Israel regime's hand behind campaign to silence Press TV - Christopher Walker + Apartheid Israel used Palestinian minors as human shields, detain and torture - UN

Press TV: Communications satellite services provider Intelsat has announced the suspension of its services to the channels launched from Iran as the West's campaign against free speech intensifies.
Reuters / Ibraheem Abu MustafaIn the meantime, the French-Israeli CEO of Europe's satellite giant, Eutelsat, has written letters to several satellite companies, asking them to stop cooperating with Iranian channels. The Israeli lobby in the United States has also publicly supported European attempts to shut down Press TV.

GREEK LESSON: Never try to reason with rats on the Titanic

Rattus Hellenicus….making it easy for Troika torpedoes
The Slog: I was just on ITalkfm discussing with bright-bint radio jock Pippa Jones about today’s gold slump and global market sell-off. Pippa quite rightly pointed out that there didn’t seem to be any sense in the manipulation being tried on by the élites of various shapes and sizes across the world, as it would pauperise the consumers who are already struggling. I ended my slot by advising that when a rat is cornered, the last thing one should expect is rational behaviour.
The application of that rule to Greece at the moment supports the parallel admirably. Andrew Watt in Social Europe Journal has just posted a brilliant analysis of German austerity policies in ClubMed. This extract is suitably representative:
‘Jörg Asmussen is either an utter fool or a complete knave. And as ECB Director and before that deputy minister to a series of German finance ministers he has climbed the meritocratic pole. (By the way, he is also a member of the SPD.) It is not just that he supports contractionary fiscal policy and the weakening of labour market institutions in the teeth of an economic downturn.

Size, Scale & Speed of Debt - Max Keiser with Dr. Steve Keen +

Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss the recent visitation to the Keiser Report from a UFO with aliens on board wishing not to speak to Doughball Dave Cameron, but to discuss their concerns about the Giant Debt Ball of China which can be seen from outer space. They take an in depth look at the size, scale and speed of debt in China and at the JP Morgan Debit Card Work Farm for employees at McDonald's in Pennsylvannia. In the second half, Max talks to Dr. Steve Keen, author of Debunking Economics, about George Osborne's ponzi-like Help to Buy scheme being similar to failed government housing schemes in Australia in which Help to Sell is the true objective of the subsidies.

UK Supreme Court quashes demonstrably "irrational" "disproportionate" and "unlawful" Govt. sanctions on Iranian commercial bank.

Press TV: Britain's Supreme Court has overturned a ruling against Iran's Bank Mellat over its alleged links to Tehran's nuclear energy program.

On Wednesday, the highest British court ruled that the UK government was wrong to have imposed sanctions on the Iranian bank in 2009, and that the Treasury directive was "irrational" and "disproportionate."

10 Disturbing Tales From The Side Streets And Dark Alleys Of America + The Terrifying Future of The United States

By Michael Snyder: Every night Americans prove that they are willing to do absolutely horrible things to their fellow human beings.  Most of the time, we never even hear about the sick and twisted things that happen on the side streets and dark alleys of America.  Once in a while a particularly twisted story will get picked up by the news, but usually most Americans are pretty much able to isolate themselves from the depravity that is happening all around them.  Unfortunately, the social decay that is eating away at our society like cancer is spreading.  It is getting harder and harder for average Americans to keep the darkness at bay.  When it suddenly reaches out and touches your family, it can be absolutely shocking.  America is not the kind, loving and gentle place that is portrayed in our movies and on our television shows.  The sad truth is that America is becoming colder and meaner with each passing day.  Yes, there are definitely some Americans that are kind and compassionate, but they are in the minority.  As our economic decline becomes even more severe, the hearts of even more Americans are going to grow cold.  And people with cold hearts can do some absolutely terrible things.  The following are 10 disturbing tales from the side streets and dark alleys of America...

Want to keep up with the Kardashians? Have a radioactive baby

By Christina Consolo: Thanks to the wonders of the real-time social media age, celebrity watchers the world over have been able to enjoy every second of Kim Kardashian’s pregnancy in excruciating detail. From her obvious disdain for her pregnant body to her sudden enthusiasm for eating her own placenta to maintain her youthfulness, it’s all been put out for the world to see.
But this article isn’t as much about Kim K, as it is the blatant disregard for the health of her baby. Not only on the part of Kim and her family, but even her own now-famous obstetrician that has appeared several times on her reality show.
The amount of flying Kardashian did while pregnant has been glaringly obvious to the radiation researcher. All this flying didn’t even register as a blip with her clueless doctor as we now know, from yesterday’s episode of “Keeping up with the Kardashians: Season 8“. Instead, he just stroked her ego and managed his TV presence, while he should have been concerned with the health of her child in light of a severe stomach infection which occurred during a transatlantic flight, one of many Kim made during her much-publicized pregnancy.

Palestinians in Gaza suffer the genocidal Israeli regime

Press TV: As the apartheid Israeli regime's blockade enters its seventh year, Palestinians in Gaza see no end in sight to their never-ending plight. Over one-point-seven-million Gazans continue to suffer as genocidal Tel-Aviv maintains a tight grip on the coastal enclave, allegedly for security reasons.


Growing proof that none of them know what they’re doing….except robbing us
The Slog: Following last night’s reference to selling Lloyds Bank in the Mansion House address from the Chancellor – in which almost nobody noticed the bailin reference – The Slog has gone back into the Commons archives to look more closely at whether those in charge know what they’re doing when it comes to selling State Banks. It’s disturbing reading….and highlights a lack of agreement about what to do generally.
It is the sticky lot of the regular socio-economic commentator to try and work out – almost daily, in fact – whether those in charge of the world are pernicious, or incompetent, or both. Last night, Bright Thing George Osborne – he of Oxbridge and Westminster lineage – stood up at the Mansion House to make the traditional speech about Britain’s fiscal and economic position. Quite early on in this epic, the Draper dropped this little grenade into the mix:
“High-street banking will be ring-fenced so that taxpayers are better protected when things go wrong. We will be able to bail in creditors when a bank fails rather than turning to the public purse.”
