PM Abbott Backflipped When Murdoch Media Keeps Pushing “Jab”

November 2006: Federal Health Minister Tony Abbott has said that he would not be rushing to have his own daughters vaccinated against cervical cancer. “I won’t be rushing out to get my daughters vaccinated, maybe that’s because I’m a cruel, callow, callous, heartless bastard but, look, I won’t be,” Mr Abbott said on Southern Cross radio (report here).

April 2015: Prime Minister Tony ­Abbott and Social Services Minister Scott Morrison (appointed Dec 14) announce the historic “no jab, no play” reforms, which mean parents who fail to immunise their children will no longer be paid the $200-a-week childcare benefit, the $7500-a-year childcare rebate or the $726 Family Tax Benefit A annual supplement. This could risk up to $30,000 a year for a family with two young children. The changes will come into effect from January 1, 2016 (report here).

Evaluating NASA’s Futuristic EM Drive

A group at NASA’s Johnson Space Center has successfully tested an electromagnetic (EM) propulsion drive in a vacuum – a major breakthrough for a multi-year international effort comprising several competing research teams. Thrust measurements of the EM Drive defy classical physics’ expectations that such a closed (microwave) cavity should be unusable for space propulsion because of the law of conservation of momentum.

I may quiz Janner myself, says head of abuse inquiry: New experts to decide on his dementia

Suspected paedophile peer Lord Janner faces questions by the judge leading the national inquiry into historic child sex abuse.

Justice Lowell Goddard said she will take personal responsibility for examining the actions of the former Labour MP, and will bring in her own medical experts to determine whether it is possible to confront the 86-year-old over the avalanche of allegations against him.

The announcement is a shot across the bows of Director of Public Prosecutions Alison Saunders, who ruled this month that Janner should not be charged.

Some French soldiers in CAR abuse probe identified - source

French authorities have identified some of their troops accused of sexually abusing children in Central African Republic while there on peacekeeping duties, a French judicial source said on Thursday.

The matter, which risks damaging the reputation of France's military operations in Africa, came to light this week when Britain's Guardian newspaper published an internal U.N. report that raised allegations of the rape of boys by French troops.

The source said an initial reading of that report suggested 14 soldiers were involved in the alleged abuse, which took place between December 2013 and June 2014. Subsequent French inquiries had identified some of them, the source said, adding that no soldiers had been questioned yet.

Wynn share loss wipes out $2.2 billion in stock market value

The steep drop in value followed Wynn Resorts’ Tuesday earnings report. The company reported a first-quarter loss of $44.6 million, or 44 cents a share, on revenue of $1.09 billion. Sales fell 28 percent year over year, and the company missed analysts’ consensus estimates on earnings per share by nearly 50 percent.

The results were tied to a slump in Macau, where gaming activity has fallen as government officials have cracked down on corruption and curbed junkets to the market.

New restrictions on travel from mainland China to the island haven’t helped, either.

Ukrainian billionaire dies in Sharm el-Shiekh

A Ukrainian billionaire was found dead in hotel at Sharm el-Sheikh, and so far foul play has not been suggested; the victim is the brother of former Ukrainian Finance Minster Anton Klimnko, Youm 7 reported Wednesday.

The initial information gathered by security officials says that the incident started when the victim flew to Sharm el-Sheikh upon a request from his girlfriend which was spending her vacation out there. He reportedly traveled by his private jet with his body guard and arrived three days ago and stayed in a suite at an unnamed high-level hotel.

The investigations noted that the victim often witnessed drunk, and his body guards found him dead in front of the hotel swimming pool. Initial investigations have hinted that he may have fallen from his balcony while drunk.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Most hotels have very high rails on their balconies to prevent just that sort of embarrassing death of a guest. I would like to know which hotel he was staying at and find a photo of the rooms, before I accept this "drunk enough to fall over the wall" excuse.

Univ. of Illinois protected white supremacist, but not Steven Salaita, report finds

Salaita was fired last August as he was about to take up a tenured faculty position in the American Indian Studies program at the Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) campus, because of tweets criticizing Israel’s attack on Gaza that administrators deemed lacked “civility.”

By doing so, the university violated the AAUP’s long-standing and highly influential principles on academic freedom and tenure, the report concludes.

The AAUP report confirms – based on precedents dating back to 1962 as well as generally accepted practices applied to the facts of this case – that the university’s decision constituted a “dismissal” of Salaita and not a mere withdrawal of a job offer.

Salaita was therefore entitled to full protections of his academic freedom and to due process, all of which the university violated.

National park zoning used as pretext for ethnic cleansing of East Jerusalem

The Totanji family live beside a grassy valley that extends to the walls of Jerusalem’s Old City. In 2000, Israel’s Nature and Parks Authority designated much of Wadi al-Joz and the surrounding area as belonging to the expansive Tzurim Valley National Park.

The move has placed the 17,000 Palestinians living in Wadi al-Joz in a perilous situation. The Israeli authorities may decide to destroy their homes at any time.

Under the deal struck by Kawar, locals may seek to have 12 houses on Imru al-Qays Street rezoned so that they are no longer included in the national park. To do so, they would have to hire an engineer at an estimated minimum cost of $50,000, according to Kawar.

The residents have been told that an engineer’s assessment could take three months to complete. The assessment would then have to be submitted to the Israeli-controlled Jerusalem Planning Committee.

Baltimore’s Disgrace Is History of Police Violence

While much of the police’s racist violence is waged out of sight — such as when a mentally ill black female prison inmate was shocked to death with a Taser in February while shackled — the landscape is sufficiently militarized to remind us we’re living in a war zone (albeit not of the variety envisioned by Breitbart.com). All day Saturday, police helicopters and drones circled overhead, giving the impression that “protesting while black” might also be some sort of punishable offense.

And on Monday, when tensions boiled over and young Baltimoreans repeatedly threw rocks at police tanks and cruisers, the scene was eerily reminiscent of the Occupied Territories, which should surprise no one who has followed U.S. police militarization in accordance with the Israel Defense Forces model.

Cash Flowed to Clinton Foundation Amid Russian Uranium Deal

The article, in January 2013, detailed how the Russian atomic energy agency, Rosatom, had taken over a Canadian company with uranium-mining stakes stretching from Central Asia to the American West. The deal made Rosatom one of the world’s largest uranium producers and brought Mr. Putin closer to his goal of controlling much of the global uranium supply chain.

But the untold story behind that story is one that involves not just the Russian president, but also a former American president and a woman who would like to be the next one.

What Happened to $1.3 Billion of Taxpayer Money Sent Directly to U.S. Military Officers in Afghanistan? Pentagon won’t Say

A report (pdf) from Special Inspector General for Afghan Reconstruction (SIGAR) John Sopko pointed out that $2.26 billion had been put into the Commander’s Emergency Response Program (CERP). That funding is meant to be used primarily for small projects estimated to cost less than $500,000 involving such issues as transportation, electricity and education. This year, most of the money will be used for condolence payments when civilians are killed or injured or property is damaged by U.S. forces and to increase security for communities that happen to be located near active U.S. military bases.

However, according to the SIGAR report, the Defense Department is given “broad authority to spend CERP funds notwithstanding other provisions of law. As a result, projects supported by CERP funds are not bound by procurement laws or the Federal Acquisition Regulation.”

Hello, Curiosity: UA's HiRISE Camera Snaps Photo of Little Mars Robot

Here we see the rover parked over dark sand in a valley bounded by light-toned rock outcrops. These rocks make up the “Pahrump” member of the Murray Formation, a suite of sandstones, siltstones, and calcium sulfate veins that compose the lowermost exposed rocks of Mount Sharp (Aeolis Mons) in Gale Crater. This image also addresses several objectives besides keeping track of the rover location, such as the monitoring of nearby active sand dunes and the degree to which rover tracks are preserved on the underlying terrain. Unlike other regions of for which Curiosity has traversed, here the rover tracks are not apparent, likely because the disturbed, underlying, dark sand is similar in tone to that on the surface.

When Israel would give up the bomb

A 1987 Pentagon document declassified in February unequivocally declares that Israel's nuclear weapons programme was then at the stage the US had reached between 1955 and 1960. It also says Israel had the potential to develop hydrogen weapons.

The document was released just days before Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made his highly controversial speech to a joint session of Congress in which he argued why Iran had to be stopped from getting the bomb.

As the only nuclear power in the region, Israel has an unequalled strategic advantage. There doesn't appear to be any scenario in which Israel would willingly give up a nuclear arsenal that it still refuses to even confirm exists.

Flashback: Secret South African documents reveal that Israel offered to sell nuclear warheads to the apartheid regime, providing the first official documentary evidence of the state's possession of nuclear weapons.

The "top secret" minutes of meetings between senior officials from the two countries in 1975 show that South Africa's defence minister, PW Botha, asked for the warheads and Shimon Peres, then Israel's defence minister and now its president, responded by offering them "in three sizes".

The US Dollar Just Took a Massive Plunge

After the Commerce Department released their assessment of the US Economy, the markets were not pleased. The data revealed that America’s GDP has only grown at a 0.2% annual rate. Both American and European stock markets dipped, with the Dow Jones industrial average dropping 49.78 points, and Nasdaq losing 19.71 points. What was even more shocking was the sudden drop in the value of the US dollar, which fell to 9-week lows.

This marks the second biggest drop in 6 years, and the worst decline since the dollar began its meteoric rise in 2014. Despite this, recent polls show that American confidence in the economy is remaining stable. However, it’s hard to say how long the media can maintain this level of optimism if this trend continues. As Zero Hedge put it, “This poses a problem for talking-heads: if USD strength is indicative of US economic strength… what does a plunging USD imply?”

Ten months later, the company shuttered its remaining 28 campuses, instantly displacing some 16,000 students just days after it was fined $30 million by the Department of Education for a scheme involving "confirmed cases of misrepresentation of job placement rates" for as many as 947 students. The decision to close shop came after years of federal and state investigations into the company.

Although he has made similar remarks before, his decision to repeat them on a world stage in Turkey, whose relations with Israel have deteriorated sharply since it mounted a deadly assault on the Gaza flotilla, gave them much greater diplomatic significance.

Cameron's comments, in a speech to business leaders in Ankara, prompted the Turkish prime minister, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, to issue another strong condemnation of how Israel dealt with the flotilla.

Is The U.S. Food Supply Cursed?

Why are so many catastrophes hitting U.S. food production?

But what we do know is that this flu has the potential to kill an entire flock of chickens or turkeys in just 48 hours.

Gangs and 'Outside Agitators': Baltimore Authorities Pick Their Conspiracy Theories

When the protests in Baltimore first turned violent on Saturday, the local government rushed to blame "outside agitators" for the trouble. When that narrative fell apart—almost all the people arrested in connection with the unrest that night turned out to be locals—official circles shifted without pause into another story. Now the Bloods, the Crips, and the Black Guerrilla Family, three gangs that had called a truce to march against police brutality, were supposedly secretly plotting to "take out" cops. Such supergang stories usually turn out to be false, and we've seen no good reason to believe this one is an exception. (The gangs themselves insist that they've been trying to maintain order, not disrupt it. Tuesday night they were out in force, trying to keep the crowds calm.)

THE WAR ON CASH ESCALATES: CHASE CRACKS DOWN ON CASH... IS YOUR BANK NEXT?

The Federal Reserve bank and its owners, the largest banks on Wall Street, want badly to be able to charge you interest for the privilege of depositing your funds. The problem is getting you to stand for it. Depositors already complain vigorously about zero percent returns on checking and savings accounts. If they must start actually paying the bank to hold funds on deposit, many will opt to simply withdraw the cash and stuff it under their mattress or into a safe deposit box. That simply won’t do.

The Horrors of Wall Street’s ‘New Libya’

Prior to the foreign backed war and bombing of 2011, Libya had the highest life expectancy on the African continent. The government that emerged from the 1969 revolution, led by Colonel Moammar Gaddafi had resulted in the development of nationalized oil resources.

Every Libyan was guaranteed an income, based on a personal share of the country’s oil profits. Food and housing were heavily subsidized. Libyans received free education and free medical care. The Libyan government constructed the worlds most efficient irrigation system, bringing water to an extremely dry country.

The huge economic achievements of Libya’s independent economic development were marveled at by people around the world. The “Green Book” that explained Gaddafi’s “Third Universal Theory” was studied around the world by people who were inspired by Libya’s achievements.

“You are suggesting broken windows are worse than broken spines” Activist Destroys CNN’s Wolf Blitzer

McKesson pointed out that the protests had been peaceful until Monday night, but Blitzer listed the injuries and damage incurred over the past 24 hours. “There’s no excuse for that kind of violence, right?” Blitzer asked.

“There’s no excuse for the seven people that the Baltimore Police Department has killed in the last year either, right?” McKesson countered.

“We’re not making comparison, obviously,” Blitzer said. “I just want to hear you say there should be peaceful protests, not violent protests, in the tradition of Dr. Martin Luther King?”

“You are making a comparison,” McKesson said. “You are suggesting this idea that broken windows are worse than broken spines, right?…Freddie Gray will never be back. Those windows will.”

“Historically harsh” winter weather slowed U.S. economic growth substantially

As temperatures plummeted this past winter and snowstorms crippled parts of the Northeast, consumer spending nose-dived and U.S. economic growth stalled.

The Department of Commerce reported today that the gross domestic product (GDP) increased at just a 0.2 percent annual rate in the first quarter of 2015 compared 2.2 percent during the final quarter of 2014.

“The weather impact was evident in weakness in consumer spending,” Reuters reported. “Growth in consumer spending, which accounts for more than two-thirds of U.S. economic activity, slowed to a 1.9 percent rate. That was the slowest in a year and followed a brisk 4.4 percent pace in the fourth quarter.”

Jonathan Bank, a man who was reportedly removed from his position as head of the Iran operations division at CIA headquarters due to abusive leadership practices which led to a hostile working environment for his underlings has now not only been reinstated at the agency, but given a position as deputy chief for counterintelligence at the Counter Terrorism Center (CTC).

City of Chicago offers payouts for police brutality and torture

The City of Chicago recently announced two proposals to try to contain mass outrage against decades of police torture and brutality.

City officials with the backing of Mayor Rahm Emanuel recently announced that an absurdly small $5.5 million reparations fund will be set up for victims of the torture that occurred for more than two decades under former police commander Jon Burge. Burge’s actions had the full sanction of the Democratic Party establishment in control of Chicago and the Cook County area.

Additionally, a permanent memorial to the victims will be built, the city will issue a formal apology, and eighth and tenth grade students in Chicago Public Schools will be taught about the Burge case.

House Republicans Want To Block Predatory Lending Protections For American Troops

House Republicans are pushing legislation to block predatory lending protections for American soldiers, under pressure from the banking lobby.

GOP lawmakers tucked the deregulation item into the National Defense Authorization Act -- a major bill setting the military's funding, along with a number of other controversial terms on Guantanamo Bay and other issues. If the banking item is enacted, it would impose a one-year delay on new Department of Defense rules meant to shield military families from abusive terms on payday loans and other forms of high-interest credit. The bill is being considered Wednesday before the House Armed Services Committee.

Baltimore and the Human Right to Resistance: Rejecting the Framework of the Oppressor

Anti-Black racism, always just beneath the surface of polite racial discourse in the U.S., has exploded in reaction to the resistance of black youth to another brutal murder by the agents of this racist, settler-colonialist state. With the resistance, the focus shifted from the brutal murder of Freddie Gray and the systematic state violence that historically has been deployed to control and contain the black population in the colonized urban zones of North America, to the forms of resistance by African Americans to the trauma of ongoing state violence.
