The Last, Great Run For The U.S. Dollar, The Death Of The Euro And 74 Trillion In Currency Derivatives At Risk

Are we on the verge of an unprecedented global currency crisis?  On Tuesday, the euro briefly fell below $1.07 for the first time in almost a dozen years.  And the U.S. dollar continues to surge against almost every other major global currency.  The U.S. dollar index has now risen an astounding 23 percent in just the last eight months.  That is the fastest pace that the U.S. dollar has risen since 1981.

But while ISIS claim the child - described in the video as one of the 'cubs of the caliphate' - was the shooter, careful editing means it is impossible to tell whether he pulled the trigger.

Pro-Russia fighters have withdrawn weapons, says Ukraine president

The Ukrainian president, Petro Poroshenko, says pro-Russia rebels have withdrawn a significant amount of weaponry from the frontlines in eastern Ukraine, three weeks after a ceasefire deal was struck.

Attacks have fallen significantly, but accusations of continued violence on both sides show the fragility of the peace accord agreed in Minsk last month, which calls for the withdrawal of heavy weapons from frontlines.

Global Warming (lies) By Walter E. Williams

snip: Climate change propaganda is simply a ruse for a socialist agenda. Consider the statements of some environmentalist leaders. Christiana Figueres, the U.N.’s chief climate change official, said that her unelected bureaucrats are undertaking “probably the most difficult task” they have ever given themselves, “which is to intentionally transform the (global) economic development model.” In 2010, German economist and Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change official Ottmar Edenhofer said, “One must say clearly that we redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy.” The article in which that interview appeared summarized Edenhofer’s views this way: “Climate policy has almost nothing to do anymore with environmental protection. … The next world climate summit in Cancun is actually an economy summit during which the distribution of the world’s resources will be negotiated.”

First Hillary, Now Chuck Hagel: Former Secretary Of Defense Also Used Private Email

For all the administration's scaremongering about hackers hacking into every possible electronic source that is connected to the internet (and in the case of StuxNet, those that aren't as Iran found out the hard way), it appears that the biggest culprit when it comes to lax communication security was the administration itself. And not just Hillary: moments ago NBC revealed that none other than former Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, who as a reminder resigned in November following intense scapegoating by Obama who needed to a sacrificial calf following the disastrous midterm elections, also used a personal, non-supervised email address.

United States Central Intelligence Agency researchers have been working for years to crack the security of Apple's iPhone and iPad, and may have done so through the creation of a modified version of Xcode, Apple's software development tool designed for developers.

According to secret documents obtained by The Intercept, at a 2012 "Jamboree" that focused on security flaws found in various electronics, CIA researchers outlined both a hacked version of Xcode and a modified OS X updater that could be used to install malicious software like keyloggers.

US Congress on sale

Consider another very revealing sentence in the LA Times story:

"Menendez also faced reports that he and Melgen consorted with prostitutes in the Dominican Republic, some of them underage, but those reports were later discredited."

The part about the reports having been discredited is what is known in the journalism business as an "obligatory disclaimer," which functions in rather the same way as a "non-denial denial." What it means is: "Menendez was nailed for consorting with child prostitutes, but if we open that can of worms, we will step on the toes of too many powerful people, so let's just call it a 'rumor' and leave it at that."

Cops Force Mentally Challenged Woman to Wear “I’m Dope” T-shirt So they Could Ridicule Her

A lawsuit has been brought against two New York City cops claiming they exploited a mentally challenged woman for their own disgusting buffoonery.

According to the complaint, Hannah Biggan – a janitor working at the 52nd Precinct station in the Bronx for 23 years – claimed that in May 2013 officers Nicholas Konner and John Repetti gave her a size 3XL t-shirt with “I’m Dope @cashcowmovement” written on it.

They then asked her to put it on and pose with Konner, while both men cruelly mocked her and snapped photos, the complaint says.

Iran’s Foreign Minister Responds To US Senators’ Letter

Asked about the open letter of 47 US Senators to Iranian leaders, the Iranian Foreign Minister, Dr. Javad Zarif, responded that “in our view, this letter has no legal value and is mostly a propaganda ploy. It is very interesting that while negotiations are still in progress and while no agreement has been reached, some political pressure groups are so afraid even of the prospect of an agreement that they resort to unconventional methods, unprecedented in diplomatic history. This indicates that like Netanyahu, who considers peace as an existential threat, some are opposed to any agreement, regardless of its content.”

NATO’s New Lease on Life: Confronting Foes of Its Own Creation

In his speech at the Royal United Services Institute looking at the ‘changing nature of threats faced by the UK’, Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond described Russia as a principal threat and geopolitical foe.

In explaining the reasoning, Philip Hammond said that for two decades since the end of the Cold War, "we and our allies sought to draw our old adversary [Russia] into the rules-based international system…

"We now have to accept that those efforts have been rebuffed. We are now faced with a Russian leader bent not on joining the international rules-based system which keeps the peace between nations, but on subverting it."

He has resigned as longtime chairman of the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), resigned from the Indian Prime Minister’s climate council, and has been disinvited from speaking at a conference at Harvard University.

Currently on leave from The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI), the New Delhi-based entity he has led for three decades, Pachauri has been banned by the courts from entering TERI facilities and from contacting anyone who works there. He has also been grounded. A man who once joked that he “lives at 30,000 feet” due to his extensive travel schedule, is now prohibited from leaving the country without permission from a judge.

Five High-Ranked Ukrainian Officials Die in String of Mysterious Suicides

As the Ukraine crisis continues, violence isn’t limited to the streets. A number of top Ukrainian officials have died under mysterious circumstances during one 34-day period, leading many to suspect foul play.

The first death occurred on January 26 of this year, and would prove to be the beginning of a most violent month.

The Hunting Rifle

A former first deputy chief of Ukrainian Railways, Mykola Serhiyenko had worked directly for former president Mykola Azarov, who is now wanted by Interpol for embezzlement and misappropriation.

On January 26, Serhiyenko, 57, was found dead in his home in Kiev. He was alone, with all of his windows and doors locked from the inside. Apparent cause of death: a gunshot wound inflicted by his own hunting rifle.

As Market Watch reported separately before Mrs. Clinton’s press conference today, Bill Clinton “does not use email.” During his entire life, he has only sent two emails, both of which were when he was President, not during the time that his wife said she was corresponding with him. And neither were to his wife.

Extreme Weather Watch: February 2015 Sets Records for Snow and Cold

Many records for snowfall and extreme cold were set in February. Some might think this is a sign of the nonexistence of global warming, but they would be wrong. Maybe the terminology should be more appropriately “climate change,” but global warming still holds if the average surface air temperature sets records as it did in 2014 despite extreme cold in the northeast US. It remains to be seen if extreme heat elsewhere in the world will make up for the extreme cold over much of the eastern half of the US in 2015.

Mini Exploding ''Bee'' Drones Developed to Support Army

Nicholas West

Micro Air Vehicles have long been researched by the military for use in both surveillance and lethal targeting missions. An Air Force video released in early 2013 offered a vision of insect-sized drone swarms that could autonomously fly and communicate to fulfill their mission, using existing power sources to harness energy and remain "hidden in plain sight."

A new video from two Polish defense contractors, WB Electronics and Optimum, indicates the increasing miniaturization of drone technology as they continue along the path toward achieving the above-mentioned near-invisibility...

Six Common Food Additives Used in the US that Are Banned in Other Countries

Due to the FDA’s regulation of food additives, most people assume that if food is on grocery store shelves, it must be 100 percent safe for human consumption. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case. As the FDA states: “Because of inherent limitations of science, FDA can never be absolutely certain of the absence of any risk from the use of any substance.” In fact, several food additives approved for use in the U.S. by the FDA are banned in other parts of the world.

So if you think everything in your pantry is safe to eat, think again. Here are 6 common food additives found in the U.S. that are banned in other countries.

NSA sued by Wikimedia, rights groups over mass surveillance

Bulk collection there violates the constitution's First Amendment, which protects freedom of speech and association, and the Fourth Amendment, which protects against unreasonable search and seizure, the lawsuit said.

The plaintiffs include the Wikimedia Foundation, which runs the online encyclopedia Wikipedia, the conservative Rutherford Institute, Amnesty International USA and the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, among other groups.

The groups said in the lawsuit that upstream surveillance "reduces the likelihood" that clients, journalists, foreign government officials, victims of human rights abuses and other individuals will share sensitive information with them.

Legal standing, which requires the organizations to show individual, particular harm, is the most significant obstacle for them, said Stephen Vladeck, a professor at American University Washington College of Law.

For the First Time Ever, a Prosecutor Will Go to Jail for Wrongfully Convicting an Innocent Man

Today in Texas, former prosecutor and judge Ken Anderson pled guilty to intentionally failing to disclose evidence in a case that sent an innocent man, Michael Morton, to prison for the murder of his wife. When trying the case as a prosecutor, Anderson possessed evidence that may have cleared Morton, including statements from the crime's only eyewitness that Morton wasn't the culprit. Anderson sat on this evidence, and then watched Morton get convicted. While Morton remained in prison for the next 25 years, Anderson's career flourished, and he eventually became a judge.

In today's deal, Anderson pled to criminal contempt, and will have to give up his law license, perform 500 hours of community service, and spend 10 days in jail. Anderson had already resigned in September from his position on the Texas bench.
