WAR DRUMS: Forgotten treaty could drag U.S and Britain into war with Russia

A treaty signed in 1994 by the US and Britain could pull both countries into a war to protect Ukraine if President Putin’s troops cross into the country. Bill Clinton, John Major, Boris Yeltsin and Leonid Kuchma – the then-rulers of the USA, UK, Russia and Ukraine – agreed to the The Budapest Memorandum as part of the denuclearization of former Soviet republics after the dissolution of the Soviet Union Technically it means that if Russia has invaded Ukraine then it would be difficult for the US and Britain to avoid going to war. Putin installed 150,000 troops along Ukraine’s borders after the overthrow of Moscow ally Viktor Yanukovych by pro-European protesters. More

Obama Skips National Security Team Meeting on Russia, Ukraine

A White House official emailed some reporters to say that President Obama’s team met today to discuss the ongoing situation on Ukraine. It appears President Obama did not attend.  ”The President’s national security team met today to receive an update on the situation in Ukraine and discuss potential policy options. We will provide further updates later this afternoon,” reads the full statement. According to Time magazine’s Zeke Miller, Obama skipped the meeting. “Obama did not attend the meeting, but WH official says he has been briefed by Susan Rice and his national security team,” says Miller. More

 

 

Obamacare causing Target to drop coverage for part-time employees

 We have warned for more than a year that the Affordable Care Act will prove to be one of the most harmful, job-killing, economy-destroying pieces of legislation ever, and with each passing week we are consistently proven correct. One of the boldest – and easiest – predictions we made regarding the ill effects of Obamacare was that the law’s employer mandate would cause a net reduction in employment. The employer mandate, you may recall, is a provision in the law that requires all employers with more than 50 full-time employees to provide them with health insurance coverage. Well, that provision alone, we knew, would cost employers lots of money – costs that would either a) be passed onto customers in the form of higher prices (which is happening); or b) be reduced by reducing the number of full-time employees (which has also been happening, hence the “part-time economy” reference that some fiscal experts have begun to utilize to describe today’s economic conditions). More

 

Could polio or other vaccinations be behind the new “polio-like” Illness outbreak in California?

According to reports, there are now about 25 or more cases, and counting, of a new “polio-like” outbreak in California children. Disease control officials have yet to determine the cause of the outbreak and they are looking for a new virus. Perhaps one direction they should take a look at is polio and other childhood vaccinations.  Initial reports have indicated that the children being affected by the new disease have all been vaccinated against polio. The scenario of children vaccinated against polio and other illnesses coming down with a “polio-like” illness is all too familiar. Look for example at what happened in India when widespread polio vaccinations were used to reportedly eradicate polio from India. More

A former Pennsylvania politician who says his family’s house was gripped by evil spirits is sharing new details about the supernatural ordeal they went through in their Pittsburgh home. Bob Cranmer claims his home was infested by a demonic force that terrorized his family for years before being successfully dispelled by a team of faith leaders and paranormal experts. A dark column that glided through the house. Mysterious shadows. A rancid stench. Clocks stopping. A mysterious blood-like substance coating the walls. Broken crucifixes. Cranmer’s children exhibiting signs of possible possession. More

Rouhani: Iran draws ‘red line’ at developing nuclear weapons

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani urged Iran’s military leaders on Saturday to let diplomacy prevail in dealing with potential foreign threats, in a clear reference to efforts to end the nuclear dispute and decades of hostile relations with the West. ”Iran is sincere in saying it is not out to attack anyone. Aggression is our red line. Weapons of mass destruction are our red line,” Rouhani said in a meeting with Iran’s top military echelon. Rouhani appealed to the army generals to construe their diction in a non-threatening manner so as not to provoke conflict. ”It is very important to formulate one’s sentences and speeches in a way that is not construed as threat, intention to strike a blow,” he said. More

Prime Minister of Ukraine warns, Military Action by Russia will be “ACT OF WAR”!

Diplomats scrambled Saturday to respond to the unanimous vote by Russia’s upper house of Parliament to approve sending military forces into Ukraine. The vote followed a request from President Vladimir Putin for approval to send troops into Crimea to normalize the political situation there. Putin cited the “extraordinary situation in Ukraine” in making his request, adding that the lives of Russian citizens and military personnel based in the southern Crimea region had been threatened. Late in the evening, Ukrainian acting Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said in a televised address in Kiev that he had been told by Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev that no decision had been made on whether Russian military forces would indeed enter his country. More

A fisherman, who suffered a seemingly minor scrape during a Sunday outing on Lake Conroe, has died from an infection of flesh-eating bacteria. Travis Lee Moore, a 74-year-old retired postal worker and former firefighter from the Southeast Texas town of Chester, succumbed only five days after a fishing trip with four of his brothers. “It was a scrape on the top of his hand, on his finger,” said his brother, Robert Moore of Woodville. The infection’s severity didn’t become apparent until two days after the trip, when his family thought Moore was suffering a heart attack. His brother, Robert, took him to a hospital in Huntsville where the problem was diagnosed. More

Gang of Knife-Wielding Men Kill 27 at China Train Station.

Knife-wielding assailants attacked people at a train station in southwestern China on Saturday in what authorities called a terrorist attack and police fatally shot five of the assailants, leaving 28 people dead and 113 injured, state media said. China’s official Xinhua News Agency did not identify who might have been responsible for the late-evening attack at the Kunming Railway Station in Yunnan province, but said authorities considered it to be “an organized, premeditated violent terrorist attack.” More

PUTIN CALLS BLUFF: REQUESTS MILITARY FORCE

As Russian armed forces effectively seized control of Ukraine’s Crimean peninsula on Saturday, the Russian Parliament granted President Vladimir V. Putin the authority he sought to use military force in response to the deepening instability in Ukraine. The authorization cited a threat to the lives of Russian citizens and soldiers stationed in Crimea and other parts of Ukraine, and provided a blunt answer to President Obama, who on Friday pointedly warned Russia to respect Ukraine’s territorial sovereignty. Even before Mr. Putin’s statement in Moscow, scores of heavily armed soldiers had tightened their grip on the Crimean capital, Simferopol, surrounding government buildings, shuttering the airport, and blocking streets, where they deployed early Friday. More

WAR DRUMS: Russian parliament demands recall of ambassador to USA.

Russia’s upper house of parliament will ask President Vladimir Putin to recall Moscow’s ambassador from the United States, the chamber’s speaker said on Saturday. Valentina Matviyenko, the head of the Federation Council, asked the Council’s Committee on Foreign Affairs to draw up a proposal setting out the demands to Putin. Reuters

WAR DRUMS: Ukraine says it will not bow to Russian ‘provocations’ in Crimea

Ukraine’s prime minister said on Saturday his country would not be drawn into a military conflict by Russian “provocations” in the Crimea region and appealed to Moscow to halt military movements there. “It is unacceptable when armored Russian military vehicles are out in the center of Ukrainian towns,” Arseny Yatseniuk said before a government meeting in the Ukrainian capital, Kiev. Russia, which has a naval base in Crimea, says any movements by its military in Crimea are in line with agreements with Ukraine. INFO WARS

 

DISTRESS OF NATIONS: UN says 703 people killed in Iraq violence in February

APTOPIX Mideast Iraq ViolenceThe United Nations says a total of 703 people were killed in Iraq in February, as the country faces its worst violence in years. The UN mission to Iraq issued the figure on Saturday, which is close to that of January’s death toll of 733. The figure excluded deaths from the ongoing fighting between the Iraqi forces and al-Qaeda-linked militants in the western Anbar Province, neighboring Syria. Some 564 civilians and 139 members of security forces were killed in the violence in the country, while 1,381 people, including 1,179 civilians, were injured. Baghdad was the worst affected region with 239 deaths, followed by central Salahuddin Province with 121 killed and northern Nineveh Province with 94 killed. UN mission chief, Nickolay Mladenov, asked Iraqis to come together to put an end to the violence. More

Planned Parenthood Action Fund President Cecile Richards said the lives of her three children began when she delivered them, in a Thursday interview on Fusion’s “America with Jorge Ramos.” Richards at first dodged the question several times, arguing that the question of when life begins is unrelated to the issue of abortion. ”When does life start? When does a human being become a human being?” Ramos asked. The question “will be debated through the centuries,” Richards said, and people hold different views on when life begins. ”But for you, when is that point?” Ramos pressed. More

 

After forest fires and drought, now rains torment Southern California

Mario Vazquez grabbed his dog and got out of the way, as a stream of water and mud came gushing on to his streets Friday. Since California has been in the middle of its worst drought in 100 years, it would seem that the sight of rain would be good news. But in Glendora and other towns in Los Angeles County, it wasn’t. The rain has been much needed, but this deluge — coming down at more than an inch an hour at times — has landed on bone-dry hills scorched by recent wildfires in and around Los Angeles. With little vegetation left to stop them, walls of water have gushed into valleys below. They have spewed mud and debris into quiet residential streets, turning them into thick, brown creeks. More

 

Lawmakers back Obama’s warning to Russia on ‘costs’ for Ukraine intervention

Key lawmakers backed President Obama’s warning to Russia Friday that “there will be costs” for any military intervention in Ukraine, and offered support for sanctions and other measures aimed at deterring Russia from escalating tensions in the region. Obama, speaking to reporters at the White House, said that the U.S. government is “deeply concerned” by reports of Russian “military movements” inside Ukraine, warning that any violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty would be “deeply destabilizing.” ”There will be costs for any military intervention in Ukraine,” he said, without specifying what those costs might be.  A bipartisan group of 12 members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee expressed support for U.S. assistance in Ukraine and raised concerns over the Russian government’s “provocative and dangerous tactics” in response to the upheaval in Ukraine. More

Iran advancing nuke program despite pact with West.

Iran is moving ahead with a nuclear program that U.S. officials said would be frozen, and it is now clear the USA and other world powers are willing to accept an Iranian enrichment program that Iran refuses to abandon, say analysts. Iran has continued research and development on new, far more efficient machines for producing uranium fuel that could power reactors or bombs, and its stockpile of low enriched uranium has actually grown, according to a report by Institute for Science and International Security. The Iranian regime has also trumpeted recent tests of new ballistic missiles that could be used to deliver a future warhead while its pariah economy has begun a modest recovery. Analysts watching the movements say the U.S. easing of economic sanctions against Iran to induce it to make compromises on a long-term nuclear agreement may not be having the desired effect. More

WAR DRUMS: Ukraine Says Russia Has Sent In 6,000 Troops

Russia has been accused of sending 6,000 troops into the Ukraine despite calls by Britain and the US for Moscow to back off. Tensions are rising amid reports that Russian and Ukranian troops are trying to gain control of key sites in the south-eastern region of Crimea. The region has a prime minister loyal to Moscow but the government in Kiev has vowed to maintain the country’s territorial integrity.  Reports suggest that Russian troops are trying to occupy an anti-aircraft missile base and have taken control of airports in the peninsular. Ukraine’s border guard service said about 300 armed men were attempting to seize its main headquarters in the port city of Sevastopol. Russian helicopter gunships have also been seen in Ukrainian airspace. But there were claims by Russia that gunmen from Kiev had been sent overnight to seize the offices of Crimea’s interior ministry. There was grainy footage of an unidentified armed group breaking into a building, with smoke rising and reports that people had been “wounded”.More 

Russia Extends Reach in Crimea with Calls for Troops in Ukrainian Region

Russia extended its reach in Crimea on Saturday as officials in the restive Ukrainian region called on Russian troops to help provide security and as Crimea’s newly appointed prime minister, who is pro-Russian, said he was taking command of the peninsula’s police and army. Russia’s State Duma, the lower house of parliament, Saturday issued an appeal to President Vladimir Putin to “use all available means to defend the population of Crimea from disorder and violence,” Duma Speaker Sergei Naryshkin said on Russian state TV. Sergei Aksyonov, who was appointed head of Crimea after armed men took over the regional parliament this week, said troops from Russia’s Black Sea Fleet are guarding vital facilities in the region and helping with patrols to ensure public order. More

The National Religious Broadcasters (NRB) and Paramount Pictures jointly announced Thursday the decision to add an explanatory message to future marketing materials for the upcoming film Noah from acclaimed filmmaker Darren Aronofsky. The move follows an appeal by Jerry A. Johnson, president and CEO of NRB, to help audiences better understand that the feature film is a dramatization of the major scriptural themes and not a line-by-line retelling of the Bible story. Johnson’s request to Paramount Pictures to consider adding this clarification to Noah’s marketing materials ahead of release was an idea fully embraced by the studio and follows a precedent established by other films based on biblical stories. NRB’s reaching out to Paramount was prompted by a special public event earlier this week at the NRB 2014 International Christian Media Convention in Nashville, Tenn., where Johnson led an engaging and insightful panel discussion with John Snowden, a biblical consultant for Noah, along with filmmaker, media consultant and writer Phil Cooke, who is also a member of the NRB board of directors. More

Video Shows Eerie Electrical Anomaly Happening in Norwegian Mountains

If you thought the worst thing that could happen when power lines went down was your cable or Internet going out, then watch this video. In Norway earlier this year, a snowstorm caused damage in an area that is popular with people who like to go sledding. A man by the name of Steinar Midtskogen was there and captured footage of a downed power line. The scene created a visual straight out of a sci-fi movie. ”An ordinary ski with child,” translates one of the Norwegian subtitles. “Forest’s tranquility.” Video is shown of a family pulling a sled and skiing. After a photo of the snow-covered trees is shown, more text appears. ”Suddenly a sound in the forest,” it reads. “Wind, heavy snow, and trees go bad with power lines.” That could be quite the understatement if that translation reads true. The downed power line perhaps hits a tree and creates a crazy jet of fire lightning. According to the person who uploaded the video, it lasted for about five minutes. More

WAR DRUMS: Russian troops have launched ‘armed invasion’ of Crimea

Russian troops moved into Crimea Friday, U.S. officials told Fox News, prompting Ukraine to accuse Russia of an “armed invasion.” At the White House, President Obama said the U.S. government is “deeply concerned” by reports of Russian “military movements” and warned any violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty would be “deeply destabilizing.” ”There will be costs” for any military intervention, he said, without specifying what those costs might be. U.S. officials told Fox News they see “evidence of air and maritime movement into and out of Crimea by Russian forces” although the Pentagon declined to officially “characterize” the movement. Agence France Press quoted a top Ukranian official as saying Russian aircraft carrying nearly 2,000 suspected troops have landed at a military air base near the regional capital of the restive Crimean peninsula. More

Police Pushing Access to Security Cameras Inside Public Schools

It’s not enough the Austin Police Department has surveillance cameras mounted in nearly every corner of the city. Police are now pushing to gain access to security cameras inside Austin Independent School District public schools. The move comes as the department announces a sprawling surveillance roll-out that hopes to add a myriad of cameras to city streets. Predictably, APD purports its efforts will make Austin schools safer. The department already has 39 HALO (High Activity Location Observation) cameras installed throughout Austin, which surreptitiously monitor in real time Austin residents’ mundane routines. But that’s not enough. More

Michigan Township To Put Cameras ‘In Every Neighborhood’

After placing multiple cameras throughout the city’s West Willow neighborhood several years ago, township officials claim the programs vast success, which is reportedly centered around one single case, warrants an expansive rollout to every last neighborhood. When attempting to find public support for the program, WDIV used quick editing to create the desired answer from a surveillance weary resident. “When they put the security cameras up I kind of thought crime would decrease and it kind of has in a way…” Tony Slaughter hesitantly said before being cut off mid-sentence. Mike Radzik, the director of the Office of Community Standards, justified the program by claiming that the cameras were no different than police officers constantly standing in the neighborhood. “We are recording images that a police officer would see if he or she were standing in the same place,” Radzik said. “They are only in public places.” Not only has the township seemingly decided to go forward with the program without public input, residents will be required to pay a fee for the township’s venture. More

EGYPT THREATENED BY MASS TERRORIST INVASION

In recent weeks, thousands of foreign jihadists have been attempting to infiltrate Egypt, stoking fears of a coming destabilization campaign akin to the insurgency in Syria, according to informed Middle Eastern security officials. The officials warned of a troubling development taking place among the al-Qaida-linked organizations already inside Egypt. They said there is information the militant groups are forming a de fact chain of command, with alarming coordination between the various jihadist factions embedded around the country. The terrorist infrastructure is being set up beyond the Islamist stronghold of the Sinai Peninsula. The officials said al-Qaida-linked groups in Egypt have been forming divisions replete with leadership and assignments to specific territories, including in the Sinai, Suez regions, outside Cairo and along the Delta. More

 

2014 finds abortion clinic numbers still plunging

The recent closure of a California abortion clinic was the fifth to shut down this year, continuing a decline in which nearly three of every four abortion-providing locations has closed since 1991, according to Operation Rescue.  The group, which itself bought one abortion clinic to put it out of business, has been monitoring the decline of America’s abortion businesses for years. In a year-end report for 2013, it said 87 businesses discontinued offering surgical abortions, including 81 that were permanently shuttered, during the year. In the report,”Death Throws of the Death Industry,” Operation Rescue’s Cheryl Sullenger explained the closures left the number of surgical abortion clinics in the U.S. at that time at 582, a drop of 12 percent in just 2013 along and a 73 percent plunge from the high in 1991 of 2,176. More

At a time of escalated tensions with the West over Ukraine, Russia says it is negotiating with eight governments around the world for access to military facilities, to enable it to extend its long-range naval and strategic bomber capabilities. Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said Wednesday the military was engaged in talks with Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragua, Algeria, Cyprus, the Seychelles, Vietnam and Singapore.  “We need bases for refueling near the equator, and in other places,” ITAR-Tass quoted him as saying.  Russia is not looking to establish bases in those locations, but to reach agreement to use facilities there when required. More

 

OBAMA WARNS RUSSIA

U.S. officials said Friday that President Barack Obama may scrap plans to attend an international summit in Russia this summer and could also halt discussions on deepening trade ties with Moscow, raising specific possible consequences if Russia should intervene in Ukraine. Obama himself bluntly warned of unspecified “costs” for Russia.  ”Any violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity would be deeply destabilizing,” Obama declared. Such action by Russia would represent a “profound interference” in matters that must be decided by the Ukrainian people, he said. While the president spoke only of “reports” of military movements inside Ukraine, the officials said the U.S does believe that Russia is intervening. More

Tenn. State University Requires Students to Wear Trackable IDs

Beginning Saturday, March 1, students and staff at Tennessee State University will be required to present identification badges at any time that can also track their movements in and out of buildings, according to a local-news report.  After a spate of break-ins and vandalism, officials at the university instituted the new ID requirement as a way to ensure safety on campus, a TSU release said. “Our primary concern is always to provide a safe and healthy environment for all of our students, employees and visitors,” said Dr. Curtis Johnson, associate vice president for administration, who is in charge of Emergency Management. “Safety on our campus is priority number one, and with the new policy we want to ensure that our students, faculty, and staff are safe at all times.” More

 

DAYS OF LOT- Federal Judge Strikes Down Texas Same-Sex ‘Marriage’ Ban

SAN ANTONIO, Texas – A federal judge nominated by then-President Bill Clinton has struck down a constitutional amendment in Texas that defined marriage as being between a man and a woman. On Wednesday, U.S. District Judge Orlando Garcia issued his decision, stating that the current law “demeans the dignity” of homosexuals “for no legitimate reason.” He placed a stay on his ruling pending appeal. “These Texas laws deny Plaintiffs access to the institution of marriage and its numerous rights, privileges and responsibilities,” he wrote, “for the sole reason that Plaintiffs wish to be married to a person of the same sex.” “Without a rational relation to a legitimate governmental purpose, state-imposed inequality can find no refuge in our United States Constitution,” Garcia asserted. More
