Unspun News for the 28th of December, 2014

By transients.info's contributing news service, Unspun

WORLD
“Egypt has banned the Hollywood biblical epic movie ‘Exodus: Gods and Kings’ citing historical inaccuracies, a day after Morocco made a similar decision.”  “Egyptian culture minister Gaber Asfour said Ridley Scott's blockbuster was rife with mistakes, including an apparent claim that "Moses and the Jews built the pyramids".  Such  trash goes WAY beyond simple ignorance - so what is the purpose of such disinfo?  And for what purpose?

VERY interesting report - “China Steps In as World's New Bank“. “Beijing's move to bail out Russia, on top of its recent aid for Venezuela and Argentina, signals the death of the post-war Bretton Woods world. It’s also marks the beginning of the end for America's linchpin role in the global economy and Japan's influence in Asia.”

“Since the anti-war protests on Vietnam, the U.S. government has made “perception management” of the American people a high priority, feeding them a steady diet of propaganda about foreign crises, even getting “peace groups” to buy into “pro-democracy” wars”.  Yes Virginia - your perception IS being managed. Time to pluck up courage and look at reality?

A rather mind-blowing read about a different reality - Andre Vltchek, with a view of the history of the ‘West” that is challenging - and refreshing.  “I am not afraid to write this. Are you scared to read it? I don’t think so.”   Well?

UNDER-REPORTED
“Amnesty International has found that “the already desperate situation in eastern Ukraine is being made even worse by” so-called ‘volunteer’ or mercenary forces for the Ukrainian Government, which are blocking the supply of food to residents in that region, and trying to starve them to death.”
“Security experts are claiming that, despite official rhetoric, North Korea was likely not behind the Sony hack that spurred patriotic zeal and widespread rallying around the Christmas Day release of the comedy film The Interview.“  Not a surprise.

ACLU Calls Out NSA's Christmas Eve Document Dump;  Reports on compliance violations were published 'when basically no one would be paying attention to the internet or in the mood to think about unchecked government snooping for at least the next 30 hours.'”

PEPE ESCOBAR - “There's no real "government" in Kiev; the US ambassador is in charge. An anti-Russia doctrine has been hatched in Washington to foment war in Europe - and European politicians are its collaborators. Washington wants a war in Europe because it is losing the competition with China.”  Then he builds on that...

NUCLEAR
“‘Ukrainian’ hackers claim Zaporizhzhya Nuclear plant accident way worse than reported - allege top-level cover-up, publish documents”  A second Chernobyl, in Ukraine?  Not confirmed (of course) but credible ….

EARTH
M5.5 @ 33km, S. of Panama.

“Four flamingos - all in different locations - got into severe difficulties in Siberia this week after apparently flying north instead of south.”  Compass problems guys?

“I know this is difficult for some news and governmental organizations to understand but it just happens to be a fact on our planet that ice grows faster in the cold and melts with warmer temperatures. Yet the United States government, the United Nations and many media organizations are still trying to convince the public that we live in a warming world. Most hard data and the experience of people from around the world tell us something different.”  Yeah - we noticed!

US - Chicago - “… meteorologists say the city is on track to have one of the gloomiest Decembers in its history.  There has been no direct sunshine recorded in Chicago for 15 days this month…”

“The real deniers are people who think our climate was and should remain static and unchanging.” – Paul Driessen and Chris Skates (Important article! Please read.)”

“In their seminal paper on the Vostok Ice Core, Petit et al (1999) [1] note that CO2 lags temperature during the onset of glaciations by several thousand years but offer no explanation.” Bottom line:-  “It is therefore totally invalid to use this relationship as evidence for CO2 forcing of climate, especially since during the onset of glaciations, there is no correlation at all.”  Technical, but worth the read.

“PM under fire as 118,000 flee worst Malaysia floods in decades“

US - “A series of storms will bring the risk of flooding from Louisiana to Alabama this weekend, while rain may lead to travel delays in a large part of the South and spotty rain and snow may reach the Northeast.“

UNCLASSIFIED
Dunno about you, but this is 10 year old new information to me.  I find it staggering - but sadly credible.  “Ten Years Ago: December 26, 2004: Indian Ocean Tsunami. Why did the Information Not Get Out? Was There a Hidden Agenda?”

ALTERNATIVE
“If one chooses to dive into the topic of Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) and the extraterrestrial hypothesis, they would no doubt be overwhelmed by all of the credible evidence that’s now available in the public domain pointing to the fact that; not only are we not alone, but planet Earth has been visited and is being visited by intelligently controlled extraterrestrial spacecraft.”  Fact.  Deal with it.

PREDICTION / FORECASTS

ASTRONOMIC
“Sunspot AR2249 poses a threat for M-class solar flares.” (But it’s about to go round the bend)

“The Universe is said to have begun with a bang, which then became overblown.“  BUT - “a theory built on questionable assumptions should never be the basis for new theories.”

HEALTH
“Phthalates and BPA Linked to IQ Reductions in Children, but FDA Reasserts the Chemical’s Safety”

“44 reasons to believe cell-phones cause cancer”  Even if 43 of those reasons are wrong (which they are NOT!) - it is still time to take responsibility for yourself - and probably for your kids too.

“Function of the Vagus Nerve“  More here than you ever thought you’d know!!

GENERAL / USEFUL
“The World Hobbit Project;  Welcome to our website. We are a team of researchers from 46 countries, right across the world. We are hoping to gather as many survey responses as possible from people who have seen The Hobbit films – whatever they thought of the films ....” There’s something about Middle Earth, Hobbits etc etc that really REALLY resonates with a HUGE number of people, across every boundary.  I wonder why?  Me?  Definitely Elf inclined!
