Birender Sangwan’s parents wanted him to be a doctor. For two years, Sangwan even prepared for the medical entrance examinations in India before finally giving up. “I was always scared of hospitals,” he said in an interview at his modest two-room office at New Delhi’s Rohini court complex. “I still get dizzy and feel like…

Putin honors war-criminal Henry Kissinger

Rehmat's World

Last week, Russian Academy of Science elected Dr. Henry Alfred Kissinger, 93, as its new foreign member in recognition of his services to bring the US and Soviet Union closure during the so-called Cold War.

In May 2016, the Pentagon presented its highest civilian award to Henry Kissinger.

The German-born former US secretary of state in the 1970s, and a Nobel laureate, Dr. Henry Kissinger, who has been called by several of his fellow American Jews, such as Christopher Hitchens, and Bernie Sander, a war criminal.

Kissinger is a close friend of Russian president Vladimir Putin. Kissinger met Putin over half a dozen times – lately in Moscow in February 2016.

Henry Kissinger is a senior member of two powerful pro-Israel think tanks, the Center for Strategic and International Studied (CSIS), and Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). Both blessed Iraq and Libya wars for Israel. For the last four years both have been campaigning…

Leaked Soros Memo Exposes Obama’s Secret TPP Negotiations; Hillary “Flip-Flopping”, by Tyler Durden

STRAIGHT LINE LOGIC

SLL WILL BE ON VACATION 10/27-10/30 AND RESUME POSTING 10/31. HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

The WikiLeaks emails have been an eye-opener. In a better world the organization would get some sort of public service award, and its leader wouldn’t be holed up in the Ecuadorian embassy in London. From Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com:

In addition to providing a glimpse into the internal, and often confrontational, dialogue that took place within the Clinton campaign on topics ranging from Hillary’s email server, to coordination and collusion with the media, to the planning how to attack Bernie Sanders, to the fascinating strife and conflicts of interest within the Clinton Foundation and the Clinton Global Initiative, the Podesta leaks have also been instrumental in providing the public with insight into Hillary’s flip-flopping views on the TPP. Indeed, as the WSJ put it recently, a running question through the presidential race has been whether Hillary Clinton is…

From the AMERICAN THORACIC SOCIETY and the “consensus is the same as data” department comes this eyeroller of a claim that seems to confuse climate, real air pollution, and weather. It looks like they are trying to give a whole new meaning to “allergy season”. Of course, it comes from the same George Mason university that […]

Fukushima Radiation Has Contaminated The Entire Pacific Ocean – And It’s Going To Get Worse, by Whitney Webb

STRAIGHT LINE LOGIC

You don’t read much about it anymore, but the Fukushima reactor continues to spew radioactive material into the Pacific Ocean—300 tons a day. From Whitney Webb at trueactivist.com:

What was the most dangerous nuclear disaster in world history? Most people would say the Chernobyl nuclear disaster in Ukraine, but they’d be wrong. In 2011, an earthquake, believed to be an aftershock of the 2010 earthquake in Chile, created a tsunami that caused a meltdown at the TEPCO nuclear power plant in Fukushima, Japan. Three nuclear reactors melted down and what happened next was the largest release of radiation into the water in the history of the world. Over the next three months, radioactive chemicals, some in even greater quantities than Chernobyl, leaked into the Pacific Ocean. However, the numbers may actually be much higher as Japanese official estimates have been proven by several scientists to be flawed in recent years.
