The Last Hour
In June 2011, Julian Assange received an unusual visitor: the chairman of Google, Eric Schmidt, arrived from America at Ellingham Hall, the country house in Norfolk, England where Assange was living under house arrest.
For several hours the besieged leader of the world’s most famous insurgent publishing organization and the billionaire head of the world’s largest information empire locked horns. The two men debated the political problems faced by society, and the technological solutions engendered by the global network—from the Arab Spring to Bitcoin.
I do not claim to know the perfect balance here, but I have two cents worth I will put in.
It finally hit me that we are using the word "quarantine" all the time, when the first level of quarantine is actually called "voluntary isolation." The nurse who is so upset really ought to be in voluntary isolation. We do seem to have a serious problem with medical personnel who do not understand standard protocols for infectious disease. If I were returning from a time in an ebola clinic, I would have stayed in a hotel in Africa for three weeks before I came home. Then I would have stayed in my home with no visitors for three weeks when I got here. I would not have needed cajoled into this, and would have done it without anyone ordering me to. I would be THAT careful about not giving it to my family. Maybe today's healthcare professionals can learn a little from zoologists?
"Keepers should care only for quarantined animals or if necessary, attend quarantined animals only after fulfilling responsibilities for non-quarantined species."
I brought this quote forward because there is a conference call of nurses blowing whistles, and one of them tells of the nurses going in, treating Duncan, then going back on the floor. They do not do this with chicken pox, for Pete's sake!
In one of the most extraordinary and strange deathbed confessions ever, an Area 51 scientist and career government worker recently left behind a video revealing supposed federal secrets that are nothing short of a conspiracy theorist's dream come true. The Inquistr reported Oct. 28 that Boyd Bushman, a highly accredited aerospace scientist and the holder of numerous innovative patents, decided to come clean in his last hours and record what he knew about the U. S. government's dealings with aliens and its secret UFO program. Perhaps most astonishing of all, though, was his revelation that not only were UFOs real, but that 18 extraterrestrials were currently working for the U. S. government.
I was reading president Putins recent speech and just came away from it thinking..."Wow, this guy has it right." He states the United States in so called "Winning" of the cold war is like a poor person becoming wealthy, and just pissing the money away. He also calls out the Main Stream Media and how it is controlled to make white look black. If you have the time...this is an amazing speech. And really gives a little bit of light on what a great leader this man is. Russia is NOT the Enemy. We are. Please don't comment unless you read the entire thing. Thanks.
From the speech..
It's been months now since the beginning of this latest scare tactic. We were told the big bad monster is coming and it's going to eat our children and so far... (crickets). What, one death (and that person fresh from Africa), a few "infected" and "recovered". We were told that this big bad virus was going to spread like wildfire... it was going to get us when we ride the subway, go to Walmart, and God forbid we should ever have to make a trip to the hospital!! We would never return.
Bring out the Dog and Ponies, and Red Clown Noses for everyone!
YES! - COMING SOON, Once Again! For two totally wasted hours of your time each week, each month, for six whole annoying months before the 2016 presidential elections, you can hear CNN, FOX, and MSNBC Debate Moderators propose the stupidest most irrelevant questions you can possibly imagine, to what seems may potentially be the largest list not only in American history, but in the world, ever assembled, of political hacks and charlatans trying to con you of your vote for the presidency.
This time for your improved viewing pleasure:
*More Lies, Half-Truths, and Omissions than Ever Before!
With a list of liars as long as the Nile, We assure you, the people, a great debate each week, where you can witness the most contradictions you have ever heard (sometimes even in the same answer when Mitt Romney runs) in a total Politics Gone Jerry Springer style!
*Divisive Distraction Issues Galore!
Haven't heard much division about Gay Marriage or Abortion on Cable News since the last election, have you? No sensationalism or urgency about these issues for the last four years? Fear Not! You can be certain that once again, out of the long forgotten blue at election time, these will become the most important, urgent, characterizing issues and questions to be proposed to our ever proliferating list of political paltering podium putzes as your economy and currency is on the brink of collapse, your Constitution is gutted, and wars rage in uncountable locations.
And POT! OMG! Who could ever support POT!

Cutting edge science is being observed daily at this youtube channel.
I honestly believe this is the knowledge that will lead us to understanding our energy bodies.
Over the past few years Peter Schiff has consistently predicted that gold was headed higher, and has consistently been proved wrong. On Thursday, he vigorously defended his calls in a heated debate with trader Scott Nations, who calls his confidence "dangerous."
Why It Took 23 Years to Link Amelia Earhart’s Disappearance to This Scrap of Metal
By Marcus Woo | 10.30.14
Even a piece of metal can get a second chance. In 1991, a group of researchers investigating the disappearance of Amelia Earhart found a sheet of aluminum on the island of Nikumaroro in the Western Pacific. Earhart’s plane, a Model 10 Electra, mysteriously vanished near the island on July 2, 1937. This piece of metal, a sheet 19 inches by 23 inches and made of the same material as Earhart’s plane, looked like it could be the first piece of the aircraft ever found.
The problem was its odd shape and size, which didn’t seem to fit any part of the Electra. “We finally reached the point that we decided that it couldn’t be from Earhart’s plane,” said Richard Gillespie of The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery, which has spent 26 years and made 10 expeditions to investigate the mystery surrounding Earhart’s disappearance.
The team then looked at every other kind of plane that could’ve flown over the Pacific at that time. But, again, nothing fit.
“Earlier this year, around June, I threw up my hands,” Gillespie said. “I didn’t know what the heck this thing is.”
The New York Police Department has detained prominent peace activist and former CIA agent Ray McGovern, with witnesses saying he was “yelling in pain” during arrest. McGovern was detained ahead of a David Petraeus speech that he planned to attend.
McGovern was detained before the start of a talk between former CIA director David Petraeus, retired US Army Lt. Col. John Nagl, and author Max Boot on American Foreign Policy at the 92nd St Y., an Upper East Side cultural community center.
