Three months ago, the CEO of Total, Christophe de Margerie, dared utter the phrase heard around the petrodollar world, "There is no reason to pay for oil in dollars," as we noted here. Today, RT reports the dreadful news that he was killed in a business jet crash at Vnukovo Airport in Moscow after the aircraft hit a snow-plough on take-off. The airport issued a statement confirming "a criminal investigation has been opened into the violation of safety regulations," adding that along with 3 crewmembers on the plane, the snow-plough driver was also killed.

This is one of the best articles I've read recently from a large newspaper (not that I read many of them). I thought DPers would appreciate this.
"THE VOTERS WHO put Barack Obama in office expected some big changes. From the NSA’s warrantless wiretapping to Guantanamo Bay to the Patriot Act, candidate Obama was a defender of civil liberties and privacy, promising a dramatically different approach from his predecessor.

Hello DP, I am still fuming right now. My local community college just had a lockdown drill. This is not abnormal for my school. However, this time the reasoning for the lockdown drill was a group “protesters” that were “attempting to start a riot.” They had actors holding signs and yelling while police stood by. At this point the announcement came over the intercom for the lock down, and all the students were told to hide in a back room.
I’ve been asking myself: Why would they go through the trouble to create this fake scenario? Is this a demonstration of force against the First Amendment? Maybe an example of what will happen to you if you protest here? No one would have the opportunity to capture evidence of police misconduct if they were all quickly ushered into a back room.
I openly shared these concerns with the 40 or so students and faculty while we were locked in a dark room together. Most of them realized how ridiculous the entire situation was, but they were still quite apathetic about it. I attempted to ask the police captain some questions but I didn’t get much out of him he just replied with: “maybe you should come by my office sometime, but I’m going to be busy for the rest of the day.” I am still unsure if this invite was genuine or if the captain was simply deflecting. What questions should I ask this guy if I get another chance? What would you do DP Community?
I'm not sure what to say. Just thought this was interesting.
A few weeks back there was a post here about how "you" experience life. Well, I said I build things sometimes. Anyways, I just finished my coop. First time chicken owner, in about 3 more weeks, my glorious flock will move from the basement into this. Looking forward to the eggs! With anything else, I'm sure I'll have to "improve" some things after the first few weeks to work out the kinks. Just wanted to share as the last screw went in yesterday. Thanks to all at the DP for the inspiration!
The possibility of Ebola (whether real or manufactured) being used as a "false flag" op by the goons is real. "They" want more control and less resistance from the sheeple and what better way than to scare them into compliance by using a horrific disease (the invisible enemy)...
