“What is left after war is silence: The silence of the death; the silence of the debris; the silence of the birds! After war even the screams of sadness are silent because the pain is in the very depths of the soul!”~ Mehmet Murat ildan
Justification for war has taken many paths. All those paths were tainted and immoral, and all those paths led only to death and destruction. There is never a need for war; there is only a want for war. This hard fact is very disturbing to those who have been manipulated through fear to not only support and accept war, but to embrace the very concept of national pride and aggression. This I believe exposes the major failing of man, as the killing of others is also the killing of the human soul.
War knows no bounds. It is indiscriminate in its brutality, in its scope, and in its torturous methods. It matters not who are the victims, whether men, women, children, entire families, communities, or the flora and fauna of nature. It breeds massive suffering, famine, death, and homelessness, and leaves only stark landscapes filled with the lifeless bodies of rotting flesh. It is literally the curse of mankind.
If war were waged in order to solve a legitimate local threat due to an active attack on our soil, it would be self-defense, not war, and would have to end immediately once that threat was squelched. Any force evident after the immediate threat subsided, would be nothing more than pure aggression, and therefore criminal and immoral. Considering that all U.S. wars since the inception of this country have never been due to any direct attack on the mainland, and therefore not self-defense, the entirety of U.S. war history has been one of only barbarous invasion. This is a difficult truth to accept, but until accepted by the masses, war will be unending, and intensely perilous to civilization.
The idea of war is not normally one of the people at large, unless that idea is planted in their psyche due to the trickery of the controlling class. This is normally accomplished by fomenting fear among the common citizenry due to the creation of false-flag strategies of terror meant to cause alarm. Heavy mainstream media propaganda is used to spread lies about alleged monsters from afar. The state can create an enemy simply by false claims and accusations about everything from unfair trade, non-existent weapons production, charges of human rights abuses, and a myriad of other reasons that can lead to regime change operations through aggressive measures. Natural human emotions are easy to stoke, and the general populace is often fooled into a false sense of rage that turns into acceptance of heinous acts carried out by the state.
Elite controllers and the puppet political class seek war in order to gain support in times of popular dissent or disapproval. They seek war to support the banking and corporate class for monetary gain. They seek war to gain territory, whether by actual possession or in order to take geopolitical control. They seek war to steal the natural resources of other countries, and in the process exploit the people for their own gain. And in all cases, mortal invasion by these warmongers is meant to expand empire. Currently, especially considering the U.S., this seems to be a primary factor, as the future of war appears to be in large part based on a global consolidation of power by a select group of oligarchs mainly outside the political arena, but in concert with them.
Many refer to this plot as the creation of a “New World Order,” including some of those responsible for orchestrating this coup. In fact, this seems to be the desired and planned agenda of the fascist oligarchs. Of course, this is almost always attributed by the mainstream to “conspiracy theory,” but then that gives credence to my assertion, as those who scream “conspiracy theory,” a term coined purposely by the CIA, are normally trying to eliminate or marginalize the truth tellers. Actually, the globalization of the politics of control is now in the advanced stage, so a conspiracy is already evident, and is not theory.
It is crucial to understand that war is always about money, power, and control. Without ever being directly threatened or having its mainland attacked, the United States has been at war 93% of its entire existence. How could this be possible since there has never been any legitimate reason to defend this country from aggression at home? This should be a stark reminder to the bourgeoisie who in the past were fooled into supporting state murder, to rethink their undying support for the criminal and murderous policies advanced by this nation-state called America.
There have been plenty of bad people and bad regimes, and countries that have a history of committing heinous acts of war in the past. There is any number of brutal dictators, tyrants, and evil politicians in this world, all with control over military might. But none have ever reached the level of death, destruction, and military presence as the U.S. Empire. This is not pleasant to hear, but it is the truth. With that knowledge, it is time for Americans to stop the terror and murderous wars committed by their own country, because this country is the world leader in violence. It is unethical to condemn the acts of those in other lands when one’s own acts are far more savage and deadly. Common ethics require correcting self before attempting to correct others.
Civilized society requires a peace-loving, anti-war stance. With war, no true civilization exists, as war brings about barbarity, depravity, and inhumanity toward mankind. That is the essence of a cold and heartless society, not one that embraces culture, intellect, art, compassion and enlightenment. Peace and harmony amongst people is the only way to create a civilized society, and one that will sustain and prosper throughout time.
A total of 33 people have sued the Biological Research Center, claiming bodies of their loved ones wound up in the business’ possession as a result of “false statements.” Many reportedly believed the bodies would be used for medical research, according to Phoenix TV station KTVK.
Selling body parts is illegal in most states, Gizmodo says.
“I would never give my daughter, or my son the shot… This is a massive PR event by the company that makes Gardasil, and the same is the truth for the company that makes Cervarix… I think one needs to do a lot of research, and I think parents are in the best position to do that.” – Dr. Christopher Shaw – University of British Columbia
This is a great point, and one that was further emphasized by Dr. Peter Gotzsche, co-founder of the Cochrane Collaboration, the world’s foremost body in assessing medical evidence.
“The main reason we take so many drugs is that drug companies don’t sell drugs, they sell lies about drugs. This is what makes drugs so different from anything else in life… Virtually everything we know about drugs is what the companies have chosen to tell us and our doctors… the reason patients trust their medicine is that they extrapolate the trust they have in their doctors into the medicines they prescribe.
“The patients don’t realize that, although their doctors may know a lot about diseases and human physiology and psychology, they know very, very little about drugs that’ve been carefully concocted and dressed up by the drug industry… If you don t think the system is out of control, please email me and explain why drugs are the third leading cause of death… If such a hugely lethal epidemic had been caused by a new bacterium or a virus, or even one-hundredth of it, we would have done everything we could to get it under control.” (source)
The HPV Gardasil vaccine is at the top of the list when it comes to controversial vaccines. Despite its supposed safety and necessity, new information is showing us that this may not be the case, and that its purported safety might be a result of a very heavy, and what now seems to be unethical, marketing campaign.
That being said, it’s still taboo to question vaccine safety, which is extremely confusing because there are a number of peer-reviewed publications, along with hundreds of scientists and researchers in the field, who are dedicating their lives to creating awareness about the fact that vaccines aren’t really as safe as they’re marketed to be.
“When one looks at the independent literature, so studies which are not sponsored by the vaccine manufacturers, so with relation to Gardasil there have been several reports documenting multiple sclerosis and encephalitis, which is brain inflammation, in girls who have received their Gardasil vaccine.
“So just because a study sponsored by the manufacturers does not identify problems with the vaccine does not necessarily mean that the vaccine is safe. In fact if one looks at the manufacturer studies, they’re often not designed to detect serious adverse events.” – Dr. Lucija Tomljenovic, PhD, Post-doctoral Fellow at the University of British Columbia, where she works in Neurosciences and the Department of Medicine (source)
Multiple Deaths have also been caused as a result of the HPV vaccine. Researchers from Mexico’s National Institute of Cardiology pored over 28 studies published through January 2017, containing 16 randomized trials and 12 post-marketing case series pertaining to the three human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccines currently on the market globally.
In their July 2017 peer-reviewed report, the authors, Manuel Martínez-Lavin and Luis Amezcua-Guerra, uncovered evidence of numerous adverse events, including life-threatening injuries, permanent disabilities, hospitalizations and deaths, reported after vaccination with GlaxoSmithKline’s bivalent Cervarix vaccine and Merck’s quadrivalent or nine-valent HPV vaccines (Gardasil and Gardasil 9).
You can access that study and ready more about it here.
For example, although there are many safety concern issues, aluminum has continued to be prevalent, despite the absence of any appropriate safety toxicity studies proving that it’s safe to inject this heavy metal into a fetus or young infant, let alone an adult.
A recent study found some of the highest brain aluminum content ever measured in a human being within the brains of several deceased autistic people. Another recent study found that aluminum does not exit the body when it’s injected, it actually travels from the injection site into distant organs and into the brain, where it eventually ends up staying.
Sure, our bodies do a great job of getting rid of aluminum from other sources, like water or food, but injected aluminum does not flow into the same methods of excretion. This is extremely concerning because the HPV vaccine is loaded with aluminum.
This means that 99% of vaccine injuries go unreported and the families of the vast majority of people injured by vaccines paying the price. Vaccine manufacturers cannot be held liable for injuries or deaths that occur from use of their vaccines.
And so, the pharmaceutical industry has no incentive to care about our health when it comes to making our ‘medications’ safe, since there is no punishment for them for not doing so. They can legally be careless with their product, and this is evident by the EXTREME lack of safety testing for many ‘medications’ including vaccines, especially the HPV Vaccine. (source)
This is why it’s great to see a new film coming out, attempting to bring more awareness to the topic. It’s called Sacrificial Virgins, and it investigates widespread global concerns over the safety of the controversial HPV vaccines Gardasil and Cervarix.
It recently won two awards at the Watchdog Film Festival: one was for the best film of the festival, and the other one was the Watchdog Spirit Award in recognition of its investigation “in search of truth and justice.”
It also recently won the Social Impact Award at the Queens World Film Festival.
Using Japan As An Example
In Japan, women suffering from injuries as a result of the vaccine have had hearings, with the science showing cause for concern. Their injuries have been medically validated.
After a public hearing in February 2014, the Japanese government rescinded its recommendation that girls receive the HPV vaccine. Japan has actually established guidelines and special clinics for evaluating and treating illnesses caused by the vaccine. It is a scenario that Merck, GSK, and vaccine stakeholders globally are extremely anxious to suppress. (source)
“It is a vaccine that’s been highly marketed, the benefits are over-hyped, and the dangers are underestimated.” – Dr. Chris Shaw, Professor at the University of British Columbia, in the department of Neuroscience, Ophthalmology, and Visual Sciences (Taken from the One More Girl documentary)
It’s not like there haven’t been initiatives. In January 2016, pathologist Dr. Sin Hang Lee, MD, Director of Milford Medical Laboratory, sent an open letter of complaint to the Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO), Dr. Margaret Chan.
In the letter he challenges the integrity of the GACVS Statement on the Continued Safety of HPV Vaccination (issued March 2014), and charges professional misconduct on the part of several individuals (and suggests that others may have also been actively involved) in a scheme to deliberately mislead the Japanese Expert Inquiry on Human Papillomavirus Vaccine Safety before, during and after the February 2014 public hearing mentioned above in Tokyo.
Dr. Lee challenged the integrity of the GACVS Statement on the Continued Safety of HPV Vaccination written by Dr. Pless, accusing him of deliberately misrepresenting his scientific findings in order to mislead non-scientific readers and those who set vaccination policies.
Dr. Pless is accused of deliberately conflating two unrelated articles, dealing with two different chemicals, written by different authors “apparently to create a target to attack.” Furthermore, Dr. Lee notes that the GACVS Statement relied on an unpublished 12-year old “Technical Report” written by an unofficial, unnamed “group of participants” (according to CDC’s disclaimer).
Why I believe It Makes No Sense To Take The HPV Shot
Of all the women who get an HPV infection, approximately 70 percent of those will clear that infection all by themselves in the first year. You don’t even have to detect it or treat it. Within two years, approximately 90 percent of those women will clear it all by themselves.
By three years, you will have 10 percent of that original group of women left who still have an HPV infection, and 5 percent of this 10 percent will have progressed into a pre-cancerous lesion.
So, “now you have that small group of women who have pre-cancerous lesions and now let’s look at that moving into invasive carcinoma. What we know then is that amongst women with. . . [pre-cancerous] lesions. . . it takes five years for about twenty percent of them to become invasive carcinomas. That’s a pretty slow process. It takes about thirty years for forty percent of them to become invasive cervical carcinomas.” (source)
Those comments are from Dr. Dianne Harper, one of a select few specialists in OB/GYN (in the world) who helped design and carry out the Phase II and Phase III safety and effectiveness studies to get Gardasil approved. There are only 50 HPV experts in the world, and Dr. Harper is one of them, arguably making her an expert on the subject.
Since Harper’s involvement in getting Gardasil approved, she has condemned the vaccine, stating that it is neither safe nor effective. But she’s gone back and forth, making positive comments as well.
Harper has told CBS that these vaccines are essentially useless, explaining that “the benefit to public health is nothing, there is no reduction in cervical cancers, they are just postponed, unless the protection lasts for at least 15 years, and over 70% of all sexually active females of all ages are vaccinated.”
This begs the question, why do nine-year old girls need vaccinations for symptomless venereal diseases that their immune systems kill anyway?
A brand new study recently published in the journal Pediatrics has found that many paediatricians don’t strongly recommend the HPV vaccine. Researchers used a national survey asking approximately 600 doctors to outline their stance on the HPV vaccine.
Conducted between October 2013 and January 2014, the study found that a large percentage of paediatricians and family doctors — nearly one third of those surveyed — are not strongly recommending the HPV vaccine to parents and preteens, which is why, as illustrated by the study, HPV vaccination rates continue to drop.
Dr. Genevieve Rail, Professor of Critical Studies of Health at Concordia University, recently received a grant of $270,000 from the Canadian Institute for Health Research (CIHR) to study the Human Papillomavirus (HPV). She concluded that there is absolutely no proof that the human papillomavirus directly causes cervical cancer.
“I’m sort of raising a red flag, out of respect for what I’ve found in my own study, and for the despair of parents who had totally perfect 12-year-olds who are now in their beds, too tired to go to school,” she said. “Yes, we’re going against the grain, and we are going against those who are believed, i.e. doctors and nurses and people in public health.” (source)
She feels there are “serious concerns” about the vaccine, yet no research on how young people “experience” the vaccine. (source)
I could literally write a book on the HPV vaccine. The above information is not even a tidbit of info that all parents should be made aware of.
Just Learned the Horrible, Impossible Truth About a Drug Called ‘Adrenochrome’
Someone close to me may be connected to the disappearance and murder of countless children; most of them refugees or otherwise disadvantaged – all untraceable. All forgettable. And now, all dead.
He told me about a drug called adrenochrome that could produce a high beyond any other. And unlike those other drugs, there are no ill effects. Quite the contrary; there are substantial benefits from consuming it: greater health, increased vivacity, and a host of other, smaller effects. Combine those with an intense sense of euphoria and you have a substantial demand.
The issue is this: it is a derivative of the chemicals produced by the human body when it is under intense, immeasurable fear.
My former friend, who confessed his involvement during a fleeting crisis of conscience, insisted this was true and cited a number of dubious-looking studies and fake news sites. But then there were the photos.
He didn’t allow me to make copies for fear of implicating himself personally, but he’d been to a “farm,” he called it, in one of the Baltic states. There were photos of countless people, all seemingly under the age of 15. They were naked and chained to tables and walls and floors in a windowless room the size of a football stadium. I couldn’t estimate how many there were.
As he scrolled through the photographs and I debated killing him, I saw masked men hovering over the victims and torturing them. As they were being tortured, their blood was being drained into containers.
Other photos showed the production facilities – enormous rooms that looked like chemistry labs where the blood was filtered and the compounds were extracted.
The worst, though, were the mass graves.
Men stood around them and laughed as they unloaded truckloads of carcasses into pits. They used pitchforks to gather up anyone who had been left behind.
I asked him why he was allowed to take these pictures. He said no one would believe it was happening. And he’s been right.
Rumors about facilities like this have been around for decades. Journalists have tried to report on it, only to be laughed out of their editors’ offices. One journalist, a Swede, came the closest to bringing it into the mainstream. He died, along with his family, in a hideous house fire.
Listen to me: the pictures I saw were not faked. They were not staged. They were, without any doubt, real.
And there’s one more thing. One more picture. Believe it if you want, I don’t care. I need to get this off my chest.
There was an image of adrenochrome users.
I don’t know what I expected. Well, I guess I do: strung out, gaunt, miserable-looking addicts with despair and desperation in their eyes. It’s what we’ve all associated with drug users thanks to heroin and crack and whatnot.
This was different.
The image was of a lavish conference room in a skyscraper. Where, I could not determine. Syringes of the drug were sitting on gilded plates on a thick table of polished wood.
I recognized the faces sitting around that table.
World leaders. Entertainers. Religious icons. All grinning. All happy. All ready for their injection.
Seeing those familiar faces was the initial shock. It wasn’t the final one.
On the far side of the table, almost too small to be seen but still unmistakable, was an iconic head of state. A recent one. He was laughing as he reached for his syringe, but there was something unusual about his hand. It wasn’t its normal, small, pink self. It was green.
It was webbed.
It was clawed.
It was reptilian.
Alexander: The above article was posted 1.5 years ago on Reddit. I don’t know if this specific story is true or not, but the drug mentioned does exist and it does come from tortured and sacrificed children.
It seems our reptilian overlords are doing a good job at covering this one up as being just a normal medication.
2. This is not even the worst horror heading down the road and which will happen very soon if not now. You may have heard that transfusing blood from young mice to old mice seems to help the old mice. Well it turns out the most effective procedure by far is to stitch the two animals together and unite their vascular system:
“… a small number of labs have revived parabiosis, especially in the field of ageing research. By joining the circulatory system of an old mouse to that of a young mouse, scientists have produced some remarkable results. In the heart, brain, muscles and almost every other tissue examined, the blood of young mice seems to bring new life to ageing organs, making old mice stronger, smarter and healthier.”
Trying to use only transfusions would require a stupendous amount of blood, perhaps daily transfusions, and would require perfect screening of a multitude of donors. And it still would not be as effective as joining old to a young body. It would be far more efficient and effective to thoroughly screen for one excellent donor than a multitude.
3. I’ve known about adrenachrome for a lot of years, and the harvesting techniques. Just didn’t realise it was happening on this scale…
Adrenochrome can be harvested within three minutes of someone passing away, from sudden death rather than old age. It is produced in the adrenal gland, meaning your head needs to be hacked apart in order to harvest [correction: harvesting the blood will suffice]. VERY expensive, hence world leaders being able to hit it.
First time users aren’t usually told where it came from, they are only allowed to find out AFTER trying it, otherwise it would put them off. After trying it, because it is so clean and supposed to be the very best of the best, users don’t mind how it is harvested as it was just that good.
I also heard that like DMT, artificial adrenachrome is found in EVERY plant on he planet, yet in such minuscule amounts that it is not worth or cost effective to go down this route.
This is what I have heard not seen the proof. I have also heard that it is a made up drug, usually from the type of people that can afford to use. Who are also the people who wouldn’t want people finding out.
Authorities in Mexico have found at least 166 skulls in a mass grave site in the eastern state of Veracruz.
Jorge Winckler, state attorney general, said on Thursday that investigators discovered the remains in 32 graves in the central part of Veracruz, following an August 8 tip from an unidentified person.
“Aside from human remains, we have found more than 200 items of clothing, 114 pieces of identification, as well as different accessories and personal items,” Winckler said.
He did not reveal the precise location of the burial pits, citing the safety of personnel still working at the site.
The bodies were buried there at least two years ago, Winckler said. He did not rule out finding more corpses.
Veracruz, an important trafficking route for drug gangs moving narcotics north towards the US border, has long been racked by bloody wars between drug cartels.
Some 3,600 people have gone missing in the Gulf Coast state since 2006, when Mexico deployed its army to fight the country’s powerful drug cartels, causing a record spike in violence.
More than 200,000 people have been murdered, including a record 28,702 last year.
Another 37,000 people are reported as missing.
Al Jazeera’s John Holman, reporting from Mexico’s capital, Mexico City, said the 114 identification cards were “like gold for families searching for their lost loved ones because it provides clues for their possible resting place”.
The latest mass grave site wasn’t the biggest burial pit found in Veracruz, Holman said, noting investigators found more than 250 skulls in unmarked graves in March last year.
“It comes now to the incoming administration of Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador to show the political will that’s been lacking throughout this government to try and get to grips with this problem, to try and help people to find their lost relatives and investigate this sort of mass grave,” Holman said.
Winckler called on residents whose family members have disappeared to come forward to for DNA testing in the hope shedding light on the identity of the remains.

Authorities used drones and ground-penetrating radar to locate the pits and began digging about a month ago.
They released photographs of investigators combing through the thick vegetation at the site, wearing white protective suits and gloves.
Lawlessness in Veracruz spiked under former governor Javier Duarte, who governed the Gulf coast state for President Enrique Pena Nieto’s Institutional Revolutionary Party until 2016.
Two former state police chiefs and a string of ex-officials have been charged with running hit squads that abducted and presumably killed unwanted individuals during Duarte’s administration.
Duarte himself is in jail awaiting trial on allegations of involvement with organised crime and siphoning off millions of dollars during his tenure, and prosecutors recently added charges of ordering the hit squads to “disappear” his enemies.
“These forced disappearances were not only carried out with his knowledge but under his orders,” they said in June.
Over 1.08 million animals were used for scientific “experiments” in total, and now that number is rising for the first time in supposedly three years in this state.
Over 1.08 million animals were used for scientific “experiments” in total, and now that number is rising for the first time in supposedly three years in this state.
Think that it’s not that inhumane to experiment on mice or rodents? Well, these animals being experimented upon include koalas, pound dogs, rabbits, horses, monkeys and sheep.
This is happening in the Australian state of Victoria.
The official justification is that most of these animals were “simply observed” (does that mean a control group? Probably not), but other animals suffered through horrific, violent “tests” in the name of science, as phrased by an article from the Herald Sun.
This isn’t in the name of science, it’s in the name of scientism and money.
One weird fact about this statistic is that the animals undergoing genetic modifications in particular rose tremendously, with 133,852 animals being used for 259 separate projects.
Animals used in experiments during 2016 in Victoria
Lab Mice — 398,277
Fish — 294,950
Sheep — 85,677
Guinea pigs — 3962
Pounds dogs — 2945
Lab Rabbits — 1464
Horses — 704
Pound cats — 597
Marmosets — 95
Macaques — 86
Reptiles — 52
Some animals were subject to being implanted with who knows what, for long-term monitoring. Other animals were afflicted with longterm, major physical impediments and deformities as animal experimentation always causes, and some of the animals passed away.
Please beware of the disturbing photos you are about to see. They are not necessarily of animals in Victoria, but animals being experimented on in general.
What is the Australian mainstream media saying about these animals? They’re trying to look on the bright side and support the practice, insisting that the total number of animals being killed “in the name of science” is decreasing.
“Only 6897 animals” have died in tests where death was the “proposed end point,” laments the Australian mainstream media. That’s so much better than zero animals dying in a study that basically intended for them to die.
A lot of these animals were subject to euthanasia after the tests: a whopping 79,858 were discarded and euthanized.
These numbers for just the state of Victoria alone were revealed in what they simply call annual data. The mainstream reported that it was simply the “sad cost of scientific advancement.”
People who aren’t insane can probably recognize that this isn’t “scientific advancement,” and there is no quantifiable evidence that this advanced anything for anybody, except the advanced depth of the pockets of entities funding this research.
While the original article was a little vague on whether or not these figures were for one year or in total, it wouldn’t be surprising if this was for just one year because for some reason the Australian state of Victoria is really bad about this.
“The state government records every live specimen used to help tackle numerous human diseases, products and breeding practices.”
It is believed that Australia is one of the worst countries in the world when it comes to animal experimentation. For some reason Victoria in particular is a place where a lot of “research” is done, and a lot of animals have to suffer.
Make no mistake, these animals do not suffer for some kind of vague notion of “the advancement of science,” for the betterment of mankind.
No, research grants are provided to academics, researchers, and scientists because the people with money want something to be generated from that money. Money is not given out for free, or for some vague altruistic purpose to these researchers, just as scholarships are not given to people to go to college for no reason: they want money.
Apparently a department of government in Victoria, Agriculture Victoria is supposed to ensure that all tests were approved and overseen by them, to “ensure ethical treatment.”
But if their standard of “ethical treatment” is to euthanize and discard tens of thousands of animals who may not even be that affected by what they did. Their standard of “ethical treatment” is to do things that result in permanent, strange deformations and injuries, so they have a really messed up sense of “ethics.”
To justify all this, a spokesman for the department said:
“The use of animals in research and teaching is, at this moment, an unfortunate necessity for the purposes of promoting the health of humans, animals and the environment.
Victorian legislation ensures that unnecessary animal use is not permitted and mandates the considerate and respectful treatment of research animals.”
So why would this horrific animal experimentation be performed in Australia, and not elsewhere?
Take it from population control advocate and ruthless “kill the poor”-type-person Paul Ehrlich. This is an extensive video about him worth watching on its own, but at one point in that video, he said something interesting.
Paul Ehrlich said that Australia, not America would tolerate a conversation about placing sterilization-inducing chemicals in the public water supply, sterilizing people en-mass to ensure that they don’t have any more children, only giving out antidotes to this sterilizing agent if the government deemed a family worthy of reproducing.
Unfortunately as a person who has lived in both Australia and America, I can confirm this is correct. Australia is more open to having a conversation about everybody being sterilized, forced to only reproduce if the government allows it, than America.
It’s not the people of Australia inherently, it’s a culture that exists there that really came from Britain: a culture where people are made really safe, really docile and willing to accept whatever the government does to sum it up.
Well, this is the state’s sense of ethics. Millions of animals are nothing but test subjects.
When will we have enough technology? Do we really need more “scientific advancement,” or do we need to just be at peace with the plants, animals, and people of this planet?
According to an Oxfam report, of nearly 16,500 migrants, at least a quarter of them children had passed through Ventimiglia in the nine months to April.
Children crossing the border are being sexually exploited to pay for their safe passage into France from the Italian border, a report by Save the Children Italy, pointed out.
According to the report, the minors, mostly from sub-Saharan Africa are being forced to perform sexual acts if they aren’t able to pay the drivers around US$180 to cross the border, with some children even being offered food or shelter in return for the abuse. The charity says it has evidence of many such cases since the beginning of this year.
Raffaela Milano, the director of Italy-Europe programs at Save the Children, wrote in the report, “These are very young, and particularly at-risk girls, who are among the invisible flow of unaccompanied migrant minors in transit at the northern Italian border who, in an attempt to reunite with their relatives or acquaintances in other European countries, are deprived of the opportunity to travel safely and legally.”
The report pointed out that migrant children were also being sexually exploited in other parts of Italy, including Rome and the regions of Veneto, Abruzzo, and Marche, as well as the island of Sardinia.
The report indicated that between January 2017 and March 2018, over 1,900 girls had been sexually exploited across the region out of which at least 160 were children, with the rest recently reaching the age of 18 or were pretending to be adults.
“It is unacceptable that in our country children and adolescents end up in the network of unscrupulous exploiters,” added Milano, according to the Guardian.
Save the Children report follows an Oxfam report which first reported in June that French border police illegally sent migrant children back to Italy. They were accused of detaining children as young as 12 without food or water, cutting the soles off their shoes so they did not try to attempt the journey again, and stealing Sim cards from their mobile phones.
According to the Oxfam report, of nearly 16,500 migrants, at least a quarter of them children had passed through Ventimiglia in the nine months to April.
The situation in the Italian border town of Ventimiglia was further aggravated after a makeshift camp by the Roya river was dismantled earlier in April. Since then, migrant children had been forced to live on the streets in “degrading, promiscuous and dangerous conditions,” the report pointed out.
The body of a villager who went missing several days ago was discovered inside a seven-meter-long snake. Although it’s rare for the cold-blooded predators to attack humans, she was the second victim of a giant snake in Indonesia since March last year.
Neighbors of 54-year-old Wa Tiba discovered her body intact, with her clothes on, as they cut open a bloated seven-meter-long python found near the victim’s garden on the Indonesian island of Muna, according to AP reports.
The woman went missing on June 14 after she headed to her vegetable plot, situated only a kilometer from her house. Her relatives, who looked for the farmer the next day after she had not returned home from her garden, found only her sandals and a flashlight in the garden.
After a search was launched, a giant bloated snake was discovered just 50 meters from her belongings.
“Residents were suspicious that the snake may have swallowed the victim, so they killed it, then carried it out of the garden. The snake’s belly was cut open and the body of the victim was found inside,” said a local police spokesman named Faris.
WARNING: THE FOLLOWING VIDEO IS GRAPHIC AND MAY OFFEND SENSIBILITIES
The reptiles usually attack monkeys, pigs and other mammals which are smaller than humans, grabbing them with dozens of teeth, choking them and then swallowing them whole to digest. Attacks on people are rare, although this is reported to be the second deadly python attack in Indonesia since March last year, when a 25-yer old rural man was swallowed on the island of Sulawesi.
The Patriot group of ex-military, police officers and first responders is calling for volunteers with certain skill sets to join a “search and rescue” mission near Tucson, Arizona, to hunt for suspected child sex trafficking camps.
The call comes on the heels of a report by Veterans On Patrol (VOP) that members claim to have discovered evidence indicating children are being assaulted sexually and abused, perhaps by members of Mexican drug cartels and human traffickers.
A week ago, VOP released disturbing images and video footage of a suspected camp near Tucson including what appears to be a so-called “rape tree” containing straps and restraints as well as a suspicious water or septic tank that could be used as a “shelter” or to hold victims.
In addition, VOP members discovered children’s toys and clothing as well as pornographic magazines and materials, Oath Keepers said in an announcement on the organization’s website regarding “Operation Child Shield.”
“It could have been a homeless camp, where the people were just weird or mentally ill. But there are a group of trees that look like rape trees,” said Craig “Sawman” Sawyer, a former U.S. Navy SEAL sniper and founder of Vets 4 Child Rescue, in an interview with The Hagmann Report on Monday.
“Rape trees are essentially what the drug traffickers, coyotes, tend to want to use to rape people. They tie them to it and take their undergarments and hang them up on the trees as some sort of trophy. We found in this camp a group of trees with all manner of fires hoses nailed to them and loops and different straps and different types of rope.”
Sawyer said he was one of the persons who personally inspected the site. Others who joined him said people came away “traumatized” by what they witnessed at the site, including finding kid toys, boxes of condoms, and combs containing blonde hair.
Some said there may even be graves.
Oath Keepers said that in response to the initial report the group sent “some of our most experienced Arizona LEO (law enforcement officer) leaders to the site to inspect it and interview witnesses.”
The group said that based on those interviews and the assessment of Sawyer and other former military members and EMS professionals, it was compelled to act.
Sawyer said he also noticed several bottles of brown hair dye. Those who are familiar with cartel-related human-and-sex traffickers note that the “trade” goes both ways across the border — south to north and north to south — for delivery to pedophiles in North, Central and South America.
American children who are blonde are much more easily smuggled north-to-south if their hair is darker.
Oath Keepers said members spoke with a currently-serving paramedic and former U.S. Army MP who served along the Mexican border in 2008-09. The paramedic said that what he saw in the VOP video “is entirely consistent with the rape trees he saw” during that Defense Department operation. He also recounted several instances where migrants reported being raped by their smugglers. That included children being raped in front of their parents.
In addition, some migrants reported that their children had been taken from them by the smugglers and never seen or heard from again.
As the U.S.-Saudi-led war against Yemen enters its third year, the people of this coffin-shaped nation on the Arabian peninsula find themselves struggling not only to survive but to be seen and heard by a mainstream media that is preoccupied with war in neighboring Syria, the resumption of Cold War-like tensions with Russia, and President Trump’s Twitter account and sex life.
When the international press corps does shine a light on the conflict in Yemen, it is described as a sectarian affair, a bloodless, “video-game” battle fought by nameless Iranian proxies against Saudi Arabia. But what’s really happening in the poorest country in the Middle East is a test of our humanity — a catastrophic, perfect storm of suffering and death, and the most horrific genocide you’ve likely never heard of.
Consider these stark realities:
The people of Yemen are without food, water, medicine, and fuel. According to the United Nations, more than half of Yemen’s 28 million people are facing food shortages, and international relief workers estimate that a staggering 150,000 Yemenis died from starvation last year alone. The nongovernmental organization, Save the Children, puts the number of children currently dying of starvation at 130 per day, owing largely to the Saudi blockade of Yemen’s ports.
In addition, half of the country’s health care infrastructure has been destroyed. Saudi Arabia is striking Yemen’s hospitals, which are running out of medicine and supplies to treat the wounded. All the while, these attacks have continued to receive backing from the United States and the United Kingdom since their onset on March 26, 2015.
Unimaginably, the situation could get much worse: in his administration’s final days, President Barack Obama sold the unscrupulous Saudis skin-melting white phosphorous.
The UN’s humanitarian chief, Mark Lowcock, told Al Jazeera last month:
“The situation in Yemen . . . looks like the apocalypse.”
In the weeks that follow, MintPress plans to break the lock-box on the war and humanitarian crisis that is stalking the poorest country in the Middle East, with a series of stories from our reporters on the ground. Our goal is merely this: by giving shape and form and voice to the Yemeni people who have been rendered all but invisible and mute, we hope to chronicle this epochal war, account for the despair, and explain, in painstaking detail, David’s strategy for defeating Goliath, once again.

Since 2011, more than 18,000 Syrian human beings have had their organs harvested. Men, women and children. And the mainstream media has been silent. No one is doing anything to stop it. Because it’s business: Human trafficking, Satanic ritual abuse, organ harvesting. #PureEvil.
Between Dec. 11 and 13 of the year 1981, soldiers from the the Atlacatl Battalion — a Salvadoran death squad trained at the U.S. military’s School of Americas — massacred nearly all of the residents of El Mozote, a small village whose residents were suspected Farabundo Martí National Liberation Front (FMLN) sympathizers.
Between 900 and 1,200 villagers were massacred without mercy, the majority of them women, children and the elderly.
El Salvador at the time was two years into a civil war between the FMLN— a coalition of left-wing guerrilla groups — and a vicious military government backed by Washington.
It was not until many years later that bodies began to be exhumed. For years, successive national governments that came after the bloody episode denied having any role in the massacre. But in 2012, the government of President Mauricio Funes acknowledged the state’s role and apologized to the victims’ families.
El Mozote became synonymous with the U.S. government’s support for atrocities in a brutal campaign to stave off left-wing and communist movements in Latin America and the rest of the developing world.

“Few holidays have a cinematic potential that equals Halloween’s,” wrote the American cultural critic David J. Skal. For over a century now, US film studios have exploited the commercial possibilities of All Hallows’ Eve as enthusiastically as any maker of frightening masks or baker of pumpkin pies. IMDB currently lists 200 titles featuring the word “Halloween” alone.
But it can still be hard to define a “Halloween film”. Skal takes it to be one in which the holiday is the “central subject”, rather than there merely to add atmosphere. But this still leaves open the question of genre. As it turns out, the Halloween movie is a highly elastic category. The five titles I’ve selected here show it ranges from horror to farce, and from parody to animation.
In the 1930s, the Betty Boop cartoons challenged mainstream America not only with their voluptuous heroine but with what animation scholar Paul Wells calls their “fantastical incongruities”. In this Halloween special, which lasts just over six minutes, the animators’ customary visual exuberance is given further license by Halloween’s permitted mischief. A scarecrow throws paint onto the wall and each time, creates a witch complete with broomstick. Meanwhile, a weird assembly-line in the kitchen sees bull’s horns being used to pierce pumpkins. Over it all Betty presides cheerfully, suggesting women could have roles in Halloween films besides that of the victim.
The Middle American town which is so familiar in many Halloween movies is left behind here, in what an opening caption calls a “Hallowe’en tale of Brooklyn, where anything can happen”. Ignore the plot that creaks as loudly as any haunted house’s staircase, and dwell instead on the film’s moments of tonal strangeness and blending of genres.
The main premise of this black comedy is rival serial killers who face body disposal problems at Halloween. In some scenes however, it forgoes good humour altogether and becomes genuinely disturbing. Several sequences are framed and lit as if they have been spliced in from horror cinema. Even the usually poised Cary Grant is seen in sweaty closeup.
Puritanical attitudes stalk this film as persistently as its serial killer antihero. Therapeutic models for treatment of psychopathy have no chance here against what film critic David Thomson describes as:
The certainty that the mentally disturbed are going to be dangerous until the end of time.
The plot sees three high school students brutally punished for having opportunistic sex. Laurie, their bookish and sexually inactive friend on the other hand, exemplifies what film theorist Carol Clover has called the “Final Girl.” This is a trope common in slasher films, and refers to the last woman alive to confront the killer. Laurie wards off her attacker with the gendered weaponry of knitting needle and coat hanger. But running against the film’s strait-laced politics is a mischievous humour, and a DIY aesthetic – director John Carpenter also scored the keyboard soundtrack as well as co-writing the film.
At the start of this animated musical, derived from a poem written by Tim Burton in his Disney days, Jack Skellington – master of ceremonies in “Halloween Town” – despairs of the familiar Halloween routine. He exclaims:
And I, Jack, the Pumpkin King / Have grown so tired of the same old thing.
Here the Halloween movie confronts its own possible staleness – by 1993, John Carpenter’s film alone had generated four sequels. But the danger of “the same old thing” is warded off here by fusing Halloween cinema subversively with its sentimental cousin among the seasonal sub-genres: “the Christmas film”. Jack finds a portal to “Christmas Town” and attempts to darken that festival too.
Scholars such as Rick Altman have argued that films tend to show genres colliding with each other, rather than staying separate. And just like the merging of comedy and horror in Arsenic and Old Lace, The Nightmare Before Christmas reveals this genre fusion at work in the Halloween movie itself.
Rob Zombie’s exploitation horror film begins in an “off-beat attraction” in rural Texas called Captain Spaulding’s Museum of Monsters and Madmen. The Halloween kitsch on display here includes tiny skulls with flashing red eyes, and it all serves to lull not only the quartet of young out-of-town visitors but also the unwary film spectator.
These early scenes present a commodified Halloween, one where terror is manageable, compared with the abiding horror that will soon confront the protagonists – and the viewers. The dead, who were traditionally honoured by both pagans and Christians on All Hallows’ Eve, are instead treated roughly in Zombie’s film. Bodies are fashioned into phantasmagoric, necrophile tableaus. The effect is highly disturbing: House of 1,000 Corpses ends as a new day breaks, but atmospherically we are still in darkness.
‘It is heart-breaking to see 3.2. million people severely food insecure,’ says UN food chief

The head of the UN’s World Food Program is making an urgent appeal for aid to stave off a humanitarian crisis in Congo, formerly known as Zaire, where millions are struggling with food shortages brought on by conflict.
David Beasley began a four-day mission to the country on Friday and said more than three million people face severe hunger in the south-central Greater Kasai region.
He said several hundred thousand children could die within the next few months.
“It is heartbreaking to see 3.2. million people severely food insecure, who don’t know where they will get their next meal,” Beasley told CBC News.
“And we’re talking about several hundred thousand children there that will die in the next few months if we don’t get: first funds, and then second food, and then third, access in the right locations.”
On Saturday, Beasley met with conflict-displaced families in the region, where violence erupted in August 2016 after clashes between security forces and the Kamwina Nsapu armed group.
Beasley said the violence is “something like you’d see in a horror movie.”
“I’ve never seen anything like this. We literally have 12-year-olds and 10-year-olds killing others and chopping their heads off,” he said.
“We’re asking for the government and all parties involved to bring peace so that we can save innocent children and try to bring some stability to the region.”
A regional tribal leader who had defied the government of President Joseph Kabila died during the clashes.
Officials say the number of people displaced by conflict has nearly doubled in the past six months to 1.5 million.
“Your victims had reached a position where they were cowed into submission.
“They knew that any resistance to you was futile – it would have been met by you recruiting more family members to deliver more violence.
“These offences are chilling in their mercilessness.”
The judge also compared the family’s lavish lifestyle to the debased one of their “labourers”.
Senior investigating officer from Lincolnshire Police Chief Superintendent Nikki Mayo said: “While their ‘labourers’ were suffering, this family were [buying] luxurious holidays to Barbados, Australia, Egypt and Mexico…high performance BMWs, spa days and even cosmetic surgery.
“The greatest positive of this case is that so many of the victims have now got their lives back, they’ve got a real second chance at some peace and happiness and to grow and flourish in their communities – it’s very much deserved,” Mayo said.
J. Marion Sims was a gynecologist in the 1800s who purchased Black women slaves and used them as guinea pigs for his untested surgical experiments. He repeatedly performed genital surgery on Black women WITHOUT ANESTHESIA because according to him, “Black women don’t feel pain.” Despite his inhumane tests on Black women, Sims was named “the father of modern gynecology”, and his statue currently stands right outside of the New York Academy of Medicine. #FightSupremacy
Women who managed to break free from the clutches of Islamic State terrorists told RT harrowing stories of what they lived through, shedding light on the rampant violence, sex slavery and a bloodcurdling neglect for life thriving in the so-called “caliphate.”
Khadija, who came to Syria from Tunis to live in Islamic State’s (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) Syrian stronghold of Raqqa for three years, told RT that she saw plenty of cruelty and injustice, but no genuine pursuit of religion or Islamic law.
“My husband and I made a huge mistake by coming there. And I advise you not to believe those who say that ISIS is an Islamic state, which preaches Islam and Sharia and lives pursuant to the teachings of Prophet Muhammed and the Koran,” Khadija said.
The militants do not tolerate any dissent and opposition to their reign, she noted.
“Everybody, who takes a stand against them, they behead. And people don’t know when this is going to happen.”
“They are not on righteous path. This is the state of tyranny and Satan. My husband renounced them, and told me to do the same,” Khadija went on to say, adding that she and her husband escaped Raqqa running south to the town of al-Mayadeen and then to Turkey.
But before she made her escape, the young woman got to know IS’s darkest side with its ever-depreciating cost of human life, and in particular, of that of the most vulnerable, women and children.
“There was a lot of evil in the places where women live. Children were suffering from scabies, lice. When children were ill, they did not receive treatment at hospital,” Khadija said.
If women were found to be in violation of the strict code of conduct, imposed by IS, they were locked up in prison-like detention facilities by female watchers, put in charge of “women dormitories.”
“It was sickening to be there,” Khadija said, recounting stories of women in labor seeking help and receiving indifference at best. Women were routinely denied maternity care and forced to deliver babies on the spot.
One woman bled to death during labor after the dormitory’s superintendent refused to help her.
“That poor woman went to the garden, while bleeding heavily, stayed there till morning in a rainy and cold weather. Nobody paid attention to her. And in the morning her husband came, saw her body lying in the garden and passed by, without paying any attention, as nothing happened, as if [she] were a dog,” Khadija said.
In another case, a woman became crippled after her plea to be sent to hospital was rejected despite her saying that he leg was rotting.
While it appears that for a lot of women the life under IS was a living hell, it was not uncommon for the militants to have a sex slave in addition to a wife.
According to Khadija, women who are not sex slaves, are not subjected to the so-called “sex jihad.”
“You go to the city hall and get married. If you have been married and your husband got killed, you just got married to another man,” she said. The completely different story is, however, when a woman is captured and turned into a sex slave.
As a sex slave, a woman is considered to be the property of her owner, to do with as he pleases, for instance, to sell or give as a present.
“The wife and the other woman live separately. He lives with them in turns – one day with one woman, and the other day with another,” Khadija said, noting that despite their superior status lawful wives sometimes envy the Yazidi slave women.
“Many men love Yazidi girls more than their wives,” she said.
A 20-year-old, Nur Al-Khouda, originally from Tripoli, Lebanon, said her husband first joined a Salafi group where he was indoctrinated with IS ideology and left for Syria.
“He persuaded me that there’s nothing bad there and I trusted him as his wife so I arranged all the documents and I joined him in Syria,” the young woman told RT.
The slave trade is a booming market in IS, she said.
“They paid a lot of attention to women’s looks. They bought makeup to sell them for $15,000, the virgins were priced at $30,000.”
Young girls also became a mere commodity once they are in hands of jihadists, she added, recounting that the militants planned to sell a 10-year-old girl for some $10,000.
It was reported the girls as young as 8 are sold at such slave markets. Some 3,000 to 5,000 Yazidi women are believed to be held captive by IS as sex slaves.
