Netanyahu’s lies know no bounds

Four years ago, then French President Nicolas Sarkozy told US President Barack Obama in a conversation about Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, “I can’t stand him. He’s a liar.” Obama replied: “You’re fed up with him? I have to deal with him every day.” It was a private conversation, but we know about it because it was accidentally broadcast to journalists.

Politicians may deliberately mislead people, omit vital facts, spin the truth a dozen different ways to serve their purposes of the moment, but they usually avoid outright lies. It’s just too embarrassing to be caught in a lie. And other politicians generally accept that some of their colleagues shade the truth to fit their own agenda as one of the regrettable realities of their trade. They all swim in the sea.

What drove Sarkozy and Obama to talk about Netanyahu like that was the sheer brazen effrontery of his lies — and he was at it again recently. In public, this time.

Back in Britain after 14 years in Guantanamo without charge: Shaker Aamer flies into Kent airport… and will now meet the son he has never seen

The last British prisoner in Guantanamo Bay has landed back in the UK after finally being released from the notorious jail.

Shaker Aamer arrived on a chartered private jet paid for by the British government, split 50-50 between the Foreign Office and the Home Office.

It is believed he was taken from Biggin Hill airport by a private ambulance service to undergo a health check-up before returning to his home in Battersea, south London.

The father-of-four will soon be reunited with his wife Zin and children – one of whom, a boy named Faris, he has never met.

ISIS laid a secret oil pipeline through Iraq to Turkey

ISIS militants laid a secret oil pipeline from controlled areas to Turkey via Iraqi Kurdistan, told Russian news agency Sputnik the former CIA official and senior investigator of the US Senate foreign relations committee, John Kiriakou. According to him, the illegal oil pipeline operates thanks to the connivance of local regional authorities who receive a share from the sale of oil.

Horrifying moment father and toddler daughter were LOCKED inside Vauxhall Zafira as it filled with smoke - and carmaker admits it doesn't have enough parts to fix them all

A father and his three-year-old daughter were left trapped inside their car as it filled with smoke after it spontaneously set on fire.

Jason Williams, 40, held the toddler's hand as he tried to break through a window after flames melted the central locking system of their Vauxhall Zafira.

They only escaped when a passer-by forced open one of the doors after seeing them struggling.

Mr Williams, from Swansea, is among more than 130 motorists who have also seen their cars burst into flames in a spate of unexplained incidents which are being investigated by the manufacturer.

While Vauxhall has pledged to inspect its Zafira B models for free, the British carmaker today admitted it will soon run out of the car parts needed to replace potentially-faulty components.

Ramirez said Israel needed to look at its own record of human rights pertaining to Palestinians.

"Really, I believe that Israel has a lot of things to review. Their behaviour against the Palestinian people, they have to check what they are doing in Palestinian [territories]. More than thousands of childs in jail, in Israeli jail, and now this violence in Jerusalem and in the holy place. I prefer not to be confronting here, it's not the occasion, but Israel has to review a lot of things related with human rights," he added.

Study Finds Human DNA in Hot Dogs & 10% of Veggie Dogs Made with Meat, But Lab Censors Brand Names

A private food testing lab called Clear Food is ramping up with a project it says will publicly post scores for foods based on whether the food composition matches the label. Sadly, this lab wants to be a “friend” of the food industry and won’t be testing for GMOs, pesticides or anything not listed on the label. They’re not even releasing the brand names of the hot dogs contaminated with human DNA!

In its first big announcement, the lab tested hundreds of hot dogs and veggie dogs and found some very disturbing things.

For starters, it found human DNA in hot dogs. “Two percent of all samples were found to have traces of human DNA in them. Veggie dogs were the worst off, accounting for 67 percent of the hygiene issues and two-thirds of the human DNA found,” reports Yahoo News.

Gaza aid pledges fail to materialize

Promises have been made by officialdom that the house and others in the neighborhood will be rebuilt with aid from Kuwait. Yet none of the $200 million pledged by Kuwait in Cairo has been made available, according to World Bank data.

“Whenever I go to ask the [Gaza] housing ministry, they keep on delaying things,” al-Hamayda said. “It has been very frustrating.”

As their uncertainty continues, the al-Hamayda family struggles to make ends meet. The United Nations has covered their monthly rent of $200 for the apartment where they now live on just two occasions in the past year. The rest of the time the family has had to pay the full amount themselves.

Their plight is in no way unique.

During Wednesday night’s debate, moderator Carl Quintanilla asked Carson, “This is a company called Mannatech, a maker of nutritional supplements, with which you had a 10-year relationship. They offered claims they could cure autism, cancer. They paid $7 million to settle a deceptive marketing lawsuit in Texas, and yet your involvement continues. Why?”

Carson responded, “Well, that’s easy to answer: I didn’t have an involvement with them. That is total propaganda. And this is what happens in our society — total propaganda. I did a couple speeches for them. I did speeches for other people. They were paid speeches. It is absolutely absurd to say that I had any kind of relationship with them. Do I take the product? Yes. I think it’s a good product.”

However, as Politifact pointed out, Carson is featured prominently in Mannatech promotional materials including infomercials and the company’s home page.

The Palestinian news agency Ma’an said on Friday that a Palestinian youth was run over by an Israeli military jeep before the injured young man was nabbed by the Israeli forces.

Footage of the incident aired by the al-Aqsa TV showed the military vehicle speeding up at a group of youths who were protesting weeks of Israeli aggression against Palestinians in the occupied West Bank.

Israeli forces apparently blocked and assaulted medics who were attempting to reach the hit person, the video showed.

California Police Department Is Letting Their Officers Carry Nunchuks

Nestled near mountains of Northern California, lies the small town of Anderson with a population of 10,000. Their small police department has decided to give their policemen the option to carry a rather unconventional weapon. Provided they attend a 16 hour course, the officers will soon be allowed to carry nunchakus.

As strange as it may sound, the Anderson Police Department thinks this move could change the public’s perception that police are overly aggressive. They argue that the nunchakus will give their officers more options to restrain a suspect, whereas a traditional baton is mostly limited to being used as an impact weapon. According to Police Chief Michael Johnson “In an era where the general public is extremely sensitive to police techniques and use of force issues, nunchakus offer another force option that may offset some of the more aggressive perceptions the public has about police intervention.”

London’s ping pong diplomacy: red carpet for China, red card for Russia

The red carpet rolled out by the British government for Chinese President Xi Jinping, whose three-day visit this week was marked by a lavish state banquet in his honor hosted by the Queen and a two-night stay at Buckingham Palace, contrasted with the almost complete estrangement between London and Moscow. Trade talks between the Chinese and the British culminated in several landmark deals, in particular, the agreement with the China General Nuclear Power Corporation for a nuclear plant at Hinkley Point, Somerset, worth some 6 billion pounds ($9.2 billion). The City of London, the world’s leading financial hub with the biggest foreign exchange market, was especially keen in engaging with the Chinese because it has emerged as the largest renminbi trading center outside of Asia. With around a third of British GDP generated in the finance sector, China has the status of a super VIP-client.

It appears that Washington, ever a seething cauldron of bright ideas, is looking for a shooting war with China, or perhaps trying to make the Chinese kowtow and back down, the pretext being some rocks in the Pacific in which the United States cannot possibly have a vital national interest.

Years back I went aboard the USS Vincennes, CG-49, a Tico class Aegis boat, then the leading edge of naval technology.

The Navy has not been in a war for seventy years. It has sat off various shores and launched aircraft, but the fleet has not been engaged. Over decades of inaction, complacency sets in. Unfortunately, wars regularly turn out to be otherwise than expected. Further, the American military’s standard approach to a war is to underestimate the enemy (there is probably a manual on this).

How Microsoft will cram Windows 10 even harder down your PC's throat early next year

Windows 10 already appears as a free "optional" update for some Windows 7 and 8.1 systems, and soon this will be widened to all machines running a genuine copy of Win 7 and 8.1.

Then early next year, Windows 10 will become a free "recommended" update – meaning it will be immediately downloaded by any PC or device that automatically installs "important" and "recommended" updates.

Windows 10 will therefore find its way onto potentially millions more machines because Microsoft recommends that people always install "important" and "recommended" updates automatically.

US refuses to recognize South China Sea islets as Chinese territory


China has warned against any violation of its territorial waters by American warships.

A Chinese Defense Ministry spokesman said the country’s military will take all necessary measures in response to any future incursions by US vessels into its territorial waters around islands in the South China Sea. The warning followed the sailing of a US guided missile destroyer within the 22-kilometer territorial limit of one of the islands newly created by China. The US refuses to recognize the man-made islets in the strategically vital region as deserving of sovereign territory status. The Chinese side took no forceful action during a US warship’s sail-by on Tuesday, but strongly protested the move. The spokesman offered no details on how Beijing might respond differently in the future.

‘Game-changer’: European Parliament votes in favor of ‘dropping charges’ against Snowden

The majority of European Parliament members have voted in favor of asking constituent states to grant protection to whistleblower and former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, who has described the move as a ‘game-changer’ and a ‘chance to move forward’.

MEPs have urged EU member states to “drop any criminal charges against Edward Snowden, grant him protection and consequently prevent extradition or rendition by third parties, in recognition of his status as whistle-blower and international human rights defender,” a European Parliament press release stated.

“The Gun Is Civilization” By Maj. L. Caudill, USMC

Human beings only have two ways to deal with one another: reason and force. If you want me to do something for you, you have a choice of either convincing me via argument, or force me to do your bidding under threat of force. Every human interaction falls into one of those two categories, without exception. Reason or force, that’s it.

In a truly moral and civilized society, people exclusively interact through persuasion. Force has no place as a valid method of social interaction, and the only thing that removes force from the menu is the personal firearm, as paradoxical as it may sound to some.

When I carry a gun, you cannot deal with me by force. You have to use reason and try to persuade me, because I have a way to negate your threat or employment of force.

Who Would Be Hillary’s First Lady?

We can all see it’s beyond time to raise an upside down ‘America is in dire distress’ flag*. Unfortunately the prospects for a rescue boat on the horizon are zilch. We won’t be saved by new leadership in 2016. Just as predicted, “Voters will come home to Jeb/Hillary.” There is a reason why Bernie handed Hillary the debate.

The fix is in for the pantsuit queen. A Democratic National Committeewoman says her party is ‘clearing a path’ for Hillary because ‘the women in charge’ want it that way.

Following in Obama’s footsteps of hiding behind his race to shut down any opposition, Hillary will be able to use her gender to cry foul.

And she may even be able to use her sexual preference to scream hate speech at anyone who disagrees with her. “Hillary Clinton ‘could be our first Lesbian president,’ says Bryan Fischer. Apparently, Bill won’t be the First Man at the White House as many feared as Chelsea Clinton and Huma Abedin vie to be Hillary Clinton’s First Lady.

2 Australian ships to join Chinese navy in drills in S China Sea

Two Australian warships will hold exercises with the Chinese navy in the South China Sea next week, Australia’s defense minister said Thursday.

The announcement comes two days after a US navy patrol angered Beijing by sailing near an artificial island built by China in disputed waters in the southern part of the sea.

The HMAS Stuart and HMAS Arunta will visit China’s main South China Sea base of Zhanjiang in Guangdong province before drills scheduled early next week, Marise Payne said.

US, allies gearing up for war with Russia: Analyst

The decision by the United States and its allies to deploy more troops and heavy weaponry onto Russia’s borders indicates that Washington is gearing up for a fight with Russia, an American journalist and political activist says.

“They are clearly preparing to fight a war with Russia, and they are not only preparing to fight it at the old battle lines, but at Russia’s door, while they talk about Russia provoking,” Don DeBar said during an interview with Press TV on Thursday.

He made the remarks when asked for his views on Washington’s plans to deploy up to 4,000 more forces in countries bordering with Russia.

The Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday that under one plan, roughly 800 to 1,000 soldiers will be stationed in each of the four battalions to be deployed to Poland, Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania.

‘Tariff maidan’ in downtown Kiev divides into two camps

The protest in front of the building of the cabinet of ministers in Kiev is growing in size. Besides the tent camp of Ukraine’s Radical Party led by Oleh Lyashko, there have recently appeared tents of the Party of Ordinary People led by Sergey Kaplin. Both actions are designed to make the government lower utilities tariffs.
The tent camp of the "radicals" appeared in front of the cabinet 10 days ago. It has already acquired a stage. Some 500 people from different regions of the country are constantly in the camp. Drunk men clad in camouflage control all entrances to the tent camp. Judging by their talk, they recently returned from the area of Kiev’s military operation in east Ukraine.

Senate “Sentencing Reform” Bill Could Crack Down on Gun Owners

Gun owners should be very concerned about the “Sentencing Reform” bill (S. 2123) that passed out of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

While many non-violent offenders are being let off the hook -- and even some violent offenders who plea bargained down to “non-violent” offenses -- the bill actually increases penalties for many law-abiding (non-violent) gun owners.

For example, the bill would increase penalties for “prohibited persons,” such as the more than 175,000 veterans who have lost their gun rights if there is still a gun anywhere in the house ... or the 4.2 million seniors who are now in Obama’s crosshairs.

S. 2123 also increases penalties regarding the possession of a machine gun from 10 to 15 years. That spells trouble for people like David Olofson. While he never owned an automatic weapon, he was framed by the ATF when it took a malfunctioning semi-automatic AR-15 and tested it several times with different ammunition -- until it finally burst fired and jammed.

Iran to send ‘fleet of warships’ to the Atlantic Ocean

Iran intends to dispatch “a fleet of warships” to the Atlantic Ocean shortly, the semi-state Fars news agency reported Thursday, quoting the regime’s navy chief.

EU NEW CONDITIONS FOR SERBIA sanctions against Russia before the New Year or no chapters ?!

Serbia has received the most serious ultimatum to the European Union! Brussels authorities in Belgrade gave a deadline of no later than December 31, 2015, impose sanctions on Russia and fully align its foreign policy with EU policy.

From Brussels they say that if Belgrade does not impose sanctions on Moscow, halt accession negotiations and eliminate any financial assistance to our country.

As he so informed sources say, European officials have sent a message to Serbia that this time he will not turn a blind eye when it comes to relations with Russia.

- Attitude Brussels that Serbia must harmonize foreign policy with the EU. This means that if you do not bring a blockade of Putin's regime, Europe block the opening chapter, and further negotiations. Belgrade has made clear that in that case there will be no pre-accession funds - sources say.

HILLARY CLINTON'S NEW CAMPAIGN THEME SONG

Oct 29 12:24

The Midwife to Chaos and Her Perjury

The New York Times’ Maureen Dowd captured the moment last weekend when she referred to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as “the midwife to chaos” in Libya. Dowd apparently came to that conclusion after watching Clinton bobbing and weaving and admitting and denying as she was confronted with the partial record of her failures and obfuscations as secretary of state, particularly with respect to Libya.

The public record is fairly well-known. In March 2011, President Barack Obama declared war on Libya. He did this at the urging of Clinton, who wanted to overthrow Libyan strongman Col. Moammar Gadhafi so she could boast of having brought “democracy” to the region.

She and Obama conspired to do this even though former President George W. Bush and former British Prime Minister Tony Blair had publicly praised Gadhafi as an ally in the war against terrorist groups and even though the U.S. was giving the Gadhafi government more than $100 million a year in foreign aid.

US school cancels Halloween for students - citing diversity

Officials at the school wrote to parents to say that the school’s diversity was the reason behind the decision.

One fifth of parents whose children attend Seth Boyden Elementary School in Maplewood, New Jersey were keeping them out of school or opting not to participate in Halloween activities, CBS reported.

“To have it interfere with the learning of a significant number of families in a way that made them feel uncomfortable just didn’t make sense anymore,” Suzanne Turner, director of strategic communications for the South Orange-Maplewood School District, said.

Past Halloween celebrations had many students feeling left out, the school said.

Assistant Attorney General Peter J. Kadzik wrote: “What occurred is disquieting and may necessitate corrective action — but it does not warrant criminal prosecution.”
