A key source clues me in on TPP code of silence

It's one thing to say a federal scientist can't publicly publish details on how to build an H-bomb. It's quite another thing to say US Senators can't reveal, to the American people, what they're voting on.

There is no Constitutional basis for such an assertion. In fact, it's a direct violation of the Separation-of-Powers principle.

By assigning National Security secrecy-status to the details of the TPP, the Executive Branch is arbitrarily muzzling the Congress.

We're witnessing a stunning farce.

Sri Lanka’s New President Puts Immediate Ban on Glyphosate Herbicides

Sri Lanka’s newly elected President Maithripala Sirisena announced Friday that the import of the World’s most used herbicide glyphosate will be banned with immediate effect. The release of already imported stocks has also been stopped.

Sirisena, a farmer and ex Health Minister, stated that glyphosate is responsible for the increasing number of chronic kidney disease (CKDu) patients in Sri Lanka and added that the move would protect the Sri Lankan farming community...

DOD Admits Supporting ISIS, Buffer Zones In Syria

By Brandon Turbeville

While the Western mainstream media and even independent gatekeepers like Noam Chomsky for years spread the lie that any suggestion that the United States and NATO were supporting ISIS was a “conspiracy theory,” recently uncovered and declassified documents from the Defense Intelligence Agency have proven the Western press and the likes of Chomsky wrong and, yet again, the so-called “conspiracy theorists” right.

This is because, on May 18, Judicial Watch published a selection of recently declassified documents that were obtained from the US Department of Defense and the US State Department as a result of a lawsuit filed against the US government...

His words were frank. And in the middle of his remarks the Russian former KGB chief dropped a political bombshell that was known by Russian intelligence two decades ago.

Ex-Israeli Premier Olmert sentenced to 8 months in prison

Tel Aviv — Former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has been sentenced to eight months in prison for unlawfully accepting money from a U.S. supporter.

Monday's verdict in Jerusalem District Court caps a dramatic downfall of a man who only years earlier led the country and hoped to bring about a historic peace agreement with the Palestinians.

Olmert was convicted in March in a retrial. The sentencing comes in addition to a six-year prison sentence he received last year in a separate bribery conviction, ensuring the end of the former premier's political career.

Three Years of Confronting Western Propaganda

After my two days marathon discussion with Noam Chomsky, (at MIT in 2012), a bestselling book was born. Later this year a film will hit the cinemas.

Noam and I discussed Western imperialism, and the terror it has been spreading around the world. After WWII, at least 50 million lives were lost. Lives of those whom Orwell used to call “unpeople”; lives brutally interrupted as a result of Western-led and orchestrated wars, invasions, coups and proxy-conflicts.

Barghouthi: the EU is not biased, it is only sick of Israel‘s behaviour

Secretary General of The Palestinian National Initiative, Al-Mubadara, Dr. Mustafa Barghouti told the Palestine News Network that the EU was not biased towards either side, but rather that it was, "sick of Israel's behavior," which has become untenable, particularly following recent Israeli elections and the success of what many say is the most extremist and racist government in the Israeli history, that openly opposes Palestinian statehood, and jeopardises the possibility for lasting peace in the region.

Argentina: Workers’ Management as a Response to the Crisis

When the workers of Donnelley arrived at the plant on August 11, 2014 they found a note at the gates explaining that the company was shutting down its operations in the country and that it “regretted the inconvenience.”

This has become a fairly familiar scene. A company shuts down its plant, in order to move operations abroad and take advantage of a cheaper and more docile labor force. Under capitalism, the capitalists are free to relocate their businesses when they are no longer profitable, even if this means leaving 400 families in the streets. The workers, on the other hand, are only free to choose by whom they will be exploited.

Faced with this desperate situation, the workers’ response might have been resignation, but this was not the case. The workers decided to open the gates of the factory, occupy the plant, and restart production.

Destroying the breadbasket : The GMO-colonization of Ukraine

Powerful Western corporations want to make Ukraine the largest GMO (genetically modified organisms) grower. As time goes by, genetically modified organisms can become a poison to take away many human lives. This fact is ignored. Europe does not need GMO (the production is strictly limited there). Ukraine could very well become a test ground for GMO crops in Europe, something the rest of the European Union has been looking to prevent. Monsanto, an American multinational agromultinational and agricultural biotechnology corporation, is now moving in on Ukraine with plans to institute GMOs nationwide.

Canadian sword makers left out of Saudi arms deal

A union representing Canadian sword makers is furious after learning that the Harper government was unable to include Canadian-made swords as part of a $15 billion arms deal recently concluded with Saudi Arabia.

Saudi Arabia is one of the few countries where swords are still actively used for lethal purposes and are not just collectors items. The arms deal with a country famous for carrying out beheadings, was seen by many of Canada’s top sword makers as an opportunity to gain entry into that market.

“It’s really a shame,” said Francois Lafarge, president of CUPE 3000, which represents sword makers. “Saudi Arabia has beheaded 85 individuals this year alone. We really feel the government hung us out to dry on this one.”

The Roots of Christian Zionism: How Scofield Sowed Seeds of Apostasy

Ever wonder why so many Christians support America's many wars, especially in the Middle East? A new Christianity has emerged from the Twentieth Century called Christian Zionism or what could be called, "Angry Evangelicalism," or "Dispensationalism on Steroids." What motivates a nationally known, evangelical preacher like John Hagee to call for a preemptive strike against Iran when it is contrary to what Jesus taught and commanded his followers to do? This "Roots of Zionism" presentation may be the first of its kind with a factual explanation of how Christianity's latest apostate epidemic was launched with the publishing of C. I. Scofield's reference Bible in 1909, and the influence of the notes in it.

Canadian Media Finally Discovers Mass Graves of Indigenous Children

It was eighteen years ago this month that I first handed to a Vancouver Sun newspaper editor a list of possible mass grave sites of Indian residential school children on Canada’s west coast, based on government documents and statements from eyewitnesses who buried children there. I and these witnesses were flatly ignored: not only then, but every other time over the subsequent years that we presented such evidence to the same newspaper.

Year after year, despite all our public protests, forums, and documenting of the location of the mass graves of these children, the Vancouver Sun‘s indifference to the worst crime in Canadian history continued. And this same blind eye approach was replicated by every other “mainstream” media outlet across Canada — even when, in December of 2011, these media received from me evidence of bone and clothing samples unearthed from the Brantford residential school mass grave.

From the Very Creation of the Internet, U.S. Spy Agencies Fought to Block Encryption

American spy agencies have intentionally weakened digital security for many decades. This breaks the functionality of our computers and of the Internet. It reduces functionality and reduces security by – for example – creating backdoors that malicious hackers can get through.

The spy agencies have treated patriotic Americans who want to use encryption to protect their privacy as extremists … or even terrorists.

John F. Nash Jr., a mathematician who shared a Nobel Prize in 1994 for work that greatly extended the reach and power of modern economic theory and whose decades-long descent into severe mental illness and eventual recovery were the subject of a book and a 2001 film, both titled “A Beautiful Mind,” was killed, along with his wife, in a car crash on Saturday in New Jersey. He was 86.

Dr. Nash, and his wife, Alicia, 82, were in a taxi on the New Jersey Turnpike in Monroe Township around 4:30 p.m. when the driver lost control while trying to pass another car and hit a guard rail and another vehicle, said Sgt. Gregory Williams of the New Jersey State Police.

Only 21 percent of the respondents said they still have confidence in the political coverage they get, but that's a 12-point decrease from the 33 percent in the October 2014 survey. Seventeen percent (17%) are not sure.

Sorting Out Medical Advice from Medical Nonsense

While it’s hard to comprehend, some health recommendations are completely fabricated and are not based in any science. Dr. Kendrick wrote about this in a recent article for The Independent:1

“If you are a man, it has virtually become gospel that drinking more than 21 units of alcohol a week is damaging to your health. But where did the evidence to support this well-known ‘fact’ come from?

The answer may surprise you. According to Richard Smith, a former editor of the British Medical Journal, the level for safe drinking was ‘plucked out of the air.’

He was on a Royal College of Physicians team that helped produce the guidelines in 1987. He told The Times newspaper that the committee's epidemiologist had conceded that there was no data about safe limits available and that ‘it's impossible to say what's safe and what isn't.’

The now published heavily redacted DIA reports were released after Freedom Of Information Act litigation by the conservative Judicial Watch.

Sweetener Stevia Was Once Hailed As An Anti-Fertility Agent for Population Reduction

Check out this textbook written in 1970 by Paul and Anne Ehrlich, the precursor to the textbook Ecoscience they wrote with Obama Science Czar John P. Holdren seven years later. The book advocates all manner of horrors to depopulate what they consider an overpopulated world, including everything from adding sterilants to the water and food to producing a sterilizing virus that requires a vaccine antidote one could apply for... it's a nightmare.

As such, it was pretty shocking to find a passage where the authors excitedly discuss using stevia rebaudiana — the same sweet leaf hailed everywhere today as a wonderful, healthy sugar alternative — as an anti-fertility agent

The Pentagon says that the new Long Range Discrimination Radar (LRDR) will begin defensive operations in 2020 and will boost the capacity of ground-based interceptors in Alaska and California. The Clear Air Force Station, an Air Force Space Command radar station in central Alaska, has been chosen as the preferred location for the radar.

Secret Pentagon Report Reveals US "Created" ISIS As A "Tool" To Overthrow Syria's President Assad

From the first sudden, and quite dramatic, appearance of the fanatical Islamic group known as ISIS which was largely unheard of until a year ago, on the world's stage and which promptly replaced the worn out and tired al Qaeda as the world's terrorist bogeyman, we suggested that the "straight to beheading YouTube clip" purpose behind the Saudi Arabia-funded Islamic State was a simple one: use the Jihadists as the vehicle of choice to achieve a political goal: depose of Syria's president Assad, who for years has stood in the way of a critical Qatari natural gas pipeline, one which could dethrone Russia as Europe's dominant - and belligerent - source of energy, reaching an interim climax with the unsuccessful Mediterranean Sea military build up of 2013, which nearly resulted in quasi-world war.

Walter Scheib was White House executive chef from 1994 - 2005..... On May 17, the Washington Times said Hillary's biotech/agribusiness ties earned her the nickname "Bride of Frankenfood."

Why the US is Finally Talking to Russia

The Dr. Zbig “Grand Chessboard” Brzezinski-style strategy has always been to lure Russia into another Afghanistan in Ukraine, leading to a collapse of the Russian economy with the Big Prize being a Western takeover of Russia’s oil and natural gas wealth, and by extension Central Asia’s. Ukrainians would be used as cannon fodder, as were Afghans since the 1980s Arab-Afghan jihad.

Yet the Obama administration overplayed its hand, and realpolitik now spells out the deepening of the Russia-China strategic partnership across the entire Eurasian land mass; Eurasia as a prospective, massive commercial emporium stretching from Beijing to Berlin, or from Shanghai to St. Petersburg and beyond towards Rotterdam and Duisburg.

Without the exceptionalist obsession of some key Beltway factions, none of the elements of Cold War 2.0 would be in play, as Russia is a natural ally of the US in many fronts. That in itself reveals the state of “strategic thinking” by the current US administration.

Proven: American vaccines cause permanent brain damage

New research on vaccines quality has been recently conducted. The American scientists proved that vaccines may lead to Vaccine-Induced Brain Damage Syndrome (VIBDS).
That is possible due to toxic additives that were found in the vaccines. Such components as aluminum, mercury, formaldehyde, MSG, antibiotic drugs, etc lead to the permanent cognitive function suppression as well. Each of these ingredients is known as neurotoxin. Once the brain has been poisoned enough by one of these chemicals, that brain will fail to grasp the dangers present across all chemicals.

Opponents to Kiev’s security operation in eastern Ukraine protest in Zurich

About thirty demonstrators held a rally in Zurich, one of the biggest Swiss cities, on Saturday to protest against the Kiev-led security operation in eastern Ukraine. They included pacifists from Zurich, Luzern and other Swiss cities as well as German anti-fascists.
"Though the truce in Ukraine continues, peace has not come and regrettably is nowhere in sight. The Ukrainian side continues shelling the populated localities in Donbas; Western countries continue supporting the incumbent Ukrainian government with weapons and credits and are sending military instructors to Ukraine. The aim of this manifestation is to tell the truth about the real situation in Ukraine and give a rebuff to a barrage of misinformation spread by the local media," Maxim, one of the rally’s organizers, told TASS.
Protest actions against the Kiev authorities policy in Donbas have become regular in Switzerland.

Ukraine’s Ten saboteurs claim responsible for murder of LPR commander

Commander of the 4th police battalion of the self-proclaimed Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR) Alexei Mozgovoi was killed in a special mission of Ukraine’s Teni (Shadows) commandos, the detachment’s head Alexander Gladky said on Sunday.
Earlier, Mozgovoi had survived several attempts on his life. After the last attempt in late March, he said that it was a provocation aimed to destabilise the situation in the self-proclaimed republic.
In early April, the 4th battalion of territorial self-defence was set up on the basis of the Prizrak (Ghost) brigade, following a resolution on the LPR territorial defence signed by the republic’s leader Igor Plotnitsky on March 7, 2015.
Head of LPR Igor Plotnitsky said the murder was in the interests of Kiev, which, he said, instead of moving towards peace under the Minsk agreements, is trying to fail the political stability around the republics in Donbass.

Darwinian Evolution revolutionized the natural sciences. The social sciences have been immune for too long.

Enormous strides have been made in recent years in unraveling the evolutionary basis of human nature.

Ole Dammegård is an author, international speaker, investigator, former journalist, artist and creator of the website Light On Conspiracies.He returns to Red Ice Radio for a special extended segment to speak about his research and thoughts on an extremely controversial subject, the Jewish holocaust. Ole has spent at least 25 years investigating a multitude of conspiracies, and this area of history involves such an incredibly sinister agenda that it is now illegal in some European countries to question the official story or even attempt to investigate the facts. We discuss the sad fact that in the west, where we have a strong tradition of philosophizing and discussion, this story involves so much horror, misery and bloodshed that most will not even dare entertain the notion of a massive cover-up at play.
