ONE OF THE WORST PHARMACEUTICAL DISASTERS IN HISTORY IS STILL RELEVANT TODAY

One of the worst drug disasters in history is unfolding right before our eyes.

DES (diethylstilbestrol) is a synthetic estrogen that was given to pregnant women from 1940 through the early 1970s. DES was touted as a “wonder drug” that would prevent miscarriage and morning sickness. It was only after millions of women and fetuses were exposed to DES that it was recognized that DES was causing deadly cancers in both the women who took it and the children exposed to it in-utero. According to The Wonder Drug Movie, a documentary about DES:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please remember: when a doctor is propagandized that something is great for their patients, and most probably will cause no irrevocable harm, they are brainwashed into believing it, because of their background, and only know about that drug from the circulars handed to them by very attractive pharmaceutical representatives.

Pharmaceutical companies are generally headed by people whose conscience has been surgically removed, and where the watchwords are "Profits Uber Alles."

So when you see an advert on TV about some product, but then hear the horrific potential side effects, usually at the end of the commercial, ask yourself; where will this product be in 20 years?!?

Democratic Louisiana Governor Backtracks, Praises Trump For Flood Visit

On Thursday night, Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards (D-LA) released a statement suggesting that Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump‘s hastily-organized Friday visit to Baton Rouge was nothing but a photo op, but on Sunday morning, he backtracked on that criticism and praised Trump for his visit. In an interview with CNN’s Dana Bash on State of the Union, Gov. Bel Edwards insisted that he hadn’t criticized Trump, and thanked Trump and his running mate for visiting his state on Friday:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Trump did not take any media with him down to Louisiana, but the corporate media followed him, looking for any opportunity to undermine the fact that Trump was there while Obama golfed and Hillary sent a tweet. The real shock for the corporate media was when they found Trump had donated an 18 wheeler truck full of needed supplies without much fanfare.

TURKEY ALIGNS WITH RUSSIA AND IRAN; SYRIA BOMBED KURDS, NEARLY HIT US COMMANDOS

On the fifth anniversary of the US government declaring that Assad must go, the battle for Aleppo rages and major political and military realignments are in the works. Syria bombed Kurdish security forces (Ayaysh), with US commandos nearby. The US scrambled fighter jets, warned Syria, and now patrol that airspace. Russia has increased airstrikes and is using an air base in Iran.

Russia is also deploying a combat ship to the Gulf of Aden. There are unconfirmed reports of US nuclear weapons moving from Turkey to Romania.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And a reminder; the US does not have the permission of the Syrian government to be there.

Sailor Denied 'Clinton Deal', Gets 1 Year in Prison for 6 Photos of Sub

A former Navy machinist mate who admitted taking photos inside a nuclear submarine was sentenced to a year in prison Friday, with a federal judge rebuffing a request for probation in light of authorities deciding not to prosecute Hillary Clinton for mishandling classified information on a private email server as secretary of state.

Kristian Saucier’s attorneys argued in a court filing last week that Clinton had been "engaging in acts similar to Mr. Saucier" with information of much higher classification. It would be "unjust and unfair for Mr. Saucier to receive any sentence other than probation for a crime those more powerful than him will likely avoid," attorney Derrick Hogan wrote.

Arkancide - a collection of Clinton crime resources from across the web

The Arkancide website consists of a history of the Clintons and their misdeeds in Arkansas and the White House, a list of books about the Clintons, a section on Hillary Clinton, which is rapidly growing and becoming increasingly relevant to all of us, and a section on the press and their view of Hillary as "she who can do no wrong."

If you're in a hurry and can't spare the week or two that it would take to follow all these links, at least read the three-part history of Hillary Clinton by Cockburn and St. Clair and the 29 episodes of The Real Hillary Clinton

Arkancide.com is run by someone who doesn't believe in UFO's or that the Moon landings were faked or that JFK was shot by a guy on the grassy knoll or that Elvis is alive (sorry!) or that Princess Diana was liquidated by MI6 or... well any of that type of nonsense.

A Pew Research Center poll in May found that 27% of millennials now sympathize more with Palestinians, up from 9% in 2006 — while their generation’s support for Israel has declined in the same period from 51% to 43%.

Monsanto’s Illegal Poison Kills Neighbors’ Crops *SHOCK UPDATE* The EPA Does Nothing

Now that glyphosate has been denounced by the World Health Organization, there’s a new spray in town from our friendly neighborhood purveyor of poison, Monsanto. It hasn’t yet been approved, but given the history of blatant collusion between Monsanto and the government, there’s little doubt that it will be.

But there’s a bit of a catch: even though dicamba, the newest toxic ingredient in the Monsanto line-up, hasn’t actually been approved for this use by the EPA, it is already being widely used on genetically modified crops…And the illegal spray is killing the crops of neighboring farmers

They remember when there was far less war, far less monopoly capitalist theft, a less rich and powerful elite, less police violence against civilians, less militarization, less privatization and deregulation, fewer attacks on the social safety net, less propaganda from the media, and yet, despite the milder state of affairs, the leftwing was present raising hell about it all.

Henry Lowendorf: What we saw in Syria goes against everything we read in the United States

“When you go to Syria, which I did last month, the popularity of the government and the Syrian Arab Army is rampant. It's not out of some dream fantasy. It comes obviously from the government and the army being the only thing between living a secular life on the one hand and the hatred and violence of ISIS and the various other terrorist groups underwritten by the terrorist Saudis and US and their allies on the other. The refugees who don't leave Syria do not flee to the terrorist side, they flee to the government side, in huge numbers. So would all of us in similar circumstances. Syrians do not want their country turned into Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Yemen, Sudan, Somalia, or any of the other countries the US has liberated.”

If you don't believe in global warming, you're too 'mentally ill' to be allowed to buy a gun, says Obama

In recent days, President Obama announced new "executive actions" on guns, that included language to shore up current federal law aimed at keeping mentally ill Americans from buying guns. Some skeptics of the president's actions believe that, as is usually the case, there are ulterior motives behind his actions.

For example, some believe that the president's order may include guidance on declaring people who disagree with Obama's policies – like those regarding so-called "global warming" and "climate change" – as mentally unstable.

German Anti-Immigrant Party Leader Urges People To Arm Themselves

"People no longer feel safe, otherwise they would not be buying so many products here," a seller in North-Rhine Westphalia told Deutsche Welle in January, adding that like many of his colleagues, he has been moving "an average of three times as many alarm, gas, and signal guns as he was prior to the attacks that took place in Cologne on New Year's Eve."

Since then, the situation in Germany - and across Western Europe - has only grown more perilous, as a result of three ISIS-inspired fatal attacks by refugees over the past several weeks, which has led to not only the most recent collapse in the polls of Angela Merkel but the ongoing ascent of Germany's anti-immigrant Alternative for Germany (AfD) party.

Leaked Memo Proves Soros Ruled Ukraine In 2014: Minutes From "Breakfast With US Ambassador Pyatt"

We noted in a previous post how important Ukraine was to George Soros, with documents from DC Leaks that show Soros, and his Open Society NGO, scouring the Greek media and political landscape to push the benefits of his Ukraine coup upon a Russian leaning Greek society.

Now more documents, in the massive 2,500 leaked tranche, show the immense power and control Soros had over Ukraine immediately following the illegal Maidan government overthrow.

Soros and his NGO executives held detailed and extensive meetings with just about every actor involved in the Maidan coup: from US Ambassador Geoffrey Pyatt, to Ukraine’s Ministers of Foreign Affairs, Justice, Health, and Education.

The only person missing was Victoria Nuland, though we are sure those meeting minutes are waiting to see the light of day.

More than half of Clinton Foundation’s major donors would be barred under new rule

More than half of the Clinton Foundation’s major donors would be prevented from contributing to the charity under the self-imposed ban on corporate and foreign donors the foundation said this week it would adopt if Hillary Clinton won the White House, according to a new Washington Post analysis of foundation donations.

The findings underscore the extent to which the Clintons’ sprawling global charity has come to rely on financial support from industries and overseas interests, a point that has drawn criticism from Republicans and some liberals who have said the donations represent conflicts of interest for a potential president.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but didn't Clinton vow to do this upon becoming the US's Secretary of State, if I recall correctly?!?

The major corporations love war, and Hillary will deliver them war.

US sailor lands in prison for taking classified photos of nuclear sub

A federal court in the United States has sentenced a Navy sailor to a year in prison for taking photographs of classified areas inside a nuclear attack submarine while it was in port in the state of Connecticut.

Kristian Saucier, of Arlington, Vermont, pleaded guilty in May to “foolish mistake” of unauthorized detention of military information, according to the Guardian.

He was facing five to six years in prison under federal sentencing rules and regulations, but on Friday, when the verdict was announced, he got away with only one year in prison for taking six pictures of classified areas inside the USS Alexandria in 2009 when he was a 22-year-old machinist mate on the submarine.

German town cancels Palestinian children’s drawings exhibit for ‘highly political content

A Palestinian exhibition portraying life and destruction in Gaza was canceled by authorities in the German town of Heidelberg over “crossing a political red line.” The organizers have expressed fury about the move.

The exhibition, held under the guise of a pro-Palestinian group, “Palästina-/Nahost-Initiative” was canceled shortly before it was due to start on August 10, RNZ newspaper reports.

Entitled "Experiences, Fears and Dreams – Children in Palestine," the event was supposed to host drawings from two rehabilitation centers in Gaza and Ramallah. Some of the pieces showed explosions, burning cities and soldiers with assault rifles.

Syrian regime jets hit Kurdish positions, even after US warning

Syrian regime jets pounded US-backed Kurdish forces in northeastern Syria for a second day, even after the US-led coalition scrambled jets to protect its military advisers working on the ground.

In another escalation of Syria's bloody conflict, warplanes from President Bashar al-Assad's regime were bombarding the city of Hasakeh -- targeting Kurdish forces that for months have worked closely with coalition military advisers helping local fighters combat the Islamic State group.

On Thursday, the United States sent fighter jets to head off air strikes conducted by regime planes and to protect coalition advisers, but the Syrian planes had left by the time they arrived.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears that I have to, once again, politely remind the US government and military that the Sovereign Country of Syria does not have to do ANYTHING the US government or military orders them to do, because it is THEIR COUNTRY, and not ours.

Russia was invited to take care of the jihadists by Syrian President al-Assad; the US government has not been invited to do so.

The Boy in the Ambulance: US State Department Funded Groups Behind Latest ‘Iconic Image’ Designed to Demonize Russia and Encourage Further Bloodshed in Syria

You could, for example consider the source of this image and the claim that Russia or Assad is to blame: the Aleppo Media Center. The Aleppo Media Center is a project of the Syrian Expatriates Organization (SEO). The SEO is what it sounds like, a group of American citizens of Syrian extraction who have their offices on K Street in Washington, D.C., a street that is famous for being the center of the American political lobbying industry, with numerous think tanks, lobbyists, and advocacy groups based there. The SEO received generous funding over the past few years (to the tune of $4-500,000) from unknown donors, although government agencies like USAID and NED are likely sources. The SEO appears to have played a prominent role in fostering the carnage in Syria from the outset.

Syria is on the offensive seizing back the most of the 1070 apartments and the air force technical college. They made other important gains in Damascus, Latakia, and Deir Ezzor but of course the war continues. In Libya the power of the green resistance continues to grow despite the dirty war being waged on the country by NATO. In Turkey Erdogan is on the rampage purging his opponents. In Crimea the situation is tense but thankfully the people have been spared a wave of terror bombings and assassinations thanks to the quick response of the FSB and the Russian military. Donbass remains under fire it’s plight forgotten by the outside world which continues to ignore the menace of fascism in Ukraine.

Victims of clashes overwhelm hospital in Indian Kashmir

More than 40 days of clashes between protesters and security forces have overwhelmed the main hospital in Indian-administered Kashmir, where some patients with severe injuries said they had been beaten in their homes by troops.

House-to-house searches continued on Friday, authorities said, for suspected ringleaders of street protests set off by the killing on July 8 of a popular field commander of a Pakistan-based separatist group.

At least 65 people have been killed and 6,000 injured in the ensuing clashes, many of them wounded by shotgun rounds fired by security forces enforcing a curfew across the Muslim-majority region.

Pictures taken by a Reuters photographer at Srinagar's main SMHS Hospital on Thursday showed men with wounds across their backs and buttocks they said had been caused by beatings.

Another showed a crying boy, his head swathed in bandages, being comforted by his family, who said he had been wounded by shotgun pellets.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have a memo for Indian President Pranab Mukherjee; sack Lieutenant Hooda, and right the heck now!!

Apparently, those under his command thought that this behaviour was perfectly acceptable against the protesters.

And while you are at it, I have a word for you, nearly guaranteed to de-escalate tensions in the Kashmir region: that word, sir is: referendum.

You know, peaceful, self-determination as enshrined in the charter of the UN to which, I believe India is still a signatory?!?

There is a concept in the Hindu religious tradition: that concept is karma, which means you are constantly exercising both moral, and spiritual, responsibility for your actions, and your choices.

You, sir, as the President of India, have a chance to create some very good karma for yourself, Kashmir, and the nation of India, by making what I know has to be a difficult, and perhaps, almost dangerous choice; to give the long promised referendum to the people of Kashmir as to whether they wish to stay with India; join with Pakistan; or to become an independent nation in its own right.

The costs for not going ahead with this referendum, may well mean more riots, more bloodshed, and ultimately, a civil war erupting in Kashmir: I cannot believe, for one moment, that either you, or the Indian people want to see this happen.

Home About Antiwar.com Donate Blog US Casualties Contact Latest NewsUS Withdraws Most of Staff Involved in Saudi War Against Yemen

The Pentagon has withdrawn the vast majority of the military personnel involved in Saudi Arabia’s war against Yemen, officials revealed today, saying there are now “fewer than five” troops inside Saudi Arabia participating in the operation, down from nearly 45 at the peak of America’s involvement.

The announcement comes at the end of a week of several high-profile incidents in which Saudi warplanes attacked and killed significant numbers of Yemeni civilians, including an attack on a school and the bombing of a Doctors Without Borders facility.

Pentagon officials, however, insist that the drawdown is unrelated to international concerns about civilian deaths, and that it “does not diminish US commitment to supporting Saudi-led military operations.” They added that a re-escalation was possible.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have a memo for the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Dunsford: this drawdown in no way excuses US military complicity in these US- government- enabled, horrific war crimes the US been partner to, in these shellings of schools, hospitals, and the indiscriminate slaughter of civilians, in which the Saudi military obviously takes so much pride.

I never thought, when I was younger, that one of the true charactarisations of the United States and its Military, by 2016, would be "partners in war crimes", but here we are, are we not, General?!?

When the end justifies the means, and desired outcome, at the end of this slaughter, is the geopolitical goal of removing the Houthi rebels and replacing them with Al-Hadi's government, then collateral damage never really matters, does it, General?!?

"Vladimir Yelchenko met with UN Deputy Secretary General Jan Eliasson. They discussed Vladimir Putin’s illegal stay in Crimea. Yelchenko also drew Jan Eliasson’s attention to concentration of Russian armaments along the Russian-Ukrainian border in Crimea and Donbass," the mission said on Twitter.

Putin arrived in Crimea on Friday to meet with permanent members of Russia’s Security Council after a recent attempt of an act of sabotage on the peninsula on the part of Kiev.

Students Fight Back Against Political Correctness - The Rise Of "Cultural Libertarianism"

In both the United States and the United Kingdom, conservative and libertarian viewpoints have endured censorship on the Internet and on college campuses.

This has given rise to a new generation of animated and impassioned students keen on partaking in what’s been aptly described as the “cultural libertarian” movement.

Young millennials engaged in this movement come from a variety of backgrounds but are able to unite based on a fervent disdain for those that believe there are boundaries to what’s deemed “acceptable” speech - a hatred of authority; and a love of freedom and mischief.

As a conservative writer and student at King’s College London, I have been actively campaigning against political correctness.

China and the US Are Approaching Dangerous Seas

A combination of recent events, underpinned by long-running historical strains reaching back more than 60 years, has turned the western Pacific into one of the most hazardous spots on the globe. The tension between China and the United States “is one of the most striking and dangerous themes in international politics,” says The Financial Times’ longtime commentator and China hand, Gideon Rachman.

In just the past five months, warships from both countries – including Washington’s closest ally in the region, Japan – have done everything but ram one another. And, as Beijing continues to build bases on scattered islands in the South China Sea, the United States is deploying long-range nuclear capable strategic bombers in Australia and Guam.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As an American, I love my country very dearly; that having been said, I feel, as a Christian pacifist activist, that I have a moral responsibility to publicly witness to the truth, when I see this country going off the rails, as it is right now, both economically and geopolitically.

So I have a statement for both the Chinese Leadership, and the Chinese people; thinking Americans absolutely do not want war with your country.

There was a social philosopher who lived a long time ago, by the name of Karl Marx, who made the observation: "All wars are economic".

The US economy, having been horrifically mismanaged by the Federal Reserve and the US government, for so many decades, is close to entering a tailspin moment.

And what I mean by that is, although the government and corporate media keep attempting to reassure the American people that everything is just fine, thinking Americans know it is not.

American jobs continue to be outsourced/offshored at breathtaking speed, absolutely destroying what was left of the middle class in this country. Poverty, and very alarmingly, childhood poverty, particularly in our southern states, has reached breath-taking proportions.

3 million more children live in poverty, under the Obama administration

Over 90 million Americans who want to work cannot find jobs, but are not included in the US Bureau of Labor Statistics in the unemployment rate, to make employment look far better than it is.

What We Know About the 92 Million Americans Who Aren’t in the Labor Force

There is some truly insane thinking in Washington which supports the idea that the only thing that can save the US economy is another World War, as insanely psychotic as that may sound. After all, the depressions before World War 1 and World War II got "mended" during and after the process of those wars, in which the US and its allies were victorious.

I understand that China has a clear, historic, and legal, claim to the South China Sea.

But in looking at the demonization against China, particularly after the judgement at the ICC, which did not rule in China's favor, I can hear the war drums, beating very loudly against both China and Russia.

The US government is looking for some excuse - any, really - to label both countries as the "bad guy", and ultimately declare war against them, to attempt to misdirect legitimate US citizens' anger against it, for conditions which the Federal Reserve and the US government have created, and through which the 1% have benefited.

These potential wars against China and Russia will be about hurting their currencies and economies, and preserving the hegemony of the US petrodollar.

The horrific human cost to such potential wars is not at all in the calculus of the US government's deliberations. After all, it is most generally not the sons and daughters of the US "elite" who wind up fighting, dying, and getting maimed for life in these wars; it's most generally other people's kids.

But both countries have the opportunity to walk away from the edge of this precipice.

That is at the G-20 Summit, to be held during September 4th and 5th in Hangzou, China.

Both President Obama and China's President, Xi Jinping, will be attending.

Therefore, I strongly urge that the Presidents of both of our countries meet, and discuss ways to diffuse the tensions around this issue; the costs of not doing this may well be both horrific, and irreversible.

Soros Leaks: The Most Important Story You're Not Hearing

One of the biggest stories is unfolding right now, and most people probably haven’t heard it. It’s the leaks of thousands of emails and documents from George Soros’ “Open Society Foundation”, that detail strategy, tactics, grants, and more from Soros’ global network.

From the U.S. to Europe Soros’ largesse has been exposed as a major prop behind much of our society’s hegemonic liberal discourse. Light is also shed on the plans and tactics being used, particularly against Russia, to undermine traditional family structures and European identity worldwide.

All the Critics Who Bashed “Hillary’s America” Documentary Might Want To See This Fact…

Since the public release of the film on July, 22nd it has received mass amounts of attention, accompanied by mixed reviews.

For example, the film only received a 4% rating by the film critics on Rotten Tomatoes. But it received an 84% positive response in audience reviews.

Despite all this, the film has had groundbreaking results. According to The Hollywood Reporter, D’Souza’s film has become the highest-grossing documentary of 2016. Just five days after its release, the documentary made over $5 million.

Trump stays on script to hammer Clinton

Donald Trump hammered Hillary Clinton on trade and immigration at a rally in Michigan on Friday, as he made the case that Democrats' policies have failed the black community.

The speech was notable in that Trump used a teleprompter – something he’s done in the past for major policy addresses, but has rarely been seen at his massive rallies. He also used a prompter at Thursday's rally in Charlotte, N.C., and the GOP nominee seems to be growing more comfortable reading from a screen.

Some of Trump’s earlier speeches were stilted or stiff, but on Friday he was smoother and at times he left the script to improvise without going too far off track.

Renowned lawyer who represented Julian Assange died after being struck by train. Coincidence?

One of the UK’s most respected international criminal lawyers who was representing Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has died after being hit by a train in West Hampstead.

Married father of two John Jones, QC, worked at renowned legal chambers, Doughty Street and died last Monday morning. Police say they are not treating the death as suspicious.

The 48-year-old barrister has been described as “a giant in his field” by colleagues, who said that his death is “a monumental loss to the cause of international justice and human rights.”

Ryan Bundy is being tortured. Multnomah County jail is notorious for dead and injured inmates!

Ryan Bundy is in Solitary Confinement until after his trial. This means that he will have limited opportunities to prepare for defending his freedom. How did this happen?

The FBI agents are already under investigation for lying during that incident. They claimed that they did not fire their weapons. However, it has been shown that there were two bullet casings that were illegally removed from the scene. All of OSP’s shots have been accounted for, therefore the shots seem to have come from the FBI.

Bundy has maintained that he does not give permission to State or Federal authorities to remove the evidence from his arm. He has said that he is willing to have it removed, however, he has certain conditions under which he will agree, including having an independent forensic analysis done. The Federal authorities refuse these terms.

Japan discovers Chinese ‘pier for warships’ near disputed islands

China has constructed a vanguard “pier for warships” on an islet off the port city of Wenzhou, Japanese media warned, calling the development a boost of Beijing’s claims on the Tokyo-administered Senkaku (Diaoyu) Islands and disputed waters around them.
The new 80-meter-long installation, already dubbed the “pier for warships” by the Japanese media, was allegedly erected on Nanji Island, one of 52 islands in the Nanji chain that are part of China's Zhejiang Province, Kyodo news reports.

Several Chinese military vessels have already been noticed docking on the island, according to the report. Meanwhile The Japan Times’ sources added that the pier is also capable of accommodating landing craft.

In a society ruled by violent, coercive and oppressive institutions comprised of elite charlatans, loving nothing better than to regulate and collectivize us like cattle, steal from us in the form of taxation, and strip us of our individual liberty, sovereignty and freedom until we are left unwilling pawns in the state’s destruction, it is crucial that we practice resistance. We must rise up against the hand of the state, dismantling the throne of our oppressors.

Aerial close encounter between US, Syrian jets

Two American F-22s on patrol over Hasakah, Syria, flew within a mile of two Syrian Su-24 fighter jets and "encouraged" them to leave Friday, a US defense official told CNN.

The close encounter comes only a day after two Syrian warplanes attacked the Kurds, a key US ally, forcing US special operations forces to be withdrawn from their position in northern Syria.
The American aircraft are part of the beefed-up US air combat patrols in the area that the Pentagon had announced following Thursday's attack.
The pilots of the F-22 Raptors tried to call the Syrian aircraft cockpit-to-cockpit but got no response, the US official added.
US defense officials had told CNN earlier that the military had pulled US special operations forces from their northern Syria position after the Syrian military began bombing nearby, attacking Kurdish positions in and around the city of Hasakah.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to Barbara Starr, and Ryan Browne: it is apparent that I need to politely remind you that Russia's military was invited to get rid of the jihadists by the sitting, and democratically elected, President Al Assad; the US military has not been invited to do so.

The US government's narrative, over the last 4 years, has been to create regime change Syria, and, by any means necessary, install a Western-centric government in Damascus, no matter what the cost is to the Syrian people.

One can only speculate what the US government is going to be willing to do, if either Russia, or the Syrian Army shoots down, or kills on the ground, more of the US government's alleged "moderate rebels"

And I would also like to politely remind both of you that, should there be a military confrontation between the US military and the Russian military over Syria, the US military does not have the weaponry; the troop strength; the money; or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to a conventional military confrontation against Russia.

Yes, the US government spends an obscene amount of money on military hardware and software; but the bang for its buck is completely neutered by the incestuous relationship between defense contractors, and those politicians which both green light defense contractors, and willingly take campaign contributions from those same defense contractors.

Publicly Funded NPR Follows the Left’s Lead, Closes Comments Sections

Publicly funded National Public Radio has announced that it will be closing its comments sections in a bid to “move the conversation to social media,” following the lead of many left-wing news sites in doing so.
In a blog post by NPR public editor Elizabeth Jensen, she said that although the decision is “sure to upset a loyal core of its audience,” the company would now prefer to “let social media pick up the slack.”

Scott Montgomery, the managing editor for NPR digital news cited the reason for the move as the company’s need to engage more in social media, saying that NPR has “reached the point where we’ve realized that there are other, better ways to achieve the same kind of community discussion around the issues we raise in our journalism.”

WHO MANUAL DIRECTING "AUTHORITIES" ON HOW TO RESPOND TO VACCINE DENIERS IN PUBLIC

The endlessly increasing vaccine push on the public, at the behest of pharmaceutical companies, can be looked at as nothing more than a psychological operation (PSYOP). From the European Regional Office of the World Health Organization (WHO) comes the 2016 "Best Practice Guidance 1st Edition: How to Respond to Vocal Vaccine Deniers in Public". From this guide parents and communities will understand how to see through the simplistic messaging maneuvers and counter the ongoing public PSYOP. The WHO's guiding document opens on page one with the following statement:

"This guidance document provides basic broad principles for a spokesperson of any health authority on how to respond to vocal vaccine deniers.The suggestions are based on psychological research on persuasion, on research in public health, communication studies and on WHO risk
communication guidelines."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am no science denier, or anti-vaxxer; having said that, however, I have found some very effective ways of enhancing my wellness which do not involve conventional medical treatment.

Trust me; I would never be a Christian Scientist with appendicitis; but understanding something about nutrition and wellness has kept me in reasonably good shape, at 67, which is a real gift at this age.

I would encourage all of our readers to do the due dilligence, and educate themselves about the power of nutrition to augment health.

When I have friends locally who have just had a really lousy health diagnosis, I encourage them to have a nutritional consult at a medical center under 7th-Day Adventist management.

As ovolacto-vegetarians, these people have health statistics that are, generally, off the chart, in terms of great health outcomes. They have learned to use food as a weapon against disease, and they have my complete and utter respect for having done so.

Activists from more than 50 organizations came together in the Movement for Black Lives and published the Vision for Black Lives, which identifies key aspects of the oppression of Black people and puts forth solutions to the systemic violence and oppression that target Black people in the United States. This statement proposes a set of demands for activists to advance that address racialized poverty, police violence, environmental racism and myriad other issues that plague Black communities in the United States.

While the vision inspired activists in the US and around the world, not everyone was excited. The Vision for Black Lives statement was immediately met with a slew of criticism from Zionist organizations and publications.

U.S. DEFENSE CONTRACTORS TELL INVESTORS RUSSIAN THREAT IS GREAT FOR BUSINESS

The escalating anti-Russian rhetoric in the U.S. presidential campaign comes in the midst of a major push by military contractors to position Moscow as a potent enemy that must be countered with a drastic increase in military spending by NATO countries.

Weapon makers have told investors that they are relying on tensions with Russia to fuel new business in the wake of Russian’s annexation of Crimea and modest increases in its military budget.

In particular, the arms industry — both directly and through its arsenal of hired-gun, think-tank experts and lobbyists – is actively pressuring NATO member nations to hike defense spending in line with the NATO goal for member states to spend at least 2 percent of gross domestic product on defense.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

1. Russia did not annex Crimea; after the putsch in Kiev in 2014, which threw Yanukovich, the duly elected President, under the proverbial bus, and anointed Poroshenko as Ukraine's President, Crimean authorities understood that there was no legitimate government in Kiev. They therefore held a free and fair referendum, to decide if they wanted to stay with Ukraine, post putsch, or petition the Russian Federation to join. In an overwhelming vote, Crimeans decided to to petition the Russian Federation to join. The Russian Federation accepted this request. Russia did absolutely nothing wrong here.
2. It is very alarming, but perfectly predictable to me, that weapons manufacturers and banks can smell money in the bloodshed which is almost surely to come from any kind of US/Russian military conflict regarding Ukraine, as the demonisation of Russia, which you see in all the presstitute/whorespondent outlets, continues to escalate.

CIA WHISTLEBLOWER JEFFREY STERLING CLOSE TO DEATH IN FEDERAL PRISON

Jeffrey Sterling, one of the most recent victims of the U.S. government’s war on whistleblowers, may be at risk of dying in a Colorado prison.

In an interview published Tuesday in The Colorado Independent, the wife of the CIA whistleblower warned that his health is failing due to inadequate medical care at FCI Englewood, the federal prison where he is serving a sentence of three-and-a-half years.

“I’m concerned my husband may die,” Holly Sterling told the Independent’s Corey Hutchins. “I’m extremely concerned.”In May 2015, Jeffrey Sterling was convicted on nine felony charges, including seven charges of violating the Espionage Act, for revealing information about Operation Merlin, a secret CIA operation carried out under President Bill Clinton to undermine Iran’s nuclear program.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sterling's death, through neglect, is the Federal Government's desired outcome here, as a vicious example for others who may feel morally compelled to speak out regarding the cost/benefit relationship of various of its programs.

PORTLAND BANS ANTI-CLIMATE CHANGE MATERIALS IN SCHOOLS

The Portland Public School Board voted earlier this year to ban any classroom materials, including textbooks and other material purchased by the district, that cast doubt on the existence of climate change.

This new rule was passed unanimously by the board’s members, who agreed with testimony from Bill Bigelow, a former Portland teacher, when he said,

“We don’t want kids in Portland learning material courtesy of the fossil fuel industry.”

Materials that present climate change as a theory rather than as a fact will no longer be used and, going forward, they will not be purchased by the district for students. Additionally, materials must make it clear that human activity is responsible for the rapid climate change occurring on our planet. The resolution also calls for the superintendent and staff to develop an education plan for teaching students about climate justice.

A student of Lincoln High School, Gaby Lemieux, said in testimony at the hearing,

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yes, I understand that we have to mandate the companies which produce fossil fuel to become as environmentally friendly as possible.

But we cannot stop there; the US government has got to send one little slice of the money it spends on its wars of conquest to control fossil fuel resources to create truly usable alternative energy; the kind of energy which can power a tank, or fly a plane.

That would be both logical and intelligent.

But the people desirous of banning books which don't spew the codswallop of human caused global warming are missing one critical fact; how hot, or how cold, the earth gets is primarily dependent on the sun, and it's cycles.

The predictions for winter 2016-2017 from the Old Farmer's Almanac (which has an annoying reputation for being generally correct), are as follows.

Get ready for a shift from last year! For the winter of 2016–2017, we expect temperatures to be much colder than last winter but still above normal. Winter 2017 will also feature below-normal snowfall overall; the snowy exception is the northern tier of the U.S., which can expect to be blanketed in white. Winter will be colder in much of the eastern two-thirds of the nation. Exceptions will be in a swatch from North Dakota to Maine, which will have below-normal temperatures. Most of the Pacific states will have below-normal temperatures, with above-normal temperatures in the Intermountain region and Desert Southwest. Snowfall will be above normal from southern New England and western New York southward through the Appalachians, but not in northern New England. Snowfall with also be above what’s typical from eastern Minnesota to the UP (Upper Peninsula) of Michigan and southward to St. Louis, Missouri; and from central North Dakota westward to the Pacific. We expect below-normal snowfall in most other places that normally receive snow. Precipitation will be below normal across most of the southern two-thirds of the nation. However, precipitation will be above normal in the North, with the primary exceptions being above-normal rainfall in northern California, southern Oregon, portions of the western Lower Lakes region, and Florida. With rainfall below normal in most of California, the drought there will continue. In Canada, brace for more snow and colder-than-average temperatures throughout most parts of the country. The exceptions to the winter of white will be Manitoba, portions of Saskatchewan, and northern sections across the land. While snowfall will generally be below normal in these areas, temperatures will remain chilly

Frankly, with an 80% success rate in their predictions over the last 225 years, I would more likely place my bets on this than ANYTHING the "Warmistas" have to say.

Powell: 'No recollection' of book's Clinton email tale

Colin Powell's representatives reportedly say the former secretary of state has "no recollection" of a conversation in which he was said to have advised Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton to use a personal email for all but classified communications while in office.

The conversation has taken on new significance in light of a report in the New York Times that said Clinton told the FBI that Powell had advised her to use private email as secretary of state. Clinton served as secretary of state from 2009 to 2013 for President Barack Obama, while Powell served in that capacity for President George W. Bush from 2001 to 2005.

Election Justice USA finds that Bernie Sanders lost an estimated 184 delegates to Election Fraud

We have aimed to provide an overview of the evidence for various types of fraud and targeted voter suppression impacting the outcomes of the 2016 Democratic presidential primaries. After covering the legal background and the history of Election Justice USA’s legal actions, our best efforts to combat election fraud and voter suppression, we gave a thorough treatment of:

1) Targeted voter suppression

2) Registration tampering

3) Illegal voter purges

4) Exit polling discrepancies

5) Evidence for voting machine tampering

6) The security (or lack thereof) of various voting machine types

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The leaked DNC emails confirm the Democratic Party leadership aided and abetted Hillary's theft. And if they did it to the voters in the primaries, they are planning to do it again in November.

If a government cannot prove the honesty and accuracy of the elections by which they claim authority over the people, then the people are neither legally nor morally obligated to obey that government's dictates nor to pay its bills nor to send their children to die in that government's wars, and may with full moral justification resist with lethal force efforts to coerce said dictatorship, looting, and conscription.

GANG MEMBERS CHANT “BLACK LIVES MATTER” WHILE BEATING UP WHITE VICTIM

Gang members chanted “black lives matter” as they viciously beat up a white victim in Charleston as part of an initiation ritual, a story that has received no national media attention.

In a video posted on Facebook, Brandon Reiter relates how he was driving home before picking someone up to “help them get home”.

A woman was “frantically waving her arms on the side of the road” and Reiter offered her a ride, reports Counton2.com.

When he arrived at the destination, Reiter’s passenger stole the tip money he had on his counter and when Reiter exited the vehicle, he was immediately surrounded by two black men and had a gun put to his head.

A member of the gang known as “Blue” ordered the other gang member to shoot Reiter, before Reiter was able to snatch the gun away and run back to his truck

However, other members of the gang were waiting for him and subjected Reiter to a brutal beat down that was part of a gang initiation ritual.

Webmaster's Commentary:
