EU TRADE DISASTER: Deal with Canada on the brink as German party SUES Brussels over CETA

THE European Union’s flagship trade deal with Canada was on the brink of collapse today after a Germany political party sued Brussels over its implementation.

Centre-left Die Linke has launched legal action to block the controversial Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) pact, saying it is unconstitutional under German law.

The party’s attempt to torpedo the hated deal is just the latest in a series of devastating trade blows for the EU, which is unravelling following the Brexit vote.

New Rules Allow Employers To Pay For Employees' Health Information

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) provisions for employee wellness programs give employers the power to reward or penalize their employees based on whether they complete health screenings and participate in fitness programs. While wellness programs are often welcomed, they put most employees in a bind: give your employer access to extensive, private health data, or give up potentially thousands of dollars a year.

Angela Merkel is slammed for open door immigration policy after Afghan refugee went on axe rampage on a German train

Among her critics is Bavarian Premier Horst Seehofer, who says the influx is more than the country can cope with, according to Bloomberg.

A leader of the anti-immigrant Alternative for Germany (AfD) said Merkel and her supporters were to blame for the dangerous security situation because their 'welcoming policies had brought too many young, uneducated and radical Muslim men to Germany'.

One man claiming to be a member of the far-right NPD party said: 'Well done Mrs Merkel - how many more of these do we have to have to get you to change your mind about unregulated immigration?'

Were the Nice Attacks A False Flag Or A Lone Nut?

By Brandon Turbeville

The recent truck attack in Nice, France was, from the outset, exploited by national governments and reported in a schizophrenic manner that, on one hand, declared the attacker a “weird” loner acting completely on his own by virtue of his many psychological problems while, on the other hand, a terrorist attack aimed at the allegedly democratic institutions of France and the Western world. Among the reports surrounding the attack, many alternative media outlets are suggesting that the attack was yet another false flag engineered or at least facilitated by Western intelligence agencies for the purposes of propaganda, psychic driving, and the establishment of the “new normal” of constant terror and fear.

So which is it?...

Webmaster addition: Road rage exploited for propaganda value.

Craig Murray: Fox, Gould, Werritty and Israel – Please write to your MP

Hansard Publc Admininstration Committee 24/11/2011
Q<369> Paul Flynn: Okay. Matthew Gould has been the subject of a very serious complaint from two of my constituents, Pippa Bartolotti and Joyce Giblin. When they were briefly imprisoned in Israel, they met the ambassador, and they strongly believe—it is nothing to do with this case at all—that he was serving the interest of the Israeli Government, and not the interests of two British citizens. This has been the subject of correspondence.

In your report, you suggest that there were two meetings between the ambassador and Werritty and Liam Fox. Questions and letters have proved that, in fact, six such meetings took place. There are a number of issues around this. I do not normally fall for conspiracy theories, but the ambassador has proclaimed himself to be a Zionist and he has previously served in Iran, in the service. Werritty is a self-proclaimed—

Robert Halfon: Point of order, Chairman. What is the point of this?

Paul Flynn: Let me get to it. Werritty is a self-proclaimed expert on Iran.

Chair: I have to take a point of order.

Robert Halfon: Mr Flynn is implying that the British ambassador to Israel is working for a foreign power, which is out of order.

Failed Coup In Turkey – A Few Initial Thoughts

When I first heard that a coup was in progress in Turkey my first thought was that it was the USA’s way to punish Erdogan for his sudden apology to Russia. Yes, sure, I realized that there were many other possible explanations, but that was the one I was hoping for. I even told my family that if this was a US-backed coup and if Erdogan or his supporters said so, there would be hell to pay for the USA. Less than 24 hour later my hopes were fulfilled:

US public education: Bullshit to train stupefied work animals. Language Arts fails to communicate inspiration for humanity; losing the human spirit’s self-expression to slavish empire (7 of 12)

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

Let’s consider three points:

Absence of purpose for language: Where is the emphasis and practice with communication?
Language Arts is blind to the Orwellian world we live in while ironically “teaching” Orwell.
Teaching grammar as form for language without inspiration for communication to build a brighter future.

And let’s reflect upon three questions:

What does it mean that Language Arts professionals miss the point of language to connect with each other?
What kind of academic discipline is blind to living on an “animal farm” while claiming to “teach” the novels Animal Farm and 1984?
