Tsipras Begins Brussels Campaign to Keep Greece Inside the Euro

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras is in Brussels for what could be a last chance to secure a rescue from European leaders and keep his country in the euro.

After German Chancellor Angela Merkel said “time is running out” for Greece to come up with a plan, finance ministers gathered for talks with division remaining over what they were willing to accept. Leaders are then scheduled to convene at 6:30 p.m. Brussels time.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Reports are that both sides are maintaining a hard line, despite Tsipras implied threat to take Greece out of the EU and pivot towards Russia. Tsipras has a popular mandate from the Greek people not to accept Austerity, while the EU cannot offer Greece any debt reductions without triggering more crisis in the other members of the EU driven into similar financial hardship by the private central banks. With NATO itself at risk from a Greek departure and Putin rolling out the red carpet for Greece, this means that sooner or later the US will undertake another destabilization campaign like they did in Kiev January of last year, overthrow the elected Greek government, install a pro-banker junta, and plunge yet another nation into bloody civil war!

Foreclosure Mill Attorney J. Will Eidson Runs From Cameras During Inspection of Deutsche Bank Original Note.

8 July update from Ms. Erickson: The blank unendorsed note is what Valerie states proves is now a securities fraud instrument good or fake. The prospectus of the trust states it has to be endorsed into the trust. It says to send it in blank and then deposit it into the trust along with the assignment, that never happened and stayed on county records in Long Beach name until Rebecca Dietrich, a Chase employee signed by power of attorney for DBNTC seven years after the trust closed.

I have long wondered about this because a Note can't be in two places at once, think about it. I know there is some Decisional law on this so I'll start looking into it. I think Erbobo v. Wells Fargo touches on this:

No, sweet no

The astounding NO vote that swept every part of Greece will take time to digest and understand and its meaning also depends on how the Europeans respond. But here are some immediate reactions.

The scale of the majority surprised everyone I have spoken to here in Athens as it bust the polls. Its definite, unarguable nature is a relief. This was no close-run majority that the other side could claim is illegitimate. Nor was it a mere party vote as many more supported NO than have backed Syriza.

From 'No' to 'Yes': Rejection of Austerity Just Beginning of European Battle

Even with a historic political victory in his pocket after seeing his nation vote overwhelmingly against the imposition of further austerity in exchange for a new loan package from foreign creditors on Sunday, Yanis Varoufakis, the outspoken finance minister of Greece's Syriza-led government, announced his resignation on Monday morning.

In a statement posted to his personal blog, Varoufakis said he "shall wear the creditors' loathing with pride" after it was made clear to him that his "absence" from future talks was urged by negotiating members of the so-called Troika—the European Commission, European Central Bank, and International Monetary Fund.

Hillary Clinton Needs to Answer for Confederate Flag in Arkansas

CNN political commentator Paul Begala, the co-chair of a pro-Hillary Clinton Super PAC, said Tuesday she would “absolutely” have to answer for her time as Arkansas First Lady when her husband stood by a flag with a blue star inspired by the state’s former membership in the Confederacy.

“Sure, absolutely,” he said, when asked about the subject by New Day‘s Chris Cuomo. “Times change and circumstances change.”

Hillary spokesman: We roped off the media like animals to keep her parade appearance from becoming “chaotic”

It was a truly embarrassing spectacle, but not for Hillary Clinton. It was embarrassing for the press, because they willingly allow this nonsense to keep happening. It almost appears as though America’s political media are suffering from something approaching Battered Reporter Syndrome: yeah, she tied us up, but only once; she still respects us.

Hillary’s strategy in the face of an all-too-compliant media makes perfect sense. Why wouldn’t she abuse and disrespect them if they’re just going to stand there and take it? She has every reason in the world to keep doing this to them. Thus far, the Clinton campaign’s strategy of either ignoring reporters entirely or using them to broadcast blatantly manipulated nonsense is working pretty well. If campaign reporters are going to allow themselves to be led around like leashed preschoolers on a field trip to the museum, Hillary would be crazy to not treat them like leashed preschoolers on a field trip to the museum.

San Francisco City Attorney Bans P2P Parking Apps, Threatens Users with Fines, Asks Apple to Remove from Global App Store

By Activist Post

The MonkeyParking app will have to delay their hopes of solving the parking problem in the greater San Francisco area because of a cease-and-desist order issued by the city.

MonkeyParking is one of several apps banned by the city that help drivers locate and reserve parking spots faster. The apps allow current occupants of a parking space to get paid to notify nearby drivers of their soon-to-be vacancy.

The city, clearly envious that they couldn't figure out a way to profit from solving a problem on their own, declared the apps illegal...

Technip to lay off 6,000 workers

Oil equipment builder Technip says it plans to cut about 6,000 jobs, roughly 16 percent of its workforce, as it restructures its business to cope with the oil industry downturn.

The Paris-based firm, which has its main U.S. offices in Houston, said Monday the move will save it $919 million over the next two and a half years, with the bulk of those savings coming in 2016. It said it will make the cuts “in anticipation of an even more challenging environment in oil and gas.”

Brent, the international crude benchmark, fell $4.55 to $57.52 a barrel on Monday on the ICE Futures Europe. U.S. crude sank $3.51 to $53.45 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange.

The 13-month oil slump has prompted international oil producers to delay or cancel drilling projects and hit companies like Technip directly as orders for equipment fell earlier in the year.

Investigative journalists uncover disturbing facts about the Falcone and Borsellino murders

In 1992 the famous Italian magistrates Giovanni Falcone and Paolo Borsellino were killed by two Mafia attacks. At the time, the tragedy was also widely covered by foreign newspapers and television stations. Many years later, there are still many mysteries about the real culprits of the massacres. Officially the mandator of the murders was Salvatore Riina, a Mafia boss from Corleone, who organized the killings through his web of goodfellas. There are many controversial aspects which suggest the existence of another version of the real facts. Many average Italian citizens suppose that some politicians and other influential people had a certain role in these killings. Today in 2015 many shocking facts are going to be revealed by independent researchers and journalists.

Earlier today, this was confirmed when Reuters reported that, as expected, the US will announce on Wednesday plans for a new military base in Iraq's Anbar province and the deployment of around 400 additional U.S. trainers to help Iraqi forces in the fight against Islamic State, citing an unnamed U.S. official.

Obama Admin Changes Federal Aviation Administration Because Too Many White Males Were Passing Their Air Traffic Controller Classes

The Obama administration has abandoned the old system for getting qualified air-traffic controller applicants because too many of them were white males, and replaced it with a new system that asks applicants how many different sports they played when they were in high school.

The Federal Aviation Administration has stopped giving preferential treatment to air-traffic controller applicants who had passed classes from the 36 FAA-approved college aviation programs across the U.S., because too many of the people who passed these classes were white males.

At the same time, the FAA also stopped giving preference to applicants who were military veterans with aviation experience.

Under the new system, applicants were asked how many different high school sports they had participated in.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Call me silly, but when I am in a metal tube hurtling along at 35,000 MSL, I want the person telling the pilot what to do to be the very best qualified for that job, regardless of race, creed, color, gender, or orientation. This exercise in PC will get people killed!

President Barack Obama’s threat on Tuesday to walk out of the nuclear talks if Iranian negotiators didn’t return to the Lausanne framework – especially on the issue of IAEA access to Iranian sites — was the climax of that campaign.

Why Oncologists Don’t Like Baking Soda Cancer Treatment

Even the most aggressive cancers which have metastasized have been reversed with baking soda cancer treatments. Although chemotherapy is toxic to all cells, it represents the only measure that oncologists employ in their practice to almost all cancer patients. In fact, 9 out of 10 cancer patients agree to chemotherapy first without investigating other less invasive options.

Doctors and pharmaceutical companies make money from it. That’s the only reason chemotherapy is still used. Not because it’s effective, decreases morbidity, mortality or diminishes any specific cancer rates. In fact, it does the opposite. Chemotherapy boosts cancer growth and long-term mortality rates and oncologists know it.

Kim Kardashian: ‘We Need More Gun Control (Just Not for My Armed Guards)’

The media loves to promote anything the Kardashians do, especially when it backs the establishment agenda.

Via The Mirror:

She said: “If there was gun control. They scare me so much. I’m not the type to have them in my house – the security at the front of my house might but not in my house. I truly honestly believe we don’t have strict enough gun control laws and it would change a lot.”

Yeah, not in her house. Just in front of her house. Protecting her house. With guns.

If gun control laws were strict enough to take said guns out of the hands of those guards, she might reconsider her position.

As you can see from this Google search page this has become a major productivity-killer, and like the ignition switches or cancer-linked Glyphosate, the response seems to be ignore the problem and imply it is politically incorrect to call attention to the faults.

US-Saudi Man-Made Famine Threatens 20 Million Yemenis

In 2011, a nationwide uprising akin to those in Tunisia and Egypt deposed the country’s autocratic leader, Ali Abdullah Saleh. There was no democratic election before his successor, the Saudi- and U.S.-backed Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, took over — he ran unopposed. And there was no relief from the terrible poverty, unemployment, and government corruption that brought about the popular revolt.

So a few months ago, a reformist movement and militia called the Houthis — which had launched a handful of rebellions against Saleh in the past — took advantage of widespread discontent to conquer the capital, Sanaa. Hadi fled into exile, and the Saudis started bombing shortly thereafter.

Since then, local militias in central and southern Yemen have fiercely resisted the Houthis and army units still loyal to Saleh, who is now allied with his former foes. Meanwhile, a local franchise of al-Qaeda is fighting everybody.

In short, it’s terribly complicated, and the bombs aren’t helping.

The Yemenis caught in this crossfire were already thirsty and hungry before the war — unlike their Saudi neighbors, they don’t have a lucrative oil supply. Now, with Yemen’s borders closed, its airports shut down, and Arab navies enforcing an embargo at sea, the situation is breathtaking in its desperation.

US Policy Risks Turning Europe Into Nuclear Cannon Fodder – Mexican Analyst

Mexican journalist Alfredo Jalife-Rahme argues that NATO moves and Eastern European governments' irresponsible declarations about the growing "Russian threat" risk turning Europeans into nuclear cannon fodder.

US Set to Usher in Era of New Nuclear Arms Race?

In a recent article for leading Mexican daily newspaper La Jornada, Jalife-Rahme, a senior Mexican analyst specializing in geopolitics and international relations, stated that the countries of the former Soviet Union and the Eastern Bloc are now playing the dangerous game of "inflating the non-existent Russian threat." The journalist noted that there are numerous reasons behind these governments' actions, from "carrying out the plans of the US, to trying to score points before elections, to the hope of receiving dividends from the arms trade."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, this writer's opinion is very accurate.

The US government is slouching toward a war against Russia, and wants to get that war started very soon, because the US is heading toward a financial precipice from which it may not recover any time soon.

The government wants to be able to blame the privations many more Americans will experience as a result of the war, rather than a result of lousy fiscal policy, so wants that war to happen before the nightmarish plunge in the US economy causes a massive contraction.

Russia has done absolutely nothing here. After the Putsch in Ukraine last year, orchestrated by the American government and the IMF, Crimea asked to again become part of the Russian Federation.

In a transparent, clean election, with international observers, Crimea voted to become part of the Russian Federation, and the Russian government agreed.

Crimea only became a part of the Ukraine when it was annexed by Kuschiev, himself a Ukrainian, in the 50s. Crimeans had always been a part of Russia historically, before that happened.

Putin is a master chessplayer, when it comes to geopolitics, and has, so far, very much kept his cool.

But these agressive US/NATO and Eastern European statements, about Russia being the "aggressor" here have utterly no basis in fact. The exercises the US and NATO are doing are the real acts of aggression here.

How Greece was robbed by the bankers

Every single mainstream media has the following narrative for the economic crisis in Greece: the government spent too much money and went broke; the generous banks gave them money, but Greece still can’t pay the bills because it mismanaged the money that was given. It sounds quite reasonable, right?

Except that it is a big fat lie … not only about Greece, but about other European countries such as Spain, Portugal, Italy and Ireland who are all experiencing various degrees of austerity.

It was also the same big, fat lie that was used by banks and corporations to exploit many Latin American, Asian and African countries for many decades.

Greece did not fail on its own. It was made to fail.

Rocks and boulders sloughed off the crater walls, kicking up plumes of dust as they clattered down the near-vertical slopes. Steam rose from the twin magma domes formed after Mount St. Helens’ cataclysmic eruption in 1980 and the quieter outburst that started in 2004.

But Yurkewycz, operations director for the nonprofit Mount St. Helens Institute, was focused less on the volcano’s fiery past than its icy present. Few people realize, he said, that the hollowed-out crater where lava was flowing just a few years ago now holds the world’s youngest glacier.

Saudi Airstrikes Kill 45 Civilians in Northern Yemen

Yemeni state media reported a flurry of Saudi airstrikes today in the Hajjah Province, slamming the Aahem marketplace and killing at least 45 civilians and wounding an unspecified number of others.

Neither Saudi officials nor their allies in the former Hadi government addressed the attacks in Hajjah, though strikes killing massive numbers of civilians have been common throughout the Saudi war against Yemen.

Newsweek (Controlled Media) Finally Admits Water Fluoridation Does Not Prevent Cavities, But Does Retard Children

A new and highly-needed scientific review has found that there’s no real evidence linking water fluoridation with cavity prevention, further proving that the IQ-damaging substance known as sodium fluoride truly does not have a place in our water supply. BY ANTHONY GUCCIARDI It was back in 2012 that I shared with you the results from a major Harvard study that revealed the dark relationship between IQ levels and sodium fluoride consumption. Specifically, the Harvard researchers detailed the fact that children who lived in areas with high sodium fluoride content had ‘significantly lower’ IQ than those in areas with less added fluoride content. What’s more, this research was published in a federal government medical journal known as Environmental Health Perspectives.

In New York City, on the walls of the sprawling subway station beneath Times Square, small mosaics bearing an uncanny resemblance to the Confederate battle flag form part of a decorative border.

US-led air strikes hit Isis stronghold of Raqqa

US-led coalition aircraft have conducted a series of air strikes targeting the Islamic State stronghold of Raqqa in eastern Syria, killing at least 10 militants and wounding many others, in one of the largest such operations in the country to date.

At least 16 air strikes were reported late on Saturday and early on Sunday. The US-led coalition often targets Isis-held towns and cities in Syria, but the overnight strikes on Raqqa were unusual in their intensity.

A US military spokesman said the air strikes had destroyed Isis-controlled structures and transit routes. “The significant air strikes tonight were executed to deny Daesh the ability to move military capabilities throughout Syria and into Iraq,” said Lt Col Thomas Gilleran, using the Arabic acronym for Isis.

“This was one of the largest deliberate engagements we have conducted to date in Syria, and it will have debilitating effects on Daesh’s ability to move” from Raqqa, he said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Has the American Government and military leadership had a communal occurrence of SMD (Selective Memory Disorder) which has caused them to forget that the indiscriminate killing of civilians is a war crime?!?

Unfortunately, it appears to be so.

Hillary Clinton slams China while Chinese bash U.S. allegations of hacking

During an Independence Day campaign rally in New Hampshire, Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton accused the Chinese of stealing corporate secrets and pilfering U.S. government information. She received a chuckle from the assembled crowd on Saturday when she said that the Chinese were trying to "hack into everything that doesn't move in America."

But Chinese government officials on Sunday, through their state-run newspaper Xinhua, claim that there is a new wave of "China-bashing" in the U.S. by political leaders, the latest accusation being that China is responsible for the recent hacking into U.S. federal computer networks. The news service's editorial board claims these unfounded accusations are may have harmful effects on future Sino-U.S. relations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I'll wager a Euro that Hillary will next claim that the Chinese planted all that incriminating information on her private server!

Breakthrough Reported in Iran Talks, But Differences Remain

The P5+1 nuclear negotiations with Iran continue apace this weekend, with officials describing Saturday’s talks in Vienna as a “breakthrough,” and one which now has the two sides sitting on an unofficial draft agreement which could end up serving as the basis for a final pact.

Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif conceding that despite the progress, the final deal still isn’t necessarily clear, and that some difference remain and will require significant effort to move past. Exactly what remains to resolve is unclear.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF these reports are true, fingers crossed that an agreement can be reached.

Not reaching an agreement may well mean war with Russia, something for which the US military is woefully unprepared.

And I say this NOT to fault the US military per se, but right now, it does not have the troop strength, the manufacturing, or the money to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war with Russia.

Secondly, the weapons which have been bought for the US military are enormously expensive, don't work as advertised, and sometimes do not work at all.

Russia spends less on weapons that does the US government, but the weapons they buy are fully vetted and when they have to be counted on by Russian military in the field, they work.

Obama Says Freedom Paid for by Members of Military

President Barack Obama thanked members of the military at home and abroad, saying the nation couldn't enjoy the "incredible blessings" in the "greatest country on earth" without their sacrifices and the sacrifices of their families.

"Freedom is not free. It's paid by all the folks who are here today and all the folks who are around the world," Obama told members of the military and military families at an Independence Day celebration on the South Lawn of the White House, after a performance by Bruno Mars.

Obama especially thanked service members who couldn't be with their families because they are stationed overseas. "We want to especially remember them," Obama said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This statement is disingenuous in the extreme.

What true "freedoms" is this President talking about, after the passage of the Homeland Security Act, the Patriot Act, and the NDAA, under which the President, at his command, can have any American arrested and held indefinitely without due process?!?

What "freedoms" can we be certain we have, with 24/7 physical, computer and phone surveillance?!?

What "freedoms" do we have with only two parties to chose from, come Presidential election day, and both presidential candidates have been vetted by the corporations which own them, and those corporations know the candidates THEY have chosen for us to vote on, will deliver?

This a government of the corporations, by the corporations, and for the corporations, not of the people, by the people, and for the people.

And let me make one thing clear: I have the utmost respect for our American military; it is the civilian leadership which puts them into harm's way where there are other ways to resolve a geopolitical issue, that makes me crazy.

And these endless wars and occupations of foreign countries?!? this is not about "protecting the American people", but adding value to the bottom line of numerous American corporations (which own the Presidency and Congress), and protecting what is left of the value of US dollar as the world's reserve currency.

The defense industrial companies and banks make a financial killing during wartime, which is why they love war so much.

And if it is your kid who gets killed or maimed for life...in the eyes of corporate and banking executives, they were just collateral damage and expendable anyway.

Greece Contemplates Nuclear Options: May Print Euros, Launch Parallel Currency, Nationalize Banks

As we said earlier today, following today's dramatic referendum result the Greeks may have burned all symbolic bridges with the Eurozone. However, there still is one key link: the insolvent Greek banks' reliance on the ECB's goodwill via the ELA.

US Senate trying to sabotage Iran nuclear talks: Analyst

“I just don’t see it likely that the US Senate is going to allow any kind of a nuclear deal to go through, and all they would have to do is… invoke another round of sanctions on Iran and the deal is off,” said James Morris, editor of America-hijacked.com

In a phone interview with Press TV on Monday, he said, “The demands that have been put on Iran are unreasonable.”

Morris made the remarks when asked to comment on a message tweeted by US foreign policy scholar Zbigniew Brzezinski, encouraging Washington to broker a deal with Iran.

“As the Mideast grows increasingly chaotic, it’s smarter to increase stability, not reduce it. A deal with Iran is better than no deal,” Brzezinski wrote.

CHICAGO TO TAX NETFLIX AND OTHER ONLINE MOVIES AND MUSIC TO HELP COVER GROWING DEFICIT CREATED BY FAILED POLICIES

Politicians get elected by making expensive, grandiose promises that are virtually impossible to fund. The voters, excited by the politicians promises, elect said politician, who proceeds to gleefully waste the money of the taxpayers on frivolous things. Then, when the inevitable budget shortfall rears its ugly head, they strong-arm the public into supporting tax increases by blaming the deficit on those who are principally opposed to tax increases and by threatening to cut funding for more popular public programs like education and the fire department. You can watch this cycle play out again and again. Maybe one day we’ll break it, but that day isn’t today.

A racist country with too much influence over US — Israel’s new image among Democrats

Rightwing pro-Israel pollster Frank Luntz sounds the alarm with a survey of elite US opinion saying that 3/4 of American Democratic elites regard Israel as having too much influence, and half of them say Israel is racist. Just what we’ve been saying: criticism of Israel is gaining traction in the Democratic base and is sure to play a role in next year’s election campaigns. Hillary Clinton is surely freaking over these numbers; what’s a presidential candidate to do, will this become a tsunami.

NEW EVIDENCE LINKS FLUORIDE TO INCREASING CASES OF ADHD MORE WATER FLUORIDATION = MORE ADHD

The evidence from a new scientific research study shows that children who live in water districts where the water supply is systematically fluoridated suffer with ADHD at a significantly higher rate.

“A multivariate regression analysis showed that after socioeconomic status was controlled each 1 percent increase in artificial fluoridation prevalence in 1992 was associated with approximately 67,000 to 131,000 additional ADHD diagnoses from 2003 to 2011.” [1]

For those who are not initiated in the realm of medical statistics, the number of additional diagnoses cited above is extraordinary by any standard of measurement. This study conclusively demonstrates that fluoride exposure among children and adolescents has significant consequences, primarily because of their formative stage of growth and development.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As reported at consumerhealth.org:

THE ADDITION OF FLUORIDE, A POTENTIALLY TOXIC SUBSTANCE, TO THE PUBLIC WATER SUPPLY IS COMPULSORY MASS MEDICATION. IT VIOLATES ALL ETHICAL PRINCIPLES. Many of the speakers at the Total Health 81 conference referred to the problem we have with our fluoridated drinking water: DR. JAN DE VRIES, Dr. H.Med., Ph.D., D.Ac., D.O., N.D. "I was very shocked that you poor people in Toronto have to drink this water. We have had a tremendous fight in Holland, which we won. This fluoride water is a chemical soft-working tranquilizer. Hitler put fluoride in the water to keep his prisoners quiet, and the same thing happens in other parts of the world. If I put a homeopathic remedy in this water, the remedy is destroyed. If you can work at getting this out of your water in any way at all, I would be very happy." DR. WILLIAM ELLIS, D.O. "The environmental protective agency in the United States has shown that the water in the 90 largest cities in the United States' all cause cancer. It's been proven in U.S. federal court that fluoridation of the inorganic form, which is the end product of aluminum manufacturing, is a cancer causative agent." DR. WILLIAM MORRIS, D.C., N.D. "Fluoride hardens the arteries and it does a lot more damage. It's toxic, but it happens to be a waste product of a very influential type of industry. We don't need the fluoride in our water. It's an infringement on our freedom. That's what Consumer Health is all about. We must make our rights known, and we must fight for it. Air and water are our first two needs, and they are being politically polluted. I think you should get behind Consumer Health and let's put some pressure and lobby to get better air and water." DISEASES CONNECTED WITH FLUORIDE Diseases connected with fluoride ingestion are cancer (of the mouth, esophagus, stomach, large intestine, rectum, kidney, bladder, urinary organs, breast, ovary), goiter, mongolism, kidney disease & osteoporosis. Additional problems are caused by fluoride in anaesthetics, gases and aerosol propellants. Symptoms can appear as long as 20 to 30 years later, as fluoride is so very prone to accumulate, not only in the bones and teeth, but also in the soft tissues of the body. Physiologically, the fluoride ion is an avid bone seeker and a potent enzyme inhibitor according to Dr. Albert Burgstahler, University of Kansas. He states that fluoride depresses growth rate of human cells, causes dermatitis, affects thyroid and heart function, circulation and reproduction, is more potent than cyanide as an inhibitor of respiration, disturbs hormonal balance, and increases the incidence of mongolism by 15%. Upon its accumulation in tissues, fluoride may incorporate itself into naturally occurring compounds to form, for example, fluorouracil, capable of producing cancer or giving rise to deformed babies. Symptoms associated with low-grade fluoride poisoning include excessive thirst, headaches, blurred vision, arthritis, gastrointestinal disturbances and excess urination. These will usually disappear if fluoridated water is replaced by distilled or spring water with a low fluoride level. CANCER AND FLUORIDATION In 1971, Dr. Dean Burke, Ph.D., began a study of the effects of fluoridation in drinking water in the United States. Dr. Burke was for 35 years, head of the cytochemistry section, and was co-founder of the National Cancer Institute, U.S.A. He has received many awards for cancer research and biochemistry, including the Domagh Prize, 1965, for cancer research. He has been involved in cancer research for 50 years. Results of his studies show that a large increase in human cancer mortality in the U.S. is associated with public water fluoridation. "One-tenth of the 350,000 cancer deaths per year in the U.S. are linked with artificial public water fluoridation." (See graph on last page) "We took the ten largest cities that had been fluoridated and compared them with the ten largest cities that had not been fluoridated. The fluoridation didn't start until 1952 to 1956, and has been continued ever since in the fluoridated group. Between 1940 and 1952 these two groups were identical, could not be distinguished on this curve. But from 1952 on, the curves have been continually widening to the point that there's now a difference of approximately 35,000 a year. There's no question about the data or our particular arrangement of it. The data is from government sources, which any high school student can look up and confirm. Nearly all of the fluoridation-linked cancer deaths are found to begin at the age of about 45 and then steadily increase with age. This situation is sharply different from the increased cancer deaths resulting from cigarette smoking, asbestos or hormones given to expectant mothers. Here a lag of 15 to 30 years is common. Increased death rates due to fluoridated water commence within a few years after initiation of fluoridation with marked continued increase thereafter."

A Study of Julian

This week, 500,000 documents from Saudi intelligence were released by WikiLeaks, or were they? Now we find that teams, including Israeli intelligence, are “sifting through” the release, coordinating them into groups and removing what they tell us we don’t need to see. Thus far nothing involving the coordinated aggression of Israel and Saudi Arabia against Syria, Iraq, Lebanon and Yemen has reached print. None of it will.

Similarly, in earlier WikiLeaks dumps, the New York Times asked the Israeli consulate in New York to send over teams to review and edit what was released. Thus far nothing on Israel or any nation that discusses Israel has ever been leaked. In millions of documents, no mention of Gaza, or Israeli nuclear weapons or even the existence of Israel is mentioned.

Moreover, no press agency, media group or newspaper has every noted this bizarre occurrence, particularly when Israel is the “ground zero” of so many conflicts.

Greece Didn’t Refuse Austerity: They Refused Further Debt Slavery to the EU

Did you hear the news? “Greece Says No to Further Austerity Measures!” Did you shake your head and say, “Wow, the nerve of those people refusing to cut their expenses in the face of all that debt”?

I’m no financial expert, but I don’t think that tightening up the budget was really what they were turning down.

I think that they were turning down the opportunity to continue under the tyrannical rule of the EU. They were breaking free.

What they were actually turning down was another series of huge loans that would put them further in debt and further under the oppression of the European Union loan sharks. They said no to another entity controlling their finances and destiny. Collapse or survive, the voters loudly stated that the Greek people want their country back.

NULAND’S NEMESIS: WILL GREECE BE DESTROYED TO SAVE HER FROM RUSSIA, LIKE UKRAINE?

A putsch in Athens to save allied Greece from enemy Russia is in preparation by the US and Germany, with backing from the non-taxpayers of Greece – the Greek oligarchs, Anglo-Greek shipowners, and the Greek Church. At the highest and lowest level of Greek government, and from Thessaloniki to Milvorni, all Greeks understand what is happening. Yesterday they voted overwhelmingly to resist. According to a high political figure in Athens, a 40-year veteran, “what is actually happening is a slow process of regime change.”

“It was neck to neck until 3 pm,” reports the political veteran in Athens, “then the young started voting. “

Can the outcome — the 61% to 39% referendum vote, with a 22% margin for ??? (No) which the New York Times calls “shocking” and a “victory [that] settled little” – defeat Operation Nemesis? Will the new Axis – the Americans and the Germans – attack again, as the Germans did after the first Greek ??? of October 28, 1940, defeated the Italian invasion?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Putin is a master statesman. He may offer a credit line to Greece, under far less usurious terms than those of the IMF, to help them get out of their current financial predicament.

But I sincerely hope that Greek leaders will look at Iceland as a model.

Crooked politicians and bankers got the country into an horrific debt spiral. What the government did was declare the debt "odious", refused to pay it, and threw the crooked bankers and politicians in jail - and NOT into Iceland's version of a "Club Fed".

Iceland's economy is doing quite well right now, thank you very much.

London is now the global money-laundering centre for the drug trade, says crime expert

The City of London is the money-laundering centre of the world’s drug trade, according to an internationally acclaimed crime expert.

UK banks and financial services have ignored so-called “know your customer” rules designed to curb criminals’ abilities to launder the proceeds of crime, Roberto Saviano warned. Mr Saviano, author of the international bestseller Gomorrah, which exposed the workings of the Neapolitan crime organisation Camorra, said: “The British treat it as not their problem because there aren’t corpses on the street.”

His warning follows a National Crime Agency (NCA) threat assessment which stated: “We assess that hundreds of billions of US dollars of criminal money almost certainly continue to be laundered through UK banks, including their subsidiaries, each year.”

Citigroup Just Cornered The "Precious Metals" Derivatives Market

Some, without even bothering to read the article, did what they always do when reacting to Zero Hedge articles: accused it of writing a "wrong" post first and asking questions later and coming up with some utterly incorrect response to show just how wrong Zero Hedge was because, guess what, the Office of the US Currency Comptroller had clearly "fat fingered" trillions in critical data which is far more logical.

As usually happens in these situations, Zero Hedge was right (there was some tongue in cheek apology but hey, at least someone got to boost their traffic briefly by namedropping this web site; incidentally apology accepted), which could have been checked simply just by looking at bank call reports, in this case the quarterly Regulatory Capital report, schedule RC-R, which made it very clear that indeed JPM's OTC commodity derivatives had exploded to $4 trillion.

Greece’s fight is for democracy in Europe. That’s why we must support it

Martin Schulz, the European parliament’s president and a so-called social democrat, whose attitude towards democracy can be generously described as ambiguous, called for the removal of Greece’s elected government in favour of a technocratic government.

It wasn’t bluster. That’s what the EU and the markets previously pulled off in Greece and, yes, in Italy: however much justifiable distaste exists for Silvio Berlusconi, it should have been his own people who removed him. In Greece itself, the oligarch-owned “free media” acted as a political machine (sound familiar?), pumping out relentless propaganda in favour of capitulating to the creditors’ demands. An alliance between Greece’s economic elite and the EU great powers told the Greek people: however tough your lives have been in the last few years, your world will cave in unless you acquiesce. And still the Greek people voted no – not narrowly, but overwhelmingly.

“Our policy of supporting Syria, its leadership and its people remains unchanged,” said Putin. “Syrian people will win in the final run.”

Lavrov stressed Russia will continue “all possible assistance to increase (Syria’s) ability to resist the evil” of terrorist forces battling to overthrow its government.
