Beware of the UN Takeover of American Water Supplies

Millions of children under five die every year due to toxic germ-infest unsafe drinking water. This means that almost four babies a minute die from a lack of water according to UN-Water’s estimations. In the 2014 World Water Report released on the eve of World Water Day, the UN said that 768 million people do not have adequate access to water, 2.5 billion do not have access to improved sanitation. Among the deprived are a significant number of people in Detroit. It would seem that the problems of the third world are being visited upon Detroit and soon the rest of the country.
Obama Refuses to Bail Out the People of Detroit Obama has taken American taxpayer funds to bail out the privately owned General Motors. Obama has helped to himself to the same pot of money and has devastated this country by bailing out key Wall Street businesses (e.g. Goldman Sachs). However, when it comes to helping 700,000 residents of Detroit, they are not worthy of an Obama bailout, even when their health and their very lives are being put in danger by severe third world economic conditions that are currently present in Detroit.
Detroit is trying to come to grips with its newly founded Chapter 9 Bankruptcy plan that includes a significant loss of pension benefits for retired city employees. However, the most devastating part of the Detroit financial crisis may not be the loss of pension benefits, it is the access to clean drinking water. Today, Detroit is a city in which nearly 50% of the residents will soon have no access to clean drinking water. Yes, that is correct, nearly half of the residents in Detroit, cannot obtain clean water and this has become a serious life crisis. Detroit Water and Sewerage Department (DWSD) announced it would send shut-off notices to customers with balances more than $150 past due or who are more than 60 days behind in their water payments. The department, has stated that nearly 50% of Detroit’s 324,000 water bills are overdue. Already, 4,500 accounts have had their water shut off by DWSD. This is looming health crisis of epic proportions!

Current Ebola Epidemic Death Count Surpasses All Previous Outbreaks Combined

Presented with little comment…
*EBOLA DEATH TOLL REACHES 1,900; CASES SURPASS 3,500, WHO SAYS *EBOLA OUTBREAK HAS MORE DEATHS THAN ALL PAST OUTBREAKS COMBINED Perhaps, when Doctors-Without-Borders and the World Health Organization start speaking in panicced terms about ‘out of control’ outbreaks, ‘global crisis’, ‘world is losing battle’, due to ‘lethally inadequate’ responses; that it’s time for the west to start getting involved (as opposed to sending humanitarian advisers to Iraq and Ukraine).

It’s official: Public opinion of Congress sinks below that of used car salesmen

September 3, 2014 Santiago, Chile
Poll after poll confirms what I’m sure you’ve already been feeling.
People are disenchanted with the existing system. They don’t trust the government, they don’t trust the banks, and they don’t trust the media.
You can hear the rumblings of grumblings, and it’s only growing louder and louder.
Lost confidence in government
If you were to ask 10 Americans if they have confidence in Congress, less than one would now say yes.
And it’s not just disgust with the legislature. It’s all of government. Confidence in President Obama is at its lowest level ever.
Supposedly those in political office are there to act on behalf of the people. That’s what a republic is all about, right?

09.03 0530 ET BREAKING NEWS: Poroshenko Agrees to Ceasefire in Ukraine Civil War

The Kremlin’s website had the following statement also:
Vladimir Putin has had a telephone conversation with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko.
An in-depth discussion of the military and humanitarian crisis in Ukraine was continued. The heads of state exchanged opinions on what needs to be done as a matter of priority to ensure a speedy end to the bloodshed in the south-east of the country.
The views of the presidents of the two countries on the possible ways out of the crisis were, to a large extent, the same.

Warning to the World: Washington and its NATO & EU Vassals are Insane – Paul Craig Roberts

Herbert E. Meyer, a nutcase who was a special assistant to the CIA director for a period during the Reagan administration, has penned an article calling for Russian President Putin’s assassination. If we have ‘ to get him out of the Kremlin feet-first with a bullet hole in the back of his head, that would be okay with us.’ As the crazed Meyer illiustrates, the insanity that Washington has released upon the world knows no restraint. Jose Manual Barroso, installed as Washington’s puppet as European Commission President, misrepresented his recent confidential telephone conversation with Russia’s President Putin by telling the media that Putin issued a threat: ‘If I want to, I can take Kiev in two weeks.’
Clearly, Putin did not issue a threat. A threat would be inconsistent with Putin’s entire unprovocative approach to the strategic threat that Washington and its NATO puppets have brought to Russia in Ukraine. Russia’s permanent representative to the EU, Vladimir Chizhov, said that if Barroso’s lie stands, Russia will make public the full recording of the conversation
Anyone familiar with the disparity between the Ukrainian and Russian militaries knows full well that it would take the Russian military 14 hours, not 14 days, to take all of Ukraine. Just remember what happened to the American and Israeli trained and equipped Georgian Army when Washington set its stupid Georgian puppets on South Ossetia. The American and Israeli trained and equipped Georgian army collapsed under Russian counterattack in 5 hours.
The lie that Washington’s puppet Barroso told was not worthy of a serious person. But where in Europe is there a serious person in power? Nowhere. The few serious people are all out of power. Consider the NATO Secretary General, Anders Rasmussen. He was a prime minister of Denmark who saw he could rise beyond Denmark by serving as Washington’s puppet. As prime minister he strongly supported Washington’s illegal invasion of Iraq, declaring that ‘we know that Saddam Hussein has weapons of mass destruction.’ Of course, the fool didn’t know any such thing, and why would it matter if Iraq did have such weapons. Many countries have weapons of mass destruction.

GEN. MCINERNEY: ‘WE HELPED BUILD ISIS’

Watch the latest video at video.foxnews.com
During an appearance on Fox News, General Thomas McInerney acknowledged that the United States ‘helped build ISIS’ as a result of the group obtaining weapons from the Benghazi consulate in Libya which was attacked by jihadists in September 2012.
Asked what he thought of the idea of arming so-called ‘moderate’ Syrian rebels after FSA militants kidnapped UN peacekeepers in the Golan Heights, McInerney said the policy had been a failure.
‘We backed I believe in some cases, some of the wrong people and not in the right part of the Free Syrian Army and that’s a little confusing to people, so I’ve always maintained….that we were backing the wrong types.’
then made reference to a Bret Baier Fox News special set to air on Friday which will, ‘show some of those weapons from Benghazi ended up in the hands of ISIS – so we helped build ISIS,’ said

Is This Why Obama Is Rushing To This Week’s NATO Summit?

As is well-known, tomorrow, September 4, a NATO summit begins in Wales to discuss and coordinate the western response to ongoing “Russian intervention” in Ukraine (not to be confused by US intervention in Ukraine meant to remove an standing, democratically-elected president), a summit for which Barack Obama has demonstrated impressive enthusiasm following his blitz tour of Europe, a continent reeling on the edge of a recessionary abyss courtesy of the “costs” Obama has imposed on Germany Russia in the aftermath of the Victoria Nuland-instituted local Kiev government.
Perhaps it has something to do with this…

In Addition To The Latest Fake Ceasefire, Here Is What Else Happened Overnight

As reported earlier, the biggest overnight news took place just around 4am Eastern when futures exploded to new ATH on headlines of a new ceasefire in Ukraine, which was promptly refuted by both Putin and the rebels, but futures don’t care and have continue raging higher, in hopes of sweeping the latest batch of ugly economic news out of Europe, this time in the form of Europe’s non-mfg PMIs, under the rug.
As RanSquawk summarizes, heading into the North American open, the bulk of the morning’s price action has been provided by news that Ukrainian President Poroshenko said that he reached an agreement with Russia’s Putin on a “permanent cease fire” in Eastern Ukraine’s Donbass region. This saw an immediate spike higher in European equities with the DAX future rallying and breaking above its 100DMA seen at 9644.50, thus extending earlier gains that stemmed from the strong performance in Asia-Pacific equities, while the e-mini S&P once again printed a fresh record high. However, these moves staged a partial reversal amid comments from Russia’s Putin that he denied that such an agreement had been reached as Russia is not a party to the Ukraine conflict. In stock specific news, Russian exposed Raiffeisen Bank outperforms Europe ( 7%) in reaction to the geopolitical developments, while Hugo Boss have underperformed throughout the session following a share placement which came in at the lower end (-5.3%).

Department of Homeland Security – A 240,000 Person Cancer on the American Soul

Regular readers will be intimately familiar with my feelings on the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Long before it became obvious to millions of people, I wrote about how the DHS was never intended to prevent terrorist attacks, rather it had always been intended to suppress the American citizenry. Over the past decade, it has become a dangerous behemoth of fascism under the guise of the fraudulent ‘war on terror.’
Going back to 2010, I wrote a piece titled: The Dangers of a Failed Presidency, in which I wrote:
There is clearly a power elite that consists of a union between big corporate and financial oligarchs and career bureaucrats in Washington D. C. These are the folks that pull the strings of all administrations. All you have to do is look at the trends that have been in place since George W Bush and continue under Obama to see what these players want. Bigger government and thus more Federal power, more wealth for the oligarchs (thank you Federal Reserve) and an erosion of the middle class, and reduction of civil liberties in the name of the 1984-like never-ending ‘war on terror.’ I believe in a war on terror of my own. A war against the terror that Washington D. C. is constantly trying to inject into your head so that you sheepishly give away all you rights and power to them. That’s my war on terror.

2nd American doctor infected – had no contact with Ebola patients: Congo reports 31 deaths from virus

September 2014 – AFRICA – Another American doctor working for the missionary group SIM has tested positive for Ebola in Liberia. He had no contact with Ebola patients, and it’s a mystery how he contracted the virus. The doctor was treating pregnant women ELWA Hospital in Monrovia, Liberia, according to SIM. But he was not treating Ebola patients in the hospital’s separate Ebola isolation facility, the group said, adding that it was unclear how he contracted the virus. ‘My heart was deeply saddened, but my faith was not shaken, when I learned another of our missionary doctors contracted Ebola,’ SIM president Bruce Johnson said in a statement. The doctor ‘immediately isolated himself’ and has since been transferred to the ELWA Ebola…

Cold War About to Turn Hot? Putin Warns Europe “I can Take Kiev in Two Weeks”; WW III Not a Good Option

People keep asking why I have a spotlight on Ukraine and not Gaza. It should be obvious. The economic impact of the Civil war in Ukraine has a huge European economic interest. Moreover, risk of further escalation involving Russia and the US looms large. The Financial Times reports Debate Heats Up in US and Europe Over Arming Kiev.
As Barack Obama departs for Europe to attend a crucial NATO summit, the US president is facing fresh pressure at home to provide weapons to Ukraine, including from senior members of his own party. European governments are also considering the wisdom of sending arms to Ukraine, with many leaders from eastern Europe eager to do more to help Kiev, while western European governments remain cautious.’I think it is very important to recognise that a military solution to this problem is not going to be forthcoming,’ Mr Obama said last week.
But even leading members of his own party have joined Republican critics to call for more assistance to Kiev. Adam Smith, the leading Democrat on the House Armed Services Committee, said at the weekend that the US should help Ukraine build ‘a more capable fighting force to resist’ Russia.

Don’t Blink, You’ll Miss Another US Attack!

US bombs have been falling on Iraq for several weeks now, and an attack is also planned against Syria. At the NATO summit in Wales this weekend it was agreed to position thousands of troops on Russia’s border to be prepared for an attack in a moment’s notice. It seems like it was only yesterday that the US conducted yet another attack on Pakistan…oh wait, it was only yesterday!But did you know that the US is also still attacking Africa on a steady basis? At the end of the day yesterday US forces conducted an attack on the what they claim are Al-Qaeda-linked Shebab militants in Somalia. These small groups have been fighting against the US-backed regime in Somalia which is enough to earn them ongoing drone strikes from Washington. The idea that a small, localized Islamist movement in a place like Somalia is a threat to the United States is hard to comprehend. Also hard to understand how there is any legal justification for the Obama administration to conduct airstrikes on Africa at all. Has Congress declared war on Somalia? Nevertheless the endless US global war continues…

CDC: ‘window is closing’ on any effort to ever contain this Ebola outbreak: running out of people to bury the bodies

September 2014 – AFRICA – Days after returning from West Africa, Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Thomas Frieden opened a press conference with a sobering admonition about the effort to contain the Ebola epidemic to West Africa: ‘the window is closing.’ In an impassioned call to action, he urged American doctors, nurses, and health care professionals to join Africa in its fight. ‘This isn’t just the countries’ problem,’ he said. ‘It’s a global problem.’ With vivid detail, Frieden painted a gruesome picture of overcrowded isolation centers in Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea, where health care workers are struggling to keep up with ‘basic care.’ He mentioned deficiencies not only in the number of doctors, nurses, and health managers available, but the protective gear needed to keep them safe. Without an immediate change in the current landscape, he said, the worst is yet to come. ‘The level of outbreak is beyond anything we’ve seen – or even imagined,’ Frieden said. At one particular 35-bed facility, Frieden described the chilling sight of more than three-dozen Ebola patients without beds, left with no other place to fight their infections but the floor. The health care workers, too, face ‘distressing’ conditions. ‘Roasting hot’ personal protective gear including robes, masks, boots, and goggles, make simply drawing an IV a near impossible task. ‘It is very difficult to move…sweats pours into goggles, [the health workers] see the enormous need but the great risk, too,’ he said.

Top NSA Whistleblower: We Need a New 9/11 Investigation Into the Destruction of the World Trade Center

The Observable Facts Were Ignored … Bill Binney is the NSA’s former senior technical director, 32-year NSA veteran widely regarded as a ‘legend’ within the agency, one of the world’s top crypto-mathematicians, who managed thousands of employees at the agency.
Binney was the original NSA whistleblower, and one of two NSA veterans whose example inspired Edward Snowden.
