Elizabeth Warren: "If Scott Walker sees 100,000 teachers & firefighters as his enemies, maybe it's time we take a closer look at his friends.”

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) criticized Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) for insinuating that his fight with unions prepared him to be commander in chief.

Warren, who is closely aligned with progressive union groups, ripped Walker in a tweet Saturdayfor what some saw as a comparison between union members and the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria:

"If Scott Walker sees 100,000 teachers & firefighters as his enemies, maybe it's time we take a closer look at his friends.”

Whaa? Now there's a second bright light on dwarf planet Ceres

Could dwarf planet Ceres be watching us watching it? As NASA's Dawn spacecraft approaches the largest object in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter, it seems to be lighting up. Not long after images of Ceres revealed a strange reflective spot, another dimmer one came into view in the latest NASA images, giving the appearance of a spooky pair of eyes peering back at Dawn.

So what's going on here? Metallic mineral deposits? The local ice skating rink on an improbably shiny frozen lake in the bottom of a huge crater? A giant Ceresian mirror or solar farm?

The answer is...we have no idea.

NASA Mars Curiosity Rover Ends the Debate of Methane on the Red Planet

New findings from the Mars Curiosity rover may hint that there may have been life in the planet's distant past. The tunable laser spectrometer in the Sample Analysis at Mars (SAM) instrument has detected an episodic increase in the concentration of methane in Mars' atmosphere.

Scientists have long debated whether or not methane was present in Mars' atmosphere. While it was first detected with telescopes from Earth, orbiting satellites gave contradicting results. Now this new data puts a lid on the debate.

Methane can actually be the product of biological activity. Practically all of the existing methane in Earth's atmosphere originates from living organisms. This could mean that the methane on Mars may have similar origins.

More Bad News for Alarmists: Polar Bears Doing Just Fine

Today, as I’m sure you know, is International Polar Bear Day. And I’m afraid the news is bad…

…Bad news, that is, for all those environmentalists from David Attenborough downwards who have spent the last few years assiduously bigging up the polar bear as a “threatened species.”

As I’ve argued before, any species which has experienced a five-fold increase in its population in the last fifty years (in the 60s there were about 5,000 of them; now there are around 25,000), sounds less like a rare and endangered creature and more like a verminous, out-of-control menace in sore need of culling.

TONGUE IN CHEEK MESSAGE TO ALL JEWS EVERYWHERE

Our organization, All Jews Everywhere, wishes to voice our appreciation to Benjamin Netanyahu, Prime Minister of All Jews Everywhere, Inc., for speaking on behalf of the Chosen People before the Israel Funding Association (sometimes referred to as the U.S. Congress).

While we applaud Mr. Netanyahu’s invitation to members of Congress to emigrate to Israel, we advise him to drop that “coming home” theme. Bibi, Israel needs our Congress here to keep that spigot open and the funding flowing.

Many have suggested that Israel should finally relent and apply officially for U.S. statehood. However, we reject that notion, since Israel would then only be represented by two senators, as opposed to 100.

The circus: How British intelligence primed both sides of the ‘terror war’

Every time there’s a terrorist attack that makes national headlines, the same talking heads seem to pop up like an obscene game of “whack-a-mole”. Often they appear one after the other across the media circuit, bobbing from celebrity television pundit to erudite newspaper outlet.

A few years ago, BBC Newsnight proudly hosted a “debate” between Maajid Nawaz, director of counter-extremism think-tank, the Quilliam Foundation, and Anjem Choudary, head of the banned Islamist group formerly known as al-Muhajiroun, which has, since its proscription, repeatedly reincarnated itself. One of its more well-known recent incarnations was "Islam4UK".

North Carolina Legalizes Prostitutes For Politicians

North Carolina’s State Ethics Committee has just opened up a major problem for their state — they just made it legal for lobbying firms to purchase prostitutes to service politicians. The Committee’s determination that sex had no value and that sex between a lobbyist and politician was nothing to report or in any way questionable means that a major loophole has opened up for lobbying firms. Now lobbying firms can hire people with the explicit goal to seduce and fornicate with politicians in order to garner favor.

IMF bent its rules to hobble Greece with unsustainable debt

As Greece wrangles with its creditors for a more sustainable solution to its debt problems, International Monetary Fund Managing Director Christine Lagarde has been firm in insisting that the new government in Athens honor the country’s previous commitments. The former French finance minister threw cold water this week on the tentative accord between Greece and the European Union, warning that many of Athens’s pledges were vague and “not conveying clear assurances that the government intends to undertake the reforms envisioned.”

Cocaine Wars: US Troops in Peru's Coca Zone

It has been making practically no headlines outside Peru, and hardly any within, but a force of US Marines has apparently been mobilized to the Andean country—specifically to the conflicted coca-growing jungle region known as the VRAE, or Valley of the Apurímac and Ene Rivers. Peru's Congress quietly approved the deployment in a resolution Jan. 29. The first contingent of 58 soldiers arrived on Feb. 1, and a second of 67 troops on Feb. 15. They are to stay for a year on what is being called a "training" mission. A much larger contingent is to arrive in September, a total to 3,200 Marines, for a six-day joint exercise with Peruvian forces. (Defensa.com, Feb. 19)

REMEMBERING WHAT ISRAEL WANTS US TO FORGET

Today, synagogues throughout the world commemorated Shabbat Zachor (Sabbath of Remembrance). On this day the first known enemy of the Hebrews, Amalek, is remembered. On this day as well the combined Hate Lists of the ADL and the Wiesenthal Centre are dug out to confirm that Amalek still lives today.
*
Yes, Amalek still lives. There is no doubt in my mind about that, BUT NOT ON THOSE LISTS. Amalek lives right here in Israel. He is remembered every day of the year by Palestinians, but especially this week, the 21st anniversary of the massacre in Hebron by a crazed American zionist.

Shadow Government: Insider Oligarchs Derail Maidan Revolution

In the midst of war and heightened nationalism in Ukraine, many demonstrators who participated in protests at Maidan Square just one year ago are gripped with a profound sense of shock and wonder what has happened to their country. The crowd called for a thorough overhaul of elite corruption, cronyism and the incestuous business-government revolving door. Yet, if anything, recent developments have only served to bolster tycoons.

Rehab, Jeb Bush-Style

The Republican front-runner seems to be addicted to the warmongers and regime-changers who inspired his brother’s foreign policy. Which should drive a sane person to drink.

If you want to know why bad decisions on foreign policy tend to get repeated, perhaps a good place to start is reliance on the same people who made those bad choices in the past to get it right the second time.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF the tickets are Jeb vs/Hillary, the American people have absolutely no real choice in the 016 election.

It is simply a question of which candidate corporations think they will get the most mileage out of supporting, period, end of discussion.

They are both dyed in the wool interventionists and war mongers, not at all interested in the welfare of America's citizens, but eagerly doing the bidding to those corporations which fund them.

With either candidate, expect more wars, and an ever deepening downturn in the money Americans can expect, reasonably, to earn. But hey, those corporations which support these candidates will be going like gangbusters!!

The Forgotten War – Understanding The Incredible Debacle Left Behind By NATO In Libya

In retrospect, Obama’s intervention in Libya was an abject failure, judged even by its own standards. Libya has not only failed to evolve into a democracy; it has devolved into a failed state. Violent deaths and other human rights abuses have increased severalfold. Rather than helping the United States combat terrorism, as Qaddafi did during his last decade in power, Libya now serves as a safe haven for militias affiliated with both al Qaeda and the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS). The Libya intervention has harmed other U.S. interests as well: undermining nuclear nonproliferation, chilling Russian cooperation at the UN, and fueling Syria’s civil war.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The only possible answer for NATO is a rapid re-invasion of the country, which is going to look both awkward and idiotic to the rest of the world.

It is very clear that the Libyan people have had enough of the puppet government which was thrust upon them, after Qaddafi's assassination, and want their country back.

Martyrdom on demand: if not of use alive, perhaps of use dead?

FLASHBACK - Al Aqsa Massacre part 2

On Monday, October 8 1990, 17 people were killed and over three hundred wounded at the Al Aqsa Mosque in East Jerusalem. This is only the second part, about 14 minutes into the event.
One sees Palestinians running for their lives, ambulances shot at and tear gassed, medical staff seeking safety behind the mosque, one nurse was shot and wounded (not seen in this video).
One hears the Waqf Al Aqsa Mosque officials pleading with the Israeli Police and Border Police to STOP shooting and killing and telling the children to STOP throwing stones and return to the mosque amidst intense Israeli automatic gunfire for 29 minutes. The Waqf Al Aqsa officials were falsely arrested for incitement and released from Israeli detention based on the evidence found in this video.

Russia: FIRST SHOTS of Boris Nemtsov shooting aftermath

Russian politician Boris Nemtsov was shot and killed close to the Kremlin in Moscow, Friday. Reports indicate that a white vehicle pulled up close to Nemtsov before an unknown assailant unleashed a series of shots, hitting the former politician several times.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Another reason to doubt the "Blame Putin" chorus we are already seeing in the corporate media is the manner in which the shooting took place, in public, in front of the girlfriend, to generate the maximum publicity. If Putin had really wanted to kill this guy, it would have been a "suicide" in private or a small plane crash, the way the US Government handles assassinations.

Uninsured Ex-Sheriff Who Fought O-care Struggles To Pay Medical Bills

Former Arizona county sheriff Richard Mack, a fierce opponent of Obamacare and a leader in the "constitutional sheriff" movement, is struggling to pay his medical bills after he and his wife each faced serious illnesses. The former sheriff and his wife do not have health insurance and started a GoFundMe campaign to solicit donations from family and friends to cover the costs of their medical care.

"Because they are self-employed, they have no medical insurance and are in desperate need of our assistance," reads a note on Mack's personal website.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Claire and I have Obamacare-compliant health insurance, and were shocked by bills from my illness a year ago our Obamacare-compliant policy says they do not have to pay! Those Obamacare policies with their sky-high deductibles are not worth the paper they are printed on!

FLASHBACK - Lemming Suicide MythDisney Film Faked Bogus Behavior

In 1958 Walt Disney produced "White Wilderness," part of the studio's "True Life Adventure" series. "White Wilderness" featured a segment on lemmings, detailing their strange compulsion to commit mass suicide.

According to a 1983 investigation by Canadian Broadcasting Corporation producer Brian Vallee, the lemming scenes were faked. The lemmings supposedly committing mass suicide by leaping into the ocean were actually thrown off a cliff by the Disney filmmakers. The epic "lemming migration" was staged using careful editing, tight camera angles and a few dozen lemmings running on snow covered lazy-Susan style turntable.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I actually learned of this back when I worked in Hollywood. While working on a project involving a lion, we bought copies of "True Life Adventure" raw footage from the Disney archives. Having grown up watching the edited finals, I was rather appalled at how the animals were actually being treated to get the shots the script called for!

FLASHBACK - Cutting Bush Down to Size: How Israel Gets Its Way in the U.S. Media

"I'll tell you why we didn't put those calls through," a disembodied voice boomed into the studio. A moment later the person I had seen answering phones in the control room stepped into the room. A hearty smiling man, he introduced himself as the station's owner.

"Those calls," he explained, "were from my biggest advertisers. They all called, one after another, threatening to pull all their advertising if I didn't take you off the air."

I looked around at the spotless equipment in the brand-new building. "You should have done it," I said. "I don't want you to lose your station on my account."

He threw back his head and laughed. "Don't worry about me," he said. "We have one of the oldest Jewish communities in the United States and it does a lot of good things here, but most of the big advertisers who just called live in one suburb and they sometimes lose touch with the rest of the city.

When it comes to the Ukraine proxy war, which started in earnest just about one year ago with the violent coup that overthrew then president Yanukovich and replaced him with a local pro-US oligarch, there has been no ambiguity who the key actors were: on the left, we had the west, personified by the US, the European Union, and NATO in general; while on the right we had Russia. In fact, if there was any confusion, it was about the role of that other "elephant in the room" - China.

It's an age-old, tragic relationship. The mistress and her gadfly, selfish male-benefactor, who is really not a benefactor, but instead is more like her jealous, despotic jailer. Oh yeah, sure, he festoons her with cute presents now and again, chocolates, stockings, perfumes and the like. He also professes ardent devotion and vows to protect her. In return she gratifies his basic needs. But when it gets down to it, the mistress is dispensable, a plaything that is brutally discarded when he is done.

White House says Netanyahu offers no alternative but military action (and Liz Warren won’t say if she’s attending speech)

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is offering no alternative but the “military option” against Iran, the White House press secretary said this afternoon. Josh Earnest said that Netanyahu has “not presented an alternative” to the negotiations that the U.S. is undertaking, and that military action won’t work. It will only “steel” Iran’s resolve to develop nuclear weapons and end an inspections regime that the Iranians have accepted as well as break up the international coalition that the U.S. has put together to talk to Iran.

10 Reasons Washington Has War Fever

As Clausewitz so clearly stated, "War is merely the continuation of policy by other means," and our leadership and the special interests behind them want to continue the policies and actions that have created so much wealth and world power for them. Think for a moment about the threats they are facing at home and abroad and how a major but limited war could solve or postpone most of their problems and threats to their powerbase.

There are two problems with the war solution. First, while it may be in their best interest to guarantee their survival, war would be bad for our military, soldiers and civilians as well as our economy, private wealth and remaining liberties. Second, there is no guarantee that a real war once started would remain limited in nature. I think both world wars are historical examples of how plans for limited wars can turn into major wars killing tens of millions and all of this for power hungry politicians and vested economic interests

Ending homelessness SAVES money; monetary reform and public banks should fund this now

*hyperlinks/video live at source*

Utah has reduced homelessness by 78%, and has targeted ending homelessness this year.

The US federal agency, US Interagency Council on Homelessness states all 50+ economic cost-benefit studies conclude it costs less to provide homeless Americans with shelter, food, health care, and job training than doing nothing at all.

The greatest savings come from decreased emergency room visits, police calls, and court time. What isn’t counted, and significant, is the increase of business in areas where the homeless are vagrants.  In addition, these studies show most participants find jobs and leave these programs.

A 2014 study in Florida reports taxpayers save over $20,000 per homeless person when they are provided basic services rather than languishing on the streets. An academic paper from two University of Pennsylvania professors document it’s more cost-effective to end homelessness than endure it.

Why would GOP candidate for Missouri governor kill himself?

Missouri's auditor, who fatally shot himself in an apparent suicide, had vowed to take down the state's most powerful politicians and donors, including his fellow Republicans, when he launched an anti-corruption campaign for governor last month.

But in his final days, Tom Schweich described having knots in his stomach over what he thought was an anti-Semitic whisper campaign by a GOP consultant who now runs the state party.

His intensity had served him well in the past - he was proud of exposing corruption in his four years as auditor. But his tendency to fixate on issues also sometimes made it hard for him to get over political attacks, say some of his advisers and colleagues.

Schweich left behind a wife and two children - and a seemingly rising political career - when he died Thursday at age 54.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I do not buy the suicide story one bit.

Netanyahu Invites Arab Diplomats to His Big Speech—and Gets Rejected

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is refusing to meet with a group of ardently pro-Israel Democratic senators next week in Washington, but he very much wants to see the faces of Arab ambassadors in the audience during his controversial address to Congress.

Netanyahu's ambassador to the United States, Ron Dermer, has tried, without success, to recruit Arab ambassadors to come to his boss’s speech, e-mailing them personally to plead for their attendance. Dermer, who is not a trained diplomat, is the man who helped engineer the invitation to Netanyahu to speak to Congress in opposition to President Obama’s (so far theoretical) Iran nuclear deal.

Democrats should boycott Netanyahu’s speech

Next Tuesday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will address a joint session of Congress. It’s an event cooked up by House Speaker John Boehner and Netanyahu to undermine President Obama’s effort to negotiate an agreement with Iran to limit its nuclear ambition.

Democrats owe it to their party and their president to boycott the speech.

Schweich had arranged a meeting with journalists to discuss what the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports was his belief that Republican rivals were spreading rumors that he was Jewish.

Four more victims of incarceration at Chicago’s Guantanamo Bay style secret detention/torture center, known as Homan Square, have come out and spoken to The Guardian about their experience being essentially treated like cattle.

They are four black males, Brock Terry, Kory Wright, Deandre Hutcherson and David Smith. Three of them were held in 2006, and one in 2011.

They were kicked in the genitals while helpless and bound, put in ‘kennels for humans’, and they heard the bloodcurdling screams of other helpless victims while they thought they would never see the light of day again...

Jewish Defense League thugs found guilty of assault at Palestine event in London

Two Jewish Defence League UK thugs were today found guilty of assault after they attacked a panel at a Palestine literary festival in September.

Roberta Moore was convicted of two counts of assault and one count of possession of an offensive weapon. Her accomplice Robert De Jonge was convicted of assault.

Both initially pleaded not guilty to all charges, but De Jonge on Thursday changed his plea to guilty for reason of recklessness.

De Jonge argued he had only meant to cause a “distraction” when he rushed the stage and assaulted Andy Simons, the chairperson of the panel and an organizer with Haringey Justice for Palestinians.

But district judge Julia Newton ruled today that De Jonge had acted with full intent to cause injury.

Cutting federal spending should be Congress’s top priority: TWT/CPAC poll

Conservatives say reducing federal spending should be the Republican-led Congress’s top priority this session, beating out confrontations with President Obama over his immigration executive actions, Obamacare, and the Keystone XL pipeline, according to The Washington Times/CPAC flash poll at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference.

Thirty-eight percent of the 141 respondents picked reducing federal spending at the top priority, followed by rolling back Mr. Obama’s amnesty plan at 26 percent.

What the BRICS plus Germany are really up to?

Winston Churchill once said, “I feel lonely without a war.” He also badly missed the loss of empire. Churchill’s successor – the ‘Empire of Chaos’ – now faces the same quandary. Some wars – as in Ukraine, by proxy – are not going so well.

And the loss of empire increasingly manifests itself in myriad moves by selected players aiming towards a multipolar world.

So no wonder US ‘Think Tankland’ is going bonkers, releasing wacky CIA-tinted “forecasts” where Russia is bound to disintegrate, and China is turning into a communist dictatorship. So much (imperial) wishful thinking, so little time to prolong hegemony.

China’s hypersonic strike vehicle ‘in 3d test flight’

China has reportedly conducted a third flight test for its new ultra-high speed strike vehicle – capable of travelling at up to eight times the speed of sound, in what experts suspect is part of the development of its strategic nuclear program.

The test flight, monitored by US intelligence services this week, was the third in a series of tests of the Wu-14 hypersonic glide vehicle—a high-accuracy, high speed projectile, reports the Washington Free Beacon. The first two were conducted earlier this year.

MEGA PUKE FACTOR 9 BEX ALERT! 'I'm afraid Putin will kill me': Russian opposition leader said he feared for his life days before being shot dead in drive-by just steps from the Kremlin in front of model Ukrainian girlfriend

Russian opposition leader Boris Nemtsov said he feared Vladimir Putin would have him killed just days before he was gunned down in front of his Ukrainian model girlfriend.

The former deputy Prime Minister, 55, and fierce critic of the Russian leader said 'I'm afraid Putin will kill me' in an interview shortly before he was killed in a 'politically motivated' attack.

Nemtsov, a married father-of-four, was shot four times by assailants in a white car as he walked across a bridge in central Moscow with Anna Duritskaya on Friday night, but the model was unhurt.

Just hours before his death he accused Putin of pushing Russia into a crisis through his 'mad, aggressive and deadly policy of war against Ukraine' and was due to attend an protest on Sunday.

Nemtsov had been working on a report presenting evidence he believed proved Russia's direct involvement in the separatist rebellion that erupted in eastern Ukraine last year.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Gee, I hate being right all the time!

Remember when protesters were shot in Kiev last year and Yanukovish was framed for it, in order to drive him from power? Then it came out after the Junta was installed that snipers working for the coup plotters had done the actual killing and framed Ukraine's government for, to destabilize them and make it easier to regime-change Ukraine? This is more of the same. This is more of Saddam's nuclear weapons, Iran's nuclear weapons, Assad's gas, Gaddafi's genocide, torpedoes in the Gulf of Tonkin, Spanish mines in Havana harbor, and hundreds of other lies, frauds and deceptions used to start wars for the money-junkies.

When Mike Wallace questioned Israeli story of ’90 massacre, he got called into the owner’s office

The immediate version of the bloody incident, as proclaimed by the Israeli government and accepted by almost all major media, was that the police had gunned down the Palestinians only after the Palestinians, egged on by their imams, began heaving rocks at Jews praying at the Western Wall, which lay below the confines of the Temple Mount.

Yet, as our “60 Minutes” piece showed — using footage actually shot at the time — the Palestinian charges were accurate: There were no Jews praying at the Wall when the rocks started sailing over…

The tsunami of protest hit us immediately…

Larry Tisch, a major American backer of Israel who also happened to own CBS, summoned Mike and “60 Minutes” Executive Producer Don Hewitt (also Jewish) to a fraught breakfast meeting to defend our report, fact by fact.

Mike and Don wound up in a shouting match at an A-list dinner party with real estate and publishing mogul Mort Zuckerman, literary agent Morton Janklow and Barbara Walters …

MI6 complicity? Lee Rigby killer’s torture claims investigated, says Cameron

A new inquiry will be conducted into claims that MI6 were complicit in the alleged torture of Michael Adebolajo, one of the two men later convicted of murdering British soldier Lee Rigby in Woolwich in May 2013.

The investigation will focus on how the British spy agency handled claims Adebolajo was beaten by Kenya’s security forces, who have close ties with the UK, while detained there in 2010.

Prime Minister David Cameron ordered the inquiry after a report by Parliament’s Intelligence and Security Committee (ISC) criticized MI6, also known as the Secret Intelligence Service.

The committee’s report found MI6 never asked the Kenyan authorities about Adebolajo’s claims, dismissing them as fabricated.

Italian MPs vote for Palestinian state, but conditions ‘disappoint’ PLO

The Italian parliament has become the latest major European legislative assembly to push for the creation of a Palestinian state alongside Israel, after a decisive vote Friday. However, deputies nixed a motion for the immediate recognition of Palestine.

Proposed by the ruling center-left Democratic Party, the motion vowed to “unconditionally support the goal of establishing a Palestinian state living side by side in peace, security and prosperity next to the state of Israel, on the basis of mutual recognition and total assumption of common commitment to ensure citizens to live safely and protected from all violence and acts of terrorism.”

The proposal suggested the two countries should return to the pre-1967 borders, and share Jerusalem as the capital.

Each of these includes some retelling of the pertinent facts: what, who, where, how ... but the real question is 'why'. The answer to this question, or rather, what the west insists is the answer, will tell us a lot about the US's plans to escalate the tensions in Russia over Ukraine, and beyond.

Nemtsov was no threat to Russian govt - presidential spokesperson

Boris Nemtsov did not pose a threat to the Russian government, according to presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov. The murder of the Russian opposition figure has been called a "provocation" by a number of politicians and public figures.

Boris Nemtsov was killed Friday evening in the center of Moscow. A veteran of Russian politics, he was an influential figure in the 1990s and held the post of deputy prime minister under former President Boris Yeltsin. Though he had been more involved in business than politics since 2003, he was a critic of the Russian government.

This feels like an attempt by the US to destabilize Russia by assassinating an opposition figure and framing Putin for it.

Report: Obama threatened to fire on Israeli jets attacking Iran

The decision came, according to al-Jarida, after Israel revealed that the United States and Iran had been involved in secret talks over Iran’s nuclear program and were about to sign an agreement in that regard behind Israel's back.

According to the report, Netanyahu and his commanders agreed after four nights of deliberations to task the Israeli army's chief of staff Beni Gants to prepare a qualitative operation against Iran's nuclear program. In addition, Netanyahu and his ministers decided to do whatever they could do to thwart a possible agreement between Iran and the White House because such an agreement is, allegedly, a threat to Israel's security.

The sources added that Gants and his commanders prepared the requested plan and that Israeli fighter jets trained for several weeks in order to make sure the plans would work successfully. Israeli fighter jets even carried out experimental flights in Iran's airspace after they managed to break through radars.

As a result, a number of people were arrested, including Venezuelan air force officers and activists of radical opposition. The subversive activities were guided by Western diplomatic missions. The names of those behind the plot are known but they cannot be brought to justice being protected by diplomatic immunity. The President said the plotters wanted to assassinate him. The United States embassy guaranteed that the perpetrators would be granted asylum in America.

Battle to keep the Hudson open: Ice breakers sent out in New York big freeze as hundreds flock to see ice caves opened by perfect winter conditions

The relentless snow and winter storms sweeping the country will continue into March after one of the coldest months in history.

Dozens of states will be hit by yet another Arctic blast over the weekend and into next week with meteorologists predicting almost everywhere east of the Rockies will experience temperatures between 10 and 30 degrees below average, and on Saturday there is snow expected in all 50 states, something that has not happened since the second week of February in 2010.

And with many bodies of water on or near the Eastern seaboard freezing over, the U.S. Coast Guard has been forced to deploy ice breakers to clear shipping lanes in the Hudson Valley and the Delaware River in Philadelphia.

In Wisconsin meanwhile, conditions have allowed for the creation of beautiful ice caves, as the water trickling down the caves at the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore on lake Superior freezes over.

BEX ALERT - New Docs Reveal Osama bin Laden's Secret Ties With Iran

This week, prosecutors in New York introduced eight documents recovered in Osama bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan as evidence in the trial of a terrorism suspect. The U.S. government accuses Abid Naseer of taking part in al Qaeda’s scheme to attack targets in Europe and New York City. And prosecutors say the documents are essential for understanding the scope of al Qaeda’s plotting.

...

Some of the key revelations in the newly-released bin Laden files relate to al Qaeda’s dealings with Iran ...

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Where to start with this latest pile of US Government bovine excrement? Well, the real Osama Bin Laden died in late 2001 of natural causes, then was followed by several manufactured fakes including the man at Abbatobad, who was dumped into the ocean lest anyone detect the fraud. That means that anything captured at that house in Abbatobad is just as fake.

The three men arrested were set up by an undercover FBI informant.

Research: Antidepressants Don’t Work and May Make Depression Worse

[Editor’s Note: This article is about recent research on the chemical causes of depression and the use of SSRI antidepressants to address these causes. There are many other types of antidepressants available, and antidepressants, including SSRI’s, do help many people through depression. This research, and this article, simply highlight another perspective and another side of this important story, and should not be intended as medical advice for anyone.]

At present, over 10% of people over the age of 12 in the United States take some type of antidepressant, and depression is the number one cause of medical disability in both the United States and Canada. Fighting depression is big business, and financial analysts are forecasting notable growth in the antidepressant market in coming years, while yearly sales in the US top $5 billion.

Apparently, the accepted cure for depression is pharmaceutical antidepressants, typically selective serotonin uptake inhibitors, SSRI’s.

It is intended to provide the reader with an understanding of chief mechanisms related to how consumption of Monsanto’s RoundUp, by way of consuming genetically modified corn, soy, canola oil, sugar beets, or any other “RoundUp ready” crop, as well as vaccines may fuel microglial activation, a leading factor in all neurodegenerative conditions, including autism (1)(2)(3), Alzheimer’s(4)(5), ALS(6)(7), Parkinson’s(8)(9), non-situational depression(10)(11), and virtually all forms of chronic illness. While this post is more directed towards the discussion of autism, the reality is that all of the factors that I discuss below are unquestionably major factors of consideration in all neurodegenerative conditions.

TalkTalk customers fall victim to fraudsters after data loss

TalkTalk admits that a data breach last year allowed scammers to prey on its four million customers, using stolen information to lend authenticity to over-the-phone requests for bank details which were then used to steal cash.

The communications company, which offers phone lines and broadband, say that the hack happened late last year but refused to reveal more details as “proceedings are ongoing”.

The Guardian reports that a third party contractor was involved in the loss, but the company could not confirm that to the Telegraph on Friday. Nor could it confirm how many customers were affected, saying only that it was a "small, but nonetheless significant" ammount.

It is believed that names, home addresses, phone numbers and TalkTalk account numbers were stolen.

Why Would MO Auditor & Gubernatorial Candidate Tom Schweich Kill Himself Right After Inviting Reporters to His Home?

It’s all over the news today that Republican Missouri Auditor Tom Schweich, a man who had just announced he planned to run for governor last month and who had just invited reporters to his home later this afternoon, was shot and killed this morning at his home in an “apparent suicide.”

Police have declined to comment on whether or not there was a note, what type of weapon was used, or where the wound landed at this time.

It’s odd timing considering not only his recent announcement that he would run for Missouri governor, but Schweich had scheduled interviews later that afternoon at his home with both The Associated Press and St. Louis Post-Dispatch to break a story.

In fact, Schweich had just called St. Louis Post-Dispatch reporter Tony Messenger seven minutes before the 9-1-1 call went through from his home.

This is the false narrative being sold to you to support “Net Neutrality”, and it’s going to ram you right up the chute in the form of higher costs for your Internet connections whether you want to use Netflix and Facebook or not.

Webmaster's Commentary:
