The “New Thirty Years War” in the Middle East – A Western Policy of Chaos?

By Steven MacMillan

The Middle East has been in a state of chaos for years now, with each passing year bringing a new wave of instability, carnage and human suffering to the people of the region. From Afghanistan to Iraq, Libya to Syria, Western foreign policy has directly caused or exacerbated much of the chaos we see in the region today and has contributed to a growing trend of instability.

A pertinent question of our time, however, is whether this instability and destabilization is a result of inept strategy by Western nations, or a calculated strategy by the West to intentionally create chaos, balkanize nations and increase sectarian tensions in the region?...

Thousands Demand Netanyahu’s Arrest for War Crimes

Snip: Deir Yassin and dozens of other massacres removed Palestinians for Jews. Israeli “War of Independence” forces committed massive ethnic cleansing and genocidal slaughter. Palestinians commemorate the Nakba. Words can't explain the horror.

Israel’s entire history is blood-drenched - responsible for virtually every kind of criminal atrocity imaginable. Netanyahu is the latest in a long line of rogue leaders, the worst of the bunch - fascist, racist, exceeding Sharonian evil.

[...]

Sign the petition if you’re a UK citizen or resident. (Others aren’t eligible). Demand Netanyahu’s arrest, detention and prosecution. Repeat the process for Obama, Bush and top officials in their administrations.

Prepared to spend USD 1 billion on campaign if needed: Donald Trump

Donald Trump, American real estate tycoon and a Republican presidential front-runner, has said he is even prepared to splurge up to USD 1 billion if needed on his campaign.
Trump said he does not have to worry about pleasing lobbyists like other candidates because his race is self-funded. The businessman said he recently turned down USD 5 million from a lobbyist wanting to contribute to his campaign.
The 69-year-old real-estate mogul said yesterday that he is prepared to spend USD 1 billion on his campaign if necessary.

German FM calls for immediate meeting of parties to Ukrainian conflict and OSCE

Germany’s Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier suggests organising as soon as possible a meeting of military representatives of the parties to the Ukrainian conflict and OSCE.
"The situation in Ukraine’s east is potentially explosive," he said in an interview with Germany’s Bild am Sonntag. "Last week, during conversations with the Ukrainian and Russian foreign ministers I suggested organising not in two weeks, but as soon as possible, a meeting of military representatives of the conflicting sides and of OSCE in order to discuss how it may be possible to defuse the situation and to achieve withdrawal of the weapons."
"Quite a lot is at stake," the foreign minister said. "If the two parties to the conflict now do not demonstrate adherence to the peace process, a new round of military escalation may happen any moment."

Firefox stealthily loads webpages when you hover over links -- here's how to stop it

Pre-fetching or caching of web pages is a technique used by many web browsers to improve perceived performance -- it's nothing new. But Firefox takes a slightly sinister and stealthy approach. Simply hover your mouse over a link and the browser fires off requests to the associated website in the background.

While this sounds potentially helpful, it is also something of a privacy and security concern -- not to mention a waste of bandwidth. You might hover over a link simply to check out the destination in the status bar; if there is a link to a malicious or unsavory website, you probably don’t want these stealthy connections being made in the background. If you're worried about your security or privacy, or just want to be back in control of your web connection, there are steps you can take.

The Business of Biotech: Engineering the Genome for Fun and Profit

snip: If all of this sounds like a lot of work, it is. If it sounds like the switch to 100% non-GMO foods will be a gradual process of weaning yourself off of certain products and sourcing appropriate alternatives, it will. If it sounds like there’s no one to blame at the end of the day for not starting to take these steps, there isn’t. In the end, we can’t directly determine what’s happening in our neighbor’s house (let alone what’s happening in other countries or other continents), but the buck stops where it has always stopped: at our own kitchen table.

We still have the freedom to choose (for the most part) what we put in our mouth and what we don’t. And unless we start taking that freedom seriously as the responsibility that it is, there will be no end to the GMO agenda.

Legal scholars warn against 10 year prison for online pirates - The proposed extension is disproportionate, ineffective and puts casual file-sharers at risk of long jail sentences, they argue.

The UK Government plans to increase the maximum prison sentence for online copyright infringement to ten years.
The current maximum of two years is not enough to deter infringers, lawmakers argue.
The new proposal follows a suggestion put forward in a study commissioned by the UK Intellectual Property Office (IPO) earlier this year.

Hillary's emails WERE backed up to another server – and it may still exist – as the FBI works to figure out how well the data was scrubbed

Tens of thousands of emails once housed on former secretary of state Hillary Clinton's private computer server were moved to another device after a Colorado company took possession of the device in 2013, leaving open the possibility that copies of messages Clinton later chose to delete might still exist.

The FBI seized the server this week in a stunning move, signaling a new intensity in the investigation into whether Clinton knowingly send or received top-secret classified information through her private address while she was America's top diplomat.

Bloomberg reported Thursday night that Barbara Wells, an attorney for Platte River Networks, Inc., confirmed that while the server hardware now controlled by the FBI 'is blank and does not contain any useful data,' its contents could still be safe and sound elsewhere.

Israeli occupation comes to Paris as police suppress “Tel Aviv beach” protest

A propaganda event in Paris on Thursday was supposed to showcase Tel Aviv as a beacon of fun and tolerance.

Instead, “Tel Aviv sur Seine” (Tel Aviv on the Seine) turned into more of a real life taste of Israeli military occupation and a public relations disaster for its organizers.

The party at a simulated beach on the banks of the River Seine was supposed to celebrate “Israeli nightlife” and carefree living. Instead it was surrounded by hundreds of riot police and only accessible through a checkpoint.

California Now Wants to be First State to Mandate Adult Vaccines – Criminal Penalties for those Who Refuse

In a brazen act of medical tyranny, California recently became the first state in the U.S. where lawmakers removed religious exemptions to those opposing vaccines for their children. The bill now signed into law, SB277, faces legal hurdles in court next.

Now, legislators in California want to pass the “first US adult vaccine mandate with NO personal exemptions and CRIMINAL penalties for failure to comply.” SB 792, would eliminate an adult’s right to exempt themselves from one, some, or all vaccines, a risk-laden medical procedure.

Planned Parenthood - But it's LEGAL!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Following my video "A Quick Question" I received a lot of hate emails bemoaning the fact that my mother had not aborted me, threatening to remove my manly apparatus as a threat to humanity, and chastising me for criticizing Planned Parenthood with the excuse that everything Planned Parenthood is doing is 100% legal. That last point is in some doubt. It does appear that in altering the method of abortion to obtain more salable material, and in failing to provide care for babies that survived the abortion procedure, Planned Parenthood is in fact in violation of Federal law.

That being said, I pondered the validity of allowing law to supersede our own moral sense. History has shown that nations which try to legislate moral issues destabilize themselves.

In the end, this video is my reply to those who defend the actions of Planned Parenthood solely on the excuse that it is, at least superficially, legal.

Indoor public pools have “naked days.” There are naked mountain hiking trails. In the winter, some places offer naked sledding.

I'm coming as an American citizen". To which the agent replied "No, no, you belong with the Palestinian people. This is our Israel, this is for the Jews. No Palestinian should come to Israel. You should have gone through the Allenby Bridge".

Top executive at Hillary's server company was sued for 'fraud' after 'receiving proceeds' from $500m Ponzi scheme run by Backstreet Boys impresario

A top executive at the Internet company hired by Hillary Clinton to manage her private email server is an alleged fraudster who was an executive for one of the most notorious Ponzi fraudsters in recent history.

David DeCamillis is said to have been paid $1.5 million as a director of a company run by Lou Pearlman, the disgraced music impresario who discovered The Backstreet Boys and NSync.

DeCamillis was accused of 14 counts of fraud and one count of unjust enrichment when Pearlman’s business was exposed as a $500 million scam.

DeCamillis then got a job at Denver, Colorado, based Platte River Networks as their vice president of sales and marketing whilst Pearlman began serving a 25 year jail term.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The story gets even better. Platte River Networks is in legal trouble for stealing US Government phone numbers and in some cases actually interfering with the phone lines themselves, suggesting an espionage operation! Possibly as a means to reduce their own legal difficulties, Platte River Networks has informed officials that the Clinton email server had a clone, to which the entire contents of the server in Clinton;s house were copied before the "sanitation" and deletions began.

Swallowed by the sea: How ten years after Katrina, Louisiana's fishing towns are disappearing into the Gulf of Mexico

Rocky Morales is watching his small Louisiana town of Delacroix slowly melt into the water. The woods where he played hide-and-seek as a boy are gone. It's all water and mud back there now. So, too, is the nearby marsh where townsfolk once trapped for muskrat, otter and mink.

Many of the fishermen who once lived here — his friends and relatives — have disappeared as well, fleeing behind the intricate levee system protecting New Orleans out of fear that one more hurricane will be all it takes to send the rest of Delacroix into the sea.

Ten years after Hurricane Katrina ravaged the Gulf Coast - killing more than 1,830 people and causing more than $150billion in damage in the nation's costliest disaster - New Orleans has been fortified by a new $14.5-billion flood protection system.

Family history hounds Jeb Bush on campaign trail

When Jeb Bush stepped up onto the fabled soapbox at the Iowa State Fair on Friday, fairgoers pelted him with questions about the legacy of his brother, a former president. And his father, another former president. And one of his foreign policy advisers, Paul D. Wolfowitz, the architect of his brother’s war in Iraq. And about the war itself.

Under a blazing sun, Bush expressed irritation with what he called “the parlor game” of focusing on Wolfowitz and other past Bush administration advisers who have resurfaced for this Bush campaign.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Jeb Bush might have been able to distance himself from the pro-war records of his father and brother, had he not hired Wolfowitz! In any event, Americans understand that the Oval Office is not an hereditary office to be handed back and forth between two dynastic royal families!

The Truth Avoided by Mainstream Media Liars

My factual demolition of the anti-Snowden story has been read by hundreds of thousands of people, very probably millions, around the internet, 50,000 so far on this site alone, and tweeted by thousands of people. It has been tweeted at – repeatedly – every single mainstream media journalist who has been repeating the government propaganda.

The extraordinary thing is that no jurnalist, anywhere, has made any attempt to deny the facts I give. Not one journalist in the entire crowd of corporate media paid lackeys at the BBC, Sunday Times, Reuters or anywhere at all has addressed or tried to refute the facts which make it impossible that their Snowden story is true. They have not addressed it in their publications or even tried to defend themselves on social media. Not one journalist, not anywhere. (One or two have pointed out that the fifth point is an ad hominem, which is true. Not all ad hominems are invalid, but the first four facts destroy the argument anyway).

Article 10 of the Minsk II Accords states the following:

Pullout of all foreign armed formations, military equipment, and also mercenaries from the territory of Ukraine under OSCE supervision. Disarmament of all illegal groups.

British Jewish MP blasts would-be Labor Party head for ‘anti-Semitic’ ties

A Jewish politician from Britain’s Labor Party said the views of Jeremy Corbyn, the frontrunner to head the party, are cause for “serious concern.”

Ivan Lewis, the shadow, or minority, party cabinet minister who is also a former chief executive of the Manchester Jewish Federation, urged his party not to vote for Corbyn.

“Some of [Corbyn’s] stated political views are a cause for serious concern,” Lewis said in letter to his local party members on Friday, according to the Guardian. “At the very least he has shown very poor judgment in expressing support for and failing to speak out against people who have engaged not in legitimate criticism of Israeli governments but in antisemitic rhetoric.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is actually a good thing. The people of nations around the globe are starting to wake up to the fact that their governments have been subverted or are being subverted by Israel. Netanyahu's over-the-top determination to have his whores in the US Congress derail the Iran P5+1 deal have made it clear to Americans that Washington DC is a puppet ruler for a foreign power, and that is not something Americans take kindly to, as the British may recall from some 230 years ago!

Donald Trump Called to Jury Duty in Manhattan

Mr. Trump has been summoned to serve in State Supreme Court in Manhattan, and plans to report there on Monday morning, said Michael Cohen, an executive vice president at the Trump Organization and special counsel to Mr. Trump.

Despite Mr. Trump’s busy campaign schedule — he is set to appear at the Iowa State Fair on Saturday and has pledged to give fairgoers free rides on his personal helicopter from the parking lot — Mr. Cohen said that his bid for the Republican nomination would not be slowed by whatever time, if any, he might end up sitting on a jury.

“Despite the time that Mr. Trump is required to fulfill this civic obligation, the campaign will continue to go on,” Mr. Cohen said. “He is happy to comply with his civic obligation.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I do not for one second believe that the timing of this jury duty is just a coincidence, and I will wager a plugged Turkish piaster that Trump gets stuck on some trial that will drag out for months, to keep him from making speeches!

Scotland's winter snow STILL hasn't melted: Incredible network of tunnels and caves clings to mountains after the cold summer

A cold summer in Scotland has led to this incredible natural phenomenon - with ice and snow which still hasn't melted forming a network of icy tunnels and caves clinging to the edge of mountains.

Experts say an unusual mix of circumstances has produced a stunning world of snow tunnels and bridges towering higher than a double-decker buses in the Cairngorms National Park

A range of factors has seen a growing number of snow patches remaining since 2007, but this summer there are more than have been seen for 20 years.

The US Air Force is sending 12 A-10 Warthogs to eastern Europe to deter Russian aggressionRead more: http://www.businessinsider.com/air-force-sending-planes-to-east-europe-2015-8#ixzz3ityOETdS

The Air Force didn’t help its long-standing argument that the A-10 Thunderbolt II attack jet should be retired when the service announced this week it would deploy more of the aircraft to Europe this fall.

The 23rd Wing at Moody Air Force Base in Georgia announced it will send 12 attack planes and crews to Central and Eastern European to bolster NATO’s “Operation Atlantic Resolve,” an ongoing show of military might meant to deter Russian aggression in the region.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

WHAT "Russian aggression"?!?!? Can someone, please, show me some incontrovertible facts, proving that this has happened?!?

This demonizing of Russia appears to be a prelude to a hot war against it by NATO and the US. This is simply pre-positioning of equipment toward that end.

TV flickers as viewers find new screens

The second quarter is always tough for the pay-TV industry, as families move home and college students disconnect, but this time it was the worst on record for net customer losses: an estimated 566,000 people cut the cord. With the exception of Verizon, which is still rolling out its video service, all pay-TV companies lost subscribers during the quarter.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As an industry professional for much of my life, I can tell you a few things that have gone wrong. The most obvious is that cable TV has little if any new content. Every time I go through the channel list, I see repeats of things I have seen before, usually timed to support the latest remake, which if you think about it, actually undermines the desire to go see yet another retelling of the same story. How many times can anyone watch the Bourne Tedium, or Iron Man? Even the new pay-per-view movies seem to be nothing but remakes of things seen before, and Hollywood seems unable to come up with a truly interesting film these days, in part because films have to be politically correct (a black human torch in the latest Fantastic Four), cater to Washington DC's (and Tev Aviv's) propaganda agenda, have plenty of product placements to keep the marketing department happy, then have the script stripped of anything that might offend anyone on the planet, anywhere, at any time. A process like that is guaranteed to produce a lot of commercial repetitive mush, and it is the rare film indeed that manages to survive the current production process with anything resembling an interesting story still intact.

Police Threaten Journalists, Targeted, Abused and Arrested in Ferguson for “Doing Their Job”

They demand no media reports on everything they want suppressed. Since Ferguson protests erupted on the one-year anniversary of Michael Brown’s murder by killer cop Darren Wilson, journalists again were targeted.

This week alone, three were arrested and charged with interfering with on-duty police officers. What’s happening reflects war on responsible journalism – criminalizing reporters for doing their job.

On Tuesday, Canadian TV (CTV) Los Angeles Bureau Chief Tom Walters was charged with interfering with police nearly a year after he was arrested covering Ferguson protests last August.

At the time, he was pinned to the ground and handcuffed – then detained after asking Missouri Highway Patrol Capt. Ron Johnson a question. Video recorded his arrest. He was then released uncharged after over eight hours in detention.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The whorespondents on the alleged "TV news" are failing to mention this outrage against reporters in Ferguson; they are not mentioning that Ukraine is shelling Donbass with white phosphorus weapons, provided by the US government; and they are not mentioning the horrific conditions in Gaza and the West Bank under which Palestinians are suffering.

These people do not want to give you the information you need to make informed, rational decisions; they want to keep you beholden to the lies that the government is truthful, and will only do things "for the good of the nation".

And the point of realization that you have been lied to , all these years, will make you realize that there is a very severe "disconnect" between what you are told, and are supposed to believe, by these outlets, and what the truth and reality on the ground is, around the world.

In latest thrust at Obama, Netanyahu names UN ambassador who trashed him and said Palestinians can have ‘Facebook state’

In the midst of his battle with President Obama over the Iran Deal, Israel’s prime minister announced today that he will appoint as the country’s next ambassador to the U.N. a far-right politician who has been outspoken against Obama and who wants to annex the West Bank. Haaretz:

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced Friday that he will appoint Science, Technology and Space Minister Danny Danon as Israel’s next ambassador to the United Nations due to the UN platform’s current significance.

Netanyahu fired Danon as deputy foreign minister in July 2014 when Danon said that Netanyahu was being too restrained in his attack on Gaza, which was then producing imagery of slaughtered children around the world.

Fatah: Israel attempts to turn PA into expanded municipality

Member of Fatah executive committee Mohamed Ishtea said on Friday that Israel does not want a Palestinian state based upon the 1967 borders because it recognises that this would contribute to its end, Qudsnet reported.

During the inauguration of a conference about Palestinian refugees in the refugee camp of Ayda in the West Bank, he said that Israel wants the Palestinians to remain living in small scattered cantons.

Ishtea stressed that the Oslo Agreement happened during a very difficult political situation for the Arab countries, noting that there was a number of positive points in the agreement such as the return of 150,000 Palestinian refugees and the establishment of the state.

Meanwhile, he said that there are many negative points in the agreement, which have to be corrected by spreading national awareness and rebuilding the PLO, thus enabling it to carry out its role as a home for all the Palestinians.

The War in Donbass. Kiev Deploys Tanks and Rocket Launchers

Yesterday Donetsk was hit by a record 800 artillery shells. The Telmanovo suburb was hit particularly hard, but the shelling was also very violent in the airport region. At least one local was killed and 2 wounded by the shelling. Meanwhile, Kiev has been continuing to pull its forces to the contact line. These forces include tanks and artillery systems, even multiple rocket launchers. The vice-speaker of the People’s Council Denis Pushilin informed that if Kiev escapes from the Minsk agreement the war will blaze up at any moment and it can touch not only Donbass. However, the vice-commander of Defense Ministry Corps Eduard Basurin didn’t confirm the information about full alert of the DPR’s Army.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Poroshenko has lost it; he is shelling civilian homes, hospitals, and schools, all of which are, by definition, war crimes.

46 million Americans go to food banks, and long lines for dwindling food supplies begin at 6:30 AM

Those that run food banks all over America say that demand for their services just continues to explode. It always amazes me that there are still people out there that insist that an “economic collapse” is not happening. From their air-conditioned homes in their cushy suburban neighborhoods they mock the idea that the U.S. economy is crumbling. But if they would just go down and visit the local food banks in their areas, they would see how much people are hurting. According to Feeding America spokesman Ross Fraser, 46 million Americans got food from a food bank at least one time during 2014. Because the demand has become so overwhelming, some food banks are cutting back on the number of days they operate and the amount of food that is given to each family. As you will see below, many impoverished Americans are lining up at food banks as early as 6:30 in the morning just so that they can be sure to get something before the food runs out.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Take a good, hard look at the faces of these kids; are they and their families "enjoying recovery", or have the parents awakened one morning to find out that their jobs have been offshored/outsourced to the cheapest source of global labor?!?

Ukrainian Military Using Phosphorous Bombs Against Civilians in Donbass

The Russian Investigative Committee has obtained evidence proving that the Ukrainian armed forces have used modern analogues of phosphorous bombs against civilians in southeastern Ukraine, Investigative Committee spokesman Vladimir Markin said in Moscow on Friday.

Agribusiness giant Monsanto - best known for their genetically modified soybeans and “probably carcinogenic” herbicide - has supplied the US government with white phosphorous used in incendiary weapons for at least 20 years, and some of that made its way to Israel for use in Operation Cast Lead.

Monsanto Linked to Israel's Illegal Use of White Phosphorous in Gaza War
“We have received irrefutable evidence of the use by the Kiev forces of weaponry similar to phosphorus bombs,” Markin said, based on the conclusion of a forensic chemical analysis from soil samples provided by witnesses in the targeted areas.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And from where, please, are the Ukrainians getting these weapons, banned by international treaty?!? From the US government, of course.

As reported in washingtonsblog.com in an article published 5 December, 2014:

In a remarkable disjunction between voters and their elected (supposed) representatives in the U.S. House of Representatives, the members of the House voted on December 4th, by 411 “Yea” to 10 “Nay,” to donate U.S. weapons to the bankrupt Ukrainian Government, which is engaged in trying to eliminate the civilian population of the portion of Ukraine that had voted 90% for the former Ukrainian President whom the U.S. Government (CIA, State Department, USAID, etc.) had overthrown in a violent coup in February of this year. How can the Russian Government stand by and merely watch while Russia’s supporters right next door to them in Ukraine are being exterminated? However, now clearly, the U.S. Government seems to be overwhelmingly committed to exterminating them. There are even cluster-bombs, and white phosphorous, and also more-advanced forms of incendiary munitions, that are being used to get rid of the residents there. But mostly, it’s just the routine type of military mass-murder. (Those are the ‘terrorists’ that Ukraine and its sponsors are constantly referring to including in their standard phrase for the extermination-campaign: “Anti-Terrorist Operation,” or ATO for short. That’s the sales-phrase by which they market it to suckers everywhere. And these are the ‘terrorists.

The bottom line here is that the US government voted to aid and abet serial genocide in the breakaway provinces, by providing these weapons, and Poroshenko is using them with reckless abandon.

So far, Putin has not taken the bait the US government has thrown down for him, in terms of a direct military confrontation over Ukraine.

But were I a betting woman, I would bet that Putin's response will be asymmetrical, and economic in its nature.

As reported at goldcore.com, 22 July 2015:

With all the focus on the Chinese lowballing their total institutional gold holdings, combined CIC, SAFE and PBOC, this week and the continuing attacks and manipulation of the gold market on Sunday night, the latest large increase in Russia’s gold reserves has gone largely unnoticed and barely covered by commentators – especially the more vocal bearish ones. Russia continues to add to its gold reserves and added another 800 million ounces in June or another 25 metric tonnes, and analysts believe this buying will continue in the coming months. Its total gold reserves now amount to 41 million ounces or around 1,275 metric tonnes, with a current value of just $48 billion. Russia’s total FX reserves are $362 billion and their gold allocation is now 13% of their total reserves. In contrast, the U.S. is believed to have over 8,400 metric tonnes of gold and no foreign exchange reserves. The share of gold in foreign exchange reserves is much lower than in many other countries such as the U.S., Italy and France.

This is very simple; when the economy in the US implodes, (and this is a case of when, not if), Russia will be ready to take care of its government and its people, because it has such a huge gold reserve.

Pentagon Seeks More Funds for ‘Sustained’ War With Russia

In the eternal quest to drive up the already preposterous level of US military spending, Pentagon officials are talking up the notion of Russia as an “existential threat” to the United States, and running tabletop war games which they say show the US military isn’t as “ready as we want to be” for a sustained ground war in Russia.

That the US and Russia each have enough nuclear weapons to annihilate most life on the planet has long made the war-gaming for a long US-Russia war ultimately pointless: no one would survive long enough to enjoy the “win” anyhow. That hasn’t stopped the Pentagon from envisioning protracted campaigns on Russian soil with conventional weaponry.

The conclusion: most Pentagon officials figure the US would almost certainly defeat Russia in this drawn-out war, but after drawn-out wars in Iraq and Afghanistan it is “not a sure bet.” That’s a problem looking for a solution, and at the Pentagon, the solution is always only a few hundred billion dollars away.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks like the Pentagon is ramping up for war without end, at a point where homelessness and malnutrition, particularly for American kids, has soared, and where US infrastructure is crumbling.

The American people have become all but irrelevant and completely useless to those in Congress and the military.

And just because the US outspends Russia on weaponry is absolutely no guarantee that it will work as well, or better, than Russian military equipment. In fact, cost many times, is very high for US weapons, and the weapons do not work at all as advertised.

The Queen after learning of Princess Di's car crash: "Someone must have greased the brakes"

Shocking claims in a new royal biography claim the Queen responded to reports of Princess Diana's car crash in Paris by saying 'someone must have greased the brakes'.

Diana was killed in the crash in August 1997 - triggering national mourning and some criticism of the Royal Family's unemotional reaction to the tragedy.

A new book by royal biographer Ingrid Seward claims the Queen made the remark after she initially heard news Diana had been injured in a crash.

While The UK Panicked Over Calais Migrants, Hundreds Of Others Died At Sea

While Britain has been in uproar over hundreds of migrants trying to storm the Channel Tunnel and enter the U.K. in recent weeks, a much larger and more deadly crisis has been taking place on another European shore.

Around 3,000 people, mostly from countries in Africa, Asia and the Middle East, reside in a squalid camp in France's Calais known as the Jungle, waiting for a chance to reach Britain. The long-ignored crisis escalated last month as ever larger groups of migrants used the cover of night to try to climb through fences and push back police in an attempt to sneak into the EuroTunnel.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US and its minions have been waging war, sometimes overtly, sometimes covertly, against so many countries in the Middle East, South and Central America, Africa, and Asia, that it is a wonder we don't have more externally displaced people who can never go home again.

But where is the compassion for these people, translated into just, humane policies with which to alleviate their distress?!?

That, in the bluster of France and Britain against them, is nowhere to be found.

Jewish History, Jewish Religion

When the Roman historian Tacitus pointed out 19 centuries ago that the Jews are unique among the peoples of the world in their intense hatred and contempt for all peoples but their own, he was only repeating what many other scholars had discovered before him. For the next 1,900 years other investigators came to similar conclusions, either from a study of the Jews' religious writings or from a study of the Jews' behavior toward non-Jews.

Notable among these was the reformer, Martin Luther, who in 1543 wrote in "Von den Juden und Ihren Lugen":

Barber Gives Free Cuts To Kids Who Read Aloud In His Chair, And It’s Shear Genius

An Iowa barber has developed a creative way to get kids reading.

Courtney Holmes, a barber in Dubuque, offered free haircuts to kids who read out loud to him during an appointment on Saturday, USA Today reported. The initiative was part of a back to school event, and Holmes hopes the storytelling will help young students strengthen their reading skills.

"The kids would come in, and I would say, 'Go to the table and get a book you might like, and if you can't read it, I'll help you understand and we can read it together,'" Holmes told the news outlet.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

With so much going so badly around the world, it is nice, for at least a moment, to focus on someone who is doing a great thing for kids.

Bravo, Mr. Holmes: well done!!
