Alcoholism epidemic: More than 1 in 8 Americans are now alcoholics. Alcoholism has risen 49% in the US in just 11 years

Americans are becoming increasingly heavy drinkers, with the greatest rise among women, older people and ethnic minorities, national surveys have shown.

Two large surveys carried out in 2001-02 and 2012-13 have found that harmful levels of drinking are increasing among almost all demographics in the US. The number of teetotallers is falling, while high-risk drinking and alcoholism rose sharply during the 11-year period, according to an analys is published in JAMA Psychiatry.

UN Envoy Haley Heads to Vienna to Challenge Iran’s Nuclear Deal Compliance

While most of the Trump Administration opposes the president’s efforts to come up with some pretext for withdrawing from the P5+1 nuclear deal with Iran, Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley has appeared to be on board with the idea, even declaring Iran in violation of the deal in June, shortly before President Trump grudgingly admitted they were in compliance.

IAEA inspectors continue to confirm Iran’s compliance with the P5+1 deal
President Trump has suggested he’s going to claim a violation next time, and Haley is reportedly planning to visit the IAEA in Vienna later this month, with the visit expected to focus on Iranian compliance. The IAEA has affirmed Iran remains in compliance monthly since the deal went into effect.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a brilliant demonstration of Ms. Haley serving her Israeli masters by attempting to destroy the P5+1 accord with Iran, as a prelude to a US war against it.

If one takes a look at her bio Biography of Ambassador Nikki Haley, you will notice that she does have a BS degree...in accounting, not nuclear energy or nuclear weapons.

She is probably the most completely scientifically unqualified American President Trump could have possibly chosen to attempt to pick holes in what the IAEA has continued, in its scientific capabilities, to claim about Iran completely complying with the P5+1 agreement.

Please remember; Israel would like nothing better than the extermination of its alleged existential enemy in the Middle East, Iran; but only with American blood and American money.

LAPD STILL TRYING TO LAUNCH POLICE DRONES DESPITE PUBLIC OUTCRY

The general concern over police spying has been addressed vigorously by the Los Angeles public for many years. As I covered in early 2015, public concern heightened even further when the LAPD acquired drones from the Seattle PD and began to discuss guidelines for implementation.

An organization called Stop LAPD Spying Coalition was formed specifically to document their resistance to secret drone surveillance. The group condemned the police commission as “an affront to the principles of democracy,” after the commission closed a session to the public and refused to allow comment on police proposals.

What appears to be absent, according to this new report, is the previously explicit deference given to “public acceptance,” now stressing their intention to push ahead with “approval from a high-ranking department official” under “narrow and prescribed uses.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The problem with drones is, they can, and most likely will, be weaponised,as we have seen in Afghanistan and Iraq, and God only knows with what.

LAPD has a not necessarily stellar reputation for observing human rights:

Recent LAPD controversies have officials in damage-control mode

But the temptation to outfit these drones with everything but the kitchen sink may prove impossible to defeat; and therein lies the problem. The potential to impose draconian control of a city's population, through fear of massive retaliation through the use of such weapons, for the slightest legal infraction, may prove irresistible for the LAPD.

FAKE COMPANIES IN JORDAN BUY LAND IN OCCUPIED WEST BANK FOR JEWISH SETTLERS

A local official revealed on Tuesday that a network of fake companies based in Jordan has been established in order to buy Palestinian land in the occupied West Bank for Jewish settlers, Al-Araby Al-Jadeed has reported. The settlers, it is claimed, are from the settlement of Amona, which Israel also regarded as illegal; and evacuated earlier this year.

According to the neighbourhood head in Silwad, located to the east of Ramallah, a Jordanian MP is involved. Abdul-Rahman Saleh added that these companies pay high prices for the land, up to 60,000 Jordanian Dinars for each dunam (quarter of an acre), whereas the market rate would be around 2,000 Dinars. Saleh said that some of the Palestinians travelled to Jordan to be paid the money.

After a review of the companies in question, he explained, they denied that they are buying land for Israeli settlers. However, he stressed that they have a history of buying real estate in Jerusalem on behalf of Israelis.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please remember; Zionists do not want peace with the Palestinians, but they want territory, and by any means necessary.

In order to understand the impact of this desire, take a look at what Zionist Israelis look to establish: Eretz Israel, or Greater Israel, from the Nile to the Euphrates. Look at how much of other countries will have to have portions of them gobbled up by Israel to accomplish that.

As Tensions Rise, Here's What You Need to Know to Prepare for a Nuclear Attack

Last weekend, incendiary words between the two countries leave little doubt in anyone's mind that a nuclear attack is likely to happen. The international smack-talk is leading somewhere.

Many people strongly believe that this is a media creation and that North Korea isn't actually a threat. Even if that is the case, it wouldn't be hard to imagine that an attack could happen on US soil, regardless of the perpetrator. Although we must always watch the news with a healthy dose of skepticism, this isn't the purpose of the article. Survival is.

It's time to talk about how to prepare for a nuclear attack.

NZ in 'productivity recession', JBWere says

New Zealand's economy is in a "productivity recession" and relies on migrant-fuelled population growth to expand while stocks are overvalued and investors should cut their holdings by about a quarter, says JBWere.

In an economic update on New Zealand, titled "Working Harder, not Smarter," the advisory firm says headline gross domestic product has continued "to print impressively" but GDP per hour worked has flatlined for five years and per-capita GDP is similar to Japan's.

"In the absence of productivity gains, our economy has relied on more people, working more hours," analysts at the firm said. "Net migration provides a conveyor belt of fresh labour, but it comes with attendant bottlenecks in housing and infrastructure. The profitability windfall for these sectors has not arrived, with earnings warnings from all the major listed construction companies this year."

Cleveland Clinic drug pusher Steven Nissen claims statin drug side effects are all “imagined” by patients, blames Natural News for covering side effects

Angry about the fact that sales of statin drugs have reached record lows, a cardiologist from the Cleveland Clinic is blaming both science and online media websites like Natural News for the drop, claiming that this “internet-driven cult” is needlessly scaring people away from taking the cholesterol-lowering medications.

Denying the reported side effects of statins as being “imagined” by patients, Steven Nissen claims that statins are 100 percent safe and effective, and that anyone who says otherwise is a charlatan. He wrote in a recent editorial that anyone who claims to be suffering side effects of statins is experiencing the “nocebo effect,” meaning they’re just making it up “in their heads.”

Judicial Watch Files Supreme Court Amicus Brief Supporting Ohio’s Process of Cleaning Voter Rolls

Judicial Watch announced it has filed an amicus curiae brief in the U.S. Supreme Court asking the court to reverse a decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, which had ruled that Ohio’s process for cleaning voter rolls was in violation of the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 (NVRA) (Jon Husted, Ohio Secretary of State v. Philip Randolph Institute, et al. (No. 16-980)).

According to Judicial Watch, “Ohio’s Supplemental Process allows the sending of a statutory confirmation notice to any registrant who has not had any voting-related activity for two years. After that, the registrant may be removed from the rolls if there is no response or further activity for two general federal elections.” The Sixth Circuit concluded that this amounted to removing a voter for failing to vote, which is forbidden by federal law.

'Comrade in Arms': Russia is developing a freethinking war machine

Kalashnikov Concern - the largest arms manufacturer in Russia - has created a seven ton robot called ‘Soratnik’ that’s designed to help the country’s military battle terrorists at home and abroad. It has caterpillar tracks to traverse rugged terrain and thick armor to withstand artillery and grenade attacks. Looking like a small, unmanned tank, Soratnik can be equipped with a wide range of weapons from 7.62 mm cannons to 12.7 mm machine guns. Engineers also plan to deck the machine out with 30 mm jet fighter guns and anti-aircraft missiles. This robot can cooperate with UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) flying over battlefields and operators controlling the robot from the safety of a bunker or secured area. Its software uses AI and Soratnik works in three different modes. The first is with an operator, who is able to control the metal beast from up to 10 km away. The second is semi-automatic mode, but information about this is being kept top secret.

Space drugs: how to cure people in zero gravity?

The effects of space flights on humans are unpredictable. Radiation is the greatest danger: out of the 22 Soviet cosmonauts that have passed away to date, over 40 percent died of cancer. Orbital flights cause other illnesses as well, from partial deafness to osteoporosis. Some probiotics were developed to restore astronauts’ digestion, and space foods have probiotic supplements. In microgravity, the calcium in our bones is lost by excretion into blood and urine, which may exacerbate kidney stone disease. In 1982, cosmonaut Anatoly Berezovsky experienced an acute colic during a space flight. “It hurt so much I wanted to jump out into open space,” he recalls. Berezovsky decided not to report the incident to the control center in order to avoid aborting the mission, and he even agreed to stay in orbit to set a new record: 211 days. Treating diseases in space is not an easy task. The human body behaves differently in microgravity, even on the cellular level.

Devastating Toll of Hunger on US School Children

Hunger is a growing problem for US children and increasingly affects their performance in school, making it more difficult for them to focus on their classes or do homework. It also contributes to behavior and discipline problems.

This was the finding of a report issued last week by the anti-hunger charity Share Our Strength, based on a survey of 500 low-income parents and their teenage children in public schools. Some 325 teachers were also interviewed. “Low-income” was defined as at or below 185 percent of the official poverty line, or $45,417 a year for a family of four.

Among children in low-income families, 59 percent said they had gone to school hungry. In the richest country in the world, with the largest concentration of billionaires, one in six children faces hunger, some 13 million in all.

Trump Ends Covert Aid to Syrian Rebels Trying to Topple Assad

It seems that the CIA is absolutely not listening to the White House on this issue, and if, in fact, what Mr. Papadopolous is saying is true, it would seem that President Trump needs to yank CIA Director Pompeo's chain right now, and very severely, on this issue.

Tulsi Gabbard voted in favor of the bill, once again proving that Republicans and Democrats always find common ground when it comes to beating the drums of war against sovereign nations who have taken very little unwarranted hostile action — if any — towards the United States.

But these are just sanctions, not acts of war, right? There’s nothing wrong with economically bullying other countries into submission over non-compliance with the current global order, right?

Not quite.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears to me that those in the bowels of power, in the Unhinged, Surveilled States of America, are looking for some war - any war - to happen ahead of the complete financial collapse this country is looking at experiencing, most likely, relatively soon.

North Korea v the US: how likely is war?

No one in the region, not even North Korea, wants another war. But Kim Jong-un is going to push it as far as he can to get what he wants: recognition from the United States that North Korea is a nuclear power, and legitimacy at home as a ruler who can defend his people against the big, bad US.

In some ways, Trump’s threats play into the North Korean calculus: Kim Jong-un wants his people to believe that the United States continues to threaten the very existence of North Korea. That fearmongering brings the North Korean people together, and justifies the regime’s diversion of precious resources into building nuclear bombs and ballistic missiles.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It's that "uncertainty factor" of one stupid mistake, one clumsily missed communication, that could tip the region - and by extension, the US military, into a shooting war.

Why it could take months for the US to get ready for war with North Korea

The US military isn't in any position right now to strike North Korea with the kind of campaign that would be needed to bring battlefield success and would need weeks, if not months, to sort out the logistics, analysts say.
Mark Hertling, a retired US Army general and CNN analyst, said the tens of thousands of US civilians, many of them military dependents, would first need to be evacuated from South Korea.

"How do you get the families off the peninsula? You have to do that first," he said.
The US would also need to add to its forces in the region in what Hertling called "a reinforcement of shooters." These would include US Navy ships and submarines armed with cruise missiles, plus Air Force bombers that could operate out of bases in Japan or Guam, he said.

"Some of these are in places in the region, but not enough to decapitate North Korea in terms of their artillery," Hertling said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF Kim Jong Un actually decides on a first strike against American assets (or elements in his military decide for him that this is to be done), the US government may well not have "months" to prepare.

The Democrats Adopt Trump And Bannon’s Economic Nationalism

The Democratic Party unveiled a new portion of its “Better Deal” program Wednesday, August 2, in which it adopted wholesale the economic nationalism of President Donald Trump and his fascist adviser, Steve Bannon. Many of the proposals are implicitly or explicitly directed against China, the main target of US imperialism in the Asia-Pacific region.

Diplomacy fails to defuse India, China border crisis: sources

India's diplomatic efforts to end a seven-week military standoff with China have hit a roadblock, people briefed on the talks said, prompting Chinese state-run media to trumpet rhetoric of "unavoidable countermeasures" on the unmarked border.

China has insisted that India unilaterally withdraw its troops from the remote Doklam plateau claimed by both Beijing and Indian ally Bhutan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A war between these two nuclear-armed countries could be an absolute and complete disaster for both their people, and surrounding countries.

Let us hope sane heads will prevail in New Dehli and Beijing, and that this issue gets resolved quickly and quietly, without bloodshed.

Gazan travelers face new security restrictions from Israel

Restrictions include a ban on laptop computers, hard-shell suitcases and toiletries; restrictions imposed due to security concerns, but exceptions to be handled 'case by case.'

New Israeli restrictions on Palestinians exiting the Gaza Strip, including a ban on laptop computers, hard-shell suitcases and even shampoo and toothpaste, have further disrupted travel for the few who are allowed to cross the border into Israel.

Israel is citing unspecified security concerns as the reason for forcing engineers, journalists, business people and human rights workers to leave their electronic work tools behind.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These new restrictions have absolutely nothing to do with security, and everything to do with Tel Aviv's making travel from Gaza even more miserable than it already is.

Google a cesspool of anti-conservative hatred, bigotry and intolerance… employees speak out

The world’s biggest search engine, technology, and media company was shaken to its core over the weekend by a 10-page memo criticizing the web giant’s lack of diversity when it comes to political ideology.

The missive, penned by engineer James Damore — who has since been fired — described the corporation as a Left-wing “echo chamber” that shuts out and discriminates against conservatives.

Damore “confirmed his dismissal in an email, saying that he had been fired for ‘perpetuating gender stereotypes,’” Zero Hedge reported, adding:

The document’s author also wrote that employees with conservative political beliefs are discriminated against at Google and lamented about how “leftist” ideology is harmful. It argued that the company should have a more “open” culture where its viewpoint would be welcomed. The document said that improving racial and gender diversity is less important than making sure conservatives feel comfortable expressing themselves at work.

Facebook declares WAR on CHILDREN: Censors independent science that tries to protect infants from medical harm

As part of Facebook’s war against truth and reality, the social media Ministry of Truth just blocked 100 percent of all posts from Natural News, one of the internet’s most trafficked sites on independent science, natural medicine and disease prevention. Having attracted over 2.2 million Facebook likes over the last decade, Natural News is relied upon by millions of people for independent science and medicine reporting that blows the whistle on dangerous prescription medications, vaccine adverse events and toxic pesticides and herbicides.

Editor of science journal that forced retraction of Seralini GMO study entered a promotional contract with Monsanto right before smearing the research

On March 20, 2015, the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) unleashed a firestorm with its analysis of five organophosphate insecticides and herbicides, including glyphosate. Their finding that “the herbicide glyphosate and the insecticides malathion and diazinon were classified as probably carcinogenic to humans (Group 2A)” has resulted in at least 100 lawsuits against agri-giant Monsanto, whose Roundup herbicide contains more than 50 percent glyphosate. The lawsuits, which are being handled in the U.S. District Court in San Francisco, allege that exposure to this dangerous chemical has resulted in the plaintiffs or their loved ones developing non-Hodgkin lymphoma. In the course of these lawsuits, some very damaging documents have come to light, including evidence that the editor-in-chief of the journal that retracted a damaging glyphosate study had a contractual relationship with Monsanto.

Israeli army buying local cannons to sidestep international ban on cluster bombs

The Israeli army will soon put into use new artillery cannons purchased from local defense company Elbit rather than a German firm over concerns that the latter would restrict the cannons from firing cluster bombs.

The use of cluster bombs is banned by an international treaty signed by more than 100 countries, including Germany, because of the high rate of civilian casualties and injuries associated with them. According to a now-retired Israel Defense Forces officer familiar with the matter, Israel was concerned that the Germans would not give the army the “complete independence” it sought in the use of the cannons. In light of this, the Defense Ministry recommended purchasing Israeli cannons, without inviting bids.

The South Korean firm Hanwha Techwin was also approached but ultimately rejected because the cannons it manufactures are semi-automatic, while the Artillery Corps wants an automatic weapon that has a faster firing rate and requires a smaller team to operate.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When left unexploded, and infants or toddlers try to play with them, these cluster munitions will tear tiny children into shreds; but for the IDF, when it comes to Palestinian infants and toddlers, of course, that doesn't matter.

The Sly Effort to Criminalize the BDS Movement in the U.S.

What would you do if you were Palestinian? In 1998, Ehud Barak, then in the running to become Israel’s next prime minister, said that if he were a young Palestinian he “would have entered one of the terrorist organizations and fought from there”—a statement that became a flashpoint in the campaign (which Barak went on to to win). Of course the moral problems with killing innocents are obvious, which is one reason terrorism is seldom effective as a political tactic. Yet the fact that Barak’s candor didn’t sink his political career suggests an underlying Israeli understanding of why Palestinians fight to retain their land.

But if you don’t want to kill random Israelis, what avenues of struggle for Palestinian independence are available? In the occupied West Bank, peaceful protests against Israeli land seizures typically are met with tear gas, skunk spray, rubber bullets, and arrests. The United States generally shields Israel from UN criticism.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The BDS movement must be allowed to continue, because economic pressure is the only peaceful language Israelis understand.

Western Governments Still Eyeing Libyan ‘Prize’

More than six years after the US-led "liberation" of Libya, that North African country remains an open wound symbolizing the abject failure of US and European interventionist foreign policy.

The obsession of the US neocons, whether Democrat or Republican, for "regime change" and other frivolous foreign military interventions has been consistently and eloquently criticized by the likes of Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-SC), Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) and not least by former Congressman Ron Paul, to name but a handful.

Since our last Libya report of 27th July over a week ago, the ceasefire "brokered" by French President Macron at his Paris Summit with Libyan National Army head Khalifa Belqasim Haftar and UN-backed prime minister, Fayez al-Sarraj is in reality nowhere to be found.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Libyan people need to determine their own destiny, and this should not be manipulated by any outside national forces, period, end of discussion.

What happened to them, after Ghaddafi was assassinated by Western forces, was utterly criminal.

Lockheed Sees Surge in Interest in Missile Defense Over North Korea Tensions

Several times a week, US officials threaten military action against North Korea. Even on days when they don’t media reports of tensions with North Korea continue the narrative that a huge war could erupt at any moment.

All these rumors of war are a big windfall for the Pentagon’s number one arms supplier, Lockheed Martin, as they are reporting that the surge in talk about North Korea’s missiles is leading to a surge in interest in their missile defense systems.

On the one hand, the reliability of any missile defense system is questionable under even optimal conditions, as evidenced by US failures. On the other hand, those Lockheed systems are very expensive, and have a really good profit margin on them.

"Ernst Zundel deserved agony, not a quiet exit”

In our August 7 eulogy for the late Ernst Zündel, we alluded to the "Talmudic mentality" and the penchant of people afflicted with it for revenge and hatred, which they psychologically project on to Zündel in paroxysms of rage and libel.

On the day we published our tribute, Mark Bonokoski stepped forth to seemingly confirm our observation. Mr. Bonokoski writes for one of Canada’s largest newspapers, The Toronto Sun. It’s difficult to account for the fact that the Sun, which wears its human rights’ heart on its self-righteous sleeve, would print Bonokoski’s disgusting column, with its sadistic craving to see a pound of flesh extracted from Zündel, but that’s what has occurred.

Radioactive Plutonium Detected In Air Near Hanford Nuclear Facility

Just ten days after the emergency at Washington's Hanford nuclear facility in early May, when a tunnel collapse prompted concerns about radioactive waste fallout as we described then in "'Serious Situation' After Tunnel Collapse At WA Nuclear Facility; Evacuation Ordered, No-Fly Zone In Place", we reported that the U.S. Department of Energy was scrambling to deal with a second emergency, when signs emerged that a massive underground double shell nuclear waste holding tank may also be leaking. As reported then, the tank in question - AZ 101 - was put into service in 1976, with a life expectancy of 20 years. Through 2017, it has been holding hot, boiling radioactive and chemically contaminated waste for 41 years.

"Inclusive" Party Rep. Maxine Waters Won't Rule Out All-Black Party

Speaking on "The Breakfast Club" radio show yesterday morning, Daily Caller's Amber Athey reports that Waters was asked if it was time for black people to form their own party.

“No, not at this point,” Waters said. “You have to show that you’re willing and you’re able to put the numbers together and exercise your influence.”

“We still are not voting our influence yet,” she continued.

“What we should do is organize our power, exercise our power, particularly in the Democratic Party because that’s where most of us are.”
Waters then suggested that when black people are “strong enough” they may branch out into their own party.
