Official: Some Clinton emails 'too damaging' to release

The intelligence community has now deemed some of Hillary Clinton’s emails “too damaging" to national security to release under any circumstances, according to a U.S. government official close to the ongoing review. A second source, who was not authorized to speak on the record, backed up the finding.

The decision to withhold the documents in full, and not provide even a partial release with redactions, further undercuts claims by the State Department and the Clinton campaign that none of the intelligence in the emails was classified when it hit Clinton's personal server.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Okay, the suckers didn't buy the 'snowstorm made us late' excuse, so let's just say it's a threat to National Security!" -- Official White Horse Souse

(ahem)

I told you when the State Department tried to delay with the snowstorm excuse there was something juicy in this last batch!

So, we get the "nunya bizniss' treatment ... which means we are all free to imagine the worst interpretation; The FBI discovered that Hillary Clinton was putting those classified documents on her private server to sell to foreign governments, collecting and laundering the cash through her "charitable" (nudge nudge wink wink say no more) foundation.

US Hawks Ignore Top Israeli Official on Iran

Last week, Israel’s top military official made some staggering comments during the course of a security conference in Tel Aviv. Here’s how The Forward‘s JJ Goldberg reported the comments of Lieutenant General Gadi Eisenkot, Israel’s chief of staff, which seem as of yet to be unavailable in a full English translation from the original Hebrew:

Eisenkot said there were two “existential threats” to Israel, and both are currently “declining.” One was the threat of nonconventional weaponry, including both Iran’s nuclear program and Syrian chemical weapons…
First, he said Israel faces no existential threats right now, because Obama’s Iran nuclear deal has removed the greatest threat to Israel’s existence…
As for the Iranian nuclear agreement, he said it is “a strategic turning point” that includes “many risks but also opportunities.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a serious, sober, and reasonably sane assessment, which is why DC will make every effort to ignore it completely.

Pentagon Looking for 'Worthy Partners' to Fight Daesh in Libya

The United States has deployed military personnel to Libya in an effort to establish contact with militias and other forces that Washington may be able to back in the fight against Daesh, the Pentagon said on Wednesday.

Pentagon press secretary Peter Cook told reporters that there is a "small" presence of US military personnel in Libya seeking to establish contact with various militias and other factions to "get a better sense of who the players are" and "who might be worthy of US support."

Cook refused to say if the military personnel included US soldiers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: the US government is looking for proxy fighters to do our killing for us, and just as savagely viciously as the Saudis are doing in Yemen, where schools, hospitals, residences, and ambulances are targeted, and innocent civilians are getting assassinated by the hundreds.

New Hampshire militant busted after buying grenades to bring back ‘the original Constitution’

A New Hampshire man seeking to get back to the “original Constitution” was arrested by the FBI on Wednesday after he purchased grenades from an undercover agent, telling him he had another $200,000 on hand to buy C-4 explosives and “rocket-type stuff.”

Daniel E. Musso Sr., 54, of East Kingston was taken into custody for receipt and possession of an unregistered firearm, reports the Union-Leader.

According to authorities, in early 2015 Musso provided a local firearms dealer with $6,000 and a wish list of items he wanted to purchase including guns, large amounts of ammunition, a gas mask, grenades and rockets.

According to the investigation affidavit, Musso allegedly claimed he could sell large quantities of grenades and that he belongs to a group of people bringing back “the original Constitution,” while noting that he feared the government might be on to their efforts.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Call me silly, but this reeks of setup!!

Where in heaven's name did this guy come up with the $260,000.00 to make these buys, anyway?!? I mean, even with Wiemar-Republic style inflation going on in this country, that is not a small amount of money, and in some states, may even be enough to buy a home outright.

And one does NOT support the total restoration of the Constitution and Bill of rights with violence; one does this with calm, rational thinking, and changing, and hopefully inspiring, one mind at a time as to how important these documents should be, in the daily lives of all American citizens.

One also needs to point out the legislation in the 21st century which have eviscerated many of those rights granted to us by the Constitution and Bill of Rights, including the Patriot Act, the Homeland Security Act, and the NDAA, which should be ultimately removed from law by Congress.

This appears to be a desperate attempt to completely kookify, marginalize, and smear all those who are completely peaceful when it comes to supporting the Constitution and Bill of Rights, which I, as Christian pacifist, absolutely do.

After all, these documents ARE the original "contract with America", and should be respected, as the basis of the law of the land, by all Americans.

I have to wonder just how far this trial will go before the judge throws it out of court as a complete setup of another not terribly bright patsy; heaven knows, the FBI has certainly pulled stunts like this before.

CHICAGO POLICE HAVE BEEN SABOTAGING THEIR DASH CAMS

After the notorious video of Laquan McDonald getting shot by Chicago police officers 16 times went viral last November, investigators have been making their way through the other videos of the scene. In doing so, they’ve discovered that three of the dash cams pointed at McDonald that day did not record video, and others had no audio. Now a Chicago Police Department audit reveals that many of the department’s dashboard cameras have been deliberately sabotaged.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am not surprised; after all, it IS Chicago.

But the Superintendent of police needs to do some game-changing for the Chicago police department. If these cameras are messed with deliberately in any way, the officer who did this should be fired, with no chance of getting their job back, period, end of discussion. That should be made very clear to every officer in the force, with no exceptions.

6 CITIES IN MICHIGAN HAVE EVEN HIGHER LEVELS OF LEAD THAN FLINT

As the nation rightly focuses on Flint’s ongoing water crisis, other cities in the state of Michigan face even higher levels of lead contamination. The alarming pervasiveness of potentially toxic drinking water extends across the United States.

The Detroit News reports that “Elevated blood-lead levels are seen in a higher percentage of children in parts of Grand Rapids, Jackson, Detroit, Saginaw, Muskegon, Holland and several other cities, proof that the scourge of lead has not been eradicated despite decades of public health campaigns and hundreds of millions of dollars spent to find and eliminate it.”

Of over 7,000 children tested in the Highland Park and Hamtramck areas of Detroit in 2014, 13.5 percent tested positive for lead. Among four zip codes in Grand Rapids, one in ten children had lead in their blood. In Adrian and south-central Michigan, more than 12 percent of 640 children tested had positive results.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The consequences of lead poisoning on children are permanent.

Yes, there have been some attempts to ameliorate it with chelation therapy, and intravenous vitamin C. The problem is, although these treatments may get the lead levels lower, they cannot stop the damage to the brain which has already happened.

The Governor of Michigan, and whatever state and city officials who signed off on allowing toxic water into homes in this state (and let me guess; most of these neighborhoods are probably in dire poverty), and any other states, should resign en masse, be prosecuted to the full extent of the law, and if convicted, do the hardest time imaginable.

WHO IN THEIR RIGHT MINDS DELIBERATELY POISONS CHILDREN, TO SAVE A FEW BUCKS?!?

There also needs to be a trust fund, perhaps at the national level, to take care of these people, because upon attaining adulthood, they will never be able to function or compete for what scarce jobs there are out there.

I can hardly begin to appreciate the anguish the parents of these kids must be feeling upon learning this, and the level of complete betrayal from their government they must be feeling right now.

Clean water is a basic human right, period, end of discussion.

AND NOW: “GENETICALLY MODIFIED MOSQUITOES JOIN THE FIGHT TO STOP ZIKA VIRUS”

The primary concern, de Mier said, was the uncertainty and lack of scientific data regarding potential the GM mosquitoes will pose long-term harm to Key West’s ecosystem and its inhabitants.

She and others who oppose the research also point out the potential risk of females being released along with the males, the possibility that the gene will mutate, and any unforeseen potential negative effects it might have on the area’s insects and wildlife.

Researchers, however, dismiss these concerns.

De Mier and her cohort in Key West aren’t the only skeptics. Earlier this year, Germany’s Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Biology looked at information from Oxitec’s trials in Malaysia and Grand Cayman, and accused the company of having a lack of transparency. Its findings suggest “deficits in the scientific quality of regulatory documents and a general absence of accurate experimental descriptions available before releases start.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The bottom line here is that these genetically engineered mosquitoes may well be responsible for the Zika outbreak in the first place.

Tampering with the very fabric of life can create an ELE (extinction level even) for humankind, and it is time that scientists and researchers face that reality with more than a little humility.

SPIES IN THE SKY

AMERICAN AND BRITISH INTELLIGENCE secretly tapped into live video feeds from Israeli drones and fighter jets, monitoring military operations in Gaza, watching for a potential strike against Iran, and keeping tabs on the drone technology Israel exports around the world.

Under a classified program code-named “Anarchist,” the U.K.’s Government Communications Headquarters, or GCHQ, working with the National Security Agency, systematically targeted Israeli drones from a mountaintop on the Mediterranean island of Cyprus. GCHQ files provided by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden include a series of “Anarchist snapshots” — thumbnail images from videos recorded by drone cameras. The files also show location data mapping the flight paths of the aircraft. In essence, U.S. and British agencies stole a bird’s-eye view from the drones.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The troubling questions are, where, precisely, is the Israeli government looking at using these armed drones, and to whom are they selling this technology?!?

They have a history - and track record - of selling to anyone who has the money to buy; North Korea, perhaps?!?

Zika freakout: the hoax and the covert op continue

Two: The TdaP vaccine:

This is a case of suspicious correlation. A study posted in the US National Library of Medicine, “Pertussis in young infants: a severe vaccine-preventable disease,” spells it out:

“…in late 2014, the [Brazilian] Ministry of Health announced the introduction of the Tdap vaccine for all pregnant women in Brazil.”

Obviously, pregnant women are the target group; they are giving birth to babies with smaller heads and brain damage, and the recommendation for them to take the vaccine was recent; 2014.

Barbara Loe Fisher, of the National Vaccine Information Center, writes:

“Drug companies did not test the safety and effectiveness of giving influenza or Tdap vaccine to pregnant women before the vaccines were licensed in the U.S and there is almost no data on inflammatory or other biological responses to these vaccines that could affect pregnancy and birth outcomes…

The Political Assassination of LaVoy Finicum?

According to a report on his own You Tube channel, LaVoy Finicum was killed on the evening of January 26, 2016 by a US special forces unit while the deceased Arizona rancher “was on his knees with his hands up.”

Finicum is said to have been shot “three times” in an episode that also included the arrest on Highway 395 in Oregon of some of the leadership of the Citizens for Constitutional Freedom. Nevada Assembly woman Michele Fiore also reported in a tweet that Finicum was shot by federal authorities with his hands up.

In a more recent report, North West Liberty News published an interview with Victoria Sharp who was in the “ambushed” car carrying the targeted entourage with LaVoy Finicum at the wheel. She said that Finicum was shot six extra times by special forces police after he was already downed by police gunfire.

FBI Release Oregon Video Footage Depicting Death of Robert Lavoy Finicum – But Questions Remain

On its own, this FBI drone footage would appear to support previous government and media claims by CNN, Washington Post and others that the victim was indeed “reaching towards his waistband” which gave federal and state police justification to unleash deadly force. However, it is still not completely clear from this aerial footage whether or not Finicum was holstered, and also whether or not he lowered his arms before or after he was shot multiple times and killed. Certainly, if any shots were fired, even in the vicinity, this might have prompted Finicum to reach for his weapon.

Lessons To Be Learned From The Tragic Shooting Death Of Oregon Protester LaVoy Finicum

The protesters at the Wildlife Refuge in Oregon were very committed, informed and aware of the many problems facing America. They took a stand to oppose the tyranny they saw. However, whether we're talking about the average American or libertarian/ Constitutional hard-liners who are completely fed up and drawn their line in the sand, there are certain things you have to do to protect yourself when dealing with police, if you want to live. Whether you have a donut, a pocket full of daisies or an AK47 under your jacket, if you reach in to your jacket during a confrontation with amped up Israeli-trained cops guess what? You'll SURELY be dead as dirt within seconds. People must understand that you have to be VERY, VERY CAREFUL in these type situations. Risk of death is imminent EVERY TIME you have any interaction with a cop, IN ANY SITUATION. Got it? Anyone who isn't fully aware of this is naive and is putting themselves in grave jeopardy.

Surprise, Surprise! Oregon State Police (Who Killed Lavon Finicum) Trained By Israelis

The killing of rancher Lavoy Finicum by the Oregon State Police made international news Tuesday, and in a very unusual move, the FBI quickly released the video of the shooting yesterday, which was filmed by an FBI helicopter. Finicum, whose final post on Twitter was a lovely rendition of 'Amazing Grace' hours before his death, was one the passionate protesters at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge for the past several weeks. Not surprisingly, the Oregon State Police and other law enforcement agencies across Oregon have been admittedly trained by Israeli military and have gone to Israel for training seminars.

Jim Willie: Both Our Allies and the American People Absolutely Hate Our Government

When it comes to politics, economics, social matters, or virtually any subject matter you can think of today, America has deep, deep, systemic problems, and we’re seeing just the beginning of people starting to lash out. Last night, the Bundy Militia’s takeover of a federal refuge in Burns, Oregon took a drastic turn for the worse when eight members of the militia’s leadership, including Ammon Bundy, were arrested after a brief shootout along the highway that ended with the death of one of Bundy’s crew. Allegedly the man shot was unarmed, and he was shot three times. The "ripple effect," or the "aftershock" of what is happening in Oregon remains to be seen, but it's safe to say there will be one…

Trump overshadows Republican debate even as he sits it out

Without Trump on stage, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush and

Both men have an eye on the Feb. 9 first-in-the-nation primary in New Hampshire, which comes on the heels of the Iowa caucuses on Monday and where an establishment Republican like them might have a better chance of standing out.

Senator Ted Cruz from Texas and Senator Marco Rubio from Florida, the two top challengers to Trump in Iowa, engaged in squabbles over immigration and national security and did not appear to threaten Trump's lead. He holds the edge over Cruz in polls of Iowa Republicans.

Trump's rivals mocked his decision to sit out the debate and found ways to criticise him.

EU on brink: Germany's biggest bank records shock losses risking economic RUIN of eurozone
GERMANY could force the European Union into ruin after Deutsche Bank's share price plunged following the country's biggest lender's first annual loss since the financial crisis

The German lender posted a full year loss of £5.1 billion (€6.8bn) on Thursday - higher than the expected €6.7bn million.

With losses of €2.1bn in the fourth quarter of 2015-16, fears of the entire eurozone toppling are becoming an increasing reality.

Germany, which has a GDP of $3.4bn is one of the six largest economies in the world and the fate of the eurozone relies heavily on its strong economy.

A Persian Gulf source says the Saudi strategy “will demolish the markets.” Another referred to a case of “maggots eating the carcass in the dark”; one just had to look at the rout in Wall Street, across Europe and in Hong Kong and Tokyo on Wednesday.

Where was the FBI during the armed standoff in Oregon? Out of sight, but listening and watching

As the armed occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon dragged on for most of January, local law enforcement was spread thin and federal agents were nowhere to be seen.

Behind the quiet facade, however, the FBI was running surveillance on the occupation and recording the activists’ public statements, mostly drawn from media reports and the activists' use of social media, while FBI agents encouraged locals to report their experiences with the new strangers in town.

Clinton Chief Of Staff Lost Her Personal Blackberry, Which Contained Classified Emails

While working as Hillary Clinton’s chief of staff at the State Department, Cheryl Mills lost her personal Blackberry, on which she sent emails that the State Department has determined contain classified information.

Records obtained by The Daily Caller through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit show Mills revealed that she lost her Blackberry in a March 20, 2010 email she sent to Bryan Pagliano, the State Department IT staffer who managed Clinton’s private email server.

CNN Will Air Trump Rally Opposite Fox News Debate

The fact that he will be on CNN will not really change that equation.

Why I Will Never Drink Another Starbucks Coffee Again: It Funds Planned Parenthood

Some of America’s top corporations have announced publicly that they do not support Planned Parenthood in light of revelations about their organ harvesting business. In July, Coca Cola, Ford Motor Company, the American Cancer Society, American Express and Xerox assured customers that even though they were listed as partners on Planned Parenthood’s website, they do not support them through donations.

Unfortunately, not all companies have followed suit. For example, pro-life customer Megan Fox wrote Starbucks a letter entitled, “Dear Starbucks, You Lost Me At Planned Parenthood”, after finding out they support the abortion company. She began her letter by explaining that she (like many Americans) loves their coffee and has been enjoying their products for years.

An American Amritsar - Judge Anna Von Reitz

We should have heard it at Ruby Ridge, and somehow, despite the facts, did not. A young Mother shot to death along with her baby and young son and the family dog for no reason by FBI Agents.

We should have heard it again at Waco, Texas. A private community of people invaded, gassed, fire bombed--- again, with no credible reason by federal agents of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms. Exactly where were the stockpiles of alcohol, tobacco, or firearms at Waco?

And now, a caravan of peaceful Americans on their way to a public meeting to discuss unlawful actions of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM)-- ambushed, murdered in cold blood, and subjected to false arrest by members of the FBI and "STATE" police. What "STATE" of Oregon would that be? A bankrupt corporate franchise of the French Corporation known as the UNITED STATES, or the actual state of the Union owed to the people of Oregon?

Entire sectors will no longer be employed, and desperate people will turn to riots, looting and unruly behavior. Some may even turn on the "Davos elite" and other ruling members of the oligarchy.

As the talking points of their latest discussions at Davos indicate, they are worried about the revolutionary potential as wave of mass unemployment prepares to hit.

Oregon Standoff Turns Violent; Leading Spokesman Dead

The standoff taking place in southeastern Oregon took a dramatic turn in the late afternoon hours on Tuesday, January 26.

According to local reports, Ammon Bundy, the leader of the occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, and a number of other individuals close to him are now in federal custody after being stopped by Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and Oregon State Police on US Highway 395 roughly 20 miles north of Burns, Oregon.

Robert “LaVoy” Finicum, who AMERICAN FREE PRESS interviewed while at the Refuge, was reportedly killed by law enforcement officers. Ryan Bundy, Ammon’s older brother, was reportedly wounded during the violent confrontation as well, and was subsequently taken into federal custody.

UNBELIEVABLE: Danish Teen FINED for Fending off Would Be Rapist with Pepper Spray!

The level of politically correct insanity and willful blindness surrounding the so-called “rapefugee” crisis hitting Europe is reaching a fever pitch of stupidity.

Most of these countries where this is taking place are countries where average citizens are not only not allowed to own guns, but they are also apparently not legally allowed to own any real means of protection at all.

Case in point: a seventeen-year-old Danish girl recently fended off a “dark-skinned” English speaking attacker who attempted to rape her with pepper spray. The man had knocked the girl to the ground and was unbuttoning her pants and attempting to forcibly undress her. She pulled out the spray and was able to get him off of her with it.

And that’s how it should be. A woman should be allowed to protect herself from a scumbag rapist!!!

Eyewitness Claims Rancher Was Murdered as Feds Surround Wildlife Refuge

With any controversial event, it’s usually safe to assume that the first accounts to reach the public are the least accurate. With enough time, the truth always rises to the top, and often stands in direct contrast to the initial version of events. What transpired yesterday between law enforcement and the leaders of the militia hunkered down in Malheur, is no exception.

The first sanitized reports arrived yesterday evening. Ammon Bundy and his brother, along with several other militia members and supporters, were on their way to a community meeting when the FBI and Oregon State Troopers pulled them over. They told the press that they were attempting to arrest the men, and one of their officers was forced to shot and kill LaVoy Finicum who had refused to surrender. Though reports vary, only a handful of shots were fired, which also led to the hospitalization of Ryan Bundy.

Staff at Paris Airport Angry after Finding Fake Bombs ordered by US Embassy

A security exercise gone wrong saw tempers flare in a Paris airport, after fake explosive devices were discovered by FedEx workers in a ripped package, sources told AFP.

Employees of the American courier service at Charles de Gaulle airport were shocked to find a pressure cooker filled with nuts and bolts inside a package in transit from the US to Tunisia.

On further inspection they discovered a container of other similar devices, along with what appeared to be detonators, said Frederic Petit, who represents the company’s employees for the CGT union.

The staff alerted authorities of “imminent danger,” and officials arrived to test the device using sniffer dogs and X-ray machines.

A security source at the airport said the devices were actually decoys bound for the US embassy in Tunisia that were being used for a training exercise.

The admiral in charge of Navy intelligence has not been allowed to see military secrets for years

For more than two years, the Navy’s intelligence chief has been stuck with a major handicap: He’s not allowed to know any secrets.

Vice Adm. Ted “Twig” Branch has been barred from reading, seeing or hearing classified information since November 2013, when the Navy learned from the Justice Department that his name had surfaced in a giant corruption investigation involving a foreign defense contractor and scores of Navy personnel.

Worried that Branch was on the verge of being indicted, Navy leaders suspended his access to classified materials. They did the same to one of his deputies, Rear Adm. Bruce F. Loveless, the Navy’s director of intelligence operations.

More than 800 days later, neither Branch nor Loveless has been charged. But neither has been cleared, either. Their access to classified information remains blocked.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why on earth has the Navy allowed this to fester in this way?!?

the only answer that makes sense is the scope of the corruption here is mind-blowing, that any prosecution of the case would forever shake the public's confidence in Naval acquisition programs.

As reported in November of the New York Times last year:

The U.S. Navy is being rocked by a bribery scandal that federal investigators say has reached high into the officer corps and exposed a massive overbilling scheme run by an Asian defense contractor that provided prostitutes and other kickbacks. Among those arrested on corruption charges are a senior agent for the Naval Criminal Investigative Service and a Navy commander who escaped Cambodia’s “killing fields” as a child only to make a triumphant return to the country decades later as the skipper of a U.S. destroyer. The investigation has also ensnared a Navy captain who was relieved of his ship’s command this month in Japan. The chief executive of the Singapore-based defense contractor, Glenn Defense Marine Asia, and another company official were arrested last month at a San Diego harborside hotel after federal investigators lured them to the United States by arranging a sham meeting with Navy officials, according to court records and people involved in the case. The unfolding investigation is shaping up as the biggest fraud case in years for the Navy. Federal prosecutors allege that Glenn Defense Marine, which has serviced and supplied Navy ships and submarines at ports around the Pacific for a quarter-century, routinely overbilled for everything from tugboats to fuel to sewage disposal.

BEX Alert!!! - "Report: LaVoy Finicum, armed with a handgun, reached for his waistband just before he was shot "

Everyone knew that LaVoy Finicum kept a Colt .45 on his hip.

That common knowledge could help explain how the occupier in Oregon died.

In the moments before he was shot by authorities Tuesday afternoon, Finicum led a high-speed getaway attempt. He then reached for his waistband, prompting authorities to open fire, according to a CNN report.

The report, which cites anonymous law enforcement officials but has not been confirmed by The Washington Post, is corroborated by a statement from an occupier who said he was traveling with Finicum at the time of the traffic stop.

Another self-described witness disputes that, saying that authorities opened fire before the getaway chase and that Finicum had his hands up when he was shot.

NYPD hopes more potent pepper spray will lead to fewer police shootings, some critics say upgrade is recipe for disaster

The NYPD hopes a more potent pepper spray will lead to fewer police shootings — but some critics say the upgraded aerosol is a recipe for disaster.

More than 19,000 cops so far have been given canisters of Sabre 5.0, a spray with a .67% concentration of major capsaicinoids, the chemicals that make peppers hot.

That’s more than three times the .21% concentration in the spray the NYPD has used for years. Both sprays are manufactured by Sabre Security Equipment Corp.

NYPD officials could not say how many times the new spray has been used in the six weeks or so it has been in use.

But they said that as the department works to track and investigate the use of force, it will know how often cops are using the spray, which is considered the preferable alternative to other uses of force from a physical takedown to shooting a gun.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Instead of an irritant, which can cause massive respiratory problems, why are police departments not looking at something that is a calmative, perhaps something quick-acting from the diazepam family?!?

It would seem a far more humane way to get someone to stop doing what they are doing. But then, humane and American policing are not in the same zip code in this country, and have not been for quite some time now.

NY Times - Cash Flowed to Clinton Foundation Amid Russian Uranium Deal

The article, in January 2013, detailed how the Russian atomic energy agency, Rosatom, had taken over a Canadian company with uranium-mining stakes stretching from Central Asia to the American West. The deal made Rosatom one of the world’s largest uranium producers and brought Mr. Putin closer to his goal of controlling much of the global uranium supply chain.

But the untold story behind that story is one that involves not just the Russian president, but also a former American president and a woman who would like to be the next one.

NYT: Global Warming Could Be Causing Malformed Babies In Brazil

The paper notes that researchers have suggested the Zika virus, which has stoked widespread panic in pregnant women in Mexico and Brazil, is likely the result of an upsurge in the mosquito population brought on by global warming. The carrier of the disease, a mosquito called the Aedes, is believed to carry other viruses, such as Dengue and Yellow fever.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The fact that GM versions of that exact mosquito were being released into the wild at that time is, of course, not to be considered as having anything to do with the problem.

Jan 28 08:46

Is the dreaded Zika virus another giant scam?

So we now have governments warning women not to get pregnant. A new form of depopulation. Don’t get pregnant. If you do, and a mosquito bites you, you could give birth to a severely damaged child. Not only that, we have massive advisories against travel, for pregnant women. And 200,000 soldiers in Brazil, the site of the upcoming Olympics, are going door to door and distributing information about this new “plague.” Are the soldiers also telling men and women not to have sex? Who knows?

So let’s take a little side trip to Scam City and examine the science behind the Zika virus and the assertion that it is causing birth defects.

Toronto film executive pulls support for York University film program over Israel mural

A Toronto film industry executive is pulling his company’s support for York University’s Cinema and Media Arts program due to a mural he said is “anti-Israel.”

“It made me sick to my stomach and very angry,” Paul Bronfman said this week when describing his initial reaction to learning of the portrait. “We live in an amazing city, an amazing country, and to have this happening under our noses is disgusting. It’s subtly anti-Semitic and anti-Israel. It’s anti-Canadian.”

The mural is currently displayed in the York University Student Centre. It shows a person looking at a bulldozer close to a building while holding rocks. The person is shown wearing what looks like a Palestinian flag with a map of Israel without its borders. At the bottom of the mural, the words “justice” and “peace” can be seen along with other text.
