Obama Sending More Troops To Iraq: What’s Wrong With These 3 “Boots On The Ground” Headlines

 

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / 08/20/2014 14:32

On June 13th, CNN reports President Obama stated:

 No troops to Iraq, but other options are being considered.

That was President Barack Obama’s message Friday in response to the lightning advance by Sunni militant fighters in Iraq that could threaten the government of Shiite Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki.

In a statement delivered from the White House South Lawn, Obama said the United States “will not be sending U.S. troops back into combat in Iraq,” but that he would be reviewing a range of other options in coming days.

Ebola Patients Flee Saudi Hospital and ‘Cured’ Doctor Drops Dead From The Disease

 

thedailysheeple.com / Chris Carrington / August 20th, 2014

What the circled area says is:

Adedavoh becomes the fifth Nigerian to die from the virus, excluding Sawyer. She had been discharged from the Centre for Infectious Disease Control at Yaba Lagos after recovering from the disease.

The Minister of Health for Nigeria has confirmed the death as Ebola related. So, we have an apparently recovered patient who is discharged from medical care who then drops dead…apparently from Ebola. Has something changed in the virus that it re-emerges or is it a case that there was a false negative test result?

Ferguson Tonight: Police-Protester Tensions Rise “Ferguson Ain’t America No More, You Can’t Even Walk” – Live Feed

from ZeroHedge:

UPDATE: Tactical teams have moved in to move protesters along. Community leaders are trying to calm both sides.

Following the death of another young black male in St.Louis, tonight has all the possibility of being another one of violence in Ferguson, Missouri. However, for now, there have been several arrests. In general police presence is notably less militarized, but in the last few minutes, tactical teams have started to rollout as protesters march chanting “hands up, don’t shoot” or “justice for Mike Brown.” Missouri Governor Jay Nixon commented, the Mike Brown shooting has “ripped open old wounds,” and calls for “vigorous” prosecution.

We Are Above the Law Declares County Attorney

 

by Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, PaulCraigRoberts.org:

Habersham County, Georgia, the jurisdiction that allowed intentionally or through negligence a SWAT team to break into a home with violent force in the middle of the night and throw a stun grenade into a baby’s face sending him to a hospital for weeks where he was in life support, has ruled that it would be illegal for the county to pay the baby’s medical bills. http://www.wsbtv.com/news/news/local/lawyer-county-refuses-pay-medical-bills-toddler-hu/ng3s9/

The negligence of the police, and thereby the county, is a triple dose. It was the wrong house. A SWAT team was unnecessary in order to exercise a search warrant for a drug suspect. There was no excuse for throwing a stun grenade into a baby’s crib.

If You Promote A Cure For Ebola, Men With Guns Could Show Up At Your Door

 

by Michael Snyder, End of the American Dream:

If I knew how to cure Ebola, I would be prohibited by law from telling you. I don’t know how to cure Ebola of course, but even if I did I could never mention it. And if you have a cure for Ebola and you start promoting it on the Internet, men with guns could soon show up at your door. Unfortunately, I am not kidding. Even if you have made a discovery that could potentially save millions of lives, that will not earn you an ounce of mercy from the FDA. In fact, the FDA has just issued a statement that contains a chilling warning for anyone that is claiming that they know how to prevent or cure Ebola. And without a doubt, FDA bureaucrats are scouring the Internet right now for any sign of an Ebola cure or treatment. When they find one, they are likely to crack down very hard based on their history. So if you do have a cure for Ebola, you might want to be very, very careful. You could end up having men with automatic weapons conducting a military-style raid on your home when you least expect it.

I wish that things were not this way in America.

As we reported last night, when the Ferguson curfew hitting at midnight, while most of the protesters dispersed, many still remained on the streets despite a clear warning by the police department that anyone still rioting/looting/protesting would be arrested. Which is when things went from bad to worse for yet another night. In roughly chronological order:

Death Wish? Media Draws Map to Home of Ferguson Police Officer Who Shot Mike Brown

Is the media trying to get Ferguson police office Darren Wilson lynched?

CNN broadcast a report Friday that showed the house, including the street number, of the Ferguson police officer who police say shot Mike Brown. The officer has been in hiding due to death threats since the shooting last Saturday. His name, Darren Wilson, was just released Friday morning.

Another news outlet apologized for broadcasting video of Wilson’s home while others have virtually drawn a map to Wilson’s house for those bent on vengeance.

Yahoo News named the community Wilson where Wilson resides and published a photograph of the officer.

The UK Daily Mail also named the community, posted photos of the officer and gave a description of the house.

USA Today also named the community and reported a local police presence.

The Washington Post named the street where Wilson lives.

In the video report, CNN reporter Ed Lavandera is seen walking in the street where Wilson lives. The CNN video shows a wide view of Wilson’s house and then pans around the street to show its relative position in the neighborhood. While Lavandera does not name the street, he gives its approximate location.

Plane sprays high school band students with toxic pesticides

 

students

naturalnews.com / by: Ethan A. Huff / Saturday, August 16, 2014

More than 350 members of a Texas high school’s marching band were sent home and told to thoroughly shower and sanitize their instruments after a plane flying overhead doused them with pesticides. Reports indicate that the students, who attend Pearland High School near Houston, were outside practicing when a city plane flew by, dumping chemicals meant for mosquito extermination.

According to reports, the incident happened around 8 a.m. on August 7, when a plane from the Brazoria County Mosquito Control District (BCMCD) flew over a parking lot next to the school’s football stadium. When administrators figured out what was going on, they told band members to go inside. But it was too late, as the toxins had already been released.

“It was pretty much right over us,” said Pearland band member Karleigh Fletcher to KHOU 11 News. “I was just surprised, if it was really pesticide, why would they be doing it over 300 kids?”

The pilot of the plane claims that he didn’t see the children in the lot, and BCMCD quickly tried to save face by claiming that the pesticide was “low level,” meaning that it isn’t particularly harmful. At the same time, the school called emergency medical services and sent all the children home anyway, instructing them to take 25-minute showers and to carefully clean their instruments.

You’re NOT Getting $15 An Hour – Your getting Fired !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It’s Different This Time: Humans Need Not Apply; Two Possible Solutions

globaleconomicanalysis.blogspot.com / Mike “Mish” Shedlock / Saturday, August 16, 2014 4:32 PM

On August 7, I wrote about “McCashier” Your $15.00 Per Hour McDonald’s Worker Replacement.

Sure. You can make $15 an hour at McDonald’s, at least in Seattle. You just have to perform better than this machine.

Many commented along the lines of “What’s the big deal? It’s only a cashier. There are more cooking jobs that cannot be replaced.

For example reader Chris commented …

 A McDonalds worker isn’t a “cashier.” The person who works the front end doesn’t just take orders and money. The person who works up front also fills drinks for drive thru. They clean the restrooms and dining areas. They help assemble food if needed(dropping fries.) Does the machine do all those things? If it doesn’t then it isn’t really replacing anything or more cost effective then a person. There is usually 2-3 people in the back assembling food and 2 people up front taking orders, handling money, assembling trays with ordered food, preparing drinks for drive thru, etc., etc. You could get the kiosk and the stupid burger machine and still have more than enough work for those 5 people.

The Bureaucracy Can Remove Any Elected Official At Will Killing Democracy Right Now

 

Perry-Rick

armstrongeconomics.com / by  / August 16, 2014

The indictment of Texas Governor Rick Perry by a grand jury illustrates the corruption in obtaining an indictment. In Hurtado v. California110 U.S. 516 (1884), the Supreme Court held that an indictment was necessary rather than a prosecutor just making up charges and filing them on what is known as an “information”. Worse still, the Supreme Court has held, always protecting government, that a prosecutor can even KNOW the person is innocent and still indict them for he has NO DUTY WHATSOEVER to present evidence that show innocence to a grand jury. The Supreme Court reasoning is horrifying and it allows for corruption in the justice department to threaten anyone and destroy their lives including Governor Rick Perry. The worst of it is that you have no right to be heard in a Grand Just. The prosecutor has no duty to present direct evidence that you are innocent and can now freeze all your assets based upon this one-sided affair to prevent you from hiring counsel of choice. The Supreme Court in its pro-government posture has bluntly stated that it “has always been thought sufficient to hear only the prosecutor’s side,” United States v. Williams, 504 U. S. 36, 51 (1992).

Indiana grandmother suffers violent SWAT raid after a neighbor uses her wireless internet

policestateusa.com / by  in News / August 16, 2014

EVANSVILLE, IN — An innocent elderly woman’s home was raided by SWAT when she was suspected of using the internet to trash-talk and post threats toward the local police.  In response, gun-wielding assailants breached her doors and windows in a violent search for electronic evidence.

The hair-raising incident took place at the household of Louise Milan on Powell Street.  It was the place where she and her husband had raised their six children, and had lived for three decades.

On June 21, 2012, the solitude of the familial home was shattered — along with numerous doors and window panes.  Louise Milan, 68, was home with her adopted daughter, 18-year-old Stephanie Milan.  Around midday, Louise had been straightening her bedroom when she heard a terrifying sound from downstairs.

“I hear this noise, and I’m thinking something’s hit the house,” Louise recalled in her deposition.  “Then I think the world has come to and end,” she added, when she heard “the second bang.”

Why The Fed Can’t, And Won’t, Let The Stock Market Crash

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden on 08/16/2014 21:39

When it comes to the stock market, while the biggest, and according to many only, beneficiary of the Fed’s ZIRP/QE policies of the past 6 years has been the wealthiest 1%, the reality is that said top crust of US society no longer needs the S&P to continue its relentless, manipulated and centrally-planned levitation.

Between a third Hamptons residence, a 5th Ferrari, and a 7th French villa, not to mention a few tons of gold, the super wealthy have long since booked their paper profits, and transferred their “wealth” out of the intangible and into actual, physical assets.

Therefore it is not the 1% that would suffer the most should the S&P have a post-Lehman like 50%+ wipe out, which also means that the Federal Reserve’s only mandate of pushing asset prices to ever higher levels while pretending it does so to boost employment and keep inflation at 2% is no longer for the benefit of the uber-wealthy.

So why can’t, or rather won’t, the Fed let the bubble market collapse once again? Simple – as the following chart shows, the illusion of wealth is now most critical when preserving the myth of the welfare state: some 50% of all US pension fund assets are invested in stocks and only 20% in Treasurys. This compares to less than 10% for Japan which also explains why for Abe, the only lifeline left is pushing pension funds out of their existing asset allocation sweet spot and forcing them to buy stocks. Whether this gambit will work is unknown.

Study Reveals The Impact Of The Fukushima Catastrophe On Plants And Animals

from IFL Science:

On March 11, 2011, the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant experienced a catastrophic failure that resulted in the meltdown of 3 of the plant’s 6 nuclear reactors. The event was triggered when a tsunami hit the area, which was the aftermath of a magnitude 9.0 earthquake. The plant started spilling out large amounts of radioactive material the day after the event, which will leave lasting scars on the environment for years to come.

Unlike the infamous 1986 Chernobyl disaster where serious delays resulted in significant gaps in impact data on both humans and non-human species, scientists started collecting biological information just a few months after the Fukushima catastrophe. Researchers hoped to gather information on the long-term genetic outcomes of varying levels of radiation exposure and also to identify strategies to assess the overall biological effects of ionizing radiation. Now, in a series of papers published in the Journal of Heredity, scientists are starting to reveal the damaging effects on several non-human organisms.

RFID implants into humans coming sooner than you think

by J. D. Heyes, Natural News:

British researcher Mark Gasson had a tiny chip injected underneath the skin on his hand in March 2009. The chip, according to reports, was just a bit more advanced than the versions pet owners use to track them, and it turned Gasson into a walking swipe card, essentially.

“With a wave of his wrist,” Business Insider (BI) reported, “he could open security doors at the University of Reading laboratory, where his experiment was being conducted, and he could unlock his cell phone just by cradling it.”

A year after that initial implant, Gasson infected it with a computer virus, one that he could pass onto other computer systems if the building’s computer networks had been programmed to read his chip.
