Monsanto Guilty Verdict Is Only Beginning

by F. William Engdahl, New Eastern Outlook:

A jury trial in California has resulted in a guilty verdict against the agrichemical and GMO giant, Monsanto, now Bayer/Monsanto. The judge has ordered Monsanto to pay damages of USD 289 Million to former school groundskeeper Dewayne Johnson, who has non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. His lawyer argued it was caused by Monsanto’s glyphosate-based weed-killer Roundup. Not surprisingly Monsanto plans to appeal the verdict. The impact of the ruling, regardless the outcome of the appeal, will unleash worldwide consequences that spell huge problems for the entire GMO agrochemicals business model.

The Johnson trial, Dewayne Johnson v. Monsanto Co., CGC-16-550128, in California Superior Court in San Francisco,is the first of more than 5,000 such cases across the United States awaiting trial for claims that Roundup ingredients cause cancer.

Finally! Trump Revokes John Brennan’s Security Clearance – What About Hillary & Her Minions?

by Tim Brown, Freedom OutPost:

The announcement included the fact that the administration is not only revoking Brennan’s security clearance, but also looking at doing the same to James Clapper, James Comey, Susan Rice, Lisa Page, Bruce Ohr, and others.

On Wednesday, the White House announced it had revoked security clearance for Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah’s former CIA Director John Brennan.

The announcement was made by White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, who read a statement from President Donald Trump.

Claiming that he has a constitutional responsibility to protect classified information, Sanders announced the revoking of Brennan’s security clearance during a late-scheduled press briefing.

by Dave Hodges, The Common Sense Show:

It was just announced that over 300 Catholic priests have been accused of pedophilia with Catholic children. Unfortunately, this is nothing new and it is just the tip of the iceberg.

Hi Ho the Dar

Globalist insider, Queen Beatrix, according to four eyewitnesses who have consistently stated that when they were  children they were forced to attend human child sex and subsequent hunting parties. At these events, children were raped, with several being murdered as well as the sexual body parts dismemberment.

Why Are ATMs Disappearing at an Alarming Rate after a Wave of Branch Closures?

by Wolf Richter, Wolf Street:

Banks are curtailing “cash services.” But why?

In Australia, banks are reducing ATMs by about 8% a year. In the UK, ATMs — or cashpoint machines, as they’re termed locally — are disappearing at a rate of around 300 per month, leaving consumers in rural areas struggling to access cash, according to a new report by the consumers’ association, Which? The rate of closures has increased sixfold in the period from November 2017 to April this year from a steady pace of 50 per month since 2015.

Economic war on Iran is war on Eurasia integration

by Pepe Escobar, Asia Times:

Hysteria reigned supreme after the first round of US sanctions were reinstated against Iran over the past week. War scenarios abound, and yet the key aspect of the economic war unleashed by the Trump administration has been overlooked: Iran is a major piece in a much larger chessboard.

The US sanctions offensive, launched after Washington’s unilateral pullout from the Iran nuclear deal, should be interpreted as an advance gambit in the New Great Game at whose center lies China’s New Silk Road – arguably the most important infrastructure project of the 21st century — and overall Eurasia integration.

5 Signs That Global Financial Markets Are Entering A Bear Market, And 11 Ways That You Can Get Prepared For The Chaos That Is Coming…

by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:

We haven’t seen carnage like this in the global financial marketplace in quite some time.  On Wednesday, U.S. stocks were down some, but things were much, much worse around the rest of the world.  Global banking stocks are plunging, emerging market stocks are cratering, and emerging market currencies continue their stunning decline.  This represents a dramatic change from the relative stability that we have seen throughout most of 2018.  It is almost as if someone flipped a switch once the month of August began, and the shakiness of global financial markets has many investors wondering what trouble fall will bring.  What we are witnessing right now is not a full-blown panic yet, but it definitely has the potential to turn into one.

How Monsanto Plants Stories, Suppresses Science & Silences Dissent to Sell a Cancer-Linked Chemical

by Amy Goodman, Democracy Now:

AMY GOODMAN: This is Democracy Now!Democracynow.org, The War and Peace Report. I’m Amy Goodman. We are looking at Friday’s historic verdict in a lawsuit against U.S. agribusiness giant Monsanto. In a groundbreaking decision, a jury in California ordered Monsanto to pay $289 million in damages to a school groundskeeper who developed cancer after regularly using the weed killer Roundup on the school lawns. The 46-year-old man, Dewayne Lee Johnson, has non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Doctors say he is unlikely to live past 2020. Johnson’s was the first lawsuit to go to trial alleging glyphosate causes cancer.

‘Too Big to Fail’: Russia-gate One Year After VIPS Showed a Leak, Not a Hack

by Patrick Lawrence, Consortium News:

One year later, the VIPS memo contending that the DNC emails were leaked and not hacked has yet to be successfully challenged. Meanwhile, the country sinks deeper into the morass of the new McCarthyism, comments Patrick Lawrence.

A year has passed since highly credentialed intelligence professionals produced the first hard evidence that allegations of mail theft and other crimes attributed to Russia rested on purposeful falsification and subterfuge. The initial reaction to these revelations—a firestorm of frantic denial—augured ill, and the time since has fulfilled one’s worst expectations. One year later we live within an institutionalized proscription of proven reality. Our discourse consists of a series of fence posts and taboos. By any detached measure, this lands us in deep, serious trouble. The sprawl of what we call “Russia-gate” now brings our republic and its institutions to a moment of great peril—the gravest since the McCarthy years and possibly since the Civil War. No, I do not consider this hyperbole.

New Evidence Points to Clinton Operatives Colluding with Russians To Frame Trump Campaign

from True Pundit:

A Judiciary Committee letter to the Justice Department said multiple documents prove “that Department of Justice official Bruce Ohr continued to pass along allegations from Mr. Steele to the FBI after the FBI suspended its formal relationship with Mr. Steele for unauthorized contact with the media, and demonstrating that Mr. Ohr otherwise funneled allegations from Fusion GPS and Mr. Steele to the FBI,” The Washington Times reported.

Amid these revelations, the website Real Clear Investigations sought to connect the dots by suggesting that the evidence indicates a highly controversial meeting in Trump Tower in June 2016 between Trump campaign staff and a Russian lawyer “may have been a setup.”

Why Confronting Israel Is Important

by Philip Giraldi, The Unz Review:

I am often asked why I have this “thing” about Israel, with friends suggesting that I would be much more respected as a pundit if I were to instead concentrate on national security and political corruption. The problem with that formulation is that the so-called “special relationship” with Israel is itself the result of terrible national security and foreign policy choices that is sustained by pervasive political and media corruption, so any honest attempt to examine the one inevitably leads to the other. Most talking heads in the media avoid that dilemma by choosing to completely ignore the dark side of Israel.
