The celebration in London of NATO's 70th year has ended with a renewed purpose: the "challenges" posed by China. NATO is a military alliance, but the attendees were careful to point out that they do not view China as an enemy. So what is the point?
The U.S. government has used the terrorist designation in Latin America before to justify an increased military presence. Overnight Colombian narco-traffickers became "narco-terrorists," as the Bush administration used the extant war on terror legislation to push through an expanded military role in supporting the local government which was waging war on its own population, a program called "Plan Colombia."
Based on the statistics, 70 percent of the weapons that enter Mexico come from the U.S., while 30 percent comes from Spain, Austria, and other countries, the official said during the morning press conference with President Andrés Manuel López Obrador.
Nearly 36.4 million Americans in the "greatest economy ever" are on food stamps. At least half of all Americans have low-wage jobs, barely enough to cover living expenses, nevertheless, service their credit cards with record-high interest rates.
The economy as a whole is undergoing profound structural changes with automation and artificial intelligence. Tens of millions of jobs will be lost by 2030. It's likely the collision of these forces means the welfare state is going nowhere and will only grow in size when the next recession strikes.
In the latest reversal to his campaign promise to bring American troops home, the Trump administration is considering "significantly expanding" the US military footprint in the middle east, by sending as many as 14,000 additional troops, along with military hardware and a dozen ships to the Middle East, the WSJ reported.
We tend to report on how Baltimore City's socio-economic crisis is sending the region into a collapse. Now there's a new report that appears to be literally from a third world country!
Baltimore Mayor Bernard C. "Jack" Young warned in an interview this week with WBAL News' Vanessa Herring that a white van has been running around the city targeting young girls for their organs, reported The Baltimore Sun.
"They use all forms of persuasion to prevent people from speaking out, to silence people. Threats, intimidation, blackmail, financial deprivation. And all types of harassment such as put under intensive surveillance, telephone tapping, all of this. They pull out the stops and they have unlimited funds because those funds are supplied by the tax payer" Andrea Davison, Former Intelligence Agent
The incident unfolded when Kosoian was at the Montmorency Metro station. As this innocent woman rode the escalator, a police officer — who just knew he had found himself a hardened criminal hellbent on burning down society for not holding a handrail — targeted her for extortion and kidnapping.
The officer pointed out that Kosoian was disobeying a pictograph with the instruction "Hold the handrail." Knowing that she had done nothing wrong, Kosoian flexed her rights and refused to comply with the officer's unlawful stop and refused to identify herself. This infuriated the officer who then escalated the situation, no pun intended.
The conman charged the migrants for the journey – which was basically a walk in the forest – the hefty sum of €10,000 ($11,100). His plan was ultimately to abandon his clients in the forest, waving them goodbye and sending them off in the general direction of Finland.
The Clintons regularly stayed at Jeffrey Epstein's weird New Mexico ranch where the deceased pedophile had grand plans to seed the human race with his DNA, according to his estate manager.
Bill, Hillary and even Chelsea visited the 10,000-acre estate "almost every year after they left the White House," according to the Daily Mail. The former first family didn't stay at the property's main compound, however – they spent their time in a custom cowboy-themed village Epstein built a mile south of his mountaintop villa.
Things continue to get worse for Prince Andrew, as five more women have come forward to accuse him of being present during the abuse that took place on Jeffrey Epstein's properties.
The prince has denied all of the allegations against him, especially in regard to his main accuser, Virginia Giuffre, who appeared in a photograph with him while she was under the age of 18. It was during this time in which she says that Epstein forced her to have sex Prince Andrew, in addition to other wealthy and powerful men.
Weiss notes how "most observers accept the antisemitism redlines echoed lately by Bernie Sanders: you are not to speak of an outsize Jewish role in politics. So few write about the Israel lobby, though they know it to be a significant force…" In other words, Sanders, liberal to the core and ostensibly supportive of Palestinian rights, draws a line that forbids any real discussion of Jewish power in the United States even though everyone who has not been asleep is more than aware of just how powerful American Jews, and by extension Israel, are.
The claims that there is a particular "problem" of anti-Semitism, or a "crisis", in the party are a complete and utter fabrication. For the past four and a half years, these claims have all been driven along by the same political forces: the dying right-wing of the Labour Party, the British establishment in general and the pro-Israel, anti-Palestinian lobby.
Under S447, any Polish-Jew or descendent of said Polish Jew can lay claim to property to property deemed heirless and sold after the war, thus all land that can be claimed to have been owned by Jews before 1939 will be transferred to the global Jewish diaspora. If this law is put into practice, approximately 30% of Warsaw homeowners will be forced to pay "rent" to random Jews claiming to be Holocaust survivors or their descendants in New York City and Tel Aviv.
The incident also comes on the day when the French Parliament adopted a resolution on combating anti-Semitism, which partially equates it to criticism of Israel.
12bytes: The Zionist criminal cabal have created the problem of antisemitism purposefully, for without antisemitism Israel wouldn't exist, nor could it continue to extort billions from the host nations the illegitimate, Jewish state leeches from. Antisemitism is manufactured for the purpose of instilling sympathy from which the money flows. Furthermore, it is quite often, but not always the case, that Jews "attack" themselves in order to add weight to their political lever of antisemitism. Lastly, it is all Jews that are affected by the actions of the Zionist cabal and if there is ever a 'second holocaust' in the U.S. as Ernst Zundel once predicted, it is they too who will likely pay the price.
Immediately after overseeing a far-right military coup in Bolivia on November 10, the Trump administration set its sights once again on Nicaragua, whose democratically elected Sandinista government defeated a violent right-wing coup attempt in 2018.
Washington dubbed Nicaragua a threat to US national security, and announced that it will be expanding its suffocating sanctions on the tiny Central American nation.
The Institute for the Study of War (ISW) released a report on November 21st titled "Russia's Dead-End Diplomacy in Syria." The report focuses on Russia's role in supporting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and calls for the U.S. to maintain a presence in Syria.
The ISW presents itself as a "non-partisan, non-profit, public policy research organization." In reality, the ISW is a neocon think tank funded by some of the country's largest defense contractors. The ISW has a significant influence in Washington, and its chairman even has direct access to President Trump.
Wikipedia's co-founder Jimmy Wales claims to hold high standards of objectivity and balance in the content of the online encyclopedia and the integrity of his volunteer army of editors. Indeed this is largely true for non-controversial content where economic, political, social factors hold no consequence.
Yet, when it comes to the composition and editing of CAM systems and natural healthcare, in our opinion Wikipeida is an arsenal of misinformation and lies; we believe it has become a malignant growth to serve the ideological and financial purposes of select individuals and groups Wales has shown favor towards.
"2.6 million people die annually in low-and middle-income countries from medical errors, and that most of those deaths are related to misdiagnosis and administration of pharmaceutical products…Medication errors alone cost an estimated $42 billion (US dollars) annually. Unsafe surgical care procedures cause complications in up to 25% of patients resulting in 1 million deaths during or immediately after surgery annually…Four out of every ten patients are harmed during primary and ambulatory health care. The most detrimental errors are related to diagnosis, prescription and the use of medicines." — The World Health Organization
The broader issue of environmental modification techniques (ENMOD) must be addressed and carefully analyzed. It should also be understood that the instruments of weather warfare are part of the US arsenal of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and their proposed use by the US military against "enemies" constitutes not only a crime against humanity but to put it mildly a threat to planet earth.
From now on she will go to school on a bicycle, because driving her by car costs fuel, and fuel puts emissions into the atmosphere. Of course it will be winter soon and then she will want to go by bus, but cycling through the freezing builds resilience.
Climate. Now who wudda thought. The very mega-corporations and mega-billionaires behind the globalization of the world economy over recent decades, whose pursuit of shareholder value and cost reduction who have wreaked so much damage to our environment both in the industrial world and in the under-developed economies of Africa, Asia, Latin America, are the leading backers of the "grassroots" decarbonization movement from Sweden to Germany to the USA and beyond.
Germanov fears that plastic pollution could threaten the existence of many different species in the ocean, because it can interfere with their mating and reproduction, possibly leading to a reduction in birth rates for species with population numbers that are already dangerously low. Many plastics contain an additive called Phthalates to make the material more flexible, but this additive causes massive disruptions to the endocrine system, which can cause reproductive problems.
A BBC radio presenter has caused consternation online after tweeting that he will no longer play the iconic Christmas song "Fairytale of New York," by The Pogues, because the lyrics make him feel uncomfortable.
A Children's Book of Demons is basically a grimoire (a manual of witchcraft to invoke demons and the spirit of the dead) for children. It contains 72 demons that can be conjured by children for their personal benefit (which is the definition of black magic). Each demon is accompanied by a sigil (a symbol representing a demon imbued with occult power) and a "cute" drawing (that is replete with occult symbolism).
Jews killed by allied bombs were simply packaged as 'Nazi holocaust victims'. Photographs of victims of the Nordhausen bombing have been used in countless holocaust propaganda films, museums, memorials and books as an attempt to show 'nazi' crimes.
The number of collection centers in the United States has more than doubled since 2005 and blood now makes up well over 2 percent of total U.S. exports by value. To put that in perspective, Americans' blood is now worth more than all exported corn or soy products that cover vast areas of the country's heartland.
The proliferation of smart meters creates significant privacy concerns. The data collected can tell anybody who holds it a great deal about what goes on inside a home. It can reveal when residents are at home, asleep or on vacation. It can also pinpoint "unusual" energy use, and could someday serve to help enforce "energy usage" regulations. The ACLU summarized the privacy issues surrounding smart meters in a report.
All the monopolists (in official parlance, oligopolies) are in turn owned by the same set of investors in what is called horizontal shareholding. The same some 15-20. investors have the controlling stake in all the leading companies of the entire pharma and healthcare industry.
Although the year is not quite over the federal government has already managed to blow more than $230 million on outrageous things such as a self-cleaning toilet, the statue of a popular folk-rock singer for a foreign embassy and dubious research on the effects of nicotine on fish.
Israel is engaged in what might be described as a war with the objective of driving any and all criticism of the Jewish state out of polite discourse, making it illegal wherever and whenever possible. The Knesset has passed legislation criminalizing anyone who supports BDS and has set up a semiclandestine group called Kella Shlomo to counteract its message. The country's education minister has called BDS supporters "enemy soldiers" and has compared them to Nazis.
The writer says the final report's reference to "high levels of various chlorinated organic derivatives detected in environmental samples" overstates the draft report's findings. "In most cases" these derivatives were present only in part per billion range, as low as 1-2 ppb, which is essentially trace qualitiea." In such microscopic quantities, detected inside apartment buildings, it would seem, although the writer only hints at the likelihood, that the chlorine trace elements could have come from household bleach stored in the kitchen or bathroom.
Proposed in a recent filing, the DHS requested a change to the current rules in order to "provide that all travelers, including US citizens, may be required to be photographed upon entry and/or departure" from the US, citing the need to identify criminals or "suspected terrorists." While not yet implemented, the rule change is in the "final stages of clearance," a DHS official told CNN Business.
The Times said that its journalists "spent months translating and deciphering their code words" but said nothing about how they got their hands on the data supposedly belonging to the Russian military in the first place. Responding to the accusations on Monday, the Russian Defense Ministry has highlighted flaws in the report – perhaps the most glaring of which is that Russian pilots neither receive commands, nor report on their mission mid-flight, Defense Ministry spokesman Major General Igor Konashenkov argued.
Realizing that all of their previous efforts to "win" the war on drugs had failed, the feds came up with what they considered was a brilliant idea, but one that actually has turned out to be one great big crooked and corrupt racket that forcibly takes money out of the pockets of law-abiding citizens and puts it in the coffers of state cops and the federal Drug Enforcement Administration, in direct contravention of the due process clause of the Fifth Amendment.
While Congress subjects the nation to its impeachment-flavored brand of bread-and-circus politics, our civil liberties continue to die a slow, painful death by a thousand cuts.
Case in point: while Americans have been fixated on the carefully orchestrated impeachment drama that continues to monopolize headlines, Congress passed and President Trump signed into law legislation extending three key provisions of the USA Patriot Act, which had been set to expire on December 15, 2019.
Under its social credit score system, China punishes people who criticize the government, as well as numerous other behaviors, including;
– Bad driving.
– Smoking on trains.
– Buying too many video games.
– Buying too much junk food.
– Buying too much alcohol.
– Calling a friend who has a low credit score .
– Having a friend online who has a low credit score.
– Posting "fake news" online.
– Visiting unauthorized websites.
– Walking your dog without a leash.
– Letting your dog bark too much.
Propaganda guides and tool kits, such as the "global language dictionary", offer ready-made arguments and counter-arguments to sell Israel to journalists and critics. Such talking points come with tips on what tone and rhetorical tactics to use, what words and formulas "work", and how to discuss "sensitive" issues, such as Israel's illegal colonisation and annexation of Palestinian land, Jewish settlements and the killing of civilians.
All of which are now set to get worse since US President Donald Trump has both rewarded and emboldened Israel by recognising its illegal and brutal colonisation (its "settlements"). By the same token he has offered yet another spectacular demonstration of the complete contempt of the United States for the rule of international law.
The International Coalition of the Freedom Flotilla has announced that it will sail again to the Gaza Strip in the summer of 2020 to try to break the siege and silence towards the continuation of collective punishment imposed on the more than two million Palestinian people in Gaza.
"As the preliminary investigation drags on, the crimes continue. The Israeli colonization of occupied lands – a war crime under the Rome Statute – comes with the systemic violation and abuse of the human rights of millions of Palestinians," the group added in the letter which also raised the ICC's expressed concerns over Gaza.
Furthermore, anybody who seems to question the official narrative of this issue that's constantly pushed by mainstream media is made out to be a fool, and ridicule shortly ensues. Climate scientists have been ridiculed for even sharing their research and opinions suggesting that a doom and gloom scenario is not real, and that the issue of climate change is quite complex, and that man's CO2 output is not playing the role that most have been made to believe it plays.
Under U.S. pressure the OPCW management modified or suppressed the findings of its own scientists to make it look as if the Syrian government had been responsible for the alleged chemical incident in April 2018 in Douma.
As has been observed before however, the agencies who appear to be responsible for staging and coordinating such "provocations" or "false flags" have discovered that they can now get away with almost anything – presented appropriately in the mainstream media. The public has been trained to respond to diversionary and emotive material much as Pavlov's dog, bypassing any intellectual curiosity that would see them ask even basic questions – such as "why would he do that?"
This new designation of psilocybin as a Breakthrough Therapy for MDD recognizes the hugely unmet medical need in the large population of those who suffer as well as the potential for improvements to the current treatments and therapies. This is being coordinated by a non-profit research organization, the Usona Institue.
