Saudi channel publishes photo ‘from Yemen’… but really from first Gulf war

The Saudi TV channel Al Arabiya has come under fire for publishing a fake photo online. On Monday, it posted the following photo to its official Twitter account. The description, in Arabic, reads: “Al Arabiya exclusive: Saudi Arabia’s Operation Decisive Storm destroys a Houthi military convoy in Saada [Yemen].”

There’s just one problem: that photo is an iconic photo from the first Gulf War. According to information provided by the US Department of Defense, which put the image in the public domain, it was taken by a military photographer on March 4, 1991 during Operation Desert Storm. The photo shows Iraqi military vehicles that were destroyed by coalition forces.

Readers quickly recognized the photo and started deriding the channel on Twitter. The post was deleted on Monday, but it remained online in cached form.

FDA Pushing To Regulate Homeopathy Out of Existence

Dr. Martha Grout, MD, MD(H)
Activist Post

Why is there a sudden push by the FDA to label homeopathic remedies as dangerous? Why is there a need to regulate substances that have been used for hundreds of years with out any issues? What does the FDA have to gain?

The FDA has published two documents recently, which suggest that WAR is being declared on the profession of homeopathic medicine – or at least on the manufacture of homeopathic remedies, which comes to the same thing in the end. What is a homeopath without homeopathic remedies?...

From Gaza To Southampton – We Are All Palestinians

For the second time in just a month, a British academic institution has been intimidated by an orchestrated Zionist lobby.

Yesterday we learned that Southampton University has decided to withdraw its permission to hold the academic conference on International Law and the State of Israel. The decision was taken on the grounds of “health and safety” with the university claiming it did not have enough resources to mitigate the “risks.”

This comes just one month after the Royal Northern College Of Music cancelled a concert of mine for similar safety reasons. Like Southampton University, the RNCM was bullied by a violent pro-Israel group and it took us only a few hours to learn that the spokesperson for the pro-Israeli body was an infamous crook as well as a football hooligan (see here).

This US State is on the Verge of a Silver & Gold Revolution!

First though, a short bit of background. In 2011, Utah became the first State to take a step towards constitutional money again, when Governor Gary Herbert signed legislation removing all state sales taxes on gold and silver purchases, and declared bullion to be legal tender. Many other states soon followed suit, including: Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Texas, to name a few. Other states can be checked at statelegaltender.com.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And oddly enough, many of these are the states being targeted for Jade Helm this summer!

5 Reasons Why Scientology Keeps Winning

Thanks to HBO's continual insistence on killing it in any given genre, the documentary Going Clear shocked the world last weekend with the revelation that an alien-worshiping religious group founded by a tax-evading sci-fi writer wasn't so great after all. Yes, Scientology sure is America's scary uncle, right down to the fact that it refuses to leave no matter how many court orders get sent.

So how is it that a group almost universally accepted as a grifting cult could still be able to operate legally? The reasons are more diabolically genius than you think, even if you watched the documentary -- because while the Church of Scientology is just regular ol' crazy when it comes to most things, it is crazy like a fox when it comes to legal matters.

4 senators urge Obama not to impose peace conditions on Israel

Four senators sent a letter to President Barack Obama urging him not to bypass direct negotiations and impose conditions on Israel in an effort to create a two-state solution.

The senators — Ben Cardin (D-Md.), Susan Collins (R-Maine), Mark Warner (D-Va.) and Roger Wicker (R-Miss.) — wrote in a letter Monday that while they are committed to a two-state solution that would keep Israel secure and ensure economic opportunity for the Palestinians, they are against efforts to let the United Nations and other international bodies impose the terms.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The residents of Maryland, Maine, Virginia, and Mississippi need to get on the phones to those Senators and tell them their jobs are Maryland, Maine, Virginia, and Mississippi, and not Israel! Because there is an election next year and I don't think "Friend of Israel" is the vote-getter it used to be.

Boehner playing dangerous game by mixing Israel, race

Speaker John Boehner’s (R-Ohio) trip to Israel this week is so blatantly political that even the avowedly impartial Associated Press describes it as looking “like a jab at the White House.”

It is worse than that. President Obama can jab back in any political fight.

The real issue here is the way Boehner is recklessly sowing division along party lines on Israel. He is also — intentionally or not — heightening the silent but simmering racial tensions that increasingly divide Americans on the subject.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Boehner is proving that he is an Israeli stooge, and Obama has every right to arrest Boehner and every member of Congress currently in violation of the Logan Act and toss them in prison!

How Israel’s military stopped Netanyahu attacking Iran

A release of top-secret documents indicates that Israel’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, has exaggerated – and possibly lied – with his repeated claims that Iran is on the brink of a nuclear bomb.

In September 2012, Netanyahu, armed with a cartoon, put it very bluntly at the UN General Assembly:

By next spring, at most by next summer at current enrichment rates, [Iran] will have finished the medium enrichment and move on to the final stage. From there, it’s only a few months, possibly a few weeks before they get enough enriched uranium for the first bomb.

However, as Netanyahu spoke, his military and intelligence services were assessing that Tehran was not enriching uranium to a level beyond that needed for a civil programme. They conclude: “Iran at this stage is not performing the activity necessary to produce weapons.”

Netanyahu: Now is time for international community to stand ground for better deal with Iran

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Wednesday that now was the time for the international community to stand its ground for a better deal with Iran, in a special press statement in Jerusalem shortly after negotiations resumed in Lausanne over Tehran's nuclear program.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This from the leader of a nation that has nuclear weapons, refuses to sign the nuclear non-proliferation agreement, refuses IAEA inspections, was caught trying to sell a clandestine nuclear weapon to the former government of South Africa, and a history of constant belligerence to neighboring nations. Netanyahu demands the world get a better deal from Iran, which HAS signed the nuclear non-proliferation agreement, DOES allow IAEA inspections, and has not initiated a war of conquest against another nation in over 200 years!

Divestment referendum blocked at Northeastern

Activists at Northeastern University in Boston say they have been silenced by their student government after it blocked a divestment referendum from appearing on an upcoming election ballot.

Hundreds of mourners gathered outside of al-Shifa hospital to protest the killing of Tawfiq Abu Reyaleh, a 34-year-old fisherman shot by the Israeli navy just hours before.

Along with his shipmates on the overnight shift, the late father of five was struck by a bullet when Israeli forces opened fire on their boat on 7 March, as they sailed within the six-nautical mile limit that Israel has imposed on Gaza’s sea vessels, according to the fishermen.

Abu Reyaleh was survived by his wife and four children, who live in northern Gaza.

Truck Hits Utility Pole, Thousands of People’s Smart Meters Explode

Palestinians join International Criminal Court

Palestinians have formally become a member of the International Criminal Court (ICC), a membership that enables Palestinians to sue Israeli officials for war crimes.

The Palestinian Authority officially joined the ICC on Wednesday, becoming the 123rd member of the Hague-based court.

The membership enables the Palestinians to file lawsuits against Israeli officials over crimes committed on Palestinian territory, including offenses committed during Tel Aviv’s war on the besieged Gaza Strip last year.

The Palestinian decision to join the ICC was made in January after decades of negotiations with Israel failed to put an end to Tel Aviv’s policy of expanding settlements on the occupied Palestinian lands.

In response to the decision, Tel Aviv cut off more than USD 120 millions in tax funds to the Palestinian Authority.

North Dakota launches oil rules hoping to curb U.S. rail disasters

North Dakota will from Wednesday require the more-than 1.2 million barrels of crude extracted each day from the state's Bakken shale formation be run through machines that remove volatile gases linked to recent crude-by-rail disasters.

The controversial step is designed to abrogate the damage North Dakota crude oil - 70 percent of which is transported via rail - can cause during derailments.

In the absence of concrete regulations from the U.S. Department of Transportation, North Dakota's new rules become the de facto national standard on the treatment of crude before tankcar loading.

Chinese scientists are mulling the construction of a solar power station 36,000 kilometers above ground.

If realized, it will surpass the scale of the Apollo project and the International Space Station, and be the largest-ever space project.

The power station would be a super spacecraft on a geosynchronous orbit equipped with huge solar panels. The electricity generated would be converted to microwaves or lasers and transmitted to a collector on Earth.

With its Internet Preferences program, AT&T hopes to turn customer data into extra revenue. The company plans to compile the information about online activity — what users are Googling, which sites they favor, and what products they click on — to sell higher-priced personalized advertisements.

AD Networks Ripe for Abuse via Malvertising

Major websites have been identified as hosting malvertising, cutting a wide swathe across the Internet, including big news and entertainment sites, search engines and many more. The scale at which campaigns can ramp up is undeniable–if hackers so choose. Their profits from these campaigns too are not limited to click fraud, which until the last six to nine months has been the most damaging outcome of malvertising forays.

Almost all campaigns lead to exploit kits, and some kits such as Angler are rigged with ransomware that can force users to cough up a few hundred dollars via Bitcoin to regain control of their machines, or worse, unlock files encrypted by the malware. Invincea, for example, told Threatpost it has discovered that malvertising displaying on popular real estate resource Zillow.com was recently redirecting users to sites hosting Cryptowall ransomware.

War With Iran, by the Numbers

Sen. John McCain and others on the American Right are in favor of dropping those pesky negotiations with Iran and just bombing their nuclear enrichment sites.

Those who think such bombing runs would be the end of the story, however, are fooling themselves. Bombing Iraq in 1991 and the no-fly zone had a lot to do with taking the USA down the path to a ground war in 2003. Bombing now will almost certainly lead to a similar ground war.

‘Police lives matter’ pastor accused of rape threats: ‘You have to be the dumbest f-cking liberal c—’

In a tweet on Monday, Van Fossen posted an email from someone named “Dave Wendt” who expressed opposition to her column with violent rape rhetoric.

“OMG, you have to be the dumbest f*cking liberal c*nt I’ve heard yet,” the email said. “Get off the drugs bitch, and go check yourself into rehab. LOL.”

“Or better yet, you’re pretty hot,” the letter continued. “So how about if I come over and rape you with a few of my friends. WHEW! At least I won’t have to worry about you calling the police.”

Through a little sleuthing, several Twitter users speculated that the author of the email may have been Pastor David Wendt of the First Evangelical Lutheran Church in La Crosse, Wisconsin. His Facebook page features the pro-law enforcement slogan “police lives matter,” support for gun rights, and frequent criticism of President Barack Obama. Church records obtained by Raw Story also showed that his wife’s name matched a name on the email address that targeted Van Fossen.

US seeks to eventually partition Sri Lanka

We need to consider the contents of the resolution. It clearly confers powers on the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights to investigate, without mentioning an 'international' investigation. But, the Office of the High Commissioner is international and so the reference is to an international investigation.

It also gives three clear mandates. First is to assess progress towards accountability and reconciliation and a second – stemming from the previous resolution – to monitor national processes. The third and the new inclusion is a mandate to investigate alleged violations of human rights and related crimes.

5mn Venezuelans sign petition against US aggression & interference

Rejecting what they see as interference in Venezuela’s internal affairs, over five million people across the country have signed a petition demanding that the US president repeals his executive order that declared Caracas an extraordinary security threat.

“We have collected more than 5 million signatures and we want to call on the Venezuelan people to keep on going to reach 10 million,” Jorge Rodriguez, mayor of Caracas and coordinator of the initiative told Venezolana de Television.

For the past week plazas, government offices and buildings opened their doors seeking to collect some 10 million signatures against Washington’s policy towards the Latin American country.

“Our intention is to deliver the collected signatures to the President of the United States, Barack Obama, as clear evidence that the people of Venezuela reject the crude interference in our internal affairs,” Rodriguez added.

MH17 investigation going off in ‘wrong direction’ could embarrass ‘many powerful people’

There is so much political pressure over the MH17 crash in Ukraine that investigators would rather conclude that no one really knows what happened than make several powerful people look foolish, believes Robert Parry, editor of Consortium News.

More than eight months since Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 was shot down above war-torn eastern Ukraine, speculation in international media is only adding fuel to the blame game, while no actual evidence to back claims has been released.

The US intelligence community is failing to share its own discoveries into the crash, fearing it will lead the investigation in the "wrong" direction, Robert Parry told RT.

The 4 Forms of Political and Corporate Lies

“To see what is in front of one’s nose needs a constant struggle.” ~ George Orwell

As with most societal dynamics, there are various approaches and thought-processes we can employ to help us make sense of the unpredictable nonsense that constitutes today’s politics and corporate spin.

There are four forms of political lies.

Those involved in politics – the politicians, reporters and corporate lobbyists – are constantly lying. We all know it, we just don’t all appreciate the scope of it. Of course, there is outright lying which might be done in any number of ways, including complete conjuration and outright elimination of important information. However corporate heads, politicians and their faithful media normally prefer more nuanced presentations to their lies — so it pays to understand just how they go about it.

Four Forms of Political Lies

There are four basic types of political lies, which immediately correlate to the four basic forms of arithmetic.

BPA Cuts Fertility in Fish Three Generations Later

The offspring of fish exposed to Bisphenol A (BPA) have decreased fertility and increased embryo mortality three generations later. A new study suggests that exposed humans and their children could be affected in the same way.

BPA is a chemical that is used in a variety of consumer products, including water bottles, dental composites, and resins used to line metal food and beverage containers. Aquatic environments such as rivers and streams often become reservoirs for these endocrine-disrupting chemicals.

“BPA has been proven to mimic the function of natural hormones in animals and humans,” says Ramji Bhandari, an assistant research professor of biological sciences at the University of Missouri and a visiting scientist with the US Geological Survey.

MEGA BEX ALERT - Antarctica just experienced its warmest day ever

Global warming caused the northern tip of Antarctica to nearly reach room temperature last week, with a record-breaking high of 63.5 F (17.5 C) being recorded at Argentina's Esperanza Base on Tuesday.

The weather there was warmer than in the UK, where British Summer Time has just begun.

Antarctica has been steadily heating up due to global warming in recent years, rising about 5 F (2.8 C) in the last half century, according to the British Antarctic Survey.

Back in 2000, the global warming hoaxsters were proclaiming that "Snowfalls Are Now a Thing of the Past (UK Indepdnent, March 20, 2000)

Having been embarrassed by several record setting winters in a row, but unable to admit they were wrong, the Carbonazis are now claiming to find proof of global warming in areas so remote they do not have to worry about anyone being able to double-check them.
