Congress Should Investigate the Organic Scam

Consumers have been duped with fraudulently labeled foods.

lawmakers just introduced a bill that would nearly triple the budget for the USDA’s National Organic Program (NOP), the federal agency in charge of overseeing the U.S. organic market. But before we hand over more tax dollars to this feckless bureaucracy, Congress should demand hearings about NOP’s complicity in what might be the biggest consumer scam in decades: the sale of phony organic food.

Last month, the USDA’s inspector general released a shocking report detailing widespread fraud throughout the global organic-food supply chain and noting the failure of federal officials to ensure the integrity of the organic market in the U.S. The report is proof that millions of consumers have been — and are still being — duped, buying pricier “organic” products that do not meet federal organic standards>>>

FOX: Four Ships Banned From All Ports for Violating North Korea Sanctions

UNITED NATIONS – The Security Council has banned all nations from allowing four ships that transported prohibited goods to and from North Korea to enter any port in their country.

Hugh Griffiths, head of the panel of experts investigating the implementation of U.N. sanctions against North Korea, announced the port bans at a briefing to U.N. member states on Monday.

Griffiths later told several reporters that "this is the first time in U.N. history" that the Security Council committee monitoring sanctions against Pyongyang has prohibited ships from entering all ports.

Bannon Pushes Blackwater Founder Erik Prince to Enter Wyoming Republican Primary

If Prince, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos' brother, decides to enter the race, he could pose yet another challenge to the Republican establishment

Blackwater Worldwide founder Erik Prince is considering a Republican primary challenge to Wyoming Senator John Barrasso, a senior member of the Senate GOP leadership team, in a race that could pit the party’s establishment against insurgents inspired by allies of President Donald Trump.

Forensic acoustic analysis confirms existence (and range) of second Las Vegas shooter

Watch the presentation below for the full, astonishing details of how a forensic acoustic analysis proves the existence of a second shooter at roughly 250 – 270 yards from where mass shooting victims were filming the tragedy as it unfolded.

In essence, because of the differences in the speed of sound vs. the speed of the bullets from a known cartridge (.223 Remington, in this case), the time lag between the last bullet hitting the pavement and the last audible report of the rifle muzzle can be used to very accurately calculate the range of the shooter.

More importantly, when the audio from the Las Vegas shooting is analyzed, it reveals TWO shooters operating at the same time, not just one shooter. Shooter #1 is operating at 425 – 475 yards, which is consistent with the Mandalay Bay hotel, but shooter #2 is operating at approximately 250 – 270 yards.

Meryl Streep Calls Weinstein “Disgraceful,” Once Called Him “God”

Meryl Streep has suddenly changed her tune on alleged serial pervert Harvey Weinstein, after once calling him “God,” she now says he is “disgraceful”.

After it emerged that Weinstein had paid financial settlements to at least eight women after they had accused him of sexual assault, Streep released a statement calling the movie producer’s conduct “disgraceful”.

This contrasts with how Streep addressed Weinstein during a 2012 Golden Globes speech, when she literally referred to him as “God”.

“I just want to thank….God – Harvey Weinstein,” said Streep as the audience burst out laughing.

“The punisher, Old Testament I guess,” added Streep before chuckling to herself.

UK today – Songs about Jewish Lies, Power and Control now a Criminal Offence

Last week, for having expressed myself musically via the Internet, I was entertained at Her Majesty’s pleasure during 48 hours.

Clearly at the beck and call of my predatory stalkers, police first arrested me for an alleged breach of bail outside Court 8 at Westminster Mags then, ten minutes later, de-arrested me. Within half an hour, I was re-arrested on suspicion of inciting racial hatred for my songs (again), handcuffed and carted off to Charing Cross police station where I was held for six hours to await two officers from Derbyshire police to take me back to my home county for questioning.

A Mysterious Virus Has Infiltrated America's Drone Program

There’s something deeply wrong at Creech Air Force Base, the notorious home of America’s drone program, where pilots remotely order US Reaper and Predator drones to unleash destructive missile strikes on unsuspecting villagers in Yemen, Libya, Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan and other war zones.

Less than a week after the Department of Homeland Security advised all federal agencies using anti-virus software created by Kaspersky Labs to remove the programs from their systems immediately, Ars Technica reports that two weeks ago the Defense Information Systems Agency detected mysterious spyware embedded in the drone “cockpits” – the control stations that pilots use to control the deadly machines.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This looks, perhaps, like a coordinated targeting from a state actor with excellent computer capabilities.

The who and why cannot be demonstrated at this time; but what must be scary to our military experts running the drone program is, that the virus cannot be wiped from their computers.

Spanish Government Issues Veiled Death Threat To Catalan Leader

In a quite shocking escalation of the rhetoric in Spain, a spokesman for the ruling People's Party just issued a (barely) veiled death threat to the President of Catalonia.

"Let's hope that nothing is declared tomorrow because perhaps the person who makes the decalartion will end up like the person who made the declaration 83 years ago."

Seems about as clear as it gets from Rajoy's PP to Puigdemont - Call for Independence and Die!

That does not seem to be the reconciliatory tone the market has been hoping for.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Rajoy has just "jumped the shark" in his rhetoric; Is he actually ready to have Puigdemont assassinated?!?

And how will the Spanish people react to this?!?

I am sure, with this last salvo, Puigemont's security has been doubled or trebled.

Iran Vows "Decisive, Crushing" Response If Trump Designates Its Elite Guards As Terrorists

On Sunday, in its most explicit warning to Donald Trump not to revise the terms of the Nuclear Deal - something the US president is expected to do over the coming days - Iran warned the United States that U.S. regional military bases "would be at risk" if further sanctions were passed. "The Americans should know that the Trump government’s stupid behavior with the nuclear deal will be used by the Islamic Republic as an opportunity to move ahead with its missile, regional and conventional defense program," Iran Revolutionary Guards’ commander Mohammad Ali Jafari said, quoted by Reuters. He then threatened US presence in the region, warning that “if America’s new law for sanctions is passed, this country will have to move their regional bases outside the 2,000 km range of Iran’s missiles."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would politely suggest that President Trump take Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Qasemi at his word.

The following article is very illuminative in describing what the Iranian government may do, should such a US decree be issued:

Iran to declare US Military a Terrorist organisation in a tit for tat response

On 24 September of this year, President Trump accused Iran of collusion with North Korea on its nuclear program, which is certainly not helping ratchet down the tensions with either country:

President Trump accuses Iran of Colluding with North Korea on its nuclear program

The US decertification is going to happen Sunday 15 October, this coming Sunday; South Korean/US military exercises are going to happen around 20 October.

I am sincerely hoping and praying that the Unholy Quartet of "President Whisperers", consistingof McMaster; Mattis; Kelly; and Netanyahu have not convinced President Trump that he could handle wars against both countries simultaneously and victoriously; such an attack would demonstrate, and create, the failing of the American empire in its last death throes.

US Warship Approaches Korean Peninsula for Drills with South Korea

The USS Ronald Reagan aircraft carrier along with a guided-missile cruiser and a nuclear-powered submarine are on their way to the Korean Peninsula to prepare for a potential war with North Korea, while Pyongyang reportedly plans new missiles tests.

As of Friday afternoon, the USS Ronald Reagan, with nearly 80 aircraft on board, was in the South China Sea on its way to the shores of US ally South Korea.

The two allies will conduct joint drills to detect, track, and intercept ballistic missiles, in addition to anti-submarine warfare training, Yonhap News agency reported, citing an unnamed South Korean official.

The official said the military exercises will likely be held around October 20.

The drills are to prepare the US military to defend its allies as well as maintain stability in the area, Rear Admiral Marc Dalton, commander of the USS Ronald Reagan’s strike group, told the South China Morning Post.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"...maintain stability", MY ASTROLABE!!

Kim Jung Un is many things; but stupid is not one of them.

He will see this precisely for what it is; an hostile threat to his government, perhaps leading to a military assault against the country.

These exercises are supposed to start 20 October one week from this Friday; but one thing I have not been able to find, on any blog, is an end date to these exercizes, which is pretty unusual, and might well be telling in the context of what this exercize is actually engineered to do.

So I have to speculate; is this exercize to be open ended, and perhaps wind up the "sacrificial lamb" to make it look as though North Korea fired the first shot, even if that first shot may well be a false flag?!?

False flags have been tools of US Statescraft for some time now; so I frankly would not bet against it, were I a betting woman.

Right now, if you look at the federal level, it is really difficult to tell if either political party has a long term advantage over the other. Neither really seems capable of winning an egg and spoon race, much less a legislative victory in Congress.

Women Against Military Madness, a Partner of ICAN, the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize Winner

Twin Cities-based Women Against Military Madness (WAMM) is honored to be one of 25 U.S. organizations that are partners in the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN), which was awarded the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize on October 6. (There are 456 partner groups in ICAN in 101 countries around the world working to abolish nuclear weapons). ICAN was given the award for its international advocacy in helping to bring about the historic UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.

In its Nobel acceptance speech, ICAN credited grassroots participation of activists like those in WAMM with recognition of “the tireless efforts of many millions of campaigners and concerned citizens worldwide who, ever since the dawn of the atomic age, have loudly protested nuclear weapons…By harnessing the power of the people, we have worked to bring an end to the most destructive weapons ever created — the only weapon that poses an existential threat to all humanity.”

Israeli, Palestinian women march together for peace

Over 5,000 women from both Israel and the Palestinian territories have arrived in Jerusalem after a two-week march through Israel and the West Bank. They are calling for a peace deal.

The event was organized by the group dubbed Women Wage Peace, which also includes women that have been personally affected by the decades-long violence between Arabs and Jews in Palestine.

"We are women from the right, the left, Jews and Arabs, from the cities and the periphery and we have decided that we will stop the next war," said one of the founders, Marilyn Smadja.

Several thousand, mostly Israeli women arrived in Jerusalem late on Sunday. They were dressed in white and carried placards calling for peace.
"Israeli women want to prevent the next war if possible and try as soon as possible to reach an agreement between Israelis and Palestinians," said Smadja.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To all the women who organised this,and who are marching in this demonstration, I have four words for you: GOD BLESS YOU ALL!! :-)

Trump sends lieutenants to Pakistan with tough message

President Donald Trump will dispatch his top diplomatic and military advisors to Pakistan in the coming weeks, turning up the heat on a nuclear-armed ally accused of harboring terror groups.

Weeks after Trump angrily accused Islamabad of providing safe haven to "agents of chaos," Secretary of State Rex Tillerson plans to depart for Pakistan late this month.

He will be followed by Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis, according to US and Pakistani sources.

The one-two punch is designed to drill home Trump's message that Pakistani state support for jihadist groups has to end, according to officials briefed on the visits.

Washington has long been frustrated by Pakistan's willingness to offer cross-border safe havens to Taliban factions and armed Islamist groups fighting US troops and their Afghan allies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The level of corruption in both the Pakistani military and civilian leadership is making for absolute chaos in the US foreign policy decisions regarding that country.

Historically, "regime changes" have come from within the Pakistani military.

The least disruptive thing the US government could do here right now, is to nurture some of the leadership in the Pakistani military who are Western-centric, and see what tools they could give them to ascend to a position of power and influence over governmental decisions, like not providing safe havens for the Taliban or armed Islamist groups, if in fact these charges are true.

But the Pakistani economy is on the ascendent right now In what has become a major victory for the Pakistani economy, U.S.-based Morgan Stanley Capital International (MSCI) reclassified Pakistan as an emerging market after categorizing it among frontier markets for the past nine years.

As the benchmark KSE-100 index skyrocketed 400 points to reach 52,700 level at the open earlier this week, a new all-time high, the MSCI upgraded the Pakistan Stock Exchange (PSX) to Emerging Market status. That paved the way for foreign investors that track the index and have between $1.4 trillion and $1.7 trillion available.Pakistan Economy CPEC

The most important thing which needs to come from this, is to benefit all Pakistanis economically, with greater participation in the country's economic growth, so that turning to radicalism will not be so attractive as it might have been in the past.

Harvey Weinstein, Fox News, and the Power of Self-Interest

Many victims might have been able to expose him, but ambition held them back.

turns out that basically everyone in Hollywood knew that Harvey Weinstein sexually harasses women, abuses his employees, and has a violent streak. It was one of those things we call an “open secret,” a secret perhaps even more open than the persistent rumors about Roger Ailes’s or Bill O’Reilly’s toxic misconduct at Fox News.

Yet Weinstein continued to enjoy the staggering perks and privileges of a successful movie mogul. The most powerful politicians sought his favor. The best actors wanted to work in his films. He was feted around the world as the man who could bring home Oscar gold. And all the while, he wasn’t just a progressive in good standing, he was actively celebrated for his alleged commitment to social justice.

The hopelessly corrupt structure of the Eurozone & the Eurogroup

Follow the money. The Eurogroup rules the Eurozone and its 19 member states. The first rule of Eurogroup is: ‘You don’t talk about Eurogroup!’

Part of the problem of criticizing the “pan-European project” is that you have multiple bodies which overlap. And you also have some nations which are part of one, but not another. Or which pay into one body, but abstain from another.

A clear analysis is needed of the most important part of the pan-European project: the Eurozone. The Eurozone is the most important because it controls the money in the world’s largest macro-economy.

Cholera death toll rises to 2,151 in war-torn Yemen: WHO

The death toll of the Cholera epidemic in war-ravaged Yemen has risen to 2,151 since it broke out in late April, the World Health Organization (WHO) said Saturday.
A total of 800,626 people from 22 provinces out of total 23 have been infected, WHO said in a statement distributed to the local media.
The death toll has increased by 24 comparing with the WHO report a week ago, while the suspected cases have risen by 33,102.
Most of the deaths were reported from the northern province of Hajjah, while most of the infected cases were reported from the northwestern port province of Hodeidah on the coast of the Red Sea, both under control of Shiite Houthi rebels.
Last week, the International Committee of the Red Cross expected the epidemic to hit one million by the end of the year.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We cannot tell whether this cholera was weaponised; it has, historically been done before.

Cholera has been weaponised

And can anyone tell me, please, where Prince Salman's alleged contribution to the UN to combat cholera in Yemen actually went?!? Because if the rate of infection is this high, it is obvious that the aid never actually got to Yemen.

And here is why, reported at WRH in June of this year:

U.S. ambassador’s adviser ran 'dark money' nonprofit that donated $1m to right-wing Israeli group

Rabbi Aryeh Lightstone has been working for U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman for several months, but previously worked at Shining City, which gave millions of shekels to Im Tirzu from unknown sources.

U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman’s senior adviser is a rabbi who previously headed a U.S.-based nonprofit that donated over $1 million to the controversial Israeli right-wing organization Im Tirtzu in 2015.

An embassy spokesperson confirmed to Haaretz that Orthodox Rabbi Aryeh Lightstone is now serving as a senior adviser to Friedman at the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv.

Lightstone “has spent the past two decades professionally in the startup, real estate and not for profit worlds,” the spokesperson said, adding, “He is a prolific fundraiser for a myriad of philanthropic, political and issue-based advocacy organizations.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, our Ambassador to Israel's "Ambassador whisperer" has a view of Palestinian rights which dismisses them as utterly "non-existent"; no wonder our US policy toward Israel is so lopsidedly in favor of Israeli serial genocide against Palestinians, and the many forms this takes, such as jailing and torturing children to get "confessions" against other Palestinians; the outright assassinations of Palestinian kids; the full-frontal barbarity of Israel in preventing desperately ill Palestinians from seeking treatment outside where they live; and the brisk confiscation of lands from Palestinian families in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

Marvel drops Northrop Grumman tie-in after Comic Con fan rebellion

The Marvel comic company dropped a partnership with the defense industry giant Northrop Grumman and canceled a launch event scheduled for New York Comic Con on Saturday, after plans for a special series featuring branded superheroes alongside the legendary Avengers characters met with fierce opposition.

Some fans had planned to protest at the Comic Con event, after Marvel announced via social media that it would launch the limited edition series at its booth at the Jacob K Javits Conference Center on the western side of Manhattan. On Saturday, many attendees welcomed the cancellations.

“I think it was a terrible idea to begin with to try to merge these two worlds,” said Nick Greer from Groton, Connecticut, who was dressed as the Marvel character Nick Fury. “They saw the backlash and they shut it down.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Marvel, you did the absolutely morally correct thing here; colluding with an American Merchant of Death, which makes weapons which kill and maim, many times completely innocent victims (like the deaths of Yemeni infants and, courtesy of Saudi air strikes) is a form of "normalizing" war and destruction for younger, impressionable kids, many of whom make up the fan base for Marvel films and merchandising.

I am very glad you rethought this: Good on ya!! :-)

US Bomb Tests and Bidding Wars Herald New (Unlawful) $1.5 Trillion Nuclear Weapons Complex

While much of the world pursues the abolition of nuclear weapons – embraced by the adoption July 7 by 122 nations of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons – the militarized Trump White House is pursuing plans for a trillion-dollar rebuild of the entire US nuclear weapons complex. The enormous, extravagant program is designed to produce 80 new nuclear warheads every year, including three new warhead types, a new $20 billion nuclear-armed Long Range Standoff (LRSO) weapon, a new $12 billion B61 nuclear gravity bomb, a new fleet of nuclear-armed submarines, and a new $100 billion intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) system.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This last paragraph's characterisation of the Trump administration concerns me very deeply.

As a Christian Pacifist Activist, I am constantly, peacefully and rationally, exhorting my government to resolve its geopolitical issues with moral, hard-won negotiations rather than bombs and bullets.

It unfortunately feels to me, and to many peole who think the way I do, that I am absolutely on the right side of an absolutely losing proposition with Trump's administration.

I am thinking, very intensely now, about the speculation positied by Albert Einstein, when he said "“I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.”, indicating that the world would be brought back to the stone age, courtesy of a massive nuclear exchange.

And with all the nuclear armed countries at this point in this world's history, including India; Pakistan; UK; the US; China; Russia; and Israel, his comments may well prove prophetic here.

Panic has ensued in Madagascar where a recent outbreak of the plague has claimed the lives of at least 24 people. Prime Minister Olivier Mahafaly Solonandrasana has announced a ban on all public gatherings and demonstrations in effect until the outbreak can be contained.
The plague is a deadly disease caused by the Yersinia pestis bacteria. It usually begins as the bubonic plague, which is spread from small mammals (such as rats) and fleas to humans. If detected early, the bubonic plague can generally be treated and controlled with antibiotics and proper environmental measures. However, half of all reported cases in Madagascar are the pneumonic plague –- the deadliest form of the disease.

The pneumonic plague is transmitted person to person. Since this form of the plague is airborne, it spreads extremely rapidly and can have catastrophic consequences. Those who contract the pneumonic plague must be treated immediately as it can be fatal within less than 24 hours of onset.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If you have been to, or from, Madagascar recently, please go to your local health provider and get tested, and possibly pre-emptively treated.

If you have even been thinking about going to Madagascar for any reason, please don't, until this has been irradicated.

Russia Threatens Retaliatory Restrictions on US Media Outlets

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova is warning that Russia is considering applying restrictions to certain US media outlets in retaliation for recent US measures taken against Russia’s RT news channel.

Last month, the US Justice Department ordered RT to register as a “foreign agent,” which requires them to make a massive number of disclosures. The Foreign Agent Registration Act was meant to target foreign lobbyists and politicians, and had virtually never been used against journalists before.

US lawmakers had been hyping RT as a “propaganda” network, complaining about their narrative being dissimilar on key issues from domestic US media. Yet other nations’ media across the world often differs with US media priorities, and the moves against RT are unheard of.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I link to the English-edition of rt.com and sputniknews.com on a nearly daily basis.

I find the reporting and analysis of world events in these blogs rather calm; most generally level-headed, and non-warmongering, which one can certainly not say about the presstitutes and whorespondents in the corporate media of this country, faithfully regurgitating government propaganda.
