‘Female Surgeons Better Than Men’ Claims Are Flawed, Rights Activist Tells RT

According to research by the University of Toronto, people who undergo surgery by female surgeons are less likely to die within a month than if they were operated on by male surgeons.

But questions have been raised over whether the study would have even been published – let alone carried out – had the findings come to the opposite conclusion.

Catalonia: What’s Next? – Justin Raimondo

At a time when supra-national bureaucracies and globalist initiatives are being foisted on ordinary people, the Catalan people are rising up and taking their destiny into their own hands.

Israeli defense experts warn against dropping Iran nuke deal

JERUSALEM — If President Donald Trump moves to scuttle the landmark 2015 nuclear deal with Iran, Israel’s nationalist government can be expected to be the loudest — and perhaps only — major player to applaud.

But the true picture is more complicated than what Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu might portray: There is a strong sense among his own security establishment that there are few good alternatives, that the deal has benefited Israel, and that U.S. credibility could be squandered in the turbulent Middle East in ways that could harm Israel itself.

Julian Assange on Roger Stone & Accusations About WikiLeaks and Trump Campaign Ties to Russia

Microsoft has joined Facebook in saying it is investigating whether Russian operatives paid for “inappropriate” pro-Trump ads on its Bing search engine and other platforms. Social media giant Facebook has said a Russian company placed thousands of ads on their network at a cost of more than $100,000, including some that targeted states crucial to Trump’s victory.

CIA Director Mike Pompeo has blasted Wikileaks as a hostile intelligence service that is often abetted by state actors like Russia, and Trump adviser Roger Stone declined to confirm to the House Intelligence Committee that he was directly in contact with WikiLeaks about damaging information on then-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

In this case, Burr and his co-chair, Senator Mark Warner have already accepted the findings of a hastily slapped-together Intelligence report that was the work of “hand-picked” analysts who were likely chosen to produce conclusions that jibed with a particular political agenda. In other words, the intelligence was fixed to fit the policy.

Look at the women most opposed to Trump, the Ashley Judds, the Gwynneth Paltrows. They were all used by Weinstein or someone like him. More will come out every day.

Weinstein scandal: What it tells us about celebs, politics & Hollywood

Harvey Weinstein’s sexual harassment scandal isn’t only an indictment of his twisted soul, but of America’s as well.

The story of Weinstein, the uber-powerful film producer, co-founder of Miramax Films and major donor to Democratic politicians, who got fired from his job as co-Chairman of The Weinstein Company after the New York Times ran an article exposing his serial sexual harassment of female employees, is such a perfect storm of corruption, depravity and hypocrisy that it exquisitely encapsulates the moral decay of America.

The New York Times piece revealed that Weinstein has settled at least eight different sexual harassment lawsuits over the years. The article was just the tip of a really grotesque iceberg, for in its wake a plethora of other claims has surfaced.

Trump sends second aircraft carrier to Korean Peninsula with 7500 marines aboard

Of course, this comes after rumors swirled earlier this week that North Korea is preparing to fire multiple short-range rockets around the opening of the Chinese Communist Party’s twice-a-decade congress on Oct. 18th.

In Las Vegas, the casino is always watching — and yet it missed Stephen Paddock

Casinos like Mandalay Bay “spend millions and millions of dollars on security,” said a surveillance expert who helped install an early version of Mandalay Bay's security systems after it opened in the 1990s. The system he installed had close to 1,200 cameras, and he guesses Mandalay Bay has about 3,000 cameras now.

“They’re all recording 24/7. Anybody who walks through that door is an asset. They’re going to take care of their assets,” said the expert, who declined to be identified because of concerns of future litigation.

But hallways can be difficult for security cameras to capture — they might be too long or too dark to show what's actually happening — so hotels instead put cameras on bottlenecks like elevator banks. “Typically they want to see who’s coming onto the floor and off the floor, and they can tell now who goes into rooms with the keycards,” the expert said.

Las Vegas Shooting Victim: “There Was 100% More Than One Shooter,” Gates To Concert Were Locked Shortly Before Attack

Las Vegas mass shooting victim Rocky Palermo was shot in the pelvis during the horrific attack and is now speaking out about what he saw and believes happened, including the presence of multiple shooters as well as locked concert gates and police telling frantic civilians to go in the other direction.

Palermo, who has done various interviews since the attack, appeared on “The Blast” with a series of shocking comments that correlate with various other reports indicating that multiple shooters carried out the attack and that the FBI is actively covering this up.

“I definitely do believe that there was 100% more than one shooter, every other person that I’ve talked to that did unfortunately get hit as well, have all said the same things,” Palermo detailed.

The man then goes on to explain that after being shot he ran “about 200 yards” to hide behind a car, all the while hearing bullets fly past him at what he believes was ground level.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This reeks of setup. And this article in USSA News, posted today, confirms some very dicey inconsistencies about the story from the get-go, including interviewees getting their phones and labtops wiped clean:

'I opened the door and he was sitting there masturbating': English actress accuses Harvey Weinstein of 1990 sexual assault that 'ruined her career'

Sophie Dix said her career was 'massively cut down' after the film producer allegedly pushed her onto his bed at a London hotel in 1990 before 'tugging at her clothes' and exposing himself.

...

She alleges that the evening then took a dramatic turn, explaining: 'Before I knew it, he started trying to pull my clothes off and pin me down and I just kept saying "No, no, no". But he was really forceful.

'I remember him pulling at my trousers and stuff and looming over me and I just sort of – I am a big strong girl and I bolted ... ran for the bathroom and locked the door.'

She added: 'After a while I remember opening the door and seeing him just there facing the door masturbating, so I quickly closed the door again and locked it. Then when I heard room service come to the door I just ran.'

Is Harvey Weinstein BROKE? Movie mogul borrowed $4 million from crisis loan firm - and slashed $1 million from Hamptons estate price then sold his mom's house for $600,000 discount

  • DailyMail.com finds evidence he took out an $4 million mortgage from a crisis loan company on his Greenwich Village townhouse earlier this year
  • He turned to crisis loan company for the cash advance despite having a $6 million mortgage already on home worth estimated $12.5 million
  • His total personal mortgage borrowings are now at least $15.5 million, which at the average mortgage rate would cost him $71,000 a month
  • Weinstein is also hawking his most valuable property, an estate in the Hamptons which he and wife Georgina Chapman bought in 2012, slashing the price from $13.5 million to $12.8 million
  • And he sold his mother's home in Westport, Connecticut, for $1.65 million just two days before the story of his sex shame broke - having cut the price by $600,000 to seal a deal

    Is Hillary REALLY giving away Harvey's tainted donations? Confusion mounts over Clinton's pledge - while her usual charity is her OWN foundation and she could get a handy tax break too

    Weinstein gave $33,590 to the Hillary Victory Fund and $5,400 to Hillary for America during the 2016 election.

    Clinton indicated she will donate the Weinstein's money out of her own income rather than from the campaign organization.

    'I give 10 percent of my income to charity every year. This will be part of that,' Clinton said in an interview with CNN on Wednesday.

    Tax experts said under this scenario she would be able to deduct this money from her income taxes.

    Julian Block, a former special agent at the IRS and a tax attorney in New York, said her pledge raised significant questions.

    'He's an actual PREDATOR': Emma Thompson calls out Harvey Weinstein and says she 'spent her twenties trying to get old men's tongues out of her mouth' as she details rampant sexual harassment in film industry

    Emma Thompson says she had no idea that Harvey Weinstein had been sexually harassing and assaulting young stars over the past three decades, but the actress and Oscar-winning screenwriter is not surprised she told BBC News.

    The British star, 58, said that behavior like Weinstein's is 'endemic to the system,' and something she has experienced with 'many' other men in similar positions over the years.

    Asked if there were others in Hollywood like Weinstein, she said: ‘Of course, many, many...I spent my 20s trying to keep old men’s tongues out of my mouth.’

    She also dismissed the idea that Weinstein's behavior was the result of addiction.

    'I don't think you can describe him as a sex addict. He's a predator,' said Thompson.

    'He's an actual predator, he's dangerous and what he's done and what he's doing is criminal.'

    Power Grid Failures: CA Wildfires Are Now A Serious Critical Catastrophic Event

    The death toll continues to rise because of the California wildfires currently scorching across wine country. With 23 dead and hundreds missing, the fires are labeled as a “serious critical catastrophic event” complete with power grid failures.

    The wind known as the Diablo is picking up again, the air is dry, there is no rain in sight and the killer wildfires that have scorched the wine country of Northern California remain almost completely uncontained. Officials warned Wednesday that some of the big fires could merge making them almost impossible to contain. While thousands have been told to evacuate or prepare to leave their homes, hundreds are missing and 23 are dead.

    Hurricane Rally Stalls: GM Forced To Idle Detroit Plant Amid "Slow Demand"

    General Motors' stock has experienced an unprecedented rally over the past six weeks as wall street has increasingly bought into the thesis that a one-time, short-lived, pull forward of demand from folks needing to purchase replacement cars following Hurricane Harvey in Texas and Hurricane Irma in Florida suddenly means that the company is worth about 30% more than it was the day before Hurricane Harvey struck.

    General Motors Co. plans to close a Detroit factory through the end of the year and deepen production cuts to slow-selling cars the plant manufactures, idling some workers and letting go others around the holiday season in response to weak sales.

    GM will temporarily close its Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant for about six weeks starting in mid-November, said people familiar with the plan. The move will lay off roughly 1,500 workers who help build four low-demand models at the plant.

    The little red pill being pushed on the elderly

    The maker of a little red pill intended to treat a rare condition is raking in hundreds of millions of dollars a year as it aggressively targets frail and elderly nursing home residents for whom the drug may be unnecessary or even unsafe,?a CNN investigation has found.

    And much of the money is coming straight from the federal government.
    The pill, called Nuedexta, is approved to treat a disorder marked by sudden and uncontrollable laughing or crying -- known as pseudobulbar affect, or PBA. This condition afflicts less than 1% of all Americans, based on a calculation using the drugmaker's own figures, and it is most commonly associated with people who have multiple sclerosis (MS) or ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    One of the many reasons why drug companies are so financially successful, is that doctors are compensated for prescribing "off book" prescriptions by the pharmaceutical houses manufacturing theer drugs.

    I know this from experience, because it actually happened to me.

    At 68, if an MD starts talking about an "off book" prescription for something I am dealing with, meaning it has not been tested for specific issues for which they want me to take a drug, I have zero problem asking them: "Are you being compensated by the manufacturer of this drug to prescribe it"?!?

    It is a VERY reasonable question to ask your MD; if they balk and hem and haw, they probably are being compensated by the drug manufacturer.

    Why U.S. and Saudi Arabia Back Rohingya in Myanmar

    Demonstrations, protests and online petitions have appeared worldwide to defend the struggle of the Rohingya people who have been driven from Myanmar into exile. What is of concern is that political forces with no history of or interest in defending the rights of these oppressed people, including the U.S. and Saudi regimes, have joined this effort.

    While he was threatening People’s Korea, Iran and Venezuela in his United Nations speech, U.S. President Donald Trump also demanded that the U.N. Security Council take “strong and swift action” to end violence against Myanmar’s Rohingya population.

    U.S. government officials, including U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Vice President Mike Pence, have called for immediate action and delivery of humanitarian aid to the Rohingya.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    One could not help but note the intense irony of this Administration's policy on Myanmar and their treatment of the Rohingyas; but it reminded me, again, of Karl Marx's observation that all wars are economic in their origin, and how completely correct that assessment remains, even in the 21st century.

    Israel cancels ban on racist answers in civics exam

    The Education Ministry has canceled a prohibition against giving racist answers on the civics matriculation exam.

    The original rule, published shortly before the school year began, stated that “racist or inflammatory statements” would result in the response receiving no credit. But a few days ago, the head of the ministry’s pedagogical secretariat, Moshe Weinstock, rescinded this rule, on the grounds, according to the ministry, that “we need to inculcate the change gradually.”

    Weinstock was appointed by Education Minister Naftali Bennett. Members of the ministry’s civics advisory committee who are affiliated with Bennett’s Habayit Hayehudi party supported his reversal.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    Regarding the education of its kids, what else else would one expect of such a vilely apartheid, self-proclaimed theocracy with nuclear weapons?!?

    Democracy and peace are not on Tel Aviv's agendea whatsoever, but it wants the acquisition of territory, and by any means necesssary.

    And to demonstrate what I mean, look at the map of Eretz Israel, which is how the Zionists in Israel want to redraw its borders; notice how many other countries lose territory in its quest to create a country with borders which stretch from the Nile to the Euphrates Rivers:

    Trump’s Disturbing New Guantánamo Policy: Allowing Hunger Strikers to Starve to Death

    Disturbing news from Guantánamo, via the human rights organization Reprieve. Yesterday, in a press release, Reprieve explained that the authorities at Guantánamo have stopped force-feeding hunger-striking prisoners, a practice that has existed for ten years, because of a new Trump administration policy.”

    Hunger strikers have existed at Guantánamo almost since the prison opened, and in 2013 a prison-wide hunger strike drew worldwide condemnation for President Obama’s inaction in moving towards closing the prison, as he had promised on his second day in office. Inconvenienced by Republican lawmakers, who had raised considerable obstacles to the release of prisoners, Obama had chosen not to challenge the Republicans, and had, instead, done nothing. The hunger strike changed all that, but towards the end of 2013, after the release of prisoners resumed, the authorities at Guantánamo stopped reporting the numbers of men who were on a hunger strike.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    These are not "Unlawful Combatants", as the Bush regime characterized these men; they are prisoners of war, and as such, should be afforded all the rights and priveleges afforded by the Geneva Conventions, to which, I believe, the US government is still (allegedly) a signator.

    What the Geneva Conventions said about the treatment of Prisoners of War

    They should be either tried for their alleged crimes, or released to a country willing to take them in; it is just that simple.

    But what the US military must be terrified about, once these men die from the consequences of their self-induced starvation, are their autopsies getting out, which will most likely demonstarate that for some of them, water boarding was not the only torture they endured.

    In blocking arms to Yemen, Saudi Arabia squeezes a starving population

    Late last year, the Kota Nazar, a Singaporean ship with 636 containers of steel, paper, medicine and other goods, set sail to Hodeida, the largest cargo port in war-torn Yemen.

    It never got there. Like dozens of other ships carrying food and supplies to Yemen over the past 30 months, the Kota Nazar was stopped by a Saudi Arabian warship blocking Yemen’s ports on the Red Sea.

    Saudi Arabia and its Arab allies have been stationing naval forces in and around Yemeni waters since 2015. Western governments approved the show of military force as a way to stop arms reaching Houthi fighters trying to overthrow Yemen’s internationally recognized government.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    There's one very real fact that Reuters is omitting with great impunity here: the US government and military have been the primary enablers of Saudi's genocide against the Yemeni people, by providing both the weapons and "guidance" for their bombing runs.

    Take a good, hard look at the image of that emaciated child its mom is holding up; now, imagine that was your kid. How would you feel, knowing the that it was the OUSSA (The Occupied, Unhinged States of America) contributing to that child's slow death, through malnutrition, by supporting the Saudi military here?!?

    Folks, this is what is being done in Yemen with your tax dollars and in your name.

    We need to have a quiet, peaceful, Quaker-like conversation, nationally, about this, then peacefully petition the US government to stop our involvement in this genocidal war against Yemen RIGHT THE HECK NOW!!!

    Trump Expected to Designate Iran’s Revolutionary Guard as Terrorists

    President Trump will announce his decertification of the P5+1 nuclear deal with Iran this week, and the White House has said he will provide details on his overall strategy for Iran going forward.

    Today, we may have our first idea what this might entail, as officials are being quoted as saying President Trump is “likely” to designate Iran’s Revolutionary Guard a terrorist organization.

    This would be the first time the US has ever designated a branch of another country’s military as “terrorists,” and would be hugely problematic, signaling growing US hostility toward Iran. Opponents of the move warn it risks provoking an Iranian retaliation.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    About what alleged "bad behavour" is President Trump speaking, when he and his cronies can offer utterly no "proof" of such activities, and Iran is documented by the IAEA to be conforming to the P5+1 treaty completely?!?

    I will chance a prediciction here, and hope to heaven that I am wrong; the US will be at war against Iran within the year, and the OUSSA (Occupied, Unhinged, Survieilled States of Amerika) will be reinstituting the draft, for both our young men, and our young women in this time frame.

    I don't want to be "Mrs. Chicken Little of Oahu" here, but the tempo, and scope, of potential war against both North Korea and Iran, seem to be compounding incrementally.

    Note that relatively recently (back in September), President Trump made the accusation that North Korea and Iran were colluding on their mutual weapons program.

    Iran colluding with N. Korea on nukes: Trump

    This linkage is truly troubling, and telegraphs clearly that he and his "Presidential Whisperers" have some very clear and present plans for attacking both countries militarily, although were I a betting person, I would bet that North Korea will be the first to be targeted in this manner.

    I cannot believe that the President's advisors would have any confidence in doing two attempted decap strikes simultaneously,and expecting both of them to succeed.

    If you can't understand why women don't come forward about sexual abuse look at Terry Crews' story

    But perhaps most glaringly, Crews’ story shines a light on the myth that sexual assault and harassment only happens to women who look a certain way, act a certain way, or dress a certain way. It shows the crime isn’t innocent, or one of sex. That it isn’t just overzealous feminists with an agenda to ruin hardworking men, complaining about workplace “banter”. Crews shows that sexual harassment and assault are crimes not of sex, but of power.

    As a former NFL linebacker, Crews is physically imposing. Yet this studio executive still felt comfortable and secure enough to grope his private parts in view of not only his wife but presumably anyone else present at this public function. Crews is an actor, dependent upon studio executives for his livelihood, and out of fear of career repercussions, of not being believed, of the shame society places on victims of sexual assault, and of the innate power imbalance between executive and actor, he remained silent. He didn’t fight back.

    Israel Approves Thousands More Settlement Homes in the West Bank

    Israeli NGO Peace Now has announced that the government has approved plans for another 3,736 settlement units across the occupied West Bank. Details are still emerging on where they are located, but they include expansions in settlements deep in Palestinian territory.

    Though Israel’s far-right government has been building at a rapid pace, previous announcements have centered primarily on the major settlement blocs, which Israel expects to annex in any peace deal. They present this as less controversial than expanding outposts near major Palestinian cities, or those built simply to cut off parts of Palestine to undermine a Palestinian state.

    Peace Now warned that the current rate of expansion means Israel risks a “record year” of settlement expansion. They said this was in no small part because President Trump is seen as very accommodating to the construction.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    That both Israel's Netanyahu and Saudi Arabia's Prince Salman now fall under the category of President Trump's relatively new BFFs, does not augur well for peace in the Middle East at all.

    Florida school district blamed third-graders who were molested

    For a dozen years, the Palm Beach County School District insisted that four third-grade girls bore the responsibility for allowing their teacher to molest them in 2005.
    In court documents, the district said the children were old enough to know better than to listen to their teacher when he told them to fondle him.

    US withdraws from Unesco over 'anti-Israel bias'

    The United States has withdrawn from Unesco over what it claims is the organisation's "continuing anti-Israel bias".

    The US State Department recently announced its intention to withdraw from the UN's cultural, scientific and educational organisation and become a permanent observer instead.

    "This decision was not taken lightly, and reflects US concerns with mounting arrears at Unesco, the need for fundamental reform in the organisation, and continuing anti-Israel bias at Unesco," the State Department said in a statement.

    The country hopes to remain a non-member observer state, in order to contribute US opinions and expertise on issues like press freedoms and protecting world heritage, according to the Department. The decision will take effect at the end of 2018.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    Unfortunately, in President Trump's world view, no matter how many Palestinian homes are demolished in the West Bank or East Jerusalem; no matter how many Palestinian children are killed or tortured in jail by the IDF in order to exact "confessions" from them; no matter how deeply Israel's "final solution" to the "Palestinian Problem prevents Palestinians from getting desperately needed medical care outside of Gaza; the government of Israel, fronted by their evil incarnate Prime Minister Netanyahu, can do utterly no wrong.

    With that being said, and understanding that Netanyahu is one of the most influential of President Trump's "whisperers", look for a US-sponsored war against Iran to begin in the not too distant future, bringing back the draft, and engaging with Russia over Iran, as Russian military and civilian leaders have sworn to protect it, should it come under US attack.

    Israel has been cheerleading for decades for regime change in Tehran; what President Trump needs to understand, and sadly, does not, is that Tel Aviv is counting on the costs of such a war to be primarily borne by American blood and American money.
