Unspun News for the 24th January 2016

UNSPUNEWS - 160124

MIKE WHITNEY - with a rather different P.O.V. on the economy from Pepe Escobar’s take (160123).  Time will tell who is right.  Either way, things won’t be pretty….

“US Vice-President Joe Biden says the United States and Turkey are prepared for a military solution to Islamic State in Syria if a political settlement is not possible, amid uncertainty over scheduled peace talks.“
ALSO - “U.S. Troops Invade Syria: Take Over Air Base“  

“Australia is seeking cooperation to fight the "menace" of violent extremism in the region, Justice Minister Michael Keenan says.”

“Syrian president Bashar al-Assad blames West for asylum seeker crisis“ ... "When you have terrorism, and you have the destruction of the infrastructure, you won't have the basic needs of living.” … "If you are worried about [asylum seekers], stop supporting terrorists ... This is the core of the whole issue of refugees," Mr Assad said.”

“U.S. Troops Go to Sy-Raq to Reinforce Democracy“
And this definitely goes with that...
“US to Illegally Build Military Base in Syria in Preparation for Ground War“

“The Pentagon chief’s call on members of the so-called US-led coalition against Daesh (ISIL) shows that the United States is exploiting NATO to advance its global warfare and arms sales, according to an international lawyer and analyst.“  Makes sense ….

“A new analysis of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) international trade deal has found claims of increased jobs are likely exaggerated.”

“And let us never forget: colonialism and imperialism are two most deadly forms of terrorism. And these are still the two main weapons of that horseman who is choking the world!”  Logical, historical, and in the light of current affairs…. Probably spot-on thinking.

“Against Growing Authoritarian Threat of Far-Right, Massive Marches in Poland“ … “Thousands of citizens marched through city streets across Poland on Saturday to protest the right-wing government's encroaching authoritarianism, including a new plan to enact sweeping surveillance measures.“  Worm turning?

PCR - “They Tell Us Nothing But Lies”  Ain’t THAT the truth …. Bottom line here:- “The disturbing fact that the Anglo-Zionist Empire has supported Kagame, a genocidist who “has killed more than five times as many people as Idi Amin,” is perhaps an indication of what the Anglo-Zionist Empire has in mind for the rest of us. “

“Us Unleashing Deadly Virus In Donbass, Ukraine?“ … “Chemical, biological and radiological warfare is longstanding US practice, used in direct and proxy wars, Syrians and Yemenis notably affected.” … “More than 20 Ukrainian soldiers have died and over 200 are hospitalized,” affected by a virus “immune to all medicines.”

“Yes, you read it right: the US and its allies in the Middle East are putting forth al-Qaeda allies to govern Syria once Assad is overthrown.”  Could yo even make that up?

CRAIG MURRAY - Guardian censorship … “Feminism has become the main attack tool in the neo-con ideological arsenal. I am sceptical the concept can be redeemed from this.“


Zhupanovsky (Kamchatka, Russia): KVERT reported an explosion occurred on 19 January at 16:36 (local time) and generated an ash plume that rose to altitudes of 7-8 km (23,000-26,200 ft) a.s.l. and drifted 20 km east.”

“Western government propaganda is increasing as the weather around the world defies global warming predictions. The latest publication insists that global warming is likely to disrupt a natural cycle of ice ages and contribute to delaying the onset of the next big freeze until about 100,000 years from now is utterly senseless.“  OK - I expect most Unspun brains realise that.  Next question - exactly WHY?  Who gains what?  (We all know who loses ….)

“Millions of Bees Turning Up Dead Around GMO Corn Fields Soaked with Neonicotinoid Pesticides“  Get the message?

Almost exclusively blizzard reports - eastern USA.

“US blizzard: At least eight people reported dead as 'Snowzilla' blankets country“  And counting ….  

“A severe thunderstorm accompanied with heavy rainfall hit parts of South Australia and New South Wales on the afternoon of January 22, 2016. One person died after being struck by a lightning and residents have been warned on remain on high alert.“

“Tropical Cyclone "Corentin" formed south of Diego Garcia in the central Indian Ocean on January 21, 2016. The system is currently intensifying and will reach the Category 2 hurricane status over the next two days. It is expected to remain away from the populated areas, and no warnings have been issued thus far.“

“Oldest Evidence Of Beer Was Found On A Sumerian Tablet In Mesopotamia”  So Sumerians were even smarter than just genius mathematicians!!!

JON RAPPOPORT - “Every major covert op has the same concealed objective: “defeat the enemy and thereby gain more control.”  But control over what?  Beyond the usual answers, the root answer is: “control over the mind.”  Interesting concepts - and challenges!

JON RAPPOPORT - “Who I write for (updated)“
“I write to say every individual who inhabits a physical form is immortal, whether he likes it or not…and it’s better to face the truth than deny it.
I write to promote both logic and imagination—each in its own sphere of action.
I hope I write for you.“  Thanks Jon - my hand’s in the air!


More re that supernova - “A Supernova 570 Billion Times More Powerful Than Our Sun Just Pushed The Laws Of Known Physics“

“Solar activity remains low.”

“STRONG magnetic fields have been discovered in the majority of stars — a breakthrough finding set to impact research into their evolution.”  And magnetic fields and electricity are Siamese twins - yet STILL the entrenched idiots cannot move away from Newton….

“Ontario Pulls Plug on 36,000 Rural ‘Smart’ Meters: Is Big Energy Imploding?”

Ye gods - “ How to Hack a New Car With Your iPhone or Android“ … “Munic Box plug-in technology allows an access portal into your car’s computer functions.“


“Consciousness means, literally, "knowing-together." A development of consciousness would therefore mean knowing "more together," and so it would bring about a new relationship to everything previously known. For to know more always means to see things differently.”

~~ Maurice Nicoll

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!
