Ministers accused of hypocrisy as fracking schemes called in

Shale company Cuadrilla saw an application to frack and test the flow of gas from up to four exploration wells at each of two sites between Blackpool and Preston refused earlier this year by Lancashire County Council.

The firm has appealed against the planning decision, made after officials for the council recommended a scheme at Roseacre Wood should be turned down on traffic impact grounds, but a site at Preston New Road, Little Plumpton should get the go-ahead.

The appeal is due to be heard by a planning inspector at a public inquiry next February, but the Government has decided Communities Secretary Greg Clark will make the decision because the proposals are "of more than local significance".

Are Millennials as broke as the media says they are? The answer is a resounding yes for the following reasons.

In fact, most Millennials are struggling in the current economy. The Millennial generation leads the way in the amount of student debt it carries. Many are stuck in low wage jobs earning so little, they are living with their parents deep into adulthood. How broke are Millennials? Pretty broke when you look at the data.

Plot Thickens: Pentagon Now Facing More Scrutiny Over $766 Million Task Force

The Pentagon is scrambling to justify its actions in restricting the government watchdog investigating a $766-million task force in Afghanistan — with more controversy seemingly erupting by the day. Now there are allegations that Defense Department officials retaliated against a whistleblower and news of several ongoing criminal investigations.

Earlier this month, we reported that the Pentagon was making it difficult for the Special Inspector General for Afghan Reconstruction to investigate reports of gross waste and mismanagement by the now-defunct, five-year Task Force for Business Stability Operations. One of its projects, a gas station, cost 140 times what it should have.

Lobbyists, in Strategy Session, Conclude That Refugee Crisis “Helps Us” Defeat Regulations

In an audio recording of a strategy session obtained by The Intercept, major trade association lobbyists discussed how the refugee crisis has changed the political dynamics in Washington to their advantage.

In the conference call held last week, lobbyists representing a number of high-polluting industries agreed that the battle between Congress and President Obama on refugee policy will give them the cover they need to attach a legislative rider to the omnibus budget bill that rolls back newly expanded clean water regulation.

France and Israël launch a new war in Iraq and Syria

On one hand, the French government is mobilising all its media in order to keep its population focused on the attacks of the 13th November. On the other, with Israël, it is launching a new war in Iraq and Syria. The objective is no longer to overthrow the secular Syrian régime, nor to destroy its army, but to create a colonial state straddling the border between Iraq and Syria, to be managed by the Kurds, in order to apply a stranglehold on the Arab states. The dream of an Israeli nation between the Nile and the Euphrates is back.

History Repeats Itself: USA & Turkey vs. Syria & Russia

It’s ironic how history has a bad habit of repeating itself, maybe because we humans are not creative enough, or some of us, or maybe we are too lazy to invent new issues that will might help make our lives more better or at least less predictable. Some learn from history lessons, others tend to commit the same mistakes again.

Medieval Medicine: 1,000-year-old Onion and Garlic Salve Kills Modern Bacterial SuperBugs

To the surprise and excitement of researchers, a ninth century Anglo-Saxon treatment for eye infections has been used successfully to kill tenacious bacteria cultures. The ancient remedy consisting of onion, garlic, cow bile and wine might be an effective weapon against modern antibiotic-resistant superbugs such as MRSA.

Scientists from the University of Nottingham’s Center for Biomolecular Sciences, UK, and Anglo-Saxon expert Dr. Christina Lee worked together to create the 1,000-year-old remedy found in Bald’s Leechbook, (also known as Medicinale Anglicum) a medical text written in Old English believed to be one of the earliest-known books of medical advice.

And when it comes to supplying weapons to the world, in both absolute dollar and relative (as a % of GDP) terms, nobody even comes close to that paragon of democratic values, the United States of America.

Putin Accuses Obama Of Leaking Flight Details To Turkey After Russia Releases Video Of S-400 SAM Deployment In Syria

As reported two days ago, one of the first decisions a very angry Russia took in the aftermath of the shooting down of its Su-24 by a Turkish F-16 was to dispatch a Moskva guided-missile cruiser off the coast of Syria to provide air cover for its jets operating near Latakia, as well as send an unknown number of ultramodern S-400 (or SA-21 Growler in NATO designation) SAM batteries to Latakia to make sure that the tragic incident from Tuesday never repeats itself by sending Turkey a very clear message that the next time a Turkish warplane engages a Russian jet, Russia will immediate retaliate using ground forces.

Paris Attack: New Data on Police Foreknowledge of Terrorists Raises Questions

Since the November 13 terrorist attacks in Paris, new revelations have provided more evidence that Islamist elements who launched the attack were well known to the intelligence services before the attack that killed 130 people.

These details are of the greatest political significance. They contradict official claims that the attackers evaded the attention of French and European intelligence, and that the only way to prevent new attacks is to accept a permanent state of emergency and police-state measures. If the terrorists were able to plan and execute such a massive, coordinated attack, it was because intelligence agencies did not use the powers they already have to prevent attacks that were carried out by Islamist terrorist forces with which they have close political ties.

Turkey must be removed from NATO: US Army general

Turkey’s downing of a Russian warplane over Syria has proven that the country is a liability to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and must be “ousted” from the Western military alliance, says a retired US Army General.

The former US Army commander further described Turkey as an internal threat to NATO, who “will only cooperate when they have to and they will get as much out of NATO as they can” in terms of weapons and tactics.

Vallely said Turkey is poised to take more provocative measures in near future.

Sultan Erdogan's War on...Russia

Let's cut to the chase. The notion that Turkey's downing of a Russian Su-24 by a made-in-USA F-16 was carried out without either a green light or at least pre-arranged "support" from Washington invites suspension of disbelief.

Turkey is a mere vassal state, the eastern arm of NATO, which is the European arm of the Pentagon. The Pentagon already issued a denial -- which, considering their spectacular record of strategic failures cannot be taken at face value. Plausibly, this might have been a power play by the neocon generals who run the Pentagon, allied with the neocon-infested Obama administration.

The privileged scenario though is of a vassal Turkey led by Sultan Erdogan risking a suicide mission out of its own, current, desperation.

'Most complex malware ever': Security experts smash system that stole cash from millions

“This is POS malware on steroids. We have been examining POS malware…for at least the last eight years, and we have never seen this level of sophistication in terms of development… [Engineers say] it is the most sophisticated framework they have ever put their hands on,” Steve Ward from iSight told The Register.

The ModPOS malware is “wrapped” in multiple layers of encryption to obfuscate its tracks, so when the malware uploads cypher data to a remote server, it becomes next to impossible to find out exactly what data was stolen.

And it is not only the encryption that makes ModPOS so sophisticated. To fish out holders' personal data at the moment when the credentials pass through an electronic point-of-sale device, such as a cash register, the malware also uses a combination of tricks like ‘key-logging’, ‘network monitoring’ and ‘RAM scraping’, Gizmodo reports.

Google is attacking alternative news

We've been mentioning this for a several years and now other alternative news producers are feeling it too.

Google/YouTube is selectively "de-monetizing" the channels that feature alternative news.

Here's a channel we admire the "Next News Network" reporting the problem.

The issue is that it costs cold hard cash to produce videos, host them, handle the emails, and deal with never-ending technical problems.

This doesn't even address the fact that while people are doing this work, they can't earn money from other sources. (No one can be in two places at the same time no matter how hard they try.)

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This has been going on quite a while. Google has refused WRH for advertising and monitization ever since our first videos went up. Google is clearly starting to expand that program to other independent media. The fastest way to bring down a dictatorship is to force them to act like one where everybody can see it!

Putin hints US ‘leaked’ flight path of downed Russian jet to Turkey

Russian President Vladimir Putin accused the US on Friday of “leaking” the flight path of a downed jet to Turkish authorities, The Independent reported.

“The American side, which leads the coalition that Turkey belongs to, knew about the location and time of our planes’ flights, and we were hit exactly there and at that time,” Putin said at a joint news conference with French President Francois Hollande.

Russia threatened economic retaliation against Turkey on Thursday and said it was still awaiting a reasonable explanation for the shooting down of its warplane, but Turkey dismissed the threats as “emotional” and “unfitting”.

Saudi Arabia Planning Mass Execution

Alarm at Reports That Saudi Arabia is Planning a Mass Execution

Two Saudi Arabian newspapers have reported that the kingdom is planning to execute more than 50 people convicted of terrorism, prompting alarm from human-rights group Amnesty International. The media outlet Okaz said that 55 people would be put to death for “terrorist crimes” that caused the deaths of 171 people, 100 of them civilians. A report on the Al-Riyadh website, now deleted, put the number sentenced at 52. Neither organization specified when the executions would take place.

Those scheduled for execution include alleged members of Al-Qaeda. According to Okaz (in Arabic) they are accused of plotting to topple the kingdom and attempting to carry out attacks using small arms and surface-to-air missiles.

Insanity Unbound: Infowars Characterizes "Dancing Israelis" Arrested in New Jersey on 9/11/01 as Arab MUSLIMS

I've had about enough of this propaganda of "Muslims cheering for 9/11." It has gotten to the level of insane propaganda. Infowars.com was giddy after Donald Trump tweeted one of their articles, which was not even original Infowars content, but rather a re-post from Bizpac Review titled 'I Live In Jersey And Trump Is Right: Muslims DID Celebrate On 9/11 In NJ - We Saw It!' The author uses a quote from a Sept. 18, 2001 Washington Post article to verify her claims. However, the interesting thing is that the Washington Post picked up on this and has posted their own extremely thorough and lengthy rebuttal of the author's claims. Since the Post's own story was used as alleged 'proof' of the Muslims cheering, they took quite a bit of time and detail to debunk the myth that "thousands of Muslims were cheering."

Guest Column From George Abert, Formerly Of Air Force Intelligence

Guest Column From George Abert, Formerly Of Air Force Intelligence

Why did Turkey shoot down a Russian Air Force jet?

Turkey is so militarily inferior to Russia that it is unlikely Turkey would commit an act of war against Russia without encouragement from Washington. We might think that Turkey would feel shielded by NATO, but it is doubtful that many European members of NATO would risk nuclear annihiliation by going to war with Russia in order to save Turkey from the consequences of such a reckless and irresponsible act as shooting down a Russian military aircraft and lying about it. Turkey has issued no apology and no believable explanation. Unless Erdogan has lost his mind, Washington is behind the shootdown, and the reason is Washington’s desperation to decode the new Russian technology that gives Russian forces total control over a battlefield, whether on land, sea, or air.

Breaking: Russian Pilot Rescued by Iran’s General Soleimani

Soleimani promised them to return the Russian pilot safe and sound; a promise that was kept in the end, according to the Syrian officer.

After tracing the place of the Russian pilot using his GPS, it was revealed that the pilot was being kept in a place 6km behind the frontline of the clashes between the Syrian army and the opposition.

Six fighters of Hezbollah’s special operation unit and 18 Syrian commandos approached the frontline to carry out the operations and the Russian air force and helicopters concurrently created hellfire in the region and destroyed the terrorists’ headquarters in a way that most of the enemy forces deployed in the region fled the scene and the ground was paved for the special unit’s advance.

The Syrian officer added that every move of the special units was monitored and covered precisely by the Russian satellites in a way that the slightest moves made 100 meters away from the area of operation was reported to them and every moment of the operation was reported to a very high-raking official in the Kremlin (that he thinks was president Putin) and it was clear that he was monitoring the entire operations through satellites from Moscow.

While we patiently dig to find who the on and offshore "commodity trading" middleman are, who cart away ISIS oil to European and other international markets in exchange for hundreds of millions of dollars, one name keeps popping up as the primary culprit of regional demand for the Islamic State's "terrorist oil" - that of Turkish president Recep Erdogan's son: Bilal Erdogan.

The tanker was one of 10 ships recently delivered to the Türkter Shipyard in ?stanbul’s Tuzla district by Palmali Denizcilik.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Turkey President Erdogan is playing innocent about buying oil from ISIS, but his son is putting something black and greasy into his new tanker!

Puerto Rico Is About To Default: Your Complete Guide To An Island Debt Debacle

Last week, we brought you the latest from Puerto Rico’s debt debacle. The commonwealth is desperately trying to restructure some $72 billion in debt while staring down a $354 million bond payment due on December 1.

As we discussed at length on Friday, some $270 million of what’s due next week is GO debt guaranteed by the National Public Finance Guarantee Corp. Defaulting on that is bad news and as Moody’s warned earlier this month, a missed payment on the commonwealth’s highest priority obligations “would likely trigger legal action from creditors, commencing a potentially drawn-out process absent swift federal intervention.”

Donald Sutherland 42-second video: Hunger Games is allegory to warn young people: ‘blind faith in US leaders gets you dead’

*hyperlinks/video live at source*

hat tips: MarkAlzano, Zen Gardener

The Hunger Games film series is popular because its message resonates with many people: psychopathic .01% “leaders” staging children to kill each other with Orwellian rhetoric that such child deaths “bring peace” to society. The richest sector uses 90% of the population as work animals they keep in poverty, under surveillance, and always under armed guards.

Donald Sutherland plays the .01% “leader,” President Snow, who praises the annual child sacrifices as necessary. In this 42-second video, Sutherland is clear about the message of The Hunger Games:

“It is the ‘powers that be’ in the United States of America” that President Snow’s unlawful Orwellian oligarchy represents.
“War is for profit. It’s not to ‘save the world for democracy,’... no, bullshit. It’s for the profit.”
“The young people who will see this film must recognize... that blind faith in their leaders will get you dead.”

2-minute video: Real Muslim leaders laugh at religious fanatics; ‘former’ colonial empire .01% today only demonize Muslims for re-colonialism, and won’t stop until arrested for OBVIOUS War Crimes

bigotry: habitual state of mind with obstinate, irrational, and/or unfair intolerance of ideas, ethnicities, or beliefs different from one’s own. Etymology: “religious hypocrite.”

Anyone familiar with ordinary Muslim families are horrified, disgusted, and motivated to set the record straight from the bigotry of “former” colonial .01% “leaders” and their corporate media (here, here, here). The ongoing Emperor’s New Clothes lies to demonize and blame the victims of colonialism are easy to prove with the facts of the “former” empire nations’ crimes:

Unlawful and lie-began wars.
Crimes Against Humanity for ongoing policy of poverty that’s killed over 400 million human beings just since 1995.

Ukraine will celebrate the anniversary of Hitler’s ally on a state level

The Verkhovna Rada has adopted a decision to celebrate on a state level the 125th birthday of the founder of the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists, Evgeniy Konovalets. The corresponding resolution was supported by 235 deputies and was adopted by the Ukrainian parliament today. In the document, Konovalets was named an “outstanding Ukrainian”... Let us recall that in 1918 he led the repression of Kiev workers who rebelled against the Central Rada and in 1928 he headed the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists which after the ascent of the Nazis to power committed itself to a course of cooperation with Hitler’s Germany. “Time has tested our friendship and cooperation with Germans and has demonstrated that, despite numerous temptations to come to terms with the Poles, we have chosen the only correct orientation,” Konovalets wrote to Sheptitsky of the Ukrainian Greco-Catholic Church...

Turkey refuses to hand materials on attack on Su-24M over to Russia

As a result of concentrated Russian airstrikes against militants, the Syrian governmental troops acquired full control over the mountainous areas in the northern part of the Latakia province. This completely blocked the cross-border deliveries of armaments, ammunition and materiel to the terrorists in this area. Moreover, the Russian aviation controls all main routes, which had been used for supplying the ISIS terrorist groups with weapons, ammunition and materiel in other regions in the north of Syria. Yesterday the Russian military attaché in Turkey visited the General Staff of the Turkish Armed Forces to receive recordings of the alleged radio talks between the crew of the Turkish F-16 fighter and the pilots of the Russian Su-24 bomber on November 23. The Russian military representative was informed that there was no possibility to hand over the materials concerning the attack of the Turkish F-16 fighter on the Russian aircraft on November 23.

McInerney: Turkey Shooting Down Russian Plane Was a 'Very Bad Mistake'

The former Vice Chief of Staff of the U.S. Air Force said that Turkey shooting down a Russian plane was a "very bad mistake and showed poor judgment."

Lt. Gen. Tom McInerney said on "Real Story" that a radar tracking map shows the plane crossing the very tip of Turkey, which he estimated lasted for 20-40 seconds, and on a trajectory back toward Syria.

Turkey Is Lying

We know that Turkey is lying for three reasons.

One reason is that NATO governments lie every time that they open their mouths.

A second reason is that Turkey’s claim that the SU-24 was in Turkey’s airspace for 17 seconds but only traveled 1.15 miles means that the SU-24 was flying at stall speed! The entire Western media was too incompetent to do the basic math!

Russia considers Polish FM's calls to annul Russia-NATO Founding Act extremely dangerous

"I would like to call your attention to a statement made by the Polish foreign minister who called for recognizing as invalid the 1997 Russia-NATO Founding Act," Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova said on Thursday. "We consider such steps to be part of an ideological campaign to brainwash the public opinion in the West ahead of a regular NATO summit in Warsaw," Zakharova stressed. "We certainly consider such statements to be extremely dangerous and extremely provocative. They are evident of desire to make irreversible the alliance’s course towards military deterrence of our country. They can also be regarded as an attempt to legitimize NATO’s attempts to change the existing balance of forces in Europe," the Russian diplomat said.

Damascus to give preference to Russian companies in economic projects — foreign minister

Syrian authorities expect Russian companies to participate in development of oil fields in Syria, the country’s Foreign Affairs Minister Walid Muallem at a meeting with Russia’s Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin. Muallem said a decision has been taken "to give preference to Russian companies in economic projects in Syria, especially in construction and revival of the country and oil production." "We have information that offshore oil and gas fields off the Syrian coast have huge potential," the minister added. He also said one Russian company has already signed a respective contract, and Syrian authorities expect that "other companies will follow suit as we’re ready to grant any benefits to Russian companies." "Hopefully, not only Russian war-craft but also oil platforms will be present off the Syrian coasts," the minister said.

Tokyo counts on Russia’s assistance in dealing with aftermath of Fukushima accident

Eguchi said that Japanese technologies were not sufficient for dealing with the aftermath of the disaster, and the country needed technical cooperation with various countries in this matter. "Cooperation between Russia and Japan on nuclear energy is actively developing. After the Fukushima accident cooperation between our two countries to deal with its aftermath intensifies, and now we are considering the use of technologies involving Russian experts for overcoming the aftermath of this disaster". He added that Japan "adhered to the strategy of the overall safety check in accordance with the new requirements." In 2014, the Japanese government chose Russian companies as partners in the implementation of the pilot project to clean up radioactive water at the Fukushima-1 nuclear power plant. The installation is to be built by March 31, 2016. Currently, talks are in progress with the Japanese side on the beginning of work to design a full-scale installation.

Human resources: Walmart hired Lockheed Martin to keep tabs on employees

Walmart hired global security giant Lockheed Martin a few years ago to monitor activism in its massive workforce, according to new documents. The defense contractor tracked employees’ social media and reported protest participation to the retail giant.

Lockheed Martin, the world’s largest defense contractor, provided Walmart, the world’s largest retailer, with intelligence-gathering and surveillance services in 2012, according to a lengthy report by Bloomberg Businessweek.
