Egg industry trade group illegally fixed prices by artificially restricting supply, lawsuit alleges

That certification stamp on egg cartons is supposed to be a sign of quality, but according to a new lawsuit, an egg industry trade group called United Egg Producers, was using the stamp of certification as a manipulative tool. UEP coerced egg producers to join as members of their cult and engage in price-fixing in order to receive the certification stamp. If egg producers didn't follow along, then supermarkets were less likely to accept the uncertified, unstamped egg cartons.

Why the Dollar May Remain Strong For Longer Than We Think

For those understandably disgusted by the reckless expansion of the US money supply over the past six years, it's vitally important to remember that the road to our monetary endgame is not a straight line, nor necessarily intuitive.

Congressman predicts many more 9/11s in US, other countries

A Democratic congressman has said that the United States could risk more attacks similar to the September 11, 2001 in the country if Congress does not act against ISIL. "I understand that my colleagues are war weary. I'm war weary. I understand the American people are war weary," Rep. Eliot Engel of New York said on Tuesday.

"But I think doing nothing would invite something very similar that happened to my city, New York City, on that fateful day of Sept. 11, 2001," he added. The top Democrat on the House Foreign Affairs Committee also warned that the threat of an attack extended beyond his country.

"If we do nothing, ISIS (or ISIL) will plot and plan and we'll have many more 9/11s in the United States, in Europe, in the Middle East," Engel said.

Scottish police deny presstitutes' claims that independence campaign is leading to increased crimes & disorder

In response to increased press reports and comment implying increased crime and disorder as a consequence of the Independence Referendum Brian Docherty, Chairman of the Scottish Police Federation said:

“The Police Service of Scotland and the men and women who work in it should not be used as a political football at any time and especially so in these last few hours of the referendum campaign.

As I have previously stated the referendum debate has been robust but overwhelmingly good natured.

It was inevitable that the closer we came to the 18th of September passions would increase but that does not justify the exaggerated rhetoric that is being deployed with increased frequency. Any neutral observer could be led to believe Scotland is on the verge of societal disintegration yet nothing could be further from the truth.

American man suing to seize Gaza flotilla ships

The US Court of Appeals heard a case on Monday filed by an American terror victim who is seeking to seize 14 vessels that participated in the 2010 Gaza flotilla. The suit, which was originally filed in June 2011 by Dr. Alan Bauer, seeks to confiscate the 14 ships on the grounds that they were used in a hostile fashion against a nation friendly to the United States.

Israeli naval commandos boarded the boats that departed from Turkey in May 2010 after they disobeyed instructions from the Israel Defense Forces. The commandos immediately faced violent resistance upon boarding the main vessel, the Mavi Marmara. Ten Israeli commandos were injured and 10 Turkish activists were killed in the ensuing conflict.

US police get antiterror training in Israel on privately funded trips

The clouds of tear gas, flurries of projectiles and images of police officers outfitted in military-grade hardware in Ferguson, Missouri, have reignited concerns about the militarization of domestic law enforcement in the United States.

But there has been another, little-discussed change in the training of American police since the 9/11 attacks: At least 300 high-ranking sheriffs and police from agencies large and small – from New York and Maine to Orange County and Oakland, California – have traveled to Israel for privately funded seminars in what is described as counterterrorism techniques.

Argentina Cancer Deaths Well Above the National Average in Heavily GMO-Planted Areas

Argentinean farmers have increased their levels of herbicide spraying of crops, and the results don’t look good. A huge increase in cancer incidence is being reported in Argentina linked directly to areas of heavy GMO crop engineering and high biotech herbicide use.

The Ministry of Health in Córdoba, Argentina, reveals in a report that deaths from cancerous tumors are double the national average in areas where genetically engineered crops are grown and agro-chemicals are used.

As reported, the report has documented five successive years of information on cancer increases in the provinces that are experiencing increased elevated rates. The substantial evidence points to GMO-driven agricultural practices as the main culprit, turning our farm lands into a public health hell.

Leaked email reveals ADL advice to universities urging anti-Palestine crackdown

As college students go back to class across the US, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) is urging a renewed crackdown on Palestine solidarity activism on campus – and at least one California university leader appears to be receptive.

University of California, Davis Chancellor Linda Katehi’s office shared an email (full text below) from Seth Brysk, Central Pacific Regional Director for the ADL, with all of her university’s senior leadership on Monday.

The email warns about an upcoming day of action for Palestinian rights and calls for extra security and “discipline.”

It singles out the advocacy group American Muslims for Palestine (AMP) for special attention and makes thinly-veiled allegations of anti-Jewish activity.

The distribution list Katehi’s office sent Brysk’s memo to includes more than two dozen top administrators who make up the Council of Deans and Vice Chancellors, and Nick Crossley, the “emergency manager” of the UC Davis police department.

VANUNU'S PHOTOS OF DIMONA - 1985

Acting on his conscience, he carefully took about 60 photos of the top-secret labs and unique production processes involved. When some of these photos were originally published in the London Sunday Times' exposé, they confirmed his eyewitness testimony about the extent of Israel's nuclear weapons program and revealed Israel to be one of the world's top nuclear powers. To this day, the Israeli government refuses international inspection of Dimona and continues to deny the existence of its nuclear arsenal.

While their publication resulted in Vanunu being locked away for an 18-year prison sentence, his photographs of Israel's nuclear weapons factory - a bold statement against nuclear secrecy and for the abolition of nuclear weapons - are here for all to see.

Note: Any more questions!

Ebola, AIDS Manufactured by Western Pharmaceuticals, US DoD?

Reports narrate stories of the US Department of Defense (DoD) funding Ebola trials on humans, trials which started just weeks before the Ebola outbreak in Guinea and Sierra Leone. The reports continue and state that the DoD gave a contract worth $140 million dollars to Tekmira, a Canadian pharmaceutical company, to conduct Ebola research. This research work involved injecting and infusing healthy humans with the deadly Ebola virus. Hence, the DoD is listed as a collaborator in a “First in Human” Ebola clinical trial (NCT02041715, which started in January 2014 shortly before an Ebola epidemic was declared in West Africa in March. Disturbingly, many reports also conclude that the US government has a viral fever bioterrorism research laboratory in Kenema, a town at the epicentre of the Ebola outbreak in West Africa.

The truth about Israel's secret nuclear arsenal

Israel has been stealing nuclear secrets and covertly making bombs since the 1950s. And western governments, including Britain and the US, turn a blind eye. But how can we expect Iran to curb its nuclear ambitions if the Israelis won't come clean?

Note: Lying is normal for Israel.

Israel’s Worst-Kept Secret

Former CIA Director Robert Gates said so during his 2006 Senate confirmation hearings for secretary of defense, when he noted—while serving as a university president—that Iran is surrounded by “powers with nuclear weapons,” including “the Israelis to the west.” Former President Jimmy Carter said so in 2008 and again this year, in interviews and speeches in which he pegged the number of Israel’s nuclear warheads at 150 to around 300.
But due to a quirk of federal secrecy rules, such remarks generally cannot be made even now by those who work for the U.S. government and hold active security clearances. In fact, U.S. officials, even those on Capitol Hill, are routinely admonished not to mention the existence of an Israeli nuclear arsenal and occasionally punished when they do so.

"Remarks cannot be made about Israel's nuclear weapons.....but you can remark all you want!" Pass it on

Sears Could Be Gone If Slump Lasts Through Christmas

Heavy losses in the second fiscal quarter, things are not looking good for Sears Holdings. These losses are up nearly $400 million since the same time last year, and with only $1 billion in cash and holdings Sears is having a hard time staying afloat. They are quickly burning through $715 in net cash from operations for the first six months this year and with another $116 million of capital assets left, they are quickly losing ground—at the rate of approximately $150 million per month.

This means that Sears could easily run out of money in the next eight months; Fitch Ratings has downgraded their credit from double C to triple C, putting it at the lowest possible end of the credit spectrum for retailers.

Richard III's brutal last moments revealed: Forensics show how doomed king was hacked to death by 11 blows after losing his helmet (and his horse) in the Battle of Bosworth

Richard III was surrounded by soldiers and hacked to death after losing his helmet in battle, analysis of his remains suggests.
Medical scanners were used to establish that the king suffered 11 injuries from enemy soldiers at Bosworth Field in 1485.
The 32-year-old died after two blows to the back of his head – one from a sword and the other from a halberd, a medieval axe-like weapon.

As nine of the injuries were to his skull, researchers at Leicester University suggest he had lost his heavy helmet. The two other injuries may have been inflicted after his armour was torn from his body. Wounds to his buttocks probably came as his bloodied corpse was paraded around the battle ground, they suggest. The medical evidence establishes the most detailed account of Richard III’s death ever attempted and is published today in the Lancet medical journal.
