Neocons in Washington want control over Venezuela’s vast oil reserves, among the world’s largest. With full US support and encouragement, the right wing opposition which controls the National Assembly want Maduros ousted
They found that this massive zone of melted rock is a whopping 11 kilometers thick and 200 kilometers in diameter – much larger than previous estimates. They’ve since gone back to take a closer look at the internal structure of the Altiplano-Puna plateau, and have identified a kilometer-high topographical dome, with the dormant Uturuncu Volcano sitting right in the center of it. “People had known about the magma body, but it had not been quantified that well,” says one of the researchers, Jonathan Perkins. “In the new study, we were able to show a tight spatial coupling between that magma body and this big, kilometer-high dome.”
US Ambassador Samantha Power said the historic decision reflected the new policy of engagement over isolation. Diplomatic ties were restored last year but Republican-controlled Congress opposes lifting the longstanding embargo. The vote passed overwhelmingly, with the support of 191 countries.
Only Israel abstained alongside the US.
The UN General Assembly has voted to approve the resolution every year since 1992, and the US has always strongly opposed it.
From safe.org.nz“There’s controversy In Paradise. New Zealand is proud of its clean, green and pure image. However the use of 1080 poisoning as the main weapon in the war against animals regarded as ‘pests’ is controversial.A cruel and indiscriminate poison, 1080 is used to kill unwanted animals which include possums, feral cats, rabbits, rats and stoats. Its use in New Zealand has been a contentious issue since it was first employed as a pesticide in 1954. Research has shown that the use of this poison is extremely cruel, and dangerous to non-target animals.”Find out more about the extensive use of 1080 in New Zealand,

“The Republicans and Democrats who make up the foreign policy elite are laying the groundwork for a more assertive American foreign policy via a flurry of reports shaped by officials who are likely to play senior roles in a potential Clinton White House,” the Washington Post’s White House correspondent Greg Jaffe reports.One such study, published Wednesday by the Center for American Progress (CAP)—which is run by president Neera Tanden, policy director for Clinton’s presidential campaign—recommends the next administration step up its “military engagement” amid a more “proactive and long-term approach to the Middle East.”
We are actually contributors to the state of insanity which prevails around us; unless of course, we realize this and are working to do something about it.The underlying cause of this schism between how we see reality and how we see ourselves, is hundreds and possibly thousands of years of indoctrination; of deliberate programming. We have been educated to believe that we are not responsible for that which happens beyond the four walls of our home, the garden fence and the office.We’ve been told that if we respect the laws and protocols enshrined in our society, and behave like proper, respectable citizens, at the end of it all we will be able to take comfort in from the fact that we ‘did the right thing’.If we also adopt some moral ‘truth’s’ as proclaimed by the religious institutions of the prevailing status quo – then that gets another tick. And if we also seek to fulfil the requirements of the nine to five working week, diligently and unquestioningly, that will further enhance the view that we are sensible, responsible citizens. Well adapted to the road of safety and conformity.So effective has this process of indoctrination been for so many, for so long, that the idea of anything seriously interrupting the rhythm of the fixed routines that make-up the standard working-eating-sleeping week, is regarded in horror. Better to keep your head down, is the standard advice, and try to bypass whatever those who manage the ‘great out there’ are getting up to; however extreme the mess being made of our planetary home and however insane the destruction being perpetrated in the rush for wealth, power and exclusivity.
It is also likely that his October 8 promise to give $5 million to Priorities USA Action, the largest super PAC supporting Clinton’s bid, came after the last filing deadline. The most recent quarterly report was due October 15, and the monthly report for September was due October 20. Reports of individual donations in October are not yet public.Jewish donors have already waded heavily into the race, making up Clinton’s five biggest individual donors and Trump’s top two, and together funneling more than $90 million into this year’s contest.
Billionaires are throwing avalanches of money at both candidates, as usual.
No they may not understand why they were not the chosen ones
what about me falls short they ask? confidence is hard to come by but why does night turn your head and we, the I of myself obscured?
for choice is chosen before we know
perhaps as far back as secrets shared in embryo
I know you and you know me
when we shall meet this will reveal
others, others are statues lining streets
the ones who seek not love but the morsel of company
their eyes do not shine with the one star lit for me
I could be anyone keeping them warm through winters eve
for the world settles, too often, in glance at future and fear becomes
they place an advert
they wear a tight dress
they sit at the bar and survey the best
pecking order, cock-fight, roosting birds
one shall not come home…

Here is Katie McLaughlin’s complete statement to the media:“When the FBI banged on my door on July 7th, 2015, I thought it was the worst day of my life. I had no idea that the nightmare was just beginning. Like the rest of America, I was shocked by what I learned in the weeks and months to follow.“First let me say, to the victims of my ex-husband, you are never far from my thoughts and prayers. I can only imagine what you have been going through. A mother’s most basic instinct is to protect her children and this is one of the most horrific of crimes. I know the healing process is lifelong.“Finding out that your husband and the father of your children is a child predator, and knowing that his job involved him visiting schools on a regular basis is devastating.
