Steve Lendman – Putin’s Approval Rating v. Obama’s – 30 December 2014

StevelendmanPutin is the world’s leading geopolitical leader. Obama is a world-class thug. It shows in their approval ratings.

Despite Russia’s economic woes, Putin’s remains extraordinarily high. A recent Levada Center poll has him at 85%.

Most Russians want no one else leading them. For good reason. They admire his geopolitical leadership.

The Times named UK Independence Party (UKIP) leader Nigel Farage its “Britain of the year.” For his “game-changing politics.”

He called Putin the world leader he most admires. He’s not alone. None match his resolve to end conflicts peacefully. Polar opposite Obama’s obsession for war. Continue reading


Mish/ Mike Shedlock – Gmail Dead In China, All Google Products Blocked; Reserve Currency Silliness Review – 30 December 2014

MishMikeShedlockAccess to Gmail in China was difficult, but not impossible. Workarounds included Outlook, Apple Mail, and third-party Gmail hosts.

Starting last Friday, the “Great Firewall” became nearly impenetrable as China’s Censors Took Final Step in Blocking Gmail.
In the six months since Google’s mail service Gmail was blocked in mainland China, users had been able to access it using third-party email applications such as Microsoft Outlook or Apple Mail.

Beijing now appears to have closed the loophole, completely shutting down access to Gmail behind the so-called Great Firewall. Google data showed Gmail appeared to have been walled off starting Friday. Google spokesman Taj Meadows acknowledged the drop in traffic and said Monday that “there’s nothing wrong on our end.” Continue reading

Turning Plastic Into Food? Incubator With Hungry Fungi Can Do Just That – 30 December 2014

RT logoTwo Austrian designers have teamed up with Utrecht University to develop an incubator dubbed the ‘Fungi Mutarium.’ It cultivates plastic-digesting fungi, which is edible.

Researchers at Yale University in 2012 discovered a rare variety of mushroom that could break down polyurethane, a type of plastic. What followed was a wave of research exploring how fungi can degrade plastic without retaining any of its toxicity.

Along came Katharina Unger, who thought: “What if this waste could be turned into food?” And with five trillion pieces of plastic clogging up the world’s oceans, there is no shortage of raw material.

NaturalNews – Ethan A. Huff – Ten Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Vaccinate Your Children – 30 December 2014

NaturalNewss Logo-April-2014(NaturalNews) Vaccinating a child or not is an important decision that every parent must make. But not all parents understand the true risks involved, risks that could leave a child debilitated for life, or even kill him. The pro-vaccine mafia is quick to sweep all cases of vaccine-related injury and death under the rug as extremely rare anomalies, but many a parent of a vaccine-injured child will be the first to tell you that, if she could do it all over again, she wouldn’t have let her kid get jabbed.

If your doctor, your child’s school administrator, or a friend or family member is pressuring you to inject your child with genetically modified (GM) viruses, heavy metals and preservatives, and you’re not sure how to make the best and most informed choice in the matter — or even how to respond back to these people intelligently in order to shut them up — consider the following 10 reasons not to go the vaccination route[1]: Continue reading

ZeroHedge – China Leading Index Plunges To Worst Since Feb 2009 Sending Yuan To Lower Trading Band Extreme – 30 December 2014

ZeroHedgeChina’s Leading Index has fallen to its lowest since Feb 2009 this evening, down 4 straight months from credit-driven 18 month highs. This economic weakness has exaggerated the already weak tone in Yuan trading this evening pushing CNY to its weakest in almost 7 months (against the USD), its furthest on record from the CNY Fix (10-month highs), and very close to the PBOC’s upper +2% band for CNY trading. At 6.23, USDCNY is over 1000 pips weaker than the CNY fix. We suspect the weakness in Yuan is also driven by further corruption crackdowns as China will require VIP gamblers in Macau to undergo a record check.
