MAJOR: Anti-Russia Sanctions Have Cost Austria $100 Billion

Austrian municipalities were greatly affected by anti-Russian sanctions, especially companies in Austria and other European countries, said the former mayor of the city Linz, Detlef Wimmer, at the International Economic Forum in Yalta.

The official indicated that the economic restrictions caused damages amounting to “$100 billion”.

“The United States, which imposed sanctions against Russia, has harmed even the companies of many European countries, but Russia managed to survive, we see the situation in Crimea, we see what has been built here in the last five years,” said Wimmer.

The mayor of the city added that Austria at the district level does not share “the principles that lead to sanctions.”

The relations between Moscow and the West worsened as a result of the situation in Ukraine and the reincorporation of Crimea to Russia after the referendum held in March 2014, in which more than 96% of the voters endorsed this option.

Orthodox Easter 1944. USA, GB were murdering their Christian Allies

There is no easy explanation and certainly, there is no excuse for this barbarity. To make it even more shocking – while the number of Serbian cities were mercilessly bombed on this Eastern Orthodox holiday – none of the Croat cities saw the same destiny. Why were the Serbs – the nominal allies bombed while the nominal enemy was not? Theories are many and we can only guess.

Why are government contract recipients buying this lawmaker’s books by the truckload?

Nothing is safe from corruption — not even books, apparently. The mayor of Baltimore, Catherine Pugh, is now facing resignation over a massive scandal involving her recently released children’s book series, Healthy Holly. A number of businesses and organizations tied to Pugh have purchased hundreds of thousands of copies of her new book — and all of them have recently received generous contracts with the city of Baltimore.

So far, Pugh is taking a leave of absence for an undetermined length of time due to “medical reasons.” All 14 members of the city council have already signed and publicized a letter sent to Pugh, demanding her immediate resignation.

The letter consisted of only two sentences:

The entire membership of the Baltimore City Council believes that it is not in the best interest of the City of Baltimore for you to continue to serve as Mayor. We urge you to tender your resignation, effective immediately.

SECURING THE MEDITERRANEAN – Russia Obtains 50 Year Syrian Port Deal

The seaport of Tartus in Syria will be leased by Russia for 49 years for economic use and transport within a week, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov told reporters after meeting with Syrian President Bashar Assad.

In 2017, Russia and Syria signed an agreement on the deployment of the logistical center of the Russian Navy for 49 years in Tartus.

“We are very advanced in this matter and we hope that within a week the contract will be signed,” said Borisov.

The politician believes that this step will give a serious boost to mutual trade.

“I hope it will be beneficial, in the first place, for the Syrian economy,” said the deputy prime minister.

The agreement can be extended automatically for another 25 years. It is defensive in nature and is not directed against other countries.

UPDATE: U.S. Continues Supplying Kurds To Counteract Turkey

The mass media has been widely covering the details of the disastrous humanitarian situation in Rukban refugee camp over recent months. By the way, the crisis in other sites deserves more considerable attention. Al-Hol refugee camp located in Al-Hasakah province and run by the Syria Democratic Forces is one of them.

Every single day from 10 to 20 people, mainly women and children die due to the lack of drinking water, essential goods, and medicine. Only for the past two months, 250 children passed away in the camp. According to estimates, now more than 50,000 refugees reside there, although initially it was designed only for 25,000.

It turned out that the catastrophe of Al-Hol residents is caused by the illegal actions of the U.S. authorities. Their homes and shelters in the northern and north-eastern part of Syria have been destroyed by the indiscriminate airstrikes of the U.S.-led international coalition.

"They're Called Christians": Conservatives Mock Obama, Clinton For Tweets About Sri Lankan 'Easter Worshippers'

Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are being roundly criticized for their apparently coordinated decision not to use the word 'Christian' to describe the victims of the Easter Sunday bombings in Sri Lanka, which targeted three Catholic churches, among other targets. Some even speculated whether Obama's and Clinton's decision was intended to undermine the Christian faith in the US.

Instead of using the label "Christians", Obama and Clinton referred to the victims of the attacks as "Easter Worshippers", elicited ridicule from conservatives on Twitter.

Electric Car-Owners Shocked: New Study Confirms EVs Considerably Worse For Climate Than Diesel Cars

The Brussel Times reports that a new German study exposes how electric vehicles will hardly decrease CO2 emissions in Europe over the coming years, as the introduction of electric vehicles won't lead to a reduction in CO2 emissions from highway traffic.

According to the study directed by Christoph Buchal of the University of Cologne, published by the Ifo Institute in Munich last week, electric vehicles have "significantly higher CO2 emissions than diesel cars." That is due to the significant amount of energy used in the mining and processing of lithium, cobalt, and manganese, which are critical raw materials for the production of electric car

Churchgoers tackle a Navy veteran mother, 31, to the ground after she walked into an Easter service holding her 10-month-old son and a gun and started ranting about the rapture on stage

Churchgoers tackled a Navy veteran to the ground after she walked into an Easter service holding a gun and her baby son, and threatened to blow the building up.

Anna Conkey stormed into the Tsidkenu Church in the Clairemont area of San Diego on Sunday while waving the handgun around, police say.

The 31-year-old then walked onto the stage and started talking about the rapture while grasping the 10-month-old boy.

Terrified onlookers bravely stepped in and tackled Conkey to the ground before officers arrived on the scene to arrest her.

Conkey, who also worked as a journalist for NBC 7 San Diego, has ranted in YouTube videos and on Facebook posts that Jesus is a 'liar' and the Bible is a 'trap'.

Clinton Foundation took massive payoffs, promised Hammond Ranch and other publicly owned lands to Russians along with one-fifth of our uranium ore

"The Whore is associated with the Antichrist and the Beast of Revelation by connection with an equally evil kingdom." — Wikipedia

As it turns out there’s a lot more to the story behind the Malheur Wildlife Refuge in Princeton, Oregon. A whole lot more and this article is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg.

As you may or may not know, on January 4 Intellihub reported that the Hammond’s ranch and other ranchlands surrounding the refuge sit atop a vast swath of precious metals, minerals, and uranium that’s heavily desired by not only the federal government but foreign entities as well.

Prior to the publication of this article the federal government’s full motive to seize the land was not yet fully understood but it was known that nefarious elements were operating in the area.

After further investigation, more pieces of the puzzle have been put in place and you’re not going to believe the characters who are involved.

Will President Obama be charged with treason over illegally fabricated certificate?

President Barack H. Obama’s birth certificate has been proven to be a “forgery,” a fraudulently “fabricated document,” law enforcement officials and forensic investigators concluded with high certainty after an intense five year investigation.

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and lead investigator Mike Zullo along with forensic experts on two continents have concluded that President Obama’s birth certificate is not authentic and are seeking to take the matter up with the federal government.

Investigators presented evidence during a press conference Thursday detailing how, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that “nine points of forgery in which words, letters and hand-placed date stamps had been digitally copied and pasted” from another Hawaii State birth certificate to create the fake image posted on the official WhiteHouse.gov website.

When God is reduced into an Arsonist

We learned last Wednesday that Shlomo Aviner, a prominent Zionist rabbi and Yeshiva leader, suggested the fire that gutted Notre-Dame may have been divine retribution for the burning of Jewish manuscripts in 1242.

In the eyes of His followers, the Jewish almighty is an elastic substance. He morphs occasionally to fit with the needs of His favourite sons and daughters. Early Zionists, for instance, demoted God into an ‘estate agent’ as they reduced the Torah into a ‘title deed’. The early Zionists were secular Jews, they didn’t believe in God but were happy to expel the indigenous Palestinians in ‘His name’ and on ‘His behalf.’ But Rabbi Aviner takes us one step further. He made the Jewish God into a lazy but revengeful arsonist. The rabbi practically makes the Jewish God into a church burner who takes eight centuries to ‘hit back.’

SYRIAN WAR REPORT – APR. 22, 2019: CHEMICAL WEAPONS WAREHOUSE EXPLODED IN WESTERN ALEPPO

A supposed chemical weapons warehouse of Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nursa) near city of al-Atarib in western Aleppo exploded on April 20. According to pro-government sources, the warehouse was one of the sites where militants were arming rockets and shells with toxic materials.

Members of the notorious propaganda organization “White Helmets” reportedly recovered the bodies of at least six people killed in the explosion. Three injured persons were evacuated to nearby hospitals.

The version of the events provided by pro-militant media outlets argues that the targeted facility was belonging to a local pharmaceutical company known as “al-Khalil” and stored “baby milk” only. Pro-opposition media added that the explosion was likely caused by an improvised explosive device. Nonetheless, it remains unclear who would need to blow up a baby milk storage facility.

Elizabeth Warren Proposes $640 Billion Student Debt Relief

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) proposed Monday a new $640 billion student college debt relief program that would also eliminate college tuition for all two and four-year public colleges.
The 2020 Democrat presidential candidate unveiled the ambitious policy proposal as she attempts to distinguish herself from the large and progressive Democrat field. Warren released the proposal ahead of a series of youth-oriented CNN town halls Monday night with 2020 presidential candidates at Saint Anselm College in New Hampshire.

“It’s a problem for all of us,” Warren noting, that student college debt has reached more than $1.5 trillion and affects more than 40 million Americans. “It’s reducing home ownership rates. It’s leading fewer people to start businesses. It’s forcing students to drop out of school before getting a degree.”

Remembering when bankers tried to overthrow FDR and install a fascist dictator

When we look back at history, we have the benefit of knowing how things turned out — not true for those who were living through history's tensest moments. At key inflection points in history and in response to crises, most of the actors had no idea what would happen or what the right thing to do was. Sometimes, this uncertainty can drive people to bold and ill-advised actions.

Take the Great Depression. Something had to be done, but nobody knew what for certain. When Franklin Delano Roosevelt was elected on a campaign that promised to abandon the gold standard and provide government jobs for the unemployed, many in the grips of the crisis thought that this was certainly the wrong way to go.

"I Was The CIA Director - We Lied, We Cheated, We Stole"

Former CIA director and now Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has long accused WikiLeaks of being a “non-state hostile intelligence agency”, usually manipulated by Russia. Since Pompeo first made this claim as CIA Director in April 2017, countless major US news sources from NPR to CNN to the Washington Post have uncritically repeated the line, smearing Julian Assange and WikiLeaks as "Russian agents," and more broadly using the narrative to stifle independent journalism and government whistleblowers.

But whether Pompeo or any other current or former CIA director makes such a bombastic claim without offering evidence — such as more recently asserting that China and Russia have "helped destroy" Venezuela through faltering investments, should anyone ever believe a high CIA official? Certainly the mainstream media routinely takes intelligence officials simply at their word, but Pompeo himself recently admitted the CIA is in the business of lying, cheating, and stealing.

Mexican troops disarmed American soldiers on US side of the border

Armed Mexican troops disarmed two United States soldiers while they were on the American side of the border, U.S. defense officials have said.

U.S. Northern Command said in a statement that “five to six Mexican military personnel questioned two U.S. Army soldiers who were conducting border support operations” this month. The U.S. soldiers were in an unmarked Customs and Border Protection [CBP] vehicle near the southwest border near Clint, Texas.

Officials confirmed that the Mexican troops were armed with what seemed to be rifles. They raised their weapons when they saw the two U.S. soldiers, and then took a pistol from one and put it in the CBP vehicle. According to officials talking to CNN, the two Americans obliged “in an attempt to de-escalate a potential volatile situation.”

A Day At Our Beleaguered Border: Human Smugglers In Arizona Fire AK-47s At DHS Agents

As The Daily Wire has reported at length, the nation is currently experiencing an unprecedented crisis of bogus asylum-centric migrant influxes at our southern border that, as Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, recently told Conservative Review's Daniel Horowitz in an interview, makes for "uncharted waters" for our border and homeland security apparatus. U.S. Customs and Border Protection tried to put the border numbers in context, as part of its press release accompanying its report for the month of March:

In Fiscal Year 2019 to date, the U.S. Border Patrol has seen a more than 370% increase in the number of family units apprehended compared to the same time period in FY2018. Today, 60% of apprehensions along the Southwest border are family units and unaccompanied children, made up predominantly of individuals from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador.

FBI arrests leader of armed group stopping migrants in New Mexico

The FBI on Saturday said it had arrested Larry Hopkins, the leader of an armed group that is stopping undocumented migrants after they cross the U.S.-Mexico border into New Mexico.

The arrest came two days after the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) accused the group of illegally detaining migrants and New Mexico’s Democratic Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham ordered an investigation.

Hopkins, 69, also known as Johnny Horton, was arrested in Sunland Park, New Mexico, on a federal complaint charging him with being a felon in possession of firearms and ammunition, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said in a statement.

“We’re not worried about it, he’s going to be cleared,” said Jim Benvie, a spokesman for the United Constitutional Patriots (UCP), blaming his arrest on political pressure from Lujan Grisham.

Hopkins is the “national commander” of the UCP, which has had around half a dozen members camped out on a rotating basis near Sunland Park since late February.

Mexico warns of ‘deep concern’ over armed groups on U.S. border

Mexico said on Saturday it had “deep concern” about armed groups that intimidate and extort migrants on the border, shortly after the ACLU and Democratic senators called for a probe into such citizen efforts to block migrants from crossing.

“These types of practices can drive human rights abuses of people who migrate or request asylum or refuge in the United States,” Mexico’s Foreign Relations Ministry said in a statement, referring to “militia groups” in New Mexico.

It added that patrols “on the margins” of the law create risks for the safety of migrants.

On Thursday, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of New Mexico condemned the United Constitutional Patriots, which patrols the southern U.S. border in New Mexico, as a “fascist militia organization” operating outside the law.

Millennials will be crushed under debt: Non-housing debt now reaches $4+ trillion in the United States.

Millennials continue to face the struggles of living in a world where they are deep in debt and the idea of buying a home is becoming more of a farfetched pipe dream. As recently as 2009 non-housing debt stood at $2.5 trillion. Today it is over $4 trillion, a 60 percent increase in 10 years. Of course, it is no surprise that 2009 is the official end of the Great Recession and much of the recovery has come at the expense of going into massive debt. Millennials continue to face struggles in purchasing homes because they are saddled with $1.46 trillion in student debt. Non-housing debt is already creating deep pressures on the balance books of Millennial households.

French Ambassador Says Trump “Deal of the Century” Is DOA, Calls Israel ‘Apartheid State’

In an interview with the Atlantic last Friday, outgoing French Ambassador to the United States Gerard Araud made headlines after emphatically stating that Israel is already “an apartheid state” and that the Trump administration’s so-called “Deal of the Century” aimed at resolving the Israel-Palestine conflict is “99 percent doomed.”

Araud — whose first government post was in France’s Tel Aviv embassy, and who was the French ambassador to Israel from 2003 to 2006 — made the claim after being asked about his views on the Israel-Palestine “peace process.” After stating that he enjoys a “close” relationship with Jared Kushner — Trump’s son-in-law who has spent the last two years drafting a “peace plan” for the Trump administration — Araud noted that Kushner’s “proposal is very close to what the Israelis want.”

Modi Delivers Ironic “Peace Day” Message Netanyahu Borrowed from Hitler

As India’s election season drags on and nears its conclusion, current Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has continued to use speeches on the campaign trail to threaten using nuclear bombs against neighboring Pakistan in an attempt to portray himself as tough on “terrorism.”

In a speech delivered last Wednesday that was widely overlooked by international media, Modi used extreme rhetoric that threatens to raise already heightened tensions between India and Pakistan — both of which are nuclear powers that nearly went to war in late February. Modi stated:

Earlier, terrorists from Pakistan would come here and go back after conducting an attack. Pakistan would threaten us, saying it has the nuclear bomb and will press the button [if India retaliated]. We have the mother of nuclear bombs. I decided to tell them, do whatever you want to do but we will retaliate.”

Remembering the Crimes of the Powerful Exposed by Wikileaks’ Julian Assange

Wikileaks publisher Julian Assange has finally been imprisoned, an objective long sought by powerful parties he helped to expose over the past dozen years.

Assange’s “crime” was revealing deep, embarrassing, sometimes deadly, malfeasance by numerous actors, including the U.S. government, the media, the Democratic Party-Clinton machine, and Israel.

Wikileaks revealed the U.S. government’s cover-up of torture, cruelty, the killing of civilians, spying on its own citizens and others. It exposed Democratic Party cheating and manipulation, the fraudulence of “Russiagate.” It unmasked Israeli plans to keep Gaza on the brink of collapse, to use violence against Palestinian nonviolence, to make war upon civilians. All of this will be detailed below.

Redacted’s Karavani Aims Her Water Cannon at Nestle and Its Poland Spring Water Fraud

Nestlé is facing a class-action lawsuit from consumers in eight states in New England, based on claims that the Poland Spring brand is “100% Natural Spring Water.” The plaintiffs, from Maine to Pennsylvania, are alleging deceptive labeling.

A classic example is labeling something “all natural.” That label really means that all of the ingredients occur in nature, but it doesn’t guarantee a healthier product. There are plenty of unhealthy things in nature, like tobacco. However, the label “all natural” implies a healthier product because many other products are pumped full of chemicals. What Nestlé does is more egregious. They put “Poland Spring” on their water. Consumers often make the reasonable assumption the water comes from the Poland Spring in Maine that is the implied source. They then think it’s fresh spring water when in reality it’s groundwater.

On Kate Smith, History and Context

Most of all, I learned that history is messy. Studying history reveals many things that make people uncomfortable to discuss. Anything that involves human beings, human institutions and human behavior rarely is all bad or all good, either in the collective or individual sense.

That brings me to the controversy surrounding the late Kate Smith and the decisions taken by the New York Yankees and Philadelphia Flyers to stop playing her rendition of "God Bless America," and the Flyers' additional decision to cover and then remove a statue commemorating her unique relationship to the team both during and after her lifetime tied to her rendition of Irving Berlin's patriotic song. The controversy has nothing to do with "God Bless America" but, rather, to two songs that Smith sang in the early 1930s: "That's Why Darkies Were Born," and "Pickaninny Heaven."

Let's start by applying historical context.

When the bright planet Jupiter rises in the southeastern sky at about 12:15 a.m. local time on Tuesday morning, April 23, it will be positioned 3 degrees to the lower left of the waning gibbous moon. The moon and planet will cross the sky together for the rest of the night, eventually moving to a point low in the southwestern pre-dawn sky. The duo will make a lovely photo opportunity when composed with an interesting foreground landscape.(Image: © Starry Night software)

If you're up late in the coming nights, you may want to pay attention to the waning gibbous moon — for it will be visiting the two largest gas giants of our solar system early on Tuesday and Thursday mornings (April 23 and 25).

On Tuesday morning, the moon will sidle up to the largest planet in our solar system, giant Jupiter. Then, two mornings later, on Thursday, the moon will meet up with the ringed wonder of our planetary system, Saturn.

COMEDIAN WHO "CAME TO BREAK THE SYSTEM" WINS UKRAINE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION BY LANDSLIDE

According to exit polls, millions of voters - weary of war and economic hardship - have thoroughly rebuked the incumbent elites, overwhelmingly voting for 41-year-old TV comedian Volodymyr Zelenskii in Ukraine's presidential election today.

"I voted for Zelenskii because everything he said is true," said Viktoriia Bengalska, a 45-year-old secretary in Kiev.

"It's impossible to survive on this salary, prices have increased like crazy, and we were promised something totally different."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I just have to wonder if the folks formally in this government and others, let's say,.... President Obama, Obama admits, on CNN, that the US government was a part of the group to replace Yanukovych with Poroshenko
or .....Victoria Nuland,US spent 5 billion ,US, on installing Poroshenko and the folks from the the world bank, who backed the cu-cu-ca CHOO" in Ukraine in 2014, feel about Poroshenko's having fallen flat on his face in this election, meaning that they are going to have to negotiate with the new guy, to see what kind of "deal" they can work with him.

You have GOT to love both the the hubristic stupidity and irony of this move, and what it has actually cost those who brought it about.

And President Obama, and Ms. Nuland, since it was never YOUR money you spent, but the money of the American people, I would politely suggest, that this amount would have done a lot to assist our Veterans, who are dealing with chronic health issues, both physically and psychologically, after they are released from their term of service.

But there is one thing that I would suggest may happen in this "route" of the American-backed government; the people of Ukraine will never believe anything any US administration says, henceforward.

Great job, there, Obama and Nuland!! Way to go!!

Just weeks after a New York man was arrested for allegedly making death threats against Representative Ilhan Omar, another Trump supporter was arrested for leveling threats at prominent Democrats in voicemails rife with racist, homophobic, and misogynistic slurs. Federal prosecutors say that Florida’s John Kless left threatening phone messages for the offices of 2020 presidential candidates Representative Eric Swalwell and Senator Cory Booker, as well as Representative Rashida Tlaib. In all of the messages, Kless reportedly made Islamophobic references or threats to Representative Ilhan Omar.

PENTAGON CLAIMS 1,100 HIGH SCHOOLS BAR RECRUITERS; PEACE ACTIVISTS OFFER $1,000 AWARD IF ANY SUCH SCHOOL CAN BE FOUND

SOURCE: WASHINGTONSBLOG.COM
By David Swanson and Pat Elder

According to statements in February by the Secretary of the Army, various U.S. high schools are barring military recruiters from access to students. The Secretary of the Navy this past December said that public school boards are keeping military recruiters out of 1,100 high schools.

The two of us are offering a $1,000 prize (details below) to any public U.S. high school that can identify itself as fitting this description.

Peace activists who struggle to gain admittance to high schools to present the case against military enlistment have not in recent years encountered a school that barred admittance to the military. The military has not publicly named a single example from its claimed list of 1,100 public high schools.

In fact, federal law requires schools that receive federal funding under the Every Student Succeeds Act to allow in military recruiters if they allow in college or job recruiters.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think that every parent of a kid in high school should, as their parent, having the right to have that child, or children, in an "opt-out" event, or sent for study time on the days recruiters are due to show up.

When they become legal adults, of course, they should have the opportunity to talk with military recruiters; but I would hope that their mom and dad would also see to it, that their kids had equal time for an appointment with a Vet who has actually seen combat, as they would the military recruiters.

BRITAIN'S ASSASSINATION PROGRAMME STRETCHING BACK TO 9/11

SOURCE: TRUEPUBLICA.ORG.UK
Reprieve is a legal charity which seeks to uphold the rule of law and the rights of individuals around the world—with a specific focus on death penalty cases and abuses committed under the umbrella of the “War on Terror”. It has submitted written evidence to Parliament’s Defence Committee in this regard. It makes strong reference to Britain carrying out covert air strikes outside of declared war zones—primarily, in Pakistan, Somalia and the like. Reprieve’s investigations have included the role played by the UK in facilitating the covert strikes carried out by US bodies including the CIA and JSOC (Joint Special Operations Command). As part of its work, Reprieve also represents a number of relatives of civilians killed—in Reprieve’s view, illegally—in such covert strikes. You can read the submissions HERE.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That Britain's government was not only capable of state sponsored, extra-judicial assassinations, but employed them frequently, should be no surprise to anyone with a cursory knowledge of contemporary British history.

Climate Activism: An Ideology in Search of a Justification

In the abstract, peak-oil theory simply makes a series of mathematical claims about the long-term course of a finite or nonrenewable resource’s uses. In the hands of environmentalist activists, it became an instant cause for alarm. Oil’s nonrenewable nature meant that a resource-depletion event was imminent and that the failure to aggressively adopt “clean” fuel alternatives would lead to a catastrophic collapse of the global energy sector and thus the global economy.

These apocalyptic claims were commonplace at the time of the first Earth Day event in 1970, when environmentalists confidently predicted a complete exhaustion of the world’s oil supply by the year 2000. In subsequent years the environmentalist movement en masse adopted the logic of the famously failed Malthusian doomsayer Paul Ehrlich to suggest an imminent death spiral in the oil-based-energy market, setting a deadline for the global conversion away from fossil fuels.

CHURCHES HAVE BECOME THE #1 TARGET FOR HATE ATTACKS - AN AVERAGE OF 105 EVERY SINGLE MONTH

SOURCE: MICHAEL SNYDER @ ENDOFTHEAMERICANDREAM.COM
The bombings in Sri Lanka have once again put a spotlight on the rising tide of violence against Christians all over the world. According to Open Doors USA, an average of 105 churches and/or Christian buildings are burned or attacked every month. That is more than three per day, and almost all of those attacks get ignored by the mainstream media in the western world. In addition, an average of 345 Christians are killed for faith-related reasons every single month. Of course these numbers will soon be out of date, because violence against Christians continues to escalate all over the globe, and the horrifying attacks that we just witnessed in Sri Lanka are a perfect example. The following comes from CBS News…

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Religions who teach their followers to hate, maim, and kill followers of other religious groups, are, by definition, murderers themselves; they just delegate others to actually do the messy business of killing, and in many flavors of Islam, the concept of "suicide bombing" by those of the Muslim faith are excused and exonerated for so doing.

For me, the highest "octave" of spiritual awareness, is looking at all of those around them, even if they come from another faith tradition, as brothers and sisters, as they walk on this journey of life with the rest of us.

An interesting use of this, is the Hindu greeting, "Namaste". I have heard translated two ways; the first is, "this means nothing, or that all people are equal in the eyes of their Gods". The second way of interpreting it, makes more sense to me, and that is "The Light of God in me, recognises the Light of God in You. So come, let us work together!"

JUDGE TELLS RESEARCH CENTER TO GIVE BACK FACIAL RECOGNITION DOCUMENTS THE NYPD FORGOT TO REDACT

Contained in the steady drip of documents handed over to the Center was something the NYPD Wasn't supposed to release in unredacted form. It took almost a month for the department to realize it had screwed up. Rather than let uncensored bygones be bygones, the NYPD took it up with the judge presiding over the case. The NYPD's legal rep wasn't too thrilled with the department's inadvertent transparency.

City attorney Jeffrey Dantowitz conceded that the disclosure was a fiasco.

“That a few documents were inadvertently produced without the intended redactions, while careless, was neither an intelligent nor voluntary disclosure," he wrote in court papers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable.

THE NATIONAL DEBT IS THE MOST SERIOUS CRISIS AMERICA FACES

A generation ago, the national debt stood at just a smidgen over USD $4 trillion and a young presidential candidate named Bill Clinton was discussing a great plan he had to have it entirely paid off by now. Oops. The national debt is now 5.5 times bigger.

More than anything, this astoundingly bad public policy is the fault of Barack Obama, undoubtedly the most irresponsible president in our history…who added on more to the national debt than all other presidents combined in an orgy of Washington, DC, debauchery that saw the size of the federal government mushroom while hundreds of thousands of new bureaucrats were added to federal payrolls, and Washington, DC, housing prices skyrocketed as federal government employees and private industry sub-contractors paid for by the government reveled in their six-figure paychecks and outrageously lavish healthcare and pension plans… all paid for by us, the taxpayers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks as though winning a seat in Congress, or being one of the "sweetly monied" contractors it uses, is akin these days to winning the lottery; and a big one, at that.

Why upbeat pop song like the Beach Boys' Good Vibrations are more effective at waking you up than a beeping alarm

Scientists examined how 50 people woke up each morning at home and the impact this had on their mental performance in the hours after getting out of bed.

They found that people who woke up listening to melodic music suffered lower levels of sleep inertia compared to those who woke up to a classical beeping alarm sound.

Researchers found that while sound is generally good at attracting human attention, melodic music may be better at holding it for longer and help get the brain going in the morning.

This melodic music a appeared to almost entirely neutralise sleep inertia in those taking part in the study.

'No illusions', but there are 'chances' – Russian PM on Ukraine elections and bilateral relations

Ukrainian president-elect Volodymyr Zelensky won’t change his campaign rhetoric about Russia, but there is a real chance for Moscow-Kiev ties to improve after the election, according to Russian PM Dmitry Medvedev.

“There is no doubt the new head of state will remain committed to his campaign rhetoric about Russia, repeating the same ideological cliches… I have no illusion about that,” Medvedev wrote on his VK social media page.

He expressed hope, however, that there is “a chance to improve cooperation” between Russia and Ukraine, if the new leadership uses “common sense” and a “pragmatic and responsible approach” that takes into account political realities in Ukraine.

Crewed flight setback? Leaked video suggests SpaceX capsule is ANNIHILATED in safety test ‘anomaly’

With SpaceX and NASA still mute on details of what they dubbed an ‘anomaly’ during the latest Crew Dragon capsule safety test – a video has leaked online apparently showing a ‘rapid unscheduled disassembly’ event, aka a big boom.

A huge plume of smoke could be seen rising from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida on Saturday, after the Crew Dragon capsule being developed by SpaceX to ferry NASA astronauts to space reportedly exploded on the test stand. While the company confirmed suffering an “anomaly” during the test of the emergency response system’s abort engines, it has not shared any details about the accident.

Ukraine’s president-in-waiting Zelensky vows to end conflict in Donbass with ‘POWERFUL INFOWAR’

Bringing the civil war in eastern Ukraine to an end appears to be one of the top priorities for Zelensky. Promising to announce some kind of a plan shortly, he asked the reporters for help in the upcoming “infowar” that he says would help end the conflict, which, since 2014, has been raging between Kiev’s troops and the rebel self-proclaimed republics.

"We will launch a very powerful information war to end the war in Donbass."

He then vowed to “act within the Normandy format,” referring to the French-German-Russian-Ukrainian talks on war in Donbass, saying that “we will continue the Minsk process, we will restart it.”
