Holocaust-denying historian David Irving organises 'disgusting' £2,000-a-head holiday tours of former concentration camps and Hitler's HQ so people can 'make up their own mind about the truth'

Holocaust-denying historian David Irving has sparked widespread fury by organising 'disgusting' tours of concentration camps costing £2,000 for each participant.

The disgraced academic, who is a self-confessed fascist, is leading a tour group to sites in Poland such as Treblinka, Sobibor and Hitler's 'Wolf's Lair' headquarters.

Holocaust memorial groups have accused Irving of insulting the memory of those killed in the Second World War by spreading 'pro-Nazi propaganda' on the tours.

Cs-134/137 detected from 9 of 9 pond smelt samples in Gunma

From the report of Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare published on 8/24/2015, significant density of Cs-134/137 was detected from all of 9 pond smelt samples.

The sampling locations were Gunma prefecture. The samples were collected this August.

Because Cs-134 was detected from 8 of these 9 samples, it is clearly from Fukushima accident.

The highest reading was 62 Bq/Kg.

Chipotle Customer Files Class-Action Lawsuit Over Restaurant’s Alleged GMO Claims

A law firm in San Francisco has filed a class-action lawsuit against Chipotle on behalf of a consumer.

What a bunch of bird brains! Council threatens pensioner with £2,500 littering fine after taking secret photos of her feeding birds in local park

Over-zealous council bosses threatened a pensioner with a £2,500 fine for littering - after they took secret pictures of her feeding BIRDS in her local park.

Janet Tomlinson, 72, has fed the sparrows and blue-tits in her park for 31 years but she has now been banned from doing so after officials claimed it encouraged rats.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

They say the same thing here in Hawaii.

Side note. Many years ago the Hawaii guvummunt decided to do something about the Polynesian Rats who arrived here in the voyaging canoes. So they imported the Mongoose figuring the species would fight and reduce each others' population. Except that Mongooses are active in the day while rats are nocturnal, so the two species rarely meet. As a result, Hawaii has TWO pest populations instead of one.

EU referendum question is 'biased' in favour of staying tied to Brussels and needs to change, election watchdog warns Cameron

Mass Layoffs To Hit Banking Industry As Consumers Ditch Big Box Banking

The days of big banks are done. Million dollar buildings that double as empty fortresses will soon be empty, or conveniently turned into FEMA holding centers when the collapse hits.

The tide is turning and the banks know it. Mass layoffs have been announced by almost every major institution in the world and this is just the beginning. Unfortunately small town America will be hit the hardest as some of these jobs are the highest paying in the household. Also taking a major hit will be Charlotte, NC, the banking center of the US, where Wells Fargo has over 22,000 employees, Bank Of America 15,000 and most major banks have a presence. Be on the lookout for some great real estate deals in Charlotte soon.

EPA now trying to swindle Native Americans out of compensation after polluting their land with toxic waste

The Washington Times reported that tribal leaders say the Obama Environmental Protection Agency is attempting to cheat Navajo Indians by convincing them to sign away rights to future claims following the agency's Gold King Mine disaster. These charges are only magnifying the White House's public relations problems following the toxic spill, which threatens to disrupt critical waterways in the Southwest for many years to come.

Within days of the disaster, EPA officials began going door to door asking Navajos – some of whom do not speak English as their primary language – to sign a form offering to pay them some damages they have incurred from the spill so far. Signing the document waives any rights to return with new claims in the future if costs spiral higher than expected or if they encounter new, currently unforeseen fallout, Navajo President Russell Begaye told The Washington Times.

Global Trade In Freefall: South Korea Exports Crash Most Since 2009

While the market's attention overnight was focused on China's crumbling manufacturing and service PMI, data which was already hinted in the flash PMI reports earlier in August, the real stunner came not from China but from South Korea, which last night reported an unprecedented 14.7% collapse in exports, far worse than the -5.9% consensus estimate, and more than 4 times worse than July's 3.4%. The number is critical because not only do exports account for about half of South Korea's GDP but because it also happens to be the first major exporting country to report monthly trade data. That makes it the perfect barometer of global trade flows, or as the case may be, the canary in the global trade coalmine.

Breaking the Depleted Uranium Ceiling

It is not that there is an Iraq test. It is that Iraq is the touchstone for adherence to the neo-liberal consensus. All these professionally successful people share a number of attitudes, of which support for the Iraq War is a good indicator. There is a very strong correlation between support for the Iraq War and fierce Zionism. But there is also a strong correlation between support for the Iraq War and support for austerity economics. The strongest correlation of all lies in support for the Iraq War and for “business-friendly” tolerance of corporatism, TTIP, multinational tax avoidance, low taxation and marketization of public services including in education and health.

To return to where I started, the quite extraordinary thing is that there is a near-universal recognition in wider society that the Iraq War was both completely unjustified and a dreadful strategic blunder. Yet its support is a major pre-condition for membership of the governing elite.

Russian Military Forces Arrive In Syria, Set Forward Operating Base Near Damascus

The base is said to be in area surrounding Damascus, and will serve, for all intents and purposes, as a Russian forward operating base. In the coming weeks thousands of Russian military personnel are set to touch down in Syria, including advisors, instructors, logistics personnel, technical personnel, members of the aerial protection division, and the pilots who will operate the aircraft.

Why Iran Won’t Double-cross Russia

Some speculation is weaving through the airwaves that once its US-imposed sanctions are lifted in several months, Iran will shift its existing allegiance with Russia and instead double-cross the Great Russian Bear by doing gas and oil export deals that directly undercut Russia, especially Gazprom’s Turkish Stream gas pipeline aimed at the southern EU states. Were that to occur, perhaps at the same time a Pentagon and CIA backed rearming of the Ukrainian army and supply of massive heavy artillery to launch a far more effective military assault on the eastern Ukraine self-proclaimed republics, the Washington calculation would be a devastating blow to Putin and Russia’s economic stability. No matter what dreams may be floating around the Pentagon however, for many reasons an Iranian double-cross is highly unlikely.

A cold July for the birds

For the month of July, I was on the Grand Banks working on a seismic exploration vessel as an environmental observer. It is always cool out here in July, with the air temperature pretty well the same as the water temperature — at about 10 C all the time.

But on the Avalon Peninsula, daytime high temperatures struggling to reach 10 C in July is not right! I am hearing from my correspondents standing firmly on earth back home on the Avalon Peninsula that July has been exceptionally cool, dark and wet. Normally in July the winds blow from the southwest, pumping warm, humid air over Newfoundland. These winds bring fog to the south coast of Newfoundland and the Grand Banks, but also the warm, sunny summer weather that most of the island enjoys in a normal July. The Grand Banks have actually been less foggy than normal this July because the winds have been mostly from the northwest and northeast.

Coldest July on Record in Some Parts of Iceland

The lowest average July temperature was measured up on Gagnheiði, near Selfoss in South Iceland. There, the average temperature was a frosty 1.59°C. “That is the lowest average temperature ever seen in July at an Icelandic weather station,” Trausti says—noting, however, that the station at Gagnheiði did not exist until the year 1993.

Trausti says the lowest July figure from previous years was also from Gagnheiði in 1995, at 3°C. That was 1.4 degrees warmer than this year’s average, RÚV reports.

In addition to Met Office weather stations, Trausti has also monitored data from National Roads Administration stations this year. “The figures lowest place figures of all are lower even that the lowest July averages to date at Roads Administration stations. This was the coldest July that these stations have seen,” he writes.

NSW shivers through coolest July in 18 years

NEW South Wales has experienced its coldest July since 1997, according to the Bureau of Meteorology.

The mean temperature for NSW during July was 0.2 °C below average, making it the coldest July since 1997.

Daytime temperatures were 0.5 °C below average and the coolest since 1998, with most areas of the state recording well below average daytime temperatures and parts of central NSW recording their coolest July days in over 20 years.

An eight-day cold snap at the beginning of the month had temperatures hovering near minus 100 degrees Fahrenheit, with record lows recorded on seven of those days. The exceptionally cold streak kept workers busy throughout the week maintaining the station during such extreme temperatures.


Temperatures first started to dip sharply on July 2, plunging from around minus 90 to minus 105 degrees Fahrenheit over the course of the day. The following day was the coldest of the year so far.

“We got down to minus 109.1 the evening of July 3rd and, just sitting in my office, I could hear the metal sheeting on the outside of the station ‘popping’ as it contracted with the cold,” O’Connor said.

Are Russians Sending Military Support To Syria? Potential For Conflict With NATO?

By Brandon Turbeville

If reports coming from YNet News are accurate, the Syrian crisis just became more complex and more dangerous. The report would be great news for the Assad government, however, as it suggests that, in addition to providing Syria with six new MIG 31 jets and providing satellite images with the SAA, the Russians will also be delivering an expeditionary force of Russian soldiers.

YNet claims that the Russian force will be made up of fighter pilots, attack helicopter pilots, advisors, technicians, logistics personnel, instructors, and members of the aerial protection division. The forces are to be stationed at a permanent base in Syria. Although the Russians already maintain the Port of Tartus, YNet suggests that the new base of operations will be an “Assad-controlled” location in an area surrounding Damascus...

Fresh on the heels of a blast of unseasonably chilly summer weather last week, yet another shot of cool air has spread across parts of the central and eastern United States. Several record lows have already been set, and even parts of the South are seeing relief from the summertime humidity.

The cool air first spread throughout the Plains and Midwest on Sunday, dropping high temperatures 10 to 20 degrees below average from the Texas Panhandle and central Oklahoma to the Dakotas and Minnesota.

On Sunday morning, Casper, Wyoming, recorded its coldest August temperature on record with a low of 29 degrees. The old August record low was 33 degrees in 1977. Weather records in Casper date back to 1939.

Rapid City tied its coldest record low for August on Sunday morning and set a new daily record when the temperature dropped to 38 degrees.

24 yo black man with mental issues dies in prison after minor grocery theft

A Virginia family is looking for justice after their 24-year old son’s death in prison. Accused of stealing approximately $5 worth of snacks, Jamycheal Mitchell has seen no trial since April as a judge described him as “incompetent” to stay it due to mental issues.

Mitchell was found dead at Hampton Roads Regional Jail in Portsmouth, VA, on August 19, local WAVY-TV news channel reported. Now Mitchell’s family and their attorney have more questions than answers about what happened to Jamycheal.

“I think it’s twofold,” attorney Mark Krudys said. “It’s the death of her son [Mitchell's mother Sonia Adams], obviously, but it’s also the circumstance surrounding his death.”

Court Rules That Illegal Aliens Have Second Amendment Rights

When Mario Meza-Rodriguez was five years old, his parents brought him into the United States illegally. By the time he was an adult, he managed to get in trouble with the police after getting into a bar fight two years ago. When the police arrested him, they discovered a .22 caliber pistol in his pocket. Even though illegal aliens can’t own firearms under federal law, Meza-Rodriguez argued in court that charging him for possessing the pistol would violate his Second Amendment rights. The court disagreed. He was convicted and deported.

TSA Worker Accused of Molesting Girl in Airport Bathroom

Imagine a profession that grants its workers the power to confiscate the belongings of law-abiding citizens, detain them arbitrarily, scan them with machines that can record their naked bodies, and physically fondle the private parts of adults and children.

Now imagine if that job granted police powers without requiring law enforcement training, and was so frowned upon and hated by the vast majority of the public, that they would probably have to hire just about anyone who walks through the door. With all that power and responsibility combined with such low standards, you could reasonably expect that job to attract absolutely horrible people, right?

Of course it would. Which would probably explain why the following transpired.

‘Victoria Nuland may be passing out virtual cookies outside Kiev’

The same forces that are pushing radicals in key hot spots in and around Europe – the US in the first place – also have a part in the protests going on in Kiev. They are not innocent, they just don’t appear in the picture in front of the TV cameras, says political analyst Aleksandar Pavic.

In Kiev, Ukraine’s capital, crowds of protesters came to oppose amendments to the constitution that would provide for decentralization of the country. As a result dozens were injured and one security officer was killed after a grenade was thrown outside the parliament.

CDC Issues Warning: Doctors on Alert for Bubonic Plague: “There is a Heightened Risk… We Don’t Want People To Panic”

“It is unclear why the number of cases in 2015 is higher than usual,” the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says. Many of the cases are occurring in rural and semi-rural areas in the western United States. The report lists two cases in Arizona, one in California, four in Colorado, one in Georgia, two in New Mexico and one in Oregon. The cases in California and Georgia have been linked to areas in or near Yosemite National Park in the southern Sierra Nevada. Dr. Natalie Kwit of the CDC emphasizes, “We don’t want people to panic but we do want them to be aware of the heightened risk.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Of course the illegal immigrants who came into the US carrying Bubonic plague have nothing to do with it!
