TTIP will legalize cancer-causing chemicals banned by EU, trade union warns

Britain could be flooded with harmful chemicals currently banned in the European Union if the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) deal is signed next week, a trade union has warned.

The GMB said chemicals that can cause cancerous tumors, birth defects and development disorders will be allowed in the EU after the controversial trade agreement is signed.

The union’s top health and safety officer expressed concern that TTIP would allow a “downward harmonization of standards” for chemicals currently banned in the EU.

In separate comments, GMB called for the UK to ensure the National Health Service (NHS) is protected from private companies if the trade deal goes ahead.

Broadcast Evening News Fail To Cover Jeb Bush's Super PAC Problem

Broadcast evening news programs on ABC, NBC, and CBS completely ignored likely Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush's questionable delay in announcing his campaign while he sidesteps campaign laws and continues coordinating with his super PAC. Despite increasing scrutiny of a strategy that "tests the legal definition of [a] candidate," the nightly news programs have devoted zero coverage to the matter since The Associated Press (AP) first reported on it in April.

Obama admits that climate change will be in Obamatrade

In a speech on the Senate floor on May 22, Democratic senator Ron Wyden of Oregon ridiculed those who thought climate change regulation would be part of Obamatrade:

We’ve heard suggested, for example, that it’s a backdoor route to immigration reform or action on climate change…. My sense is that the rate these hypotheticals are going, you’re bound to hear that a future president working on a trade deal might have second thoughts about the Louisiana purchase.

But in an interview on NPR’s Marketplace yesterday (June 3), President Obama said that enforcing climate change regulations will indeed be part of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the Obamatrade pact that he is currently negotiating with Malaysia and 10 other countries. He said:

Three suicides linked to blanket suspension of Social Security benefits for 900 in Kentucky

Kentucky attorney Ned Pillersdorf this week linked three suicides to the Social Security Administration’s decision to suspend benefits for 900 people without giving them a hearing.

Last week, the Social Security Administration confirmed that it had suspended benefits for 900 people after congressional investigators accused Kentucky attorney Eric C. Conn and David B. Daugherty, a former SSA judge, of fraud in 1,500 cases.

Does Rand Paul Have Dirt on Mitch McConnell?

Most puzzling to some were the veteran lawmaker's actions that allowed a first- term senator — his GOP colleague from Kentucky, Rand Paul — to use the Senate's elaborate rules to delay things long enough to cause the entire USA Patriot Act to lapse for a couple of days, starting at midnight Sunday...
When something in politics doesn't seem to make sense, it means it only makes sense in terms of deep politics. I don't know what went down or why, but Mitch didn't end up as majority leader by making sloppy plays like this.

U.S. Senate approves ‘Freedom Act’ to renew government spying powers

The Senate on Tuesday passed a measure that reaffirms previous legislation the Bush and Obama Administrations used to justify tasking the National Security Agency with conducting massive, and early on warrantless, electronic surveillance on Americans. Controversial provisions of the law that both administrations used to “authorize” such tasks – the USA Patriot Act – expired June 1, at which time the NSA’s surveillance programs were supposed to be shut down.

3,700 ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT ‘THREAT LEVEL 1’ CRIMINALS RELEASED INTO U.S. BY DHS

CHINA’S INTERNET POLICE LAUNCH ‘SPEECH INSPECTIONS’, CHILL CRITICAL VOICES

According to a statement from the Ministry of Public Security, the Internet Police will be patrolling major social media platforms including Weibo and WeChat round the clock to prevent illegal information from spreading under a shared username and account “Internet Police Inspection and Law Enforcement” (??????). The Internet police teams are meant to detect “illegal and harmful information,” prevent improper words and deeds, publish case reports, and guard against cyber criminals. They will “educate and warn” those who misbehave and crack down on those who violate the law.

2016: Rubio, Graham Refuse to Answer Whether They Read Obamatrade Before Voting on It

Only two GOP presidential candidates currently in the U.S. Senate publicly admit to have read the Obamatrade agreement prior to voting on it: Sens. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY)

Cruz voted for Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) that would fast-track the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) Pacific Rim trade deal.

Sens. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) —the other two Senate Republicans who have announced they’re running for president—refuse to answer, through spokespersons, whether they’ve gone to the secret room to read the TPP deal and whether they did before voting on TPA. Both Rubio and Graham voted for TPA, which would fast-track TPP—and at this point they’re both choosing through staff to give the public impression they didn’t read the secret text before they voted.

Why Hillary Can't Run on Her State Department Record

Hillary Clinton's record as secretary of state became a hot-button issue this week after Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told Bloomberg Television that the Barack Obama administration's failed "reset" policy with Moscow was her "invention."

Here's why it matters: Her campaign chairman, John Podesta, gave an interview to Bloomberg View's Al Hunt in April in which he said holding up the “major accomplishments” from her State Department tenure would be a centerpiece of her campaign. Podesta may want to reconsider that plan. Running on Clinton's signature diplomatic initiatives is fraught with risks because, on closer inspection, most that he mentioned don’t hold up to scrutiny.

Israel tells France to fire 'anti-Semite' Orange CEO

An Israeli minister has asked the French government to dismiss the "anti-Semite" chief executive of the French telecommunications company Orange over its plans for severing business ties with Israeli mobile firm Partner.

Amid the outrage in Israel over the company’s plan, the regime’s Culture Minister Miri Regev on Thursday issued an appeal for the dismissal of Stephane Richard, the chief executive and chairman of Orange.

“The French government must show zero tolerance for anti-Semitism,” the Israeli minister said.

The latest comments are in line with Israel's policy of labeling its critics as "anti-Semite."

Meanwhile, the top official in Partner said Thursday that he is furious at remarks by Richard regarding the French company’s “intention” to withdraw its brand from the occupied territories.

Probe Reveals Red Cross Raised $500M for Haiti but Built Only 6 Homes

US ignores OSCE data, blames ‘majority’ of Ukraine truce violations on rebels

US State Department spokesperson Marie Harf refused to directly acknowledge Kiev’s role in violating the Minsk peace agreements in eastern Ukraine, turning a blind eye on daily OSCE reports that equally implicate the government and the rebel forces.

EDITORS OF WORLD’S MOST PRESTIGIOUS MEDICAL JOURNALS: “MUCH OF THE SCIENTIFIC LITERATURE, PERHAPS HALF, MAY SIMPLY BE UNTRUE”

Much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue. Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness. As one participant put it, “poor methods get results”. The Academy of Medical Sciences, Medical Research Council, and Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council have now put their reputational weight behind an investigation into these questionable research practices.

EPA hid truth about glyphosate and cancer for decades to protect Monsanto's corporate profits

Did the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency run cover for biotech behemoth Monsanto for years to hide the cancer-causing properties of one of the agri-giant's most profitable chemicals? Absolutely, asserts Dr. Anthony Samsel, a research scientist and consultant who says he has EPA documents in his possession which allegedly show that Monsanto was aware of research tying glyphosate, the primary chemical in the company's popular Roundup herbicide, to cancer since the 1970s.

WHERE DID THE HALF BILLION RAISED FOR HAITI GO? RED CROSS WON'T SAY, ONLY BUILT SIX HOUSES

How the Red Cross Raised Half a Billion Dollars for Haiti ­and Built Six Homes Even as the group has publicly celebrated its work, insider accounts detail a string of failures. In late 2011, the Red Cross launched a multimillion-dollar project to transform the desperately poor area, which was hit hard by the earthquake that struck Haiti the year before. The main focus of the project — called LAMIKA, an acronym in Creole for “A Better Life in My Neighborhood” — was building hundreds of permanent homes.

Today, not one home has been built in Campeche. Many residents live in shacks made of rusty sheet metal, without access to drinkable water, electricity or basic sanitation. When it rains, their homes flood and residents bail out mud and water.

Whistleblower Tells Oversight Committee of Crimes Committed By Hillary and Huma Abedin

This could be the end of Hillary 2016. Two whistleblowers met behind closed doors with the Oversight Committee staffers and the lead general counsel for the committee. The revelations are nothing short of explosive. One of the whistleblowers (WB) is already well known, Richard Higbie, but the second one, who is still unnamed has evidence of possible crimes by Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton and a cover up of those crimes by former Acting Inspector General of the State Department, Harold Geisel, who had previously been accused of playing politics in his position as watchdog for the State Department.

Congratulation Tony Blair

The Guardian reports this morning that Tony Blair is to take on a new role leading the European Council on Tolerance and Reconciliation.

This is no doubt great news. The 21st century’s greatest war criminal is called to lead the campaign against ‘extremism’ which he himself instigated. Truth be told, it only makes sense to appoint a mass murderer to such a delicate job because only a genocidal character could be intimately familiar with the nitty gritty of institutional hatred and intolerance.

Fallacies in Modern Medicine: Statins and the Cholesterol-Heart Hypothesis

It is becoming increasingly clear that the cholesterol-heart hypothesis is a fallacy of modern medicine. In the future medical historians may liken the prescribing of statins to lower blood cholesterol with the old medical practice of bloodletting. Taking that vital substance out of the body is comparable to today’s practice of blocking production of cholesterol, an equally vital component, with drugs.

What happened to Red Cross donations for Haiti?

Following a harrowing earthquake that struck Haiti in 2010, the American Red Cross launched a project to raise funds and rebuild the area. Roughly $500 million was donated. The Red Cross claims to have provided homes for more than 130,000 people in Haiti, but according to a new report from ProPublica and NPR, as it stands today, only six homes have been built in the four years since those efforts began.

The organization won’t say where the rest of the money has gone. When they declined to show ProPublica’s Justin Elliot and NPR’s Laura Sullivan the grounds of one of their projects in Campache, the reporters visited the area on their own:

Still today, 48 years on, there are relatively few people who know the whole truth about how Israel set the stage for war in June 1967 to grab more Arab land. The single most decisive event that made war inevitable happened on Thursday 1 June, four days before Israel launched its attacks. What was it?

The Podemos Phenomenon: Spain’s Best Hope for Democracy

The ideology of Podemos was incubated during the May 2011 protests in Madrid centered on the skyrocketing unemployment and austerity measures employed by the Zapatero-led government. Spain’s protests erupted nationwide and were centered in the Puerta del Sol square in Madrid, led by social networks and citizen assemblies. Protesters were dubbed Indignados (“the outraged”, or “the angry ones”), for their rejection of Spain’s increasingly corrupt two-party system and the “austericide” measures strangling the economy and vitality of the nation. Spreading throughout the country, it is estimated that about 6.5-8 million participated. Protests have continued under the Rajoy regime.

US Claims Assad Supporting ISIS as US Supports ISIS

By Brandon Turbeville

Reminiscent of a 1970’s television show, whenever one tunes in to the mainstream corporate news to observe the latest propaganda from the US government and the State Department in particular, the viewer can scarcely contain himself from asking “What will they think of next?”

Indeed, mainstream news and the US State Department must be attempting to top themselves in a contest that could only be titled “Wackiest theory of the week.”

Enter this week’s contestant: the “Assad is supporting ISIS” claim...

FREEDOM Act Passes, Effectively Kills Freedom

By Brandon Turbeville

With the passage of the USA FREEDOM Act, mainstream media outlets and even some “privacy advocates” are hailing the passage of the bill as a welcome step forward and a sign of defeat for the USA PATRIOT Act, the bill that was itself passed in the wake of the 9/11 attacks and widely representative of the United States’ rapid descent into outright police state tyranny.

Unfortunately, however, the passage of the FREEDOM Act is no victory for freedom. In fact, is an insultingly sound nail in freedom’s coffin...

Elements of the Coulibaly affair recall the role of the French services in 1999

One thing led to another, and I arrived at three major conclusions :

- The Front National was as creation of the Gaullists, aimed at stabilising the different groups who were excluded from national political life (as the losers of the Second World War, and losers of decolonisation) and re-inserting them into the political arena.

- From its creation, the FN was piloted by the secret services under the vigilant eye of the Elysée.

Ron Paul: Before Applauding Freedom Act, Address “CIA Secret Government Far Above the Law”

SHTFplan.com

The passage of the USA FREEDOM Act and the expiration of parts of the PATRIOT Act are being hailed as monumental steps in ending unwarranted surveillance, but – signed into law by President Obama – it is largely a weak half measure aimed at giving the appearance of restored trust in government:

Former presidential candidate Ron Paul notes: before Americans applaud a minor step toward transparency, they should recognize the corrosive nature of the CIA, a secret government operating far above the law.

“They are a secret government,” Paul says of the CIA. “Way out of control.”
