NYPD Enlisting Muslim Informants From Minor Violators – 11 May 2014

RT logoNew York police have been recruiting for informants in holding facilities for immigrants, most of them Muslims, aiming to “talk them” into spying on their own community in cafes, restaurants and mosques, documents obtained by The New York Times show.

Less than a month has passed since the highly publicized announcement that the NYPD has disbanded its highly controversial Zone Assessment Unit, or as it is known to the city’s Muslim community, the Demographics Unit.
However, the recruitment of immigrants to eavesdrop on conversations in Muslim neighborhoods shows no signs of easing, according to a New York Times article, which says 220 such recruitment attempts were made in the first quarter of this year alone by a unit known as the Citywide Debriefing Team.

Russia’s ‘Civilized’ Offshore? Moscow Allocates $1.5 Bn For Crimea – 11 May 2014

RT logo$1.5 billion (55.4 bln rubles) has been allocated by Moscow to the Russian republic of Crimea and Sevastopol to balance its budget in 2014. But what is on Moscow’s mind regarding the peninsular?

Earlier, Russia’s Finance Ministry earmarked $6.9 billion (243 billion rubles) in financial support for the country’s brand new subjects, and estimated that the Crimean Peninsula will be deficit- and aid- free by 2017.

Euphoria upon returning under the safety of the Russian flag seems endless in Crimea and the traditional countrywide May vacation period undoubtedly adds to the sense of jubilation and hope for a better future. The monotony of a daily routine should soon settle, however, and the region’s prosperity now highly depends on active steps by the government in search for the winning road map.

‘Sibling’ Sun Found 110 Light Yrs From Earth – 11 May 2014

RT logoThe sun could have a sibling according to researchers at the University of Texas, who believe the star was born from the same cloud of gas as our sun. It is hoped this could give astronomers fresh insights into how life on earth started.

The study was conducted by astronomer Ivan Ramirez, based at the University of Texas, who says that the star is 110 light years away from Earth.

“We want to know where we were born,” Ramirez said in a statement announcing his discovery. “If we can figure out in what part of the galaxy the sun formed, we can constrain conditions on the early solar system. That could help us understand why we are here.”

Marlene Swetlishoff – Hilarion – 11 May 2014

marlene1-1Beloved Ones,

For many of you these are difficult times. Your physical bodies keep going through recalibrations and transformations and the symptoms experienced are oftentimes not pleasant. There are many feelings of deep sadness that come out of nowhere and it can put you into a depressed state. It is important should this occur, to put a determined effort into changing that perspective. Do something that makes you feel good, something that makes you laugh. Get outdoors and dig in your garden, feel a connection with the Earth. When people feel out of sorts, being out in nature is very soothing, grounding and healing to their human operating systems. It is also important to examine your inner thought processes and change those that hold you in an unhappy space. It requires diligent observation to see and to understand that you might hold thought patterns that do not serve the person you have become and the person you are expanding into each and every day. The greatest challenge here is to recognize these ingrained thoughts and accept responsibility for changing them. Continue reading

Steve Lendman – Fascist Killers – 11 May 2014

StevelendmanThree nations among others stand out: America, Israel and Ukraine.
America’s deplorable history reflects barbarism writ large. Killing civilians is longstanding policy. Doing so violates core international law.
It prohibits collective punishment. It forbids attacking noncombatants. Targets unrelated to military necessity are strictly off-limits.
Lawless attacks constitute crimes of war, against humanity and genocide. Committing them reflects official US policy. It’s been so throughout America’s sordid history.
