Unspun News for the 13th of February, 2015

By transients.info's contributing news service, Unspun

WORLD
“President Barack Obama has said the reality of “American leadership” at times entails “twisting the arms” of states which “don’t do what we need them to do,” and that the US relied on its military strength and other leverage to achieve its goals.“  OK - any further questions?

This is appalling, in my book. “Tony Abbott labels Human Rights Commission report into children in detention 'blatantly partisan politicised exercise'”  Pol Pot and Idi Amin would LOVE this critter.  “(….) the HRC found there were 233 assaults in detention involving children, 33 incidents of reported sexual assault, with the majority involving children, and 128 children who harmed themselves. Some 330 children remain in indefinite detention and more than 167 babies have been born in detention within the last two years.”

“With the U.S. sidelined, diplomacy led by France and Germany allows Russia and Ukraine to make new progress towards political settlement“  Now watch the US stay sidelined ……….

“Russian Aggression”: The Big Lie Blasted Worldwide Ad Nauseam”  You probably noticed.

“The increased spending would add $38 billion for defense programs to hike the military budget up to the record high $561 billion. What poses a threat to the United States? Who is Obama going to fight during the last year of his presidency before he leaves in 2016?”

“John Cantlie’s ISIS propaganda ‘travel’ video through the bustling city of Mosul emerged on the 3rd of January this year (above). John Cantlie was in line to be beheaded – and now the freelance journalist is ‘freelancing‘ for ISIS in slick and professionally produced ‘travel’ videos. (…) So who the hell is orchestrating all this?“

UNDER-REPORTED
STEPHEN LENDMAN - interview in ‘Sputnik’.  “I'm 80 years old. I was never scared throughout the Cold War years. I'm very scared now,” he stated.”

US - "I see an understanding, a recognition in the resolution with regards to ISIS attacks on Muslims, on Christians and others, and I didn't see a reference to Jews," Zeldin told CNN in an interview….  Very simple - ISIS (so far) has attacked almost everyone else except Jews.  I think that that Jewish senator boobed …

“The Federal Government has decided that from 2016 teaching students will need to pass a national literacy and numeracy test before being allowed to graduate.“  Gosh, what a good idea - literate teachers!!!!!!

“The money creation racket is in essence so simple in method and yet so vaste in effect it is almost impossible for the human mind to contemplate that mankind could be deceived with such devastating impact over so many generations.”  EXCELLENT article….

“Washington’s potential willingness to arm the Ukrainian military has elicited an unusually frank reaction from former Italian PM Mario Monti, who warned that Europe must not be viewed merely as “tool” of US global interests.“  Yeah - so?

NUCLEAR

EARTH
M5.4 @ 80km, Pacific/Antarctic Ridge.  (S of NZ)

M5.1 @ 2km, Baffin Is Region, Canada.

US - “Frigid Air to Roar Into Midwest, East in Waves Through Mid-February”

“Raging sandstorm engulfs Israel, Palestine, Lebanon and Egypt: Airports and seaports close and swimmers are rescued from the Red Sea“

M5.5 @ 40km, offshore Jalisco, Mexico.

“UK Opens National Parks to Fracking;  Environmental groups say lawmakers' backpedaling could pave way for fracking near drinking water sources”  I wonder what that cost Big Oil?

“More Rain in Malaysia and Indonesia – Serawak Floods Again“

“A new eruption of Home Reef Volcano, Tonga began on 10th February 2015. Steam cloud reached 6000 ft altitude.“

UNCLASSIFIED
“How Learning Artistic Skills Alters the Brain;  New research finds neural changes not only reflecting increased technical capacities, but also enhanced creativity.“

ALTERNATIVE

PREDICTION / FORECASTS

ASTRONOMIC
“Solar activity is low”  (Still!)

Even Galaxies have tails!  “It seems that all celestial bodies can be energized by the plasma in which they reside. Since 99.99% of matter in the Universe consists of charged particles, it could be said that plasma reigns over all.”

“Huge solar filament facing Earth“

“Bright lights and sonic booms in the night sky above North Island, New Zealand have been reported on February 11, 2015.  The event, which illuminated the sky and later shook doors and windows, happened around 22:00 local time (09:00 UTC). Descriptions of the light ranged from white and orange to green and blue.“  OK - so (yawn), just another meteor.  Anybody wondering if and when this uptick might stop?

HEALTH
“U.S. Media Blackout: Italian Courts Rule Vaccines Cause Autism”... “Court Decision: Mercury and Aluminum in Vaccine Caused Autism” …  A childhood vaccine against six childhood diseases caused the boy’s permanent autism and brain damage. While the Italian press has devoted considerable attention to this decision and its public health implications, the U.S. press has been silent.”  So have other nations’ press…..   I wonder why? The word ‘profit’ come to mind for you, immediate or future??

“Researchers have discovered that antibiotics have an unwanted impact on the microorganisms that live in an animal's gut that's more broad and complex than previously known.”

GENERAL / USEFUL
“A Look Inside This Luxury 280 Square Foot Tiny House In Oregon“  The shape (and size) of housing to come?  It wouldn’t appeal to the ostentatious, but I’d love it! 

=========================================
“Those who are too smart to engage in politics are punished by being governed by those who are dumber.”
