Unspun News for the 19th of March, 2015

By transients.info's contributing news service, Unspun

WORLD
PEPE ESCOBAR - “The Empire of Chaos dream of regime change in Russia has always hinged on controlling large swathes of Eurasia.”  It’s coming …………..

“The global financial system is literally booby-trapped with accidents waiting to happen owing to six consecutive years of massive money printing by nearly every central bank in the world.“  Brace for depression…..

STEPHEN LENDMAN  - re Israeli elections.  “Netanyahu is a world-class thug - a ruthless demagogue. He spurns rule of law principles. He abhors democratic values.  He prioritizes stealing all valued Palestinian land. He deplores peace. He calls pursuing it a waste of time.   His likely coalition partners are militantly hardline, racist, anti-democratic, and offensive to all values progressives and civil libertarians hold dear.”  http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article41272.htm
And another, very short, blunt, concise and incisive comment …... 

“Yesterday morning Australian Attorney-General George Brandis was on television trying to explain that his new metadata legislation designed to stop “criminals, terrorists and pedophiles” and stressed, “media organisations are not the target of this law”. He slammed the journalists’ union as ‘outrageous hyperbole’ and said the legislation would instead introduce new privacy protections and safeguards.   But MEAA chief executive officer Paul Murphy begs to differ, and in a statement said, “Accessing metadata to hunt down journalists’ sources, regardless of the procedures used, threatens press freedom and democracy.”  Where America went yesterday...

“In a sign of the European Union’s diminishing appetite for sanctions against Russia, seven EU member states are expected to reject any prolongation of the current western sanctions against Russia for its alleged role in the Ukrainian crisis.“

UNDER-REPORTED
Written by a Chinese-American, living in Ukraine - almost a short story, she gives us a vivid look into the psychology of those caught up in the Ukrainian mess.

“Plane drops of ammunition helping to reinforce ISIS – reports“  Riiiight…..

“To initiate a war of aggression, therefore, is not only an international crime; it is the supreme international crime differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole.    Forget third-hand allegations … the architects of the Iraq war admit that they initiated a war of aggression, not a war to defend America from imminent attack.“  Gosh - someone noticed….

“Gas supplies from Hungary to Ukraine have increased tenfold to a record 7.4 million cubic meters per day on Monday, up sharply from 720,000 cubic meters per day on March 7-12, the Ukrainian gas transportation network operator Ukrtransgaz said. “  (This is reverse-pumping Russian gas…..)

NUCLEAR
“Gov’t model shows Fukushima radioactive gas near Tokyo skyrocketed to 10,000,000,000 times normal levels soon after 3/11 – “Very high concentrations” recorded at all monitoring posts in northern hemisphere “  (From NOAA)

“Fukushima News 3/16/15:Another Radiation Surge; Ice Wall Delay; Japan Scraps 3 More Reactors”

EARTH
M6.2 @ 50km Molucca Sea.  (Lot of activity in this area now …..)

M6.2 @ 2km, offshore Bio-Bio, Chile.

“As snowfall records are set, ferry gets stuck in sea ice off Nova Scotia“ Comment - “I’m certain Al Gore and friends will have a good explanation why a ferry over 1000 miles south of the ice-less Arctic Circle is stuck in ice.”

US - “Longest snow cover on record in Islip, New York and Newark, New Jersey”

“More snow for Canada -  Winter storm and blizzard warnings for Nunavut and the east coast of Canada.”

Iceland - “.. the Scientific Advisory Board for Iceland´s recent volcanic activity officially declared that the eruption at Holuhraun had come to an end. “

Mexico - “Floods in Michoacan and Guerrero After 2 Days of Rain”

“Brazil Floods – 20,000 Affected in Boca do Acre after Purus River Overflows”

“UN Relocates 50,000 Refugees in Ethiopia to Avoid Flood Risk“   Yes, that is FIFTY THOUSAND - are you getting the message?  Violent, chaotic, WEATHER.

And Again .. “Queensland's State Disaster Management Committee will meet in Brisbane this morning to review emergency plans for Tropical Cyclone Nathan, expected to make landfall as a category four storm tomorrow morning.“
