The number of Flat Earthers has increased exponentially with the advent of the internet. There are now record numbers of people prepared to believe almost anything.

Among all the scientific questions that have fascinated Man over the centuries, surely there is one that is beyond debate. Planet Earth is round, not flat. The Ancient Greeks first discovered this fact in at least 200BC, if not 300 years earlier. The Renaissance astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus delivered solid mathematical proof in 1543. And we’ve seen it for ourselves in numerous breath-taking images of Earth relayed from space. So how is it that a growing number of people are starting to reject as baloney the fact that our planet is a sphere? (more…)
LD: We invite our readers to speculate on coming events in the next year. Offer us your point-by-point predictions. If you wish, think big and look ahead to the year 2050 and beyond.
What will life be like for our children and grandchildren? Will it be better or worse? Will it be Utopia or Dystopia? If you had the choice, would you rather live your life again in the 1950s and 1960s when traditional moral values still meant something and most people knew the difference between good and evil? Or would you rather take your luck and live 50-100 years from now?
Brave New World? Possibly . . .

December 28, 2017. The most recent claim that Russian President Vladimir Putin is “running” Donald Trump as if the U.S. president is a Russian intelligence asset comes from former Director of National Intelligence (DNI) James Clapper. “Putin knows how to handle an asset, and that’s what he’s doing with the president,” Clapper told CNN last Monday.

An Abridged Version by Lasha Darkmoon
LD: Kevin MacDonald’s important article, complete with charts and scholarly footnotes, can be read in its entirety HERE. This abridged version of Professor MacDonald’s original 5000-word essay is followed by a short video I have added as an afterthought, together with an extended reflection of my own arising out of reading MacDonald’s brilliant exposé of the dark forces at work in the background of this human tragedy enfolding before our eyes: “The Opioid Epidemic and the Jewish Family behind it.” [LD]

While the news waves groan with stories about “America’s Opioid Epidemic” you may discern that there is little effort to actually understand what’s behind it, namely, the fact that life in the United States has become unspeakably depressing, empty, and purposeless for a large class of citizens. I mean unspeakably literally. If you want evidence of our inability to construct a coherent story about what’s happening in this country, there it is. (more…)

LD : Rabbi Sholom Rubashkin (b. 1959 in Russia), a leader of the Chabad crime syndicate, was pardoned a few days ago by President Donald Trump for his long list of truly heinous crimes. These include child labor violations, illegal drug manufacturing in secret laboratories, the rape and sexual abuse of workers at his meat processing plant in Iowa, and, finally, unprecedented levels of animal cruelty carried out by Rubaskin’s kosher slaughtermen. By pardoning this vicious Jewish psychopath, Trump not only shows where his true loyalties lie but reveals his own psychopathology. [LD] (more…)

Israeli Occupation Forces arrested 16-year-old Ahed Tamimi , a prominent Palestinian activist, in the middle of the night after reportedly beating up her parents and a sibling.
Ahed Tamimi is from the village of Nabi Sahih (pop. 600), north west of the city of Ramallah. She was taken from her home in Nabi Salih in the Occupied Palestinian Territories during a 4:00 AM raid after a video emerged of her slapping an Israeli Occupation Force (IOF) officer went viral. Israel was outraged and considered the video an insult to its military and harmful to its occupation. Later on when Ahed’s mother, Narihan Tamimi, went to a local occupation police station to inquire about her child, she was put under arrest too. (more…)
Whither Israel? Will it still be around in 10 years’ time? Will the Palestinians ever receive justice and see the restoration of their lost lands?
Rima Najjar is a Palestinian activist, researcher, and retired professor of English Literature who taught for many years at Al-Quds University in the occupied West Bank of Israel. Her paternal ancestors, who had lived for generations in the village of Lifta on the western outskirts of Jerusalem, were horrified to see the depopulation of their village in the 1948 Nakba, when the marauding Jews came marching in with their machetes and their wild eyes.

At a time when the United States is convulsed by anti-Russian hysteria and demonization of Vladimir Putin, a trove of recently declassified Cold War documents reveals the astounding extent of the lies, duplicity and double-dealing engaged in by the western powers with the collapsing Soviet Union in 1990.
