Unusual event’: Oconee nuclear reactor shut down after transformer explosion & fire

Published time: 7 Mar, 2016 01:02 Edited time: 7 Mar, 2016 02:37

One of the reactors at the Oconee Nuclear Station has been shut down after a series of explosions and a fire damaged a transformed on site. The operator declared the incident “unusual” but emphasized there was no threat of radiation release. Emergency crews deployed at the scene have managed to contain the fire, and will remain at the scene to assist crews. Oconee Nuclear Station is a nuclear power plant located on Lake Keowee near Seneca, South Carolina. “Unit #1 was shut down as a precaution,” Oconee County Emergency Management said in a statement. “There is NO POTENTIAL FOR RELEASE.” The plant operator Duke Energy said that while “Unit 1 has been safely shutdown” the remaining “Units 2 and 3 continue to operate safely.” Officials blamed the “unusual event” on electrical equipment failure inside a transformer they say was located outside the building. Authorities urged the public stay away from the area as emergency personnel and Duke Energy staff work around the area. However they emphasized that there was no security risk that would require evacuations or traffic detours. The transformer malfunctioned and caught fire at 3:20pm local time, and the “unusual event” was upgraded to an “alert” – a second level of emergency – at 4:58pm, according to the company. Incidents falling to “alert” classification require outside interference from emergency services but pose “no threat to public safety,” the company explained. The 15-by-12 foot transformer had been burning for approximately 30 minutes before fire crews and Oconee County Fire units responded, WYFF4 reports. The intense flames and thick black smoke coming out of the transformer which was seen by many witnesses was reportedly due to the oil that was inside. The blaze was completely extinguished with the help of local fire brigades, and had “no impact” on plant employees or the facility’s neighbors, while customers are not expected to suffer any power outages. The operator announced it will be conducting a thorough investigation of the cause of the incident at an aging plant located on Lake Keowee that began operations in 1973. Oconee is one of the largest nuclear power plants in the US with a capacity of some 2,600 megawatts and is the second to have its operating license extended for an additional twenty years.

The FDA now officially belongs to Big Pharma

By Martha Rosenberg AlterNet

Excerpts: It is hard to believe only four senators opposed the confirmation of Robert Califf, who was approved [recently] as the next FDA commissioner. Califf, chancellor of clinical and translational research at Duke University until recently, received money from 23 drug companies including the giants like Johnson & Johnson, Lilly, Merck, Schering Plough and GSK according to a disclosure statement on the website of Duke Clinical Research Institute. Not merely receiving research funds, Califf also served as a high level Pharma officer, say press reports. Medscape, the medical website, discloses that Califf “served as a director, officer, partner, employee, advisor, consultant or trustee for Genentech.” Portola Pharmaceuticals says Califf served on its board of directors until leaving for the FDA. In disclosure information for a 2013 article in Circulation, Califf also lists financial links to Gambro, Regeneron, Gilead, AstraZeneca, Roche and other companies and equity positions in four medical companies. Gilead is the maker of the $1000-a-pill hepatitis C drug AlterNet recently wrote about. This is FDA commissioner material? Califf has gone on record that collaboration between industry and regulators is a good thing. He told NPR, “Many of us consult with the pharmaceutical industry, which I think is a very good thing. They need ideas and then the decision about what they do is really up to the person who is funding the study.” What? He is known for defending Vioxx which is reported to have caused at least 50,000 heart attacks and events before its withdrawal. (Merck is said to have known about Vioxx’ cardio effects but marketed the blockbuster drug anyway.) Califf was also Obama’s choice for FDA Commissioner. Califf’s confirmation amounts to a handover of the agency to Big Pharma.

Former DEA Agent Exposes US Government’s Role in Cocaine Epidemic

Mar 6, 2016

Were the CIA and the U.S. government responsible for devastating American communities by supporting drug traffickers? There is an epidemic of cocaine, heroin, and other drug use in America, and many other drugs are being shipped into the US in greater numbers than ever before. Are the United States government and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) to blame for flooding American communities with cocaine in the 1970’s by covertly supporting the Latin American drug trade? Many retired employees of the CIA, the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), and police, in addition to numerous investigative journalists, believe this to be the truth, and that various U.S. government and CIA officials should be held accountable and even tried. A 25-year veteran of the DEA and author of the book, Triangle of Death, Michael Levine claims the CIA played a key role in allowing the trafficking of drugs, particularly cocaine, into the U.S. from Latin America. Acting as a deep undercover agent for many years of his life, Levine found through first-hand experience that the CIA knew that drugs were being smuggled onto the streets of U.S. cities but did nothing about it. He claims that the Agency even leaked undercover DEA operations to the drug cartels, as he explains in the video below. Other DEA agents have made similar claims. Former DEA head John Lawn, testified that Oliver North, Marine Corps lieutenant colonel who in the 1980’s served on the National Security Council staff at the White House, and other officials, “created a privatized contra network that attracted drug traffickers looking for cover for their operations, then turned a blind eye to repeated reports of drug smuggling related to the contras, and actively worked with known drug smugglers such as Panamanian dictator Manuel Noriega.” Lawn swore under oath that North himself had prematurely leaked a DEA undercover operation, jeopardizing agents’ lives, for political advantage in an upcoming Congressional vote on aid to the contras. (Source) Oliver North, of course, denied any knowledge of the contras involvement in the drug trafficking trade. During the Iran-Contra Congressional Hearing in 1987, when allegations first began, North stated during his opening statement: “Some said I was second only in power to the President of the United States, and others that I condoned drug trafficking to generate funds for the contras, or that I personally ordered assassinations, or that I was conducting my own foreign policy. It has even been suggested that I was the personal confidant of the President of the United States. These, and many other stories, are patently untrue.” (Source) On the Fox News political program Hannity and Colmes, North reclaimed: “The fact is nobody in the government of the United States, going all the way back to the earliest days of this under Jimmy Carter, ever had anything to do with running drugs to support the Nicaraguan resistance. Nobody in the government of the United States. I will stand on that to my grave.” (Source) In the video, Levine refers to North’s diary, which was not presented in front of the Congressional Hearing. North’s diaries, e-mail, and memos were made public by the National Security Archive much later, in February 2004. The documents revealed: Mr. North’s diary entries, from the reporter’s notebooks he kept in those years, noting multiple reports of drug smuggling among the contras. A Washington Post investigation published on 22 October 1994 found no evidence he had relayed these reports to the DEA or other law enforcement authorities. Memos from North aide Robert Owen to Mr. North recounting drug-running “indiscretions” among the contras, warning that a known drug-smuggling airplane was delivering taxpayer-funded “humanitarian aid” overseen by Mr. North. Mr. North’s White House e-mails recounting his efforts to spring from prison a Honduran general who could “spill the beans” on the secret contra war, even though the Justice Department termed the Honduran a “narcoterrorist” for his involvement in cocaine smuggling and an assassination plot. Mr. North’s White House e-mails and diary entries on his personal meeting on 22 September 1986 with Noriega, following up Noriega’s offer to “take care of” the Sandinista leadership if the White House would help “clean up his image.” (Source) What is it about the government and its agents and employees that they can lie to us with impunity, but we risk being sent to jail if we lie to them? The presentation above also features Gary Webb, an investigative reporter for the San Jose Mercury News and author of Dark Alliance: The CIA, the Contras, and the Cocaine Explosion. Nearly a decade after the Iran-Contra Congressional Hearing, through a series of articles published in 1996, Webb created uproar in Southern California communities when he also alleged that the CIA had connections to a drug ring reaching into California. In his published works, Webb alleged that the CIA and many U.S. government officials, including Oliver North, were fully aware that the contras were funneling cocaine into the U.S. He believed that the ties between the two organizations were so close, the contras could be called a CIA ‘subsidiary’ due to the frequency of their meetings with CIA operatives. Webb’s articles were criticized, his career destroyed, and he became the target of government retribution. His death in 2004 was officially deemed a suicide. Oliver North is now a regular presence in mainstream media on the Fox News Channel documentary series, “War Stories with Oliver North,” and other appearances as an expert pundit. The drug war has certainly taken a quantum leap since the 1970’s, and has become a regular feature of our lives, but as many people around the world struggle for its end, the truth about its inception continues to be exposed.

Obama’s Legacy: 5 Million Increase in Households Where No One Works

Posted by mishgea | March 6, 2016 1:45:48 | Economics

Promises Honored Obama promised to do something about rising income inequality. He did. He made matters worse. Income inequality is up by three different measures, and there is a huge five million jump in households in which no one works at all. His policies prove that transfer payments reduce incentives to work and lower incomes. Yet, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders promise the same. How Progressives Drive Income Inequality The Wall Street Journal comments How Progressives Drive Income Inequality. The Census Bureau releases annual updates on income distribution in the U.S., publishing three technical statistical measures — the Gini index, the mean logarithmic deviation of income, and the Theil index — each of which represents inequality levels on a scale of 0 to 1. (zero signifies perfect equality and 1 indicates perfect inequality). By all three measures, inequality rose more under Bill Clinton than under Ronald Reagan. And it wasn’t even close. Barack Obama’s administration follows this pattern, despite the complaints he and his supporters have made about his predecessor. The Gini index rose more than three times as much under Mr. Obama than under Mr. Bush. When this statistic was released, Mr. Obama had only six years as president compared with Mr. Bush’s eight. The spin doctors for Messrs. Clinton and Obama may insist that it wasn’t their fault. But consider their policies. Both Democratic presidents presided over bubble economies fueled by easy monetary policy. There is no better way to make the rich richer than to run policies that push up the price of financial assets. Cheap money is a boon to those who have access to it. Interest rates were also too low under Bush 43, but that bubble was in housing, and the effects were therefore more evenly distributed than under Mr. Clinton’s stock-market bubble or Mr. Obama’s credit bubble. In 1968, government transfer payments totaled $53 billion or roughly 7% of personal income. By 2014, these had climbed to $2.5 trillion—about 17% of personal income. Despite the redistribution of a sixth of all income, inequality measured by all three of the Census Bureau’s indexes is far higher today than in 1968. Transfer payments under Mr. Obama increased by $560 billion. By contrast private-sector wages and salaries grew by $1.1 trillion. So for every $2 in extra wages, about $1 was paid out in extra transfer paymentslowering the relative reward to work. In 2008, during the deepest recession in 75 years, 13.2% of Americans lived below the government’s official poverty line. The Great Recession officially ended in June 2009, but in 2014, after five years of economic expansion, 14.8% of Americans were still in poverty. Research by the Hamilton Project and the Urban Institute show that when families with children making between $20,000 and $50,000 attempt to have a second earner go back to work, the effective tax rate on the extra earnings—including lost government benefits such as food stamps, the earned-income tax credit, and medical support payments—is between 50% and 80%. This phaseout of the ever increasing array of benefits has created a “working-class trap” instead of a “poverty trap” that is increasing inequality and keeping the income of these households lower than they might otherwise be. While the number of two-earner households declined during the first six years of the Obama presidency, the number of single-earner households rose by 2.6 million and the number of households with no earners rose by almost five million. In other words, two thirds of the increase in the number of families under Mr. Obama was accounted for by households with no one working. This is the reason the middle class has shrunk, and the reason inequality has increased. Mish Comments We need to be fair about this. Aside from appointing a Fed Chair, neither Obama nor Bush is responsible for Fed policy. Secondly, I have to wonder how many of that increase of 5 million households where no one is working has to do with voluntary retirement. Of course, we need to ask the same question another way: How much of that increase is due to free handouts, transfer payment policies, and involuntary retirement? Without a doubt, Obama reduced the incentive to work. But coming up with the actual numbers is a bit more complicated than the article implies. Mike “Mish” Shedlock

Coming Soon? This Is What Would Happen If A 9.0 Earthquake Hit The Cascadia Subduction Zone…

By Michael Snyder, on March 6th, 2016

If you live in the Pacific Northwest, you have probably already heard of the Cascadia Subduction Zone. It is where the Juan de Fuca plate meets the North American plate, and it stretches approximately 700 miles from northern Vancouver Island all the way down to northern California. This subduction zone is capable of producing far more powerful earthquakes than the much more famous San Andreas fault in southern California, and scientists tell us that it is only a matter of time before another continent-killing earthquake hits this area. And when it does hit, it will be far worse than any other natural disaster that the United States has ever seen up to this point. According to CNN, “the largest earthquake in the continental United States” took place along the Cascadia Subduction Zone on January 26th, 1700, and one of the reasons why it is considered to be far more dangerous than other west coast faults is because it is also capable of producing massive tsunamis… The Cascadia can deliver a quake that’s many times stronger — plus a tsunami. “Cascadia can make an earthquake almost 30 times more energetic than the San Andreas to start with, and then it generates a tsunami at the same time, which the side-by-side motion of the San Andreas can’t do,” said Chris Goldfinger, a professor of geophysics at Oregon State University. The Cascadia is capable of delivering a 9.0-magnitude quake — an awesome show of force by Mother Nature. So what would that look like? What would a 9.0-magnitude quake that also produced a huge tsunami do to the highly populated northwest coast? According to an article in the New Yorker, the head of the FEMA division that oversees Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Alaska says that “everything west of Interstate 5 will be toast”… If the entire zone gives way at once, an event that seismologists call a full-margin rupture, the magnitude will be somewhere between 8.7 and 9.2. That’s the very big one. …By the time the shaking has ceased and the tsunami has receded, the region will be unrecognizable. Kenneth Murphy, who directs FEMA’s Region X, the division responsible for Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and Alaska, says, “Our operating assumption is that everything west of Interstate 5 will be toast.” In the Pacific Northwest, everything west of Interstate 5 covers some hundred and forty thousand square miles, including Seattle, Tacoma, Portland, Eugene, Salem (the capital city of Oregon), Olympia (the capital of Washington), and some seven million people. Like I said earlier, it would be far worse than any natural disaster that we have ever experienced in the history of the United States up until now. And it could happen at literally any moment. In fact, many scientists believe that we are way overdue for a continent-altering earthquake along the Cascadia Subduction Zone. Tension has been building up there for a very long time, and at some point that tension will be released. A recent piece by Adam Rothstein gives us an idea of what the first few moments of such a quake might look like in the city of Portland, Oregon… Cacophony swells from the city as if it is howling in response to the earth’s call: car alarms, shattering glass, the thudding of bricks popping out of building facades, humans screaming in fright, and far off, echoes of what sound like dumpsters clattering to the ground from the jaws of garbage trucks. It is the sound of shifting foundations and collapsing masonry, continuously, a roar increasing from every direction. It is the sound of the living surfaces that a city takes for granted becoming undone. Since we have not experienced such an earthquake in any of our lifetimes, it is easy to assume that one will never happen. But that is not what the scientists are telling us. In fact, they insist that the odds of “a continent-rending earthquake” in the near future are actually quite good… The Pacific Northwest is due for a continent-rending earthquake. Experts believe the odds of a Big One happening in the next half century are about one in three, the odds of a Very Big One roughly one in ten, and that, in either case, we are disastrously unprepared. And let us not forget that the Cascadia Subduction Zone sits directly along the Ring of Fire, and the Ring of Fire has started to become much more active in recent years. In addition, if the region starts to become more seismically active there is also a very real possibility that we could see a full-blown eruption of Mt. Rainier, which has been described as “the most dangerous mountain in America“. Let us hope that we have as much time as possible before our nation has to deal with such calamities, but the cold, hard truth is that we are certainly not helping matters by acting so wickedly. If we continue to do the same things that we have been doing, it is only a matter of time before the judgment of God comes to our land in a major way. We are killing millions of babies, harvesting their body parts and auctioning those body parts off to the highest bidder. To many Americans that may seem like “old news”, but I assure you that this is not “old news” to God. I don’t think that it was any accident that the series of undercover Planned Parenthood videos that were released last year came out when they did. We were being shown our guilt and we were being given one last chance to repent. There was a congressional hearing about this last Wednesday. The following comes from CNSNews.com… “Have we reached a point in our society where there effectively is an Amazon.com for human parts, entire babies?” Rep. Diane Black (R-Tenn.) asked the witnesses at a special hearing on bioethics and fetal tissue on Wednesday. Dr. Gerard Kevin Donovan, a pediatrician and bioethicist at Georgetown University, responded that the practice of using tissue from aborted babies for government-funded research “shocks my conscience and it should shock the conscience of the nation.” Unfortunately, the buying and selling of harvested baby parts does not shock the conscience of our nation. In fact, most surveys show that an overwhelming percentage of the American people want to continue giving hundreds of millions of tax dollars to Planned Parenthood each year even though they have been doing this. Since we have not responded to God’s calls to repent, all that is left is for Him to shake us. And without a doubt, the shaking is coming soon…

An establishment in panic

Pat Buchanan: 'Never Trump' strategy could bring about GOP's suicide

Published: 4 days ago

Donald Trump “appeals to racism.”

“[F]rom the beginning … his campaign has profited from voter prejudice and hatred” and represents an “authoritarian assault upon democracy.” If Speaker Paul Ryan wishes to be “on the right side of history … he must condemn Mr. Trump clearly and comprehensively. The same goes for every other Republican leader.” “Maybe that would split the (Republican) party,” but, “No job is worth the moral stain that would come from embracing (Trump). No party is worth saving at the expense of the country.” If Republican leaders wish to be regarded as moral, every one of them must renounce Trump, even if it means destroying their party. Who has laid down this moral mandate? The Holy Father in Rome? No. The voice posturing as the conscience of America is the Washington Post, which champions abortion on demand and has not, in the memory of this writer, endorsed any Republican for president – though it did endorse Marion Barry three times for mayor of D.C. Anticipating the Post’s orders, Sen. Marco Rubio has been painting Trump as a “scam artist” and “con artist,” with an “orange” complexion, a “spray tan” and “tiny hands,” who is “unfit to lead the party of Lincoln and Reagan.” The establishment is loving Rubio, and the networks are giving him more airtime. And Rubio is reciprocating, promising that, even if defeated in his home state of Florida on March 15, he will drive his pickup across the country warning against the menace of Trump. Rubio, however, seems not to have detected the moral threat of Trump, until polls showed Rubio being wiped out on Super Tuesday and in real danger of losing Florida. Mitt Romney has also suddenly discovered what a fraud and phony is the businessman-builder whose endorsement he so avidly sought and so oleaginously accepted in Las Vegas in 2012. Before other Republicans submit to the ultimatum of the Post, and of the columnists and commentators pushing a “Never Trump” strategy at the Cleveland convention, they should ask themselves: For whom is it that they will be bringing about party suicide? That the Beltway elites, whose voice is the Post, hate and fear Trump is not only undeniable, it is understandable. The Post beat the drums for the endless Mideast wars that bled and near bankrupted the country. Trump will not start another. The Post welcomes open borders that bring in millions to continue the endless expansion of the welfare state and to change the character of the country we grew up in. Trump will build the wall and repatriate those here illegally. Like the reporting you see here? Sign up for free news alerts from WND.com, America’s independent news network. Trump threatens the trade treaties that enable amoral transnational corporations to ship factories and jobs overseas to produce cheaply abroad and be rid of American employees who are ever demanding better wages and working conditions. What does the Post care about trade deals that deindustrialize America when the advertising dollars of the big conglomerates are what make Big Media fat and happy? The political establishment in Washington depends on Wall Street and K Street for PAC money and campaign contributions. Wall Street and K Street depend on the political establishment to protect their right to abandon America for the greener pastures abroad. Before March 15, when Florida and Ohio vote and the fates of Rubio and Gov. John Kasich are decided, nothing is likely to stop the ferocious infighting of the primaries. But after March 15, the smoke will have cleared. If Trump has fallen short of a glide path to the nomination, the war goes on. But if Trump seems to be the near-certain nominee, it will be a time for acceptance, a time for a cease-fire in this bloodiest of civil wars in the GOP. Otherwise, the party will kick away any chance of keeping Hillary Clinton out of the White House, and perhaps kick away its future as well. While the depth and rancor of the divisions in the party are apparent, so also is the opportunity. For the turnout in the Republican primaries and caucuses has not only exceeded expectations, it has astonished and awed political observers. A new “New Majority” has been marching to the polls and voting Republican, a majority unlike any seen since the 49-state landslides of the Nixon and Reagan eras. If this energy can be maintained, if those throngs of Republican voters can be united in the fall, then the party can hold Congress, capture the While House and reconstitute the Supreme Court. Come the ides of March, the GOP is going to be in need of its uniters and its statesmen. But today, all Republicans should ask themselves: Are these folks coming out in droves to vote Republican really the bigoted, hateful and authoritarian people of the Post’s depiction? Or is this not the same old Post that has poured bile on conservatives for generations now in a panic that America’s destiny may be torn away from it and restored to its rightful owners?

The Perfect Storm in Oil Prices Will Hit in the Ides of March

While some business / economic publications, like NewsMax are saying that, “Oil is pulling away from the market’s biggest storm in seven years,” I say, “Don’t believe it.” Not for one second. The real storm begins near the middle of March. Because people saw that the price of oil rose and stabilized in February and that stocks followed in lockstep, they were quick to conclude the worst is over. The final days of February were, in fact, nothing more than the calm before the main storm. People were, as usual, too quick to sigh in relief, and that relief is likely to make the upset even worse when they find out how wrong they were to think the worst is over. When people believe the worst is over, and suddenly things grow even worse than they already were, they are more likely to panic. We have seen this pattern of human naiveté again and again during the so-called “recovery” from the Great Recession. What really happened in February was a little consolidation, as both oil and stock caught their breath after a long first leg down in prices, but the worst pressures that I’ve been predicting were never set to come in February, but to start in March. I am amazed at how these publications continue parroting each other’s statements that the Saudis and Russians achieved a great agreement to resolve the problem of an oversupply of oil. While NewMax points out the many swings the argument took last month and even that the Saudis and Russians really only agreed not to make the problem worse, the article still seems to come down on the side that this agreement means the oil market has now stabilized and prices will rise to $40 a barrel very shortly. As I’ve laid out in my last article (so won’t go into much detail here), the so-called “pact” between Saudi Arabia and Russia accomplished the exact opposite of what all the parrots are squawking about. US oil production stays at forty-three year high While Saudi Arabia and Russia actually teamed up to make it clear they will not reduce oil production by a single drop to help solve the oil supply problem, four OPEC members, other than Saudi Arabia, also agreed not to make any production cuts. So, oversupply is absolutely certain to continue. What some people don’t realize is that the United States has actually been increasing production during this time. The last time the United States pumped at this present rate was 1972. US oil production has grown 82% since 2008, rising 8% last year alone. Shale-oil producers may be holding up better than the Saudis anticipated because the major oil producers have the muscle and reserve to make it through the present price wars by changing the focus of their current business activities. They are finding bargains in drilling costs now as the smaller producers go out of work and people become willing to work for the major producers for less. This is a good time to drill new wells because drilling produces no oil anyway, making it a good time to devote money in that direction. In a large oil company’s planning, it is something that has to be done for future production, so ramp it now by focusing assets in that direction while the costs are lower, and you’ll be set to make big money when prices move back up and those wells become ready for actual production. All of which means, the major US oil companies are increasing their production capacity as the smaller companies around them fail. The failure of small companies also makes for a good time to get good prices on equipment. It has never been the large oil producers that have been likely to go out of business. The problem is with the numerous small companies that cannot afford to weather a long storm. At least forty smaller companies have shut down since 2014. The rapid growth of many small contractors in the oil industry that fed the US job expansion during the “recovery” period will continue to shrivel, so this consolidation of businesses is bad news right at the heart of the “recovery.” The bonds they have used to finance their expansion will continue to go bust. Many jobs have already evaporated along with the small companies that have blown away in the dusty oil fields. Not all major oil companies, however, are weathering the storm well. Oil production giant, Halliburton, for example, has already cut over 26,000 jobs since its 2014 peak. Halliburton speaks a very different story to the dominant theme in mainstream media that the worst is over: “Our industry has turned down faster than anyone ever expected,” Halliburton CEO Dave Lesar and President Jeff Miller said in a memo to employees obtained by CNNMoney. The execs said it’s now clear that business opportunities will be “much worse than anticipated” coming into the year…. Halliburton has also attempted to cope with cheap oil by consolidating facilities in 20 countries and closing down operations altogether in another two countries. The oil downturn has sent Halliburton’s profits plunging. Its stock price has lost more than half its value since mid-2014 when crude prices peaked. (CNN Money) 26,000 jobs cut by just one company is no small dent in the recovery, and Halliburton doesn’t sound like its outlook for the industry is as good now as it was at the start of the year. In December, production rates finally did start to fall a little in the US as the toll taken by the initial storm finally started to become visible. Production rates are still falling. While the industry is finally starting to feel the crush, that’s not going to be enough reduction in production to help the price of oil in the near future. The US decline in production is minor so far, and the coming combined storms are major. This month, three storms will converge upon those businesses who focus on the production side of oil. March madness begins in the maintenance season for oil I’ve been pointing out for the past couple of months that we were nearing the oil industry’s huge annual maintenance season. This month, we enter it. The big refineries typically shut down a number of operations in March, after heating oil demands and oil-fired electricity demands are down and before summer travel demands for gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel all rise, in order to make repairs throughout their refineries. It’s a time when there is naturally less demand for oil, so the industries go into maintenance mode. The amount of refining that gets done this time of year drops. That means the backup of oil due to oversupply to the refineries should become worse this month. It is during this time that I think oil prices could touch down into the high teens, causing more already-marginal companies to throw in the towel. Numerous small contractors in the oil business will find the toughening situation breaks them, and that means more failing bonds and more strained banks. Shale Boom, Shale Bust: The Myth of Saudi America In 2014, something went terribly wrong with this rosy scenario of “Saudi America.” An unexpected collapse in the price of oil is bankrupting the oil patch, destroying jobs and threatening plans for a renewable energy future. Iran marches on Iran is marching forward without a flinch in its plans to ramp up oil production and sales to 2,000,000 barrels per day. They now anticipate hitting that number in March if you combine their crude and condensate sales (fine liquid oil that condenses out of natural gas). That is sooner than they projected a month ago. While Saudi Arabia and Russia agreed not to expand production further, Iran now rightly points out that the talk of oil production cuts was always “a joke.” There was never a chance, as I also pointed out on this blog, that either the Saudis or the Russians were going to voluntarily cut production in the price war they are using to try to recover market share from rapidly expanding US producers. Their pact really says, “Oversupply will end when enough US companies go out of business.” With Iran promising to expand production this month (and already succeeding in doing so), and with oil refineries not being able to do much refining, the backup of crude could get large enough to quickly reach the point where there are no tanks left for storing oil or natural gas. That is the major inflection point at which everyone will be forced to slow production temporarily but only because they cannot sell oil at all. I expect that major backup to cause the next severe downward leg in oil prices. Stocks have been marching in lockstep, so they are likely to also plummet with the greater drop in the price of oil, causing the next leg in the crash of the stock market. As I’ve said all along, that crash will unfold in numerous downward legs, separated by smaller rallies, over the course of a year to a year-and-a-half. Revelers during the Ides of March will be stunned While many are blowing their party whistles on the oil-price-stabilization bandwagon, I do have some company in my dire predictions for a short-term oil price crash. Deloitte said in a report a week ago that 75% of oil exploration companies could default on their debt, ending in bankruptcy, where they either restructure their debts or, in the worst cases, go out of business. Another person who sees the coming storm as I do is John Kilduff, founding partner of Again Capital, which specializes in energy trading: We’re in the red zone, and we’re about to go over the goal line here for that actual pain point…. The rich are going to get richer, but companies like Chesapeake, unfortunately I think, is among the road kill, Goodrich Petroleum…. We are definitely going to see [$18/barrel oil]…. Now you’re seeing refineries go into maintenance…. Oil is going to back up big time in the system here. (Nightly Business Report) As I’ve said, the increased backup of oil will be caused by the perfect storm coming in on the convergence of three different fronts: 1) the agreement by Russia and Saudi Arabia to maintain full-tilt production converging with 2) the post-sanction arrival of Iran back into the marketplace just as 3) the oil industry goes into maintenance mode and so needs even less oil, not more. Kilduff says he thinks BP is another company that is going to wind up deep enough in distress that it will be bought up by some other massive conglomerate. Kilduff also predicts Chesapeake — a major oil producer and the second largest natural gas producer in the US — will go under. Chesapeake lost more than $14 billion last year on the downturn. It says it will sell off many of its assets this year to pay down its debts. So, the major fire sales are also beginning. According to Kilduff, we are, just this month, reaching that ultimate pain point. A desert storm is gathering over the oil fields.

Who Is The Real Ted Cruz?

Roger Stone 10:53 AM 01/26/2016

Vladimir Lenin said, “There are no morals in politics; there is only expedience. A scoundrel may be of use to us just because he is a scoundrel.” I can’t think of a better description of Ted Cruz’s relationship with the DC-Wall Street Establishment – Cruz being the scoundrel of course. Cruz’s claim of not being a tool of the political elite is like Bill Clinton telling the world, “I did not have sexual relations with that woman.” Webster’s definition of a scoundrel is a dishonest or unscrupulous person, and Cruz has become quite adroit at saying one thing while his history shows him doing the other. Rather than the outsider he claims to be, Ted Cruz is the ultimate insider, former top Bush 41 policy aide and globalist, Ivy Leaguer, and establishment insider. Not many conservatives coming out of Princeton and Harvard. “I’m just sayin,'” Ted, as said in the debate. There is no better example of this than Calgary Ted’s actions surrounding the big Wall Street banks and their secret funding of his political ascension. Cruz has been gorging at the table of the ultimate insider of all insiders – Goldman Sachs and Citibank . You may recall in a recent Fox Business Network debate that Cruz, in Mr. Haney from Green Acres voice, declared to one of the moderators, “The opening question [moderator Jerry Seib] asked — would you bailout the big banks again — nobody gave you an answer to that. I will give you an answer — absolutely not.” What else would you expect a scoundrel to say who had secretly secured big sweetheart loans from Goldman and Citibank — by leveraging his retirement accounts –– to fund his 2012 U.S. Senate campaign. Loans which the Calgary Ted conveniently forgot to disclose to the Federal Election Commission. These are the very retirement accounts that he said he and his wife said he cashed in to fund his senate race. In other words, Ted lied. At the same time Ted’s bulging 2016 campaign accounts and supporting Super-PACs are stuffed with big oil and gas money. He knows how to play the game. And perhaps the ultimate hypocrisy of the native born Canadian is that his spouse, Heidi, by all accounts a lovely wife and mother, has been employed by Goldman Sachs since 2005. She is on leave as managing director and regional head of private wealth management. Heidi is a proud member of the lefty Council on Foreign Relations, advocates of one world government and the New World Order. Heidi is not a bit player in the Cruz campaign with those credentials but rather an integral part of the campaign’s fundraising efforts. As reported by CNN last year, “She works the phones the way she worked them when she was at Goldman,” said Chad Sweet, the Cruz campaign’s chairman, who recruited Heidi to work at the giant investment bank.” Yet we are to believe that the big Wall Street banks have no leverage over Ted Cruz? Why didn’t Heidi Cruz resign from Goldman Sachs instead of taking a leave of absence? That’s like saying Bill Ayers and Saul Alinsky have had no influence on Barack Obama. The other inside connection that hits one like a baseball bat is the Bush connection. Ted was George W.’s brain when he ran for President. A top policy adviser. Ted maneuvered for Solicitor General in Bush World but settled for a plum at the Federal Trade Commission. Ted’s a Bushman with deep ties to the political and financial establishment. Ted and Heidi brag about being the first “Bush marriage” – they met as Bush staffers which ultimately led to marriage. Cruz was an adviser on legal affairs while Heidi was an adviser on economic policy and eventually director for the Western Hemisphere on the National Security Council under Condoleezza Rice. Condi helped give us the phony war in Iraq. Also conveniently missing from Heidi’s Wikipedia bio is her service as Deputy U.S. Trade Representative to USTR head Robert Zoellick. At USTR Heidi worked on U.S.-China trade policy- the one Donald Trump talks about so much. And Chad Sweet, Ted Cruz’s campaign chairman, is a former CIA officer. Michael Chertoff, George W. Bush’s former Secretary of Homeland Security, hired Sweet from Goldman Sachs to restructure and optimize the flow of information between the CIA, FBI and other members of the national security community and DHS. Chertoff and Sweet co-founded the Chertoff Group upon leaving the administration. A known tactic of the intelligence community is the use of strategic communications as a “soft power” weapon against it adversaries — the creation of false narratives by the effective use of all media — social, digital, newspaper, print, etc. Combined with denial and deception, it can be a potent force. Glenn Beck and Mark Levin are abetting this. Despite his ability to lie with a straight face (sadly Nixonian) on his support for amnesty and TPP, he got nailed by Senator Marco Rubio on the debate. Acting like a prick in the U.S. Senate was the core of Ted’s disciplined effort to bury his old school ties and reinvent himself as a modern-day Jesse Helms and supposed Conservative outsider. It’s a ruse. As we get closer to the Iowa Caucus and New Hampshire Primary, Cruz and his establishment puppet masters are engaged in an aggressive strategy against Trump. The false narrative of course being that Cruz is the outsider while Trump is the insider. Nothing could be farther from the truth. In its most simplistic terms – the power elite have no leverage over Trump – nothing. Cruz, on the other hand, is the establishments quisling, spawned by the Bushes and controlled by Wall Street, who became a strident “outsider” only four years ago. The U.S. Constitution does not defined “native born” citizen, nor have the courts. That Ted was eligible to run for office as a citizen only 15 months ago is weird. Trump’s right the Democrats would have a field day with Calgary Ted, the Manchurian, Canadian Candidate. Don’t get me wrong. Ted Cruz is a smart, canny, talented guy who has run a great “long race” campaign. He aspires to be Reagan but trust me he’s Nixon. Right down the incredible discipline and smarts playing the political game. Ted Cruz is not who he appears to be. As the bible says, “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.” In this case we must beware a Canadian bearing gifts.

Netanyahu turns down Obama meeting and cancels US trip

White House disputes reports that it could not find a suitable date for Israeli PM, in a sign of tensions between two leaders

Peter Beaumont in Jerusalem Tuesday 8 March 2016 04.14 EST

Israeli prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu turned down the offer of a meeting with president Barack Obama, prompting a sharp response from the White House, in the latest evidence of the tense relations between the two leaders. The abrupt decision by Netanyahu to cancel a visit to Washington later this month surprised US officials, who said they learned of the cancellation via the media. The White House additionally disputed reports in the Israeli media that said Netanyahu cancelled the trip after the White House had been unable to find a date for a meeting that worked with Obama’s schedule, saying those suggestions were “false”. The latest friction between Netanyahu and Obama – who have had a tense relationship, not least over the issue of Iran – came ahead of a visit by vice-president Joe Biden to Israel, when the issue of US military aid to the country is expected to be on the agenda. Netanyahu had been expected to visit the US in March on a trip coinciding with a major pro-Israeli group’s annual summit. etc. and the news story continues.

Supreme Court Blocks Louisiana Law Closing Abortion Clinics, Two Abortion Centers Reopen

State Steven Ertelt Mar 4, 2016 | 6:23PM Washington, DC

The Supreme Court has overturned an appeals court order allowing a pro-life law to go into effect in Louisiana that has already closed abortion clinics unable to provide for women’s health. Earlier this month, a federal appeals court overturned a block a federal judge put in place to stop a new law from taking effect that may close three of the four abortion clinics operating in the Bayou State. Now, the Supreme Court has versed that ruling. As ABC News reports: The justices effectively reversed an order by the federal appeals court in New Orleans that allowed Louisiana to begin enforcing its 2014 clinic regulation law even as it is being challenged in the courts. The law requires doctors who provide abortions to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals. Two clinics, in Boisier City and Baton Rouge, that had already closed in response to the appellate ruling will reopen and a third clinic in Shreveport that faced imminent closure will remain open, said the Center for Reproductive Rights, which is representing the clinics. The high court’s order, with only Justice Clarence Thomas noting his dissent, came two days after the justices heard arguments in a major abortion case from Texas and just hours after they voted in a private meeting on the outcome of that case. Earlier this month, a Louisiana judge sided with abortion advocates and ruled against a state law that would ensure abortion clinics are meeting basic health and safety requirements. Baton Rouge District Judge John deGravelles blocked the law from taking effect and declared it “unconstitutional” in a Tuesday ruling. The pro-life law would protect women by ensuring that abortionists have admitting privileges at a local hospital, that informed consent protections apply to all abortions, and that facilities that perform more than five abortions maintain proper licensing. Attorneys for the state immediately asked Judge John deGravelles to stay the order while they appeal it and his Jan. 26 finding that the law is unconstitutional. Today, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit today granted an extraordinary emergency stay of the federal court decision. The Center for Reproductive Rights and the Louisiana abortion centers behind the lawsuit indicated they would appeal to the Supreme Court. DeGravelles said in January that of six abortion doctors performing abortions in Louisiana, only two meet the requirement, and one of them has said he would quit if the law is enforced. The pro-life law would protect women by ensuring that abortionists have admitting privileges at a local hospital, that informed consent protections apply to all abortions, and that facilities that perform more than five abortions maintain proper licensing. Attorneys for Louisiana were confident the appeals court would overturn the judge’s ruling for two reasons. They said the judge’s analysis of the number of women likely to be affected used a procedure very different from the one used by the same court when it upheld a similar law in Texas. The 5th Circuit’s procedure would have indicated that the law is constitutional because more than 90 percent of all women of reproductive age are within 150 miles of an abortion clinic, the attorneys’ motion said. They also took issue with deGravelles’ ruling that a third doctor’s privileges do not meet the law’s requirements even though Kathy Kleibert, who was then health secretary, testified that she would accept them. Louisiana Right to Life Executive Director Ben Clapper previously told LifeNews: “Not surprisingly, the abortion industry has filed suit to stop the common-sense standards put in place by HB 388. We believe it is the right of the state of Louisiana to close loopholes that allow abortion facilities to operate at a lower standard as compared to other surgical facilities.” Clapper said that although the facilities and doctors are claiming they have not had enough time to get admitting privileges, the amount of time they had was similar to the amount of time involved in the implementation of a similar law in Texas. The law is responsible for closing abortion clinics that could not guarantee they could protect the health of Texas women. It has been credited with saving the lives of more than 10,000 unborn children.

Iran's secret Christian movement grows, with help from abroad

Published March 07, 2016 FoxNews.com Facebook Twitter livefyre Email

The number of Muslim converts who are risking prison or death by secretly worshipping as Christians in Iran’s house church movement has grown to as many as 1 million people, according to watchdog groups. The London-based Pars Theological Center is training at least 200 Iranian Christians to become the next generation of Iran's church leaders, the Christian Post reported. The persecution of Christians has persisted in Iran since the 1979 rise of the country’s theocratic Shiite Muslim government -- with Christians facing the threat of death, lashing and torture. About 100 Christians currently remain imprisoned under Iranian President Hassan Rouhani's rule. In 2010, Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said the country's underground house churches “threaten the Islamic faith and deceive young Muslims.” Despite the crackdown, there is now a growing movement of Christians in the Islamic Republic. Groups like Open Doors USA estimate around 450,000 practicing Christians in the country, while other estimates record more than 1 million Christians in Iran.

U.S. strikes al Shabaab training camp in Somalia, more than 150 killed

Mar 8, 2016 - 00:49 By Phil Stewart

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States launched an air strike in Somalia that killed more than 150 fighters with the al Qaeda-linked Islamist group al Shabaab following U.S. intelligence on preparations for a large-scale militant attack, the Pentagon said on Monday. The Saturday strike, using both manned aircraft and unmanned MQ-9 Reaper drones, targeted al Shabaab's "Raso" training camp, a facility about 120 miles north of the capital Mogadishu, the Pentagon said. The U.S. military had been monitoring the camp for several weeks before the strike and had gathered intelligence, including about an imminent threat posed by those in the camp to U.S. forces and African Union peacekeepers, officials said. U.S. Air Force Secretary Deborah Lee James described the strike as "defensive" in nature. "There was intelligence ... these fighters would soon be embarking upon missions that would directly impact the U.S. and our partners," James told reporters. etc. and the news story continues.

North Korea to Use Specialized EMP Weapons Against the United States

TWICE IN 6 HOURS I RECEIVED TIPS FROM HIGHLY RELIABLE INSIDER SOURCES WHICH STATE THAT OUR MILITARY IS OPERATING UNDER THE ASSUMPTION THAT CHINA HAS ENABLED NORTH KOREA WITH MODIFIED EMP WEAPONS FOR USE AGAINST LOCALIZED AND REGIONAL TARGETS WITHIN THE LOWER 48 STATES SHOULD HOSTILITIES COMMENCE IN KOREA.

China builds EMP weapons AND THEN SUPPLIES THESE WEAPONS TO THE NORTH KOREANS FOR USE AGAINST THE UNITED STATES

In 1962, President John F. Kennedy issued a threat to the Soviet Union that any attack by Cuba upon the United States would be considered to be an attack by the Soviet Union upon the United States. Today, President Obama needs to issue a similar warning to the Russians and the Chinese. In the spirit of John Kennedy, Obama should state, today, on national television that “Any EMP attack upon the United States by North Korea will be considered to be an attack upon the United States by Russia and China.” Unfortunately, Obama is playing for the other side. The Navy Has Prepped for An EMP Attack for 7 Years Since Obama has been President, the Navy has been involved in an unprecedented 7 year war game. In actuality, this move, by the Navy Department is designed to keep as many ships out to sea because they fear being victimized by an EMP attack. What has the Navy known about Obama that the rest of us should know? An unheard of seven year war game that encompasses every US coastline. The potential for an EMP attack upon the United States has been anticipated for sometime. The Chain of Custody for An EMP Attack Upon the United States Putin has forged a deep alliance with China through the virtual merging of the energy resources of both countries. China controls the puppet state of North Korea. When Hu says “jump” Kim Jong-un says “How High President Hu?” And make no mistake about it, an attack upon Russia is now an attack upon China and North Korea sits at the ready to do the bidding of its puppet masters. Attacking America at Its Weakest Point The Navy has prepared for an outdated mode of EMP attack. Traditionally, most experts agree that the most effective delivery method for a nation-wide EMP, or HEMP attack would be the Club-K Container Missile System. Sophisticated computer hackers, like the ones from North Korea, now have the ability to generate such an effect on our power grid by simultaneously hacking into our power grid and, in effect, generating a localized EMP attack. The effect would be almost as devastating in terms of the effects of such an attack on local utilities, especially for the providers of our power and water entities. Some insider sources have concluded that there is a significant danger to America from North Korean hackers far beyond the disruption of our movies and corporate accounts that they have hacked. I have learned that sophisticated computer hackers, like the ones from North Korea, have the ability to generate an EMP effect on our power grid by simultaneously hacking into our power grid and, in effect, generating a localized EMP attack. The effect would be almost as devastating in terms of the effects of such an attack on local utilities, especially for the providers of our power and water entities. Many think it is a good thing that the Navy has prepared for an EMP attack, However, they have prepared for the wrong kind of EMP attack . Where would the Koreans have learned to tap into US power grid and generate a limited EMP attack? His name is Barack Obama. High Treason In the White House Obama has already shown the Russians and the Chinese how to take down our grid. As as part of the November 2013 Grid EX II drill, which simulated an EMP attack upon the United States, Russia and China, are most formidable enemies, were invited to attend. Who would sanction such lunacy in which we showed them how to take down our grid? And then I remembered the ubiquitous actions of our current President towards the American people. In other words, Obama gave the Russians and the Chinese the knowledge on how to effect a grid take down. Of course, who could forget when outgoing DHS director, Janet Napolitano, stated in her August 2013 farewell address that it is not a matter of if but when such an attack will occur. There is virtually no defense. It is not likely that the Koreans will take down the entire grid because of the vested Chinese interests here. But it will be enough to cause us to lose World War III and throw our lives in total chaos. More to come as more become available.

Russia warns North Korea over threats of nuclear strike

One of Pyongyang’s few remaining allies says country is in danger of creating legal grounds for international military intervention. NK News reports

Chad O'Carroll for NK News, part of the North Korea network Tuesday 8 March 2016 09.34 EST

Russia has warned North Korea that threats to deliver “preventive nuclear strikes” could create a legal basis for the use of military force against the country, suggesting that even Pyongyang’s few remaining friends are growing concerned about its increasingly confrontational stance. The Russian foreign ministry statement, which follows a North Korean threat to “annihilate” the US and South Korea, also criticises Washington and Seoul for launching the largest joint military drills yet to be held on the peninsula. “We consider it to be absolutely impermissible to make public statements containing threats to deliver some ‘preventive nuclear strikes’ against opponents,” the Russian foreign ministry said in response to North Korea’s threats. “Pyongyang should be aware of the fact that in this way the DPRK will become fully opposed to the international community and will create international legal grounds for using military force against itself in accordance with the right of a state to self-defense enshrined in the United Nations Charter,” continued the statement, translated by Itar Tass news agency. Washington and Seoul launched their annual joint military exercises on the peninsula on Monday, stepping up the manoeuvres in response to North Korea’s fourth nuclear test in January and rocket launch in February. But while the statement said Moscow was opposed to the tone of North Korea’s response, it also said the scale of the American-South Korean joint exercise put “unprecedented … military and political pressure on Pyongyang”. “Naturally, as a state, which is directly named as an object of this kind of military activities, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) cannot but feel reasonably concerned for its security,” the statement said. Pyongyang had said the drills, which are set to run to the end of April, are rehearsals for invading. Russia has historically had close relations with North Korea, making its warning that the country may be laying itself open to military action particularly notable. But one observer said Moscow’s response could be expected, given the tone of North Korea’s recent public statements. “Pyongyang should be learning that the types of threats they continue to make will have consequences,” said Daniel Pinkston, a Seoul-based North Korea researcher at Troy University. “The security dilemma dynamics that the behaviour and rhetoric set in motion are making Son’gun Korea less secure, not more secure,” he said. “This is the flaw in their national security strategy, and it will continue to be exposed in the future.” Another North Korea watcher said the statement might be better viewed as a warning to Pyongyang of what others might do, rather than Russian actions in particular. “Russia is pointing out to North Korea that its inflammatory rhetoric risks giving its opponents – primarily South Korea and the US – just cause to pursue military action against it,” said regional expert Christopher Green. Inter-Korean relations have worsened significantly in recent weeks, with Pyongyang showing particular sensitivity to the UN sanctions agreed last week.

Chinese Hackers Break Into NY Fed, Steal $100 Million From Bangladesh Central Bank

Submitted by Tyler Durden on 03/07/2016 17:15 -0500

Reports indicate that some of the stolen funds were traced to the Philippines, but given what we know about the "Cyber Axis of Evil," we can only suspect it was Iranians, Chinese, or the criminal/military mastermind Kim Jong-Un who was behind the scam, but whatever the case, someone, somewhere, hacked into Bangladesh's central bank on February 5. According to Reuters, "some of the funds" have been recovered, but the bank didn't initially say how much or how much was initially stolen. We suppose that theoretically it could have been a rather large sum, as the country has around $26 billion in FX reserves on hand: But just moments ago we learned from the AFP that the amount lost was around $100 million. "Some of the money was then illegally transferred online to the Philippines and Sri Lanka, a central bank official told AFP on condition of anonymity." "The bank reported that the USD 100 million was leaked into the Philippine banking system, sold to a black market foreign exchange broker and then transferred to at least three local casinos," AFP continues, adding that "the amount was later sold back to the money broker and moved out to overseas accounts within days." And here's the punchline: According to AFP, Chinese hackers have been blamed and the money was stolen from accounts held at the New York Fed... This afternoon, the Fed was out with the official denial, saying only this to Reuters: “To date, there is no evidence of any attempt to penetrate Federal Reserve systems in connection with the payments in question, and there is no evidence that any Fed systems were compromised.” Was Dudley penetrated then, or not? We'll have to wait on the official investigation.

Kick Turkey Out of NATO

Submitted by George Washington on 03/07/2016 16:10

There’s a Petition at Change.org to suspend Turkey’s membership in NATO.

Why kick Turkey out of NATO? Because: Turkey just shut down the largest Turkish newspaper using tear gas, water canons and brutality: Turkey has destroyed free speech and freedom of the press. And see this Turkey imprisons more journalists than any other country in the world Journalists – such as Dutch reporter Frederike Geerdink or Vice News’ Mohammed Rasool – are regularly detained on spurious charges Anyone who criticizes Turkey’s president is arrested Twitter reports that the Turkish government made more content removal requests than any other in the worldbefore completely blocking Twitter and Youtube After reporters, local police and Turkish generals caught a weapons shipment from Turkey into Syria, they were all arrested on “treason” charges for exposing the shipment Turkey’s president says he doesn’t have to follow the rulings of Turkey’s top court Turkey is one of the main supporters of ISIS and Al Nusra Turkey provided the chemical weapons used in the famous attacks which killed hundreds in Syria. Pulitzer-prize winning investigative reporter Seymour Hersh – who uncovered the Iraq prison torture scandal and the Mai Lai massacre in Vietnam – previously reported that high-level American sources tell him that the Turkish government carried out the chemical weapons attacks blamed on the Syrian government Unless reined in, Turkey may well get us into WW3 with Russia Why are we allowing such an antidemocratic, tin pot dictatorship to stay in NATO?

Why Did the Senate Ag Committee Just Vote to Take Away our Food Rights?!

Keeping us in the ‘Dark’ About GMOs in Our Food

by Christina Sarich Posted on March 7, 2016

How did the U.S. Senate Committee on Agriculture vote this past Tuesday in the hearing for the DARK Act, (Deny Americans the Right to Know) strangely officially called the Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act (HR 1599)? You need to know before if goes to a full Senate floor vote! The DARK Act cleared the committee in a 14 to 6 vote. This bill was promoted by Representative Mike Pompeo, a supporter of biotech giants like Monsanto, and would pre-empt states from having their own laws on GMO labeling. This includes states such as Vermont which have already acted on GMO labeling. Vermont has a GM labeling law going into effect just months from now. America needs to contact those that voted Nay and thank those Senators. Ask these representatives to listen to the people, and stand strong against the DARK Act. For those that voted Yea, consider contacting to let them know how you feel about their betrayal of Americans’ right to know what is in their food. States’ rights need to be protected. We all deserve to know if we are eating foods full of genetically modified ingredients! It would also allow GMOs to be labeled ‘natural’ so lawsuits which hold large companies liable for lying to consumers about what is in their food (ie., Kellogg’s recent Kashi fiasco) would become a thing of the past. Big Food is basically saying this: ‘we’ll tell you what’s safe, and we’ll call something natural even if it’s made in a lab, and you’ll shut up and eat it.’ We need to stop the DARK Act dead in its tracks. You can thank these 6 Senators that voted against the DARK Act during the Senate Ag Committee hearing: Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI): (202) 224-4822

NM ranchers outraged by lack of security at border

By Lauren Villagran / Journal Staff Writer - Las Cruces Bureau Monday, March 7th, 2016 at 12:05am

The story goes like this: A ranch hand working in New Mexico’s Bootheel stumbles upon men and two or three vehicles stranded in remote cattle country. They turn out to be drug runners from Mexico who take him hostage, load his vehicle with narcotics and force him to drive to Willcox, Ariz., where they leave him alive but warn him not to go to the police. They would be watching. That alleged incident and a host of recent break-ins have ranchers across Hidalgo County and in southeastern Arizona outraged about what they say is a decline in border security. The cattle growers associations of both states are hosting a meeting this week in the tiny town of Animas to air their grievances to elected officials – including pleas for more boots on the ground – and they expect to draw a crowd. The Bootheel’s rugged terrain of ridges and arroyos, sparse roads and sprawling desert has historically presented challenges for law enforcement charged with keeping the region safe, particularly from illegal traffic coming from Mexico. It’s a corridor favored by traffickers moving dope north to the drug-hungry U.S. market. The ranch hand was working for Elbrock Water Systems on the Gray Ranch on Dec. 7 when he was allegedly hijacked by drug runners, according to Tricia Elbrock, who co-owns the Animas-based company that provides well and septic services from Tucson to El Paso. The Elbrocks, their employees and law enforcement searched for him all night before he called from Willcox before noon the next day, she said. “They kidnapped him, tied him up, threw all our tools out and fittings and loaded our company vehicle with all the drugs,” Elbrock said. “They waited till dark to leave the ranch. They needed him to help guide them through to the highway.” On the phone, Elbrock gasped back a sob as she said: “This is still pretty raw. We got him back safe. They did rough him up, but we got him back. It’s a mess. I don’t know what to tell you. We have got to have help down here.” The FBI confirmed that it is investigating the alleged kidnapping, referred to the bureau by Border Patrol. FBI spokesman Frank Fisher in Albuquerque said no arrests have been made but declined to comment further, citing the pending investigation. The day their employee returned to Animas, Elbrock said, she, her husband, Edward, and the employee were questioned by State Police, Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the FBI. “The folks down there have never gotten any relief from illegal crossings,” said Caren Cowan, executive director of the Albuquerque-based New Mexico Cattle Growers’ Association. “And things have ramped up. These people are desperate. They are absolutely desperate. We have had countless meetings with government agencies over the years, and I say this with all due respect, all we hear about is what they are trying to do and nothing gets done.” “The main reason for this meeting is this incident,” said Meira Gault, whose 20,000-acre ranch lies just north of the U.S.-Mexico border in Hidalgo County. “People feel they aren’t protected. Everyone is scared.” Border Patrol reported apprehending 11,000 unauthorized border crossers in fiscal 2015 and seizing more than 15,000 pounds of marijuana. A spokesman said the agency could not break down apprehensions or drug seizures in the Bootheel specifically. The Border Patrol’s Lordsburg station has been understaffed in recent months, down about 50 agents in a location that is budgeted for 284 agents. But there are agents in the pipeline. A spokesman said the agency has candidates at its training academy that will be assigned to the Bootheel. Organizers say they have invited elected officials to the meeting. Republican U.S. Rep. Steve Pearce, whose southern New Mexico district includes Hidalgo County, is scheduled to be there, according to a spokeswoman. “The vandalism and the trespass issues have increased,” said Erica Valdez, who ranches more than 40,000 acres between Animas and Lordsburg, about 35 miles north of the border. The same night of the reported kidnapping, Border Patrol tracked and apprehended two alleged drug runners after a 3 a.m. pursuit in the Animas Valley that involved eight agents working in vehicles, manning a night-vision camera, trekking on foot and riding ATVs, according to a criminal complaint against the two Mexican nationals charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute. The bed of their vehicle was allegedly loaded with 2,774 pounds of pot. The complaint filed by the U.S. attorney in New Mexico makes no mention of a kidnapping. But it does say that just before that pursuit took place, a different “suspicious vehicle” with its rear lights extinguished “possibly went off road to avoid detection” in the same area. “The border is not secure,” Valdez said. “It doesn’t matter how tall of a wall you put up, they are going to tunnel under it, they are going to torch through it. If they want to come across, they will. The only way they are going to stop it is with boots on the ground at the border. We would like to see more agents.”

Abortion Showdown in Texas

In 1973, Roe v Wade paved the way for more than 50 million legal abortions. But do you know what happened in 1992? In Planned Parenthood v Casey, the Supreme Court held that "the State may enact regulations to further the health or safety of a woman seeking an abortion, but may not impose unnecessary health regulations that present a substantial obstacle to a woman seeking an abortion." In the wake of Casey, many states have passed laws which restrict abortion and protect women's health. The pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute says that 15 years ago, only 13 states had four or five restrictions on the books, compared to today with 27 states. And many have been passed in just the last few years. These legal restrictions - along with other factors, like the use of ultrasoundhave saved babies' lives. According to The Atlantic, "Since 1990, the rate of abortions has fallen by more than a third, and the raw number of abortions has fallen by more than half." And that doesn't sit well with pro-abortion forces, especially those who profit from the gruesome practice. In 2013, a common-sense Texas law requiring abortion clinics to maintain hospital admitting privileges and to meet the same health and safety standards as other facilities performing outpatient surgery was challenged. This latest abortion case is called Whole Womans Health v Hellerstedt. Oral arguments were presented before the high court last week, with a decision expected in June. It's the biggest abortion case in a quarter-century. With the recent, untimely death of the conservative, pro-life Antonin Scalia, the court is split now between four liberal justices, three conservatives, and swing vote, Anthony Kennedy. The plaintiffs, who claim to be about protecting "women's health," and who insist abortion is an essential medical practice, are now in the awkward position of saying that abortion clinics shouldn't be subject to the same oversight as other medical clinics. They claim the law adds rules that are "medically unnecessary" to abortion, but still medically necessary to all other medical practices. Since the law went into effect, the number of Texas abortion mills has been cut in half, with another ten expected to close if the law is fully implemented. Roger Severino, director of Heritage Foundation's DeVos Center for Religion and Civil Society, says "this case is about the ability of Texas to increase the health and safety standards at abortion clinics. The abortion industry should not get a special exemption, and Texas is well within its rights to act." We need only remember Kermit Gosnells grisly house of horrors in Philadelphia. No regulation or oversight there meant that for 30 years his clinic received less oversight than the local ice cream parlor. And mothers, not to mention unborn and born children, died because of it. There are multiple scenarios that could play out with the Whole Woman's Health v Hellerstedt case. The U. S. Court of Appeals, Fifth Circuit, has already upheld the law, so the only way for similar laws in all 50 states to be struck down is for today's eight-member court to vote 5-3 to overturn all or part of it. A 5-3 vote the other way, of course, would validate such laws across the nation. A 4-4 split would uphold the law, but only for Texas, Mississippi, and Louisiana. Or the justices could send the case back to the court of appeals, seeking more evidence of a link between the law and clinic closures. Finally, they could hold the case until next term when a ninth justice is seated. There are lot of options! So please right now, pray for the right decision in the case of Whole Woman's Health v Hellerstedt. Because, as we know, Jesus loves all the children, and the women, of the world.

NHS to ‘support’ women to carry babies to term for organ donation

(TRUNEWS) Pregnant women may soon be forced to make a difficult decision – to abort their babies or giving up their organs after birth. National Health Service (NHS), the publically funded healthcare system in the U.K. is proposing that women be “supported” to carry the child to term for the sole purpose of harvesting the baby’s organs. There is currently a shortage of donated organs, according to The Express. The mother could choose not to have their child’s organs removed by choosing abortion instead if tests during pregnancy determined the baby may have a birth defect. In some cases, if the mother has agreed to donation, a “brain dead” baby could be kept alive so their organs are “fresh” when doctors remove them. The idea was unveiled at a medical conference at the British Transplantation Society in Glasgow, according to the Daily Mirror. An NHS representative talked to Mail Online and promised women would not be pressured. A committee has been set up by NHS Blood and Transplant to promote more organ donation from newborns and babies. Doctors wish to harvest the organs of about 100 babies a year, up from 11 in the past two years. There is a market for baby body parts. Last year in the U.S. it was revealed through a series of undercover videos that Planned Parenthood sold the organs from aborted children to researchers

March 9th | Look up! | Behold your heavenly wedding band

The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.3 There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.4 Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun,5 Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.

Psalm 19 1-5 King James Version

25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; 26 Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh. Luke 21:25-28 Tomorrow, we will witness unique astronomical closure events of the Hebrew year with great prophetic significance. As Daniel Valles from Informedchristians.com has very eloquently presented in this video, we are approaching a unique eclipse marker on March 9th and subsequent turn of the Jewish year cycle on March 10th. Strikingly, the coming eclipse is only visible in and near Indonesia. About 10,000 foreign visitors and 100,000 Indonesian tourists are expected to view the spectacle, and special religiously inspired events have been organized across the country, from a festival featuring live bands to dragon boat races. “This is a very special year because we have this phenomenon – a tourism attraction created by God,” I Gde Pitana, the government’s head of foreign tourism, said.. Scientists are also flocking to Indonesia including a four-member team from Nasa. Location matters Those who are familiar with the writings of my beloved friend and colleague Sue Bradley (deceased), understand this location holds great prophetic significance regarding the coming of the Antichrist, rise of the beast system and the roots of and spiritual synchronicities with president Obama. I would particularly like to draw your attention to page 54-57 for focus and efficiency purposes. Anak Krakatau. The Father, The Son and The Tongues of Fire. Page 27 and onward of the subsequent essay Sue Bradley and I co-wrote, deepens the correlation between Indonesia, Obama and specific end time events. Shepherds and Staves, Beauty and Bands. Zechariah 11. Thus, within the context of the occurrence of first blood moon quintet in history on the Lord’s holy feast days*, the Barley harvest (a type of first fruits) will be checked in Israel for its readiness (called Aviv in Hebrew), exactly on the day of a total solar eclipse. Aviv indicates a stage in the development of the barley crops. This is clear from Ex 9:31-32 which describes the devastation caused by the plague of hail: “And the flax and the barley were smitten, because the barley was Aviv and the flax was Giv’ol. And the wheat and the spelt were not smitten because they were dark (Afilot).” The above passage relates that the barley crops were destroyed by the hail while the wheat and spelt were not damaged. To understand the reason for this we must look at how grain develops. When grains are early in their development they are flexible and have a dark green color. As they become ripe they take on a light yellowish hue and become more brittle. The reason that the barley was destroyed and the wheat was not is that the barley had reached the stage in its development called Aviv and as a result had become brittle enough to be damaged by the hail. In contrast, the wheat and spelt crops were still early enough in their development, at a stage when they were flexible and not susceptible to being damaged by hail. The description of the wheat and spelt as “dark” (Afilot) indicates that they are still in the stage when they were deep green and had not yet begun to lighten into the light yellowish hue which characterizes ripe grains. A type of lacking spiritual responsiveness (oil) and lacking light (untrimmed lamps). In contrast, the barley had reached the stage of Aviv at which time it was no longer “dark” and at this point it probably had begun to develop golden streaks, or ‘ears to hear’. It has to be brittle enough to be destroyed by hail and has begun to lighten in color (it is not “dark”). The seeds have produced enough dry material so it can be eaten parched. It has developed enough so that it will be harvest-ready 2-3 weeks later.” As the Barley is checked if it is ‘in the ear’, the Lord is once again calling his bride to examine herself based on His instructions and prompting, to ready herself thus to become ever more attentive and responsive to his calling through His Word and Spirit and go out to meet His son for his coming is near. This video and written material by Informedchristians.com are prepared to assist us in examining and readying ourselves. Counterfeit As always, Satan will attempt to mimic, negatively project and/or override the Lord’s marvelous astronomical displays and Biblical wedding typology with lying signs and wonders, binding people’s hearts, minds and emotions ever tighter to mass media covered geopolitical spectacles, ‘wars and rumors of war’, ‘bread and circus’ events as well as counterfeit religious and scientism rituals like the Hindu wedding ritual Maha Shivaratri yesterday. While many are still under Satan’s age old and ever widening and deepening deepening deception, we who have ‘ears to hear and eyes to see’ understand all the counterfeit can ultimately do, is affirm and give glory to the original. Blessings!

Dangerous Flash Flooding, Along With Severe Thunderstorms, Tornadoes in the South (FORECAST)

Published: Mar 8 2016 12:30 PM EST By Quincy Vagell weather.com

Tornadoes, Heavy Winds Reported

Meteorologist Danielle Banks discusses the current severe weather in the midwest and where it will be moving next. The threat of torrential rain is kicking into high gear, and will persist in parts of the South for the next several days, where over a foot of rain may trigger dangerous, life-threatening flash flooding. (MORE: Your Vehicle Can Be Biggest Danger In Flash Flooding) Among the cities that should be alert for potentially major flash flooding the next few days are Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston, San Antonio, Austin, Shreveport, Louisiana and Little Rock, Arkansas, and New Orleans. The flooding already kicked in Monday night, flash flooding west of Ft. Worth, Texas, swamped homes and forced water rescues. (MORE: Latest Damage Reports | Interactive Storm Reports Map) If that wasn't enough, severe thunderstorms and at least some tornadoes, are expected through at least Wednesday in some of the same parts of the southern Plains, Lower Mississippi Valley and Gulf Coast. An apparent tornado touched down near Tolar, Texas, southwest of Ft. Worth Tuesday morning. A squall line then surged through Ft. Worth packing a 66 mph gust at the Ft. Worth Meacham Airport and a gust to 72 mph at Interstate 820 and Blue Mound Road. Below is a breakdown of the flooding and severe weather threats the next several days followed by an explanation of what is causing the stormy weather. Flooding Threat The National Weather Service has issued flash flood watches parts of east and north Texas into southeast Oklahoma, most of Arkansas and western Lousiana. A "cutoff" low sits and spins over Mexico and Texas, keeping a stream of moisture pointed at the south-central states. Periods of rain and thunderstorms will take aim on parts of the southern Plains eastward to the Mississippi River Valley, northern Gulf Coast, Ohio Valley and Tennessee Valley. Persistent, slow-moving bands of rain and thunderstorms may ultimately drop a foot of rain or more in some of these areas, triggering dangerous, life-threatening, destructive flash flooding and river flooding. The area at highest risk includes parts of east and north Texas, southeast Oklahoma, Arkansas, western and northern Louisiana and southern Missouri. Potential cities: Dallas | Houston | Shreveport | Little Rock The flood threat may persist in parts of the Lower Mississippi Valley and Deep South into Friday. Flood Alerts Flood watches and warnings from the National Weather Service. Severe Weather Forecast Tuesday Scattered severe thunderstorms are anticipated in central and eastern Texas, much of Oklahoma, western Arkansas and western Louisiana through Tuesday into Tuesday night. Damaging winds, tornadoes, and large hail are possible. Tuesday's Thunderstorm Forecast The red shaded area shows where severe thunderstorms may develop. The orange area is where general thunderstorms are possible. Wednesday Severe thunderstorms may be less numerous than Tuesday, but still a potential particularly near the Texas and southwest Louisiana Gulf Coasts. These severe t-storms may occur in the morning, as well as the afternoon and evening. Damaging straight-line winds and tornadoes are still possible, both within bands of heavy rain and any discrete supercells.

Wednesday's Thunderstorm Forecast The red shaded area shows where severe thunderstorms may develop. The orange area is where general thunderstorms are possible. Slow-Moving Low Pressure = Flooding and Severe Weather A massive, slow-moving, southward dip in the jet stream will inch east across Mexico, then near the Gulf Coast, funneling deep, tropical moisture into parts of the South and Mississippi Valley, a rather unusual pattern for early March. In fact, atmospheric moisture values (known to meteorologists as "precipitable water") may near or top March records from the northern Gulf Coast into the Great Lakes, values last seen this time of year during the record-shattering March 2012 heat wave. These ingredients will come together for several bouts of thunderstorms and excessive rainfall from the Plains into the Mississippi Valley and surrounding areas over the next several days. (MORE: More Flooding in a Warming World) It appears that the upper level low will begin to finally pull away from the southern Plains this weekend, gradually lessening the threat for severe thunderstorms and flooding.

Preparing For The Worst Natural Disaster In History - How Everyone In America May Be Impacted When The Cascadia Subduction Zone Rips Apart - Full Cascadia Rising Exercise Scenario Document Here By Stefan Stanford - All News Pipeline - Live Free Or Die

With even a movie written about it, almost everyone has heard of the San Andreas fault in California though up until recently, the 700+ mile long Cascadia subduction zone further north had been the 'quake-maker we'd never heard of'. Sitting quietly without a massive quake for over 316 years since an earthquake on January 26th, 1700 caused a tsunami an ocean away in seaside villages in Japan and at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean where the North American plate meets the seabed, Cascadia went viral recently when we learned the 'really big one' could hit without a moments notice and when it did, tens of thousands of people would likely be killed with twice as many injured as an oceanwide path of destruction lays in its wake. We're well aware that the White House recently held a huge meeting to prepare for a future Cascadia quake and the Department of Defense is concerned enough about it that they will be participating in a massive drill later in June. Since we were also told that there is no way to predict when the next 'big one' will hit, we wanted to take a look at some of the reasons why nearly everybody in the country may be impacted by a Cascadia quake, even those on the East coast...a full continent away. The 182-page PDF from Oregon's government documenting the Cascadia Rising exercise (embedded in full below videos!) tells us that internet service nationwide might be disrupted by a Cascadia quake as undersea cables are ripped apart and we also learn that a complete failure of the electrical grid could trigger a chain reaction leading to failures in the electrical system not only along the West coast but in other locations throughout America as well. In such a catastrophic failure, some people could be forced to go without electricity for weeks or even months or more. On ANP, we've published many stories about what can happen when the electricity goes out for a lengthy period of time and whether via earthquake, EMP from the sun, cyber attack, attack upon the electrical grid or something else catastrophic, most Americans are completely dependent upon the grid and any long-term power outage can lead to the unthinkable. With banking systems and businesses now nearly completely dependent upon the internet and electricity to do business, any kind of outage that goes nationwide immediately impacts everybody who is still plugged into the matrix. We're also told here that the human response to a Cascadia subduction zone quake will be the largest response to any natural disaster in US history and as we see in the photograph below and learn in the linked story, the military and the DOD will be heavily involved in both the coordination and the response. From June 7th through June 10th, agencies from all across the government will be taking place in the massive Cascadia Rising drills. While a New Yorker magazine story from July of 2015 told us that if a Cascadia quake strikes, 'everything West of Interstate 5 will be toast', we also learned that Cascadia is now 'locked, loaded and ready to fire' but, unlike those living in small villages on Japan's coast back in 1700 on a dark winter night, those living in 2016 America may have some notice of impending doom....though not much. We also take a look below at several earthquake/tsunami simulations for a massive Cascadia quake as well as taking a look at what happened in 1700 when a Cascadia quake caused a tsunami in Japan as seen in the 1st video below. Showing us what happened the last time a massive quake struck that region, we see that a tsunami struck much of the land areas in the surrounding 'ring of fire' as a countless number were killed back then. Just think of the damage that would be caused now with millions more living on the planet and our infrastructure nearly completely dependent upon electricity As we're also told here, the big problem with the Cascadia subduction zone is the North American plate sits atop the Pacific plate and the Pacific plate will move up under the North American plate and in a sideways 'sheering' fashion as seen and explained in the photograph below. The scenarios which are outlined below photograph share several different viewpoints on a massive Cascadia quake scenario and none of them are good. What do scientists think will happen? A massive earthquake that would lay waste to thousands of homes and buildings, devastate the power grid and energy infrastructure, and even do things like causing the edge of the continent to drop by as much as 30 feet and liquefying solid ground. A mega-tsunami that would arrive onshore across the Northwestern coast within 15 minutes of the earthquake's strike, creating a "700-mile-long liquid wall" that would render the region "unrecognizable." The deaths of 13,000 people, or perhaps many more, as well as more than 1 million left homeless, and the need to provide food and water for more than 2 million for perhaps months to come. From Off The Grid News.: The state is “like an eight-and-a-half-month pregnancy, due any time now” for a major earthquake, Althea Rizzo, geology hazard coordinator for the Oregon Office of Emergency Management, said this month. From Gizmodo.: The Pacific Northwest is due for a continent-rending earthquake. Experts believe the odds of a Big One happening in the next half century are about one in three, the odds of a Very Big One roughly one in ten, and that, in either case, we are disastrously unprepared. From Michael Snyder at End of the American Dream.: Let us not forget that the Cascadia Subduction Zone sits directly along the Ring of Fire, and the Ring of Fire has started to become much more active in recent years. In addition, if the region starts to become more seismically active there is also a very real possibility that we could see a full-blown eruption of Mt. Rainier, which has been described as “the most dangerous mountain in America“. Let us hope that we have as much time as possible before our nation has to deal with such calamities, but the cold, hard truth is that we are certainly not helping matters by acting so wickedly. If we continue to do the same things that we have been doing, it is only a matter of time before the judgment of God comes to our land in a major way. We are killing millions of babies, harvesting their body parts and auctioning those body parts off to the highest bidder. To many Americans that may seem like “old news”, but I assure you that this is not “old news” to God.

At Secretive Meeting, Tech CEOs And Top Republicans Commiserate, Plot To Stop Trump

Karl Rove shared focus group findings that give hope to the GOP establishment

Huffington Post - March 8, 2016

Billionaires, tech CEOs and top members of the Republican establishment flew to a private island resort off the coast of Georgia this weekend for the American Enterprise Institute’s annual World Forum, according to sources familiar with the secretive gathering. The main topic at the closed-to-the-press confab? How to stop Republican front-runner Donald Trump. Apple CEO Tim Cook, Google co-founder Larry Page, Napster creator and Facebook investor Sean Parker, and Tesla Motors and SpaceX honcho Elon Musk all attended. So did Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), political guru Karl Rove, House Speaker Paul Ryan, GOP Sens. Tom Cotton (Ark.), Cory Gardner (Colo.), Tim Scott (S.C.), Rob Portman (Ohio) and Ben Sasse (Neb.), who recently made news by saying he “cannot support Donald Trump.” Along with Ryan, the House was represented by Energy and Commerce Committee Chair Fred Upton (Mich.), Rep. Kevin Brady (Texas) and almost-Speaker Kevin McCarthy (Calif.), sources said, along with leadership figure Cathy McMorris Rodgers (Wash.), Budget Committee Chairman Tom Price (R-Ga.), Financial Services Committee Chairman Jeb Hensarling (Texas) and Diane Black (Tenn.).

It’s déjà vu all over again: Romney-Ryan filed intention to run for presidency with FEC

Posted on March 8, 2016 by Dr. Eowyn | 15 Comments

Any person who intends or is considering running for the presidency of the United States of America must register with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) by filing an FEC Form 1. Created in 1974 by Congress as an amendment to the Federal Election Campaign Act, the FEC is an independent regulatory agency to regulate campaign finance legislation — “to disclose campaign finance information, to enforce the provisions of the law such as the limits and prohibitions on contributions, and to oversee the public funding of Presidential elections.” The FEC’s website discloses that one month and 8 days ago on January 31, 2016, Mitt Romney and House Speaker Paul Ryan — the GOP’s 2012 nominees for president and vice-president, respectively — had filed precisely FEC Form 1, indicating their intention, once again, to run for the presidency. Some of you may recall that in early January, there was news that Romney was weighing a White House run. As Politico reported, at a private meeting in New York on Jan. 8, 2016, Mitt Romney told a group of about 30 former donors that he is considering running for president, a major turnaround for because just a year ago he had categorically ruled out a 2016 run. According to one source, Romney said, “Everybody in here can go tell your friends that I’m considering a run.” At the time, Romney was prompted by his concerns about Jeb Bush’s candidacy. 23 days after his meeting with his longtime supporters, Romney filed Form 1 with the Federal Election Commission. Now that Bush has dropped out of the race, Romney switched his concerns to Donald Trump. A month after he had filed FEC Form 1, Romney and Ryan (joined by 2008 Republican presidential nominee Senator John McCain) publicly attacked Trump, calling him unfit for office and a danger for the nation and the Republican Party. (See “Why are they so afraid of Donald Trump?”) That’s all we need: yet another candidate to further divide and split the GOP field.

Iran fires missiles marked with ‘Israel must be wiped out’

Wednesday, 9 March 2016 | 29 Jamadil Awal 1437 AH

TEHRAN: Iran reportedly test-fired two ballistic missiles Wednesday with the phrase “Israel must be wiped out” written in Hebrew on them, a show of force by the Islamic Republic as US Vice President Joe Biden visited Israel. Such phrases have been emblazoned on missiles fired before by Iran, but this test comes as the country recently signed a nuclear deal with world powers, including America, and conducted another test the day before. Hard-liners in Iran’s military have fired rockets and missiles despite US objections since the deal, as well as shown underground missile bases on state television. There was no immediate reaction from Jerusalem, where Biden was scheduled to speak to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who strongly opposed the nuclear deal. The semiofficial Fars news agency offered pictures Wednesday it said were of the Qadr H missiles being fired. It said they were fired in Iran’s eastern Alborz mountain range to hit a target some 1,400 kilometers (870 miles) away off Iran’s coast into the Sea of Oman. The US Navy’s 5th Fleet, which patrols that region, declined to comment on the test. Fars quoted Amir Ali Hajizadeh, the head of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard’s aerospace division, saying the test was aimed at showing Israel that Iran could hit it. etc. and the news story continues.

Iran Defies US With Test Missiles

March 09, 2016 17:02 UTC

Iran said Tuesday it conducted ballistic missile tests to defy U.S. sanctions and to show its "deterrent power" and “ability to confront any threats.” The tests came two months after the United States imposed new sanctions against Iranians and companies with links to Iran’s missile program. Iranian state television reportedly showed a missile being fired from underground silo at night. The announcer said it was a medium-range Qiam-1 missile, according to Reuters. The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, or IRGC, is the security force under Iran’s supreme leader, Ali Khamenei. On its official website, it said Tuesday's test was "to show Iran's deterrent power and also the Islamic Republic's ability to confront any threat against the (Islamic) Revolution.” General Amir Ali Hajizadeh is the head of the IRGC’s space program. He said “the missile struck a target 700 kilometers away.” Last July, the U.S. and world powers reached an agreement with Iran on its nuclear activities. Iran agreed to remove most of its nuclear fuel and to avoid testing nuclear-capable missiles in exchange for the lifting of sanctions. After two Iranian missile tests last October, the U.S. announced new sanctions in January against Iranians and companies for helping Iran’s ballistic missile program. The U.S. said the tests violated a U.N. resolution. The resolution banned Iran from “any activity related to ballistic missiles designed to be capable of delivering nuclear weapons, including launches using such ballistic missile technology." Iran has always denied any link between its missile program and the disputed nuclear activity. I'm Mario Ritter.

Hamas Is Tunneling its Way Into Israel, Again

By Yardena Schwartz On 3/8/16 at 6:31 AM

Ofer Lieberman looks at the patch of earth that, on July 21, 2014, was the gaping mouth of a tunnel. On that day, 10 fighters from the Palestinian militant group Hamas traveled through the tunnel from the nearby Gaza Strip and emerged inside Israel dressed in Israeli army uniforms and equipped with guns and explosive belts. Four Israeli soldiers and all 10 Islamists were killed when the Israeli army confronted the militants. “It was horrible,” says Lieberman, the spokesman for the cooperative village Nir Am, which sits just over a mile from the fence that surrounds Gaza. The attack on Nir Am took place during that summer’s 50-day war between Israel and Palestinian militants in Gaza. Over the course of the war, 11 Israeli soldiers were killed in attacks by Palestinians emerging from tunnels that extended into Israeli territory. Israel discovered 32 such tunnels during the conflict. A cease-fire deal ended the war, but lulls in the conflict between militants in Gaza and Israel have not historically lasted long. And Hamas is once again tunneling under the fence that separates Gaza from Israel. Political analysts fear that the region could be edging once again toward war. etc. and the news story continues.

BREAKING NEWS - URGENT *** Russia Threatens to INVADE North Korea over nuclear threats

Post by Newsroom - Mar 09, 2016

North Korea’s provocative nuclear rhetoric has gotten so bad the Kremlin has officially warned continued nuclear threats could justify an invasion. The warning was issued in the form of a written statement from the Russian foreign ministry. It follows North Korea’s threat it would engage in a “preemptive and offensive nuclear strike” in reaction to the start of joint U.S.-South Korean war games Monday. “We consider it to be absolutely impermissible to make public statements containing threats to deliver some ‘preventive nuclear strikes’ against opponents,” said the statement, as translated by the Russian TASS news agency. “Pyongyang should be aware of the fact that in this way the DPRK [North Korea] will become fully opposed to the international community and will create international legal grounds for using military force against itself in accordance with the right of a state to self-defense enshrined in the United Nations Charter.” Russia also had harsh words for the U.S. and South Korea, condemning the “unprecedented” exercises. “The development of the situation on the Korean peninsula and around it is causing growing concern,” said a statement issued Monday. Russia actually shares a tiny border with North Korea as shown in the map below: More importantly, the ENTIRE country of Russia falls within the geographic range of North Korea's new Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles which, as claimed by Kim Jung Un just yesterday (08 March 2016) can now be equipped with miniaturized nuclear warheads. The range of those new missiles is shown on the map below: Now, not only has China cut the North Koreans loose from Chinese protection, Russia is now warning them to knock it off with the nuke threats too! This could go downhill very rapidly because this public rebuke of North Korea will be seen by them as an "insult to their sovereignty" or some such nonsense, and they'll likely go off the deep end and "warn" Russia. Which is the last mistake North Korea will ever make . . . . Vladimir Putin is not Barack Obama. Putin won't sit still for North Korea's threats.

ON A KNIFE-EDGE: US to deploy BOMBERS close to China border as tensions flare

THE US are set to deploy long-range bombers close to the Chinese border as tensions between the powerhouses reach boiling point.

By Charlie Peat PUBLISHED: 04:45, Wed, Mar 9, 2016 | UPDATED: 05:06, Wed, Mar 9, 2016

US officials are currently seeking to strike a deal with Australia that will see its military forces temporarily based in the North of the country, near to the fiercely disputed South China Sea. The highly contentious area is mostly claimed by Beijing but Brunei, Malaysia, the Philippines, Taiwan and Vietnam have all staked claims in parts of the sea. Tensions between the US and China have already increased after the US Navy sailed near the disputed islands – pushing the limits of the Asian superpower. China then stoked the fires between the countries by deploying advanced missiles, fighters and radar equipment on islands in the South China Sea. US defence secretary Ash Carter last week warned of "specific consequences" if China takes "aggressive" action in the region. General Lori Robinson said the US will continue to patrol the disputed waters and called upon Australian allies to follow suit. She said: "We would encourage anybody in the region and around the world to fly and sail in international air space in accordance with international rules and norms.” General Robinson said the deployment of B-1 bombers and aerial tankers to Australia would “strengthen ties” between the US and Australia. She added: “It gives us the opportunity to strengthen the ties we already have with the Royal Australian Air Force and it gives the opportunity to train our pilots to understand the theatre and how important it is to strengthen our ties with our great allies, the RAAF.”

LaVoy Finicum shot 3 times as he reached for gun, investigators say

As Robert "Lavoy" Finicum powered his Dodge pickup over Devine Summit on the state highway north Finicum glanced over at the state trooper in the driver's seat as he went past. He pointed a finger at him, as if to say "I see you" and kept going. That likely was the moment Finicum realized he and his group wouldn't make the community meeting planned that evening in John Day. Less than 30 minutes later, Finicum was dead and four other leaders of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge takeover were in handcuffs. New and sharper details emerged Tuesday of what happened Jan. 26 along U.S. 395 as police released their investigation of the fatal confrontation. Until now, most of what was known came from a soundless surveillance video, a single statement from the FBI and reports from three witnesses who were passengers in Finicum's convoy. But a lengthy video shot inside Finicum's truck adds voice and sound to the tumultuous events as they unfolded that afternoon. Accounts from the state troopers and FBI agents who tried to arrest Finicum and police photographs also round out the picture. Police so far aren't releasing names of any of the officers involved. Back in January, Oregon State Police and the FBI worked for two days in their Burns command post to plan how to scoop up virtually all the central figures of the armed refuge takeover. Ammon Bundy, 40, of Emmett, Idaho, and about a dozen others had seized the refuge headquarters on Jan. 2. The main compound of the 187,757-acre bird sanctuary is nestled against sage-covered hills on the Oregon desert about 30 miles southeast of Burns. As the occupation stretched from days into weeks, Bundy and the other protesters moved freely back and forth to Burns and surrounding communities without interference by police. Police knew the leaders planned to travel to John Day in Grant County to the north on the only direct highway there – U.S. 395. They devised a traffic stop by state troopers to allow FBI agents to arrest the group on federal conspiracy charges. By midday, some members of the arresting team positioned themselves on Forest Service Road 2820, which branches east off the state highway toward a snow park near the summit of Devine Ridge. Another team set up roughly two miles north on the highway, prepared to act as a roadblock. Around 4:20 p.m., Finicum was first to pass the state police tactical van and two state police tactical pickups waiting on the Forest Service road. Next was the Jeep ferrying Ammon Bundy. Police fell in behind both vehicles, flipping on red and blue lights. Mark C. McConnell, 37, of Buckeye, Arizona, steered his Jeep to the edge of the highway while Finicum drove another several hundred yards before rolling to a stop straddling the highway center line. Bundy, McConnell and Brian D. Cavalier, 44, of Bunkerville, Nevada, gave up without trouble. One trooper later recalled to investigators that Bundy, his bodyguard and his driver were "almost being friendly" as they were arrested. Troopers and FBI agents who stopped Finicum's truck encountered a different response. At one point, Ryan W. Payne, 32, of Anaconda, Montana, the tactical leader of the refuge takeover, put both hands out the front passenger window. It looked as if he had something in his hands, worrying police that he had a weapon. A state trooper hit the truck with an orange 40mm round with a hard foam nose containing pepper spray. The strike prompted Payne to retreat. In the truck cab, Payne and Finicum debated their next move. Finicum wanted to run, according to Shawna J. Cox, 59, of Kanab, Utah, who was sitting in the back seat. Payne thought it wiser to surrender. He yelled to police that he was stepping out. "I do have a gun on my right hip," he said, and was told to step out anyway with his hands in the air. He was soon in handcuffs. Finicum over the next four minutes told police that he intended to drive on, according to video captured by Cox on her cellphone. Finicum repeatedly referred to Glenn Palmer, the Grant County sheriff who had earlier met with some of the occupation leaders and suggested authorities give in to the occupiers' demands to free an imprisoned pair of ranchers and for the FBI to leave the area. The sheriff was scheduled to be at the community meeting where Finicum and others were to talk about the Constitution and challenging federal ownership of public land. Palmer declined comment or to answer written questions after the news conference to announce the investigation results. "The sheriff is waiting for us," Finicum yelled out the driver's window to the officers and agents staged behind his truck. He puts his hands out the window and invited police to shoot. "Back down or you kill me now," he said. He repeated twice more that he was going to meet the sheriff. Payne had told police when he surrendered that women were among the passengers in the truck and they should be allowed out. The police apparently pressed Finicum to let that happen. He turned toward Cox and Victoria Sharp, the 18-year-old gospel singer sitting in the middle of the back seat. "Want out?" he asked. "What for?" Cox responded. "What are we getting out for?" Ryan Bundy, 43, of Mesquite, Nevada, seated behind Finicum with a .38-caliber pistol and two rifles within reach, yelled out the window: "Who are you?" Finicum echoed him. "Yeah, who are you?" "Oregon State Police" came the reply. "I'm going over to meet the sheriff in Grant County," Finicum said. Police continued demanding Finicum turn off the truck and surrender, according to officer statements to investigators. But they didn't move against those in the truck as they waited for a trooper posted at McConnell's Jeep to bring a launcher with multiple pepper spray rounds. Those in the truck talked about what to do next. "If we duck and you drive, what are they going to do?" Cox asked Finicum. "Try to knock us out?" He noted they still had "50 ass miles" to go to reach John Day. He turned up the volume on country music that had been playing on the radio. "Who can we call?" Bundy asked. "Sheriff Palmer," Finicum responded. As Bundy and Cox tried to get a cell signal, Finicum continued yelling at police. "You want a blood bath?" he asked. "I'm going to be laying down here on the ground with my blood on the street or I'm going to see the sheriff." He told police to back down and then told those in the truck, "I'm going to keep going." "Then we have to duck," Cox said. "Where's the guns?" Bundy asked. "You ready?" Finicum asked the group. "Go," said Cox. "Gun it." Finicum accelerated north on the highway, traveling at an estimated 70 mph on the mountain road with a state police van in pursuit. Less than a minute later, Finicum rounded a corner to find two FBI pickup trucks and one state police pickup facing him in the road. A state trooper at the roadblock feared Finicum would plow into the trucks, injuring or killing police posted there, he later told investigators. He fired three rounds from his AR-15, hitting the truck in the hood above the headlight, smashing off the driver's mirror and hitting the radiator. The truck was just 100 feet away when the trooper fired the last shot. "Hang on," Finicum said as he encountered the roadblock and the first bullet hit the truck. Another state trooper who had been posted along the highway edge had run for the woods as the truck approached to get out of the way, sinking into deep snow at one point. He recovered in time to make it to the protection of the tree line. An FBI agent also moved west off the road as the truck advanced. "Hang on," Finicum said a second time as he steered the truck to the left. The FBI agent who had just moved was now in the path of the truck. He dropped to the ground, bracing to be run over. Instead, Finicum's truck created a wave of snow that buried him and stalled before hitting the agent. Finicum instantly stepped out of the truck, his hands out to his sides at about shoulder height. Investigators concluded that an FBI agent on the highway clipped off two shots, one that went wild and one that pierced the truck roof and shattered the left rear passenger window. A shell fragment struck Bundy in the shoulder. The trooper who had made it to the tree line had drawn his revolver and now commanded Finicum to get on the ground. "Go ahead and shoot me," Finicum said. "Get on the ground," the trooper yelled back. Finicum continued yelling "Shoot me" and "You're going to have to shoot me." He turned his attention from the trooper in the woods to two troopers coming up behind him, including the one who had fired at the truck. As Finicum shifted direction, the trooper in the woods holstered his gun and drew out his Taser X2, which can be effective from 25 feet but works best at about 15 feet. Finicum at least twice reached with his right hand toward the inside of his left jacket, where he had a loaded Ruger SR9 semi-automatic pistol that had been a gift from his stepson. He then turned back toward the trooper approaching with the Taser. He again reached for his jacket. "It was consistent with drawing a handgun," the trooper with the Taser told investigators. "He's going for a gun and I can tell you right now, uh, I was very uncomfortable." He continued ordering Finicum to stop. "He had the drop on me at this point," the trooper said. One of the troopers who had been coming up behind Finicum saw the same motion – "consistent with grabbing a firearm" is how he described it to investigators. "I need to take action to stop him from being a threat" to the trooper with the Taser, he later told investigators. He fired two rounds, both striking Finicum in the back. At the same instant, another trooper nearby fired a single round into Finicum's back. Finicum fell in the snow while police turned their attention to those still in the pickup truck. Bundy, Cox and Sharp weren't clear what had happened. "Dammit," Cox said at the sound of gunfire. "Are they shooting him?" At that point, non-lethal sponge rounds, designed to stop but not kill people, can be heard striking the truck. Sharp yells "Oh my God" and shouts that she is a medic, apparently wanting to go to help Finicum. The cellphone recording makes clear none of the three saw Finicum shot. "Where the hell is Lavoy?" Cox asked. "I can't see," said Bundy. Fifty seconds after Finicum left his truck, the shooting was over.

Kyle Andrew Odom, 30, was taken into custody without incident Tuesday night in Washington. His arrest came after he threw flash drives and other unknown objects over the White House fence, police said. Hazmat and bomb teams determined the items were nonhazardous, the Secret Service said.

Trump Could Put An End to Hillary Clinton Once and for All

Suffice it to say, that the bulk of the Patriot community stands in steadfast support of the Constitution, particularly, the Bill of Rights. Patriots expect the government to serve people over corporations and hold government officials accountable when they are guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors. It is quite apparent that Cruz, Rubio and Kasich have failed miserably in this regard as all three candidates, in one way or another, are responsible for the mess that the country presently finds itself in. Clinton is the harbinger for all that is wrong with American politics. Sanders only appeals to Americans who want something for nothing and view government as their own personal third parent. By process of elimination, it is easy to see why Donald Trump should be, and would be, the people’s choice. However, this doesn’t answer the question, is Donald Trump truly an ally of the strong, conservative base in this country, known as the Patriot community? Trump On a Critical Patriot Issue Hillary Clinton is the most dangerous person in America. She is vulnerable. Trump could take her down, today, if he chose to do so. We don’t need Benghazi or the email scandal to do so. We only need to expose her relationship with criminal BLM. Trump has taken us half way there. Will he finish the job One of my readers recently sent me a published account of a story run by the Reno Gazette-Journal, which was published right before last month’s Nevada Republican Primary. The story was a collection of statements containing criticisms of the BLM and their heavy-handed ways when it comes to interacting with local ranchers and farmers. The statements were issued by none other than Donald Trump. In the article, Trump made the point that the BLM’s steadfast resistance to releasing land, in combination with Trump’s hot-button issue, namely the failure to enforce immigration laws, is “damaging the economy, lowering the standard of living and inhibiting natural economic growth.” As I perused what Trump wrote, I was hopeful that he would condemn Hillary Clinton for her illegal complicity involving the BLM, which amounted to treason against the American people. I had hoped that I would read that Trump would bemoan the needless and avoidable execution of an unarmed Lavoy Finicum for daring to challenge the BLM’s terrorist tactics against the lifeblood of the country, the farmers and the ranchers. Unfortunately, Trump did not address any of these critical issues, but this is what Trump did have to say about the BLM: “The BLM controls over 85 percent of the land in Nevada. In the rural areas, those who for decades have had access to public lands for ranching, mining, logging and energy development are forced to deal with arbitrary and capricious rules that are influenced by special interests that profit from the D.C. rule-making and who fill the campaign coffers of Washington politicians. Honest, hardworking citizens who seek freedom and economic independence must beg for deference from a federal government that is more intent on power and control than it is in serving the citizens of the nation.” In and around Clark County, the situation is even worse,” as Trump referred to the now infamous Bundy Ranch standoff in Bunkerville, Nevada. Trump did raise one salient point in the article when he stated that “Because the BLM is so reluctant to release land to local disposition in Nevada, the cost of land has skyrocketed and the cost of living has become an impediment to growth.” At least Trump covered the fraud issue involving the BLM and their pandering to special interests. However, he did not go far enough and Trump failed to make this issue of the young campaign, the issue that it should become. Mr. Trump, please allow me to show you how woefully short you came up in describing the BLM as a rogue, terrorist and organized crime organization. BLM Is an Accomplice to Murder If readers have not seen the enhanced copies of the video involving the execution of Lavoy Finicum, by the FBI at the behest of the BLM and it’s organized crime practices, please click here and be prepared to be outraged beyond belief. All Presidential candidates should be promising a complete investigation when they are elected. This is the case of an American being executed for defending his Fifth Amendment property rights. Clinton, Uranium One and the BLM Are Accomplices In Treason and Murder After each successive primary victory, Trump says that “Hillary Clinton will be easy to defeat in November”. And that “she may not be allowed to run”. Mr. Trump needs to stop dancing and speaking in generalities and tell the awakening public WHY she won’t be allowed to run. Clinton is a criminal in the highest degree. Many know about the emails. However, many do not know Clinton and her abject and undeniable treason when it comes to the BLM, Uranium One and treason against the people of the United States. Clinton Is Selling Uranium From Bundy and Hammond Ranches to Russians to Fund Presidential Campaign. The undeniable documentation, beginning with the establishment’s own New York Times, is overwhelming to this end. Conclusion Donald Trump could do America the favor of exposing this fraud and Clinton’s ultimate connections to treason by fermenting the transfer of nuclear materials to our enemies, the Russians. And for what purpose? In order to secure cash for her 2016 campaign. And as long as Attorney Loretta Lynch is in place, Clinton will never be prosecuted. If Mr. Trump is intent on telling it like it is, these BLM related issues are a perfect gateway to “Making America Great Again” by cleansing our souls through the lens of self-recrimination. Please Mr. Trump, put Hillary out of her misery. Congratulations to Mr. Trump for his resounding victories in Mississippi and Michigan last night in the Republican Primary. However, it is time that Mr. Trump took his justifiable outrage against the criminal establishment and use it to better educate the American people about what they should be fighting for. Thank you Mr. Trump for identifying the BLM as the criminal organization that they are. However, you are missing an opportunity to knock Clinton out of the race and put her in prison where she belongs. Mr. Trump, if you want to win November, this is your golden opportunity.

Breaking: TURKEY POINT NUCLEAR PLANT IS PUMPING POLLUTED WATER INTO BISCAYNE BAY

By Erin Elizabeth - March 9, 2016

Above: Photo I posted in my article in 2014 about this dangerous plant and radiation levels here in Florida! (Most available update 12 p.m.: FPL responded to the study, saying it needs more time to review the specific data but defending its efforts to protect Biscayne Bay. “Our top priority is the health and safety of the public, and there is no threat to the health and safety of the public,” says Bianca Cruz, an FPL spokeswoman, reports Miami New Times.) When Florida Power & Light finalized plans to expand nuclear reactors at Turkey Point three years ago, critics like us weren’t happy (we wrote about this in 2014!). The nuclear plant, which is currently on environmentally fragile land, would threaten the ecosystem if production increased. Sadly, we were right; Tuesday morning, the county released the results of a study they did on whether Turkey Point has been leaking wastewater into Biscayne Bay (I know I don’t have to tell you how dangerous this is). County water monitors found levels of tritium (a radioactive isotope) at more than 200 times the normal level, in the bay water. This is another blow for Florida Power & Light who recently lost a state court ruling (last month) when a judge found they had failed to prevent hundreds of thousands of gallons of wastewater from seeping into the bay. From the Miami New Times article: “‘This is one of several things we were very worried about,’ says South Miami Mayor Philip Stoddard, who is also a biological sciences professor at Florida International University. ‘You would have to work hard to find a worse place to put a nuclear plant, right between two national parks and subject to hurricanes and storm surge.'” Local government officials are scrambling to figure out just how threatened the Bay is currently. “I was shocked to read this,” says Commissioner Xavier Suarez, who in a letter demanded answers from FPL “by the end of the day”, reports Miami New Times. State Rep. Jose Javier Rodriguez feels that state regulators haven’t taken this issue seriously for years, and have therefore put people and the environment in serious danger. At the center of the issue is a system of canals surrounding the plant in Miami-Dade. The canals circulate water through the plant to help leach heat off the reactors which must be constantly cooled in order to avoid meltdowns. When FPL was preparing to expand their reactors in 2013, critics warned that relying on the canals was a mistake; environmentalists argued that the hot, salty canal water would inevitably leak back into Biscayne Bay and the Everglades. In two years, heat levels in the canals have spiked and salty water has been found as far as four miles inland, through groundwater. It is unclear whether the elevated tritium levels are dangerous to people or wildlife at their current concentrations, so more studies need to be done. But what is known is that the hot, salty water is a huge problem for the delicate ecosystems in the Everglades and in Biscayne National Park. Mayor Stoddard believes at this point that there are only two solutions: build new cooling towers and get rid of the canals or shut down the plant. More from the article: “FPL spokeswoman, points out the agency reached an accord with the county last October. In the agreement, FPL promises to clean up its act by pumping wastewater into a deep aquifer, among other steps. ‘We’ll continue to comply with regulatory agreement we reached with the county in October,’ Cruz says. Cruz also emphasized that FPL has collected its own data on impacts to Biscayne Bay and has seen no indication of a larger pollution problem (Oh I’m sure). ‘We’ve collected this data for many years, and this data has reviewed by independent scientists,’ Cruz says. ‘We’re going to continue to work closely with regulatory agencies.'” Since we’ve already been concerned about this AND reported on it two years ago, we will continue to watch this issue closely and keep you informed.

Columbia River flowing with hormone-disrupting, cancer-causing flame retardant chemicals, scientists warn

Wednesday, March 09, 2016 by: Julie Wilson staff writer

(NaturalNews) Flowing through the Pacific Northwest, the Columbia River Basin is known for its magnitude, as it empties more water into the Pacific Ocean than any other river in North and South America. Known for its plentiful salmon population, which has declined dramatically since the early 1900s, the river supplies life to countless plants, animals, fish, birds and insects. The river holds economic viability, as it generates hydroelectric power, but is also sacred to tribal fisheries, offering scenic and recreational value. However, under current conditions, its beauty might not be sustainable, as corporations and urbanization continue to erode and pollute nature. For decades, scientists have detected an increase in a variety of chemical contamination in the Basin, threatening vulnerable wildlife. The most widespread pollutants in the Basin are mercury, DDT, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and fire retardants, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) 2009 State of the River Report for Toxics. Until recently, the increasing presence of flame retardants in nature has puzzled scientists, but a new study spearheaded by a Washington environmental advocacy group finally provides some answers. The peer-reviewed study published in the journal Environmental Science & Technology found "that flame retardants are sloughing off household products such as couches and TVs and collecting on people's clothing, washing out in the laundry and passing through wastewater treatment plants into local waterways," reports Oregon Public Broadcasting (OPB). Flame retardants "sloughing" off furniture, electronics and appliances are ending up in the environment and sickening wildlife The results bring a whole new meaning to "dirty laundry," says the Washington Toxics Coalition, which tested household dust as well as laundry wash-water from 20 homes in Longview and Vancouver, Washington. Samples were also taken from incoming and outgoing water from two wastewater treatment plants that empty into the Columbia River. Flame retardants were detected in all three of the samples, reports confirm. This study is the first to connect the river's toxic chemicals to people's clothing. "Toxic flame retardants are hitchhiking on our clothes and literally coming out in the wash," said Erika Schreder, the study's lead author and science director for the coalition. "This study demonstrates for the first time a key way that toxic flame retardants found in our homes are transported to outdoor environments." Schreder's investigation discovered 21 different fire retardants in the household dust that was tested, and 18 in laundry wash-water. Dated and insufficient equipment prevents some wastewater treatment plants from filtering out the chemicals, allowing them to eventually enter into the environment. Based on existing chemical levels in nature, scientists estimate that 1 to 4 percent of the annual production of flame retardants is leaching from consumer products and polluting waterways, reports OPB. Some of the species adversely affected by these contaminants include juvenile salmon, bass, mountain whitefish and predatory birds like bald eagles, as well as otters, mink and shellfish. Washington Toxics Coalition fighting for ban on flame retardants Exposure to flame retardants is also a problem for people, with some of them being carcinogenic. Motor skills, learning, memory and behavior can all be affected following exposure, as well as the reproductive system. While one class of fire retardants called PBDEs (for polybrominated diphenyl ethers) was taken off the market due to health concerns, another chemical mixture called TDCIPP, or "chlorinated tris," has replaced it, which is also linked to disrupting reproductive systems, the Environmental Working Group reports. Washington Toxics Coalition is working with the state legislature to pass a ban on the chemicals, preventing future products containing fire retardants from entering the market. While the measure passed the House with a bipartisan vote of 72-25, ultimately pressure from the chemical industry prevented it from moving past the Senate. However, Gov. Inslee reportedly proposed a "toxics-reduction package" that would phase out several chemicals responsible for inflicting harm on wildlife.

The Department of Homeland Security Has Grown Into A Monster Which Now Preparing For ”MASS CIVIL BREAKDOWN”

The Department of Homeland Security is spending millions of dollars in preparation for a “Mass Civil Breakdown,” usiAmong my questions, I asked: “Does the US Department of Defense see protest movements and social activism in different parts of the world as a threat to US national security? If so, why? Does the US Department of Defense consider political movements aiming for large scale political and economic change as a national security matter? If so, why? Activism, protest, ‘political movements’ and of course NGOs are a vital element of a healthy civil society and democracy – why is it that the DoD is funding research to investigate such issues?” Minerva’s programme director Dr Erin Fitzgerald said “I appreciate your concerns and am glad that you reached out to give us the opportunity to clarify” before promising a more detailed response. Instead, I received the following bland statement from the DoD’s press office: Also read: When The Apocalypse Finally Does Happen, How Will Society Survive And What Will It Look Like? “The Department of Defense takes seriously its role in the security of the United States, its citizens, and US allies and partners. While every security challenge does not cause conflict, and every conflict does not involve the US military, Minerva helps fund basic social science research that helps increase the Department of Defense’s understanding of what causes instability and insecurity around the world. By better understanding these conflicts and their causes beforehand, the Department of Defense can better prepare for the dynamic future security environment.” Who is this mysterious enemy that the U.S. Government is planning to fight? Over the last couple of years, the federal government has spent billions upon billions of dollars studying civil unrest. In fact, the federal government has even built multimillion dollar mock U.S. cities to train for what they say are “problems that we don’t even know we have yet.” While the government may want the public to believe this money is being spent to “secure the homeland” from foreign attacks, a disturbingly large amount of money seems to have been allocated towards fighting U.S. citizens. Even scarier, is how the government has managed to build its own domestic army without a single person in Washington D.C. saying a word. The Department of Homeland Security now has over 240,000 full-time employees, with a budget of over $61 billion dollars a year – pretty incredible considering this agency didn’t even exist prior to 9/11/2001. Started under George Bush, DHS was established to prevent terror attacks in the United States. But under this new administration, the agency has grown into a monster which now oversees the U.S. Coast Guard, Customs and Border Protection, Secret Service, Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) – all of whom now have heavily armed SWAT teams and massive amounts of firearms and ammunition. Also read: 12 Tips to Survive The Next Economic Collapse and The Beginning of the Next Great Depression To make matters worse, earlier this month the Obama administration actually reinstated a federal task force that’s mandate is to go after U.S. citizens who have anti-government views and “racial prejudice.” This drew harsh criticism from even those who normally support this administration, with the ACLU saying they have major “concerns that it could be a sweeping mandate to monitor and collect controversial speech.” The Domestic Army/Police force: The formation of a Civilian National Security Force During the 2008 presidential campaign, then Candidate Obama said something in a speech that got very little attention at the time. While speaking to a crowd of supporters, Obama said, “We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”ng universities to study how the U.S. military can respond to civil unrest.

The government program, called the “Minerva Research Initiative,” which started in 2008, became public when The Guardian revealed details of the program. The multi-million dollar project is designed to help the U.S. Government put down civil disturbances by targeting political movements, identifying political activists and even using social media sites like Twitter to identify and target “peaceful activities and protest movements.” According to the Guardian, the Minerva program has $75 million in government funds allocated over five years for social and behavioral science research. This year alone it has been allocated a total budget of $17.8 million by US Congress. I contacted the project’s principal investigator, Prof Maria Rasmussen of the US Naval Postgraduate School, asking why non-violent activists working for NGOs should be equated to supporters of political violence – and which “parties and NGOs” were being investigated – but received no response. Similarly, Minerva programme staff refused to answer a series of similar questions I put to them, including asking how “radical causes” promoted by peaceful NGOs constituted a potential national security threat of interest to the DoD.

This 4,000-year old financial indicator says that a major crisis is looming

Simon Black March 8, 2016 Sydney, Australia

Over 4,000 years ago during Sargon the Great’s reign of the Akkadian Empire, it took 8 units of silver to buy one unit of gold. This was a time long before coins. It would be thousands of years before the Lydians in modern day Turkey would invent gold coins as a form of money. Back in the Akkadian Empire, gold and silver were still used as a medium of exchange. But the prices of goods and services were based on the weight of metal, and typically denominated in a unit called a ‘shekel’, about 8.33 grams. For example, you could have bought 100 quarts of grain in ancient Mesopotamia for about 2 shekels of silver, a weight close to half an ounce in our modern units. Both gold and silver were used in trade. And at the time the ‘exchange rate’ between the two metals was fixed at 8:1. Throughout ancient times, the gold/silver ratio kept pretty close to that figure. During the time of Hamurabbi in ancient Babylon, the ratio was roughly 6:1. In ancient Egypt, it varied wildly, from 13:1 all the way to 2:1. In Rome, around 12:1 (though Roman emperors routinely manipulated the ratio to suit their needs). In the United States, the ratio between silver and gold was fixed at 15:1 in 1792. And throughout the 20th century it averaged about 50:1. But given that gold is still traditionally seen as a safe haven, the ratio tends to rise dramatically in times of crisis, panic, and economic slowdown. Just prior to World War II as Hitler rolled into Poland, the gold/silver ratio hit 98:1. In January 1991 as the first Gulf War kicked off, the ratio once again reached 100:1, twice its normal level. In nearly every single major recession and panic of the last century, there was a sharp rise in the gold/silver ratio. The crash of 1987. The Dot-Com bust in the late 1990s. The 2008 financial crisis. These panics invariably led to a gold/silver ratio in the 70s or higher. In 2008, in fact, the gold/silver ratio surged from below 50 to a high of roughly 84 in just two months. We’re seeing another major increase once again. Right now as I write this, the gold/silver ratio is 81.7, nearly as high as the peak of the 2008 financial crisis. This isn’t normal. In modern history, the gold/silver ratio has only been this high three other times, all periods of extreme turmoil—the 2008 crisis, Gulf War, and World War II. This suggests that something is seriously wrong. Or at least that people perceive something is seriously wrong. There are so many macroeconomic and financial indicators suggesting that a recession is looming, if not an all-out crisis. In the US, manufacturing data show that the country is already in recession (more on this soon). Default rates are rising; corporate defaults in the US are actually higher now than when Lehman Brothers went bankrupt back in 2008. These defaults have put a ton of pressure on banks, whose stock prices are tanking worldwide as they scramble to reinforce their balance sheets against losses. I just had a meeting with a commercial banker here in Sydney who told me that Australian regulators are forcing the bank to increase its already plentiful capital reserves by over 40% within the next several months. This is an astonishing (and almost impossible) order. The regulators wouldn’t be doing that if they weren’t getting ready for a major storm. So even the financial establishment is planning for the worst. Good times never last forever, especially with governments and central banks engineering artificial prosperity by going into debt and printing money. These tactics destroy a financial system. And the cracks are visibly expanding. So while the gold/silver ratio isn’t any kind of smoking gun, it is an obvious symptom alongside many, many others. Now, the ratio may certainly go even higher in the event of a major banking or financial crisis. We may see it touch 100 again. But it is reasonable to expect that someday the gold/silver ratio will eventually fall to more ‘normal’ levels. In other words, today you can trade 1 ounce of gold for 80 ounces of silver. But perhaps, say, over the next two years the gold/silver ratio returns to a more historic norm of 55. (Remember, it was as low as 30 in 2011) This means that in the future you’ll be able to trade the 80 ounces of silver you acquired today for 1.45 ounces of gold. The final result is that, in gold terms, you earn a 45% “profit”. Essentially you end up with 45% more gold than you started with today. So bottom line, if you’re a speculator in precious metals, now may be a good time to consider trading in some gold for silver.

Will Black Lives Matter Team Up With ISIS To Try To Stop The Republican Convention? ISIS Warnings Of 'Enormous And Spectacular Attacks' This Summer Coincide With Depraved Fantasy In Hollywood's 'The Purge: Election Year'

Why Would 'Black Lives Matter' Put Out A 'Riot Gear Flyer' In Arabic For The Republican Convention Protests?

March 8, 2016 By Stefan Stanford - All News Pipeline - Live Free Or Die

The UK has just issued a massive terrorism warning as British police prepare for potentially 'enormous and spectacular' attacks from ISIS in the UK as ISIS moves into its 'next natural phase' we are told. Warning us that ISIS had moved on from a 'narrow focus' of police and military as the 'symbols of state' to 'something much broader', the assistant commissioner of London's Metropolitan police also tells us that the terror group has 'big ambitions' and those 'big ambitions' include attacking the Western lifestyle as a whole. With these latest threats in the UK combined with recent threats made by ISIS to 'disrupt the election process in the US', Allen B West tells us that the UK has one huge advantage in the fight against ISIS over America; a leader who will call it what it is...Islamic terrorism. Meanwhile in America, we continue to get set up for a massive fall as huge numbers of people continue to flood into the country, many of them coming in illegally, while govt does little to nothing to stop them or find out if they have bad intentions, potentially putting every American at risk. Interestingly enough and likely not by surprise, we also are seeing a new twist in what authorities in America may soon have to deal with this summer as a Black Lives Matter activist has put out a new flyer on 'proper riot gear' in both English and Arabic. Why are they putting this flyer out in Arabic and not Spanish, French, Russian or one of the other huge number of languages spoken by immigrants here in America? Is this a sign that BLM is attempting to lure in ISIS terrorists? Should this be seen as a huge red flag as the same BLM group threatens to shut down the Republican convention with protests? Interestingly enough, both ISIS and BLM are seeking to disrupt our legal election process. According to West, the guide comes from a 26-page pamphlet originally produced in Egypt in 2011 to assist protesters seeking the overthrow of Hosni Mubarak. West adds: The guide was posted by Ashley Yates, who uses the handle @BrownBlaze on Twitter. Breitbart says Yates is a prominent protest organizer in the Black Lives Matter movement and an advocate for violence. Is Yates’ post just a tweak at all the “Islamophobes” out there or an open invitation to activists with a completely different agenda? We’ll have to wait ‘til July to find out. etc. and the news story continues.

Gen. Boykin: First Transgender Man Enters My Daughter's Bathroom Won't Have to Worry About Surgery

By Michael W. Chapman | March 8, 2016 | 11:28 AM EST

Commenting on anti-Christian attacks in America and the radical LGBT agenda that says transgender men can use women’s bathrooms, Lt. Gen. (ret.) William “Jerry” Boykin, former chief of U.S. Army Special Operations Command and a top member of Delta Force, said Christians need to fight this “evil,” and added that the first transgender man that walks into his daughter’s bathroom won’t have to worry about sex-change surgery. “I’ve already said, and somebody will be recording this and this’ll be on YouTube before it’s all over with,” said Boykin at The Awakening 2016 conference. “But I will tell you what: the first man that walks in my daughter’s bathroom, he ain’t going to have to worry about surgery.” Earlier in his remarks, Boykin said, “Where is the Christian world today? Where are the Christians of America today? They should be flocking to people like Kim Davis.” “They should be flocking to the city council and say, ‘No, you’re not going to let a man go in my daughter’s bathroom just because he feels like a man today,’ said the lieutenant general. “Where are the Christians that are standing up to this kind of evil?” he said. As he continued, “And I’ve already said, and somebody will be recording this and this’ll be on YouTube before it’s all over with. But I will tell you what: the first man that walks in my daughter’s bathroom, he ain’t going to have to worry about the surgery.” “That’s not right,” said Boykin. “That is not right. It’s not right. It’s ungodly. But it’s also just unnatural. This is crazy. Where are the Christians that are standing up?” Lt. Gen. Boykin served in the U.S. Army from 1971 to 2007. He was one of the founding members of Delta Force. He headed the U.S. Army Special Forces Command, and participated in Operation Urgent Fury, Operation Just Cause, and Operation Restore Hope. He has been awarded the Legion of Merit, the Bronze Star, and two Purple Hearts, among other military honors. “Jerry” Boykin currently serves as the executive vice president of the Family Research Council.

Market Meltdown Already Underway-Gregory Mannarino

By Greg Hunter On March 9, 2016 In Market Analysis 8 Comments

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com

Trader/analyst Gregory Mannarino says forget about the recent market rally, the markets “have nowhere to go but down.” Mannarino explains, “According to the charts, something big has already begun. This is not a ‘maybe this will happen,’ this has already started. The market averages have gained over the past few weeks, but we had an abysmal start to the year. The only reason we have seen this stock market rally is on speculation of crude oil. They will not allow crude oil to drop anymore because it is a currency. There are too many things linked to it. . . . Nothing has changed fundamentally. What does this mean? This has been a fool’s rally.” Mannarino also says, “The world powers are trying to get together to stop this. It can’t be stopped. They have inflated this bubble in debt, and that is the greatest threat to humankind. . . . People can’t say when is the crash coming? It’s already here. It’s already begun.” The data that Mannarino sees it’s just screaming “crash.” Mannarino contends, “What it is screaming is the market wants to do its sole job, and that is to establish fair market value for assets. It’s something that it has not been allowed to do since runaway central banks have taken over this entire thing by manipulating the debt market, the biggest market of them all. They have been successful in creating massive distortions across the spectrum. I am talking currencies, housing, crude oil, derivatives and the stock market. This will correct to fair market value. It’s a mathematical certainty, and it’s already begun.” On silver, Mannarino says it has turned and is on its way up—way up. Mannarino says, “It’s broken out. I would expect a slight pullback . . . then we are going to get a much higher move. . . . It’s in an early corrective stage, and it’s going to be epic moving forward. The same thing has happened for gold.” Mannarino points out the stunning move in gold over the last three months as proof of a gold breakout. Mannarino thinks it will be especially bad for people not awake or prepared. Mannarino says, “This is going to get a lot worse. On an individual level, we have to understand what we have to do for ourselves and our families to get through this. No matter what is happening on the political front, there is no stopping what is coming. . . . We’re going back to a two-tier society. We are seeing it happen. The middle class is being systematically destroyed. We are going to have a feudal system of the haves and the have nots. People walking around blindly thinking it’s going to be okay are going to suffer the worst.” Mannarino’s advice is to “Bet against this debt and that means hold hard assets; also, become your own central bank. Their system has already failed and it’s coming apart.” Join Greg Hunter as he goes One-on-One with Gregory Mannarino of TradersChoice.net.

Deflation Is Coming To The Auto Industry As Used Car Prices Drop, Off-Lease Deluge Looms

Submitted by Tyler Durden on 03/08/2016 17:46 -0500

Last week, we learned that vehicle leasing as a percentage of monthly light-vehicle sales hit a record in February at 32.3%. In other words, a third of the over 1 million cars and light trucks “sold” during the month were leases, according to J.D. Power. This is indicative of what is now a long-term trend. Have a look at the following chart from WSJ, which shows that since 2009, the share of monthly auto leases as a percentage of vehicle sales well more than tripled: So what does that mean for dealers? Deflation. And what does that mean for the automakers? Hefty losses. Nothing about this is hard to understand. You get a supply glut causing pricing assumptions for your existing inventory to prove wildly optimistic and you end up with giant writedowns. This has happened before. "The auto industry expanded the use of leasing in the mid-1990s, helping to fuel retail sales of new vehicles," WSJ recounts. "Eventually, a glut of off-lease cars sent resale values down and auto lenders who had bet residuals would remain high ended up racking up billions of dollars in losses, having to sell the cars for much less than they anticipated." Right. Nothing difficult to grasp about that. But the especially silly thing about the dynamic with auto leases is that it was the dealers and the automaker-affiliated financing companies that made the leases in the first place. In other words, it's not like this was some supply shock that couldn't have been forecast ahead of time. In fact, they knew exactly when the off-lease deluge would start, so it's not entirely clear why they would have set optimistic residual assumptions. Anyway, the cracks are already starting to show. The Manheim Used Vehicle Value Index posted its largest Y/Y decline in over two years last month, falling -1.4% and -1.5% M/M. We're now 3.5% below the peak. "All else equal, it puts pressure on lease residuals - though we note most fincos had assumed declining used vehicle prices in their lease writing," Goldman said, earlier today. "Second, while improving inventory acquisition cost for the dealers, it may put downward pressure on the value of existing dealer inventories, which can be negative for used margins." Well yes, declining used vehicle prices "may" be a "negative for used margins" - in fact that's almost a tautology. And of course falling used car prices means pressure on new car prices as well, which would be a shock to America's booming auto market. Obviously, the scariest part about all of the above is that consumers still have the pedal to the metal (pun fully intended) when it comes to leases, which means there's no end in sight to the off-leases and thus no way to determine, at this juncture, how big the residual writedown wave and deflationary auto industry calamity will ultimately end up being. So, you know... "buckle up." Bonus chart: largest used car price decline for any February since 2008

Central Banks Are About To Leave Fiat Addicted Stock Markets In Agony

Wednesday, 09 March 2016 03:44 Brandon Smith

Many investors today are not very familiar with market history and tend to live only in the day-to-day mainstream narrative while watching little red and green graphs move up and down. This is not so much an issue in a relatively stable economic environment. The problem is, today we live in the most unstable economic conditions possible. These investors and analysts are simply not aware that some of the most exciting stock rallies occur during the most volatile crises, and so they interpret every rally of a few days to a few weeks as a signal for recovery. However, in this kind of fiscal environment, all the gains made in a few weeks can be lost in moments. After the Great Depression began to take hold in U.S. markets, massive rallies unfolded over the span of weeks and sometimes months, only to end in a collapse to even lower depths. For example, in 1930 the Dow Jones enjoyed historic rallies twice, gaining 48% only to lose it all, then gaining more than 16% and crashing down to a 50% loss for the year. Each consecutive year there were multiple rallies of more than 25% and each time they disintegrated. By 1932 stocks were only worth approximately 20% of what they were worth in 1929. Bear market rallies continued to give false hope to investors and the public throughout the crisis, and mainstream banks and economists continued to exploit such rallies to capitalize on those false hopes. I mention this to put our markets today in perspective. Mainstream analysts and some banking moguls are already declaring a reversion of the instability that was launched at the beginning of this year due to the spike in stocks over the past three weeks. I explained the reason behind this comparatively short term rally in my article “Markets Ignore Fundamentals And Chase Headlines Because They Are Dying.” In desperation, the investment world has placed all its hopes on renewed stimulus measures this March by China and the European Central Bank. They have also made bets that the Fed will not raise rates again until the end of this year, if they raise rates again at all. I believe the next two weeks will be very telling in terms of how the rest of the year in markets will progress. If mainstream analysts and investors are placing faith in further central bank intervention, they may be greatly disappointed. Every action of the central bankers this year has indicated a shift away from open intervention. The taper of quantitative easing (QE) has run its course and no new QE has been announced since. The rate hikes were launched in December despite all traditional logic to the contrary and now, Fed officials appear to be staying on track for more hikes in the near term. Kansas City Fed President Esther George told Bloomberg that a fed rate hike in March should “absolutely remain on the table.” San Francisco Fed President John Williams said there has been “no substantial change” in his view of the economy or the rate hikes and that said rate hikes will likely continue as planned. Goldman Sachs argues that there will only be “three” more rate hikes this year, rather than four, although, this is three more rate hikes than the investment world was asking for. Fed statements have given little clue as to the timing of the rate hikes, but all fed statements have so far presented an attitude that they plan to “stay the course.” For now, stock markets do not want to accept this reality. I believe that the Fed will be raising rates again in the near term. I believe there is a possibility for the fed to surprise with a rate hike at their meeting this March 15th and 16th. If this does not occur, the Fed will likely hint of a hike in June in their press statements. Another hike so soon (or even the threat of an assured hike) will absolutely strangle any market gains made in the past few weeks. Another date to watch out for will be the March 10th meeting of the European Central Bank. All eyes are on renewed ECB stimulus; not only renewed stimulus, but stimulus measures vastly beyond what the ECB has initiated in the past. I am not sure why investors’ expectations are so high for the ECB to save the day. The last time this kind of exuberance hit stock markets over a European stimulus package was in December of last year, and the ECB dashed all those hopes into the dirt with a mediocre response. This aided directly in the stock market volatility that came in January and February. So, the markets are praying for the ECB to “do it right this time.” I highly doubt the ECB's eventual decision will satisfy the unrealistic expectations of the investment community. In fact, I believe the central bank will offer little or nothing, and stocks will come crashing down just as they did after the December meeting. It wasn’t long ago that the entire financial universe was focused on whether China would intervene in their own markets, either with more stimulus or by arresting more investors that were betting against their stocks. The days of outright Chinese stimulus appear to be over as reports come in that the National People’s Congress concluded without any mention of large scale action to artificially support the Chinese economy. This should not be a surprise to anyone who was paying attention; China’s president warned in January that more economic stimulus is “not the answer to the nation’s challenges.” So, what does this mean? Well, first and foremost, it shows that the attitude of central bankers is moving away from intervention. As I have stated many times in the past, actions like the Fed taper of QE3 and the rate hikes only make sense if central banks are planning to ALLOW the markets to decline. The rate hike meetings, stimulus meetings, and the fact that they allow investor conjecture on stimulus to continue without much official contradiction, helps international financiers to control the speed at which this crash occurs. But the fact remains that they are not acting to stop the crash, nor will they act. There are no fundamental economic indicators that are positive enough to support a market recovery or an economic recovery. All moves in stocks are based on nothing but the delusions of fiat addicted stock players waiting for more printing to feed their habit of “buying the dip” without having to think strategically and educate themselves on sound investments. That is to say, investors have become addicted to central bank manipulation of markets, but now the central banks are cutting off their supply of smack. Where is this all going? I have mentioned in past articles the tendency of elitists to warn the public of coming economic collapse, but these warnings are always far too late for anyone to do much to prepare. They do this because they KNOW that a crisis is coming. They know a crisis is coming because THEY created the circumstances which are causing it. The money elites inject warnings into the media not to help the public, or to encourage positive solutions. Rather, they offer these warnings so that after the crash they can present themselves to the public as “good Samaritans,” or fortune tellers who “tried to save us.” They are, of course, neither of these things. The Bank for International Settlements, the central bank of central banks, has released yet another dire warning into the mainstream, stating that “official” global debt is now 200 percent of GDP and that this debt is unsustainable. They have also warned of a “gathering storm” and the “loss of faith in central banks” as 2016 moves forward. On top of this, none other than Lord Jacob Rothschild has released his own cautionary letter on the global economy, stating that we are now “in the eye of the storm.” Why are central banks allowing a controlled demolition of our economy to take place instead of propping up and manipulating markets as they have for the past few years? You can read my many articles on the globalist endgame for a detailed explanation, but to summarize – problem, reaction, solution. International financiers want a completely centralized global economic structure, including a single currency system, the eventual removal of physical currency to be replaced with more easily controlled digital currency, and ultimately a central authority for global economic governance. In the pursuit of a “New World Order,” they must destroy the structure of the “old world.” Covertly engineer an economic problem, get the masses to beg you to save them from that problem, then offer them the solution you always intended to give them. Our current crisis, what the International Monetary Fund calls the “global economic reset,” has only just begun. Though sometimes we must read between the lines or connect a few dots, in most cases the banking elites tell us exactly what they are going to do before they do it. It’s time we start listening, stop buying into the day-to-day hype and hopes of false recovery, and prepare accordingly.

Major Meat Company Goes Antibiotic-Free After Charged with 33 Counts of Animal Cruelty

But will this help fix the rampant animal cruelty?

by Christina Sarich Posted on March 8, 2016

Largely in response to consumer demand, Tyson will be sourcing their pork meat from pigs raised without antibiotics. This could mean, by default, that Tyson’s pigs will be treated better. We shall see. [1]

This is a new trend, it seems, since just last year mega-companies like McDonald’s promised to move away from chicken raised with antibiotics, and would only use cage-free eggs. Though this is not the same thing as humane treatment of animals used in agriculture, it is a move in the right direction. Antibiotic-Free, but Riddled with Animal Cruelty Recently, Tyson was charged with 33 counts of animal cruelty when a Mercy for Animals activist filmed a video during a routine work day at a plant in Carthage, Mississippi. Affidavits were filed in a Leake county Justice Court against Tyson and 6 of the company’s workers. Here is a link to a video showing the cruel treatment. Warning: it has graphic content. Tyson made the following comments about the video that was taken: “We’re appalled by the actions shown in this video and have been investigating a claim of animal mistreatment in this area of the plant since late last week. We have already terminated two of the workers shown in the video, who were clearly in violation of the company’s animal handling policy. Mercy for Animals has reportedly submitted a misdemeanor complaint with county officials over this matter, however, to our knowledge no criminal charges have been filed by any government agency. We believe proper animal handling is an important moral and ethical obligation. Everyone who works with live animals in our plants – including the person who secretly shot this video – is trained in proper animal handling and instructed to immediately report anything they believe is inappropriate. Workers are encouraged to report bad behavior to their supervisor as well as the Tyson Foods compliance and ethics hotline. “ The National Resource Defense Council says that 80 percent of antibiotics sold in the US are meant for farm animals, not humans, but they still contribute to antibiotic resistance in us. Most of these antibiotics aren’t even given to animals that are sick, but are used in their feed every day to counteract poor living conditions and a less-than-pristine environment that might promote sickness.

Adam Dick March 7, 2016

(RPI) Expect the indictment of former United States Secretary of State Hillary Clinton or one or more of her high-level aides from the State Department in the next few months. Fox News Senior Judicial Analyst Andrew Napolitano explained in a Fox Business panel discussion last week that the granting of immunity against self-incrimination to Bryan Pagliano, who helped set up the private email server for Clinton that is central to an ongoing investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), means the Department of Justice intends to secure indictment of a person or people up the “totem pole” from Pagliano in the Hillary Clinton email scandal. Concludes Napolitano, “I think there will surely be indictments prior to November.” November, of course, is when the US presidential general election, in which Clinton hopes to compete as the Democratic nominee, will take place. Based on the fact that immunity was granted to Pagliano, Napolitano derives many details of the current state of the government’s investigation into Clinton’s emails. In particular, Napolitano asserts that the following is known: So we know already the FBI is interacting with the Justice Department, the FBI has already made some recommendations to the Justice Department, the Justice Department has accepted those recommendations seriously, has convened a grand jury, and has begun or will soon begin to present evidence to the grand jury, and they need Mr. Pagliano’s testimony immunized, which means he no longer has the privilege against self-incrimination because they can’t use against him whatever he says. It also means — this is profound — they intend to indict someone. It’s not Bryan Pagliano; he can only be indicted if he commits perjury if he lies under oath. But, they intend to indict someone in this chain north of him. Supporting his conclusion that an indictment or indictments are in the works, Napolitano, who is a former New Jersey state judge, provides some background information regarding how immunity grants work in the US court system. First, notes Napolitano, “only a federal judge can grant immunity.” Napolitano further explains that a federal judge will only grant such immunity for a witness “the government needs to testify before some proceeding,” which Napolitano notes in this instance would be a grand jury proceeding. “The procedure to obtain immunity,” Napolitano continues, “is so time consuming and involves such resources, they would not do it just for the heck of it; they would not do it just to satisfy newspaper editorials or political commentators.” Instead, he concludes, “they would only do it if they are seriously presenting evidence before a grand jury and they need the live testimony of this witness.” So, who might be indicted? Napolitano mentions a few possibilities: Clinton, Patrick Kennedy, Philippe Reines, Cheryl Mills, and Huma Abedin. “The typical federal procedure,” elaborates Napolitano, “is to start at the bottom — either indict the person and they spill the beans or get immunity for the person and they spill the beans — and work your way up.” Napolitano said last month that, even without Pagliano’s testimony, the evidence related to the Clinton emails scandal shows that Clinton’s “failure to care for national security secrets is now well documented, overwhelming, publicly known, and publicly understood.” What is not clear, he noted, is whether President Barack Obama would OK her prosecution. If recommended prosecution of Clinton is blocked, Napolitano predicts in the new Fox Business panel discussion, Clinton will still be harmed. “If the FBI tells the Justice Department, ‘we have enough evidence — solid, legally obtained evidence — to indict and convict,’ and the Justice Department rejects that,” suggests Napolitano, “expect resignations from the FBI and leaks of all the evidence.” And that situation, says Napolitano, “will have a catastrophic effect” on Clinton’s presidential candidacy.

Paul Ryan’s Plans Stopped Cold by Trump, Cruz Insurgency

by Breitbart News8 Mar 2016

Bloomberg’s Billy House writes that House Speaker Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) 56% is “struggling to do the most basic duties of Congress” because the popularity of Donald Trump and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)

97% has crippled his agenda. From Bloomberg Politics: It was never going to be easy for House Speaker Paul Ryan to cut through the noise of a presidential campaign and chart out a course of conservative policies for the Republican Party. But the bombast and divisiveness of the presidential campaign has left Ryan struggling to do the most basic duties of Congress. With the two Republican front-runners — Donald Trump and Senator Ted Cruz — effectively running against Congress and the rest of the Republican establishment, Ryan more than ever needs to deliver on some kind of agenda in his first full year as speaker. Otherwise, he could help cement Congress as a distinctly junior partner in a Trump or Cruz presidency. His biggest problem is that the policies and rhetoric of his party’s presidential front-runners have become unusually out of step with a large portion of Republicans in Congress, notes Joshua Huder, a senior fellow at Georgetown University’s Government Affairs Institute. “Ryan has to navigate what’s best for his conference amidst one of the more major upheavals of his party,” Huder said. “He’ll either need to lay low and let the fight play out in the presidential race, or he’ll need to outline priorities that protect his conference at the expense of his party’s nominee.”

YOU WON’T BELIEVE WHAT THEY DID TO THE OHIO BALLOT TO STOP TRUMP

Piper McGowin March 9, 2016

We all know the elite are on the warpath against Donald Trump, with everyone from pundits, to major world leaders, to the Pope speaking out against him. Newt Gingrich recently said it’s because Trump isn’t part of the secret societies and hasn’t taken the initiation rites. Regardless, Trump has received a groundswell of support from the average conservative American, winning state primaries left and right. Ohio’s primary is coming up on March 15, and it’s a big one because it’s a “winner takes all” state. Well now it’s being alleged that Ohio’s GOP has intentionally set up a confusing ballot in a bid to try to make sure Donald Trump does not win. READ : WHY YOU NEED TO PREPARE FOR THE CASHLESS SOCIETY: “THEY WANT AN INTIMATE KNOWLEDGE OF WHAT YOU BUY AND SELL” The Dem ballot has one place for voters to mark their choice for president. Period. The Republican ballot in Ohio this year apparently has two, leaving a lot more questions than answers about whether or not voters will understand how it works. Take a look, (via the Conservative Treehouse): s the ballot intentionally confusing by design? Given the previous discussions on State Party shenanigans, and the intent of state republican party leadership to hold complete influence over their delegate’s decision-making, many believe the answer is “probably”. Look at that ballot. It definitely raises a lot of questions… that aren’t answered on the ballot. Do the majority of voters know the difference between “Delegates-at-Large” and “District Delegates”? Does a person need to choose their candidate twice, or are they only supposed to chose once? Which is right? What if they pick a different candidate in each box, do they cancel each other out? What if they pick someone in the first box and not the second, or vice versa? Why the confusing GOP ballot, Ohio?

American commandos capture key ISIS asset

CBS/AP March 9, 2016, 10:55 AM

U.S. commandos have captured a chemical weapons expert for the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), CBS News national security correspondent David Martin reports. The capture has led to at least one strike in Iraq's second largest city, Mosul, which was designed to destroy a building where mustard gas munitions were believed to be manufactured. There are 12 reported instances of ISIS using mustard gas on the battlefield. It's the first known major success of Washington's more aggressive policy of pursuing the jihadis on the ground. The Obama administration launched the new strategy in December, deploying a commando force to Iraq that it said would be dedicated to capturing and killing ISIS leaders in clandestine operations, as well as generating intelligence leading to more raids. U.S. officials said last week that the expeditionary team had captured an ISIS leader but had refused to identify him, saying only that he had been held for two or three weeks and was being questioned. The two Iraqi officials identified the man to The Associated Press as Sleiman Daoud al-Afari, who worked for Saddam Hussein's now-dissolved Military Industrialization Authority where he specialized in chemical and biological weapons. They said al-Afari, who is about 50 years old, heads ISIS' recently established branch for the research and development of chemical weapons. He was captured in a raid near the northern Iraqi town of Tal Afar, the officials said. They would not give further details. The officials, who both have first-hand knowledge of the individual and of the ISIS chemical program, spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity as they are not authorized to brief the media. The U.S.-led coalition began targeting ISIS' chemical weapons infrastructure with airstrikes and special operations raids over the past two months, etc. and the news story continues.

Kim Jong-Un threatens to turn the US into 'flames and ashes' as he orders more nuclear tests and oversees another ballistic missile launch

Kim Jong-Un threatens to turn the U.S. and South into 'flames and ashes'

This week the dictator also oversaw two more ballistic missile launches

He demanded further nuclear capability tests, according to state-run media

By Corey Charlton for MailOnline Published: 03:48 EST, 11 March 2016 | Updated: 05:54 EST, 11 March 2016

North Korean tyrant Kim Jong-Un has threatened to turn Washington and Seoul into 'flames and ashes' and demanded further nuclear capability tests in his pariah state. Tensions have intensified on the peninsula with South Korea and the US reportedly engaged in joint 'decapitation strike' exercises designed to simulate wiping out the North's leadership. In turn, Jong-Un has overseen two short-range ballistic missile tests and ordered more 'nuclear explosion tests to estimate the destructive power' of his 'newly produced nuclear warheads'. Since the joint drills began Monday, the North has issued daily warnings and statements, talking up its nuclear strike capabilities and threatening its neighbours and the allied US. Just days after he was photographed posing in front of what state media described as a miniaturised nuclear warhead, Kim also said the weapon required further testing. Experts are divided as to just how far the North may have gone in shrinking warheads to a size capable of fitting on a ballistic missile - a major step forward in strike capability that would present a heightened threat to South Korea, other countries in the region and, eventually, the US mainland. According to state news agency KCNA, Thursday's launch of two short-range ballistic missiles, which traversed the eastern part of the country before falling into the Sea of Japan, was part of a nuclear strike exercise. The aim was to simulate conditions for 'exploding nuclear warheads from the preset altitude above targets in the ports under enemy control,' the agency said. Watching the exercise, Kim reiterated an earlier threat to launch an immediate nuclear attack if the 'sabre-rattling' South Korea-US drills should harm 'even a single tree or a blade of grass' on North Korean territory. 'I will issue a prompt order to launch attack with all military strike means,' he said. Military tensions on the divided Korean peninsula have been on the rise since the North carried out its fourth nuclear test in January, followed by a long-range rocket launch last month. South Korea and the United States responded by scaling up their annual joint drills, which Pyongyang has always condemned as provocative rehearsals for invasion. The North's anger has been fuelled this year by reports that the drills included a 'decapitation strike' scenario in which the North Korean leadership and command structure is taken out at the start of any conflict. In light of such drills, 'our self-defensive countermeasures should adopt a more preemptive and offensive mode,' Jong-Un said. The UN Security Council responded to the North's latest nuclear test and rocket launch by adopting tough, new sanctions, which Pyongyang condemned as a 'gangster-like' provocation orchestrated by the US. Reacting to the tyrant's call for more nuclear tests, South Korea said the North Korean leader was being 'rash' and displaying his ignorance of international opinion. 'The international community is imposing strong and comprehensive sanctions and this only goes to prove why they are necessary,' said Unification Ministry Spokesperson Jeong Joon-Hee. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Thursday voiced grave concern over the growing tensions, and urged North Korea to avoid any further 'destabilising acts.' Jong-Un, however, chose to highlight the need for a diversified nuclear strike force, capable of delivering warheads from the ground, air, sea and underwater. The North has conducted a number of what is says were successful tests of a submarine launched ballistic missile. Outside experts have questioned the results of those tests, suggesting Pyongyang had gone little further than a 'pop-up' test from a submerged platform.

North Korean nuclear test shook the earth but where's the proper proof?

VIENNA | By Shadia Nasralla Fri Mar 11, 2016 12:05am IST

Two months after what is widely believed to have been a nuclear test by North Korea, the radioactive particles to prove it have yet to be detected, suggesting the communist state is getting better at hiding the fallout, experts say. Fifty-five days after North Korea's previous test in 2013, those particles, known as radionuclides, wafted over a monitoring station in Japan, proving what seismic evidence already suggested - that an atomic bomb had been detonated. Now, 64 days after North Korea announced its latest test and seismic data appeared to confirm it, diplomats and nuclear analysts suspect final technical proof may never materialise. "With every day that passes, it becomes less likely that we will get a conclusive analysis," said one diplomat who follows North Korea's nuclear programme closely. January's detonation followed three previous nuclear tests by North Korea, the last before January's was the 2013 one. Back then, the Comprehensive Nuclear Test-Ban Treaty organisation (CTBTO), a body monitoring seismic and radionuclide data world wide, confirmed the nuclear bomb test as such by analysing traces of the colourless, odourless noble gas xenon. The CTBTO system can differentiate between chemical and nuclear explosions. It cannot differentiate between a standard nuclear bomb test and a hydrogen bomb test, a more powerful nuclear weapon that North Korea claimed to have used. CTBTO head Lassina Zerbo and other diplomats have said seismic data did not indicate the test involved a hydrogen bomb. "It can be assumed that North Korea is getting better at hiding the results of its nuclear tests, and sealing off the area where they are testing to prevent nuclides from leaking into the atmosphere," Mark Hibbs, nuclear expert at think tank Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, said. Experts and diplomats caution that due to xenon's short nuclear half live it now might be too late to get such proof. "Over 55 days after the announced nuclear test in the DPRK, several recent radionuclide measurements could be consistent with either a release from a test or with other possible sources, and are therefore not conclusive," CTBTO's Zerbo said in an emailed statement about North Korea. The CTBTO's analyses are based on a network of data centres across the globe which collect seismic and radionuclide data and which have in the past been the first points to pick up on North Korea testing a nuclear bomb. Difficult weather patterns make such analyses more complex. "The task may be even more difficult now if the North Koreans have been working to improve their nuclear explosion containment techniques," Daryl Kimball, executive director of the Arms Control Association, said in an emailed statement.

How the Russian Orthodox Church is backing Vladimir Putin's new world order

mark-woods Mark Woods Christian Today Contributing Editor 03 March

The US presidential election race has focused attention on the role of religion there. Ostensibly a country that prizes freedom of religion, in practice its politicians who aren't seen to be "Christian" have a built-in disadvantage. The Republican nomination process in particular has highlighted the religious nationalism of many American evangelicals, who see patriotism and Christianity as deeply intertwined. Thousands of miles away, however, there's an ideological synergy between Church and State which is just as unhealthy. Under its leader Patriarch Kirill, the Russian Orthodox Church (ROC) has backed the aggressive expansionism of President Vladimir Putin, which has seen him extend Russian power into Crimea and eastern Ukraine. Kirill described Putin at a religious leaders' meeting in 2012 as "a miracle of God". It supported a government crackdown on "gay propaganda" in 2013. The ROC has made billions from trading concessions granted to it by the government. It is increasingly asserting its position as the largest of the 14 self-governing Orthodox Churches and is using its political muscle in support of Putin's aims. It's no friend to evangelicals, especially in the Russian-occupied parts of Ukraine, seeing them as puppets of the West. But how has it become so powerful – and how is it using its power? An answer has to begin with Kirill himself. An imposing figure, he looks – and plays – the part of a Russian Orthodox Patriarch to perfection. Ordained in 1969, Vladimir Mikhailovich Gundyayev, as he was then, rose through the ROC's heirarchy and was elected as Patriarch in January 2009. According to material from Soviet archives, Kirill was also a KGB agent; as Patriarch he dedicated a church to the KGB. While his political closeness to the regime has been criticised, he has also been tarnished by the ROC's financial dealings. After the fall of the Soviet Union the Church received special privileges, including the right to import alcohol and tobacco free of duty. It made massive amounts of money as a result through a string of companies with interests in areas ranging from TV to oil. Profits from the cigarettes operation alone – which ended in 1997 – were estimated at $4 billion by The Moscow News in 2006. Kirill has always denied profiting personally from the operations, though his credibility was undermined when he was seen wearing a Breguet watch worth $30,000 in 2012 – and further undermined when spin doctors made a clumsy attempt to airbrush the watch out in a picture on the ROC website. Church and state in harmony More important than his taste in wristwear, however, is Kirill's concept of how the Church and State should work together. Speaking at a conference on Ukraine in Lambeth Palace last April, participants highlighted the role of Orthodoxy in Putin's new world order. According to Mykhailo Cherenkov, a Ukrainian Baptist who is a Professor in Philosophy at Ukrainian Catholic University, the fall of the Soviet Union left Russia with an ideological vacuum. What had held the USSR together, and Russia itself, was a belief in communism. When the Berlin Wall fell and Mikhail Gorbachev's reforms led to the abandonment of the communist enterprise, Russia needed a "new ideological binding agent". And, said Cherenkov, there was a tool ready to hand. The ROC fulfilled the same purpose as communism in giving Russians something to believe in. "It was Orthodoxy that served as the main ferment in the formation of a new Russian identity from the beginning of Putin's presidency. If, in Soviet times, the mark of the majority was political atheism, then now it is political Orthodoxy." The Orthodox Church supports the state. It's patriotic to be Orthodox – and Orthodox to be patriotic. The Russian state's wars become holy wars. Cherenkov says of the Ukraine conflict: "The goal of the 'Holy War' is not seizure of territory, or change of power, or defeat of opponents, but the victory of faith over all lack of faith and false teaching, of the only right picture of the world over all wrong ones, of truth over all untruths. If Rus is Holy, then her faith and truth are the only Orthodox ones."

A fake patriotic religion? Reuters A man cries outside his damaged house, which locals said was hit by shelling, in Donetsk, Ukraine. This statement is echoed by Joshua Searle, a lecturer at Spurgeon's College and Visiting Professor at Ukrainian Catholic University. He told Christian Today: "It needs to be made clear that the ROC hierarchy is essentially a political construct. The church structure is based not on gospel values of freedom, truth and enlightenment, but on fear, authoritarianism and the promotion of nationalism under the guise of religious zeal. This kind of fake patriotic religion deifies the State and gives divine sanction to a nation's imperialism. "The ROC can even invoke the name of "God" as an idol who has bestowed a special blessing and favour on Russia, which then allegedly gives 'Holy Russia' the right to invade and conquer neighbouring territories and subdue their peoples. Such a sham Christianity, which is a denial of Christ and the gospel, will always refuse to accept any higher power and will ruthlessly destroy any forms of genuine Christian faith that go beyond cultural or national identity." Evangelical Christians are suffering disproportionately in the Russian-occupied areas of Ukraine, he says; the ROC "regards evangelicals as 'sectarians' or even as 'Western spies' and as a dangerous presence on its 'canonical territory'". For Searle, this is "idolatrous, nationalistic official Christianity, which encourages war and hatred towards other nations, is inimical to the gospel and is under the control not of Christ, but of the dark 'powers and principalities' to which the author of Ephesians alluded". After 1,000 years, a meeting in Havana It's against this background that the meeting on February 12 at Havana airport between Kirill and Pope Francis has to be seen. The encounter was widely, and generally warmly, reported; moves toward healing a thousand-year rift make good headlines. Francis and Kirill released a joint statement afterwards – prepared by their 'sherpas' and agreed in advance, obviously – which was largely uncontroversial. It referred to the terrible persecution faced by Christians, the desirability of unity, poverty, inequality and the family. It also referred, as it could hardly avoid doing, to Ukraine. Francis, as head of a sovereign state, is accountable to no one in his diplomatic initiatives, but Kirill – whose visit had to be sanctioned by the Kremlin – the wording of these sections would have been hugely challenging. That's not to say that it wasn't a diplomatic test for Francis too. Observant readers will have noticed that three of the theologians quoted are linked to the Ukrainian Catholic University (though they are not all Ukrainian Catholics). The Ukrainian Catholic Church derives from Orthodox bishops who re-established communion with Rome in 1595. They're regarded as schismatics by the ROC and there is constant tension over their buildings and property. The Ukrainian Catholic problem So the meeting between Kirill and Francis was deeply problematic for the Ukrainian Catholics, whose Archbishop Sviatoslav Shevchuk said the text of their agreement had caused "deep disappointment" for them and that he had not been consulted. While it expressed the hope that "our meeting may also contribute to reconciliation wherever tensions exist between Greek [ie Ukrainian] Catholics and Orthodox", it also said it was "clear that the past method of 'uniatism, understood as the union of one community to the other, separating it from its Church, is not the way to re-establish unity" – a clear challenge to the Ukrainian Catholics and an extraordinary concession by the Vatican. It also said that "the ecclesial communities which emerged in these historical circumstances have the right to exist" – a half-hearted gesture by the ROC. The Ukrainian Catholics are not 'ecclesial communities', which is a dismissive expression also used of Protestants, but a Church. According to the Catholic Herald, Shevchuk said the two sides "existed on two completely different planes and were pursuing different goals", with Francis experiencing the meeting as a spiritual event while "From the Moscow patriarch, one immediately sensed that this wasn't about any Spirit, or theology or actual religious matters." Shevchuk said the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity, which drew up the declaration, had been "exploited" during the drafting process by the Russian Orthodox Department of External Affairs. While this apparent bickering over jurisdiction and ancient Church history might seem trivial in face of the suffering – now largely ignored in the West – of Ukraine, it's very characteristic of the ROC's concerns. In the bewildering array of Ukraine's competing Churches, it's also in dispute with the Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church and the Kiev Patriarchate of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church. Each of these bodies was the product of post-Revolutionary politics in the region. The point, however, is that as far as the ROC is concerned, it's the only legitimate Church. It wants to reclaim the territorial authority of which it believes it was wrongly deprived – a desire that puts it right alongside the neo-imperial ambitions of Vladimir Putin. Russians, the ROC and the future And in a sign of how well the ROC is playing in Putin's Russia, a survey just released by the Levada Centre shows more than half (56 per cent) of Russians are satisfied with the role played by the Church and religious NGOs in state politics. Furthermore, growing numbers of Russians want to see the Church increase its influence on the maintenance of public morality, with 47 per cent of respondents in favour of this idea in February 2016. According to Levada Center sociologist Karina Pipiya: "The authorities are constantly articulating the important role of Orthodoxy as one of the components of 'special national identity,' in contrast with Western values and patterns, and people willingly support this idea, especially during periods of worsening relations between Russia and the West." On both sides of the Atlantic, religion is playing a role in politics. In neither case does it appear to be a particularly healthy one. And while there is, in the US, a system of checks and balances to control it, things are very different elsewhere. It remains to be seen how religion will continue to shape Putin's Russia.

RT Founder Mikhail Lesin’s Fishy Blunt Force ‘Suicide’

03.10.16 5:26 PM ET

It had been a mystery for months, but evidence of foul play has mounted in the death of Kremlin-backed media figure Mikhail Lesin. An ex-aide to Russian President Vladimir Putin did not die of a heart attack in a Washington, D.C. hotel room last year as was previously reported, but from “blunt force injuries of the head” as well as “the neck, torso, upper extremities, and lower extremities,” a spokesperson with the D.C. medical examiner’s office told The Daily Beast. The medical examiner reported Mikhail Lesin’s “manner of death” is “undetermined.” Almost immediately after Lesin’s body was discovered last November, the broadcasting outfit RT (Russia Today), widely seen as a Kremlin mouthpiece, reported that Lesin died of a heart attack, citing an unnamed “family member.” For months, Washington authorities said the case was still under investigation, though they had performed an autopsy, and declined to disclose the official cause of death—an unusual delay. But the news that Lesin died of multiple, violent injuries is certain to raise questions about whether the former propaganda chief for the Russian government was murdered. When police found Lesin’s body, the most interesting question wasn’t the cause of his demise, but what he was doing in the United States in the first place. Lesin, one of the founding fathers of RT and nicknamed “the bulldozer” for his history of rolling over his opposition, had been under scrutiny by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Justice Department for potential money laundering and violation of anti-corruption laws. Lesin was suspected of hiding ill-gotten gains in nearly $30 million worth of luxury real estate in southern California, an astounding set of assets for a man supposedly collecting a civil servant’s salary. He’d also been considered for sanctions that would have prevented him from obtaining a visa to enter the U.S. Sen. Roger Wicker, a Republican from Mississippi who has spent years looking into corruption and human rights abuses in Russia, had asked the Justice Department to investigate Lesin. In December 2014, the department confirmed it had referred Lesin’s case to its criminal division and to the FBI. While officials declined to say whether they formally opened an investigation, several close watchers of Lesin’s case told The Daily Beast they thought it was all but certain that he was being pursued by U.S. law enforcement. And if he wasn’t under active criminal investigation, the FBI had enough evidence to consider opening a case, they said. The mystery surrounding Lesin’s death had fueled speculation that Lesin was murdered after coming to Washington to cut a deal with the FBI. The conspiracy theories are arguably well-founded, because it wouldn’t be the first time someone who posed a political threat to Putin wound up dead under unusual circumstances. Lesin certainly would have had a lot to say about Putin’s inner circle—he worked with, and reportedly owed money to, some of the most powerful men in Russian media and finance. And he would have had a powerful incentive to cooperate with U.S. authorities, namely hanging onto his several mansions in Los Angeles, which potentially could have been seized. At least two of the homes are known to be occupied, respectively, by his daughter and his son, a Hollywood film producer whose star is on the rise. Lesin was also being squeezed by the U.S. government. Two years ago he’d been nominated by human rights groups for the so-called Magnitsky list of Russian human rights violators, which would have allowed Washington to deny him a visa and seize his assets in this country. Lesin was not placed on the public list, which consists mainly of mid-level officials not as influential as the former propaganda chief. But U.S. officials maintain a classified annex which reportedly includes more senior Russians, including those closer to Putin. It’s not known whether Lesin was on that list, but activists lobbied hard to put him there. Following a Freedom of Information Act filed by The Daily Beast, the Department of Homeland Security disclosed that Lesin hadn’t obtained a green card or any legal residency status in the U.S. Upon the news of Lesin’s death, the Kremlin issued a statement on behalf of Putin, noting that he had a “high appreciation for Mikhail Lesin’s massive contribution to the creation of modern Russian mass media.” But having Lesin as an informant would been a big contribution to U.S. law enforcement and intelligence. And the information that Wicker and his staff, as well as human rights groups and journalists, dug up on Lesin may have pushed him closer to the FBI’s arms—and ultimately into the path of a killer.

Doomsday Weapon: Russia’s New Missile Shocks and Dazzles US, China

13:36 09.03.2016(updated 13:38 09.03.2016)

Russia’s advanced RS-26 intercontinental ballistic missile has raised admiring eyebrows of military experts everywhere, the official Rossiiskaya Gazeta newspaper wrote. In a Chinese television program aired earlier this month a local defense expert hailed the unique characteristics of the Russian ICBM and the fear it had instilled in the hearts of foreign militaries, Rossiiskaya Gazeta wrote. “Russia’s new RS-26 missile travels along a continuously changing trajectory and as such it has no analogues in the world,” the expert said. When asked about the US missile defense system, he said that it was “absolutely useless” against the RS-26. “This one is even better than the famous Topol-M missile… Its warheads are supersonic and change their course all the time. Some of them will penetrate any existing missile defense shield and will hit their target,” the expert added. When asked whether the new Russian ICBM had caught the Americans flatfooted, the expert said that not only the Americans were clueless but that the Chinese too now had something to worry about. “Russia is 100-percent safe now, unlike everybody else,” he emphasized. What makes the RS-26 so special is that even though it weighs just 80 tons, compared to the 120-ton heft of its RS-24 Yars predecessor, the Rubezh packs a frightening 1,2 megatons into its four 300 kiloton warheads. With a potential range of 11,000 kilometers the RS-26 can hit targets all across the United States. Moreover, its booster stage is down to under five minutes, which means that NATO radars in Europe will have no time to register the launch. Adding to NATO air defenders’ worries, during the descending section of its trajectory, with only a few hundred kilometers left to the target, the missile’s warheads suddenly take a dive, lose altitude, and continue the approach as a cruise missile. These new Russian ICBM warheads were developed in response to America’s plans to deploy a global missile defense system along Russia's borders. The RS-26 Rubezh is expected to become operational in 2016.

US sending B-2 bombers to Asia amid NKorea tension

By ROBERT BURNS AP National Security Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The U.S. says it has dispatched three B-2 stealth bombers on a training mission to the Asia-Pacific region amid growing tensions with North Korea. The deployment was announced Wednesday by U.S. Strategic Command, which is responsible for U.S. nuclear forces. B-2 bombers are capable of launching nuclear as well as conventional weapons. They are based at Whiteman Air Force Base in Missouri. Strategic Command said the bombers will conduct training with the Australian military during the deployment, etc. and the news story continues.

Secret SKYBORG Pentagon Development Includes ‘Avatar’ Fighters, Drone Swarms

March 10, 2016 by SkyWatch Editor

High over Alaska last summer, the Pentagon experimented with new, secret prototypes: Micro-drones that can be launched from the flare dispensers of moving F-16s and F/A-18 fighter jets. Canisters containing the tiny aircraft descended from the jets on parachutes before breaking open, allowing wings on each drone to swing out and catch the wind. Inch-wide propellers on the back provided propulsion as they found one another and created a swarm And some plans are extremely ambitious: One new project not previously reported is called Avatar, and calls for the Pentagon to pair high-tech “fifth-generation” fighter jets like the F-22 Raptor and F-35 Joint Strike Fighter with unmanned versions of older jets like the F-16 Fighting Falcon or F/A-18 Hornet, which would be flown without a pilot for the first time. The Avatar effort was previously called SKYBORG… (READ MORE)

The Gathering Global Storm - Will A Chinese Takeover Of America Lead To Martial Law In The U.S.? - When Prophetic Dreams Meet Current Events

March 10, 2016 Submitted to All News PipeLine by A Minute To Midnite

The Gathering Global Storm - Exposing The Darkness

Episode 027 Of A Minute To Midnite begins with Chris and Tony discussing world events, including the debt crisis, collapsing economies and the potential Chinese threat to all countries involved in the TPP agreement. The role of gold & silver are also covered. Chris discusses the gold market and the upward moves in the price of precious metals. He states that this is good for this who are invested in these metals, but conversely it is a bad sign for the global economy in general. He reminds us again about the global debt and how it will be "we the people" who will ultimately bear the brunt of the consequences through bail-ins, taxes and negative interest rates. Chris also then discusses two instances of people who have shared directly with him the truth about certain sectors of the economy, and transport and trade, and how they are struggling. One came from within New Zealand, and the other one from Dubai. Tony and Chris discuss some other aspects of what is happening globally. Chris then discusses how important it is to be prepared spiritually, and also by way of physical preparations for the difficulties ahead. The Gathering Global Storm & God's Guidance The main body of the show is an interview conducted with Joanie Stahl by Tony. She shares a couple of prophetic dreams she has recently had. One of them involves a Chinese takeover of America - which is very interesting considering she had no idea of what Chris was intending to discuss at the beginning of the show, and the second one relates to martial law in the US! Tony mentions a dream he had also, which relates to one of the dreams that Joanie shared. Lots of lively discussion ensues from the sharing of these dreams. In the last half of the show, End Time events are discussed in the light of what is currently happening in the world. Planet X, meteor showers, food shortages, World War, gold & silver and other topics are covered. Talk of how for a time at least, gold will be the only thing that will hold it's value (silver would have to be included with that also). We know from Daniel chapter 11 that at some point in the future the Antichrist ( King of the North) will control the reserves of gold and silver. But then at some point fate that the gold and silver will not be able to save people during "The Day of The Lord". With all the calamities foretold to occur, particularly during the latter parts of the Book Of Revelation, it will be food and water that will be decimated as the earth is being devastated. Joanie shares how learning to hear from God to get guidance for the coming events is going to be of paramount importance. It's important for Christians to focus on God, and not have our primary focus on the circumstances. We need to become a people that are so tied into God rather than being our own little gods. End Time topics are covered in some depth, in an interesting discussion that develops. The interview ends. But before the end of the show Tony informs the listeners that following the interview, Tony and Joanie began chatting informally. Initially it was not intended to be another broadcast, just a private chat, but the recording devices were still running during the chat. The conversation turned into one of the best and most powerful discussions they have had, and Tony tells Joanie the recording is still running. From there it turns into a great second interview. 028 - Exposing The Darkness. Demons & Deliverance Episode 028. This is the second interview. It Joanie deals with Joanie's occult upbringing. Then following on from being set free from demonic bondage it recounts how she began to encounter other people in similar bondage. She recalls accounts of some of these experiences, and explains how to see people delivered and set free from demonic bondage. There are some powerful encounters spoken of here - including a girl who manifested a demonic male voice fate retrying to fool people that she was a Christian. Chris closes out the show with great word of warning about how the tares and wheat will grow up side by side in the world ( and the church) and how we must exercise great discernment in order not to be fooled into thinking that the tares are actually wheat. In some cases it won't even be till judgement day that the tares are revealed for what they were! Matthew 13:24-30 (NKJV) 24 Another parable He put forth to them, saying: “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field; 25 but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way. 26 But when the grain had sprouted and produced a crop, then the tares also appeared. 27 So the servants of the owner came and said to him, ‘Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have tares?’ 28 He said to them, ‘An enemy has done this.’ The servants said to him, ‘Do you want us then to go and gather them up?’ 29 But he said, ‘No, lest while you gather up the tares you also uproot the wheat with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, “First gather together the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn.”’

Hacker's typo of the word 'foundation' helped stop billion-dollar bank heist involving the New York Fed

Hackers breached Bangladesh Bank's systems last month, and attempted to move billions to a non-profit in the Philippines

Four requests to transfer a total of about $81million went through

A fifth request - for $20million - was held up because the word 'foundation' was spelled 'fandantion'

Deutsche Bank, which was handling the routing of the money, then called Bangladesh Bank to verify the transfer and they cancelled it

Bangladesh Bank is still trying to recover the money from the four other requests that went through

By Reuters Published: 09:34 EST, 10 March 2016 | Updated: 18:28 EST, 10 March 2016

A spelling mistake in an online bank transfer instruction helped prevent a nearly $1 billion heist last month involving the Bangladesh central bank and the New York Fed, banking officials said. Unknown hackers still managed to get away with about $80 million, one of the largest known bank thefts in history. The hackers breached Bangladesh Bank's systems and stole its credentials for payment transfers, two senior officials at the bank said. They then bombarded the Federal Reserve Bank of New York with nearly three dozen requests to move money from the Bangladesh Bank's account there to entities in the Philippines and Sri Lanka, the officials said. Four requests to transfer a total of about $81 million to the Philippines went through, but a fifth, for $20 million, to a Sri Lankan non-profit organisation was held up because the hackers misspelled the name of the NGO, Shalika Foundation. Hackers misspelled 'foundation' in the NGO's name as 'fandation', prompting a routing bank, Deutsche Bank, to seek clarification from the Bangladesh central bank, which stopped the transaction, one of the officials said. There is no NGO under the name of Shalika Foundation in the list of registered Sri Lankan non-profits. Reuters could not immediately find contact information for the organization. Deutsche Bank declined to comment. At the same time, the unusually high number of payment instructions and the transfer requests to private entities - as opposed to other banks - raised suspicions at the Fed, which also alerted the Bangladeshis, the officials said. The details of how the hacking came to light and was stopped before it did more damage have not been previously reported. Bangladesh Bank has billions of dollars in a current account with the Fed, which it uses for international settlements. The transactions that were stopped totalled $850-$870 million, one of the officials said. Last year, Russian computer security company Kaspersky Lab said a multinational gang of cyber criminals had stolen as much as $1 billion from as many as 100 financial institutions around the world in about two years. Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein's son Qusay took $1 billion from Iraq's central bank on the orders of his father on the day before coalition forces began bombing the country in 2003, American and Iraqi officials have said. In 2007, guards at the Dar Es Salaam bank in Baghdad made off with $282 Bangladesh Bank has said it has recovered some of the money that was stolen, and is working with anti-money laundering authorities in the Philippines to try to recover the rest. A bank spokesman could not be reached for comment late on Thursday. The recovered funds refer to the Sri Lanka transfer, which was stopped, one of the officials said. Initially, the Sri Lankan transaction reached Pan Asia Banking Corp, which went back to Deutsche Bank for more verification because of the unusually large size of the payment, a Pan Asia official said. 'The transaction was too large for a country like us,' the official said. 'Then (Deutsche) came back and said it was a suspect transaction.' A Pan Asia spokesman could not immediately be reached for comment. The dizzying, global reach of the heist underscores the growing threat of cyber crime and how hackers can find weak links in even the most secure computer networks. More than a month after the attack, Bangladeshi officials are scrambling to trace the money, shore up security and identify weaknesses in their systems. They said there is little hope of ever catching the hackers, and it could take months before the money is recovered, if at all. Security experts said the perpetrators had deep knowledge of the Bangladeshi institution's internal workings, likely gained by spying on bank workers. The Bangladesh government, meanwhile, is blaming the Fed for not stopping the transactions earlier. Finance Minister Abul Maal Abdul Muhith told reporters on Tuesday that the country may resort to suing the Fed to recover the money. 'The Fed must take responsibility,' he said. The New York Fed has said its systems were not breached, and it has been working with the Bangladesh central bank since the incident occurred. The hacking of Bangladesh Bank happened sometime between Feb. 4-5, over the Bangladeshi weekend, which falls on a Friday, the officials said. The bank's offices were shut. Initially, the central bank was not sure if its system had been breached, but cyber security experts brought in to investigate found hacker 'footprints' that suggested the system had been compromised, the officials said. These experts could also tell that the attack originated from outside Bangladesh, they said, adding the bank is looking into how they got into the system and an internal investigation is ongoing. The bank suspects money sent to the Philippines was further diverted to casinos there, the officials said. The Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corp, which oversees the gaming industry, said it has launched an investigation. The country's anti-money laundering authority is also working on the case.

ALERT: Legend Warns We Will See Major Turmoil In The Banking Sector And A Massive Surge In Gold In 2016

March 10, 2016

With news out of Europe that Mario Draghi is done with lowering rates for the time being, a legend in the business warned King World News to expect turmoil in the banking sector this year. He also discussed what to expect in the gold market. John Ing: “Right now the action in the gold market is powerful and very impressive. It’s interesting that since the beginning of the year we’ve had this bull run without a meaningful correction, defying all experts… In Volatile Markets, Is Wealth Preservation King? In a King World News interview I spoke with the man who predicted the Swiss National Bank would experience staggering losses and that the Fed would also experience massive losses that will destabilize the global financial system! His company is the only one in the world offering a precious metals investment service outside the banking system, with direct ownership and full control by the investor. He has also become legendary for his predictions on QE, historic moves in currencies, and major global events. To find out what he and his company can do to help answer that age old question for you CLICK HERE. John Ing continues: “I’ve been saying that bull markets climb walls of worry, and we continue to see anti-gold propaganda claiming gold is a barbaric metal, etc. Regardless, gold has been the best performing asset since the beginning of the year. And yet there is huge skepticism. That suggests to me that we have already seen the bottom in the gold market. The action we are seeing is only the beginning of the gold bull market run. I believe that the 4+ year bear market was only an interruption of that 12 year bull market and we will see a lot of room for enormous upside gains in coming years. One of the catalysts of late is the move to negative interest rates in Japan. This policy will not only be innefectual but it also underlines the impotence of the central banks after many rounds of quantitative easing, bringing interest rates to zero, and in some cases below zero, that they have not been able to move the needle in their struggling economies. Second is the shortage of physical gold bullion we have seen recently. This suggests to me that we have a lot of stress in the bullion markets. You also have the fact that there are enormous quantitaties of paper gold in the form of derivatives, unallocated accounts, massive paper leverage, and this further complicates an already tight gold market. Then you have the continuous buying from both China and Russia and this is further complicating an already delicate fractional reserve gold system.” Eric King: “John, what do you expect to see for the rest of 2016?” John Ing: “Short-term we have a $1,325 target. After that there is a bit of resistance at $1,700, but I fully expect that we will see a new all-time record high above the $2,000 level within the next 12 months. Contagion is the watchword. We have concerns about Deutsche Bank and others, and 2016 will be the year where we again see major turmoil in the banking sector. And with less gold coming on to the market and more demand, the price of gold has only one direction to go and that’s signifiacntly higher.”

JOURNAL: Why the Technorati screws up My friend Nassim Taleb (the well known philosopher of decision making) adds to our understanding of why the Technorati routinely make bad decisions (from the management of the economy to national security to social policy). It also explains why they screw up without taking responsibility for it. What we are seeing worldwide, from India to the UK to the US, is the rebellion against the inner circle of no-skin-in-the-game policymaking "clerks" and journalists-insiders, that class of paternalistic semi-intellectual experts with some Ivy league, Oxford-Cambridge, or similar label-driven education who are telling the rest of us 1) what to do, 2) what to eat, 3) how to speak, 4) how to think... and 5) who to vote for. With psychology papers replicating less than 40%, dietary advice reversing after 30y of fatphobia, macroeconomic analysis working worse than astrology, microeconomic papers wrong 40% of the time, the appointment of Bernanke who was less than clueless of the risks, and pharmaceutical trials replicating only 1/5th of the time, people are perfectly entitled to rely on their own ancestral instinct and listen to their grandmothers with a better track record than these policymaking goons. Indeed one can see that these academico-bureaucrats wanting to run our lives aren't even rigorous, whether in medical statistics or policymaking. I have shown that most of what Cass-Sunstein-Richard Thaler types call "rational" or "irrational" comes from misunderstanding of probability theory.

GOP elite: Get your heads out!

Exclusive: Ted Nugent excoriates Republicans for trying to derail Trump, Cruz

Published: 2 days ago

Here, let the guitar player help. You know I’m here to help, right? Tell me you have faith in the old MotorCity Madman when I tell you that I sincerely want to resuscitate the fumbling, bumbling, stumbling, staggering, stammering, gagging, ailing, deaf, dumb and blind GOP and help lead them back on track to self-evident truth, logic, common sense, accountability and that good old long ago GOP American Way. I could start by slapping you Republican goofballs upside the head with the embarrassing reality that you haven’t done jack-diddly to eliminate the obscene government thievery of the death tax, the criminal education fiasco, the nonstop invasion of illegals through our non-borders, the mind-dazzling runaway Democrat tag-team spending orgy, the vulgar dismantling of our military and defense system, the absurdity of denying the best-trained combat warriors in the history of the world from carrying guns on military bases, the abject oath-violating infringements of our constitutionally guaranteed right to keep and bear arms across the country, the jackbooted thuggery of various government agencies abusing power and violating U.S. citizens’ civil rights, allowing rules of engagement for our military heroes that actually benefit our enemies, the horror of a VA that not only fails to provide adequate aid and treatment for our hero warriors but actually looks the other way when soulless bureaucrats cause their death, agreeing to Obama’s insane, wasteful, unaccountable budget that helps and benefits our enemies but does little to fortify America, the bizarre decision to release dangerous jihadists even when it is proven they return to combat and kill Americans, and assorted very Democratic modes of operation very unbecoming of traditional Republicans. And I could go on, but instead let me drive it home as clear and simple as possible – those of you who want to derail Donald Trump’s presidential campaign are guilty of the most egregious self-inflicted disconnect America has ever seen. Write this down: You’re not against Donald Trump; you’re against the will of the people, pure and simple. Let me be clear: I do not endorse Donald Trump, but the very reason Donald Trump and Ted Cruz are so popular is because they laugh in the face of your absurd and offensive status quo good ol’ boy GOP establishment crap. You talk and talk and talk about reigning back spending, but you do nothing. You talk about standing up for Second Amendment rights, but you do little or nothing. You talk about demanding accountability for Fast and Furious, but nothing happens. You talk and talk and talk about Lois Lerner’s IRS crimes, but you do nothing. You talk and talk and talk about taking care of our veterans, but you do little or nothing. You watch our failed education system waste more and more tax dollars while turning out the dumbest kids on Earth, and you do nothing. You watch the EPA abuse landowners and pollute rivers, but you do nothing. You know damn well Obama’s raw deal with Iran was the act of a madman, but you stand by as if you are helpless. You talk about halting the dangerous, America-destroying invasion of illegals across our borders, but you do nothing. You see the destruction of thriving big game herds across the West by out of control wolf numbers, and you do nothing. You sit back and watch the president side with criminal thugs instead of our law enforcement heroes, but you do nothing. You see out-of-control populations of non-indigenous wild horses destroying native wildlife and habitat, but you do nothing. Enter status quo busting we-the-people warriors who gain unprecedented support of we the people, and you attack and condemn them. When you attack and condemn Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, you are attacking and condemning the common sense and voice of we the people. You sound and act like you are that dumb, but I’m here to help. Don’t be so damn dumb. Get your head out of your status quo posterior and review the short list of your failings above. When you are ready to admit that your GOP has become indistinguishable from the crazed Democrats, then we can talk. Until then, shut up and pay attention. You might learn something.

America Is Under Attack by Weather and Earthquake Weapons

There is a very strong possibility that the United States is under attack from forces using weather modification technology and earthquake producing capabilities. To many in the Independent Media this is anything but an outlandish claim. To many Americans, who are just beginning to realize how often and how severely we are being lied to, this is a claim being made by someone who should be wearing a tinfoil hat. This article is divided into two parts. First, a cursory examination will be offered with regard to the viability owarsf the existence of weather modification and earthquake producing weapons. Secondly, an offering of the present use of these technologies presently being employed against the United States, will be presented as well. Weather and Earthquake Technology Primer I grew up in Denver and in the 1970’s it was widely reported in the media that the state was cloud-seeding as a means to increase snow fall at ski resorts, thus enhancing tourism. The endeavor was successful. Despite the fact that this technology is 60 years old, people simply do not want to believe it. In Arizona, one can buy a permit for “weather modification” from the Secretary of State’s Office. The government will deny a permit to yours truly, but we are soon going to test and videotape the process. Those who doubt that Katrina, or any other hurricane, could be stopped—or created—can find substantiation in a long-forgotten article by Chen May Yee in the Nov. 13, 1997, lke weapons issue of The Wall Street Journal where this was clearly discussed in the article. On Oct. 2, 1992, The Wall Street Journal reported that a Russian company, Elate Intelligent Technologies, Inc., has weather control equipment for sale and uses the advertising slogan of “weather made to order.” Igor Pirogoff, director of the company, said “Elate is capable of fine-tuning weather patterns over a 200-squaremile area for as little as $200 U.S. per day,” the newspaper reported. The article recounts an offer by the Russians to aid Malaysia to create a typhoon to dissipate a pall of smoke that hung over the country, and still does, caused by the burning of large sections of the rain forests in Indonesia and Sumatra. To quote from the article: Datuk Law Hieng Ding, Malaysia’s minister for science, technology and the environment at the time, said his country “would use special technology to create an artificial cyclone to clean the air.” In short, the technology exists, it is sophisticated and it has existed for a long time. Below is the Air Force’s position on this topic in which it is clearly admitted that the Air Force has had the ability to initiate earthquakes. Here is a partial abstract related to the fact that the Air Force has had the ability to harness the ability to destroy targets and geographic areas through what is loosely called weather wars technology and earthquake weaponry, and they have claimed to have had this ability since the 1990’s. II. Abstract from Air Force Owning the Weather 2025 TECHNOLOGY ABSTRACT This technology abstract is a submittal by the general public. The views expressed in this abstract are strictly those of the author and do not reflect the official policy, position, or programs of the United States Air Force, Department of Defense, or the United States Government. DISTRIBUTION A. Approved for public release; distribution unlimited. Document ID: 800062 Technology Abstract Title: Earthquake Weapon Description: Ultrasonic or acoustic weapon to destroy runways, buildings, bridges. Weapon will generate a very strong acoustic wave that causes structures to resonate, and thereby destroy them. This has the advantage of being a destructive force that is not designed to kill people. Advantages: Destructive to structures and war making potential, but does not directly threaten people. Challenges: How to generate a strong enough acoustic field. Countermeasures: Acoustic wave cancellation methods (generate a wave out of phase with the weapon) standard earthquake protection methods, such as flexible structures, truss designs, reinforced materials. Positive Counter Measures Attacking hardened, hidden structures. Airfield interdiction (destroy runways) Civilian application: demolition. Louisiana Is Closed for Business-Military Deployed In New Orleans, if you drive faster than 5 mph over standing water, the police are under orders to write you a ticket. Death and devastation are spreading throughout the states and the misery will soon reach throughout the central Midwest. There is one significant problem, the projected weather patterns are too uniform, to be viewed as a random collection of projected weather events. To one local meterologist, interviewed for this report, they were “troubled at the lack of randomness” associated with the storms and uniformity of progression over a large swath of land. Here’s where this gets very frightening. The projected massive storm, corresponds to reports of increased and highly flammable methane presence. The data points take an even more ominous turn when we consider that this corresponds, almost directly, with the New Madrid Fault. The convergence of extreme weather, combined with the possible EMP, excitation of key plate tectonics could produce the following effect. One confidential source revealed the following map would be the “zone of concentration”. Interestingly, it has happened before WITHOUT artificial stimulation. One can only imagine the devastation if this is an orchestrated event. Who needs nuclear bombs when weather and earthquake wars can produce such an event? The following was once a Navy-produced futuristic map in response to extreme weather wars and earthquake producing technology. The following is a nightmare image of what could transpire as a result of this extreme activity. The Mississippi River would reverse flow and the country would effectively be split in half. And this might be only the beginning of the attack that the United States finds itself under. Potential Earthquake Attacks Upon California On February 26, 2016, the Global Forecast System model recorded intense and wide-ranging carbon monoxide (CO) spike over the US West Coast. A region stretching from British Columbia, through Washington and Oregon, and on over most of California experienced CO readings ranging from about 5,000 parts per billion over the mountains of Southwestern Canada to as high as 40,000 parts per billion over Southern California. “Very high peak readings appear to have occurred from Northern California near Eureka CA., and along a line south and eastward over much of Central California to an extreme peak zone just north and west of Los Angeles near Palmdale.” When on reads the annotated bibliography and related research articles associated with Air Force Owning the Weather 2025, this is precisely the pattern of progression that one sees prior to suspected artificially caused earthquake. These quake pattern begins as a broad-spectrum and then reaches a narrow and concentrated focus in the intended target zone. This is what we are seeing in California. If I were to make an earthquake projection based upon the most recent data, I would place the primary quake zone from Palmdale west to the coast and then turning left and extending into Orange County. This could be a probe, a beta test, or it could the EMP exciting and movement of plate tectonics prior to massive earthquake. These kinds of earthquakes are always preceded with the release of CO and methane and this is exactly what we are witnessing in California. I also find it interesting that as well known as this technology is, I have been largely unsuccessful in getting “experts” to discuss the ramifications. The hesitation is not due to skepticism, but what I judge to be fear of the event and fear of criticism for acknowledging the potential event. As of this date, no major US or Canadian geological organization has yet made any report on this particularly large CO spike, which could result in the death of millions due to poison air being stagnated over population centers. “However, a piece of scientific research in Nature Asia, by K. S. Jayaraman notes that major CO and SO2 spikes may be an indication that future earthquake activity is on the way. According to Nature Magazine, this type of intense CO spike occurred prior to a 7.6 magnitude earthquake that shook Gujara in 2001 killing 20,000 people: Singh said that CO levels were taken by an instrument onboard NASA’s Terra satellite — launched in 2009 — circling the earth in a polar orbit at a height of 705 km. The instrument measures CO concentrations at different heights and also computes the total amount of the gas in a vertical column of air above the earth surface prior to an earthquake. Nightmare Scenario I have no credible proof at this time, however, if I were to attack the United States with this technology, I would exacerbate what is already going on in Yellowstone National Park. For years, I have followed the work of New York University theoretical physics professor, Michio Kaku, and his Superstring Theory related to the fact that we live in a multi-dimensional Universe. Since the passing of Carl Sagan, Dr. Kaku is wearing the hat of America’s most prominent scientist. It is safe to say that when Kaku speaks, scientists listen. And lately, he has been speaking about the threat that is the Yellowstone super volcano. Much to my chagrin, Kaku is on the record of having stated that the super volcano event at Yellowstone would be an extinction level event (ELE). In the following video, Kaku states that the volcano could erupt at anytime and the earth would no longer support life. Kaku went on to say that the United States would be covered in several feet of volcanic ash. The aerial debris would block out the sun, thus creating nuclear winter and all plant life would die. When all plant life dies, all mammals will soon die as well, mostly from starvation. Yellowstone erupts every 600,000 years and we are 40,000 years overdue. Kaku goes on to say that the Yellowstone explosion will undoubtedly be an ELE and it is not a matter of if, but a matter of when. In the accompanying video, Kaku speaks to the fact that the ground at Yellowstone has risen dramatically in the past few years, thus increasing the danger of a massive explosion. How much of a “nudge” would it take to push this whole scenario over the edge? Take a look at the initial projected ash cloud dispersion, immediately after the volcanic explosion. Is the Government Doing Anything About These Possibilities? There are massive troop movements going on across the country today. I have been sent no less than seven major transport train videos. I have chosen one to display, because the equipment on the train is telling. This is from a truck driver who describes and taping massive military equipment. The tape is made with a little too much very exuberance, but feel free to turn the sound down. Look at the equipment that caught on tape near Gallup, New Mexico. This tape was made on March 9, 2016. Did you catch the equipment that caught my eye? If one was transporting a train with bulldozers, wouldn’t that be the one piece of most important equipment that one would need in dealing with the changing New Madrid Fault? Conclusion California, Louisiana and possibly Yellowstone, what do they have in common? Any attack upon these areas in the manner in which I describe would destroy this nation, for good. We have fairly strong evidence that California is under attack. Louisiana is high suspect as to the progression of events in that state and if Yellowstone ever goes, it could become an extinction level event. Are weather and earthquake wars the wave of the future? The Air Force thinks so.

Flooding, evacuations and two drowned in the South as parts of Louisiana, Texas and Arkansas receive nearly a foot of rain

Flooding drove people from their homes in multiple states Wednesday

Flash-flood watches were issues from parts of Texas, to areas of Illinois

Several Louisiana parishes declared a state of emergency

Two men - one in Texas, one in southern Oklahoma - drowned

Tornadoes were also reported in Texas

By Associated Press Published: 20:43 EST, 9 March 2016 | Updated: 04:45 EST, 10 March 2016

Cars were submerged by water, residents forced to flee their homes with housecats and birds in tow, and the Louisiana National Guard and others rescued people by boat and in big military trucks as torrential rains Wednesday drenched parts of Louisiana, Texas and Arkansas with nearly a foot of rain. Two people drowned in Oklahoma and Texas, and the rain is expected to stay in the forecast for much of the week. Up to seven inches of rain was expected through Wednesday and up to a foot by the end of the weekend. Flash-flood watches were issued for areas from Port O'Connor, Texas, to near Springfield, In northwestern Louisiana up to 80 homes and a nursing home were evacuated. No injuries were reported. Sharon Anderson, her three children and four grandchildren were rescued from her south Bossier Parish mobile home after rising water threatened to trap them. Several other families had already been trapped, and the water was still rising, she said. 'This morning it was touching the bottom of the houses,' she said. 'Now the steps on my back porch are underwater and if you walk down the driveway, it's over the knee.' Anderson said they were pretty much surrounded by the water. The road into the area is flooded and another outlet that has a bridge is closed because of water. 'We're literally trapped,' Anderson said. 'You have to get a boat to get to our doors in this neighborhood.' Several Louisiana parishes have declared a state of emergency, and the National Guard was sent in Gov. John Bel Edwards issued the National Guard order after nearly a foot of rain fell Tuesday night and Wednesday. The governor's office says eight guardsmen and four high water vehicles will be used in Bossier Parish to assist where needed. The Louisiana National Guard transported Anderson's family and others from the neighborhood in a huge military truck later Wednesday. She said they planned to stay with family and in a hotel until the water receded. Bossier Parish Sheriff Julian Whittington said a mandatory evacuation is in place for several neighborhoods and subdivisions. Displaced residents can find shelter at the Bossier Civic Center. Meanwhile, Louisiana wildlife and fisheries enforcement agents have rescued more than three dozen people so far from flooded areas in Webster Parish. Louisiana State Police closed a section of Interstate 20 near Gibsland after both the eastbound and westbound lanes were covered with a foot of water, making the road impassible. Meteorologist Matthew Duplantis of the National Weather Service in Shreveport said Wednesday rain brought an additional two-to-four inches to the area. The system will also contain severe weather in the form of high winds and the possibility of isolated tornados. Northwestern State University's campuses in Natchitoches and Shreveport will be closed Thursday due to weather conditions, as are Bossier Parish public schools. Over southeast Louisiana, including the New Orleans metro area, forecasters say the slow-moving low pressure system is expected to bring a few rounds of heavy rainfall beginning Thursday morning and continuing through early Saturday. Rainfall totals could reach 10 inches in some areas and could result in some flooding. In rural southeastern Oklahoma, a 30-year-old man drowned Tuesday night after trying to drive his SUV across a low-crossing bridge that was covered by floodwaters. And in Texas, a 22-year-old man drowned Monday night after his canoe capsized in Dickinson Bayou, southeast of Houston near Galveston Bay. The flooding comes after recent severe thunderstorms raged across parts of Central and North Texas. A tornado struck a mobile home park in the North Texas town of Tolar on Monday morning, smashing some homes and injuring two people after two other tornadoes late Sunday injured two people in the North Texas towns of Stephenville and Cool. Associated Press reporters Chevel Johnson and Bill Fuller in New Orleans contributed to this report.

'New Morality' Movement Pushes Big to Silence Christians

3:00PM EST 3/3/2016 Paul Strand/CBN

Some say American Christians are paranoid, that they're feeling targeted and persecuted. But is it possible America is facing a growing anti-Christian agenda? Some on the frontline of the culture wars have responded with a resounding "yes." They feel it up close and personal – right in their faces. "I'm particularly sensitive to that because I'm Jewish," Brian Camenker, with Mass Resistance, told CBN News. "I saw what happened to Jews in the 1930s and '40s and much of that same thing is happening to Christians now," he said. "There's an organized movement to demonize Christians." Maggie Gallagher, with the American Principles Project, agreed. "What we're seeing very clearly is an effort to target them [Christians] legally when possible and then to humiliate or deprive them of social respect," she said. Much of this comes from abortion and gay rights groups and their supporters. "They see Christianity as refusing to affirm the things they wish to indulge in," said Peter Sprigg, senior fellow for policy studies at the Family Research Council. Both Sprigg and Rev. Bill Owens, with the Coalition of African-American Pastors, are frequent targets of gay rights groups. "They cannot accept any moral code that says what they do is wrong and in order to avoid any sort of guilt that might come upon them if anyone says that what they're doing is wrong, they want to eliminate that kind of communication from the culture altogether," Sprigg explained. Owens continued, "There's a strong agenda to silence Christians. You see it every day. You can't walk out of your house and not see something anti-Christian." Some say gay and transgender rights groups have carefully mimicked the Civil Rights movement. "They have copied that movement, studied it, dissected it, and they knew exactly what to do," Owens said. "And one of the things they had to do was silence the Christian community." These folks say one reason the gay rights movement co-opted the civil rights movement is that today's society see opponents of civil rights as narrow-minded, bigoted, and racist. They're hoping their opponents will be seen through the same lens and unfortunately, Christians are often these modern-day opponents." "If you disagree, you're a bigot and a hater and a racist, right? So you put that together and it's a pretty powerful agenda," Gallagher said. "I suspect it's a minority of the Left who actually believes it, but powerful organized minorities often drive culture and politics in different ways." "We often talk of this as a threat to religious liberty, and it is that," Sprigg said. "But if you really drill down, the religious liberty of Muslims, Jews and Hindus is not being attacked. It's the religious liberty of Christians." "And it's not over," Camenker warned. "I mean now that they have gay marriage, they're doing their push for these severe anti-discrimination laws to punish Christians who don't go along with the agenda." It's not that these folks just want moral neutrality. Their new laws push a new morality. "The Left's idea is that to be a good person you have to believe that the only thing in the world that cannot be changed is sexual orientation," Gallagher explained. "And the moral message they send is that it is morally wrong to disapprove of homosexual conduct. It is morally wrong to disapprove of transgender conduct," Sprigg added. "That two men in a loving union are just the same as a husband and wife, that children do not need mothers and fathers, that the ability to create new life is not significant enough to build a social institution around," Gallagher said. "They perceive Christianity as being a source of oppression. That's partly because they don't understand Christianity. They don't understand that Christ came to set us free, not imprison us," Sprigg said. Last year's Supreme Court decision making gay marriage the law of the land super charges the legal efforts many Christians believe will increasingly demonize their biblical beliefs and them along with it. http://www.charismanews.com/us/55601-new-morality-movement-pushes-big-to-silence-christians

Errant, not transparent: Docs reveal Obama admin. tried to ‘kill transparency’ – advocacy group

Published time: 10 Mar, 2016 02:54

President Barack Obama has touted his administration as the “most transparent ever,” but the Freedom of the Press Foundation says documents released under a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit show an effort to “kill transparency.” The non-profit Freedom of the Press Foundation sued the Department of Justice (DOJ) for documents detailing its correspondence with Congress regarding the reform of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) that failed to pass Congress last year despite strong support from legislators. The lawsuit itself was filed in compliance with the FOIA, a law enacted to improve openness in government. In 2014, the FOIA Oversight and Implementation Act (FOIA Act) sought to make receiving information faster and easier. The FOIA Act breezed through the House of Representatives with unanimous support, and a similar bill, The Freedom of Information Improvements Act, was passed by the Senate. However, the legislation failed in Congress after members failed to reconcile the differences between the two bills. With both bills receiving bipartisan support, it seemed odd for them to die on the vine. The Senate version was modeled after the DOJ’s own policy of transparency set in 2009 by a memo from Attorney General Eric Holder. “[T]he Department of Justice will defend a denial of a FOIA request only if (1) the agency reasonably foresees that disclosure would harm an interest protected by one of the statutory exemptions, or (2) disclosure is prohibited by law,” the 2009 Holder memo read. However, the Freedom of the Press Foundation published a memo from the DOJ showing that it had lobbied against almost all aspects of the bills – despite the fact that its own guidelines were the basis for one. The DOJ, speaking on behalf of the entire Obama administration, wrote “The Administration strongly opposes passage of [the FOIA Act].” Specifically, the DOJ’s talking points against similar provisions in the FOIA reform bills run counter to the part of Holder’s 2009 memo stating that when “disclosure would [do] harm,” the DOJ would defend its decision to deny a FOIA request in court. In the 2014 memo from the DOJ, the first major concern surrounds “foreseeable harm,” but the concern this time was that the language had been included in the legislation at all, because it opened up the DOJ to more potential lawsuits, in which the “forseeable harm” case would have to be made to a judge. “This addition would vastly increase FOIA litigation and would undermine the policy behind each of the existing exemptions,” the 2014 memo read. Ironically, this memo was only released following three months of lawsuits from the Freedom of the Press Foundation. The 2014 memo goes on to say that including foreseeable harm would “require judges to determine, on a document-by-document basis, whether disclosure of a record protected by an exemption would cause ‘identifiable harm,’” meaning, a judge would determine whether or not the administration’s claims of foreseeable harm were true – much like what a judge does in any other case. Efforts to expedite requests through a singular website were also met with resistance from the DOJ, despite the fact that “the Administration believes that it is beneficial to study the feasibility of establishing a single website for the making of FOIA requests… and has already committed to doing so.” Despite the administration’s stated intention to create such a site, the memo concluded that it “would be counterproductive to mandate establishment of a pilot program, with required participation by multiple agencies.” Obama started off his presidency by instructing all federal agencies to operate under the “presumption of openness,” but five years later, his administration lobbied to keep the public in the dark.

Freightliner to lay off 1,250 employees in Mt. Holly, Cleveland

by: Mark Becker Updated: Feb 15, 2016 - 4:53 PM

GASTON COUNTY, N.C. — Workers at Daimler’s truck manufacturing plants in Mount Holly and Cleveland, North Carolina, said they were told Monday morning that the company is cutting hundreds of jobs at each plant at the end of the week. Daimler has taken over the plants that were run by Freightliner in Rowan and Gaston counties, and workers at the plant in Cleveland told Eyewitness News the announcement of job cuts came as a shock to many. “I know that I'm one of the ones that's going to be laid off, so it's going to affect me,” said Andre Tucker, who began working at the plant in May 2014. Tucker said he expects that Friday will be his last day on the job, but that the company is offering to pay the employees who lose their jobs through the middle of April. “Right now probably the biggest thing is to figure out the next step as far as trying to find a new job,” Tucker, who has a wife and two children, said. Daimler confirmed the job cuts late Monday, saying that 700 jobs would be cut in Mount Holly and 550 in Cleveland, due to a reduction in orders for their trucks. The company told workers about the cuts in a series of town hall meetings. Jamall Cuthbertson, who has worked in the plant in Cleveland for about 20 years, said it was a tough day. “Just some sad people this morning. It's just terrible right now,” he said. The pain reaches far past the company’s fence. Daimler is one of the biggest employers in Rowan County and laid off almost 900 employees in January. You don’t have to go any farther than the convenience store across the highway to find the impact of the layoffs. “Everybody around here's been hurting, and it's going to hurt even more,” said Bibi Bacchus, who runs the register there. The local United Way held a workshop and job fair for employees laid off in January, and may have to repeat it for this round of workers. But the man who heads up economic development in Rowan County says the job picture is still bright. “We are starting to diversify and we do have a number of employers across sectors that are looking to add people,” Robert Van Geons said. Read the statement from Daimler Trucks: Pursuant to the notification requirements of the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act of 1988 ("WARN"), Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) has announced that it will implement a reduction in force of approximately 700 employees at its Mt. Holly Truck Manufacturing Plant and approximately 550 employees at its Cleveland Truck Manufacturing Plant, effective April 16, 2016. Employees at the Mt. Holly and Cleveland plants were notified in Town Hall meetings yesterday and today. The last day of work for employees affected by this announcement will be Friday, February 19, 2016 in both facilities. Impacted employees will receive payment in lieu of the notice period at each employee's regular rate of pay, and employees are free to seek and accept other employment during the notice period without jeopardizing their entitlement to the WARN period payment or benefits. As of February 22, the workforce at the Mt. Holly Truck Manufacturing Plant will be reduced from approximately 2,150 to approximately 1,450 employees, with plant operations scaled back to two full shifts per day. The workforce at the Cleveland Truck Manufacturing Plant will be reduced from approximately 2,150 to approximately 1,600, with plant production scheduled at one full shift per day. The Cleveland reduction in force is in addition to a previous workforce adjustment announced in January affecting approximately 936 employees at the Cleveland Truck Manufacturing Plant, effective March 5, 2016. These workforce adjustments are in response to a sustained reduction in orders and a diminished build rate, and are expected to be temporary, based on future market developments. 2015 was an extraordinarily strong market for trucks in NAFTA. DTNA anticipates the North American truck market Class 6 to 8 to be down around minus 10 percent in 2016. This is still expected to be above the 2014 Class 6 to 8 market. The Mt. Holly Truck Manufacturing Plant is located in Mt. Holly, North Carolina and manufactures medium-duty Freightliner trucks. The Cleveland Truck Manufacturing Plant is located in Cleveland, North Carolina and manufactures heavy-duty Freightliner and Western Star trucks. The company has no further comment pertaining to the announcement.

Fox News Reports Marco Rubio To Suspend Campaign

But Ted Cruz better not Tweet the link. Truth Revolt | Caleb Howe - March 10, 2016

Charles Gasparino @CGasparino Top @marcorubio donors say barring a positive poll, the Senator will suspend his campaign prior to the Fla primary.

11:59 AM - 9 Mar 2016

The latest in the ongoing “Will he or won’t he?” drama has Fox News reporting today that his big donors are pressuring Marco Rubio to drop out of the race immediately — as in, before the Florida primary. When CNN aired a similar report two days ago, the drama was high as Rubio’s Communications Manager stormed CNN to set the record straight that his candidate was not even entertaining the notion. Then three hours ago, Fox News aired a very similar report. Earlier today, CBS did the same. When CNN’s report came out, the Cruz campaign was pilloried by Rubio supporters claiming that they were playing dirty by referencing the news report from the major network. Will Cruz take the blame for these two new reports as well? Either way, the Rubio camp is still flatly denying the reports.

Why This Recent Piece of ISIS Intelligence Stands Out

Mark Thompson @MarkThompson_DC March 13, 2016

An ISIS membership list eclipses the capture of its "Chemical Ali"

Two bonanzas surfaced in the war against the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) last week, although placing them in proper perspective proved daunting. You wouldn’t have gleaned any insight at Friday’s Pentagon press briefing, where Baghdad-based Army Colonel Steve Warren handled multiple questions via video conference about ISIS’s chemical weapons. But he didn’t get a single one on the list of 22,000 ISIS members that fell into the hands of the anti-ISIS coalition led by the U.S. The revelation that U.S. commandos snared ISIS’s chemical-weapons chief was important, but it pales alongside the flash drive containing a roster of ISIS agents a disgruntled militant handed over to Britain’s Sky News. Other news organizations in Europe received similar data, and U.S. officials say it’s already being shared with Western intelligence agencies. Each episode, in its own way, suggests progress in the 20-month U.S.-lead war on the the group. The capture of Iraqi Sleiman Daoud al-Afari transformed him into the 21st century’s version of “Chemical Ali.” The original was a Saddam Hussein general who earned the moniker for killing thousands of Kurds with mustard gas, sarin, tabun and VX in the 1980s and 1990s (the original “Chemical Ali,” Ali Hassan Abd al-Majid al-Tikriti, was hanged in 2010). Afari’s seizure by U.S. Army Delta Force commandos has led to air strikes on a pair of alleged mustard-gas stockpiles he purportedly identified near Mosul, Iraq’s second-largest city, and one that ISIS has held for nearly two years. Both Iraq and Syria have had mustard gas in their arsenals in the past. U.S. forces feared such chemical weapons during the 2003 invasion of Iraq, and trained in heavy and cumbersome suits to limit their exposure. But the only U.S. casualties resulting from Iraq’s chemical weapons happened when U.S. troops stumbled upon abandoned stockpiles. Mustard gas, while potent, killed only 5% of the troops exposed to it during World War I. In fact chemical weapons, despite their horror (a reported Saturday attack near the northern Iraq city of Kirkuk killed a 3-year-old girl and wounded 600), make lousy weapons of war. Logistically, they’re difficult to transport and deploy, and an unexpected wind can render them impotent, or even dangerous to the attacker using them. “It’s not a high threat. We’re not, frankly, losing too much sleep over it,” Warren said Friday. “It’s a fairly relatively ineffective as a weapon, though, because it’s very non-persistent, so you drop it, it goes up, disappears.” The good news associated with Afari’s capture was that it was carried out by what the Pentagon calls its “Expeditionary Targeting Force,” a pair of 50-man special-ops units dispatched to the region in December with the express mission of killing or capturing ISIS leaders (the bad news was that it took the Pentagon 17 months after the war on ISIS began to send it into action). But the more important revelation was the flash drive naming up to 22,000 ISIS members from 51 nations, complete with their answers to 23 survey questions (including blood type, date and place of birth, mother’s maiden name, knowledge of sharia and experience). The list goes a long way to ripping the mask off of foreign ISIS fighters who had hope to return home to carry out terror attacks. Sky News’ source reportedly stole the flash drive from the leader of ISIS’s internal police. That source, who calls himself “Abu Hamed,” is reportedly a one-time Free Syrian Army fighter who bolted to the Islamic State. But he became embittered, saying that ISIS’s original Islamic goals have been pushed aside by former Baath Party troops who once fought for Saddam Hussein. His theft—German officials have said they believe the roster is authentic—signals that months of air strikes are helping to grind ISIS down and leading to fissures within its ranks. While the list dates from 2013—and some of its names are already known to the U.S. and other nations fighting ISIS—the betrayal it represents is of far more consequence than any particulars, or the capture of any chemical agent.

Egyptian Teens Convicted of Blasphemy for Video Mocking ISIS

by F. Brinley Bruton Mar 14 2016, 8:46 am ET

A leading rights group on Monday called on Egyptian authorities to quash blasphemy sentences handed down to four teens and their teacher for a video they made mocking ISIS. An Egyptian court convicted the four Christian teenagers for contempt of Islam on February 25 after they appeared in the video appearing to make fun of Muslim prayers, according to The Associated Press. Three were sentenced to between three and five years in prison while a fourth was referred to a juvenile detention facility, the news agency added. Human Rights Watch said Monday that "these children shouldn't face prison for expressing themselves, even with an immature joke" and urged Egypt to protect free speech "instead of giving in to retrograde views" about blasphemy. "Mocking ISIS, or any religious group, with a childish joke is not a crime," Nadim Houry, deputy Middle East director at Human Rights Watch, said in a statement. The teens were not present at their sentencing and have yet to turn themselves in or be apprehended, the group said. It named the four as Mueller Edward, 17; Bassem Hanna, 16; Alber Ashraf, 16; and Clinton Yousef, 17. Their teacher, Gad Yousef Younan, was sentenced to three years in a separate trial.

Trump claims man who tried to rush stage at Ohio rally connected to ISIS

By Tribune news services Contact Reporter March 12, 2016 9:04 pm Vandalia, Ohio

Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump is claiming that the man who tried to rush the stage at his Ohio rally Saturday morning is connected to Islamic State militants — an allegation Middle East experts dismiss as farcical. Trump was mid-speech at a rally at an airport near Dayton when a man, later identified by authorities as Thomas Dimassimo of Fairborn, Ohio, jumped a barricade and rushed at Trump. Video from the rally shows Dimassimo was able to touch the stage before security officials tackled him. Trump campaign spokeswoman Hope Hicks said a man had attempted attempted "to breach the secure buffer." He was removed "rapidly and professionally," she said in a statement. Matt Miller, a Trump supporter who owns a body shop in Dayton, said he was standing near the podium when the agents took to the stage to protect Trump. "We just saw a kid that tried to rush the stage. The Secret Service tackled him right away," Miller said. Speaking at a rally later Saturday in St. Louis, Trump told the crowd about the incident and said that, after learning the man's name, one of his "Internet people" discovered something shocking: alleged evidence that linked Dimassimo to Islamic State militants. "It was probably ISIS or ISIS-related. Do you believe it?" Trump asked the crowd. He said that an online search had revealed "the guy is playing all sorts of, let's say music that you wouldn't be liking, dragging an American flag along the sidewalk, making all sorts of gestures, having all sorts of things on the Internet. And he's probably or possibly ISIS-related." Trump appeared to be referring to a video, which was posted on his official Twitter account, that shows student protesters stepping on American flags, declaring, "Black Live Matters" and talking to reporters while religious music plays. It appears to be an edited version of a video posted on YouTube in April 2015 captioned, "Students at Wright State University #NotMyFlag protest. The protest occurred to stand in solidarity with the symbolic actions of Eric Sheppard." The original does not include the religious soundtrack. Hassan Hassan, the co-author of the book "ISIS: Inside the Army of Terror," says the video is "definitely not an ISIS video" based on its content. "This is utterly farcical; the video is incontrovertibly fake and Trump's accusations about it being linked to ISIS serve only to underline the totality of his ignorance on this issue," said Charles Lister, a fellow at the Middle East Institute. Lister noted the video contains a long list of elements that a jihadi video would never include, among them countless uncovered women, men in shorts and tank tops, and a man holding arms with a woman. "Nobody can deny that ISIS poses a threat to U.S. national security, but giving credence to such ridiculous claims is arguably even more dangerous," Lister said.

North Korea claims it could wipe out Manhattan with a hydrogen bomb

By Anna Fifield The Washington Post March 13, 2016

North Korea claimed Sunday that it could wipe out Manhattan by sending a hydrogen bomb on a ballistic missile to the heart of New York, the latest in a string of brazen threats. Although there are many reasons to believe that Kim Jong Un's regime is exaggerating its technical capabilities, the near-daily drumbeat of boasts and warnings from Pyongyang underlines the regime's anger at efforts to thwart its ambitions. "Our hydrogen bomb is much bigger than the one developed by the Soviet Union," DPRK Today, a state-run outlet that uses the official acronym for North Korea, reported Sunday. "If this H-bomb were to be mounted on an inter-continental ballistic missile and fall on Manhattan in New York City, all the people there would be killed immediately and the city would burn down to ashes," the report said, citing a nuclear scientist named Cho Hyong Il. The website is a strange choice for issuing such a proclamation, given that it also carried reports about rabbit farming and domestically made school backpacks. North Korea's newly developed hydrogen bomb "surpasses our imagination," Cho is quoted as saying, because it is many times as powerful as anything the Soviet Union had. "The H-bomb developed by the Soviet Union in the past was able to smash windows of buildings 1,000 kms away and the heat was strong enough to cause third-degree burns 100 kms away," the report continued. Kim in January ordered North Korea's fourth nuclear test and claimed that it was a hydrogen bomb, not a simple atomic one. But most experts are skeptical of the claim, saying the seismic waves caused by the blast were similar to those caused by the North's three previous tests. Then in February, Kim oversaw the launch of what North Korea said was a rocket that put a satellite into orbit but that is widely considered part of a long-range ballistic missile program. North Korea has made advances in its inter-continental ballistic missile program, and experts generally conclude that the United States' West Coast might now be in reach but that there has been no suggestion that the North would be able to hit the East Coast. Many experts are also skeptical of the "miniaturized warhead" that Kim showed off last week during a visit to a nuclear weapons plant, saying it doesn't look right. But Jeffrey Lewis, director of the East Asia nonproliferation program at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey, warned against dismissing it too soon. "It does not look like U.S. devices, to be sure, but it is hard to know if aspects of the model are truly implausible or simply that North Korean nuclear weapons look different than their Soviet and American cousins," Lewis wrote in an analysis for 38 North, a website devoted to North Korea. "The size, however, is consistent with my expectations for North Korea." As international condemnation of the North's acts mounted, culminating in the toughest U.N. sanctions against Pyongyang yet, Kim's regime has become increasingly belligerent, firing missiles into the Sea of Japan, also known as the East Sea, and issuing a new threat or denunciation almost every day. The sanctions coincide with annual spring drills between the U.S. and South Korean militaries, which Pyongyang considers a rehearsal for an invasion. The current exercises are particularly antagonistic because special forces are practicing "decapitation strikes" on regime leaders and taking out nuclear and missile sites. On Friday, North Korea's state media reported that Kim had ordered more nuclear tests, while the North's Korean People's Army warned in a statement Saturday that it would counter the drills by "liberat[ing] the whole of South Korea including Seoul ... with an ultra-precision blitzkrieg strike of the Korean style." South Korea's Defense Ministry urged Pyongyang to stop its threats and provocations. "If the North continues to make provocations despite the stern warnings made by our military, it is inevitable for us to roll out a strict response that may lead to the destruction of the Pyongyang regime," South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a statement, according to the Yonhap News Agency.

Ivory Coast gunmen who killed 16 had sights set on Obama official, source says

A deadly attack on a popular Ivory Coast beach resort Sunday that killed at least 16 most likely targeted a U.S. delegation led by the assistant commerce secretary, who was visiting the country, a diplomatic source in the region told Fox News. There was no indication any Americans had been killed or wounded in the attack, according to the source. Assistant Secretary of Commerce Marcus Jadotte was leading a group of Americans in Grand-Bassam, including college recruiters from the University of Florida. U.S. embassy officials from the capital city of Abidjan were also included in the group, according to the source. The delegation was supposed to arrive at the scene of the attack, Etoile du Sud, a hotel popular with Westerners. The delegation had not yet made it to the hotel when the attack occurred. A jihadist group called Ansar Dine, or "defenders of the faith," which is linked to Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, was suspected of the attack, the source said. Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb later claimed responsibility for the attack, according to a Jihad monitoring website cited by the Associated Press. The US Embassy in Ivory Coast had instructed all Americans to "shelter in place" following the attack. The U.S. ambassador to the Ivory Coast was not in the country at the time of the attack, having left to attend a conference in Washington led by Secretary of State John Kerry. But the deadly attack did leave 14 civilians and two special forces soldiers dead, as well as all six attackers, President Alassane Ouattara said, according to Reuters. The attackers, who were "heavily armed and wearing balaclavas, fired at guests at the Etoile du Sud, a large hotel which was full of expats in the current heatwave," a witness told AFP. Marcel Guy said he saw at least four gunmen with Kalashnikov rifles on the beach. He said one approached two children, and spoke in Arabic. One child knelt and prayed, the other child was shot dead. "I was swimming when it started and I ran away," said Dramane Kima, who showed video of the carnage to Reuters. He also took pictures of grenades and ammunition clips he believed were left behind by the gunmen. Jacques Able, who identified himself as the owner of Etoile du Sud said one person had been killed at the hotel. A receptionist at Etoile du Sud hotel said the attacks happened on the beach. "We don't know where they came from, and we don't know where they've gone," he said of the gunmen. etc. and the news story continues..

At Least 34 Dead, 125 Wounded in Car Bombing in Turkish Capital

Explosion occurs weeks after car bomb attack in Ankara killed 29; Ankara court orders ban on Facebook, Twitter after images from blast were shared; Netanyahu condemns attacks, expresses solidarity with Turkish people.

At least 34 people were killed and another 125 were wounded in a suicide car bombing in the Turkish capital of Ankara on Sunday evening. At least one or two of the casualties were the perpetrators of the attack, Turkey's health minister said. He added that 125 people were being treated at hospitals, and that 19 of the wounded were in serious condition. Attacks like the car bombing in Ankara will only bolster Turkey's resolve in fighting terrorism and it will never give up the right to defend itself, President Tayyip Erdogan said on Sunday. In a statement hours after the car bombing, Erdogan said terrorist organizations were targeting civilians because they were losing their struggle against the security forces.

From Ferguson to Chicago

Left-wing fascists go for Donald Trump.

March 14, 2016 Matthew Vadum

The riot planned and executed by the Left at the canceled Donald Trump campaign rally in Chicago on Friday was just the latest in a long series of mob disturbances manufactured by radicals to advance their political agendas. Even so, it is a particularly poisonous assault on the American body politic that imperils the nation's most important free institution – the ballot. "The meticulously orchestrated #Chicago assault on our free election process is as unAmerican as it gets," tweeted actor James Woods. "It is a dangerous precedent." This so-called protest, and the disruptions at subsequent Trump events over the weekend, were not spontaneous, organic demonstrations. The usual culprits were involved behind the scenes. The George Soros-funded organizers of the riot at the University of Illinois at Chicago relied on the same fascistic tactics the Left has been perfecting for decades – including claiming to be peaceful and pro-democracy even as they use violence to disrupt the democratic process. Activists associated with MoveOn, Black Lives Matter, and Occupy Wall Street, all of which have been embraced by Democrats and funded by radical speculator George Soros, participated in shutting down the Trump campaign event. Soros recently also launched a $15 million voter-mobilization effort against Trump in Colorado, Florida, and Nevada through a new super PAC called Immigrant Voters Win. The title is a characteristic misdirection since Trump supports immigration that is legal. It’s the invasion of illegals who have not been vetted and are filling America’s welfare rolls and jails that is the problem. Among the extremist groups involved in disrupting the Trump rally in Chicago were the revolutionary communist organization ANSWER (Act Now to Stop War and End Racism), National Council of La Raza (“the Race”), and the Illinois Coalition of Immigrant and Rights Reform. President Obama's unrepentant terrorist collaborator Bill Ayers, who was one of the leaders of Days of Rage the precursor riot at the Democratic convention in Chicago in 1968, also showed up to stir the pot. The goal was to help reinforce the media narrative that Trump is a dangerous authoritarian figure who needs to be stopped now before he upsets too many people and proclaims himself emperor, or some fevered fantasy like that. The organized rioters who showed up at UIC to taunt and bait Trump supporters, hoped to generate compelling TV clips that could be used to attack the Republican front-runner. The people who infiltrated the Trump rally and attacked his supporters weren't mere protesters and were not nonviolent. By now, after decades of getting away with lawlessness and mayhem, nonviolent left-wing protesters are as rare as four-leaf clovers. They are violent agitators, trained in Alinsky-style disruption, aiming to shut Trump and his supporters down by any means they can get away with. These modern-day brownshirts use force and the threat of force to harass and intimidate, and to provoke people who have come to a peaceful assembly to hear their candidate speak. "Many of these people come from Bernie [Sanders]," Trump said, pointing out how since the 1968 riot at the Democratic convention street radicals and party radicals have become a seamless force. On "Face the Nation" Trump called them "professional disrupters" a polite name for incipient fascists. Since the liberal media was already blaming him for the anti-Trump thuggery, he told them, "I don't accept responsibility," Trump said on Sunday TV. "I do not condone violence in any shape." In speeches since Friday Trump regularly invokes Bernie Sanders when an activist disrupts. He calls them "Bernie's people." At one stop, Trump said, "Get 'em out. Hey Bernie, get your people in line." Although Sanders supporters are well-represented among the anti-Trump thugs, the self-described socialist senator from Vermont denied the charge. But Bernie’s campaign is so focused on demonizing the rich and blaming them for America’s problems, the hatred he is retailing can reasonably be called an incitement to those who buy his propaganda and support him. Sanders after all is a lifetime admirer of Communist states like the Soviet Union and Cuba where this kind of thuggery is a political norm. So even if he’s telling the truth and did give the orders to his followers to be there, he’s lying. They came because they hate rich people too. Major organizations of the left who are backing Sanders, like Moveon.org openly bragged about trampling on Trump's free speech rights in Chicago, and promised more of it.

Anti-Trump MOB FOR HIRE Ad In Chicago Craigslist Days Before Violent Protest - Man Who Attacked Trump Made Short Film Calling For Killings Of Whites And Is An 'Actor' With An IMDb Page Dating Back To 2004

March 13, 2016 By Stefan Stanford - All News Pipeline - Live Free Or Die

A September 2015 story from the nation of Pakistan can offer America a stern warning about what is happening here now in America in 2016 and what may be coming 'en masse' to America this Summer. Called "Investigating Pakistan's 'Mobs For Hire'", we learn that to outsiders it can often look like 'mob rule' in Pakistan with frequent attacks and lynchings of religious minorities that go unarrested and unpunished. However, we also learn in the same story that what seems like 'mob rule' to the untrained eye is something else entirely; highly profitable organized businesses are running and renting out mobs where 'anything is available at the right price'. We're also told that police are powerless to do anything against these 'mobs for hire' and the businesses running them since a 'parallel system of governance' has been formed and police are prevented from doing their jobs, with arrests often met by threats against their jobs or the lives of the officers themselves. Social unrest is also on the rise in Pakistan with Islamic radicalism a very real threat to the lives of every minority in the country as society fails and the poor and unemployed happily taking paid roles to disturb the peace, lynch, murder and do whatever else they're paid to do. Flash forward to 2016 America. Back in the beginning of January 2016, a very strange anti-Donald Trump ad showed up on the Austin, Texas Craigslist looking for 'troublemakers'. Submitted by a Chicago producer with a 'professional reputation', the ad was taken down soon after Infowars, Investment Watch Blog and several other websites publicized the advertisement. Not surprisingly, a new ad has recently sprung up, another anti-Trump and anti-Conservatives Craigslist ad that, coincidentally or not, showed up in the Chicago Craigslist days prior to the huge violent protest that recently took down a Donald Trump rally. In fact, 'mobs for hire' are a very real phenomenon and big business in America and according to several we have visited online today, one can purchase a 'flash mob' for almost any occasion though this Forbes story tells us they are quite pricey. Could one purchase a mob for mass protests that might turn violent? We also see absolute proof here that there are paid positions for those who seek to become involved in these rebellions, quite an incentive for college students and others who are unable to obtain employment in this rapidly collapsing economy. While Grassroots Campaigns has not yet returned a phone call to ANP requesting more information about them or if they were involved in what recently happened in Chicago or Dayton, Ohio, we've gotten more proof that the person who was arrested for charging the stage when Trump was speaking in Dayton is bad news as seen in the screenshot above and video directly below, a short movie which he wrote and directed. Tommy DiMassimo also has an IMDb page....yes, he is an actor. The video below is the trailer for a movie he wrote called "Red, Black and Blue" in which he plays the role of 'killer cop'. DiMassimo was released on $300 bond. Keep in mind, DiMassimo wrote this movie. Calling for violence against whites, is this video more proof that things could get very bad very quickly? Should DiMassimo have even been released back upon the streets? While I have long advocated protest against injustice, I have always condemned violent protest as it only serves as a tool to those who'd like to think of themselves as our 'masters', the New World Order globalists. Ever the tool of the globalists and specifically George Soros and his 'color revolutions' that have taken place around the world, we now have more proof that these 'rebellions' are being organized and designed by the very elitists themselves that the 'rebellion' seeks to 'rebel against'. With the NWO globalists staging this rebellion against order, liberty and America in their last ditch effort to overthrow America before a president who would put America first is WILLED into office by the American people, we see that the 'Summer of 2016' will likely go down in the history books as the year 'absolute corruption' will do anything possible to hold onto their power and control, including race war and martial law with no elections. In the videos below we take a look at what's now happening from several different angles including the 1st video which tells us of the Neocons panic over a potential Trump presidency that could be the final nail in the coffin of the 'new world order' from Gary Franchi at the Next News Network. In the 2nd video below, we see from Infowars what the mainstream media refuses to publish that is now happening at Donald Trump rallies as Americans of all nationalities, colors and political backgrounds are coming together for the good of the country and humanity. In the 3rd video below, also from Infowars, we learn why Barack Obama has become the 'divide and conquer' president and what might be coming next. Here is the original Craigslist ad mentioned above seeking 'troublemakers' from those who dislike Trump. The link below is no longer good after having been deleted once Infowars and other websites exposed this. You can also see the most recent ad from Grassroots Campaigns as well as a list of their clients, including Barack Obama and Joe Biden, below videos. http://austin.craigslist.org/cpg/5383376820.html  They’re up to no good! if (a) the thought of humiliating D.T. on an international stage appeals to you and, (b) being part of the anonymous team of talented and creative anti T. enthusiasts who perpetrate the (in no way violent or injurious) stunt that if properly executed will fulfill that goal and, most importantly (c), in addition to all of that you are very well versed in Photoshop, After Effects, any 3D modeling tools, HTML, web design, copywriting or any combination thereof… I’d love to hear from you sooner than later.

In 2011, Zibigniew Brzezinski lamented that the people were waking up to the tyranny that he and his fellow globalists were perpetrating upon humanity. At the time, I thought that the following Brzezinski quote was alarmist and not based on fact. " It used to be so much easier to control a million people than to kill them, but today it is infinitely easier to kill one million people than to control them!" So long as the global elite controlled 95% of the media, courtesy of Bill Clinton deregulation, I did not believe that the Independent Media had any chance to wake up the slumbering masses. Collectively, the mass media produced a condition called “group think”. In large part, the American people have been conquered through the principle of group think. Throughout history, group think has played a prominent role in coercing the public of any nation into going to war for the benefit of the elite ruling class and their financial bottom line. Group think is a term coined by social psychologist Irving Janis in 1972, and it occurs when a group makes faulty decisions because group pressures lead to a deterioration of “mental efficiency, reality testing, and moral judgment”. Groups affected by group think ignore alternatives and tend to take irrational actions that dehumanize other groups. A group is especially vulnerable to group think (e.g. reducing people to a “conspiracy theorist” status) when someone is accusing the government of wrong-doing. Group think gets an individual to unquestionably accept the will of the elite as represented by the Main Stream Media. It is the psychological phenomenon which explains the incredulous idea that there is no such thing as a conspiracy theory as if two bad people would never get together and plan to do something bad. The phenomenon results in this…. “Yes we can sacrifice liberty for security. And there is no such thing as a conspiracy.” Self-appointed ‘mindguards’ becomes a key operating component of the group. Members protect the group and the leader from information that is problematic or contradictory to the group’s cohesiveness, view, and/or decisions. This is the central operating principle of the maintenance of group think. Any dissension inside the group is quickly dealt with as if the dissenter were a member of the group of which their group is aligned against (George W. Bush’s proclamation of .. This is the role of Fox, CNN and the rest of the MSM and it results in this…. “Yes we can go to war, die for the corporations, sacrifice our kids future an believe that free trade agreements like the TPP, NAFTA, CAFTA and how America got the SHAFTA, are good. This paradigm of group think as delivered trough the MSM was getting Americans to literally and figuratively commit suicide. And amazingly, through group think, many Americans would defend the practice and chastise who would dare point out the dangers. At least the paradigm was working until this man decided to get into politics. Almost nobody is paying attention to the MSM and their lies and attacks upon Donald Trump and they are in disbelief that they can longer control the majority of us. Throughout my academic career, I have immersed myself in discovering how change occurs. Why do some movements take hold and win the day, while others die on the vine? The answer, coming from the field of social psychology, is surprisingly simple. The flip side of group think also exists. The antidote to group think is more group think in the form of presenting a group think psychology that is the antithesis of the existing paradigm being perpetrated today “We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the public believes is false.” William Casey, former CIA Director Group Think vs. Confirmation Bias The social psychological term, confirmation bias, refers to the fact that the masses will believe even the biggest of lies, if they hear it often enough. Confirmation bias and group think work hand in hand to enslave Americans into believing in and accepting a self-destructive paradigm. Television MSM news has a filtering impact on the perception of reality. The psychological concept of confirmation bias means that when we hear a message often enough, we come to unquestionably accept the message as authentic and real. And the message is amazingly consistent because only six globalist corporate entities control over 90% of the media. CAN THE PEOPLE EVER BREAK FREE OF CONFIRMATION BIAS AND GROUP THINK? The short answer is a resounding yes and it is has already happened courtesy of Donald Trump. Below is a critical piece of psychological research which describes how this shift has already happened. The Ten Percent Factor When 10% of the people take hold of an idea, the idea spreads like wildfire. Scientists from the prestigious Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute have determined that if just 10% of any given population holds to an unshakable idea, that the idea will become adopted by the majority of the country. However, the scientists who belong to the Social Cognitive Networks Academic Research Center (SCNARC) found that if the ideas are shared by less than 10% of the population, the idea will not progress and will eventually die out. The research was first published in a peer reviewed E Journal in an article entitled “Social consensus through the influence of committed minorities.” Computational and analytical methods were used to discover the tipping point where an obscure idea eventually becomes the majority opinion. The finding has dramatic implications for those of us trying to wake up the sheep in this country. The SNARC scientists found that the 10% figure was applicable whether they were talking about the spread of innovations or to advance an ideal. Reaching 10% of the population should be the objective of the alternative media and the primary goal should be the preservation of the soul and not to be quite as focused on achieving physical victory in this realm of existence. Conclusion The lies are exposed. Hillary and Bill cannot unring the bill, the truth has been exposed for millions of people to see. When people visit my website and listen to my live broadcast and/or radio archives, as many as 1.2 million people are exposed to the truth that the MSM will not tell you about over a typical 30 day period. When Donald Trump speaks, 12o million Americans, will somehow be exposed to his message through direct exposure or second hand information passing. My platform is no match for the reach of Donald Trump’s message. Every time Trump speaks, he undoes the power of group think and confirmation bias by the sheer number of people that he reaches with even a single statement. With the veil of lies being lifted, the people are free to see the lies of the elite. Trump has spent $25 million and he has set the psychological mind control mind control agenda of the elite on its ear. The elite have only begun to fight to hang on their ill-gotten turf. They will stop at nothing to preserve their immoral status quo. They will start wars, launch false flag attacks, increase the sqmetalsviolence at Donald Trump events and even kill Trump. These are issues for another article. Right now, hold your head up high America, stick your chest out, because for this moment, the good guys are finally winning. And even if the election is stolen or they kill Trump, his ideas cannot be killed. Trump has already won and we have already won. For today, the mission of The Common Sense Show mission is being realized as expressed in our logo: Our minds are now free and we must collectively move in for the proverbial kill. Let this movement dominate your thoughts and your actions over the next four months. Our newly found 10% awake citizens, and growing will surely grow and consume the country like a relentless tsunami. Pray for the safety of Donald Trump. Pray that God finds a way to forgive how our nation has forsaken Him. He will make our lands fertile again and he will bless us, but first we need to do our part. This morning, I feel the elation that the great Dr. Martin Luther King must have felt when he uttered the words: “Free at last, free at last, thank God we are free at last”….

Muslim Immigrants Want Swiss to Change the Flag Because it is a Christian Symbol

90169 Blog/America's Economic History Posted Mar 13, 2016 by Martin Armstrong

Muslim immigrants will petition for a referendum in Switzerland to change the national flag. They argue it is a Christian symbol and the flag should represent the separation between church and state. Well, what about the Swiss Guard who protects the pope? Less than 40% of Swiss are Catholic. This too would then offend the majority somehow. OOPS! Well, the U.S. flag has 13 stripes. Doesn’t this offend the states that joined the original 13 colonies since they are being slighted? Seems we are abandoning the past because of the present. Then there is the income tax. The Bible says you should give only a tenth. “Tithe” means a tenth or 10%. Isn’t taxing everyone far more than 10% a violation of the First Amendment right of the Freedom of Religion? You cannot practice your religion if the government violates it by creating law. What haven’t the lawyers mounted a class action lawsuit under this position?

BREAKING: EU to allow Turkish citizens to enter EU WITHOUT visa by June 2016!! and EU has to admit MORE refugees!

Submitted by IWB, on March 13th, 2016

What does the deal involve? It sounds simple enough: one Syrian refugee on the Greek islands will be returned to Turkey and, in exchange, a Syrian asylum seeker in Turkey will be found a home in Europe. The one in, one out scheme provisionally agreed by the EU and Turkey was hailed as a breakthrough by European leaders. But as well as the knotty legal and moral issues, a host of practical questions remain unresolved. How many people would be exchanged? When would it start? These are just some of the questions EU officials hope to iron out ahead of an EU summit on 17-18 March. The scheme would only apply to Syrians. Afghans, Pakistanis and other nationalities not deemed entitled to European protection could be sent back to Turkey under another aspect of the deal. But other groups, such as Iraqis, may have a better chance of being granted asylum in Europe.

http://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/mar/08/eu-turkey-refugee-deal-qa 

============================

….Turkey is due to receive $3.3bn until the end of 2018 to cover the costs of dealing with refugees, but it reportedly asked for double the amount during Monday’s talks. Grand bargain The agreement could see Turkey and the EU cooperate to end the flow of irregular refugees to Greek islands and start resettling Syrian refugees directly from Turkey to the EU. In exchange for readmitting refugees from Greece to Turkey, Brussels is expected to grant Turkish citizens the right to travel to the EU’s Schengen zone without a visa by end of June 2016. The Turkish government is also trying to secure the country’s EU membership. “Turkey is ready to work with the EU, and Turkey is ready to be a member of the EU as well,” Davutoglu said before the summit. Turkey is a temporary home to an estimated 2.75 million refugees, many from the conflict in Syria. http://www.aljazeera.com/news/2016/03/refugee-crisis-eu-turkey-agree-proposal-1603080 21149403.html

A readmission agreement signed between Turkey and the European Union set to take effect in June does not include Syrian and Iraqi illegal migrants, Turkey’s EU Minister said Thursday. When the deal is implemented, the EU will have the ability to return illegal migrants — who traveled through Turkey — to Turkey in order to be processed before they are sent back to their country of origin. Citizens of Iraq and Syria, which make up the majority of illegal migration, are not part of the deal. Speaking in a panel at German Marshall Fund policy think tank, Volkan Bozkir said the readmission agreement and the removal of visa requirements for Turkish citizens visiting the EU were signed at the same time. The visa removal is expected to take place at year’s end. “EU has to remove the visa in October, November. If the readmission agreement goes into effect and the visa removal doesn’t happen in that period of time, we have the right to annul the agreement according to the readmission agreement. This is a relation which goes hand in hand,” Bozkir said. It was not correct to assume that 1 million illegal migrants would be returned to Turkey the day the agreement went into effect because the process was not that easy, he said.

…EU leaders discussed a wide range of proposals by Turkey to solve the refugee crisis Monday, including the return of all irregular migrants, accelerating a visa-liberalization process for Turkish citizens and sharing the work of hosting Syrian refugees. Bozkir maintained that it would be right to speak of thousands or “maybe tens of thousands of refugees” to be returned to Turkey, not hundreds of thousands or millions, if the readmission plan with EU is enacted.

The United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein warned the EU on Thursday against collective and arbitrary expulsions of migrants. Speaking to the UN Human Rights Council about his annual report on human rights, he said, “The EU’s draft arrangement with Turkey earlier this week raises a number of very serious concerns. We do not yet have full details of this draft.” “I plan to discuss my concerns in full during my visit to Brussels early next week, before the two-day EU Summit which begins on 17 March. Among my concerns is the potential for collective and arbitrary expulsions, which are illegal,” he added.

Slovenia and neighboring Croatia have banned the transit of most refugees through their countries to seal off the Balkan route used by conflict-hit people to reach northern Europe. Slovenia’s Interior Ministry said late Tuesday that only “foreigners meeting the requirements to enter the country” would be allowed access from midnight. Refugees will be selected “on a case by case basis on humanitarian grounds and in accordance with the rules of the Schengen zone,” the statement added. Croatia also adopted similar restrictions and refused transit to most refugees as of early Wednesday. “Apparently Europe has decided to start a new phase in resolving the migrant crisis. It was concluded that on the Schengen zone borders the Schengen rules would be applied,” said Croatian Interior Minister Vlaho Orepic, whose country is not part of visa-free Schengen zone. Croatia also said it would only grant access to refugees with proper visas. Serbia also said it would follow suit and impose similar restrictions at its borders with Bulgaria and Macedonia.

With the door still firmly shut to thousands of migrants and refugees on the Macedonian border, the UN and aid agencies are warning of a looming humanitarian catastrophe in Europe. “As we speak, there are an estimated 42,000 migrants on Greek soil,” said Euronews’ Athens correspondent Stamatis Giannisis. “Some 12,000 of them are at the Idomeni camp on the Greek-Macedonian border while 10,000 are still in the eastern Aegean islands.” As Europe scrambles to shut down the so-called Balkan migration route, migrants and refugees have continued to arrive unabated on Greek shores, in hopes of reaching the border in time to continue on to wealthier northern European countries. After Macedonian authorities severely restricted its borders with Greece, allowing in only a few hundred per day and blocking most nationalities or those without passports, a massive buildup began in the makeshift Idomeni camp. Tens of thousands of migrants – from newborns to the elderly – sleep in cold, muddy tents, with limited access to food or healthcare.

The dark side of the EU-Turkey refugee deal If the refugees are a cause of crisis, how does the EU imagine that offloading them to Turkey is any less of a crisis?

U.N., rights groups say EU-Turkey migrant deal may be illegal The United Nations and human rights groups warned on Tuesday that a tentative European Union deal to send back all irregular migrants to Turkey in exchange for political and financial rewards could be illegal.

aspects of the deal—including how far they would go to meet all of Turkey’s tougher demands—until late next week. Under the provisional agreement, though, the EU agreed to speed up its work on Turkey’s EU membership application and Ankara’s bid for visa free access for its citizens to the bloc.

The EU is also set to increase the €3 billion ($3.3 billion) it had already committed to help Turkey cope with millions of refugees. In return, Turkey plans to take back migrants who arrive in Greece from Turkish shores, including Syrian refugees. For the latter, the deal would operate under a one-for-one principle, whereby EU countries would take Syrian refugees from camps in Turkey for every Syrian refugee Turkey takes back from Greece. The idea is to ensure there is only a legal, organized channel for Syrian migration to the bloc.

http://www.wsj.com/articles/eu-leaders-set-to-put-pressure-on-turkey-to-stem-flow-of-migrants-1457345227  MINISTERS OF THE EUROPEAN UNION have developed a proposal with Turkey that promises to end the chaotic and sometimes deadly flow of migrants that has been pouring across the Aegean Sea and into Greece for the past year. Under terms that were sketched out this week in Brussels, Turkey offered to take back migrants who are intercepted crossing the waters to the Greek islands and those whose asylum claims have been rejected. While this is a strong start, it fails to assure migrants that their claims will be swiftly processed. The migrant crisis has become an existential threat to a unified Europe. Many countries, feeling overwhelmed and fearful of the rush of migrants, have closed their borders, risking the entire open-border concept that enables 28 countries to function as a single market. Increased apprehensions of migrants at sea by NATO ships will help the EU regain control of its external border and warn migrants not to waste their money on smugglers offering a dangerous water passage, saving them from a perilous journey.

What does the deal involve? It sounds simple enough: one Syrian refugee on the Greek islands will be returned to Turkey and, in exchange, a Syrian asylum seeker in Turkey will be found a home in Europe. The one in, one out scheme provisionally agreed by the EU and Turkey was hailed as a breakthrough by European leaders. But as well as the knotty legal and moral issues, a host of practical questions remain unresolved. How many people would be exchanged? When would it start? These are just some of the questions EU officials hope to iron out ahead of an EU summit on 17-18 March. The scheme would only apply to Syrians. Afghans, Pakistanis and other nationalities not deemed entitled to European protection could be sent back to Turkey under another aspect of the deal. But other groups, such as Iraqis, may have a better chance of being granted asylum in Europe. How soon could it be implemented? The deal has yet to be fleshed out, but full-scale implementation could take months – or may never happen. An existing Greek-Turkish readmission scheme was agreed as long ago as 2002, but has yet to be fully enacted due to disagreements between the two countries. Legal challenges from individual refugees and international watchdogs will present similar obstacles to the deal with the EU. Meanwhile Greece’s asylum institutions are only staffed at roughly a third of full capacity, according to local officials, which means the processing and return of such a large number of refugees would take time. EU states would need to help Greece – but so far their facilitation of existing schemes, such as the failed EU relocation scheme, has been minimal, which does not bode well for future collaboration.

Hollande has confirmed that the EU is mulling the possibility of allocating an additional €3 billion for Turkey if the migrant crisis intensifies: “If the question of refugees continues and Turkey must make additional efforts for their re-admission … then, it’s true, a new grant could be foreseen at the end of 2018.” The French leader also said the deal could save the open-border Schengen zone, which has been restricted by some of the worst-hit European states in reaction to the migrant crisis. However, when commenting on Turkey’s request for visa-free travel for its citizens in the Schengen zone, Hollande stressed that Ankara should first comply with all of the necessary criteria. “Visa liberalization could take place in June if the criteria are respected, there are 72 [of them],” he said. Meanwhile, reports claim that Turkey had initially demanded a great deal more than €3 billion. According to Reuters, Turkish PM Ahmet Davutoglu reportedly asked for no less than €20 billion during his preliminary meeting with Merkel and her Dutch counterpart Mark Rutte on Sunday, bringing negotiations to a screeching halt.

In other words, Erdogan knew from the Western silence and empty platitudes that there would be no repercussions for his repressive gambit. And why was that? Because, as Erdogan is all too aware, the EU is on its knees to gain his cooperation on ending the refugee crisis assailing its very foundations. That, in turn, meant that he could send his prime minister, Ahmet Davutoglu, to Brussels to extract whopping concessions. Significantly, at the last minute before the Brussels summit opened on Monday, Turkey’s premier Davutoglu pulled out “some new ideas.” One of those “new ideas” was that Ankara was no longer requesting $3.3 billion in EU aid, as it had done four months previously. Ankara was now demanding double the money. Davutoglu hinted at the upper-hand when he arrived in Brussels, saying: “The whole future of Europe is on the table.” And he also let it be known that Turkey was talking more than just refugees, adding that Ankara expected “a new era in Turkey-EU relations.”

The rift over how to handle Europe’s immigration crisis ripped wide open Friday. As nations along the Balkans migrant route took more unilateral actions to shut down their borders, diplomats from EU nations bordering the Mediterranean rallied around Greece, the epicenter of the crisis. Cypriot Foreign Minister Ioannis Kasoulides — speaking on behalf of colleagues from France, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Malta and Greece — said decisions on how to deal with the migrant influx that have already been made by the 28-nation bloc cannot be implemented selectively by some countries. “This issue is testing our unity and ability to handle it,” Kasoulides told a news conference after an EU Mediterranean Group meeting. “The EU Med Group are the front-line states and we all share the view that unilateral actions cannot be a solution to this crisis.”

http://news.yahoo.com/amid-crisis-greece-orders-islands-slow-migrant-traffic-102217799.html 

the German and Greek leaders blasted Balkan countries for shutting their borders to migrants ahead of an EU ministers meeting Thursday, with Greek Premier Alexis Tsipras warning that the EU “has no future if it goes on like that”. Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel said the closures are “neither sustainable nor lasting” in tackling Europe’s biggest migrant crisis since World War II and would leave Greece bearing the burden of the influx. Underlining the deep divisions cleaving the bloc, Merkel and Tsipras’ reactions flew in the face of the response of EU President Donald Tusk, who welcomed the route closure as being part of a collective response of the 28-member EU. The strong words came after Slovenia and Croatia barred entry to transiting migrants from Wednesday and Serbia indicated it would follow suit.

http://news.yahoo.com/eu-ministers-meet-balkan-migrant-route-shut-054711782.html 

Migrants hoping to trek from Greece towards northern Europe found their path blocked after a string of western Balkan nations slammed shut their borders, exacerbating a dire humanitarian situation on the Macedonian frontier. Slovenia and Croatia, two of the countries along the route used by hundreds of thousands of people in recent months, barred entry to transiting migrants from midnight. Serbia indicated it would follow suit.

he European Union’s controversial refugee deal with Turkey risks being torpedoed by Cyprus, which says it cannot accept the restart of Turkey’s bid for EU membership. Under the planned deal, which leaders hope to confirm at another summit next week, Turkey would take back Syrian refugees who land in Greece in exchange for €6bn in aid, easier visa access to Europe for Turks and a speeding up of stalled EU accession talks. But now Cyprus President Nicos Anastasiades has said he will not lift his country’s veto on opening five new “chapters” in Turkey’s EU membership negotiations. “I will never accept being forced, and I will never give my consent, because otherwise I have no other choice but to not return back home,” he told the Financial Times. The veto has been in place since 2009, over Turkey’s refusal to recognise the Greek Cypriot government in Nicosia or allow Cypriot ships to dock in its ports. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/eu-refugee-deal-hits-setback-as-cyprus-objects-to-turkey-bid-a6926711.html 

Bulgaria on Friday joined a growing list of European countries flagging problems with the EU’s proposed deal to return new migrants and refugees to Turkey, saying it should involve more than just asylum-seekers on the Greek islands. In a letter to European Council President Donald Tusk, Bulgaria’s Prime Minister Boyko Borissov wrote that the agreement should also focus on the migration route on Turkey’s border with Bulgaria, as well as maritime borders between Turkey in the EU, including in the Black Sea. “Bulgaria would not be ready to accept a partial Turkish engagement (only for the Greek islands) which will most probably lead to opening up of new migration routes,” Borissov said in the letter, a copy of which was obtained by POLITICO. Sofia also raised a concern about the proposal to speed up the visa liberalization process for Turkish citizens traveling to the EU. Borissov wrote that the process “cannot be calendar driven and should remain directly bound to the implementation of the EU-Turkey readmission agreement.”

“Tomorrow,” he added, “Europe might no longer be European and even black, as there are millions who want to come in.” Colonel Qaddafi got his money. Now it is the European Union, prodded by a beleaguered Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany and overwhelmed by 1.3 million asylum seekers last year, that is desperate to deter as many migrants as possible. Their instrument of necessity is Mr. Erdogan, who, like Colonel Qaddafi before him, has a price, and knows how to bargain. As Marta Dassu, the former Italian deputy foreign minister and senior director for Europe for the Aspen Institute, put it: “Erdogan keeps locking and unlocking the door as it pleases him.” Already, the European Union has promised Mr. Erdogan €3 billion. This week, in a sweeping deal still to be confirmed by European leaders, the bloc promised him at least twice as much, along with the prospect of visa-free travel for Turks and an acceleration of Turkey’s application to join the union — a process begun nearly 30 years ago, in 1987.

Former Breitbart Reporter Busted As Video Emerges Of Alleged 'Violation' By Trump Campaign Manager

March 14, 2016 By Susan Duclos - All News PipeLine

It is not often when you get a he-said, she-said situation that explodes into national news with multiple opposing media outlets jumping on the story, to see actual footage that rebuts the majority of the original claim as well as the subsequent appearances on television news such as ABC News and Fox News as well as articles in the Washington Post, but here we have it. In an article four days ago, Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields (now former reporter) took to the pages of Breitbart News to tell her story of how she was violated by Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, in a piece titled "In Her Own Words." I wasn’t called upon to ask a question during the televised press conference, but afterwards Trump wandered around, stopping at every reporter to take their questions. When he approached me, I asked him about his view on an aspect of affirmative action. Trump acknowledged the question, but before he could answer I was jolted backwards. Someone had grabbed me tightly by the arm and yanked me down. I almost fell to the ground, but was able to maintain my balance. Nonetheless, I was shaken. The Washington Post’s Ben Terris immediately remarked that it was Trump’s campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, who aggressively tried to pull me to the ground. I quickly turned around and saw Lewandowski and Trump exiting the building together. No apology. No explanation for why he did this. The very first sentence in that article states "I never sought to be part of the story." In subsequent interviews on multiple outlets, including Fox News' Megyn Kelly, and ABC News, Ms. Fields claimed she was "violated," and this moment was "the worst experience she had gone through" aside from her father's death. Ben Terris from the Washington Post witnessed the "event" describing it to Ms. Fields as "He just threw you down" Here is the moment in question captured on camera: (Article continues after the clip) This morning BuzzFeed reported that both Michelle Fields and editor-at-large for Brietbart, Ben Shapiro, have both resigned over this incident. Ms. Fields states "I do not believe Breitbart News has adequately stood by me during the events of the past week and because of that I believe it is now best for us to part ways." Shapiro's statement includes the following: Andrew built his life and his career on one mission: fight the bullies. But Andrew’s life mission has been betrayed. Indeed, Breitbart News, under the chairmanship of Steve Bannon, has put a stake through the heart of Andrew’s legacy. In my opinion, Steve Bannon is a bully, and has sold out Andrew’s mission in order to back another bully, Donald Trump; he has shaped the company into Trump’s personal Pravda, to the extent that he abandoned and undercut his own reporter, Breitbart News’ Michelle Fields, in order to protect Trump’s bully campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, who allegedly assaulted Michelle. I spoke with Michelle the night after the incident. She told me her story. That story was backed by audiotape, eyewitness testimony from The Washington Post’s Ben Terris, physical bruises, and video tape. You can hear Ms. Fields tell the story to Megyn Kelly and on ABC News in the video below (Videographer misspelled the word "claimed" in the beginning text, but it is the clips of Fields' subsequent interviews that are of interest.) The person did touch Ms. Fields, but to call it an "assualt" or "violation," and to claim she "almost fell to the ground" after seeing the footage appears to be quite a leap. Does this incident justify Fields filing criminal assault charges against Donald Trump’s campaign manager Corey Lewandowski? Feel free to weigh in below in the comment section.

You Better Believe 'Islam Hates Us'

By Raymond Ibrahim March 14, 2016

Donald Trump’s latest politically incorrect comment concerning Islam is much truer than most know.

After being asked last week on CNN if he believed the West was at war with Islam, the Republican presidential candidate simply said: I think Islam hates us. There’s something there that -- there’s a tremendous hatred there. There’s a tremendous hatred. We have to get to the bottom of it. There’s an unbelievable hatred of us. While millions of Americans undoubtedly agree with Trump’s assertions -- at least those who have eyes and ears to see and hear with -- few realize that this “tremendous hatred” is not a product of grievances, political factors, or even an “extremist” interpretation of Islam; rather, it is a direct byproduct of mainstream Islamic teaching. According to the ancient Islamic doctrine of wal’a wa bara’, or “loyalty and enmity” -- which is well grounded in Islamic scriptures, well sponsored by Islamic authorities, and well manifested all throughout Islamic history and contemporary affairs -- Muslims must hate and oppose everyone who is not Muslim, including family members. Koran 60:4 is the cornerstone verse of this doctrine and speaks for itself: “You [Muslims] have a good example in Abraham and those who followed him, for they said to their people, ‘We disown you and the idols which you worship besides Allah. We renounce you: enmity and hate shall reign between us until you believe in Allah alone’” (Koran 60:4, emphasis added). Koran 58:22 praises Muslims who fight and kill their own non-Muslim family members: “You shall find none who believe in Allah and the Last Day on friendly terms with those who oppose Allah and His Messenger -- even if they be their fathers, their sons, their brothers, or their nearest kindred. According to Ibn Kathir’s mainstream commentary on the Koran, this verse refers to a number of Muslims who slaughtered their own non-Muslim kin (one slew his non-Muslim father, another his non-Muslim brother; a third -- Abu Bakr, the first revered caliph of Islamic history -- tried to slay his non-Muslim son.) As Ibn Kathir explains, the continuation of verse 58:22 demonstrates that Allah was immensely pleased by their unwavering zeal for his cause. (Koran 58:22 in full reads: “You shall find none who believe in Allah and the Last Day on friendly terms with those who oppose Allah and His Messenger—even if they be their fathers, their sons, their brothers, or their nearest kindred. Allah has inscribed the faith in their very hearts, and strengthened them with a spirit from Himself. He will admit them to gardens watered by running streams, where they shall dwell forever. Allah is well pleased with them and they are well pleased with Him. They are the party of Allah, and surely it is the party of Allah that shall triumph!” According to Ibn Kathir’s commentary: “It was said that the phrase from the Most High -- ‘even if they be their fathers’—that it was revealed about Abu Ubayda when he slew his father at [the battle of] Badr; ‘their sons’ was about Abu Bakr [Muhammad’s successor and first caliph] when he intended to slay his son, Abd al-Rahman; ‘their brothers’ was about Mus’ab bin Umayr, who slew his brother, Ubayd bin Umayr; ‘or their kin’ was about Omar, who slew one of his relatives. Also Hamza, Ali, and Ubayda bin al-Harith: They slew Utba, Sheeba, and al-Walid bin Uitba [their kin] at that battle. Allah knows [best]. Moreover, when the Messenger of Allah consulted with the Muslims regarding the captives of Badr, Abu Bakr advised that they should pay ransom, thereby enabling the Muslims to grow stronger. Also, since they [captives] were cousins and relatives, perhaps Allah Most High would have eventually guided them. But Omar said: ‘This goes against my thinking, O Messenger of Allah. Let me slay so-and so (a relative of Omar), and let Ali [slay] Aquil [Ali’s brother], and so-and-so [slay] so-and-so—so that Allah may know that there is no love in our hearts for the idolaters. ..’ This is the whole story.” Excerpted from Ayman al-Zawahiri’s “Loyalty and Enmity,” The Al Qaeda Reader, pgs., 63-115.) In fact, verses that support the divisive doctrine of “loyalty and enmity” permeate the Koran (see also 4:89, 4:144, 5:51, 5:54, 6:40, 9:23, and 60:1). There is one caveat, captured by Koran 3:28: when Muslims are in a position of weakness, they may pretend to befriend non-Muslims, as long as the hate carries on in their hearts. (Read here for several recent examples of Muslims living for years at peace and in friendship with non-Muslims, but then violently turning on them once they became stronger. [For more on Islamic sanctioned forms of deception, read about tawriya, and taysir.]) Because enmity for non-Muslims is so ironclad in the Koran, mainstream Islamic teaching holds that Muslim men must hate -- and show that they hate -- even their non-Muslim wives, for no other reason than that they are “infidels.” If Muslims must hate those closest to them -- including fathers, sons, brothers, and wives -- simply because they are non-Muslims, is there any surprise that so many Muslims hate foreign “infidels” who live oceans away -- such as Americans, who are further portrayed throughout the Islamic world as trying to undermine Islam? Thus, even our best Muslim friends and allies -- such as Saudi Arabia and Qatar -- are on record calling on all Muslims to hate us. According to a Saudi government-run website, Muslims must “oppose and hate whomever Allah commands us to oppose and hate, including the Jews, the Christians, and other mushrikin [non-Muslims], until they believe in Allah alone and abide by his laws, which he sent down to his Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings upon him.” In short, Trump’s assertion that “Islam hates us” is demonstrable by the plain words and teachings of the Koran, by the plain words and teachings of modern Islamic clerics, and by the past and ongoing actions of Muslims around the world. But, as usual, instead of discussing these disturbing facts, the powers that be are more determined to portray Trump as the one who hates.

Savior of VA's suicide hotline dropped 1.4M calls from vets

By Pete Kasperowicz (@PeteKDCNews) • 3/9/16 5:56 PM

A division of the Department of Veterans Affairs tasked with fixing up the VA's broken veteran suicide hotline has dropped roughly 1.4 million phone calls from veterans since fiscal year 2015, a VA whistleblower told the Washington Examiner. That high number of abandoned calls is raising questions about whether the VA is doing all it can to fix up the suicide hotline, which has been criticized as the latest part of the VA that is failing veterans. Scott Davis, a whistleblower and program specialist at the VA's Health Eligibility Center in Atlanta, noted that the VA's Health Resource Center is slated to take over the VA's suicide hotline. But according to data provided by Davis, the Health Resource Center is dropping hundreds of thousands of calls from veterans each year. According to internal data provided by Davis, the center was on pace to abandon about 900,000 veterans' calls in 2015. His data spanned the last 11 months of fiscal year 2015, and showed that 824,000 calls were unanswered or dropped.

Overdue earthquake in California set to be FAR worse than expected, study warns as research suggests TWO faultlines are set to erupt at the same time

Southern California is long overdue a quake along San Andreas fault

It last erupted in 1812, devastating the region, could hit again imminently

But new evidence suggests the San Jacinto fault will erupt simultaneously

If true, it would mean authorities have dramatically underestimated how many people will be affected by the natural disaster

By Mia De Graaf For Dailymail.com Published: 16:04 EST, 13 March 2016 | Updated: 07:31 EST, 14 March 2016

The long-overdue earthquake set to hit southern California could be far worse than expected, a new study suggests. There is widespread consensus that millions will be killed or displaced when - not if - the San Andreas fault ruptures. Now, a geophysicist claims there is a strong chance this quake will coincide with one along the adjacent San Jacinto faultline, which runs through more heavily-populated cities. If true, it would mean authorities have dramatically underestimated how many people will be affected by the natural disaster. But there is no way to predict when such an event might occur. Evidence uncovered by Julian Lozos, an assistant geophysics professor at California State University, suggests the two faultlines erupted simultaneously in 1812, devastating the region between San Diego and San Buenvaventura. If that happened once, Lozos said, there is a strong chance it can happen again. 'Looking at old earthquakes in general is really a good way to figure out what faults are capable of doing,' Lozos wrote in his paper published on Saturday in the journal Science Advances. Previously, geologists thought a quake shook San Jacinto shortly before the devastating San Andreas quake on December 8, 1812. However, Lozos has concluded the rupture along the San Jacinto faultline was in fact the starting point. Lozos analyzed historical data on the 1812 San Andreas rupture, testing four different scenarios of where it could have started. He believes it started in Mystic Lake, ripping north up the San Jacinto faultline until it jumped up into the dry creek that runs parallel. San Andreas runs 810 miles from Bombay Beach near San Diego up to Cape Mendocino, which is 300 miles north west of Sacramento. San Jacinto runs 180 miles through San Bernardino, Riverside and San Diego. Though the findings cannot be proved definitively, it presents a new element for scientists to acknowledge as they attempt to advise the West Coast on how to brace for the quake. 'This precedent carries the implications that similar joint ruptures are possible in the future and that the San Jacinto fault plays a more significant role in seismic hazard in southern California than previously considered,' Lozos writes in the report. Indeed, University of California professor Lisa Grant Ludwig told CNN the region is not prepared for such a situation. 'In southern California, much of our infrastructure was built to withstand a rupture of either the San Andreas or San Jacinto faults, but not both at the same time,' she explained. Meanwhile, scientists are also working to plot the route of the tsunami expected to hit the West Coast when the Cascadia faultline - buried in the Pacific Ocean - finally ruptures. This quieter cousin of the San Andreas Fault in California is far more dangerous, and could make itself known at any moment. Running from Northern California to British Columbia, the Cascadia Subduction Zone can deliver a quake that's many times stronger than San Andreas. Seismologists say a full rupture of the more than 600-mile-long offshore fault and an ensuing tsunami is now only a matter of when. 'Cascadia can make an earthquake almost 30 times more energetic than the San Andreas to start with,' Chris Goldfinger, a professor of geophysics at Oregon State University told CNN. 'Then it generates a tsunami at the same time, which the side-by-side motion of the San Andreas can't do'. The Cascadia could deliver a huge 9.0-magnitude quake and the shaking could last anything from three to five minutes, scientists claim. 'In this case, three minutes - and I've been in a 9 in Japan - three minutes is an eternity,' said Goldfinger. 'It is a very, very long time.' Goldfinger says we'll lose bridges, highway routes and that the coast will probably be entirely closed down. As a result it would be difficult to get around, and rescue crews will be overwhelmed. Federal, state and military officials have been working together to draft plans to be followed when the 'Big One' happens. These contingency plans reflect deep anxiety about the potential gravity of the looming disaster: upward of 14,000 people dead in the worst-case scenarios, 30,000 injured, thousands left homeless and the region's economy setback for years, if not decades. As a response, what planners envision is a deployment of civilian and military personnel and equipment that would eclipse the response to any natural disaster that has occurred thus far in the US. There would be waves of cargo planes, helicopters and ships, as well as tens of thousands of soldiers, emergency officials, mortuary teams, police officers, firefighters, engineers, medical personnel and other specialists. 'The response will be orders of magnitude larger than Hurricane Katrina or Super Storm Sandy,' said Lt. Col. Clayton Braun of the Washington State Army National Guard. Oregon's response plan is called the Cascadia Playbook, named after the threatening offshore fault — the Cascadia Subduction Zone. The plan, unveiled last year, has been handed out to key officials so the state can respond quickly when disaster strikes.

Louisiana flooding: Nearly 5,000 homes damaged

By Catherine E. Shoichet, CNN Updated 10:17 PM ET, Sun March 13, 2016

(CNN)First, heavy rains pelted northern Louisiana. Then storms headed south, drenching coastal areas. The result: widespread floods that damaged thousands of homes and sent officials scrambling to survey the damage left behind. On Sunday, U.S. President Barack Obama declared that a "major disaster" had hit Louisiana. The state emergency management office described the flooding, which began last week, as a "historic flood event." As Gov. John Bel Edwards met Sunday with officials and residents in Merryville, Louisiana, where river levels were at a record high, the town's mayor warned that more rain is forecast for later in the week. "We're not out of a crisis situation right now. .... I'm hoping that it doesn't get a lot worse, but I'm not making any promises," Mayor David Eaves said, according to CNN affiliate KPLC. The state's emergency management office echoed that message. "We urge everyone to continue to use caution in areas where floodwaters remain. This crisis is not over," officials said in a statement Sunday. "The National Weather Service indicates thunderstorms and a potential of severe weather are forecast this evening in Northwest Louisiana, which could cause even more problems. Other problems with rivers and bayous are causing new problems to develop." Across Louisiana, parishes reported that nearly 5,000 homes had been damaged by flooding so far, the emergency office said. And they're not done with taking stock yet. In Merryville, in southwestern Louisiana near the state's border with Texas, the mayor compared the damage to what the town faced after Hurricane Rita in 2005. So far, the recent rains aren't quite as bad, he said, but it comes close. "We're looking at a month long operation of getting damage assessment done. ... We've got 200 homes and 200 trailers that are underwater," he said. In Bossier Parish, the sheriff's office posted video on its Facebook page that showed a slow-moving truck rumbling through waist-high water on a highway where drivers normally travel at 55 mph. The President's disaster declaration Sunday makes federal funding available to people in seven parishes affected by severe storms and flooding, the Federal Emergency Management Agency said. Mississippi, Texas and Arkansas also saw flooding as the slow-moving storm system plodded across the South last week. At least four people have been killed in the storms, state officials said. CNN's Tony Marco contributed to this report.

Another Clinton Associate Found Dead, Bill and Hillary’s Body Count Increases!

Submitted by IWB, on March 13th, 2016

For some people, when the FBI has an alleged 150 agents working on a case against you, and everyone in your own inner-circle that hasn’t already been granted immunity has lawyered-up, some people might start to break a sweat… but not if you’re last name is Clinton. If your last name is Clinton, you just kill them before they can say anything. Just ask ex Clinton associate and former Clinton “hitman” Larry Nichols who claims to have murdered many people on the Clinton’s behalf, for money of course. Although Mr. Nichols is retired from working for the Clinton’s, based on the new article below, it doesn’t look like the Clinton’s have retired from the killing business just yet. In the following video, which is taken from the Rick Santilli show from Sept. 24, 2013, ex Clinton associate Larry Nichols goes into detail about how he murdered people to protect the Clinton’s (at their order). To see the full list of alleged Clinton murders click HERE. USA Today Politics reports: Fascinating information is going viral about Hillary and Bill Clinton, which exposes just how truly ruthless they are. In many ways they are worse than Obama. One major reason I say this is because the Clintons have a long history of people in their inner-circle dying under mysterious circumstances. In fact, 46 people who were close to the Clintons have died during their 3 decades of political power. That number should give us all pause. If Hillary Clinton was a Republican, that number would be the question asked by reporters every day. Now, the latest to be added to the list, maintained by WhatReallyHappened.com, is Walter Scheib. He was hired by the Clinton White House to work as a Chef, and continued to serve the Bush administration. Interestingly, he was reported missing during a hike, and his body was found almost 2 miles away at the bottom of a river. No cause of death has ever been made, but the death date is listed as June 13, 2015. But the list is far more extensive! For example, Mary Mahoney was a Clinton White House Intern who was executed brutally at a Starbucks she was managing in 1997. As a lesbian, she became close friends with all of the interns of the early Clinton administration, and they would seek her advice after Bill’s sexual advancements. She would have been a star witness during the Clinton impeachment trials. And don’t forget Clinton White House Council Vince Foster, who was found dead in Ft. Marcy Park in Washington, D.C. He supposedly killed himself with a shotgun, and was found a few days later with a suitcase that contained a shredded suicide note. Foster knew the Clintons from his time at Rose Law Firm in Arkansas, and had intimate details of the Clinton’s financial situation. Apparently, he made a phone call to Hillary Clinton just hours before his death. The person who found him never saw a gun. Also, you may not have heard of the Clinton’s former lawyer Charles Ruff who died in 2000: Charles Ruff was one of Clinton’s attorneys during the impeachment trial and was known to have inside information on the White House email scandal as well. Original reports were that he died in an accident in his home although no details were given. Then the report changed to claim that he was found in his bedroom unconscious, then declared dead on arrival at the hospital. The authorities will provide no details other than the usual (and quite premature) assurances that there was no foul play involved. And don’t forget James McDougal! Jim McDougal was serving his 3-year sentence for bank fraud at the Fort Worth Federal Medical Center in Texas, a facility operated by the Federal Bureau of Prisons for inmates who need medical attention. Just prior to another round of testimony before Kenneth Starr’s grand jury, and while the reporters who were covering that story were two hours away covering a standoff situation in Waco that just “went away,” Jim McDougal suffered a heart attack while in solitary confinement. Left alone for too long, when Jim McDougal was taken out of solitary, instead of attempting to defibrillate his heart with equipment on hand at the facility, he was driven to John Peter Smith Hospital. Not the closest hospital to the Fort Worth Federal Medical Center, John Peter Smith Hospital is a welfare hospital, where (in the words of one local) ,”They let interns practice on deadbeats.” NEW! The Fort Worth Star-Telegram acquired the official report of the McDougal death via a Freedom Of Information Act request, and reported that doctors ignored McDougal’s signs of imminent death. The Clinton body count is massive and growing. Hillary Clinton will stop at nothing to become President, and death seems to follow her everywhere she goes. It is time to learn the truth about these murders and expose the Clintons. Instead of the White House, it appears they both belong in prison.

Computer Programmer Testifies Under Oath He Rigged Election Computers (Video)

By Voice of Reason · Saturday, March 12th, 2016

VOTER REGISTRATION CHICAGO STYLE There was a time not that long ago when if you asked some people why they chose not to vote in Presidential elections, an answer you would frequently hear was, “My vote doesn’t count anyway, so why bother?” For the “most part,” if you heard that answer, you knew it was coming from an utterly clueless American with no clue how our system of government works. How could they not know you ask? For starters, you might ask the liberal Department of Indoctrination… excuse me… I mean Department of Education, why they decided in their infinite liberal wisdom to make teaching the Constitution of the United States “optional” these days in public schools. I’ll tell you why: Because if people don't know their rights, they won't know when their rights are being trampled, like what is going on with the "Establishment" trying to take out Trump. When people don't know their rights, it becomes much easier for them to be bamboozled. They know something seems wrong, but can't say what, so they remain quiet. With the level of corruption that has infested our electoral process, the time is fast approaching, when what people who say their votes do not really count anyway will be RIGHT, because so many layers of corruption have been embedded into the system. In what follows I’m going to review just a few of those layers, and I hope you pay very close attention, because where this all is heading… is death. Lots of death. If you had an opportunity to listen to Geopolitical mastermind Craig Hulet when he was interviewed on Illuminati control over U.S., then you heard him say that the global elites were willing to spend up to or even higher than $4 Billion to make sure Jeb Bush won the office. Even Newt Gingrich made it clear the other night on Fox News when he said the reason the “Establishment” hates Trump so much, is because Trump is Not An Illuminati Member; He hasn’t had his initiation rights yet.” NOBODY saw this coming! In the first video below, a computer programmer testifies under oath he coded computer election terminals to RIG elections. This particular case took place in Florida, where then Florida Republican Speaker of the House (as well as lobbyist for the voting machines in question), Tom Feeney asked the man testifying if he could write a computer program that would flip the the votes from whoever won the election, to the candidate he desired to win it. What is so terrifying about the testimony above, is the ease with which the gentleman testifying says a program that hijacks an election can be written. He testifies that with less than 100 lines of code, the programmer could reshape the election for the leader of the free world. Furthermore, he says there really is no "anti-virus" equivalent that can be run. The only way to determine if there has been tampering is by programmers from both sides to review every line of code to make sure there was nothing slipped in, OR, count the hard paper against the vote totals. I've yet to hear where that is done… so….

Massive FDA crackdown coming on natural product companies: New FDA head Robert Califf to unleash sweeping nationwide surprise inspections under 2011 FSMA law

Sunday, March 13, 2016 by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger

(NaturalNews) Following the confirmation of new FDA head Robert Califf, I have been told by people in the legal field with close ties to FDA staffers that the FDA is planning to ramp up a wave of inspections and crackdowns targeting natural product companies. This sweeping crackdown assault, I've been told, will be invoked under the Food Safety and Modernization Act (FSMA), which was aggressively pushed into law following a series of highly suspicious outbreaks of E.coli and salmonella in food products in 2010. These outbreaks were widely publicized by the mainstream media which obeyed its propaganda marching orders from the government to whip up a frenzy of irrational fear over all fresh food. From that fear, the political establishment passed the FSMA and Obama signed it into law on January 4, 2011. FSMA to bankrupt small businesses by requiring pharma-level manufacturing practices The FSMA essentially requires all nutritional supplement, herbal formula and superfood companies to adhere to many of the same quality control procedures as multi billion-dollar pharmaceutical companies. The FDA's GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) guidelines describe these measures and have been the law of the land since the signing of the FSMA. Yet most small supplement and superfood companies are nowhere near GMP-compliant due to the extraordinary costs of compliance. (Our own operation is GMP compliant, which is why I am intimately familiar with the extreme costs of compliance and the mountain of paperwork that must be produced to achieve this compliance.) It is this non-compliance with GMP and FSMA that the FDA is now planning to use as a regulatory weapon in nationwide, sweeping shut down of natural product companies, I've been told. Click here to watch my full video commentary on this matter, posted on YouTube. Or watch the video here (story continues below) And yet some of these companies legitimately deserve to be shut down... As the author of the new book Food Forensics -- launching July 26th in bookstores everywhere -- I fully understand that some companies in the natural products space are irresponsibly cutting corners and totally failing to adhere to basic safety procedures in food manufacturing. So I can see a reasonable argument for taking action against the most egregious violators of food safety. But this new sweeping crack down by the FDA appears to be far more than that: It seems to be a politically motivated attempt to destroy Big Pharma's competition and further monopolize pharmaceutical profits that rake in hundreds of billions of dollars a year worldwide. It seems no coincidence that the FDA's new head, Robert Califf, has accepted money from 23 drug companies and has already stated he thinks the FDA should be a partner of the drug industry. What better way to accomplish this than to use the FDA as a regulatory weapon to destroy Big Pharma's competition? Surprise inspections: The FDA Gestapo, or a legitimate public safety effort? Over the next several years, if my insider information is correct, the FDA plans to accelerate its surprise inspections of natural product manufacturers, shutting down as many as it can in the process. At one extreme, this can be seen as a kind of "Gestapo" industry assault by an out of control federal regulator with a nefarious agenda of destroying the natural products industry. At the other end of this spectrum, if the FDA is very selected in its actions and only targets the very worst offenders, it could be reasonably justified as a way to improve public safety by eliminating borderline criminal product manufacturers who are likely to get somebody killed sooner or later (due to their deliberate lack of safety and testing). It wasn't long ago that the FTC and FDA cooperated with the DOJ on the criminal prosecution of an extreme case of dietary supplement criminality, charging operators of a particularly nefarious manufacturing ring with felony crimes. Natural News supported that legal action against these alleged criminals, as they were importing toxic chemicals and pharmaceuticals from China, calling them "natural plant extracts" and dishonestly selling them in pills that targeted body builders. Those pills, the government alleges, resulted in dozens of people suffering permanent liver damage... and possibly even a few deaths. As the author of the Food Forensics book and the lab science director of the Natural News Forensic Food Lab, I fully support criminal prosecutions against fraudulent dietary supplement companies that are deliberately and maliciously placing customers' lives at risk in order to earn quick profits from extremely dangerous substances marketed with fraudulent claims. Yet the concern in all this is whether the FDA will limit its targeting to such egregious cases of criminal fraud, or if they will use their unbounded regulatory power as a political weapon to oppress, intimidate and ultimately decimate honest dietary supplement companies whose products compete with pharmaceutical profit interests. With the increased interest in natural medicine products, millions of Americans are turning away from Big Pharma's toxic, overpriced drugs that don't work, instead discovering safer, more effective and far more affordable natural medicine remedies that in many cases make high-priced pharmaceuticals obsolete. RELATED: Dr. Michael T. Murray's Natural Medicine Summit begins tomorrow! Learn a wealth of knowledge about using natural medicine to prevent and even reverse serious disease. Here at Natural News, we'll keep watching the FDA's actions with a skeptical eye, and we'll report back to you what we're seeing and hearing from inside the industry. Facts about the FDA's crackdown on natural product companies Here are some things you need to know right now:

The Natural News Store has already been surprise inspected at least twice by the FDA working in conjunction with Texas public health authorities. The inspectors were very professional and found zero problems in our facility. Here in Texas, we have no complaints about the professionalism of the FDA inspectors we've met so far. Perhaps they were happy to see that we are GMP compliant and have our own science laboratory. (We also do not push "diet pills" or scammy supplements.)

As revealed in my book Food Forensics, I personally know of the existence of quite a few companies in the natural products space who are utterly failing (refusing?) to conduct even the most basic composition and safety tests of their own products. They don't test for heavy metals, pesticides, identity tests, microbiology or anything. This is a very serious matter and it really does put the public at risk of harm. I personally am aware of a great many small companies and small operations that willfully skip all product testing because they don't want to spend the money for such tests. Just like the recent scandal with The Honest Company, these operators have absolutely no idea what they're really selling.

• The demeanor of FDA inspectors varies widely by region. I've heard that inspectors in certain areas of Colorado are very much Gestapo-like in their actions. The ones we've encountered in Texas so far have been professional yet firm. However, it is my belief that state safety regulators should be the ones dealing with food safety on a local level, not federal regulators.

Ironically, Natural News is likely to financially BENEFIT from the shutting down of smaller, non-compliant natural product manufacturers. In fact, the upshot of all this is that only larger product manufacturers will be able to survive the regulatory pressure. From an economics perspective, this is ultimately bad for consumers because it means fewer choices in the marketplace and less competition for innovative products. Hurry and gain lifesaving knowledge about natural medicine while you still can Because natural products are under assault, I encourage you to get up to speed a quickly as possible on learning about natural medicine solutions. Dr. Michael T. Murray's Natural Medicine Summit begins tomorrow! It includes compelling interviews with over a dozen of the top doctors, naturopaths, scientists and activists on the subject of natural medicine. This includes Sayer Ji who runs GreenMedInfo.com, as well as an extremely powerful interview between myself and Dr. Murray where we discuss strategic defensive eating to prevent cancer with simple foods. Click here to register for the Natural Medicine Summit (it's free), and realize that if the FDA really gets aggressive with shutting down natural product companies, you are going to have fewer and fewer choices in acquiring natural medicine. ACTION recommendations for acquiring safe natural medicine and dietary supplements Recommendation #1) GROW your own medicinal herbs. This is the No. 1 way to acquire them. My Food Rising Mini-Farm Grow Box has just been released in version 2.0, now available at SupplySource.com. It grows medicinal herbs with no electricity, no weeding and no routine watering. It's the easiest way to grow your own medicine, period! Recommendation #2) BUY superfoods and natural medicine products only from companies that are GMP compliant and who routinely engage in scientific testing of their products for heavy metals, microbiology, pesticides and more. The Natural News Store is, to my knowledge, the only online retailer in the world that owns our own high-end analytical laboratory and routinely conducts such tests of our products. Recommendation #3) SUPPORT the natural product industry by purchasing honest products from honest operators. Despite the failures of a few of the bad apples in the industry, by and large the natural products industry is extremely honest and highly beneficial to public health. There are hundreds of quality companies offering honest, safe products that truly help prevent disease and enhance health.

Almost all American Grains Are Contaminated with Glyphosate Herbicide

Glyphosate, the most common active ingredient in herbicides world-wide, has been linked to various health problems, from gluten intolerance to autism, and most recently cancer. It is well-known that herbicides with glyphosate are sprayed on genetically modified crops that have been engineered to withstand the herbicide without killing the plant. Those wishing to avoid ingesting glyphosate were told to just avoid GMO foods. However, it is less well-known that glyphosate is also applied to non-GMO crops, specifically grains such as wheat and oats. It allows the farmers to harvest these crops much quicker. As this article from Ken Roseboro at Ecowatch reports, it is now nearly impossible to eat products made from these grains without ingesting glyphosate. In addition, an investigation by Healthy Traditions in late 2014 showed that even USDA certified organic grains were also contaminated with glyphosate. Residue amounts of the herbicide are actually allowed by USDA organic standards.

Why Is Glyphosate Sprayed on Crops Right Before Harvest?

by Ken Roseboro Ecowatch  Excerpts: March 14, 2016

Ecowatch Excerpts: Glyphosate, the main ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide, is recognized as the world’s most widely used weed killer. What is not so well known is that farmers also use glyphosate on crops such as wheat, oats, edible beans and other crops right before harvest, raising concerns that the herbicide could get into food products. Glyphosate has come under increased scrutiny in the past year. Last year the World Health Organization’s cancer group, the International Agency for Research on Cancer, classified it as a probably carcinogen. The state of California has also moved to classify the herbicide as a probable carcinogen. A growing body of research is documenting health concerns of glyphosate as an endocrine disruptor and that it kills beneficial gut bacteria, damages the DNA in human embryonic, placental and umbilical cord cells and is linked to birth defects and reproductive problems in laboratory animals. A recently published paper describes the escalating use of glyphosate: 18.9 billion pounds have been used globally since its introduction in 1974, making it the most widely and heavily applied weed-killer in the history of chemical agriculture. Significantly, 74 percent of all glyphosate sprayed on crops since the mid-1970s was applied in just the last 10 years, as cultivation of GMO corn and soybeans expanded in the U.S. and globally. Charles Benbrook, Ph.D., who published the paper on the mounting use of glyphosate, says the practice of spraying glyphosate on wheat prior to harvest, known as desiccating, began in Scotland in the 1980s.Farmers there often had trouble getting wheat and barley to dry evenly so they can start harvesting. So they came up with the idea to kill the crop (with glyphosate) one to two weeks before harvest to accelerate the drying down of the grain,” he said. The pre-harvest use of glyphosate allows farmers to harvest crops as much as two weeks earlier than they normally would, an advantage in northern, colder regions. The practice spread to wheat-growing areas of North America such as the upper Midwestern U.S. and Canadian provinces such as Saskatchewan and Manitoba. Joel Ransom, an agronomist at North Dakota State University, … says desiccating wheat with glyphosate has been a useful tool for farmers. “It does help hasten dry down and controls grain weeds and other material that slows down the threshing practice,” he said. “It has an important role in areas where it’s wet.” Ransom says the practice has increased in North Dakota, which is the leading wheat-producing state in the U.S., over the past 15 years due to wetter weather. While more common in Upper Midwestern states where there is more moisture, desiccation is less likely to be done in drier wheat growing areas of Kansas, Oklahoma, Washington and Oregon. According to a wheat farmer in Saskatchewan, desiccating wheat with glyphosate is commonplace in his region. “I think every non-organic farmer in Saskatchewan uses glyphosate on most of their wheat acres every year,” the farmer speaking on condition of anonymity said. According to Tom Ehrhardt, co-owner of Minnesota-based Albert Lea Seeds, sourcing grains not desiccated with glyphosate prior to harvest is a challenge. “I have talked with millers of conventionally produced grain and they all agree it’s very difficult to source oats, wheat, flax and triticale, which have not been sprayed with glyphosate prior to harvest,” he said. “It’s a ‘don’t ask, don’t tell policy’ in the industry.” Ehrhardt also says that crops grown to produce seed are not usually sprayed with glyphosate prior to harvest because this can damage seed germination. Grain Millers, which has grain processing facilities in the U.S. and Canada, announced last year that it would not buy oats from Canada that had been desiccated with glyphosate. “We are told these (glyphosate residues) are too small to matter but can we believe that?” the Saskatchewan farmer asked. “I think everyone, even farmers that use and love glyphosate, would rather not eat a loaf of bread with glyphosate in it.” Wiebe shares similar concerns. “Consumers don’t realize when they buy wheat products like flour, cookies and bread they are getting glyphosate residues in those products,” he said. “It’s barbaric to put glyphosate in food a few days before you harvest it.” Wiebe believes the use of glyphosate on wheat may be connected to the rise in celiac disease. “We’ve seen an explosion of gluten intolerance,” he said. “What’s really going on?” “Can you imagine the public’s response if they knew that glyphosate is being sprayed on the oats in their Cheerios only weeks before it is manufactured?” Ehrhardt asked.

The Rapid Rise of Federal Surveillance Drones Over America

An alphabet soup’s worth of government agencies are exercising their ability to look down on ordinary citizens.

Conor Friedersdorf Mar 10, 2016

A little more than a decade ago the border patrol started using surveillance drones. The technology and the mission were a perfect match, and few did any worrying—almost no one objects to closely monitoring America’s southern border. The belief that the federal government was using drones to conduct domestic surveillance inside the United States, though, could get a person labeled a paranoid lunatic as recently as 2012. Yet by then, the border patrol had lent its drones to other agencies 700 times. And the Department of Homeland Security was actively developing a domestic drone fleet, egged on by at least 60 members of Congress. “This bipartisan caucus, together with its allies in the drone industry, has been promoting UAV use at home and abroad through drone fairs on Capitol Hill, new legislation and drone-favored budgets,” the Center for International Policy reported. In 2013, Senator Dianne Feinstein, a staunch defender of NSA surveillance, declared that drones are “the biggest threat to privacy in society today.” Under her questioning, the FBI admitted to using surveillance drones in “a very minimal way.” What did Feinstein know that the FBI wasn’t telling us? Perhaps that the federal government gave local police departments $1.2 million to spend on drones that year. In 2015, NBC News reported that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms spent $600,000 on six drones, “then never flew them because of technical problems with flight time, maneuverability and more.” Has ATF figured them out yet? AP reported that the DEA was using drones domestically, too. That brings us to 2016. On Wednesday, USA Today reported that the Pentagon “has deployed drones to spy over U.S. territory for non-military missions over the past decade,” citing a report by a Pentagon inspector general who declared that the flights are “rare and lawful.” That’s the narrative that officials speaking on behalf of the federal government keep conveying––that the instances of aerial surveillance over U.S. soil are safe, legal, and rare. But it isn’t so. There are too many federal, state, and local agencies with too many surveillance aircraft to pretend any longer that aerial spying is rare. There is too little oversight to presume all these government entities are acting legally. As for safety, Americans know neither what sort of aerial-surveillance data has been archived nor how secure it is. And security researcher Nils Rodday learned that he could successfully hack into professional drones and take over their operations on a $40 budget. The ACLU and Electronic Frontier Foundation are trying to draw attention to these issues; the Department of Justice has issued its own guidelines on domestic drone use. But there’s still not much public discussion, debate, or oversight of domestic drone surveillance. My sense of public opinion is that Americans don’t particularly want to be spied on from above. By keeping various aerial-surveillance programs hidden or very quiet, the government will continue to achieve a rapid fait accompli unless it is stopped.

Bomb-sniffing dog discovers 2 Hellfire missiles bound for Portland

BELGRADE, Serbia — Serbia's authorities are investigating reports that a cargo package bound for Portland contained two missiles with explosive warheads on a passenger flight from Lebanon. N1 television said the package with two guided armor-piercing missiles was discovered Saturday by a sniffer dog after an Air Serbia flight from Beirut landed at a Belgrade airport. Serbian media say documents listed the final destination for the AGM-114 Hellfire missiles as Portland. The American-made projectiles can be fired from air, sea or ground platforms against multiple targets. The Serbian state news agency Tanjug reported that the missiles had been packed in wooden coffins and unloaded at the Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport, where they were inspected by bomb-sniffing dogs. This type of missile was originally designed to be fired from a helicopter and was named Helicopter Launched, Fire and Forget Missile -- later shortened to Hellfire. The AGM-114 model is manufactured by Lockheed Martin, Boeing and Northrup Grumman. It weighs about 100 pounds and costs about $110,000 apiece. Most models use laser to home in on their targets, although one version of the AGM-114 relies on radar. The FBI in Portland said it is looking into the reports. "We don't have any information on that yet," Jennifer Adams, an FBI spokeswoman, said Sunday afternoon. N1 reported Sunday that Air Serbia is helping in the investigation. The Serbian flag carrier says "security and safety are the main priorities for Air Serbia." -- Staff and wire reports

The West falls into abyss of liberal Satanism

11.03.2016

The meeting between the head of the Russian Orthodox Church Patriarch Kirill and the head of the Roman Catholic Church received mixed reactions in the world. The meeting became a hope for some and a terrible omen signaling the collapse of religions for others. The truth, as usual, is somewhere in the middle. Pravda.Ru sat down for an interview to discuss the significance of the meeting with Orthodox publicist Victor Saulkin, a member of the Imperial Orthodox Palestine Society. "The topical news will be discussed for a long time. The meeting has left no one indifferent, including in the Orthodox world. Some assumed that Patriarch Krill betrayed the Orthodox world. What was the significance of the meeting?" "I was worried about the meeting. This is definitely not the event of the millennium, as some people said. The meeting in Havana should come along with other events that have been taking place in the world. We see the West dragging Russia into the war, while the unipolar world is falling apart. The collapse of the unipolar world system started several years ago, some time in 2007, when Vladimir Putin stated that the system, in which the wolf eats the lamb just because he is strong, could not exist. "Now we can see that Russia is the main obstacle for the unipolar world. Zbigniew Brzezinski said after the break-up of the Soviet Union that there was the most important player left - Orthodoxy. Orthodoxy is a spiritual alternative to this global world order. When they say that our country had no ideology for 25 years, this is not true to fact. We could see the Western ideology being implanted in Russia - the Golden Calf ideology. Orthodoxy and even secularized Western Christianity do not tolerate this ideology. "During the times of the Soviet Union, many in the country thought that every person in the Christian West had a gospel on their bedside table. Afterwards, it became clear that it was the Soviet Union that was protecting the world from the Golden Calf ideology. When the Soviet empire collapsed, the West assumed that Russia was dead. The country was dismembered, the defense industry and the army was destroyed. That was the time when liberal Satanism triumphed in the West. "In Catholic Italy, a court decided to take crucifixes out from schools. This is beyond understanding. In France, millions of people took to the streets to protest against gay marriage, but no one listened to them. The West is moving towards liberal Satanism. When we talk about the Islamic extremism of ISIL, we need to understand who created ISIL and what for." "The purpose of the meeting was to counter these phenomena. The patriarch said that it was time to eliminate serious problems. A lot of blood has been shed between western and eastern Christians. The world has come to the point when one needs to stand up against attempts to de-christianize and de-humanize this world. One needs a dialogue to struggle against all this evil. Do you think it was the central leitmotif of the meeting?" "First off, we understand that the Patriarch went to the meeting as the head of the Church of Eastern Christians - all Eastern Christians. Non-believing secular journalists took this fact literally. They do not know how many local Orthodox churches we have. They do not know that we do not have one single head of all Orthodoxy. We confess the One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church." "For them, it was the meeting between the eastern Pope and the western Pope." "Our Holy Patriarch does not come first in church remembrance - the Ecumenical Patriarch comes first, but this is an anachronism. So-called Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, who has only two or three churches in Istanbul, is known as a servant of the CIA. He was dubbed as the Patriarch of Istanbul. And then it suddenly turned out that Moscow is the center of Ecumenical Orthodoxy. "Incidentally, shortly after the victory in the Great Patriotic War, in 1948, a Pan-Orthodox Conference was held in Moscow, and the significance of that council was even bigger than the one that is currently taking lace on Crete. Moscow acts as the Third Rome now, and our holy patriarch reaches out a helping hand to the declining Western Christian civilization. For an Orthodox person, it is very important to maintain adherence to the truth and the purity of the church, where we go to heal our wounds. For an Orthodox person, it goes about the salvation of the soul. Therefore, the Russian people are ready to fight till the end to protect this purity. "In the West, it is believed that God judges people by their money, but this civilization is vanishing in front of our very eyes, and all Western Christians understand this. White America is dying. Western Christian civilization in Europe is in agony. Millions of refugees from Islamic countries will destroy the old world. They will change the composition of the population, build the caliphate and destroy the Western Christian civilization. "It started during the times of the French Revolution, when churches were being destroyed, when Christian France was the target. Old Catholics believe that Cardinal Lefebvre had every reason to say that the Catholic Church betrayed Christ at the Second Vatican Council, and we can see many examples to that now." "The Catholic Church changed the canons of the Christian Church in general, before it changed its own canons. Do we have anything in common at all?" "We all believe in Christ the Savior and the Gospel. Catholics have the continuous apostolic succession, and we all worship the Blessed Virgin. Catholics have their dogma of the Immaculate Conception and some other things. Yet, having broken away from grace, they split into many communities. It is impossible to count how many sects they have that they call churches. We see what it led to: they conclude same-sex unions, have gay priests and so on. The so-called World Council of Churches is the meeting of the ungodly, and the Orthodox understand this." "But we take part in it too." "We do, but we interrupt communication with those who violate the canons. We participate in order to bear witness of Christ." Interviewed by Andrei Samokhin Pravda.Ru

China Ocean Freight Indices Plunge to Record Lows

by Wolf Richter • March 14, 2016

There’s simply no respite. Money is leaving China in myriad ways, chasing after overseas assets in near-panic mode. So Anbang Insurance Group, after having already acquired the Waldorf Astoria in Manhattan a year ago for a record $1.95 billion from Hilton Worldwide Holdings, at the time majority-owned by Blackstone, and after having acquired office buildings in New York and Canada, has struck out again. It agreed to acquire Strategic Hotels & Resorts from Blackstone for a $6.5 billion. The trick? According to Bloomberg’s “people with knowledge of the matter,” Anbang paid $450 million more than Blackstone had paid for it three months ago! Other Chinese companies have pursued targets in the US, Canada, Europe, and elsewhere with similar disregard for price, after seven years of central-bank driven asset price inflation [read… Desperate “Dumb Money” from China Arrives in the US]. As exports of money from China is flourishing at a stunning pace, exports of goods are deteriorating at an equally stunning pace. February’s 25% plunge in exports was the 11th month of year-over-year declines in 12 months, as global demand for Chinese goods is waning. And ocean freight rates – the amount it costs to ship containers from China to ports around the world – have plunged to historic lows. The China Containerized Freight Index (CCFI), published weekly, tracks contractual and spot-market rates for shipping containers from major ports in China to 14 regions around the world. Unlike most Chinese government data, this index reflects the unvarnished reality of the shipping industry in a languishing global economy. For the latest reporting week, the index dropped 4.1% to 705.6, its lowest level ever. It has plunged 34.4% from the already low levels in February last year and nearly 30% since its inception in 1998 when it was set at 1,000. This is what the ongoing collapse in shipping rates looks like: The rates dropped for 12 of the 14 routes in the index. They rose in only one, to the Persian Gulf/Red Sea, perhaps in response to the lifting of the sanctions against Iran, and remained flat to Japan. Rates on all other routes dropped, including to Europe (-7.9%), the US West Coast (-3.5%), the US East Coast (-1.0%), or the worst drop, to the Mediterranean (-13.4%). The Shanghai Containerized Freight Index (SCFI), which is much more volatile than the CCFI, tracks only spot-market rates (not contractual rates) of shipping containers from Shanghai to 15 destinations around the world. It had surged at the end of last year from record lows, as carriers had hoped that rate increases might stick this time and that the worst was over. But rates plunged again in the weeks since, including 6.8% during the last reporting week to 404.2, a new all-time low. The index is now down 62.3% from a year ago: Rates were flat for three routes, but dropped for the other 12 routes, including to Europe, where rates plunged nearly 10% to a ludicrously low $211 per TEU (twenty-foot equivalent container unit). Rates to the US West Coast fell 8.4% to $810 per FEU (forty-foot equivalent container unit). Rates to the East Coast fell 5.2% to $1,710 per FEU. Rates to South America plunged 25.4%. This crash in shipping rates is a result of two by now typical forces: rampant and still growing overcapacity and lackluster demand. “Typical” because lackluster demand has been the hallmark of the global economy recently, and the problems of overcapacity have also been occurring in other sectors, including oil & gas and the commodities complex. Overcapacity from coal-mining to steel-making, much of it in state-controlled enterprises, has been dogging China for years and will continue to pose mega-problems well into the future. Overcapacity kills prices, then jobs, and then companies. The ocean freight industry went on a multi-year binge buying the largest container ships the world has ever seen and smaller ones too. It was led by executives who believed in the central-bank dogma that radical monetary policy will actually stimulate the real economy, and they were trying to prepare for it. And it was made possible by central-bank-blinded yield-chasing investors and giddy bankers. As a result, after years of ballooning capacity, carriers added another 8% in 2015, even while demand for transporting containers across the oceans languished near the flat line, the worst performance since 2009. “Massive Deterioration,” the CEO of Maersk, a bellwether for global trade, called the phenomenon.

Legend Warns About China’s Shocking Crisis And Going Cashless As World Economies Crumble

March 13, 2016

On the heels of wild start to the 2016 trading year, today the man who has become legendary for his predictions on QE, historic moves in currencies, and major global events, just warned about China’s shocking crisis, going cashless as world economies crumble and governments have their eye on your life savings. Egon von Greyerz: “As the sole focus of the media in the US is on the upcoming presidential election, the Americans are happily unaware of the fact that the US and the world economies are crumbling. Also, the debate between the candidates seems totally oblivious of what is happening in the real world since this is hardly being discussed… In Volatile Markets, Is Wealth Preservation King? In a King World News interview I spoke with the man who predicted the Swiss National Bank would experience staggering losses and that the Fed would also experience massive losses that will destabilize the global financial system! His company is the only one in the world offering a precious metals investment service outside the banking system, with direct ownership and full control by the investor. He has also become legendary for his predictions on QE, historic moves in currencies, and major global events. To find out what he and his company can do to help answer that age old question for you CLICK HERE. Egon von Greyerz continues: “Global trade is collapsing, global liquidity is crashing and bank to bank lending is falling fast. And then we have credit and asset bubbles in virtually every major economy as well as emerging markets around the world. The only solution desperate central banks know is to reduce interest rates and print more money. This is what the ECB just did again this week. Back in 2006 – 2009 interest rates were around 5%, which gave the central banks some margin to cut rates. But now we are in new territory with many countries at zero or even negative rates. No one understands the effect of negative rates because it has never occurred before in history. Eventually home buyers will go to their bank and ask to borrow €1 million and request that the banker pay the borrower for taking the loan. This is of course totally absurd and that is one of the reasons why negative rates don’t work. But no presidential candidate understands these problems or has the ability to discuss them. And even if they did, the voters would not be interested In such a debate, especially since elections must be all about good news and nothing about doom and gloom. Bad news or austerity are a guaranteed vote loser. What most people don’t realise Eric, is that their money is going to become totally worthless in the future. Let me try to explain the problems that will be facing all of us in coming years. Government Confiscation Firstly we have ZIRP or NIRP in most countries which means zero or negative interest policy. This means that in many countries in Europe and in Japan, the bank charges you when you deposit money. This is of course confiscation of your money. Every year you have less and less left, especially when bank charges are also deducted from your capital. But it doesn’t end there, Eric. Banks in Europe are now stopping depositors for taking out more than nominal amounts of cash. In France for example, the maximum is €1,000 and in Italy €3,000. Governments Going Cashless To Stop Bank Runs The reasons for this are manifold. Firstly authorities want to stop the use of cash in order to totally control people. By only allowing payments through the bank account, the government and the tax authorities are now the real Big Brother watching every step we take and every penny we spend. Sweden for example, is talking about being totally cashless in five years’ time. But the biggest reason for creating a cashless society is stop bank runs. The banking system is insolvent and leveraged up to fifty times and even more if derivatives are included. This means that there is only enough money in the bank for one client in fifty or two percent of clients in total to take out their money. If more people tried, the bank would have to close its doors because it would be bankrupt. By stopping clients to take cash out, bank runs are no longer possible. In theory clients could transfer their money to another bank but that would also be stopped. So now the bank has your money, it charges you for that pleasure and you can’t get your money out because your money is frozen or confiscated. This is what has become of the bankrupt banking system. But wait, the state has many other ways to take your money from you. When a bank is on the verge of going under, central banks around the world are no longer going to bail you out like they did in 2007 – 2009. No, next time there will be bail-ins. When a bank becomes insolvent, depositors money will be used to save the bank and to pay the banks losses. Another method that bankrupt governments will apply is to use bank deposits for forced savings. Every depositor will be obliged to put some or all of his cash into long term government bonds, probably for at least thirty years. It is easy to imagine that the money will be totally worthless after thirty years. Worthless Money And Greater Financial Collapse And if your money hasn’t been lost already after all the above, central banks are guaranteed to print enough money in coming years that most currencies will reach their intrinsic value of zero. Governments will have no other option in their attempt to save the financial system. We know of course that money printing can never save the world. All it will do is to add more debt thus making the final collapse even bigger. Eric, all the risks that I have just outlined, are a fail-safe guarantee that anyone who holds money in a bank today is likely to lose most or all of it over the next few years. As you know, I haven’t trusted the banking system for many years. When the odds are against you, why should you take such a massive risk that could lose you all your money. Remember that the banks are also custodians for clients’ securities and if the bank goes under, segregated securities are unlikely to remain segregated. Just remember what happened to Lehman and MF Global. How To Keep Your Life Savings From Being Stolen The wonderful thing is of course that there is such a simple solution. There is real money, which is gold and silver. The precious metals have been money for thousands of years and are the only money that has survived in history. Gold and silver, stored outside the banking system, is far superior to keeping cash in the bank. It is instant liquidity and it can be bought or sold in seconds. It is a superior way to keep liquid funds, and with zero or negative interest rates, the holding costs are very low. And if the financial system temporarily ceases to function, gold and silver will be used as barter. Throughout history, whenever there has been a crisis, gold or silver have always been used instead of paper money. We have talked many times about global risks Eric. There is virtually no major country that can survive economically intact from the coming crisis, whether we talking about Japan, Europe, the US, or emerging markets. Every day we hear of more problems. China’s borrowings for example, have gone from $2 trillion to $35 trillion in this century. The problem is that so much of this has been spent on redundant infrastructures. We all know of the many ghost towns. China’s Shocking Situation And Global Cataclysm But what is astonishing is that in three years China consumed more cement that the US did during the whole of the 20th century. There has been a tremendous amount of spending in China on projects that are now standing idle. This is why the Chinese government has just come out with a new scheme to save the Chinese financial system. Banks will be allowed, with government assistance, to turn bad loans into equity. But that is of course no solution. Instead of loans that won’t be repaid, banks will now hold equity in companies that are either worthless or worth considerably less than the value of the shares the bank is holding. Another consequence of this scheme is that banks will now have more lending capacity so they will again inflate their balance sheet with more bad loans. No one knows the amount of bad debt in the Chinese financial system but it could easily be up to 20% of the total loans or $7 trillion. Eric the risks are so substantial everywhere we look that a problem anywhere in the world could trigger a global cataclysm. This is why wealth protection in the form of gold and silver is so important and everyone who has liquid funds should own precious metals as insurance against these risks. ***KWN has now released the incredible audio interview with former White House official Larry Lindsey, where he discusses the coming chaos, the fight for freedom, gold, and how to take back control of our money, and you can listen to it by CLICKING HERE OR ON THE IMAGE BELOW. ***ALSO RELEASED: ALERT: Crucial Update On The War That Is Raging In The Silver And Gold Markets CLICK HERE.

Night Hunter: Russia’s New Helicopter Gunship Grabs Int’l Attention

17:04 17.03.2016(updated 17:09 17.03.2016)

The first batch of Mi-28NE Night Hunter attack helicopters has rolled off the assembly line at a Rosvertol plant in Rostov-on-Don, Gazeta.ru wrote on Thursday. The Mi-28NE Night Hunter, an export version of the Mil-28N helicopter developed by Rostvertol, a manufacturing arm of Russian Helicopters is an all-weather, day-night, military tandem, two-seat anti-armor attack helicopter with enhanced combat capabilities against land, air and sea-based targets. A number of Mi-28NEs are currently on combat duty in Iraq and are now being eyed also by Brazil, Vietnam and several North African countries. The Mi-28NE Night Hunter (NATO reporting name “Havoc”) can be deployed to identify and destroy enemy battle tanks, armored vehicles, personnel, boats, small naval vessels, and low-speed and low-altitude aircraft. It can also be used to destroy protected sites and defense installations. The Mi-28NE boasts an integrated electronic combat system. Other modifications include: a new main gearbox for transmitting higher power to the rotor; new high-efficiency blades with swept-shaped tips; and an engine fuel injection control system. The main sensors of the integrated electronic combat system are the microwave radar antenna, mounted above the rotor head, and a forward-looking infrared system. The system displays the helicopter location on a moving map indicator, and flight, systems and target information on liquid crystal displays. The crew is equipped with night-vision goggles. The pilot uses a helmet-mounted target designator, which allocates the target to the navigator's surveillance and fire control system. The navigator/weapons officer is then able to deploy guided weapons or guns against the target. The targeting system follows the direction of the pilot's eyes. The Mi-28NE Night Hunter is powered by two VK-2500 turboshaft engines each generating maximum take-off power of 2,200hp. The helicopter can climb at a rate of 13.6m/s and has a service ceiling of 5,600m. The cruise and maximum speeds are 270km/h and 300km/h respectively, while the range is about 435km. Nearly a dozen countries have shown interest in buying the Night Hunters. “These are CIS countries, Latin America, Vietnam, Malaysia, Thailand, Bahrain, Iran, Egypt, Algeria and also countries in sub-Saharan Africa, a source at the Defense Ministry’s international cooperation department told Gazeta.ru.

U.S. House votes 393-0 to declare ISIL atrocities ‘genocide’

Special to WorldTribune.com Radio Free Europe / Radio Liberty

The U.S. House overwhelmingly condemned as genocide the atrocities committed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant extremist group (ISIL) against Christians, Yazidis, and other groups in Iraq and Syria. The 393-0 vote on March 14 came as U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry considers making a legal determination that IS committed genocide — a move that some believe would obligate the United States to take further action against the group beyond the current air-strike campaign. House Speaker Paul Ryan chided the White House for delaying a decision. “As the administration waffles on this issue and doubles-down on its failed strategy to defeat ISIS, the American people are speaking loudly and clearly,” he said, using another acronym for the group. The House resolution identifies ISIL’s actions against Christians, Yazidis, Kurds, and other groups as “genocide, war crimes, and crimes against humanity.” While the House vote was nonbinding, an executive branch determination of genocide could set off far-reaching moral and legal consequences. Only one such determination has been made previously, targeting the atrocities committed in Sudan’s Darfur region in 2004. At the least, a determination against ISIL would probably be referred to the United Nations Security Council for prosecution by the International Criminal Court.

Israel’s Main Concern in Syria: Iran, not ISIS

For some Israelis, desire to contain Tehran trumps fight against Islamic State, al Qaeda

By Yaroslav Trofimov March 17, 2016 5:30 a.m. ET

JERUSALEM—Unlike Syria’s other neighbors, Israel has by and large stayed away from the war that is ripping the country apart. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t deeply interested in how the five-year conflict ends—or that its interests are necessarily aligned with Washington's. etc. and the news story continues..

American ISIS Fighter a 'Gold Mine' for US Intelligence

News ISIS Terror Mar 16 2016, 5:18 pm ET by Josh Meyer

U.S. officials are eager to question an alleged American ISIS fighter captured in Iraq on Monday because he could be a treasure trove of intelligence about how the Islamic State really works, current and former U.S. counterterrorism officials told NBC News. "He would be an intelligence gold mine," said Seamus Hughes, a former U.S. National Counterterrorism Center official, who described Mohamed Jamal Khweis as the first American fighting with ISIS believed to have surrendered in the field. "He could provide a window into the ISIS command structure," said Hughes, who is now a deputy director of the Program on Extremism at George Washington University. "Who does he report to? What does his daily routine look like? And the most important thing - how did he get there?" Current and former U.S. counterterrorism officials said Khweis could provide key operational details of how Western recruits have managed to link up with ISIS recently despite a massive — and largely successful — effort by the U.S., Turkey and other countries to seal the borders leading into Syria and Iraq. And they hope Khweis can answer another critical question: What are these Western recruits, particularly Americans, doing for ISIS when they get there? Documents leaked last week by a disillusioned former ISIS member seem to show that Western recruits are asked whether they're interested in fighting or becoming suicide attackers. The documents contain information on thousands of purported ISIS members, including some Americans. Khweis, a 26-year-old U.S. citizen from Alexandria, Virginia, was captured by Kurdish Peshmerga military forces near Sinjar on Monday as he tried to enter the Kurdistan Region of Iraq from the ISIS stronghold of Mosul. On Wednesday, the Kurdistan Region Security Council said Khweis had traveled through Turkey to Syria in December 2015 accompanied by a young Iraqi woman. "He arrived in Iraq in late January and later fled, he claims, to return home," the council said. "His journey from the United States included stopovers in a number of European countries." The council stopped short of saying Khweis was fleeing from ISIS. The council said it was "in dialogue with our U.S. counterparts and authorities" about Khweis and that he was still in Kurdistan and being questioned by "relevant security authorities." It was not clear whether those authorities included U.S. intelligence and law enforcement officials, who are seeking access to Khweis. The U.S. Justice Department had no immediate comment on whether it plans to prosecute Khweis, as it has at least four other Americans who allegedly joined ISIS overseas. So far, Khweis has not been linked to any jihadist websites, chat rooms or other ISIS-related social media, according to Alex Kassirer, a counterterrorism analyst at the Flashpoint threat intelligence firm. She cautioned that Khweis could have operated under another name, or jihadi alias. More than two dozen other Americans have been confirmed as going to Syria to join ISIS, and officials speculate that the actual number may be far larger. At least eight have been killed. How Khweis made it past the anti-ISIS dragnet, and who helped him, is of particular interest, Hughes said. "They've done a good job of locking down the borders so you have to be very creative in getting there and need to know somebody. So it's very unlikely he just kind of showed up and met recruiters." Khweis can also shed light on how ISIS uses American fighters, and possibly on whether some are groomed for attacks in their home countries. Some Americans fighting for ISIS have served as low-level grunts while British counterparts played more strategic roles. "Was he placed with other foreign fighters?" Hughes asked. "Do they just throw them into the front lines? Or do they place special importance on Americans?"

Ayanle Hassan Ali, accused of stabbing at Canadian Forces centre, facing 9 charges

Toronto police Chief Mark Saunders says he doesn’t want to see ‘Islamophobia nonsense’ in relation to case

CBC News Posted: Mar 15, 2016 8:08 AM ET Last Updated: Mar 15, 2016 7:25 PM ET

A man accused of stabbing two members of Canada's military at a recruitment centre in Toronto on Monday is facing nine charges in connection with the attack. Ayanle Hassan Ali, a 27-year-old born in Montreal, appeared in court Tuesday wearing white prison-issued overalls and with his hands cuffed behind his back. The accused hung his head and looked down at the floor for most of a brief court appearance Tuesday, saying his name quietly when asked to do so. At one point, Toronto police spelled his first name as Ayanie, but offered no explanation for the mistake. Ali faces: Three charges of attempted murder. Two charges of aggravated assault. Three charges of assault with a weapon. One count of carrying a weapon dangerous to the public. Ali, who was remanded until Friday, will be back in court on March 18. DND still conducting security review 18 months after Parliament Hill shooting Two Canadian Armed Forces members stabbed at recruiting centre According to Toronto police Chief Mark Saunders, Ali said, "Allah told me to do this, Allah told me to come here and kill people," during the attack. Outside court, David Burke, Ali's lawyer, told reporters, "This is a very, very serious incident and no one is going to pretend it's not. "It's a very, very difficult situation he finds himself in," Burke added. "He seems very scared." Burke said he was "not getting into whether [Ali's] remorseful" about Monday's attack. When Saunders was asked if it was a terror attack, he said, "We're certainly looking into it," but cautioned against jumping to any conclusions. He noted it is too early to say if the accused was radicalized and urged the public against any anti-Islam sentiment in the wake of the attack. "I don't want this categorizing a large group of people; that will be very unfair and very inaccurate," he said, adding he doesn't want to see any of this "Islamophobia nonsense." Saunders said the man was carrying a "very large knife" and was unresponsive after the incident. The chief appealed to the public for tips or information, saying the accused is not co-operating with police. Ali has no previous criminal record and there was nothing to indicate he is affiliated with any terrorist organizations, according to Saunders. He has been in Toronto since 2011.

Clinton’s alternate reality: America ‘didn’t lose a single person’ in Libya

Posted on March 15, 2016 by Sam Rolley

Considering what happened to U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans in Benghazi, Libya, in 2012, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton should probably apologize for her recent outrageous comment about the U.S. decision to destabilize the country in 2011. Clinton, who was Secretary of State when the U.S. conducted military operations to oust Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi in 2011, told a town hall audience the operation was a success because it didn’t lead to the loss of American life. She said: “Now, is Libya perfect? It isn’t. But they did have two elections that were free and fair where they voted for moderates? … So, you know, changing from a dictator who has hollowed out your country to something resembling a functioning state and even hopefully a more democratic one doesn’t happen overnight.” “We’ve got to continue to support the Libyan people, to give them a chance, because otherwise you see what happened in Syria, with the consequences of millions of people flooding out of Syria, with more than 250,000 people killed, with terrorist groups like [the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria] taking up almost — huge blocks of territory, as big as some of the states in that area,” Clinton added. Clinton called the decision for the U.S. to get involved in Libya a “different kind of calculation” than current efforts in Syria. The former Secretary of State didn’t mention the names of the four Americans who died in Benghazi at a diplomatic compound her department failed to protect, instead opting to say of the efforts in Libya: “We didn’t lose a single person.” Here are the names of the four Americans who died in Libya under Clinton’s watch: U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens Information Officer Sean Smith CIA operative Glen Doherty CIA operative Tyrone Woods

Death Toll In Maiduguri Suicide Bombing Rises To 26

Channels Television. Updated March 16, 2016

The number of dead persons in two suicide bomb blasts that occurred in Umarari-Mulai, in the outskirts of Maiduguri in Borno State, northeast Nigeria has been put at 26, including the suicide bombers. The attack carried out by two female suicide bombers also left 18 others injured. Army spokesman, Colonel Sani Usman confirmed the attack. He said the first attack targeted a mosque, while the second blast occurred about 50 metres away, a few minutes later. Troops, security agents and care givers have been mobilized to the scene, while the wounded have been evacuated to Molai General Hospital for treatment. Troops, security agents and the Civilian JTF have secured the area and are combing the environment for possible clues. Channels Television’s correspondent in the northeast reports that the first bomb went off from one of the suicide bombers whom had disguised as a man in order to be able to join the worshipers. The second bomber, who was outside the mosque, detonated her bomb when sympathisers rushed to the scene. It is the third attack on Umarari, a village occupied by people dislodged by insurgents in adjoining villages. The military commiserated with the families of the victims of blast and reassure Nigerians that it would continue to rout the remnants of the Boko Haram terrorists wherever they may be hiding. “We will not rest on our oars until all those that masterminded this latest heinous and other similar crimes are apprehended and brought to justice,” the army said. It further urged Nigerians to be more security conscious, cooperate with the troops and security agencies and report any suspicious persons, objects or happenings to troops or security agencies at all times. No group has claimed responsibility for the attack, but the Boko Haram terrorist group is largely suspected to be responsible. The group had claimed responsibility for similar attacks in the past. Boko Haram Would Be Eliminated The attack came a day after the Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai, said he was confident that Boko Haram would be eliminated in Nigeria. He had said that troops fighting insurgents in the northeast were doing so with utmost commitment and renewed zeal. He gave the assurance on Tuesday at the office of the Oyo State Governor during his one-day familiarisation tour of the Two Division of Nigerian Army, Adekunle Fajuyi Cantonment, Odogbo in Ibadan. According to Buratai, the intensity of the onslaught against terrorism has been increased and this has resulted in the noticeable reduction of attacks in the region.

Rich countries have a $78 trillion pension problem

CNBC By Katy Barnato March 16, 2016 9:03 AM

Dreams of lengthy cruises and beach life may be just that, with 20 of the world's biggest countries facing a pension shortfall worth $78 trillion, Citi said in a report sent on Wednesday. "Social security systems, national pension plans, private sector pensions, and individual retirement accounts are unfunded or underfunded across the globe," pensions and insurance analysts at the bank said in the report. "Government services, corporate profits, or retirement benefits themselves will have to be reduced to make any part of the system work. This poses an enormous challenge to employers, employees, and policymakers all over the world." The total value of unfunded or underfunded government pension liabilities for 20 countries belonging to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) — a group of largely wealthy countries — is $78 trillion, Citi said. (The countries studied include the U.K., France and Germany, plus several others in western and central Europe, the U.S., Japan, Canada, and Australia.) The bank added that corporates also failed to consistently meet their pension obligations, with most U.S. and U.K. corporate pensions plans underfunded. Countries with large public pension systems in Europe appear to have the greatest problem. Citi noted that Germany, France, Italy, the U.K., Portugal and Spain had estimated public sector pension liabilities that topped 300 percent of gross domestic product. Improvements in health care mean retirees need to string out their income for longer. Meanwhile, the increase in the retirement-age population versus the working population is straining government pension schemes. Several countries, including the U.K., France and Italy are gradually hiking retirement ages. Citi recommended that governments explicitly link the retirement age to expected longevity. It also advised that government-funded pensions should serve merely as a "safety net," rather than the prime pension provider, and that corporate pensions should be "opt out" rather than "opt in" to encourage greater enrollment.

Central Banks Move Into Crypto-Currencies as Part of Cashless Society Hustle

March 16, 2016 / Jeff Berwick / 7 Comments

RScoin is coming but do you want it? Top UK Telegraph journo Ambrose Evans-Pritchard just wrote about this planned crypto-currency in what is either an incredibly stupid and uneducated article or pure propaganda… it was titled “Central banks beat Bitcoin at own game with rival supercurrency.” The article is horrible central bank happy-talk that reads like the Bank of England wrote it for him and starts off with a blatant lie only three words in… this new RScoin, put out by the central bank of England, has not BEAT bitcoin. It is worse in every imaginable way than bitcoin… right down to the name. RScoin… central banker types aren’t exactly the most creative. We’ll call it FiatCoin around here. But the underlying intent is deadly serious. Central banks apparently have in mind mimicking bitcoin but issuing electronic currencies themselves and charging people to buy the currency. People may actually pay the central bank directly, thus creating accounts with central banks! If central banks and their handpicked political hooligans are successful in banning cash, the central bank’s RScoin could become the only game in town for millions and even billions of savers and investors. And central bankers would love that idea because they’d have total access to those accounts. They’d know everything you were doing and have the ability to seize or shut off your account at their choosing. It’s posited as a good thing. Everyone needs a second opinion on what they need to do with their cash and where they spend it. No doubt your friendly central banker will be glad to give you advice, and penalize you if you don’t take it. Telegaph journalist Ambrose is very happy with all these potential evolutions. We learn for instance, that “bitcoin is a failing experiment but its spin-off effects may change the world.” Of course RScoin isn’t actually distributed yet, but Ambrose seems confident that any central bank currency is going to be a big hit. And, oh yeah, bitcoin isn’t a failing experiment. If Ambrose wants to sell me all his bitcoin at 50% below current market price of $430 I will buy as much as he wants to offload. Here’s how he puts it: Computer scientists have devised a digital crypto-currency in league with the Bank of England that could pose a devastating threat to large tranches of the financial industry, and profoundly change the management of monetary policy. After this startling pronouncement, the article turns vague. And well it should because there are lots of problems with this idea. The biggest problem is that central banks are involved to begin with. The reason bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are doing well – and they are – is because they are NOT part of the vast Ponzi scheme that passes for Western finance. Depending on how they’re used and the precautions that are taken, bitcoin and other crypto-currencies are fairly anonymous. Yes, every transaction is public… but finding out who made the transactions can be as impossible as you want it to be. More importantly, there’s a cap on bitcoin issuance and bitcoin is not easy to come by. You have to “mine” it – solve specific equations – to obtain it and only a certain amount is available at a time. RScoin may do away with these pesky problems. Doubtless there will be no “mining,” as with bitcoin. The most obvious way to distribute RScoin will be to have people pay for it. Ambrose hints as much when he indicates that people may soon be able to transact directly with central banks if they want to use RTcoin. They can actually have an account with the Bank of England! What a super-duper thrill, eh? Of course, the bankers at the Bank of England will charge for this prestigious development. No doubt they will be the ones setting the price of an RScoin, at least initially. Later on they will hand-pick traders and run a rigged market that they will pretend is a “free” one. That’s one speculation anyway. We’ve seen it all before. Three of the main attractions of bitcoin are that it is anonymous, that it has a cap so bitcoins cannot be continually printed, thus debasing the rest of the currency stock and, finally, that it is PRIVATE and not part of the current financial system. Of course, there will be users for RTcoin, this is true. Millions and eventually billions no doubt. The same people who use Visa cards and can’t conceive of transacting outside of the current central bank economy. That won’t be everyone, though. In fact, having RTcoin will probably just validate the niche for private currencies. Short of banning private currencies outright, they will continue to grow. If RTcoin becomes popular, private crypto-currencies will probably see explosive growth. Central bankers will find RTcoin, or something like it, hard to resist because it will actually give them more control. For one thing, they don’t have to distribute it through the commercial banking system. This cuts out a middleman. Second, it may allow central banks to generate more control over the credit card sector, including cards such as VISA and MasterCard. Finally, it will give central banks more and more control over customer accounts, especially if they are lodged directly at the central bank. This no pipe dream. Ben “Broadly-Bent” Broadbent, the Bank of England’s Deputy Governor comments in the article that “the system could in principle be used to cover government services, tax collection, and benefit payments.” In other words, such a currency could advance the horrible cashless society that Broadly-Bent and other economic elites have in mind. Bottom line from Ambrose’s happy-talk article: Such a currency transfers “control of money creation from private banks to the state. Arguably, this would make the financial system safer and less prone to boom-bust cycles.” How many outright lies and fallacies can one man fit into an article?! The financial system is unsafe and is prone to booms and busts BECAUSE of centralized control of money printing and price-fixing of interest rates. Free markets (capitalism – when left unrestricted) do not require force. They do not require a central planner. That’s why central banking is actually a tenet of communism. It is communist control of the money system… and since money is involved in everything it is communism embedded in the entire economy. Complete with a PolitBureau who meet behind closed doors and decide what is best for us. RTcoin doesn’t change a thing about the current Ponzi-scheme. In fact, its issuance would make things worse. Central banks would be in charge of how much to mint and central bankers always debase. The boom-bust cycle would be unaffected. Nothing that comes out of a central bank is any good. They are simply engines of the monetary rape. In this case, the rapists see the main advantages of an electronic currency is that THEY control the results as well as the issuance. They can see your accounts and transactions records at any time and ensure that your account is made available for purposes of fines, tax collection and even outright confiscation. A brave new world indeed. Thanks but no thanks. We’ll stick with our private crypto-currencies. Of course, that doesn’t mean we’ll stop covering the broader sector of electronic money, especially if RTcoin – or some other similar facility – comes online. We’re a pioneer in this area, having recommended people buy bitcoin when it was only $3.oo a coin. Ultimately, bitcoin went to $1,000 a coin, making some of our subscribers extremely wealthy. Just two months ago we featured another evolving cryptocurrency, Ethereum, near 0.006BTC. It is currently at 0.03BTC for a gain of 400%. Cryptocurrencies are increasingly important, and you need to know about them. We made these recommendations in our TDV newsletter, where we make suggestions for all our profitable trades. We’ve had amazing success of late with our investments accumulating hundreds of percentage points to the upside. Are you a subscriber yet? Better get on board. The government is NOT going to tell you the truth. Central banks won’t either. Your financial advisor probably has no clue about any of this. And forget about the mainstream media. It’s pure propaganda, like this trash from Ambrose the shill. Turn them off. Turn us on. Subscribe HERE. Jeff Berwick

How Negative Interest Rates Will Turbocharge The Migrant Crisis

Submitted by Tyler Durden on 03/16/2016 20:10 -0400

Submitted by Nick Giambruno via InternationalMan.com,

In the 1989 Batman movie, the Joker (played by Jack Nicholson) showers a crowded Gotham street with free money. In the scene, it looks like it’s raining hundred-dollar bills. The people love it. Little do they know, the money is actually a trap. Once the Joker has lured them into the street, he unleashes poisonous gas. I think the latest gimmick to stimulate the economy is pretty much the same thing. It’s one of the most absurd ideas I’ve heard in a while. And that’s saying something, considering the outrageous schemes our economic luminaries have recently come up with, like… Faking a space alien invasion to help stimulate the economy. Minting a trillion dollar coin. Negative interest rates. Banning physical cash. Cash for clunkers. Increasing rounds of money printing, euphemistically called “quantitative easing.” These ideas would be comical if people in power didn’t actually take them seriously. But they do. It’s the same bad medicine the economic witch doctors have been prescribing for years. With a track record like this, it’s hard to imagine they could come up with something even more ridiculous. But they have. This latest gimmick goes well beyond the absurdity of their previous ideas. It’s verifiably insane. And the scariest part is, this dangerous idea is gaining currency. It’s spreading across the world like a smallpox outbreak. Helicopter Money Politicians and establishment economists call this scary idea “a basic income.” I call it sheer lunacy. It’s where the government gives you money just because. There’s no requirement to work or even display a willingness to work. You could sit at home all day, watch TV, and still get a check from the government. Simply put, a basic income is “free” money the government hands out to everyone unconditionally. European politicians are heavily pushing this policy. Finland wants to pay its citizens around $1,000 a month. The Netherlands and the U.K. have also proposed dishing out free money. In Switzerland, there’s a proposal to hand out around $2,800 a month to everyone. This one is surprising since the Swiss are generally sensible about money. The basic income virus has also infected Canada, which recently announced a pilot program in Ontario. It’s just a matter of time before the idea gains traction in the U.S. In fact, U.S. central economic planners are already discussing it. You might recall former Fed chair Ben Bernanke’s nickname, “Helicopter Ben.” He got the name after he spoke publicly about using helicopter drops of money to “stimulate” the economy. This is just another flavor of a basic income. Whether you call it free money, a basic income, or helicopter money, the idea is spreading. It’s the next potion the economic witch doctors will use once their latest scam—negative interest rates—not only fails to cure our economic ailments, but predictably makes them worse. No matter, the idea will be politically popular. Who would protest free money? And, once a country adopts a basic income, it would be next to impossible to get rid of it until the system collapses under its own weight. Who would vote for a politician that stops (or even slows down) the gravy train? The Joker used free money to lure the people of Gotham to poisonous gas. Now real world politicians are using the same trick. They’re using free money to lure the masses into perpetual dependence on government. More Problems Ahead for Europe If Europeans think they have a migrant problem now, just wait until they institute a basic income. It’s obvious what will happen… Once European governments start handing every person thousands of dollars in free money each month (more than many in Africa make in a year), everyone will be scrambling for Europe. A basic income is a sure recipe for economic disaster and increased cultural tensions. It’s an environment where blowhards and demagogues flourish. Unfortunately, this has happened repeatedly throughout Europe’s history. Once again, it’s going to lead to some very bad things. I think a basic income will greatly accelerate this recurring trend. Without a basic income and other welfare benefits, immigrants are usually skilled and the very best of people. But the average European will surely forget that once free money draws in the world’s riffraff. This is why, although the financial effects will be severe, the sociopolitical ones will be much worse. Here’s the bottom line: All you can do is protect yourself from the consequences of all this stupidity. This is a big reason why I think everyone should own some gold. Gold is the ultimate form of wealth insurance. It’s preserved wealth for thousands of years through every kind of crisis imaginable. It will preserve wealth during the next crisis, too. Unfortunately, most people have no idea how to prepare for the next economic collapse…

Gold Jumps After Fed Scales Back Forecasts for Interest Rates

Luzi-Ann Javier March 16, 2016 — 2:09 PM EDT Updated on March 16, 2016 — 3:12 PM EDT

Odds of rate increase in June declines after Fed statement Fed statement signals ``weak'' economic growth, Foster say, Gold snapped a three-day losing streak after Federal Reserve officials held off from raising borrowing costs and scaled back forecasts for how high interest rates will rise this year. The Fed kept the target range for the benchmark rate at 0.25 percent to 0.5 percent, according to a statement Wednesday following a two-day meeting. Policy makers’ updated projections implied two quarter-point increases this year, down from four forecast in December. Lower rates are a boon for gold, which becomes more competitive against interest-bearing assets. Gold has advanced in 2016 as turmoil in financial markets and the outlook for slower global economic growth boosted demand for the metal as a store of value. In dialing back rate expectations, the Fed said economic and financial developments continue to pose risks. Odds of an interest-rate increase in June fell to 38 percent, from 54 percent on Tuesday. The Fed decision “implies that economic growth is weak,” said Joe Foster, who helps manage a $575 million gold fund at Van Eck Associates. “A weak economy and the inability to have effective monetary policy creates all sorts of financial risks, risks in the banking system, risks to the economy, and those type of systemic risks are what gold rises on.” Bullion for immediate delivery rose 2.1 percent to $1,258.21 an ounce at 2:51 p.m. in New York. Before the Fed announcement, gold futures for delivery in April fell 0.1 percent to settle at $1,229.80 on the Comex. Prices rallied as much as 2.3 percent in electronic trading after the close. Prior to the Fed announcement, gold’s rally this year prompted Morgan Stanley to raise its average gold-price estimate by 8 percent to $1,173 an ounce for 2016. Societe Generale SA increased its 2016 forecast to $1,150, from a previous estimate of $1,000. Holdings in exchange-traded funds backed by gold rose 0.1 percent to 1,734.6 tons on Tuesday, near the highest level since July 2014, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. Georgette Boele, an ABN Amro Group NV strategist and third-most accurate precious-metals forecaster tracked by Bloomberg in the fourth quarter, said gold is more likely to reach her year-end estimate of $1,300 after the Fed’s statement. “I think we have seen the low and the momentum is up,” Boele said in an e-mail. “My forecasts may be too conservative.”

Richard Russell – The Key To The Bull Market In Gold & The Bear Market In Global Stock Markets

March 16, 2016

Late last year, Richard Russell gave us the key to the bull market in gold and the bear market in global stock markets. This is the second in a series of releases KWN will be publishing on the wisdom passed down from the Godfather of newsletter writers. (King World News) – From legendary Richard Russell: “I want to start this site off with a bow to Fred Hickey, who puts out The High Tech Strategist. Hickey is a prodigious worker and reads everything. Fred is a true believer in gold and I read his work carefully. …Americans are scared to death and befuddled by the news of the day. They are well aware that their own lives and jobs have little to do with the nonsense that the Fed and the government is shoveling out to them. Early Stages Of A Historic, Primary Bear Market I’m afraid that we’re in the early stages of a primary bear market. Each bear market has its method of attack…Bear markets are sneaky beasts and they like to do their damage as secretly and as unobtrusively as possible. I hate to say it but somewhere ahead, the bears going to get it all together and the innocent little stream is going to turn into a waterfall. What can you do about it? Stay out of the market? Protect yourself by remaining in pure wealth, gold. For thousands of years, silver and gold have been treated as pure wealth. As the standard measures of wealth (stocks and bonds) have deteriorated, veteran investors have forgone profits and moved their assets into pure wealth. I think the calm and easy part of this bear market has drawn to a close. We are moving into the high drama portion. Politically, I noticed a cartoon that tells a story. A hugely muscled and bare chested Putin is on the beach. Obama is sitting in the sand while Putin is kicking sand in Obama’s face. The question — how much sand will Obama eat? Chinese And Indians Buying Gold In Huge Quantities In the meantime, the story is that worried Chinese investors are dumping their stocks and buying gold in huge quantities. They are emulating the Indians, who are buying gold in huge quantities. The year ahead is guaranteed to provide surprises and I sincerely hope that one of them will not be WWIII. I think Putin will push Obama as far as he can go, short of war. But mistakes happen, which is one reason why gold is creeping higher. Breach Of $1,250 Confirms New Bull Market In Gold I use $1,250 as the point of no return for gold. If gold betters $1,250 and stays there, I think we will have confirmation of a new bull market in gold. Gold demand from China, India, Russia and other nations continues to be enormous. Chinese imports through Hong Kong in August were more than double that of a year ago. And gold withdrawals to the Shanghai exchange have been huge.” King World News note: Gold recently took out the $1,250 level that Russell warned was the key, but it has pulled back below that important target. If gold can break back above and remain above $1,250, that would trigger Russell’s bull market call for gold. This also explains why there has been such a fierce battle raging near the $1,250 zone. How did Russell know it would unfold this way?

The Government Actually has a Zombie Apocalypse Plan — and It’s Just Been Declassified

Jake Anderson March 16, 2016

(ANTIMEDIA) — A few years ago, the Center for Disease Control launched a zombie preparedness initiative that drew significant attention. The Department of Defense followed suit and developed an entire training course intended for the Joint Operational Planning and Execution System (JOPES). The complete response plan, called CONPLAN888, was recently declassified, and it’s just as weird and creepy as you might imagine. The Black Vault posted two documents retrieved from the NSA using the Freedom of Information Act. The purpose of the plan, according to the United States Strategic Command (USSTRATCOM), was to use a fictitious scenario to prepare for real-world emergencies. “[The training focused on how to] undertake military operations to preserve ‘non-zombie’ humans from the threats posed by a zombie horde. Because zombies pose a threat to all ‘non-zombie’ human life (hereafter referred to as ‘humans’), USSTRATCOM will be prepared to preserve the sanctity of human life and conduct operations in support of any human population-including traditional adversaries.” The objective of the three-fold plan includes the neutralization of zombies through “denial, deception, disruption, degradation or destruction,” though with the exception of ‘destruction,’ it is unclear what is meant by these terms with regard to fighting zombies. Reading at times like the treatment to a campy science fiction script, CONPLAN888 categorizes eight classes of zombies:

Pathogenic zombies — Zombie life forms created after infection by a viral or bacterial contagion.

Radiation zombies — Zombie life forms created after infection from electromagnetic or particle radiation.

Evil Magic Zombies — Zombie life forms created by occult experimentation, or “evil magic.”

Space Zombies — Zombies that come from space or are created by extraterrestrial toxins (this also includes Zombie Satellites that could pose a threat to SATCOM services like DirecTV)

Weaponized Zombies — Zombie life forms engineered through bio-mechanical technology for the purposes of attacking another nation.

Symbiant-Induced Zombies — Zombie life forms created after the “introduction of a symbiant life form into an otherwise healthy host.”

Vegetarian Zombies — Zombie life forms that cause no threat to humans because they only eat plant life (could nevertheless “cause massive de-forestation or elimination of basic food crops essential to humans [rice, corn, soybeans])”

Chicken Zombies (yes, this is real)— Zombies that are essentially old hens that can no longer lay eggs. Farmers euthanize them with carbon monoxide and stack them in piles; however, some of the hens are still alive and crawl out. Though they ultimately die of organ failure, chicken zombies are “simply terrifying to behold” and are likely only to make people become vegetarians in protest of animal cruelty. CONPLAN888 consists of multiple striking passages, given this is a government agency assessing a fictitious zombie uprising. More practical factors concern environmental issues such as groundwater contaminated with zombie pathogens. Other, more ominous notes, include references to the government declaring martial law within the United States. There is also a reference to epidemiologic surveillance for the purposes of watching changes in disease vectors. The government response to a zombie uprising unleashed by a nation-state, large corporation, or terrorist group includes the following additional measures: HAND SANITIZER, which, marketing materials say, kills 99% of germs (they note that hand sanitizer has never been tested on biohazard level 4 pathogens like ebola); and FIREPOWER TO THE HEAD (“the human brain will still be functioning in the zombie state, but it is universally agreed that the only part actually active will be the brain stem”). The document’s assessment of zombies states that they are “undead and thus feel no pain or fear of death, (therefore) riot control counter-measures would be completely ineffective.” CONPLAN888 references the books and articles The Zombie Survival Guide, World War Z; An Oral History of the Zombie War, and “Zombie Chickens Taking Over California,” among others.

The US military is everywhere, except history books

War defines the United States. Domestically, it is the country’s greatest budgetary priority: $598 billion, 54 per cent of discretionary spending, in the fiscal year 2015. Globally, we have more than 800 bases in some 80 countries, and spend more than the next nine nations combined. Yet academic historians, especially those at the nation’s most richly endowed research universities, largely ignore the history of the US military. This year, historians at the Ivy League schools, plus Stanford, the University of Chicago, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) – who collectively offered instruction on hundreds of scintillating subjects from Puritan New England to women in the workforce – provided just six that directly examined the US military. This is a tragedy. Knowledge is power, as Francis Bacon observed. Insofar as we neglect to study our military, we reduce our ability to understand it, and weaken ourselves. I am not a disinterested observer. Since 2011, when I received my PhD in history from Columbia University, I have taught a course called ‘Empire of Liberty: A Global History of the US Military’ on and off at the university during the summers – a survey of ideas and events from King Philip’s War in 1675 to Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan. It surprised me to discover that this was the first course on the history of the US military in many years at Columbia. It startled me even more to learn that there is little research into the history of military power at elite US universities (themselves key players, ironically, in the story: Columbia and the University of Chicago gave us atomic weapons, Harvard invented napalm, and MIT and others are major military research centres). In fact, academics nationwide often dismiss military history as the home of fetishists of suffering and antiquarians obsessed with swords, muskets and battlefield tours. ‘This gets discovered about every 10 to 15 years,’ said Brian McAllister Linn, a history professor at Texas A&M University, and a past president of the Society for Military History. In a 2007 review of the field for the prominent professional journal American Historical Review, Robert Citino, from the University of North Texas, wrote that military history’s ‘academic footprint continues to shrink, and it has largely vanished from the curriculum of many of our elite universities’. Vietnam-era anti-military protests, and a devotion to operational specifics by some military historians, are the most frequently cited explanations for this neglect. ‘Americans love a winner and will not tolerate a loser,’ the senior officer George S Patton told the Third US Army in 1944. This apparently extends to history departments. ‘We’re kind of operating still in the wake of the Vietnam War. Many academics were seared by that experience. They haven’t wanted to have anything to do with war and conflict, and link any study with condoning war or conflict,’ Tami Davis Biddle, who teaches at the US Army War College, said in an interview. In recent decades, professional historians have transformed the field by examining neglected areas of the past, from gender relations to urban history, and many others. Military historians declined, for a time, to follow their creative lead. ‘As I say, I deal in tactics,’ wrote the author Margaret Atwood in her poem ‘The Loneliness of the Military Historian’ in 1995. Ken Jackson, a Columbia historian, noted that over the years his department ‘has searched for faculty in colonial history, women’s history, economic history, cultural history, political history, African-American history, urban history, diplomatic history, immigration history, Civil War and Reconstruction history, and labour history’. But, he said, ‘I do not recall military history ever being mentioned even as an additional field.’ Times change. In his 2007 review, Citino declared that a ‘new military history’ had moved the field ‘beyond narrow battlefield analysis in order to concentrate on the interface between war and society’. So comprehensive was the change, he wrote, ‘it seems silly to keep calling it “new”.’ Within an overall paradigm of relative neglect, diverse historians now consider military events in the context of social, cultural, environmental, economic and other fields of inquiry. In 2005, the Society of Military History elected its first woman president, Carol Reardon from Pennsylvania State University. As a current indicator, the January 2016 edition of the Journal of Military History is introduced by the historians Denise Davidson, Christine Haynes and Jennifer Heuer. Meanwhile, US commanders have brought our armed forces closer to the public. Not only is the Department of Defense the world’s largest employer, with more than 1.3 million men and women on active duty, and 742,000 civilian personnel, it has also affirmatively accepted its lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender employees since 2011. Officers opened all US combat roles to women in 2015. The Reserve Officers’ Training Corps programme is now offered at every Ivy League school, Stanford and MIT. ‘I think the biggest problem we’ve got in the country is people don’t study history any more,’ said Donald Rumsfeld in 2006. Academia abhors a vacuum, and political science has attempted to fill this one. As Andrew Bacevich at Boston University observed of the consequences: ‘I tend to see that resulting in war being sanitised, robbed of context, and simplified to suit the needs of some particular model.’ From the other side of the lectern, as Biddle and Citino commented in 2014: ‘Our students’ desire for knowledge creates an important opportunity for departments of history. The late recession has produced a drop in humanities majors … University college administrators, particularly college deans and chairs of history departments, may find some relief in the appeal of military history.’ US students deserve a chance to learn about the country’s military past, given its immense impact on their lives and those of others around the world. Robust sales of books and movies on military subjects demonstrate strong interest in the subject. Perhaps by expanding ‘military history’ to a ‘history of the military’ – still more focused than ‘war and society’ courses – historians can gain enough intellectual flexibility to reinvigorate the discipline. Fortune, many historians have observed, will favour the brave.

Published: March 16, 2016

Source: MassPrivateI Intrado Communications is the company behind assigning every home a threat rating and it’s run by two former deputies, the FBI and DHS. “George Heinrichs and Stephen Meer spent 35 years building Intrado Inc. into one of the largest public-safety companies providing 911 services.” “They brought on partners who have experience in areas of public safety and technology who they met while running Intrado – from their time as entrepreneurs and sheriff’s deputies when they launched 911-services company SCC Communications Corp. in 1979, later raising venture funding, changing its name to Intrado, going public on the Nasdaq exchange and being acquired by a larger public company for approximately one-half billion dollars.” Intrado’s co-founders, (two former cops) were inducted into the Business Hall of Fame for creating a national home threat assessment program! “Heinrichs and Meer were inducted into the Boulder County Business Hall of Fame in 2006. They are serving as PSV’s managing partners and have brought on operating partner Terry Gold, founder of Gold Systems, a communications and speech recognition software company in Boulder; general partner Jim Davis, a former FBI agent…” Did you catch that? Intrado also has FBI agents helping them create a national home threat assessment program. Fyi, Intrado made $72 million from (DHS) government contracts from 2000-2016. Intrado is now a subsidiary of West Corporation who’s made over $278 million from (DHS) government contracts. What is Smart911? “With Smart911, citizens enter personal information online, which is then automatically available to a 911 call taker. The additional data provided is far more extensive than what is typically available to a 911 telecommunicator, and can include information about health, disabilities, family members or pets, and a home address affiliated with a cell phone number.” “… Smart911 is a national system that provides citizens with the ability to create safety profiles online holding personal data that is automatically displayed to 911 only during emergency calls. Information can include children’s photos, medical conditions, disabilities, home addresses of cellphone callers, or other rescue-related information…” Intrado is using clever word play to convince Americans to give police their family photos. “Safety profiles can detail medical conditions, allergies and disabilities… law enforcement can have instant access to photos of children to save critical time when searching for a missing child, or key details about a household in the event of a silent call.” Soon cops everywhere will be asking Americans to provide them with “SAFETY PROFILES“! Smart911 is much worse than giving police your ‘safety profiles’. Smart911 assigns every home in America with a color coded threat rating based on pizza deliveries! Smart911 is really about police showing up in force, when responding to anyone or anything the government deems a threat. “Based on 911 call location information, Intrado and Prepared Response (PRI) will provide real-time access to crucial information…” Click here, here & here to find out how corporations are working with DHS to create a national home threat assessment program . DHS is paying West Corp., (Intrado) $4.2 million to provide them with radios and microphones. “The order is for KNG series portable radio accessories, including batteries and microphones.” Why is DHS buying microphones, if they’re not being used to spy on Americans? West Corp., went out of their way to expand their relationship with DHS. “We are pleased to further expand our relationship with DHS. This is an agency with communications requirements 24 hours a day. Our team is committed to support that mission as seamlessly and effectively as possible. We look forward to working with DHS for many years to come” RELM President and Chief Executive Officer David Storey said. West Corp., even uses “Homeland” and a Norse mythological reference to Thor to sell its portable communications and command centers to police. It’s called the Tactical Homeland Operational Response (THOR) Shield. The THOR Shield includes a two-story, 80-foot-long mobile spying vehicle(s) that “offers public safety, homeland security and other agencies full-scale, rapid response capabilities.” “THOR Shield is a mobile communications and command center service intended for use in planned or unplanned public safety events.” What they’re really saying is, police can use THOR to spy on demonstrations. “Serving a multitude of scenarios, THOR has supported local emergency communications for large-scale events such as the Super Bowl, the Martin Luther King 50th Anniversary celebration in Washington, D.C., open air concerts in diverse locations, and many systems’ deployments and upgrades.” A statement by Intrado’s founder reveals what’s really happening. “After 35 years we like to think we understand the culture of public safety. We have developed a network, We know people and we can make connections” Heinrich said. In other words Intrado has strong connections with the FBI, DHS and “the culture of public safety” otherwise known as law enforcement. Intrado is one of 67 corporations spying on Americans communications for DHS. DHS’s National Coordinating Center for Communications (NCC) continuously monitors national and international incidents and events that may impact emergency communications. According to DHS, ” It was the private sector that first recommended the establishment of a centralized government-industry coordination center. Today, 24 federal government agencies and over 50 private sector communications and information technology companies routinely share critical communications information…” Let that sink in for a moment, Sixty-Seven American companies allegedly asked DHS to create a National Communications Spy Center! Where does the Police State stop? How long before Americans are arrested for crimes they haven’t committed yet? Cops around the country are training their officers to recognize signs of anti-government extremism and to exercise caution during routine traffic stops, etc.

The Circus We Call the Election Process!

Posted March 16th, 2016 at 4:34 PM (CST) by Bill Holter & filed under Bill Holter.

Dear CIGAs, As a rule I try not to comment all that much on politics because it is such a polarizing topic. No matter what I could say one way or the other, “politics” will turn some normally placid folks into rabid trolls. That said, what we are witnessing now has never happened before in our lifetimes and is not even about the candidates …it is about the survival of our Republic! Immediately after turning on the business news this morning, I heard an interview of a Republican National Committee member talking about “rules”. I did not catch who it was but the essence of the interview was it did not matter who had the most votes or delegates …the Republican committee would choose “their candidate” if no one had the majority leading into the convention. He was questioned with “so the will of the people doesn’t matter”? To which he answered and I will paraphrase in my own words as I understood, “it doesn’t matter who the people vote for and we will even overturn a majority if we see fit, the Republican party will choose their candidate for the good of the Republican party”. As an aside, John (buddy can you spare a Kleenex) Boehner “endorsed” Paul Ryan for presidential nominee. (Not sure I would have voted for him but I don’t recall his name on the ballot)? Upon further searching, the interview can be found here Voters don’t pick nominee, we do: GOP official. All I can say is “in your face, we make the rules, you don’t even matter”! Please understand this fully, the tricks, sleight of hand and outright lying as to our country’s condition are not working anymore. The primary voting on both sides show an electorate where a large percentage of the country has woken up in anger. It doesn’t matter if the average guy does not know exactly “what” is wrong, he/she knows it is something! Reality is so bad the “machine” can no longer hide it and the boiling point is being reached. The election looks to me as if it is going to be a referendum of the average guy versus the establishment. The danger of course is if enough “average guys” have their votes ignored they will rail against the machine. The way I see it, the upcoming election will be about the establishment retaining the control and ability to continue bilking the system or the populous rising up and taking power back. You might ask “what does this have to do with finance or economics”? In no particular order, it has EVERYTHING to do with economics and finance! Whatever happens will certainly affect the dollar (the currency of any nation is the equivalent of its common stock). Future policy will affect the dollar as well as how foreigners view what happens. Interest rates, stocks, real estate, everything imaginable will be affected. It does need to be said that no matter who wins or loses, the system is already toast and only “timing” may be altered. Most importantly I believe the only difference between who wins and who loses will dictate how quickly or severe the elimination of our civil rights and liberties will be. In my opinion we are actually watching a circus that no fiction writer could have dreamed up. On one side we have a socialist/communist running against an apparent felon. On the other side we have a populist who says whatever he cares to as long as it’s something the people are thinking, running against a hardened conservative that no one in establishment Washington likes. The odds favor a Clinton/Trump matchup. I would ask a couple of questions. What will the response be if Hillary Clinton is indicted? A really far out question would be what if she is somehow pardoned and allowed to run? On the other side, what will happen if the nomination is taken away from Mr. Trump? Or better yet, what if it is taken away from both Trump and Cruz and instead given to a “preferred” candidate? The most comical thing I can think of right now is future debates between Hillary and The Donald! Before finishing it needs to be said the old adage “it doesn’t matter who you vote for, it only matters who counts the votes” is probably quite true now more than ever before. Because of the financial backdrop I wonder whether or not we will even have an election? If the financial system were to come down prior to the election (which I believe is likely), would we have an election under martial law conditions? Financially our fate is carved in stone in my opinion, how we navigate, survive or perish with or without civil liberties is in question. As I said at the beginning, I hesitate to write on this topic because my e-mail inbox explodes with hatred. As an admission, my candidate of choice was Ben Carson. Was he most qualified? No. Was he establishment or even a politician? No. Did he have ANY experience in government? No. In my opinion, Ben Carson is an American with his country’s best interest ahead of his own or anyone else’s. He believes in God and in Christian values, whether real or not, the world would be a pretty cool place if everyone got along and acted as Christ did according to the Bible. Mr. Carson was my choice because as I see it, our “inalienable” (or God given) rights have been frittered away and we are on the cusp of losing them altogether. Maybe I am mistaken but I view him as a man of respect for everyone and their individual rights, not someone who wants control through handouts I can only pray that we as a nation can find our way back in time when neighbor helped neighbor, and self reliance and accountability for one’s actions not only meant something but was expected. No matter the outcome, this next election will be historical! Standing watch, Bill Holter Holter-Sinclair collaboration “Lucid” comments welcome! bholter@hotmail.com

By Dave Hodges|March 17th, 2016

UWEX 16 will dominate our headlines come mid-November, at the latest. To some extent, the GOP Primary, as important as it is, is serving as a distraction for a much serious situation that is unfolding in Texas. It involves preparations for mass FEMA camp incarcerations, the use of slave labor in the camps and the engagement of rogue American military units identified as hostile by this current administration. Very Few Are Paying Attention This is the story that will get no traction. Last fall, I wrote about Jade Helm 16 and how it was going to be a more dire continuation of Jade Helm 15. In late January/early February of 2016, I wrote with great specificity regarding emerging details of Jade Helm 16, now known as Unconventional Warfare Exercise 16 (UWEX 16)-(aka Jade Helm 16). Very few took notice. In the first week of February, I published several documents pertaining to UWEX 16, including the following advertisement for “role players” in this “drill”: The U.S. Army Special Operations Command is looking for role players, most with past military, government or law enforcement experience, to take part in unconventional warfare training that will happen partly in Texas between March and June, 2016. Photo: Oak Grove Technologies The reader can see that the drill apparently, at least in part, kicks off at Camp Bullis, TX., on March 21 following a preliminary set of activities. Independent Media Confirmation Seven months after mentioned Jade Helm 16 by name and six weeks after publishing documents related to UWEX 16 (ie Jade Helm 16), Dahboo777 published this video, yesterday, highlighting these same documents as depicted in the following video. Private UWEX 16 Eyewitness Accounts Have Remained Steady Since January I have received several very similar emails in the past 8 weeks which, in part tells us why we should be concerned with UWEX 16. Dear Dave, Thanks for your coverage last year of Jade Helm 15. Although I didn’t realize it then, we have a lot to be afraid of when it comes to Jade 2 or UWEX as they are calling the next phase of Jade Helm 15. I have a family member who is serving in Special Operations. We recently met with him for lunch and he was as white as a ghost. He told us that he is expected to “extract domestic terrorists and take them to an impromptu detention facility. At the facility, they are expected to train foreign troops to take over the detention of the prisoners. This is what you wrote about last summer about the Army Reserves in Michigan. His best friend is training for guerrilla warfare inside of Texas. Is JH2 going to be what all of us were afraid was happening in Jade Helm 15? Please do not publish my name or email address. It is clear that this above email is talking about FEMA camp activation with foreign troop involvement. A deep-cover source connected to Paul Martin is reporting the same thing. This scenario is very consistent with the Resettlement Army documents released in 2014. I also received this email on Friday, Feb. 5, 2016, not too long after my release of the UWEX documents. To the staff of The Common sense show: My cousin is deployed in Army Spec. Ops at Ft. Bragg. He is going to be expected to take part in guerrilla warfare drills against rogue military forces. After arriving at Ft. Bragg, he was still permitted to leave the base. We live in Texas and drove to meet him. When we went to lunch. he had all of use leave our cell phones in the car and we walked a block to eat dinner. He said that they were beginning to receive briefings about taking on rogue military units in a guerrilla war scenario. He assumes they are American military units, but they were not told that when he was presented with their newly created training specs. He has a role in this exercise, but I will not reveal the nature, as we do not identify him. He said he is being moved from one base to another base that has not yet been identified. He suspects that it is in the area because their deployment gear remains the same. He told us that he fears the drill could go live for many reasons… Most recently, following an interview with Mike Adams, on March 13, 2016, I received several emails regarding UWEX 16 including the following: Hi Dave. I just had a opportunity to hear your interview with Mike Adams. When you spoke about the military drills soon to begin here in Texas my ears pricked up. I live just a few miles down the road from Fort Hood. It is in Killeen and I’m in Lampasas, Texas. I am a nurse and work 10-6 at night in a local nursing home. This morning another nurse informed me that about 1,000 (one thousand) soldiers from Fort Hood are being sent out of the area on assignment. I asked her if she knew where they were going. She didn’t have any idea but it sure sounds suspicious in light of everything else going on. Just thought you might be interested. Thanks for all the great work you and all the watchmen do! God bless you, your family and Katy. Sent from my iPad Late last night, I received this email from a Texas resident. Dear Dave, I am going to have to be a bit vague in this email in order to protect the identity of the person that I got the following information from very recently. Governor Abbott has been having local discussions with certain people regarding the idea that Texas will secede from the Union. It is 1861 all over again. I also know that our Texas governor has had discussions with several other governors about the same topic……. Again, a deep cover source close to Paul Martin has said the same. Also, Gary Franchi of Next News Network has released the following video on UWEX 16. It is very clear that various aspects of FM 39.4, of the Army Resettlement documents are very clearly associated with UWEX 16 in terms of how this playing out. As was the case with the NAZIS, slave labor will be a part of the landscape as evidenced by the following Army document.

Appendix J

J-20 FM 3-39.40 12 February 2010

J-67.

Commanders must organize and manage detainees in such a manner as to permit the proper and ready employment of each detainee. Establish and maintain a current occupational skill record for each detainee. Include new skills as they are acquired.

Assigning individual detainees to a work detail or job on a regular or permanent basis.

Establishing vocational training projects and encouraging detainees to study and develop needed skills to the maximum extent possible.

LABOR CONSIDERATIONS

J-68.

Detainee labor may be used to perform the following:

Camp administration and installation maintenance.

Agricultural work.

Public works, public utilities, and building operations that have no military character or purpose.

Transportation and handling of stores that are not military in nature or purpose.

Domestic service

Stop! The following may contain images and messages which are troublesome to those who suffer from cognitive dissonance and corporate media group think. What lies below is more proof that it will be foreign troops killing American citizens, not American soldiers who cannot be counted on to violate their oath to the Constitution. Appendix N Foreign Confinement Officer Training Program Training U.S. Trainers N-43. Soldiers and Marines who are assigned training missions receive a course of preparation to deal with the specific requirements of developing the target HN confinement officers (i.e. foreign detention officers). The course should emphasize the cultural background of the HN, introduce its language (to include specific confinement-related terms and phrases) and provide insights into cultural tips for developing a good rapport with HN personnel. It is amazing that some still continue to deny the presence of foreign troops on American soil. It is clear that UWEX 16 will, in part, include slave labor as part of the forced incarceration of what presumably will be millions of Americans. Further, Executive Order 13603, also calls for slave labor in the camps. Let remind the reader that Jade Helm 15 was primarily about dissident extraction and incarceration, hence the use of special forces as opposed to conventional forces. UWEX 16 is about (1) dissident extraction (2) the quelling of any domestic civil unrest and (3) the obliteration of any American military unit that is not on board and opposes the subjugation of millions of American citizens. What Does It All Mean? The establishment of the GOP would rather destroy their own party than give sqmetalsup the gravy train brought to them through the free trade agreements. If it appears that Trump will be the next President, the plug will undoubtedly be pulled. The GOP leadership will be damned if they are going to give up their strangle hold on this country. They will not only ruin the Republican Party, they will collapse the country. I think a massive false flag upon the Republican Convention remains a real possibility. This would leave the GOP in a mess and from two scenarios emerge as distinct possibilities: Obama will declare martial law and never leave office and there will be no November election. Hillary Clinton will be championed by the media as a unifying force and she will assume control of the Presidency. On even a more disturbing note, these events are not confined to Texas and this will be concerned with events unfolding across the country in several locations. This is currently under investigation.

Anti-Trump Groups Threaten ‘Largest Civil Disobedience Action of the Century’

by Aaron Klein16 Mar 201622,143

With little fanfare and almost no news media attention, some of the same radical groups involved in shutting down Donald Trump’s Chicago rally last week are plotting a mass civil disobedience movement to begin next month. They intend to march across the East Coast in order to spark a “fire that transforms the political climate in America.” The operation, calling itself Democracy Spring, is threatening “drama in Washington” with the “largest civil disobedience action of the century.” The radicals believe this will result in the arrest of thousands of their own activists. “We will demand that Congress listen to the People and take immediate action to save our democracy. And we won’t leave until they door until they send thousands of us to jail,” the website for Democracy Spring declares, channeling rhetoric from the Occupy movement. The group is backed by numerous organizations, including the George Soros-funded groups MoveOn.org, the Institute for Policy Studies, and Demos. The pro-Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) 16% MoveOn.org has been playing a prominent role in organizing anti-Trump activism, including last weekend’s shutdown of the billionaire’s rally at the University of Illinois at Chicago Pavilion. Another group endorsing Democracy Spring is the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA). The DSA’s Chicago branch drove protesters to last weekend’s nixed Chicago Trump event, as this reporter exposed. The AFL-CIO, the nation’s largest labor federation, announced in a press release earlier this month it is “all in behind Democracy Spring,” perhaps indicating significant mobilization. Next month’s Democracy Spring chaos is set to begin with a meetup on April 2 at the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia. “Then, in the spirit of Granny D, the Selma to Montgomery marchers, Cesar Chavez and the farmworker pilgrimage, and others who walked for freedom, we will set out on a 10 day, 140-mile march from Philadelphia to the Nation’s Capitol,” states the website. In Washington DC, Democracy Spring expects “thousands of Americans” to engage in a “sit-in on the Capitol building in Washington DC in what will be the largest civil disobedience action of the century.” What do the radicals claim to want? Despite the fact that many of the main groups endorsing Democracy Spring are funded by billionaire Soros, the group complains that “American elections are dominated by billionaires and big money interests who can spend unlimited sums of money on political campaigns to protect their special interests at the general expense.” But if the status quo goes unchallenged, the 2016 election — already set to be the most billionaire-dominated, secret money-drenched, voter suppression-marred contest in modern American history — will likely yield a President and a Congress more bound to the masters of big money than ever before. The stage is set for a bold intervention to turn the tinder of passive public frustration into a fire that transforms the political climate in America, that sparks a popular movement that can’t be stopped. The group continues: We will demand that Congress listen to the People and take immediate action to save our democracy. And we won’t leave until they do — or until they send thousands of us to jail, along with the unmistakable message that our country needs a new Congress, one that that will end the legalized corruption of our democracy and ensure that every American has an equal voice in government. The leaders of the group have already held training sessions, the website says. Democracy Spring states it is requiring “mandatory nonviolent civil disobedience trainings twice a day for those risking arrest from April 11th-16th.” For those arrested, the group says it has already secured the legal aid of an unnamed lawyer “with decades of experience with civil disobedience cases.” “He is leading a team of pro-bono lawyers who will provide legal counsel and representation for all participants who risk arrest as part of this campaign,” the website continues. Democracy Spring is threatening “drama in Washington” that cannot be ignored: “With hundreds of patriotic Americans being sent to jail, day after day for at least a week — simply for sitting in to save our democracy — the drama in Washington will rock the business-as-usual cycle of this election and catapult this critical issue on to center stage.” The group says that it is not plotting violence. The website posts the following rules for those engaging in civil disobedience: We will use no violence, verbal or physical, toward any person. We will maintain an attitude of openness and respect toward all we encounter in our actions. We will not destroy or damage any property. We will carry no weapons or any means of physical defense, including shields. We will not wear masks or otherwise conceal our faces or identities. We will exercise personal and collective responsibility to ensure that all participants adhere to this agreement. Despite the involvement of groups active in opposing Trump, Democracy Spring’s website does not mention Trump by name. In December, Kai Newkirk, campaign director of Democracy Spring, interrupted Trump at a CNN-hosted GOP debate, saying, “The American people deserve free and fair elections, not billionaire auctions.” It remains to be seen how many people will actually turn up for Democracy Spring’s planned revolution. So far, the group only has 1,653 Twitter followers, while their Facebook page boasts 4,778 followers. The group sent out three Facebook invitations for next month’s events, garnering only 57 guests for Sit-In Day 1, 11 guests for Day 2, and 5 guests for Day 3. With research by Brenda J. Elliott.

Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards Spotted at White House After Merrick Garland Nomination

National Steven Ertelt Mar 16, 2016 | 1:12PM Washington, DC

After President Barack Obama’s nomination of liberal appeals court judge Merrick Garland to replace pro-life Justice Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court, the CEO of the Planned Parenthood abortion business was spotted entering the White House. The picture prompts speculation as to what kind of help Planned Parenthood will give the Obama administration in attempting to get another abortion-supporting judge on the nation’s highest court. A reporter or Politico took a photo of Richards entering the West Wing. Richards is on the right side of the picture in short blonde hair walking along with someone who is presumably another Planned Parenthood official. SIGN THE PETITION: Do Not Allow a Vote on Merrick Garland

NRA: Garland Confirmation Will Lead To Gun Confiscation

The National Rifle Association’s Institute for Legislative Action warns that confirming DC Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court would likely lead to a nationwide gun confiscation via judicial fiat. According to the NRA-ILA, Garland played a key role in several decisions intended to restrict gun rights to American citizens. In 2007, Garland voted to allow Washington D.C. a second chance to allow its handgun ban to be upheld after a three-judge panel struck it down. Three years earlier he voted against rehearing a Second Amendment case, Seegers v. Gonzales, where the plaintiff challenged the city’s firearm ban. Additionally, in 2000, Garland voted in favor of the federal government’s proposal to keep Americans’ private information via gun purchase background checks despite federal laws banning national firearm registration and mandating the destruction of these records. The NRA-ILA says that, “If Garland is confirmed, Obama would be taking America back in time to an era where Supreme Court justices uphold the anti-gun policies of the president. Obama is hoping Garland will overturn the Supreme Court precedent that stands in the way of confiscatory gun control, like the gun ban and confiscation programs implemented in Australia.” Australia launched a nationwide gun confiscation program of its private citizens after a gunman killed 35 people in 1996. The Australian government bought 650,000 guns, including semiautomatic and automatic rifles and shotguns, in a mandatory buyback program. The NRA-ILA’s executive director Chris Cox released a statement Wednesday on the Garland nomination saying: “With Justice Scalia’s tragic passing, there is no longer a majority of support among the justices for the fundamental, individual right to own a firearm for self-defense. Four justices believe law-abiding Americans have that right – and four justices do not. President Obama has nothing but contempt for the Second Amendment and law-abiding gun owners.” “Obama has already nominated two Supreme Court justices who oppose the right to own firearms and there is absolutely no reason to think he has changed his approach this time. In fact, a basic analysis of Merrick Garland’s judicial record shows that he does not respect our fundamental, individual right to keep and bear arms for self-defense. Therefore, the National Rifle Association, on behalf of our five million members and tens of millions of supporters across the country, strongly opposes the nomination of Merrick Garland for the U.S. Supreme Court.”

Companies Want To Replicate Your Dead Loved Ones With Robot Clones

Written By: Natalie O'Neill March 16, 2016

TN Note: If the thought of having taxidermy done to your dead pet creeps you out, how about a life-like, talking replica of Aunt Jane? Transhumanism is sneaking up on society, yet few recognize it for what it is. The quest for immortality is a primal desire of mankind, and science has tricked many into thinking that it can actually be achieved. In 2003, the wife of a 55-year-old Vietnamese carpenter named Le Van died. Heartbroken, he dug up her grave, cast her body in clay and slept next to “her” for five years. The story is unsettling, but there’s also something universal about his struggle to let go. Many grieving people feel an emotional connection to things that represent dead loved ones, such as headstones, urns and shrines, according to grief counselors. In the future, people may take that phenomenon to stunning new heights: Artificial intelligence experts predict that humans will replace dead relatives with synthetic robot clones, complete with a digital copy of that person’s brain. “It’s like when people stuff a pet cat or dog. We don’t stuff humans but this is a way of ‘stuffing’ their information, their personality and mannerisms,” said Bruce Duncan, managing director of Terasem Movement, a research foundation that aims to “transfer human consciousness to computers and robots.” The firm has already created thousands of highly detailed “mind clones” to log the memories, values and attitudes of specific people. Using the data, scientists created one of the world’s most socially advanced robots, a replica of Terasem Movement founder Martine Rothblatt’s wife, called Bina48, which sells for roughly $150,000. Rothblatt, who is also transgender and the highest paid female CEO in America, spearheaded the project to create a digital replica the human brain. She used her wife, Bina Aspen, as an early prototype, installing the real Bina’s “mind file” into a physical robot designed to look like her. Made of a skin-like rubber, Bina48 was created using more than 100 hours of audio data recorded by the human Bina about her memories and beliefs. Like the real Bina, the robot “loves” flowers, has mocha-colored skin and a self-deprecating sense of humor. She makes facial expressions, greets people and has conversations (including some awkward ones), made possible with facial and voice recognition software, motion tracking, and internet connectivity. Bina48 still has some social glitches, but she’s a working proof of concept—the firm’s almost-charming poster girl for the techno-immortality movement. She’s example of how, in the future, the wall between biological and digital worlds may come crashing down, Duncan said. “The definition of ‘alive’ may even evolve to mean, ‘as long as your essential personal information continues to be organized and accessible,” he said. A more advanced version of robots like Bina48 could hit the market within 10 or 20 years for roughly $25,000 to $30,000 for variety of uses, including replicating dead loved ones, Duncan predicted. “It will seem new because the technology will be new. But the desire to keep in contact with someone after he or she passes away isn’t new,” he said. “Anthropologically, we’ve been projecting personhood onto inanimate objects for hundreds of years.”

Not science fiction: ‘Cyborg’ bionic heart patch combining living tissue and engineered materials unveiled in Israel

By Thomas Lifson March 16, 2016

If Iran does not succeed in its goal of wiping Israel off the map, the world may be able to benefit from the stunning technological advances being unveiled by scientists there on a regular basis. The latest advance is nothing less than revolutionary. The Times of Israel reports: Tel Aviv University unveiled a remote-controlled, bionic heart patch, which researchers say could become a revolutionary alternative to heart transplants for patients whose hearts have been damaged by heart attacks or cardiac disease. The patch expands and contracts like a human heart, but regulates itself like a machine and can be paced and programmed to release drugs from afar. “It’s very science fiction, but it’s already here, and we expect it to move cardiac research forward in a big way,” said Prof. Tal Dvir, who pioneered the invention with PhD student Ron Feiner. “Until now, we could only engineer organic cardiac tissue, with mixed results. Now we have produced viable bionic tissue, which ensures that the heart tissue will function properly,” he said in a statement issued Monday by American Friends of Tel Aviv University. The Cyborg Cardiac Patch, details of which have been published in the journal Nature Materials, combines real, living cardiac cells able to expand and contract with engineered tissue packed with nano-electronics that can sense what is happening in the patch, provide electrical stimulation and — via electro-active polymers — release growth stimulants or drugs and harness stem cells. “Imagine that a patient is just sitting at home, not feeling well,” Dvir said. “His physician will be able to log onto his computer and this patient’s file — in real time. He can view data sent remotely from sensors embedded in the engineered tissue and assess exactly how his patient is doing. He can intervene to properly pace the heart and activate drugs to regenerate tissue from afar. I hope that all members of the BDS movement will refrain from seeking treatment with any medical advances created in Israel. Of course, the Iranian mullahs, and the part of the worldwide Muslim public which seeks Israel’s destruction, fantasize that the parts of the sixth-century world under Mohammed’s direct rule were the ideal state of humanity, so they would not be interested in any modern technologies produced almost exclusively by infidels. On the other hand, if a Saudi king needs heart surgery... Hat tip: Stephen Bryen and Clarice Feldman

TV: Radiation in ocean off Fukushima at highest levels in years — Out of control leakage coming from plant — ‘Big spikes’ in radioactivity observed — “Surprising… Concerning… Crisis” — 1,000s of tons of contaminated liquid being released — Scientists: Japan gov’t covering up situation (AUDIO)

Published: March 16th, 2016 at 6:29 pm ET By ENENews

KGW (NBC channel in Portland, OR), Mar 7, 2016 (emphasis added): Crisis continues 5 years after Fukushima — Radiation in the Pacific Ocean near Japan’s Fukushima nuclear plant is at levels as high, or higher, than has been measured in the past three years, as the crippled plant continues to bleed contamination into the sea, new results from a Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution research cruise show. “We think it’s related to the ongoing leaks,” said Ken Buesseler, a Woods Hole chemical oceanographer… “It’s a little surprising and contrary to claims they’ve stopped all flow. So we’re not out of the woods yet.”… Unlike Chernobyl, however, this crisis played out slowly, and continues today, on both sides of the Pacific… In October 2015, Buesseler’s team took new samples from as close as a half-mile away from the nuclear power plant. Levels there remain elevated, he said, confirming continued releases from the plant… “The fact that it’s still leaking is always of concern.” Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, Mar 7, 2016: Fukushima Site Still Leaking After Five Years, Research Shows… Buesseler [sampled off Fukushima] in October 2015… his analysis of cesium and strontium indicate releases from the plant are not yet “under control,” a statement that has been used by the Japanese government to describe the situation… [C]esium levels have remained relatively constant… “we are not seeing the steady decrease we would expect to see off Fukushima if all sources had stopped; rather, we are finding values are still elevated, which confirms that there is continued release from the plant.”… The highest level of cesium Buesseler’s team found in a sample taken off Japan in October 2015 measured 200 Becquerels per cubic meter… Strontium, too, is not falling as expected… [Scientists] have found that strontium is not decreasing as fast as cesium. Whereas there was approximately 40 times more cesium than strontium in the waters off Japan in 2011, by 2013, there was approximately 10 times more cesium than strontium The concern lies in the thousands of tons of strontium still stored in tanks at the nuclear power plant and accumulated in buildings and soils, some of it still leaking into the ocean. Scientific American, Mar 8, 2016: Crippled Fukushima Reactors Are Still a Danger… [M]ajor questions still loom today… [S]ome scientists are complaining that important questions about the disaster’s impact are not being addressed. Authorities, they suspect, are subtly discouraging certain kinds of scientific research, possibly because they fear findings that could further alarm the public… This February, the company reported a spike in strontium levels at the plant site… Remarkably, research on Fukushima’s impact on the marine ecosystem is even more scarce [than on land]—even though the disaster represented the single largest pulse of radioactivity ever injected into an ocean… [T]he cesium concentration… many kilometers off Fukushima remains well above pre-accident levels… Another concern is radioactive strontium. Scientists say levels in seawater near the plant are not declining, possibly because of recurrent leaks from the on-site tanks. “You could actually see in the ocean when one of these tanks would leak—you’d get a big spike in Strontium-90,” Buesseler notes… Indeed, unanswered questions abound… The Japanese government seems to be cutting off funds for monitoring radionuclides in water alongside Fukushima, Buesseler says… [A]nother Japanese scientist, who asked not to be named, claimed that whereas grants are readily available for researchers whose projects are unlikely to discover significant impacts from the disaster, they are exceedingly scarce for others… Buesseler reports [an] experience [when Japanese scientists who aided in research asked not to be credited in its published papers, fearing adverse impacts on their careers]… CapeCod.com, Mar 8, 2016: Buesseler says that releases of radioactive cesium from the plant are still not under control…”we are finding values are still elevated, which confirms that there is continued release from the plant.” NY Times, Mar 10, 2016: Fukushima has become a place… where they struggle to control radiation-contaminated water and must release it into the sea… [T]he plant also releases 2,000 tons of the water into the ocean every week after a process that removes most, but not all, of the radioactive particles… it is a public-relations nightmare for the government… Broadcasts: PRI | KPBS

21st Century Church - Asleep At The Wheel - Troy Anderson

March 16, 2016 Submitted to All News PipeLine by A Minute To Midnite

Episode 029 of A Minute To Midnite sees the return of Troy Anderson. Troy, along with co-author Paul McGuire recently published a Book call the Babylon Code. In this show Tony and Troy delve into the possibility of whether or not America could be The Mystery Babylon spoken of in the Book Of Revelation. One of the main focuses in this show is the role of the Church in the run-up to what are potentially End Time Events of catastrophic proportions. It begs the question: Why is the church so silent on subjects like the Return Of Jesus Christ. Why is the Book Of Revelation largely ignored? Could it be that the church is asleep at the wheel in the 21st century? Is it possible that America could be destroyed in one hour, as the Late David Wilkerson predicted? Is everything controlled by secret societies hell-bent on destruction of the nation? Is there hope for the church? Is there hope for America? If so, where is that hope found? Find out why Troy believes there is hope, and where that hope lies! Troy begins by talking about a film that he and Paul McGuire are working towards making, that deals with uncovering Mystery Babylon. It sounds like a very interesting and exciting project. Tony then asks Troy where he thinks America fits into the Babylonian system. Troy's answer is very interesting. Many people have wondered why America is not mentioned in the bible. Much of the teaching on bible prophecy in recent years has spoken of America disappearing from prominence before the Great Tribulation occurs. Troy goes on to outline why this is not necessarily so, and out lays out a case for an alternative view on prophecy that may show America is in fact mentioned in the bible. The conversation turns to global events and deals with subjects like climate change, Agenda 2030, geo-engineering. Tony brings up the fact there are calls to prosecute climate change deniers, and argues that this is a step towards totalitarian government where free speech on this subject is outlawed if it doesn't fit the "States" picture and position. About 16 minutes into the interview the conversation turns to the church. Is the church asleep at the wheel? Why are churches silent on what is happening in the world as End Time Events are unfolding? Much of the rest of the interview deals with discussion on how sleeping Christians need to be awakened. Tony and Troy talk about David Wilkerson's books "The Vision" and "Set The Trumpet To Thy Mouth", and discuss how Wilkerson warned that American cities like New York would be destroyed in "One Hour". David Wilkerson's death shocked many people people a few years ago. He fell asleep at the wheel while driving his car and was killed in the ensuing accident. Troy explains how even his death was prophetic. The interview ends with message of hope. It's not all doom and gloom for Christians however. Great End Time awakening is also ahead for many. Hope in Jesus will certainly sustain us who believe, and God will move mightily on our behalf.

Very large fireball observed over London, UK

Posted by Adonai on March 17, 2016

A very large fireball was observed over London, UK at 03:16 UTC on March 17, 2016. The event was recorded by UKMON's Church Crookham station, northeast Hampshire, England. According to the UKMON, the fireball momentarily overloaded the camera with light. "Preliminary calculations estimate the brightens to be around -7 mag and explosion -14 mag. The event lasted just a couple of seconds," UKMON wrote on their website. "With the second video we will be able to triangulate and calculate the orbit," they added. According to reports submitted to the UKMON/International Meteor Organization, the event was primarily seen from England, but witnesses from France and the Netherlands also reported the event. There was no sound associated, but fragmentation was observed by at least one person. Fireball reports submitted to the Armagh Observatory mention bright blue/pale green fireball moving left to right, visible for approximately 3 to 6 seconds and apparently in the process of breaking up. UKMON's Richard Kacerek told the BBC it was the biggest sighting they have recorded. "It lasted for a few seconds. It was seen for hundreds of miles. We have received a number of emails." If you witnessed this event please fill an official fireball report. Fireball season underway Few weeks around the March equinox is a time of the year when bright meteors appear in greater number than usual, by as much as 30%. "This could be," Robert Lunsford of the American Meteor Society explained, "due to the fact the Antapex radiant lies highest above the horizon this time of year during the evening hours." Antiapex, or antapex, meteors are produced by material orbiting the Sun in a retrograde direction that encounter Earth on the inbound or preperihelion portion of its orbit. These meteors are most likely produced by the long-period comets. This is not a true shower but an artificial radiant created by Earth's motion through space. Studies have shown that during the period from mid-February through mid-April, when the antapex radiant lies highest in the sky, fireball rates peak as seen from the northern hemisphere.1 Reference: 1 "Meteors and how to observe them" - Robert Lunsford - Springer Science & Business Media, February 19, 2009 - DOI: 10.107/978-0-387-09461-8

15 Dirty Tricks The GOP Establishment Can Use to Stop Donald Trump
by Doug Wead | 5:41 pm, March 13th, 2016
Doug Wead is a presidential historian who served as senior advisor to the Ron Paul presidential campaign in 2012.
Warning to the Trumpets. It ain’t over. It is just beginning.
Below are a list of tactics that Establishment Republicans may use to block the nomination of Donald Trump.  Yes, I know. If they succeed they will not win the White House but many in the establishment will make just as much money under a Democrat insider as they will with a Republican insider. So they may not care. All they may want to do is send the message to any future “outsider” candidate, “This is our party and you need our approval to participate. If you try to do this without us we will destroy you.” These tactics were used in 2012 to keep Libertarian insurgents from winning delegates to the Republican National Convention. The fear was that Ron Paul would be able to place his name in nomination and give a speech about capital cronyism and how big corporations use the system to corrupt free enterprise. Donald Trump can learn from our experience. What was at stake in 2012? Money. What’s at stake now? Money. But why will low level party stalwarts who don’t get that money play along and do the bidding of the big party leaders? To keep their positions as State, County or Precinct Chairmen. Power. Ego. Prestige. They want that all expenses paid trip to the Republican National Convention. Booze. Free corporate gifts. A box of Godiva chocolates left on their pillow in their room each night. They know that candidates like Trump come and go but the party infrastructure, financed by companies and their lobbyists, remain forever. Here’s what the new Trump supporters can expect. (Carefully follow the links to stories below to see the actual videos and read the details of how these things happened in 2012.)
#1) Cruz, Rubio, Kasich and Romney will cooperate with each other to help block Trump outsiders at key County and State conventions. There is nothing wrong with this. Just don’t be taken by surprise. You may have most of the delegates at the local event and still lose to this combination. Make your own deals with Chairmen and other party officials before its too late.
#2) The RNC Rules Committee will likely change the rules back to a five state requirement needed to put a name in nomination at the Convention. This will make it easier to nominate Rubio, Cruz, Kasich and even Romney. Trump operatives should block this change and keep it at eight, which was originally designed to protect Romney, the expected incumbent.
#3) Make sure that you have your own people chosen as delegates to the convention. The insiders will fight you to the death over this, saying that it doesn’t matter, that you won the primary or the caucus and so the actual delegates are bound by law to vote for you anyway. (Not true.) They will say that the governor and the senator and the old former chairman, who has been to every RNC since Eisenhower, should be able to represent their state. Be courteous  and reasonable but you also need large numbers of your own reliable Trump supporters chosen as delegates. Keep in mind, the only rules that bind the delegates are the rules of the party and those very delegates can change those rules. What if there is a media hyped Trump scandal and the party votes to “unbind” the delegates on the first ballot?  Then they can vote for whomever they wish. What if Trump does not win on the first ballot and there is a second ballot? They will then vote their real choice and you will have lost all of those states you thought you had won in primaries.
#4) The place of the caucus that selects the actual delegates who go to the district or state convention may suddenly change without your knowledge. Linked by a telephone chain the insiders will meet without you. Your folks will show up at one hotel and the meeting will take place at another.
#5) The time of the meeting may suddenly change. Your people can show up and find that the building is locked and authorities will say you are too late to be allowed in to participate. This happened many times in 2012, with hundreds of screaming voters left outside.
#6) The chairman may say “Ayes have it,” even if they don’t. This happens at the precinct, county, district, state and even national level. What are you going to do about it? Sue? Meanwhile, their winning precinct delegation will go onto the State Convention as delegates representing your opponent.
You may appeal to the RNC for justice and they may support the cheaters because you don’t have enough of your own people as delegates serving on the Rules Committee.
#7) Off duty police may arrest and detain your newly elected Donald Trump GOP officers. Yep, that happened to us. Your people may be kept for hours in jail cells and those who protest may be arrested as well.
#8) Precinct, County, State leaders may charge a last minute tax. This may have happened in 2012 in Alaska. Voters who had not been tipped off reportedly could not vote without paying $10. Credit cards not accepted. This worked so well at excluding voters in Alaska that Romney operatives used it in King County, Washington. They also turned away young people who did not appear on their outdated voter registration lists.
#9) If the Caucus Chairman is replaced or does not like the outcome of the vote they may suddenly declare the process invalid. For example, they may say that the new chairman is a Trump partisan and thus it is now a Trump event and the GOP insurance for the event is invalid and thus the meeting is ended. See the video above.
#10) State Conventions will prepare ballots misspelling Trump and then later discount them in the voting for those pledged delegates.
#11) Fake ballots will be distributed listing establishment names as the official Trump delegates, confusing the voters. They may also try to split the Trump slate by nominating competing Trump delegates with real names of public figures.
#12) Counting the ballots at the various conventions will be an exhausting business with delays, postponements until the next day, seals broken on the voting boxes, and all kinds of chicanery.
#13) They may cancel the voting due to weather in a key precinct that is heavily Trump, throwing the State. Even though the weather turns out to be fine in the given precinct.
#14) At convention you may find hotel rooms cancelled.They may arrange for the bus bringing your delegates to the Rules Committee to get lost and changes to convention rules may happen in your absence.
#15) When you leave the RNC don’t think it’s over. A Ron Paul delegate was detained by TSA at the airport leaving Tampa when bullets were found in their packed luggage. The idea is to make you so sick, so weary, so beaten down that you will never, ever, even dare challenge the establishment that runs the Republican Party again. Ever. Here is the message. It doesn’t belong to you. As in the case of the Democratic Party, it belongs to the insiders, the rich and powerful who make money from a rigged economy that favors a few at the expense of the many. Donald Trump is too independent and too unpredictable for them. You have been warned. Good luck.

US in crisis? Chiefs admit they are UNPREPARED for super-war against Russia or North Korea

US MILITARY chiefs have warned they harbour “grave concerns” over the country’s ability to fight a war against a global superpower such as Russia.

By Jake Burman PUBLISHED: 03:41, Thu, Mar 17, 2016 | UPDATED: 04:06, Thu, Mar 17, 2016

Officials admitted to a congressional hearing that they are worried about a lack of resources and training for troops – which they say would hinder America’s chances in a global super-war. The US Army’s Chief of Staff General Mark Milley told an armed services committee hearing that he had deep concerns about the military’s readiness if America was to fight a "great power war" with China, Russia, Iran or North Korea. General Milley said the army “is not at the levels that can execute satisfactorily… in terms of time, cost in terms of casualties or cost in terms of military objectives.” Air Force Secretary Deborah James – who was also speaking at the hearing – said half of her combat forces were not "sufficiently ready" for fighting against a country like Russia. She said: “Money is helpful for readiness but freeing up the time of our people to go and do this training is equally important.” Earlier this month Air Force officials admitted they were facing a shortage of more than 500 fighter pilots – a gap expected to increase to more than 800 by 2022. US military spending has rocketed since the 9/11 attacks and the country has by far the largest military budget in the world. The army requested $148billion in the 2017 budget, a slight increase from the $146.9billion Army budget for 2016. However, the budget would continue to shrink the size of the US Army, which will drop to 460,000 active duty soldiers in 2017 from the current 475,000. Concern over a more assertive Russia was highlighted earlier this month by Air Force General Philip Breedlove, who branded Russia a "long-term existential threat to the United States”.

John Kerry's ISIS Genocide Designation

03-17-2016 Gary Lane

The debate is finally over. Is ISIS committing genocide against Christians, Yazidis and other religious and ethnic minorities in the Middle East? The U.S. Secretary of State says yes. Kerry's announcement follows similar declarations already made by the European Union and the U.S. Congress. It is significant because the designation puts pressure on the United States to take action. Genocide is defined as "an act committed with the intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group." The United Nation's 1948 Convention on Genocide states that genocide is a crime under international law which signatories undertake "to prevent and punish." It does not require nations to take action, it only states that the following acts SHALL be punishable: (a) Genocide (b) Conspiracy to commit genocide (c) Direct and public incitement to commit genocide; (d) Attempt to commit genocide (e) Complicity in genocide So, what now? The leaders of ISIS and their jihadists traveling back to Europe, or any country may be apprehended, charged before an international tribunal and if found guilty, they "shall" be punished. And is it really genocide that is happening against the Christians, or ethnic cleansing? Does it really matter what we call it? The bottom line is ancient religious communities and their cultures are being exterminated in the Middle East. They are in urgent need of our protection. What does the designation mean and what now? Watch as it is explained in one minute: Former GOP presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson and others have suggested safe zones be established in Syria and Iraq to protect Christians and Yazidis from the Islamic State and other militant groups. Kerry's genocide designation may now force the U.S. and other nations to do something. It is a positive development. Unfortunately, it took months for U.S. government leaders to arrive at this conclusion. How many more Yazidis and Christians died as they awaited this genocide designation? And how many more will die as they await the genocide designation to become more than just words on paper?

Plane crashes in Russia, all 62 people on board killed

MOSCOW/DUBAI | By Lidia Kelly and William Maclean

All 62 people aboard a passenger jet flying from Dubai to southern Russia were killed when their plane crashed on its second attempt to land at Rostov-on-Don airport on Saturday, Russian officials said. Russia's emergencies ministry said the aircraft, a Boeing 737-800 operated by Dubai-based budget carrier Flydubai, crashed at 0340 (0040 GMT). Most of those on board were Russian. "The aircraft hit the ground and broke into pieces," the Investigative Committee of Russia said in a statement on its website. "There were 55 passengers aboard and seven crew members. They all died." Both of the plane's flight recorders have been recovered undamaged, the committee said in a statement. According to the independent U.S.-based Flight Safety Foundation, there was strong wind at the airport with a speed of 43 kilometres per hour, with gusts up to 69 kilometres, but visibility was reasonable. "Different versions of what happened are being looked into, including crew error, a technical failure and bad weather conditions," the committee said. It said the plane was in a mid-air holding pattern for more than two hours. The crash occurred more than two hours after the plane, flight number FZ981, was scheduled to land. Russia's Interfax news agency cited a source in the emergency services as saying the pilot changed his mind about landing on the approach to the airport. "For an unknown reason, several minutes before the landing, the pilot reconsidered and decided to make another circuit, but wasn't able to," Interfax quoted the source as saying. Flydubai's CEO Ghaith al-Ghaith told a news conference in the Gulf Arab emirate that it was "too early" to determine the cause of the crash. "We will have information about the circumstances of the incident and the black box in the future, and an investigation is being conducted in cooperation with the Russian authorities and we are waiting to see the results," Ghaith said.

Israeli Soldiers Kill Palestinian

VOA News March 19, 2016 7:30 AM

The Israeli military says its forces have shot and killed a Palestinian who attempted to attack Israeli soldiers on the occupied West Bank. The military says the assailant attacked the soldiers with a knife at Gush Etzion junction, the location of several recent attacks on the Israeli military by Palestinians. The incident is the latest in a wave of violence since October that has killed at least 188 Palestinians, 28 Israelis, and two U.S. citizens. Israel has accused Palestinian leaders of inciting young people to riot. Palestinians deny this and say they are fed up with what they call Israeli oppression, little economic opportunity, and a dim outlook for peace.

Istanbul shopping area hit by suicide bomber

2 hours ago

A suicide bomb attack at a busy shopping area in the Turkish city of Istanbul has killed at least four people, officials say. Three Israelis and an Iranian died, Turkish media reports. Another 36 people were injured in the blast near a government building on Istiklal Street. No-one has admitted carrying out the attack, the latest in recent months. The Turkish government has blamed Kurdish militants for previous attacks and has retaliated against them. Saturday's attack in Istanbul, Turkey's largest city, occurred at about 11:00 local time (09:00 GMT). Uwes Shehadeh was some 500m (1,640ft) away when he heard "a horrific and horrible noise". "People didn't know what was going on. It was very chaotic. Everyone was screaming and running away," he told the BBC. "Istanbul is on high alert and people are very worried as to what will happen next." Eleven Israelis were among the injured. Two Irish citizens, one national each from Germany, Iceland, Dubai and Iran were also wounded.

Does God Have His Hand On the Trump Miracle?

We are witnessing a seeming miracle in America with the rise of Donald Trump’s movement which is exposing the extreme exploitation of the middle class and the ongoing attempt to make America go extinct. On the way to America’s Armageddon, someone through a monkey wrench into the political fracas and America started paying attention, in big, very big numbers. And that monkey wrench is named Donald Trump. The Trump phenomenon is beginning to spread across the planet. Did you see that 3.5 million protesters are taking to the streets in Brazil? The Rising Consciousness of the Oppressed Is No Surprise to Social Psychologists As I have pointed out before, it is a well-established fact that when 10% of the people take hold of an idea, the idea spreads like wildfire. Scientists from the prestigious Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute have determined that if just 10% of any given population holds to an unshakable idea, that the idea will become adopted by the majority of the country. However, the scientists who belong to the Social Cognitive Networks Academic Research Center (SCNARC) found that if the ideas are shared by less than 10% of the population, the idea will not progress and will eventually die out. The research was first published in a peer reviewed E Journal in an article entitled “Social consensus through the influence of committed minorities. ”The finding has dramatic implications for those of us trying to wake up the sheep in this country. The SNARC scientists found that the 10% figure was applicable whether they were talking about the spread of innovations or to advance an ideal. The Manifestations of SNARC The poll of New York state, conducted by Boston’s Emerson College, has Trump enjoying a commanding lead. Trump’s only two remaining competitors in New York, shows that Trump is no longer a plurality but an overwhelming majority with 65% backing the beleaguered Republican candidate. Interestingly, the poll was conducted, March 14- March 16, BEFORE Rubio dropped out. Rubio’s continued candidacy would have clearly served to dilute Trump’s majority and this serves to make Trump’s numbers even more impressive. What is impressive about these numbers is that they following the elite’s $400 million dollars of dirt ads designed to discredit Trump. During this period, the entire leadership of the GOP has turned on Trump, yet his numbers continue to climb beyond all reason. This is due to the fact that Trump has smashed through the 10% figure and his movement, not his campaign, has taken on a life of its own as his movement is reaching tsunami proportions. This social psychological phenomenon is negating all negative politics. The yellow journalism of Fox, the contrived riots and all the lies are a waste of time. They are only serving to increase Trump’s popularity due to all the attention that is being given to the man and his message. Given my academic background, I understand the psychology at work, I am awestruck at the implications. The manifestations of the elite’s frustration is made very clear in the following video. Trump vs. the World Even globalist, Newt Gingrich, has called Trump a “natural ally of conservatism“. All purveyors of power are lining up against Trump. Is he made of Teflon, or is this a case of divine intervention? Look at the following two videos and you decide. Three Ways to Stop Donald Trump Conventional wisdom would suggest that there are three ways to stop Donald Trump: Sponsor a brokered convention where the nomination is stolen from Trump. Assassinate Trump. Bankrupt the country and start World War III. Either way, which ever side side prevails, there will be a very violent push back from the other side, particularly from the globalists. A Brokered Convention Means DC Establishment Retains Control of Free Trade and Illegal Immigration A brokered convention will be the main point of initial attack by the globalists. This is a warning that all Americans need to heed. The American people are caught in the middle of a “winner-take-all” high stake poker game. There is no middle ground. There will be no election results which could conceivable clean up the mess of the coming election if it goes the way of the globalists who desperately want to collapse the country in order to usher in a Satanic New World Order. How can I be so sure? Over the past week, The Common Sense Show and several other Independent Media outlets are scratching their heads in amazement as we watch the GOP leadership destroy the future of their party. Fox News with the extreme brand of Megyn Kelly’s yellow journalism is destroying the credibility of not only Fox News but of NewsCorp as a whole. What exactly have these entities done with regard to committing institutional suicide? The answer is so simply and so obvious, it should not bear repeating. The overriding two issues that have caught the eye of the American voter, and newly awakened millions of American who know they they have future so long as the status quo remains in place consist of the following: 1. The one-sided free trade agreements have unemployed millions of Americans and have brought untold misery, while the elite take advantage of cheap foreign labor and the “gift” to be able to ship their foreign produced products back into the country, duty free, while underselling and bankrupting even more American businesses. 2. The continued of a cultural debasement of the United States by continuing wholesale immigration which severely suppresses wages while “stealing” millions of jobs from Americans. There is a third issue that is beginning to rear its ugly head and that is the topic of corporate campaign donations. So long as we have corporate bribery of Congress, there will be no Republican form of democracy. Internationally, these strategies, through the implementation nation state central banks, have destroyed nations through back-breaking debt and have served to elevate the corporations above national interests. Does anyone really believe that the globalists are going to willingly give up the stranglehold that these bankster criminals have enjoyed for so long. The elite have two primary options which include to force a brokered convention while continuing to bash Trump in the media and instigate riots at Trump’s rallies. Conclusion As compelling as the social data is, there is much more at work here than the forces of man. This movement is resilient because of divine intervention. Your prayers are working America. In my lifetime, I have never witnessed a movement, operating against such severe odds, succeed with such vigor. I am coming to the opinion that God has his hand on this movement. Why do I believe that? Because there are too many people praying for Trump for this not to be a factor, perhaps the deciding factor. In the meantime, freedom lovers have a rare opportunity. The door is open and we need to seize this opportunity. What can you do? Pray, Pray, Pray and then act.

Beyond The Pale - Threatening The Lives Of Children - Was Hacktivist Group Anonymous Responsible For Threat Against The Grandchildren Of Donald Trump?

March 18, 2016 By Susan Duclos - All News PipeLine

It was very disturbing this morning to awaken to the news that a threatening piece of mail, containing white powder, had been sent to Donald Trump's son, Eric, along with a handwritten note demanding GOP frontrunner drop out of the presidential race or next time the powder would be real. According to ABC News the note stated "If your father does not drop out of the race, the next envelope won't be a fake." It was signed "X." The letter was opened by Eric's wife Lara and according to multiple other reports the children of Eric Trump were directly threatened in the letter. The NYPD released the following statement: “At approximately 7:15 p.m., the NYPD responded to a residential building at 100 Central Park South to investigate a report of a suspicious letter received by a tenant. The letter has been removed and is being examined by law enforcement authorities. No injuries have been reported in connection with this incident.” CBS News reported that the letter warned that "harm will come to the kids" if Donald Trump doesn't drop out. A source close to the investigation said the letter had a Massachusetts postmark and warned that if Donald Trump doesn't withdraw from the race for the Republican presidential nomination -- paraphrasing -- harm will come to the kids. The Joint Terrorism Task Force is leading the investigation, but other agencies are participating such as the Secret Service, FBI, New York Police Department and Postal Inspection Service. (Wapo) This is beyond the pale. This comes just days after the hacktivist group Anonymous declared "total war" on Donald Trump, following up with what they allege is his personal details such as his Social Security number, phone numbers, his agent's address and phone numbers, coordinates to a location in Florida, his attorney's address and phone numbers and information on Trump's children. With the information being released on March 17, 2016, we have to ask if it is a coincidence that just a day later the threatening letter and white powder was mailed to Eric Trump? Via Anonymous: "We have attached a gift, of sorts: Trump's social security number, cellphone number and other details that may be able to assist you all in independently investigating this would-be dictator," says the computerised voice. "Do with them what you will - bearing in mind that you alone are responsible for your actions," the voice instructs. According to the ABC News article on the threat to Eric Trump and his family, the Secret Service they are investigating the postings made by Anonymous with Trump's personal information. "The U.S. Secret Service is aware of the internet postings of Candidate Donald Trump’s personal information. We are working with the Federal Bureau of Investigation in this matter," a Secret Service spokesperson told ABC News

Trump Video From 25 Years Ago Will Shock You: “I’m Tired of Seeing This Country Ripped Off”

Mac Slavo March 18th, 2016

The Donald has completely taken over the news cycle. His path of victory after victory in GOP primary states has the establishment freaking out, and every major media outlet scrambling for a way to stop Trump, or at least to damage his reputation. But why is he being compared to Hitler and inducing aneurysms among the political elite? Obviously it isn’t the name-calling or fiery rhetoric that has the system’s minions losing sleep and openly-plotting his demise. No. It is for one basic reason: his rhetoric and campaign promises have centered around restoring American sovereignty. Economically, he has talked about undoing globalism and free trade, bringing back good American jobs, protecting the border (and yes, building the 10+ foot high wall) and saying no to a culture of exploiting illegal immigrant workers at the expense of American employment. Never mind if he can keep any of those promises, because just hyping them up has been enough to cause mass panic and hysteria in the corporate halls of Washington, Wall Street and the lapdog media. But what might surprise you, even shock you, is that he has been talking this way for decades. Just listen to what he told Oprah and her audience more than 25 years ago (circa 1987): “I’d make our allies pay their fair share” “I’m tired of seeing what’s happening with this country.” “I’m tired of seeing this country ripped off.” And there’s much more than that. The Daily Caller rounded up several examples of his consistent appeals for a “strong negotiator” on trade and foreign affairs. Promising to balance trade and fight for American workers is NOT what the prevailing elite – who are losing control of the political establishment – want to happen. Their plan, as voiced at exclusive think tanks and confabs like Davos, Bilderberg, the Council on Foreign Relations and many others, has been to level the prosperous American middle class and force workers in the United States to whittle their way down to complete serfdom – and absolute dependence upon government handouts and a meager place in the grand pecking order of world domination. Trump won’t be a savior, but things now are looking like they might bump him off just for even reminding the American people of how far things have fallen and little anyone else on the political stage has done to stop the free fall of the American Dream. To the contrary, most of the political tools on stage have been only too willing to play a hand in the destruction of this once strong and vibrant country in exchange for favors and kickbacks. 2016 is about one thing: how fed up and angry people are at the system which has operated on behalf of the interests of a handful of insiders and the expense of everyone else.

Powder-filled envelope sent to Trump son investigated by FBI, Secret Service, Post Office, NYPD

Published time: 19 Mar, 2016 04:04

Eric Trump, son of the Republican presidential front-runner, received a threatening letter containing a “granular” substance, and now a multi-agency investigation is underway, led by the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force in New York and the Secret Service. While a preliminary field test found the suspicious white material to be harmless, how it was allowed to be sent to Eric Trump’s luxury Trump Parc East apartment just south of Central Park in New York City is part of the investigation, the Trump Organization told ABC News. The Postal Inspector and New York Police Department are assisting the FBI and Secret Service in their probe of the Thursday delivery. Lara Trump, Eric’s wife, was the one who reportedly opened the letter, postmarked from Boston, Massachusetts and dated March 5. A handwritten note inside read, "If your father does not drop out of the race, the next envelope won't be a fake," and was signed "X," according to the ABC News source. Eric Trump, 32, is one of Donald Trump’s five children. Two days before, Eric Trump went on Fox News and talked about security concerns at his father’s presidential campaign stops. Earlier in the week, a protester attempted to rush the stage, presumably to seize Donald Trump’s podium and microphone, prompting Secret Service agents to surround the candidate and whisk away the intruder. "That's the nature of politics,” Eric Trump said. “You're at these events where you have 30,000 people in a room, you might have one crazy person. I mean, that's just the nature of statistics, that's the nature of the game." At this early stage in the 2016 election process, the Secret Service only serves Donald Trump, not his family members.

Blacklisted: Drudge, Coulter, Hannity, Carson, Breitbart, O’Reilly, Christie Make GOP Smart Set’s List of ‘Ideological Hustlers’

by Patrick Howley18 Mar 20167768

Conservative movement professionals in Washington, D.C. are plotting to form a “blacklist” of Donald Trump supporters that they can kick out of the movement, never to return. Several conservative talking heads and Beltway consultant types have been very angry about the rise of businessman Trump, who is pushing for American sovereignty, a reversal of neoconservative foreign policy, and competitive bidding for pharmaceuticals even though the drug companies that fund the Republican Party would take a financial hit. So far, anti-Trump think pieces referencing William F. Buckley have been ineffective. Memes comparing Trump to Hitler haven’t worked. So these Republicans are getting more Nixon-y. They’re coming out with an Enemies List.

LUCIFER’S FATE: THE WARS OF THE LORDS OF THE AIR

It is truly unfortunate that most of the people in the United States have been so caught up in the political rivalry, they do not know that war campaigning has been going on behind the scenes. The election process has been a very effective distraction from the looming battles awaiting us. There has always been the ever present threat of world war and the technocrats have discussed how to fight new wars with new technologies in something called a complex threat environment. A complex threat environment is technocratic news speak for political paranoia and the ideology that a war footing and full spectrum control will be needed in order to combat terrorists, foreign adversaries, criminals and violent gangs, cyber attackers and threats from outer space. While foreign intelligence services continue traditional efforts to target political and military intelligence, counterintelligence threats now include efforts to obtain technologies that would be capable of mounting an attack on both the cyber space infrastructure and outer space dominance. The general public may not be aware of a secret space program that has launched advanced technologies and payloads into space for future use in war campaigns. In the new complex environment, a world war always is on the table and if it ever were to break out we can be absolutely certain that it would be significantly different. The relatively small-scale campaigns and the “boots on the ground “strategies that the United States has used in previous global conflicts will reduce in size. While nuclear weapons and a multitude of other technologies including robot soldiers would influence the nature of a third World War, should it ever take place. Military communications are now space-based, ensuring the first battle for the heavens to ever be witnessed on the planet Earth. Cyberwar would also unquestionably be a central part of this conflict. A United States government, military and public which are accustomed to being the unchallenged superpower on the face of the planet would have to change this perception, and deal with a new paradigm in which the US can no longer automatically rely on dominating its rivals technologically. There has been a lot of saber rattling again from North Korea. Last week, Kim Jong-un claimed his scientists had developed nuclear warheads small enough to fit on ballistic missiles. The claims were accompanied by pictures of the leader standing alongside what state media said was a miniaturized nuclear warhead. He even has gone on the record saying that North Korea has a mini hydrogen bomb. South Korea’s defense ministry was skeptical about the claim, saying it thought the North had “not yet secured miniaturized nuclear warheads” and that it believes the North “hasn’t acquired re-entry technology.” I had stated on a previous article not to underestimate North Korea in the midst of “experts” dismissing the claims of a hydrogen bomb because of the apparent yield of 10 kilotons or less. The bomb while apparently being low yield could have been “boosted” using added tritium. Tritium is a radioactive isotope that is also known as Hydrogen 3. Tritium when added to a nuclear bomb makes it more energetic by boosting the amount of fissile material which goes through the chain reaction. This creates a bigger explosion. It is still lower than thermonuclear-level explosion. So in essence and in a matter of speaking, the use of tritium would also be consistent with North Korea’s claim of using a hydrogen bomb. Word of the day: Prepare! And do it the old fashion way, like our fore-fathers did it and succeed long before us, because what lies ahead of us will require all the help we can get. Watch this video and learn the 3 skills that ensured our ancestors survival in hard times of famine and war. I know this explanation may sound like a stretch but traces of tritium, used in the H-Bomb, have been detected in some North Korean low-yield tests, consistent with the creation of a super EMP weapon. We speculated during the show Schrodinger’s bomb that a low yield nuke could be sent into space via satellite and then be detonated in space above a major city. This act would be one of the many “space war” demonstrations where what happens above us could be destructive down here on Earth. After their claims of mini nukes being created North Korea launched a satellite to orbit. The satellite passed over the stadium where Super Bowl 50 was played just an hour after it ended. NORAD has tracked at least two North Korean satellites; however Kim Jong-un has reported that they have launched four. North Korea calls them “Shining Star,” satellites and they complete their orbits around the earth in about 94 minutes. Trending articles: “The 2nd Amendment Will Be Under Siege Before The Election” New Supreme Court Nominee Supports Whatever Big Government Wants Riots And Fights Over Food Started In Greece. Imagine This On A Large Scale In U.S. When People Are Starving When the Shining Star satellite passed over Levi Stadium, it was 300 miles up. If a nuclear device designed to emit EMP were exploded 250 to 300 miles up over the middle of the country, it would disable the electronics in the entire United States. Everything would shut down instantaneously. This would disable the entire electric grid. It would disable communications, it would disable fuel manufacturing and production, it would disable hospitals and medicines, and it would disable 911 call centers. Water treatment facilities and food storage facilities – everything would be gone. Financial records would be wiped out. Your investments would be gone. Your medical records and prescriptions would be zapped. Heating and air conditioning, supermarkets, telephones, and radio and television, banks and ATMs would shut down, credit cards would become useless, and hospital operating rooms would close. While vehicles made before 1970 might still work, they would be useless. That’s because gasoline could not be obtained, and newer cars and trucks, disabled by the pulse, would block the roads and highways. In most cases, the damage to chips would be permanent. Because tow trucks would not operate, cars would never be cleared from roads. The vast majority of Americans would die from starvation or disease or would freeze to death. All this from an attack delivered from outer space. According to a new article published in The Washington Free Beacon: “The Pentagon and intelligence officials told Congress on Tuesday that China and Russia are preparing to attack and disrupt critical U.S. military and intelligence satellites in a future conflict with crippling space missiles, maneuvering satellite, and laser attacks.” Air Force General John Hyten, Commander of the Air Force Space Command, said in a prepared statement for a hearing of the House Armed Service Strategic Forces subcommittee that the threat to U.S. space systems has reached a new tipping point, and after years of post-Cold War stagnation foreign states are focused on curbing U.S. space systems. There are many ways to disable or destroy satellites beyond provocatively blowing them up with missiles. A spacecraft could simply approach a satellite and spray paint over its optics, or manually snap off its communications antennas, or destabilize its orbit. Lasers can be used to temporarily disable or permanently damage a satellite’s components, particularly its delicate sensors, and radio or microwaves can jam or hijack transmissions to or from ground controllers. Hyten then reported that adversaries are developing kinetic, directed-energy, and cyber tools to deny, degrade, and destroy our space capabilities. Two massive explosions in the port of Tianjin, northern China, killed more than a hundred people and left hundreds more injured and devastated large areas of the city. It also left a huge crater in the ground. The massive destruction was caught on a cell phone and the explosions were also felt as quakes registering 2.5 on the Richter scale. The explosions took place at a warehouse at the port which contained hazardous and flammable chemicals, including calcium carbide, sodium cyanide, potassium nitrate, ammonium nitrate and sodium nitrate. Officials to this day do not know what triggered the blasts or they are not reporting it because nationals who spoke to the American press allegedly off the record claimed that Tianjin explosion was waged as an act of “kinetic retaliation” by the Pentagon in response to China’s currency war Yuan devaluation. The weapon was a Tungsten rod apparently from Project Thor a secret space weapons platform that launches large poles that when they hit the ground cause the same damage as a low yield nuclear bomb. Also read: 12 Tips to Survive The Next Economic Collapse and The Beginning of the Next Great Depression The explosion from the so called rod – destroyed six city blocks. This space weapon was of course paid for with the millions of dollars that are secretly funneled into Pentagon projects that are blasted into space during secret launches. Their payloads are classified and while the final frontier used to be a means to generate hope and accomplishment it is now that dark void that has become a junkyard and a potential mine filed for weapons and payloads for war. Now that the defense budgets have stabilized there has been a keen interest in supplying money to the aerospace industry in order to create hypersonic aircraft. These aircraft go from six times the speed of sound to more than 20. Speed gives one an advantage in battle. Recently, Lockheed Martin announced that the hypersonic air craft for space war capability could be produced for under $1 billion. A prototype could be flying by 2018. Lockheed Martin’s Orion spacecraft could someday take astronauts to Mars. After a successful unmanned test flight in December 2014, the company is building the next version for a final unmanned flight in 2018 that will go 30,000 miles past the moon. Manned flights could begin in 2021, and it looks increasingly likely Orion will first go to the moon before heading to Mars. Lockheed’s Skunk Works, where all of the company’s legendary aircraft have been conceived, is pitching the Air Force on its design of an unmanned replacement for the U-2 called the TRX. There’s still talk of a new SR-71 called the SR-72, though few details could be provided. The company’s cybersecurity division said it is now selling products that not only defend networks but can conduct offensive maneuvers against enemies. One system called Icarus can take control of an enemy’s drone and perhaps satellites. Not to be outdone, China is spending vast amounts of money on state-of-the-art technology projects, and with the potential to purchase off-the-shelf technologies as well, the world’s most populous nation now has the potential to rival even the most advanced US military hardware. Last summer, Popular Science already blew the whistle on the secret space program and that Russia, China and the United States were already prepared for a space warfare scenario and this would indicate there has always been a secret space program that would fight wars in space, but also create a cause for orbital bombardment. If we look back in history at proposed space weapons programs, we can see that there have always been plans in the works to make space the perfect place to keep weapons in order to have an advantage at first strike capabilities. About 1,300 active satellites wreathe the globe in a crowded nest of orbits, providing worldwide communications, GPS navigation, weather forecasting and planetary surveillance. For militaries that rely on some of those satellites for modern warfare, space has become the ultimate high ground. There is also circumstantial evidence suggesting that space platforms and even military outposts already exist on the moon and on Mars. “Prepare for the unknown by studying how others in the past have coped with the unforeseeable and the unpredictable.” At the beginning of this year and all through last year, there have been a tremendous amount of reports and obvious cover-ups about unusual space debris falling to Earth, UFO sightings and fireball sightings all over the world. These anomalies have been followed by unexplained explosions, power outages and earthquakes. While we have been plagued with discord here on Earth, I have been of the opinion that much of what we need to know is being played out in the skies. There are those who see them as signs and wonders, spoken of in the bible, but there is a possibility that the biblical war in heaven may be organized above us and ready for an all out cosmic campaign. Some say this as a sign of the end of the world. What we are witnessing is the end of conventional warfare and the welcoming of a space battle – with both terrestrial and extra-terrestrial foes that government intelligence is ready to reveal when the time is right to unite in a new global order.

How the GMO Debate Became a National Nightmare

A Senate battle over the labeling of products with genetically modified organisms encompasses everything from states’ rights and consumer rights to food politics and food science.

Later this year, barring some legislative maneuvering, Vermont will become the first U.S. state to require mandatory labeling of products that contain genetically-modified ingredients (GMOs). The argument that led to the passage of the requirement is that consumers ought to “know what’s in their food.” As Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin put it last week, “We already require food companies to label nutritional values such as calories or sugar content and to include an ingredient list.” His message was given a boost by Bernie Sanders, his fellow Vermonter and presidential hopeful: The reason that Shumlin and Sanders are speaking out is because this week the Senate will likely vote on a measure that could render Vermont's mandate moot. The bill, sponsored by Pat Roberts, chairman of the Senate Agricultural Committee, would create an USDA-administered voluntary-labeling system as well as bar the labeling of goods by individual states. You can tell a strange political moment is unfolding when Republicans are rallying against the rights of states to pass their own laws without federal interference. But such is the one of the sharpest and most hysterical national food debates. The battle over GMOs encompasses some of our worst political instincts. The public overwhelmingly fears GMOs and supports labeling. Owing to its partisan nature, the bill to be debated has been given two names: the Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act (SAFE), by those against mandatory labeling, and Deny Americans the Right to Know Act (DARK), by those who support labeling. (Making matters worse, there is also a competing bill that would try to split the difference between supporting state-mandated labeling and attempting to limit label confusion on the national level.) An informal consortium of government organizations and science academies say that genetically modified foods pose no health threat to consumers and yet their interests are associated with pernicious-seeming big agricultural stalwarts like Monsanto and ConAgra. Meanwhile, the FDA isn’t so sure about the environmental impact of genetically engineered crops, which is a different issue altogether that is being lumped within the conversation. In July 2015, my colleague James Hamblin presented this sweeping rebuke of the efforts to force labeling. People who object to genetic modification—either because of concerns about the prudence of introducing certain crops into certain ecosystems, or because of patent laws and corporate business practices, or because these people are among the majority of Americans who now believe any and all “genetically modified” foods to be inherently unhealthful to consume (despite assurances to the contrary from The World Health Organization, Food and Drug Administration, American Medical Association, National Academy of Sciences, and American Association for the Advancement of Science, among others)—can continue to pay premiums for products that are marketed as “GMO free,” which implies health and safety, even while the implication is without merit. According to those monitoring potential votes, it’s looking close, particularly with at least two Republican senators, Ted Cruz of Texas and Marco Rubio of Florida, likely out on the presidential campaign trail.

Health Ranger releases stunning infographic showing how heavy metals end up in the food supply due to industrial pollution

Friday, March 18, 2016 by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger

(NaturalNews) You've probably heard food companies and nutritional supplement manufacturers claim that high levels of lead found in their products is "naturally occurring." But they're LYING. The truth is that high levels of toxic heavy metals show up in foods, superfoods and supplements due to industrial pollution... including decades of spraying lead arsenate on croplands. Today, I'm releasing a new infographic that reveals the cycle of heavy metals in food and the environment. Click here for the full infographic, or click here for my Youtube video explanation. As this infographic and video both reveal, toxic heavy metals enter the food supply from contaminated soils, and soils are contaminated from a multitude of sources, including:

• Dental offices (mercury)

• Coal power (mercury)

• Pesticides (lead and arsenic)

• Mining operations (copper, nickel, lead, etc.)

• Human waste that's recycled by cities into "biosolids" used on crops

• Contaminated municipal water pipes (lead)

• Chicken feed that's "medicated" with arsenic

Get the full story on heavy metals in food in my upcoming book "Food Forensics" ... available now on Amazon and BN

Radioactivity in New Jersey's water not a health concern for residents: Indian Point plant in Buchanan JUST 40 miles (65 km) north WAS LEAKING RADIOACTIVE MATERIAL INTO THE HUDSON!

Friday, 18 March 2016

Photo blog.geogarage.com  Sent in by Francis After the long ongoing travesty of justice with Michigan’s Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) who stand accused of ignoring months of concerning reports on the amount of lead in Flint’s drinking water, with the brown liquid reportedly making residents’ hair fall out and causing rashes on their skin. Now New Jersey is the latest state with after nine trailers of construction debris were shipped back to a Shafto Road demolition and recycling center after the material set off radiation detection tests at a Pennsylvania landfill. The likely cause is "naturally occurring radioactivity" from New Jersey's water, and is not a health concern for residents nearby, a New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection spokesman said. "It's not an emergency situation whatsoever," DEP spokesman Larry Hajna said. However, what Larry Hajna does not mention is the problematic Indian Point plant in Buchanan, about 40 miles (65 km) north of New York City on the east bank of the Hudson River which is leaking radioactive material into the river at alarming levels! Indian Point has previously had a problem with the release of radioactive water, and the levels of radioactivity reported by the company in February were much worse than in past incidents. One monitoring well showed a nearly 65,000 percent spike in radioactivity, from 12,300 picocuries per liter to more than 8 million picocuries per liter, The testing equipment at Grows Landfill in Morrisville, Pennsylvania detected thorium 232 in the material that had been shipped by the nine trailers from Mazza Demolition and Recycling, a Tinton Falls material recovery facility. That caused the debris to be sent back to Tinton Falls. Officials from Mazza did not return calls for comment. The debris is the innards of an electric cogeneration plant's cooling tower that was demolished in Lakewood, Hajna said. The material was once part of a plastic, honeycomb structure that helped the plant recirculate water and steam in the cooling tower. After years of circulating local ground water, the plastic retained some of the naturally-occurring radium from the water. New Jersey environmental officials are well aware of radioactivity in ground water and test it regularly to make sure its safe for residents, Hajna said. Mountains in the northern part of the state have naturally occurring radioactive rocks. Over geologic time, the rocks broke down and ended up in ground water in certain parts of the state. It's also common for radioactive material from construction demolition to be rejected by landfills, Hajna said. Smoke detectors, which contain small amounts of radioactive material, are often the culprit. Mazza hired a consultant to determine the source of the material, Hajna said. Ultimately, the material could end up back at Grows Landfill because the radiant is naturally-occurring, he said. If not, it would need to go to a special landfill that handles such material.

The FCC’s Plan To Take Over The Internet Has Begun

3/18/2016 3:48 PM EST JOHN MERLINE | john.merline@investors.com |

Reprints “It’s not a government takeover of the Internet.” That was the mantra of those who backed the Federal Communication Commission’s “net neutrality” rules, which the FCC approved a little over a year ago. “Not only are the new rules not a government takeover,” argued one supporter in Variety, “they are well in keeping with how communications have been successfully fostered and regulated in America in the past.” The rules were only meant to keep the Internet “free and open,” advocates said. All the government was doing was blocking ISPs from discriminating against users by charging more for faster speeds. But to impose “net neutrality,” the FCC reclassified the Internet so that it could regulate it in the same way it regulated the telephone monopolies. FCC chairman Tom Wheeler promised that — despite the fact the FCC had just granted itself wide-ranging control over ISPs — it would use a “light touch” when it came to regulating ISPs. But now, 12 months later, the FCC tipped its heavy hand with a proposal for a new set of regulations that could, as the Morning Consult put it, “reshape the tech industry.” The proposed new rules don’t have anything to do with “net neutrality.” They are about privacy. Now that the FCC can do so, Chairman Tom Wheeler has decided that the government should impose what it determines are the appropriate privacy protections on all Internet service providers. On the surface, the purpose of the rules seems perfectly reasonable. “Consumers should have effective control over how their personal information is used and shared by their broadband service providers,” Wheeler says. In practice, however, it would anything but simple or straightforward. As the Morning Consult notes, “the impact of new FCC rules on the industry would be huge.” For one thing, a new set of FCC rules would conflict with long-standing privacy rules set by the Federal Trade Commission. Data-hogging websites sites wouldn’t have to comply with the stricter FCC rules. In a letter to the FCC, various “consumer advocacy” groups said those FTC rules aren’t good enough, and want the commission to “exercise the full extent of its rule-making authority to protect consumer privacy.” Industry groups say the result would be “regulatory chaos” as businesses try to figure out what rules apply where. The point is that anyone who thought the FCC had finished its work when it imposed “net neutrality” is sorely mistaken. The commission’s privacy rules will only be the first of many as regulators flex their newly acquired Internet muscles and as advocacy groups, well-connected businesses, or anyone looking to get a regulatory leg up on the competition will be pressuring the commission to add new rules, always wrapped in a “good for the consumer” package. Further intrusion into the ISP world will only worsen the damage already being done by the FCC’s decision to treat the 21st century Internet like a 20th century telephone monopoly. As FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai explained in a recent speech at the Heritage Foundation, in just the first year, “growth in broadband investment has flat-lined,” and smaller ISPs “have reduced investment in the communities they serve.” As an example, he noted that Verizon (VZ) recently decided to acquire AOL for $4.4 billion because “it made more sense than increasing fiber deployment.” Pai, who fiercely opposed the FCC’s actions, says home broadband adoption has declined for the first time “since the advent of the commercial Internet.” He notes that the rule is hampering innovative services like T-Mobile’s (TMUS) Binge On program, which lets customers stream videos without it counting against their data usage. Despite the obvious consumer benefit, the FCC thinks Binge On might violate the government’s new Internet “conduct standard,” and so has opened an investigation. “At least three other companies have received similar treatment,” Pai noted. Pai and others had warned about all these outcomes from the get go. Those who are surprised by the FCC’s actions over the past year have only themselves to blame.

3/18/2016 — Noteworthy M5.2 earthquake strikes Pacific Northwest Coast / Vancouver Island

March 18, 2016 Michael Janitch

A noteworthy M5.2 earthquake has struck off the shores of Vancouver Island BC in the Pacific Northwest. The earthquake occurred off the West coast of Vancouver along the Seminole Seamount, which is part of the Cascadia subduction zone. This larger earthquake comes to the area after several weeks (months) without any activity above M5.0 at this particular location. There were preceding earthquakes which struck over the past 2-3 days down the West coast of the United States which pointed towards this M5.2 event today. Over the past few days we saw multiple dormant volcanoes being hit by M3.0+ earthquakes, we saw the USGS literally omit an earthquake which struck at Mount Rainier (nearby this new M5.2 earthquake location). Additionally, we saw multiple oil + gas pumping operations being struck by M2.0+ activity throughout California. Finally, yesterday (March 17) reports came in along the West coast of Southern California saying a strong sulfur / ‘rotten egg’ smell was blowing in from offshore. The sufuric smells could be a warning sign of building stresses on the West coast of the United States. This M5.2 is proof the stress is indeed present. We now need to be on watch in adjacent areas to this M5.2, especially to the EAST along the edge of the craton. From Idaho, to Arizona, and from Colorado to the East coast New England…. expect a new round of larger fracking earthquakes along the edge of the craton as well as dormant volcanoes at the border of California to begin moving soon.

2016 Prophetically Significant?

March 17, 2016 by SkyWatch Editor By Dr. Thomas R. Horn, SkyWatch TV CEO

Recently I sat down with SkyWatch TV hosts Derek and Sharon Gilbert to make our television audience aware of the most mysterious facts involving how, over millennia prophets and seers from various cultures looked forward to the year 2016 specifically as a time when supernatural events would give rise to the Antichrist, Jewish Messiah, or Second Coming of Jesus Christ. Some of these predictions were hundreds of years old, others thousands of years, and from people groups that had no known method of communicating with one another. Researching this phenomenon almost a decade ago, I eventually published what some consider my Magnum Opus—the book Zenith 2016. The concept was simple; to ask ‘why’ so many saw this year we’ve entered as pivotal, and to watch whether or not they were correct in their predictions. In general, the excitement (or dread, as the case may be) surrounded a variety of prognostications made by ancient sources concerning a portentous moment in time. Mankind would enter 2016 on course toward unprecedented global upheaval, according to these prophets, when the Earth, and all life upon it, would undergo apocalyptica marked by the sun rising in Sagittarius, the centaur with a bow—the symbol for Nimrod coming out from the mouth of Leviathan and the sun “god” rising again—Nimrod/Osiris/Apollo. For instance, the “Cherokee Rattlesnake Prophecies,” also known as the “Chickamaugan Prophecy” or the “Cherokee Star Constellation Prophecies,” are part of a series of apocalyptic prophecies made by members of the Cherokee tribe during 1811–1812. Their divinations were very similar to Mesoamerican belief, and are viewed by scholars as likely referring to the return of Quetzalcoatl around 2016. Some of the other noteworthy “seers” of 2016’s prophetic significance came from ancient Rabbis and even protestant Christians. Some examples from the book Zenith 2016 include: Prophecy from the Zohar on Messiah’s Return Widely considered the most important work of Jewish Kabbalah, the Zohar is a collection of books written in medieval Aramaic over seven hundred years ago containing mystical commentary on the Pentateuch (five books of Moses, the Torah). In addition to interpreting Scripture, the Vaera section (volume 3, section 34) includes, “The signs heralding Mashiach,” or, “The coming of the Messiah.” This text describes how the Messiah would appear privately to Israel’s Rabbis and then slowly begin making himself know to the world in the years following. The fascinating date for his manifestation to Jewish religious leaders was set in the Zohar for 2012–2013. Given the rejection of Jesus by orthodox Jews as Messiah, this seven-hundred-year-old prediction indicates the Antichrist “arrived” circa 2012–2013. Several top Rabbis in Israel have said in recent days the Messiah is here and is about to make himself known. The Eight-Hundred-Year-Old Prophecy of Rabbi Judah Ben Samuel Will the years immediately following 2016 be prophetically important for Israel and the world? Some have noted when seventy years (what some consider a biblical generation) is added to 1948—the year Israel was formally recognized as an independent nation by the United Nations—it brings us through the year 2018. Does this mean the year 2019—exactly seven years after 2012—would mark the year that Jesus Christ returns with the armies of heaven to establish His rule over Earth? According to an eight-hundred-year-old prophecy, it certainly could. Before he died of cancer, J. R. Church analyzed the ancient predictions of Rabbi Judah Ben Samuel and noted: Ludwig Schneider, writing for Israel Today (March 2008) said, “Some 800 years ago in Germany, Rabbi Judah Ben Samuel was a top Talmudic scholar with an inclination for the mystical. Before he died in the year 1217, he prophesied that the Ottoman Turks would conquer Jerusalem and rule the Holy City for ‘eight Jubilee Years.’” A biblical Jubilee year consists of 50 years. Fifty multiplied by eight equals 400 years. Afterwards, according to Ben Samuel, the Ottomans would be driven out of Jerusalem, which would remain a no-man’s land for one Jubilee year. In the tenth Jubilee year [2017]…the Messianic end times would begin.… Looking back at Ben Samuel’s prediction, we should note that the Ottoman Empire did conquer Jerusalem in 1517, exactly 300 years after the rabbi’s death, and was defeated 400 years later in 1917. In Israel Today, Ludwig Schneider continues, “This came to pass 300 years after Ben Samuel’s death. He could not have based this prophecy on events that could be foreseen, but only on the results of his study of the Bible. According to Leviticus 25, the nation is reunited with its land in the year of Jubilee. Therefore, the Jubilee year plays an important role in Israel’s history. In this case, the Jubilee began with the defeat and conquest of the Mamelukes in Jerusalem by the Ottoman Kingdom in 1517. The Turks reigned over Jerusalem until the British General Edmund Allenby defeated them exactly eight Jubilees later in 1917. “Ben Samuel’s prophecy was fulfilled precisely because 1517 to 1917 is exactly 400 years. Afterward, Jerusalem was a no-man’s land for 50 years during the time of the British Mandate (1917–1967) and the time of Jordanian rule (1947–1967), another Jubilee year. During the Six Day War in 1967, Israel captured Jerusalem from Jordan and the city returned to the Jewish people after nearly two millennia of exile. After that, the countdown for the Messianic age began.” Schneider assumes that since Rabbi Judah Ben Samuel’s prediction appears to be fulfilled to date, then 2017 should launch the beginning of the Messianic era.[i] Protestant Reformers and the Year 2016 Among the turn-of-the-century protestant reformers, there were an astonishing number of theologians that believed the False Prophet and Antichrist would take the stage in 2016! The famous preacher Jonathan Edwards was convinced of this possibility and held a postmillennial view based on the twelve hundred and sixty days the woman is in the wilderness in Revelation 12:6. He interpreted those days as the years that the true Church was to be oppressed by the papists. Clarence Goen writes of this, “Edwards considered that the most likely time for the…reign of Antichrist was 1260 years after AD 756 (the acceding of temporal power to the Pope),”[ii] which would place the apex of Antichrist’s power squarely in 2016. When we were doing research for the book, Petrus Romanus: The Final Pope Is Here, we learned of this belief by Edwards and sought to verify it by examining a collection of his personal voluminous writings. We found confirmation within a series of his sermons, preached at Northampton, Massachusetts in 1739, on how history and prophecy coincide. As Cris Putnam endeavored to demonstrate in our book Petrus Romanus, the pope’s rise to temporal power began when Pope Stephen began courting Pepin around 751 and then became a reality in 756 with the expulsion of the Lombards. Putnam quickly broke out his calculator and saw that 756 placed the target sometime in 2016 which can also be thought of as in the range of three and a half years from 2012. Around that same time during our investigation, we became aware of a sermon collection from the 1800s, titled, “Lectures on the Revelation,” by the Reverend William J. Reid, pastor of First United Presbyterian Church in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, which were given over a period of time ending in March of 1876. Like Jonathan Edwards had over a hundred years earlier, Reid deduced the False Prophet and Antichrist would arrive sometime around 2016. Soon we uncovered numerous other turn of the century examples in which the year 2016 specifically was foreseen as when the False Prophet and the Antichrist would appear, followed by the destruction of Rome. These included: The Theological Dictionary of Princeton University (1830) Critical Commentary and Paraphrase on the Old and New Testament by Lowth and Lowman (1822) The American Biblical Repository (1840) Notes on the Revelation of St. John by Lowman (1773) The Christian Spectator, “The Monthly” (1885) Abridgement of Ecclesiastical History (1776) The Works of the Rev. P. Doddridge, DD (1804) The International Sunday School Lessons Pub (1878) Character and Prospects on the Church of Rome in Two Discourses by the Rev. William Mackray (1829) The Panoplist and Missionary Magazine (1809) Lectures on Romanism by Joseph F. Berg (1840) The Congregational Magazine for the Year (1834) The Presbyterian Magazine (1858) For a complete list of numerous other ancient citations fixed on 2016 as that moment when Antichrist would take the world stage, we recommend the book Zenith 2016. Whether or not all these Christian and non-Christian seers were right will be known very soon.

SPECIAL EDITOR’S NOTE TO FRIENDS OF SKYWATCH: As some of you know, Tom Horn is on network television this week talking about the dozens of ancient seers that foresaw the year 2016 specifically as the time when the Antichrist and False Prophet would arrive.

Riots And Fights Over Food Started In Greece. Imagine This On A Large Scale In U.S. When People Are Starving Dozens of migrants are rioting over free food handed out outside a football stadium in Greece, with reports of injuries near the Piraeus port where nearly 5,000 migrants are living at the passenger terminals. Local Greek media reports state that rioting began shortly after 7pm, when around 30 people started fighting each other while lining up to receive free food from the Olympiakos Football Club. Piraeus Port Authority coast guard officers attended the scene to separate Afghan and Syrian migrants fighting each other. The news comes on the same day of reporting migrant-on-migrant stabbings in the area. The incident has occurred just 24 hours after movie star Angelina Jolie was caught in a crush of around 4,000 people wanting to see her visiting migrants in the port of Piraeus. ekathimerini.com reports: Three men received non-life threatening stab wounds during a brawl between Afghan refugees at Piraeus port early on Thursday morning. Port authorities have launched an investigation into the incident that involved around 20 asylum seekers in a passenger terminal that is being used as a refugee shelter. Word of the day: Prepare! And do it the old fashion way, like our fore-fathers did it and succeed long before us, because what lies ahead of us will require all the help we can get. Watch this video and learn the 3 skills that ensured our ancestors survival in hard times of famine and war. Now imagine this on a large scale here in U.S. There are so many events that can cause a food shortage even in a country as U.S Also read: Food shortage occurs when food supplies within a bounded region do not provide the energy and nutrients needed by that region’s population. Food shortage is most easily conceptualized as a production problem – not enough food is grown to meet regional needs – but constraints on importation as well as storage can also cause or contribute to food shortage. Food shortage is also created where food is exported from areas where production is adequate or even abundant. Historically, the great hunger of Ireland (1845-1847) and the famine of Bengal (1944) have been attributed more to British political decisions to export locally produced grain supplies without compensating imports than to production shortfalls per se (Woodham-Smith 1962; Sen 1981). Even when production shortfall is the primary cause of insufficient supply, the ecological and political reasons for production problems vary widely. They range from natural disasters such as drought, flood, or fungus, to political disasters such as civil conflict, terrorist attack, to misguided economic policies such as price controls- all of which discourage production of essential foods. Trending articles: 7 Signs of a U.S. Economic Collapse in 2016 How To Survive In The City When Disaster Strikes So let me give you one clear example of what can happen and how a nation like U.S can fall in short time. I guarantee that most ordinary folks have no idea that if trucks stopped rolling all across America, within a short period of time nearly all Americans would be in a life-threatening situation from major delivery shortages. 70% of all freight that is moved in the U.S. is done so by truck. You (we) depend on that ‘stuff’ for our survival. A major disruption in truck travel would immediately impact seven major industries, and would bring America to its knees within days due in part to “Just-In-Time” manufacturing, zero-inventory, and the fact that our modern way of life is entirely dependent upon unimpeded distribution chains. IMPACT TIMELINE IF TRUCKS STOPPED ROLLING The first 24 hours

• Delivery of medical supplies to the affected area will cease.

• Hospitals will run out of basic supplies such as syringes and catheters

within hours. Radiopharmaceuticals will deteriorate and become

unusable.

• Service stations will begin to run out of fuel.

• Manufacturers using just-in-time manufacturing will develop component

shortages.

• U.S. mail and other package delivery will cease.

Within 48 hours

• Food shortages will begin to develop.

• Automobile fuel availability and delivery will dwindle, leading to skyrocketing

prices and long lines at the gas pumps.

• Without manufacturing components and trucks for product delivery,

assembly lines will shut down, putting thousands out of work.

Within 72 hours

• Food shortages will escalate, especially in the face of hoarding and

consumer panic.

• Supplies of essentials—such as bottled water, powdered milk, and

canned meat—at major retailers will disappear.

• ATMs will run out of cash and banks will be unable to process

transactions.

• Service stations will completely run out of fuel for autos and trucks.

• Garbage will start piling up in urban and suburban areas.

• Container ships will sit idle in ports and rail transport will be disrupted,

eventually coming to a standstill.

Waste Removal

•Within days, America will be buried in garbage, presenting an enormous health hazard.

Within a week

• Automobile travel will cease due to the lack of fuel. Without autos and

busses, many people will not be able to get to work, shop for groceries,

or access medical care.

• Hospitals will begin to exhaust oxygen supplies.

Within two weeks

• The nation’s clean water supply will begin to run dry.

Within four weeks

• The nation will exhaust its clean water supply and water will be safe for drinking only after boiling. As a result gastrointestinal illnesses will increase, further taxing an already weakened health care system.

It’s all pretty scary. The ripple effects would be severe, the specifics of which are far too many to list here. You may be of the opinion that something like this could or would never happen. You would be wrong to think that. Don’t let your normalcy bias get in the way of critical thinking. Think about it. Watch the video and watch the people killing each other for food, read the timeline again. Are you prepared? If not I urge you to do something about it. Don’t be part of that mob that will kill each other over a can of tuna. Make a food supply and save you and your family from starvation for as long as you can. “Prepare for the unknown by studying how others in the past have coped with the unforeseeable and the unpredictable.”

At least 31 killed in terror attacks at Brussels airport, Metro station

Published March 22, 2016 FoxNews.com

As many as 31 people were killed and more than 180 injured as coordinated terrorist bombings rocked the Brussels airport and subway system during rush hour Tuesday morning in the Belgian capital. Two bombings at Zaventem Airport, where 11 people were reportedly killed, and another at the metro station in the Maelbeek section near the European Union headquarters, where the mayor's office said 20 were killed, were almost immediately confirmed as terrorism. The attack at the airport was reportedly accompanied by shouts in Arabic and gunfire, and an unexploded suicide belt was reportedly found in the aftermath. "What we feared has happened, we were hit by blind attacks," said Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel. "We are at war,” French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said Tuesday. “We have been subjected for the last few months in Europe to acts of war." The attacks, which Belgian authorities said were suicide bombings, came four days after the main suspect in the November Paris attacks was arrested in Brussels, and even as Brussels was braced for new attacks. There was no immediate claim of responsibility. A source told Fox News that a credible ISIS social media account posted the message, “Mosul revenge for the Kuffar capital Brussels,” but it was not definitive that the terror group was behind the attacks. The first two explosions rocked the departure hall at the Brussels airport shortly after 8 a.m. local time. Early reports placed the number of dead at 13, with as many as 81 wounded, although the death toll was later revised downward to 11. Witnesses told The Associated Press that one occurred at an American Airlines counter and the other near a Starbucks cafe. American Airlines said in a statement that none of its employees were among the dead or injured and later tweeted from its verified account that the blast did not occur at its check-in row. “There were two explosions in the departure area, one probably caused by a suicide bomber," said Belgian federal prosecutor Frederic Van Leeuw of the attack on the airport. One of the airport bombs may have been in a suitcase, a U.S. official told The Associated Press, and local TV reported that it may have been loaded with nails. Witnesses recounted a harrowing and chaotic scene. “First there was one explosion. Everyone started to run and panic broke out. Then a second explosion was heard,” one witness told The Brussels Times about the airport explosion. Zach Mouzoun, who arrived on a flight from Geneva about 10 minutes before the first blast, told BFM television that the second, louder explosion brought down ceilings and ruptured pipes, mixing water with blood from victims. "It was atrocious. The ceilings collapsed," he said. "There was blood everywhere, injured people, bags everywhere." "We were walking in the debris. It was a war scene," he said. etc. and the news story continues..

The Latest: Islamic State group claims Brussels attacks

March 22, 2016 10:43 AM The Associated Press

BRUSSELS The Latest on explosions at Brussels airport and metro station (all times local): 4:40 p.m. The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for the attacks in Brussels, saying its extremists opened fire in the airport and "several of them" detonated suicide belts. The posting in the group's Amaq news agency said another suicide attacker detonated in the metro. The posting claimed the attack was in response to Belgium's support of the international coalition arrayed against it. 4:25 p.m. People can start moving around Brussels once more after being told to stay in place for hours after bombing attacks Tuesday morning at the airport and on a subway station. Peter Mertens of the Belgian crisis center says "the threat is still real and serious" of more attacks. But he says air traffic at Brussels' Zaventem airport "remains closed for the day under any circumstance" but people in the Belgian capital can start walking outside again and train stations are reopening. At least 31 people were killed and nearly 190 wounded Tuesday after bombs went off in Brussels airport.

Why Brussels? Belgian capital no stranger to terror

Jane Onyanga-Omara, USA TODAY 11:53 a.m. EDT March 22, 2016

The Belgian capital is no stranger to associations with terror, with tensions heightened following the devastating attacks in Paris in November that killed 130 people. Explosions at Brussels' airport and at a downtown metro stop killed at least 31 people and wounded scores of others on Tuesday. Belgium's federal prosecutor confirmed that the explosions were terrorist attacks. The Islamic State claimed responsibility, SITE a U.S.-based organization that monitors terrorists' activities online reported. The blasts came days after terrorism police raided an apartment in the Brussels suburb of Molenbeek, leading to the arrest Friday of Salah Abdeslam, a suspect in the Paris attacks on the run for four months, and two other suspects. Abdeslam went on the run after terrorists launched the attacks at cafes, a rock concert and a stadium in the French capital. The Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL, claimed responsibility. Several of the Paris attackers lived in the Molenbeek neighborhood and police have carried out regular raids there in the aftermath of the assaults. On March 15, Brussels police said a suspect was killed during an anti-terror raid on a home in the southern suburb of Forest and at least one gunman was on the run. AFP said the raid was aimed at people connected to one or several of the 11 Belgians who were charged in the Paris attacks. In December, investigators found Abdeslam’s fingerprint as well as three belts that could be used to carry explosives during a search of an apartment in the Schaerbeek neighborhood of Brussels. Belgian officials said it was likely used as a bomb factory in the Paris attacks and as a hideout by Abdeslam. Authorities appear to have focused predominantly on Molenbeek, an inner-city suburb in Brussels which has long been linked to terror, and been portrayed as a jihadist breeding ground. A man who was subdued as he apparently prepared to open fire on passengers on a high-speed train from Amsterdam to Paris in August was reported to have stayed in the neighborhood before boarding the train in Brussels. The suspect in a shooting that killed four people at the Jewish Museum in Brussels in 2014 also stayed there, and so did the members of a suspected ISIL terror cell in the eastern city of Verviers in January 2015, according to media reports. One of the members of the group behind the train bombings in Madrid that killed 191 in 2004 was also from Molenbeek. Belgian Interior Minister Jan Jambon pledged to “clean up Molenbeek” after the Paris attacks. Belgium has per capita the highest number of citizens in Europe traveling to fight in places such as in Syria and Iraq, according to a United Nations working group on the use of mercenaries. It estimated that 500 Belgians have left the country to fight. etc. and more continues..

Obama's Odyssey to Terrorist Cuba

The White House denies justice to American victims of terror.

March 21, 2016 Daniel Greenfield

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. In 1972, Ishmael Muslim Ali LaBeet and four other killers walked into the Fountain Valley golf club in the Virgin Islands. They rounded up four Florida tourists and four employees, forced them to kneel on the ground, shouted racial slurs at their victims, all but one of whom were white. “Kill all the white mother___s”, one of the attackers yelled. And the Fountain Valley Massacre began. LaBeet had converted to Islam under the influence of Malcolm X and had a history of assaults on white people. He and his fellow racist murderers were swarmed by left-wing civil rights attorneys eager to claim that they had been tortured into confessing. William Kunstler, the most notorious figure in the case, got a St. Croix vacation out of it while sleeping with the wife of Michael Ratner, the head of the Center for Constitutional Rights. But his claims of torture were undermined by his own clients. At his trial, Ishmael LaBeet yelled, "I killed them all. I don't give a f__. I killed them all.” Supporters snapped Black Power salutes. The killers were found guilty and sentenced. But LaBeet had learned how to use civil rights to manipulate the system. His manipulations culminated in his successful hijacking of an airplane to Cuba. Today he is still there, north of Guantanamo, and claims to be a Communist. LaBeet is one of many racist terrorists who have killed Americans and who are being harbored by the Castro regime. The pain of his victims and the victims of other left-wing terrorists under the protection of the Castro crime family are not likely to move the radical extremist in the White House. Cuba holds the same appeal for Obama that it did for the leftist terrorists who hide out there today. Even though Obama illegally and falsely delisted Cuba as a state sponsor of terror, the Communist dictatorship still remains a haven and a hub for terrorists from around the world. Cuba is best known for its ties to the Marxist narcoterrorists of FARC who have kidnapped and murdered Americans. But the Iran-backed Islamic terrorists of Hezbollah, who carried out the Marine barracks bombing in Beirut, have a home in Cuba. As do members of the left’s terrorist networks in America. Castro’s hotel for killers hosted the murderers of Patrolman Robert Rosenbloom in New Mexico. Two of them have since died, but Charlie Hill of the Republic of New Afrika, a racist Black Nationalist group inspired by Malcolm X, is still a free man in Cuba and has been complaining to the media about his life in the Communist dictatorship where he is required to work for a living and smoking pot is a crime. Discussing the murder of Rosenbloom, Hill has said, “I have never felt guilty about that cop. I never think about that dude.“ William Morales, the bombmaker for FALN, a Puerto Rican separatist terrorist group that currently enjoys almost as much support from the New York City Council as it does from Castro, was linked to the Fraunces Tavern bombing in New York which killed four people and wounded dozens. Morales was allegedly aided in his escape by his lawyer, Susan Tipograph, who was supposed to have strapped bolt cutters to her thighs. Tipograph is married to former Weathermen terrorist Cathy Wilkerson whose terrorist pals blew up her father’s Greenwich Village townhouse while working on a nail bomb meant to be used on an army dance at Fort Dix. Tipograph went on to defend Lynne Stewart, another radical leftist lawyer who was convicted of aiding the Blind Sheikh who was linked to the World Trade Center bombing and future terror bombing plots in New York City. The bombmaker and terrorist leader is still reportedly alive and well in Cuba. And then there’s Frank Terpil, a traitor who provided weapons to terrorists and worked for Saddam, Gaddafi, Arafat and other enemies of the United States before joining up with Castro to undermine America. There are allegations that Terpil died recently, but such claims have been made before. But the most famous American terrorist in Castro’s Hotel for Terrorists is Joanne Chesimard aka Assata Shakur. Shakur, a member of the racist Black Liberation Army terrorist group, murdered New Jersey state trooper Werner Foerster. Even while the FBI has her on its Most Wanted list, Obama is visiting a country where cop-killers like Chesimard and Hill are protected by its Communist government. While the families of the victims of the Fraunces Tavern bombing, the relatives of dead police officers and murdered tourists wait for justice, Obama has bailed out the regime responsible for denying it. Domestically, Obama has made war on police officers. By taking the side of the racist #BlackLivesMatter movement, the successor to hate groups such as the Black Panthers and the BLA, he has managed to get even more police officers killed than Chesimard and Hill ever could. Obama is their biggest achievement. Obama’s supporters view Chesimard and Hill as heroes, not as criminals. #BlackLivesMatter explicitly celebrates Shakur as an inspiration for its hate group. In Open Letter Part II, Jay Z gleefully raps about his White House connections and support for cop killers. "Boy from the hood but got White House clearance", "Obama said ‘chill, you gonna get me impeached’", "With the Obamas, I ride, I meet the president on the Southside" and pivots to "Assata Shakur, they tried to execute her, I went to Cuba to see her, We should free her, like we should Mumia."The radical left has always celebrated the murderers of police officers. The unlikely escapes to Cuba by left-wing terrorists in America required aid and comfort from figures in the left-wing establishment. Will Obama ask Castro to extradite the killers and terrorists to America? Pope Francis ignored similar pleas. It’s even less likely that Obama will listen. Instead Lynch’s DOJ may finally give Charlie Hill the slap on the wrist he wanted in exchange for letting him come back. Joanne Chesimard may finally be allowed to do her celebratory tour of campuses in the United States. And Morales may be able to visit the city that he bombed where he will be feted by New York City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito who supports FALN terrorists and has refused to recite the Pledge of Allegiance. Obama would not have put in this much effort into aiding the Castro regime if the Communist dictatorship weren’t such an inspiration to the American left. Castro understood that for the bargain price of providing a refuge for left-wing terrorists, he could secure the undying loyalty of extremists like Obama. It took a long time, but the American left was finally in a position to bail out Castro. Obama’s Cuban trip is one of his final acts of treason against the United States of America and against the American dead.

Anti-Israel Protesters March on AIPAC Policy Conference

Purpose of protest was to 'advocate for the right of Palestinians all over the world'

BY: Aaron Kliegman March 21, 2016 9:41 am

“Do not negotiate! We must keep fighting!” declared Abbas Hamideh, co-founder of Al-Awda, The Palestine Right to Return Coalition, to the few hundred pro-Palestinian activists gathered before him in front of the White House on Sunday. They were there to protest the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, widely known as AIPAC, America’s most influential pro-Israel lobbying group, on the first day of its annual policy conference at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. Beyond AIPAC, the purpose of the protest was to “advocate for the right of Palestinians all over the world.” To this end, the protestors were calling for the creation of a new Palestinian state stretching from the Jordan River in the east to the Mediterranean Sea in the west, an area within which the entire state of Israel is located, and for all Palestinians around the world to have a right to return to this land. Al-Awda hosted and organized the protest along with co-sponsor the ANSWER Coalition, an anti-war group. The protesters first gathered at the White House at noon to organize and hear various speakers before marching to AIPAC conference. “We have Christians—the real ones—[and] Jews, the real Jews,” Hamideh told the crowd with a smile while speaking of its diversity. He then asked, “Are you ready to give up an inch on Palestine?” to which the crowd responded, “No!” Hamideh’s question is similar to a statement on his Twitter page in which he declares, “I don’t compromise on one inch of Palestinian land!” Some of the most noticeable aspects of the protest were the many provocative signs that protestors held, making their message evident to onlookers. “Israel = Racism and Genocide,” one sign read. “Israel = Ku Klux Klan,” another said. “The problem isn’t just AIPAC,” one speaker said. “The problem is the White House, the House of Representatives, the Senate, who write blank checks to Israel for $4 billion a year … which goes to missiles and bombs and checkpoints and apartheid.” Presidential candidates did not escape the protestors’ criticisms either. Not only were there anti-Donald Trump signs at the protest and speakers who were calling him racist, but Hillary Clinton also received criticism from the crowd for being too close to big banks and oil companies. The protest appeared to co-opt a political left-wing agenda with its focus on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. One man, for example, was handing out fliers that, in his own words, “explain Israel’s genocidal and apartheid policies and actions,” but they focused as much on advocating for people to vote Socialist candidates into office. At 1:30 p.m., the protestors mobilized into formation and began marching to the convention center. Police blocked off roads on the way, and one masked protestor spotted two police officers on horseback and went right up to them, shouting, “You know, millions of people will one day come back and reclaim this city! You will have to make a decision whether you are with them or against them! Mark my words!” The chant then changed to: “1, 2, 3, 4, stop the killing, stop the war! 5, 6, 7, 8, Israel is a terror state!” After several minutes and much attention from onlookers filming the march with their phones, the protestors arrived at the convention center, where they shouted “Shame on you” at any individuals who walked in or out of the AIPAC event. A few protestors pointed and yelled “terrorists” at anyone coming or going. The leader of the protest at the convention center was Sabry Wazwaz, an American Palestinian filmmaker and activist. Wazwaz told the protestors to “look at those faces in those windows. They are scared. This is what justice looks like.” Wazwaz went to great lengths to connect Palestinian resistance with black resistance in the United States, declaring that “Palestinians stand with the Back Lives Matter movement” and compared Israel’s presence in the Palestinian territories to “the American occupation of the black community.”

U.S. Christians Support Israel More Than Israeli Christians

03-09-2016 CBN News

A new survey shows a big difference between Israeli Christians and American evangelicals in their views towards Israel. The Pew Research Center conducted a comprehensive study on views of the Jewish State. Researchers polled 468 self-identified Christians living in Israel. A major finding from the survey is the divergent views on the land of Israel between Israeli and American Christians. In 2013, 82 percent of white evangelicals said God gave the land of Israel to the Jewish people. But the survey found only 19 percent of Christians born, raised and living in Israel believe the same. Sixty-six percent believe that's not literally true, and 9 percent said they don't know what to think. Pew discovered only 2 percent of the population of Israel in 2015 was Christian. That percentage is primarily divided in half between Catholic and Orthodox Christians. Protestants and Messianic Jews together comprised less than .5 percent of the population of Israel. Their communities were not broken out in the survey results separately, but they are a part of the totals involving all Christians. Another result involves the perception of the United States' support of Israel. Eighty-six percent of Israeli Christians say the United States supports Israel too much, while only 6 percent believe the U.S. government is not supporting Israel enough and 7 percent believe the amount of support is just right. Contrast that with American Christians. According to a 2013 Pew study, only 18 percent said the American government is too supportive of Israel. Twenty-nine percent of American Christians thought the U.S. was not supporting Israel enough and 41 percent believed the support was about right. In a 2015 Pew survey, only 6 percent of white evangelicals in the U.S. thought the American government was too supportive, while 55 percent believed the U.S. did not support Israel enough, and 36 percent agreed the support was around the right level. In a 2015 survey from LifeWay Research, 80 percent of evangelical pastors agreed that Christians should support Israel. Other results of the Pew poll of Israeli Christians involve their faith walk. Only 34 percent of Christians in Israel said they pray daily, and 38 percent attend church at least weekly. On the other hand, 68 percent of American Christians and 79 percent of U.S. evangelicals say they pray daily. Forty-seven percent of Christians and 58 percent of evangelicals in the United States attend church at least once a week.

Emptying classrooms for Day of Silence

Monday, March 21, 2016 Bob Kellogg (OneNewsNow.com)

Pro-family groups are urging parents to participate in a walkout if they find out their children's schools are going to observe the pro-homosexual "Day of Silence" on April 15. Day of Silence, promoted by the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), encourages students to remain silent throughout the school day to show empathy for "gay" students who they say are bullied because of their sexual orientation. Cultural analyst Laurie Higgins of the Illinois Family Institute says this political activity does nothing but disrupt education. "The ACLU has written on the Day of Silence website that students have no legal right to refuse to speak," she tells OneNewsNow. She says GLSEN, which began Day of Silence 20 years ago, is falsely portraying this as an anti-bullying event. "They're exploiting legitimate, anti-bullying sentiment to achieve their ultimate goal of eradicating conservative, moral, social, and political beliefs about homosexuality, or at least silencing them," she adds. She says parents who keep their children home on that day should tell school administrators they're doing so because schools participating in Day of Silence are allowing classrooms with captive audiences to be politicized.

Soros Board Member Chairs Firm Running Online Voting for Tuesday’s Utah Caucuses

by Aaron Klein20 Mar 2016

Smartmatic Group, an electronic voting firm whose worldwide headquarters is located in the United Kingdom, will be running the online balloting process in the Utah Republican Open Caucuses on Tuesday. The chairman of Smartmatic’s board, Lord Mark Malloch-Brown, currently serves on the board of George Soros’s Open Society Foundation and has close ties to the billionaire. The Wall Street Journal dubbed the Republican party’s online adventure on Tuesday as “one of the biggest online votes conducted so far in the U.S.” and the “largest experiment with online presidential voting since 2004, when Michigan allowed Democrats to vote in a party caucus via the Internet.” The Journal further reported: Utah residents will have the option of casting ballots in the Republican presidential contest using computers, tablets, and smartphones next week. … Online “polls” will be open between 7:00 a.m. and 11 p.m. on March 22. Voters will get a receipt that will verify that their vote was recorded correctly. The state party declined to release the number of online voter registrations that it has received. … “We expect all the jurisdictions across the U.S. to take notice and to look at this experience as something to study and, hopefully, follow,” said Antonio Mugica, founder and chief executive of Smartmatic Group, an election-equipment vendor that is running the Utah election. Mugica addressed security concerns about online voting, telling the Journal that Smartmatic has security protocols and backups of the election data should a recount be needed. He said he wasn’t aware of any security breaches. The Journal did not cite the biography of Malloch-Brown, chairman of Smartmatic’s board. That biography is posted openly on Smartmatic’s website, and shows close associations between Malloch-Brown and Soros, a major donor to the Democratic Party and hundreds of liberal and radical-left groups. The bio states: Mark Malloch-Brown is a former number two in the United Nations as well as having served in the British Cabinet and Foreign Office. He now sits in the House of Lords and is active both in business and in the non-profit world. He also remains deeply involved in international affairs. Mark served as Deputy Secretary-General and Chief of Staff of the UN under Kofi Annan. For six years before that he was Administrator of the UNDP, leading the UN’s development efforts around the world. He was later Minister of State in the Foreign Office, covering Africa and Asia, and was a member of Gordon Brown’s cabinet. Other positions have included vice-chairman of George Soros’s Investment Funds, as well as his Open Society Institute, a Vice-President at the World Bank and the lead international partner at Sawyer Miller, a political consulting firm. He also has served as Vice-Chairman of the World Economic Forum. He began his career as a journalist at The Economist. Besides formerly serving as vice-chairman of Soros’s Investment Funds and the billionaire’s Open Society Institute, Malloch-Brown is currently a global board member of Soros’s Open Society Foundation. As further documented in his Smartmatic Group bio, Malloch-Brown also serves on the small board of the International Crisis Group, a Soros-financed international crisis management organization. Soros himself sits on the ICG’s small board. Besides their worldwide headquarters in London, Smartmatic lists offices in 13 other countries. Their U.S. offices are located in Boca Raton, Florida. Tuesday’s Utah GOP Caucuses are considered an important test for online voting, which seems poised to expand in future elections. Last month, Microsoft’s vote-counting technology was utilized in the Iowa Caucus. Obama last week called for future online voting while speaking at the South by Southwest technology and music festival. He said the technology world should debate “how can we create safe, secure, smart systems for people to be able to vote much easier online.” In a press release, Smartmatic’s Mugica responded directly to Obama’s call for online voting, stating, “President Obama’s call was surprising in only one respect—that it caused a stir.” “In a world where we can buy a house, take a degree course, and access government services online, it does not make sense that elections don’t use tried and tested technology,” added Mugica. “I agree with the President. The future of democracy is digital.” In January 2014, Obama’s 10-person Presidential Commission on Election Administration released its recommendations for reforming the U.S. election process, including transitioning to voting via tablet computers and other technologies, as Breitbart reported. The commission recommended: Software-only products can be integrated with off-the-shelf commercial hardware components such as computers, laptops, tablets, scanners, printers, and even machine-readable code scanners and signature pad products. Tablet computers such as iPads are common components of these new technologies. They can be integrated into the check-in, voting, and verification processes in the polling place. The commission highlighted new technologies in which the voter can “pre-fill” sample ballots at home to be scanned later at the polling place. The panel dismissed concerns about hacking. The commission stated: “The fact that a tablet or off-the-shelf computer can be hacked or can break down does not mean such technology is inherently less secure than existing ballot marking methods if proper precautions are taken.” With research by Brenda J. Elliott. Aaron Klein is Breitbart’s Jerusalem bureau chief and senior investigative reporter.

GOP MEETING RIGHT NOW TO "REWRITE CONVENTION RULES"

Post by Newsroom - Mar 20, 2016

According to Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus, a meeting is taking place TODAY to re-write the Rules for the 2016 Republican Convention. Upset that the existing "establishment" has been unable to stop voters from freely choosing Donald J. Trump as the Republican nominee for President of the United States, Mr. Priebus and his cadre of establishemtn cronies and lackeys will now blatantly change the rules to get what they want --- and the voters be damned. When asked what their initial reaction was to this revelation, Republican voter from New York, Stephen Chesney said "Never in my life have I witnessed men who are so without honor that they are willing to cheat so brazenly." Michelle Mikalusco of New Jersey said "These people are sore losers and good for nothing cheats." If they can change the rules in the middle of the game, perhaps the Republican electorate can too; by "removing" the Chairman and his lackeys, prior to the expiration of his term. After all, what's good for the Goose is good for the Gander.

Trump under attack by 187 organizations directly funded by George Soros

March 20, 2016/in Featured, Immigration, Labor / Unions, Policy, Politics /by Dr. Rich Swier

There have been many articles written about George Soros and his collectivist activism. Soros is a business magnate, investor, philanthropist, and author who is of Jewish-Hungarian ancestry and holds dual citizenship. He is chairman of Soros Fund Management. Discover the Networks has published a comprehensive list of organizations funded by Soros and his Open Society Institute. Some of these groups have actively opposed Donald Trump for president and may be part of the recent levels of violence and chaos seen at his rallies. Many of the groups favor: open borders, amnesty, giving illegals voting rights, Muslim migration and social justice. You may learn more about Soros and his causes from these two articles:

Open Society Institute: Top 150 Grantees by Tina Trent October 19, 2011

Major Recipients of Soros Funding, 1999-2005 by The Capital Research Center March 2005

Organizations that, in recent years, have received direct funding and assistance from George Soros and his Open Society Institute (OSI) include the following. (Comprehensive profiles of each are available in the “Groups” section of DiscoverTheNetworks.org):

Advancement Project: This organization works to organize “communities of color” into politically cohesive units while disseminating its leftist worldviews and values as broadly as possible by way of a sophisticated communications department. Air America Radio: Now defunct, this was a self-identified “liberal” radio network.

All of Us or None: This organization seeks to change voting laws — which vary from state to state — so as to allow ex-inmates, parolees, and even current inmates to cast their ballots in political elections.

Alliance for Justice: Best known for its activism vis a vis the appointment of federal judges, this group consistently depicts Republican judicial nominees as “extremists.”

America Coming Together: Soros played a major role in creating this group, whose purpose was to coordinate and organize pro-Democrat voter-mobilization programs.

America Votes: Soros also played a major role in creating this group, whose get-out-the-vote campaigns targeted likely Democratic voters.

America’s Voice: This open-borders group seeks to promote “comprehensive” immigration reform that includes a robust agenda in favor of amnesty for illegal aliens.

American Bar Association Commission on Immigration Policy: This organization “opposes laws that require employers and persons providing education, health care, or other social services to verify citizenship or immigration status.”

American Bridge 21st Century: This Super PAC conducts opposition research designed to help Democratic political candidates defeat their Republican foes.

American Civil Liberties Union: This group opposes virtually all post-9/11 national security measures enacted by the U.S. government. It supports open borders, has rushed to the defense of suspected terrorists and their abettors, and appointed former New Left terrorist Bernardine Dohrn to its Advisory Board.

American Constitution Society for Law and Policy: This Washington, DC-based think tank seeks to move American jurisprudence to the left by recruiting, indoctrinating, and mobilizing young law students, helping them acquire positions of power. It also provides leftist Democrats with a bully pulpit from which to denounce their political adversaries. American Family Voices: This group creates and coordinates media campaigns charging Republicans with wrongdoing.

American Federation of Teachers: After longtime AFT President Albert Shanker died in in 1997, he was succeeded by Sandra Feldman, who slowly “re-branded” the union, allying it with some of the most powerful left-wing elements of the New Labor Movement. When Feldman died in 2004, Edward McElroy took her place, followed by Randi Weingarten in 2008. All of them kept the union on the leftward course it had adopted in its post-Shanker period.

American Friends Service Committee: This group views the United States as the principal cause of human suffering around the world. As such, it favors America’s unilateral disarmament, the dissolution of American borders, amnesty for illegal aliens, the abolition of the death penalty, and the repeal of the Patriot Act.

American Immigration Council: This non-profit organization is a prominent member of the open-borders lobby. It advocates expanded rights and amnesty for illegal aliens residing in the U.S.

American Immigration Law Foundation: This group supports amnesty for illegal aliens, on whose behalf it litigates against the U.S. government.

We Are America Alliance: This coalition promotes “increased civic participation by immigrants” in the American political process.

Working Families Party: An outgrowth of the socialist New Party, WFP seeks to help push the Democratic Party toward the left.

World Organization Against Torture: This coalition works closely with groups that condemn Israeli security measures against Palestinian terrorism.

YWCA World Office, Switzerland: The YWCA opposes abstinence education; supports universal access to taxpayer-funded abortion-on-demand; and opposes school vouchers.

“Secondary“ or “Indirect“ Affiliates of the George Soros Network

In addition to those organizations that are funded directly by George Soros and his Open Society Institute (OSI), there are also numerous “secondary” or “indirect” affiliates of the Soros network. These include organizations which do not receive direct funding from Soros and OSI, but which are funded by one or more organizations that do.

Center for Progressive Leadership: Funded by the Soros-bankrolled Democracy Alliance, this anti-capitalist organization is dedicated to training future leftist political leaders.

John Adams Project:This project of the American Civil Liberties Union was accused of: (a) having hired investigators to photograph CIA officers thought to have been involved in enhanced interrogations of terror suspects detained in Guantanamo, and then (b) showing the photos to the attorneys of those suspects, some of whom were senior al-Qaeda operatives.

Moving Ideas Network (MIN): This coalition of more than 250 left-wing activist groups is a partner organization of the Soros-backed Center for American Progress. MIN was originally a project of the Soros-backed American Prospect and, as such, received indirect funding from the Open Society Institute. In early 2006, The American Prospect relinquished control of the Moving Ideas Network.

New Organizing Institute: Created by the Soros-funded MoveOn.org, this group “trains young, technology-enabled political organizers to work for progressive campaigns and organizations.”

Think Progress: This “project” of the American Progress Action Fund, which is a “sister advocacy organization”of the Soros-funded Center for American Progress and Campus Progress, seeks to transform “progressive ideas into policy through rapid response communications, legislative action, grassroots organizing and advocacy, and partnerships with other progressive leaders throughout the country and the world.”

Vote for Change: Coordinated by the political action committee of the Soros-funded MoveOn.org, Vote for Change was a group of 41 musicians and bands that performed concerts in several key election “battleground”states during October 2004, to raise money in support of Democrat John Kerry‘s presidential bid.

Working Families Party: Created in 1998 to help push the Democratic Party toward the left, this front group for the Soros-funded ACORN functions as a political party that promotes ACORN-friendly candidates.

GLENN BECK Bashes Christians for Voting Trump: “Evangelicals Have Not Been Listening to Their God” (VIDEO)

Jim Hoft Mar 21st, 2016 11:33 pm 1543 Comments

Radio and TV host Glenn Beck trashed Christians again for not voting for Ted Cruz.

If only they’d see the light of Ted Cruz?

During his speech today in Utah Glenn called for Mormons to rise up. Beck also scolded Evangelicals in the South for not listening to the voice of God – or the voices he’s hearing in his head, anyway. “Utah has an incredible opportunity. So many Christians have been standing up. But all throughout the South the Evangelicals are not listening to their God. Let us raise a standard in Utah.”

Glenn Beck touts Ted Cruz as fulfillment of Mormon end-days prophecy

Posted on March 21, 2016 by Dr. Eowyn | 24 Comments

On the eve of the Utah caucuses, Ted Cruz has received the endorsement of two prominent Mormons: Glenn Beck and Mitt Romney. On Tuesday, March 22, Utah Republicans will choose 40 delegates in caucuses. Under Utah’s rules, a candidate who wins more than 50% of the vote captures all of the state’s GOP delegates. If nobody wins more than half, the delegates are apportioned based on the percentage of the vote the candidate wins. Lee Davidson reports for The Salt Lake Tribune that on Saturday, March 19, 2016, at a Cruz campaign rally of about 5,000 people in Provo High School, Provo, Utah, TV-radio talk host Glenn Beck said about Cruz and Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah), “I don’t have any friends in Washington except these two” because of how they attack the status quo there. Then Beck said something at once cryptic and alarming. He said that he, like many Mormons, believes in a prophecy that the Constitution will hang by a thread in the last days. Beck said he believes that now is that time, and that people like Lee and Cruz will save it. Beck also said the Book of Mormon was created as a guide on how to protect freedom in our day, to which the people at the rally responded yelling, “I believe!” Cruz also received an endorsement from another prominent Mormon — 2012 GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney. Romney — who had been campaigning for any GOP presidential candidate except Donald Trump — did not appear at Cruz’s rallies, but endorsed Cruz in a Facebook post on Friday. Romney wrote: “The only path that remains to nominate a Republican rather than Mr. Trump is to have an open convention. At this stage, the only way we can reach an open convention is for Sen. Cruz to be successful in as many of the remaining nominating elections as possible. Today, there is a contest between Trumpism and Republicanism. Through the calculated statements of its leader, Trumpism has become associated with racism, misogyny, bigotry, xenophobia, vulgarity and, most recently, threats and violence. I am repulsed by each and every one of these.” Trump responded by calling Romney “the man who ‘choked’ and let us all down,” so his endorsement of Cruz “is good for me.” For his part, Cruz said that the biggest danger America faces is career politicians who no longer listen, and that he relishes battling them for the people: “The biggest divide we have today in politics is between career politicians in Washington — in both parties — and the American people. Our freedom is at stake. Our nation is dangling in the balance.” Cruz said he has been ridiculed and attacked by such politicians for fighting Obamacare and defending the Constitution, but that he and Sen. Mike Lee are “holding Washington accountable.” Cruz even hinted that he might consider Lee as a Supreme Court nominee if he is elected president. Thus far, Trump has won 673 delegates, Cruz has won 410 delegates, Ohio Gov. John Kasich has won 143, while Florida Sen. Marco Rubio — who suspended his campaign this week — had won 169. A total of 1,237 delegates is needed to win the Republican Party’s nomination. It is the height of irony for Glenn Beck to tout Ted Cruz as the savior of the tattered Constitution, for Beck certainly cares not a whit whether Cruz — a Canadian citizen by birth who renounced his Canadian citizenship only last year when a Texas newspaper outed him — is constitutionally eligible to be President of the United States. In that, Beck is simply acting true to character. He had used the MSM’s derisive label “birthers” to refer to Americans who question Obama’s constitutional eligibility to be president. Beck even stooped to calling “birthers” “dumb”. (See “Who’s the stupid one, Glenn Beck?“

Sheriff Clarke Warns Very Sovereignty Of America At Risk As Anti-Trump Protesters Tyrannize Americans - Black Lives Matter Spokesperson Warns Of Violence Against Whites If Donald Trump Wins

March 20, 2016 By Stefan Stanford - All News Pipeline - Live Free Or Die

Things are clearly beginning to 'heat up' in America as the 1st day of Spring brings George Soros and the 'new world order' unleashing their paid terrorists upon America in an attempt to launch a race war upon Americans and put a stop to the nearly unstoppable rise of Donald Trump. As Americans suddenly awaken 'en masse' to the globalists plans to drive a final stake through Americas heart so that they can completely bring in their 'New World Order' and continue their pillaging of American jobs, the raping of the middle class and the destruction of our Constitution, they've bowed to historical leftist tactics of rioting and terrorism as heard much more in the videos below. As Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke tells Fox News in the first video below, what we're now watching is a rebellion and a threat to the very sovereignty of the United States in all of these protests that have suddenly terrorized the lives of ordinary, law-abiding American citizens who simply want to go about their lives. Sheriff Clarke is totally on fire in this interview.: "Let’s not misidentify this,” he said on Fox and Friends Weekend. “This is a rebellion.” While “the liberal mainstream media is nothing more than a propaganda wing for the Democrat Party,” said Clarke, “I identified these individuals for who they really are well over a year ago. I call them anarchists.” “It’s a conglomeration of misfits,” he added. Not only does their argument go against every sovereign nation’s duty “to protect its borders,” said Clarke, but the protesters also pose a danger to “law-abiding citizens standing up for their Constitutional right.” "I’m not encouraging them to start the fight, but I’m one of those that comes from the school: if the fight is inevitable, hit first, and hit hard.” We're beginning to see the globalists 'game plans' unfolding to keep America in the 'New World Order' on several different fronts now as Tef Poe, a spokesman for 'Black Lives Matter' who was actually flown out to the United Nations to speak about 'police violence,' has issued terror threats upon whites as seen in his tweet below as well as elaborated upon more in the next video below from Infowars; if Trump wins, there will be young blacks out 'en masse' causing riots, he says. Despite the fact that it is against the law to protest in America where Secret Service agents are present and guarding somebody under Secret Service protection according to HR347 which states: “When the federal law on trespass was quietly amended—it is a crime, punishable by up to a year in prison, to “knowingly impede or disrupt the orderly conduct of Government business or official functions” in locations guarded by the Secret Service, including places where individuals under Secret Service protection are temporarily located”, we've seen very few arrests where Trump has been protested against. If this was Mr. Obama being protested against, would things be different? As Americans, we have the right to go about our travels unhindered; as we've seen in recent protests against Trump and as seen in 2nd video below, ''terrorists'' are preventing law-abiding Americans from being able to go about their daily business unhindered as they block highways and transportation, completely unaware they are aiding the same injustices they believe that they are protesting against. We also saw another 'front' today in what could be the unfolding of civil war in America in Arizona as seen in that 2nd video below from jonah70757 as law-breakers masquerading as protesters in Arizona stopped Americans from going about their day to day lives. In the 3rd video below, according to Economist Magazine, a Donald Trump presidency is listed as one of their greatest threats to the global economy, surely since a Trump presidency would bring jobs back to America while corporations using low-wage labor overseas would be forced to pay Americans at least a little bit more. Back in 2008 and 2012, white Americans barely protested against Barack Obama in his run for presidency and certainly never expressed the kind of hatred towards him that we have been seeing towards Donald Trump and his views from 'the left'. In our lifetimes of following politics in America, we can NEVER REMEMBER SO MUCH HATRED being displayed from a group of people towards a candidate merely for expressing his 1st Amendment Rights, and to see those on the left actually BLAMING Donald Trump for speaking his mind shows us just how far down the Orwellian road of political correctness that we have gone. While anti-Trump protesters held up signs saying 'make America hate again', we've rarely seen so much hatred coming from anyone anywhere as the hatred which the protesters displayed, certainly not from those who chose to attend a peaceful Donald Trump rally. Each and every day we can see the direction this is clearly headed...the leftists will do absolutely anything to keep in power, including launching a race war upon law-abiding American citizens. America is truly getting an opportunity to see what hatred is up close and personal. Why are their eyes so full of hatred as seen in the photographs above? While they may not like everything that Mr. Trump has to say, as an American, he's surely free to speak his mind...and those who choose to listen to what Mr. Trump wants to say shouldn't have their lives encumbered by those who have been taken over by hatred of what Trump represents, an America with borders. Even though so many Americans share in the sadness of what has happened to our country under Barack Obama and the NWO globalists for the past 7 years and prior to that time under Bush, we never see the kind of hatred coming from those Americans who disapprove of Obama's or Bush's politics and actions as we do see the hatred directed towards Trump for simply voicing his opinions under his right to free speech. Hillary Clinton has been responsible for the deaths of thousands in the Middle East and elsewhere due to her foreign policy and we don't see the same kind of hatred directed towards her, not even by those who lost family members due to her disastrous foreign policy decisions! While the globalists might think that they'll be able to start a race war, many Americans have become too wise too fall for such tricks and as we learn from this story from Gateway Pundit and see in the final two videos below, a black Donald Trump supporter gets into it with a racist protester who is wearing a KKK mask. The black Donald Trump supporter has since been arrested for this beatdown. With white Americans cheering on the black man we have to ask, where is all that racism that the mainstream media is talking about?

How Mexico Plans to Influence U.S. Election and Stop Trump

March 21, 2016 | Joshua Krause | The Daily Sheeple | 2,652 views

What with Donald Trump’s calls to wall off the Mexican border, and his controversial statements about illegal immigrants, it’s no surprise that the Mexican government is not looking forward to a Trump presidency. When asked about Trump’s plan to make our southern neighbor pay for the wall, former president Vicente Fox went so far as to say “I’m not going to pay for that f***ing wall.” So clearly the leadership in Mexico is vehemently opposed to Trump, but how far would they go to stop him? Officially they’ve claimed that they have no plan to influence the US presidential election, but the actions of their diplomats speak louder than their assurances. For the very first time in history, consulates across the country are hosting free workshops for Mexican immigrants, that will teach them how to become U.S. citizens. Are they trying to trying to influence the election by turning Mexican immigrants into eligible voters? The timing couldn’t be more perfect, as millions of legal residents are eligible for citizenship, and many of them are concerned about Donald Trump. Bloomberg interviewed some of the immigrants who attended these workshops, and found that many of them were motivated to achieve citizenship, just so they can vote against Trump. However, the consulates are denying the accusation that they’re trying to influence the election. According to Laura Espinosa, a staffer at Mexico’s consulate in Las Vegas, “We don’t have any opinion on that, because that would be totally interfering in internal affairs of the country.”

Poisoned Tap and Bottled Water In 42 States- The Depopulation Agenda At Work

The American infrastructure is crumbling, it is not secret and has never been a secret for a generation. As a case in point, do you remember when the I-35 bridge going into Minneapolis collapse and sent many to their death? Every facet of our lives, which connected to public infrastructure is crumbling. Mike Adams recently exposed how we are ingesting heavy metals in our food. The examples are ubiquitous when it comes to a crumbling infrastructure being culpable in the premature deaths of tens of millions of Americans. Who Is Responsible? We entrust our public leaders with their Constitutionally sworn fiduciary duty to protect the electorate. How long have our national officials known about the crumbling infrastructure, such as the massive amounts of lead in our drinking water? Congress has been holding hearings on this going back to the 1990’s. This means that every President from HW Bush to Obama has failed in their fiduciary duty to the people of the United States to keep them safe from foreseeable and preventable health calamities. The failure for anyone not to take action when a danger is known, is called depraved indifference. All over this country, and on a daily basis, is referred to in the law as DEPRAVED INDIFFERENCE. Depraved indifference, when it results in the preventable death of a person(s), can be used sustain an indictment for manslaughter 1, or Murder 2. As a case in point for this depraved indifference with regard to our elected officials failure to act and/or war the public of a health crisis, I point to our present water crisis as a prime example of any of hundreds of such examples. Get the Lead Out! Are Americans are being systematically poisoned through the water we consume? The tap water contains deadly lead contamination in 42 out of 50 states. Our leaders tell us that we can handle so many parts per million of lead in our water. Who are they kidding? Any amount of lead has a toxic effect. This is an excuse for our leaders to continue to disregard the health of the general public, while continuing to cater to their special interest supporters. Many will say that we can just use bottle water. What a joke! The bottled water we consume is filled with tap water containing, of course, the deadly lead. The following chart provides a breakdown of lead in the tap water in all 50 states. There are very few places where you are not consuming dangerous lead poisoned water. The white states have virtually no lead in the water. If you live in Nevada, Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee, South Dakota, Hawaii and Kentucky, you more than likely have water that safe to drink. If you live in the other 42 states, you are in danger. How long has the Obama administration known about this? Some of the American people will reason that they will only drink bottled water. Not so fast, in many cases, bottled water is worse for you that drinking tap water. Also, in many cases, bottled water is tap water, recycled water. You have to watch the following video on the acidic water that some name brands are selling in bottled. It is proven the PH levels are making you sick and keeping you sick on a daily basis. I implore you to watch and share this video so everyone can see these shocking results. Citizens in 42 states are systematically being positioned and set up to contract cancer, diabetes and any other number of life-threatening health conditions. And this is being done all under the watchful eye of our elected officials. Forget the EPA, FDC and CDC, they are not your friend. They are not protecting us from this scourge of poison water that we are consuming. “East Coast Man”, from the video, is an excellent researcher and makes the systematic poisoning of America crystal clear for all to see in this video. “We’ll Just Trap Rain Water” You could always trap rain water and drink that, correct? Not exactly, In many states (e.g. Colorado and Washington) trapping rainwater is prohibited and is punishable fines and imprisonment. And yes, people have gone to jail for trapping rainwater. This prohibition has been ushered in by politicians who receive federal grant money to implement Agenda 21 policies. What Is Going On? The Obama administration spends no money on revitalizing our infrastructure, but they have enough fiat cash to send Iran $150 billion dollars for nuclear weapons deal that puts every American in danger. Perhaps if we import more Muslims, Obama will find the money to work on our infrastructure as I am sure he would move to protect his own. Have you noticed America, whether it is free trade agreements, health care, reasonably priced pharmaceuticals and drinkable water, our corporate controlled government would prefer to flush the money down the toilet than to give it to the American people, regardless of the cause. Do the American people have a target on their back? How do the criminal elite benefit? They are creating chronic health conditions at earlier ages that their pharmaceutical and managed health care companies are going to profit from as Americans are systematically exterminated by these soft kill tactics. It is a great business plan and your health has been pledged as collateral. Obama, and Obama 2.o (Clinton) have money for moveon.org, Black Lives Matter, etc., to engage in riots at Trump rally’s, but there is no money to protect for the middle class. Obama phones, yes. clean drinking water, no! And people wonder why I am voting for Trump. Cruz, Sanders, Kasich and Clinton have all been part of this criminal cabal that has acted with such purposeful depraved indifference toward the American people.

The Truth about Putin’s Withdrawal from Syria

by John Galt March 21, 2015 04:00 ET

THERE is this myth, propagated by the Western media that when Russia engages in an activity which seems counter to prior statements or actions that it is a sign of weakness or incoherent strategic goals. Sadly for the West and the new generation of so-called “Russian” experts, this is the farthest thing from the truth. At the liberal website Slate, the ‘expert’ speculated that it was due to Assad’s intransigence and the financial cost of the operations in Syria. That of course is almost complete nonsense except that rumors were that Russia was pushing Assad to accept a Federalized state solution for the Kurds in exchange for their loyalty to the Assad regime. The cost of the operation was less than $1 billion dollars and despite the Turkish shooting down of a Russin Su-24, the economic costs have hit Turkey and Saudi/GCC allied terrorist forces far harder than the just over $600 million the Russians spent. Meanwhile at the American version of Pravda, USA Today, the experts in their article speculated that the withdrawal was to force President Assad into a political solution; again, a wet dream wish to salvage Obama’s reputation in the region as there is no impetus for such an agreement to be reached. The ceasefire currently agreed to is already in tatters as ISIS and pro-Saudi terrorist groups have shattered that peace with offensives and car bomb attacks throughout the countryside. At the same time, Turkish forces continue to attack across the border at Kurdish positions with impunity, thus guaranteeing a larger conflict along the Turkish border is about to develop. The reality? The situation closer to home is going to require the full attention of the Russian leadership and military and the best pilots will be needed for a possible upcoming conflict if the European Union and NATO allies fail to reign in the militarists running the Ukrainian government. Vladimir Putin was not ignoring the actions of the European Union’s foreign ministers meeting in Brussels early last week where cracks began to appear in the united front of keeping the sanctions against Russia. Italy, Greece, and Hungary all wanted a change in the policy and direct engagement but Italy has since recanted and agreed to keep the sanctions on Russia should certain yet unspecified conditions fail to be met. The Kiev government is keenly aware of this fact and will wish to manufacture a reason for the sanctions to remain firmly in place while at the same time, doing the same thing the rebels in Syria were attempting: to lure NATO into a conflict with Russia. Meanwhile, the violence in the Donbas region against the Donetsk and Lugansk regions has increased dramatically in the past three weeks. In some areas around Donetsk and Gorlovka, the number of attacks has double in the past week as this map below shows (data from Russian news sites and Donbas bloggers): In addition, over the past week a column of 15 Ukrainian Army tanks and APCs were spotted 15 km from the city of Gorlovka in an area where they can attack directly towards Donetsk or move east from their staging point to move against Gorlovka. The following video from NewsFront highlights the location and threat they possess: This along with reported increased Ukrainian troop activity near Mariupol, Lugansk, and along the Moldovan/Transnestria borders to the west have alarmed Moscow while the OSCE and EU sit silent on the matter. Since the Minsk accords were signed, on a nightly basis the suburbs of Donetsk and Lugansk have endured attacks using small arms fire but in recent weeks, heavier artillery is being used by the Ukrainians in direct violation of the Minsk agreement. Vladimir Putin, unlike President Obama, can multi-task and understands the complexity of the situation he faces. If the Ukrainians begin a spring offensive in the next few weeks, it will provide him with the justification to launch full fledged military operations in the Donbas region and to the west in Transnestria to protect Russian interests. The benefits for Moscow of such a provocation by the Kiev government are five fold:

1. Russia can destroy large portions of the Ukrainian military, further destabilizing the Kiev government.

2. Justification for such actions will be obvious to the global community and not provoked by Russia, thus providing another black eye for the Obama/EU cabal.

3. Russian citizens desiring to unite with the Donbas region might be provided a Federalized Russian protection scheme which will include Odessa, Transnestria, and all regions east to Mariupol, leaving the nation of Ukraine with no port facilities or ocean access.

4. NATO’s influence in the region will be further diminished and the reputation as a paper tiger cemented in the minds of Eastern European countries.

5. This also opens up the possibility of reversing the pro-EU/NATO desires of Serbia, possibly moving them back into the Russian sphere. Putin understands the risks and how this might play out over the coming months and understood that he needed his best Spetsnaz and Air Force personnel back in Russia to get rest and ready for possible combat. With Syria still in the forefront of US and EU propaganda and provocation while US troops now directly engage ISIS forces near Mosul; it is obvious to the Russian military and Putin that there is no stomach to defend the corrupt Kiev regime if they fail to get in line and observe the Minsk agreements, and it will be viewed as a lost cause by the West as Russia will end up gaining the upper hand. Once again, old Vlad is five moves ahead playing chess, while Obama continues to insist on marking “X” or “O” in the chessboard squares.

North Korea Threatens Nuclear Strike, Uncertainty Abounds - Nathan McDonald

March 16, 2016

The world is once again on edge. Global uncertainty, which is already at a heightened level, has exploded even higher. The cause of this escalation is the renewed jabbering from North Korea's fanatic leader, Kim Jong Un. Aggression from North Korea has been continuous since the days Kim Jong Un’s father ruled, with both threatening to destroy the world in one way or another. These talks have carried on since with the death of the former leader and the continuation of power in the hands of his son. Yet, something very major has changed. No longer is the world ignoring these statements, for things have rapidly accelerated in regards to the technology that North Korea possesses, leaving many to wonder how they advanced their knowledge so quickly. Since the start of this year, a timeline has been constructed by the Arms Control Association which paints a very grim and very scary picture: January 6, 2016: North Korea announces it conducted a fourth nuclear weapons test, claiming to have detonated a hydrogen bomb for the first time. Monitoring stations from the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty Organization detect the seismic activity from the test. The type of device tested remains unclear, although experts doubt it was of a hydrogen bomb based on seismic evidence.

February 7, 2016: North Korea launches a long-range ballistic missile carrying what it has said is an earth observation satellite in defiance of United Nations sanctions barring it from using ballistic missile technology, drawing strong international condemnation from other governments which believe it will advance North Korea’s military ballistic missile capabilities.

March 2, 2016: The UN Security Council unanimously adopts Resolution 2270 condemning the nuclear test and launch of early 2016, and demanding that North Korea not conduct further tests and immediately suspend all activities related to its ballistic missile program. Resolution 2270 expands existing sanctions on North Korea by adding to the list of sanctioned individuals and entities, introducing new financial sanctions, and banning states from supplying aviation fuel and other specified minerals to North Korea. Resolution 2270 also introduces a requirement that UN member states inspect all cargo in transit to or from North Korea for illicit goods and arms.

This timeline, although scary on its own, is made even worse when coupled with the statements that are coming from North Korea's leadership and state run media: "Our hydrogen bomb is much bigger than the one developed by the Soviet UnionIf this H-bomb were to be mounted on an intercontinental ballistic missile and fall on Manhattan in New York City, all the people there would be killed immediately and the city would burn down to ashes.” With recent developments in their technology, these comments cannot and will not be ignored by world leaders. South Korea and the United States are planning their largest-ever joint military exercise, which will simulate the invasion of North Korea.

In addition to this, even "friendly" countries to North Korea, such as Russia and China, are putting pressure on North Korea and strongly warning against any aggressive action. They are even going so far as stating they would take action if North Korea were foolish enough to commit such an heinous act. There is no doubt that North Korea is even now being closely monitored to ensure that they don't take any further actions. What is not clear, and what should be concerning to many around the world, is whether or not Kim Jong Un is crazy enough to actually follow through with his threats. A nuclear strike would forever change the world and lead to retaliations that could possibly rip the world asunder. Once again, we stand on a knife’s edge and uncertainty abounds.

Dem says Russian subs 'dangerously close' to U.S.

By Joel Gehrke (@Joelmentum) • 3/21/16 9:02 PM

Russian President Vladimir Putin is deploying nuclear-armed submarines "dangerously close" to the United States and European allies, a Senate Democrat said following a trip to the Arctic Circle. "No one is suggesting that Putin is contemplating a nuclear launch against a NATO country, but it's not clear how tethered to reality Putin is," Connecticut Sen. Chris Murphy told reporters Monday. "And it should make us nervous that many of his submarines are starting to get dangerously close to the U.S. and our allies." Murphy made the comments while arguing that the U.S. Navy needs to pursue an aggressive plan to replace aging submarines, which can thwart rival countries from gathering intelligence and maintain the security of global shipping lanes. In recent years, Putin's navy has pursued a more aggressive strategy than even during the Cold War, Murphy said. "Russian submarines have been pushing out to the very precipice of NATO-ally waters," he said. "We have seen Russian boats coming closer to the U.S. and to our European partner ports than ever before, in immensely provocative ways — in ways that were rare even during the days of the Cold War."

Declassified Secret Letter Exposes Warrantless Surveillance Program as Ineffective Sham

The Free Thought Project March 20, 2016

The government recently declassified a secret letter, written in 2002 laying out the executive branch’s initial legal justifications for the vast expansion of electronic surveillance after September 11, 2001. Like many others, it was written by former DOJ Office of Legal Counsel attorney John Yoo, and it was directed to the then-presiding judge of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (“FISC”), Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly. The letter wasn’t a filing with the FISC: instead, in Yoo’s view, it was more of a “heads up”—in the words of the letter, a gesture of goodwill in the interest of “comity” between co-equal branches of government. The heads up he was giving? The fact that, for over a year prior to this letter, the executive branch had been flagrantly violating federal surveillance laws. Of course today we know that the government did this. But one thing that we still hear from government officials is that it was all “legal.” That while pushing things to the “edge,” the government even under Bush, had at least some legal basis for what it was doing. Not so. After fourteen years and lots of hand waving this release gives us an even better picture of the reasoning that underlay years of mass surveillance. And boy is it weak. It’s also a lesson in how to subvert the constitution and law: keep your legal reasoning in a drawer, and tightly control who has access to that drawer. Getting Worse With Age. It has been almost fourteen years since the letter was written, so it might be helpful to glance back at our timeline on NSA surveillance to brush up on the history of post-September 11th national security surveillance expansion. Briefly: the executive branch secretly decided that the express limitations Congress placed in the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (“FISA”) didn’t apply. For those familiar with the work of John Yoo’s tenure in OLC, the gist of the basic legal arguments are not new, but for those looking to see how things went so terribly wrong, let’s take a look. Youngstown? Never heard of it. (Or, secrecy permits excessive executive power plays.) In the letter, Yoo argues that the Constitution forbids Congress from imposing restrictions on the President’s inherent chief executive and commander-in-chief powers. According to Yoo, the only check on the executive’s national security surveillance practices is the Fourth Amendment; and any limitations Congress passes that raise this constitutional floor are either unconstitutional (because they intrude on the executive’s inherent constitutional authority), or must be narrowly interpreted (that is, subject to a “saving construction”) that bends them back in line with the Fourth Amendment minimum. With this in mind, Yoo sets his sights on FISA—a law passed by Congress that dictates the terms of the executive branch’s domestic national security surveillance. FISA, and other surveillance statutes, are the “exclusive means by which electronic surveillance and the interception of domestic . . . communications may be conducted.” 50 U.S.C. § 1812. The letter notes that the surveillance the executive is currently conducting “would be in tension with FISA.” Here’s a legal tip: when you’re telling a federal judge you’ve been violating federal law for the past year, describe your actions as “in tension with” the law, not a violation. Nonetheless, at least he noted that FISA on its face didn’t allow the surveillance. But here’s another tip: if you’re going to say that violating the law is ok because the law is unconstitutional, you have to cite the leading case on the question. And that’s where Yoo’s letter starts to fall apart. He doesn’t discuss, or even cite, Youngstown Sheet & Tube Co. v. Sawyer—the seminal case on the scope of the executive branch’s inherent wartime constitutional powers. And there’s a reason he didn’t mention it: the case is difficult, if not impossible, to harmonize with his desired conclusion. Youngstown involved actions taken by President Truman to prevent labor strikes at several steel mills during the Korean War. Believing that a strike would cause serious harm to domestic steel production while the country was at war, Truman just went ahead and seized them and ran the mills himself (well, the federal government did). But the Supreme Court said that went too far. The President’s inherent wartime authority is not limitless, and seizing domestic steel mills, in the absence of explicit Congressional approval, went beyond that authority. The most enduring legal principle to emerge from the case is Justice Jackson’s test for determining scope of the executive’s inherent power. According to that test, the executive’s inherent power ebb and flow depending on the circumstances. However, the executive’s constitutional power is at its “lowest ebb” when Congress has explicitly spoken, and disapproved, of actions the executive would like to take. The NSA’s surveillance program fails Justice Jackson’s test: Congress, through FISA, set out the “exclusive means” for the executive branch to conduct national security surveillance. It also, specifically, included a provision that dealt with FISA surveillance in times of war. And it did so in direct response to the surveillance overreach of the 1970s, so there’s no room for misunderstanding. That means the executive’s inherent authority is at its “lowest ebb,” and it doesn’t get to pick and choose which authorities apply to its surveillance. (And don’t get us started on the Fourth Amendment analysis.) Too Little Too Late? The government’s ponderous declassification process released this letter far too late to have much more than historical impact. But, in the end, the secrecy clouds parted, and the pattern is clear; we’re back in a place we’ve been time and again. One-sided legal arguments lead to one-sided legal interpretations. The government’s secret process let it get away with drafting an entire 22-page letter that did not even cite let alone grapple with these issues. We don’t know what Judge Kollar-Kotelly did in response to this letter either, something we’d be very curious to learn. But if there is a silver lining in this belated disclosure it is that it came out the same month as EFF was granted permission to begin discovery in Jewel v. NSA. In Jewel we may finally be able to take a closer look at what happened in the past, and hopefully get some clear judicial rulings about it, so that we know how to stop it in the future. Stay tuned.

Crime prediction software used to prosecute people for misdeeds they have yet to commit

Monday, March 21, 2016 by: S. Johnson

(NaturalNews) Are people responsible for actions they have yet to commit? This moral dilemma doesn't just make for fun armchair philosophy. A team of researchers has demonstrated that computers are better than human judges at predicting who will commit a violent act. In a paper published last month, the researchers detailed how they created a system that began with people who had been previously arrested for domestic violence, and determined which participants would most likely commit the same crime later. Authorities can use the crime prediction software to detect patterns. These patterns can help officials recognize a criminal's intent and the probability that they will commit the same act twice. The technology could prevent injuries and even save lives. On the other hand, critics note that such technology is corrosive to the foundations of justice and moral responsibility. In response, proponents insist that police departments already use computers to decipher when and where crimes are most likely to occur. More than half of state parole boards use predictions based on data analysis to determine whether a convict should be released from prison or remain incarcerated. In addition, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security already uses FAST (Future Attribute Screening Technology) to pinpoint potential terrorists, by analyzing an individual's body language and tendencies. The most recent system is simply an add-on to these technologies. Human judgment vs. computer judgment Although the technology is better at predicting the behavior of criminals than human judges are, it is not 100 percent airtight. What makes the recent study unique, is that it highlights how effective the system is at gauging criminal behavior in comparison to experts. "The algorithms are not perfect. They have flaws, but there are increasing data to show that they have fewer flaws than existing ways we make these decisions," said Richard Berk, a criminology and statistics professor at Penn's school of Arts and Sciences, who helped design them system. "You can criticize them -- and you should because we can always make them better -- but, as we say, you can't let the perfect be the enemy of the good." Berk emphasized that he only used publicly available data on individuals who had been previously arrested. The system isn't monitoring citizens; however, it is being used to decide if a criminal ought to be released or detained. Berk has been involved in crime predictive software for more than a decade. By 2008, he had built a computer system that was better than professionals at deciphering which parolees would most likely commit another crime. In particular, Berk used a machine learning system, which extrapolated data from numerous computers until it unearthed a pattern that could make future predictions and be tested against background knowledge. Feeding the machine In a study published last month in the Journal of Empirical Legal Studies, Berk and Penn psychologist Susan Sorenson reviewed nearly 100,000 legal cases, which took place between 2009 and 2013. They used a machine learning system, which collected data on age, sex, zip code, age of first arrest and a list of previous charges like drunk driving, animal abuse and gun related crimes. The system wasn't fed information on race; however, the system did discern racial patterns based upon zip codes. The duo reported that approximately two-thirds of the data was used to "train the system." The remaining data was used to test the system. They fed the computer the same information a judge would have access to, such as whether an individual had been arrested for domestic violence before. One way to ensure that offenders do not commit repeat offenses is to jail anyone charged with domestic violence. However, there is a hefty price tag attached to jailing everyone. Nearly half of individuals arrested for domestic violence are released, according to Berk. The hurdle doesn't lie in releasing half the detainees, but in determining which half ought to be let go. The researchers found that approximately 20 percent of the detainees released by the judge committed the same crime later, whereas only 10 percent of the computer's choices repeated the same crime. Berk and Sorenson are helping the Philadelphia law enforcement use the machine learning system to assign the risk level for domestic violence in households. The parole system is already used in Philadelphia. The machine learning system determines whether city parolees are a low, medium or high threat, enabling police to primarily concentrate on high-risk cases. Ensuring moral responsibilit Nevertheless, it's hard to shake off the uneasiness attached to committing someone for a crime they have yet to commit. This technology isn't limited to criminals, but has implications for society in general. Such software could be used by companies to decide whether they should fire an employee, or by doctors to decide if they should deny a patient surgery. At a more fundamental level, punishing people based on their proclivities corrodes the belief that an individual ought to have committed an act in order to be held morally responsible. A person's thoughts may reflect an individual's character, but we don't prosecute people based upon thoughts alone. In addition, holding people accountable for future crimes undermines the idea that people are innocent until proven guilty. Had an individual known they would commit a deplorable act in the future, they could take active steps in the now to avoid those undesirable consequences. Regarding people as moral agents instead of numbers is the only way to ensure that the state prosecutes people based upon past actions instead of future actions. Feeding a machine physical data about a person isn't sufficient to determine how a person will act, because not all human choices are fueled by physical causes. The ideas of other people's minds, for instance, can cause us to change our minds and make choices that alter the course of the future. Thus, such technology – though useful and potentially necessary in several respects – places too much trust in the hands of machines, and not enough trust in the hands of people.

Killing Coal Means Burying America’s Steel Industry Too

by Steven Capozzola18 Mar 20162,736

Hillary Clinton recently vowed to “put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business.” It wasn’t a nice thing to say, considering the many thousands of hard-working men and women whose livelihoods are tied to the U.S. mining sector. Clinton’s comments weren’t a complete surprise, however, given the open hostility exhibited by the environmental Left to America’s extractive industries. Fossil fuels have simply become public enemy number one for climate alarmists, and obviously Clinton and her compatriots hope to combat a perceived “crisis.” But what would happen if Clinton got her wish? How would the United States fare if, moving forward, the country simply designated its remaining coal reserves as off-limits to mining? Clinton and others believe that wind turbines and solar panels can readily step up to the task of replacing coal-fired power generation (which currently supplies 39 percent of the nation’s electricity needs.) But this overlooks a glaring problem, and one that several decades of heavily subsidized R&D have failed to surmount: Wind and solar power are intermittent forms of energy, and they simply do not scale up to the robust power requirements of America’s highly developed industrial landscape. “Renewable” energy currently supplies less than 5 percent of the nation’s needs. A chief drawback is that the wind doesn’t always blow, and the sun doesn’t always shine. And so, renewable power still necessitates conventional back-up generation from gas or coal systems. Renewables also struggle to generate the consistent power demanded by a modern, urban city (for streetlights, schools, hospitals, elevators, air conditioning, etc.) Only gas, coal, and nuclear can reliably undertake such a heavy lift on a continuing basis. But let’s suppose that the U.S. coal industry were to be shut down, as Hillary Clinton hopes. What would that mean in practical terms? First, energy costs would rise significantly, since renewables are hardly cost-effective. Second, and more troubling—the U.S. would need to start importing the steel currently used to manufacture cars, military equipment, and whole host of other industrial products. Why this sudden importation of steel? Because without sturdy electrical generation, it’s simply not possible to liquefy metal or power heavy-duty furnaces and machinery. And even more significant, it’s impossible to make steel without coal. That’s because steelmaking starts with metallurgical coal, which is used to make coke. Combining coke with iron ore yields steel. Let’s be clear about this: The domestic steel industry is already struggling to stay competitive against subsidized imports. America’s steel producers simply can’t bear the twin, added expenses of higher energy costs and imported metallurgical coal. All of this points to what Clinton has obviously overlooked—namely, the intersection of coal, steel, and manufacturing. Take one out, you lose the other two. Yes, it would be grand if renewables were the cure-all for future power generation and industrial security. But they’re not. Conversely, coal-fired power generation has proven for decades to be reliable and affordable. And the kind of research applied to renewable energy has also yielded quantum leaps forward in modern, clean coal technology. Hillary Clinton can have her green dreams. But they are the roots of a nightmare for the U.S. economy. America urgently needs to restore its manufacturing base and create new middle-class jobs. For the sake of future generations, let’s hope Ms. Clinton doesn’t succeed in burying coal, steel, and manufacturing in one fell swoop.

A woman beheaded in the road. Five headless corpses hanging from cranes. As a documentary exposes the horror of life in Saudi Arabia, why DOES Britain cosy up to this kingdom of savagery?

Sight is one scene in a shocking documentary to be aired this week

It will shed the light on the strict everyday life in Saudi Arabia

Middle Eastern nation is one of the world's bloodiest and most secretive

Yet Saudi Arabia remains one of Britain’s closest allies worldwide

See more news on Saudi Arabia as the horror of daily life is revealed

By Peter Oborne For The Daily Mail Published: 20:23 EST, 20 March 2016 | Updated: 16:05 EST, 21 March 2016

Five bodies hang from a pole suspended between two cranes, a public display which serves as a reminder to those who might contemplate a life of crime. They belonged to a gang of five robbers, all of whom were publicly beheaded before their corpses were hoisted high in the air, where they remained for days. The gruesome sight is one scene in a shocking documentary to be aired this week which sheds light on life in Saudi Arabia, one of the world’s bloodiest and most secretive countries. The documentary introduces viewers to a large public space nicknamed Chop Chop Square because it is the site of so many executions in the Saudi capital, Riyadh. The camera lingers on the red-stained drainage system used to wash away the blood of those executed. Police are seen brandishing whips against women, who are considered second-class citizens. At one point they brutally knock a woman to the ground and you hear her scream. In a similar vein, a male supermarket customer pushes a female shopper to the floor for no apparent reason. He then walks past her, oblivious to her anguish, as she scurries terrified out of his way. What the film makes abundantly clear is that the country is a murderous dictatorship which refuses to tolerate dissent. Yet Saudi Arabia remains one of Britain’s closest allies, not just in the Middle East but worldwide, as it has for nearly a century. We sell them arms. They sell us oil. The royal families of each country are close. Prince Charles has made numerous trips to the kingdom and, when King Abdullah died last year, flags at Westminster flew at half-mast in a highly unusual tribute to a foreign ruler. Our leaders conveniently overlook the truth about the desert kingdom. In Saudi Arabia, even a minor criticism of the regime can result in a lashing or long prison sentence. Beheadings, the film makes clear, are commonplace — so far this year, the country has been executing its people at the rate of almost one a day. Ferocious moral codes are enforced by the religious police as they patrol the streets and shopping malls. Blasphemy is punishable by stoning or execution, theft by amputation. Anyone found guilty of insulting Islam faces ten years in prison or perhaps 1,000 lashes. The outside world is kept in ignorance of most of this because it is impossible for foreign journalists to report from or film in Saudi Arabia without minders. Indeed, it is difficult to get into the country even as a tourist. Only because of the extraordinary bravery of the film’s makers, and Saudi democracy activists who helped them, is the truth now being aired. The documentary is based on six months of undercover filming and its footage of beatings and beheadings is disturbing enough. But it also exposes the extremes of wealth and poverty in this oil-rich country. Furthermore, it tells the story of the men and women who dare to speak out against the Saudi dictatorship, and reveals the terrible price they have to pay for their courage. The film, to be shown tomorrow night, is a shared production by ITV and the Public Broadcasting Service in the U.S. This is the same broadcasting combination which caused a storm of international controversy when, nearly 36 years ago, it screened Death Of A Princess, the story of a Saudi princess and her lover who were executed for adultery. In the resulting furore, the British ambassador to Saudi Arabia was expelled and trade contracts were broken off. The film was condemned by the Foreign Office because it offended Saudi rulers, and it has never been reshown on British television. Already, similar pressure is being brought to bear over this new documentary. Saudi activist Loujain al-Hathloul, who campaigns for women’s rights in a country where women are not even allowed to drive — and who was jailed and treated as a terrorist after posting an online video of herself driving a car — has received death threats after taking part in the film. It is easy to see why such an exposé might be greeted with horror by the Saudi establishment. The brutality aside, secret filming in a Saudi mosque shows a preacher spreading grotesque anti-Semitic messages. ‘The Jews have abused, dictated and contaminated the land,’ he says. ‘So, oh Allah, stop them and spill on them the whip of torture, don’t let their flag fly high, and make an example of them.’ The film reveals how hatred is directed at other religions in Saudi schools. One of the secret cameramen asks a 14-year-old Saudi boy what he is taught at school. Back comes the reply: ‘The Christians should be punished with death until there are none left. They should be beheaded.’ But schoolchildren are not just taught to direct hatred at Christians and Jews. They are also instructed to turn on Shia Muslims, a substantial minority in Saudi Arabia. The boy says chillingly: ‘We learn that the Shia are blasphemers. They should be punished by death. We should fight them in the name of Islam.’ The film includes rare footage of desperate Shia in the east of Saudi Arabia bravely protesting against their oppression. It illustrates how one young protester, Ali Nimr, was arrested at the age of 17 and sentenced to be beheaded, with his headless body displayed publicly for two days for his role in the protests. The British Government says it has received assurances that he will not now be killed, but Saudi media reports last week suggested he could be executed imminently. Ali’s uncle, Sheikh Nimr, a controversial Shia cleric, was executed on January 2 this year, along with 46 other men, in Saudi Arabia’s largest execution since 1980. The British Government is well aware of all the brutality meted out in Saudi Arabia. Here is what the UK embassy in Riyadh says in its information pack for British prisoners in the desert kingdom: ‘The Saudi courts impose a number of severe physical punishments. The death penalty can be imposed for a wide range of offences including murder, rape, armed robbery, repeated drug use, apostasy, adultery, witchcraft and sorcery, and can be carried out by beheading with a sword, stoning or firing squad.’ Anyone who protests against the Saudi regime faces harrowing punishments. One blogger, Raif Badawi, was convicted of insulting Islam after making public comments about his government and Islam. ‘The only way to deal with an unfree world,’ he wrote, ‘is to become so absolutely free that your very existence becomes an act of rebellion.’ For comments like this, Badawi, a father of three whose family now live in exile, was sentenced to 1,000 lashes and ten years in jail. The religious police even ban the playing of music in public. The film contains disturbing footage of them smashing a lute which was being played on a beach. The police ruthlessly enforce their militant version of Islam, known as Wahhabism. There is footage of these state-sponsored fanatics forcing women to cover themselves, complaining about them wearing make-up and herding people out of cafes to pray. The official title of the religious police is the Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice. Chillingly, only two other movements in the world — the Taliban in Afghanistan and Islamic State in Syria and Iraqhave organisations with the same name. The Saudi government has always denied that it has any connection either with Islamic State or with Al Qaeda. Nevertheless, both jihadist organisations endorse the state religion which Saudi Arabia has spent an estimated $70 billion (£48 billion) exporting around the world. Saudi Arabia denies any link to terrorism, and is indeed preparing to send troops to fight Islamic State in Syria. But this film examines evidence to suggest that there were links between the Saudis and Al Qaeda in the period before the attack on the Twin Towers on 9/11. It is well known that 15 of the 19 Al Qaeda-inspired 9/11 hijackers were Saudi citizens. However, there have always been suggestions that the links ran much deeper, and the film offers compelling evidence that this might indeed be the case. This is a documentary that exposes the deep hypocrisy of Saudi Arabia’s relationship with Britain and the West. Britain is determined to maintain this relationship even though the country it deals with is, by any definition, barbaric. The film even shows how the fearsome Saudi police — who fire bullets at unarmed protesters and activists simply for expressing an opinion contrary to the state’s — are trained by the British Government’s College of Policing. Our nation’s friendship with Saudi Arabia means collaborating with a regime that persecutes its own citizens with a savagery that defies imagination. Some might argue that this domestic brutality is a matter for Saudi Arabia alone. When he was asked recently to justify our relationship with the Saudis, David Cameron replied that the country’s intelligence services have provided vital information exposing terror plots aimed at Britain. Yet this argument is undermined by the undoubted fact that Saudi Arabia exports its murderous jihadi ideology around the world. On the basis of this deeply disturbing film, it is time to reassess Britain’s connection with the kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Obama's latest fraud: 'Economic recovery' disproven in just 9 charts

Numbers demonstrate failure of administration's policies

Published: 2 days ago

NEW YORK – The Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis updates quarterly a set of nine easy-to-understand charts that demonstrate how Obamanomics, the economic policies of the Obama administration, have failed to produce real economic benefits for the American people. The nine charts illustrate that Obamanomics has dramatically increased both consumer and government debt; driven U.S. workers out of the labor force in a manipulation of statistics designed to allow the Bureau of Labor Services to report an unemployment rate that is artificially low; increased health-care costs despite the passage of the Affordable Care Act; and produced a questionable economic recovery, with U.S. growth rates still hovering at near-recession levels of economic stagnation. This article is an update of a report published by Rachel Stoltzfoos, “Obama’s Economy in 9 Charts,” in the Daily Caller on Oct. 30, 2015. In September 2015, ZeroHedge.com introduced the concept of selecting nine charts to describe the Obama economy from the dozens of charts produced and updated by the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis. Whether the economy is up or down, Dave Ramsey’s “Total Money Makeover” is a proven plan for financial fitness Student loans The first chart tracks student loans, making it clear that as of the third quarter 1990, there were no outstanding student loans. At the beginning of the Obama administration, in the first quarter of 2009, student loans stood at $146.6 billion. From there, the graph rises steeply. By the fourth quarter 2015, the last quarter for which the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis charted the data, student loans had risen to $945.6 billion. The origin of the student loan program can be traced to Bill Clinton signing the Omnibus Reconciliation Act of 1993, which set up a phase-in of a direct government lending for student loans that replaced the program of government guarantees of private student loans arranged largely through banks, beginning with the National Defense Education Act of 1958 and the Federal Family Education Loan Program in 1965. In signing the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010, President Obama engineered a government takeover of the student loan program, so that today all student loans are direct government loans. Food stamps Under President Obama, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, commonly known as the “Food Stamps” program, has grown from $54.8 billion in 2009 to $69.4 billion in 2014. In January 2015, the number of beneficiaries receiving food stamps topped 46 million for 38 straight months, with 14.6 percent of the population and 19.7 percent of all households receiving food stamps. This represents an increase of 1516.96 percent over the 2.9 million Americans participating in the food stamp program in 1969. Federal debt The federal debt is projected to nearly double under President Obama, with the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis chart showing it has increased from $11.1 trillion in the first quarter 2009 to $18.9 trillion in the fourth quarter 2015. The CPI for medical care services has increased from 149.952 in January 2009 to 186.961 in February 2016, rising from a base of 100 in December 1999. Labor-force participation The labor-force participation rate has fallen consistently under the Obama administration as an increasing percentage of those out of work and looking for work simply give up and quit looking. The labor-force participation rate has dropped from 65.7 percent in January 2009 to 62.9 percent in February 2016. In May 2014, WND reported that the Bureau of Labor Administration in the Obama administration had implemented a policy of making unemployment percentages look artificially low by increasing the number of workers considered no longer in the work force. In April 2014, nearly 93 million Americans were considered out of the labor force. According to John Williams, an economist known for arguing the government reports manipulate “shadow statistics” of economic data for political purposes, drops in the unemployment rate as reported by the BLS have become virtually meaningless. “The broad economic outlook has not changed, despite the heavily-distorted numbers that continue to be published by the BLS,” Williams writes in his subscription newsletter on ShadowStats.com. “The unemployment rates have not dropped from peak levels due to a surge in hiring; instead, they generally have dropped because of discouraged workers being eliminated from headline labor-force accounting.” Business workforce share of income The Bureau of Labor statistics measures labor’s share of the income produced by nonfarm employment, roughly described as employment in the business sector of the economy. The measure is often used to interpret “the worker’s share of the economy,” with a declining index interpreted as a measure of growing economic discontent among middle class employees. The index has dropped from a peak of 103.605 in the first quarter 2007, under President George W. Bush, to 99.350 in the fourth quarter 2015, under President Obama. Median family income Real median household income in the United States has declined from a height of $57,357 in 2007 under President George W. Bush to $53,657 in 2014 under President Obama. The calculation takes into consideration the “Obama economic recovery,” in that real median household income in the United States by 2013 rose to $54,426 in 2013, from a low of $52,605 in 2012, only to fall back again in 2014. Home-ownership rate Home ownership under Obamanomics has continued a straight-line decline that began with the collapse of the substandard real estate market during George W. Bush’s second term in office. The home-ownership rate has declined from 67.4 percent in 2009 to 63.7 in the second quarter 2015. On July 28, 2015, the Wall Street Journal reported that the rate of home ownership in the second quarter 2015 hit a 48-year low, reflecting the reality that fewer middle class Americans can afford to buy a home. Under Obama, an increasing number of Americans are living in rented homes, with the American dream of owning a home no longer an economic reality.

Life Among the Ruins

By KANISHK THAROORMARCH 19, 2016

NEXT month, the Temple of Baal will come to Times Square. Reproductions of the 50-foot arch that formed the temple’s entrance are to be installed in New York and in London, a tribute to the 2,000-year-old structure that the Islamic State destroyed last year in the Syrian town of Palmyra. The group’s rampage through Palmyra, a city that reached its peak in the second and third century A.D., enraged the world, spurring scholars and conservationists into action. Numerous nongovernmental organizations are now cataloging and mapping damaged cultural heritage sites in the region. It will be uncanny and thrilling to see this arch from an ancient desert civilization set against the bright lights of New York. Unfortunately, facsimiles can achieve only so much. Denuded of people, stripped of the rich social contexts in which they were once embedded, antiquities appear just as evidence of the grandeur of the past, the accomplishments of another place in another time. But what did these assemblages of stone mean to the modern Iraqis and Syrians who lived with them? For Salam al-Kuntar, a Syrian archaeologist who works at the University of Pennsylvania Museum, the loss of the Temple of Baal was deeply personal. “I have a special love for Palmyra because the Temple of Baal is where my mother was born,” she said. Ms. Kuntar’s grandfather was a policeman in Palmyra when its Roman-era ruins were inhabited. Well into the 20th century, generations of Palmyrenes made their homes in the shade of millenniums-old columns. The locals taught Ms. Kuntar’s grandmother — who was a young bride when she arrived in Palmyra — how to cook and how to bake bread. Her daughter was among the last generation born inside the ancient city. In the late 1920s and early 1930s, French colonial authorities cleared the area of its inhabitants and dismantled their mud-brick house. That paved the way for the archaeological exploration and preservation of the site, but it also definitively ended ancient Palmyra’s habitation as well as the use of the Temple of Baal, which over the centuries had transformed into a Byzantine church, then a mosque, before eventually becoming part of the village where Ms. Kuntar’s mother was born. When lamenting the masonry and sculpture destroyed by the Islamic State, we can easily overlook this shifting human story. We too readily consign antiquities to the remote province of the past. But they can remain meaningful in surprising and ordinary ways. “This is the meaning of heritage,” Ms. Kuntar said. “It’s not only architecture or artifacts that represent history, it’s these memories and the ancestral connection to place.”

What Is Wrong With Bill Clinton In This Video? Listless And Disconnected During Arizona Appearance - Are Bill And Hillary Clinton Even More Sickly Than What Is Being Reported?

March 21, 2016 By Susan Duclos - All News PipeLine

On Sunday, March 20, 2016, former U.S. President Bill Clinton campaigned in Arizona with former representative Gabby Gifford and her husband Mark Kelly, where Clinton stood behind the couple as they gave their introduction speech, and his appearance has been described as listless and disconnected with what was going on around him. This is not the first time one of Bill Clinton's campaign appearances has had people talking and wondering if he isn't suffering from some very serious health issues, other than just normal aging (Clinton is 69 years old), as evidence by reports in January 2016 of his hands trembling while speaking at an event in Iowa as well as his voice cracking and hoarse, casuing many to wonder if he wasn't suffering from Parkinson's Disease. (See video here) According to the Huffington Post, Clinton has addressed the the issue of his hand tremors back in 2013, indicating that has has a "condition" that comes with the aging process, but the article didn't reveal what that condition is. “I have a condition that sometimes you get with aging,” Clinton said while speaking at an event associated with the Humana Challenge golf tournament, which is sponsored by the Clinton Foundation. “You may have noticed it; my hand has a little tremor when I’m tired and a lot of people do when they’re older.” Clinton revealed his initial worry that the tremor could be related to Parkinson’s, a progressive disorder of the nervous system that affects movement and sometimes starts with slight tremor in one hand. “The first time it happened, I had to go get myself checked to make sure I didn’t have Parkinson’s [disease],” Clinton said. Via Healthline we see there are a variety of medical conditions that can cause the type of hand tremors see in January, which include but are not limited to; stroke; traumatic brain injury; Parkinson's disease, which is a degenerative disease caused by loss of dopamine-producing brain cells; multiple sclerosis, which is a condition in which your immune system attacks your brain and spinal cord and; alcoholism. Not only is the health of a former U.S. president newsworthy in and of itself, but the fact that his wife is the frontrunner for the Democrats in the race for the highest office in the land, the presidency, makes it even more so. Hillary Clinton also has been rumored to have some health issues, specifically a "chronic" cough that goes back to 2008, that appears to be getting worse as she has suffered severe coughing fits during campaign appearances. In early January Breitbart News reported that according to law enforcement officials, Hillary Clinton's health problems go far beyond a "chronic" cough, with some asserting she suffered a brain injury that even impacts her ability to walk at times. ......Both of them told me the same thing, that after her speeches, whether she did a talk or a policy speech, she had to sit behind – she would come off the podium backstage – and have to sit and rest before making it back to the car because she was so fatigued, dizzy and disoriented. Cardillo said these two security officials don’t know each other and do not live in the same state, but “their stories were almost identical.” That report was followed with a more recent report about Hillary Clinton refusing to allow press to take shots of her boarding her private jet, with journalists like the political producer for CNN Politics tweeting "Campaign won't allow press to shoot video of HRC getting on/off jet. Tell reporters to get on their plane before Clinton will board hers," in late February. NBC News producer Monica Alba confirmed that report with her own tweet on February 27, 2016, stating "Clinton staff won't allow press to shoot her boarding private jet. Instructed us to get on our separate plane before she got out of the car." The same day Jennifer Epstein, Bloomberg Politics correspondent covering Hillary Clinton and the Democratic primary, reported "Press wanted to watch Clinton board her plane. But they told us she would not be getting out of her car until we got on our separate plane."

Civil War In America Has Become Inevitable Regardless Of The Election Outcome!

As I watch what is going on with the Politicians and their supporters here in the US, I can’t help but feel that there is no good way for this to turn out. Civil war in America has become inevitable. This is the topic of today’s post so grab a cup of coffee and have a seat while I explain what I mean. Society has changed over the years and not for the better I’m afraid. Instead of all of the new technology helping us to become better people, it has instead created a nation (and world) of childlike cry babies that throw a fit every time they don’t get their way. Many have no concept of responsibility or integrity. Back during World War II, young men of about 17, 18, 19 and 20 couldn’t wait to join the military and fight for their country. It was these very same young men that stormed the beaches of Normandy to help us win World War II. Now flash forward to today and you have men of these same ages protesting and rioting because someone said something that hurt their feelings. It is ridiculous what they have become. Now make no mistake, I’m not saying that they are all like that, but enough to make you worry about our future fighting forces. Then you have the thugs that Obama has given rise to as demonstrated by the riots in Ferguson, Missouri, etc. It seems they are willing to fight and go against the powers that be only if it means they don’t have to work and can continue to live off of those that do. It’s pretty darn sad and it makes me sick. All it will take is a spark (like not getting what they want) to set them off and the war will be on. On the other side of the coin, you have American Patriots who are sick and tired of seeing our beloved country going down the toilet. We work to earn a living only to have the Government take it away and give it to those very same thugs that refuse to work. We are mad as hell and are not willing to stand by idly and let corrupt politicians turn this great country of ours into a Communist nation. With so many brave men and women having paid so high of price to defend our freedom and defeat Communism, we will not let it be destroyed. We the people are fighting mad and will defend this great land of ours at all cost.

Here We Go Again: Government Ramps Up Borrowing As Private Sector Slows

by John Rubino on March 21, 2016 · 10 Comments

This morning, US existing home sales plunged and the Chicago Fed’s national activity index turned negative. Both are obvious signs of a slowing economy. Anticipating this kind of news, Credit Bubble Bulletin’s Doug Noland in his most recent column analyzed the Federal Reserve’s quarterly Z.1 Report for signs of changing financial trends, and found something potentially serious. The following three charts tell the tale: First, corporate borrowing slowed dramatically in 2015’s fourth quarter… Writes Noland: “This more than offset the private-sector slowdown, ensuring that overall Non-Financial Debt growth accelerated to an 8.6% pace in Q4.” In other words, monetary policy (QE and low/negative interest rates) has stopped working and now we’re reverting to deficit spending to juice the economy. If this is the beginning of a trend, expect to see a torrent of announcements in coming months touting new government programs on infrastructure, health care and/or the military. It’s as if the people making these decisions have forgotten that 1) the world borrowed $57 trillion post-2008 and got next to nothing for it and 2) the new debt will have to be rolled over at higher rates if interest rates are ever to be normalized, thus decimating government finances. For more on the implications of this latest iteration of the Money Bubble, see Is This The Debt Jubilee?

Profound lifestyle changes heading your way

March 21, 2016 by Paul Driessen

“Dangerous man-made climate change” still animates Democrat and liberal politics. The mantra is driven by computer models that assume carbon dioxide drives climate change, temperature data “homogenized” by activist scientists, and billions of taxpayer dollars spent annually on biased climate “studies.” It’s used to justify a war on coal, restrictions on drilling and driving, cap-tax-and-trade schemes, wind and solar mandates, subsidies as high as $45,000 per electric car, higher fuel and electricity prices, and racketeering laws to prosecute anyone who questions the catechism of climate cataclysm. But even all these actions are insufficient, we’re now told. The 2015 Paris climate pact necessitates even stronger actions – “profound lifestyle changes,” according to a new European Commission report. Even though carbon dioxide emissions have declined significantly overall and per unit of economic output, it’s not enough, European Union regulators claim. People must significantly reduce their energy consumption, “greenhouse gas” emissions, and living standards. The document targets EU families, but its assertions apply with equal or greater force to Americans. Its prescriptions will likely be draconian. However, they will certainly be embraced by the Obama Administration and any government under Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders – all of whom espouse climate chaos claims and prefer a heavy-handed bureaucratic state to seeking compromise and accommodation with a reluctant Congress. Nearly two billion people still have extremely limited or zero access to electricity. Even environmentalists want to change that and improve those people’s living standards, health, and welfare – just not too much, as that would be unsustainable and harmful to the climate. Meanwhile, significantly reducing developed nation levels would be “environmental justice,” equitable, sustainable, and better for the climate. The EU document did not specify the exact nature of these profound lifestyle changes. It merely said they would require a “wide societal debate.” Executive edicts are much more likely. Former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan says one approach could be eating less red meat. That would reduce cancer and heart attacks, he argues – and help prevent climate change, since cattle, pigs, and sheep emit carbon dioxide and methane, another supposedly “dangerous” greenhouse gas that constitutes an infinitesimal 0.0002% of Earth’s atmosphere (two cents out of $10,000). As an alternative protein source, Annan paraphrases Marie Antoinette: Let them eat bugs. “Insects have a very good conversion rate Marie-Antoinette-2-ABfrom feed to meat,” he says. “They make up part of the diet of two billion people and are commonly eaten in many parts of the world.” It’s difficult to imagine the next UN-IPCC climate conference serving roasted roaches, instead of the usual 5-star cuisine – in Lagos, Dhaka, or some other locale on the World’s Worst Cities list, instead of in Bali or Paris. Ditto for the White House or the EPA cafeteria. The worlds’ ruling elites prefer to tell citizens to do as they say, not follow their example. One can easily picture an Eco-Hunger Games, where The Capital’s inhabitants live very well, while offering commoners out in The Districts savory recipes for boiled low-salt seaweed and solar-roasted locusts, accompanied by little cups of recycled “gray water” as a wholesome alternative to super-sized sodas. Cowboy comedian Will Rogers used to say, “with Congress, every time they make a joke it’s a law. And every time they make a law it’s a joke.” But this is no laughing matter. Those who seek to regulate our lives, livelihoods, and living standards want us to pay more for virtually everything, especially the energy that heats our homes, cooks our food, and powers the cars they don’t want us to drive. They prefer to blanket America with subsidized wind turbines and solar panels, and make reliable, affordable oil, gas, and coal off limits. Thanks to hydraulic fracturing, U.S. oil and natural gas production has soared, numerous jobs have been created, foreign oil imports are down, and lower oil and natural gas prices have put an extra $1,200 a year in the average American family’s bank account. Now Mr. Sanders is sponsoring a bill to keep America’s energy “in the ground.” Ms. Clinton would ban all resource extraction on federal lands and regulate “fracking” into oblivion. They will make sure we “run out” of hydrocarbon energy, by locking it up. Climate alarmists are upset that average annual global temperatures have risen 1º C (1.8º F) since around 1850, when the Industrial Revolution began – and the five-century-long Little Ice Age ended. They claim that banning fossil fuels, slashing emissions of plant-fertilizing carbon dioxide, and shriveling modern economies and living standards will prevent a “disastrous” additional 0.5º C increase. They never explain how plant, animal, and human lives are worse today than during the pre-industrial, Little Ice Age era – or why faster CO2-driven crop and forest growth is bad for a slightly warmer planet. They focus solely on alleged risks of using fossil fuels – and ignore their incredible blessings. The stakes are high in these 2016 elections. Not only our energy, economic and employment future, not just our freedom of speech and association in the face of IRS, EPA, UN and leftist intimidation are at risk – but maybe also the right to enjoy a juicy steak, instead of a bug or slug.

Mongolia is hit this year by a "dzud" climatic phenomenon characterized by a wave of extreme cold in winter following a summer heat wave

An exceptional climatic phenomenon characterized by an extremely harsh winter has already decimated hundred's of thoudands of livestock in the Mongolian steppes, but international aid is still insufficient and the catastrophic toll continues to rise, warned Red- Cross, Friday. Mongolia is hit this year by a "dzud" climatic phenomenon characterized by a wave of extreme cold in winter following a summer heat wave. Hundreds of thousands of animals have died in Mongolia's extreme weather this year but charities say the crisis has gone almost unnoticed by the world. The combination means that animals can't graze enough during the warmer months to build up the reserves they need to survive winter temperatures that regularly plunge to -50C. With heavy snows and temperatures in some parts of the country reaching as low as minus 67 Fahrenheit (minus 55 Celsius), the global organization Mercy Corps' is supporting Mongolians who are enduring extreme winter conditions – known locally as “dzud”. Through a grant from United States Agency for International Development’s Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance, Mercy Corps team members are providing coordination, logistics and transportation support to ensure that rural communities can access the supplies necessary to survive the winter and protect livestock herds. The effort will benefit nearly 14,000 people in rural areas. “The livestock sector is the backbone of the Mongolian economy, accounting for roughly 30 percent of all jobs in the country,” says Jennifer Bielman, Mercy Corps Country Director in Mongolia. “Because of dzud, thousands of people are facing severe damage to their livestock and household assets as well as potentially crippling long-term economic setbacks.” Related

Woman in haunting photo after Brussels attacks placed in coma

Injured flight attendant has burns over 15 per cent of her body and a fractured foot, but is out of danger. Meanwhile, prosecutors confirm link between Paris and Brussels attacks.

By: Associated Press Associated Press, Published on Thu Mar 24 2016

BRUSSELS—A Jet Airways manager says a flight attendant injured in the Belgium attacks is undergoing treatment for burns and has been placed in a medically induced coma. Bernard Guisset, a Jet Airways manager in Brussels, said Nidhi Chaphekar has burns over 15 per cent of her body and has a fractured foot, but is out of danger. The image of Chaphekar taken right after the blast was one of the most searing photographs taken Tuesday. It showed the 40-year-old mother of two from Mumbai, her bright yellow uniform ripped across her chest. Her hair was caked with soot, and blood streaked down her face. Meanwhile, Belgian prosecutors say that a suicide bomber who targeted the Brussels metro had rented a house used as a hideout for the Paris attackers, and that he had been hunted by police since December. The statement Thursday by the federal prosecutors’ office confirms the link between the Nov. 13 attacks on Paris and Tuesday’s suicide bombings targeting the Brussels airport and subway system. The statement says the Belgian magistrate investigating the Paris attacks issued European and international warrants for Khalid El Barkaoui on Dec. 11. It says he is suspected of renting a residence in Charleroi under an assumed name. Several of the Paris bombers were Belgian or had links to Belgium. The chief suspect in the Paris attacks, Salah Abdeslam, was summoned to court in Brussels on Thursday morning after his arrest last week in the Belgian capital. His lawyer said Abdeslam is not fighting extradition to France, which wants him to face potential terrorism charges. A second attacker is suspected of taking part in the bombing the subway train and may be at large, according to Belgian and French media reports, amid growing signs that the same Daesh cell was behind the attacks in Brussels and bloodshed in Paris last year. The Daesh group claimed responsibility for the attacks in Brussels and Paris, which have laid bare European security failings and prompted calls for better intelligence co-operation and a tougher response to Islamic State extremists.

Brussels bombings: New video shows devastating aftermath of airport attacks

The footage was taken by a taxi driver searching for his son - who worked at the airport

Victoria Richards @nakedvix

A new video has emerged of the aftermath of Tuesday's terror attacks at Brussels Airport, showing the true scale of the horror, shock and devastation of those caught up in the bombings. The footage, which was broadcast by CNN, was taken by a taxi driver who entered Belgium's Zaventem Airport to search for his son, who worked in a food outlet there. The food outlet was deserted and his son had vanished - it was later reported that he had survived the attacks. But the amateur video shows the carnage from inside the airport's departure lounge as rescue workers try to find and tend to the wounded. Warning: This video contains graphic footage that some viewers may find distressing There is debris scattered all over the floor, making it hard for people to wade through to reach the victims. And in one particularly distressing shot, a young baby can be seen standing amid the rubble, crying - while its mother lies somewhere nearby, either dead or seriously injured. Cries can also be heard echoing through the empty terminal from those calling for help or crying out in pain. In another shot, an elderly woman stumbles through the wreckage as she joins other bystanders still trying to make their way out to safety. And in one particularly poignant moment, a single red flower can be seen lying among the debris. The taxi driver eventually finds his way outside of the building, where people lay on the street, being tended to by paramedics or passersby offering comfort. It is one of the clearest pieces of amateur footage yet that shows the suffering of those caught up in the attacks. Two blasts in the airport killed at least 11 people, while a further 20 were killed in an explosion at Brussels' Maelbeek Metro Station an hour later. More than 60 people are still in a critical condition following the blasts, medical officials have said. Isis, or Daesh, have claimed responsibility for the attacks, and two brothers - Khalid and Brahim el-Bakraoui - have been named as two of the suicide bombers.

Hezbollah Warns Israel: We Will Hit Nuclear Sites if Attacked

By Ahuva Balofsky March 23, 2016 , 7:30 am

Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah issued a warning to Israel Monday, saying the terrorist group would “exploit” the value Israel places on human life if the Jewish State “escalates its aggression against Lebanon”, The Times of Israel reported. In an interview with al-Mayadeen TV, the leader of the Shiite terror group ruled out a war with Israel in the near future, but said they would know how to respond if their hand is forced. “Hezbollah does not want to launch a war, but the resistance will employ all means to defend Lebanon in case of any Israeli aggression,” Nasrallah said, according to a translation by the Hezbollah-run al-Manar TV. “If the Israeli army escalates its aggression against Lebanon, Hezbollah will strike all the strategic targets in the occupied Palestinian territories [Israel], including the nuclear facilities.” He claimed Hezbollah knows the location of Israel’s nuclear facilities and would have no qualms hitting them if attacked. In February, Nasrallah made similar threats against an ammonia factory in Haifa, prompting Environmental Protection Minister Avi Gabbay to announce the storage facility would be moved to the Negev. The goal in either case would be to maximize casualties on the Israeli side. “There will be no ceiling, limits or red lines,” he said Monday. “We can strike any target we want inside occupied Palestine.” “Hezbollah has managed to raise its ability to inflict heavy losses upon the Israeli army during any war, which delays the occurrence of any imminent confrontation,” Nasrallah added. “The Israelis know that Hezbollah possesses rockets that can strike any position in the occupied Palestinian territories [Israel].” According to Naharnet, Hezbollah intends to take advantage of Israel’s value for human life. “The cost is very important for Israel regarding the casualties and the psychological and economic repercussions. Israel is keen on the lives of its settlers [citizens], and this is a point that can be exploited.” The Jewish people has always placed a premium on human life, in accordance with several Biblical exhortations on the value of every soul. The book of Genesis notes that man was created in God’s image, and in Deuteronomy, just before the Children of Israel are set to cross into the Promised Land, God urges them to “choose life”. Rabbinic wisdom teaches that one who saves a human life is considered as if he has saved an entire world, as the world was initially populated by just one couple. Nasrallah’s intensified rhetoric comes as Hezbollah faces an unprecedented crisis, its forces strained from fighting in Syria, especially following Russia’s surprise withdrawal, and reeling from it recent blacklisting by Gulf Arab states. Nasrallah denied Syria impacted Hezbollah’s operation in any way. “Some think that Hezbollah is preoccupied in Syria, but we have a team that is dedicated to the Israeli issue and everything the Israelis say,” he said, adding that the group had been notified in advance of Russia’s sudden withdrawal from the region last week. Meanwhile, Nasrallah barely mentioned the recent decision by Gulf states to name Hezbollah a terrorist organization.

Why the Elite’s Psyops Against Trump Will Not Work

Dave Hodges

Yesterday, I discussed the psyops being perpetrated by DARPA toward the American people in an attempt to get the people to forsake Donald Trump. This article will reveal some of the psyops techniques, and more importantly, why these techniques, will ultimately fail. The Corporate Controlled Media Six, count them six corporations control 98% of the media. They virtually control everything you read, see and hear. These six corporations are intertwined with controlling forces of big oil, the military industrial complex, the Federal Reserve and Wall Street. They control who gets elected through campaign donations and more importantly, they have brainwashed an entire nation to accept serfdom at the hands of their corporate masters. The corporate controlled media uses specific psychological techniques to control the belief systems of the publicty are applied. Group Think The world of psychological research provides the definitive answer as to whether we should fear our military in the coming storm ahead in the form of a phenomenon called group think. Group think is often described as a decision-making process whereby the group members go along with what they believe is the consensus. Group think has also been used to describe individual acquiescence to authority even when the authority has limited power to enforce compliance. Group think often causes groups to make hasty, irrational decisions, where individual doubts are set aside, for fear of upsetting the group’s leadership and balance. The controversial 1963 experiment, known as the Milgram Experiment demonstrated that with very minimal verbal pressure, and nothing else, approximately 65% of the population will put someone to death based upon the orders of a perceived authority figure. And this occurs when the authority figure, in the Milgram experiment was not allowed to apply any REAL threats. For a complete description of the Milgram Experiment, please click here. The application of group think against Donald Trump is omnipresent. Cruz, Rubio and Kasich are continually driving the point home to American conservatives who gather at political rallies that “Trump is not conservative, he is an insider”, and these descriptions are designed to make people feel that if they want to be on the right side, they will see Donald Trump for what he is, after all, everybody knows. We also see group think applications in and amongst Republican rank and file members with everyone from Lindsay Graham to Mitt Romney bashing Trump by declaring that a Trump nomination would spell the end of the GOP. Confirmation Bias “We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the public believes is false.” William Casey, former CIA Director The social psychological term, confirmation bias, refers to the fact that the masses will believe even the biggest of lies, if they hear it often enough. Confirmation bias and group think work hand in hand to enslave Americans into believing in and accepting a self-destructive paradigm. Television MSM news has a filtering impact on the perception of reality. The psychological concept of confirmation bias means that when we hear a message often enough, we come to unquestionably accept the message as authentic and real. And the message is amazingly consistent because only six globalist corporate entities control over 95% of the media. Donald Trump is racist! You have heard it before and you will keep hearing it until every nonwhite person in America believes that if he elected, America will see a race war. Trump has taken heat because he wants to ban all Muslims from coming into the country until we figure out a system to vet the immigrants for being terrorists. But the other side has labeled that as racist. This is indeed a matter of national security. Nothing more, nothing less. However, confirmation has many people of color believing that they are in danger is Trump is elected. If one wants to see racism, one needs to look no further than the George Soros funded “Black Lives Matter” group. Learned Helplessness Psychologist, Martin Seligman, discovered that “Learned helplessness” occurs when an animal is repeatedly subjected to an aversive stimulus that it cannot escape. Eventually, the animal will stop trying to avoid the stimulus and behave as if it is utterly helpless to change the situation. Even when opportunities to escape are presented, this learned helplessness will prevent any action”. Phase One In the first phase of the learned helplessness experiment, Seligman placed a dog on an electrical grid, shocked the dog and noted that the dog would demonstrate the ability to escape the aversive stimulus. Phase Two In the second phase, the dog was barricaded on the grid and was unable to escape the painful shocks. Eventually the dog laid down and passively accepted the shock. Phase Three Seligman then removed the barricades and the dog could have easily escaped the shocks. However, the dog, conditioned by the prior set of events, simply laid down and accepted the shocks, without mounting any resistance whatsoever. This is the present day GOP. Learned Helplessness Perpetrated by the GOP This is how present day America has been conditioned to not act in the fact of absolute criminal behavior coming from the criminal elite. We hold primary elections, but then tell the people that their vote does not matter. “Political parties, not voters, choose their presidential nominees, a Republican convention rules member told CNBC, a day after GOP front-runner Donald Trump rolled up more big primary victories. ”Haugland, an unbound GOP delegate from North Dakota, told CNBC’s “Squawk Box” on Wednesday. He even questioned why primaries and caucuses are held.” The media has been filled with this message from multiple sources. The obvious question is “Why vote?” That is the objective. Subsequently, the American people give up as a country in trying to change things because the system has been so unresponsive to the demands of the public, we have become conditioned to believe that their actions will not make any difference. Intellectual Plagiarism It is a well-known Sun Tsu strategy that if one is facing a superior force in battle, one should mix with the enemy, grab him by his belt buckle and hope that the enemy confuses friend with foe and kills more of his own than of the enemy. This seems to be the strategy of Ted Cruz, the only real challenger left standing in opposition to Donald Trump. Lyin’ Ted Cruz sleeps with the enemy with his CFR, Goldman Sachs wife who supported all of the free trade agreements. But now, he is parroting Trump when he says he’ll force these jobs to come back to America. He never said this before…. Now he sounds like Trump. And in the aftermath of the Brussels attack, he said he would patrol Muslim neighborhoods. And this is after he called Trump Islamaphobic for wanting to vet all immigrants. Why the Media Ploys Will Not Work I have discussed at length the 10 percent factor discovered by SNARC. When 10% of the people are committed to an ideal, the trend spreads like wildfire. America has crossed that threshold because of Donald Trump. Further, follow up research on the Milgram Experiment determined that when people know about the tendency to obey authority figures, the percentage of people who complies with these types of requests diminishes. In short, these psychological strategies will not work, the criminal elite sqmetals waited too long to implement them. So what is next? In Part Three of this series, I will explore the options available to the criminal elite when it becomes clear that the psyops being committed on the American people is not working. Fasten your seatbelt, America is in for some very dark days.

Why Islam Lops Off Heads, Christianity Doesn’t, and Trump Is Right

Posted on 23rd March 2016 by Stucky in Economy Christianity, Islam, Reformation, Trump

Horrific, is it not? But, it shouldn’t be surprising. Not when one considers the statistical fact that since September 11, 2001, followers of the Religion of Peace have committed more than 27,000 deadly terrorist attacks in the name of Islam. Neither is it surprising that Danish linguist Tina Magaard, after leading a team of researchers who for three years studied the texts of the holy books of the world’s ten biggest religions and interviewed 45,000 subjects concluded that; —- “The texts of Islam are clearly distinct from the other religions texts as they, to a higher degree, call for violence and aggression against followers of other faiths. There are also direct incitements to terror. … Moreover, in the Qur’an there are hundreds of invitations to fight against people of other faiths.” No, to those of us who have eyes and ears and the intellect to cast aside the pure “Islam is peace” bovine-excrement thrown in our faces by the Tolerance&Inclusion panoply of liars, none of this is a surprise. What may be a surprise, especially to those who haven’t completely read the Old Testament, is that the Bible is every bit as violent as the Koran. There are thirty six (36!!) different offenses in the Bible which qualify for capital punishment. Here are a few of them; — cursing parents, working on the Sabbath, premarital Sex (girls only), disobedience (boys only), worshipping any god but Yahweh, witches, loose daughters of clergy, girls who are raped within the city limits, blasphemers, anyone who proselytizes Yahweh worshipers to a different religion, men who lie with men, adulterers, men who lie with beasts (btw, the beast is also put to death … so think about that before you decide to boink your toy Poodle). (References: Leviticus 20:9 — Exodus 31:15 — Deuteronomy 22:20 — Deuteronomy 21:18 — Deuteronomy 17:2-5 — Exodus 22: 18 — Leviticus 21:9 — Deuteronomy 22:23-25 — Leviticus 24:16 — Deuteronomy 12:6 — Leviticus 20:13 — Leviticus 20: 10-12 — Leviticus 20:15)

It’s in the Bible. God’s word! These are commandments, NOT suggestions. So, in the last two thousand years how many children who have cursed their parents has Christianity put to death? I believe the correct answer is …. zero. In America, Christianity has killed people for only one of the above offenses; about 20 people were executed for witchcraft in Salem, MA., and that was about 325 years ago. The most logical question to ask is, “Why aren’t Christians faithfully obeying God’s commandments in the same manner and fervor as Muslims obey the Koran? Are we less faithful?” The answer to that can be found in The Reformation. THE CHRISTIAN REFORMATION My intent is not to turn this into a doctrinal essay so, I’ll keep this brief … a view from 50,000 feet. None of what follows is a criticism of Catholicism. Rather, it is an indictment of human nature when fallible and weak humans are given unlimited power.

In the 1,500 years prior to the Reformation there was but one church – the Roman Catholic Church (RCC). How, what, when, and where to worship and believe was determined entirely by a small group of elite leaders, culminating with the Pope. Popes eventually became as powerful, if not more powerful, than kings. Corruption became the norm. They lived in splendor, and the people in squalor. The Reormers believed the Church bastardized the essence of Christianity with questionable “doctrines” which more often than not were established merely to enrich the Church’s coffers. For example, the utterly evil practice of selling Indulgences — the world’s first “get out of jail free” card — to escape hell and go to heaven (if you could afford it). The RCC was able to hold on to such power to a large extent because of the doctrine of Apostolic Succession — the claim that the RCC has a unique authority over all other churches and denominations because the Popes can trace their lineage directly all the way back to the Apostle Peter. God no longer spoke directly to believer’s hearts. No! God now spoke directly and only to The Pope. Humanity, which once was the direct object of God’s love has become nothing but a pawn to be used and abused as the elite saw fit. All dissent was silenced. The occasional foolish believer who dared speak out against these abuses would find himself tortured, killed, or excommunicated (a fate which in that era was often worse than death). And then one day, along came Martin Luther – and he changed everything. Albeit, not without much violence and bloodshed — for those in power never ever give up their place in the universe without first inflicting even more pain and horror than ever before on the poor souls under their thumb. Reformation and suffering work in tandem. At the heart of the Reformation was the desire to answer four basic questions; —- 1) How is a person saved? —- 2) Where does religious authority lie? —- 3) What is the church? —- 4) What is the essence of Christian living? The answers to those questions — which changed everything by uprooting the monolithic power of the RCC — is summed up in the 5 “Sola” declarations; —-1) “Sola Scriptura” (Scripture Alone) —- Affirms that the Bible alone is the sole authority for all matters of faith and practice. —-2) “Sola Gratia” (Salvation by Grace Alone) —- Affirms that salvation from God’s wrath is by God’s grace alone. Grace is the sole efficient cause of salvation which raises us up from spiritual death to spiritual life. —-3) “Sola Fide” (Salvation by Faith Alone) —- Affirms justification is by grace alone through faith alone because of Christ alone. Nothing man can do on his own will save him. —- 4) “Solus Christus” (In Christ Alone) —- Affirms that salvation is found in Christ alone. His sinless life and substitutionary atonement alone are sufficient for our reconciliation to God the Father. —- 5) “Soli Deo Gloria” (For the Glory of God Alone) —- Affirms that salvation is of God and has been accomplished by God for His glory alone. HOW THE REFORMATION SET US ALL FREE Ok, great! So, what does this all mean? I’ll tell you. Hold tight and read carefully for comprehension because this is extremely important. 1)— The Reformation laid down once and for all the right and obligation of the individual conscience, and the right to follow the dictates of that individual conscience. Do you grasp what this means? In one word ….. Liberty! We in the West talk a good talk about “liberty”, but too few realize and understand that they owe their liberty to this event. 2)— Individual conscience allowed believers to reconsider how the Word of God was received, and its effectual operation in their lives. For the first time in hundreds of centuries people of faith could read for themselves how God chose to reveal himself in the written Word which, according to 2 Timothy 3:16 is as follows; — “All Scripture is INSPIRED by God ..”. No longer did they have to believe that every single word of the Bible was dictated by God (as Islam believes about the Koran) which only an elite clergy could interpret. 3)— By understanding that Scripture was inspired, and not dictated, this allowed believers to “re-interpret” Bible verses and even entire passages without fear that they were altering God’s Word 4)— The ability to “re-interpret” Scripture without fear of being banned as a heretic led to an avalanche of scholarly work. New ideas, previously suppressed by the brute authority of the RCC, now flourished in vast abundance. Human brains, previously dormant for 1,500 years, were once again put to use. (See “Special Note” below.) 5)— One of the very most important of these (many) new ideas was that God works differently in different eras. God is not like a rigid stone but, rather, has a heart of flesh. So, while the death penalty for many sins may have been sufficient and necessary at one time during the Age of Law, that same death penalty was totally unnecessary in the Age of Grace. THAT, dear friends, is why Christians no longer kill adulterers. And, as you will soon see, the lack of all of the above is why Islam still does. [Special Note: Modern Science as a discipline is a fruit of the Reformation. Science could not have developed to the same degree amongst those who worship Allah, because of Islam’s fatalism. Science did not flourish to its potential under Hinduism or Buddhism because of their belief that the world is an illusion. Humanists believe that life is irrational and illogical, and by rejecting absolutes, humanists reject the very foundation of science. If there are no absolutes in nature, then results in experimentation can only be relative. If everything is relative, then engineering, and all other branches of science, becomes difficult, if not impossible. Science needs a proper philosophical base for investigating the universe and only Christianity provided that base because a Creator established laws for people and laws for the natural world. This created world would then be expected to have design, order and purpose … which science now could study unhindered by philosophical roadblocks. Francis Bacon, the father of the scientific method put it this way; — “There are two books laid before us to study to prevent us falling into error; first, the volume of the Scriptures which reveal the will of God; then the volume of the Creatures, which express His power.”] THE ISLAMIC REFORMATION Just kidding. There hasn’t been an Islamic Reformation. The religion is interpreted and practiced in the same anachronistic manner today as it was back in 610AD. And, by all indications, there won’t be any reformation in the foreseeable future. THE REASONS FOR THE EXTREME DIFFICULTY IN REFORMING ISLAM Islam Basics: Islam comes primarily in two flavors; Sunni (about 80%) and Shia (about 15%). Sufiism and a handful of other mostly obscure denominations make up the remainder. The major division between Shia and Sunni concerns the death of Muhammad, and the question of who was to take over the leadership of Islam. Sunnis believe Mohammed wanted the new leader to be whomever was capable of the job. Shias wanted to keep it in the family, so upon Mohammed’s death leadership passed directly to his cousin/son-in-law. Over this triviality both groups have been killing each other ever since. Shias also have a little bit of “Catholic fever” going on. They believe their spiritual leaders (Imams) are sinless by nature, and that their authority is infallible because it comes directly from God. Imams are often venerated as saints and Muslims perform pilgrimages to their tombs and shrines in the hopes of divine intercession. The only other contentious religious difference between Shiite and Sunni Muslims concerns the Mahdi, which is Arabic for “guided one“. Both groups perceive the Mahdi as the sole ruler of the Islamic community. But while the Sunnis hold that the Mahdi has not yet been born and anticipate his arrival, the Shiites believe that the Mahdi was born in 869 A.D. and will return to Earth under Allah’s orders. Sunni and Shia agree with each other in all other major tenets of Islamic faith, such as the Six Elements of Belief and the Five Pillars. There have probably been less than twenty Islamic scholars in the past hundred years attempting a serious discussion on reforming, at a minimum, at least certain aspects of Islam. Several were put to death, and not one came even close to reforming mainstream Islam (Sunni and Shia). One modern day entry calling or an overhaul of Islam is Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a Somali born Muslim, an ex-Dutch politician, and a critic of Islam in its current form. In her book “Heretic” she proposes five tenets of the faith that must be “reformed or discarded”, which we will now examine. 1)- Realize that Mohammed was not infallible One should stop being an “apologist” for The Prophet, and examine his entire life, evaluate his actions at face value, and then use common sense to determine his infallibility. For example; he created a great many widows and orphans, sold many into slavery, the extremely young and pretty girls became his “wives” (wink, wink), he once had a woman killed as she slept in her bed surrounded by her six children because she disagreed with him, he contradicted himself – often in the same chapter (sura) such as when he said “whoever killed a human being…shall be regarded as having killed all mankind,” yet, that was followed immediately by the notice that all those who oppose him “shall be slain or crucified”. You see, the question of infallibility is really a quite simple one. A preponderance of evidence is not necessary to disprove infallibility. Infallibility is shattered at the first occurrence of a wrong-doing, a mistake, or an error. For a more complete list of Mohammed’s fallible actions as found directly in the Koran please see this article “32 Sins of Mohammed”. According to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, one potential solution is to recognize the two distinct periods of Mohammed’s life; Mecca and Medina. Mohammed spent twelve peaceful years in Mecca in an attempt to persuade his fellow Meccans that he was the messenger of God. That message was wholeheartedly rejected. So, Muhammad migrated with his followers to Medina … where he began to use more forceful militaristic means of persuasion; raiding, looting, assassination, and warfare. Ali recommends that Muslims retain the more spiritual, religious form of Islam that developed in Mecca, and reject the supremacist and intolerant form that developed in Medina. However, problem arise immediately because Muslims minimize the peaceful years. Mohammed received his first revelation in Mecca in 610AD. But, that is not when the Muslim calendar begins. Rather it begins in 622AD, when he migrated to Medina and commenced his warrior career. What is clear here is that while still in its infancy Islam came to a fork in the road, and they chose the road named Violence. Overall, this much needed reform is a very tough sell, likely impossible. The astute reader will quickly understand that to reform Islam by repudiating Muhammad is likely no different than reforming Christianity by repudiating Christ. So, immediately we find ourselves on the horns of a dilemma. For Islam to change it must come to grips about their beloved Prophet … but, in doing so, Islam falls. The impossibility of reform should be rather clear just from this one issue so, maybe I should just end this section right here and now. 2)- Acknowledge that the Koran “was shaped by human hands” and not dictated verbatim by Allah Islam is bound by the extreme rigidity of the doctrine of “tanzīl” – which states that the Koran was dictated verbatim by Allah. Man’s role in Koranic revelation is one hundred percent passive. It’s like this; God spoke, write it down, now shut up! How, then, is reform possible, when it means arguing with God? This is unlike Christianity which states that “all Scripture is inspired by God” …. NOT dictated verbatim. In other words, a human being receives the Word – via a dream, vision, angelic appearance, hearing God’s voice, God occasionally manifesting Himself in human form, via the Holy Spirit, and many other ways — and only then does that person write about it. It is exactly this active human involvement in revelation —— again, completely absent in Islam — which allows for God-inspired revelation to be debated and interpreted in a multitude of ways. This principle is what allowed Jesus to make of mockery of the Pharisee’s belief system. You might recall than on one particular Sabbath Jesus’ disciples picked some grains while walking through a grain field. Aghast at this turn of events the Pharisees, hoping in vain to trap Jesus, asked him, “Look, why are they doing what is unlawful on the Sabbath?” Jesus answered brilliantly, “The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath.” The Law results in slavery, while Jesus sets us free. Such interpretation is absolutely impossible under Islam. Rather it is the other way around; man is a slave of Allah and, therefore, a slave to the rigid text of the Koran. A “modernist” Muslim — limited mostly to Arab intelligentsia in the academic world– will attempt to soften the harshness found in the Koran. Muhammad’s command to “kill the infidels” is rendered as “kill them insofar as they attack you”. The command to “beat your wife” is rendered as “beat her on her buttocks with a feather”. The modernist wants to enter the 21st century while at the same time his religion tells him that a woman is worth half a man in inheritance, or as a witness in court. What does a modernist do when the Koran states in multiple places to cut off the hand of a person who steals? Will he stick to his “modernism” and try to be more progressive? Or, will he revert to believing the literalness of the Koran? When presented with that choice, it’s always the latter because, in reality, he has no choice … not if he wants to maintain his Muslim-ness. The modernist is akin to the little Dutch Boy trying to avert disaster by vainly sticking his fingers in the dike. You see this often in countries such as Egypt, which on a social level, has generally abrogated the Islamic law of apostasy. However, when the powers are confronted with an actual case of conversion from Islam to a religion other than Islam, then the full fury of Islamic zeal boils up in their blood, and they begin to demand that the apostate be killed. They can’t stand the idea of somebody choosing something else over Islam. Why? Because Allah willed it …. by specifically dictating in the Koran to literally murder apostates. How in this world does one reform such a religion?

3)- Emphasize the rewards of this life, as opposed to the rewards in the afterlife Let’s keep this one simple. Sex. Sex. Sex. Sex. Sex. Sex. More sex. Sex. Day and night. Sex. Night and Day. Sex. Sex. Sex. For all eternity. Sex. Sex. Sex. Sex. 72 wide-eyed maidens of Paradise. Bang, bang, bang that booty … and don’t worry about getting bored or tired because the Koran says “her attraction never lags nor his arousal ever wanes.” For an erection lasting more than 1,000 years please call 1-800-Softdik. Sex. Sex. Sex. A Muslim theologian named al Ghazali (died 1111 AD) even wrote – “Each time we sleep with a houri we find her virgin. Besides, the penis of the Elected never softens. The erection is eternal; the sensation that you feel each time you make love is utterly delicious and out of this world and were you to experience it in this world you would faint. Each chosen one will marry seventy houris, besides the women he married on earth, and all will have appetizing vaginas”. WooHoo!! Eternal erections! Perpetual virgins! (Now, THAT’S a neat trick! “Step right in ladies to Allah’s Perpetual Hymen Repair Shop. No fuss. No muss. No charge. Make sure you ask about our Anal Lubrication Service.”). Tasty vaginas!! What’s not to like! Sign me up!! See what’s going on here? Life here on earth becomes utterly meaningless when the next life promises an eternal fuck-fest. Then again, can a Muslim man – or any man — give up their dreams of a Heavenly Harem of Hotties? Here’s what happens when you live in the “here and now” as opposed to the “bye and bye”. ———- The Jews rarely speak of the afterlife. The world’s total Jewish population in 2015 does not exceed 15 million peopleor, 0.2% of the world’s population. Yet, 194 Jews have been awarded the Nobel Prize … accounting for 22% of all individual recipients worldwide between 1901 and 2015. ———- Muslims are consumed with the next life. There were 1.7 billion Muslims in the world …. or, 23% of the global population. In the 21st century just twelve (12 !!) Nobel Prize winners have been Muslims. And seven of those twelve were the ridiculous Peace Prize. Moral: you’ll never make this world a better place if all you think about is pussy in the next. Until Muslim men give up this idea of an eternal futuristic Sexual Fantasy Camp, don’t expect a reformation in the here and now. 4)- Reject all elements of Sharia law which are “violent, intolerant, or anachronistic.” The Islamic Law, shari’ah, is not some add-on to the faith (such as, for example, ‘speaking in tongues’ is to some Christians), something that would be nice-to-have but no big deal if not. No! Sharia Law is part and parcel of Islam, a non-negotiable fundamental, because it is based on the authoritative text of the Quran and confirmed by the Traditions of Mohammad. There. Is. No. Choice. Islam is much more than just another religion. Mohammad’s military tactics in Medina finally culminated in victory for Allah, Mecca was conquered, and then the people of Arabia had no choice but to “submit” to Mohammad, the conqueror of Mecca. The Koran intended that Islam from its inception be both an ideology and a political way of life, and by way of force whenever necessary. You people who have no problem with opening America’s borders and accepting Muslims en masse better hope they don’t become powerful enough to enact the poll tax. Once again, a Muslim is obligated to obey the plain text of the Koran which unequivocally states — “An infidel who has to pay his poll-tax, jizya, should be treated by the tax collector with disdain; the collector remaining seated and the infidel standing before him, the head bent and the body bowed. The infidel should personally place the money in the balance, while the collector holds him by the beard and strikes him on both cheeks.” But, perhaps you don’t care because you don’t have a beard. OK, so you don’t have a beard. What will you do about your Christianity, or if not a Christian, then your Christian heritage? (The Koran makes no distinction between the two. You are an infidel, regardless.) Do you have the foolish hope that maybe somehow Islam will reinterpret the following command to mean something kinder and gentler? — “Believers, take neither the Jews nor the Christians for your friends. … Garments of fire have been prepared for the unbelievers. Scalding water shall be poured upon their heads, melting their skins and that which is in their bellies. They shall be lashed with rods of iron.” Of course, right about now, someone is getting ready to respond to my “Islamophobia” by citing some Koranic verse that says something nice about unbelievers …. verses which constitute at best only 3% of the verses in the Koran Meditate on the following. How can a God who made all people ever allow a human being to violate the dignity of another human created in His name?? The Christian God actively seeks man, has made everything for man, and for man’s sake He takes the initiative of love. Man reciprocates that love and realizes that his true Paradise is to make God the goal of his life. The Biblical God calls man “his friend”. The Dignity of Man is an unknown concept to Islam. To Allah, man is but an annoyance, to be subjugated, ruled over, humiliated, and beaten down whenever necessary. Christianity advocates freedom of man …. Islam, man’s slavery. One brings the message of liberation, the other, of submission. How does one reform such a religion? 5)- Reject political Jihad It makes sense to judge a man by his whole life, rather than by just a segment of it. That being said, we all do put more weight on the latter portion of that life. The young Saul ruthlessly persecuted and killed Christians. Augustine, by his own admission, was a most zealous sinner as a young man. What we do is forgive a saint’s earlier sins if he makes up for them later in life. Saul (who became Paul), Augustine, and countless other Christian saints were profoundly and dramatically changed for the better after their conversions. Mohammed completely reverses the order. Even before his first revelation there is no evidence that Mohammed was a sinner who found God and decided to repent and change his ways. It seems he was a model citizen, a trustworthy merchant, a man faithful to one wife. As mentioned previously, his stay in Medina was relatively peaceful – perhaps because his followers never numbered more than one hundred. Then came Mecca. After twelve years, perhaps his revelations in Medina grew in scope and importance (in his head) as he developed an increased sense of his own importance. As he gathered many more followers, Mecca enabled him to go on the offensive; moral rules were more easily compromised, he acquired concubines and wives, reneged on his promises, engaged in slave trading, massacred defenseless civilians, and sinned more boldly and openly. Suppose that six months before his crucifixion, Jesus Christ decided to order assassinations, sanctioned rape … and even committed rape, and engaged in other immoral and violent acts. Wouldn’t that cast doubt on his entire previous ministry?? Wouldn’t it cast doubt on the entirety of Christian revelation? Of course, it would! Would you follow this man? Imitate him, as called for in the Bible? Yet, all Muslims consider Mohammed the model to imitate in every detail. If you believe nothing else written so far, then I beg you to at least believe this; — there are many verses in the Koran about jihad, and all jihad rests on two massive pillars; War and Deception. Our Western “leaders” – and their many sheep-like followers — are incapable of realizing that this deception and violence practiced by Islam’s prophet can only lead to deception and violence performed by its followers … no matter where they live. Logically, how can it be any different?? Why, oh why, do we not understand that the imitation of Mohammed by Muslims and the imitation of Christ by Christians leads in entirely different directions? They are not like us. They won’t become like us just because they move here. All this being said, and forgetting even the first four suggested reforms, Islam could stop being the world’s pariah if they only adopted the principle of “No Jihad”. Learn the lesson we all learned in kindergarten; learn to play nice with others. Stop deceiving, hating and killing other people simply because they disagree with you. Sadly, they just can’t do even that. They must follow Mohammed’s example … to the tee. How does one reform a religion like that?

WHAT IS ISLAM”S RESPONSE TO THESE SUGGESTIONS? The Muslim world, and unsurprisingly even the Western press, have reacted in typical fashion – heaping scorn upon scorn upon Ms. Ali, calling her a lesbian, deranged, evil, hateful, an atheist whore, and dangerous. It’s just the typical nonsensical ad hominem attacks when truth can’t be answered any other way. Here is a typical article. Her efforts at reforming Islam have resulted in a fatwa calling for her death. Ms. Ali collaborated with Theo van Gogh on a film about Muslim woman. Of course, van Gogh was murdered in 2004, and a message was left stuck into his chest with a knife saying that she was next. Freedom o
