‘Similar to Nazi looting’: Russian minister blasts Netherlands’ Scythian gold ruling

Russian Culture Minister Vladimir Medinsky has described a decision by a Dutch court not to return a collection of Scythian gold to Crimea as a “most dangerous precedent,” and threatened to sever all museum ties with the Netherlands.

“If this ruling comes into force, I would have no right to sanction any exhibitions in the territory of the country that creates the most dangerous precedent regarding the confiscation of cultural treasures,” Medinsky said during an interview with RIA Novosti.

The minister was reacting to a decision by a court not to return 500 Scythian gold artifacts, which Dutch museums had borrowed from Crimean collections.

Debunking Two American Myths

There are two myths which are deeply imprinted in the minds of most US Americans which are extremely dangerous and which can result in a war with Russia.

-The first myth is the myth of the US military superiority.
-The second myth is the myth about the US invulnerability.

I believe that it is therefore crucial to debunk these myths before they end up costing us millions of lives and untold suffering.

There is no more extraordinary and poignant episode in the city's history.

Rose McGowan facing arrest warrant for alleged drug possession

An arrest warrant was issued Monday for actress Rose McGowan for alleged felony possession of a controlled substance on a flight earlier this year, police said.

McGowan, who has been one of the leading voices against sexual harassment in Hollywood, faces a felony charge after police said an investigation revealed that her personal belongings left behind on a United flight back in January tested positive for narcotics.

McGowan claimed Monday in a tweet that the warrant was an attempt to “silence” her.

Las Vegas Shooting Witness, Who Described Multiple Gunmen, Found Dead

His body was found in a vacant home in the northeastern valley after a neighbor heard a man groaning inside the building and called 911. Police say Contreras was dead when they arrived at the 5800 block of East Carey Avenue, near North Nellis Boulevard.

Analysts continue to be amazed by the many links between the CIA and Stephen Paddock—and who have documented that Paddock was a CIA arms pilot delivering thousands of weapons to a Mexican drug cartel between 2006-2011 in what is now known as " Operation Fast and Furious"

According to a source in the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department:: “The LVMPD knows the motive behind the attack, but the FBI will not allow us to release the motive because it implicates the FBI in illegal arms deals and supplying arms to ISIS terrorists within U.S. borders.

JFK Files: The Truth Behind the Farce

by Clifford Shack
(henrymakow.com)

The American people have been promised the release of all the classified documents on the JFK assassination. It ain't never going to happen.

But that's ok. Just connect the dots. Those of us who have, know, that solving the whodunit aspect of the assassination is just the beginning. The real, meaty story lies in the motive. Since the assassination 54 years ago, millions of published research hours allow us to piece the story together in the context of that time.

You don't have to be a rocket scientist to understand the basics of the case. Those with a minimal degree of understanding know that the CIA was clearly behind the assassination. Most of the guys involved in planning the assassination lived blocks away from Kennedy when he lived in McClean, Virginia.

George W. Bush Receives a Character Award at West Point: Duty, Honor, Atrocity

In George W. Bush’s home state of Texas, if you are an ordinary citizen found guilty of capital murder, the mandatory sentence is either life in prison or the death penalty. If, however, you are a former president of the United States responsible for initiating two illegal wars of aggression, which killed 7,000 U.S. servicemen and at least 210,000 civilians, displaced more than 10 million people from their homes, condoned torture, initiated a global drone assassination campaign, and imprisoned people for years without substantive evidence or trial in Guantanamo Bay, the punishment evidently is to be given the Thayer Award at West Point.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Lord, please, NO! This is absoflippinglutely unbelievable, and a terrible dishonor to the award, and what it stands for, to have been awarded to the American war criminal, President Bush.

Rare Handel manuscript to be used for performance in Katikati (NZ)

A rare publication of a manuscript of the famous Messiah by composer George Frederick Handel that dates back to the 1700s has been discovered in the Bay of Plenty.

It is believed to be one of only four copies in the world.

The 233-year-old manuscript, printed from an etching on copper plate, is a reduction of the score of the Messiah for voice, harpsichord and violin. It is owned by Colin and Stephanie Smith of Tauranga.

The Western Bay Museum in Katikati will host a performance of excerpts from the 1784 Messiah manuscript by soloists from the University of Waikato in November. During the performance the manuscript will be on display for the first time in the southern hemisphere.

Mr Smith said the manuscript was in a pile of unsorted music offered as part of a house lot from the estate of a person in Christchurch some 40 years ago. He didn't sort the music until 10 or 12 years ago when he discovered the Handel manuscript about half-way down the pile.

Trump, Ghani agree U.S. can help develop Afghanistan's rare earth minerals

Hate to agree with Karl,but wars are economic,actually criminal. Somebody wants what someone else has and they figure the best way to get it is to steal it,using various nebulous reasons to motivate the cannon fodder. Like religion,nationalism,race or my favorite from Gullivers Travels;"They open their eggs from the wrong end!"

(Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump and Afghan President Ashraf Ghani on Thursday backed having companies from the United States develop Afghanistan’s reserves of rare earth minerals, despite formidable obstacles to industrial mining in the country.

The comments, at a meeting in New York, were the latest in a series in which both U.S. officials and the Afghan government have emphasized the potential strategic value of Afghanistan’s vast and largely untapped mineral reserves.

Palestinian orchestra uses 'music as resistance'

Birzeit, Occupied West Bank - On a humid summer evening in Birzeit, the atmosphere in the Naseeb Azeez Shaheen Auditorium turned raucous when it was announced that two musicians from Gaza would be performing.

The audience had barely settled by the time the Palestine Youth Orchestra (PYO) launched into the familiar, dramatic opening bars of the Star Wars main theme.

For its 2017 tour, the PYO had scheduled two concerts in Amman, Jordan, followed by two dates in the occupied West Bank, in Nablus and Birzeit.

"We try to make a point to come to Palestine because this is home," PYO manager Zeina Khoury told Al Jazeera. "We do it once every few years, when we feel it is possible, and when we have the funding to do it. We tried this year and it worked out, but not as we had planned originally."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Music as resistance; that has a lovely, peaceful ring to it! :-)

Something stinks about Charlottesville

By Russ Vaughn

Evidence is turning up from, of all places, the Southern Poverty Law Center, as well as Breitbart and others, that this character, Jason Kessler, who organized the suspicious and supposed Alt-Right demonstration in Charlottesville, Va. that blew up in everyone's face, is a cunning lefty holdover from the Occupy Wall Street movement and a former Barack Obama supporter. I smell Soros money, sabotage, and Democrat dirty tricks here.

The reporting of Kessler's background, as well as that of Charlottesville mayor and Democrat activist Mike Signer and Vice Mayor Wes Bellamy, has convinced me that Charlottesville was a Democratic Party black operation, planned, organized, and carried out to its successful conclusion, to make the media portray all these conservative whites as stupid, racist, and violent.

Michael Moore’s One-Man Play Opens to Terrible Reviews

Michael Moore, the radical liberal filmmaker who spent 8 years obsessing over George W. Bush, now has his sights set on President Trump.

Rather than make another documentary that nobody watches, Moore, apparently bitten by the drama bug, has written and produced a one-man play.

The star, of course, is Moore. The play is called “The Terms of My Surrender.” Moore has described it as a “12-step meeting for the Democratic Party,” which is fitting given that Trump mopped the floor with the party of Clinton and Obama last Election Day.

The play opened at New York City’s Belasco Theater yesterday. The reviews are already in. And the verdict is near-unanimous: Moore’s latest is a great big stinker!

Was Earth invented for souls to learn about evil because a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away 10,000 super-powered Jedi Knights couldn’t recognize evil from just two Dark Side players and lost?

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

“How do democracies get turned into dictatorships? The democracies aren’t overthrown; they’re given away... Star Wars was really about the Vietnam War.” - George Lucas, creator of Star Wars

“The (Star Wars) Empire is like America ten years from now.” - George Lucas, 1973

Adjusted for inflation, Star Wars is likely the most popular film series in history. Stories are popular because they communicate themes that resonate with the public. Creator George Lucas communicates that a powerful republic is overcome by false flag deception that devolves into the most evil dictatorial empire possible.

According to the story, 10,000 Jedi Knights were galactic guardians of virtue after a history of defeating evil. But these 10,000 super-powered beings became blind to the presence of evil, failed to recognize it at the leadership of their own government, and were defeated in orchestrated false flag ambush by just two evil actors.

The Real McCoy: AKA D.B.Cooper

Certain names in the following description are fictitious names to protect people's identities.

Fourteen year-old Peter Fanning (fictitious name) of Provo, Utah, made a surprising discovery. Lying in front of him, beside a steel culvert, was what he thought might be a parachute pack. He brought the strange object to his father who was replacing a flat tire on the family car a short distance away. The father notified the local sheriff of their find after returning home that afternoon.

It was soon learned that the Fannings had stumbled upon one of the four parachutes furnished to a lone gunman who had commandeered a passenger plane on April 7, 1972, in the Colorado skies.

Is AG Sessions unwittingly working for the Bush family?

This question has to be asked in light of Jeff Sessions actions and inactions as U.S. Attorney General

SOTN Editor’s Note:
The incisive Facebook comment concerning Jeff Sessions posted below was recently sent to SOTN unsolicited. At first we disregarded it. But then we carefully looked at the Attorney General’s 6 month progress report since his confirmation on February 8th.

Because of the unmitigated disaster that Jeff Sessions has turned out to be as AG, one wonders whether he was actually sent into the Trump camp early on as a Bush family plant.

Climbing on board the Trump train as Sessions did so early in the campaign season never made any sense; just as Chris Christie and Rudy Giuliani never really made any sense being anywhere close to Trump, except as spies.

How to collect funds from Spotify’s $43.5 million dollar class action settlement

The class action lawsuit opened against Spotify by Melissa Ferrick and David Lowery has been settled. Months prior, Ferrick and Lowery brought Ferrick v. Spotify USA Inc. to the court system, suing the popular music streaming service for copyright infringement, alleging that Spotify made some music available on its platform without the license to do so. Those artists whose compositions were shared via Spotify consequently did not receive royalties for their music’s use, but may now collect compensation from the $43.45-million-dollar class action settlement.

Those eligible to receive a payout from the settlement fund include those who own copyrights on compositions that were made available by Spotify for stream/download without a license during the class period, December 28, 2012-June 29, 2017. Artists whose compositions were shared via Spotify during the period must have had a certificate of registration issued or applied for the appertaining compositions during the class period.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Claire just received no less than 9 notifications that her copyrighted works were made available on Spotify! On one hand she is flattered, but on the other hand, she is angry that we were not notified that Spotify was using her works so that we could help promote them, and, of course, that Spotify did not obtain our permission in the first place!

German techno band faces charges for Crimea concert: Ukraine envoy

German techno band Scooter faces significant legal consequences for performing at a festival in the Crimea region of Ukraine that was annexed by Russia in 2014, the Ukrainian ambassador to Germany said an interview published Saturday.

Andrij Melnyk, Ukraine's envoy to Germany, told the Funke Mediengruppe newspaper chain that the band's decision to enter the Crimea region "illegally" on Thursday was "not only a scandal, but also a crime with serious legal consequences."

Melnyk said Ukrainian prosecutors had already begun legal proceedings against the band.

"This isn't some minor infraction, but a serious crime that will be punished," he told the newspaper group.

The band was due to appear at the ZBFest rock festival in Balaklava on Friday.

Scooter front man H.P. Baxxter told German media last month the band was going to Crimea to perform music, not engage in politics.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Andrij Melnyk, a word (or two), please.

First, let us politely strip away your completely idiotic, lying pretext that Russia allegedly "annexed" Ukraine.

Ukraine was regime changed by US/IMF/Soros agents in 2014, when the non-Eurocentric, duly elected Yanukovich got thrown under a bus, and Poroshenko got "anointed" as Ukraine's president, in an election more crooked than is a dog's hind leg.

President Obama publicly admitted to US culpability in this process:

Obama admits that the US brokered a deal in support of regime change in Ukraine

It's not Russia that's pushed Ukraine to the brink of war

Also, unless you have a really lousy case of SMD (Selective Memory Disorder), you will recall the reality about Victoria Nuland's nearly bragging about having spent 5 billion dollars to create regime change in Kiev in a presentation:

Victoria Nuland's Admits Washington Has Spent $5 Billion to "Subvert Ukraine"

Those, sir, are the realities of the situation; there was no annexation of Crimea by Russia; the Crimeans held a referendum of their people ( an exercise in peaceful self-determination, which as a signatory to the UN Charter, Ukraine defends, right?!?) as to whether Crimeans wanted to stay with Ukraine, post-coup, or petition the Russian Federation to join it. In an overwhelming majority vote, the Crimeans voted to petition the Russian Federation to become a member, and the Russian Federation accepted their petition.

Now, as to these German nationals performing in Crimea; if, in fact, they are German citizens, the law of Ukraine holds absolutely no sway in Germany, so there is utterly no legal foundation for a prosecution against them.

IF Germany decides to prosecute them, due to their going along with the "US Party Line" which supports the lie of Russian annexation, that is well within Germany's purview.

Now I am no fan of techno pop; but as a sister musician operating in a profoundly different musical paradigm (I'm a published Christian fine arts composer), art needs to be free, and be performed wherever there is welcomed, and not politicized.

Sir, in pursuing this lawsuit, you are appearing to the world, to be behaving as the nether end of a jaysap, and I would strongly encourage you to drop this lawsuit, and right now, for the sake or your and Ukraine's international reputation.

Art is dangerous to authorities

In 1891, Oscar Wilde wrote: “Art is individualism, and individualism is a disturbing and disintegrating force. There lies its immense value. For what it seeks is to disturb monotony of type, slavery of custom, tyranny of habit, and the reduction of man to the level of a machine.”

Authority wants limited perception.

It wants “things as they are” to rule the day.

It wants the fire of creative exploration to go out and turn to ashes.

Art is dangerous. It makes people move out of standard-response channels.

They don’t see what they’re supposed to see anymore.

That’s why colleges teach brain-deadening courses in art history. Every attempt is made to codify the students’ reactions.

I’m not just talking about political art. I mean ANYTHING that truly comes out of reliance on imagination.

I like this guy. No accident about it!

Harold Watson “Trey” Gowdy III is a member of the Tea Party movement and the Republican Party and serves as a congressman from South Carolina. He is also the chairman of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. During the meeting with the ONDCP this week, Gowdy asked why marijuana was a schedule I drug.

While Gowdy didn’t go so far as to call for the legalization of cannabis — because it would likely mean political suicide among his staunchly conservative base — his line of questioning set off a conversation that would eventually expose the war on drugs.

The US Empire, the CIA, and the NGOs

The CIA recruited the Muslim Brotherhood to fight a proxy war against the Soviet Union in Afghanistan, which led to the withdrawal of the Soviets from the Hindu Kush. Since then, the CIA used the mercenaries to fight more proxy wars in the Balkans, Chechnya, and Azerbaijan. Due to the wars of aggression against Iraq, Libya, Syria and Yemen the US and its vassal states created sectarian violence that led to civil wars. Right now, the CIA and the Muslim Brotherhood are present in the form of ISIS in Syria and Iraq.

Gilad Atzmon on politics in music, Roger Waters, Palestine and humanitarianism

Jazz musician, author and philosopher Gilad Atzmon spoke with The Duran about Roger Waters verses the Israel lobby, the place of politics in music, freedom versus dogma and Palestinian freedom in the 21st century.

Recently, Pink Floyd co-founder Roger Waters has been in the news, not for his North America musical tour but for his politics. As an outspoken supporter of Palestine, he has come up against the Israel lobby in many western countries.

Recently, various pro-Israel activists have financed the making of a film against Waters called Wish You Weren’t Here,a mockery of the Pink Floyd album and song Wish You Were Here.

Even among politically minded musicians, few talk about the Israel/Palestine issue. I recently spoke with acclaimed jazz musician, philosopher, social commentator and pro-Palestine thinker Gilad Atzmon about his reaction to the latest attempt to smear Roger Waters over his advocacy of Palestinian justice.

No One Would Buy My Photos, So Here They Are For Free: Mosul 2017

My name is Kainoa Little, and I am a Shoreline, Washington-based conflict photographer. I was in Mosul in April and May 2017, documenting Iraqi forces as they fought Islamic State militants to liberate the city.

I tried and failed to find newspapers and wire services who would purchase my photos. But the soldiers had fed me and given me a seat in their Humvees, and the refugees had tolerated my presence on some of the worst days of their lives. They very rightly expected that I would tell their story.

The worst uncertainty for me as a freelancer in conflict isn’t that I won’t be able to pay my rent; it’s that no one will see the story, and then I will have failed to give a voice to the voiceless. So I have tried to share them where I can, and hopefully people can imagine some of the human tragedy and triumph playing out in Mosul.

Painters like Claude Monet and Pablo Picasso transformed art by inventing new styles such as impressionism and cubism. Could a machine do the same? Perhaps, now that the public has given the thumbs up to unconventional images created by an artificial intelligence.

Did John Wayne die of cancer caused by a radioactive movie set?

I'm horrified to have to report this, John, but your girlfriend's claim is only slightly exaggerated. Of the 220 persons who worked on The Conqueror on location in Utah in 1955, 91 had contracted cancer as of the early 1980s and 46 died of it, including stars John Wayne, Susan Hayward, and Agnes Moorehead, and director Dick Powell. Experts say under ordinary circumstances only 30 people out of a group of that size should have gotten cancer. The cause? No one can say for sure, but many attribute the cancers to radioactive fallout from U.S. atom bomb tests in nearby Nevada. The whole ghastly story is told in The Hollywood Hall of Shame by Harry and Michael Medved. But let's start at the beginning.

What Are the Best Cannabis Strains for Pain?

Personally recommend Blackberry Kush and Afghan landrace Mazar I Sharif.

One of the most common applications for medical marijuana is pain, whether it's inflammation, headaches, neuropathic pain, muscle soreness, spinal injury, fibromyalgia, or cramps. Patients have seen varying degrees of success with cannabis in treating various pain-related ailments, depending on the type of pain, the intensity, and the individual's own physiology.

Try Not To Giggle Reading About Florida's Butt Graffiti Problem

You could call it a derrière dilemma, a keister caper, or even a rump riddle. Ah, yes. It is sixth-grade humor at its finest with endless comical posterior possibilities.
At the end of the day, however, what’s now being called “butt graffiti” is ultimately illegal.
The design is popping up all over the place in St. Petersburg, in places near the old YMCA and the Morean Arts Center.

Why Big Marijuana Will Survive Jeff Sessions

I have had Crohn's disease for over 40 years. It affects more than just your digestive system. It causes eye problems.liver,kidney and pancreatic problems. It causes skin problems like Pyoderma Gangreneosum and Erythema Nodosum. With P.G you get big ulcers on your skin that smell bad and really hurt. With E.N.the capillaries under your skin rupture and you leak blood through your skin. The same happens in the whites of your eyes and you look like Dracula. It is a tough disease to have! Cannabis and other natural remedies,herbs ,vitamins and especially amino acids are what I use. Crohn's causes an imbalance in serotonin and dopamine. Cannabis lowers serotonin and raises dopamine. It makes my life bearable.
Why do we have to ask permission to treat our own illnesses as we see fit?

Trump NEA Grants $20K for Lesbian Illegal Alien Musical

U.S. taxpayers are on the hook for $20,000 in funding to a San Francisco musical about a criminal illegal alien lesbian with mental health issues who is in love with an immigration agent. The funding for the musical, “Walls,” comes from the Trump Administration’s National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) which is still under the leadership of Obama holdover, Chairman Jane Chu.

George Orwell’s son says his father’s ‘1984’ was ‘prescient’

The audience at the opening night on Broadway of a new stage adaptation of George Orwell’s dystopian fantasy “1984” will include a special guest — the author’s son.

Richard Blair, whose father finished the book in 1949 when he was a young boy, was in New York on Thursday to cheer on the cast amid a huge jump in interest of his father’s nightmarish vison of the future.

“His novel ‘1984’ was his take on what could possibly happen — not necessarily will happen — but, as it turned out, it was really quite prescient,” said Blair. “Crickey, it’s still fresh today as it was then.”

FEARS OF A GRENFELL TOWER COVER-UP AS LABOUR MP WHO LOST ARTIST FRIEND URGES POLICE TO CARRY OUT RAIDS TO STOP FIRMS AND COUNCILS FROM DESTROYING EVIDENCE

Fears of a Grenfell Tower cover-up has led to calls for raids to take place on businesses and authorities at the centre of the investigation into the deadly inferno.

The Prime Minister and the Metropolitan Police have been urged to seize any potentially-incriminating evidence before it can be destroyed.
Council chiefs and building firms could face manslaughter charges over the disaster, in which at least 58 have been killed, a former Director of Public Prosecutions has said.

And Labour MP David Lammy demanded urgent action, claiming contractors were expunging details of their work on the tower from their websites.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That the pattern of decision making which lead to this inferno could possibly be covered up in such a way as to prevent getting to the bottom of what really happened here, is an horrific insult to those who died as a result of this blaze, and their families.

The Crusades When Christianity Pushed Back after Four Centuries of Being Attacked: Charles "The Hammer" Martel

The year is 732 A.D., and Europe is under assault. Islam, born a mere 110 years earlier, is already in its adolescence, and the Muslim Moors are on the march.

Growing in leaps and bounds, the Caliphate, as the Islamic realm is known, has thus far subdued much of Christendom, conquering the old Christian lands of the Mideast and North Africa in short order. Syria and Iraq fell in 636; Palestine in 638; and Egypt, which was not even an Arab land, fell in 642. North Africa, also not Arab, was under Muslim control by 709.

The only thing the Frankish and Burgundian European forces have going for them is their leader, Charles of Herstal, grandfather of Charlemagne. He is a brilliant military tactician who, after losing his very first battle, is enjoying an unbroken 16-year streak of victories.

10 Best Strains To Treat PTSD This Veteran’s Day

Men and women of service are brave, noble, and have risked all that they have in honor of something much larger than themselves. These actions deserve the most sincere gratitude. Yet, all too often, veterans return to an environment that cannot support their needs. Those with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) know first-hand the challenges that come with trying medication after medication with no relief. Thankfully, there’s medical cannabis. In honor of Veteran’s Day, here are 10 top strains for PTSD.

Earlier in the day, Park and Russia's Deputy Culture Minister Alexander Zhuravsky signed a memorandum of understanding and cooperation, according to which the two countries would hold a number of cultural festivals from 2017 to 2020.

Radical? Zionist Book Burner More Likely

For some days now I’ve been feeling a little bored because my new book Being in Time didn’t seem to be attracting any real opposition. My arch-enemy Alan Dershowitz declined calls to disrupt my USA tour which, in fact, was a great success and all-in-all, the launch of the book seemed to be going smoothly, on the verge of going snooze-ly.

But seemingly everything changed.

Yesterday, on my way to the event in Cluny, Newcastle I learned that the music venue had capitulated to the Zionist lobby's pressure. Cluny’s manager, Joel Thomson, told me over the phone that they had received two emails and had decided to withdraw. It took a local friend around five minutes to trace a new location. However, when I arrived at The Cluny around 6.30 PM (to divert the traffic to the new location), I ran into some appalling behaviour by staff members and the owner.

Trump: Dancing with Wolves on the Titanic

Robert Fisk put it best: “Trump Is About To Really Mess Up In The Middle East”. Following his fantastically stupid decision to attack the Syrian military with cruise missiles, Trump or, should I say, the people who make decisions for him, probably realized that it was “game over” for any US policy in the Middle-East so they did the only thing that they could do: they ran towards those few who were actually happy with this aggression against Syria: the Saudis and the Israelis. Needless to say, with these two “allies,” what currently passes for some type of “US foreign policy” in the Middle-East will only go from bad to worse.

How much marijuana has been grown in Washington? Over 150,000 pounds of useable marijuana produced in fiscal year 2017 under Washington’s Legal System. Washington’s legal marijuana market is booming, which is resulting in a lot of cannabis being grown.

According to the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board, there has been 363,268 pounds (lbs) of marijuana harvested in fiscal year (FY) 2017, which began on July 1, 2016 and ends on June 30. Of this harvested marijuana, 155,494 lbs is considered “useable”, which is what is sold at marijuana retail outlets.

Giant Plants of Southern Oregon

Jack would have forgot about the beanstalk if he was growing some of these seeds!

Oregon medical marijuana growers are allowed up to six plants per patient, and many patients grow for themselves. So if you’re an experienced and ambitious grower, but you’re only allowed half a dozen plants, what do you do? You grow them really, really big.

Under the Radar

The Pacific Northwest grows some of the world’s best marijuana, and legalization in Washington and Oregon has legitimized this rapidly expanding industry. Huge green crosses now advertise cannabis businesses along I-5, and the region’s green rush has been augmented by legalization in California, creating a sold green bloc of legal West Coast states. Competition has lowered prices, but the demand remains high, especially for organic, pesticide-free, medical-grade cannabis.

He was seldom recognized in uniform, particularly after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, when safety protocols were introduced to limit access to cockpits, he said.

Cannabis & Traumatic Brain Injury

A Promising Approach

A new and promising therapeutic approach points to the positive effects of phytocannabinoids and cannabimimetic drugs, isolated from the Cannabis sativa plant. [5] Research shows that, “Cannabinoids of all classes have the ability to protect neurons from a variety of insults that are believed to underlie delayed neuronal death after traumatic brain injury (TBI), including excitotoxicity, calcium influx, free radical formation, and neuroinflammation.”[6]

US Navy runs into snags with aircraft carrier's electric plane-slingshot

Trump has been doing his homework!

The US Navy is having difficulties with its latest aircraft carrier's Electromagnetic Aircraft Launching System (EMALS) – the same system which the UK mooted fitting to its new Queen Elizabeth-class carriers.

The US Department of Operational Test and Evaluation (DOTE) revealed yesterday, in its end-of-year report [PDF] for financial year 2016, that the EMALS fitted to the new nuclear-powered carrier USS Gerald R. Ford put "excessive airframe stress" on aircraft being launched.

This stress "will preclude the Navy from conducting normal operations of the F/A-18A-F and EA-18G from CVN 78", according to DOTES, which said the problem had first been noticed in 2014.

In addition, EMALS could not "readily" be electrically isolated for maintenance, which DOTE warned "will preclude some types of EMALS and AAG (Advanced Arresting Gear) maintenance during flight operations", decreasing their operational availability.

The unraveling of civil society. From Johnny Carson to Stephen Colbert

Colbert's foul mouthed monologue, more than anything, exemplified a trend in American life that one could identify without any exaggeration as the unraveling of civil society. To anyone -- liberal or conservative -- who grew up watching Johnny Carson on late-night TV, the descent from Carson to Colbert is as breathtaking as it is heartbreaking.

The Carson Show - a place where all Americans could laugh together every night.

And, of course, it is inconceivable that he would have used the language Colbert used. Kids could watch "The Tonight Show" because he -- and we -- lived in a pre-left age, when grown-ups thought they had a responsibility to be good models to young people -- in other words, a responsibility to be adults. But the left has never been comfortable with growing up.

Hamilton musical resonates with revolution, leadership with teamwork; hits chords of dangers as subjugated work animals harmonizing with our world of the present

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

I saw the record-breaking musical Hamilton in San Francisco. Art becomes popular when it resonates with underlying truths the public see, hear, and feel. Let’s consider three of Hamilton’s themes connected to our world of the present:

Revolution is in the air today, just as during the time of the play.
Leadership with teamwork is the only path to build a brighter future.
Revolution is a required response when promised rights are replaced with subjugation as work animals to psychopathic parasites.

BEXALERT!: Iran fake news prepares the ground for assassination

This article is a not so subtle attempt to frame up Iran for something they didn't do in anticipation of an attack on Iran. It has the stinky smell of Israel on it!

The IRGC are the main backers of Bashar al-Assad's bloody civil war in Syria, the brutal Shi'ia militias in Iraq, the Houthi rebels in Yemen and the terrorist Hezbollah in Lebanon. There is talk in Washington that the United States may shortly designate the IRGC as an international terrorist organization. Meddling in the internal affairs of other countries and particularly exporting terrorism and fundamentalism, represents a strategic pillar for Tehran's survival and endurance.

TEL AVIV – In a radio interview last night, Jackie Mason, the famous standup comic who dubs himself “The Ultimate Jew,” declared that President Donald Trump is “even more Jewish than me.”

Jackie is still funny!

Mason quipped:

He’s even more Jewish than me. I thought I was an Orthodox Jew but he is much more Orthodox than me because every time he talks it’s all about how he could help Jews and protect Jews. And every child he has is looking for someone to marry that’s a Jew.

They go to shul [synagogue] even when there’s no reason for it. He creates Jewish holidays that don’t even exist. His son-in-law is not only Jewish but he’s Orthodox. And his daughter became even more Orthodox than the husband. So, he can’t even go with them to a restaurant because as soon as they sit down they complain that it is not Kosher enough.

“I think he forgot he’s a gentile altogether,” Mason said of Trump. “Pretty soon he’ll be wearing that yalmukah (kippah) every time he goes to the White House.”

When 'Sunshine' Ruled on the Korean Peninsula

Before South Korea’s conservative presidents severed ties with North Korea from 2008, their liberal predecessors Kim Dae-jung and Roh Moo-hyun promoted peaceful engagement and rapprochement, an approach called the “sunshine policy.”

The name stemmed from an ancient Greek fable where the wind and the sun competed to remove a man’s cloak. No matter how strongly the wind blew, the man only wrapped his cloak more tightly to keep warm. But when the sun shone, the warmth made him take his cloak off. The wind symbolized unsuccessful coercive policies toward North Korea and the sun stood for an approach able to persuade North Korea to take off its anachronistic and uncomfortable cloak, changing at last.

10 Ways To Stop Being A Slave And Bring Down The Pyramids Of Control

The latest whistleblower is David Steele, a 20-year Marine Corps intelligence officer, and the second-highest-ranking civilian in the U.S. Marine Corps Intelligence. He is a former CIA clandestine services case officer, and this is what he had to say:

“Most terrorists are false flag terrorists, or are created by our own security services. In the United States, every single terrorist incident we have had has been a false flag, or has been an informant pushed on by the FBI. In fact, we now have citizens taking out restraining orders against FBI informants that are trying to incite terrorism. We’ve become a lunatic asylum.”

0:12
The FBI is responsible for more terrorism plots in the United States than any other organization. More than al Qaeda, more than al Shabaab, more than the Islamic State, more than all of them combined.

0:26
This isn't likely how you think about the FBI. You probably think of FBI agents gunning down bad guys like John Dillinger, or arresting corrupt politicians.

0:36
After the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the FBI became less concerned with gangsters and crooked elected officials. The new target became terrorists, and the pursuit of terrorists has consumed the FBI.

Every year, the Bureau spends 3.3 billion dollars on domestic counterterrorism activities. Compare than to just 2.6 billion dollars combined for organized crime, financial fraud, public corruption and all other types of traditional criminal activity.

Secret Pentagon Report Reveals US "Created" ISIS As A "Tool" To Overthrow Syria's President Assad

From the first sudden, and quite dramatic, appearance of the fanatical Islamic group known as ISIS which was largely unheard of until a year ago, on the world's stage and which promptly replaced the worn out and tired al Qaeda as the world's terrorist bogeyman, we suggested that the "straight to beheading YouTube clip" purpose behind the Saudi Arabia-funded Islamic State was a simple one: use the Jihadists as the vehicle of choice to achieve a political goal: depose of Syria's president Assad, who for years has stood in the way of a critical Qatari natural gas pipeline, one which could dethrone Russia as Europe's dominant - and belligerent - source of energy, reaching an interim climax with the unsuccessful Mediterranean Sea military build up of 2013, which nearly resulted in quasi-world war.

The narrative and the plotline were so transparent, even Russia saw right through them. Recall from September of last year:

Alex Jones 'forgot what grade his kids were in during a custody trial deposition because he'd eaten a big bowl of CHILI for lunch,' court hears

Alex has always been 90% show biz,which is why he makes the bucks.I don't know how anyone could take his antics as anything but.

Claim about Jones' chili amnesia was made by his ex-wife's lawyers Wednesday
She wants custody of their three kids, aged 9-14, whom he's had since 2015
They also played videos of him stripping down to his shorts on his Infowars show
His lawyers said the video was 'satire' and not representative of his parenting
Jones was also accused of taking off his clothes in therapy sessions

He also accused Jones of being diagnosed with narcissism and paranoia - and played a video clip of Jones disrobing down to his shorts while on camera as 'proof'.

In the clip Jones said he wanted to show the effects of a 'vitality-increasing' formula sold on the Infowars website, as well as to reference FBI 'snooping' on private communications.

There Will Be Blood: Left Prepares For War After Berkeley Beat Down: “Combat Training, Better Equipment, Guns…”

Can you say Martial Law? Certain people would love to see blood on the streets.

Last week Trump supporters and leftist social justice warriors met on the political field of battle in Berkeley, California. Words were exchanged, as were punches. And while an alt-right leader was punched in the face, by all accounts even the social justice warriors admit that they got a major beat-down.

This prompted a reddit discussion among the left’s tolerant resistance movement, with many asking how they can more effectively go to war against anyone who disagrees with their social, political, and economic views.

In short, as predicted, they are turning to militancy and mob action by mobilizing individuals and groups to attend combat training seminars, acquiring better equipment like baseball bats and helmets, and of course, if things really go bad… guns.

How to bring down the elephant in the room

The reason why I decided to tackle this issue today is that the forces who broke Trump in less than a month are also the very same forces who have forced him into a political 180: the Neocons and the US deep state. However, I think that these two concepts can be fused into on I would call the “Ziocons”: basically Zionists plus some rabid Anglo imperialists à la Cheney or McCain. These are the folks who control the US corporate media, Hollywood, Congress, most of academia, etc. These are the folks who organized a ferocious assault on the “nationalist” or “patriotic” wing of Trump supporters and ousted Flynn and Bannon and these are the folks who basically staged a color revolution against Trump. There is some pretty good evidence that the person in charge of this quiet coup is Jared Kushner, a rabid Zionist. Maybe. Maybe not.

OLD WEST LEGENDS Charles Goodnight - Blazing the Cattle Trails

Co-founder of the Goodnight-Loving Trail, Charles Goodnight was born in Mocoupin County, Illinois on March 5, 1836. Charles moved with his family to Waco, Texas in 1846 when he was ten years old. By the time he was twenty he was working as a cowboy and served with the local militia in the many fights against Comanche raiders. In 1857, he joined the Texas Rangers, where he continued to fight in the Indian Wars and served as an Indian scout. Later, when the Civil War began, he again served as a scout.

After the war, Goodnight joined up with Oliver Loving to move cattle from Fort Belknap, Texas to Fort Sumner, New Mexico, in what became known as the Goodnight-Loving Trail.
