As explained by The Mind Unleashed , Lucy Turnbull is chairman of the pharmaceutical company Prima Biomed, which is currently trying to release a vaccine for cancer that it knows will generate billions of dollars in profits. Cancer, of course, is the one thing that bonds the populations of the world in solidarity of fear, so it’s expected that people will flock to the vaccine, should it ever achieve proper standards for safety and effectiveness. This is a problem because, as Mr. Turnbull admitted to the media, he and his wife “work very much as a team” to accomplish their various agendas. In the case of vaccinations, this means supporting legislation and mandates that require people to be vaccinated, even against their will , which has the effect of padding both pharmaceutical profits and their personal portfolios. “Australia’s politicians are deeply tied to pharmaceutical corporations, the British Monarchy, and other corporate and institutional powers which threaten the freedom and prosperity of Australian citizens,” explains The Mind Unleashed .

George [the Graham H. Stuart Professor of Political Science Emeritus at Stanford University] also argued that other Western powers sponsored terror in Third World countries. It concluded that the U.S. and its allies were the main supporters of terrorism throughout the world . Indeed, the U.S. has created death squads in Latin America, Iraq and Syria . Some in the American military have intentionally tried to “out-terrorize the terrorists” . As Truthout notes : Both [specialists Ethan McCord and Josh Stieber] say they saw their mission as a plan to “out-terrorize the terrorists,” in order to make the general populace more afraid of the Americans than they were of insurgent groups.

Ryan Reynolds knows plenty of people didn't love his 2011 movie Green Lantern and he just might agree. Reynolds stopped by The Late Show on Tuesday night to ponder some of lifes biggest questions with Stephen Colbert for the segment known as Big Questions with Even Bigger Stars. They pondered the nature of the universe, what cats dream about (Defenseless humans that taste like tuna, quipped Colbert), and the meaning of Life (thats Reynoldss new movie, not life itself), Eventually things turned to the most important questions, like what super powers they would like to have. Colbert was quick to answer, Id like to have a super-cool alien high-tech ring and its green and it has a lantern on it and I can use my imagination to make anything out of green light. Wow.

That being said, if the mainstream media were doing its job effectively, it would make a point of distinguishing between Russian and American roles in the region. The U.S. military has no legitimate excuse for invading Syria , whereas Russia’s military presence was formally requested by the Syrian government in 2015. What should be clear, however, is that none of these parties view human rights as a motivating concern for engaging militarily in Syria. All parties have blood on their hands, and in light of the fact that two nuclear powers are now stationed in the same Syrian city with complete polar opposite interests , it’s possible they will make an incredibly dire situation into an international powder keg. This article ( Russian and U.S. Troops Are Now In The Same Syrian City ) was originally published on Antimedia and syndicated by The Event Chronicle .

Yes, in spite of these – and so many more – acts of political, military and corporate sabotage upon the sentient veins of sacred living matter, the children of genius keep coming. And quantum physics reveals the absolute inter-connectivity of the diversity of all life, and how we are one. All one. While plants and animals suffer the fate of being genetically engineered into new species, further denaturing an already deformed environment, the humble element of water is revealed to be a crystalline gift of the gods with exceptional powers to sooth and heal. It is an extraordinary time on this blessed beleaguered planet. Resonant with extremes. Extremes that squeeze us and squeeze us, either into acts of submission or acts of rebellion and revolution, born of revelation. We who are ‘alivechoose rebellion. A passionate refusal to give-in. However, in order to make our rebellion into something capable of moving forward, manifesting itself as positive action in the here and now, it becomes all important to retain focus and not be pulled out of line by that which manifests as the crazed daily reality.

Indiscriminate” and “ArbitraryWhoWhatWhy also asked Bernstein to compare the surveillance/intelligence complex in his day to that of today, post-Snowden. He said that long before Edward Snowden came on the scene, he was quite aware of the NSA’s technical capabilities, including the ability to “vacuum” up vast amounts of electronic data. He referred to the book The Puzzle Palace by James Bamford, a 1982 exposé on the NSA. Yet he indicated that even in light of Snowden’s revelations, there has been no clear evidence of abuse of this vast surveillance privilege by the intelligence agencies. There has been no evidence that the executive branch has abused surveillance powers to spy on opposing political parties or candidates, as Nixon tried to do by bugging the offices of the Democratic headquarters. (Although now Trump, without providing any evidence, has openly accused the Obama adminstration of just such actions.

King, who headed Britain's central bank between 2003 and 2013, told the BBC that Scotland "certainly" could be independent, but "it would be a challenge to borrow on the international market if Scotland decided to run a large budget deficit". As leader of the governing, pro-secession Scottish National Party (SNP), Sturgeon has been a champion of independence although she needs the green light from London for a legally-binding referendum. Winning the Scottish parliament's approval would pave the way for her to ask the British government for the powers to call another vote. Scotland rejected independence in 2014, although the SNP argues Britain's decision last June to leave the EU warrants a fresh referendum as a majority in Scotland voted for Britain to remain within the bloc. May accused the SNP of "divisive and obsessive nationalism" on Friday.
