General Gilbert Diendere, the former military aide to the longtime Burkinabe dictator, Blaise Compaore, overthrew Burkina Faso’s interim democratic government and established a ruling junta inaptly called the “National Council for Democracy” with himself as the head.

Polio vaccines causing worldwide surge in childhood paralysis cases

In April 2012, Aaron Dykes of Truthstream Media reported that statistically speaking, polio had been eradicated in India, but the statistics don't tell the whole story.

In fact, he noted, there was a spike in "non-polio acute flaccid paralysis (NPAFP) - the very types of crippling problems it was hoped would disappear with polio but which have instead flourished from a new cause." How could that happen in a nation where polio had ostensibly been eradicated?

Quite simply, Dykes noted, the new spike was actually coming from the oral polio vaccine.

Rising CO2 levels are re-greening Africa's deserts, bringing abundance that lifts people out of poverty

Climate change, a phrase that typically instills fear in society, is being eyed by Arizona State University as something that could be beneficial. Contrary to those who view climate change as only having catastrophic consequences, experts from the university suggest that it is responsible for re-greening parts of the world and changing lives for the better.

Experts from the university engaged in a study that ultimately showed that the West African Sahel, the strip south of the Sahara desert, has been "regreening" ever since droughts in the 1970s and 80s killed more than 100,000 people. They maintain that increased rainfall caused by climate change has led to more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, which has spurred more plant growth and community-led farming efforts.

The region is turning around and experiencing a vast change from the drought and deaths that once plagued it. The area is greening, plants are growing, and people are coming together.

Pharma firm hikes life-saving drug price by 5,500%

The medical community is outraged by a 5,500 percent price hike for Daraprim, after a big NY-based pharmaceutical company purchased the patent for it. The drug has been on the market for over 60 years, and can be essential to certain AIDS and cancer treatments. The New York-based Turing Pharmaceuticals raised the price of Daraprim from $13.50 to $750 per pill in just over a month after buying the rights for the drug from Impax Laboratories.
The drug is used to treat toxoplasmosis, the second most common food-borne disease that affects patients suffering from AIDS and cancer. It has been produced since 1953 and is on the WHO List of Essential Medicines. But now medical associations are beating their drums about the sudden price hike and potential affordability of Daraprim as a treatment.

For most researchers the main goal is to publish their research in credible academic journals. Getting published is a victory for them, but one that comes with a downside that's seldom discussed. In order to get their work accepted they have to sign away their copyrights, which means that they can't freely share the fruits of their labor.

MI6 spy found dead in locked bag 'probably worked undercover as woman'

An MI6 spy found dead inside a locked bag worked undercover as a woman, a forensics expert has claimed.

Codebreaker Gareth Williams, whose naked body was found padlocked in a holdall in his London flat, owned £15,000 of women’s clothing, including a red wig and make-up.

Police investigating his mysterious death suggested he was a gay transvestite interested in bondage who died in a sex game gone wrong.

But forensic investigator Peter Faulding believes the unconventional attire was for work, rather than pleasure.

Low Oil Hitting Saudi Arabia Hard

There’s a couple of tidbits out today about Saudi Arabia. First up, its reserves continue to shrink. The IMF projects that Saudi Arabia’s budget deficit will exceed 400 billion riyals ($107 billion) this year as lower oil revenues hurt the economy. Oil generally accounts for 90% of government revenue, whereas this year it will only account for 81%. Given this turn for the worse, the government may assess removing subsidies on gasoline, which currently costs 16 cents per liter, while a shift towards renewables may also be considered.
Secondly, Saudi Arabia’s state-owned oil company, Saudi Aramco, has confirmed that the acting president and chief executive, Amin H. Nasser, will assume these positions on a permanent basis. And in a final OPEC-related tidbit, an internal report from the cartel projects oil prices rising at a steady $5 per annum, to reach $80 by 2020.

On Saturday, the Japanese upper house of parliament approved the bills overturning Japan’s pacifist constitution and paving way toward its military deployment abroad. The Asahi Shimbun newspaper survey showed that 51 percent opposed the new security laws adopted Saturday, while only 30 percent of Japanese residents voted in favor of the bills. The poll also revealed that Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s approval rating stood at 35 percent, dropping to a record low number since he assumed office for his second term in December 2012. Only 16 percent of those polled said the Japanese government had made noticeable efforts to get the public's understanding of the bills.

Kremlin dismisses Poroshenko’s allegations on discrimination against Crimean Tatars

"As for any possible words on Crimean Tatars, if it is unfounded criticism or accusations, then it will remain unfounded criticism," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Monday. Peskov commented on Poroshenko’s promise in an interview with Ukraine’s media outlets to raise the issue of "discrimination against Crimean Tatars" at the UN General Assembly’s session. "As a rule, everything that we’ve heard before has no grounds and does not absolutely reflect the real state of events in Crimea," Peskov stressed, adding that it is not his job to "forecast the speeches of other heads of state." Poroshenko is expected to address the UN General Assembly on September 29.

Putin: Syria does not intend to fight with Israel

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday expressed confidence that Syria does not need warfare with Israel. "As for shelling, we know, we condemn that shelling. As far as I know, makeshift missile systems are used in it," he said at talks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has paid a visit to Moscow because he is concerned with the deteriorating situation in the Middle East. "Israel and Russia have common interests-ensuring stability in the Middle East. I am here because of the complicated security situation, it is becoming more and more complicated," Netanyahu said at the meeting. Putin in his turn said that Moscow’s position in the Middle East will always remain responsible.

US presidential hopeful Donald Trump told US television on Saturday that he would love to meet the Russian president, if Vladimir Putin wants to meet with him. Trump was asked about the possibility of a meeting after his adviser Michael Cohen shared his opinion with a US radio show that a meeting between the politicians was "better than likely" when Putin attends the UN General Assembly session, which opened on September 15 and will conclude its General Debate on October 6. "People want to meet Donald Trump. They want to know Donald Trump," said Cohen. Trump explained on Saturday that "I had heard that he wanted to meet with me."

"Cargo traffic from Ukraine is stalled. Passenger busses and cars go either way as usual. Russian checkpoints are prepared to let through both passengers and cargoes in the normal mode," the border guards department said. Crimea’s head Sergey Aksyonov said that Ukrainian goods in Crimean supermarkets will be fully replaced by their Russian substitutes within two weeks. "Practically all supermarket chains and individual businessmen have concluded contracts with farm producers on the mainland. Already now 90% of foods at the outdoor bazaars are Russian-produced. In two week’s time there will be no Ukrainian foods left on the supermarket shelves," he told the Rossiya-24 round-the-clock news channel.

While analyzing the ongoing processes and events of today, one can get a strong impression that Washington “puppeteers” have decided to abandon the existing model of international relations to build a completely new one. The concept of globalization that has been pivotal for decades is now finally left aside, instead we are being presented with the concept of global instability, that should allow the US to preserve its domination in the world by destroying the stable political formations, which will ultimately become the breeding ground for numerous conflicts. In the meantime, Washington will be manipulating opposing regional parties in different parts of the world to make them confront each other.

Many, though not all, of the additional refugees would be Syrian, American officials have said. The United States has taken in just 1,500 refugees since the start of the Syrian war in 2011, and President Barack Obama last week committed to accepting 10,000 more over the coming year.

The Implosion of US Military Morale

WE are being set up for a major defeat and destruction!

Col.David “Hack” Hackworth said decades ago that the Perfumed Princes of the Pentagon got control of the Army and other U.S. forces during the long Vietnam catastrophe, destroyed morale, lost the war, and kept moving up to the top to be the staff generals and admirals in the Pentagon. The scuttlebutt was always that they managed their way up by being ass-kissers.

Business falls victim to Britain's biggest-ever telephone banking scam as it hands over more than £1million to conman

A business was tricked into handing over more than £1million to a bogus caller in one of Britain's biggest-ever telephone banking scams.

The conman phoned the company, based in Suffolk, and claimed there was a virus on the firm's internet banking facility.

He persuaded a member of staff that the firm's money should be transferred into separate holding accounts while the bank fixed the problem.

He then talked the staff member into letting him download remote access software on the firm's computer.

A Suffolk Police spokesman said the software enabled the caller to access the firm's accounts and transfer the money out and into other accounts.

During the call, the fraudster managed to disguise his own telephone number to show the number of the bank's fraud team, which was on its website.

China launches 20 micro satellites using new carrier rocket

China today successfully placed 20 micro satellites into space using its latest carrier rocket powered by pollution-free fuels, boosting the Communist giant's competitiveness in the global satellite launch sector, state media reported.

The rocket, Long March-6, was launched from Taiyuan Satellite Launch Centre in north China's Shanxi Province which carried 20 micro-satellites into the space for space tests.

The new 29.3 metres high rocket, fuelled by liquid propellant made of liquid oxygen and kerosene, is China's first carrier rocket that uses fuel which is free of toxicity and pollution, Gao Xinhui, an official at China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation, said.

"Using such propellant can cut costs by a great margin," state-run Xinhua news agency quoted Gao as saying.

Greece election: Alexis Tsipras hails 'victory of the people'

With 60% of votes counted, Syriza is projected to be just short of a majority but the Independent Greeks have agreed to join a coalition.

The latest figures give Syriza 35% of the vote, compared with New Democracy's 28%. The far-right Golden Dawn is set to be the third biggest party, with 7.1% of the vote.

The snap election was called after Syriza lost its majority in August. This followed the signing of an unpopular new financial bailout deal with international creditors.

Turnout in this poll was just over 55%, down from 63% in January and low by Greek standards.

Syria conflict: New US-backed rebels cross from Turkey

A group of 75 US-backed rebels has crossed into northern Syria from Turkey to fight jihadists, the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says.

The rebels crossed into Syria in 12 vehicles equipped with machine guns over the weekend, it added.

It comes days after a top US general said only a handful of rebels trained by the US were still fighting in Syria.

Republican politicians have branded the $500m (£323m) scheme to train and equip around 5,000 rebels a "total failure".

"Seventy-five new fighters trained in a camp near the Turkish capital entered Aleppo province between Friday night and Saturday morning," said the observatory's director, Rami Abdel Rahman.

Hundreds of officers in the Greater Toronto Area disciplined for ‘serious’ misconduct in past five years

In the last five years, nearly 350 officers from police services in the Greater Toronto Area — Toronto, Peel, York, Halton and Durham — and the OPP have been disciplined for what their own services call “serious” misconduct, a Star investigation has found.

Roughly one in five of those officers was disciplined because he or she had been found guilty of criminal offences, including assaulting his or her spouse, drunk driving, possessing drugs and theft.

Nearly 50 of the officers were disciplined more than once; some were nailed for new offences just months after being penalized for past misconduct. One officer was busted for being drunk behind the wheel twice in one week.

Someone with a criminal record would almost never be hired as a cop. But many cops who are convicted of criminal offences are allowed to keep working. Only seven police officers were successfully forced out of their jobs.

Seismic Activity in Chile Is Breaking Records

There are Class 4 & 5 quakes virtually every ten minutes in Northern Chile. This is another world class major rupture in the Earth's crust, this is this year's Great Event. I think that Chile is very lucky that the rupture is "slowly" cracking the Earth with frequent comparatively modest activity rather than more dramatically breaking the crust in a Class 9 mega-event.

Quake activity is propagating in other locations in South America, Central, and North America along the western edges.

As predicted here and nowhere else, a Class 4 struck today on the Juan De Fuca plate margin off the northwestern tip of Canada's Vancouver Island. (I can not predict exact locations nor magnitudes, only the higher than average probability of increased quake activity in certain regional zones based on pattern sequence of seismic activity originating in the Mid Atlantic Great Rift).

I suspect very strongly that more quakes are coming.on the western edge of the Americas during the next 12 days.

Greek conservative leader concedes election defeat

Greece's New Democracy party leader has conceded defeat in national elections to his leftist rival, Former Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras.

The leader of the conservative party, Vangelis Meimarakis, said on Sunday that the priority for the country was to form a government.

"The electoral result appears to be concluding with Syriza and Mr Tspiras in the lead," Meimarakis told journalists, adding, "I congratulate him and urge him to create the government which is needed and come to parliament."

The concession came as latest exit polls suggest that Tsipras’s Syriza party has won 33 percent to 35 percent of the vote compared to between 28.5 to 30 percent for New Democracy.

In the race for third place, the neo-Nazi Golden Dawn Party is expected to pick up between 6.5 and 8.0 percent of the vote.

Russia Should Ignore Washington’s Blind Arrogance on Syria

The trouble with arrogance is that it is intellectually blinding; and the trouble with being intellectually blind is that you fail to see your own contradictions – no matter how preposterous those contradictions may be.

In the past week, Washington has been up in arms about Russia’s decision to step up its military support for the government of Syria.

Top ISIS commander – “star pupil” of US special forces training

Sporting a recognizable red beard and happy to pose for photos, Shishani has acted as a very public face for some of ISIS’ most notorious successes.

It was Shishani who posed with the stolen US Humvees that ISIS had seized from Mosul and brought back into Syria.

And it was Shishani who had led successful ISIS military campaigns throughout Syria as well as a blitz through western Iraq that put the group within 100 miles of Baghdad.

These military successes are not simply the result of any innate military capabilities. Instead, Shishani spent years conducting military campaigns against the Russians, first as a Chechen rebel and then as a soldier in the Georgian military. During Shishani’s four years in the military, from 2006 to 2010, his unit received some degree of training from American special forces units.

Double-stunner: Stargazers to see total lunar eclipse, super moon in 1 night, first in 30 years

Sky watchers are getting ready for an extremely rare astronomical highlight of the season: a total lunar eclipse and a super moon that will happen simultaneously. The stunning show will be visible to the naked eye, and will start next Sunday, September 27, between 5pm and 6pm PDT time (between midnight and 1am GMT on Monday). The super moon, or a perigee full moon, means that the moon will seem 14 percent bigger, 30 percent brighter and fuller than usual. It happens because the moon will be at its closest point in its orbit around the Earth.
The total lunar eclipse will start the same Sunday at 7:11pm PDT (2am GMT on Monday) and will end at 8:23pm PDT on Sunday (3:23 GMT on Monday). The next super moon and a total lunar eclipse combination is only set to happen in 2033, so try not to miss the stunning show!

German fighter jets start patrolling Baltic skies with full ammo

German Air Force Eurofighter Typhoon fighter jets have started patrolling the airspace of the three Baltic States with full ammunition loads. The move is designed to “motivate” German pilots, the military say. German fighter jets are flying the Baltic skies fully armed “for the first time since the beginning of the Ukrainian crisis,” the DPA news agency reports citing the German Air Force’s Inspector General Karl Müllner. He explained the move was not about “escalation,” but it is needed to ensure parity when encountering a potential enemy. The German military official did not elaborate on which Air Force might become the enemy. Müllner added that ammunition on board Eurofighters is also necessary to “motivate pilots” on missions in the Baltic skies.
In September-December 2014, German fighters patrolled Latvian, Lithuanian and Estonian airspace with empty magazines. Müllner said that was a political decision aimed at de-escalating tensions.

No nation in history has ever threatened peace more than the United States, US author Stephen Lendman emphasizes, adding that Washington bears full responsibility for creating the notorious Islamic State. "Washington bears full responsibility for creating ISIS [ISIL]. Russian UN envoy Vitaly Churkin traced its origin from Bush's Iraq war, saying it 'became active when (it) began storming Baghdad…So, the Islamic State ripened in Iraq during the US occupation. (America) should be blamed for' its rise and proliferation," Lendman pointed out in his article for Global Research.
Remarkably, the recent poll carried out by the British polling organization ORB International, an affiliate of WIN/Gallup International, has found out that 82 percent of Syrians blame the US for creating ISIL, while 79 percent claimed that "foreign fighters made war worse." Furthermore, the poll has indicated that Bashar al-Assad's positions in Syria have strengthened from a year ago.

Genocide in Yemen

snip: US-Saudi enforced blockade prevents enough food, medical supplies, fuel, clean water and other essentials from reaching desperate people in need. Human Rights Watch said what’s ongoing “may amount to starvation of civilians as a weapon of warfare” - genocide by deprivation.

Fed Opens Negative Interest Rate Pandora's Box: What Happens Next

As we already commented extensively, while the Fed's dovish non-hike was a violent surprise for the market, and has led to what may be the first thoroughly unanticipated (at least by the market) policy mistake by the Federal Reserve (judging by the market), the biggest news was the very symbolic, yet all too ominous, negative interest rate forecast in the Fed's projection materials by one FOMC member.

Syriza leading in exit polls as disillusioned Greeks cast votes in snap election

As votes are being counted in Greece, exit polls show it’s a neck-and-neck race between the leading political forces - the leftist Syriza and conservative New Democracy parties. Neither promises an end to austerity.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Then why bother having an election at all? Let's just straight to beheadings! :)

Greeks Without Choice in Sunday Election

“Suckers think that you cure greed with money, addiction with substances, expert problems with experts, banking with bankers, economics with economists, and debt crises with debt spending”
? Nassim Nicholas Taleb

snip: “If God and his angels came down to produce a reform package for Greece, the Troika would have turned it down it down, because they were interested in humiliating us and demonstrating to the people of Spain and Ireland that if they vote in the way that the Troika doesn’t like, they will be crushed.”

The only uncertainty about Greece’s future is how much worse things will get than already. It’s hard imagining anything in prospect able to end its long nightmare.

The only solution is popular grassroots revolution. No sign of one exists. Business as usual continues.

Apple’s iOS 9 software update is crashing older iPhones, iPads

A significant number of Apple customers are reporting their mobile devices have crashed after attempting to upload the new iOS 9 operating system, the latest in a line of launch glitches for the tech giant.

Twitter and other social media were awash with disgruntled customers reporting two distinct faults, with one appearing to be linked specifically to older models of Apple iPhones and iPads.

“It is beyond inconvenient to not be able to use your phone for a day,” said student Pip Cordi as staff in the Apple store in central Sydney looked at her phone on Friday. “I have a lot of apps that I use for school — things like language apps and dictionaries and that’s all really important for my studies.”

Another iPhone user, Zorry Coates, said she had spent three hours in the Apple store and had been left with the option of either returning her phone to factory settings — losing any non-backed-up data — or waiting until Apple technicians announced an update.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The latest update for Skype in Claire's iPad completely changed all the menus. It's more obfuscated than ever before, and the performance is still just as crappy as ever.

International Observers Agree to Attend Local Elections in Donetsk

A number of international observers have agreed to attend local elections in the eastern Ukrainian self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR), while participation of representatives from the Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR) remains an open question, DPR negotiator at reconciliation talks Denis Pushilin said Sunday. "Regarding the ODIHR, the question remains open. They do not intend to participate as observers, while a number of other international observers have already given their consent," Pushilin told journalists.

Iceland Counters US Military Claims of 'Russian Flights'

Iceland's foreign minister Gunnar Bragi Sveinsson countered, saying that interest in NATO air defenses in Iceland is coming entirely from the side of the US... The US government attempted to convince Iceland to accept a higher US military presence over what it called increased Russian military flights in the region, Icelandic media reported. Iceland's foreign ministry released figures showing that Russian military flights anywhere near the country's airspace have actually decreased more than five times compared to 2007. None of the flights breached Icelandic airspace. "The Russians have long done transit flights where they pass close by Iceland, but they’ve recently made several circumnavigation flights," US deputy defense secretary Bob Work told DefenseNews earlier in September. However, the US military's claims do not match up with Iceland's own figures, which show that Russia only made two flights anywhere near the country's airspace in 2015.

Kiev Hopes to Win Crimeans' Hearts and Minds…by Cutting Off Their Food

Ukrainian lawmakers, a group of Crimean Tatar activists and Right Sector militants have joined forces to enforce a blockade on all food supplies headed into Crimea from Ukraine. Crimean lawmakers have already described the operation as a "political farce" reminiscent of old comedy cartoons.

Bill Gates and Poroshenko conspiring to sterilize Ukrainians?

The report of the conversation between Poroshenko and Bill Gates passed by as if nothing was unordinary: “Bill Gates and Poroshenko discussed the immunization of Ukrainians against Polio.” But actually, this event is a landmark. And a very sad one for the people of Ukraine.
Let’s sort out a bit why this billionaire, who before busied himself with vaccinations exclusively in African and Asian countries, and partially in Latin America, is suddenly interested in Ukraine.
And what is behind Gate’s billions of dollars in donations to various globalist structures which reduce the population of the planet.

Russia gives Syria satellite Intel on ISIS

The Russian Federation has recently boosted their military aid to the embattled Syrian Armed Forces, providing not only heavy weaponry, armor, and military personnel, but also, satellite imagery that has assisted the Syrian Arab Air Force (SAAF) with locating the positions of the enemy combatants across Syria.

China in Syria? Ready to Join Russia in ISIS fight

Some pundits may point to China’s non-interference principle as an impasse to action. However, China’s non-interference principle is more in reference to meddling in other countries’ domestics politics, such as US/western penchant for intervention and violating other countries’ sovereignty to overthrow autocratic regimes they dislike. Non-interference policy does not mean inaction when China’s security and interests are threatened. It is not difficult for China to take action when its core interests are threatened–that means violation of its sovereignty, territorial integrity, economic development and regime survival. If Assad asks and gives permission for Russia, China and other SCO members to assist him militarily, that would be in accordance with international law.

Left Behind: US Jet Fighters Hold No Candle to Russian, Chinese Rivals

The Lockheed Martin F-35 fifth-generation jet fighter has its share of issues. Meanwhile, the F-22 Raptor fleet was terminated after only 187 aircraft were built, less than 50 percent of the 381 jets needed by the military.

According to the article, the F-22 was a formidable combat aircraft, with a balanced combination of stealth, speed and maneuvering capabilities.

"It’s simply the best air superiority fighter the United States has ever produced and it was a foolish, shortsighted decision to end its production run prematurely," Majumdar wrote.

Ignoring that itty-bitty problem of suffocating its own pilots, of course!
