Bird Flu : Dutch Authorities Confirm Second Outbreak At Chicken Farm

"Bird flu" now a media catch-all phrase for all "novel" corona virus outbreaks - as if the birds themselves were responsible for the virus, they are merely the unfortunate carriers of these infernal pathogens created in labs

Dutch authorities have confirmed a second case of bird flu at a chicken farm, 15 miles away from a farm infected earlier this week.


A bad time to be a chicken in Ter Aar
Thursday's case was at a farm in the village of Ter Aar in South Holland province.

Tests are being conducted to establish the exact strain of bird flu in the latest case. The earlier Dutch case was confirmed as H5N8, which British officials said poses a very low public health risk.

All 43,000 chickens at the farm in Ter Aar were being slaughtered and the government banned the transport of poultry and eggs nationwide.



The infection follows a confirmed outbreak of bird flu on a Yorkshire duck breeding farm, where officials were forced to cull all 6,000 birds in order to prevent any spread of infection.

That case was the H5 version of the virus, which differs from the H5N1 strain which has caused deaths in humans. The Government has stressed the risk to humans remains “very low."

On Monday, the European Commission introduced emergency measures to contain outbreaks of bird flu in the UK and the Netherlands.

The transport of poultry and eggs throughout the Netherlands is now banned as officials believe that the disease may have spread to the UK via Dutch or German links.

NYC Reserves 100 Rooms For Homeless, Gets Banned By Hotel

Raddison corporate management would rather see the bodies of frozen homeless picked up off the streets, NYC should pass laws forcing hotels to shelter the homeless during emergencies like this or be shut down, seized and sold at auction - they are not Four Seasons or anything close

A New York City hotel was not pleased when it set aside 100 rooms for a “government group” only to find out that scores of homeless people were going to occupy them for more than a week.


THIS, in the wealthiest country in the world
In fact, the Radisson Hotel in Queens was upset enough to ban New York’s Department of Homeless Services (DHS) from booking rooms there any time in the future.

The whole situation unfolded after a city representative called the hotel in October to reserve 100 rooms for a “government group” in November. That phrase is typically one that hotels love to hear, especially in slow months, but when DHS called to confirm the details of its 10-day reservation, Radisson general manager Pierre Merhej was caught off guard.


"We didn't know it was homeless residents but then when we talked to [DHS] they said they really need the room and they would really appreciate it if we helped them for a week or 10 days," Merhej said to DNAinfo.

According to DHS, the reservations were made to temporarily house homeless residents as temperatures across the city drop sharply. The agency said the hotel rooms were just a stop-gap solution while it figured out exactly where to send people.


Homeless Veterans on the street: Immoral, inexcusable, Satanic

“DHS has always used temporary spaces for families as they await eligibility determinations to come into shelter," the spokesman said to the website. "This is a short-term measure and ensures that no family is without shelter as the temperatures drop.”


While Merhej noted that the homeless guests didn’t interfere with the day-to-day activities of the hotel or its guests, he told DNAinfo that DHS won’t be allowed to book rooms there in the future – no matter how much they offer to pay.



“This is a hotel, not a shelter, and we want to keep it this way,” he said. "We have a business to run and a reputation to keep and we intend on keeping it."

As winter weather begins to settle in, the plight of New York City’s homeless will continue to raise concern. There are more than 58,000 homeless people in the city, according to DHS’ most recent report, and more than 25,000 of them are children.

However, New York isn’t the only state struggling with this issue. Hawaii made headlines earlier this month for planning to ship out some homeless residents with free one-way tickets out of the state. The plan was initiated after repeated complaints from tourists.

Elsewhere, even efforts to help feed the homeless have come under heavy scrutiny. Recently, Florida police threatened to arrest two priests and an elderly veteran for sharing food with the hungry – a new ordinance prohibits the act and makes it a citable offense.

Back in February, officials in Columbia, South Carolina, began requiring any group of 25 people or more to pay for and obtain a permit 15 days in advance if they wished to use the city’s parks for an event. This requirement was extended to non-profit groups and charities, though their fees would be smaller. Those fees – as much as $120 per week – could not be met by some food programs, including one that had been sharing meals for over a decade.

WAYNE MADSEN : CIA Assassination Furthered Dutch Neo - Colonialism

Fuelled by unlimited taxpayer money along with proceeds from drug and gun-running, Obama's murdering CIA maniacs continue to spread terror worldwide at an unprecedented rate  

WAYNE MADSEN REPORT
By Wayne Masen
11/21/2014

It has been the policy of the Barack Obama administration to oppose the granting of independence by European colonial powers to any more territories in the Caribbean. Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte told the leaders and people of six Dutch territories in the Caribbean in July 2013 that the Netherlands was prepared to grant independence to the islands but that the United States was adamantly against the idea. 


Obama has family history with the CIA
Rutte was on a visit to each of the islands when he said that he would personally arrange for the islands to become independent but that the United States insisted on continued Dutch control because of two main factors: 1) that the United States preferred the status quo of having its NATO ally, the Netherlands, stationing more Dutch troops in its Caribbean territories than anywhere else abroad; and 2) the United States wanted the islands to maintain their colonial status to prevent them from falling under "mafia" control. 


Under the present neo-colonial arrangements, Aruba, Curacao and Sint Maarten are considered "countries" in association with the Kingdom of the Netherlands while Saba, Saint Eustatius, and Bonaire are considered overseas "municipalities" of the Netherlands. The status for all the islands, except for Aruba, was arrived at after the dissolution of the Netherlands Antilles territory in 2010.

The Barack Obama administration has been extremely hostile to having new nations appear on the international scene during its tenure. Only one, South Sudan, a longtime pet project of Obama’s National Security Adviser Susan Rice, became independent in 2011. Montenegro and East Timor, along with the largely unrecognized Kosovo, became independent during the George W. Bush administration.


Spawn of Satan, murdering CIA scumbag John Brennan
But how far has the Obama administration and the freewheeling Central Intelligence Agency gone in order to prevent any newly-independent nations in the Caribbean? Some suggest that under its thuggish director, John O. Brennan, the CIA engaged in political assassination to help drive home its point.

October 2012 elections in Curacao resulted in a parliamentary majority for political parties that favored total independence for the island. 


A coalition of the pro-independence "Pueblo Soberano" and "Movementu Futuro K├╣rsou" (MFK) gained the most seats in the Estates of Curacao and they continued in their coalition government with the Social Democrats. In August of that year, the MFK Prime Minister Gerrit Schotte was dismissed by the Dutch-appointed governor, Frits Goedgedrag. The governor refused to allow Schotte to carry on as caretaker prime minister after the defection of two parliamentarians from his ruling coalition. 

Curacao was plunged into a constitutional crisis with many pro-independence leaders suspecting not only interference from neo-colonialist Dutch political leaders and the Dutch intelligence services but also from the CIA and Obama administration, which were known to be hostile to any independence moves by the authorities in Willemstad, the Curacao capital. At first, Schotte refused to step down as prime minister, calling Goedgedrag’s actions a coup d’etat. After a few days of holding out in the prime minister’s office in Willemstad, Schotte left to campaign for the October election. Stanley Betrian, a former vice president of the Bank of the Netherlands Antilles and royal-appointed Lieutenant Governor of Curacao under the Netherlands Antilles colonial contrivance, became interim prime minister. Continued Dutch colonial rule was in safe hands for the time being.




Students of CIA-inspired constitutional coups may recall what occurred in Australia in 1975. That year, the Australian Governor General, Sir John Kerr, who was appointed by Queen Elizabeth II, dismissed the Labor government of Prime Minister Gough Whitlam. It was later learned that Kerr had enjoyed a long association with the CIA as one of its most loyal Australian assets. A fierce critic of U.S. and Israeli policies, Whitlam made the CIA and the U.S. National Security Agency uncomfortable when he began asking too many questions about U.S. electronic intelligence-gathering bases near Alice Springs and at other locations. One of the young right-wing activists who rallied student support for Kerr’s actions in deposing Whitlam was Tony Abbott, the current Australian Prime Minister of Australia who threatened to physically assault Russian President Vladimir Putin by "shirt fronting" him at the G20 conference in Brisbane. 

What occurred in Curacao in August 2013 was a microcosm of what occurred in Australia in 1975. The same CIA playbook was used in both cases but in Curacao the rules of the game had a bloodier outcome.

After the October 2012 elections in Curacao, many conservative politicians in the Netherlands urged Curacao to be set free because of what they perceived was rampant corruption on the island and alleged mafia connections of former Prime Minister Schotte. It now appears that these charges were red herrings created by the CIA’s obedient media in the Netherlands to give the impression that Curacao and the other Dutch Caribbean islands were ungovernable as independent entities because of a nebulous "mafia" waiting to take over upon independence. Considering the successful independence enjoyed for decades by the former British territories of Antigua and Barbuda, St. Kitts-Nevis, Dominica, and others, the arguments used against independence for the Dutch Caribbean isles were inane and without foundation.

The head of party with the largest vote count in the October 2012 election was Helmin Wiels of "Pueblo Soberano." The second largest was Schotte’s MFK, which remained in the coalition government headed by Wiels’s party. At the end of October 2012, Wiels announced that a referendum on independence would be held. He also said that upon passage of the referendum, he would begin negotiations with the Netherlands that would allow for dual nationality and visa free travel between the island and the Netherlands. The Socialist and right-wing Freedom Party in the Netherlands, never seeing eye-to-eye on many matters, supported independence for Curacao. These developments set off alarm bells at CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia and at the Pentagon.


On December 31, 2012, another banker, Daniel Hodge of the Party for a Restructured Antilles (PAR) and director of the Curacao Postal Savings Bank, became Prime Minister. Meanwhile, Wiels of the "Pueblo Soberano" continued to call for independence. 

On May 5, 2013, in broad daylight, five bullets tore into Wiels while he was sipping a beer on the Marie Pompoen public beach. 


The attackers who assassinated Wiels sped off in a car and were never caught. The Justice Minister revealed that Wiels had received threats during the previous week and that security had been "increased" around him but no details were provided. 


On June 7, 2013, Ivar Asjes of Wiels’s Soberano party became prime minister. 

However, with Wiels, the catalyst for independence, not at the helm of the aspirant nation of Curacao, the issue of statehood was quickly forgotten and Wiels’s assassins remain at large to this day. 


The following month, Schotte, Wiels’s old coalition partner, said that it was Wiels’s desire for independence of Curacao that led to his assassination. Schotte vehemently denied he had foreknowledge of the plans to assassinate Wiels, stating that his MFK party wholeheartedly supported Wiels’s goal of independence. The only "investigation" conducted in earnest by Curacao prosecutors and police was of Curacao government insiders who began leaking details of the investigation of Wiels’s murder to the media. Schotte’s concerns about Wiels’s assassination by opponents of independence were silenced after he and his girlfriend were arrested by Curacao police on May 20, 2014 on charges of money laundering and forgery. The elimination of the two major proponents of independence for Curacao from the scene may be lauded by the CIA as another highly-classified "success story" but for the peoples of the Caribbean the tale has dire consequences.

Dutch Prime Minister Rutte was correct when he stated that the United States will not permit any more nations in the Caribbean to become independent and that not only includes Curacao but the other Dutch-controlled islands, as well as the British-run Cayman Islands, Anguilla, Montserrat, Turks and Caicos Islands, and Bermuda and the French islands of Martinique and Guadeloupe. 


The use of law enforcement to silence proponents of independence has been used in the British-controlled Turks and Caicos Islands (TCI) to deter pro-independence politicians. Britain successfully had Brazilian authorities arrest former TCI Premier Michael Misick, a proponent of independence who fled the TCI for Brazil after being charged with corruption in the TCI. 


Misick was not only charged with fraud and money laundering but also raping an American resident of Puerto Rico. Misick denied all the charges and, while in exile in Brazil, wrote of Britain’s re-imposition of colonial rule on the TCI by an appointed governor. Misick’s legal problems began after he began to push for TCI independence from Britain. Not only has Britain tightened the colonial screws on TCI, with a wink and a nod from Washington, but a Canadian Tory MP named Peter Goldring has paid two visits to TCI to convince TCI’s British puppet Premier, Rufus Ewing, to begin negotiations on TCI being annexed by Stephen Harper’s Canada. 

As for Wiels’s killers, CIA assassins are rarely caught and brought to justice. The actual assassins of two Presidents of Palau – Haruo Relemik gunned down in 1985 and his successor, Lazarus Salli, shot in his home in 1988 – have never been caught. Both presidents advocated their islands remaining nuclear free after independence from the United States, a policy that was at variance with the CIA and Pentagon.

From Canberra in 1975 to Palau in 1985 and 1988 and Curacao in 2012 and 2013, the CIA playbook remains in force with assassinations, constitutional coups, and frame ups common practices.

"Diabolical & Absurd" : Outrage As Save The Children Gives Tony Blair Global Legacy Award

Add "Deluded, Satanic" to the list: Blair will eventually face a war crimes tribunal along with his retarded, drunken, mass-murdering master George W. Bush; donations to "Save the Children" support genocide, 5 Star accommodations and First Class air travel for administrators

A decision by UK charity Save the Children to give Tony Blair its annual Global Legacy Award has unleashed a torrent of criticism highlighting the former PM’s role in Britain’s 2003 Iraq war and his controversial business dealings in the Middle East.


War criminal Tony Blair
The former Labour leader, who is currently a key focus of a public inquiry into Britain’s invasion of Iraq, received the honor on Wednesday night at a star-studded gala hosted by the charity in New York.

Save the Children’s decision to offer Blair the award has provoked outrage across the UK, with critics insisting the move utterly discredits the charity.

Blair was honored with Save The Children's 'Global Legacy Award' in supposed recognition of his vanguard leadership on the world’s international development stage.


While serving Britain as prime minister, he formally committed the country to allocating 0.7 percent of its GDP to overseas aid. His administration also founded the Department for International Development (DFID).

Following the announcement of Blair’s award at the Illumination Gala in New York’s Plaza Hotel, he fraternized with Hollywood celebrities such as Ben Affleck, Jennifer Garner and Dakota Fanning.

Speaking at the gala, Blair said: “From the beginning of humankind there has been brutality, conflict, intrigue, the destructive obsession with a narrow self-interest.


Dead Iraqi children

“But throughout all human history, never has been extinguished that relentless, unquenchable desire to do good. To act not only in self-interest and sometimes to even to act in defiance of it.”

The former prime minister is central to Sir John Chilcot's inquiry into Britain’s controversial and protracted war in Iraq. UK MPs, campaigners and citizens have long argued that the brutal war divided Britain and blackened Blair’s decade-long leadership.


Damning allegations relating to Blair’s role as Middle East envoy and businesses dealings with autocratic rulers and others in the region have also been levelled.

Earlier this month, it emerged that Blair had signed a multimillion pound contract with a Saudi Arabian oil company in 2010 to broker secret deals on the firm’s behalf with Chinese state officials.

The revelation raised serious questions over the former PM’s diplomatic role as Middle East envoy, and his personal vested interests in the region.


When news of the covert deal surfaced, Oliver Miles, a former UK ambassador to Libya who has called for Blair to be removed from his role as Middle East peace envoy, said the former prime minister should disclose his financial interests in the region.


Earlier this year, Blair managed to successfully quash a Serious Fraud Office investigation into alleged corruption regarding an arms deal with Saudi Arabia.

In July, a former political associate of Blair’s suggested his role in advising the Egyptian government was highly convenient.


The former prime minister could battle the threat of Islamism on the one hand, he told the Guardian, and sink his teeth into “mouth-watering business opportunities” in return for Bush-era advocacy on the other.


Incensed by Blair's award, UK citizen Joe Cook said the decision to honor him in this regard was “horrendous, diabolical and absurd.” Another Briton took to Twitter to demand Save the Children revoke the award, arguing the former prime minister was “the world’s biggest criminal.”
