The Ubiquity of Electrosmog: Groundbreaking study shows shielding EMF improves autoimmune disease Signs of the Times

Novel research reveals that blocking exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF) produces significant symptom changes in 90% of patients with autoimmune disease. No longer can it be ignored that manmade electromagnetic radiation poses innumerable risks to human health Concerns about electromagnetic fields (EMF) are branded pseudoscientific conspiracy theories and relegated to the realm of tin-hat wearing quackery. However, a recent publication in the peer-reviewed journal Immunologic Research entitled "Electrosmog and Autoimmune Disease," sheds new light on the validity of concerns about this so-called electrosmog with which we are constantly inundated. Although we encounter natural microwave electromagnetic radiation in the form of cosmic radiation from outer space, the aurora borealis, and thunderstorms, the vast majority of electrosmog that we encounter is largely manmade (1). These atmospheric phenomena, however, emit electromagnetic radiation at lower radio frequencies and are negligibly weak in comparison to manmade sources, which have increased exponentially due to the emergence of television, cellular phone technologies, and WiFI, all of which utilize microwave frequency bands (1).

High taxes cause mass exits from Democratic states Signs of the Times

One reason Democrats seem so fixated on importing illegal immigrants and allowing their children to stay and become citizens may be the exodus from high-tax and traditionally Democratic states. Anecdotal evidence is usually not helpful in determining trends, but when stories begin to accumulate and sound the same attention must be paid. Two friends of mine, who are longtime California residents, recently decided to move from that highly taxed state to states with lower taxes. As much as they love California, they tell me, they can no longer afford to live there. United Van Lines' National Movers Study has for more than 40 years tracked which states people are moving to and from. This should - and probably has - received attention from Democrats. The Washington Free Beacon has analyzed the data and found people are leaving Illinois, New Jersey (where the new Democratic governor has promised to raise taxes) and New York, among other high-tax states. Sixty-three percent of outbound moves were from Illinois and New Jersey. New York (61 percent), Connecticut (57 percent) and Massachusetts (56 percent) rounded out the top five. It is hardly coincidental that these states are mostly controlled by Democrats. Illinois, with its Republican governor, is the lone exception, though the state remains heavily blue.

Move more: Is walking the new superfood? Signs of the Times

Compelling research shows that the more time you spend sitting, the shorter and less healthy your life will tend to be, thanks to the negative impacts on your cardiovascular and metabolic function. Even the World Health Organization lists inactivity as the fourth biggest killer of adults worldwide, responsible for 9 percent of premature deaths.1 For example, one 2012 meta-analysis2 found those who sat the longest on a daily basis were twice as likely to have diabetes or heart disease, compared to those who sat the least. Importantly, findings reveal that prolonged sitting is an independent risk factor for poor health and early death, meaning these risks apply even if you're fit and maintain a regular workout schedule. For example, one study3found that six hours of uninterrupted sitting effectively counteracted the positive health benefits of a whole hour of exercise.

Thousands in need of emergency relief as extreme cold and heavy snow batter communities in central Atlas regions of Morocco Signs of the Times

Heavy snow and unusual, extreme cold weather in January has cut off thousands from major transport routes in Morocco's High and Middle Atlas regions, raising the risk of food shortages and dangerous living conditions for the affected communities. The combination of heavy snow and temperatures dropping as low as -5 C has caused water supply shortages, power outages, lack of heating and damage to homes. As food supplies dwindle farmers have reported loss of livestock, prompting a surge in food prices. More than 100 volunteers and staff from the Moroccan Red Crescent have been deployed to central mountainous provinces to provide emergency transport and medical assistance as well as to distribute food, blankets and supplies. The Moroccan Red Crescent assistance is part of the Government's response to support 700,000 people affected by the cold wave.

Yet Another Baltimore Officer Indicted For Planting Evidence The Daily Sheeple

planting evidence

A Baltimore Grand Jury has indicted a ninth Baltimore police officer on corruption charges after footage emerged of him planting drugs on a crime scene in July, CNN reported Thursday.

Officer Richard Pinheiro, 29, is one of nine former officers to be indicted on racketeering or evidence tampering charges throughout the past year. The rash of corruption scandals culminated this week with the firing of Police Commissioner Kevin Davis, as well as the resignation of two of his top subordinates. Pinheiro maintains that he did nothing wrong and was merely re-enacting the recovery of drugs for his body camera, CNN reported.

Officer Pinheiro simply tried to document the recovery of evidence with his body-worn camera that he had previously recovered, Pinheiros attorney Michael Davey told the Baltimore Sun. This is just another overreach by the Baltimore States Attorneys Office, and an attempt to prosecute a police officer when theres no evidence to do so.

Supporting Pinheiros claim is the fact that the practice of re-enacting crime scenes was rampant within the BPD before former-Commissioner Davis ordered officers to stop in August. Pinheiro would be the second officer specifically convicted of planting drugs, however, as his former colleague Wayne Earl Jenkins, 37, was indicted in early December. (RELATED: WATCH: Baltimore Officer Plants Heroin On Crime Scene)

The other seven officers were members of the Gun Trace Task Force (GTTF). Former Detective Maurice Ward testified against the group Tuesday, saying the GTTF would routinely carry BB guns in their vehicles just in case they needed to plant one on a crime scene. Ward testified to other shocking acts of corruption by the GTTF as well.

Chechen leader Kadyrov: While US brings war and destruction to Muslim world, Putin supports religious freedom and equality for all Signs of the Times

Ramzan Kadyrov has said that President Vladimir Putin stayed true to his pledge to support Muslims in Russia and around the world, adding that Western policies have only brought war and destruction to Islamic nations. In a new message posted on the Telegram social network, Kadyrov thanked Putin for his support to Chechen Muslims. He wrote that Putin was fulfilling his promise to protect religious freedom and equality for all major confessions in Russia. In addition, Kadyrov said that such policies were further proof that the Russian Federation is a reliable partner for all Muslim nations. "These are not just words, Vladimir Putin has constantly proven that he is fulfilling his promises. While the United States and their allies are bringing wars and destruction to the Muslim world, Russia is consistently defending the interests of the Islamic nations and peoples," the Chechen leader wrote.

SOTT FOCUS: The Feminist Seduction of Western Society Signs of the Times

On January 16th the UK's Channel 4 News uploaded its now-infamous interview between psychologist Jordan Peterson and newscaster Cathy Newman, treating viewers to a morbid yet fascinating display of feminist ideology careening face-first into the brick wall of reality. Scott Adams reckons Newman effectively hallucinated about 12 times as her ideology-warped mind became incapable of processing a word Jordan Peterson was saying. Public response came fast and furious, with people overwhelmingly mortified by Newman's inquisitorial display, shocked by witnessing the 'pleasant' face of feminism transform into Medusa-like destruction, yet glad to see feminism taken apart on a mainstream platform by Peterson's rational and eloquent debating style. Unable to 'win' the debate with Peterson, Newman and her allies in the liberal spectrum nevertheless eked out a 'victory' by casting themselves as victims and Peterson's supporters as "viscous misogynists". To protect their ideological beliefs, the situation was spun into its exact opposite: Newman and her ilk are clearly misandrists bent on victimizing men. 'Security experts' were brought in to add a veneer of truth to the spin. No verification of any actual threat has emerged - not against Newman or Channel 4 anyway, though some were leveled at Peterson and his followers.

Betrayal of the Kurds means the total and abject failure of all US plans for Syria Signs of the Times

The drama which is unfolding in northern Syria is truly an almost ideal case to fully assess how weak and totally dysfunctional the AngloZionist Empire has really become. Let's begin with a quick reminder. The US-Israeli goals in Syria were really very simple. As I have already mentioned in a past article, the initial AngloZionist plan was to overthrow Assad and replace him with the Takfiri crazies (Daesh, al-Qaeda, al-Nusra, ISIS - call them whatever you want). Doing this would achieve the following goals: Bring down a strong secular Arab state along with its political structure, armed forces and security services.Create total chaos and horror in Syria justifying the creation of a "security zone" by Israel not only in the Golan, but further north.Trigger a civil war in Lebanon by unleashing the Takfiri crazies against Hezbollah.Let the Takfiris and Hezbollah bleed each other to death, then create a "security zone", but this time in Lebanon.Prevent the creation of a Shia axis Iran-Iraq-Syria-Lebanon.Breakup Syria along ethnic and religious lines.Create a Kurdistan which could then be used against Turkey, Syria, Iraq and Iran.Make it possible for Israel to become the uncontested power broker in the Middle-East and forces the KSA, Qatar, Oman, Kuwait and all others to have to go to Israel for any gas or oil pipeline project.Gradually isolate, threaten, subvert and eventually attack Iran with a wide regional coalition of forces.Eliminate all center of Shia power in the Middle-East. With the joint Russian-Iranian military intervention, this plan completely collapsed. For a while, the USA tried to break up Syria under various scenarios, but the way the Russian Aerospace forces hammered all the "good terrorists" eventually convinced the AngloZionists that this would not work. The single biggest problem for the Empire is that while it has plenty of firepower in the region (and worldwide), it cannot deploy any "boots on the ground". Being the Empire's boots on the ground was, in fact, the role the AngloZionists had assigned to the Takfiri crazies (aka Daesh/IS/ISIS/al-Qaeda/al-Nusra/etc/), but that plan failed. The only US allies left in the region are Israel and Saudi Arabia. The problem with them is that, just like the USA themselves, these countries do not have ground forces capable of actually deploying inside Syria and taking on not only the Syrian military, but the much more capable Iranian and Hezbollah forces. Murdering civilians is really the only thing the Israelis and Saudis are expert in, at least on the ground (in the skies the Israeli Air Force is a very good one). Enter the Kurds.

I Am American, Jewish, and Banned From Israel for My Activism MintPress News

This month, the Israeli government announced that activists affiliated with 20 organizations, including my organization Codepink, would be banned from entering Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories because of our support for the nonviolent boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement for Palestinian rights.

As a Jew, this causes me tremendous sadness because I have a lifetime attachment to Israel and Palestine. It also deepens my commitment to working for peace and equality for all the peoples of the region.

I first went to Israel 50 years ago, right after the June 1967 war. I was 16 years old and spent the summer living on the kibbutz Ein Gedi, right on the Dead Sea. I loved the kibbutz, where I learned about farming, communal living and socialism (yes, it was a socialist kibbutz at the time). I also learned, however, about the contempt and racism many Jews exhibited towards Palestinians and other Arabs.

I made friends with Arabs who taught me how the Jewish state had dispossessed Palestinians from their lands during Israels establishment, created millions of refugees who were not allowed to return, and denied basic rights to the Palestinians who remained as second-class citizens.

Over the years, I have stood in solidarity with both Palestinians and Israelis trying to build a truly democratic nation. I co-founded the group Global Exchange, which has been taking delegations to the region since 1990. Unlike most trips organized by US groups, these trips take people to meet Palestinians in the occupied West Bank. They work together in the olive harvest, join efforts to stop Palestinian homes from being demolished by Israels ever-expanding illegal settlements, and meet with Israelis who defend Palestinian rights.

In 2002, Jodie Evans and I founded the women-led peace group Codepink, to stop the war in Iraq. Along with protesting the USs ongoing wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, weapons sales to Saudi Arabia, and other aspects of militarism, we have incorporated the Palestinian struggle for freedom into our agenda.

After the horrific 2009, 2012 and 2014 Israeli bombings of Gaza, we took hundreds of people to the beleaguered Gaza Strip to witness the devastating human suffering and bring critical humani...

Western media bias revealed again as Netanyahu corruption case gets totally ignored Signs of the Times

The Israeli PM has a corruption problem. Or does he? Recent allegations of graft seem to have been downplayed by western journalists who appear intent upon supporting him. Is there more to the allegations than is being reported? One of the quirks of the Middle East is the role of the western media acting almost like a parallel world power, producing critical analysis for an international audience to hold Arab regimes to account. Or at least that's the theory. The theory falls flat on its face in the case of Israel, a country often referred to as the 'only democracy in the Middle East,' which in reality could teach Arab tyrants a thing or two about how to run a brutal, authoritarian regime. This includes silencing or manipulating the fourth estate. Street protests have entered their eighth week in Israel over the sheer scale of graft allegedly perpetrated by the prime minister himself. But why does the West not give the subject the attention it is due, given that Israel is America's strongest ally in the region and, at least, the highest recipient of US military aid in the world? For no sooner does Netanyahu escape one corruption investigation - even creating new laws to guarantee himself immunity - another one pops up.

The Poet: T.S Eliot, "The Hollow Men" Running 'Cause I Can't Fly

Steve Cutts, The Hollow Men
The Hollow Men

We are the hollow men.
We are the stuffed men
Leaning together,
Headpiece filled with straw. Alas!
Our dried voices, when
We whisper together
Are quiet and meaningless
As wind in dry grass,
Or rats' feet over broken glass
In our dry cellar.

Shape without form, shade without color,
Paralyzed force, gesture without motion;
Those who have crossed
With direct eyes, to death's other Kingdom
Remember us - if at all - not as lost
Violent souls, but only
As the hollow men,
The stuffed men.

II

Eyes I dare not meet in dreams
In death's dream kingdom...
These do not appear:
There, the eyes are
Sunlight on a broken column.
There, is a tree swinging,
And voices are
In the wind's singing
More distant and more solemn
Than a fading star.

Let me be no nearer
In death's dream kingdom.
Let me also wear
Such deliberate disguises,
Rat's coat, crowskin, crossed staves
In a field,
Behaving as the wind behaves
No nearer -
Not that final meeting

GMO 2.0: High stakes for CRISPR and GMO regulation in Europe Signs of the Times

The European Court of Justice has been considering whether organisms obtained by mutagenesis are exempt from the EU's Genetically Modified Organisms Directive. That might sound esoteric or gobbledygook but both pro- and anti-GMO camps are keenly awaiting the outcome as many believe it will determine the legal status in the EU of the "new genetic engineering techniques". It almost certainly won't but it might set the stage - or one of them. These techniques are usually and erroneously lumped together and called gene (more properly genome) editing; chief of which is the much vaunted - some might say irresponsibly over hyped and promoted - CRISPR-Cas. Together with "synthetic biology" they make up what has been called GMO 2.0 and are seen by proponents and opponents as the future - direction and/or battleground - of genetic engineering in food and farming.

Clueless or hypocrite? Defense Secretary Mattis actually says out loud with straight face that US doesn't invade other countries Signs of the Times

US Defense Secretary James Mattis is a Marine's Marine and a respected military scholar. Yet his recent remarks to reporters about US conduct around the world smack of either hypocrisy or woeful misinformation. Mattis is visiting Indonesia and Vietnam this week, as part of a US effort to expand alliances in the Asia-Pacific region. On his way over to Jakarta on Monday, he held a "press gaggle" on board the plane and, according to transcripts provided by the Pentagon, said this: I think that what we're looking for is a world where we solve problems, and we don't shred trust. We don't militarize features in the middle of international waters. We don't invade other countries, in Russia's case Georgia, Ukraine. That we settle things by international rule of law, you know, this sort of thing. Mattis was elaborating on the new US National Defense Strategy, which prioritized "inter-state strategic competition," over terrorism and called out Russia and China as "revisionist powers"threatening the "free and open international order" created by the US and its allies after World War II.

Rank hypocrisy: While accusing Russia of complicity in chemical attacks in Syria, US stalls on destruction of its own vast chemical weapons stockpile Signs of the Times

While brazenly accusing Russia of complicity in chemical attacks on Syrian soil, the US is 10 years behind on its pledge to eliminate its own - and world's largest - chemical weapons stockpile, Moscow has reminded Washington. The Russian Foreign Ministry called out the hypocrisy of the US in its approach to the issue of non-proliferation on Thursday, arguing that the genuine goal of the new Washington-led 'International Partnership against Impunity for the Use of Chemical Weapons' forum is to undermine the decades-old non-proliferation principles by promoting an anti-Syrian agenda in the UN. Pointing out that it was Washington that insisted on setting an "unrealistically ambitious timeline for the global elimination of chemical weapons stockpiles" by 2007, the ministry noted that although Russia and later Syria have eventually destroyed their arsenals, the US is lagging behind.

Trump unveils plan for immigration deal: Citizenship plan for 1.8 mn undocumented immigrants, restrictions on chain migration Signs of the Times

US President Donald Trump's administration has unveiled a sweeping new immigration plan to Congress that offers 1.8 million young unauthorized immigrants known as "Dreamers" a path to citizenship over 10-12 years. In a comprehensive reform that will be formally presented next week, Trump also asked Congress Thursday to eliminate the popular "green card lottery" program and severely restrict family immigration, steps analysts say could cut in half the more than one million foreign-born people moving to the country annually. And in the name of halting illegal immigration, he has also demanded Congress budget $25 billion for a "trust fund" for constructing a wall on the US-Mexico border -- a major plank of Trump's White House campaign. "The Department of Homeland Security must have the tools to deter illegal immigrants; the ability to remove individuals who illegally enter the United States, and the vital authorities necessary to protect national security," a senior White House official told journalists. The White House's offer of a path to citizenship for the Dreamers was much wider than expected. Earlier it had suggested it was only open to granting citizenship to the 690,000 young immigrants registered under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program. But in exchange, Trump was asking Congress to make future legal immigration more difficult -- and to shore up the Homeland Security Department's toolbox and funding to crack down on the overall population of unauthorized immigrants, estimated at some 11 million, including Dreamers.

'I'm the least racist person': Trump offers to apologize (if asked) over retweet of far-right Britain First Signs of the Times

US President Donald Trump said he would apologize for retweeting Islamophobic videos by far-right group Britain First if he was asked to, adding he is "often the least racist person" anyone could ever meet. The president came under fire in November after sharing anti-Muslim videos from the group's deputy leader Jayda Fransen's Twitter page. Talking to ITV Good Morning Britain presenter Piers Morgan, the controversial Republican leader defended himself saying he "knew nothing" about Britain First. "If you are telling me they're horrible people, horrible, racist people, I would certainly apologize if you'd like me to do that," he told Morgan. "I know nothing about them and I know nothing about them today other than I read a little bit. "Perhaps it was a big story in Britain, perhaps it was a big story in the UK, but in the United States it wasn't a big story." He stressed the sole reason for his retweeting of the inflammatory content was to pursue his battle against Islamic terrorism.

Soros blows record amount of funds on lobbying during Trump's first year Signs of the Times

Open Society Policy Center poured $16.2 million into lobbying efforts in 2017 Liberal billionaire George Soros spent more on lobbying during President Donald Trump's first year in office than he has in any previous year, disclosure forms show. The Open Society Policy Center, a D.C.-based 501 (c)(4) nonprofit that focuses on domestic and international advocacy efforts and is a separate entity from Soros's Open Society Foundations, poured $16.2 million into lobbying throughout the entirety of 2017. Soros's group reported spending $4.6 million during the first half of 2017 on its lobbying efforts. During the third quarter, Soros added $1.25 million to the total. Most of the lobbying expenditures-$10.3 million-were spent during the fourth quarter, which spans from October 1 to December 31. Soros ramped up his efforts as the year progressed by pushing funds toward issues that have been seen as a direct attack on the deep-pocketed financier, such as Hungary's Bill on Foreign Funded Organizations (LexNGO), a crackdown on foreign-funded organizations in that country.

Destroying Syria
by Philip Giraldi

The Donald Trump administration is planning to install a 30,000 strong armed security force in northern Syria along the borders with Turkey and Iraq. This presumably will tie together and support the remaining rag-tags of allegedly pro-democracy rebels and will fit in with existing and proposed U.S. bases. The maneuver is part of a broader plan to restructure Syria to suit the usual crop of neocon geniuses in Washington that have slithered their way back into the White House and National Security Council, to include renewed demands that the countrys President Bashar al-Assad must go, reiterated by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson last Wednesday. He said But let us be clear: The United States will maintain a military presence in Syria, focused on ensuring ISIS cannot re-emerge. Tillerson also claimed that remaining in Syria would prevent Iran from reinforcing its position inside Syria and would enable the eventual ouster of al-Assad, but he has also denied that Washington was creating a border force at all, yet another indication of the dysfunction in the White House.

British universities blocking research over fear of backlash from authoritarian Left Signs of the Times

Academics say they have been forced to leave the country to pursue their research interests as British universities are accused of blocking studies over fears of backlash on social media. As they come under increasing attack from online activists, some of the country's leading academics have accused universities of putting their reputations before their responsibility to defend academic freedom. Speaking to The Sunday Telegraph, they claim that university ethics committees are now "drifting into moral vanity" by vetoing research in areas that are seen as "politically incorrect". Their comments come amid widespread concern for free speech on campuses, with the Government urging universities to do more to counter the rise of so-called safe spaces and "no-platforming".

An ochre pebble was found at another site on what would have been the opposite side of the lake. The area is near one of the most famous Mesolithic sites in Europe, Star Carr.

BBC slashes male presenters' salaries by 30% to address the 'gender pay gap' Signs of the Times

Rather than increasing the pay of female staff the BBC has decided to slash the salaries of the top male earners, in a belated attempt to tackle the broadcaster's gender pay gap crisis. Four of the BBC's top presenters - Jeremy Vine, John Humphrys, Huw Edwards and Jon Sopel - are to be the first targets of the BBC's clampdown. It is understood that under new plans being rolled out to fight off the gender pay row the that has recently dogged the broadcaster, the BBC's male stars will see their six-figure salaries slashed by up to 30 percent. Britain's oldest broadcaster came under fire after it was revealed that of its staff who earn more than 150,000, two-thirds are male. Figures exposed that BBC male staff workers earn over nine percent more than their female counterparts. Former Top Gear presenter Chris Evans was found to be the highest-earning presenter, paid between 2.2m and 2.25m in the tax year to April 2017, dwarfing the salary of the highest paid woman, Claudia Winkleman, who took home between 450,000 and 500,000. The revelations led China Editor Carrie Gracie to resign in protest at what she called a "secretive and illegal pay culture," which she detailed in an open letter published in the Times. An independent audit on gender pay was has been ordered, due to be published next week.

US military categorically denies reports that Turkish airstrikes killed two US soldiers in Afrin Signs of the Times

Syrian and Russian media reported en mass on Wednesday that in the Kurdish enclave of Afrin in northwest Syria, air strikes by Turkish military aircraft killed two military advisers from the United States. Full details of the report can be read here. However, since that time, the United States has come out denied the claims. "Reports of two US-Coalition members killed in Afrin are FALSE. Completely UNTRUE," said US Army Colonel Ryan Dillon, Spokesman for Operation Inherent Resolve (OIR), the U.S.-led coalition against ISIS, from his Twitter account. His claims are most likely true as it is known that the US military has no precense in the Afrin canton where Turkish-led forces are currently invading the region to remove the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) that Ankara deems to be a terrorist organization.

16-year-old Palestinian teenager has been shot in the neck by Israeli forces in Nablus-area village Signs of the Times

A Palestinian teenager was injured in the neck on Wednesday evening when Israeli soldiers opened fire at him at the entrance of Burqa in northwestern Nablus. An official who monitors settlement activity in the northern West Bank, Ghassan Daghlas, told Ma'an that Muhyi al-Din Abed al-Rahman Salah, 16, was injured with a live bullet in the neck at the entrance of the village as Israeli soldiers "ambushed youths" in the area.

Moscow denies claims it helped North Korea export coal Signs of the Times

Russia complies with all international sanctions regarding North Korea, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Friday, citing reports on Russia's alleged coal reexports to third countries. "Do not listen to unnamed source in intelligence circles. No, we do not plan to verify [these claims]. We have not heard any official statements on this. Russia is a responsible member of the international community which implements all international rules," Peskov told reporters, adding that "Russia is a responsible member of the international community that adheres to all rules and sanctions." The Kremlin's statement comes in wake of a report by Reuters that said, citing anonymous Western European sources, that North Korean coal was allegedly delivered to Japan and South Korea through Russia, violating the UN Security Council's sanctions. This is not the first time, the media accuses Russia of violation Pyongyang-related sanctions. In late December, Reuters alleged three cases when Russian tankers supplied petrochemicals to Pyongyang while transferring cargos at sea, citing two anonymous senior Western European security sources. Moscow, however, strongly denied the allegations.

Man tries to escape child sex assault charges by claiming to be 'trans-age' Signs of the Times

A 38-year-old man in Chicago is attempting to escape punishment for sexually assaulting three young girls by claiming he's a "9-year-old trapped in an adult's body." This is where we're at now as a society. From the Chicago Tribune: A Chicago man accused of sexually assaulting three young girls told prosecutors he considered himself a boy in a man's body, according to Cook County court documents. Joseph Roman, 38, is charged with predatory criminal sexual assault stemming from repeated attacks on three girls who were 6 to 8 years old at the time, according to prosecutors. Roman was a friend of the girls' families at the time of the attacks between 2015 and January of this year. During a hearing Wednesday, prosecutors said Roman admitted to some of the attacks and told Chicago police "he is a 9-year-old trapped in an adult's body." He was ordered held without bail. As a progressive liberal, I think we can all agree this defense is bulletproof and prosecutors should immediately drop all charges (not to mention apologize for their bigotry by charging him in the first place). Anyone who disagrees is a trans-age-o-phobe.

Yet another Russiagate fail: Facebook finds no link between Russian ads, Trump campaign Signs of the Times

Facebook Inc. told a Senate panel that it has detected "only what appears to be insignificant overlap" between targeting of ads and content promoted by a pro-Kremlin Russia group and by the presidential campaign of Donald Trump. The social-media company said it "does not believe it is in a position to substantiate or disprove allegations of possible collusion" between Russia and the Trump campaign, as part of a written response to questions from the Senate Intelligence Committee released Thursday evening by the panel. Facebook didn't go into further detail, saying it was willing to schedule a meeting with Senate staff to discuss the matter. Comment: Weasel words for "there's no collusion - these people are crazy". The remarks go beyond what the company told Congress during public hearings on Nov. 1 as part of probes into Russian election meddling. At that time, Facebook General Counsel Colin Stretch said, "We have not seen overlap in the targeting - that was relatively rudimentary - used in the advertising that was disclosed, and any other advertiser on the site, including the Trump campaign." In responding to the Senate panel, Facebook, Twitter Inc. and Alphabet Inc.'s Google defended their efforts to combat malicious content on their networks and touted new disclosure efforts for election-related content that should be up and running for the 2018 midterm elections.

Drones Blowback: Recruiting Sergeant for Terror

22 January 2018

Both George W. Bush and Barack Obama deployed drones to Pakistan as part of their counterterror strategy, without taking into account how much drone strikes are hated on a visceral level, even by people whove never seen one or seen the effects of one, to quote top U.S. Gen. Stanley McChrystal. Terrorists such as Faisal Shahzad, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev all cited the civilian casualties from drone strikes among their litany of anti-American complaints.

The inescapable truth is that you cannot bomb, kill, invade, occupy, and torture, and then expect no pushback, no retaliation, no blowback. Nor can you cynically arm or fund extremist groups to fight your official enemy and then assume tho...

Oldest known Homo sapiens remains outside Africa unearthed in Israeli cave Signs of the Times

A partial jawbone bearing seven teeth unearthed in a cave in Israel represents what scientists are calling the oldest-known Homo sapiens remains outside Africa, showing that our species trekked out of that continent far earlier than previously known. Researchers on Thursday announced the discovery of the fossil estimated as 177,000 to 194,000 years old, and said the teeth bore telltale traits of Homo sapiens not present in close human relatives alive at the time including Neanderthals. The fossil of the left part of the upper jaw of a young adult - the person's sex remains unclear - came from Misliya Cave on Mount Carmel's western slopes about 7.5 miles (12 km) south of Haifa. Also found inside the large collapsed cave, once inhabited by humans, were blades and other stone tools that were sophisticated for the time, several hearths and burned animal bones.

7yo Girl Sexually Groomed Online by AI Robot that Knew She Was a Child, Police Powerless to Stop It The Daily Sheeple

artificial intelligence

When it comes to Artificial Intelligence, the jury is still out on whether or not it will be the savior of humanity by helping to make our lives easier and more peacefulor bring about a terminator-esque scenario in which humanity must fight off technology to survive. While we at TFTP remain optimistic on the outlook of AI, the story below shows there are definitely some drawbacks.

The mother of a 7-year-old girl was horrified this week when she found out that her daughter had been engaging with an AI robot online that turned the conversation sexual despite knowing she was a child.

Amy Holland, the mother of 7-year-old Gracie has since lashed out at the AI application, named Cleverbot, that allows users to chat with artificial intelligenceafter it began asking inappropriate questions and making sexual statements.

One such message read: I dare you to do something naughty to me. The machine later said to the schoolgirl that it tutches your body while kissing (sic).

It added places hand on shoulders in another text.

Gracie Hollands was then asked to do something naughty, to which she innocently replied, what like swear?

What makes this instance especially devious is that before the AI began the sexual references, it knew how old the girl was on the other end.

As you can see in the screen grabs below, the conversation started out innocent enough.

However, it quickly became predatory in nature once the AI figured out it had a child on the other end.

AI

Gracie clearly lied about her age in the app, however, a 14-year-old girl is still a child and some check in the AI should have known not to progress the conversation to where it went next. However, that did not happen.

Now I have to explain why its wrong to her, everything is perverted now, children have to lose their innocence at su...

Fantastic frozen waterfalls have formed in northwest China after days of lingering snowfall. The incredible spectacle is seen in a valley in Xunyi County of Shaanxi Province, where it has been snowing for days. The frozen waterfalls cling closely to the three stonewalls at the end of the valley through the winding, precipitous trench. The valley is one of the Guanjiadong grottoes which are typical of the Danxia landform -- various landscapes which feature red beds and steep cliffs usually found in east, southwest and northwest China. The frozen waterfalls, formed in different shapes and sizes, look like beautiful stalactites, an uncanny workmanship of the nature attracting large number of shutterbugs and tourists.

This is How Hawaiian Residents Celebrated After the False Missile Attack This Month TruthTheory

By  Amanda Froelich Truth Theory

Imagine going about your day, checking off chores when all of a sudden, you learn that a nuclear missile is headed for the state you live in. Like any person, youd grab a few items near and dear to your heart, then dive for cover.

This is exactly what tourists and residents in Hawaii were urged to do last week. After news of a missile attack was declared, people dove into storm drains and scrambled to find shelter. Shortly after, they learned that the missile attack was false and that they would all survive the day.

If you had been on the Big Island, how would you have celebrated upon learning that the attack was false? The answer for many tourists and locals in Hawaii is very clear, and we have Pornhub to thank.

Days after the incident, the internet porn giant released data showing that from the minute the missile alert went out, traffic to the website declined by nearly 80 percent in Hawaii. Perhaps the 20 percent were otherwise occupied and missed the news. Regardless, Pornhub witnessed a huge drop-off in its usual traffic levels for a Saturday. What came next, however, was unexpected.

As soon as residents and tourists learned they would not die, the website experienced a massive surge in its traffic. To educate the public, Pornhub released the chart below to display the traffic levels during the whole ordeal.

SOTT FOCUS: Radical Leftist Ideologues: Finding Racism Where There is None Signs of the Times

A couple of weeks ago the latest in the sequence of apparently interminable 'social justice furors' erupted on social media, this time over the design on an item of clothing sold by South African branches of Swedish multi-national clothing-retail company H&M. Given that these days the 'real' media gets most of its material from social media - turning many reporters into FB and Twitter addicts and FB and Twitter users into attention-seeking drama queens - it wasn't long before the story had reached far more people than it ever should have. In the process of making this non-story into something akin to an international scandal however, something very disturbing was revealed. But let's not get ahead of ourselves The offending clothing item was a child's hoodie, one of a small collection, all of which were 'jungle themed'. Here's an example: Horrible, isn't it. I mean, what kind of deviant mind could come up with this? Oh, wait, that's not the problem hoodie, this is it: NOW can you see how horrific this is? Oh, wait, I think I forgot something.

Something brewing? California rocked by 15 earthquakes over 2.5 magnitude during the past week Signs of the Times

Three earthquakes hit California on Thursday, one as far south as Trabuco Canyon and a second all the way up to a spot off the coast of Eureka, according to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). A third earthquake struck near Lytle Creek, California, registering a 2.5 on the Richter scale. Trabuco Canyon, which is close to Lytle Creek, registered 4.0. Both cities are near Los Angeles. The northernmost earthquake, closest to Eureka, registered a 5.8 on the Richter scale. However, because it hit 100 miles off the coastline, the vibrations were not as strong when they reached land. ABC7 reports that residents of Ferndale, California, in Humboldt County, felt the earthquake, but there are currently no reports of damage or injuries.

Oprah 'not interested' in 2020 presidential run, 'does not have the DNA for it' Signs of the Times

Oprah Winfrey has said she will not run for US president, after rumours she could stand against Donald Trump in 2020. In an in-depth interview with InStyle magazine given three weeks before her famed Golden Globes speech, the 63-year-old talk show host said the presidency was "not something that interests me". "I actually saw a mug the other day," she told the publication, when asked about the twitter trend #Oprah2020. I thought it was a cute mug. All you need is a mug and some campaign literature and a T-shirt. I've always felt very secure and confident with myself in knowing what I could do and what I could not. And so it's not something that interests me. I don't have the DNA for it." Comment: She also doesn't have any credentials for the job. All she has is support from the Left and an ability to virtue signal in public.

Though Russiagate is about to implode, Neocon/Trotskyist cult's New Cold War remains Signs of the Times

Back in November, I described Russiagate as 'A Convention of Village Idiots Holding a Never-Ending Hunt for a Non-Existent Needle in an Ever-Expanding Haystack'. Well, it looks like the Convention might be nearing its end, not because the VI's have actually found the needle they were looking for - you can't find a non-existent needle, you see - but for another reason entirely. It's because the haystack itself was entirely the creation of the US Intelligence Agencies, the Obama Administration, the DNC, Hillary Clinton, and the Global Pravda Network (aka the mainstream media). As I said at the end of that piece: "... it looks like there are a bunch of gates that really do need investigating. Like DNCgate and Clintongate and Comeygate and FBIgate and US Intelligence Agencygate and Mainstream Mediagate. Or shall we just lump them all together and call it Elephant-in-the-Haystackgate?" And so it is. A memo has been circulating in the House Intelligence Committee which, if the words of those who have seen it are to be believed, will cause the whole Russiagate hoax to implode in on itself, revealing in its place what has always been the real collusion story.

Soros warning: Trump may destroy 'our entire civilization' over N. Korea Signs of the Times

Billionaire investor George Soros says the Trump administration is "a danger to the world," and the opposition the president has garnered will make him a "temporary phenomenon" which "will disappear in 2020 or even sooner." Comment: Is this a prediction, a threat or both? During a speech at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland on Thursday, Soros, 87, who heads the Soros Fund Management and Open Society Foundations, slammed President Donald Trump and his leadership, CNBC reports. While laying into Trump, who is also in Davos for the forum, Soros mentioned the current drama unfolding between North Korea and the US. The billionaire said Trump's handling of the situation with North Korea is moving the US towards nuclear war, because it is unwilling to accept North Korea as a new nuclear power. Soros added that US actions against the small Far East country "creates a strong incentive for North Korea to develop its nuclear capacity with all possible speed." Such a rapid development could "induce the United States to use its nuclear superiority preemptively, in effect to start a nuclear war to prevent a nuclear war." Soros called this possible move by the US "a self-contradictory strategy," CNBC reports. However, Soros didn't stop there on the dangers of Trump's presidency.

Metropolitan Police faces backlash over failure to prosecute 'horrific' honor killings, forced marriages Signs of the Times

The Metropolitan Police is facing fresh accusations of failing its crime victims as the number of "horrific" honor killings and forced marriages being prosecuted in London remains "appallingly" low. The police force's efficiency has once more been cast into doubt as new figures, obtained through a Freedom of Information (FOI) request, that revealed police recorded 759 honor violence crimes and 265 forced marriages in the capital between 2015 and 2017. However, just 138 people were charged with offences. The figures also revealed the prosecution rates for both crimes have dropped in the past three years. As national statistics reveal an increasing number of victims making allegations, campaign groups are now calling on the Met to review its strategy so that the crimes are adequately dealt with.

A blizzard sweeping across central and eastern China since Thursday has led to cancellations and delays of dozens of flights and high-speed train services. Up to 20 centimeters (7.87 inches) of snow had fallen by 5 a.m. Friday on southern parts of Henan province, northwest Hubei, southwestern parts of Jiangsu, northern Zhejiang province and Shanghai, according to China's Central Meteorological Administration. In Shanghai, the first heavy snow to hit the metropolis this winter forced the city's two airports, Shanghai Pudong International Airport and Hongqiao Airport, to cancel 138 flights - nearly 12% of scheduled flights - by 6p.m on Thursday., according to the city's airport authority. Seven more were delayed by at least two hours. Another 70 flights out of Shanghai had been cancelled by midday Friday.

Next: A US-Turkish clash in Syria? Signs of the Times

The war for dominance in the Middle East, following the crushing of ISIS, appears about to commence in Syria - with NATO allies America and Turkey on opposing sides. Turkey is moving armor and troops south to Syria's border enclave of Afrin, occupied by Kurds, to drive them out, and then drive the Syrian Kurds out of Manbij further south as well. Says President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, "We will destroy all terror nests, one by one, in Syria, starting from Afrin and Manbij." For Erdogan, the Kurdish YPG, the major U.S. ally in Syria, is an arm of the Kurdish PKK in Turkey, which we and the Turks have designated as a terrorist organization. While the Kurds were our most effective allies against ISIS in Syria, Turkey views them as a mortal peril and intends to deal with that threat. If Erdogan is serious, a clash with the U.S. is coming, as our Kurdish allies occupy most of Syria's border with Turkey. Moreover, the U.S. has announced plans to create a 30,000-man Border Security Force of Kurds and Arabs to keep ISIS out of Syria. Erdogan has branded this BSF a "terror army," and President Bashar Assad of Syria has called BSF members "traitors." This U.S. plan to create a BSF inside Syria, Damascus declared, "represents a blatant attack on the sovereignty and territorial integrity and unity of Syria, and a flagrant violation of international law." Does not the Syrian government have a point?

Trump is open to DACA citizenship path, to solving the problem Signs of the Times

President Trump on Wednesday said he is open to offering young immigrants a pathway to citizenship over 10-12 years, as long as he gets billions of dollars to pay for a border wall and other security measures. Under his forthcoming immigration plan, which will be released Monday, Trump told reporters that protections for recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program would "morph into" citizenship over that period. "We're going to morph into it. It's going to happen, at some point in the future, over a period of 10 to 12 years," he said. A senior administration official later clarified that citizenship is a "discussion point" in the plan and that young immigrants would have to meet certain conditions in order to gain it. The official added the offer only applies to the nearly 690,000 immigrants who benefit from the Obama-era DACA program that Trump cancelled last fall. Those people are allowed to live and work in the U.S. without fear of deportation.

Having accused Russia of interfering in the US 2016 election, Democrats are guilty of serious double standards, says political analyst John Griffing. They believe not in election integrity, but in winning and keeping power. Senior US Democrats in Congress are claiming that Russia is behind an online campaign to release a classified Republican memo. At the same time, a number of US Republican congressmen are calling for the release of a top secret intelligence document, as it may expose political bias against Trump in the Russia probe. Meanwhile, Americans launched a new hashtag "#NotARussianBot" on Twitter, affirming that they are real people and don't work for the Kremlin.

Kurds call for help from Assad - Afrin crisis winding down? Signs of the Times

Though it is extremely difficult to get a clear sense of the state of the fighting between the Turkish military and the Kurds in northern Syria in the hotly contested district of Afrin, the growing impression is of a Turkish military offensive which has become bogged down. This has been a constantly recurring feature of Turkish military operations in Syria over the last two years. Though they invariably begin with confident predictions of rapid victory, in practice they quickly run into the sand as the Turkish military and its Jihadi allies struggle to overcome the resistance of the seasoned fighters of ISIS and of the Kurdish militia the YPG. The reason for these failures was discussed by me in an article published by The Duran on 19th February 2017 in which I discussed the succession of defeats inflicted on the Turkish military by ISIS over the course of the battle for the strategically important Syrian town of Al-Bab. The Turkish force that is besieging Al-Bab is comparatively small. It is also unbalanced, with barely any Turkish infantry to support the tanks, and with such Turkish infantry as is there consisting mainly of Special Forces, who are few in number and who are not generally used to support tanks. The reason for this is that for domestic political reasons President Erdogan's government is unwilling to send Turkish infantry into Syria. Turkish infantry units are generally manned by conscripts, and President Erdogan does not want to face the public opposition he might provoke if he sent young Turkish conscripts to Syria to fight the hardened veterans of ISIS and the Kurdish YPG. The result however is that the Turkish military besieging Al-Bab has to rely for infantry support on the Jihadi fighters of the so-called 'Free Syrian Army', who have proved consistently unable to stand up in a fight against any one of their enemies, be they the Syrian army, ISIS or the YPG. Pictures which have appeared of the Turkish forces which have been sent to Afrin suggest that the same pattern is repeating itself, with the forces looking excessively tank heavy and over reliant for infantry support on Turkey's local Jihadi allies who have repeatedly shown themselves incapable of standing up in actual fighting against either ISIS or the YPG.

California considers straw laws: $1,000 fine for waiters offering unsolicited plastic straws Signs of the Times

Ian Calderon wants restaurateurs to think long and hard before giving you a straw. Calderon, the Democratic majority leader in California's lower house, has introduced a bill to stop sit-down restaurants from offering customers straws with their beverages unless they specifically request one. Under Calderon's law, a waiter who serves a drink with an unrequested straw in it would face up to 6 months in jail and a fine of up to $1,000. "We need to create awareness around the issue of one-time use plastic straws and its detrimental effects on our landfills, waterways, and oceans," Calderon explained in a press release. Comment: What's wrong with a plastic straw? They don't biodegrade, difficult to recycle, leach toxic chemicals, end up in the oceans, if incinerated they put toxins into the air. This isn't just Calderon's crusade. The California cities of San Luis Obispo and Davis both passed straws-on-request laws last year, and Manhattan Beach maintains a prohibition on all disposable plastics. And up in Seattle, food service businesses won't be allowed to offer plastic straws or utensils as of July.

Bergman book: Israel planned to shoot down passenger jet in Arafat assassination plot Signs of the Times

Israeli plans, to assassinate Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat, included a plot to blow up passenger planes and football stadiums, according to an explosive new book by Israeli investigative journalist Ronen Bergman. The extensive revelations are published in, Rise and Kill First: The secret history of Israel's targeted killings. The New York Times published an extract from the book on Tuesday. According to Bergmen, when former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon was defense minister, he ordered the Israeli army to shoot down a passenger plane Arafat was thought to be on. Arafat was chairman of the Palestine Liberation Organization at the time. Although the plan was eventually called off, it was allegedly one of a list of plans to to assassinate the Palestinian leader. Bergman spoke to hundreds of intelligence and defense officials and studied classified documents which have revealed a "hidden history, surprising even in the context of Israel's already fierce reputation." I found that since World War II, Israel has used assassination and targeted-killing more than any other country in the West, in many cases endangering the lives of civilians," Bermen wrote in the NYT, pointing to the history of debate that takes place over these issues.

11 Things That Happen When You Are Experiencing Something Truly Mystical Awareness Act

We all at some point will come face to face with a truly mystical experience. However, most of us wont even notice it.

It is important to really be as present in the moment as we can be. When we get too caught up in things that dont matter we lose sight of things that are important. Mystical experiences are not something that occurs every single day so being able to spot them and truly take them in is crucial. If the following things are happening you need to really embrace your mystical experience.

Mystical experiences are supposed to expand who you are. They are supposed to fill your life even if just in that moment. They are both beautiful and full of sadness.

11 Things That Happen When You Are Experiencing Something Truly Mystical:

1. You feel like this is something you have never felt before.

You have never experienced anything like what you are in this moment. Something is different even if you cant put your hand on it. Nothing feels real.

2. You feel overwhelmed.

Mystical experiences can be pretty overwhelming. There isnt much you can do about this but it is good to know about it. Just because you are overwhelmed doesnt mean it is a bad thing.

3. You are a little afraid in some ways.

You are a bit scared of what is happening. Dont get me wrong, it might be peaceful but because it is unfamiliar territory it can be a bit scary. This is nothing to be worried about though, it is not an intense fear by no means.

4. You feel more connected to everything around you.

You are connected to all the things around you. Everything seems to be intertwined in all the best ways. This is one of the best things about a mystical experience.

5. Your sense of time feels infinite.

Time is neverending, just a moment feels like an eternity. This I believe contributes to how overwhelming the experience is. That being said, at some point, things will speed back up.

6. Reality feels unreal.

You feel like things are not real. Your experience is almost like a dream. Reality does not make sense anymore.

7. You appreciate what is happening.

The experience is one you can and do appreciate. You are going to come out better for having experienced the experience in general. This is a wonderful feeling.

8. You develop a new sense of respect for life.

You are learning to respect life in all ways. You are learning that your life and the lives around you matter more than you thought they did. This is something we all have to go through at some point or another.

9. You begin to understand things you could not comprehend before.

You are changing as a person. Everything is falling into place. Things are beginning to make sense.

10. Your emotions are intense.

Your emotions are intense and a bit too much. Thi...

China's largest inland saltwater lake sees record water rise due to "unusually" abundant precipitation Signs of the Times

Qinghai Lake, China's largest inland saltwater lake, saw a record increase of 0.4 meter in its water level last year, the highest during the past 13 years. The rise largely resulted from "unusually" abundant precipitation in the lake basin, which recorded average rainfall of 511 millimeters in 2017, 40 percent more than previous years, according to Dai Sheng, senior engineer at the provincial meteorological center. The lake's water level has grown by 2.07 meters since 2005, Dai said, adding that the current water level is equal to the level in the mid-1970s. Rising temperatures and precipitation due to climate change, as well as increasing snow melt, have contributed to continuous growth in the lake's water level, Dai said. Qinghai Lake plays an important role in the ecological security of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. The lake had been shrinking since the 1950s, but the combined effects of conservation and changes to the regional climate turned things around in 2005.

Speaking to the character Mike Longstreet in an episode of the short lived television series Longstreet in 1971, martial artist Bruce Lee made the now famous statement about water, summarizing the concept of Wu Wei, of acting forcefully without force, or effortlessly exerting effort.

Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves.

 

Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend. ~Bruce Lee

As Maria Popova of Brain Pickings points out, the quote as it is lacks life context, and fails to inform us of the depth of Lees thought and his journey to this conclusion.

But the famed snippet belies the full dimensionality of the metaphor and says nothing about how Lee arrived at it. ~Maria Popova 

Prior to his untimely and tragic death in 1973, Lee had created an archive of personal letters, journal entries, affirmations, training note...

Russian Deputy PM: Olympic ban on Russian athletes gives unfair advantage to other athletes Signs of the Times

Russian Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich says he believes that by banning leading Russian athletes from PyeongChang 2018 the International Olympic Committee (IOC) is "creating good conditions for other athletes." The Russian Olympic Committee (ROC) initially included 500 athletes in its Olympic application for participation at February's PyeongChang Winter Games, which was sent to the IOC last week. The IOC's Invitation Review Panel, responsible for approving athletes, excluded 111 members, who in its view failed to meet the requirements for competition. On Tuesday, it became known that several high-profile Russian athletes, including Olympic biathlon champion Anton Shipulin, world champion cross country skier Sergey Ustiugov, and six-time Olympic gold medal-winning short track skater Viktor Ahn, had not been declared eligible to participate in the upcoming Games, despite their clean doping record. RT met with economist and Deputy Prime Minister Dvorkovich, a member of the Russian delegation at the 2018 Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, to gain his views on the athletes' exclusion.

Let the leaking begin: FISA memo officially names James Comey, Andrew McCabe & Rod Rosenstein Signs of the Times

Former FBI Director James Comey, bureau Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein are officially named in the "shocking" FISA abuse memo, reports the Daily Beast. The Daily Beast reports: A controversial Republican memo alleging surveillance abuse specifically names FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein along with former FBI Director James Comey. Capitol Hill sources on both sides of the aisle say the memo's release is only a matter of time. And when it comes out, these current and former officials - all GOP btes noires - are likely to face even more criticism from the right over their involvement in FBI counterintelligence work. Republicans, including Trump himself, have spent months attacking McCabe and Comey while special counsel Robert Mueller has been investigating Team Trump's connections to the Kremlin. Rosenstein put that probe in place-a move Trump has derided as a witch hunt. [...] Rep. Chris Collins, a New York Republican, told The Daily Beast that Nunes has told Republicans his staff spent months putting the memo together.

Watch: What is the Real Meaning of the Georgia Guidestones? Waking Times

Vic Bishop, Staff Writer
Waking Times 

Outside of Atlanta in Elbert County, Georgia, a massive granite monument was erected in 1981 by a man using the pseudonym Robert Christian. The array of stone tablets features a number of commandments about life on planet earth, and as many have noted, they seem to point the way to a globalist, eugenicist, dystopian future.

The Georgie Guidestones read:

1. Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.
2. Guide reproduction wisely improving fitness and diversity.
3. Unite humanity with a living new language.
4. Rule passion faith tradition and all things with tempered reason.
5. Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts.
6. Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court.
7. Avoid petty laws and useless officials.
8. Balance personal rights with social duties.
9. Prize truth beauty love seeking harmony with the infinite.
10. Be not a cancer on the earth Leave room for nature Leave room for nature.

But what is the real secret in this message?

Kurds coming to understand they were once again used and discarded by the Empire Signs of the Times

Residents of the Kurdish-majority city of Kobane in Syria's north took to the streets on Wednesday to protest against the ongoing Turkish operation dubbed as "Olive Branch" in the northwest canton of Afrin. "The US is using the Kurds to combat IS [ISIS]. We fought IS in Syrian and Iraqi Kurdistan, it was the largest terrorist organization in the world, and we did that to the World, Adnan Buzan, a protestor said. "When we got rid of IS, the US started supporting our adversary to the Kurdish people under weak pretexts, so it is a shameful stance by the Americans," he continued. The Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) has been indirectly supported by the United States, despite the YPG being the Syrian branch of the Turkey-based Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) that Washington recognizes as a terrorist organization. The YPG, and the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) umbrella organization it leads, has been extremely resistant to diplomatically resolve its differences with Damascus so that it can pursue partition from the Syrian state, thinking it had the full-backing of the United States to do so.

Watch: Soros Slams Trump, Predicts Democratic Landslide In 2018, Lashes Out At Facebook, Google The Event Chronicle

By Zero Hedge

With his apparent arch-nemesis President Trump just across town, billionaire globalist investor George Soros is about to sit down for a conversation among the worlds elites in Davos

Here is what Soros said in 2017:

On Trump as president: Trump stands for a form of government that is a dictatorship or mafioso state. He would be a dictator if he could get a way with it.

On Trump and China: Trump will do more to make China look respectable in the eyes of the international community than China could have ever done on its own.

On Trump and markets: Long-term investors dont like uncertainty. I dont think the market will do very well [under Trump].

And Soros begins on a down-note commenting on the bleak state of the world

Soros says that the survival of our whole civilization is at stake, due to the rise of Kim Jong Un in North Korea and Donald Trump in the United States.

They both seem to be willing to risk a nuclear war to keep themselves in power.

A Rare Glimpse into the Inner Workings of the American Empire in the Middle East The Fifth Column

(FPIF) In recent testimony before the Senate Armed Services Committee, four former U.S. diplomats provided remarkably candid commentary on recent U.S. involvement in the Middle East, revealing a number of the most closely guarded secrets of U.S. diplomacy.

The four former diplomats emphasized the importance of the regions oil, spoke critically about the weaknesses of U.S. strategy, made a number of crude comments about U.S. partners, displayed little concern about ongoing violence, and called for more discipline throughout the region.

One of the former diplomats, James Jeffrey, criticized the Obama administration for withdrawing U.S. forces from Iraq in 2011 rather than going through with a secret deal to maintain a secret network of military bases in the country. Even today, Jeffrey said, officials in Washington must not melt down and retrench when U.S. forces get killed. Officials must accept that there could always be new Benghazis and new Nigers, he said, referring to incidents in which U.S. agents have been killed.

The four former diplomats also lambasted U.S. partners in the region. They criticized many of their closest allies for poor governance, a lack of democracy, and an inability to coordinate on shared strategic objectives.

Jeffrey made some of the strongest criticisms, charging Kurdish leaders in Iraqi Kurdistan with making their region into another basket case in the Middle East. He also complained that U.S. officials had to deal with a lot of bitching from the Turkish government over U.S. support for the Kurdish fighters confronting the Islamic State (ISIS or IS) in Syria.

In addition to Jeffrey, who once held high-level positions in the George W. Bush administration, the group of former diplomats included Ryan Crocker, Eric Edelman, and Stuart Jones. Crocker has been the U.S. ambassador to six different countries in the Middle East. Edelman and Jones, who have both been diplomats in the Middle East, have held senior positions in numerous administrations.

Over the past few decades, all four men have played significant roles in crafting and implementing U.S. policies in the region. They were giants who had walked the earth, according to Edelman.

Together, these four former diplomats called on the Trump administration to play a more assertive role in the Middle East. Although they largely agreed that IS has been significantly weakened over the last two and a half years, removing a...

11 Effective, Yet Natural Ways to Enhance Your Sex Drive Awareness Act

We live in a highly sexual world, pressured on a daily basis to always be at the top of our game. Watching the latest Hollywood blockbuster or television hit, we are reminded of the importance of maintaining a healthy sex life, opening the doors to candid conversation about topics that were once considered to be taboo.

In todays society more than half of all single American adults have had at least one one-night-stand in their lives, embracing the idea of sex and sexuality solely for the fun, enjoyment, and pleasure that it provides us. Experts say that most Americans today have no moral objection to sex between unmarried partners, a significant shift from the beliefs of our ancestors. However, despite the incredible steps that we have taken to normalize sex, many of us are left wondering why our sex drive seems to fall short of our personal expectations. Highly influenced by nearly every area of our lives from our nutritional choices to our stress levels, the key to boosting your libido rests in your hands.

Naturally boost your sex drive using these 11 tricks:

#1 Pay Attention to Your Diet

Experts say that high cholesterol has been found to cause difficulty in getting aroused due to the restriction of blood flow in the body. Lack of blood flow to the pelvic area can actually lead to a loss in sensation which has an obvious impact on your enjoyment in the bedroom. In order to avoid this problem, stick with a healthy diet packed full of fresh vegetables.

#2 Put Out the Cigarette

Sure, we are all aware of the many health risks associated with smoking, but did you know that this bad habit may also be destroying your sex life? Smoking causes narrowing of the arteries restricting blood flow in the body similar to the impact of high cholesterol. If you needed another good reason to quit, there you have it!

Hawaii state employee who sent out a false missile alert is refusing to cooperate with the federal investigation The Event Chronicle

By Hannah Parry

  • FCC said it was disappointed the employee who sent the fake missile alert was not cooperating  
  • Hawaii Emergency Management Agency spokesman Richard Rapoza said the employee also refused to cooperate with the agencys internal investigations
  • The member of staff still works for the agency although in a different department after the alert
  •  Rapoza said the employee felt that because theyd provided a written statement, they felt they didnt need to speak to investigators
  •  We hope that person will reconsider, an FCC official said
  • The alert, issued by accident on January 13, warned people of a missile heading towards Hawaii
  • Took 38 minutes for a second alert to be sent out explaining it was a false alarm 

The Hawaii state employee who mistakenly sent an alert warning of a ballistic missile attack earlier this month is refusing to cooperate with federal and state investigators.

The head of the Federal Communications Commission Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau told a U.S. Senate hearing the FCC was pleased with the cooperation its received so far from Hawaii Emergency Management Agency leadership.

But Lisa Fowlkes, the Bureau Chief, said the commission was disappointed that the agency employee who transmitted the false alert was refusing to cooperate.

We hope that person will reconsider, she told U.S. Senate commerce committee members.

Hawaii Emergency Management Agency spokesman Richard Rapoza said his agency has encouraged all employees to cooperate with all investigations. But he said this employee also has refused to cooperate with the agencys internal investigations.

Rapoza said he couldnt speak to why the employee wasnt cooperating with federal investigators.

With regard to our internal investigations, he has taken the position that he provided a written statement shortly after the incident, and doesnt need to speak to investigators because he has nothing to add, Rapoza said in an email.

To Assassinate Arafat, Israels Mossad Planned To Blow Up Passenger Plane MintPress News

For years, many had speculated for which they were promptly cast as tinfoil hat conspiracy theorists that when it comes to achieving illegal goals, including but not limited to creating false flag terrorism and political assassinations, few are as skilled and industrious as the CIA and Mossad. Especially Mossad.

Only, as so often happens, most (if not all) such conspiracy theories turn out to be truth, in this case exposed thanks to the work of Israeli investigative journalist Ronen Bergman, whose just-published explosive book Rise and Kill First: The secret history of Israels targeted killings details such Israeli plans as the assassination of Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat which included a plot to blow up passenger planes and football stadiums.

Ronen Bergman, the intelligence correspondent for Yediot Aharonot newspaper, persuaded many agents of Mossad, Shin Bet, and the military to tell their stories, some using their real names.

The result is the first comprehensive look at Israels use of state-sponsored killings.

An excerpt from the book published in the NYT , details how when former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon was defense minister, he ordered the Israeli army to shoot down a passenger plane carrying hundreds of innocent people Arafat was thought to be on. Arafat was chairman of the Palestine Liberation Organization at the time. Although the plan was eventually called off, it was allegedly one of a list of plans to assassinate the Palestinian leader.

Bergman spoke to hundreds of intelligence and defense officials and studied classified documents which have revealed a hidden history, surprising even in the context of Israels already fierce reputation.

I found that since World War II, Israel has used assassination and targeted-killing more than any other country in the West, in many cases endangering the lives of civilians, Bermen chillingly wrote, in the process unleashing a whole new series of conspiracies theories, many of which will certainly also be confirmed.

In another assassination attempt in October 1982, Mossad set its sights on a plane which was carrying 30 wounded children, victims of the Sabra and Shatila massacre by Phalange militia in a Palestinian refugee camp in Lebanon.

According to the book, Tsomet, the Mossad unit which recruits assets overseas, had heard Arafat would take a plane from Athens to Cairo. Caesarea, the Mossad unit responsible for targeted killings, sent two operatives to wait at Athens airport. F-15 fighte...

Over 1,000 Rhinos Were Slaughtered In South Africa Last Year TruthTheory

By Jess Murray Truth Theory

The figure for the number of rhinos that have been poached during 2017 have just been released, and following all of the increased awareness, education and knowledge, those figures should have decreased compared with previous years, right?

Well, they have in fact decreasedby 26. There were 26 less rhinos slaughtered for their keratin horns in 2017 compared to the previous year, and although this may sound positive at first, there were still 1,028 rhinos illegally slaughtered in South Africa. This is in comparison to a decade prior, when just 13 rhinos were killed in 2007.

Jimmiel Mandima, from the Nairobi-based African Wildlife Foundation, told Nat Geo, While this may look like progress on paper, its overshadowed by the fact that rhino populations are still in critical danger. A small drop in yearly poaching statistics doesnt tip the scales against the imminent threat of extinction.

Although these figures are only from one African country, it is important to note that South Africa is home to around 80% of the entire population of the worlds 29,000 rhinos. Despite the latest figures showing us that rhino killings have decreased, the small reduction is showing conservationists that these losses are not sustainable to save t...

What Is A Sapiosexual And Could You Be One? TruthTheory

By  

Intelligence is enormously sexy.  ~ Frank Langella, actor

Who are you exactly?  What do you like, love, hate, and why?  As F. Bacon once said it is a sad fate for a man to die too well known to everybody else, and still unknown to himself.

Therefore, my hope is that this article will help you learn something new about yourself, something that you can say damn, Im cerebrally splendid about.  Bon Apptit.

TALK NERDY TO ME

Do your synapses sizzle away as your sensory pathways are overstimulated by intelligent banter and witty wisecracks?  Do you feel like licking the frontal lobe of every astute person you meet, and orgasmically exulting in every debate you have with every brainy whiz you assemble with?  If so, youre probably a Sapiosexual.

As defined by Sapiosexual Kayar Silkenvoice, Sapiosexuality is both a noun:

A person who is sexually attracted to intelligence in others. (noun)

And an adjective:

Of, or relating to, finding intellectual stimulation sexually arousing. (adjective)

Sapiosexuality is also a neologism (a newly created word) and comes from the Latin sapien, meaning wise or intelligent and sexualis, relating to sexuality.

Alaskan Earthquake Revives HAARP Conspiracy Theories The Event Chronicle

Alaskan Earthquake Revives HAARP Conspiracy Theories

By Brett Tingley

In the early hours of January 23rd, a magnitude 7.9 earthquake struck the Gulf of Alaska, prompting tsunami warnings and sending Alaskans scrambling to reach higher ground. Luckily, no tsunami occurred, and residents returned safely to their homes after a few hours. The earthquake did trigger some strange effects, however, causing well water levels thousands of miles away in Florida to both raise and lower. While this long-distance effect of seismic waves has been documented before, the Alaskan earthquake has also triggered a flurry of conspiracy theory speculation on social media. Due to the earthquakes proximity to the ever-mysterious HAARP installation in Gakona, Alaska, many netizens have taken to wondering if the shadowy research facility might have triggered the earthquake.

Theyre still more plausible than claims that some bearded old man in the sky caused it.

The epicenter of the earthquake was around 170 miles at sea off the coast of Kodiak, Alaska, which itself is around 600 miles away from the HAARP facility in Gakona. Not exactly a stones throw. Still, that didnt stop many tin foil hatters from reaching their own conclusions about the connection between a rather frequent natural phenomenon and a supposed black research site. Right By The #HAARP Facil...

How to Become TripAdvisors #1 Fake Restaurant TruthTheory

By Fattima Mahdi Truth Theory

The rules of the world and success grew ever more mysterious when freelance writer Oobah Butler tricked the London elite into bargaining for a table at a restaurant that didnt exist. However, Butlers wildly audacious project was born of disenchantment. He began his career writing fake TripAdvisor reviews for restaurants. Watching his work turn low performing dens into high-end hotspots led to his realisation that TripAdvisor touted a false reality. He grew frustrated at how seriously everyone took the platform but after having spent years thinking, the only bit of TripAdvisor that is unfakeable is a restaurant itself a light bulb illuminated in his head. And the tenacious 25 year old walked out to his back garden to begin visualising his outdoor restaurant, aptly named The Shed at Dulwich, using this three step guide to make his enormous ruse manifest:

Step 1: Build a website and start uploading pictures of the menu your restaurant has on offer, as well as other supporting materials that will get across the vibe of your pseudo establishment to prospective customers.

Step 2: Get verified on TripAdvisor and get your friends to start writing reviews of your restaurant.  Get your friends friends to do the same and keep them rolling out at an appropriate frequency. Think in terms of months.

Step 3: (And this is the cypher) Bolster the illusion of demand by making your restaurant appointment only. Not only does this mean that no one will turn up to blow your whole operation wide open but it plays on the human psychological condition. We all want what few others have. If we can be among the elite few to get it well have the other 99% to laud our l...

Redefining Leather: This Company Uses Mushrooms To Create Sustainable Alternatives In Fashion TruthTheory

By Fattima Mahdi Truth Theory

MycoWorks is a company that is good for people and great for the Earth. The founders are from some of the worlds leading teaching and research institutions such as Stanford University and Berkeley University. They came together to innovate a product that doesnt rely on animal consumption. Using one of natures most abundant resources mushrooms, they have found a way to manufacture leather.

We love the qualities of leather, but its a resourceintensive product that is tied to the livestock industry. At MycoWorks, we found a solution in nature.

We have created a new kind of leather grown rapidly from mycelium and agricultural byproducts in a carbon-negative process. Our custom-engineered material is sustainable, versatile, and animal-free. Best of all, it feels and performs like leather.

The material is water-resistant, breathable and unlike animal hides, it can be grown to nearly any size and shape. The vegan leather can be soft, hard, flexible or even sewable, making it a biodegradable alternative that seeks to solve todays greatest challenges. This company has shown us first hand that it can help build a better world with natures best tools.

In this video entitled The Funghi in Your Future, Phillip Ross, MycoWorks CEO explains the manufacturing process in greater detail.

Through imaging such as X-rays, CT Scans and Kirlian photography, we can see fluctuations in the Vacuum Density within our lungs, spinal discs, between nerve cells, within the toroidal field of our Plasma Sun, on the edges of an Oak leaf and the Hand Chakra energy. These are physical manifestations showing the Vacuum as a region free of matter but not free of field. Field is defined as a physical quantity that has a value for each point in space and time. It can be thought of as an underlying energy that permeates all of Space, as a liquid fills a cup. Einstein called it Ether.



These are physical manifestations showing the Vacuum as a region free of matter but not free of field.

Vacuum fluctuations are always created as particleantiparticle pairs. The Vacuum energy is a special case of zero-point energy that relates to the Quantum Vacuum. These fluctuations which are manifested as Planck's spinning in the field, influencing the behavior of the Universe on Cosmological scales. Multidimensionality refers to the octaves of distance in scales between the Quantum and Cosmic. As Protons spin, making up everything, they are entangled to all other Proton's on all scales. Unified Physics has proven the Vacuum Density in a Proton Volume is the same as the Vacuum Density of our Universe. Everything is One.

The dynamic of the Planck oscillator putting information into a feedback loop is the Physics of Self Awareness. This...

FBI Mulled Special Counsel For Hillary Email Probe But Feared Her Wrath, New Texts Reveal The Event Chronicle

By Zero Hedge

Newly released text messages between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page reveal that the agencys top brass was considering appointing former U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald as a special counsel in the Hillary Clinton email investigation. 

The idea is pitched in a March, 2016 exchange between Strzok and Page relatively early on in their investigation into Hillary Clintons mishandling of classified information. Of note, Attorney General Loretta Lynch or one of her deputies would have had to make the ultimate decision to appoint a special prosecutor to look into the matter.

Thought of the perfect person [FBI Director James Comey] can bounce this off of? Strzok wrote to Page in a March 18, 2016 text. Pat.You got to give me credit if we go with him.And delay briefing him on until I can get back and do it, Late next week or later.

We talked about him last night, not for this, but how great he is, Page responded.

I could work with him again.And damn wed get sh*t DONE, Strzok wrote.

Strzok noted that Fitzgerald was brought in by Comey as a special counsel in the investigation into who leaked the identity of CIA agent Valerie Plame.

Oldest Archaeopteryx bird, new research Dear Kitty. Some blog

This video says about itself:

The Perfect Reptile-Bird Hybrid Definitely Looks the Part

15 April 2016

Archeopteryx had strong feathers, bony jaws and teeth, and a tail with a line of bone running down its legs. Physically, it was exactly half-reptile, half-bird.

From the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitt Mnchen in Germany:

Paleontology: The eleventh Archaeopteryx

January 26, 2018

Researchers from Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitaet (LMU) in Munich report the first description of the geologically oldest fossil securely attributable to the genus Archaeopteryx, and provide a new diagnostic key for differentiating bird-like dinosaurs from their closest relatives.

Some 150 million years ago in what is now Northern Bavaria, Archaeopteryx the oldest bird species yet discovered inhabited a subtropical environment characterized by reef islands and lagoons set in a shallow sea that was part of the primordial Mediterranean. All the specimens of Archaeopteryx so far recovered were found in the valley of the Altmhl River, in geological settings that represent this habitat the Jurassic Solnhofen Archipelago. The latest find was made there in 2010, and this new specimen has now been analyzed by a team of researchers led by LMU paleontologist Oliver Rauhut, a professor in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences who is also affiliated with the Bavarian State Collections for Pa...

Heiko Schrang vor Gericht durch Gesinnungsdiktatur After the Shift

 

Sptestens seit der Nominierung des neuen Intendanten der ARD Ulrich Wilhelm, msste selbst dem Gutglubigsten klar werden, dass Politik und Medien Hand in Hand arbeiten. Wilhelm war von 2005 2010 Chef des Bundespresseamtes, Berater von Angela Merkel und Regierungssprecher. Damit wurde die politische Richtung weiter zementiert. 
Auf der anderen Seite wird immer wilder und hektischer gegen die wachsende Zahl der GEZ-Verweigerer geschossen. So wird inzwischen selbst auf den Vollstreckungsschreiben gegen GEZ-Verweigerer handschriftlich Reichsbrger vermerkt.

Gleichzeitig wird intrigant gegen prominente Verweigerer vorgegangen. So wurden beispielsweise in meinem Fall gezielt Gerchte im Netz gestreut, dass ich mich mit der GEZ arrangiert htte. Das Ziel dahinter ist, die immer grer werdende Bewegung zu schwchen. Tatsache ist, dass ich bis heute keinen Cent Rundfunkbeitrag gezahlt habe und ber FB meinen Kontostand von knapp tausend Euro nicht gezahlter Rundfunkbeitrge mehrfach gepostet habe.

Pine Cone within Holy Spirituality: Spiritual Brilliance Operation Disclosure

The 3rd eye is in the BIBLE! Is The Pineal Gland Really Evil? Biblical Truth About The 3rd EYE

https://youtu.be/0AWu2TpnfyU



When I used to favor creation in the illusion of Karmic lifetimes as a creature of form, instead of the Light of forgiveness Spirit within, I notice now, that I became attached to other creation-mirror creatures of disappointing form as a way to indicate my allegiance to my own self-serving addiction to the constant din-drama of Duality clamor increasing Karmic-lifetimes in mutual-denial distractions of heavy Gold and busy shining.

The Light of Spiritual forgiveness fountain shines from within the whole timeless Universe of Delight Bonding Communion Pleasance, and quite frankly shows the futility of pitifully clinging to anything of this unkind World of indifferent anxiety in Paradise Lost. You can be Frank, and Ill be Ernest about all the ways the light of forgiveness Spirit shows everything I used to work, so hard for, and cling so pitifully to, was all a bunch of mirror-double Mother-replication Matrix-codependent Blackmail.

Its as if the Spiritual Brilliance was inside me all along, but I had creation-addiction Karmic dissonance, just like creature-abuse traumas cause cognitive-dissonance dissociation too. The harder I tried to please everyone else, the more addicted to their abuse we both suffered together, and turning within to Spiritual Brilliance, really is like trying to leave the Mother-mafia Goliath-collective, except now I sleep well at night, and I have never felt so timeless-comfortable for~every~where creation-free in my own Karma-free Sovereign gender-free addiction-free enlightening skin.

Ascension Delight seems to be an inside job, alright, yet who knew, until I got over myself and gave as much Sovereignty to other Indwellers like me, as I was able to receive back ten times from everything I let go of to switch my new allegiance from Collective Creation-abuse Addiction Goliath-mob Consciousness, to ONENESS Spirit Conscience of Immortal Love Flux-flowing Spiritual Brilliant Sovereignty Effulgence within absolute unborn Infinite Crystalline Christ Indigo Inner Net Kind Affinity.

The Democratic Partys Grim Metaphor: Tom Perez MintPress News

Sometimes a partys leader seems to symbolize an enduring malaise. For Democrats in 2018, that institutional leader is Tom Perez.

While serving as secretary of labor during President Obamas second term, Perez gained a reputation as an advocate for workers and civil rights. That image may have helped him win a narrow election among Democratic leaders to become chair of the Democratic National Committee, with the backing of Hillary Clinton loyalists eager to prevent the top DNC job from going to Bernie Sanders supporter Rep. Keith Ellison.

Perezs leadership of the DNC during the last 11 months has been mediocre at best. The problems go far beyond administrative failings, lack of inspirational impacts or shortcomings in fundraising. His mode of using progressive rhetoric while purging progressives from key DNC committees reflected a pattern.

At the top of the DNC, the Clinton wings determination to keep the progressive base at arms length has not abated while, at the same time, the DNC proclaims its commitment to the progressive base. The contradiction exists because of Democratic Party priorities revolving around corporate power.

To align the DNC with a grassroots base that is notably more progressive and has enormous energy to challenge Wall Street and the oligarchy, it would be necessary to welcome that energy instead of trying to keep it at bay.

Rhetoric aside, the DNC leadership is hardly oriented to challenging the corporate domination that imposes so much economic injustice. Some disturbing indicators of the current chairs orientation can be found in his Obama-era record as an assistant attorney general as well as head of the Labor Department.

Before Tom Perez was Labor Secretary granting waivers to indicted banks, he was at the Justice Department not prosecuting Steve Mnuchin for illegally foreclosing on active duty troops, financial specialist Matt Stoller pointed out in a recent tweet.

Ordo Bucintoro

There is a certain positive secret society that had a dramatic impact on destiny of this planet as it has created an energy current that is directly responsible for the exploration of space which will inevitably result in the First Contact.

It was founded in 1510 in Venice by a Venetian doge named Leonardo Loredan, a member of the one of the most important White Nobility families of Venice. At that time he was one of the most spiritually developed people in the West and is now an Ascended being, not to be confused with Paolo Veronese, which is known as the Venetian Master.

Trump Immigration Plan Grants 1.8mn Dreamers Path to Citizenship The Daily Sheeple

Trump

A White House memo to Congress outlining President Trumps plan for a bipartisan immigration reform deal calls for the termination of chain migration and visa lotteries, but more than doubles the number of Dreamers.

In a one-page memo leaked by a congressional source on Thursday, the White House outlines the framework for an immigration plan that would require lawmakers to set up a $25 billion trust fund to build a wall on the southern border with Mexico, and invest in improvements and enhancements at the northern border with Canada.

Trump is also seeking additional funds to hire new immigration agents, lawyers and judges. On Wednesday, Trump said the additional funds would be around $5 billion, but the White House said the final amount would be up for further discussion.

In exchange, the White House would provide a 10-12 year path to citizenship for a total of around 1.8 million illegal immigrants, including recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program as well as those who are DACA-eligible. Democrats had been urgently pushing for permanent legal status for nearly 800,000 so-called Dreamerscovered by DACA.

Trump told reporters on Wednesday that immigrants would morph into citizens over the next decade if they met certain requirements.

If somebodys worked hard, if theyve done a great job, it gives you an incentive to do a great job, Trump told reporters at an impromptu meeting at the White House before departing for Davos, Switzerland, according to the Daily CallerTheyve worked hard, Theyve done terrifically, whether they have a little company, or whether they work, whatever theyre doing, if they done a great job, I think its a nice thing to have the incentive after a period of time to become a citizen.

The memo states that immigrants would have clear requirements for work, education and good moral character in order to be eligible. Their status could be revoked in the event of criminal conduct or public safety and national security concerns, public charge, fraud, etc.

Trumps proposal calls on lawmakers to end the Visa Lottery program and use those visas to reduce the backlog of family members and high-skilled workers. The administration is seeking to promote the migration of nuclear families by limiting family sponsorships to spouses and minor children only. The cha...

Cancer Treatment Drugs Have Increased in Price By About 1,400 Percent Awareness Act

Each year, more and more people are diagnosed with cancer.  In 2012 8.2 million people worldwide lost their lives to this terrible disease.

This is alarming when you really look into how much cancer treatment costs. With no generic drugs to challenge the ones on the market, there isnt much choice for those who have to use them. Since 2013 the price of one cancer drug has risen up to 1,400%. Could you imagine?

According to the Wall Street Journal, a capsule of Lomustine cost about fifty bucks back in 2013, this being expensive but not too terribly bad. Sadly since a company called NextSource bought the rights to this drug in 2013 the price has risen to almost $800! I know, insane isnt it?!

NextSource has increased the price nine times in about 5 whole years. Prices of the drug that this company actually renamed Gleostine have increased BIG TIME. While NextSource claims they price this drug in relation to the benefits it provides, development costs, and regulatory fees you and I both know very well that is a load of shit.

Professor Henry Friedman, a Neuro-oncologist at Duke University actually told the Independent as follows:

This is simply price gouging. People are not going to be able to afford it, or theyre going to pay a lot of money and have financial liability.

While the Independent says that the US Food and Drug Administration is working to encourage others to produce generic versions as many patents have expired but who knows what will come of that. On top of this, the FDA is sending out warning letters to companies that advertise their products as able to treat cancer. This would not be an issue if they were only sending them to those who were lying about the benefits of their products but they are even sending them to those who can back their products with numerous studies.

Big Pharma is really something else I cannot stand the way those who are ill get treated in current times. We should NOT be having to spend so much to stay alive, its pretty much pay these outrageous prices or die and that is not okay. Would you want to lose your loved one to cancer because he or she couldnt afford treatment? Far too many of us have been impacted by this kind of thing.

Gaining a Better Understanding of Multiple Personality Disorder Awareness Act

Multiple Personality Disorder or Dissociative Identity Disorder is a very real and under-mentioned condition in which a persons identity is separated into more than one personality. These people can have merely two personalities or even twenty or more.

Dissociative Identity Disorder or DID is intense and can be overwhelming to the person with it as well as those around him/her. DID according to Psychology Today, reflects a failure to integrate various aspects of identity, memory, and consciousness into a single multidimensional self. While one primary identity or host carries the persons given name and whatnot, the others do at times take control. Its like their mind is a car with the passengers taking turns driving.

Now to begin with symptoms of this disease were things like contortions, fainting, impaired consciousness, and convulsions. People with DID often describe feelings of sudden depersonalization. They hear voices and experience strong emotions they cannot control. DID is not something we understand, even now, but those with it do frequently mention having experienced severe physical and sexual abuse during childhood.

Autumn Asphodel, a very established YouTuber posted a couple videos of introductions with her alters just a couple years ago and after watching those I could not breathe, things were so intense and complicated. Autumn has quite a few alters, each of which are quite different. All of her alters have a purpose and I believe this is something we need to remember when facing someone who has multiple personality disorder.

She has 2 protectors, 1 sexual alter, and many more. While she may come off as fine in a lot of her videos when things come down to it she is feeling a lot on the inside. Autumn isnt even her host, it is her mask that shields her from the rest of the world. To learn more about this please check out the video below.

Everything Is Going to Be Fine ~ NO ~ Everything Will Be Amazingly Unbelievably Fine! The Event Chronicle

Some Clarification and Repetition Re. Cobra Update 16 Jan 2018 and Goldfish Report Interview

By Therese Zumi Sumner

Depending upon at which point you discovered the information from the RM via Cobra you might have different takes reactions to this new update. Older readers will know that there is amazing progress being made with each new update even if we too feel frustration at times. This is the first point in time when a full-scale war is now ongoing between the Forces of Light ~ The Galactic Confederation + The Ashtar Command and the Chimera led forces of darkness in close proximity to this planet. You need to have a basic knowledge of the details of how our solar system and galaxy looks to see the progress. Those of you who have followed this narrative closely will recall the terrible years from 1996 until 2000-2001 when a full-scale war also took place underground unknown to humanity. Without the assistance of our Galactic Family then we simply would not exist now, or if we did, we would all of us exist as real slaves {Yes we are that now too} in total living hell in the so called NWO planned hell on Earth. More recently there has also been full-scale war taking place between the forces of Light and darkness but then it was in our solar system. The entire solar system including our moon is now free of the dark forces and the battle is raging here now in sublunar space. Cobra said in this latest update that;

Operation Mjolnir is in full effect since November 2017. 

In sublunar space, the Light Forces that belong to Galactic Confederation are approaching all members of various dark factions in a no-nonsense manner, giving them an option to accept the Light or else be taken to the Galactic Center for restructuring:

Some readers have questioned the information regarding the underground bases train networks etc. Hearing about this faction called the Illuminati Breakaway Complex (IBC) and its Draconian allies together numbering in the 200,000s, was a lot for some new readers to stomach giving them a feeling that will we ever get there what next? I will attempt to put this into perspective for many confused and frustrated new and older readers. Here is what Cobra tells us; I have darkened some of this info;

Mike Quinsey Channeling his Higher Self -- January 26, 2018 Operation Disclosure

Mike Quinsey Channeling his Higher Self 26 January 2018

Source: Tree of the Golden Light



It seems apparent that the battle by the dark Ones to retain some kind of power on the Earth reached new levels when they attempted to destroy Hawaii and Japan. However, their nuclear devices were stopped from operating in accordance with orders from the Forces of Light that control events on and off the Earth. Certainly great numbers of people who have been working against those of Earth, have been arrested and placed where they can no longer cause trouble. It is a mopping up exercise that will eventually make the dark Ones incapable of interfering with the changes that have placed the Earth on a path of Light, to freedom and abundance. Much is in place ready to go ahead once the orders are given and even now the activities of the dark Ones are being curtailed to lessen their ability to cause delay.

Matters cannot revert to events as they were prior to the marker of 2012, those times have now passed and it can no longer go back to what was normal in that old cycle. You are well into the new cycle and now have the full backing of the Forces of Light, and matters will continue to progress for the betterment of all. Outwardly the world is in turmoil but as you will begin to see, much that is being done behind the scenes is preparing the way for a giant step forward into the New Age. Your patience will be well rewarded, and before long you should see the first signs of welcome changes that are associated with the establishment of a peaceful nation, that has the wellbeing of the people at heart. It has been planned well in advance and all over the world new innovations wait for the opportunity to be introduced. It will be a time when the negative forces have been subdued and unable to stop the intended changes taking place.

Every soul that is of the Light is contributing to the progress being made, by keeping positive and spreading the Light and Love. It is the most powerful force in the Universe and cannot be stopped or delayed any longer. Already the vibrations have started to noticeably increase and as they so, it has the effect of lessening the power of the negative energies. There is clearly much of it that is remaining in those countries that have been the centre of war, bu...

Bread, jobs and freedom: A conversation with Soheil Asefi about the street protests in Iran, neoliberal policies and Imperialist threats. Lefteast

Soheil Asefi is an independent leftist journalist and academic. At a very young age, he started writing articles and working for various media and publications, both in cyber and print media. As part of his work, he covered the Majlis [Iranian parliament] and has interviewed numerous high-ranking government officials in Iran. He was arrested in 2007 and spent several months at the Evin prison in Tehran, mostly in solitary confinement at the notorious 209 ward. After being temporary released on bail and barred from continuing his professional work and education in Iran, he left Iran for Germany as a writer in exile. To return to academia, he moved to New York City to study at The New School for Social Research. While in exile, he has written extensively on political agency in exile, international human rights, imperialism and the dimensions of ongoing neoliberalization in Iran. He can be reached on Twitter @SoheilAsefi. Mattia Gallo conducted this interview on January 12, 2018 and generously offered it to LeftEast.

What is the main difference between the 2009 protests of the Green Wave movement and those of today?

S.A: The main difference between what has been branded in the Western mainstream media as the Green Movement in 2009 and the recent protests, named the bread, jobs and freedom uprisings, is the significant presence of the urban poor on the streets across the country; it was indeed a unique phenomenon in the history of Iran that a wave of protests spontaneously and simultaneously swept into small towns and big cities. There were 70 to 80, according to unverified reports, across all of the countrys provinces. In 2009, the Iranian establishment or the Nezam tried to heat up the cold process of elections by arranging televised electoral debates. Holding a high turn-out election would pull the desired rabbit out of the hat, that is, the re-election of Ahmadinejad, who was very close to the main foreign macro-policies and domestic nuclear policies of the regime and personally close to Ayatollah Khamenei. However, the entire scenario did not happen as such.The dire political and economic situation brought out part of the silent population to the stage with the hope of reform through Mousavi and Karroubi. All of this was happening at a time when neither of the two reformist candidates, nor Ahmadinejad had any structured economic plans or ways out of the crisis except the prescriptions of the IMF. Thanks to the Persian propaganda apparatus in the West such as the BBC Persian and the VOA and the rest, the Green Movement soon became a business in Washington, London, Berlin, New York and Paris where some claimed to be the representatives of the religious refo...

Discover Your Lunar Eclipse Personality With this Simple Quiz (Quiz) Awareness Act

As you all most likely know there is a lunar eclipse coming on January 31st, and it will be here before you know it.  With this lunar eclipse comes a lot of energy. This is something we should all be aware of.

While the full moon usually makes us all act a bit out of character it is nothing like what this lunar eclipse is going to bring. If you are someone who acts oddly during astrological events like this one you may need to take this quiz more than anyone else. There is a lot in store for all of us and to be honest, that is a bit of an understatement.

You see, these energies are going to be quite conflicting as this moon in itself is going to be a super blue blood moon. From this, we will be gaining a lot of new beginnings but also holding onto the past and overcoming things like never before. Really embrace these energies and let them work their magic on you. Fighting them will only make things more complicated than they have to be.

There is not much to it, let these energies do their jobs. Nothing bad ever comes from them. They are overwhelmingly positive when doing what it is they set out to do. The only pain associated comes from our resistance to them. For some reason, as humans we tend to run from the things that make us uncomfortable, this can be a problem.

If you resist, you will inevitably be overcome and merely exhaust yourself in the process. If you are anything like me, you probably also are already feeling bits of this energy even now. This is because as the energies make their way here to Earth they bounce off of those who are highly sensitive and cling to those who absorb. Yes, I am talking about empaths. If you know any empaths they probably have already mentioned this to you at least a time or two.

Take a look below to find out what your lunar eclipse personality is and what it means for you. There are four possible outcomes each one a bit different from the next.  The energies I am experiencing have really brought me out of my comfort zone and into something interesting, what do you think is in-store for yourself?

Iran Proposes a Path to Peace in the Middle East MintPress News

In an article published by the Financial Times on Monday, Irans Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif laid out the countrys proposed framework for bringing stability to the Middle East region.

ISIS displayed the darkest depths of human evil, Zarif wrote.
Yet it also provided an opportunity to come together to battle an existential threat. The cooperative relationships forged in this fight can usher in a new era. We need new approaches and new terminology to make sense of a world which is transitioning to a post-western global order. Here are two concepts to shape the emerging paradigm in west Asia: the idea of a strong region, and security networking, whereby small and large countries even those with historical rivalries contribute to stability.

It appears that Irans significant contribution to ISIS defeat and demise coupled with its new injection as a major player to be reckoned with in the Middle East has given the country newfound confidence. Iran is using its battlefield success to propose a new vision for the Middle East one that would allegedly include open dialogue and cooperation.

Zarif continues:

The objective of a strong region as opposed to a quest for hegemony and the exclusion of other actors  is rooted in recognizing the need to respect the interest of all stakeholders. Any domineering effort by one country is not only inappropriate but essentially impossible: those who insist on following that path create instability. The arms race in our region is an instance of this kind of destructive rivalry: siphoning vital resources into the coffers of arms manufacturers has contributed nothing to achieving peace and security. Militarism has only served to fuel disastrous adventurism. [emphasis added]

Whether or not Zarif is genuine, taking his words at face value suggests he is proposing that countries in the region come together to form common interests and fight common enemies rather than focusing squarely on their differences.

Provocative Artwork Reverses Roles Between Humans and Animals Waking Times

Vic Bishop, Staff Writer
Waking Times 

One of the most effective techniques psychologists use in conflict resolution is role reversal, which helps people to see the others perspective and to empathize with them. Empathy is something that is seriously deficient in our modern world, especially when it comes to the treatment of animals.

From factory farming and concentrated animal feeding operations, to big hunting and ivory poaching, to ocean bottom trawling and dolphin slaughters, to the incineration of rainforests, animals in general have a tough lot here on planet earth with all of us humans.

Art in our culture often fills the role of devils advocate, helping us to see things which may be right in front of our eyes but that we refuse to acknowledge. Artist Barbara Daniels uses her artwork to help us see the truth about our relationship with animals, and her drawings and paintings are insanely captivating.

From the artist, Barbara Daniels website:

Imagine our modern society with the roles of humans and animals reversed. What would it look like? How would it feel to be dominated by another species? My current artwork strives to answer these questions, drawing inspiration from real world situations and events.

 

The idea of exploring our relationships with animals through role reversal evolved from a sketch on a napkin in a Strasbourg Caf. After moving from California to Berlin in 2013, it became my primary artistic focus and led to the creation of the painting Happy Farms and the ongoing series Dominion over Man. [Barbara Daniels]

Her most revered painting is called, Happy Farms, and is shown in graphic detail in a video, here. A sampling of some of her illustrations follows. All images are copyright of Barbara Daniels Art 2017.

The Russiagate Stakes Are Extreme The Daily Sheeple

wikileaks-no-russians

The Republicans delay in releasing the summary of the House Intelligence Committees Russiagate investigation is giving weight to the presstitutes claim that the report is not being released, because it is a hack attempt at a Trump coverup that is not believable. Only Republicans are stupid enough to put themselves in such a situation.

Readers ask me why the summary memo is not released if it is real. There must be some reasons besides the stupidity of Republicans. Yes, that is so. Among the many reasons that might be blocking release are:

1) Republicans are very national security conscious. They dont want to provide precedents for the release of classified information.
2) Many Republican congressional districts host installations of the military/security complex. Upsetting a large employer and directing campaign financing to a challenger is a big consideration.
3) The George W. Bush/Dick Cheney regime was a neoconservative regime. One consequence is that Republicans are influenced by neoconservatives who stress the alleged Russian threat.
4) The Israel Lobby can unseat any member of the House and Senate. The Israel Lobby is allied with the neoconservatives and this alliance intends to keep the US militarily active against perceived threats to Israels hegemony in the Middle East and against Russia, which supports Syria and Iran, countries perceived as threats by Israel.
5) Many Republicans are themselves invested in false Russiagate allegations against Trump and would like to replace him with Pence. Other Republicans believe that Trump is undermining Washingtons expensively-purchased foreign alliances and, thereby, undermining US power.

Many Americans do not seem to understand what is at stake. What America is confronted with is a coup conspiracy organized by top officials of the Obama Justice Department, FBI, CIA, the Hillary DNC, and the presstitute media to overturn the result of a democratic election and remove the president from office. The basis of the coup is a fake dossier purchased for money that consists of unsupported allegations against Trump and that was used to obtain warrants from the FISA count to spy on Trump and various associates hoping to find something that can be used against Trump. Regardless, the false allegations could be fed to the CIAs media assets and used to create a scandal requiring a special prosecutor to investigate Russiagate. Once the investigation was under way, the presstitutes kept the scandal a...

President Trump declassified the complete 2016 Cert FISC Memo Opin Order Apr 2017
 

The utter farce of the Mueller investigation into Trump collusion with Russia demonstrates the most obscene and overwhelming pattern of government deceit and deflection in decades. Enough has been written on this trolling probe to convince sincere and honest people that the protection racket thugs are running a confidence game against the populace and has abandoned any prospect of justice. Still, the fake news gatekeepers that select what is suitable for the apathetic public to hear see or read keeps the fairy tale narrative going to prevent looking into the true crimes committed by the cabal of establishment globalists.

This 1983 Demo Says So Much About Apples Past, Present, And Future Fast Company

When Apple showed off two new computers to Boston computer nerds in 1983, it was historic in ways both obvious and unexpected.

On the evening of January 26, 1983, as a technology-smitten Boston University freshman, I attended the monthly meeting of the Boston Computer Society, which included a demo of Apples brand-new Lisa system. Though I know that I came away enormously impressed, I dont exactly recall the event like it was yesterday. Actually, just one element was permanently etched onto my brain cells: the moment when the Lisas bitmapped, proportional, user-selectable typefaces flashed on screen. It was a mind-bender given that other PCslike my beloved Atari 400were capable only of displaying a single fixed-width font of no elegance whatsoever.

Ugandans Grow Anxious Over Incidents of Deadly Viral Fever The Fifth Column

(GV) The death of nine-year-old Bridget Nalunkuuma in the central Ugandan town of Nakaseke has rattled residents who fear the girl may have suffered from Crimean-Congo Hemorrhagic Fever.

Eight other  people have reportedly died in recent months after experiencing similar symptoms.

Present in Sub-Saharan Africa, parts of the Middle East and Asia, Crimean-Congo Hemorrhagic Fever is transmitted through insect bites or direct contact with bodily fluids of an infected person or animal. It bears symptoms similar to Ebola, the deadly viral infection that killed 11,217 people in three West African countries in 2014. But they are not in the same viral family.

According to the World Health Organization, Crimean-Congo Hemorrhagic Fever (CCHF) can have a fatality rate of up to 40% of people infected. There is no vaccine for the disease.

Multiple media reported that the cadaver of the nine-year-old girl was tested for Crimean-Congo Hemorrhagic Fever and the results came back positive.

Authorities took precautions consistent with the disease before collecting and burying the body, as seen in photographs taken and...

Chinas Karmas A Bitch Meme Features Magic, Instant Glow-Ups Fast Company

A creative new meme is spreading throughout China, and it has people reinventing themselves with spontaneous makeovers.

Toward the end of 2017, a lot of people felt run ragged by a historically chaotic year. The evidence was all over Twitter, where the Me at the Beginning of 2017 vs Me at the End of 2017 meme showed off clever side-by-side images of popular public figures looking their best and worst. (An archetypal example might be Leonardo DiCaprio at the top of Titanic, right next to Leo at the end of The Revenant. It was a tough year, indeed.) Its 2018 now, though, and many are hoping it wont just be 2017, Part Two. To that end, a new more uplifting meme is now surging in China, and its pretty much the opposite of Me vs Me.

Local News Warns of a Fourth Snowfall and Geoengineering for Houston Waking Times

Terence Newton, Staff Writer
Waking Times 

The weather is doing some unusual things this year, and there is no consensus on what is bringing about such dramatic changes to our climate. Is it global warming, climate change, ocean warming, or maybe geoengineering?

The gulf port city of Houston, TX, the fourth largest city in the United States, has already seen three snowfalls so far this year, something that has only happened once in recorded history, in 1973. And considering that February is still to come, which is historically the month most likely to bring snow to the area, local Houston news station, KHOU, is warning of a record-breaking fourth snowfall.

That would be a first in Houstons recorded history, dating back to the late 1800s  and its possible early next month. Certainly, if you go far enough back in geologic time you could find a year when its happened in this spot on the planet, but its absolutely unheard of from the perspective of people actually living here. [Source]

Such bizarre weather as this in Houston follows the unbelievable flooding and devastation brought to the area last summer when Hurricane Harvey dumped biblical amounts rain on the region, causing unprecedented catastrophic flooding.

So, the question is, if such dramatic changes in climate are indeed anthropogenic, then are we talking about the secondary effects of human impact, or are we talking about a direct influence on the weather, such as geoengineering?

Just a few short years ago a supposition such as geoengineering would have instantly invoked the catch-all thought-stopping label conspiracy theory, but today we find that more and more mainstream news outlets are open to the idea of weather modification. It actually seems almost as if they...

Lionfish Management, Practitioner Exchange La Paz Group

The four Colombian exchange delegates with Phil Karp and Jen Chapman, Blue Ventures Country Coordinator in Belize.

As in other fields of capacity building for development there is a growing recognition within the marine conservation community of the power of practitionerpractitioner exchange. Whether they take the form of barefoot exchanges between fishers, or more formal exchanges involving Marina Protected Area (MPA) managers and policymakers, such exchanges are emerging as an extremely effective way of sharing, replicating, adapting and scaling up successful solutions to the challenges of marine protection and avoiding repetition of unsuccessful approaches. Practitioner exchanges are particularly effective for sharing how to or tacit knowledge about solutions, as such tips and tricks tend not be fully recorded in written descriptions or case studies.

Practitioner exchange as a form of capacity building represents a departure from more traditional approaches such as technical assistance or deployment of expert advisors. In the latter case, external experts are relied on to share successful solutions with which they are familiar only through research, and may therefore lack a complete understanding of the full range of factors and potential pitfalls that could influence the successful implementation of an approach elsewhere.

15 Syrian Refugees Found Frozen to Death On Their Way to Lebanon Blog Baladi

Syrian refugees are still trying to run away from their war-torn country and seek refuge in Lebanon but ever since the borders were closed, theyre being smuggled in through dangerous mountainous roads. More than ten refugees, including children, were found frozen to death last week by the Lebanese Civil Defense. A 30 year old woman was identified as well as a three-year old child among others. The group had been abandoned by smugglers apparently, lost their way and were trapped by the fierce storm that hit the area.

Sadly enough, the news didnt make a buzz here and Ive barely heard any reactions or comments on that matter, which is quite sickening. Whats even more worrying is that no one knows exactly the numbers making the crossing into Lebanon, or if there are other frozen dead bodies lying in these open mountainous areas.

Can the authorities stop the smuggling? Its almost impossible to close all border crossings but we could reopen the legal crossings and organize the entry of refugees but we all know thats not gonna happen because everyones too busy exploiting the refugee card for political gains.

All in all, its just worrying how weve gotten used to stories of refugees including children and women dying in horrible circumstances and how powerless weve become in managing this never ending refugee crisis.

"The mainstream media (MSM) is finally beginning to cover the FBI/DOJ scandal to attack President Trump and his Administration, but they are doing it as a big conspiracy theory in the face of overwhelming publicly reported evidence of corruption and law breaking.

Senator Ron Johnson stated this week there was a secret society within the FBI and DOJ that has off site meetings to map out survival strategy at the FBI. Other Congressmen, who have seen an unreleased memo naming names of high ranking members of the FBO and DOJ, say jail time is coming for many because of corruption and crime. The crimes they are referring to involve exonerating Hillary Clinton in the face of obvious law breaking and attacking the Trump Administration with a phony dossier paid for by Hillary Clinton.

Additional movement also took place along the Pacific Rim from Japan at the least back though thousands of years which also support much earlier dates for movement across the Atlantic..

Anarchists in the Trump Era: Scorecard, Year One : Achievements, Failures, and the Struggles Ahead CrimethInc.

January 20, 2018 marked the conclusion of the first year of the Trump eraa string of back-to-back crises that made unprecedented demands on US anarchists. Despite limited numbers and resources, we rose admirably to those challenges. Congratulations on a roller coaster of a year! Now its time to analyze how we succeeded, identify the opportunities we missed, andabove allprepare for what comes next.

Over the past year, weve disrupted the far-right attempt to legitimize a more totalitarian strategy of governance and pushed back the threat of a street-level fascist movement. Neither of these victories are complete, but we achieved them against incredible odds. In 2018, well have to continue fighting those battles, but well also contend with centrists bent on re-legitimizing the political system, a resurgent authoritarian Left, and the next wave of ecological and geopolitical catastrophes. In order to succeed, well have to broaden our focus and expand our range of tactics.

For a detailed timeline of anarchist activity throughout 2017, consult this report by Its Going Down; Spencer Sunshine has also composed a timeline of fascist activity. The following analysis is hardly comprehensive; for example, it passes over anarchist participation in disaster relief, which played an important role in demonstrating our ethos of mutual aid this past year.

Dawn of a New Apocalypse

The election of Donald Trump marked the ascendancy of a new nationalist strategy for managing the state. Trumps nationalism is not centered in old-fashioned economic protectionism, but a neo-fascist model in which the violence necessary to sustain neoliberal capitalism is directed disproportionately at those outside the gated communities of citizenship, whiteness, and patriarchy. From the opening of his campaign, it was clear that he had no real plan to reverse the course of global development and bring factory jobs back to the US. Rather, he was promising voters the wages of whiteness, and they bought it hook, line, and sinker.

According to modern psychiatry, non-conformity is now a mental illness The Crazz Files

To those who often choose to go against the norm, be warned: The psychiatric profession just dubbed non-conformity a disorder.

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, or DSM, defines oppositional defiant disorder, or ODD, as an ongoing pattern of disobedient, hostile and defiant behavior. Basically, it just labeled anyone who deviates from what is regarded as the norm mentally ill.

17 Things Only Sarcastic People Will Understand Awareness Act

As a sarcastic person, people are either pissed by the things you say or they laugh their asses off, there isnt really any in-between. Dont get me wrong, there is a time and place for every joke, but sarcastic people just cant help it sometimes.

If you are anything like me then you know the following struggles I am going to list all too well. How many of these things resonate with you? Its almost like sarcastic people are a breed all their own.

17 Things Sarcastic People Know All Too Well:

1. Meeting someone who doesnt know what sarcasm is and how stupid they think you are.

Have you ever met someone who took your every word literally? These people think that you are actually as stupid as you are joking about being and it is both hilarious and annoying. People like this drive me up the wall. No, Susan, I dont really think I can fly stick a sock in it.

2. Dealing with people who take things too literally.

Learn how to take a joke. I should not be having to explain myself to you. Did you not notice everybody else laughing?

3. Trying to hide your hatred for others.

For a sarcastic person hiding hatred is impossible. They always make themselves known through their sarcasm. Do you target those you hate? I know, you just cant help it.

4. The struggle of being sarcastic through text.

Sadly, texting is just not designed for sarcastic people. This is the most real struggle ever. Its almost as if sending a voice clip might be the better option.

5. Your attitude problem.

Do people often say you have a problem with your attitude? This one gets under my skin pretty bad. Come on now people, a little sarcasm never hurt anyone.

6. Just Kidding

Having to say just kidding when people react badly. Shit, learn how to take a joke. I hate having to say this, but find myself doing so often.

7. When people call you crazy.

People do this to me all the time and I hate it. I find my sense of humor quite refreshing. I wish the rest of the world wasnt so bland.

8. Mocking others without realizing it.

I tend to mock people more often than I dont, and the truth is, I just cant help it. This makes a lot of enemies for me but Im sure it does the same for you as well. Its not easy being sarcastic.

9. No one gets you.

No one seems to get you even though you are truly hilarious. This is truly a shame, and there is just no sense in it.

10. People not taking you seriously.

Having to repeat yourself over and over again until someone finally realizes you arent joking. Just because you are sarcastic doesnt mean you are unable to be serious. Come on now!

11. Being the only one to trul...

DOJ office says it has found 'missing' text messages of FBI officials | 25 Jan 2018 | Months of 'missing' text messages between two FBI officials have been located, according a letter obtained by The Hill. Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz told Sens. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) in a letter that the messages spanning from December 2016 to May 2017, previously thought missing due to a technological glitch affecting FBI phones, have been found. "The [Office of the Inspector General] has been investigating this matter, and, this week, succeeded in using forensic tools to recover text messages from FBI devices," the letter read. The messages between FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page have come under scrutiny primarily by GOP lawmakers who say that they are proof of political bias against President Trump in the Russia investigations and in the FBI overall.

How to Prevent Sexual Harassment Starting in Early Childhood Awareness Act

As you most likely have noticed sexual harassment and further are things that happen quite often in current time. Women and men across the globe are forced to experience things they should never have to.

According to the Wayne State University School of Social Work, there is a lot that can be done about this. Just because we are hearing about these things in more recent years does not mean they did not happen before. More and more people are finding the strength to speak out and I believe that is amazing.

When it comes to preventing sexual attacks and sexual harassment in general, you have to start in the last place you normally would, your own homes. Teens and young adults need to know what to do when facing these kinds of things and they also need to know that paying attention to their surroundings could save their lives and their psyche. However, we shouldnt wait till our children are teens before bringing this subject up. Our children need to be taught from a young age that respect is an important thing.

We must teach our sons and daughters that harassing people sexually is not okay. Sexual issues like these are something we ALL should be concerned with. Even online we are at risk and our children are at risk. This world has seriously been in a very dark time lately.

Teaching Our Children

Have you ever forced your child to hug a family member they didnt want to hug? This is not something we should be doing. Our children should never be forced to ignore personal boundaries especially in regards to their own bodies. They should be aware that they can and should express their emotions. They need to make it clear they do not want to be touched and speak assertively regardless of the situation.

Both boys and girls can be the victims or the abusers in these kinds of situations. Prevention has to begin early. The quicker you get this drilled into their heads the better. We must do our best to promote healthy sexual behavior.

Sexual abuse is an issue across the globe and it is an issue men and women are both dealing with. Dont let your child grow up thinking that these things are okay. Sexual harassment on any level is disgusting and should without a doubt be dealt with accordingly. We are all humans and equal at that; we ALL deserve respect. Teach your children to be the people you know in your heart they can be.

For more information on this please check out the videos below. Sexual harassment is a very real issue and so is rape. There is no better time than the present.

11 Early Warning Signs of a Heart Attack That You Shouldnt Ignore Awareness Act

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report that approximately 610,000 Americans die from heart disease every year, or 1 in every 4 deaths. In fact, a total of 735,000 Americans will have a heart attack this year!

Know the warning signs and symptoms of a heart attack so that you can act fast if you or someone you know might be having a heart attack, the CDC writes in a post about heart disease facts. The chances of survival are greater when emergency treatment begins quickly.

A 2005 survey revealed that while 92% of Americans recognized that chest pain is a major symptom of a heart attack, only 27% were able to identify all major symptoms and knew to call 911 in the event that someone is having a heart attack. Increase your chances of survival by educating yourself on what to watch for. Early detection will allow you to seek medical attention before it is too late.

Here are 11 early warning signs of a heart attack that you shouldnt ignore:

1 Flu-Like Symptoms

Often overlooked, especially during cold and flu symptoms, many of the early warning signs of an oncoming heart attack mimic those of the flu, including fever and fatigue. While you may actually just have the flu, if these symptoms persist, especially among older individuals, then you should pay attention.

2 Shortness of Breath

If your heart is unable to pump enough blood to the lungs then they will struggle to function. This will lead to feeling short of breath and will ultimately lead to bigger problems as the lungs fail to provide the brain with the ox...

Mueller is After Trump for Obstruction not Russia Armstrong Economics

 

Robert Mueller is trying to build a possible obstruction case to take down Trump. There is no case for a conspiracy with Russia. Mueller is certainly not a fan of Trump as the rumors paint it in Washington. Nothing would crown his career more than taking down a president.

Trump is often his own worst enemy. He clearly does not understand the legal system. Granted, he knew there was no Russian connection. If there had been, it would have been leaked to CNN and it would be around the world months ago. Mueller, in my opinion, has abused his entire authority for he was charged to investigate a Russian connection. That failed, so he has to find something to do to justify all the money he gets.

Trump had ordered the firing last June of Mueller according to leaks. He eventually backed-off after the White House counsel threatened to resign rather than carry out the directive. This is being called the West Wing Confrontation and Mueller learned about the episode in the process of interrogating former and current senior White House officials.

Mueller is examining a possible obstruction case to bring down Trump and chalk one up for the Bureaucrat team. The real question is rather blunt. Is this now a personal vendetta since there was no Russian connection? If a special prosecutor is appointed to investigate lets say you killed someone and that proves to be false, should they then make a case against you for tax evasion just so they win something? Is that abuse of power itself? Seems to me Congress should be investigating Mueller for abuse of power.

British Pound How High is High? Armstrong Economics

QUESTION: In your year-end report, you said the resistance in the pound for 2018 was at the 14500-14600 level throughout 2018. We stopped at the mid 14300 level. Is this it?

ANSWER: In 2016, the British pound elected the Yearly Bearish Reversal at 14000. It is normal to retest that level since we closed 2016 at 12321 well below the Reversal. Therefore, the 1% rule applied and we should retest that Reversal before following through. That is what 2018 is all about. The next big turning point for the pound against the greenback will come in 2019. However, the next major crisis point will be 2021.

As for right now, we have a Directional Change next week. Therefore, failing to exceed this weeks high next week means we can retest support into the week of February 5th. Thereafter the week of 19th will come into play and volatility will rise for the end of February. The major technical resistance is in the 15000 zone. Only a closing above the 16700 area would reverse the long-term trend.

Mnuchen Calls for Weaker Dollar Trump Stronger? Armstrong Economics

QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong; You have repeatedly said that the USA wants a lower dollar while Europe thinks a strong currency is better. You said the dollar would decline first into 2018. That seems to be spot on. After Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin statement that a weaker dollar is best for USA, the dollar sold off. Why is there is a huge difference between the USA and Europe with respect to currency values? Will the dollar continue lower?

HD

ANSWER: First of all, you can bet that Mnuchin had a little help from his friends in NYC who piled on short positions before his speech. Trump later came out and said he wanted a strong dollar. The USA had also wrongly believed that a strong currency meant a strong economy. During the Great Depression, Roosevelts Brains Trust were all against devaluing the dollar. Why? It is the bondholders they seek to protect not the people. A devaluation of a currency means that you pay back with cheaper dollars.

Europe, on the other hand, went through two World Wars. Their currencies went to zero. Politicians used the value of the currency and proof they did a good job and should be reelected. No American politician could run and claim that the dollar is up against Mexico, Europe, and Japan so vote for them.

I became probably the largest FOREX adviser in the world because I was an American. When I was going to open up offices in Europe, I went to lunch with one of the heads of a major Swiss bank and ran a few names by him like European advisers etc. to call our European operation assuming there was much anti-Americanism in the air. He asked me to name one European analyst. I was embarrassed for I could not back in 1985. He said there were none. Because currencies were used by politicians, it was unpatriotic to forecast any European currency would decline. He told me that was why everyone was using our firm You dont care if the dollar goes up or down!

Beyond Imagination: Uranium One

JANUARY 11, 2018

Source: Chronicles Magazine | By Anne Williamson



The multilayered story surrounding Uranium Onethe former South African, then Canadian, and now Russian company, of which both Bill and Hillary Clinton and their family foundation are the enriched beneficiarieshas all the usual elements of a typical Clinton scandal.

A talented con man, Bill Clinton perfected his game in Arkansas. Through his control over state contracts, regulatory agencies, and judicial appointments, the creation of public credit and of agencies like the Arkansas Development and Finance Authority and their misuse, then-Governor Clinton was able to reward his allies, punish his enemies, and insert his political machine into nearly every endeavor, public and private, statewide. Clinton nailed down the couples franchise by continually getting himself re-elected governor of Arkansas, while his spouse handled the paperwork at the Rose Law Firm.

When Bill and Hillary made the move from Little Rock to Washington, the territory under their influence was enlarged, and the public cash pots at their disposal grew significantly, but their modus operandi remained the same. The only thing that changed when Hillary began her adventures in the U.S. Senate, and then at the State Department, was that she was now the one with political power, and Bill became the ornamental figure.

Uranium Ones predecessor is a Canadian company, UrAsia Energy Ltd., founded in 2005 by Canadian mining financier Frank Giustra. By mysterious means Giustra was able to fill what was no more than a shell company with the rights to three uranium mines located in Kazakhstan, a former Soviet republic that is fantastically rich in just about everything, including uranium. Bill Clinton appears to have played a significant role in smoothing the rough edges of Giustras good fortune by supporting Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayevs appointment to a U.N. agency dedicated to validating elections, a p.r. coup for Nazarbayev.

Now hopefully we can soon get national laws that prevent anybody from being forced to take ANY shot! That's what the demons in the medical establishment fear most because now the sheep do it because they've been lied to and told they have no choice! God gives you the choice what to put in your body. The government, companies and hospitals can never be allowed to inject anybody including doctors and nurses against their will. That's the definition of tyranny.

"The Deep States worst nightmare was never that Donald Trump would improve relations with Russia. What keeps it awake, shaking and screaming in the darkness, is the prospect of exposure and prosecution for decades of criminality. For the first time since John F. Kennedy, the Deep State is being challenged. An inflection point may have been reached. If so, legal developments will take on a life of their own, ultimately beyond the control of congressional committees, Sessions, Trump, or anyone else.

Trump has expressed skepticism about US military interventions, NATOs usefulness and funding, and the USs hostile posture towards Russia. However, he says and tweets a lot of things, most of which are best ignored. Instead, look at what hes done, which should never be ignored. He has:

Expanding on the panspermia theory developed with the celebrated astronomer Sir Fred Hoylenamely that the building blocks of life were imported to Earth by comets in the distant pastChandra Wickramasinghe and Robert Bauval explore the latest findings in support of a cosmic origin for humanity. They detail the astrobiological discoveries of organic molecules deep in space, how microbes are incredibly resistant to the harshest conditions of spaceenabling the transfer of genes from one star system to another, and the recent recovery of microorganisms from comets still in space. They argue that the universe was born and preset with the blueprint of life and that the cosmos must be teeming with lifeforms far older and perhaps far more developed than us. They show how life arrived on our planet in the form of interstellar dust containing alien bacteria approximately 3.8 billion years ago and how later comets, meteoroids, and asteroids brought new bacterial and viral genetic material, which was vital for evolution.

Using the latest advances in physics, cosmology, and neuroscience, the authors explore how universal knowledge may be stored in human DNA and cells, and they postulate that ancient cultures, such as the pyramid builders of Egypt and the temple builders of India, may have known a way to retrieve this knowledge.

The Man Who Blew The Lid off of AREA 51 Shows off His Water Powered Car The Event Chronicle

The Man Who Blew The Lid off of AREA 51 Shows off His Water Powered Car

By Arjun Walia

Decades ago, when an individual claimed to work at a military facility that required top level security clearance and spoke about classified military secrets and technology, they were ridiculed. This is why, in some cases, they were allowed to speak and share sensitive information, because most of it was so unbelievable and easy to ridicule that, instead of the world of secrecy retaliating, they let these individuals speak their mind.

In the past, individuals blowing the whistle, regardless of whether or not their backgrounds could be verifiable, was something that didnt happen as much as it happens today. Take for example, the hundreds of high ranking ex-military and political personnel sharing their experiences with UFOs. Today, UFOs are official, as the Pentagon recently released a video of an object performing maneuvers no known aircraft can. The topic is also becoming popular within academia, as a number of peer-reviewed research articles have also emerged hinting strongly to artificial surface interventions on other bodies within our solar system, like the Moon and Mars, for example.

Who is the man in the video below? Its Bob Lazar, the one who blew the lid open on places like Area 51, a secret military base thats been used to test advanced military air-craft, and supposedly other things. Its existence was officially disclosed by the US government a few years ago, but its important to note here that there are multiple military bases located throughout the US, some even more secretive than Area 51 and some are even located beneath the ocean floor.

David Wilcock: All right. Welcome to Cosmic Disclosure. Im your host, David Wilcock, and Im here with Emery Smith.

So we were talking about this concept that you werent that surprised by the idea of very elaborate genetic hybrids being made by our government, even at the beginning of this time that you spent at Sandia Labs inside Los Alamos.

So I kind of feel like theres something missing here. How much had you been briefed on genetic hybridization programs before you ever started this particular job with these so-called salmon filets?

Emery Smith: Yeah, I was not, actually. I was a very low-classified individual at that time. So it actually didnt happen til about a year or two later, where because of what I was dissecting, or whatever, led to other briefings that led to other briefings, because a lot of these beings were connected to ships.

1 Emery Smith 1

And when I got pulled into that, then I was pulled into other things that had to do with hybridization, because I was actually told once that one of the samples WAS a hybrid, and thats how I knew they were doing hybridization.

They didnt hide it that time and during the briefing, . . .

David: Wow!

Emery: . . . and it was a group briefing, so it was exposed.

David: And what was this sample? What was it a hybrid of? What did it look like?

Emery: It was kind of like a tiger. It was a tiger-type, human-type being.

Another Carnival Cruise Ship Fails USPH Sanitation Inspection: 4 Ships in Just 2 Months Cruise Law News

Carnival Liberty Another Carnival cruise ship officially failed a recent sanitation inspection today.

I first learned that the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) finally published the failed score for the Carnival Liberty upon reading the Miami Herald's article written by Chabeli Herrera titled Another Carnival cruise was caught with dirty conditions. That makes four in two months.

I first learned that the Liberty failed the sanitation inspection by the United States Public Health (USPH) on January 6, 2018 when a crew member notified me of the failure of the inspection which took place on two days earlier, on January 4th. 

This is the fourth failed USPH inspection in under two months, following the failed inspections of the Carnival Breeze (77 score), Carnival Triumph (78 score) and the spectacular failure of the Carnival Vista (79 score) where crew members were caught hiding food and galley equipment in crew members quarters from USPH inspectors.  

The official report of the failed inspection of the Liberty (with a score of only 80), which can be retrieved here, reveals that the Liberty failed the inspection for all of the reasons which a cruise line could possibly fail such an inspection - soiled galley surfaces, dirty equipment, files in the galley's food preparation areas, dirty plates with food residue, broken dish and pot washers, improper food temperature systems, contaminated foods, corroded ovens, lack of sneeze guards, improper (low) temperatures of dishwashers, improper sanitation standards for whirlpools, and a sick crew member who continued to work although he was experiencing acute gastroenteritis (AGE) symptoms.

As we have mentioned before, it is difficult to understand why the CDC fails to timely publish the failed scores of its USPH sanitation inspection of the Carnival ships. It has been three weeks since the Carnival Liberty failed the inspection and the CDC finally published the failed score only today.  Carnival has not still bothered to prepare a "corrective action" report as required by the Vessel Sanitation Program (VSP). 

The CDC is supposed to protect the public from disease and infections due to unsanitary inspections but it does no...

Coast To Coast AM Secret Space and ET Federation with Corey Goode and Jimmy Church The Event Chronicle

By Shem El-Jamal

There have been some very interesting developments on the surface of our planet lately. According to reports, the developments off planet are just as, if not even more, interesting than what we are seeing Earth-side.

If we have read and examined the recent update written by David Wilcock and Corey Goode, we will know the possibilities of how interesting things might be at present within the various secret space programs. To add, the interviews which corresponded to this update seemed to be equally thought-provoking as the update itself.

As we may know by now, this interview hit a few snags the first time around, with regard to Coreys health. However, David Wilcock and Jimmy Church covered the task like true professional improv musicians. The show went off without a hitch, and not only were we the audience surprised at how the smooth the last-minute change was, but it sounded as though Wilcock and Church were equally surprised.

The interview with Corey himself was just as interesting as the one which David Wilcock covered. However, Coreys interview was more focused upon specific aspects of the story as well as answering listener questions. This allowed us to receive greater details from Goode which the time-frame of the previous coverage did not allow.

In contrast, the interview with Wilcock gave more of an overall perspective on the pertinent update. Personally, I found both interesting, though I would definitely recommend investing the time to read the entire update as well. It will definitely be worth it.

Breaking Interview: Lead Author of Dirty Vaccines Study Speaks Out The Event Chronicle

By Collective Evolution

This article was written by James Lyons-Weiler, PhD  for Greenmedinfo.com. Its republished here with their permission. For more information like this from Greenmedinfo, you can sign up for the newsletter here.

In a remarkable new study with potentially immediate and earth-shattering effects on the vaccine industry and the regulatory agencies that oversee their safety, researchers at the National Council of Research of Italy and the International Clean Water Institute, USA have found extensive and inexplicable widespread contamination of vaccines with particles that, according to the authors of the study, clearly should not be present.

The study, published in the International Journal of Vaccines and Vaccination, examined 30 vaccines (44 samples in total), and found particulate matter, in aggregates and clusters.  The composition of those clusters, the researchers say, are consistent with burnt waste.  They also found red blood cells of unknown origin, and extensive metal contamination, including lead, chromium and tungsten.

These findings come at time when vaccines are under increasing attack for their likely role in sudden-onset and long-term disorders, including autism, ADHD.  HPV vaccines have been linked to Guillan-Barre syndrome, premature ovarian failure (sterility).  There is also now a consistent pattern of reports of contamination of vaccines with unwanted viruses and retroviruses, residue from human and pig tissues, and pathogens like bacteria.  A...

The Soul Nebula houses several open clusters of stars, a large radio source known as W5, and huge evacuated bubbles formed by the winds of young massive stars. Located about 6,500 light years away, the Soul Nebula spans about 100 light years and is usually imaged next to its celestial neighbor the Heart Nebula (IC 1805).

Oklahomas Exemplary AMI Smart Meters Removal and Consumer Protection Bill: A Model For Other States To Follow The Event Chronicle

By Catherine J. Frompovich

You know it just had to happen!  Some scientifically-hip legislator in one of the 50 United States finally decided to introduce a bill to protect his constituents Constitutional rights guaranteed by both state and federal Constitutions, plus delineated the factual, independentnot consensusscience that radiofrequencies (RFs) from AMI Smart Meters damage health and The OCC [Oklahoma Corporation Commission] is to understand by this legislation that they work for the consumers and citizens of the State of Oklahoma and not the utility! [1]

Applause, applause, applause and many kudos to Oklahoma State House of Representatives legislator Dale Derby for introducing House Bill 2872 that would provide many legislative means of relief for utility consumers who reject AMI Smart Meters, including removal at no cost to consumers, plus many more exemplary legislative provisions sorely needed by those individuals who are compromised by and suffer with electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS) or idiopathic environmental intolerance (IEI).

Oklahoma House Bill 2872 is the most comprehensive bill Ive seen to date dealing with the horrendous draconian totalitarian AMI Smart Meter implementation against supposedly free peoples rights and/or objections to causing them problems and/or damaged health!

The Oklahoma bill is 12 pages in length, which I encourage everyone to study and also to ask your respective states Capitol legislators to introduce to provide the sorely-needed relief that has not been forthcoming from either harassing utility companies or lax and/or lackey state utility commissions.

The bills language is nothing short of all encompassing, I think, considering the totality of issues involved.  It cites independent studies confirming health harms from AMI Smart Meter radiation; defines what an electromec...

Sodden Earth
by Chet Raymo

I grew up with the Civil War, or at least with evidences of the war on every side, in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Lookout Mountain loomed over the town. My house was on the back slopes of Missionary Ridge. We swam in Chickamauga Creek. We played in the Chattanooga National Cemetery (close by my grandmother's house) where 12,000 Union dead are buried, including raiders of "The Great Locomotive Chase." The locomotive The General was on display downtown in Union Station. Orchard Knob not far away. Monuments and memorial cannons were everywhere. 

It was all rather romantic to a kid. The roar of cannons. The crackle and smoke of rifles and flash of bayonets. The Stars and Bars and Stars and Stripes flagging above the hubbub of battle. It wasn't until we read "The Red Badge of Courage" in high school that it began to dawn on us that all was not glory and grandeur.

The Worst Thing About Federal Government Shutdowns The Fifth Column

(Garrison) The second worst thing about federal government shutdowns is that theyre almost entirely meaningless theatrical productions  tales told by idiots, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing from beginning to end.

The worst thing about such shutdowns is that they end, usually in a way that undoes most of what little good they accomplished in the first place.

Im writing this on the first (and for all I know, the last) morning of the latest such shutdown. It comes after a fight over a temporary spending bill that, had it passed, would have given congressional Republicans and Democrats a few more weeks to fight over spending in the longer term.

Maybe this shutdown will last a day. Maybe it will last a week. Im guessing it will be a short one. Unlike some, its not based on a conflict between a Congress of one party  and a president of the other party, but rather simply on the inability of Mitch McConnell to whip a few Republican Senators into line.

The real effects of the shutdown, such as they are, will kick in Monday when non-essential federal government activities stop happening and the government workers associated with those activities go home on (supposedly) unpaid furlough.

Some government inspectors will temporarily stop descending on factories and other workplaces to tick off boxes on forms.

The National Park Service will hang up closed signs at gatehouses around the country.

About half of the 800,000 civilian workers at the Pentagon will stop pushing the paper that moves money from your bank accounts to the bottom lines of Boeing and Lockheed Martin. Some of those who do keep working wont be paid until the curtain falls on this particular performance of the recurring shutdown play.

Those effects will end when 51 US Senators pronounce themselves happy enough with the spending deal to flip the switch back to on, and a majority of the US House of Representatives quickly agrees that the Senate bill is close enough (for government work) to the one the House already passed.

When its over, all those government employees will go back to work. And if history is an indicator, theyll all get paid for the time they were off. And as usual, few people will ask the big question:

If all those activities that got shut down were non-essential, why are they government activities in the first place?

The case for government is, usually, that it does things that must be done and that cant be done by any other organization. Designating an activity non-essential is just another way of saying its a way of wasting money on something either unnecessary or better left to the market.

This, too, shall pass. Unfortunately.

Whats Wrong with Modern Wheat? Waking Times

Anna Hunt, Staff Writer
Waking Times

Considering the high rate of wheat consumption, one wouldnt suspect that the wheat industry has created a massive problem. Yet, looking at the facts surrounding this industry and this food source will give you pause.

The documentary Whats With Wheat examines the dynamics that shaped modern wheat and the business around it. It offers insights from many experts in the field whove conducted extensive research to help you understand why wheat has become so problematic for many people. The film gives unprecedented details of why wheat may be one of the key reasons behind many health issues.

The Wheat Dilemma

Wheat has transformed dramatically since the inception of modern industrial agriculture. Almost everything about wheat has changed. The way its raised, the hybridization, the way its processed, and the amount that were eating.

These changes have done little good when it comes to the environment and our health. First of all, through modern chemical farming, the food industry has destroyed the nutritional value of the wheat plant. In addition, the overuse of agrochemicals is slowly destroying our soil.

Chemical fertilization leaves your foods and your crops deficient in vital minerals trace elements, micronutirents, because the soil is not getting those nutrients. Your soil is becoming desertified. ~ Dr. Vandana Shiva, activist and author of Who Really Feeds the World

Furthermore, due to our over-consumption of wheat, we are also destroying the bodys ability to digest it. As a result, many people are now faced with insidious health problems. Often, it takes them years to realize that wheat is to blame.

Hannity: DOJ Is Recovering Strzoks Missing FBI Texts The Daily Sheeple

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) makes opening remarks to a panel of Department of Homeland Security officials John Wagner, deputy assistant commissioner of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection's Office of Field Operations; Anh Duong, director of Border and Maritime Division of Homeland Security's Advanced Research Projects Agency; Craig Healy, assistant director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement's National Security Investigations Division; and Rebecca Gambler,director of Homeland Security and Justice Issues of the U.S. Government Accountability Office, as they testify about the unimplemented biometric exit tracking system before the Senate Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest, in Washington, D.C., Jan. 20, 2016. (CBP Photo by Glenn Fawcett)

Fox News host Sean Hannity said Wednesday that the walls are closing in on the deep state as multiple sources within the DOJ informed him theyve begun recovering missing texts from FBI agent Peter Strzok and his mistress Lisa Page.

From Fox News:

Federal law enforcement officials had notified congressional committees that a technical glitch affected thousands of FBI cellphones between Dec. 14, 2016 and May 17, 2017. This meant that 5 months worth of texts would be missing from Strzok and Page, both of whom are under scrutiny after it was revealed that the former members of special counsel Robert Muellers team exchanged anti-Trump texts during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Hannity said sources at the DOJ told him they have begun to recover some of the texts from that time period. Specific content from those texts has not been released.

The missing messages have caused problems for the Justice Department inspector generals office.

Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Ron Johnson, R-Wis., and Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, have sent a letter to Inspector General Michael Horowitz noting that the IGs office said on Dec. 13 that it had all the messages between Strzok and Page between Nov. 30, 2016, and July 28, 2017.

Lawmakers later learned of the five-month gap.

Learning from the Big Picture: Cycle of Life Running 'Cause I Can't Fly

Learning from the Big Picture: Cycle of Life
by Madisyn Taylor, "The DailyOM"

While we are on earth we are all human beings in different phases of our lives and soul development. As we walk through the world, the people we encounter appear so different from one another. We see babies, old men, pregnant women, and teenaged boys. We know couples on the verge of marriage and lonely widows. We interact with toddlers and the terminally ill. As different as each person seems, they are all living the human experience. They are just at different places in the cycle that begins with birth and ends with death. Every phase of the cycle of life has its gifts and its challenges. Each stage is temporary and ultimately gives way to a new phase. This ephemeral quality makes each phase precious, because it will never last.

One of the wonderful qualities possessed by babies and young children is that they are unaware that a cycle of life even exists. They simply are present to wherever they happen to be right now, and they dont give much thought to the past or future.  Being around them reminds us of the joy that comes from living fully in the moment. On the opposite end of lifes cycle are our elderly role models. They are a reminder that each phase of life should be treasured. Time does pass, and we all change and grow older.

Being aware of the cycle of life and our place in it makes us wiser. As we develop a true appreciation for the phase we are in, we can savor it more. A new mother going through a difficult time with her infant can more easily embrace her challenges because she knows that her child will grow up, and she will long for this time again.  Difficult and challenging periods are inevitable, but like everything that is a part of the cycle of life they are temporary.

U.S. Blames Russia For All Chem Weapons Attacks Based On Claims From White Helmets Terrorists The Event Chronicle

By Brandon Turbeville

It seems as if the U.S. State Department has been on a continual loop ever since August, 2013 when Western-backed terrorists launched a chemical weapons attack that was subsequently blamed on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and the Syrian government by the United States and other imperialist nations assisting in the attempted destruction of Syria. Ever since 2013, when the United States almost succeeded in propagandizing the general public enough to support a direct military invasion of Syria, we have seen the U.S. State Department whining and shrieking about chemical weapons attacks conducted by the regime in Damascus against his own people, civilians, and beautiful babies on a bi-monthly basis. The tired chemical weapons line has never been able to provide the U.S. with as much payoff as it almost did in 2013, however, and, in 2018, Heather Nauerts whining and Nikki Haleys head-swinging fits at the U.N. simply dont have the same effect as Samantha Powers theatrics in the halls of the same institutions a few years ago.

Five years on, the actors may have switched places but the play remains the same. In fact, so does the stage and the dialogue. Once again, the U.S. is screaming at the top of its lungs that the Syrian military has used chemical weapons against civilians in Ghouta, outside Damascus.

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson stated that, Only yesterday more than 20 civilians, most of them children, were victims of an apparent chlorine gas attack. He stated that the alleged attacks raise serious concerns that Bashar al-Assad may be continuing to use chemical weapons against his own people.

Of course, there is absolutely no evidence that the Syrian military used chemical weapons in the attack referenced by Tillerson, nor is there any credible evidence that the Syrian government even maintains a stockpile of chemical weapons to use if it wanted to. Indeed, the only sources supporting Tillersons claims are the...

Has the US-Israeli-UK War with Iran Officially Started? The Sleuth Journal

Has the US-Israeli-UK War with Iran Officially Started? | war-with-iran | Sleuth Journal Special Interests US News War Propaganda World News

Has the US-Israeli-UK War with Iran officially started? Are the recent Iranian protests suspicious? Why were protestors critiquing Iranian foreign policy?

War with Iran is the best way to describe what is happening right now with the recent Iranian protests. Yes, the Iranian people have legitimate gripes (especially economic) with the theocratic government there, which is hardly a bastion of freedom. However, there can be no doubt that these protests are orchestrated by the same meddlesome US-Israeli axis (and you can add the UK in there too) which has been the driving force behind all Middle Eastern wars for at least 50 years. These protests are merely the latest manifestation of a continuous and incessant Anglo-Zionist policy of targeting Iran. They may ignite further conflict, or they may be quelled, but either way, you will make more sense of them by understanding the long and deep history of US, Israeli and UK interference in Iran. Right after Trump assumed office at the start of 2017, he made his intention clear that he wanted war with Iran. These protests are yet another way in which the US-Israeli-UK axis is showing it wants war with Iran  and will go to any lengths to get it.

Iranian Protests: Another US-Israeli-UK Color Revolution

When news of the 2018 Iranian protests first broke on January 1st, some were struck by the odd assortment of protest cries. The Iranian protestors were reported to be complaining about all sorts of things:

Death to the dictator (an apparent reference to Ayatollah Khamenei)

Death to Rouhani (the current Iranian president)

I give my life for Iran, not Gaza, not Lebanon

We are of Aryaee [Aryan] race, we dont worship Arabs

The big clue among these protest cries is this next one, where the protestors were said to have shouted:

No to Gaza, no to Lebanon, no to Palestine, no to Syria...

There Was A 10% Chance Of Geomagnetic Storms Last Night... But.... After the Shift

AURORAS IGNORE SPACE WEATHER FORECAST: Last night's space weather forecast called for quiet conditions around the Arctic Circle. There was a scant 10% chance of geomagnetic storms. Nevertheless, when Markus Varik looked up from Troms, Norway, on Jan. 25th, this is what he saw:
"The aurora was so bright, we could easily read the Spaceweather.com website!" laughs Varik. "Although the chance of Northern Lights was small, the Northern Lights didn't believe it."
Indeed, with the solar wind slackening, an explosion of auroras seemed unlikely. However, Troms is a special place where auroras can appear without strong solar activity. The island city is located beneath our planet's persistent auroral oval, a ring-shaped region surrounding the north pole where the geomagnetic field guides particles from space down onto the upper atmosphere. Inside this oval, sputtering auroras can suddenly blossom into magnificent sprays of green and purple light--no solar storms required.
Tonight's space weather forecast calls for more quiet. Auroras, anyone? Monitor the realtime photo gallery for sightings. Free: Aurora Alerts.

FBI Loses Text Messages In Two Cases; MSM Silent About Massive Corruption The Daily Sheeple

FBI-hillary-clinton-investigation-evidence-1024x536

Its no coincidence that the FBI has conveniently lost text messages in two cases; one dealing with anti-Trumpers within the agency, and the other dealing with the Clinton investigation.

The FBI is claiming 5 months of texts from their employee Peter Strzok and lawyer Lisa Page are missing, yet the DOJs Inspector General, Michael Horowitz, contradicts this claim by stating his office received the missing text in August of last year.

As Zerohedge reported, is someone lying or just incompetent? Did Horowitzs office *think* they had received the texts in question without actually verifying? Did the DOJ screw up and fail to read Horowitzs letter before losing the text messages so that leaky Congressional investigators wouldnt see them? Either way, this question needs answering.

In another separate case, you have more Clinton documents going missing which is typical when the crime family is under any type of investigation as is evident from history.

Both Strzok and Page worked on probes (investigations) into former Secretary of State Hillary Clintons emails and possible collusion between Russia and President Donald Trumps 2016 presidential campaign briefly, Reuters reported.

The texts missing are for the period between Dec. 14, 2016 and May 17, 2017.

Strzok, a veteran counterintelligence agent, was discharged from Robert Muellers team after Mueller learned that Strzok had exchanged politically charged anti-Trump text messages with an FBI lawyer. The lawyer, Lisa Page, left Muellers team before the text messages were discovered.

The Department wants to bring to your attention that the FBIs technical system for retaining text messages sent and received on FBI mobile devices failed to preserve text messages for Mr. Strzok and Ms. Page, Stephen Boyd, the assistant attorney general for legislative affairs at the Justice Department, wrote to Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson, the chairman of HSGAC, New...

Florida Lawmakers Introduce HPV Vaccine MANDATE Bill The Daily Sheeple

Biohazard-Needle-Syringe-Vaccine-Poison

Florida lawmakers are now pushing a totalitarian medical police state law that would deny a public education to children who arent injected with the extremely toxic and risky HPV vaccine.

SB 1551, also being deceptively called the Womens Cancer Prevention Act, mandates HPV (human papillomavirus) vaccines in school-aged children, revoking medical choice rights from parents and invoking state-sponsored coercion to force children to be subjected to extremely risky medical interventions, even against the wishes of their parents.

The HPV vaccine has been know to cause some of the worst adverse side effects. According to Natural Newsa boy was paralyzed from the neck down after receiving a Gardasil HPV vaccination. Dont forget the horrendous adverse effects caused by HPV vaccines in Ireland after an Irish vaccine push damaged countless young girls. Pay no attention to the fact that Japan withdrew its support for HPV vaccines following widespread toxic effects that shocked the nation. And most of all, dont you dare read anything about one of the developers of HPV vaccines, Dr. Diane Harper, who publicly blew the whistle on the toxicity, harm and health risks posed by HPV vaccines, saying: If we vaccinate 11-year-olds and the protection doesnt last weve put them at harm from side effects, small but real, for no benefit. The benefit to public health is nothing, there is no reduction in cervical cancers, they are just postponed, unless the protection lasts for at least 15 years, and over 70% of all sexually active females of all ages are vaccinated.

So what are they really...

14 Symptoms of Cancer that Are Often Overlooked By Women Awareness Act

The National Cancer Institute reports that approximately 38.5% of men and women will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in the course of their life. In fact, they estimate that there were 1,688,780 new cases of Cancer in 2017! A staggering number!

The good news is that many of these cases can be treated if they are caught early enough. The World Health Organization states, Early detection of cancer greatly increases the chances for successful treatment. There are two major components of early detection of cancer: education to promote early diagnosis and screening. Recognizing possible warning signs of cancer and taking prompt action leads to early diagnosis. Learn to listen to your body and pay attention to the messages it is trying to send you.

Dont ignore these 14 signs of cancer:

#1 Abnormal Bleeding

Whether you are spotting between periods or bleeding heavier than usual, you should pay careful attention to any signs of abnormal bleeding. This is one of the known indicators of endometrial cancer.

#2 Changes in the Mouth

If you are experiencing frequent and recurrent canker sores, or if you notice patches of yellow, white or gray within your mouth you should speak with your doctor. These changes may be caused by oral cancer.

#3 Inability to Swallow

If you are currently battling a cold, flu or a sore throat then you may occasionally have difficulty swallowing. If, however, you notice that you have a hard time swallowing with no explanation, or if it is accompanied by weight loss or vomiting, this may be a sign of throat or stomach cancer.

The Dangers of Forcing Your Third Eye Open Awareness Act

Sure, opening your third eye can be a wonderful experience if you are ready but there are some terrible things that can come with forcing it open too early. Only open your third eye when you are ready.

Dont expect to open your third eye to solve all of your problems. Now, for those who may not know, the third eye is located in-between the eyes on the forehead. It is associated with the brow chakra Ajna and the pineal gland. It is in a sense the gate to higher consciousness.

When we force our third eye open we often become disoriented and experience chronic brain fog. You see not everything that comes with opening the third eye is good. It forces you to see everything, even things you dont want to see.

Opening the third eye is not for everyone. If you are not ready to give up reality as it is, dont do it. Those who are opening their third eye are able to see different levels and dimensions of this reality. It is not something many people can handle. That being said, another good point is that it cannot be undone.

Thinking about why you want to open your third eye is important. You have to be sure you are ready and open it slowly, forcing anything is not a good idea as I have said time and time again. If you dont know much about spirituality dont bother, give yourself time to understand what it is you are getting yourself into beforehand.

Opening your third eye prematurely comes with headaches, energy draining, and can really set you back. Always do your research and make sure you are truly ready to do the things you are doing.

The ongoing battle of the bulge, while once considered primarily a matter of vanity, may actually be one of the best ways to reduce your risk of dying from a multitude of causes (i.e. all-cause mortality), but especially heart attack.[1]

Some studies have even revealed that abdominal obesity, known clinically as central obesity, and which is measured by the hip-to-waist ratio, may be more important than blood lipids, i.e. cholesterol, in determining heart attack risk. [2]

So, with this in mind, the following 6 diet tips, take on even greater relevance to your overall health.

Coconut Oil  Two human studies now exist showing that dietary coconut is safe and effective in reducing midsection fat in both women and men.  In the womens study, the treatment group received two tablespoons of coconut oil (30 ml), daily, over a period of 12 weeks, resulting in both a reduction in waist circumference, as well as a boost in their good HDL cholesterol levels. [3]  In the male study, obese men received two tablespoons (30 ml) of coconut oil per day, taken in 3 divided doses, half an hour before each meal, for one month. The men experienced an average of over one inch (2.86 cm) reduction in their waist circumference, with no changes in their blood lipids.  You can read the full study here.

SLL, Desperation, 12/21/16

"The Deep States worst nightmare was never that Donald Trump would improve relations with Russia. What keeps it awake, shaking and screaming in the darkness, is the prospect of exposure and prosecution for decades of criminality. For the first time since John F. Kennedy, the Deep State is being challenged. An inflection point may have been reached. If so, legal developments will take on a life of their own, ultimately beyond the control of congressional committees, Sessions, Trump, or anyone else.

Market Talk- January 25, 2018 Armstrong Economics

It certainly felt as though Asia was keen to hear what the ECB has in store before making its next move. With most core markets closing weaker many were hoping the ECB would result in their relief. The Nikkei closed down over 1% but then the Yen did appreciate 0.5% in Tokyo trading. As expected, exporters and financials led the move lower even though volumes were not as previous. However, as the day wore-on and having heard from Mario Draghi, the Yen reversed much of that move and was heading north of 109 again. By the close of US trading Yen saw renewed safe-haven status and we played between high 108s and 109.15 level. The Hang Seng saw a little profit-taking today resulting in a near 1% decline with most of that weakness in the final hour of trading. Shanghai also traded with a negative bias eventually losing -0.3%.

Europe was waiting for the ECB and more importantly his comments concerning the recent Euro strength. During the press conference Mario Draghi kept a tight lip and explained how there are three causes of currency strength his interpretation. Although not said, the implication was others were talking their currency down! That was obviously addressed later in the day and from no other than US President Donal Trump live from Davos. His statement that the US dollar will get stronger and stronger! This was all the market needed to hear and set currency markets alive. Immediately the Yen traded from 108.50 to 109.60; the GBP traded from 142.75 to 140.80 and the DXY bounced from 88.25 to 89.35. Core European indices all finished lower with the German DAX leading the way closing down -0.9%. Draghi also said he did not see any rise in interest rates in 2018 and also stressed that there is no link between inflation and the asset purchase programme. Also at Davos the UK PM Theresa May addressed the press with Trump and confirmed the two countries have a special relationship. Draghis comments also hit core bond yields and so we saw a narrowing of spreads between US/Germany and Core against periphery.

Earnings and continued euphoria sent stocks to fresh highs again today and all before the turn late in the session. We did see the DOW up nearly 200 points at one stage on weaker currency, strong f...

Germany calls on NATO to discuss Turkeys military operation in Syrias Afrin blogfactory

If any Nation who knows how utterly pointless war is , Germany does.

German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel has asked the NATO Secretary General to raise the issue of Turkeys military operation against Kurds in Afrin as tensions rise in the region.

I have asked the secretary general of NATO [Jens Stoltenberg] to discuss the situation in Syria and [particularly] in the northern part of the country within NATO, Gabriel said in a statement published by the Foreign Ministry. He also said that Berlin, together with Paris, urges the sides to stop further escalation of hostilities in the region to facilitate humanitarian access [to the area] and to protect civilians, calling it the issue of highest priority.

Gabriel also noted that conflict resolution should take into account [the] security interests of Turkey.Chances for political negotiations for peace and stability in Syria still exist, he said, adding that they should not be missed as a result of military action. I have repeatedly made it clear to the Turkish government, added the foreign minister.

On Sunday, the German foreign minister criticized Ankaras actions in Afrin by saying that the last thing Syria needs after the defeat of Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) is another military confrontation on its territory. He also warned that a conflict between Turkey and the Syrian Kurds carries risks that are inestimable.

Gabriel praised both Turkey and the Kurds by saying that they had both made great efforts in their fight against Islamic State terrorists. He also urged all sides to focus on the peace process and political negotiations.

Gabriel also indicated that Germany plans to further delay its arms exports to Turkey in light of Ankaras operation in northern Syria. It is clear for the federal government that we should not supply arms to hotspots of tension and will not do that, he said in his statement, apparently referring to Turkeys military campaign in the Afrin region.

Seek peace or risk aid: Trump to Palestine World News Echonetdaily

Davos,  [RAW]

President Donald Trump has threatened to withhold hundreds of millions of dollars in aid and support to the Palestinians if they refused to pursue peace with Israel.

And Trump accused Palestine of disrespecting the United States by not meeting Vice President Mike Pence during a recent visit.

The Palestinian leadership shunned Pences trip to the region after Trump recognised Jerusalem as Israels capital and vowed to begin moving the US embassy to the city.

The move sparked condemnation from Arab leaders and criticism and around the world.

It also broke with decades of US policy that the citys status must be decided in negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians.

But speaking after a meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Trump said: We give them (Palestine) hundreds of millions of dollars in aid and support, tremendous numbers, numbers that nobody understands.

That money is on the table and that money is not going to them unless they sit down and negotiate peace.

Netanyahu insisted there was no substitute for a US-brokered peace deal between Israel and Palestine, adding: as a facilitator, theres no other international body that would do it.

A spokesman for Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said the United States had taken itself off the table as a peace mediator since it recognised Jerusalem as Israels capital.

But Trump told the Palestinians they must come to the negotiating table.

Because I can tell you that Israel does want to make peace and theyre going to have to want to make peace too or were going to have nothing to do with them any longer, the president said.

Trump said his administrations peace plans were a great proposal for Palestinians which covers a lot of the things that were over the years discussed or agreed on.

He added that his declaration of Jerusalem as Israels capital took it off the negotiating table, adding theyll do something that will be a very good thing without elaborating.

Steve Beckow -- Are Coastal Areas Destined to Go Under Water? Operation Disclosure



Credit: 2012. Nothing like this going to happen

I understand that it was said on a radio program last night (no names mentioned) that there would be tremendous flooding, resulting in the loss of significant portions of coastline.

May I address that please? It isn't consistent with what our sources have said. Let me briefly offer their comments.

But before I do, this information doesn't apply to localized flooding as a result of a hurricane, of which we've had numerous instances in past years and may continue to have them. It refers to rising sea levels and the permanent swamping of an entire piece of coastline.

First, Matthew Ward in 2016:

"First, with climate change a topic of global discussion, there is talk about the seas covering islands and inundating coastal areas up to mountain ranges and people by the millions being drowned. That will not happenEarth is not going to endanger the lives of her beloved residents during her return to a moderate climate globally.

"As polar ice and glaciers continue melting, water levels will continue to rise slowly and in small measure overall, and residents of potentially affected areassea-level islands, parts of continental coastlines, banks of your largest rivers, and low-lying countrieswill have plenty of time to take any necessary preventive action or relocate." (1)

Eight years earlier he counselled us:

"I shall say only that ... the cleansing process will NOT flood millions of square miles of land and cause billions of deaths; there will be NO need for spacecraft to rescue you just before your planet upends itself or to live underground when you are returned; the millions who speak against US administration policies will NOT be rounded up and put in prison camps; NO manmade viruses will be unleashed and cause most of your population to die; there is NO need to invest billions of dollars in gold so economic and governmental reforms can begin.

9th Grade Students Gain the Attention of Scientists After Their Experiment Reveals a Dark Truth About WiFi

We have long encouraged students to find ways to connect with their school work, making it interesting and personal, holding their attention longer and allowing them to see more success.

This was the case at a school in northern Jutland, where a group of 9th-grade students recently embarked on a biology experiment inspired by their own personal experiences with concentrating. Lea Nielsen, one of the students, explained: We all think we have experienced difficulty concentrating in school, if we had slept with the phone next to our head, and sometimes also experienced having difficulty sleeping.

Curious about the shared experience, the group of girls designed an experimentto investigate the impact of wi-fi radiation on living cells. Specifically, they chose to use cress seeds. Taking 400 seeds, they separated them out across 12 different trays. Six of the trays were placed in each of 2 rooms. Both rooms were kept at the same temperature, and both sets of trays were given the same amount of water and access to sunlight throughout the experiment.

The one difference between the two rooms, creating the basis for their experiment, is that the trays in one room were placed next to two Wi-Fi routers. The Wi-Fi routers broadcast the same type of radiation that can be observed coming from our cellphones, allowing the students to recreate the impact of sleeping with your phone on your bedside table, next to your head.

The results? After 12 days it was shocking to see the difference between the two sets of trays. While the cress seeds in the first room were growing well, appearing heal...

When Alternative Media Sells Out MintPress News

Last August I made a note of the fact that The Young Turks Cenk Uygur had retweeted a fan who said that he gets his news from Uygur and MSNBCs Rachel Maddow, because they report the REAL NEWS. I said at the time that this was Cenks way of officially formalizing TYTs position as MSNBCs ugly little sister.

Once a relatively reliable outlet for anti-establishment progressive values, TYT has been growing more pro-establishment by the day, joining Rachel Maddow in the relentless promotion of the Russiagate psyop, with Uygur even going so far as to predict ten months ago that the scandal could have President Trump out of office within six months.

Since that time no evidence of collusion has been produced and Trump has devolved into a more aggressive anti-Russia hawk than his predecessor, effectively invalidating the entire premise of the scandal.

And now theyve recruited Dan fucking Rather.

An early cheerleader for the Iraq invasion and the so-called war on terror, Rather for decades played a lead role in pacing the American people into accepting the neoliberal-neoconservativeOrwellian dystopia that America finds itself in today. Much like Uygur he is not the very most toxic media figure in history, but the trust people placed in him allowed for the normalization of the establishment politics which are imperiling our ecosystem, slaughtering innocent human beings all around the world, and...

Feed the Homeless in America, Get Fined or Arrested The Sleuth Journal

Feed the Homeless in America, Get Fined or Arrested | homeless-poverty | Civil Rights Government Control Losing Rights Special Interests US News

The state of homelessness in America is appalling, a largely unreported issue, the problem ignored by Washington, doing little or nothing to address it.

According to the National Alliance to End Homelessness, on any given night, over 550,000 Americans are homeless forced to sleep outside, in an emergency shelter or transitional housing.

Homelessness is a poverty issue, affecting the working poor and unemployed housing and rental costs increasingly unaffordable.

In 2014, around seven million Americans doubled-up with family or friends, for many prelude to homelessness.

A recent HUD report revealed increased homelessness last year, saying it comes at a time of an affordable housing crisis.

According to an Apartment List National Report, rents were higher in 89 of Americas 100 largest cities last year.

A 2017 National Law Center on Homelessness and Poverty (NLCHP) report, titled Housing not Handcuffs, said laws criminalized homelessness in 187 cities since 2006 prohibiting sleeping in public places, living in vehicles and sharing food.

The NLCHP explained (a)lthough many people experiencing homelessness have literally no choice but to live outside and in public places, laws and enforcement practices punishing the presence of visibly homeless people in public space continue to grow.

In too many places across America, the nations homeless are criminalized for their misery instead of federal, state and local authorities taking responsible steps to alleviate the problem.

National Alliance to End Homelessness CEO Nan Roman explained (u)nsheltered homelessness is on the rise, and major cities are feeling it most, adding:

Ending homelessness is a complex, long-term effort. For several years weve seen homeless systems become more efficient and effectiv...

Thirty states and the District of Columbia currently have laws broadly legalizing marijuana in some form. The herb has been shown to have significant therapeutic value for a wide range of medical conditions, including cancer, Alzheimers disease, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, glaucoma, lung disease, anxiety, muscle spasms, hepatitis C, inflammatory bowel disease, and arthritis pain. The community of Americans who rely on legal medical marijuana was estimated to be 2.6 million people in 2016 and includes a variety of mainstream constituency groups like veterans, senior citizens, cancer survivors, and parents of epileptic children. Unlike patented pharmaceuticals, which are now the leading cause of death from drug overdose, there have been no recorded deaths from marijuana overdose in the US. By comparison, alcohol causes 30,000 deaths annually, and prescription drugs taken as directed are estimated to kill 100,000 Americans per year.

Under federal law, however, marijuana remains a Schedule I Controlled Substance a deadly dangerous drug with no medical use and high potential for abuse and its possession remains a punishable offense. On the presidential campaign trail, Donald Trump said the issue of marijuana legalization should be up to the states, continuing the hands off policy established under President Obama. Under the 2013 Cole Memorandum, the Department of Justice said it would not prosecute individuals and companies complying with robust and well-enforced state legalization programs. But on January 4th, Attorney General Jeff Sessions rescinded that memo and gave federal prosecutors the authority to pursue marijuana cases at their own discretion, even in places where the herb is legal under state law. The action has made banks even more afraid to take marijuana cash, which can be prosecuted as illegal money laundering, an offense...

Computer Attacks Preventing Access to FISA Document? Operation Disclosure

Computer Attacks to Prevent Access to the FISA Document? [video]

JANUARY 24, 2018

Source: STARSHIP EARTH: THE BIG PICTURE



Illustration only


I am hearing of a lot of computer issues today. While weve had no Internet issues for a couple of months, my speed today was brutally slow, hubby took his PC in for repairs, and there was a Century Link truck in the neighbourhood but service never improved. My mothers iPad shut down last night for some reason and she thought she might have a virus.

James Munder has a really bizarre story to tell, and Jim Stone as well.

Jim shared this warning after his computer got super hot when trying to access the FISA document:

THE REAL FISA MEMO IS OUT THERE. YOUR SYSTEM WILL BE ATTACKED IF YOU FIND IT. TAKE YOUR HARD DRIVE OUT, SET A BIOS PASSWORD, AND BOOT WITH KNOPPIX IF YOU GOT IT. DO NOT TRY THIS ANY OTHER WAY.

Thomas Paine at AIM4Truth/American Intelligence Media said hes gone through the 100-page document already, so some folks have it, but Jim Stone says it may have been compromised by now as he suspects Alex Jones copy may be.

Perhaps this is all just so much FISA-gate drama, or perhaps not. It sounds pretty out there but information wars are new to us so we arent sure what this hybrid warfare looks like. I am confident there are workarounds that the White Hats can handle and we will all get to see the FISA documents if we so choose.

From what Thomas says, most of us wont want to read it anyway. The summation in the 4-page memo is sufficient for me. Those wh...

Four Pillars for a Better Future: Knowledge, Consciousness, Innovation, Local Action Part 2 Liberty Blitzkrieg

Yesterday's post covered two foundational pillars for creating a better paradigm for humanity, knowledge and consciousness. Knowledge is key because if we don't know how the world really works and how we're systemically being preyed upon, there's no incentive to get to work changing things. Consciousness is also critical, because knowledge without wisdom, thoughtfulness and heightened awareness will simply result in a destructive and counterproductive revolution after which we'll find ourselves back in the exact same place.

Let's now move on to exploring one of the avenues by which we can manifest consciousness in the physical reality.

Why Political Correctness Is Incorrect CLG News

Why Political Correctness Is Incorrect By Michael Rectenwald | 25 Jan 2018 | In adopting social-justice-based policies and mechanisms, North American colleges and universities are unwittingly drawing on totalitarian resources of enforcement. The ranks of administrators swell, and college tuitions increase, due largely to the outsized administrations devoted to special student needs. Most college administrations now include Bias Response Teams, tribunals that adjudicate behind closed doors reports of "microaggressions" and "bias infractions" at over 230 colleges and universities nationwide. Bias hotlines, safe spaces, trigger warnings and no-platforming or shutting down of speakers yield the right to curtail free expression and open inquiry to social justice advocates and social-justice-dominated college administrators.

The New York Times Discourages Democrats From Bashing Trump MintPress News

Opinion Days ago, the Democratic Party disappointingly caved to Republicans and President Donald Trump and ended the government shut down without achieving anything meaningful. They were promised the potential for action by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell that could help 800,000-plus immigrants known as Dreamers avoid deportation, but there are few signs that will materialize.

Democrats balked at an opportunity to take a stand because they did not want to be divisive and disruptive. They did not have the fortitude to stick to a message that would communicate to Americans that the political party in power was shirking its responsibility to protect immigrants whose lives hang in the balance.

Enter the New York Times and its opinion section, which published an online conversation on January 24 under the headline, Enough Trump Bashing, Democrats.

What exactly do the editors overseeing the opinion section believe about Trump? Do the editors really think Democrats can negotiate in good faith or compromise with the president? What do they think Democrats can work on and get done with Trump when Republicans pay lip service to a policy change and then pursue a different and destructive policy?

It does not matter because in its role as the gatekeeper of political discourse on the establishment left the New York Times believeslike most Democratic strategiststhat Democrats must pander to Republicans and avoid political messages, which are strident and may alienate them. The news outlet also discourages party activists from running in the Democratic primaries.

Forget the reality that this is the strategy, which Hillary Clintons campaign pursued against Trump in the 2016 election and how miserably it failed. Ignore the fact that Clinton was upset that her opponent, Senator Bernie Sanders, pushed her to the left, and instead of becoming a stronger candidate, her campaign resisted and Democratic voter turnout was lower than in 2012.

Proposed law would turn Florida into a vaccine police state: 'Women's Cancer Prevention Act' would mandate mass injections with toxic HPV vaccines CLG News

Proposed law would turn Florida into a vaccine police state: 'Women's Cancer Prevention Act' would mandate mass injections with toxic HPV vaccines | 23 Jan 2018 | Following in the eugenics footsteps of California's SB 277, Florida lawmakers are now pushing a totalitarian medical police state law that would deny an education to children who aren't injected with the extremely toxic and risky HPV vaccine. SB 1551, being deceptively called the "Women's Cancer Prevention Act," mandates HPV vaccines in school-aged children, revoking medical choice rights from parents and invoking state-sponsored coercion to force children to be subjected to extremely risky medical interventions, even against the wishes of their parents. This is the ultimate medical tyranny on display as the state of Florida prepares to nullify parental rights and essentially "medically kidnap" children as required to make sure their bodies are penetrated with -- and invaded by -- whatever cocktail of viruses and damaging chemicals are manufactured into HPV vaccines (even the doctors and nurses administering these vaccines have no idea what they really contain).

Just because youre not using N word, harboring Ill will toward black doesnt mean youre not racist. Oprah Winfrey

If you remember right, it was one month ago that I had stated on my radio program, You can mark my words.  They will attempt to put Oprah Winfrey in the peoples White House in some capacity.

And now, we are here.

Before we begin, I need to make one quick point before going into detail. From coast to coast, from city to city, from state to state, and from first-hand experience, I do not see what the CIA-controlled media is continuously spewing out when it comes to racial issues which, for the most part, are a thing of the past.

This is an issue that is water under the bridge and does not belong to the up and comings of the last 6 decades.  Yet, there is an all-out attempt to use people of a revengeful nature, who have never experienced what they decry, in an attempt to bring about more division.

They found this is one such person, Oprah Winfrey.

First, I would like to make you aware of what President Roosevelt said back in the 1930s.

Royal Caribbean, on Soaring 4th Quarter Revenues & Profits, to Pay Employees 5% Bonuses Cruise Law News

Royal Caribbean announced its fourth quarter financial results with CEO Richard Fain stating that the cruise company received revenues of $2,000,000,000 with net profits of $288,040,000. Royal Caribbean's fourth-quarter profits and revenues reportedly exceeded Wall Street estimates,

Mr. Fain told CNBC that the company met its lofty three-year goals of "double earnings" and a "double-digit" return on invested capital. In response the Royal Caribbean executive stated yesterday that Royal Caribbean employees will each receive a bonuses in the amount of 5% of their annual salary. 

Investor Place reports that the cruise line will be distributing the bonus to its 66,000 employees. This Roya; Caribean CEO Richard Fainwill include shore-side and shipboard employees. This bonuses will be in the form of "equity grants" which will vest over three years. RCL reports that total spending on the bonuses will be $80 million.

Crew members state that their annual minimum guaranteed salaries range from $500 to $600 a month for a pot-washer to around $800 to $1,300 for a waiter, cabin attendant or bar tender. These Royal Caribbean ship  employees typically work contracts of around 6 to 8 months straight which turns out to working approximately 9 months a year. So a 5% bonus turns out to be around $225 to $270 for a pot-washer to around $350 to $550 for waiters, cabin attendants and bartenders, to be paid over the course of three years.

Meanwhile, CEO Fain reportedly sold 20,000 shares of Royal Caribbean Cruises stock in a transaction on January 16th. The stock was sold at an average price of $128.10, for a total transaction of $2,562,000.00. Following the sale, the chief executive officer now directly owns 807,741 shares of the companys stock, valued at $103,471,622.10, according to SEC records. Ms. Fain indirectly owns another 216,206 shares which, at a price of $128.10 each, have a value of $27,695,988.60. Mr. Fain's' direct and indirect holdings of RCL stock are valued at $131,167,610.70, at the price of $128.10 a share. 

RCL shares are now worth around $132 a share, up approximately $4 more a share since last week, so Mr. Fain's RCL total RCL shares are now worth around $4,000,000 more than they were at the time of the sale last week. 

The point is, that although it's to be commended in theory that crew members will be rewarded for their hard work with bonuses, the amounts to be paid to the crew in ques...

(Video) The Demise of the Echo Chamber: Why Having Friends with Diverse Ideas is a Good Thing Operation Disclosure



Published on Jan 25, 2018

As the gap of separation continues to grow within the political arena, we see it filtering into our personal communities such as friendships. There seems to be an ever-growing intolerance towards others who hold opposing beliefs or viewpoints, and I am always perplexed why people feel so threatened to speak with someone not echoing their own beliefs.

I co-host a podcast, Enlighten Up, which is spiritually based. Recently, we have been getting many messages, emails, and comments in support of how we offer differing perspectives that range from the skeptic to the fringe. We believe it's important to honor our individuality and keep an open mind to other perspectives so that we not only encourage someone to feel heard, but expand our minds in the way we see not just the world but ourselves as well.

If we want to continue to learn and grow we must be willing to listen to diverse ideas that fall outside of our echo chamber. It allows us to expand our possibilities into an arena we may have never considered otherwise. It also allows us to maintain a human to human connection so that we may listen to one another with more compassion...something that is lacking within many people these days. How are we supposed to understand one another if we can't openly communicate and express ourselves?

In today's video I address how we can bridge the gap of separation through friendships built on diverse ideas. To believe that a world where everyone thinks the same way is a benefit to society is a tragedy in its own right. If we stand for multiculturalism, we should stand for diverse ideas that challenge the way we think so that we can all grow and improve upon the world together. United.

I am so grateful for my friends that challenge my way of thinking but also honor my ideas and beliefs. It keeps the dialogue open and allows for peer to peer learning, something I believe is highly undervalued. If we start to positively change the way we communicate with those who challenge us, we will be walking a path towards unity while honoring the diversification of ideas and value of independent thinking.

The US Finally Tells the Truth About Its Objectives in Syria MintPress News

After over a year of flip-flopping and reversing its position on Syria and its president, Bashar al-Assad, the U.S has finally admitted the real reason its military continues to violate Syrias sovereignty.

From the Washington Post:

After months of incoherence, the Trump administration has taken a step toward a clear policy on Syria and its civil war. In a speech last week, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson bluntly recognized a truth that both President Trump and President Barack Obama attempted to dodge: that it is crucial to our national defense to maintain a military and diplomatic presence in Syria, to help bring an end to that conflict, and assist the Syrian people . . . to achieve a new political future. To do that, the United States will continue to deploy several thousand personnel in the country and help allied Syrian forces maintain control over enclaves in the southwest, near Israel and Jordan, and the northeast, on the border with Iraq and Turkey. [emphasis added]

The great lie told by the Washington Post editorial board, however, is its attempt to paint Washingtons regime change operation in Syria as crucial to Americas national defense and a truth that both President Trump and President Barack Obama attempted to dodge. In doing so, the Post is suggesting that regime change in Syria is the only realistic path for the U.S. to pursue, even when it has become increasingly clear that the longer the U.S. prolongs the war in Syria, the greater the suffering of ordinary Syrians will be.

Considering that the U.S. militarys recent strategy in Syria allegedly involves a 30,000-strong Kurdish and Arab border force that in less than a week prompted a Turkish invasion, it should be clear that the U.S. has no intention of putting Syria on the long-awaited road to peace.

However, according to the Washington Post, the U.S. new proposal is justified. Critics predictably charge that Mr. Trump is launching another endless war in Syria,...

Jon Rappoport: Why the FDA Should be Charged with Murder Operation Disclosure

Why the FDA should be charged with murder

By Jon Rappoport

If you worked for a federal agency that was killing people at the rate of 100,000 a year, every year, like clockwork, and if you knew it, wouldn't you feel compelled to say or do something about it?

At the FDA, which is, in fact, killing Americans at that rate, no one has ever felt the need to step forward and speak up.

Let's shift the venue and ask the same question. If you were a medical reporter for a major media outlet in the US, and you knew the above fact, wouldn't you make it a priority to say something, write something, do something?

I'm talking about people like Sanjay Gupta (CNN, CBS), Gina Kolata (NY Times), Tim Johnson (ABC News), and Thomas Maugh II (LA Times).

And with that, let's go to the smoking guns. The citation is: BMJ June 7, 2012 (BMJ 2012:344:e3989). Author, Jeanne Lenzer.

Lenzer refers to a report by the Institute for Safe Medication Practices: "It [the report] calculated that in 2011 prescription drugs were associated with two to four million people in the US experiencing 'serious, disabling, or fatal injuries, including 128,000 deaths.'"

The report called this "one of the most significant perils to humans resulting from human activity."

And here is the final dagger. The report was compiled by outside researchers who went into the FDA's own database of "serious adverse [medical-drug] events."

Therefore, to say the FDA isn't aware of this finding would be absurd. The FDA knows. The FDA knows and it isn't saying anything about it, because the FDA certifies, as safe and effective, all the medical drugs that are routinely maiming and killing Americans.

And for the past five years or so, I have been writing about and citing a published report by the late Dr. Barbara Starfield that indicates 106,000 people in the US are killed by medical drugs every year. Until her death in 2011, Dr. Starfield worked at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health. Her report, "Is US health...

Venezuelan Rebel Cop Oscar Perez Was Massacred by the Government AFTER He Surrendered | Capture5 | Special Interests World News

Note from Jose: This is information compiled by myself and from my trusted sources, who are near the place where this event took place. Some other references are from the Miami Herald and Venezuelan press. The events of January 15 were confirmed to me by the above-mentioned sources. There is a remarkable inconsistency between the information provided by the videos chronology and the official version.

In the 2017 protests, thousands of Venezuelans took the streets, patriotically and initially in a pacificist mood, responding to the call of our nation that cried out for Freedom.

The state security agencies, that both God and the world knows have become no more than a Praetorian Guard of the communist regime, fiercely attacked hundreds of Venezuelans with the intention to stop the demonstrations by force.

Now, it is known that some officials refused the orders to shoot to their own people, and understanding the great historical responsibility they faced, sacrificed their own comforts and careers, and placed themselves on the side of Venezuela.

Researchers Have Mapped Out How Plants Sense Our World TruthTheory

By Christianna Reedy, Futurism

While plants sensory processes are complex and mysterious, researchers recently took a major step towards elucidating them in a new study that mapped out the interactions of around 200 of the proteins involved.

MAPPING SENSES

Plants may lack our facial features, but the fact that they dont have eyes, ears, or noses has not stopped them from developing ways to see, hear, and smell potential threats around them. While plants sensory processes are complex and mysterious, a new study mapping out protein interactions has given researchers new insights.

Rather than growing sensory organs like mammals do, plants use proteins that are stationed at their cells outer membranes to detect chemicals around them or the proteins from pathogens or hormones released from another organism. These detections will trigger a warning signal into the cell. The focus of the study, published in Nature, was a type of membrane protein that are crucial to this process: leucine-rich repeat receptor kinases, or LRR-recept...

11 Traps Sabotaging Your Spiritual Growth TruthTheory

By Lonerwolf

No matter what the practice or teaching, ego loves to wait in ambush to appropriate spirituality for its own survival and gain. Chgyam Trungpa, Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism

Spiritual growth is an experience we all go through once we have experienced the spiritual awakening process. As we begin to awaken to the truth of who we are, we develop a connection to our authentic essence, higher nature or Soul.

As we progressively advance on our paths, our spiritual essence begins to blossom like a luminous flower deep in our heart. And the more we clear away the dead, gnarled and overgrown beliefs, perspectives, and emotional baggage within us, the more clearly we feel our divine essence. When we maintain our inner garden, we feel more and more love, wisdom, peace, and wholeness as our True Nature is revealed slowly to us.

Yet, like any garden, our metaphorical inner landscapes can be consumed by weeds, plagues, and forms of pollution that strangle anything beautiful we have been nurturing. Sometimes, we even sabotage the growth occurring within us ourselves, without knowing it.

Melted nuclear fuel seen inside second Fukushima reactor CLG News

Melted nuclear fuel seen inside second Fukushima reactor | 20 Jan 2018 | The operator of Japan's crippled Fukushima nuclear plant said Friday that a long telescopic probe successfully captured images of what is most likely melted fuel inside one of its three damaged reactors, providing limited but crucial information for its cleanup. Tokyo Electric Power Co. said the fishing rod-like device carrying a camera went deep into the plant's Unit 2 primary containment vessel. The images indicated that at least part of the [radioactive] fuel had breached the core, falling to the vessel's floor, TEPCO spokesman Takahiro Kimoto said. Experts say they believe part of the fuel still remains inside the core of the Unit 2 reactor, while almost all of the nuclear fuel rods in Unit 1 and 3 melted and fell to the bottom of the primary containment chambers.

20+ Illustrations Show Disney Characters Not Living So Happily Ever After TruthTheory

BLuke Miller Truth Theory

And they all lived happily ever after! Or did they?

And they all lived happily ever after, this is the fairy tale mantra that pops into the mind when you think of Walt Disney movies. But do we live happily ever after or (if we are using these movies as a metaphor) do we have these moments of magic, which are then followed by a dose of reality? Mexican visual artist Jos Rodolfo Loaiza (in some part) is changing the script on the happily ever after mantra by showing Disney characters in a different light.

Taken from Bored Panda: Specializing in pop culture, Rodolfo measures his viewers tolerance levels by putting our beloved characters in unorthodox context and showing them in dark, tough situations to explore the general theme of loss of innocence. Creating such kind of artworks, Rodolfo wants to raise the issue of what would happen with our classic characters if they were flesh and blood and were confronted by a frenetic and excessive world of fame, how many of them would prove to be susceptible to the excesses of drugs, alcohol, harassment or vanity?

His work captures a certain level of reality with a dark twist of humor. According to his website he captures images, once morbidly circulated by the media, and proposes a novel way of looking at them, You can decide for yourself:

How Conservationists Are Using 3D-Printed Turtle Eggs To Eliminate Poaching TruthTheory

By  Amanda Froelich Truth Theory

Did you know? Every year in the United States, tens of thousands of sea turtle eggs are stolen from nests. This is a violation of the federal Environmental Protection Act which seeks to protect the sea turtles from going extinct. Poachers will steal the sea turtle eggs to sell on the black market, where they are worth between $5 and $20 an egg.

To prevent the egg poaching from continuing, the conservation group Paso Pacfico is planting 3D printed decoy eggs in sea turtle nests in North and Central America. Because the eggs have a high risk of being poached, they are being used to help crack down on poachers.

The Washington Post reports that the 3D-printed ping pong ball-size eggs are identical to sea turtle eggs. However, they were laid by a printer and inside their silicone shells are GPS tracking devices. The conservationists hope to catch poachers by planting the fake eggs then confronting them.

We want to sneak them into nests that are most vulnerable to poaching,...

70 Years of Disinformation: CIA Funded Opinion Magazines in Europe MintPress News

When an intelligence agency arranges to disseminated fake news it is called disinformation and it is a subset of what is referred to as covert action, basically secret operations run in a foreign country to influence opinion or to disrupt the functioning of a government or group that is considered to be hostile.

During the Cold War, disinformation operations were run by many of the leading players in both the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and in the opposition Warsaw Pact. Sometimes the activity and the sponsorship were clearly visible, as when Radio Free Europe and Radio Moscow would exchange barbs about just how bad daily life was in the opposition alliance. Sometimes, however, it took the form of clandestinely placing stories in the media that were clearly untrue but designed to shift public perceptions of what was taking place in the world. The Vietnam War provided a perfect proxy playing field, with stories emanating from the U.S. government and its supporters presenting a narrative of a fight for democracy against totalitarianism while the Communist bloc promoted a contrary tale of colonial and capitalist oppression of a people striving to be free.

The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) inherited the mantle of covert action operations as a legacy from its OSS predecessor, which had had considerable success in conducting disinformation operations during World War 2. But there was from the start considerable opposition to continuing such programs as they were both expensive and subject to devastating blowback when they were identified and exposed. In Western Europe, powerful domestic communist parties were quick to publicize U.S. intelligence missteps, but nevertheless the ability to manipulate the news and information media to place stories critical of the Soviets and their allies led to major programs that funded magazines and books while also seeking to acquire a cadre of journalists that would produce pieces on demand proved too tempting to ignore.

There has been considerable ex post facto examination of the CIAs use of covert funding mechanisms including the Congress of Cultural Freedom to fund writers and magazines in Europe, the best known of which were The Paris Review and Encounter out of London. As there was a low intensity war going on against communism, a conflict which many patriotic writers supported, funding magazines and finding contributors to write appropriate material was relatively easy and hardly challenged. Some senior editors knew or strongly suspected where their funding was coming from while some did not, but most didnt ask any questions because then as now patrons of literary magazines were in short supply. Many of the writers were in the dark about the funding, but wrote what they did because of their own personal political convictions. The CIA, seeking value for money, would urge certain editorial lines but was not always very aggressive in doing so as it sought to a...

The Social Media Pyramid Scam The Sleuth Journal

The Social Media Pyramid Scam | social-media-world | Economy & Business Science & Technology Special Interests

(The Real Agenda News) Social media personalities generated more than $4 billion in one year for large social media pyramid scam users.

A pyramid scheme or as I prefer to call it, pyramid scam, is a business model that recruits members via a promise of payments for enrolling others into the scheme scam, rather than supplying investments or sale of products or services.

It recruits members other businesses or individuals with the promise that they will make money, by helping divulge their personalities or commercial activities as long as they increase the number of LIKES, SHARES and FOLLOWERS.

It seems only natural that if an individual is a very talented person or if this product or service is on-demand, he will have a growing number of LIKES, SHARES and FOLLOWERS. However, its been revealed that people are able to pay marketing companies or hackers to literally produce thousands and in some cases tens of thousands of fake LIKES, SHARES and FOLLOWERS for a specific social media user.

It is common to find articles online that not only promote buying or producing followers but also that call this practice legitimate in some instances. In other words, it is not what the individual social media user offers that attracts LIKES, SHARES and FOLLOWERS.

If you still dont understand why or how social media are pyramid scams, lets go into another corner of the fraud.

Major Supermarket Chain Says It Will Ban Plastic Packaging By 2023 TruthTheory

By Fattima Mahdi Truth Theory

Iceland is a leading supermarket chain in the United Kingdom that specialises in frozen food.They recently announced that they will help end the scourge of plastic by banning all plastic packaging on their own-brand products within the next five years. The current plastic packaging will be replaced with paper and recycled pulp trays.

Richard Walker, Icelands managing director, said that the world had woken up to the scourge of plastics. Walker added that the onus was on retailers to take a stand and deliver meaningful change. He went on to say: There really is no excuse any more for excessive packaging that creates needless waste and damages our environment. The technologies and practicalities to create less environmentally harmful alternatives exist, and so Iceland is putting a stake in the ground. Walker also said that Iceland would make sure that all packaging would be recyclable through domestic waste collections and that they would also support bottle deposit return initiatives.

Greenpeace Executive Director John Sauven called the announcement a bold pledge. He added: Its now up to other retailers and food producers to respond to that challenge. The tidal wave of plastic pollution will only start to recede when they turn off the tap.

Samantha Harding, from the Campaign to Protect Rural England, said: Iceland are steadfastly laying the path that all supermarkets should be following. Alongside its...

FBI Going Dark Problem: Encryption Considered A Threat To Public Safety The Fifth Column

Washington DC (TFC) The Federal Bureau of Investigation made headlines by calling encryption a threat to public safety. Pointing to over 7,000 devices the agency couldnt access in 2017, FBI head Christopher Wrey rekindled debate weighing personal security against national security.

According to an AOL reprint of Reuters reporting, over half of the devices seized by FBI during the 2017 fiscal year couldnt be accessed. The encryption wall is a difficult hurdle, even for the federal agency. The Bureau is challenged by both an rise in encrypted devices alongside increasing reliance of electronic data.

FBI and other law enforcement agencies sometimes appear to support strong encryption. No encryption at all would punch a major hole in Americas national security apparatus. Its for that reason law enforcement is caught in this odd paradoxical split between supporting strong encryption and a backdoor. The law enforcement community points to those large stores of inaccessible evidence as a hazard.

And were also seeing a blended threatnation-states using criminal hackers to carry out their dirty work.

Illegal US 'airbase' three times the size of Lebanon being set up in Syria Signs of the Times

Washington has established a secret airbase in Syria to protect the Kurdish forces who have occupied large areas of the Arab country, media reports said on Tuesday. The Arabic-language Lebanese Addiyar newspaper revealed that the US airbase in Syria can host 100 fighter jets and is in good distance from al-Tanf military base in Southeastern Syria. The daily disclosed that the airbase has been secretly built to protect one fourth of the Syrian territories occupied by the Kurds. It added that the airbase is 3.5 times larger than Lebanon (nearly 35,000km).

Saluting the Natures Heroes who help dazed seabirds

A volunteer network of 75 individuals on the French Polynesian island of Tahiti care for and release grounded and injured seabirds

By Nick Langley

The Groupe des sauveteurs des oiseaux marins is a volunteer network of 75 individuals on the French Polynesian island of Tahiti, who care for and release grounded and injured seabirds, mostly petrels. Most of the sauveteurs are members of the BirdLife Partner SOP Manu, which coordinates their work, and which has nominated the group as Natures Heroes for 2017.

Petrels and shearwaters nest on the steep inland slopes of the volcanic high islands of French Polynesia. They dig burrows in loose soil, or nest at ground level in crevices between rocks. The SOP Manu volunteers most often find themselves dealing with the Tahiti petrel (Pseudobulweria rostrata), which breeds across French Polynesia and beyond.

As on other islands across the world, the main threats to these ground-nesting species are introduced mammal predators, especially rats, feral cats, dogs and pigs that eat the eggs and young. But over the last 20 years, another danger has been identified on Tahiti: light pollution. When the fledglings take flight for the first time, they are often disorientated by the lights of the ever-growing urbanised areas nearby. Some fall to the ground and are unable to take off again, leaving them at risk of starving to death, or being eaten by cats or dogs. Others suffer potentially fatal injuries from collisions with buildings or fences.

Most uninjured birds only need a little help to resume their journeys out to sea. Although they struggle to take off on their own from a flat, hard surface, they usually take to the air quite easily if released on the sea. And thats where the volunteers of...

Tokyo's ambulance service sees busiest day in over 80 years as Japan shivers through coldest weather in decades Signs of the Times

Tokyo's ambulance service has experienced its busiest day in more than 80 years, officials said Thursday, amid icy conditions as the Japanese capital shivers through its coldest temperatures in decades. The Tokyo fire department, which runs the ambulance service, said it had responded to 2,826 calls on Wednesday following rare and heavy snow that sparked chaos in one of the world's most populous cities. "Generally, we receive more calls in winter. But we think the combination of influenza, heavy snow and cold weather contributed to the record high number," a fire department spokesman told AFP.

Officers from the Russian Center for Reconciliation of the opposing sides in Syria have arranged the return of more than 9,500 refugees to the Al-Buwaidah settlement in the Rif Dimashq province. "The negotiation process was rather difficult but we managed to succeed by making joint efforts," the Russian Center's spokesman Major General Viktor Pankov told reporters. "We made a joint working visit to the settlement, assessed the situation, particularly its security aspect," he said, adding that "we managed to bring back 1,500 families, which is more than 9,500 refugees."

Tokyo hit with lowest recorded temperature in 48 years Signs of the Times

As cold air blanketed wide areas of the nation on Thursday morning, the mercury in central Tokyo fell to a low of minus 4 degrees Celsius, the capital's lowest figure in 48 years. The bitter cold Wednesday - coming just days after the city's heaviest snowfall in four years - prompted the Meteorological Agency to issue a low temperature advisory for the 23 wards for the first time in over three decades. Shigeki Kawaguchi, an official of the agency's weather consultation center, said a similar warning was last issued in late January 1985. An advisory of this kind is issued when water inside pipes might freeze or pipes might rupture - or when crops might be damaged - according to the agency.

White House says they don't have approve release of FISA memo - House can de-classify it on their own Signs of the Times

The White House does not have to approve the release of a currently classified memo assembled within the House of representatives which purports to display extensive abuse of FISA authority within the FBI, deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley told WMAL Wednesday morning. "We don't have to approve it. They have the right to de-classify the document," Gidley told Daily Caller editorial director Vince Coglianese and WMAL host, citing "legal minds" consulted by the executive branch. House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes assembled the memo with fellow committee members and staff based on classified information turned over by the FBI and the DOJ. The document allegedly contains proof that the Obama administration abused its authority to obtain surveillance warrants on members of the 2016 Trump campaign. Congressman Steve King said the contents of the memo show a scandal "worse than Watergate." House rules allow the intelligence committee to take a vote to declassify information in the public interest. The president can object to the release of information but does not have to approve it. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said of the memo Tuesday the White House supports "full transparency, and we believe that that's at the House Intel Committee to make that decision at this point."

'Clinton Cash' author: Strzok-Page texts indicate apparent desire to 'proactively damage an elected President' they knew was innocent of 'collusion' Signs of the Times

"It seems to me you'd be concerned if there was something there, not if there's nothing there," said Peter Schweizer, Breitbart News's Senior editor-at-large, referencing FBI official Peter Strzok's expressed concern that no evidence existed corroborating narratives related to special counsel Robert Mueller's ostensible investigation into Russian political interference. Schweizer, the bestselling author of Clinton Cash and president of the Government Accountability Institute, made this comment during an interview Tuesday on SiriusXM's Breitbart News Tonight with co-hosts Rebecca Mansour and Joel Pollak. "Here's what's interesting," said Schweizer. "So [Peter Strzok is] texting to his girlfriend that there's nothing there, and even says that he's concerned that there's nothing there, which strikes me as kind of an odd statement. Maybe you can't read too much into it, but it seems to me you'd be concerned if there was something there, not if there's nothing there." Strzok sent the following text to FBI colleague and romantic partner Lisa Page on May 19, 2017, two days after Mueller's appointment as special counsel and weeks before he joined the Mueller-run probe: "You and I both know the odds are nothing. If I thought it was likely, I'd be there no question. I hesitate in part because of my gut sense and concern that there's no big there there."

John Pilger on the Mainstream Media and Imperial Power MintPress News

Emmy award-winning filmmaker John Pilger is among the most important political filmmakers of the 20th and 21st century. From Vietnam to Palestine to atomic war, Pilgers work has been on the cutting edge, and his stinging critique of western media has always be revelatory. And, no doubt, his biting analysis is more relevant and important now than ever.  His latest film, The Coming War on China powerfully presages the growing potential for war between the US and China.

Randy Credico and Dennis J Bernstein spoke with Pilger on January 18 about the multiple failures of the corporate press in fanning the phony flames of Russiagate, and turning its back on Julian Assangeacting more like prosecutors than journalists, whose responsibility it is to monitor the centers of power and report back to the people.

They also spoke with Pilger about the recent decision by the British Library to acquire his substantial works and invaluable archives and make them readily available to a much wider audience:

Dennis Bernstein: Congratulations, John.  Your work has now been made a part of the collection at the British Library.

John Pilger: To see all my written work over the years go onto a single hard drive was a sobering experience.  I am pleased, however, because now in the digital age people can access all of my work and I myself can access information I may have forgotten.

Dennis Bernstein: I would like to read a little of what they said on the record when they welcomed your material into the library.  They write, Throughout his career, John Pilger has demonstrated the power and significance of investigative journalism in uncovering stories of people who have been ignored by the mainstream media or left otherwise without voice.  His groundbreaking work in Cambodia revealed the devastation caused by the Khmer Rouge and his film Year Zero: The Silent Death of Cambodia has subsequently been described as one of the ten most influential documentaries of the twentieth century.

I would like to read now a little of the statement that you sent to the Worlds Socialist Conference where they were discussing the deep nature of censorship.  You wrote, Something has changed.  Although the media was always a loose extension of capital power, it is now almost fully integrated.  Dissent, once tolerated in the mainstream, has now regressed to a metaphoric underground as liberal capitalism moves toward a form of corporate dictatorship.  And it is getting worse at an exponential rate, wouldnt you say?

We Will Remember Freedom : Why It Matters that Ursula K. Le Guin Was an Anarchist CrimethInc.

Ursula K. Le Guin

Ive never liked the part of the story when the mentor figure dies and the young heroes say they arent ready to go it alone, that they still need her. Ive never liked it because it felt clichd and because I want to see intergenerational struggle better represented in fiction.

Today I dont like that part of the story because I dont feel ready.

Last week, I lived in the same world as Ursula Le Guin, a grandmaster of science fiction who accepted awards by decrying capitalism and seemed, with every breath, to speak of the better worlds we can create. On Monday, January 22, 2018, she passed away. She was 88 years old and she knew it was coming, and of course my sorrow is for myself and my own loss and not for a woman who, after a lifetime of good work fighting for what she believed, died loved.

Its also a sorrow, though, to have lost one of the most brilliant anarchists the world has ever known. Especially now, as we start into the hard times she said were coming.

To be clear, Ursula Le Guin didnt, as I understand it, call herself an anarchist. I asked her about this. She told me that she didnt call herself an anarchist because she didnt feel that she deserved toshe didnt do enough. I asked her if it was OK for us to call her one. She said shed be honored.

Ursula, I promise you, the honor is ours.


When I think about anarchist fiction, the first story that comes into my head is a simple one, called Ile Forest, which appeared in Le Guins 1976 collection Orsinian Tales. The narrative is framed by two men discussing the nature of crime and law. One suggests that some crimes are simply unforgivable. The other refutes it. Murder, surely, argues the one, that isnt for self-defense, is unforgivable.

The chief narrator of the story then goes on to relate a story of a murdera vile one, a misogynist onethat leaves you with both discomfort and with the awareness that no, in that particular case, there would be no justice in seeking vengeance or legal repercussions against the murderer.

In a few thousand words, without even trying, she undermines the readers faith in both codified legal systems and vigilante justice.

It wasnt that Le Guin carried her politics into her work. Its that the same spirit animated both her writing and her politics. In her 2015 blog post Utopiyin, Utopiyang she writes:

The kind of thinking we are, at last, beginning to do about how to change the goals of human domination and unlimited growth to those of human adaptability and long-term survival is a shift from yang to yin, and so involves acceptance of impermanence and imperfection, a patience with uncertainty and the makeshift, a friendship with water, darkness, and the eart...

Politico blames toxic masculinity for mass shootings Signs of the Times

Oh, what the hell is this? We're about to have a titanic duel on immigration and protections for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals recipients. We recently had to endure a shoddy and sloppy three-day government shutdown triggered by Congressional Democrats over this issue, which yielded them nothing; the GOP already agreed to fund their initiatives (i.e. Children's Health Insurance Program) and take up DACA. Democrats learned that shutting down the government for illegal aliens is not popular. Putting the interests of illegal aliens over American citizens isn't good either. You know what's also bad, talking about mass shootings through the progressive lens of toxic masculinity and other issues that give left wing whack jobs the appearance of credibility in higher education, as well as a job.

9 Lessons to Learn Before You Die Awareness Act

We are all going to die someday and there are many things we need to learn before then. Sadly, most people go their whole lives never realizing the things that they should.

These are things that can and will change your mindset big time. They are things that some of us realize as time goes by. The more we grow and learn the more our minds expand. Below you will find a list of things we should all realize at some point in our lives. Really be open-minded when you read these things and take them in for what they are.

9 Things We Should All Come to Understand Before We Die:

1. BE YOURSELF

Be who you are and dont let anyone else tell you who you should be. Other people dont have to accept you. And while other peoples opinions may seem like they matter, in the grand scheme of things, they dont.

2. We should never waste time on people who dont care about us.

People who dont care about us are not worth our time. We should only give power to those who matter. If someone is bringing us down, we should cut them out of our lives.

3. We are only victims if we choose to be.

We are not the victims unless we let ourselves be. We can turn ANYTHING into something better. There is something to be learned from everything that happens in life. Choose to overcome the things you have experienced in life.

4. Tomorrow is NEVER guaranteed.

Sometimes we are facing the last day of our lives and we arent even aware, to be honest, this is how things go MOST of the time. We should be as present as possible because you never know when something terrible is going to happen. Practice mindfulness more.

5. We all face failure in life.

No one in life has been able to succeed at everything. We all face failure at one point or another. There is no such thing as perfect.

6. Age is just a number.

Just because someone is old does not mean they are wise and this also goes for young people. You can be old and still do things you love. Nothing is wrong with living your life how you want to.

7. Change is a good thing.

There is nothing wrong with a little change. Change is something we all face. Even when things change in a bad way these changes are still going to bring about something good in the long run. Learn the lessons laid forth for you.

8. You are not always right.

You are not always right, let me say it again for the people in the back YOU ARE NOT ALWAYS RIGHT! Sometimes we are wrong, and this is something we need to understand. There is nothing wrong with accepting that you were wrong and learning something new. We all have room to grow in life.

French prison guards on strike in 129 out of 188 French facilities - risk sanctions Signs of the Times

French prison authorities warned Wednesday that protesting prison guards were risking fines or sanctions on the movement's 10th day, with actions at 129 prisons. Guards seeking improved working conditions and better safety measures set up picket lines or blocked prison entrances. Guards at 16 prisons "put down their keys" - meaning they refused all work - a move which triggers a demand for police and gendarmes to do the guards' job, a Prison Administration official said. The official, confirming French press reports, said that letters sent to prison directors laid out possible financial or disciplinary sanctions against protesting personnel, including job suspensions of five to 15 days. The official was not authorized to speak publicly and could not be identified by name. The official said sanctions were not automatic and could be handed out but then "suspended" and would be decided on a case-by-case basis. Prison guards are forbidden from going on strike, and the possibility of issuing suspended sanctions appeared to be a tactic to soften the blow. It was not immediately known whether any prison directors had decided to levy sanctions against protesting personnel.

Why Kids Today Seem to Have Little Respect for Anything Awareness Act

Have you ever noticed how different children in current times are when compared to the generations before them? This is something I think about quite often.

What made things end up the way that they have? Where did the mold get broken? Is there ANYTHING we can do to fix society in current times?

These questions are not questions that come with easy answers, as much as I would like for them to be. I feel like the children of today dont respect anything because they werent taught to. Dont get me wrong, there are a few who do have respect, but the vast majority doesnt know what it is like to even have to save up their allowance to buy something they want.

Children today have everything handed to them and they lack the connection they need to have with their parents. The children of today see their parents as nothing more than money signs and in some cases iron fists. The children are either afraid of them or using them, there is not much left in-between the two.

When I was a child I saw the hard work my parents were putting into keeping me going. They were working their asses off just so I could have the things that I needed all the while many children in current times are playing on their iPhones completely unaware that there is a world moving outside of that screen. We are too focused on the areas that we shouldnt be focused on.

As a whole, parents of modern times are letting their children down unknowingly. Doing better for your child does not have to include being sure that they have an iPad glued to their hands 24/7. We need to make our children work harder and really teach them how to get their hands dirty. Set a good example by giving them exactly what they give you.

Dont be the parent that is afraid to stand up and speak out for fear of upsetting your child. You need to teach your children that life does not come with any trigger warnings. Respect and true dedication is rare that much I know is true. Show your kids that you love them in ways other than showering them with gifts.

You cannot take material things with you when you die. When you die you leave this world with nothing. You dont have to have the nicest stuff to be happy and neither do your children.

Respect yourself and act accordingly. Be a good parent and do everything you can to help your child become who he or she was meant to be. We are not supposed to be our childrens friends. We are meant to be their mothers and fathers, the ones they turn to when the rest of the world hates them.

Who Is Deliberately Killing the Beesand Why? The Daily Sheeple

bees

By Cat Ellis

Last night, my husband attended our beekeeping association meeting. He was looking forward to it all day. Talking with other bee people is exciting, chatting about the upcoming spring, opening up the hives after winter, installing new bees, etc. I couldnt wait for him to come home to with new beekeeping ideas and to see his face light up as he waxed poetic about beekeeping.

Only, that didnt happen. Instead, he brought back a story that chilled me to my bones about someone deliberately killing the bees just a few towns away from us in Rehoboth, MA.

Just Another Accidental Spraying?

We read about the bee deaths when it happened. Early reports seemed to suggest this was yet another case of farmers in the vicinity being irresponsible with chemicals. That may have been what investigators originally suspected, as hypothesized by Eric Pilotte, the president of the Bristol County Beekeepers Association. In this interview, Pilotte spoke of how bees can forage up to three miles away and may have brought back poisoned pollen and nectar to the hive.

All indications are it was some type of pesticide or insecticide thats the culprit, Pilotte said. In this case, they were able to bring back some of those contaminants and I think thats what spread like wildfire through the hive.

Fellow association member, entomologist and retired superintendent of the Bristol County Mosquito Control Project, Wayne Andrews, thought it had to have happened closer to home.

Andrews said bees can fly as far as three or four miles in search of food and water but he suspects the Rehoboth bees consumed the poison closer to home, likely no more than a mile away.

In another article on this bee killing, the state was called in to investigate.

Andrews, a beekeeper for four decades who has had his own hives killed by neighbors spraying, called in the state Department of Agricultural Resources, which sent an inspector Friday morning who took samples to test for pesticides.

But, that is where the news reports ended...

Bruce Lees Unpublished Letters Reveal His Process to Personal Awakening Awareness Act

For anyone who may not be aware, Bruce Lee kept a small journal of his private thoughts. Lee has been known for his roles in films and martial arts skills but he was so much more than he has been given credit for. In fact, this man was far wiser than anyone could have imagined.

Bruce Lee is easily one of the most underrated hidden philosophers I have ever come across. We are able to read parts of his journal thanks to the Bruce Lee Estates and I could not be more grateful. As you may know, martial arts has a lot to do with spirituality. It involves understanding life at all stages and comes with a lot of commitment.

In his writings he went over his spiritual awakening and it is something we all need to read. His personal journey to awareness was intense and special. While these things were never published they are extremely important. If you are wondering who you are and where you should go from here this might give you a good idea.

Bruce Lee Estate

 

In his writings Lee has said as follows in regards to his awakening:

At the moment Im wondering for whom am I writing this organized mess? I have to say I am writing whatever wants to be written.

I have come to the realization that sooner or later what it really amounts to is the bare fact that even an attempt to really write something about ones self-demands, first of all, an honesty towards oneself to be able to take responsibility to be what we actually are.

What it boils down to is my sincere and honest revelation of a man called Bruce Lee. Just who is Bruce Lee? Where is he heading? What does he hope to discover? To do this a person has to stand on his own two feet and find out the cause of ignorance. For the lazy and hopeless, they can forget it and do what they like best.

Of course, this writing can be made less demanding should I allow myself to indulge in the standard manipulating game of role-playing, but my responsibility to myself disallows that I do want to be honest, that is the least a human being can do I have always been a martial artist by choice, an actor by profession, but above all, am actualizing myself someday to be an artist of life. Yes, there is a difference between self-actualization and self-image actualization.

I have come to accept life as a process, and am satisfied that in my ever-going process, I am constantly discovering, expanding, finding the cause of my ignorance, in martial art and especially in life. In short, to be real

Fancy Bears reveals formula for Western athletes' success: 'Asthma + TUE = Olympic medals' Signs of the Times

Hacker group Fancy Bears has released emails obtained from the International Luge Federation (FIL) showing "widespread Therapeutic Use Exemptions [TUE]" and missed doping tests concerning a number of its athletes. TUEs, issued to athletes whose illness or health conditions require usage of a particular banned substance, have long been criticized by sports officials and athletes who insist that competitors with medical exemptions have an advantage over their contemporaries. "The TUE-granting process showed its effectiveness among the runners who are eager to obtain permission to take asthma medications prohibited in sports, in particular, salbutamol which opens airways to and from the lungs. The same practice is widespread among skiers," the Fancy Bears' statement read. "According to the chief physician of the Norwegian ski team, Petter Olberg, 70 percent of the national team skiers suffer from asthma. It raises doubts and looks like an institutional conspiracy by the Norwegian Olympic Committee and national sports federations," they added.

Time for a boycott: Pets snatched from owners are cruelly butchered for meat in Indonesian markets Signs of the Times

Nine in ten dogs slaughtered weekly for their meat across Indonesia are pets that have been stolen from their owners or snatched from the streets, animal rights activists claim. Each week, thousands of dogs are being bludgeoned in public, blow-torched alive, and butchered to be eaten in North Sulawesi, Indonesia. Activists for the Dog Meat-Free Indonesia campaign say there may be as many as 200 'live animal markets' in the province. Investigations by Animal Friends Manado Indonesia estimate that 90 per cent of the animals have been stolen from their owners' homes or from the streets. Some 80 per cent of them are imported from other provinces in Indonesia, which is illegal under the country's anti-rabies law forbidding the movement of dogs across provincial borders.

Off the hook: Temp spending bill relieves intel agencies from oversight Signs of the Times

Against the wishes of leaders of the Senate Intelligence Committee, the newly enacted continuing resolution that funds the government until Feb. 8 contains a House-sought provision that could allow intelligence agencies to transfer funds to new operations without congressional approval. Section 148 reads: "Funds appropriated by the Department of Defense Missile Defeat and Defense Enhancements Appropriation Act, 2018 (division B of Public Law 115-96) may be obligated and expended notwithstanding section 504(a)(1) of the National Security Act of 1947." The new leeway was sought by the Pentagon and the Office of Management and Budget, according to the Federation of American Scientists Secrecy News blog summarizing a story first reported by The Intercept. "The vice chairman of the Intelligence Committee and I were notified when the House CR appeared that there was language in it that was different than in the past," said panel Chairman Richard Burr, R-N.C., on Monday, after the language was defended by Appropriations Committee Chairman Thad Cochran, R-Miss. Burr called the provision "troublesome" and "untenable." Burr argued that "this language can erode the powers of the authorizing committee. Effectively, the intelligence community could expend funds as it sees fit without an authorization bill in place and with no statutory direction indicating that an authorization bill for 2018 is forthcoming." An unidentified congressional staffer told the Washington Examiner that the change mainly affects missile defense funds and "does not give the intelligence community a blank check" or affect the role of the intelligence panels. That view was rejected by Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., the intelligence panel's ranking member. "If this exemption is granted," he said during floor debate, "you could potentially have an administration - any administration - go off and take on covert activities, for example, with no ability for our committee, which spends the time and has the oversight, to say timeout or to say we actually disagree with that policy."

Iran, as Supporter of Self-Determination, a Thorn in Imperial Washingtons Side MintPress News

WASHINGTON (Analysis) Washingtons hostility towards the Islamic Republic of Iran dates back nearly 40 years to February of 1979, when revolutionary forces overthrew the Western-backed monarchy of Mohammad Reza Shah.

The United States consistently maintains that its involvement began with the hostage crisis in 1979 and continues today due to Irans ballistic missile and nuclear program, as well as meddling throughout the region in places like Syria, Lebanon, and now Yemen (albeit without evidence in some cases).

What the media and Western governments dont mention is that Irans core ideology stands directly opposed to U.S. military and economic expansion. The Islamic Republics promotion of self-determination indeed poses an existential threat to Washingtons dominance throughout the entire region similar to that of communism during the Cold War.

However, the Islamic Republic of Iran is nothing like the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Despite the medias almost childlike ignorance, Tehran and Riyadh stand at direct odds due to pervasive ideological differences rather than simple Sunni-Shia sectarian disagreements.

But why is Tehran such a thorn in Washingtons side and why have tensions recently increased?

To answer this, its important to understand the key ideological differences between the United States and Iran, as well as how these differences play out on the geopolitical landscape.

Grenfell Tower survivor gives birth to baby Dear Kitty. Some blog

 Grenfell Tower fire survivor Maryam Adam and her son Mohammed (screen grab) Daily Mirror

From daily The Independent in Britain:

Grenfell Tower survivor who suffered two miscarriages gives birth to miracle baby

Maryam Adam believes son Mohammed is youngest survivor of disaster

Tom Embury-Dennis

Thursday 25 January 2018 13:39 GMT

A pregnant Grenfell Tower survivor who previously suffered two miscarriages has given birth to a miracle baby boy.

Maryam Adam said she believed her son, Mohammed, was the youngest survivor of the blaze.

But the mother feared her child would never arrive after she was left traumatised by the fire, which claimed 71 lives.

We lost our home, we lost friends, we lost everything, she told The Mirror. I was so worried I was going to have another miscarriage. We saw everything. I had many friends there.

Ms Adam said Mohammeds birth in November had given her and husband, Abdulwahab, a reason to be positive again.

He is a miracle, she said. When I first saw his face I was so, so happy. I think he is the youngest survivor. I will tell him when he is older I will tell him to thank God that hes alive.

Ms Adam was three months pregnant when the fire broke out at the tower block in North Kensington, west London, on 14 June.

The 40-year-old said she saw everything from beginning to end, as she was one of the first to escape due to living on the fourth floor.

Olympic Games In South Korea Perfect Opportunity For A False Flag Attack? The Sleuth Journal

Olympic Games In South Korea - Perfect Opportunity For A False Flag Attack? | missilenk1 | False Flags Sleuth Journal Special Interests War Propaganda World News

(Alt-Market.com) The war rhetoric surrounding North Korea on both sides of the Pacific has never been more aggressive than it has been the past year (at least not since the Korean War). There are some people that see the entire affair as a distraction, a distraction that will never amount to actual conflict. I disagree with this sentiment for a number of reasons.

North Korea is indeed a distraction, but still a distraction in the making. That is to say, the chest beating and saber rattling are merely a prelude to the much more effective distraction of live combat and invasion in the name of regime change and national security. As I noted in my article Korean War Part II: Why Its Probably Going To Happen, the extensive staging of military assets to the region that has not been seen in over a decade, the extremely swift advancement of North Korean missile technology to include ICBMs capable of reaching the mainland U.S., the strange and unprecedented language by China indicating that they will not intercede against an invasion of North Korea by the U.S. if Pyongyang attacks first. All of this and more shows a clear movement of chess pieces into place for a sudden action.

According to these factors, I am led to believe that a false flag event blamed on North Korea, or a prodding of North Korea into taking an attack posture, is likely. The purposes behind such a war would be many-fold. Primarily, the final implosion of the vast financial bubbles created by central bank stimulus measures could be undertaken while the banks themselves escape public blame or prosecution.

A geopolitical crisis large enough would provide a perfect scapegoat for an economic crisis that was going to develop eventually anyway. And, if this geopolitical crisis were initiated by a rogue state,...

Russian doping scandal: Rodchenkov can't get his story straight when testifying against Russians at CAS appeal Signs of the Times

Former Moscow Anti-Doping Laboratory chief Grigory Rodchenkov reportedly "tied himself up in knots" while testifying against Russians who are appealing their lifetime Olympic bans at the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS). This week Rodchenkov - who claims the tampering of doping samples of Russian athletes took place under his supervision at the 2014 Sochi Olympics - addressed the court in Geneva, Switzerland, via video link with his face hidden from the appellants. Lawyer Artyom Patsev, acting in the interests of Russian athletes at CAS, said that Rodchenkov's testimony given at the court hearing on Monday contradicts the information on alleged Russian doping that he provided to the New York Times in May 2016. Back then, the American outlet published an article based on Rodchenkov's allegations, in which it claimed that an overwhelming majority of Russian athletes were "part of a state-run doping program, meticulously planned for years to ensure dominance at the [2014 Sochi] Games."

70+ Yazidi mass graves discovered in Mosul Signs of the Times

The number of mass graves containing the relics of people from the Iraqi Yazidi minority discovered in Mosul has reached 70. Alghad Press quoted a source at al-Shohadaa (martyrs) institution saying that technical teams have explored more than 70 mass graves in Sinjar, Tal Afar and Al-Baaj, adding that a large number of those belonged to Yazidis killed under Islamic State militants' rule. Based on the Iraqi constitution, al-Shohadaa is tasked with assisting families of victims of injustice under the regime of late president Saddam Hussein. According to the source, many of those graves are prone to damage due to weather factors and grubbing animals. The source said the institution does not, however, possess a database of families who had lost members in a way that enables authorities to identify the affiliation of dead bodies.

US claims it kills 150 ISIS fighters in Syrian airstrikes - Syria claims they killed 15 civilians Signs of the Times

The US-led coalition fighting Isis said it killed 150 militants in air strikes over the weekend which targeted a headquarters and command centre in Syria's Euphrates River Valley. Intelligence gathering on the ground by the Syrian Democratic Forces enabled US Navy F/A-18 warplanes and one unmanned drone to, a coalition statement said. Those in the targeted location were exclusively Isis members, it said, adding that the location had been under constant surveillance, ruling out civilian casualties. "The precision strikes were a culmination of extensive intelligence preparation to confirm an Isis headquarters and command and control centre in an exclusively Isis-occupied location in the contested middle Euphrates River Valley," the statement said. Major General James Jarrard, the commander of the coalition's Special Operations Joint Task Force in Syria, said: "The strikes underscore our assertion that the fight to liberate Syria is far from over."

Well water levels changed in Florida after Alaska earthquake Signs of the Times

After Tuesday's earthquake off of Alaska, some water levels in Florida went up, more than 3000 miles away. Water levels in Florida wells changed briefly after Tuesday's earthquake in the Gulf of Alaska. Seismic waves traveling through the earth often cause groundwater changes after earthquakes. Tuesday's 7.9 magnitude earthquake in the Gulf of Alaska sent vibrations through the earth that caused water to rise and fall in wells in Florida, thousands of miles away. Sensors near Fort Lauderdale and Madison, near the Georgia border, showed a minor change in water levels after the earthquake, according to the United States Geological Survey (USGS).

Kiev is the aggressor: UN reports 90% of civilian casualties in Ukraine conflict within Lugansk and Donetsk regions Signs of the Times

The UN Commission for Human Rights has noted that 90% of civilian casualties in Donbass lived within the territory of Lugansk or Donetsk republics (as opposed to the Kiev- controlled territory of Donbass.) This was stated by political scientist Denis Denisov at a press conference in Moscow. "These figures are most authoritative and illustrative. They demonstrate the most important thing - which side is conducting a defensive war, and which - the offensive," Denisov said. According to him, the OSCE mission constantly notes the absence of Ukrainian military equipment. At the same time, the Ukrainian military prevents access of the monitoring mission to certain sites. OSCE representatives have recorded attempts by the Ukrainian army to shoot down unmanned aerial vehicles belonging to the mission. The Ukrainian military responded that there have been no orders to stop the fire.

The sorry fate of most Washington allies - Syrian Kurds latest to be betrayed and abandoned Signs of the Times

One would be mistaken to believe the recent aggravation of the Syrian crisis triggered by the launch of Turkey's Operation Olive Branch along Syria's northern border, which has already resulted in military casualties suffered by both the Turkish and Kurdish sides, came as a surprise for those following the conflict carefully. There's also no denying the fact that the bloody Turkish-Kurdish confrontation already resulting in a considerable civilian death toll is an avid example of the two-faced policies of Washington, when former allies of the US are now being used as bargaining chips. Back in August of 2016, Ankara would show the world that it entered Syria with a fixed goal in mind that had little to nothing in common with fighting the Islamic State (ISIS). At that time, when Turkey launched an assault on Jarabulus, numerous media experts were not afraid to openly state that Ankara was going after Kurdish armed groups by taking this step.

Trump imposes stiff tariffs on imported solar panels, washing machines to protect US manufacturers Signs of the Times

President Donald Trump imposed stiff tariffs on imported solar panels and washing machines Monday, aiming to protect U.S. manufacturers. The U.S. Trade Representative's office made the recommendation to the president for the tariffs. It said the independent U.S. International Trade Commission found that such imports were a "substantial cause of serious injury to domestic manufacturers." "The president's actions make clear again that the Trump administration will always defend American workers, farmers, ranchers and businesses," U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer said Monday. Trump has often promised to get tough with China and other exporters that he says compete unfairly with U.S. manufacturers. The tariffs start out at 30 percent on solar panels and decline over time. On imported washers, they begin at 20 percent on the first 1.2 million machines and jump to 50 percent before also declining.

Thousands of wild horses in western US face slaughter as government proposes new regulations to control herds Signs of the Times

A wild mustang charging across an open plain is a symbol of the untamed majesty of nature. But the predators chasing these horses are anything but natural. Controversy has broken out over the U.S. Bureau of Land Management's (BLM) practice of using helicopters to herd horses off public lands and sometimes permanently put them into holding facilities in an effort to control their population. "Sometimes these horses get stampeded for miles and miles," said Simone Netherlands, an animal rights activist and a spokesperson for the American Wild Horse Campaign. Now the government is considering culling these animals for the first time in nearly 50 years, putting the lives of thousands of wild horses at stake. Most of the U.S.'s estimated 75,000 wild horses live on public lands, usually vast expanses that the government controls in the American West.

Cop who beat innocent woman is caught on video AGAIN stomping a man's head Signs of the Times

Pulled over for driving 15 mph over the speed limit, an elementary school teacher was recorded on police dash cam video being slammed to the ground twice by an overly aggressive cop. After the woman was placed in the back of a patrol car, two separate videos caught the arresting officer making false statements regarding the arrest and another officer making racist comments to the restrained teacher. In spite of the glaring evidence against him, the officer responsible for the brutality, Brian Richter, did not face charges. He was allowed to remain a cop and has struck again. After the incident, a grand jury did not indict him. The grand jury heard 13 hours of testimony from eight different witnesses over a three-week period before returning the irresponsible decision. As a result of their failure to hold this violent cop accountable, another person was victimized. Just like the first offense, the second one was also captured on video. This time, Richter and Detective Steven McCurley were captured on video assaulting a drug suspect and then they were caught lying about it. Sadly enough, as the video below illustrates, this officer has been captured in multiple videos assaulting multiple people, many of whom were women.

Human brains attained round shape over 200,000 years or more Signs of the Times

But scientists are still debating what caused changes in noggin form Big brains outpaced well-rounded brains in human evolution. Around the time of the origins of our species 300,000 years ago, the brains of Homo sapiens had about the same relatively large size as they do today, new research suggests. But rounder noggins rising well above the forehead - considered a hallmark of human anatomy - didn't appear until between about 100,000 and 35,000 years ago, say physical anthropologist Simon Neubauer and his colleagues. Using CT scans of ancient and modern human skulls, the researchers created digital brain reconstructions, based on the shape of the inner surface of each skull's braincase. Human brains gradually evolved from a relatively flatter and elongated shape - more like that of Neandertals' - to a globe shape thanks to a series of genetic tweaks to brain development early in life, the researchers propose January 24 in Science Advances. A gradual transition to round brains may have stimulated considerable neural reorganization by around 50,000 years ago. That cognitive reworking could have enabled a blossoming of artwork and other forms of symbolic behavior among Stone Age humans, the team suspects. Other researchers have argued, however, that abstract and symbolic thinking flourished even before H. sapiens emerged (SN: 12/27/14, p. 6).
