Published 2019-11-10 18:30:32 by Paul Antonopoulos in Eurasia, Greece-Eurasia, Headline-News, Russia

The Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias met with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov in Moscow on November 6 amidst a string of events that have complicated relations between the two countries. Following official visits to Cyprus, Israel and the United States, Dendias has now visited Russia in an effort to re-energize Greek-Russian relations after many years of difficulty. Angering Moscow, the Foreign Minister of the former Syriza administration, Nikos Kotzias, had expelled Russian diplomats in July 2018 on the allegations they were interfering in Greek affairs, and another two diplomats were barred from entering Greece on the allegation they were… Continue ->

Published 2019-11-10 17:30:17 by Guest Author in Headline-News, Iran, Mena

This week, Iran’s atomic energy authority confirmed it would commence enriching uranium past the 3.67 percent cap to 5 percent at its Fordow plant starting Wednesday. This is Tehran’s fourth step in scaling back its commitments under the 2015 Iran Nuclear Deal also known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) in response to the US’s unilateral withdrawal last year, and consequently imposing crippling sanctions, as well as Europe’s inability to offer relief, as was promised. Tehran plans on continuing to scale back its commitments every sixty days till the United States returns to the deal or European nations… Continue ->

CONFIRMED: The average IQ is decreasing

Published 2019-11-10 15:30:55 by Paul Antonopoulos in Headline-News, Science

Since the 70s, the IQ of people has not only stopped growing, but has decreased considerably. Discover the causes for which we are increasingly dumb. Paradoxically, in 1984 the American psychologist James Flynn calculated that between 1932 and 1978 the IQ in the US had increased almost 14 points. But in 2018, a group of Norwegian scientists discovered that as of the 1970s the IQ had gradually begun to decrease seven points in each generation. They reached this conclusion after analyzing the results of IQ tests of more than 700,000 people. This phenomenon can be observed even in a family…. Continue ->

Published 2019-11-10 14:30:48 by Paul Antonopoulos in Eurasia, Headline-News, Russia

MOSCOW – Two Kondor Project 945A submarines actually hunted each other by launching training torpedoes during a multi-day exercise. The 945A Kondor Sierra II Pskov and Nizhny Novgorod attack submarines under the NATO designation are nuclear-powered vessels. During a multi-day tactical exercise in the Barents Sea, the two vessels, belonging to the Russian Navy Northern Fleet, put their crew’s expertise to the test of true spearfishing. Over the course of the exercise, submarines were tasked with “destroying” each other using training torpedoes, the RBC newspaper reported. “The most difficult and crucial moment of joint submarine maneuvers is the firing of… Continue ->

Syria is Lost.. Lebanon’s Gold is Next

Published 2019-11-10 14:15:24 by Guest Author in Anglo-5, Crime, Finance, Headline-News, Isis, Lebanon, Mena, Nato, Politics, Syria, United-States

By Steve Brown – The largest reserve gold traders on the planet are the six bullion banks. A bullion bank is a large multi-national bank authorized to serve as a conduit through which Central Banks – and the Fed primary dealers – loan their gold out into the market. All central banks lease gold, to maintain their balance sheet and to provide sovereign collateral when a currency swap or paper trade won’t work. It’s called the gold carry trade.   There are currently six clearing banks on the LBMA handling gold lease transactions: Barclays, Scotia, Deutsche Bank, HSBC, JPM, and UBS… Continue ->

Several alternative news sites I  truly respect have recently run stories on (or re-posted) the FOX News interview of Dr. Michael Baden about the “homicide” of Jeffery Epstein. I was surprised and sorry to see that these highly esteemed colleagues had taken FOX and Baden at face value and seem to have missed the real story by a wide margin. They seem to have overlooked the fact that this is a classic disinfo technique. The single most effective way to hide the truth is to get people to argue over two different interpretations of a story, both of which are lies…. Continue ->

Published 2019-11-10 11:00:04 by Drago Bosnic in Anglo-5, Eu, Eurasia, Finance, France-Eurasia, Germany, Headline-News, Nato, Politics, United-Kingdom, United-States

BERLIN – NATO is alive and well and integral to Europe’s security, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and NATO Secretary Jens Stoltenberg insisted, hitting back at French President Emmanuel Macron’s claim the alliance is “brain-dead”. Macron’s “drastic words” were “unnecessary, even if we do have problems and must get it together”, Merkel complained at a Berlin news conference on Thursday, insisting the “transatlantic partnership is indispensable for us”, RT reported. Stoltenberg backed her up, declaring “European unity cannot replace transatlantic unity”, and warning that the EU cannot defend Europe without outside assistance. When the UK finally leaves the EU, some 80… Continue ->
