THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!

"The New York Times is the house organ of the Establishment. It is committed, both editorially and in its presentation of the news, to the interests of an Establishment: continuity, security and legitimacy. Therefore they generally support business and finance, the American version of empire, the government and the president, until, and unless, some excess is so egregious that it poses a threat to continuity, security or legitimacy." -- Larry Beinhart

Silver Bullet Against Ebola Foreign Contract Exists Locally

Colloidal Silver and Nano Silver have become the silver bullets against Ebola recently including claim of the discovery by a Nigerian. It was pleasant news compared to all the bad information we get all the time. Before we say gbosa, Nigerian Government placed order for Nano Silver from abroad. For some reasons, these African leaders think our deliverance can only come from foreign contracts, even when we have the same natural “solutions” for Ebola at home.

Obamacare site hacked but nothing taken, HHS says

NEW YORK (CNN) — Hackers silently infected a Healthcare.gov computer server this summer. But the malware didn't manage to steal anyone's data, federal officials say.

A computer server that routinely tests portions of the website wasn't properly set up. It was never supposed to be connected to the Internet — but someone had accidentally connected it anyway.

That left it open to attack, and on July 8, malware slipped past the Obamacare security system, officials said.

Maryland Sheriff to Feds: Try and Take Our Guns, and You’ll Get a Civil War

Early last year, as Americans feared that the federal government would enact unconstitutional anti-gun measures via executive edict, support for the Constitution came from some unlikely places. Even in Oregon, a Democrat stronghold in elections, Linn County Sheriff Tim Mueller flat-out declared that he and his office would refuse to enforce any such unconstitutional federal laws or regulations.

Mueller wrote,

“We are Americans. We must not allow, nor shall we tolerate, the actions of criminals, no matter how heinous the crimes, to prompt politicians to enact laws that will infringe upon the liberties of responsible citizens who have broken no laws.”

The West Paves The Road To War With Lies — Paul Craig Roberts

Official statements from the Russian government indicate that the president and foreign minister continue to rely on the good will of “our Western partners” to work out a reasonable diplomatic solution to the trouble in Ukraine caused by Washington. Not only is there no evidence of this good will in Western capitals, the hostile measures against Russia are increasing. Moreover, hostile measures are on the rise even though their main effect is to disadvantage Europe.

Is the title of a book published by TRANSCEND University Press in 2009, now in second printing, and several translations including Chinese. There were two subtitles indicating answers: Successors, Regionalization or Globalization? – US Blossoming or US Fascism?

What is the situation today, five years later?

Successors? UK is militarily with USA to keep Anglo-America as a dominant world force even if a shadow of 50 years ago; France tries to keep its hold on former colonies in Africa; they use NATO-North Atlantic Treaty Organization for military and EU-European Union for political support. In empires the local elites line up to do the killing; yet the Western powers have mainly to do that themselves.

Talk Of Nuclear War Over Ukraine Beginning To Surface In Mainstream Media

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post

Until now, the talk of nuclear warfare between the United States and Russia has been confined to prescient and observant researchers largely operating within the alternative media. Western media outlets, while attempting to Portray Putin as the new Hitler and Russia as a provocateur, still attempt to paint a picture of a winnable confrontation between the two superpowers. Indeed, Western media outlets along with opportunistic politicians are attempting to nurture anti-Russian sentiment amongst the American people who, unfortunately, have no real sense of the consequences of military action...

WOC-Based Boat Witnessed Weekend Plane Crash; Fishermen Watched As F-16 Jets Shadowed Aircraft Until It Crashed

The crew on an Ocean City sportfishing boat was the first on the scene last Saturday when a small private aircraft crashed into the ocean after flying across the Eastern Shore from the Washington D.C. area with an unconscious pilot and an F-16 fighter jet escort.

Shortly after 3 p.m. last Saturday, a private single-engine Cirrus SR22 crashed into the Atlantic just over 50 miles due east of Wachapreague, Va. in the Washington Canyon just south of Ocean City.

U.S. Propaganda: Works Or Not?

After years of retrenchment in the wake of two costly wars, a new USA TODAY/Pew Research Center Poll finds that Americans increasingly are open to a larger U.S. role in trying to solve problems around the world.

The public remains conflicted over just how much the United States can and should do to address global challenges. But the initial shifts in public opinion could make it easier for President Obama to order more muscular options in striking Islamic State terrorists in Syria and Iraq. If the trend continues, it could help shape the 2016 campaign to succeed him.

Comment: The latest poll from YouGov shows the change in public opinion over the past year. Mainly due to ISIS propaganda. Now 63% of Americans support the use of military force in Syria and 16% oppose it, last year it was the reverse.

What Battlestar Galactica Can Teach Us About the Militarization of Police

In Battlestar Galactica there’s a scene where President Laura Roslyn and chief military Commander William Adama debate how to respond to the potential rioting of civilians. In the absence of a police force capable of handling the situation, Roslyn wants the military to police the civilians. Adama tells her the military won’t be her cops.

“There’s a reason you separate the military and the police,” he says. “One fights the enemy of the state, the other serves and protects the people. When the military becomes both, then the enemies of the state tend to become the people.”

House Leader: Congress Could Force War on ISIS to Escalate

Hawkishness toward ISIS has become fashionable these days among US politicians, and even the ever-escalating war against ISIS in Iraq, and talks of expanding it into Syria, aren’t nearly enough for many Congressmen’s tastes.

Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R – CA), the House Majority Leader, pushed for a bigger war, and sooner, insisting in a new interview that “if the president won’t act, I think we have to take some action to move forward.”

Four different House committees are expected to hold hearings next week on ISIS, and Rep. McCarthy insisted that they needed to come up with a “concise foreign policy doctrine” for the war.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to Representative McCarthy: it is easy for those of you in the bowels of power to talk about going to war, when it is not your sons or daughters who will be killed, or maimed for life, in a military action which is only, and solely, about the protection of private, corporate profit.

But this time, sir, Americans will not be so willing to ride the war train, because they know that the ultimate objective is NOT about preserving our "freedoms" or "democracy", but about whose currency is the reserve currency of the world.

The last 3 military misadventures undertaken by the US military have concluded in catastrophic disaster; Iraq is a mess; Libya is about to be overtaken by a caliphate; and Afghanistan is a brutal and bloody war of attrition, 13 years on, in which the US and NATO forces are losing spectacularly.

It appears that the American political class are pathologically incapable of resolving their differences with countries around the world, other than overthrowing regimes, and replacing them with tin-pot dictators, which ultimately get overthrown by the people of those countries, so losing those countries yet again.

US, South Korea to create a combined army unit to destroy North Korea’s nukes

South Korea said Thursday it would create a combined army unit with the United States, reportedly tasked with destroying North Korea’s weapons of mass destruction in the event of an all-out conflict.

The mechanised unit led by a US major general will be set up in the first half of next year, the South’s defence ministry said, as part of elaborate preparations for any future war between the two Koreas.

“It will be the first combined ‘field combat’ unit to carry out wartime operations,” a defence ministry spokesman said without elaborating on its mission.

If war breaks out, the unit would be tasked with eliminating weapons of mass destruction in the nuclear-armed North, Yonhap news agency said.

The contingent would have a joint office of US and South Korean staff in Uijeongbu, north of Seoul, where the US 2nd Infantry Division guards a strategically important area as a deterrent to an invasion by North Korea.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Could South Korea and the US government POSSIBLY telegraph, more loudly, that they are looking at starting a war with North Korea next year?!?!?

This very public announcement will NOT ratchet down tensions on the Korean peninsula at all.

TV = Weapon of Mass Deception

Most naively assume the television is simply a form of entertainment and information, when in reality the television is a weapon of mass deception, social and cultural distortion, and mass mind control.

And that's exactly what the television does. It controls and shapes our perception and interpretation of the world around us.

The establishment of the Islamic State of Libya (ISL) is imminent

The “paper” government and the “paper” assembly are now squatting the coastal town Tobrouk, known for its airbase, with no power, no future prospects and no money. They have gone that far east for two basic reasons: to be close to Egypt to seek help to reconquer the country, but that seems to be rather a wishful thinking, and if all fails, find shelter in this country. But by being territorially in Libya, they are, quite rightly, clinging to the elusive hope that the West might come to their rescue and restore their legitimacy by the use of force. They might well do that because Libya is an oil-rich country and the Islamists cannot be entrusted with it, for obvious reasns. But, on the other hand, the West is not ready to commit troops to a land-based risky operation, that could ultimately be costly in human life.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US government has no one but itself to blame for the current circumstances in Libya but itself.

By taking out Gaddafi in a military coup, and installing a puppet regime, much to the dislike and disgust of the Libyan people, the US government made it possible to create a vacuum where ISL could flourish; the same thing can be said of the US's invasion and occupation of Iraq.

Stupidity, on the part of our national leadership, should be painful.

The American people will NOT buy off on another invasion of Iraq, Libya, or an invasion of Syria.

And the invasion of Syria would be about taking out a friend to the Iranian government so that, if negotiations on Iran's nuclear program break down (which Israel is working very diligently to have happen), Iran can be invaded for yet another regime change.

However, Iran has a very close relationship with Russia. Invading Iran may well mean Russian military involvement, on Iran's side, in such a military misadventure.

One of the classic definitions of insanity is to do the same thing, in precisely the same way, yet expecting a different outcome; the US government and military appear to be hell-bent on installing puppet regimes around the world, yet are puzzled, and shocked, when the people of those countries want to take their countries back.

Shabak Strikes Again: Another Palestinian Disappeared on Security Charges

An Israeli source informed me earlier today that the Shabak arrested Muhammad Mahajna a few days ago. He is a young Israeli Palestinian (in his 20s) from Umm al-Fahm . A month ago he was arrested and questioned for postings published to his Facebook page during the Gaza war. He was then released. But four days ago, the secret police broke into his home and arrested him again.

No one has explained the nature of the charges against him. Though my source tells me they are “more serious” than those involving the previous Facebook posts. He is being held incommunicado. He has had no access to an attorney and the case is under gag order. No Israeli publication may write about his case.

Only hours after Russian President Vladmir Putin managed to secure a fragile ceasefire between the Western-backed fascist regime in Kiev and the Russian-backed separatists in Eastern Ukraine, NATO has rewarded Russia's efforts by shipping NATO soldiers into Western Ukraine, increasing the number of NATO navy vessels in the Black Sea, and leveling new sanctions against Moscow.

New Book Claims Top CIA Officer In Benghazi Told Commandos To 'Stand Down' During Attack

A new book titled "13 Hours" set for release on Sep. 9 cites five commandos who were guarding the CIA Annex in Benghazi, Libya with an explosive claim that the CIA Station Chief told them to "stand down" from any rescue attempt, The New York Times reports.

The book, written by Boston University journalism professor Mitchell Zuckoff, details the events of the Sep. 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, which resulted in the deaths of Ambassador Chris Stevens, and CIA contractors Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty.

Hillary Clinton follows Christie to Mexico in search of Carlos Slim money

Hey, why not? It’s not like borders matter anymore anyway. So what if a foreign national is trying to influence presidential campaigns? Why should we be concerned with that? And it’s not like Slim is giving money directly to Clinton’s campaign anyway. His money has gone to her charity. So it’s all on the up and up.

So that’s Slim, Buffett, and Soros smiling at Clinton. The billionaires do love Hillary.

Billionaire Carlos Slim’s contribution to the Clinton Foundation is paying off.

Hillary Clinton will be on hand Sept. 5 for Slim’s annual event to honor his own charity’s scholarship students. Clinton, the former U.S. Secretary of State and First Lady, will become the second potential 2016 presidential candidate to visit Mexico this week, following New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, who arrived today.

Webmaster's Commentary:

NATO approves new force aimed at deterring Russia

Seeking to counter Russian aggression, NATO leaders approved plans Friday to create a rapid response force with a headquarters in Eastern Europe that could quickly mobilize if an alliance country in the region were to come under attack.

NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said a command headquarters would be set up in Eastern Europe with supplies and equipment stockpiled there, enabling the "spearhead" force to mobilize and deploy quickly.

"It sends a clear message to any potential aggressor: Should you even think of attacking one ally, you will be facing the whole alliance," Rasmussen declared as a two-day NATO summit in southern Wales drew to a close.

NATO air patrol flights over the Baltic and other air, land and naval measures already in place will be extended indefinitely, Rasmussen said, as part of a readiness package that also calls for upgraded intelligence-sharing and more short-term military exercises.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Interesting timing; just when there has been a cease-fire signed between entities in Eastern Ukraine and the Ukrainian government.

One has to wonder if Poroshenko and Moscow came to some kind of "understanding" that he had to back off, because one way or another, either by losing this war, or the October elections, he was going to be out of power in very rapid order.

Nestlé and other companies can be sued for overseas child slave labor, court rules

Nestlé and other counties that sell chocolate from Africa can be sued for using child slave labor, a federal appeals court ruled.

Three former slave laborers sued the food manufacturer, along with Archer Daniels Midland and Cargill, under a 1789 law allowing lawsuits in U.S. courts for violations of international human rights.

A federal judge in Los Angeles previously dismissed the suit, ruling the law did not apply to U.S. corporations allegedly involved in illegal activities abroad.

But the appeals court found they could be sued if their conduct on U.S. soil substantially contributed to human rights violations overseas, reported the San Francisco Chronicle.

The Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals found the companies were aware from their own frequent visits and independent studies that they were selling the products of child labor.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good.

Companies which knowingly use child labor should be sued out of existence, if possible.

Will I pay more for my cocoa to insure that it is child slavery free?!?

Absolutely!!

Obama Administration (Re-)Starts Marketing Campaign For Bombing Syria

It is September 2014 and we are past the summer and past Labor Day. Time to roll out the (old) new product:

NY Times: Syria May Have Hidden Chemical Arms, U.S. Says
ABC News: US: Terrorist Could Get Syria Chemical Weapons
HuffPo: US Warns Terrorist Could Get Hold Of Syria's Chemical Weapons

United Nations Ambassador Samantha Power says the United States is concerned that the most dangerous terrorist groups could get a hold of chemical weapons if Syria is hiding any stockpiles.

We know of course that Syria has disposed of all its chemical weapons and that these were destroyed under the eyes of the OPCW. But Iraq had also disposed of all its WMD and that it has none left was in fact one reason why it could be and was easily attacked.

So is Obama is doubling down (again) on Syria? Hoping that the mystical "Free Syrian Army" (Jihadis in disguise) heavily supports by the U.S. will fight the Islamic State and the Syrian government?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is NOT about our safety and security; a new war in the Middle East is NOT about protecting our "freedoms" (such paltry ones as we may have left, after the passage of the Homeland Security Act; the Patriot Act; and the NDAA).

This is solely about money; which country's currency is accepted to pay for the oil in the region, and who has access to the oil.

I do not want to see one more of our military get killed or maimed for life in the pursuit of private profit, and I would like to hope that no thinking person out there would want to see this happening either.

We have had the chance to observe just how "wonderfully" the American interventions in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya have gone; one would imagine that with that kind of a dreadful track record, the US government would be not inclined to try this again.

But here they are, desperate for yet another war, courtesy of a rapidly declining dollar and the wish to misdirect the American people from the true reasons for their economic misery.

Americans must join together, peacefully, and say, one massive NO to this rush for another war in the Middle East.

I am, frankly, very concerned about some kind of hideous false flag, courtesy, of this government on the anniversary of 9/11, to attempt to get the American people behind this coming war.

But I would strongly caution this government that the American people are hesitant in the extreme to believe anything this government tells them, because if a proven pattern of governmental lies, which has destroyed its credibility completely.

CDC: Deadly experiment on the Black and Hispanic populations (Measles Hi titer vaccine)

new measles vaccine on “high-titer” shots that are up to 500 times more potent than standard measles vaccines.(11) In the early 1980s, they tested one of these — the Edmonston-Zagreb (EZ-HT) strain — on Mexican and Gambian babies 4 to 6 months old.(12-15) During the next few years this high-titer measles vaccine was also tested on babies in Guinea-Bissau, Togo, Senegal, Haiti, and impoverished minority communities in Los Angeles, California.(16-22)

Israel and the South African Nuclear Bomb Documents

Secret South African documents reveal that Israel offered to sell nuclear warheads to the apartheid regime, providing the first official documentary evidence of the state's possession of nuclear weapons. The "top secret" minutes of meetings between senior officials from the two countries in 1975 show that South Africa's defence minister, PW Botha, asked for the warheads and Shimon Peres, then Israel's defence minister and now its president, responded by offering them "in three sizes". The two men also signed a broad-ranging agreement governing military ties between the two countries that included a clause declaring that "the very existence of this agreement" was to remain secret.

Conflict between the US and Israel on the nuclear issue began with the outgoing Eisenhower administration. The US asked for an explanation of the top secret construction going on at Dimona. Israel claimed that the construction was of a textile plant but would not allow US inspection of the facility. The conflict escalated in 1961 when President John F. Kennedy took office.

NIH Scientist Martin Rogers Found Dead

About two weeks after he went missing, police announced an NIH scientist has been found dead in his car.

Martin John Rogers, 54, left his Gaithersburg home around 7:30 a.m. on Aug. 21 to go to work. As he was leaving, he told his wife of 25 years that he was going to a meeting -- but his co-workers said he never showed up to work that morning.

Police said surveillance video captured Martin checking into a hotel in La Valle, Maryland, looking "stressed out." Last week, police received multiple reports of possible sightings along the C&O Canal towpath, including by Edwards Ferry, near Poolesville, Violettes Lock near Darnestown, and as far away as Cumberland.

In a news release late Thursday night, Montgomery County Police announced Rogers' body was found near an abandoned car parked close to MV Smith Road in Allegany County. Police say they believe foul play was not involved.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Suuuuuuuure!

Starting right after 9-11 and extending into 2002, there was a spate of strange deaths and disappearances of microbiologists here in the US! In every case the investigators, although not identifying means of death or in some cases ever finding the missing scientist, declared there had been "no foul play!"

That this is starting again is interesting in light of the Ebola outbreak across Africa, and suspicions that Ebola is a synthetic pathogen.

IRS considers taxing free meals

The IRS could be launching a fight over free food.

Companies like Google, Facebook, Twitter and others are known for giving their employees free meals. Now, the Wall Street Journal reports, the IRS is questioning whether they should be taxed for the perk.

The agency has added company-provided meals to its list of top tax priorities for the next year. If the meals are ruled taxable, the cost of the food would be considered income to the employee. That means employers would owe payroll tax and the employee would have to pay up as well.

The IRS had no comment on the matter.

There’s a seedy trade in compromising photos stored in Apple iCloud accounts, and it is in part aided by a software program that cleanly collects the data.

Some of the nude celebrity photos are believed to have first been circulated on Anon-IB, a definitely not safe-for-work forum. As reported by Wired, the forum is full of offers for iCloud “ripping,” or downloading the entire contents of an account.

Americans will soon be barred from boarding airplanes unless they surrender to federal 'Real ID' card

Residents of nine states who attempt to use their driver's license to enter some government agency offices will be denied, because their legislatures have not agreed to accept a federal law called REAL ID. In fact, according to The Boston Globe, if those states do not accept the law, residents will also eventually lose their ability to use driver's licenses to board commercial flights.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Okay, so legal Americans citizens are having to jump through hoops to prove they are legal American citizens, and may be denied boarding flights and entering Federal Buildings if they fail, at the same time illegal immigrants are being flooded into the nation, offered financial support, amnesty, and flown/bussed all over the place at taxpayer expense. Yeah. Sure. Makes a whole lot of sense!

A jittery Israel gears up for likely war crimes battle after Gaza

TEL AVIV, Israel – A jittery Israeli military is gearing up for what could become its next big battle: dealing with U.N. investigations that could result in war-crimes allegations.

The army has beefed up its legal staff, is conducting internal investigations of its wartime actions and has prepared a detailed PR campaign of satellite photos and video clips — hoping to persuade the world that its war against Hamas was justified.

"We take our business seriously, and as such we operate within the rules and regulations under the laws of war," said Lt. Col. Peter Lerner, a military spokesman.

Israel launched the war on July 8 with a massive aerial bombardment of Gaza in response to weeks of heavy rocket fire. It later sent in ground troops to destroy a network of tunnels used by Hamas militants. Hamas and other militant groups fired thousands of rockets and mortars into Israel.

Brzezinski: Netanyahu 'making a very serious mistake'

When Hamas in effect accepted the notion of participation in the Palestinian leadership, it in effect acknowledged the determination of that leadership to seek a peaceful solution with Israel. That was a real option. They should have persisted in that.

Instead Netanyahu launched the campaign of defamation against Hamas, seized on the killing of three innocent Israeli kids to immediately charge Hamas with having done it without any evidence, and has used that to stir up public opinion in Israel in order to justify this attack on Gaza, which is so lethal.

I think he is isolating Israel. He's endangering its longer-range future. And I think we ought to make it very clear that this is a course of action which we thoroughly disapprove and which we do not support and which may compel us and the rest of the international community to take some steps of legitimizing Palestinian aspirations perhaps in the U.N.

Veolia Caves to BDS, Dumps Share in Israeli Desalination Plant

Veolia, the largest publicly-traded water company in Europe is selling its Israeli businesses after losing contracts over boycott threats. The French-based company is getting rid of its 50% stake in the Ashkeon desalination plant. A company spokesperson, Sandrine Guendoui said, “the Israeli assets are being sold as a full operating business rather than a collection of assets.”

The company had a stake in City Pass for the Jerusalem Light Rail which was transferred to Transdev. BDS protesters objected to Veolia’s involvement with the Jerusalem Light Rail, because it passes through stops in East Jerusalem, considered by Palestinian activists to be occupied territory. Guendoui commented that Veolia “has started to disengage from the transportation business completely and sell its stake in Transdev” as part of a “broader divestment plan initiated and engaged in 2011.”

Déjà Vu: The 2004 Video Execution of American Hostage Nick Berg. Was he Killed by US Intelligence?

The video of execution of American hostage Nick Berg in Iraq is threatening to develop into a major scandal. During a press conference the father of the beheaded American accused Bush and Rumsfeld of killing his son. There are more and more suspicions that Nick Berg was really executed not by Arab militants, but by the US intelligence services in order to divert the attention from the scandal about the tortures in Baghdad prison.

First there was a report that a video showing an execution of an American expert captured in Iraq was shown on a so-called ‘Islamic extremist’ website. It was reported that the execution was carried out by a group of guerillas tied to Al-Qaeda in order to take revenge for the tortures that the American soldiers did to Iraqi inmates.

Photo Tweet Claims To Show Steven Sotloff Fighting With Syrian Mercenaries

A photo tweet posted by “AzoozF” with an IS logo purportedly shows Steven Sotloff manning a truck mounted machine gun.

It was posted on Wednesday. Arabic text accompanying the photo identifies the man as Sotloff.

The unverified – and in the supposed ISIS video, not shown – beheading of Sotloff is being used as a pretext to launch a war inside Syria against the Saudi and Qatari financed and U.S. military trained Islamic State, formerly ISIS.

“Leading lawmakers in charge of foreign policy reacted Tuesday to the reported beheading of American journalist Steven Sotloff by increasing their calls for more congressional involvement and oversight of President Obama’s war on ISIS,” Josh Rogin wrote for The Daily Beast on Tuesday.

Cameron seems to be considering breaking International law, not once but twice.

First he is considering arming the Kurds in Iraq without the permission from the Iraqi Government. Perhaps he thinks there really is a Kurdistan.

ISIS, ISIL or IS is armed, funded and trained by the USA. Their objective in Iraq is to totally destabalise the nation and weakening it by splitting it into three, part Kurd, part Iraqi and the remainder an Islamic Caliphate.

Secondly he’s openly suggesting that the UK should bomb parts of Syria without the permission of the Syrian Government , not any different in the slightest with Blair’s illegal invasion of Iraq. Cameron declares the Assad Government to be illegitimate.

That being the case in his mind, means that not a country in the world is safe from invasion or attack, Cameron can simply declare the Government to be illegitimate.

Alaska VA Clinic Without Doctors

Three doctors that practiced at a clinic in Wasilla decided to not renew their contracts. In the meantime, some former employees at the Minneapolis VA Medical Center say they were told to falsify records on follow-up care.

The Veterans Affairs clinic in Wasilla is without doctors after the three physicians working under contract over the summer decided not to renew .... A nurse practitioner, who transferred from Anchorage last week, is now carrying the 1,000-patient caseload. The Mat-Su Veterans Affairs Community Based Outpatient Clinic is supposed to have two full-time doctors but has been down one since 2012. The last full-time doctor left in May, KTVA reported.

UK, US and Israel spy on Middle-East from Cyprus

Telecommunications in Turkey and the entire Middle-East are being monitored from listening stations based on the Eastern Mediterranean island of Cyprus, a senior Turkish Cypriot lawyer has claimed.

Former Union of Bars head for Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) capital Lefkosa (Nicosia) and writer, Baris Mamali, warned that the island of Cyprus could be dragged into the wars in the Middle-East due to it being a listening post for a number of Western intelligence agencies including the CIA, the NSA, Mossad and MI6.

In his column published on Thursday by OdaTV, Mamali claimed that the British military air base in Akrotiri was not only hosting four fleets of war planes but also a large electronic intelligence facility in addition to specially designated areas for the storage of nuclear weapons. Mamali further claimed that a second British base in Dhekelia contains two intelligence stations in which intercepted information is deciphered and analyzed by a team of experts.

Ukraine, Separatists Agree On Cease-Fire; EU May Suspend Sanctions

While we had grown weary of trashed truces and snapped cease-fires in Israel, it appears, according to Interfax, that Ukraine and the pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine (having gained notably over the army in recent days) have agreed a cease-fire:

*UKRAINE, SEPARATISTS AGREE ON CEASE-FIRE FROM 6PM TODAY: IFX
*POROSHENKO: PRELIM. PROTOCOL TO CEASE-FIRE SIGNED IN MINSK: BBC

Great news, especially for Merkel (and Hollande) who has already come out and noted that the cease-fire means EU could suspend sanctions (saving face and avoiding some further escalation). The question is - how much of Putin's 7-point-peace-plan will Ukraine acquiesce to? If any?

Slen's guest, Richard Gage, explained that his group of experts, Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, believes that the World Trade Center was brought down by explosive demolition on September 11, 2001 and not because of aircraft flying into the Twin Towers. Gage founded his group of highly credentialed experts in 2006 and said its mission was to “expose the official lies and cover-up surrounding the events of September 11, 2001 in a way that inspires the people to overcome denial and understand the truth.” Mr. Gage spoke via video link from San Francisco, California.

According to Gage, AE911Truth has studied the available information regarding the destruction of World Trade Center's Buildings 1, 2, and 7. He stated that the evidence gathered includes video and audio recordings, photographs, eyewitness accounts, and physical evidence.

Ron Paul: US govt. knew about 9/11

Former US congressman Ron Paul has suggested that the US government knew about the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks before the incident occurred inside the country.

“I believe that if we ever get the full truth [about 9/11], we’ll find out that our government had it in the records exactly what the plans were, or at least close to it,” Paul said in a radio interview with Money and Markets host Charles Goyette last Friday.

“You already mentioned that [the US government] had been warned that something was going to happen,” he added.

“Does that prove the fact that our president and others actually sat down and laid the plans and did this? I don’t think it does,” he said.

The former presidential candidate also noted that the crimes committed by former al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden were “minor” compared to the harm the United States has caused since the 2001 attacks.

16 Apocalyptic Quotes From Global Health Officials About This Horrific Ebola Epidemic

Ebola continues to spread an an exponential rate. According to the World Health Organization, 40 percent of all Ebola cases have happened in just the last three weeks. At this point, the official numbers tell us that approximately 3,500 people have gotten the virus in Africa and more than 1,900 people have died. That is quite alarming, but the real problem will arise if this disease continues to spread at an exponential pace. One team of researchers has used computer modeling to project that the number of Ebola cases will reach 10,000 by September 24th if current trends continue. And if the spread of Ebola does not slow down, we could be dealing with 100,000 cases by December.

The 9/11 Hijackers: Fraud in Official Video Exhibits Uncovered

Court exhibits state that leader Mohamed Atta took a commuter flight from Portland, Maine, to connect to AA Flight 11 out of Boston, which hit the North Tower.

The dubious images heighten the mystery of why Atta left Boston, where Flight 11 was to be hijacked, and risked the failure of his entire mission by driving to Portland September 10, staying overnight, and booking a tight connection back to Boston early September 11.

Atta’s bags, central to the story, failed to make the connection and were found in Boston’s Logan airport with incriminating evidence about the hijacking operation.

The Panel’s in-depth review shows the Portland story to be peppered with inconsistencies and revisions, placing the entire hijack theory in question.

‘Missing voters’ up 62 percent in North Carolina

RALEIGH, N.C. — “Alarming” numbers of inactive voters are fattening election rolls in North Carolina, an electoral group charges.

The Voter Integrity Project of North Carolina reports that voters classified as inactive grew from 460,065 in 2007 to 739,041 this year – a 62.3 percent increase.

VIP calls them “missing voters” who election officials can no longer locate.

“This is worse than dead people (on the voter rolls) because you can’t find them,” said Jay DeLancy, executive director of VIP.

“The alarming recent growth in this voter category points to a more systemic problem,” he said.

The only decline in North Carolina’s missing/inactive voters since 2007 occurred in 2012, when VIP discovered nearly 30,000 deceased people still registered to vote.

The 15-year-old moved to Clay County, Fla., from Seattle just eight days before school started and wasn’t familiar with the public school’s dress code, which says skirts can be no more than three inches above the knee. The black skirt she was wearing hovered closer to 4 inches above her knees

NASA Instrument on Rosetta: First Science Results

From the data, the Alice team discovered the comet is unusually dark -- darker than charcoal-black -- when viewed in ultraviolet wavelengths. Alice also detected both hydrogen and oxygen in the comet's coma, or atmosphere.

Rosetta scientists also discovered the comet's surface so far shows no large water-ice patches. The team expected to see ice patches on the comet's surface because it is too far away for the sun's warmth to turn its water into vapor.

"We're a bit surprised at just how unreflective the comet's surface is and how little evidence of exposed water-ice it shows," said Alan Stern, Alice principal investigator at the Southwest Research Institute in Boulder, Colorado.

A Lie That Serves The Rich the truth about the American economy

Paul Craig Roberts, John Titus, and Dave Kranzler

The labor force participation rate has declined from 66.5% in 2007 prior to the last downturn to 62.7% today. This decline in the participation rate is difficult to reconcile with the alleged economic recovery that began in June 2009 and supposedly continues today. Normally a recovery from recession results in a rise in the labor force participation rate.

The Obama regime, economists, and the financial presstitutes have explained this decline in the participation rate as the result of retirements by the baby boomers, those 55 and older. In this five to six minute video, John Titus shows that in actual fact the government’s own employment data show that baby boomers have been entering the work force at record rates and are responsible for raising the labor force participation rate above where it would otherwise be. http://www.tubechop.com/watch/3544087

Huge 45 foot digital billboard near Times Square will show video of the collapse of WTC7, millions will see it

ReThink911 Billboard
to Go Digital in NYC!
Huge Two-Sided Video Billboard in Times Square
One Block from the New York Times

The bad news — unfortunately, we cannot go forward with the billboard directly in front of the New York Times Building. The group currently occupying it has a year-long contract. While they had agreed with the billboard company to take a break for the month of September so that we could have the space, the agreement allowed them to change their mind until the last minute, and unfortunately they exercised that option.

The good news — (and we think it's really good!) – is that we found an even more stunning billboard just one block away at the corner of 42nd Street and 8th Avenue. Not only does this billboard draw maximum attention by facing in two directions while towering over one of the busiest intersections in Manhattan; but it’s also digital, which allows us to show practically life-size video footage of WTC 7’s symmetrical destruction. And that’s exactly what we plan to do!

Our Cold War With Russia Could Turn Hot

As the NATO summit approaches, and Ukraine’s ruthless war on its eastern provinces sets off an exodus of nearly a million refugees to Russia, war hysteria in the West is reaching epic proportions. The pundits are up in arms: miffed that the long-awaited Russia invasion has failed to materialize, they are now declaring it happened anyway – it’s a "stealth" invasion, i.e. the kind only a neocon can see. There has to have been a Russian invasion, because, after all, the Ukrainians are losing, and it can’t be because their soldiers are deserting in droves or turning tail and running at the prospect of having to shoot their fellow countrymen.

Food safety fears as supermarkets put price squeeze on their suppliers that effectively forces them to commit fraud

Supermarkets are putting customers in danger by demanding price cuts from suppliers that effectively force them to commit fraud, a food safety expert has warned.

And the situation has worsened since the horse meat scandal, according to Professor Chris Elliott, who was asked by the Government to investigate industry practices.

He said the current high street price war means the pressure on suppliers is worse than in January last year, when it emerged that horse meat was being passed off as beef in supermarkets and fast food restaurants.
