Manufacturing Dissent: The Truth About Syria - with video  ~ link ~ Manufacturing Dissent is a documentary about the psychological-warfare by the media and political establishment of the west and their allies aimed at facilitating the US, European and Israeli agenda of getting rid of the current Syrian government. It demonstrates how the media has directly contributed to the bloodshed in Syria.

The documentary de-constructs the main allegations those actors have presented, namely that the Syrian government was systematically repressing peaceful protests and that it has lost legitimacy. It shows how such claims are supported by scant evidence and are therefore little more than propaganda to serve the foreign policy interests of their countries.

Kuwait urges inspection of Israeli nuclear facilities ~ link ~ Any minute now the mainstream news media will be hitting this story hard with full coverage...any minute now...and the European and NATO nations will join in demanding full and complete inspection of the Israeli secret nuclear programs...any minute now...NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Why is that???   Stirling     

Food consumption under Nazis in the camps and in Gaza under Israel ~ linkThe fourth document, of primary importance here, is titled “Food Consumption in the Gaza Strip – Red Lines,” and it establishes what Israel considers to be the minimum caloric intake needed Gaza’s 1.5 million inhabitants, according to their age and sex.  Thus, Israeli planners have given careful consideration to the minimum amount of calories to be allowed in to Gaza to simultaneously serve as a weapon against Hamas, to attain Netanyahu’s strategy of “no prosperity, no development, no humanitarian crisis” but still ensure the Palestinians get on a diet, in Dov Weisglass’ “joking” words (“It’s like a meeting with a dietitian. We need to make the Palestinians lose weight, but not to starve to death.”).
This (admittedly rough) estimate suggests that Israel allows Gazans to consume (at most) about 40% more grams of food than the Nazis did their Auschwitz laborers.  So generous!

China in closed door negotiations to purchase Mexican crude oil without suing US dollars ~ link ~ Bye bye Petro-Dollar!   Stirling      

Sources inside Mexico claim this week that China has in fact brokered a secret deal with Pemex to purchase crude oil using currency means other than the US Dollar. The details of this agreement are still unknown at this time but China is expected to make a public announcement within the next few days.

Over the past ten years with new trade agreements China has invested billions of dollars inside Mexico. China has helped the Mexican government create jobs and has financially supported investments in the privatization of ports and infrastructure throughout Mexico. Mexico continues to privatize large sectors of its economy and China is line to benefit from additional investments inside Mexico.

21 Facts about American's decaying infrastructure that will blow your mind ~ linkYou can tell a lot about a nation by the condition of the infrastructure.  So what does our infrastructure say about us?  It says that we are in a very advanced state of decay.  At this point, much of America is being held together with spit, duct tape and prayers.  Our roads are crumbling and thousands of our bridges look like they could collapse at any moment.  Our power grid is ancient and over a trillion gallons of untreated sewage is leaking from our aging sewer systems each year.  Our airports and our seaports are clogged with far more traffic than they were ever designed to carry.  Approximately a third of all of the dam failures that have taken place in the United States since 1874 have happened during the past decade.  Our national parks and recreation areas have been terribly neglected and our railroads are a bad joke.  Hurricane Katrina showed how vulnerable our levees are, and drinking water systems all over the country are badly outdated.  Sadly, at a time when we could use significant new investment in infrastructure, our spending on infrastructure is actually way down.  Back during the 50s and the 60s, the U.S. was spending between 3 and 4 percent of GDP on infrastructure.  Today, that figure is down to about 2.4 percent.  But of course we don't have any extra money to spend on infrastructure because of our reckless spending and because of the massive amount of debt that we have accumulated.  While the Obama administration is spending more than half a million dollars to figure out why chimpanzees throw poop, our national infrastructure is literally falling apart all around us.  Once upon a time nobody else on the planet could match our infrastructure, and now we are in the process of becoming a joke to the rest of the world.

The following are 21 facts about America's failing infrastructure that will blow your mind....

The slow bank run that could still doom Europe ~ link ~ But before anyone breathes easy, it’s worth taking a look at this new investigation from Bloomberg’s Yalman Onaran. As the story details, there’s still a massive bank run going on in the euro zone that’s threatening to tear the currency union apart. Over the past 12 months, some $425 billion in deposits have been pulled from banks in Greece, Italy, Portugal and Spain. And about $390 billion in deposits have piled up in core euro countries, particularly France and Germany.

That might sound like a mundane bit of accounting. But it’s potentially quite dire. And this slow bank run is a major reason why the crisis in the euro zone isn’t likely to go away just yet.

Wells Fargo to foreclose on Dying Cancer Patient - video ~ link ~ Scummy bunch of bastards!  Stirling     

Is Alzheimer's just another form of diabetes? How our diet may be destroying our brains? ~ link ~ Around 35 million people suffer from Alzheimer’s disease worldwide(6); current projections, based on the rate at which the population ages, suggest that this will rise to 100 million by 2050(7). But if, as many scientists now believe, it is caused largely by the brain’s impaired response to insulin, the numbers could rise much further. In the US, the percentage of the population with diabetes type 2, which is strongly linked to obesity, has almost trebled in 30 years(8). If Alzheimer’s, or “diabetes type 3”, goes the same way, the potential for human suffering is incalculable.

Common antibiotic boosts spread of deadly superbug ~ link ~ New research has found that cases of MRSA - a bacteria that causes serious infections of the skin, blood, lungs and bones - decreased when prescriptions of ciprofloxacin were reduced, suggesting that the common antibiotic is helping the deadly superbug spread through hospitals.

The University of London research- published in the Journal of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy - also challenged the widely held belief that improved hygiene and hand-washing significantly hinders the spread of the bug, the Daily Star reported.

Cannabis Plant Extract Could Stop Aggressive Breast Cancer from Spreading ~ link ~ A compound found in cannabis could halt the spread of many forms of aggressive cancer, scientists say.

Researchers found that the compound, called cannabidiol, had the ability to ‘switch off’ the gene responsible for metastasis in an aggressive form of breast cancer. Importantly, this substance does not produce the psychoactive properties of the cannabis plant.
