US officials have declared a state of emergency in Santa Barbara County, Southern California after a raging wildfire has more than tripled in size in the past week. Threatening hundreds of homes and prompting mandatory evacuations, the so-called Sherpa Fire is raging across approxiamtely 4,000 acres with only 5 percent of the blaze contained, officials in Santa Barbara County said.

If Obama is responsible for Orlando, is Bush responsible for 9/11?

Marc McDonald at BeggarsCanBeChoosers.com - 15 hours ago
*By MARC McDONALD* Sen. John McCain got a lot of flak on Thursday for saying that President Obama is "directly responsible" for the shooting at Orlando's Pulse nightclub in which 49 people were killed. I've got a couple of observations about this remark. First of all, McCain jumped the shark for me a long time ago. I'm not sure why anyone would be surprised at this latest nutty remark. Some time during the fiasco of the Bush years, McCain went from being a straight-shooter, sensible Republican to being prone to unhinged outbursts that one would normally encounter on talk radio.

German FM Says We Should Not Fuel Tensions With Russia

Carol Adl at Your News Wire - 16 hours ago
Germany’s foreign minister has blasted NATO’s war games in Eastern Europe, saying such drills will not bring security to the region and will instead stoke tensions with Russia. Frank-Walter Steinmeier told Bild am Sonntag newspaper that inflaming the standoff with Russia would endanger European security and increase risk of reviving an “old confrontation.” Steinmeier said that rather than inflaming the situation further “through saber-rattling and warmongering,” there ought to be more space for dialogue and cooperation with Moscow. Press TV reports: NATO launched the Anakonda-16 man... more »

'A man was stopped by police after leaving a Union flag in front of the floral tributes for murdered MP Jo Cox in the village where she was killed. The Union flag has, for some, become increasingly toxic after being adopted by the far-right. It is a symbol of a number of nationalist organisations, including the British National Party.' The union flag is the flag of this Country, it is the flag of the Country that Jo Cox was an MP for. It is ... more »

Dear Friends in Maine, United States, Hello from Gangjeong village, Jeju Island, South Korea. Despite our struggle against base construction for nearly nine years, there was a ceremony for the completion of the Jeju navy base construction this February. However, despite the navy base, we will do our best to maintain village community. And we cannot get along with the navy as long as it continues to foster conflicts. We heard that there is a ceremony for the christening of a recently built Zumwalt destroyer in the Bath Iron Works (BIW), Maine, United States on June 18 and that t... more »

Overwhelming Evidence Points To Orlando Shooting Being A FALSE FLAG

Big Dan at Big Dan's Big Blog - 18 hours ago
The first question should ALWAYS be: WAS THIS A FALSE FLAG? Then go from there... It looks like the government and mainstream media are once again LYING to us and pushing the usual FALSE FLAG stories: either a Muslim terrorist lone nut gunman or a white supremacist neo-Nazi rightwing lone nut gunman. In this post, I will provide all the information the government and mainstream media aren't telling us about the Orlando shooting and Omar Mateen. Some of the information is actually FROM the mainstream media, but reported ONCE and then swithed to THE LONE NUT GUNMAN "official story". ...more »

Subdivisions of string theory are completely misunderstood by critics

Luboš Motl at The Reference Frame - 19 hours ago
Tetragraviton wrote an insightful blog post Most of String Theory Is Not String Pheno where he tries to clarify some brutal misconceptions believed by Backreaction – as well as most laymen who read similar "sources" – about "what various string theorists actually do". He points out that Hossenfelder pretends to be a hero fighting against a powerful community, the string theory community, but in reality, she is only waging jihad against a small minority of the string community that is actually less numerous than groups such as the "loop quantum gravity fans" and others.
