Automakers With The Lowest (And Highest) Recall Rates

While it may come as no shock that luxury-car maker Mercedes-Benz came out atop the list of least-recalled brands, with an average 0.41 units recalled per vehicle sold, General Motors, with nearly 100 million vehicles recalled since 1985, actually placed third-best, with 0.65 cars and trucks recalled per unit sold.

Of the 15 major automakers surveyed, Hyundai Motor Company can lay claim to having the worst ratio, with 1.15 vehicles recalled for every model sold since it introduced the Excel to U.S. buyers in 1986. Other brands found to have recalled more cars than they sold in the U.S. over the last 30 years (needless to say this represents a number of cars for which multiple campaigns were initiated) include Mitsubishi, Volkswagen and Volvo; Chrysler broke even, so to speak, with a one-to-one sales-to-recall ratio.

Twitter said it has informed the stock exchange, and was 'investigating the leak'.

Omega-3 fatty acids reduce toxic effects of chemotherapy - MSM reports this as a bad thing!

According to many media reports, a recent study in JAMA Oncology found that omega-3 fatty acids can reduce the effectiveness of cancer treatment.

"Cancer patients who eat herring and mackerel or take omega-3 supplements may end up resistant to chemotherapy, a study has warned," writes the Daily Mail.

The same stories have reported the researchers' recommendation that people undergoing chemotherapy refrain from eating oily fish or taking fish oil or omega-3 supplements on the day of their treatment.

But the study in question found no such thing, while other studies have actually suggested that omega-3s might reduce the side effects of cancer drugs while increasing their effectiveness.

AT&T Bills 83 Year Old $24,298 for AOL Dial Up

An 83-year-old Los Angeles man claims that AT&T charged him $24,298 -- for using his AT&T landline to access AOL service. According to the Los Angeles Times, Ron Dorff is one of 2.2 million users that still pay for AOL dial-up service. Dorff historically accesses the service via an AT&T landline, which he pays $51 a month for.

Out of the blue, Dorff was socked with a $8,596.57 bill, then a $15,687.64 charge, at which point he navigates the usual gauntlet of "right hand, meet left hand" phone support and technician no shows.

Though the Times article is murky on this point, the 83-year-old's modem was apparently misconfigured to dial a long distance number, racking up massive charges while the elderly man remained online.

But most Americans don’t realize this because the official unemployment numbers are extremely misleading. In fact, Clifton says that the official 5.6 percent unemployment rate is a “big lie”.

According to the report, the ship was seized at the request of Iran's Ports and Maritime Organization, which had financial disagreements with the owner of the vessel.

Finnish military fires depth charges at suspected submarine

The Finnish military fired on Tuesday handheld underwater depth charges as a warning against a suspected submarine in waters near Helsinki, an incident that comes amid growing military tensions with neighboring Russia.

The navy said it noticed an underwater target on Monday and again on Tuesday morning and fired some warning charges - the size of grenades.

Finland, which shares an 833 mile (1,340 km) border with Russia, has been increasingly worried about its powerful neighbor after a year of Russian air force sorties and military border exercises.

New World Order: The Founding Fathers

“One wintry afternoon in February 1891, three men were engaged in earnest conversation in London. From that conversation were to flow consequences of the greatest importance for the British Empire and to the world as a whole.”

So begins Professor Carroll Quigley’s book The Anglo American Establishment. It may read like a John Le Carre thriller, but this was no spy fiction. The three staunch British Imperialists who met in London that day, Cecil Rhodes, William Stead and Lord Esher, were soon joined by Lords Rothschild, Salisbury, Rosebery and Milner, men whose financial, political, and administrative powers set them apart. Some of these names may not be familiar to you, but that is a mark of the absolute success of this group. From the outset they insisted on secrecy, operated in secret and ensured that their influence was airbrushed from history. They believed that white men of Anglo-Saxon descent rightly sat at the top of the racial hierarchy and they fully understood the impending threat from a burgeoning Germany whose modern, expanding economy had begun to challenge British hegemony on the world stage.

The above named elites drew up a plan for a secret society that aimed to renew the bond between Great Britain and the United States [1] and bring all habitable portions of the world under their influence and control.

Embracing the Saudi War on Yemen

Saudis have been helped by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who has relied on the powerful Israel Lobby and his own rhetoric to divert the U.S. Congress from a focus on Al-Qaeda and its hyper-brutal spinoff, the Islamic State, to Iran, which both Saudi Arabia and Israel have designated their primary regional enemy.

Fearful of further offending the powerful Saudi-Israeli alliance, President Obama is deploying the U.S. Navy to seal off poverty-stricken Yemen so the Saudi air force has free rein to pummel its regional rivals from the air while the population faces a humanitarian crisis on the ground, reports Robert Parry.

The Message of Anzac: Put Out More Flags, or Shut Up

Ray loathed warmongering and would approve of my second hero. This is Scott McIntyre, a young SBS soccer journalist who, in four now famous Tweets, set out to counter the authoritarian sludge that demands that Australians celebrate the centenary of a criminal waste of life in the British imperial invasion of Turkey a century ago — in which Australians and New Zealanders, the “Anzacs”, took part — rather than recognise unpalatable truths about the past and present.

Opportunistic politicians and journalists have turned this melancholy event into a death cult that puzzles foreigners. Federal governments have spent almost $400 million promoting it as a fake patriotism – more than Britain, France, Germany and Canada combined: countries that lost many more men in the 1914-18 bloodfest. Today, the military and venal militarism are virtually off-limits for real public criticism.

Why? Australia, a nation without enemies, is now spending $28billion a year on the military and war and armaments in order to fulfil a tragic, entirely colonial and obsequious role, now as Washington’s “deputy sheriff” in the Asia-Pacific.

Civil Unrest and Riots: Why You MUST Be Armed to be Truly Prepared

If the scene in Baltimore, Maryland this week gives you a sense of deja vu, flashing back to the fall when Ferguson, Missouri was under siege, then this should be telling you something.

There's a distinct pattern when society breaks down, and as our society becomes more desperate, poverty-stricken, and lacking of moral compass, this trend will become more obvious. Note that the "lacking of moral compass" part doesn't just refer to the thugs rioting and looting, but also to the cops who think that their badges give them permission to behave like street thugs, too.

If you're not armed, it's time to take a long, hard look at how you're going to protect your family.

Fighting escalates across Yemen, air strikes on capital Sanaa

There were at least five air strikes on military positions and an area near the presidential palace compound in the Houthi-held capital Sanaa at dawn on Sunday, while warships pounded an area near the port of the southern city of Aden, residents said.

"The explosions were so big they shook the house, waking us and our kids up. Life has really become unbearable in this city," a Sanaa resident who gave his name as Jamal told Reuters.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Shame on Reuters (who have banned me from commenting on their site) for continuing to spin that the conflict in Yemen is somehow Iran's fault. Back in 2012, the US intervened and kicked out President Salah, installing a US puppet ruler Hadi. The people of Yemen tried to kick Hadi out and bring back Salah and that is why the US, using Saudi Arabia as a proxy, is bombing Yemen, to punish them for daring to think Yemen should be run for the benefit of the Yemenite people.

And, while the blood is still wet in Yemen, it looks like the US, using Egypt as a proxy, is about to attack Libya for trying to kick out the US puppet ruler imposed on them following the US invasion and murder of Gaddafi.

The Sovereign Nation of Shetland

Sovereign Nation of Shetland follows SNP lead.

Following the SNP's lead, the Sovereign Nation of Shetland (the SNS) is promoting a manifesto in an election it cannot possibly win, but in which it may be able to exert some influence. Just as the SNP is intent on independence from the UK, the SNS manifesto promotes the benefits of independence from Scotland. What's good for the goose is apparently good for the gander.

Spokesman Stuart Hill said: “Official figures reveal that Shetland would be £76 million better off – that's £7,600 per household. Half-price petrol and 20%off goods and services, plus fair money, fair justice and most of all fair democracy are additional benefits. When you add North Sea oil to the mix and the fact that Shetland has a £131 million per year positive trade balance with the rest of the world, independence does not seem so impossible or frightening – unless viewed from the UK perspective.”

Just 42 percent of the residents in Freddie Gray’s neighborhood are employed

Freddie Gray, the 25-year-old black man who died in police custody, was born into Sandtown’s literally toxic ghetto, according to a lawsuit he and his two sisters filed in 2008. The Sun’s Jean Marbella writes that the family claimed damaging lead levels in their blood as children led to “multiple educational, behavioral and medical problems.” They settled in 2010 for an undisclosed sum.

Whether because of lead or even more intractable structural problems, Sandtown has been unable to shake the kinds of economic woes prevalent in other predominantly African-American inner city neighborhoods.

Here are the terrifying facts about Sandtown, according to U.S. Census tract data.

— Just 42 percent of residents are employed, compared to the national average of 59 percent.

— Thirty-three percent of residential properties are vacant or abandoned.

— Just 54 percent of its residents are even in the labor force, even though 77 percent of residents are between 20 and 64 years old.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If you don't have a healthy environment, meaningful education, leading to meaningful jobs and the ability to better yourself, you are in a very, very bad situation indeed.

Hopelessness, exacerbated by police brutality, will ultimately lead to violence.

And it is very obvious that Baltimore PD has some industrial strength soul-searching to do about not letting officers, sworn to uphold the law, break it by brutalizing suspects, and not following standards and practices to the letter.

The late President Kennedy said it best: "When peaceful revolution is impossible, violent revolution is inevitable."

Paul Volcker Invests in Foreign Banks as He Lectures on U.S. Bank Reform

Last Monday, former Fed Chairman Paul Volcker held a press conference at the National Press Club to release his nonprofit’s plan for reforming U.S. bank regulation. Volcker’s plan includes elevating the Federal Reserve to even greater heights as a super regulator of a consolidated system. That’s exactly the opposite of what Congress has in mind as it holds hearings on fatal conflicts of interests between the Fed and Wall Street.

RON PAUL EXPOSES THE REAL WAR ON THE MIDDLE CLASS

Few things would benefit the middle class more than ending the Federal Reserve. The Federal Reserve’s inflationary policies erode middle-class families’ standards of living while benefiting the financial and political elites. Middle-class Americans may gain some temporary benefits from Federal Reserve created booms, but they also suffer from the inevitable busts.

As I write this, the dollar still reigns as the world’s reserve currency. However, there are signs that other economies are moving away from using the dollar as the reserve currency, and this trend will accelerate as the Federal Reserve continues to pump more fiat currency into the economy and as resentment toward our foreign policy grows. Eventually, international investors will lose confidence in the US economy, the dollar will lose its reserve currency status, and the dollar bubble will burst.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That slippage of the US dollar as the world's reserve currency may well be closer than many people think.

Bans on “Assault Weapons,” Firearm Magazines Can Be Based on Feelings, Rules Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals

Adding insult to injury, the majority found that “[i]f a ban on semi?automatic guns and large?capacity magazines reduces the perceived risk from a mass shooting, and makes the public feel safer as a result, that’s a substantial benefit.”

Britain experienced the same stupidity, passing a gun ban because it made people feel they were safer. In fact, they were not. Crime increased significantly as criminals were free to prey on a populati8on they knew were disarmed. Despite the increase in crime, Britain kept their gun ban in place, again upon the excuse that people felt safer, even if in point of fact they were not at greater risk.

Macau authorities deny CIA tried to assassinate Snowden

Authorities in the Chinese region of Macau have denied news reports that Chinese Special Forces averted an attempt by the United States Central Intelligence Agency to kill or capture American defector Edward Snowden. The reports were initially published on March 8 on the website of China News Service, China’s second-largest state-owned news agency after Xinhua. The news agency, which serves China’s Special Administrative Regions of Hong Kong and Macau, said that a secretive unit of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army held a private function to celebrate its success against an alleged attempt by the CIA to kill Snowden. The American former computer expert worked for the CIA and the National Security Agency before defecting to Russia in the summer of 2013. Prior to arriving in Russia, however, Snowden first sought refuge in Hong Kong, where he stayed until June 23.

Benjamin Fulford: Fall of the 6,000-Year Old System of Babylonian Debt Slavery

What we are witnessing is the fall of the 6,000-year old system of Babylonian debt slavery. The human ants are running around in increasing panic because they sense something big has happened. Most are blind so they cannot see that the eye at the top of the human ant-hill, or pyramid, has been overthrown. There is chaos because the people at the top cannot agree on what to do next.

Here is a humble suggestion on how the end the chaos and start an unprecedented era of prosperity. First of all, we need to replace the God we call money with a symbol of the world. A new currency would be issued, call it say a Mundo or ???and, for a limited period of time, it could be exchanged on a one for one basis with dollars or euros. The U.S. and the EU could then replace their currencies with something new, perhaps something like the greenback. The old dollar and euro would become something to be found in curiosity and antique shops. Other national or regional currencies could remain as they are.

Tulsa Undersheriff Resigns Amid Allegations He Falsified Training Records Of Eric Harris' Killer

Tulsa World reports that recently released documents show Albin falsified Bates' training records and quashed his colleagues' concerns about the deputy.

Sheriff Stanley Glanz announced Albin's resignation today at a County Board of Commissioners meeting.

Bates, a 73-year-old insurance executive, shot and killed Harris on April 2. Bates says he meant to Taser Harris but grabbed his handgun by mistake. Bates was charged with second-degree homicide April 14, and turned himself in.

This is the same tracking map, but with the shipping channels and Iranian territorial waters overlaid. From this it is obvious that the M/V Maersk Tigris was following the normal shipping route, but then did indeed alter course to starboard and into Iranian territorial waters. The only question is why? The tracking system indicates accurate GPS data was being received by the ship, so spoofing is out. There are no geographic features justifying a turn to starboard. Was the Captain of the M/V Maersk Tigris "persuaded" by the US Government to trigger a confrontation?

Benjamin Fulford – “Pentagon Plays Military Card Against China as Washington D.C. Struggles for Cash, Fudging Accounts to Keep from Bankruptcy”

The bankruptcy of the West was postponed again last week with fudged accounting keeping both Washington D.C. and Greece (therefore the EU) from defaulting as high stakes negotiations over a new financial system continue.
To bolster is bargaining position, the Pentagon is undertaking some large scale moves against China. Pentagon sources say last week’s earthquake in Nepal was generated using high energy electronic waves. The aim was to send a message to both China and India prior to US Defense Secretary Ashton Carter’s planned trip to India next month, the sources say. The basic message was “only the Pentagon can defend India against China.”

Jon Stewart rips CNN for ignoring Baltimore protests to cover the White House Correspondents’ Dinner

Jon Stewart had some choice words for CNN, which spent Saturday night hovering over the red carpet for the White House Correspondents’ Dinner and talking about Lena Dunham–while only forty miles away, Baltimore was torn apart by violent protests over the death of 25-year-old Freddie Gray.

“Why are we watching this meaningless circle jerk?” Stewart demanded.

Did life begin in underwater volcanoes? Hot sea vents spontaneously produce building blocks needed for organisms to develop

Scientists have long pondered whether hot vents on the seabed could have been where life on Earth began.

And now chemists in London have discovered that such vents emit geothermally heated water that does create the kind of environment needed to produce organic molecules necessary for life.

Ukrainian Army asking Donbass self-defence to open fire at Azov battalion

Ukrainian Armed Forces’ officers use open communication lines to make contacts with the officers of self-defence forces of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic, in the course of which they ask to open fire at the highly controversial Azov ‘volunteer’ battalions, Eduard Basurin, the spokesman for the DPR Defence Ministry said.

They accompany their requests by references to the battalion’s total uncontrollability.

Yemen Crisis: This Exotic War Will Soon Become Europe's Problem

Yemen is short of many things, but weapons is not one of them. Yemenis own between 40 and 60 million guns, according to a report by UN experts published earlier this year. This should be enough for Yemen’s 26 million people, although the experts note that demand for grenades that used to cost $5, handguns ($150) and AK-47s ($150) has increased eightfold. Whatever else happens, the war in Yemen is not going to end because any of the participants are short of weaponry.
Yemeni politics is notoriously complicated and exotic, with shifting alliances in which former enemies embrace and old friends make strenuous efforts to kill each other. But this exoticism does not mean that the war in Yemen, where the Saudis started bombing on 26 March, is irrelevant to the rest of the world. Already the turmoil there is a breeding ground for al-Qaeda type attacks such as that on Charlie Hebdo in Paris.

Reports claim Iran 'seized' US cargo ship, Pentagon says it's Marshall Islands-flagged

The Iranian Navy has reportedly seized a US ship with 34 crew members on board, for violating Iran's waters in the Persian Gulf. The Pentagon denies the vessel belongs to the US, claiming it is registered in the Marshall Islands.

A Pentagon spokesman has confirmed that Iranian forces boarded the Marshall Island-flagged Maersk Tigris vessel after patrol boats fired warning shots across its bow and ordered it deeper into Iranian waters, Reuters reports.

The vessel initially ignored the warning but complied after the shots were fired, U.S. Army Colonel Steve Warren said.

Botched provocation?

BEX ALERT - Iran seizes U.S. ship, 34 sailors

Iran has fired at a U.S. cargo ship and has directed it to Bandar Abbas port on the southern coast of Iran, Al Arabiya News Channel has reported on Tuesday.

Up to 34 American sailors are believed to be onboard the ship, Al Arabiya reported.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The vessel in question is flagged to the Marshall Islands and no Americans are known to be aboard.

So, is someone trying to cause trouble with this "Iran seizes US ship" headline? Did Iran thwart a covert operation that the US now had to deny?

How This Debt-Addicted World Could Go The Way Of The Mayans

US Postal Service is CRAP!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In yet another symptom of the decline and fall of the American Empire, the US postal service has, for the second time this year, lost a package headed towards me routed through their Richmond, CA sorting center. Attempts to complain about the missing package are met with a non-working customer complaint email system, as seen above. The Richmond center has been a source of major complaints about missing/stolen items for years and every 6 months the USPS issues a statement that the problem has been solved, and we quickly learn it has not. America the greatest nation on earth? They can't even deliver the mail reliably any more!

What is TTIP? And six reasons why the answer should scare you

So I don’t know about you, but I’m scared. I would vote against TTIP, except… hang on a minute… I can’t. Like you, I have no say whatsoever in whether TTIP goes through or not. All I can do is tell as many people about it as possible, as I hope, will you. We may be forced to accept an attack on democracy but we can at least fight against the conspiracy of silence.

Greece €400 Million Short For Wage And Pension Payments, Rushes To Pass Troika-Friendly Laws

There was a brief bout of Greek risk-on euphoria following yesterday's latest twist in the winding road to the Greek insolvency, in which the Greek finance minister Varoufakis became the latest sacrificial scapegoat to be "Nav Sarao-ed" to the angry gods of the Troika, and has been henceforth kicked out of any negotiations with the Greek "institution" creditors.

The core problem for Greece, however, remains: namely that it is still completely out of money, and as we learned yesterday, the local municipalities have mutinied, and told the government they would not hand over their cash to the central bank without their own conditions being met first, and certainly not before May 7 which may well be too late for Greece.

John Deere's Weird Idea of 'Ownership'

It's official: John Deere and General Motors want to eviscerate the notion of ownership. Sure, we pay for their vehicles. But we don't own them. Not according to their corporate lawyers, anyway.

In a particularly spectacular display of corporate delusion, John Deere—the world's largest agricultural machinery maker —told the Copyright Office that farmers don't own their tractors. Because computer code snakes through the DNA of modern tractors, farmers receive "an implied license for the life of the vehicle to operate the vehicle."

It's John Deere's tractor, folks. You're just driving it. – Wired, April 21, 2015

Report: Egypt Preparing Large Assault Against ISIS in Libya Despite Opposition From Obama

Egypt is getting ready to launch a large air and ground attack against the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) in eastern Libya DebkaFile reports, quoting military and intelligence sources.

The Obama administration is reportedly opposed to the operation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Debka is not totally trustworthy and in one specific case they are clearly in error. Obama is not opposed to attacks on Libya. Libya, like Yemen (and Iraq) is trying to kick out the US puppet ruler imposed on them after the invasion and murder of Gaddafi. Just as the US is using Saudi Arabia as a proxy to punish Yemen for trying to break free, the US appears ready to use Egypt as a proxy to punish Libya for trying to break free.

Gold surges: World's 'biggest pawnbroker' makes deal

Gold surged above $1,200 an ounce Monday in its best day since January, amid market intrigue surrounding a deal between Venezuela and Citigroup to swap $1 billion in cash for part of the country's gold reserves.

The swap, reported last week, provides cash to President Nicolas Maduro's socialist government as the country reels from a steep drop in oil revenue. Reuters reported Friday that the Venezuelan central bank was expected to have provided 1.4 million ounces of gold in exchange for the cash, and the country would have to pay interest on the funds.

"He had to pawn their gold. That's what they've done. They can buy it back. They have rights of first refusal," said Dennis Gartman, publisher of The Gartman Letter. "They went to the biggest pawnbroker of gold—Citibank."

“Photography is a form of power, and people are loath to give up power, including police officers. It’s a power struggle where the citizen is protected by the law but, because it is a power struggle, sometimes that’s not enough,” says Jay Stanley, a senior policy analyst at the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).
