Stopping (Nonexistent) Malign Activities from Russian Terrorism (SMART) Act

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)

According to proposed Senate legislation, the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism USA wants leading advocate of global peace and stability Russia labeled with this designation.

The measure also calls for Donbass freedom fighters in Donetsk and Lugansk, unwilling to accept fascist rule by Kiev, designated foreign terrorist organizations.

The legislation has nothing to do with preserving and protecting US national security, everything to do with its imperial interests, its endless wars, economic terrorism, and other hostile actions aimed at advancing hegemonic control over planet earth, its resources and populations.

The so-called SMART Act (S.1189) was introduced last April by hardline Senator Cory Gardner. Earlier he said:

“The State Department should consider adding (Russia) to its list of

NYT Fake News on Ukraine

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)

During the Obama regime’s late 2013/early 2014 orchestrated coup d’etat in Ukraine, replacing democratic governance with Nazi-infested fascist rule, the NYT cheerled what happened.

It lied about nonexistent “Russian aggression” and annexation of Crimea while ignoring the Obama regime’s coup against a sovereign state, praising the lawless action.

Days after the coup, its editors lied claiming Russia’s “parliament granted President Vladimir Putin authority to use military force in Ukraine (sic) as Russian security forces effectively seized control of the Crimean peninsula (sic).”

No cross-border Russian military force was authorized or used, no “seiz(ure)” of Crimea.

When the US coup occurred, winter olympic games were ongoing in Sochi, Russia. Its military forces were mobilized for security reasons — to pr

Hostile to Peace and Stability Arab Leaders Call for Confronting Nonbelligerent Iran

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)

Overtly in cahoots with US-dominated NATO and covertly with Israel, belligerent Arab leaders called for confronting Iran at the 40th Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) summit.

Ignored by their hardline ruling regimes is that the Islamic Republic is the region’s leading peace and stability proponent.

Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz chaired the summit in Riyadh. Member states include Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Qatar, Kuwait, Oman and Bahrain.

Salman heads a regime notorious for public beheadings and whippings, along with other horrific human rights abuses and war crimes abroad.

The Saudis and other fascist Arab states support US imperial wars, economic terrorism, ISIS and likeminded jihadist foot soldiers.

Salman called for Arab unity against nonbelligerent Iran, saying:

“Our region t

Story at-a-glance

-While the widespread availability of CBD oil across the U.S. would make you believe it’s legal everywhere, a recent consumer update from the Food and Drug Administration clarifies the issue, noting that CBD is not recognized as a nutritional supplement

-The FDA is now starting to crack down on CBD makers and sellers for illegal product claims. For the first time in nearly four years, warning letters have been issued to 15 companies for CBD products sold in violation of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act

-The only FDA-approved CBD product is a prescription drug for the treatment of two severe forms of epilepsy

Electric-Powered Commercial Airplane Makes History

News Story Source: Fortune
Nonetheless, when a Beaver lifted off from Vancouver Harbour Tuesday morning, it signaled what many aerospace industry insiders say is commercial aviation’s future. For the first time, an aircraft that carries paying passengers took off with an electric motor.

Startup magniX’s Magni500 electric motor powered the Vancouver-based Harbour Air’s Beaver into the air. The small airline’s chief executive, Greg McDougall, piloted the aircraft during the brief flight over the water, followed by a gentle landing in the harbor. He taxied the plane back to a dock, where a small crowd watching the event cheered.

Plenty of electric-powered aircraft have flown, but Harbour Air is the first airline that is betting its business on electric motors. The airline expects regulators to certify its retrofitted aircraft in about two years, with commercial flights beginning in 2022.

For years, the aerospace industry has been talking about whether electric-powered commercial air travel

Thorium – THE AGE OF ELECTRICITY

News Story Source: LewRockwell.com – By Alvin Lowi, Jr./Chas Holloway
The late 1800s.  A time in America of unlimited freedom.  A time of the rugged individualist.  Tom Edison, deep in his Menlo Park laboratory, creating the Electric Age.  Nicola Tesla, the immigrant competitor, with his electric motor and alternating current.  It was the Golden Age of America.  A time of invention, entrepreneurialism, and genius set free.

At least, that’s the popular myth.

But did you ever wonder what happened to those early American electric companies?  Where is Edison’s company today?  Where is Westinghouse’s company?  In fact, where is any private enterprise electric company?

In 1878, Thomas Edison (and English electrician, Joseph Swan) invented the electrical-resistance-heated, carbon filament, incandescent light bulb.  Self-contained, clean and long-burning, the light bulb was the first popular application for electricity.

Edison’s goal was to replace gas lighting on city streets.  W
