How the Refugee Crisis Will Bring Civil War to Germany

The million plus refugees that have arrived in Germany over the past year, fall under both of these categories. They will be neither prosperous nor compatible. If previous immigrant groups are any indication, such as the migrant wave of Turks that arrived on work visas several decades ago, then this new batch of refugees will be a massive of failure. There are 3 million Turks living in Germany, many of them second or third generation. They are largely poor, uneducated, dependent on welfare, and restricted to self-imposed urban ghettos. By and large they have failed to integrate or adopt German culture in any way.

Swedish Police Caught Covering up Migrant Sex Abuse at Concert

Swedish police have recently been accused of covering up multiple sexual assaults against teenage girls at a concert in August. They didn’t present this fact to the public until Monday, after a Swedish newspaper covered the story over the weekend. 20 girls from the venue filed complaints of sexual assault, and 200 men were ejected from the concert, though it’s not clear if any of them were arrested or charged.

Please, Stop Locking Up Pregnant Women For Using Drugs

A short film released Monday shines a light on a recent trend among states to criminally prosecute women for using drugs while pregnant. The video, created by Brave New Films, investigates the effect of "feticide laws" across the country. Originally passed to protect pregnant women from violence, women's health advocates say these laws are now being used to prosecute pregnant women themselves.
In 2014, Tennessee became the first state in the nation to pass a law allowing women to be charged with a crime if their babies are born with symptoms of drug withdrawal.

The state was responding to a dramatic rise in the number of babies born with "neonatal abstinence syndrome," a group of symptoms that can occur when babies are in withdrawal from exposure to narcotics. Medical professional stress that while babies with NAS may be irritable, the condition is treatable and has not been associated with long-term negative consequences.

Yet the same cannot be said of Tennessee's law.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Such a policy is so completely brain dead, I hardly know where to begin.

One does NOT punish a pregnant woman because she is ill; you offer her treatment, counseling, and the inspiration, and care, to make it possible for her to deliver a healthy baby, and get clean and sober in the process.

And it most likely would cost far less than incarceration would, so would someone please tell me, what would the downside be here?!?

Exposing the Fraud of Grocery Store Organic Eggs

The Cornucopia Institute addressed these issues in a recent egg report. According to Mark Kastel, co-founder of the Cornucopia Institute, there's a factory farm takeover of the egg industry underway, with large CAFOs now controlling 80 percent of the organic egg market.

Yet less than 9 percent of hens raised in the U.S. are raised without cages.3 The organic label simply means the hens have been raised on organic feed. It is not an indication that they've been humanely or sustainably raised.

45 million Americans now on food stamps ... That's 45 million people who will erupt into social chaos when the free money stops flowing

The number of Americans receiving food stamps exceeds 45 million – a level which has remained relatively constant for more than four years now. That figure accounts for nearly 20 percent of the population of the country.

In 1969, there were 2,800,000 Americans in the food stamp program. Since then the number has increased more than 15-fold.

HDP deputies: Van incident is a mass execution, not clash

12 youths aged between 18-25 have been executed as a result of a house-raid conducted by Turkish terrorists in the central Edremit district of Van province early this morning. ID details of the youths remain unknown.

‘IT IS A MASS EXECUTION’

HDP Van MP Lezgin Botan who spoke to ANF about the incident said bodies of 12 youths, all aged 18-25, have been taken to a hospital morgue. Botan said the youths were shot in the head, and described the incident as not a clash but mass execution. He added that police forces have blockade the scene of the executions and hospital where youths are being held now.

‘There is NO Debate’: Facts the Herald Sun Hides About the Anti-Vaccine ‘Myths’

Despite the fact that these children were developing perfectly until their shots, and began to show signs of regression—or worse—either immediately after, or in the days following their vaccinations, they are told it was a mere coincidence. There was absolutely no connection between the vaccines and the obvious change in their children, the doctors tell them.

We hear the same story over and over and over again.

So should we just accept what the Herald Sun is telling us? Are we wrong to question vaccines?

The article explains and ‘debunks’ seven ‘myths’ that these crazy anti-vaxxers are spreading about vaccinations, each in a matter of paragraphs.

Let’s take a closer look at each though, one by one, and see whether there is in fact ‘NO Debate’, or whether maybe, just maybe, the Herald Sun’s health editor, Grant McArthur, who penned the article, neglected to tell us the whole story.

THE STATE OF THE NATION: A DICTATORSHIP WITHOUT TEARS

While only 1 in 5 Americans claim to trust the government to do what is right, the majority of the people are not quite ready to ditch the American experiment in liberty. Or at least they’re not quite ready to ditch the government with which they have been saddled.

As The Washington Post concludes, “Americans hate government, but they like what it does.” Indeed, kvetching aside, Americans want the government to keep providing institutionalized comforts such as Social Security, public schools, and unemployment benefits, fighting alleged terrorists and illegal immigrants, defending the nation from domestic and foreign threats, and maintaining the national infrastructure. And it doesn’t matter that the government has shown itself to be corrupt, abusive, hostile to citizens who disagree, wasteful and unconcerned about the plight of the average American.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The election process in this country is like participating in a large Kabuki theatre piece, where people have the illusion than when they vote, they are actually in control of the political process: they are absolutely not.

It is the large corporations which ultimately vet the candidates we get to vote for, and long, long before that process happens. That way, they understand that the needs and concerns of the corporations will be addressed, and first, no matter whether they are the needs and concerns of citizens struggling to make ends meet.

We now have a government of the corporations, by the corporations, and for the corporations, period, end of discussion.

And we have "pay to play" politics by foreign nations, which understand that money buys influence, again, even if that influence is detrimental to the lives and well being of Americans.

Dreams die hard; and that American dream of each generation having it better than did the generation before is just a fading memory of the America we used to know.

No matter who gets elected, offshoring/outsourcing will continue apace; American kids are getting dumbed down with Common Core to the point that by the time they graduate, they will be singularly unable to compete with their Asian or Indian counterparts; we are constantly surveilled and tracked, through every system imaginable; the alleged "justice system" is a complete and utter joke for the poor, and the one percenters are able to mock it with impunity, and walk away from whatever evil they may have committed.

There seems to be a fear and loathing in DC about those people who have been pushed to to the margins of society by the very policies which created the one percenters; and that fear is being answered with massive suppression of any kind of movements which question the status quo.

We appear to be in a "post-democratic republic" phase of this country's existence, and I do not know quite what will bring back the freedoms and liberties I remember; but that will not stop me from trying, in the most peaceful, logical, and faith-sustained way humanly possible.

Iran days from disabling Arak reactor core, paving way for lifting of sanctions

Conflicting reports come from Iran, as it moves to fulfil its obligation to disable the Arak heavy water nuclear reactor - the last major condition for the lifting of sanctions under a controversial international deal signed last year.

The fate of the Arak reactor, which could be used to produce plutonium, was one of the largest stumbling blocks for the agreement signed in July. Tehran agreed to retrofit the facility so that it could be used for advanced nuclear research and production of radioactive isotopes, while leading foreign powers pledged to provide technical help for the endeavor.

Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization spokesman Behrouz Kamalvandi told the Etemad newspaper that Arak would be disabled and the nuclear deal fully implemented in no more than seven days.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Look for a last-ditch attempt by Israel to kill the deal and keep the sanctions in place.

New York Times: Germany Should Close Borders, Conduct Mass Deportations, AND Merkel Must Resign

ON New Year’s Eve, in the shadow of Cologne’s cathedral, crowds of North African and Middle Eastern men accosted women out for the night’s festivities. They surrounded them, groped them, robbed them. Two women were reportedly raped.

Though there were similar incidents from Hamburg to Helsinki, the authorities at first played down the assaults, lest they prove inconvenient forAngela Merkel’s policy of mass asylum for refugees.

That delay has now cost Cologne’s police chief his job. But the German government still seems more concerned about policing restless natives — most recently through a deal with Facebook and Google to restrict anti-immigrant postings — than with policing migration. Just last week Merkel rejected a proposal to cap refugee admissions (which topped one million last year) at 200,000 in 2016.

‘Regrettable’ is as far as our criticism of Saudi Arabia is allowed to go

And they’re not actually in Yemen, merely helping to choose the targets – which have so far included hospitals, markets, a wedding party and a site opposite the Iranian embassy. Not that our boys and girls selected those particular “terrorist” nests for destruction, you understand. They’re just helping their Saudi mates – in the words of our Ministry of Defence – “comply to the rules of war”.

End of Erdogan’s Power Grab? Turkey May Be the Middle East’s Biggest Loser

Turkey and its “weakening strongman, Erdogan” seem to be experiencing difficult times in the Middle East; the country is losing its grip on the region after failing to provide any “meaningful contribution to a possible solution” to the Syrian crisis, according to a Washington-based website on the Middle East, Al-Monitor.

The outlet cites several facts as examples of its aforementioned conclusion. The first is Ankara’s recent involvement in the Saudi-led 34-nation military alliance of Sunni nations, which is seen by many analysts as “a Sunni coalition through which Saudi Arabia aims to check and reduce Iran’s regional influence”.

Unbelievable scam of cancer industry blown wide open: $100 billion a year spent on toxic chemotherapy for many FAKE diagnoses... National Cancer Institute's shocking admission affects millions of patients

With $100 billion a year now being spent on toxic chemotherapy treatments that damage patients and cause "chemo brain" side effects, a panel of cancer experts commissioned by the National Cancer Institute publicly admitted two years ago that tens of millions of "cancer cases" aren't cancer at all.

Tens of millions of people who have been diagnosed with "cancer" by crooked oncologists -- and scared into medically unjustified but extremely profitable chemotherapy treatments -- never had any sort of life-threatening condition to begin with, scientists have confirmed.

But she adds that in an election where nothing is going as expected at the top of the GOP ticket, she sees a chance for a relative political newcomer to unseat a five-term senator who was the party's presidential nominee eight years ago, but has fallen out of favor with some in the conservative wing.

A stunning new Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) report circulating in the Kremlin today states that one of the United States Navy’s top commanders was relieved of his command a few hours ago after he sent out an “email/posting” revealing that President Barack Obama was in the process of purchasing a multi-million dollar seaside luxury villa in the United Arab Emirates city (UAE) of Dubai.

Oregon Victory – Judge and 2 US Marshals in Route to Restore Constitutional Rule of Law

Ranchers and militia verify the BLM’s modus operandi of land grabbing through various means intended to drive the ranchers off their property. Common knowledge now verifies vast mineral wealth on those ranchers lands, many of which have been seized by the Feds, not only in Oregon but reports in Arizona, Utah and elsewhere. The land grab is allegedly driven by greed to gain the wealth of minerals much of which is sold overseas especially to China as a primary United States creditor.

Many sources confirm numerous cases where corrupt Federal government bureaucrats contriving “endangered species,” arson, terrorism or flooding ranchers off their land by driving down the price of land, then forcing sales of land at sub-market prices. The land then is possessed by those bureaucrats who contrived the forced sale.

3 Month LIBOR Rate

LIBOR stands for London Interbank Offered Rate. It's the rate of interest at which banks offer to lend money to one another in the wholesale money markets in London. It is a standard financial index used in U.S. capital markets and can be found in the Wall Street Journal. In general, its changes have been smaller than changes in the prime rate.

Webmaster's Commentary:

The Popular Myth of Democracy in America

people have always been dispossessed. only the groups excluded from power shift.

snip: America is a one-party state with two wings, indistinguishable from each other on issues mattering most - militantly pro-war, pro-business, anti-populist no matter what names and faces hold top positions.

Police state laws enforced by powerful security forces at the federal, state and local levels assure wealth and privilege interests are exclusively served at the expense of public welfare.

Elections are farcical, exercises in theater, not democracy. Candidates for the nation’s top offices are cardboard cutouts of each other, distinguishable only by their disingenuous rhetoric - promises made, forgotten and broken once in office.

The public interest be damned. People are used, not served, deceived to believe politicians represent them.

Hillary Clinton’s Clinton Foundation mega millions not born in the USA

Hillary Clinton’s country of birth is not under the microscope of the ‘birthers’, and most tragically, nor is Canada, the country of the birth of her Clinton Foundation mega millions.

2016 Democrat hopeful Clinton was not, like the currently beleaguered Senator Ted Cruz, born in Canada, but it is documented fact that the Clinton Foundation was both born and nurtured to maturity in the Land of the Maple Leaf.

5 facts about David Bowie’s Russian life

RBTH commemorates some interesting facts that tie the British superstar to Russia... David Bowie visited Russia three times. During his first trip April-May 1973, he spent three days in Moscow visiting the May Day parade, GUM and The Kremlin Armory. His next trip was in April of 1976, when he was traveling with U.S. rock star Iggy Pop. On his final trip in 1996 he gave his first - and last - performance in Russia at the Kremlin Palace in Moscow. Gossip about Bowie’s secret trip of 1973 across the USSR from Vladivostok to Moscow seemed too fantastic to be true – as the Far East naval city was closed to foreigners until 1992. However, Vladivostok journalist Ruslan Vakulik managed to confirm the legend, finding evidence from stories published by UPI reporter Robert Musel, who accompanied Bowie on the USSR trip and Bowie’s letters to Cherry Vanilla, his press manager. These documents prove that the musician traveled by train across Russia in the spring of 1973.

Peace Prize President Obama Drops Over 23,000 Bombs on Muslims

"Let’s review U.S. counterterrorism bombing for 2015. Last year, the United States dropped an estimated total of 23,144 bombs in six countries. Of these, 22,110 were dropped in Iraq and Syria. This estimate is based on the fact that the United States has conducted 77 percent of all airstrikes in Iraq and Syria, while there were 28,714 U.S.-led coalition munitions dropped in 2015. This overall estimate is probably slightly low, because it also assumes one bomb dropped in each drone strike in Pakistan, Yemen, and Somalia, which is not always the case"

Jewish terror bomber claims influence with Ted Cruz

A campaigner for US presidential hopeful Ted Cruz has praised the Israeli accused of killing Palestinian baby Ali Dawabsha.

Cruz, now seeking the Republican nomination in the US presidential race, has declined to distance himself from Victor Vancier, a convicted bomber fond of making racist comments on the Internet.

Vancier’s praise of the man alleged to have killed Ali and his parents Riham and Saad has been published since he established a campaign called Jews For Cruz.

Vancier has also suggested his group is providing financial support to Israeli extremists accused of attacks on Palestinians.

The Ted Cruz for President campaign did not reply to multiple email and phone requests asking if Cruz would distance himself from Vancier and his organization.

FLASHBACK - Ted Cruz is not eligible to be President of the United States; The meaning of "Natural Born."

"No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty-five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States." -- Constitution, Article 2, Section 1, clause 5
Ted Cruz is ineligible to run for President of the United States. He was born in Canada, of parents who were Canadian citizens at the time of his birth. Cruz's mother claims to have been born in Delaware. The State of Delaware claims not to have any records of her. (The authenticity of the recently provided Birth Certificate provided by the Cruz campaign is now in dispute.) But even if genuine, it makes Cruz a US citizen, but not "Natural Born."

Ted Cruz's supporters try to get around "Natural Born" by claiming it simply means any US citizen, an opinion even echoed at Wikipedia!

Long-term health issues that might not be sufficiently addressed by her current treatment could pose a major problem for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and — if she were elected — could hurt her ability to serve as president, according to nationally syndicated radio and HLN host Dr. Drew Pinsky.

“Why is somebody who’s running for the president of the United States getting such shoddy care?” Drew said. “My problem is the quality of the overall care she is getting.”

Clinton could be suffering from long-term health issues that are linked to a concussion and blood clot, according to concerns expressed by security and health officials in a recent news report. The Clinton campaign denies Clinton has health issues and reports her as “healthy.”

BEX ALERT - Hamas, ISIS terrorists arrested for attempted Netanyahu slaying were backed by Iran

As the Obama administration pushes full-tilt to complete the nuclear ‘deal’ with Iran that will allow the Islamic Republic to acquire nuclear weapons a few years down the road, Israel has found out what Iran will do with the billions it stands to receive under the internationally negotiated agreement. Multiple Hamas terrorists, along with one that supported ISIS, were indicted in Israel this week for attempting to assassinate Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu by placing an explosion under a stage where he was scheduled to speak in Tel Aviv. Iran supports Hamas in the Gaza strip and analysts believe is supporting ISIS in the Sinai against the Egyptian government as well. Hamas has been sheltering ISIS leaders in Gaza from Egyptian security forces. The terrorists also had plans to use suicide bombings to kill innocent Israelis.

Interview with Sen. Richard Black about Seymour Hersh report

The report of Hersh, one of the best-known American journalists of political and military events, shows us that there has been a sort of "army rebellion" that has seen the Pentagon of General Martin Dempsey opposed to the CIA and the State Department. In fact the Pentagon opposed the fall of Syrian President Assad providing information against the attacks of the terrorist mercenaries and in various ways preventing the supply to them of weapons and supplies. This conflict between parts of the American apparatus seems unbelievable but it really happened. Virginia Senator Richard Black, who is already known to Pravda's readers, expressed his views about what written by Hersh in his report... The "rebellion of the military," Senator Black says, is understandable remembering how the American soldier, but also the public employee, swear allegiance not to a direct superior or who is in charge in the government but to the Constitution of the United States.

European Union pays USA for the possibility to exist

Putin said in a recent documentary that the European Union had no independent foreign policy. This is very true. The European Union actually pays the United States for the possibility to exist as well as for the possibility to work together... When the EU was formed, it was up to the USA to make decisions on all issues of the foreign policy of the union. One can now see with the naked eye that the position of separate EU members could have been much more independent, just like the position of the European Union in general. Italy, for example, wants to lift sanctions against Russia. Other countries may share a similar approach, but when they come to the European Union they change their point of view completely. The announcement of sanctions against Russia from Montenegro was quite a surprise. These are the rules of the game for EU members. We have not lived up to the moment when the Americans would be ready to refuse from this idea..

"We have been actively opposing everything that took place, let us say, in Iraq, Libya and some other countries," Putin said. "We used to say do not do it, do not get involved there and make mistakes." "Nobody listened to us! On the contrary, it was believed that we [Russia] assumed some sort of anti-Western stance, which is hostile toward the West," he said.

Polar Bears Survived Periods When The Arctic Had No Ice

Former Vice President Al Gore shocked Americans in “An Inconvenient Truth” when he said polar bears were drowning because global warming was melting Arctic sea ice, but now a new study shows that polar bears did just fine even when there was no ice covering the Arctic.

Scientists with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and the University of Alaska, Fairbanks released a study claiming the “stratigraphic record of the last 1.5 [million years] indicates that no marine species’ extinction events occurred despite major climate oscillations,” including periods where the Arctic was completely ice-free in summertime.

“Some species thought to be dependent on summer sea ice (e.g., polar bears) survived through these periods,” write Thomas Cronin of the USGS and Matthew Cronin of the University of Alaska in their new study.

ISIS is so central to the new world order plans that the name is now permanently etched into US mainstream media news consciousness and deeply entrenched into the psyche of brainwashed Americans who still believe mainstream media news.
