Fatal A400M crash linked to data-wipe mistake

A military plane crash in Spain was probably caused by computer files being accidentally wiped from three of its engines, according to investigators.

Plane-maker Airbus discovered anomalies in the A400M's data logs after the crash, suggesting a software fault.

And it has now emerged that Spanish investigators suspect files needed to interpret its engine readings had been deleted by mistake.

This would have caused the affected propellers to spin too slowly.

A Rapprochement Or Just Wishful Thinking?

The current jockeying by potential candidates for the 2016 presidential elections is a perfect example of how true national interests are sacrificed for the sake of personal gains.

Iran could prove to be a powerful strategic partner to the United States, as long as its independence and regional influence are not threatened.

Will Poland Train Organization of Ukraine Militants?

Poland's Defense Ministry says it plans to train about 60 Ukrainian army instructors this year, including NCOs of OUN battalion (OUN-the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists). The training sessions would take place in Poland in June, September and October. Several other NATO members are also joining the NATO program known as the Defense Education Enhancement Program - DEEP. Its aim is to bring Ukraine's forces up to the standards of the Western alliance.

Despite G7 propaganda, it's clear Russia has better things to do than start WW3

Instead of a real G7, we have a farce. An American dominated talking shop where the US President allows 'friendly' foreign leaders to tickle his belly for a couple of days. There is no dissent. Washington's dominance goes unquestioned and everyone has a jolly time. Especially since they kicked out Russia last year - Vladimir Putin was the only guest who challenged the consensus.

"Refugee" Invasion is European Suicide

Decent video, but the best part is that it reveals that Gaddafi's demise has lead to much more suffering and death. Zionist policy blowback, again! Plus, look at the photos, these aren't "refugees," these are predominantly healthy young men. More Zionist propaganda to make Europeans feel "guilty" about the plight of an overpopulated Africa. All part of a Zionist "divide and conquer" strategy. Societies are much easier to control if they are diverse and the only cohesive group is Zionist.

Tomorrow's EU Parliament TTIP vote cancelled

The cancellation of tomorrow’s crucial vote on TTIP in the Plenary session of the European Parliament represents a small but significant victory for those of us opposed to this monster deal (in every sense of that phrase) but that’s all it was, a small victory.

Obama’s ‘G-1-plus-6?

As much as President Obama needs President Putin’s help on Syria, Iran and other global hotspots, he has fallen in line behind U.S. hardliners in seeking to ratchet up the confrontation over Ukraine and now is trying to bring the Europeans along at the G-7.

Venezuela Rejects Felipe Gonzalez Visit as Former Spanish PM Touches Down in Caracas

Former Spanish Prime Minister Felipe Gonzalez arrived in Caracas on Sunday in an alleged bid to help with the legal defence of jailed opposition leaders Leopoldo Lopez, Daniel Ceballos and Antonio Ledezma.

His controversial visit has sparked a negative backlash from the country’s institutions and citizens, who have branded it as an unacceptable interference into Venezuela’s national affairs, as well as a stunt for the international media. Venezuelans gathered in public squares across Venezuela on Sunday to publicly reject the former PM’s presence.

German Banker: Obama Is Destroying Europe

Interviewed on June 6th by German Economic News, the chief economist at Bremer Landesbank, Folker Hellmeyer, says that because of Obama’s sanctions against Russia, German exports declined year-over-year by 18% in 2014, and by 34% in the first two months of 2015 (no later figures), but he asserts that “The damage is much more comprehensive than these statistics show,” because those are only the “primary losses,” and there are in addition “secondary effects,” which get even worse over time.

Disgusting!! Anti-Russian propaganda appearing in Dutch school textbooks

The following two images were found on page 67 of the workbook, Chapter 7: countries without democracy. The first image shows Russia as the 'evil' country trying to take Ukraine, while Europe is pictured lending a 'helping' hand. One of the questions students are asked, is: "What is Russia doing, and what is Europe doing in this picture?" Well, that isn't difficult to answer: Evil-looking Russia is obviously trying to devour poor Ukraine, while friendly Europe is looking on concerned!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This reminds me of the overt commie-bashing crap that was in my grade school textbooks back in the fifties!

Why Is The EU Forcing European Nations To Adopt ‘Bail-In’ Legislation By The End Of The Summer?

Are they expecting something to happen? As you will read about below, the European Union says that any nation within the EU that does not enact “bail-in” legislation within the next two months will face legal action. The countries that are being threatened in this manner include Italy and France. If you fast forward two months from this moment, that puts us in early August. So clearly the European Union wants everything to be squared away by the end of the summer. Is there a reason for this? Are they anticipating that something really bad will happen in September or thereafter? Why such a rush?

We all remember what happened when major banks were “bailed out” during the last financial crisis. A tremendous amount of taxpayer money was given to the big banks to help prop them up so they wouldn’t fail. This greatly upset a lot of people.

White House Admits Economies Of European Allies Crippled By Russian Sanctions

Just over a year ago when the Obama administration first introduced the vague, scary-sounding, all encompassing concept of "costs" when it explained how US sanctions would cripple the Russian economy, we mocked this latest bout of amateurism by the US State Department, noting that ig anything it would instead crush Europe's dominant, and far more intertwined with the Russian economy, powers such as Germany.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So of course Obama must continue this failed policy, because he can never admit he is a failure!

Cameron trips up over Europe at G7 summit, denies U-turn

British Prime Minister David Cameron tripped up over Europe at a summit of the Group of Seven Industrial nations (G7), appearing to issue an ultimatum to his own ministers over the EU only to swiftly withdraw it, saying he had been misunderstood.

The debacle was Cameron's first serious setback since he was re-elected a month ago and was all the more awkward because it concerned his flagship policy of renegotiating Britain's EU ties before holding an in-out EU membership referendum.

His uncertain handling of such an important issue is likely to be interpreted as a sign of how nervous he is to keep his fractious Conservative Party united to avoid a re-run of past splits which helped topple his two immediate predecessors.

Back me on European Union referendum or quit: Cameron tells ministers

British Prime Minister David Cameron sought to quell fresh signs of rebellion in his Conservative Party over Europe, warning ministers they will have to back his European Union strategy or leave his government.

Speaking on the sidelines of a meeting in Germany of the Group of Seven Industrial nations (G7), Cameron, who has pledged to renegotiate Britain's EU ties before offering an in-out membership referendum, signalled he would not tolerate dissent.

Barcelona Mayor Calls for Public Banks, Basic Income Gains Momentum, True Fiscal Responsibility, and more

A longtime anti-eviction activist has just been elected mayor of Barcelona, becoming the city’s first female mayor. Ada Colau co-founded the anti-eviction group Platform for People Affected by Mortgages and was an active member of the Indignados, or 15-M Movement.

Colau has vowed to fine banks with empty homes on their books, stop evictions, expand public housing, set a minimum monthly wage of $670, force utility companies to lower prices, and slash the mayoral salary. She enjoyed support from the Podemos party, which grew out of the indignados movement that began occupying squares in Spain four years ago.

Obama: G7 Agrees Sanctions on Russia to Stay in Place

U.S. President Barack Obama says Russia's actions in Ukraine are hurting Moscow and the Russian people. He said leaders at the G7 summit agree that sanctions on Russia will remain in place as long as the Minsk cease-fire agreement is being violated.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Which is bogus since it is Kiev that has openly violated the cease fire! Obama's speech (still ongoing) also touched on FIFA! As if that was a world-changing event. Obama has stated Europe's commitment to end fossil fuel use without providing a safe and reliable alternative or explaining why the US is still trying to conquer and control the world's oil-producing regions. And of course he tossed global warming and why it is okay for him to amnesty the illegals without Congress into the mix as well!

In short, there is an obvious disconnect between what Obama is saying at the G7 and what is really going on.

US Warmongering: Will Germans Again Claim ‘They Didn’t Know’?

This weekend, the German public were similarly applauding Obama as he foisted a pile of ludicrous lies and propaganda in their midst. And yet, all the while, American war crimes and crimes against humanity were being committed unabated all around the world. Germany has an onerous responsibility in Europe to call a halt to Washington’s war machine. Are Germans once again going to tell us someday in the future: "We did not know"?

Breaking the Promise to Russia

The Russian European dreamers have included Pushkin, Lenin, Gorbachev and, until relatively recently, President Vladimir Putin. They have all seen their country’s future as part of the “European house”.

But history and events have not been kind to Russia. Napoleon’s invasion, revolution, two world wars, Stalin’s communism and, most recently, the expansion of NATO, have shattered the dream again and again.

Congratulations Tony Blair

The 21st century’s greatest war criminal is called to lead the campaign against ‘extremism’ which he himself instigated. Truth be told, it only makes sense to appoint a mass murderer to such a delicate job because only a genocidal character could be intimately familiar with the nitty gritty of institutional hatred and intolerance.

The Politics of Anti-Austerity: The Spanish Elections and Participatory Democracy

The anti-austerity movement received another shot in the arm towards the end of May, with local elections in Spain following the Greek tune set by Syriza. The notable casualties of the night were the ruling Popular Party (PP) and the socialist PSOE, necessitating the construction of previously unseen coalitions. In an even more significant way, the gauntlet is being laid down towards traditionalists insistent on following the belt tightening approach that is strangling growth and encouraging continent-wide estrangement.

Europe turning against vaccines

“Europeans are turning away from vaccines, amid rising distrust of immunization for infectious diseases,” begins an article earlier this year in EurActiv, the journal of record for the European Community, published in over a dozen languages and widely read by journalists as a go-to-source for emerging policy debates in Europe.

As evidence for its claim, the article cites the French National Institute for Prevention and Health Education, which found that “distrust of vaccination has risen from 10% in 2005 to 40% in 2010,” as well as pointing to a major conference held in Italy last year, The State of Health of Vaccination in the EU.

GREEK BANKS ON VERGE OF TOTAL COLLAPSE: BANK RUN SURGES "MASSIVELY" AS DEPOSITORS YANK €700 MILLION TODAY ALONE

While the Greek government believes it may have won the battle, if not the war with Europe, the reality is that every additional day in which Athens does not have a funding backstop, be it the ECB (or the BRIC bank), is a day which brings the local banking system to total collapse. As a reminder, Greek banks already depends on the ECB for some €80.7 billion in Emergency Liquidity Assistance which was about 60% of total deposits in the Greek financial system as of April 30. In other words, they are woefully insolvent and only the day to day generosity of the ECB prevents a roughly 40% forced "bail in" deposit haircut a la Cyprus.

US Deployment of Missiles in Europe May Lead to Russia’s Exit From INF

Russia is fully complying with commitments made under the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF) and does not want to withdraw from it, Viktor Ozerov, the Chairman of the Federation Council on Defense and Security, told RIA Novosti.
However, if the United States decides to put its missiles in Eastern Europe, Russia will seriously consider pulling out of the agreement, Ozerov said.

Earlier, AP reported that the Obama Administration plans to deploy land-based missiles in Eastern Europe that "could pre-emptively destroy the Russian weapons" in response to Moscow's alleged violation of the INF treaty.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is precisely the outcome the US government wants to see happen, if in fact they place missiles in Eastern Europe, as though Russia has no right to be upset by this move.

I would almost be willing to bet real money that it is not a question of if these US missiles are placed in Eastern Europe, but when.
