Reusable plastic shopping bags are actually making the problem worse, not better

Over the past few years, reusable plastic shopping bags began showing up in grocery stores in many parts of the world. They are sturdier than the flimsy plastic bags that have become a symbol of the global movement against disposable plastics, and so can be used many times, lending to their marketing as the ethical choice for the environmentally conscious shopper.

The Story of Robert Burns and Auld Lang Syne

In 1788 Robert Burns sent the poem 'Auld Lang Syne' to the Scots Musical Museum, indicating that it was an ancient song but that he'd been the first to record it on paper. The phrase 'auld lang syne' roughly translates as 'for old times' sake', and the song is all about preserving old friendships and looking back over the events of the year.

John Pemberton, Creator of Coca Cola: Facts & Stories You Didn't Know

There are few products as American as Coca-Cola. The soft drink brand is so deeply ingrained in American culture that it's hard to imagine a time before its existence, but it's only been a little over 130 years since a pharmacist in Atlanta named John Pemberton created his secret formula. He was actually trying to produce a medicinal tonic, but while he failed at developing the next greatest wonder drug, Pemberton did make a crisp, delicious beverage. Here is the story of John Pemberton, Coca-Cola, and good, old American ingenuity.

Jeremy Clarkson mocks ‘idiot’ Greta Thunberg, but the ‘snowflakes’ who want him canceled are out of touch with reality

Clarkson is no less conciliatory, calling the interviewers “snowflakes,” and Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg a “stupid idiot” and a “weird Swede with a bad temper.”

Rather than deny climate change, Clarkson suggested that the legions of Thunberg-inspired ‘school strikers’ should stay in the classroom and pay attention to their science lessons, rather than hopping on a “carbon fibre yacht” and going to “shout at Donald Trump.”

Over 10,000 evacuated in Turin, Italy over British bomb dropped during WWII

A discovery of a 500-pound British WWII bomb prompted an urgent evacuation of thousands of people from the historic center of the Italian northern city of Turin, while tens of thousands more were told to stay put.

All residents living in the ‘red zone’ around Turin’s Nizza Street where the bomb was found were told to leave their homes and evacuate the area between 7am and 4pm (local time). Another 50,000 were asked to either leave their homes in advance or stay inside for the entire period while the bomb was defused.

Red Flag Laws, a State of Nature and the Right to Shoot Back

White-bread Americans are in for a rude awakening as they find themselves at the end of a barrel and being told to disarm under the guise of “Red Flag” gun confiscation laws.

The enforcement of Red Flag gun confiscation laws that are currently in place in 14 states now, will statistically impact everyone. In upcoming years as confrontations with law enforcement grows, everyone reading this article will know people impacted by gun confiscation and gun confrontations.

Dr. Chuck Baldwin accurately described these laws recently in a column entitled An Open Letter To Our Legislators, Judges And Lawmen, an article I beg everyone to pass along, especially to their law enforcement friends. He writes,

UN Study Finds World's Highest Rate Of Child Detention... Under Obama

Authored by Mike Shedlock via MishTalk,

A UN study shows the “U.S. has world’s highest rate of children in detention".

That was under the Obama administration.

Unacceptable Headline
Of course, such a headline is politically unacceptable.

Thus, the UN Withdrew the Study.

A Nov. 18 story headlined “U.S. has world’s highest rate of children in detention -U.N. study” is withdrawn.

The United Nations issued a statement on Nov. 19 saying the number was not current but was for the year 2015. No replacement story will be issued.

Get to know the CIA’s “gentle-hearted torturer” who made the SF Peninsula his LSD testing ground Charles Russo

Met Kesey at a Merry Prankster reunion Acid Test. He was passing out window pane LSD at the door from a little paper bag. Jerry Garcia's wife Carolyn Adams was the quality control tester at Stanford for the various drugs the CIA was handing out. Tim Leary was also part of MK-ULTRA.

Gottlieb was also the driving force behind the CIA’s obsession with the hallucinogenic substance LSD. Here on the SF Peninsula, you may have caught snippets of that history as it ties back to the experiences of One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest author Ken Kesey or Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter (who passed away earlier this week). Both young men were unwitting (though that’s not to say unenthusiastic) volunteers for CIA-led LSD experiments at places like the Menlo Park VA and Stanford University.

Palestinians in Gaza bury another young victim of Israel’s brutality

Palestinians in the Gaza Strip held a funeral for 16-year-old Fahd al-Astal, who was shot dead by Israeli snipers on Friday.

During the procession? mourners roamed the streets shouting slogans against the Israeli regime. A mixture of grief and anger was the mood among Gazans over Israel’s killing of a young protester.

Fahd al-Astal was taking part in a peaceful demonstration marking International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People in the east of the southern Gaza Strip town of Khan Younes. Fahd‘s distraught family says the teenager was an active supporter of the Palestinian cause.

Palestinians organized the Great March of Return to call for the legitimate right of Palestinian refugees to return to the historic land of Palestine, as enshrined in United Nations Resolution 194, and the lifting of the illegal blockade. Their peaceful action was met with excessive and lethal of force by the Israeli regime.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, the maiming and killing of Palestinian kids is an absolute constant for the IDF, under orders from Israel's government.

Iran in Crosshairs: Why Some EU States Opt to Distance Themselves From US Op in Strait of Hormuz

The main reasons why US allies are declining the invitation to join the US-led naval coalition and are choosing to distance themselves from the super-power are because they do not want to be dragged into a military confrontation between Washington and Tehran, some such as Germany prefer diplomacy, while others such as Japan want to preserve economic and political relations with Iran. In France’s case they still hold out hope for saving the JCPOA [Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action]," says Sarah Abed, and independent journalist and analyst.
In addition, the Trump administration unilaterally withdrew from the Iran nuclear deal a year ago leaving Europe's major states, the signatories to the accords, struggling with the consequences of Washington's move.

"A concern that European nations have is that Washington will exploit the IMSC to carry out their sanctions campaign by interfering with legitimate Iranian commercial shipping vessel missions," he says.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Some of Europe's concern over this is definitely based on the trajectory of current US foreign policy against Iran, and they are correct in their assessment.

Any attempts at interdiction of Iranian or Iranian-flagged vessels will be tantamount to a declaration of war, by the US government against Iran.

Therefore, I would most politely remind the US government what was said at a conference involving both Iranian and Russian officials" :

Pentagon ‘Pretending’ to Fight Daesh in New Op to Justify US’ Continued Syria Occupation

With this renewed effort to combat Daesh forces in Syria, it’s understandable that some observers are scratching their heads, considering the fact that the commander-in-chief has declared ad nauseum that those same Daesh forces have been eliminated over the past year.

Despite US President Donald Trump’s repeated declarations of victory over Daesh, the US has - once again - announced a resumption in operations against the group. While the tug-of-war between the commander-in-chief and the Pentagon is apparent, one expert points out that there is one thing both parties can agree on: oil.

In a Saturday press conference, US Air Force Maj. Gen. Eric Hill announced that, following operations on November 22, a US-led coalition was able to not only capture a “significant amount” of small arms, ammunition and explosives, but also detained over a dozen Daesh soldiers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As a creation of the US government, which funded/trained/armed Daesh (read: Isis), Daesh/ISIS is being used wherever the US government believes it needs a "distraction"; the current looting of Syrian oil creates a marvelous need for some consistent "misdirection".

'Surprise for the Enemy': Iran Launches Mass Production of Jask Cruise Missiles

Along with missile manufacturing, the country's Navy has also disclosed five other military projects it is currently involved in, including the sea-launched Pelikan drone, the Sadaf-2 naval mine, the Soren positioning system, the Balaban guided bomb, and the Loqman training vessel.

The Iranian Navy has initiated the mass production of submarine-launched Jask cruise missiles, the chief of the naval warfare service Rear Admiral Hossein Khanzadi said on Saturday.

According to Khanzadi the domestically-developed missile will be fitted onto all of Iran's submarines, adding that the current range of the projectile will be significantly improved further on, allowing it to hit targets across long distances.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looking at the hostility bubbling over from Israel and the US government against it, can one actually blame Iran for stepping up their weaponry program?!?

The short answer is, HELL, NO.

Poisoner in Chief': Scientist Behind CIA’s Disturbing Mind-Altering Techniques

I’m still in shock", writer Stephen Kinzer says of what he learned about the horrid experiments conducted by a US government scientist that few know by name – Sidney Gottlieb.

His is a story about Gottlieb’s 22-year career, as the chemist continuously ran mind-control projects that aimed to assist the US in its fight against international communism from the 1950s to the 1970s.

“The investigation of drug effects on ego control and volitional activities, i.e., can willfully suppressed information be elicited through drugs affecting higher nervous systems? If so, which agents are better for this purpose?” the author cited a CIA memo on the project subsequently called Artichoke.

Kinzer writes that in the 50s and 60s, Gottlieb “directed the application of unknowable quantities and varieties of drugs into” hordes of people as he sought the most suitable conscience-altering recipe to effectively mold subjects’ thoughts and behaviours.

Stealthy Doses

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to hope that this line of discovery has been stopped; but just as with torture, either done under the edict of the US government, or signed off on by the edict of the US government, it is very difficult to say, with any certainty, that these practices have been stopped.

US Primes NATO To Confront Russia, China

Authored by M.K.Bhadrakumar via The Indian Punchline blog,

The December 3-4 summit of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) in London resembles a family reunion after the acrimony over the issue of military spending by America’s European allies.

The trend is up for defence spending across European Allies and Canada. Over $100 billion is expected to be added to the member states’ defence budgets by end-2020.

More importantly, the trend at the NATO foreign ministers’ meeting at Brussels on November 19-20, in the run-up to the London summit, showed that despite growing differences within the alliance, member states closed ranks around three priority items in the US global agenda — escalation of the aggressive policy toward Russia, militarisation of space and countering China’s rise.

The NATO will follow Washington’s lead to establish a space command by officially regarding space as “a new operational domain”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My big question here, other than the obvious tweaking of resources and NATO's readiness for war against China and Russia, is this; Will NATO do any better in space than it has done on earth?!?

Unfortunately, the short answer here, is no.

US Enraged After 6 More EU Nations Join INSTEX To Bypass Iran Sanctions

On Friday six European countries issued a bombshell joint statement declaring their intent to join INSTEX, or the Instrument in Support of Trade Exchanges, a European special-purpose vehicle serving as a 'SWIFT alternative' to bypass US sanctions on Iran.

Finland, Belgium, Denmark, Netherlands, Norway, and Sweden released a joint statement asserting it's of "the utmost importance to the preservation and full implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPoA) on Iran’s nuclear program by all parties involved."

"In light of the continuous European support for the agreement and the ongoing efforts to implement the economic part of it and to facilitate legitimate trade between Europe and Iran, we are now in the process of becoming shareholders of the Instrument in Support of Trade Exchanges (Instex) subject to completion of national procedures," the statement reads.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That none of President Trump's people saw this coming, or saw it, but didn't let President Trump know it could very probably be a European response to Iran not being able to use SWIFT, demonstrates a catastrophic failure of imagination.

And I am sorry, but the US pulling out of the P5+1 treaty, was one of the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid things the US government could have done, particularly because it was done at the behest of both Israeli Premier (at the moment) Bibi Netanyahu and Trump Bankroller, Sheldon Adelson.

I would like to hope for some modicum of adult response by the White House to this move by Finland, Belgium, Denmark, Netherlands, Norway, and Sweden; but if Richard Grenell is saying "Terrible timing - why fund the Iranian regime while its killing the Iranian people and shutting off the internet? You should be standing for human rights not funding the abusers.", I doubt that we will see any improvement in US/Iranian relations for a very long time, if ever.

That the US government doesn't see itself as the culprit here, demonstrates a terrible disconnect from global realities. I have to wonder what President Trump's people are going to conjure up to "punish" those European countries which are now going with INSTEX, rather than stay with "SWIFT"?!?

India Test Fires Nuke-Capable Missile Amid "Israeli Model" For Kashmir Controversy

Following a major row over controversial comments from a senior Indian diplomat who in a recent televised speech called for the adoption of the "Israeli model" in Indian-administered Kashmir, New Delhi has added fresh fuel to the fire by another successful test launch of an intermediate-range ballistic missile, the Agni-III, on Saturday. This comes after a series prior short-range nuke capable missile tests over the past two weeks.

It was the first night trial of the nuclear capable Agni-III surface-to-surface ballistic missile, fired from an island off India's east coast into the Bengal Sea. Indian defense sources have touted that the nuke-capable ballistic missile possesses a range of over 1,862 miles, and has successfully hit its targets in the latest tests.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What the Indian diplomat stated, in a private gathering gone viral, was that Israeli-like apartheid should become the rule of law in Kashmir, where Muslim Kashmiris would only be granted what would be tantamount to an second, or third-class citizenship.

It is quite obvious that the person uttering those words, has never been to Gaza; East Jerusalem, or the West bank.

I would like to hope that some adults in the Bowels of Power in New Dehli; DC; Moscow; Beijing; will talk India and Pakistan about cooling down, and the creation of confidence-building measures between these two nuclear-armed countries. Otherwise, we may well be looking at World War III.

During this weekend, India and the US concluded two defense pacts;

And back in May, Pakistan signed a Memorandum of Agreements defense pact with Russia: Russia's looming arms sales to Palistan sets up a dangerous game

We need to understand that prior to World War I, alliances were formed to create a balance of power: The Major Alliances of World War I this article goes on to state: "By 1914, Europe's six major powers were split into two alliances that would form the warring sides in World War I. Britain, France, and Russia formed the Triple Entente, while Germany, Austria-Hungary, and Italy joined in the Triple Alliance. These alliances weren't the sole cause of World War I, as some historians have contended, but they did play an important role in hastening Europe's rush to conflict.

So if India and Pakistan "go at it", militarily, there will be the US government's, contractual obligation to assist India against Pakistan; and Pakistan will be looking to Russia for more military support.

How this might unfold, is anyone's guess; but it certainly has the potential of moving in a terrible direction, and very quickly.

Syrian Army Bombs Kurdish Tankers Smuggling Oil to Turkey, A Message to Trump

Oil tankers and oil makeshift refineries in northeast Syria were bombed by ‘mysterious’ planes yesterday morning, SANA later stated it was done by the Syrian Army regional command.

The statement conveyed Syrian Arab News Agency SANA was brief but very meaningful:

“SANA’s correspondent in al-Hasakah quoted a field source as saying: after verifying that some Kurdish organizations in the Syrian Jazira region smuggle Syrian oil through tanks through Jarablus and Erbil region in northern Iraq to the Turkish regime, which they claim to be their main enemy, Groups of these tanks and oil refining centers were destroyed this morning.

The source stressed that strict measures will be taken against any smuggling of stolen oil from Syrian territory outside Syria.”

Syrian Jazira region refers to the Syrian territories east and northeast of the Euphrates.

That’s it!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US government, has been at its most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid, in this totally illegal occupation of Syrian oil fields, and the looting of its products.

I would like to hope, that SOMEONE in Moscow, is talking to SOMEONE in Washington, about avoiding military conflict between the US and Russia in Syria, but right now, it appears that this is a question of "when", not "if".

I would like to politely remind President Trump that what he has done here, is totally and completely illegal, under international law. The question here is, when, and how, will Putin respond to this behaviour?

Mr. President, please; I would calmly and seriously suggest that the US getting out of Syria would be a very reasonable thing to do, if you don't want the US military enmeshed in a war with Russia in Syria.

Trump Claims that Nicaragua Is a “National Security Threat” to Legitimize U.S. Economic Aggression

U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday extended a national emergency declaration for Nicaragua for a year due to the “dismantling and undermining of democratic institutions” by the Government of the Central American country and the alleged repression of activists.

The notice extends for one year the emergency declared on November 27, 2018. The national emergency is intended to broaden the presidential powers to invoke a dozen relevant U.S. laws, however, it is not clear how the declaration would apply to Nicaragua. Trump used a similar emergency statement regarding the U.S.-Mexico border to invoke existing laws that, according to the administration, allow the diversion of money from government programs to build a border wall.

But why has Trump decided to do this?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Nicaragua, a "national security threat"?!? Mr. President, are you flipping kidding us?!?

So let's talk reality here, by looking at the following article:

World's Largest lithium resources op for grabs, due to political upheaval in Bolivia

The article goes on to state: "One of the most prominent conspiracy theories surrounding the recent overthrow of Bolivian President Evo Morales is that the military’s intervention was a coup to ensure US control of lithium.

Considered a critical resource, lithium is a key component of new technologies including car batteries, phones, electronic devices and sophisticated weapons systems – and recent reports suggest Bolivia could host around 30% of the world’s total of the raw material.

In media interviews, Morales has claimed his ousting is the result of a US-backed movement to establish a right-wing leader who will expose the South American nation’s lithium reserves to exploitation by industry."

US companies want to get their hands on Nicaraguan lithium, so a coup was instituted by American interests, and Morales got overthrown: this is not a "conspiracy theory", but is premised on hard, logical fact.

Also, we have documentation from commondreams.org of the following:

After Morales Ousted in Coup, the Lithium Question Looms Large in Bolivia

The article goes on to state: "Tesla (United States) and Pure Energy Minerals (Canada) both showed great interest in having a direct stake in Bolivian lithium. But they could not make a deal that would take into consideration the parameters set by the Morales government. Morales himself was a direct impediment to the takeover of the lithium fields by the non-Chinese transnational firms. He had to go.

After the coup, Tesla’s stock rose astronomically."

Regime change coupled with a color revolution of dubious origins; this has become the US government's "recipe" for the expropriation of natural resources to which the US government, or corporations, have utterly no moral right; but the US government, had to beat out China's potential claim to the stuff, no matter the cost in Nicaraguan blood or money, right?!?

Reality on Thanksgiving Weekend

According to Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week:

“Hunger and homelessness don’t stop for the holidays.”

Tens of millions of Americans “liv(e) on the edge, forced to choose between basic necessities like purchasing food, paying rent, or going to the doctor” when ill.

Poverty is the nation’s leading growth industry. Most US households face a daily struggle to get by.

On average, 550,000 Americans are homeless each night.

I see it firsthand whenever outside in downtown Chicago. The city’s Magnificent Mile reveals a reality check.

Countless numbers of homeless, hungry, desperate people line both sides of the avenue, hoping passers-by will offer loose change to help them make it through another day.

Many are combat veterans, treated with disdain by the nation they served. Others have families with children. Some have part-time work when able to find it – paying poverty or sub-poverty wages and no benefits.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I knew that the numbers here were bad, but I wasn't aware of just quite how bad they were, until looking at this article.

The numbers here are not only horrific, but terrifying, in their future implications for this country.

US Vows to ‘Reinforce’ Sanctions, Accuses Venezuela and Cuba of Stirring Regional ‘Strife’Elliott Abrams reiterated support for Guaido and denied that sanctions are damaging the Venezuelan economy.

Guaido proclaimed himself head of state in January and has gone on to lead several unsuccessful efforts to topple Maduro, including a failed military putsch in April.

Trump immediately backed Guaido’s “interim presidency,” handing the Venezuela file to Abrams, a veteran cold warrior infamous for his role in the Iran/Contra scandal, the Reagan administration’s Central America policy, and the Iraq War.

Asked about the efficacy of US sanctions, Abrams assured reporters that the measures are cutting off vital funds for the Venezuelan government. However, he acknowledged that he “would like to see, obviously, the sanctions work better,” adding that “there are plans to reinforce the effort.” He did not offer further details.

What’s the Deal with Sanctions in Venezuela, and Why’s It So Hard for Media to Understand?

Ukraine: Land Privatization Demanded by IMF, Links to Biden Graft Scandal. Engineered Bankruptcy of National Economy

The point here is that the former Minister of Ecology of Ukraine Nikolay Zlochevsky, an owner of “Burisma” gas company, in 2014 introduced a number of Western politicians to the board of directors of his company, which helped him to avoid accusations of corruption. Hunter Biden, son of former US Vice President Joe Biden, received monthly large payments for his “consultancy services”. As a result Ukraine’s General prosecutor General Viktor Shokin, who was investigating the corruption schemes of the company, was forced – under pressure – to resign by Joe Biden, who even boasted about it in the US media.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to hope that someone in the DNC is connecting these dots to get Biden out of the running for President; Tom Perez, DNC Chair; people are reading this... and it will destroy Biden, and potentially the Democratic Party itself, if you allow his candidacy to move forward.
