Body Organ Trafficking: Militants Focus on Children Now

Terrorist groups in Northern Aleppo have formed several criminal gangs in close cooperation with Ankara to smuggle children's body organs to Turkey, Kurdish media reported on Tuesday. The Kurdish-language Hawar news quoted a local source as saying that a group of mercenaries have embarked on kidnapping children and trading their body organs. The source told Hawar news that seven children have been kidnapped in the town of Qabaseen near the town of al-Bab in the last seven days, and evidence and proofs indicate that they have been abducted by the same group that operates with Turkey's help. The report further mentioned that some other children had also been taken earlier in similar cases and no one knows anything about their fate.

The Irish Crimean: Lack of 'capital tyranny' as basis of Russophobia

...Russians have a much deeper conception of "freedom" - building a conception of freedom around a principle like "property-rights" would seem absurdly trivial to them. And apart from its absurd triviality, it should be obvious to anyone, whether they were Russian or not, that building a conception of "freedom" around property-rights would mean freedom only for the rich. Anybody who wasn't deliberately obtuse would see that. Yes, Russia has oligarchs, but this point was key in Yakov's view - Russia has no trans-national corporations. In Russia, the most sublime level of power has never been commercial or financial power, but political power. And that, in Yakov's view, is most centrally why there has been an ongoing project to dismember Russia harboured by Russia's westerly neighbours. This project has been ongoing for 200 years or more. We can trace it at least to the early 19th century, and possibly all the way back to the 16th century...

Death Penalty for corruption proposed in Donetsk

The leader of the People's Democratic Republic of Donetsk, Alexander Zakharchenko, announced the need to impose the death penalty for corruption. Such a statement was made on the TV program "Donetsk format." "In the near future I'm going to do it - toughen the laws that deal with corruption ... You know well that we have a decree on the use of the death penalty as the supreme measure of justice. And, I think, corruption will fall under this definition. Depending on the harm caused to society, corruption will be punished by the laws of wartime deprivation of life. I have already held a number of negotiations with the People's Council, I have received full understanding. Only in a few nuances, the wording of the law, was disagreed with, but this is a technical issue, we must solve them," Zakharchenko said. "Without a doubt, corruption is a disease of any society. There is no specific drug for this disease. Approaches to eradicate all of its, in the DPR are very rigid.

Running from Ukraine has become an epidemic - Ukrainian millionaire. Illusions kill more people than wars

"In Poland, there is a huge, overwhelming, shocking number of Ukrainian workers. In any restaurant, taxi, shop, office, hotel ... We talked with many, they say Ukrainian employees are appreciated. They are unpretentious, professional, working for money, much smaller than any Pole. For them, local authorities immediately came up with work permits, even taxes already paid in Poland. They transport families for, children are sent here for training in Polish schools, universities are happy to take students from Ukraine. By my impression, 5-6 million people have moved to Poland from Ukraine recently. All very bored and cursing with obscenities on what is happening at home, trying to sell apartments, houses but no one wants to buy at any price ", - says a Ukrainian millionaire businessman, Evgeny Chernyak. "Normal people are fleeing from the Ukraine, taking their families with them, taxes and their brains.

Sandy Hook shooting mothers’ average age giving birth = 36 years old. Odds of 20 such elderly mothers in one group = 109,418,989,131,512,370,000 to 1 (109 quintillion, 418 quadrillion, 989 trillion, 131 billion, 512 million, 370 thousand to 1)

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

KateSlate11’s strong catch in 3-minutes:

The alleged Sandy Hook shooting of December 2012 included 20 1st grade children with stated ages of 6 and 7 years old (only four at age seven). From public information,* the average age of those mothers in 2012 is 42.25; meaning their average age giving birth is 36. Some 1st grade students’ mothers will be 36 or older, but what are the odds of a random group of 20 such mothers averaging 36 years of age?

What are the odds?

According to the CDC, the percentage of US mothers giving their first birth at age 35 or older for 2006 is ~8%; about 1 in every 12. Pew Research Center reports that American mothers’ age 35 or older for any birth is 14%. Therefore, let’s estimate the percentage of 1st grade students’ mothers ages being 36 or older at 11%: about 1 in every 9. Age 36 is nine years above CDC average of age 27 for mothers with any number of children giving birth in 2006.

The Presidential Tweet That Is Shaking the War Party

Most of the Donald’s tweets amount to street brawling with his political enemies, but occasionally one of them slices through Imperial Washington’s sanctimonious cant. Indeed, Monday evening’s 140 characters of solid cut right to the bone: The Amazon Washington Post fabricated the facts on my ending massive, dangerous, and wasteful payments to Syrian rebels fighting Assad... Needless to say, we are referencing not the dig at the empire of Bezos, but the characterization of Washington’s anti-Assad policy as "massive, dangerous and wasteful". No stouter blow to the neocon/Deep State "regime change" folly has ever been issued by an elected public official. Yet there it is – the self-composed words of the man in the Oval Office. It makes you even want to buy some Twitter stock!

NATO Jets Accidentally Invade Neutral Finland While Intercepting Russian Planes

Finland reports NATO jets were violating Finnish airspace for about a minute. This puts NATO's accusations that Russia's interceptions of western planes in the Baltic are often "unprofessional" in an interesting perspective. We can't remember an incident where Russian interceptors chasing NATO planes got lost an ended up in a neutral country, so who is the amateur here? Also; the two F-18 fighter jets belong to the Spanish Air Force. We're not surprised. Screw ups is exactly what you can expect when you uproot your air force and send it to "defend" skies 3,000 kilometers from home.

Here’s Why It Doesn’t Matter If North Korea Is Actually a Nuclear Threat

Those who believe that our own government is perfectly willing to commit an atrocity and then blame it on someone else tend to deny threats when they're brought up consistently by the media. Let's take the North Korea nuclear menace, for example.

I've been writing about the rising threat from North Korea for a long time and each time I publish a piece about their missile capability or some outrageous offense, it never fails that someone pops up and says, "North Korea doesn't matter. The government is just making them the bad guy so the US can take military action and the people will support it."

But in truth, that's the part that doesn't matter if you are a firm believer in false flags.

When you see that bright flash of light followed by a mushroom cloud on the horizon, will knowing the source of that cloud be the thing that saves your life or will knowing the steps to take to protect yourself be the deciding factor of whether you live or die?
