Unspun News for the 23rd October 2015

UNSPUNEWS - 151023


WORLD
“Saudi Arabia Will Be Broke In 5 Years, IMF Predicts”  I have a feeling that that might be an optimistic window??

“Holocaust controversy: Netanyahu suggests grand mufti convinced Adolf Hitler to exterminate Jews”  The idea that people are that gullible is an even bigger worry…. because many are.
GILAD ATZMON re that speech ….

Oz - “PM Turnbull says he's keen on transparency but shields the rich from transparency on tax, shrouds our gulags in secrecy about atrocities in detention and tells us zip about his tax haven investments.”  Our pollies learn fast …..


MIKE WHITNEY - “Putin Forces Obama to Capitulate on Syria“ Concise and incisive - the latest squirm from Washington.

“The White House has issued a scathing attack on Russia's "red carpet" welcome for Syrian president Bashar al-Assad, accusing Moscow of impeding progress towards a political transition by propping up the dictator.“  Last I heard, a big majority of Syrians favour him….  And?

Two-part article by DMITRY ORLOV - some good summarising here.

“Turkey may regret border violation claims in Hatay“  So…. that particular border was once Syrian anyway!

UNDER-REPORTED
“… the Knowledge Vault is different in that it will actively filter out whatever Google deems to be "misinformed" or "false" -- a modern-day Ministry of Truth” …  as the search engine giant implements a new algorithm to actively censor information deemed "untrustworthy."   Paying attention yet?  It’s getting a bit late, now…..

JAMES PETRAS - re the October 12, 2015 terror bombing in Ankara  - bottom line - “the hypothesis, which most elegantly and thoroughly accounts for and makes sense of the facts is that the Erdoğan regime was directly responsible for the planning and organization of the massacres (…).   A subsidiary hypothesis is that (…) the placing of the bombs may have been by an ISIS terrorist, but under the control of Erdoğan’s police apparatus.”

JOHN PILGER - “Tony Blair must be Arrested under the Proceeds of Crime Act. “The Paramount War Crime under Nuremberg”  Yeah - keep wishing and hoping….. 

“Australia's new Joint Strike Fighter jets could cost extra $100 million after Canada withdrawal” At $191 million EACH …...
BUT -  “In every scenario that the F-35 has been wargamed against Su-30 Flankers, the Russian aircraft have emerged winners.”  Are we THAT daft????  Yes.

Something you don’t often see - a Palestinian’s viewpoint, starting in 1845, and on-going…   “...colonialism always arrives with a sense of supremacy that does not look upon native peoples as human. That is why Israel has always underestimated us.”

“The Debate Around 19 Arabs And “Whether Or Not The Earth Is Flat”  “The official theory claims that 19 Arabs took on American’s military might and the security of the Pentagon.”  Then along came an Australian (Victorian) Trades Hall president….

“And now it seems the UK is going even further, (…) Specifically, the Family Division of the Judiciary has put out a memo declaring exactly how it will remove children from the homes of anyone it suspects might radicalize those children. “  Orwell lives…..

NUCLEAR
“A lawsuit filed against Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), the plaintiffs claim the power company delayed telling the U.S. Navy the tsunami had caused a nuclear meltdown, sending huge amounts of contaminated water into the sea and, ultimately, into the ship’s water system.”  re USS Ronald Reagan and the crew’s radiation sicknesses….

EARTH
M4.9 @ 10km, Central N. Java, Indonesia.

“About 30 snowy sightings were reported through Wednesday in Wisconsin, (…) The reports are earlier in the season and higher in number than any year on record.“

“Thunderstorm hits Malta, large hail stones reported;”

“Mexico's most active volcano Popocatepetl pumps ash and smoke high into the sky as it erupts in spectacular fashion”

“Too much even for Siberia: Worst blizzard in 10yrs turns Omsk into huge snowball” … “You might say it’s nothing special for Siberia, but those who know – namely weather forecasters – believe it could be the most significant snowfall in 10 years.“

“Most Ice on Hudson Bay since 1992”

An interesting look at lightning…… it literally can shape the Earth!

“Earthquakes are now progressing across the North American plate, literally traversing the edge of the craton from the West Coast (Pacific Northwest) to the East Coast / Southeast Canada.   A picture speaks a thousand words, this graphic below shows the past 7 days of M2.5+ earthquakes across North America (as recorded by the USGS).   The progression of earthquakes is obvious in its path along the edge of the North American Craton.“ … “Contrary to dogmas taught in today’s Universities , the facts speak for themselves , and we can now certainly say that the old teaching is incorrect — that earthquakes DO indeed progress across great distances over short periods of time.”

UNCLASSIFIED
“Eighty years after Einstein dismissed the idea of quantum entanglement as "spooky", Dutch scientists say they have proved the effect is real, and that simply observing one particle can instantly change another far-away object.”  “Instantly” - got that?

ALTERNATIVE
Is weather creation an ‘alternative’?  If so it’s not a good one ….

PREDICTION/FORECASTS
I would call this ‘excellent speculative logic’.  It fits the facts, it is a reasonable projection, and  apparently confirms observations.  The ‘tipping point’ is probably ‘Greater Israel’ - which is logical speculation gleaned from events and logical extrapolation.  And as he says - “This is what happens when tribal madmen dream.”  I am remembering Edgar Cayce again…. on a large scale.
And if you are wondering what the ‘Samson Option’ is ….

ASTRONOMIC
(Earth-directed) “Sunspot AR2436 has a 'beta-delta' magnetic field that harbors energy for C-class solar flares.”

Part 2 of “On the Ball — A History of Terrella Research”

HEALTH
Windburn?  No - still the old UV doing the burning.

“There is strong evidence that MMR (Measles, Mumps, and Rubella) vaccine is not associated with autism,” the study’s results said.”   HUH???? How can you take negative evidence as conclusive proof?

“A simple oral dose of an active form of vitamin B3 may be the secret to stopping people with significant sun damage from developing some forms of skin cancer.“

GENERAL/USEFUL
If this doesn’t give you a sleepless night, it should…...

======================================
“A child born today will grow up with no conception of privacy at all.  They’ll never know what it means to have a private moment to themselves, an unrecorded, unanalysed thought.  And that’s a problem because privacy matters, privacy is what allows us to determine who we are and who we want to be.”

~~Edward Snowden.
