“Alarming Levels of Radioactivity” Detected in NY Power Plant

By now, the average American has no excuse for not knowing how decrepit our infrastructure has become. Many of our roads, bridges, and dams are falling apart, and continue to be used long after their expected lifespan has expired. When any of these structures fail, you can expect plenty of casualties and mayhem.

But there’s only so much damage that a crumbling dam or bridge can do. The most frightening aspect of our infrastructure, is our electrical grid. Specifically, our nuclear power plants. If anything ever happened to those facilities, it would make any other infrastructure related disaster pale in comparison. And unfortunately, we may have just received a small taste of what that disaster might look like. A nuclear reactor was just shut down in New York, after a monitoring well detected a 65,000% increase in radiation levels.

WAR GAMES IN MIDDLE EAST COULD PREPARE UK FOR ‘POTENTIAL’ RUSSIAN WAR WITH NATO – REPORT

The British Army is to deploy 1,600 troops in Jordan to take part in war games as preparation for a potential ‘confrontation’ between Russia and NATO member countries in Eastern Europe, the Daily Telegraph has reported citing sources.
Army sources told the paper that the exercise, which will simulate an Iraq invasion for the first time in over a decade, is not a prelude to sending ground troops to fight Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS, ISIL), rather Exercise Shamal Storm could be seen as a practice routine to fight off any potential Russian invasion of Ukraine or Eastern Europe.
“This isn’t a counter-Isil exercise. If anything, this is much more about us being prepared to join the US in Ukraine than it is in Syria,”
a source said as cited by the Daily Telegraph, adding, “This is not the sort of kind of force you expect to roll into Aleppo to take on a bunch of jihadists.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Has the leadership of NATO, the US, and the UK collectively gone absolutely, thoroughly, barking mad?!?

Russia is not going to invade either Eastern Europe, or Ukraine.

And Ukraine is so economically ruined, courtesy of the recent putsch, and the rampant corruption which followed, that it might be forced to get down on its knees and beg Russia for some economic help.

But unfortunately, as the great American comic, Ron White, says in his act so frequently, "You can't fix stupid".

And we have a lot of stupidity going on in the bowels of power in the US, NATO, and Europe.

The US economy is on the ropes, as is the economy of Europe.

And the civilian and military leadership of both of those entities have imbibed enough of their own "koolaid" to believe that a war with Russia will solve all if their economic problems.

After all, it worked for the US in World Wars I and II, right?!?!?

But there is one small problem with this grotesque "groupthink": The US and NATO do not have the troop strength, the weapons, the money, or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to a war against Russia; this is what makes the military scenario here so dangerously scary.

Were I in the bowels of power in NATO, the US, or Europe, I would be looking at trust and trade building actions relative to Russia; not warmongering and threatening.

Of course, that...would be logical.

America’s Largest For-Profit College Sold To Group Led By Obama’s ‘Best Friend

Apollo Education Group, the company that owns the large but struggling University of Phoenix, is being sold to private investors led by a firm notable for its extensive ties to President Barack Obama’s administration.

Apollo announced in January that it was looking for a buyer interested in patching up a college that appears to be in deep trouble. While it remains the U.S.’s largest for-profit college, the University of Phoenix has seen its enrollment plunge from over 450,000 students six years ago to less than 180,000 today. The bleeding hasn’t stopped yet — dozens of its campuses around the country have closed.

New Hampshire Election Fraud Prediction

If the hypothetical fixers in the GOP establishment can fix New Hampshire, they have a big decision to make about how far to go. If they don’t fix the race, or they fix it only a little, Trump will win big and he might be unstoppable. You can’t have that if you are the establishment fixers.

But after Iowa, lots of folks are watching for irregularities. And after Rubio’s recent debate failure, there is no natural reason to expect Rubio (the establishment’s candidate) to have another “surprise” surge as he did in Iowa. That would be too obvious. So the fixers (if such people exist) can either lose the White House or risk getting caught by making too large a fix. Which way would they go?

DANGEROUS SPEECH: WOULD THE FOUNDERS BE CONSIDERED DOMESTIC EXTREMISTS TODAY?

Not only has free speech become a four-letter word - profane, obscene, uncouth, not to be uttered in so-called public places - but in more and more cases, the government deems free speech to be downright dangerous and in some instances illegal.

The U.S. government has become particularly intolerant of speech that challenges the government’s power,reveals the government’s corruption, exposes the government’s lies, and encourages the citizenry to push back against the government’s many injustices.

Indeed, there is a long and growing list of the kinds of speech that the government considers dangerous enough to red flag and subject to censorship, surveillance, investigation and prosecution: hate speech, bullying speech, intolerant speech, conspiratorial speech, treasonous speech, threatening speech, incendiary speech, inflammatory speech, radical speech, anti-government speech, right-wing speech, extremist speech, etc.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As a Christian pacifist who never advocates violence, but advocates for good faith negotiations and logic as most generally the best answers to geopolitical problems, even I could be arrested, under the NDAA, and thrown into prison indefinitely, with no due process whatsoever.

I have to wonder what the founding Fathers - and the women who loved them, like Abigail Adams, the wife of John Adams - would think about that.

FORCED VACCINATION FOR ALL HOSPITAL WORKERS PASSES INDIANA SENATE UNANIMOUSLY

?We contacted you a couple of weeks ago to ask for your help to oppose a bad bill, SB 162, which implements vaccine mandates for all hospital employees having patient contact starting in 2017. SB 162 is authored by Sen. Patricia Miller and Sen. James Arnold. House Sponsors are Rep. Cindy Kirchhofer and Rep. Charlie Brown. There have been some very concerning developments with this bill requiring your immediate communication with your legislators.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder just how generous big pharma's overt, and covert, campaign contributions were to the campaigns of Rep. Cindy Kirchhofer and Rep. Charlie Brown, in order to get that bill passed.

Were I a medical professional in Indiana, I would be resigning, voting with my feet, and moving to a state where health care professionals had a choice about getting vaccinated.

ERDOGAN THREATENED TO ‘OPEN DOORS TO GREECE AND BULGARIA’ AND FLOOD EU WITH MIGRANTS – REPORT

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan threatened to “put refugees on buses” and flood Europe with migrants if EU leaders did not offer him enough cash to help curb the influx of asylum seekers, a leaked record of a high-level meeting claims.

"We can open the doors to Greece and Bulgaria anytime and we can put the refugees on buses,” Erdogan was quoted as telling European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker and European Council President Donald Tusk after being told that the EU was offering Turkey €3 billion over two years.

The minutes of the meeting that apparently took place in November in Antalya have been published by the Greek financial news website euro2day.gr

After Tusk mentioned the difficult situation in the European Union, Erdogan, who reportedly demanded €6 billion over two years, said: “So how will you deal with refugees if you don't get a deal? Kill the refugees?"

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The "truth"?!?!?

This hubristic, strutting popinjay wouldn't know the truth if it approached him to embrace him, gently.

And the truth here is, between Russian sanctions, after Turkey downed that Russian fighter, and Erdogan's refusal to allow Kurds to become a viable part of Turkey's political process, Turkey could well be looking at a looming civil war, tearing the country completely apart.

And that... is the truth.

Cops Recording Your Every Move For 10 Weeks Doesn't Violate The Constitution

A federal appeals court on Monday ruled it is not unconstitutional for law enforcement to set up a camera on a public utility pole and record a suspect's moves for 10 weeks straight.

Such warrantless recording is permitted, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit said, because people have "no reasonable expectation of privacy in video footage recorded by a camera that was located on top of a public utility pole and that captured the same views enjoyed by passersby on public roads."

The ruling stemmed in part from a nasty, years-long confrontation between two Tennessee brothers and local police -- long-simmering bad blood that led to shootouts, officer deaths and ultimately a criminal trial that ended in acquittals for the brothers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, according to current judicial rulings, Americans have no right of privacy...ANYWHERE.

Phones and other electronic devices are constantly surveilled, even without warrants, using what are called "stingray" devices, and to what end?!?

I frankly despise a government which constantly characterises me as "the enemy" when I am simply living my life, and doing nothing wrong or illegal; and right now, that is how America's Federal Government views all of us.

Primaries and Caucuses Take a Backseat to Party Insiders

Now that the Iowa Caucus is in the record books, contrary to Trump’s demand for a redo, the respected party brokers are eager to weed out the hanger-on’s. Mike Huckabee, Rick Santorum, Rand Paul and Martin O'Malley are gone. The GOP Party, started in 1854, is circling the wagons behind their establishment pick, Marco Rubio and the Democratic National Committee, founded in 1848, will do everything necessary to see that Hillary Clinton gets her chance to steal their selection. All of this chicanery is being practiced by two private political power hungry organizations. Proprietary rules and internal arbitration is the hallmark of party control and discipline, which ensures that the final outcome goes as the money interests deem.

Just weeks after Michigan’s governor issued an apology for the state’s handling of the Flint water crisis and petitioned the Obama administration to declare a state of emergency, he reportedly threw a secret, lavish party for his wife.

The birthday celebration that Governor Rick Snyder threw for his wife Sue at an upscale restaurant in Ann Arbor was first reported by Ann Arbor blogger Mark Maynard. When Maynard went to investigate the party, he discovered the windows at the restaurant had been “blacked out” and a security detail outside, apparently not knowing that the event had been organized by governor.

In September 2015, three class action lawsuits brought in California accused Nestlé, Hershey, and Mars of turning a blind eye to human rights abuses by cocoa suppliers in West Africa while falsely portraying themselves as socially and ethically responsible. Nestlé, Cargill and ADM are currently facing a separate lawsuit brought by three Malian former child slaves in 2005 that accuses the companies of aiding and abetting child slavery in Côte d’Ivoire’s cocoa market.

FLASHBACK - Ted Cruz is not eligible to be President of the United States; The meaning of "Natural Born."

Ted Cruz's supporters try to get around "Natural Born" by claiming it simply means any US citizen, an opinion even echoed at Wikipedia!

But if any US citizen could be President, then the qualifier "Natural Born" would not be needed (and is not present in the Constitutional citizenship requirements for Representatives and Senators). Clearly, to the Founding Fathers, "Natural Born" had a specific and obvious meaning, applied exclusively to the Presidency!

The Founding Fathers did not need to define what "Natural Born" meant inside the Constitution as it had been defined in existing legal theory in works such as "The Law of Nations" by Emerich de Vattel, published in 1758 and relied on heavily by the framers of the Constitution. "Natural Born" was already legally defined when the Constitution was written as "born inside the nation."

CDC-Oxford ‘Death Gene’ Is Key To The Brazilian Babies Riddle

The mobilization of 500,000 soldiers and public-health workers to spray pesticides across Brazil is effectively terminating a controversial British-American biotechnology project that has released millions of gene-engineered mosquitoes in a backfired experiment to combat the dengue fever virus (DENV). The Oxitec gene-manipulation technique called RIDL (Release of Insects carrying a Dominant Lethal) is widely suspected of spreading a new virulent strain of ZIKA virus, and the Brazilian outbreak in turn raises fears of a link to microcephaly or reduced brain size in human embryos. (Oxitec is a corporate spinoff of Oxford University, even though most of its researchers are with less prestigious British schools or from the United States.)

Zika: GE Mosquitoes Bite, Deliver Flying Vaccine?

By Jon Rappoport

Zika: the ideal fake epidemic to stir “need” for airborne vaccination: “we must do something to stop the spread of the virus.”

No need to mandate shots: release mosquitoes to deliver them.

People are discussing whether genetically engineered mosquitoes could have spread Zika, the virus that causes nothing. Rather, look to the future, when such biting mosquitoes could deliver flying vaccinations against the virus that causes nothing...

“One thing I happen to know about — and I can’t make any claim about it now — but I know this.

SoCalGas knows that, and they ought to be straight about it. They ought to be telling us… but they’re not.”

Britain’s House Price Crash – 2016 Predictions Mount

Housing in many countries, especially Britain is no longer an investment, it’s now made up of three fundamentals; consumption, crime and concern. The general public getting on the bandwagon with cheap loans is consumption. The crime slot is taken now that over 40% of Britain’s housing stock is bought in cash with property used as an international laundrette to wash hundreds of billions and concern comes from savers who quite rightly think that the banks and government will steal their hard earned (low or negative savings rates), tax paid money that drives a reluctant middle class into becoming landlords.

Is it Islamophobic to record ‘Christianophobic’ hate crimes?

A freedom-of-information request by Sikhs has turned up some curious statistics from the Metropolitan Police. They show that of the more than 400 ‘Islamophobic hate crimes’ recorded in the first half of last year, 28 per cent were not attacks on Muslims at all. They were either attacks on people thought to be Muslims (often Sikhs) or attacks classified as Islamophobic because of the absurd criteria (invented by the Macpherson Report on the death of Stephen Lawrence) which define such incidents as ‘any offence which is perceived to be Islamophobic by the victim or any other person’.

Appeasing Iran, Then Shortchanging Israel

The Israeli DEBKAfile news site reports that Israeli officials meeting with the Obama administration’s National Security Council at the White House were denied a request for additional $1.9 billion in military aid to counter new and enhanced threats. The threats include the increased arms Iran will be able to give the Hezbollah terrorist group with the tens of billions of dollars Tehran will have available from the nuclear deal’s lifting of sanctions.
Note: President Harry Truman quote "The Jews, I find are very, very selfish. They care not how many Estonians, Latvians, Finns, Poles, Yugoslavs or Greeks get murdered or mistreated as D[isplaced] P[ersons] as long as the Jews get special treatment.

Sanders now has 45 percent of Democrats nationwide supporting him, according to a new poll out today by Reuters/IPSOS.

A Whiff of Methane and the Odor of Corruption

By Brett Redmayne-Titley

“Oh! Sure. Twice, just last week,” answered Porter Ranch resident Jim Baker to the question about whether the smell of methane gas was reaching his home. “Smells like, well… it’s an oily smell,” continued Jim. “No. You can’t always smell it. It’s when the wind is slack, that’s when it comes down on the houses.”

Indeed. Residents across the affluent north Los Angeles, CA suburb of Porter Ranch report the same smell. Not good: methane gas is poison. On day one of an on-scene look at the world’s largest natural gas leak, which every day spews uncontrolled at extremely high pressure the equivalent greenhouse gas pollution of 4.5 million cars, another distinct smell is becoming obvious: political corruption...

Vasiliev wrote that in the news story, Russia was accused of using "unguided" bombs that lead to large civilian casualties, but France, working in a coalition, "successfully" destroyed terrorists of "Islamic State".

VA demands proof World War II combat vet with Purple Heart served in military

The Veterans Affairs Department refuses to pay benefits to a World War II vet in his 90s who was wounded in combat and earned a Purple Heart.

“I get this letter that says we can’t accept it because we’ve got no record of you being in the service,” he told the station. “I guess I’m the unknown soldier.”

He was wounded in a foxhole in the Philippines in 1944.

“There were four guys in there, and two guys got killed,” he told the station. “And then the other guy, he got his leg… Oh, hell. I guess he lost his leg. It was slit in four places where a grenade hit between us and I got one in my leg.”

Limpert said he waited until now to apply for benefits because he is down to nothing.

In just a few days the first real ballots of the 2016 election will be cast in Iowa, and up to this point the big story of this cycle has been the rise of “outsider” candidates that many of the pundits had assumed would never have a legitimate chance.

France Moves to Make ‘Conspiracy Theories’ Illegal by Government Decree

A history stitched together by lies and cover-ups, political assassinations, slight-of-hand false flag deceptions, secret societies, dual loyalties and stolen fortunes – this has been the exclusive privilege of organized crime and the ruling elite for centuries. Putting aside history’s ‘big ticket’ items though, the real reason for this authoritarian trend is much more fundamental. By knocking out their intellectual competition, political elites and their media moguls hope to minimalize, and thus eliminate any alternative analysis and opinion by applying the completely open-ended and arbitrary label of “extremist” to speech. They want to wind back the clock, where a pre-internet, monolithic corporate media cartel held a monopoly on ideas.
