British Catholic Priests Caught Raping Children At Satanic Sex Parties Reader 06/16/2019 (Sun) 08:35:19 Id: 5af977 [Preview] No. 14905 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
A UK child abuse inquiry witness has told investigators how he was repeatedly raped by priests during “satanic” sex parties.

Dave Sharp says he is one of multiple victims who suffered sexual, physical and emotional torture at St Ninian’s in Falkland, Fife, between 1971 and 1975.

BBC News reports:
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-48559590

The independent Scottish Child Abuse inquiry is looking in detail at historical abuse of children in residential care.

Mr Sharp urged inquiry chairwoman Lady Smith, to piece together the “jigsaw” of victims’ accounts and called for a “national discussion” on the subject.

The 60-year-old, who has waived his right to anonymity, was put into care after his mother died when he was aged one.

He stayed in several institutions before going to the Catholic-run care home in Fife.

He told how he was groomed by one of the religious brothers, who would tell him he loved him, which “no-one had ever done” before.

Corporate Mainstream Media Back To Beating War Drums For Military Industrial Complex Reader 06/16/2019 (Sun) 08:33:56 Id: 9783d7 [Preview] No. 14903 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
If there were any lingering hopes that the corporate media learned from its role in perpetuating the lies that led to the 2003 invasion of Iraq and would never again help start a Middle East war on the basis of false or flimsy evidence, the headlines that blared across the front pages of major U.S. news websites Thursday night indicated that such hopes were badly misplaced.

The U.S. military late Thursday released blurry, black-and-white video footage that it claimed — without any underlying analysis or further details — to show an Iranian patrol boat removing an unexploded limpet mine from the Japanese-owned Kokuka Courageous, one of the oil tankers damaged in attacks in the Gulf of Oman.

Here's how CNN presented the U.S. military's video: https://youtube.com/watch?v=WFcjzKAcC-c [Embed]

Iran has denied any involvement in the attacks, and Yutaka Katada — the owner of the Kokuka Courageous — contradicted the Trump administration's account during a press conference on Friday.

"Our crew said that the ship was attacked by a flying object," Katada said. "I do not think there was a time bomb or an object attached to the side of the ship."

Independent critics were quick to call for extreme skepticism in the face of U.S. government claims, given the quality of the "evidence" and the warmongering track records of those presenting it.

But the media displayed no such caution.

Just taking a random sample of screenshots after the news broke Thursday night, major outlets largely did the Pentagon's dirty work by posting uncritical headlines that took the claims at face value.

The Washington Post used the word "purported" in its headline, but erroneously reported that the video was taken "before" the explosion on the vessel, not after. The headline was later changed, but was made no more critical of the military's claim.

Freedom Works, Surprise! Marijuana Legalization In Colorado Bringing In Massive Revenues Reader 06/16/2019 (Sun) 08:34:29 Id: 9783d7 [Preview] No.14904 del
Colorado has passed another major marijuana milestone, surpassing $1 billion in state revenue since it legalized the drug in 2014.

Up to May of this year, Statista's Niall McCarthy notes that the state has seen more than $6 billion in total marijuana sales since the industry was given the green light.

According to CNBC, Colorado now has 2,917 licensed marijuana businesses and 41,076 people licensed to work in the industry.

As SafeHaven.com's Alex Kimani notes, marijuana companies face a pretty hostile tax environment.

First off, they are not allowed any tax deductions or credits for business expenses which can mean effective federal tax rates of as high as 90 percent. Hemp producers are luckier since recent changes to the law now allows them to deduct ordinary business expenses for tax purposes on condition that their products contain no more than 0.3 percent THC.

Second, most banks and financial institutions will not touch them with a 10-foot pole, meaning they have to pay their taxes in cash and not through checks or electronic means.

Yet, they continue to tough it out, making an important mark where they are officially recognized. According to the Tax Policy Center, states with marijuana taxes are obligated to put a portion of their funds toward important social programs ranging from education programs in Colorado and Nevada to administrative costs in California and crime reduction in Alaska.

FBI Informs Alex Jones Hackers Planted Child Porn On Infowars Servers Reader 06/16/2019 (Sun) 08:32:47 Id: 03dd14 [Preview] No. 14902 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The FBI has informed Alex Jones someone planted child pornography on the servers for his Infowars website and on Friday the controversial radio host offered a $1 million reward for any information leading to an arrest.

Federal authorities have been conducting a child pornography investigation for several weeks after they reviewed emailed threats made against Jones that contained links to child pornography websites, according to his attorney Norm Pattis.

Pattis appeared on Jones’ show late Friday afternoon to discuss the incident. But before he did Jones went on a five-minute, profanity-laced rant announcing the reward for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of whoever infiltrated the his company’s servers.

“Someone is trying to set me up with child pornography and we’re going to find you,” Jones said.

Pattis said he was notified a few weeks ago by the company that is reviewing all of the emails Infowars receives that there were 12 suspicious ones that appeared to be threats against Jones but actually contained child pornography.

“These were emails that if you, me or one of your workers had opened we would have been subjected to five years in federal prison,” Pattis said.

DOJ's Stunning Inability To Prosecute Its Own Bad Actors Reader 06/16/2019 (Sun) 08:31:53 Id: 979745 [Preview] No. 14901 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
One was caught red-handed engaged in nepotism. Another, a lawyer no less, admitted to shoplifting at a Marine barracks store. A third leaked sealed court information to the news media. And a fourth engaged in fraud by turning a government garage into a personal repair shop.

Four cases, all solved in the past month, with suspects who cost taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars and significant breaches of public trust.

But these weren’t your everyday perps.

All were U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) employees who are supposed to catch other criminals while working for the FBI, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and U.S. attorneys’ offices. Instead, they broke the law or violated the rules. And all managed to escape prosecution, despite their proven transgressions.

Recent Justice Department disciplinary files tell an undeniable story.

Under the leadership of Inspector General (IG) Michael Horowitz, DOJ’s internal watchdog is doing an outstanding job of policing bad conduct inside America’s premier law enforcement agency.

And DOJ is doing a poor job of punishing its own.

In cases closed in the past month, more than a half-dozen FBI, DEA, U.S. attorney and U.S. marshal officials were allowed to retire, do volunteer work, or keep their jobs as they escaped criminal charges that everyday Americans probably would not.

In most instances, the decisions were made by federal prosecutors who work with the very figures impacted by or committing the bad conduct. In local law enforcement, that go-easy phenomenon is known as the “thin blue line.”

Geo-engineering To Produce Mass Food Shortages As Millions of Acres Of US Farmland Destroyed Reader 06/13/2019 (Thu) 18:11:11 Id: 8e7c7b [Preview] No. 14898 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
RELATED: >>>/endpol/1135

It looks like 2019 could be the worst year for U.S. agriculture in modern American history by a very wide margin. As you will see below, millions upon millions of acres of U.S. farmland will go unused this year due to cataclysmic flooding. And many of the farmers that did manage to plant crops are reporting extremely disappointing results. The 12 month period that concluded at the end of April was the wettest 12 month period in U.S. history, and more storms just kept on coming throughout the month of May. And now forecasters are warning of another series of storms this week, and following that it looks like a tropical storm will pummel the region. As Bloomberg has pointed out, we have truly never seen a year like this ever before…

There has never been a spring planting season like this one. Rivers topped their banks. Levees were breached. Fields filled with water and mud. And it kept raining.

Many farmers just kept waiting for the flooding and the rain to end so that they could plant their crops, but that didn’t happen.

At this point it is too late for many farmers to plant crops at all, and it is now being projected that 6 million acres of farmland that is usually used for corn will go completely unsown this year…

And we could actually see even more soybean acres go unplanted, because the latest crop progress report shows that soybean planting is even further behind…

Soybean planting is behind in 16 of the 18 key soybean-producing states, according to the report. So far, just 39% of soybean planting has taken place, compared to the five-year average of 79% by June 2nd, meaning soybean planting is off 50.6%.

And please don’t assume that the acres that have been planted are going to be okay. In Nebraska, farmer Ed Brummels said that conditions are so bad that it is “like we are trying to plant on top of a lake!”…

It’s like we are trying to plant on top of a lake! Planting will be over soon as farmers continue to be frustrated with these very saturated conditions.

IMAGINE MY SHOCK! Venezuelans Now Regret Allowing Government To Take Away Their Guns Reader 06/13/2019 (Thu) 18:10:21 Id: 8dfbbe [Preview] No. 14897 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Not long ago, millions of Venezuelans fell for the oldest trick in the book and voted for a sweet-talking leftist politician who immediately set about dismantling their right to keep and bear arms.

Now that the government has descended into tyranny and turned Venezuela into a socialist hellhole where everyone is starving to death, these same people now regret giving away their right to bear arms in self-defense.

It is an object lesson for the folks here in the U.S. who want to travel down the same path as Venezuela by banning guns and implementing (((socialism))).

Venezuela implemented its gun ban six years ago just before their nation descended into impoverished and lawless chaos. It truly is a living hell and now Venezuelan citizens have no defense against the brutal junta and the (((socialist criminals))) controlling their nation.

As Fox News reported on Friday:

“Guns would have served as a vital pillar to remaining a free people, or at least able to put up a fight,” Javier Vanegas, 28, a Venezuelan teacher of English now exiled in Ecuador, told Fox News. “The government security forces, at the beginning of this debacle, knew they had no real opposition to their force. Once things were this bad, it was a clear declaration of war against an unarmed population.”

Under the direction of then-President Hugo Chavez, the Venezuelan National Assembly in 2012 enacted the “Control of Arms, Munitions and Disarmament Law,” with the explicit aim to “disarm all citizens.” The law took effect in 2013, with only minimal pushback from some pro-democracy opposition figures, banned the legal commercial sale of guns and munitions to all – except government entities.

Naturally, Chavez sponsored a “gun buy-back” program before implementing his confiscation. Few Venezuelans were much interested in the government’s cash. So, by the end of the year, Chavez forcefully seized 12,500 guns. But that was just the start

And when Chavez mercifully died, the country’s next president, Maduro, continued the confiscation policies…

French Government Study Concludes LED Lights Damage Retinals Reader 06/13/2019 (Thu) 15:14:44 Id: 960a12 [Preview] No. 14890 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
LED lights can permanently damage the retina and disturb natural sleep rhythms, France's government-run health watchdog has said.

The French Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health and Safety (ANSES) warned powerful LED lights are 'photo-toxic'.

In a 400-page report, the body cautioned it can cause an irreversible loss of retinal cells and lead to a common cause of blindness.

ANSES urged officials to revise the maximum limit for exposure to LED lights, which emit 'blue light' at much higher quantities.

The report distinguished between acute exposure of high-intensity LED light, and 'chronic exposure' to lower intensity sources.

While less dangerous, even chronic exposure can 'accelerate the ageing of retinal tissue' and contribute to poor vision, the agency said.

Long-lasting, energy efficient and inexpensive, LED technology has gobbled up half of the general lighting market in a decade.

And industry experts predict its share will continue to rise, topping 60 per cent by the end of next year.

They claim newer computer screens don't do damage, but not necessarily true. If you stare at computers all day long, it will do damage over time, it may take many years before you really notice or are highly impacted, but staring at computer screens for many many hours per day is also bad for the eyes. Therefore take lots of extra vitamin supplements, like K2, which is good for eye health. And drink lots of filtered/distilled water. And omega-3 fatty acids.

Also, take breaks from the computer after an hour or so reading news or chatting online. I will typically go outside and pull weeds from my garden, or cook a meal or finish something I need done around the house while taking breaks every now and then. Don't ever stare into a computer screen more than 2 hours at a time, because that is almost certain to damage your eyes.



Debt Insolvency All Time High In America As US Govt Spends Over 3 Trillion This Year Reader 06/13/2019 (Thu) 15:17:54 Id: 68f0b0 [Preview] No. 14892 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
For the first time in the history of the United States, the federal government has spent more than $3 trillion in the first eight months of the fiscal year, according to the Monthly Treasury Statement released today.

The record $3,013,541,000,000 that the federal government spent in October through May of fiscal 2019 was $181,157,920,000 more than the previous record of $2,832,383,080,000 (in constant May 2019 dollars) that the federal government spent in October through May of fiscal 2009.

Even with the second highest tax revenues ever collected in the first eight months of the fiscal year, the federal government still ran a deficit for those eight months of $738,639,000,000.

http://archive.fo/DyMKc

Treasury estimates that the full deficit will exceed $1 trillion by the time the fiscal year wraps up at the end of September.

Spending, in the meantime, rose some $250 billion in comparison with the same period last year, largely in the categories of Social Security and 'health'.

http://archive.fo/Nrvor

During the financial crisis and its aftermath, government spending and debt issuance increased sharply. From 2008 through 2012, Treasury debt outstanding increased by over $8 trillion. This was three times as much as the $2.6 trillion increase during the five years preceding the crisis. After three rounds of QE, the Fed had purchased over $1.9 trillion Treasuries and over $1.7 trillion MBS. At its peak, the Fed owned 19% of all publicly traded U.S. Treasury securities.

Just because something has gone on for what seems to be “forever” does not mean it will continue.

Oy Vey! German Parliament Passes Legislation To Deport Unruly 'Migrants' Reader 06/13/2019 (Thu) 15:16:39 Id: 99ddc8 [Preview] No. 14891 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Named the Orderly Return Law, the new rules will make it easier for the German government to deport failed asylum seekers but does improve rights for those already working in the nation. According to Interior Ministry data, almost half of the planned 188,000 deportations have failed since 2015.

Horst Seehofer, Interior Minister and member of the Christian Social Union, has insisted that the new rules were necessary to make sure deportations did take place.

Speaking in the German Parliament, Mr Seehofer said: “This is a turning point in our migration policy, this migration package creates a set of rules that respects humanity and order.”

His positivity was contrasted by many on the far-left who argued that the new rules were “unconstitutional” and against the rights of the asylum-seekers.

But the new law is also set to improve the labour market for skilled migrants. while those who are yet to get asylum status will be able to stay in the country for the time being as long as they have a job and can speak German.

Previous rules where employers must prove that there was no German or EU citizen available to do the job before employing a migrant have been scrapped.

Former German Social Democrat (SPD) leader Sigmar Gabriel showed his support for the new policies.

Writing a column piece, the former leader wrote: “Mette Frederiksen has shown that the Socialists can win elections if they stand for a clear policy. German comrades are far from it.”

His support comes after his party have fallen in the polls. Their vote collapsed in the EU elections including losing ground in areas it had previously held for 73 years.

Third World USSA: City Water Turns Bright Purple In Ohio, 'Safe' Claim Bureaucrats Reader 06/12/2019 (Wed) 11:53:58 Id: 3c9d5b [Preview] No. 14887 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Residents of Coal Grove, Ohio turned on their faucets Monday to find something unexpected — bright purple water. And city officials claimed it was perfectly safe, once diluted.

No, it was not photoshop or special effects. The city water running from faucets and toilets in Coal Grove really was a regal shade of purple that would have pleased Prince.

According to city officials, the bright purple water was caused by a pump malfunction at the local treatment plant which dumped too much sodium permanganate into the water.

Sodium permanganate is used to remove iron and manganese from water supply by oxidizing it and turning the minerals into larger particles that can be filtered out.

WSAZ-TV reports the city flushed its water system several times Monday, but people are still being told to run the water until the funky color goes away.

Officials were quick to hose down any panic, admitting the purple water might stain your laundry, but claiming that it’s perfectly safe.

“Once it’s diluted out, it’s not dangerous at all,” Stephen Burchett, water treatment plant operator, said.

Would you be happy to drink the bright purple water?

Sodium permanganate, a D001 hazardous ignitable waste "not dangerous at all". Right.
