald Trump has said some people would rather "go to war" than see him getting along with Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin. He added that the "haters" merely want "a boxing match." Starting the morning with a fresh post, Trump gave credit to his press conference following a landmark gathering with Putin in Finland on Monday. "So many people at the higher ends of intelligence loved my press conference performance in Helsinki," he said. Trump then gave his take on the negotiations with Putin, and the apparent "haters," who he suggested suffered from "Trump Derangement Syndrome!"

Political activist and writer Sam Husseini, who was ousted from a joint media conference by Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump, accuses the media of lying about his goal at the event. He had a question about Israel's nuclear arsenal. Husseini, a contributor to The Nation who also wrote for a number of major media outlets as well as the media watchdog Fairness and Accuracy In Reporting (FAIR), was evicted from a media conference held by the two presidents on Tuesday in Helsinki. The news agency Associated Press (AP) quoted him as saying that he had a question "on Syria's nuclear policy" and the nuclear arsenals of the United States and Russia. Husseini says AP misquoted him and that he wanted to hear Putin's and Trump's opinion on Israel's clandestine nuclear arsenal, the existence of which the Jewish state neither acknowledges nor denies. In further tweets Husseini called the AP story by Jari Tanner a "piece of crap" that has spread to other media outlets. He added his ousting from the event was falsely attributed by many to Russian officials, while in fact the decision was made by Finnish security. The statement even made it to his Wikipedia page.
For those who do not know, narcissists are people who are overly self-involved. They dont care what they end up doing to others and when in a relationship with one, you will end up highly manipulated and very unhappy.
Narcissists love to break people down and tear them apart. They use other people to their own advantage and if they cannot gain something from them they will cut ties. They always build some of the most toxic relationships and while most of the people who end up being involved with them dont realize it until they are too close they do not deserve any of the things they are forced to go through in the long run.
Below I am going to go over some of the things narcissists will without a doubt always do within their relationships. If you have ever been with a narcissist you know these things to be true. These are things you should never tolerate.
Narcissists dont really love most of the people they surround themselves with. They surround themselves with people they can benefit from. The emotions they pretend to feel are usually not there on any level.
Narcissists trap their partners in. They cut them off from the people that care about them so that there is nowhere for them to go. While this is a bit intense when you think about it, it happens in a slow manner and there is a lot to it.
Narcissists will constantly tear down their significant others and well, everyone else. They love to make everyone feel inferior to them. If you are doing well, they will pick you apart.
Narcissists will gain your trust and break it time and time again. They only do what they should be doing when there is something for them to gain. You cannot count on them when you truly need them.
Narcissists dont treat anyone the way that they should be treated. They are rude and really undervalue everyone. Their partners are there for them in all ways but they are never there for their partners.
Narcissists dont like to talk about anything but themselves. When someone accomplishes something they will bring up something they did that was more of an accomplishment. This is just how they are.
Narcissists dont feel bad when they make you feel bad. When you are down in the dumps they are still ready to upset you...
Elon Musk and other tech leaders have pledged never to build killer robots, possibly halting the chances of a future a Skynet-type disaster. This is the first time AI bigwigs have pledged not to develop lethal autonomous weapons. Musk, the three co-founders of Google's AI subsidiary DeepMind, Skype founder Jaan Tallinn, and other giants of the tech industry signed the pledge, published Wednesday at the 2018 International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence in Stockholm. The agreement was coordinated by the Future of Life Institute (FLI), a Boston-based organization that supports research and initiatives to safeguard life, particularly the risk faced by advanced artificial intelligence. The letter warns that, with AI "poised to play an increasing role in military systems," citizens and lawmakers urgently need to "distinguish between acceptable and unacceptable uses of AI."
Old souls are some of the best people to have around, but when it comes to finding love, they seem to struggle a lot. While you might be attracted to them, if you arent on their level things most likely just wont work out.
Below I am going to go over some of the more prominent reasons why old souls struggle in love. While some of these might be easy to deal with others can be quite the challenge. That being said, love for the old soul is nowhere near a lost cause. They can find someone to be with if they truly want to, while it might take a little longer their love is well worth the wait.
Being in love with an old soul is something a lot of people in this world are not able to handle. Old souls love intensely and they dont hold back. This is just not for everyone. Oftentimes the old soul will think he or she has found love only to be abandoned in the end.
Old souls are usually healing from wounds of the past. Many of them come with baggage that not everyone is willing to carry. This is just something you have to learn to deal with.
Old souls are not going to settle in love. They know what they want and they are trying to find it. If you arent it, there is no convincing them otherwise.
A lot of the old souls in this day and age are afraid of love. They are afraid of opening up on that level and allowing someone to see their vulnerable side. This is something that we as humans tend to do too often and end up hurt too severely over.
Old souls do not like playing the dating game. They want to find someone they mesh with and go from there. They dont want to have to download an app or get dolled up and find someone at the club. Those things just arent interesting to them.
Old souls prefer to sit at home, they do not like to go clubbing or waste their time being surrounded by people whose names they will never know. That just isnt their cup of tea.
Old souls dont like to have to heal other people but they tend to attract those who are in need of serious healing. This leaves them falling through the cracks in the world of love. When someone needs healing they tend to move on once the healing has been done.
Old souls arent going to waste their time getting to know everyone who shows them some kind of attention. If you dont perk their interest right off the bat chances are youre going to get lost in the sauce. That is just how things go.
For a third day, San Miguel County Search and Rescue, Sheriff's deputies and a cadre of citizen volunteers combed the wilderness area around and on Iron Mountain, where Tim Cannon had reportedly spent Sunday hiking. On Wednesday, a private K-9 search and rescue unit from Dolores joined the search party. As of press time Wednesday afternoon, there was still no sign of the missing man. Cannon, 55, left his home early Sunday morning, telling his wife, Amy, he would be hiking up Iron Mountain. When he failed to return, Amy's pre-dawn call to 911 on Monday kicked off what has become and extended search for the longtime local. Considered an experienced hiker, Cannon is assumed to have appropriate gear for a day hike, and knowledge of his surroundings. His car was found parked at the Deep Creek Road and Last Dollar Road intersection.
The Syrian Democratic Forces' (SDF) plans for talks with the government come on the heels of the Helsinki summit meeting between Presidents Putin and Trump, where the two men focused extensively on the Syrian conflict and ways to resolve the country's ongoing humanitarian crisis. The political arm of the SDF, a Kurdish-dominated militia group which controls much of northern and eastern Syria, is working to create a negotiating team for possible talks with the Assad government, key Syrian Democratic Council figure Hekmat Habib has told AFP. "One of the meeting's aims is to create a platform to negotiate with the Syrian regime, "Habib said. "This platform will represent all areas in the autonomous administration and all areas held by the SDF," he added, without providing more details. Members of the Syrian Democratic Council, the SDF's political arm, met in the northern Syrian town of Tabqa on Monday for discussions on a number of issues, including the possibility of negotiations with Damascus.
US President Donald Trump has said Russia is not targeting the US and reiterated that nobody has been as tough on Moscow as he has. Speaking following a Wednesday cabinet meeting, Trump shook his head and said "no" when asked by a reporter if Russia was still targeting the US. "There's been no president ever as tough as I have been on Russia," he said adding that Putin "knows it better than the media."
Forget Vladimir Putin and Russian hackers - according to Fox News host Tucker Carlson Mexico interferes more successfully in American elections, by "packing" the US electorate with its citizens. "I don't think Russia is our close friend or anything like that," Carlson said, discussing President Donald Trump's summit with Putin on Fox Monday. "Of course they try to interfere in our affairs. They have for a long time. Many countries do. Some more successfully than Russia, like Mexico, which is routinely interfering in our elections by packing our electorate." Hispanic immigrants traditionally vote Democrat, a party seen as softer on border control and more generous to immigrants. Republicans, including several officials within the Trump administration, have repeatedly warned that illegal immigrants often vote in US elections.
Its a battle that has scared and horrified people across the continent. Baby powder, a product that has been seen as a staple among parents for decades, has now been accused of contributing to the development of ovarian cancer.
While some scientists are still unsure of the truth behind the claim, a jury in Missouri has ruled in the favor of the victims to a tune of $4.7 billion.
The ingredient in question is talcum powder, a key ingredient in the Johnson & Johnson formula of baby powder. Talcum powder is made from the mineral talc, which has been found effective in absorbing moisture from the body keeping skin dry and safe from irritation. However, talc itself has been found, in some cases, to contain asbestos. Not only does this put the talc miners at risk, when used regularly in the home, some experts report that it increases the risk of cancer among babies and caregivers.
The topic has been highly controversial as studies are conflicting and inconclusive, failing to definitively prove or disprove the connection. Furthermore, lawsuits today are dependant upon a memory having used the product years ago. Despite the lack of irrefutable evidence, the company is reportedly battling 9000 similar cases right now with women across the country pointing to their baby powder as the cause of their ovarian cancer.
Following last weeks $4.7 billion judgment, CEO and chairman Alex Gorsky stated, As you know our baby powder is a trusted product that we have sold to families for over 100 years, and Johnson & Johnson is deeply disappointed in this verdict. We remain confident that our products do not contain asbestos and do not cause ovarian cancer. We intend to pursue all available appellate remedies.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) claims to have conducted significant research into the potential connection, according to an FDA spokeswoman. She explained, After careful review and consideration of the information provided in the Citizen Petitions submitted in 1998 and 2008, and the review of additional scientific information, the FDA concluded in 2014 that it did not find conclusive evidence of a causal association between talc use in the perineal area and ovarian cancer. Recently the FDAs Office of Womens Health awarded a research grant for studies focused on better understanding and investigating this potential risk.
While scientists and resear...
Suspended MP John Woodcock, a long-time critic of leader Jeremy Corbyn has resigned from the Labour party, citing dissatisfaction with the handling of a sexual harassment case brought against him by a female staffer. Woodcock, the MP for Barrow and Furness, told the Labour leader of his decision on Wednesday, claiming in his letter that the investigation "process has been manipulated for factional purposes." In his letter he also states that Corbyn would be a "clear risk to UK national security as prime minister," if Labour gained power and that "anti-Semitism is being tolerated" - insisting the party "has been taken over at nearly every level by the hard left.
Facebook and Twitter recently released new advertisement transparency tools after receiving months of intense scrutiny and heated criticism, particularly Facebook, for their role in enabling Russian-linked organizations to use deceptive ads to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election.
For all advertisements, political or not, Facebook released a new tab called Info and Ads on every Facebook pages account that allows any of its 2 billion users to see all of the ads that an account is currently running across Facebook, Messenger and Instagram.
Regarding political and issue ads, Facebook created a new database where one can search for political ads by issue, candidate name, political party, etc. You can now see who paid for an ad, how many impressions it has received, how much the group paid for that ad, and a percentage breakdown of the gender, age and location (state by state) of the people who viewed the ad.
Any advertiser that wants to run political ads must now go through Facebooks authorization process that requires them to reveal their identity and location, and advertisers will only have a weeks grace period before those unauthorized will have their ads paused. Facebook plans to mo...

A US author who promised to write a book about her grandfather, a Lithuanian national hero, is now campaigning for his role in slaughtering Jews and collaborating with the Nazis to be recognized. Jonas Noreika is honored in modern Lithuania as a hero, a resistance fighter who fought both Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia and was persecuted by each side. There is a plaque in his memory on one of the buildings in the capital Vilnius, where his name is displayed next to his nom-de-guerre - Generolas Vtra, or General Storm. Silvia Foti is a US fiction writer and maternal granddaughter of Noreika. On her mother's deathbed she promised her that she would finish a book about her grandfather, a patriot and a hero, as he was described in family lore. She went to Lithuania to learn more about his heroic deeds, but was shocked to discover a darker aspect to the family history.
New York, July 18, 2018--The Committee to Protect Journalists today condemned the killing of reporter Mustafa Salamah in Syria and urged all parties in the country's ongoing conflict to allow journalists to work freely and safely.

Commenting on the arrest of Maria Butina on charges that she was an agent of the Russian government, the Russian ambassador to the US accused American intelligence agencies of "hunting" Russians abroad. Speaking to Sputnik, political commentator Joe Quinn explained why Butina's alleged activities may have touched a nerve among the US deep state. Transcript Sputnik: Maria Butina's lawyer has called the charges against her a misuse of law. How justified are the charges, in your view? Joe Quinn: Butina is effectively a lobbyist for her 'right to bear arms' organization in Russia, and also for her patron I suppose - Alexander Torshin. And sure, Torshin might have some kind of shady dealings in his history, but they're no worse than many other US and European politicians. The allegations that Butina and Torshin were trying to network in the US are probably true. They may have also have had some small or ineffective attempts to establish contacts between Team Trump and Russia. But that's kind of par for the course in politics, in both the US and Russia, not to mention around the world. There's no reason to believe that Butina and Torshin wanted anything other than to have improved relations between the US and Russia - between the then-incoming Trump administration and Russia. For the 'deep state', the forces that run the US behind the scenes, that's a serious crime - trying to establish positive relations between the US and Russia.
From the Muslim Ban to family separations, the U.S. is cruelly restricting refugees from conflicts it helped create.
Giant natural balls in the Franz Josef archipelago that leave scientists flummoxed. The huge stone balls up to two metres in height are found on appropriately-named Champ island above the polar circle. Perfectly spherical they are scattered all over this northern uninhabited outpost. We reveal the latest pictures of this remarkable sight as the final of the FIFA World Cup 2018 is played 2,842 kilometres to the south in Russian capital Moscow.
SANAA, YEMEN A source inside of Yemens Air Force told MintPress that an unmanned long-range drone, dubbed the Samad 2, targeted an Aramco oil refinery in Saudi Arabias capital city of Riyadh, located over 1000 km (621 miles) away from Yemens capital, Sanaa.
The source, speaking on condition of anonymity, told MintPress that the drone successfully bombed the Aramco refinery and then returned to its base in Yemen.
Saudi Aramco confirmed that there was a fire in one of their storage containers, saying in a statement:
Saudi Aramco and Civil Defense firefighters managed to control a limited fire that took place this evening in one of the reservoirs at the Riyadh refinery the cause of the accident is under investigation.
In an update on its official Twitter account, Aramco later claimed the fire stemmed from an operational incident.
A Yemeni military source told MintPress that the attack was in retaliation for the Saudi-led coalitions ongoing siege of the Yemeni people, as well as for its attacks on the strategic port city of Hodeida, which is the lifeline for the majority of Yemens population.
Speaking to local media, Yemens Army Spokesman General Sharaf Ghaleb Luqman promised more surprises in coming days, adding, what the Air Force has achieved is a new deterrent phase.
Yemens Air Force revealed to MintPress that the long-range Sammad 2 drone was named after Yemens late President Saleh Ali al-Sammad, who was assassinated in a Saudi-led coalition airstrike in Hodeida.
While Yemens Air Force has used drones to carry out attacks on Saudi and UAE fighters in the past including a recent strike on coalition bases in Al-labinat in Al-Jawf east of Sana`a the drone strike in Riyadh is the first of its kind as it struck deep in Saudi territory and marks a new milestone for the Yemen...
Over a half of Russian women under 35 claim they would have romantic relations with a foreigner but almost 70 percent of them name "the ability to leave Russia" as the most attractive part of such affairs, a new poll has found. 57 percent of respondents said they are currently ready for an affair with a foreigner. The proportion is even higher for the age group between 18 and 23 years - 78 percent, according to the poll by the Zoom marketing agency after World Cup 2018. 12 percent of the poll participants told researchers that they had already had romantic relations with foreign citizens and most of the members of this group, 58 percent, added that the affairs started during the 2018 World Cup. When asked what was the most attractive trait of foreigners as partners, 67 percent of young women named the opportunity to marry a foreign citizen and leave Russia. 26 percent said they were attracted to foreigners' appearances and general openness, while seven percent said that they were driven primarily by search for an exotic experience.
Israel's parliament has passed a law giving the education minister sweeping powers to ban any organizations critical of the Israeli state or military from entering schools. The law, passed by the Knesset Tuesday, has been slammed by activists who argue it is a blow to democracy and free speech and serves to further delegitimize NGOs. Under the legislation, the education minister and head of the religious-nationalist Jewish Home party, Naftali Bennett, can ban groups who "actively promote legal or international political actions to be taken outside Israel against soldiers of the Israel Defence Forces... or against the state of Israel," from accessing schools and speaking to students. The law, dubbed the 'Breaking the Silence' law, is perceived to target the Israeli non-profit whistleblowing organization of the same name. The left-wing group publishes testimony from Israeli veterans about the military's abuses against Palestinians.
Whether Democrats realize it or not, the names being tossed as potential 2020 challengers to President Trump are weak. It's milquetoast. All far too left for the American voter, and all with rigid regional appeal. Who knows who Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) is outside of New Jersey? The same could be said for Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY). Sen. Elizabeth Warren's (D-MA) doesn't resonate outside of the Boston suburbs. And Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), well, she's working hard to boost her profile, but she's running aground with the Bernie crowd. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) could run again, but his age - and the fact that the DNC will only allow Democrats to run for their nomination, could put Feel The Bern 2.0 in limbo. So, what else can Democrats do, but accept the third presidential run of Hillary Rodham Clinton. Why is she still around? Why doesn't she shut up? Can we move on? Nope. There are some rumblings that the former first lady and two-time presidential loser could be staging another go for the White House. Michael Goodwin had an op-ed that outlined the case, along with the many eye rolls from Democrats had when he mentioned the idea of a rematch (via NY Post):
People across the United States and around the world have been rightly outraged by U.S. federal agencies' detention of migrants and separation of their families at the U.S.-Mexico border. Shortly after, the Supreme Court's ruled to uphold the Trump administration's racist travel ban on several Muslim-majority countries, reviving another fierce reaction to the administration's policy toward immigrants, travelers and asylum seekers. In middle school, children in the United States learn that [...]
The latest incarnation of this 11-year-old staple of serious smartphones is up to twice as likely to survive a drop.
Butterfingers rejoice: The next smartphone you buy might have a screen thats meaningfully more likely to survive a tumble without shattering. Corning, whose Gorilla Glass has shipped on more than 6 billion devices since its 2007 introduction, held an event at its Silicon Valley office this morning to announce Gorilla Glass 6. The company says the material is twice as robust as 2016s Gorilla Glass 5, and able to withstand 15 drops from one meter, or around three feet, on average. Its due to arrive on new phones by the end of the year.
Three years ago on 26 June, a 23-year-old Tunisian armed with a machine gun mowed down 38 tourists at a beach hotel in the resort of Port El Kantaoui. Thirty British tourists were among the dead in the worst attack on Britons since the July 2005 London bombings and Tunisia's deadliest attack ever. The atrocity was perpetrated by an adherent of the Islamic State (IS) group, which claimed responsibility. But, in a broader context, it is another instance of terrorism arising partly from UK foreign policies for which British governments remain unaccountable. 'Two guys from England' The murderer, Seifeddine Rezgui, an engineering student, had been trained in neighbouring Libya, reportedly visiting there several times in late 2014 and early 2015. Training was conducted by both IS and Ansar al-Sharia, an al-Qaeda-linked Tunisian terrorist group in camps near the Libyan city of Sabratha, 60 miles over the border from Tunisia. Rezgui is said to have possessed only 120 bullets for his attack, suggesting he had become an expert shooter from his training at these camps.

US special forces have already deployed to 133 nations in the first half of 2018, signaling a sharp increase in the Pentagon's shadowy operations when compared to previous years, according to a new report. America's Special Operations forces (SOF) are stationed all around the world, where they participate in a wide range of missions, including special reconnaissance, unconventional warfare, counterterrorism, hostage rescue, as well as training and advising foreign troops. But special forces soldiers are also regularly involved in shadowy combat operations that receive little to no oversight. Shrouded in secrecy, these global operations continue to grow in quantity, size and expense - despite the fact that even Congress is often left in the dark, veteran investigative journalist Nick Turse recently revealed.
While most of the time we think about the man cheating in the relationship, women can and do cheat as well. When it comes to dating there are tons of things that can go wrong and those things can be anyones fault, the man is not always the one out whoring around.
If you think your girlfriend might be cheating on you then chances are you will be paying attention to the signs. Below I am going to go over some of those signs. These might not seem like much if you separate them but if she is doing several or all of these things you might need to go ahead and jump ship.
If she is refusing to be intimate with you anymore there has to be a reason why. If you cant talk to one another about that she might be cheating. This is something you have to think long and hard about.
If she is picking fights out of nowhere chances are there is more going on than you realize. While this might be happening for a number of reasons when partnered with some of the other things on this list cheating might be a real problem. Dont cast it off, it could be quite possible.
If she begins hiding her phone or puts a passcode on it out of nowhere there is probably something on it that she doesnt want you to see. This could be messages from someone or even some kind of dating app. While you shouldnt be going through one anothers phones the option should be present if you want it to be.
If she begins going out more and refuses to really tell you where or who with she might be cheating. Dont get me wrong, sometimes she might just want to go out but being able to communicate is important in situations like this. Regardless of how long you have been together, this is always something to look into.
If she is becoming increasingly distant from you then she might be cheating. You are supposed to be growing closer not further apart. There is some kind of problem present.
If she is spending time on her phone and you notice from across the room but the closer you get the less she pays attention to it there could be something on it she again, doesnt want you to see. While she might pretend that you are looking too into things but this isnt always the case. Trust your gut.
A Gallup survey that routinely checks the US pulse on what Americans find to be the most pressing problems impacting their lives and the country found that almost nobody thinks the so-called Russiagate narrative is among the top issues. A June 2018 poll of the most important problems in America - as perceived by the Ken Bones and Joe the Plumbers of the world - found that the "situation with Russia" was the most important problem to so few Americans that pollsters couldn't represent it numerically.

One man named Larry Murphree who spent at least six years in the Air Force was recently forced to sell his home. The reasons why will literally blow you away.
Murphree, an elderly man who was living in a lovely home he had bought in Florida, was clocked for having an unauthorized object on his porch. This unauthorized object was a mere 17-inch American Flag that was standing in a small flower pot. Basically, he was told that if he did not remove it he would be fined 100 dollars every single day until it was gone.
I just lost it.
It just dawned on me there are people that strap on a gun every day to protect me and the people I love. Its a small flag but it stands for a big thank you.
They started fining me up to $1,000 because I wouldnt take the flag down.
Basically, while he had fought the HOA (home owners association) on this they kept nitpicking and finding small things to attack him over until he had no choice but to sell. With fees mounting and a lien having been placed on his home by the association itself his options were few and far. The whole ordeal in itself made him no longer want to be a part of said community anyways.
That being said, he was recently granted a court date (for 2019) as he is suing the HOA for about a million dollars in hopes of recouping his losses and so forth. He was one of the first to buy a home in this small community and even cut the ribbon during an opening ceremony and this is how he ended up being treated. Could you imagine?
Hes probably lost hundreds of thousands of dollars of his retirement money, not to mention the time hell never get back from having to fight this battle.
That being said, in his new home Murphree is free to fly his flag and now has eight including the one in his flowerpot. This legal battle has been going on for at least seven years. What do you think about all of this? Should he have been able to keep his flag as it was? I for...
Its a term that has become a buzzword online as of late, regularly coming up on social media and across the internet. Countless people read the definition of an empath, connecting with some of the signs and indications, however, is there truth to this legend?
Experts in psychology confirm that empathy is, in fact, real, and empaths walk among us.
This isnt to say that every sensitive and emotional person that reads about the signs of an empath and connects with some of the points highlighted is actually empathic. They are around us, but true, authentic empaths arent as common as many would like to believe. These are the individuals who not only express compassion, recognizing pain and suffering in others they actually manifest the feelings, struggles and emotions of those that they encounter feeling their pain firsthand. This includes experiencing their emotions, but also physical pains that are transferred through their energy.
Do you find that when you are in a crowd of people, your energy and emotions begin to shift with no reasonable explanation? Once content and at peace, do you suddenly find yourself angry or sad, but unaware of what may have caused these feelings? These are signs that you may be manifesting the emotions of others in the room, one of the many indications that you can watch for.
Many believe that the people you attract in life are largely people who share similar thoughts, feelings, emotions, and values in life. This isnt necessarily true. You are a healer, blessed with an incredible light and joy in this life. Those that are most often drawn to you dont share this life. Instead, they are the broken individuals that require your help the most.
While some people struggle to put others first, held back by their own selfish desires, you have the opposite problem. Your desire to care for and help everyone that you meet can often leave to great personal sacrifice as you willingly give of yourself without so much as a second thought. You do have to remember, however, that if you give too much you will put yourself in a position where you have nothing left to give. You need to care for yourself as well.

Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump did reach key unwritten deals during their talks in Finland, but there is nothing secretive about what they discussed, Russia's ambassador in Washington, Anatoly Antonov, says. "The meeting was important, intense, constructive and productive. I believe that important verbal agreements were made," Antonov said on Rossiya 1 TV on Wednesday evening. During a foreign ministry briefing earlier the same day, Antonov, who was in Putin's negotiating team, said that no "secret deals" were struck between the two presidents, specifying that negotiations in Helsinki on Monday focused on Syria and Ukraine.

A giant black sarcophagus the likes of which have never been seen has been found deep within the ground in Egypt, and a whole lot of scientists want to open it despite having neither one earthly nor one unearthly idea what might lie waiting possibly maliciously inside. Say it with me now: What! Could! Go! Wrong? [cue applause and intro music]
Todays episode of What The Hell Are They Thinking? comes to you straight from the ancient city of Alexandria in Egypt, one of the cradles of Western civilization as we know it. Earlier this month, construction crews there unearthed the kind of true archaeological mystery which can only be found in Egypt. A massive alabaster head was found in the ground, the identity of which still remains a mystery. Even stranger (and scarier), a massive black sarcophagus was discovered nearby, measuring two meters by three meters, weighing over 30 metric tons, and carved entirely from black marble. Sounds like the perfect way to entomb an immortal evil wizard if you ask me.
But they didnt ask me. Instead, a team of archaeologists and scientists from Egypts money hungry Ministry of Antiquities will crack the menacing-looking thing open despite the entirety of the internet knowing that its a terrible i...

Tehran is bracing for the fallout of renewed US sanctions following President Trump's pullout from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), and has threatened to relaunch its uranium enrichment program if the nuclear agreement breaks down. Iranian Atomic Energy Organization head Ali Akbar Salehi has announced that the factory producing rotors for centrifuges has come online, and will assist with Tehran's plans to increase its uranium enrichment capacity to 190,000 SWUs. Speaking to the Iranian TV channel IRIB on Wednesday, Salehi announced the completion of the rotor plant, which has the capacity to produce about 60 IR-6 centrifuge machines a day, and explained that the factory was built during nuclear talks with world powers, but never started up.
Disgraced Tory MP Andrew Griffiths was handed a position in Theresa May's government despite being investigated following allegations of "inappropriate touching" by a female Tory councillor, it has been reported. Griffiths, who recently resigned from his government role as Small Business Minister after it was revealed he sent more than 2000 explicit messages to a barmaid in his constituency along with her female friend, was under investigation for inappropriate behaviour when May handed him a ministerial position, the Guardian reports.

A pretty mixed day in Asia today with a small improvement for Japan, whilst the China decline continues. Having heard the comments from FED Chair Jerome Powell, markets assumed a hold mentality with volumes reflecting the uncertainty coupled with summer lull. The Nikkei did add +0.5% onto yesterdays numbers, but at the expense of the currency. Most of the core held well during the morning sessions and only drifted late in the day. Both the Shanghai and Hang Seng were up mid afternoon then slipped into the -0.3% close. SENSEX saw a marginal loss similar to China as prices drifted into the close. The INR remains weak rejecting the early move (a two week high) only to settle at the days lows (68.62). The AUD has recovered the 0.74 handle in late trading, probably supported by the strong ASX tone as BHP helped sentiment.
First headlines seen in early European trading was that of Google with an EU antitrust fine of $5bn. However, given the US markets closed strong and Asia hadnt fallen away too sharply, the next thing was the currency. FED Chairman helped support the USD late Tuesday and the Euro, Yen and GBP just followed the pack. Towards the close of Europe, we did see a recovery in this area but only through a lethargic US opening. UK numbers released +0.4% M/M and 2.4% which failed estimates. Sterling suffered as a response and even in late trading remains heavy (-0.5%) on the day. It did manage to hold the 1.30 level, but is testing the buyers as we have not seen these prices since last October. Fridays close will be interesting but still looks heavy.
Even with earnings season upon us, most core indices struggled to show enthusiasm. After an initial wobble prices for the core held steady and even managed a bounce, in thin trade. The NASDAQ was again the heavy candidate which too recovered from early losses. It will be interesting to see where we close Friday as markets are consolidating with the ever strengthening USD. Summer volumes are all around, which makes it difficult to field volume. We remain at lofty levels, which is impressive given the lack of volume.
Japan 0.04%, US 2s closed 2.63% (+1bp), 10s 2.88% (+2bp), 30s 2.99% (+2bp), Bunds 0.34% (-2bp), France 0.62% (-1bp), Italy 2.50% (+3bp), G...

We are looking forward to settling back in at home after a little over a month of travels.
We enjoyed a week in LA at Disclosure Fest where we also had meeting with a number of people and groups discussing working together in big ways.
This includes the plans for a Mass Meditation event in Washington DC on 11/11/2018 during the military parade.
These meetings should also lead to some very exciting announcements that will benefit our entire community and help us come together for our common goal of Full Disclosure.
These announcements will completely displace the volume of upsetting and stressful evets that have popped up over the last week or so.
After the week in LA we then flew out to Maui for 17 days.
Thanks to our close friends Amy and Jamie who live there, we were able to stay with them and have an epic adventure on a shoe string budget.
Maui ended up being the perfect place for an unplanned sabbatical.
I was able to have time to slow down and reflect on the incredible amount of stress, abuse, personal dark alliance attacks, 3 deaths in the family in the last 19 months, my Father in Hospice and not doing well and the incredible weight of the responsibilities laid on my shoulders over the last 3 years were all crushing in on me.
Those are just the things we can make public So MUCH has gone on that we cannot talk about.
Thankfully I had an opportunity to address most of these traumas to some degree and am feeling much better as a result.
Now, it is time to get back to work! These distractions can no longer delay this important mission.
Over the last 3 years, I have also had to deal with a number of individuals that have taken a very unhealthy personal interest in me to a point of having to obtain protective orders for my protection and the protection of my family.
The feeling of having someone strongly pursuing you based on fantasies or delusions is a creepy and sickening feeling that I wouldnt wish on anyone.
As all of you are aware While Stacy and I were in Maui, another public controversy arose with the unauthorized release of some alleged personal information and correspondence that has since gone viral.
Since then I have received a constant and steady stream of emails and messages on Facebook asking me to make a public statement.
The only statement I can make right now is that Legally, I am unable to publicly comment at this time.
What I can say is that I am responding very strongly, privately and in an ethical and legal manner.
I hope to be able to make more of a public statement in the near future.
I understand and appreciate how upset and confused many in the community are right now, rightly so.
It would be wonderful if we could focus on Unity and working together for Full Disclosure until more clarity can be give...

BEIRUT Syrian government forces determined to retake the largest opposition holdout in the countrys southwest unleashed an intense bombing campaign, killing at least a dozen people and wounding over 100 in a densely populated town, activists and rescuers said Wednesday.
The aerial bombardment of the town of Nawa came after talks to cede the town failed on Tuesday, triggering the heavy bombardment.
Separately, some 7,000 civilians were expected to be evacuated from two pro-government villages in northwestern Syria as part of a negotiated deal with insurgents who have besieged them for three years.
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said frenzied overnight bombing in Nawa and the towns surroundings continued into Wednesday, with at least 350 missiles launched. The Observatory said at least 12 people were killed as rescuers struggled to get to the casualties.
Khaled Solh, head of the local Syria Civil Defense known as White Helmets, said they have documented 14 people killed while Nawas only hospital was bombed and rendered non-operational late Tuesday. Only one ambulance was able to get to the town and civilians relied on their cars to bring out at least 150 wounded. He said one of the last orthopedists in the town was killed in the strikes.
The government has stepped up its military offensive on the remaining opposition pockets in the southwestern region, which includes the Daraa and Quneitra provinces that straddle the border with Jordan and the frontier with the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights. In recent days, Syrian forces have turned to the last opposition pockets near the frontier with Israel.
Images from across the frontier in the Israel-occupied Golan Heights showed large plumes of smoke rising over the Nawa area, as the bombing continued Wednesday.
Hundreds of civilians were seen taking cover in shelters along the frontier, apparently seeking safety in the de-militarized zone between the two countries. Israel has occupied the Golan Heights since 1967, and a cease-fire deal was reached in 1974.
In less than a month, Syrian government forces backed by Russian air power have been able to seize control of most of southwestern Daraa province, including the provincial capital of the same name. The city of Daraa was the cradle of the uprising against President Bashar Assad more than seven years ago.
Alongside the military offensive, the government has struck reconciliation deals, essentially a negotiated capitulation in a number of villages that have been in rebel hands for years, to restore government control there.
Talks to hand over Nawa, one of the most densely populated towns in Daraa province, have been ongoing for a couple of days. That has encouraged displaced civilians to return to Nawa, said a local activist who goes by the name Selma Mohammed.
But the talks faltered, triggering the overnig...
Two whistle-blowers at a Louisiana Veterans Affairs hospital say they found widespread corruption and were subjected to uncomfortable retaliation when they brought their concerns forward.
Crystal LeJeune and Harvey Norris are whistle-blowers and former employees of the Alexandria, Louisiana VA Medical Center system.
Each worked at a clinic in Jennings, Louisiana which was part of the Alexandria VA Health Care system; both are speaking out exclusively for the first time to The Daily Caller.
Both say that not only did they find widespread waste, fraud, and abuse primarily in the Home Based Primary Care (HBPC) department but experienced retaliation for speaking out.
LeJeune said in an Office of Special Counsel (OSC) complaint that she has witnessed patient neglect, falsification of Veterans medical records, fraudulent billing, misuse of government vehicles, tampering with government vehicle tracking systems, and deceitful time documentation at the hospital.
As part of her duties, LeJeune said she regularly examined the Veterans Equitable Resource Allocation (VERA) Report.
By examining the report, LeJeune found all sorts of waste.
When I would go into the system, it proved they (HBPC employees) werent actually seeing patients, LeJeune stated.
As one example, she noted that one HBPC nurse visited 11 patients in one morning, something which LeJeune said was impossible for a nurse making house calls.
They were supposed to be seeing the patients every thirty days, LeJeune said, but that wasnt happening. There was (one) who hadnt been seen for more than one hundred thirty days, but there was numerous ones (patients) who hadnt been seen on a regular basis.
A group of HBPC employees also appeared to be using the cars for outside work.
The car log wasnt matching the GPS.
In those instances, the car log would show little or no activity while the GPS showed the car making stops at several homes at addresses without a VA patient.
LeJeune said her problems first started in July 2012 when, as the program support assistant in HBPC, she was ordered to log in all the miles which HBPC employees used with government vehicles.

Charges have been filed in Manhattan federal court against Honduran congressman Midence Oqueli Martinez Turcios and, in a separate indictment, Arnaldo Soto, Carlos Soto, and Miguel Soto. The charges in each indictment include conspiring to import cocaine into the United States and related weapons offenses involving the use and possession of machineguns and destructive devices. The United States is seeking the defendants extraditions from Honduras.
Manhattan U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman said: As alleged, these defendants include a Honduran congressman and a former Honduran mayor. All are charged with conspiring to import cocaine into the U.S. and conspiring to use and carry machineguns and destructive devices in furtherance of cocaine importation. Politically connected defendants in Honduras allegedly working in league with violent drug cartels is a recipe for harm here in the U.S. We are committed to working with the DEA to police and prosecute such conduct.
Special Agent in Charge Raymond P. Donovan said: DEA and our partners continue to expose drug-related corruption across the world, which fuels violence and insurgency while upending the rule of law. These Honduran elected officials and their associates allegedly conspired with the Sinaloa Cartel and flooded American communities with huge amounts of deadly poison. DEA looks forward to their extradition to the United States to face American justice and answer for their many alleged crimes.
As alleged in the Indictments unsealed in federal court:
From at least in or about 2004, up to and including in or about 2014, multiple drug trafficking organizations in Honduras and elsewhere worked together, and with support from Martinez Turcios the Urbina Soto defendants, and others, to receive multi-hundred-kilogram loads of cocaine sent to Honduras via air and maritime routes from, among other places, Venezuela and Colombia. The cocaine shipments were transported westward within Honduras toward the border with Guatemala and eventually imported into the United States, often in coordination with high-ranking members of Mexicos Sinaloa Cartel.
Martinez Turcios is a legislator, referred to as a diputado, in the National Congress of Honduras. Martinez Turcios is the second Honduran congressman to be charged in connection with the DEAs investigation of politically connected drug trafficking in Honduras. In January 2018, Honduran congressman Fredy Renan Najera Montoya was also charged with conspiring to import cocaine into the United States and related firearms offenses
Martinez Turcios was a member of a violent Honduran drug trafficking organization known as the Cachiros. Between in or about 2004 and in or about 2014, Martinez Turcios received a total of over $1 million in bribes and other payments from the leaders of the Cachiros, which he used to, among other things, enrich himself and fund his campaign activities and polit...

George Soros is going to his grave knowing that he was ultimately a massive failure:
In London in the 1950s, Soros was a student of the expatriated Austrian philosopher Karl Popper, who championed the notion of an open society, in which individual liberty, pluralism and free inquiry prevailed. Poppers concept became Soross cause.
It is an embattled cause these days. Under Vladimir Putin, Russia has reverted to autocracy, and Poland and Hungary are moving in the same direction. With the rise of Donald Trump in the United States, where Soros is a major donor to Democratic candidates and progressive groups, and the growing strength of right-wing populist parties in Western Europe, Soross vision of liberal democracy is under threat in its longtime strongholds. Nationalism and tribalism are resurgent, barriers are being raised and borders reinforced and Soros is confronting the possibility that the goal to which he has devoted most of his wealth and the last chapter of his life will end in failure. Not only that: He also finds himself in the unsettling position of being the designated villain of this anti-globalization backlash, his Judaism and career in finance rendering him a made-to-order phantasm for reactionaries worldwide. Im standing for principles whether I win or lose, Soros told me this spring. But, he went on, unfortunately, Im losing too much in too many places right now.
With Putinism and Orbanism on the rise and the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall approaching, there is renewed debate about the import of the events of 1989 and whether Russians, Poles and Hungarians really intended to embrace the full menu of Western liberal values. Francis Fukuyama is among those who have doubts today. Theres now a lot of evidence that a lot of that turn toward liberal democracy in the early days, after the fall of the Berlin Wall, really was driven by a kind of educated, very pro-Western elite, he told me recently. But less-educated people who lived outside large urban areas didnt really buy into liberalism, this idea that you could actually have a multiracial, multiethnic society where all these traditional communal values would have to give way to gay marriage and immigrants and all this stuff. That they definitely did not buy into.
In his annual state-of-the-world speech in Davos this year, Soros said Trump would like to establish a mafia state, but he cant, because the Constitution, other institutions and a vibrant civil society wont allow it. He also characterized Trump as a purely temporary phenomenon that will disappear in 2020, or even sooner, and predicted a Democratic landslide in the 2018 midterm elections. Five months on, he was sticking by those predictions....
The Trump administration will end a longstanding requirement that certain nonprofit organizations disclose the names of large donors to the Internal Revenue Service, a move that will allow some political groups to shield their sources of funding from government scrutiny.
The change, which has long been sought by conservatives and Republicans in Congress, will affect thousands of labor unions, social clubs and political groups as varied as arms of the AARP, the United States Chamber of Commerce, the National Rifle Association and Americans for Prosperity, which is funded partly by the billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch.
Such groups have played an increasingly prominent role in American politics in the wake of the Supreme Courts 2010 ruling in a case brought by the nonprofit group Citizens United, which empowered them to spend unlimited money on campaign ads.
Treasury officials said the reporting change which affects contributions known as dark money because their source is hidden would protect privacy and reduce compliance costs for nonprofits. The I.R.S. could still request donor information from groups in the rare event that it was needed for tax scrutiny.
Americans shouldnt be required to send the I.R.S. information that it doesnt need to effectively enforce our tax laws, and the I.R.S. simply does not need tax returns with donor names and addresses to do its job in this area, Steven Mnuchin, the Treasury secretary, said in a statement on Monday evening.
But critics denounced the measure, saying it would encourage political donations from both domestic and foreign contributors who want to skirt the law or keep their influence secret.
Its a clear signal that the I.R.S. and now the Treasury Department are not interested in any significant oversight of nonprofits, said Marcus S. Owens, a Washingto...

The polar opposite of what was reported in the American media. Which is more accurate?, see for yourself. We think Russian TV reflects the truth better. Full transcript follows below:
The US Democratic Party is determined to take the world to thermo-nuclear war rather than to admit that Hillary Clinton lost the presidential election fair and square. The Democratic Party was totally corrupted by the Clinton Regime, and now it is totally insane. Leaders of the Democratic Party, such as Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, my former co-author in the New York Times, have responded in a non-Democratic way to the first step President Trump has taken to reduce the extremely dangerous tensions with Russia that the Clinton, George W. Bush, and Obama regimes created between the two superpowers. Yes, Russia is a superpower. Russian weapons are so superior to the junk produced by the waste-filled US military/security complex that lives high off the hog on the insouciant American taxpayer that it is questionable if the US is even a second class military power. If the insane neoconservatives, such as Max Boot, William Kristol, and the rest of the neocon scum get their way, the US, the UK, and Europe will be a radioactive ruin for thousands of years. House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi (CA), Minority Leader of the US House of Representatives, declared that out of fear of some undefined retribution from Putin, a dossier on Trump perhaps, the President of the United States sold out the American people to Russia because he wants to make peace: "It begs the question, what does Vladimir Putin, what do the Russians have on Donald Trump-personally, politically and financially that he should behave in such a manner?" The "such a manner" Pelosi is speaking about is making peace instead of war. To be clear, the Democratic Minority Leader of the US House of Representatives has accused Donald Trump of high treason against the United States. There is no outcry against this blatantly false accusation, totally devoid of evidence. The presstitute media instead of protesting this attempt at a coup against the President of the United States, trumpet the accusation as self-evident truth. Trump is a traitor because he wants peace with Russia.

Phoenix, AZ When concerned neighbors called police because they believed dozens of children were being trafficked in their neighborhood, they learned that the children were actually being held in a black site prison operated by defense contractors.
A vacant office building with dark windows in a quiet neighborhood has become a subject of controversy after residents began documenting the dozens of children who were transported to the building in white vans, and then never seen again.
The building is not licensed to hold children or to act as a shelter, and it is owned by MVM Inc., a defense contractor that once provided guards for CIA facilities in Iraq and has made nearly $250 million transporting immigrant children since 2014, according to a report from Reveal from The Center for Investigative Reporting.
The companys website specifically claims that the current services MVM provides consist of transporting undocumented families and unaccompanied children to Department of Health and Human Services designated facilitieswe have not and currently do not operate shelters or any other type of housing for minors.
However, Lianna Dunlap told Reveal that she became suspicious about what was going on at the office building in her neighborhood that is owned by MVM when she noticed new security cameras and extra locks on the exterior last monthand then saw several white vans transporting small children to the building.
Theres been times where I drive by and I just start crying because, you know, its right behind my house. I dont know and I think thats the worst partnot knowing whats actually going on in there and just hoping that theyre OK, Dunlap said.
Neighbors claimed that they saw pallets of water and boxes of food dropped off at the building, but they never saw the children who were escorted inside, and the darkened windows made them concerned that the children were victims of trafficking, and that they were being harmed inside.
Another neighbor, Kristen Brown, told Reveal that as a mother of a 2-year-old son, she was immediately concerned about the lack of space inside the building and the lack of access to sunlight.
My kid has the ability to run around and play, and there are 40 kids in that place that I dont know what youre doing with, Brown said. That, as a mom, it doesnt feel right.
Brown also said she tried to talk to employees to ask them what was going on. She claim...
Haters would rather 'go to war' than see me getting along with Putin - Trump | 18 July 2018 | In a fresh tweet President Donald Trump has said some people would rather "go to war" than see him getting along with Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin. He added that the "haters" merely want "a boxing match." Starting the morning with a new post, Trump gave credit to his press conference following a landmark gathering with Putin in Finland on Monday. The sight of Trump and Putin not attacking each other at the press conference in Helsinki sent mainstream US media into meltdown. Some outlets were angered even by the fact that the summit happened at all.

This is a worrisome turn of events for some of the 130 million Apple customers in China, many of whom fear for the privacy and security of their cloud data.
China is a hugely important market for Apple; the country is seen as an engine for the future sales growth of iPhones and related services. One of those key services is iCloud storage, and the Chinese government informed Apple earlier this year that in order to sell the service in China the user content would have to be hosted by Chinese companies.

There are over a quadrillion tons of diamonds waiting to be found the only problem is that theyre 160km beneath the Earths surface, according to researchers, who used soundwaves to reveal the massive precious stone deposit.
The incredible discovery was made by scientists at MIT, Harvard and the University of California at Berkeley after they analyzed seismic records.
Diamond in many ways is special, Dr. Ulrich Faul, a research scientist at MIT, said. One of its special properties is that the sound velocity in diamond is more than twice as fast as in the dominant mineral in upper mantle rocks, olivine.
The team found that sound was moving much faster than expected within sections of rock known as cratonic roots. According to the study, up to two percent of these roots may be composed of diamond meaning there could be a whopping quadrillion tons (a staggering 15 zeroes) of diamonds scattered below our planets surface.
This shows that diamond is not perhaps this exotic mineral, but on the [geological]scale of things, its relatively common, Faul said
However, the diamonds are buried more than 160km (100 miles) beneath the Earths surface making it unlikely the discovery will spark a diamond rush. The deepest drill ever made was at a depth of 12 kilometers (7.5 miles), in the Kola Superdeep Borehole in Russia. The boring took 20 years to complete, underscoring that we are a long way off from having the technology to tap into the massive diamond deposits below us.
Faul admitted the evidence of the mind-melting subterranean diamond reserves is circumstantial but says it was the only reasonable explanation for the data they had collected.
This article (Quadrillion tons of diamonds located 160km below Earths surface, researchers say) was originally published on RT News and syndicated by The Event Chronicle.
