ISIS Likely Behind Suicide Bombing That Killed 25 Students in Afghanistan MintPress News

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) A suicide bomber targeted students preparing for university exams in a Shiite neighborhood of Kabul on Wednesday, killing at least 25 young men and women studying together in an attack that was blamed on Deash (ISIS).

Najib Danish, spokesman for the Afghan Interior Ministry, said at least 35 people were also wounded in the attack that struck a private building in the Shiite Dasht-i Barcha area of Kabul. He feared the casualty toll could rise further.

The explosion initially set off gunfire from Afghan guards in the area, leading to assumptions that there were more attackers involved, but officials later said all indications were that there was only one bomber.

No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack but Jawad Ghawari, a member of the citys Shiite clerical council, blamed Deash (ISIS), which has carried similar attacks in the past, hitting mosques, schools and cultural centers.

In the past two years, Ghawari said there were at least 13 attacks on the Shiite community in Kabul alone.

Abdul Hossain Hossainzada, a Shiite community leader in the neighborhood in western Kabul, said the bomber apparently targeted the course, which had young men and women studying together.

Both the resurgent Taliban and the IS affiliate in Afghanistan target Shiites, considering them to be heretics. Zabihullah Mujahid, the Taliban spokesman, denied any involvement by the group in the Kabul attack.

Wednesdays assault comes amid a particularly bloody week in Afghanistan. A Taliban assault on two adjacent checkpoints in northern Afghanistan late on Tuesday night killed at least 30 soldiers and policemen, officials said.

The attack took place in northern Baghlan province, in the Baghlan-I Markazi district, said Mohammad Safdar Mohseni, the head of the provincial council. Dilawar Aymaq, a parliamentarian from Baghlan, said the attack targeted a military checkpoint and another manned by the so-called local police, militias recruited and paid by the Interior Ministry.

Abdul Hai Nemati, the governor of Baghlan, said at least nine security forces were still missing and four others were wounded in the attack. He said reinforcements have been dispatched to help recapture the checkpoints.

Mujahid, the Taliban spokesman, claimed responsibility for the assault.

Meanwhile, life was gradually returning to normal in parts of the eastern city of Ghazni after a massive, days-long Taliban attack, though sporadic gunbattles still underway in some neighborhoods.

Afghans emerged from their homes and some shops reopened in Ghazni, where the Taliban launched a coordinated offensive last Friday, overwhelming the citys defenses and capturing several neighborhoods. Afghan forces repelled the initial assault and in recent days have struggled to flush the insurgents out of residential areas where they are holed up.

Colorado Is Going After Jack Phillips of Masterpiece Cakeshop Again The Daily Sheeple

  • Jack Phillips of Masterpiece Cakeshop fame is suing the Colorado Civil Rights Commission.
  • The Commission commenced new proceedings against Phillips on behalf of a transgender complainant just weeks after he prevailed at the U.S. Supreme Court.
  • Phillips attorneys say the Commission is engaged in a concerted campaign to destroy him, which is unlawful.

Jack Phillips, the Christian baker who prevailed at the U.S. Supreme Court after declining to create a custom wedding cake for a gay couple, filed a lawsuit in federal court late Tuesday suing the Colorado Civil Rights Commission.

Phillips and his attorneys at the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) say the Commission has revived its campaign against him following Junes high court decision, singling Masterpiece Cakeshop out for disparate treatment on the basis of their religious beliefs.

The state of Colorado is ignoring the message of the U.S. Supreme Court by continuing to single out Jack for punishment and to exhibit hostility toward his religious beliefs, said Kristen Waggoner, an Alliance Defending Freedom attorney who represents Phillips. Even though Jack serves all customers and simply declines to create custom cakes that express messages or celebrate events in violation of his deeply held beliefs, the government is intent on destroying him something the Supreme Court has already told it not to do.

On the same day the high court agreed to review the Masterpiece case, an attorney named Autumn Scardina called Phillips shop and asked him to create a cake celebrating a sex transition. The caller asked that the cake include a blue exterior and a pink interior, a reflection of Scardinas transgender identity. Phillips declined to create the cake, given his religious conviction that sex is immutable, while offering to sell the caller other pre-made baked goods. (RELATED: Christian Baker Prevails At Supreme Court In Same-Sex Wedding Cake Dispute)

In the months that followed, the bakery received requests for cakes featuring marijuana use, sexually explicit messages, and Satanic symbols. One solicitation submitted by email asked the cake shop to create a three-tiered white cake depicting Satan licking a functional 9 inch dildo. Phillips believes Scardina made all these requests.

Scardina filed a complaint with the civil rights commission, alleging discrimination on the basis of gender identity. The matter was held in abeyance while the Supreme Court adjudicated the Masterpiece case.

Three weeks after Phillips won at the high court, the commission issued...

Deep States Armed Drone Failed Assassination Attempt on Maduro Operation Disclosure



Source: Geopolitics

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has been targeted in an attempted attack during a televised public address, officials confirm. Several explosives-laden drones detonated as he was speaking at a military ceremony.

Venezuela's Information Minister Jorge Rodriguez has confirmed that an attack on Maduro took place at the event. Several drones rigged with explosives went off close to the presidential box during the address.



"All the investigations have indicated that (the explosions) were an attack on President Nicholas Maduro," Rodriguez told media.

Maduro has been moved to safety and is carrying on with his duties, he said. Seven National Guard soldiers have been injured as a result of the failed assassination, according to Rodriguez. The extent of their injuries has not been revealed.

"It was an attack to kill me, they tried to assassinate me today," Maduro himself stated following the assault.
"That drone was coming for me."

11 Million Reasons for Hate on Russia by Wall Street & London Operation Disclosure



Source: Geopolitics

Why does the US media have an anti-Russian fixation? It's not what the American people want to hear. 71% of the Ronald Reagan-loving, military-obsessed Republican Party approve of Trump meeting with Putin.

On the other side, top liberal CNN commentator and former President Obama's adviser, Van Jones has admitted in a video recording that the "Russiagate" story is a "big nothing burger" which Democrats are not interested in. The Russia-fixated, Hillary Clinton-DNC liberal establishment now faces an upsurge of opposition from Democratic Socialists like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders, who emphasize the need for populist economics reforms.

Conservatives don't want to hear it. Liberals don't want to hear it. Hating Russia is just not a bandwagon the U.S. public is ready to jump on. Yet, if one turns on American television, in the aftermath of the summit in Helsinki, the rhetoric and accusations against the government of the Russian Federation are almost endless.

Like Trump, Obama was also unable to resolve the tensions now being described as the "New Cold War." Let's not forget that Obama was elected saying he would "talk to Putin". In the early years of Obama's first term, he said he intended to "reset" relations with the Eurasian superpower, and was attacked for it by the Tea Party. The American people favor better relations with Russia, and politicians win votes for promising it, yet the dangerous trajectory continues. Why?

A New Day in the Energy Markets

One answer can be found in the field of economics. On July 18th, crude oil production in the United States reached 11 million barrels per day. This is the highest it has ever been. The drilling and fracking rigs are pulling more oil out of the ground and shale than ever before in U.S. history.

New Ebola Outbreak in Congo -- Part of a Bigger Conflict? Operation Disclosure



Source: Geopolitics

As many are already aware of, the China-led Belt and Road Initiative to interconnect the Eurasian Economy with Africa, Latin America, Southeast Asia and the rest of the world has been gaining a lot of traction since its formal announcement in 2013 by Xi Jinping.

This earned a lot of global influence in the region for China. The losing side, however, is not watching idly by as it loses large chucks of its empire, one by one.



This is in addition to its collapsing control of the global financial system that has been stripped away systematically with the elaborate exposure of the Libor interest rates rigging, gold and silver price rigging, and multi-trillion money laundering schemes involving mafia money and sovereign wealth of Asian kingdoms.



Add to that is the ineffective mass media anti-Russia narrative that is also designed to undermine the Trump administration that is seeking transactional peace accords abroad.

With all of the above, the CIA has openly considered that it is China which is the most dangerous enemy to the Deep State's wellbeing. But what could they do at the time when they could not pay their mercenaries anymore?

A week after the most recent Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo was declared over, the country has confirmed it has found more cases of the disease.

The Hunt for the Deadly Syria "White Helmets Operation Disclosure



Source: Geopolitics

Refugees are beginning to return to Syria as the Damascus government clears out the last of the terrorists from all but Idlib Province. There, al Qaeda and the White Helmets are still active, holding a civilian population in terror, rounding up political prisoners, executing hundreds and planning more chemical attacks so that President Trump will protect their reign of terror.

This is the simple truth of it.

Why America Uses Terror

Few are aware to what extent the American military, the highest paid in the world, was decimated during the contrived War on Terror. Hundreds of thousands were maimed, more wasted away in endless "deployments" while tens of thousands killed themselves.

Pentagon funds are better spent on missiles, aircraft carriers and mercenaries while Washington political insiders rake off billions in graft.

War had to change, false flag terror, fake aid and refugee groups, fake news and standoff missile attacks while sanctions, blockades and assassinations took their toll. Key to America's war, or perhaps more appropriately, the war America is fighting on behalf of globalist interests, is a group known as the "White Helmets."

A Syrian child, living under ISIS terror, is dragged off the street. Bleach is poured on his head by, of all things, a fake first responder wearing a strange white bicycle helmet. His parents are terrified, other children kidnapped in a similar war are found dead, mutilated after being hacked and bashed, then dragged around repeatedly before video teams from Reuters and Aljazeera, fake atrocity victims to justify American military action against Syria.

The child is then dragged into a local hospital where a doctor, held at gunpoint, pretends to examine the terrified child while filming goes on.

Fear and loathing intensified domestically and geopolitically by the US Signs of the Times

As I write this news came of the attempt on President Maduro's life, additional "sanctions" against Iran, North Korea, Syria and Russia, a ramping up of the economic warfare against China through the use of trade tariffs, threats of war against all of those nations and dangerous alarms from within the USA that the upcoming midterm elections for Congress are being threatened by Russia. The western media have spun the failed attempt on Maduro as a staged event so he can "clampdown on democracy" and so act as co-conspirators in the plot. If the attempt had succeeded they would have been jubilant that it worked but they are so corrupt we could not put it past them to claim that his murder would be justified. But what strikes me about all these circumstances is the connection between the domestic situation in the USA and its external aggression. The defeat of the US and its NATO and Middle Eastern allies in Syria dealt them a major strategic blow. They had hoped to be able to take over the land and air space of Syria and ISIS controlled Iraq to build up forces so they could attack Iran. Now that is only possible by air attack and they know as we all know that despite the destruction they can wreak air bombardment alone does not win wars. So the US reneged on the Iran nuclear deal in order to have its pretext to impose crippling economic warfare on Iran, which has had the effect of devaluing its currency and making life difficult. Already some unrest has been provoked because of this and the actions of western agents in Iran. The Americans hope to cause enough unrest to bring down the Iranian government and impose their own puppets or direct western colonial rule but they do not understand either the will to resist nor the Persian culture and people. Nor did they expect to be frustrated by Iran's friends who refuse to obey US diktats to reduce Iranian oil sales to zero. India, China, Russia, Turkey and some EU countries that need it will continue to by Iranian oil.

Tax Havens Are a Threat to Oceans and Rainforests Truthdig RSS

Tax havens have provided more than two-thirds of the foreign capital known to be linked to Amazon deforestation and pirate fishing, a new study says.

The researchers say 70% of known vessels involved in illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing are or have been flagged under a tax haven jurisdiction. On average, they report, 68% of all investigated foreign capital (US$18.4bn of a total $26.9bn) which went to sectors associated with Amazon  deforestation between 2000 and 2011 was transferred through tax havens.

The report is the work of a team of researchers from the Stockholm Resilience Centre (SRC) and the Global Economic Dynamics and the Biosphereprogramme (GEDB), who say it is the first study to show how tax havens are linked to economic sectors with the potential to cause serious global environmental damage.

They say the release of the Paradise Papers and Panama Papers exposed how multinationals, politicians and the rich use offshore tax havens to conceal their wealth and money flows, and to reduce their exposure to tax. Accepting that the term tax haven is contested, their report uses a definition proposed in a report prepared for the US Congress.

The studys lead author, Victor Galaz, deputy director of the SRC, says: Our analysis shows that the use of tax havens is not only a socio-political and economic challenge, but also an environmental one. While the use of tax haven jurisdictions is not illegal in itself, financial secrecy hampers the ability to analyse how financial flows affect economic activities on the ground, and their environmental impacts.

The study, published in the journal Nature Ecology and Evolution, is part of an on-going research project, Earth System Finance: New perspectives on financial markets and sustainability, led by GEDB and the Stockholm Resilience Centre in collaboration with Future Earth.

Systematic approach

The researchers say most previous analyses of the environmental impacts of tax havens are the work of investigative journalists focusing on a few locations. The new study, in contrast, takes a more systematic approach to analyse how the havens influence the sustainability of the ocean and the Amazon...

Latest US Sanctions Point to a Declining World Superpower Operation Disclosure



Source: Geopolitics

On Monday 6th of August the United States imposed a fresh set of sanctions on Iran. These are intended as a prelude to even stronger sanctions to take effect in November. The clearly stated intention is to break the Iranian governments will to resist American demands, and to cause such domestic pain that the Iranian people Will rise in revolt against their government and bring about the long sought after (by the Americans) regime change.

These policies I'm not new. The first 'regime change' operation in Iran that occurred in 1953 when a combined CIA-MI6 operation toppled the democratically elected government of Mohammad Mossadegh and replaced it with the brutal rule of the Shah.

The Shah in turn was overthrown in the Islamic revolution of 1979 and ever since it has been a central goal of the United States government, driven in no small part by the violent and racist regime in Tel Aviv, to reverse that Revolution and reinstall a government in Tehran that (a) is pliable to United States wishes; and (b) represents no challenge to Israel's quest for regional dominance.

In a recent and widely quoted article, the American journalist Eric Margolis(28 July 2018) wrote about "The Coming War Against Iran." The article has been widely, and in my view correctly, criticized, as for example in a comprehensive analysis by the Saker (3 August 2018).

Margolis is correct in suggesting that the United States' weight of numbers in missiles and bombers could wreak significant damage on Iran's infrastructure and cause huge civilian casualties. That however, is not the point. There is absolutely no justification under the international law for such an attack. While on their past record it would be nave to dismiss the possibility of the Americans, or one of the regional stooges, from creating a false flag event to provide an o...

Israel Continues to Have its Way, So is Saudi Arabia Operation Disclosure

Deep State-sanctioned Israel bullying against inferior Gaza and Saudi's airstrike against Yemeni civilian targets continue. The global community's attention is somewhere else. While America has grown numb to the fact that its own government is complicit in all of these genocidal crimes that sometimes victimize its own people, too.

Nevertheless, it's still wise to keep reminding those in authority that the world has not forgotten anything at all.

"A USS Liberty survivor who was arrested by Israel this month trying to break the Gaza blockade joins Episode 2 of Consortium News Radio.



Joe Meadors was a signalman on the USS Liberty surveillance ship on June 8, 1967 when Israel attacked, killing 34 U.S. sailors and injuring 173 more. This month Meadors was arrested by Israeli soldiers onboard a boat taking part in a flotilla to break the Gaza blockade.

Meadors tells Consortium News Radio in this episode how he first became sympathetic to the Palestinians while growing up in Saudi Arabia; how he was told by his superiors not to discuss what happened on the Liberty; why he broke his silence 12 years later; who he thought was attacking the Liberty; why the U.S. covered it up; what he believes was Israel's motive in trying to sink his ship; what it was like in Israeli custody this month and much more."

We are moving through a veritable hit storm. Everything is surfacing, the masks are coming off and soon everything will be made known as to peoples true intentions and motives. Many have fallen and in their own self-righteuos twisted way they actually be lie ve they are serving god when it is their own unhealed agenda influenced by unseen negative influences running the show. Beware of the world of opposites in the deepstate/archon/draconian grid.

There is a biblical saying you can measure the god they are worshipping by the works they produce and the company they keep.

The lies and gossip circle the world twice before the truth has time to tie its shoes.

We all have to step back and look at the source of our inspiration, what is the real source fueling our words and deeds. With the planets lined up in retrograde, mars and mercury direct everything is pointing to a hot fiery August. There are spiritual fires or a major infusion of higher consciousness and energy which are bringing everything to the surface. This is going to produce a brutally honest reality check. There will those willingly and in error working with the Archons, Serpent Beings, Reptillians, Negative Greys, Low Level Astral Beings etc. They are being hooked by their own denial and self-serving agendas. Once hooked you cannot reason with them. Why? Because Arcons cannot tell the truth and they have no shame. Which brings us to the Lame Stream Media. All you have to do is reverse everything they say and realize what they are accusing others of they themselves are doing. They attack the conspiracy people, a name used by the agencies and their talking heads to discredit and push their lies and deceptions. These falsehoods they promote have and will continue to be proven incorrect. This not only applies to the lame stream media it also applies to all walks of life. I have seen it in the business, religious, spiritual and UFO community. This is replete through the movie and music industry.

There is a saying in the East, there are no perfect men, only perfect intentions.

Many things begin with high ideals and perfect intentions yet often get hijacked by darker forces. This is the world of opposites. You are going to see a great revealing in all organizations and institutions. During this process you will see the opposite effect.

Mexicos New President Reaffirms Commitment to Nationalize Oil Resources MintPress News

Mexicos president-elect, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO) reaffirmed that his administration will spend more than US$2.63 billion to bring the states oil refinery company, Petroleos Mexicanos (Pemex), up to date.

AMLO said he plans to update the six Pemex refineries in order to reduce imports and increase the countrys crude production quality.

The president-elect, who will be sworn in on December 1, will include the construction of a new plant at the cost of US$ 8.4 billion dollars and should be complete in three years.

During his campaign, Lopez Obrador said he wanted to reactivate the states role in petrol production.

Were going to immediately reactivate oil exploration and drilling to have crude oil, AMLO said in a July 7 interview, days after having won his presidential bid. Back in July, he warned, if this (low production) trend continues were going to have a crisis due to a lack of raw material.

As previously pledged the incoming government will invest another US$4 billion to drill for hydrocarbons in the Gulf of Mexico and the states of Chiapas, Tabasco, and Veracruz.

According to AMLO all Pemex contracts from the past three years will also be reviewed once he has entered into office.

Mexicos six existing state refineries have been operating at 40 percent capacity (1.6 million barrels per day) for the past 14 years, contributing to the countrys current need to import fuel.

In 2013 and 2014, contrary to popular opinion, outgoing president Enrique Peo Nieta pushed through legislation to open up the state oil industry to private companies. Over the past three years, several Pemex blocks have been auctioned off to the likes of Shell and ExxonMobil

In renewable energies, last March Mexico inaugurated the largest solar plant in the Americas in the northern state of Coahuila. It has been up and running since June.

Angor is a lost world. It was an ancient megalopolis on par with sprawling modern cities.

White Supremacists See a Friend in Trump The Fifth Column

(HRW) The sight of white supremacists calling for white civil rights in front of the White House on Sunday is one Ill never forget. And while the group of white nationalists was tiny less than 30 the demonstration was a stark reminder of the perilous state of race relations under the Trump administration.

The truth is that this supposed concern for white civil rights is usually just a flimsy cover for racism, bigotry, and xenophobia.

The Unite the Right 2 rally comes at a time when polls suggest most Americans say race relations have worsened under President Trump. Since the first Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, where Heather Heyer was killed when struck by a car allegedly driven by a white supremist, Trump has advanced policies that have set back rights for minorities, refugees, women, and others.

Trump blamed both sides for violence between white supremacists and anti-racist counter protesters in Charlottesville. A year later, Trump refused to explicitly identify, condemn, and reject white supremacy, instead tweeting blandly that We must come together as a nation. I condemn all types of racism and acts of violence. Some of the white supremacists outside the White House wore red, Trump campaign Make America Great Again hats.

Steve Beckow -- Make our No! be Heard (Part 2/2) Operation Disclosure



Vent #2. Pedophilia

I've been getting reports of pedophilia from a number of sources, on a regular basis.

I watch as many videos as I can without totally throwing things over and going back for a law degree so I can join the fight against pedophilia.

I was shopping in Safeway today when I heard myself say to myself: "I can't go another minute without publicly speaking out against pedophilia."

I'm using the word "pedophilia" to cover child trafficking, exploitation, rape, torture, and murder.

Look at how long it's taken us to get over our own childhood trauma.

I've seen a woman go through her recovery process from ritual sexual abuse in repeated Enlightenment Intensives and I got her pain. A woman in a video Kathleen showed me took, I believe, 18 years to recover from her trauma after abuse as a sex slave.

Compared to theirs, mine - and perhaps that of most of us - is absolutely nothing. How will they get over it?

Children being tortured, raped, and murdered. (1) Children being "ordered" like pizza with a code for infant, girl, boy, white, black, etc. Taken into the White House and shown around. The grossest acts being visited upon young kids, no different from everyone's children - and could be anyone's. (2)

All these years when children have gone missing, what did we think? Well, now we know.

Report: Radioactive Sheep Prove Israel Illegally Tested Nuclear Weapons MintPress News

A science journal has claimed that radioactive sheep found in Australia could prove that Israel tested nuclear weapons, an action which would be in contravention of international law.

The study, which was published by Princeton Universitys Science and Global Security journal, claims that Israel conducted an illegal nuclear test on 22 September 1979 near Prince Edward Islands, located in the Indian Ocean off the southern tip of Africa. At the time, a double flash of light was recorded by an American satellite named Vela 6911, a sign thought to indicate that a nuclear test had taken place. Theories have speculated since that the flash could have been caused by natural phenomena, for example by a meteor shower, but the journals new study claims to have proof that this was not the case.

The new research, led by Christopher Wright of the Australian Defence Force Academy and Lars Erik de Geer, a former member of the Swedish Defence Research Agency, claims that a few weeks after the mysterious flash, traces of radioactive Iodine (I-131) had been discovered in several dead sheep in Australia. Samples from the sheeps thyroid glands were then sent for tests in the United States, but the tests results were never made public, Ynet reports.

It is thought that due to stormy weather at the time the double flash was recorded, the fallout from the alleged nuclear test was scattered throughout parts of Australia. The study believes the sheep in question may have eaten some grass in the affected area, causing them to become radioactive. If the journals theory is correct, this marks the most concrete evidence to date that Israel conducted illegal nuclear testing during the height of the Cold War. That this was done in cooperation with South Africa, at that time ruled by an Apartheid regime, will likely raise further eyebrows.

Israel has long sought to conceal its alleged nuclear capabilities, neither confirming nor denying its possession of nuclear weapons. However, it is widely believed that Israel possesses nuclear WMDs (weapons of mass destruction) and is one of four nuclear-armed countries not recognised by the international Non-Proliferation Treaty. The other three are India, Pakistan and North Korea.

Israels forays into the nuclear arena came under the spotlight in July when an expos by the Wall Street Journal(WSJ) revealed that in 1999 North Korea deman...

Visualizing What You Have To Make Each Year To Reach The Top 1% In Each State The Daily Sheeple

In 2015, the top 1% of Americans made 26.3 times as much income as the bottom 99 percent  an increase from 2013, when they earned 25.3 times as much, according to a recent study released by the Economic Policy Institute, a left-leaning Washington, D.C. think tank.

The study found that from 2009 to 2015, the incomes of the top 1 percent grew faster than the incomes of the bottom 99% in 43 states and the District of Columbia.

While weve covered this study before, we thought itd be helpful to visualize what it takes to enter the top 1% income bracket in each state. The below infographic map presents the minimum annual income required to be in the top one percent.

A few key quick takeaways

  • DC ($598K)
  • New Jersey ($589K)
  • Massachusetts ($583K)
  • New York ($550K)

TSA Defends Orwellian Secretive Domestic Surveillance Program MintPress News

The TSA has broken its silence to defend its alarming domestic surveillance program called Quiet Skies which allows the agency to use teams of armed Air Marshals to follow, track and surveil virtually anyone. TSA administrator David Pekoske told CBS news in a recent interview that the program makes an awful lot of sense, to be able to look at some risks that we think exist on certain flights and put air marshals on those flights.

We were one of the first to report on the Quiet Skies program at the end of July after the Boston Globe uncovered it in a lengthy and revealing expose. The secret program was set up to monitor US citizens with no prior record and who dont result in red flags being raised at the airport. The people surveilled by this program are, according to a TSA memo cited by the Globes original article, not under investigation by any agency and are not in the Terrorist Screening Data Base, setting of numerous privacy red flags.

Now, two weeks after the Globes report, the TSA is finally speaking out about the program to CBS News:

Our job overall as an agency, and the air marshals in particular, in flight, are working to make sure that we mitigate any risks that could occur in aircraft at 10,000, 20,000, 30,000 feet, Pekoske told CBS News in his first TV interview since the Quiet Skies program was disclosed to the public. If an agency responsible for security has some information that might indicate that there may be emphasis on may be  more risk with a particular passenger, providing some mitigation or some risk management on the flight is a very important and very reassuring thing to me.

In a slippery slope that could lead the TSA to just about any air traveler, Pekoske said that different passengers present different levels of risk and that the TSA wanted to be able to have a presence with passengers who fall below the threshold that would prevent them from flying:

Throughout the entire system different passengers present different levels of risk, Pekoske said. Passengers have a right to fly and if we ever thought the risk reached the point where the passenger shouldnt fly, then we have the authority to deny flight for that particular passenger.

But as you can appreciate, there are some passengers that fall below that threshold but still create a level of concern that we need we felt we needed to...

What Really Happens to Nicaragua, Venezuela and Ecuador Dissident Voice

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

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

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

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

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

The Internet Just Crowdfunded the Release of 4,358 CIA Mind Control Documents The Daily Sheeple

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

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

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

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

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

Jon Rappoport -- Socialism: What is it Good for? Operation Disclosure

Socialism: what is it good for?

By Jon Rappoport

CNBC: "Democrats view socialism more positively than capitalism, according to a new Gallup poll..."

To give you an idea of the deception inherent in socialism, here is a quote from none other than Andrew Carnegie, once one of the richest men in America:

"I believe Socialism is the grandest theory ever presented, and I am sure it will someday rule the world. Then we will have attained the Millennium...Then men will be content to work for the general welfare and share their riches with their neighbors." (The New York Times, 1 January 1885, "A Millionaire Socialist")

Carnegie, of course, like several of his ultra-rich compatriots, devised a method to give away his riches while keeping them: the non-profit foundation.

The last thing on Carnegie's bloated mind was becoming "equal" with the great unwashed.

He was a liar of the first order. He recognized that, when you win the game of free enterprise, your most corrupt bet is to turn around and find every possible way to block others from winning. Then, you stand at the top of the heap, unchallenged.

That is exactly what he had in mind. That's what socialism actually meant to him.

Let's see socialism for what it is. Not in the abstract, but in reality.

Socialism is:

The taking of money (taxes) from some people who work for it and giving it to others who don't work for it. On a grand scale.

The vast expansion of freebies doled out by central government. In order to create and sustain dependence.

The government protection of favored persons and corporations, permitting them and aiding them to expand their fortunes without limit, regardless of what crimes they commit in the process. (Monsanto would be a fine example.)

Lawmakers Demand Answers About US Role in Saudi Slaughter of Yemeni Civilians MintPress News

In the wake of the U.S.-backed Saudi-led coalitions horrific bombing of a school bus last week that killed 40 Yemeni children and amid reports on Tuesday of dozens more civilian deaths after a new wave of Saudi bombings, Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) has sent a detailed letter (pdf) to the Department of Defense Inspector General demanding an investigation into whether Trump administration officials violated U.S. or international law by assisting the Saudis in their assault on Yemen.

The Saudi-led coalition, which receives essential military support and intelligence from the U.S., has repeatedly hit civilian targetsincluding schools, hospitals, funerals, and weddingsnowhere near military targets, Lieu writes, pointing to an analysis by the Yemen Data Project showing that a third of Saudi bombings in Yemen have hit civilian targets. I previously served on active duty as a JAG [Judge Advocate General] and a number of the coalitions airstrikes look like war crimes.

If the coalitions targeting of farms, food storage sites, and water sites was deliberate, these airstrikes would constitute a violation of Article 14 of Additional Protocol II and customary international law in non-international armed conflict, Lieu adds. I am deeply concerned that continued U.S. refueling, operational support functions, and weapons transfers could qualify as aiding and abetting these potential war crimes.

The California congressman goes on to note that the U.S.-backed Saudi attacks on civilian targets cannot be attributed to mere faulty intelligence or incompetence.

The coalition, which has air superiority, has in a number of cases very precisely struck civilian targets, Lieu notes. For example, coalition jets precisely struck a funeral attended by a large number of people and then came around and struck the same civilian target again. It is indisputable that the DoD-supported coalition has killed large numbers of children, women, and men who are civilians.

'Violence is wrong but motivation matters': CNN continues to defend Antifa violence Signs of the Times

After Sunday's poorly attended 'Unite the Right 2' white nationalist rally, CNN host Chris Cuomo argued that violence perpetrated by Antifa, while wrong in the eyes of the law, was morally superior to the violence of "hate." In his closing monologue on Monday night, Cuomo delivered a criticism of all violence from those on both sides of the political spectrum but argued that the violence perpetrated by anti-fascist activists was at least morally superior to the "violence of hate" by the far-right. "People who show up to fight against bigots are not to be judged the same as the bigots, even if they do resort to the same kinds of petty violence," Cuomo argued.

Vermont Nominates 1st U.S. Transgender Candidate for Governor Truthdig RSS

MONTPELIER, Vt. A former Vermont utility executive on Tuesday became the first transgender candidate from a major political party to be nominated for governor, and shell face the Republican incumbent, who survived a bitter backlash from his base over gun restrictions he supported.

GOP Gov. Phil Scott defeated a challenge from Springfield businessman Keith Stern in his quest to win a second term. He will face Christine Hallquist, who won the Democratic primary to run for the states highest office in November, when she would become the nations first transgender governor if elected.

Scott said he expected the race to be closer than it was.

I know there are some who are still upset with me who may not welcome tonights result but theres so much more that unites us than sets us apart, Scott said. And no one agrees with their friends all the time, but as our success shows we can make a lot of good progress when we have clear priorities and we pull in the same direction.

Hallquist said her campaign would focus on improving the states economy, yet she acknowledged the symbolism of being an openly transgender candidate.

The whole world is looking at this as a historic moment for a transgender candidate, but thats not what Vermont looked at, Hallquist said. Vermonters looked at, Whats Christine and her team going to do for Vermont?'

Look to Vermont, she said. We continue to demonstrate leadership in civil rights and how to honor and work with each other. We can be a beacon for the rest of the world.

Scott, first elected in 2016, faced a rebellion from his base due to his support for a series of gun restrictions that, while mild by national standards, angered many members of Vermonts avid hunting community. The restrictions, which Scott signed into law in April, came after the arrest of a teenager on charges he was plotting a school shooting.

They included raising the age to buy firearms from 18 to 21, restricting the size of gun magazines and requiring background checks for most private gun sales.

Scott will seek re-election by continuing his pledge to make the state more affordable, not raise taxes or fees, foster a better environment for businesses and attract newcomers to the state.

Hallquist defeated environmental activist James Ehlers; dance festival organizer Brenda Siegel; and 14-year-old student Ethan Sonneborn, who was on the ballot because a quirk in state law doesnt require candidates to be of voting age.

Democratic state Sen. John Rodgers, from Vermonts remote and conservative Northeast Kingdom, failed in his bid for a grassroots write-in campaign, largely motivated by his displeasure with firearms restrictions.

Is Boris Johnson Really a Racist? A Look at His Track Record MintPress News

Former Foreign Secretary and oft-described Brexit architect Boris Johnson described Muslim women who wear the burka and niqab as looking like letterboxes and bankrobbers.

But he is not racist, obviously.

A cursory perusal of his track record of statements relating to the ethnicity, country of origin and/or religion of various people throws light on this.

In these past statements, the pattern is clear: Johnson refers repeatedly to what he sees as the fixed cultural and/or biological characteristics of large groups of people, particularly black people (Africans) and Muslims. But this does not prove that he possesses the internal disposition of a racist.

In 2002, Johnson wrote in The Telegraph:

What a relief it must be for Blair to get out of England. It is said that the Queen has come to love the Commonwealth, partly because it supplies her with regular cheering crowds of flag-waving piccaninnies No doubt the AK47s will fall silent, and the pangas will stop their hacking of human flesh, and the tribal warriors will all break out in watermelon smiles to see the big white chief touch down in his big white British taxpayer-funded bird.

Piccaninny is a derogatory word for black children. In fact it was the dominant racial caricature of black children during much of the history of the United States, according to Ferris State Universitys Jim Crow Museum of Racist Memorabilia.

This doesnt mean that Johnsons use of the word piccaninny as a joke is a sign of racism. It merely proves that he was joking about black people.

Piccaninny is also a word that Boris Johnson appears to have used other times in private, as described by British journalisms virtual personification of anti-racism, Rod Liddle, in an important piece characterising Johnson as the least racist person I have ever met. This was Mr Liddles profound verdict having spent time with Johnson on a visit to Uganda.

Sacha Baron Cohen's Col. Erran Morad is beginning to make Israel uncomfortable Signs of the Times

Col. Erran Morad, Sacha Baron Cohen's Israeli character from his new Showtime series "Who Is America?", is a die-hard counterterrorism expert hell-bent on sharing his tactics with conservative America. But at the same time that Baron Cohen's latest alter-ego is revealing the wingnuttery of American politicians, he is also stirring a debate in Israel, as people there are realizing that the joke might also be on them. While there is consensus among Israelis on the accuracy of the archetype-the heavy accent, the flagrant machismo, the inherent misogyny-opinions across social media and the press are divided as to whether Baron Cohen, until now a beloved "son of Israel," is turning his back on his mother's country of origin. While some think that Baron Cohen's parody is a chance to reflect on Israel's growing militarism and international isolation, others like Shmuel Rosner (Does Sacha Baron Cohen Understand Israel? August 9th) complain that the character misrepresents today's Israeli society and brings harm to the country's already struggling image in the world. Perhaps Rosner should seize this opportunity to look at the Morad within himself.

Puzzling The Awesome Power of Waves Near Ganymede: Only Moon in the Solar System with a Magnetic Field The Event Chronicle

By The Daily Galaxy

Its a really surprising and puzzling observation showing that a moon with a magnetic field can create such a tremendous intensification in the power of waves, says the lead author of the study, Professor Yuri Shprits of GFZ/ University of Potsdam, who is also affiliated with UCLA.

Listening to electromagnetic waves around the Earth, converted to sound, is almost like listening to singing and chirping birds at dawn with a crackling campfire nearby. Such waves are therefore called chorus waves. They cause the Northern Lights, but also high-energy killer electrons that can damage spacecraft. In a recent study to be published in Nature Communications, the authors describe extraordinary chorus waves around other planets in our solar system.

The scientists led by Yuri Shprits of GFZ and the University of Potsdam report that the power of chorus waves is 1 million times more intense near Jupiters largest moon, Ganymede, and 100 times more intense near the moon Europa than the average around these planets. These are the new results from a systematic study on Jupiters wave environment taken from the Galileo spacecraft.

Chorus waves are a special type of radio wave occurring at very low frequencies. Unlike the Earth, Ganymede and Europa orbit inside the giant magnetic field of Jupiter, and the authors believe this is one of the key factors powering the waves. Jupiters magnetic field is the largest in the solar system, and some 20,000 times stronger than the Earths.

Chorus waves have been detected in space around the Earth, but they are nowhere near as strong as the waves at Jupiter, says Professor Richard Horne of British Antarctic Survey, a co-author on the study. Even if small portion of these waves escapes the immediate vicinity of Ganymede, they will be capable of accelerating particles to very high energies and ultimately producing very fast electrons inside Jupiters magnetic field.

Jupiters moon Ganymede was first found to have a magnetic field by Professor Margaret Kivelson and her team at the University of California, Los Angeles, and strong plasma waves were first observed near Ganymede by Professor Don Gurnett and his team at the University of Iowa. However, until now, it remained unclear if this was accidental or whether such increases are systematic and significant.

Around Earth, chorus waves play a major role in producing high-energy killer electrons that can damage spacecraft. The new observations raise the question as to whether they can do the same at Jupiter.

Observations of Jupiters waves provides a unique opportunity to understand the fundamental processes that are relevant to laboratory plasmas and the quest for new energy sources, and processes of acceleration and loss around the planets in the solar system. Similar processes may...

Hundreds of thousands of mullet were reported dead in rivers across New Taipei City Monday, with a preliminary investigation indicating the cause of death was consecutive days of high temperatures rather than water pollution, the city's Water Resources Department said Tuesday. The dead fish were found in the Tamsui River, Xindian River, Dahan River and Keelung River, officials said, adding that about 100,000 dead fish have so far been removed from the rivers. The officials said they expected to finish removing the dead fish within three days.

Trump Wouldnt Have Let Her in the Country, but Shell Likely Join Congress Truthdig RSS

Ilhan Omar, a refugee and a Somali-heritage Muslim woman who veils, has won the Democratic primary for Minnesotas Fifth District congressional seat, hoping to succeed Keith Ellison. The district, which includes Minneapolis, typically votes heavily Democratic, so she has a good shot at winning the seat.

Somalia is one of five Muslim-majority countries from which immigration is currently banned, though immigration is restricted from Venezuela (a few officials) and North Korea, as well. The actual targets of the ban are Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen.

Under Trump administration policy, in other words, Ilhan Omar would not have been allowed to enter the country as an immigrant. Under Trump, she also would have been highly unlikely to be granted refugee status and asylum in the US. In 2016, the US admitted some 85,000 refugees, about evenly split between Christians and Muslims. Based on the first five months of this year, it is likely that the US will admit only 45,000 refugees in 2018, and that only 17% of them will be Muslim. The open racism and bigotry of this administration is already being enshrined in our immigration statistics. Legal immigration is on track to be cut 12% from Obamas last year in office, and the number of Muslim immigrants has fallen by 33% nearly three times as much as over-all immigration. European immigrants are slightly up, though still dwarfed by Asia and Latin America. It is remarkable that for all his rhetoric, Trump hasnt managed substantially to cut legal immigration, and his own Republican Congress has rebuffed the bills he submitted to abolish certain kinds of immigrant visas.

But African immigration is down, and Muslim immigration is down, and Ilhan Omar is precisely the demographic that Trump (and his horrid mini-me Stephen Miller) have targeted.

Ilhan Omar did not win because she compromised but because she boldly took stances approved by the public, even if the class of cranky rich old white people thinks them utopian or too costly (something they never say about the Pentagon budget or our forever wars).

She is for medicare for all. She endorses abolishing ICE, which was only created in 2004.

Minneapolis is about 64% white, 5 percent Asian, and only 18% African-American, so Ms. Omars victory was in no way based on identity politics. She was largely elected by Protestants, Catholics and agnostics of European heritage.

Some voters interviewed by the Minneapolis Star Tribune said...

Surprising Discoveries About Real-Life Star Wars Midchlorians Previously Not Found in Nature The Event Chronicle

By The Daily Galaxy

Just as cars need fossil fuels to power their engines, the living cells that make up our bodies use food as a fuel source. To harness the energy in food every cell in our bodies contains microscopic biological machines, known as mitochondria, which convert food molecules into energy.

Researchers at The University of Western Australia and Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research have made a fundamental discovery about of the atomic structure and function of the biological factories in cells that make energy, providing a new means to target the machines within factories for drug treatments.

The research, published today in Nature, was led by Professor Nenad Ban from ETH Zurich in Switzerland, in collaboration with researchers from UWAs School of Molecular Sciences and Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research: Associate Professor Aleksandra Filipovska, Head of Mitochondrial Medicine and Biology, Associate Professor Oliver Rackham, Head of Synthetic Biology and Drug Discovery and their Ph.D. student Richard Lee.

Professor Filipovska said mitochondria were microscopic, energy-producing factories found in all eukaryotic cells, or cells containing a nucleus enclosed within membranes, representing all forms of life that are visible without a microscope.

Mitochondria contain a set of genes that are used to make key protein building blocks that enable mitochondria to produce energy, she said. These proteins are essential for energy production however little is known about how they are made. The recent discovery of the atomic structure of the machine that makes these proteins (the mitochondrial ribosome) has revealed how they are made.

Surprisingly, this machine blocks itself from making the proteins until it is precisely located where these proteins are required within mitochondria. This is highly unusual and previously not found in nature.

Professor Filipovska said as well as providing a new means to target this molecular machine for drug treatments, the discovery also demonstrated the power of cutting-edge technology to reveal how living systems had evolved to function under different energy requirements.

Defects in mitochondrial function underlie many common diseases such as neurodegenerative, metabolic and heart diseases, cancer, diabetes and ageing, she said. Therefore molecular discoveries provide the much-needed knowledge that enables us to make the leap to disease treatments and drug discoveries.

The next step was to delve deeper into the role of the mitochondrial...

US-Egyptian-Israeli Strategy: Bomb Palestinians into Accepting Trump Peace Plan MintPress News

GAZA CITY The Gaza Strip seemed to maintain a tenuous calm Tuesday after a de facto ceasefire between Palestinian factions and Tel Aviv ended a week of heightened violence that saw the Israeli military pound civilian targets across the coastal enclave.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza has reported that the Israeli assault has raised the death toll to 168 Palestinians killed and over 18,000 injured over the past four months in the besieged coastal region and home to 2 million people that is regularly referred to as the worlds largest open-air prison.

Since protests along the Israeli fence enclosing the Gaza Strip began on March 30, the Israelis have launched numerous bombings of Palestinian civilian targets, exacerbating the grave and ongoing humanitarian crisis in the region. Last week, Israeli forces demolished neighborhoods and civilian targets like the Al-Meshal Cultural Center.

World media outlets have largely ignored the Israeli provocations which are backed by the U.S. and its Saudi-led Arab junior partners instead laying unilateral blame on the Hamas government in Gaza.

An Updated and Improved Marxism Dissident Voice

It is the rare intellectual who can withstand the pressures of groupthink. This is a fundamental truth, or a truism, borne out not only by daily experiences in an academic or other intellectual context (e.g., the newsroom or editorial board of any establishment media outlet) but also by critical scholarship from the likes of Ed Herman and Noam Chomsky. Left-wing intellectuals tend to be vigilantly aware of irrational groupthink among mainstream, establishment types, or even among other leftist sects with which they dont identify; but, like all intellectual cliquesindeed, like nearly all individual intellectualstheyre reluctant to turn their critical gaze on themselves. They imbibe certain ideas and ideologies in their formative years and perhaps refine them as they mature, but on the whole their commitment to the ideology is apt to become rigid and uncritical.

This complacency has always most disturbed me with regard to Marxists, whose system of thought, if correctly formulated, is precisely the most critical, the most self-critical, the most democratic and revolutionary ideology ever devised. I expect intellectual laziness from most postmodernists, from liberals and centrists, from all witting or unwitting servants of power. Im disappointed, though, when I see it in Marxists and semi-Marxists. Theres a pronounced dogmatism in most Marxist circles. Personally, Ive tried to stimulate some critical rethinking of Marxism in various publications, including my book Worker Cooperatives and Revolution: History and Possibilities in the United States and this distillation of some of its arguments (though disregard the editors oversimplified summary at the top of the page), but I havent had much success. These writings appear to have been ignored.

Which is unfortunate, because Im convinced its necessary in the twenty-first century to revise the Marxian conception of revolution. Conditions have changed from what they were a hundred or a hundred and fifty years ago; Marx would likely be appalled by the lack of creative rethinking that has met these altered conditions. Its an unfortunate situation when millions of activists across the world are struggling to build new modes of production, new modes of politics, and Marxist scholars and thinkers still confine themselves, more or less, to quoti...

Vivian Lee: In Solidarity with Alex JonesTop Ten Reasons Sandy Hook Was an Elaborate Hoax

Mr. President,

I am writing in solidarity with Alex Jonesin support of his right to speak freely on YouTube, Facebook, and other internet platforms without being censored, as protected by the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. While Jones has not been consistent in his comments about the Sandy Hook Elementary School event, he has expressed the idea that the shooting was not real, and in this he was correct. Adam Lanza did not kill 28 people in Newtown, CT, on December 14, 2012. This was a drill, presented by officials and the media as an actual shooting. Following the event, a group of investigators compiled a list of ten reasons that, taken together, show that Sandy Hook was staged. These are published in detail in the banned book, Nobody Died at Sandy Hook: It Was a FEMA Drill To Promote Gun Control (Moon Rock Books, 2015). Although more evidence has since emerged, the original top ten reasons still ring true:

(1) Proof of death was suppressed.

(2) Emergency protocols were not followed.

(3) Drill protocols were followed instead.

(4) There was foreknowledge of the event.

(5) There were contradictory reports about the weapons.

(6) Adam Lanza cannot have done the shooting.

(7) Key participants displayed inappropriate behavior.

(8) Photos at the scene and of victims look staged or fake.

(9) The crime scene was completely destroyed.

(10) Deceased children sang at the Super Bowl.

To summarize, first of all, there is no proof of anyones deathnot for the children or adults at the school, Nancy Lanza, or Adam Lanzano photos or footage confirming the official story (1). In June 2013, the state of Connecticut outlawed disclosure of photos or video images of homicide victims, along with other records.

There is no evidence of any frantic attempt to save lives at the scene (2), which looked largely calm and bloodless. START triage protocol for a Mass Casualty Incident (MCI) was not followed. Emergency vehicles were jammed together at the Firehouse, impeding access to the school and possible rescue. Inste...

Pink Himalayan Salt Benefits that Make It Superior to Table Salt The Event Chronicle

By Dr. Axe

Pink Himalayan salt is often said to be the most beneficial as well as the cleanest salt available on this planet today. It has all kinds of nutritional and therapeutic properties, not to mention culinary uses. You can use it as a healthier option to processed salt. You can also use it to create homemade body scrubs and bath soaks, and you may have seen or own a Himalayan salt lamp made from pink Himalayan salt. Historically, the people of the Himalayas have used this versatile salt to preserve meat and fish.

As scientific research has pointed out, US Dietary Guidelines recommend a daily sodium intake 2300 mg, but evidence linking sodium intake to mortality outcomes is scant and inconsistent. (1) The right salt in the right amount is actually very good for your health. Pink Himalayan sea salt contains over 84 minerals and trace elements, including calcium, magnesium, potassium, copper and iron, so it does more than just make your food taste better. Lets look at why you may want to make the switch to pink Himalayan salt for the its impressive health benefits. Instead of skipping salt all together, why not give it an upgrade?

What Is Pink Himalayan Salt? 

Pink Himalayan salt is a truly unique salt. Its also referred to as pink salt, Himalayan sea salt, rock salt and Himalayan crystal salt. This salt is classified as rock salt or halite, which comes from the Punjab region of Pakistan about 190 miles from the Himalayas. This region has one of the richest salt fields in the entire world, and they are very, very old. Im talking Precambrian Age or over 4 billion years ago when planet Earth first formed! (2) With a history dating back to Earths creation, Himalayan salt is believed to be composed of dried remnants of the original, primal sea.

Himalayan crystal salt comes from salt mines 5,000 feet deep below the Himalayan Mountain Range. The salt from these mines has experienced tremendous pressure over millions of years and is said to be over 99 percent pure. (3) Pink Himalayan salts color as well as its color variations are indicative of its mineral content. Himalayan crystal salt can be pink, white or red in color. As a salt, pink Himalayan salt is chemically sodium chloride (NaCl), which is defined as a mineral substance of great importance to human and animal health. (...

Berto Jongman: 9/11 Aftermath 10,000 Cancer Patients Public Intelligence Blog

Berto Jongman

The day after 9/11 the President told everyone it was safe to return to New York City. He was wrong.

REVEALED: Nearly 10,000 people have suffered cancers linked to toxic dust from asbestos, jet fuel, cement and glass shards caused by 9/11

Phi Beta Iota: Instead of taking down the Twin Towers safely once they were condemned around 1990, at a cost of $2B+, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey elected to be complicit in a false flag terrorism event organized by the Zionists and approved as well as overseen by Dick Cheney, toward commercial insurance fraud yielding $7-12B for the criminal conspiracy that carried out 9/11, never mind the cost to the local public, never mind the $7 trillion dollar cost of war in the Middle East, of, by, and for the Zionst State of Israel that continues to treat the USA as its shiksa (gentile whore). President Trump has done well at defeating the Deep State on the financial front his looming take-over of the Federal Reserve is long overdue. What he has NOT done is shown the public the truth about 9/11 such that the public will join the President in smashing the fake news mainstream and Zionist-controlled social media, while reforming the elections process so that 100% of our voters are engaged, instead of the current 50%,

10,000 People Diagnosed With Cancer Caused by 9/11 Humans Are Free

As many as 9,795 people were diagnosed with cancer linked to 9/11, the federal World Trade Center Health Program recently confirmed ahead of the 17th anniversary of the terrorist attacks.

The New York Post initially reported the numbers Saturday - and spoke with health officials, rescue workers and survivors who were at the scene of the dangerous toxic dust caused by jet fuel, asbestos, cement and glass shards.

Medical director of the World Trade Center Health Program at Mount Sinai, Dr. Michael Crane, told the Post there has been a significant increase in the number of cancer patients since the program - which tracks 9/11 related diseases - began five years ago.

The program 'provides medical monitoring and treatment for responders at the WTC and related sites in New York City, Pentagon, and Shanksville, PA, and survivors who were in the New York City disaster area,' according to its website.

Sarah Sanders: 'We cannot guarantee there's no tape of Trump using the N-word' Signs of the Times

As the remarkable public spat between Donald Trump and former adviser Omarosa Manigault Newman continued on Tuesday, the White House was unable to guarantee that no recordings exist of the president using the "N-word". At a White House briefing, press secretary Sarah Sanders was asked if she could say no such recordings would emerge. "I can't guarantee anything," she said. Sanders cited the president's tweets on the matter and said: "I can tell you that the president addressed this question directly." On Monday, Trump wrote: "I don't have that word in my vocabulary and never have." On Tuesday morning, he added to earlier tweets when he wrote: "When you give a crazed, crying lowlife a break, and give her a job at the White House, I guess it just didn't work out. Good work by General [John] Kelly for quickly firing that dog!" Manigault Newman, a former contestant on the reality TV show The Apprentice, is promoting a memoir, Unhinged. She has released two secret recordings related to her firing from the White House late last year and another related to the claims that Trump used the "N-word" during his career in reality TV.

The Root Cause of Depression and How to Heal It The Event Chronicle

By Azriel ReShel; UPLIFT

The Disease of Disconnection

Depression is one of the biggest issues in our world today. With record numbers of people suffering from the dark cloud, and soaring suicide rates, depression is a crippling disease reaching epidemic proportions.

Well-known author and journalist, Johann Hari, suffered from depression as a teen, taking anti-depressants from a tender age. Told, like so many others, his depression was the cause of a chemical imbalance in his brain, he later studied social sciences and embarked on a quest to discover the truth about the cause of his depression. He swallowed antidepressants like millions of others, and after 13 years of pills, without much change, and a broad investigation into the true causes of depression, he is calling for a different approach.

The Chemical Imbalance Myth

His amazing journey involved hundreds of interviews in over a dozen countries and led him to discover that almost everything we know about depression and anxiety is wrong.

I started to research my book, Lost Connections: Uncovering The Real Causes of Depression and the Unexpected Solutions, because I was puzzled by two mysteries. Why was I still depressed when I was doing everything I had been told to do? I had identified the low serotonin in my brain, and I was boosting my serotonin levelsyet I still felt awful. But there was a deeper mystery still. Why were so many other people across the Western world feeling like me? Around one in five US adults are taking at least one drug for a psychiatric problem. In Britain, antidepressant prescriptions have doubled in a decade, to the point where now one in 11 of us drug ourselves to deal with these feelings. What has been causing depression and its twin, anxiety, to spiral in this way? I began to ask myself: Could it really be that in our separate heads, all of us had brain chemistries that were spontaneously malfunctioning at the same time?

He says that between 65% and 80% of people on antidepressants are depressed again within a year.

The end of the US unipolar world is unstoppable Signs of the Times

The past weeks have shown how part of the American establishment is weighing the pros and cons of the Trump administration's strategies around the world. I have a strong feeling that in the coming weeks we will see the destabilizing effects of American politics, especially towards its closest allies. A disastrous flip of events appears to be on its way, in case Trump were to lose the November midterm elections (the House and Senate elections). If this were to happen, the Trump administration would probably exploit the Russia gate conspiracy claiming that Moscow had now acted in favour of Democrats. Trump could argue that Moscow was disappointed by the lack of progress in softening US sanctions against Russia; indeed, by Trump's measures against Russia (expulsions, sanctions, property seizures) and its allies (China, Iran and Syria). Trump would not hesitate to claim Russian interference in the midterms to aid the Democrats, citing intelligence reports. He would say that Russia aims to create chaos in the US by placing roadblocks in the way of attempts to "Make America Great Again" and handing the House and Senate to the Democrats. He would use the electoral defeat to blame his accusers of getting aid from Russia. In doing so, he would be accelerating the implosion of his administration in an all-out war with the establishment. The mainstream media would dismiss Trump's accusations against the Democrats of collusion with Russia as a conspiracy theory of an unravelling presidency. All this, summed up, would lead to the Democrats having majority in both houses, easily proceeding to the impeachment of Trump.

These End-Of-Life Doulas Are Guiding People Peacefully To Their Death The Event Chronicle

The Facts: We all die. Mainstream medicine doesnt offer much in the way of end-of-life care. Death Doulas help family and friends with what they can do to help their loved ones come to terms with their impending death and how to handle it themselves.

Reflect On: We live in a culture where more often than not simply talking about death is taboo. Death Doulas can help remove these barriers and open up lines of communication with the dying and their families so they can pass on with much less fear and pain.

By Alanna Ketler

When we typically hear the term doula, we either think what the heck is that?, or we may already know that a doula is a trained professional who assists in a more natural process of childbirth, usually in the home.

So essentially, a death doula is virtually the opposite: someone who assists a person who has a terminal illness, as well as helping that persons friends, family members and even animals come to terms with the fast approaching morality that we will all face one day.

In the world of mainstream medicine, doctors themselves dont offer much to people who are on their deathbed, especially on an emotional level. Family members and friends are often left in the dark as to how they are supposed to cope with the knowledge that their loved one will pass. They are rarely given methods through which they can talk candidly about their loved ones inevitable death, and therefore this topic is often not discussed, which can make it much more difficult to process for the person who is dying and for everyone who is close to them.

Thanadoula

An end-of-life doula is sometimes referred to as a thanadoula from the greek thanameaning death and doula meaning servant. Generally speaking, it is said that the role of the death doula is to walk alongside the dying person and their family. This encompasses a very wide range of services that include: providing spiritual, psychological and social support, assisting with the creation of positive and empowering end-of-life plans, ideas to optimize physical comfort, and educating families on the new and progressive options for home wakes and natural burials. Often, these doulas go above and beyond expectations as they bring light to a phase of life that can be very dark for many.

What Does A Death Doula Actually Do?

A great definition is given on DoulaGivers.com,

Legacy: We are all born and we all die; its what we do in the middle that creates our legacy. What we leave behind is far more than simply wealth and possessions. We can share our story or give wisdom, advice, love, and support even after...

Making Peace With the Chaos in Your Life The Event Chronicle

By Tamara Rant

The past year has literally thrown me on my ass, picked me back up, turned me inside-out, and hey even upside-down a few times for good measure. But you seeif I could go back, there isnt one thing I would change or do differently. That may seem a bit nuts if afforded the choice to be able to avoid stress and chaos, but when you learn to make peace instead of trouble with these types of happenings, really shifts begin to occur in not only your life but your perceptions on everything that happens in your life.

When life seems like nothing but an unpredictable ocean of chaos sometimes, it can be hard to remember that staying calm is often all it takes to stay afloat. When were calm and centered, were able to get the best view of whats going on which allows us to also take the best approach to deal with the issue and tasks at hand.

When life throws a million tasks at us all at once, its easy to feel like were going to lose it, or that we should give up on certain things and focus more on others due to lack of time.  The thing is we have time for the things we make time for; thats how it works!

I often felt on certain days that there was no way I would ever get my book proposal completed on time. I wasnt happy with some things and kept doing some last minute revisions, but ultimately what helped me was walking away from it all together for a couple of days. Oftentimes we can become so immersed in one thing, in one project or hobby that we cant see that we are blocking our own creative flow.

On days I started feeling doubt creep in and other low-vibrational energies where my ego wanted to beat up on me, I just stepped away from it for a bit. I remembered why I was doing it (because I freaking LOVE to write and have a message to share with the world!) and suddenly I could feel my heart reopen wide again. Being in your heart-space is vital to being able to not only function in but also proactively navigate through chaotic situations in your life.

I also suggest avoiding worry! I know, easier said than done, right? But think for a moment what the act of worrying actually is doing. You are putting energy into imagining horrible, negative scenarios in your mind of what COULD possibly happen. You are putting creative, intentional energy into it whether you mean to or not simply because you are giving it so much attention and have so emotion behind it. If you are familiar with manifesting, you know these two elements are keys to successfully manifesting.

Instead, shift your focus and energy to what you DO want to happen. Or if your thoughts are on another person, perhaps a loved one you cannot stop thinking about, envision what you DO want for them. Dont keep yourself up at night creating all of these horrible nightmare stories in your mind of realities that NEVER even existed until YOU created them in your mind! Realize t...

As companies become purpose-led, where does that leave charities? Fast Company

As companies become more outwardly focused on doing good, how can nonprofits react?

Sustainable, meaningful, purpose-led.  However framed, when applied to organizations, these terms indicate to wider society that a company is committed to making a difference.  Evidence proves that purpose-led organizations are no longer a buzz word; they are fast becoming the norm because they can prove that they add real value to employees, shareholders and customers.  And its nothing new.  In a five-year old-study, In 2013, meaningful brands connected to human well-being outperformed the stock market by 120% while additional research showed that purpose driven companies outperformed the S&P 500 by 10 times between 1996 and 2011. The growing workforce of millennialsand Generation Z following fast on their heelswant to work for companies that share their values around responsibility to mankind and the planet.  Companies, therefore, have to fight for the best talent by transforming to a purpose-led business or risk losing the skills they need; employees with a strong sense of purpose are at least four times more likely to be engaged in their jobs as other employees.

Elephants protecting themselves from cancer Dear Kitty. Some blog

This October 2015 video from the USA says about itself:

A study led by the Huntsman Cancer Institute at the University of Utah could explain why elephants rarely get cancer.

From the University of Chicago Medical Center in the USA:

Zombie gene protects against cancer in elephants

Dead gene reborn helps destroy cells with damaged DNA

August 14, 2018

Summary: LIF6, a dead gene that came back to life, prevents cancer by killing cells with DNA damage.

An estimated 17 percent of humans worldwide die from cancer, but less than five percent of captive elephants who also live for about 70 years, and have about 100 times as many potentially cancerous cells as humans die from the disease.

Three years ago, research teams from the University of Chicago and the University of Utah, working separately, began to unravel why. They knew that humans, like all other animals, have one copy of the master tumor suppressor gene p53. This gene enables humans and elephants to recognize unrepaired DNA damage, a precursor of cancer. Then it causes those damaged cells to die.

Unexpectedly, however, the researchers found that elephants have 20 copies of p53. This makes their cells significantly more sensitive to damaged DNA and quicker to engage in cellular suicide.

In the August 14, 2018 issue of the journal Cell Reports, the University of Chicago team describes a second element of this process: an anti-cancer gene that returned from the dead.

Genes duplicate all the time, said Vincent Lynch, PhD, assistant professor of human genetics at the University of Chicago and the studys senior author. Sometimes they make mistakes, producing non-functional versions known as pseudogenes. We often refer to these dismissively as dead genes.

While studying p53 in elephants, however, Lynch and colleagues found a former pseudogene called...

Create This Special Vision Board To Manifest Your Dreams and Live Your Best Life The Event Chronicle

By Katalina Aster

It is difficult to pinpoint the birth year of vision boards. Some even say that this tool goes as far back as to cavemen times when people used to draw images on cave walls. We do know that vision boards spiked in popularity after the movie The Secret came out, which talked about the power of manifestationyou receive what you believe in receiving. To speed up the manifestation process, a vision board plays the role as a constant reminder of your goals and dreams, as well as a way to send out the request for these manifestations in clear languageimagery and feelings that they evoke.

Vision Board CreativeA vision board sends your requests into the universe, makes you excited to receive it, and motivates you to keep working toward your dreams.

Traditionally, a vision board is made of cut-out pieces from magazines all glued to one board; it contains all the images of things you want to manifest. However, this method can leave a board looking cluttered and confusing.

There is a better, easier, and more effective solution. You can create your vision board based on the ancient teachings of feng shuia study of energy that placement of objects creates in a space.

By using the same Bagua map used to create the correct placement in a room on a vision board, you can manifest amazing things for all nine categories in your life.

Dividing A Vision Board Into Nine Categories

In feng shui, there are nine categories that are located in every square-shaped space, be that a house, a room, and even a whole property. The same placement can be used for a square or rectangular vision board.

Feng Shui Bagua MapThe vision board is divided into nine equal parts, creating three rows of three items.

The top from left to right are money, reputation, and relationships.
The middle is family, health, and creativity.
The bottom is knowledge, career, and community.

Using the nine squares will make your vision board more organized, clear, and easy to make.

All you need to do is choose the images that inspire you for each categorycan be one or multiplethe images that make you feel the joy you would feel when you reach your full desires.

How does your perfect career, community, relationship look to you?

This is your board, no one elses, so listen to your heart when making it. To make your experience of assembling it even more fun and creative, turn it into a ritual of its kinds. Here are some quick tips to help you do...

The NRA and the Gun Industry in the Global Stratosphere Truthdig RSS

American weapons makers have dominated the global arms trade for decades. In any given year, theyve accounted for somewhere between one-third and more than one-half the value of all international weapons sales. Its hard to imagine things getting much worse or better, if you happen to be an arms trader but they could, and soon, if a new Trump rule on firearms exports goes through.

But lets hold off a moment on that and assess just how bad its gotten before even worse hits the fan. Until recently, the Trump administration had focused its arms sales policies on the promotion of big-ticket items like fighter planes, tanks, and missile defense systems around the world. Trump himself has loudly touted U.S. weapons systems just about every time hes had the chance, whether amid insults to allies at the recent NATO summit or at a chummy White House meeting with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, whose brutal war in Yemen is fueled by U.S.-supplied arms.

A recent presidential export policy directive, in fact, specifically instructs American diplomats to put special effort into promoting arms sales, effectively turning them into agents for the countrys largest weapons makers. As an analysis by the Security Assistance Monitor at the Center for International Policy has noted, human rights and even national security concerns have taken a back seat to creating domestic jobs via such arms sales. Evidence of this can be found in, for example, the ending of Obama administration arms sales suspensions to Nigeria, Bahrain, and Saudi Arabia. The first of those had been imposed because of the way the Nigerian government repressed its own citizens; the second for Bahrains...

5 Behaviors To Be More Mindful and Change Your Life The Event Chronicle

Learning to be more mindful will bring enormously positive changes into your life.

By OMTimes Magazine

Change Your Life By Being More Mindful

The significant changes in our lives are preceded by a myriad of small but meaningful changes that have the power to steer our lives to a new path.

Mindfulness is a way that can help us realize this, and these five suggested behaviors may empower us to learn how to be more present, more aware, kinder and receptive to our feelings and the reality around us.

We should point out that, when we speak of happiness,  we realize that It depends on our personal dedication to achieve it. Hence happiness is not a product of Fate.  Changes start happening when we gradually train our mind to be more perceptive, more engaged on what is happening around us, and allow us to be present in the now. Mindfulness allows us to be malleable, fluid and adaptable.

Our greatest enemy that prevents us from crossing these thresholds of opportunity is unquestionably the wandering mind.  Through some studies, scholars concluded that we spend about 30 to 40% of our time in the autopilot behavior.  This type of behavior commonly induces us to let our happiness to be the result of Fate. It is like to live a routine life where we become mere passengers rather than commanders-in-chief is like leaving our own joy in the hands of fate.

This is not the most appropriate. We offer you the suggested changes to include in your daily life these five keys to see fast and direct results.

1. Train to stay in the present moment and access/deal with your emotions,  as they happen.

Mindfulness is, above all, a way of life; a means to grow consciousness of our present moment in its fullness.

To be aware of characteristics feelings such as deception, disgust, contradiction or anger cannot be merely warehoused inside our brain with no consequence.

We must manage them, understand those emotions, take control of this inner world without delay.

2. Abstain from the urge to judge: Be Kind

Learn to live from your own perspective reality without judging. Others have every right to make, understand and live their life as they wish. Be mindful that even when someone seems without a path in life, it doesnt mean he is lost.

Your life is yours, be responsible for it and avoid criticism the way others decide to live their own lives. Realize that people tend to live in different realities, with different backgrounds and coping mechanisms, Adopting this humble attitude will allow you to have an entirely different perspective on unity in diversity.

3. Practice being present and being receptive at all times.

Learn to be a good listener. The secret of listening is to listen to understand, not to respond. The good listener will hear with its heart. In doing this, you will be able to control th...

MIT computer model from the 70s predicts end of civilisation by 2040 with major change in 2020 Signs of the Times

An apocalyptic computer model, processed by one of the world's largest computers in 1973, has predicted the end of civilization by 2040. The prediction came from a programme nicknamed World One, which was developed by a team of MIT researchers and processed by Australia's largest computer. It was originally devised by computer pioneer Jay Forrester, after he was tasked by the Club of Rome to develop a model of global sustainability. However, the shocking result of the computer calculations showed that the level of pollution and population would cause a global collapse by 2040. This shows that the world cannot sustain the current level of population and industrial growth for more than two decades. Australian broadcaster ABC has republished its original report from the 1970s, since there is just two years until a major change is expected according to the computer model.

The Father Of Artificial Intelligence Says Singularity Is 30 Years Away TruthTheory

by Jolene Creighton, Via Futurism

Youve probably been told that the singularity is coming. It is that long-awaited point in time likely, a point in our very near future when advances in artificial intelligence lead to the creation of a machine (a technological form of life?) smarter than humans.

If Ray Kurzweil is to be believed, the singularity will happen in 2045. If we throw our hats in with Louis Rosenberg, then the day will be arriving a little sooner, likely sometime in 2030. MITs Patrick Winston would have you believe that it will likely be a little closer to Kurzweils prediction, though he puts the date at 2040, specifically.

But what difference does it make? We are talking about a difference of just 15 years. The real question is, is the singularity actually on its way?

At the World Government Summit in Dubai, I spoke with Jrgen Schmidhuber, who is the Co-Founder and Chief Scientist at AI company NNAISENSE, Director of the Swiss AI lab IDSIA, and heralded by some as the father of artificial intelligence to find out.

He is confident that the singularity will happen, and rather soon. Schmidhuber says it is just 3...

No damage or injuries have been reported. Some locals took to social media to share their experiences.

Primaries Marked by Democratic Diversity, Trumps Picks Truthdig RSS

ST. PAUL, Minn. Democrats embraced diversity Tuesday in a primary night of firsts, while Republicans in Minnesota rejected a familiar face of the GOP old guard in favor of a rising newcomer aligned with President Donald Trump.

In Vermont, Democrats rallied behind the nations first transgender nominee for governor. Minnesota Democrats backed a woman who would be the first Somali-American member of Congress. And in Connecticut, the party nominated a candidate who could become the first black woman from the state to serve in Congress.

Still, Democrats in Minnesota also backed a national party leader who is facing accusations of domestic violence. He has denied the allegations, yet they threaten to undercut enthusiasm in his state and beyond.

On the other side, Trump tightened his grip on the modern-day Republican Party as the turbulent 2018 primary season lurched toward its finale. A one-time Trump critic, former two-term Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, lost a comeback attempt he was expected to win.

All but 10 states picked their candidates for Novembers general election by the time the days final votes were counted. While the full political battlefield isnt quite set, the stakes are clear: Democrats are working to topple Republican control of Congress and governors offices across the nation.

Four states held primaries Tuesday: Vermont, Connecticut, Minnesota and Wisconsin. Kansas gubernatorial primary, which was held last week, was finalized when Republican Gov. Jeff Colyer conceded defeat.

In Minnesota, Republican County Commissioner Jeff Johnson defeated Pawlenty, who once called Trump unhinged and unfit and was hoping to regain his old post. In Wisconsin, Gov. Scott Walker, endorsed just this week by Trump, won the right to seek a third term.

The presidents pick for Kansas governor, Secretary of State Kris Kobach, scored a delayed victory against Colyer, who became the first incumbent governor to fall this season.

In Vermont, Democrat Christine Hallquist won the Democratic nomination in her quest to become the nations first transgender governor. The former chief executive of Vermont Electric Cooperative bested a field of four Democrats that included a 14-year-old.

While she made history on Tuesday, Hallquist faces a difficult path to the governors mansion. Republican incumbent Phil Scott remains more popular with Democrats than members of his own party in the solidly liberal state.

Vermont Democrats also nominated Sen. Bernie Sanders, who hasnt ruled out a second presidential run in 2020, for a third term in the Senate. The 76-year-old democratic socialist won the Democratic nomination, but he is expected to turn it down and run as an independent.

Democrats appeared particularly motivated in Wisconsin, where eight candidates lined up for the chance to take on Walker.

Interview begins around 9.40 minutes into the show.Gung-ho interviewer, Bart Chilton, apparently hoping to recommend investing in Australian stocks, found out that Australia's economy is about as diverse as Uganda's and Ethiopia's, that it consists of holes and houses, and that Australian governments have stupidly marketised energy, making costs too high for Australian manufactures. "Energy and telecommunications are both being disastrously mishandled." Banks and mines dominate the Australian stock exchange, which reminds Keen of when they dominated the Japanese stock exchange - just before the 1990 bubble burst, with no important banks situated in Japan anymore. Our stock market is trivial compared to our bond market. Dr Keen also mentions the , which is worth a look.

Leaked document shows collapsed Morandi Bridge needed urgent repairs two years ago Signs of the Times

The appeal dated April 26, 2016, made by Senator of Liguria region Maurizio Rossi to the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport warned about a possible collapse of the Morandi Bridge. The document leaked by the unofficial Wikileaks Italy Twitter account says that "the bridge has been the subject of a worrying collapse of the joints" urging to "carry out extraordinary maintenance work without which the risk of closing it is concrete." Sputnik International cannot confirm the authenticity of the document, yet according to the web adress the document was published in the closed archives of senator Rossi's Liguria Civic political movement website. It also states that the Autostrade per Italy who was responsible to the construction of new infrastructure in the Liguria region couldn't agree with the local authorities on the motorway sections leading to a delay in planned road construction. "If a new road strategy with a broader scope of the Ligurian capital is not immediately prepared [...] the possible future total or partial closure of the Morandi Bridge would inevitably lead to the collapse of the entire Genoese road system," the appeal outlined. According to Reuters, Italy, the Autostrade Company is now looking into the causes of the collapse. In the statement to the press, the company noted that the bridge was under constant "observation and supervision" by Genoa Motorway Direction with a bridge crane having been installed for the planned maintenance to be carried out. Giovanni Castellucci, Autostrade's managing director, argued that the bridge built back in the 1960s wasn't dangerous, Huffington Post Italy reported.

The Kremlin has sent a message to North Korea, saying Russian President Vladimir Putin is ready to meet with Kim Jong-un soon and discuss three-way projects with both Koreas. The telegram is quoted by the North's state media. The Kremlin's missive was sent to congratulate Kim on National Liberation Day, a holiday celebrated in both Koreas that marks the end of their occupation by Japan in 1945, which was assisted by Soviet and American troops. According to the North Korean state news agency KCNA, Putin said he was confident that North Korea, South Korea and Russia can work together on joint projects in "mutually beneficial cooperation." He also said he would be willing to meet Kim "soon" to discuss urgent issues, both bilateral and regional. No specific date has been set. Comment: Putin's telegram came in reply to Kim's congratulatory message on the 73th anniversary of the liberation of Korea from Japan. "I confirm that I am ready to meet you in the near future, to discuss the pressing issues regarding bilateral ties and important regional matters," the telegram read. The Russian president congratulated Kim and North Koreans, adding that he appreciated Kim remembering that the Soviet soldiers and the Koreans fought together in the WWII.

Evacuations, rescues as 'historic' floods hit the US Northeast Signs of the Times

New Jersey declared a partial state of emergency on Tuesday as forecasts for further heavy rainfall posed new danger in parts of that state, New York and Pennsylvania, where rescuers hauled people from waterways, flooded cars and homes. Following several days of torrential rain throughout the northeastern United States, the National Weather Service issued new warnings for flooding in areas around Binghamton, New York, near the Pennsylvania border, and in New Jersey. Federal forecasters warned that areas in the region could see as much as 4 inches (10 cm) more rain on Tuesday. New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy said in a statement five of the state's 21 counties were under a state of emergency, where additional rainfall could further complicate flood cleanup." "Parts of our state have received nothing less than historic amounts of rain, and some communities received an entire month's worth in just a few hours," said Murphy.

Nuclear Fusion Updated project reviews Terra Forming Terra

  

I must admit that after discovering just how easy it is to produce a 3D spiral wave able to induce electron decay in Dark Matter, my interest in fusion waned.  As i have posted before, we have all the energy we want for the taking and anywhere inside our galaxy at least.

These research programs remain as excellent work in understanding our physical limits and much is been learned so bravo still.

This item gives us an update and general summary of the ongoing work which has isolated several separate protocols and is attempting to drive them home.  I continue to like LLP simply because containment is not the issue.  The issue is unsurprisingly materials science.  It is also capable of been very compact, but after saying just that i would like to spend the heavy coin to scale it all up ten fold.  I do think that this design will perform much better as scale climbs.

A recent study of how employees communicate in open-plan offices seemed to be the final nail in the coffin of this popular workplace design. But the study had an essential flaw, writes architect Ashley L. Dunn.

Recently, a team of Harvard researchers set out to determine whether open-plan offices help employees interact with each other. Open-plan offices have come under intense scrutiny, as studies link the design to poor acoustics and employee performance, but companies continue to build them, because theyre cost-effective, and theyre believed to foster communication and collaboration among employees. The Harvard study wasnt exactly encouraging, at least not at first glance: It concluded that wall-free offices encourage workers to talk less and email more. Collaboration appeared to be reduced in the subjects workplaces.

Trumps Prime Directive: Save American Culture From Maoist Forces Terra Forming Terra



 

The one big problem faced by POTUS is that he has to fight several large wars. Common sense dictates that he must solve them essentially one at a time and completely at that.   Yet before all that it is also necessary to eliminate the DEEP STATE which is central to all these wars.  The DEEP STATE is waging a Maoist campaign against western culture itself and it has become obvious.

Intel from Q  has informed us regarding ongoing actions against the DEEP STATE. I now think that its demise is eminent.  I also think that the Midterms will be a smashing Trump victory.  Dem efforts have been tepid to date and leadership is AWOL.  This can give him real control of both house and congress and i also note a large number of GOP congressmen and senators are stepping out which can only mean Trump endorsed replacements.

Then expect a wall reform legislation including some form of single payer medicare in particular.  The cultural war will be suddenly reversed through the reform of education including the universities in particular.  Having avowed Maoists brainwashing the non STEM crowd has got to stop..

This is what its like to live in North America, and more people became aware of it with the Edward Snowden leaks. There were many who blew the whistle before him as well, some who did not live long after the fact.

Dragon Harald Fairhair: The construction of a Viking DragonShip


I was unaware that the Norwegians had actually built one of these and had really got it right as well.  a lot of good questions got answered herel.   This one was crafted inside of two years.  Watch all the videos in this post.

It was also build as large as likely ever built as well.  Now i want to see this scaled back to a more practical size, not least because this size comes in at 70 tons.  60 foot length and a 15 foot beam should get us down to under twenty tons.  Assume ten pairs of oars for a crew of forty or so.

This was surely typical of the usual long ship of the vikings.

Better yet it is light enough that sledging it becomes plausible.  Thinner planks would make a big difference there.

There is an excellent prospect for building a fleet of these smaller craft for sailing in Salish Sea between Vancouver and Vancouver Island's Cowichan Valley which was the likely site of the original Vinland.  It is clearly no trick to...

'Gargoyle' Sighting - South of Boston, MA Terra Forming Terra













This time we got a good look without the face.  That the witness confirmed first impression of a gargoyle is important as he surely got it right.  This means not a bird and not a pterodactyl.  We have now had plenty of likely gargoyles and even some other actual IDs as well.

The Chupacabra is surely a gargoyle and there is plenty of game out there for a blood feed as well.  These creatures generally stay well clear of us and our animals though not always with a chicken coop and other small operations.  Larger operations really have way too much protection.

Again we have the Thunder Bird out there as well as the Chupacabra or Gargoyle and we also have a Pterodactyl also.  All these can sit down on a roof and will.

I live 25 minutes south of Boston. About 6 months ago I saw this insane thing. It was about 3 AM, I had been up late as I normally am. I stepped outside to smoke a cigarette. It was dark as Hell except for the stars and moon. As I was smoking I heard this noise of something flying. I look up and see this winged creature land on my neighbor's roof and just sit there like a Gargoyle would. I thought I was seeing sh*t or seeing something wrong but then the creature jumped up and flew away and I could see its whole body. It was the size of a small human but massive wings. It reminded me of a Gargoyle. I don't know what the f**k I saw but it was crazy. Has anyone ever had an experience seeing something like this? Humanoid creature with wings?

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

Opposing Bipartisan Warmongering is Defending Human Rights of the Poor and Working Class Dissident Voice

The decision by Democrat party president Harry Truman to bomb the cities of Hiroshima on August 6 and Nagasaki on the 9th with the newly developed nuclear weapon signaled to the world that the U.S. was prepared to use military force to back up its new-found position as the leader of the Western colonial-capitalist powers, now referred to as the Western alliance. The main audience for that grotesque display of racist violence in 1945 was the Soviet Union but some 73 years later, militarism and war continue to be the central instruments of U.S. foreign policy.

This is the lesson we must stress continually as the public is being subjected to a constant barrage of incitements to support the use of military force by the U.S state against a growing array of enemies and potential enemies from Russia and China to Iran and the never-ending war on terror. Working-class and poor people must oppose war in part because they are the expendable cannon fodder used to advance ruling-class dominance under the banner of protecting the national interests, which are really only those of the economic elites. Fighting for those interests means killing poor and working-class people in other parts of the world.

In this era of economic warfare between competing capitalist nations and newly forming capitalist blocs, taking an anti-war position is a pro-working class, pro-poor, pro-displaced peasant/farmer, and internationalist position. The economic sanctions (a form of warfare) that the U.S. levies against various nations have nothing to do with concerns for human rights official rationales notwithstanding but everything to do with undermining economic competitors and non-compliant states and movements as in Venezuela. It should be clear that supporting U.S. aggression in the form of economic warfare, subversion, proxy war and direct military intervention is, in fact, supporting the interests of the U.S.-based transnational capitalist class. Yet many leftists have embraced a crude national chauvinism and joined liberals in demonizing various peoples and nations and thus objectively providing support to and political cover for the capitalist/imperialist system that they pretend to oppose.

The structural crisis of international capital is also a crisis of the nation-state, especially in the centers of global capital from London to New York. The imposition of neoliberal economic restructuring in the West generated a crisis of legitimacy for the neoliberal global architecture that was carefully crafted over the last four decades. The post-war compromise between capital and labor that was officially negated with the economic crisis of 1973-75 and the turn to neoliberalism produced the conditions and politics that produced Donald Trump in 2016.

But the crisis of legitimacy also produced something else a more pronounced dependency by the state on the use of force, be it in the Black and Brown colonized areas where the economically margina...

Five years ago, Portland, Oregon, created a new policy: Protected bike lanes should be the default choice on major streets. But relatively few of the laneswhich use a physical barrier instead of a simple stripe to keep cars away from people on bikeshave been built. Part of the reason is funding, since lanes with concrete barriers on a two-way street could cost the city as much as $2.8 million a mile.

"Those Who Dont Take Heed Die of Ingratitude" Running 'Cause I Can't Fly

"Those Who Dont Take Heed Die of Ingratitude"
By Doug Uncola Lynn 

"One evening, while in college, I attended an extracurricular lecture held by my college adviser on nuclear proliferation. It was a concern that was close to his heart and I admired his doing something about it at the time. During his talk, he shared the parable of the frog in boiling water and it was the first time I had heard it told. Essentially, it boiled (pun intended) down to this: If you throw a frog into a pot of boiling water, it will immediately jump out to save its life. However, if you place the frog into a pot of room temperature water and slowly heat it to a boil, the frog will gradually boil to death.

The lesson from the story? For me, it was this: Inattention and complacency kills; gradually by degree at first, and then all once.

I believe this applies to people on a personal basis as well as on a grander scale. Consider how much we have progressed since Y2K.  After 911, I became that frog in the water before I jumped out a...

Stanfords Most Successful Remote Viewer Reveals the Locations of 4 Alien Bases On Earth Humans Are Free

What is remote viewing? Its an ability that allows the viewer to be able to describe a remote geographical location up to several hundred thousand kilometres away (even more) from their physical location one that they have never been to.

This skill was taught to soldiers in multiple countries around the world, and from what I understand, still is. In the United States, the Remote Viewing program ran for 25 years at Stanford Research Institute before 70 percent of it was declassified, it was run in conjunction with the CIA and other intelligence agencies.

In 1976, a presentation was given at the Institute of Electrical & Electronics Engineers (IEEE) on a paper published by the Institute on behalf of Hal Puthoff and Russell Targ, key players in what became known as the STARGATE project.

What About Australia? Armstrong Economics

QUESTION: It is clear our government seems to be going crazy. I know you use to live here in Sydney. We met many times when you did conferences here. I also know you once said you would like to retire in Australia. Has that changed?

Paul

ANSWER: Well, my dreams of retirement have not been working out. It seems the world is conspiring against me to go quietly into retirement. Yes, I love Australia. I have traveled all over and even went to Kakadu for two weeks and lived off the land fishing for Barramundi. I still keep a painting I love of the gum trees by a local artist. Here is me in the desert in Palm Valley. That was spectacular with herds of wild horses running free.

As always, there is a difference between the government and the people. There are socialists who support the government and others who are upset about stalking their children, creating their  Black Economy Taskforce to imposing the burden to collect Australian taxes upon companies mailing things to Australia. These are simply not NORMAL in a free society. No country can order others to collect their taxes and if someone is following your children, they are in plain clothes and readers have expressed concerns about how do you distinguish a pervert from a government agent?

Why is Asia Rising Against the West Armstrong Economics

Some people have written in and asked why we have issued a report that shows how and when China will displace the USA and the West as the Financial Capital of the world. Let me explain some interesting facts. If we look at the top ten cities for tourism, you will find that the half is in Asia. The worlds most visited city is actually Hong Kong. The top two are Asia as well.

 

  1. Hong Kong 26.69m visitors a year
  2. Bangkok, Thailand 18.73m
  3. London, UK 18.58m
  4. Singapore 16.87m
  5. Paris, France 15.02m
  6. Macau 14.31m
  7. Dubai, UAE 14.2m
  8. Istanbul, Turkey 12.41m
  9. New York City, US 12.3m
  10. Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia 12.15m

Even Macau, which is an autonomous territory that sits on the south coast of the Far Easts superpower China, is, according to a new study by the International Monetary Fund (IMF), set to overtake Qatar as the richest place in the world by 2020. Macau was the last European colony in Asia. On April 13th, 1987, Portugal and China announced the Sino-Portuguese Joint Declaration in which it was said that Macau, having been a Portuguese outpost for more than 400 years, would become Chinese on December 20th, 1999. It did, but not entirely. In the case of Macau, it was first leased to Portugal back in 1557 and eventually became a full actual colony in 1887.

The Federal Association of German Banks has also refused to explain.

MIT Computer Model Predicts Dramatic Drop In Quality Of Life Around 2020 And The "End Of Civilization" Around 2040 BlackListed News

Is humanity approaching a major turning point?  A computer model that was originally developed in 1973 by a group of scientists at MIT is warning that things are about to dramatically change.  If the computer predictions are accurate, our standard of living will start to decline dramatically around the year 2020, and we will witness the end of civilization around the year 2040.  Of course this is not the first time ominous predictions such as this have been made about our future.  For years, experts have been warning that we are heading for severe shortages of water, food and oil as our limited natural resources begin to run out.  For years, experts have been warning that our economic model is not sustainable and that we are heading for a historic collapse.  For years, experts have been warning about the alarming increase in seismic activity all over the planet and about the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.  Society is crumbling all around us, and the elements for a perfect storm are definitely coming together.

Mercury fillings, the EU and US FDA: One protects consumers and the other ignores them Signs of the Times

For an entire week each year, I focus on the campaign to end dental amalgam. Those silver fillings are really mercury fillings, and their use in America and around the world needs to stop - for health reasons, for environmental reasons, for workplace safety reasons and for social justice reasons. We have a united worldwide team, and we can win the campaign for mercury-free dentistry. I have worked closely with the leader of this campaign - Charlie Brown of Consumers for Dental Choice - and I have full confidence that we are on the path to victory. If you check out my August 12 interview with Charlie, I think you'll agree we have a winning strategy and a winning team in place. I believe so strongly in this campaign and its potential for full victory - the end of amalgam use worldwide - that I have stepped up to the table with a matching funds campaign. This week, through August 19, 2018, I match every dollar donated by you, your friends and everyone else, up to $125,000. Please join me with every dollar you can. I promise you that I will double it! The European Union Bans Amalgam for Children A sustained multiyear campaign led by Consumers for Dental Choice and its European NGO allies, joined by scholars and nonprofit groups across Europe, bore great fruit last year. In a rule spearheaded by two outstanding members of the European Parliament, the honorable Stefan Eck of Germany and the honorable Michele Rivasi of France, the European Union adopted a ban that virtually stops any amalgam use for children under age 15, for pregnant women and for breastfeeding mothers.

The emerging market currency crisis threatens to undermine whole global financial system Signs of the Times

We haven't seen emerging market currencies crash like this in over a decade, and analysts are warning that if this continues we could witness a devastating global debt crisis. Over the past decade, there has been an insatiable appetite for cheap loans in emerging market economies, and a very substantial percentage of those loans were denominated in U.S. dollars. When emerging market currencies crash relative to the U.S. dollar, lending dries up and servicing the existing loans becomes extremely oppressive, and that is precisely what we are witnessing right now. This week, most of the top headlines in the financial media have been about the crisis in Turkey. The Turkish lira fell another 8 percent against the U.S. dollar on Monday, and it is now down about 35 percent over the past week. Overall, the lira has fallen 82 percent against the U.S. dollar in 2018, and this is putting an enormous amount of stress on the Turkish financial system... "It is about credit, since Turkey has been a huge borrower in global capital markets over the past number of years when the world's central banks were encouraging investors to stretch for yield," David Rosenberg, chief economist and strategist at Gluskin Sheff, said in his daily market note. "Over half of the borrowing is denominated in foreign currencies, so when the lira sinks, debt-servicing costs and default risks rise inexorably." Turkey's economy, just like all of the other major economies around the world, is utterly dependent on the flow of credit, and now lending is becoming greatly restricted.

Big tech companies are just contract mercenaries for US intelligence agencies Signs of the Times

The Big Profits Driving Online Censorship This summer we have witnessed the increasing demand by mainstream media, Democratic Party legislators, and even former disgraced intelligence agency heads, for the silencing of dissenting viewpoints. Although the most recent wholesale ban on Alex Jones and Infowars on just about every social media platform out there is the most glaring and chilling example of outright censorship, the efforts of the Deep State to silence any voices of dissent or for presenting a narrative counter to that being peddled by the almost complete monopoly of social and mainstream media that serves them has been building in intensity for quite some time. The claims that the big tech companies that control all social media platforms through virtual monopoly are not required to meet the constitutional protections of the 1st amendment, because they are not governmental agencies, but private businesses, is patently false.

The Vatican Warns Putin to Stop Fighting the Anunnaki Operation Disclosure

VATICAN WARNS PUTIN: STOP FIGHTING THE ANUNNAKI

AUGUST 14, 2018

Source: Someones Bones



On Monday, Russian President Vladimir Putin received an unexpected letter authored by Vatican Secretary of State Pietro Parolin. Signed by Pope Francis and bearing an imprint of the Pontiffs Holy Seal, the correspondence commanded Putin to immediately cease and desist all hostile actions against Anunnaki across the globe, says former KGB agent Strelnikov Isaac Stepanovich.



For nearly two years, Putin has waged a clandestine war on the extraterrestrials, committing billions of rubles toward the development of anti-Anunnaki defense technologies. Russian Special Services have skirmished with Anunnaki invaders in Russia, Syria, Afghanistan, Crimea, the Ukraine, and Yemen; while the Anunnaki soundly won most battles, Russian forces did eke out two victories and on three occasions fought the aliens to a stalemate.

Over 700 brave Russians have fallen to these creatures. We will not stop now just because the Pope says so. These monsters kidnap, kill, and eat us. Putin was outraged because the context of the letter suggested the Anunnaki are our friends. Absurd, Stepanovich said.

The letter described the Anunnaki as a benevolent race of heavenly beings who had come in peace until Putin unilaterally declared war on them. The Anunnaki would have given us great gifts, the letter went on, had you [Putin] not provoked their wrath. The Anunnaki, Pope Francis wrote, were clearly victims of Russian aggression, and placed the onus on Putin to deescalate the crisis by standing down and possibly sacrificing himself to the Anunnaki as a sign of good faith. Either that or stand in Gods judgement.

The recent 'suicide flight' of the Q400 airplane in northwest America was a covert operation by the good guys to destroy the cabal base at Ketron Island from which a decommissioned sub the USS Richard B. Russell fired a missile at Air Force 1 to kill Trump on his way to his meeting with North Korean President Kim Jong Un.

The suicide Plane Marked Q400 was a drone designed to crash into the secret cabal base after the Trailing F15 jet fired its kill shot into the site. (the flight path was a 'Q' pattern)

The island also had a Cemex plant on it where childrens blood (after sacrifice) could be mixed within the cement.

Spec ops troops concluded that at that time there were no children in the facility which had been under observation since the Trump incident.

There is a hidden bloodline agenda (by ten Mafia Bloodlines and the Jesuits) to depopulate the earth via the Chimera Group (Insectoid ET Race) so they can inhabit earth...and is being carried out by their cabal / illuminati minions who have taken control of governments and nations all over the world.

A Writers Last Port of Call: V.S. Naipaul Dissident Voice

British author V.S. Naipaul at his home near Salisbury, Wiltshire, October 11, 2001 after it was announced that he has been awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. REUTERS/Chris Ison/POOL

S. Naipaul, the Nobel winning author who just died, was, like so many people, an enigma, at least in his writing. Lauded for his prose style and exquisite way with words, he was seriously criticized for his demeaning of Islam, women, Africans, and others in post-colonial countries, including the Caribbean from whence he came. Such criticism was amply justified.  He seems also to have been bigoted and irascible personally, while charming when he wished.  A strange character, many of whose political and cultural views I find abhorrent.

Nevertheless, if one only looked for beauty and truth in writers whose politics one agreed with, one would miss out on a lot.  For sometimes, despite themselves, writers pen words that come from a place where art and inspiration and personal anguish subvert their worst inclinations.  As Leonard Cohen has written: Theres a crack in everything, thats how the light gets in.  This is true for Naipaul.

He once said that fiction never lies, and while this may or may not be true, it is true that writers whose politics one may find repulsive can also, despite their conscious intentions, write books that glow with an extraordinary prose luminescence that mesmerizes and reveals deep insights.  This is the case with Naipauls The Enigma of Arrival, a work he calls a novel but that reads like an autobiography.  While his novel, A House for Mr Biswas, is considered his finest work and the book that made him famous, I think The Enigma of Arrival is a masterpiece. Deeply melancholic, it allows Naipauls shadow side to reveal truths that go far beyond the man himself.

The prototype for all journeys is life itself.  This being so, it follows that every destination prefigures death and of necessity poses an enigma.  For although one travels in part to arrive, at the same time ones anticipation of arrival harbors the fear of cessation.  It is because every elsewhere contains the worm of death that some people never embark on the voyage, while others go from place to place in search of paradise.

Naipaul cast anchor at the age of 18, leaving Trinidad for a scholarship at Oxford in England where aside from numerous travels, especially in the Third World he lived most of his life.  Setting o...

I didn't know it would go public...so watch for the Chimera Group repost and do you part for disclosure and send it to your social media so the people can see who is the real enemy of mankind on earth.

The Paradoxman asks:

Is Donald Trump actually draining the swamp as he promised in so many speeches leading up to and following his election? One of my long-time friends emailed me: So if you don't trust Trump ... it means you would rather have Hillary in his place? That was the only 2 to pick from. How about a little support for our president? I watch quite a few videos every day and have Ivona Reader read many articles I get for my review. The Deep State criminal operation that has been building the swamp for decades definitely needs draining. Its waters are murky and polluted. If the thousands of criminal indictments succeed in having primary players in the government corruption scandal brought to trial publicly, then I will know that Trumps rhetoric is backed by tangible evidence, unlike his predecessor. My friend also wrote: It is the Chimera Group ET race that rules this planet ... and have for a very long time. They are the ones who fucked with our creation that our creator created for us.

"Society will come back hard on this," said the Social Democrat leader, who also raised questions about the scope and timing of the attacks, which police suspect were coordinated via social media. "It looks very coordinated, almost like a military operation," Lfven said, adding that the police probe would show if the car fires were down to vandalism, organized crime or something else.

CNN Reports Details on Sexual Abuse by Over 300 Priests in Pennsylvania's Catholic Church Operation Disclosure

Report details sexual abuse by more than 300 priests in Pennsylvania's Catholic Church

By Daniel Burke and Susannah Cullinane

Updated 0110 GMT (0910 HKT) August 15, 2018

(CNN) A new grand jury report says that internal documents from six Catholic dioceses in Pennsylvania show that more than 300 "predator priests" have been credibly accused of sexually abusing more than 1,000 child victims.

"We believe that the real number of children whose records were lost or who were afraid ever to come forward is in the thousands," the grand jury report says.

"Priests were raping little boys and girls, and the men of God who were responsible for them not only did nothing; they hid it all. For decades.

Coded Messages in Suspicious Events: The Horizon Q400 Crash

AUGUST 14, 2018

The theft of the Horizon Q400 plane at Sea-Tac International airport by an airline mechanic named Rich was very odd by anyones standards, and there are many theories about why the Alaska Air mechanic, who seemed to be a nice guy, would steal a plane, perform some impressive aerial stunts and then crash it into an island.

Various people made note of the Q400, the pilots statement about video games, his possible exposure to flight simulators, and the possibility that mind control was involved. It just didnt add up. What was the motive?

I think all the press and loud calls for more airport security are just extraneous fallout from this event designed for another purpose.

Most of us reading this would now agree there are no accidents. With a Q400, and the following image I kept seeing everywhere

It seems that the launch site of the rogue missile that fired at President Trump's plane in an assassination attempt was the target of the 'runaway plane' operation. The plane 'hijacking' was used as a distraction while fighter jets destroyed the secret submarine base that was used by the cabal to launch the missile. Maybe those jets even INTERCEPTED another missile about to be fired?

An Anon who lives close to the nearby military base said that he has never seen fighter jets take off and land at the base. Seeing those fighter jets placed him on high alert for unusual events in the area.

Do President Trump and the Alliance have the plan under FULL control? They do indeed.

Tuesdays Primaries: Murphy Sails Through in Connecticut, Sanders Wins in Vermont Truthdig RSS

WASHINGTON The Latest on primaries in Connecticut, Minnesota, Vermont and Wisconsin (all times local):

11:20 p.m.

Former state Rep. Joe Radinovich has won a crowded Democratic primary to replace retiring U.S. Rep. Rick Nolan in a northeastern Minnesota swing district.

Radinovich defeated Rep. Jason Metsa, longtime former news anchor Michelle Lee and others on Tuesday. Radinovich served one term in the state House and managed Nolans 2016 re-election campaign.

It sets up another hard-fought general election in what has become one of the most expensive and competitive congressional districts in the country. Radinovich will face Pete Stauber, a St. Louis County commissioner and retired Duluth police officer.

Nolan announced his retirement earlier this year after narrowly winning three terms. The 8th District was a Democratic stronghold for decades before becoming more competitive in recent cycles. President Donald Trump carried the district by 15 percentage points.

11:10 p.m.

Democratic Rep. Tim Walz has won a three-way primary for Minnesota governor.

Walz leveraged his rural Minnesota connections and a geographically balanced ticket to defeat state Rep. Erin Murphy and Attorney General Lori Swanson in Tuesdays primary. Walz is leaving Congress after six terms representing southwestern Minnesota.

Walzs outstate appeal and pedigree as a former teacher and a National Guard veteran had long made him a favorite among Democrats trying to hang on to the office as two-term Gov. Mark Dayton retires.

But he lost the partys endorsement in June to Murphy and shook up his campaign soon afterward.

___

11:05 p.m.

County Commissioner Jeff Johnson has beaten former Gov. Tim Pawlenty in Minnesotas Republican primary for governor, derailing Pawlentys bid to reclaim his old job.

Johnson won Tuesday despite Pawlentys enormous fundraising and name recognition advantages. He also won despite his own history as the partys losing candidate for governor four years ago.

Johnson positioned himself as a more conservative candidate than Pawlenty. He branded the former two-term governor as part of the status quo and bashed him for calling Trump unhinged and unfit for the presidency in the weeks leading up to the 2016 election.

Pawlenty was hoping to resurrect his political career after flaming out as a presidential candidate in 2011. He spent the intervening years as a Washington lobbyist.

First Post, August 14, 2008 Running 'Cause I Can't Fly

During winters in Washington state its common for rain to fall daily for months on end. Frequently animals like raccoons, mice or squirrels will burrow into the walls and roofs of homes, trying to find a warm and dry place to nest.And so it was, one afternoon, that our house cat suddenly and frantically charged across the living room into the corner, howling ferociously at something we couldnt yet see. After clawing the object several times, the force of her strike threw it into the middle of the room- a small, gray mouse, now bleeding from its head, and trembling wildly in shock and pain. The cat, now sure of her catch, slowly strolled over and sat in front of the mouse, eyeing it menacingly, eager, as cats are fond of doing, to continue slowly torturing her victim. The mouse, realizing there was no possible escape, sat there, staring directly into the cats eyes towering so high above him. Before we could move to save him, he suddenly pulled himself upright, stood on his back legs, and, shouting his death cry of SCREEEE!!!, jumped as high as he could straight towards the cats face. The cat, of course, caught him in midair, and dispatched him with a crunch of her powerful jaws. Ive often thought of the courage of that mouse, who decided, when the outcome was inescapable, to leave life under his own terms, without surrender, beaten down but unconquered, in the final and bravest deed of his life.

Poll: Democrats Favor Socialism Over Capitalism Truthdig RSS

Democrats in 2018 feel more positive toward socialism than capitalism, according to a Gallup Poll released Monday.

Fifty-seven percent of respondents indicated they had a positive view of socialism, a percentage that has not changed drastically since 2010. The major change, Gallup reports, has been a less upbeat attitude toward capitalism, dropping to 47% positive this yearlower than in any of the three previous measures.

The survey is the fourth time Gallup has measured views of socialism among Democrats in this poll. It specifies that the questions wording does not define socialism or capitalism but simply asks respondents whether their opinion of each is positive or negative.

The sharpest contrasts in views of socialism, the survey revealed, were between older and younger Americans, on both sides of the political aisle:

<blockquote>Americans aged 18 to 29 are as positive about socialism (51%) as they are about capitalism (45%). This represents a 12-point decline in young adults positive views of capitalism in just the past two years and a marked shift since 2010, when 68% viewed it positively. Meanwhile, young peoples views of socialism have fluctuated somewhat from year to year, but the 51% with a positive view today is the same as in 2010.</blockquote>

These poll results have been building slowly since the 2016 election, Gallup infers, starting with Bernie Sanders competitive challenge to Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primary.

The month after Clinton lost the presidential election to Donald Trump, membership in the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) surged; six times as many people joined in November 2016 as in the previous month.

In November 2017, DSA-backed candidates won 15 races on election night, in states from Virginia to Montana, as reported by Slate. Most were local wins, except for that of Lee Carter, a 30-year-old Marine veteran who beat his Republican opponent for a Virginia House of Delegates seat by nine points. In Pennsylvania in May, four DSA-backed candidates won their primaries.

Then, on June 26, first-time, DSA-backed candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez defeated 10-term Congressman Joe Crowley in a New York primary race, and the DSA surpassed 40,000 mem...

"Your Whole Life Is Borrowed Time"

"I cant remember if this is a real movie plot, or if I just want it to be. A man with a boring job is on his way to work when his attention is caught by some unexpected detail in his otherwise familiar routine - a peculiar insect, a pattern in the concrete, a cryptic slogan on a t-shirt. This detail seems extremely significant to him, but he doesnt know why.

The strange sight wakes him up from the autopilot-mode by which he has been living his life. He is suddenly aware, for the first time, how complex and interesting his local high street is, and he stops to take it in. Around him pass hundreds of distinctly different people, each a unique individual, driven by some unseen personal motivation.

Crazy Rich Asians Is a Success Story That Audiences, and Hollywood, Shouldnt Miss Truthdig RSS

So much of Hollywoods meager push for diversity has resulted in people of color making bad movies to match those made by white men for decades. The reason is its hard to make good movies, no matter your color. Its a numbers game. Make enough movies and some are bound to be good. The problem is only white men have been given the chance to make enough movies for that ratio to tilt in their favor.

Fortunately, Jon Chu, director of tent-pole movies like G.I. Joe: Retaliation and a pair of Justin Bieber documentaries, was given the chance to adapt Crazy Rich Asians. Even more fortunate was casting the effervescent Constance Wu as his lead. Wu plays Rachel Chu, an NYU economics professor who travels with her boyfriend, Nick Young (Henry Golding), to his hometown of Singapore for his best friends wedding.

The action begins when Young and Chu are photographed by a Malaysian influencer and, in a sprightly montage, the moment goes viral on social media, causing every nubile in the South Pacific to ask, Who is Rachel Chu? For the audience, the more pressing question would be: Who is Nick Young? Hes heir to a global hotel empire, thats who, making him the regions most eligible bachelor.

Nick had until then kept his secret from Rachel because he wanted her to like him for who he was and not for his money. The other key detail from his background that hes been shielding her from is his mother, Eleanor (Michelle Yeoh), who oversees the family business and wants her number-one son to return to Singapore and marry a proper Chinese woman, not one raised in the U.S.

Americans are given to pursuing their passions instead of putting family first, Eleanor admonishes her Nick when it becomes clear he plans to marry Rachel. Its a familiar conflict in movies with ethnic characters, but director Chu and his writing team of Peter Chiarelli and Adele Lim imbue it with an emotional veracity that elevates it from hackneyed to heartfelt.

A rowdy bachelor party for the boys, and a corresponding soire for the girls, are shown in scenes that seem de rigueur in a rom-com. But the tonally miscued bloody revenge attack on Rachel that follows isnt. Its a turning point that starts her thinking maybe her million-dollar bachelor isnt worth all the trouble.

The good news is her old New York girlfriend, Goh Peik Lin (Awkwafina), has her back. The Queens-born rapper made her mark e...

Do You Need Proof Of Weather Geoengineering? The Event Chronicle

By Catherine J. Frompovich

Whats with the weather where you are?  Everyone talks about the weather, but no one can control the weather!  Not so fast.there are numerous weather control or weather engineering patents.  Here is a wallpaper scroll listing most of them.

Recently, I heard a talking head on the local news radio station proclaim that humans have only 30 years left to be able to live on Planet Earth, as conditions for life are getting to be unsustainable.  The person making that remark was from a university.  Can we believe it or was that, like most science today, consensus science?

In the Saturday, August 11th, issue of Dane Wigingtons weekly report, he wrote this introduction:

Our world is changing to a degree and at a rate that few yet understand. Wheels have been set in motion that can no longer be stopped. How will the masses react to what is unfolding? How long do we have until major links in the chain of our current reality begin to break?

As a concerned individual in many fields (research, journalism, health, the environment and human rights), Id like to add my two cents worth to Danes in the hope it can bring some sensibility to those who still question weather geoengineering.

Recently, I had the opportunity to interact with a young man in his early twenties and we talked about those contrails in the sky.  I took the opportunity to explain to him the difference between real contrails and weather engineering spraying some call chemtrails.

When I pointed out real contrails evaporate shortly behind jet engines, whereas those weather geoengineering lines can be seen as being sprayed and then periodically turned off for a period of time and restarted, as depicted in the two videos below.

Pennsylvania Priests Molested More Than 1,000 Kids Since 1950s, Grand Jury Finds Truthdig RSS

HARRISBURG, Pa. Hundreds of Roman Catholic priests in Pennsylvania molested more than 1,000 children and possibly many more since the 1950s, and senior church officials, including a man who is now the archbishop of Washington, D.C., systematically covered up the abuse, according to a grand jury report released Tuesday.

The real number of abused children might be in the thousands since some secret church records were lost, and victims were afraid to come forward, the grand jury said.

Church officials routinely and purposefully described the abuse as horseplay and wrestling and inappropriate conduct. It was none of those things. It was child sexual abuse, including rape, Attorney General Josh Shapiro said at a news conference in Harrisburg.

The report put the number of abusive clergy at more than 300. In nearly all of the cases, the statute of limitations has run out, meaning that criminal charges cannot be filed. Many of the priests are dead or retired, while others have been dismissed from the priesthood or put on leave.

We are sick over all the crimes that will go unpunished and uncompensated, the grand jury said.

Authorities evaluated each suspect and were able to charge just two, including a priest who has since pleaded guilty. Shapiro said the investigation is ongoing.

The grand jury accused Cardinal Donald Wuerl, who leads the Washington archdiocese, of helping to protect abusive priests when he was Pittsburghs bishop. Wuerl, who led the Pittsburgh diocese from 1988 to 2006, disputed the allegations.

While I understand this report may be critical of some of my actions, I believe the report confirms that I acted with diligence, with concern for the victims and to prevent future acts of abuse, he said in a statement. I sincerely hope that a just assessment of my actions, past and present, and my continuing commitment to the protection of children will dispel any notions otherwise made by this report.

The grand jury scrutinized abuse allegations in dioceses that minister to more than half the states 3.2 million Catholics. Its report echoed the findings of many earlier church investigations around the country in its description of widespread sexual abuse by clergy and church officials concealment of it.

Most of the victims were boys, but girls were abused, too, the report said.

The abuse ranged from groping and masturbation to anal, oral and vaginal rape. One boy was forced to say confession to the priest who sexually abused him. A 9-year-old boy was forced to perform oral sex and then had his mouth washed out with holy water. Another boy was made to pose naked as if being crucified and then was photographed by a group of priests who Shapiro said produced and shared child pornography on church grounds.

The grand jury concluded that a succession of Catholic bishops and oth...

NY Times Attempting To Meddle In Brazilian Election By Publishing Essay By Corrupt Motherfucker Qntra

Today the New York Times published an opinion piece by disgraced and imprisoned former Brazilian president Luiz Incio Lula da Silva with the apparent intent to influence the outcome of the upcoming Brazilian election (archived). This comes after the New York Times has spent nearly two years attempting to delegitimize US President Donald Trump election with a social engineering campaign alleging Russian influence in the form of foreign Facebook memes affected the outcome of the 2016 US presidential election.1

In the piece Lula attempts to frame his and his party's decade and a half long kleptocratic reign as a "labor movement" and the criminal investigations that leaded him in jail and his successor impeached as a "right-wing coup".

Lula is attempting to run in the Brazilian presidential election from prison against a "Great Again" candidate despite his conviction as a corrupt motherfucker. Brazilian prosperity peaked in the 19th century under Emperor Pedro II, and lags behind the successes of its imperial age as it as been afflicted by socialists and kleptocrats of all flavors. For maximum meddling value the New York Times published the corrupt motherfucker's piece in English, Spanish, and Portuguese.

Authoritarian Revocations: Australia, Terrorism and Citizenship Dissident Voice

Contrary to any popular perceptions of Australias legal system, a dislike of rights reigns with pious conviction on both sides of the political aisle.  Rights are the stuff of nonsense and nuisance, revocable for those deemed undesirable. The Australian constitution, a heavily dull document, remains silent on many important liberties; the common law is relied upon to fill in gaps (think of that conjuration known as the implied constitutional right to freedom of communication on political subjects). Parliament, mystically wise, is meant to be the grand guardian.

In terms of citizenship, Australias parliament has been rather cavalier on the idea of citizenship, exploiting the absence of any specific reference to the term in the arid document that grants it legislative powers.  In 2015, national security considerations became the basis for legislation stripping individuals of citizenship in certain instances where terrorism was an issue.  While citizenship can be lost in certain instances common to other countries, the arbitrary revocation of citizenship via executive fiat is possible under the Citizenship Act 2007 (Cth).

The relevant minister, goes the wording of s. 35A, may determine in writing that a person ceases to be an Australian citizen in various instances involving convictions for certain offences, including terrorism.  But convictions might not be necessary; the minister might deem it against the public interest for the person to remain an Australian citizen. This is all made ever vaguer on the issue of what constitutes recruitment and the status of foreign fighters.  We remain at the mercy of security considerations.

Parliament did stop short of rendering citizens stateless, making the provisions apply to dual nationals.  But it yielded two outcomes: that the relevant minister would be effectively governed by the consideration that the Australian citizen might have citizenship of another country, however tenuous that link would be, and that any powers to deprive that person of Australian citizenship could be exercised to limited review.

This curiously venal formulation was always problematic; for one, such laws are not, specifically, with respect to aliens or with respect to immigration, terminology that is to be found in the constitution.

Khaled Sharrouf became the debutant to lose his Australian citizenship under the amendments, his reputation marked by a spectacularly gruesome display of images sporting his son holding a severed head.

The indelible images of suffering and stories of loss are everywhere in #Gaza. The family of 19 in three small rooms whose only drinking water comes from plastic jugs filled at the mosque. The woman who lost 38 members of her family during Israeli strikes in 2014. The man who lived with 49 others in a relatives house after his neighborhood of Shujaiya was flattened. But there is something else that abides in the day-to-day life in Gaza that for me resonates just as deeply: a kind of stubborn resilience in the face of catastrophe.

The other night I was walking along a spit of sand and rock that forms part of the Gaza harbor with Raed, my colleague and translator. The place was rippling with everyday life: fishermen pulling up their nets, laughing and giving each other grief; kids posing for selfies; families gathered under beach umbrellas at small plastic tables, sharing a modest picnic.

A young couple with their three kids invited us to join them. The children nibbled from bags of chips, eyeing me shyly. Rana Dilly poured mango soda into small plastic cups while her husband, Ahmad, pushed an unopened package of chocolate wafers toward me. I politely declined, which of course was a mistake. He laughed and pushed the package closer, telling me, You are with Palestinians! In other words, your resistance to our hospitality is futile!

Ahmad told me that despite the hardships and frequent dangers, he tries to come to this little finger of land nearly every day, just to clear his head and have some kind of normal feeling. He brings the family once or twice a week. I want to share life, he told me. To share some things with my family and my kids. To show them something is possible.

Radioactive Sheep, an Anomalous Flash, and a Nuclear Mystery The Event Chronicle

By Brett Tingley

With as many nuclear weapons as there are out there in the world, its amazing there havent been more mishaps, accidents, or rogue detonations. While there have been a few close calls like the 1961 Goldsboro B-52 crash in my home state of North Carolina, so far weve been lucky not to have any major incidents. That we know of, that is.

Although its kind of hard to hide a mushroom cloud. Unless its underground or underwater

While a nuclear weapon detonation would be pretty difficult to conceal, unexplained clouds of radiation circling the globe over the last year or two might suggest that someone is testing weapons on the sly. While in this most recent case theres little to go on other than anomalous radiation detection, a still unexplained incident from 1979 came complete with an unidentified double flash of bright light. The American-operated Vela Hotel satellite detected two anomalous bright flashes of light near the Prince Edward Islands off the coast of Antarctica. It was determined at the time that the flashes likely came from a secret nuclear detonation yet the perpetrator remained unknown.

Now, new research conducted by scientists at the Otago University at Wellington add to the suspicion that the Vela incident was indeed a nuclear detonation. The researchers examined previously unpublished studies of sheep thyroid glands conducted by U.S. military researchers in Australia following the incident and discovered abnormally high levels of iodine-131, a byproduct of nuclear weapons. According to their publication, these findings support the theory t...

To progressive Detroiters though, her religion isn't the reason for celebration. Rather, it's [...]

Classified Human Subjects Research Continues at DOE The Event Chronicle

By Steven Aftergood

dozen classified programs that involved research on human subjects were underway last year at the Department of Energy.

Human subjects research refers broadly to the collection of scientific data from human subjects. This could involve physical procedures that are performed on the subjects, or simply interviews and other forms of interaction with them.

Little information is publicly available about the latest DOE programs, most of which have opaque, non-descriptive names such as TristanIdaho Bailiff and Moose Drool. But a list of the classified programs was released this week under the Freedom of Information Act.

Human subjects research erupted into national controversy 25 years ago with reporting by Eileen Welsome of the Albuquerque Tribune on human radiation experiments that had been conducted by the Atomic Energy Commission, many of which were performed without the consent of the subjects. A presidential advisory committee was convened to document the record and to recommend appropriate policy responses.

In 2016, the Department of Energy issued updated guidelines on human subjects research, which included a requirement to produce a listing of all classified projects involving human subjects. It is that listing that has now been released.

Research using human subjects provides important medical and scientific benefits to individuals and to society. The need for this research does not, howeve...

George Orwell Warned Us of the Most Dangerous Type of Censorship The Daily Sheeple

The enemy is the gramophone mind, whether or not one agrees with the record that is being played at the moment. ~George Orwell

The big tech companies are now openly censoring popular viewpoints and deleting select social media pages who supposedly violate community guidelines.

There is, of course, never a detailed explanation of why companies like You Tube and Facebook delete user generated pages (our You Tube page was deleted in 2017 for no apparent reason and our Facebook page has been throttled down to almost no reach), and there is never a reasonable way to appeal for the reinstitution of these pages.

The end result of this type of censorship, however, quite likely will not bring about the feared Soviet style clampdown on ideas that challenge the establishment. Its more reasonable to expect that these companies have fallen pray to monopolistic hubris and will soon see massive declines in viewership, collapsing stock prices and the revolt of angry shareholders. In other words, these companies are shooting themselves in the feet.

That said, the current social/political/media climate in America today is likely to bring about the rise of a far more insidious and dangerous type of censorship: self-censorship.

The Cambridge dictionary defines self-censorship as:

control of what you say or do in order to avoid annoying or offending others, but without being told officially that such control is necessary:

Wikipedia defines it as:

Self-censorship is the act of censoring or classifying ones own discourse. This is done out of fear of, or deference to, the sensibilities or preferences (actual or perceived) of others and without overt pressure from any specific party or institution of authority. ~...

Twitter storm erupts as Netanyahu & Corbyn face off over 'anti-Semitism' charges Signs of the Times

Twitter has turned into a battleground after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu waded into the UK Labour Party's anti-Semitism row, trading barbs with Jeremy Corbyn over Palestinian terrorists and Israeli killings in Gaza. Corbyn has had to fend off fresh accusations of anti-Semitism after the right-wing Daily Mail reported Friday that, during a visit to Tunisia in 2014, the Labour leader laid a wreath on the graves of a Palestinian group that killed 11 Israeli athletes and a German policeman at the 1972 Munich Olympics. The report said that the cemetery contained both a memorial to the 47 people killed by an Israeli airstrike on a Palestinian Liberation Organisation (PLO) building in 1985, as well as the graves of members of Black September - a militant group that splintered from the PLO before carrying out the Munich attack. The Daily Mail published pictures purporting to show Corbyn holding a wreath of flowers close to the graves of Black September members.

Abducted boy died in Islamic exorcism ceremony in New Mexico desert, prosecutor claims Signs of the Times

Andrew Hay / Reuters Personal items from the New Mexico compound where 11 malnourished children were found earlier this month A missing three-year-old boy, whose remains were discovered buried at a compound in the New Mexico desert, had died during an Islamic ritual ceremony to cast out demonic spirits, a prosecutor told a court hearing on Monday. Prosecutor John Lovelace made his statement at the pretrial hearing of five adults accused of multiple counts of child abuse, for running an off-the-grid compound in the New Mexico desert where 11 malnourished children were found living in squalor earlier this month. Three-year-old Abdul Ghani reportedly died as his father performed an Islamic ceremony known as a ruqya - performed by some believers to cast out evil spirits known as jinn - on him, Lovelace claimed in court. The prosecutor said that the other children at the compound had revealed the macabre details of Ghani's death to investigators after the compound was raided. The boy's body was washed several times, wrapped in a sheet, and buried near the compound, Lovelace claimed.

The US infowar on China and its One Belt One Road project Signs of the Times

The US' Hybrid War on OBOR doesn't stop at the military phase but importantly continues into the informational domain in order to undermine China's New Silk Roads through the planting of Trumpist "time bombs" in strategic transit states that can only be neutralized by a comprehensive perception management strategy that breaks from the centralized model that Beijing is known for. Two of the top three global trends that the author analyzed in his latest piece for Eurasia Future are Hybrid War Balkanization and Trumpism vs. Globalism, both of which are weapons of asymmetrical warfare against China's One Belt One Road (OBOR) global vision of New Silk Road connectivity. The first actually contributes to the proliferation of the second, however, through the transition of a failed unconventional war to an indefinitely prolonged infowar that seeks to accomplish a pair of complementary objectives that will be explained in this analysis, the point of which is to draw attention to a little-known but very "politically incorrect" vulnerability afflicting the Silk Road. Simply put, China has a poor handle on perception management techniques outside of its borders, and it's accordingly ill-equipped to confront the multitude of informational challenges that will inevitably confront its global OBOR ambitions.

If You Hate Spiders You Should Not Be Wearing This Color Awareness Act

Research recently presented at the American Arachnological Society meeting back in June might work as some very good advice for many of us. If you arent a fan of spiders, you might need to hear about this.

Professor of Biology at the University of Cincinnati George Uetz has a lab full of wolf spiders and so in going over their dichromatic vision he knows that they can not see things the way that we humans do. While testing their perception of color he and his team watched male and female spiders react to a video of a courting spider. They were able to adjust the digitalization of the dance and through that adjust the color as well.

Uetz said as follows in a statement:

The assumption was wolf spiders dont pay attention to color. But we found that isnt really true.

We need to look more closely at the neurobiology of their eyes. We need to understand what their retinas do.

You see, these spiders are mostly color blind but they are sensitive to light in green wavelengths. They are only able to see green and ultraviolet. In their research, they found that the female spiders responded better to the color green and were not as interested in grayscale which would be what they normally would see unless something were in the color green. It seems color really does make a difference to these spiders.

If you want to avoid spiders at least wolf spiders anyways, you might want to avoid wearing the color green. Wearing it could make them much more attracted to your presence than you think. What do you think about these findings?

While more research will be done this is still quite interesting. The team is going to in the future build a 3D screen and make a complete virtual world for these spiders to really take things to the next level. Who knows what they may end up learning about our arachnid friends.

There Are 6 Powerful Types of Intuition Awareness Act

We all have an intuition. While yours might be different from that of someone else, it is still quite present whether you notice it or not.

Our intuition is our gut feeling, this can come in many forms and is different for everyone. For some, their intuition is a strong feeling and for others, it could be almost as if a literal voice in the back of their mind. When it comes to making good decisions and moving through life properly, we rely on our intuition a lot.

Now, there are quite a few different kinds of intuition and for some, this is where they get confused. You might think intuition is one thing only to realize that for you it is completely different. Below I am going to go over some of the different kinds of intuition and what those differences entail. This should help you learn a lot about yourself and how your intuition works for you. Just about everyone will be able to identify with one of these types of intuition.

6 Types Of Intuition:

1. Observant Intuition

People with this kind of intuition tend to pick up more on visual cues. Any small difference is something they will notice right off the bat. If something is missing they might not realize what it for a moment but they will feel as if there is something out of place. They are much more in tune with body language and other things of the sort.

2. Questioning Intuition

People with this kind of intuition tend to go straight to the source. They make all their assumptions based off of answers they get when they survey others. They are more so inclined to look at things from a one on one viewpoint instead of an overall viewpoint.

3. Unexpressed Intuition

Many of us have this type of intuition, as it is the type of intuition that we ignore and regret lately.  If you ignore your intuition repeatedly it will end up being not so effective. For these people, they have an intuition but it is much quieter than it should be.

4. Adaptive Intuition

People with this kind of intuition, for the most part, are those with the intense gut feeling. They get this nervousness in the pit of their stomach and it tells them something is wrong. It is in a sense a kind of warning for them and can mean a wide range of things.

5. Analytical Intuition

People with this kind of intuition tend to do a lot of research before making their decisions. They explore all their options and pay attention to detail. You wont find people with this kind of intuition being impulsive at all.

6. Empathetic Intuition

People with this kind of intuition are usually the people everyone comes to with their problems. They look at things on a more emotional level than most others and are able to make decisions from there. They are sometimes a bit confused but even things out in the end.

12 Impressive Benefits of Using Cannabis On Your Spiritual Path Awareness Act

The debate regarding cannabis has been going on for years, however, most people on the side of marijuana can agree that it has many benefits.  Many of those benefits could fall into the spiritual category.

Before we dive into the topic please remember, if you dont want to use cannabis you dont have to and your spiritual experience will still be fine without it. It is in no way necessary. Many spiritual teachers and others of the sort are actually against using it for spiritual reasons as it in their eyes hinders the process. That being said, believe what you want and if you choose to go forward with cannabis use that is all up to you.

Many ancient cultures throughout the years have used cannabis as a medicine for a countless number of things and its benefits in that aspect are-as you most likely are coming to know, also seemingly endless. That being said, Native American, Indians, and other cultures have also used the plant as a means of putting themselves in touch with the universe. Mystics, shamans, and so forth would really bring it more prominently to the world.

Below I am going to go over some of the spiritual benefits of using cannabis. These benefits will not seem inviting to everyone but some people feel they are quite important. Regardless, they are interesting to be aware of.

12 Spiritual Benefits of Cannabis:

1. It calms our nerves.

Using cannabis can and will help calm the nerves of most people. When stressed and unable to wind down it really can help. Many with severe anxiety use it as their treatment or medication and it works wonders.

2. It helps you feel that sense of oneness.

It helps you to feel more connected to the people and things around you. It really makes the thread that binds us altogether prominent. It makes a lot of things clear.

3. It cuts down the ego.

Cannabis is something that does help drain the ego for many. When youve gotten worked up and high in your own mind cannabis can really bring you back down to where you need to be. It will literally dissolve your ego.

4. It allows you to be in a timeless moment.

During meditation, something spectacular happens. Everything comes to a standstill and nothing feels like it is moving at all. Many claim to have gone through this when using cannabis. It is like they are able to really slow down.

5. It centers you with the Universe.

Cannabis helps us to center ourselves with the Universe. If youve been struggling to really become more at peace or connected it can help. That being said, you still have to do your part, it wont do all of these things for you completely.

Americas Only Problem With Its Obscene War Budget is That Trump Didnt Thank John McCain in a Speech MintPress News

President Donald Trump signed a $717 billion military spending bill on August 14. What made headlines was not the size of the bill or what is in the bill. Rather, most were upset that Trump did not thank Senator John McCain, whose name was put on the bill by his colleagues in Congress to honor him.

On CNN, Jake Tapper, host of The Lead,  said Trump thanked a laundry list of people before officially signing the John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act. One person who wasnt on that list of people that he thanked? Outspoken Trump critic and the namesake of the bill, Senator John McCain. You know, the decorated war hero, who was a prisoner of war, continues to serve as a United States senator, the chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee.

The bill the president signed is called the John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act. No mention of him by the president today, Tapper added. Since President Trump would not do it, let us here on The Lead congratulate Senator John McCain and his family and thank him for his service to the country.

Tappers performance was a reminder of how the United States establishment press is indifferent to the ballooning of the military industrial-complex that occurs each year.

Many liberals were also outraged. Again, they were not upset that the war-making budget of the U.S. is expanding by hundreds of millions of dollars. For example, Steve Benen at MSNBC.com wrote, It would have cost Trump nothing to say a few kind words about the ailing senator, and it might have gained him quite a bit.

Had the president recognized McCains service and sacrifices, many observers wouldve taken note of Trumps willingness to take the high road, Benen added.

But what is in the $717 billion military spending bill that Trump signed? What military contractors benefit from this legislation that only 10 senators and 66 representatives voted against?

The bill authorizes $921 million for military construction in overseas contingency operations, which is the Pentagons euphemism for empire-building or war-making in countries and regions around the world.

That figure is a 23 percent increase from the $748 million in the military spending bill for fiscal year 2018.

As Ryan Alexander of Taxpayers for Common Sense wrote in 2017, this continues a practice President Barack Obamas administration employed, where projects are moved off budget and do not count toward Budget Control Act caps. However, the military projects this slush fund pays for still add considerably to the countrys trillions of dollars in debt.

Sixty-nine million dollars is appropriated for a high value detenti...

Chicago police raid the wrong home; hold entire family, including children, at gunpoint Signs of the Times

Two little boys who used to look up to police have been traumatized and their view of police tarnished after a SWAT team burst into their home at night and held the entire family at gunpoint, including the children. The family was innocent and the raid was on the wrong home. All too often, police raid the wrong home. Whether it's due to the wrong address on the warrant, faulty GPS, or just blatant carelessness, the results are the same. Innocent people are traumatized, assaulted, beaten, or even killed. A Chicago family has just found this out the hard way. Peter Mendez, 9, was eating dinner with his family earlier this month when multiple cops with the Chicago police department kicked in his door and raided their home with guns drawn. Peter, his little brother, and his mother and father were all held at gunpoint. "Just the saddest moment," said little Peter through tears. Peter is now suffering from trauma stemming from the incident and relives the nightmare every day. After police kicked in the door and held the kids at gunpoint, their father, Gilbert Mendez was thrown to the floor and handcuffed. The entire time, Peter thought they were going to kill him.

Border interrogation: Reza Aslan says Israel is 'becoming a full-blown police state' Signs of the Times

Yesterday Peter Beinart, the liberal Zionist writer, disclosed that he had been detained at Ben Gurion airport on August 12 for an hour of questioning of his political opinions/activities. Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu promptly released an unprecedented statement saying the detention had been a mistake, and Beinart said he would accept Netanyahu's apology only if he apologized to Palestinians who are subjected to far worse. Many Zionists have responded angrily to the news by saying that the country is damaging itself in the eyes of the world by harassing left-leaning Jews who want to visit. And the Israeli attorney general says she is looking into the detention incidents. Today Reza Aslan, the bestselling writer on religion who was born in Iran and lives in LA, was moved by Beinart's experience to tell his own story on twitter: Peter's experience has spurred me to share mine. 2 weeks ago, as I was crossing back into Israel from Jordan, I was separated from my family and detained by Shin Bet. "We can make it so you don't see your kids for a long time" I was warned. This is what happened next. The Shin Bet lady, who already knew everything about me and my family's journey around the world, began with "You think because you're a public person I can't do whatever I want with you?" I was floored. This is how interrogations begin in police states.

Censorship Is What Happens When Powerful People Get Scared The Event Chronicle

Only the weak hit the fly with a hammer.

Bangambiki Habyarimana

By Michael Krieger

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

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

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

But its all out in the open now. Facebook isnt even hiding the fact that its outsourcing much of its fake news analysis to the Atlantic Council, a think tank funded by NATO, Gulf States and defense contractors. As reported by Reuters:

Facebook began looking for outside help amid criticism for failing to rein in Russian propaganda ahead of the 2016 presidential elections

With scores of its own cybersecurity professionals and $40 billion in annual revenue in 2017, Facebook might not seem in need of outside help.

It doesnt need outside help, it needs political cover, which is the real driver behind this.

But the lab and Atlantic Council bring geopolitical expertise and allow Facebook to distance itself from sensitive pronouncements. On last weeks call with reporters, Alex Stamos, Facebooks chief security officer, said the company should not be expected to identify or blame specific governments for all the campaig...

A New Mexico judge on Monday agreed to release five suspects arrested on child abuse charges at a New Mexico camp, against the wishes of both the sheriffs department and the FBI, which described the group as heavily armed and considered extremist(s) of the Muslim belief.

Judge Sarah Backus ordered the suspects  Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, 40, Lucas Morton, 40, Jany Leveille, 35, Hujrah Wahhaj, 37, and Subhannah Wahhaj, 35 released on $20,000 bond each Monday evening, reports the Taos County Sheriffs Office. They will be required to wear ankle monitors and maintain weekly contact with their attorneys, and were ordered to cooperate with the New Mexico Children Youth and Families division (CYFD) where the eleven children the sheriff says were being trained to commit school shootings, are being held in protective custody.

Despite authorities finding a dead childs remains on the compound, and an alleged letter sent from one suspect to his brother inviting him to come to New Mexico and die as a martyrJudge Backus ruled that the state failed to meet the burden of showing the suspects were a danger to the community after several hours of testimony.

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

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

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

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

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

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

You do not have to be in tune with anything else, only God, because God is highest resolution to each and every situation. This isn't something tha...

Some Priests Listed in Massive Sexual Abuse Report Are Still in Ministry The Event Chronicle

By Joshua Gill

The bishop of Pittsburgh said Friday that some priests named in a massive sexual abuse report remain in ministry because of unsubstantiated allegations.

Bishop David Zubik clarified that no priest listed in the report against whom allegations of abuse were substantiated are in ministry. Once the report is released, Zubik said that he will meet with congregations whose priests are named in the report to explain why the diocese determined the allegations against them to be unsubstantiated and therefore kept them in ministry. (RELATED: Bishop Of Pittsburgh Says He Will Publicly Out Predator Priests)

There is no priest or deacon in an assignment today against whom there was a substantiated allegation of child sexual abuse, Zubik said, according to The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

The soon to be released grand jury report, which took two years to compile, lists over 300 predator priests found in six dioceses in Pennsylvania. Zubik announced August 4 that he would publicly out predator priests from his diocese named in the report once it is released. His announcement followed similar moves from the bishops of Harrisburg and Erie, who published lists of the priests identified in their dioceses as having perpetrated abuse.

Sigh. Dare we feign surprise? I mean is there any point? Is this soft disclosure of the worst case scenario north of the 49th?

You know, it was only a few years ago that I actually believed Canada was far behind her cousin, the American Woman to the south, in corruption, false flag terrorism and infiltration by the cabal and the central banksters.

Sure the military covered up crashing space craft but I thought pedophilia was our worst problem only in isolated pocketslike Vancouver, the coven capital. I hadnt heard much about it within parliament.

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford was the most embarrassing topic consistently in the news, and his brother Doug currently walking in his shoes seems to be setting a better example.

Yes, PM Stephen Harper was a flagrant cabalist, but I had hope for young Justin as wed heard the new generation of the elite circles were sometimes rebelling and breaking free of the mind control shackles, working with us to dissolve the evil regime.

Since his installment, however, Trudeau has left no doubt he is either deeply in the pockets of the cabal, or a much better actor than we imagined, but the worst thing we knew of was his losing an eyebrow.

It seems, however, that in the not too distant past there may have been some parents demanding, Hey, teacher! Leave our kids alone.  This could very well turn out to be Canadas jarring wake-up call. 

Even if Justin were to be put under house arrest or given a GPS ankle bracelet like John McCain and Hillary Clinton, would it make the front page of the Globe and Mail or qualify as breaking news on the CBC this week? Come on.

Regardless, though, Canada has a great deal of blood on its flag that most residents dont seeand wont until theyre forced to accept it.

Thanks for the heads up, E.  ~ BP

ACLU: Federal Agencies Are Setting Trap to Deport Immigrants Truthdig RSS

BOSTON Federal immigration agencies have launched a coordinated campaign to arrest and deport immigrants seeking to become legal U.S. residents through marriage, according to documents released this week in a class-action lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union.

The documents, which include depositions and correspondence from federal officials, show the extent to which officials for the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services have been coordinating with their counterparts at Immigration and Customs Enforcement to facilitate arrests at citizenship offices in New England.

The ACLU, in its arguments, criticizes the efforts as a deportation trap that violates the constitutional rights of immigrants otherwise following the rules to become legal residents.

The government created this path for them to seek a green card, Matthew Segal, legal director for the ACLU of Massachusetts, said in an interview Tuesday. The government cant create that path and then arrest folks for following that path.

A spokesman for USCIS said the agency doesnt comment on pending litigation, and ICE representatives didnt immediately respond to requests for comment. The two agencies both fall under Department of Homeland Security oversight.

The ACLU lawsuit argues that Homeland Security regulations created under former President Barack Obama allow immigrants with U.S.-citizen spouses to stay in the country while they seek a green card even if theyre already subject to deportation.

That regulation is still the law of the land, Segal said Tuesday. So arresting these folks is not about law and order. These are people with a path to legalization and the government is trying to block that.

The federal government, in seeking to dismiss the lawsuit, argues in part that the federal District Court has no jurisdiction in the matter.

The ACLUs more than 250-page legal brief includes emails between ICE officials outlining how it coordinates arrests with USCIS in New England.

Andrew Graham, a Boston-based ICE officer, said the agency generally receives from USCIS lists of immigrants seeking legal residency who have already been ordered for deportation, had re-entered the country illegally or were considered an egregious criminal alien.

Graham says ICE then works with USCIS to schedule interviews so that ICE agents can be present to make an arrest. He notes ICE prefers to spread out the interviews to ease the workload on its agents and to prevent generating negative media interest from the arrests.

In my opinion, it makes sense for us to arrest aliens with final removal orders as they represent the end of the line in the removal process, Graham wrote in part. (A)t the end of the day we are in the removal business and its our job to locate and arrest them.

The ACLUs legal brief is the latest in the class-action suit it filed earlier this year on behalf of immigrants...

Taliban 'stronger than ever' after taking significant control of strategic Afghan city Signs of the Times

Around 100 Afghan troops were killed in fighting with Taliban for the strategic city of Ghazni. The group is now at its strongest since 2001 and the US 'war on terror' has failed, geopolitical analyst Ali Rizk told RT. For the last four days, the Taliban has been clashing with government forces for control of Ghazni Province and its main city, which is located just 150km from Afghanistan's capital, Kabul. Despite the Afghan troops being supported by US airstrikes and ground forces, events on the battlefield have not gone in their favor. By Monday, the Taliban already had most of the city in its grasp, with the military only holding government buildings and police headquarters, which have been under constant attack, according to an Afghan general.

Scientists find new properties of water Signs of the Times

A team of scientists has uncovered new molecular properties of water-a discovery of a phenomenon that had previously gone unnoticed. Liquid water is known to be an excellent transporter of its own autoionization products; that is, the charged species obtained when a water molecule (H2O) is split into protons (H+) and hydroxide ions (OH). This remarkable property of water makes it a critical component in emerging electrochemical energy production and storage technologies such as fuel cells; indeed, life itself would not be possible if water did not possess this characteristic. Water is known to consist an intricate network of weak, directional interactions known as hydrogen bonds. For nearly a century, it was thought that the mechanisms by which water transports the H+ and OH ions were mirror images of each other - identical in all ways except for directions of the hydrogen bonds involved in the process. Current state-of-the-art theoretical models and computer simulations, however, predicted a fundamental asymmetry in these mechanisms. If correct, this asymmetry is something that could be exploited in different applications by tailoring a system to favor one ion over the other. Experimental proof of the theoretical prediction has remained elusive because of the difficulty in directly observing the two ionic species. Different experiments have only provided glimpses of the predicted asymmetry.

Corbyn's 'anti-Semite' crisis continues as MSM attacks him for 'terrorist wreath laying' Signs of the Times

The latest anti-Semitism story to hit Labour's Jeremy Corbyn has polarised debate. His critics want him to resign immediately, while supporters are rushing to his defence, denying the accusations and crying 'fake news.' Photographs, taken in 2014 and published by the Daily Mail on August 11, show Corbyn holding a wreath at a service in Tunisia close to the graves of the Black September terrorists, who were implicated in the Munich attacks, in which 11 Israeli athletes were killed in 1972. The original story is headlined "Corbyn's wreath at Munich terrorists' graves," goes on to accuse the Labour leader of attending a "tribute event for Palestine 'martyrs' including plotters behind 1972 slaughter of Israeli Olympic athletes."

Google Maps Has Been Tracking Your Every Move, And Theres A Website To Prove It Awareness Act

With all of the privacy concerns that have been raised lately, this probably comes as no surprise. However, surprising or not, it needs to be known by the public.

You would assume when it comes to your settings that you would already turned off anything that would potentially allow you to be tracked, right? Well, you might not have. Bloomberg recently posted on this topic and went over a report by the Associated Press that showed our locations are for the most part still being stored even if we have adjusted our settings to turn the features off.

Sure, you might have turned off the potential for them to share your location with other applications but even when you pause your location history Google Maps could still be grabbing your information and storing it each and every time you even open the app. It is also important to note that this report was confirmed by researchers at Princeton University.

Bloomberg reported as follows:

Googles official message is to promote user autonomy when it comes to deciding what information to share: You can turn off Location History at any time. With Location History off, the places you go are no longer stored, according to the companys privacy page. But the AP said that isnt true. Even pausing the Location History, some Google apps automatically store time-stamped location data without permission, the AP found.

Location History is a Google product that is entirely opt-in, and users have the controls to edit, delete, or turn it off at any time, the company said in a statement to Bloomberg. As the story notes, we make sure Location History users know that when they disable the product, we continue to use location to improve the Google experience when they do things like performing a Google search or use Google for driving directions.

It is slightly terrifying that all of the things we thought would be outrageous to happen in the future are happening now. When smartphones first began gaining popularity many said that they would probably be used as a tracking means in the future and were reluctant to make the switch, and if you fast forward to the present, it seems that is now our reality. Big corporations know our every move and ads are being designed for us down to even the smallest detail.

Auroras discovered around brown dwarfs Signs of the Times

Magnetic fields are common in space yet their origin is poorly understood. In stars, they generate spots and flares; in planets, they can create amazing auroral displays. Now, a team of astronomers has detected surprisingly strong magnetic fields in multiple brown dwarfs, failed stars that are too big to be planets but too small to ignite hydrogen fusion in their cores. The detections carried an even bigger surprise: unexpected auroral activity on a "rogue planet" that wanders the cosmos alone. Melodie Kao (Arizona State University) and colleagues used the National Science Foundation's Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array to detect high-frequency radio emissions from four nearby brown dwarfs, with masses between 12 and 30 times the mass of Jupiter. Their magnetic fields are hundreds to thousands of times stronger than those around the Sun and power brilliant, radio-emitting aurorae similar to the Northern Lights on Earth. The results appear in the Astrophysical Journal Supplement Series (free preprint). Among the brown dwarfs under study is SIMP0136, an object with a mass just below 13 times the mass of Jupiter - just below the dividing line that separates planets from brown dwarfs. Floating in interstellar space 20 light-years away, this planet is isolated - a "rogue planet." On Earth, brilliant aurorae appear around the North and South Poles, where charged particles from the Sun stream in along Earth's magnetic field and crash into the upper atmosphere. A similar mechanism works at Jupiter, where the particles come from Jupiter's moons rather than the Sun. But unlike Earth and Jupiter, SIMP0136 is on its own - it either formed by itself or was flung out of another solar system. Either way, it doesn't have a parent star, so its aurorae can't come from interactions with a stellar wind. Perhaps the planet hosts a moon of its own - but it's too soon to come to that conclusion. More observations are needed to confirm the origin of the radio emissions.

Horrifying UN Report Details Widespread Child Rape by High-Level UN Employees The Event Chronicle

A deeply disturbing report by the United Nations details rampant sexual exploitation of children by UN officials across the globe.

By Matt Agorist

A deeply disturbing report has finally been released by the United Nations detailing the rampant sexual exploitation of children by UN employees that is widespread, throughout multiple countries.

While pieces of the report were released previously, the full report, detailing the scope and horrifying nature of the abuse was only just released in July.

As Disobedient Media points out in a scathing report,

Aid work is not a vehicle of charity, but is, in a very real sense, a cover for atrocity. It is a weapon, a blunt instrument of power that is wielded to exploit the most vulnerable populations in crisis around the world. We can now state that sentiment as fact, not opinion.

The report reads like a nightmare and states in part:

Agency workers from local and international NGOs as well as UN agencies are among the prime sexual exploiters of refugee children often using the very humanitarian assistance and services intended to benefit refugees as a tool of exploitation. Male national staff were reported to trade humanitarian commodities and services, including medication, oil, bulgur wheat, plastic sheeting, education courses, skills-training, school supplies etc., in exchange for sex with girls under 18. The practice appeared particularly pronounced in locations with significant and established aid programs.

British Conservatives knew about fire hazards years before Grenfell, did nothing Dear Kitty. Some blog

This 2 August 2018 video from Britain is called Government told in 2014 that Grenfell-style cladding was highly dangerous.

By Tom Pearce in Britain:

UK government warned of dangers of flammable cladding three years before Grenfell fire

14 August 2018

As [early] as 2014, the UK government was warned of the risks of using combustible aluminum composite material (ACM) cladding on buildings and did nothing to stop its use or warn the population.

The details emerged just as the Grenfell fire inquiry broke for its summer recess. It was because Grenfell Tower was surrounded by highly flammable cladding that a small fire on the fourth floor rapidly became an inferno that consumed the entire block on June 14 last year, claiming 72 lives.

Inside Housing, the weekly trade publication, revealed minutes of a meeting of the fire group of the Center for Window and Cladding Technology (CWCT) on July 2, 2014. Inside Housing was able to access the minutes through a Freedom of Information request.

The meeting, held two years before Grenfell tower was covered in flammable ACM, was called after the CWCT received inquiries about the fire safety and performance of facades (cladding) due to the fact that there had been...

The Crazy Moment a Panhandler Gets up out of His Wheelchair and Walks to His Car After Sitting Outside a Walmart Begging for Money The Daily Sheeple

An Idaho resident is warning others about giving money to two panhandlers in the Post Falls area after he saw one of them get up out of his wheelchair and walk to his car following a days work of begging for change.

Tim Stephens said in a Facebook post that he had stopped a Walmart in the area when he saw a man with an eye patch sitting in a wheelchair near the exit asking people for money. He said the man was holding a sign that read: USMC (United States Marine Corp) thanks and God bless.

Stephens said after he left the store he pulled into a parking lot across the street so his grandchildren could eat their food. As he was parked, he said a white car pulled into a space a few spots down from him.

Boost Your Weight Loss With This Extremely Simple Weight Loss Potion Awareness Act

The weight loss industry in the United States is serious business, driven by a society struggling with obesity at an alarming rate. With diet pills, meal replacement shakes, weight loss programs and one-on-one coaching, the U.S. weight loss market is estimated to be worth $66 billion and growing, but is there an easier solution?

One well-known online persona, Stargirl the Practical Witch, took to YouTube to introduce just that, a unique approach to weight loss for those that may be running out of ideas. Sure, the idea of witchcraft and magic may not resonate with everyone. However, if you have been trying everything else and still feel like your efforts are falling short, what do you have to lose?

Dont be fooled, Stargirl is far from alone! Wicca, a witch-craft based religion, is growing in popularity at a surprising rate in the United States. In fact, a study out of the City University of New York discovered that Wicca is the fastest-growing religion in the country. Why dont we hear more about it? Faced with judgment and misunderstanding, most practicing Wiccans choose to keep their religious life quiet. They may be your neighbors, friends or co-workers, and you dont even know it!

Wiccan spells are based on the idea of energy, manipulating it to work in the way that the witch desires. For this reason, Stargirl starts her video warning her viewers that in order for this spell to work they must first release all negative energy. Spells are directed energy into a focused intention, she explains. And guess what? Thoughts are energy. Words are energy. So, if youre thinking negative things about yourself, like I have a slow metabolism or its hard for me to lose weight, those thoughts will cancel out your spell.

She also recommends that those people who choose to use the spell should combine it with healthy eating and exercise. Yes, you can use this spell on its own without diet and exercise and it will be effective, she states. However, I strongly advise against it because ultimately you want to be healthy and happy and skinny, not just skinny.

So how does it work? Stargirl explains that each time you are thirsty and grab a bottle of water, take a moment to wrap your hands around the bottle and say, I have a fast metabolism. It is really hard for me to gain weight. I only eat what I need to be healthy and survive. I only crave healthy foods. I get full very easily. I have a super fast metabolism and am naturally rail thin.  These affirmations must be said in present tens...

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

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

Ben Carson to Gut Anti-Segregation Rule in New Attack on Fair Housing Act Truthdig RSS

With much of the corporate medias attention focused on Tuesday on President Donald Trumps latest reported racist remarks, the presidents Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) made its latest move away from its core mission of ensuring all Americans of all races have access to fair housing.

HUD Secretary Ben Carson announced late Monday that he was moving to roll back the Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing rule (AFFH), a 2015 regulation the Obama administration passed to ensure that local governments that receive federal funding combat racial segregation in housing. The rule was introduced with the intent of making sure communities were observing the 1968 Fair Housing Act, which banned housing discrimination based on race.

Under AFFH, well-off communities that accept federal grants have been pushed to introduce affordable housing to de-concentrate poverty.

Carson has derided the rule as social engineering and claimed on Monday that the rule was suffocating investment in distressed neighborhoods.

HUD has argued that the benefits of allowing low-income families to move out of impoverished neighborhoods are likely limited to certain age and demographic groups, a theory rejected by Lawrence Katz, an economics professor at Harvard and author of a landmark study on the issue.

Overall, the research shows that deconcentrating poverty is likely to greatly improve the health and well-being of low-income families and to have long-run economic and educational benefits for the children of low-income families, Katz told Slate.

Without the AFFH in place, communities will be free to shut low-income families out of middle-class areas.

Youre going back to communities willfully blinding themselves to patt...

Strzok fired by FBI but still works for the CIA The Event Chronicle

Peter Strzoks recent departure from the FBI is meaningless and is just part of the larger stage show as Strzok remains employed by the CIA

By Shepard Ambellas

FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok was fired by the bureau on Monday over a series of controversial anti-Trump text messages which Peter Strzok and his former lover Lisa Page had exchanged during the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

However, the press has failed to report that Strzok was an agent for both the FBI and CIA at the same time.

Thats right, not only was Strzok employed by the FBI until his abrupt public departure from the bureau on Monday, Strzok has been sheep-dipped by the CIA where he currently remains employed to this day. (i.e. Strzoks termination from the FBI on Monday was nothing more than a dog and pony show as Strzok remains an integral member of the deep state)

As I originally reported in mid-July, a sheep-dipped Peter Strzok worked for both the FBI and CIA at the time.

Hello! People! This is big!

Both the FBI and CIA have played the American people for fools by not disclosing the fact that Peter Strzok is a double agent of the U.S. government and has been sheep-dipped by the CIA.

A sheep-dipped Peter Strzok has been covertly operating as the Section Chief of the Central Intelligence Agencys Counterespionage Group during his secret 24 year tenure with the agency while masquerading as Deputy Assistant Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigations Counterintelligence Division where he was in charge of investigating Hillary Clintons use of a personal email server along with the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections.

The bombshell information published first on BrassBalls.blog reveals that the joint CIA/FBI position was created by Congress in 1996 which allowed Strzok to hold both posts.

How feminists ruin the lives and the futures of boys Signs of the Times

The amount of damage that modern day social justice warriors and feminists are causing today is astonishing. It shouldn't surprise any of us to see the kind of damage that these people would cause in the modern world. There was an article in the New York Times not too long ago called "What Feminists Can Do For Boys." I will tell any of you who have not wasted your time reading the New York Times article the words of feminists author Jessica Valenti are barely worthy of lining your bird cage with. Right underneath her name on the New York Times article you can see that she is the author of six books on feminism. Seeing that she has written six books on the topic of feminism and I never know when I'll need some extra toilet paper they might be a good investment, or perhaps I'll just pull out a hundred dollar bill and use a match to light it on fire. I can only hope that not all feminists are as bad as the writer of the article, because if they are then someone really needs to encourage them to stop and think before they speak. In her article she tries to present the argument that feminists can help boys become good men, but lets be completely honest. Feminism is the cause of a lot of the problems that men have to deal with today. Feminists don't want to help boys become men. They want to dilute and weaken the next generation of men so that they can completely send everything that is considered traditional masculinity into a state of extinction. A large number of the modern feminists have declare war on men as much as social justice warriors have declared war on the statues and everything else that represents white history and culture.

Trumps War on Regulation Is Just Another Form of Trickle-Down Economics Truthdig RSS

When Trumps not blaming foreigners for everything that ails America, hes blaming regulations.

Last week he even blamed regulations for the wildfires now ravaging California. Theyre made so much worse, he tweeted, by the bad environmental laws which arent allowing massive amount[s] of readily available water to be properly utilized.

I have news for Trump. Californias tough environmental laws are among Americas (and the worlds) last bulwarks against climate change. And its climate change not regulation thats reaping havoc across California as well as much of the rest of the world.

Oh, and Californians are using water very carefully.

Yet Trump is pushing in the opposite direction. Hes now proposing to let cars pollute more and to strip California of its right to set higher air-quality rules.

Its not just the environment. Trump is also gutting regulations that protect consumers, workers, investors, students, and children.

The Trump regime is now contemplating a loophole through which companies can apply to use asbestos a known carcinogen banned by most developed countries in making adhesives, roofing material, floor tile, and other products.

Whats the justification for all of this? The Administrations agenda of deregulation is unleashing the  true potential of American businesses, trumpets Trumps Council of Economic Advisors in its 2018 economic report.

Translated: Cutting regulations means more corporate profits. More profits satisfies Trumps donor class.

Dont get me wrong. Some regulations should be eliminated because theyre just too costly relative to the protections they provide.

But many regulations protect you and me from being harmed, fleeced, shafted, injured, or sickened by corporate products and services. And theyre worth it.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Joe Stacking Takes Off With 2 Incidents In Recent Days Qntra

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

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

White Hats Auxiliary: Fact Check #146 The Event Chronicle

Greetings,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Tyrannosaur family various species, video Dear Kitty. Some blog

This video says about itself:

Tyrannosaur family species comparison

13 August 2018

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

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

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

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

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

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

So enjoy this video on Tyrannosaurus family species comparison.

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

By Joseph P. Farrell

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

By True Pundit

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

He complained that the outlet didn't redact his name from the dossier when they published it, on January 10, 2017, and that the next-to-last paragraph of the document falsely identified him and two companies as participating in a plot to use "botnet and porn traffic" to infect computers run by Democratic Party leadership.

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

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

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

 

Nazis and Hand-Picked Leaders in Ukraine, 2014

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

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

 

Election Interference in Venezuela, 2018

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

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

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

Democrats to FCC chair Ajit Pai: Why did you lie to us? Fast Company

The biggest thing Republican FCC chair (and ex-Verizon attorney) Ajit Pai has done since being appointed by President Trump is roll back network neutrality protections. He proposed a new rule doing just that in 2017, and got it passed by the commission by the end of the year.

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

By Dannielle Blumenthal, PhD

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

Thats significant.

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

Lets follow the trail

By The Patriot Mind

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

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

A Grand Jury had been empanelled.

Governments from around the world had donated to the Charity.

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

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

Guess who took over this investigation in 2002?

Bet you cant guess.

None other than James Comey.

Now, thats interesting, isnt it?

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

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

Now, thats interesting, isnt it?

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

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

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

Now, thats interesting, isnt it?

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

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

What do all four casting characters have in common?

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

Now thats just a coincidence, right?

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

Lets fast forward to 2009

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

By Chuck Ross

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

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

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

RELATED: New Mexico compound boy died during ritual ceremony

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 PBS NewsHour summary, July 2, 2018

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

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

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

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

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

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

By Larry White

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

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


Goldmoney  Precious metals investing and payment system

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

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

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

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



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

Beyond The DNC Leaks, Hacks, and Treason MintPress News

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

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

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

Heres whats different in the information Ive compiled.

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

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

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

The real crime of the DNC hack wasnt the hack.

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

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

Facebook Exec Threatens News Outlets in Private Meeting Truthdig RSS

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

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

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

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

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

As Common Dreams reported in July, progressives fears were partly confirmed after F...

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Background

According to Wikipedia:

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

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

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

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

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

Hothouse Earth Dissident Voice

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

By Larry White

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

. . . . .

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

. . . . . 

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

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

Isaac Davis Staff Writer
Waking Times

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

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

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

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

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

Coincidence?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Jason Williams also saw a car moving at high speed.

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

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

Puerto Rico Teachers Rally to Save Schools

Teachers and community members surrounded the Capitol Building in San Juan to symbolize a Shield To Protect Public Education in Puerto Rico. The latest round of proposed school closures would bring the total to 450 in one year, with a devastating impact on families, as the island works to recover from Hurricanes Irma and Maria.

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

14 August 2018

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

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

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

Market Talk- August 14, 2018 Armstrong Economics

It was good to see a healthy 2.28% bounce in the Nikkei today, especially after yesterdays 2% decline. Unfortunately, some of this was at the expense of the currency as the Yen lost 0.5% back to a 111 handle. The currency drop helped exporters recover some of yesterdays losses, but there is still plenty of room to go just yet. Summer trading is distorting much of this play, so worth keeping an eye on a cross-section of core and emerging market currencies to understand if is USD strength or country specific. ASX also recovered 0.75% today helped by exporters and commodities. China closed down with losses for both the Hang Seng -0.6% and Shanghai -0.17%, with many losses being generated from Hong Kongs tech sector. SENSEX traded well for much of the day and even saw s small recovery in the INR successfully rejecting the 70 handle for now anyway! India will be closed Wednesday for independence day.

European indices spent much of the day watching Turkey and its markets. The initial confidence from Asia, soon wore-off as Turkey tested the days lows and Europe failed to trade on strong German data. Yes, the Lira recovered well (+8%), but there is plenty of talk that intervention and short-covering is only temporary. There were rumours also that Turkey is seeking help from its neighbours, but these went unqualified. In late US trading the talk is that the demand for dollars grows by the day and that certainly looked the case as the Euro, GBP and Yen are all trading on the days lows. There is even talk that some countries have been liquidating gold to restock US Dollar supplies. UK saw its lowest unemployment number in 40 years, but the early Sterling rally was soon turned on the persistent USD bid.

Core US markets traded from strength to strength today as sentiment appeared to recover and cash is put to work. There has been and still is, considerable monies sitting on the side-lines waiting for confidence to be gained. As core indices return to record highs, this is again starting to take the crown of the most hated bull market yet again! Whilst many call for a correction we again see new highs being achieved. This weeks and month end numbers will be closely watched even as summer trading volumes misleads ma...

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hes a passionate advocate of natural law, a committed de-occultist deconstructing the spells of slavery, and the truth-telling torcher of sacred cows long time coming, Mark Passio.

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

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

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

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

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

Facebook Suspends teleSUR English Without Explanation, Again MintPress News

For the second time this year, Facebook has suspended teleSUR Englishs page, claiming the left-leaning Latin American news network violated the social media platforms terms of service without any further explanationa move that provoked outrage and concern among journalists, free speech advocates, and Big Tech critics.

In a short article posted on teleSURs website on Monday, the regional news networkwhich is based in Venezuela but also has received funding from Argentina, Bolivia, Cuba, Ecuador, and Nicaraguaexplained:

teleSUR Englishs page has been removed from Facebook for the second time this year without any specific reason being provided. It should be noted that the first time this occurred back in January 2018, Facebook did NOT provide any explanation in spite of our best efforts to understand their rationale. This is an alarming development in light of the recent shutting down of pages that dont fit a mainstream narrative.

According to the outlet, the only communication teleSUR has received from Facebook was the following message:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

It has become way too easy to lockdown this nation.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

By Vicki Batts

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

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

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

Hemp could revolutionize American farming industry

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

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

Hemp can a...

Facebook bans 196 pages in Brazil, attempting to rein in abuse and disinformation The Fifth Column

 

(GV) On July 25, 2018, Facebook banned 196 pages and 87 profiles based in Brazil, several of which were associated with the conservative group Movimento Brasil Livre (Free Brazil Movement, or MBL), which has played a pivotal role in the rise of online conservatism in Brazil. The pages had a combined total of 500,000 followers.

Shortly thereafter, MBL published a note calling the removals arbitrary and accusing Facebook of exercising a political bias against right-wing leaders and institutions.

The move comes as Facebook continues to face condemnation and threats of regulatory restrictions in the US, India and the EU, where allegations of disinformation and political agendas promoted by fake accounts reached a tipping point in early 2018. Just last week, the company removed multiple pages associated with the right-wing conspiracy theorist website InfoWars from its platform, reasoning that the website disseminates false information and encourages hate speech, both of which stand in violation of Facebooks policies. Major platforms including Apple and YouTube took similar measures on the same day, citing a similar rationale.

This is not the first time MBL has found itself at odds with Facebooks policies. In May, Facebook partnered with two fact-checking agencies in Brazil, Aos Fatos and Agncia Lupa, both part of International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN). Facebooks move was met with a campaign by MBL, who called the move an attack on freedom of expression. They proceeded to discredit the agencies reputations and sharing personal posts and data off their staff in an effort to prove their leftist bias.

In an official statement following the removals in Brazil, Facebook claimed the decision to delete the accounts came after a rigorous investigation and that the pages and profiles were part of a coordinated network that hid under the use of fake accounts and kept from the people the true nature and origin of...

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

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

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

By Brandon Turbeville

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

Dr. Arison concluded:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Scarlet macaw DNA points to ancient breeding operation in Southwest

August 13, 2018

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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


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


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


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

The American destiny

The creative force at the dawn of a new future


By Jon Rappoport

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

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

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

Therefore, reality is very elastic and changeable.

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

The creative IS the spiritual.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Political Cartoon Instagram Doesnt Want You to See (Update) Truthdig RSS

Update: The cartoon has since been restored, and a representative for Instagram maintains that it was removed in error. The original post can be found below.

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

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

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

As the newspaper industry has declined, so too has the political cartoon, despite offering a vital check on the power of state and federal officials. Observes Dwayne Booth, better known as Mr. Fish, A cartoonist is there to ridicule assumptions in service of either humor or dissent, something that resonates with the human heart, the heart being typically contemptuous of the cold rigidity of piety and obedience to authority.

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

By Brent Swancer

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

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

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

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

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

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

Trump: Military Might More Important Than Jobs

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

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

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

Grassland birds this year, report Dear Kitty. Some blog

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

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

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

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

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

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

What Really Happens to Nicaragua, Venezuela and Ecuador MintPress News

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Exotic states of matter made in space The Event Chronicle

By Amira Val Baker

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

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

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

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

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

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


NASA Created a Rare, Exotic State of Matter in Space

By Rafi Letzter

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

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

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

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

INTRODUCTION

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

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

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

 

STARTING POINT

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

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

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

Only the weak hit the fly with a hammer.

Bangambiki Habyarimana

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

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

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

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

By The Daily Galaxy

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

8 Signs Of A True Soul Friend TruthTheory

by  via LonerWolf

A true friend is one soul in two bodies.  Aristotle

What do you define as a friend?

Take a moment to think about your answer.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

By Matt Williams

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

1.) The expansion of imperial war undermines freedom:

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

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

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

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

By Lori Alton

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

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

Holy basil is the ultimate adaptogen for every day use

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

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

Holy basil works on cellular and molecular levels to fight disease

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

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

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

Research confirm the stress-relieving effects of holy basil

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

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

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

By Lorraine Chow

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

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

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

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

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

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


As AlterNet reported, plastic No. 3used in plumbing pipes, clear food packaging, shrink wrap and moreco...

'Misogyny, homophobia & racism' cost Canadian mosque its charitable status Signs of the Times

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

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

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