Grenfell Tower was riddled with ASBESTOS which blew over neighbouring homes


Revealed: the tower block fire warnings that ministers ignored
“King, who was a chief fire officer for 20 years, said: “They seem to need a disaster to change regulations, rather than evidence and experience. It was the same with the King’s Cross fire and the Bradford City football club fire. They always seem to need a significant loss of life before things are changed.””
“Reports into a previous fire at Lakanal House in Camberwell, south London in 2009, in which six people died, and a subsequent coroner’s report led to urgent calls from the fire sector for action. But seven years later those calls had still not been acted on and a long-awaited review of building and safety regulations had not even begun.”

London fire: A tale of two tower blocks
“Once you get past the sales brochure description of 3 Merchant Square’s walnut cutlery drawer inserts and integral wine coolers, the adjustable mood lighting and heated bathroom walls, you come to the fire safety details: Every flat has not only ceiling mounted smoke detectors but sprinklers.”
“The International Fire Sprinkler Association (IFSA) says that automatic fire sprinkler systems are the single most effective fire protection measure available, and are able to make up for a wide range of other fire protection deficiencies.”
“A 2012 report by the British Automatic Fire Sprinkler Association (BAFSA) concluded that fire sprinklers could be retrofitted with tenants in place at a cost of about £1,150 a flat. Since the 24-storey Grenfell Tower contained 120 flats, it would have worked out at £138,000. That’s significantly less than the £2.6m spent on the cladding and replacement windows.”

Is Bitcoin Money?
“Once one understands that money needs to be able to exchange value in time and space, it is easier to see why bitcoin is so attractive”
“Given that bitcoin is better than gold in the short term and much better than the dollar in the long term across the dimensions we have described, it’s not surprising that people chose to diversify their money holdings into this independent currency due to frustration with the mismanagement of fiat money and manipulation of gold prices.”

Apple Co-Founder Steve Wozniak Took Interest in Bitcoin When It Was Still Priced at $700

U.S Judge Upholds Vote To Confiscate Family’s $80mln Gold Coins
“The family who found ten gold coins allegedly worth $80 mln has again lost the battle to stop the US government confiscating them. Acc Mag reported on Wednesday June 14 that Judge Legrome Davis of the Eastern District Court of Pennsylvania upheld the position of the state: the coins originally belonged to the state, therefore the discoverers would not be offered compensation.”
“The story is a timely reminder about the lack of control over state-issued means of exchange in an age where decentralized assets are flourishing.”
How would a government go about confiscating someone’s bitcoins ?

Fear of Contagion Feeds the Italian Banking Crisis
“Padoan has no choice but to deny all rumors of a bail-in; otherwise there would be a massive rush for the exits. In the weeks and even days leading up to Popular’s collapse, Spain’s Economy Minister Luis de Guindos repeatedly reassured investors that the bank was perfectly safe and solvent. All the while government agencies, including Spain’s social security fund, and regional government authorities were emptying the deposits they held with the bank as fast as they could. The total is unknown but it certain ran into billions of euros.”
“As Constâncio well knows, in Italy financial stability concerns are off the charts. So chronic and widespread are the banking sector’s structural problems that there is a very real risk that bailing in one or two midsize banks could prompt depositors and investors to move funds from weak banks to stronger ones (including banks outside the country), accelerating liquidity stress and even bank runs.”
“Even in Spain, which already restructured its banking sector years ago at a total cost to taxpayers of around €300 billion (including government guarantees), it didn’t take long for contagion to spread after Popular’s collapse. The most affected bank was Liberbank, Spain’s eighth largest lender, whose shares collapsed by a third in the three days following the bail-in of Popular. By Monday morning Spain’s stock market regulator, the CNMV, was sufficiently spooked to institute a one-month ban on shorting the bank’s shares, which, at least for now, seems to have stalled the rout.”
Bitcoin is immune from a financial crisis.

“There’s no mealy-mouthed truckling about what happened. The first episode opens with the voice of Lindsay Moran, a one-time clandestine CIA officer, declaring, “The agency was elbow deep with drug traffickers.””
“Then Richard Stratton, a marijuana smuggler turned writer and television producer, explains, “Most Americans would be utterly shocked if they knew the depth of involvement that the Central Intelligence Agency has had in the international drug trade.””


Tim Price: “The UK Today Feels Like A Very Strange & Disturbing Place”
“If you have been voting for politicians who promise to give you goodies at someone else’s expense, then you have no right to complain when they take your money and give it to someone else, including themselves -Economist Thomas Sowell”
Or give it to the banksters, let’s not forget them.

Matt Taibbi on JPMorgan Chase’s Worst Nightmare: The $9 Billion Witness
“In reality, there is nothing surprising in Matt Taibbi’s latest piece since returning to Rolling Stone from the Intercept, as it tells a story everyone is by now is all too familiar with: a former bank employee (in this case Alayne Fleischmann) who was a worker in a bank’s (in this case JPM) mortgage operations group, where she observed and engaged in what she describes as “massive criminal securities fraud” and who was fired after trying to bring the attention of those above her to said “criminal” activity.”
By using a bank we are associating ourselves with criminals.

Supreme Court unanimously reaffirms: There is no ‘hate speech’ exception to the First Amendment
“From today’s opinion by Justice Samuel Alito (for four justices) in Matal v. Tam, the “Slants” case:”
“[The idea that the government may restrict] speech expressing ideas that offend … strikes at the heart of the First Amendment. Speech that demeans on the basis of race, ethnicity, gender, religion, age, disability, or any other similar ground is hateful; but the proudest boast of our free speech jurisprudence is that we protect the freedom to express “the thought that we hate.””
Who gets to decide what speech is hate speech ?

Colonialism in Tanzania, GMOs Enforced By Law, Farmers Face Prison for Traditional Seeds
“The NAFSN has forced the Tanzanian government to change its agricultural laws so that non-patented seeds (all the seeds Tanzanian people previously used; non-GMO seeds) are banned. Non-GMO seeds are now forbidden by law from being sold or even given to friends and family. Individuals who violate the law will face minimum of 12 years in prison and a $230,000 fine or both.”
Banning nature.

700 EU laws introduced in Britain since EU referendum – and 1,200 expected before Brexit
“SEVEN-HUNDRED laws from the European Union have been introduced in Britain since the Brexit vote – adding to the estimated 19,000 EU regulations, directives and other rules already embedded in UK law.”
“Britain is set to officially break from the bloc in March 2019, but years of complications could follow when directives are untangled.”
“The Government will need to decide which legislation to keep, and which to throw out, after Brexit.”
“Before the leave date an estimated 1,260 rules might be embedded in British law.”

Rand Paul HUMILIATES Trump & His Lackeys for Attempting to Arm Saudi Arabia

“The HPV vaccine is neither safe nor effective, this is an irrefutable fact. As the truth about the scientific research fraud and medical crimes done to hide the dangers of this shot continues to become public, the criminals are scurrying. The medical community at large is facing the gut check of a lifetime — to follow orders or not to follow orders, this is the question of the day. With the evidence at hand, massive legal action is now a possibility for those health care providers who continue to inject their patients with the HPV vaccine.”

Dear Democrats / Media: ICYMI Last Night Was A Referendum On You, Not Trump
“Democrats lost despite CNN, MSNBC, New York Times, Wapo, etc blasting out fake narratives on Russian hacking 24/7…an all out propaganda blitz…millions of dollars worth free air time for the Democrat cause…but it didn’t matter.”
“And Democrats lost depite their best efforts to once again use aggressive “oversamples” to rig polling data. As we pointed out last night, the Real Clear Politics average had Ossoff winning by 5 points just last week…for those keeping track that’s a roughly 10-point polling ‘error’ from how things actually turned out….but it didn’t matter.”
More mainstream candidates losing – I love it.

“If you ever had any doubt that democrats consider your money theirs, Nancy Pelosi just erased that. According to her, if you are “allowed” to keep the money you earn, that’s really stealing from poor people who didn’t earn it. I know this is some dizzying liberal logic, but that’s how they like things.”


The Passing Of The Pelosi Era
“The Pelosi factor has been a drag on Democrats in all four of the special elections the party has lost since Trump’s November triumph.”

Even many Democrats realize the Russian narrative is nonsense.




Conspiracy Theory No More: State Dept. Finally Admits The US Gov’t Planned 1953 Iranian Coup
“The newly declassified documents, titled “Foreign Relations of the United States, 1952-1954, Iran, 1951–1954,” provide a notable difference from the State Department’s 1989 version of the coup, which left out any involvement from American and British intelligence.”

Iran intolerable for US as independent force in region
“The policy hasn’t expired. The US is unwilling to tolerate an independent force in the region. Furthermore, US leaders cannot forgive Iran for having overthrown the dictator it installed in the 1953 coup.”

“The Second Amendment, in conjunction with the multitude of prohibitions on government overreach enshrined in the Bill of Rights, was supposed to serve as a clear shackle on the government’s powers. As 20th century libertarian Edmund A. Opitz observed in 1964, “No one can read our Constitution without concluding that the people who wrote it wanted their government severely limited; the words ‘no’ and ‘not’ employed in restraint of government power occur 24 times in the first seven articles of the Constitution and 22 more times in the Bill of Rights.””

Dragnetting The Independent Media! All Hands On Deck!
“Remember Fake News? Remember little Miss Melissa Zimdars who took up her pen and began to write? Remember how her list of Fake News sites went viral in November 2016?”
“Many people in Independent Media were most disappointed that they had not made it onto the original list and decided that they would just have to work harder telling the truth. Some of them to their relief, were added at a later date. Some even emailed little Miss Zim and asked to be added. If anything it became a badge of honour as opposed to the attempt to discredit them, especially amongst their readers and followers who have remained faithful and supportive for many years.”
“This is not ” capitalism”with checks and balances against monopolies and healthy competition, this is hegemonic corporate fascism and all the censorship that goes with that in order to eliminate alternative options.”
