Human Rights Watch called on Israel Saturday to stop razing the homes of Palestinians accused of attacking Israelis, saying the practice can constitute a war crime.
House demolition by Israeli forces
"Israel should impose an immediate moratorium on its policy of demolishing the family homes of Palestinians suspected of carrying out attacks on Israelis," the New York-based group said, as the fate of three houses slated for demolition awaits a court ruling.

Note:
Don't misunderstand me folks, HRW and Amnesty are funded by money-junkies, so they're not neutral human rights' defenders, albeit they declare the truth in SOME occasions like this story.

While much of the web obsesses over Kim Karashian’s latest arse shot, another, quieter viral video was reaching millions across the globe.
Chris and Ashley

Chris Picco was a husband and expectant father when he went to sleep one night last month.  But when he woke up, his world had been ripped apart.

His wife Ashley, 24 weeks pregnant with their baby son, died unexpectedly in her sleep.  There was nothing that could be done to save her, so Chris had to stand by as doctors performed an emergency C-section in attempts to prevent their son dying too.

One is that until recently, a profit share of GDP of 6% was perceived to be a cyclical peak; no less than Warren Buffet deemed a higher level to be unsustainable. And in fact, we see an explosion of profit share from 6% to 10% of GDP in the runup to the crisis, roughly from 2003 to 2007. The “rescue the banks and financial markets” measures succeeded in bringing the profit share back to its pre-crisis levels, at the expense of workers.


Notice the inflection point in profit share is 1987, when Greenspan became Fed chairman. Correlation may not be causation, but the timing is almost exact.

Russia To Have SWIFT Alternative By May

As the West (US and its pressured allies) attempt to 'isolate' Russia more and more, the inevitable cornering further and further incentivizes Putin to develop alternatives to the status quo. 

In the pastwestern sanctioners have sabre-rattled cutting off Russian from SWIFT - the international inter-bank payment system - as a next step in squeezing the oligarchs into submission (though 'independent' SWIFT distanced itself from those calls).

Now however, as RT reports, Russia intends to have its own international inter-bank system up and running by May 2015. The Central of Russia says it needs to speed up preparations for its version of SWIFT in case of possible ”challenges” from the West. If successful, this would pose a further challenge to the USD's reign as sanction blowback reverberates once again.

In a bombshell they hoped would go unnoticed, the Mormon Church just publicly acknowledge the fact that its founder, Joseph Smith, probably had around 40 wives — and more disturbingly, at least one was only 14-years-old.
Statue: Joseph Smith, founder of the Mormon Church 
The announcement was buried in a series of essays that the church published on its website.
During the era in which plural marriage was practiced, Latter-Day Saints distinguished between sealings for time and eternity and sealings for eternity only. Sealings for time and eternity included commitments and relationships during this life, generally including the possibility of sexual relations. Eternity-only sealings indicated relationships in the next life alone.
Evidence indicates that Joseph Smith participated in both types of sealings. The exact number of women to whom he was sealed in his lifetime is unknown because the evidence is fragmentary.
In the footnotes of the paper, the author was a bit more precise:
“Careful estimates put the number between 30 and 40.”

The American TV news network CNN International will stop broadcasting in Russia from December 31, a letter of the network has revealed.
CNN is broadcast in Russia through paid Russian cable TV operators. The network’s managing company in Russia sent a letter to the operators recently, notifying them about the end of the broadcast by this year’s end.
CNN will end broadcasting in Russia

Although it is suspected that recent changes to Russia’s mass media legislation and the network’s own commercial considerations were behind the move, no official reason was stated in the letter distributed to the Russian cable operators.
Russia’s Ministry of Communication denied that it created any hurdles for the American network and insisted there was no obstacle for CNN to continue broadcasting in the country in accordance with its laws.
The Russian government passed a law on October 15 that binds all Russian media to roll back non-Russian ownership to 20 percent by the end of 2016.
According to the Russian media, the CNN’s Moscow bureau is expected to carry on despite an end to the network’s broadcast.

You just have to love the wit and precision of a political image. Pat Dollard’s title NY Post Destroys Obama With Brutal Cover, says it all. The arrogant despot was indeed STRIPPED! The belated question is why did it take so long? In order to answer the obvious, most political analysts’ will fall into the partisan trap of party politics.
Hope and change finally was seen as dictatorial haughtiness. Most voters do not believe that they are deceived by skilled liars when they cast their ballot. Yet, that is a pattern that is uninterrupted in most elections. Only the style of administrations differs, while the establishment continues to pull the strings and policies to move the consolidation of the New World Order forward.
Obama, the lame duck
That Nefarious Warrior Organism is eager to accelerate the next stage of the master plan.  Under an openly NeoCon front, John McCain’s chairmanship of a Senate Armed Services Committee will get to pressure the public into believing that their national security requires vigorous interventionism. Before you think that the Democrats differ from this same post WWII strategy, it would be best to brush up on a necessary history lesson.
