20,000 Pakistan Riot Police Unleash Tear Gas, Rubber Bullets As Protesters Breach PM’s Residence, 230 Injured (ZeroHedge, Aug 30, 2014):

UPDATE: *POLICE, PROTESTERS CLASH IN ISLAMABAD; AT LEAST 230 HURT: AFP

Against the background we initialliy explained here, and the escalation we discussed here, Imran Khan’s “Pakistan Spring” has grown dramatically. The former cricketing-legend and erstwhile opposition leader’s call for people to take to the streets to demand new ‘unrigged’ elections has 1000s of protesters breaching the Prime Minister’s residence in Islamabad. Along with anti-government cleric Tahirul Qadri, Khan urged peaceful protest but, as AP reports, an estimated 20,000 police in riot gear are blocking the procession using tear gas and rubber bullets. Local hospitals report at least 100 injuries.

It’s Settled: Central Banks Trade S&P500 Futures

It’s Settled: Central Banks Trade S&P500 Futures (ZeroHedge, Aug 30, 2014):

Based on the unprecedented collapse in trading volumes of cash products over the past 6 years, one thing has become clear: retail, and increasingly, institutional investors and traders are gone, probably for ever and certainly until the Fed’s market-distorting central planning ends. However, one entity appears to have taken the place of conventional equity traders: central banks.

Courtesy of an observation by Nanex’s Eric Hunsader, we now know, with certainty and beyond merely speculation by tinfoil fringe blogs, that central banks around the world trade (and by “trade” we mean buy) S&P 500 futures such as the E-mini, in both futures and option form, as well as full size, and micro versions, in addition to the well-known central bank trading in Interest Rates, TSY and FX products.

“Russia Invades Ukraine”, Strategic NATO Public Relations Stunt. Where are the Russian Tanks? (Global Research, Aug 29, 2014):

The media is spreading “fake evidence” in the week leading up to the Wales NATO Summit.

The objective is to herald Russia as the aggressor.

Galloway hospitalized after attack in London (PressTV, Aug 30, 2014):

British lawmaker George Galloway has been taken to hospital after being attacked in London.

Galloway was attacked by a pro-Israeli man in the western part of the city on Friday.

The MP was posing for a picture with some of his fans in Golborne Road, in Notting Hill neighborhood, when the attack took place.

Galloway’s spokesman said the attack appeared to be “connected with his comments about Israel,” as the attacker was shouting comments about the Holocaust. He added that the British MP sustained bruises as the result of the assault and was in “a pretty bad shape.”

“George was posing for pictures with people and this guy just attacked him, leapt on him and started punching him,” the spokesman said.

Ebola Outbreak Spreads To 6th African Nation: 20 Cases In Senegal

–  Ebola Outbreak Spreads To 6th African Nation: 20 Cases In Senegal (ZeroHedge, Aug 30, 2014):

Despite border closures, flight bans, cordoning off the sick (and healthy), and rubber (and live) bullets and tear gas on ‘protesters’; the world’s worst outbreak of Ebola just keeps spreading, now to a sixth African nation. Just day after Congo (5th nation) reported cases of Ebola, as The BBC reports, Senegal’s health minister confirmed the first case of Ebola in his nation yesterday and Bloomberg confirms 20 more people are “under surveillance.” Meanwhile, in Guinea a Red Cross official said riots had broken out in the nation’s 2nd largest city over rumors that health workers had infected people with the virus; and Nigerians are protesting plans to build isolation units in some local clinics. “contained”

This Is How ISIS Is Building An Airforce

This Is How ISIS Is Building An Airforce (ZeroHedge, Aug 30, 2014):

 The Islamic State is nothing if not ambitious. Despite no record of current ‘airplane’ assets in their annual reports, ISIS has begun detaining and forcing Syrian pilots to train militant fighters to fly stolen aircraft. According to CNN Arabic, the pilots (and their planes and helicopters) were abducted when the terrorist group gained control of Tabqa military base. It appears that if beheadings, executions, and whippings are not enough to strike fear into the hearts of the locals, then (just as America is tryiung to do), an air assault will greatly demoralize. We can only imagine how this changes Obama’s strategy (and just where are all the rest of Syria and Iraq’s airplanes stored?)

Venezuelan Government Announces Mandatory Biometric Cards To Control Supermarket Shoppers

Venezuelan government announces mandatory biometric cards to control supermarket shoppers (Natural News, Aug 28, 2014):

Venezuela’s continuing experiment with Marxist socialism continues to be an abject failure — as much as every other country’s experimentation with Marxist socialism — as evidenced by the country’s shrinking productivity, tanking economy and shortages of basic goods.

So bad have things gotten in the South American nation that its leader, President Nicolas Maduro, has announced that every citizen will soon be required to carry a “biometric card” that limits food purchases through the use of electronic scanners and government databases.

As reported by Britain’s The Guardian newspaper:

Government To Regulate Groundwater For 1st Time As California Drought Becomes ‘Race To The Bottom’

Government To Regulate Groundwater For 1st Time As California Drought Becomes “Race To The Bottom” (ZeroHedge, Aug 30, 2014):

The ongoing disaster that is the drought in the West is leaving wells dry across California – which account for up to 60% of water usage. As WSJ reports, as groundwater levels plunge (100 feet or more lower than norm), wells are being driven further and further into the earth (500 feet in some cases) forcing the state legislature is considering regulating underground water for the first time. “We can’t continue to pump groundwater at the rates we are and expect it to continue in the future,” warns one engineer, adding “What’s scary is we’re not fixing anything… It’s a race to the bottom.”

“Everybody was pumping to their heart’s content, until they realized the basin isn’t that big.”

 As WSJ reports, Groundwater was kind of out of sight, out of mind,” said Lester Snow, executive director of the California Water Foundation, a nonprofit policy group in Sacramento, and former director of the state Department of Water Resources. But now…

BREAKING: CDC whistleblower confesses to MMR vaccine research fraud in historic public statement

CDC-Fraud-Confirmed

BREAKING: CDC whistleblower confesses to MMR vaccine research fraud in historic public statement (Natural News, Aug 28, 2014):

BREAKING: CDC whistleblower William Thompson has now gone public with a statement posted on the website of the law firm representing him, Morgan Verkamp LLC. (See the full statement reprinted below.)

The statement opens with a blatant admission of scientific fraud at the CDC:

My name is William Thompson. I am a Senior Scientist with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, where I have worked since 1998. I regret that my coauthors and I omitted statistically significant information in our 2004 article published in the journal Pediatrics. The omitted data suggested that African American males who received the MMR vaccine before age 36 months were at increased risk for autism. Decisions were made regarding which findings to report after the data were collected, and I believe that the final study protocol was not followed.
