- Scientist Who Discovered GMOs Cause Tumors in Rats Wins Landmark Defamation Lawsuit in Paris
Was French Prof. Gilles-Eric Séralini correct when he discovered that scientific feeding experiments past 90 days with GMO food and rats can cause serious health problems including tumors?
The answer to that question has been debated ever since the initial publication of his study, culminating in a republication of the study in another peer-reviewed journal that wasn’t nearly as well covered as the initial retraction was by the mainstream media.
Now, Prof. Séralini is in the news again – this time for winning a major court victory in a libel trial that represents the second court victory for Séralini and his team in less than a month.
On November 25, the High Court in Paris indicted Marc Fallous, the former chairman of France’s Biomolecular Engineering Commission, for “forgery” and the “use of forgery.” The details of the case have not been officially released.
But according to this article from the Séralini website, Fallous used or copied the signature of a scientist whose name was used, without his agreement, to argue that Séralini and his co-workers were wrong in their studies on Monsanto products, including GM corn.
A sentencing for Fallous is expected in June 2016.
Second Court Victory Reached
This was the second such court victory for the professor’s team, following a November 6 victory in a defamation lawsuit over an article in the French Marianne magazine which categorized the Séralini team research as “scientific fraud (you can read more about the case here).”
What few people realize about the original Séralini study on GMOs is that it was only retracted after a serious PR offensive from Monsanto and the Biotech industry, one that included the creation of a whole new position on the original Food and Toxicology journal: Associate Editor for Biotechnology.
The new position was actually filled by a former Monsanto employee who helped convince the journal’s author to retract the study.
Now more than 2 years later, these are the facts: Séralini and his team’s original study has been republished in a different peer-reviewed journal, Environmental Sciences Europe; they have won two key lawsuits against those who have attempted to ruin their reputations; and a recent peer-reviewed letter even asserted that Séralini and his team may have been right after all on their discovery showing tumors in lab rats fed GMOs.
In other words, the jury is still out on GMO safety to say the very least, just as countless independent scientists have warned, and Séralini’s study stands as yet another cause for concern with the ongoing GMO experiment. It also shows the lengths that the Biotech industry will go to in order to discredit any independent science that clashes with their own version of science.

Tracking & Controlling Humans
- FBI to start tracking animal cruelty in 2016
The FBI will begin tracking cases of animal cruelty nationally in 2016, a move advocates hope will bring more attention to the crime among law enforcement agencies and underscore the link between animal abuse and other violent crimes.
Until now, animal-related crimes have been reported into a catch-all category in the FBI’s National Incident Based Reporting System. The database collects crime reports from police departments across the country.
“There was no way to find out how often it occurs, where it occurs, and whether it was on the increase,” said Mary Lou Randour, senior adviser for animal cruelty programs and training at the nonprofit Animal Welfare Institute. “Empirical data is important. It’s going to give us information about animal cruelty crime so we can plan better about intervention and prevention.”
Randour and others say tracking animal cruelty cases is especially important because research has shown that violence against animals can be an early indicator that a person will be violent toward humans, and that animal abuse often occurs alongside other crimes such as domestic violence.
- FBI plan to collect IDs from FOIA requesters is just a waste of everyone’s time
The FBI has a new electronic FOIA submission tool on its website. And guess what? It requires that you scan a copy of your government-issued ID card before asking the government to release documents to the public.
As EFF’s Dave Maass writes, you don’t have to give the government a copy of your identification card in order to file a FOIA request. And the FBI’s asking for it might be itself illegal.
If the FBI sticks to its guns on this one, there’s bound to be a lawsuit. And the lawsuit is very likely to force the FBI to stop asking people for IDs when they file FOIAs. It’s also very likely that the people at the FBI who implemented this “papers, please” feature know both of these things to be true.
So what’s the point? Why would the FBI put in place a system it knows will likely be overturned by a court?
In short, because the FBI doesn’t like the FOIA process.
Not So Hidden Messages
- Pope Francis threats: Four men arrested after alleged threat against Pontiff
Four suspected jihadists have been arrested after they were believed to have been part of a terror cell that made threats against the Pope.
The four Kosovan men, three of whom were arrested in Italy and one in Kosovo, are suspected of “condoning terrorism” and “inciting racial hatred”, according to Italian police officials.
While none of the four appeared to have been active in any specific threat, authorities said they had been active online in promoting their ideology and described them as “highly dangerous”. Among the alleged threats found online, prosecutors said the most disturbing messages were aimed at Pope Francis.
“Remember there won’t be any pope after this one. This is the last. Don’t forget what I am telling you,” chief prosecutor Tommaso Buonanno told the Associated Press.
“They were threatening the Pope, celebrating the recent attacks in Paris and threatening the former US ambassador to Kosovo,” Carmine Esposito, Brescia’s police chief, at the centre of the investigation, told Rai Tre. [Note the Disconnect between the suspicion for condoning or inciting, versus actively planning to politically change the Government at the Vatican ]
- Super Pop Rock Star Celebrity goes the pontiff: Pope Francis rocks out on new album
Pope Francis, “Wake Up!” (Believe Digital)
He’s a global pinup who fills stadiums and thrills fans. And now Pope Francis has released what is, essentially, a rock album.
He doesn’t sing, but the pontiff who has energized millions of Roman Catholics with his vision of a compassionate, socially committed church lends his voice to an album of spiritual spoken-word Euro-rock.
- Pope Francis – “Fundamentalism is a Sickness”On the plane returning from his journey to Africa today Pope Francis made his clearest remarks in condemnation of ‘fundamentalist’ Catholics.“Fundamentalism is a sickness that is in all religions,” Francis said, as reported by the National Catholic Reporter’s Vatican correspondent, Joshua McElwee, and similarly by other journalists on the plane. “We Catholics have some — and not some, many — who believe in the absolute truth and go ahead dirtying the other with calumny, with disinformation, and doing evil.”
“They do evil,” said the pope. “I say this because it is my church.”
“We have to combat it,” he said. “Religious fundamentalism is not religious, because it lacks God. It is idolatry, like the idolatry of money.”

- #SueMeSaudi: Twitter responds to Saudi Arabia threats over ISIS comparison
A growing number of people on Twitter have been telling Saudi Arabia to go pound sand, since the kingdom threatened legal action over a tweet comparing their judicial practices to those of Islamic State.
Neither the original tweet nor its author have been identified, but it purportedly called “ISIS-like” the Saudi decision to mete out a death sentence to Ashraf Fayadh, a 35-year-old Palestinian poet who has allegedly abandoned Islam. Under the form of Sharia law practiced in the kingdom, apostasy is a crime punishable by beheading. News of Fayadh’s sentencing was made public in late November by Human Rights Watch.
- Russia Bans Soros Foundation As A “Threat To National Security And Constitutional Order”
Following Russia’s official retaliation to the Turkish downing of its jet a week ago, in which Putin issued an executive order limiting employment for Turkish workers, restricting Turkish organizations, and reducing the amount of bilateral trade with Ankara, perhaps a far more notable development took place earlier today when the Russian Prosecutor General’s Office issued a statement in which it recognized George Soros’s Open Society Institute and another affiliated organization as “undesirable groups”, banning Russian citizens and organizations from participation in any of their projects.
In a statement released on Monday, prosecutors said the activities of the Open Society Institute and the Open Society Institute Assistance Foundation were a threat to the foundations of Russia’s Constitutional order and national security. They added that the Justice Ministry would be duly informed about these conclusions and would add the two groups to Russia’s list of undesirable foreign organizations.

- ‘Allah took their sanity’: Putin accuses Turkish leadership of ‘aiding terror’
Russian President Vladimir Putin lashed out at “part of the leadership in Turkey” during his annual address to the parliament, accusing Ankara of having trade ties with terrorist groups in Syria and Iraq. He also promised more sanctions for Turkey over downing of the Russian jet.
Putin said Russia still cannot comprehend why the downing of the plane happened.
“We were prepared to cooperate with Turkey on most sensitive issues and go further than their allies. Allah knows why they did it. Apparently Allah decided to punish the ruling clique in Turkey by taking their sanity,” Putin said.
- Azerbaijan Caught In Russian-Turkish Crossfire
Rising Turkish-Russian tension is putting Azerbaijan in a bind. At a time when low energy prices are squeezing the Azerbaijani economy, officials in Baku need to keep ties strong with both Turkey and Russia to help maintain relative domestic stability.
In the days after Turkish fighters shot down a Russian Su-24 jet on November 24, Turkey aggressively courted the support of Azerbaijan, Ankara’s closest Turkic cousin. Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu visited Baku, and Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu declared that Ankara would “do everything possible to free the occupied territories of Nagorno-Karabakh” – referring to Baku’s decades-long conflict with Armenia.
- State Department ‘troubled’ by Moscow’s move against Soros groups
The U.S. State Department says it is “troubled” by Russia’s decision to ban two of liberal billionaire George Soros’ pro-democracy charities and label the organizations a threat to national security.
“Today’s designation of the Open Society Foundations and the Open Society Institute Assistance Foundation as so-called ‘undesirable’ organizations will only further restrict the work of civil society in Russia for the benefit of the Russian people,” State Department spokesman Mark Toner said Monday. “This action is yet another example of the Russian Government’s growing crackdown on independent voices and a deliberate step to further isolate the Russian people from the world.”
- The IMF Confirms Yuan Inclusion In SDR Basket At 10.92% Weight, Above JPY And GBP
IMF staff earlier this month proposed that the yuan be added to the basket of currencies used to value the SDR, a reserve asset created by the institution in 1969, and today that decision is confirmed (as expected). The IMF’s Executive Board decision today means that the yuan will be included in the SDR basket from Oct. 1, 2016, effectively anointing the yuan as a major reserve currency and represents recognition that the yuan’s status is rising along with China’s place in global finance.
- Let’s cut the crap: Vladimir Putin is helping usher in the globalist New World Order (complete + Putin vs. the West at the Climate Change Summit)
On the morning the Turks downed the Russian airliner, I stumbled across this article from notorious disinformation mill Veterans Today…It is such a good example of East/West dialectic propaganda and the “Putin as Savior” con that I decided it would be a good teaching tool for helping people to get real. And given all the confusing narratives that swirl around Putin and the current world situation, I think the best approach is to focus on two fundamental, telling things…1) Putin’s cooperation in the globalists’ 9/11 operation, and
2) Putin’s promotion of the globalists’ UN as the solution to our current woes.
Lest We Forget The Purpose
- Hidden Origins of Syria’s Civil War
Exclusive: In the early months of the Syrian civil war, the West’s mainstream media presented the conflict as a simple case of good-guy protesters vs. bad-guy government, but the conflict was more complicated than that and the one-sided version only made matters worse, writes Jonathan Marshall.
By Jonathan Marshall
Since the Syrian civil war began in 2011, nearly a quarter million people have perished and fully half of the country’s inhabitants have been forced from their homes, creating the worst refugee crisis in the past quarter century. Meanwhile, the continuing advance of brutal Islamist factions — which a leading CIA officer in 2013 termed the “top current threat to U.S. national security” — makes the chances of restoring peace and human rights seem more remote than ever.
Many parties are to blame, but certainly among them are interventionists in the United States and its allies who rationalized supporting the Islamist opposition — and refusing to embrace serious peace negotiations — on the grounds that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is a uniquely evil dictator. That image of Assad grew directly out of his regime’s brutal response to civilian protests that began in early 2011, soon after the start of the Arab Spring.

The man, who has not yet been identified is now facing charges of “illegally modifying official documents,” and is accused of tampering with state property.
- United States Congress Quietly Passes Law Requiring A Passport For Domestic Travel, Is It Constitutional?
A law requiring a passport book or passport card for domestic travel goes into effect in 2016. The United States Congress passed H.R. 22 when it passed the House of Representatives on January 6, 2015, and the Senate on July 30, 2015. Currently, the bill is in the phase just prior to being signed into law by President Obama. This new law will be attached to the tax code in section 7345. The title of section 7345 is “Revocation or Denial of Passport in Case of Certain Tax Delinquencies.”
Currently, a passport is only needed for international travel. To fly within the boundaries of the United States, an air traveler needs to provide an approved form of state-issued identification. The
sets the standards for which forms of identification are approved for traveling by air in the United States. When the new passport law goes into effect in 2016, four states will potentially be impacted. The four states are Louisiana, Minnesota, New Hampshire, and New York.
The reason that these states may force domestic air travelers to get a passport is due to these states not fully complying with the Real ID Act. The TSA in these states will have the option of forcing people to show a passport in order to get on a plane originating in any of these four states. New York, New Hampshire, and Louisiana all have been given waivers and will not have to worry about a passport on January 1, 2016.
Where Gangsters Fear To Tread
- No Driver’s License, No Plates, Not Guilty
A routine traffic ticket caused a Papillion man to draw a line in the legal sand. It’s a challenge of certain licensing laws that resulted in a surprising outcome in court.
“Motorist does not have a license plate on his vehicle,” said La Vista Police Chief Bob Lausten. The driver of a car didn’t have plates or a license and he refuses to get either one.
“This is an unlawful stop, I believe,” said Ernest Kubr on the cruiser cam video.
“You don’t have license plates on your vehicle, sir,” said the officer.
“Am I required to?” asked Kubr. “It’s my property.”
Kubr surrendered his license last year and didn’t plate the car he purchased in September. “I pay all of the lawful taxes I’m obliged to pay, but a right cannot be licensed, taxed or registered.”
Kubr has been ticketed three times in three months, twice by La Vista police. “My concern is obviously somebody who is not following the laws of Nebraska,” said Chief Lausten. “We’re enforcing the law, we’re doing what we’re supposed to do and we expect the motorists to do the same.”
Evidence in Sarpy County Court showed Kubr doesn’t have car registration or a driver’s license, but Judge Robert Wester found him not guilty of both charges.
The prosecutor said it has to do with state records on Kubr’s address, listed as “in care of,” though he has a home in Papillion. “I believe we had enough evidence to show he’s a resident of Nebraska, but the judge disagreed, so based on that is what really made the difference,” said Assistant Sarpy County Attorney Casey Taylor.
Even though he’s been pulled over and issued tickets three times, Kubr has no plans to license his car or get a driver’s license. “I don’t want to be harassed anymore, I want to be left alone and exert my right to travel and use my property as long as I don’t infringe on the rights of others.”
