Excellent Article From Paul Craig Roberts: The Tide Is Turning - The Official Story Is Now The Conspiracy Theory

Northerntruthseeker at Northerntruthseeker - 27 minutes ago
With the 15th anniversary of the Israeli Mossad attack on America that killed some 3000 innocent people and plunged the United States into a never ending and very fraudulent "war on terror" on behalf of the psychotic Jews that control America, I for one am still so surprised that there are people out there that still have "faith" in their criminal governments and still actually believe the bullshit "official story" of 9-11 as being reality! It is indeed shocking to see so many gullible people out there that continue to walk around with blinders on and NOT realizing that everything ... more »

The Syrian War To Free Itself From The Evil US/Israel/NATO Criminal Cabal: Breaking News About Another "Ceasefire" Agreement!

Northerntruthseeker at Northerntruthseeker - 27 minutes ago
A few months ago, the criminals in the US/Israel/NATO cabal were able to fool the world by getting the Russians and the Syrians to agree to a "ceasefire" in the fighting for Syria... It is a fact that that "ceasefire" at that time was a sham, and was used by the cabal to rush in new weapons and reinforcements to their beleaguered "terrorists" aka mercenaries that were in danger at the time of being annihilated by the good guys, the Syrian government forces and their allies... After that "ceasefire" ended, it should have been obvious to the Syrians and their Russian allies that it wa... more »

Pipelines, Pipe Bombs And Protests-- Standing Rock, North Dakota

*- by Tracy B. Ann* Last Saturday, security for the Dakota Access pipeline used mace and dogs to attack peaceful Native American protesters from Standing Rock Reservation. The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe is fighting on many fronts to stop this pipeline from coming so near their land..

"Consider the following. We humans are social beings. We come into the world as the result of others' actions. We survive here in dependence on others. Whether we like it or not, there is hardly a moment of our lives when we do not benefit from others' activities. For this reason it is hardly surprising that most of our happiness arises in the context of our relationships with others. Nor is it so remarkable that our greatest joy should come when we are motivated by concern for others. But that is not all.

"Youth is not a time of life, it is a state of mind. It is a temper of the will, a quality of the imagination, a vigor of the emotions, a predominance of courage over timidity, of the appetite for adventure over the love of ease. Nobody grows old by merely living a number of years. People grow old by deserting their ideals. Years wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul. Worry, doubt, self-distrust, fear and despair, these are the long, long years that bow the head and turn the growing spirit back to dust. Whether seventy or seventeen there is in every beings h... more »

Is Retaliation Illegal? Sometimes

Lots of people approach me every week and say they feel they were retaliated against. I usually have to ask, "Retaliation for what?" I think there's a basic misunderstanding of what retaliation is, and when it's illegal. The first part of the problem is understanding retaliation itself. Webster's defines retaliation as: To do something bad to someone who has hurt you or treated you badly : to get revenge against someone So retaliation = revenge. The next issue, which is the core problem in retaliation cases, is whether what you did that was "bad" in your employer's eyes is somethin... more »

*“Is Tide Going Out on Hillary?”* by Patrick J. Buchanan "Were the election held today, Hillary Clinton would probably win a clear majority of the Electoral College. Her problem: The election is two months off. Sixty days out, one senses she has lost momentum- the “Big Mo” of which George H. W. Bush boasted following his Iowa triumph in 1980- and her campaign is in a rut, furiously spinning its wheels. The commander in chief forum Wednesday night should have been a showcase for the ex-secretary of state’s superior knowledge and experience. Instead, Clinton looked like a witness bef... more »

sue at Is the BBC biased? - 9 hours ago
I must admit I was horrified at last evening’s BBC QT (Labour Party special) but it wasn’t entirely David Dimbleby’s fault. He began by announcing that this particular audience were Labour supporters - including Corbybistas, Owenites and undecideds. Also Ukippers, assorted others (Greens) and possibly Tories, I forget. It was a kind of covering clause, preemptively distancing the production team from the inevitable partisan hollering, wolf-whistling, booing and cat-calling, given the inherent nastiness of the participants. Audience rowdiness is Nothing To Do With the BBC. I imagi... more »

RT Exposes Evil ISIS Tactics In Libya

Edmondo Burr at Your News Wire - 9 hours ago
The Islamic State (IS) in North Africa is targeting civilian infrastructure such as hospitals with armored car bombs using brainwashed suicide bombers who laugh at the prospect of their own death and others while seeking martyrdom. RT’s William Whiteman reports from Sirte on the unscrupulous tactics used by the Islamic State (IS) in Libya.: During his visit to the city, Whiteman was lucky to narrowly escape the fate of many victims of car bombs, which are grimly referred to by pro-government Libyan fighters as “dogmas.” If not for a fighter with an RPG who spotted and stopped a suic... more »

U.S. House Passes Bill Allowing Americans To Sue Saudi Arabia For 9/11

Edmondo Burr at Your News Wire - 10 hours ago
Following the lead of the Senate, the U.S. House of Representatives unanimously passed a bill on Friday allowing families of 9/11 victims to sue Saudi Arabia. The bill passed without any objection or opposition. But it could be a cruel hoax, President Obama has promised to veto the bill. It comes on the eve of the 15th anniversary of the September 11th attacks in New York City.

Public Money for Fake Clinics (An ongoing series)

noreply@blogger.com (fern hill) at DAMMIT JANET! - 21 hours ago
Here at DJ! one of our aims is to defund and disrupt the operations of fake clinics, aka crisis pregnancy centres (CPCs). Their outrageous lies, manipulation, sneakiness, and slut-shaming are well documented. They've been around a long time in North America and are somewhat cannier here than they used to be thanks to relentless investigations. But they're relatively new in Ireland, where just a few days ago, a counsellor at a CPC in Dublin was caught on tape telling an undercover reporter that abortion causes breast cancer. (It does not, in case that needs saying again.) Of cours... more »

*Anthony Cox* with *Ken Stewart and Chris Gillham* Diurnal Temperature Range (DTR) is the difference between the maximum and minimum temperatures over a period typically a 24 hour period. The alarmists regard DTR as an essential part of AGW. Karl Braganza, a prominent alarmist at the BoM, for instance describes DTR as a *fingerprint* of AGW. Braganza says: *greater global warming at night and during winter is more typical of increased greenhouse gases*, *rather than an increase in solar radiation*.
