A migrant gang left 12 people aged 13 to 42 injured after carrying out random attacks and hurling racist abuse in a German city, it has been reported.
Four teenagers - from Iran, Syria and Afghanistan - are said to have targeted passers-by in the Bavarian city of Amberg.
Eyewitnesses claim a man was pushed down a flight of stairs while a 17-year-old was left needing hospital treatment for a head injury.
Germany's Interior Minister Horst Seehofer said he was 'dismayed' by the events in...
Paul Whelan, an american ex marine who currently holds 4 different passports
Including an Irish one
Has been arrested for spying in Moscow.
What's going on here?
Do we supply Irish passports to foreign spies as well as israeli assassins now?
How can you possibly be a citizen of 4 different countries at the same time? How can it be known where your loyalties lie in such a case?
And should we allow people to hold Irish citizenship in parallel with other citizenships or not?
Nice start to 2019!
StratCom Apologizes For Disturbing Twitter Joke About Dropping Nukes
US Strategic Command (You know those People who can drop Nukes to kill all humanity) tweeted the Tweet below earlier this evening. 😳 The Tweet has now been deleted and an apology tweet substituted. However, this is very concerning.....#HappyNewYear pic.twitter.com/Pn1KbvcC2V

How Capitalist America Rescued the People of Evil, Socialist Afghanistan
Since feudal times the landholding system in Afghanistan had remained unchanged, with more than 75 percent of the land owned by big landlords who comprised only 3 percent of the rural population. In the mid-1960s, democratic revolutionary elements coalesced to form the People’s Democratic Party (PDP). In 1973, the king was deposed, but the government that replaced him proved to be autocratic, mismanaged, and unpopular...
Anonymous has revealed that a UK funded anti Russian disinformation spreading psyop has been operating
from "clusters" it has established all over the EU and elsewhere.
These "clusters" consist of Academics, politicians, journalists and other opinion influencers, all systematically working to present a jaundiced view of Russia through media outlets, academic works, and internet based social media, very likely with the intent to ultimately translate all this activity into political policies...
Great interview with Aimen Dean here:
How Al-Qaeda tricked the West into War on Terror, plus new Khashoggi revelations (E690)
He was a chemical weapons expert for Al Qaeda / Bin Laden
who turned british spy. He's a pretty smart cookie so you can see why he was chosen.
He also gives the low down on what actually happened to Kashoggi too, from the Saudi horse's mouth.
Catch it while it's hot.!
It's on the rather excellent RT "Going Underground" show
at 2.30pm and 9.30pm today (Sat 08th...
Where is Victoria Nuland and her bags of cookies and 50 dollars a day payouts for "active" protesters in Paris?
Where is the 5 billion in aid from the likes of NED in the US for democratic protest in France?
Where is the detailed operational support and practical guides to gritting the wheels of the state
for these French protesters from the Albert Einstein institute?
Should president Assad now back the "moderate French rebels" with covert arms, training, air support and funds?
Since yet another worthwhile thread the "RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS DAY" thread was turned into yet another
"Field maus blathering about the pope" thread with the help of the usual trolls baiting him,
I decided that this disgusting tag team verbal diarrhoea which has begun infecting so many of our threads
since his arrival, needs it's own repository where we can dump these tiresome and derailing witterings
and the trolling posts that elicit said witterings.
I exhort the mods to use this...
Dutch man, 69, who 'identifies as 20 years younger' launches legal battle to change age
Well if men can declare as women and women can declare as men then I guess why not because all bets are off at that point.
And it's true that probably the most rampant category of discrimination you will see in society is ageism. He certainly does have a point here!
Question is, is this guy for real, chancing his arm in a world of insanity, or just trollng the piss out of some high profile idiocy that...
It seems the title of the video game above which none other than Bono invested greatly in
( in whose plot, the "evil dictator" of Venezuela is targetted for regime change!)
May turn out to be strangely prophetic!
Most of us here have heard of Thierry Meyssan, renegade reporter
and thorn in the side of imperialism.
Thierry in his new book is putting forward a new explanatory hypothesis
as to what exactly is going on regarding much of the insanity we see in the world today.
The shift in...
A group of academics have been finally rumbled after they deliberately published about 20 nonsense papers to see how many they could get published
in current academic journals to highlight some ridiculous political biases and how piss poor standards have become
in some humanities "academic" research fields such as race, gender, and sexuality
Different Strokes: Porn Website To Reward People For Watching
So basically you can now earn money just for watching other humans having sex on the internet!
It was only a matter of time before someone figured out that by offering users a bitcoin based incentive to keep watching, advertising revenues could be increased. Naturally the porn industry, being ahead of the game in all things internet, is to become an early adopter.
Perhaps posters can come up with a good name for their ICO...
Scandal after scandal have rocked the Roman catholic church both here and abroad.
The latest one involving the resignation of bishops in Chile for yet another awful sex abuse scandal.
The church have been shown in Ireland and worldwide to be guilty of systematic cover up of child abuse
and the relocation of known child abusers.
Then when compensation was required for the Irish victims, the church conspired to limit it's liability
by lobbying political allies ( Take a bow Michael Woods...

‘Rodchenkov's evidence is hearsay with limited probative value’ – CAS
So essentially the court has admitted now (once it's all over and the damage is done of course) that all the demonisation of Russian athletes on media front pages that occurred implying that they were all cheating and doping relied on the testimony of a man under threat of deportation whose evidence was problematic and not credible to a court and there was no actual data or factual evidence to back his statements up...
All 34 Bishops In Chile Suddenly Resign
Over "Absolutely Deplorable" Pedophile Priest Scandal
All 34 bishops in Chile have tendered their resignations in the wake of yet another pedophile priest scandal in which high level officials covered up the institutionalized sexual abuse of minors - even threatening officials tasked with investigating sex crimes and the destruction of evidence.
Thirty-one active bishops and three who are signed a document with their offers to resign...
Lots of red faces regarding Cambridge Analyticia / SCL
the company who were freely handed for money "stole" the data of 50 million users from facebook
Apparently the MOD in the UK paid them 190,000 for psychological profiling and modelling
regarding public responses to government propaganda messaging.
They even gave them "List X" status with access to secret government documents!!
MoD granted 'List X' status to Cambridge Analytica parent company
Also, apparently the government of Kiev...
A thread to discuss the unfolding smear test scandal and the culture of secrecy in the HSE.
Vicky Phelan took a legal case against the HSE after it emerged that they had misdiagnosed her smear test and then deliberately
acted to hide knowledge of her condition from her, the ensuing several year delay basically turning a treatable condition with over 90% probability of success into a likely death sentence. She won her case and was awarded 2.5 million or so.
We only know about the extent of...
Most of us probably suspected as much over the years but the BBC has finally come clean.
MI5 vetting of journalists and broadcasters right up to 1990 proves to be factual and can no longer to be written off "conspiracy theory"
The vetting files: How the BBC kept out ‘subversives’
No doubt similar behaviour is still at play in the vetting of the smiling faces of media today,
but now when people scoff and refer to such notions as "conspiracy theory" you can ask
whether they would have...
I have been saying for many years that activists should maintain
as much independence as possible from corporate internet tools while disseminating their message
and raising funds
It is far too easy for a corporate site to make a troublesome group or writer vanish overnight and
lose all of their material, funding and their audience, as, for example, shell to sea found when their facebook account was suddenly suspended. Or as wikileaks found when paypal froze their account.
The fact is...
The recent treatment of Russia's athletes and paralympians is politically motivated
pure cold war nonsense pushed by Washington.
WADA have complete double standards as revealed by the recent leak
from the hacker group "fancy bears" :
Fancy Bears' - Sports in Canada
Fancy Bears' - Hack Team
All this Russia bashing is largely based on the unsubstantiated testimony
of a dodgy Russian defector.
Of course he's telling the truth and not just what his benefactors want to hear
Is the deep state's plan to have billionaire ex TV chat show host Oprah Winfrey.
as their next planned puppet in the white house?
It seems likely.
First the plan was Obama, the first black president
Then the next plan was Hillary, the first woman president
this plan failed because she was such an obvious crook.
Back on track, the next logical step is the first black AND woman president
who already has a huge captive audience of easily led feeble minded potential voters.
Oprah would be...
In a recent instance, 7 people in Tampa Florida were arrested for feeding the poor
7 volunteers arrested for feeding homeless people in Tampa
Another arrest of 12 people recently in a Southern California city near San Diego.
These San Diego activists were arrested for feeding homeless people in a park
According to an official press release, this was apparently to protect the poor people in need of food from an outbreak of Hepatitis A.
However, no protection from starvation was...
Richard Stallman, founder of Free software foundation
For two decades, a huge flaw (or NSA/CIA requested features?) has "existed" in each new version of intel's chips which could allow access to everything on your machine. What a shocker eh?
No wonder they call them INTEL!!
It's led to the publishing of info on two exploits called MELTDOWN and SPECTRE
Woo-yay, Meltdown CPU fixes are here. Now, Spectre flaws will haunt tech industry for years
Meltdown and Spectre: Here’s what Intel...
This article by Glenn Greenwald raises some very troubling points regarding
our foolish dependence on a few giant corporations for our free speech
and for the propagation of important news and information
Facebook Says it is Deleting Accounts at the Direction of the U.S. and Israeli Governments
Have we had enough of fake reality and lies manufactured and fed to us as "reality" by
a small number of large corporate entities controlled by vested interests such as the US government?
For years you were called a "conspiracy theorist" for pointing out the west's funding of jihadists
to achieve geopolitical ends.
Then the CIA eventually admitted funding, arming and training Bin Laden and the mujahadeen in Afghanistan, in the words of Ybignew Brzezinski, to "give the russians their very own Vietnam"
A bunch of Jihadists were given arms, training, air support from NATO and funding
to destroy Gadaffi's Libya and turn it into a failed state. (An Irish connection here too!)...
