Unspun News for the 22nd April 2016

UNSPUNEWS - 160422


WORLD
“Now that Syria’s “cessation of hostilities” appears to be crumbling and rebel forces are gearing up for a fresh offensive, the mighty U.S. propaganda machine is once again up and running.”  

“NATO and Russia held their highest level talks in nearly two years on April 20 in a bid to ease tensions and renew regular contacts.“  A few interesting snippets in here ….

“America Has Been At War 93% of the Time – 222 Out of 239 Years – Since 1776“


George Orwell, in his timeless novel Nineteen Eighty-Four, demonstrated that the most effective method for keeping people under the jackboot of bureaucratic control is to foist upon them an enemy - even an imaginary one - that requires the 'benevolent' intervention of liberty-crushing government agencies and legislation.   (…) some less ethical readers interpreted Orwell's message more as an instruction manual than the warning it was meant to be.”

“US authorizes intensified air strikes against civilians in Iraq and Syria;   Since last fall, without any public acknowledgment by the US government and military, US warplanes have been bombing civilian areas in Iraq and Syria under loosened rules of engagement, the US Defense Department announced Wednesday.“

UNDER-REPORTED
ALAN HART - “Some and perhaps very many of you have had the pleasure of listening to my very dear friend Ilan Pappe, the “revisionist” (which means honest) Israeli historian and author of The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine. It was Ilan who explained to me why the Zionist lobby puts so much effort into causing my book and discussion of what it reveals to be suppressed to the maximum possible extent throughout the entire Western world.”  HIGHLY recommended read.  The straws in the wind turn into a flying haystack!

“Each year around 5,000 Norwegian teenagers go to Camp Refugee - a fake refugee experience at a disused military base - to learn what it is like to be an asylum seeker taking the perilous journey from Sudan to Norway.”  A brilliant way to learn a bit about reality and humanity…...

“'Staggering Reach' of UK Surveillance and 15-Year Coverup Revealed;   Privacy International releases trove of documents detailing extent of British spying operations“  And if you think ‘only in UK’ you are very, very gullible…..

“So, Who’s the Ultimate Villain: Assad or Erdogan?” “… even the most impartial observer following the conflict in Syria over recent years must be surprised with such an aggressive posture, held by Washington and its collaborators against the government in Damascus, in a bid to reorder the Middle East so that total domination of the region by the US would be ensured.”

“The European powers are exploiting the mass drownings in the Mediterranean Sea to expand their military engagement in the region and prepare a new intervention in Libya.”

NUCLEAR
“Alarm over “Catastrophic Leak” at US nuclear site — “Emergency response underway” — Surge in radioactive leakage after “essentially blowing a hole” in massive tank containing “deadliest substance on earth” — Former Worker: “I was very shocked to hear it breached that significantly”  Looks like there’s a big hush going on?

EARTH
US - “Scientists say the Sierra's eastern front is long overdue for a large earthquake along the California-Nevada line, where a magnitude 7 event expected on average every 30 years hasn't occurred in six decades.”

“Study claims: Ancient tectonic activity was trigger for ice ages“

This warm water bleaching the reef is also affecting even Tassy, way down south, via the East Oz Coast Current.  The BIG question is, what is warming it?  Basic physics implies geologic, not atmospheric causes …. Lots thoughtful ponders here….

“Dozens Of Large Earthquakes Strike As Speculation Mounts That Japan’s Southern Island May Split“  Starting to get dramatic….

INDIA - “Over 2,000 houses and other facilities with roofs of tin and corrugated sheets were damaged in the thunderstorms and torrential rains that hit many parts of Manipur, residents said.”

“Romania – Blizzards and heavy snowfalls in the middle of spring”

“I’ve received this from two independent sources, which is said to be from a mailing list being circulated, and I believe it to be genuine. Climate Feedback is a website that rates news stories on climate on their “factuality”, but it has one major flaw: it is entirely one-sided, biased, and without checks or balances.”  The rot is deeper and wider than most ppl dream of….

“Newly formed Tropical Cyclone "Amos" to remain nearly stationary over the Samoan Islands“

UNCLASSIFIED
“The Missing Ingredient of Happiness”

ALTERNATIVE

PREDICTION/FORECASTS

ASTRONOMIC
“New sunspot SR2533 has a stable magnetic field that does not pose a threat for strong explosions and solar flares.”

“According to the theory, when magnetic field lines cross and “reconnect” through some unknown mechanism, they are supposed to detonate, releasing large quantities of heat, light and electrical energy.   The fatal flaws in magnetic reconnection theory are not the topic of this paper. Suffice to say that magnetic field lines are merely representations and are no more capable of detonation than lines of longitude are.“  WELL worth the read…. Re the MMS constellation of satellites….  Hmmmm…….

HEALTH
“Neuroscientist Shows What Fasting Does To Your Brain & Why Big Pharma Won’t Study It“

“A new virus, which put 80 Australian babies in hospital, can cause developmental delays and brain damage, leading doctors have found.“  I wonder how that evolved??

GENERAL/USEFUL

BOOK
