Unspun News 160827

UNSPUNEWS -160827


WORLD
“Rio 2016: Vladimir Putin calls Russia's Paralympics ban immoral, prompted by political pressure“  Objectively, that is hard to argue with…..

15 min video - “Beyond its violent and damaging effects on the ground, the Syrian Conflict is a PR war mounted by the western powers and their surrogates.” … “‘It’s not a civil war – This is a war ON Syria’“
And this goes with that - “On Wednesday morning,Turkey abruptly launched an all-out military assault on Syria, sending in tanks, troops, andengaging in airstrikes, in concert with airstrikes from the United States, to the northern portions of Syria near the Turkey-Syria border under the guise of combatting ISIS forces.”


PCR - “Trump vs. Hillary: A Summation“  An interesting comparison - particularly for the confused outsider ……  PCR’s ‘bottom line’:- In other words, Trump is for America and for Americans. (…)  The imbecillic Americans who vote for Hillary are voting for war and their own immiseration.  Possibly, a vote for Trump is the same. However, in the case of Trump we do not know that. In the case of Hillary we most certainly do know it.”

It is so overt, it is embarrassing to see…  “Criminal Kiev Regime Gets a CNN Makeover… Cue More War“

“Washington’s Sunni myth and the Middle East undone”….. “A Westerner with extensive on-the-ground experience in Syria and Iraq tackles conventional Western views of the civil wars in Iraq and Syria and proposes a dramatic rethinking of the region.”

PEPE ESCOBAR - “So Turkish President, a.k.a. Sultan Recep Tayyip Erdogan is about to make a high-profile visit to Tehran – the date has not yet been set - to essentially kick start the ATM (Ankara-Tehran-Moscow) coalition in Syria.   Anyone as much as hinting at such a massive geopolitical tectonic shift a few weeks ago would be branded a madman. So how did the impossible happen?“

UNDER-REPORTED
“A senior Norwegian politician has drawn criticism for playing Pokemon Go on her smart phone during a parliamentary hearing about the country's defence policy.“ Yup - P.G. was/is a Masterstroke!

“Naomi Klein, Oliver Stone, Noam Chomsky, Susan Sarandon, Arundhati Roy, and 17 other human rights activists, intellectuals, and public figures on Wednesday sent a letter to the Brazilian government condemning the impeachment of the country's President Dilma Rousseff, and demanding that Brazil's senate "respect the October 2014 electoral process which over 100 million people took part in."  Good luck …….

“Turkey’s New Relationship with Russia – and Assad“

“Hillary Clinton: Candidate of Military Industrial Complex”  Look who’s backing her ….

“45 yrs ago this week, a memo launched the corporate takeover of the US govt”

NUCLEAR
“The site at which threeFukushima Daiichi reactors melted down in Japan more than six years ago remains a complete disaster zone, unsuitable for both humans and the electronic devices they have created. Though a massive cleanup is still underway, a lot must be done before the area can safely host human life again.   New information reveals that the radiation in the disaster zone is still so high that specialized robots built to assist in the cleanup are unable to function.“

“West Coast Orcas Experienced 100% Infant Mortality Rate As Radiation From Fukushima Drifted Across Ocean“

EARTH
“A SERIES of overdue high magnitude earthquakes is expected to strike at any moment along some of Earth’s major fault lines, an expert says.   UTS Geotechnical and Earthquake Engineering senior lecturer Dr Behzad Fatahi said “no one in the world is safe” from the looming natural disasters of potentially apocalyptic proportions.“

“Scientists who study earthquakes in Japan said Thursday they have detected a rare deep-Earth tremor for the first time and traced its location to a distant and powerful storm.“

“While highs reached 81 degrees in Denver Tuesday, on Pikes Peak, there was snow.  (…)  The earliest date of the first snowstorm in Denver? Sept. 3 (that was back in 1961). And for those of you new to the state, that means winter can start any time.“

Scotland - no snowpack melt this summer…. “49 feet (15 meters) of snow still remains on Ben Nevis“

US - Yellowstone N.P. - “The Beartooth Highway is closed on the Wyoming side, owing to winter conditions.   According to the Wyoming Department of Transportation, as of 9:07 a.m. MST, U.S. 212 between WY 296 and the Beartooth Pass was shut down after an abrupt snowstorm created icy conditions on the road.“

“Heavy rains, flash floods and mudslides likely over Hispaniola today, Cuba over the weekend“

PREDICTION/FORECASTS

ASTRONOMIC
“On Aug. 28th, Earth will cross a fold in the heliospheric current sheet. This "solar sector boundary crossing" could disturb our planet's magnetic field and spark auroras at high latitudes. NOAA forecasters estimate a 25% chance of G1-class geomagnetic storms.”
ALSO - 
“The connection between cosmic rays and clouds has long been controversial.  Some researchers hold that cosmic rays hitting Earth's atmosphere create aerosols which, in turn, seed clouds.  This could make cosmic rays an important player in weather and climate. “  Oh gosh golly - what a surprise!!!!!

“The Universe reveals itself through electrical phenomena.  The above image of the polaris Flare is derived from observations by the Planck satellite, now defunct, that was launched by the European Space Agency (ESA) in May 2005, along with the Herschel Space Observatory.“
