AVAAZ, “White Helmets”, HRW, PHR, Amnesty & More Humanitarians for War on Syria

A massive campaign in support of foreign intervention against Syria is underway. The goal is to prepare the public for a “No Fly Zone” enforced by US and other military powers. This is how the invasion of Iraq began. This is how the public was prepared for the US/NATO air attack on Libya.

Chinese scientists mull power station in space

The battle to dispel smog, cut greenhouse gases and solve the energy crisis is moving to space.

Chinese scientists are mulling the construction of a solar power station 36,000 kilometers above ground.

If realized, it will surpass the scale of the Apollo project and the International Space Station, and be the largest-ever space project.

The power station would be a super spacecraft on a geosynchronous orbit equipped with huge solar panels. The electricity generated would be converted to microwaves or lasers and transmitted to a collector on Earth.

AT&T wants $139 a month, or your privacy, for superfast Internet

On Monday, Cupertino became the first West Coast city to offer AT&T’s GigaPower, which promises Internet speeds so fast customers can download 25 songs in less than a second.

But that speed comes at a price: $139 a month, or $110 for those who allow AT&T to monitor their browsing habits.

With its Internet Preferences program, AT&T hopes to turn customer data into extra revenue. The company plans to compile the information about online activity — what users are Googling, which sites they favor, and what products they click on — to sell higher-priced personalized advertisements.

There are many serious, critical and world changing; nature attacked by the unnatural events LOOMING on the horizon. The most populous state in the US is soon to run out of water. This is an imbalance and every imbalance trends for further states of imbalance. Dry conditions trend toward runaway fires. It's not just California that is due to be hit in this manner. There are a number of surrounding states that are in line for the same. Consider the size of Phoenix, Tucson and Las Vegas, just to name a few. This is a condition that marches like an invading army and it will leave the same results in its path as would an army.

AD Networks Ripe for Abuse via Malvertising

Major websites have been identified as hosting malvertising, cutting a wide swathe across the Internet, including big news and entertainment sites, search engines and many more. The scale at which campaigns can ramp up is undeniable–if hackers so choose. Their profits from these campaigns too are not limited to click fraud, which until the last six to nine months has been the most damaging outcome of malvertising forays.

Almost all campaigns lead to exploit kits, and some kits such as Angler are rigged with ransomware that can force users to cough up a few hundred dollars via Bitcoin to regain control of their machines, or worse, unlock files encrypted by the malware. Invincea, for example, told Threatpost it has discovered that malvertising displaying on popular real estate resource Zillow.com was recently redirecting users to sites hosting Cryptowall ransomware.

Gold In Fed Vault Drops Under 6,000 Tons For The First Time, After 10th Consecutive Month Of Redemptions

Two months ago, when looking at the most recent physical gold withdrawal numbers reported by the Fed, we observed something peculiar: between the publicly reported surprise redemption by the Netherlands (122 tons) and the just as surprise redemption by the Bundesbank (85 tons), at least 207 tons of gold should have vacated the NY Fed’s gold vault.

Instead, the Fed reported that in all of 2014 “only” 177 tons of gold were shipped out of the massive gold vault located 90 feet below 33 Liberty Street.

Man shot three times by Cedar Rapids police gives his account

Kyle Orth says he expected a couple of tickets for speeding after he backed his borrowed BMW into a utility pole.

What he got instead was three bullet wounds.

In an interview Tuesday, Orth, 27, once a salesman of the month for Zimmerman Auto Center, said he's still in shock over his run-in early Sunday with Cedar Rapids police — an incident in which no charges have been brought, but remains under investigation.

“It was stupid,” Orth said. “I was driving fast, but you don't get shot for driving fast.”

Cellphone video reportedly shows Germanwings flight's final moments, but officials say it's a hoax

French officials are denying media reports that a passenger or crewmember on board the doomed Germanwings Flight 9525 recorded a cellphone video in the final seconds before the crash.

German newspaper Bild and French magazine Paris Match reported that investigators found the footage at the crash site. The German paper said the video is blurry and doesn't show any of the passengers' faces.

French officials, however, told NBC News that the video is a hoax: "The video claim by Paris Match is false. It is a fake. There is no such video."

War With Iran, by the Numbers

Sen. John McCain and others on the American Right are in favor of dropping those pesky negotiations with Iran and just bombing their nuclear enrichment sites. Doing so, however, would only set them back a year or so, and would certainly put Iran on a war footing with the USA. Those who think such bombing runs would be the end of the story, however, are fooling themselves. Bombing Iraq in 1991 and the no-fly zone had a lot to do with taking the USA down the path to a ground war in 2003. Bombing now will almost certainly lead to a similar ground war.

‘Police lives matter’ pastor accused of rape threats: ‘You have to be the dumbest f-cking liberal c—’

In a tweet on Monday, Van Fossen posted an email from someone named “Dave Wendt” who expressed opposition to her column with violent rape rhetoric.

“OMG, you have to be the dumbest f*cking liberal c*nt I’ve heard yet,” the email said. “Get off the drugs bitch, and go check yourself into rehab. LOL.”

“Or better yet, you’re pretty hot,” the letter continued. “So how about if I come over and rape you with a few of my friends. WHEW! At least I won’t have to worry about you calling the police.”

Through a little sleuthing, several Twitter users speculated that the author of the email may have been Pastor David Wendt of the First Evangelical Lutheran Church in La Crosse, Wisconsin. His Facebook page features the pro-law enforcement slogan “police lives matter,” support for gun rights, and frequent criticism of President Barack Obama. Church records obtained by Raw Story also showed that his wife’s name matched a name on the email address that targeted Van Fossen.

We need to consider the contents of the resolution.

But, the Office of the High Commissioner is international and so the reference is to an international investigation.

It also gives three clear mandates. First is to assess progress towards accountability and reconciliation and a second – stemming from the previous resolution – to monitor national processes. The third and the new inclusion is a mandate to investigate alleged violations of human rights and related crimes.

MH17 investigation going off in ‘wrong direction’ could embarrass ‘many powerful people’

There is so much political pressure over the MH17 crash in Ukraine that investigators would rather conclude that no one really knows what happened than make several powerful people look foolish, believes Robert Parry, editor of Consortium News.

More than eight months since Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 was shot down above war-torn eastern Ukraine, speculation in international media is only adding fuel to the blame game, while no actual evidence to back claims has been released.

The US intelligence community is failing to share its own discoveries into the crash, fearing it will lead the investigation in the "wrong" direction, Robert Parry told RT.

The 4 Forms of Political and Corporate Lies

“To see what is in front of one’s nose needs a constant struggle.” ~ George Orwell

As with most societal dynamics, there are various approaches and thought-processes we can employ to help us make sense of the unpredictable nonsense that constitutes today’s politics and corporate spin.

There are four forms of political lies.

Those involved in politics – the politicians, reporters and corporate lobbyists – are constantly lying. We all know it, we just don’t all appreciate the scope of it. Of course, there is outright lying which might be done in any number of ways, including complete conjuration and outright elimination of important information. However corporate heads, politicians and their faithful media normally prefer more nuanced presentations to their lies — so it pays to understand just how they go about it.

Four Forms of Political Lies

There are four basic types of political lies, which immediately correlate to the four basic forms of arithmetic.

BPA Cuts Fertility in Fish Three Generations Later

The offspring of fish exposed to Bisphenol A (BPA) have decreased fertility and increased embryo mortality three generations later. A new study suggests that exposed humans and their children could be affected in the same way.

BPA is a chemical that is used in a variety of consumer products, including water bottles, dental composites, and resins used to line metal food and beverage containers. Aquatic environments such as rivers and streams often become reservoirs for these endocrine-disrupting chemicals.

“BPA has been proven to mimic the function of natural hormones in animals and humans,” says Ramji Bhandari, an assistant research professor of biological sciences at the University of Missouri and a visiting scientist with the US Geological Survey.

The Odigo Warnings & the 4,000 Israelis Saved on 9-11

Last October, when I visited Denver, I met with some of the core members of the Colorado 9-11 truth group. Two of the group's leaders, Frances Shure and Earl H. Staelin, raised several questions about my claims that 4,000 Israelis were thought to have been in the areas of the World Trade Center and the Pentagon on 9-11 - and that of these 4,000 only 3 died in the attacks.

Shure and Staelin also had questions about the Israeli-owned Odigo warning messages that were sent out several hours before the attacks and which were reported to have been precise to the minute. Because I have noticed that these very same questions are cropping up in several places I am posting them here.

Liberia has no Ebola patients at this point, and Sierra Leone has recently seen a fairly steady decline in cases. But the disease remains entrenched in Guinea. Guinea’s president, Alpha Condé, said over the weekend that emergency measures would be “reinforced” for 45 days in five districts, including some on the Sierra Leone border. Its closing was part of those measures, Cmdr. Mamadou Alpha Barry, spokesman for the national gendarmerie, said.

The Rise of the Working Poor and the Non-Working Rich

Many believe that poor people deserve to be poor because they’re lazy. As Speaker John Boehner has said, the poor have a notion that “I really don’t have to work. I don’t really want to do this. I think I’d rather just sit around.”

McCain Suggests Israel "Go Rogue," Blow Up Iran Negotiations By Starting War

As Iran talks appear to be coming to a close with a successful agreement that would both lead to the lifting of international sanctions and restrictions that would prevent the country from obtaining nuclear weapons, most in the international community are relieved.

Yet Republicans have teamed up with their counterparts in the Israeli political system to do everything they can to obstruct a deal – with tactics such as drafting new sanctions legislation and warning the Iranian leadership that the nuclear agreement will not outlast President Obama.

But this past week Senator John McCain (R-AZ) ratcheted up this sabotage to a new level. During a floor speech he gave on March 24th, the senator suggested that Israel “go rogue” and that if they don't they may not survive the next 22 months of the Obama presidency:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to Senator McCain: sir, forgive me, but have you gone absolutely barking mad, to suggest this?

And let me take care of this up front: I am a Christian Pacifist, who believes that good faith, honorable negotiations trump war every time. I would never advocate violence as a way to resolve geopolitical differences.

That having been said, I am certain that you have known for quite some time that Israel is a nuclear power, with nuclear weapons.

Your enabling this country, by making this suggestion, may encourage them to drop a nuke on Tehran.

Since the Israeli government is indifferent to any other human suffering other than that of its Jewish citizens, you may be supporting a genocide of the Iranian people, including some of the oldest practicing Jewish communities in the world.

Now, let us try to think this through, logically, and I promise I will use....small words.

Should Iran be attacked by Israel, there is no way that the US military will not be dragged in, considering the amount of ties the US and Israel have, both politically and militarily. And then, Russia may well come into the fray, on Iran's side.

Because the US military doesn't have the troop strength; the money, or the manufacturing to insure a positive response to a conventional war against Russia, that means that the US will most probably go nuclear, and quickly.

So, in short, sir, what you are most irresponsibly suggesting is a perfect recipe for the beginning of Armageddon, and a pretty total annihilation of life on earth as we know it.

I would very strongly caution you to please be very, very careful about what you wish for; the unintended consequences could be both catastrophic...and irreversible.

Remember when Israel bombed Iraq's nuclear power station, claiming there was a hidden nuclear weapons laboratory in the basement?

Following the 2003 invasion, international experts examined the ruins of the power station, and found no evidence of a weapons facility.

So why are you listening to Israel's claims about Iran?!?

Amid Inquiry, Menendez Finds Well of Support Among Jewish Leaders

"There can be no denying the Jewish people their legitimate right to live in peace and security,” he said, vowing just days before the Passover holiday that he would stand with Israel “so long as I have a voice and a vote in the United States Senate."

It was the closest the senator came to acknowledging his recent troubles. For weeks, Mr. Menendez, a New Jersey Democrat, has battled to keep his standing in the Senate amid an unfolding investigation into his relationship with a political benefactor, the Florida eye surgeon Salomon Melgen, and whether Mr. Menendez improperly influenced policy on his behalf.
