"As news organizations are increasingly driven by a bottom-line mentality, the news we get becomes more and more sensational. What is the difference between Time and Newsweek? Between ABC, NBC, and CBS News? Between the Washington Post and the New York Times? For all practical purposes, none. The concentration of media power means that Americans increasingly get their information from a few sources who decide what is "news." -- Oliver Stone

Here are some State Department talking points on Syria for cable news anchors:
1) Keep mentioning the barrel bombs.
Do not mention how their use was pioneered by the Israeli Air Force in 1948, and how they were used by the US Air Force in Vietnam in Operation Inferno in 1968. Keep repeating, “barrel bombs, barrel bombs” and stating with a straight face that the Syrian regime is using them “against its own people.” Against its own people. Against its own people. Against its own people.
The UK government has said it intends to change legislation in order to prevent local councils divesting from the arms trade and Israeli human rights abuses.
Announcing the plans, a Conservative spokesperson said that “Labour’s Jeremy Corbyn and John McDonnell, alongside Labour-affiliated trade unions, are urging councils to use their procurement and pension policies to punish both Israel and the UK defence industry.”
Last week, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump released his plan for changing the tax code. Trump wants big across the board tax cuts, with the largest tax cuts going to the wealthy. He claimed that his tax cut won't lead to a loss of revenue since it would lead to a huge spurt of economic growth. His number was 6.0 percent annual growth over the next decade, topping Jeb Bush's 4.0 percent growth rate by two full percentage points.
The ongoing strikes on ISIS positions in Syria have undermined the terrorists' supply system, the Russian General Staff has said.
"In the opinion of the Russian Armed Forces' General Staff, the strikes delivered by our aircraft on ISIS militants have disrupted the supply system of this terrorist organization and have done significant damage to the infrastructures used for training terrorists in Syria," Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov told reporters on October 4.
The draft resolution, which coordinates the efforts of all the forces opposed to Islamic State and other terror groups, was proposed to UN SC members by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov at the Council's ministerial meeting held on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York on Sept.30.
The US will veto the Russian proposal and submit their own proposal calling for the removal of Assad... which Russia will veto.
Guthrie noted that while Clinton had apologized for using a private email, she also kept saying that it was an invented issue used by Republicans to attack her. “And I guess my question to you is, which is it?” she said. “If you’re blaming the Republicans, some might wonder how genuine is that apology?”
“Well, actually it’s both,” Clinton said. “I mean, I’m sorry that I made a choice that has resulted in this kind of situation, and I’ve said I’ve made a mistake. Obviously if I had to do it over again, I wouldn’t. It was allowed and everybody has confirmed that. But it’s also, as we now know very clearly, the way that the Republicans are trying to bring my– as they admit– poll numbers down.”
Back in 1996, when Bill Clinton was running for re-election, he authorized the transfer of highly sensitive technology to China. This technology had military applications and allowed China to close the gap in missile performance with the United States. The transfers were opposed and severely criticized by the Defense Department.
At the same time Bill Clinton was transferring this technology to China, huge donations began to pour into his re-election campaign from the US companies allowed to sell the technology to China, and from American citizens of Chinese descent. The fact that they were US citizens allowed them to donate to political campaigns, but it later emerged that they were acting as conduits for cash coming in from Asian sources, including Chinese Intelligence Agencies! The scandal became known as China-gate!
This establishes a history of the Clintons treating US secrets as their own personal property, selling them to raise money for campaigns.
Now then, let us consider a private email server with weak security, at least one known totally open access point, no encryption, and outside the control and monitoring systems of the US government, on which are parked many of the nation's most closely guarded secrets! It is already established that Hillary's email was hacked. One hacker named Guccifer provided copies of emails to Russia Today, which published them. Another hacker is reported to be offering 32,000 of Hillary's emails for the sum of $500,000. Security experts agree that Hillary's server had worse security than the Ashley Madison website!
Now, consider a charitable foundation owned by the Clintons (which actually does very little charitable work). Being a charitable foundation, it is allowed to accept "donations" from foreign sources, and roughly 40% of the cash that has poured into the Clinton Foundation has come from foreign sources. Many of those foreign sources received preferential treatment from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, sufficient for attorney Larry Klayman to file a RICO lawsuit against the foundation (which as of last report was thrown out of court by a Clinton-appointed judge who refused to recuse himself over the obvious conflict of interest)!
Easy means of delivering secrets. Easy means of accepting payment! And now there is confirmation that Hillary did have a private "off the books" spy network, centered on Sidney Blumenthal, while she was secretary of state!
This is a perfect setup to repeat the 1996 selling of secrets for cash. In other words, a perfect espionage operation, running out the US State Department, with the weak email server providing the secrets and a charitable foundation to accept and launder the payments! Hillary doesn't have to physically steal the files, the way Jonathan Pollard did. Hillary doesn't have to scratch an X on a mailbox, the way Aldrich Ames did. Hillary doesn't have to tape bundles of stolen documents underneath a park bridge, like Robert Hannsen did!
It is time to look past the small scandal of the private email server at what may be a far larger scandal hidden behind it!
And the longer the government and corporate media avoids this question, the more complicit they look!
US Defence Secretary Ashton Carter said Monday that Russia is pursuing a "losing strategy" in Syria and that it must live up to its commitments in Ukraine. . .
. . ."Russia has escalated the civil war, putting further at risk the very political resolution and preservation of Syria's structure of future governance it says that it wants," Carter said at the Center for Strategic Studies and Defence.
"It remains my hope that Vladimir Putin will see that tethering Russia to a sinking ship is a losing strategy, and will decide to confront the threat presented by (IS) instead of continuing its unilateral airstrikes against Assad's opposition."
(Note: The headline on the MSN homepage is "US: Russia Losing In Syria")
Jerusalem (AFP) - Israel barred Palestinians from Jerusalem's Old City Sunday as violence spread after two Israelis were stabbed to death, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke of "a fight to the death against Palestinian terror".
"These steps include, among others, speeded up demolition of terrorists' homes," he said in a video address in Hebrew distributed by his office.
NOTICE AND WARNING; ENTERING THE TEMPLE MOUNT AREA IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN BY JEWISH LAW DUE TO THE SACRED NATURE OF THE SITE- ISRAEL CHIEF RABBINATE
There's no missing these signs that have been in place since Israel came into being; and there has been no change whatsoever in the position of the country’s religious authority which interprets the Torah and advises the government of the day.
With an occupying army waging war in Iraq and Afghanistan, with military bases and corporate bullying in every part of the world, there is hardly a question any more of the existence of an American Empire. Indeed, the once fervent denials have turned into a boastful, unashamed embrace of the idea.
At one point the interviewer mentioned that Russian airstrikes could be “hitting people we’ve trained,” but Trump interrupted him by stating: “We are talking about people we don’t even know!”
“The rebel group we have no idea … I was talking to a general two days ago, he said: ‘We have no idea who these people are.’ We are training people, we don’t know who they are. We are giving them billions of dollars to fight Assad,” Trump said.
“We are fighting Assad and fighting for people, helping people ...we even don’t understand who they are. And they may be worse than Assad. They may be worse,” Trump reiterated. However, he emphasized that he was “not saying Assad is a good guy.”
Trump stressed that he has nothing against the Russian anti-terrorist operation in Syria.
“I like that Putin is bombing the hell out of ISIS,” Trump said, adding that he believes that the target of the airstrikes is indeed “going to be ISIS.”
On the following day, the Saudi Press Agency reported that anti-tank guided missiles had been found aboard a boat that was intercepted 150 miles (240 km) southeast of the Omani city of Salalah on 27 September. It said 54 BGM-71 TOW anti-tank guided missiles (ATGMs), 18 Konkurs ATGMs, four "direct fire systems", and three launchers had been found on the vessel.
It said the vessel was registered in the name of an Iranian and had been inspected and granted a fishing license by the ports and customs organisation in Iran's Sistan and Baluchistan province.
The US Navy subsequently put out a slightly different version of events, telling the AP that the dhow was intercepted on 26 September by a vessel operating as part of the multinational Combined Maritime Forces (CMF).
It said the naval vessel was from one of the Gulf countries that are part of the coalition currently fighting to re-install Yemen's ousted president (Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, or the United Arab Emirates).
Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio called for a more aggressive approach to Russia on Friday, including new sanctions against major officials and companies.
During an appearance at a national security forum in Iowa, the Florida senator called Russian President Vladimir Putin a "gangster and a thug," adding "I stand by that phrasing."
Rubio said if he's elected, he'll seek additional visa bans and asset freezes, provide more assistance to Ukraine and limit diplomatic engagement with Moscow "on issues not essential to resolving the crisis in Ukraine."
"We are barreling toward a second Cold War," Rubio said. "The more our current president fails the test of leadership against Putin, the more important it becomes for our next president to pass it. And I will pass that test if I am given that opportunity."
Minister of information Omran al-Zoubi said the effectiveness of the air raids carried out by the Russian army in Syria have driven the armed terrorist groups and their backers crazy while they remained silence when the US announced its coalition which supposedly aimed at targeting the ISIS in Syria.
In an interview on the Syrian TV and reported by SANA, Minister al-Zoubi said the U.S.-led coalition is not serious and all of its raids on the ISIS brought no tangible results because the real purpose was not destroying the ISIS but on the contrary preserving it for as long as possible with the aim of achieving certain goals.
Bangladesh’s prime minister, Sheikh Hasina, on Sunday dismissed claims that the Islamic State was behind the fatal shootings of two foreign citizens last week, instead suggesting that the killings may have been the work of homegrown militants aligned with her political opponents in the Bangladesh Nationalist Party, or B.N.P.
At the heart of this new rhetoric by Monsanto is the popularity of technology and the status of science in our society. However, science and technology are not equivalent. Science is the systematized study of knowledge, while technology merely applies that knowledge – for good or for ill. Science and technology are all too often conflated both by the public and by scientists themselves. It cannot be overstated that upstream technological scientists are prioritized and favored while downstream toxicologists and the like are continuously monitored and intimidated because they threaten industry. (See Drs. Tyrone Hayes, Ignatio Chapela, and Gilles-Éric Séralini for just a few well-know examples of attacks on downstream scientists.) While downstream science, which may point out frightening truths about risks, can be unpleasant, upstream science is often full of the wonder and excitement of technology. The conflation of science and technology has been exploited by the GMO industry to support the acceptance of their products under the guise of scientific authority.
Alcairo said the breaking point came this summer when a local politician proposed a law that would require High Bridge Arms to video record every gun sale and submit a weekly report of ammunition sales to the police. If passed, the law would join several local gun control ordinances on the books in a city still scarred by the 1993 murder of eight in a downtown high-rise and the 1978 assassination of Mayor George Moscone and gay rights activist Harvey Milk.
"I'm not doing that to our customers. Enough is enough," Alcairo said. "Buying a gun is a constitutionally protected right. Our customers shouldn't be treated like they're doing something wrong."
The announcement prompted an outpouring of sympathy and anger online from gun enthusiasts - and a steady stream of customers eager to take advantage of going-out-of-business prices.
One question that's been asked repeatedly over the past thirteen months is why Washington has been unable to achieve the Pentagon's stated goal of "degrading and defeating" ISIS despite the fact that the "battle" pits the most advanced air force on the planet against what amounts to a ragtag band of militants running around the desert in basketball shoes.
Those of a skeptical persuasion have been inclined to suggest that perhaps the US isn't fully committed to the fight. Explanations for that suggestion range from the mainstream (the White House is loathe to get the US into another Mid-East war) to the "conspiratorial" (the CIA created ISIS and thus doesn't want to destroy the group due to its value as a strategic asset).
Citing a report by the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC)’s Intelligence Department, Nozar Shafi’i the spokesman for the National Security and Foreign Policy Committee of the Iranian Parliament (Majlis) said on Sunday that Rezaian was tasked with implementing a scenario orchestrated by a group of US Senators who believe that if the US can revive the relations it had with Tehran before the 1979 Islamic Revolution, the Iranian government could easily be toppled.
As mentioned in the report, said Shafi’i, Rezaian is an American national of Iranian origin, and a “very important element” for Washington, “so much so that the Americans are trying hard to secure his release.”
Once again the corporatocracy wins as the so-called "Trojan horse" Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement has been finalized. As WSJ reports, the U.S., Japan and 10 countries around the Pacific reached a historic accord Monday to lower trade barriers to goods and services and set commercial rules of the road for two-fifths of the global economy, officials said.
For the U.S., the TPP (reportedly) opens agricultural markets in Japan and Canada, tightens intellectual property rules to benefit drug and technology companies, and establishes a tightknit economic bloc to challenge China’s influence in the region (likely forcing their hand into separate trade agreements).
The US regime change policy for Syria has been a catastrophe. More than 200,000 killed and an entire country reduced to rubble at least partly because President Obama decided that "Assad has lost his legitimacy." How is it that the president of a country 6,000 miles away has the authority to decide whether another leader belongs in office or not? What if Rouhani in Iran decided that Obama had lost his legitimacy for killing a number of American citizens by drone without charge or trial? Would we accept that?
At least three years of US efforts to train rebels to overthrow the Syrian government has produced, as General Lloyd Austin, Commander of US Central Command, testified last month, "four or five" trained and vetted "moderates" in Syria. The $500 million appropriated for this purpose has disappeared.
Israel barred Palestinians from Jerusalem's Old City as violence spread after two Israelis were stabbed to death and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke of 'a fight to the death against Palestinian terror'.
Netanyahu convened his top security officials immediately after landing back in Israel yesterday from delivering a speech to the UN General Assembly.
'These steps include, among others, speeded up demolition of terrorists' homes,' he said in a video address in Hebrew distributed by his office.
The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) has admitted it faked dramatic footage of a volcanic eruption in Patagonia TV documentary. According to the BBC, the scene was created by merging footage of two separate incidents of volcanic eruptions occurring four years apart.
The first iOS malware capable of attacking both non-jailbroken and jailbroken devices has surfaced online.
The mobile malware nasty - YiSpecter - hooks into private APIs in the iOS system to implement malicious actions has been in the wild for at least 10 months, mostly in China and Taiwan, since November 2014 if not earlier.
YiSpecter uses a battery of unusual tricks to spread itself. Distribution tactics include hijacking of traffic from nationwide ISPs, a worm on Windows, and an offline app installation and a community promotion.
A priceless Roman arch is the latest monument to fall during Islamic State’s campaign of destruction in the ancient Syrian city of Palmyra.
Webmaster addition: This is just a PR stunt. Muslims have no reason to blow up a Roman arch. Israel, on the other hand, needs to see ancient monuments vanish form the face of the Earth to make the absence of such monuments from the stories of David and Solomon less "problematic!"
Alphabet, which took over as Google’s new holding company on Friday, has dropped the tech giant’s “Don’t Be Evil” mantra from its code of conduct. “Employees of Alphabet and its subsidiaries and controlled affiliates should do the right thing—follow the law, act honorably, and treat each other with respect,” the new code reads, noticeably dropping the famous motto.
The federal government uses very carefully manipulated numbers to cover up the crushing economic depression that is going on in this nation. For the month of September, the federal government told us that 142,000 jobs were added to the economy. If that was actually true, that would barely be enough to keep up with population growth. Sadly, the truth is that the real numbers were actually far worse than that.
When donating to charity, it is important to be careful and do diligent research on the organization that you will be donating to, because sadly, it is common for charities to be run by scammers. In the case of the New York-based National Children’s Leukemia Foundation, the organization brought in millions of dollars that were intended for children with leukemia, but it was recently discovered that just 1% of those donations actually went towards helping children with the disease.
A Russian-made MIG-29 fighter jet put two Turkish F-16 jets under radar lock on Turkish-Syrian border on Monday, the Turkish military has announced.
In a written statement issued on its website on Monday, the military said 10 F-16s scrambled to patrol the Turkish-Syrian border. During this mission, a MIG-29 placed two Turkish F-16s under radar lock for five minutes and 40 seconds. The military said it has not yet determined which country the MIG-29 belongs to.
I was doing some research yesterday and accidentally came across this bizarre speech from the FBI director giving a "a love letter to the ADL," as he called it, to the Anti-Defamation League. James Comey fawned: "Over the years, the partnership between the FBI and the ADL has grown stronger. Yes, we serve different functions, but we share common values and common goals. Your leadership in tracking and exposing domestic and international terrorist threats is invaluable. Your experience in hate crime prevention and investigations is essential. Your research has helped agents and analysts as they conduct threat assessments and prepare intelligence reports. If this sounds a bit like a love letter to the ADL, it is, and rightly so. Since 1913, you have advocated for fairness and equality. And, like you, we must always, always side with the good. That is why all new agents tour the Holocaust Museum... And we know why we must continue to stand together to stop those who would act against us.
I wish to pay my respects to the Victoria University academics who protested the mendacious talk last week by Israeli soldiers, Raphael Wein and Naftali Gross, who had taken part in the 2014 monstrous Israeli war crime, Operation Protective Edge against Palestinian families sealed in by land, sea and air.
Violent clashes broke out Sunday morning across the West Bank between Palestinian youths and Israeli security forces.
Palestinians report that since the terrorist attacks in Jerusalem's Old City, in which Nehemia Lavie and Aharon Benita were killed and two were wounded, in addition to a separate attack that left a 15-year-old teen wounded, more than 100 Palestinians were wounded by gunfire and teargas in clashes with the army. Palestinians also report attacks by settlers. Demonstrators are protesting the Israel Police ban on non-resident Palestinians from entering the Old City.
The Russians have unleashed their own version of “shock and awe” in Syria, and the brutal efficiency of their airstrikes against ISIS targets has stunned many observers around the globe. For more than a year, the Obama administration has claimed that its bombing campaign in Syria has been a “success”, and yet ISIS has continued to grow stronger and gain more territory. But now just over a few days the tide of the conflict appears to have turned. The whole world has gotten a chance to see what a global superpower can truly do to a bunch of radical Islamic terrorists when it is focused and determined.

Says Ousting Assad In Syria 'Going to Be the Same Thing'
by Jason Ditz, October 04, 2015

Speaking today on NBC’s Meet the Press, Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump cautioned against further intervention in Syria, noting that the US largely has no idea who these rebels they’ve been funding and arming are, and predicting that Syria would go the way of Libya and Iraq, toward more chaos, if Assad was ousted.
Major Brain Disorder on the part of our fearless leader and his moronic minions in the Pentagon!
I have no doubt that if Odumbo puts USAF planes and pilots in harms way and interferes with the Russian AF there will be a smackdown by Putin!
This is very dangerous and provocative!
The new escalations involve throwing dramatically more weaponry at “pro-US” rebel factions, only this time having the Pentagon do it instead of the CIA, and also launching more airstrikes out of the Incirlik Air Base in Turkey.
Officials say the hope is that, with more American warplanes in the air over a wider chunk of ISIS territory, that would make less territory for Russian warplanes to operate in, effectively hemming them in and limiting their ability to strike ISIS themselves.
Israeli fighter jets have launched airstrikes on an area in the central Gaza Strip while another Palestinian is shot to death by Israeli troops.
The early Monday attacks, which hit two sites belonging to the armed wing of the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas, were carried out after rockets were allegedly fired from the enclave towards an uninhabited area in southern Israel.
US Secretary of Defense Ash Carter has cited concerns that Russia may be hitting the wrong targets in Syria. Does Carter believe that a Syrian opposition group utterly and absolutely divorced from terrorist allegiances exists?
Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) on Sunday called the U.S. military's Saturday airstrike on its charity hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan a war crime and announced it was withdrawing all staff from the beleaguered area.
A Daesh victory was unacceptable for the Russians as the traditional custodians of Syrian Christians, for Daesh is very bad for Christians. Some were slaughtered and some had to flee. From this point of view, al Qaeda, al Nusra and similar extreme groups are not better.
WE ARE RAISING A NATION OF WEENY-FIED CHILDREN!! Yes, we are! And, we will eventually pay the price. EVERY one of the actions below in today’s ‘Murika is frowned upon, downright illegal or, subjects you parents to a visit from the State Gestapo, aka Child Protective Services.
There are a number of indications that Harper-Mercer had mental health or behavioral issues. His screen name on some social media sites was "lithium love." Lithium is used as a psychiatric medication.
Harper-Mercer graduated from The Switzer Learning Center in 2009, according to a graduation listing in The Daily Breeze newspaper. Switzer Center is a private, nonprofit school in Torrance, California, geared for special education students with a range of issues from learning disabilities, health problems and autism or Asperger's Disorder, according to the school's website.
In a December 15, 2001 press conference, President George W. Bush was asked an unexpected question about 9/11. In a remarkably delayed response, Bush exhibited both a verbal clue for deception, the failure to answer, and a visual clue called an anchor-point movement. The latter is when the anxiety raised by the question causes the person questioned to shift his body to relieve physical instability. As Bush replied, he shook his head, moved his hands, and seemed to be shuffling his feet uncomfortably.
Reporter: Do you agree or disagree with the RNC that [a question of your advanced knowledge of 9/11] borders on political hate speech?
Bush: Uh, yeah, there’s time for politics and, uh, you know… time for politics and, uh… I, uh, it’s an absurd insinuation.”
If the reporter had been a CIA interrogator, like any of the three authors of the book, this response would have raised an immediate red flag that the issue needed further examination.
Whether on not you think ISIS sleeper agents are embedded into newly emerging packs of Syrian refugees only to later surface in a Trojan Horse style attack against a Western nation or nations is possible or not doesn’t matter, because either way it’s a catch-22.
They forgot to include the side armor! Palm! Forehead! Decent interval!
WASHINGTON DC – The Pentagon declared that mine-resistant vehicles supplied to Kurdish Peshmerga forces provide “significant” protection, after a US television channel reported they lack side armor and that riding them was “suicide.”
In a press conference at the Valdai Discussion Club 2014 in answer to a question to a United States Journalist, President Vladimir Putin addressed his concerns regarding the US and their role in the middle east and ISIS. Although the film footage of the press conference has been banned, Live leaks released a copy of the press conference to the public. The words of Putin are transcribed below word for word from the video originally provided by Inessa S.
But while the Obama administration is frantically searching for a strategy, Putin’s air-squadrons are unleashing holy hell on the sociopaths, the head-choppers and the other assorted vipers that comprise the Islamic State.
Although Miller repeatedly asked Sgt. Hedrick to remove his knee because Miller believed that he was having a stroke, the off-duty cop ignored his pleas and accused him of being drunk without even bothering to smell his breath. A Marshall police officer later arrived at the scene and found Hedrick restraining the compliant elderly man on the ground. After placing the 70-year-old in handcuffs, the officer gave Miller a sobriety test and verified he was sober.
On Dec. 26, 2009, a U.S. Special Operations team flew from Kabul to Ghazi Khan village in the Narang district of Kunar province. They attacked three houses, where they killed two adults and eight children. Seven of the children were handcuffed before they were shot. The youngest was 11 or 12, three more were 12, and one was 15. Both the United Nations and the Afghan government conducted investigations and confirmed all the details of the attack. U.S. officials conducted their own inquiry, but no report was published and no U.S. military or civilian officials were held accountable. Finally, more than five years later, a New York Times report on Joint Special Operations Command’s (JSOC) Seal Team 6 named it as the U.S. force involved. But JSOC operations are officially secret and, to all practical purposes, immune from accountability. As a senior U.S. officer told the Times, “JSOC investigates JSOC, that’s part of the problem.”
After initially locking up more than 170 people in connection with the May 17 incident outside Twin Peaks restaurant, McLennan prosecutors have not charged anyone with the shooting deaths of nine people.
Investigators have not yet offered details about who shot who or whether police officers fatally shot anyone, though reports reviewed by The Associated Press indicate police bullets did hit at least one biker.
Four northern California students have been arrested for plotting to carry out a shooting at a high school, authorities said. Authorities took four unidentified students into custody after they uncovered their plan to shoot and kill faculty members and students at Summerville High School, the Tuolumne County Sheriff's Office said on Saturday.
Doctors Without Borders has a long history of collaborating with and defending terrorists. And even being terrorists. The issue came up just last month in relation to Hamas.
Its current attacks on America and collaboration with the Taliban are completely unacceptable. Doctors Without Borders' personnel are once again lying through their teeth, denying the facts put forward by US and Afghan personnel and covering up the use of medical facilities by the Taliban Jihadists as human shields.
Talk about desperation on the cusp of madness!
The Nobel Peace Prize winner lectures Russia about civilian casualties, then bombs a hospital in Afghanistan, and all they can think of doing is demonizing the victims!
"I've been collecting and assembling these since March of 2015 through August 2015 showing the effects of the drought in California is having on our reservoirs," Sacramento resident Ryan Griffith said in his Facebook post.
Médecins Sans Frontières has pulled its staff out of the crisis-hit Afghan city of Kunduz after a US airstrike on its hospital, labelled a war crime by the group.
MSF says 22 people were killed by the bombing, which Afghan officials now claim was in retaliation for fire from Taliban fighters hiding in the hospital. The president, Barack Obama, announced on Sunday he was launching a full investigation into the circumstances.
In a robust rejection of the allegation that Taliban fighters were sheltering in the hospital grounds, the MSF general director, Christopher Stokes, said: “Not a single member of our staff reported any fighting inside the MSF hospital compound prior to the US airstrike on Saturday morning.
“The hospital was full of MSF staff, patients and their caretakers. It is 12 MSF staff members and 10 patients, including three children, who were killed in the attack.”
Look for what should be there and isn't.
There are no dead combatants in the rubble, are there? Just dead doctors, dead nurses, and dead patients.
Writes Susan Keating in People magazine: “A woman will graduate Ranger School,” a general told shocked subordinates this year while preparing for the first females to attend a “gender integrated assessment” of the grueling combat leadership course starting April 20, sources tell People. “At least one will get through.”
And two did, by being given special treatment. Again, a general’s career takes precedence over the good of his troops. An old story.
Volkswagen's New Zealand division has quarantined 36 new vehicles with emissions-cheating diesel engines, but acknowledges there are likely to be hundreds more on our roads.
General manager Tom Ruddenklau says the company has halted the sale of 21 Tiguan SUVs and 15 Caddy vans, and is confident they are the only new VW vehicles in this country to have been caught up in the global scandal engulfing the German car-maker.
"Just to be on the safe side, we've isolated those from being sold until we've got a remedy - it's just something that's the responsible thing to do," he said this afternoon.
But he disclosed that there are likely to be hundreds of VW diesels of both those models and some others sold over several years in New Zealand fitted with the same four-cylinder EA 189 engine, although he was unable to identify those at this stage.
Smaller numbers of Audi and Skoda vehicles with the same engines were also likely to be affected.
The Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement could be finalised in just hours.
Japanese Economic and Fiscal Policy Minister Akira Amari told reporters in Atlanta progress had been made on a number of sticking points in the agreement - including dairy, a crucial issue for New Zealand.
"There was major progress over the outstanding issues of pharmaceuticals, dairy products and place-of-origin rules for automobiles," he said.
Trans-Pacific Partnership talks in Atlanta are continuing for a plenary session in an hour and a press conference is expected at 9am NZ time.
Peter Maybarduk, director of global access to medicine for American-based group Public Citizen, told Newstalk ZB the mood was tense.

Yesterday afternoon, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power marched to Twitter to proclaim: “we call on Russia to immediately cease attacks on Syrian oppo[sition and] civilians.” Along with that decree, she posted a statement from the U.S. and several of its closest authoritarian allies – including Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the UK – warning Russia that civilian casualties “will only fuel more extremism and radicalization.”
Early this morning, in the Afghan city of Kunduz, the U.S. dropped bombs on a hospital run by Doctors Without Borders (Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF)). The airstrike killed at least 9 of the hospital’s medical staff, and seriously injured dozens of patients. “Among the dead was the Afghan head of the hospital, Abdul Sattar,” reported The New York Times.
The Saudis keep hitting civilians -- a wedding party on Monday, killing 120 -- and blaming U.S. intelligence for bad targets. Overshadowed by its relative smallness and obscured by its relative complexity, the six-month-old civil war in Yemen is the middle child of Middle East conflict. Recently, its most prominent mentions in the U.S. have been in the Republican debates as candidates have placed the rebellion by Iranian-backed Houthi rebels against the Saudi-backed Yemeni government on the list of Iran’s regional evildoings.
Barbara Stone was only able to get out of jail when she agreed to stop blogging. Patty Reid is on the lam. Cary-Andrew Crittenden may be facing further jail time for his efforts to inform others about problems in the Santa Clara County legal system.

All these individuals are experiencing, up close and personal, the limits of free speech when that speech inconveniences someone more powerful than they. Twenty, thirty years ago none of these individuals would have faced the grave legal problems they now confront. But thirty years ago, the legal system in the US was not yet in free fall.
A day after we ran “Meet Your “Independent” Media, America“, in which we showed how prime time entertainment like 60 Minutes is strategically and voluntarily “planted” with propaganda trolls and “concerns” thus crushing any “unbiased” credibility mainstream US media may have, we dug into the archives to bring you “Conspiracy Theory Rock.”
Six Russian fighter jets type Multirole Sukhoi SU – 30 SM have intercepted 4 Israeli McDonnell Douglas F-15’s fighter bombers attempting to infiltrate the Syrian coast.The Israeli F 15 warplanes have been flying over Syrian airspace for months and in particular the coast of Latakia, which is now the bridgehead of the Russian forces in Syria.
With alarming frequency in recent years, thousands of American-trained security forces in the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia have collapsed, stalled or defected, calling into question the effectiveness of the tens of billions of dollars spent by the United States on foreign military training programs, as well as a central tenet of the Obama administration’s approach to combating insurgencies.
Insurgency. The White House word for keeping the people of a nation from kicking out their US puppet rulers and taking back their own country!
With the guise of improving academic achievement, doctors like Dr. Michael Anderson are prescribing drugs like Adderall to children with self-admitted, ‘made-up’ ADHD diagnoses.
Adderall is a dangerous stimulant, but Dr. Anderson, a pediatrician for many poor families in Cherokee County, north of Atlanta, prescribes Adderall whether his patients have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder or not when he hears they are suffering in school. He admits the disorder is ‘made up’ and prescribes the drugs anyhow, but usually only to children in low income schools with the explanation that they need to be drugged to keep up with children who perform better academically.
In a New York Times article, Anderson says:
“I don’t have a whole lot of choice. We’ve decided as a society that it’s too expensive to modify the kid’s environment. So we have to modify the kid.”
But the official US Government suggestion is for law-abiding sane people to surrender their guns, depend on posted signs saying "Gun Free Zone", and when the signs don't work, stab the shooter with scissors!
Lehigh Valley’s “The Morning Call” in Allentown, Penn. profiles the case of Sarah Behie, whose symptoms began three weeks after she got a flu shot. Eventually, the 20-year old’s condition deteriorated until she was partially paralyzed and living in hospitals and nursing homes from a neurological condition called Guillain-Barre syndrome, a rare but recognized and devastating side effect from vaccinations. Behie now has no use of her legs and lacks upper body strength. She cannot feed or clothe herself. She’s 24.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel for the first time publically accepted the fact that Crimea doesn’t belong to Ukraine and that the peninsula will stay as part of Russia, Alexei Pushkov, head of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Russian Duma, said on his Twitter account, according to Gazeta.ru.
We couldn’t find a formal announcement of this deployment to the CENTCOM area of responsibility, just a video shot by the public affairs personnel with a short description below it appearing on YouTube.
No wonder the Secret Service is so screwed up. They had to spend so much time waiting on insane aristocrats. The Beefeaters probably have it a lot easier dealing with an actual queen than our bunch does dealing with Hillary Clinton.
Former agent Jeff Crane says, “Hillary would cuss at Secret Service drivers for going over bumps.”
I suspect there were a lot of those bumps when Hillary was in the car.
Within the White House, Hillary had a “standing rule that no one spoke to her when she was going from one location to another,” says former FBI agent Coy Copeland. “In fact, anyone who would see her coming would just step into the first available office.”
One former Secret Service agent states, “If Hillary was walking down a hall, you were supposed to hide behind drapes used as partitions.”
Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) nurse Lajos Zoltan Jecs was in Kunduz trauma hospital when the facility was struck by a series of aerial bombing raids in the early hours of Saturday morning. He describes his experience:
“It was absolutely terrifying.
I was sleeping in our safe room in the hospital. At around 2am, I was woken up by the sound of a big explosion nearby. At first I didn't know what was going on. Over the past week we'd heard bombings and explosions before, but always further away. This one was different, close and loud.
At first there was confusion, and dust settling. As we were trying to work out what was happening, there was more bombing.
After 20 or 30 minutes, I heard someone calling my name. It was one of the Emergency Room nurses. He staggered in with massive trauma to his arm. He was covered in blood, with wounds all over his body.
An airstrike apparently carried out by U.S. forces heavily damaged a charitable hospital in northern Afghanistan on Saturday, killing at least 19 people — three of them reportedly children — in an incident that a senior U.N. official equated to a war crime.
The sequence of events leading up the French Revolution are likely unfamiliar to most. Yet money printing and a debauched French currency played no small part in those events. As a sequel to “Shorting the Federal Reserve”, 720 Global aims to provide an historical example of excessive money printing which lead to financial crisis, and ultimately the revolution of a major sovereign nation. More than a history lesson, this article effectively illustrates the road on which the U.S. and many other nations currently travel. The story relayed in this article is not a forecast for what may happen but a simple reminder of what has repeatedly happened in the past.
In this episode of Behind The Headline, Mnar Muhawesh discusses why an economically robust Iran poses a threat to the current power structure in the Middle East where Israel and Saudi Arabia run the show with journalist and geopolitical analyst, Sharmine Narwani.
Despite each year since 1996 of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu crying wolf that Iran is just a few months away from obtaining a bomb with no mention of course of Israel’s 80 nuclear warheads, Spy cables leaked earlier this year to the Guardian revealed that Israel’s very own intelligence agency, the Mossad, and the CIA both admitted that not only is Iran “not performing the activity necessary to produce weapons” now, it wasn’t in the past, either.
This video starts out very loud, so turn down the volume on your speakers first.
On the left is the selfie Christopher Mercer uploaded to his social media. On the right is how CNN presented the same selfie in broadcast stories about him. Why did CNN need to change the complexion (color) of their broadcast? Why is no-one showing pictures of mom, Laurel Margaret Harper.
One possible reason is the attempt to claim Mercer was a white supremacist.
