West, GCC, Israel Fear “Shiite Crescent” Turning Into “Full Moon” According To Leaked 2009 Cable

On  May 8, 2018, 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 was 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 in the past that Iran was living up to its commitments. Still, Trump argued previously that, while Iran may be sticking to its commitments, it was 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 had been “fostering discord” and that it was 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.


NASA Space Images Show Dark Polluted Water Spilling From Carolina Rivers Into Ocean

Satellite imagery has discovered Carolina rivers so polluted their streams appear dark from outer space. These streams, unfortunately, are not only polluting and damaging water quality throughout the Carolina’s but also pouring into the ocean.

As Abbie Bennett of the Herald Sun wrote,

A NASA satellite is tracking flooding in the Carolinas following Hurricane Florence, and its images show dark, polluted water flowing from rivers into the Atlantic Ocean. 
Nearly 8 trillion gallons of rain fell across North Carolina during the storm, according to the National Weather Service in Raleigh’s estimate. 
That rain led to catastrophic flooding across the state, and has polluted rivers, streams, creeks and their outflows along the coast, NASA’s satellite images show. 
One image captured on Sept. 19 shows the New River, White Oak River and Adams Creek south of Cape Lookout and the deeply discolored water that appears dark brown — or even black. 
The color of the water in the image “reveals how soils, sediments, decaying leaves, pollution, and other debris have discolored the water in the swollen rivers, bays, estuaries, and the nearshore ocean,” according to NASA.
But that isn’t the only material floating in North and South Carolina’s rivers. Floodwaters from Hurricane Florence were also responsible for the deaths of 3.4 million chickens and thousands of pigs in the state’s notorious factory farm system. While many Americans were horrified to see that these animals were left to suffer and drown, an admittedly horrible and inhumane fate, the issue of factory farming in general was ignored, i.e. the reason why millions of chickens and thousands of pigs were housed in giant factories to begin with.


Will South Carolina Leave The Stone Age And Allow Medical Marijuana?

As the rest of the country moves forward without it, some residents of South Carolina are starting to believe that marijuana may be legalized in the state by 2019. Medical marijuana that is.

For many who live in South Carolina, the idea that legalized marijuana in any form would ever exist in the state was a pipe dream that people would be quick to scoff at. However, that was before the Compassionate Care Act, a medical cannabis bill, made it all the way to the floor of the State House and Senate in 2018.

As is typical, the legislative session ended before it could be voted on, but some advocates believe they may have the votes from politicians they need to pass it in 2019.

“People understand that it is inhumane to withhold from people medicine that can really help them,” state senator, and founder of the Compassionate Care Act, Tom Davis said.

Even the former Executive Director of the South Carolina Sheriff’s Association has changed his tune regarding the benefits of medical marijuana.

What is not surprising, however, is that a Winthrop poll reported that 78% of people in South Carolina believe medical marijuana should be legal.

South Carolina has a history of holding out on rights despite the people of the state openly desiring them. The very fact that CBD is legal in South Carolina is amazing in and of itself.

Still, South Carolinians are hopeful that the state ends its grossly unproductive police state war against a harmless plant and focuses on other issues such as violent crime, crumbling infrastructure, the worst education system in the country, or ridiculously low wages.

Benefits Of CBD And Questions You Should Ask Before Buying

As America continues to wage its disastrous war on drugs, the question of whether or not a human being living in a supposedly free society has the right to consume plants of their choice continues to be argued in every state in the nation.

However, after decades and decades of fighting for the most basic rights, Americans (at least at the state level) are now able to access CBD. Still, tragic ignorance on the part of government, especially law enforcement, as well as the general public has resulted in many Americans still being unable to access the medicine they desperately need if that medicine is or is derived from a virtually harmless plant.

That ignorance stems from nearly a hundred years of horrific propaganda drilled into the minds of American citizens every day. As a result, many Americans cannot distinguish between CBD and THC, much less understand just how CBD benefits health, the difference in CBD products, or how to consume it.

What’s It Good For?

Because of the disastrous war on drugs, research into the benefits of CBD has not taken off to the levels necessary to fully understand the potential this substances holds for healing. However, just a few benefits of CBD are that it can:

  • Improve the symptoms of schizophrenia
  • Fight cancer
  • Reduce anxiety and depression 
  • Relieve pain 
  • Reduces risk of diabetes 
  • Act as an acne treatment 
  • Helps treat and reduce seizures and other neurological disorders 
  • Helps reduce nausea 
  • Helps reduce the symptoms of multiple sclerosis
