Unspun News 160818

UNSPUNEWS - 160818

“Serbian PM calls top advocate of Yugoslavia NATO bombing Biden a ‘friend of country’”  Hypocrisy roolz…..

“Ex-general says NATO-Russia nuclear war ‘possible within a year’“

“Amid an escalation of violence, increasing numbers of civilian casualties, and a nearly unprecedented humanitarian crisis in Yemen, the New York Times editorial board on Wednesday called the United States "complicit in the carnage" and demanded the Obama administration end its support for the Saudi-led coalition which has repeatedly been accused of war crimes by critics.“  Brave Board ….

“The “Hatred of Life”: The World System which is Threatening All of Us;  In this civilization, true democracy is impossible.“  Deep questions with uncomfortable solutions?

“Australia becoming “geopolitical flashpoint” amid sharpening US-China rivalry” ….. That was always a ‘given’, but unmentionable….

“This piece may likely resonate with you, and even perhaps depress you. It might make you wonder: Are people playing Pokémon Go, or is Pokémon Go playing them?”  Seriously scary stuff - for those not sleep-walking…..

“Koch Brothers Waging War Against Local Effort to Expose Dark Money“  And who else did you think was running America?

WAYNE MADSEN -  “The Destruction of Yugoslavia: A Template for America’s Future Policy”  The last paragraph asks the biggest question…..

“Former CIA deputy director Michael Morell, who supports Hillary Clinton and insists that Donald Trump is being manipulated by Russian President Vladimir Putin, said that Russians and Iranians in Syria should be killed covertly to “pay the price.”    Yes - the inmates ARE running the asylum now …

“The Fukushima disaster has been out of the news cycle for more than a year now, but the radioactive fallout and its cascade of adverse effects is far from being just another page in the history books. Reports from around the world indicate that Fukushima radiation is still wreaking havoc on people's health, in some cases eating away human brains in some bizarre, zombie radiation apocalypse.”  [Apparently. Cesium will do that….]

Some GREAT pix here ….. “The images which include spectacular underwater shots, Australian natives and landscapes will go on show at the South Australian Museum”

Greenland Sharks - “in it for the long haul” with “Astonishing Longevity”….

“If you think the recent weather has been strange lately, listen to this tale of a year without a summer. In 1815 a volcanic eruption caused the following year’s weather patterns to be drastically different. People across the world experienced unusual weather and increased hardships, but they did not associate the volcano with the conditions at the time.“

US - “A wildfire continued raging through rural communities in California Wednesday, triggering a state of emergency and evacuation orders for more than 82,000 residents in the San Bernardino area.” … "It hit hard, it hit fast, with an intensity that we've never seen before,"

US - “The National Weather Service confirmed Tuesday that seven tornadoes tore through Central Indiana on Monday night, including three in Hendricks County.”“

Oz (WA) - “PERTH is on track for the coldest winter this century.  June and July temperatures have been the coldest in years, including several hot-water bottle-bursting mornings that have dropped below zero.“

Japan - “Tropical Storm "Chanthu" made the first landfall in Japan's Chosi, Chiba prefecture around 18:30 UTC on August 16 (03:30 JST on August 17) and the second near Cape Erimo on the southern tip of the main island of Hokkaido around 08:30 UTC on August 17, 2016.“

OMG - How TRUE is this???  Bottom line - “Modern academia has done a remarkable job of erecting fences around its cherished dogmas. But that has only ensured that new discoveries will come from outside the fence. In time, the fence will enclose not the choicest turf but the junkyard.   The Finder’s Fallacy is the deadbolt on the door of the mind.“  But DO read the rest - not long, but SO true!


PCR - “Will Human Evil Destroy Life On Earth?” A logical, sobering and thought-provoking essay…..  Worth reading, since YOU are here too…...

AND - I just re-found this, saved on my computer.
Yes, it was and IS worth saving …… these are the headers - 

“Queensland astronomers will join the search for life on other planets with plans to build six telescopes on a remote Darling Downs property, west of Brisbane.”

“ During the early hours of August 17th, a solar wind stream passed to the south of Earth. The near-miss disturbed our planet's magnetic field, sparking auroras around the Arctic Circle.”
ALSO - “Not one of these sunspots has the type of unstable magnetic field that poses a threat for strong flares.”

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!
