About 1,500 Rallied in Berlin Against Syria Strikes – Die Linke Party

Approximately 1,500 Germans took to the streets of Berlin on Wednesday to protest against the US-led strikes on Syria and call for an end to war, Alexander Neu, a member of the Bundestag from the left-wing Die Linke party, which organized the protests, told Sputnik on Thursday.

Germany welcomed the joint actions taken by its US, UK and French allies against Syria on April 14 in response to the alleged chemical weapons attack in the Damascus suburb of Duma. The German authorities stressed that this military strike was necessary to support the effectiveness of the international boycott of the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian government. However, Berlin chose to refrain from participating in the military operation itself.

Trump Puts his Logo on the Military-Industrial Complex, Sets Up US Arms Sales with Syria Demo

Trump’s bid to increase U.S. arms sales, by using the Syria strikes as a PR blitz to show the effectiveness of U.S.-made weapons, is just the latest action taken by the president to cement his role as America’s top arms dealer

WASHINGTON – The week after the U.S., along with the U.K. and France, launched unilateral strikes against the Syrian government, the Trump administration is rolling out a “Buy American” weapons-selling initiative aimed at allowing other nations to buy even more weapons from U.S.-based arms manufacturers. According to Reuters, the initiative, set to be announced today, will speed up the approval of arms deals to U.S. allies and will call for members of President Donald Trump’s cabinet, as well as the president himself, to act as “closers” in major arms deals and salesmen for U.S. weapons companies at international air shows and weapons showcases.

“The System Will Have To Collapse”

The public pension fund system is approaching apocalypse. Earlier this week teachers who are part of the Colorado public pension system (PERA) staged a walk-out protest over proposed changes to the plan, including raising the percentage contribution to the fund by current payees and raising the retirement age. PERA backed off but ignoring the obvious problem will not make it go away.

Every public pension fund in the country is catastrophically underfunded, especially if strict mark-to-market of the illiquid assets were applied. Illinois has been playing funding games for a few years to keep its pension fund solvent. In Kentucky, where the public pension fund is on the verge of collapse, teachers are demanding a State bailout.

Korean Peninsula in Historic Peace Talks - Thanks to Activists, Not Trump

After six decades of conflict, it looks like the war on the Korean peninsula may finally be coming to an end. Since the early 1950s, South and North Korea have technically been at war with each other. From 1950-1953 the United States waged a devastating war on North Korea in which the U.S. killed some 3 million people, 20 percent of the nation's population. The U.S. burned most of the country's major cities to the ground. After this U.S.-led war, South and North Korea never signed a peace treaty, which means generations of Koreans on both sides of the demilitarized zone have grown up in a perpetual state of war.

HOW TO PISS OFF THE FAR RIGHT IN ISRAEL

This year, the Israel Prize for Literature was awarded to David Grossman, one of the heralded novelists of the Left, who has a long reputation for speaking out against the “occupation” of Palestinian land, against the “settlers’ and the “settlements”, and against the ideological decay and dying morality of the Israeli majority.

In the past, after the Gaza War, Grossman demanded an inquiry to investigate the IDF, Tzahal, which led to the infamous anti-Israel Goldstone Report. After the Flotilla Affair, he accused the IDF of acting like a “brigade of pirates.” When Tzahal was sent to clean out terrorist havens in Judea and Samaria, Grossman drove off to assist Palestinians with their olive harvest.

The alliance has to respond in a proportionate way, Stoltenberg said after a lecture. It seems that what happened in Salisbury “was not an attack or incident which requires Article 5,” he noted, answering students’ questions. He also said that NATO responded to the “Skripal case” by reducing the number of the Russian permanent mission to NATO. Russia denies any involvement in the incident.

George Soros may close his NGO’s Budapest office amid ‘political hostility’ – report

George Soros' Open Society Foundations (OSF) may close their office in Budapest and move Eastern European operations to Germany, due to the “political hostility” it faces in Hungary, Austria’s Die Presse newspaper reported.

The office may shut down, reportedly, by the end of August and then move to Berlin or to Vienna. The report came a week and a half after Hungarian parliamentary elections, in which the conservative, anti-immigrant Fidesz party, led by Prime Minister Viktor Orban, secured a decisive victory.

In a press release on Thursday night, the Open Society Foundations neither confirmed nor denied the report, saying that it is “closely monitoring the situation” but emphasizing that, in any case, it will “remain committed to Hungary.”

Maltese politicians face pressure over $1.6m paid to offshore firms

Two leading Maltese politicians are facing mounting pressure amid revelations that $1.6m was paid to an anonymous Dubai company identified as one of two “target clients” of their own offshore companies in Panama.

The allegations concern the tourism minister, Konrad Mizzi, and the prime minister’s chief of staff, Keith Schembri, both beneficial owners of offshore firms in Panama set up to exploit an array of business opportunities.

Although no deals or payments between the Dubai company and Panama companies ever took place, a newly discovered email in the Panama Papers reveals there was a plan for a pair of Dubai entities to be “main target clients” of Schembri and Mizzi’s Panama firms.

Furthermore, new research by the Daphne Project suggests the Dubai firms received unexplained payments of $1.6m. The transfers are detailed within a 120-page draft report by the Maltese financial intelligence unit seen by the Guardian.

‘Don’t let Trump rip up the Iran deal!’ 300 European parliamentarians pen letter to US Congress

Three hundred parliamentarians from Britain, France and Germany have called on the US Congress not to let President Trump abandon the Iran deal, warning it would undermine the very concept of diplomacy and any future negotiations.
The letter, written by British MP Richard Bacon and his German and French counterparts, Omid Nouripour and Delphine O, was published in the Guardian on Thursday. In it, they argue that the deal has been the only effective control of Tehran’s nuclear ambitions, and has helped prevent an arms race and a potentially devastating conflict in the Middle East.

“We were able to impose unprecedented scrutiny on the Iranian nuclear programme, dismantle most of their nuclear enrichment facilities, and drastically reduce the danger of a nuclear arms race,” they wrote.

Mount Io (Iwo-yama volcano) erupts for the first time since 1768, Japan

Iwo-yama volcano also known as Mount Io and Mount Ioyama, located on the Ebino Highland and a part of Kirishimayama volcano group in Japan's Kyushu, erupted at 06:39 UTC (15:39 JST) on April 19, 2018 for the first time since 1768.

The volcano ejected ash high into the air, forcing the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) to raise the alert level from 2 to 3 (of 5), restricting access to the volcano. Today marks the first time JMA has raised the alert level to 3 for this volcano.

The agency said that it confirmed the scattering of volcanic rocks around the crater and added that it is possible that the volcanic activity will further increase.

Residents and tourists are cautioned against falling rocks within 3 km (1.8 km) and pyroclastic flows within 2 km (1.2 miles) from the crater. In addition, the agency called for people to be on guard over the possibility of mudslides after any rainfall, depending on how much ash fell from the volcano.

According to the Russian diplomat, the British side has circulated at the UN Security Council a letter "full of false, ungrounded and slanderous allegations, as usual." "The United Kingdom has dared to speak about our chemical statement in a preemptory manner, to judge the methods of work of our special services.

How the Lowly Mushroom is Becoming a Nutritional Star

By Robert Beelman, Pennsylvania State University

Mushrooms are often considered only for their culinary use because they are packed with flavor-enhancers and have gourmet appeal. That is probably why they are the second most popular pizza topping, next to pepperoni.

In the past, food scientists like me often praised mushrooms as healthy because of what they don’t contribute to the diet; they contain no cholesterol and gluten and are low in fat, sugars, sodium and calories. But that was selling mushrooms short...

DOJ watchdog sends criminal referral for McCabe to federal prosecutor

The Justice Department’s internal watchdog has sent a criminal referral for fired FBI official Andrew McCabe to the U.S. attorney’s office in Washington.

The move follows a recent DOJ inspector general report that found McCabe leaked a self-serving story to the press and later lied about it to then-Director James Comey and federal investigators, prompting Attorney General Jeff Sessions to fire him on March 16.

A source confirmed to Fox News that the referral was sent.

The Washington Post reported earlier that the IG referred the finding that McCabe misled investigators "some time ago," asking the top federal prosecutor for D.C. to examine whether he should be charged.

SYRIAN WAR REPORT – APRIL 20, 2018: OPERATIONS IN SOUTHERN DAMASCUS, EASTERN QALAMOUN

On April 19, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allies supported by warplanes of the Syrian Air Force launched a military operation against ISIS in the Yarmouk refugee camp and the al-Hajar al-Aswad district in southern Damascus. The SAA also involved artillery guns and rocket launchers to support the attack.

The development came after negotiations on a possible withdrawal of ISIS members from the area to the eastern Homs desert had collapsed. However, according to local sources, the ISIS members in Yarmouk still have chances to accept a withdrawal agreement.

On the same day, militants in the main Eastern Qalamoun pocket surrendered to the SAA and accepted an agreement under which they will be able to withdraw to the militant held parts of Aleppo and Idlib provinces or to settle their legal status. Militants already began handing over their heavy weapons, including a few battle tanks. The evacuation process is set to be started on April 20.

After this, the missiles were flown to Russia by plane, presumably for analysis. TASS could not confirm this independently with the Russian Defense Ministry at this time.

STUNNING coincidence? Chlorine containers from Germany and smoke bombs from Salisbury (Skripal poisoning) found in Syria

“The more this story goes on, the more the wheels fall off the wagon of the initial allegations” says independent journalist Martin Summers as Russia reveals to Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) they gave proof ‘Novichok’ was patented in US in 2015.

It gets better…Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova stated during a Thursday press conference that containers filled with chlorine from Germany and smoke bombs manufactured in the United Kingdom city of Salisbury were found in the East Ghouta region of Damascus, the location of the alleged chemical attack by Assad which resulted in the launch of 105 Tomahawks on 3 Syrian targets by US, UK and French forces last Friday.

Just to remind our readers, the Skripal attack was staged in…you guessed it, Salisbury.

Barbara Bush, mother of war criminal George W. Bush, died on April 17, 2018. Geraldine Comley, my mother, died April 17, 2011. Bush was called the matriarch of a Republican political dynasty.

China's lawyer wants Tahiti woman to keep silent over rental dispute

A French Polynesian woman in a dispute with Chinese diplomats in Tahiti says she has been asked by their lawyer to stop making public accusations on Facebook and in the media.

This came as China's diplomats refuse to vacate the consulate building whose lease expired at the end of February.

Eva Bitton, whose mother is the owner of the building, launched an online petition in a bid to force China to recognise local property laws.

She also spoke to the media about the diplomats' refusal to leave.

Mrs Bitton said the diplomats are free to lodge a complaint about any alleged defamation but added that she doesn't live in a Communist country.

LAID OFF CNN EMPLOYEE EMAILS JEFF ZUCKER

Just some constructive feedback from one of your stockholders.

I've been a Time Warner stockholder for the past 17 years, and was a CNN employee for 15 years before being impacted by John's "Turner 2020" mass layoffs in October 2014.

Wanted to congratulate you on the reported news that CNN had a billion dollars in profit in 2016. That's great! I'm so glad that my "eliminated" $49,400 a year HLN Research Analyst position might have eventually contributed, in whatever microscopic way, to the company's increased profitability.
