"Each of you, Jew and Gentile alike, who has not already enlisted in this sacred war should do so now and here. It is not sufficient that you should buy no goods made in Germany. You must refuse to deal with any merchant or shopkeeper who sells any German--made goods or who patronises German ships or shipping... we will undermine the Hitler regime and bring the German people to their senses by destroying their export trade on which their very existence depends." -- Samuel Undermeyer, in a Radio Broadcast on WABC, New York, August 6, 1933. Reported in the New York Times, August 7, 1933.

CDC planning new travel-related measures to fight Ebola

CDC Director Tom Frieden didn’t say whether the new recommendations would include a ban on flights from the three West African countries that have suffered an Ebola outbreak. But he did say the steps are related to travel, and said he knows many Americans are worried about how international travel could contribute to an outbreak in the United States.

Gov Emergency Manager: “Ebola Outbreak is Being Conducted On Purpose; Violates All Protocols”

To say that the handling of the Ebola crisis from the get-go is a disaster would be an understatement. For months, as the virus took hold in town-after-town, country-after-country in West Africa medical professionals and emergency services experts warned that unless drastic containment measures were implemented it would eventually make it’s way to Europe, the United States and the rest of the world.

It is now clear that all containment efforts, if we can call them that, have failed to prevent the spread of the virus.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I go with Occam's razor on this one; meaning total incompetence. The handling of Ebola matches the US Government's ineptitude in handling Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy, the Gulf Oil disaster, and Fukushima.

3D printer for creating untraceable AR-15 rifles hits market

The US does allow for creating a firearm from parts or kits, according to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), which states: “[An] unlicensed individual may make a 'firearm' as defined in the GCA for his own personal use, but not for sale or distribution.”

As a way to get around that law, manufacturers can make a semi-finished lower receiver that “isn’t technically a gun, but gets as close to the line as possible,” Ars Technica reported. The metal piece is usually 80 percent finished, and can be purchased from a variety of companies. The Ghost Gunner machine will finish the lower receiver, and then customers can purchase the rest of the AR-15 parts online, without being subjected to waiting periods or background checks.

Michael Bloomberg knighted by the Queen - just don't call him Sir Mike

Michael Bloomberg, the billionaire philanthropist and former mayor of New York, has been made an honorary knight by the Queen.

The 72-year-old American was knighted in honour of his "prodigious entrepreneurial and philanthropic endeavours", the British embassy announced.

Mr Bloomberg, a well-known Anglophile with a £12 million house in Knightsbridge's Cadogan Square, will not be able to style himself "Sir Mike" because he is not a British citizen.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How about 'Sir Asshole?"

Technically, he can be called "Sir Michael" while on British soil. Good reason for him to move there.

Defense Department Admits US Troops In Liberia Will "Come In Contact" With Ebola-Infected Individuals

With boots-on-the-ground heading to Liberia to help 'manage' the anarchic dystopia that a frightened nation has become, General David Rodriguez (Commander, US Africa Command) held a briefing today to explain US troops' role:

QUESTION: Will they be in contact with individuals or just specimens?
RODRIGUEZ: They come in contact with the individuals.

Of course this was followed by a stream of qualifiers that all protection possible will be taken (just like the nurses in Madrid?)

Why Won’t Obama Ban Air Travel From Countries Where Ebola Is Out Of Control?

Why does Barack Obama refuse to take even the most basic steps to protect Americans from Ebola? Even though it has already been demonstrated that Ebola can be brought over to the United States by a passenger on an airplane, Obama refuses to do anything that would even restrict air travel from nations where Ebola is spiraling out of control. Back in September, Obama said that it was "unlikely" that any individual with Ebola could get through the "extensive screening" at our airports and pose a threat to the general population. But he was wrong. That has already happened. And yet the official White House position is that there is "no consideration of a travel ban" at this point. What possible explanation is there for such gross negligence?

Webmaster's Commentary:

“Genetic Strains of Ebola that have Never been Seen Before”. Media Lies and US Government Coverup

The current outbreak (which actually began on or before December, 2013) presents genetic strains of Ebola that have never been seen before. The Guinea variant of Ebola was itself novel enough to form its own clade. Now, via Recombinomics and with respect to Sierra Leone, we have:

“The June Sierra Leone sequences have evidence of some drift from the March sequences from Guinea. A prior Zaire sub-clade, which was found in apes and a chimpanzee and was associated with an outbreak in Gabon in 2002 had strong evidence of recombination, which raises concerns of more evolution in the current sub-clade, which has produced a record number of reported Ebola cases and deaths.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is only a matter of when, and not if, we have an ebola outbreak in the US, and that is something those tasked with the responsibility of attempting to keep Americans safe from disease outbreaks do not seem to be taking very seriously right now, which concerns me.

Walmart Cuts Health Care Coverage For Most Part-Timers In Wake Of Obamacare

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. plans to eliminate health insurance coverage for some of its part-time U.S. employees in a move aimed at controlling rising health care costs of the nation's largest private employer.

Wal-Mart told The Associated Press that starting Jan. 1, it will no longer offer health insurance to employees who work less than an average of 30 hours a week. The move affects 30,000 employees, or about 5 percent of Wal-Mart's total part-time workforce, but comes after the company already had scaled back the number of part-time workers who were eligible for health insurance coverage since 2011.

"We had to make some tough decisions," Sally Welborn, Wal-Mart's senior vice president of benefits, told The Associated Press.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And what do you want to bet that starting 1 January 2015, NO ONE WILL BE WORKING OVER 30 HOURS AT WAL-MART?!?

Sometimes, workers may have pre-existing conditions which may make it impossible to find adequate health insurance, particularly with what Wal-Mart pays them.

Corporations, in their lust for profitability over everything else, tend to have the morals of a trout; this decision makes that painfully clear on the part of to Board of Directors at Wal-Mart.

The new AIG lawsuit should enrage every American taxpayer

Imagine you have a friend who drinks a lot and often.

Until now, they always seem to have a good time. He tells the best stories, gets all the girls. He’s the life of the party.

Then, one day, he wrecks his car. And you and some buddies, who happened to be in the neighborhood, see your pal trapped. Of course, you rush to the rescue. You try to break open the door with a tire iron. Ultimately, you smash the window and pull the poor fellow out. And just when you’d think this guy would sober up and see the recklessness of his ways, he looks you in the eye and says without blinking: “You need to pay for my door and windshield.”

Countries warn of risk of war as new Nile treaty delays

Countries that share the Nile waters on Monday warned that the region could go to war unless a new treaty on the use of the Nile waters is drawn up.

Nile Basin countries have increased pressure on Egypt to get back to the negotiating table for discussions on how the waters of the world’s longest river can be used.

On Monday, participants gathered at Nairobi’s InterContinental Hotel for the Fourth Nile Basin Development Forum warned the region might face conflicts over water in future if a new agreement is not reached.

“We are hoping that cooperation around the Nile is going to increase security and stability. The key words are equitable and responsible use of the Nile resources.

“That is the only way we can do this peacefully. Otherwise if we don’t do it, we are going to be at war because of water,” Prof Judi Wakhungu, the Environment, Water and Natural Resources Cabinet Secretary said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let us hope that these negotiations go responsibly and smoothly.

IF not, the world may well have another war zone on its hands, and THAT...could get very messy indeed.

Poland urges NATO to push ahead with missle shield

Poland on Monday urged NATO's new secretary general to push ahead with a missile shield system amid the West's worst standoff with Russia since the Cold War.

"We firmly support the creation of this (missile shield) system as a pan-NATO one because only this makes deep sense both politically and in terms of defence," Poland's President Bronislaw Komorowski said at a joint press conference with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg.

The Western defence alliance insists the role of the planned shield is a "purely defensive" response to external threats, notably from so-called "rogue states", and is in no way directed against Russia.

But Moscow has taken a dim view of the project, seeing it as a security threat on its very doorstep.

The escalation of tensions with Russia since January over its role in the Ukraine crisis has sounded the alarm on NATO's eastern flank in countries that were under Moscow's thumb during the Soviet era.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Excuse me, but WHAT Russian "...role in the Ukraine crisis..." are we talking about here?!?

The duly elected government of Ukraine was overthrown in a Western, ECB, EU, US-manufactured putsch, and thrown under a bus, at a cost of over 5 billion US dollars (while homeless Vets sleep in our streets, and US infrastructure crumbles.) As reported at hangthebankers.com in February of 2014:

The problem that has arisen between the US and EU with regard to Ukraine is that Europeans have realized that the takeover of Ukraine is a direct threat to Russia, which can cut Europe off from oil and natural gas, and if there is war completely destroy Europe. Consequently, the EU became willing to stop provoking the Ukraine protests. The response of the neoconservative, Victoria Nuland, appointed Assistant Secretary of State by the duplicitous Obama, was “fuck the EU,” as she proceeded to describe the members of the Ukraine government that Washington tended to impose on a people so unaware as to believe that they are achieving independence by rushing into Washington’s arms. I once thought that no population could be as unaware as the US population. But I was wrong. Western Ukrainians are more unaware than Americans. The orchestration of the “crisis” in Ukraine is easy. The neoconservative Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland told the National Press Club in Washington on December 13, 2013, that the US has “invested” $5 billion in agitation in Ukraine. http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article37599.htm The crisis essentially resides in western Ukraine where romantic ideas about Russian oppression are strong and the population is less Russian than in the eastern Ukraine.

After this happened, Crimea, in what was considered a free and fair election, with observers, decided to join the Russian Federation.

Russia has done nothing wrong here.

What the EU and US here has been wrong, period, end of discussion.

The new subprime is in auto loans: One third of all new auto loans are of the subprime variety. Repossession are up 70 percent.

Leave it to Wall Street to resurrect the subprime loan. This time, subprime has found a comfortable home in the automotive industry. In the car addicted US culture, subprime debt is back in a massive way. Subprime auto debt is the new risky debt product. This is a big deal. $924 billion in total auto debt is rummaging around the economy. What is even more disturbing is that delinquencies on auto debt are surging. Repossessions are up 70 percent because people simply can’t make their auto payments. What do you expect when you are pumping out subprime debt trying to churn more sales on marginal buyers? Most Americans are living paycheck to paycheck so taking on another debt payment isn’t necessarily a wise move. How big is this market? The latest data shows that a stunning one third of new auto loans are in the form of subprime debt. This is telling given that FICO is planning on being more lax with credit scores.

FLASHBACK - Ebola from Pigs to Monkeys

The study, published today (November 15) in Scientific Reports, marks the first time that the virus has spread between different species in a lab experiment, and suggests that pig farms could be facilitate such species-hopping in more natural conditions.

However, Gary Kobinger from the University of Manitoba, who led the study, cautioned that “we still don’t know if pigs are playing any role in the natural transmission or ecology of Ebola virus in Africa.”

Here's how you can (and can't) get Ebola

You usually can't get Ebola through coughing or sneezing. The virus isn't airborne, thankfully, and experts expect that it will never become airborne. But, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said, "If a symptomatic patient with Ebola coughs or sneezes on someone, and saliva or mucus come into contact with that person's eyes, nose or mouth, these fluids may transmit the disease."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Read that paragraph carefully. Note the contradiction between the first sentence and the last.

And they wonder why the American people are not willing to trust anything the government and media are saying about Ebola.

Note that elsewhere this article mentions you can catch Ebola from other mammals such as humans, bats, monkeys and apes, but neglects to mention far more common dogs, which are known carriers of the illness, and worse, show no symptoms.

POLTICAL CORRECTNESS ON DISPLAY - Neighbors Of Ebola Patient Feel ‘Discriminated Against’

Residents in the Vickery Meadow neighborhood of Dallas are living near the epicenter of the Ebola scare in North Texas. Now, they say they’re facing a different challenge — discrimination.

Thomas Duncan stayed at an apartment in the community before being diagnosed with Ebola and admitted into Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital for treatment.

Dallas City Council member Jennifer Staubach Gates says that she met with over 30 community leaders on Monday, trying to assess the needs of the residents. Most are concerned about the possible stigma of living near the apartment building.

“Unfortunately, they are feeling discriminated against,” said Gates. “We still have some that have been turned away from jobs. Some that have been turned away at retail locations. We’re getting them in touch with legal aid and any resources necessary.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

More indications that Ebola is being treated as a political issue, rather than as a health crisis. This is the height of the absurdity called "political correctness", that you may not avoid people who may be infected with lethal illnesses!

Sweden, Palestine and the United States

Sweden’s new Prime Minister, Stefan Lofven, has announced that that nation will be the first of the European Union to grant official recognition to Palestine. To date, 134 of the 193 member states of the United Nations recognize Palestine. This is a reasonable step that will, hopefully, set the example for other European nations to do the same.

The United States, Israel’s best friend in all the world, and that bottomless pit of financial assistance for Israel, is, not surprisingly, seriously displeased. A spokeswoman for President Barack Obama said this: “We believe international recognition of a Palestinian state is premature. We certainly support Palestinian statehood, but it can only come through a negotiated outcome, a resolution of final status issues and mutual recognitions by both parties.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If George Washington had held to the same policy as Obama, this nation would still be a part of the British Empire!

Some Ebola experts worry virus may spread more easily than assumed

Other public health officials have voiced similar assurances, saying Ebola is spread only through physical contact with a symptomatic individual or their bodily fluids. "Ebola is not transmitted by the air. It is not an airborne infection," said Dr. Edward Goodman of Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas, where the Liberian patient remains in critical condition.

Yet some scientists who have long studied Ebola say such assurances are premature — and they are concerned about what is not known about the strain now on the loose. It is an Ebola outbreak like none seen before, jumping from the bush to urban areas, giving the virus more opportunities to evolve as it passes through multiple human hosts.

India Holds Bill Gates Accountable For His Vaccine Crimes

“While fraud and corruption are revealed on almost a daily basis now in the vaccine industry, the U.S. mainstream media continues to largely ignore such stories.

Mysterious Outbreak of hemorrhagic fever Syndrome in Venezuela kills Ten

An outbreak of a mysterious hemorrhagic fever syndrome in the Venezuelan state of Aragua and the country’s capital Caracas has left ten people dead in the last three weeks. Reports indicate that nine people have so far succumbed to the disease in the northern state and a tenth person has died in the capital.

It is unclear whether the cause of the syndrome is viral or bacterial – a distinction with implications for treatment – although autopsies have indicated that those who died were suffering from other complications, such as Chikungunya.

Venezuelan hemorrhagic fever (VHF) is endemic in the two states of Portuguesa and Barinas, but transmission from person-to-person is uncommon.

While samples have been sent to the Venezuelan National Institute of Health, the results have not yet been released publically and there is no suggestion from health officials that VHF is behind this particular outbreak.

Three years later, Pentagon unit still hides Internet voting test results

A nonprofit watchdog group is suing an obscure Defense Department unit over its failure for three years to disclose the results of testing on the security safeguards of Internet voting systems that are increasingly being used to cast absentee ballots.

The Pentagon unit, the Federal Voting Assistance Program, has effectively bankrolled many states’ shift to online voting, disbursing tens of millions of dollars in grants for the purchase of equipment that includes Internet balloting options.

Its actions have drawn consternation from cyber experts, who have warned for years that Internet voting is an easy target for hackers who could tamper with or even fix election results. The government’s premier technology testing agency also has refused to endorse these systems.

Texas wants a second patient "reasonably suspected of being infected" with Ebola put into protective custody in Dallas.

Dr. David L. Lakey, commissioner of the Texas Department of State Health Services, filed a motion for a temporary order of protective custody Monday in Dallas County Court.

The unidentified patient, sued as "M.W.L.," is "reasonably suspected of being infected with a communicable disease (Ebola) that presents an immediate threat to public health," the 4-page motion states.

"Further, movant has determined that proposed patient is a threat to himself or others if not immediately restrained. Further, sources charged with monitoring the proposed patient M.W.L. have observed the proposed patient failing or refusing to follow the written order of the Texas Department of State Health Services by leaving the premises of a medical facility contrary to medical directives, without permission and surreptitiously."

Windows 10's 'built-in keylogger'? Ha ha, says Microsoft – no, it just monitors your typing

Don't want Microsoft tracking you online and collecting data on your computing habits? Then you probably shouldn't install the Windows 10 Technical Preview, Redmond says.

The interwebs were abuzz on Monday over concerns about the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy of Microsoft's newly released, not-even-beta-yet OS, with some sites going as far as to claim that Windows 10 comes with a "built-in keylogger" to watch users' every move.

In 2010, two Merck virologists filed a federal lawsuit under the False Claims Act against their former employer, alleging the vaccine maker lied about the effectiveness of their mumps vaccine (which is part of the trivalent measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine).

The whistleblowers, Stephen Krahling and Joan Wlochowski, claimed they witnessed "firsthand the improper testing and data falsification in which Merck engaged to artificially inflate the vaccine's efficacy findings."

They charged that Merck used improper testing techniques; manipulated testing methodology; abandoned undesirable test results; falsified test data; and failed to adequately investigate and report the diminished efficacy of its mumps vaccine.

BEX ALERT - Captives are so calm because they've been through so many MOCK executions that they still do not know they are about to die, reveals former hostage

The hostages in Islamic State execution videos appear calm because they do not realise they are about to die, according to a former captive.

French war reporter Didier Francois, who was released by the terrorists earlier this year, said that prisoners were threatened with execution ‘several times’ and IS militants carried out macabre mock crucifixions.

Commenting on why the hostages, including Briton David Haines, remained calm even seconds before their deaths, the journalist said: ‘They did not realise that this time it was the real thing’.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

BULL BISCUITS! This is a pathetic attempt to recover from one of the many mistakes the producers of these videos made. And it is certain that at the time the knife starts cutting, the victim would know it was real and react, which we do not see in the videos. And even if the beheadings were real, that does not tell us who did it, only who Rita Katz and SITE Intelligence Group (linked to US and Israeli intelligence agencies) want us to blame for it.

Everything About Colloidal Silver

Two thousand, three hundred years ago, Alexander The Great was surveying his battlefield and drinking water from silver urns. He knew nothing about bacteria, but he knew that silver containers have a seemingly miraculous way of keeping water fresh. Silver has been used for thousands of years in different forms for its health benefits. Throughout the middle ages, the wealthy gave their children silver spoons to suck upon to stave off illnesses. People have known about the benefits of silver for so long that it is incorporated into legends. Silver is the recommended agent for killing vampires, werewolves, and various forms of the so-called undead. According to ancient legend, a silver dagger was all that a knight needed to vanquish evil.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

With Ebola in the news, and cases already showing up in the US, Spain, and Norway, people (if not their governments) are very worried about the current strain of Ebola, which kills 70% of everyone it infects.There are studies that confirm Colloidal Silver's effectiveness against some 650 infectious diseases. Contrast that with the average anti-biotic, which usually works against maybe 15 diseases. According to this report, Colloidal Silver is effective against hemorrhagic fevers including Ebola. Given that colloidal silver cannot be patented and used for profit by the big pharmaceutical corporations, they have little interest in funding such research. Indeed the big pharmaceutical companies lobbied the FDA to totally ban colloidal silver in 1998, but a huge public outcry forced the FDA to allow it to be sold again, but only in very diluted amounts.

So, with the WHO announcing that experimental therapies may be tried during this crisis (even though it continues to block shipments of colloidal silver to Africa) , many people may be willing to "roll the dice" and use colloidal silver if Ebola shows up in their area.

Here is how I make my own colloidal silver.

Some websites say you can use silver coins in an emergency, but that will result in other metals being driven into the solution that you may not want in your body unless the silver coins are .999 pure.

After cleaning, fill the beaker with distilled water. Do NOT use bottled mineral water as you may get unexpected chemical reactions. Heat the water in the beaker to just below boiling as the hotter the water is the finer and more effective the particles of silver will be.

Insert the silver rods and connect to a 30 volt DC power supply. 30 volts is ideal, but you can get by using three 9 volt batteries connected in series. If you are using two silver rods, polarity does not matter.

Use a TDS meter (available for free when you buy a Zero Water pitcher or you can also find these on eBay) to measure the PPM silver count. We process to 25ppm in our setup. Because we are heating the water, the TDS meter will tend to overstate the true PPM, so we go to a reading of 75 to get a 25 end result.

Because distilled water is a poor conductor of electricity, it takes a while to start getting the silver into the water. Once the silver does start entering the water, the water will conduct electricity more easily and the process will accelerate. What I do is take 100ml of colloidal silver from a previous run and add it to the water as a feedstock, which greatly accelerates the process.

This setup produces 2000ml of 25ppm colloidal silver in just a few hours.

The finished product should be very pale yellow and there should be no precipitates if your setup was properly cleaned. Filter and bottle in clean dark brown or blue glass bottles, do NOT use plastic or metal, and store in a dark place as strong light will cause the silver to lose its ionization and become less effective. If you start to see dark precipitates forming, your batch is contaminated, and the prudent thing to do is start over.

After you are done, clean the silver rods again using vinegar and store in a ziplock bag until the next time.

I spent about $100 building this setup (mostly for the power supply) but an equivalent amount of colloidal silver from the local health food store would cost the same, so as of the second run, we are saving money.

Officer Friendly has gone rabid

I do not trust the police at all any more. The news has utterly destroyed their reputation, and it’s damned clear that they have a screwed-up idea of their mission.

Case in point: this is how Indiana police respond to a seat belt infraction. That’s right, a woman forget to fasten her seat belt when she was rushing to the hospital.

Lisa Mahone said she was pulled over Sept. 25 by Hammond police for a seat belt violation as she drove with her boyfriend and their two children to a Chicago hospital, where doctors had said her mother was near death.

She handed over her driver’s license and proof of insurance, and police asked her boyfriend, Jamal Jones, for his ID.

Jones told police he did not have an ID because he had recently gotten a ticket, and he reached into a book bag on the back seat to show them the ticket.

Ebola Infects Spanish Nurse, a First in West

A nurse in Spain has become the first health worker to be infected with the Ebola virus outside of West Africa, raising serious concerns about how prepared Western nations are to safely treat people with the deadly illness.

The nurse contracted the illness while treating a Spanish missionary who was infected in Sierra Leone and flown to Madrid’s Carlos III hospital, where he died on Sept. 25, Spain’s Health Ministry said. The priest, Manuel García Viejo, died three days after being flown back to Spain, and the nurse entered his room only twice, including once after his death, according to Antonio Alemany, a health official from the regional government of Madrid.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The nurse apparently waited until she had symptoms for three days before seeking medical help herself.

The Law of Futility: Air Strikes Against the Islamic State

War is a dirty, unforgiving business. It is not rendered clean by remote deployments and orders executed at a distance from seemingly safe areas. It takes lives, inflicts unspeakable harm, and rarely brings smiles to those who suffer it. But the members of the US-led coalition currently involved in striking Islamic State targets in Syria and Iraq would have you think otherwise. They give the impression that clean distances are golden, and air strikes will have their intended “degrading” effect. Therein lies the message about the false salvation of machinery – the technological panacea that rarely does what it is meant to.

New report alleges $30 million in fraud and abuse connected to PA charter schools

A new report charges that Pennsylvania charter school operators have engaged in fraud and abuse amounting to about $30 million.

It was released today by several non-profit groups including the Center for Popular Democracy (CPD), Integrity in Education, and ACTION United. The report is called, Fraud and Financial Mismanagement in Pennsylvania’s Charter Schools.

The report claims that within the past 17 years, charter school operators in Pennsylvania have abused the system of at least $30 million. It also asserts that state agencies, charged with overseeing charter schools, are not up to the job of weeding out fraud and abuse.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This may be a hatchet job by the government, which views charter schools as a significant threat to the public system of indoctrination children are otherwise forced to submit to.

Israel leaders say Jerusalem to remain 'state's capital'

Israeli leaders have asserted that Jerusalem would remain as their state's capital, despite international criticism over recent plans to build more Jewish-only settlement units in the occupied holy city.

"One of the more significant elements of our national unity is the general agreement on Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and the world needs to understand that," Israeli President Reuven Rivlin said on Monday evening during a meeting with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

"Jerusalem is our capital and as our capital, we need to allow the residents of the city to live and reside in it," Rivlin was quoted as saying by a statement from the premier's office.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What the world understands is that Israel was created with Tel Aviv as its capital, and that Israel is in open defiance of multiple United Nations resolutions that Jerusalem is a city that is to be shared with Christians and Muslims.

6 Ways Government Corruption Is Way Weirder Than You Think

We try to stay positive here at Cracked, but we're starting to suspect that the American political system is fucked.

Russia, China capable of defeating US in nuclear war: Prof. Fetzer

An eminent American political commentator says Russia and China are capable of defeating the United Sates in a nuclear war.

In an interview with Press TV on Monday, Professor James Henry Fetzer also said that Americans must wake up to the fact that a nuclear exchange would kill hundreds of millions of people.

He said, “The very idea that the United States should be concerned that Russia and China are giving every indication that they are not going to back down from American and Western encroachment in the Middle East and in Eastern Europe, is incredibly naïve on the part of any American authorities because we have been undertaking one provocative action after another.

Breitbart Texas has learned a complaint was filed with Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, also known as CPS. The complaint was filed on Sunday morning by a concerned Dallas citizen who had read about Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins going into the apartment where Ebola patient, Thomas Eric Duncan, lived while he was sick. Jenkins was in the apartment with four people who had been directly exposed by Duncan to the Ebola virus. Jenkins said, in a subsequent press conference that he was going home to his wife and nine-year-old daughter after he discussed being in the apartment again and driving the exposed family to their new home -- a forty-five minute drive. At no point did Jenkins appear to wear any protective clothing.

On July 15, Omeonga’s boss walked into his office at St. Joseph Catholic Hospital in Monrovia, Liberia full of worry. The hospital director told Omeonga he had shaken hands with a man who was later diagnosed with Ebola, and now he was feeling ill—the director had been vomiting, had a headache, and was running a high fever. But two days later, when the diagnostic test came back negative, that worry was banished, and Omeonga and his colleagues began caring for the director as they would a typhoid or malaria patient. “We wore gloves, but we were not very strict at all.”

BLOCKBUSTER: NOT ONLY DOES US GOVERNMENT RESEARCH SHOW THAT THERE IS A CURE FOR EBOLA*, BUT THIS INFORMATION IS BEING SUPPRESSED BY THE US GOVERNMENT

The international community says, with a single voice, that there is no cure for Ebola and no prevention, either. They tell us that because the Ebola Virus strain devastating West Africa is a novel one, no antibiotic can touch it and that the organism has an astonishing kill rate of 90%.

Leaving aside the World Health Agency and all associated laboratories and research institutions, I find it impossible to believe that the US Government’s Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DFRA, Defense Department) and United States Army Medical Research Institue of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) two agencies with large budgets publishing nearly 100 scientific papers on Ebola and its treatment since 2000, could not come up with a cure, prevention or treatment for it.

Oh! Wait! They DID come up with a cure, prevention and treatment for it: 10 PPM Nano Silver. That’s right! OOPS! US Government, WHO and their associated minions are lying! Again!

Governments seize colloidal silver being used to treat Ebola patients, says advocate

Efforts to bring natural Ebola treatments to suffering West Africans have been squelched by the World Health Organization (WHO), which recently blocked multiple shipments of nanosilver solution measuring at 10 parts per million (ppm) from entering the region, leaving thousands to suffer needlessly.

WHO officials also reportedly called off a trial at an Ebola isolation ward where local health authorities were set to begin administering the silver, which the U.S. government previously demonstrated is highly effective against Ebola. WHO ordered the trial not to proceed despite the fact that it had earlier voiced support for experimental treatments.

Both WHO and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have given their blessing to experimental therapies for Ebola, citing a lack of proven treatment options. But when it comes to using therapeutic silver, all bets are off, it seems.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The blessing is apparently only for experimental therapies being produced by the large corporate pharmaceutical companies. Letting people cure themselves is damaging to the bottom line!

The Ebola test: let the test's inventor speak

Amidst the hysteria about Ebola, one stubborn fact sits like a rock: everything depends upon being able to accurately diagnose Ebola in each patient.

Because, if there is a serious problem with the test, the whole house of cards collapses. The entire narrative about Ebola is fatally flawed.

Monsanto's Roundup Linked to Cancer - Again

Roundup seemed, at first, to be the perfect herbicide. It blocks the ESPS synthase enzyme, which prevents the synthesis of amino acids that plants need for growth. Since animals don't have this enzyme, it was initially hypothesized that they would be safe from Roundup's effects.

Unfortunately, Roundup has now been shown to affect much more than the EPSP synthase enzyme. The herbicide has been proven to cause birth defects in vertebrates, including in humans, and it may also be the cause of a fatal kidney disease epidemic.

An increasing number of studies are now linking the herbicide to cancer.

Florida Cop Molests Boy In Mall Bathroom, Avoids Jail, Keeps Pension.

An administrative law judge Tuesday said a former Collier County sheriff's deputy should be able to receive state retirement benefits, despite pleading no contest to felony child-abuse charges stemming from accusations he sexually molested a minor. The state Board of Administration, which oversees the Florida Retirement System, sought the forfeiture of Charles Bullock's retirement benefits after the no-contest plea.

Bullock was charged with going to a mall food-court bathroom at least three times between November 2009 and February 2010 to have sexual encounters with a boy under age 16.

On two of the occasions, he molested the boy, and Bullock was interrupted by a mall employee on the third occasion, leading to the criminal investigation, Tuesday's ruling said.

"As it relates to the prospect of a travel ban, this is something they we're not, that's not being considered right now," Earnest said. "The concern that we have is that we are relying on the commercial transportation system to move supplies and personnel into the region to try to meet the needs of the individuals who are effected by Ebola and to stop this outbreak at the source. That is what will be critical to our broader success here so we don't want to obstruct one of the core components of our strategy here.

Obama Threatens More Sanctions Against Zimbabwe Over Russian-Platinum Deal

As Martin Armstrong exclaims, Obama is out of control. According to NewZimbabwe.com, Washington has said it will accelerate sanctions imposed against Harare in 2003, due to the Robert Mugabe-led government's closer ties with Russia over the US$3 billion Darwendale platinum project. Herald columnist Nathaniel Manheru (who is thought to be Mugabe's spokesman), reported, Washington explained its expectations on Zimbabwe, namely that Zimbabwe was expected (read required) to support those sanctions by avoiding any association with companies sanctioned by the Americans and their Western allies, or their subsidiaries or affiliates. Manheru said "it was ridiculous for the US to refuse to lift sanctions against Harare and then demand support for its measures against Moscow... This is where I am tempted to tell the American government to go and hang, hang on a banana tree, bums up."

My Facebook page, myself

I did a quick search and saw that Facebook had been requiring users to send in photos of their IDs to verify their identities for at least a year.

Without thinking, I picked up my phone to write a Facebook post to see if this had happened to anyone else. But, of course, I couldn't use Facebook on my phone either. I tried to enter my password and the little wheel spun futilely. This was serious.

So, I did what anyone else would do when locked out of Facebook: I posted on Twitter.

It turned out that at least five people I knew through Twitter were locked out of their Facebook accounts Tuesday. Some were thoroughly creeped out that Facebook would demand a copy of their IDs. Some decided this was their cue to shut their accounts once and for all.

Earlier this evening, we showed an account verification message to a very small portion of our users unnecessarily. We promptly removed the messages when we discovered the error. We’re sorry for any inconvenience we may have caused.

The issue has since been resolved.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

No it hasn't because this is exactly what I am seeing on my Facebook account! And I am still waiting to hear back from Facebook about why my account (which I don't even use that much) was locked.

3 On Your Side: Facebook Lock-out Issue

Recently, Karina says Facebook locked her out of her account without any explanation. The page was still up, but she could not log in.

“It asked me to submit a government-issued photo ID, so I automatically assumed it was a scam,” explains Moreno.

When she contacted Facebook, she was told it was not a scam — Facebook really needed a copy of her identification.

“Why should I have to submit it to a free social networking site?” she says she asked. “It’s absolutely ridiculous.”

We found a number of people complaining online about the same issue with Facebook.

Facebook has apologised to its transgender and drag queen users, after suspending a number of their accounts under a policy that required people to use their “real” names.

The social network provoked an outcry from members of the LGBT community in recent weeks after it locked out users for operating pages under their stage names, such as Sister Roma and Lil Miss Hot Mess.

US Military Marches East to Consolidate Front Against Russia

US military is expanding its training exercises and coordinating the activities of its allies pitting Europe against Russia, Daniel Zubov from Rossiya Segodnya’s Center for International Journalism and Research said Thursday.

“While continuing to denounce alleged Russian military involvement in Ukraine, the American military marched east this September, participating in training, drills, and exercises spanning from Latvia to Turkey. It coordinated with its military allies in between – including in Ukraine – consolidating a front which extends 2,600 kilometers,” Zubov stated.

FBI Director Warns of ‘Khorasan’ Threat

In comments on today’s “60 Minutes” program, FBI Director James Comey warned that the Khorasan group is “serious people, bent of destruction” who plan to attack the US “very, very soon.”

Comey insisted the US had to act as if the Khorasan strike was “coming tomorrow,” but conceded that they don’t know whether they plan to attack “tomorrow or three weeks or three months from now.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to FBI Director Comey: if there is a "big bang" in this country, it will mean that neither you, the NSA, the CIA, or the FBI, or military intelligence has been able to protect us, and should be collectively SACKED instantly after such an event occurs.

And the US government has another serious problem: few Americans believe ANYTHING this government says anymore, because it has completely paralyzed and crippled its own credibility.

Should there be a crisis inside this country (like a real, exponential outbreak of ebola here), even if the information the government was disseminating was accurate, it would not be believed.

Pinkeye Was Only Symptom in Child Killed by Enterovirus

A New Jersey preschooler killed last month by a respiratory virus that is spreading across the U.S. showed symptoms only of pinkeye before he died in his sleep, health officials said.

Four-year-old Eli Waller, of Hamilton Township, was kept home from school by his mother on Wednesday, Sept. 23, because he was developing a little bit of pinkeye, said Jeff Plunkett, the health officer for the township. He was otherwise fine and had been in school on Sept. 21 and 22.

Even if we defeat the Islamic State, we’ll still lose the bigger war

As America’s efforts to “degrade and ultimately destroy” Islamic State militants extend into Syria, Iraq War III has seamlessly morphed into Greater Middle East Battlefield XIV. That is, Syria has become at least the 14th country in the Islamic world that U.S. forces have invaded or occupied or bombed, and in which American soldiers have killed or been killed. And that’s just since 1980.

Illegal immigrant students bring ’21 Spanish dialects’ that teachers don’t understand

Fifty-four Central American refugee students, some of whom cannot read or write, have been moved from their schools into a separate program at a Hall County public school, Lanier Charter Career Academy.

The students, who crossed the border in precarious conditions to escape violence in their home countries, do not speak English. Their Spanish dialects are unfamiliar to the district’s Spanish teachers, and some have had little schooling.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The "immigration reformers" pushing for amnesty for illegals are basically saying that everyone should leave the front door to their house open so that anyone who comes along may come in and take what they want. That is, of course, nonsense. Your house has a door so that you can choose who comes in. Nations have borders so that they can choose who comes in.

There are many illnesses now reported to be carried by the illegals pouring across the border. US Border Patrol agents are being infected with scabies. Two schools in California where illegals have been sent are now showing clusters of tuberculosis. Swine flu and AIDS have also been found in the immigrants. Worse, as of today, Bolivia, source for many of the illegals now entering the US, is reporting an outbreak of Bubonic Plague along the border with Peru (also a source for many illegals entering the US).

Those who seek to erase the immigration laws of the United States run the risk of turning the entire country into a Jim Jones style suicide cult!

We keep hearing that the illegals are fleeing oppressive government in their own lands. Why they would think life will be any better here is a mystery as the US now ranks 36th on the global freedom scale, pretty much at the bottom of all industrialized nations.

But let us look at history for how to deal with a repressive regime.

When the British discovered that King Charles 1 had hired Scottish troops to oppress the British people, the British didn't swim across the English Channel to France and say "Let us in! Let us in!" They arrested the King and cut off his head! Things got a lot better in their own nation after that!

When the French living under King Louise XVI realized their were being systematically looted by the French monarchy, they didn't swim across the English Channel to Britain and say "Let us in! Let us in!" They arrested the King and sent him and his money-junky friends to the guillotine! Things got a lot better in their own nation after that!

When the Italian people realized that Benito Mussolini had gotten them into a war on the side that was going to lose, the Italians didn't flock to the border of Austria and say "Let us in! Let us in!" They arrested Mussolini and shot him! Things got a lot better in their own nation after that!

When the Romanians lived under a repressive regime, they didn't flock to the border with Serbia and scream "Let us in! Let us in!" They took responsibility for the future of their nation, and machine-gunned Ceausescu live on Romanian National TV. Things got a lot better in their own nation after that!

We the people of the United States are not responsible to make the lives of Bolivians, Nicaraguans, Peruvians, Brazilians, etc. better. We have plenty of our own problems. Our current government doesn't even want to take care of America's homeless and hungry who are LEGAL citizens!

So, instead of flocking to our borders and screaming "Let us in! Let us in", maybe you need to man-up, show some courage, and fix your own problems.

Teenager with 'Ebola-like' symptoms quarantined in Miami after falling sick while on holiday from West Africa

A teenager from West Africa who became sick while visiting Florida on holiday caused Jackson Memorial Hospital to go on high alert on Sunday amid fears that he may have the deadly Ebola virus.

Officials said the patient took a taxi to Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami Beach after he became sick with flu-like symptoms. Miami Beach Fire Rescue then transferred him to Jackson for further tests.

A test performed by the Department of Health came back negative on Monday morning, but Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine said the results were being sent to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for a final test.

No campaign to face probe over Scotland's independence referendum

Anti-Scottish independence campaigners will face a formal investigation over allegations that they breached electoral law in last month’s referendum, the Crown Office has said.

“We can confirm that Crown counsel has instructed Police Scotland to commence an investigation into alleged breaches of Schedule 7, Paragraph 7, of the Scottish Independence Referendum Act 2013,” the Scottish prosecution service said in a statement on Saturday.

The allegations apparently relate to comments by Scottish Conservative Party Leader and Member of the Scottish Parliament Ruth Davidson, who said pro-UK campaigners violated electoral law by counting postal votes ahead of referendum polling day.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

But apparently not the photos and videos of fraud, or the bags of abandoned YES votes. This is merely pretending their is an investigation with which to reassure the slaves that they did in fact vote for their enslavement.

US preparing for imminent terrorist attack by Khorasan Group: FBI head

The head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) says the United States is preparing for an imminent terrorist attack by Al-Qaeda’s alleged affiliate in Syria, the Khorasan Group.

James Comey made the remarks in an interview broadcast on Sunday night, following reports which said that US airstrikes targeting the Khorasan Group in Syria were unsuccessful, according to American officials familiar with the operation.

Many of the suspected leaders and members of the group managed to escape the September 22 air raids, said three US officials.

The FBI director said the group was working on a plan to carry out terrorist attacks against the United States.

“Khorasan was working and may still be working on an effort to attack the United States or our allies, and looking to do it very, very soon,” he told the CBS television network.

“For months, doctors in my community — since we had a meeting six weeks ago — have been convinced that the United States will be importing clusters regularly.

It’s just a matter of time before this disease is carried to every corner of the world.”

He insists the CDC is underplaying the threat posed by the disease and is intentionally misleading the public.

FLASHBACK 2000 - NY TIMES - Some May Carry Ebola Virus Without Having the Symptoms

The Ebola virus, which has caused deaths from high fever and bleeding in African outbreaks, can also infect without producing illness, according to a new finding by African and European scientists.

The possibility of asymptomatic infection was only suggested in earlier studies, they said in last week's issue of The Lancet, a medical journal published in London. Now they said they had documented such infections for the first time. They found that the Ebola virus could persist in the blood of asymptomatic infected individuals for two weeks after they were first exposed to an infected individual. How much longer the virus can persist is unknown.

All outbreaks of Ebola have been controlled by standard infection control measures such as effective body disposal, destroying or sterilizing contaminated equipment and appropriate use of gloves. But if people can be carriers without showing symptoms, it means control might be more difficult.

'Where are they getting all these folks from?' Author Naomi Wolf is condemned for suggesting ISIS hostages are ACTORS and be-headings aren't real

Author Naomi Wolf has been accused of being 'disrespectful' after suggesting footage of hostages being beheaded by ISIS militants isn't real.

The 51-year-old American writer made a series of controversial statements questioning the authenticity of the footage in a number of messages on her Facebook page.

Young and not buying into the American dream: Homeownership among young households is simply not picking up and shifting demographic trends.

If the American dream means owning a home, many younger Americans are opting out of that dream. Part of the reason may be a generational shift in having smaller families and a growing number of dual income no kid (DINK) households. That is part of it but a bigger reason is many younger Americans are financially in poor shape and unable to buy. Many are now part of a growing renter class. The recent Census data shows no reversal in this trend. Why would it? Many young Americans are also carrying high levels of student debt and in high cost areas like California, 2.3 million young adults are living at home with their parents because of financial challenges. This change has also impacted home builders since there is less of a need for large new homes when the demand is more for affordable rentals. Builders are keen to see this and that is why multi-family building permits are way up. What impact will this trend have on the housing landscape of America?

American scientist in 2006 called for using Ebola to exterminate 90% of the Earth’s population

What is noteworthy is a statement by an award-winning Texas scientist who in 2006 advocated for the extermination of 90% of the Earth’s population using an airborne Ebola virus. University of Texas professor Dr. Eric R. Pianka called Ebola, “His preferred method of exterminating over five billion human beings was via airborne Ebola (Ebola Reston), because it is both highly lethal and kills its victims in days rather than years.”

US waives child soldier sanctions on six nations

Washington is releasing some US$26 million to Yemen in military aid and boosting funds to armies in five other nations, waiving sanctions imposed for recruiting child soldiers.

Central African Republic, the Democratic Republic of Congo and South Sudan were also given partial waivers for specific military purposes, while sanctions were maintained on Myanmar, Sudan and Syria, found guilty of the widespread recruitment of children into their armies.

Biden's Speech Might Backfire on Washington: Former Assistant Secretary of Treasury

Speech of the US Vice President Joe Biden can backfire on Washington, as it embarrasses the European Union members and demonstrates the US has intimidated them, Paul Craig Roberts, former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury, believes.

"One of the possible consequences is that his speech embarrasses European governments by showing that Europe is Washington's vassal," Roberts told RIA Novosti on Friday. "The other is that by pressing Europeans to act against their own interests, Washington might have been too much of a bully and hurt its future influence in Europe."

US Vice President said Thursday that the United States and US President Barack Obama, in particular, had forced the European Union members to "take economic hits to impose cost" on Russia.

Biden Admits the Origin of ISIS

US Vice President Joe Biden has made the latest in a series of chastening apologies, after the United Arab Emirates expressed “astonishment” at his Thursday remarks. Biden called US allies “the biggest problem” in fighting terrorism in the Middle East.

“The UAE’s counter-terrorism approach reflects a pioneering national commitment that recognises the extent of the danger posed by terrorism to the region and to its people,” said Gargash in a press release.

The assertions were in stark contrast to the incendiary remarks Biden uttered in an unguarded moment during a Q&A at Harvard University on Thursday, in which the official accused the UAE, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey of inciting radical Sunni elements to raise their weapons against Assad, who belongs to a sect of Shia Islam.

NYC teen spends 3 years in solitary with NO TRIAL after being falsely accused of stealing backpack

On May 15, 2010, Kalief Browder was returning home from a party in the Bronx with a friend. He was stopped by police, who were working on a tip that he had robbed someone earlier that night. In the backseat of the police car, the man who provided that tip pointed at Browder and said he had stolen something from him.

“I didn’t do it,” Browder responded. “I didn’t steal anything. Check my pockets.”

The police went back to the car to consult with the man in the backseat, who then changed his story, and said that the robbery had occurred a few weeks earlier.

Browder accompanied the police to the station, thinking, “I’m just going to be here for a couple hours. We’ll clear up this misunderstanding.”

It would be three years before the “misunderstanding” was cleared up.

"He exhibited clear indicators that he needed to be taken to the psych ward," Jenkins told News 8.

Parkland spokesman Mike Malaise said Lively was later removed by health officials and taken to an undisclosed location for isolation.

Farmers fear fracking could spell financial ruin

Farmers fear they could face financial ruin from government plans to allow fracking beneath their land without compensation, the National Farmers' Union has warned.

Ministers pushing for shale gas exploration cannot take the support of rural communities for granted and are turning farmers against the process by appearing to brush side their concerns, it warned.

The Government is pressing ahead with new laws that would strip people of power to block fracking beneath their property or land. It has insisted no compensation will be paid to individual home and landowners, because they should not be affected by the gas or oil extraction deep beneath them.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As reported at nyagainstfracking.org:

As the State rapidly approaches the deadline to decide whether to allow fracking to go forward in New York, residents from across Pennsylvania came forward to tell legislators their stories. New Yorkers Against Fracking also released an ad, which will initially run in the Albany and New York City markets highlighting stories of dead cows and poisoned water. Since fracking began in states outside of New York, there have been numerous reports of water contamination. Studies link fracking-related activities to contaminated groundwater; air pollution; illness, death, and reproductive problems in cows, horses and wildlife; and human health problems. “These stories from Pennsylvania are very alarming,” said Dr. Sheila Bushkin, MD, MPH of the Institute for Health and the Environment at University at Albany. “The perspective of the gas industry fails to show adequate concern for the long-term health and quality of life of people. When you listen to the personal experiences of actual residents of Pennsylvania and other states where fracking has gone forward, you will hear stories of dead cows, pets, sick children, poisoned water and other serious health and environmental problems. These stories confirm our need for much greater research and evidence-based scientific facts.” “My story is not unusual,” said Terry Greenwood, a farmer from Southwestern Pennsylvania. “After my cows drank from a pond that was contaminated by frackwater, 10 of the 19 calves were born stillborn.” “The industry says there are no problems,” said Matt Manning. “Well when the industry came to Northeastern PA, our water turned black and started bubbling. Our kids would cough and choke in the shower. It got so bad that the state required the companies to provide us with deliveries of clean water. But that’s not a long-term solution.”

Actually, in the UK, all fracking should be mandated beneath the homes of all members of the House of Lords and the House of Commons.

It would be very instructive to see how well THEY like it, and what their health costs would be

Shore town settles 3 excessive force lawsuits

The borough of Seaside Heights has settled three excessive force lawsuits against its police department since July.

As previously reported, the borough paid out $500,000 to a Toms River man who alleged police used pepper spray on him and threw him to the boardwalk. It also settled two other suits alleging excessive force for a total of $45,000.

The resolutions to the lawsuits were first reported by NJ Civil Settlements, which details settlements paid by New Jersey government agencies and their insurers to those who have sued them.

In one suit, Nicole A. Lamb of Voorhees received $25,000 after complaining she was assaulted by police following her arrest on Aug. 5, 2012.

Hewlett-Packard to split into two public companies, lay off 5,000

Hewlett-Packard Co (HPQ.N) said it would split into two listed companies, separating its computer and printer businesses from its faster-growing corporate hardware and services operations, and eliminate another 5,000 jobs as part of its turnaround plan.

HP said its shareholders would own a stake in both businesses through a tax-free transaction next year, the details of which still needed to be worked out.

Transmission of infectious diseases during commercialair travel - Lancet

The transmission of
Mycobacterium
tuberculosis
is the most studied model of the spread of
airborne pathogens aboard aircraft. Several studies
about in-flight transmission of tuberculosis have been
reported, with most being done in the mid-1990s.
4,29,30,39–41
Two of the seven investigations revealed a probable link
of onboard transmission. In the first occurrence, a flight
attendant was the index case, and two documented
tuberculin skin test conversions occurred during
5 months in 1992 in 212 fellow crew members and
59 frequent flyer passengers.
39
The second, and largest,
incident was of a passenger with pulmonary
tuberculosis travelling from Baltimore to Chicago and
then on to Honolulu.
29
Four of 15 fellow passengers
seated within two rows of the index passenger had
positive tuberculin skin test conversion. Although there
is a risk of tuberculosis within the aircraft cabin, no
cases of active disease have been reported as a result of

Infection Transmission During Air Travel

It is clear that due to lower air exchange rates and decreased sunlight, enclosed spaces such as buildings and transport vehicles are more susceptible to the transmission of infectious particles than are the outdoors.[1] Aircraft cabins are particularly worrisome due to high occupant densities and long exposure times. Well-documented outbreaks of tuberculosis, influenza, severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), and norovirus are alleged to have occurred during air travel.[2][3][4][5] All of these diseases are transmitted via either large droplets or aerosolization.[6]

Natural Gas is No Solution for Reducing CO2

President Obama's energy plan to reduce carbon emissions positions natural gas as the great bridge fuel, as its carbon emissions are half that of coal. Other coal still accounts for 39 percent of U.S. electricity generation. Natural gas extraction through fracking is booming, so much so that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission this week approved the highly contested $3.8 billion Cove Point natural gas processing and export facility, located in the Chesapeake Bay area of Maryland. This is the third such natural gas facility that the U.S. Department of Energy has approved this month.

Panetta: '30-year war' and a leadership test for Obama

Americans should be braced for a long battle against the brutal terrorist group Islamic State that will test U.S. resolve — and the leadership of the commander in chief, says Leon Panetta, who headed the CIA and then the Pentagon as Al Qaeda was weakened and Osama bin Laden killed.

"I think we're looking at kind of a 30-year war," he says, one that will have to extend beyond Islamic State to include emerging threats in Nigeria, Somalia, Yemen, Libya and elsewhere.

Experts starting to admit it may take vaccine to stop Ebola in West Africa

As West Africa's Ebola outbreak continues to rage, some experts are coming to the conclusion that it may take large amounts of vaccines and maybe even drugs — all still experimental and in short supply — to bring the outbreak under control.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Here comes the cash-grab by Big Pharma! Apparently when the WHO said experimental and unproven therapies were allowable during this crisis, what they meant was that experimental and unproven therapies by big corporations are allowable during this crisis, as they are still blocking efforts to test and use alternative (non patentable) therapies such as colloidal silver. The history of vaccines is not reassuring, given how many vaccines have actually caused more harm than good, such as India's polio vaccine in 2011, or the 1976 Swine Flu vaccines here in the US. Indeed there are reports that the current Ebola outbreak is connected with an experimental vaccine trial at the research lab at Kenema.

Supreme Court denies gay marriage appeals

The Supreme Court has turned away appeals from five states seeking to prohibit same-sex marriages, paving the way for an immediate expansion of gay and lesbian unions.

The justices on Monday did not comment in rejecting appeals from Indiana, Oklahoma, Utah, Virginia and Wisconsin.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I find it hard to believe that so many people scream about the need for population control and yet fail to realize humans have a natural built-in population control mechanism in homosexuality. Careful study of history clearly shows that as social stress increases, the per-capita incidence of homosexuality increases. Maybe instead of "tolerating" the gays we should realize that they are indispensable to the long term survival of the human race!

From Ukraine to Syria: UN’s Selective Defense of Human Rights

For the past several years, the United Nations has served as a platform for Syria’s enemies to air allegations of human rights abuses and even attempts to use such allegations to justify military aggression against Syria itself. Tales of “barrel bombs” being used against civilians, the bombardment of enemy positions at the cost of civilian lives and the destruction of vital infrastructure have all been constructs in the West’s narrative against the Syrian government.

Now that the US is itself bombing Syria, killing Syrians including innocent men, women and children, as well as vital infrastructure local populations depend on for their survival, the UN has grown suddenly quiet.

HOLIDAYS IN ISRAEL ~~ A TIME TO LOVE OR TO HATE

Preparations are underway to usher in a week long holiday in Israel. It is called Succot, or The Feast of the Tabernacles. We eat all of our meals in little booths and the ceilings are usually made of tree branches, allowing the sky to be visible. It is a reminder of the 40 years we roamed in the desert and dwelled in such structures. It is actually quite a fun holiday and a very community oriented one, it is one of my favourites.

A non Jewish visitor to Jerusalem this week might get the impression that the entire city stands in solidarity with the homeless Palestinians illegally evicted from their homes by settlers. Nothing could be further from the truth.

A RABBINICAL LAMENTATION OF THE SEASON FOR THE PEOPLE OF GAZA

The following was written days before the Jewish fast of Tisha B’Av: a day of mourning for the calamities that have befallen the Jewish people over the centuries. Among other things, the traditional Tisha B’Av liturgy includes the chanting Biblical book of Lamentations.

Given the profoundly tragic events currently unfolding in Gaza, I offer this reworking of the first chapter of Lamentations. I share it with the hope that on this day of mourning we might also mourn the mounting dead in Gaza along with what Israel has become.

Snow arrives early in Northwoods

Parts of Wisconsin saw their first flakes of snow for the season Saturday morning as temperatures dipped below freezing.

The accumulating snow was basically confined to the Northwoods where as much as eight-tenths of an inch was detected in Arbor Vitae in Vilas County. Antigo in Langlade County recorded one-tenth of an inch.

Pictures were submitted to FOX 11 by viewers and posted on Facebook.

The first snowfall arrived nearly a month ahead of when residents usually experience any accumulation.

Is vitamin C helpful against Ebola?

Understandably, there are no trials yet testing vitamin C against the Ebola virus, either in the test-tube or real life. However, there are many good reasons to consider that it would be very helpful in the right doses. Currently, the medical/pharmaceutical thrust is towards creating a vaccine or a drug treatment, most likely involving the injection of large amounts of anti-Ebola antibodies. The few labs that do have access to testing Ebola are unlikely to be testing the effects of vitamin C on Ebola any time soon.

However, two top medical vitamin C experts believe that it could help. As extraordinary as this might sound there is NO VIRUS yet investigated that a sustained high dose of vitamin C, given intravenously, or in high and continuous oral doses, hasn't killed off or substantially suppressed.

U.S.Doctor Successfully Treated for Ebola Hospitalized

A Massachusetts doctor and missionary who was successfully treated for Ebola he contracted in Africa is back in the hospital with what appears to be a respiratory infection, but doctors don't suspect a recurrence of the virus.

UMass Memorial Medical Center said in a statement that Dr. Richard Sacra was hospitalized Saturday for observation and is in stable condition. He has a cough and conjunctivitis, commonly known as pinkeye, hospital officials said.

Sacra will remain in isolation until doctors have confirmation from tests by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that he is not infected with the virus, the hospital said. Doctors expect to know with certainty by late Monday.

During a segment of Fox News Channel's Saturday night edition of "Justice with Judge Jeanine Pirro," the host discussed a number of aspects with regard to the deadly and frightening Ebola virus that appears to have caught the Obama administration by surprise. Besides lambasting President Barack Obama and his underlings for their alleged contradictory statements and their downplaying the threat to public health and national security, Judge Pirro addressed the treat of weaponized Ebola and the use of a "suicide Ebola carrier" by Islamic terrorists.

THE CDC & THE UN ARE FORCED TO ADMIT THAT EBOLA IS AIRBORNE

This Was Then

The Original CDC Position on How is Ebola Spread

The following was on the CDC website in early September and this is the mantra that the mainstream media is parroting as the “official and irrefutable doctrine of science”.

“The virus is spread through direct contact (through broken skin or mucous membranes) with blood and body fluids (urine, feces, saliva, vomit, and semen) of a person who is sick with Ebola, or with objects (like needles) that have been contaminated with the virus. Ebola is not spread through the air or by water or, in general, by food; however, in Africa, Ebola may be spread as a result of handling bushmeat (wild animals hunted for food) and contact with infected bats.”

The Present CDC Position on How Ebola Is Spread

Those not in the labor force but looking for a job now rose last month: The funny numbers behind the unemployment rate.

Those “not in the labor force” Americans continues to expand while the headline unemployment rate continues to decline. Some pundits will try to argue that this number does not accurately portray those looking for work. Well how about a category called “not in the labor force, want a job now” for categorizing those looking for work? We actually have a category that specifically looks at those not in the labor force but wanting a job today. And that number went up by 90,000 last month while the unemployment rate fell. Depending on how you define a healthy economy, you can find data that largely supports the broad case that most Americans are falling behind while a smaller portion is doing exceptionally well. Some of this is part of the new economic framework of a system largely dependent on financialization. It is odd to see those looking for work rise while the unemployment rate drops.

This baseless accusation should be dismissed immediately upon first glance. It's not even worth the dignity of a rebuttal.

High Court judge calls for U.S. to pardon Pollard

Supreme Court Justice Elyakim Rubinstein has called for the U.S. authorities to pardon Jonathan Pollard, the American who famously pleaded guilty to spying for Israel in 1987.

The call marked a rare public intervention by an Israeli judge into the American legal system. Rubinstein was speaking at a lecture Monday at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy.

At the end of his talk, Rubinstein brought up Pollard, who has served 29 years of a life sentence. Mistakes were made, mainly by the Israelis, but by the Americans as well, and 29 years was enough, he said.

U.S. Patient Aided Pregnant Liberian, Then Took Ill

In a sign of how furiously the disease can spread, an ambulance had come to their house on Wednesday to pick up Sonny Boy. Another ambulance picked up a woman and her daughter from the same area, and a team of body collectors came to retrieve the body of yet another woman — all four appeared to have been infected in a chain reaction started by Marthalene Williams.

A few minutes after the ambulance left, the parents got a call telling them that Sonny Boy had died on the way to the hospital.

Watch Slavoj Zigzag Zizek –

Supposedly the most advanced contemporary philosopher; a genuine essentialist thinker who managed to fool the Jew-prog universe (The Guardian Of Zion, Verso-Books, etc.) for years into believing that he was ‘one of clan,’ meanders until he eventually admits that it is Right Wing politics that appeals to Working Class people.

Zizek is telling the truth, but he manoeuvres clumsily. Zigzag shamelessly wraps his obvious observation with too many apologetics. Very disappointing indeed.

Zigzag Zizek was at the core of my intellectual inspiration two decades ago. But like many others, he decided long ago that it was The Guardian Of Zion that would pay the bills. And indeed, moral and intellectual duplicity has guaranteed him a frequent slot with Amy Goodman and Democracy Later. After all, lying for the cause is a kosher procedure.

Read the genocidal sermon a notable Atlanta rabbi gave this Rosh Hashanah

Last Thursday Rabbi Shalom Lewis of Congregation Etz Chaim in the Atlanta suburb of Marietta, Georgia gave what can only be understood as a call to genocide in his Rosh Hashanah sermon to welcome in the Jewish new year. The sermon, republished in full below, calls for a war on Islam and Muslims worldwide. Lewis says a “holy crusade” against Islam is needed to”exterminate it utterly and absolutely.”

Man Wearing “F**K The Police” Shirt in Court Denied 5th Amendment, Wins Trial Anyway

Citizen journalist Michael Burns recently witnessed a large group of police shutting down a peaceful gathering near highway 27 in Broward County, Florida, at around 1:30 in the morning.

Burns decided to stop and film the encounter, to provide some assistance to the victims who were at risk of having their rights violated by police.

The police on the scene reacted very harshly with Burns, and told him that he was not allowed to film on public property.

When the action in the area had died down, Burns decided to get the names and badge numbers of a few officers and head home. When he got into his car to leave, he was trailed by multiple officers, pulled over, and harassed.

USDA continues secret process of appointing corporate factory farm executives to Organic Standards Board

The NOSB is supposed to be comprised of individuals representing farmers, environmentalists, public interest advocates, handlers, retailers, scientists and a USDA certifying agent, as reported by Natural News. However, one of the nation's leading organic industry watchdog groups has persistently criticized the selection of four NOSB board appointees and the secrecy surrounding their nominations.

"The selection process was conducted in secrecy despite requests to cast sunlight on the decision making and solicit input from a very engaged community of organic farmers, businesses, and consumers," said Will Fantle, the co-director for The Cornucopia Institute.

"We think a more transparent process would ensure the selection of the best and brightest for the various vacancies on the board -- instead of, once again, appeasing the organic corporate lobby."

Russians behind JPMorgan cyberattack: ‘It scared the pants off many people’

The July cyberattack on JPMorgan Chase & Co. that compromised the names, addresses, phone numbers and contact information of over 83 million people are believed to have originated in Russia with at least some level of state approval.

“It could be in retaliation for the sanctions” placed on Russia, one senior official briefed on the intelligence told The New York Times on Saturday. “But it could be mixed motives — to steal if they can, or to sell whatever information they could glean.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Nonsense. In years of cyber attacks on major retailers and banks the NSA has not actually tracked down a single cyber-criminal, and now this senior official "knows" not only that Russia did the J.P. Morgan break-in but that the Russian government approved it? Even if the IP for the attack traces back to Russia, that means nothing. Anyone who has studied the way cyber-criminals operate know they rely on cut-out machines, compromised computers in foreign countries, to mask their true origins. This is just more BS Russia bashing trying to ramp up the wars.

WHY HAVEN'T LAWMAKERS BEEN INDICTED AND CHARGED FOR THIS?

"The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation is encouraging banks to sign up illegal aliens in the banking system, calling the growth of the market "a compelling incentive for U.S. banks to enter this largely untapped market." And the FDIC program demonstrates that unbanked Latin American immigrants can be brought into the financial mainstream.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Setting aside the illegality of this,. what is going on is that the bankers are trying to build a new bottom layer for their financial pyramid by offering loans to illegals, from which they can create new money out of thin air to keep the pyramid going. But that only works if there are new jobs for these new borrowers, which there are not. There are already 90 million legal Americans unable to find work. Every illegal that takes a job takes it away from a legal American. That legal American, in turn, is no longer able to pay back their loans to the banks. So the system will collapse anyway. This is the sort of mess one sees the nation get into when the government starts to believe its own propaganda, such as the claim that unemployment is below 6%!

The U.S. Dares to Criticize Israel

It seems that, perhaps, Israel’s latest slaughter of defenseless Palestinians may have been a bit too much even for the United States to condone. In what may be the U.S.’s harshest, although still quite mild, criticism of its puppet master, President Barack Obama said that the plan to increase illegal settlement building could alienate Israel from ‘even its closest allies’.

There is, of course, no closer ally of Israel than the United States. Israel is able to disdain international law, violate the most basic human rights of Palestinians, slaughter men, women and children, bomb United Nations refugee centers, kill journalists and commit genocide only because of U.S. funding and use of its veto power in the U.N.

But the U.S., this time, went even further in its criticism. State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said that the newly-approved construction would cause the global community to ‘question Israel’s ultimate commitment to a peaceful negotiated settlement’ with Palestinians.

Report: ISIS plots to seize Iran’s nuclear secrets

The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) militant group is planning on seizing Tehran’s nuclear secrets and urging its fighters to plan for war with Iran, UK weekly newspaper The Sunday Times informed, Al Arabiya News reported.
