Pubic hair grooming could be putting people at greater risk of sexually-transmitted infections (STIs), doctors warn.

It’s not just that shaving, waxing and trimming can leave small tears in the skin, which make for fertile grounds for diseases. Groomers were also found to be more sexually active than the less preened.

Government spies can see everything you’re doing with your phone on a plane

If you like your privacy, don’t fly the friendly skies with your phone connected to in-flight networks. American and British intelligence have been surveilling phone use aboard civil aircraft since at least 2005, according to a new investigation by Le Monde based on secret documents from former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden.

Simply turning on your phone when the plane is flying above 10,000 feet will reveal your location to the NSA, according to an article from a classified internal newsletter.

Dutch reject calls to cease funding Palestinian groups

The Dutch government has rejected calls to cease funding organizations that advocate a boycott of Israel.

In June this year, NGO Monitor – a lobby group with close ties to the Israeli political and military establishments claimed it had scored a significant victory in the Netherlands.

NGO Monitor was referring to a decision made by the Dutch parliament that a review should be undertaken of the country’s aid to organizations supporting the Palestinian-led boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement. According to NGO Monitor, the parliament’s vote was the result of briefings that the lobby group had provided on how “radical” activists were engaged in the “demonization” of Israel.

The government in The Hague has now made it clear, however, that it will not bar BDS advocates from receiving aid.

UK Labour MP Ruth Smeeth was funded by Israel lobby

A lawmaker in the UK’s Labour Party who played a key role in this year’s manufactured anti-Semitism crisis maintained ties to the Israel lobby once she entered Parliament.

But these relationships have been overlooked by the British press, which have extensively reported on her allegations of anti-Semitic abuse at the hands of Jeremy Corbyn supporters.

Saleh v. Bush involves claims by an Iraqi woman, Sundus Shaker Saleh, that former President George W. Bush and other high ranking Bush-era officials broke the law when they planned and waged the Iraq War.

Saleh is appealing the immunity provided to the Defendants by the district court in December 2014.

oe Biden received a Kennedy award at a star-studded human rights gala in New York - as he ruled out running for President in 2020, implying that he was only joking about going up against Donald Trump.

Donald Trump TIME Person of the Year

This is the 90th time we have named the person who had the greatest influence, for better or worse, on the events of the year. So which is it this year: Better or worse? The challenge for Donald Trump is how profoundly the country disagrees about the answer.

It’s hard to measure the scale of his disruption. This real estate baron and casino owner turned reality-TV star and provocateur—never a day spent in public office, never a debt owed to any interest besides his own—now surveys the smoking ruin of a vast political edifice that once housed parties, pundits, donors, pollsters, all those who did not see him coming or take him seriously. Out of this reckoning, Trump is poised to preside, for better or worse.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is called "Damning with faint praise."

The McCollum Memo: The Smoking Gun of Pearl Harbor

On October 7, 1940, Lieutenant Commander Arthur McCollum of the Office of Naval Intelligence submitted a memo to Navy Captains Walter Anderson and Dudley Knox (whose endorsement is included in the following scans). Captains Anderson and Knox were two of President Roosevelt's most trusted military advisors.

The memo, scanned below, detailed an 8 step plan to provoke Japan into attacking the United States. President Roosevelt, over the course of 1941, implemented all 8 of the recommendations contained in the McCollum memo. Following the eighth provocation, Japan attacked. The public was told that it was a complete surprise, an "intelligence failure", and America entered World War Two.

The good Father also spoke of how the propagandists would "merchandise lies, murders, hell holes, corpses, and broken hearts for the loved ones left behind." He warned his audience that they would do this "While you people pay to be propagandized" and said "They are still depending upon your gullibility. They are still banking upon your unintelligence, as they say, to lead you like sheep to the slaughter tomorrow, as they did your fathers and brothers yesterday. For oh, they are ingenious!"

HOW TO HAVE HONEST ELECTIONS

Now then, I wish to offer a suggestion for a very simple way to have an open and honest election system. It is not 100% foolproof, but is designed to make it very difficult for cheating to happen and difficult to conceal it. This stands in sharp contrast to the current system, which is designed to facilitate and conceal the manipulation of elections.

First, some basic rules.

San Francisco’s chief judge says he and his colleagues discarded 66,000 arrest warrants issued over five years for quality-of-life crimes, like sleeping on the sidewalk, because it made no sense to lock people up for fines they couldn’t afford.

The crimes, which also include urinating on sidewalks and being drunk in public, are infractions punishable only by fines. But when those who were cited failed to show up in court, judges in the past have issued bench warrants ordering them to appear, with a sentence of five days in jail for failing to show up.

"...everything that the Japanese were planning to do was known to the United States..." ARMY BOARD, 1944

President Roosevelt (FDR) provoked the attack, knew about it in advance and covered up his failure to warn the Hawaiian commanders. FDR needed the attack to sucker Hitler to declare war, since the public and Congress were overwhelmingly against entering the war in Europe. It was his backdoor to war.

FDR blinded the commanders at Pearl Harbor and set them up by -

New Botnet is Attacking the US West Coast with Huge DDoS Attacks

The content delivery network states in the blog post that the company has been observing the overflow of traffic from about two weeks. It seems to be coming from a single source. Seemingly, someone was firstly testing their abilities with a 9-to-5 attack schedule and then the attack pattern was shifted to 24 hours. This new botnet is either equal or superior to the Mirai botnet.

After observing the heavy attack traffic that literally peaked at 172MBPS, which means about a million data packets per second or 400 gigabits per second, CloudFlare concluded that the botnet was being turned on and off by some person who was busy with a 9-to-5 job.

Italy Moves Closer to a BREXIT – 5 Star Movement Poised to Challenge for Leadership Role

In yet another blow to center-left politics, Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi has announced his intention to resign following a dramatic voter rejection of his constitutional reforms package.

renziThis unexpected shift in Italian politics could very well trigger calls for Italy to ‘rethink’ its relationship with Brussels.

If Renzi has his resignation accepted, then the government would be handed over to a ‘care taker’ leader until the next General Election scheduled for 2018, or until a snap election is called. Before any snap election can be called, elite bureaucrats are furiously trying to rewrite Italy’s election laws allegedly to keep “Far Right” parties, like the surging Northern League out of power, but in reality these desperate measures are designed to prevent widely popular insurgent parties like 5 Star from gaining a majority in Parliament.

Here It Comes: EU Threatens “Action” If Facebook Doesn’t Censor All “Fake News” and “Hate Speech” Within 24 Hours

Now the EU is threatening to escalate the situation up from “non-legislative” action if these companies don’t take action to censor “hate speech” and “fake news” within 24 hours.

And of course “hate speech” is very loosely defined here, so it can basically be used to censor free speech online. We all know what the phrase “fake news” has come to denote — and nearly the entire alternative media is encompassed within it.

It should be no surprise that the same “fake news” the EU wants to censor has been blamed for Brexit and the potential for other countries like Italy deciding to leave the EU as well.

The purpose of the European project, at least the purpose sold to the public, was to provide long-term stability to the continent, particularly economic stability. The lesson of the first fifty years of the 20th century was that nationalist competition among states led to economic instability and war.
