UK Government Is Pushing Ahead with Extreme US Trade Deal

Liz Truss addressed an extreme free-market think tank in Washington DC last Friday. which saw campaign group Global Justice Now accusing Boris Johnson’s government of pushing ahead with an extreme US trade deal without a mandate from the public or parliament.

Last week both Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab and Trade Secretary Liz Truss were in Washington DC to talk trade with US officials. Both ministers are well-known opponents of the sort of regulations and protections that would be threatened by a US trade deal. Liz Truss spoke at a meeting of the extreme free-market Heritage Foundation and has previously held meetings with several free-market think tanks to discuss US-style deregulation.

Irish Newspaper Calls for Union between Ireland, Wales and Scotland

Writing for the newspaper, Jason O’Toole suggests that a pact of the four nations – Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales – would be similar to the Scandinavians with their Nordic Council.

He says Wales and the rest could mimic the inter-parliamentary co-operation between Sweden, Denmark, Iceland, Finland, Norway, Greenland and other smaller islands.

“There would no doubt be countless benefits if we replicated their model, such as with trade agreements and unrestricted borders, which would solve the Irish backstop,” Jason O’Toole.

“And it would collectively make us a much stronger power within the EU too.

Report Claims There Is a ‘Sexual Picture’ of Bill Clinton in Jeffrey Epstein’s Mansion

The Daily Mail reported Wednesday that convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein supposedly had a “sexual picture” of former President Bill Clinton taken within his Manhattan mansion.

“The picture depicting the former president apparently lounging on a chair in the Oval Office, wearing red heels and posing suggestively in a blue dress redolent of Monica Lewinsky was in a room off the stairway of the Upper East Side townhouse,” The Daily Mail reported. “The painting was secretly snapped inside the pedophile’s lavish $56 million home in October 2012, four years after Epstein completed his sweetheart deal for prostitution of a minor and seven years before he was accused of running a sex trafficking ring of underage girls.”

Seized Iranian tanker Grace 1 to be released despite US plea

A seized oil tanker at the center of a standoff between Britain and Iran is free to set sail, despite eleventh-hour efforts by the United States to halt the move to release it.

The Supreme Court in the British territory of Gibraltar approved the release of the Grace 1, after authorities said they no longer wished to detain it.
Gibraltar's Chief Minister said he had accepted a pledge from Iran that, were the tanker to be released, its cargo would not be taken to its suspected original destination of Syria, which would have been in contravention of EU sanctions against Riyadh.

Palestinians denounce India’s Israeli-style tactics in Kashmir

Palestinians are calling for solidarity with Kashmir following the Indian government’s move to revoke the state’s autonomy while imposing an unprecedented lockdown.

The BNC is the steering group for the boycott, divestment and sanctions campaign for Palestinian rights.

Epstein autopsy shows he may have been murdered

Editor’s note, from Shepard Ambellas: Keep in mind, when reading the following article via Zero Hedge that the corpse the mainstream media is claiming to be Jeffrey Epstein’s is actually not Epstein’s body. The MSM wants you to believe that he was somehow murdered, possibly by the Clinton’s or someone powerful who was involved with the 66-year-old sex trafficker but the reality is that Epstein is still alive.

In A Single Tweet, Donald Trump Unwittingly Showed the US How Red Flag Laws Will Be Abused

By Matt Agorist

In the days following the tragic shootings in Dayton and El Paso, politicians have been working over time to use these tragedies to take away your right to self-defense. Democrats and Republicans alike have joined forces to pass sweeping regulations that could serve as a death blow to the Second Amendment. Despite his rhetoric claiming he protects the gun rights of Americans, president Donald Trump has become a cheerleader for these rights-violating red flag laws. This week, he proved just how dangerous such laws would be—and, in typical Trump fashion, he did it with just one tweet.

During a speech in April, Trump claimed that the “left is coming for your guns,” and he’s correct. But so is the right, and so is Trump...

Epstein Autopsy Finds Evidence He May Have Been Murdered

As the public carries on with the great debate about what really happened (or didn't happen) to Jeffrey Epstein early Saturday morning in the hours before he was found dead in his cell at MCC in an apparent suicide, the Washington Post has unleashed a bombshell.

First, remember how some witnesses claimed they had heard horrifying shrieking coming from Epstein's cell in the hours before his death? Well, here's one explanation for that: An autopsy report found that Epstein had endured multiple breaks in his neck bones, deepening the mystery surrounding his death last week.

Among the bones broken in Epstein’s neck was the hyoid bone, which in men is near the Adam’s apple. These breaks can occur in those who hang themselves, particularly if they are older, according to forensics experts and studies on the subject.

But they are more common in victims of homicide by strangulation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The guy was offed because various people in power, both nationally and internationally, did not want him blabbing information about their sexual habits; their recreational pharmaceutical habits; and where they had hidden much of their wealth from whatever government of which they happened to be citizens.

And that points anyone out there with more than two brain cells to rub together, to the following, but thoroughly terrifying, conclusion; the Unhinged, Surveilled State of Amerika, has been a disfunctional banana republic, ever since President Kennedy was assassinated.

We have been given the appearance of governmental legitimacy, rather than the reality of governmental legitimacy since Kennedy was assassinated; and this stinks to high heaven.

And folks, if voting was engineered to create real change, at the highest levels of this government, it would not be allowed; that is why we have more wars; more interventions in foreign affairs; more poverty here at home, than we have ever had previously, except during the Great Depression of the early 30s.

Lone Shooters, Terrorism, and Semantics

By Jon Rappoport

This is a big one. It’s so big, in fact, that many people will want to turn their backs on it and pretend it doesn’t and couldn’t exist. But it’s real. It does exist.

No killing of innocent people can be called a “negligible statistic.” But what label do you apply when an entire government stands by and does nothing, while millions of people die?

A supposed lone shooter motivated by political ideology kills 20 people, and this is called a terrorist act. But what category do you apply when a government enables a monopoly that destroys millions of lives?...

World sharemarkets shudder, but it's too early to predict a recession

The US yield curve may have turned negative in the US, sending the US and markets around the world sharply lower, but analysts said it's too early to cry recession just yet.

The much-vaunted US yield curve is held up as a key indicator for markets everywhere.

Under normal conditions, two-year bond yields should be lower than longer-term ones, reflecting reward for tying up money for longer periods.

The US curve has steadily been flattening over the last few months. In July, the differential was a positive 28 basis points.

Corrections failure despite advice from Norway's expert Breivik team

An expert Norwegian team involved in terrorist and murderer Anders Behring Breivik's imprisonment visited New Zealand months ago to advise Corrections on how to manage the alleged Christchurch terrorist.

The visit makes the failure in vetting the alleged offender's mail doubly disappointing, Corrections Minister Kelvin Davis told the Herald.

"It is sensible that people who have experience in looking after this sort of prisoner were here to help and guide us.

"That's why I'm particularly disappointed that this situation has occurred with regard to his mail, and why we've taken steps to make sure it never reoccurs."

Corrections blunder: Second letter from accused Christchurch mosque shooter emerges

Corrections is in damage control tonight after confirmation that staff allowed two high-profile prison inmates to send three letters containing content that should have been withheld.

Two of the letters were from the accused Christchurch mosque gunman Brenton Tarrant while the third was from white supremacist Philip Arps.

This follows confirmation yesterday that Tarrant was able to send multiple letters, including one to Russia which later appeared online.

Tonight Corrections confirmed a second letter sent by Tarrant should have been withheld.

And it also confirmed Arps had wrongly been allowed to send his own letter to a media organisation.

Arps is serving a jail sentence at Christchurch Men's Prison for sharing the mosque shooting video.

'Lightweight hoax swallower': Alan Jones, Aussies slam Jacinda Ardern over climate change

Australian radio shock jock Alan Jones has lashed out at Jacinda Ardern - calling her a "complete clown" and a "lightweight Prime Minister".

"I just wonder whether Scott Morrison is going to be fully briefed to shove a sock down her throat," he said on Sydney radio station 2GB.

Jones and other Aussies earlier slammed Ardern over pointed comments aimed at Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison over climate change, claiming she had a "cargo cult mentality".

Ardern and Morrison both landed in Tuvalu for the Pacific Islands Forum, where Australia is facing pressure to take greater action on climate change.

USDA issues recall of 700 lbs. of beef and pork that may have been blended with HUMAN blood… did somebody fall into the grinder?

According to official data from the USDA, just four large firms control about half of chicken production, 66 percent of pork production, and a whopping 85 percent of beef production. This same oligarchy also control about 75 percent of soybean seeds, up from 50 percent in 2000; and a whopping 85 percent of corn seed sales, up from 25 percent in 2000.

As Natural News reported back in 2013, this incremental takeover of agriculture throughout America has been a long time coming, and continues to ratchet up with the blessing of the USDA. In time, there will be no more small farmers in the U.S., as all food production will have been consolidated into the hands of a select “elite” few.

“Is there anything safe to eat or drink?” asks one Big League Politics commenter about the dire situation that Americans face when dealing with today’s questionable food supply.

We checked and yup, it's no longer 2001. And yet you can pwn a Windows box via Notepad.exe

Software buried in Windows since the days of WinXP can be abused to take complete control of a PC with the help of good ol' Notepad and some crafty code.

On Tuesday, ace bug-hunter Tavis Ormandy, of Google Project Zero, detailed how a component of the operating system's Text Services Framework, which manages keyboard layouts and text input, could be exploited by malware or rogue logged-in users to gain System-level privileges. Such level of access would grant software nasties and miscreants total control over, and surveillance of, the computer.

The flaw, designated CVE-2019-1162, is patched in this month's Patch Tuesday release of security fixes from Microsoft. The relevant update should be installed as soon as possible.

But he said fears over practices such as washing chicken in chlorine and using genetically modified (GM) crops were not "science-based".

5 Sectors of The U.S. Economy That Are In Decline

By Steven Maxwell

As regular readers of this site are probably well aware, it often feels like we are living in parallel worlds when it comes to media coverage of just about anything. This is extremely evident in the economy.

In a game of numbers, one would think that there would be much more obvious agreement about the conclusions we can draw from economic data. Nothing could be further from the truth, as on one end we are given persistently buoyant optimism from the Wall Street stock-market crowd; and signs of imminent economic end-times on the other extreme side of the spectrum.

However, for anyone who spends even a small amount of time on Main Street, the realities tend to be much more obvious...

US military officials said the mission was to prevent Iran from attacking US targets, but added that they were also ready to launch offensive attacks if ordered.

China Prepares Its "Nuclear Option" In Trade War

Authored by Simon Watkins via OilPrice.com,

As the trade war with the U.S. continues to escalate, China has re-engaged with Iran on three key projects and is weighing the use of what both Washington and Beijing term the ‘nuclear option’, a senior oil and gas industry source who works closely with Iran’s Petroleum Ministry told OilPrice.com last week.

Having said that, and aware of the leverage that it had with Iran as one of the very few countries still willing to engage in developing its fields in the midst of increasingly vigorously-imposed sanctions, China has sought deal sweeteners from Iran, and has been given them. In order for it to reactivate its development of SP11, China will get a 17.25 percent discount for nine years on the value of all gas it recovers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One thing of which an intelligent person cannot accuse either China or Iran about, is not having a very long term, win/win economic plan for both countries.

But looking at the reality that 1 September, is just a little more than two weeks away, one has to wonder if the US government, will find itself capable of responding intelligently, or is that huge "crash and recession" the financial pundits have been trumpeting for so long, going to be the case?

Is the US government contemplating a two-front war with China and Iran, for which they would have to engage very quickly, before thinking people realized why this was happening?!?

And what "reason" will they give an ever-more conscious and evolved public, about why this is happening, and why now?!?

The short answer is, they cannot, even with the biggest false flag someone could ever conjure.

Sunscreens Release Metals and Inorganic Nutrients Into Seawater

Beachgoers are becoming increasingly aware of the potentially harmful effects UV filters from sunscreens can have on coral and other marine organisms when the protective lotions wash off their bodies into the ocean.

Now, researchers have studied how sunscreens release different compounds — trace metals and inorganic nutrients — into Mediterranean seawater, with unknown effects on marine ecology. They report their results in ACS’ journal Environmental Science & Technology.

Millions of people are hitting the beach slathered in sunscreen this summer. Some might choose “coral-safe” sunscreens that lack oxybenzone and octinoxate, the two substances most widely linked to coral reef damage. However, scientists don’t yet know what effects other trace compounds in sunscreens might have on marine ecosystems...
