Are Blue States Turning Red?

Hillary claims, a million more Americans have voted for her than any other Candidate but she is in a 2 Candidate Contest. On the other hand Trump has been in a contest, where up to 17 Candidates had participated and even now he is facing 2 other. It can be assumed if the situation was reverse and like Hillary, Trump was facing just one Republican Candidate and Hillary was facing up to 18 and now 2, Trump would also have a million to 2 million more votes than any other candidate.

Ted Cruz’s College Roommate from Hell

From the ensuing academic year Mazin apparently has never recovered. And since Cruz’s ascent to the national stage in 2012, when he was elected to the U.S. Senate from the Lone Star State, Mazin has been waging a Twitter crusade against him: “My freshman year college roommate Ted Cruz is going to be elected Senator,” he wrote in October 2012. “In case I hadn’t made it clear, he’s also a huge ***hole.”

Four years later, Mazin is still tweeting. Cruz has “no principles, no moral center, no values,” he tweeted in March. “Just ambition.” “Ted has no empathy and desires to control people.

He’s a bad person.” Cruz is “devious, hypocritical, unethical, pointlessly ambitious, [and] valueless.” He’s “creepy, unfunny, mean, [and] boring.”

And those are the more thoughtful criticisms. Cruz is also a “jackass,” a “d***head,” and “garbage.” His campaign manager, Jeff Roe, is a “sick f**k.”

We Can't Trust a Major American Police Department. That's a Problem.

This past year, in the shadow of the Laquan McDonald police shooting scandal, investigative reporters from The Guardian and their lawyers have exposed, in numerous articles, that Chicago's history of torture and cover-up is repeating itself, this time at Homan Square.

As the Guardian has documented, Homan Square, named after a notorious Chicago slumlord Samuel Homan, was, until recently, a secret site where thousands of people of color have been – and apparently still are – held and interrogated for hours, "off the books", often without being under arrest. They are handcuffed to a wall in dark and foreboding rooms and cells, with inconsistent access to food, drink or access to bathroom facilities. The Guardian's continuing investigation reveals that when this sensory deprivation does not yield sufficient cooperation, the police interrogators all too often employ physical brutality that meets the United Nations Convention Against Torture's definition of torture. Cases of tasering, which is a very real form of electric shock, suffocation, anal rape, beatings with batons, threats with a weapon and questionable deaths while in custody are now all on the public record. And, once again, we see police officers committing perjury and innocent victims being charged with crimes that they did not commit.

Flashback April 2015: Top medical journal, The Lancet, warns much published science is bogus, can't be trusted

A lot of what is published is incorrect. I am not allowed to say who made this remark because we were asked to observe Chatham House rules. We were also asked not to take photographs of slides. Those who worked for government agencies pleaded that their comments especially remain unquoted, since the forthcoming UK election meant they were living in purdah — a chilling state where severe restrictions on freedom of speech are placed on anyone on the government's payroll. Why the paranoid concern for secrecy and non-attribution? Because this symposium — on the reproducibility and reliability of biomedical research, held at the Wellcome Trust in London last week — touched on one of the most sensitive issues in science today: the idea that something has gone fundamentally wrong with one of our greatest human creations.

The case against science is straightforward:much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue.Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes,tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness. As one participant put it, “poor methods get results”.

15 Saudi ‘hijackers’ were CIA agents working for US: Scholar

Fifteen of the 9/11 “hijackers” from Saudi Arabia were CIA agents working for the United States government, which was seeking to destroy the Middle East for Israel and to double the American military budget, says Dr. Kevin Barrett, an American academic who has been studying the events of 9/11 since late 2003. Dr. Barrett, a founding member of the Scientific Panel for the Investigation of 9/11, made the remarks in a phone interview with Press TV on Wednesday, after a number of US lawmakers called on the White House to declassify documents that shed light on Saudi Arabia’s possible complicity in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. The former congressmen say the 28-page classified document proves two Saudi nationals who were behind the 9/11 attacks received support and assistance from Riyadh while in the United States.

Blind Palestinian karate team detained at Israeli border after return from Dubai tournament

Israel has detained the coach of a blind Palestinian karate team for “suspected involvement in terrorist activity" after he and five of his students were stopped by Israeli forces at the Erez border crossing earlier this week while trying to re-enter Gaza.

The five blind and vision-impaired students, all under 18 years old, were travelling with four sighted students from the same karate school on their way back from Dubai where they had been competing in an international tournament. One of the students’ mothers was also travelling with them.

Their coach, Hassan Al Ra’e, had intended to go to Dubai with the students but after crossing with them from Gaza into Israel and then the West Bank, he was unable to travel onwards, his brother, Nasser, told The National.

Landmark Vatican conference rejects just war theory, asks for encyclical on nonviolence

The participants of a first-of-its-kind Vatican conference have bluntly rejected the Catholic church's long-held teachings on just war theory, saying they have too often been used to justify violent conflicts and the global church must reconsider Jesus' teachings on nonviolence.
Members of a three-day event co-hosted by the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace and the international Catholic peace organization Pax Christi have also strongly called on Pope Francis to consider writing an encyclical letter, or some other "major teaching document," reorienting the church's teachings on violence.

"There is no 'just war,'" the some 80 participants of the conference state in an appeal they released Thursday morning.

"Too often the 'just war theory' has been used to endorse rather than prevent or limit war," they continue. "Suggesting that a 'just war' is possible also undermines the moral imperative to develop tools and capacities for nonviolent transformation of conflict."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Bravo, Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, and Pax Christi: well done!!!

I hope (and pray) Pope Francis decides to endorse this with an encyclical letter; this is a very positive outcome to this symposium, and having the weight of the church behind peace would be a wonderful evolution for the Catholic church in the 21st century.

Turkey Backed Anti-ISIS Offensive in North Syria a ‘Fiasco’

Pressing the US to abandon its support for the Kurdish YPG, the Turkish government has thrown considerable effort behind a group of rebel factions in the northern Aleppo Province to launch an offensive against ISIS, seeing that as a way to convince the US that non-Kurdish rebels can be successful too.

It didn’t take long for it to become a disaster. The rebels captured the town of al-Rai, and saw it as a major gain. Four days later, they lost the town back outright, and the ISIS counteroffensive pushed back even further, hitting the territory of the Turkmen-dominated rebels.

Not only did they not keep al-Rai, but the fighting has displaced some 30,000 civilians, who are all flocking to the Turkish border, and are by and large being prevented from crossing by Turkish forces, who don’t want any more refugees.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Turkish government, and military, get an F in tactics here; but moreover, the human cost in terms of the misery of refugees who cannot go home, and are not accepted into Turkey, after the mess Turkey created, is blatantly immoral, hypocritical, and unjust.

I think Erdogan has just demonstrated two things:

1. He had his conscience surgically removed before running for office.
2. He is pathologically incapable of thinking anything through to its logical conclusion.

And to NATO, a small memo: you had darned well better take a good, hard look at that second issue before you decide on defending Turkey militarily for whatever alleged reason.

Thousands to descend on London to demand David Cameron’s resignation

Thousands from across the UK are expected to gather in central London Saturday in protest of government austerity measures. They’ll also call for the resignation of Prime Minister David Cameron over revelations of offshore investment funds linked to his family.
The demonstration through the center of the capital will end on Trafalgar Square around 6pm.

The March for Health, Homes, Jobs and Education has been organized by the People's Assembly Against Austerity alongside several trade unions, including Unite. Organizers are demanding that David Cameron’s “vicious government” end its policy of austerity.

“They've attacked junior doctors and student nurses while privatizing the NHS. They plan to force all schools to become academies and teachers are now balloting to strike over pay and conditions. They've done nothing to address the growing housing crisis.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

GOOD! This couldn't happen to a more deserving British politician, in light of the Panama Papers, and his participation in tax-dodging schemes while demanding everyday Brits live in crippling austerity.

In Texas, some local GOPs call for statewide vote on secession

A handful of Texas Republican district or county conventions in March passed resolutions calling for a vote on secession, paving the way for a potentially awkward debate at the state GOP conference in May.
A Nederland-based pro-independence activist group, the Texas Nationalist Movement, said at least 22 of the hundreds of conventions passed secession items. Texas GOP chairman Tom Mechler said he "would be very surprised" if that many had indeed passed the conventions.
The Houston Chronicle reached out to GOP officials in the counties listed by the Nationalist Movement. Ten responded and all confirmed passage of the resolutions. An official count should be available from the Republican Party of Texas in early May.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looking at the insanity and corruption of the Federal government, who can blame thinking Texans for examining this possibility?!?

OF course, it won't end well, should this be passed; you're looking at a Federal government invasion, total martial law, and a US military occupation of the state.

But the embarrassment factor for the US government, at having had to do this, will create a "V for Vendetta" moment in this country.

And if you have not seen the movie, please rent it; it is a magnificent, cautionary tale of government overreach, and the ultimate public reaction to that overreach. (Warning; lots of violence, and totally not appropriate for children).

BILLION DOLLAR LAWSUITS FILED FOLLOWING DEUTSCHE BANK'S ADMISSION OF GOLD, SILVER RIGGING

Barely a day had passed since the historic admission of gold and silver price rigging by Deutsche bank, which as we reported on Thursday was settled with not only "valuable monetary consideration", but Deutsche's "cooperation in pursuing claims" against other members of the cartel, i.e., exposing the manipulation of other cartel members, and the class action lawsuits have begun.

Overnight, two class action lawsuits seeking $1 billion in damages on behalf of Canadian gold and silver investors were launched in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice.

The first class action alleges that the defendants, including The Bank of Nova Scotia, conspired to manipulate prices in the silver market under the guise of the benchmark fixing process, known as the London Silver Fixing, for a fifteen-year period.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Bring the popcorn!

US PLANS TO GIVE MORE WEAPONS TO AL QAEDA-LINKED REBELS IN SYRIA

Remember, the US is not intervening in Syria. According to The Wall Street Journal, the CIA has drawn up plans to provide more-powerful weapons to the so-called moderate Syrian rebels if the current truce in Syria collapses. While the CIA has been arming rebels for years, this new plan would included sending advanced weapons that could be used against Syrian and Russian aircraft and artillery.

This latest plan, labeled “Plan B” in the WSJ piece, comes after the US supported flooding Syria with weapons from Saudi Arabia and other regional powers. The weapons were given initially to groups like ISIS before being sent primarily to “moderate” rebel groups such as Al Nusra: the Al-Qaeda affiliate in Syria.

The US also has its own arms program, which has been sent into networks that include Al Nusra, leading some to wonder if the US has decided to partner with Al Qaeda, much as it did in the 1980s to fight the Soviet Union in Afghanistan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to politely remind the US government that doing the same, thing, in the same way, and yet expecting a different outcome, is a classical definition of insanity.

And trust me, the US government is doing everything in its power to insure that the cease-fire doesn't hold.

Russia, of course, has other ideas.

And war with Russia right now would be a lousy idea, because at this point in its history, the US military doesn't have the weaponry, the troop strength, the money, or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war with Russia (and/or China).

“SMILE IN MY FACE ONE MORE TIME!” COP TERRORIZES CHILD ON SCHOOL BUS FOR NOT WORSHIPPING HIM

A student on a bus in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania caught a cop on video angrily berating a kid for smiling. The incident highlights the modern reality in public schools where blue-clad soldiers of law with badges and guns are a normal, everyday presence.

In the video, uploaded to Facebook, an unidentified police officer stalks down the aisle of the bus, directing his rage at a student in the back who performed the outrageous act of smiling.

“You think you’re funny…you think you’re funny.”

As he reaches the student, the cop leans over the boy and says, “Smile in my face one more time, I’m gonna drag your ass off this bus and back to that fucking police car.”

The student is not in view of the camera, but can be heard saying, “Alright, alright.”

“Don’t smile one more time!” the cop says as he leaves the bus.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The contemporary school experience is not at all focused on learning, but submission to authority, no matter how much emotional and physical pain and violence that produces.

If you want your child to really be educated, take them out of the public school, and home school them.

If you live in a state that is anti-home schooling, move to a state where this is a respected alternative.

School districts are paid by the State and Federal government based on the number of students in their district; disable the funding through keeping kids safe and home schooled.

If that will not work, find a private school, or a magnet school in your area with a reputation for turning out kids who have the skills to make them competitive in later life.

Not only do your kid's educational lives depend on this;but also, the future of our society, as a place where critical thinking, and good decision making, are encouraged.

Trump likely to win West Virginia but lose delegates

Trump is well-positioned for a resounding victory in West Virginia’s May 10 primary, but his win will be accompanied by a delegate selection process stacked in favor of people with last names at the beginning of the alphabet — rather than his most committed supporters.

It’s a quirk of West Virginia’s mind-bogglingly complex delegate election process that has the Trump campaign on red alert and seems likely to leave the mogul with weaker support at the national convention than he’s expected to earn in the state’s primary. It’s yet another convoluted primary system likely to add fuel to Trump’s complaints that the rules of the Republican nomination process are rigged.

As if threatening government force to extort money from drivers who exceed an arbitrary limit of speed on the highway is not bad enough, police in California will begin issuing tickets to speeding bicyclists as well.

Earlier this month, Marin County parks officials launched a new enforcement program to enforce an arbitrary speed limit on bicycles.

DOCUMENTS CONFIRM ERIC HOLDER’S ROLE IN FAST AND FURIOUS COVER-UP

For anyone who, thanks to the Obama administration’s years of stonewalling, has forgotten about Fast and Furious, here’s the short version. In 2010, a U.S. Customs and Border Patrol Agent was killed while on patrol near the Mexican border. The only two firearms found at the scene were semi-automatic rifles the Obama-Holder Justice Department allowed to “walk” as part of Fast and Furious, a firearms trafficking operation. That operation allowed approximately 2,000 firearms to flow illegally into the hands of Mexican cartel associates.

When the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform tried to investigate the scandal, Team Obama stonewalled. First, it denied that law enforcement officers allowed straw purchasers to buy firearms illegally in the United States with the intent to traffic them without apprehension. Almost a year later, it finally admitted that this is precisely what had happened.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, the very same government that says law-abiding Americans may not own assault style weapons (and given their way, any guns at all) spent YOUR tax dollars sending military style weapons to Mexican drug criminals.

Just keep that in mind when you sign that 1040-I-am-your-slave form!

The Little-Known D.C. Holiday That’s Giving You More Time To File Your Taxes

Although most Americans know that April 15 is Tax Day, they may not realize it’s not a firm deadline this year. Your taxes aren’t actually due until next week — thanks to a little-known D.C. law that is invigorating the nation’s capital to push for more independence.

This year, the deadline for filing taxes is being pushed back to Monday, April 18 to accommodate Emancipation Day, a holiday celebrated in Washington, D.C. that commemorates the anniversary of the abolition of slavery in the city.

Emancipation Day is usually celebrated on April 16, which is the date that President Abraham Lincoln freed about 3,100 slaves in D.C. back in 1862. But that date falls on a Saturday this year. Emancipation Day is instead being marked on Friday, April 15 — which prompted the IRS to move back the official tax-filing deadline.

So, to celebrate emancipation, the modern slaves get a few more days to polish their slave chains.

Half-truth Hillary finally exposed: This was the debate where Bernie Sanders changed the Democratic Party for good

What always disappointed me the most about President Obama was how he never even tried to change the language of politics that had been established in the eight years of the Bush presidency.

From immigration (on which he never articulated a different rhetoric than the punitive law-and-order one put into effect by his predecessor) to civil liberties to war crimes to inequality to health care to race relations to trade, he has kept to the establishment line on all substantive policy issues.

And that's where Bernie Sanders has succeeded so brilliantly. Sanders has managed to draw level with Hillary Clinton in the national polls, and seriously threatens to upset the carefully balanced apple cart if he can pull out a win in New York. As a result, he has pushed the establishment to acknowledge, at least rhetorically, the grievances of the powerless. That is no mean accomplishment, and he and his supporters should feel proud for having come this far.

Clinton's Pro-Free Trade Policies Lead to Wider Illegal Money Laundering in Panama

In 2011, President Obama and Hillary Clinton, then Secretary of State, sold the U.S./Panama Free Trade Agreement as a fix for Panama's secret tax haven and money laundering operations. Obama asserted at the time: "Thanks to the leadership of President Martinelli, there have been a range of significant reforms in banking and taxation in Panama. And we are confident now that a free trade agreement would be good for our country."

Last week, President Obama appeared to be singing a different tune. Obama said that activities like those exposed by the release of the eleven million plus Panama Papers were a result of poorly designed laws. However, some analysts say that the relevant regulations were not exactly poorly designed, but were skillfully concocted to facilitate certain privileged interests.

Thus, preserving "scientific integrity" would not mean keeping the scientific process from going awry, but keeping scientific outcomes in line with policy.

RUSSIA HAS ANSWER FOR WESTERN COLOURED REVOLUTION!

Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed a series of 5 April presidential decree on "transforming" the Army of the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MVD) to the new Federal service of the National Guard (FSVNG) and the transfer of 187,571 troops in FSVNG.

Putin took advantage of this reorganization to solve several problems, ie. to ensure robustness against political threats from within.

Protesters who blockaded London arms trade fair acquitted after judge sees evidence of illegal weapons on sale

The campaigners, who chained themselves outside the ExCeL centre, had been charged by the Crown Prosecution Service with blocking a highway.

But the court heard evidence from human rights groups and arms trade experts explaining the nature and possible end destinations of the weapons on sale at the fair.

Witnesses described the role of the arms trade in facilitating the repressive Bahrani regime, in Saudi Arabia’s bombing campaign over Yemen, and with Turkey’s internal repression of its Kurdish population.

The judge said the evidence of illegal weapons sales had been left unchallenged by the prosecution and that such sales would potentially break arms control laws.

Driven mad by the horror of war: A shattering new book lays bare the extent of the mental torment the Somme exacted 100 years ago... and how pitiless top brass covered it up

The British Army doctor serving in a casualty station just behind the front line in France knew ‘shell shock’ when he saw it.

Men in the trenches whose minds had gone under the barrage of explosives falling on their heads from enemy guns, or by being steeped in so much gore and misery for months on end, had a haunted look about them.

‘They are exhausted, their faces twitch and hands and arms shake constantly,’ he told his wife in a letter home. They were unable to answer the simplest of questions, their eyes were glassy and bulged out of their sockets, their skin was yellow, their teeth chattered, they swallowed constantly. Some could not speak at all. Others just stared into space without comprehension.

And in the summer of 1916, to his alarm, there were more and more of them reporting to him with these catatonic symptoms.

Obama and Yellen Are Planning to Implement Debtor Prisons/FEMA Camps

I have just found out that the Federal Reserve met secretly with Obama at the Pentagon and members of the Joint Chiefs. Vice-President Biden was in attendance as well. This speaks to the gravity of the situation, because the President and the Vice-President almost never attend the same meetings for security reasons. Also, it is highly unusual for the President to ever meet with the Federal Reserve. The Federal tells the President what to do. So, one has to ask themselves, what does the Federal Reserve need, from the President, that they cannot supply for themselves? Answer: They need the use of the President’s military assets.

Craig Murray: The Telegram Criticising Bush That Got Me Sacked (as a British diplomat)

As this blog is now read daily by tens of thousands of people who had not heard of me before, some idea of where I come from might be in order. After a diplomatic career of rapid promotion (senior civil service age 36, my first Ambassadorship in Uzbekistan age 42) my opposition to Bush/Blair’s immoral and counter-productive foreign policy got me sacked.

This telegram (diplomatic communications are called that; cable in the USA) I am with retrospect very proud to have sent. To have made at the time the observation that the Bush/Blair policy of invasion, oppression and torture would not suppress fundamentalism, but would create it, was prescient. I should say I understood very well I would be sacked. Some things are worth being sacked for.

Brown’s book with its revelations of CIA drug smuggling through Arkansas’ Mena Airport with Bill Clinton’s apparent knowledge and complicity and was reminded by Brown in his book that Tyrrell was one of the few mainstream journalists who made any effort to push the story forward. A couple of others were Sally Denton, who wrote the Penthouse magazine article, “The Crimes of Mena” with Roger Morris and John Cummings who helped Terry Reed tell his story, Compromised: Clinton, Bush, and the C.I.A, and if we want to count an Englishman as a mainstream journalist, Ambrose Evans-Pritichard in The Secret Life of Bill Clinton: The Unreported Stories.

Turkish border forces ‘fire live rounds at Syrian refugees’ fleeing Isis fighting

Human Rights Watch, who made the claim, has called on Turkey to halt the shooting at Syrian civilians, adding that fresh fighting between Isis and armed opposition groups in northern Aleppo has resulted in the displacement of 30,000 people in just 48 hours.

The human rights advocacy group, citing international aid workers and heads of displaced person camps near the Turkish border, adds that three of the refugee camps are now deserted as a result of the fighting.

“As civilians flee Isis fighters, Turkey is responding with live ammunition instead of compassion,” said Gerry Simpson, senior refugee researcher at Human Rights Watch.

Did Tony Blair get special treatment from the taxman? Calls for an inquiry over claims HMRC chiefs' advice helped former PM set up a secret trust to run his multi-million pound business empire 

Tony Blair is facing calls for an inquiry into allegations he got special treatment from Britain's top taxman and senior staff when setting up a secret trust to run his multi-million business empire.

Former Home Secretary David Davis called for the probe after the man who set up the former Prime Minster's business affairs claimed head of HMRC Dave Hartnett was approached for advice.

Two of Blair's advisers claimed they had access to senior HMRC staff when setting up his trust before he left office, and were able to ask how they would be treated for tax purposes.

FLASHBACK BEX ALERT - Islamic State operating in Mexico just 8 miles from U.S. border

The Islamic State terror group is operating a camp in the northern Mexican state of Chihuahua, just eight miles from the U.S. border, Judicial Watch reported Tuesday.

Citing sources that include a “Mexican Army field grade officer and a Mexican Federal Police Inspector,” the conservative watchdog group reported that the Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL, is organizing only a few miles from El Paso, Texas, in the Anapra neighborhood of Juárez and in Puerto Palomas.

Judicial Watch sources said that “coyotes” working for the notorious Juarez Cartel are smuggling Islamic State terrorists across the U.S. border between the New Mexico cities of Santa Teresa and Sunland Park, as well as “through the porous border between Acala and Fort Hancock, Texas.”

Saudi Arabia wants US to kill 9/11 bill, threatens to dump US assets worth $750 bn

Saudi Arabia appears to be blackmailing the US, saying it would sell off American assets worth a 12-digit figure sum in dollars if Congress passes a bill allowing the Saudi government to be held responsible for the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Blackmail is perhaps too strong a word (although the western media will use it to demonize Saudi Arabia). I think "self defense" is more apt. Saudi Arabia knows that the US links 9-11 to every nation it wants to invade. First it was Afghanistan, then Iraq (after which George W. Bush admitted on TV Iraq had nothing to do with 9-11).

Saudi Arabia now finds themselves in the croshairs of the US war machine!

To find out if you are being lied to, look for what should be there and isn't, and what isn't there is a motive for Saudi Arabia to attack the United States on 9-11. Saudi Arabia has grown very rich off of the United States with the petrodollar deal. And they have invested much of that money in the United States. Why would Saudi Arabia do anything that would risk having the United States confiscate that money or end the lucrative petrodollar arrangement? Especially without some compelling reason? And as the Saudi threat confirms, if Saudi Arabia really did want to harm the United States they would not need to crash airplanes into buildings, all they need do is take their investment funds back and the US economy would implode. The resulting economic devastation would make the loss of the World Trade Towers seem like a minor inconvenience in comparison! And it would be perfectly legal for Saudi Arabia to do so.

And let us be honest, it wasn't Saudis who were arrested for cheering and clapping while the towers came crashing down, it was Mossad agents. Israeli owned companies like Odigo received advance warning of the attack. Saudi companies did not.

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice (or thrice) shame on me!

Scientists have published the first images of what the human brain looks like under the influence of LSD, one of the most powerful drugs ever created.

What’s more, the new study by Imperial College London explores what researchers say are potential medical uses for the illegal psychedelic known as acid, including treating mental health disorders.

“For brain researchers, studying how psychedelic drugs such as LSD alter the ‘normal’ brain state is a way to study the biological phenomenon that is consciousness,” David Nutt, a neuropsychopharmacologist at Imperial College London and senior researcher on the study, told the science journal Nature.

“We ultimately would also like to see LSD deployed as a therapeutic tool.”

Nemtsov & The End Of The British Empire

The February 28th, 2015 assassination of Russian opposition leader and former Deputy Prime Minister Boris Nemtsov as he crossed a bridge near the Kremlin will surely be well-utilized by Western lapdog media in their ongoing effort to slander Vladimir Putin and Russia.

But any thinking person will know that this professional killing was not carried out by Putin, who has vowed a thorough investigation of the incident. It was likely another in a series of desperate moves by the British MI6, who work for the Crown and the Rothschild-led City of London bankers.

The assassination occurred just three days after Britain announced it would send advisors to train Ukraine’s military, which in recent weeks was routed by Donbass revolutionaries, forcing the Ukrainian regime into signing the Minsk Peace Agreement.

UCLA Law Prof's Long Legal Fight Over Access To California Bar Admissions Data Headed To Trial

It was a decade ago when a UCLA law professor known for his critique of affirmative action first asked the State Bar of California to give him a trove of data on people who applied to practice law in the state.

Professor Richard H. Sander still hasn’t gotten the state bar to turn over the information he wants. But his long legal effort in pursuit of it may have reached a turning point this week when a judge said his case could go to trial over the objections of the state bar.

Mr. Sander is the academic most associated with the “mismatch” theory about affirmative action, the idea that racial and other kinds of admissions preferences can have unintended consequences by putting students in academic settings for which they’re not prepared.

Facebook Employees Asked Mark Zuckerberg If They Should Try to Stop a Donald Trump Presidency

But what’s exceedingly important about this question being raised—and Zuckerberg’s answer, if there is one—is how Facebook now treats the powerful place it holds in the world. It’s unprecedented. More than 1.04 billion people use Facebook. It’s where we get our news, share our political views, and interact with politicians. It’s also where those politicians are spending a greater share of their budgets.

And Facebook has no legal responsibility to give an unfiltered view of what’s happening on their network.

“Facebook can promote or block any material that it wants,” UCLA law professor Eugene Volokh told Gizmodo. “Facebook has the same First Amendment right as the New York Times. They can completely block Trump if they want. They block him or promote him.”

Budget cuts leaving Marine Corps aircraft grounded

Today, the vast majority of Marine Corps aircraft can’t fly. The reasons behind the grounding of these aircraft include the toll of long wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, the fight against ISIS and budget cuts precluding the purchase of the parts needed to fix an aging fleet, according to dozens of Marines interviewed by Fox News at two air stations in the Carolinas this week.

The bad news is that it's going to snow... a lot. The good news (maybe) is that it's going to snow a lot over the weekend. So, at least most of you don't have to go to work? Not good news if you had any outdoor plans though.

CDC likely fabricating link between Zika virus and microcephaly cases; admits people self-immunize against Zika and that 'no single piece of evidence provides conclusive proof'

Despite the media frenzy over Zika, the CDC admits on its own website that people self-immunize against the virus.

"People usually don't get sick enough to go to the hospital, and they very rarely die of Zika," says the CDC's Zika information page. "For this reason, many people might not realize they have been infected. Once a person has been infected, he or she is likely to be protected from future infections."

In other words, a Zika virus infection usually produces no symptoms, requires no hospitalization and builds self-immunity against future Zika exposure. The CDC refuses to describe it this way, of course, because there's a fortune to be made spreading Zika scare stories and selling Zika vaccines to people who largely don't need them. The visual shock factor of babies with shrunken heads makes the media frenzy an automatic success, even if those shrunken heads were caused by something else entirely.

“RED LIGHT ROBIN HOOD” HERO STRIKES AGAIN, RISKS YEARS IN JAIL DESTROYING RED LIGHT CAMERAS

Last year, 42-year-old Stephen Ruth was arrested for disabling traffic cameras, and even making YouTube videos of himself in the act, showing other people how they too can disable traffic cameras fairly easily. As soon as the video went viral, Ruth quickly became known as the “Red Light Robin Hood” and was soon arrested by police. In a testament to his dedication, almost 8 months later, and he’s at it again, and arrested again. Ruth, now 43, was arrested right after a CBS 2 report was published in which he admitted to disabling dozens of cameras over the weekend. “I cut the cable wires, making it useless,” Ruth said. “I’ve made it dysfunctional, just like the whole red light camera program.”

BRITAIN’S SECRET ASSASSINATIONS PROGRAMME AND EXTENDED KILL LIST

An extraordinary story has just emerged from the human rights charity reprieve.org.uk who, as they say “help people who suffer extreme human rights abuses at the hands of the world’s most powerful governments”. Their recently published report entitled Britain’s Kill List accuses the Conservative government of extreme deception of parliament and therefore all citizens of Britain and the world more widely. Officially, Britain has never had a so-called ‘kill list’ but David Cameron had to admit to a limited extra judicial assassinations programme a few months ago, which we reported. There was little establishment media coverage and even less public response. But no-one thought this programme was as extensive and broad as has just been unearthed.

THE REVOLT OF THE DEBT SLAVES HAS STARTED

If we could just get consumers to borrow more so that they spend money they don’t have on things they don’t need in order to boost GDP and corporate profits, all would be fine. That’s the current meme among economists. Since 68.5% of US GDP is related to personal consumption expenditures, boosting consumer spending is seen as crucial. Since wages at the lower 75% are crummy and have not been rising enough to keep up with inflation, the only other way to prod consumers into spending more is to bamboozle them into borrowing more and blowing this moolah instantly.

The ‘Credibility’ Illusion

What surprised me most about the Iraq War wasn’t how wrong the expectation of happy Iraqis showering American troops with flowers was or even how badly the war would turn out – all that was predictable and indeed was predicted. But what I didn’t expect was that the U.S. government would ever admit that there were no WMD stockpiles.

As Bernie Sanders attempts an upset in New York's April 19th primary, he has begun to increase his focus on the issues of fracking and climate change.

And since the state of New York banned fracking in 2015 and a recent Gallup poll reports only 25% of Democrats nationwide support fracking this would appear to be smart politics.

EXCLUSIVE: Colorado Caucus Volunteers: Ballot Errors Hurt Trump Delegate Candidates, Could Have Violated State Rules

Volunteers at the Colorado Republican Assembly are coming forward with evidence to indicate that their state’s delegate selection process was riddled with errors that disadvantaged some Donald Trump supporters who were running to become national delegates.

"A Totally Corrupt, Rigged System": GOP Plans to Strip Trump of Delegates in Indiana & Wyoming Too

First, Colorado changed the rules in order to hand all of its delegates over to Ted Cruz without a traditional primary vote, then told the people, "It's the rules" (after they were changed without explanation).

Now the GOP in Indiana and Wyoming are plotting similar ways to ensure Trump doesn’t get any of their delegates.

BREAKING: Clinton’s Benghazi Phone Records Just Released

Judicial Watch announced today it has obtained new documents from the Department of State containing the telephone transcripts from the evening of September 11, 2012, in which then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton informs then-Egyptian Prime Minister Hisham Kandil that the deadly terrorist attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi “had nothing to do with the film.” The documents include previously unreleased telephone transcripts with world leaders about the Benghazi attack.

Clinton said, “We know the attack in Libya had nothing to do with the film. It was a planned attack – not a protest.” Kandil responded, “You’re not kidding. Based on the information we saw today we believe that group that claimed responsibility for this is affiliated with al-Qaeda.”

Boom! Then why did they blame some crappy YouTube video?

Mattress that can tell if your spouse is having an affair: Hi-tech model senses 'suspicious activity' before telling owner via an app if it is being used

From helping to relieve backache to regulating temperatures between the sheets and helping to prevent snoring, mattresses have become seriously high-tech these days.

Now they can even help detect if a partner is cheating.

Costing £1,200, the Spanish-designed ‘smartress’ allows mistrusting spouses who are away from home to check their smartphones to find out if the mattress is in use and how many people are on it.

"Washington is still continuing its military supports for the terrorists in Iraq," Spokesman of Iraq's Ansarullah al-Nujaba Movement Hashem al-Moussavi told FNA on Wednesday.

He reiterated that al-Nujaba Movement forces are collecting documents, photos and videos of supplies airdropped by the US-led coalition forces for the ISIL terrorists in Iraq.

"Our forces have filmed the US aircraft while dropping military aids for the besieged ISIL terrorists," al-Moussavi said.

Breaking: The GOP Made A Huge Announcement… People Will Be FURIOUS!

It was only yesterday that a top RNC official announced that conservative businessman Donald Trump could secure the nomination with fewer than 1,237 delegates before the RNC convention later this summer in Cleveland, Ohio.

Is that a rule change? Hardly, but Randy Evans was assuming that it was likely Trump would win the first ballot with 1,000+ delegates.

Now, the RNC is signaling to the political establishment that it’s ready to accept Trump as the nominee, and they are warning leaders not to mess with the convention rules in a last minute attempt to “steal” the election. Peter Feaman, another RNC committeeman who is on the powerful Rules Committee, made the announcement on a recent conference call. He noted that looming suggested changes to the convention would make it look like they are rigging the process…

Sanders and Clinton Square Off in Brooklyn, Who Won?

The debate, broadcast on CNN, is likely the last time the pair will meet. The negotiations over the debate itself played out publicly, with the typically behind-the-scenes dealing becoming a proxy fight for the Democratic Party itself. Officials at the Democratic National Committee were exasperated by the whole process and were only half-heartedly considering adding more debates between the two warring candidates.
