Obama Funds Hamas with $11bn US Weapons
by Tom McGregor    Wed, Jul 23, 2014, 08:00 PM

President Barry Obama deployed $11 billion of U.S.-made weapons to the Islamist terorist organization, Hamas in the Palestine, so they can wage war against Israel. US Secretary of State John Kerry utilized favorable diplomatic relations with Qatar to ensure the transaction would be completed.

The Houston Chronicle reports that, "Qatar recently cemented an enormous weapons deal with the United States. But this week, the tiny, resource-rich Gulf kingdom with outsized geopolitical ambitions — and a seemingly bottomless pocketbook — might be setting itself up for more problematic relations with the U.S. Last week, Qatar closed the largest sale of American weaponry so far this year, purchasing $11 billion worth of Patriot missile batteries and Apache attack helicopters. The sale revealed that Qatar hasn't exactly been lacking in strategic daring in the wake of its failed bet on Muslim Brotherhood-linked political movements throughout the Middle East, and its subsequent fallout in diplomatic relations with neighboring Gulf monarchies."

Gore Blames Global Warming for Antarctic Ice Expansion
by Tom McGregor    Tue, Jul 22, 2014, 08:02 PM

Scientists from NERC's British Antarctic Survey (BAS) and NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), Pasadena California explain why, unlike the dramatic losses reported in the Arctic, the Antarctic sea ice cover has increased under the effects of climate change."

Suspicions Mount for Kiev and Malaysian Air Crash
by Tom McGregor    Tue, Jul 22, 2014, 05:00 AM

The Ukrainian government of Kiev faces growing suspicions over its involvement of the Malaysian Airlines crash over Eastern Ukraine last week. Kiev officials released audio tapes last weekend, which allegedly proved that Moscow officials were coordinating with pro-Russian separatists to shoot down planes. However, the tapes appear to have been edited one day before the fatal crash occured that killed 298 innocent passengers on board.

According to Pakistan Defence, "In a devastating twist to emerge over the weekend it now seems that the Malaysian civilian airliner downed over Ukraine was most probably brought down as a result of sabotage by the US-backed Kiev regime. The purpose of this audacious act of mass murder – in which 298 lives were lost – was carried out with the intention of framing the Russian government. Washington, the chief sponsor of the Kiev regime, must have known about the plot, if not being fully complicit in it."

HIV Hookers Cash in on Dating Apps
by Tom McGregor    Tue, Jul 22, 2014, 02:05 AM

HIV-infested gay prostitutes are swarming all over dating Apps to rake in big bucks.

The Washington Post reports that, "But location-based apps like Tinder and Grindr — with their frenzied swiping and aura of casual sex — make a particularly good platform for this kind of advertising. “My Danish friend paid off his debt by becoming a gay prostitute,” reads an October 2012 headline on The Billfold, above a story about a man who used a promiscuous European hook-up site to pay off $70,000 of debt. The Internet abounds with similar stories and confessions: “I used to find queer guys on criagslist & grindr and make them pay me for sex,” reads one chilling Reddit post, from May 2013, “… and I just tested positive for HIV.”
