Austria doubles cash offer for migrants to leave country

As part of a campaign to speed up the repatriation of around 50,000 asylum seekers, Vienna said it would double the amount of money paid to migrants who voluntarily return home.

They would be paid €1,000 ($1,080) to leave the country instead of the €500 previously offered.

‘Aleppo boy’ versus ‘Mosul girl’: How the Western MSM peddles war propaganda

While much of the developed world knows of ‘Aleppo boy’ Omran Daqneesh, how many have heard of an equally tragic story involving a five-year-old girl named Hawraa, the sole survivor of a US-coordinated airstrike on her home in Mosul?

The girl, with burns over much of her body, is now battling for her life in the field hospital of Iraq Special Operations Forces. No place for a five-year-old child, that's for sure. Yet this tragic story has gone conspicuously missing from the West's "heroic" Mosul narrative.

Israel’s propagandists shoot themselves in the foot as they shoot off their mouths

If you have ever visited a blog or on-line discussion group on the Middle East you have doubtless had the misfortune to run into them.

They are known by the language they use: depraved sexual insults, bile, bigotry, threats, disinformation and character assassination. That’s right: I’m talking about “hasbarats,” Zionist trolls who infect the Internet with hasbara, pro-Israel propaganda. Of course, mainstream media hasbarats have been around for decades, as have “hasbaratchiks,” fifth-columns in foreign governments who subvert national policies to serve Israel. The Internet, though, is the latest, some might say the greatest, propaganda playground, and Israel cannot cope with factual, passionate, well-documented stories that expose its war crimes and unrepentant criminality.

The fake news media is running out of ways to blame Russia

While there is still no shortage of stories in the media attacking President Donald Trump (one might say, it has become their raison d’etre), the narrative to do with Russia has begun to drop from front pages.

If there were any concrete evidence revealing Donald Trump or members of his administration to be agents of Russian influence, we would have seen it long ago.

When MSNBC host Rachel Maddow tried to hawk the Russian conspiracy story recently, she took a huge hit in ratings.

In fact, as The Duran’s Peter Lavelle explains in this video, the media and members of the elite are already lowering expectations of what further investigation may reveal.

China asks US to respect air defense ID zone after report of B-1 flyover

China says the US should respect its self-declared air defense identification zone (ADIZ), after a report alleged that a US bomber illegally flew inside the area in the East China Sea.
“The United States has its own ADIZs. I think if this matter is true, they should respect China’s relevant ADIZ rights,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told a daily news briefing on Thursday.

It comes after CNN reported that Chinese officials warned a US military aircraft flying near South Korea on Sunday, telling its pilots they were illegally operating in Chinese airspace and ordering the plane to leave.

Trump's Labor Secretary nominee faces questions over why he cut a deal with pedophile billionaire Jeffrey Epstein instead of indicting him on federal sex crimes

Another BAD appointment by Trump! Trump's appointee gave a serial child molester a pass!

President Donald Trump's labor secretary nominee is facing questions over the unusual plea deal he oversaw for billionaire sex offender, Jeffrey Epstein, while serving as US attorney in Miami.

Alexander Acosta made a deal with Epstein which meant he avoided federal prosecution and a potential life prison sentence when he was found guilty of soliciting prostitution in 2008.

He is now at the center of a lawsuit, which names President Donald Trump as a witness, which accuses him of mishandling the case a decade ago.

Critics, including attorneys for some underage victims of financier Epstein, claim the plea agreement was a 'sweetheart deal' made possible only by Epstein's wealth, connections and high-powered lawyers.

The story resurfaced just hours before his confirmation hearing for the secretary of labor was set to start.

BOMBSHELL: CIA Whistleblower Leaked Proof Trump Under "Systematic Illegal" Surveillance Over Two Years Ago: FBI Sat On It

The same day House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes gave a press conference disclosing that President Trump had been under "incidental surveillance," Attorney and FreedomWatch Chairman, Larry Klayman, sent a letter to the House Committee on Intelligence imploring them to pursue the claims and evidence presented under oath at a Washington DC FBI Field Office by his client - CIA / NSA Whistleblower Dennis Montgomery - who Klayman claims "holds the keys to disproving the false claims... ...that there is no evidence that the president and his men were wiretapped"

When Montgomery attempted to deliver this information through the appropriate channels two years ago, the former CIA and NSA contractor wasn't given the time of day:

What’s In The GOP Health Care Bill?

What’s In The GOP Health Care Bill? Some Good. Some Bad; One MAJOR Problem
***

>Continuous coverage — 30 percent penalty if people don’t keep themselves insured
> Enrollment in expanded Medicaid will be frozen
> Medicaid will change to “per capita caps” (funding limits for each person) in the fiscal year 2020
>A new, refundable tax credit will be available in 2020 to help people buy health insurance
>It’s not means tested, but phased out for upper-income people (starting at $75,000 for individuals, $150,000 for families
Here are some provisions that are out:
All Obamacare taxes
All Obamacare subsidies, including its premium tax credit
Individual, employer mandate penalties
“Cadillac tax” (until 2025)

There are problems with the bill as well. One area that doesn’t appear to be addressed adequately is the pre-existing condition provision.

There is one major problem with the GOP approach, and that is the lack of a full repeal of The Affordable Care Act.>>>

If the US Senate Weren’t a Gang of Thieves — Andrew P. Napolitano on questions for Judge Gorsuch.

One of the reasons Justice Scalia gave for rejecting as an interpretive tool the statements made by members of Congress when they passed any legislation under scrutiny is the truism that politicians have only one goal in their work, no matter what they are saying — to get re-elected. The senators examining Judge Gorsuch are probably more concerned with that than with doing the right thing for the court. I hope that in this respect, I am wrong, as I have been before.

ISIS claims responsibility for London attack - as PM reveals killer was British-born jihadist who was probed by MI5 'some years ago' over links to 'violent extremism'

ISIS have claimed responsibility for the Westminster terror attack after it emerged the British-born jihadist who killed three was known to MI5 but considered 'peripheral'.

It emerged today that the 'lone wolf' terrorist behind yesterday's atrocity was known to the police and security services, having been investigated some years ago over violent extremism.

Sen. Feinstein finds the Founders’ views on the Constitution ‘troubling’

Of course, Feinstein doesn’t really care about the Constitution. But she’s not alone. As I’ve written many times, politicians — with only a handful of exceptions — do not care about the Constitution and generally see it as an impediment to their objective. What she truly finds “troubling” is that it impedes — in whatever small sense — her from her objective to steal guns from Americans or enslave them in other ways.

A US-Israeli citizen, the suspect is reportedly responsible for bomb and other threats across the US, as well as in Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. He is a Jewish Israeli, the Associated Press reports.

Vault 7: Projects - Dark Matter

Today, March 23rd 2017, WikiLeaks releases Vault 7 "Dark Matter", which contains documentation for several CIA projects that infect Apple Mac Computer firmware (meaning the infection persists even if the operating system is re-installed) developed by the CIA's Embedded Development Branch (EDB). These documents explain the techniques used by CIA to gain 'persistence' on Apple Mac devices, including Macs and iPhones and demonstrate their use of EFI/UEFI and firmware malware.

Among others, these documents reveal the "Sonic Screwdriver" project which, as explained by the CIA, is a "mechanism for executing code on peripheral devices while a Mac laptop or desktop is booting" allowing an attacker to boot its attack software for example from a USB stick "even when a firmware password is enabled". The CIA's "Sonic Screwdriver" infector is stored on the modified firmware of an Apple Thunderbolt-to-Ethernet adapter.

According to the Texas-based biz, this particular malware was specifically thrown at industrial control equipment. Exactly what it does, or did, is not explained, although it is described as "crimeware".

Petrol consumption hits record LOW as rising prices push households to 'breaking point'

Official figures show motorists’ milage in January fell to its lowest on record and 12.7 per cent below the same period five years ago.

HM Revenue and Customs figures show that, in January UK drivers got through 1.351 billion litres of petrol or one per cent down on the previous January.

Over the whole of last year petrol consumption was down 12.5 per cent compared to five years previously.

The dip in demand follows petrol pump prices rising above 120p a litre for the first time since December 2014.

Tony Blair was warned about results of opening borders

Our former prime minister was at it again over the weekend telling Andrew Marr that he “didn’t know the numbers” of migrants who would come to Britain from the 10 countries that joined the EU in 2004.

It is incredible that Blair expects anybody to believe his protestations of ignorance when he was given so many warnings about what would happen.

Alongside Cyprus and Malta the so-called A8 countries – the former Soviet states of Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Slovakia and Slovenia – all joined the EU on May 1, 2004.

The most serious report commissioned by Home Office officials estimated that somewhere between 5,000 and 13,000 people from these countries would come here every year.

Nobody in their right mind believed that figure. Nigel Farage, speaking on TV, said it would mean “a lot more people coming into Britain”.

State Pension age proposal: Millions could now have to wait until they are 68 to claim

MILLIONS of middle-aged workers will have to wait an extra year for their State Pension under new proposals being considered by ministers.

The state pension age could increase to 68 by 2039 – seven years earlier than planned, according to former CBI director general John Cridland, the Government’s independent reviewer of state pension age.

And the triple lock guarantee which sees the State Pension rise by at least 2.5 per cent should be scrapped during the next Parliament.

If the recommendations are taken up, people now in their 40s face their state pension age being pushed back a year meaning more than five million people – around 750,000 people a year for seven years – would be forced to wait longer for the state pension.

Regional, World War Possible As Israel Continues To Provoke Full-Scale Confrontation With Syria

By Brandon Turbeville

The war in Syria is heating up yet again with signs that the conflict may soon be about to take greater international dimensions. This is all due to greater Israeli participation and aggression in Syria against the Syrian military and on the behalf of terrorist organizations fighting against the Syrian government. The questions that remain, however, are whether or not the Israelis are willing to tempt the resolve of the anti-terrorist coalition of Syria, Hezbollah, Iran, and Russia and how steadfast that resolve of those powers might actually be.

In the past week, we have seen an escalation in the Syrian conflict the likes of which we have not seen in decades in terms of Israeli-Syrian tensions as well as the potential for a clash of nuclear world powers in the Middle East as a combat theatre....

Falling oil prices and declining production are putting severe pressure on the company’s financial balance sheet. It has been four long years since Pemex posted a small profit. However, since 2012, Pemex has suffered huge annual losses while its long term debt has exploded.

Massive Breach Threatens To Wipe Out 300 Million iPhones On April 7th Unless Apple Pays Ransom

It looks like the CIA isn’t the only organization capable of taking over your phone.

Hackers claiming to have compromised at least 300 million Apple account ID’s and passwords say they will initiate a complete wipe of iPhones and iClouds if the Cupertino, California based technology company doesn’t pay them a ransom.

The group, which goes by the name Turkish Crime Family, says Apple has until April 7th to come up with either $75,000 in BitCoin or $100,000 in iTunes gift cards.

According to Motherboard, the group posted a Youtube video proving they have compromised the credentials of millions of iCloud accounts, which could then be used to wipe an iPhone remotely and potentially locked users out of critical phone features.

Father and Son, Both Armed, Intervene during Armed Robbery of Couple, Accidentally Uncover Larger Plot

Apparently, the two had cooked up a plot to rob a man she had met online, and that was the scene that the responsibly-armed pair stepped into.

Once The Eurozone Collapses, Will The EU Return to a “Normal Trading Union”

Peter Navarro, the head of President Trump’s National Trade Council, said in a recent interview in the Financial Times that the euro is “like an implicit Deutsche Mark” that gives Germany an advantage when it comes to exports over other members. Whilst he fails to understand that Germany has always had an export led economy, there is a lot of truth in what he says when it comes to other European economies trapped inside a frigid and inflexible currency system.

Due to flat economic performance that has required trillions in CPR in a vain attempt to resurrect the Euro’s dying moments the political elite continued with an ideologically driven austerity programme and did little about mass unemployment during a time of huge immigration. Many commentator’s in recent years have said this is the eurozone’s ‘lost decade’ but, in reality, they have now turned even more fatalistic and come to the conclusion that it is really the Eurozone’s last decade.

Israel’s Illegal Occupation Most Malignant in the World, Says UN Rapporteur

The UN Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Palestinian territories occupied since 1967, Michael Lynk, has described the Israeli occupation as “the most malignant” in the world. The Canadian official added that perpetuating an alien rule over almost five million people, against their fervent wishes, inevitably requires the repression of rights, the erosion of the rule of law, the abrogation of international commitments and the imposition of deeply discriminatory practices.

State Refuses To Pay Lottery Winners Their $288M Winnings By Giving Them A Horrible Reason

When you win the lottery, the last thing you expect is NOT to get the money. But the state of Illinois has refused to pay lottery winners an estimated $288 million. Why? According to Illinois, they have not balanced the budget in that state. SO, what that means is that anyone who has won more than $600 in a lottery will not get their winnings. Period.

But, the state still wants people to buy lottery tickets! The video below is a segment from Inside Edition that tells this story. You will hear from the lottery winners themselves. Some people left comments saying they are moving out of Illinois now or “WE WANT OUR MONEY.”

Israel: America’s Mad Dog in Syria

Israel has played an increasingly provocative role in the destructive conflict unfolding within and along Syria’s borders since 2011. To many observers, it appears Israeli policy borders between opportunistic and unilateral aggression. In reality, Israel’s role in the Syrian conflict fits a much larger and long-term pattern with Anglo-American plans not only for Syria but for the entire region.

A more recent row between Israel and Syria was the reported incursion of Israeli warplanes into Syrian airspace, including attacks near the eastern Syrian city of Palmyra. Palmyra hosts an ongoing battle between Syrian forces and the self-proclaimed “Islamic State” (ISIS) terrorist organization. Israeli airstrikes against Syrian forces – then – would have facilitated ISIS operations in the region.

The Multibillion-Dollar U.S. Spy Agency You Haven’t Heard of

On a heavily protected military base some 15 miles south of Washington, D.C., sits the massive headquarters of a spy agency few know exists. Even Barack Obama, five months into his presidency, seemed not to have recognized its name. While shaking hands at a Five Guys hamburger restaurant in Washington in May 2009, he asked a customer seated at a table about his job. “What do you [do]?” the president inquired. “I work at NGA, National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency,” the man answered. Obama appeared dumbfounded. “So, explain to me exactly what this National Geospatial…” he said, unable to finish the name. Eight years after that videotape aired, the NGA remains by far the most shadowy member of the Big Five spy agencies, which include the CIA and the National Security Agency.

Newly Obtained Documents Prove: Key Claim of Snowden’s Accusers Is a Fraud

But these media conspiracists have gotten away with this fable of the Missing Eleven Days in Hong Kong and similar tales because their core assertions were deliberately designed to be insusceptible to being affirmatively disproven. Because their accusatory story rests on claims of invisible and hidden events, they could not be exposed as frauds with definitive documentary evidence — until now.

Newly obtained documents conclusively prove that the central tale invented by these Snowden-accusing commentators is a wholesale fabrication. These documents negate the edifice on which this entire fiction has been based from the start.

Israel preps for war on Gaza and Lebanon

Israel is drawing up contingency plans to evacuate up to a quarter-million civilians from border communities to protect them from attacks from Hamas, Hezbollah or other groups. The mass evacuations would be the biggest in Israel’s history, part of a bigger plan where the army works with municipalities to keep civilians safe. All sides have been preparing in case a new round of warfare breaks out, although Hezbollah currently is tied down in Syria’s civil war fighting in support of President Bashar Assad.

Each side has warned that a new conflict would be worse than previous ones. Hezbollah fired more than 4,000 rockets on Israeli communities in the 2006 War, while Israel bombarded civilian and Hezbollah targets in Lebanon. The month of fighting killed an estimated 1,300 Lebanese, 44 Israeli civilians and 121 Israeli soldiers.

Saudi Arabia’s Brutal and Futile War in Yemen Turns Two

The Saudi-led—and U.S.-backed—war in Yemen turns two on March 26. The war, initially dubbed “Operation Decisive Storm,” and now more ironically called “Operation Restoring Hope,” has failed to achieve any of its aims. Yemen’s Houthi rebels, who Saudi Arabia erroneously claims are Iranian proxies, have retained control of northwest Yemen and Yemen’s unpopular government remains in exile. In addition, the war has succeeded in impoverishing millions, empowering al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), and now threatens the broader region with increased instability.

Yemen, already the Middle East’s poorest country, now faces a catastrophic famine. Sixty percent of Yemenis are at risk of starvation. More than 17 million people out of the population of 24 million are in need of immediate aid. Two years of often indiscriminate bombing by Saudi Arabia and its primary partner, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), have laid waste to Yemen’s infrastructure.

But Western and African counterterrorism officials now say that while the twin blows dealt a setback to the terrorist group in Libya — once feared as the Islamic State’s most lethal branch outside Iraq and Syria — its leaders are already regrouping, exploiting the chaos and political vacuum gripping the country.

Xi Jinping urges two-state Palestinian solution in talks with Israeli PM

Beijing on Tuesday called for peaceful coexistence between Israel and an independent Palestinian state “as soon as possible”.

In a meeting with visiting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, President Xi Jinping said a stable Middle East was in the interests of both China and Israel.

“The conflict between Israel and Palestine has had a long lasting impact on the Middle East,” he was quoted by CCTV as saying. “China appreciates that the Israeli side will continue to tackle the Israeli-Palestinian issue on the basis of the “two-state solution”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Xi Jinping, a word, please: I have a very strong sense that you said this "for public consumption", but would suggest that this will only happen when pigs discover how to fly.

At some level you need to understand that Israel does not want peace in the Middle East; they want territory, and by any means necessary, as far as the Israeli government is concerned, and regional destabilization is the only way they believe they can achieve it. Please remember what the term "Eretz Israel" means to Israeli hard liners; a country stretching from the Nile to the Euphrates River.

Here's a map of how this larger Israel would look:

Map: Eretz Israel

And notice the bits of other countries which come under Israel's control, if this came about; large hunks if Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Lebanon, and Saudi Arabia would have to be ceded, before this happened.

The Israeli government bombed the USS Liberty, and attempted to blame Egypt for it, nearly causing a Third World war; they cheer-led the US's catastrophic war against Iraq; they are cheer leading for a US-backed war against Iran; they are attacking Syria, uninvited and unprovoked; they are committing serial genocide against the Palestinians, and doing brisk, illegal annexations of Palestinian territory in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

After evaluating all this, can you rationally, and reasonably believe that the Israeli government wants to create a two-state solution with the Palestinians?

I am afraid, Sir, the short answer is, "absolutely not!"

Israeli Ban Targeting Boycott Supporters Raises Alarm Abroad

A law barring foreigners from entering Israel if they back boycotts against the country is causing alarm among liberal American Jews and others who perceive an attempt to suppress critical political opinion.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s right-wing government has long campaigned against the Palestinian-led Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, describing it as anti-Semitic and an attempt to erase Israel’s legitimacy.

The movement, launched in 2005 as a non-violent campaign to press Israel to heed international law and end its occupation of territory Palestinians seek for a state, has gathered momentum in recent years even if its economic impact remains negligible.

On March 6, Israel’s parliament passed legislation saying any individuals or representatives of groups supporting BDS-type boycotts - excluding Israeli citizens and permanent residents - would be barred from the country.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, a word, please; the government of Israel has already lost its legitimacy through the very apartheid treatment of Palestinians; through indefinite detention of Palestinian prisoners who may well have committed no crime, and the torturing of Palestinian children in order to obtain "confessions" leading to more arrests of Palestinians.

And you cannot, logically, claim that this movement is anti-Semitic, as it is not at all against the Jewish religion, but against practices of the Israeli government; any rational person can see that.

But then again, unfortunately, rationality and the Israeli government have not had an ongoing relationship for some time.

And since the language of morality is not one in which Tel Aviv appears to be fluent, the language of economics, as in the potential damage BDS has to ultimately, and peacefully, damage the Israeli economy, appears to be the only language the government in Tel Aviv understands.

So, sir, that is the language which will continue to be used against the Israeli government's practice of apartheid, until that practice is discontinued.

BREITBART AND INFOWARS UNDER INVESTIGATION FOR TIES TO RUSSIA

Federal investigators are examining whether far-right news sites played any role last year in a Russian cyber operation that dramatically widened the reach of news stories — some fictional — that favored Donald Trump’s presidential bid, according to a new report.

The Hill reported the probe is focused on discovering whether Russian operatives used conservative outlets to help spread stories favoring now-President Trump, McClatchy said Monday after confirming with two people familiar with the inquiry that the FBI’s Counterintelligence Division is driving the investigation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This so looks like McCarythyistic desperation on the cusp of madness, I hardly know where to begin.

And yes, having read, and occasionally linked to both blogs, I would characterise them as "conservative"; but "ultra-right?!?

In November's election, I really felt as though I had very little choice whatsoever than Trump, in light of the fact that the Democrats shoved Clinton down the voters' throats to the point of massive, collective regurgitation, and "arranged" for Bernie Sanders to lose its party's nomination.

Wikileaks proved primaries were rigged; the DNC undermined democracy

Busted! Document proves DNC, Clinton rigged election

Racketeering Lawsuit Exposing Nationwide Vote Rigging in DNC Primaries Could Derail Clinton

But unless and until the DNC is able to "get over" the reality that the American voters saw, in Clinton, a spoiled, wealthy corrupt warmonger who was pathologically incapable of identifying with everyday working people; until they are able to "get over" the reality that people knew she massively botched both Libya and Benghazi, and that her alleged "foreign policy chops" never met a war she didn't like, we are going to see more Federal tax money wasted on continuing investigations of this nature, full of sound and fury, and at the end of the day, most probably, signifying absolutely ....nothing.

A simple command allows the CIA to commandeer 318 models of Cisco switches

Cisco Systems said that more than 300 models of switches it sells contain a critical vulnerability that allows the CIA to use a simple command to remotely execute malicious code that takes full control of the devices. There currently is no fix.

WikiLeaks publishes docs from what it says is trove of CIA hacking tools
Cisco researchers said they discovered the vulnerability as they analyzed a cache of documents that are believed to have been stolen from the CIA and published by WikiLeaks two weeks ago. The flaw, found in at least 318 switches, allows remote attackers to execute code that runs with elevated privileges, Cisco warned in an advisory published Friday. The bug resides in the Cisco Cluster Management Protocol (CMP), which uses the telnet protocol to deliver signals and commands on internal networks. It stems from a failure to restrict telnet options to local communications and the incorrect processing of malformed CMP-only telnet options.

President Donald Trump has weaponized the revolving door by appointing defense contractors and their lobbyists to key government positions as he seeks to rapidly expand the military budget and homeland security programs.

EU Official: We’ll Force Members To Accept Refugees

The commissioner for the European Union’s “Common Immigration and Asylum Policy” said the bloc can force member states to accept refugees, the Associated Press reports.

The commissioner, Dimitris Avramopoulos, said that the bloc has the “tools, the means and the power,” to force member states to comply. Avramopoulos’s comments came during a visit to Poland, which has opposed EU efforts to resettle refugees. Poland argues that many of the refugees in Europe came to improve their economic prospects, rather than fleeing a dangerous war-zone.

Avramopoulos’s comments are the latest in a series of threats by EU officials to countries that refuse to accept refugees or challenge the EU’s quotas. “The Commission might start infraction procedures” against resistant nations, European Commission Vice-President Frans Timmermans declared in early February. He expressed his hope that “peer pressure” would force countries to comply.

OUR HOPELESSLY DYSFUNCTIONAL DEMOCRACY

Democracy in America has become a hollow shell. The conventional markers of democracy--elections and elected representatives--exist, but they are mere facades; the mechanisms of setting the course of the nation are corrupt, and the power lies outside the public's reach.

History has shown that democratic elections don't guarantee an uncorrupt, functional government. Rather, democracy has become the public-relations stamp of approval for corrupt governance that runs roughshod over individual liberty while centralizing the power to enforce consent, silence critics and maintain the status quo.

Consider Smith's Neofeudalism Principle #1: If the citizenry cannot replace a dysfunctional government and/or limit the power of the financial Aristocracy at the ballot box, the nation is a democracy in name only.

The War on Water Is a Very Real Crisis

One of the hidden costs of industrial agriculture is its intensive water usage. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), about 80 percent of U.S. consumptive water (and more than 90 percent in many Western states) is used for agricultural purposes.1

Only about 3 percent of the water on Earth is fresh water, which is dependent on rain for replenishment. Fresh water stored in aquifers, meanwhile, is being increasingly depleted, at a rate that cannot be naturally restored.2

In some areas, pollution has left water largely undrinkable while industry (often the same ones responsible for the pollution) is draining underground aquifers at alarming rates. Irrigation is necessary to grow crops (including alfalfa hay used primarily for cattle feed) in arid regions of the U.S., but experts say it's unsustainable.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What really concerns me is the toxicity of water levels in many places in the US.

We here in Hawaii are very lucky, because the water here is very pure and clear of contaminants, but kind of already lousy in many areas of the continental US.

BATTLE FOR MOSUL ENTERS ITS FINAL STAGE

Iraqi security forces (ISF), backed up by the US-led coalition’s airpower, artillery units, and special forces troops, have been struggling to retake the Old City from ISIS terrorists in western Mosul. The highly urbanized Old City is the main ISIS stronghold in this part of Mosul and ISIS units resist ISF in a fierce attempt to keep this key area under its control.

On March 20th, ISF units launched another push in the direction of Mosul’s Grand Nuri al-Kabir Mosque where the ISIS’ leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, declared the “Islamic Caliphate” in 2014. If ISF troops regain the Grand Nuri al-Kabir Mosque in western Mosul, they will achieve a big PR victory over the terrorists group. However, the situation in the area is very complicated.
