us israel flags

by Donn Marten

Extremist Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin “Bibi” Netanyahu enjoys an overwhelmingly accommodating media in the United States along with a contemptible Congress packed with corrupt and cowardly weasels, lickspittles and nut case religious zealots whose dedication to a foreign country stabs their actual constituents in the back. The fealty that Netanyahu receives from this lamentable “co-equal” branch of government was evident when he received 29 standing ovations during an address to the U.S. Congress in 2011. He also is able to play the corrupt state-corporate media like a Stradivarius in order to receive an unprecedented forum on U.S. national television to push his lies and propaganda to sell the product that is the slaughter of women and children in Gaza.

In the early days of Operation Protective Edge – one of those deceptive military style names that sell so well to star-spangled schmucks in the Homeland – Bibi was a fixture on those Sunday morning “news” shows that are nothing more than propaganda organs of the warfare state. His fascistic genocidal policies are routinely given cover by “America’s most trusted name in news” and mealy-mouthed celebrity pundit Wolf Blitzer, a former AIPAC lobbyist whose objectivity is non-existent when it comes to defending extremist Israeli actions. His ridiculous feature on exploring the “terror tunnels of Hamas” last month was as ludicrous and phony as when Geraldo Rivera opened Al Capone’s vault.

Much of the power of “King Bibi” in the domestic U.S. comes courtesy of foreign agents such as AIPAC and the larger Israel Lobby but also a well-financed, integrated network of American “Christian Zionist” churches and organizations that assist in melding Israeli aggression and the ongoing quest for Lebensraum with end times eschatology. This is the bastardized biblical reinterpreting in which Israel will play a major role of the return of Jesus Christ to the planet Earth as espoused in the mega-selling Left Behind series of apocalyptic pulp novels.

Foremost among the Christian Zionist organizations is CUFI or Christians United for Israel led by Texas radical cleric John Hagee. There is no more important bastion of the chicken-fried brand of cracker “Christianity” to the mustering of the flock to carry the torch for Netanyahu’s war crimes in America. The annual CUFI summit was just held last month in Washington and attracted the exalted high priests of Israeli supremacy and the genocide necessary to deliver to Bibi everything that God once promised and then some. The heavy hitters being the Grand Poobah of neocon propaganda William Kristol, the fiendish Iran-Contra criminal Elliott Abrams, former CIA Director James “World War IV” Woolsey and Israeli Ambassador to the U.S. Ron Dermer who has been seriously referred to as “Bibi’s brain”. Additional guests of dishonor at this sordid soiree were the typical extremist Republicans, in particular the increasingly unstable Senator Lindsey Graham, batshit crazy Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann, Senator Jim Inhofe who is squealing like a stuck pig about ISIS destroying an American city and the wettest of wet dreams of Christian fascists who have long been awaiting the arrival of their führer: Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, a bizarre land of chicken-fried motherfuckery…

(l. Wannabe Jew Stephen Harper. Illuminati Jews and Freemasons are the
ruling caste in the New World Order)


Thanks to Prime Minister Stephen Harper,
Canada will be a Russian
target in any future nuclear war.
My old age will be taken care of
.
by Henry Makow Ph.D. When Vladimir Putin warned Friday that Russia is a major nuclear power, saying “don’t mess with us,” I realized I could put aside my worries about old age. I wasn’t going to have one.

I’ll be 65 in a couple of months. I wasn’t looking forward to old age. Fortunately, my Prime Minister, Stephen Harper, a Zionist puppet, has involved Canada in the Ukraine civil war by taking many belligerent steps against Russia.

Harper has ensured that when nuclear missiles fly, Canada will not be overlooked. My home town, Winnipeg, a NORAD center, will be blown off the map. Thank you Stephen Harper. You’ll certainly have my vote.

Illuminati bankers and their Zionist go-fers like Harper are behind the problems in Ukraine. Putin’s objection to “unipolar” world power is an obstacle to their “New World Order.” They start most wars and are never denied.

War is the solution to the demographic crisis facing the West. Baby boomers are aging and “a shrinking pool of young people must finance their pensions.” Almost a third of Americans have not saved a dime for retirement. There’s the strain on the healthcare system. I certainly wasn’t looking forward to witnessing my body break down and die.

SPREADING THE GLORY

I can’t give Stephen Harper all the credit for this imaginative solution. I also credit the so-called “opposition leaders” Thomas Mulcair and Justin Trudeau for supporting Harper’s Ukraine policy.

I also thank the mass media for beating the war drums.
The media has not mentioned the investigation into the July 17 shoot-down of MH-17, killing 298 people. After pinning the blame squarely on Putin, and demanding war, it would be very embarrassing to admit that Ukraine’s Zionist leaders did the nasty deed. This would certainly impede the march to war, and again subject me to the perils of old age.
(I wrote July 19 that this atrocity was a false flag: “Just as we never learned what really happened to MH-370, I predict we will never have closure on MH-17 because the Illuminati and their agents never own up to their heinous crimes.”)

I also want to thank the mass media for suppressing the

following statement by Dutch intellectuals: “Mr. Putin. Please accept our apologies on behalf of a great many people here in the Netherlands for our Government and our Media. The facts concerning MH17 are twisted to defame you and your country. We are powerless onlookers, as we witness how the Western Nations, led by the United States, accuse Russia of crimes they commit themselves more than anybody else. We reject the double standards that are used for Russia and the West. In our societies, sufficient evidence is required for a conviction. The way you and your Nation are convicted for ‘crimes’ without evidence, is ruthless and despicable.”This kind of irresponsible peace-mongering and reprehensible honesty is hazardous to the war process.

Finally, I have been selfishly preoccupied with the problems facing seniors. What about the young who have their whole life ahead of them?

All I can say is, follow my example. Try to see your premature demise in a positive light.

For example, have you seen how much houses cost?

Thanks to our enlightened leaders and the mass media, there’s a chance you won’t ever face this housing market.

by Arjun Sethi

The US government’s web of surveillance is vast and interconnected. Now we know just how opaque, inefficient and discriminatory it can be.

As we were reminded again just this week, you can be pulled into the National Security Agency’s database quietly and quickly, and the consequences can be long and enduring. Through ICREACH, a Google-style search engine created for the intelligence community, the NSA provides data on private communications to 23 government agencies. More than 1,000 analysts had access to that information.

This kind of data sharing, however, isn’t limited to the latest from Edward Snowden’s NSA files. It was confirmed earlier this month that the FBI shares its master watchlist, the Terrorist Screening Database, with at least 22 foreign governments, countless federal agencies, state and local law enforcement, plus private contractors.

The watchlist tracks “known” and “suspected” terrorists and includes both foreigners and Americans. It’s also based on loose standards and secret evidence, which ensnares innocent people. Indeed, the standards are so low that the US government’s guidelines specifically allow for a single, uncorroborated source of information – including a Facebook or Twitter post – to serve as the basis for placing you on its master watchlist…

protest emergency kit

by Stefan Verstappen

(Stefan H. Verstappen is a Canadian writer, adventurer, and martial artist. He has worked as a wilderness survival instructor for Outward Bound programs, a street youth councilor, a First Aid and CPR instructor for St John Ambulance, and a martial arts instructor. Since first backpacking through Europe alone at age sixteen he has also traveled extensively and spent four years living in the Orient.

If you’re planning on participating in a peaceful demonstration or protest keep one thing in mind, at any time it could turn into a bloody riot.

In the past it has been a common practice for governments to send agent provocateurs to mingle among the demonstrators until a given time or signal, and then to begin instigating violence as both a way to demonize the peaceful protesters in the media, and as an excuse to send in the riot troops to bust heads. As demonstrations around the world can attest to, this tactic has not gone out of fashion.

So what should you do if suddenly rubber bullets, tear gas canisters, and flash bang grenades are whizzing past you and a hundred Mad Max extras waiving clubs start goose-stepping in your direction?

The following will provide you some tips and advice to keep you as safe as possible should you suddenly find yourself in a war-zone.

Clothing

When the storm troopers make their appearance at your protest march, you’ll notice they came dressed to kill. They typically wear helmets, face shields, gas masks, chest protectors, elbow pads, knee and shin pads, and combat boots. In addition, they will carry shields, batons, Tasers, radios, medical kits, shotguns and pistols. Meanwhile, you are standing there in a t-shirt and flip flops. The first tip is to come dressed for the occasion.

What to Wear

Long pants and long sleeves to reduce the exposure of skin to RCAs. (Riot Control Agents)

Wear only cotton or wool. Natural fibers are fire resistant whereas most of the synthetic materials are highly flammable and can quickly ignite from a spark from a flash bang or Molotov cocktail. When these materials burn they will melt right into your skin and cannot be removed without taking the skin with it.

A bicycle helmet, this can be a life saver in case agitators begin throwing rocks and you happen to be in the line of fire. Also useful as protection against police nightstick attacks.

A backpack, fill the book pocket, the pocket that is closest to the back straps, with a large hardcover book. This can act like body armor protecting your back from rubber bullets. In addition, it can be used as a shield by placing your forearm through the shoulder straps and holding the pack as a shield if front of you if you have to escape volleys of projectiles and rubber bullets.

A bandanna: can be used as an emergency bandage, sweat band, improvised dust mask, and washcloth.

Bring work gloves to protect your hands if you have to escape through broken windows, or other sharp wreckage caused by rioting. Wearing gloves will also help prevent burns if you have to remove smoking teargas canisters.
Wear work boots or hiking boots, or at least good high top leather runners. This is to help protect your feet from broken glass and sharp debris on the ground, and will help support your ankles when running, or climbing over barriers.
Wear protective eye-wear. The sports style sunglasses with padding on the inside such as used in racket ball and other sports works best. This is to protect against RCAs, rubber bullets and fragments from teargas canisters and Flash Bangs.

What to Carry

The riot police typically carry a lot of gear and it is a good idea for you to carry some items on your person as well.
Water: you can quickly become dehydrated standing outdoors and access to water may be restricted. Local stores may be closed for fear of rioting and looting and police may block off access to public fountains and washrooms. Bring 2 litres minimum and double if the temperatures are high.
Snacks: the excitement and physical exertion can quickly use up your glucose stores and leave you feeling weak and nauseous. Bring some snacks to nibble on through the day to maintain your blood sugar levels.

Cell Phone: to call for help, an attorney, or a cab to help you get out if you become trapped or arrested. A cell phone is also useful for filming the violation of human rights.

Pocket First Aid Kit: to treat minor injuries like cuts and blisters. Add one or two a chemical cold packs to help treat welts raised by rubber bullets and baton strikes.

Small Flashlight: in case you’re out after dark and the power goes out.

Cash: to pay for parking, or public transportation, or to hire a taxi.

Dust Mask: to help filter out riot control agents.

Identification: in case you are detained or arrested providing I.D. can get you released sooner.

Attorneys’ Business Card: If you participate regularly in an activist community you will eventually have an encounter with law enforcement. It is best to be prepared ahead of any such encounter by finding a reputable lawyer that specializes in civil rights cases and get several of his or her business cards to keep in your wallet and another in your protest emergency kit. Don’t rely solely on your cell phone for contact information since cell phones and other electronic devices will be seized when you are arrested.

How to Deal With Riot Control Agents

The term “riot control agents” (RCAs) refers to several gases commonly known as ‘Tear Gas’ or ‘Pepper Spray’. Exposure to these chemicals can cause skin, nose, and eye irritation, nausea, and respiratory difficulties within minutes. In rare cases, RCAs can cause long-term health complications, blindness, and even death. The effects generally last less than half an hour but can be extremely uncomfortable.
The first defense is to try to stay out of the line of fire and away from the front lines of the police. If the chemicals are released in front of you, you should run straight behind you to get out of range. Try to get upwind of the point of release where there is fresh air.
If RCAs are deployed inside a building, get out as quickly as possible. The chemicals do not dissipate as they would outdoors, and the high concentrations can be extremely dangerous with prolonged exposure.
Get to high ground. RCAs are heavier than air, and the highest concentrations thus tend to be near the ground. Try to get to the highest point possible. This could be up a hill, atop a wall, etc.
If you are caught in a smoke cloud, soak a bandanna or other cloth in apple-cider vinegar or lemon juice and tightly cover your mouth and nose with it. (Bring these items in your kit.)

Finally, avoid wearing oil-based creams or sunscreens, as these aid absorption of the RCAs. If you are exposed to these agents follow decontamination procedures.

In emergencies, dry powder such as flour, baking soda, detergents, or even soil can be used to reduce the quantity of chemical agent available for uptake through the skin. Pouring flour onto the chemical followed by wiping with wet tissue paper is reported to be effective against the nerve agents soman, VX, and mustard gas.

How to Escape a Riot

Try to look as inconspicuous as possible, and slowly and carefully move to the outside of the mob. Stay close to walls or other protective barriers if possible.
Get inside and stay inside if you can. Find a retail store, office building, or coffee shop to go into and off the streets. Look for a rear exit to these buildings that will lead out to a back street where there are no rioters or police and carefully make you way home.
It can be dangerous to move against a crowd, so go with the flow until you are able to escape into a doorway or up a side street or alley. It may also be advantageous to stay with the crowd until you are certain you can safely escape because it will help you remain inconspicuous and improve your odds of survival if shots are fired. In addition, police may barricade side routes and ambush anyone seeking to escape the main mob. You do not want to be the only person trying to get past a police barricade.
Avoid public transportation. Buses, subways, and trains will likely be out of service, and stations and depots will probably be packed with people. Even if you succeed in getting on a train or bus, rioters may stop it. Subway stations are particularly bad places to be, both because they are difficult to escape and because riot control agents are heavier than air and may drift down into subway stations and accumulate there.
Protesting in a police state can be a dangerous, if vital exercise of your basic human rights. You cannot trust that unstable elements within the ranks of law enforcement would not instigate violence that would trigger the police into attack mode. You could be entering a war zone, and so to protect yourself and fellow activists make sure you follow the advice given and come prepared.

Demonstrators clash with the police during a protest against an election meeting organised by right-wing political group The Party of the Swedes (Svenskarnas Parti), at the Kungstradgarden square in central Stockholm August 30, 2014.(Reuters / Fredrik Persson)

Demonstrators clash with the police during a protest against an election meeting organised by right-wing political group The Party of the Swedes (Svenskarnas Parti), at the Kungstradgarden square in central Stockholm August 30, 2014.(Reuters / Fredrik Persson)

Seven people suffered injuries after riot police clashed with anti-fascists at a neo-Nazi rally in Stockholm. Police say four law enforcement officers needed treatment, along with three civilians.

The march was organized by the Party of Swedes, a far-right organization, and attracted around 150 members. They were far outnumbered by those protesting against the gathering, with thousands gathering in the city center. The vast majority of protesters were well-behaved, but a minority attacked the police with firecrackers, bottles, eggs and panels from a security fence.

“We have had violent riots with people throwing objects at police,” police spokesman Lars Bystrom said, according to AP. He also mentioned that two arrests were made, one for “preparation of aggravated assault,” and another for climbing onto the roof of the Royal Opera House, where the neo-Nazi group started and ended their march.

The rally took place with Swedish parliamentary elections set to take place in two weeks. Just last week, on August 23, violence broke out at another march held by the Party of Swedes in Malmo, which has a high immigrant population with 31 percent of the city’s residents having been born abroad, according to the city’s official website.

The trouble started after anti-fascists tried to block the neo-Nazi march and clashed with the police ahead of a speech by Stefan Jacobsson, the leader of the Party of Swedes. Ten people were injured during the clashes, with many of the demonstrators critical of the heavy-handed tactics used by the police, which included a charge by officers mounted on horseback at the participants.

“I am shocked at the police’s excessive force,” Matilda Renkvist, one of the organizer of the demonstration, said.

This is not the first time Malmö has witnessed disturbing scenes of violence during protests. In March 2013, a standoff between anti-racist demonstrators and anti-Muslim group the Swedish Defense League (SDL) was similarly dispersed by police using horses, dogs and helicopters.

The Party of Swedes is campaigning on an anti-immigration ticket. Their program says they want to stop immigration and keep Swedish citizenship for people with “Western genetic and cultural heritage,” AP reports.

Formerly known as the National Socialist Front, they managed to win one local council seat in a small town in central Sweden in 2010. However, the Party of Swedes do not enjoy widespread support and with elections in a fortnight, they are not expected to gain nearly enough support to enter the national parliament…

The US gun lobby claims that guns save lives and keep us safe from criminals – what do social scientists say?

by Venkat Srinivasan

(Venkat Srinivasan is a writer and research engineer based in San Francisco. His work has appeared in Caravan and Wired among others.)

The first gun massacre in Blacksburg, Virginia, probably occurred on 8 July, 1755, when a group of native Americans entered Draper’s Meadow and killed four settlers – probably, because there are no rules as to how many killings make a massacre, and because the number of victims is disputed. Some historians have placed the death toll at eight. Draper’s Meadow was a frontier settlement on the edge of Virginia, between the Blue Ridge Mountains and Allegheny Mountains. The natives attacked it, because they felt threatened by the tyranny of the English settlers, who viewed their common land as personal property.

Today, Blacksburg is a vibrant college town, one that is routinely named one of the best places to raise children. Its local university, Virginia Tech, is unfortunately associated with another widely known gun massacre. On 16 April, 2007, a student named Seung-Hui Cho shot two other students in a college dorm a few metres from Draper’s Meadow, before entering a campus building with two handguns and 400 rounds of ammunition. Once in the building, Cho proceeded classroom-by-classroom, finding and killing 27 students and five university staff before shooting himself. His rampage was the worst mass shooting – a category unto itself – in American history, and many people called for stricter controls on guns its wake. But America’s gun rights lobby offered a different take. They argued that the massacre could have been prevented if only someone else in the building had had a gun.

One of Virginia’s biggest supporters of ‘defending your right to defend yourself’ with a gun is the Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL). To raise awareness, they run a stall at Blacksburg’s annual crafts, food and music festival, Steppin’ Out. Last year, it was adjacent to a street gymnastics competition for children. As the kids lined up to perform their routines and tumble on the mats, VCDL volunteers milled around distributing brochures about gun safety and gun rights lobbying. They also doled out bright, round, orange stickers proclaiming, in bold, black lettering: ‘Guns Save Lives.’

People of all ages – teenage girls and boys, adult women and men, parents with families – sported the sticker. Some slapped it on their bare upper arms, while others pasted it on their shirts. Kids and dogs wore them, too, though it’s a harder to imagine that the children, to say nothing of the dogs, had considered the sticker’s message carefully. Benjamin Sax, a former professor of religion at Virginia Tech, was at the festival that day with his seven-year-old daughter, who opted not to wear the sticker, asking her father: ‘Why do they do that?’ It’s a good question. With all that we now know about the gun, a fairly unambiguous weapon of destruction, why do some people still tout it as a saver of lives?

About 32,000 people are shot and killed every year in the United States. An additional 70,000 suffer non-fatal injuries from gun shots, three-quarters of which are due to interpersonal violence. Since 1968, more people have been killed by firearms on this civilian ‘peacetime’ battleground across the US than in all military conflicts beginning with the War of Independence in 1775. In 1997, the rate of firearm deaths among children under 15 years old was about 12 times higher in the US than the combined rate for 25 other industrialised countries. And in 2010, firearms accounted for 18,270 deaths or injuries to children and teenagers. The number of deaths due to guns has gone down from a peak in the early 1990s, but firearms still account for half the suicides and over two-thirds of all homicides. It is just a whole lot easier to kill with a bullet than by strangling, drowning, poisoning, or with fists, clubs and knives. But despite these ghastly statistics, one constantly encounters stickers, cable news hosts, and editorials insisting that guns save lives…

By Derek Henry, Holistic Health Coach for Healing the Body

By now, you may have heard that cancer rates are rising to a point where 44% of men and 39% of women will be diagnosed with the disease. With all the research and drugs being created over the past 30 years, you would think that it would at least be holding steady or declining, but, sadly, that is not the case. So what common patterns are we encountering for these rates to be rising so precipitously throughout North America? Turns out, a lot of our habits cause cancer.

Habits That Cause Cancer

There is a commonly held notion that ‘everything’ causes cancer nowadays, and although it may often be a flippant response from someone who is frustrated by all the things they need to avoid, it is becoming glaringly obvious that a wide variety of our core activities are indeed contributing to cancer growth.

What could be possibly causing these scary statistics? Let’s Look closely at this shortened list of cancer causing factors:

– X-rays
Sunlight ultraviolet rays (excess)
– EMF exposure
– Ionizing, microwave oven, and nonionizing radiation from domestic appliances
– Overhead power lines
– Nuclear radiation
– Pesticides and herbicides
– Industrial toxins
– Drinking or bathing in polluted, chlorinated, or fluoridated water
Smoking
– Hormonal therapies
– Immune suppressive drugs
– Consuming irradiated foods and food additives
– Mercury toxicity
– Dental fillings, root canals, cavitations and metals
– Use of street, prescription and non-prescription drugs
– Nutritional deficiencies
Consumption of synthetic ‘foods’
Chronic stress
– Negative emotions
– Depressed thyroid
Intestinal toxicity
– Parasites
– Viral, bacterial, and fungal infections
– Blocked detoxification pathways
– Genetic predisposition
– Physical irritants (e.g. asbestos)
Alcohol consumption

One can see from reading the list that many of us are currently, or have extensively in the past, engaged in these practices or had many of these challenges. When you consider the danger zone of cancer age wise, which seems to be in the mid 40′s to mid 50′s, these victims have been exposed to many of these factors for 4 or more decades!

Thats approximately 14,500+ days to put it into perspective. No wonder the body finally succumbs to the onslaught!

The only way to halt these scary cancer statistics is to be aware of the factors contributing to cancer, avoid them at all costs and engage in a clean and nourishing lifestyle that does not promote its growth.

What Can We Do to Avoid Cancer?

First of all, eat a clean, alkaline diet full of vitamins, minerals, enzymes and probiotics on a daily basis that supports the development of a healthy immune system. Examples of such foods include:

– Algae (e.g. chlorella, spirulina)
– Fermented foods (vegetables, kefirs)
– Medicinal mushrooms like reishi and chaga
Adaptogenic herbs like astragulus, gynostemma, siberian ginseng, goji
– Aloe vera
– Hemp
– Goji Berries
– Bee Pollen
– Garlic
– Kale
– Broccoli
– Cauliflower
– Cabbage
– Watercress
– Cilantro
– Berries
– Pomegranates

Also look to consume pure water, get fresh air, expose yourself to the sunshine for 15-20 minutes a day (don’t expose your skin to the point of burning), exercise and consider colonics and coffee enemas.

In contrast, you need to completely avoid:

  • Refined sugar
  • Conventional dairy (non-organic and pasteurized)
  • Glutinous grains (wheat, barley, spelt)
  • Soy (non-organic and unfermented)
  • Pork (even when organic)

You also need to limit:

  • Fruit juices and fruits with high levels of sugar (ie. pineapples, mangos, bananas)
  • Rice, oats, and corn (completely avoid GMO sources)
  • Animal protein (ensure beef is organic and grass fed, chicken is free range and organic, fish is wild caught and not farmed)

This is certainly not an exhaustive list, as entire books are catered to cancer therapies and how to avoid cancer altogether. The core theme in all of them is to:

Avoid all impurities in food, air and water
– Cleanse your body with alkaline, easily digestible and nutrient rich foods (including necessary whole food supplementation)
– Begin a protocol of liver cleansing and regenerating herbs

In addition to all that, you also need to understand that chronic negative thoughts can facilitate the growth of cancer cells. So don’t dwell on the past, focus on the present, and be optimistic about the future!

Putin: You better not come after a nuclear-armed Russia

By Greg Botelho and Laura Smith-Spark

(CNN)Don’t mess with Russia.

That was President Vladimir Putin’s message on Friday, the same day a British government source claimed that Russian troops had significantly ratcheted up their military incursion into Ukraine.

Moscow doesn’t want or intend to wade into any “large-scale conflicts,” Putin insisted at a youth forum, state-run Itar-Tass reported. A few breaths later, he made the point that Russia is “strengthening our nuclear deterrence forces and our armed forces,” making them more efficient and modernized.

“I want to remind you that Russia is one of the most powerful nuclear nations,” the President said. “This is a reality, not just words.”

He later warned, “We must always be ready to repel any aggression against Russia and (potential enemies) should be aware … it is better not to come against Russia as regards a possible armed conflict.”

The comments came the same day that Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov accused NATO of using “images from computer games” to — in his view — falsely make the case that Russian troops are in Ukraine. Lavrov said “hiding the evidence is an outstanding characteristic of the U.S. and many EU countries” with regard to Ukraine.

See the NATO satellite images

The thing is, many in the West don’t believe much of anything coming out of Russia.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Friday that — whatever the Kremlin says — the reality is Russian troops are inside the Ukraine and have fired on Ukrainian military positions.

“Those denials are completely without credibility,” Earnest said.

And Russia’s military may be getting digging in deeper in Ukraine. The British government source told CNN on Friday that Russia has moved 4,000 to 5,000 military personnel — a figure far higher than one U.S. official’s earlier claim of 1,000 troops.

The soldiers are aligned in “formed units” and fighting around Luhansk and Donetsk, said the UK source. And they may soon have company: Some 20,000 troops are on border and “more may be on the way,” the source adds.

So what’s Russia’s endgame? Does it simply want to protect civilians or ethnic Russians in Ukraine? Or does it endeavor to develop a land bridge between Crimea — which split from Ukraine to become part of Russia months ago, amid the unrest following President Viktor Yanukovych’s ouster — and the Russian border? Or perhaps take over all of Ukraine now?…

From: Slate

The best knockoffs in the world are in China. There are plenty of fake designer handbags and Rolexes, but China’s knockoffs go way beyond fashion. There are knockoff Apple stores that look so much like the real thing that some employees believe they are working in real Apple stores. And then there are entire knockoff cities. There are Venices with complete canals and replicas of the Doge’s Palace. A Paris with an Eiffel Tower and an Arc de Triomphe. In the suburbs of any Chinese city, there are endless examples of “duplitecture.”

Shanghai alone has 10 neighborhoods all built in the architectural styles of different European countries. Traffic permitting, it’s possible to travel from “Germany” to “Italy” to “England” in the course of a few hours.


In the suburbs of Hangzhou, China, the hallmarks of Parisian architecture have been recreated almost brick-for-brick in a sprawling residential development complete with churches and carriage rides.

These are not theme parks or novelties like one might see in Las Vegas. Duplitecture developments are functioning communities where Chinese families are raising their children and living their lives.

These communities also differ from American Chinatowns or Germantowns, which were established by immigrants. These are Chinese communities, in American- or European-styled buildings, designed primarily by Chinese architects.


China’s carbon copy of Venice offers Italian-inspired la dolce vita living in townhouses overlooking a network of man-made canals on which “gondoliers” navigate gondolas under stone bridges.

These replica buildings resemble the originals to varying degrees. The buildings might be larger or smaller than the real things. They might be made of different materials or even painted another color. As such, duplitecture can become a warped caricature of the original.

Developers take a lot of liberties with duplitecture construction, sometimes adjusting the replicas to work in accordance with the principles of feng shui.

Nevertheless, a lot of these duplitecture communities have rules to actively discourage any behavior that they think might disrupt the “European feel” of the development.

To further create the impression of a Paris, there might be a French bakery or a Bastille Day celebration.


The gargantuan villas at Beijing’s Palais de Fortune development have been built with materials imported from France and have each been named after prized symbols of French culture, from the Louvre to Versailles.
