- Bioweapons Expert Reaffirms Belief that Ebola Escaped from a Biowarfare Lab (Washington’s blog, Oct 27, 2014):
Does DNA Sequencing Show that Ebola Is Naturally-Occurring?
In response to bioweapons expert’s Dr. Francis Boyle’s conviction that this strain of Ebola escaped from a biowarfare laboratory in West Africa, Empty Wheel’s Jim White argues that DNA sequencing shows that Ebola is naturally occurring.
Dr. Boyle sent us the following email, responding to White’s critique:
1.The primary problem with this entire Harvard study is this: These results they admit come out of the Kenema BSL4 Lab itself which was up to its eyeballs in doing this dirty biowarfare work there before it was shut down. So they did this work and then shut down the lab. Dead labs tell no tales.
As I see it, the biowarriors at BSL4 Kenema are exonerating themselves by means of this “study.” This is basically an exercise in Cover Your Biowarrior Butts. Continue reading »
- Pentagon To Quarantine Troops Returning From West Africa For 21 Days (ZeroHedge, Oct 27, 2014):
The United Nations’ Secretary-General stated that returning workers from Ebola-stricken nations should not be mandatorily quarantined. President Obama expressed his displeasure at mandatory quarantines and “concerns with the unintended consequences of policies not grounded in science.” So, the news that “Army troops returning from Ebola zones will be held in isolation for 21 days,” will likely raise Obama’s ire. The somewhat pathetic and stunning spin here is that Senior Pentagon officials say it is not a “quarantine,” but rather “controlled monitoring.”

Radoslaw Sikorski — the speaker of the Polish Parliament and that nation’s former foreign minister — was forced to apologize after claiming that he overheard Vladimir Putin in 2008 suggest that Ukraine should be divided between Russia and Poland.
A bombshell report published by Politico Magazine over the weekend called “Putin’s Coup” alleged that Sikorski heard that the Russian president told Donald Tusk, then the Polish prime minister, that Poland should “become participants in the divide of Ukraine” during a Polish delegation’s 2008 visit to Moscow.
“He wanted us to become participants in this partition of Ukraine… This was one of the first things that Putin said to my prime minister, Donald Tusk, when he visited Moscow,” Politico’s Ben Judah quoted Sikorski as saying following an interview that formed the basis of the Sunday article.
- Poland to move thousands of troops to border with Ukraine (RT, Oct 27, 2014):
Warsaw has decided to relocate troops from the west of the country towards its eastern border due to “the biggest security crisis since the Cold War.” It is a major realignment of the military structure, Poland’s defense minister told the AP.
“The geopolitical situation has changed, we have the biggest crisis of security since the Cold War and we must draw conclusions from that,” Poland’s Defense Minister Tomasz Siemoniak told The Associated Press on Monday.
He explained that the number of troops stationed at three military bases in the east will triple in two years. Siemoniak added that the quantity of military hardware stationed at the bases will also be increased. Continue reading »
Hillary against Jeb Bush in 2016?
Wow, what a prospect!
- Bush clan rallies support for Jeb’s expected presidential run in 2016 (RT, Oct 27, 2014):
Will the White House soon host another President Bush? According to family members, Jeb Bush — a son of former president George H.W. Bush and the brother of the current president’s predecessor, George W. Bush — is eyeing the oval office.
With the 2016 presidential election now nearly just two years away, potential candidates are becoming increasingly pressured to announce once and for all if they’re willing to throw their hat into the race. Former Florida governor Jeb Bush has long been rumored to be considering a run in 2016 under the Republican Party ticket which, if successful, would make him the third Bush to win a presidential election in 30 years. Now, two of his sons are lending credence to those rumors by telling the media that the odds are better than ever that Jeb Bush will run in 2016. Continue reading »
- Hungarians revolt against internet tax (PHOTOS, VIDEO) (RT, Oct 27, 2014):
Furious with the government plan to impose tax on Internet data traffic, thousands of Hungarians rallied in front of the Economy Ministry in Budapest to protect the freedom of the internet from the ‘anti-democratic’ measure.
Tens of thousands gathered in front of the Economy Ministry building on Sunday, urging the politicians to scrap the plan that will see internet service providers (ISPs) pay 150 forints ($0.62) for every gigabyte of data traffic transferred over their networks.
Although the draft suggests that ISPs would be able to offset corporate income tax against the new levy, the protesters believe that eventually the new tax burden will end up pinned on common users. The Association of IT, Telecommunications and Electronics Companies has already said the tax would force them to raise prices, Reuters reports.

The Real is tumbling too, breaking above 2.54 to its weakest against the USD since Dec 2008.

- In Cold War, U.S. Spy Agencies Used 1,000 Nazis ( The New York Times, Oct 26, 2014):
WASHINGTON — In the decades after World War II, the C.I.A. and other United States agencies employed at least a thousand Nazis as Cold War spies and informants and, as recently as the 1990s, concealed the government’s ties to some still living in America, newly disclosed records and interviews show.
At the height of the Cold War in the 1950s, law enforcement and intelligence leaders like J. Edgar Hoover at the F.B.I. and Allen Dulles at the C.I.A. aggressively recruited onetime Nazis of all ranks as secret, anti-Soviet “assets,” declassified records show. They believed the ex-Nazis’ intelligence value against the Russians outweighed what one official called “moral lapses” in their service to the Third Reich. Continue reading »
- Israel approves plan to build 1,000 settler homes in E. Jerusalem (RT, Oct 27, 2014):
The Israeli government has approved plans to build over 1,000 new settler homes in East Jerusalem. It will expand two existing Israeli settlements on part of the territories seized in 1967.
An official in Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office declined to comment on the possible political and diplomatic impact. He said on Monday that “The government has decided to advance the planning of more than 1,000 units in Jerusalem – roughly 400 in Har Homa and about 600 in Ramat Shlomo,” as cited by Reuters.

- Harry S. Truman 1947 Diary (Truman Library):
“The Jews, I find are very, very selfish. They care not how many Estonians, Latvians, Finns, Poles, Yugoslavs or Greeks get murdered or mistreated as D[isplaced] P[ersons] as long as the Jews get special treatment. Yet when they have power, physical, financial or political neither Hitler nor Stalin has anything on them for cruelty or mistreatment to the under dog.“
Put an underdog on top and it makes no difference whether his name is Russian, Jewish, Negro, Management, Labor, Mormon, Baptist he goes haywire. I’ve found very, very few who remember their past condition when prosperity comes.
- Truman diary reveals scorn ‘for cruel Jews‘ (Telegraph, July 12, 2003):
President Harry S Truman, long hailed by Zionists for recognising the state of Israel at its inception, viewed Jews with disdain and believed they were crueller than Hitler, according to newly discovered diaries.
“The Jews, I find, are very, very selfish,” Truman wrote in July 1947, 10 months before the British mandate in Palestine expired and David Ben-Gurion declared Israel’s independence. Continue reading »
- Air Force prepares to dismantle HAARP ahead of summer shutdown (Alaska Dispatch, May 14, 2014):
FAIRBANKS — The U.S. Air Force gave official notice to Congress Wednesday that it intends to dismantle the $300 million High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program in Gakona this summer.
The shutdown of HAARP, a project created by the late Sen. Ted Stevens when he wielded great control over the U.S. defense budget, will start after a final research experiment takes place in mid-June, the Air Force said in a letter to Congress Tuesday.
The University of Alaska has expressed interest in taking over the research site, which is off the Tok Cutoff in an area where black spruce was cleared a quarter-century ago for the Air Force backscatter radar project that was never completed. But the school has not volunteered to pay $5 million a year to run HAARP.
Responding to questions from Sen. Lisa Murkowski during a Senate hearing Wednesday, David Walker, deputy assistant secretary of the Air Force for science, technology and engineering, said this is“not an area that we have any need for in the future” and it would not be a good use of Air Force research funds to keep HAARP going. “We’re moving on to other ways of managing the ionosphere, which the HAARP was really designed to do,” he said. “To inject energy into the ionosphere to be able to actually control it. But that work has been completed.” Continue reading »

As news about an active shooter at Marysville-Pilchuck High School (just North of Seattle) was breaking… A CNN reporter seemed caught off-guard when she was handed something to read cold. It was notification about SWAT training around the same area. You can hear her shake the paper and say “this was yesterday” in an irritated tone… It just so happens there is yet another school shooting at the same time as another SWAT training event?! FALSE FLAG??!
In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss the increasingly bankrupt British government as a sinking ship on George Osborne’s river of denial. They discuss the remedy for the ‘too many poor people’ for democracy problem being global trade deals like TTIP and TPP whereby elected leaders can claim ‘their hands are tied’ by contractual obligations. In the second half, Max interviews Helena Norberg-Hodge of LocalFutures.org about the Economics of Happiness in a time of rising inequality.
From the article:
“The money has to go to the federal government because the federal government will spend that money better than the private sector will spend it.”
“Don’t let anybody tell you it’s corporations and businesses create jobs,” Clinton said.

We have a very serious problem with Hillary. I was asked years ago to review Hillary’s Commodity Trading to explain what went on. Effectively, they did trades and simply put winners in her account and the losers in her lawyer’s. This way she gets money that is laundered through the markets – something that would get her 25 years today. Continue reading »

- Are you awake yet? Government-enforced medical quarantines just went from ‘conspiracy theory’ to official policy in NJ and NY (Natural News, Oct 25, 2014):
The states of New York and New Jersey have leapfrogged federal guidelines and set up their own mandatory 21-day quarantine requirements for arriving passengers who had direct contact with Ebola patients in West Africa.
“The patients with the highest level of possible exposure will be automatically quarantined for 21 days at a government-regulated facility,” reports CBS News.  Government-run quarantine camps, in other words, are now a present-day reality in America.

A 19-year-old mortarman has become the first US soldier to die in the fight against ISIS in Iraq, albeit from a “non-combat injury,” the Pentagon acknowledged.
The death of Marine Lance Corporal Sean P. Neal of Riverside, California, which occurred on Thursday in Baghdad, is under investigation, according to the Pentagon. He was assigned to 2nd Battalion, 7th Marine Regiment, and was one of 1,600 US troops serving in Iraq. Pentagon officials confirmed his death Friday night. Continue reading »
- Idaho Police Harass Cyclists, Ordering Them to Stop Recording (PINAC, Oct 24, 2014):
Back in August, a group of friends in Caldwell Idaho were detained by local law enforcement after being asked to leave a local skate park for being there after hours. The park closes at 11 p.m. The police report says the officer arrived at 11:12.
The situation escalated when one of the detainees began recording the exchange. Although the phone is pointed towards the ground, the audio from the clip gives a pretty clear depiction of the scene.
According to ABC6:
“I need you to put that cell phone down right now because you are detained. Give me the cell phone. Give me the cell phone,” the officer said.
“It is within my legal rights,” replied one of the men.
”No you’re not. You don’t have any legal rights now because right now you just broke the law,” the officer replies.
Since when do citizens lose their rights? You would think those rights would be especially important during moments of police interaction. Continue reading »

An American journalist has been killed in a car crash in Turkey just days after claiming she claimed the Turkish intelligence services had threatened her over her reporting of the siege of Kobane.
Serena Shim, who worked for Iran’s state-owned Press TV as Turkey correspondent, died in the city of Suruc after the car in which she was travelling reportedly collided with a ‘heavy vehicle’.
Shim’s death came just days after she spoke on camera of her fears of being arrested, claiming Turkish intelligence agents had accused her of spying after one of her reports suggested ISIS militants were being smuggled back and forth over the Syrian border in the back of aid vehicles.
http://democracynow.org – We are on the road in the historic city of Vienna, Austria, not far from the Czech Republic where President Obama gave a major address in 2009 that called for a nuclear-free world. His disarmament efforts were cited when he won the Nobel Peace Prize, but since then advocates say little progress has been made. A recent New York Times investigation found the United States is on pace to spend as much as $1 trillion over the next three decades to modernize its nuclear arsenal and facilities. This week, more than 150 countries at the United Nations signed a joint statement calling on nuclear powers to attend the third major conference on the humanitarian impact of nuclear weapons scheduled this December in Vienna. The United States has yet to attend one of the meetings. We are joined by Elena Sokova, executive director of the Vienna Center for Disarmament and Non-Proliferation.
It has long been alleged that the systematic abuse of children took place in the Kincora home at the hands of a paedophile ring thought to be linked to MI5.
It has also been claimed that MI5 blocked police investigations into the abuse, who reportedly used the information of child abuse to blackmail, manipulate and coerce members of the establishment who were committing the abuse. Continue reading »

- UK Gun Owners Now Subject To Warrantless Home Searches (The Sleuth Journal, Oct 24, 2014):
Registered gun owners in the United Kingdom are now subject to unannounced visits to their homes under new guidance that allows police to inspect firearms storage without a warrant.
The new policy from the British Home Office went into effect Oct. 15, permitting police and constabularies to conduct surprise home visits to legitimate gun owners.
“Americans should view the UK’s ever-expanding gun control efforts with grave concern,” the National Rifle Association’s lobbying arm said on its website Friday.
Britain’s gun owners were subject to the home visits before the update, but the inspection had to be conducted with prior notice. Continue reading »
