UK: Outrage as school starts grading PARENTS on how well they are supporting their kids

Adults are marked A to D based on how well they are supporting their kids and even get called into the headmistress’ office if they are falling behind. Greasley Beauvale Primary School in Nottinghamshire say the controversial move has helped to push up educational standards. But some furious parents have slammed the concept as “ludicrous” and said teachers should be focusing on their children instead of judging them.

Congress Approves Measure for Crusade Against “Fake News” — Using DoD Funding

The effort grew out of the Countering Foreign Propaganda and Disinformation Act and would supposedly stick to foreign targets. However, the Snowden revelations made us well aware that government is ready and willing to turn its powers on domestic targets — without notification. The fact that this $160 million, two-year authorization is being advanced through the annual military budget makes it all the more disconcerting. Under the guise of the war on terror, the NDAA has been used to increase Executive authority, and the 2012 version went so far as to authorize the indefinite military detention of U.S. civilians without habeus corpus.

Silicon is the second most common element in the Earth's crust, after oxygen. However, aside from its non-organic use by certain sea sponges and microorganisms, very little silicon is used by Earth's biology, despite making heavy use of other common elements, such as carbon, hydrogen, iron, magnesium and oxygen.

Chiquita’s Terrorist Funding

A federal judge in Florida ruled that “victims of Colombian paramilitary death squads funded by Chiquita” have a right to have their case heard in the United States rather than Colombia, “clearing the way for the historic case to advance toward trial.” The ruling comes nearly a decade after Chiquita pled guilty in 2007 to charges of “engaging in unauthorized transactions” with the United Self-Defense Forces of Colombia (AUC), which was designated a global terrorist organization by the US State Department in 2001. “It’s an important win for the victims of violent groups funded by Chiquita,” said Michael Evans, director of the Archive’s Colombia documentation project, “and a big boost for groups seeking to hold multinational corporations accountable for human rights crimes in US courts.”

Washington Post Reporter Spreads Blacklist of Independent Journalist Sites

Timberg and the Washington Post, which is owned by the billionaire CEO of Amazon, Jeff Bezos, are being stridently called out as McCarthyites for an article published on Thanksgiving Day that cited unnamed “experts” at a shadowy group called PropOrNot to smear 200 alternative media sites as tools of Russia. The blacklist included some of the most informed and courageous voices on the Internet like Naked Capitalism, Truthout, CounterPunch, and Truthdig, where the brilliant Chris Hedges, part of a New York Times team that won the Pulitzer Prize in 2002, regularly asks the uncomfortable questions — like this one: “When we look back on this sad, pathetic period in American history we will ask the questions all who have slid into despotism ask. Why were we asleep? How did we allow this to happen? Why didn’t we see it coming? Why didn’t we resist?”

Oh, and he also mentioned that under the same plan, the Navy would be deploying an advanced laser weapon, along with autonomous, artificially intelligent weapons systems. To his credit, Admiral Sir Jones does mention the obligatory objective of ‘world peace’ and such like, but he is also quite candid about the pre-eminence of Britain’s economic interests.

Steve Bannon Says Joining Goldman Sachs Is Like ‘Joining The Jesuits’

During his campaign, President-elect Donald Trump condemned lobbyists, Wall Street, and DC insiders, claiming he would “drain the swamp” and bring reform to Washington if elected. No company epitomizes the incestuous swampy relationship between Washington and Wall Street like Goldman Sachs. Nicknamed Government Sachs, it has already produced two former US treasury secretaries—Hank Paulson and Robert Rubin—and a large number of the federal regulators tasked with policing the financial services industry.

The Battle For Aleppo Is Over, Now The Real War Has Begun

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has essentially reclaimed the city of Aleppo in the past couple of days. The failure to break the siege from the Southwest coupled with the Turkish Army not resupplying militants meant the situation wouldn’t hold for long. Aleppo is the key to the Syrian ‘civil war.’ Now that pro-Assad forces have won the day it touches off a number of responses around the region. This further breaks down the position of U.S/NATO-backed forces trying to oust Syrian President Bashar al-Assad from power, regardless of what Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has to say about it.

The Orwellian War Against Skepticism

Under the cover of battling “fake news,” the mainstream U.S. news media and officialdom are taking aim at journalistic skepticism when it is directed at the pronouncements of the U.S. government and its allies. One might have hoped that the alarm about “fake news” would remind major U.S. news outlets, such as The Washington Post and The New York Times, about the value of journalistic skepticism. However, instead, it seems to have done the opposite.

The House of Representatives has passed an intelligence bill aimed at tackling what Washington claims is political interference by Russia on a global level. The 93-page bill, passed by the House in a 390-30 vote on Wednesday, calls for setting up a new, interagency panel to suppress Russia’s alleged attempts to “exert covert influence over peoples and governments,” The Washington Post reported.
