WHO Expected To Declare Ebola Outbreak “International Emergency” As It Jumps Borders

In April, we pointed out that over the prior months, many public health experts had claimed the deadly Ebola virus outbreak that has been ravaging the Congo will not become a global health threat, despite recent events painting a much less optimistic picture. We also warned that despite people in the West often thinking of Ebola as a disease that only strikes “superstitious locals” in the deepest jungles of the Democratic Republic of Congo, there are now pressing warning signs and it’s time to start paying attention. According to Reuters, the World Health Organization (WHO) is now preparing to declare an “international emergency” over the latest Ebola…

Corporations Suddenly Realize That Once-Coveted Millennials Are A “Screwed Generation”

Right now, millennials represent the largest single consumer group in the United States: they number 83.1 million and they represent a full quarter of the US population. When it comes to corporations targeting consumers, millennials are at the top of the list for those obvious reasons, according to a new article by Adweek. But now, generational expert Alexis Abramson, who has 25 years experience in the field, is claiming that corporations aren’t getting the ROI that they anticipated from millennials. “There was a great deal of interest [in millennials], but there wasn’t as much due diligence around that group,” she…

10 toxic chemicals to avoid in personal care products

Opting for locally sourced, whole foods is a critical step in taking care of your personal health. But, being concerned about what food goes into your mouth is only half the battle. You may be surprised to learn the personal care items you and your family are using – every day – are putting your health in jeopardy because of the toxic chemicals inside. From cleansers to cosmetics, the personal care products in your home may contain known cancer-causing chemicals.  Make the switch (today), because the use of chemical-free shampoo and other natural personal care products will greatly reduce your…

President Trump Doubles Down on Support for GMOs, Signs Executive Order Allowing Crops and Animals to Flood Market Without Scientific Review

Donald Trump’s tenure as president has been nothing short of a disaster for holistic health and clean food advocates since he took over as Commander in Chief back in January 2017, and lately, the disappointments and letdowns have shown no signs of slowing. In January 2018, Trump uttered the words “biotechnology” for the first time as part of a speech in Nashville, Tennessee, during which he set the stage for GMO “food” companies like Bayer, Monsanto and DuPont to thrive with surprising comments. “We are streamlining regulations that have blocked cutting-edge biotechnology, setting free our farmers to innovate, thrive, and to…

The biggest animal disease outbreak of all time is going out-of-control right now

A deadly pig virus, the “pig Ebola,” is spreading uncontrollably across huge swathes of the world in what’s become the biggest animal disease outbreak the planet has ever faced. Outbreaks of African swine fever have recently taken hold in pig farms across mainland China, Hong Kong, North Korea, Mongolia, and Vietnam. There have also been reports of infected wild boars in parts of Eastern and Central Europe. Up to 200 million pigs are currently infected, while millions more are being culled into an attempt to contain the situation. However, in all likelihood, the problem won’t be resolved for years to come. “This…

Fear Porn: Trump warns of epic stock market crash if Dems win in 2020

President Trump Opens a New Window. — just days before his official campaign launch — warned that stock markets will crash if he is not re-elected in the 2020 presidential election Opens a New Window. . “The Trump Economy is setting records, and has a long way up to go….However, if anyone but me takes over in 2020 (I know the competition very well), there will be a Market Crash the likes of which has not been seen before!” Trump wrote in a tweet on Saturday. Trump is expected to kick off his campaign on Tuesday in Florida. His tweet…

Trump Admin Takes First Step to Demand Payback From Sponsors of Immigrants Who Use Welfare

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service has begun to remind immigrants that if they receive any welfare benefits prior to becoming a citizen, their sponsors will be responsible for paying back the government. “If the sponsored immigrant receives any federal means-tested public benefits, the sponsor will be expected to reimburse the benefits-granting agency for every dollar of benefits received by the immigrant,” the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) wrote on Twitter on June 14. Immigrants who apply for permanent residency and citizenship in the United States are required to find a sponsor who guarantees to support them financially. The affidavit…

Why is the U.S. government importing thousands of migrants from Ebola-stricken nations and distributing them across U.S. cities?

Health authorities have been warning the public about a new African ebola outbreak that they claim is on the verge of “leaping the border to other countries.” So why, then, are officials in the United States quietly importing — and distributing to communities all throughout America — potentially-infected migrants from these same high-risk areas? InfoWars‘ Owen Shroyer recently attempted to get some answers about this, only to be forcibly removed from a makeshift processing center in San Antonio, Texas, where African migrants are, in fact, being dropped off before being loaded up in vans and shipped across the U.S. Watch the…

City Rules Cops Who Executed Sleeping Man, Shooting Him 55 Times in 3 Seconds, ‘Acted Reasonably’

Willie McCoy was an aspiring 20-year-old rapper whose life was brought to a tragic end in February when six police officers decided to publicly execute him as he slept in his car in the parking lot of a Taco Bell. Now, after nearly six months, and body camera footage showing this execution, the city has ruled the officers “acted reasonably” when they dumped 55 rounds into McCoy in 3.5 seconds. City Attorney Claudia Quintana says they hired a retired cop, Dave Blake of Brentwood-based Blake Consulting, “with experience in training police officers in the use of force” who found in…

Ukrainian oligarchs accused of laundering $470b, buying up much of Cleveland

Billionaires Ihor Kolomoisky and Gennady Bogolyubov used to own Privatbank — the largest bank in Ukraine — and now they are being sued for using it for a decade to launder more than $470b (through its Cyprus subsidiary) ($470b is more than double the GDP of Cyprus over the same period). The bank’s new owners are suing Kolomoisky and Bogolyubov for violating Ohio and Delaware racketeering laws. They claim that Kolomoisky and Bogolyubov used the laundered proceeds to buy up whole neighborhoods in Cleveland, becoming the city’s largest landowner. Additionally, they are accused of buying “several ferroalloy companies across multiple…

Midwest corn farmer on planting season: ‘Disaster like I’ve never seen before’

It’s a tough decision that many of the Midwest’s farmers had to make this month: To plant, or not to plant. James McCune’s corn fields Opens a New Window. in western Illinois are typically covered with rows of hardy, knee-high corn this time of year. Instead, in 2019, five of every six acres he farms sit unplanted, pockmarked with water and mud. “It’s a disaster like I’ve never seen before,” McCune told FOX Business. “My neighbors didn’t get 90 percent of their corn planted.” After non-stop rain plagued the region this spring – when corn farmers typically get seed in the…

Social Media Platform VOAT Goes Offline, Top Site in ‘Drain the Swamp’ Fight – Users Suspect Deep State Interference …Update: Back Up

VOAT was taken offline on Saturday morning. VOAT is a news aggregator and social networking service where registered community members can submit content such as text posts and direct links. VOAT prides itself on being free from censorship. VOAT is despised by the left and the deep state apparatus. If you go to https://voat.co, although hopefully it is back up by the time you get this. Just now I got the following at that site: HTTP Error 503. The service is unavailable. A daily user wrote The Gateway Pundit on Saturday morning to tell us. This is the first time…

The 10 commandments of retirement

We’re faced with a host of thorny retirement issues: Keep Social Security solvent. Make Medicare affordable. Many Americans aren’t saving enough. They want to retire earlier than they can reasonably afford. They’re effectively financially illiterate. But in the end, you don’t need to worry about all Americans. Instead, what you need to worry about is you. Want a comfortable retirement? Here are my 10 commandments: 1. If your preretirement lifestyle is set with a view to what you can sustain after you quit the workforce, you’re likely on track. If not, retirement could mean a sharp drop in living standards.…

Pedo Protecting Pope Urges Carbon Tax to Avert Climate ‘Catastrophe’

Pope Francis warned of disastrous consequences if humanity does not immediately react to the threat of climate change, since the world has reached a “critical moment” and there is no time to waste. “Dear friends, time is running out!” the pope told a group of participants in a Vatican-sponsored conference on energy transition Friday. “We cannot afford the luxury of waiting for others to come forward or of prioritizing short-term economic benefits. The climate crisis requires decisive action from us, here and now.” Despite the pontiff’s frequent denunciation of a “politics of fear,” he seemed determined to paint as frightening…

The 630 Year-Old Reason Eastern Europeans Dislike Islam

Why Eastern Europeans are much more reluctant to accept Muslim migrants than their Western counterparts can be traced back to circumstances surrounding a pivotal battle, that of Kosovo, which took place today, June 15, exactly 630 years ago today in 1389.  It pitted Muslim invaders against Eastern European defenders, or the ancestors of those many Eastern Europeans today who are resistant to Islam. Because the jihad is as old as Islam, it has been championed by diverse peoples throughout the centuries — Arabs in the Middle East, Moors (Berbers and Africans) in Spain and Western Europe, etc.  Islam’s successful entry into Eastern…

Why Magnesium Is a Cornerstone Mineral for Health

Magnesium is the fourth most abundant element in your body,1 and one of the seven essential minerals we can’t live without.2 It’s necessary for the healthy functioning of most cells, but especially your heart, kidneys and muscles. Low levels of magnesium impede cellular metabolic function and deteriorate mitochondrial function. As it is also required for the activation of vitamin D, deficiency may hamper your ability to convert vitamin D from sun exposure and/or oral supplementation. Unfortunately, deficiency is common and research shows even subclinical deficiencies may jeopardize your health. If you’ve recently had a blood panel drawn, you may assume…

The Unholy Alliance Between DNA Sites and Facial Recognition

Technology that was once only seen in dystopian science fiction is rapidly infecting real life. Two means of collecting personal data – DNA databases and facial recognition software – are forming an unholy alliance, and the privacy implications could be devastating. Privacy concerns surrounding DNA and facial recognition aren’t anything new. As the popularity of DNA genealogy websites like Ancestry DNA and 23andMe increase, so do questions over who has access to that data and how it will be used. The use of facial recognition and other biometric data technology is on the rise, and people are expressing concerns (and…

A prescription you can afford: A 30-minute walk every day can reduce your blood pressure as much as a pill

Even the slightest brush with high blood pressure can be enough to scare many people into taking blood pressure medication. After all, high blood pressure can lead to heart disease and raise your risk of heart attack or stroke. However, researchers have found an even better way to get your blood pressure under control, and it’s something you can start right now without a visit to your doctor. Just half an hour of exercise each morning can be just as effective at lowering your blood pressure for the remainder of the day as medication. This is according to a study…

Sources Say Facebook Wanted Financial Data For Years

Facebook may be under fire for how it handles the data on its more than two billion monthly active users, but the social media company has been trying to get its hands on financial information from the financial services firms for years, reported The Wall Street Journal. According to the report, which cites people familiar with the matter and documents reviewed by the paper, as late as 2017 Facebook urged financial firms to let them use customer data that comes from its Messenger platform for advertising and other initiatives. Several financial firms that were concerned about privacy reached agreements with…

DHS Database To Track ‘Conspiracy Theorists’ And Independent Journalists

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) will track influential independent journalists, bloggers and ‘conspiracy theorists’ through a centralized, searchable database. According to a publicly posted job listing, the DHS “Media Monitoring” initiative is seeking a contractor who can provide DHS with the ability to track over 290,000 journalists who influence online, print, broadcast, cable, radio, trade and industry publications, and social media platforms. Zerohedge.com reports: “Services shall provide media comparison tools, design and rebranding tools, communication tools, and the ability to identify top media influencers,” according to the job call, in order to help DHS agencies fulfill “a critical need to…

AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, T-Mobile Hit With FCC Complaint Over Sale of Phone Location Data

On Friday, multiple activist groups and telecommunications experts filed a complaint with the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) centering on how AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, and Verizon sold their customers’ real-time location data to third parties without those customers’ informed consent. The move comes after multiple Motherboard investigations into how telecom companies either sold their customers’ data, or allowed it to fall into the wrong hands. “The Carriers’ actions have threatened public safety, contrary to Congress’ directive that the Commission ensure communications networks promote safety of life and property. The Carriers’ improper disclosure of location information enabled stalkers, people posing as police…

Study finds that a GPS outage would cost $1 billion per day

Since becoming fully operational in 1995, Global Positioning System technology has become widely adopted in the United States and abroad. The concept of satellite-based navigation has become so essential that other world powers, including China, Russia, the European Union, India, and Japan, have all started building their own regional or global systems. Now, one of the most comprehensive studies on the subject has assessed the value of this GPS technology to the US economy and examined what effect a 30-day outage would have—whether it’s due to a severe space weather event or “nefarious activity by a bad actor.” The study…

Porn trolling mastermind Paul Hansmeier gets 14 years in prison

A federal judge in Minneapolis has sentenced Paul Hansmeier to 14 years in prison for an elaborate fraud scheme that involved uploading pornographic videos to file-sharing networks and then threatening to sue people who downloaded them. “It is almost incalculable how much your abuse of trust has harmed the administration of justice,” said Judge Joan Ericksen at a Friday sentencing hearing. We’ve been covering the antics of Hansmeier and his business partner John Steele for many years. Way back in 2012, we started reporting on a law firm called Prenda Law that was filing lawsuits against people for sharing pornographic films…

In Court, Facebook Blames Users for Destroying Their Own Right to Privacy

In April 2018, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg sat before members of both houses of Congress and told them his company respected the privacy of the roughly two billion people who use it. “Privacy” remained largely undefined throughout Zuckerberg’s televised flagellations, but he mentioned the concept more than two dozen times, including when he told the Senate’s Judiciary and Commerce committees, “We have a broader responsibility to protect people’s privacy even beyond” a consent decree from federal privacy regulators, and when he told the House Energy and Commerce Committee, “We believe that everyone around the world deserves good privacy controls.” A…

Alex Jones offers $1M reward as FBI investigates child pornography planted on his Infowars server

The FBI has informed Alex Jones someone planted child pornography on the servers for his Infowars website and on Friday the controversial radio host offered a $1 million reward for any information leading to an arrest. Federal authorities have been conducting a child pornography investigation for several weeks after they reviewed emailed threats made against Jones that contained links to child pornography websites, according to his attorney Norm Pattis. Pattis appeared on Jones’ show late Friday afternoon to discuss the incident. But before he did Jones went on a five-minute, profanity-laced rant announcing the reward for information leading to the…

Scientists Create “Deepfake” Software Allowing Anyone To Edit Anything Anyone Says On Video

Scientists at Stanford are doing their part to create what will be an inevitable dystopian nightmare. The staff at the Max Planck Institute for Informatics, Princeton University and Adobe Research have developed software that allows you to now edit and change what people are saying in videos, allowing anyone to edit anybody into saying anything, according to Observer.  The software uses machine learning and 3-D models of the target’s face to generate new footage which allows the user to change, edit and remove words that are coming out of a person’s mouth on video, simply by typing in new text.…

Fast food could cause dementia – and the damage is ‘irreversible’, scientists claim

IT’s no secret that fast food isn’t the best for our waistline, but now scientists claim it could cause dementia. Experts say that unhealthy eating habits and a lack of exercises puts people at risk of a significant decline in brain function. A team at Australian National University found people are consuming an extra 650 calories every day, compared with what we were eating 50 years ago. That’s the equivalent of a burger, fries and a soft drink. But they say that they’ve proven a clear link between eating more and brain deterioration. Prof Nicolas Cherbuin, who led the research…

F-35 jets: Chinese-owned company making parts for top-secret UK-US fighters

A Chinese-owned company is making circuit boards for the top-secret next generation F-35 warplanes flown by Britain and the United States, Sky News can reveal. Exception PCB, a printed circuit board (PCB) manufacturer in Gloucestershire, south west England, produces circuit boards that “control many of the F-35’s core capabilities”, according to publicity material produced by the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD). This includes “its engines, lighting, fuel and navigation systems”, it said. When asked about the firm’s Chinese ownership, the MoD said Exception PCB is an established manufacturer of circuit boards to the defence industry and presents “no risk” to…

Hackers That Took Down Saudi Oil Site Probing U.S. Power Grid

A group of hackers that shut down a Saudi Arabian oil and natural gas facility in 2017 is now targeting electric utilities, according to the cybersecurity company Dragos Inc. The group, Xenotime, has been probing utilities in the U.S. and Asia-Pacific regions since late 2018, Hanover, Maryland-based Dragos said in a blog post Friday. They’ve focused mostly on electronic control systems that manage the operations at industrial sites, Dragos said. U.S. officials have long warned grids are acutely vulnerable to cyber attacks. Disrupting a region’s electrical infrastructure could cause widespread chaos, triggering blackouts and crippling financial markets, transportation systems and…

65% of Rivers Studied Contain Antibiotics

In a new study that surveyed 72 rivers around the world, researchers found antibiotics in the waters of nearly two-thirds of all sites sampled. The researchers presented their results on Monday at the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry. Every year humans consume more and more antibiotics. After antibiotics pass through humans, they persist in the environment and enter the water systems where they can lead to the development of antibiotic resistant bacteria. The researchers gathered collaborators from around the world, who sampled nearby rivers: 72 rivers were tested, rivers on every continent but Antarctica. Samples were frozen and mailed…

Brooklyn New York Mosque Broadcasts Islamic Call to Prayer to 20 Block Radius…“I am in downtown Brooklyn, but I swear it’s Saudi Arabia”.

A resident of Brooklyn posted a Facebook live video documenting how the Islamic call to prayer was being broadcast to a 20 block radius by a local mosque. “I am in downtown Brooklyn, but I swear it’s Saudi Arabia, y’all hear that?” asks Derrick Gibson as the words “No God but Allah, Mohammad is his messenger” are broadcast. “What the hell disturbing the peace! You gotta love it right here in America – this not Saudi Arabia” states Gibson as the noise gets louder. The mosque in question is the Masjid-Al-Aman. A previous report from 2016 documents how locals complained…

How to Increase Testosterone: Natural Hacks That Work

From supporting a healthy libido to building muscle mass, testosterone is an important hormone that has a massive influence on men’s health. Testosterone levels (sometimes called T levels) decline with age. The effects of “low-T” are cumulative, meaning the lower they go, the more you feel the symptoms. Many men say that the more their testosterone levels decline, the older they feel. Want to know how to increase testosterone? Read on! Although some men seek out anti-aging clinics and testosterone therapy, there’s actually an array of strategies — from exercise and diet to vitamins, minerals, and hormone-boosting herbs — that…

23% of young black women now identify as bisexual

Since 1972, social scientists have studied the General Social Survey to chart the complexities of social change in the United States. The survey, which is conducted every couple years, asks respondents their attitudes on topics ranging from race relations to drug use. In 2008, the survey started including a question on sexual identity. As sociologists who study sexuality, we’ve noticed how more and more women are reporting that they’re bisexual. But in the most recent survey, one subset stood out: 23% of black women in the 18 to 34 age group identified as bisexual – a proportion that’s nearly three…

Americans are not doing well at saving for retirement — and it’s only going to get worse

Many Americans haven’t saved as much money as they need for retirement — and the gap is expected to widen dramatically in the next 30 years. The retirement savings gap — between what people have and should have — was $28 trillion in the U.S. in 2015, but by 2050, it’s expected to swell to $137 trillion, according to the World Economic Forum, a Cologny-Geneva, Switzerland-based nonprofit that researched international financial affairs. The disparity grows $3 trillion every year in the U.S. The organization calculated this gap assuming most individuals’ retirement income sources would include a combination of government-provided pensions…

1000s Of Illegals Quarantined After Exposure To Chicken Pox, Mumps

Approximately 5,200 adult migrants in US custody for illegally entering the country have been quarantined by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) after being exposed to mumps or chicken pox, according to the agency.  An ICE official told CNN on Friday that of the quarantined individuals, approximately 80% (4,200) were exposed to mumps, 800 were exposed to chicken pox, and around 100 migrants were exposed to both. They will be quarantined for 25 days.  Just because individuals are quarantined doesn’t mean they have the mumps, but they’ve at least been exposed to it. From September 2018 to June 13, 297 people in ICE custody…

Man Beaten Bloody After Grandparents Stop Him From Abducting 6-Year-Old Granddaughter

An Indiana man was left beaten and bruised after attempting to abduct a 6-year-old girl from her grandparent’s apartment. Benjamin Dillon, 37, allegedly kicked in the front door of Martin and Patricia Roth’s Lebanon, Indiana apartment in the middle of the night on June 3. The would-be kidnapper was met with resistance in the form of two grandparents unwilling to allow Dillon near their young granddaughter. “I was sound asleep in my bedroom and this guy came kicking in and said, ‘You have my daughter,’” Patricia Roth told FOX 59. “I was nervous, very nervous. I was shaking so bad.”…

Stop Using Mail Chimp: Digital marketer bans anti-vaccination content (they banned G.S. two years ago)

Mailchimp will no longer provide services to newsletters that promote what they call anti-vaccination content. The digital marketer has already removed several anti-vaccine clients from its platform. The push to block anti-vaccine information is a trend set by other tech companies and is driven by unprecedented influence from lawmakers and public health advocates on digital platforms to decrease the spread of what they perceive as health misinformation about vaccines. In a statement provided to NBC News, a Mailchimp spokesperson said: “Mailchimp has shut down a number of accounts for anti-vaccination content that violates our Terms of Use, and we’re adding…

Sinaloa cartel thugs seek asylum after border shootout, claim ‘credible fear’ of rival gangsters

Earlier this week, warring factions of the Sinaloa cartel left nearly a dozen people dead in the streets of the Mexican border town of Agua Prieta, just “half a block from the border” with Douglas, Arizona, Cochise County Sheriff Mark Dannels said. Victims of the violence, as well as several gangsters who lost the battle, are now safely in the U.S., recovering from their injuries as they apply for asylum. The sheriff told KVOA the bloody shootout that began Monday afternoon and went into Tuesday involved an internal dispute in the Sinaloa cartel. Three injured in the shootings were taken…

Unborn Babies are Being Extracted From Their Mother’s Wombs Alive to Have Their Livers Harvested

President Trump’s pro-life administration showed transformative leadership this week, prohibiting government laboratories from trafficking in aborted baby parts and intensifying the protection of human subjects for any remaining outside “research” authorized by statute. This new, exacting oversight is crucial. I speak from some personal experience, having participated in gathering the Center for Medical Progress’ undercover videos of top-level Planned Parenthood leaders, who admitted the organization’s involvement in the trade in baby body parts. These videos shocked the conscience of the American people in 2015, but the atrocity of government-funded fetal experimentation grows more horrifying the closer we look. National Institutes…

Texas Is About To Make Sex Jokes On Campus A Criminal Offense

Why is this Republican state acting like the Obama administration? Republican lawmakers seem to have a better grip than their Democratic colleagues on the inherent censorship of so-called free speech zones and viewpoint-based security fees. David French of National Review counted eight states that have passed campus free-speech bills in less than six months, most recently Texas. He has one major quibble with the new Texas law: its failure to define a phrase that dictates when students can be punished for disruptions. The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, which French used to lead, added another concern: failure to specify an enforcement mechanism, whether…

Monsanto, Bayer Struggle to Keep Up with Growing Roundup Cancer Litigation

Turmoil both in and outside courtrooms appears to be growing for Monsanto, a unit of German owner Bayer AG, as the company works to meet overlapping deadlines for appeal actions in the three Roundup cancer trials Monsanto has lost so far at the same time that the company must prepare for new trials at the end of this summer. The weight of the litigation burden was laid out by a Monsanto/Bayer attorney in a recent California Court of Appeal filing seeking more time to file a brief in Monsanto’s appeal of the first case it lost last summer. That plaintiff in that…

Russia To Ban VPN Providers That Refuse To Aid Censorship

Back in 2016 Russia introduced a new surveillance bill promising to deliver greater security to the country. Of course, as with so many similar efforts around the world the bill actually did the exact opposite — not only mandating new encryption backdoors, but also imposing harsh new data-retention requirements on ISPs and VPN providers. As a result, some VPN providers like Private Internet Access wound up leaving the country after finding their entire function eroded and having some of their servers seized. Last March Russia upped the ante, demanding that VPN providers like NordVPN, ExpressVPN, IPVanish, and HideMyAss help block…

The Trump Administration Is Becoming Strangely Anti-Gun

President Trump stands to lose voters in 2020 if his administration undermines the Second Amendment. Unfortunately, that’s exactly what’s happening. Consider the events of the last several weeks. First, Attorney General William Barr announced the creation of a working group to consider ways to enforce the Lautenberg misdemeanor gun ban. This 1996 ex post facto law was a major victory for gun control groups. It imposed a lifetime gun ban for a “crime” as minor as spanking your kid or spitting on your husband. And one of the great, unintended consequences of the ban is that it disarmed many police officers — retroactively.…

Could John Bolton soon be SACKED? Will it avert Iran war? Former CIA agent Kiriakou positive on both

Hawkish National Security Advisor John Bolton has steered the Trump administration towards multiple conflicts. However, CIA whistleblower John Kiriakou tells RT he’s learned that Bolton’s days in the White House may be numbered. Since joining the Trump administration in April of last year, Bolton has taken the hardest line possible on every geopolitical flare-up. From advocating “humanitarian intervention” in Venezuela, to briefing journalists about a plan to deploy 100,000 troops to the Middle East, to rumors of him “sabotaging” Trump’s summit with North Korea’s Kim Jong-un last year, Bolton has trumpeted escalation and confrontation as a panacea to all of…

Retail Workers Nationwide Are Forming a Coalition to Demand a Just Economy

Toys ‘R’ Us workers won a crucial severance pay victory last year after the company closed its U.S. stores. Private equity firms KKR, Bain, and Vornado had bought up the legendary toy store just a decade before, saddled the company with debt, and left the 33,000 laid-off employees without access to the millions they were owed in severance. But rather than letting private equity vultures enrich themselves on the backs of employees who’d been with the store for decades, workers fought back, taking creative actions across the country and pushing legislators and pension funds to get on board — and…

Senior center bans Pledge of Allegiance as director likens to ‘Heil Hitler’

Officials at the Mullis Community Senior Center on San Juan Island in Washington state recently banned members from saying their traditional prayer and Pledge of Allegiance before lunch, forcing them to huddle in the corner around their own flag to pay tribute to American freedom. But a subsequent crackdown to enforce the ban has reportedly resulted in members of the local American Legion arrested for trespassing with American flags, as well as reports of senior center staff roughing up elderly members who insist on reciting the pledge. Daven Holzer, commander of the American Legion Post 163, told KIRO his organization…

Pentagram readies ‘contingency plans’ for Iran amid heightened tensions

Pentagon officials are drafting a slew of “contingency plans” for the U.S. and its Middle East allies, should growing tensions between Washington and Iran escalate in the region, says acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan. U.S. national security officials are also reaching out to American allies, in a effort to gin up “an international consensus” to increase pressure on Tehran, in the wake of a pair of attacks on commercial oil vessels in the Gulf of Oman, Mr. Shanahan told reporters at the Pentagon on Friday. “When you look at the situation … 15 percent of the world’s oil flows through…

U.S. Government security keys vulnerable to hackers, for the dumbest imaginable reason

Physical security keys, like those sold by Yubico, Thetis and Kensington, are a great way to lock down your digital lives. They also tend to be wicked fast compared to the wait you have to put on while you’re waiting for a 2FA password to arrive via SMS or typing in a verification code from an app like Google Authenticator. Unless of course said security key is deeply, deeply borked. From Engadget: Yubico is recalling a line of security keys used by the U.S. government due to a firmware flaw. The company issued a security advisory today that warned of…

‘Deaths Of Despair’ In The U.S. Hit Record High – So How Bad Will Things Get When Society Starts To Completely Collapse?

According to a shocking new report from the Commonwealth Fund, the suicide rate in the United States is the highest that it has ever been before.  Sadly, the same thing can be said about the death rates from drug overdoses and alcohol.  All three death rates are at an all-time record high, and yet our society is still fairly stable at the moment.  So if we are seeing this many “deaths of despair” right now, what in the world are things going to look like when our society really begins to start crumbling?  Today, Americans have literally thousands of different…

Morgan Stanley’s Business Conditions Index Just Suffered The Biggest One Month Decline In History

We continue to get more indications that U.S. economic conditions are going to deteriorate rapidly during the second half of this year.  Yesterday, I reported on a brand new survey which found that 69 percent of U.S. CFOs believe that a recession is coming “by the end of 2020”, and today we learned that Morgan Stanley’s Business Conditions Index has fallen dramatically.  In fact, according to CNBC the sudden drop in the index was “the largest one-month decline on record”… A reading of the economy from Morgan Stanley is signaling “June gloom.” Morgan Stanley’s Business Conditions Index, which captures turning…

Woman Finds Mysterious Typewriter Made From Human Teeth

Are you looking for the perfect gift for the person who has everything … including a taste for the macabre? Then you can’t go wrong with a typewriter made from human teeth. Wait … WHAT?

Drag show at Iowa public library features kids giving drag queen dollar bills

A public library in Ames, Iowa, hosted  “family-friendly” entertainment offered by drag performers who accepted cash tips from children in attendance. In the city that is home to Iowa State University, the public library offered music and dance drag performances by amateurs and professionals. Adults and children were in the audience on April 6 to watch gyrations, lip-synching, and exotic costumes during an evening that included  “all-ages” performances that were followed by a “teens only” show featuring “sparkles, costumes, free snacks, and mingling!” According to local reports, more than 240 people attended the fourth such event organized by the library.…

Snow is continuing into June. Global warming leftists will not be happy

Trump Derangement Syndrome is reaching new levels of insanity. The Left is increasingly frustrated over all things Trump, with the next three months set to be the Democrats’ summer of discontent. From Trump’s rising poll numbers to the blatant idiocy of the “best and brightest” Democrat candidates dreaming of beating Trump in 2020. From Attorney General William Barr investigating the origins of the anti-Trump coup to the new tariffs on Mexico, essentially fulfilling Trump’s campaign promise of making Mexico pay for the wall.

Exposure to glyphosate increases risk of cancer by more than 40%

The recent legal victories of people who developed cancer following glyphosate exposure have attracted a lot of headlines, with tens of millions of dollars being awarded to individuals and many other pending lawsuits expected to have similar outcomes. Yet the maker of glyphosate-based Roundup, Monsanto, continues to insist that their products are safe and the risk is exaggerated. However, it’s going to be hard to argue with a new meta-analysis that shows just how strong the link is between exposure to glyphosate-based herbicides like Roundup and a higher risk of non-Hodgkin lymphoma. The new paper, which is a comprehensive review…

STD superbugs spreading like wildfire … One exposure and you’re infected for life

Asked to visualize what an apocalyptic end of the world might look like, few people would picture death by superbug, and yet uncontrollable, antibiotic-resistant bacteria are one of the greatest threats facing mankind. The World Health Organization warns that antimicrobial resistance (AMR) has the potential to be more deadly than cancer, with the ability to kill as many as 10 million people a year. In addition to costing the world economy upwards of $100 trillion annually, left unchecked, AMR threatens to reverse all the health gains and longer lifespans that antibiotics made possible in the 20th century. As reported by…

The baby cut from his murdered mother’s womb in Chicago died Friday after surviving for over a month, his family said. “It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of baby Yovanny Jadiel Lopez,” his family said in a statement, according to the New York Post. “Please keep his family in your thoughts [and] prayers as they go through this difficult time.” The baby was on life support and had serious brain damage.

Iranian Provocation or Deep State False Flag?

The question on everyone’s mind this morning: was yesterday’s attack on two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman an Iranian provocation or a deep state / neo-con inspired false flag? According to reports a Norwegian tanker was attacked via magnetic mine while a Japanese vessel was hit with a torpedo. The Deep State has engaged in so many false flag operations previously that the natural reaction is to assume that this is what has occurred again. From the Gulf of Tonkin to September 11th to staged chemical attacks in Syria covert forces deeply entrenched in the U.S. establishment have…

Gold is Money: Why US Trying to Nix Yellow Metal’s Use in Global Transactions

The decision by Deutsche Bank, Citigroup, and the Bank of England to withhold Venezuela’s gold was politicised, say American economic analyst Pye Ian and Turkish scholar Dr Mehmet Ozkan, suggesting that the banks had seized Caracas’ bullions on behalf of Western governments who want to “corner” Nicolas Maduro and replace him with Juan Guaido. On 4 June, Bloomberg reported that Deutsche Bank AG had confiscated 20 tonnes of Venezuelan gold as collateral citing Caracas’ failure to make interest payments on a 2016 gold swap agreement valued at $750 million. Although the agreement was due to expire in 2021 the bank closed out the contract earlier. In much…

Google Stadia Is About To Show Everyone Why Broadband Usage Caps Are Bullshit

We’ve noted for years how broadband providers have increasingly imposed arbitrary, confusing, and punitive usage caps and overage fees to cash in on the lack of competition in US broadband. Not only have industry executives admitted these limits aren’t technically necessary, they’ve increasingly been abused to hamstring competitors. AT&T, for example, doesn’t impose the limits on its broadband customers who use its streaming video service (DirecTV Now), but will impose the added charges if you use a competitor like Netflix. For more than a decade ISPs have slowly but surely imposed such limits hoping that consumers wouldn’t notice (think of…

Earth is approaching the same “meteor swarm” that may have caused an entire forest to explode in 1908

A swarm of meteors heading toward Earth could have the potential to cause a catastrophic impact, a new study from Western Ontario University says. The so-called Taurid swarm is a recurring event that some scientists believe could have played a role in the biggest Earth impact of modern times, in 1908, when a space rock slammed into Siberia with enough force to destroy an entire forest. What has become known as the Tunguska explosion of 1908 was so powerful that the blast leveled 80 million trees over an 800-square-mile area. It’s considered to be a one-in-1,000-year event, according to Western…

Church hosting 3-day ‘Make America Straight Again’ event

A Lake County church — whose preacher calls homosexuality “not a normal lifestyle” and advocates for the arrest and execution of lesbians and gays — is planning to hold a three-day “Make America Straight Again” event beginning Friday. Pastor Patrick Boyle of the Revival Baptist Church of Orlando, which is housed in a small shopping center on U.S. Highway 27 in Four Corners, wouldn’t reveal the location of the gathering because he said he doesn’t want to invite protesters. “We’re not trying to pick a fight,” Boyle said Thursday. A Facebook notice of a protest planned for Saturday against the…

Many Americans say their financial situation is worse since the Great Recession

The Great Recession has officially been over for a decade. For many Americans, there’s little reason to celebrate. Many people’s finances haven’t recovered from the recession’s blows, according to a new survey by personal finance website Bankrate.com. “There are still tens of millions who are struggling to even get back to where they were before the economy took a turn for the worse,” said Mark Hamrick, senior economic analyst at Bankrate.com. More than half of Americans who were adults amid the Great Recession said they endured some type of negative financial impact, Bankrate found. And half of those people say…

Flesh-eating plants found feasting on salamanders in North America for first time

Flesh-eating pitcher plants living in a bog in Canada have for the first time been spotted regularly feasting on salamanders.  The carnivorous plant – also known as a “turtle sock plant” – was previously believed to feed almost exclusively on spiders and small insects who fell into their bell-shaped leaves and drowned in small pools of water. When researchers found creatures like rats and frogs in pitcher plants they assumed it was an accidental one-off.  However, biologists from the University of Guelph found these plants regularly devour young spotted salamanders, which they can digest in less than two weeks.  Twenty per cent of pitcher plants…

‘The Left Has Won The Culture Wars. Now They’re Just Driving Around Shooting Survivors’

Joe Rogan and entrepreneur Naval Ravikant discussed how the left has been able to win “culture wars” by controlling social media platforms. Their discussion comes as Big Tech companies such as Twitter, Facebook and YouTube have made moves to increase censorship of users and platforms that they say are in violation of their respective rules and codes of conduct — many of whom are politically right-leaning. Some large media companies such as the New York Times and Vox argue that the act of removing users for spreading hate speech radicalizes young people. “One great tweet I saw was, ‘The left…
