Russia To Block Websites That Call For Rioting, ‘Extremism’ Without Court Ruling – 21 December 2013

RT logo(Lucas: What: define extreme and riot. Is that as in not conform Putin’s ideas of what is or not and is riot as in protests that even with permission of one protester is gonna be seen as rioting…Oh yes forgot Pussy Riot… or wat it in the name Riot. Just see the shit for what it is.. It is all just nothing more than control on humans and democracy is just another word for being able to vote for government without getting ever a real say as all is already bought, or with corporations and lobby decided to be in the interest of them not you. Watch the EU, the TPP that is upcoming the fast tracking of laws, rules and regulations, treaties and agreements without you ever having a say in not being ruled by a little group and multinationals. )

Russia’s lawmakers have passed a bill authorizing prosecutors to issue emergency orders without a court ruling that block websites promoting rioting, racial hatred or extremism. Critics fear the law may infringe constitutional rights.

Under the bill, which has passed its third and final reading in the State Duma, a special agency can be set up within the Prosecutor General’s Office to surf the web in search of provocative messages. Only the Prosecutor General and his deputies will be able to order the blocking of websites.

The site owner will find out about the blocking after it happens. The website would be unblocked immediately after the content deemed to be illegal is removed.

EU Bureaucrats Blocking Talks With Russia On Ukraine Row – Lavrov – 21 December 2013

RT logoRussia and some EU countries are eager to sit down for trilateral talks with Ukraine to try and settle the integration debacle. But overreaching bureaucrats in Brussels are opposing this intention, says Russia’s foreign minister.

FM Sergey Lavrov was describing the debate over proposed trilateral talks, which would involve Russia, the EU and Ukraine and would be aimed at finding a compromise solution and address concerns of all the parties involved. Ukraine last month delayed signing a key EU free trade deal, a move which sparked anti-government protests in the country and led to a public trade of blame between European and Russian officials.

“Holding trilateral consultations, which would be aimed at an honest discussion of the current trade conditions between Russia, the European Union and Ukraine, with no attempts to conceal anything of cheat each other, would be a very good proposition,” Lavrov said in an interview with RIA Novosti.

Dana Mrkich – Venus Retrograde And Christmas – 21 December 2013

Dana Colour Pic NewIn the days leading up to Christmas this year, more of us are feeling over the pressure to go somewhere/buy something/be someone that we don’t really feel like going to/buying/being. So there is this sense of ‘something’s got to give’ between what you really want to do and what you feel you are supposed to do.
Partly this is due to our overall awakening, as we feel more disconnected from external systems, structures, rules and value systems and yearn to connect more with whatever is truly important to us, including and especially our authentic nature.  Continue reading
