Welcome to the 4th reich – Judge Rules Doctors Can Force Mentally Disabled Woman to Have Abortion: “It’s In Her Best Interests”

SPUC   Jun 21, 2019   |   12:31PM    London, England

In a horrific abuse of power by the medical profession, an NHS trust is asking a judge to allow them to perform an abortion on a mentally-ill woman who is 22 weeks pregnant – despite her mother saying she will care for the child. UPDATE: The court has approved the abortion.

Mrs Justice Lieven began analysing the evidence yesterday in the Court of Protection at the Royal Courts of Justice complex in London. She ruled that the woman, who lives in the London area, cannot be named, and nor can the NHS Trust bringing the application.

In her “best interests”

Fiona Paterson, the barrister for the trust, said that doctors caring for the woman, who is in her 20s and diagnosed with a ‘moderately severe’ learning disorder and a mood disorder, believe an abortion is in her best interests.

“(Her) treating clinicians consider that on balance, a termination is in her best interests,” she said, in a written case outline.

“In broad terms (they) believe that as a result of her learning disabilities, (she) would find labour very difficult to tolerate and the recovery from a Caesarean section very challenging.

“(They) consider that (she) is likely to find the loss of a pregnancy easier to recover from than separation from the baby if he or she is taken into care.

“They also consider that (she) is at increased risk of psychosis if the pregnancy continues.”

Ignoring her wishes and feelings

The woman’s mother, who is a member of the Nigerian Igbo community, is fighting the application. She says abortion is against her Roman Catholic religious beliefs and her cultural beliefs. She also said that she would be able to care for the baby, and that her daughter’s abilities and wishes were being undermined.

Barrister John McKendrick QC, who is leading the woman’s mother’s legal team, told the judge: “It is accepted that (the woman) lacks capacity to conduct these proceedings and to make a decision in respect of whether or not to consent to a termination and associated ancillary treatment.

“That being said, (her mother) considers that the applicant has underestimated (her) ability and understanding, and that more weight should be place on her wishes and feelings.”

Mr McKendrick said “Termination is not in (the woman’s) best interests.”

He also said that the judge had “no proper evidence” to show that allowing the pregnancy to continue would put the woman’s life or long-term health at grave risk.

“The applicants have failed to carry out a proper best interests analysis,” he said.“Their evidence is premised on a narrow clinical view. The application must be dismissed.”

The woman herself is independently represented by staff from the office of the Official Solicitor, who help mentally-ill people at the centre of litigation. Susanna Rickard, the barrister who is leading the woman’s legal team, also said abortion did not appear to be in her best interests.

Cruelty and barbarity

SPUC’s deputy chief executive John Deighan said:

“This is an outrage which should shock every right-thinking person. It is a level of cruelty and barbarity reminiscent of how people with mental health issues were treated in the 1930s of Nazi Germany. To force abortion on any person is abhorrent and to do so in the name of medicine and in the complete defiance of the religious and cultural values of the mother concerned calls into question the structures of law and justice in our society.”

Madonna: Something ‘Sexual’ About Jesus Hanging on the Cross

by Nwo Report
Madonna says there is something 'sexual' about Jesus hanging from the cross

Left-wing superstar Madonna says she feels like there’s something “sexual” about seeing Jesus Christ “practically naked” hanging on the cross.

“There’s something really extreme and dramatic about the idea that you know, in any church you go and you see a man on a cross, practically naked, bleeding from his wounds, and everyone genuflects and prays to him,” Madonna said of Christ in an interview with Australian TV presenter Andrew Denton.

“I find that so intriguing, poetic and sometimes sexual, sensual. And the idea that people are – in a way, it’s pagan because people are worshipping a thing.”

Madonna’s controversial remarks come just days after she told reporters that she felt the lack of gun control in America is “frightening” and a “huge, huge problem.”

Breitbart.com reports: The political pop star, who said in 2015 that she’d been “excommunicated by the Catholic Church a few times,” is promoting her latest album Madame X. During the wide-ranging interview, the “Rebel Heart” singer jumped to the Pope and politics and what she might discuss with the supreme pontiff.

“Let’s talk about Jesus’ point of view about women.” Madonna said “Let’s talk about it. What do you really think he thought of women? And don’t you think Jesus would agree that a woman has the right to choose what to do with her body?’ I think he would be open to having that conversation with me.”

Madonna’s comments come amid a Hollywood-led push to pull projects out of Georgia in response to Gov. Brian Kemp signing the Living Infants Fairness and Equality (LIFE) Act into law last month. It spurred Hollywood’s most politically ardent artists to call for boycotts over the abortion law.

Madonna: “Jesus Would Agree” With Killing Babies in Abortions

Alexa Moutevelis Coombs   Jun 21, 2019   |   10:51AM    Washington, DC

Madonna is out with her first album in four years, which means it’s time for her to wear something ridiculous, like a sequined eye patch, and say outrageous things for publicity, like that Jesus would agree with abortion.

The singer went on Australian Andrew Denton’s Interview, to promote the release of her new album Madame X, which came out on June 14, and the subject of religion and the Catholic Church came up several times in Tuesday night’s broadcast (audio here).

Denton made a joke about the Material Girl having a drink with the Pope and Madonna said, “One day he might invite me. I think this one might,” because the media and celebrities like to think Pope Francis is a lot more liberal than he actually is.

The sexagenarian (I’m surprised the sex-obsessed diva isn’t using this word herself) mused about what she would like to talk about with the Pope if given the opportunity and she came up with abortion.

‘Let’s talk about Jesus’ point of view about women. Let’s talk about it. What do you really think he thought of women? And don’t you think Jesus would agree that a woman has the right to choose what to do with her body?’ I think he would be open to having that conversation with me.

Raised Catholic, Madonna claimed in 2015 during her last album promo tour, “I’ve been ex-communicated by the Catholic Church a few times. But I also feel like this new pope is kind of groovy, and I think we might be able to get together and have a chat about sex.” The Pope might be willing to have a conversation, as he has discussions with all kinds of people of all kinds of beliefs, but there’s no way he would agree with her.

Continuing with the blasphemy theme, in another segment with Denton, Madonna managed to turn the crucifix into something sexual and pagan.

There’s something really extreme and dramatic about the idea that you know, in any church you go and you see a man on a cross, practically naked, bleeding from his wounds, and everyone genuflects and prays to him. I find that so intriguing, poetic and sometimes sexual, sensual. And the idea that people are – in a way, it’s pagan because people are worshipping a thing.

In a discussion about the many personas behind her Madame X character, Madonna praised the acts of prostitution and being a head of state as two equally valid and admirable things for women to do.

It’s also my point of view about the marvelous and wonderful and magical things that a woman can do – and you could be a head of state and you could be a prostitute and both of them have – there’s something to admire about both of them. There’s an art to all of those things and one job isn’t better than another and all women that do all of these things should be applauded, respected and admired.

To coincide with the new album release, Madonna and TIME Studios just released a new social justice video for her song “I Rise” that’s mostly footage of the March for Our Lives, resistance rallies, refugee camps, Black Lives Matter, and gay pride.

Between Kesha railling against “Rich, White, Straight Men” and Taylor Swift slamming conservatives in her LGBT Pride anthem, the competition to be the most woke rich, white, straight woman in pop is fierce.

Wisconsin Gov Vetoes Bill to Stop Infanticide, Protect Babies Born Alive After Abortions

Democratic Gov. Tony Evers vetoed four abortion bills Friday, including one that would require doctors to provide basic medical care to newborn babies who survive abortions.

The legislature passed the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, sending it to the governor for final approval. Evans, who supports abortion on demand, previously said the legislation is a waste of time and he would veto it. The state Senate does not have enough votes to override his veto.

“We have all sorts of issues to deal with in the state of Wisconsin and to pass a bill that is redundant seems to be not a productive use of time,” the governor said in April. “And clearly I ran on the belief — and I still believe — that women should be able to make choices about their health care. But this deals with a specific issue that’s already been resolved.”

Today, Evers continued calling infanticide health care.

“Everyone should have access to quality, affordable health care, and that includes reproductive health care,” Evers said in a statement. “Politicians shouldn’t be in the business of interfering with decisions made between patients and their healthcare providers.”

That upset pro-life advocates.

“I’m incredibly saddened, though not surprised, that Gov. Evers has chosen to ignore the voices of Wisconsinites from all over the state who support these pieces of legislation,” said a statement from Assembly Majority Leader Jim Steineke, R-Kaukauna. “As a father, conservative, and legislator, I will continue fighting for those who don’t have a voice and ensuring our unborn receive the protections they deserve.”…https://www.lifenews.com/2019/06/21/wisconsin-gov-vetoes-bill-to-stop-infanticide-protect-babies-born-alive-after-abortions/

Mysterious Flying Objects Over Kansas Turn Out To Be Top-Secret DARPA Experiment

There was such as vast public response to the mystery objects spotted over Kansas City that none other than the National Weather Service of Kansas City felt compelled to tweet on Thursday, June 20 that “we honestly have no explanation for the floating objects over Kansas City,” along with a sub-tweet of an image showing two “floating objects” in the sky.

War With Iran And How The Economy Could Crash

Provoking Iran Could Start A War And Crash The Entire World Economy
Authored by Federico Pieraccini via The Strategic Culture Foundation,Tensions in the Persian Gulf are reaching a point of no return. In recent weeks, six oil tankers have been subjected to Israeli sabotage disguised to look like Iranian attacks to induce the United States to take military action against the Islamic Republic. Some days ago Iran rightfully shot out of the sky a US Drone. In Yemen, the Houthis have finally started responding with cruise and ballistic missiles to the Saudis’ indiscriminate attacks, causing damage to the Saudi international airport of Abha, as well as blocking, through explosive drones, Saudi oil transportation from east to west through one of the largest pipelines in the world.As if the political and military situation at this time were not tense and complex enough, the two most important power groups in the United States, the Fed and the military-industrial complex, both face problems that threaten to diminish Washington’s status as a world superpower.


The Fed could find itself defending the role of the US dollar as the world reserve currency during any conflict in the Persian Gulf that would see the cost of oil rise to $300 a barrel, threatening trillions of dollars in derivatives and toppling the global economy. The military-industrial complex would in turn be involved in a war that it would struggle to contain and even win, destroying the United States’ image of invincibility and inflicting a mortal blow on its ability to project power to the four corners of the world. Just look at how surprised US officials were about Iran’s capabilities to shot down an advanced US Drone: “Iran’s ability to target and destroy the high-altitude American drone, which was developed to evade the very surface-to-air missiles used to bring it down, surprised some Defense Department officials, who interpreted it as a show of how difficult Tehran can make things for the United States as it deploys more troops and steps up surveillance in the region.”

The Fed and the defense of the dollar


The US dollar-based economy has a huge debt problem caused by post-2008 economic policies. All central banks have lowered interest rates to zero or even negative, thus continuing to feed otherwise dying economies. The central bank of central banks, the Bank for International Settlements, an entity hardly known to most people, has stated in writing that “the outstanding notional amount of derivative contracts is 542 trillion dollars.” The total combined GDP of all the countries of the world is around 75 trillion dollars. With the dimensions of the problem thus understood, it is important to look at how Deutsche Bank (DB), one of the largest financial institutions in the world, is dealing with this. The German bank alone has assets worth about 40 trillion dollars in derivatives, or more than half of annual global GDP. Their solution, not at all innovative or effective, has been to create yet another bad bank into which to pour at least 50 billion dollars of long-term assets, which are clearly toxic.
If the Western financial trend is undoubtedly heading towards an economic abyss as a result of the monetary policies employed after 2008 to keep a dying economy alive, what is the rescue plan for the US dollar, its status as a global-reserve currency, and by extension of US hegemony? Simply put, there is no rescue plan. There could not be one because the next financial crisis will undoubtedly wipe out the US dollar as a global reserve currency, ending US hegemony financed by unlimited spending power. All countries possessing a modicum of foresight are in the process of de-dollarizing their economies and are converting strategic reserves from US or US-dollar government bonds to primary commodities like gold. The risk of war on Iran by this triad seems to be the typical ploy of the bad loser who, rather than admit defeat, would rather pull the rug out from under everyone’s feet in order to bring everybody down with him.Tankers being hit and then blamed on Iran with no evidence are a prime example of how to create the plausible justification for bombing Tehran. Upon closer examination, it becomes apparent that the actions of Bolton and Pompeo seem to be aligned in prolonging the United States’ unipolar moment, continuing to issue diktats to other countries and failing to recognize the multipolar reality we live in. Their policies and actions are accelerating the dispersal of power away from the US and towards other great powers like Russia and China, both of which also have enormous influence in the Persian Gulf. The threat of causing a conflict in the Persian Gulf, and thereby making the price of oil soar to $300 a barrel, will not save US hegemony but will rather end up accelerating the inevitable end of the US dollar as a global reserve currency. Trump is in danger of being crushed between a Fed that sees the US dollar’s role as the world’s reserve currency collapse, and the need for the Fed to blame someone not linked to the real causes of the collapse, that is to say, the monetary policies adopted through QE to prolong the post-crisis economic agony of 2008. At the same time, with Trump as president, the neocon-Israeli-Saudi supporters see a unique opportunity to strike Iran, a desire that has remained unchanged for 40 years.As foolish as it may seem, a war on Iran could be the perfect option that satisfies all power groups in the United States. The hawks would finally have their war against Tehran, the world economy would sink, and the blame would fall entirely on Trump. The Donald, as a result, would lose any chance of being re-elected so it makes sense for him to call off possible strikes as he did after the US drone was shot out of the sky.

Putin and Xi Jinping prepare for the worst


Our current geopolitical environment requires the careful and considered attention of relevant heads of state. The repeated meetings between Putin and Xi Jinping indicate that Russia and China are actively preparing for any eventuality. The closer we get to economic collapse, the more tensions and chaos increase around the world thanks to the actions of Washington and her close allies. Xi Jinping and Putin, who have inherited this chaotic situation, have met at least a dozen times over the last six months, more recently meeting at least three times over two months. The pressing need is to coordinate and prepare for what will inevitably happen, once again trying to limit and contain the damage by a United States that is completely out of control and becoming a danger to all, allies and enemies alike.

Cyber-Wars: U.S. Struck Iranian Military Computers – Ramps Up Cyber Offensive Against Other Countries

AP sources: US struck Iranian military computers this week By TAMI ABDOLLAH U.S. military cyber forces launched a strike against Iranian military computer systems on Thursday as President Donald Trump backed away from plans for a more conventional military strike in response to Iran’s downing of a U.S. surveillance drone, U.S. officials said Saturday. Two officials told The Associated Press that the strikes were conducted with approval from Trump. A third official confirmed the broad outlines of the strike. All spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly about the operation. The cyberattacks — a contingency plan developed over weeks amid escalating tensions — disabled Iranian computer systems that controlled its rocket and missile launchers, the officials said. Two of the officials said the attacks, which specifically targeted Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps computer system, were provided as options after Iranian forces blew up two oil tankers earlier this month. The IRGC, which was designated a foreign terrorist group by the Trump administration earlier this year, is a branch of the Iranian military. The action by U.S. Cyber Command was a demonstration of the U.S.’s increasingly mature cyber military capabilities and its more aggressive cyber strategy under the Trump administration. Over the last year U.S. officials have focused on persistently engaging with adversaries in cyberspace and undertaking more offensive operations. There was no immediate reaction Sunday morning in Iran to the U.S. claims. Iran has hardened and disconnected much of its infrastructure from the internet after the Stuxnet computer virus, widely believed to be a joint U.S.-Israeli creation, disrupted thousands of Iranian centrifuges in the late 2000s. Under Trump, U.S. military ramps up cyber offensive against other countries With little public scrutiny, the U.S. military has dramatically stepped up its secret hacking of foreign computer networks in a new effort to keep China, Russia, Iran and other adversaries on their heels, current and former U.S. officials tell NBC News. Empowered with new legal authority from both Congress and President Donald Trump, the military’s elite cyber force has conducted more operations in the first two years of the Trump administration than it did in eight years under Obama, officials say — including against Russia, despite Trump’s well-documented affinity for Vladimir Putin. The general in charge of the push, Paul Nakasone, has spoken about the new policy in cryptic terms such as “persistent engagement,” and “defending forward,” without explaining what that means. Multiple current and former American officials briefed on the matter say military hackers are breaking into foreign networks, striking at enemy hackers and planting cyber bombs that would disable infrastructure in the event of a conflict.The officials declined to confirm or deny a New York Times report that an element of these classified operations included hacking into Russia’s power grid, but they said that such a move would be a standard response to similar behavior by Russia and China. U.S. officials have said that those countries have for years planted malware that could turn out the lights in parts of the U.S. “This is no different than a spy satellite,” one senior U.S. official briefed on the matter told NBC News. “What this is is finding vulnerabilities in people’s military and civilian infrastructure. That’s how you should think of it.” Over the last decade, U.S. responses to foreign cyberattacks “have been tenuous, they have been episodic, we really haven’t done anything,” said Nakasone, who is both the commander of U.S. Cyber Command and the director of the National Security Agency, during a question and answer session at the Marshall Forum in April. “We are going to ensure that our adversaries know that that are limits within which they can operate…. No longer are we going to be on the sidelines.”

Either Israel will or Yahweh will, either way it WILL happen – PA Adviser To Abbas Claims Israel Is Plotting To Destroy Al-Aqsa Mosque

‘Entire world will pay’ if mosque on Temple Mount harmed
A prominent adviser to the Palestinian Authority’s Mahmoud Abbas claims Israel is plotting against the Al Aqsa Mosque in its capital, Jerusalem, and if Muslims don’t act decisively, “the entire world will pay.” The Twitter comments by Mahmoud Al-Habbash, Abbas’ adviser on religious and Islamic affairs and a Shariah judge, were spotlighted by Palestinian Media Watch. PMW described him as one of the more important religious figures in the PA. He was “repeating the PA libel that Israel is planning to destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque,” the group said.
Al-Habbash wrote in Twitter: “The “Israeli plot against the Al-Aqsa mosque is becoming more dangerous and expanding from day to day. If the Muslims don’t act now, something will occur whose end is bad and bitter, and then the entire world will pay dearly. The Al-Aqsa mosque is religion and faith, and nothing is too valuable for it. ‘So take warning, O people of vision’ [Quran, Sura 59:2, Sahih International translation].” PMW noted the last warning was a quote from the Quran calling for punishment of the Jews. Quran, Sura 59:2, in the Sahih International translation, reads: “It is he who expelled the ones who disbelieved among the People of the Scripture [Jews] from their homes at the first gathering. You did not think they would leave, and they thought that their fortresses would protect them from Allah; but [the decree of] Allah came upon them from where they had not expected, and he cast terror into their hearts [so] they destroyed their houses by their [own] hands and the hands of the believers. So take warning, O people of vision.” He wrote in April for the official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida: “The battle over Jerusalem that is raging today is not just a battle with a foreign occupation that has occupied [Jerusalem’s] land, but a battle between facts and myth, between truth and falsehood, between justice and injustice, between integrity and distortion, between tolerance and fanaticism, and between good and evil. … And perhaps those who read history well and understand the irrevocable facts of the religion will be calm regarding the final result of this battle, which will not complete its path except in the harbors of the promise for the end of days.”

Shocking! Inside the fraudulent life of Ilhan Omar

You wouldn’t know it from the radio silence of Democratic leaders regarding radioactive Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar’s long-festering and bizarre bigamy scheme (which she still refuses to address), but marriage fraud is a federal felony. As the Department of Homeland Security makes clear, it is a serious crime—not a victimless, harmless infraction—that weakens our nation’s security and makes us less safe.

Eight Mideastern men who plotted to bomb New York landmarks in 1993 all obtained green cards and permanent legal residence by marrying U.S. citizens.

El Sayyid A. Nosair put a ring on American Karen Ann Mills Sweeney’s finger to avoid deportation for overstaying his visa. He acquired U.S. citizenship, allowing him to remain in the country, and was later convicted for conspiracy in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing that claimed six lives.

Top Osama bin Laden aide Ali Mohamed became a U.S. citizen after marrying a woman he met on a plane trip from Egypt to New York. He was convicted for his role in the 1998 U.S. Embassy bombings in Africa that killed 12 Americans and more than 200 others.

A year after 9/11, Homeland Security officials cracked a vast Middle Eastern marriage fraud ring for illegal immigrants in “Operation Broken Vows” that stretched from Boston to South Carolina to California.

Faisal Shahzad, the 2010 Times Square bomb plotter, married an American woman, Huma Mian, in 2008 after spending a decade in the country on foreign student and employment visas.

Anyone capable of and willing to lie to federal officials in face-to-face interviews, falsify government forms under penalty of perjury, and conspire to undermine the integrity of our immigration system is a threat to our country.

Investigations dating back to 2016 by blogger Scott Johnson of Power Line, David North of the Center for Immigration Studies, Alpha News reporter Preya Samsundar, and PJMedia.com reporter David Steinberg have determined that the outspoken Somalian Muslim refugee likely married her own brother named Ahmed Elmi in 2009 for some unknown ill-gotten gain while still informally married to the man she calls her husband and father of her three children, Ahmed Hirsi.

After media pressure and all Omar sought to divorce Elmi. Her use of $6,000 in state campaign funds, some of which went to pay a personal divorce lawyer, is currently under state investigation.

Social media posts, photographic evidence, and publicly available biographical data strongly suggest that Elmi (now living in London) and Omar are siblings with the same father.

Many of the pair’s Instagram and Facebook comments to each other have been deleted. https://50patriots.com/2019/06/shocking-inside-the-fraudulent-life-of-ilhan-omar/

How To Create A Country With No Heart

Outback

Take a lesson in the ultra-radical anti-human, green agenda: It is the identical story in every nation, as clearly seen in Australia. It is not Communism or Fascism, but rather Technocracy, the “science of social engineering.” ⁃ TN Editor

Anti-development policies, land-use sterilisation, climate alarmism and green law-fare are destroying the future for our kids and grandkids. Current policies will stack-and-pack the coasts and major cities leaving a depopulated outback to uncontrolled floods and droughts, lantana and woody-weeds, wild cats and dogs, wild fires, feral pigs and the occasional park ranger or tourist bus.

What has happened to Australia’s once-bipartisan policies favouring decentralisation? Why is every proposal to develop an outback mine, dam, irrigation scheme or a real power station now labelled “controversial” by the ABC and opposed by the ALP/Greens?

This coastal-city focus and the hostility to new outback industry (except for wind/solar toys) has surely reached its zenith with the recent state budget for Queensland.

The population of coastal and metropolitan Queensland is surging with baby-boom retirees, welfare recipients, grey nomads, tourists, overseas students, migrants and winter refugees. But the outback is dying with lagging industry and many aging farmers retiring to the coast. We are creating a country with no heart.

This growing urban and seaside population needs power, water and food.

However two critical power-water-food infrastructure projects that have been on the drawing boards for decades did not even rate a mention in the state budget – an expansion of coal-fired power at Kogan Creek and a water supply dam at Nathan Gorge.

The current policy of all major parties is cluttering the countryside with piddling subsidised intermittent power producers like solar panels and wind turbines plus their expensive network of roads and transmission lines. This is inflating electricity prices, and future generations will see this bi-partisan energy policy as a disastrous blunder. It is also a mistake to encourage or subsidise private electricity cartels and put politicians, not engineers, in charge of power generation…https://www.technocracy.news/how-to-create-a-country-with-no-heart/

Anatomy Of A Failed Solar Power Project: A ‘Large Taxpayer-Funded Pile Of Scrap’

The world will be littered with failed solar and wind projects like this one that are pointedly unable to ever deliver on their utopian promises. Meanwhile, taxpayers get hosed while fat-cat Technocrats get paid hefty salaries. ⁃ TN Editor

It was supposed to supply cheaper, greener energy to up to 5000 homes but after six years and tens of millions of dollars, a cutting-edge solar energy project has produced nothing other than a large taxpayer-funded pile of scrap.

Three thousand solar panels sit unused on a concrete pad after the pioneering Kogan Creek Solar Boost project was shelved due to rusting pipes and “rapidly moving clouds”.

Now the site’s manager alleges the Commonwealth and Queensland governments breached their contractual requirements by never inspecting the doomed $105 million project.

Run by French nuclear group Areva for Queensland state-owned power utility CS Energy, the project was designed to increase efficiency and reduce carbon emissions at the coal-fired Kogan Creek power station near Chinchilla.

The plan had been to use thousands of mirrors to focus solar energy to pre-heat steam used to drive power-generating turbines. The technology’s inventor, Australian scientist Dr David Mills, in 2014 received an Order Of Australia for his work on solar power from the Abbott government…https://www.technocracy.news/anatomy-of-a-failed-solar-power-project-a-large-taxpayer-funded-pile-of-scrap/

The German Green Party Wants To Ban ALL Industrial Farming

The European Green Party is growing alongside the populist movement, and is emerging as the dominant force in Germany. The insanity of banning all industrialized farming would cause massive starvation and even societal collapse. ⁃ TN Editor

The Green party in Germany has said it intends to ban industrial farming as part of a wide-ranging and costly package to combat climate change should they come to power.

Katrin Goering-Eckardt, the party’s leader in the Germany parliament, said her party would establish a fund worth at least €100 billion to finance climate projects including dam construction, reforestation and environmentally friendly transportation projects.

Ms Goering-Eckardt did not go into further details on a timeline for the prohibition of intensively reared meat.

But the proposal is likely to stoke up debate over whether the Greens are still Germany’s Verbotspartei (prohibition party), a nickname they gained in 2013 due to a misjudged plan to introduce a weekly “veggie day”.

Last week Christian Lindner, the leader of the pro-business Free Democrats, warned that the Greens “dream of a meat-less country.”

“Whoever wants to be vegan is free to do so, but the rest of us shouldn’t be banned from eating our schnitzel,” Mr Lindner said.

In a country where pork is still a central part of the diet, such fears have traditionally restricted support for the environmentalists to liberal urban districts…https://www.technocracy.news/the-german-green-party-wants-to-ban-all-industrial-farming/

Penn. College Offers “Queering God” Course

Authored by Ethan Cai via CampusReform.org,

Swarthmore College offers a course on “Queering God,” most recently taught during the spring 2019 semester, that provides a feminist and queer perspective of the Bible, while also exploring God’s gender identity.

The course, taught by Professor Gwynn Kessler, questions whether God is a masculine or feminine figure through the examination of feminist and queer writings. Its course description says the class “stretch[es] the limits of gendering-and sexing-the divine.” Key themes of the class, also outlined in the course description, include gender, embodiment, masculinity, liberation, sexuality, and feminist and queer theory.

“Part of the student community definitely wants to have more representation and to have LGBTQ issues addressed in courses and elsewhere on campus,” a Swarthmore student, who asked to remain anonymous, told Campus Reform. “This means spreading awareness and getting people to action through taking courses like this.”

Natalie, another Swarthmore student who asked for her last name not to be published, noted that the school demonstrates “normalized progressivism, unfazed by even the most controversial topics.”

Queering the Bible is a similar course that the institution offers, which uses Biblical readings from a queer and transgender perspective to explore sex, identity, and gender. Campus Reform has previously reported on the rise of such courses in American academic institutions.

“I took [Queering the Bible] because I’ve always overheard of people claiming that being queer, specifically homosexual, was a sin, or that the Bible said so,” another Swarthmore student, who also asked to remain anonymous, said. “It pushed me to ask questions so absurd that it seems even unthinkable to ask.”

US Warns India Of H-1B Visa Caps Over Data Storage Rules

The United States has warned India that it may impose caps on H-1B work visas for countries which require that foreign companies store data locally, according to Reuters, citing three sources with knowledge of the matter. 

The move comes less than a week after India announced retaliatory tariffs as high as 70% on 28 US products in response to Washington’s refusal to exempt Delhi from higher import taxes on steel and aluminum of up to 120%. 

Talk of the H-1B visa cap – which would restrict the number of skilled foreign workers who are brought into the US each year – comes just days ahead of a scheduled visit to New Delhi by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

On Wednesday, two senior Indian government officials said that they were briefed last week on the visa-cap plan which would reduce issuance between 10% and 15% of the annual quota. There is currently no country-specific limit, however around 70% of the 85,000 or so H-1B work visas issued are granted to Indians.

Russia Warship Through Panama Canal Now In Caribbean

Russian Warship Passes Through Panama Canal Now Transits Caribbean Sea
The Admiral Gorshkov-class frigate, dubbed Project 22350, is one of Russia’s most advanced warship built by Severnaya Verf in Saint Petersburg for the Russian Navy, has passed through the Panama Canal and is currently transiting the Caribbean Sea, a Russian Northern Fleet’s press release said on Tuesday, first reported by TASS News. The Project 22350 transited from the Eastern Pacific Ocean into the Caribbean through the Panama Canal on June 17. “The Northern Fleet’s frigate Admiral of the Fleet of the Soviet Union Gorshkov has passed through the Panama Canal and entered the Caribbean Sea. The other ships of the Northern Fleet’s naval group will pass through the Panama Canal during 24 hours,” the release says. Russian Navy’s Northern Fleet says support vessels were also transiting the Caribbean with Project 22350.

— Rob Lee (@RALee85) June 18, 2019 While it’s not clear on the next port call, Russia could send the frigate to Venezuela and or Cuba, where Moscow maintains support with both countries. Moscow, for the better part of a decade, has had the utmost desire to increase military assets in the Western Hemisphere. Increased Russian activity in the Carribean has triggered the US Navy to reactivate the 2nd fleet to conduct more surveillance operations along the East Coast of the US. Russia’s ability to project naval power in the Carribean shows Moscow is ready to defend its national interest in the Western Hemisphere.

Pentagon War Plans Include Limited Nuclear Use

‘Peace on More-Favorable Terms’: Pentagon War Plans Include Limited Nuclear Weapons Use An unclassified document published last week by senior US military leaders revealed the Pentagon has plans for the limited use of nuclear weapons in a conventional conflict to “create conditions for decisive results and the restoration of strategic stability.” A document by the Joint Chiefs of Staff published on June 11 outlines how the US will strategically and tactically approach the question of nuclear weapons in a variety of conflicts. “Nuclear Weapons: Planning and Targeting” was quickly removed from the Pentagon’s website, but a copy was preserved by the Federation of American Scientists. “Integration of nuclear weapons employment with conventional and special operations forces is essential to the success of any mission or operation,” the Pentagon document says. Noting that both the use and the threat of use of nuclear weapons can have a significant influence on ground operations in a conflict, the document states that commanders must judge whether or not to introduce nuclear weapons into a theater of operations if they “could create conditions for decisive results and the restoration of strategic stability.”
“Employment of nuclear weapons can radically alter or accelerate the course of a campaign,” the document continues. “A nuclear weapon could be brought into the campaign as a result of perceived failure in a conventional campaign, potential loss of control or regime, or to escalate the conflict to sue for peace on more-favorable terms. The potential consequences of using nuclear weapons will greatly influence military operations and vastly increase the complexity of the operational environment.” “My guess is that nuclear weapons will be used sometime in the next hundred years, but that their use is much more likely to be small and limited than widespread and unconstrained,” the document says at the top of a chapter titled “Planning and Targeting.” In February of last year, the Pentagon’s Nuclear Posture Review (NPR) iterated a shift in US strategic thinking for the first time since the dawn of the century: a turn from focusing on the War on Terror inaugurated after the September, 11, 2001, attacks, and the “return to Great Power competition” with Russia and China. Since then, the US has withdrawn from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty with Russia and frustrated attempts to secure an extension of New START (Strategic Arms Limitation Treaty), which is set to expire next year.

EU vs Turkey: Escalating Dispute Over Ankara’s Fossil Fuel Extraction In Region

Jean-Claude Juncker Vows ‘Not Soft’ Measures On Turkey’s ‘Unacceptable’ Actions Near Cyprus Turkey has reportedly sent a second ship to drill in waters near Cyprus amid an escalating dispute with the European Union over Ankara’s fossil fuel extraction activities in the region. The situation is aggravated by the island’s disputed status and the issue of ownership of its natural resources. European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker warned Ankara on Thursday that it could expect a tough response. “We are in full solidarity with Cyprus. What Turkey is doing in the territorial waters of Cyprus is totally unacceptable […] The commission has been charged to propose measures to be taken as soon as possible when it comes to this conflict and we’ll do so, and these will not be soft measures”, Juncker told reporters after the summit in Brussels. Earlier this week, the Council of the European Union called upon Turkey to respect the rights of Cyprus in connection with Ankara’s maritime drilling and instructed the European Commission and other bodies to immediately submit response options. I do not know if it is a good idea…

Turkish Deputy Foreign Minister Faruk Kaymakci reacted by saying that the economic bloc had no right to define boundaries in the Mediterranean region. The first gas deposits were discovered off the coast of Cyprus in 2011 and since then have become a hot issue. Oil and gas exploration off the coast of Cyprus has long been the subject of conflicting jurisdiction claims by Ankara, which backs the independence movement of the Turkish Cypriots in the north of Cyprus, and the internationally recognized Republic of Cyprus, governed by the Greek Cypriot community. Each side believes that exploration for and extraction of natural resources in this area is their inherent right. In early May, Ankara sent its first drilling vessel, the Fatih, to the region.

It subsequently emerged that the deletion of the channel likely came as a result of simultaneous copyright claims made by leftists.

“YouTube has informed us that the disabling of the VOX channel is due to the complaint made by three people who believe that we have used content of theirs,” the party later tweeted, blaming “left-wing activists” for coordinating the takedown.

The party said that other political parties had used the same audiovisual content without being hit by copyright strikes.

“We call on these platforms, who claim to fight online abuse, to pursue groups of progressive trolls who report in an organized manner and for ideological reasons to all those accounts that do not conform to their unique thinking,” the party tweeted.

The Vox Party has 24 seats in the Spanish parliament having obtained over 10% of the vote in the country’s national election earlier this year. The party also has 3 seats in the European parliament.

As we previously reported, just days before the Spanish election in April, Facebook removed numerous large pro-Vox pages which had a combined reach of millions at the request of Avaaz, a left-wing NGO which is funded by George Soros.

Earlier this month, YouTube caved to a wave of contrived mob outrage (coincidentally led by another “Vox” – the left-wing media outlet) and announced it was imposing a major crackdown on “hate speech”.

Hail is getting bigger (Rev. 16:21) – Softball-sized hail damages windshields in Polk County, reports say

Giant hail in Cove, AR Wednesday evening . Picture Courtesy of Vortex Crew_1561041546424.jpg.jpg
How big is a talent of hail? –

Some authorities say that the talent typically weighed about 33 kg (75 lb) varying from 20 to 40 kg.

POLK COUNTY, Ark. – Damage has been reported to windshields from softball-sized hail dropped during Wednesday night storms.

Images posted on social media from Cove and Vandervoort showed the large hail.

A storm report from the National Weather Service (NWS) Office in Little Rock showed the storm moved in just before 7 p.m. and some of the hail was measured at four inches (softball-sized) in diameter at Vandervoort. Other hail in the area was reported at 2.75 and 1.75 inches in diameter.

Significant damage was done to some vehicles in the area, the storm report states.

The NWS in Little Rock is investigating the hail storm and posted this request for help on its Facebook page Thursday morning:
“We’ve seen several pictures of very large hail from yesterday’s storms across Polk County (Vandervoort, Cove) but it’s difficult to determine the size of the hail with a reference of someone’s hand to compare it to. Did anyone save some of the hail, can you send a pic with a ruler/tape measure? We’d like to know how close to a state record size hail (5″) we were, but we need a measurement, thanks!”https://www.kark.com/news/local-news/softball-sized-hail-damages-windshields-in-polk-county-reports-say/2087854897

DHS to Move Biometric Data on Hundreds of Millions of People to Amazon Cloud

By Jack Corrigan,
Staff Correspondent, Nextgov June 19, 2019

The department seeks a new platform to identify people using fingerprints, irises and faces, and eventually DNA, palm prints, scars and tattoos.

The Homeland Security Department is looking to upgrade the software it uses to analyze biometric data on hundreds of millions of people around the globe, and it plans to store that information in Amazon’s cloud.

The agency’s Office of Biometric Identity Management will replace its legacy biometric analysis platform, called the Automated Biometric Identification System, or IDENT, with a new, more robust system hosted by Amazon Web Services, according to a request for information released Monday.

IDENT essentially serves as an enterprisewide clearinghouse for troves of biometric and biographic data collected by the Transportation Security Administration, Customs and Border Protection, Secret Service and other Homeland Security components. The system links fingerprint, iris and face data to biographic information, allowing officials to quickly identify suspected terrorists, immigration violators, criminals and anyone else included in their databases.

In total, IDENT contains information on more than 250 million people, a Homeland Security spokesperson told Nextgov.

According to the solicitation, Homeland Security is in the process of replacing IDENT with the Homeland Advanced Recognition Technology System, or HART. The new system will include the same biometric recognition features as its predecessor, and potentially additional tools that could identify individuals based on DNA, palm prints, scars, physical markings and tattoos.

Whereas IDENT stores records in government-run data centers, the Homeland Security solicitation states “HART will reside in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) FedRAMP certified GovCloud.” Further, “biometric matching capabilities for fingerprint, iris, and facial matching will be integrated with HART in the Amazon Web Services GovCloud.” Amazon Web Services will also store HART’s biometric image data.

Amazon Web Services’ GovCloud US-East and US-West regions are data centers specifically built by the company to house some of the government’s most restricted information. AWS is no stranger to hosting sensitive government data, having already claimed the CIA, Defense Department, NASA and other federal agencies as customers in part because of perceived security improvements over government legacy systems.

When reached for comment, an AWS spokesperson referred inquiries to DHS.

In 2018, Northrop Grumman won a $95 million contract to develop the first two stages of the HART system, and its…..https://www.nextgov.com/it-modernization/2019/06/dhs-move-biometric-data-hundreds-millions-people-amazon-cloud/157837/

A former Walt Disney Company Vice President was sentenced Friday to nearly seven years in prison for sexually abusing a 7-year-old girl following a child abuse investigation.

According to court documents, Laney, 73, began abusing the victim in 2009, when she was about 7-years-old, and there were multiple incidents of abuse spanning about two years

Laney will serve 81 months for four counts of first-degree child sexual abuse.

Judge Benjamin Souede had previously acquitted Laney of three counts of first-degree rape and three counts of first-degree sex abuse.

Michael Laney attempted to wriggle out of the prison sentence by claiming that his wife is too sick to be left alone.

Former Disney executive Michael Laney was sentenced on Friday to more than six years in prison for sexually abusing a 7 year old girl.

Angry Mob Cut Off Pedophile’s Genitals After Catching Him Raping Girl

by Nwo Report
A pedophile rapist had his genitals hacked off with a knife before being beaten to death by angry community members after he was caught gang-raping two young girls at gunpoint.

A pedophile rapist had his genitals hacked off with a knife before being beaten to death by angry community members after he was caught gang-raping two young girls at gunpoint.

The suspect was one of three men who allegedly raped two teenagers, one of whom was just 14-years-old.

According to investigators, the attack happened in Ivory Park, near Johannesburg, South Africa on Saturday night.

Police officers say the two teen victims were walking through the area when they were confronted by the gang who was armed with a gun and a knife.

The three men then repeatedly raped the pair until a passerby saw what was happening and raised the alarm, News 24 reports.

Then the “tight-knit community” went to work and quickly formed a vigilante group to dish out what the local media is describing as “rough justice.”

A group of locals quickly assembled to rescue the young girls from the attack. The group confronted the three men but two of them managed to escape.

The third man was caught, however, and was castrated with a knife before being killed, officers said.

Police are now hunting for the two alleged rapists and have opened a murder investigation into the mob killing, though no arrests have been made, according to Gauteng police spokesperson Colonel Lungelo Dlamini.”

SAPS Provincial Spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Lungelo Dlamini.

Allegations are that two girls who were walking to Lindokuhle informal settlement were confronted by suspects armed with a knife and a firearm,” said Dlamini.

“The suspects then raped them repeatedly.”

In a similar incident, last year in East London, South Africa, a preacher who was suspected of raping a nine-year-old girl died after the victim’s father severed his penis.

Preacher Mase Malgas, 66, died from his injuries on September 30 after the girl’s father hacked off his genitals, a South Africa courtroom was told.

The defendant had been informed by his ex-wife that their daughter had been raped and that Mr. Malgas was the culprit, according to Constable Lundi Nqwelo who was summoned as a witness by the state prosecutors.

Mr. Malgas was tracked down by the defendant, his ex-wife and a friend of the couple at St Philips Church in Gompo.The group burst into Malgas’ home and proceeded to sever his penis, the court heard.

He did not finish the castration, but left the preacher with ‘severe’ wounds, the court heard.

Malgas was then taken by the group, at this point in a life-threatening condition, to the Scenery Park Police Station in the hope he would be arrested.

An East London police officer then rang in for immediate medical assistance, but Mr. Malgas later died in hospital.

Report Suggests China Preparing Muslims in Concentration Camps for Organ Harvesting

A nonpartisan tribunal published a report Tuesday accusing China of “crimes against humanity,” cutting organs out of Falun Gong practitioners alive to transplant into paying clients, and potentially preparing an “organ bank” using the millions of mostly Uighur Muslims believed trapped in concentration camps in western China.

The China Tribunal – a panel of international legal experts led by Sir Geoffrey Nice, chief prosecutor in the case against Serbian war criminal Slobodan Milošević – held hearings featuring victims of China’s brutal repression of Falun Gong practitioners and ethnic Uighurs as well as eyewitnesses who testified to seeing and participating in organ testing and harvesting. The tribunal repeatedly highlighted in its report that it attempted to contact the Chinese government and bring in witnesses favorable to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), but China failed to cooperate.

It concluded that China is currently harvesting organs from Falun Gong practitioners and has begun extensive testing of its captive Uighur camp population that does not have any other overt utility outside of organ harvesting. It also concluded that “some Tibetan Buddhists and House Church Christians” (those who do not worship in government-run churches) have likely suffered forced organ harvesting.

Perhaps most shockingly, the Tribunal noted that its investigators reached out to dozens of Chinese hospitals asking for help in finding organs for a transplant, and over a dozen of them openly stated they were currently using the organs of Falun Gong practitioners in transplants or could acquire them. Another 14 hospitals admitted they used organs illicitly harvested from prisoners, but did not specify if they were political prisoners or common convicts.

Chinese officials have openly admitted to using prisoners to harvest organs for transplants, but claimed to have ended the practice in 2014. As recently as 2017, Chinese state media applauded itself for its “fair” organ donation system that it claimed was “hailed” by the international community.

Falun Gong, or Falun Dafa, is a spiritual movement based in elements of Buddhism and Taoism that focuses on meditation and light exercises as methods of self-improvement. The atheist Chinese regime branded Falun Gong an “evil cult” under former Chinese President Jiang Zemin and has brutally repressed practitioners of the spiritual movement for decades.

The evidence the China Tribunal compiled, alongside multiple previous studies arriving at similar conclusions and the testimonies of their authors, indicated that China continues to harvest organs without consent from political prisoners and that it may be preparing to do so with the Uighurs it has trapped in what survivors call “concentration camps” in western Xinjiang province. Chinese officials defend the camps by claiming them to be necessary “vocational centers” that train underprivileged Uighurs to find better jobs, a claim undermined by the high number of educated and employed people trapped in the camps.

In May, Randall Schriver, the Pentagon’s assistant secretary of defense for Indo-Pacific Security Affairs, estimated that China has placed as many as 3 million Uighur, Kazakh, and Kyrgyz Muslims in Xinjiang concentration camps. Survivors say they undergo systematic torture and indoctrination at the camps; officials force them to learn Mandarin, the dominant Han language, eat pork, and memorize songs praising the Communist Party and its leader, Xi Jinping. Those who do not comply face excruciating torture.

The China Tribunal report‘s clearest evidence that China is nonconsensually harvesting organs comes from the fact that Chinese hospitals have admitted to it. Its detailed testimony from Falun Gong practitioners and Uighurs serves to prove, however, the systematic dehumanizing of these groups, which facilitates their use for spare organs to sell to needy clients. The report combines this testimony with a clear discrepancy in the number of organs China claims it has available per transplants conducted. According to the report:

In the PRC [People’s Republic of China] there is a mismatch between the number of donors who become ‘eligible’ each year by dying and the number of actual transplants performed each year. There are more transplants than could possibly come from the number of registered or ‘elgible’ donors. Given that the PRC asserts that it no longer uses executed prisoners for organ transplant purposes the very substantial mismatch is wholly unexplained and demands justification.

The evidence of dehumanizing torture of Falun Gong practitioners featured extensive testimony of outrageous violations of the prisoners’ dignity. In one example, a witness testified of the torture of a Falun Gong practitioner, saying:

They shoved faeces into his mouth. They forced a toilet brush handle into his anus. They pushed the handle so hard that he couldn’t defecate. They also handled his genitals and forced his back against an extremely hot heating unit. They woke him at night by pouring cold water on him, or by piercing his skin with needles.

“Every witness that appeared before the Tribunal and who identified as a Falun Gong practitioner had been arrested and imprisoned, and then tortured whilst incarcerated,” the tribunal noted.

Enver Tothi – a surgeon who admitted in the 2014 investigative report The Slaughter to performing a live organ extraction out of a prisoner while working in Xinjiang’s capital, Urumqi – told the panel he has reason to believe the Chinese regime is preparing to expand its organ base with the imprisoned Uighur population. He noted that China gave “free national health examinations” to all Uighurs in 2016, providing them with key information on organ compatibility.

In December 2018, the author of The Slaughter, Ethan Gutman, told the Tribunal, “Over the last 18 months, literally every Uyghur man, woman, and child – about 15 million people – have been blood and DNA tested, and that blood testing is compatible with tissue matching.”

Similar testing is occurring in the Uighur camps, according to survivors who spoke to the Tribunal. The report concluded that the testing as described, particularly the use of ultrasounds to evaluate the health of various organs in each prisoner, was “highly suggestive of methods used to assess organ function.”

The Tribunal concluded that organ harvesting among Falun Gong practitioners continued, but it did not have evidence to confirm widespread organ harvesting among Uighurs. It further accused China of crimes against humanity, but not “genocide,” because it did not have evidence confirming that the destruction of ethnic or religious groups, and not merely profits from organ transplants, were driving the practice.

NBC News estimated that China’s transplant trade is worth $1 billion a year.

The report follows a week in which the United Nations concluded a visit to Xinjiang and lauded the Chinese government for its alleged battle against Muslim terrorists, failing to mention the Uighur camps. China’s state-run Global Times newspaper suggested that “via the platforms of the U.N.” China could export the camps worldwide.

WOW: In Historic Decision, Supreme Court Drops ‘In God We Trust’ Decision On Dems

by Nwo Report

Source: Martin

The United States made a historical move late last week and declined to take up a legal challenge from an Atheist who wanted to remove “In God We Trust” on all U.S. coins and currency.

As noted by the Washington Examiner, the nation’s highest court rejected the challenge from atheist Michael Newdow, who claimed the inclusion of the phrase on American currency violated the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment.

The Establishment Clause declares that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion.”

A 1955 law passed by Congress requires all currency to include the phrase “In God We Trust,” but it actually first appeared on coins dating all the way back to 1864.

Here’s more from the Examiner:

Newdow claimed that “by mandating the inscription of facially religious text on every coin and currency bill,” the government thereby deemed atheists “political outsiders.”

The lawsuit also argued that the phrase violated the Fifth Amendment’s due process clause and the 1993 Religious Freedom Restoration Act because it forces “Petitioners (who are Atheists) to bear and proselytize that Montheistic message.”

The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals dismissed Newdow’s case in 2018, arguing the phrase “does not compel citizens to engage in a religious observance.” The Supreme Court elected not to rule on the case, instead letting the circuit court’s decision stand.

Newdow has brought forth other challenges to what he perceives as government endorsements of religion. In 2004, he unsuccessfully argued the words “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance violated the First Amendment.

Newdow also tried to stop the phrase “So help me God” from being used in the 2009, 2013, and 2017 presidential inauguration ceremonies, but was unsuccessful in court.

The BEST Collection Of Pro-Trump News On The Planet – TrendingPolitics.com!

The Examiner notes that Newdow has a long history of trying to legally challenge the federal government from using phrases that include the word “God.”

Newdow has mounted several challenges to what he claims is the government’s unconstitutional endorsement of religion.

In 2004, he brought a case arguing the words “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance violated the First Amendment, though was unsuccessful before the Supreme Court.

He also sought to block Chief Justice John Roberts from saying the phrase “So help me God” while administering the presidential oath of office to President Barack Obama during his inauguration in 2009.

Newdow also sought to stop the phrase from being recited in the 2013 and 2017 inaugurations. A federal court threw out that lawsuit, and the Supreme Court in 2011 declined to take up the case.

While it’s true that the First Amendment states that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion,” the Supreme Court didn’t feel that the motto was in violation of any laws.

And, more importantly, the SCOTUS completely dismissed the case without even feeling the need to explain why.

Another day, another failed anti-religious lawsuit from a deranged liberal.

Fallen angelic hybrids/Disclosure coming soon – TRUTH IS OUT THERE Politicians’ top secret briefings on UFOs revealed as latest admission US government takes sightings seriously

TOP US politicians have been given a secret briefing about UFOs, it has been revealed.

The Senators on the Intelligence Committee were given the briefing about a series of encounters between US Navy planes and unidentified aircraft, one of them has said.

 US Navy pilots ‘spotted hypersonic UFOs performing manoeuvres beyond physical limits of humans on a daily basis in 2014 and 2015’
US Navy pilots ‘spotted hypersonic UFOs performing manoeuvres beyond physical limits of humans on a daily basis in 2014 and 2015’

A spokeswoman for Senator Mark Warner, the vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, confirmed the briefing took place.

“If naval pilots are running into unexplained interference in the air, that’s a safety concern Senator Warner believes we need to get to the bottom of,” Rachel Cohen told Politico.

Donald Trump said he too has been briefed on UFOs but admitted he doesn’t believe in them.

The Navy itself didn’t comment on the latest meeting but has in the past confirmed that it provides briefings for the Congressional members by Naval Intelligence officials as well as aviators.

Earlier this year, the Navy revealed there have been reported sightings of UFOs hovering above top-secret military bases and flying near aircraft.

The daily sightings came over the course of 2014 and 2015 and were reported to the Pentagon and Congress.

Briefing requests by Congress members have been on the increase since it was revealed  the Pentagon’s shadowy Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP) still investigates UFO sightings, the New York Post reported.

How many alien and UFO sightings have there been?

The number of UFO sightings is currently flying at an all-time high

According to data cruncher and blogger Sam Monfort there are around 45,000 annual reported sightings in the US.

He also says there have been more than 100,000 recorded UFO sightings in the past 100-plus years.

The first recorded flyby occurred in Portland in 1905, where viewers reported seeing a “buzzing” sphere-shaped UFO that descended from the heavens.

Sightings have spiked dramatically over the past 30-plus years with mysterious lights taking over from saucers as the most popular description of objects spotted.

The National UFO Reporting Centre is an organisation that investigates sightings.

Since it was set up in 1974, reports have been sent to it via its 24 hour hotline and it says that between May and June this year there have been more than 500 new sightings.

The United States collectively reports 2,500 sightings per 10 million people, which is 300 times more than the global median.

The existence of the AATIP was revealed in 2017, along with a 33-second DOD video that shows an airborne object being chased by two Navy jets off the coast of San Diego in 2004.

At the time, former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid took credit for arranging $22 million in annual funding for the AATIP, telling the New York Times that it was “one of the good things I did in my congressional service.”
Reid’s home state of Nevada hosts the top-secret military installation known as “Area 51,” long rumoured to be the storehouse for an alien craft that crashed in Roswell, New Mexico, in 1947.

The service is drafting new guidelines for pilots and other naval employees so it’s easier for them to report any mysterious objects they spot in the sky.

A few years ago, a leaked report from the Pentagon revealed that a supersonic UFO shaped like a Tic Tac sweet had stalked a US Aircraft carrier for days before vanishing into thin air.https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/9335899/politicians-briefings-ufos-government-sightings-seriously/

“We Don’t Need Another Apology”: Congressional Hearing Erupts In Boos As Black Student Trashes Reparations Bill

Nothing infuriates the left like listening to a minority express a conservative opinion. And so it was on Wednesday when a black student who was descended from slaves who worked on Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello plantation said he opposed the idea of reparations, saying “the people who are owed for slavery are no longer here” and “we are not entitled to collect on their debts.” 

Quillette writer Coleman Hughes, who spoke at the hearing, dismissed a bill to study the prospect of reparations as “a moral and political mistake.” The crowd at the hearing, held by the House Judiciary Committee’s subcommittee on the constitution, civil rights, and civil liberties, booed when Hughes said “black people don’t need another apology…we need safer schools and better schools. We need a better criminal justice system….we need better health care. And none of these things can be achieved through reparations for slavery.”

Israel Holds Largest “Hezbollah War Exercise” In Years Amid Iran Tensions

Israel conducted the largest military drill it’s held in years during the first half of this week, according to the AP, which described the exercise as intended a simulated “future war” against Hezbollah

The four-day war games concluded on Wednesday, and though pre-planned, came just days following the tanker attack incident in the Gulf of Oman which has sent tensions between Washington and Tehran soaring. The exercise focused on an Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) multi-pronged all-branch deployment against threats on Israel’s northern border

Israeli officials have cited fears that Tehran could mobilize its Lebanese proxy force to mount a major attack on Israel’s north. To simulate a response to such an attack, which is reminiscent to the 2006 Israeli-Hezbollah war which took place in southern Lebanon, the IDF deployed a large fleet of unmanned aircraft and F-35 stealth jets, along with simulating tunnel operations — an infiltration tactic long used by Hezbollah as well as Palestinian Hamas. 

According to the AP, statements made by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as he observed part of the drill didn’t reference Hezbollah by name, though it was clear the Lebanese Shia militant group was being referenced.

“I am very impressed by the improvement in readiness, by the fighting spirit of the soldiers and commanders, and mainly by the destructive power,” Netanyahu said. “I say to our enemies: The (military) has very great destructive power. Don’t test us.”

However on Tuesday Israeli President Reuven Rivlin did single out the “threat” from across the country’s northern border: “We caution Hezbollah not to subordinate Lebanon to Iran’s agenda, and we caution Lebanon not to be used as a launching pad for attacks against Israel,” Rivlin said. “We are not happy to go to war, but the military is fully prepared to respond to any threat and any scenario.”…https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-06-19/israel-holds-largest-hezbollah-war-exercise-years-amid-iran-tensions

Putin: U.S. Use Of Force Against Iran Would Be A ‘Disaster’

Putin says use of US force against Iran would be ‘disaster’  Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday said any use of force by the US against Iran would lead to disaster as tensions escalate between Washington and Tehran. “The US says it does not rule out the use of force… This would be a disaster for the region,” Putin said during an annual televised phone-in with screened questions posed by Russian viewers. “It would lead to a surge in violence and an increase in the number of refugees,” he said, adding that the consequences of intervention would be “difficult to calculate”. Moscow has backed Tehran in its stand off with the United States since Washington pulled out of an international 2015 nuclear agreement with Iran last year. Putin repeated Russia’s insistence that sanctions against Iran are “unreasonable”. The comment comes at a time of growing antagonism between Iran and the US following two waves of still unexplained attacks on Gulf shipping, which Washington has blamed on Tehran. Iran has denied any involvement and hinted that the US might have orchestrated them itself to provide a pretext for the use of force against the Islamic republic. On Thursday tensions also heightened after the Pentagon confirmed that Iranian forces had shot down a US naval surveillance drone. The US has insisted the aircraft was in international air space but Iran has said the drone had violated Iranian airspace.

India Deploys Warships To Persian Guld Amid Rising Tensions

The Indian Navy is deploying multiple vessels to the Persian Gulf and the Gulf of Oman, to provide “security” for Indian-flagged ships traversing the area. The decision follows multiple attacks on merchant ships there. Designating the move “Operation Sankalp” (resolution), an Indian Navy spokesperson announced on Thursday that two warships would be deployed for “maritime security” in the troubled waters between Iran, Oman and Saudi Arabia. The vessels will be backed up by air cover and surveillance assets. #IndianNavy executes ‘Operation Sankalp’ – Deploys INS Chennai & INS Sunayna in the Gulf of Oman, to re-assure Indian Flagged Vessels operating/ transiting through Persian Gulf & Gulf of Oman following the maritime security incidents in the region 1/n (rep images) pic.twitter.com/N1Kn8AXNey

The already strained situation in the Persian Gulf intensified dramatically after two oil tankers were attacked in the Gulf of Oman last week. While no concrete evidence proving who was responsible has been released, US authorities have blamed Iran for the incident. The escalating stand-off eventually led to Iran downing a US surveillance drone.

Proving that they are not messing around and given the still highly volatile situation, one of the vessels New Delhi has sent out for security detail is the INS Chennai, a stealth guided-missile destroyer regarded as one of the most powerful warships in India’s fleet.

President Donald Trump on Thursday told reporters that “you’ll soon find out” whether the U.S. will strike Iran as tensions between the two countries ratcheted up.

U.S. officials said earlier in the day that an Iranian missile had shot down an American drone over the Strait of Hormuz. Iran claimed that the drone was above its territory.

Trump tweeted “Iran made a very big mistake!” earlier Thursday.

US Navy drone shot down by Iranian missile over Strait of Hormuz in ‘unprovoked attack,’ central command

A U.S. Navy high-altitude drone was shot down Thursday by an Iranian surface-to-air missile over the Strait of Hormuz amid heightened tensions in the region after last week’s attacks on two oil tankers, according to military officials.

U.S. Central Command said in a statement the that a U.S. Navy Broad Area Maritime Surveillance ISR aircraft, known as a BAMS-D, was shot down by an Iranian surface-to-air missile system while operating in international airspace over the Strait of Hormuz at approximately 7:35 p.m. ET on Wednesday.

“Iranian reports that the aircraft was over Iran are false,” Capt. Bill Urban, a U.S. Central Command spokesman, said in a statement. “This was an unprovoked attack on a U.S. surveillance asset in international airspace.”

The U.S. Navy’s RQ-4A Global Hawk drone was over international airspace and about 17 miles from Iran at the time, a military source told Fox News.  The drone provides real-time intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance missions  “over vast ocean and coastal regions,” according to the military.

Iran also tried to shoot down another drone, but missed, U.S. officials told Fox News. Officials are now scrambling to find the wreckage in the water before Iranian forces do.

The Navy RQ-4A Global Hawk drone deployed to the Middle East in the past few days as part of reinforcements approved by President Trump last month.

The high-altitude drone can fly up to 60,000 feet or 11 miles in altitude and loiter for 30 hours at a time. It’s used to spy on Iranian military communications and track shipping in the busy waterways. Each drone costs up to $180 million dollars.

The Navy MQ-4C Triton drone deployed to the Middle East in the past few days as part of reinforcements approved by President Trump last month.

Besides the drone incident, U.S. officials told Fox News that Iranian-backed forces fired cruise missiles Wednesday night into Saudi Arabia hitting a power plant. The attacks come against the backdrop of heightened tensions between the U.S. and Iran following President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw from Tehran’s nuclear deal a year ago.

A commander for Iran’s Revolutionary Guard claimed the drone was shot down over Iranian airspace which sends a “clear message” to the U.S., and marked the first direct Iranian-claimed attack amid the crisis.

“We do not have any intention for war with any country, but we are fully ready for war,” Revolutionary Guard commander Gen. Hossein Salami said in a televised address.

Iran’s paramilitary Revolutionary Guard, which answers only to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said it shot down the drone on Thursday morning when it entered Iranian airspace near the Kouhmobarak district in southern Iran’s Hormozgan province. Kouhmobarak is some 750 miles southeast of Tehran and close to the Strait of Hormuz.

CAL THOMAS: IS WAR WITH IRAN INEVITABLE?

The Guard said it shot down the drone at 4:05 a.m. after it collected data from Iranian territory, including the southern port of Chahbahar near Iran’s border with Pakistan. Iran used its air defense system known as Third of Khordad to shoot down the drone — a truck-based missile system that can fire up to 18 miles into the sky, the semi-official Fars news agency reported.

The Guard described the drone as being launched from the southern Persian Gulf but did not elaborate. American RQ-4A Global Hawks are stationed at the Al-Dhafra Air Base in the United Arab Emirates, near the capital, Abu Dhabi.

Salami, speaking to a crowd in the western city of Sanandaj, described the American drone as “violating our national security border.”

“Borders are our red line,” Salami said. “Any enemy that violates the borders will be annihilated.”

The U.S. said Iran fired a missile at another drone last week that responded to the attack on two oil tankers near the Gulf.

Another senior U.S. official told Fox News last week that an MQ9 Reaper drone was fired on by the Iranians shortly after it arrived at the scene where the MV Altair tanker sent out a distress signal.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has blamed Iran for the “blatant assault” on oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman.

After the tanker incident, Pompeo said his assessment was based on “intelligence, the weapons used, the level of expertise needed to execute the operation, recent similar Iranian attacks on shipping, and the fact that no proxy group operating in the area has the resources and proficiency to act with such a high degree of sophistication.”

Just another reason to OBEY YAHWEH’S LAWS, especially dietary laws. Flesh-Eating Bacteria In New Jersey Reveals One Possible Effect Of Climate Change, Study Says

TRENTON, N.J. (CNN) — Climate change may lead to unlikely illnesses in unexpected places, new research suggests. In the past two years, five cases of Vibrio vulnificus, a flesh-eating bacterial infection spread by handling or eating contaminated seafood, have been tied to Delaware Bay, where water temperatures have been on the rise in recent years, according to a study.

These five patients were treated at one New Jersey hospital and serve as a warning that flesh-eroding bacterial infections are now occurring outside the traditional geographic boundaries, the authors said.

“It is important for physicians — who may have never seen this infection before in their medical practice — to have some awareness,” co-author Dr. Katherine Doktor, an infectious disease specialist at Cooper University Health Care, wrote in an email.

Before 2017, Cooper University Hospital in Camden, New Jersey, had seen only one case of severe Vibrio infection in eight years, explained Doktor, also an assistant professor at Cooper Medical School at Rowan University. Then, in just two years, the hospital saw and treated five patients, one of whom died.

Favorable conditions for bacteria
“Significant increases in sea surface temperatures” have occurred over the past three decades in many regions of the United States, noted the study, published Monday in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine. Warmer temperatures led to changes in the “quantity, distribution, and seasonal windows of bacteria” in the coastal ecosystem while providing “more favorable conditions for Vibrio,” Doktor said.

Though Vibrio is endemic off the coast of Virginia and Maryland in Chesapeake Bay, as well as waters across the southern United States, these illnesses rarely occur from cooler Delaware Bay, whose waters splash southern New Jersey.

“While the infection is still rare, it is being seen with more frequency in this region,” Doktor said.

The five patients, who received treatment at New Jersey’s Cooper University Hospital, illustrate this changing reality:

A 38-year-old man arrived at the hospital vomiting, feverish and with a skin rash on his tender left calf. His blood cultures confirmed Vibrio, already evident by his dying skin. Though he had not been near Delaware Bay, he worked at a New Jersey restaurant that possibly served seafood from the bay. Successful treatment, which included skin grafts, led to his discharge from the hospital.

The second patient, a 64-year-old man, sought medical care two days after cleaning and eating Delaware Bay crabs. His right hand had begun to swell. After verifying Vibrio, his doctors removed portions of deep connective tissue. During a third attempt to remove all the dead and dying skin, the rhythm of the patient’s heart became erratic and he died.

A third man, 46 years old, appeared at Cooper University Hospital complaining of a swollen left leg two days after he injured himself while crabbing in Delaware Bay. Skin and blood cultures verified a Vibrio infection. Oozing blisters on his calf led doctors to remove connective tissue and then perform grafts.

Arriving at the hospital with a severely swollen right leg, a 60-year-old man went into shock followed by respiratory failure. He had been crabbing in Delaware Bay and had made a meal of a dozen crabs. Excessive clotting blocked his small blood vessels, and his four limbs became “mummified” and so required amputation, wrote the study authors. Delayed arrival at the hospital caused the severity of his Vibrio infection.

The final patient, a 64-year-old man, had slashed his right leg on a Delaware Bay crab trap before appearing at Cooper University Hospital. Bleeding lesions on his right arm led to shock. The hospital confirmed Vibrio and removed the dying tissue in his arm.

“In all the cases we’ve seen, the patients have had known risk factors (liver disease, diabetes, or other immune compromise) when a break in the skin was exposed to water and/or [when the patient] consumed uncooked shellfish harvested from the Delaware Bay,” Doktor wrote…https://philadelphia.cbslocal.com/2019/06/18/flesh-eating-bacteria-in-new-jersey-reveals-one-possible-effect-of-climate-change-study-says/

Sex doll maker creates replicas of dead partners to combat loneliness: ‘I’m providing comfort’

A sex doll business owner offers a special bereavement service for those suffering from loneliness, whereby she’ll create a replica of their dead partner. Mum-of-four Jade Stanley, 35, launched Sex Doll Official in 2018, a company which sells customisable dolls designed for different purposes. Speaking on This Morning with hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield, Jade, who was joined by sex doll Amelia, opened up about one service they offer where they create a replica of deceased partners. Asked if she had people ask for a doll of their dead partner, Jade said: ‘Yes I’ve actually had it. Loneliness is a massive issue in the UK and I think one of the most surprising aspects of this industry for me, is really it’s not all seedy and sexual. It really isn’t.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) could oversee one of the nation’s most aggressive climate plans under legislation agreed to yesterday. Gabriele Holtermann-Gorden/Pacific Press/Newscom

Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) said yesterday he has reached an agreement with legislative leaders over a bill to slash New York’s greenhouse gas emissions, setting the stage for one of the most significant state climate victories since President Trump took office.

The announcement, coming just days before the close of the legislative session, represented a big victory for climate activists, who have spent three years pushing for major legislation to curb greenhouse gases in the Empire State.

Lawmakers were still working on final amendments yesterday, but the outlines of the deal were becoming clear. The legislation calls for reducing emissions by 40% from 1990 levels by 2030 and 85% by 2050. The remaining 15% of emissions would be offset, making the state carbon neutral. The bill would also require that all electricity generation come from carbon-free sources by 2040. A Climate Action Council would be established to ensure the state meets its targets.

“I believe we have an agreement, and I believe it is going to pass,” Cuomo said in a radio interview on WAMC.

Trump spiritual adviser says ‘demonic networks’ have aligned themselves against president

President Trump‘s spiritual adviser, Paula White, said in the opening prayer before his campaign kickoff rally in Orlando, Fla., on Tuesday that “demonic networks” have aligned themselves against the president. 

“Let every demonic network that has aligned itself against the purpose, against the calling of President Trump, let it be broken, let it be torn down in the name of Jesus,” she said to a crowd of Trump’s supporters before his rally began Tuesday.

“I declare that President Trump will overcome every strategy from hell and every strategy from the enemy,” she added, according to video of her remarks.  

“I secure his calling, I secure his purpose, I secure his family, and we secure victory in the name which is above every name … the name of Jesus Christ,” she said ending her prayer. https://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/449226-trump-spiritual-adviser-a-demonic-network-aligned-itself-against-the

A Morphological Adaptation? (I wonder what the Mark of the Beast will be doing to humans who accept it? Scary.) Smartphones Now Transforming The Human Skeleton

Modern life is transforming the human skeleton. Humans are now developing a bone spike at the back of the head caused by regularly looking down at their smartphones, according to a recent study.

The phenomenon is called an external occipital protuberance: a lump on the back of the head believed to be caused by the body reacting to smartphone use by growing new bone layers on the back of the skull.

David Shahar, a health scientist at the University of The Sunshine Coast, Australia, told BBC that in the last twenty years, he has noticed a spike in patients who have the extra bone layers was once considered rare.

The study was published in the Journal of Anatomy in 2016, Shahar and his co-author wrote how they discovered the phenomenon in x-rays of millennials at his clinic. He examined 218 radiographs of the lateral cervical spine, where external occipital protuberance appeared in 18 to 30-year-olds.

Of the group, 41% had the lump, with 10% having a spike at least 20mm long. The study noted it was more common in men than women, at 67% versus 20%. The longest was 35.7mm in a man and 25.5mm in a woman.

The extra bone is a type of enthesophytes, which is abnormal bony projections located on a tendon or ligament. Enthesophytes are common in baby boomers but not so much with millennials until the last decade.https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-06-17/morphological-adaptation-smartphones-now-transforming-human-skeleton

Evidence The US Economy Could Be Plunging Into A Very Deep Recession Is Rapidly Mounting

Authored by Michael Snyder via The Economic Collapse blog,

Not since 2008 have we seen so much bad economic data come rolling in all at the same time. 

Even without a war with Iran, which by the way is looking increasingly likely with each passing day, it definitely appears that the U.S. economy is steamrolling toward recession territory.  The employment numbers for last month were abysmal, global trade has collapsed to the lowest level that we have seen since the last recession, and manufacturing numbers just keep getting worse and worse.  In fact, the New York Fed’s Empire State manufacturing index just suffered the worst one month decline in history…https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-06-18/evidence-us-economy-could-be-plunging-very-deep-recession-rapidly-mounting

Maxine Waters Demands Facebook Stop All Development Of Libra Crypto Project

Who could have seen this coming?

Just hours after the announcement, and release of a white paper, of its new cyrpocurrency, called Libra, the US government has decided its time to intervene – likely for the good of us all.

Rep. Patrick McHenry, senior Republican on the House Financial Services Committee, wrote a letter Tuesday to committee Chair Maxine Waters, a Democrat, demanding a hearing on the Facebook cryptocurrency initiative, according to Reuters.

Unlike existing digital currencies, Facebook has a worldwide platform and scale that can impact global payments and the digital currency market…”

“We know there are many open questions as to the scope and scale of the project and how it will conform to our global financial regulatory framework…

It is incumbent upon us as policymakers to understand Project Libra. We need to go beyond the rumors and speculations and provide a forum to assess this project and its potential unprecedented impact on the global financial system”, McHenry said in a letter, cited by Reuters.

Waters, not exactly known for her cutting-edge financial smarts, responded quickly by demanding that Facebook should halt development of its announced cryptocurrency until Congress and regulators conduct a review.

Reuters reports that Waters also said Facebook executives should testify before Congress about the product, saying the company has “repeatedly shown a disregard for the protection and careful use of this data.”…https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-06-18/maxine-waters-demands-facebook-stop-all-development-libra-crypto-project

Senators Reach Bipartisan Deal On Trump Border Funding

In what appears to be a win for President Trump, a bipartisan agreement has been reached in the Senate Appropriations Committee on a $4.6 billion funding package to address the “humanitarian crisis” at the southern border with Mexico.

CNN reports that the agreement, according to three people familiar with the deal, between Chairman Richard Shelby, an Alabama Republican, and Vermont Sen. Patrick Leahy, the top Democrat on the panel, includes $2.88 billion for the Department of Health and Human Services to be directed to the Office of Refugee Resettlement, which administration officials warned lawmakers would run out of money by the end of this month without the emergency cash infusion.

The Committee will reportedly mark up the agreement on Wednesday and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has said he plans to put it on the Senate floor by the end of next week.

Of course there is one hitch to all of this… The House (where, as Bloomberg notes, Democrats have sought to ensure that funds in the package wouldn’t be used to build Trump’s border wall or pay for raids on undocumented immigrants within the US).

As Bloomberg notes, The House plans to vote on a separate border package next week, according to Representative Henry Cuellar, a Texas Democrat who has become a point person on the issue for Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

If that plan differs from the Senate effort, the House and Senate could convene a conference committee to work out the differences.

Which means it won’t see the light of day as it appears, despite much begging for money and assistance from the left, the public face of the Democratic House refuses to admit there is any illegal immigration crisis whatsoever….https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-06-18/senators-reach-bipartisan-deal-trump-border-funding

U.S. Bombing Of Iran: ‘Will Be Massive But Limited To A Specific Target’

According to the Jerusalem Posta bombing campaign is being planned that “will be massive but will be limited to a specific target”…


According to the officials, since Friday, the White House has been holding incessant discussions involving senior military commanders, Pentagon representatives and advisers to President Donald Trump. The military action under consideration would be an aerial bombardment of an Iranian facility linked to its nuclear program, the officials further claimed. “The bombing will be massive but will be limited to a specific target,” said a Western diplomat. If this happens, it will start a war. Iran is home to more than 81 million people, it is armed to the teeth, and it is the global central hub for Shia Islam. It would be the biggest war that the United States has fought since World War II, and the Iranians would fight to the death and they would throw everything that they have at us.  That would include unleashing all Iranian and Hezbollah operatives in North America to conduct widespread terror operations.  Blood would be spilled on a massive scale, and there would be great chaos inside our own nation. Are we sure that we really want that? Unfortunately, events are beginning to spin out of control very rapidly now.  On Monday, Iran announced that it will surpass the uranium stockpile limit that was established by Obama’s nuclear deal in just 10 days… “Today the countdown to pass the 300 kilograms reserve of enriched uranium has started and in 10 days time we will pass this limit,” said Iran’s atomic energy organisation spokesman Behrouz Kamalvandi. “This is based on the Articles 26 and 36 of the (nuclear deal), and will be reversed once other parties live up to their commitments.” Kamalvandi acknowledged the country has already QUADRUPLED its production of low-enriched uranium. Needless to say, that is likely to accelerate U.S. military planning. As our friends at ANP have pointed out, back in 2016 a former director of the CIA and four other formerly high ranking U.S. officials co-authored an editorial in which they made the claim that Iran already has nuclear weaponsWe assess, from U.N. International Atomic Energy Agency reports and other sources, that Iran probably already has nuclear weapons. Over 13 years ago, prior to 2003, Iran was manufacturing nuclear-weapon components, like bridge-wire detonators and neutron initiators, performing non-fissile explosive experiments of an implosion nuclear device, and working on the design of a nuclear warhead for the Shahab-III missile. Thirteen years ago Iran was already a threshold nuclear-missile state. It is implausible that Iran suspended its program for over a decade for a nuclear deal with President Obama. Iran probably has nuclear warheads for the Shahab-III medium-range missile, which they tested for making EMP attacks. Two recent tests violate UN agreements, demonstrating that Iran is brazenly developing its nuclear-capable missiles. Iran already has the largest medium-range ballistic-missile force in the Middle East. The individuals that co-authored those paragraphs have some extremely impressive credentials… Ambassador R. James Woolsey, former director of central intelligence, is the chancellor of the Institute of World Politics and the chairman of the Leadership Council of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies; William R. Graham was President Reagan’s science adviser, and acting administrator of NASA, and is the chairman of the Congressional EMP Commission; Ambassador Henry Cooper was the director of the Strategic Defense Initiative and chief negotiator at the Defense and Space Talks with the USSR; Fritz Ermarth was chairman of the National Intelligence Council; Peter Vincent Pry is executive director of the EMP Task Force on National and Homeland Security and served in the Congressional Strategic Posture Commission, the House Armed Services Committee, and the CIA.

Facial Recognition Coming Despite Warnings

The Rise Of Facial Recognition Should Scare Us All
In the last ten years, our world has been completely transformed thanks to the exponential growth of digital technology. Technological advances with computer processors and the Internet have quickly advanced our world into one that resembles some of the most well-known sci-fi films and novels. 
Not a single day passes without a report on an emerging technology or new feature in an already existing product. The last ten years alone have seen rapid growth in information technology, encryption, the medical industry and 3D printing technology, just to name a few Unfortunately, as technology is a tool, there are equally frightening developments taking place in the first two decades of the 21st century. Specifically, the ability for governments and private actors to monitor and spy on the activity of the average person has nearly become accepted as the norm. 
In fact, it has become commonplace to hear Americans respond to warnings of Orwellian futures with the timeless trope, “If you’re not doing anything wrong, there’s nothing to hide!” This is what makes it all the more surprising to see a surplus of recent reports examining the dangers and implications of a world where facial recognition technology is commonplace.
Here’s a small sample of the current headlines related to facial recognition:
– Most Americans Trust Facial Recognition Technology – But Not At The Airport – Terrifying AI Matches DNA to Facial Recognition Databases – Why Is Facial Recognition Important? 3 Signs It’s Too Big to Ignore Any Longer – Facial recognition smart glasses could make public surveillance discreet and ubiquitous
Even the Washington Post published a warning titled “Don’t smile for surveillance: Why airport face scans are a privacy trap.” Questions surrounding the emerging technology have reached enough of a tipping point that just this week, House Democrats questioned the Department of Homeland Security over the use of facial recognition tech on U.S. citizens. The Hill reported that more than 20 House Democrats sent a letter on Friday to the DHS over the Customs and Border Protection’s (CBP) use of facial recognition technology at U.S. airports.  The Border Patrol claims that they are rolling out the facial recognition program at a number of airports under a congressional mandate and with an executive order from President Donald Trump. Lawmakers say the program was supposed to focus on foreign passengers, not Americans.
The group of lawmakers wrote:
We write to express concerns about reports that the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is using facial recognition technology to scan American citizens under the Biometric Exit Program.
The letter to DHS comes shortly after a representative with the Government Accountability Office (GAO) the House Oversight and Reform Committee said that the FBI has access to hundreds of millions of photos that are used for facial recognition searches.  Gretta Goodwin, a representative with the GAO, said the FBI uses expansive databases of photos–including from driver’s licenses, passports and mugshots–to search for potential criminals. Goodwin noted that the FBI has a database of 36 million mugshots and access to more than 600 million photos, including access to 21 state driver’s license databases. Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio reminded Ms. Goodwin that the FBI has access to more photos than there are people in the country. “There are only 330 million people in the country,” Jordan stated. The TSA was also questioned about their use of facial recognition at airports. Austin Gould, the TSA’s assistant administrator on Requirements and Capabilities Analysis, said the facial recognition program has been helpful for travelers. However, critics say the potential benefits of saved time and reducing passenger volume should not override the greater risk to privacy. 
The TSA plans to have facial recognition tech at the top 20 airports for international travelers by 2021 and at all airports by 2023. The TSA has also previously expressed their desire to scan the face of every single American who enters the airport. The push back against facial recognition–and biometric technology in general–has moved beyond words in some areas. Most recently, San Francisco became the first city to ban government use of facial recognition. Due to the success in San Francisco, California lawmakers are considering AB 1215, a bill that would extend the ban across the entire state.  The editorial board of the Guardian also recently spoke out about the privacy threats, calling the technology “especially inaccurate and prone to bias.” The editorial board also noted that a recent test of Amazon’s facial recognition software by the American Civil Liberties Union found that it falsely identified 28 members of Congress as known criminals. Although the technology is currently dangerous due to its inaccuracy, the Guardian warns:
It may be too late to stop the collection of this data. But the law must ensure that it is not stored and refined in ways that will harm the innocent and, as Liberty warns, slowly poison our public life. It’s clear that the debate on the benefits and threats of facial recognition technology is not going anywhere anytime soon. It’s up to us as individuals to educate ourselves and inform our peers about the threats to privacy and freedom that are becoming increasingly more apparent everyday.

Scientists Warn About Effects From Geoengineering

Scientists Warn “Geoengineering” Could Start WW3
by Mac Slavo Scientists are warning that plans to “hack the Earth’s weather” could result in a third world war. If some countries take to the destruction of the Earth in the name of “climate change,” war could break out.

Although most elitists are in favor of geoengineering, which involves manipulating the atmosphere by blocking sunlight or isolating excess carbon, weather hacking in one region could have negative impacts in another and lead to global conflict, according to scientists. However, the United States has been using geoengineering unbeknownst to the masses for quite some time.


Scientists are now more concerned about “solar” geoengineering than the damages already done.  Solar geoengineering refers to the attempts to block the sunlight with chemicals in order to try to cool down the globe. Solar geoengineering would involve spraying chemicals and/or heavy metals into the air that would block some of the sunlight. When speaking on the sun blocking topic, geoengineering researcher Juan Moreno-Cruz toldBusiness Insider“The threat of war never is out of the question.” Andrea Flossmann, a scientist at the World Meteorological Organization, explained in a WMO report: “The atmosphere has no walls. What you add may not have the desired effect in your vicinity, but by being transported along might have undesired effects elsewhere.” According to Fox News, Earth’s temperatures are set to soar to dangerous levels so a lot of scientists think the unknown consequences of geoengineering are worth the risk. Once upon a time, all over the world, we saw fluffy white clouds in a blue sky. Today we see white lines and streaks, and many of us, in many countries, live under a layer of white haze. Children no longer know what real clouds look like, as the three basic cloud types are no longer seen. -No Natural Weather: Introduction to Geoengineering 101The worst-case scenario is that Earth’s atmospheric chemistry is irreversibly altered and causes freak weather conditions like monsoons, hurricanes, and heat waves that could kill thousands and increase global tensions. Of course, we are already living through that now thanks to the unnatural geoengineering going on already.Dane Wigington runs the website Geoengineering Watch.org and has compiled a massive amount of data on the harm and damages geoengineering or “chemtrails” have done to the Earth. “Stand back and consider: You can’t breathe without inhaling these

particulates [used to reflect the sun’s rays]. They are completely saturating the air column. I assure you, this is building up in all of us. Lab tests prove this with hair, blood and urine . . . they are building up in all of us. Not only is it right here, right now, toxifying every breath we take, it is decimating the earth life support system, the protective layers of the atmosphere and the ozone layer. This is an all-out assault against life. This is being used as a weapon. These programs are not benevolent. In addition to being used as a weapon, climate engineering is being used to mask, and this is very important, it is being used to mask the full severity of climate collapse from the population by confusing and dividing people. . . . They are going to keep covering this up until the last possible moment.” –Dane WigingtonVisit Geoengineering Watch.org for more information on the ongoing efforts by governments to alter the weather.
