So long as that is in place and there is no evidence that the administration or the Congress or anybody else is requesting that we do things other than what we think is the appropriate thing, then what the relationships are don't, frankly, matter." -- Alan Greespan, responding to a question by Jim Lehrer

Major New Study Shows Pesticide Risk To Honey Bees

Scientists have found for the first time that neonicotinoid pesticides can harm honey bees in the real world.

The major new study from the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology (CEH) found that pesticides called neonicotinoids can cause harm to bees, a development that is likely to increase calls for a ban of the chemicals across Europe.

Chemotherapy may spread cancer and trigger more aggressive tumours, warn scientists 

Chemotherapy could allow cancer to spread, and trigger more aggressive tumours, a new study suggests.

Researchers in the US studied the impact of drugs on patients with breast cancer and found medication increases the chance of cancer cells migrating to other parts of the body, where they are almost always lethal.

Around 55,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer in Britain every year and 11,000 will die from their illness.

Many are given chemotherapy before surgery, but the new research suggests that, although it shrinks tumours in the short term, it could trigger the spread of cancer cells around the body.

It is thought the toxic medication switches on a repair mechanism in the body which ultimately allows tumours to grow back stronger. It also increases the number of ‘doorways’ on blood vessels which allow cancer to spread throughout the body.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Cancer patients, and the people who love them, have known about this for quite some time; yet, doctors keep silent about what the nasty effects of chemo can ultimately be.

Additionally, there are very few doctors who understand the relationship between nutrition and wellness, and are able to suggest complementary supplementation to keep their patients' systems healthier.

NANCY PELOSI DROPS SHOCK REVELATION ABOUT WHAT WOULD HAPPEN UNDER HILLARY PRESIDENCY

During a June 26 appearance on CBS This Morning, Pelosi was asked about the growing number of rank-and-file Dems who’d like her to step down as leader, but to that she countered, “Let me tell you why I should stay, instead.

Antibacterial soaps found USELESS at killing germs and cause harmful mutations (while posing a health risk to pregnant women and babies)

Antibacterial soaps containing triclosan, triclocarban, and 19 other bactericides are useless for killing germs because these chemicals cause infectious bacteria to take on new traits so they can survive and dominate their environment. On top of all this, experts warn that these chemicals are disrupting the hormones of pregnant women and are harming babies at crucial development stages.

No, NASA is not hiding kidnapped children on Mars

The situation for human beings on Mars is dire, and not just because the red planet's atmosphere is mostly carbon dioxide and the average temperature is -81 degrees.

There's also the issue of the child-trafficking ring operating in secret on the planet 33.9 million miles from earth, according to a guest on the Alex Jones Show.

“We actually believe that there is a colony on Mars that is populated by children who were kidnapped and sent into space on a 20-year ride,” Robert David Steele said Thursday during a winding, conspiratorial dialogue with Jones about child victims of sex crimes. “So that once they get to Mars they have no alternative but to be slaves on the Mars colony.”

US warns China on trade with NKorea if it wants US trade

U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley warned China on Wednesday that it risks its massive trade with the United States if its business with North Korea violates U.N. sanctions.

In a hard-hitting speech at an emergency meeting of the U.N. Security Council following Pyongyang's successful launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile, she said that "the world has become a more dangerous place" and China has a key role in promoting peace and "preventing a catastrophe."
Haley said the United States doesn't seek conflict — "in fact we seek to avoid it." But she said the launch of an ICBM "is a clear and sharp military escalation" and the U.S. is prepared to use its "considerable military forces" to defend itself and its allies "if we must."

"But we prefer not to go in that direction," she said. "We have other methods of addressing those who threaten us, and of addressing those who supply the threats. We have great capabilities in the area of trade."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And if the US doesn't get the response to the new Security Council Resolution they want...then what?!?

Are we looking at a unilateral decap strike, just coming from the US military, or will they be looking at including troops from South Korea and Japan in such an action as well?!?

I have to tell you; so far, this week has been an utter ARMPIT for peace and social justice!!

FLASHBACK: ABC's ’08 Prediction: NYC Under Water from Climate Change By June 2015

New York City underwater? Gas over $9 a gallon? A carton of milk costs almost $13? Welcome to June 12, 2015. Or at least that was the wildly-inaccurate version of 2015 predicted by ABC News exactly seven years ago. Appearing on Good Morning America in 2008, Bob Woodruff hyped Earth 2100, a special that pushed apocalyptic predictions of the then-futuristic 2015.

FLASHBACK 2014 - The End of Snow?

The planet has warmed 1.4 degrees Fahrenheit since the 1800s, and as a result, snow is melting. In the last 47 years, a million square miles of spring snow cover has disappeared from the Northern Hemisphere. Europe has lost half of its Alpine glacial ice since the 1850s, and if climate change is not reined in, two-thirds of European ski resorts will be likely to close by 2100.

The same could happen in the United States, where in the Northeast, more than half of the 103 ski resorts may no longer be viable in 30 years because of warmer winters. As far for the Western part of the country, it will lose an estimated 25 to 100 percent of its snowpack by 2100 if greenhouse gas emissions are not curtailed — reducing the snowpack in Park City, Utah, to zero and relegating skiing to the top quarter of Ajax Mountain in Aspen.

Submerged SUPER-VOLCANO at favourite Brit holiday destination alarms scientists

Volcanologists are warning over the destructive power of the Phlegraean Fields, also known as Campi Flegrei, near to Naples, Italy, as it is showing signs of erupting.

The huge volcano - technically an eight-mile wide caldera - which is mostly underwater in the Bay of Naples, is bigger than the nearby Mt Vesuvius – which is responsible for one of the deadliest eruptions in human history when it obliterated the nearby Pompeii in 79AD.

The ancient volcano last erupted in 1538 although it was only minor, lasting for eight days.

However, its formation some 39,000 years ago saw lava and rocks thrown hundreds of kilometres away in what was the most violent eruption in the past 200,000 years in Europe.

Haley: US Will Use Military In North Korea "If It Must"

The war drums are beating louder, and as US Ambassador to the UN Nicky Haley said moments ago as she speaks live (webcast), the North Korea launch is clear, sharp military escalation and the US will use the full range of its capabilities in North Korea including military force, "if it must." Her key soundbites from Reuters and Bloomberg:

HALEY: PREPARED TO USE THE FULL RANGE OF ITS CAPABILITIES TO DETER NORTH KOREA, INCLUDING MILITARY FORCE "IF WE MUST"

HALEY: U.S. WON'T HAVE PATIENCE FOR WATERED DOWN UN RESOLUTION

She also said that an escalated response needed in wake of ICBM launch, and sent a clear warning to China over supporting N. Korea whose launch shows North Korea "does not want to be part of a peaceful world":

HALEY SAYS COUNTRIES ALLOWING TRADE WITH NORTH KOREA IN VIOLATION OF U.N. SANCTIONS WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO CONTINUE TRADE WITH U.S.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is getting about as serious as is a heart attack, and escalating rapidly.

IF the US uses force, outside the limits of whatever Security Council Resolution is created, stemming from this emergency meeting, we are potentially looking at war with China, and this would be horrific indeed.

President Trump and his advisors could step down the rhetoric, by offering a little bit with which to negotiate with North Korea, perhaps by not having as many joint drills with the South Korean military, or eliminating them completely.

But President Trump and Rex Tillerson will not agree to this.

What could be offered to North Korea would be getting South Korea, North Korea, the US, and China to the negotiating table to agree to a complete peace deal, normalizing trade, and dropping financial sanctions, with which to replace the armistice, with the quid pro quo being that North Korea stops its nuclear weapons development program, with inspections to verify compliance, as is happening with Iran.

Unfortunately, this... would be logical. I don't know what Ambassador Haley's rhetoric is signaling, but it does not appear to me to be a peaceful, rational way of dealing with the issue of North Korea's weapons development program.

Zimbabwe 2.0: South Africa President Proposes Land "Expropriation Without Compensation"

With every passing day the formerly booming nation of South Africa is getting ever closer to the formerly banana republic of Zimbabwe.

On Wednesday, South Africa's ruling African National Congress proposed at its 5th annual national policy conference that in addition to potentially nationalizing the country's central bank, that land expropriation without compensation should be allowed where it is "necessary and unavoidable," President Jacob Zuma said.

Ordinary South Africans are meanwhile keeping close tabs on the policy conference, adamant that the ANC come up with solutions to overcome deep poverty, the uncontrollable rise in unemployment and inequality.

The ANC should once again become "the party that people voted for so many years ago," says Mbali Nyando, lamenting that 22 years into democracy, the living conditions of the people, black people in particular, are "deteriorating rather than improving."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I predicted this turn of events many years ago; and the problem is, without education on how things work, this expropriation of businesses and land cannot possibly work. It is doomed to be an epic fail, worsening the situation in South Africa to the point where there well be a revolution against the ANC, because it has not delivered to its people, in over 22 years.

Britain's warhead-watcher to simulate Trident nukes with Atos supercomputer

The Atomic Weapons Establishment, which provides warheads for the UK's nuclear weapons, is going to use a Bull supercomputer to simulate Trident nuclear warhead explosions.

Warhead components change over time through ageing, obsolescence and redesign, which impacts their operational efficiency. The AWE can't run test explosions any more, under the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty (to which the UK is signed up), which bans emission of nuclear yield (radioactive debris). Instead, AWE simulates atomic explosions with digital modelling and needs supercomputing facilities to do so.

Microsoft boasted it had rebuilt Skype 'from the ground up'. Instead, it should have buried it

Reviews of the Android and iOS versions of the app have been mostly terrible, and those posted to the Windows App Store have not been much better.

Chief among the issues is that the redesign imagines Skype as a youth-oriented social media app along the lines of Instagram or Snapchat, rather than a staid business communications tool.

"This new app is absolutely terrible," observes an individual posting to Google Play under the name Külli Kelder. "Skype is mostly used by people for professional use or for connecting with friends far away. This looks as far from simple and professional as it can be. Skype does NOT need to be Snapchat."

Scott Adams: Solving the North Korea Situation

I have some spare time this morning so I thought I would solve the North Korean nuclear threat problem.

The current frame on how all sides are approaching the problem is a win-lose setup. Either North Korea wins – and develops nukes that can reach the mainland USA – or the United States wins, and North Korea abandons its nuclear plans, loses face, loses leverage, and loses security. Our current framing of the situation doesn’t have a path to success.

So how do you fix that situation?

US Expands Military Footprint in Syria to EIGHT Bases, ‘Modifies’ Kobani Air Base

With very little fanfare from the western media, the US is quietly creating a hostile military footprint inside Syria.

By establishing a chain of airbases, military outposts and missile bases inside a country, the US is illegally, stealth-occupying a sovereign nation. The number of US military installations in Syria has increased to eight bases according to recent reports, and possibly nine according to one other military analyst.

We should also not forget the malevolent presence of Israel in the illegally annexed southern Syrian territory of the Golan Heights. This could just as easily be included in the list of US military outposts inside Syria.

The Original and Real Cause of the 1776 American Revolution

Franklin's friends then asked him how the American Colonies managed to collect enough money to support their poor houses, and how they could overcome this plague of pauperism. Franklin replied:

"We have no poor houses in the Colonies; and if we had some, there would be nobody to put in them, since there is, in the Colonies, not a single unemployed person, neither beggars nor tramps."

His friends could not believe their ears, and even less understand this fact, since when the English poor houses and jails became too cluttered, England shipped these poor wretches and down-and- outs, like cattle, and discharged, on the quays of the Colonies, those who had survived the poverty, dirtiness and privations of the journey. At that time, England was throwing into jail those who could not pay their debts. They therefore asked Franklin how he could explain the remarkable prosperity of the New England Colonies. Franklin replied:

Russia hits Islamic State in Syria with advanced cruise missiles

Russian strategic bombers fired advanced cruise missiles at Islamic State targets in Syria on Wednesday from a distance of 1,000 kilometers (621.37 miles) in a show of force Moscow said demolished three ammunition depots and a command post.

Moscow carried out the attack just two days before President Vladimir Putin and U.S. counterpart Donald Trump are due to hold heir first face-to-face meeting at the G20 summit in Hamburg, and after the Kremlin said they would discuss whether they were ready to team up against Islamic State in Syria.

The Russian Defence Ministry said the attack was carried out by Tupolev-95MS strategic bombers which had taken off from a base on Russian soil and refueled mid-air before firing at targets on the border between the Hama and Homs provinces.

"The strikes were carried out using high-precision Kh-101 missiles from a distance of about 1,000 kilometers," the ministry said in a statement.

Trump: Toward War in the Middle East

Now comes President Donald Trump. His policies for the Middle East are similar to those of the previous two administrations but on steroids. Trump has already escalated the wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, and Yemen. When Trump sends his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, to solve the seventy-year-old Palestinian-Israeli conflict, Israeli President Benjamin Netanyahu cannot hide his happiness with the appointment. The Democrats and the media are too busy with election results, hacking, and the Russian probe to pay much attention to Middle East policy, with one exception – Israel.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

However, this time, unlike the situation in Iraq, there is a 6,000 lb gorilla, snoozing on the Bosendorfer, regarding further American military misadventures in the Middle East; it goes by the name of Russia, and will, should Iran be attacked, to Iran's aid militarily.

IF, in fact, the US goes to war against Iran, to appease its Israeli handlers, look for the reinstitution of a draft, for both men and women; an horrific decline in the US economy; and the possibility that the US military may well not be able to emerge victorious from the conflict.

Pentagon Withholds Nuclear Base Inspection Results

Pass-Fail results of Pentagon inspections of America’s nuclear weapons facilities have historically been a better of public record, and one which has proven a repeated embarrassment, as those inspections have repeatedly shown substandard performance and disastrously bad security.

Officials seem to have figured a way around that, as they have begun withholding inspection results, including the very basic pass-fail details that the media usually knows about. This was apparently an internal policy recommendation as a reaction to all the embarrassing failures.

The real goal seems obvious. Facts about the systematic failures within America’s nuclear weapons program lead to embarrassing media coverage, and keeping those facts secret is ultimately much simpler than actually making improvements so the inspections are all passed.

Mass Execution of Turkmen; 230 Killed in Iraq

On Tuesday, Iraqi Maj. Faris Aboud reported that a single field hospital servicing the Old City neighborhood in Mosul received 300 wounded during just one day recently. And, many of these wounded were newly orphaned children, who had lost entire families. However, the United Nations figures for the whole of Nineveh province, where Mosul is located, were 289 killed and 93 wounded during June. The large contrast between these figures highlights the problematic nature of quantifying the dead and injured in this conflict.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This attempt at redrawing the map of the Middle East will only cause more chaos than already exists, if that is at all possible.

That Simpering Chimp, AKA, George Bush, should be cooling his heels in prison, facing a war crimes tribunal in the Hague, for the evil he has done to Iraq, and beyond.

The ultimate 3500-word guide in plain English to understand Blockchain

Unless you’re hiding under the rock, I am sure you’d have heard of Bitcoins and Blockchain. After all, they are the trending and media’s favorite topics these days — the buzzwords of the year. Even the people who’ve never mined a cryptocurrency or understand how it works, are talking about it. I have more non-technical friends than technical ones. They have been bugging me for weeks to explain this new buzzword to them. I guess there are thousands out there who feel the same. And when that happens, there comes a time to write something to which everyone can point the other lost souls to — that’s the purpose of this post — written in plain english that any regular internet user understands.

Over 500,000 Syrian Refugees Return To Government-Controlled Areas Of Syria

Crucial to the Western narrative of the Syrian conflict is the assertion that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is a brutal dictator who has taken to killing his own people over the course of Syria’s six-year-long conflict. While this narrative has been pervasive in media coverage of the Syrian conflict, it is now being debunked by the very Syrian refugees that the media purported were fleeing Assad in the first place.

Federal Agents Just Paid a Visit to Kathy Griffin — And Grilled Her for Over an Hour

When Kathy Griffin posed for a photoshoot holding a fake decapitated, bloody head of President Donald Trump in June, she likely didn’t think about the wide-reaching implications of her so-called “joke.”

While her controversial stunt resulted in some serious professional consequences, it also earned her a lengthy visit from the U.S. Secret Service.

Secret Service agents reportedly tracked down Griffin and interviewed her in person for more than an hour. Further, the investigation into the bloody head debacle remains open.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The First Amendment is part of what defines this country as unique.

That being said, a representation of the assassination of a sitting President is just .... not OK.

I probably share some of Griffin's frustrations about President Trump; but I share them with logic and responsibility on this site, and would never advocate for violence against him, first because it would be morally/spiritually wrong, and secondly, this government is extraordinarily adept at putting down violence "with extreme prejudice".

What I really don't get, however, is that the photographer who took this picture didn't have a clue about what the religious/historical antecedents for such an image were, and how this might make President Trump look more sympathetic because of it. Apparently, the man has had utterly no education in art history whatsoever.

Six families who own cottages next to Chris Christie's private beach were ordered to leave their homes under threat of ARREST while the governor lounged in the sun

Six families were left fuming after they were ordered out of their cottages located next to Chris Christie's private beach under the threat of being arrested while the New Jersey governor and his family soaked up some sun.

Howard and Betty Height were among the families told by police officers on Friday night that they had to leave their Island Beach State Park beach cottage or they'd be arrested.

'They're good guys,' Howard told NJ.com. 'They were just doing their job. But they said if we weren't gone by midnight, we'd be arrested.'

The Heights along with the five other families, received calls saying the park might close but lease holders could come in, on Friday.

However, they were still forced to leave. So the families packed their bags and left their properties.

An END to long lists of side effects on drug ads? FDA considers scrapping warning summaries amid concerns that TV viewers don't listen to them

Have you experienced fatigue as a side effect of reading lists of side effects in drug commercials? The Food and Drug Administration may have the cure for you: abolish the warnings altogether.
Health officials have proposed a study to assess whether consumers are actually reading the warnings on adverts.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I can assure you that Claire and I certainly read and listen to the warnings. I think this has more to do with boosting pharmaceutical sales than concern about viewer fatigue!

Pentagon vows to protect US & allies after Pyongyang’s ‘escalatory ICBM test’

The Pentagon has vowed to defend the US and its allies against any possible North Korean threat after Washington confirmed Pyongyang’s claim that it has developed the technology to potentially deliver a nuclear warhead to the US mainland.
The Pentagon has concluded that North Korea test-launched an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) that can potentially strike the United States. Initially, the US military had assessed the missile fired Tuesday morning to be of an intermediate-range category.

“We remain prepared to defend ourselves and our allies and to use the full range of capabilities at our disposal against the growing threat from North Korea,” Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White said in a statement. White also condemned Pyongyang’s "escalatory launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Here is the problem: Russia and China have put forth a completely reasonable proposal Russia, China: N. Korea must freeze nuclear activities, US halt THAAD deployment, which the US government has utterly rejected out of hand.

Unless there is a little conciliation, on the part of the US government, there is zero incentive for North Korea to come to the negotiating tables, and hammer out a peace agreement, with no trade restrictions or sanctions against North Korea, in exchange for it abandoning its nuclear weapons program.

If negotiations prove impossible, according to the current administration's thinking, that leaves only one option; a military attack against North Korea, which would leave thousands of South Koreans dead and wounded, and most probably insure that China would come to the military aid of its client state, North Korea.

SAUDI ARABIA ‘TOP OF THE LIST’ OF FOREIGN FUNDING FOR BRITISH TERRORISTS – THINK TANK 

Britain’s major trade and security partner in the Middle East, Saudi Arabia, is the main source of funding for Islamist extremism in the UK, a damning new report by the neo-conservative Henry Jackson Society (HJS) claims.

According to the HJS, money donated to terrorist organizations operating in Britain can be traced back to the Gulf states.

It says the Saudis’ 60-year commitment to the diffusion of Wahhabism, a hardline version of Islam, has led to the funding of British mosques and institutions linked to the wave of attacks in Europe over the last few years.

“There is a clear and growing link between foreign funding of Islamist extremism and the violent terrorism we have witnessed across the UK and Europe,” said the report’s author, Tom Wilson.

“The key now is to get ahead of the issue and find out the full extent of what has been going on. A public inquiry would go some way to informing the debate.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And one of the biggest areas of trade between the UK and Saudi Arabia has been in weapons.

Does UK’s lucrative arms trade come at the cost of political repression?

The UK has made 10 times more in arms sales to Saudi Arabia than it's given in aid to Yemen

UK activists demand end to Saudi Arabia, UAE arms sales

As long as the money is made, the UK's government, and the UK merchants of death, do not give a rat's anus as to how, or against whom, those weapons are used. Let's look at the genocide Saudi Arabia is inflicting in Yemen, shall we?!?

Saudi campaign has killed 1,400 Yemeni kids, UNICEF says (It is now July, 2017; we can be reasonably certain that the figure is considerably higher at this point).

And the domestic cost of violence and death is simply a small price to pay, according to the UK government, courtesy of radicalised youth who suddenly act out against their neighbors, or the general population as a whole.

SYRIAN WAR REPORT – JULY 5, 2017: RUSSIAN MILITARY POLICE TO DEPLOY IN NEW BUFFER ZONES?

The Russian Military Police may be deployed in buffer zones in Syria, Russia’s chief negotiator at the Astana talks and the president’s envoy for Syria Alexander Lavrentyev said on Tuesday when the fifth round of talks started in the Kazakh capital. According to him, the issue, including the status of de-escalation control forces, has not yet been finally agreed. The sides will begin setting up security zones within two-three weeks after signing relevant documents as well as establish a joint coordination center to monitor security in the zones. However, the Russian official pointed out that there are still difficulties in “establishing the lines of contact.”

Syrian government forces have liberated the Tulul Hayl area and advanced near Ramamin in the province of Homs. The Syrian army and its allies, backed up by the Russian Aerospace Forces, are preparing for a major push toward the ISIS-held town of Sukhna at the Palmyra-Deir Ezzor road.

Keep Prepping Because The Government’s Plan To Survive Nuclear War Doesn’t Include You

Needless to say, the United States has changed a lot since we officially declared our independence in 1776. What used to be a nation of the people, by the people, and for the people has become a nation of the government, by the government and for the government. The centralization of the federal bureaucracy and the accumulation of governmental power has created a significant divide between the people and the political elites in Washington D.C. These political elites seem to have developed a mentality that they deserve special privileges that the rest of the American people do not, such as the ability to keep classified information on a private server and not be prosecuted and exemptions from the Affordable Care Act.

But it’s not only political privileges that government officials enjoy; it turns out that they also have a plan in place to help them survive some kind of nuclear disaster, and that plan doesn’t include you.

Miners should produce 150,000 tons of coal per day, but at present the production capacity is 80-110 thousand tons.

Inventor Of Fraudulent Temperature ‘Hockey Stick’ Is Humiliated In Canadian Court

Penn State climate scientist, Michael ‘hockey stick’ Mann commits contempt of court in the ‘climate science trial of the century.’ Prominent alarmist shockingly defies judge and refuses to surrender data for open court examination. Only possible outcome: Mann’s humiliation, defeat and likely criminal investigation in the U.S.

The defendant in the libel trial, the 79-year-old Canadian climatologist, Dr Tim Ball (above, right) is expected to instruct his British Columbia attorneys to trigger mandatory punitive court sanctions, including a ruling that Mann did act with criminal intent when using public funds to commit climate data fraud. Mann’s imminent defeat is set to send shock waves worldwide within the climate science community as the outcome will be both a legal and scientific vindication of U.S. President Donald Trump’s claims that climate scare stories are a “hoax.”

HAMBURG POLICE DEPLOY WATER CANNONS AGAINST G20 PROTESTERS (PHOTOS, VIDEOS)

Riot police have used water cannons to disperse a large crowd of protesters rallying in Hamburg against the upcoming G20 summit.

Footage shared on social media shows dozens of police officers in full riot gear descending on the activists. Behind the police, lines of water cannons that are being used against the protesters.

As thousands of protesters converge on Hamburg to protest the G20 leaders summit, city authorities have introduced unprecedented security measures. Security forces expect around 8,000 potentially violent protesters, according to Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere.

In recent days, authorities have been cracking down on numerous protest camps that have mushroomed across the city. Police also seized a large assortment of homemade weapons that anti-capitalist demonstrators have allegedly planned to use to disrupt the summit.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

About what in the world could these people be so upset, other than the massive displacement , courtesy of the West's consistent wars for natural resources, from horrific waves of immigration by people who do not value national standards; rape and pillage with impunity; and cannot contribute because they do not have the skill set to allow them to contribute to society?!?

FALSE FLAG: A NEW REPORT IN SWEDEN REVEALS ERDO?AN ORCHESTRATED JULY 15 COUP IN TURKEY

Last year’s failed coup attempt in Turkey is nothing but a false flag orchestrated by Turkey’s autocratic President Recep Tayip Erdo?an and his henchmen to create a pretext for a mass persecution of critics and opponents in a state of perpetual emergency, a new detailed study titled ‘July 15: Erdo?an’s Coup’ by Stockholm Center for Freedom (SCF) concluded.
Based on publicly available data, the coup indictments, testimonials in court trials, private interviews, reviews of military expert opinions and other evidence collected by researchers, SCF is fairly confident that this attempt did not even qualify a coup bid in any sense of military mobilization which was unusually limited in numbers, confined in few cities, poorly managed, defied the established practices, tradition, rules of engagement and standard operating procedures in Turkish military.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The aftermath of this "false coup" gave Erdogan the political "cover" he needed to push his hard-line, autocratic regime into full power control mode.

This was an absolute tragedy for freedom, and for the Turkish people.

In North Korea, ‘Surgical Strike’ Could Spin Into ‘Worst Kind of Fighting’

The stakes are even higher now. American officials believe North Korea has built as many as a dozen nuclear bombs — perhaps many more — and can mount them on missiles capable of hitting much of Japan and South Korea.

Earlier in his term, Mr. Trump tried to change the dynamics of the crisis by forcing the North and its main economic benefactor, China, to reconsider Washington’s willingness to start a war. He spoke bluntly about the possibility of a “major, major conflict” on the Korean Peninsula, ordered warships into nearby waters and vowed to “solve” the nuclear problem.

But Mr. Trump has backed off considerably in recent weeks, emphasizing efforts to pressure China to rein in Mr. Kim with sanctions instead.

‘Water occupation’ of Palestine

There are few crimes more despicable than stealing your neighbour’s water, and polluting what’s left, then watching him and his children suffer thirst, disease and ruin. Most of us would want nothing to do with the perpetrators of such evil.

British Water describes itself as the voice of the water industry. It talks about best practice and corporate responsibility, and lobbies governments and regulators on behalf of its members. No doubt it does a good job. It also has international ambitions including in the Middle East. So presumably it knows what’s going on water-wise in the Holy Land.

British Water should know, for example, that the 400-mile long structure known worldwide as Israel’s Apartheid Wall bites deep into the Palestinian West Bank dividing and isolating communities and stealing their lands and water.
