WHY ARE US UNIVERSITIES ARMING THEMSELVES WITH GRENADE LAUNCHERS?

A program that supplies university police with surplus military equipment is enjoying a renaissance under Trump and Sessions. Most of the military gear is going to campuses in states with the highest poverty rates, where the weapons will be used not only to repress student protests but also to perpetuate racial and class divides between campuses and their surrounding communities.

Sending an ominous signal to student protest movements nationwide, universities across the US are once again able to equip their police forces with castoff military gear, tying them ever more intimately into the military-industrial complex.

In August, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced at a Fraternal Order of Police convention that Program 1033 would resume providing ex-military equipment to police organizations, including university police departments.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

ARE YOU FLIPPING KIDDING ME?!?

It appears to me that this militarisation of college and university policing is to "boil the frog slowly", in terms of getting students to accept that this is precisely what policing on campus - and in the rest of their lives - should be; that even the smallest of incidents needs to be met with brutal, overwhelming force.

And to all students and the parents and friends who love them, and happen to read this blog, "1984" was not an instruction manual!!</em>

STUDIES LINK HEAVY METALS TO DISORDERS AND DECLINING IQS IN CHILDREN

A “silent pandemic of neurodevelopmental toxicity” is disabling a generation of children around the world.

This is the verdict of neurology experts Philippe Grandjean and Philip Landrigan in a 2014 report in Lancet Neurology. The staggering tsunami of developmental disabilities now affects at least one in six children in the U.S. and millions more worldwide. Two new studies suggest that the most common of these illnesses—autism spectrum disorder (ASD), attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and tics—are related to each other and may share common causation. The culprit? Environmental toxins, particularly heavy metals.

About 11% (or one in nine 4-17-year-olds) have received an ADHD diagnosis—and in some states, as many as 19%. The most recent ASD estimates in the U.S., from 2014 data, report a prevalence of one in 45 children, representing a “significant increase” compared to 2011–2013.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF these numbers are true, it is very worrying for future generations of humans.

But I wonder if the study was created to take some of the heat off the problems with vaccines, which have been documented to cause massive developmental challenges in vaccinated kids, including severe autism.

ADL CAMPUS GUIDE DESCRIBES HOW TO BLOCK EVENTS ABOUT PALESTINE

The ADL (Anti-Defamation League) has just launched a new initiative for college students called “ADL CAMPUS: Tools for Dealing with Anti-Semitic and Anti-Israel Incidents on Campus.”

This resource contains much useful information about addressing anti-Semitism, endorses such valuable principles as freedom of speech and non-violence, and recommends that students talk to others who may hold different perspectives.

It also, however, contains some deeply problematic components for anyone who believes that human rights and justice should apply to all people without exception.

Unfortunately, the ADL does not share this belief. While it announces prominently, “We protect the Jewish people and secure justice and fair treatment to all,” in reality the ADL supports Israeli injustice against Palestinians.

Its recent campus resource exemplifies this, and distorts facts and words in order to do so.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Conflating any logical, reasonable, and documentable criticism of the nation of Israel for how it treats the Palestinian people with anti-semitism is Orwellian to a point that I just cannot describe, and massively combats the foundational principal of free speech, and equal rights for all people.

OIL RICH VENEZUELA STOPS ACCEPTING DOLLARS

Yesterday Venezuela temporarily suspended the sale of U.S. dollars through its Dicom auction system. This (and other moves) was in response to U.S. sanctions put in place by the Trump administration.

Trump claims the sanctions are there to punish the country's autocratic leaders. Maduro claims Washington's move was part of an “economic war”.

This morning The Wall Street Journal reports that the Venezuela is already telling oil traders not to accept the US currency.

Oil traders who export Venezuelan crude or import oil products into the country have begun converting their invoices to euros.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, Maduro is correct about sanctions being a component to an economic war the Unhinged Surveilled States of Amerika against Venezuela, but is only one of the pieces.

And frequently, economic sanctions are a prelude to a shooting war.

One has to wonder if the next phase has American "boots on the ground" invading, to keep those huge oil reserves away from Russia.

It could also potentially allow police to unlock phones of suspects to find incriminating evidence, without having to get a court to try and force them to hand over their passcode.

How women who don't get enough vitamin D are 50% more likely to develop multiple sclerosis

Those deficient in vitamin D had a 43 per cent higher chance of getting MS than women with adequate levels. The risk was 27 per cent higher for those deficient in vitamin D as compared with those with just insufficient levels.

The raging gas inferno that could only be extinguished with a NUCLEAR BOMB: Footage shows how Soviet Union detonated nuke to put out blaze that had burned for three years

Historic footage shows the moment a nuclear bomb is detonated thousands of feet below the surface in order to extinguish a fire in a natural gas field in the former Soviet Union.

The video from 1966 shows the huge flame burning bright in the middle of the field, as workers at the Urta-Bulak gas well in Uzbekistan try to douse the flames with water to no avail.

The area is then cleared and a large nuclear bomb is deposited underground and detonated to cut off the source of the gas.

SYRIAN WAR REPORT – SEPTEMBER 14, 2017: SYRIAN ARMY CLEARING EASTERN HOMS POCKET FROM ISIS

he Syrian Arab Army (SAA), the National Defense Forces (NDF), and the Qalamoun Shield Forces (QSF) have liberated the villages of Um Rujm, ‘Amudiyah, Rasm Sawwanah, Unq al-Hawa, Khan, Luwaybidah, and Darwishiyah from ISIS in the eastern countryside of Salamiyah north of the Homs-Palmyra highway.

Despite strong ISIS resistance, government troops continue developing momentum in the area. The operation was slowed down in late August because the Syrian military redeployed many units to Deir Ezzor province. However, according to pro-government sources, the entire pocket will be liberated within a few weeks.

The SAA and the Syrian Republican Guard have seized the important Rouad mountain and developed an advance in the direction of Baghiliyah on the northwestern flank of Deir Ezzor city. Government troops have also advanced against ISIS in Jafrah and al-Mariiyah.

With his political survival all but assured, Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad and his wife, Asma, are back to acting presidential, making bread at a bakery in Hama province, checking out a dairy in Tartus, and comforting wounded soldiers at their home.

After six years of civil war, the images of a beaming, confident Assad are meant to telegraph his ability to defy predictions that his ouster was only a matter of time. But they can’t paper over the fact that the Syrian leader has emerged from this power struggle much weakened, heading a country possibly broken beyond repair.

Reagan Documents Shed Light on US 'Meddling'

***
The documents from 1982 came at a turning-point moment when the Reagan administration was revamping how the U.S. government endeavored to manipulate the internal affairs of governments around the world in the wake of scandals in the 1960s and 1970s involving the Central Intelligence Agency’s global covert operations.

Instead of continuing to rely heavily on the CIA, President Reagan and his national security team began offloading many of those “political action” responsibilities to “non-governmental organizations” (NGOs) that operated in a more overt fashion and received funding from other U.S. government agencies.

In the mid-1970s, it became clear to Israel that Iraq’s Saddam Hussein was working on acquiring nuclear weapons and missiles to deliver them. After coming to office in 1977, Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin tried to convince the U.S. and Europe that Saddam was a clear and present danger to the Jewish state, and that action had to be taken. Begin was not taken seriously. In the summer of 1981, Begin gave the order. The Israeli air force destroyed the Osirak reactor. The United Nations Security Council condemned the attack. The Europeans went bonkers. The New York Times called it “inexcusable.” But the Israeli prime minister wasn’t looking to be excused by the Times or the Europeans or even ...

Cassini probe's death dive to send data at just 27 kilobits per second

The probe's final moments will be recorded as data only, because in preparation for its death dive, the probe will stop snapping photos the day before because, as the ESA puts it, “the data transmission rate required to send images is too high and would prevent other high-value science data from being returned.”

NASA reveals that Cassini's final configuration will see it set up to send data at just 27 kilobits per second.

The good news is that Cassini will have eight instruments working during its death dive, including an on-board dust analyser, magnetometer and spectrometers.

But even if they keep working beyond 03:32, we won't know what they see because the manoeuvre that will kill Cassini will see its high-gain antenna pointed away from Earth.

Sacre bleu! Apple's high price, marginal gain iPhone strategy leaves it stuck in the mud

A premium works only when you have two things: the technology that drives the demand, and a sufficient number of willing buyers in the market. It isn't clear the £999 X (64GB) or the £1,149 (256GB) fulfils either.

The iPhone was unique because it could do one or two things (web and maps, but not much else) much better than the competition at the time. The best mobile web experience at the time was on Windows Mobile or Nokia tablets, and it was very clunky. Even without apps or 3G, the first iPhone hinted at greater things to come.

Does the X astonish in the same way? Does it have the same lustre? You must be kidding.

Apple bumps up price on iPad Pro as flash costs climb

Apple has raised the price on much of its iPad Pro tablet line.

The Cupertino giant did not say why it was bumping up the price for the 256GB and 512GB iPad Pro 10.5-inch and 12.9-inch models by $50. A Wi-Fi only 256GB iPad Pro now costs $649 for the 10.5-inch model and $799 for the 12.9-inch one.

The 64GB models for both tablets will remain the same price.

While Apple hasn't given the reason behind the price increase, speculation is that the rising cost of NAND memory chips, driven by an ongoing shortage expected to last until next year, is behind the decision.

hile North Korea’s launches of longer range missiles and it’s sixth and largest nuclear weapon test this month have generated concern, Pyongyang also has low-tech weaponry for use in any conflict with the US and its allies.

One example that doesn’t get headlines is the 300 An-2 biplanes in the North Korean airforce.

Designed in 1946, the aircraft is made largely from wood with a small engine and is difficult to detect by radar. The planes can carry as many as ten paratroops for low-level incursions, but their most unnerving application would be in dispersing biological or chemical weapons.

Is Tylenol 'By Far The Most Dangerous Drug Ever Made?'

If you own Johnson and Johnson stock you probably have enough problems on your hands. The company keeps getting hammered by lawsuits alleging that talc in baby powder has given women cancer (1). So you sure don't need me smacking down Tylenol, which had worldwide sales of almost $2 billion in 2016.

But, don't blame me. This is not my quote. It's part of a written interview I did back in July with Aric Hausknecht, M.D, "Pain In The Time Of Opioid Denial: An Interview With Aric Hausknecht, M.D."

The Case Against the Iranian Nuclear Deal Is One Big Lie

The latest round in their campaign was U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley’s disingenuous and falsehood-filled speech at the American Enterprise Institute last week. The speech is useful in one sense: it provides a handy summary of just about every creative and mendacious argument that die-hard opponents of the JCPOA have been cooking up since the agreement was signed. Unfortunately, it is neither an accurate guide to the agreement, to its current status, nor more importantly, to U.S. interests.

Among other things, Haley claimed — falsely — that the deal “gave Iran what it wanted up-front, in exchange for temporary promises to deliver what we want.” The truth is about 180 degrees from this claim: Iran gave up enriched uranium, destroyed 13,000 centrifuges, dismantled the Arak reactor, let the U.N. install monitoring devices, implemented the NPT Additional Protocol, and a host of other measures — all before the United States or anyone else began lifting sanctions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am deeply concerned that the Unhinged Surveilled States of America, Under President Trump's watch, are stumbling into a war against Iran after successfully pushing it out of the P5+1 Treaty.

This ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid move on the part of the USSA, may result not only in a war against Iran, in the name of "regime change", but also a war against Russia, which has consistently pledged to come to Iran's rescue, should it be attacked militarily.

And the greatest cheerleaders for such a war are none other than President Trump's BFFs in the Middle East, Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu, and Saudi Arabia's Prince Salman.

So President Trump, let me please strongly caution you about the horrific, and dark, consequences for such initiating such a war, where the US will absolutely NOT be on the right side of history: both Netanyahu and Prince Salman are hounding you for regime change in Tehran, but only at the costs of American blood, and American money, and the costs will outweigh the benefits by too wide a margin to even be conceived as a rational plan.

Time to think this one through carefully, appreciate what the US DOES have as a signatory to the P5+1, and come up with a Plan B.

CDC-funded study confirms flu shots linked to spontaneous abortions… vaccine experts rush to explain away the findings

A CDC-funded medical study being published by the medical journal Vaccine has confirmed a shocking link between flu shots and spontaneous abortions in pregnant women. The study was rejected by two previous medical journals before Vaccine agreed to publish it, further underscoring the tendency for medical journals to censor any science that doesn’t agree with their pro-vaccine narratives.

“A study published today in Vaccine suggests a strong association between receiving repeated doses of the seasonal influenza vaccine and miscarriage,” writes CIDRAP, the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy.

10+ Rare Photos Of 9/11 You Probably Haven’t Seen Before

It has been 16 years since the devastating attacks of September 11. Coverage of the tragedy during which nearly 3,000 perished was the main priority that day for most Western news agencies (the scenes were witnessed by an estimated two billion people - a third of the human race). Together with amateur records, this has produced such an incredible amount of footage, some of it is rarely seen even today.

Bored Panda has collected some of the least seen 9/11 pictures from across the internet. From street-shots of the towers going down to satellite images of New York City, these unforgettable photos reveal new angles of the horrific day that changed the world for ever.

America fears China’s geo-political power more than China’s economic might

Economically, the US had similar issues with Japan in the 1980s as it does with China today, but hardly anyone in the US spoke of ‘war’ with Japan then. This is due to the difference in Japan’s geo-political position vis-a-vis that of China.

16 years ago, we began a “war on terror” that will never end

On the 16th anniversary of 9/11, a prescient Hunter S. Thompson column from the day after the attacks was shared on social media. Thompson wrote at ESPN on Sept. 12, 2001:

The towers are gone now, reduced to bloody rubble, along with all hopes for Peace in Our Time, in the United States or any other country. Make no mistake about it: We are At War now — with somebody — and we will stay At War with that mysterious Enemy for the rest of our lives.

Thompson couldn’t have been more right. More than a decade and a half since the attacks, the United States has led regime change in Iraq and Libya and is still bogged down in the longest war in American history in Afghanistan. During that time, Al-Qaeda has been diminished but remains. A group even more extreme that al-Qaeda, the Islamic State (also sometimes known as ISIS), has risen in the power vacuums created by U.S. interventions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Unhinged, Surveilled States of Amerika will most probably self destruct in one of two ways; either in a world war it has generated, but is unable to win for many complex reasons, including not being on the moral side of history, and not having the weapons, troop strength, manufacturing, or money to successfully see it through to its end positively, or ... through a complete economic collapse.

I wish I could come up with a third, positive, rosy view if what may be coming, but I honestly cannot.

Trump Says North Korea Sanctions Are Nothing Compared to What Must Be Done

President Trump appeared very dismissive today of having successfully gotten new sanctions against North Korea through the UN Security Council. Trump referred to the resolution, which was watered down from initial US demands to get China to sign off, as “not a big deal,” saying he wasn’t sure if it would have any impact at all.

Given the instability of the situation and US threats of war, anything that’s not a big deal might be good news. That would be the case, if President Trump weren’t saying that he intends to follow it up with much bigger moves against North Korea.

Speaking during a meeting with the Malaysian Prime Minister, Trump says much tougher measures are needed, and that the Monday sanctions pale in comparison with what’s likely to “have to happen” to North Korea in the future.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The "Unilateral Moves" the US may make, could possibly borrow a page from those items not included in the UN Sanctions, such as tasking US Naval and Coast Guard ships with interdicting North Korean and other ships bound for North Korea, and demanding that the cargo be inspected.

Such a move, in international Naval Law, is considered an act of piracy, if not an outright act of war.

Turkey Signs Russian Missile Deal, Pivoting From NATO

ISTANBUL — In the clearest sign of his pivot toward Russia and away from NATO and the West, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced on Tuesday that Turkey had signed a deal to purchase a Russian surface-to-air missile system.

The deal cements a recent rapprochement with Russia, despite differences over the war in Syria, and comes as Turkey’s ties with the United States and European Union have become strained.

It is certain to stir unease in Washington and Brussels, where officials are trying to keep Turkey — a longtime NATO member, and an increasingly unlikely candidate for European Union membership — from entering Russia’s sphere of influence.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Too late on that last one; Turkey is now definitely "Under the influence" of Russia, as witnessed by this deal.

Catalan independence: Police told to seize ballot boxes

Spain's Constitutional Court has suspended the law that was to become Catalonia's transitional constitution if it declared independence. Prosecutors in Barcelona have ordered police to seize election resources.

The Madrid-based court preventatively suspended a second law relating to Catalonian independence on Tuesday, news agencies quoting unnamed Spanish court sources reported, adding another legal hurdle for separatists.

Prosecutors in Catalonia also on Tuesday ordered police to seize ballot boxes, election fliers or other items that could be used in the banned referendum, news agency AFP reported.

The court, Spain's highest authority on such matters, had already suspended the law and decree calling for a referendum on Catalonia's independence to be held on October 1.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Oh, THAT is really going to go over well with the Catalonian people!!

North Korea Slams ‘Evil’ Sanctions, Vows Faster Nuclear Push

North Korea rejected the latest round of United Nations sanctions on the isolated state, and vowed to accelerate its plans to acquire a nuclear weapon that can strike the U.S. homeland.

In its first official response to the new resolution, North Korea’s foreign ministry released a statement on state-run media saying the sanctions justified its nuclear push and strengthened its will to “follow this road at a faster pace without the slightest diversion until this fight to the finish is over.”

“The adoption of another illegal and evil ‘resolution on sanctions’ piloted by the U.S. served as an occasion for the DPRK to verify that the road it chose to go down was absolutely right,” the ministry said, according to the Korean Central News Agency. “The DPRK will redouble the efforts to increase its strength to safeguard the country’s sovereignty and right to existence,” KCNA said, using the country’s formal name.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The question is not the rhetoric coming out of North Korea, but precisely what Kim Jung Un is really prepared to do, coupled with a potential confrontation by the US, and approached by China and Russia as an issue which must be resolved diplomatically, avoiding all military confrontation.

The question of possible scenarios dealing with North Korea's nuclear push become more complicated, in light of President Trump's having vowed on the campaign trail that he would never allow North Korea to develop a working nuclear missile.

So one has to ask: how does he honor that in a way that China and Russia can sign off on?!? China has already warned the US that should the US strike first, they will take North Korea's side, militarily.

China warns Trump: we will back North Korea of the US strikes first

It appears, with the promises he made regarding North Korea's nuclear program, that President Trump has painted himself into a corner, and one has to wonder just what his "way out" is going to be, if in fact it is NOT a military confrontation with North Korea.
