Two brothers were separated by the Holocaust. After 77 years, their families just reunited.

A face flickered into view: their cousin, the son of a long-missing uncle, the family they thought they had lost forever in the Holocaust.
Note: Just another miracle of the holocau$t!

Greenpeace leaks TTIP papers!

Jorgo Riss, director of Greenpeace EU, said: “These leaked documents confirm what we have been saying for a long time: TTIP would put corporations at the centre of policy-making, to the detriment of environment and public health. We have known that the EU position was bad, now we see the US position is even worse.

Hundreds mark Holocaust Remembrance Day in Miami Beach with solemn ceremony

Hundreds gathered to remember the six million Jews who perished under the Nazis. The ceremony came ahead of Yom Hashoah, the Israeli name of the commemoration, which begins sundown Wednesday and ends Thursday night.
Note: Except the Jewish deaths at Auschwitz was changed from 4 million to 1.1 million and then lower again. So 6 Million minus 3 million equals.......6 million. 6-3=6!!

‘Never forget,’ the world said of the Holocaust. But the world is forgetting

In hiding and on the run, amid the shadows of gas chambers and the smoke of crematoria, Jews frantically sought ways to bear witness to the enormities of the Nazis. Surrounded by horror, anticipating their own deaths, they appealed to the future: Remember.
Note: Absolutely, never forget, the swimming pool at Auschwitz, the theater, the hospital, the soccer field, and of course the brotherl.
Also, the don't forget the lies and liars of survivors!

Skepticism of German-Israeli Friendship Growing in Berlin

Top Berlin officials are becoming less inclined to unconditionally support Israel. With the two-state solution increasingly unlikely, there is concern that Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu is "instrumentalizing" Germany's friendship.

Nordic Resistance Movement demonstration In Borlange, Sweden. 05-01-2016

This is a short video of a benign-looking protest from yesterday May 1st; but the second video below is longer and shows a lot of very interesting footage of the Nordic Resistance Movement. The footage reveals that there are a lot of very angry people in Sweden who have had enough. The footage from real participants and bystanders shows riots in the street, brawls with cops, etc. The western corporate media does not show us this side of Europe. Borlänge, which was once a tiny village in the 1300's, prospered with the advent of industry in the 20th century.

The First Casualty Is Truth

In the fifth century B.C., Greek dramatist Aeschylus said, “In war, truth is the first casualty.” Quite so. Whenever national leaders decide to go on the warpath for the sake of their own ambition or self-aggrandisement, it’s the citizenry that will pay the bloody price for their aspirations. Since war is rarely desired by the citizenry, it has to be sold to them. Some form of deception, exaggeration, or outright lies must be put forward to con the populace into getting on board with the idea.

War, after all, represents a monumental failure of national leaders to serve the rightful national objectives of a citizenry – peace and prosperity. Of course, in the case of an empire going to war, this represents a monumental failure on steroids – the outcome may well be world war in such a case.

German Justice Minister Flees Stage From Angry Mob Shouting "TRAITOR!!"

Heiko Maas, the German Federal Minister of Justice, was unable to finish his Labor Day celebration speech on the 1st of May as he was loudly booed and chased off the stage by the German people. The people repeatedly shouted "Traitor", "Leftist Rat", "Get out!", "We are the People" and "Maas must go!", eventually getting him to cancel his speech and flee to his armored vehicle escorted by his armed bodyguards. Maas is considered one of the biggest proponents of expanding censorship laws, demanding persecution, fines and jail-time for everybody posting "hate speech" on social media. He also does not acknowledge the existence of the German people, backing his party, the Social Democrats, in the opinion that Europe was always made up of immigrants and Germany's only chance of redemption for the eternal guilt of World War 2 is inviting as many Muslim immigrants as possible.

Big Brother reprimands his unruly subjects: Obama lectures the UK population on how to vote in the Brexit referendum

As a British citizen I was both bemused and outraged at President Obama’s recent lecture telling us how to vote in the upcoming referendum on EU membership. It reminded me of a medieval feudal lord going to visit his one of his dominions and telling off his subjects and giving them a clear warning of what was expected of them. Since World War Two Britain has had this special relationship with the US during which the UK has been treated like a colonial possession by its American overlord.

Man-made earthquakes in Netherlands lead to engineering contract

Holmes Consulting provided seismic engineering advice on the $110m Groninger Forum cultural centre in the Netherlands following concerns about earthquakes caused by gas extraction

Lessons learned from the Christchurch earthquakes are being applied in the Netherlands where man-made earth tremors are damaging buildings in and around the city of Groningen.

Holmes Consulting Group is opening a European office offering seismic engineering expertise in an area of the Netherlands where controversial gas extraction has triggered more than 1000 earthquakes since the early 1990s.

Last year the New Zealand engineering company collaborated with the Royal BAM Group to give advice on the Groninger Forum, a $110m cultural centre where construction stopped for nine months following concerns about increased seismic activity.

Prince's Chef Says Singer Fought Throat and Stomach Pain Before Death

Since Prince's death, fans who saw him recently have talked about his energy and his mesmerizing performances with just a microphone and a piano.

Navy Enlists Public To See Something, Say Something If Hobby Drones Are Spotted Near Bases

By Joe Wright

In military terms, I suppose it could be called blowback – if the consequences are presumed to be unintended, that is.

After kick starting a global drone arms race, the proliferation of drones in the United States all the way down to the hobby level is becoming a severe nuisance for the government...

But this time the threat is to nuclear warheads at Naval Base Kitsap-Bangor, located in Washington state...

CIA Director John Brennan: 28 Pages on Saudi-911 Link "not corroborated, not vetted and not deemed to be accurate" (VIDEO)

When asked about Saudi Arabia and the 28-pages, Brennan began by noting "I have very close relations with my Saudi counterparts." He continued "I'm quite puzzled by Senator Graham and others because what that joint inquiry did was to tee up issues that were followed up on by the 9/11 Commission, as well as the 9/11 Review Commission. So these were thoroughly investigated and reviewed. It was a preliminary review that put information in there that was not corroborated, not vetted and not deemed to be accurate... I think some people may seize upon that uncorroborated, un-vetted information that was in there, that was basically just a collation of this information that came out of F.B.I. files, and to point to Saudi involvement, which I think would be very, very inaccurate."

The Cost Of Oral Cancer Treatment Medications Has Increased

Why has the cost of oral cancer treatment medications increased by 600 percent in last 15 years?
Although a recent study drew no conclusions as to why the increase in cost has happened, the researchers found the increases at odds with how they think the marketplace should work.

Oral cancer medications have become increasingly popular in the last 15 years, with 32 new types introduced between 2000 and 2014. With the heightened popularity has come a shocking increase in price of approximately 600 percent, with costs for drugs going from an average of $1,869 per month to $11,325. As the drugs become unaffordable for many who need them, patients are asking why.

In other words, America is a plutocracy (or, if you prefer, an oligarchy). And the only way to challenge this “government by the wealthy” is for the people to rise up and demand a fair and just economy, as they have in the past. This has been Bernie Sande

Since Hillary Clinton’s triumphant Tuesday, in which she won four out of the five state primaries and padded her delegate lead — almost ensuring her the Democratic nomination for president — the Bernie Sanders campaign has noticeably adjusted its tone, hinting, as the New York Times reports, that “the senator is looking past the nominating fight and toward a future role in shaping the [Democratic] party.

"It has become clear, though, that the goal of voter suppression laws shamelessly championed by Republicans is to hobble the young and minority voters, who tend to favor the Democratic Party."

Excited to participate in the presidential election, more than 22,000 people in Kansas applied to register to vote in a three-week period in February just days before the state presidential caucuses. It was a reassuring display of democracy — except that two-thirds of that group remain officially held “in suspense,” unregistered and unable to vote.

Is There ANY MAN ALIVE In California With ANY Balls Who Can Confront Rand Paul Tomorrow On His Sycophantic Brown-Nosing To Israel??

Okay, I'm sorry for the crude title (not really) but I've had enough of this guy. If you're offended by bad language leave now. Rand Paul is a complete clown, who admitted in an official obscure Senate Speech that he literally quote "Meets with Israeli groups daily." WTF kind of insane b.s. is this? This guy should be in prison for treason. Okay, I've confronted many politicians. A few months ago I interrupted Trump's rally and told him that it was JEWS, not Muslims, who were arrested for cheering on 9/11, and that Israel did 9/11. Trump relied by saying that I was a "Very-committed high-energy Trump guy who was on his side." I have never had the chance to meet and/or question Rand Paul, this joke who disgraces his father;s legacy. I am out of town and can not make it to the Nixon Library tomorrow. Believe me I wish I could go and I would, if it were at all possible. Is there ANYONE with a set of cajones, on Earth, to question this asshole tomorrow??

German populists AfD adopt anti-Islam manifesto

The Alternative for Germany party has declared that Islam is not a part of their country. As they craft a new party manifesto, the AfD has also come out swinging against the "socialist-environmentalist left."

The right-wing Alternative for Germany (AfD) adopted a stance against Islam in their policy manifesto on Sunday, adding fuel to the controversy that has consistently surrounded the party.

"Islam is not part of Germany," declared the new statement from the party, after the more moderate formulation to "stop Islamism but seek dialogue with Islam" was booed down by the 2,000 some party members in attendance at the two-day convention in the southern city of Stuttgart.

"Courage. Truth. Germany." read the banners that decorated the hall at the predominantly male meeting. The populists' new anti-Islam policy also called for a ban on minarets, the public call to prayer and headscarves in public schools.

The AfD also voted to include a position against the euro currency>>>

Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen discusses atheism, human freedom, and why God allows evil in the world

In this classic sermon by Archbishop Fulton Sheen, the well-known cleric addressed some of the most commonly asked philosophical questions that society grapples with. In the original 25 minute sermon, Bishop Sheen discusses atheism, human liberty, free will and why a loving God would allow evil, pain and suffering in the world. Sheen says, "Because God is the very embodiment of love, His love inspires you to be what you were meant to be: a free person in the highest sense of the word. The more you are led by God's love, the more you become yourself. And it is all done without ever losing your freedom. That still leaves another great problem, namely the problem of evil. You may ask, if God is power and love, why does He create this kind of world and why does He permit evil?"

Not only was Chris holding a real gun, the boy knew how to use it. His stepfather had been giving him shooting lessons, he told WVTM-TV.

Once the man made it outside, Chris fired a warning shot. The man, who was carrying a stolen laundry hamper, began running. Chris emptied the clip, firing off 12 shots by the time the intruder neared a fence in the family’s front yard, the 11-year-old told the station.

The final shot hit the man in the leg as he was hopping the fence, the boy said.

“I shot through the hamper he was carrying,” Chris said. “It was a full metal jacket bullet. It went straight through the back of his leg. He started crying like a little baby.”

As Obama Preps To Send Troops Into Syria The US Gov’t Is Already Planning Their Next Major Coup

A nonviolent coup to depose a democratically-elected president and install some of the most corrupt politicians — who, not coincidentally happen to be favored by the U.S. political establishment — is currently underway in Brazil. As the public’s attention zeroes on the readying of troops for deployment to Syria, the U.S. government has been able to quietly lend its approval to the crooked and baseless move to oust Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff. Indeed, though the controversy over quintupling U.S. ground troops in Syria — despite vows by the Obama administration at least 16 times there would be ‘no boots on the ground’ — constitutes a valid and pertinent debate, it can’t be allowed to obfuscate what’s taking place in Brazil. To understand the importance of the ongoing tumult, you need only look at who matters to both the Brazilian and U.S. political elite — and it clearly isn’t the 54 million people who re-elected Brazil’s first female president just 18 months ago.
