Unspun News for the 27th January 2016

UNSPUNEWS - 160127

“Saudi Arabia is bombing civilians with U.S.-made bombs, which violates both U.S. and international law.   Saudi Arabia has engaged in war crimes, and the United States is aiding and abetting them by providing the Saudis with military assistance.”  It really IS that simple….

“The logic of the Australian ruling elite’s alliance with the United States and the Australian government’s unconditional support for the aggressive US “pivot to Asia” against China is spelt out in a major report published this month by the US Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS).”  I hope you’re paying attention?  You DID see this coming, didn’t you?

“Despite widespread condemnation, Denmark's parliament is expected to vote in favour of drastic reforms curbing asylum seekers' rights, including delaying family reunifications and confiscating migrants' valuables.“  Huh??????
And yes, they passed the law…..  Is this a signpost to our future morality?

Oh WOW!!! America to stop putting children into solitary confinement!  In 2016 AD!

“The attempts to make the representatives of Syria’s government and opposition get together at the round table on January 25 have failed. There was no agreement on the list of opposition invitees.” … “The Saudi Kingdom wants to take advantage of its relationship with the United States in its stand-off with Iran.”

“For some Aboriginal people, Torres Strait Islanders and activists, Australia Day is seen as the dispossession of Indigenous land and a day of mourning over the First Fleet's arrival at Port Jackson in Sydney.  Thousands protested across the states and territories, with hundreds of people gathering at Parliament House in Melbourne to hear Aboriginal speakers talk about their ancestors and what Invasion Day meant for them.”  ‘Oh, would some power, the small gift give us, To see ourselves as others see us’ …  Are we getting Burns’ gift, albeit belatedly?

FINIAN CUNNINGHAM - bottom line - “That truth is far too grim to admit to public knowledge and discussion. For  such truth would indict Washington as a terror sponsor, answerable to international law. And so the Western media fulfil their assigned function – of concealing damning truth and keeping the public oblivious. That makes them equally complicit in the criminality of their government.”

MIKE WHITNEY - “Stock Buybacks and the Wall Street Sharktank: “A Whole Lotta Stealin’ Goin’ On”

“Why Has US Decided to Destroy IMF?”  Nothing good here …..

“The Gates Foundation - widely assumed to be 'doing good', is imposing a neoliberal model of development and corporate domination that's opening up Africa's agriculture to land and seed-grabbing global agribusiness,“


“Snow, sleet and icy winds across Asia have caused deaths, flight cancellations and chaos as areas used to basking in balmier climates struggled with record-low temperatures. Ninety weather-related deaths were reported in Taiwan and five in Japan, with tens of thousands of holidaymakers stranded in South Korea and freezing conditions in sub-tropical Hong Kong causing mayhem on its tallest peak.”  Global warming gets ya every time, eh?

“Volcano eruption at Popocatepetl closes central Mexican airport“

“More than 600 species of British flowers in bloom on New Year's Day; … In a normal winter botanists would expect no more than 20 to 30 plants to have been in flower”  Hint, hint?

M6.0 @ 44km, New Ireland region, PNG.  (The SW Pacific seems very active right now - Tonga, Fiji, Solomons…)

“Poland – Snow covers the entire country“

“Blizzard 2016 claims at least 30 lives across the US East Coast”

“Ecuador – 1 Dead After Floods and Landslides – 14cm of Rain in 24 Hours in Esmeraldas”

“Located in the southeastern region of Anatolia in Turkey is an archaeological site known as Göbekli Tepe. Deemed "unremarkable" when the site was first discovered in the early 1960s, Klaus Schmidt thought otherwise, and we should be glad he did.”   Interesting indeed…. but the sites in Peru could definitely give it some  age competition!



“Solar activity remains low.”  BUT - “High above the sun's north pole, a vast gap has formed in the sun's atmosphere, and it is spewing solar wind into space.”

“As Deep as the Ocean and as High as the Sky“  Hidden water on Mars?  And deuterium, and electric arcs ….   It’s never THAT simple!

“Baking Soda is One of the Greatest & Healthiest Things You Could Use”  “Here is a gather up of some of the most important uses for baking soda.”

“Cheese triggers the same part of the brain as hard drugs, say scientists”  Damn - I thought I just liked cheese….. And here I am a junkie…..



"Genius is experience. Some seem to think that it is a gift or talent, but it is the fruit of long experience in many lives."

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!
