The Manchester bombing has been getting too much investigative reporting, revealing that the patsy and his father were established British intelligence operatives in Libya for regime change attacks against the Gaddafi government (previously highest standard of living and education in Africa). The photos of Salman Abedi on the street with a big suitcase, awaiting a ride, appear to have been blacked out and passed off as pictures of him in the stadium, since there were none...
The terrorist attack on London Bridge, with a van plowing into pedestrians, and knife-wielding men cutting their way into the crowd, is discussed here in the Telegraph UK. Look, Teresa May is mentioned at the outset, but not interviewed. Jeremy Corbyn, the Labour Party candidate for PM provides a minute and a half of official political statement. Corby was anathema, a spoiler in the media 2 weeks ago. He is ahead in opinion polls in London, and on the rise everywhere. It looks like the media is going with the flow. Teresa May can't do sincerity well at all...
Teresa May has been caught lying poorly again, about the National Health Service, which was top rated healthcare until 3 years ago, when the Tories started cutting it's budget. They have a lan to increase it's budget, by having it sell assets like hospitals, assets that make money to fund healthcare, assets that capitalists want to collect daily, instead. People take this very seriously. May is busted on plotting to sell off the healthcare system she has been gutting, and lying about it.
Oliver Stone interviews his driver, Vladimir Putin, in this clip from the new documentary. 2 minutes and 39 seconds of clarity from Vladimir Putin, who drives very steadily. Putin compares Snowden's actions to his own resignation-in-protest from the KGB.
“Snowden is not a traitor,” Putin replies. “He did not betray the interests of his country. Nor did he transfer any information to any other country which would have been pernicious to his own country or to his own people. The only thing Snowden does, he does publicly.”
How giving Barack Obama $65 million for a book deal that may not break even is a good deal for the publishing conglomerate that makes those standardized school tests that everybody hates... (It's payoff, not investment) Thanks Ray.
"Between 2010, when RTTT first took effect, and 2014 demand for tests in the U.S. grew from $1.6 to $2.5 billion. Few firms benefitted from the rise of standardized testing in the United States as much as Pearson. "
Here's more on why German Finance Minister Wolfgang Scauble wants Greece to place heavy taxes on her shipping companies, which do half of the shipping in the EU. (Germany needs him to help again.)
"The German Reeder Association announced last year that the German commercial fleet decreased for the third consecutive year down to 3,122 ships. In 2017, a total of 182 German ships were sold, 68 of them were container ships which are the backbone of German shipping. Many of them were bought by Greek shipowners."
