Iran and Saudi Arabia to lower oil prices

The Iranian state company National Iranian Oil Co. (NIOC) has set price for Iranian Light oil at a premium of 25 cents a barrel, that is 15 cents more than the Saudi Arab Light. This benchmark is to be the lowest price since December 2012.
Tehran intents to lower prices on oil shipments to Asia in October. Beside that, the Saudi Arabian state oil company Saudi Arabian Oil Co. (Aramco) also reduced official premium for Arab Light oil 1 cent a barrel for the Asian market, while regional consumers of Medium oil will get $1.3 discount per barrel. Iran also awaits the lifting of international sanctions, that was guaranteed with signing the nuclear deal. The UN Security Council, the US, and the EU assured Iran to lift economic sanctions, in case Iran implements terms of the deal. As Pravda.Ru reported, Iran hopes to return to the global energy market, and regain its niche.

Finland imposes new “solidarity tax” to save on migrants

The centre-right Finnish government has offered today to increase taxes.
Such measures are necessary to cover expenses on migrants, that flow into the country. The increase is to be subjected to those with higher incomes.
Thus, the Finnish Parliament tries to escape accusations that migrants deprive the poor and middle class of their money.
Finance minister Alexander Stubb claimed that citizens of Finland earning over €72,300 would have to pay a so-called "solidarity tax" for 2 years.
However, even despite these measures the Finnish budget deficit in 2016 is to make up €5 billion, analysts say.

Peace had a short run: Seoul renews military operations on North Korean border

Despite reached armistice agreements, South Korea intents to renew military operations on the border of demilitarized zone with the North. The South Korean Ministry of Defence explained this fact with more frequent provocations from the DPRK. "South Korea plans to renew its military posture by taking into account the North's land-mine provocations and the outcome of joint military drills between Seoul and Washington. In particular, the South plans to draw up measures to conduct aggressive military operations at the DMZ," the Ministry reported.

Moldova’s ex-president blames EU for current crisis in his country

Moldova’s ex-president Vladimir Voronin, who is the leader of the opposition Communist Party and who stood at the helm of the country from 2001 through to 2009, has blamed the EU for the crisis that brought about mass protests in Chisinau.
"In front of everyone’s eye and with an obvious share of involvement of your permanent mission, as well as many embassies of the EU member-states and other international organizations, an unprecedented corrupt mafia-based system has taken hold of Moldova," Voronin said in an open letter to the President of the Council of Europe Thorbjorn Jagland. "In essence, this system is state power here today."

Poroshenko bans Russian nationals and companies to own media outlets in Ukraine

From now on, legal entities and individuals registered in offshore zones; persons without citizenship; legal entities and natural persons who are residents of a country branded to be an aggressor or an occupier as well as legal entities in which they are shareholders will be forbidden to create media outlets; participate in the work of TV and radio companies and be providers of programs.
"Media outlets will now be obliged to publish information about their owners at official websites and hand it over to the National Television and Radio Broadcasting Council," Viktoria Sumar, the head of Rada’s Committee for Freedom of Speech and Information Policy, said. The law was adopted as part of an action plan to implement Ukraine’s commitments deriving from its membership of the European Union, the explanatory note to the law said.

Russian tank Armata beats foreign rivals in combat protection — developer

"Armata is far better than its best foreign analogs due to integrated protection systems," said the expert at the Tractor Plants subsidiary. "No foreign tank fully embodies layered protection principles. Russia's does."
Armata also uses systems to disrupt guidance of incoming projectiles and active protection systems to detect and destroy closing munitions before they strike the main armour, Alexeyev told reporters.
Russia develops world’s most maneuverable infantry combat vehicle http://tass.ru/en/defense/820113 An advanced version of the Russian infantry combat vehicle BMP-3, designated as Dragun, has become the most maneuverable in the world.

"This issue is hardly relevant for Russia," presidential press-secretary Dmitry Peskov said. "Of course, we had anticipated certain costs (material and other) these processes will entail. To a large extent these costs will be borne by the countries that at a certain point contributed to bringing about the catastrophic situation in some Maghreb states and in the Middle East," Peskov said. He avoided mentioning the countries he had in mind.

Lawmaker: Russia will not abandon Syria after Ukraine closes airspace

Earlier in the day Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said that Kiev had tightened control of the traffic of Russian planes to Syria. "The airspace over Ukraine is now closed, and the airspace over international waters is under special control," he said.
"Russia has always managed to devise an alternative solution. It has never abandoned its friends. Ukraine may betray others. Russia will go ahead with its support for Syria and its people," Komoyedov said. Asked if Kiev’s latest actions required some kind of response from Russia, Komoyedov replied it was no use noticing "every sneeze."

And then came the rains: Thousands of migrants battle with riot police in Macedonian quagmire after storms batter eastern Europe

Torrential rain has turned the Macedonian border into a sea of mud – the latest trial facing migrants on the 1,000-mile trek into Europe.

At least 7,000 people, including many parents lugging young children, braved downpours and scuffles with police to cross Greece's northern border into Macedonia.

Greek border police said it as the largest single wave of refugees they had seen so far.

Despite wrapping themselves up in garbage bags of every kind, the migrants were soaked to the skin, their trainers caked with mud and hats dripping with rain.

Sweden’s admission to NATO would require response from Russia — Russian Foreign Ministry

If Sweden joins NATO, the situation would demand response steps from the Russian side, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said Thursday.
"We have repeatedly said that the choice of the national defense and security strategy is an internal and sovereign affair of each state. But we still consider the policy of Sweden’s non-participation in military blocs as an important factor of ensuring stability in northern Europe," the diplomat said.
"Sweden’s admission to NATO would have military-political and foreign policy consequences that would require necessary response steps from the Russian side," Zakharova underscored.

Refugees out of Ukraine: Migrants that they don't want to see

But Russia welcomes refugees. Without cameras, without staging, because it must respect the real pain of those fleeing, fleeing the bombs dropped by the army of their own country.
Real refugees fleeing war are there before our eyes. These are the more than two million Ukrainians the Russians are assisting and the millions of Syrians put under the protection of the Syrian government in secure areas by the army. And when the Russians (them again!) try to send humanitarian cargo to them, Washington seeks to block it by ordering their lackeys to close their airspace...

Russia 'Does Not Have Time for Cold Wars', Other Issues Should Be Solved

On Thursday, Zakharova held a live chat conversation on BBC. Within an hour and a half, she managed to answer 50-60 questions covering various topics.
"That would be a disaster. There are a number of truly important global issues which must be resolved. They are terrorism, epidemics, refugees, and so on. We don’t have time for Cold Wars," she pointed out.
"What is happening today is forcefully imposed rivalry and Russophobia. But blame politicians for that, not ordinary people. Why do they do it? It looks like there are a lot of reasons. And the main reason is stupidity," Zakharova said.
Speaking on the Ukrainian crisis, the spokeswoman assumed that it is a result of the destructive policy by those who seized power in Kiev in 2014.

“Fed Risks Triggering Panic and Turmoil”: World Bank Warns Against Raising Rates

Many experts say they could, and well, things aren’t so simple after all.

The US Federal Reserve risks triggering “panic and turmoil” in emerging markets if it opts to raise rates at its September meeting and should hold fire until the global economy is on a surer footing, the World Bank’s chief economist has warned.

Famous French ‘Taxi Driver’ Samy Naceri Also Wants Russian Passport?

Samy Naceri, a French actor known for his roles in the Taxi movie franchise, is the next celebrity in line to apply for Russian citizenship, TV Channel Zvezda said. Naceri is currently in St. Petersburg, where he's working on the new movie Rock & Road, made by a Russian director.
The actor said he'd happily get a Russian passport, if he was offered one.
"If famous people are so fascinated by your country that they want to have a Russian passport, there is nothing wrong with that. It tells about their desire to get to know your country more," Naceri told a Zvezda correspondent.
Recently, several celebrities have said they were interested in getting Russian citizenship. Rick Genest, better known as Zombie Boy, who has the majority of his body covered in tattoos, making him look like a living skeleton, the lead singer of Limp Bizkit Fred Durst and former boxer Roy Jones Jr. were all interested in becoming Russian citizens.

14th Anniversary of 9/11: Global Interactive Broadcast with Kevin Ryan, Cynthia McKinney, James Corbett and more

As the 14th anniversary of the events of September 11, 2001, approaches, a group of notable researchers will be presenting important information on Friday and Saturday, September 11th and 12th, 2015, about 9/11 and its relation to recent "terrorist" events in North America, and what the 9/11 Commission did not tell us.

FLASHBACK - SUPPRESSED DETAILS OF CRIMINAL INSIDER TRADING LEAD DIRECTLY INTO THE CIA'S HIGHEST RANKS

Although uniformly ignored by the mainstream U.S. media, there is abundant and clear evidence that a number of transactions in financial markets indicated specific (criminal) foreknowledge of the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. In the case of at least one of these trades -- which has left a $2.5 million prize unclaimed -- the firm used to place the "put options" on United Airlines stock was, until 1998, managed by the man who is now in the number three Executive Director position at the Central Intelligence Agency. Until 1997 A.B. "Buzzy" Krongard had been Chairman of the investment bank A.B. Brown. A.B. Brown was acquired by Banker's Trust in 1997. Krongard then became, as part of the merger, Vice Chairman of Banker's Trust-AB Brown, one of 20 major U.S. banks named by Senator Carl Levin this year as being connected to money laundering. Krongard's last position at Banker's Trust (BT) was to oversee "private client relations".

Global Leaders Using Refugee Plight to Push Military Escalation

Speaking in the Australian capital of Canberra on Wednesday, Abbott coupled an announcement that the country will admit an additional 12,000 people fleeing conflict in the Middle East with the declaration that the nation will extend its military actions beyond Iraq by joining in the bombing campaign in eastern Syria this week. The move comes despite questions over the Abbott administration’s legal footing for the air strikes.

Meanwhile, British Prime Minister David Cameron is also calling for a “hard military force” to remove President Bashar al Assad in Syria. “Assad has to go, [ISIS] has to go and some of that will require not just spending money, not just aid, not just diplomacy, but it will on occasion require hard military force,” he declared Wednesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In the minds of these men, collectively, the "final solution" to the Syrian "problem" is more bombings, to create more dead Syrians and fewer refugees.

This approach is so cynically immoral, that I do not know where to start.

And there is an issue here that none of these men want to look at, and that is the Russian presence in Syria, with military advisers on the ground, and which the Russians have not kept secret.

Are all of these men, including President Obama, willing to risk war with Russia to effect regime change in Syria?!?

One would hope that some sanity would prevail; however, at least in American geopolitics, sanity has not had an ongoing relationship with US foreign policy in quite some time now.

And unfortunately, just because some action would be the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid thing for the US government to do us utterly no guarantee that that will not do it.

And that is what keeps me up nights; contemplating the war-centric nature of American foreign policy, and wondering what kind of completely boneheaded move this Administration will stumble into next, in attempting to save a completely failed foreign policy in Syria.

WTC-7: Visible and Audible Evidence of Explosions

It was fairly obvious to most people that the Twin Towers were demolished with explosives on the morning of 9-11. Then, at about 5:20 p.m. in the afternoon, a third tower - one block away from WTC 1 - fell straight into its footprint. The evidence that this tower, the 47-story WTC 7 - owned and built by Larry Silverstein - was demolished with explosives is quite obvious. The following 47-second video clearly shows explosions going off seconds before the building fell.

David Chandler's analysis of the sounds heard in the background reveals a series of nine explosions, just as we hear in the two videos presented below.

Microsoft case: DoJ says it can demand every email from any US-based provider

The United States government has the right to demand the emails of anyone in the world from any email provider headquartered within US borders, Department of Justice (DoJ) lawyers told a federal appeals court on Wednesday.

The case being heard in the second circuit court of appeals is between the US and Microsoft and concerns a search warrant that the government argues should compel Microsoft to retrieve emails held on a Hotmail server in Ireland.

Microsoft contends that the DoJ has exceeded its authority with potentially dangerous consequences. Organizations including Apple, the government of Ireland, Fox News, NPR and the Guardian have filed amicus briefs with the court, arguing the case could set a precedent for governments around the world to seize information held in the cloud. Judges have ruled against the tech company twice.

GOP ‘Revolt’ Delays Iran Deal Vote

With the Senate now having enough votes to block a resolution against the P5+1 nuclear deal with Iran, the Republican leadership was seeking a consolation prize with a vote in the House, even though without the Senate version it is meaningless. The House vote was announced for 9/11, but now appears to be indefinitely postponed in the face of right-wing opposition.

The issue seems to stem from an “uprising” in the Freedom Caucus, which is demanding a whole set of bills against the deal, including one from Rep. Peter Roskam (R – IL) complaining that the White House didn’t submit the terms of any side deals between Iran and the IAEA, meaning that the review process wasn’t legally met.

Hillary Clinton Promises A More Muscular Foreign Policy As President

In the lead-up to the 2008 presidential election, Hillary Clinton’s vote to authorize the Iraq War six years before haunted her on the campaign trail. It put her in stark contrast with then-Senator Barack Obama, who touted his foresight in opposing the ill-fated war. But if Clinton was scarred by the perception that her foreign policy agenda is too hawkish for the Democratic Party, she showed no signs of it Wednesday morning in a speech detailing her plan to counter Iran after the implementation of the nuclear deal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, not enough people have been displaced, maimed for life, or died in the US government's crushing push for regime change in countries it does not like, and whose assets the US wants to expropriate, to satiate the bloodlust of the former Secretary of State.

And regarding Israel's security, I would like to politely remind Secretary Clinton that Israel is a fully-armed nuclear nation, with one of the finest military in the world, courtesy of American tax dollars.

Iran's leadership may be many things, but one thing that they are not is stupid.

They understand that any attack against Israel would bring the full deathblow counter strike by Israel and the US against it, turning the country of Iran into a molten sea of glass.

Forgive me, but I do not believe that this is the outcome the Iranian leadership wants for their families, or for the Iranian people.

And lastly, I would like to mention to Secretary Clinton that Americans are war-weary, and war-sceptical. They have seen the debacles that have been Libya (culminating in Benghazi); Afghanistan; Iraq; Somalia; Syria; and Yemen.

They want no more of this, thank you very much; they have been lied into quite enough military misadventures, and will not tolerate being lied into more.

OF course, it is always easy to shill for more wars and more interventions, when you know for a moral certainty, that it will never be your kid out on that battlefield, being maimed or killed, ultimately for private corporate profit.

And people who benefit financially from these wars have absolutely no moral qualms about trying to "sell" them to create more profit for themselves.

I would observe that they have the morals of a trout; but that would be insulting all trout, everywhere!!

Drug Smugglers Go Free as US Air Strike Kills 11 Police Officers who Tracked Them, Officials Say

Afghan officials reported this Sunday that a US airstrike killed 11 counter-narcotics police officers that were working for the government of Afghanistan to track down drug smugglers in the region. This attack is the deadliest recorded occurrence of friendly-fire throughout the whole course of the war in Afghanistan.

According to The Guardian;

A US military spokesman, Colonel Brian Tribus, denied that Nato or US forces had conducted any strikes in Helmand on 6 September, but said they had launched an air raid that day in Maiwand district of neighbouring Kandahar province.

However, the area where Afghan officials claim the attack took place is a sparsely populated desert area called Rigestan, or Dasht-e Rigi, a barren plateau without clear borders that stretches across Helmand and Kandahar.

Tribus said in a statement that the airstrike was intended “to eliminate threats to the force.”

More than 50 intelligence analysts working out of the U.S. military's Central Command have formally complained that their reports on ISIS and al Qaeda’s branch in Syria were being inappropriately altered by senior officials, The Daily Beast has learned.

The complaints spurred the Pentagon’s inspector general to open an investigation into the alleged manipulation of intelligence. The fact that so many people complained suggests there are deep-rooted, systemic problems in how the U.S. military command charged with the war against the self-proclaimed Islamic State assesses intelligence.

“The cancer was within the senior level of the intelligence command,” one defense official said.

More and more NYPD misconduct is being caught on video — making substantiating complaints a cakewalk for the city’s Civilian Complaint Review Board, the agency’s head said Monday.

Houston cops shoot unarmed black patient in hospital — and then charge him with assault

Alan Pean is a 26-year-old biology student with no criminal record or history of violence. But on August 27th, he was shot in the chest by an off-duty Houston police officer working as a security guard at the St. Joseph Medical Center. The police are claiming that Alan became combative and that they followed standard operating procedure.

But the family and medical professionals are disturbed by the handling of Alan’s case and what looks like a failure on many levels.

Alan had driven himself to the hospital the night of August 26, during an acute mental health crisis.When he got there, he crashed his car and was treated for those injuries.

Alan’s father, himself a physician, begged the hospital to get his son a psychiatric evaluation given that Alan had suffered a similar episode in 2009. But the hospital decided he was ready to be discharged, clearing him a mere minutes before the shooting.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are multiple failures in the handling of this case, both from a standpoint of the hospital, and the police.

The hospital was negligent in releasing this young man, when they knew he had had a previous mental health crisis, and should have held him for observation. The police should have known also about the previous mental health crisis, but were not told.

You do not respond to a psychiatric crisis with a gun; kindness, appropriate medication, and a sense that someone is looking after you appropriately, when you cannot look out for yourself, can do wonders.

Warren Buffett: Poverty In The U.S. 'Makes No Sense' - "You really shouldn't have an economy with over $50,000 in GDP per person and have lots of people living in poverty who are willing to work."

Warren Buffett doesn't think any Americans should be poor anymore.
In an economy that produces over $54,000 in gross domestic product per capita, the billionaire says, regulators must rein in the fast-widening gap between the poor and the super-rich.

Boehner's future on the line this fall, say conservatives

Conservatives "are waiting to see what happens this month" before deciding whether they will try a third time to oust Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, who they have frequently criticized for failing to champion conservative issues.

Rep. Raul Labrador, R-Idaho, and a group of other conservatives told reporters at a roundtable event on Wednesday that critical legislation this fall could decide Boehner's fate if he ignores their input.

Conservatives tried unsuccessfully to unseat him in 2012 and 2014. They could try again when Congress reconvenes for the 115th session on Jan. 3, 2017.

"I'm really waiting to see what happens this month," Labrador said. "We have a lot of big issues before us."

Hillary Clinton Staffer Pushed to Accept Immunity to Testify on Private Server

Two Senate committee chairmen authored a letter to a former Hillary Clinton aide pushing him to accept limited immunity in order to testify before Congress on the set-up of the former secretary of state’s private server.

First reported by McClatchy, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R., Iowa), chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and Sen. Ron Johnson (R., Wis.), who chairs the Senate Homeland Security Committee, sent the letter to ex-State Department computer staffer Brian Pagliano and his lawyer Friday emphasizing the possibility of an “immunity order.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is not up to Brian Pagliano. The Senators can issue a grant of immunity and subpoena Brian back for more questions. Brian cannot refuse, and under immunity cannot invoke the Fifth Amendment. If he refuses to answer questions he faces contempt of Congress and other legal penalties (although we know the current DOJ won't bring charges). In any event, a refusal to testify even with immunity only reinforces the public perception that there is a cover-up.

Brian, stay out of small planes and suburban DC parks!

Trust me on this!

9/11: Decade of Deception (Full Film NEW 2015)

On the tenth anniversary of the Attacks of September 11th, 2001, expert witnesses gathered at Ryerson University in Toronto, Canada to provide evidence-based research that called into question the official story of 9/11. This was known as The Toronto Hearings on 9/11.

Over a period of four days, these experts in Structural Engineering, Physics, Chemistry, and History gave researched and professional testimony to an international panel of distinguished judges. The panel of judges, in conjunction with the steering committee would go on to publish their final analysis of the evidence provided, which called for a new investigation into the Attacks of September 11th, 2001.

This film is a summary of the strongest evidence given over the four days of hearings.

175 DAYS: TREASURY SAYS DEBT HAS BEEN FROZEN AT $18,112,975,000,000

The portion of the federal debt that is subject to a legal limit set by Congress closed Friday, Sept. 4, at $18,112,975,000,000, according to the latest Daily Treasury Statement, which was published at 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday.

That, according to the Treasury's statements, makes 175 straight days the debt subject to the limit has been frozen at $18,112,975,000,000.

$18,112,975,000,000 is about $25 million below the current legal debt limit of $18,113,000,080,959.35.

On July 30, Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew sent a letter to the leaders of Congress, saying he was extending a “debt issuance suspension period” through October 30.

That means the Treasury believes it can continue for at least the next seven weeks to issue Daily Treasury Statements that show the federal debt subject to the limit beginning and ending each day frozen just below that limit.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, this is codswallop, plain and simple.

Treasury Secretary Lew is completely delusional in thinking "..the Treasury believes it can continue for at least the next seven weeks to issue Daily Treasury Statements that show the federal debt subject to the limit beginning and ending each day frozen just below that limit."

This is purely magical thinking on Secretary Lew's part, and has absolutely no basis in reality whatsoever.

So what the hell, please, happens to the national debt on 31 October (Halloween), which falls on a Saturday?!? Are we in for some kind of a massively unpleasant economic "November Surprise", starting on Monday, November 2nd?!?

Goldman Sachs Beats Another Fraud Rap: Can the Public Ever Get Justice in New York Courts?

Plaintiffs in the case were investors in Hudson Mezzanine Funding 2006-1 and 2006-2, synthetic bets on toxic mortgages which Goldman sold to investors while making multi-billion-dollar bets for its own firm that the deals would fail.

In writing his decision to dismiss the claims by plaintiffs, the Judge actually acknowledged that employees of Goldman Sachs had called what they were selling to their customers “crap” and “junk” in internal emails that were introduced into evidence. Judge Marrero further conceded that Goldman Sachs was aware of deteriorating fundamentals in the subprime mortgage market and needed to “flip” its risk onto the shoulders of its customers. But none of this convinced the Federal Judge – a so-called steward of the public trust – that he had an obligation to let the case proceed to trial and allow citizen jurors make their own determinations in the matter.

GENETIC MODIFICATION OF HUMAN EMBRYOS

I just read about this in, Superintelligence: Paths, Dangers, Strategies by Nick Bostrom and the implications are very wild and potentially terrifying, especially in terms of social engineering.

Via: BBC:

It is “essential” that the genetic modification of human embryos is allowed, says a group of scientists, ethicists and policy experts.

A Hinxton Group report says editing the genetic code of early stage embryos is of “tremendous value” to research.

It adds although GM babies should not be allowed to be born at the moment, it may be “morally acceptable” under some circumstances in the future.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"...“essential” that the genetic modification of human embryos is allowed...", MY ASTROLABE!!

Can you begin to imagine what some power-mad despot could do with technology like this, creating monster soldiers who cannot think, but kill ruthlessly on command?

And when you are tinkering with DNA, you are tinkering with the code of life; this could very easily wind up creating and ELE (extinction level event) if wide-spread experiments on humans wind up badly botched.

State Dept. Appoints ‘Transparency Czar’ After Clinton Email Scandal

They grow like barnacles on the listing, rust-pitted ship of state, products of a hopelessly corrupt bureaucracy that can no longer handle its daily business without violating its own rules. Czars are often dropped as distractions, like a fighter jet ejecting flares to avoid heat-seeking missiles. The appointment of a powerful new position with great fanfare is the ultimate Washington way of pretending to Do Something and mollify an angry public.

And so, there comes unto the State Department a new “transparency czar,” officially to be known as the Transparency Coordinator. The position will be initially filled by Ambassador Janice Jacobs – who, you will not be surprised to learn, donated $2700 to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign less than three months ago.

MEANWHILE, IN HITACHI WAREHOUSES

Say hello to your new artificial intelligence overlord–er, boss.
At Hitachi, the Japanese electronics manufacturer, workers have started to take orders from artificial intelligence programs meant to increase productivity in the workplace.
Hitachi has deployed the AI in an unspecified number of warehouses, where it issues work orders and instructions to employees. The computer analyzes employees’ previous approaches to problems, and if an employee uses a new way to accomplish a job more efficiently, that technique is analyzed and used later on. This idea of kaizen, or constant improvement, is an often-repeated theme in Hitachi’s announcement of the AI system.
Rather than relying on pre programmed instructions like other warehouse software, Hitachi claims that this AI can go off-script, adapting to on-site changes, weather patterns, and shifts in demand.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks like we are going to hit a technological spot, in the very near future, where humans will be irrelevant to order fulfillment in warehouse/distribution environments.

The research, published in the journal Elife, shows that on average H. naledi stood approximately 150cm tall and weighed about 45kg. Its teeth are described as similar to those of the earliest-known members of our genus, such as Homo hanilis, as are most features of the skull. The shoulders, however, are more similar to those of apes.

Their hands meanwhile suggest “tool-using capabilities,” according to Dr. Tracy Kivell of the University of Kent, UK.

Freddie Gray trials to remain in Baltimore, judge rules

The judge in the Freddie Gray case has ruled that the trials of the six police officers charged in his death should remain in Baltimore, Maryland. Defense attorneys had argued their clients couldn’t receive a fair trial in the city.

In a pretrial hearing, Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Barry G. Williams denied the defense motion to move the proceedings to another Maryland jurisdiction, though he said that the court would still need to decide whether an impartial jury can be seated in the city.

“The citizens of Baltimore are not monolithic,” Williams said in his ruling. “They think for themselves.”

The Shocking Email From Monsanto: Why I am submitting a FOIA request

My intuition and common sense knew that this guy HAD to be connected to these corporations in some way, but he kept denying any connection. And I believed he was causing irreparable harm to our healthy food movement because the media believed that he was an unbiased scientist.
Well, NOT ANYMORE.

This week an unprecedented major investigative report was published in the NY Times about how the chemical and food industries work with public university scientists to advance their agendas to the public. Hundreds of emails have now been revealed between University of Florida Professor Dr. Kevin Folta, Monsanto, the biotech front groups, and their PR firm Ketchum after a FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) request was submitted by the nonprofit group U.S. Right To Know.

US NOW HAS OVER 1,400 FOREIGN MILITARY BASES SPREAD OVER 120 COUNTRIES

In an interview about his new book detailing cables published by Wikileaks, Julian Assange makes the following key points:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As a 66 year old woman, I weep to see what this government has become; a rapacious nation, hell-bent on making sure as much destruction as humanly possible happens to the rest of the world to achieve national regimes to our liking, and making sure that the spoils of such wars fall into the hands of major corporations, which support the politicians, overtly and covertly.

And those people, desperately trapped by US-generated wars of aggression, who can never go home again?!? To this government, they have absolutely no humanity whatsoever, and are irrelevant; that is why they are labeled as "collateral damage", in order for those in power not to feel one shred of guilt because of what has been done to these people.

American corporations have become the voracious whores, and the US government, their indulgent madam, making sure that they get the lion's share of profits.

This is a government waging wars against its own citizens,at every level, in terms of the economy, health, surveillance, and eviscerating what little protections are still available through the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

And internationally, when the issues of democracy and human rights "get in the way of doing business" for the US, they are summarily dismissed; despots are supported, and torture is condoned.

Look at what is going on in Yemen and Bahrain, and try to tell me, with a straight face, that this is not so.

Were I in a position to be able to compose a long-form work right now, I am very certain that it would be titled as follows: The United States; a Requiem for a Country I used to know."

Lawsuit seeks answers on how Clinton lawyer got OK to store classified emails

While a number of lawsuits have been filed in federal courts across the nation by aggressive public-interest groups, such as Judicial Watch, Freedom Watch and other non-profits, a new lawsuit demanding that the U.S. State Department turn over information regarding the Hillary Clinton email firestorm was filed on Monday this time by a freelance journalist. Rather than requesting the court to order the release of documents about Clinton's email server, her State Department meeting calendar, or her telephone logs, newsman David Brown is asking for a statement from Obama's diplomats: how did Clinton's private attorney, David Kendall, obtain permission to obtain and retain copies of supposedly classified email -- including top security email -- loaded onto a thumb drive?

Webmaster's Commentary:

Israel re-arrests nuclear whistle-blower over TV interview

The Israeli regime has once again detained nuclear whistle-blower Mordechai Vanunu, claiming that he violated the terms of his release from prison by taking part in a recent interview with a local TV station.

The Thursday development came as the Israeli Channel 2 television broadcaster, which aired the interview with Vanunu on September 4, is battling with the regime’s police who demand the "full, unedited footage of the interview," Israeli media say.

The channel refuses to hand over the material, citing the journalistic principle of protecting sources.

In the lengthy interview on Israeli TV on Friday, Vanunu reportedly explained how he once exposed the existence of Israel’s nuclear arsenal and elaborated on a potential disaster which could emanate from Israel’s notorious Dimona facility.

Nights of Terror Strike Turkey as Far Right Mobs Attack Opposition and Citizens

Turkey has been experiencing what seems to be a repeat of events from the many pogroms and national-lynching campaigns that the country has witnessed several times in the past century. Angry mobs took to streets under the leadership of AKP youth organizations, right after President Erdo?an said, “If a particular party [as I had wanted before the elections] had received 400 deputies in the parliament [out of 550], things would have been completely different,” – referring to the soldiers who were killed in clashes between Turkish Armed Forces and Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) in the east of Turkey. The mobs, led by the leader of AKP Youth Movement and also a member of the parliament, attacked the Hurriyet Daily’s headquarters. The social media troll army and pro-government journalists described the events as the “democratic right to protest the corrupt media” and encouraged people to take to streets.

New York Times exposes academic scientists prostituting themselves out to Monsanto and the biotech industry

File this under the category of "journalism we never thought we'd see." In a New York Times article published over the weekend, writer Eric Lipton covers the outrageous academic fraud taking place across America as university "scientists" prostitute themselves out to the biotech industry.

It's important that we, the pioneers of the New Media news movement, give credit where it's due in the mainstream media. With this story by Lipton, The New York Times has just trumped everybody else in the mainstream media. Sellout papers like The Washington Post -- whose entire editorial board is practically run by Monsanto -- would never dare publish such an investigative story. Somehow, The New York Times has now come to the realization that Big Biotech's academic fraud is too large and shady to keep ignoring.

According to the Ministry of Defence from the beginning of last year, NATO member states have carried out more than 3,200 military personnel and transport of materials through Austria. Austria, which was a neutral country approves transit, usually, only to participate in military exercises and for training purposes.

Pilz doubt that all these transports had just such a purpose. "I assume that it was arming," he said, adding that the route through Austria main routes for the deployment of western forces for the imminent conflict with Russia, the Western states.

Sandy Hook hoax: 6 signs that school was closed before massacre

If the school already was closed, no children or teachers would be there on December 14 to be gunned down by Adam Lanza.

Here’s the evidence supporting the contention that SHES had long been abandoned:

FLASHBACK - A GOVERNMENT THAT LIES

The most expensive purchase most Americans will ever make is their own government. Government costs the average American more than their home, more than their health care, more than their childrens' college education. Yet people who would spend a great deal of time kicking the tires before buying a new car spend disastrously little time checking out the government that sucks so much money out of them over their lifetimes.

Right now, looking under the hood of that expensive item called "government", we see a unified group of men and women who lied to send your children off to a war of conquest. Across this land there are thousands of families waking up to the knowledge that their sons and daughters were crippled and killed in Iraq for reasons other than what they were told.

Globalists Who Created Refugee Crisis Now Exploiting It

The politicians and establishment figures in the United States and European Union demanding that the West accept millions of Middle Eastern refugees are the same globalists that created the tragic situation in the first place by destroying the countries their victims are fleeing from. Libya, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, and beyond all offer plenty of evidence showing that to be the case. The horrific consequences of the globalist establishment's machinations, though — the genocide of Middle Eastern Christians, the emergence of savage terror groups such as the Islamic State (ISIS), the tsunami of refugees right now cascading into Europe, and more — are only just beginning.

Flashback: Rabbi obstructs fraud probe, citing Talmud

A US federal judge is weighing the fate of a Chasidic rabbi who is citing Talmudic law as a justification for his refusal to testify against fellow Jews before a Los Angeles grand jury investigating tax evasion. Moshe Zigelman, who was the executive assistant to Grand Rabbi Naftali Tzi Weisz of the Brooklyn-based Spinka sect of Chasids, received a two-year sentence in 2009 after he pleaded guilty to arranging illegal donations... Zigelman, 64, received a heavier sentence than another defendant because of his reluctance to testify against his fellow Jews.... He said the classic Talmudic prohibition that Zigelman cites is rooted in the notion that Jews should not betray their fellow Jews to an evil government, and its relevance to a more just government is not clear-cut."

Once seen as bulletproof, 11 million+ Ashley Madison passwords already cracked

When the Ashley Madison hackers leaked close to 100 gigabytes' worth of sensitive documents belonging to the online dating service for people cheating on their romantic partners, there seemed to be one saving grace. User passwords were cryptographically protected using bcrypt, an algorithm so slow and computationally demanding it would literally take centuries to crack all 36 million of them.

Now, a crew of hobbyist crackers has uncovered programming errors that make more than 15 million of the Ashley Madison account passcodes orders of magnitude faster to crack. The blunders are so monumental that the researchers have already deciphered more than 11 million of the passwords in the past 10 days. In the next week, they hope to tackle most of the remaining 4 million improperly secured account passcodes, although they cautioned they may fall short of that goal. The breakthrough underscores how a single misstep can undermine an otherwise flawless execution.

BUSH AND OBAMA MAKE PUTIN LOOK GOOD

Big Government toadies can pooh-pooh the existence of a conspiracy by elitists to create a global government (aka a New World Order) all they want to, but that doesn’t change the fact that they are. Over the last several decades, proponents of global government have been quite outspoken about their intention to create a New World Order. In fact, former President George H.W. Bush (NOT so-called “right wing conspiracy nuts”) was the one who popularized the term “New World Order” in modern times.

John McCain 'overjoyed' Israel has nuclear weapons

Republican Senator and former presidential hopeful John McCain said on Tuesday that he was "overjoyed" that Israel possesses nuclear weapons to guard against regional threats.

McCain, who is supporting the rejection of the nuclear deal with Iran penned in July, said that he was happy Israel had "nuclear weapons in light of Iran's aggressive stance".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Iran's aggressive stance? Is McCain on drugs?!?

Since the 1979 Iranian revolution and the downfall of the US Puppet Ruler the Shah, Iran has been an Islamic state. In that interval of time, 1979 to the present, Iran has not invaded anyone. Not once. In fact Iran has not launched a war of aggression against another nation in 200 years. War is not their nature. People of all religions live in peace in Iran, even Jews, who find life so comfortable in Iran they refused an offer by the government of Israel to emigrate!

In the same period of time, Israel, a self-declared Jewish state, attacked Iraq in 1981, bombing the power station at Osirik, claiming it was a clandestine weapons factory. Subsequent examination of the ruins following the 2003 invasion proved Israel had lied. In 1982, Israel invaded Lebanon. This led to the Massacres at Sabra and Shatilla. In February 2003 Israel staged incursions into Gaza and Nablus. In September 2007 Israel bombed Syria, again insisting they were destroying a clandestine weapons laboratory. Again there was no evidence to support Israel's claims. In 2006, Israel attacked Lebanon, killing 1200, mostly civilians, several UN observers, and littering the landscape with land mines on their way out. In February 2008 Israel again raided Gaza, killing over 100. HAMAS agreed to a cease fire and kept it for 6 months until November 4, when Israel again attacked without warning, killing 6 HAMAS members, and launching operation CAST LEAD. 1300 Gazans, mostly civilians, were killed. Israel lost 13 soldiers. Violations of international law included the use of White Phosphorus incendiary bombs against civilians and non-military targets. The United Nations investigated, but Israel refused to cooperate. In May 2010, Israel attacked an international aid flotilla bringing food and medical supplies to Gaza in international waters. 9 people were murdered including an American from New York. In June 2014, citing as their excuse the murder of three teenagers in the West Bank (which even the West Bank police said were not linked to HAMAS), Israel launched operation PROTECTIVE EDGE, bombing Gaza into rubble, again refusing to cooperate with UN investigators, and ultimately refusing to keep to the terms of the cease fire.

In the same period of time, the United States, officially a secular nation but predominantly Christian, attacked El Salvador (1980), Libya (1981), Sinai (1982), Lebanon (1982 1983), Egypt (1983), Grenada (1983), Honduras (1983), Chad (1983), Persian Gulf (1984), Libya (1986) , Bolivia (1986), Iran (1987), Persian Gulf (1987), Kuwait (1987), Iran (1988), Honduras (1988), Panama (1988), Libya (1989), Panama (1989), Colombia, Bolivia, and Peru (1989), Philippines (1989), Panama (1989-1990), Liberia (1990), Saudi Arabia (1990), Iraq (1991), Zaire (1991), Sierra Leone (1992), Somalia (1992), Bosnia-Herzegovina (1993 to present), Macedonia (1993), Haiti (1994), Macedonia (1994), Bosnia (1995), Liberia (1996), Central African Republic (1996), Albania (1997), Congo/Gabon (1997), Sierra Leon (1997), Cambodia (1997), Iraq (1998), Guinea/Bissau (1998), Kenya/Tanzania (1998 to 1999), Afghanistan/Sudan (1998), Liberia (1998), East Timor (1999), Serbia (1999), Sierra Leon (2000), Yemen (2000), East Timor (2000), Afghanistan (2001 to present), Yemen (2002), Philippines (2002) , Cote d'Ivoire (2002), Iraq (2003 to present), Liberia (2003), Georgia/Djibouti (2003), Haiti (2004), Georgia/Djibouti/Kenya/Ethiopia/Yemen/Eritrea War on Terror (2004), Pakistan drone attacks (2004 to present), Somalia (2007), South Ossetia/Georgia (2008), Syria (2008), Yemen (2009 and 2015), Haiti (2010), Libya (2011), Syria (2011), Ukraine (2014), Iraq (2015), etc. etc. etc. etc.

Bill Clinton’s Own Warning About Fissile Material Being Used in Capitol Truck Campaign

This truck and another like it are circling around the U.S. Capitol this afternoon as debate has begun on the Iran nuclear deal.

They’re sponsored by StandWithUs, an international Israel education organization, and intend to “represent how little nuclear material it takes to cause severe destruction, quoting former president Bill Clinton.”

And while today’s appearance coincides with a rally on the Capitol lawn, the trucks will continue to circle the White House and Capitol on Thursday and Friday, which is the 14th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

Israel hiding killers who burned Palestinian family alive, minister reveals

Israel’s conduct turned out to be depressingly predictable.

Haaretz reports today that, according to Israel’s defense minister Moshe Yaalon, “Israel’s defense establishment knows who is responsible for the arson attack that killed three members of a Palestinian family two months ago, but has chosen to prevent legal recourse in order to protect the identity of their sources.”

Yaalon reportedly told a closed meeting of activists from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud Party that three Jewish suspects were put under administrative detention following the attack.

Witnesses had seen the attackers flee to the nearby Israeli settlement of Maaleh Efraim after the Dawabsha home was set on fire.

US claims Russia ’destabilizing Syria’ stand the truth on its head

US claims that Russia is ’destabilizing Syria."

[laughing] "That’s amazing to hear Josh Earnest talk about destabilization. The US is behind this proxy war of head-chopping fascist nutjobs, and they have the gall to say that Russia is interfering or destabilizing. What’s gettting them riled up is that they are being called on their game: They are being called to account, and someone is actually standing up to their efforts at regime change. It has nothing to do with ISIS, it has nothing to do with ’revolution.’ It’s just another coup.

House Plans 9/11 Iran Vote as GOP Looks to Undermine Nuclear Deal

While the announcement that 42 senators are now supporting the P5+1 nuclear deal means the Republican leadership has no chance of getting a vote against the deal through Congress, they have indicated that they still intend to hold a vote in the House, tentatively scheduled for 9/11.

Indications are that 11 hours of debate over three days are planned to culminate with this vote, and without the chance of a filibuster, as in the Senate, a resolution condemning the nuclear deal will almost certainly pass, though without the accompanying bill in the Senate, it will be wholly meaningless.

It will, however, set the stage for another round of pushes to undermine the deal, with Republican presidential candidates planning more speeches condemning the pact, and Congressional leaders trying to come up with legislation that might survive a veto that would make it harder for the US to implement its part of the deal.

"Because when Israel tells us to so something, we by GAWD do it without asking any questions! Other than where is the campaign donation check, of course!" -- Congress

The Parable of the Man Wearing a Suit, Covered In Blood, Holding a Bloody Knife, Before the Body of the Victim, Who is Declared Innocent of the Crime, And the Truth about the Official 911 Narrative

A man, dressed neatly in a suit and tie, is found splattered with blood from head to toe holding a bloody knife before the body of a stabbing victim. The man calmly explains that he is not the murderer and he only just discovered the body. In a calm voice he says that he's a trusted member of the Government and that terrorists were responsible.

During the investigation it is discovered that the only footprints (bloody ones) were found to be from the man in the suit. His fingerprints were on the knife and no others. Regardless of these facts other men in suits focus the investigation on an elaborate tale that centres on the activities of a group of known terrorists.

1yr, 6,700 airstrikes & $4bn after Obama vowed to ‘destroy’ ISIS, jihadists still on offensive

The US and its allies have carried out 6700 airstrikes at an expense of nearly $4 billion in the year since President Barack Obama ordered a campaign against Islamic State. Yet the terror group shows no sign of defeat and has even expanded its reach.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That is because the US created ISIS as a pretext to bomb Syria and take it away from the Syrian people, triggering the refugee crisis.

US reportedly plans to revamp Syrian rebel training program after early failure

The Pentagon is overhauling its plan to train and equip a fighting force of moderate Syrian rebels against ISIS after many of the program's first 54 graduates were attacked and a number of its fighters captured in late July, according to a published report.

The New York Times, citing four Defense Department and Obama administration officials briefed on the issue, reported late Sunday that the Pentagon is now considering several changes aimed at improving the program's effectiveness. Those proposals include enlarging the size of the groups sent into Syria, dropping them in places where they have local support, and improving the intelligence the fighters are given.

The $500 million train-and-equip initiative, run by U.S. Special Forces in Turkey, was announced by President Obama in June of last year. However, the program didn't actually begin until May of this year.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

$500 million, 54 graduates, and total failure. Yep; that's the Pentagon for you!
