US Relocating ISIS Terrorists

In war theaters where ISIS operates, America supports the scourge it pretends to oppose, along with al-Nusra and other terrorist groups.

An often used tactic involves relocating ISIS fighters from one area to another – last year from Mosul to Syria, currently from Raqqa to elsewhere in the country.

According to Fars News,

“US-led forces have several times transferred the ISIL leaders from Iraq and Syria to other regions by heliborne operations.”

“Local sources reported on Wednesday that three military helicopters of the US-led coalition carried out another heliborne operation in Eastern Homs, carrying a number of ISIL terrorists on board.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why am I not surprised at these revelations?!?

The hypocrisy here is nothing short of amazing and completely appalling.

U.S. Bases Strategically Placed to Prevent Syrian Military From Advancing; Outlining Borders of Kurdistan

Despite the spits and spurts of World War Three, it seems the United States (at least part of the establishment) and Russia are beginning to move toward a cooling of their approaches to the Syrian crisis. While we have seen this many times in the past – the apparent mutual understanding of Russia and the U.S. – we have been consistently been rattled by an abrupt push by the United States toward a greater involvement in Syria and a push that could very well be the catalyst for a third world war.

While there obviously remains the possibility that the United States will once again lash out like a dying lunatic empire, risking the lives of everyone on earth, we might also ask whether or not the U.S. has had a change in strategy or even perhaps whether or not the American “Plan B” is coming to fruition.

U.S. Bases In Syria Set The Borders For A Federalized Country

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This balkanisation of Syria is an illegal and immoral act on the part of the American government, to make it more "pliable" to Western demands.

But there is a question of just how long Russia, which has been invited by the Syrian government to get rid of the jihadis, will put up with it. The question is: just how far they are willing to go to get these American encampments out of Syria?!? And that is where things could get... nasty very quickly.

Ukraine De Facto Turns Into a NATO Military Platform, Sharpened for Use Against Russia

These days the airport of Odessa turned into a natural NATO airfield that only just manages to receive and send military aircraft with staff and military equipment. The Odessa “patriotic” Dumskaya.Net publication, literally choking with delight at such proximity to NATO “saviors”, regularly publishes photo reports on these take-offs and landings, from which it is possible to have a certain notion of the plans of the alliance’s command. Thus, just in a week in Odessa the arrival of the following military plans of the alliance was recorded.

But, perhaps, the most interesting visitor was the latest American distant anti-submarine Poseidon R-8 plane, which in general arrived in Ukraine for the first time.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This NATO upgrade of the former Soviet military airbase in Artsyz does not bode well for peace on this planet at all.

Reckless US Policy Toward North Korea

Decades of US hostility toward the DPRK created heightened tensions, threatening possible conflict on the Korean peninsula - an unthinkable prospect pitting two nuclear powers against each other if launched.

Pyongyang, China, Russia, and South Korea want issues resolved diplomatically. Washington needs enemies to justify its unjustifiable imperial agenda, North Korea a longstanding one - because of its sovereign independence, not for any threat it poses.

It never attacked another country throughout its entire post-WW II history. It threatens none now, except in retaliation if attacked, its right under international law.

China is displeased with Trump administration pressure to ally with its unacceptable strategy - economic and financial strangulation to bring the DPRK to its knees, a lunatic scheme Beijing rejects, an unworkable one if implemented.

The only way to resolve Korean peninsula issues is the diplomatic road Washington won’t take. That’s the key issue, no other.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US refuses to offer any starting stance for a negotiation, like a suggestion about creating a peace treaty to replace the existing armistice in exchange for North Korea's stopping its nuclear program. In fact, Rex Tillerson has very publicly stated that there will be no negotiation until the DPRK.

Rex Tillerson Rejects Talks With North Korea on Nuclear Program

North Korea cannot be brought to the table, if the US gives it nothing with which to actually negotiate, and this is precisely the situation in which the US government has placed itself, and that ... is really unfortunate.

Ignore the Haters. Russia Is Not Our Enemy.

Those hoping for an early end to the Trump administration received a gift this week as Donald Trump Jr. disclosed an exchange with a Russian lawyer. The Russian hacking story now promises to dominate headlines for the remainder of Trump's presidency, however long it lasts.

For the duration, talking heads will be telling us that Russia is an adversary and a hostile threat. But regardless of whether the president was involved, Russia hating, while great for the military-industrial complex, is inimical to world peace and broader American prosperity.

The intelligence and military leakers and Trump's political enemies believe friendly relations with Vladimir Putin's government are dangerous. But since Russia can annihilate our country, the greater danger is not engaging with Putin.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are a number of areas in which the US and Russia should be collaborating, such as anti-terrorism work; science; and medical research.

But I cannot believe, for one second, that Russia is the US government's biggest problem. And utterly no proof has been presented that Russia attempted to turn the election in Trump's favor.

We have innumerable problems at home that need to be fixed; we have wars which show no sign of getting won, which should be wound down; our health care is in shambles; and a bankrupt Federal Government, combined with bankrupt states, like Illinois, which may well be just the start of that unwinding.

Jobs have been offshored/outsourced to the point that the middle class is fading; and the general quality of what passes for "education" is just absolutely deplorable.

And no, Russia is not the source of these woes; it is because of lousy decisions by Federal and state leadership, only interested in lining their own pockets, while their "alleged constituents" are forced to live with the consequences of these bad decisions...like the people in Flint, Michigan, who, years after the contamination was known to exist, still do not have clean drinking water!

Begala: We Should ‘Debate Whether We Should Blow Up’ Russia

Long-time Clinton family ally Paul Begala on Wednesday evening seemingly suggested President Trump should consider bombing Russia in response to the Kremlin’s meddling in the 2016 election. Speaking with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, the former adviser to Bill Clinton lamented how Trump supporters don’t seem particularly outraged about Russia’s meddling in American affairs. “We were and are under attack by a hostile foreign power,” he said, “and... we should be debating how many sanctions we should place on Russia or whether we should blow up the KGB, GSU, or GRU [Russia’s foreign intelligence agency].” He continued: “If I was Trump, I would be mad because it has tainted his victory.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. Begala, forgive me, but I must ask; have you gone absolutely foaming at the mouth, mad-dog insane, to suggest such a thing?!?

And sir, did you not get the memo the the "Big Lie" went out with the whoopie cushion, and the dribble glass?!?

As to the evidence, the Democrats not only have not presented a shred of evidence that this happened, but they also will not allow top US investigators into their private servers; so what's up here?!?

Gilad Atzmon on politics in music, Roger Waters, Palestine and humanitarianism

Jazz musician, author and philosopher Gilad Atzmon spoke with The Duran about Roger Waters verses the Israel lobby, the place of politics in music, freedom versus dogma and Palestinian freedom in the 21st century.

Recently, Pink Floyd co-founder Roger Waters has been in the news, not for his North America musical tour but for his politics. As an outspoken supporter of Palestine, he has come up against the Israel lobby in many western countries.

Recently, various pro-Israel activists have financed the making of a film against Waters called Wish You Weren’t Here,a mockery of the Pink Floyd album and song Wish You Were Here.

Even among politically minded musicians, few talk about the Israel/Palestine issue. I recently spoke with acclaimed jazz musician, philosopher, social commentator and pro-Palestine thinker Gilad Atzmon about his reaction to the latest attempt to smear Roger Waters over his advocacy of Palestinian justice.

USA Preventing Inspection of Chemicals Weapons in Syria, Says Russia

The United States by all means tries to prevent the sending of experts to investigate the use of chemical weapons in Syria, denounced today Mikhail Ulianov, director of the arms control department of the Russian Foreign Ministry.

What is logical is that Washington seeks collaboration of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) to investigate what happened last April in Jen-Sheijun, Syria's Idlib province, considered Ulianov.

However, he said, the United States at all times prevented the sending of OPCW specialists to both Jen-Sheijun and the Al Shairat air base, attacked on April 7 with 59 US Tomahawk missiles.

Don’t Be Fooled, There Is No ‘Diplomacy’ With North Korea

China and South Korea both favor the diplomatic approach, and both have been pushing the Trump Administration to consider serious proposals for a broad deal. While there are several variations, at the core of the proposal involves North Korea totally freezing both their nuclear and missile programs, the U.S. halting wargames, and reducing the American military footprint on the Korean Peninsula.

It’s not a bad deal, and gives the U.S. what it wants. That South Korea is backing the deal is particularly significant, showing that they’re willing to give up the annual war exercise, and see some of the U.S. troops withdraw from their territory, in return for these concessions. The White House is not only sour on the specifics of the idea, but is rejecting such proposals out of hand, insisting they don’t want to make any deals that involve lifting any economic or military pressure on North Korea.

Lawmakers: Pentagon Can Keep Secret Chemical Weapons Tests on US Troops

Back in the 1960s and 1970s, the Pentagon conducted multiple secret tests of chemical and biological weapons, deliberately exposing some 6,000 US troops to nerve gases and various bacterial toxins, to “develop a response plan” in case US troops were ever attacked by chemical weapons. You know, attacked with chemical weapons by someone other than the Pentagon.

The first information about the tests emerged as early as 2000, and veterans groups have been demanding more information, insisting that many of the exposed veterans are suffering adverse effects from their exposure, and need to know more to seek better treatment. The problem is, the details are all classified.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If you know of any kids thinking about enlisting for the military, please show them this article; to the Pentagon, its troops are simply disposable, once they have finished their missions, and may well rot in a chemically induced hell for the rest of their lives, when they have been the subjects of experiments like this.

And please don't tell me that, in some way or another, such "tests" are not performed currently.

US to Send Ground Troops to Kosovo to Join NATO Operation

The Pentagon has announced today that a unit of about 500 US ground troops, National Guardsmen, are to be deployed to the Kosovo region to join a NATO “peacekeeping” operation (KFOR) that has proven the longest in the alliance’s history.

The operation is the remnant of the 1999 NATO attack on Serbia, which ended with NATO announcing that Kosovo, which had been part of Serbia since the Middle Ages, would secede from Serbia. The ethnic Albanian population approved of this. The Serbian population in North Kosovo continues to oppose it.

18 years in, Kosovo still lacks recognition from a number of states, particularly Serbia, and the intense ethnic division between Albanians and Serbs remains as big a problem as ever. NATO’s effort has been to just keep throwing more troops at the situation, and hope that somewhere along the line the situation will resolve itself and victory can be claimed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I wouldn't hold my breath here, wait for a "peaceful resolution" of the situation; the NATO troops are here to prevent the reigniting of a civil war , but that is just about all they can do.

Why CIA's 'Solid Evidence' Against Assad Evokes Memories of Powell's Test Tube

CIA Director Mike Pompeo's claim that US intelligence has "solid evidence" that Bashar al-Assad's forces conducted a chemical strike on Khan Shaykhun on April 4 resembles nothing but yet another "fake," Sergey Goncharov, head of the Alpha Anti-Terrorist Unit's International Association of Veterans, told Radio Sputnik.

While CIA Director Mike Pompeo insists the US "has solid evidence" that the Syrian Arab Army's used chemical weapons in Khan Shaykhun on April 4, these claims are completely detached from reality, Sergey Goncharov, head of the Alpha Anti-Terrorist Unit's International Association of Veterans, says.

The former DNC chair and Florida Democrat ran the organization when it got hacked in an intrusion that the intelligence community concluded was orchestrated by the Kremlin.

U.S. DOUBLED FUEL SUPPORT FOR SAUDI BOMBING CAMPAIGN IN YEMEN AFTER DEADLY STRIKE ON FUNERAL

Last October, an airstrike in Yemen by the Saudi Arabia-led coalition hit a funeral, killing more than 130 people and drawing global condemnation. Yet in the months following that strike, the United States doubled the amount of fuel it provided to coalition jets, according to figures obtained from the U.S. military. The numbers underline the fact that U.S. support for the campaign has continued and even increased despite growing attention to civilian casualties and alleged war crimes by the coalition.

But the House of Representatives just passed over the chance to vote on legislation that would have tracked the fuel the Pentagon gives to the Saudi coalition and prohibited refueling of coalition aircraft unless the Pentagon could assure Congress that subsequent missions wouldn’t hit civilians or targets contained on no-strike lists.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To be a citizen of a country which enables Saudi war crimes in Yemen is just repulsive to me.

And here is what these bombings accomplish; the assassination of infants; children; and the elderly physically infirm. Warning: the following image is very graphic; but as a Christian witness to this genocide, I feel compelled to share this with our readers:

Images: Yemeni children killed and maimed for life from Saudi bombings

This, folks, is what is being done in Yemen, with your tax dollars and in your name.

We urgently need to be having a national dialogue on how enabling this Saudi genocide in Yemen is "protecting" us, and our quality of life here in the US.
And the short answer is, it isn't; not one bit.

CNN, Clarissa Ward Work With Nusra Terrorist To Create Propaganda, Try To Cover Tracks After The Fact

Massive eruption of the 'Mountain of God' volcano in Tanzania is IMMINENT - and it could wipe out key sites in human history, scientists have warned

A massive eruption of the 'Mountain of God' volcano in Tanzania is imminent - and it could wipe out key sites in human history, scientists have warned.

Also known as Ol Doinyo Lengai, the 7,650ft (2,331m) volcano is less than 70 miles away from where footprints left by our ancestors 3.6 million years ago have been discovered.

And it is also close to a spot where 400 human footprints from 19,000 years ago have been found by scientists.

Researchers studying the tremors of the volcano have now warned it may erupt 'any second', destroying the invaluable sites forever.

This time, anchor Alisyn Camerota falsely claimed in an exchange with ex-Trump campaign communications director Jason Miller that President Trump would have approved the Uranium One deal that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton pushed through. That deal saw the Russians gain control of nuclear energy company Uranium One through multiple transactions over several years, as a steady stream of millions of dollars poured into the Clinton Foundation. Clinton, as Secretary of State, approved the transaction that placed the Uranium One assets in Russian control as the donations were being made to her family’s foundation.

Trump to Admit Iran Is Complying With Nuclear Deal

While President Trump campaigned repeatedly on the idea of the US pulling out of the P5+1 nuclear deal in Iran, much of that has hinged on being able to claim in some way that Iran isn’t keeping up its end of the bargain. The problem is, they are.

Facing a deadline of Monday, President Trump is going to have to re-certify to Congress that Iran is totally complying with its obligations under the P5+1 deal, which effectively delays his expected effort to force a “renegotiation,” an idea that no other party of the treaty seems at all interested in.

The fact that Iran is complying with the deal is no surprise, of course, as the IAEA issues monthly reports to that effect anyhow. Still, it wasn’t a slam dunk that the administration was going to tell the truth, and there was speculation that they might withhold the re-certification.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. President, a word, please; attempting to double down on lies to cause the P5+1 deal to collapse, as did your Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, is just plain counterproductive, not to mention painfully embarrassing, when the IAEA, which is constantly inspecting Iran's sites, states plainly that it continues to be in compliance with the deal.

Solar panel manufacturing devastates the environment with toxic heavy metals, warns report

While the theory is that solar energy is cleaner than other types of energy, the sad fact is that the environmental cost of solar panels outweighs the cost of nuclear energy, by far. A recent report from the pro-nuclear group Environmental Progress claims that solar panels produce 300 times more waste than nuclear power plants for every single unit of electricity produced. As it turns out, solar panels rely on a variety of heavy metals that are known to be toxic, such as lead and cadmium. This is made worse by the fact that very little has been done to plan for solar waste and the issues it might cause for the environment.

The pair have co-authored the Nuclear Notebook since 1987, “widely regarded as the most accurate source of information on nuclear weapons and weapons facilities available to the public,” according to publisher Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists.

Next-generation ballistic missiles can be placed in central and southern India and reach nearly every region in China, the researchers said in their 2017 report on Indian nuclear forces published this month.

The duo estimate plutonium production in India allows for the creation of 150 to 200 warheads. So far, they believe between 120 and 130 nukes have been completed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Considering recent border skirmishes between India and China, this is a very worrisome turn of events; I would like to hope that the Indian government sees its nuclear weapons as a deterrent, but not first-strike weapons, but right now, that is impossible to discern, effectively.

Fracking waste contaminates Penn. watershed with radioactive material

Stream sediments in Pennsylvania downstream from two fracking wastewater treatment facilities were found to contain radioactive material and carcinogens, according to study scientists from Penn State, Colorado State and Dartmouth universities.

The study’s findings, published Thursday, came after Penn State’s Bill Burgos and his fellow scientists sought to discover what had been the effect of the strategy of treating and releasing fracking wastewater, according to the Independent.

They sampled sediments and groundwater from the Conemaugh River water, downstream from two facilities that were created to make the water used in the fracking process fit for release into the environment.

BBC announces new deal to give away its news content to US commercial station CBS in return for greater access to American market

The BBC has announced a new deal to give away its news content to the US commercial station CBS in return for greater access to the American market.

Bosses at the Corporation pulled the plug on a 23-year partnership with ABC to jump ship to CBS, who had previously worked with Sky News in the UK.

The broadcaster will share video, editorial content and newsgathering resources in London, New York, Washington and around the world to increase both organisations' coverage of global events.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Which reminds me, just how was it that BBC reported on the collapse of WTC-7 ... more than twenty minutes before it actually happened? :)

The Air Force Wants Permission to Shoot Down Civilian Drones

The head of the U.S. Air Force's Air Combat Command wants permission to deal with civilian drones—including shooting them down—that threaten to interfere with flight operations. Two recent incidents, one involving an F-22 Raptor, have shown the military to be relatively defenseless against this potentially expensive nuisance.

JEFF SESSIONS TO REVIVE D.A.R.E. TO HOOK MORE KIDS ON DRUGS AND BOLSTER PRISON PROFITS

In his sanctimonious quest to revive the laughably inept war on drugs, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions now champions this stellar plan: resuscitate the interventionist prevention program — proven wholly worthless by the government, itself — known as D.A.R.E.

Yep — believe it or not — you heard right: D.A.R.E.

Apparently deaf — or, perhaps, oblivious — to all evidence the Drug Abuse Resistance Education program should better be called an hilarious exercise in how not to convince kids to keep away from substances the State deems illegal, Sessions touted its myriad imaginary successes recently, asserting,

“I believe that DARE was instrumental to our success by educating children on the dangers of drug use. I firmly believe that you have saved lives. And I want to say thank you for that. Whenever I ask adults around age 30 about prevention, they always mention the DARE program. Your efforts work. Lives and futures are saved.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Attorney General Sessions, a word, please: doing something precisely the same way, over and over, yet expecting a different outcome... is a classic definition of insanity.

The D.A.R.E program never worked; but what Portugal did regarding drugs did.

It is profoundly unfortunate that you so intently resist what has actually worked in the real word, so I am compelled to ask; are you deliberately ignorant, or you experiencing a really bad episode of SMD (selective memory disorder)?!?

Portugal decriminalised drugs 14 years ago; and now, hardly anyone dies from overdosing.

What they found was that, through this program, teens were infinitely less likely to experiment with drugs, and counselling, rather than jail, helped people immeasurably in getting off drugs.

Oh, and BTW, how much of your financial portfolio is invested in private prisons?!?

Because that is what this country will be filling up, if drug policies do not change for the better in this country.

John McCain WasThe Globalist Point Man In Efforts To Destroy Trump Campaign

Check out this excerpt from a now breaking report by the Daily Mail:

“…McCain dispatched a ‘trusted emissary’ who flew across the Atlantic to meet the source of the documents at an airport that the Guardian did not name.

The aide was instructed to look for a man with a copy of the Financial Times and that’s how the individuals met, with the source taking McCain’s emissary back to his house and giving the American a copy of the documents.

Within 24 hours, the dossier was in Washington, though the contents of the file couldn’t be verified without an investigation.

McCain, the Guardian said, was worried that his actions might be interpreted as revenge for some of the controversial comments Trump made about him – such as knocking the fact that the longtime senator had been a prisoner of war.

However, McCain decided to hand over the documents to FBI Director James Comey on December 9.

In other words, the CIA lied to Trump (just as they did to Kennedy) to manipulate him!

NEOCONS GET IN HERE: TUCKER CARLSON JUST HUMILIATED MAX BOOT ON NATIONAL TV

Over the past 30 years, the neocons have presided over the worst foreign policies in American history -- pursuing their Trotskyite schemes of war that have accelerated to an ebb tide that peaked during Bush the Idiot's reign.

Men like Max Boot, Paul Wolfowitz, Donald Rumsfeld, Bill Kristol, Richard Perle, and many others, have attached themselves to the republican party like a cancerous tumor -- transforming it from a checkered pants, cigar smoked room, boys club into a satanic cult out for the blood of the indigenous.

At the root of the neocon "plan", being disciples of Trotsky, is the destruction of "Mother Russia." It's in their blood -- because they're still mad at Stalin. This has been a constant since the 50's. It was only after the Berlin Wall fell and there was a detente between the United States and Russia in the 90s did these revolutionaries affix themselves to the GOP with real energy.

STAR WARS 2.0: Washington’s Battle to Fund Space Warfare

In 1983, US President Ronald Reagan launched the Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI), a space-based anti-missile system which came to be known as “Star Wars.” At the time, SDI was meant to give the US a nuclear first-strike against advantage against its geopolitical rival the Soviet Union by using various weaponized technologies including lasers, to intercept Soviet ICBM missiles in space. In the end, the program proved to be too costly, too complicated for a practical role out, and ineffective against non-space faring weapons like cruise missiles, submarine based missile batteries and long range bombers.

Now in 2017, as the Cold War is being re-heated again, the West is potentially looking at the complete militarization of outer space. This time the US nemesis is both Russia and China. But what really driving this new ‘space race’ agenda?

CIA Agent Confesses On Deathbed: ‘We Blew Up WTC7 On 9/11’

79-year-old retired CIA agent, Malcom Howard, has made a series of astonishing claims since being released from hospital in New Jersey on Friday and told he has weeks to live. Mr. Howard claims he was involved in the “controlled demolition” of World Trade Center 7, the third building that was destroyed on 9/11.

Mr. Howard, who worked for the CIA for 36 years as an operative, claims he was tapped by senior CIA agents to work on the project due to his engineering background, and early career in the demolition business.

Trained as a civil engineer, Mr. Howard became an explosives expert after being headhunted by the CIA in early 1980s. Mr. Howard says has extensive experience in planting explosives in items as small as cigarette lighters and as large as “80 floor buildings.”

U.S. BOMBS WITH WHITE PHOSPHOROUS WHILE BLAMING ASSAD FOR USING ‘SARIN’

On June 14th, Human Rights Watch headlined “Danger From US White Phosphorous”, and linked to far more evidence of America’s firebombings in Syria and Iraq, than had ever been presented regarding the alleged-by-America April 4th sarin gas event that allegedly resulted in Syria from one of Assad’s bombs on that day having hit a ‘rebel’ warehouse that might have had sarin in it — a mistake if it had even happened as America charged it happened. America then on April 7th missile-bombed in ‘retaliation’ one of Assad’s military airports, a supposed ‘punishment’, which was praised by U.S. ’news’media for that additional U.S. invasion of Syria’s sovereign territory, where the U.S. is an occupier and an enemy-invader instead of any legal participant in the war there. (Russia and Syria urged an independent investigation to determine what had actually happened on April 4th; it was “blocked by Western delegations without any explanations.”)

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As a Christian pacifist activist, I am appalled that I am a citizen of a country which so frequently indulges in war crimes with such impunity.

Old Planned Parenthood pamphlet: Abortion is ‘dangerous’ to the ‘life and health’ of women

An undated pamphlet from Planned Parenthood Federation of America, formerly named the Birth Control Federation of America, reveals that abortion is not health care, as the abortion giant now unabashedly claims. Instead, the pamphlet, housed online by Smith College Libraries, describes abortion as a procedure that “kills life after it has begun” and “dangerous” to the “life and health” of the mother. In discussing birth control, it reads: “Abortion kills life after it has begun. … Abortion is dangerous to your life and health.” The back of the pamphlet also contains Planned Parenthood’s iconic slogan, “every child a wanted child,” which may stem from the eugenics movement. Planned Parenthood’s founder, Margaret Sanger, was a staunch eugenicist who held racist affiliations and believed in the elimination of certain groups of people.

Fracking can contaminate rivers and lakes with radioactive material, study finds

The vast amount of waste water produced by fracking can contaminate rivers, lakes and other waterways with radioactive material and hormone-affecting chemicals, according to new research.

The study tested sediments and groundwater downstream of a treatment plant in Pennsylvania that was designed to make the water used as part of the fracking process fit for release into the environment.

The scientists, from Pennsylvania State University and other academic institutions, discovered that despite this process there were “high loads of chloride, barium, strontium, radium and organic compounds” in the Conemaugh River watershed.

Stream sediments in Blacklick Creek, just downstream from one treatment plant, were found to contain about 200 times the level of radium upstream of the plant.

The highest concentration of radium found was just 14 per cent below the level at which it would have to be treated as radioactive waste in some US states.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If, in fact, this data is correct, why in the name of heaven is this process still allowed to continue in the US?!?

Because of one 5 letter word: money.

And it's never the executives of the companies doing the fracking who have to live with environmental and health consequences of these processes; it is the "flyover/expendable" Americans who are forced to live with the consequences of these practices.

And of course, oil companies are very generous contributors to both Republicans and Democrats, so do not expect the political class in this country to even attempt to protect their "alleged" constituents from the harm fracking creates.

oil and gas: top political recipients of contributions

What is it going to take to get this process to stop?!?

I would imagine that a couple of high profile "Erin Brokovich"- type, class action lawsuits, in concert, just might. But it's going to take some attorneys with skills, and courage, to get the kind of compensation people who have suffered dramatically because of fracking in their neighborhood deserve.

Tennessee restricts use of Monsanto pesticide as problems spread

Tennessee on Thursday imposed restrictions on the use of dicamba, a flagship pesticide for Monsanto Co, to become the fourth state to take action as problems spread over damage the weed killer causes to crops not genetically modified to withstand it.

Dicamba is sprayed by farmers on crops genetically modified to resist it but it has drifted, damaging vulnerable soybeans, cotton and other crops across the southern United States. Farmers have fought with neighbors over lost crops and brought lawsuits against dicamba producers.

Arkansas banned its use last week and Missouri, which initially halted dicamba spraying, has joined Tennessee with tight restrictions on when and in what weather spraying can be done. Kansas is investigating complaints.

Monsanto, which said it has spent years working to make dicamba stickier and limit drift when it is sprayed, is campaigning to overturn the bans.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One can only hope that the lawsuits against this company will ultimately cause it to go bankrupt, for all the evil and harm it has created.

Man who sought Clinton’s emails from Russian hackers committed suicide

A Republican donor and operative from Chicago’s North Shore who said he had tried to obtain Hillary Clinton’s missing emails from Russian hackers killed himself in a Minnesota hotel room days after talking to The Wall Street Journal about his efforts, public records show.

In a room at a Rochester hotel used almost exclusively by Mayo Clinic patients and relatives, Peter W. Smith, 81, left a carefully prepared file of documents, which includes a statement police called a suicide note in which he said he was in ill health and a life insurance policy was expiring.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Tardigrades: Earth’s unlikely beacon of life that can survive a cosmic cataclysm

Whether it is a supernova or an asteroid impact, should a cosmic calamity strike, it seems there will be at least one form of life left: a tubby, microscopic animal with the appearance of a crumpled hoover bag.

The creatures, known as tardigrades, are staggeringly hardy animals, a millimetre or less in size, with species living in wet conditions that range from mountain tops to chilly ocean waters to moss and lichen on land.

“They can survive incredible conditions – we are talking close to absolute zero, the vacuum of space, exposure to radiation that would kill us, and these things just walk away from it like nothing happened,” said David Sloan, an astrophysicist from the University of Oxford.

Now new research by Sloan and colleagues has shown that the creatures would survive any cosmic disaster that might conceivably be thrown at Earth – a discovery that could have implications elsewhere in the solar system, and beyond.

The new law would be modeled on Britain’s Investigatory Powers Act, which was passed by the British Parliament in November and gave intelligence agencies some of the most extensive surveillance powers in the Western world, the government said.

Last month, the Germans focused on Meisel's memory of life inside Stutthof alongside her mother and older sister. It meant revisiting painful memories: a guard tearing out her hair to put on a child's doll, the sight of her mother entering the gas chamber, and the agony of her fingernails pried off by the camp commandant who kept his lush greenhouse in view of the doomed.

Analysis showed those who suffer a heart attack and take a daily cholesterol-busting pill for five years will increase their life expectancy by just four days.

A coalition of experts in Britain and the US joined forces to declare there is “no consistent evidence” that the pills reduce death rates.

They claimed that the pro-statin lobby is funded by pharmaceutical giants and simply based on “cherry-picked science”.

Private Data Of 6 Million Verizon Customers Exposed

The records of up to 6 million Verizon customers have been exposed to potential theft and abuse after they were left openly accessible on the internet.
