Federal Reserve documents stagnant state of US economy

The US Federal Reserve Board last week released its semiannual Monetary Policy Report to Congress, providing an assessment of the state of the American economy and outlining the central bank’s monetary policy going forward. The report, along with Fed Chair Janet Yellen’s testimony before both the House of Representatives and the Senate, as well as a speech by Yellen the previous week in Cleveland, present a grim picture of the reality behind the official talk of economic “recovery.”

Sharpton: Climate Change is a Civil Rights Issue, Blacks Suffer Disproportionately

Monday, at the White House Champions of Change Faith Leaders for Climate event, the host of MSNBC’s “PoliticsNation,” Reverend Al Sharpton, said climate change is a “civil rights issue” because it “disproportionately” affects African-Americans.

Sharpton said, “it [climate change] is an issue of justice, and it is an issue of human rights. African-Americans are at a higher risk of being close, or predisposed to areas of carbon, as well as other poisonous pollution in the air. And we have a disproportionate interest because we suffer disproportionately.”

Here's one to add to your list of reasons for climate change.

UK defence secretary admits flouting parliamentary ban on military involvement in Syrian war

It should have been an occasion of high political drama of national import. Defence Secretary Michael Fallon had been forced to answer opposition MPs for the government covertly signing off on British pilots taking part in US and Canadian air raids in Syria—in naked defiance of not one but two parliamentary votes.

Video: Donald Trump Reads Lindsey Graham’s Cell Phone Number Aloud During Speech

During a speech in South Carolina Wednesday, Donald Trump gave out the personal cell phone number of fellow presidential candidate and South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham.

Trump gave it out one day after Graham called the real estate tycoon a “jackass” over his Saturday comments about Sen. John McCain only being a war hero because he was “captured,” adding earlier in the speech that Graham is a “lightweight.”

The US presidency for sale

The 2016 US presidential election will be the most expensive in history, costing an estimated $10 billion, when all spending by candidates, the Democratic and Republican parties, super PACs and other corporate lobbies and trade unions is tabulated.

The vast sums being raised and spent by the Democratic and Republican candidates make a mockery of the claims that the United States is a democracy in which the people rule. It is big money that rules, dominating the entire process of selecting the candidates of the only two officially recognized parties and effectively determining the outcome of the vote on November 8, 2016.

MD Found Murdered inside Florida Home Today. This makes 6 in 30 days, 5 still missing

Yet another doctor was just found murdered inside his home; here on the East Coast, of Florida. This makes six doctors to be found dead in the last month; just from this region of the country, alone. Four out of the six were found dead here in Florida. We lost the wonderful, holistic Dr. Teresa Sievers, MD, who was found murdered in her Florida home just weeks ago. We’ve also lost the beloved Dr. Jeff Bradstreet, MD, who was found in a river with a gunshot to his chest. He’d recently moved to Georgia from Florida. We’ve also lost Dr. Riley, who was found in Georgia at her home; just a few hours from the Florida border. She was found with a gunshot wound to her head.

Lord Greville Janner got a starring role on Australian TV (must watch)

The Australian TV was kind enough to conceal the embarrassing fact that at the time Lord Greville Jenner allegedly slept with young kids in his marital bed, he was also the Chairman of the BOD, a body that claims to represent British Jewry.

It’s shaping up to be the biggest political scandal in Britain’s history. There is new evidence that some of the country’s most respected men were in fact depraved paedophiles. Leaders that were preying on children as young as eight and nine. Many of the kids were trafficked from state-run homes and other institutions to be abused by MPs, Lords, and spies. They were protected from on high by a secret code, and have never been held to account for their horrific crimes.

After realizing that nobody has a clue what is causing what is becoming a wide-spread problem I suggested telling my cable modem to drop from 300mbps down to 100mbps and see if that clears it up.

According to Time Warner Oceanic's own speed test, I am now running at just 30mbps, 1/10th of what I am paying for and 1/3 of what I had before! Well done, Time Warner. You have me a faster modem I didn't want and didn't order and now have a much slower connection than I did before!

Anti-vaccine witch hunt FAIL: Dr. Jack Wolfson cleared of all charges for exercising his free speech rights on the issue of vaccine risks and the stupidity of blind medical obedience

The Arizona Osteopathic Medical Board took up the complaints against Dr. Jack Wolfson, and they concluded that although Dr. Wolfson's statements might not reflect the consensus of the medical establishment, they are an acceptable expression of Dr. Wolfson's free speech rights to voice his own educated medical opinion on matters relating to public safety and medical practices.

Vaccine industry FAIL: Dr. Wolfson will not be silenced
All the doctors and trolls and Pharma-funded operatives who were calling for Dr. Wolfson's license to be revoked, in other words, have once again failed to achieve their desired aim. Dr. Wolfson continues to practice medicine in Arizona as a well-respected cardiologist, where he is widely celebrated by his patients for being a doctor who isn't paralyzed into silence by the medical system... and is therefore able to offer extremely valuable opinions and insight on medical issues affecting millions of people today.

If vaccines don't cause brain damage, why is GlaxoSmithKline paying out $63 million to vaccine victims?

Most medical professionals and Big Pharma folks are quick to defend and recommend such vaccines; of course pharma giant GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), the manufacturers of the swine flu vaccine, Pandemrix, is a key player in this regard. However, they've come under fire recently and rather than sit under a protective you-can't-touch-me cloak, the pharma giant has been ordered to pay about $60 million to the UK government after it was determined that Pandemrix played a role in causing brain damage in a range of cases.

Missing Gold, Unpayable Debts, Financial Crises, Bail-Outs and Bail-Ins… There Must Be a Better Way

The US congress bailed-out the banking sector, General Motors, and others with $700 Billion from TARP.

The Federal Reserve added approximately $4 Trillion to their balance sheet with Quantitative Easing and other programs in their effort to bail-out the banking cartel since the 2008 crisis.

Cyprus banks confiscated deposits, after the elite and insiders exited early, and they called it a bail-in. That confiscation is the template for future bank failures in Europe, Canada, the US and other countries.

We may eventually see similar confiscations (bail-ins) in Greek banks, as well as in Spain, Italy, Ireland, the United States, and others.

There must be a better way!

CONFLICT OF INTEREST: US Company Building Gas Terminal in Ukraine

In an attempt to find an alternative to Russian gas supplies, Ukrainian Prime Minister Yatsenyuk has announced that American company Frontera Resources Corporation will be working in the country to build a liquefied natural gas terminal.

The company believes it has prospective resoures of 365 billion cubic meters of gas, with 266 billion cubic meters of recoverable resources.

Ukraine stopped buying gas from Russia on July 1st, and Kiev believes Western financial institutions, such as the IMF, may provide the country with $1 billion to purchase natural gas. However, with the worsening crisis in Greece they would not be wise to bet on such help being guaranteed.

Obama Calls for Release of US Citizens Detained in Iran

Tehran should release US citizens detained by the Iranian government and assist in finding an American who went missing in the country, US President Barack Obama said on Tuesday at the 116th Veterans of Foreign Wars national convention in Pittsburgh.

“Journalist Jason Rezaian should be released, pastor Saeed Abedini should be released, Amir Hekmati, a former sergeant in the US Marine Corps, should be released,” Obama said. “Iran needs to help us find Robert Levinson."

The president added the United States will not relent until “unjustly detained” Americans come home.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These "unjustly detained" people walked across the border into Iran where they were arrested for espionage. That being said, Iran would be smart to acquiesce to this demand, to gain maneuvering room for future negotiations.

How this year's bitterly cold July is ending a hot streak

Two weeks ago, I wrote a column that said that we shouldn't give up on July just yet. There were a few recent examples of previous Julys which had started slow yet still finished nicely.

Well, here we are, two weeks later, two chilly weekends have gone by, and July of 2015 is slowly and steadily inching closer to becoming one for the record books …for all the wrong reasons.

This July is not only shaping up to be the coldest since 1993, it will very likely end an amazing run of 21 straight years where the average July high was 20 Celsius or warmer.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Meanwhile here in the states, all the owned media is screaming that 2015 is the hottest year on record (if you don't count 1936, the Roman and Medieval Warm periods, and ignore the record cold winters we have seen over these last few years).

NATO's Australian Balistics Expert Dr Stephan Fruehling Proved to Be a Fake

Out of the so called experts that have been repetitively used in western media to prove that ‘Russian Separatists’ shot down MH17 one of them has jumped out at me the so called ‘Australian Ballistics Expert’ Dr Stephan Fruehling from the SDSC at the Australian National University.

I remember Dr Fruehling from my time studying at the SDSC@ANU as a pimply faced, heavily accented nerd that had no idea about academic investigation who handed back assignments to students because they didn’t fit in the political agenda that eh was teaching. I wondered how he had suddenly become a world expert on ballistic missiles since my time studying there. The truth is he hadn’t but his statements were being used as ‘proof’ in western media and the bloggosphere stooges like Bellingcat that ‘Russian Separatists’ had ruthlessly shot down a civilian airliner killing 298 innocent civilians.

The Price Of Gold Gets “Curiouser And Curiouser!”

“Edward Bernays was Sigmund Freud’s nephew. He believed that the population had to be manipulated in a democracy to keep order. As I mentioned yesterday, Bernays was instrumental in getting women to smoke for his cigarette company client and to get the American people to support a CIA overthrow of a Guatemalan government that was uncooperative with United Fruit Company. Bernays uses the lowest instincts of humans and appeals to those “animal spirits” over their better judgement to influence mass viewpoints.” This summary of the roots of modern U.S. propaganda techniques was sent to me by Jay Taylor, LINK.

Josef Goebbels implemented Bernays’ theories and techniques in crafting the infamous Nazi Germany propaganda machine. As Naom Chomsky chronicles in his preface to Bernays’ book, “Propaganda,” the U.S. Government and U.S. corporations hired Bernays in late 1920’s in order to utilize his techniques on the American public. The rest, as they say, is history…anyone remember 9/11?

Whistle blower reveals secret U.S. program to recruit, train, and provide visas to ‘terrorists’

While he served as a visa officer in the U.S. consulate in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, for instance, he was obliged under threat of dismissal to issue visas to persons hired clandestinely by the CIA to become trained-in-the-USA terrorists. Most of these psychopathic thugs were clearly and legally unqualified to be issued visas. There is every reason to believe the “Visas for Terrorists” program remains fully operative today. It takes a lot of expendable terrorists to run a global terrorism op.

Springmann places his experiences both within the context of the historical roots of the U.S. Empire and within its current ongoing global destabilization project.

VIP pedophile ring operating out of Buckingham Palace and Balmoral Castle

A teenage boy working at Buckingham Palace revealed he was groomed and sexually abused by a VIP pedophile ring there.

The lad was also assaulted at the Royal Family’s Scottish retreat Balmoral, according to shocking Home Office files, reports the Sunday People.

In a heartbreaking note, the boy – then just 16 – told how he was the victim of “exploitation of the highest order”.

The chilling claims could now be the subject of a police investigation into ­historic allegations of child sex abuse in the 1970s and 80s – linked to MPs and powerful figures.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Israel names boycott drive as threat equal to militant groups, Iran nuclear program

Ten years ago, a small group of Palestinian activists had a novel idea: inspired by the anti-apartheid movement, they called for a global boycott movement against Israel as a nonviolent method to promote the Palestinian struggle for independence.

Long confined to the sidelines, the so-called BDS movement appears to be gaining momentum — so much so that Israel has identified it as a strategic threat on a par with Palestinian militant groups and the Iranian nuclear program.

CHE GUEVARA IN GAZA ~~ THE HIDDEN HISTORY

Che Guevara’s visit to Gaza in 1959 was the first sign of transforming the Zionist colonization of Palestine from a regional conflict to a global struggle against colonialism.

The trigger was the Bandung conference in 1955 and the resulting Non-Aligned Movement, whose members has just recently shaken the yoke of foreign domination. The stature of Nasser, as a world leader in the struggle against Imperialism and colonialism, brought world leaders to see for themselves the devastating results of the ethnic cleansing of Palestine, clearly demonstrated in Gaza refugee camps.

Gaza Strip became the symbol of Palestine. This tiny sliver of land (1.3% of Palestine) remained the only place raising the flag of Palestine. It carried a major part of al Nakba burden when it became the temporary shelter for the inhabitant of 247 villages, expelled from their homes in southern Palestine.

‘No Comment': NBC Covers Up Evidence of Immigration Crime Wave

Tomorrow, the Judiciary Committee will hear testimony from Americans who lost loved ones to criminal alien violence. On Sunday’s Meet The Press, Chuck Todd made a declaration that would surprise these devastated families: “We couldn’t find a single study that links violent crime and immigration.”

Apparently neither Mr. Todd nor his research staff ever thought to look up the government’s own 2011 report on criminal alien activity, published by the Government Accountability Office.

Breitbart News emailed Mr. Todd and his show to ask why the government’s own data, and a great deal more information, which would have disproven Mr. Todd’s sweeping declaration, was omitted. A staff aid to Mr. Todd replied: “no comment.”

Polio Wasn’t Vanquished, It Was Redefined

What is conveniently omitted from this heroic story is that the reason the number of polio cases in the U.S. dropped so precipitously following the mass introduction of the Salk vaccine in 1955 was not medical, but rather administrative. Yes it’s true, in 1952 there were 52,879 reported cases of polio in the U.S. And yes, in 1955 the number went down to 28,985, and by 1959 it had dropped to 8,425.3 But first of all, it’s important to note that the numbers were already declining significantly prior to the initial use of the Salk vaccine. In 1953, there were 35,592 cases of polio in the U.S.3 So there were other things going on in the U.S. at the time totally unrelated to the Salk vaccine.

More importantly, though, in 1954 the U.S. government simply redefined polio. Yes, the government can do that. It does this kind of stuff occasionally in order to help it meet its public policy objectives when it is unable to actually achieve them.

Appliance industry warns federal dishwasher regs would lead to dirty dishes

The recent proposal from the Department of Energy is meant to boost dishwasher efficiency by setting stricter limits on the amount of water each dishwasher can use, among other changes. Under the plan, washers could use only 3.1 gallons of water for a single load.

But an appliance industry group says the new measures would be counterproductive -- as they'd force users to run their dishwashers more, and hand-wash, just to get the same results, in turn using more water.

The mainstream media and their high-paying pharmaceutical sponsors make it seem like disease is random, striking people without warning. In this way of thinking, people start to feel like helpless victims. They can quickly become scared and lose touch with their bodies and minds. They start lining up for routine medical checks and injections. Sometimes, fear-stricken patients end up submitting to barbaric medical practices like a mastectomy or hysterectomy. Yes, doctors now encourage women to anticipate cancer by cutting off and gutting out their healthy body parts!

Des Moines Register calls on Trump to drop out of 2016 race

Iowa's largest newspaper has called on Donald Trump to drop out of the 2016 presidential race amid the furor over the real estate magnate's weekend comments about Sen. John McCain's service during the Vietnam War.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

They must really be scared of Trump. He's leading the GOP polls, the best chance to win the White House, and still they want him gone!

The apparatchiks are hoping McCain's "star power" will prevail against Trump, but McCain's star is quite tarnished as the independent media covers the story about McCain's true background. Trump is right. Allowing yourself to get captured does not make you a hero. Fellow POWs imprisoned with McCain claim he wasn't tortured because McCain cooperated with the North Vietnamese, including making "Tokyo Rose" style propaganda for them! During his aviation career, McCain lost 5 US planes, making him an enemy ace! Then there was the "wet start" disaster and cover-up on the USS Forrestal. McCain was right at the heart of the denial of surviving POWs in Vietnam (so the US government could refuse to pay war reparations it had promised) . Then there was the Keating Five scandal, and finally, John McCain actually thought Sarah Palin would be a good Vice-President!

Family receives death threats after Big Pharma's illegal human experimentation leaves daughter permanently brain-damaged

It all began when young Jodie, who was about one year old at the time, was injected with a strange vaccine containing a mixture of MMR, which her parents had consented to, as well as five other vaccines including live oral polio vaccine. Jodie's parents had specifically instructed medical staff at the Aldermoor Surgery health clinic in Southampton, UK, not to administer any additional vaccines besides MMR to Jodie, but they did so anyway.

Immediately after receiving the mystery jab, which her parents weren't even told had been administered, Jodie quickly declined into a high fever and stopped eating -- she had previously been a normal, healthy young child. Jodie's fever turned to extreme pain, which then turned into seizures and double incontinence, meaning Jodie could no longer control her bladder and bowel movements.

Greece to confirm construction of natural gas pipeline jointly with Russia — minister

Greece supports the plan of building a natural gas pipeline jointly with Russia to be an extension of the Turkish Stream gas pipeline, new Minister of Productive Reconstruction, Environment and Energy of Greece Panos Skourletis said on Monday at the ceremony of responsibilities’ handover from the former minister Panagiotis Lafazanis. Skourletis said the plan of building a new Greek-Russian gas pipeline in the territory of Greece is supported. It opens new opportunities to be used, the minister said.

Jeb Bush defends McCain, but supported Swift Boat attacks against Kerry

But that outrage was missing ten years ago, when a political group attacked another Vietnam veteran -- then-Sen. John Kerry, the Democratic nominee who sought to unseat Bush's brother, the incumbent president, during the 2004 election.

Instead, Bush praised Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, the group that lobbed attacks questioning Kerry's service record in Vietnam -- attacks McCain unequivocally criticized in 2004 as "dishonest and dishonorable."

Federal Court Orders Securities and Exchange Commission to Release Documents Related to Chiquita’s Support of Terrorism in Colombia

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has been ordered by a federal appeals court to release nearly 10,000 records to a university research group investigating Chiquita Brands International’s support of a terrorist group in Colombia. The National Security Archive, based at The George Washington University in Washington, DC, had to sue to get the documents, which were requested under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). It took its case to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, which directed the SEC to release 9,257 pages of records produced by Chiquita related to the AUC payments.

Ex-NATO commander suggests WWII-style camps for radicalized Americans

Retired US General Wesley Clark suggested that radicalized youth in America and other Western nations should be segregated the way Nazi sympathizers were held in camps during World War II.

America and its allies need to get tougher on young men, who may become radical Islamists, said Clark, who is best known for leading NATO troops during the Kosovo war. The former Democratic presidential candidate made the comments in an interview on MSNBC in response to the shooting at a recruitment camp in Chattanooga, Tennessee, that left four Marines killed.

Ignoring the fact that the shooter in Chattanooga was (as all the other mass shooters) on prescription anti-depressants.

Revealed: Erdogan's Daughter Heads a Covert Hospital to Help ISIL Injured Members

A London-educated scion of wealthy family and the eldest daughter of totalitarian President Erdo?an, Sümeyye Erdo?an, more than once announced her intention to be dispatched to Mousl, Iraq’s once second-biggest city and ISIL's stronghold to do relief works as a volunteer which drew public ire and vast condemnation from Turkey’s opposition parties. Moreover, the Turkish opposition parties accuse the administration of Recep Tayyip Erdo?an of seeking diligently to hide the truth concerning numerous financial malfeasances Erdo?an son, Bilal Erdo?an, is involved.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Erdogan daughter is invloved in treating ISIL wounded people in secret hospitals in Turkey... His son is also involved in big business of running smuggling and theft operation of Syrian stolen goods shipped to Turkey...It's inconceivable that US government does not know about this..US media never talked about Turkey's involvement in supporting ISIS, which is a NATO country!

Netanyahu’s self-serving scare tactics: Why his Iran fear-mongering is riddled with contradictions

Prime Minister Netanyahu’s scare tactics aren’t a revelation of Iran’s power but of his own weakness in terms of the deal’s ratification. He expects the American people to believe impossible things about the Iranians. It’s not that there’s a single dictator like North Korea’s Kim Jong-un, who could be imagined perhaps to break with reality and commit suicide via nuclear. No, Netanyahu wants us to believe that a vast network of actors—the ayatollahs and the president and their advisors and staffs, the negotiators for the recent deal, their own staffs, et al—are all waiting for the day when they can end the comfort and power and wealth they’ve worked so hard to gain. To say that it strains credulity is an understatement. How much of what Netanyahu says is similarly overblown? Israel does face threats from groups at its borders. How do we evaluate those threats as Netanyahu describes them now that his capacity for insane hyperbole is fully known? Is Hamas the threat he says it is?

Shock Video Catches Another Top Planned Parenthood Doctor Selling Body Parts of Aborted Babies

A second shocking video in as many weeks has been released showing a top Planned Parenthood official discussing and arranging the sale of body parts of aborted babies. The first video shows Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, describing how Planned Parenthood sells the body parts of aborted unborn children and admitting she uses partial-birth abortions to supply intact body parts.

In this video, Mary Gatter, the Medical director at Planned Parenthood Pasadena and San Gabriel Valley in Calfiornia, discusses selling aborted baby body parts with undercover investigators posing as officials with a biotech company that acts as a middleman to sell aborted baby body parts to universities and other places that conduct such research. Gatter is a senior official within Planned Parenthood and is President of the Medical Directors’ Council, the central committee of all Planned Parenthood affiliate medical directors.

McCain and the POW cover-up

The sum of the secrets McCain has sought to hide is not small. There exists a telling mass of official documents, radio intercepts, witness depositions, satellite photos of rescue symbols that pilots were trained to use, electronic messages from the ground containing the individual code numbers given to airmen, a rescue mission by a special forces unit that was aborted twice by Washington – and even sworn testimony by two Defense secretaries that “men were left behind.” This imposing body of evidence suggests that a large number – the documents indicate probably hundreds – of the U.S. prisoners held by Vietnam were not returned when the peace treaty was signed in January 1973 and Hanoi released 591 men, among them Navy combat pilot John S. McCain.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The reason Hanoi did not release all the POWs is that the US failed to pay the reparations Nixon had promised to Vietnam to bring the war to an end. Hanoi held onto the POWs and the US Government decided it was cheaper to abandon the POWs and claim they had never existed.

US Military Seeks Reasons To Prolong Afghanistan Occupation

When the US attacked Afghanistan the purpose was to remove the Taliban government which had given guest status to the al-Qaeda leadership. Only a few weeks later, that job was done.

The alleged purpose of the occupation of Afghanistan then changed into hunting down al-Qaeda remnants. But those had already fled to Pakistan and elsewhere.

The US military instead started to hunt and kill former Taliban members even when those were just local farmers or former Taliban leaders who had given up any fighting and were willing to cooperate. This manhunt and the accompanying torture and killing of civilians revived the Taliban movement and a new revolt, now against the US occupation and its puppet government, started. The alleged purpose of the US military in Afghanistan changed again.

Big Pharma responsible for another mass shooting? SC church shooter took psych drugs before attack

Predictably, the mainstream and legacy media are using this tragedy as Exhibit A in their relentless push to paint the United States – whites, primarily – as racist, bigoted and intolerant. Unfortunately, and despite government statistics that actually show that whites are more commonly victims of so-called "hate" crimes – too many of our citizens will buy into the lie once more, making it ever more difficult for blacks and whites to reconcile.

But there is another predictable element to this mass shooting as well, and it is a connection getting far less attention in the press and in the political arena than it should: The alleged S.C. church shooter, Dylann Roof, was taking a dangerous mind-altering drug like virtually every other mass shooter ever since the late 1990s Columbine High School shooters, Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris.

Economist Marc Abela explains in the video that Japanese are awakening to the fact that their government serves interests other than those of the Japanese people:

Prime Minister Abe works for increasing and ongoing financial support of US unlawful and lie-began wars, including keeping the US military on bases in Japan.
Abe works for increased domestic surveillance similar to the US and UK.
Japan, as all former imperialist nations, creates what they use for money as debt. These mechanics are like adding negative numbers forever, and cause increasing, unpayable, tragic-comic total debt.
Despite Japan’s debt, they are a leading buyer of US debt with $1.2 trillion.
Robotics is not leveraged to decrease work time, but used to drive wages down and cause the people to work ever-increasing hours to survive.

Chattanooga Gunman Yet Another Mass Shooter on Antidepressants: Are You Even Surprised?

By now most people know the basic facts, at least what are called “facts” as reported by the mainstream media regarding the Tennessee mass shooting.

According to reports, last Thursday twenty-four-year-old Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez opened fire at a Chattanooga army recruiting center, injuring a police officer. Then he opened fire at a navy recruiting center about five miles away, killing four servicemen and wounding another three, one of whom later passed away. All told, five people lost their lives before the Abdulazeez was shot and killed by police.

By now, it shouldn’t surprise anyone much that the media is reporting Abdulazeez was depressed and taking medications for it, medications which he frequently started and stopped.

Driver Pulled Over for Hanging an Air Freshener in His Car

It all started when Michigan resident Richard Houghton was driving through Wisconsin, where he was pulled over by a police officer. The reason? He apparently had an air freshener hanging from his rear view mirror, and a GPS unit on his dash, which according to the police officer, were obstructing his view of the road and were thus illegal under state law. A subsequent search of the vehicle yielded a small amount of marijuana. Houghton was arrested and charged with 2 years of probation, and his car was seized under civil forfeiture laws.

China Finally Reveals How Much Gold It Has

For the first time in six years, China has updated the status of their national gold reserves. As part of their move to join the IMF’s basket of currencies, they were asked to come clean on the amount of gold they’ve accumulated in recent years. However, the numbers they’ve given have left investors feeling skeptical.

Officially, they now have 1,658 tons of gold. The last time that number was updated in April of 2009, it stood at 1,054 tons, which is roughly a 60% increase, and places their gold haul above Russia’s. That’s pretty impressive, but it falls far short of what investors had expected. When they first announced that they were going to reveal their stockpile two months ago, the most conservative estimates placed their gold holdings at 3000 tons, or double what they recently reported. Due to the fact that China is the largest gold producer, and nearly the largest gold importer, their current numbers are dubious at best.

"Our objective is not to challenge the existing system as it is but to improve and complement the system in our own way,” NDB President Kundapur Vaman Kamath said.

John McCain ‘Sang Like a Canary’ to the North Vietnamese©

Within the first four days of his capture, while in his initial interrogation (26-30 October 1967) at the Hoa Lo prison in Hanoi, and while recovering from his shootdown wounds in the North Vietnamese military hospital (31 October 1967 through mid-December 1967), John McCain provided military information far beyond that which the Code of Conduct – and that which other POWs, while undergoing extreme torture – refused to divulge to the enemy. Colonel Ted Guy, McCain’s Senior Ranking Officer (SRO) while they were both imprisoned at the Plantation prison complex in Hanoi, gathered information from various sources after the POWs were released in March 1973.

‘Songbird’ McCain: The evidence – in his own words, his fellow veterans, and his captors

On the other hand, according to one source, McCain’s collaboration may have had very real consequences. Retired Army Colonel Earl Hopper, a veteran of World War II, Korea and Vietnam, contends that the information that McCain divulged classified information North Vietnam used to hone their air defense system…McCain told his North Vietnamese captors, “highly classified information, the most important of which was the package routes, which were routes used to bomb North Vietnam. He gave in detail the altitude they were flying, the direction, if they made a turn… he gave them what primary targets the United States was interested in.” Hopper contends that the information McCain provided allowed the North Vietnamese to adjust their air-defenses. As result, Hopper claims, the US lost sixty percent more aircraft and in 1968, “called off the bombing of North Vietnam, because of the information McCain had given to them.”

McCain and the POW Cover-Up

John McCain, who has risen to political prominence on his image as a Vietnam POW war hero, has, inexplicably, worked very hard to hide from the public stunning information about American prisoners in Vietnam who, unlike him, didn’t return home. Throughout his Senate career, McCain has quietly sponsored and pushed into federal law a set of prohibitions that keep the most revealing information about these men buried as classified documents. Thus the war hero who people would logically imagine as a determined crusader for the interests of POWs and their families became instead the strange champion of hiding the evidence and closing the books.

How could this one article on a small website be the truth about McCain’s war record and everything else be total falsehood? The evidence was hardly overwhelming, with the piece being thinly sourced and written in a meandering fashion by an obscure author, but the claims were so astonishing that I made some effort to investigate the matter, though without any real success.

Comet-invader Philae goes silent, mothership Rosetta forced to retreat

The European Space Agency (ESA) has all but lost contact with its Philae lander on Comet 67P – and attempts to reestablish communications are being hampered by the rock itself.

Philae, which was dropped off onto the comet from its mothership Rosetta, has more or less been silent for days.

Rosetta, which still orbits Comet 67P, has been flying as low as 153km above the rock's surface as the spacecraft searched for a way to contact its Philae lander. But in the last week, the dust coming off the comet has obscured Rosetta's star trackers, which are used by the ESA team to navigate safely. As a result, the mothership has been shifted up into a higher orbit of between 170 and 190km from the surface.
