Bill O'Reilly's Cameraman Shreds The Last Threads Of His Falklands Lies

After a call from a cameraman friend, I watched Bill O'Reilly's report filed in 1982 from Buenos Aires for CBS during the Falkland War posted a few weeks ago on the Mother Jones web page. The part that caught my attention was Mr. O'Reilly's claim that he helped his cameraman to safety who was bleeding out of his ear after he fell when chased by the army.Ninety-nine percent of the footage in that report was shot by me. Does that make me his cameraman? I never fell nor was I bleeding out my ear at any time during my Buenos Aires assignment. I do not even recall Mr. O'Reilly being near me when I shot all that footage nor after I left the unrest at Plaza de Mayo that evening.

FLASHBACK - Iran nuclear deal deadline extended to July 1

Iran and world powers have given themselves seven more months to clinch a landmark nuclear agreement, and defuse a 12-year standoff.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US corporate media are blaring that 6PM Eastern time is the deadline for a deal, after which Boehner will start upping the sanctions, the war drums will double their tempo, and Israel might just go ahead and attack Iran's power station (the way they did Iraq's) over the Passover holiday. BUT, the reality is that today is NOT the final deadline at all. There are three more month's to go!

Study Reveals Sad Link Between Poverty And Children's Brain Development

We've long known that children from affluent families get a head start that can translate into a long-lasting advantage, especially when it comes to academic achievement. Now, scientists have found what may be part of the explanation: Children who grow up in higher-income families appear to have larger brains.

Researchers from nine universities across the country, led by neuroscientists at Children's Hospital Los Angeles and Columbia University Medical Center, conducted a major new study of the effects of family income and parental education on child and adolescent brain development.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When kids go to school hungry, they can't learn. When they are chronically hungry, it affects brain development. And as reported at the Washingtonpost.com in October of last year:

The United States ranks near the bottom of the pack of wealthy nations on a measure of child poverty, according to a new report from UNICEF. Nearly one third of U.S. children live in households with an income below 60 percent of the national median income in 2008 - about $31,000 annually. In the richest nation in the world, one in three kids live in poverty. Let that sink in.

If indeed, "children are our future", this US government has collectively made the decision that the future of this country...is expendable.

Israeli Espionage Network in Washington: The Prime Suspects

Sooner or later, Israel’s deep penetration of US power centers and its manipulation of elected American officials, will lead to a prolonged, bloody, destructive war.

Iraqi Militiamen Plan To Travel To Yemen To Battle U.S.-Backed Coalition

Iran-backed Shiite militiamen in Iraq say they're ready to take up arms in a country most of them have never been to: Yemen.

“We defeated ISIS in Syria, we’re defeating ISIS in Iraq, and we’ll defeat them in Yemen,” Abu Kumael, a volunteer fighter with the powerful Iran-supported Shiite militia known as the Peace Brigades, told The WorldPost Monday. “We’re not just talking. We’re physically ready to go and fight.”

In Iraq, the militias are working on the same side as U.S. forces against the self-declared Islamic State. But once the militiamen get to Yemen, they'll be fighting not for the U.S., but against the Americans -- which means that the U.S. will be battling the same forces, and in some cases the very same men, that ISIS is taking on in Iraq.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US government's invasions and occupations in this region are bearing bitter fruit all across the Middle East.

The deBaathification of Iraq was one of the most pig-headedly, ham-fistedly idiotic things the Bush administration decided to do, and led to a literal civil war between the Sunni-Shiite religious elements in this country.

It appears that neither of the last two administrations, collectively, had the intellectual capability of think a scenario through to its logical conclusion; in fact, that particular logic-disabled thinking seemed to be a prerequisite for employment with both administrations.

But there is one thing of which I am reasonably certain; the catastrophic failure of geopolitical imagination, which lead to the invasion and occupation of Iraq; the assassination of Qaddafi in Libya; the invasion and occupation of Afghanistan; and the propping up of a US-sponsored dictator in Yemen, Al-Hadi, nearly guarantees DC's need for more US boots on the ground in the Middle East to attempt to sop up the mess of blood and political movements not to the US government's liking.

Looking at how rapidly events are unfolding, it is only a matter of time. And were I a betting woman, I would not bet against the timing of this being very soon, before the onset of summer.

BEX ALERT - North Pole travel advisory: Check ice before leaving

Global warming

This is a big factor. The sea ice, where the water freezes and thaws, is getting thinner every year.

The first person to claim he reached the pole was Robert Peary in 1909. Exactly where he ended up is still being debated.

Peary reported the ice was 12 feet thick, and now it can be as little as four.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The supporters of human-caused global warming are starting to sound as whacked out as the Scientologists in the new HBO Documentary "Going Clear!" (Which I highly recommend seeing)

Having been embarrassed by several record setting winters in a row destroying their prediction that "Snowfalls are now a thing of the past" (UK Independent, March 20, 2000), the warmistas are now trying to make claims of proof of global warming in remote places in the hope nobody can go check for themselves. But even this latest claim that the arctic ice is at a record low has already been discredited by the raw satellite data which shows the Arctic ice has been increasing steadily since 2006.

Yes, the adherents of the Holy Church of St. Al of the Gore (The "Goracle" to his close friends) are a lot closer to Scientologists than to science!

BEX ALERT - NYT ad calls on Obama to act like Churchill, not Chamberlain

Popular New Jersey Orthodox Rabbi Shmuley Boteach took to The New York Times on Friday to criticize President Barack Obama's emerging nuclear deal with Iran, saying it could spell disaster for the Middle East region and the world. Boteach's World Values Network ran a full-page ad in the paper warning that the agreement -- which might be finalized by Tuesday -- could backfire like the ill-fated 1938 Munich Agreement and result in a war.

"Mr. President: Fighting al-Qaida made you like Churchill. Appeasing Iran will make you like Chamberlain," the ad read. It warned that Obama was rushing to a deal that would ignore the brutality of the Iranian regime and allow it to maintain "the potentially catastrophic one-year-weapons-breakout period, which endangers Israel, the Middle East, America and the world."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Okay, Rabbi, if you really feel that way, here's your rifle.

The 12th Anniversary Of Aafia Siddiqui's Abduction: What Happened To Aafia Siddiqui And Where Is She Now?

A Pakistani Woman named Aafia Siddiqui was abducted from a taxi in Karachi, Pakistan along with her 3 children 12 years ago on March 30, 2003. At the time she was vulnerable, recently divorced from an abusive husband; living with her mother; her father had just died of a heart attack. The youngest child was an infant. Following her abduction, Aafia Siddiqui and her children disappeared from view for 5 years. She spent those years in US Black Site prisons in Afghanistan and Pakistan. One can only imagine the torment she suffered there, in a system created to enable the torture and abuse of terrorism suspects. She was a woman alone. They took her children, and threatened them when personal torture was not enough to gain her acquiescence.

Four Years of Syrian Resistance to Imperialist Takeover

U.S. efforts to overturn the government of Syria have now extended into a fifth year. It is increasingly clear that thousands of predictions reported in the corporate media by Western politicians, think tanks, diplomats and generals of a quick overturn and easy destruction of Syrian sovereignty have been overly optimistic, imperialist dreams. But four years of sabotage, bombings, assassinations and a mercenary invasion of more than 20,000 fighters recruited from over 60 countries have spread great ruin and loss of life.

Herbicides used with GM crops alter antibiotic resistance of disease-causing bacteria

A new study has found that exposure to the herbicides used on GM crops changes how susceptible disease-causing bacteria are to antibiotics. In many cases the bacteria became more antibiotic-resistant, though in other cases they became less so. The study was carried out by Prof Jack Heinemann, Dr Brigitta Kurenbach, and other scientists from New Zealand and Mexico. Below Prof Heinemann and Dr Kurenbach respond to questions from GMWatch.

GMW: What did you find?

Heinemann: When we exposed either of two different species of bacteria to common herbicides that we purchased at a local store, we found that the bacteria changed their response to antibiotics. They often became antibiotic resistant, but we also occasionally saw increased susceptibility or no effect.

Comey was back before Congress this week - this time in front of the House Appropriations Committee - imploring Congressmen to pass a law that would force tech companies to create a backdoor in any phone or communications tool that uses encryption.

He also revealed the Obama administration may be crafting such a law right now. “One of the things that the administration is working on right now is what would a legislative response look like that would allow us … with court process to get access to that evidence”, he said.

Monsanto and spinoff ArborGen set their sights on GM trees and grasses

In recent years, Monsanto and ArborGen have been developing GM trees including trees modified to withstand Monsanto's Roundup, trees designed with a reduced lignin content to appeal to paper making and construction industries (lignin gives trees their strength and rigidity) and "terminator trees" which don't produce seeds. In Hawaii, there has already been a contamination issue with GM papaya - the world's first commercially planted genetically engineered tree.

One of the GM trees currently being readied planting is GM Eucalyptus, despite numerous unresolved and unstudied concerns such as:

*Cryptococcus neoformans gattii, a yeast pathogen hosted by a variety of Eucalyptus species. It causes systemic fungal infections in humans, leading to fungal meningitis and death.

Lawmakers Declare Vaccines Essential to ‘National Security’ After Taking Money from Big Pharma

The absurdly titled “Vaccines Save Lives” initiative declares into existence an alternate universe in which vaccines are 100% safe and effective. Introduced by Representatives Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), Charlie Dent (R-Penn.), Thomas Marino (R-Penn.) and Peter Welch (D-Vt.), the resolution “affirms [that] vaccines and immunizations save lives and are essential to maintain the public health, economic and national security of the people of the United States.”

By dressing up in patriotic terms such draconian nonsense, the politicians behind this decree aim to crystallize in the public groupthink the idea that vaccines are nothing less than God’s gift to mankind. Without them, claims these corporate hacks, there would be “a true public health crisis” that puts mostly children at risk.

More failed Western 'Russian Tanks' propaganda exposed

There’s a clear intended meaning when one casts out that there are ‘Russian tanks’ on the side of Novorossiya Forces. And it isn’t that it’s a ‘Russian tank’, which in any case it almost certainly is, the vast majority of Ukraine’s 2500+ tanks built in Soviet times as Ukraine’s tank building production collapsed post 1991 independence (Kharkov’s Malyshev factory which produced 800 a year in Soviet times, down to fewer than 10 a year in Ukrainian).

Latin America, China and USA

The US-unleashed propaganda war against China has reached unprecedented level in Latin America. Americans use all means at their disposal for that purpose, including hundreds of TV channels, thousands of radio stations and films telling about “Chinese threat”. Puppet journalists are regularly used now to make skillfully prepared fakes go around. Ballyhoo is raised by “ecologists” concerned over the China’s plans to build the Nicaraguan Canal or the joint China-Venezuela gold mining project in the Venezuelan national park. Even a furtive look is enough to pinpoint the source of this stories circulating around the Western Hemisphere from Mexico to Chile.

Don’t See Evil

As it turns out, the national security state has been involved with Google from the very beginning: even in those fabled grad school days when Google was nothing but a research project, as investigative reporter Nafeez Ahmed has shown. Founder Sergey Brin’s work at Stanford University on what would later become Google received funding and even oversight from the CIA and the Pentagon through a program created to seed and incubate technology research that could later prove useful for information warfare.

Now, as discussed below, Google may even be actively taking part in that information warfare, especially the branch known as “perception management,” and in addition to its participation in mass surveillance.

During and immediately after the first Gulf War, more than 200,000 of 700,000 U.S. troops sent to Iraq and Kuwait in January 1991 were exposed to nerve gas and other chemical agents.

A quarter of a century later, the troops nearest the explosions are dying of brain cancer at two to three times the rate of those who were farther away. Others have lung cancer or debilitating chronic diseases, and pain.
