Astronauts' exercise capacity mitigates in spaceflight due to alteration in cardiovascular function

Astronauts those who are on long space flights or part of deep space missions have lower exercise capacity, says a new study.
This happens because their heart and muscles lose the efficacy of transporting oxygen to the muscles.
Researchers set out to find why astronauts' exercise capacity decreases between 30 and 50 per cent in long-duration spaceflight.

Donald Trump's firing of FBI chief deeply troubling: US media

#MacronLeaks Uncensored: The CIA takeover of smart card company Gemplus (Gemalto)

Perhaps the most interesting of these stories so far is the tale of SIM and smart card vendor Gemplus.

So in the end the West was saved by the election of Emmanuel Macron as President of France: relief in Brussels, a buoyant eurozone, rallies in Asian markets.

Arizona Legislature Ends Income Taxation On Gold And Silver

By Jp Cortez

Phoenix, Arizona (May 10th, 2017) – Sound money advocates scored a major victory today when the Arizona state senate voted 16-13 to remove all income taxation of precious metals at the state level. The measure heads to Governor Doug Ducey, who is expected to sign it into law.

Under House Bill 2014, introduced by Representative Mark Finchem (R-Tucson), Arizona taxpayers will simply back out all precious metals “gains” and “losses” reported on their federal tax returns from the calculation of their Arizona adjusted gross income (AGI)...

China Warns Washington Its Latest Missile Can Sink A US Aircraft Carrier

China recently tested a new, advanced type of guided missile in the sea near the Korean peninsula, the Chinese defense ministry said Tuesday cited by the Times of India, just as South Korea concluded its presidential elections amid rising regional tensions. The test in the Bohai Sea was conducted to “raise the operational capability of the armed forces and effectively respond to threats to national security,” the ministry said in a brief statement. The statement did not say when the launch took place, only that it happened “recently”, nor did it give any details about the missile nor the type of platform from which it was launched.

The deployment, less than a month after a US Tomahawk cruise missile strike on a key regime air base, significantly augments Russia’s ability to defend the entire airspace over Syria against aircraft or missile attack.

Armed Violence is on the Rise Across the United States

Armed violence in the streets has already claimed more American lives than any war that the US has ever waged, in fact the total number of gun violence victims has already surpassed all the wars the country has ever fought, from the American Revolution to the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

Therefore, it’s hardly surprising that Americans are less afraid of radicals that could commit a terrorist attack somewhere in the US than of their armed fellow citizens, notes both The Huffington Post amd YouGov.

According to the Raw Story story report so far over 1,008 people have been shot in Chicago this year alone, with at least 182 fatally. There were also 3,500 shootings, mostly concentrated in poor sections of the city with rampant gang and drug-related violence.

Last year Chicago’s authorities would report 762 murders, 3,550 shooting incidents, and 4,331 shooting victims.

FLASHBACK - 650,000 Emails Found On Anthony Weiner's Laptop; DOJ Blocked Foundation Probe

Yesterday, we reported that the FBI has found "tens of thousands of emails" belonging to Huma Adein on Anthony Weiner's computer, raising questions how practical it is that any conclusive finding will be available or made by the FBI in the few days left before the elections

Now, according to the WSJ, it appears that Federal agents are preparing to scour roughly 650,000 emails that, as we reported moments ago were discovered weeks ago on the laptop of Anthony Weiner, to see how many relate to a prior probe of Hillary Clinton’s email use, as metadata on the device suggests there may be thousands sent to or from the private server that the Democratic nominee used while she was secretary of state, according to people familiar with the matter.

Americans Are Fleeing Major Cities: “Only A Matter Of Time Before Widespread Rioting, Looting And Civil Unrest Becomes Commonplace”

Thousands Flee Chicago For Safer Areas Of The Country As America’s Third Largest City Becomes A Gang-Infested Wasteland

Did you know that the number of murders increased by almost 60 percent in the city of Chicago last year? And as you will see below, this year gang violence in the Windy City has risen to a new level of viciousness. A staggering 9.5 million people live in the Chicago metropolitan area, and it was once known primarily for great pizza, bitter cold and some of the best sports fans on the entire planet. But now the number one thing that comes to mind for many when they think about the city of Chicago is gang violence. As it becomes clear that things are not going to turn around any time soon, thousands of residents are leaving the city for safer areas of the nation. In fact, Cook County lost more people than any other county in America last year by a very wide margin.
When your murder rate goes up by double digits in a single year, you have got a problem.

Update 5: The Spokane Spokesman-Review reports that Gov. Jay Inslee was notified about the tunnel breach by the Energy Department and the White House on Tuesday morning. Inslee called the event “a serious situation.”

“Federal, state and local officials are coordinating closely on the response,” Inslee said, with the state Ecology Department in close communication with the Energy Department. There were no plans for Inslee, who is making several previously planned stops in Skamania County on Tuesday, to go to Hanford, his staff said.

Energy Secretary Rick Perry had been briefed, federal officials said, adding that

“everyone has been accounted for and there is no initial indication of any worker exposure or an airborne radiological release.”

President Trump Deletes Every Old Press Release, But The Internet Never Forgets

Yesterday, journalists discovered that the Trump regime had deleted the president’s infamous press release from 2015 that called for a ban on all Muslims traveling to the United States. But it wasn’t just the Muslim ban. Every single press release from before January 1, 2017 has been erased from donaldjtrump.com. Thankfully, the internet never forgets.

As Russ Kick from the website Memory Hole notes, every Trump/Pence 2016 campaign press release that was deleted this week has been backed up by the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine. It’s almost impossible to completely erase something from the internet these days—for better and for worse.

“In the final analysis, what happened was that Comey has repeatedly and improperly protected Hillary Clinton and her top people from the consequences of their criminal behavior by coloring the law, misstating the law, and focusing on everything but the elephant in the living room: why didn’t he prosecute her? Why didn’t he recommend a prosecution? Why was immunity granted to all of these individuals?

Cholera outbreak in Yemen kills 34 people, may spiral out of control – WHO & MSF

An acute outbreak of cholera-related cases in war-torn Yemen has claimed the lives of at least 34 people in the past two weeks with over 2,000 people still sick, WHO has said. Meanwhile, Doctors Without Borders has warned that the outbreak could spiral out of control.
Yemen unrest
“There have been 34 cholera-associated deaths and 2,022 cases of acute watery diarrhea in nine governorates, including Sana'a, during the period of April 27 to May 7,” a World Health Organization (WHO) official told AFP.

Cholera, which causes severe dysentery and vomiting, can develop in areas with poor sanitation and is contracted by coming into contact with contaminated water sources.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

While cholera has not been weaponised, per se, it is documented as having been used to poison water sources:

During the closing stages of the Rhodesian Bush War, the Rhodesian government resorted to use chemical and biological warfare agents. Watercourses at several sites inside the Mozambique border were deliberately contaminated with cholera. These biological attacks had little impact on the fighting capability of ZANLA, but caused considerable distress to the local population. The Rhodesians also experimented with several other pathogens and toxins for use in their counterinsurgency. [67]

So, one has to wonder; have the Saudis taken a page from the biological warfare book, and done this to the water in Yemen?!?

You can bet that the Saudi military are not drinking from local water resources.

Given the other war crimes in which the Saudi and US military have indulged, I frankly wouldn't put it past them.

This horrific outbreak, coupled with the deaths of children from malnutrition, because of Saudi/US military blockade of Yemeni ports, Images:
Yemeni children dying from malnutrition
,must be something with which the US and Saudi government and military, President Trump, and Prince Salman are completely morally comfortable; it's genocide by design, as cholera will always claim the weakest, most fragile victims in the general population.

S. Korea's new president willing to visit rival North

New South Korean President Moon Jae-in said Wednesday he was open to visiting rival North Korea under the right conditions to talk about Pyongyang's aggressive pursuit of nuclear-tipped missiles.

Moon's softer stance on North Korea could create friction with Washington, which has swung from threats of military action to hints of dialogue as it seeks to formulate a policy under President Donald Trump.

Moon, speaking during his oath of office as the first liberal leader in a decade, also said he'll "sincerely negotiate" with the United States, Seoul's top ally, and China, South Korea's top trading partner, over the contentious deployment of an advanced U.S. missile-defense system in southern South Korea. The system has angered Beijing, which says its powerful radars allow Washington to spy on its own military operations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These statements and sentiments will be characterized by the American Deep State as "double plus ungood", and not the outcome they had wanted, particularly in light of the following:

New South Korean President wants to resolve THAAD issue through negotiations with China and US

So, what should be celebrated as a breath of fresh air for both North and South Korea, is most probably being viewed as an horrendous turn of events by the ever war-centric creatures in the bowels of power in the Unhinged States of America.

The question is, what are they actually willing to do about it, short of a decap strike against South Korean President Moon Jae-in, or a false flag, to be blamed on North Korea?!?

Unfortunately, this move in a peaceful direction by President Moon may well be thwarted by the American Deep State; it is a matter of when, and how, and tensions on the Korean peninsula will most probably be kept artificially high, courtesy of the US government, to achieve their goals, if possible.

The last president to fire an FBI director? Bill Clinton

It's been 24 years since a president fired the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

In 1993, President Clinton ousted William Sessions as FBI director after Sessions refused to voluntarily step down amid ethical concerns. It was the first and only time to happen in U.S. history. That is, until Donald Trump fired James Comey.

Sessions, appointed by Ronald Reagan, had been under investigation by the Justice Department's Office of Professional Responsibility during George H.W. Bush's final year in office.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So before Democrats get all huffy and "morally outraged" about the canning of Comey, they may well need to take a look at their own party's history of doing precisely the same thing under Clinton.

Russian Foreign Minister And Trump Agree: No Need To Probe Election Meddling

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sergei Lavrov is truly "an adult in the room" of geopolitics, and I have a great respect for him, as a peace-centric diplomat.

The whole notion that Russian meddling was the "reason" for Clinton not winning the election is ridiculous on its face, and demonstrates that neither Clinton, nor the Democrats, will ever take responsibility for her loss.

At the end of the day, she was perceived as a rich, thoroughly corrupt, war-centric politician who could not relate to her base; had more baggage than does Kim Kardashian on a photo shoot, and absolutely did not have the temperament necessary to be a good President.

And until, and unless, the Democrats "get it", they are doomed to lose elections, on both a statewide and national basis.

And BTW, to the Democratic National Committee, there is one among you you should be thinking about "grooming" for 2020: her name is Tulsi Gabbard, the Congressional representative from Hawaii, who is pro-peace. Of course, the military/industrial complex won't let this happen, but if it did, it would be great news for the American people.

I'm just saying, think about it; We the People have had it up to HERE with endless years of war, starting with the invasion and occupation of Afghanistan, 16 years on.

Two years ago, the U.S. Department of Energy was warned that two tunnels containing radioactive waste at the Hanford Nuclear Reservation were vulnerable to collapse.

On Tuesday, part of one tunnel failed, triggering an emergency at the nuclear site that required Hanford employees to shelter in place while workers checked for radiation releases.

No one was hurt and no radiation leaks were detected. But problems related to the tunnel’s deteriorating wood timbers from exposure to radioactivity had been identified in a 2015 risk assessment commissioned by the Energy Department.

In the wake of Donald Trump’s dismissal of FBI Director James Comey citing “serious mistakes” and mishandling of the Hillary Clinton investigation, emerging information appears to indicate that in the aftermath of Comey’s firing the FBI intends to begin releasing documents on the Clinton investigation and the Department of Justice may request a second look at the investigation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Couldn't happen to a more deserving person than Hillary Clinton!! :-)

With Comey no longer there to protect her, she's got no hedge/insurance that her actions will not be met with intense scrutiny.

Jeff Sessions' Role in Expanding Private Prisons Is Deeper Than You Might Think

"Some of the biggest backers of Donald Trump's presidency were for-profit prison operators, who bask in his tough stance on illegal immigration and glowing reviews of their industry," TV One's Roland Martin explained on Monday.

"When Obama made the decision [to phase out private prisons] in August, the next day, a subsidiary of GEO group, one of the nation's largest for-profit prison operators donated $100,000 dollars to the pro-Trump super PAC Rebuilding America Now," Martin explained.

Back in February, Seattle's Mayor Ed Murray called for a 2 cent per ounce tax on sugary soft drinks in order to "improve Seattle's educational opportunities for students of color." Per Lynx Media, the tax was expected to raise some $16 million per year.

Of course, when someone on his staff pointed out that a tax on sugary drinks would disproportionately impact the minorities that he was apparently trying to help, Murray knew that something drastic had to happen. So that's when he decided to launch a new attack against the most recognizable symbol of "white privileged institutionalized racism" on the planet: DIET SODA!

Student loan lenders are skimming tens of billions in profits guaranteed by the taxpayers.

"Legal" rackets have two essential components: a public-relations "cover" that obscures the racket and the mechanism that extracts the wealth from the "marks." The Higher Education Racket qualifies on both counts:

1. The PR cover is "you all need a college diploma, and we're here to make that happen." Yea for more education!

2. The extraction mechanism is student loans. Here's a chart that shows what happened relatively recently: your federal government began guaranteeing obscene profits to student-loan lenders and debt-serfdom for tens of millions of "marks" i.e. students.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Here's a list of some of the highest paying jobs in this country which do not require a bachelor's degree:

35 high paying jobs which don't require a bachelor's degree

I was very lucky concerning college; I had a double major in music (I am a published composer) and theatre (I do marketing for a living).

But before you go to college and pick a major, you really need to ask yourself, am I getting the "bang" for my buck in terms of that degree really making me employable?!? This is both a hard and necessary question kids need to ask before settling on a major in college.

And some degrees are absolutely useless, in terms of the real world, so when you talk to, and interview, some of the college staff, be ready to ask them: how many graduates can you confirm have received jobs in this field?!?

If they stumble, and stammer, that is the moment to thank them for their time, and walk out the door.

In what may be an attempt to bolster now ex-FBI director James Comey's oft-derided "Ferguson Effect" claims, the FBI has released a "study" that gathers facts feelings from law enforcement officers around the US and attempts to build a narrative somewhere between "life is unfair" and "there's a War on Cops." It's not a study. It's an opinion poll with the word "study" appended to it.

In short, the Ferguson Effect theory is this: cops are afraid to do their jobs because they're undergoing intense scrutiny in the wake of controversial shootings. It's bullshit, but there are plenty of law enforcement officials willing to stake their reputations on assertions that portray their officers as cowards. Faced with heightened public scrutiny, officers are apparently deciding to do less work than before, supposedly to head off any misrepresentation of their tactics.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We have a member of HPD as a neighbor, and they are one of the most nice, personable people you could imagine. They take their job very seriously, and wouldn't harm anyone unless they absolutely had to.

But the extreme militarisation of America's police force, both in terms of military equipment, and Israeli IDF training, has created an emotional "safe space" for the expression of extreme brutality to the point of murder, and stories demonstrating this vicious change in how policing is done are legion.

IF police want there to be less anger at how they are doing their jobs, they need to change the way they are doing their jobs, so that there are no more atrocities, such as the one the world witnessed in Ferguson.

The Raspberry Pi is at the center of a revolution that has put the power of a PC in the hands of the masses, providing an easy-to-use platform with a wide ecosystem of support. As intuitive and easy to use as the platform may be, both engineers and beginners can benefit from a few tips from those who have already used the Pi.

These “10 Things to Know” are not intended to be comprehensive as there is continuous online community support for that. They are some nuggets that may not be found in any one guidebook or tutorial, but have been acquired through hard-won experience. It includes advice and tips from choosing and formatting SD cards, selecting power supplies for the Raspberry Pi, choosing the right Wi-Fi dongle, programming tips, what to do when the system freezes, and how to avoid destroying the board by powering it correctly.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is reviewing policy changes set in place by the Obama administration that eliminated harsh punishments for low-level drug crimes and could direct federal prosecutors to again charge drug offenders with crimes carrying the most severe penalties, according to U.S. officials.

The change, if adopted, would overturn a memo by then-Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. that instructed prosecutors to avoid charging low-level defendants with drug offenses that would trigger severe mandatory minimum sentences. Only defendants who met certain criteria, such as not belonging to a large-scale drug trafficking organization, a gang or a cartel, qualified for the lesser charges under Holder’s instructions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Attorney General Sessions, a word, please: What follows is for the users, not the dealers; drug addiction is a disease, and should not be criminalised, any more than having cancer should not be criminalised.

Have you not heard of Portugal's success in dealing with addiction?!? What they did was to decriminalise small amounts of drugs for personal use, but urged counseling of those addicted, and the results were amazingly positive.
Portugal’s Example: What Happened After It Decriminalized All Drugs, From Weed to Heroin

Would it not make sense to learn from other countries' successes in this area?!?

But if you do not, I want to ask a question; how much of your personal portfolio, please, is invested in private prisons?!?Private prisons back Trump and could see big payoffs with new policies

Because, sir, this is the ONLY reason I can possibly conceive for your having become "stuck on stupid",championing a policy which we know fails both the individual addict and society in general, and does not make the American public more safe.

Caught on video: Fistfight erupts on Southwest jet as it taxis to gate in Burbank, Calif.

As if airlines in the U.S. don’t have enough trouble on their hands, a Southwest Airlines jet coming into the gate at a California airport was the scene of a full-blown fistfight, another on-plane incident that was caught on cellphone video.

In the footage, which was posted to Twitter, two men can be seen jostling with one another before one is thrown into the seats in front of them. Then the man on the seats receives a series of punches before other passengers and flight attendants intervene.

Mexico was second deadliest country in 2016

It was the second deadliest conflict in the world last year, but it hardly registered in the international headlines.

As Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan dominated the news agenda, Mexico's drug wars claimed 23,000 lives during 2016 -- second only to Syria, where 50,000 people died as a result of the civil war.

"This is all the more surprising, considering that the conflict deaths [in Mexico] are nearly all attributable to small arms," said John Chipman, chief executive and director-general of the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS), which issued its annual survey of armed conflict on Tuesday.

"The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan claimed 17,000 and 16,000 lives respectively in 2016, although in lethality they were surpassed by conflicts in Mexico and Central America, which have received much less attention from the media and the international community," said Anastasia Voronkova, the editor of the survey.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Back in the 70s, Mexico was a nice place to visit for a vacation; not any more, in light of the fact that the drug cartels have taken over the country.

Easy means of delivering secrets using the weak private email server. Easy means of accepting payment through a "charitable" foundation!

This is a perfect setup to repeat the 1996 selling of secrets for cash. In other words, a perfect espionage operation, running out the US State Department, with the weak email server providing the secrets and a charitable foundation to accept and launder the payments! Hillary doesn't have to physically steal the files, the way Jonathan Pollard did. Hillary doesn't have to scratch an X on a mailbox, the way Aldrich Ames did. Hillary doesn't have to tape bundles of stolen documents underneath a park bridge, like Robert Hannsen did!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hillary had two shields protecting her from a full investigation as to what was going on with the private email server, Loretta Lynch and James Comey. Both are no longer able to protect her, and it is time to find out if in fact this nation had a serving Secretary of State who committed espionage using the weak email server to deliver secret documents to foreign interests and the "charitable" Foundation to collect and launder the payments! In addition, the Clinton Foundation was suspected of actually being both a slush fund and money laundry in which many top politicians in both parties participated!

Let justice be done though the heavens may fall!

During a routine surveillance of the area this morning, a 20-foot-wide hole in the roof of one of the tunnels was observed, leading to the precautionary sheltering of employees and notifications to area counties and states. After no contamination was detected, the shelter in place order was lifted and employees were sent home from work early as a precaution. Workers continue to monitor the area for contamination as a crew prepares to fill the hole with clean soil.

The approximately 360-foot-long tunnel where the partial collapse occurred contains 8 rail cars loaded with contaminated equipment. That tunnel feeds into a longer tunnel that extends hundreds more feet and contains 28 rail cars loaded with contaminated equipment. The hole opened up in the shorter tunnel near where it joins the longer tunnel. The tunnels were sealed in the mid-1990s and are checked periodically.

And now one of them has collapsed...

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Our American infrastructure continues to collapse around us; and with a nuclear site collapse, this is about as serious as is a heart attack.

Yet, the US government is perfectly comfortable giving 38 billion dollars to Israel over 10 years, US gives Israel 38 billion dollar in military aids over 10 years but this could not have been fixed in time to prevent the collapse?!?

Where the hell are the US government's priorities here?!? Trust me, they are not about We the People.

And despite all the reassurances that this has been sorted, and handled, I have to wonder how long it will be before the workers at this site, and/or their children, will come down with radiation-induced illnesses.

Workers Evacuated From America’s “Most Contaminated Nuclear Site” After Railway Tunnel Collapses

Along the Columbia River in Southern Washington, lies the notorious Hanford Site. This sprawling nuclear facility was once a critical component of America’s nuclear arsenal. Hanford was first established in 1943 for the Manhattan Project, and continued to operate during the Cold War. The vast quantities of plutonium that were produced there were used to build the majority of our government’s nuclear weapons during the 20th century.

Now however, the rundown facility is a massive liability. The Hanford site has been leaking radioactive materials into the environment for decades, and in 2007 it was was called “the nation’s most contaminated nuclear site.” To give you an idea of just how contaminated Hanford is, in 2014 the government estimated that it would cost $113.6 billion to clean up the entire site.

The Color Revolution Continues In Macedonia

By Brandon Turbeville

Macedonia may at first seem an unlikely target of the Anglo-American color revolution apparatus, but the truth is that the small country is now the latest battleground in a proxy war between Russia and the West. Not only are the two sides competing for influence over the domestic affairs and political decisions of the Macedonian government, there is also the question of geopolitical positions and the agenda of the creation of micro-states and mini-states. Most notably, however, is the interest regarding the Balkan Stream pipeline (aka the Turkish Stream Pipeline)...

'Report on alleged Russian hacking is embarrassment to US intelligence profession' - fmr CIA officer

Ray McGovern: There is very little evidence of this. Let me start by saying, I was five years old on Victory Day in 1945 and congratulations all around. I was twice that when Senator [Joseph] McCarthy held those hearings. And I remember vivid disputes in my living room between those who thought Senator McCarthy was on to the Red Menace, and those of a more persuasive character who said this was a fallacy, that it was a witch hunt.

Watching that hearing today was an embarrassment to me. It was sort of a reflection of what is called the 'Deep State' in our country. We had the CIA, the NSA, the FBI all sort of working behind the scenes, manipulating these senators, whose spokesperson, leading Senator in the Senate, Senator Chuck Schumer, said on air two months ago: “You know, Trump is very foolish to cross, or to go after the CIA." Rachel Maddow asked: “What do you mean?”“Well,” Schumer responded, “the CIA has six ways to Sunday to get back at you."

Turkey warns US against arming Syrian Kurd ‘terrorists,’ ponders end of ‘strategic partnership’

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said he hopes the recent US decision to arm Syrian-Kurdish forces fighting Islamic State will be reversed by the time he flies to Washington for a meeting with President Donald Trump next week.

The Turkish government has asked the US to reverse its decision to broaden support for Syria’s Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (YPG), stating that it is unacceptable for a NATO ally to support “terrorist groups.”

Trump goes after his critics as he trolls 'fraud' Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal for lying about serving in Vietnam

'Watching Senator Richard Blumenthal speak of Comey is a joke. "Richie" devised one of the greatest military frauds in U.S. history,' the president charged.

Back in 2010, when Blumenthal, then Connecticut's attorney general, was vying to replace retiring Sen. Chris Dodd, the New York Times unearthed a military record that differed from what the rising politician said publicly.

Blumenthal had requested deferments at least five times, which allowed him to finish his studies at Harvard, complete a graduate fellowship in England, work as a special assistant to Katharine Graham, the pubisher of the Washington Post, and finally, serve in the Nixon administration.

When Blumenthal finally did serve it was Marine Reserve, which, as the Times put it, 'virtually guaranteed that he would not be sent to Vietnam.'

In remarks, Blumenthal would often allude to having served in Vietnam, while in other statements he spoke blatant untruths.

Close to one-quarter of students at a California elementary school have been directed by school officials to stay home for three weeks due to a small onset of chickenpox cases that began in March.

The chickenpox outbreak at Mariposa School of Global Education in Augora Hills, California is unique because the first case of chickenpox discovered at the school was found in a student who had been fully vaccinated.

Daniel Stepenosky, the superintendent of Las Virgenes Unified School District that includes the Mariposa School, acknowledged to CBS Los Angeles that three students were found to have chickenpox. “A kindergartner, a first-grader, a third-grader. The first case happened around mid-March. The student was immunized, however still contracted chickenpox.”

According to local newspaper The Acorn, Stepenosky noted that “(It’s) interesting . . . the first of three cases was a student that was fully immunized. . . . He was the vaccinated one.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And I would almost bet real money that the one question which will NOT be asked here is, did the unvaccinated kids have chickenpox (which the article does not state) or did the chicken pox vaccine act in such a way that the vaccinated kids wound up with chicken pox anyway?!?

That is the "avoid the question at all costs" question which should have been asked here, and wasn't.

Comey's replacement is also embroiled in Clinton scandal: Andrew McCabe's wife got funding from a Hillary fundraiser

Andrew McCabe, who was formerly the Deputy Director of the FBI and has temporarily taken over the intelligence agency, is also under review for his involvement in the Clinton scandal after his wife received funds from a close friend of Hillary for her political campaign in 2015.

Former FBI Director James Comey was fired by President Donald Trump who claimed Comey provided false testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee about classified emails from Huma Abedin found on Anthony Weiner's computer.

When Comey was fired, his deputy director, McCabe, took over the bureau.
Before McCabe was appointed as the Deputy Director of the FBI, his wife Jill McCabe ran as a Democrat for the Virginia stat senate in 2015.

Her campaign received funds from the state Democratic Party and a political action committee run by Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe.

Israel’s parliament gave preliminary approval Wednesday to a bill defining the country as the “national home of the Jewish people” which downgrades Arabic from official language status.

The bill, supported by 48 against 41 of the Knesset’s 120 members, seeks to “defend (Israel’s) status as a Jewish and democratic state”, said Avi Dichter, the bill’s sponsor, of the ruling Likud party.

On Sunday, ministers gave the bill the initial green light.

It needs to be debated by a parliamentary committee and voted on three more times in the plenum before it becomes part of the country’s so-called “basic laws”, which are similar to a constitution.

It would give special status to the “Jewish and democratic” nature of Israel, to the Jewish calendar and to Hebrew as Israel’s official language.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This legislation, if passed, will give more legitimacy toward an Israeli "Final Solution" against its Palestinian population, and this will be accomplished with an absolute vengeance which will make the civilized world shudder.

Hundreds ordered to stay inside after tunnel collapse in Washington State

Officials detected no release of radiation and no workers were injured, said Randy Bradbury, a spokesman for the Washington state Department of Ecology.

The accident occurred at a facility known as PUREX, located in the middle of the sprawling Hanford site, which is half the size of Rhode Island, Bradbury said.

Torture Chamber Challenge

Webmaster's Commentary: 

John Lamb seems to be holding a rather fun challenge outside the Nevada prison of having people go into a makeshift replica (of a 3x3 wooden box cell) to represent a 3x3 cement cell Ammon Bundy was put in some nights ago ( to help raise money for Ammon's Attorney's to be able to represent him).

So the 3x3 wooden box cell Mr. Lamb built outside the Nevada prison is being called I believe, "The Torture Chamber Challenge" and these videos show how people taking the challenge react.

Remember, these people can leave the box when they want. Ammon Bundy cannot.

Taking painkillers for just one week 'raises the risk of a heart attack': Strongest doses of five types of drug can increase chance by up to half

Taking ibuprofen or other common painkillers for only a week increases the risk of a heart attack, research suggests.

Data from nearly 450,000 patients has linked five forms of painkillers – ibuprofen, celecoxib, diclofenac, naproxen, and rofecoxib – to heart problems.

People who take strong doses of the drugs – called non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) – are the most at risk, the Canadian researchers found. And the risk starts to rise after only a week of starting the painkillers.

Pizza Hut’s franchise in Israel on Monday released an ad poking fun at Palestinian hunger strike leader Marwan Barghouti following the recent release of video footage showing him secretly eating a candy bar and cookies in his prison cell.

The ad drew widespread criticism from Palestinians and a call to boycott the chain, which issued a quick apology.

In the ad, which it posted on its Facebook page and later deleted, the pizza chain put a banner in Hebrew over a screenshot from a clip released by the Israel Prisons Service on Sunday of Barghouti eating. It read, “Barghouti, if you are already going to break the hunger strike, isn’t pizza better?”

Controlled Opposition In The Truth Movement

When truth is subverted, new information cannot be accepted or believed even if evidence to the contrary is presented, that is, until the system crashes. As experienced by many under the Marxist/Leninist regime, those who do not fall in line, those who revolt against the message, the “dissidents” who promote equality, are squashed.Despite living in the Age of Information, humanity has reached a state of powerlessness, unable to defend itself, the family, the community, or the country. The appearance of freedom is illusion where both sides of a debate are controlled at the top. Any natural disaster or act of terrorism becomes an opportunity for opportunists to remove more freedoms. The Establishment sets up the fall by framing the debate as “pro vs. anti.” This manipulation has played out over the past thirty years in American Vaccine policy as a psychological operation or Psy Ops.

Just a few weeks after it was revealed Google Chrome contained a dangerous vulnerability that made phishing attacks "almost impossible to detect", a new threat has been detected.

SophosLabs Android researcher Rowland Yu has published a blog post about a malicious version of Google Chrome for Android spotted online.

The compromised version of the hugely-successful browser contains a piece of malware – dubbed Andr/SandRat-C – that can evade the digital signatures at the heart of modern security procedures.

The fraudulent Chrome can bypass these safeguards built into your device and record audio or video from your smartphone, read the contents of your SMS messages, send SMS, and record the location of the device.

The Astana Process: A Possible Solution to An Impossible Situation in Syria

This past Thursday, a three-page memorandum was signed in Astana, Kazakstan calling for the creation of four “De-escalation Zones” in Syria. This latest proposed peace deal is the latest product of the Astana Process chaired by three nations, Russia, Iran and Turkey, an effort designed to support the previous UN Security Council Resolution 2254.

This document is controversial to say the least, because it calls for the establishment of “islands of safety,” which are analogous to Washington’s previously called for ‘Safe Zones.’ These four zones include the northwestern province of Idlib, the Al-Rastan Plain just north of the city of Homs, the area of Eastern Ghouta near Damascus, and areas in the Daraa’a and Al Quneitra governorates of southern Syria.

Obama Pockets $3.2 Million For Speaking Gig In Milan

President Obama, the preeminent crusader against the evils of Wall Street, took some heat from his Progressive pals a few weeks ago when it emerged that as his first paid speech appearance he would receive $400,000 for roughly an hour of his time from, well, Wall Street, or rather Cantor Fitzgerald.

But the irony didn't end there. In an effort to combat the public outcry, the beloved former President defended his efforts by arguing that the decision to take $400,000 from Cantor Fitzgerald couldn't possibly mean that he's a sellout because, well, he already sold out to Wall Street during his initial Presidential campaign back in 2008. You can't sell out again if you've already sold out before...come on people, it doesn't work that way. Here is part of his actual statement:
