The Mirage of Justice: Of the 2.2 million people we have incarcerated at the moment—25 percent of the world’s prison population—2 million never had a trial.

Who Goes to Jail?: “It is much more grotesque to consider the non-enforcement of white-collar criminals when you do consider how incredibly aggressive law enforcement is with regard to everybody else”.

Owl: GMO Bio-War Against Chipotle?

Who? Who?

Who? Who?

This article’s author, Mike Adams, admits to speculating, as he has no proof the GMO industry is sabotaging Chipotle, but I think it is very plausible speculation. The e. coli outbreaks entail a rare strain of e coli, which make this theory even more compelling.  For those who like connecting the dots, the Chipotle incidents, looked at as Adams has, is reminiscent of the odd deaths of multiple alternative medicine physicians in 2015.

I want to flag and discuss two articles.  The first, Saudi Royal calls for regime change in Riyadh, is a report in the Guardian by Hugh Miles.  He describes the four immediate factors that have stimulated the now famous letters by the anonymous 3rd generation prince calling for the replacement of King Salman and Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman: (1) the double tragedy at Mecca that killed 800 people, (2) the collapse of oil prices, (3) the war in Yemen which, according to Miles, few Saudis support, and (4) King Salman’s elevation of his young son, the inexperienced and impetuous Mohammed bin Salman to the peculiar but powerful post of Deputy Crown Prince, making him second in the line of succession.
