NASA uploads hundreds of historic experimental flight videos to YouTube

Fans of experimental aircraft from the 20th century are in for a treat. NASA's Armstrong Flight Research Center has begun uploading its entire historical archive to YouTube, making hundreds of videos highlighting different test flights and strange planes from the past 70 years easily accessible.

The videos date back to 1946 when the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics started flight tests in California's Mojave Desert. One of the earliest videos published so far shows the infamous Bell X-1 undergoing test flights in 1947. That plane was the first aircraft to break the "sound barrier" with the legendary Captain Chuck Yeager at the controls.

Washington D.C. Is Just A Gigantic Money Eating Machine (Video)

In the following video, Right Wing News reviews Michael Snyder’s assessment of just how bad the money situation is right now in Washington DC, using supporting links that include articles that discuss how the largest generation in history is heading into their golden years right now, and many of them need the market to yield 400% returns in some instances just for their pensions to stay solvent.

Then, there’s the 13+ million teenagers across America who have admitted to exchanging sexual acts just to eat during the Obama years. Couple all that with 102 million currently unemployed Americans, and 9,000 of the country’s largest retailers going out of business before year end, and it should be a wakeup call to anyone with a family to begin making preparations for an inevitable collapse.

‘We the People’ Are the Walking Dead of the American Police State (Video)

In the following article, John Whitehead of The Rutherford Institute hypothesizes that the reason Americans like AMC’s “apocalyptic drama “The Walking Dead” so much, is because it lets Americans face the end of the world once a week, only they get to live.” Slowly, Whitehead advises the reader that all is not as it seems in America.

Whitehead explains how anyone who has been paying attention knows that it will not take much for the government—i.e., the military—to lock down the nation in the event of a national disaster, perhaps less.The fact that the government has been relentlessly monitoring our communications, tracking our movements, criminalizing our every action, treating us like suspects, and stripping us of our means of defense, has not been for our protection at all, but rather its been more of an ambush, and it is being carried out in plain sight.

Senate Committee Approves Medical Marijuana for Veterans

The leading lawmaking brass of the United States government is making a push to ensure that doctors employed with the Department of Veterans Affairs can finally write medical marijuana recommendations for those patients living in states with dispensary programs.

Earlier last week, the Senate Appropriations Committee put its seal of approval on an amendment that would—for the first time ever—make medical marijuana access for veterans a part of the Military Construction, Veterans Affairs and Related Agencies Appropriations Bill.

The rider, which was introduced by Senators Steve Daines of Montana and Senator Jeff Merkley of Oregon, would “prohibit the use of funds appropriated or other-wise made available under this Act to interfere with the ability of veterans to participate in medicinal marijuana programs approved by States or deny services to such veterans.”

The Cannabis Industry Apocalypse

Here is the plan.Sessions plans to seize the assets of the big Cannabis companies and use it to bust more people.

Another important clue to their plans comes from a recent DOJ announcement that the DOJ will no longer be donating part of the proceeds that it receives from civil asset forfeitures to a variety of non-profit groups but will instead be keeping all the proceeds for itself to be used for increased staffing and greater enforcement.

In order to address the lack of budget necessary to start large scale enforcement, the Christie Plan lays out the following actions:

Issue Subpoenas to the twenty-nine states that have legalized cannabis, in any form, and demand their entire set of licensing records, for growers, dispensers, doctors, and users.
Use conventional DOJ budgets to hire new DOJ staff to fight the states that refuse to turn over their licensing records. The DOJ will sue each state, in order or revenue, for compliance.

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

Catherine Austin Fitts just published documentation of Department of Defense (DOD) official audit reports from 1998 that acknowledge “losing track” of $6.5 trillion, along with Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) admission of “losing” over $100 billion. This is euphemistically termed “unaccounted,” and literally means that DOD agrees they received these funds, agrees the funds are gone, and then claims to not have records of where the money went.

Taking antidepressants in pregnancy may raise risk of an autistic child, study suggests

Mothers who took antidepressants during pregnancy may be putting their children at risk of autism, a new study suggests.

Researchers at the University of Bristol found that the children of women who took pills in pregnancy were 41 per cent more likely to be autistic.

However the absolute risk is still small, rising from 2.9 in 100 children to 4.1.

Up to eight per cent of pregnant women are prescribed antidepressants during their pregnancy in Britain, and there are around 700,000 births a year.

More than 40,000 civilians were killed in the devastating battle to retake Mosul from Isis, according to intelligence reports revealed exclusively to The Independent – a death toll far higher than previous estimates.

Residents of the besieged city were killed by Iraqi ground forces attempting to force out militants, as well as by air strikes and Isis fighters, according to Kurdish intelligence services.

Hoshyar Zebari, until recently a senior minister in Baghdad, told The Independent that many bodies “are still buried under the rubble”. “The level of human suffering is immense,” he said.

HS2 has already cost us £2.3bn (without any tracks being laid!) Spiralling cost of the project revealed as accounts are slipped out

The annual report showed that the company established by the government to build the railway spent £500million in the year to March 31 - up almost 30 per cent from £352.9million the year before. It takes the total amount spent by HS2 so far to more than £1.9billion since 2009.

Separate accounts published by the Department for Transport yesterday also showed it has spent another £366million on HS2. The bulk of this was on compensating individuals and businesses who own property and land near the planned line.

This takes the total spent on the project to just under £2.3billion. It comes amid fresh warnings that the project could end up costing more than £100billion.

EU's Article 7 ULTIMATUM to Poland: We'll strip you of your voting rights if reforms go on

THE European Union is threatening to punish Poland and suspend its rights in a row over major reforms clashing with EU rules.

Brussels has given Warsaw a week to halt judicial reforms it said would put courts under direct government control, or face punishment for undermining democracy.

Hitting back Poland said it could take its own action at Europe's highest court if any EU case was initiated.

Last week, the Polish parliament adopted a new law which would allow them to choose the successors of 15 judges of the National Council of the Judiciary (KRS).

As a result the European Commission may decide there has been a major break from the EU’s fundamental values and could block Poland’s voting rights.

CHILDREN AMONG CIVILIAN DEAD IN LATEST US-BACKED SAUDI COALITION AIRSTRIKE IN YEMEN

The United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) on Wednesday reported that an airstrike carried out by the U.S.-backed Saudi-led coalition in Yemen killed 20 civilians—including women and children—who were fleeing violence in their home province.

"The people of Yemen are being subjected to deprivation, disease, and death as the world watches."
—Stephen O'Brien, United Nations

"The incident was reported on Tuesday afternoon and the number of civilian casualties are still being verified with initial reports pointing to at least 20 deaths," the agency said in statement. "Most of those killed are believed to be from the same family. Injuries have also been reported with a number also taken to nearby hospitals for treatment."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These are all war crimes, which which, apparently, the US and Saudi civilian and military leadership are quite morally comfortable.

I am profoundly alarmed to be a citizen of a country colluding in Saudi Arabia's horrific war crimes in Yemen; if Mike and I had the opportunity to become citizens of a civilised country which just doesn't do this, I would be delighted.

We are, unfortunately, both too old and too broke to make it happen.

Artificial sweeteners linked with weight gain, little health benefit

The scientists took a comprehensive look at more than 11,000 studies and found that, for overweight individuals or those with high blood pressure (hypertension) or diabetes, the benefits of consuming zero-calorie, "non-nutritive sweeteners" were modest to nil. For other people, there was an increased risk of weight gain, type 2 diabetes, hypertension, stroke and heart disease.

"Overall, the evidence does not support the intended purpose of weight loss and suggests that there might be adverse effects in the long term," said Meghan Azad, lead author of the review and an assistant professor at the University of Manitoba.

UK gets first publicly available dedicated cannabis research facility

Cannabinoid biotechnology company MediPen is launching its own dedicated 1,800ft sq marijuana research facility this summer, which will also provide a platform for anyone looking to utilise its facilities for the purposes of driving innovation around the use of medicinal cannabis.

The company, which has had big success selling non-psychoactive CBD vaporisers that users claim to have a long list of medicinal benefits, is currently in the process of securing a license from the Home Office to import and work with controlled compounds found in cannabis so it can study the plant in greater detail.

These include ?9-Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which will be studied in the laboratory with regard to cancer patients and with the aim of minimising the negative impact of existing chemotherapy-based treatments such as nausea and vomiting through its antiemetic properties, along with attempting to suppress metastasis through inhibiting the proliferation of cancer cells.

The ruling came in the case of Christina Barbuto, a former employee of Advantage Sales and Marketing, who said she was fired because she tested positive for marijuana, despite the fact that she was legally allowed to use the drug under state law. Barbuto was prescribed cannabis by her doctor to help with complications caused by Crohn’s disease...

THE CRIMINALIZATION OF political speech and activism against Israel has become one of the gravest threats to free speech in the west. In France, activists have been arrested and prosecuted for wearing t-shirts advocating a boycott of Israel. The U.K. has enacted a series of measures designed to outlaw such activism. In the U.S., governors compete with one another over who can implement the most extreme regulations to bar businesses from participating in any boycotts aimed even at Israeli settlements, which the world regards as illegal. On U.S. campuses, punishment of pro-Palestinian students for expressing criticisms of Israel is so commonplace that the Center for Constitutional Rights refers to it as “the Palestine Exception” to free speech.

Netanyahu attack on EU policy towards Israel caught on microphone

Israel’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, has launched a withering attack on the European Union at a closed-door meeting of eastern European leaders in Budapest, saying the political grouping would wither and die if it did not change its policy towards Israel.

The remarks, caught on an open microphone, underlined Netanyahu’s often barely disguised contempt for the European political union, which has criticised Israel – and his government in particular – over issues including Jewish settlement building in the occupied Palestinian territories and the peace process.

Russia Unveils The Future Of Warfare, And It’s A “Fully Automated Combat Module” That Can Identify Targets On Its Own

For decades the US military has been on the cutting edge of aerial warfare, especially when it comes to drones. Our military has thousands of UAVs which have become ubiquitous in every American war since 9/11. However, they’ve proven to be a mixed bag. They have certainly given our soldiers an edge on the battlefield, but they’ve also killed thousands of civilians, which in turn has motivated countless individuals to take up arms against us. Regardless, there’s no doubt that drones are here to stay, and will be a common sight on the battlefield well into the future.

Pentagon Furious After Turkey Leaks U.S. Base Locations In Syria: "Hard Not To See This As A F-You"

So much for NATO-alliance members working for the common good.

In a move that has angered the U.S. for obvious reason, Turkey’s state-run news agency Anadolu Agency has leaked the precise locations of U.S. bases in northern Syria. The move - which exposes the exact locations of American soldiers on the front lines in the war-torn nation - has sent the ongoing feud between the two NATO allies to new lows. As Bloomberg details, in reports published in both Turkish and English on Tuesday, Anadolu provided detailed information about 10 U.S. bases in northern Syria, including troop counts and a map of the U.S. force presence in the Turkish version.

FLASHBACK - McCain and the POW Cover-Up

John McCain, who has risen to political prominence on his image as a Vietnam POW war hero, has, inexplicably, worked very hard to hide from the public stunning information about American prisoners in Vietnam who, unlike him, didn’t return home. Throughout his Senate career, McCain has quietly sponsored and pushed into federal law a set of prohibitions that keep the most revealing information about these men buried as classified documents. Thus the war hero who people would logically imagine as a determined crusader for the interests of POWs and their families became instead the strange champion of hiding the evidence and closing the books.

Royal Privilege? Princess Eugenie Given University Place Despite Low Grades, Claims Lecturer

The Queen’s granddaughter, Princess Eugenie, was offered a place at Newcastle University thanks to her royal status rather than her academic abilities, it has been claimed.

The princess applied for a BA in English literature at Newcastle in 2009, but was rejected as her application was deemed “not good enough.”

One of the world’s most popular tech companies just lost another $2 billion…

Last night Netflix executives announced that a record 104 million people worldwide now subscribe to its service.

This number handily beat what analysts were expecting, and the stock SURGED nearly 9% to an all-time high. Netflix is now trading at more than 200 times earnings.

Look, I like Netflix. House of Cards is entertaining.

But you shouldn’t invest in a business based on its number of customers and quality of content alone.

And if you dive into the company’s numbers, you’ll see immediately that Netflix is hemorrhaging cash.

Does Wall Street Bully or Bribe Prosecutors? Revolving Doors At The DOJ

By Aaron Kesel

The recently published book The Chicken Shit Club by Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist Jesse Eisinger, documents a massive account of corporate greed and impunity. The book alleges that the DOJ has a culture of a revolving door where Wall Street personnel become federal agents, even prosecutors, who then betray the public’s trust and their sworn duty, failing to arrest people involved in massive financial schemes...

Cutting emissions isn't enough: We must remove CO2 from the atmosphere as soon as possible to avoid extreme climate change, warn scientists

Asked to assess the world's current progress in fighting climate change, Professor Hansen, now at Columbia University, New York, told the Independent the 's*** is hitting the fan'.

'Continued high fossil fuel emissions unarguably sentences young people to either a massive, implausible clean-up or growing deleterious climate impacts or both,' the researchers said.

'We conclude that the world has already overshot appropriate targets for greenhouse gas amount and global temperature, and we thus infer an urgent need for rapid phasedown of fossil fuel emissions [and] actions that draw down atmospheric carbon dioxide.'

Seth Rich: What Happened to the Surveillance Footage of FBI Vehicle Break-in?

The Washington Metropolitan D.C. Police report published by Infowars.com on Tuesday revealed an FBI cover-up in the Seth Rich murder that appears to extend beyond changing the time officially reported for break-in and weapons theft of an FBI vehicle to a time before Seth Rich was killed, to also include a suppression of the surveillance film that apparently exists on one or both of these incidents that occurred in close vicinity in Northeast (NE) Washington, D.C., in the early hours of July 10, 2016.

Mic blunder: Netanyahu ‘admits Israel carried out dozens of strikes on Hezbollah convoys’

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has admitted that Israel carried out dozens of attacks against Hezbollah arms convoys in Syria, oblivious to the fact that his remarks were being picked up by a live mic and relayed to reporters, Haaretz reported.

"We blocked the border not only in Egypt but in the Golan Heights," Netanyahu reportedly said during a closed session with the premiers of Hungary, the Czech Republic, Poland and Slovakia in Budapest on Wednesday.

"We built the wall because there was a problem with ISIS [Islamic State/IS] and Iran trying to build a terror front there. I told [Russian President] Putin, when we see them [Iran/IS] transferring weapons to Hezbollah, we will hurt them. We did it dozens of times," he said, as quoted by Haaretz.

Black Lives Matter cost University of Missouri millions

College campuses have long been ruled by big government-loving socialists.

When Donald Trump announced his candidacy, these institutions became the epicenter of anti-Trump protests.
But now, one major university is facing the consequences, and it comes with a hefty price tag.
The University of Missouri made national headlines in 2015 when the campus erupted in Black Lives Matter protests.

Now, reports show that freshman enrollment dropped 23% from 2015 to 2016.

It just dropped another 16% for the coming 2017 fall term and overall enrollment at the Columbia campus is at its lowest in nearly a decade.

Some reports estimate the drop in enrollment could cost the school as much as $14.5 million.

The Kansas City Star reports:

The University of Missouri expects to cut 400 positions, possibly including nearly 100 layoffs, to manage significant losses in state revenue and tuition dollars.

FLASHBACK 2015 - Unbeknownst to Clinton, IT firm had emails stored on cloud; now in FBI’s hands

A Connecticut company, which backed up Hillary Clinton‘s emails at the request of a Colorado firm, apparently surprised her aides by storing the emails on a “cloud” storage system designed to optimize data recovery.

The firm, Datto Inc., said Wednesday that it turned over the contents of its storage to the FBI on Tuesday.

A Republican Senate committee chairman, Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson, also has asked the firm to provide the committee copies of any data from Clinton’s account still in its possession.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently the FBI, under Comey, ignored this request.

Forced to work until you are 68! State pension age rise brought forward SEVEN years

MILLIONS of Britons face a longer wait to retire, as the state pension age will rises sooner than previously outlined, under plans today unveiled by the Government.

The official retirement age is now due to rise to 68 by 2039, impacting around 7million people in their thirties and fourties, the new Secretary of State for Work and Pensions David Gauke revealed.

The changes are to affect everyone born between 6 April 1970 and 5 April 1978, and brings forward the state pension age rise by seven years.

Mr Gauke blamed increasing life expectancy for the sooner than expected rise, as he accepted a review by John Cridland that proposed pushing back retirement for millions.

The pension age for women is already being pushed back in line with men to reach 65 by November 2018 and 66 by 2020.

CoinDash crowdfunding hack further dents trust in crypto-trading world

More than $7m was stolen by hackers on Monday from folks investing in a cryptocurrency startup.

Israel-based CoinDash – which bills itself as an "an operating system" for "interacting, handling and trading crypto assets" – launched what's called an initial coin offering. This is a process in which people buy virtual tokens from a fledgling biz, such as CoinDash. These tokens are vital to whatever service the company is offering. As the startup grows, these tokens are supposed to increase in value. Buying the tokens early is akin to buying shares during a normal business's IPO. It's a way of crowdfunding investment.

Well, on Monday, $7m of that investment, all in the Ethereum cyber-currency, went not to CoinDash in exchange of tokens, but to hackers, it's claimed. Security and financial technology experts voiced concerns that this latest online heist only serves to undermine confidence in digital currency trading platforms.

Maxine Waters' Contributions Collapse As Her "Resist 45" Efforts Fail To Inspire

Maxine Waters, the Democratic Representative from the progressive paradise of California, has been an active participant in the "Resist 45" movement. She has frequently appeared on political talk shows to call for President Trump's impeachment for, among other things, his clearly 'bigoted' travel ban (which has since been upheld by the Supreme Court) and his support of Russian President Vladimir Putin...even as Putin continued his invasion of 'Korea' (no, that's not a typo...it's an actual quote).

"We Are Ready To Retaliate" Russia Warns After "Diplomatic Row" Ends Without A Deal

Shortly after CNN reported late on Monday that according to Russian deputy foreign minister Rybakov, the Russian government was "almost" at a deal on getting back property seized by the US...

... the Russian rejected the report, instead saying that the U.S. must return the seized properties after diplomatic talks with the U.S. in Washington ended without a deal, with the Russian Foreign Ministry saying that Moscow reserved the right to take "retaliatory measures" against the United States. The ongoing "diplomatic row" as Reuters puts it regards the December 2016 seizure by Barack Obama of two Russian diplomatic compounds and the expulsion of 35 Russian diplomats over what he said was their involvement in hacking the 2016 U.S. presidential election campaign.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Like the Earth-centered universe, "Russia hacked the election" has become the prime article of faith around which all future discussion will be framed.

Why Smallpox Will Make A Comeback: Canadian Researchers Spend Only $100,000 To Reconstitute Extinct Virus

The Eradication of smallpox was arguably one of the greatest medical achievements of the modern era. A disease which killed at least 300 million people in the 20th century alone, was snuffed out after decades of hard work by scientists and doctors, and after over a billion dollars (adjusted for inflation) was spent on vaccination campaigns.

Unfortunately, this achievement could be easily undone with modern technology, and at a tiny fraction of what it initially cost to eradicate smallpox. Last week it was revealed that a team of Canadian researchers managed to synthesize an extinct strain of smallpox, by piecing together several mail order samples.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why?

I guess smallpox vaccine sales were slow!

U.S. Postal Service Employees Broke Law Supporting Hillary Clinton

When Democrats aren’t importing foreign ringers to boost their voting rolls, they’re using government employees to do the same.

The Office of Special Counsel just released a report suggesting that the U.S. Postal Service union broke the law by having employees do work on behalf of the Clinton campaign in 2016. Normally, federal employees are allowed to engage in political activism while on leave. But the union that governs USPS employees showed a bias toward Clinton during last year’s heated campaign.

New Linux Malware Exploits SambaCry Flaw to Silently Backdoor NAS Devices

Remember SambaCry?

Almost two months ago, we reported about a 7-year-old critical remote code execution vulnerability in Samba networking software, allowing a hacker to remotely take full control of a vulnerable Linux and Unix machines.

We dubbed the vulnerability as SambaCry, because of its similarities to the Windows SMB vulnerability exploited by the WannaCry ransomware that wreaked havoc across the world over two months ago.

Despite being patched in late May, the vulnerability is currently being leveraged by a new piece of malware to target the Internet of Things (IoT) devices, particularly Network Attached Storage (NAS) appliances, researchers at Trend Micro warned.
