Steve Lendman – Russia Counters US Big Lies With Hard Truths – 28 January 2015

StevelendmanUS Big Lies proliferate with disturbing regularity. Obama is a notorious serial liar. His January 20 State of the Union address the latest example.

A previous article said it combined demagogic rubbish, duplicitous boilerplate, pure fantasy, colossal arrogance, and a contemptible assertion of US supremacy.
Boastful empty rhetoric substitutes for responsible leadership. Obama’s legacy reflects permanent wars on humanity at home and abroad.
More murders by drones than all his predecessors combined. Death squad diplomacy worldwide.

NaturalNewss Logo-April-2014(NaturalNews) Wednesday, January 28, 2015, is a date that anti-fluoridation activists in Dallas, Texas — and perhaps around the nation– are eagerly awaiting. It’s the date that City Hall officials are expected to decide whether or not fluoridation of the public water works will continue.(1)

Sites dedicated to getting such toxicity out of the area water supply are in full swing, one being the Fluoride Action North Texas Facebook page. Several posts there encourage making one’s voice heard about the issue, urging people to appear at Dallas City Hall (1500 Marilla Street) at 8:00 in the morning on decision day.(2)

The Facebook page is filled with informative videos addressing the problem of fluoride in drinking water and also includes numerous images of people holding signs with the January 28 date along with the wording, “Dallas City Council Vote No!”(2)

5 Sub-Earth-Sized Planets Discovered Orbiting Ancient Sun-Like Star – 28 January 2015

RT logoAn international team of astronomers has discovered an “unusual” star system that is comprised of the oldest known star hosting planets, 11.2 billion years old. To compare, the Big Bang is considered to have happened 13.8 billion years ago.

The discovery of an ancient star located 117 light-years from Earth, was based on observations made by NASA’s Kepler satellite, and was announced on Tuesday in the Astrophysical Journal by scientists from Europe, Australia and the US.

The oldest star to have been found so far hosting planets slightly smaller than the Earth, Kepler-444 has five planets orbiting it. Their sizes vary between those of Mercury and Venus, and they orbit their parent star in less than 10 days, at less than one-tenth Earth’s distance from the sun. The lack of liquid water and high levels of radiation make them uninhabitable, scientists revealed.

‘If SWIFT Gets Weaponized, An Alternative System Is Absolutely Realistic’ – 28 January 2015

RT logoWhile the West may try to slap Russia with more sanctions, the SWIFT banking payment system will try to stay out of political crossfire, economist Max Fraad Wolff told RT, adding that if it eventually gets weaponized, an alternative will emerge.

RT: Do you think Russia will be blocked from SWIFT, or is this just an idle threat?

Max Fraad Wolff: So far it seems like it is mostly talk. But this has been threatened. We have seen it come up a few times. The rumor mill suggests it came up around comments by VTB Bank and the folks associated with that large Russian bank in and around Davos. Obviously the Russian sanctions were a major conversational piece in Davos most recently. And we have seen the escalation of sanctions.

NaturalNews – Jonathan Bens oVaccines Cause Sudden Death, Proves Document Hidden By Big Pharma For Two Years – 28 January 2015

NaturalNewss Logo-April-2014(NaturalNews) An Italian court has unearthed a formerly classified document that proves vaccines cause death, and that vaccine companies don’t want you to know this. As published on the U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM) website, a 1,271-page report by British drug firm GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) reveals that certain combination vaccines administered to children are known to cause sudden death, but the company chose to obscure and conceal this in official safety reports.

The document deals specifically with the Infanrix Hexa vaccine (combined diphtheria, tetanus, acellular pertussis, hepatitis B, inactivated poliomyelitis and haemophilus influenza type B) made by GSK, as well as the Prevenar 13 vaccine by Pfizer and several other vaccines. It explains that, contrary to the skewed data presented by GSK suggesting that dozens of sudden death cases following vaccination were not linked to Infanrix Hexa, the same data broken down by time of occurrence reveals that the vaccine was, in fact, directly linked to the deaths.

‘Storm Of The Century’ A Bust In NYC As Blizzard Piles On Other States – 28 January 2015

RT logoIn the wake of warnings from city and state officials about an impending and “historic” snowstorm, New Yorkers dutifully prepared for the worst. Grocery store shelves were emptied. Cars were banned from the roads. Even public transportation was shuttered.

The problem? For much of New York City – as well as New Jersey and Philadelphia – the “storm of the century” never materialized.

On Tuesday, most New Yorkers woke up to snowfall that measured in inches – not feet. The subways and buses were operating again, and many wondered just what all the fuss was about leading up to the blizzard. Various parts of New York City saw between four and 10 inches of snow. In New Jersey and Philadelphia, where more than a foot of snow was predicted, just three to five inches fell.

Greece has something like €315 billion of public debt.

Forget about that. Instead focus on liabilities as presented in Revised Greek Default Scenario: Liabilities Shifted to German and French Taxpayers; Bluff of the Day Revisited.

The above total is a “modest” €256 billion to be paid back over time.

  1. Assume 0% interest
  2. Assume a Current Account Surplus of 3% of GDP
  3. Assume Greek Debt-to-GDP is 176%
  4. Assume Greek Debt €312 billion
  5. Assume Greek GDP is €178 billion

Gigantic Ring System 200 Times Larger Than Saturn Discovered – 28 January 2015

RT logoAstronomers have discovered a massive ring system circling the exoplanet or brown dwarf dubbed J1407b. One scientist referred to it as a “super Saturn” due to its size. In fact, it may even be home to a moon the size of Earth.

The discovery marks the first time a ring system has been seen existing outside of our solar system. New analysis shows there are over 30 rings in the system, each measuring tens of millions of kilometers in diameter. Scientists also discovered gaps in the rings, which indicate that satellites (exomoons) may have formed.

The star is much too far away to observe the rings directly, but we could make a detailed model based on the rapid brightness variations in the star light passing through the ring system. If we could replace Saturn’s rings with the rings around J1407b, they would be easily visible at night and be many times larger than the full moon,” Leident Observatory astronomer Matthew Kenworthy said in a news release.

Israel Launches Airstrikes On Syria Following Rocket Attack, ‘Red Line’ Warning From Iran – 28 January 2015

RT logoIsraeli jets struck several targets in Syria in response to Hezbollah rocket fire into the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, the IDF said. The exchange came as Iran warned Tel Aviv of crossing a “red line” with the murder of an Iranian general in Syria.

The Israeli Air Force (IAF) announced striking Syrian army artillery targets late on Tuesday night in response to an earlier rocket attack on Golan Heights and Mount Hermon.

“The IDF views the Syrian regime as responsible for what occurs in its territory, and will act at any time and any way it sees fit to protect the citizens of Israel,” the IDF said.

Israel’s retaliation followed two rocket attacks believed to be perpetrated by Hezbollah in the northern Golan Heights on Tuesday afternoon. While the projectiles exploded in open territory and caused no damage or casualties, some 1,000 visitors to the Mount Hermon ski resort still fled for cover.
