Harvard Experiment Finds Large Effects From Small News Outlets

Even small publishers have a large effect on the national discourse, according to a new paper published in Science on the effects of news. “Exposure to the news media,” the study states, “causes Americans to take public stands on specific issues, join national policy conversations, and express themselves publicly.”

The research aims to quantify the effect of news media. Put in terms that are increasingly common when talking about journalism: What is the impact of news organizations?

The act of publishing news is influential in still-surprising and robust ways.

Chemo Costs In U.S. Driven Higher By Shift To Hospital Outpatient Facilities

The price of cancer drugs has doubled in the past decade, with the average brand-name cancer drug in the U.S. costing $10,000 for a month’s supply, up from $5,000 in 2003, according to a new report by IMS Institute for Healthcare Informatics, a health information, services and technology company.

And those are just average prices; some drugs may cost as much as $30,000 a month.

In Europe, where governments negotiate for national discounts, the list prices of cancer drugs are at least 20 to 40 percent lower than in the U.S., the report found.

Americans are also paying higher prices because more patients are being treated by oncologists whose practices have been bought by hospitals, which may charge double or more for the same treatments, the report said.

Treasure Trove of Documents Tying Russia to Uranium One

Recent pushback in Congressional testimony by Department of Justice Attorney General Jeff Sessions, as well as unnamed Justice Department officials in several news articles, stating that the case involving a highly placed FBI confidential informant in the Russian nuclear industry was not connected to the sale of the Canadian firm Uranium One in 2010, does not coincide with the trove of documents, emails and memoranda obtained by this reporter that prove otherwise.

Moreover, an American energy consultant, who is now an official with the Department of Energy’s office of Nuclear Energy, produced a memorandum regarding the acquisition of Uranium One and other legislative matters for one of the main Russian co-conspirators that was then under an FBI clandestine investigation.

Depression and suicide rates in teenagers have jumped in the last decade—doubling between 2007 and 2015 for girls—and the trend suspiciously coincides with when smartphones became their constant companions. A recent study places their screen time around nine hours per day.

Intelligence: North Korea Readies A New Round Of Missile Launches - Mac Slavo

A South Korean spy/intelligence agency says that North Korea is getting ready to launch a new round of missiles. This is spiking new concerns of a clash between the regime and a coalition of American, Japanese, and South Korean forces should a test accidentally strike land.

According to Foreign Policy, the South Korean spy agency “is closely following the developments because there is a possibility that North Korea could fire an array of ballistic missiles this year under the name of a satellite launch and peaceful development of space, but in fact to ratchet up its threats against the United States,” South Korean lawmakers told reporters after a closed-door briefing with intelligence officials.

North Korea’s pursuit of nuclear weapons and missile programs is in defiance of U.N. Security Council sanctions. The communist regime has made no secret of its plans to develop a missile capable of hitting the U.S. mainland. It has fired two missiles over Japan.

Webmaster's Commentary:

White House Declares North Korea A State Sponsor Of Terror

Following comments by the White House last week that the administration would soon bring more pressure on North Korea, President Donald Trump has confirmed as much to a crowd of reporters, adding that, as of today, that North Korea would once again be designated a terror sponsor.

Trump cited the killing of North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un's estranged half brother in a Malaysian airport earlier this year, as well as the North’s horrific treatment of Ohio college student Otto Warmbier, as justifications for the sanctions.

“North Korea has supported acts of international terrorism, including assassinations on foreign soil,” Trump said.

During remarks at the start of a cabinet meeting at the White House, Trump said the Treasury Department will announce on Tuesday additional sanctions against North Korea, describing the moves as “a very large one.” The sanctions will be imposed over the next two weeks, Trump said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. President, a word, please: what is this actually going to accomplish, please, in terms of getting North Korea to denuclearize?!?

Lerner, Paz say they fear physical harm from enraged public, want IRS testimony sealed permanently

Former IRS executive Lois G. Lerner told a federal court last week that members of her family, including “young children,” face death threats and a real risk of physical harm if her explanation of the tea party targeting scandal becomes public.

Ms. Lerner and Holly Paz, her deputy at the IRS, filed documents in court Thursday saying tapes and transcripts of depositions they gave in a court case this year must remain sealed in perpetuity, or else they could spur an enraged public to retaliate.

“Whenever Mss. Lerner and Paz have been in the media spotlight, they have faced death threats and harassment,” attorneys for the two women argued.
Ms. Lerner and Ms. Paz gave taped depositions in a class-action lawsuit brought by tea party groups demanding answers and compensation for having been subjected to illegal targeting for their political beliefs.

“Today the United States is designating North Korea a state sponsor of terrorism,” Trump declared from the White House on Monday. “It should have happened a long time ago, should have happened years ago.”

The designation gives the United States government additional powers over defense exports, arms control, financial restrictions, and restrictions of US foreign assistance. It also opens doors to additional sanctions.

There are three countries currently designated state sponsors of terrorism: Iran, Sudan, and Syria.

EXCLUSIVE: Bill Clinton is facing NEW accusations of sexual assault by four women while the former president was working with a billionaire playboy and flying on his private jet nicknamed Air F**k One, claims Clinton author

Bill Clinton is facing explosive new charges of sexual assault from four women, according to highly placed Democratic Party sources and an official who served in both the Clinton and Obama administrations.

The current accusations against the 71-year-old former president — whose past is littered with charges of sexual misconduct — stem from the period after he left the White House in 2001, say the sources.

Attorneys representing the women, who are coordinating their efforts, have notified Clinton they are preparing to file four separate lawsuits against him.

When unpaid student loan bills mean you can’t work

Few people realize that the loans they take out to pay for their education could eventually derail their careers. But in 19 states, government agencies can seize state-issued professional licenses from residents who default on their educational debts. Another state, South Dakota, suspends driver's licenses, making it nearly impossible for people to get to work.

As debt levels rise, creditors are taking increasingly tough actions to chase people who fall behind on student loans. Going after professional licenses stands out as especially punitive.

Firefighters, nurses, teachers, lawyers, massage therapists, barbers, psychologists and real estate brokers have all had their credentials suspended or revoked.

Tur responded, “But did she see him sign it?”

“You know, I don’t — I haven’t asked her if she saw him, but we did describe what happened that evening in question. What she alleges was that she put it on the counter; that I think she asked to sign — or that he did sign it. That’s all,” Allred said.

The host responded, “I ask this, because it seems you’re not 100% sure that it is his signature, and if you’re not 100% sure that it is his signature, why would you show it at a press conference?”

Jones said, “Well, it’s a little bit too late for that now, isn’t it? So, it makes you wonder if they really, truly mean what they say. Because us women did not get any kind of help whatsoever from any of those liberal women. They ridiculed us. We were called all kind of names. We were not believed. And I just — I hope that it’s true that they think that now, but I don’t know that it’s — that I believe it.”

Broaddrick stated, “It’s absolutely disgusting, Laura. This great epiphany, that should have occurred 20 years ago, coming about now is — I should feel ecstatic about it, but I don’t. I feel very disappointed that they waited two decades to do this.”

PolitiFact's guide to fake news websites and what they peddle

At first look, BostonTribune.com certainly seems a trustworthy source. So does KMT11.com. And ABCNews.com.co. Even 24wpn.com has an official ring to it.

But all of these websites peddle bogus stories, either by making up fake news or sharing it from other sources. And it’s not always apparent to readers that’s the case.

Since December, we at PolitiFact have been partnering with Facebook to root out fabricated reports shared by social media users. As of April 19, we’ve written more than 80 fact-checks about fake news stories. We’ve noted some trends along the way, chief among them that it can be really difficult for readers — from casual skimmers to seasoned newshounds — to spot fake news outlets when they pop up.

It’s also difficult to determine where these fictional stories come from, and just how they spread across the Internet.

In Syria, there never was a “revolution.” Instead, it was a premeditated war on Syria by foreign powers (namely the US, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey, and Israel) who armed even Al-Qaeda (something Qatar recently admitted).

In support of the conflict comes some of the most egregious war propaganda, endorsed by media, Hollywood celebs, and faux human rights groups. The following is a brief outline of some of the most obvious hoax personalities and purveyors of misinformation on Syria.

SYRIAN WAR REPORT – NOVEMBER 20, 2017: GOVERNMENT TROOPS LIBERATED AL-BUKAMAL FROM ISIS

On November 19, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA), Hezbollah and Iranian-backed militias restored control over the border city of al-Bukamal after a week of intense fighting with ISIS terrorists there. The Russian Aerospace Forces actively supported the SAA advance.

Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps General, Qasem Soleimani, was also filmed in the city. Earlier, the Hezbollah-linked TV channel Al Mayadeen claimed that Soleimani was a commander of the entire al-Bukamal operation.

No Proof Iran Behind Houthi Missile Launch

A UN panel appointed by the UN Security Council says it has seen no proof of Saudi Arabia’s claims that Iran was responsible for the recent missile attack by the Yemeni Houthi fighters targeting Riyadh. In a confidential letter sent to UNSC diplomats on Nov. 10, the panel said they had seen no evidence to support Saudi claims that short-range ballistic missiles have been transferred to Yemeni forces in violation of UNSC resolutions, the US-based investigative website The Intercept reported on Friday. Saudi Arabia has accused Iran of supplying Houthis with short-range ballistic missiles, one of which was intercepted by the Saudi Air Force in midair before targeting an airport near Riyadh on Nov. 4. Top American officials, including US President Donald Trump, have also repeated Saudi accusations against Iran.

Report Notes Dramatic Increase In Homelessness In Germany

“Whoever has no house now will not build one anymore.” As beautiful as the Rilke poem about the approaching end of the year may sound—for the homeless, the onset of winter is the worst punishment. The Federal Working Group for Homelessness (BAG W) reported this week that the homeless now number almost 1 million in Germany, approximately 860,000.

BOOM!! Democratic Party Implodes After Obama Admin Just Threw Clintons Under The Bus In Major Way

The Democrat party loves to portray themselves to the American public as a united front fighting for the disadvantage and the so-called oppressed in the country. Though with just a little digging that comradery facade falls apart like a cheap suit from Walmart. Ever since President Donald Trump trounced Hillary Clinton last year, the Democratic party has been in shambles with no clear leadership which has led to infighting in the already fractured party. With President Trump draining the swamp and closing in on the scoundrels in Washington D.C. that have been actively destroying our country top Democratic officials are turning on each other to save their skin.

South Detects "Engine Test" At North Korean Nuclear Facility

More than two months have passed since North Korea held one of its missile tests - the longest period of tranquility this year, although it may be ending soon: South Korea’s National Intelligence Service warned on Monday that it has detected suspicious activity at the North’s missile research facility – the latest sign that another test may occur by the end of the year. South Korean intelligence has on more than one occasion captured spy satellite images of the North Korean military transporting equipment from the North’s missile facility near Pyongyang. While security analysts speculated at the time that these movements could portend another missile test, none have materialized.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It looks as though the recent Chinese contingent was unable to bring about any change in Kim Jung Un's stance on his nuclear missile program.

I think it is only a question of time before he orders another missile test.

Fukushima: Scientists Confirm Reactor Radiation Reached 'Unimaginable' Levels

Scientists on the ground at the clean-up operation for the Fukushima nuclear reactor have warned that the radiation levels from the Daiichi power plant have now reached "unimaginable levels" despite the threat being downplayed by Japan's Prime Minister Shinz? Abe.Tokyo Electric

Power Company (TEPCO) has revealed that the radioactivity level is now 100 times greater than what would be normally considered a deadly emergency threat, according to Japan's National Institute of Radiological Sciences.

Afghan Opium Production At Record High Despite British Troops Dying To Stamp It Out

Opium production in Afghanistan has almost doubled this year over 2016, according to a United Nations survey. As the Taliban returns to territory liberated by UK forces in 2001, the booming drugs industry is further proof the war failed in its basic aims.

One of the justifications given by former Prime Minister Tony Blair for Britain’s intervention in Afghanistan against the Taliban back in 2001 was to stop the production of opium poppies used to make heroin.

Greyerz Says One Of The Two Largest Banks In Switzerland Just Refused To Hand Over Clients’ Physical Gold. Even More Surprising Is What The Client Did Next

A 3rd Swiss Bank Refuses To Hand Over Clients’ Gold
This week I was contacted by a person who went to his bank in Zurich — one of the two largest in Switzerland — to get his physical gold out. He had seen my KWN article on the subject. The bank, one of the biggest Asset Management banks in the world, told him that he couldn’t have his own gold because of new rules within the bank.

What The Client Did Next Was Even More Surprising
But this man did not give up that easily. He asked for a letter from the bank confirming that they refused to hand his gold to him. He told the bank that he would take this letter to the police. The bank clearly got scared and after three hours wait, the gentleman was told by the bank that they would hand his gold to him. So very generous of the bank to hand the client’s asset bank to him!

Meanwhile In Sweden, Crime Hits All Time Highs

It appears President Trump, having warned that Sweden's huge intake of refugees would lead to "problems like they never thought possible," has been vindicated.

And now nine months later, Trump's worst fears - and the lies of Swedish authorities - have been confirmed.

Bloomberg reports that the number of Swedes who were victims of crimes such as fraud and sexual offenses jumped to the highest level on record last year.

A survey by the Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention showed that 15.6 percent of people suffered one or more offences against the person (defined in the survey as assault, threats, sexual offences, robbery, fraud or harassment) last year. That’s up from 13.3 percent in 2015 and the highest number recorded since the annual Swedish Crime Survey started in 2006.

Entire Baltimore Neighborhood Under Lockdown: "Police Declared Martial Law"

Five days ago, Det. Sean Suiter, a married father of five and an 18-year veteran with the Baltimore Police, was patrolling the streets of West Baltimore around 5pm last Wednesday when he saw suspicious activity. Suiter approached a man and was shot point blank in the head, in a summary execution. He was rushed to the hospital in critical condition where he later died of his injuries.

In response, Baltimore Police reacted with ‘fire and fury’ turning the neighborhood where Suiter was shot into an “open-air prison”, shutting down city streets and enabling checkpoints for citizens while officers in tactical gear went door to door, according to Baltimore Brew. Residents were prohibited from entering their own neighborhood unless they showed proper identification, these extreme measures have been in place for 4-5 days.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder for just how many more days will the Baltimore Police Department be doing this, and what impact it will have overall, on crime in this city?!?

Brennan and Clapper: Elder Statesmen of the Intelligence Community or “Serial Fabricators”?

In other words, after an arduous 12 month-long investigation involving both Houses of Congress, a Special Counsel, and a small army of high-paid Washington attorneys, the only straw Brennan has found to hold on to, is a few innocuous advertisements posted on Facebook and Twitter that had no noticeable impact on the election at all. That’s a very weak foundation upon which to build a case for foreign espionage or presidential collusion. It’s hard not to conclude that the public has been seriously misled by the leaders of this campaign.

Mystery Surrounds Sudden Death of Mega Donor To Hillary Clinton & Barack Obama

Questions are being raised after the cause of death was withheld. Mostyn did not have a history of mental illness.

Mostyn made millions by suing insurance companies after Hurricane Rita in 2005 and Hurricane Ike in 2008 ravaged the state of Texas.

According to the Daily Caller, the Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT) issued a formal complaint against Hillary Clinton’s campaign for coordinating with Mostyn’s Ready for Hillary Super PAC.

FACT has asked other federal agencies to investigate the Clinton campaign’s dealings. The watchdog sent a letter to the IRS asking it to investigate a $350,000 payment that the Clinton Foundation made to Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign for an email list of potential donors.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Is this another entry for the dead bodies list?

Double-crossed Maidan snipers on TV in Italy: Paymaster -- head of Georgian Security; Orders -- cause chaos

The snipers' version of the massacre in Kiev: "Orders from the opposition"

In Ukraine in 2014 80 people were killed. The accusations fall against the anti-Yanukovich front.

"Everyone started shooting two or three shots at a time. It went on for fifteen, twenty minutes. We had no selectivity. We were ordered to shoot both on the police and the demonstrators, without making any distinction.
"I was totally outraged."

So Georgian Alexander Revazishvilli remembers the tragic shootout of February 20, 2014 in Kiev when a group of mysterious snipers opened fire on crowds and police, massacring over 80 people.

Netanyahu interrogated for hours - Israeli police confirm

The Israeli police have confirmed that the country's Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, was interrogated for hours. The charges against him are so serious that they can lead to his resignation.

The Israeli Prime Minister is suspected of taking expensive gifts from representatives of the business community. Secondly, investigators believe that Netanyahu agreed with this country's largest publishing house "Yediot Aharonot"that the government's activities should be covered in the press from a positive angle. In response, Netanyahu promised to pass a law limiting the powers of the main competitor - the Yisrael Ha-Yom newspaper.

Entire Bedouin village faced with forced displacement

An entire village consisting of dozens of Palestinian Bedouin families is threatened with imminent forced displacement, after Israel issued a rare evacuation order for the whole community.

Jabal al-Baba, which lies to the east of Jerusalem in the occupied West Bank, is home to more than 300 people.

"Residents are becoming paranoid of the future because it is unknown," Atalah Jahalen, a local community leader, told Al Jazeera on Saturday.

"All their lives, they have lived and built in this area, and now all of it can be destroyed at any moment."

According to Jahalen, Israel's civil administration and police entered Jabal al-Baba on Thursday. They hung a poster in a central location detailing the evacuation decision and displaying a map of the area.

The order informed residents that they had eight days to collect their belongings and leave, or else Israeli authorities would return to force them out.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This strategy, on Israel's part, makes a potential contiguous Palestinian state impossible; and secondly, where, please, are these soon to be dispossessed Palestinians supposed to go?!?

Not That Invisible: Russian Radars Spot Overhyped French Stealth Frigate

The French stealth frigate La Fayette has been tracked by the radar stations of the Russian Black Sea Fleet, a Crimean security source told RIA Novosti on Monday.

According to the source, Russian radars are capable of detecting ships of this class hundreds of kilometers away.

"The much-hyped stealth technology [of the French frigate] has been disrupted by the Russian radioelectronic industry. The Black Sea's electronic warfare units detected the La Fayette frigate as it passed through the Bosporus," the source said, adding that the warship is still under surveillance.

Anti-BDS Laws

A proposed law at the Italian Parliament is set to punish the boycott of Israel. In the past, such an initiative would have been unthinkable. Alas, Italy, a country that had historic sympathies with the Palestinian cause, has shifted its politics in a dramatic way in recent years. Most surprisingly, though, the Left is as implicated as the Right in the rush to please Israel, at the expense of Palestinian rights.

Theresa May expected to cave to EU and offer DOUBLE Brexit ‘bill’ pay-off to Brussels

Britain is expected to cave to the European Union (EU) today and discuss offering a higher Brexit settlement, despite earlier claims that the government did not “recognise” the two-week deadline.

Theresa May’s government is expected to offer a larger sum to the EU in a desperate bid to unblock negotiations - after Michel Barnier and his Brexit team refused to budge.

With 50,000 Yemeni children dead in 2017, UK-US-Saudi war enters horrific new stage

Two-and-a-half years of a lethal blockade and bombardment have produced almost nothing regarding territorial gains in the West’s Saudi-executed war against the Yemeni nation. The tightening of the blockade is an obscene, desperate attempt to put off its inevitable defeat.
The war against Yemen, sponsored by the West and executed by their ever-loyal Saudi fall guys, is going badly. Very badly.

Coming to grips with the fear of war in Lebanon

Ahmad Tajeldin Abdullah remembers when his neighbourhood was filled with dead bodies. Three years ago, on the streets of Tripoli, he witnessed snipers shoot children on their walk to school, homes destroyed by explosions, and women being shot while hanging laundry outside.

Abdullah was starting to get used to peace in his country, but now he is terrified that it is about to end.

"I can already see a war coming," he says. "I have a daughter who's just 13 days old. I'm afraid for my children's lives."

OPINION
Is Lebanon on the verge of another conflict?
Halim Shebaya
by Halim Shebaya
His fear stems from a political crisis brewing in Lebanon.

It started on November 4, when Prime Minister Saad Hariri abruptly resigned.

He made the announcement from Saudi Arabia, fell off the radar for eight days, and then broke his silence in a televised interview, again from Saudi.

The series of events fueled rumours that Saudi forced Hariri to resign.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is not only Iran and Saudi Arabia vying for political power here; it is also Israel as well.

Delingpole: Trump Right to Let Big-Game Hunters Bring Back Elephant Head Trophies from Africa

Lane runs the Bhejane Trust, a charity dedicated to preserving the black rhino in parks including Hwange. “I’m a great fan of Prince William, but he’s got it completely wrong on trophy hunting,” he tells me. “Not only does it provide a large chunk of our national park budget, but it gives local people a vested interest in preserving wildlife.”

Take elephants — one of the big five species most favoured by trophy hunters (the others being lion, leopard, Cape buffalo, and rhino). To a squeamish urban Westerner, it might seem a monumental tragedy when — as happened in Zimbabwe in October — a massive bull elephant gets shot by some fat German trophy hunter. To a starving African villager, though, it’s a lifeline.

Recently Turkey and the United States stopped issuing visas to each other’s citizens. This is more than just another travel ban. It is a geopolitical spectacle unique in modern history: two allied countries blocking normal back-and-forth travel. An old relationship has gone deeply sour.
