UNSPUNEWS - 160101

May 2016 bring you THIS sort of energy every day!  (1 min video)  Enjoy!

“Iraq urges Turkish troops pullout, threatens military action“

PEPE ESCOBAR - with a very interesting analysis of the can of worms that is Turkey/Israel/Syria/Iran/Hezbollah et al (and don’t forget Russia….) WHAT a tangle….

Miko Peled is an ex-pat Israeli living in USA who stopped and took an honest look at Palestine.  His final paragraph is wishful thinking - but he is making a point.

FINIAN CUNNINGHAM - “As Syrians gather in their capital Damascus to celebrate, there is a sense that the New Year will bring a measure of peace – the first time such hope has been felt over the past five years of war in the country.” … “What is interesting is how the Western news media are reporting all this. Their reportage of the truces and evacuations are straining to minimize the context of these developments.”

“While the mainstream media focus on ISIS extremists, a threat that has gone virtually unreported is that your life savings could be wiped out in a massive derivatives collapse. Bank bail-ins have begun in Europe, and the infrastructure is in place in the US.”  Are you paying attention?  This is the logical next step.

“Prof Michael Hudson explains in under 90 seconds how US military budgets are financed by the nations it encircles.”  Neat trick, eh?

A lot of very notable items in here.  Not least, Cheney’s foot …. How laid back is that???

“Almost entirely unnoticed internationally, Turkey’s government and rebellious Kurdish groups are locked in battle in a series of sieges in the main towns in the east of the country.”  And the western MSM is where????

“A study examining measurements taken from forests 60 to 120 kilometers away from the crippled Fukushima Daiichi power plant revealed that cesium levels doubled in 2013.“

M5.4 @ 125km, Taiwan region.

“Tuvalu battered by heavy rains, strong winds as Pacific island nations brace for Cyclone Ula“

UK - “Storm Frank: Northern Britain battered by high winds, floods; hundreds of homes evacuated; Scotland bears the brunt“

M5.7 @ 50km, near west coast of Nicaragua

US - “'Incredible' Winter Flooding Along Mississippi River Could Be Historic;  "Nobody that is living has ever seen anything like this."

“Twenty-five people received turbulence-related injuries on an Air Canada flight AC88 on its way to Toronto from Shanghai. (…) Some had to be taken to hospital, with at least 6 reportedly in serious condition.“  Something else to ‘get used to’ in our turbulent atmosphere….

“Workers are being evacuated from the Floatel Superior rig in the southern Norwegian Sea following a serious stability incident amid bad weather,…”

“Montreal hit with 39.2 cm (15.4 inches) of snow, breaking a 61-year-old record.“

“Arctic ice at greatest extent since this period in 2005“  Global what-ing?

“Heavy snowfall in Peru – In the summer“  “ Heavy snowfall of about 10 centimeters thick covered Chonta population centers today and Astobamba Pucapampa district of Santa Ana, in the province of Castrovirreyna, Huancavelica region, surprising its inhabitants.”

“Greenland retained 99.7% of its ice mass in 20th Century!!!“  A CLASSIC example of spin at its worst…..

“Psychotherapist Howard Teich explains how Disney’s new blockbuster may be a psychological game changer, one that turns around war, violence, mass destruction.“

“A self-taught Melbourne photographer says he never expected his shot of a Colorado tornado to take out the high-profile National Geographic 2015 Photo Contest.“  Look at the pix here - NO surprise he won!!



Oz Sky guide - “January may not have any spectacular comets or eclipses to herald the New Year, but the January skies will have lots to fill you with wonder, especially if you are an early riser,”

“Sunspot AR2473 is decaying and no longer has the type of unstable magnetic field that harbors energy for very strong flares.”
ALSO - “Solar wind conditions in the wake of the CME are now causing intermittent G1 and G2-class geomagnetic activity.”

“The massive filament observed in association with sunspot 2339 reveals its electrical parentage, underscoring Electric Universe advocate Wal Thornhill’s assertions: “After 100 years of neglect, an electrical model of stars is just beginning to emerge. It is an engineer’s view that offers a coherent understanding of our real place in the universe (cosmology) and practical insights for the future exploration of space.”

“After years of being told that margarine was more “heart-healthy” than butter, we’re now discovering in long-term studies that the science simply just doesn’t back up the claim.“

“Rick Simpson Healed 5,000 People from Cancer: Here’s His Recipe“



“There is a big difference between loving yourself and being selfish. When you truly understand what it is to know and love yourself, you cannot help but to love and serve others. When you understand this at the core level of your being, you will be on the path Home.”

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!
