"In the beginning the church was a fellowship of men and women centering on the living Christ. Then the church moved to Greece where it became a philosophy. Then it moved to Rome where it became an institution. Next, it moved to Europe , where it became a culture. And, finally, it moved to America where it became an enterprise." -- Richard Halverson, former chaplain of the United States Senate

Food sanctions against US raise difficulties in supplying ISS crew

The embargo on supplies of US food to Russia causes problems in the supply of the crew of the International Space Station (ISS), says a quarterly report by the Energia rocket and space corporation posted on the agency’s website.
"The list of goods prohibited for import includes foodstuffs that are part of the parcels for the crew and food containers delivered from the United States and intended for delivery to the ISS by Russian spacecraft," the document says.
The imposition of the sanctions affects the fulfillment of the corporation’s contractual obligations to supply food to the ISS crew, it adds.
Russia announced a one-year ban on importing agricultural products from the United States and several other countries last August.

Sarkozy calls for creating new Schengen agreement for Europe

The principles of the operation of one single European area must be reviewed "top to bottom," and to this end the European Union member-countries should develop a fundamentally new Schengen agreement that would replace the previous one, said former French President Nicholas Sarkozy who currently heads the country’s leading opposition party, the Union for a Popular Movement.
According to Sarkozy, France is a country "open from a geographical point of view." However, the issue of regulating the migration flows is becoming more and more acute for Paris. "Of course, we will not leave people to die in the proximity of France, but one thing is to save somebody’s life and quite another - to create a system in which a fraud becomes a rule rather than an exception and which works to the detriment of French tax-payers," Sarkozy said.

Switzerland delivers water treatment chemicals to Donetsk republic as humanitarian aid

A Swiss 15-truck convoy with humanitarian aid has delivered 300 tonnes of water treatment chemicals to the city of Donetsk, the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs said in Bern.
"This is the first humanitarian convoy of its size to have crossed the contact line between the government-controlled area and that under the control of non-government forces since the armed conflict began in the region," the statement says noting that the chemicals, mainly aluminium sulphate, would be pumped into the water facilities supplying 3.5 million residents with drinking water.
Switzerland organised the transportation as "the drinking water supply in the conflict zone no longer meets health standards owing to a lack of disinfection capacities, resulting in the spread of diseases like hepatitis A."

With the President of China sitting at the right hand of Putin, the celebration also made it completely clear even to the morons in the Obama regime that Washington is no longer the Uni-power.

Security researcher tells FBI he took control of a commercial airliner - even making it fly sideways - by hacking into the entertainment system

A prominent hacker and security researcher who was kicked off a United Airlines flight last month had previously admitted to the FBI that he had taken control of a plane and made it fly sideways.

Chris Roberts told a special agent earlier this year that he had repeatedly hacked planes' in-flight entertainment systems while aboard the aircraft, a search warrant application by the FBI states.

In one case, he also reportedly claimed to have overwritten the plane's Thrust Management Computer code, allowing him to issue a climb command and make the plane serve sideways.

Following the interviews with the FBI agent on February 13 and 23 and March 5 - and another in April - Roberts had two of his laptops confiscated, along with several hard drives and USB sticks.

Political solution to Syria crisis against actual US policy: American activist

US President Barack Obama is calling for a political solution to the Syrian crisis but at the same time Washington is also arming militants fighting against the government of President Bashar al-Assad, an American activist in Maryland says.

Myles Hoenig made the remarks in an interview with Press TV on Saturday while commenting on US President Barack Obama’s recent comments on the Syrian conflict that has consumed tens of thousands of lives since 2011.

In an interview with Saudi-owned al-Arabiya television on Friday, Obama said there is no “military solution” to the Syrian crisis. “Ultimately a military solution is not going to be the solution.”

Earthquakes on Hawaii volcano could signal new eruption

A series of earthquakes and shifting ground on the slopes of Kilauea have scientists wondering what will happen next at one of the world's most active volcanos.

A lake of lava near the summit of Kilauea on Hawaii's Big Island had risen to a record-high level after a recent explosion. But in the past few days, the pool of molten rock began sinking, and the surface of the lava lake fell nearly 500 feet.

Meanwhile, a rash of earthquakes rattled the volcano with as many as 20 to 25 quakes per hour, and scientists' tilt meters detected that the ground was deforming.

Woman Told by Airline She Couldn't Return Text From Her Suicidal Husband, Comes Home to Find Him Dead

Karen Momsen-Evers's plane home to Milwaukee from a girls' weekend in New Orleans was about to take off when she received a text from her husband, Andy: "Karen, please forgive me for what I am about to do, I am going to kill myself." Though she desperately tried to respond, Momsen-Evers was told by flight attendants that she needed to put her phone on airplane mode immediately, TMJ 4 reports.

"I begged her, I said I'm sure somebody can make an emergency phone call, I just wanted somebody to go and try to save him," Momsen-Evers said. "Nobody helped." She spent the next two hours crying in her seat. Even when the plane reached cruising altitude and Momsen-Evers explained the situation to another flight attendant, they would not make an exception for her to make an emergency phone call. When the plane landed in Milwaukee, she was finally able to call the police. By the time she got home, she was met by officers who told her Andy was dead.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mythbusters did a show in which they showed that cell phones in fact do not interfere with the aircraft navigation systems.

Reply to a Reader’s Complaint about Anti-American Pro-Russian Bias

I recently received a sharp complaint from a reader about an assumed anti-American pro-Russian bias in my writings. The complaint gives a very good opportunity to address questions on the minds of many in the West confused by an extremely biased pro-Washington, anti-Russian bias in mainstream media coverage of Ukraine and Russia as the new demon to be fought.

First, Mr. Schneider, let me say I am an American and I am definitely not anti-American. I love my country and my fellow Americans.

What I do not love is the clique of very rich who—especially over the past three decades since the time of Reagan and Bush Senior—have step-by-step subverted the American Constitution and its guarantees of citizen rights, have destroyed prudent regulation of the health and safety of American citizens by easing safety rules of the Environmental Protection Agency to benefit companies like DuPont or Monsanto at the expense of the public.

Far from admitting defeat, Benjamin Netanyahu is planning to sabotage the agreement between Washington and Teheran which is to be signed the 30th June 2015. In order to do so, he could restart the war in Syria. His idea is to continue the work already accomplished by the Islamic Emirate in Iraq, Syria, Libya and Yemen, by applying the Wright plan and creating an independent pseudo-Kurdistan straddling Iraq and Syria.

He joins us to speak on the subject matter of his latest books, “Heroes Hang When Traitors Triumph” and “Heroes of the Reich.” In the first hour, Mike gives an overview of the negative propaganda surrounding the period of the Russian Revolution to the end of Nazi Germany. We consider why it is essential to look back to the stories of the defeated during this time frame when scrutinizing the post-WWII reconstruction era controlled by the banking system and mainstream media. Mike takes us back to the story of the iconic Lawrence of Arabia, a highly principled man who was deeply opposed to a war with Germany and ultimately removed from the equation.

Éric Zemmour: SOS Racisme, a case study in anti-nationalist Jewish activism

Zemmour observes that “the Jewish far-left, from the Trotskyite movements to the UEJF [Jewish student union], was at the reins” of SOS Racisme, a major “anti-racist” group. In alliance with the institutional left, SOS Racisme worked to divide the right-wing vote, to politically isolate nationalist parties (above all the Front National), to censor nationalist discourse, and to hijack incipient Black/Arab movements. Zemmour argues that SOS Racisme thus “sapped the foundations of the French nation.”

A flotilla carrying humanitarian aid has set out from Sweden on its way to Gaza which is under and Israeli maritime blockade. The ships are carrying pro-Palestinian activists aiming to break the blockade. Two other vessels are expected to join them later. The Foreign Ministry of Israel has described it an unnecessary provocation, saying the boats will be denied entry, and if you want to send aid to Gaza - do it via Israel.

Up to 10 people were killed 5 years ago when Israel tried to block the first flotilla bound for Gaza.

Israeli Government Most Racist, Extremist in History

The only one who rivals them and is missing from the show is Avigdor Lieberman, who’s bowed out for political reasons of his own. In the past, nations of the world have isolated individual leaders of nations and refused to visit or meet with them because their ideas are so noxious that they fall outside the consensus of international discourse. Kurt Waldheim and Jorg Haider are examples of this. The time has come to put the Israeli government in herem. You can pick your poison among them as to which deserves special ostracism.

The CBC's recent revelation that Conservative Public Safety Minister Steven Blaney has called for "zero tolerance" of criticism of Israel and that Canadian hate laws could be applied to those campaigning for BDS -- Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions -- against Israel is repugnant enough. But the truly disturbing irony in this outrageous declaration is that the more extreme the Israeli government becomes, the more illegal settlements it builds, the more explicit its open contempt for world opinion and the more outrageous Netanyahu's statements, the stronger is the support from the Harper government. It raises the question: is there any action, including the actual expulsion of Palestinians from Israel and the Occupied Territories that Harper would not support?

Fox News Correspondent Calls Amtrak Engineer’s Sexuality “A Factor” In Deadly Crash

Bostian is a gay man—cited by some outlets as a “gay activist” because he was active in the fight against California’s Proposition 8. In 2012, he told The Midtown Gazette: “It’s kind of insulting to have to beg people for my right to marry. I feel like we shouldn’t even have to have this fight.”

His sexuality hasn’t been reported on by major media organizations because it’s completely irrelevant.

But it is oddly “interesting” to anti-gay bigots, who’ve been inferring Bostian’s sexuality somehow “caused” the horrific derailment.

Right Wing Watch notes a few extremists linking the two, none as awful as Sandy Rios, the governmental affairs director of the hate group American Family Association and regular Fox News contributor. Today on her AFA radio program, she cited Bostian’s sexuality as “a factor” in the crash.

New York Times sells Israel’s next war

How hard is it for the Israeli military to launch an unprovoked war with its neighbor by casting itself as a victim of barbarianism, rallying international support and even apologizing in advance and exonerating itself for killing innocent civilians? It seems it only takes one phone call to the New York Times.

That’s right, the world’s most powerful newspaper has just published an article wholly inspired and almost entirely narrated by the unverifiable and belligerent claims of Israeli military sources. The article “Israel Says Hezbollah Positions Put Civilians at Risk” casts no serious journalistic or responsible doubt on these Israeli claims made by a military institution that has engaged in wars that have killed tens of thousands of civilians in the past.

The author, Isabel Kershner warns that Israel says “…many Lebanese civilians will probably be killed, and that it should not be considered Israel’s fault.”
