Unspun News for the 14th of February, 2015

By's contributing news service, Unspun

From the Jerusalem Post:- “Syrian rebels call on Israel to bomb Hezbollah-Iran-Syria positions“  V.T. ed:- “You just can’t make this stuff up, ISIL wanting to be a forward air controller for IDF strikes in the Golan Heights.“

“More than 2,300 Ukrainian servicemen killed over past 25 days”  Guess you could say their hearts aren’t in it….. No humour there.  Just an observation.

“As Common Dreams has reported, the proposed authorization for use of military force (AUMF) gives approval for open-ended and geographically limitless military operations. Its vague wording leaves the door open to use of ground troops, which the administration has previously vowed to avoid…”  “Calls Grow to Reject AUMF”

“Rachel Corrie's Family Denied Justice From Israel's Highest Court“  “Decision 'amounts to judicial sanction of immunity for Israeli military forces when they commit injustices and human rights violations,' said Corrie's family“  Zero surprises there…..

“Ceasefire May Spare Poroshenko From Knives Out in Kiev“  Ah ….. That’s why.
“As the U.S. continues to bomb the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, President Obama asked Congress today to approve a new legal framework for the ongoing military campaign.“  Standard practice now, eh?  Start a war then legalise it….

George Monbiot - This is an article that (I believe) ties a lot together that appeared separate;  “So the US government fails to prosecute the illegal transfer of billions of dollars, in order to protect American jobs, while sentencing people in the Horn of Africa to death because of the illegal transfer of a few thousand.”

THE SAKER - “I have to say that I am both amused and appalled at the completely over-the-top reaction of most commentators to what we might as well call the Mink-2 Agreement (M2A).  Apparently, analysis has been abandoned altogether and has now been replaced with hyperbole and vociferous but empty statements.”  Then read on - my feeling is that the Saker is spot on - again! 

“US Navy ships look to establish Darwin military base, but China won't be happy, warns expert”  There’s a helluva lot of thoughtful Aussies won’t be happy either…..

As good a summary of the Ukraine situation as you are likely to find ….. Covers the lot, in simple terms.

“'Unconscionable': New Federal Analysis Paves Way for Arctic Plunder;  New environmental impact statement shows Interior Department willing "to cater to Shell’s drilling wishes," says environmental group.“

East US/Canada - “Blizzard to Blast New England While Dangerous Cold Threatens Over 100 Million”

“Strong winds began to affect trans-Atlantic flights in January, 2015, causing some planes to arrive early and others to stop en route for additional fuel.  The changes occurred in high-altitude air streams, heavily affecting trans-Atlantic air travel, ...”

Klyuchevskaya Sopka's crater fills with lava amid new volcanic activity. - The volcano, the highest mountain in the Kamchatka peninsula - Russia's Land of Fire and Ice - is active again after one year's relative calm.“

“8 million tons of new plastic waste enters our oceans each year“

M5.9 @ 15km, Taiwan region.

“The head rabbi of Melbourne's Yeshivah Centre has told the royal commission into child sexual abuse he believes a gay person can be "cured" by therapy, like a paedophile.“  I guess that was his idea of a joke, and the idiots took him seriously?

“Nonviolent communication (NVC) is one of the most powerful tools available for transforming our lives and world. The below summary provides a concise explanation and easy-to-follow instructions for how to use these techniques to better manage interpersonal conflicts that come up in your life.”

Zen Gardener - “I don’t even need to ask who’s feeling this. We’re all experiencing turbulent vibrational times right now. It’s a very real challenge. Whatever the source, we’re going through a kind of vortex of change and disturbance that needs to be acknowledged and addressed.”

“Disney is seen around the world as a source of wholesome entertainment for children, but is there a darker side to its productions hidden in plain sight? This article investigates occult references in Disney productions, how society’s values and perception of good and evil are under threat, and the effect this could have on the future of spirituality.”


“Jupiter's 'Great Red Spot' shows true colors, glows white in new infrared image”

“Solar activity is low. With no sunspots actively flaring, the sun's X-ray output has flatlined. “

“The “dusty snowball” theory of comets needs attention, since there are crystals that need high temperatures to form in the matrix of at least two.“ …. “No “jets” of water vapor spew from comets, and no icy plains have ever been observed. It is electric effects that are seen—discharges and arcs form the comet phenomena.”

THIS should tell you more about vaccinations than you ever dreamed ….. “McDonald’s Gives Free Vaccines With Happy Meals In Texas“  Scary enough?

“In the quantum world, the future predicts the past. Playing a guessing game with a superconducting circuit called a qubit, a physicist has discovered a way to narrow the odds of correctly guessing the state of a two-state system.“  HUGE implications here!!!

“Tesla Motors, the company that brought you the electric car, is working on a new kind of battery that would be used to power homes.“

 “Although the idea that the ETs will “save” us is an attractive thought (like waiting for Jesus is an attractive thought for many) perhaps both Jesus and the ETs seriously believe that God Helps Those Who Help Themselves.”

There is much disinformation and misinformation ‘out there’.  I do not have the time to check the credentials of every writer that I place in Unspun, so please be aware that your discrimination, used in parallel with your open-minded intellect, is your best friend - ALL the time!
