NZ bans sale of homes to foreign buyers

A landmark bill banning overseas buyers from purchasing existing Kiwi homes has passed into law.

Associate Finance Minister David Parker said the bill's passage was a significant milestone, and would stop New Zealanders being outbid by wealthier foreign buyers.

Parker said it demonstrated the Government's commitment to making the dream of home ownership a reality for more Kiwis.

“We should not be tenants in our own land," he said.

It has been announced that a collection of 5000-year-old priceless artifacts that were looted in the wake of the fall of Saddam Hussein in 2003 have been identified in London. Local police seized the objects from an illegal dealer in antiquities. The items were identified by experts and this means that they can be returned to the Iraqi government and people. It is hoped that this find and the return of the objects to Baghdad will mark a new phase in the battle against the organized smuggling of antiquities.

Caspian deal an antidote to Washington’s bullyboy tactics

At a time of increased bullying of others by the United States, the five-nation Caspian Sea deal signed earlier this week shows the importance of diplomacy for mutual benefit and security.

While the Trump administration is winding up international tensions across the globe with its penchant for slapping sanctions and tariffs on other nations, the breakthrough development over the Caspian Sea points to how multilateral accord can be achieved, and peace between countries maintained.

For over 20 years, the seashore nations of Azerbaijan, Iran, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan and Russia have been locked in dispute over territorial rights governing the Caspian – the world’s largest inland body of water.

But last Sunday, the leaders of the five countries signed a landmark legal convention which formulates a compromise on sharing the benefits – and responsibilities – of the sea’s rich resources.

TALIBAN PUSHES BACK AGAINST ISIS EXPANSION IN AFGHANISTAN

ISIS has increased its efforts in order to expand its influence in Afghanistan. The local ISIS branch is believed to have about 3,000-5,000 members, including local Afghans, Pakistanis and Uzbeks.

According to available data, most of the terrorists are in the province of Nangarhar. However, cells of the terrorist group operate across the entire country.

Over the past few months, ISIS members have carried a series of terrorist attacks against government targets as well as engaged members of the Taliban in separate clashes and hit-and-run operations.

The ISIS expansion is fueled by fighters and field commanders, whom had fled Syria and Iraq where the terrorist group’s self-proclaimed caliphate was recently defeated. Another factor contributing to growth of the ISIS influence is a poor humanitarian, economic and social situation in the country.

Florida declares a State of Emergency after a devastating toxic algae bloom plagues the Gulf Coast, killing tourism and wildlife

A toxic algae bloom known as Red Tide has overrun Florida's southern Gulf Coast this summer, devastating sea life and driving people from the water.

Red tide - a naturally occurring toxic algae bloom that can be harmful to people with respiratory problems- has spread throughout the Gulf of Mexico, drifting in the water since it began in October.

It also means there are tons of dead fish leaving a foul smelling odor. That has resulted in empty beaches, empty roads and empty restaurants.

'I've never seen it this bad,' said 31-year-old Heather Lamb of Venice. She's a hairdresser and makeup artist who styled herself as a dead mermaid and posted photos on social media to raise awareness of the problem.

What is causing Florida’s algae crisis? 5 questions answered

What’s the difference between red tide and blue-green algae?

Both are photosynthetic microscopic organisms that live in water. Blue-green algae are properly called cyanobacteria. Some species of cyanobacteria occur in the ocean, but blooms – extremely high levels that create green surface scums of algae – happen mainly in lakes and rivers, where salinity is low.

Red tides are caused by a type of algae called a dinoflagellate, which also is ubiquitous in lakes, rivers, estuaries and the oceans. But the particular species that causes red tide blooms, which can literally make water look blood red, occur only in saltwater.

Radioactive sheep boost claims of secret Israeli nuke test

Radioactive isotopes discovered by scientists in Australian sheep have added gravity to longstanding claims that a mysterious flash above the Indian Ocean 39 years ago was actually an illegal Israeli nuclear weapon test.

On September 22, 1979, US satellite Vela 6911 detected a ‘double flash’ near the Marion and Prince Edward Islands in the southern Indian Ocean. Ever since, there has been speculation that it was actually a nuclear weapon test carried out by Israel. According to the memoirs of then-US President Jimmy Carter, this was also the assumption of American generals who briefed him on the incident. The official position of the Israeli state is to neither confirm nor deny having a homegrown military nuclear program.

US losing in Afghanistan: Like Viet Cong, Taliban knows that waiting it out will defeat invaders

The latest conflicting reports about whether or not the Taliban has taken the strategic city of Ghazni between the Afghan capital of Kabul and Kandahar reflect the dilemma and difficulties that the American forces face today.
The concerns come despite the firepower and technology that the US has applied against an insurgent force, which has taken over more than 50 percent of the country. This is despite America having almost completely driven out the Taliban when it first invaded Afghanistan in late 2001.

The battle for Ghazni and indeed the effort to defeat the Taliban in remote areas of the country suggest that, notwithstanding the intelligence, technology and communications capabilities at its disposal, the US is losing the battle to secure the country.

If the Taliban occupies Ghazni by defeating Afghan forces, it effectively would cut off southern Afghanistan from the Kabul government, which would represent a significant development.

Italy Blocks New NGO Migrant Ship After Malta, Spain Refuse To Take

Italy on Monday denied entry to 141 migrants aboard an NGO transport ship, maintaining the country's hard-line stance against human trafficking into the country.

The migrants were picked up off the coast of Libya last week by The Aquarius, a rescue vessel run by Franco-German charity SOS Mediterranee and Doctors without Borders (MSF). Also aboard Aquarius is Reuters journalist Antonio Denti, who reports that both Malta and Spain have denied docking as well, with Spain telling the NGO in a statement "At the moment, Spain is not the safest port because it is not the nearest one."

“It can go where it wants, not in Italy!” said Italy's new Interior Minister, Matteo Salvini on Monday, suggesting that France, Germany, Britain or Malta as possible destinations.

“Stop human traffickers and their accomplices,” he added.

Omarosa’s Source Denies That ‘N-Word Tapes’ Exist

Omarosa is out with a tell-all book about the Trump administration that’s so explosive and unbelievable, even the usually-hysterical liberals in the media are giving pause before believing any of the claims.

Some claims have already been proven 100% to be made up. At one point in the book, Omarosa claims Trump called Kellyanne Conway’s half-Filipino husband a “f***ing goo-goo.” Conway’s husband, who is a liberal that hates Donald Trump, said that the allegation is “not credible, and ridiculous.”

Omarosa recorded countless conversations while employed by Trump, knowing from day one that her employment in the Trump White House would just be to further her own career. Only one recording has been made public, in which we hear John Kelly firing her. In addition to her own personal records, Omarosa that Trump used the n-word on “The Apprentice”, and there are tapes of it (which she claims to have).

Rinsing victims' mouths with holy water and making one boy pose as Jesus: Grand Jury reveals the depravity of 301 priests who sexually assaulted at least 1,000 children - which the Catholic church covered up

Hundreds of Roman Catholic priests in Pennsylvania have molested more than 1,000 children and senior church officials, including the now archbishop of Washington, D.C., systematically covered up the abuse.

A grand jury report released Tuesday reveals the horrific predatory behavior which included making young boys rinse their mouths with holy water to 'purify' them after they were forced to give oral sex to clergymen and the abuse of one boy who was made to pose naked as Jesus while other priests took pornographic pictures.

The priests would mark out which boys had been groomed for abuse by giving them gold crosses to wear as necklaces.

The 800-page report refers to more than 300 priests in six diocese where children were raped, plied with alcohol, or forced to perform for clergymen to produce pornographic material since the mid-1950s.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Interesting that this is getting more coverage in the foreign press than the US media!

Four injured as crazed Afghan asylum-seeker launches knife rampage in sleepy French town

An Afghan asylum-seeker has been arrested after injuring four people in a drunken and frenzied knife attack in a sleepy French town.

The incident began last night with the 19-year-old man, who is said to have psychological problems, lashing out at cars outside his home in Perigueux, in the country's south west.

He was seen 'kicking and banging a first vehicle with his feet and fists, then a second' and also 'rounding on female motorists', according to the head of the ambulance service for the area, Jean-Jacques Girard.

White House Economist Says We May Have to Kick China Out of WTO

The Trump administration stepped up its campaign against Chinese mercantilism Monday when the White House’s top economist raised the possibility of throwing China out of the World Trade Organization.

“China really needs to make up its mind,” Kevin Hassett, chairman of the White House Council of Economic Advisers, said on Fox Business News. “Do they want to be in the community of nations, do they want to be part of the WTO and just behave like everybody else, or don’t they?”

The remarks were particularly notable because they came from Hassett, who is known as a free trade advocate, rather than one of the Trump administration’s China trade hawks.

SYRIAN WAR REPORT – AUGUST 15, 2018: SYRIAN ARMY ADVANCES ON REMNANTS ISIS CELLS IN AL-SUWAYDA DESERT

On August 14, the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) released a statement providing a look at their operations in the area of Afrin against the Turkish Armed Forces (TAF) and the Turkish-backed Free Syrian Army (TFSA).

According to the statement, Abdul Razzaq al-Bakr, a TFSA field commander, died on August 8 after being wounded in a bomb explosion in the district of Mabata. On August 11, YPG cells set off a motorcycle-bomb on the road to the village of Kafr Jannah in the district of Shera. The bombing reportedly hit a joint patrol of the TAF and the TFSA killing one Turkish soldier and wounding another. “A number” of TFSA members were allegedly killed.

YPG cells have been carrying out attacks on the TAF and the TFSA constantly since the fall of the city of Afrin into Turkish hands on March 18. These attacks show significant gaps in security efforts employed by the TAF and the TFSA in the area.

75% Of Physicians in The World Refuse Chemotherapy for Themselves

On top of that, only 2 to 4% of all cancers even respond to chemotherapy or prove to be “life extending,” yet it is prescribed across the board for just about every kind of cancer.

Weed-killing chemical linked to cancer found in some children's breakfast foods

The study by the non-profit Environmental Working Group (EWG) discovered trace amounts of the most widely used herbicide in the country in oats, granolas and snack bars. Thirty-one out of 45 tested products had levels higher than what some scientists consider safe for children.

Recently, some scientists, doctors and activists around the world have worked to keep glyphosate out of crops due to concerns that it is a dangerous carcinogen.

Students who attend school in the district had their first day of school on Tuesday. Middle and high school students will attend school from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Tuesdays through Fridays and be off on Mondays, FOX 31 reported. Teachers will have to attend work one Monday a month, but only for half the day.

'No way was this felled by lightning': Engineers say 'wobbly' Genoa bridge that collapsed during a storm was a deathtrap with a 'huge flaw that maintenance missed'

Witnesses said the bridge was hit by lightning seconds before it collapsed and was seen 'wobbling', but engineers rubbished the idea that a bolt from above had anything to do with the disaster.

'It couldn't have been lightning. I don't see how that would be possible as it's reinforced concrete and it's certainly never happened before,' Agathoklis Giaralis, deputy director of the University of London's Civil Engineering Structures Research Centre, told MailOnline.

He said the bridge, which was completed in 1967, must have been flawed in its construction, likely in the foundations, or suffered from extensive corrosion in its metallic parts.

The U.N. Is Behind Alex Jones Censorship

This targeting by out and proud, liberal companies, like Facebook, Spotify, Apple, Google, Youtube, and Twitter should be viewed in no less terms than election meddling, seeing it attempts to destroy one of two major right leaning media outfits in the country.

The phenomena of corporations revealing publicly their “political stripes” when traditionally they always have stayed neutral is a very new development in terms of geopolitics. People are simply not sophisticated enough, and missing the larger agenda here.

I have written in the past on this topic of corporations being politized during the Obama administration seeing it all started under him. I believe this to be a U.N. plan that is working to homogenize secular ethics enforcement among multinational companies. These companies are being given favored international status because of the adherence to U.N. objectives.

Internet Censorship: Appeal to Reinstate “American Everyman”

Just a week or so after Spotify, Google, Apple and Facebook made the curiously synchronized move to kick Alex Jones and InfoWars off their platforms, and just days after Facebook shut down Venezuelan news network TeleSur’s facebook page (for the second time), the war on the free internet has opened up another front.

Small independent blogs are being shut down, seemingly without reason and certainly without explanation.

AmericanEveryman.com has been closed without notice or warning, according to the blog’s owner Scott Creighton. Allegedly for violating WordPress’ “terms of service”, although they have apparently been entirely vague about how.

Other such blogs – fellowshipofminds.com and jaysanalysis.com – have suffered the exact same fate, on the exact dame day. There is undeniably a push to silence dissent and purge it from the internet. There may well be dozens – even hundreds – of other examples.

US-Turkish alliance reaches the point of no return

The Turkish lira fell 22% on Friday before recovering to 17% on the backdrop of the Trump administration’s announcement to double the tariffs on imports of Turkish steel and aluminum.

The tariffs affect Turkish exports worth more than $1 billion in trade with the United States.

The US was the top destination for Turkish steel exports in 2017. Turkey came in sixth place among the countries the US imported steel from last year, while the share of Turkish steel was 7% of total US steel imports.

More to the point, President Trump brazenly hinted that this was a political decision and he tauntingly noted that he also kept an eye on the Turkish lira’s exchange rate.

Trump tweeted: “I have just authorized a doubling of Tariffs on Steel and Aluminum with respect to Turkey as their currency, the Turkish Lira, slides rapidly downward against our very strong Dollar! Aluminum will now be 20% and Steel 50%. Our relations with Turkey are not good at this time!”

Puerto Rico Officials Say All of Island Has Power Again

Power has been restored to all of Puerto Rico for the first time since Hurricane Maria struck nearly 11 months ago, officials said Tuesday.

The island's electric utility announced that crews working in the southern city of Ponce reconnected the last neighborhood that had been offline since the Sept. 20 storm knocked out the U.S. territory's power grid.

Ponce resident Charlie Colon Nazario told El Nuevo Dia that he was looking forward to no longer having to use a generator to light his house.

"No more lamps, no more candles, no more extension cords," he said as about two dozen power workers completed the connection to his home.
