‘Congressional Republicans quietly closed a year-long investigation into Flint, Michigan’s crisis over lead in its drinking water, faulting both state officials and the Environmental Protection Agency for contamination that has affected nearly 100,000 residents.

In letters to fellow Republicans, the chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee said Friday that Michigan and federal officials were slow in detecting high levels of lead in the water and did not act fast enough once the problem was discovered.

The committee findings offer no new information and essentially summarize what emerged during several high-profile hearings earlier this year.’

Readers who have been following the crisis in Aleppo have seen media reports of videos and photos allegedly originating from innocent children victims, pleading against the advance of the Assad forces. And while there have been various accusations that these clips, like the infamous “chemical attack” YouTube clip from 2013, were staged, such reports were promptly slammed by the mainstream media as “fake news” and roundly ignored. However, if one ever needed a reason to be skeptical of claims, photographs, and/or videos coming out of the region, and the MSM’s appeals to readers emotions based on fabricated facts, Egyptian authorities have just provided it.

Egyptian police arrested five people in Port Said, Egypt for making staged “wounded children” photos, which they were planning to use to misrepresent on social media as photos of destruction and injured people in Syria’s Aleppo, the Egyptian Interior Ministry said on Monday. The group also made fake videos that purport to show the wreckage of air strikes in Aleppo.

The shooting team, which included the photographer’s assistants and parents of the children, was detained in the Egypt’s province of Port Said,” the Ministry said on Facebook.

Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) have been at the center of a heated debate since their introduction in the United States in 1994. Today, the controversial foods represent 70-80 percent of American’s food products.

Despite the concern surrounding the safety of GMO foods, the public is regularly informed that the products are safe to consume. Politicians, scientists, and the media are the general public’s beacons for information and news.

Just yesterday homebuilders raged hard about how awesome everything was – sending their optimism index to its highest since the previous peak in 2005. It seems they are all talk and no action as November’s data for housing starts and permits collapsed (following the trajectory of mortgage apps).

Housing Starts crashed 18.7% MoM – near the biggest monthly plunge since the crisis peak in 2005.

With the city of Aleppo now fully liberated, it is important for the alternative media to catch these lies and the Western media’s retrospective admissions to telling them, in order to maintain momentum in favor of the Syrian people as they attempt to restore security and order across their nation. “

Wall Street, war-profiteers, neocons infesting the Obama administration, the CIA under John Brennan, NSA head admiral Michael Rogers, and other pro-Hillary forces are going all-out to assure no change in US geopolitics – along with wanting Trump denied the presidency. 

They notably want adversarial relations with Russia maintained, heading for war between the world’s leading nuclear powers if not stopped.

For them, the notion of Trump wanting normalized ties, including cooperating with Vladimir Putin in combating terrorism, is anathema – to be quashed by whatever means necessary, a no-holds-barred assault for the status quo.

Throughout months of campaigning, the media played the lead role in denigrating Trump relentlessly, serving as press agents for Hillary, turning journalism into political advocacy.

They play the same role in longstanding vilification of Russia – not because of its policies, solely because of its sovereign independence and Putin’s outspoken anti-imperial, anti-war advocacy.

The fever pitch of things today is unprecedented in memory, McCarthyism on steroids, along with a plot afoot to deny Trump his electoral triumph, things on a fast track toward full-blown tyranny.

The neocon, CIA-connected Washington Post long ago fell from grace, today making the National Enquirer look respectable by comparison.

With so much vitriol flying in every direction these days about fake news, Russian propaganda, misinfo and disinfo, it’s crucial to acknowledge and understand the fact that there is a definitive science to distorting reality and manufacturing public consent.

‘The suspension of a military operation in Raqqa by a United States-led international coalition was designed to help militants relocate to Palmyra, said Sabbah Zanganeh, former Iranian envoy to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation.

According to the diplomat, it raises the question of how large groups of Daesh militants managed to move from Iraqi Mosul to the area of Palmyra. Zanganeh suggested that the suspension of a Kurdish and US-led operation in Syrian Raqqa also played in the hands of the terrorists.’

The scapegoating of Russia is now so widespread, Dirty Wars author and investigative journalist Jeremy Scahill took to The Intercept to call the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) on its bluff.

In the article, “Obama Must Declassify Evidence Of Russian Hacking,” Scahill and Jon Schwartz called out U.S. intelligence agencies for their record of deceit, asserting that the American people are not going to simply “take their word for it.”

U.S. intelligence agencies have repeatedly demonstrated that they regularly both lie and get things horribly wrong,” the article argues. But when it comes to the CIA’s case against Russia’s alleged interference with the latest U.S. presidential elections, it’s impossible to claim the hearsay is based on facts if evidence is not made available to support the agency’s claims.

Nevertheless, Scahill and Schwartz argue, it’s possible that Russia may have pulled some strings. But even if the Kremlin had its reasons and acted on them, America is the country with the long history of election meddling — not Russia.

‘It happens more often than you can imagine, but more doctors are finally getting caught in the act of misrepresenting their oath and fraudulently diagnosing healthy patients with cancer to turn a quick buck from kickbacks on chemotherapy poisons.

Why shouldn’t Doctors lie when the entire cancer industry is one gigantic fabrication from start to finish?

Is it any wonder that cancer societies worldwide put a far greater financial initiative on chemotherapy and radiation research than disease prevention techniques? Preventing disease doesn’t make money, but treating disease certainly does.’

‘The United States, despite often advertising itself as the world’s “most developed” nation, has a major problem with homelessness, with approximately 3.5 million currently living with no place to call home. Even though vacant houses outnumber the nation’s homeless by more than five to one, most of them end up sleeping in public places or out in the street.

In cities around the country, the homeless are frequently criminalized as are those who offer them food and other forms of human kindness.

Despite the widespread maltreatment of the homeless, judges in San Francisco have been dismissing thousands upon thousands of arrest warrants targeting the homeless because “it was the right thing to do.”’
