"What a man believes upon grossly insufficient evidence is an index into his desires - desires of which he himself is often unconscious. If a man is offered a fact which goes against his instincts, hewill scrutinize it closely, and unless the evidence is overwhelming, he will refuse to believe it. If, on the other hand, he is offered something which affords a reason for acting in accordance to his instincts, he will accept it even on the slightest evidence. The origin of myths is explained in this way." -- Bertrand Russell, philosopher - "Roads to Freedom"

White House rejects reports about US staying in Paris climate deal

The administration of US President Donald Trump has reaffirmed its decision to pull out of a global pact to fight climate change known as the Paris Climate Agreement, rejecting reports suggesting Washington was reversing course.

The White House announcement, which would deepen a rift with American allies, came following reports that the Trump administration was weighing a policy shift on the 2015 pact at a Montreal meeting with environment ministers from 30 countries on Saturday.

“There has been no change in the United States’ position on the Paris agreement,” said White House Deputy Press Secretary Lindsay Walters.

51 Iraqi migrants, incl 17 children, found crammed in Berlin-bound truck

A group of 51 migrants, including 17 children, has been found crammed in a truck heading to Berlin, German federal police say. The exhausted migrants were taken for questioning, while the Turkish driver was arrested for alleged human trafficking.
Early Saturday, police said they pulled over a truck with Turkish license plates on federal highway A12 near the town of Muellrose, not far from the Polish border, revealing “a shocking picture,”according to Der Spiegel. 20 men, 14 women, 10 boys and seven girls were squeezed inside the vehicle. According to the police report, these were several families of Iraqi origin.

North Korea's Nuclear Tests Could Trigger "Supervolcano" Eruption

China has limited access to a nature reserve on its border with North Korea after a mysterious series of seismic shakes at the rogue nation's nuclear test site were detected less than 10 minutes after it conducted its latest test, which also triggered a sizable tremor. The severity of the tremors prompted Beijing to close the site over fears that underground detonations by the North Koreans at a facility near Punggye-ri could lead to rockslides, or worse, trigger an eruption of the active "super volcano" Mount Paektu, according to Disclose.tv.

The Neoconservatives Have Declared War On The Realists

In recent years, I've increasingly suspected that when it comes to foreign policy, the realists offer some of the most sane observations.

These suspicions were confirmed earlier this year when after the election of Donald Trump, John Mearsheimer, one of modern realism's current standard bearers, wrote in The National Interest that Trump should "adopt a realist foreign policy" and outlines a far better foreign policy agenda that what we've seen coming from Washington.

And what is this realist foreign policy? For Mearsheimer, some main tenets include:

Accepting that the US attempt at nation building in Afghanistan, Egypt, Iraq, Libya, Syria and Yemen "has been an abject failure."

"Washington [should] respect the sovereignty of other states even when it disagrees with their internal policies."

"Spreading democracy, especially by force, almost always fails."

FORMER FACEBOOK EXECUTIVE SAYS GOOGLE, FACEBOOK ARE ‘SURVEILLANCE STATES’

Even though he was once an executive at Facebook, Chamath Palihapitiya, CEO of Social Capital Hedosophia Holdings, favors investing in Amazon instead, he told CNBC's "Fast Money: Halftime Report" on Thursday.

President Donald Trump has been a critic of Amazon, tweeting his disdain for coverage from The Washington Post, which is a personal holding of Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos. But Palihapitiya said he thinks that Facebook and Google face more regulatory risk, given the many retailers that compete with Amazon.

"Amazon is a microscopic portion of global consumption today, so ultimately I think it has more room to grow before it invites regulatory overview," Palihapitiya said. "On the other hand, Facebook and Google effectively are surveillance states. And they have so much personal, private information about so many citizens of so many countries."

Google has already had a tussle with regulators in Europe, after the company was slapped with a record fine in one investigation.

Soldiers drafted in and extra armed police on the streets as Theresa May raises terror level to CRITICAL after ISIS claim Tube bucket-bomb attack was carried out by a cell of several jihadis

Armed police have flooded London's streets as the terror threat level was raised to critical amid fears the Parsons Green bomber could strike again, Theresa May announced tonight.

The introduction of Operation Temperer will see soldiers replacing police at key sites including nuclear power plants to free up extra armed officers for regular patrols.

Scotland Yard said it is making 'excellent' progress in hunting the suspected terrorist who set off a crude bucket bomb on a packed commuter train by Parsons Green tube station in west London at 8.20am.
Mrs May said in a statement from Number 10: 'The Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre has now decided to raise the national threat level from severe to critical - this means their assessment is that a further attack may be imminent.'

Minutes later Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley suggested there might have been more than one person involved, stating that police were 'chasing down suspects'.

Prayers for the people of the UK; but most of all, let us hope and pray that the British government doesn't see this as their "golden opportunity" to seize the day (in a very "V for Vendetta" kind of way) to heap even more repression and curtailment of the rights of British citizens.

‘Dual Food’: Same Western Branding But Low-Quality Goods for Eastern Europe

Many multinational food companies have been to shown to be cheating consumers in eastern Europe by selling inferior products under known and respected brand names, according to V?ra Jourová, the European Commissioner for Justice, Consumers and Gender Equality.

When buying a bottle of Coca-Cola in Prague, one would normally expect it to be the same Coca-Cola for sale in London. But V?ra Jourová, European Commissioner for Justice, Consumers and Gender Equality, stated that multinational food companies are selling vastly different products to different countries, but use identical branding on their packaging.

According to Jourova, the quality of many foodstuffs sold in Eastern Europe by Western multinationals is significantly inferior to the same branded product sold in Western Europe.

7 Reasons nearly everyone has gluten “intolerance” to some degree

If you were to flush a handful of paper towels down your toilet every day for a couple of weeks, you can imagine the immense clogging that would occur eventually, and you would probably need to call in a plumber, after you experience a back up of the toxic toilet water in the pipes and possibly an overflow onto your floors. That polluted water would contain everything that you flushed after the initial clogging occurred, and that means excrement that had been rotting for days and possibly weeks on end.

Syria’s Victory in Deir Ezzor

The Tide is Turning against the Deep State NWO.

The Syrian Arab Army have achieved yet another dramatic victory this time lifting the ISIS siege of the heroic city of Deir Ezzor. For years Deir Ezzor has been surrounded by enemies and under siege first by the FSA and Al Nusra and then by ISIS. They have withstood repeated attacks by the US-NATO air force most infamously last fall when the Americans bombed Deir Ezzor right after agreeing to a ceasefire, a treacherous move that paved the way for a nearly successful ISIS offensive to capture the city. The brave defenders of Deir Ezzor withstood these endless attacks becoming a symbol of the heroic resistance of all of Syria. For years Syrians and their friends around the world have dreamed that one day this siege would be lifted. Our dreams have finally come true and faster then anyone could have imagined.

Rohingya Genocide – Links to Corporatism, Geopolitics & Wahhabism

By Chris Kanthan

The humanitarian crisis in Myanmar is harrowing, with more than 150,000 Muslims having to flee the country in the recent months. The stories of persecution and ethnic cleansing are very troubling, although sporadic conflicts between Buddhists and Muslims in Myanmar have existed for many decades. While the mainstream media is focusing exclusively on the religious context of this story, they are completely missing – or deliberately avoiding – the potential roles of oil/gas pipelines, geopolitical US-China tug of war, and Saudi Arabia’s subversive influence in that region.

Let’s start with the obvious – the Western media is not going to shed crocodile tears for some people in a far away place such as Myanmar, unless there is some hidden agenda related to billions of dollars and the Deep State.

Now some basic facts about Myanmar...

Nowhere was this more evident than RT’s relentless coverage of Israel and its US lobby.

The central role of the military in deciding US foreign policy has its roots in the strategic decisions taken during the Obama-Clinton Presidency. Several policies were decisive in the rise of unprecedented military-political power.

Clearly the US has escalated the pivotal role of the military in the making of foreign and, by extension, domestic policy. The rise of ‘the Generals’ to strategic positions in the Trump regime is evident, deepening its role as a highly autonomous force determining US strategic policy agendas.

The Obama-Clinton legacy facing Trump was built around a three-legged stool: an international order based on military aggression and confrontation with Russia; a ‘pivot to Asia’ defined as the military encirclement and economic isolation of China – via bellicose threats and economic sanctions against North Korea; and the use of the military as the praetorian guards of free trade agreements in Asia excluding China.

The Obama ‘legacy’ consists of an international order of globalized capital and multiple wars. The continuity of Obama’s ‘glorious legacy’ initially depended on the election of Hillary Clinton.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am deeply disappointed in how quickly, and thoroughly, President Trump became compromised by his "Presidential Whisperers", Mc Masters, Mattis, and Kelly, and the roads to war, and potential ultimate American military defeat, upon which they are leading him.

Let us examine just where their advice may be leading this country, and I would politely suggest; this will not be in a positive direction.

Negotiations with North Korea are the only way to avoid a regional, if not a world war; the US has insisted that negotiations have failed, so will not renew them.

NATO continues to surround Russia with its troops; we could very quickly find the US and NATO at war with Russia.

The US and Israel have given an ultamatum to the Syrian government; Assad must go, alongside any Iranians: in light of the fact that Russia was invited by the Syrian government to assist it in clearing out the jihadis, there could be a military confrontation here also.

President Trump and Tillerson have accused Iran of "breaking the spirit of the P5+1 agreement", and are looking for a way to regime change Tehran; Russian military and political leaders have long said publicly, that should Iran get attacked, it will come to its aid mlitarily.

The US is backing Ukraine against Russia, and may be sending offensive weapons to them shortly; this is another way in which the US could get dragged into war with Russa.

Then, there is the back-and-forth issue with China's trade policies, and the US desire to cut down the value of the Yuan, so this government will do all things it deems necessary, including war, to make this happen.

These potential issues, coupled with a monstrous, unpayable deficit, makes the future of this country....questionable.

So please forgive me, if I am not optimistic for the future of this country; nothing looks good

The 2016 Winner Of The Award For Reverse Excellence

By Brandon Turbeville

Toward the end of every year, it has become a Western tradition to initiate the proceedings of a “round up” or “best of” of the people, events, and products of the year and attempt to crown a number of individuals with awards for the most accomplished, best dressed, most influential, or most creative of that year. The world of politics and government is no different. Since Wall Street and the Corporate world essentially function as government as well, it is natural that anyone in banking, finance, or the business of exploitation and the military industrial complex be eligible for recognition as well.

However, while politicians, government officials, corporate overlords, and financiers are awash with awards and backslapping trophies, there was still no official award provided to them at the end of the year for their life’s accomplishments and those made over the past 12 months. We decided in 2015, it was time to change this.

Hawaii Becomes First U.S. State To Go Cashless For Marijuana Sales

While marijuana is legal for medical use in Hawaii, the feds still consider it a Schedule I drug. This status has brought problems for many banks and credit unions, which is the reason why cannabis dispensaries have been cash-only...

UN Security Council Resolution 2375 on North Korea: Preparation for War?

This formula begins with sanctions under Chapter VII of the UN Charter: approximately eleven sanctions have been inflicted upon North Korea, and four presidential statements. The sanctions are, in themselves aggressive action, intended to weaken and demoralize the intended nation-targeted victim, and ultimately destroy the will, the spirit and unity of the nation. The now twelve sanctions on the DPRK are reminiscent of the words Richard Nixon used for the CIA engineered destruction of the democratically elected government of Salvador Allende in Chile:

“Make the economy scream!!”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US position, over decades, has forced Kim Jung Un and his predecessors into the only posture he believes will save his country; creating a creadible nuclear threat, in order to prevent regime change in Pongyang.

I cannot tell you precisely when this war will start; but China has already announced that if the US fires first, they will stand with North Korea.

That means that we are most likely looking at either a US/ South Korean decap strike against Kim Jung Un, or a false flag, to be blamed on North Korea, to get a military strike against it justified.

But either way, my sense of this is that it will come relatively quickly; within the next couple of months, perhaps.

What the US government dares not wait for, is for Kim to actually acquire or develop the nuclear weapon he wants to use as a threat against US intervention, so my sense is that the action will come sooner rather than later.

NALED Insecticide Fact Sheet

Like all organophosphate insecticides, NALED (DIBROM) Naled is an insecticide in the organophosphate pesticide family used primarily for mosquito control. Dibrom is a common brand name for naled products. About one million pounds are used annually in the U.S. Like all organophosphates, naled is toxic to the nervous system. Symptoms of exposure include headaches, nausea, and diarrhea. Naled is more toxic when exposure occurs by breathing contaminated air than through other kinds of exposure. In laboratory tests, naled exposure caused increased aggressiveness and a deterioration of memory and learning.

Naled’s breakdown product DICHLORVOS (another organophosphate insecticide) interferes with prenatal brain development. In laboratory animals, exposure for just 3 days during pregnancy when the brain is growing quickly reduced brain size 15 percent.

Police grew suspicious and requested a copy of the server early this year, but they were provided with an elaborate falsified image designed to hide the massive violations.

The secret server was connected to the House Democratic Caucus, an organization chaired by then-Rep. Xavier Becerra. Police informed Becerra that the server was the subject of an investigation and requested a copy of it. Authorities considered the false image they received to be interference in a criminal investigation, the senior official said.

The Prospect of a Third Dose of MMR

In October 2012, the journal Pediatrics published a study titled “Impact of a Third Dose of Measles-Mumps-Rubella Vaccine on a Mumps Outbreak.”5 More recently, on Sept. 7, 2017, The New England Journal of Medicine published another similar study titled “Effectiveness of a Third Dose of MMR Vaccine for Mumps Outbreak Control.”6

The studies were conducted, at least in part, out of concern over the continuing outbreaks of mumps among high school and college students in the United States despite the curious fact that the vast majority of them (in some cases as high as 97 percent and even 100 percent) had been fully vaccinated with two doses of MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccine.7 8

FLASHBACK - Doctors Who Discovered Cancer Enzymes in Vaccines all Found Murdered

Not long ago, Neon Nettle reported on the epidemic of doctors being murdered, most of which were in Florida, U.S. The scientists all shared a common trait, they had all discovered that nagalase enzyme protein was being added to vaccines which were then administrated to humans. (SCROLL DOWN FOR VIDEO)

Nagalese is what prevents vitamin D from being produced in the body, which is the body’s main defense to naturally kill cancer cells.

According to Thebigriddle.com: Nagalase is a protein that’s also created by all cancer cells. This protein is also found in very high concentrations in autistic children. And they’re PUTTING it in our vaccines!!

Myanmar says U.S. official barred from Rohingya conflict zone

Myanmar said on Friday a visiting U.S. official would not be allowed to go to a region where violence has triggered an exodus of nearly 400,000 Rohingya Muslims that the United Nations has branded a “textbook example of ethnic cleansing”.

The Rohingya have fled from western Rakhine state to neighboring Bangladesh to escape a military offensive that has raised questions about Myanmar’s transition to civilian rule under the leadership of Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi.

U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Patrick Murphy will voice Washington’s concerns about the Rohingya and press for greater access to the conflict area for humanitarian workers, the State Department said.

Myanmar officials said he would meet government leaders in the capital, Naypyitaw, and attend an address to the nation by Suu Kyi on Tuesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If there is nothing going on here, why is the Myanmar government so terrified of letting this guy into the western Rakhine state?!?

FLASHBACK - Cancer industry profits 'locked in' by nagalase molecule injected into humans via vaccines... spurs tumor growth... explains aggressive vaccine push

As Natural News' reported, leading up to his death, Dr. Bradstreet was working with a little-known molecule that occurs naturally in the human body. GcMAF (Globulin component Macrophage Activating Factor), which is the GC protein after it combines with vitamin D in the body, has the potential to be a universal cure for cancer.

It's also believed to be capable of treating and reversing autism, HIV, liver/kidney disease and diabetes.

Dr. Bradstreet was working with a naturally occurring compound that may be the single most effective thing in the immune system for killing cancer cells

In an interview on the Hagmann and Hagmann Report, Dr. Ted Broer, an internationally recognized health and nutrition expert also based in Florida, describes how cutting edge Dr. Bradstreet's work was, as well as a discovery he made that very well may have placed him in great danger and could have been the motive for his suspected murder.

Israel’s Foreign Agents Don’t Register, Why Should Russia’s? Can Russia Use Israel Lobby Tactics To Skirt FARA Order?

The Department of Justice has ordered Russia’s U.S.-based RT news network to begin registering as Russian foreign agents under the 1938 Foreign Agents Registration Act. The law requires US-based agents of foreign principals to disclose financial information and activities in regular public filings overseen by a designated DOJ office. Over the years FARA has been amended to exclude bona fide news organizations. The Department of Justice order breaks a long period of unfettered access to the U.S. by foreign press agencies, many directly and indirectly financed by foreign governments.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I personally have a great respect for the veracity of rt.com, and - as readers of this blog know - link to it frequently, because you do get information you just don't get from the US corporate presstitutes, and whorespondents.

They seem to be fact-centric, rather than narrative-centric, which I heartily applaud.

I do hope that they learn from the experience of the Israeli lobby how to equivocate, stall/ delay; get some kind of special exemption; reconstitute; and offer to spy for the various alphabet soup agencies here in the US.

rt.com is one of my "canaries in the coal mine, along with presstv.com (an Iranian outlet in English); sputniknews.com; and farsnews.com (another Iranain outlet in English).

If any of these are offline, meaning their English language blogs are unreachable, I would figure that something big, and nasty, is about to go down, in terms of yet another US preemptive war, fought to defend its economic hegemony.

'Slippery Slope'? Cities across the country allowing non-citizens to vote

A small Maryland city drew national attention this week for allowing non-citizens including illegal immigrants to cast ballots in local elections – but it's just the latest municipality to do so, in a trend that has some worried the changing definition of 'voter' could erode what it means to be a citizen.

“It’s a slippery slope,” said Ira Mehlman, spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR).

Millions of Western dollars meant to save ‘lost generation’ of Syrians vanished – HRW

Millions of dollars pledged by the international community to pay for the education of Syrian refugee children has gone missing, according to an investigation by Human Rights Watch (HRW).

In 2016, a conference in London attended by German Chancellor Angela Merkel, as well as David Cameron and John Kerry, then-UK prime minister and US secretary of state, respectively, pledged $1.4 billion to help over 1.5 million displaced Syrian children go to school to prevent the emergence of a “lost generation.” The six largest donors were the European Union, the US, Germany, the United Kingdom, Norway, and Japan, and the money was due to go to Turkey, Jordan, and Lebanon – the three countries hosting the most Syrian refugees.

The HRW investigation found “large discrepancies” between the money that was pledged and what was actually received by the host countries.

Sweden never wanted NATO membership, but 'now we have US-led military drills on our land’

Despite Swedish people not wanting an agreement with NATO, it was pushed through parliament; working closely with the US will mean nuclear weapons in the country which Swedes are definitely against, says Marilyn Barden, a member of the 'No to NATO' group.

While the US is building up its presence in Poland with more than a thousand military vehicles, including nearly 200 tanks and an entire infantry division as part of the existing NATO force in Eastern Europe, American troops are now involved in Sweden's biggest military exercises in more than 20 years.

Sweden is a signatory of the so-called host nation agreement that enables foreign units, specifically NATO, to operate within Swedish borders for exercises, crises or military operations.

Gallup Poll: US Majority Backs Attacking North Korea

A new poll from Gallup shows that a majority of Americans, 58%, are in favor of attacking North Korea militarily if the US “cannot accomplish its goals by more peaceful means first.” Americans were split more or less evenly on whether sanctions and diplomacy could work.

This is the first time Gallup has asked about attacking North Korea since 2003. At the time, only 47% favored an attack. The shift in the last 14 years appears to have been greatly along political lines, with an overwhelming 82% of Republicans now backing war, compared to just 37% of Democrats.

The possibility of such an attack has been discussed a lot more this year than any time in decades. Repeated North Korean tests have been presented as a growing threat to the US mainland, with the Trump Administration declaring diplomacy a failure from the start.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looking at this response, I can only conclude that Gallup was either push polling, working in zip codes where a positive outcome to such a question is assured, or polling the criminally insane, or both.

Don't these nincompoops comprehend that if the US shoots first, China will protect North Korea, and a war against China right now is a war we most probably cannot win?!?

These must be the graduates of Common Core, with lots... of participation trophies, but absolutely zero critical thinking capabilites!

New US weapons could be game-changers in naval war with China

SSLs are shipboard lasers that down incoming missiles by burning holes in their skins or blinding their sensors. EMRGs tap electromagnetic force to propel metal projectiles without powder charges. Their ability to hit sea, air and land targets at devastating speeds of up to 5,000 miles per hour makes using explosive warheads unnecessary. An HVP is an interchangeable high-velocity projectile that can be loaded in an electromagnetic launcher or conventional naval gun.

The bottom lines are cost and logistics: Lasers can be fired for less than one dollar a shot if onboard power-supply issues can be resolved. EMRG ammunition and HVPs have an estimated unit cost of about US$25,000 each and can be stored by the hundreds vs. current Navy surface-to-air missiles that are larger and cost anywhere from US$900,000 to several million dollars apiece. Gatling guns that can hit cruise missiles run out of ammunition and must withdraw from battle to reload.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Maybe. Given the other recent "successes" of US weapons, I don't feel particularly excited by this news.

Enrollment drops at schools known for ‘social justice warfare’

Universities known for being hotbeds of campus protest and liberal activism are struggling with declining enrollments and budget shortfalls, and higher education analysts say that’s no coincidence.

Take Oberlin College. According to a document leaked to The Oberlin Review, the school’s student newspaper, the small liberal arts college famous for social justice hoaxes has had trouble attracting and retaining students, missing this year’s enrollment mark by 80 and racking up a $5 million budget deficit in the process.

William A. Jacobson, a professor at Cornell Law School who runs the Legal Insurrection blog, said the “most obvious culprit” in Oberlin’s dwindling admissions is “relentless social justice warfare.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why in the name of sam hill did social justice get conflated with "social warfare"?!?

Obama’s Gift to Trump: Monarchic War Powers

Senator Rand Paul is to be commended for forcing his colleagues to address the endless wars in the Middle East and proposing that they sunset the 2001 and 2002 AUMF (Authorization for Use of Military Force). This past week, Senator Paul incisively observed in multiple addresses before the Senate body that lawmakers have not debated the topic of war for sixteen years, despite the fact the US constitution vests the war powers of the United States of America not in the president but in the US Congress, the legislative, not the executive branch of government. The Congress may have granted the president to take the nation to war in the cases of Afghanistan and Iraq, but they never explicitly authorized five of the seven wars currently underway.

US Plan for New Afghan Force Poses Threat to Civilians

The Pentagon and the Afghan government, in a move intended to increase the size of Afghan security forces without spending too much money, are poised to approve a new irregular combat force, with estimates it could number in excess of 20,000 fighters.

Both groups have dispatched delegations to India to examine the structure of the Indian Territorial Army, an irregular force created for deployment in certain areas where the regular military’s presence would be unpopular.

Afghans are unlikely to welcome this idea, however, because the US already tried this once with the establishment of the Afghan Local Police (ALP), a militia force made up of US-funded warlords given police powers and little to no oversight. Unsurprisingly, this quickly became a flurry of extortion rackets and other widespread abuse.

Webmaster's Commentary:

The NSA has all of Clinton’s “lost” emails… but James Comey rejected them in order to obstruct justice

If President Trump’s recent tweets are any indication, former Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) director James Comey isn’t going to be let off the hook for obstructing justice in his handling of the Hillary Clinton email scandal. And more than likely neither will Hillary Clinton herself, as it has now been revealed that the National Security Agency (NSA) has in its possession all 33,000 of Clinton’s “lost” emails, which are just waiting to be exposed.

The spy agency had reportedly attempted to hand these emails over to Comey many months back as part of his so-called investigation into the critical matter. But Comey outright rejected them before proceeding to deny a recommendation that Clinton be prosecuted for her alleged crimes – a move that, in and of itself, has become a scandal all on its own.

Spotlight: Kurdish parliament approves independence referendum on Sept. 25

The parliament of the semi-autonomous region of Kurdistan on Friday approved the independence referendum to be held on Sept. 25.
All the 65 lawmakers attending the session of the 111-seat regional parliament voted in favor of holding the referendum on the independence of the Kurdish region and the disputed areas.

The parliament also decided to invite relevant parties, including Kurdistan's Independent High Elections and Referendum Commission, to conduct the referendum.

According to Tariq Jowahar, parliament media advisor, the session was chaired by the deputy speaker, as Speaker Yousif Mohammed Sadiq did not attend the session since his Gorran Movement is boycotting the session along with the Kurdistan Islamic Group.

Kaka Bashar, a Kurdish lawmaker from the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK), said he regretted that some of the lawmakers boycotted the parliament session, particularly the Gorran Movement, and hoped they will take part in the coming session.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There will probably be a massive, bloody civil war in both Iraq and Syria, in preparation for the existence of an independent Kurdistan, but that is of no matter to those in the Bowels of Power in the Occupied Unhinged Surveilled States of Amerika; Kurdistan will concentrate the oil revenues, and the OUSSA can guarantee a Wesetern-centric government, and an absolute certainty that this oil will only be sold for US dollars.

Flashback - First-Ever Peer-Reviewed Study of Vaccinated vs Unvaccinated Children Shows Vaccinated Kids Have a Higher Rate of Sickness, 470% Increase in Autism

The first-ever, peer-review study has been published comparing total-health in vaccinated and unvaccinated children. Dr. Anthony Mawson led a research team that investigated the relationship between vaccination exposures and acute or chronic illnesses in home-schooled children. The vaccinated children had a much higher rate of autism and ADHD, at a rate of 470% higher than those who received no shots. Vaccinated children were also more vulnerable to allergies and eczema.

Unvaccinated children contract mild childhood diseases more frequently, but their vaccinated counterparts suffer pneumonia and ear infections more frequently. The finding that vaccination introduces a significant risk for autism is devastating to the vaccine industry and, therefore, will be vigorously attacked.

Germany Launches Probe After Pentagon's Syrian Arms Smuggling Story Goes Viral

The German government has opened a probe into an illegal Pentagon arms trafficking operation after a bombshell investigative report on the secret program went viral this week.

On Wednesday we reported on the continuing Pentagon arms pipeline to Syria which runs through Europe, the Balkans, and Caucuses, and which is based on a shady network of private contractors and altered US government paperwork. The Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) and the Balkan Investigative Reporting Network (BIRN) produced conclusive evidence and internal memos proving that not only is the Pentagon currently involved in shipping up to $2.2 billion worth of (mostly old Soviet) weapons from private dealers to US-backed Syrian militants, but is actually manipulating paperwork such as end-user certificates in order to conceal the ultimate destinations of the weaponry (in this case Syria).

Gemstones from Myanmar

With regard to Burmese gemstones, the first thing that springs to mind is high quality rubies and sapphires from Mogok in the Mandalay region. In fact, this area has been called "The Valley of Rubies" due to its glittering treasures of exceptional purity and hue, such as the famed "pigeon's blood" deep bluish-red rubies. Such prized rubies have been mined since the sixth century. In the late 1500s, the King of Burma appropriated the area and took control of its mineral wealth. For a short time, the area was freely mined, and then became a British colony, before gaining independence in 1948. From 1962 to 2011, the country was ruled by a military junta.

Israeli Minister Threatens War With Syria Over Iranian Presence in the Country

Ayelet Shaked, the Justice Minister of Israel has just threatened the Syrian government stating that Israel “will do what is necessary” if Syrian President Bashar al-Assad does not keep Iran out of Syria.

The Israeli government - who last week bombed a Syrian military outpost, killing two soldiers - have now verbally challenged the Syrian government in the form of offering an ultimatum. The threats towards Syria come a time when the Assad government forces have all but extinguished the presence of Daesh in Syria and are coming close to completely ending the war. Israel meanwhile seem to be having an anxiety attack over the current situation and have been beating hard on the drums of war.

Syria Summary – A New Clash Looms in Syria’s East

Since then several convoys of military bridging equipment have been seen on the road to Deir Ezzor. It is now obvious that the SAA will bridge the river (all regular bridges have been destroyed by U.S. bombing) and send significant forces across. New questions now are: When, where and with what aim?

As soon as the government intent became clear the U.S. pushed its local proxy forces to immediately snatch the ISIS held oilfields. In less than two days they deployed over 30 kilometers deep into the ISIS held areas north of the Euphrates. It is obvious that such progress could not have been made if ISIS had defended itself. I find it likely that a deal has been made between those two sides.

On Saturday, the US-led coalition announced in an official statement that it will support the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and Deir Ezzor Military Council (DMC) advance towards Deir Ezzor city.

The US-led coalition said that it will provide equipment, training, intelligence and logistics support, precision fires and battlefield advice for the SDF and DMC during the operation.

The US-led coalition stressed that it will support the SDF until it fully captures the Khabur River valley. This could mean that the US is not interested in capturing other areas in Deir Ezzor governorate. Kurdish sources claimed that the aim of the attack is to reach Markada town south of al-Shaddadah town just to secure the US base near al-Sahdadah.

The SDF and Russian-backed Syrian government forces are conducting parallel but separate offensives against IS in the strategic and oil-rich eastern province of Deir Ezzor.

Regime troops are waging an assault for the provincial capital, Deir Ezzor city, while SDF fighters battle the jihadists further east across the Euphrates River.

Defying Israel’s eviction orders in East Jerusalem

It was supposed to have been Nizar Shamasneh’s first day back at school.

At around 5:30am, a large number of Israeli police descended on the Sheikh Jarrah area in occupied East Jerusalem. They had arrived to evict the Shamasneh family.

“They took everything: my schoolbag, our clothing, my grandfather’s identity card,” Nizar, aged 15, said. “It was heartbreaking to be thrown out in the street without being able to defend yourself.”

The family were caught somewhat off-guard by the 5 September eviction.

As the family had secured a court injunction, they thought that they could remain in their home for at least another five days.

Yet on 4 September, Israeli settlers appealed successfully against the injunction. As a result, the eviction was allowed to proceed immediately.

The family was not informed that the injunction had been overturned.

Syria's President Exposed A Flaw In US Foreign Policy That No One Wants To Talk About

Would the death of one man rid every single North Korean of the hostility and hatred they harbor toward the United States when many know full well that in the early 1950s the U.S. bombed North Korea so relentlessly they eventually ran out of targets to hit — that the U.S. military killed off at least 20 percent of the civilian population?

If Kim Jong-un is removed, will North Koreans suddenly forget that nearly every North Korean alive today has a family relative that was killed by the United States in the 1950s?
