In Groundbreaking Ruling, FAA Empowered To Enforce Regulations Against Drones – 19 November 2014

RT logoThe Federal Aviation Administration does have the authority to apply its standing rules against alleged reckless or careless use of manned aircraft to unmanned aircraft, or drones, as well, the US aviation safety board has ruled.

According to AP, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) said Tuesday that current federal regulations defining aircraft as “any device … used for flight in the air” applies to “any aircraft, manned or unmanned, large or small.”

The NTSB voted unanimously in favor of the decision, sending the case – the first in which the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) fined a drone operator – back to an administrative law judge to rule if the flight in question was “careless or reckless.”

The case involves Raphael Pirker, who was fined $10,000 by the FAA for flying his Ritewing Zephyr drone that he was using to shoot a video on the University of Virginia campus in 2011. Pirker appealed the fine, filing a motion to dismiss the case.

Jon Rappoport – Jerry (Ben & Jerry’s) Lives In A Fake World – 19 November 2014

jon7The first time I realized the money and the leadership of the anti-GMO movement was guiding millions of people into ballot-labeling initiatives, I pictured a million people in the street calmly marching in orderly columns against the Vietnam War.

They all held pretty pink signs that said: “You have a right to know that war might be dangerous.”

Of course, there was a forced national draft at the time, so there was no legal right to choose staying at home vs. going to Vietnam. Continue reading

Missouri Governor Unable To Explain Who’s In Charge In Ferguson – 19 November 2014

RT logoThe governor of Missouri activated the National Guard on Monday ahead of what could be a new wave of mass protests, but doesn’t seem certain at all about who will be in charge of law enforcement operations in the coming days.

Gov. Jay Nixon’s decision to call up the Guard and declare a state of emergency raised questioned on Monday about what authorities are anticipating will happen when a federal grand jury will decide — likely within days — whether or not to indict Ferguson, MO police officer Darren Wilson on charges related to the August shooting death of Michael Brown, an unarmed black teen.

Nixon was largely unable to provide answers during a telephone press conference that occurred with reporters later that day, though. Audio of that teleconference captured by Guardian journalist Jon Swaine is now causing concerns to mount further as reporters realize that the governor might have less of a grasp on the situation in Ferguson than many would like to believe.

Obama: I Will Send US Troops To Fight ISIS If They Get Nukes – 19 November 2014

RT logo(Lucas : So this is pretext for what is going to happen Obama?  Are the USA /NATO and banker cronies going to fabricate  a Weapons of Mass Destruction like Iraq again.)

US President Barack Obama has, for the first time, admitted he would deploy US ground troops to Syria and Iraq to fight Islamic State – that is, if the extremist group obtained a nuclear weapon.

“If we discovered that [Islamic State] had gotten possession of a nuclear weapon, and we had to run an operation to get it out of their hands, then, yes,” Obama told reporters at a news conference in Brisbane, Australia, on Sunday. “I would order it.”

Since Operation Inherent Resolve – or US-led airstrikes against Islamic State (also known as ISIS or ISIL) – began in August, President Obama has maintained that he would not send a large fighting force to Syria and Iraq to confront the jihadist network, which has come to control large areas of the two adjacent Middle Eastern nations.

What Would You Do?: Interracial Couple Faces Criticism

Living in a country filled with race-baiting, fanning the flames of “difference,” I find this video highly, highly encouraging. People are seeing through the idea that violence and hatred provide any kind of solution, instead choosing to transcend to a level of heartfelt connection and healing. Just beautiful!

Japan’s PM Dissolves Parliament, Puts Off Tax Rise To Save ‘Abenomics’ – 19 November 2014

RT logoJapanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe says he is going to dissolve the lower chamber of parliament on November 21 and call early elections in an effort to save his grand economic strategy dubbed “Abenomics.”

Abe has also put off another sales tax rise to give the economy more time to recover.

Increasing the sales tax from 8 percent to 10 percent has been postponed for 18 months until April 2017. Monday’s GDP figures show the country has slipped back into recession. Japan’s economy shrank 1.6 percent in the third quarter of 2014, which marked the second consecutive 3-month period of contraction.

The news was a shock to financial markets and another blow to Abe’s three-stage economic plan aimed at putting an end to two decades of stagnation and deflation.

Russia’s Biggest Bank Launches Financing In Chinese Yuan – 19 November 2014

RT logoSberbank, Russia’s largest lender, will be the first bank in the country to start issuing credit guarantees denominated in Chinese yuan. The new yuan-based letters of credit ensure payments between buyers and sellers, with the bank acting as a router.

This will make payments for import contracts settled in yuan more seamless, the bank said in a statement Tuesday.

“An important aspect of these transactions is that post-import financing was attracted in Chinese yuan, which is especially relevant given the existing market environment,” the statement says. “Starting transitions in RMB will allow customers to not only meet current funding requirements and settlements, but also to continue active cooperation with Chinese suppliers.”

No Fracking, We’re German! Berlin Reiterates Moratorium On Drilling – 19 November 2014

RT logoGermany says it is not going to loosen restrictions concerning its moratorium on fracking. A report in Der Spiegel had said the government was considering making it easier to extract shale gas and allow test drilling.

The government said on Monday it has no plans to lift the ban on fracking, Reuters reported.

Currently there are only plans to allow fracking at a depth below 3,000 meters to ensure that the water supply does not become contaminated. The effective ban is popular with Germans as the process of hydraulic fracturing involves pumping water and chemicals through drill holes at a high pressure to try and open rocks that may contain gas.
