‘Though news on the Ebola virus has been muted since two American health care workers were admitted to U.S.-based facilities last month, the deadly contagion continues to spread. According to the World Health Organization more than 40% of all Ebola cases thus far have occurred in just the last three months, suggesting that the virus is continuing to build steam.
Physicist Alessandro Vespignani of Northeastern University in Boston is one of several researchers trying to figure out how far Ebola may spread and how many people around the world could be affected. Based on his findings, there will be 10,000 cases by September of this year and it only gets worse from there.’
‘The Department of Energy’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory is completing a unique experiment called the Holometer which has recently started collecting data to answer some mind-bending questions about our universe–including whether we live in a hologram.
Much like characters on a television show would not know that their seemingly 3-D world exists only on a 2-D screen, we could be clueless that our 3-D space is just an illusion. The information about everything in our universe could actually be encoded in tiny packets in two dimensions.
Take a look around you. The walls, the chair you’re sitting in, your own body – they all seem real and solid. Yet there is a possibility that everything we see in the universe – including you and me – may be nothing more than a hologram.’
‘A United Nations’ peacekeeping commander ordered Filipino troops to surrender on Monday at the hands of Obama-backed Syrian rebels. Thankfully they disobeyed that order and fought bravely for their freedom.
This is just the latest example of a corrupt United Nations that is leading us all toward a New World Order.
Why would anyone order a surrender to these savages when the likely reward is death?’
‘In 2013, The Guardian revealed that Britain’s Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) had illegally withheld 1.2 million (later revised to 600,000) historic documents from the public, in flagrant breach of the UK Public Records Act. The documents – which include the desk diary of Soviet spy Donald Maclean; case files from Nazi persecution compensation claims; and masses of material removed from Hong Kong – were being held at Hanslope Park, a secretive, high-security compound in Buckinghamshire that the FCO shares with intelligence agencies MI5 and MI6.’
‘Heads need to start rolling at the Australian Bureau of Meteorology. The senior management have tried to cover-up serious tampering that has occurred with the temperatures at an experimental farm near Rutherglen in Victoria. Retired scientist Dr Bill Johnston used to run experiments there. He, and many others, can vouch for the fact that the weather station at Rutherglen, providing data to the Bureau of Meteorology since November 1912, has never been moved.
Senior management at the Bureau are claiming the weather station could have been moved in 1966 and/or 1974 and that this could be a justification for artificially dropping the temperatures by 1.8 degree Celsius back in 1913.
Surely its time for heads to roll!’
‘A day after France revealed its new government, the person who so eagerly stepped in after DSK’s infamous and choreographed fall from grace and the IMF presidency (not to mention his derailed French presidential ambitions, greenlighting Hollande as what would become the worst French president ever), Christine Lagarde is about to be DSKed herself after “someone” clearly has set their sights on the former French finance minister.
Several hours ago the news hit that a French court has put Christine Lagarde, head of the International Monetary Fund, under a formal probe for negligence in a corruption investigation dating back to her days as finance minister. To be sure, this development is hardly a shock: recall that it was over a year ago when “IMF’s Lagarde Flat Raided Over French ‘Payout’ Probe” with her ascent to the head of the IMF also riddled with numerous allegations of impropriety involving the Tapie matter. However, until now, such outside interventions were below the radar, and certainly never escalated to anything formal or official. Alas, it now appears that Madame’s time has come, even if Lagarde hasn’t grasped it just yet.’
‘Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu does not plan to send a delegation for negotiations in Cairo as stipulated by the ceasefire agreement that ended seven weeks of fighting in Gaza, Israeli media reported Monday.
Channel 10 said in a TV report that Netanyahu told his cabinet in a closed session that he would not send as agreed a delegation to Egypt for further talks regarding a seaport and airport in Gaza, the release of Palestinian prisoners, the demilitarization of Gaza factions, and the delivery of bodies of Israeli soldiers presumed held by Hamas, among other unresolved issues.
Netanyahu spoke proudly to his cabinet about the Gaza offensive, saying Hamas had not achieved any of its demands, according to the report.’
‘Iraq: Chaos! Libya: Chaos! Syria: Chaos! Whatever NATO touches, turns putrid, rots and dies. Three interventions by the Anglo-Saxon Alliance (UK and US), two by the FUKUS Axis (add France), three interventions by NATO, three destabilized States crawling with terrorists.
The responsibility lies at the feet of Washington and its poodle States and the onus is on them to right the wrongs they willfully committed. You messed up, now… Pay for it!’
‘U.S. military forces conducted an operation Monday against the Al-Shabaab network in Somalia, Pentagon press secretary Rear Adm. John Kirby said.
“We are assessing the results of the operation and will provide additional information as and when appropriate,” he said.
No other information was immediately available. The Pentagon did not say who was targeted, where in Somalia the operation took place nor why the operation was happening now.
But the governor of Somalia’s Lower Shabelle region said a suspected drone strike hit a small rebel-held village between the towns of Dhaab Tubaako and Haaway.’
‘Last week, Russia announced an game changing shift for energy in which they are now allowing the sale of oil and natural gas to be done in both Roubles and Yuan, bypassing the dollar and cracking the 40 year old petro-dollar system. And on Aug. 31, Dr. Jim Willie reported during an interview with TFMetals Report that this break away from U.S. hegemony over the purchasing of oil is not being limited to just Russia, but that the foundational country of petro-dollar origin, Saudi Arabia, is in talks with the Eurasian energy giant to join them in a partnership that will also disconnect the Arab Kingdom from the dollar, and open energy sales within the OPEC nations to be done in Roubles, Yuan, and perhaps even the Euro.’
‘American investigative journalist Wayne Madsen says Republican Senator John McCain’s “actions do not comport with those of a sane person,” probably he is suffering from posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and needs psychiatric care.
On Sunday, McCain (R-Ariz.) said President Barack Obama is “overwhelmed” by the ISIL terrorist group in Iraq and Syria as well as Russian President Vladimir Putin’s designs on Ukraine.
McCain said that he was “astounded” by the president’s recent comments that news programs and social media were to blame for creating the feeling that “the world is falling apart.”’
‘The term revolution has multiple meanings dependent upon the perspective of the rebels seeking it, and the establishment trying to keep it from occurring. But throughout the annals of history, revolution has never come easily, and almost inevitably is achieved through violent action, or in many cases, all-out war.
For Russia, which understands the concept and history of revolution within their own peoples, the direction they see the world moving towards, especially in the economic plane, is a form of revolution against the old way. And as President Putin’s adviser Sergei Glazyev ascertained on Thursday of last week, the revolution to change the global financial system will come by war, as it has in almost every single instance in history.’
‘The new Nigerian National Identity Cards, with branded logo of the American firm, MasterCard, angered Nigerians amid fears of security and economic breach.
Many people called for an immediate halt to the project. President Goodluck Jonathan launched the national electronic identity card, which all Nigerians will have to have by 2019 if they want to vote. Nigerians hit out at the government, saying it would surrender a symbol of national sovereignty and pride to the American firm, MasterCard.’
‘Billionaire Ken Langone, the founder of Home Depot issued a warning to Pope Francis during an interview with CNBC which was published this past Monday. In the interview he said that wealthy people such as himself are feeling ostracized by the Pope’s messages in support of the poor, and might stop giving to charity if the Pope continues to make statements criticizing capitalism and income inequality.’
‘Allowing Detroit to declare bankruptcy was one thing, getting it out of it was always going to be another. How do you magically slash $18bn (£10.1bn) in debt and simultaneously put a city as proud – and as dilapidated – as Motown back on its financial feet again?
With great grit and speed, it seems. And a touch of ruthlessness. A process that could have taken years will instead come to a climax starting on Tuesday morning in the courtroom of Judge Steven Rhodes.
It will be his job to review a sweeping debt restructuring plan that has been hammered out in marathon negotiations in the months since the original bankruptcy filing in June 2013. He can approve it if he deems it fair and workable or reject it if he doesn’t. The fate of Detroit, literally, is in his hands.’
‘A father was harassed and later lectured by a Homeland Security agent for taking pictures of his own daughters in another example of how the “see something, say something” mentality is running rampant in America.
In a Washington Post piece entitled I was taking pictures of my daughters. A stranger thought I was exploiting them, web designer Jeff Gates explains how he has taken photographs of his two adopted Chinese daughters hugging every year for the past 14 years on a ferry boat before the family leaves for its annual summer vacation to the Jersey Shore.
However, on this occasion, Gates’ experience was ruined by a federal busybody who thought that sticking his nose into a family’s private business was part of his job as a Homeland Security employee.’
‘When US government “leaders” told known lies to unlawfully invade Iraq seven years ago, they committed the crime of treason by levying war against our own soldiers and Constitution. Corporate media are complicit in treason as they also lied by commission and omission to dupe American soldiers and public into “emperor has no clothes” obvious unlawful Wars of Aggression.
Those Americans in key positions committed to keeping our constitutional republic rather than a fascist empire are running out of time to enact their Oath to protect and defend the US Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, to refuse all orders associated with these unlawful wars and arrest those who issue them.’
‘Can technology help humanity realise its full potential? Transhumanists see the merging of man and machine as a natural “next step” in human evolution, but where does consciousness fall in the equation? Instead of bringing freedom, merging ourselves with technology could chain consciousness to the physical body and material world, overriding our natural capacity for spiritual evolution.’
‘Even as the Zionists in Palestine bombarded the Gaza Strip, another form of Zionist aggression drew less attention—the continuing Zionist war against Christianity.
On July 17, 2012, Zionist Knesset member Michael Ben-Ari publicly destroyed a copy of the New Testament, saying:
“This abominable book galvanized the murder of millions of Jews during the Inquisition and during auto-da-fé instances. Sending the book to MKs is a provocation. There is no doubt that this book and all it represents belongs in the garbage can of history.”’
‘You can inject one under your skin and no one will ever notice. Using short-range radio frequency identification (RFID) signals, it can transmit your identity as you pass through a security checkpoint or walk into a football stadium. It can help you buy groceries at Wal-Mart. In a worst-case scenario – if you are kidnapped in a foreign country, for example – it could save your life.
Microchip implants like the ones pet owners use to track their dogs and cats could become commonplace in humans in the next decade. Experts are divided on whether they’re appropriate for people, but the implants could offer several advantages. For soldiers and journalists in war zones, an implant could be the difference between life and death. A tracker could also help law enforcement quickly locate a kidnapped child.’
‘Nearly every pregnancy and health advocacy group in the nation, including Consumer Reports, advises pregnant women to avoid consuming products like canned tuna fish that contain high levels of neurotoxic mercury. But the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) has released new guidelines urging pregnant women to get their seasonal flu shots, even though these vaccines often contain up to 25,000 times more inorganic mercury in the form of thimerosal than the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) maximum contaminant levels for drinking water.’
‘It is still a mystery why a 55-gallon drum containing nuclear waste exploded in mid-February at the government’s Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) in New Mexico. But new reports indicate that, following the explosion, a large mass of what witnesses say looked like a cloud of whipped cream traveled up a ventilation duct and spewed into the air, exposing at least 21 workers to deadly plutonium.
The media claims that the amount of plutonium in the mass was minimal, containing less radioactivity than what an average person is exposed to from space radiation hitting the earth. But if this was the case, the plant would not still be closed, say some experts. According to the Los Angeles Times, the plant, located near Carlsbad, has been shuttered for several months without explanation, leaving many questioning what is taking place.’
‘Germany’s top supermarkets, the powerhouses of Europe when it comes to retail, have delivered a blow to the biotech industry by forcing the German poultry industry to return to the use of non-GMO feed.
It was announced last Thursday that the German supermarkets, with a broad consensus, recently demanded from the German Poultry Association (ZDG) to stop using GMO feed for both egg and poultry meat production, starting from January 1st 2015. That is the date when the retailers want to receive GMO-free fed products again, meaning poultry suppliers will have to rush to get their feed supply chains free from GMO feed once more.’
‘When an article appears in Foreign Affairs, the mouthpiece of the policy-setting Council on Foreign Relations, recommending that the Federal Reserve do a money drop directly on the 99%, you know the central bank must be down to its last bullet.
The September/October issue of Foreign Affairs features an article by Mark Blyth and Eric Lonergan titled “Print Less But Transfer More: Why Central Banks Should Give Money Directly To The People.” It’s the sort of thing normally heard only from money reformers and Social Credit enthusiasts far from the mainstream. What’s going on?’
‘A Muslim engineer has been barred from accessing nuclear sites in France, with his lawyer maintaining that the man is a victim of Islamophobia.
On Monday, a court in the northeastern French town of Chalons-en-Champagne upheld the ban on the Muslim man, citing his alleged links to militant groups operating inside the Middle East.
The court then said the management could prevent those “undergoing a process of political and religious radicalization” from accessing sensitive sites.’
‘The British parliament says it will continue with its inquiry into the implementation of a joint declaration between China and Britain regarding the sovereignty of Hong Kong.
The announcement comes shortly after China condemned the investigation, calling it a “highly inappropriate act which constitutes interference in China’s internal affairs.”
On Tuesday, Richard Ottaway, the chairman of the British parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee, said the investigation was not an interference in China’s internal affairs.
“We are not stopping the inquiry. We met yesterday afternoon and decided to continue,” he said.’
‘Human Rights Watch (HRW) has bewailed the arrest of one of the witnesses in its investigation into mass killings in Egypt last summer.
According to the New York-based group, Mohammed Tareq was detained during a protest in the city of Alexandria on Friday.
The rights body said Tareq is investigated for allegedly illegally protesting, and of belonging to the Muslim Brotherhood.
Tareq had given testimony about the 2013 security crackdown on a sit-in at Rabaah al-Adawiya Square, including a recorded statement on how he was shot with live ammunition in his arm and chest.’
