Monsanto and other glyphosate manufacturers appear to have distorted
scientific evidence on the public health impacts of glyphosate in order
to keep the controversial substance on the market.

In its new report, Global 2000 shows how #glyphosate producers have been “buying science”.

CIA Created ISIS -- Assange Drops Bombshell on WikiLeaks Release of 500K US Cables

CIA Created ISIS -- Assange Drops Bombshell on WikiLeaks Release of 500K US Cables:

 

The founder of the transparency organization WikiLeaks released a
statement yesterday upon the release of over 500,000 diplomatic cables
dating back to 1979, which succinctly reveals how the CIA was
essentially responsible for creating the Islamic State (ISIS) terror
group.


The timing of the release coincided with the sixth anniversary of
WikiLeaks “Cablegate” release, which exposed the machinations of the
underbelly of the U.S. empire. The latest release, known as the “Carter
Cables,” adds 531,525 new diplomatic cables to the WikiLeaks’ already
voluminous Public Library of U.S. Diplomacy (PLUSD).








In a statement released in concert with the release of the “Carter
Cables,” Julian Assange mapped out how the events of 1979 began a series
of events that have ultimately culminated in the rise of ISIS.


“If any year could be said to be the “year zero” of our modern era, 1979 is it,” said Assange.

How Come Famine has become a Weapon that Rich and Powerful Employ Against the Poor | New Eastern Outlook

 Despite the continuous attempts special interests make to suppress facts
about cases of massive famine they’ve provoked, the anger their actions
have provoked have manifested itself in the latest UN report on the
largest humanitarian crisis since the end of World War II which has put
some 20 million people in Yemen, South Sudan, Somalia and Nigeria on the
brink of death from starvation. As it has been previously reported by
the UN Children’s Fund, nearly 1.4 million children face ‘imminent
death’ from famine this year alone. Civil wars, military aggression and
terrorist activities in the above listed four states have virtually
destroyed civil infrastructure, triggering a mass exodus from those
states.

Keeping the Myth and the Islamic State Alive | New Eastern Outlook

 Joint Syrian-Russian-Iranian operations against foreign-funded and armed
militant groups across Syrian territory have incrementally dismantled
and frustrated the fighting capacity of groups including the so-called
Islamic State, Al Nusra, Al Qaeda, and a myriad of other fronts
coordinated and arrayed from abroad against Damascus. With the Russian
intervention in late 2015, considerable air power was applied to these
militant fronts’ logistical lines extending beyond Syria’s borders. As
the supplies were cut, Syrian forces and their allies were able to
isolate and eliminate one stronghold after another.

Israel's raid on Syria (DISCUSSION & ANALYSIS)

Israel's raid on Syria (DISCUSSION & ANALYSIS)

 

Israel's raid appears to have been intended to disrupt the ongoing offensive against ISIS but has provoked a powerful response.














The Russians have now formally confirmed
earlier media reports that following the Israeli air raid on Syria on
Friday the Israeli ambassador in Moscow was called in to the Russian
Foreign Ministry to be handed a stern lecture and a stiff protest.


Moscow’s confirmation of the Russian protest to Israel, and the fact
that the Israeli ambassador was summoned to the Russian Foreign Ministry
within hours of the raid taking place, shows how seriously the Russians
are treating this incident.


What is most interesting – and worrying – about this incident is not
whether or not an Israeli aircraft was shot down.  The Syrians regularly
claim to have shot down Israel aircraft, and the Israelis equally
regularly deny this was the case.  The Syrians have provided no evidence
of any Israeli aircraft being shot down, and it is unlikely one was.


Rather what is worrying about this incident is that the Syrians claim
that the air raid targeted Syrian military facilities near Palmyra –
deep inside Syria – and that the Syrians were sufficiently concerned
about the air strike that they in turn attempted to shoot the Israeli
aircraft down whilst they were flying over Israeli territory.

Over the past few years, Europe has found itself in the frontline in
the fight against terrorism and jihadist radicalisation. They have
become some of the most serious threats
to European security, and to the values the European Union was built on.
In the wake of the November 2015 Paris attacks, the European Policy
Centre (EPC), the European Foundation for Democracy (EFD) and the
Counter Extremism Project (CEP) came together and decided to launch a
project to analyse the rise of jihadist radicalisation in Europe and
beyond and develop concrete policy recommendations to tackle the issue
head-on.

This book,
published exactly one year after the 2016 Brussels attacks, is the
result of a series of multi-stakeholder events and workshops, and
features contributions from renowned experts. As terrorism and
radicalisation become ever more complex and multifaceted, this study
goes beyond a mere cause-effect analysis and looks at the problem from
many different angles, including radicalisation in schools, universities
and mosques, geostrategic aspects, the nature of online extremist
narratives, the nexus between the extreme right and jihadist
radicalisation, and examples of effective countering violent extremism
(CVE) measures. The one thing all authors agree on is that, in order to
successfully address radicalisation and keep EU citizens (and others
around the world) safe from further terrorist attacks, intensified
cooperation and intelligence sharing between member states, and between
the EU and its partners, is an absolute must. Equally important is that
EU member states can offer marginalised and disillusioned youths at risk
of radicalisation a better alternative, and promote a positive
counter-narrative based on its own founding principles of freedom and
democracy.

“There is no American Deep State…it just looks like there is” | OffGuardian

 

Superb takedown by Off-Guardian of the media chorus decrying the notion that there is a US Deep State.

As I have pointed out here on several occasions, the corporate
media is very much part of the Deep State. Nick Davies' Flat Earth News
has a whole chapter dedicated to the efforts of the CIA and other
western security agencies to get their placemen into influential media
outlets.

Many journalists
of my generation ended up in journalism because of Woodward and
Bernstein's role in bringing down Nixon. The opening of this article,
with details of how Woodward ended up at the Washington Post, is a real
eye-opener in itself.

New Docs Expose Bush Sr. Illegally Destroying Evidence Of US Crimes While Head Of CIA

New Docs Expose Bush Sr. Illegally Destroying Evidence Of US Crimes While Head Of CIA

 By Claire Bernish

Documents recently dredged from the CIA’s massive database expose an
effort by the former director to destroy documents evincing the agency’s
illegal activities and operations.


That director — George H.W. Bush, who served in the role from January
1976 until January 1977 — went on to become the 41st President of the
United States.


As MuckRock reports,


In 1976, Congresswoman Bella Abzug wrote to CIA Director
George H.W. Bush about the existing moratorium on the destruction of CIA
files. As the Chairwoman of the Subcommittee on Government Information
and Individual Rights, which had jurisdiction over government
information policy including FOIA and the Privacy Act, she wanted the
moratorium extended — specifically, she wanted to ensure that Congress
had time to enact legislation in response to the Church, Pike, and
Rockefeller hearings and the resulting reports.

Radical Terrorism is Spreading Like a Plague to Different Regions of the Wold | New Eastern Outlook

 It’s hardly a secret that ISIS attaches a great deal of importance to
the “daulah” – the territories physically controlled by this
quasi-state. It was the main advertising
point for the Islamic State, due to which it was able to gain new
supporters in various regions of the world. Now that the territories
controlled by ISIS are doomed to fall back under the control of local
forces, the “good old days” of 2014-2015, when ISIS militants boasted
themselves as an invincible force that attracted thousands of fighters
every month, have long but passed. But even when ISIS loses its “base of
operations”, it will not disappear from the face of the earth.

Blacklisted, Smeared & Silenced For Exposing NATO Destabilization Of Syria - YouTube

Blacklisted, Smeared & Silenced For Exposing NATO Destabilization Of Syria - YouTube


Mnar A. Muhawesh


Though
it’s been nearly six years, the subject of the Syrian conflict remains
as contentious as ever. While those who characterize themselves as
pro-regime change have monopolized the
wider conversation on Syria, even the most tame opposition against
foreign intervention, or the CIA-backed rebels—who now come in varying
flavors of extremism—continues to be taboo.


Those who refuse to support U.S. military intervention in Syria and the
CIA backed regime change operation there that has been well documented
for over 25 years — are branded “Assadists” — and if you’re a writer or
commentator?

Well, that gets you and your work blacklisted from
publications and, in the case of journalists like myself and others who
make up a long list of anti-interventionists far too long to mention
here, even gets your speaking engagements shut down and kicked off of
blogs, regardless of what topic they’re on.

It seems that
opposing what clearly amounts to a NATO-imposed regime change operation
in Syria in order to create the next Afghanistan in the Middle East and
ultimately weaken Russia and Iran gets you characterized as a supporter
of genocide.

But this is not a new phenomenon — we’ve been here before as recently as Libya and Iraq.


During the pro-war campaign against Libya, we were told, just as we
were during previous conflicts, that military intervention was necessary
in order to protect civilians from a madman.

The same
loudmouthed pundits who led us down the bloody path of war have since
been eerily silent in the aftermath — where Libya is now being overrun
by groups like ISIS and the country is being described as a failed
state.

In Iraq, we saw an energized anti-war movement smeared as
being pro-Saddam, and now, despite what we’ve learned about both
conflicts, history seems to be repeating itself. Many are now suffering a
kind of collective amnesia over how war is peddled to the public.

 Various aspects of relations between the two Asian giants, India and

understanding of these is imperative for
the assessment of the larger geopolitical game. It can be easily stated
that this year’s events did not bring any positive change to these
relations. It curious that all sorts of bilateral official meetings are
inevitably accompanied by positive public rhetoric and mutually friendly
remarks, however, all of these fail to mask the ever widening divide
between the two states.

He decried how Israel’s “illegal settlement enterprise has moved at
an alarming pace” since Donald Trump assumed the U.S. presidency in
January, calling the practice a “flagrant violation” of international
law.



His report also pointed to how the illegal settlement building is
accompanied by “high rates of demolition of Palestinian homes in the
West Bank, including East Jerusalem.”


Israel and its supporters, notably in Washington, have repeatedly
highlighted Agenda Item Seven as evidence of the council’s credibility
gap, arguing it cannot be effective while disproportionately targeting
Israel.


The U.S. has taken those concerns to the next level, with its top
diplomat Rex Tillerson publicly threatening to withdraw from the council
over its “biased agenda item against Israel.”


The U.S. and Israel boycotted Monday’s session that saw a group of
majority Muslim nations repeatedly denounce Israel’s treatment of the
Palestinians.
