NATO Helped Pentagon Lie for Special Ops After They Killed Pregnant Women

NATO Helped Pentagon Lie for Special Ops After They Killed Pregnant Women:

On February 12, 2010, U.S. troops conducted a night raid on a compound in Afghanistan’s Paktia province against suspected Taliban insurgents, killing seven civilians — including two pregnant women. They then not only attempted to cover it up, but concocted a horrific story to feed mainstream media in an apparent attempt to avoid being held accountable.

“It has the earmarks of a traditional honor killing,” an unidentified “senior U.S. military official” told CNN shortly afterward, claiming special operations forces discovered three women “hidden in an adjacent room” of the building, bound, gagged, and shot to death, as they were securing the compound after killing the insurgents. NATO also claimed in a press release at the time that international forces had made the “gruesome discovery.”

Iraq

At Least 4,164 People, Including Americans, Killed in Iraq in May:

During May, at least 4,164 people were killed and 2,396 were wounded in Iraq. These figures should be considered very low estimates. Heavy fighting at the Fallujah and Mosul frontlines prevents independent verification of any reports, but we do know there is heaving fighting going on. In April, 4,609 were killed and 1,772 were injured.

At least 652 civilians were killed, and 1,852 were wounded. Security personnel lost 290 members, while 438 more were wounded. At least 3,218 militants were also killed, and 106 more were wounded, according to media reports.

Also killed in Iraq during May were two American service members, one Australian contractor, and an Australian N.G.O. worker. Several U.S. service members were wounded.

Forbes Slashes Theranos Founder Elizabeth Holmes’ Net Worth From $4.5 Billion To Zero:

It was just a matter of time: shortly after none other than “youngest ever billionaire” Elizabeth Holmes herself admitted that the technology of her “innovative” company Theranos had been effectively a fraud, when several weeks ago the company voided and restated years of test results, the valuation of the company has finally been adjusted to reflect the underlying value of the company. And Holmes’ own net worth. As Forbes reports today, after Elizabeth Holmes topped the Forbes list of America’s Richest Self-Made Women with a net worth of $4.5 billion, today, the magazine lowered its estimate of her net worth  to nothing.

Merkel to miss vote as Turkey pressures Germany not to recognize Armenian genocide:

German Chancellor Angela Merkel will miss a vote on whether to label the killings of around 1.5 million Armenians by Ottoman Turks during the First World War as genocide. The German parliament is set to weigh in on the resolution on Thursday.

At the moment, this vote is due in the morning or at lunchtime and as things stand the chancellor will not take part in the vote in the German Bundestag because she has public appointments,” spokeswoman Christiane Wirtz said on Wednesday, as cited by Reuters.

American Serfdom – Companies Are Offering Loans for Living Expenses to Their Destitute Employees

American Serfdom – Companies Are Offering Loans for Living Expenses to Their Destitute Employees:

Bernanke and the Federal Reserve are nothing but criminal butlers for the oligarchy. The proof is undeniable at this point. While this unaccountable banking cartel promised us that 0% rates would help the economy, America’s growing underclasses are paying 100% rates for loans to buy sofas and pay for food, more than five years into this so-called “recovery. Meanwhile, the only segment of society with access to low interest rates are the very wealthy financial oligarchs who leverage this cheap money to speculate on financial assets and real estate. So yes, the Fed (Central Banking in general) is completely to blame for the world’s growing inequality, as are their submissive, compliant defenders in academia, “journalism” and within the halls of power in Washington D.C.

From the post: Another Tale from the Oligarch Recovery – How a $1,500 Sofa Costs $4,150 When You’re Poor

There is no recovery. The only thing we’ve experienced over the past eight years of Obama is a historic plundering and strip mining of the U.S. economy by a handful of oligarchs and their political and bureaucratic minions.

GM, Ford US Auto Sales Tumble In “Bellwether” Month Of May

GM, Ford US Auto Sales Tumble In “Bellwether” Month Of May:

You can’t say we weren’t warned. As reported over a month ago, before the surprising rebound in April retail sales, the biggest drag on consumer spending was auto sales.  One month later, this is finally starting to materialize when earlier today, both GM and Ford’s US vehicle sales fell more than analysts had estimated in May. According to Bloomberg this “raises questions about stalling consumer demand.” Not really: as we also warned a month ago when looking at stalling use car price changes, it was only a matter of time before the lack of demand for every low priced autos spilled over to new car sales, which it now has.

Construction Spending Collapses – Worst April Since 2009

Construction Spending Collapses – Worst April Since 2009:

Following a hope-strewn bounce in February and March, US Construction Spending plunged 1.8% in April (massively worse than the expected 0.6% rise). This is the biggest monthly drop since January 2011 as while religious construction surged 9.6%, Commercial, Healthcare, and Education construction all plunged with Communications and highway building collapsing 7.7% and 6.5% respectively. We ares ure wether will be blamed but the 1.5% drop in residential construction is rather notable for an April – it is the weakest April since 2009.

US Manufacturing Weakest Since 2009: “No Comfort For Those Looking For A Rebound”

US Manufacturing Weakest Since 2009: “No Comfort For Those Looking For A Rebound”:

Following China’s drop, Japan’s plunge, and Brazil’s crash, US Manufacturing PMI slipped once again to 50.7 – its weakest since September 2009 amid ” subdued client demand and heightened economic uncertainty.” New orders bounce is over as it fell to its weakest since Dec 2015 and worse still input costs are surging to 9 month highs as employment suggest payrolls will remain under pressure. ISM Manufacturing data improved marginally – leaving 50% of the last 10 months in contraction and 50% in expansion. The improvement seesm based on a rise in prices paid and customer inventories – hardly a positive sustainable trend. As Markit concludes, “for those looking for a rebound in the economy after the lacklustre start to the year, the deteriorating trend in manufacturing is not going to provide any comfort.”

Greece To Manufacture Kalashnikovs For Russia… On One Condition

Greece To Manufacture Kalashnikovs For Russia… On One Condition:

Amid rising social unrest as yet another bailout is negotiated to pass-through Greek government hands to the banks, this week brought some potentially good news for the Greek economy. Following Tsipras and Putin’s meetings this week, ekathimerini.com reports that Defense Minister Panos Kammenos unveiled a new partnership with Russia to manufacture Kalashnikov rifles “ending the prospect of Greece’s defense industry shutting down.” There’s just one small condition for this growth-enhancing, job-creating program to begin – Europe must end its embargo with Russia (and break with its Washington vassal status).

Jewish extremist held over attack that killed toddler released after 10 months in detention

Jewish extremist held over attack that killed toddler released after 10 months in detention:

Israeli police have released a Jewish extremist that was held in administrative detention for almost 10 months on suspicion of playing a leading role in a terrorist group targeting Palestinians.

Far-right activist Meir Ettinger was released without being charged on Wednesday, although he is still under heavy restrictions, local media reported.

He was initially taken into custody in August of last year for allegedly taking part in an arson attack in the West Bank that killed an 18-month-old boy when he and his parents were burnt alive.

Several extremists were arrested at the time, two of which were eventually charged with the arson.

Israel’s internal security agency, the Shin Bet, didn’t elaborate on the reason for Ettinger’s release.
