THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!

"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

CRAZY : Even Piers Morgan thinks mainstream media has lost its mind

British journalist and former CNN host Piers Morgan said during a recent interview that the media’s coverage of President Donald Trump is so lacking in objectivity that it’s “un-American.” -- Morgan, who was the face of a primetime show on CNN from 2011 until 2014, said that it’s obvious that media outlets like his former employer are picking on the Trump administration because they remain angry over Hillary Clinton’s loss. It’s obvious, he added, that mainstream media was all-in for the Democrat.

STUDY: Antidepressants linked to higher rates of suicide and self-harm

Evidence continues to pile up about the serious risks of taking antidepressants, and a new study provides additional proof that these risks extend beyond the popular SSRI class of drugs. A study out of the University of Nottingham links some popular antidepressants to a higher rate of suicide and self-harm among people suffering from depression between the ages of 20 and 64.

While past studies have generally focused on antidepressants from a category known as selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors (SSRIs), this one found that those taking other common antidepressants, such as mirtazapine, trazodone, and venlafaxine (Effexor), had even higher rates of suicide and self-harm than those taking SSRIs, which have also been connected to such outcomes.

Moreover, the researchers found that suicide and self-harm rates were the highest during the first 28 days of taking the antidepressants, and the effect remained 28 days after discontinuing the treatment.

Health Ranger issues “drink mercury” challenge to toxic vaccine pushers who poison infants for profit

For those who want to inject children with the brain damaging heavy metal mercury, I say, “Drink it yourself first!”

Now that Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has announced his $100,000 Thimerosal challenge — which the entire “fake news” mainstream media promptly blacklisted — I thought I would up the ante just a bit and challenge mercury vaccine pushers to demonstrate their claimed vaccine “safety” in a more dramatic way: DRINK MERCURY to prove it’s “safe.”

If ethylmercury is as safe as these toxic vaccine pushers claim it to be, they should be happy to drink a large volume of it and “prove” that it’s safe to inject into children, right?

Study: Up to 2.1 Million Hispanics May Have Voted Illegally

An analysis of a little-known study concluded there may have been more than 2 million non-citizen Hispanics who illegally voted last year.

The Washington Times cites the 2013 study, which was conducted by McLaughlin and Associates. A separate, and more recent, analysis by research nonprofit Just Facts found there was potentially a large number of non-citizens who managed to cast a vote in last fall's presidential election.

Donald Trump won the election but lost the popular vote to Democrat Hillary Clinton. He has said several times he believes voter fraud was rampant.

In the 2013 study, 13 percent of the non-citizen Hispanics said they were registered to vote.

SANCTUARY CITIES AREN’T JUST FOR ILLEGALS; THEY CAN BE FOR GUNS, TOO

However, as upsetting as it is that entire cities are ignoring laws that protect our sovereignty, the idea of a sanctuary city isn’t as bad as you might think. I don’t see anything wrong with the basic premise of a community or a city ignoring laws that they think are harmful to them. I only disagree with it in regards to illegal immigration. Cities should be allowed to do this, provided they’re willing to face the consequences, such as defunding by the feds.

The only real problem with the idea of sanctuary cities is that conservatives and libertarians haven’t utilized the concept in their own communities. They haven’t worked up the nerve to ignore the onerous rules of a government they have long complained about. For instance, why haven’t they decided to create sanctuaries for gun rights? Places where cities and towns can ignore state and federal gun laws that they don’t like?

Batten down the hatches: Most powerful storm to hit southern California in years barrels in bringing up to 10 inches of rain and 70mph winds

Southern California is currently being battered by a storm that experts say could be the biggest in six years, bringing heavy rains, gusting winds and the potential for flash floods and mudslides.

The entire Southland of California is on flood watch, including Death Valley National Park - considered to be the driest place in America.

'This will likely go down in the record books as one of the wettest February days ever,' Crystal Egger, NBC's weather forecaster, said.

For now, the storm will mostly steer clear of Northern California, where the bulging Oroville Dam threatened to give way to erosion last week.

But another system could bring more water to the straining dam early next week.

Confirmed: India’s Polio Eradication Campaign in 2011 Caused 47,500 Cases of Vaccine-Induced Polio Paralysis

If you listen to mainstream media news, you'll be told that polio has now been eradicated in India – an accomplishment the Polio Global Eradication Initiative (PGEI), founded in 1988 by the World Health Organization (WHO), Rotary International, UNICEF, and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), are attributing to the intense polio vaccination campaign.

The Indian government reportedly had 2.3 million vaccine administrators visit over 200 million households, with oral polio vaccinations given to nearly 170 million children 5 years of age and younger;1 health officials are now doubling their efforts to conquer polio in Pakistan as well.

50 Studies the AAP Avoided to Mention

There is a robust, worldwide body of published science from highly esteemed scientists questioning the safety of many different aspects of vaccines-how come we never hear from them? The majority of the most compelling science has been published since 2010. Below find 50 such studies to consider, sorted chronologically, and note that these studies only represent a portion of the published work implicating vaccinations in a wide variety of negative health outcomes.

The American Academy of Pediatrics made representations to President Trump in a letter dated 2/7/2017 that are utterly indefensible and inaccurate, as any rational review of the studies below quickly demonstrates. For example, the AAP wrote:

"Claims that vaccines are unsafe when administered according to expert recommendations have been disproven by a robust body of medical literature...we write to express our unequivocal support for the safety of vaccines."

Blair’s bid to DERAIL BREXIT: Fury as ex-PM suggests UK could STAY in EU without new vote

The controversial former prime minister was branded "patronising" and accused of trying to "undermine British democracy" after he this morning used a major speech in central London to launch a bid to create a “movement” campaigning to reverse the Brexit vote on June 23 last year.

Mr Blair described it as his “mission” to persuade the British people they had made the wrong decision at the EU referendum and had “voted without knowledge of the true terms of Brexit”.

IDS' blistering assault on Tony Blair after former PM demands uprising against Brexit

Mr Duncan Smith, who was Mr Blair's direct rival during his time as Tory leader, was savage as he criticised the ex-PM for his globe-trotting consultancy work.

He told Sky News: "The idea we are going to have Tony Blair coming in, late in the day lecturing, after advising quasi-dictators around the world what to do.

"He seems to have forgotten what democracy is about.

“Democracy is about asking people a question and then acting on it. That’s what we did and that’s what we are doing at the moment. The government and Theresa May is doing exactly the right thing.

“The idea that you just keep on asking the British people until they give you the right answer to the question, which is his case, and some of his political elite friends is no we don’t want to leave the European Union is arrogant really.”

Alien life boost: Dwarf planet Ceres has building blocks for life

Organic material has been discovered on Ceres – the dwarf planet between Mars and Jupiter – boosting the hopes of finding life outside of Earth.

The materials were discovered by Nasa’s Dawn spacecraft and while they cannot be identified exactly, the researchers say the materials resemble tar-like materials such as kerite or asphaltite.

Dawn's lead scientist Christopher Russell said: “The discovery indicates that the starting material in the solar system contained the essential elements, or the building blocks, for life.

"Ceres may have been able to take this process only so far. Perhaps to move further along the path took a larger body with more complex structure and dynamics (like Earth).”

'We need to get out NOW' Euro MEPs approve superstate plan to hand vast power to Brussels

BRUSSELS politicians today voted to push forward sweeping reforms including creating an EU finance minister, army and tax ministry which critics say would amount to the creation of a European superstate.

Eurosceptics reacted with fury and disbelief as MEPs approved three separate reports on planned reforms to how Brussels operates, the most contentious of which was drafted by Brexit negotiator Guy Verhofstadt and squeaked through by just 14 votes.

Critics tonight said the fact that such a set of plans could be passed by MEPs demonstrated why the British people voted to leave the EU and that Theresa May needs to press ahead with Brexit.

Mixed Messages on Russia: Trump Administration Divided and All Over the Place

Mixed messages on Russia are coming out of the Trump administration, which seems to be hopelessly divided and anything but cohesive on the Russian issue. Much to the great disappointment of many who see that a peaceful US-Russia relationship is the key to avoiding World War 3, Trump has for the most part changed his tune on Russia … sort of. At today’s press conference he again stressed the need for a good relationship with Russia. Yet, only yesterday on Feb. 15th 2017, Trump himself put out a tweet that alleged that Russia took Crimea and asked if Obama was too soft on Russia? So which is it? Has Trump done a big U-Turn on Russia?

WARNING: Parents told to DESTROY talking doll because it could be used by PAEDOPHILES

PARENTS in Germany have been told to destroy a 'Big Brother' child's doll because it can be used for spying.

Officials fear the doll called 'My Friend Cayla' - which is linked to the Internet - can be easily hijacked by hackers or paedophiles.

Consumer watchdog officials say My Friend Cayla is equipped with an insecure Bluetooth device, which cyber-criminals could take over in order to steal personal data and listen and talk to the child playing with it.

Germany’s Federal Network Agency, the regulatory office for electricity, gas, telecommunications, post and railway markets, now tells parents: "Destroy it immediately."

Dangerous: Judge Says It Was 'Objectively Unreasonable' For Cox To Claim DMCA Safe Harbors

From the very beginning, this case was a joke, and it's unfortunate that the court didn't realize that early on. The case was filed back in 2014, and we pointed out that it was really BMG (and another publisher, Round Hill Music) acting as a proxy for copyright trolling operation Rightscorp, testing out the wacky legal theory that the DMCA requires that ISPs kick repeat infringers entirely off the internet. No one has ever interpreted the DMCA in this manner. Yes, 512(i) requires a repeat infringer policy, but it had always been widely recognized that that referred to services that hosted content, not network providers (e.g., YouTube is required to have a repeat infringer policy that kicks users off YouTube if they keep posting infringing works, but your ISP shouldn't kick you off the internet for the same thing.)

Al-Bab, an ISIS stronghold 30 km (20 miles) from the Turkish border, has been a prime target since Turkey launched an incursion last August to push the extremists from its frontier and prevent gains by a Kurdish militia also fighting them.

Woolly mammoth on verge of resurrection, scientists reveal

Scientist leading ‘de-extinction’ effort says Harvard team could create hybrid mammoth-elephant embryo in two years

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As the tag line itself admits, what they are not making a true mammoth but are really making is a hybrid; an elephant with some mammoth DNA in it. That makes applying observations of the hybrid to the real mammoths dubious at best.

With all apologies to Michael Crichton, his "Jurassic Park" method of bringing back the dinosaurs was flawed. It takes more than just the DNA to create new life. There is also the endless series of hormones provided by the mother's body which significantly affect development. This issue is actually addressed in a later film of the franchise. What filled Jurassic Park were artificial creations that only looked like dinosaurs.

Were one to create an absolutely accurate Jurassic Park dinosaur today, it would have a hard time even surviving. Despite the name "Jurassic Park", the specific dinosaurs in the movies were from the Cretaceous period. Earth's atmosphere was very different then. Samples trapped in amber show 50% more oxygen, allowing for higher metabolic rates. There is evidence that Earth's atmosphere was much thicker and denser during the Mesozoic, dense enough that it provided a small amount of buoyancy to land animals, which allowed them to grow to larger sizes.

Hence, a totally accurate Cretaceous dinosaur today would be gasping for breath, be too heavy for its legs, and probably find the present-day sunshine just a bit too bright for comfort.

Western news media has feasted on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s talk and the reactions to it as a rare political spectacle rich in personalities in conflict. But the real story of Netanyahu’s speech is that he is continuing a long tradition in Israeli politics of demonizing Iran to advance domestic and foreign policy interests.

The history of that practice, in which Netanyahu has played a central role going back nearly two decades, shows that it has been based on a conscious strategy of vastly exaggerating the threat from Iran.

News media should illuminate conflicts of interest, not embody them. But the owner of the Washington Post is now doing big business with the Central Intelligence Agency, while readers of the newspaper’s CIA coverage are left in the dark.

The Post’s new owner, Jeff Bezos, is the founder and CEO of Amazon -- which recently landed a $600 million contract with the CIA. But the Post’s articles about the CIA are not disclosing that the newspaper’s sole owner is the main owner of CIA business partner Amazon.

Even for a multi-billionaire like Bezos, a $600 million contract is a big deal. That’s more than twice as much as Bezos paid to buy the Post four months ago.

BEX - Rain runoff may have undermined Oroville Dam's concrete spillway, report says

Rainwater erosion alongside the Oroville Dam’s main spillway appears to have contributed to the heavy damage that prompted a crisis, forcing more than 100,000 to be evacuated from their homes, a report reviewed by The Times showed.

A summary of the incident, prepared by state water officials four days after the crater in the concrete chute appeared, said water from heavy rains hit the hillsides where the massive concrete spillway runs.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We already know, thanks to the European press, that the spillway had major cracks dating back to 2009 which were not repaired, but painted over with a concrete solution. But water will still leak through such a patch, washing out a void in the soil underneath and leaving the overlying structure unsupported. It's a larger scale version of the mechanism by which potholes form in roads. And we know this is the case because of how deep that crater was from the initial collapse.

Judge’s Ruling Against CNN May Make Suing Media Easier…

Donald Trump probably doesn't know about it, but the guy who once said he wanted to open up libel laws will probably be quite pleased by a new ruling from a Georgia federal judge. In fact, the stakes in this case are so high we wouldn't be surprised if it eventually lands before the U.S. Supreme Court and potentially makes it easier to sue entertainment and media outlets.

Republicans, it’s past time to euthanize Obamacare

Let us first get to the brass tacks. The Obamacare bill illegally passed by the Obama Democrats in 2009 was never about healthcare. It was a collectivist’s dream designed to pigeonhole Americans into a one-size-fits-all system that controlled health choices, fund leftist pet causes (baby murder, aka abortion), destroy the middle class and force everyone to purchase services from select crony corporations with the promise said crony corporations would receive unlimited funding from the federal treasury.

Reasons Why Michael Flynn Was Fatality #1 in the Trump Presidency Takedown

By Joachim Hagopian
February 17, 2017
Each ideological camp, the Trump/right wing supporters and the Obama-Clinton/left wing supporters, has legions of foot soldiers ready to fight the second civil war. They’ve largely fallen prey to the elite’s divide and conquer trap. The bottom line reality is regardless of who or what party occupies the White House, the same controlling interests that select and finance the two major party candidates are still pulling the puppet strings whichever one is placed in power. In other words, every American president over the last half century has served the diabolical elite, and not the people. And the last president that tried to serve the American people was murdered.

That said, there are real differences between two factions currently operating within deep state America that are battling for upper hand control right now.

US ‘not in a position right now to collaborate’ with Russia militarily - Pentagon chief

As President Donald Trump repeatedly stressed the need to get along with Russia, two of his top Cabinet members were abroad, saying the US is ready not for closer ties until Moscow “proves” its commitment to international agreements.

On Thursday, Secretary of Defense James Mattis said at a NATO meeting in Brussels, Belgium that the US isn’t ready to collaborate militarily with Russia against Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) or other threats."Russia's aggressive actions have violated international law and are destabilizing," he added.

Before the US is willing to work with its former Cold War rival, "Russia is going to have to prove itself first," Mattis said. "The point about Russia is they have to live by international law just like we expect all nations on this planet to do."

Fmr Navy SEAL rejects offer to be Trump’s national security advisor

Following Flynn’s sudden departure after just 24 days on the job, Trump's first choice to fill the vacant seat rejected the offer on Thursday. Harward told the Associated Press that the decision was “purely a personal issue," and said the White House was "very accommodating to my needs, both professionally and personally."

He explained that he is “in a unique position finally after being the in military for 40 years to enjoy some personal time."

Trump attacks haven’t hurt network, CNN says

The president of CNN says that neither the network’s journalism or business have been hurt as a result of President Donald Trump’s attacks.

Jeff Zucker, president of CNN Worldwide, spoke Thursday at the same time Trump was holding a news conference in Washington that continued his barrage against media coverage of the administration, while also allaying some concern about his willingness to answer questions.

Zucker said he was worried enough about Trump’s labeling of CNN as ‘‘fake news’’ that he ordered a study to see if the brand’s reputation had been damaged among viewers. He said it hadn’t, although CNN did not immediately release details.

He said the network’s ratings are up significantly since last year.

Exactly who is it that is in ‘Denial’?

The other day, I watched Mick Jackson’s ‘Denial’. The film tells the story of Irving’s 2000 defeat in court - a disaster he voluntarily brought upon himself and indeed, Irving has clearly made some mistakes in his life. Yet, in 2017 it is impossible to deny that, back in 2000, Irving was well ahead of most of us.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Denial was heavily promoted as a pro-Israel propaganda piece to silence those who question the official history of WW2. It scored an 82% at Rotten Tomatoes (underscoring that online ratings are often hijacked) and was nominated for a Bafta (but did not win).

But.

The film cost $10,000,000 to shoot, which means it has to make $25,000,000 at the box office to break even (ignoring the higher than usual promotional budget.

The film only took in $4,2 million, proving that people are sick of hearing about the Holocaust.
