'Independent' GMO researcher received $25K grant from Monsanto

This is why when people say 'the science supports' something, you need to look into who is funding the research.

Guess who’s running the new BRICS Bank

One of the IMF’s Executive Directors is also a Vice President of the BRICS Bank. According to the IMF website… “The Executive Board (the Board) is responsible for conducting the day-to-day business of the IMF. It is composed of 24 Directors, who are appointed or elected by member countries or by groups of countries, and the Managing Director, who serves as its Chairman. The Board usually meets several times each week. It carries out its work largely on the basis of papers prepared by IMF management and staff.”

First Near-Fully Formed Brain Grown In Lab, Ohio State Scientists Say

Scientists at Ohio State University say they've grown the first near-complete human brain in a lab. The brain organoid, if licensed for commercial lab use, could help speed research for neurological diseases and disorders, like Alzheimer's and autism, Rene Anand, an Ohio State professor who worked on the project, said in a statement Tuesday,

Husband and wife 'use Bible as excuse to keep teenager as sex slave for five years'

The girl told investigators that she was forced to call Rob “master,” and that Marie Johnson had pushed her against a wall and held her by her throat until she agreed to the meet the sexual demands.

She also said that she was beaten when she failed to follow the couple’s directions or complete her chores.

The girl, who has not been identified, said that the abuse happened repeatedly for five years until she was 18 years old.

According to police, throughout this time Rob Johnson held Sunday school classes for his family at their home, invoking Old Testament Bible Passages to justify the couple's actions.

James Boyd: New Mexico officers to stand trial for murder in homeless man's death

Prosecutors filed murder charges against the two officers in the killing of 38-year-old James Boyd, who authorities say had schizophrenia. He was shot during an hours-long standoff in the foothills of the Sandia Mountains, where police accused him of camping illegally. He died at a hospital after his arm was amputated. Seven police officers around the country have faced murder charges for on-duty incidents since 2010. One was convicted of manslaughter and assault after a second-degree murder count was dropped. The rest are still in court proceedings.

Bill Gates Slips Up: “Vaccines Reduce Population Growth”

Vaccines reduce population growth, according to Bill Gates. He comes right out and says it. In the above video clip at the 0:28 mark, you can hear Gates say that “the benefits (of vaccines) are there in terms of reducing sickness, reducing population growth.” He then adds that “it really allows society a chance to take care of itself”, which means of course, to those in the know, that it really allows the sick, poor and weak to be wiped out by the elite New World Order eugenicists – all under the guise of modern medicine and “saving lives”. Society is not taking care of itself. That’s a euphemism, and it’s also a complete inversion of the truth, which is that vaccines reduce population growth, and therefore, ruthless pyschopaths are killing undesirables.

Cascadia fault chatters and pops with little quakes

Initial results from a program to monitor the Cascadia Subduction Zone in unprecedented detail show that the fault off the Northwest coast isn’t as seismically quiet as it has long appeared.

Seafloor seismometers deployed as part of the National Science Foundation’s Cascadia Initiative detected nearly 600 small earthquakes off central Oregon during their first year of operation — quakes that didn’t register on any land-based instruments.

100 Reasons Leo Frank Is Guilty

Proving That Anti-Semitism Had Nothing to Do With His Conviction — and Proving That His Defenders Have Used Frauds and Hoaxes for 100 Years

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Leo Frank case is important because the conviction of Leo Frank, his pardon by a Jewish Governor, followed by his lynching by an outraged crowd, led to the formation of the Anti-Defamation League, which was formed to protect Jews form negative publicity (defamation) no matter what they actually do. More recently, the ADL has expanded into lobbying and espionage, the latter stemming from a 1993 case in San Francisco that was settled out of court.

Microsoft issues emergency patch for all versions of Windows

The zero-day flaw (classified as CVE-2015-2502) works by exploiting a flaw in how Internet Explorer handles objects in memory. If successfully exploited, an attacker could "gain the same user rights as the current user," the advisory said. Those running administrator accounts are particularly at risk, it said.

Simply put: this flaw could allow an affected Windows machine to be taken over by an attacker.

FLASHBACK - Ron Brown: Evidence Of A Cover up

Bill Clinton appointed Ron Brown Commerce Secretary, partly as a reward for Ron Brown's success as a campaign fund raiser. From day one, allegations surrounded the exact means and methods by which this success was attained. Investigations into Ron Brown's activities (his son would later plead guilty to money laundering) were nearing the point of indictments, and Ron Brown had publicly stated that he would not go to jail alone, when the airplane carrying Ron Brown and about 30 other people crashed in Bosnia.

Research: Some Cancer Diagnoses Kill Quicker Than The Cancer

Published in the New England Journal of Medicine, researchers looked at data on more than 6 million Swedes aged 30 and older between 1991-2006 using the country’s health registries in order to determine how the psychological toll of cancer diagnosis impacts the risk for death. After analyzing over 500,000 people who were diagnosed with cancer during that period, the risk of suicide was found to be up to 16 times higher and the risk of heart-related death 26.9 times higher during the first week following diagnosis versus those who were cancer free.

Sometimes called the nocebo effect (In contradistinction to the placebo effect), a doctor’s negative attitudes and beliefs surrounding a diagnosis may infect the patient with despair and hopelessness, two psychospiritual states at the very root of dis-ease.

FLASHBACK - Vincent Foster Wound to Neck Shown in Highly Credible Photo

A CRIME scene photograph from the investigation into the death of the White House aide Vincent Foster appears to prove that the federal authorities have lied about the case and perpetuated a cover-up that continues to deceive the Foster family, the US Congress, and the American people.

The photograph is one of the few surviving pictures taken by a Park Police officer soon after Foster's body was found in Fort Marcy Park on July 20, 1993. It reveals that Foster suffered trauma on the right side of his neck, just below the jawline. On the photograph there is a clearly visible wound about the size of an old sixpence, marked by a black "stippled" ring suggestive of gunpowder burns. It has the appearance of a small-calibre gunshot wound.

Greek PM Tsipras to Move Parliamentary Vote on Reforms to House Summer Sessions

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras is considering closing down the Greek Parliament plenary in order for the new reform bills to be voted during the parliamentary summer sessions, according to sources from the Maximos Mansion.

By closing down the House plenary, Tsipras avoids the vote of confidence option and subsequent early elections in September. Analysts say that the prime minister is aware that it is very unlikely that he would get the House vote of confidence. All opposition parties are against his decision to sign the third bailout and almost one third of his own party MPs have announced that they will not back him and the austerity memorandum he brought.

Everything is Fake: Top 40 Pieces of Fakery in Our World

Everything is fake in our society today – or at least a great many things are. Our world is filled with an extraordinary amount of lies, deception, disinformation, misinformation, fakery, fraud, facades, mirages, propaganda and brainwashing. The good thing though is that once you awaken to the deception, you can use it as a tool for raising your consciousness. The idea that virtually everything is fake can be empowering rather than depressing. Sure, we’ve all felt overwhelmed, sad, angry and impotent at times when we’ve seen just how easily our (mis)leaders can fool the masses with sophistry and empty rhetoric, but they’ve all been placed there to challenge us to wake up more quickly and fully, and reclaim our world.

Here’s my list of the top 40 pieces of fakery in our world today:

32 COPS, FIRED 600 BULLETS INTO 1 CAR FULL OF HOSTAGES, KILLING A HOSTAGE

Discharging a firearm in circumstances that endanger innocent persons or hostages, is prohibited by police departments. So why on Earth would 32 cops chase down a car full of hostages, fire into that car killing a hostage, and even fire directly over their colleagues in the process? The answer to that question, according to a detailed report released Monday by the Police Foundation, is because of a “lack of planning.”

Hillary Clinton: Too Important to Make an Example Of?

The scandal over Hillary Clinton's secretive, private handling of classified communications while secretary of state has got legs with muscle-bound thighs precisely because it hits her in all of her well-established negatives: that's she's secretive, paranoid, is beholden to a cadre of insiders, and is fundamentally dishonest and untrustworthy. It is the perfect scandal to derail her campaign among anybody who isn't already a loyal supporter. (Even now, the Clinton campaign's unresponsiveness is drawing attention even on MSNBC.)

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Clintons are untouchable, meaning they have the political connections and blackmail information needed to hold off prosecution, as happened in Florida when a Clinton-appointed judge tossed Larry Klayman's RICO case against the Clinton Foundation out of court.

So I do not recommend wasting any time trying to get Hillary jailed. For myself, I will feel a deep satisfaction if she fails to win the White House.

Economists Brace for September: “Building Up to Catastrophe of Historic Proportions”

An outright panic has taken hold over many who see September 2015 as a convergence of ominous events. RT profiled several who are bracing for next month’s signposts of doom:

Jeff Berwick, Canadian entrepreneur and editor of The Dollar Vigilante, recently told Gordon T. Long in an interview: “There’s enough going on in September to have me incredibly curious and concerned about what’s going to happen.”

Doug Casey, [head of Casey Research said] “With these stupid governments printing trillions and trillions of new currency units,” Casey, describing the US Federal Reserve’s quantitative easing program, “it’s building up to a catastrophe of historic proportions.”

MUST-SEE: Black Woman Rips Council over Illegal Aliens

Chanell Temple, a black woman originally from Huntington Park, delivered a strident, politically incorrect speech against illegal immigration on Monday evening at the local city council meeting.

Temple, who now lives in the Hawthorne area of Los Angeles, was protesting the council’s recent decision to appoint two illegal aliens to city commissions. She told Breitbart News she had not intended to speak at the meeting, but was offended when someone compared illegal aliens to slaves. She added that she supports Donald Trump “a hundred percent.”

How to Survive When You Can’t Pay Your Bills

Let’s talk about poverty.

I don’t mean the kind you’re talking about when your friends invite you to go shopping or for a night out and you say, “No, I can’t. I’m poor right now.”

I don’t mean the situation when you’d like to get a nicer car but decide you should just stick to the one you have because you don’t have a few thousand for a down payment.

I don’t mean the scene at the grocery store when you decide to get ground beef instead of steak.

I’m talking about when you have already done the weird mismatched meals from your pantry that are made up of cooked rice, stale crackers, and a can of peaches, and you’ve moved on to wondering what on earth you’re going to feed your kids.

Or when you get an eviction notice for non-payment of rent, a shut-off notice for your utilities, and a repo notice for your car and there’s absolutely nothing you can do about any of those notices because there IS NO MONEY.

Altered Genes, Twisted Truth: Monsanto’s Silence is Deafening

In his book ‘Altered Genes,Twisted Truths’, US public interest attorney Steven Druker exposed the fraudulent practices and deceptions that led to the commercialisation of GM food and crops in the US. Not long after the book’s release, he wrote an open letter to the Royal Society in Britain calling on it to acknowledge and correct the misleading and exaggerated statements that it has used to actively promote GMOs and in effect convey false impressions and the other to Monsanto. He followed this up by delivering a challenge to Monsanto’s headquarters on May 20, 2015 calling on the company to address the evidence presented in the book.

No, Bernanke … Defense Spending Does NOT Help the Economy!

War is widely thought to be linked to economic good times. The second world war is often said to have brought the world out of depression, and war has since enhanced its reputation as a spur to economic growth. Some even suggest that capitalism needs wars, that without them, recession would always lurk on the horizon. Today, we know that this is nonsense. The 1990s boom showed that peace is economically far better than war. The Gulf war of 1991 demonstrated that wars can actually be bad for an economy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

War is good business for the people in the business of war, but overall, it amounts to taking vast sums of tax money and setting it on fire.

Venezuela's currency is now so worthless that people are using it as napkins

An image is going round that sums up just how ridiculous Venezuela's economy has become.

A Reddit user uploaded a picture on Monday of a man using a 2 bolivar note to hold an empanada.

According to Venezuela's official bolivar-dollar exchange rate, the man using his money as a napkin is wasting about $0.31 (£0.20).

But on the black market, the reality is completely different. You can get 676.88 bolivars to the dollar, according to dolartoday.com. That means holding food with a 2 bolivar note costs the holder less than a third of one US cent.

Russia to display mega H-bomb copy in Moscow

Russia will display a replica of the most powerful nuclear device ever to be exploded - the Soviet "Tsar Bomba" - near the Kremlin in Moscow next month.

The AN-602 hydrogen bomb casings will be the main draw at an exhibition devoted to Russia's atomic achievements since 1945, at the Manezh centre.

The Soviet Union exploded the 58-megaton H-bomb in 1961 in the Arctic. It was about 3,000 times more powerful than the Hiroshima atom bomb.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A not-very subtle message. The Tsar Bomba was actually designed to have a 100-megaton yield, but they dialed it back for the test.

Why Hillary Clinton Should Not Be the First Female President

As a candidate, I find Hillary Clinton problematic. I don’t worry about her health and age; Karl Rove’s red-faced high blood pressure isn’t having much of an effect on mine. Her policy preferences are not my concern. I’m sure she would be a strong and decisive leader, that she could and would do great things for Americans across the United States, for men and women alike. I prefer her to most other potential Democrats. No, I find Hillary Clinton problematic in that, if elected, she would be America’s first female president.

Watergate journalist compares Hillary Clinton's emails to Nixon's tapes

Watergate journalist Bob Woodward thinks Hillary Clinton's private email account controversy shares some similarities with Richard Nixon's infamous Watergate scandal. Woodward, who was one of the Washington Post reporters who helped break the story that eventually led to President Nixon's resignation, compared Clinton's emails to the Nixon tapes in an interview Monday, as Nixon thought that the tapes he kept documenting conversations were "exclusively his."

Civilians bear brunt of air strikes in Yemen

Warplanes from a Saudi-led coalition killed six civilians in an air raid that targeted the home of a Houthi leader in the southwestern Yemeni town of Jibla on Monday, local officials said.

Eleven people were killed in another air raid on a family house in the northern province of al-Jawf, bordering Saudi Arabia, tribal sources said.

Air strikes also hit the Red Sea port of Hodaida while on the ground, fighters loyal to the exiled government pushed closer to Houthi strongholds.

Tribal militiamen battled Houthi forces throughout the mountainous area of Ibb, which lies between the coast and the Houthi-controlled capital Sanaa.

Loyalist forces, back by Gulf Arab planes, weapons and training, have been on the offensive since breaking out off the southern port of Aden last month, claiming a string of gains against the Houthis.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Does anyone remember just how many candidates were on the ballot when Al-Hadi ran for President of Yemen?!? Just one; his.

When the revolt happened, the US decided to enable the Saudi military machine to kill men, women, and children non-coms, creating an environment which makes any kind of dialogue for reconciliation and a civil, diplomatic solution to the crisis impossible.

I am reminded of the siege at Montsegur, when the Cardinal overseeing the battle was told that the Cathars had women and children among them. The prelate said, "Kill them all: God will find his own."

And I would like to politely remind both the Saudi and US governments that the indiscriminate slaughter of non-combatants is a war crime.

The Kingmaker

Paul Eisen, until a week ago anonymous as far as most Brits were concerned, is now a kingmaker. The UK Jewish Lobby is convinced, for some reason, that the nature of Eisen’s relationship with Labour’s leading candidate Jeremy Corbyn will determine the future of this country.

As we witness the most important political debate in Britain for generations being hijacked by the Zionist media and ‘Jewish sensitivities’, the time is ripe to ask: who is Paul Eisen?

Eisen has been described by the Jewish press and its acolytes as an ‘anti Semite’ and a ‘holocaust denier’, but peculiarly, no one mentions that Eisen is actually a Jew who sometimes even speaks ‘as a Jew’.

Biggest Gay Lobby Group in America Urges Schools to Ban Words ‘Boy’ and ‘Girl’

The biggest gay rights lobby group in the United States has called on schools to eliminate “gender stereotypes” by training staff to avoid using the words “boy” and “girl” in class.

A new back to school guide published by the Human Rights Campaign designed to make classrooms “gender inclusive” urges teachers to “avoid using gender to divide and address students” so as to prevent any transgender students from becoming upset.

“Instead of addressing your class using “boys” and “girls,” try something new. Words like “friends,” “students” or “scholars” allow all students to feel included, expand student vocabulary and model inclusive language and behavior for other students and teachers,” states the guide.

Asking students to identify as male or female on paperwork is also vehemently discouraged, with the guide encouraging schools to, “consider adding a third write-in option for those who have non-binary gender identities.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let's stop using the word "human" as that discriminates against our furry friends, and it's been a long time since we acted human anyway! :)

VA caught sending veterans' mail to the shredder

The government watchdog for the Department of Veterans Affairs reported Monday that it was able to substantiate claims that the VA's Los Angeles office was sending mail from veterans to the shredder.

The VA's Office of Inspector General said it launched an "unannounced inspection" of the Los Angeles office after hearing allegations that the VA staff there was shredding mail related to veterans' disability compensation claims. Though the OIG said it can't measure how often this might have happened, it did say it found some examples of mail lined up for the shredder that instead should have been opened and read.

So what exploded in China on 12 August?

Many questions are left unanswered. Why were these stores placed so close to the residential areas? Why were the residents unaware of such a threat? And why did the logistics company store 700 tons of cyanide against only 10 tons allowed? A quarter of teaspoon is deadly for humans. And the substances were kept in a negligent way, and even in the open.
All these questions generate conspiracy theories.

US Military Prepares Drastic Escalation of Global Drone Program

Citing exclusive interviews with senior U.S. officials, the WSJ's Gordon Lubold reports that the number of daily flights by aircraft such as MQ-1 Predator and MQ-9 Reaper drones will surge an estimated 50 percent. Further, the expanded drone program will "draw on the Army, as well as Special Operations Command and government contractors," in addition to the U.S. Air Force, which currently carries out most of the operations for the Pentagon and Central Intelligence Agency.

Lobuld reports: "The Pentagon envisions a combined effort that by 2019 would have the Air Force continue flying 60 drone flights a day, the Army contributing as many as 16 and the military’s Special Forces Command pitching in with as many as four. Government contractors would be hired to fly older Predator drones on as many as 10 flights a day, none of them strike missions."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to wonder; how much of this increase in drones will be domestic, as well as international?

And how far a stretch is it for this President to have his legal eagles determine that extrajudicial assassinations in this country are just as legal as they are overseas?!?

Unfortunately, in light of the fact that Obama has already decided he is capable of being judge, jury, and (proxy) executioner, not much.

Iraq Inquiry - Five Year, £10 Million Whitewash of Blair Regime?

Bereaved UK families who lost sons and daughters in the illegal invasion of Iraq have now threatened legal action against Sir John Chilcot who headed the near two year long, £10m Iraq Inquiry (30th July 2009 - 2nd February 2011) if a date for release of Inquiry findings is not announced publicly within two weeks. Further, suspicions over the reason for the approaching five years near silence from Sir John are raised by a detailed investigation by journalist Andrew Pierce.
Felicity Arbuthnot: writing in the Daily Mail he highlights the seemingly close relationship between Sir John Chilcot and Tony Blair.
Pierce refers to Blair's first appearance before the Inquiry five years ago when: "the Chairman, Sir John Chilcot treated him with almost painful deference." What few realized was that Sir John, a former career civil servant: "could, in fact, have greeted Blair as an old friend."

German farmers claim their products 'devaluation' because of Russian embargo

German agricultural producers have suffered significant damage because of the Russian embargo imposed in response to the EU sanctions.
Joachim Rukwied, President of the German Farmers Union stated today at a special conference in Berlin.
''The prices for agricultural products have dropped in all the industries, and it is especially related to the reduction of export to Russia. Our export to Russia decreased two times,'' Rukwied said.
He also noted, that because of such measures the German farmers experience ''mass devaluation'' of their products.

President Hollande costs France dear

President Francois Hollande has attained nothing but a significant drop of economic indices for three years of his being in office, according to the French Boulevard Voltaire.
Hollande's actions are reported to have lead to as much as 54 billion euro losses for less than 3 months. ''Our 'brave' President keeps making mistakes in geopolitics, that French taxpayers will be paying for,'' the article says.
It is also noted that France will pay Russia 2 billion euro for not delivering Mistrals, and taking into account that France lost one billion euro not having finished two of the warships, total loss of the country makes up 3 billion euro.
As a result, France also lost a contract worth 48 billion euro on delivering 26 Dassault Rafale fighter aircraft to India. The agreement worth 5.2 billion euro to deliver these fighter jets to Egypt is also under threat of failure.

All Is Not Well In Hillaryland

Things are getting weird when even Al Gore is thinking of getting into the Democratic presidential race, which is turning into a last hurrah for the Baby Boomers and their tad-older camp counselors.

Hillary Clinton, permanently punctilious, has done everything right: She put her HQ in Brooklyn, hired savvy digital/social/big data nerds, raised a ton of dough, gave substantive, well-thought-out speeches and flooded early primary and caucus states with organizers. She's still the default bet for the Democratic nomination: national polls show her with a fat 36 percent lead.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This woman is absolutely no different than the woman who so resolutely "cleaned up" after her philandering husband, making sure that the women with whom he slept were as utterly destroyed as she could possibly make them.

For her, the rules do not exist; they're only for "the little people", not for someone of her wealth and stature. And the Emailgate scandal is more of a symptom than the problem itself, which is a completely sociopathic personality. She can take no responsibility for anything wrong she has ever done, including the debacle which was Benghazi.

The truth of the business is, she is just as bought as any other politician by the major corporations which fund her covertly and overtly.

At the end of the day, you utterly cannot trust her at all; she has the morals of a trout.

And yes, I would love for a woman to become president, and soon; just, please Heaven, not THIS woman.

FLASHBACK - The Death of Vincent Foster

This is the story that nobody dares touch. This is the story that ended my career in Hollywood back in 1994.

Despite having reported the discovery of Dr. Haut's signed report confirming the existence of a second wound to Vincent Foster's neck, radio host Rush Limbaugh to this very day refers to Vincent Foster's death as a suicide.

Even Matt Drudge, when presented with the FBI records proving that the FBI fraudulently manufactured Lisa Foster's recognition of the gun found at Fort Marcy Park, refused to get involved, opting instead for a story accusing Sidney Blumenthal of domestic violence (for which Drudge was then sued and made famous).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Larry Nichols finally got back in touch with me and we will be re-scheduling his interview. Meanwhile, his interview on yesterday's Alex Jones show has re-ignited public suspicion that White House Deputy Counsel Vincent Foster was murdered, and the body dumped in Fort Marcy Park and declared a suicide by an all-too-complicit FBI.

Not to steal Alex Jones' thunder, but we had that memo about Foster found in his car years ago.

One-Quarter Of Mothers Return To Work Less Than 2 Weeks After Giving Birth, Report Finds

While high-end firms that employ the most well-educated and well-paid U.S. workers compete in a benefits arms race, too many working women are forced to skimp or skip out on maternity leave because of the United States’ lack of paid leave policy, a new analysis of data from the Department of Labor makes clear.

Nearly 1 in 4 new mothers surveyed by the department in 2012 were back at work within just two weeks of having a new baby, according to an analysis conducted by researchers at Abt Associates for an investigative feature in In These Times, published Tuesday morning.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think that one of the greatest measures of how well a society is really working is how it treats new moms and their infants.

But having to go back to work after only two weeks off is wrong for both moms and their newborns up in ways I cannot begin to articulate.

Scandinavian and European countries leave the US in the dust in the way they structure their maternity leave programs; I think we need to learn something from them on this issue.

Israel-West Bank 'Separation Barrier' Project Continues Despite Court Ruling To Halt Construction

Ultimately, the barrier would separate the city of Beit Jala from the Israeli settlement of Har Gilo and village of Walaja, much to the dismay of the Walaja Town Council, which filed a petition against the barrier nine years ago along with landowners and the Roman Catholic Cremisan Monastery. The High Court of Justice only took the case this year.
Note: We are God's chosen and will do whatever we want whenever we want to!!

Get used to the idea that you will never retire: GAO report shows that half of Americans 55 and older have no retirement savings at all.

Some of you might remember the glossy highly produced advertisements back in the early 1980s when Wall Street decided it was time to turn American retirement plans into casinos. The slow and agonizing death of the pension plan was supposed to be replaced by the beautiful and wonderful world of the 401(k) plan. Save for 30 years and in the end, you will be a millionaire just like your friends on Wall Street that sincerely care about your financial future. Of course since then, we have found out about junk bond scandals, mutual fund fees that make loan sharks look conservative, and of course the financial shenanigans of giving people toxic mortgages that were essentially ticking time bombs of destruction. This was the industry that was put in charge of helping you plan for your future. We are now a generation out from those slick ads and the results have been disastrous for most Americans.

BELLA CIAO JULIAN BOND

This weekend the world lost one of the greatest heroes of our time, Julian Bond. In an obituary that appeared in the New York Times yesterday it was reported that ‘Julian Bond’s great-grandmother Jane Bond was the slave mistress of a Kentucky farmer.’ Twitter was overloaded with comments yesterday that he wasn’t a farmer but a slave master, and there is no such thing as a slave mistress. Being a mistress is voluntary, she was a raped slave. Interesting that a writer at the Times didn’t use language properly, and great that so many people spotted it. Also interesting that there was no correction for this at the Times.

Hillary's email firm was run from a loft apartment with its servers in the BATHROOM, raising new questions over security of sensitive messages she held

The IT company Hilary Clinton chose to maintain her private email account was run from a loft apartment and its servers were housed in the bathroom closet, Daily Mail Online can reveal.

Daily Mail Online tracked down ex-employees of Platte River Networks in Denver, Colorado, who revealed the outfit's strong links to the Democratic Party but expressed shock that the 2016 presidential candidate chose the small private company for such a sensitive job.

One, Tera Dadiotis, called it 'a mom and pop shop' which was an excellent place to work, but hardly seemed likely to be used to secure state secrets. And Tom Welch, who helped found the company, confirmed the servers were in a bathroom closet.

FLASHBACK - The New McCarthyism

Of course, what was really involved was money. War is good for business. Business had been great during WW2 and the newly created "Cold War" was just a way to keep business good. The Military Industrial Complex NEEDED Hollywood to demonize the Soviets. Otherwise, too many people were going to ask why we were being told to be so afraid of them, and few in the government had a really convincing answer for that question. So, in order to perpetuate the Cold War, those in Hollywood who might sympathize with the designated villains had to be removed; their ruined lives a small price to pay for unending access to the taxpayers' wallets.

CHICAGO, LOS ANGELES POLICE DEPARTMENTS HAVE BEEN USING 'STINGRAYS ON STEROIDS' FOR OVER A DECADE

More evidence has surfaced showing local law enforcement agencies are using high-powered surveillance equipment -- equipment originally designed for the military and highly-recommended by the NSA. Ali Winston and the Center for Investigative Reporting have obtained documents showing both Chicago and Los Angeles have used "dirt boxes"(DRT -- Digital Receiver Technology "boxes:" high-powered cell site simulators) since 2005.

In Chicago, the Digital Receiver Technology equipment was purchased in 2005 with funds collected in asset forfeiture cases. In Los Angeles, the police department purchased a package of Digital Receiver Technology equipment with $260,000 in homeland security grant funding. The sole-source purchase was approved unanimously by the Los Angeles City Council in 2005. Both departments also use StingRays, a more commonly known cell-site simulator manufactured by the Florida-based Harris Corp.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yes, police departments can now surveille to their hearts' content; but does this technology make the citizens living in LA or Chicago actually more safe?!?

I would tend to doubt that completely.

FANT4STIC BORE: CHANGE IS FORCED

My first real exposure to the Fantastic Bore was not any of the materials most movie studios hoped to shove in front of a person, it was a story I linked a week ago. Titled: ‘Fantastic Four’ actors shut down radio interview over racist, sexist questions. At the time, I thought it was more about out of touch, millennial actors, over-reacting to a relatively innocent question.

Turns out, I was right.

But it’s worse.

They aren’t just out of touch, millennial actors; they are out of touch, preachy, entitled, millennial social justice warrior actors.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hollywood is cranking out remakes or remakes of remakes, each new version tuned to the propaganda demands of corporations and government in Washington DC and Tel Aviv. And Hollywood is also going through a repeat of what happened in the aftermath of the McCarthy blacklisting when the truly creative people were driven out of Hollywood for daring to think really creative thoughts that didn't conform to the political correctness of the day! Hollywood has gone through a purging of anyone who is not politically correct, or dares to point out where the government has gone wrong. My own story is tragically far from being unique. I have a lot of company in the category of "You'll never work in this town again" exiles. All that is left in Hollywood are obedient hacks who think making a movie is a license to tell us all what to think and feel about anything, and after a while, the constant proselytizing gets annoying, even with 5.1 Dolby Sound and Real 3-D! Those few powerhouse filmmakers with the courage to tell a real story get shunned and shut out of the awards, as happened to James Cameron for "Avatar" (still my all time favorite movie). It is no wonder that Hollywood is not the center of the motion picture universe it once was, or that people are cutting their cable TV subscriptions for lack of anything new and interesting (without the constant preaching) to see.

23 NATIONS AROUND THE WORLD WHERE STOCK MARKET CRASHES ARE ALREADY HAPPENING

You can stop waiting for a global financial crisis to happen. The truth is that one is happening right now. All over the world, stock markets are already crashing. Most of these stock market crashes are occurring in nations that are known as “emerging markets”. In recent years, developing countries in Asia, South America and Africa loaded up on lots of cheap loans that were denominated in U.S. dollars. But now that the U.S. dollar has been surging, those borrowers are finding that it takes much more of their own local currencies to service those loans. At the same time, prices are crashing for many of the commodities that those countries export. The exact same kind of double whammy caused the Latin American debt crisis of the 1980s and the Asian financial crisis of the 1990s.

IF VACCINES ARE SAFE, WHY HAS THE US GOV. PAID OUT $3 BILLION TO VACCINE-INJURED FAMILIES?

Vaccines are a very imperfect science, despite the good intentions of healthcare providers and parents seeking to protect their children from disease. Adverse, life-changing and deadly effects of vaccines are more common than ever. In fact, the US government has had to pay out over $3 billion to vaccine-injured families since 1986. Still think vaccines are safe?

The Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) lists several negative outcomes of vaccines. Many of these side effects are worse than the diseases these vaccines are for! VAERS reports that the MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccine is “linked to febrile seizures, which are a type of seizure that occurs in infants and young children in association with fever.” While these seizures hold no long-term consequences, they can be a frightening experience.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am not a rabid "antivaxxer"; when Mike had his bout with pneumonia last year, I did have the pneumovax vaccine, which doesn't prevent you from catching pneumonia, but does keep it from killing you.

But all the vaccines mandated for kids before they ever see the inside of a classroom in kindergarten at age 5: YIKES!!

A very smart mom locally made sure her kids were vaccinated, but never with combinations of vaccines, which have never been tested as to adverse reactions from the combinations of vaccines into one shot.

Detroit on pace to sell 3,000 vacant lots to neighboring homeowners this year for $100 each

Linda Gadsden spent years living next door to an overgrown and weed-filled dumping ground.
By next summer, the 63-year-old Detroiter says it will be a lush garden with pumpkins, watermelon, tomatoes, lettuce and greens.
It cost Gadsden less than two hours and $100 to snap up the property next to her corner lot home on Indiana Avenue during a Detroit Land Bank Authority side lot sale fair last month.

Trump Like Reagan; That's Why He Can Win GOP Nomination

The Republican establishment doesn't want him as a Presidential candidate. A former Democrat, he admires a Democratic president Republicans love to hate. He has a penchant for making controversial statements. He does what he wants and doesn't play be the established political rules. Yet every time the mainstream media tolls the death knell for his candidacy, his poll numbers grow stronger and supporters become even more determined to get him the GOP nomination.

Of course, this all describes current Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump. But those statements also describe Ronald Reagan in his first three runs for the Presidency in 1968, 1976, and 1980.

FBI Evidence Proves Innocence of Accused Boston Marathon Bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev

The documents argue that on the basis of the evidence provided by the FBI, there is no basis for the indictment of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. The FBI’s evidence clearly concludes that the bomb was in a black knapsack, but the photographs used to establish Dzhokhar’s presence at the marathon show him with a white knapsack.

The truth (Wash DC)

Many younger voters will have no knowledge of "Travelgate." Hillary wanted to award unfettered travel contracts to Clinton friend Harry Thompson -- and the White House Travel Office refused to comply. She managed to have them reported to the FBI and fired. This ruined their reputations, cost them their jobs, and caused a thirty-six month investigation. Only one employee, Billy Dale was charged with a crime, and that of the enormous crime of mixing personal and White House funds. A jury acquitted him of any crime in less than two hours

The 6 Most Ridiculous F***-Ups In The History Of Science

There's no doubt that science has made all of our lives much better, as evidenced by the fact that we wrote this article entirely from the men's room of our neighborhood Chipotle. (We'll be living here for the rest of the week, if you need us.)

But that's science, dude -- scientists, on the other hand, are just normal people who get up every morning, drive to work, and occasionally fuck up in excruciatingly highfalutin' ways. What are we talking about?

You’ll Never Guess What Starbucks Just Announced! (Hint: You Made This Happen!)

Almost exactly one year ago, I published a simple blog post without realizing how much of a wave of change that it would create. That post, “You’ll Never Guess What’s In A Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte (Hint: You Won’t Be Happy)” was my second investigation into Starbucks, which exposed their lack of transparency when it comes to the ingredients in their drinks. It took repeated requests and determination, but I was finally able to obtain the complete list of ingredients in their most popular seasonal drink. Just like many of their other drinks at the time, I found that the “Pumpkin Spice Latte” contained Class IV caramel color, no real pumpkin, natural and artificial flavors, and a huge dose of sugar. - See more at: http://foodbabe.com/2015/08/17/youll-never-guess-starbucks-just-announ...

What the Latest Currency ‘War’ is All About

When the US embarks on perennial quantitative easing, that’s OK. When the EU does QE as well, that’s OK. But when the Bank of China decides it’s in the best interest of the nation to let the yuan go down a bit instead of infinitely up, that’s Armageddon.

An internationalized yuan established as a global reserve currency implies a "market-determined" exchange rate policy.

It took the Bank of China to devaluate the yuan on two consecutive days — moving within the 2 percent band that it’s allowed to — for the proverbial global financial banshees to go completely bonkers.

Forget the hysteria. The heart of the matter is that Beijing has stepped on the gas in a quite complex long game; to liberalize the yuan exchange rate; allow it to free float against the US dollar; and establish the yuan as a global reserve currency.

Superconductivity record sparks wave of follow-up physics

Hydrogen sulfide — the compound responsible for the smell of rotten eggs — conducts electricity with zero resistance at a record high temperature of 203 kelvin (–70 °C), reports a paper published today in Nature1.

The first results of the work, which represents a historic step towards finding a room-temperature superconductor, were released on the arXiv preprint server in December2 and followed up by more in June3. They have already sparked a wave of excitement within the research community.

A superconductor that works at room-temperature would make everyday electricity generation and transmission vastly more efficient, as well as giving a massive boost to current uses of superconductivity such as the enormous magnets used in medical imaging machines.

Readers may be asking, “What’s Morgellons disease?” Well, it’s one of the new, technical age diseases, which may have its roots in genetic engineering/modification or even transhumanism research. Allopathic medicine is bombing out on acknowledging that it exists, claiming sufferers are delusional, but those who do acknowledge it, feel it’s a legitimate health problem and candidly suggest there is no treatment for it.
