NASA fungus problem puts theory of 'Martian mushrooms' on toast

Festering fungus has become a problem way down in the bowels of NASA, and could lead to false identification of extraterrestrial material.

Research (PDF) presented at the 49th Lunar and Planetary Science Conference revealed that, in one clean room at least, NASA has a bit of an issue with earthly fungi.

Scientists at the NASA Astromaterials Acquisition and Curation office, which holds samples from the moon, meteorites, and pretty much anything that has come from space, took a closer look at one of their labs as part of a curation initiative.

What they found wasn’t too pretty. The agency's meteorite receiving lab, for example, may conform to ISO class 6 cleanliness standards, but swabs taken from the floor, a table, the inside of a laminar flow bench used to process meteorites and a nitrogen filter all produced fungal growths.

Cell tower radiation confirmed to cause cancer in animals

Researchers from the respected Ramazzini Institute have released the results of a sweeping lifetime study that involved exposing lab animals to environmental levels of radiation from cell towers. Their findings not only supported those of the U.S. National Toxicology Program that linked the radiation to a rare heart cancer in male rats known as Schwannoma of the heart, but they also discovered a higher incidence of malignant brain tumors in female rats. Rats of both genders displayed precancerous conditions like Schwann cell hyperplasia. In addition, the exposed rats had lower litter weights, raising particular concerns for children and pregnant women who live near these towers.

US Navy to arm Virginia submarines with nuclear warheads

The United States Navy is set to add nuclear warheads to its Virginia-class attack submarines as part of new plans in the administration of US President Donald Trump.

“While Virginia-class submarines can use conventional deterrence to keep adversaries in check, a sub-launched cruise missile with a nuclear warhead would be incorporated into Virginias and give national command authority additional escalation control,” Rear Admiral John Tammen, the director of Undersea Warfare Division, told US Congress on Monday.

The new add-on would amount to a mission expansion for the Virginia submarines, which can already fire Tomahawk missiles and torpedoes.

David Hogg was at Home During the Parkland Shooting

In a recently released excerpt of a CBS video documentary with the students behind the March For Our Lives movement, David Hogg candidly admits he wasn’t at Marjory Douglas Stoneman High School during the shooting.

He explains that he was at home, and adds that he grabbed his camera so he could get footage of the events to advance his aspiring future career in journalism.

On the day of the shooting, I got my camera and got on my bike and rode as fast as I could three miles from my house to the school to get as much video and to get as many interviews as I could because I knew that this could not be another mass shooting.

He doesn’t elaborate on why he was at home during the shooting, and admits he didn’t know most of the students who were killed.

I didn’t know most of these people at a very personal level, but I wanted to make their voices heard and that’s what I’m really trying to do.

Pulse Club Killer’s Father Seddique Mateen Was Paid Informant of Mueller, Comey FBI – Under Investigation by FBI

On June 12, 2016, Omar Mateen, a 29-year-old security guard, killed 49 people and wounded 58 others in a terrorist attack at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida,

During the massacre Omar Mateen reportedly pledged his allegiance to Abu Baghdadi and ISIS.

Omar’s father Seddique Mateen appeared to have an odd relationship with the U.S. Government and sympathies toward the Taliban.

Seddique Mateen, the Taliban supporting gay-hating father of terrorist Omar Mateen, was spotted in August 2016 behind Hillary Clinton at her event in Florida.

Now this…

Omar Mateen’s wife Noor Salman leaked in court documents that her father-in-law Seddique Mateen worked for the FBI as an informant for 11 years and was himself under investigation.

Stormy Daniels’ Lawyer May Have Opened Her Up to $20 Million Lawsuit and Implicated Them Both in a Crime

The aging porn star’s lawyer, Michael Avenatti’s thirst for fame may come with a hefty price tag for his equally desperate client.

According to a legal analysis by lawyer Robert Barnes on Law and Crime, Avenatti “chose to file the suit that disclosed confidential information publicly, rather than under seal, in his suit to set aside the non-disclosure confidentiality agreement. By doing so, Avenatti exposed his client to a $20M judgment.”

The report explained that courts across the nation have ruled that this simple act alone is often grounds for a summary judgement due to it being a breach of a material provision of a confidentiality agreement.

Additionally, Avenatti tweeted of a photo of a DVD which he claims contains additional evidence and was being used as a “warning shot.” If this DVD contains a sex tape as many have speculated, it would be revenge porn of the worst kind — and he has opened his client up to criminal prosecution.

Antibiotic demand has surged 65% since 2000: Now 24.5 billion prescriptions are written a DAY - driving us closer to resistance that will cause a global public health crisis

Antibiotic prescriptions have shot up by 65 percent overall and by 39 percent per person in 15 years, new research reveals.

In the period from 2000 to 2015, 24.5 billion prescriptions for the infection-fighting drugs were written a day.

This rise comes even as scientists and doctors around the world warned that overuse was driving a decline in the drugs' effectiveness that could spell disaster if humans were plagued by an antibiotic-resistant superbug.

Rates of increase varied from country to country, with higher rates in poorer countries.

SpaceX' Falcon 9 rocket carved a giant hole in Earth's atmosphere creating a shockwave four times larger than California

A recent SpaceX rocket flight punched an enormous hole in Earth's atmosphere, according to new research.

The Falcon 9 rocket, launched in August 2017, generated huge circular shock waves and slashed a 559-mile (900km) hole in the ionosphere that lasted for three hours.

The record-setting puncture was akin to a localised magnetic storm and may have caused disruptions to GPS systems on Earth, experts said.

Shock waves created by the event stretched 1,099,827 square miles (1,770,000 square kilometers) or four times the area of California, the report found.

US expulsion of Russian diplomats is ‘declaration of war’ – George Galloway to RT

Galloway contrasted the US’ actions with those of EU member states. Those EU countries who rushed to follow the lead of Britain and the US in response to the poisoning of former spy Sergei Skripal are simply acting as “vassal states,” doing what they are told.

Box Office: Hollywood Suffers Worst March Downturn in Recent Memory

The month's last hope at the U.S. box office is Steven Spielberg's 'Ready Player One,' which opens Thursday, the eve of Easter weekend.
With less than a week to go, Hollywood's major March releases have failed to bloom at the North American box office, triggering the worst year-over-year decline for the month in recent memory.

March revenue through Sunday was an estimated $722.5 million, a 28 percent decline from the same time period last year ($997.3 million), according to comScore.

The last hope for redemption is Steven Spielberg's pricey Ready Player One, which Warner Bros. and Amblin Entertainment open in theaters Thursday, the eve of Easter weekend.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A 28 % decline in revenue in Hollywood. Remaking movies that we watched back in the 80's. Writers block? Ya......, big time. I hear that they are remaking Moby Dick.

Retired intelligence operatives ask Trump to reverse Haspel CIA nomination

A group of former US intelligence officers has urged President Donald Trump to rescind his nomination of Gina Haspel as CIA director, citing concerns over her alleged role in human rights abuses and her destruction of evidence.

Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity includes former CIA, NSA, FBI and Army operatives. In a memorandum to the president, the group claims Haspel’s actions disqualify her from the role.

“In 2002 Haspel supervised the first CIA ‘black site’ for interrogation, where cruel and bizarre forms of torture were applied to suspected terrorists,” the memo reads. “And when the existence of 92 videotapes of those torture sessions was revealed, Haspel signed a cable ordering their destruction, against the advice of legal counsel at CIA and the White House.”

‘Against common sense and intl law’: Russia to retaliate over diplomats’ expulsion by UK allies

Moscow won’t leave the provocative acts against Russian diplomats unanswered, the Foreign Ministry said, adding that several countries blindly copied the UK’s “hypocritical” stance on the Skripal case in the absence of evidence.

The decision of a number of NATO and other European countries to expel Russian diplomats over the poisoning of the former double-agent Sergei Skripal amounts to a “provocative act” and only harms international relations and the investigation of the incident, the Ministry said in a statement.

British children being forced into modern slavery in UK as 5,000 potential victims found

British children are being forced into modern slavery in the UK as more potential victims are reported than ever before.

A total of 5,145 potential victims were referred into the system last year, an increase of 35 per cent on the year before, and the National Crime Agency (NCA) believes the number will continue to rise.

The largest group was British citizens (819, more than double the 326 referred in 2016), followed by Albanian and Vietnamese nationals.

The NCA said a rising number of British modern slaves are being reported because of police referring teenage victims exploited by criminal gangs.

The Fed's Dot Plot Would Bury The Indebted US Consumer

The new Federal Reserve chairman’s first FOMC meeting last week, and subsequent press conference, confirmed that Jerome Powell is not an egghead obsessed with macroeconomic models. This is refreshing given the highly academic nature of his predecessors Janet Yellen and Ben Bernanke, and suggests that he will alter his view on the economy based on the reported data rather than theoretical projections of the future.

This also suggests that the so called ‘dot plots’, which are nothing more than the forecasts of individual Fed governors, should become less important. But for now the financial markets will still pay attention to those dots, most particularly as they are showing three rate hikes next year on top of the three projected this year (though that three has nearly become four).

Just hours after the latest close military encounter between the US and China, when the US navy sailed a destroyer to within 12 nautical miles of the contested Spratly Islands in the South China Sea as a "freedom of navigation" operation - a move that China condemned as a "severe provocation" just as the two countries launched an all-out trade war - the Chinese military launched its spring combat readiness drills with an air force exercise in the West Pacific and a joint combat patrol mission in the South China Sea.

The air force drills include H-6K bombers and Su-30 and Su-35 fighters, according to the PLA , and have a simple, if clear, purpose: "Air Force exercises are rehearsals for future wars and are the most direct preparation for war," the Chinese Air Force said on its Weibo account on Sunday, according to Reuters.

Russian media outlet Nezavisimaya Gazetta reported on Sunday that clashes between the Kurds and the Turkish army will likely extend to Manbij, Raqqa and the Eastern banks of the Euphrates, adding that the Kurds have retreat from the battlefield in Afrin after several days of heavy clashes and probably after the recent agreement between Ankara and Washington.

Over the past few weeks, several events have elevated the U.S. geopolitical tension with China which since the Obama administration has been in turmoil after failed diplomatic discussions. It all started in 2012 when China and the Philippines engaged in a lengthy maritime feud which resulted in rejections of the verdict by China, increasing the chances of potential conflict in the region...

The Afghanistan War is the longest in United States history, and despite initial claims that the goal of the invasion was to keep Americans safe by destroying the Taliban and al-Qaeda, the result has been a massive increase in opium production that has fueled an on-going opioid crisis in the United States and ensnared more than 2.5 million Americans in heroin addiction.

As whistleblower and former FBI contractor Sibel Edmonds noted, before the U.S. invaded Afghanistan in 2001, there were around 189,000 heroin users in the United States. By 2016, that figure increased to 4.5 million—an estimated 2.5 million heroin addicts and 2 million casual users.

The number of heroin overdose deaths in the U.S. also skyrocketed with a 533 percent increase from around 2,000 deaths in 2002 to more than 13,200 deaths in 2016. The is part of more than 64,000 deaths attributed to drug overdoses in 2016, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse.

Breaking: The Russian Military Warns: A Major U.S. Led War in Syria Is Imminent

There are warships deployed by US Navy in the Red Sea, the Mediterranean, and the Persian Gulf. They are ready to launch roughly 400 long-range Tomahawks against a target in the Middle East on any given day. Sea-launched cruise missiles were used to strike Syria in April. Anything that is at all related to the military operations on the island of Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean is hush-hush information, but it’s an open secret that the strategic bombers based there can launch at least a hundred cruise missiles and then use other high-precision munitions in a follow-up attack. On average, one bomber carries 20 AGM-86 ALCMs. Five bombers are believed to be normally stationed on this island that is off-limits to inquisitive outsiders. This means that at least 500 cruise missiles can be fired on short notice.

I agree with Stephen Lendman (below) that the Russian government’s efforts to deal with the West on the basis of evidence and law are futile.

It was a reasonable decision for Russia to attempt diplomatic engagement with the West on the basis of facts, evidence, and law, but it has been to no avail. For Russia to continue on this failed course is risky, not only to Russia but to the entire world.

Russia Vows Imminent Response: "The US Only Understands Force"

Update: RIA Novosti reports an unnamed foreign ministry official protested the decision by EU, NATO nations to expel envoys, and confirmed that Russia will respond to each country expelling diplomats, warning that the "expulsions won't go unanswered."

“Unfriendly” action won’t be left unanswered.

U.K.’s allies are “blindly following” principle of Euro-Atlantic unity at the expense of common sense.

Additionally, Russia's ambassador to Washington, Anatoly Antonov, said that, with regard to the US response, "US only understand force."

"I mentioned in my statement in the State Department that I consider these actions counterproductive," Antonov said.

"I said that the United States took a very bad step by cutting what very little still remains in terms of Russian-American relations."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ambassador Anatoly Antonov is correct in his assessment about the US having taken "...a very bad step by cutting what very little still remains in terms of Russian-American relations."

I do not remember the attribution, but it really applies right now in the Skribal case: "An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth, ultimately leaves everyone blind and toothless."

Less diplomatic communication leaves world leaders open for making a case for war when absolutely none exists; this is where we are headed right now.

We can hear the acceleration of war drums beating against both Russia and Iran. Both countries are being demonized for things they have not done, and are being sanctioned because of lies; we need a critically-thinking nation to even begin to avert these potential catastrophes, and need to advocate for a calm, logical, and moral approach to our diplomatic negotiations internationally.

Unfortuntately, however, I fear that we do not have enough time for such an approach to work, and prevent these wars.

And saying that, it is important that people reading this understand that it is because I care about my country, and her people, deeply, that I feel moved to criticize my country's leadership when I am certain that it is making to wrong moves, and praising it for when it makes what I feel are correct moves, both domestically and internationally.

The good moves so far in the Trump Administration: cutting back illegal immigration, and being open to negotiation with North Korea's Kim Jung Un.

The bad moves: doubling down on accusations against Russia in the Skribal case; expelling Russian diplomats; and making preparations for war against Iran, again premised on lies.

The men and women of the IAEA, who have consistently stated that Iran is complying with the P5+1 Agreement, are all very bright and distinguished scientists; when they say that Iran is in compliance with this deal, my tendency would be, based upon the premise that they are using science to make their evaluations, to believe them.

My "canaries in the coalmine" right now, in terms of what foreign websites in English, are allowed to be read by Americans, are: Sputnik International News; Russia Today; Press TV; and Fars News in English, the last two being Iranian websites. I encourage our readers to read them, while we still can, because even if you do not agree with the articles you may be reading, you can at least understand what foreign leadership is thinking, and doing.

Speaking on Fox News Sunday, Mnuchin said U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer reached “a very productive understanding” with South Korea on the tariffs to reduce imports and the existing trade deal known as Korus, and added that he expects "to sign that agreement soon." The resolution means that the US now has tariff exemptions with the EU, Australia, Brazil, Argentina, and South Korea.

As a result of the agreement, which he called "an absolute win-win", South Korea "will reduce the amount of steel that they send into the United States."

Baltimore’s rally protest Catholic Church coverup of sexual abuse cases

On a brisk, Palm Sunday morning about 20 activists, carrying signs and posters, gathered at the Villa Assumpta on North Charles St. at Bellona Avenue in Baltimore County, MD. The Villa Assumpta is a retirement home, a convent for nuns run by the School Sisters of Notre Dame. (SSND).

Back in the 1970s, Sister Eileen Weisman was the principal at the Catholic Community Middle School (CCMS), formerly Our Lady of Good Counsel School in Locust Point. It was a SSND school. One of the lay teachers under her supervision from 1972 to 1979, was the later convicted – sexual predator – John Merzbacher.

The protesters claim Merzbacher’s tenure was “a reign of terror” for many of his students – male and female alike. They insist Sister Weisman knew or should have known, about his serial sex abuses and other outrageous conduct, including repeatedly threatened students with a loaded handgun – and did nothing.

Rather than taking off as a traditional airplane does, the AeroMobil 5.0 is able to gain altitude through vertical thrust from powerful rotors embedded in retractable wings that deploy when you are ready to hit the skies. A rear propeller provides the vehicle with midair thrust. Billed as the “first and only electric VTOL (Vertical Takeoff and Landing vehicle) to also drive on the road,” the AeroMobil 5.0 could potentially someday be your taxi, offering convenient flights right at your doorstep.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Congrats, AeroMobil: I love companies in love with the future, and you are obviously one of those companies. Good on you!

Given the increasingly decaying road conditions on Oahu, courtesy of a government which insisted we needed a light rail system (on an island) which is currently hideously behind schedule, and in a cost-over-run status which could give an accountant a stroke, I WANT ONE!!!

Orlando nightclub shooter's father, an FBI informant, brushed off son's terror comments, agent says

The Orlando nightclub shooter's dad – revealed to be an FBI informant – told authorities who were investigating Omar Mateen before the attack that pro-terror comments the would-be gunman made to coworkers were just examples of him “being stupid," an agent testified Monday.

FBI Special Agent Juvenal Martin, who was on the stand in the terrorism trial of Noor Salman, Omar Mateen’s wife, said Omar's father, Seddique, had called him while his son was being investigated for the comments in 2006, a decade before the Pulse attack, and was upset.

Martin testified Seddique told him something like “if he had done those things he was being stupid,” the Orlando Sentinel reported.

Martin said the FBI interviewed Omar two other times as part of that investigation, but eventually determined he wasn't a security threat. The bureau even considered turning Omar into a confidential informant himself, according to Martin's testimony.

Fourteen members of the EU have decided to expel Russian diplomats over the Sergei Skripal case, European Council president Donald Tusk has confirmed. It comes despite zero evidence proving that Moscow was responsible.
Donald Tusk stated that further action could be taken.

Germany, France and Poland have expelled four diplomats each, respective foreign ministries confirmed on Monday. The Netherlands and Denmark will expel two diplomats each, their foreign ministries said.

Italy is expelling two Russian diplomats, while Lithuania has expelled three, according to that country’s foreign minister. The Czech Republic will expel the same number.

Meanwhile, Latvia is expelling one diplomat and an Aeroflot employee, and Estonia’s foreign minister has confirmed the country is expelling a military attaché at the Russian embassy. Finland is expelling one diplomat.

Ukraine has also jumped on board and announced it is expelling as many as 13 diplomats.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to politely remind the leaders of those 14 EU countries that such actions are frequently preludes to shooting wars.

And the other issue to question, greatly, is the reality that the UK has refused to send samples of the nerve agent allegedly used in this case to Russia; why not?!?!?

Something is going on here which absolutely stinks to high heaven, and it will not be resolved until all elements in this drama are examined with absolutely truth, logic, and the scientific method; of course, that is the polar opposite of what the UK's Prime Minister May wants to happen.

Villifying Russia for something it most probably did not do, is a big, tacky, hairy geopolitical "no-no", so one one has to wonder what final outcome is desired by #10 Downing Street and DC here; a war against Russia, for something it most probably didn't do, just like Suddam Hussein's didn't have the weapons of mass destruction he was accused by President Bush to have had?!?

And a short memo to both President Trump and Prime Mnister May; the people of both your countries have come to trust the independent media, when they want real news, and in the process, have becomeboth war-cynical and war weary; they collectively do not want another war based on lies; We the People (and our British cousins) have had our stomach-wrenching fill of that, thank you very much.

Hawaii Among Least Innovative States Thanks to Failing Schools

Innovation is a principal driver of U.S. economic growth. In 2018, the U.S. will spend an estimated $553 billion on research and development — more than any other country in the world and over 25% of the world’s total — helping the nation rank No. 4 on the Global Innovation Index. According to the results of the ranking, knowledge and technology outputs are America’s particular strengths.

But certain states deserve more credit than others for America’s dominance in the tech era. These states continue to grow innovation through investments in education, research and business creation, especially in highly specialized industries.

In order to recognize the nation’s biggest contributors, WalletHub compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia across 22 key indicators of innovation-friendliness. Their data set ranges from share of STEM professionals to R&D spending per capita to tech-company density.

Over the weekend, Facebook disabled the account of Safa, a Gaza-based Palestinian news site; it had almost 1.3 million followers.

Safa is widely seen as sympathetic to Hamas, but an employee at the news site said in a phone call that the media outlet is “independent” and “has no relationship with Hamas.”

Be the first to know - Join our Facebook page.

Facebook disabled Safa’s account, along with the accounts of 10 Safa editors, just after 5 p.m. on Saturday, without issuing a warning or providing an explanation, a manager of Safa’s social media team told The Jerusalem Post.

“We were totally surprised,” said the social media manager, who asked not to be named. “We are now working to restore the account because 60% of [the] website’s traffic comes through Facebook.”

China: Train Arrives Likely Carrying High-Level North Korean Official

Japanese outlet News 24 reported March 26 that a 21-car North Korean train of the type that often carries high-level North Korean officials has arrived in Beijing under heavy security, with armed police deployed around the railway. An unconfirmed report from China-based DW News indicated that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is visiting. In 2011, Kim Jong Il arrived in China in a similar train. With North and South Korean representatives set to meet in late April and U.S. President Donald Trump set to meet his North Korean counterpart afterward, China is attempting to mend its frosty relations with North Korea.

Pope Francis: Jesus Was the Victim of a ‘Spin’ Campaign by the Religious Establishment

In his Palm Sunday homily, Pope Francis said that Jesus was warmly welcomed by those who felt “left behind” by society, while inciting anger among the elites of his day.

All those who felt “left behind and overlooked” were moved to cry out in songs of “spontaneous joy” when Jesus entered Jerusalem, the pope said during his morning Mass in Saint Peter’s Square, while for the reigning religious establishment he was “a source of anger and irritation.”

For Christians, Palm Sunday commemorates the day that Christ triumphantly entered Jerusalem on a donkey, marking the beginning of Holy Week.

“The liturgy invites us to share in the joy and celebration of the people who cry out in praise of their Lord; a joy that will fade and leaves a bitter and sorrowful taste by the end of the account of the Passion,” Francis said in his homily.

Mar 26 11:24


Kim Jong Un has made an unexpected visit to Beijing in his first known trip outside North Korea since taking power seven years ago, according to unconfirmed media reports.

The special train may have carried Kim through the northeastern Chinese border city of Dandong, Japan’s Kyodo News reported earlier. Nippon TV showed footage of a train arriving Monday in Beijing that looked similar to one used by Kim’s father, Kim Jong Il, to visit the Chinese capital shortly before his death in 2011, Bloomberg adds.

The train's arrival was said to have "disrupted the whole railway schedule for northeast China, and people are observing that and drawing conclusions about who might be on that train," according to Yun Sun, a North Korea and China expert at the Stimson Center who spoke with Business Insider.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

With trade relations between the US and China cooling by the second, it would make sense for Kim Jung Un to determine how this is going to affect North Korea's trade relations with China.

16 EU states announce coordinated expulsion of Russian diplomats over Skripal case

Half of the European Union's member states have decided to expel Russian diplomats over the Sergei Skripal case, European Council president Donald Tusk confirmed. It comes despite zero evidence that Moscow was responsible.

Germany, France, and Poland topped the charts of EU countries making expulsions, announcing they would each be sending four Russians out of their respective countries.

Lithuania and the Czech Republic both announced they would be expelling three diplomats. Meanwhile the Netherlands, Denmark, Italy, and Spain jumped on board with two expelled diplomats per country.

Obama: I Would Like to Create ‘a Million Young Barack Obamas’

Former President Barack Obama told attendees at a conference in Japan on Sunday that he is looking to shape “a million” young leaders in his image to help the human race.
“If I could do that effectively, then—you know—I would create a hundred or a thousand or a million young Barack Obamas or Michelle Obamas,” Obama told the attendees. “Or, the next group of people who could take that baton in that relay race that is human progress.”

Obama reportedly made the remarks while discussing the Obama Foundation’s efforts to help young people around the world get connected to each other via the Internet.

The former president said that today’s problems are mostly “caused by old men,” and young people such as the organizers of the anti-gun March for Our Lives rally who survived the high school shooting in Parkland, Florida, can “create change” to solve those problems.

Obama singled out the student activists in a Saturday tweet, saying he was “so inspired” by the high school students.

Masked Men Forcibly Remove Far-Left University Occupiers

A group of masked men attacked far-left protestors occupying the Faculty of Law at the University of Montpellier on Thursday night, forcing several of the protestors to be taken to hospital. The occupiers blamed the university administration for the attack.

Around fifty students occupied the law faculty, claiming to be on strike until they were forcibly removed from late Thursday into the early hours of Friday morning, broadcaster France Info reports.

Video footage from the incident shows 10 to 15 masked men attack the occupiers with what appear to be batons and other blunt weapons and disperse them from a lecture hall.


The occupation is just the latest of a number of far-left occupations of universities. Far-left groups along with migrants have been occupying a university in the notorious, migrant-heavy Paris suburb of Seine-Saint-Denis since January 30th.

Cambridge Analytica accused of violating US election laws in new legal action

Amid mounting accusations that data firm Cambridge Analytica misused the Facebook data of up to 50 million user profiles, the U.K.-based firm and its top executives are now also under fire for alleged violations of U.S. election laws.

Government watchdog group Common Cause Monday filed a pair of legal complaints with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) and the Department of Justice accusing Cambridge Analytica LTD, its parent company SCL Group Limited, CEO Alexander Nix, SCL co-founder Nigel Oakes, data scientist Alexander Tayler, and former employee-turned-whistleblower Christopher Wylie of violating federal election laws that prohibit foreigners from participating directly or indirectly in the decision-making process of U.S. political campaigns.

The defendants are all non-U.S. citizens, according to the complaints.

The Trump campaign paid Cambridge Analytica nearly $6 million for services during the 2016 election cycle, according to data from the FEC.

Bringing Home the Bacon: Israeli Rabbi Says Cloned Pig Meat Could be Kosher

An Orthodox Israeli rabbi has claimed that genetically cloned pig meat could be consumed by Jews, including when eaten with dairy products.
Rabbi Yuval Cherlow said meat produced this way would not be subject to the same guidelines usually applied to regular pork. He suggested that cloned pork would have lost its “identity” and as a result Jews would also be able to eat it alongside dairy products.

Ynet published an interview in which Cherlow said that “cloned meat produced from a pig shall not be defined as prohibited for consumption – including with milk.”

The “cell of a pig is used and its genetic material is utilized in the production of food, the cell in fact loses its original identity and therefore cannot be defined as forbidden for consumption” was the stated rationale behind his claim. He added: “It wouldn’t even be meat, so you can consume it with dairy.”

The data analytics firm used personal information harvested from more than 50 million Facebook profiles without permission to build a system that could target US voters with personalised political advertisements based on their psychological profile, according to Christopher Wylie, a former Cambridge Analytica contractor who helped build the algorithm. Employees of Cambridge Analytica, including the suspended CEO Alexander Nix, were also filmed boasting of using manufactured sex scandals, fake news and dirty tricks to swing elections around the world.

Pressure grows on PM over Brexit Cambridge Analytica scandal

The Cambridge Analytica scandal engulfing the official Brexit campaign reached No 10 on Sunday, as campaigners wrote to Theresa May demanding an investigation into what members of her cabinet and her own staff knew.

The letter from the anti-Brexit group Best for Britain came after a whistleblower told the Observer that Vote Leave channelled money through another campaign to a firm linked to the controversial data company Cambridge Analytica in a potential breach of electoral law.

The allegations immediately put pressure on the foreign and environment secretaries, Boris Johnson and Michael Gove, who were leading members of Vote Leave.

Game Changer ? Ruth Ginsburg Gets Devastating News, Federal Law Requires …

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg confronts calls from many corners to recuse herself from the high court’s considerations of President Donald Trump’s brief travel ban order, given her expressed animus toward the CEO.

The Supreme Court set Monday, June 12, as the due date for challenges to the travel ban to present their reactions. The Trump organization has asked for sped up procedures for the situation, which means a decision to lift or keep set up a Fourth Circuit order blocking implementation of the request could happen moderately soon.

RBG fired at Gorsuch, trying to shut him down, but it didn’t work. He continued asking questions, one coming less than a minute after RBG tried unsuccessfully to shut him up.

They traded barbs again just a week later during oral argument in another case. Gorsuch, again, wanting to follow the Constitution. RBG, on the other hand, noting how the SCOTUS has otherwise interpreted it.

Iron Dome kicks into action after mistaking bullets for rockets

Multiple Code Red false alarms were blasted in the Hof Ashkelon and Sha'ar HaNegev Regional Councils and in the southern city of Sderot Sunday evening as the Iron Dome missile-defense mistook bullets from the Gaza Strip for a fusillade of rockets.

The regional councils originally reported that the Iron Dome anti-missile system was said to have intercepted every rocket rocket. However, the IDF later confirmed that no salvo had been fired at Israel.

“No salvo was fired at territory in the State of Israel. The situation in the Gaza region is usual. The interceptions by the Iron Dome system were activated because of the firing of bullets from the strip. Nothing fell in Israeli territory. It is being checked whether mortars or rockets were even fired at all,” the statement read.

Over the years of watching and occasionally blogging about the international scope of the GMO issue, I've also watched the development of GMO geopolitics, as I like to call it. We may conveniently define this in two ways: (1) those powers of nations which are home to large agribusiness cartels and trusts, like the USA or Germany with IG Farbensanto, will pursue agricultural policies on the world stage designed to curtail, and eventually eliminate, natural (or as they're sometimes called, heirloom) seeds, thus gaining control over the world's food supply, and enriching themselves in the process, since heirloom seeds cannot be patented and charged a royalty for use, while GMO seeds can.

‘No way’ nerve agent could escape UK lab? Russia demands info on Porton Down toxin research

Porton Down lab claims no toxins could have escaped it’s “four walls,” but has never denied the possession of the nerve agent used on the Skripals, the Russian Embassy said, urging the UK to disclose its chemical warfare program.

The origin of the mysterious nerve agent, used on March 4 to poison former Russian double-agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in Salisbury, has been the main point of contention in the unraveling international scandal. While Britain claims that the alleged A-234 nerve agent – also known as Novichok – was a Soviet development and thus could only have been used by Russia, Moscow contends that the chemical has since been studied by numerous parties and could have been re-engineered elsewhere, including in the UK itself.

Death knell tolls for the euro as more European nations repatriate gold – expert to RT

The latest trend among European countries of bringing home their gold reserves has been raising concerns in Brussels. RT talked to Claudio Grass of Precious Metal Advisory Switzerland to understand what’s behind that trend.
According to Grass, the process means disintegration, which usually comes with instability, unrest, more government intervention and control.

“The central banks started the repatriation already a few years ago, meaning before we had Brexit, Catalonia, Trump, AFD or the rising tensions between the Politburo in Brussels and the nations of Eastern Europe,” he said.

Study blames 'ACLU effect' for spike in Chicago's violence in 2016

Beginning in 2016, Chicago police officers had to more thoroughly document every street stop as part of a landmark agreement between the Police Department and the American Civil Liberties Union of Illinois to try to curb racial profiling and other unconstitutional practices. As a result, street stops plummeted, to about 100,000 for all of 2016, an 82 percent drop from about 600,000 in 2015, department records show.

Using what it called “empirical research tools,” the 98-page paper, which has not yet been published, calculated that the far fewer street stops led to nearly 240 additional killings in 2016 alone.

Opinion: Sarkozy Indicted For Corruption, As Clinton Cabal Crumbles

It seems as if some measure of bad karma has finally come to haunt the friends of Hillary Clinton, with news emerging this week that France’s former President Nicholas Sarkozy has been indicted for financial corruption in Libya stemming from the late Muammar Gaddafi’s alleged financing of Sarkozy’s 2007 campaign. With the protection of the neoliberal Queen, Hillary Clinton, removed from the political chess board after her failed Presidential bid, it remains to be seen as to how many more of her supporters and associates have become perilously vulnerable to exposure.

When then Secretary-of-State Hillary Clinton spat “We came, we saw, he died,” in the wake of Muammar Gaddafi’s murder, she was not the only psychopath reveling in a bloody victory: Behind her, in the shadows, corrupt leaders like Sarkozy were also cheering.

Rapper Who Performed At 'March For Our Lives' Was Arrested Last Year For Carrying A Concealed Weapon

On Saturday, rapper Vic Mensa sang for the gun control crowd at the March for Our Lives in Washington, D.C. One seeming irony: not only has Mensa owned guns, but he was arrested last year in Beverly Hills, California, and booked on a felony count of carrying a concealed weapon.

Mensa had been pulled over in February 2017 for running a stop sign and having tinted windows. He told police he had a gun in his car and showed them his concealed carry permit, but according to police, the permit was from another state. He was released on $35,000 bail after spending one night in jail.

In July 2017, according to TMZ, Mensa got two years probation after pleading no contest to carrying a concealed firearm in his car. The police dropped the second count of carrying an unregistered loaded firearm.
