UK pilots union agrees mass layoffs/pay cuts

Trade unions at Monarch Airlines, Britain’s oldest surviving carrier, have agreed to cut 900 jobs, slash pay by up to 30 percent, and reduce the terms and conditions of the remaining workforce, including changing working patterns.

Details have yet to emerge as to the concessions the unions agreed regarding changing working patterns.

Monarch began discussions with the British Airline Pilots Association (BALPA) and Unite, the UK’s largest trade union, earlier this year after it threatened that without huge cutbacks it would not survive.

Whistleblower Releases Tapes Exposing Federal Reserve Corruption

Do you believe that the Federal Reserve is regulating big banks? Recordings released by a whistleblower show the cozy relationship between banks “too big to jail” and the private Federal Reserve that rejects accountability to Congress.

The Terrorism Narrative

When philosopher Hannah Arendt witnessed the trial of Adolf Eichmann in Jerusalem, she was struck by his ‘unthinking’ nature in the way that he went about the ordinary business of carrying out the holocaust.

He was not only following orders, he was following procedures, normal ways of acting in a complex, but deadly, organization. That ordinary people can carry out evil deeds led Professor Arendt to suggest that the “banality of evil” was a critical problem that had to be recognized as a modern condition.

Massive vaccine cover-up confirmed: Secret documents prove vaccines cause autism

The ongoing debate over whether or not vaccines cause autism would probably take on an entirely different tone if key information that has been mostly censored from the public was fully brought to light. Hidden documents that have been locked away for more than two decades reveal that the MMR vaccine for measles, mumps and rubella does cause autism, and regulators, drug executives and various others have known about this for a long time.

A Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request filed in the UK has forced the Department of Health to release confidential documents outlining the details of MMR's initial approval back in the 1980s. These documents reveal that GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), the manufacturer of the MMR vaccine Pluserix, knew that there were problems with the vaccine causing a high rate of adverse events in children. Among these were encephalitis and other conditions associated with autism.

Saudi Prince: War Against ISIS Really About Removing al-Assad

Prince Turki Al-Faisal, former Saudi Arabian ambassador to the U.S., tells CBS This Morning Anchor Norah O’Donnell, he hopes the airstrikes that include Saudi planes against ISIS are the first step in ultimately removing Syrian leader Bashar Assad and does not see any reason why they shouldn’t send in Saudi ground troops if necessary.

Why Isn’t America “As Mad As Hell” And Unwilling To “Take It Anymore”?

Howard Bloom, Yale literature professor and cultural critic, recently stated “I am 79 years old and I have never seen this country in such a bad state. It is madness. What we are seeing is the fall of the Roman Empire, only now it is the fall of America, the glory of our Empire.”

Ebola threatens to sweep across America. The United States sits on the brink of World War III. The economy is teetering on collapse. The Chinese are on the verge of owning your possessions and you and this arrangement was agreed to by people who were elected to “protect and defend the Constitution”.

ISIS Home Base: Raqqa, Syria or Washington, D.C.?

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post

While mainstream media outlets in the Western world continue to shill for the White House and NATO’s plans to destroy the Syrian state and oust its democratically elected president, one notable linchpin of propaganda involves the labeling of Raqqa province in Syria as the “home base” of ISIS...

Is Israel Trying to Force Palestinians into the Sinai?

What is Israel’s endgame in Gaza? It is a question that has been puzzling analysts and observers for some time. But indications of the future Israel and Washington may have in mind for Gaza are emerging.

Desperately overcrowded, short on basic resources like fresh water, blockaded for eight years by Israel, with its infrastructure intermittently destroyed by Israeli bombing campaigns, Gaza looks like a giant pressure cooker waiting to explode.

The Fake Terror Threat Used To Justify Bombing Syria

As the Obama Administration prepared to bomb Syria without congressional or U.N. authorization, it faced two problems. The first was the difficulty of sustaining public support for a new years-long war against ISIS, a group that clearly posed no imminent threat to the “homeland.” A second was the lack of legal justification for launching a new bombing campaign with no viable claim of self-defense or U.N. approval.

The solution to both problems was found in the wholesale concoction of a brand new terror threat that was branded “The Khorasan Group.”

Big Lies Launch Lawless Wars

Obama’s Iraq war III is lawless. It has no legal authority. It constitutes cold, calculated, premeditated naked aggression.

The same holds for his three-and-a-half year proxy war on Syria. It was planned long before March 2011 hostilities began. It’s now elevated to direct US intervention.

Extremists may face broadcast ban, social media vetting - home secretary

Powers banning extremists from appearing on TV and which allow police to vet “harmful” individuals’ social media activity would be enforced if the Conservatives return to power next year, Home Secretary Theresa May is set to announce.

The party manifesto will also pledge to introduce time-limited Extremist Disruption Orders to curb individuals’ right to speak at public events and control their social media usage. The maximum sentence could be up to 10 years in prison for breaking a banning order.

Announcing the plans at the Conservative Party Conference in Birmingham on Tuesday, May will also promise greater powers for British police to access internet data.

Police and intelligence services would accrue greater access to details of when and where phone calls and emails are sent, but not their content.

Nearly $1bn already spent on US military campaign against ISIS

The US-led military operation against the Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) militants has likely so far cost between $780 and $930 million, according to an estimate by Washington-based think tank specializing in defense issues.

The estimate is part of a report attempting to forecast how much the operation might cost in the future. It was published on Monday by the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments (CSBA), that’s influential with the US Department of Defense.

The think tank’s defense experts, many of whom are military veterans, have used a figure given by the Pentagon itself, which said that the military operations against the Islamic State cost $530 million through August 26.

'Open border' virus now leaving children paralyzed

Thousands of cases of Enterovirus D68 (EV-D68) have been seen across the country since mid-August, landing scores of children in intensive care units with acute respiratory distress. Not only is there no end in sight to this current and extremely rare outbreak (at least in this country), a disturbing new symptom is presenting itself in children who have been infected with EV-D68...paralysis.

Last week, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) announced that nine children in Colorado recently presented with polio-like symptoms, with muscle weakness and paralyzed limbs. Four of the children have tested positive for EV-D68, while health officials are still awaiting the test results for the others.
