Endocrination- Documentary

Just about an hour- Easy viewing- Be sure to share this and the previous post: The Low Dose Makes the Poison- EDC's & the Chemical Manipulation of Humanity

Help me get the info out to a wider audience concerning the horrendous abuses being visited upon all of humanity by the petrochemical industry through them many EDC's

Canada's so called anti-terror bill? Je Suis Canada

Where are the giant pencils?  After all the nonsense spewed over the incident in Paris? 
Je Suis Canada?

“Such a move, however, could have a chilling effect on freedom of expression in Canada and would not necessarily contribute to effectively fighting domestic extremism, according to legal experts.

The new bill, which could also include provisions for expanded police powers, was promised by the federal government

Kent Roach, a professor at the University of Toronto who specializes in constitutional and terrorism law.

“The government has the burden before they introduce new laws to demonstrate why it’s not possible to prosecute these kinds of offences under existing Canadian law,” he says.

“There’s a real danger when we make laws in reaction to events with the assumption that those laws will help prevent tragedies from happening again.”
And Canada already has plenty of laws to address real terrorism issues- 

CBC spinning in a really manipulative fashion- highlighted below
Similarly, stifling speech plays into the narrative promoted by many extremist groups  that Western societies are hypocritical to espouse free speech values while repressing contradictory views. (Notice how the CBC framed that ? Extremist groups? That's to manipulate you, the reader, into going along with this because only extremist groups would oppose this. )In essence, says Forcese, these kinds of laws can make "martyrs of ideas" and speech that lie within the definition of protected speech.

It’s not extremists that promote that narrative of so called free governments stifling the natural law rights of humans.. It is people who endorse free speech and free discourse amongst free men that make clear that stifling speech is state sponsored terrorism. 

PM Harper
“Canada and its allies will not be intimidated and will continue to stand firmly together against terrorists who would threaten the peace, freedom and democracy our countries so dearly value. Canadians stand with France on this dark day.”
It isn't terrorists threatening our freedom or our so called democracy- It is legislation promoted by the state that is a threat to us all!

CBC News reported earlier this month that the new anti-terror legislation will likely include provisions to allow increased information-sharing between federal agencies, currently limited by privacy laws.
Yes, it is the Canadian government- not terrorists- that are threatening our peace, our freedom and our privacy. It is the Canadian government, acting as a terror state, acting as a tyranny,  endeavouring to deny the people there basic freedoms  Our human right to live our lives in privacy and to speak freely amongst ourselves.  The government, that works for us, is proposing legislation which will further erode our collective human freedoms. We have every right as humans to be free from spying, free from government intrusion, free from government interference. Free to speak amongst ourselves. Free from state tyranny.  So, what are you going to do about this?

If you are so inclined you can sign this- STOP SPYING ON US
Call your MP. Talk to your neighbours, your family, your friends and get them to take action.

Additional state sponsored tyrannical moves made by the so called freedom lovin' government of Canada can be read about here Ottawa prepares to strengthen preventative policing powers

Preventative policing- in other words no actual crime necessary

The Canadian government is expected to lower the threshold for preventative arrests and restrict the movements of alleged radicals as part of legislation to fight terrorism.
Ottawa is also looking to revise the Passenger Protect system to make it easier to keep individuals from boarding planes.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper recently promised a bill soon that will address shortcomings in the tools that security agencies and law enforcement have to thwart terror attacks.

The Low Dose Makes the Poison- EDC's & the Chemical Manipulation of Humanity

This is from 2009. Yes, 2009. Six years back.

First a 7 minute interview!- Air Date: Week of September 4, 2009

stream/download this segment as an MP3 file

 Modern toxicology doesn't typically test chemicals for what they do at low doses. But, sometimes, small amounts of substances can be harmful to human health, especially when it comes to the hormone-mimicking chemicals known as endocrine disruptors.
Transcript: I will highlight some interesting bits!

CURWOOD: It’s Living on Earth. I’m Steve Curwood.
YOUNG: And I’m Jeff Young.
When toxicologists test a chemical’s safety they typically use high doses to find health problems. But that approach has missed the potential dangers of some substances that can be hazardous in tiny amounts. They’re known as endocrine disruptors because they mimic or block hormones. Some, like bisphenol A, and phthalates, are common ingredients in plastics and other consumer items.
Recently, ( keep in mind, please this interview is nearly 6 years old)the Government’s National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences published a paper challenging regulators to change chemical safety tests to reflect this emerging scientific understanding about low doses. Dr. J. Peterson Myers is the lead author.

MYERS: Our regulatory safety net, the FDA or the EPA, the all depend upon a core assumption – that when they test at high doses those tests will reveal what’s happening at low doses. The problem is that when you’re dealing with contaminants that behave like hormones, it doesn’t work that way.

Pete Myers (Courtesy of Environment Health Sciences)
They do one thing at high doses and potentially something completely different at low doses. So if you are dependent upon high dose testing which is the way our system works, you will never see the low dose effects. And what that means is all of the high dose testing that we’ve done for decades have been blind to this type of effect.
YOUNG: Why is it that these chemicals can start to show problems at low doses instead of at high doses?

MYERS: What hormones and these contaminants do is at very low doses they turn on and off genes. Genes are being turned on and off trillions of times a second throughout your lifetime. And the orchestration of that is absolutely vital to life. If the genes get turned on or off at the wrong time, that’s gonna lead to a problem. You’re gonna lack a protein that might be important for example in suppressing a tumor or in controlling the growth of your heart. And the body’s control system for these genes is designed to function at really, really low levels. The low dose is the poison!
This is precisely the issue that was pointed out to readers here, in the post from last week which included an excellent video,  relinked below, these minute doses are altering our genetics. This has been known for years and years.- Petro/Chemical Lobby win- The Chemical Manipulation of Humanity to worsen
After watching this video you will realize that it is exactly these small amounts, combined all together that are the problem. These miniscule amounts are altering our DNA and making us ill.
Back to the interview from 09:
YOUNG: How low are we talking about?
MYERS: We’re talking parts per trillion to parts per billion to low parts per million.

YOUNG: And this is not even in the area where the safety system is designed to look.
MYERS: The safety system is not designed to look there. It starts at parts per thousand and rarely gets to low parts per million and never gets to parts per billion.
YOUNG: So we’ve all heard the phrase “the dose is the poison.” And that really is the assumption that a lot of toxicology is working on.
MYERS: It’s an assumption that’s been around since the 16th century. It was based upon work by a guy named Paracelsus in Switzerland. And the way the tests work today is we think that by testing at high doses we’re gonna see everything. So that once we get to a dose that’s intermediate and we don’t see anything, we’re golden.
But the science is telling us that at really low doses as contaminants mimic hormones. They can have effects that are totally unpredictable by what happens at high doses. And now we’re watching as toxicology is overturned by new science from endocrinology. Endocrinology is the study of hormones and its only because endocrinologists brought their skills and knowledge into this field and began asking these new questions that we began seeing the results like this beginning about a dozen years ago.
Considering this interview is from 09- Myers is informing us all that this endocrine affect has been known since the late '90's
YOUNG: So it’s emerging science, but it’s not brand spanking new. Why haven’t we been looking for this sort of response when we’re trying to determine whether or not a substance is safe?
MYERS: I should emphasize that it’s not even close to brand spanking new. It’s solid in endocrinology. This is something that physicians have to structure their drug deliveries around. They know that at low doses you can cause effects that don’t happen at high doses. In fact, you can cause the opposite effect.
And the best example of that is a compound called Tamoxifen that’s used by physicians to cure breast cancer. It works at high doses to suppress the growth of the breast cancer tumor. That’s exactly what you want it to do. But at a level about a million fold beneath that toxic dose, it turns on genes that are responsive to estrogens and causes to breast tumor to grow. And if you only to the classic experiments of high doses until you don’t find and effect, you miss this.
So, let's talk about that highlighted bit above? This is NOT new science. This is in point of fact, old known science. This is the science that big pharma would/should be engaging in, and likely covering up, when testing and recommending dosages etc- Their science would revolve around the endocrine systems ability to deliver drugs to a patient.
YOUNG: And are we beginning to see that that’s happening, that the findings from endocrinology are indeed being put to work in our safety system?
MYERS: Well, not yet. There’s a battle underway today over bispenol A. The low dose experiments say it’s risky and we shouldn’t be using it with food products. But to date the agency reviews of bisphenol A have basically depended upon traditional high dose experiments by contract laboratories, and have not been willing to pay attention to the low dose studies published by academic scientists doing this new research.
Another endocrine disrupting compound that has been shown to have these different effects at low doses than at high doses are some of the phthalates, a common plasticizer added to plastic to make it pliable and soft. This fascinating work showing that at really low doses phthalates alter our responsiveness to allergens. They make us hyper allergic. So the standard tests that are used to assess toxicity don’t even begin to tell you about this effect of phthalates.
Phalates are a group of chemicals used to make plastics pliable. (Courtesy of Breast Cancer Fund)
Interestingly, we know that people today are experiencing increasing frequency of allergic diseases like asthma and like allergies. And now we’re seeing that one possible mechanism of it could be our exposures to phthalates.

YOUNG: So maybe that gives us some insight into why the bisphenol A issue is so hard fought. It’s about more than just BPA.
MYERS: It is about more than just BPA. BPA itself is a big deal. You do the calculation and it’s worth about $800,000 an hour. You can buy a lot of lawyers to defend your product with $800,000 an hour in revenue. But BPA is the poster child of this low dose debate. And if BPA is regulated based on low dose effects, it explicitly acknowledges that the regulatory system has been blind to these types of effects. And BPA is not the only one that’s gonna have to be re-examined.
Ok? BPA and BPS- That was covered here at the blog- BPA has been removed in a few countries, in a limited manner- The move was a bait and switch. The consumer was informed they were having a toxin removed- Petrochemical BPA- Only to  have it replaced with equally toxic petrochemical BPS

Fetal Brain Damage via Bisphenol S- The “safe” Alternative

Back to the interview!

YOUNG: Now EPA has been taking some steps in this direction. Give me an assessment of what the environmental protection agency’s been doing in terms of these endocrine disrupting chemicals?
MYERS: Very little. There’s a program that’s been underway mandated by the Food Quality Protection Act of 1996 that instructed the EPA to develop testing and screening criteria for endocrine disrupting compounds. And just this past year, it identified candidates to measure. Congress actually expected them to be measuring these things within a few years and here we are 13 years after the passage of that act and EPA has just identified what candidates they should look at. And it’s a small incomplete list.
So, in 2009, at the time of the interview the EPA had been dragging it's collective feet for 13 years already- taking us back to the late '90's- How are you all liking your years and years of petrochemical poisoning? ( I'm not and have made changes in my life to address these toxins as much as I possibly can) The signs, as I have said repeatedly, are all around us- Cancer. Diabetes. Asthma. Deformed babies. Gender bending people. Plummeting birth rates. Breast Cancer increases. Prostrate Cancer increasing- and on and on.
YOUNG: That's Dr. Pete Myers, CEO and chief scientist of the non-profit Environmental Health Sciences – that paper on endocrine disrupting chemicals is at our website,

 Do you expect there will be a big mind control psyop concert for this legitimate environmental- life destroying crisis? I don't expect so.  Nor do I wonder, why.

Hezbollah retaliates for Israeli first strike- Missile hits IDF convoy

Israel has launched a ground invasion into Lebanon
A UN peacekeeper was also killed in southern Lebanon, in an incident likely related to the border flare-up.
A missile fired by the Lebanese Hezbollah group struck an Israeli military convoy on Wednesday, an apparent retaliation for a deadly airstrike attributed to Israel that killed six Hezbollah fighters in Syria earlier this month.
Israel reported unspecified casualties from the attack, and its military said it responded with aerial and ground attacks into Lebanon, including at least 50 artillery shells according to Lebanese officials. A Spanish peacekeeper was killed in southern Lebanon, in what the United Nations said was an incident likely related to the border flare-up.
Lieut. Col. Peter Lerner, an Israeli military spokesman, said there were Israeli casualties in the attack, but did not elaborate. The military said it was responding with aerial and ground strikes on Hezbollah positions. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Israel would respond “forcefully.”
In a statement, Hezbollah said its fighters destroyed a number of Israeli vehicles that were carrying Israeli officers and soldiers and caused casualties among “enemy ranks.”

The Israeli military said an anti-tank missile hit an Israeli military vehicle near the Israeli-Lebanese border on Wednesday, and said residents of the area had been ordered to remain in their homes.
An hour later, mortars were fired at several Israeli military locations on Mount Dov and Mount Hermon, the Israeli military said
 Can't forget the Israeli strikes on Syria!

More on Israel's twin hits on Syria- IAF and Shelling


 UPDATE # 1:
Seven IDF  soldiers lightly to moderately injured -2 IDF soldiers dead
Lebanon's foreign ministry denounced the Israeli shelling and airstrikes on Hezbollah targets in Lebanese territory on Wednesday, which followed an attack on Israeli soldiers, which left at least seven injured and two dead. 
Liberman calls for disproportionate response
 UPDATE # 2:
 Or were 15 IDF soldiers killed?  IDF Vehicle Comes Under Fire on Lebanon Border, 15 Israeli Soldiers Killed

  Israeli artillery fire killed the UN peacekeeper (I suspected as much when reading the early reporting) 
 BEIRUT // A United Nations peacekeeper was killed in southern Lebanon on Wednesday by Israeli artillery shells.

Before the  (Hezbollah) attack, Israel had deployed tanks and drones along the frontier at several points
 So, here is my question:  Did Israel strike the area the UN peacekeeper was stationed in,  to kick this whole thing off ? What is the timeline? 

UPDATE # 4: Spain blames Israel for death of peacekeeper 

Spain's ambassador to the United Nations is blaming Israel for the death of a Spanish U.N. peacekeeper during the Israeli military's exchange of fire with the Lebanese militant Hezbollah group in a disputed border area.
"It was because of this escalation of violence, and it came from the Israeli side," Spanish Ambassador Roman Oyarzun Marchesi told reporters.
 The U.N. peacekeeper has been identified as Cpl. Francisco Javier Soria Toledo, 36, and U.N. officials have said only that the cause of his death is under investigation.
The Security Council condemned the peacekeeper's death in the strongest terms and offered its deepest sympathies.

Again, I ask did Israel strike the area the UN peacekeeper was stationed in, to provoke a response from Hezbollah?  The Spanish Ambassador said-" this escalation of violence came from the Israeli side"

Brief but extremely relevant digression!

For the Canadians and other interested readers: Israel has targeted many a UN peacekeeper, through the years, including those stationed in Lebanon- Including a Canadian! Which was hushed up dam quick by the Canadian government! 2006- Stephen(loves Israel more then Canada) Harper
Hess-von Kruedener, from Kingston, Ont.,was one of the observers killed in a bomb shelter under a building marked as a UN post. 
UN Secretary General Kofi Annan has suggested the post was deliberately targeted.
Killed in a bomb shelter under a building marked, clearly as a UN post
Prime Minister Stephen Harper says he doesn't believe Israel deliberately attacked a United Nations post in southern Lebanon in a bombing that killed four UN observers, including a Canadian.
"I certainly doubt that to be the case," Harper said on Wednesday
However... this man's wife/widow, made it very clear that Israel was attacking the UN post and this was corroborated by reports at the time-

 Cynthia Hess-Von Krudener, widow of the dead Canadian peacekeeper asserts that Israel intended to destroy the bunker. She says that in the days prior to his death, her husband emailed her with concerns about Israeli bombing of Lebanese schools and hospitals. One of his emails speaks about Israel waging “a campaign of terror against the Lebanese people.” Ms. Hess-Von Krudener believes that Israel destroyed the UN post to silence the reports of the peacekeepers: Obviously they [the Israelis] were unhappy with what they [the peacekeepers] were observing. Maybe that post was in the way as well. I know my husband was reporting war crimes. And I guess [the Israelis] don’t want to deal with that.”
"In a briefing note to the UN, Jane Lute,assistant secretary general for peacekeeping operations, said the IDF had been repeatedly firing too close to the patrol base on Tuesday."
Ireland's Foreign Ministry said Wednesday that a senior Irish soldier working in south Lebanon warned the Israelis six times that they were putting the lives of UN observers in danger with their air strikes.
"On six separate occasions, he was in contact with the Israelis to warn them that their bombardment was endangering the lives of UN staff in south Lebanon," said aspokesperson forIreland's Department of Foreign Affairs
"He warned, 'You have to address this problem or lives may be lost.'"
 Lives were lost. At the hands of the IDF and Canada's so called Prime Minister excused the loss of a Canadian life. This is why I ask repeatedly if Israel struck the peacekeeper as a provocation? This is Israel's modus operundi.

More on Israel's twin hits on Syria- IAF and Shelling

Israeli war planes striking Syria- Presently!- Right now! Second strike in 24 hours 

The overall focus of the warmongering media is 'retaliation by Israel'- This is a  non credible meme. It can not, should not,  be believed- Period. The attack launched by Israel yesterday against Syria was planned and executed by Israel- not retaliatory. (Read yesterday's post- linked above for the explanation of the fact!)

McClatchy News

  • Israeli aircraft struck Syrian government artillery positions early Wednesday as tensions mounted along the Israeli-held Golan Heights a week and a half after an Israeli airstrike killed an Iranian general and six members of the militant group Hezbollah.

Abundant Israeli aggression in a short period of time

Israeli army spokesman Lt. Col. Peter Lerner said the early morning airstrikes were in response to the firing from Syria of at least two rockets that struck the Golan Heights on Tuesday. The rockets landed in open areas and caused no damage, but Israeli forces have been on high alert for retaliation since the deaths of the Iranian and Hezbollah members.
“The IDF holds the Syrian government accountable for all attacks emanating from its territory and will operate by any means necessary to defend Israeli civilians,” Lerner said. “Such blatant breaches of Israeli sovereignty will not be tolerated.”
Israel is fully aware the rocket firings, if true at all, have ZERO to do with the Syrian state or governemnt- If the rocket firings took place, and that is a big IF, they originated with Israel's islamists. The ones Israel has been supporting for years now

The airstrikes were the second Israeli response to the rockets. (No response- planned attacks) Lerner had said earlier that the army had reacted to the rockets “with artillery towards the positions that launched the attack” and had ordered the evacuation of Israel’s Mount Hermon ski resort on the Golan Heights. Israeli media said a Syrian position was shelled.

Lerner said that in contrast to previous incidents, in which errant fire from Syria’s civil war has hit the Golan, the rockets launched Tuesday appeared to have been fired deliberately.
Israel has taken every opportunity to strike Syria whether from "errant" or "appearing" deliberate.

“I don’t think it will end with that, and it’s likely there will be a more aggressive response while trying to avoid a full-scale war,” said Omer Einav, a researcher at the Institute for National Security Studies at Tel Aviv University.
I suspected as much myself- Israel will likely become more aggressive still
Israel has reinforced troops along the frontiers with Lebanon and Syria and stationed an Iron Dome missile defense battery in the area.
Israel reinforced troops and moved Iron dome to Syrian and Lebanese frontiers better then a week prior to their most recent attack on Syria- I mentioned that in yesterday's post. You can also find the original coverage of Israel's prepping for war, again, in this post from January 20/2015- Israel Prepping for more strikes on Syria? "Israel steps up security for possible Syria airstrike"

Love this because it is sooooo true!!

Assad: Israel is Al-Qaeda's Air Force in Syria

Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad on Sunday accused the Israel of conspiring with the Al-Qaeda terrorist group.
“It’s very clear. Because whenever we make advances in some place, they attack in order to undermine the army. It’s very clear,” Assad told the American Foreign Affairs magazine.
“That’s why some in Syria joke, how can you say that Al-Qaeda doesn’t have an air force? They have the Israeli air force,” he added.

Israel is Al-Qaeda's airforce- Love it!!!

Israeli war planes striking Syria- Presently!- Right now! Second strike in 24 hours

Here is the latest: IDF strikes targets in Syria after 2nd red alert in a day 

Right now, present time, it is being reported that IDF warplanes are targeting Syria

"Israeli Air Force warplanes attacked Syrian military targets shortly after midnight on Wednesday (Israeli/Syria time)
 Residents in the northern Golan Heights reported hearing air raid sirens at 12:33 am. The IDF Spokesperson's Unit announced the IAF strikes moments later.
 Arab media outlets reported that artillery positions of the Syrian military's 90th brigade were attacked"

IDF tanks in the Golan Heights earlier in the day
This is the second time in 24 hours that Israel has attacked Syria!
Earlier today Israel shelled Syrian military positions, allegedly, in response to 'rocket fire'
"Israeli forces Tuesday shelled Syrian positions in the southern province of Qunaitera near the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, a monitoring group reported"

The rocket fire claim is bogus. What proof is there that any rocket fire, if it happened at all, originated with Syrian military or had a single thing to do with the legitimate, elected, government of Syria! As my hubby suggests "If a Syrian farted in the wind, Israel would claim it as a chemical attack"! Israel's claim of rocket fire originating with Syria, is so ridiculous, it cannot be taken seriously. Israel was looking for any justification, anything they could spin, anything at all, to attack Syria. An attack Israel has been wanting, has prepped for, has planned for, has desired, for as long as I have been blogging on the Syrian situation.

FLASHBACK!: To my post from January 20/2015- Just one week ago!

Israel Prepping for more strikes on Syria? "Israel steps up security for possible Syria airstrike"

Quoting from that previous post.......
 This reads to me as if Israel is going to up their airstrikes in support of their Islamist terrorist/fighters aka NATO's mercs
 I actually don't see this as prepping for 'retaliation' for Israel's most recent strike on Syria, or any of the previous strikes. The moves to me are way more suggestive that Israel is about to make one or more strikes on Syria, Lebanon or on both nations simultaneously
Israel is undertaking the attacks, it has planned for, while the world is distracted by the Auschwitz memorial- Not a coincidence.

Private Central Banks Working Together to assist US Federal Reserve

 Gazing into my crystal ball................

As you read this article below it should be quite clear that the ECB stimulus, Canada’s Central Bank rate cut and the Swiss decoupling from the Euro were ALL moves undertaken to enable the Federal Reserve to keep interest rates down and the US dollar high! 

Swiss shocker!? Swiss National Bank moves to Ditch Euro Cap- Sending Shockwaves?
Swiss Business Leaders & Politicos at White House PROMISING US Job Creation??!

In plain words, through the cooperative/conniving acts of global central banksters, working together, the US will not have to raise interest rates. And the stock market should get a nice boost too!

* The ECB massively increased stimulus, pushing the EURO down against the US dollar
+ The Swiss decoupling increased the US dollar
+ Canada’s interest rate cut, caused the Canadian dollar to decrease against the US dollar
+ Standard and Poors downgrades Ruble to junk (ht Anthony for reminding me of that!)
= The Fed will not raise interest rates, because there is simply no need to do so, thanks to the Swiss, Canadian & Europeans central banks working together along with the S&P Credit Ratings- Ruble downgrade

Of course, I could be mistaken, but as of today, right now, based on the info at hand. Global collusion to prop up the US dollar is exactly as I see it!

Highlighting the interesting bits

NEW YORK (Reuters) - The Federal Reserve could be key for Wall Street next week as investors get to hear from the U.S. central bank for the first time since a series of moves by its global peers, including the European Central Bank's massive stimulus plan.

Thursday's larger-than-expected stimulus package from the ECB lifted U.S. stocks, helping indexes post gains for the week after three straight weeks of losses.

But the increased stimulus measures from the ECB and elsewhere globally, including the Bank of Canada, may make it tougher for the Fed to move ahead with its own plan to start raising interest rates by mid-year, lest U.S. economic policy move out of sync with the rest of the world.

"Global central policy is not one of their mandates, but I think they have to acknowledge it, because this is not just global economic headwinds, this is actually the moves of other central banks. They've got to take that into account," said Erik Davidson, chief investment officer for Well Fargo Private Bank in San Francisco.
Should the United States raise rates when other major developed economies are being more expansive, that could boost the dollar, putting further pressure on commodity prices - which because they are denominated in dollars become more expensive for non-U.S. investors - and adding to the threat of deflation.
The only way the US will raise is if they are attempting to increase commodity prices, which I just don't see at this time- So I am still sticking with my prognostication- no interest rate increase in the US.
The Fed is expected to reiterate that those global risks have not yet put the U.S. recovery or the Fed's rate plans off track when it issues its policy statement at the close of its two-day meeting on Wednesday.
The timing of the Fed's eventual rate move has been a top concern for investors. Stocks rallied when the Fed said after its December meeting that it would take a patient approach toward raising interest rates and gave an upbeat assessment of the U.S. economy.

The sharp decline in oil prices that began last June and worries about deflation could keep the Fed on hold for longer, analysts said.

"It bodes well for the Fed to be patient," said Peter Cardillo, chief market economist at Rockwell Global Capital in New York. "There's no inflation here; the problem is deflation. If oil prices were to go lower, that could create more of a problem."

From the last 24 hours-

From Persian Spring (Iran) to Today’s Drone Strikes etc., in Yemen

Updated!- scroll down

Persian Spring refers to today's earlier post- Is it Time for a "Persian Spring"? Destabilizing Iran
I am connecting Yemen and Iran, because, they are connected. The western powers aka NATO/Israel connect them- Whether they really are, matters not. We are looking at the fact that, as stated, NATO/Israel connects Iran and Yemen- So, it is not coincidence that a Persian Spring is being touted as Yemen is being destabilized.
Just to be straight up front and clear- There was NO Houthi coup in Yemen.
It is very obvious that the western backed transitional government stepped down.
(See here and here and here and finally- HERE)

First- the Yemen government did not want to keep the power sharing agreement they had made with the Houthi populations

Second- Saudi Arabia had cut the funding last September 2014. And appear to have cut the remaining funding quite  recently.

Saudi Arabia cuts of funding, again, to Yemen government

“Another lawmaker, Mohamed Saleh Ali, offered a different explanation. According to Mr. Ali, the meeting was canceled (Sunday January 25/15) partly because the president of Parliament was traveling to Saudi Arabia, which sees the Houthis as an extension of Iranian influence and has cut off nearly all aid to the Yemeni government.”

So Saudi Arabia has now cut off nearly all aid to Yemen! When was this done? Was this funding cut the impetus for the mass government resignation? We know that on Thursday the President resigned after the Prime Minister and Cabinet stepped down. Did Saudi Arabia cut funding in order to take down the government?

Digression- It seems that the death of the 'Wily King', Thursday January 22nd,  didn't change a thing! (Was he in charge, really?) Saudi King Abdullah- Dead- A Wily King?

 Saudi Arabia reduces funding to Yemen 2014

Last September (2014) ,when the Houthis had originally worked out a power sharing arrangement with the western backed government, Saudi Arabia had also reduced funding to the government
“The Houthis are also believed to get financing from Iran, and concern about that led Saudi Arabia last year to cut off $4 billion in funding to the Yemeni government when the Houthis became part of it
It is often suggested the Houthis get funding from Iran? Though I have yet to see any real connectivity via war mongering media reporting. What is abundantly clear is that Saudi Arabia had been propping up the Yemen government.- Similarly Saudi Arabia props up Egypt.

Houthis are quite moderate:
 Houthis may be a lot more moderate than it suggests, according to many diplomats and analysts who have followed them closely.
“The Houthis are not Hezbollah,” said Charles Schmitz, an expert on the group and a professor at Towson University, referring to the Iranian-supported group that dominates Lebanon and is actively fighting on behalf of President Bashar al-Assad in Syria. “They are domestic, homegrown, and have very deep roots in Yemen, going back thousands of years.
April Alley, a senior analyst for the International Crisis Group in Sana, said: “Theoretically there is quite a bit of common ground in Yemen between the Houthis and the U.S., particularly when it comes to security issues and Al Qaeda. But so far it’s not been enough to overcome the obstacles. The Houthis have their own limits in which they can engage the Americans given the political narrative they have propagated.”
Israel's concerns
Israeli analysts have viewed the rise of the Houthis with concern, worrying that a pro-Iranian government in Sana could disrupt shipping lanes through the Red Sea, a vital passageway for Israel. “The fact that an ally of Iran basically now controls another Arab capital is of great concern to Israel,” said Jonathan Spyer, an Israeli international affairs analyst.
Drone Strikes: US Drone war survives Yemen government resignation.

The attack in Marib province was the first apparent drone strike since the departure of Hadi, and signals Washington's campaign against AQAP is continuing, at least in its use of drones, despite his absence.
A suspected U.S. drone strike on a car in eastern Yemen killed three men believed to be al Qaeda militants on Monday, officials said, suggesting Washington's remotely-piloted air war has survived the overthrow of the country's U.S.-backed leader.

The US has NOT evacuated the embassy. Only closing it to the public

The U.S. embassy said on Monday that it was closing to the public until further notice.

Destabilization!: Some, but not all, Southern provinces announce independence from central Yemeni government

A number of southern provinces (2) such as Ibb and Taiz have “declared independence” from Sana’a, while other provinces such as Ma’rib said they would no longer accept any instructions from the capital.

Wanna bet the US and company are totally OK with this declaration of independence?

UPDATE! One tiny news item- more details have emerged
 Yemen rivals sign deal to form salvation government

Yemen rivals sign deal to form salvation government

Yemen rivals signs deal to form salvation government

 U.N. envoy Jamel Benomar had earlier met with leaders of Shiite Houthi militia
The meeting was among a series of talks that the Moroccan diplomat was holding in Sanaa to try to broker an agreement after Western-backed President Abdrabuh Mansur Hadi resigned, (NO COUP, as I had mentioned) U.N. spokesman Stephane Dujarric told reporters.

 Benomar said Hadi and his cabinet were effectively under house arrest (so the quitter says, but, I don't believe him) and that violence could erupt at any time, (this western backed leader is a real drama queen) but he added that a power-sharing deal "was possible," the diplomats said.
 The envoy was also in touch with Gulf countries which have come out in strong support of Hadi, whose resignation on Thursday has yet to be endorsed by the parliament.
There was NO coup, this guy quit. The plan the US/Israel etc had for framing the Shiite militias failed.  Likely the US pressured Hadi to quite and he did! The cutting off of funding from the Saudi's sealed the deal- No coup!

Is it Time for a "Persian Spring"? Destabilizing Iran

I see this article as total admission /acknowledgement of the complete falseness of all the Arab springs- Every last one of them created by the Western "democracies". Through front companies, charities, proxies etc., with the help of privatized military contractors, mercenaries and worse. All done under the cover of the NATO global tyranny umbrella. Killing, destroying, maiming, harming is big business!!!

Oh, sorry, did I say killing, destroying maiming, harming is big business? I actually meant human rights upholding and building democracy is simply the right thing to do....;-)

Relevant excerpts from this article-Is it time for a Persian Spring

As the debate heats up between Congress and the Administration over new Iran sanctions and Houthi rebels take over Yemen’s government (LIE- See here and here and here and finally- HERE) while the U.S. continues to battle the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria – there needs to be a different focus for a solution in the war against terrorism; and that could be a “Persian Spring.”
The global war against terrorism should include ‘degrading’ the Iranian Regime, and not only focus on the war against the Islamic State.
Dr. Majid Sadeghpour is the political director of the Organization of Iranian American Communities (OIACUS). The OIACUS is one of several organizations that want to see the future of Iran be democratic. The National Council of Resistance of Iran is another organization that represents multiple groups who want see a democratic Iran.
Keep in mind that name and that organization!
An ‘Egyptian style’ revolution where millions of people took a stand against terrorism (against terrorism?)could be possible in Iran, but the people need the political support of the United States and international community.

An outright admission the US was behind the Egyptian spring- Part 1 and 2

A Peshmerga ( Unnamed Sunni Muslim- Kurd/ISIS) soldier spoke to Breitbart News about the influence of Iran in the Baghdad government, stating that “you see pictures of Khomeini in the government buildings.” (Is he scared of photos? He said that “soon you will see Iranians as pilots in the jets that you [U.S.] are providing them” and “the equipment and weapons that the U.S. gives to Baghdad will go the Iranians, and help Iran.”
Sounds like this unnamed ‘peshmerga’ sunni/muslim/kurd probable ISIS fighter, is creating the narrative- fixing the intelligence?

Iran is an underlying problem in the global war against terrorism. As the world witnessed in Egypt, miracles can happen. The people of Iran can stand up against the terrorist theocracy of the Iranian Regime, but they will need the support of the international community.

Which means the US and company will have to get busy fomenting destabilization and terror- to create “miracles”

There are several different ways that the United States could support Iranian opposition groups. One example lies in how the U.S. funds multiple “democracy programs” through USAID and other State Department initiatives in various places throughout the world. The United States should start focusing on increasing democracy programs for Iranian opposition groups. There are Iranian opposition groups are all over the world, including the United States and Europe.
The United States is also training opposition forces to remove Assad, but another idea is to start training opposition forces for the removal of the Iranian Regime, which would then remove a pillar holding up the Assad Regime.
The United States spends millions on programs under the Broadcasting Board of Governors, such as “Voice of America” and “Alhurra,” which were created to support freedom and democratic values to people all over the world. These are programs that should be utilized to bring about democratic reform in Iran
 President Obama will host a summit on February 18th to fight “violent extremism” where a global strategy to defeat terrorism will take shape. Part of this strategy should include supporting opposition groups against the Iranian Regime. Egypt should be the model to follow on how a nation can stand against a terrorist regime.
 And so it goes..... The plotters continue plotting. The destabilzers continue to destroy nations and displace people. The war profiteers continue to rake in the profits. The bankster scum continue to make money from indebting people. And Israel? Becomes stronger through the weakening of all other nations in the area.

Foreigners in Ukraine- Swedes with Azov battalion & American Mercs. Indeed!

We are always getting so called news about Russian troops in Ukraine. Unfounded of course. I can't see any reason for Russia to send troops into Ukraine, myself.

So let us speak and read of the foreigners in Ukraine, fighting alongside the Ukie fighters.
Some of you may have seen the American masquerading as a Ukrainian soldier at Saker's blog?
I will embed that video at the bottom of this post. However, let's take a look at one recently deceased, Swede, obviously a neo nazi or skin head of some sort- "volunteering" in Ukraine- Yah, I laugh. This guy was no 'volunteer'. He is clearly part of the NATO irregulars.
Check him out, readers, check him out!
Swedish volunteer with Azov Battalion dies in car accident
Dies in car accident? Two links to source- First and Second
(the second link is necessary because it provides us with the full text of the original Kyiv Post article)

Leo Sjöholm, 31, served in the Azov Battalion during the war between Ukraine and Russia in the Donbas.
Yup, that's your kind hearted volunteer, do gooder. Just wanting to help and all that drivel!
Leo Sjöholm, a 31-year-old Swedish volunteer with the Azov Battalion, was killed in a car accident near the city of Berdyansk in Zaporizhya Oblast while on military duty on Jan. 8.
 This guy is no volunteer- He has been in Ukraine since Maidan! Recall the brutal thugs present at Maidan? Our 'volunteer' was one of them.

 Leo Sjöholm, a 31-year-old Swedish volunteer with the Azov Battalion, was killed in a car accident near the city of Berdyansk in Zaporizhya Oblast while on military duty on Jan. 8.
Azov has a special subdivision of 15 foreign volunteers, Sweden’s Sjöholm and Mikael Skillt were among them. Skillt still serves there. Having come to Ukraine during the latest stage of the EuroMaidan Revolution
Prior to joining Azov, Sjöholm went through studies at Volunteer Military Organization in Sweden and served at French Foreign Legion. In Azov, he was teaching military courses, while also was studying Ukrainian.

The French Foreign Legion- chock full of sickos and psychos
The world contains more misfits, sadists, masochists, and people who enjoy fighting than we sometimes like to suppose. How else can one explain the fact that the French Foreign Legion is heavily overrecruited?
 Many legionnaires took a masochistic pleasure in an unhappy life.
 Most men who enlist in their own national armies are no more and no less mercenaries than legionnaires.
Leo's mother was none the less very proud of her son?!

In case you have doubts about Swedish Neo-nazis in Ukraine? :Swedish Neo-Nazis fighting in Ukraine
"They are not fighting for a democratic Ukraine," Anton Shekhotsov, a Ukrainian political scientist who researches right extremist movements in Europe, told Sveriges Radio (SR).  "Their vision of Urkaine is a fascist dictatorship."
A Fascist Dictatorship?
How strange that the so called democratic west stands behind these terrible individuals as they inflict unimaginable suffering on civilians- Of course, it's not really strange at all.

Now, about that very American sounding Ukrainian soldier?

Can't forget about Greece

Greece: Exit Polls Indicate Big Win for Syriza

Greece: Exit Polls Indicate Big Win for Syriza

Because we can't forget about Greece!
The latest and a relink.

The Latest!-Exit polls signal big Syriza win

 The polls indicate that Syriza took between 36% and 38% of the total vote, with the ruling New Democracy party a distant second with 26%-28%.

It is unclear whether Syriza has enough votes to govern the country alone.
Syriza's Alexis Tsipras has pledged to renegotiate Greece's debt arrangement with international creditors.
He has also vowed to reverse many of the austerity measures adopted by Greece since a series of bailouts began in 2010.
The result is being closely watched outside Greece, where it is believed a Syriza victory could encourage radical leftist parties across Europe.
The exit polls suggested Syriza had won between 148 and 154 parliamentary seats. They need 151 seats for an outright majority.
'Historic victory' 
Syriza hailed the exit polls as "a return of social dignity and social justice".
"What's clear is we have a historic victory that sends a message that does not only concern the Greek people, but all European peoples," spokesman Panos Skourletis told Greek television.

Syriza supporters in Athens greeted the exit polls with jubilation
 Relink from a 2011 post-

Debtocracy- Greece's "Debt Crisis"


Debtocracy International Version by ThePressProject


Unfortunately Syriza wants to keep the Euro- I would prefer each nation goes back to it's own- 
But, that's a story for another day. Here is hoping Syriza is not just an Obama- hope/change illusory party. 

Oh and btw- The commercial from the EU that opens this video? Watch the video and you will understand my reference.  As if the EU has any real concern or issue with that aspect of the  abuse of humanity!

Odious Debt

All of our governments incur illegitimate debt. All of them. Canadian. American. France. UK. German. Etc., That is the very core of private central banking. 
Every dollar is odious debt.

Saudi King Abdullah- Dead- A Wily King?

 Sorry for the fuzzy post- Something very 'earth shattering' occurred! Sure caught me by surprise. What will happen now?
Power struggles in Saudi Arabia?- The oil prices?- Supporting fanatical jihadists in partnership with NATO? Yemen?

Or, will the status quo remain?

Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz, the sixth king of Saudi Arabia, who has died most likely at age 90, was a master politician who gained a reputation as a reformer without changing his country’s power structure and maintained good relations with the United States while striking an independent course in foreign policy.(?)

King Abdullah pumped billions of dollars into modernization of the Saudi educational system, opened up the Saudi economy, ushered his country into the World Trade Organization, curbed the authority of the religious police, pardoned some victims of an unforgiving judiciary, met with then-Pope Benedict XVI and espoused interfaith tolerance, cracked down on extremism, reached out to women and offered a plan for Arab peace with Israel.

Yet the cumulative effect of his policies was to reinforce the House of Saud’s absolute power over the country. His embrace of reform did not extend to politics. Dissenters who went too far were jailed or silenced, and he scrapped a brief experiment with elections.

At the end of his reign, Saudi Arabia was a different country from the one in which he came to power — much more open to economic entrepreneurs, more receptive to public discussion of its many problems, and even courting tourists. But in another sense, the country was unchanged: All power ultimately lay with the royal family, supported by a compliant religious establishment, and ordinary citizens still were disenfranchised.
When human rights and social justice advocates sent King Abdullah a petition in the spring of 2003 seeking an elected parliament, term limits on princes holding government positions and public access to the trials of accused terrorists, most of the signers were jailed briefly, and the king granted none of their requests. After seven decades of al-Saud rule, it would have been astonishing if he had.

The country’s Basic Law of Government, promulgated by Fahd in 1992, stipulates that the country is a monarchy and that it is the duty of citizens to obey their king. The government did not waver from that mandate during King Abdullah’s years on the throne.

His reputation as a progressive and generally benign monarch lay in the creation of new institutions that appeared to empower the Saudi public, such as the forums of the National Dialogue and a government human rights commission that occasionally allowed people to sound off without actually challenging the king’s power.
 A promoter of illusory freedom. Sounds like any corrupt western government!

And inside the royal family, King Abdullah’s adroit maneuvering largely neutralized the dissatisfaction and resentment of powerful half-brothers who had been his rivals for power

Before King Abdullah, the greatest threats to the al-Saud regime were domestic: a rising tide of religious extremism supported by al-Qaeda;(that’s nonsense) and a restive citizenry energized by global information networks and unhappy with domestic corruption.
 The populace was likely not the biggest threat to the al Saud regime- Perhaps a  distant threat to be sure, but, one that was kept in check with illusory rights. Other nations were likely a bigger threat- Israel. US. UK. The threat that kept the Saudi monarchy in it’s place.

King Abdullah protected his flank by shoring up his country’s long-standing alliance with the United States.

King Abdullah could not resolve the fundamental paradox of Saudi foreign policy — that the regime is dependent for its security on its alliance with a country viewed with disfavor by much of the population. But he obscured the problem by boosting relations with China, Russia and other countries outside the American sphere of influence

Under King Abdullah, Saudi Arabia strengthened its security cooperation with the United States, as the two countries reached agreement on a long-term U.S. commitment to train a new armed force to guard vital Saudi oil installations

King Abdullah was perhaps best known to the world for his introduction of the so-called Abdullah Plan for Arab Peace With Israel, which he first floated in a 2002 conversation with New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman. That plan calls for a full peace between all Arab states and Israel if Israel returns to the borders that defined it before the 1967 war — that is, if Israel gives up the West Bank, the Golan Heights and East Jerusalem.

Yet the cumulative effect of his policies was to reinforce the House of Saud’s absolute power over the country. His embrace of reform did not extend to politics. Dissenters who went too far were jailed or silenced, and he scrapped a brief experiment with elections.

His reputation as a progressive and generally benign monarch lay in the creation of new institutions that appeared to empower the Saudi public, such as the forums of the National Dialogue and a government human rights commission that occasionally allowed people to sound off without actually challenging the king’s power.

On the contrary, the steps King Abdullah took to limit the power of the Muslim religious establishment and to institutionalize the process of royal succession, combined with the government’s relentless campaign against homegrown jihadists who began a campaign of domestic terrorism in 2003, left the House of Saud stronger than it was before he took the throne.

And inside the royal family, King Abdullah’s adroit maneuvering largely neutralized the dissatisfaction and resentment of powerful half-brothers who had been his rivals for power. He opposed the decision by Fahd and the powerful defense minister Prince Sultan to invite U.S. troops into Saudi Arabia after the 1990 Iraqi invasion of Kuwait, for example, but avoided a public breach that could have weakened the family.

Before King Abdullah, the greatest threats to the al-Saud regime were domestic: a rising tide of religious extremism supported by al-Qaeda; and a restive citizenry energized by global information networks and unhappy with domestic corruption.

As a result, U.S. Ambassador James B. Smith could say with some justification in October 2009, shortly after taking up his post in Riyadh, that “the relationship between Saudi Arabia and the United States has never been stronger; it has also never been more multifaceted or important. The United States values greatly the cooperation we have had with Saudi Arabia on a wide range of issues.”

Those issues include terrorism inspired by Islamic extremism, which Saudi Arabia nurtured for years for domestic and international reasons. After the onset of terrorist bombings inside the kingdom in 2003, Abdullah, then the crown prince, and other senior members of the royal family realized that the monster they had helped create had turned against them, and their response was swift and firm.

By the time President George W. Bush left office in January 2009, senior officials of his administration had concluded that the Saudi regime was no longer part of the problem but part of the solution to this global threat.

King Abdullah, whose official title was Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, was also prime minister, as is customary in the Saudi system. Domestically, he pumped billions of dollars into new industries and the creation of new cities, but his most enduring legacy besides the coed university may turn out to be the institution known as the Allegiance Council, which he created to resolve uncertainties about the line of succession.

The council consists of 35 senior princes, all sons or grandsons of the first king, Abdul Aziz ibn Saud, who are to meet in secret each time a king dies or is incapacitated to choose the next in line, much as the cardinals of the Catholic Church elect a pope.

If the Allegiance Council had existed in earlier decades, it is doubtful that King Abdullah would have become king, because he was never fully in harmony with the powerful clique of princes known as the “Sudairi Seven,” all sons of Abdul Aziz and his favorite wife, Hassa bint Ahmed al-Sudairi.
 The man who should have/would have never been king? Interesting. Perhaps that's why the WaPo called him the Wily King?

Gilad Atzmon meets historian Robert Faurrisson

Last post for the week- Barring anything earth shattering happening- I am under the weather, presently, but I'll be back

Hat tip Gallier for this really excellent video- I found it powerful, thought provoking, shocking and sad.  I very much found it worth the hour of my  time
Hi Penny
excellent interview Gilad Atzmon meets Robert Faurrisson (in english french subtitles). It's long but top quality.

Information on Mr Faurrisson (avoiding the bias of Wikipedia) I had not heard of this fellow previously. But find his abuse at the hands of the chosen ones just shocking! Free speech in France> Only for Charlie Hebdo, apparently.

Petro/Chemical Lobby using TTIP to weaken European EDC Regulation- The Chemical Manipulation of Humanity

 My EU readership should be particularly disgusted, but, of course we should all be- The planet is one large intertwined system-

EU's food safety agency gives green light to Bisphenol A 

That's right- A pass to Bisphenol A

The European Food Safety Authority’s (EFSA) re-evaluation of Bisphenol A (BPA) exposure and toxicity states that BPA, an endocrine disruptor, poses no health risk to consumers of any age group at current exposure levels.
EFSA, which carries the scientific risk assessment on behalf of the EU, says exposure from a diet, or from a combination of sources such as a diet, dust, cosmetics and thermal paper, is considerably under the safe level, also known as the 'tolerable daily intake' (TDI).
BPA is a chemical compound used in the manufacture of food contact materials such as re-usable plastic tableware and can coatings. Another widespread use of BPA is in thermal paper commonly used in cash register receipts.
Residues of BPA can migrate into food and beverages and be ingested by the consumer, and other sources include thermal paper, cosmetics and dust can be absorbed through the skin and by inhalation.
Although new data have led EFSA’s experts to considerably reduce the safe level of BPA from 50 micrograms per kilogram of body weight per day to four, the highest estimates for dietary exposure, or via a combination of sources, are three to five times lower than the new TDI.
Dr Trine Husøy, a member of EFSA’s expert panel on food contact materials and Chair of its BPA working group, said the panel decided to reevaluate the safety of BPA because of the publication of a huge number of new research studies in recent years.
This led to a public consultation in early 2014, and after weighing up new scientific information on its toxic effects, the CEF Panel concluded that high doses of BPA (hundreds of times above the TDI) are likely to adversely affect the kidney and liver. It may also cause effects on the mammary gland in animals.
“Effects on the reproductive, nervous, immune, metabolic and cardiovascular systems, as well as in the development of cancer are not considered likely at present but they could not be excluded on the available evidence. So, they add to the overall uncertainty about BPA-related hazards and therefore have been considered in the assessment,” Husøy said.
EFSA last assessed dietary exposure to BPA in 2006 when less data was available.
“With significantly more and better data, we have updated and more accurately estimated dietary exposure to BPA for all population groups. As a result, we now know that dietary exposure is four to fifteen times lower than previously estimated by EFSA, depending on the age group,” Husøy added.
This time around, EFSA used new methodologies to take account of the uncertainties regarding potential health effects, exposure estimates and evaluation of risks for humans, such as analysing each uncertainty one by one, so that the expert panel was able to quantify the uncertainties

Hey Penny!! Loving these... I have bitched about this REAL pollution for eons... most people just give you a blank stare.

Have you seen this one? VERY good with Frederick Vom Saal:

 Definitely worth watching! Thanks Buffy for bringing it to my attention.
After watching this video you will realize that it is exactly these small amounts, combined all together that are the problem. These miniscule amounts are altering our DNA and making us ill, globally- watch the video to understand- thanks!

Yemen's President resigns AFTER Cabinet & Prime Minster all step down

By hook or crook, some interested parties were intent on ousting the Yemen government in order to cause a whole lot of instability-

If an attempted false flag fails- Other means can be used. And clearly Plan B kicked in!
All this despite the Houthi’s and Hadi making an agreement, peacefully.
- One that the US/Israel/NATO tyranny was  obviously never going to let pass...

What a agreement, that is democratic and power sharing- The US and co will have none of that- Yemen isn't going away any time soon. No way
Kerry said:

He stressed the powerful rebel militia had declared that Hadi was still president
Sanaa government was accepting many demands put forward by the Houthis in the deal to end a deadly political crisis.
"Gulf Cooperation Council slammed the acts of Houthi rebels as “terrorist”
Of course they did!
So a democratic settlement? Which should be good for all? The US and Israel and NATO are not going to let this stand
What a difference just one day makes!

Sanaa, Yemen (CNN)Yemen's President resigned Thursday night shortly after his Prime Minister and the Cabinet stepped down -- seismic changes in the country's political scene that come just one day after the government and Houthi rebels struck a tentative peace deal meant to end days of turmoil

The Cabinet and Prime Minister Khaled Bahah resigned before Hadi did on Thursday night, with Bahah telling Hadi in a letter that they essentially wanted to wash their hands of "destructive political chaos," an apparent reference to the deal that was to give Houthis more power.

The Houthis call for marginalized political groups to have the right to partnerships in state institutions and fair representation, according to the text of the tentative agreement.

A Houthi official said the rebels would abide by the deal if the President follows a timeline specified in the negotiations for the political process.

This isn't the first time the rebels and the government have hammered out an agreement
 No, it isn't. The first time the President reneged on the agreement to implement a western backed plan of nation destruction.

COINCIDENTALLY.... well not really- USS Iwo Jima, USS Fort McHenry move to Red Sea for possible Yemen evacuation

For possible 'evacuation'! Oh, really?!

The Navy has positioned a pair of amphibious ships in the Red Sea for a possible evacuation of U.S. Embassy personnel from the Yemen capital of Sanaa.
The USS Iwo Jima, an amphibious assault ship, and the USS Fort McHenry, a dock landing ship, were moved in recent hours from the Gulf of Aden to the Red Sea, nearer to Yemen’s capital, U.S. 5th Fleet spokesman Cmdr. Kevin Stephens said. Both ships are part of the Iwo Jima Amphibious Ready Group, and each has Marines embarked from the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit.
“They are ready to support operations to protect Americans in Yemen if that becomes necessary,” Stephens said.
And don't you forget.....
 The group (AQ in Yemen) also took responsibility for this month’s attack against the satirical French newspaper Charlie Hebdo, which killed 12 people.

Petro/Chemical Lobby using TTIP to weaken European EDC Regulation- The Chemical Manipulation of Humanity

An update-
Perhaps the Chemical Manipulation of Humanity will have a secondary theme
Which lobbyist is snooping around? The first Big Brother Lobbyist looks to be "Personal Care Products Council"

I read through for a bit and personally love this statement:
Council Statement. Statement by Beth Lange, PhD, Chief Scientist Personal Care Products Council On The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics’ “Make Cosmetics without Cancer” Campaign
Disheartened about the misinformation......
How many degrees separate the Petro chemical companies from the Personal Products Council?
None? I would bet there is no separation.

The pesticides industry has been accused of lobbying EU and US negotiators involved in the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) talks, in an attempt to weaken the future regulation of endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs).
  As we can see/understand/comprehend unless the populace becomes proactive and engaged, governments will continue to collude with the petro/chemical industry to carry on poisoning us all. Business as usual!
In its report, Lowest Common Denominator, the Center for International Environmental Law (Ciel) says the US pesticide industry body, CropLife, and its European counterpart, the European Crop Protection Association (ECPA), are advocating a risk assessment approach to evaluation of endocrine disruptors, instead of what it calls the “more protective" EU approach.
“This position defies the wealth of information suggesting that EDCs break 'all the rules and assumptions that have guided toxicology through the era of modern chemical regulation'," the report reads.
The ECPA criticised the report, telling Chemical Watch that “the risk assessment process specifically considers vulnerable populations – such as infants and pregnant women – and applies large safety margins.” The current testing designed to assess pesticides in both the US and the EU use the "globally accepted" OECD toolbox of assays and tests for endocrine disruption, the ECPA says.
More on the TTIP, undermining proposed EDC regulations

 According to an article published September 9, 2014 by the European news provider EurActiv the new transatlantic trade and investment partnership (TTIP) could undermine EU legislative efforts regarding endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs). In the article Robert Pederson, food policy coordinator at the multi-stakeholder platform Arc2020, points out that the European Commission is currently considering a revision of the European pesticides legislation, thereby potentially facilitating the marketing of EDC-containing products. Further, Pederson reports on recent efforts by the U.S. and EU to seek a ‘harmonized approach’ on EDCs under the TTIP. In letters sent to the U.S. Trade Representative some industries have called the European ban of neonicotinoid, a specific class of pesticides suspected to harm especially bees, an “abuse of the precautionary principle”, Pederson illustrates. As a consequence he expresses concern that harmonization efforts may undermine European EDC legislation and the EDC criteria still to be decided on.
And still  more on the endocrine disruptors legislation being undermined by the TTIP

Endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDC) are found in a range of product from plastics used for packaging food and drinks to commonly used pesticides. EDCs or just EDs (endocrine disruptors) interfere with hormone systems in humans, animals and plants, and cause “adverse health effects in an intact organism, or its progeny, or (sub)populations” according to the position adopted by the WHO's International Programme on Chemical Safety. EDs are known or suspected to cause a number of health problems such as learning disabilities, attention deficit disorders, cancer and are increasingly linked to obesity and metabolic disorders such as type 2 diabetes.
A recent article on EurActiv suggested that the Commission has intentionally delayed legislation on EDs. The Commission’s 2013 work programme included plans to revise the strategy on EDs to better protect public health and the environment.
Delays producing criteria for identifying EDs were “justified because of the complexity of the issue, evolving science and diverging views among scientists and stakeholders.” However a senior EU official interpreted the delay differently: “The endocrine strategy was blocked because of lobbying by the cosmetics industry”, EurActiv reported. The fear is that, in light of impending trade agreements, a regulatory chill is already starting to bite.
The European Commission, in their revised strategy on EDs, is currently weighing whether to propose changing EU legislation governing the use of pesticides. Such a landmark volte-face would potentially make it much easier for companies to market products containing substances that affect human hormones.
This is a key demand by the ‘crop protection’ (agro-chemical/pesticide) industries on both sides of the Atlantic in US-EU trade talks. In May 2013, CropLife America, agro-chemical lobbyists, wrote to the US Trade Representative, citing the neonicotinoid ban as an example of the “abuse of the precautionary principle by the EU” and described the “categorisation of chemicals as endocrine disruptors currently taking place” as “highly problematic”. Stating that this “runs counter to the science-based risk assessment approach used by the US Environmental Protection Agency”.
In June 2014, the Commission published a roadmap, which contained an option to shift from the current EU approach of banning the use of all EDs in pesticides, towards a model that could allow them to be used as long as certain steps are taken to mitigate the risk.
Recently, it was announced that US and EU will seek a 'Harmonised Approach' on EDs in a pilot program. The initiative on EDs is one of three pilot programs on chemicals launched by the US and EU in parallel to TTIP. The other two programs, which are focused on chemicals screening and labeling, were announced by the EU following the sixth round of TTIP talks held in July.
A spokeswoman from the Environmental Protection Agency in the US, quoted in Inside US Trade,  stated "Our goal is to have a harmonised approach to prioritization and screening of chemicals based on endocrine bioactivity and environmental exposure".
Although very little is known about what will be included in the pilot program due to secrecy arrangements, (= tyranny) the distinct possibility remains that the program will focus on finding a common approach toward the risk assessment of EDs. The overall aim of TTIP is after all to reduce barriers to trade. In this context, the potential is clearly there for negotiators to work towards minimisation of even the chance that the criteria and methods used in one jurisdiction could give a different result than in the other.
How will these efforts at harmonisation affect the Commission’s current review of legislation and policies on EDs, when criteria for EDs have not yet even been agreed? The context for this imbroglio is fraught. The Commission has still has not even agreed internally on what criteria should be used to define such substances.
It is still unclear even which Commission services/agencies from the EU will be involved in the ED program. The Commission's directorate-generals for Health & Consumers (DG SANCO) and the Environment (DG ENV), European Chemical Agency and European Food Safety Authority all play roles regulating EDs in the EU.
The key questions, to our policy makers at the Commission, our newly elected MEPs and Commission elects are: Why is the EU reviewing the legislation – is it to protect public health and the environment or to protect business interests? Will this mean even longer delays in regulating EDs, thus endangering our health and the health of ecosystems, both now and in the future?
