Nearly Four-Dozen Arrested In Ferguson On Eve Of Attorney General’s Visit – 10 August 2014

RT logoA relatively calm evening gave way to the arrest of 47 protesters early Wednesday morning in Ferguson, Missouri, marking the eleventh night of demonstrations touched off by the killing of an unarmed black teenager by a local police officer.

Attorney General Eric Holder is due to visit the majority-black St. Louis suburb at 11 a.m. local time for an update on the federal civil rights investigation concerning the fatal shooting of Michael Brown, 18, on August 9 by Darren Wilson, one of 50 white Ferguson police officers on a 53-member force. Wilson has been kept in seclusion since it was revealed he was the shooter, while Brown’s family and supporters have pressed for his arrest in the slaying.

In a letter to the Ferguson community published by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Holder stressed that the US Department of Justice probe will be fair and independent of the concurrent investigation being conducted by local authorities.

It’s very easy (yet very unwise) to fall into depression and similar qualities over unimportant things that pose no relevance in the big picture, but many of you will find that it’s much harder to re-reach the positive space you’d worked so hard to reach when you do.

In order to anchor a higher vibration, you’ll need to be willing to hollow out your egos so they can be proper receptors for the energy and inspiration of the brimming heart. If you can’t connect with your heart, you won’t connect with your higher selves very easily and you may find it difficult to reach the loving space that helps you thrive. Continue reading

Steve Lendman – Failure In Cairo – 20 August 2014

StevelendmanIt didn’t surprise. Failure was inevitable. Talks were dead on arrival. Israeli policy is hardline. It’s all take and no give.

Rogue terror states operate this way. Israel is one of the worst. It’s a democracy in name only.
It treats Palestinians like subhumans. It considers its Arab citizens fifth column threats.
It ignores fundamental international laws. It violates them repeatedly. It does so unaccountably.

Switzerland To EU: We Don’t Want To Sidestep Russian Food Ban – 20 August 2014

RT logoSwitzerland has said it will not re-export European agricultural products to Russia that now can’t get access to the country’s market.

Ebola Crisis: Air France Crews Call For Flight Cancellations – 20 August 2014

John Ward – Just When You Think The Media Have Hit Rock Bottom, You Realise They’re Merely Wading About In Deep Shit – 20 August 2014

JohnWCon Coughlin had another of his surreal columns in the Telegraph earlier in the week, the most alarming phrase in which was ‘if the Kurds fail to defeat the Islamist insurgents, then we should be prepared to do what the French did in Mali last year, and send in a British battle group to rout the Islamic fighters once and for all’. Obviously nobody briefed Con on the defence cuts (he’s only the Telegraph’s Defence Correspondent anyway) but the key words in that extract are ‘rout the Islamic fighters once and for all’. Mr Coughlin is from the ‘one last heave’ school of military intervention, and has learned nothing from Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, or even dare I say it, Vietnam. Continue reading
