A secret marijuana grow house in a New York City building was discovered after the building caught fire and the stench of pot could be smelled down the street.
The Bronx building’s superintendent, 65-year-old Alberto Martinez, was arrested and charged with criminal possession of marijuana, the New York Daily News reported.
Martinez allegedly turned the basement of the building on Chatterton Avenue into a grow house.

The Decoy Shot
The very first shot fired in Dealey Plaza at 12:30 PM on November 22, 1963, coined the “Decoy shot” (p. 48) by Newcomb and Adams in Murder From Within, marks the beginning of the covert operation to murder Kennedy and blame it on Oswald. The true origin of the first gunshot heard in Dealey Plaza was adroitly determined by Newcomb and Adams and they deserve full recognition for that discovery. Knowledge of the Decoy shot is unknown to the general public and unrecognized by scholars and authors on the JFK assassination, but it is one of the more important breakthroughs to date, in my opinion, in accurately comprehending the sequence of events that unfolded in Dealey Plaza on November 22, 1963 (despite tremendous effort on the part of the government to conceal and obscure the facts of what really happened).
The Decoy shot was not fired from the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository as the cover story would have you believe, but rather from a revolver fired into the air from the rear seat of the Secret Service car following immediately behind the blue convertible carrying Vice President Lyndon Johnson when it turned the corner of Houston onto Elm street on that fateful day.

One person was killed and 14 injured after gunfire erupted inside a packed nightclub in Cincinnati, Ohio, just after 1 am on Sunday morning, with the shooter said to still be at large.
The motive was unclear, but Cincinnati Assistant Police Chief Paul Neudigate said on Twitter that “there are no indications this incident is terrorism related.” The shooting took place around 1 a.m. when hundreds of people were inside the Cameo Nightlife club, which the Cincinnati Police Department said has had “multiple problems” in the past.

James Shea, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Emerging Threats at NATO – now that’s a lovely title – recently gave a talk at a private club in London on the Islamic State/Daesh. Shea, as many will remember, made his name as NATO’s spokesman during the NATO war on Yugoslavia in 1999.
After his talk Shea engaged in a debate with a source I very much treasure. The source later gave me the lowdown.
According to Saudi intelligence, Daesh was invented by the US government – in Camp Bacca, near the Kuwait border, as many will remember — to essentially finish off the Shiite-majority Nouri al-Maliki government in Baghdad.
It didn’t happen this way, of course. Then, years later, in the summer of 2014, Daesh routed the Iraqi Army on its way to conquer Mosul. The Iraqi Army fled. Daesh operatives then annexed ultra-modern weapons that took US instructors from six to twelve months to train the Iraqis in and…surprise! Daesh incorporated the weapons in their arsenals in 24 hours.
In the end, Shea frankly admitted to the source that Gen David Petraeus, conductor of the much-lauded 2007 surge, had trained these Sunnis now part of Daesh in Anbar province in Iraq.

The United States knows that peaceful power from atomic energy is no dream of the future. ..To hasten the day when fear of the atom will begin to disappear from the minds of people, and the governments of the East and West, there are certain steps that can be taken now.

The island nation of Japan is ranked third in the world in terms of the number of functioning nuclear reactors on its territory.
Why would the one country to experience the destructive potential of nuclear power in wartime, the culture that gave the world ‘Godzilla,’ and has endured the meltdowns of three reactors in 2011 continue to embrace nuclear power?
As part of the Global Research News Hour’s commemoration of the sixth anniversary of the Fukushima Daichii nuclear catastrophe, we focus on the historical and political context of the disaster.
First up, we hear from Professor Peter Kuznick about the early years after the War. He explains the role of Japan in America’s postwar geostrategy, and comments on the public relations campaign that convinced the population of the Asian country to stop worrying and love nuclear power.
Later, Canadian nuclear expert Gordon Edwards returns to the program to comment on Canada’s connections with the Japanese nuclear industry and on how the Fukushima disaster should have informed Canadian nuclear policy and regulations.
Finally, we hear from celebrated Kyoto-based anti-nuclear activist Aileen Mioko Smith about the evolution of the anti-nuclear movement within Japan.
We also hear from a short video produced by Fairewinds Energy Education (fairewinds.org) outlining the fallacy of nuclear power as a strategy for fighting climate change.

‘A huge explosion has flattened at least one building on the Wirral, injuring dozens of people.
Emergency services rushed to the scene in New Ferry, where a building, believed to be a dance studio, was reduced to rubble at around 9.15pm.
It is not yet clear if anyone was inside the building at the time, but injured people were seen walking to ambulances, according to the Liverpool Echo, one with a “serious head bandage”.’

‘Washington’s Russian witch hunt is now collapsing before our eyes.
As host Patrick Henningsen revealed last Wednesday on ACR Radio, the supposedly damning information submitted by the FBI’s private ‘cyber security’ contractor Crowdstrike, of the which the entire ‘Russian Hack’ conspiracy theory hinges on – is fraudulent.
Here is a link to their primary invented piece of ‘evidence’ included in the US Intelligence Assessment.
This means that we were correct back on Nov 1st when we said the Russian Hack story was a hoax designed distract from the explosive contents on the DNC and Podesta email leaks, and also to bolster a failing Hillary Clinton campaign by discrediting Donald Trump as being somehow in league with the evil Russians.
If they keep pressing this story, it will only hurt the credibility of a Democratic Party that still refuses to admit the abject failures and corruption within of their political organization.’

“The senator from Kentucky,” said John McCain, speaking of his colleague Rand Paul, “is working for Vladimir Putin … and I do not say that lightly.”
What did Sen. Paul do to deserve being called a hireling of Vladimir Putin?
He declined to support McCain’s call for a unanimous Senate vote to bring Montenegro into NATO as the 29th member of a Cold War alliance President Trump has called “obsolete.”
Bordered by Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Serbia, Kosovo and Albania, tiny Montenegro has a population roughly that of D.C., and sits on the western coast of the most volatile peninsula in Europe.

On March 23, the GMHC, an AIDS service organization, is due to honor former President Bill Clinton, the founder of the Clinton Foundation, for his 15-year effort to battle HIV/AIDS. Speaking to Sputnik, Wall Street analyst Charles Ortel disclosed what really lay behind the charity’s HIV/AIDS initiative. Do the Clintons deserve so much praise?
On Thursday, March 23, a New York City-based non-profit AIDS service organization, the GMHC (formerly Gay Men’s Health Crisis), is due to honor Bill Clinton, the founder of the Clinton Foundation and the 42nd President of the United States for “battling the epidemic since 2002” and “saving the lives of people living with HIV/AIDS worldwide.”However, according to Charles Ortel, a Wall Street analyst who exposed financial fraud at General Electric back in 2007, “there is no evidence that can be verified that the ‘international’ charity ever lawfully provided any help to victims of HIV/AIDS anywhere.”

‘Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that he has told Russian President Vladimir Putin that Israeli forces will continue airstrikes in Syria if they deem it necessary.
“If there is feasibility from an intelligence and military standpoint – we attack and so it will continue,” Netanyahu said during a visit to China, adding that he had informed Putin of Israel’s intentions.
According to the Jerusalem Post, the Israeli PM also dismissed reports that Russia was insisting that Israel cease its military operations on Syrian territory.’

Yesterday we reported that an international group of hackers claim they have breached Apple’s iCloud user database and stolen 300 million usernames and passwords. The group has threatened to initiate a widespread factory reset on April 7th, 2017, potentially wiping out data on tens of millions of iPhones and iCloud accounts should Apple fail to pay a ransom.
But that breach by nefarious hackers, while serious, is nothing compared to what your trusted operating system provider may be doing on your personal computer.
According to a recent report, if you are a Windows 10 user then every single keystroke you have ever typed on your computer may have been logged and sent to Microsoft.

‘If you thought that your search engine history was private, think again. It’s not. Or, at least, it may not be, depending on whether or not you’re under police investigation.
According to The Free Thought Project, a court in Minnesota has recently ruled that an entire city’s search history should be made available to police, an Orwellian first as far as anyone can tell. It may well mark the beginning of the end of Internet freedom.
Cops in Edina, Minn., were granted a warrant that requires search giant Google to provide search history information and the names of everyone in the city who utilized specific search terms between Dec. 1, 2016, and Jan. 7, 2017.’
