Products that Use Aborted Fetal Tissue: Pepsi, Kraft, Nestle and More

On Feb 28th, President Obama’s Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) ruled that PepsiCo’s use of cells derived from aborted fetal remains in their research and development agreement with Senomyx to produce flavor enhancers falls under “ordinary business operations.”

Planned Parenthood admits it manipulates rules on fetal organ sales to maximize profit

But she also said that “adjustments that facilitate fetal tissue donations rarely occur at our few clinics that offer women this service,” prompting David Daleiden of the pro-life Center for Medical Progress to declare that she had proved the point of his group’s investigation — that “adjustments occur.”

Several of the videos showed Planned Parenthood representatives haggling over prices — and in one case joking about wanting a Lamborghini — with people they thought represented biotech firm purchasers.

Flashback: It's a record-breaking winter so far

More than 30 weather stations around New Zealand have also had daily maximum temperature recordings that are either the lowest ever recorded, or at least in the top four coldest for July.

Kaitaia, Kerikeri and Warkworth have all recorded their lowest July temperatures. On Saturday Kaitaia experienced 0°C, while a chilly Sunday brought Kerikeri to -0.7°C and Warkworth to -2.3°C.

Te Kuiti plummeted to -4.9°C overnight on Sunday, marking it as the coldest July temperature for the town since records began in 1959. In fact, Te Kuiti has felt its two lowest July temperatures on record over the past three days.

In Greymouth a -2.6°C snap on July 9 put it in the record books as the coldest July temperature there since records begin in 1947.

Yemeni Foreign Minister Riad Yassin today denied reports that his “government-in-exile” is engaged in negotiations on ending the Saudi war against the Shi’ite Houthis, saying that not only were there no such meetings, but that they would never negotiate with the Houthis.

Yassin went on to insist that his group still demands that the Houthis and all other rival factions unconditionally submit to a UN Resolution which demands that they unilaterally disarm and surrender all territory to his faction before any discussion of future political participation is possible.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yassin, and the military assaults by the US-enabled Saudi military have just made the possibility of a negotiated peace with the Houthis absolutely impossible; of course, that was the goal all along.

One has to wonder, during this time of economic hardship for Riyadh, if this Saudi military misadventure can be extended for much longer, or if the US military will be taking over shortly.

But I would strongly caution the US government that this is going to be one hell of a war to "sell" to a very war weary and war skeptical country, many of whom couldn't even place Yemen on a map.

FLASHBACK - The Death Of Vincent Foster - The Gun Color Swindle by the FBI

It is clear that Lisa Foster was shown a gun she recognized, even though that gun she was shown was clearly NOT the gun in the photograph of Vincent Foster's hand in the ABC TV photograph.

Were the death of Vincent Foster a true suicide, there would be no need to ask the FBI to help manufacture evidence. Everything would fit together. Given that the FBI did indeed show the wrong gun to Lisa Foster, we must conclude that we may not be dealing with a real suicide. And if we are not dealing with a real suicide, then we are dealing with a murder!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am reposting this in light of everyone cheering the fact that the FBI is investigating Hillary Clinton for espionage. The jubilation is premature because the FBI's past history with the Clintons is one of protecting them by covering up the murder of White House Deputy Vincent Foster.

I fully expect the FBI will go through the motions of an investigation and declare Hillary innocent of any wrongdoing, because as these official FBI documents prove, that is what the FBI's real job is; to protect the ruling class!

NATO stages huge airborne drill in Europe, says 'acting in purely defensive manner' (VIDEO)

The largest NATO airborne drills in Europe since the end of the Cold War aim to reassure allies against external aggression threat, American generals said, adding that paratroopers landing in Germany are acting in a “purely defensive” manner.
Parachutists of the US-based 82nd Airborne Division began a NATO exercise in Hohenfels near Nuremberg on Wednesday, where joint multinational training command of 1,100 soldiers from seven NATO countries are holding exercise under the command of the US 7th Army.

Syriza leading opinion polls ahead of new Greek elections despite rebellion and Alexis Tsipras stepping down

A poll in the leftist newspaper Efimerida ton Syntakton gave Syriza a slim 3.5 point lead over the conservative party New Democracy.

The survey, conducted by ProRata, said 23 per cent of voters would support Syriza, while 19.5 per cent would vote for New Democracy.

A previous ProRata poll in July showed a wider gap in Syriza’s favour, putting the party at 26 per cent compared to 15 per cent for New Democracy.

Popular Unity, the party of ex-Syriza dissidents, were supported by 3.5 per cent of voters. A party must win at least 3 per cent of the vote to enter the Greek Parliament.

Trump targeted by hostile anti-American propagandists

At first, the mainstream media pundits and political analysts lectured the American public about how Trump is such an unserious, unprofessional baffoon who shouldn’t even be considered as a candidate. Trump’s polling numbers, widespread media attention, and overwhelming support from millions of alienated, disgruntled Americans, not to mention his brilliant performance in the GOP presidential debate and extremely effective campaign strategy, have forced the elite anti-White mass media to pursue a variety of cowardly, pathetic strategies to discredit, marginalize, and eventually sabotage Trump’s thus far very successful presidential campaign.

Now, for example, in a weak attempt to discredit Trump, the SPLC is claiming the White nationalist movement is rallying behind the GOP front-runner, particularly since Trump released his Immigration Reform That Will Make America Great Again plan.

BEX ALERT - Donald Trump's ex-wife once said Trump kept a book of Hitler's speeches by his bed

According to a 1990 Vanity Fair interview, Ivana Trump once told her lawyer Michael Kennedy that her husband, real-estate mogul Donald Trump, now a leading Republican presidential candidate, kept a book of Hitler's speeches near his bed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, Trump's ex-wife's lawyer told a supermarket tabloid reporter that Trump had a book by Hitler. And of course we should all believe it is true!

Misty Copeland Makes Her Broadway Debut

Just one week after becoming the first African-American principal dancer in American Ballet Theatre history, Misty Copeland announced another career milestone -- she would make her Broadway debut in the revival of “On The Town” on August 25th.

The 32-year-old dancer may be one of the top ballerinas on the planet, but she’s never publicly sang in her life. With only two weeks of prep and one “put-in” rehearsal, she was scared.

“Stepping into this theater for the first time -- I felt nervous and it’s been a long time since I’ve really felt nervous about performing,” Copeland said. “Having one ‘put-in’ rehearsal with the full cast did not feel like enough before making my debut.”

Watch the video above to see Copeland’s journey through rehearsals until her opening night.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I don't normally cover arts stories on this blog, but I have seen an interview of this woman, and for me, she represents everything still right and beautiful about this country.

She has worked damned hard, with incredible determination, to get where she is, in the very tough, and competitive dance environment, has taken advantage of every opportunity she has been given, and gives back as a dance coach and mentor to young dancers.

Bravo, Ms. Copeland: well done, and may there be many more artistic triumphs in your future!

If you're outraged over the killing of Cecil the Lion, but NOT over Planned Parenthood murdering babies for organ harvesting, you're mentally ill

Has the modern world gone so completely mad that human life is now seen as completely irrelevant, while the lives of animals are elevated to a status beyond even humans? Cecil the lion's death is admittedly disheartening, especially if the details surrounding his death are true as they're being presented in the media. But what about unborn human life being terminated for purposes of eugenics and greed?

Watch the undercover Planned Parenthood videos for yourself to see these completely heartless individuals discuss unborn baby organs as if they were nothing more than automotive parts being sold on eBay to the highest bidder.

But shortly afterwards, the company went bankrupt amidst allegations that political pressure had played a role in ensuring that it received these loans.

Ashley Madison abusing DMCA “to put genie back in the bottle,” EFF says

The online exposure of the Ashley Madison cheating sites' membership data has, to say the least, shaken the Internet like a giant earthquake.

Many of the site's members have been unmasked as one of the millions of cheaters searching for an affair. Some have committed suicide. Extortionists have taken advantage of those fearing being named. And now it appears that the site's Canadian owner, Avid Life Media, is misusing the Digital Millennium Copyright Act in a bid to make people unpublish the data that lists millions of Ashley Madison members' e-mail addresses and other information. The problem with this scenario is that such data isn't subject to copyright, the Electronic Frontier Foundation says.

Faurisson’s Exposure of the Holocaust Hoax

In 1951 the Jew Léon Poliakov, who had been part of the French delegation at the Nuremberg trial (1945-1946), stated his conclusion that we had at our disposal an overabundance of documents for all points of the history of the Third Reich, with the exception of one point alone: the “campaign to exterminate the Jews”. For this, he wrote, “No document remains,perhaps none has ever existed” (Bréviaire de la haine, Paris, Calmann-Lévy, 1974 [1951], p. 171; English version: Harvest of Hate, New York, Holocaust Library, 1979, revised and expanded edition)\.

YES – ANIMALS SUFFER FROM GENETICALLY MODIFIED FOODS, SAYS PRIMATOLOGIST JANE GOODALL

The Primatologist warned consumers at a National Press Club news conference to take heed when animals respond poorly to GMO diets. She also urged governments to impose stronger safeguards on genetically modified organisms.
Goodall warned:

“Animals tell us something. If the animals have suffered this way [from GMOs], potentially for us, let’s listen to what they’re telling us. Let’s take heed.”
Goodall has joined forces with attorney Steven Druker in a book he penned to disclose the dangers of GM organisms on animals. Since much of the GM soy and corn grown in the US ends up in animal feed, she urges us to notice what happens to the animals once they’ve consumed a biotech-altered diet.

VIDEO: COP SLAMS MOM’S FACE TO THE GROUND AS SHE DROPPED HER KIDS OFF AT SCHOOL OVER TINTED PLATE COVER

As Liz Vargas was walking her daughter into school on November 5, officer Kevin Fitzpatrick heroically swooped in to protect the citizens of Tampa from Vargas’ tinted license plate cover.

Not having done anything wrong, and upset that she was being harassed in front of her children, Vargas voiced her discontent.

“Then because I was in my pj’s he called me bummy, and he accused me of illegal drugs, that’s why I got argumentative,” Vargas said of the incident.

Within 34 seconds of his encounter with Vargas, Fitzpatrick grabbed her wrist and had slammed the innocent woman to the ground, face first.

After being brutally assaulted in front of her child by police, Vargas retained attorney Brett Szematowicz.

“At best that could be explained away that he thought there was an officer safety issue with her pointing up at the sky, but he never said he ordered her back in the car, he never said he felt threatened by her actions at any point,” Szematowicz said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

People of Florida, please vote with your feet; move out of the state, and let your tax dollars be spent somewhere else where, at least, this kind of "in your face" police brutality is a little less frequent.

If this is how Tampa police interpret "to protect and serve", now is one hell of a good time to "get out of Dodge".

THE ONE CHART THE MILITARY-INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX IS HOPING MEAN REVERTS

While most of the world will be hoping the following chart never (ever) mean-reverts to its previous historically devastating highs, there is one group that is 'banking' on it... The Military-Industrial Complex...

Of course, as Ron Paul recently explained recently, the current enemy of choice is Russia:

"The people have to have the propaganda convert them into someone they hate, so they can hate...so you had to have a Saddam Hussein, an Ayatollah, or somebody else, and right now it’s Russia."
Paul goes on to note that while the Cold War may have fueled the need for American military spending, its end has left Washington without a clear enemy to demonize. The US government is now spreading disinformation about subjects like the Ukraine crisis in order to paint Russia as a villain.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Russians are not the enemy, and the narrative spun by the White House, Pentagon, and State Department have absolutely no relationship with reality here.

But of course, nothing coming out of DC has any relationship with reality anymore; this is why we can no longer believe anything the US government tells you.

MICROSCOPIC 3D-PRINTED “SMART” FISH NANOBOTS TO SWIM IN BLOODSTREAM & REMOVE TOXINS

A newly-developed technology at the University of California- San Diego called microfish will one day allow for tiny 3D-printed “smart” microbots to travel through a person’s bloodstream and deliver drugs to specific places in the body, as well as sense and remove toxins.

The high-tech fish are extremely small, smaller than the width of a human hair. The revolutionary devices are extremely easy to create, but are remarkably high tech, with the ability to act as both a toxin sensing and detoxifying robot, according to researchers at UC-San Diego.

“We have developed an entirely new method to engineer nature-inspired microscopic swimmers that have complex geometric structures and are smaller than the width of a human hair. With this method, we can easily integrate different functions inside these tiny robotic swimmers for a broad spectrum of applications,” said the co-first author Wei Zhu, a nanoengineering Ph.D. student at UC San Diego.

"Stay quiet about what you saw"

New Orleans firemen riding out the storm high up in an office building saw levees collapse dooming the city.

They were ordered not to tell what they saw when they appeared before a Congressional committee hearing about the devastation.

Why not?

The epically corrupt US Army Corps of Engineers was trying, unsuccessfully it eventually turned out, to find the basic fact: Their design, construction and maintenance was responsible for the deaths of thousands of people (it you count the people who died after the storm from the shock and trauma) and the near obliteration of a great American city. - See more at: http://www.brasschecktv.com/videos/new-orleans-1/stay-quiet-about-what...

TV licence evader refused to pay because the 'BBC covered up facts about 9/11 and claimed tower fell 20 minutes before it did'

District Judge Stephen Nicholls said: 'This is not a public inquiry into 9/11. This is an offence under section 363 of the Communications Act.'

He said he had difficulty sitting in the magistrates’ court as he 'did not believe he had the power to rule under the terrorism act'.

'I believe the BBC, who are directly funded by the licence fee, are furthering the purposes of terrorism and I have incontrovertible evidence to this effect. I do not use this word lightly given where I am'

He said: 'Even if I accept the evidence you say, this court has no power to create a defence in the manner which you put forward.'

Sentencing, Judge Nicholls said: 'Mr Rooke puts the basis of his defence under Section 15 of the Terrorism Act, effectively asking the court to find the BBC is a terrorist organisation and that if he continues to pay them he himself is committing a criminal offence.

Pentagon’s New “Law of War” Manual “Reduces Us to the Level of Nazis”

The Pentagon’s new Law of War Manual – a 1,200-plus page document issued in June by the Defense Department’s Office of the General Counsel – is barbaric.

The Manual is so bad that one of the leading experts on the law of war (Dr. Francis Boyle) – who wrote the Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act of 1989, the American implementing legislation for the 1972 Biological Weapons Convention, served on the Board of Directors of Amnesty International, and teaches international law at the University of Illinois, Champaign – says :

This Law of War Manual reduces us to the level of Nazis. There’s no other word for it.

Boyle also says the Manual:

Reads like it was written by Hitler’s Ministry of War.

Public Urged To Prepare For Hurricanes Ignacio, Jimena

As a pair of hurricanes – Ignacio and Jimena – head towards the Hawaiian Islands, state officials are urging the public to prepare over the weekend.

Hurricane Ignacio is the closer of the two at 785 miles east southeast of Hilo. Ignacio is moving toward the northwest near 8 mph, and this motion is expected to continue for the next couple of days. In a media release issued by the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency, officials say the current track remains “highly uncertain, however, all islands are within the cone of uncertainty so should prepare for impact early next week.”

Hurricane Jimena Could Become a Category 5 in the Eastern Pacific

Jimena strengthened into a Category 4 hurricane early Saturday morning.

Hurricane Jimena is located over 1,200 miles southwest of the southern tip of Baja California.

Further intensification is possible and Jimena could become a Category 5 hurricane sometime this weekend.

For now, this system is no threat to land the next five days as it tracks westward behind Ignacio.

It's far too early to know if this system may eventually become a threat to Hawaii. Check back for updates.

Holocaust Remembrance:

Holocaust remembrance is not, as its supporters claim, a noble effort motivated by sincere concern for humanity. Instead, this relentless campaign is an expression of Jewish-Zionist power, and is designed to further Jewish-Zionist interests ... Jewish death and suffering do not deserve to be venerated more than the death and suffering of non-Jews. The Holocaust remembrance campaign deserves scorn, not support, because it is a one-sided effort that serves narrow Jewish and Israeli interests and bolsters Jewish-Zionist power.

Natalie Portman: Holocaust is no more tragic than other genocides

Holocaust survivor advocates harshly criticized Natalie Portman on Sunday, after the Israeli-born actress/ director stated that the Shoah is no more tragic than other genocides and questioned its prominence in Jewish education. In an interview with The Independent published on Friday, the American movie star questioned prominence given to Holocaust education at the expense of other mass murders. "I think a really big question the Jewish community needs to ask itself, is how much at the forefront we put Holocaust education. Which is, of course, an important question to remember and to respect, but not over other things," she was quoted as saying. She recalled learning about the Rwandan Genocide during a visit to a museum and being shocked that while the Holocaust figured prominently into her education, a contemporary genocide did not.

British police have received a criminal complaint for incitement against a musician who performed the quasi-Nazi quenelle salute to spite "Zionists," and suggested that the Nazi gas chambers during the Holocaust did not really exist. The Campaign Against Antisemitism group reported Wednesday that an unnamed party filed a complaint this week against Alison Chabloz, a performer at the Edinburgh Festival - one of the Scottish capital's main cultural events - after she posted to Twitter a photo of herself performing the quenelle.

Neighbors demand end to killing of chickens in Jewish ritual

Feathers flew in Manhattan court Tuesday as a group of residents demanded that a judge stop the "unsanitary'' Jewish religious ritual of slaughtering chickens on the sidewalk during Yom Kippur ... Some Jewish people believe that the September ritual Kaporos absolves one's sins with the sacrifice of a chicken. Rabbi Shea Hecht, a human rights commissioner under former Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, was in court to call the lawsuit "an attack on our religious freedom." But Marino's 19 clients - from the Borough Park and Crown Heights neighborhoods in Brooklyn where the ritual takes place - say the resulting "stench, litter, blood, feces and feathers" pollute city streets.

Officer fires weapon after crash, shoots baby in toe

KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

A police officer fired shots after his motorcycle was rammed Friday, and a baby was struck in the toe by a bullet from the officer's service weapon.

Two men are in custody and two infants were involved in the incident. No one in the suspect vehicle fired at the officer.

The motorcycle officer attempted to stop a red Dodge SUV with tinted windows for speeding at Highway 71 and 31st Street. The vehicle sped off, and the officer did not pursue the vehicle.

About 30 minutes later, the same officer received information that led him to find the SUV in the 5200 block of Wabash Avenue, police said.

NASA selects New Horizons’ next destination after Pluto

After flying by Pluto on July 14th, NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft has a new destination. The mission team has selected another object in the Kuiper Belt — the region of icy bodies that orbits the edge of the Solar System — for the probe to explore next.

The spacecraft's new potential target is called 2014 MU69; it's a much smaller object than Pluto and orbits the Sun nearly 1 billion miles beyond the dwarf planet. 2014 MU69 is an ideal candidate for further exploration, because it will cost less fuel to reach than other Kuiper Belt objects (KBOs), said New Horizons principal investigator Alan Stern, in a statement. Using less fuel to get to the object means more will be available to power the probe’s data-gathering instruments. The images and information gathered by New Horizons will give scientists a much better understanding of the worlds at the fringes of our Solar System.

Ron Paul on ‘Unprivileged Belligerents’ – The US War On Journalists

The Defense Department’s new Law of War manual, which provides guidance to military commanders in time of war, advises that journalists they consider “unprivileged belligerents” can be either removed from military facilities or even detained indefinitely without charge. The problem is we are in an endless, undeclared war and the provision is sufficiently vague to potentially include any effective critic of US military action. Today’s Ron Paul Liberty Report looks at this disturbing new development

Upcoming Labour leader: We should quit NATO, be friends with Russia

Jeremy Corbyn added: "I have criticisms of NATO, it's a Cold War organisation and it should have been wound up in 1990 along with the Warsaw pact".

THE POLICE: OUR ENEMIES IN BLUE?

The police are specialists in coercive force. Their distinguishing characteristic is the combination of surveillance and violence to make people do what people with power want them to do. That usually gets described in terms enforcing the law, but what I found in my research is that the real distribution of power is a much better indicator of how the police will act in any given situation. On the whole, they behave in ways that serve the interests of the powerful at the expense of the rest of us.

Germany against deploying peacekeepers in Donbas — foreign ministry

Commenting on the statement of Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko on the matter, Schaefer said: "We know that the Ukrainian authorities support the deployment of armed international mission [in Ukraine’s east]. It has been discussed for months already, mostly behind closed doors. The issue was once again raised by President Poroshenko in Brussels yesterday."
Schaefer stressed that Germany is interested in the full implementation of the Minsk agreement and peace in Donbas. "At the moment, however, we are not convinced that arming OSCE [Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe] observers or providing them with armed guards would really contribute to the fulfillment of these goals," Schaefer noted. "We do not think that ensuring the activity of observers with the use of force and arms will lead to greater security," he added.

Russian Civic Chamber member speaks about Kiev’s new "blasphemous propaganda tricks"

"Recently Ukraine began to use, I would say, a blasphemous propaganda trick: they take photos, video footage of the shelling of Ukrainian territories of Donbas and present them to the international community, they show them on TV, accompanying all this with inscriptions about the Donbas militias shelling themselves," Grigoriev told a meeting of the working group on the legal analysis of legislative procedures and legal acts passed in Ukraine on Friday. The group operates under the aegis of State Duma speaker Sergey Naryshkin.
"We all understand that, if someone, some formation is striving for self-determination, it would be utterly absurd to begin this self-determination with the shelling of 16,000 of its facilities," the expert said, adding, that, according to his estimates, about 16,000 facilities have been shelled in the Donbas region.

The Illusion of Choice: 90% of American Media Controlled by 6 Corporations

Waking Times

It is worth repeating again and again that the bulk of America’s mainline media is owned and controlled by a mere 6 corporations. This, of course, means that unless you’re already consciously avoiding these mainline media sources, then most of the news and entertainment that makes it onto your screen and into your mind comes from a small pool of corporate sources, all of which play important roles in delivering propaganda, social programming and perpetual crisis narratives to the public.

3 Things Sheeple Do That You Don’t Have To

Do you ever get that feeling like you’re surrounded by automatons, people who merely mimic life, without really living it? Sheeple, as they may be called, are otherwise ordinary folks who’ve adapted particularly well to the workforce/consumer/obedience training agenda. They’ve been taught to be docile, foolish and easily led. They’re particularly keen at following mainstream narratives and adapting to group-think and group-behaviors.
