UNSPUNEWS - 160117

“Global depression around the corner? Ship cargo rates at all-time low“  All about the Baltic Dry Index - and YES, you DO need to know.  A VERY important read ...

PEPE ESCOBAR - “Does China Hold Key To The Afghan Puzzle?”  Interesting speculations here.

“The West continues its strong political and military support to one of its longstanding allies in the Middle East – Saudi Arabia –- despite withering criticism of the kingdom’s battlefield excesses in the ongoing war in neighboring Yemen.”

FINIAN CUNNINGHAM - “Indonesia Snubs Saudi ‘Anti-terror’ Coalition... Then Its Capital Gets Hit” … “The question is: what’s behind the uptick in IS-affiliated activity in Indonesia?”
Definite NEED to read….

“If the West see ISIS as an almost stereotypical band of psychopathic killers, we risk dramatically underestimating them.” Charlie Winter, a senior researcher focusing on IS at Georgia State University concurs, explaining: “Far from being an army of irrational, bloodthirsty fanatics, ISIS is a deeply calculating political organisation with an extremely complex, well-planned infrastructure.”

“Declassified Emails Reveal Nato Killed Gaddafi To Stop Libyan Creation Of Gold-Backed Currency”  Sounds likely…..

“For the Netanyahu government, restricting ideas is as important as seizing territory”  Naturally …..

“Australia’s Foreign Policy: Is an Adult in Charge?“  Now THERE’s a good question….  And the last para is the sting in the tail….

“The biggest dinosaur ever to be shown at the American Museum of Natural History will be unveiled on Friday, and its head will graze the ceiling. Known as the Titanosaur, it is one of the largest dinosaurs ever discovered, and lived 100 million years ago”

“Strange Sounds are back in Singapore, Budapest and California – January 2016”  3 videos - VERY weird …..

Probably the strangest sighting report I’ve ever seen …...

“The spiritual energy healing practice of Reiki is an ancient eastern holistic health tradition that dates back thousands of years. Reiki was rediscovered by Dr. Mikao Usui of Japan and was brought to the west by Mrs. Hawayo Takata in 1937.”


“Farewell, Philae. The space lander that touched down on comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko (and in our hearts) in November 2014 has not responded to a last-ditch attempt to wake it, and it now looks almost certain that the lander is permanently sleeping.“

“Not one of these sunspots poses a threat for strong flares. Solar activity remains low.”

“The author is a self-professed “animal communicator,” one of a growing number of people who say they have the psychic ability to communicate telepathically with various animals. “Anybody can communicate with animals,” the author claims, and says it’s done through imaging.”  Have not (yet) read this myself, but it looks worthwhile!

“Truth is a pathless land, and you cannot approach it by any path whatsoever, by any religion, by any sect…  Truth, being limitless, unconditioned, unapproachable by any path whatsoever, cannot be organised; nor should any organisation be formed to lead or to coerce people along any particular path.”
