Russia Hints ISIS-Linked Operating In US Controlled Zones In Syria - Photos Already Show US Protecting Terrorists In Tanf

Previous reports that the United States is protecting and harboring ISIS near its positions in al-Tanf have been given even more credence with the recent statements of the Russian Foreign Minister, Sergei Lavrov.

“We have plenty of reports about strange things happening in the Al-Tanf area,” Sergei Lavrov said on Monday. “This area has no particular military value in terms of fighting terrorism. And in practical terms, we see a rise of presence in the region of militant groups, including those we believe to be connected with Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) in this or that way, including in the Rukban refugee camp.”

“This zone was created under manufactured justification with no military necessity,” he said. “If [the Americans] are arriving at the same conclusions, I expect this to translate into a practical implementation.”

Lavrov pointed out that, while he saw no indications that the U.S. was preparing to withdraw from Tanf, he would welcome their doing so.

Back on March 3, the Russian Defense Minister, Alexander Fomin, said that the United States was using its Special Forces operatives based in al-Tanf near the Iraqi border to create a “reserve for terrorists.”

As al-Masdar News writes,

Despite repeated promises to fully withdraw from their garrison at Al-Tanf, US special forces remain embedded throughout a 55 kilometer by 55 kilometer area throughout the region with recent reports suggesting that an additional six hundred American operatives are to be moved there.

Syrian pro-government forces who attempt to enter the US security perimeter near Al-Tanf are subject to airstrikes by coalition warplanes.

It’s OFFICIAL – Bayer Monsanto Merger Going Through Despite Anti-Trust Law

The US Department of Justice, once considered the office that would protect the American economy from the fatal cancer of monopoly, has now officially become the office that facilitates monopoly through legal loopholes.

It’s hard to argue with the consistency of the DOJ, though, since the office has done nothing to prevent monopolies from taking shape and has sat back and watched while Free Trade folly and fascism have grown to a level never before seen in America. At least the DOJ knows the law so, in that sense, it’s the perfect office to sell Americans down the river.

Of course, selling Americans down the river is exactly what the DOJ has done and, if the new merger between Bayer and Monsanto is any inclination, that river will be so polluted, it will be safer to drink from the water fountains at the Daichii nuclear reactor plant.

As RT reports,

The US Department of Justice has reached a settlement that would allow Bayer AG’s $66 billion takeover of Monsanto Co, requiring the German company to sell $9 billion in agricultural assets first.

The merger as initially proposed would have harmed consumers and farmers by eliminating competition, the DOJ said. However, the Trump administration is satisfied with the terms of the settlement announced Tuesday.

Canada has never been one for Free Speech but the last few years have become incredibly more oppressive in terms of what is allowed to be said and who is allowed to say it. We could write a lot of things about the hypocrisy of claiming to be “free” and “tolerant” while censoring and punishing certain speech and rewarding others but at least Canada is as consistent as a country can be when it tries to crush free thought and expression.

The latest victim of Canada’s “Democracy” and “tolerance” is Halifax chiropractor Dr. Dena Churchill who is now being “investigated” (translate persecuted) by “regulatory authorities” for speaking out about the dangers of vaccines.

Dr. Churchill operates Oxfor Chiropractic Inc. and is an author, public speaker and blogger at the website DrSexyMom.

On her website and her personal facebook page Dr. Churchill has repeatedly posted material discussing the negative side effects of vaccines such as autism, a link which has been repeatedly demonstrated.

As a result, John Sutherland, the Executive Director of the Nova Scotia College of Chiropractors has confirmed that a formal complaint has been filed by the college’s Registrar against Dr. Churchill.

New Utah Vaccine Law – Unvaccinated Students Will Be Expelled

New Utah Vaccine Law - Unvaccinated Students Will Be ExpelledBrandon Turbeville

Vaccine Nazis may not be big on rights but they are great at propaganda and using the law to eliminate individual choice. In fact, they have Constitution shredding down to an art. What they can’t achieve in massive assaults on personal rights, they attempt to achieve through baby steps.

Case in point, take a look at Utah. Fresh on the heels of passing a “free range parenting” law that explicitly states that children cannot be removed from the home or the parents arrested for allowing their children to play outside (yes, that law actually needed to be passed in 2018 America), Utah has also passed a law further encroaching on a parents’ rights not to vaccinate their child.

HB 308, signed into law in 2017 by Governor Gary Herbert, has changed the vaccine rules for Utah students. Beginning July 1, 2018, students who are not vaccinated will only be admitted into to school for 21 days on a conditional basis. After 21 days, the unvaccinated student will be expelled unless vaccinated or a valid exemption is presented.

Those parents who are looking to obtain an exemption will have to complete an “online education module” no doubt produced in the style of the 1950’s Red Scare telling them all about deadly pandemics hiding under every bed and Russian anti vaxxer bots working tirelessly to destroy the fabric of America. Parents who refuse will be required to have an “in-person consultation with a public health official.”

In other words, parents who choose to exercise their rights will be bullied and threatened into vaccinating their children. If parents still refuse, they will forced to sit through a re-education film. If they refuse further still, they will be confronted (the greatest fear of some) by an “official” aka an “authority.” All for exercising ones basic rights, parents will now be forced to sit in an interrogation room with an “authority figure” a la O’Brien out of George Orwell’s 1984. Depending on your region, your experience may range from Orwellian intimidation to comedic stupidity, and thus O’Brien may resemble the Postmaster General from Seinfeld more than the deviant genius of the Orwell book. But the general message is the same – vaccinate or you will have to come face to face with the “authorities” and explain yourself.

US Warns Of 'Firm' Response If Syria Attacks ISIS . . . No, Really

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
May 28, 2018

In an apparent attempt to remove all pretense that the United States is nothing more than al-Qaeda’s Air Force in Syria, the American government is warning its Syrian counterpart that, if the SAA moves ahead with its upcoming southern offensive to remove ISIS and al-Qaeda terrorists from its southern borders, the U.S. will take “firm and appropriate measures.

In other words, the United States is telling Syria that it had better not attack ISIS forces or else. Indeed, American “Firm and appropriate measures” seems like a very thinly veiled threat of military action particularly since the United States seems incapable of taking any “measures” that aren’t “kinetic” in nature outside of its borders.

After liberating the Yarmouk camp south of Damascus and quickly liberating a stretch of territory between Homs and Aleppo, the Syrian military is building up forces in the south of the country in a much anticipated move to liberate Daraa and the surrounding areas bordering with Jordan and the Israeli occupied Golan.

Of course, while no one who has been following the Syrian crisis would be surprised that the nation who funded, organized, trained, armed, and directed terrorist forces in Syria (including ISIS), would do whatever it could to protect its proxy army, it is rather surprising to see the U.S. government so openly state that ISIS terrorists are “off limits” and to do away with even the formalities of pretending that it wants to see Daesh destroyed.

As al-Masdar News reports,

The US State Department issued a statement late Friday saying it was “concerned” by leaflets, which were reportedly dropped by government aircraft in the province of Daraa.

Whole Foods Quietly Halts GMO Labeling Requirements

May 28, 2018

A year after Whole Foods was acquired by internet retail giant Amazon, the food company is backing off its commitment to ensuring that food suppliers inform the consumer and the store itself if their food products contain GMOs.

There is some confusion about the decision by Whole Foods to walk back on its commitment but one thing is for sure – it is walking back.

It an email sent by Whole Foods President and Chief Operations Officver A.C. Gallo announced that the company is pausing its GMO Food labeling requirements. The requirements, which were scheduled to take effect on September 1, would have required that suppliers disclose on their packaging whether or not their products contained genetically modified ingredients. The requirements, which were announced five years ago, were three months away from being implemented.

As Business Insider reports,

In a copy of the announcement obtained by The New Food Economy, Gallo and two vice presidents write that the pause is a response to suppliers' concerns about having to comply with two competing sets of rules: Whole Foods' own GMO labeling requirements, and rules newly proposed by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), which are currently open for public comment.

"As the USDA finalizes the federal regulation in the coming months and the food industry assesses the impact, we do not want our Policy to pose further challenges for you and your business," the letter reads.

Low Grade Inflammation Decreases Emotional Recognition – Vaccine Model Of Inflammation

Low Grade Inflammation Decreases Emotional Recognition - Vaccine Model of InflammationBrandon Turbeville

May 28, 2018

A recent study published in the journal Brain, Behavior, and Immunity, on May 6, 2018, entitled,
"Low-grade inflammation decreases emotion recognition – Evidence from the vaccination model of inflammation" has demonstrated yet another danger of vaccination in how it relates to the brain. To be clear, this study was not conducted to determine the relationship between vaccination and negative health effects but the results point to those dangers nonetheless.

This is because of the effects that inflammation has on the mental state of the person suffering from it. The connection between vaccination comes because vaccines are well known to cause inflammation in recipients, particularly children, that ranges from the moderate levels to outright fatal. Indeed, this inflammation side effect is the reason why researchers used vaccinations to induce inflammation in male test subjects during the course of the experiment.

The researchers write,

The ability to adequately interpret the mental state of another person is key to complex human social interaction. Recent evidence suggests that this ability, considered a hallmark of ‘theory of mind’ (ToM), becomes impaired by inflammation. However, extant supportive empirical evidence is based on experiments that induce not only inflammation but also induce discomfort and sickness, factors that could also account for temporary social impairment. Hence, an experimental inflammation manipulation was applied that avoided this confound, isolating effects of inflammation and social interaction.

The research team ultimately concluded that the study they conducted supports the hypothesis that “immune activation” impairs “theory of mind.” They write,

A 46 year old school groundskeeper is now at the forefront of the fight against Monsanto, despite the fact that he may not have much longer to live. DeWayne Johnson is doing everything he can to survive but the odds are not in his favor. Still, as a husband and a father in California, he is trying to stay alive long enough to at least see Monsanto be forced to reckon with the fact that one of the world’s most evil corporations is responsible for his condition.

Already, Johnson will be the first person to actually take Monsanto to trial over allegations that its herbicide Roundup causes cancer but that the corporation spent decades attempting to hide the fact that it is responsible for the disease.

The Guardian reports,

According to the court record, Johnson had a job as a groundskeeper for the Benicia unified school district where he applied numerous treatments of Monsanto’s herbicides to school properties from 2012 until at least late 2015. He was healthy and active before he got the cancer diagnosis in August 2014. In a January deposition, Johnson’s treating physician testified that more than 80% of his body was covered by lesions, and that he probably had but a few months to live. Johnson has improved since starting a new drug treatment in November but remains too weak sometimes to even speak or get out of bed, his attorneys and doctors state in court filings.

But while Monsanto insists its chemical is safe enough to drink, Johnson’s case has received a green light from Judge Curtis Karnow who issued an order allowing jurors to consider both the scientific evidence as to what may have caused Johnson’s cancer and whether or not Monsanto supprssed that evidence. Karnow ruled that the trial will move ahead and that the jury would be allowed to consider punitive damages.

Poem - All The Murdered Daisies

All The Murdered Daisies

Martha, you are gentle
Holding daisies by the doorway
Behind you the little screen
Showing Damascus awash in bullets
I would take a picture here
Had you not blinked from the sounds
Drowning out the song of your birds
Who would land on your balcony in the early morning
To await your feed
Light near your hand and
Force themselves not to come closer
The sparrow you saved
Blind in one eye, lived his life in your room

Now, I, long past the airport
Turn to my own little screen
Showing your brothers dying
Your sisters’ blood spilling over
Martha, I told you to pray for your people
I will pray for mine
We were caught in a pendulum of opposites
Though you were
split by the swing
I am awaiting its return
When your people may pity me
I am sorry, Martha
I was sleeping late
There was no time for kindness

'7 Countries In 5 Years:" 2007 Wesley Clark Interview Reveals US Plan To Go To War With Iraq, Iran, Syria, Libya, Lebanon, Somalia, And Sudan

May 23, 2018

After the scrapping of the Iran nuclear deal by the Trump administration, the re-imposition of sanctions against the Persian nation, and the threat to impose the “toughest sanctions in history,” the US gear up to destabilize or perhaps even go to war with Iran is becoming more and more visible by the day. A war of words between Iran and the United States is now ensuing with actual military aggression against Iran by Israel in Syria is promising to provide an even greater likelihood that the U.S. military and America’s busy intelligence community will soon be working even harder to ensure that Iran is no longer able to resist Atlanticist hegemony.

However, the plan to destroy Iran is nothing new as anyone who has been following the US war machine can easily attest to.

For those who are unaware as to the recent history of the American plan to destroy Iran in the same manner as Afghanistan, Libya, and Iraq (and attempted against Syria), it is important to mention a 2007 interview with US General Wesley Clark who, during the course of a talk with Amy Goodman of Democracy Now, revealed a Pentagon plan to destroy Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Iran. Clark revealed his shock and surprise at a plan to not only invade Iraq after 9/11 but also to invade seven countries within five years.

Wesley Clark, of course, was no conspiracy theorist. He's also not peace activist. Remember, he was a retired 4-star general and was the former Supreme Allied Commander of NATO during the devastating 1999 war against Yugoslavia where he personally ordered attacks on civilian targets.

Clark's statements are yet more evidence that the plan to go to war with Iraq, Iran, Libya, and Syria is not some recent creation but a carefully constructed scheme thought out years ago and one that is proceeding according to plan.

US, French, UK, Establish More Bases In Syria To Push Breakup Of Country

As virtually all pretense of leaving Syria has vanished from the rhetoric of the White House, American and French soldiers have now moved into Kurdish held territory in Northern Syria near Manbij in an effort to prevent Turkish military operations aimed at clearing the Kurds from the border area as well as any Syrian attempt to liberate Northern Syria from Turkish terrorists.

The United States has established at least two new bases in the area near Manbij and French Special Forces have been deployed alongside the Americans.

If there was any belief that America was planning to leave Syria, that belief should now be dispelled. This is not an exit strategy, it is an occupation. It is also an attempt to solidify the “federalization” of Syria through foreign military forces acting as a deterrent to liberation.

Early on, it was reported by sources within the Kurdish/jihadist SDF that French forces were moving about in SDF territory. Shortly after those reports, photos were acquired by Sputnik that showed not only French but American forces working together in SDF territory. The photo showed two armored vehicles with military personnel in and next to them, one with a French flag and one with a US flag. The picture was taken in the area of the Sajur River in the Manbij area.

According to a senior member of the Military Council of Manbij cited by Sputnik, about 50 French soldiers were stationed in the area. On April 5, it was reported that French military forces were busy constructing a military base in the north of Manbij.

Aluminum Vaccine Adjuvants Linked To Autism Behavior In Mice Study

Aluminum Vaccine Adjuvants Linked to Autism Behavior in Mice StudyBrandon Turbeville

Vaccine Nazis and Big Pharma are having a bad science year. As more and more non-industry-funded studies are conducted regarding the safety and effectiveness of vaccines, Big Pharma and its storm troopers are proven more and more to have been bullying and propagandizing the general public to inject harmful and largely useless substances into their bodies for decades.

Recently, I wrote an article regarding a study that was conducted in 2016 demonstrating that aluminum adjuvants in vaccines caused neuroinflammation and autoimmune reactions as well as subsequent behavioral changes in mice.

Now, however, a study conducted in April, 2018 entitled “Is exposure to aluminium adjuvants associated with social impairments in mice? A pilot study,” and published in the Journal of Inorganic Biochemistry, has demonstrated a link between aluminum adjuvants and Autism Spectrum Disorder.

According to the study authors, “Our group has shown that significant correlations exist between rates of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and total aluminum adjuvants given to children through vaccines in several Western countries. Those correlations satisfied eight out of nine Hill criteria for causality.”

Previous research has repeatedly shown that “postnatal exposure to aluminum” causes a “range of behavioral abnormalities in young mice.” The researchers point out that “anomalies in social interaction are a key characteristic of those with ASD.”

In their conclusion, the researchers added that more research should be conducted. However, they ultimately concluded that aluminum was linked to symptoms that are hallmarks of ASD. They wrote, “Previous work has linked aluminium exposure to ASD. Social interaction deficits are one of the three core symptoms of ASD. To our knowledge, our current results represent the first study on social behaviour in mice after early exposure to aluminium adjuvants. We found that aluminium impairs social interaction in mice in some instances."

Cholera Vaccine Not As Effective As Claimed, Here’s The Real Reason Disease Went Down

Additionally, the cholera attack rate of the nonvaccinated group was overestimated.

It has long been known that clean water and sanitation lead to better health among the human population. However, vaccine nazis have for just as long attempted to deny the correlation and argue that the increase standards of public health were due to vaccines. Among unbiased researchers, however, that perception cannot help but go unchallenged.

In 2016, a number of researchers wrote to The American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene to question the effectiveness of the oral cholera vaccine deployed in Haiti. To be clear, the researchers were not questioning the safety of the vaccine or vaccines in general but that the effectiveness of the vaccine had been overestimated by previous research teams.

Their argument was that the vaccine was tested alongside increased sanitation practices, possibly over-inflating the success rate of the shot. They argued that the vaccine should have been tested and evaluated by itself.

The researchers wrote:
Oral cholera vaccination (OCV) has been validated by the World Health Organization (WHO) as a valuable tool to complement water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) activities in cholera prevention for high-risk areas and populations.1 We read with great interest the recent study published by Sévère and others,2 which evaluated the effectiveness of a mass OCV campaign targeting approximately 70,000 inhabitants in several slums of Port-au-Prince, Haiti, between April and June 2012. The authors reported a 75% vaccine coverage and, using a cohort design, a striking 97.5% vaccine effectiveness in the 37 months postvaccination, whereas controlled clinical trials have measured OCV vaccine efficacy around 57% [95% confidence interval, 44–67%] during the first 2 years.3 Although it was expected that 56% of cholera cases would occur among vaccinated individuals according to the WHO screening method,4 the same proportion was 5% in the Sévère and others cohort.

Russia's Relationship With Israel And The S-300 Controversy

May 17, 2018

Ever since the Israeli-Syrian skirmish (falsely reported as an Israeli-Iranian clash in Syria by the mainstream press), questions have been circulating about what this means for Syria, Israel, Iran and the region, even the rest of the world. Was the retaliation by Syria all that was needed to finally make Israel understand that there might be consequences for its actions? Is this the beginning of a wider war between the two? What will be the response of the United States? The response of Russia?

While a full-on military conflict between Syria and Israel did not happen in the hours after the missiles ceased firing, it was announced by the Russians that Russia would not be sending its famed S-300s to Syria. This was despite a warning by the Russians earlier that the previous U.S. missile strikes against Syria removed all “moral hurdles” previously in Russia’s way to do so. The new Russian announcement seemed to coincide with a trip to Russia made by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who has been campaigning against a transfer of those air defense missile systems for quite some time. As a result, many have been wondering whether or not Russia is going back on its support of Syria or if it is becoming infected with the virus that has made the United States exist in a symbiotic relationship with Israel. Indeed, this one announcement is leading many to question Russia’s entire relationship with Israel.

The S-300 Issue

There are several questions surrounding the announcement that the Russians would not be sending Syria its S-300 air defense missile system. Among those questions are “Why did the Russians decide not to do so? Do the Syrians already have the missiles? Does the truth lie somewhere in between?”

Only a month after a teacher in Idaho teacher allegedly fed a live puppy to a snapping turtle in front of his class, yet another public school teacher has caused a controversy by torturing an animal to death in front of students by slowly drowning them in a garbage can full of water. This time, the psychopath in question resides in Florida and the incident at Forest High School in Marion County was caught on camera. The victims were two raccoons and an opossum.

An investigation is now underway after a student brought home a video recording of the incident that the students were forced to participate in. The students’ mother said that the student came home in tears over being forced to take part in the murder.

Apparently, the raccoons were blamed for killing chickens being raised by the agricultural class. The teacher trapped the racoons in a wire cage. He then filled a large garbage can with water and lowered the raccoons into the water-filled can. As the raccoons struggled to get their heads above water in order to breathe, the teacher and his students held them down with metal rods.

An opossum was later found (not blamed for killing chickens) and was killed for sport. 

The students were forced to take part and anyone who refused was threatened with a “referral,” which means punishment.

"It made me sick. It made me sick to my stomach. It's terrible. It still does make me sick to my stomach," the woman said.

As vaccine nazis and the Big Pharma corporations repeatedly claim that there is no evidence to show that vaccines are harmful, the science doing just that continues to quietly be published and subsequently ignored by the fanatics determined to push vaccinations on the general public, individual choice be damned.

Many of the studies demonstrating the dangers of vaccines are predictably buried and ignored by the mainstream outlets and, while some are advertised in the alt media, many more simply appear in medical journals never to be seen again.

One such study, “Behavioral abnormalities in female mice following administration of aluminum adjuvants and the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine Gardasil,” published in Immunologic Research in 2016 has also received little attention.

However, this study is important because it demonstrates a potential link between the Gardasil vaccine and neuroinflammation and autoimmune reactions as well as subsequent behavioral changes.

The study was focused on investigating the link between adverse effects and vaccine adjuvants. The study acknowledges the deceptive practice undertaken by most human vaccine trials of using aluminum adjuvants as a placebo in an effort to mask the actual negative effects of the vaccine in the results of the trial. This study attempted to look at the adjuvants when measured by a true placebo.

The trial was conducted on mice using Gardasil, Garadasil + Pertussis toxin, al hydroxide, or “vehicle control” in amounts that would be equal to those given to humans.

Arctic Apples are fruit that has been genetically modified not to brown when they are cut. Because the genetic modification process is what prevents the browning, these apples are now being sold on places like Amazon as “preservative free.” In addition, they are being sold without disclosing the fact that they are genetically engineered.

The United States does not require labeling of GMOs so there is nothing illegal about selling food products without disclosing GM elements. The apples are tellingly only being sold in the U.S., a country that is fast becoming the most toxic food supply in the world outside of China.

But while it may not be illegal, selling GM Arctic Apples could very well be dangerous and it is a violation of a consumers’ right to know if they are purchasing a product that could harm their health.

GM Arctic Apples have not been properly safety tested and regulators in the United States have yet to assess the health or environmental risks of the genetic engineering process used to produce the apples. Of course, we all know that U.S. regulators are not going to have a problem with any genetically engineered food product as they have essentially acted as Monsanto’s errand boys for years.

Still, for those who may be concerned, consumers should be aware that the Arctic Apples are created by using a “gene-slicing technique called RNAi or RNA interference. Independent scientists warn that products engineered using RNAi might silence the genes or otherwise affect the gene expression of non-target organisms. In this case, non-target organisms include humans who eat the apples.”

GM Watch has requested that reader who are concerned over the unlabeled GM products leave a comment on the product page demanding that Amazon properly inform consumers what they are purchasing.

Time marches on but it seems that every day the United States seems to be moving backward, particularly with how it treats its most vulnerable. This applies not only to humans to but to animals as well. With reports such as those coming out of Idaho where a science teacher fed a live puppy to a snapping turtle in front of his class to the halls of the USDA itself, animal cruelty is becoming a sanctioned behavior so long as it is done in the name of food, entertainment, or in the name of the new religion of “science” – all three things Americans have gorged themselves on for the last two and a half decades.

Now, reports that the USDA is killing hundreds of kittens at its test lab in Prince George County Maryland have drawn the ire of a Michigan Congressman.

Congressman Mike Biship of Michigan announced that he has sent a letter to the Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue in order to express his concerns about the activities of the Beltville USDA lab.

Bishop stated in his letter that hundreds of kittens are bred for testing, fed parasite-infected raw meat for a number of weeks, and then killed by “incineration.” According to Bishop, the USDA admits that the kittens are even healthy at the end of the experiment.

Let that sink in. The USDA is conducted years worth of seemingly useless experiments on kittens. When the experiment is finished, the healthy kittens are then apparently burned to death by the researchers."

Trump's Pull Out Of Nuclear Deal Was Planned From The Beginning - One Step Closer To The "Path To Persia," War With Iran

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
May 9, 2018

On Tuesday, May 8, U.S. President Donald Trump announced that the United States will be pulling out of the “Iran Nuclear Deal” which was struck under the Obama administration, a deal that he has repeatedly called a “bad deal” and even “the single worst deal I’ve ever seen drawn by anybody.”

“The so-called Iran deal was supposed to protect the United States and our allies from the lunacy of an Iranian nuclear bomb, a weapon that will only endanger the survival of the Iranian regime,” the President said. “In fact, the deal allowed Iran to continue enriching uranium and over time reach the brink of a nuclear breakout.”

He added that “Today, we have definitive proof that this Iranian promise was a lie.”

Yet there is absolutely no evidence to back Trump up on his claims. Even Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and the Director of National Intelligence Daniel Coats have stated that Iran is living up to its commitments. Still, Trump has argued in the past that, while Iran may be sticking to its commitments, it is violating the “spirit” of the agreement by “fostering discord” in the region.

This is highly ironic considering that the United States is the single biggest fosterer of discord in the Middle East alongside Israel. It’s also false that Iran is “fostering discord” and that it is not living up to its end of the deal. It should also be pointed out that Iran was doing nothing wrong in terms of its nuclear program before the deal and should never have been bullied into signing it to begin with.

Now, a sovereign country who has a right to pursue a nuclear energy program is being told by aggressive nuclear states that it cannot be allowed to be armed in the same manner, develop an adequate energy program, or defend itself against the aggression of the very states marching across the region and repeatedly stating their desire to overthrow, destabilize, or invade Iran.

Partly a result in the decrease in government funding in innovation, health, science, and general development and partly a result of the close connection between major corporations, government, and academia, there has been a major increase in the “financial partnerships” between universities and Big Pharma over the past several years. Once a relatively rare occurrence, Big Pharma/Big Ed partnerships have become a common sight, with many corporations maintaining massive “integrated programs” and “science hubs” in university institutions. The focus of these programs are not necessarily public health but the development of drugs for Big Pharma profits.

GlaxoSmithKline at Harvard, AstraZeneca at the University of Washington, and Pfizer at the University of California are some of the most glaring examples, but they are by no means even the tip of the iceberg in Big Pharma/Big Ed partnerships. As writes in its article “Big Pharma Pays Universities For Most Medical Research In the United States,

In fact, with the increasing financial ties between academia and the pharmaceutical industry, many drug companies have formed specialized divisions that are solely responsible for seeking research and development relationships with academic institutions.

One such reason for a greater reliance on Big Pharma for research money is the decline in interest of the U.S. government to fund projects that would theoretically benefit human health and increase living standards through progress and development. For instance, a report in the British Medical Journal stated that “An estimated 60% of biomedical research and development in the United States is now privately funded, and two thirds of academic institutions have equity ties with outside sponsors.” In other words, over half of the medical research conducted at universities is conducted with funding from Big Pharma itself.

China No Longer Accepting World’s Garbage, Time For A National Recycling Program

China No Longer Accepting World's Garbage, Time for A National Recycling ProgramBrandon Turbeville

In 2017, China announced that it would no longer be accepting much of the world’s trash in the coming year. In January, it followed through with that announcement and stopped accepting 24 types of waste which includes plastics, mining slap, garbage textiles, and plastics. China’s stated reason for no longer accepting the waste is its own concerns over pollution domestically.

This new policy has caused shockwaves in the United States, Ireland, Germany, Canada, and a number of European countries who are now rushing to figure out a solution to their growing piles of trash that had previously just been sent overseas.

If sanity were to prevail of course, the United States and fellow countries would immediately begin developing methods of recycling and industries/services to do just that domestically. A national recycling program would be a perfect solution that would not only recycle the material that is now piling up but also clean up the American environment and create good paying jobs. In other words, a national recycling program funded by low to zero percent interest credit from a nationalized Federal Reserve that would see the entire country's garbage recycled and sold at a profit as well as the recycling of material already buried in landfills.

Instead, however, the United States is attempting to force China to accept its trash by using the World Trade Organization’s enforcement mechanism for the “Free Trade” and the “Global Economy” that has ruined the living standards of virtually every country that has embraced it. The U.S. is arguing that China’s new policy is causing a “fundamental disruption in global supply chains for scrap materials.”

Why Millennials Have Way More In Common With Their Grandparents’ Generation

Millennials are Behaving More and More Like Their Grandparents…

Millennials, once considered the most rebellious of all generations, are confounding their parents’ generation and onlookers yet again with the newfound realization that the current generation has more in common with their grandparents than their parents.

As Katherine Martinko writes in her article, “Millennials Are Behaving More Like Their Grandparents,”

Young people’s interest in ‘healthy, clean living’ has them cooking, crafting, and counting their pennies in ways that baffle their Boomer parents. 
Young people are not the wild whippersnappers they used to be, according to an amusing article in the Wall Street Journal. While their parents would have been chugging beers, microwaving pizzas, and watching soap operas, this next generation of adults is more inclined to sip non-alcoholic beverages on a Saturday night, eat fennel instead of fries, and participate in hot yoga and terrarium-building classes for entertainment. 
It’s a curious change in habits for an age group that has long been associated with rebellion and pushing limits, but one that Alison Angus, an analyst for Euromonitor, says reflects young people’s desire “to assert control and find comfort in an unstable world.” Angus said: 
“They feel they can make a difference, and this influences their spending choices. This means more saying no: no to alcohol; no to unhealthy habits; no to animal-based products and, increasingly, no to unmeasured or uninformed spending.”

Israel Setting The Stage To Attack Iran Over Phony Claims Of Iranian Missile Threats

Over the past several days, Israel has been throwing its typical series of fits and tantrums both to its patron in Washington and to the “international community” that Iran may finally have the gall to defend itself. Of course, Iran’s possible actions are not presented as self-defense but as unjustified aggression and “hatred” of the settler state. Israel is typically declaring its right to “defend itself” but, in reality, that “defense” is  nothing more than another act of offense in a long line of offenses against Iran.

Israeli media is now boosting up the idea that Iran is planning to launch missiles at Jerusalem as well as a coordinated attack against Israel with Hezbollah and “Shiites” in Syria as revenge for the numerous illegal attacks against Iran that Israel has undertaken in Syria over the last seven years.

One need only take a look at a recent article published in the Jerusalem Post to see a sampling of what Israeli media and the Israeli government are attempting to get across in terms of laying the groundwork for a “pre-emptive” strike on Iran. The article reads,

Israel is bracing for a barrage of missiles to be launched toward military positions along its northern front from Syria by Shi’ite militias trained and funded by Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps. 
Iran is reportedly very determined to carry out an attack. Intelligence reports have indicated such an attack is in the advanced planning stages and might soon be executed as Iran vowed to do in retaliation for an alleged Israeli air strike against the T4 airbase near Homs used by the IRGC two months ago.

Israel has allegedly uncovered involvement by Hezbollah commanders and senior operatives from Shi’ite militias in the planning of the retaliatory strike. It is believed these militias, along with experts from Hezbollah under the command of the IRGC’s Quds Force Commander Maj.-Gen. Qassem Soleimani, will launch precision-guided missiles or armed drones from a base in Syria. 

U.S, France Setting The Stage For Another False Flag Chem Attack In Syria To Justify More Bombing

As Israel sets the stage for a possible attack on Iranian forces inside Syria under the false pretext of “pre-emptive” self-defense against Iranian missiles, it appears that the United States and France are attempting to set a stage of their own. This stage, however, will be the same tired scene replayed repeatedly throughout the Syrian crisis – i.e. the alleged deployment of chemical weapons that will be blamed on the Syrian government in order to justify more airstrikes and missiles against the Syrian government and in defense of terrorist elements backed by the United States, Britain, and France.

Signs are now pointing toward the possibility that there is yet another chemical weapons propaganda ploy being set up in Syria in much the same way as the recent and now-debunked Douma chemical attacks were created and propagated throughout Western media.

Russian outlet Sputnik International, citing an unnamed source, has reported that,

"US security services are planning provocations with the use of prohibited substances in Syria. The operation is led by a former militant of the Islamic State *[Daesh], Mishan Idris Hamash. The aim is to stage a chemical attack against civilians to be further spread in the media," the source told Sputnik.

According to the source, the preparations began on April 23. The civilians are being shipped to a territory near Jafra oil field to participate in a staged filming of an attack scene.

Although based on one source, it should be noted that France is now making statements similar to those it made in the run-up to the staged Douma chemical weapons attack where it announced that if Bashar al-Assad used chemical weapons, France would take action.

"The goal of the strike against Syria was to prevent Bashar Assad from repeating such attack. If this happens, we can consider the possibility of repeated strikes," French Defense Minister Florence Parley said.

2005: CNN Host Christiane Amanpour Tells Assad US Looking For New Syrian Leader, Supporting "Opposition," Preparing Coup

By now, it is common knowledge among researchers and journalists focused on the Syrian crisis that the plan to destroy the Syrian government was not merely hatched in 2011 at the beginning of the physical crisis itself, but that it was part of a much older plan to eliminate all resistance to the world finance oligarchy. Indeed, not only did the plan go back further than 2011, its beginnings could be seen going all the way back to the 1980s.

One window into the coming destabilization came two years after the United States had invaded and destroyed Iraq for the same reason. Notoriously pro-war propagandist Christiane Amanpour sat down for an interview with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, during the course of which she alluded to the fact that the United States was planning on his overthrow.

CA: Mr. President, you know the rhetoric of “regime change” is headed towards you from the United States. They are actively looking for a new Syrian leader. They’re granting visas and visits to Syrian opposition politicians. They’re talking about isolating you diplomatically and perhaps a coup de’ tat, or your regime crumbling. What are you thinking about that?

BA: I feel very confident, for one reason. Because I was made in Syria. I wasn’t made in the United States. So I’m not worried. This is [a] Syrian decision. It should be made by the Syrian people. Nobody else in this world. So, we don’t discuss it in Syria.

CA: What would happen, do you think, if there was an alternative to you? Who is the alternative to you?

BA: It could be any Syrian. Any national Syrian. And we have a lot. I’m not the only person who’s eligible to be President. We have a lot of Syrians. So we don’t have any problem about that. But no Syrian would be able to be President if he’s made anywhere outside our borders. This is a Syrian principle. [emphasis added]

Australian Government and Press Ignore “Hands Off Syria” Anti-War Rally In Melbourne

As the Australian government continues to support the war on Syria and the secular government of Bashar al-Assad, even supporting America's recent missile strikes on Syria in defense of al-Qaeda, it is proving that while it may be listening to big business, the United States, and the international Deep State, it is not listening to the very people it is claiming that it wants to defend.

Indeed, in the lead-up to the American strikes, Australia joined in with its other imperialist counterparts to demand sympathy for the alleged victims of an alleged chemical weapons attack that allegedly took place. Bombing of course was conducted before the OPCW inspectors could enter Douma but the cries from governments were of the same narrative that has been played for the last seven years - Assad is killing his own people and the world needs to stop him.

The narrative suggests that the Syrian people are being slaughtered en masse by Assad (for reasons never fully explained by the mainstream media) and that all Syrians are terrified of the government, cheering on the moderate cannibals of America's expeditionary revolution forces. But one trip to Syria will prove that narrative wrong at least, since traveling through the country one will find overwhelming support for the Syrian government. Indeed, when I traveled to Syria in 2017, I did not meet one person who supported the terrorists and everyone I spoke to supported the Syrian government, even those who had disagreements with the government prior to the war. For them, it is not even a choice of which side is better, it is a choice between death and survival. The Syrian government and, yes, Bashar al-Assad himself, represent survival, normalcy, and secularism. America's terrorists represent death, Sharia law, and unimaginable savagery.

This is the same experience others have had when traveling to Syria as well. I highly recommend reading the work of Vanessa Beeely, Patrick Henningsen, Eva Bartlett, Janice Kortkamp, Pearson Sharp, and Tim Anderson for starters.

Nevertheless, when traveling to Syria and speaking to Syrians, Western mainstream media consistently claim that the Syrians independent media journalists speak to are "afraid of being killed by Assad" or that the journalists themselves are being accompanied by security forces who force the civilians to repeat the government line. This is not the case at all as I myself was free to roam the streets of each city I visited at any hour, unaccompanied, and speak to anyone I wished to speak to. Still, they all said the same thing.

The Paradox Of War In A 'Wonderful World' - Syria Continues To Fight, Live, And Love

Janice Kortkamp
May 2, 2018

"Why Janice, why? Why are they doing this to us?"asked my dear friend, a Syrian mother whose son died in the Syrian Army fighting against terrorists. She has two other sons, both in the Army.

As we were speaking together a young lady approached us. She'd heard our conversation and wanted to share her story. She comes from a Christian village near Idlib which has been under constant threat and attack by terrorist groups directly supported by the US. I will be researching the tragedies suffered there to share in another post.

Also there was another young lady celebrating her 22nd birthday. My friend and I offered her congratulations and then shared her birthday cake. She also came over for a chat. She studies in university in Lebanon but asked as her birthday gift to come back to Damascus where she hadn't been since before the war.

"Why now?" I asked though I knew the answer. Because the mortars and rockets, car and suicide bombs, kidnappings etc have stopped since the victories over the terrorist groups in eastern Ghouta/Douma.

Terrorist groups, yes again, called "moderates" and directly supported by the US and allies.

For seven years Damascus has been so terribly dangerous when before the war Syria was the fifth safest country in the world according to Gallup polls.

Obama's "moderates" from the very beginning rampaged through the beautiful city. Gangs kidnapped people at random for money. The US backed Free Syrian Army would just go into people's homes and at gunpoint force them to leave then took up residence. They in turn would often get forced out by the Syrian Army but the fleeing terrorists would first plant booby trap bombs in refrigerators and other items in hopes to massacre the returning home owners. Suicide and car bombings were common like the shrapnel-filled mortars and rockets that hit the city routinely.

The Only Legitimate US Policy on Syria Would Be Complete Withdrawal - Author

Sputnik International
April 18, 2018
Brandon Turbeville Interview with Sputnik International

Washington is determined to maintain control over northern Syria, currently held by the US-backed Kurdish militia. Donald Trump is seeking to shift the burden of military responsibility onto Arab states, which means that the US occupation of Syrian territories will continue, American author Brandon Turbeville has told Sputnik.
"The only legitimate Syria policy on the part of the United States is the immediate and complete withdrawal of all military forces from Syria, as well as an immediate end to the funding, training, and directing any and all terrorists or so-called 'opposition forces' in the country," Brandon Turbeville, the author of seven books, one of them being "The Road To Damascus: The Anglo-American Assault on Syria," told Sputnik.

On March 29, US President Donald Trump dropped the hint about the withdrawal "very soon" of US troops from Syria. Following the US-led coalition's April 14 joint strike on Syria, the White House reiterated Trump's pledge in response to French President Emmanuel Macron's assumption that he had managed to convince his American counterpart to stay in the region.
However, the Wall Street Journal reported on April 16, that a US official had requested funding and military resources from Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates to maintain Syria's security once Daesh (ISIS/ISIL)* is completely defeated.

Earlier, during an April 3 summit with the leaders of the Baltic States, the US President had suggested that Washington could continue its military presence in Syria if the Gulf States provide necessary funding.

"Saudi Arabia is very interested in our decision, and I said, 'Well, you know, you want us to stay, maybe you're going to have to pay'," Trump said, commenting on his decision to pull out of the region.

Dr. Sanjay Gupta Schools Jeff Sessions On Medical Marijuana And Opioids

Dr. Sanjay Gupta Schools Jeff Sessions on Medical Marijuana and OpioidsBrandon Turbeville
April 25, 2018

In the latest demonstration that free access to marijuana in a supposedly free society is an idea whose time has come, none other than CNN’s Sanjay Gupta, the notoriously biased news organization’s Chief Medical Correspondent, has written an op-ed in the form of an open letter to US Attorney General Jeff Sessions, asking that Sessions to open his mind to the fact that marijuana is a powerful medicine and possible tool for easing the opioid epidemic.

Gupta acknowledged his own ignorance related to medical marijuana only a few short years ago and wrote of how he came to change his mind. Gupta wrote of the number of stories and cases he personally witnessed where marijuana provided relief to a number of health problems as well as growing evidence that marijuana could be one more solution to the opioid crisis.

In his article, “Dr. Sanjay Gupta To Jeff Sessions: Medical Marijuana Could Save Many Addicted To Opioids,” Gupta writes,

Not only can cannabis work for a variety of conditions such as epilepsy, multiple sclerosis and pain, sometimes, it is the only thing that works. I changed my mind, and I am certain you can, as well. It is time for safe and regulated medical marijuana to be made available nationally. I realize this is an unconventional way to reach you, but your office declined numerous requests for an interview, and as a journalist, a doctor and a citizen, I felt it imperative to make sure you had access to our findings. 
Mr. Sessions, there is an added urgency, as we are in the middle of a deadly opioid epidemic that has been described as the worst self-inflicted epidemic in the history of our country.

Syria Installs Food And Water Stations For Street Cats In Damascus

Brandon Turbeville
May 1, 2018

While the United States, Britain, France, NATO, Saudi Arabia, and the GCC continue to fund terrorists in Syria, any attempt at relieving the conditions of the Syrian people on behalf of people of good will in the invading nations is consistently blocked by their governments and corporations as a result of Western sanctions.

The West now has the mantle of having caused over 400,000 needless deaths and the destruction of a wide portion of the entire country. Those in the West who oppose such insanity are even prevented from doing anything on their own to alleviate the suffering. But with the human toll so high, one aspect of the war that is never discussed is the toll it has taken on animals.

While many Syrians owned pets (it is quite common to see cats and turtles in Syrian homes), the West’s war against the Syrian government has created not only a human refugee crisis and human internal displacement, it has also caused a similar crisis for animals. As Western-backed terrorists took over more and more communities and installed their brutal Sharia law, the Syrian government was forced to liberate these areas by military means. Many Syrians were either killed by terrorists or caught in the crossfire and many others still had no other choice but to flee the conflict. Most of the people who fled had to leave their pets behind.
