US and Philippines start naval drills near China-claimed waters


The United States and the Philippines kicked off joint naval exercises Thursday in the South China Sea near waters claimed by Beijing, amid tense territorial rows between China and its neighbours. Filipino military officials said the week-long maneuvers, involving three US warships and more than a thousand servicemen, would address Manila’s “capability gaps” as well as testing its newest military vessels. The Philippines is engaged in a bitter territorial dispute with China over parts of the South China Sea, which Beijing claims almost in its entirety. More

WHO urges ‘drastic action’ on Ebola, calls 11-nation meeting


The World Health Organization on Thursday called for “drastic action” to fight the deadliest Ebola outbreak on record, as it announced an 11-nation meeting to address the growing crisis. As of Sunday, 635 cases of haemorrhagic fever (most confirmed to be Ebola), including 399 deaths, have been reported across Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, making the outbreak the largest ever “in terms of the number of cases and deaths as well as geographical spread,” WHO said. ”Drastic action is needed,” the UN agency stressed in a statement, warning of the danger that the virus could jump to other countries. More

DAYS OF LOT – American Apparel’s Sex Obsession Goes Beyond the Ads


“American Apparel’s use of pornographic images of young girls in ads has done more to promote a culture of sexual exploitation than sell products,” said Morality in Media’s Executive Director Dawn Hawkins, noting that the company is losing millions of dollars annually. In light of the recent removal of American Apparel CEO Dov Charney for sexual harassment and other misconduct, we urge the company to re-examine its advertising techniques and brand identity. Some of the company’s ads depict young girls topless, with pubic hair showing, or with legs spread. “Clearly, the company has operated with a ‘girls are sex objects’ attitude not only in their brand identity, but also in the office where, according to news reports, the CEO is alleged to have sexually harassed female employees,” Hawkins said. More

In Pro-Life Victory, US Supreme Court Strikes Down Abortion Buffer Law


The U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday stuck down a Massachusetts law that offers a buffer zone around abortion clinics. The 2007 law violates freedom of speech of pro-life protesters under the U.S. Constitution’s First Amendment, the High Court decided on a 9-0 vote, by forcing them off the sidewalk and prohibiting them from speaking to people who are entering the abortion mills. The Massachusetts law was enacted in part because of safety concerns highlighted by violent acts committed against abortion providers in the past. In 1994, two abortion clinic workers were killed outside a clinic in Brookline, Mass. ”Americans have the freedom to talk to whomever they please on public sidewalks,” says Alliance Defending Freedom allied attorney Mark Rienzi, professor of constitutional law at Catholic University of America’s Columbus School of Law and lead counsel in McCullen v. Coakley. More

Blood Moons, the Shemitah and Prophetic Implications We Can’t Ignore


Israel is appropriating $29 million to help farmers observe a critical agricultural commandment from the Mosaic law, according to WND. That commandment instructs the Israelites to give the land a rest from all agricultural activity once every seven years. In the Torah, the Sabbath concept isn’t limited to the seventh day of the week; it also applies to every seventh year—also known as the Shemitah year. The $29 million in funding is headed to Israel’s Religious Affairs Ministry, which will spend the money encouraging and enabling Jewish farmers who wish to follow the command. Though farming regulations may seem insignificant to Western eyes, it was in part Israel’s original failure to observe the resting years that resulted in the 70-year exile (2 Chronicles 36:20-23)—a seven-decade “Sabbath rest” for the land. More

ABANDONED WAL-MART CONSIDERED AS FEDS EXPLORE IMMIGRANT SHELTER OPTIONS


Scrambling to secure accommodations for the overwhelming surge of Central American minors crossing into the U.S. illegally, the federal government is looking at several sites in New York as potential shelters, including a rundown former Walmart building. Though the location has been vacant for about seven years, and is in many respects what some might call a “fixer-upper,” the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and General Services Administration are looking at an old Walmart store in Sweden, New York, “to determine whether it may be used as a facility for temporarily housing children who have come into the United States from other countries without an adult guardian.” The proposal is not without opposition, however. The town’s supervisor, a New York congressman and residents all say it’s a terrible idea. More

‘VIRTUALLY CRIME FREE’ COUNTY IN FLORIDA GETS MRAP ARMORED VEHICLE


Residents of a virtually crime free county in Florida are expressing outrage over a decision by the Walton County Sheriff’s Office to purchase an MRAP armored vehicle normally used to hunt insurgents in Iraq and Afghanistan. “The Walton County Sheriff’s Office got the mine-resistant, ambush-protected (MRAP) vehicle for the cost of transporting it. The vehicle, for which the department paid $2,500, was a surplus military vehicle that was demilitarized for law enforcement use,” reports NWF Daily News. Walton County Sheriff’s Officer Mike Adkinson denied that the purchase of the vehicle was an attempt to militarize the police department, adding that he wouldn’t let public opinion get in the way of the “safety” of his colleagues. “This is not the federal government intruding on your civil liberties,” wrote Adkinson in a Facebook post. “Would you really want them sent into harm’s way without the best protection available, simply because the military originally purchased this vehicle?”More

Liberman to Kerry: Forget Israeli-Palestinian accord, focus instead on regional agreement


Give up trying to broker an Israeli-Palestinian accord, and focus instead on a comprehensive regional agreement, Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman told US Secretary of State John Kerry during a meeting Thursday in Paris. Liberman, meeting Kerry for the first time since the breakdown in March of the US-backed Israeli-Palestinian negotiations, said Israel’s ongoing conflict is not only with the Palestinians, but the entire Arab world — of which the Palestinians are a part. More

 

LA to Open First Marijuana Farmers Market.


Discerning medical marijuana users will have a new way to get the weed they need over Independence Day weekend. The world’s first medical marijuana farmers market is set to take place in L.A. from July 4-6, allowing patients to purchase cannabis directly from growers. The market hopes to create a better relationship between growers and patients, giving them a new way to safely access marijuana from trustworthy suppliers. “This is an opportunity that unfortunately is not seen as much as we would like,” California Heritage Market executive administrator Paizley Bradbury said of the chance for patients and growers to interact. “We’re hoping that the California Heritage Market can bridge this gap and provide a new and affordable experience for those who need safe access they can trust.”  More

Vet May Lose Home For Displaying American Flag In Flower Pot.


A veteran could lose his home because of a small American flag he has placed in a flower pot in front of his home. Larry Murphree explained that his homeowners’ association in the Sweetwater community wants him to remove the flag because it violates home display rules. Furthermore, he is facing $8,000 in fines if he doesn’t take it out of his flower pot. “I want it to go away. It’s such a minor little thing and they keep coming after me,” Murphree told WAWS. “They just sent me a letter that says I owe them around $8,000 and they put a foreclosure lien on my house.” Murphree has 30 days to pay the fines and remove the flag or the homeowners’ association will move forward with the foreclosure.More

Federal Judge: Forced Removal of Christian Materials from Classroom Was Legal


A New York federal district judge ruled on Tuesday that a public school was justified in forcing a Christian science teacher to remove personal Bible-themed materials from her classroom. As previously reported, Joelle Silver works as a high school teacher for the Cheektowaga Central School District near Buffalo. Silver, a Christian, displayed several inspirational posters and artworks in her classroom, including a number of Bible verse references and Christian materials. One poster in Silver’s classroom included a quote from former President Ronald Reagan: “Without God there is no virtue because there is no prompting of the conscience,” the quote said. “… Without God there is a coarsening of the society; without God democracy will not and cannot long endure … If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a Nation gone under.” More

Giant rodents that are immune to poison are spreading at ‘rapid speeds’


Deep within our city sewers, a new breed of genetically mutated ‘super rats’, immune to poison, are spreading at alarming speeds. Scientists have now begun charting their rapid invasion into new communities by monitoring their progress in 17 counties in the UK. Genetic testing by Huddersfield University has revealed that the rodents have developed a mutation that allows them to survive conventional poisons. In counties such as Berkshire, Suffolk, Surrey, Wiltshire, Hampshire and Kent, all the rats tested were found to have immunity to poison. Places such as Shropshire and South Gloucestershire had slightly less resilient rats with immunity levels at 33 per cent, and 50 per cent respectively. Around 30 per cent of rats in Kingston are immune to poison, in Sheffield it is 40 per cent, while 75 per cent of rats in Southampton are immune. More

Fukushima radiation concerns coastal communities


Talk in the Oregon coast town of Bandon often turns to the approaching plume of sea-borne radiation from Japan’s crippled Fukushima nuclear power plant. ”We’ve been worried about it and worried about it,” said Zac Adams, owner of Bandon Designs construction company. “We’re really concerned about it affecting the fisheries, the wildlife, the tourism, and most importantly our health.” In March 2011, a 9.0 magnitude earthquake hit off the coast of Japan, triggering a tsunami and knocking out power to cooling pumps at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant complex, causing meltdowns at three reactors. Massive amounts of contaminated water were released to the sea and continue to build up at the plant. More

Tokyo region battered by storms and severe Hail


Tokyo and surrounding regions were hit with some extreme weather on June 24, as heavy rain, lightning storms and severe hail hit the area. The Japan Meteorological Agency has said that the wild weather is being stirred up by extreme temperature differences between warm ground-level air and a cold air mass — measured at minus 12 degrees Celsius and below — sitting about 5,500 meters above the national capital region. According to local residents in the Tokyo metropolitan cities of Mitaka and Chofu, several dozen centimeters of 10-yen-coin-sized hailstones fell on the area in the space of about an hour starting from around 3 p.m. Locals also said that the mix of heavy rain and hail formed whirlpools of ice and water in some places. More

 

Paralyzed man moves arm with his thoughts using microchip in his brain


An American man who was paralyzed in a swimming accident has become the first patient to move his hand using the power of thought after doctors inserted a microchip into his brain. Ian Burkhart, 23, was able to open and close his fist and even pick up a spoon during the first test of the chip, giving hope to millions of accident victims and stroke sufferers. Onlookers described the moment as like watching “science fiction come true”. The “Neurobridge” technology, whereby a microchip reads patients’ thoughts to replace signals no longer transmitted by their bodies, was created by doctors at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center and engineers from a non-profit research centre called Battelle. More

Privacy fears mount as Pentagon’s ‘all seeing’ surveillance blimps get go-ahead


Controversial surveillance blimps that can spot a person 340 miles away have been unveiled by military firm Raytheon. It boasts the project can offer ’360 degree 24/7 surveillance for 30 days at a time’ – and revealed the US Army has already bought two. One is being trialled over Maryland, with the other being kept in ‘strategic reserve’. ‘By putting JLENS in strategic reserve, the Army is giving combatant commanders around the globe the ability to pick up the phone and, in short order, receive this incredible air defense capability in their area of responsibility, said Raytheon’s Dave Gulla, vice president of Integrated Defense Systems’ Global Integrated Sensors business area. The system is called JLENS — or Joint Land Attack Cruise Missile Defense Elevated Netted Sensor System — which is composed of an integrated radar system on two tethered, 80-yard blimps. More

NATO Warns Russia Over Ukraine as Obama Mulls Delaying Sanctions


The head of NATO said Wednesday he saw no sign that Russia was respecting its international commitments over Ukraine as Britain warned Moscow it could face tougher European Union sanctions unless it acted to stop fighting in eastern Ukraine. Meanwhile, sanctions aimed at key economic sectors in Russia because of its threatening moves in Ukraine might be delayed because of positive signals from President Vladimir Putin, according to Obama administration officials.More

 

 

SWINE FLU CONFIRMED AT SHELTER FOR UNACCOMPANIED MINORS


An unaccompanied minor from Central America who entered the U.S. illegally has been confirmed as having the Swine Flu, also known as the H1N1 flu. A spokesperson from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services confirmed that the sick child is at the Lackland Air Force base in San Antonio, according to KRGV. 2,000 H1N1 vaccinations are being brought to the air base, where more than 1,000 illegal immigrant minors are currently staying.  Congressman Louie Gohmert told Breitbart Texas that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services–the agency currently caring for many of the unaccompanied minors–is not doing an adequate job of screening and treating diseases.  ”Having spent the weekend on our border, I can tell you that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is not taking charge of the undocumented children in any kind of reasonable time frame as they are absolutely required to do,” Gohmert said. “It is becoming more and more apparent that the Obama administration’s reckless disregard for enforcing this nation’s laws at the border has become a reckless disregard for human health and life. Even when they spend a hundred times more than necessary, they can’t even build a website.” More

 

U.N. GUN CONFISCATION PROGRAM SERVES AS MODEL FOR GUN BANS IN AMERICA


A gun confiscation program developed by the United Nations is the ultimate goal of anti-gun politicians in America. As reported earlier by Paul Joseph Watson, the U.N. is hiring a “Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration Officer” who is responsible for the “collection, documentation, control and disposal of small arms, ammunition, explosives and light and heavy weapons from combatants and often from the civilian population.” Although the U.N.’s Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration (DDR) program is currently only active in war-torn regions of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Haiti and the Ivory Coast, numerous U.N.-affiliated politicians are in fact working towards similar gun confiscation programs in America and have even been successful at doing so in certain areas. During his tenure as mayor in New York City, Michael Bloomberg all but eradicated private gun ownership inside city limits, and gun owners even received notices in the mail last November telling them to surrender their firearms to the police. More

Federal Court Rules That Gay Couples Have Constitutional Right To Marry


DAYS OF LOT – A federal appeals court ruled for the first time Wednesday that gay couples have a constitutional right to marry, extending the movement’s legal winning streak and bringing the issue a big step closer to the U.S. Supreme Court. The three-judge panel in Denver ruled 2-1 that states cannot deprive people of the fundamental right to marry simply because they choose a partner of the same sex. The court dismissed as “wholly illogical” the notion that allowing gays to wed could somehow undermine traditional marriage. The decision by the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals panel upheld a lower-court ruling that struck down Utah’s gay marriage ban. It becomes law in the six states covered by the 10th Circuit: Colorado, Kansas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Utah and Wyoming. But the panel immediately put the ruling on hold pending an appeal. More

Bomb Blasts Hit Egypt Subway.


At least five people suffered minor injuries early Wednesday when four bombs exploded at three metro stations in Cairo during the crowded morning rush hour, state media reported, breaking a period of relative calm that preceded the election of Egypt’s new president. According to Egypt’s flagship state newspaper, Al Ahram, the homemade explosives detonated at subway stations in central and northern Cairo within the same hour as commuters began heading to work. Security officials quoted by the newspaper said the explosions targeted three stations in central and northern Cairo along two separate metro lines. More

Syrian warplanes launch raids into Iraq, Iran Sends in Drones


Syrian warplanes bombed Sunni militants’ positions inside Iraq, military officials confirmed Wednesday, deepening the concerns that the extremist insurgency that spans the two neighboring countries could morph into an even wider regional conflict. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry warned against the threat and said other nations should stay out. Meanwhile, a new insurgent artillery offensive against Christian villages in the north of Iraq sent thousands of Christians fleeing from their homes, seeking sanctuary in Kurdish-controlled territory, Associated Press reporters who witnessed the scene said. The United States government and a senior Iraqi military official confirmed that Syrian warplanes bombed militants’ positions Tuesday in and near the border crossing in the town of Qaim. Iraq’s other neighbors — Jordan, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and Turkey — were all bolstering flights just inside their airspace to monitor the situation, said the Iraqi official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media. More

 


Iran Secretly Sending Drones and Supplies Into Iraq- 
Iran is directing surveillance drones over Iraq from an airfield in Baghdad and is secretly supplying Iraq with tons of military equipment, supplies and other assistance, American officials said. Tehran has also deployed an intelligence unit there to intercept communications, the officials said. The secret Iranian programs are part of a broader effort by Tehran to gather intelligence and help Prime Minister Nuri Kamal al-Maliki’s government in its struggle against Sunni militants with the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. Gen. Qassim Suleimani, the head of Iran’s paramilitary Quds Force, has visited Iraq at least twice to help Iraqi military advisers plot strategy. And Iran has deployed about a dozen other Quds Force officers to advise Iraqi commanders, and help mobilize more than 2,000 Shiite militiamen from southern Iraq, American officials said. More
 
 

Bad to worse: US economy shrank more than expected in Q1


The U.S. economy contracted at a much steeper pace than previously estimated in the first quarter, but there are indications that growth has sincerebounded strongly. The Commerce Department said on Wednesday gross domestic product fell at a 2.9 percent annual rate, the economy’s worst performance in five years, instead of the 1.0 percent pace it had reported last month. While the economy’s woes have been largely blamed on an unusually cold winter, the magnitude of the revisions suggest other factors at play beyond the weather. Growth has now been revised down by a total of 3.0 percentage points since the government’s first estimate was published in April, which hadthe economy expanding at a 0.1 percent rate. More
