THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!

"... the only way to fully comprehend U.S. policies toward the third world is to posit ..."the threat of a good example."Insurgencies in the third world do not challenge U.S. military security or even, ultimately, investments by U.S. corporations... What they represent is the possibility that emerging nations may demonstrate by example that the United States may not be the last word in democracy, freedom, and opportunity. That threat is much greater if weighed from the perspective of those who see it in their interest to preserve unchanged the present U.S. economic and political order." -- Frances Moore Lappe', Rachel Shuman, and Kevin Danaher, authors

800 million Twitpic photos to vanish from the web Saturday

Some of Twitter’s most defining moments have been shared through images; from the U.S. Airways plane that landed on the Hudson River, to the magnitude 7.0 earthquake that crippled the Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince.

But many of those images will disappear from Twitter Saturday after Twitpic – once one of the most used image sharing services for Twitter – shuts down for good.

Google VP's 135,908-foot leap breaks world record for highest free-fall parachute jump

The last time someone made a leap like this, the entire world knew about it; Felix Baumgartner's thrilling jump from the edge of space was streamed live over the internet as it happened. Baumgartner became the first person to break the sound barrier in free fall. His dive was from an altitude of 127,852 feet, which at the time also set a new record for highest free-fall parachute jump — a record that Eustace surpassed today.

Eustace apparently declined Google's offers to help, seeking to avoid the spectacle and frenzy that surrounded Baumgartner's jump. Instead, he worked quietly for three years on the self-funded project — outside of Google's halls — to make his mark and shatter the altitude record by falling from the stratosphere.

Despite Ebola Fears, DHS Unprepared for a Pandemic After Spending a Bundle, Warns Inspector General

Despite years of warning, preparation, and spending, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is unprepared for the sort of pandemic that has been occupying Americans' minds of late, DHS Inspector General John Roth told the House Oversight Committee today. The feds have stockpiled plenty of gear and supplies, but they don't know if it's the right gear, in the right quantities, or whether it's in usable condition, because there's no game plan to speak of.

The Document Dump that Could Kill Hillary’s Presidential Hopes

Although Mrs. Clinton is still embroiled in scandal, the overwhelming amount of information that has been released by the National Archives could strike a serious blow to her chances of becoming president.

A good deal of America doesn’t believe Hillary Clinton when she declares that she and the rest of the administration did everything they could to prevent the attacks on Benghazi from taking place.

But while her current behavior is classless and abusive, voters will hopefully see that the pattern of behavior is nothing new as scandal from years gone by will be rearing its ugly head.

That’s because the National Archives will be releasing over 10,000 pages worth of documents covering the former first lady’s time in office.

However on Thursday, a public-interest group renowned for uncovering government corruption and criminal activity released Department of Justice (DOJ) documents that revealed that not only did Holder lie under oath before a congressional panel, but that the cover-up leads right into the Oval Office.

90 percent of Americans are poorer today than in 1987

The American Dream is slipping further away from the vast majority of Americans than it has in a quarter century. Now 90 percent of US households are poorer than they were in 1987, according to both a new study and the head of the Federal Reserve.

“The new, harsh reality is that the bottom 90 percent of households are poorer today than they were in 1987,” Matt O’Brien wrote in the Washington Post Wonkblog, citing data from a new National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) paper on U.S. wealth inequality, which he says is based on tax data. “It's been a lost 25 years for the bottom 90 percent, but a lost 15 for the next 9 percent, too. That's right: altogether, the bottom 99 percent are worth less today than they were in 1998.”

Putin: Russia’s plans to solve Ukraine’s debt problem rejected

President Putin said Moscow offered numerous solutions to Ukrainian gas debts which have been rejected by Kiev and the IMF as complicated and difficult procedures. He expects a solution to be found soon otherwise it could lead to a crisis.

Talking about Russian gas delivery to Europe at the Valdai international discussion club meeting on Friday the President explained all the concessions Russia has made and is ready to make to see gas flow into Ukraine and urged the Western partners to co-operate.

Ukraine’s debt to Russia is 5.6 billion dollars for gas delivery and 3 billion dollars of credit. Russia has revised the sum of the debt and now demands only 4.5 billion. In January Ukraine is to receive a tranche from the IMF. The final sum will be reconsidered by the IMF after October, 26.

Putin said Russia suggested several variants to Kiev and IMF of how the debt should be covered.

Russia calls Europe's bluff on Ukraine gas deal

Russia, Ukraine and the European Union failed late Tuesday to strike a deal that would guarantee Russian gas supplies through the coming winter, after the E.U. refused a request by the Russian side to guarantee full and proper payment by Ukraine.

The deadlock revives the risk that Russia may cut off gas deliveries to parts of Europe this winter, as part of a wider strategy to assert its influence in Ukraine. That would further aggravate the economic slowdown that has hit both countries since the Ukrainian crisis erupted.

Suspicious Canada Shooting Triggers 'Minority Report' Pre-Crime Plans for 'Preventive Arrests'

On Wednesday, just two days after a "radicalized" man ran over two Canadian soldiers in a mall parking lot, a gunmen opened fire at Canada's National War Memorial and at Parliament Hill, killing one soldier and wounding a security guard. He was later killed by an armed guard.

Within less than two days, rhetoric has risen unusually high for Canada in the wake of what have been called "terror attacks," bringing terrorism home along with fresh demands for new police powers.

This time, the new powers would include 'preventive arrests,' potentially taking the country down the slippery slope of guilty-until-proven innocent authoritarian policies.

Snowden's Motivation: What the Internet Was Like Before It Was Being Watched, and How We Can Get There Again

Laura Poitras’ riveting new documentary about mass surveillance gives an intimate look into the motivations that guided Edward Snowden, who sacrificed his career and risked his freedom to expose mass surveillance by the NSA. CITIZENFOUR, which debuts on Friday, has many scenes that explore the depths of government surveillance gone awry and the high-tension unfolding of Snowden’s rendezvous with journalists in Hong Kong. One of the most powerful scenes in the film comes when Snowden discusses his motivation for the disclosures and points to his fundamental belief in the power and promise of the Internet:

US threatens Turkish and Kurdish middlemen in ISIS oil bonanza

A US treasury official has warned Turkish and Kurdish middlemen against trading in Islamic State (ISIS) oil by threatening to slap US sanctions on those caught dealing with the extremist group.

US officials have discreetly criticised the illicit Turkish and Kurdish trade in oil from ISIS, which is also known as IS and ISIL, but comments from US Treasury Undersecretary David Cohen in Washington on Thursday, were the clearest warning so far.

“Last month, ISIL was selling oil at substantially discounted prices to a variety of middlemen, including some from Turkey,” Cohen said. “It also appears that some of the oil emanating from territory where ISIL operates has been sold to Kurds in Iraq, and then resold into Turkey.”

Just months after Edward Snowden unmasked the National Security Agency's massive domestic spying program, The New York Times broke news of the Hemisphere Project, which pairs experts from telecommunications giant AT&T with federal and local anti-drug officials, including DEA agents. It gives law enforcement officials access to "every call that passes through an AT&T switch -- not just those made by AT&T customers -- and includes calls dating back 26 years," according to the Times report. That's around 4 billion call records every day, each logged with information on the location of callers. The official government slideshow describing the program suggested it had been helpful in tracking drug dealers who frequently change phones, or use disposable "burner" phones.

"We won't pay," furious Cameron tells EU over surprise budget

In a vivid display of public fury at European Union technocrats, British Prime Minister David Cameron refused to pay a surprise 2.1-billion-euro bill on Friday as EU leaders ordered an urgent review of how the budget figures were arrived at.

As Eurosceptics at home leapt on news that the EU executive -- branded a "thirsty vampire" -- had demanded a sum worth about one seventh of London's annual payment after a major statistical review of national incomes, Cameron demanded action from fellow leaders at a summit calling the bill "completely unacceptable".

He found some sympathy - a visibly furious Cameron told a news conference that Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi had also lambasted "bureaucrats without a heart", who made it harder to persuade citizens of the Union's value.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If England refuses to pay, the whole pyramid will collapse, triggering an estimated $95 trillion in credit default swaps sold my Wall Street, for which they do not have the cash to pay.

The United States is reportedly trying to fend off an attempt out of Switzerland to change a multi-national nuclear safety agreement in the wake of the 2011 Fukushima disaster in Japan.

But while Reuters says the Swiss-led initiative is tentatively being backed by other European countries, the newswire alleges that energy officials in the US, Russia and Canada are all opposed to the measure, which would likely increase industry costs.

BEX ALERT - Colloidal silver and other Ebola scams: 'Fear opens wallets and closes minds'

Of course, silver nanoparticles are not highly effective against Ebola – they are not effective at all. Nor is homeopathic rattesnake venom, or oil extracted from sandalwood or cinnamon bark. Nor is vitamin C, in any way other than being simply part of a healthy diet.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The corporate media launches a smear campaign to keep people giving their money to the giant pharmaceutical corporations which spend much of that money buying advertisements in that same corporate media. The fact is that there is a great deal is supporting research into nano-silver as an anti-bacterial and anti-viral going back to the days of the Black Death right up to US Government research which states that nano-silver is effective against hemorrhagic fevers, including Ebola! But nano-silver cannot be patented and used to extort obscene profits from the public, so it is not only ignored but attacked by the obedient corporate media! This is the same government and corporate media that told you Saddam had nuclear weapons. This is the same government and corporate media that told you back in 2000 that human-caused global warming meant there would be no more snow and ice in winter! This is the same government and corporate media that told you about torpedoes in the Gulf of Tonkin, Spanish mines in Havana Harbor, and golly gee whiz trust us there were no weapons on board the Lusitania.

...

Cameron himself tweeted that he was “angry at the sudden presentation of a €2 billion bill,” adding: “It’s an appalling way to behave and I won’t be paying it on Dec. 1.”

In one sense, at least, they are right. It is unfair, because one thing is for sure: whatever happens, it won’t be U.K.’s coke dealers and hookers who end up paying that €2.1 billion.

Last month, when, with great amusement, we reported that "New Home Sales Explode Higher Thanks To... Record High Average New Home Prices?", we mocked the latest batch of bullshit data released by the US department of truth as follows:

New Home Sales rose a magnificent (seasonally-adjusted annualized rate) 18% in August - the biggest monthly rise since January 1992 albeit with a 16.3 90% confidence interval, meaning the final number may well be +1.7%. At 504k, new home sales are back at May 2008 levels (though obviously massively below the 1.4 million homes sold at the peak in 2005). As a reminder, May's 504K new home sales print was later revised later to 458K. But even more stunning, new home sales in The West rose a mind-numbing 50% in August (and up 84.4% YoY - nearly double).

Syrian army recaptures town in western Syria: state TV

The recapture of Morek, 30km (19 miles) north of Hama, is part of the military's campaign to shore up territory in the west of the country stretching north from Damascus as U.S.-led forces bomb Islamist militants elsewhere in Syria.

The army "took full control of the town of Morek in the northern Hama countryside and killed a number of terrorists and mercenaries," state television said in a news alert, citing a military source.

People Are Trying to Sell Cinnamon Bark as an Ebola Cure

Marion Nestle reports that several supplement manufacturers are selling vitamins that promise to prevent or treat Ebola. The claims caught the attention of the FDA, which has issued warning letters to three of the manufacturers: Natural Solutions Foundation, Young Living, and DoTERRA International LLC. The agency lists specific claims it finds worrisome; for example, on a Young Living consultant's website, "Ebola Virus can not live in the presence of cinnamon bark."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Despite the WHO authorizing the use of unproven treatments to deal with the Ebola the reality is that only treatments from the giant pharmaceutical corporations are being allowed. The FDA, still looking at Ebola from the economic point of view, is coming down hard on anyone offering treatments from which the pharmaceutical corporations cannot make the profit.

We know the FDA is blocking use of even mention of nano silver products wherever they can, despite the fact that both Nigeria and Sierra Leone have told the US Government to shove their regulations (possibly in response to the growing awareness that the US Government may have triggered the Ebola outbreak in Africa with a botched vaccine trial) and are treating Ebola patients with nano-silver and reporting positive results.
That being said, it was observed during the 1918 flu pandemic (also triggered by a botched vaccine trial) that workers at a factory that processed cinnamon for bakeries did not come down with the flu. This triggered widespread use of cinnamon, usually mixed with milk, which did in fact lower the fever and reduce symptoms of those already infected with the flu. Most naturally occurring antibiotics are broad spectrum, which means they are effective against a wide variety of infections, whereas modern pharmaceutical antibiotics are designed to be effective against specific infectious agents and are usually useless against others.

So do your own research and make your own choices.

After all, are you willing to bet your life the government, media, and pharmaceutical corporations are telling you the truth?

FBI Whistleblower: “U.S Is Reviving Terror Scare With ISIS To Promote The Terror War Industry”

So called “terrorist” attacks have been taking place on the planet for decades, the most memorable one being 9/11. Almost 15 years later, that one “terrorist” attack has served as a massive awakening tool for the human race, allowing us to see through the veil that’s been blinding the masses for so long, but we still have a long way to go.

CANADA: Conservatives mulling legislation making it illegal to condone terrorist acts online

OTTAWA, Canada (National Post) There is frustration in government, and among law enforcement agencies, that the authorities can’t detain or arrest people who express sympathy for atrocities committed overseas and who may pose a threat to public safety, one Conservative MP said. “Do we need new offences? If so which?”

Sources suggest the government is likely to bring in new hate speech legislation that would make it illegal to claim terrorist acts are justified online.
...

The Conservative MP said the new legislation was crafted before this week’s events and is not “trauma tainted.”
_____________________________________________________________________________
Wow! That was quick! I wonder if this legislation will also apply to those who defend israel's war crimes.

Fortunately, the relationship between the Harper regime and the Supreme Court of Canada is so acrimonious that this legislation, if passed, will never see the light of day.

FTDI admits to bricking innocent users' chips in silent update

Hardware hackers and security researchers are furious at chip maker FTDI for issuing a silent update that bricks cloned FTDI FT232 [USB to UART] chips.

The chip is extremely common on a wide variety of devices and there is no way of knowing at this time which devices have cloned chips -- and the tainted supply chain could hit anyone.

FTDI appears to have used a recent Windows update to deliver the driver update to brick all cloned FTDI FT232s.

FTDI's surprise new driver reprograms the USB PID to 0, killing the chips instantly.

The hardware hackers at Hack A Day first reported that a recent driver update deployed over Windows Update is bricking cloned versions of the very common FTDI FT232 [USB to UART] chip.

In response to increasing anger and criticism from security researchers on Twitter, FTDI admitted using the remote kill switch and is adamant that this move is necessary to fight counterfeiting.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Oh yes, let's punish the end user who may not even know his product has a counterfeit chip by killing his hardware!

Does FTDI not understand that the counterfeiters will go on selling their chips anyway not caring if they eventually fail? Look at the flood of fake 128G SD cards hitting the market. These are actually 8G chips reprogrammed to identify themselves as 128G to the computer. Every time a particular brand is identified as phony, the counterfeiters simply change their company name, change the packaging, and go right on selling their products, not caring that they will not actually work. FTDI's stunt will harm a lot of innocent end users and will not stop the counterfeiters. It won't even slow them down. Someone needs to be fired for this mistake!

House oversight panel examines response to Ebola crisis

The chairman of a House oversight panel on Friday slammed President Obama's choice of Ron Klain as his new Ebola czar.

"Sadly, in my opinion, (Klain's appointment) shows the administration has on one hand recognized the missteps (in handling the Ebola crisis), but on the other hand is not prepared to put a known leader or a medical professional in place," said Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is pure political grandstanding ahead of the elections. Congress is trying to act like they are in control of this situation, and they are not. The virus is.

Congress, like the Obama administration and CDC, are playing catch-up.

As for an Ebola czar, Obama picked a spin-doctor to keep the public calm, keep them going to the shopping malls, keep them focused on the wars, and make sure they showed up to the voting booths next month. Personally I think Dr. Ron Paul would have been the ideal choice, being both a medical doctor himself and knowing how DC works. Klain didn't even show up for today's hearing!

Obama claims executive privilege over 15,000 Fast and Furious docs

The Obama administration is claiming executive privilege over more than 15,000 documents related to Operation Fast and Furious, including correspondence between Attorney General Eric Holder and his wife, according to records received Wednesday night by the watchdog group Judicial Watch.

Last month, a federal judge ordered the Justice Department to release to Judicial Watch the list of documents, known as a “Vaughn index,” that it is withholding from the public, calling its requests for further delays “unconvincing.”

The 1,307-page Vaughn index lists 15,662 documents related to Operation Fast and Furious that the Obama administration is asserting executive privilege over—the first time that full list and description of the records has been released.

Basically Obama just told Judicial Watch, the courts, and the American people to fuck off!

CA, which is notorious for their revenue-agent officers aggressively ticketing the city's residents, is facing harsh criticism after yet another child died in a crosswalk near an elementary school. Upland stopped paying for crossing guards in 2009. The city, which has been successfully sued for violating the civil rights of 2nd Amendment advocates and even had one of their police officers ruled officially "incompetent to testify" in CA Superior Court of Appeals, has now changed their tune and claimed that "in the wake of the death the city would work closely with the school district to re-evaluate pedestrian safety."

FLASHBACK - U.S. is Responsible for the Ebola Outbreak in West Africa: Liberian Scientist

Is it possible that the United States Department of Defense (DOD) and other Western countries are directly responsible for infecting Africans with the Ebola virus? Dr. Broderick claims that the U.S. government has a research laboratory located in a town called Kenema in Sierra Leone that studies what he calls “viral fever bioterrorism”, It is also the town where he acknowledges that is the “epicentre of the Ebola outbreak in West Africa.” Is it a fact? Is Dr. Broderick a conspiracy theorist? He says that “there is urgent need for affirmative action in protecting the less affluent of poorer countries, especially African citizens, whose countries are not as scientifically and industrially endowed as the United States and most Western countries, sources of most viral or bacterial GMOs that are strategically designed as biological weapons.” He also asks an important question when he says “It is most disturbing that the U.

The Turin Shroud is just a medieval prop that was used in Easter plays, claims expert

It’s a debate that divides people the world over: Is the Turin shroud a genuine relic or just an elaborate fake?

According to one expert the answer is very much the latter, and he is baffled that no one has noticed irregularities before.

He says that aside from radiocarbon dating in 1988 showing it originates from the 14th century, there is evidence that it has been altered over time and that it was used specifically during medieval Easter rituals.

Looking through historical texts, he found no mention of the shroud before 1355 - somewhat odd for an item of such apparent religious significance.

BEX ALERT - Can You Get Ebola From a Bowling Ball?

Although the surface of a shared bowling ball is a likely place to find germs — and some people avoid bowling for this very reason — it is extremely unlikely that Ebola could be passed that way. There is no evidence that it has been passed, as colds or flu sometimes are, by touching surfaces that someone else touched after sneezing into their hand. Ebola is normally passed through contact with blood, vomit or diarrhea.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I guess the NY Times gets a lot of ad revenues from the city's bowling lanes. But the reality is that while CDC is still pushing the "direct contact only" meme, CDC actually found that Ebola can survive on contaminated surfaces for days ... including the surface and finger holes of bowling balls. The holes especially, devoid of strong light, are perfect places for Ebola to hide.

I am not surprised that comments were not allowed on this article.

The Times Herald, the Tribune ’s Washington, D.C., ally, carried a similarly fevered banner. In both papers Chesly Manly, the Tribune's Washington correspondent, revealed what President Franklin D. Roosevelt had repeatedly denied: that he was planning to lead the United States into war against Germany.

Since Washington and Brussels shunted the geopolitical tracks in the first place to create the financial train wreck that is now manifestly the Ukraine, you would think that there might be a sense of obligation on Western governments to salvage the mess. Not a bit of it, it seems.

Furthermore, the train wreck is careening dangerously into the Russian economy. But still, the Western governments adopt an attitude that Moscow must pay for the damages.

Flashback: Ebola is 'biggest health problem facing our world in a generation', warns David Cameron

Media paying attention to poll showing public's distaste for privatization

Newspaper columnists and radio talk show hosts are paying attention to fresh polling data that shows just how uneasy Canadians are about the concept of privatization.

82 per cent agreed that “when private companies get contracts to provide government programs, the public loses control over services people depend on.”
