Jon Rappoport – Are We Living Inside A Virtual Simulation? – 13 August 2014

jon7A 2013 study out of Bonn University led to a new round of speculation about the nature of the universe.

The study proposes that cosmic rays undergo a strange energy shift. The energies are “re-fitted” to align with an underlying pattern or lattice. There is only one proper fit; no exceptions are permitted.

If the lattice is, indeed, a basic pixel-like Reality we are interacting with every day of our lives, then we could be living inside a created artifice.

A simulation. Continue reading

Obama To Decide On Deployment Of Ground Troops In Iraq Within Days – 13 August 2014

RT logoA senior White House advisor announced on Wednesday that United States President Barack Obama may soon send ground troops to Iraq in order to try to rescue tens of thousands of displaced Yezidis trapped on a mountain there.

Ben Rhodes, a deputy national security adviser for the Obama administration, said during a press conference early Wednesday that the White House is considering further options regarding the crisis in Iraq, where militants with the Islamic State, formerly ISIS, have forced waves of religious Yezidis to take refuge on Sinjar mountain in northern Iraq.

The US has already been delivering food and water to the trapped Yezidis, Rhodes said from a presser in Massachusetts where Pres. Obama is vacationing, but further action must be taken immediately.

UK Prisoners Detained In Cells Without Power Or Running Water For 2 Days – 13 August 2014

RT logoA British prison has been slammed for holding inmates in cells without running water or electricity for over two days. The facility is run by Serco, a controversial UK contractor that specializes in weapons contracts, prisons and detention centers.

Dire conditions at HMP Doncaster, a category B prison with more than 1,000 inmates, were discovered following an unannounced inspection by Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Prisons (HMIP).

The prison is marked by acute levels of violence that are over four times those typically present in similar facilities, inspectors said. In certain cases, “extremely violent” incidents required external support, and had to be reported to the police. A wing of the establishment was also recently damaged by vandalism and fire.

Ebola A ‘High Risk’ In Kenya, WHO Warns – 13 August 2014

RT logoThe World Health Organization (WHO) has said that Kenya is at “high risk” of the spread of the deadly Ebola virus because it is a major transport hub, with several flights a day to West Africa where the disease is running riot.

This is the most serious warning to date that the disease could spread to East Africa. So far it has been limited to West Africa, where it has ravaged Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia, killing more than 1,000 people.

Nigeria, Africa’s most populous country, is the latest to be hit. The country of over 150 million people has now seen three deaths from Ebola.

The EU is not working to thwart Russian trade with Latin America and elsewhere in the world, EU spokesman Peter Stano tells RT.

Russia is seeking out new suppliers to fill the substantial gap left after it banned food imports from the EU, US, Australia, Canada, and Norway. However, the EU is reportedly trying to interfere and persuade other countries not to gain from the EU’s misfortune.

The Financial Times reported the EU is allegedly working to try and convince Brazil, Chile, and other Latin American countries not to meet Russia’s demand for agricultural products.

“The EU is now assessing the impact of Russia’s announcement on EU products. And we are of course in contact with other countries, countries that could become potential suppliers for goods that Russia has banned from its market from EU producers,” spokesperson Peter Stano told RT in an interview.

UK Govt To Block Arms Exports to Israel If Gaza Fighting Resumes – 13 August 2014

RT logo(Lucas: the title says enough about how to be a hypocrite… and in your face supporting Israel for wiping out the Palestinian nation and its inhabitants.)

Twelve licenses for British companies to sell arms to Israel will be suspended if fresh hostilities break out in Gaza, the UK government announced, following a review of licensed exports to Tel Aviv.

The review, released Tuesday, found the vast majority of exports currently licensed for Israel are not for items that could be used by Israeli forces in operations in Gaza in response to attacks by Hamas.

Business Secretary Vince Cable welcomed the current ceasefire in Gaza and expressed hope that this would lead to a peaceful resolution. He said, however, that the government had thus far been able to clarify whether the export criteria were being met.
