Unspun News for the 7th April 2016

UNSPUNEWS - 160407

“When the so-called “Arab Spring” took off, Saif Al-Islam Gaddafi, son of Muammar Gaddafi, made a televised speech to Libyans warning them, and the world, of what would happen should the central government in Tripoli fall apart.    His predictions included that Al-Qaeda would come in and Libya would be partitioned into at least three states. Apart from being unable to predict that the resurrected Al-Qaeda was going to rename itself as Daesh, he was accurate in every detail.“

Israel - “During hearing on extending detention of soldier who shot wounded terrorist, military prosecutor drops murder charges.” … “Instead the soldier is being charged with manslaughter, and not murder.   The hearing was held at the Qastina military court, following a similar extension request on Tuesday when hundreds of protesters showed up at the court to support the soldier. ”

“WikiLeaks has once again exposed how supranational organisations create artificial crises in an effort to advance the Western corporate-political elites geostrategic goals, as revealed in the transcript of a teleconference, which took place on March 19, 2016, between top International Monetary Fund (IMF) officials.”

PEPE ESCOBAR - connecting the dots of the Panama ‘Leak’.  Point - “Absolutely nothing of real substance happens in Panama without a green light by the United States government.”  GOOD point.

“Eradicating extreme poverty and hunger—two of the the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) agreed by the United Nations in 2015—may seem far out of reach. But, according to a new study, it could done with about ten percent of the world's military spending.”  Priorities, eh?

“Dr Kathleen Thomas has accused the Australian Government of not doing enough to press for an independent investigation into the bombing. ...   The MSF hospital in Kunduz was destroyed by precise and repeated US airstrikes that killed 42 people, including 14 MSF staff members.“  Gosh, I wonder why no-one is accountable????

The Russian T-50 fighter ….. “Besides its ability to fly at speeds well above Mach 2, the T-50 boasts other, even more important, features such as invisibility to radar and powerful weapons.”  A VERY mean machine….

“21WIRE previously remarked immediately after the Brussels Attacks two weeks ago, about the similarities to how the scene was arranged at the Boston Bombing in 2013.
The main iconic media images were delivered by a NATO-linked photographer named KetevanKardava from the Republic of Georgia, who just happened to be right there to catch the action, but for some odd reason did not manage to photograph one dead body in all alleged carnage caused by the blast.”  Big ‘Hmmmm……’

Arnie Gundersen - “I’ve learned there’s a huge spike in death rates in Fukushima for young children”… Officials are covering up data — Gov’t committing inhuman acts on their own people — Doctor’s who treat patients suffering from radiation illness are being put out of business “

The Carmichael mine - ““It defies reason,” said Charlie Veron, former chief scientist at the Australian Institute of Marine Science, the Sydney Morning Herald reported. “I think there is no single action that could be as harmful to the Great Barrier Reef as the Carmichael coal mine.”

Oz - “Sydney has recorded its hottest April day on record, with the weather bureau saying the temperature reached 34.2 degrees Celsius at Observatory Hill about 1:30pm.”  Nasty cold westerly here off the Southern Ocean - 1/3rd of Sydney’s temp!!

M6.7 @ 30km, Vanuatu

M6.1 @ 68km, Java, Indonesia.

“Tropical Cyclone Zena has been downgraded to a category two and is gradually weakening, Fijian local media say, after the tropical storm passed to the south of the country overnight.“

“Amazing Eruption in South Japan at Sakurajima Volcano -- Static Discharge Lightning”  REALLY spectacular around the 1m30s point….

O-M-G…… “Lighthouse is swamped by 160ft waves - as high as 11 double-decker buses - as 85mph winds strike French coast”  Sequence shots from a helicopter - Whoever designed and built that tower must be smiling …..

“Ontario breaks cold temperature records, Canada“  AND be sure to see this 7 point list a short way down -  “The following is a summary of weather event information received by Environment Canada on April 5: …….”  Record sub-zero temps from Canada to London to Delhi.

“The Awful Terrible Horrible Global Sea Ice Crisis“  VERY interesting conclusions here!!!

“Uh, oh. New study shows Earth’s internal heat drives rapid ice flow and subglacial melting in Greenland“  Funny how we always forget that internal heat….

M5.7 @ 129km, Banda Sea. (Due north from Darwin).

“On December 26, 1900, something strange and unexplained happened on the largest of the Flannan Islands, Eilean Mor, Scotland.   Three lighthouse keepers disappeared into the night, never to be seen again. Their mysterious disappearance still baffles historians and scientists.”



“NASA releases 3 million photos of Earth“  Impressive…..

“Sunspot AR2528 has developed a 'beta-gamma' magnetic field that poses a slight threat for M-class solar flares.”

“The bombardment of Mars some 4 billion years ago by comets and asteroids likely enhanced climate conditions enough to make the planet more conducive to life, at least for a time, according to a new study by researchers from the University of Colorado Boulder”

“The Earth was bombarded by debris from a series of stellar explosions with the closest supernova occurring about 2.3 million years ago, two new studies indicate.   The timing of the showers coincide with major changes in temperature and fauna on Earth, suggesting supernovae may have played a role in the planet's evolution.”

“Is invasive cancer a hyphal fungus?”  This makes a good case for that question ….



Please - take 4 minutes to watch this.  It is not only visually beautiful - it is also deep wisdom.  

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!
