Merck senior management tried to pay off its own vaccine scientists to remain silent about scientific fraud

Back in 2010, two former Merck scientists, repulsed by what they saw taking place at the highest levels of the company, filed a False Claims Act in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. The filing accuses Merck of lying about the safety and effectiveness of MMR vaccines, tampering with study data, defrauding the U.S. government and various other high-level crimes.

Claims by Merck that the mumps component of the MMR vaccine is "95 percent effective" are also questioned in the filing. Stephen Krahling and Joan Wlochowski say Merck senior management falsified data specifically on the effectiveness of the mumps vaccine, intentionally spiking blood samples with animal antibodies in order to trick the public into thinking that the vaccine is effective.

Europe Fractures: France Pivots To Putin, Cyprus Offers Moscow Military Base, Germany-US Splinter On Ukraine

Following yesterday's summary of the utter farce that the Minsk Summit/Ukraine "peace" deal talks have become, the various parties involved appear to be fracturing even faster today. The headlines are coming thick and fast but most prescient appears to be: Despite John Kerry's denial of any split between Germany and US over arms deliveries to Ukraine, German Foreign Minister Steinmeier slammed Washington's strategy for being "not just risky but counterproductive." But perhaps most significantly is France's continued apparent pivot towards Russia...

Banking Giant HSBC Sheltered Murky Cash Linked to Dictators and Arms Dealers

Secret documents reveal that global banking giant HSBC profited from doing business with arms dealers who channeled mortar bombs to child soldiers in Africa, bag men for Third World dictators, traffickers in blood diamonds and other international outlaws.

The leaked files, based on the inner workings of HSBC’s Swiss private banking arm, relate to accounts holding more than $100 billion. They provide a rare glimpse inside the super-secret Swiss banking system — one the public has never seen before.

Tsipras favours Greek jobless over creditors in defiant policy speech

The Greek prime minister, Alexis Tsipras, has announced his anti-austerity government programme in a defiant address that prioritised the jobless and destitute over international creditors who have lent the country more than $300bn (£200bn).

In his first policy speech before parliament, he said his government did not have the right to prolong the five-year bailout deal that has foisted austerity on Greece, and felt a duty “not to disappoint” those who had voted him into power.

“We see hope, dignity and pride returning to Greek citizens. Our obligation and duty is not to disappoint them,” he told the 300-seat house. “We realise that negotiations [with foreign lenders] won’t be easy … but we have faith in our struggle, because justice is on our side.”

The fiddling with temperature data is the biggest science scandal ever

When future generations look back on the global-warming scare of the past 30 years, nothing will shock them more than the extent to which the official temperature records – on which the entire panic ultimately rested – were systematically “adjusted” to show the Earth as having warmed much more than the actual data justified.

Two weeks ago, under the headline “How we are being tricked by flawed data on global warming”, I wrote about Paul Homewood, who, on his Notalotofpeopleknowthat blog, had checked the published temperature graphs for three weather stations in Paraguay against the temperatures that had originally been recorded. In each instance, the actual trend of 60 years of data had been dramatically reversed, so that a cooling trend was changed to one that showed a marked warming.

ETHNIC CLEANSING: ISRAEL’S ULTIMATE STRATEGY TOWARD THE PALESTINIANS

In a farewell speech, outgoing UN Special Coordinator for the so-called “Middle East peace process” Robert Serry has warned the apartheid state of Israel that continued settlement building in the West Bank was killing any remaining chances for the two-state solution.

Serry said the killing of the two-state solution strategy would transform Israel into a bi-national state.

Israeli leaders, with the exception of some isolated voices, scoffed at Serry’s remarks, with some spokespersons calling these remarks “stale and stupid.”

British Police Officer Used Department Helicopter to Film Sexual Acts, Kept the Footage for His Personal Collection

Officer Adrian Pogmore, 48, of Yorkshire, England, and a father of two, recorded the footage back in 2008. The footage went public when his wife leaked the information to the department as she was going through a separation with Pogmore.

“He’s accused of looking at dogging sites while the chopper was meant to be on patrol,” said a source for The Sun. “It is also claimed he took footage of a couple having sex down a country lane.”

The term dogging is a British slang word that refers to couples engaging in sexual intercourse.

In order to verify the story, they searched his home, and found the footage on a disc.

Ukraine 'Peace' Talks In Tatters: Defiant Putin "Won't Tolerate Unipolar World"; Hollande Proposes "Strong Autonomy" For Rebel Region

Just as the existing 'truce' in Ukraine has been made a total farce as 1000s of military and civilians have been killed, so any 'hope' that this weekend's "peace efforts" will result in anything but more talk is rapidly diminishing... Germany's Merkel exclaimed honestly that it's "uncertain whether this will be successful," seemingly resigned to the fact as she added, "but it's at least worth making an attempt." French President Hollande admitted that Ukraine's eastern regions likely need "strong autonomy."

Young woman at the center of Prince Andrew scandal says the FBI have videos of her having sex with Jeffrey Epstein and 'powerful friends' while she was underage

The woman at the centre of the Prince Andrew 'sex slave' scandal has told a US court that she believes the FBI has videos of her having sex with Jeffrey Epstein and his 'powerful friends' while she was underage.

Virginia Roberts, who alleges that she was loaned out to the Duke of York and other high-profile Epstein associates, also stated that she feared for her life while working as Epstein's 'sex slave'.

It comes a week after Epstein, an American billionaire who has been convicted of soliciting underage prostitution, hit out at 'outlandish attacks' by the 'gossip media' over the case.

Chilcot report will be 'devastating' says No 10 as it emerges THIRTY are in the firing line of heavily critical Iraq Inquiry... and Blair's secret letters to Bush to be revealed in full

Thirty people, including Tony Blair, are set to be heavily criticised by the Chilcot Inquiry in its ‘devastating’ attack on the Iraq War.

Well-placed sources say that ‘approximately 30’ people have been sent letters by chairman Sir John Chilcot warning them that they will be criticised in his report into the 2003 invasion.

They include the former Prime Minister and ex-Foreign Secretary Jack Straw, as well as a host of other Labour politicians, Whitehall mandarins, diplomats and intelligence officials.

The Mail on Sunday understands that Chilcot’s million-word report on the conflict is ‘largely finished’.

In These Very Moments, The Protocols Are Being Rewritten

For many years my detractors have pointed at the following quote as evidence of my anti Jewish sentiments:

"American Jewry makes any debate on whether the ‘Protocols of the Elders of Zion’ are an authentic document or a forgery irrelevant. American Jews do control the world."

Both Zionists as well as anti Zionist Zionists cling to this quote as evidence that my ideas are ‘anti Semitic’. As if Jewish power and dominance is a product of my sick imagination.

In the article on antisemitism that was published back in December 2003 I presented an extensive list of Zionist Jews in Bush Administration. I also pointed out that “in Clinton's administration the situation was even worse. Even though the Jews only make up 1.9 per cent of the country's population, an astounding 56 per cent of Clinton's appointees were Jews.” I tried to warn Jews that their excessive power is dangerous for our universe as well as Jewry.

Social housing tenants banned from using garden in Tower Bridge luxury development

Under the initial planning agreement approved in 2011, residents from an adjoining affordable housing block being built as part of the scheme would be given access to the same communal areas as those private residents purchasing property on the open market, according to London SE1.

Now Berkeley Homes, the developers behind One Tower Bridge, have won Southwark Council’s backing for an amendment that blocks social residents – who will be allocated flats from next month – from using a garden which sits on a first floor podium between the two buildings.

Parents branded child abusers by NHS 'bullies'... simply for refusing a heel prick test on their newborn baby

It should have been the most joyous moment of their lives, one they would look back on fondly for years to come.

But for Tony Shepherd and his Polish fiancee Viola, the weeks after the birth of their baby were filled with disbelief, followed by desperation and finally outright terror – when a small act of perfectly legal defiance led the NHS to brand them child abusers.

The couple could never have imagined that their refusal to have a simple heel prick test for their son would escalate into a full-blown investigation by midwives, social workers and even the police; or that before their son Charlie was even three weeks old, he would have to endure two intimate internal examinations.

Remember Stalingrad: Russian Veterans Write Open Letter to Angela Merkel About NATO’s New War

Six Russian veterans of the Battle for Stalingrad have written an open letter to the German Chancellor Angela Merkel concerning NATO and Washington DC’s current drive to ramp-up a proxy war between The West and Russia which is cynically using the Ukraine as their 21st century battleground to gain geopolitical dominance over the Eurasian heartland.

Perhaps the biggest reservation of these veterans who survived what is arguably the largest fields of bloodshed in World War II, is the fact that the US and NATO nations are allied with Nazi political leadership in Kiev. This is a story which the western media consistently refuse to acknowledge.

Is the West about to sell out Ukraine to Vladimir Putin?

As Angela Merkel and Francois Hollande fly to Russia, they will need to carefully gauge the psychology of a man who has brought Europe to the brink of war

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As usual, the Telegraph has it totally wrong. The man who has brought Europe to the edge of war is Barack Obama, whose administration has admitted "brokering" and funding to the tune of five billion dollars the coup that ousted Ukraine's elected government of Yanukovich and installed the Poroshenko Junta, triggering chaos in Ukraine. Merkel and Hollande are talking with Putin (without consulting the White House that started this mess) because France and Germany were major battlegrounds for the first two World Wars and understandably are reluctant to allow a third on their territory.

I wonder if the Telegraph will now claim to have been shot down in a helicopter in Iraq!
