Baton Rouge, Nice, Dallas, Orlando – A Dark And Distressing Time Has Descended Upon The Civilized World
Netflix Plummets As Growth Story Comes To A Halt: Company Says "We Are Not Growing As Fast As We Would Lke"
Actually, the Nice horror was the demented suicide of a wretch who recently got fired, divorced and arrested for road rage, not a planned jihadi terrorist attack.
Beyond that, the real jihadi threat is rooted in blowback, and combatting it is a domestic police function. Enough militatistic bellicosity already!
The inconvenient truth is, Washington and its NATO vassals have brought bombs, drones, occupations and slaughter to towns and villages throughout the greater middle east for upwards of three decades. It is that senseless intervention and aggression that has fueled the rise of vengeful barbarians who operate under the ideological cover of a twisted Sunni jihaddism.
In fact, it was the Bush/Clinton/Obama wars which gave rise first to al-Qaeda and then to ISIS. In very substantial degree Washington trained them, armed them and then incited them to their anti-western rampages.
Below is the official video of the Seattle City Council’s Select Committee on Seattle City Light’s Strategic Plan 2017-2022 held on July 14, 2016 chaired by Seattle’s Celebrity Socialist, Kshama Sawant. This meeting very fortunately featured the new council woman’s majority minus one member. To save time for all, three especially significant segments are concisely listed with descriptions and specific timepoints for your viewing pleasure. What you are about to see is Seattle City Council members and a CEO of Seattle City Light (SCL) – for the first time in memory – actually beginning to behave as statespersons, rather than as tools of the corporate state, and some Seattle “smart” meter truth activists and their unseen associates modeling for others how to use the new peaceful but powerful multifaceted, collaborative paradigm with which they also can pursue their causes successfully. Enjoy!
In a previous article on the U.S. backing Russia into a corner and provoking a response that can lead to WWIII, we referenced the following report from the Daily Mail: Putin sacks EVERY commander in his Baltic fleet in Stalin-style purge.
The information is important, because the article details the importance of Kaliningrad, the westernmost Russian military staging base on the Baltic and the hub of a tremendous amount of posturing by Russian forces to counter the US-NATO buildup in the area. Kaliningrad is detailed in purpose and history, and this in itself is important to understand in order to follow future movements and deployments by Russia. There is another, subtler reason the article’s information is critical to understand: the mind of a Russian leader who was “brought up” and schooled in the Soviet system of warfare.
When earlier today we reported that Turkey has closed the airspace above, and suspended all US-led air missions out of the giant Incirlik airbase (which houses some 50 US nuclear bombs), we said that there is speculation the “airbase may be held “hostage” by Ankara as a bargaining chip ahead of demands for the extradition of Erdogan’s arch enemy, Fethullah Gulen, currently a resident of the state of Pennsylvania.” A few hours later this was partially validated when during a televised speech, Turkish President Erdogan called on the United States to extradite Fethullah Gulen, a US-based Muslim cleric he accuses of being behind Turkey’s failed coup attempt.
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s private email scandal continues to be a drag on her numbers with the public, with a new ABC News / Washington Post poll out Sunday showing a whopping 72 percent believe she is too willing to bend the rules.
FBI Director James Comey’s criticism of Clinton’s “extremely careless” email practices are a large factor in Clinton’s struggles to win the public’s trust. Although she was not charged with mishandling classified material, the damage to her public image has been significant.
She led Republican rival Donald Trump 47-to-43 percent in their matchup, but that was a steep drop from the 12-point advantage she enjoyed last month. Fifty-eight percent of registered voters in the poll said they were dissatisfied with choosing between Trump and Clinton.
In today’s world, toxins are all around us – making detoxification essential for optimal health. For example, an estimated 3 million tons of pesticides enter the environment thanks to conventional farming practices – every year.
In addition, there are about 475 toxic chemicals within a typical woman’s daily personal care products. From household cleaners to indoor air pollution to mercury-based dental fillings, toxins threaten our health in so many ways.
The latest crisis in Turkey triggered by the so-called military coup attempt is not the first of its kind. Military coups have become a sort of tradition laid down first by the Young Turks, or even the Janissaries. One must note that the “Young Turk Revolution” in 1908 too began as a military coup. Turkish military elites were behind the military coups of May 1960, March 1971, and September 1980, appearing upon the political scene each time when there was a need to defend the gains of the Kemalist Republic. Back in 1997 it was the military elites that forced Turkish Prime Minister Necmettin Erbakan to shift Turkish laws toward secularism.
It is a fairly well known fact that Turkey’s military forces are a stronghold of Kemalism. Young Turkish students, the future officers, since their first days of training the spirit of unconditional devotion to the revolutionary achievements of Kemal Ataturk” impressed upon them. At the same time, most radical parties behind the cloak of Islam in Turkey have always despised the army who seems to be always standing in their way. Every attempt they make to strengthen their positions within the political arena have always ended with military coups.
