Industry delayed EU regulation of toxic chemicals- Chemical Manipulation of Humanity

The petrochemical industry - big oil - lobbied for the delay of the regulation of EDC's, the toxins that are chemical manipulating humanity and the entire planet.
EUobserver
A report out on Wednesday (20 May) shows how industry lobbied EU institutions to kill regulation on possible toxic chemicals used in everyday products.

Drafted by Brussels-based Corporate Europe Observatory and by French journalist Stephane Horel, it shows how big chemical trade associations and firms managed to prevent restrictions from being imposed on endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs).

EDCs, which can interfere with hormonal systems, are often found in pesticides, plastics, cosmetics, computers, and construction materials.

The EU banned an EDC known as bisphenol A (BPA) from being used in baby bottles in 2011 because of the risks.

Nina Holland, CEO campaigner and co-author of the report, said they obtained hundreds of documents released by the European Commission following freedom of information requests.

“[It] show unambiguously how science is being manipulated to defend vested interests, manufacture doubt and delay a pioneering regulation”, she said.

The affair kicked off in 2009 when the DG Environment at the European Commission launched an independent study to probe EDC toxicology on humans.

The resulting report, which took a critical view on EDCs, prompted the DG to start laying the groundwork for future EU-wide rules.

The conclusions of the report and the DG’s moves provoked attacks in 2012 from the US-based chemical corporations, British and German authorities, and from inside the commission itself.

The director-general of DG Sanco, the commission’s health and safety department, headed at the time by Paola Testori Coggi, is said to have sidelined DG Environment and initiated another study by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) which came out with different conclusions.

One EFSA scientist, in an email, describes his embarrassment over the new report on EDCs because it contradicted another report by the World Health Organisation and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).

“It is almost embarrassing to compare our current draft report with the WHO-UNEP report. The issues the WHO-UNEP report highlight and takes out as being specific for [endocrine disruptors], we in our report are trying to down-play or even avoid,” notes the email.

The WHO-UNEP report, published in early 2013, concluded that EDCs were a “global threat that needs to be resolved”.

For its part, the European Parliament had by then issued its own report, which backed the conclusions originally obtained by DG Environment.

The industry, including chemical giant Bayer, initiated delay tactics in late 2013 by requesting the European Commission to conduct a 12-month impact assessment.

They lobbied DG Sanco, Enterprise and Trade, and also the commission’s secretary general.

Next they targeted the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP).

On the US side, the American Chemistry Council (ACC), CropLife America (CLA), the American Chamber of Commerce in Brussels, lobbied against imposing any further regulatory restrictions on the chemicals in TTIP.

A German toxicologist along with around 50 scientists also opposed the DG Environment survey on EDCs in a letter written to the commission’s chief scientific adviser Anne Glover in June 2013.

Around 30 of the signatories had ties to the industry. Three of them – also with industry ties – worked at EFSA.

A rebuttal published in Endocrine Society journal and signed by over 100 scientists described the German letter as “a profound disservice” to public health.

But around a month after receiving the German letter, Catherine Day, the EU commission’s secretary general, decided an impact assessment study was needed.

“With this decision to launch an impact assessment, the secretary general had single-handedly thrown a monkey wrench in DG Environment’s work on EDCs,” notes the CEO paper.

The report notes that, as a result, the scientific criteria to define EDCs will not be ready before 2017.

“That is four years after the legal deadline set by the [EU] parliament.”

Ramadi to Palmyra: KurdISHIS/Israeli collusion- Stealing Assyrian history

Going Long! - Palmyra, Ramadi , KurdISHIS, Israel and the theft of human history.
Talked a bit about Ramadi yesterday as it related back to Mosul. Pointing out the fact that Mosul and Ramadi fell in the same manner. The Fall of Ramadi Mirrors the Fall of Mosul: ISIS "bigger threat then ever"
Almost immediately after  Ramadi fell, Palmyra was taken by KurdISHIS.
Coincidence or a plan?
Looks to be a plan

"The simultaneous fall of Palmyra (also known in Arabic as Tadmor) in Syria with that of Ramadi in Iraq in the presence of the anti-ISIL coalition shows that the US and the ISIL are on the same side," Abdel Fattah Mohammad (Egyptian analyst) told FNA on Wednesday.
He underlined that anyone who looks at the developments of Syria and Iraq from outside surely sees a relationship between the simultaneous collapse of Palmyra and Ramadi.

"After nine months since the beginning of the US-led anti-ISIL coalition's airstrikes on ISIL positions in Iraq and Syria, the coalition is still incapable of preventing the ISIL advances in both countries because the US is cooperating with the ISIL,"
True enough and I discussed that abject “failure” of the coalition yesterday. But Palmyra is interesting for a couple of reasons:

First reason according to the Egyptian analyst Palmyra is strategically located

 “at the crossroads of key highways leading West to Damascus and Homs, and East to Iraq”

Look for yourself. Palmyra is definitely strategically located.

Strategic local aside, what else makes Palmyra an interesting target is it's history!

Indeed Palmyra is very interesting.  Palmyra was part of the Assyrian Kingdom.


 For about one millennium it was an Assyrian caravan town
 The Kurds, and I have covered this previously, covet Assyrian history. To the point that they are attempting to make it their own. Stealing Assyrian history in order to make a history for themselves, pushing the meme of a people that deserve a country, though, they have always been nomadic and have from all my reading never had a country. Or a nation for that matter? They have from all my reading lived within the borders of other nations. Since they never lost a country or nation how could they have anything to take back? This is but one connection that the Kurds and Israelis have. Stealing the history of others, including the land, and rewriting known human  history to suit their own political agenda.
What does the Jewish Virtual Library say about Assyria?
Not much when one considers the extremely long history of the Assyrians in the region.
In fact if  one was to take the Jewish Virtual Library’s word as fact, which it does not appear to be, the Assyrians were small players in the area. Perpetrators of violence, mostly except for one little bit of interest at the bottom of the page linked
The odd paradox of Assyrian culture was the dramatic growth in science and mathematics.  Among the great mathematical inventions of the Assyrians were the division of the circle into 360 degrees and were among the first to invent longitude and latitude in geographical navigation. They also developed a sophisticated medical science which greatly influenced medical science as far away as Greece.
A dramatic growth of science, mathematics & sophisticated medical science which greatly influenced medical science as far away as Greece should indicate to us all that the Assyrians were vastly more important/influential in human history than the JVL would have us believe.
Can’t imagine why Jewish Virtual Library would go to such lengths to downplay the importance and influence of these people? Me being facetious.

The Kurds and the followers of Judaism- birds of a feather flock together

 A brief history of the Assyrians
Assyria is located in north Mesopotamia and spans four countries: In Syria it extends west to the Euphrates river; in Turkey it extends north to Harran, Edessa, Diyarbakir, and Lake Van; in Iran it extends east to Lake Urmi, and in Iraq it extends to about 100 miles south of Kirkuk. This is the Assyrian heartland, from which so much of the ancient Near East came to be controlled.
Kurdistan, which your supposed to believe previously existed seems to be ancient Assyria. How is that possible?
Kurdistan from wiki- note the obfuscation!

If you read critically, you immediately realize that the Kurds never had a nation
“is a roughly defined geo-cultural region wherein the Kurdish people form a prominent majority population”
  • A roughly defined geo cultural region
  • Where the kurds formed a prominent majority
No defined borders, no defined territory and of course no definition of prominent majority.
Sound familiar? It should. Think "Israel" 
 Reading further we get to  the description of the desired Kurdistan:
“Contemporary use of the term refers to four parts of a greater Kurdistan, which include parts of southeastern Turkey (Northern Kurdistan), northern Syria (Western Kurdistan), northern Iraq (Southern Kurdistan), and western Iran (Eastern Kurdistan)”
By now it should be very obvious to you that what is being claimed as Kurdistan is the heartland of the Assyrian empire! Unless you are to deep into your main stream media mind control program- then you won't notice a thing!

History is being rewritten to suit a political agenda- The taking of Palmyra by ISIS, so called, benefits both Israel, the Kurds and the NATO remake the ME agenda.

As long time readers here know I have long theorized that the sunni muslim Kurds & sunni muslim ISIS are one and the same. I’ve seen nothing in the way of information that has changed my mind. In fact the attack on Palmyra gives more support to my theory

What else aroused my suspicion regarding Kurdish involvement in Palmyra?

A news report out of Erbil, Iraq. I saved it because it seemed so prophetic. May 14/2015- Nearly two weeks ago By far the earliest reporting I had seen regarding a move on Palmyra. Straight from the Kurds in Erbil, Iraq.

 Historically, Assyrian:  Palmyra in Syria
Civil rights activist Bassam al-Dairi said that fierce battles broke out Wednesday (May 13/2015) between the IS group and the pro-regime forces, during which the group controlled al-Thinayya checkpoint at the northern entrance of the Sikhna city.

The source pointed out that the IS group was able to advance into major parts of the city and clashed with Assad army near Sikhna’s police station, headquarters of the Baath Party and the National Hospital.

“Dozens of the regime’s army and the allied militia forces (mainly the National Defense) were reportedly killed and dozens others wounded,” he added, pointing out that a state of panic spread among civilians in the historic city of Palmyra.
“The IS hardline group announced Wednesday evening taking a full control of Sikhna city and advanced in the suburbs of Palmyra,” al-Dairi told ARA News, quoting military sources.
Pro-IS sources confirmed that the battles reached the outskirts of Palmyra city, saying that fierce clashes broke out in the vicinity of Amiriya area, north of Palmyra, and ended with the militants control. This coincided with a mass displacement among civilians for fear of shelling by the pro-Assad forces and possible atrocities by the IS group.

How is it that the Kurds were able to access and report on this incident so early in the attack? A full week before Palmyra was taken? Also days before Ramadi fell to “ISIS” aka the Sunni Muslim Kurds and their compatriots bolstered by Israel and NATO.  Who is this 'activist'?
Such early access to information reeks of inside knowledge.

KURDISHIS

Today the Kurds are reporting success in liberating Assyrian Christian villages- No news on the Christian Assyrians that had inhabited the villages. Apparently they had fled from ISIS earlier and now ISIS has fled from the Kurds, leaving behind the Assyrian villages they had controlled to the Kurds, who are busily erasing the Assyrians from history.

Still can't see the symbiosis? KURDISHIS? IS KURDISH?
Following a 10-day offensive, Kurdish fighters took control early this week of 14 Assyrian villages that IS had controlled since February,” said Rami Abdel Rahman, director of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
Assyrian Christians, who are from one of the world’s oldest Christian communities, have been under increasing threat since IS seized control of large parts of Syria. Thousands of Christians fled an assault by the jihadists in the northeastern province of Hasakeh in February after a spate of kidnappings by IS, which is still holding 210 Assyrians hostage
The Observatory also reported that Kurdish militia took control of the strategic village of Al-Mabrukah, southwest of the flashpoint Kurdish town of Kobani on the Syrian-Turkish border.
According to Abdel Rahman, the Kurdish advance could also open the road towards Tal Abyad, a border town used by IS as a gateway from Turkey.
Over the course of 20 days, the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) seized control of 4,000 square kilometres of territory from IS in Hasakeh province, Abdel Rahman said.

Elon Musk's SpaceX: Now we help do SURVEILLANCE for the SPOOKS

Oh Goody- more spying, control & surveillance
After an extended spat between Elon Musk and the US Air Force, SpaceX has finally been certified for military space missions, muscling into what had been a cosy monopoly held by a Lockheed-Boeing joint venture.
An Air Force press release notes that the first opportunity for SpaceX to compete to provide launch services will probably be in June, for the GPS III satellite launch.
“This is a very important milestone for the Air Force and the Department of Defense," said the Secretary of the Air Force, Deborah Lee James, who added:
SpaceX’s emergence as a viable commercial launch provider gives the opportunity to compete for launch services for the first time in almost a decade.
Ultimately, leveraging of the commercial space market drives down cost to the American taxpayer and improves our military’s resiliency.
SpaceX will now be able to compete against the former monopoly holder, United Launch Alliance (ULA), a coalition between US aerospace-defence behemoths Lockheed and Boeing. It will be in the market to launch not only friendly GPS spacecraft, but also spy satellites which can be used to carry out surveillance against nations and persons of interest. It has been suggested in the past that this could include the USA and US citizens.

The Fall of Ramadi Mirrors the Fall of Mosul: ISIS "bigger threat then ever"

Mirror: : Something that shows what another thing is like in a very clear and accurate way

 The fall of Ramadi is an almost EXACT REPLAY of the Fall of Mosul. It appears to be the same tactic replayed in another city. That is way beyond coincidental or happenstance. 

Ramadi:

 U.S. officials, including Carter, have said Iraqi forces fled the ISIS advance on Ramadi without fighting back, leaving behind weapons and vehicles for the extremists.

 The fall of Mosul: Who benefits? And who does not? Updated!  From 2014

Troops allegedly fled as ISIS advanced in Mosul too. Same as in Ramadi.  Some stripped off their uniforms and changed into other clothing (I'll bet that occurred in Ramadi)   As I had stated back in 2014, once fighters were 'uncostumed' free of their military uniforms, wearing ordinary street clothing or even an alternative form of camoflauge the so called ‘cowardly military men’ could blend right in with the advancing ISIS brand fighters leaving Ramadi to fall. Same as Mosul

And just like in Mosul, the convenient fall of Ramadi allowed for the capture of all kinds of weapons and vehicles! 


This is an almost exact replay! And that is beyond coincidental. It reads like a tactic that was employed successfully previously so it was used again- Hey, if it ain't broke, it don't need fixin!

Also interesting the coalition did nothing. Where Mosul was concerned the Americans were stationed very near by. In the case of Ramadi, I'll let this Iranian fellow make the point:

In Iran, the daily newspaper Javan, which is seen as close to the Revolutionary Guard, quoted Soleimani as saying the U.S. didn't do a "damn thing" to stop the extremists' advance on Ramadi.
Gen. Qassim Soleimani, the head of the elite Quds forces in Iran's Revolutionary Guard, accused the U.S. of having 'no will' in fighting ISIS.
"Does it mean anything else than being an accomplice in the plot?" he reportedly asked, later saying the U.S. showed "no will" in fighting ISIS.
 An exactly replay- How much more obvious does this have to get?

Considering the collusion between ISIS & the NATO nations, including but not limited to choosing to stand down while ISIS advanced on Ramadi... How should we really interpret this news from today?

 ISIS poses bigger threat after nearly a year of coalition bombing
To date, we in the West have been given a regular tally of the airstrikes that coalition aircraft are undertaking, the targets they attack. And we have been told repeatedly that the airstrikes are having "considerable effect" on ISIS's movement.
I interpret the success of ISIS as the success of the NATO coalition. Hand in Hand.

Greece to Question Syrian over Turkey Bound Bullet Haul

Call this news story- Curious
Thessaloniki, Greece--Greek investigators were to question Monday a Syrian (Kurdish??) caught trying to sneak tens of thousands of bullets into Turkey, a police source said.
How many tens of thousands of bullets? 10? 20? I don't know? 
The 28-year-old man was detained over the weekend at the Kipi customs post in Evros, the northernmost part of Greece, after police found parcels of bullets concealed in special caches in his car.

The authorities said they were not ruling out the possibility that the ammunition was destined to rebels of the Free Syrian Army.

The suspect's vehicle had Austrian registration plates but he was carrying a fake British driving license, police said.

Evros is a central hub on the route connecting Europe and Asia, where smugglers routinely attempt to pass guns, drugs and migrants, from or into Turkey, which shares 1,300 kilometres (800 miles) of border with Iraq and Syria.

100 US/EU fighter jets join Arctic Exercise near Russia

How very peace inducing......Reuters

About 100 fighter jets from the United States and eight European nations began an Arctic training exercise in the Nordic nations on Monday, a region worried by increased Russian military activity. The exercise, based in the north of Norway, Sweden and Finland with 4,000 personnel, is meant to test cooperation among Arctic nations near Russia.

The aim is to exercise and train units in the orchestration and conduct of complex air operations, in close relations to NATO partners,” Norwegian brigadier general Jan Ove Rygg, heading the exercise, said in a statement. The exercise, lasting from May 25 to June 5, is one of the biggest fighter jet exercises in Europe this year and the second of its type after one in 2013. Plans are for exercises every second year, testing everything from shooting down airborne targets to mid-air refuelling. NATO members involved were the United States, Germany, Britain, France, the Netherlands and Norway, as well as non-members Sweden, Finland and Switzerland, which are linked to the alliance via NATO’s partnership for peace
NATO's partnership for peace... suuure.
