Tough new EU sanctions target Russian oil giants over conflict in Ukraine, as Moscow threatens to close its airspace to foreign passenger jets

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has vowed to respond to any new sanctions, hinting that Western air companies would be barred from using Siberian airspace for flights between Europe and Asia.

If the Russian energy and financial industries are hit, then 'we will have to respond asymmetrically - for example, with restrictions in the transport sphere.'

If European airlines are forced to fly around Russian airspace - for example on routes to and from Asia on which they overfly Siberia - it could threaten their viability, he said.

'It may lead to bankruptcy of many airlines that are teetering on the brink of survival,' he said.

'We would just like our partners to realise that', he said.

Stephen Hawking: God particle could wipe out the universe

He wrote: "The Higgs potential has the worrisome feature that it might become metastable at energies above 100bn gigaelectronvolts (GeV)."

What might this lead to? Hawkins explained: "This could mean that the universe could undergo catastrophic vacuum decay, with a bubble of the true vacuum expanding at the speed of light. This could happen at any time and we wouldn't see it coming."

Before you prepare your loved ones for an evacuation to some distant star, Hawking did offer some hope with, it seems, a wry smile: "A particle accelerator that reaches 100bn GeV would be larger than Earth, and is unlikely to be funded in the present economic climate."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am a great admirer of Professor Hawkings, especially the courage he has shown in overcoming his physical limitations, but I do nto agree with everything he says. Yes, AI might end human civilization as we know it, although AI will probably find humans useful to keep the connectors free of dust and corrosion. I disagree about alien civilizations being a threat. Any alien civilization whose technology can exceed the speed of light and cross the gap between stars would find present-day humans and Earth itself of little interest. Do you stop and examine every ant hill you p[ass as you drive down the highway? Same thing.

Long time readers know I do not support the "popular" theories of human-caused global warming or the Big Bang. With regard to the former, this coming winter will validate my skepticism, and with regard to the latter, I question whether what popped out of the LHC at Cern is a Higg's Boson, and even if it is, whether it ever actually existed before that very moment.

One of the downsides of an academic upbringing is that one is schooled to believe what the academics before you believed, which limits scientific objectivity. Professor Hawkings has refined that which he was taught to be real, but dares not stray outside the prime assumptions. Obviously were I to meet him I would be appropriately respectful and polite ... but I do have a couple pointed questions for him.

As for his claim about the end of the universe, this continues a pattern we have long seen in commercialized science of attracting attention and funding by predicting a dire catastrophe, and as this article point out, Stephen is trying to promote a book.

Israel Obstructs Gaza Rehabilitation

Nearly two weeks after conflict ended, agreed on ceasefire terms aren't implemented. Status quo conditions remain. More on this below.

Bais Moshiach, a non-official Lubavitch Center in London’s Stamford Hill neighborhood, was raided this evening by UK police and Interpol agents.

The director of the center along with his son were arrested on charges of money laundering.

Obama Gets Caught Spinning His Most Embarrassing Statement About ISIS

At least one prominent fact-checking organization is calling out President Barack Obama for falsely claiming he "wasn't specifically referring to" Islamic State militants when he dismissed them as a "JV" team.

During a Sunday interview on NBC's "Meet the Press," Obama was pressed on the comments, published in a January profile in The New Yorker. In the piece, Obama was asked about the jihadist militants that had just captured Fallujah, Iraq. He replied: "The analogy we use around here sometimes, and I think is accurate, is if a jayvee team puts on Lakers uniforms that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant."

Israeli press comes short of linking Sotloff to the Mossad but it produces the necessary evidence that would make such a suggestion into a valid option.

Why we love to hate conspiracy theories: 911 Truth as threat to the intelligentsia

What ever happened to “war is a racket” and “follow the money”?

In rigorous compliance with the true meanings of “academic freedom” [2] and “freedom of the press” virtually no academics or mainstream journalists have made it their research to find truth or to radically (at the root) question the establishment version.

Indeed, all the major and considered-radical academic pundits such as Noam Chomsky and Ward Churchill, have actively avoided the possibility that the 911 attacks could have been known or aided from within the finance-corporate-military complex.

What keeps them from crossing that line? What makes them demean attempts to cross that line? [3]

The War in East Ukraine: US-NATO’s Paranoid Falsification of Reality

More than twenty emergency United Nations Security Council meetings have been called since January, 2014, the majority of them currently demonizing Russian President Putin for destabilizing Eastern Ukraine. With the exception of China, the stark failure to acknowledge and confront the authors of the current tragic bloodshed and slaughter in Ukraine reveals paranoid ideation by US/NATO members of the Security Council, who either willfully ignore or deliberately eschew their own responsibility for the current ongoing carnage.

“Civility” is the Israel lobby’s new weapon against free speech on US campuses

As I was driving through Indiana en route to Michigan this weekend, I saw this billboard for a local sheriff’s election campaign. There, above the uniformed police officer with his military-style crew cut, is the slogan “Return to Civility.”

It seemed the perfect metaphor for what “civility” has come to mean on US campuses: the forceful policing, at the behest of Israel lobby groups, of any discourse or activism critical of Israel.

In the wake of Israel’s latest Gaza massacre, the civility police are cracking down hard. Most notoriously, administrators and trustees at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have used the excuse of “civility” to fire Steven Salaita for his strong criticisms of, among other things, Israel’s slaughter of hundreds of children in Gaza.

But civility crackdowns are now breaking out across the country. Another alarming case involves a student at Ohio University.

US Throws up Roadblocks for Those Wishing to Leave

Janet Phelan
Activist Post

The word is out. People are leaving the US in droves.

The latest FBI NICS list of American citizens who have expatriated shows a spike in individuals who have renounced their US citizenship.

The list, published quarterly, provides a grand total of 2,193 such renunciants since the end of last year. 2013 resulted in a total of 2,999 renunciants, which constituted a 221% increase over those who left in 2012. And we are just half way through 2014.

The NICS list, however, appears to be incomplete. For starters, NICS only lists renunciants, not relinquishers. And yes, there is a difference. Renouncing requires swearing an oath in front of an official of the US government and now has a $2,350 fee attached to it, a recent increase of 422%. Relinquishing does not require the involvement of a US government official but instead involves making one of a number of acts which result in forfeiting one’s US citizenship...

Police intelligence targets cash

During the rush to improve homeland security a decade ago, an invitation went out from Congress to a newly retired California highway patrolman named Joe David. A lawmaker asked him to brief the Senate on how highway police could keep “our communities safe from terrorists and drug dealers.”

David had developed an uncanny talent for finding cocaine and cash in cars and trucks, beginning along the remote highways of the Mojave Desert. His reputation had spread among police officers after he started a training firm in 1989 to teach his homegrown stop-and-seizure techniques. He called it Desert Snow.

Bank clients of Middle Eastern descent want answers on closed accounts

From Washington state to Florida, surprising letters from banks have turned up in the mailboxes of at least a dozen people..

The message in each case: Your bank account is being closed. What frustrates the recipients is not only that they are all of Middle Eastern descent — leading them to suspect discrimination — but that the banks refused to provide the reason for kicking them out.

"We never understood what's going on," said AbdulHyee Waqas, who had his Bellevue, Wash., nonprofit group's account closed. "We had been a good customer. It was very disheartening."

Last summer, a Minneapolis dentist went so far as to write detailed explanations of all his transactions, hoping that TCF Bank would let him reopen the joint account with his wife and his personal account. The response: Sorry, we're not interested in your business.

Israel rejects New Zealand's proposed ambassador

Israeli regime has refused to accept Zealand’s ambassador-designate Jonathan Curr because of his contacts with Palestinians, officials say.

New Zealand officials said on Monday that Tel Aviv had refused to accept their latest appointment to the post. Sources say Curr was scheduled to travel to Israel within the coming days to present his official documents.

Senior Israeli authorities have announced that they would not accept any ambassador who was also a representative to the Palestinian Authority (PA).

Israeli Foreign Ministry sources have said that unless Curr will remove his "dual credentials," he will not be allowed to act as an ambassador to Israel.

American-allied nations are secretly helping ISIS to grow - US Colonel Ann Wright

The US invasion of Iraq in 2003 came with many warnings that it would lead to a dire consequences for the whole region. A decade later, and the brutal jihadists from ISIS are dominating the north of the devastated country. Now, the US is again mulling the possibility of sending its army to Iraq once more - but would that actually help solve the issue? From where does the money come for the Islamic State? Is America obliged to save Iraq after what it's done to that nation? We ask these questions to American Colonel and former diplomat Ann Wright on Sophie&Co today.

Jewish man who spoke at Gaza rally forced to flee Salford home after he was assaulted and house attacked twice

An Orthodox Jewish man who spoke out against Israel’s bombing of Gaza has fled his home after it was vandalised twice and he was assaulted.

Downstairs windows at the property in Curzon Road, Higher Broughton, Salford, were smashed, eggs thrown at the property and graffiti daubed on the door and window sill.

The victim’s car was sprayed with red paint.

Police say they are treating the attacks as hate crimes.

The man is understood to have moved out of the terraced property after being targeted by a mob of up to 30 people.

The victim had expressed his views in the local community and also on King Street, in Manchester city centre, which has been the scene of protests by pro-Palestinian and pro-Israeli groups.

September Snow to Fall Over Northern Plains Tuesday

The first frost and snowfall of the year will arrive over the northern Plains before the middle of the week.

"A major cold front will push southward through the Prairies Monday with a strong, Arctic high pressure system building in behind it," said AccuWeather Canada Weather Expert Brett Anderson.

The air behind this front will be cold enough for several inches of snow to fall over the Canadian Rockies and even in cities such as Calgary and Edmonton on Monday afternoon into Tuesday evening.

Snow is then forecast to make an appearance across Montana and into North Dakota on Tuesday night

Lawyer Sanctioned for Anti-Semitism Will Host Christopher Bollyn at 9/11 Event

Bruce Leichty, a California attorney who represented 9/11 widow Ellen Mariani in federal litigation between 2007 and 2013, is hosting a 9/11 event in Southern California on September 13th. Christopher Bollyn, author of Solving 9/11: The Deception That Changed The World, will speak at the free event in San Dimas. The event is open to the public. Bollyn will also speak at an event in San Diego on Sept. 14.

Leichty and Mariani were sanctioned by a federal court of appeals for being "anti-semitic" after they notified that court of connections between the Tel Aviv-based lawyer son of New York federal judge Alvin K. Hellerstein and 9/11 defendants Boeing and ICTS, an Israeli-owned company that provided airport security at Boston's Logan Airport.

Truthstream News 03 Double Episode: About All Those Vaccines…

In this special double episode of Truthstream News, Aaron and Melissa take on the CDC whistleblower and MMR-autism scandal (and that’s just for starters) — exposing the lies and obfuscations that have hurt untold numbers. Recently released audio of the good doc has now been leaked where he says he would NEVER shoot his pregnant wife up with a thimerosal-containing vaccine.

It’s shameful, but that’s just the icing on the vaccine cake. The evidence that the CDC “hid the decline” of skyrocketing autism rates in connection with a vaccine is just the beginning. Did you know the government’s health agencies never even tested thimerosal, the 50% ethylmercury preservative shot into thousands of children daily for decades and still given to pregnant women in the form of a flu shot? In fact, the CDC says some vaccines given to children still contain trace amounts…

America Can't Pay for Its Wars, Analysis Says

America can no longer afford all of its wars and military adventures abroad.

That’s the argument put forward by a nonpartisan budget analysis expressing concern over an apparent disconnect between the Defense Department, which has submitted its new budget for fiscal year 2015, and Congress, whose inability to balance a budget and agree on deficit levels has triggered automatic cuts that have slashed military spending to the bone and beyond.

This is enough to make you throw up, so I have to apologize in advance. Listen to this man who works for the CDC say that he’d NEVER inject his pregnant wife with a flu shot because he is confident that thimerosal, the mercury-containing preservative still contained in these shots, causes TICS and he also admits he knows there is evidence thimerosal also causes “autism-like features”.

Latest IRS email loss evidence of out of control government under Obama

The latest report on Friday describing suspected lawless behavior by the United States' most powerful law enforcement agency is being characterized as an arrogant and cynical insult to the intellect of the American people and evidence of out of control government under Barack Obama.

Officials from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) -- an organization known for its sometimes questionable, ruthless pursuit of taxpayers -- told members of a House of Representatives' committee on Friday that five additional workers allegedly linked to the agency’s Tea Party and conservative targeting scandal appear to have lost emails due to computer problems.

If The Economy Is Recovering, Why Is The Labor Force Participation Rate At A 36 Year Low?

Should we be concerned that the percentage of Americans that are either working or looking for work is the lowest that it has been in 36 years? In August, an all-time record high 92,269,000 Americans 16 years of age and older did not "participate in the labor force". And when you throw in the people that are considered to be "in the labor force" but are not currently employed, that pushes the total of working age Americans that do not have jobs to well over 100 million. Yes, it may be hard to believe, but there are more than 100 million working age Americans that are not employed right now. Needless to say, this is not a sign of a healthy economy, and it is a huge reason why dependence on the governmenthas soared to absolutely unprecedented levels. When people can't take care of themselves, they need someone else to take care of them. If the percentage of people in the labor force continues to decline like it has been, what is that going to mean for the future of our society?

Space Station Defies Humans, Launches Satellites Without Permission

The International Space Station has a cannon that launches tiny CubeSat microsatellites into orbit. Most of the time, those launches are triggered by human scientists on board or back on Earth. But this week, the ISS launched two CubeSats entirely on its own. This is how the uprising begins.

Yes, on Thursday night, ISS commander Steve Swanson was loading blood samples into a freezer when he noticed the doors of the CubeSat launcher were open. Swanson alerted mission control in Houston, which confirmed that two CubeSats had been inadvertently released.

It's not the first time this has happened: A NASA status report shows that two other CubeSats were unintentionally released on August 23rd. That means that, of the 12 CubeSats launched into orbit so far, one-third of them got impatient waiting for permission, and just launched themselves.

Aljazeera Questions Legitimacy of Foley and Sotloff Beheading Videos

The Arabic version of Aljazeera, the Doha-based broadcaster funded by the House of Thani in Qatar, has joined the growing chorus questioning the beheading of journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff.

The news channel says the videos are “unconvincing” and Foley and Sotloff are actors right out of “Hollywood” casting. It believes the videos were produced as a pretext ahead of a U.S. invasion of Syria.

“Perhaps the first thing that draws the attention of the viewer” in the first beheading video is that “Foley was playing the role of champion not the victim only, for he recites a lengthy statement in peerless theatrical performance, and it seems from tracking the movement of his eyes that he was reading a text from an autocue,” Aljazeera reports.

What's Going In Yemen?

Yemen is witnessing mass demonstrations by supporters of al-Houthi. The country is not far from the chaos in the Arab world and it is one of the 'Arab Spring' countries.

Al-Houthi movement —Houthists prefer to call it 'Ansarullah' movement— is named after its leader Abdulmalek al-Houthi. The movement fought Yemeni regime for many rounds in the last decade. But what is going in Yemen?

In the context of the conflict between the pro-West gulf monarchies and Iran, the two sides are moving their loyal puppets.
Saudi Arabia clearly support 'Sunni' opposition in Iraq as well as Syrian opposition's militias (such as the Islamic Front). Meanwhile, it is the Iranian turn to move the chess piece on the southern Saudi borders (i.e, in Yemen).
Yemen's Houthi movement (i.e, Ansarullah) is calling for overthrowing current Yemeni government.

Kiev and separatists accuse each other of breaking Ukraine ceasefire as West lines up Russia sanctions

Pro-Russian rebels and the Ukrainian military accused each other on Saturday of breaking a tenuous Kremlin-backed truce only hours after it came into force across the war-battered east.

Although the situation overall appeared to be calm, the rival claims underscore the fragility of the deal that aims to end five months of bloodshed but contains no framework for a political solution to an insurgency still threatening to tear apart Ukraine.

Leftist gatekeepers ignore the architects of lies and instead blame big oil. It fits their anti corporate world view. It does not fit the evidence though. The OSP(Office of Special Plans) created a war not BP or Exxon. Everyone screaming oil is, consciously or not, helping protect Israel

Local officers, county deputies and state troopers were encouraged to act more aggressively in searching for suspicious people, drugs and other contraband. The departments of Homeland Security and Justice spent millions on police training.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How convenient. This exercise starts...tomorrow.

That means that right at the critical moment when the cease-fire between Eastern Ukraine, and Ukraine proper, is under tremendous stress, the US government is sending weapons and military "advisers" to Ukraine.

Were I a betting woman, I would bet that the US and NATO have engineered this cease fire to fail.

I don't know what the Vegas odds are on this, but right now, I would not bet against this possibility.

Just because a shooting war with Russia would be the most ham-fistedly, pigheadedly stupid thing the US government could possibly do at this moment, unfortunately, is absolutely no guarantee that the US government will not do it.

Warning to the World: Washington and its NATO & EU Vassals are Insane — Paul Craig Roberts

Herbert E. Meyer, a nutcase who was a special assistant to the CIA director for a period during the Reagan administration, has penned an article calling for Russian President Putin’s assassination.

9/11: The Shocking Truth Laid Bare

“Israel is the rogue state that is arguably responsible for the greatest mass murder in history: the catastrophe of 9-11. If scientific evidence and forensic logic are anything to go on, Israel has to be suspect number one here, given its unbroken record of terrorism and its endless breaches of international law. Any country that can orchestrate such a spectacular crime and get away with it—while somehow managing to pin the blame on nineteen Arabs with box cutters—is clearly a force to be reckoned with.”

NATO Attacks!

Ukraine is all about Germany now. Berlin wants a political solution. Fast. Berlin wants Russian gas flowing via Ukraine again. Fast. Berlin does not want US missile defense in Eastern Europe – no matter what the Baltic states scream. That’s why Poroshenko’s latest “Invasion! Invasion! Invasion!” craze is nothing but pure desperation by a lowly, bankrupt vassal of the Empire of Chaos. Of course that does not prevent Fogh of War – who got the NATO job because he was an enthusiastic cheerleader of the rape of Iraq – to keep crying “Invasion!” till all Danish retrievers come home.

The Ukraine battleground at least has the merit of showing the alliance is naked. For the Full Spectrum Dominance Pentagon, what really matters above all is something that’s been actually happening since the fall of the Soviet Union; unlimited NATO expansion to the westernmost borders of Russia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Pablo Escobar is entirely correct about needing to look at next week's SCO meeting in Dushanbe, Tajikistan.

Celebrity photo leak: Fake links to nude photos cause nationwide internet crash in New Zealand

New Zealanders keen to view hacked photos of naked celebrities have been blamed for a nationwide internet meltdown involving the country's main provider.

It is believed a handful of computer users clicked links on Friday evening believing they would be taken to the illicit images, but instead caused them to inadvertently install malware, triggering a crippling internet attack.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A test to take down the internet during the next false-flag attack?

There is no way the perpetrators of a new 9-11 can allow the independent media to operate during a false-flag, lest we find and report the signs of fraud. Remember that in the weeks ahead of 9-11, the FBI was shutting down Muslim websites here in the US, to prevent the victims of the coming frame-up from defending themselves while the official story was implanted into the population.

And the fact that this shut down was confined by the planted malware to only New Zealand suggests it was an operational test.

So don't start clicking links to see naked celebrities this next week.

Patriot Act’s absurd new spawn: Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse

Congress may be preparing to reinforce two horrible FISA Court decisions and an abusive government search with no debate in the coming weeks: a decision to give national security orders unlimited breadth, one making it legal for the government to investigate Americans for activities protected under the First Amendment, and the FBI’s “back door” searches of Americans’ communication content collected under the FISA Amendment Act Section 702 authority.

Congress is most likely giving this approval because they know what these governmental agencies have on them!

On The Brink Of A Major Crisis: “This Will Be A Literal Collapse of the Entire Global Monetary System”

Discussions of the possible collapse of the U.S. dollar often center around how such an event will affect the domestic economy. But the dollar doesn’t just operate inside of a bubble. It is the world’s reserve currency for a reason. Some sixty-six countries world-wide either utilize it as their primary currency or peg their own currencies to its exchange rate. What this means, as noted by Future Money Trends in the micro documentary below, is that if and when the dollar does come under attack the fallout will be everywhere. The collapse will happen simultaneously and affect billions of people worldwide.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are 196 nations on Earth. If only 66 are tied to the US dollar, then by definition the US dollar has already lost the status of a "global" currency.

US ‘creating pretexts’ to attack Syria: Stephen Lendman

Lap Dancers, the CIA, Pay-offs, and BP’s Deepwater Horizon

Fracked: U.S. Approves Fracking on Federal Land in California

The federal government gave the green light for oil and gas companies in California to drill on federal lands using hydraulic fracturing (fracking) and acidization techniques after a receiving a report(pdf) from an independent, non-profit group created by the Legislature.

The California Council on Science and Technology enlisted Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and Pacific Institute to do the study after U.S. District Judge Paul Grewal ruled last April that the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) couldn’t approve 2,500 acres of land for oil and gas development until it studied the effects of well stimulation on the environment.

“The potential risk for contamination from fracking, while unknown, is not so remote or speculative to be completely ignored,” Grewal wrote.

The report essentially says: We studied well stimulation. Now it is known and can be completely ignored.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Oh, really, not a problem?!?

Every federal government agent who approved this process, and their families, should be mandated to live no more than a quarter mile away from any fracking site they approve.

And approving this process in a state riddled with fault lines which may let go at any time?!?

Brilliant!

West's 'plan to force out Putin will backfire': Moscow claims US is exploiting Ukraine conflict in bid to force Russian president out of power

The West is exploiting the Ukraine conflict in a deliberate bid to force Vladimir Putin out of power, Moscow claims.

This is the real aim of US policy, but the attempt will backfire, warned former FSB secret service chief Sergei Stepashin, who preceded Putin as prime minister.

In an open letter to Barack Obama – amid a fragile ceasefire in Ukraine – he accused the US president of ‘propaganda’ in blaming Russia for the violence in Ukraine and claiming Moscow threatens its neighbours.

Ulson Gunnar
Activist Post

The United States has been inching its way toward intervention in Syria since hostilities began in 2011. From the beginning, the US State Department admitted that terrorist armies were waging war against Damascus; but both the US government, its allies in Europe, and prominent media organizations across the West repeatedly claimed that the conflict was not an invasion by multinational terrorist organizations, but rather a “pro-democracy uprising.” Now, years into the conflict, the US is finally at the threshold of direct military intervention, announcing that it would begin flights over Syria to gather “intelligence.”

Heartless prank caller threatens 1 World Trade Center with nuclear bomb

A callous prank caller threatened to destroy 1 World Trade Center with a nuclear bomb Friday night — six days before the 13th anniversary of 9/11.

The caller phoned in the threat to the city’s 911 system at about 7 p.m., claiming the device was placed next to the building near Vesey St. in lower Manhattan.

Port Authority police and members of the Joint Terrorism Task Force raced over, but found nothing, law enforcement sources said.

The call was traced to Brooklyn, but no arrests had been made Friday evening, sources said.

Thousands will be flocking to 1 World Trade Center, as well as the 9/11 Museum and Memorial, on Thursday as the city marks the 13th anniversary of the terror attack on the World Trade Center and remembers the nearly 3,000 people who died there.

Scottish referendum: Shock new poll says Scots set to vote for independence

The people of Scotland are to be offered a historic opportunity to devise a federal future for their country before next year's general election, it emerged on Saturday night, as a shock new poll gave the campaign for independence a narrow lead for the first time.

Amid signs of panic and recrimination among unionist ranks about the prospects of a yes vote on 18 September, the Observer has learned that a devolution announcement designed to halt the nationalist bandwagon is due to be made within days by the anti-independence camp.

A poll by YouGov for the Sunday Times sent shockwaves through the political establishment north and south of the border as it showed the yes camp had 51% to 49% for no, excluding the don't knows.

Why Ferguson, Boston bombing, OKC, and 9/11 are part of the same plan for domestic control

The raid against the woman and her daughter isn’t an isolated incident. It’s happening every day across the country. And it isn’t happening in a vacuum. It’s part of a long-term plan to control the population through disinformation, deception, fear, and force. In the bigger picture, this plan incorporates government-backed false flag operations like the Oklahoma City bombing, the 9/11 “attacks,” and the Boston Marathon bombing.

These “terror” events, and numerous others like them, were designed to create a false threat that would encourage people to accept the tightening fist of the police state. The elites who really run things are constructing this police state in ways that include the militarization of police as well as the increasing use of technology for surveillance and data gathering. The media occasionally raise mild “concerns” about this but do little else.

How Poor Families Fund College for Wealthy Students "A new analysis by the AASCU argues that lotteries aren’t a good way to fund public education because they’re like a reverse Robin Hood:taking from the poor and giving to students who least need the help

Eleven states earmark lottery revenue for public colleges and universities, and you’d think those schools would be thrilled about getting the money. Think again. A new analysis by the American Association of State Colleges and Universities argues that lotteries aren’t a good way to fund public education because they’re like a reverse Robin Hood: taking from the poor and giving to students who least need the help.

“Kyivskyi, Kuibyshevskyi, Petrovskyi districts of Donetsk were shelled, four civilians were killed, ten others sustained shrapnel wounds,” the headquarters reported Saturday.

Also on Friday evening APC and automatic grenade launchers opened fire on the self-defense forces gathered near the Donetsk Airport, still controlled by the Ukrainian military, according to the headquarters.

Ceasefire Over: Shelling Resumes In Mariupol And Donetsk

Perhaps unsurprisingly, numerous reports (from both sides) state that the long-awaited cease-fire in Ukraine is over. As RIA reports, the pro-Russian separatists noted Ukrainian special forces continued shelling towns and militia positions in the Donetsk region late Friday despite the ceasefire established hours before. Several reporters in the strategic 'land-bridge' city of Mariupol claims to have seen flashes from explosions and heard powerful detonations, where tanks are moving rapidly towards the eastern checkpoint. France24 also reports the Ukraine military is now accusing rebels of violating the cease-fire. AP further confirms sustained explosions outside the city of Mariupol with journalists reporting "people dying of bullet wounds."

The reason Obama did not react to the cease fire is he had already issued orders to Poroshenko to violate it!

Donetsk source: Ukrainian troops continue attacks

Ukrainian forces do not observe the ceasefire, continuing shelling Donetsk and positions of the Donetsk Republic’s militia near Mariupol, co-chairman of the People’s Front of Novorossia political movement Konstantin Dolgov told Itar-Tass on Saturday.

None of truce agreements concluded with Poroshenko has been observed. Ukrainian forces continue artillery strikes on Donetsk and its suburbs and do not stop firing in Mariupol, he said.

The Defence Ministry of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic said on Saturday that Gorlovka was under mortar fire. A coalmine was shelled in Makeyevka at about midnight. Fire was opened on the town of Yasinovataya. Ukrainian troops also fired from armoured vehicle weapons at Donetsk airport.

Dear President Putin and Russian People,

Please accept our apologies for the behavior of our Governments and Media. Western Nations, led by the United States, seem determined to start a war with Russia. A sane person would recognize the terrible consequences of such a war and would do everything in their power to avoid it. In fact it appears that this is exactly what you are doing. In the face of an endless stream of lies and provocations you have managed to keep Russia from being drawn into a nuclear war.

Independent Lab ‘Confirms Viral DNA in Merck Vaccine’

Merck can say that Gardasil contains ‘no viral DNA’ all they want, but Dr. Sin Hang Lee had reported to the FDA just over two years ago that the vaccine contains fragments of DNA that shouldn’t be in something we give young women – so why is Gardasil still on the market?

After conducting extensive research, Dr. Lee found that in 100% of lab samples tested, fragments of HPV-11, HPV-16, and HPV-18 L1 DNA firmly attached to Merck’s proprietary aluminum adjuvant.

Even though SaneVax Inc reported their findings to the FDA, the controversial vaccine used to treat cervical cancer is still being sold, and the FDA states that ‘these fragments pose no health risk.’ Once again, the FDA has ignored science which proves that a drug created by a big pharmaceutical company is less than safe.

Ceasefire: President Poroshenko trick to regroup troops – Spanish volunteer to RT

“The problem lies in the conditions of truce, because people of Novorossia do not want to be part of Ukraine – and they will stick to this line,” Gomez said.

He recalled first coming to the Ukrainian city of Lugansk, already suffering under the shells from the Ukrainian army.

“The situation was really dreadful when I arrived in Lugansk. I entered the city via a completely destroyed road. Everything there, restaurants, schools, hospitals and living quarters, was bombed out,” Gomez remembered.

The Spanish volunteer confirmed that for over a month the citizens of Lugansk lived without water, electricity and electric light, with no communications and scarce food supplies – “and all this under unceasing bombardment from the Ukrainian army, which for good measure was saying this was an anti-terrorist operation, while a full-fledged war was underway.”

CNBC Viewership Plunges To 21 Year Lows

Some observations: for the core 25-54 demo, CNBC's Business Day segment is down every month this year compared to last year, with August's 28,000 literally a step in the abyss compared to last year, as viewership plummeted by a near record 30% (with ad revenue following close behind). In fact, the last time CNBC was up in Business Day year to year was over two years ago, in July 2012.

And the punchline: this was the lowest rated month in the core demographic since February 1993! In fact, in CNBC's entire Nielsen-rated history, there is only one month in history when demo viewership was lower, back in November 1992, when demo viewership was just 1000 less at 27,000.
