“Massive leak” at nuclear plant after reactors contract “small pox” — Stunning Discovery: Contagion has spread all over critical structures — Multiple large cracks found — Experts befuddled… Literally a plot similar to a movie thriller

A year after heavy water leaked from the coolant channel in unit I of the [India's] Gujarat-based Kakrapar Atomic Power Station (KAPS-1), preliminary investigations have found corrosion spots on the channel’s outer surface, and through-wall cracks in it… On March 12, KAPS-1… underwent an automatic shut down at 9 am after a leak from its coolant system. Following this, a ‘plant emergency’ was declared.

U.S. CRIES FOUL AS RUSSIA TESTS 9M729 CRUISE MISSILE, BUT WHO VIOLATED THE INF TREATY FIRST?

Should the reports of a land-based cruise missile system be confirmed, there are several possible explanations which are not necessarily mutually exclusive. The first explanation is that the missile is INF-compatible, because its range is in excess of 5,500km. The INF Treaty was, after all, negotiated in the 1980s, and at that time a cruise missile capable of such performance would have had the size of at least a fighter aircraft. Thirty years later, however, considering the advances in jet propulsion technology, such performance can be built into a small weapon. If that is the case, it is equally likely that the other contemporary Russian cruise missile systems, namely the Kalibr and the Kh-101, are capable of a similar range.

Kurds Say Pentagon Plans to 'Send 1,000 Troops to Syria in the Coming Weeks'

A representative of the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), an alliance largely made up Kurdish and Arab militias, has confirmed that the Pentagon is planning to deploy an additional 1,000 US ground troops to Syria to assist the SDF in the upcoming operation aimed at liberating Raqqa, the de facto capital of Daesh's caliphate.

"Every two days the US deploys a large amount of weapons, primarily heavy armaments, to the region. They have sent tanks, armored vehicles, missiles, sniper rifles, mortar launchers and other types of weaponry," the source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told Sputnik Turkey. "In addition, the United States has told us that a decision was made to send an additional 1,000 US troops to take part in the Raqqa operation."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF, in fact, these reports are true, the US government is ramping up a huge military escalation of their invasion of Syria.

Please remember: Russian military were invited by the sitting President of Syria, Bashar Al-Assad; the US military has not been invited to help clean out the jihadists who are trying to destabilise the country.

IF, in fact, there are any Russian casualties from this escalation, it could well put the US on a path of war against Russia over the future of Syria.

I think the words "absoflippinglutely insane", come to mind right now.

Will Russiagate Backfire On The Left?

The big losers of the Russian hacking scandal may yet be those who invested all their capital in a script that turned out to based on a fairy tale.

In Monday’s Intelligence Committee hearings, James Comey did confirm that his FBI has found nothing to support President Trump’s tweet that President Obama ordered him wiretapped. Not unexpected, but undeniably an embarrassment for the tweeter-in-chief.

Yet longer-term damage may have been done to the left. For Monday’s hearing showed that its rendering of the campaign of 2016 may be a product of fiction and a fevered imagination.

After eight months investigating the hacking and leaking of the emails of Clinton campaign chief John Podesta and the DNC, there is apparently no evidence yet of Trump collusion with Russia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As that title question asks, "Tis a consummation devoutly to be wished!!"

The Pentagon: Americans Support Increasing Budget of Most Wasteful Federal Department

A Politico and Morning Consult poll, a scientific sampling of 1,992 registered American voters, which was first published on March 8th, asked «Here is a list of federal departments and agencies. For each of the following, please indicate if you think the department or agency should have its annual budget increased, decreased, or kept about the same». Here is what it found:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I do not believe in giving the DOD more money, when they cannot account for the money they have already been given, and they should have to process their spending through a strict audit structure which would make them accountable.

And secondly, the culture of our weapons manufacturers has to change.

That the CEOS of such companies believe it is perfectly acceptable to deliver products that are obsolete, compared to what Russian and Chinese weapons manufacturers are delivering to their countries; and that it is acceptable to deliver products with huge failure rates, which may never work as advertised (like the F-35); and that huge cost over-runs, coupled with horrifically late deliveries are standard operating procedures, can no longer be tolerated.

And instead of fines, when the above-mentioned happens, there needs to be hard jail time for those executives who signed off on those practices; this is the only way this corporate culture will be "inspired" to change, because everything else the US government has tried here, to accomplish this, has been an epic failure.

US Commander Announces New Deployment to Poland Starting in April

US Army Lt. Col Steven Gventer, today announced that the United States will be leading a battalion of NATO troops on a deployment into northeastern Poland, beginning in early April, as the latest in a string of NATO deployments “in response” to Russia’s 2014 annexation of Crimea.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Jason Ditz, a word, please: I guess you did not get the memo that an attempt to promulgate "the big lie" to support a US governmental agenda, went out with the whoopie cushion and the dribble glass.

By making this claim, you are presenting a very strong case of SMD (selective memory disorder), so let us get to the facts of the situation with Crimea.

In 2014, the duly elected President of Ukraine, Yanukovych, got thrown under the proverbial bus in a US/IMF/Soros-orchestrated coup.

Former Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych 'kicked out' of party

And in an election more crooked than a dog's hind leg,the western-centric Petro Poroshenko was "elected" as president of Ukraine.

Poroshenko elected as Ukraine's President

Mr. Ditz, do you NOT remember that President Obama admitted that the US played a part in the destabilization of Ukraine?!?

Washington Was Behind Ukraine Coup: Obama admits that US “Brokered a Deal” in Support of “Regime Change”

And do you NOT remember how much Victoria Nuland, Undersecretary of State, admitting how much money the US had spent to destabilize Ukraine?!?

Victoria Nuland's Admits Washington Has Spent $5 Billion to "Subvert Ukraine"

And do you, sir, NOT remember, post-putsch, that the Crimean people, understanding that there was no legitimate government in Kiev, held a referendum to determine whether to stay with Ukraine, or petition the Russian Federation to become a member state?

Tense Crimea votes over 90 percent to leave Ukraine for Russia

Do you NOT remember that Crimea petitioned Russia to become a part of the Russian Federation, after this referendum?!?

Crimea applies to be part of Russian Federation after vote to leave Ukraine

There is a principal enshrined in the UN Charter, Mr. Ditz, and that is the principal of peaceful self-determination, which is precisely what the Crimean people did, post-putsch; but because that self-determination angered the now western-centric Ukraine, and the US, Russia got accused, and summarily punished by sanctions, for something it absolutely did not do.

And it almost makes me laugh at the blatantly hypocritical attitude of the US government that, just like in George Orwell's "Animal Farm", "some acts of peaceful self-determination are more equal than others."

And in the US government's view, punishing a country, in this case, Russia, for something it absolutely did NOT do, is perfectly acceptable, if it suits the US government's geopolitical agenda.

But this placement of US and European troops on Russia's borders is very worrying indeed, and may well be a prelude to war against it.

Unfortunately, because something is the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid thing for the American government could do, is utterly no guarantee that they will not do it.

A war between the US/NATO/Europe and Russia, over a lie (anyone out there remember "Saddam's weapons of mass destruction", which never existed, but served as the excuse to start a war against Iraq?!?)may well be a thorough military catastrophe for the US government, as our military is without cost-effective and militarily effective weaponry; without the necessary troop strength; without the money; and without the manufacturing (it's been offshored) to insure a positive result to a conventional war against Russia.

Which means this war is likely to go nuclear.

Jewish history is a chain of disasters: inquisitions, holocausts and pogroms. Time after time, throughout their history, Jews find themselves discriminated against, persecuted and expelled and, to most Jews, this continuum of tragedy is largely a mystery. Yet one would expect that Jews, clever people for sure, would peer into their past, understand it and take whatever measures necessary to change their fate.

Switzerland Follows Iceland In Declaring War Against The Banksters

Iceland has gained the admiration of populists in recent years by doing that which no other nation in the world seems to be willing or capable of doing: prosecuting criminal bankers for engineering financial collapse for profit.

Their effective revolt against the banking class, who drove the tiny nation into economic crisis in 2008, is the brightest example yet that the world does not have to be indebted in perpetuity to an austere and criminal wealthy elite. In 2015, 26 Icelandic bankers were sentenced to prison and the government ordered a bank sale to benefit the citizenry.

Inspired by Iceland’s progress, activists in Switzerland are now making an important stand against the banking cartels and have successfully petitioned to bring an initiative to public referendum that would attack the private banks where it matters most: their power to lend money they don’t actually have, and to create money out of thin air.

Google ‘Directly Engaged’ In Clinton Campaign, Says Julian Assange

Specifically, Assange claimed, “The chairman of Google, Eric Schmidt, set up a company to run the digital component of Hillary Clinton’s campaign.”

Eric Schmidt did in fact create a company in the last quarter of 2015 called The Groundwork whose website is empty except for a single placeholder logo. Breitbart has previously reported on The Groundwork and how it was reportedly developed to install Clinton in the Oval Office. However, whether or not Google itself is a part of Schmidts’ involvement in The Groundwork remains unclear to the public.

US Launching Soaring Number of Airstrikes Against ISIS in Iraq, Syria

With the fighting against ISIS increasingly confined to densely populated cities like Mosul and Raqqa, the US air war against them continues to escalate precipitously, with record numbers of airstrikes in recent months, and the coalition dropping over 7,000 munitions on Iraq and Syria in just the last two months.

Air Force Central Command spokeswoman Capt. Kathleen Atanasoff attributed to the continued increase in strikes to the effort to support Iraq’s invasion of Mosul, a city of well over a million people. With the fighting there heavily confined to residential neighborhoods, however, the heavy use of airstrikes must raise concern of large civilian tolls.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Civilian casualties are never a concern of the US military, when it comes to Iraq's oil being under control of a US-centric government, and only sold for US dollars.

And the civilian death tolls in Iraq and Syria, will most likely skyrocket from here.

Trump Expands Special Forces Deployments Around Africa, Mideast

Reports from earlier this month that Pentagon has been increasing deployments of special forces around the Middle East and Africa appears to be continuing apace, with the most recent reports suggesting that President Trump has expanded the deployments into Central Africa, and is continuing the policy across the region.

The use of small-scale special forces as an alternative to larger deployments of regular combat soldiers became popular in the Obama Administration as a way to keep official troop levels comparatively low while getting into more and more military operations around the world.

While President Trump has been deploying larger numbers of regular ground troops into Syria and Iraq, the special force deployments have continued apace, and those familiar with the situation say he is likely to remove current restrictions on the special forces carrying out raids into Somalia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There's a saying in French, and the approximate translation is, "The more things change, the more they remain the same", and I am seeing this as a very honest leitmotif for the Trump administration's early months.

The US government is continuing to flex its military muscle around the world to expropriate resources to which it has no moral right; make sure that the rulers in the countries which have those resources are western-centric; and insure that those resources are sold only in US dollars.

I...am not amused.

EUROZONE TURMOIL: Spain, Italy and Greece owe massive debt of €1 TRILLION to ECB

EURO states owe the European Central Bank (ECB) a staggering €1trillion as they teeter on the verge of bankruptcy amid warnings a debt bubble is on the horizon.

Analysts condemned the "flawed economics of this reckless [EU] experiment" and said the ECB faces a rude awakening as states crumble under the burden of debt.

Market conditions in Eurozone are showing signs of a return to the conditions that sparked the 2011 European debt crisis which first reared its head in 2009.

The ECB uses a system called Target2 to assess levels of debt and the bank's data appears to show it is only a matter of time before the current system breaks.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I do not know how long that "matter of time" before the system breaks down completely; but I would imagine that this will come sooner rather than later.

Poroshenko says Ukraine needs IMF next $1bln tranche as 'air to breathe'

Kiev needs the next tranche worth $1 bln from the IMF as "air to breathe", Ukraine’s President Pyotr Poroshenko said at a meeting of the Council for Regional Development on Monday.

"This is not only $1 bln the country needs as the air, this is also a macro financial assistance from the EU (where we also met all the criteria) which will be granted once the money from the IMF is transferred to the account of the National Bank. This is 600 mln euros of extra funds," he said.

Poroshenko said that funds from international organizations will be directed "to specific projects", to "joint territorial communities" and will be used "to resolve issues ranging from the construction of infrastructure to energy saving."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Due to the massive corruption and graft which has poisoned Ukraine's political atmosphere, the IMF's "investment" in Poroshenko's Ukraine has been an abject, and complete failure, and they know it, but are impotent to stop what is going on.

U.N. Nuclear Inspector: North Korea’s Capability Has Entered A ‘New Phase’

North Korea’s nuclear weapons program has entered a “new phase,” with the country having doubled the size of its uranium-enrichment facility in recent years, Yukiya Amano, director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency, told The Wall Street Journal.

“The situation is very bad …. It has gone into a new phase,” Amano told the publication Monday. “All of the indications point to the fact that North Korea is making progress, as they declared.”

And while Amano believes a diplomatic solution, like the one he helped broker between world powers and Iran in 2015, is “essential,” he’s skeptical such an agreement can be reached with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and his government.

“We don’t have the reason to be optimistic,” he told the Journal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, because "“We don’t have the reason to be optimistic”, is Amano "grooming" the US and the West for a war against Korea, and most probably China?!?

That would be a pure, utter catastrophe for the United States government right now, due to its military's lack of cost-effective, and militarily effective weaponry, compared to that of China and Russia; its lack of funds to pursue such a war; the lack of troop strength, compared to that of Russia and China; and a lack of domestic manufacturing.

To avoid such a war, negotiations present the only possible solution, with North Korea given full trade privileges, in exchange for abandoning its nuclear weapons program.

Report: Law Enforcement Leaks Database To Journalist Containing Trump Wiretap Info

According to investigative journalist Jerome Corsi reporting for Infowars, law enforcement sources out of Arizona have provided a database containing the “individual records of U.S. citizens under National Security Agency (NSA) electronic surveillance in the years 2004 through 2010,” thus proving once and for all that Donald J. Trump was, in fact, under surveillance during Barack Obama’s tenure as President.

But if that’s not enough to burst your bubble, what you are about to read next will, because the absolute bombshell report doesn’t stop there. As it turns out Infowars founder and popular radio talk show host Alex Jones was also under surveillance in Texas.

First U.S. Carrier Returns To Gulf Since Trump Inauguration

A U.S. aircraft carrier passed through a strategic waterway separating Iran from U.S.-backed Arab states on Tuesday for the first time since President Donald Trump took office two months ago.

Nearly 20 smaller Iranian boats looked on as the USS George H.W. Bush approached the Gulf through the Strait of Hormuz. About one-fifth of the world’s oil passes through the Strait and there are occasional incidents in the area involving U.S. and Iranian military vessels.

Years of mutual animosity eased when Washington lifted sanctions on Tehran last year after a deal to curb Iran’s nuclear goals. But serious differences remain over Iran’s ballistic missiles as well as conflicts in Syria and Iraq.

While still a presidential candidate in September, Trump vowed that any Iranian vessels that harassed the U.S. Navy in the Gulf would be “shot out of the water

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I firmly believe that, given half a chance, Iran could be a tolerable partner to the US; of course, that's not going to happen, because Saudi Arabia and Israel don't want to see it happen.

And BTW, Tehran is on my bucket list, for the incredible, consistent history, art, and culture. Their national orchestra is wonderful

And if you ever get the chance, please see the following video, done by a charming Israeli videographer, when he went to Iran to see how its Jewish community was faring, and the answer is, quite well!.

Don't Tell Mother I'm In Iran

A war against Iran, to mollify Saudi and Israel would be one big, fat, hairy mistake, because most likely the Russians will enter such a war on the side of Iran.

And the US military doesn't have the troop strength; the money; the weaponry; or the manufacturing to guarantee a positive outcome to a conventional war with Russia.

FBI director blasted by Democrats after probe revelation

FBI Director James Comey's testimony that the bureau has been quietly investigating possible links between associates of President Donald Trump and Russian officials since the summer enraged Democrats who already blamed him for rattling the 2016 campaign's closing days.

For the first time, Comey confirmed that the FBI had opened a probe into the Trump campaign in July, the same month he called an unusual news conference to announce the agency had finished its investigation into whether Hillary Clinton mishandled classified information - and three months before he scrambled the White House race a second time by announcing that the Clinton probe was continuing, just days before the election.

The revelation drew the ire of Clinton supporters who called out what they said looked like a double-standard and a breach of bureau norms that caused their nominee's surprising defeat.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There's gratitude for you. Comey gave Hillary a free pass on those Title 18 felonies. She could (should) be in jail right now. But the Democrats don;t appreciate that.

White House Considering Sweeping Sanctions On North Korea

The Trump administration is considering sweeping sanctions aimed at cutting North Korea off from the global financial system as part of a broad review of measures to counter Pyongyang’s nuclear and missile threat, a senior U.S. official said on Monday.

The sanctions would be part of a multi-pronged approach of increased economic and diplomatic pressure – especially on Chinese banks and firms that do the most business with North Korea – plus beefed-up defenses by the United States and its South Korean and Japanese allies, according to the administration official familiar with the deliberations.

While the long-standing option of pre-emptive military strikes against North Korea is not off the table – as reflected by U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s warning to Pyongyang during his Asia tour last week - the new administration is giving priority for now to less-risky options.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am very relieved that Chinese President Xi Jinping and President Trump are meeting in early April; I hope that the two leaders can come up with a plan which includes getting North Korea back to the negotiating table to create a peace treaty to replace the existing armistice, with full guarantees for trade, etc., in exchange for North Korea stopping its nuclear weapons program.

But these potentially upcoming, draconian sanctions make me nervous, because very frequently, such sanctions are a prelude to war. Let us remember what Security Council sanctions did to the children of Iraq, pre-invasion:

As many as 576,000 Iraqi children may have died since the end of the Persian Gulf war because of economic sanctions imposed by the Security Council, according to two scientists who surveyed the country for the Food and Agriculture Organization. The study also found steeply rising malnutrition among the young, suggesting that more children will be at risk in the coming years. The results of the survey will appear on Friday in The Lancet, the journal of the British Medical Association.

I am hoping that the US and China can find the right balance of "carrot and stick" in these negotiations.

Stoltenberg to Baltics: No Russian attack coming, but we're alarmed at Russia's "possible intentions"

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said that the Baltic countries are not subject to the threat of military attack. It follows from this statement that the calls of the heads of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia to increase the presence of the North Atlantic alliance in their countries are unjustified, and the already existing NATO armed forces need to be withdrawn from the Baltics as unneeded.

"NATO sees concerns about terrorism and cyberattacks, but nothing points to the possibility of a conventional military attack on any of the NATO countries, including the Baltic countries," said Secretary General of the North Atlantic Alliance Jens Stoltenberg during his official visit to Denmark.

"We are alarmed by the actions of Russia and its possible intentions, but at the same time it is important that we do not overdramatize the situation," said Stoltenberg.

RUSSIA CONSPIRACY MONGERING HITS WALL AT CONGRESSIONAL HEARING

It was over five hours of odd metaphors, logical fallacies, and dark accusations, but the House Intelligence Committee hearing into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, starring FBI Director James Comey and NSA Director Mike Rogers, ended with no substantial revelations.

The only news was the confirmation of a previously reported FBI investigation, which began in July.

While ranking Democrat Adam Schiff (D-CA) and others did their best Joe McCarthy impression, the show was stolen by Representative Denny Heck (D-WA), who claimed the entire affair was an “inside job” and that the “attack” by Russia was akin to 9/11.

Britain’s high street banks processed nearly $740m from a vast money-laundering operation run by Russian criminals with links to the Russian government and the KGB, the Guardian can reveal.

HSBC, the Royal Bank of Scotland, Lloyds, Barclays and Coutts are among 17 banks based in the UK, or with branches here, that are facing questions over what they knew about the international scheme and why they did not turn away suspicious money transfers.

The Global Laundromat: how did it work and who benefited?

Documents seen by the Guardian show that at least $20bn appears to have been moved out of Russia during a four-year period between 2010 and 2014. The true figure could be $80bn, detectives believe.

One senior figure involved in the inquiry said the money from Russia was “obviously either stolen or with criminal origin”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Imagine my (complete absence of) shock, in light of the fact that HSBC laundered drug, and terrorist organisation's money as well!!

HSBC escaped US money-laundering charges after Osborne's intervention

It's what HBSC does, and does with impunity, because it is adjudged by the British government as TBTF (too big to fail)!!

And fines won't stop this behaviour on the part of banks. The only thing that will begin to stop it is prosecuting those who sign off on these practices, and having them sentenced to hard jail time.

Unfortunately, however, that will only happen when pigs gain the ability to fly; the elite rarely eat their own.

Dozen Most Insane Statements From US Congress’ Hearing on ‘Russian Spying’

Congress Scalps FBI Director: Stop Spewing ‘Quadruple Hearsay’ About Russian 'Meddling'

Trey Gowdy (R-SC) is asking Comey (both were prosecutors once) about hearsay and newspaper articles as proof.

"The system we respect would laugh you out of court" if one showed up with a newspaper article as evidence, Gowdy says. "How do you cross-examine an anonymous source? How do you cross-examine hearsay?"

The FBI investigation itself is creating a cloud over the sitting administration, Nunes tells Comey.

Comey says he can't answer if the FBI has any evidence of any wrongdoing.

"I can tell you that we don't have any evidence," he says, urging Comey to hurry with his probe and ending the hearing.

THE UPCOMING TRADE WAR BETWEEN THE U.S. AND CHINA WILL BE THE BIGGEST IN THE HISTORY OF THE PLANET

The United States and China are the two largest economies in the world by far, and the upcoming trade war that is about to erupt will be cataclysmic for both sides. The Trump administration and the Chinese government are both gearing up for a prolonged trade war, and this is going to have very severe implications for the entire global economy. During the campaign, Donald Trump repeatedly stated that we “can’t continue to allow China to rape our country”, and he was quite correct about that. Over the past ten years, the U.S. has run a trade deficit of over $2 trillion with China, and as a result of imbalanced trade we have lost tens of thousands of manufacturing businesses, millions of good paying jobs, and hundreds of billions of dollars of tax revenue.
So clearly something needs to be done to balance our trade with China and other countries. But the situation must also be handled delicately, because trade disruptions could bring substantial short-term economic pain.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Trade wars make me nervous, because many times, they are simply preludes to actual shooting wars.

Putin Sends Message to Israel: ‘Your Freedom to Act in Syria Is Over’

First the first time ever, Israel was forced to officially acknowledge the airstrike in Syria – most likely because this time an Israeli plane was downed, as well as another possibly hit – while carrying out pre-dawn strikes against Syria near Palmyra.

Predictably, Israel are completely denying their planes were hit, for public relations reasons.

However, Russia was not happy with Israel’s reckless attacks last Friday, especially as they came on the heals of Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu’s visit to Moscow last week, where he and Russian President Vladimir Putin discussed the regional security situation and well as conflicts in the airspace over Syria. Israel’s demands were that it would not stand for a Iranian military presence in Syria, or that of Hezbollah which Tel Aviv label as “Iran’s proxies.”

INSIDE THE TRUMP LOBBY THAT WANTS TO BREAK-UP IRAQ

A secret network tied to Cambridge Analytica, Islamist insurgents, ExxonMobil and the Koch brothers has convinced Trump to let go of Iraqi national unity.

Ex-Bush administration officials with pro-Trump leanings have forged a secret alliance with a former private Iraqi Pentagon contractor who is a member of one of Iraq’s wealthiest dynasties.Their mission is to promote the break-up of Iraq as the only viable way to defeat the Islamic State (ISIS). They have achieved partial success: on Monday, the Trump administration announced a subtle but seismic shift in US policy toward the possibility of Iraq’s dissolution.Yet this network has been intimately connected to Cambridge Analytica (the technology firm that ran Trump’s election campaign), entities that have sponsored ISIS and other Islamist militants, as well as to ExxonMobil and the Koch brothers?—?who might benefit from the break-up of the country.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

From the moment the US invaded and occupied Iraq, this was precisely the outcome which Israel wanted; Tel Aviv wanted to see a fracturing of Iraq into little fiefdoms, so that it would be impossible for Iraq, as a national entity, to ever attain the status it had as one of the most financially viable, and educationally progressive, countries in the Middle East.

Monsanto Weed Killer Roundup Faces New Doubts on Safety in Unsealed Documents

The court documents included Monsanto’s internal emails and email traffic between the company and federal regulators. The records suggested that Monsanto had ghostwritten research that was later attributed to academics and indicated that a senior official at the Environmental Protection Agency had worked to quash a review of Roundup’s main ingredient, glyphosate, that was to have been conducted by the United States Department of Health and Human Services.

The documents also revealed that there was some disagreement within the E.P.A. over its own safety assessment.

STEALING FROM THE CITIZENRY: HOW GOVERNMENT GOONS USE CIVIL ASSET FORFEITURE TO ROB US BLIND

“Civil forfeiture laws represent one of the most serious assaults on private property rights in the nation today. Under civil forfeiture, police and prosecutors can seize your car or other property, sell it and use the proceeds to fund agency budgets—all without so much as charging you with a crime. Unlike criminal forfeiture, where property is taken after its owner has been found guilty in a court of law, with civil forfeiture, owners need not be charged with or convicted of a crime to lose homes, cars, cash or other property. Americans are supposed to be innocent until proven guilty, but civil forfeiture turns that principle on its head. With civil forfeiture, your property is guilty until you prove it innocent.”

- “ Policing for Profit: The Abuse of Civil Asset Forfeiture,” Institute for Justice
In jolly old England, Robin Hood stole from the rich to give to the poor.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This country has gone full tilt-boogie right into Code Napoleon Law territory, where now, a person is considered guilty until proven innocent.

Emails show Monsanto tried to 'ghostwrite' research

Emails released as part of a federal lawsuit against Monsanto suggest the agriculture supplier cozied up to an EPA regulator and sought to whitewash studies to ignore potential cancer-causing effects of an herbicide found in weed-killer.

NPR reports the emails show the company asked scientists to co-sign safety studies on glyphosate, an active ingredient in Roundup, after the International Agency for Research on Cancer found glypshosate may cause cancer. NPR wrote the company emails were revealed earlier this week in a lawsuit brought by cancer victims accusing the company of working with the EPA to bury health dangers of the herbicide.

The emails show company representative William Heydens suggesting the company "ghost-write" a finding. He wrote, according to NPR, "we would be keeping the cost down by us doing the writing and they would just edit & sign their names so to speak."

THEY THOUGHT SHE WAS CRAZY: DOCTOR EXTRACTS RFID CHIP FROM SEX TRAFFICKING VICTIM

If someone walks into a hospital and claims that they’re being tracked, and that they need to have a tracking device removed, there’s a pretty good chance that they’re going to be sent to a mental institution instead. However, according to a doctor who wished to remain anonymous to protect his patient, that very situation occurred last October and it didn’t end how you might expect.

The patient in question was a 28-year-old woman who claimed that she had a GPS tracking device planted in her body. Normally a patient like that would be regarded as crazy, but this woman appeared totally sane, and she had an incision mark on her side. So the doctor decided to check her out anyway. The medical staff at the hospital were stunned when they finally gave her an x-ray.

Campaign Against Antisemitism is a campaign against Palestinians

The Campaign Against Antisemitism is a British propaganda organization and registered charity that specializes in defaming Palestine solidarity campaigners. When I launched a petition calling for the group to be deregistered, it responded in a hostile manner.

It first tried to persuade the website Change.org to take the petition down. When that failed, its supporters attacked the petition in an article published by the Daily Mail, a paper which once praised Adolf Hitler for having “saved Germany from Israelites of international attachments.”

Originality not being its strong point, the Campaign Against Antisemitism then alleged that I was a “notorious anti-Semite.”

GREEK POLICE INTERCEPT 8 PARCEL BOMBS HEADED TO EU INSTITUTIONS & COMPANIES

Greek police have reported that they found and neutralized eight suspected parcel bombs at a postal sorting center in Athens on Monday. Last week, two such bombs targeted the German finance ministry and the IMF.

“Eight suspected packages which listed persons in European countries as recipients were located and confiscated today,” police said in a text message to the media.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am very relieved that these weapons were intercepted; unfortunately, however, with Greece in the throes of the agonising austerity into which the IMF has put it, I am very concerned that these bombs may not be the end of this problem.

As I have said many times before on this blog, as a Christian pacifist activist and witness, I abhor, and never advocate, violence; but I can understand how it can happens, when people get pushed against a wall.

And it appears that Greece's financial problems are about to get a whole lot worse this year:

Fox News pulls Judge Napolitano over his Trump wiretap claims

Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano is being kept off the air indefinitely amid the controversy over his unverified claims that British intelligence wiretapped Trump Tower at the behest of former President Obama.

Fox News did not respond to inquiries about Napolitano’s status Monday. Napolitano was conspicuously missing from the network’s coverage of the confirmation hearings on Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch — an event in which he typically would have played a significant role. He has not been on the air since Thursday.

People familiar with the situation who could speak only on the condition of anonymity said Napolitano is not expected to be on Fox News Channel any time in the near future. Napolitano was not available for comment.

UK tabloid distorts traditional Russian pancake festival into ‘Ultra’ football thug fights

UK tabloid the Mirror has used the traditional Russian festival of ‘Maslenitsa’, celebrated during the last week before Lent, as part of a “shock investigation” into Russian football hooliganism.

A video with the title “Russian ‘football fans’ in bizarre refereed ‘fights’”, published on the Mirror website on Monday, was part of an article titled “Russia's Ultra yobs infiltrated amid warnings England fans could be KILLED at World Cup.”

The video and accompanying photos purport to show Russian football ‘Ultras’ in “violent action” at a “special festival.”

The fighting shown in the video and photos is the traditional Russian “wall-to-wall”(‘stenka na stenku’) sparring between men dressed in traditional folk clothes, representing a centuries-old tradition.

The caption reading “The Ultras in violent action” shows two men in boxing gloves, one of whom is wearing a traditional red Russian shirt called a Kosovorotka.

“Washington’s Pope”? Who is Pope Francis?

Pope Francis is said to have brought “Liberation Theology into the Vatican”, in the footsteps of Francis of Assisi.

US and Russian Military Leaders Are Meeting Again, Breaking a Long and Dangerous Drought

The military leaders of the world’s most lethal nuclear-tipped states met in February, the first such meeting in three years. The two generals got together again earlier this month, once more in relative obscurity that belied their meetings’ tremendous importance.

Long projected, but politically and geographically difficult to finalize, the Feb. 16 meeting was a personal first for Gen. Joseph Dunford and Gen. Valery Gerasimov, respectively the U.S. Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and Russia’s chief of the General Staff. They met in Baku, Azerbaijan, and frankly but cordially discussed the overall diminished state of U.S. and Russian military relations, the need for better communications between key leaders, and ways to deconflict military activities that could inadvertently put both countries at risk.

Boston Public Schools students get new look at the world with 'culturally proficient' map

Boston Public Schools are ditching the traditional world maps many might remember hanging on their classroom walls for something the schools say is more accurate: the Gall-Peters Projection map.

The Peters Projection map is said to present a "more culturally proficient view of the world" than conventional Mercator projection map, and will be offered to second, seventh and eleventh grade classrooms throughout the Boston Public School System.

James Gall created the outline in the mid-nineteenth century, and Arno Peters brought it into the spotlight in the 1970's. The Peters Projection maps the spherical shape of the globe onto a vertical cylinder that is then stretched horizontally to double its length.

The more traditionally-used Mercator map, created in the 17th century for purposes of sailing and navigating, represent countries disproportionately.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Maps and charts are not supposed to be decorations. As this article points out, the Mercator Projection was created as a tool for navigation. The Peters Projection cannot be used for that; headings come out wrong. And while it is true that the Mercator projection distorts the polar zones, simply distorting the equatorial regions in the other direction isn't really a solution, merely a pander to those "offended" by the Mercator map.

NZSAS killed civilians in raid, Nicky Hager's new book claims

New Zealand elite soldiers killed six civilians and injured 15 during a raid in Afghanistan in 2010, author Nicky Hager's new book alleges.

Hager is launching his latest book Hit & Run at an event in Wellington.

Hundreds of people have crammed into the Unity Books store, including a large media contingent.

Hit & Run, which was co-authored with freelance war journalist Jon Stephenson, is based on the Security Intelligence Service's (SAS) response to the first New Zealand death in combat in the country.

Soldiers involved in the raid approached the two authors and said they believed they had been involved in war crimes, Hager said at the book launch today.

New Zealand's Defence Minister at the time of the raid, Wayne Mapp, has previously said that no civilians were killed.

Speaking to media after the book launch, Hager said he and Stephenson had discussed the raid with legal experts and they had said there were grounds to suspect war crimes had been committed.

Spying reforms allowing GCSB to spy on Kiwis pass into law with little opposition

The Government's foreign intelligence agency can now spy on New Zealanders under spying reforms passed into law this afternoon.

The New Zealand Intelligence and Security Bill was supported at its final hurdle by all parties except the Greens.

The reforms have not attracted the same level of debate and controversy as the expansion of the Government Communications Security Bureau's (GCSB) powers in 2013. That is partly because the latest round of law changes have cross-party support.

The bill brings the GCSB and the NZ Security Intelligence Service (SIS) under the same laws and warranting regime.

In a fundamental shift in policy, it permits the GCSB to monitor New Zealanders if national security issues are at stake.

Until now, New Zealanders could only be targeted by the agency if they were an agent of a foreign power.
