- Smuggling Drugs Across The Mexican Border? There’s A Drone For That (ZeroHedge, Jan 22, 2015):
Worried about the honesty of your drug mule? Concerned that your smugglers will demand higher and higher minimum wage? There’s a drone for that. Once again technology has enabled ‘progress’ as AP reports police in a Mexican border city said Wednesday that a drone overloaded with illicit methamphetamine crashed into a supermarket parking lot. As AVWeb notes, drones carrying illegal drugs and contraband have been among the creative ideas used by smugglers, and crashes do happen from loss of control or perhaps weight-and-balance problems. Brings a whole new meaning to ‘Breaking Bad’.
- ‘Covert team’ caught after shelling kills at least 9 in eastern Ukraine (RT, Jan 22, 2015):
What local authorities call a “covert group” has been arrested in Donetsk. The group is suspected of the shelling during rush hour on Thursday morning, which took the lives of at least nine people and injured up to twenty.
Residents of Donetsk’s Leninsky district heard shelling at about 08:30 local time, media report. Windows in the buildings near a tram stop were blown out. Locals say they believed their district to be “a quiet place” and were shocked by the “tragedy that happened when people were heading to work.”
A trolleybus was also hit, and eye-witnesses said there were victims inside, as well as bodies lying at the stop, local news outlets said. Conflicting reports, citing medical sources, indicate there may have been up to 13 deaths.
“A covert group has been operating, they have been arrested now. No more comments,” the defense minister of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic Vladimir Kononov told Gazeta.Ru newspaper. Continue reading »
As if that witch had to look at secret dossiers …
A classified government file describing “unnatural” sexual activity occurring in Westminster circles in the early 1980s may have been seen by ex-Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, an intelligence expert says.
The documents were stored in the ex-PM’s files, suggesting she may have seen them during her premiership.
A spokesman for the Cabinet Office told RT on Wednesday the dossier will be sent to Britain’s inquiry into historic child sex abuse.
The sensitive document was discovered by security and intelligence expert, Dr Chris Murphy, who was suspicious of its title: “PREM19/588 -SECURITY. Allegations against former public [missing word] of unnatural sexual proclivities; security aspects 1980 Oct 27 – 1981 Mar 20.”
Murphy told Sky News he found the file when he was sifting through the “’PREM’ Prime Minister file series for the 1980s.”
“I think I did a double-take and then started wondering what the potential implications of the title, which is a little vague, could be,” he said.
The precise details of the file have not been publicly disclosed. A Cabinet Office spokesman said the document won’t be released to the public on the grounds of national security. Continue reading »

- Alan Dershowitz denies EVER being around underage women in presence of pedophile Jeffrey Epstein… just one day after ‘sex slave’ said he would chat with the billionaire during sex acts (Daily Mail, Jan 22, 2015):
A Harvard law professor named with Prince Andrew in a ‘sex slave’ case today insisted that he never saw anything improper at the home of their billionaire pedophile friend, Jeffrey Epstein.
Alan Dershowitz’s claims on Thursday came just one day after accuser Virginia Roberts said in new court filings that the lawyer would chat with Epstein as she performed a sex act on the billionaire.
Speaking in an emphatic interview on the Today show , Dershowitz again accused Roberts of ‘making the whole thing up’ and said her lawyers are putting ‘real’ rape victims ‘in a terrible position’.
‘I was never in the presence of a single underage woman,’ he said. ‘I never saw [Epstein] doing anything improper. I was not a witness. I was not a participant. And I will prove it.’

- “It’s A Butchery” – 12 Killed In Terrorist Attack On French Satirical Magazine Charlie Hebdo: Live Webcast (ZeroHedge, Jan 7, 2014):
A tragedy is unfolding in Paris at the moment where armed men stormed the Paris offices of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo on Wednesday morning, killing “at least 12 people” and injuring more, said a police officer. As a reminder, it was in November 2011 when the Charlie Hebdo’s headquarters were gutted by fire, hours before a special issue of the weekly featuring the Prophet Muhammad appeared on newsstands. Since then, the weekly moved to a new location, which was guarded by police, who were also shot at Wednesday morning. The shooters opened fire inside the magazine’s offices using automatic AK-47 rifles before fleeing, said the officer, cited by the WSJ. The attackers, described as “a commando with Kalasnikov and pump action… they went in there to kill” are believed to still be at large as France is “in shock” according to its president.
