Ryabkov: Washington Is Preparing A "Global Strike"

Washington continues to prepare a global strike, according to Deputy Foreign Minister of the Russian Federation Sergei Ryabkov to RIA Novosti . He noted that a continuation of negotiations on further nuclear reductions are impossible for this reason.

The United States continues, according to Ryabkov, its destabilizing activities. This includes the "creation of a global missile defense system, the continuation of the development of tools capable of inflicting a disarming strike without using nuclear weapons, and a destructive force equal to the range of strategic assets."

Navajo Water Supply is More Horrific than Flint, But No One Cares Because they’re Native American

The news out of Flint, Michigan brought the issue of contaminated drinking water into sharp focus, as it was revealed that officials at every level—local, state and federal—knew about lead-poisoned water for months but did nothing to address the problem.

Under state-run systems like utilities and roads, poorer communities are the last to receive attention from government plagued by inefficiencies and corrupt politicians. Perhaps no group knows this better than Native Americans, who have been victimized by government for centuries.

In the western U.S., water contamination has been a way of life for many tribes. The advocacy group Clean Up The Mines! describes the situation in Navajo country, which is far worse than in Flint, Michigan.

REMEMBER THAT GERMAN GOLD REPATRIATION? WELL, YOU MAY NOT HAVE HEARD ...

Now, when one puts those two statements together, one ends up with the idea that Germany stored its gold in the USA to keep it safe from the prospect of an invasion by the Warsaw Pact, and that it now wants its gold back from the USA because that trust in its ally is evaoprating under the solar flare of American-sponsored sanctions against Russia. Russia has no plans of invading Germany, and just about everybody knows this except the neocons in the American Pentagon and State department. To put it country simple: Germans want their country's gold on German soil because the USA is no longer to be trusted.

Explosive: The invention of an epidemic.

This is an article that explains a great deal—but, with apologies, it involves a line of reasoning, in order to reach a conclusion. That means some readers (not my regular readers) may find it odd. Some readers with short attention spans may suddenly want to switch to a wrestling show or a shopping network. To them I say: give this a try; it does have a payoff; it has its own kind of shock and surprise; explosions do go off in the mind; it is like a ten-car pile-up on the interstate in the fog, late at night; and there is a very nasty plot.

Out of nowhere, a month ago, we were told there was an outbreak of microcephaly in Brazil: over 4,000 cases of babies born with small heads and brain impairment...

New Bill May Force Politicians to Get Drug Tested

West Virginia just joined a number of other states in proposing to drug test welfare recipients, despite studies proving such testing does nothing but waste taxpayer money. So, a legislator in that state devised the ideal counter-measure: mandatory drug testing for lawmakers. House Delegate Shawn Fluharty has now introduced a bill requiring legislators to be tested for drugsbefore each voting session — and those who fail would be prohibited from voting and denied pay.

Baby Taken Off Hospice After Being Given Cannabis Oil – Now the Govt is Taking it Away From Her

By Matt Agorist

Last year, Meagan and Brandon Holt’s daughter Maddie, who suffers from a rare and debilitating disease called Zellweger Syndrome, was given only a short time to live, and her family was forced to do what no family can ever imagine – put a 2-year-old in hospice care...

But then something amazing happened. Meagan began researching the effects of cannabis on intractable, or untreatable epilepsy.

Being in Washington state, where medical and recreational marijuana is legal, Meagan got authorization, and then a beautiful group of people began donating whole plant cannabis extract to their family.

From the first dose, Meagan says, they immediately noticed a positive shift in her health...

But all this hope would quickly be brought to an end thanks to a law that makes it illegal for growers to share cannabis with families like Meagan and Maddie who need this powerful medicine...

Iran No Longer Accepting Dollars for Oil; Demanding Euros Instead

This is because Iran has apparently decided to no longer accept U.S. dollars for payment on both its new and outstanding oil sales. Instead it will receive its payment in euros...

American Lawmakers Must Pledge to Support Israel or Risk Funding, Says Former US Member of Congress

Former US lawmaker Cynthia McKinney says every candidate for Congress must pledge to support Israel's military superiority in the region and continued large-scale US funding for the Zionist state, or risk losing the ability to raise funds for election campaigns. "If you don't sign the pledge, you don't get money," she says in this in this interview with Marzieh Hashemi, an American-born journalist who lives in Iran. "You make a commitment that you would vote to support the military superiority of Israel, that the economic assistance that Israel wants, that you would vote to provide that," she adds. If a candidate does not sign the pledge or perform accordingly, "then you do not get money to run your campaign," McKinney says. After she made the pledge public, she says, the tactic changed, but the basic requirement remained. Runtime: 4:35 mins.

It is difficult to imagine what the next level might actually be in America's already servile deference to Israeli interests so she should perhaps be careful regarding what she commits herself to do ... [Sheldon] Adelson is the Republican version of Saban. He believes that the United States should nuke Iran as a "negotiating tactic," has an estimated $23.8 billion fortune derived mostly from casinos in Las Vegas and in Asia. He is a Republican funder for those prospective candidates who promote unlimited US support for Israel.

TPP Deal Just Signed: Paves Way for Authoritarian Technocracy

Beware TPP. It's nothing more than the further formalization of the worst part of the 20th century: The warfare/welfare state.

It's just been signed in New Zealand by the 12 negotiating parties and now US President Barack Obama is pressuring Congress to get it passed quickly. Obama wants it passed so that the US will be able to "write the rules of the road in the 21st century," enabling it to shape global trade to its own advantage.

Obama is nothing but a puppet for Western banking interests that want to disguise and expand their growing global control via TPP. It will be a disaster that places multinational corporations on an equal footing with nation-states.

TPP is an authoritarian exercise that further solidifies various kinds of global "bigness" while squeezing out the average citizen.

Did Hitler shake hands with black 1936 Olympic hero Jesse Owens?

It has long been regarded as the greatest sporting snub in history - when Adolf Hitler stormed out of the Olympic Stadium in Berlin because Germany had been humiliated by a black man.

Or so the story goes.
But now a veteran sports reporter in Germany has come forward to claim that, though Hitler did indeed leave the stadium after the race, it was not before shaking Owens' hand.
Siegfried Mischner, 83, claims that Owens carried around a photograph in his wallet of the Fuehrer doing just that.
Owens, who felt the newspapers of the day reported 'unfairly' on Hitler's attitude towards him, tried to get Mischner and his journalist colleagues to change the accepted version of history in the 1960s.
Mischner claimed Owens showed him the photograph and told him: 'That was one of my most beautiful moments.'

Everyone in Hillary’s Inner-Circle Lawyers-Up; FBI Quickly Closing In on Hillary

Here’s the problem with Hillary's most recent version of the story… which is about the 12th version by the way: Senior officials at the FBI came out today and said the FBI does NOT even conduct “security reviews.” They conduct CRIMINAL INVESTIGATIONS!

As you’ll see in the video below, adding to Hillary’s nightmare is the fact that the FBI recently contacted all the members of her ‘inner, inner circle’ about her emails; every single one of them lawyered up. Current FBI Director James Comey has already threatened to take the evidence against Hillary public if Loretta Lynch at the Department of Injustice does not indict Clinton, and thus far the FBI has been silent, so that suggests even though there hasn’t been an indictment yet, the FBI still believes one to be forthcoming…

Online polls: Trump triumphant in latest GOP debate

Donald Trump easily won an online poll to pick the winner of Saturday night’s GOP presidential debate.

“Seven Republican presidential candidates took to the stage for a debate Saturday night in New Hampshire. Who do you think won?” Time magazine asked its readers.

Trump took a resounding 65 percent of the more than 50,000 votes cast by late Sunday morning in the unscientific poll.

Chris Christie and Marco Rubio, who engaged in a memorable exchange during the debate, are tied for second in the poll with 8 percent support apiece.

Ted Cruz and John Kasich follow with 7 percent each.

Four percent picked Jeb Bush and 2 percent selected Ben Carson to round out the poll.

Poll: Trump’s lead grows in NH days before primary

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s lead widened in New Hampshire just days before the primary, according to the latest CNN/WMUR tracking poll.

Sen. Ted Cruz has 14 percent for third place.

One in four Germans say they back a policy to shoot unwanted illegal refugees at their borders

The Alternative for Germany (AFD) party leader Frauke Petry caused a storm a week ago when she advocated the right of border police to gun down migrants. But her comments have struck a nerve in a country being pushed to the brink by the crisis with 29 per cent of respondents in a weekend poll backing her extremist plan.

This, say observers, is proof of the greatest fear among liberal politicians - citizens pushed into the embrace of the far-right and its intolerant attitudes which brought Hitler to power in the 1930s.

Saudi military intervention in Syria amounts to war: Russian deputy

"Syria has to give official consent, to invite, otherwise it will be a war. The same applies to international law," Pavel Krasheninnikov, the head of the State Duma committee, told Interfax on Friday.

Krasheninnikov said that by promising a ground operation in Syria Riyadh now "intends to send troops to the territory of a sovereign state essentially without declaring a war."

Saudi Arabia on Thursday voiced readiness to participate in any ground operations in Syria if the US-led coalition allegedly targeting terrorists decides to start such operations.

US State Department spokesman John Kirby also welcomed the Saudi decision.

Saudi Arabia is a member of the so-called US-led coalition that has been conducting air raids against what are claimed to be the Daesh terrorists inside Syria without any authorization from the Syrian government or a UN mandate since September 2014.

Cameron is sowing the seeds of fascism

Cameron emerged seemingly triumphant from this week’s meeting with European Council President Donald Tusk. As expected, three of his four criteria for supporting Britain’s continued membership in the EU – that is, the three largely meaningless ones – were more or less agreed. But Cameron also claimed victory over the one that was expected to be the sticking point: a four-year ban on in-work benefits for new EU migrants. Under existing treaties, EU nationals working in the UK are entitled to be treated the same as British citizens. However, Tusk has now agreed that Britain should be allowed to apply an “emergency brake,” which would block benefits to EU workers in Britain in certain ‘emergency’ circumstances. As yet, exactly what circumstances would qualify as ‘emergencies’ remains undefined, but according to Reuters, what Cameron and Tusk have in mind is the country’s “welfare system [being] under excessive strain”.

‘65,000% radioactivity spike’: New York Gov. orders probe into water leak at Indian Point

In an “unacceptable” groundwater leak at the Indian Point nuclear power plant, three monitoring wells were discovered to contain “alarming levels of radioactivity,” the Governor of New York said, ordering an immediate environmental probe into the issue.

Health and environment commissioners were ordered by Governor Andrew Cuomo to begin an investigation into the leak of “radioactive tritium-contaminated water” at the Indian Point nuclear power plant after the operator, Entergy Nuclear Operations, raised the alarm.

The nation's infrastructure is falling apart. Every home has hot and cold, toxic radioactivity coming out the faucets!

Russian Rules of Engagement in Syria

Wont be any DC sponsored terrorists to torture Donald! Go Russia!

Russia’s intervention last year changed the dynamic on the ground. It holds key trump cards, waging real war on terrorism effectively.

It determined rules of engagement - turning the tide in a protracted conflict government forces were losing, now with the upper hand.

Fort Russ quoted an unnamed senior joint operation Syria, Russia, Iran, Hezbollah command official, saying:

“Russia has established new rules of engagement on the Syrian-Turkish border, and has retained the upper hand for the Syrian air force and the Syrian army.”

“Russia also refurbished and upgraded custom made Syrian MiG29SMT (warplanes), to protect the Russian air force squadrons, with clear orders to shoot down Turkish planes that enter the Syrian air space.”

THE GUANTÁNAMO IN NEW YORK YOU’RE NOT ALLOWED TO KNOW ABOUT

Mahdi Hashi, a young man of Somali origin who grew up in London, had never been to the United States before he was imprisoned in the 10-South wing of the Metropolitan Correctional Center in lower Manhattan in November 2012, when he was 23. For over three years, he has been confined to a small cell 23 hours a day without natural light, with an hour alone in a slightly larger indoor cage. He has had no physical contact with anyone. Apart from occasional visits by his lawyer, his human interaction has been limited to brief, transactional exchanges with guards and a monthly 30-minute phone call with his family.
