UNSPUNEWS - 160206


WORLD
“The Role Played by the Propaganda Steamroller in the Syrian Conflict” … “Propaganda, the war of cowards and sneaks, isn’t as faceless as many assume. Today we will take a look at a face or two, perhaps make someone “famous.”

WILLIAM BLUM - with comment on definitions of types of government relevant to societies today, with particular ref to America.  Interesting, informative, and thought-provoking!

PEPE ESCOBAR - “Picture sleepless nights at ‘Sultan’ Erdogan’s palace in Ankara. Imagine him livid when he learns the Syrian Arab Army (SAA), backed by Russian air power, started a preemptive Battle of Aleppo – through the Bayirbucak region - cutting off Ankara’s top weaponizing corridor and Jihadi highway.”

UNDER-REPORTED
“The Australian Government Is Monitoring Welfare Recipients' Social Media Accounts“  … and you can bet that’s not all …...

JOHN PILGER - EXCELLENT article re Julian Assange and the latest developments…. As well as historical ones.  This is a serious need-to-read.  “What is certain is that the decent world owes much to Julian Assange. He told us how indecent power behaves in secret, how it lies and manipulates and engages in great acts of violence, sustaining wars that kill and maim and turn millions into the refugees now in the news.”

FINIAN CUNNINGHAM - “And so the wheels of the Geneva talks came off in spectacular fashion, with all parties blaming each other for the breakdown in the so-called Syrian peace process.“ … “Take it as read: it’s over.”

BOOMs galore in America - “Another Huge, Ground-Shaking Boom in New York — Not Sonic and Not Seismic“  So from whence the boom???

“Torrential rainfalls trigger flooding and landslides in Ecuador“ … “Rainfall daily values were above 100 mm (3.9 inches) during intense weather events”  Could YOUR local area handle that??

PREDICTION/FORECASTS

ASTRONOMIC
“AR2494 is growing rapidly and could soon pose a threat for M-class flares.”  (Would be earth-directed)

HEALTH

GENERAL/USEFUL
“32 Year-old James Hugston was 1 of the 3 lucky winners to hit the billion dollar jackpot. He received an estimated $327 million lump sum.”  He died a couple of weeks later after an OD of Coke and hookers…..  And, presumably, a negative IQ….

“This excellent shipping container home was built for less than $27,000”  Was I starting afresh, this IS the way I’d go ….

BOOK

======================================
“Were an Asiatic to ask me for a definition of Europe, I should be forced to answer him: It is that part of the world which is haunted by the incredible delusion that man was created out of nothing, and that his present birth is his first entrance into life.”

~~ Arthur Schopenhauer, 19th century German philosopher
