Do you remember the infamous “Underwear Bomber”? He was the justification needed to place X-ray machines and groping sessions at US and many other airports around the world.
Newscorp is reporting that the reason Nigerian born Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was unsuccessful in his attempt, was because his underwear was dirty.
Nigerian terrorist hopeful Abdulmutallab; or “Mr Poopy Pants” as he is known in terror circles.
"Transportation Security Administration John Pistole told the Aspen Institute this week the device failed because of the length of time Abdulmutallab had worn the same pair of underwear.
“Thank goodness for bad hygiene,” he said.”
Abdulmutallab, 27, pleaded guilty in 2012 and was sentenced to life in prison.
He’s being held at the super-maximum security United States Penitentiary Florence ADMAX in Colorado, where presumably he is provided with a fresh set of underwear every day, unless they are hoping to prevent more terror attacks.
German Astronaut Alexander Gerts captured the view of the genocide of the Palestinian people by Israeli forces and posted it to Twitter, describing it as his “saddest photo yet”.

Malaysian Airlines plane crash: Russian military unveil data on MH17 incident over Ukraine (FULL)
Despite the desperate and rather transparent attempts by Western political leaders, and their faithful corporate media, to connect Russian President Vladimir Putin and the "Pro-Russian" rebels (as they are always described by the Anti-Russian media), to the alleged shoot down of Maylasian Airlines flight MH17, we are yet to see one piece of evidence to support the suggestion.
Initial concerns by the west that Putin would not cooperate with an international investigation, have proven to be unfounded and baseless, and Russia has been the most forthcoming of any nation, with valuable data for the investigators.
As reported by the Wall Street Journal, Russia has presented actual radar telemetry of M-17 and two other passenger jets with transponder signals identifying them. It shows M-17 changing it’s course to go into hostile missile territory. There are also two military jets identified as UKR Su-25’s in close proximity of MH17 at the time of the alleged shoot down.
This evidence, which is the most concrete of any to date, completely contradicts the unfounded claims by western sources that the rebel forces used a 1980’s era BUK that had been provided by Putin, to shoot down flight MH17.
The Ukraine military has sixty BUKs in their arsenal, and they have shot down passenger jets in the past, proving their ability to do so. The rebels on the other hand, are not known to even possess one BUK, or have any experience in using such weaponry.
You do the math.
A visit from UFO’s could be the answer to world peace - Bill Clinton
“If we were visited someday, I wouldn’t be surprised, I just hope it’s not like Independence Day, the movie, that it’s a conflict. May be the only way to unite this increasingly divided world of ours. If they’re out there, think of how all the differences among people on earth would seem small if we felt threatened by a space invader”
These are the words spoken by former US President Bill Clinton, on a recent episode of the Jimmy Kimmel show.
The mainstream media are dismissing it as a joke, however his comments eerily mirror those of Ronald Reagan, from 1987.
"In our obsession with antagonisms of the moment, we often forget how much unites all the members of humanity. Perhaps we need some outside, universal threat to make us recognize this common bond. I occasionally think how quickly our differences worldwide would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside of this world. And yet I ask - is not an alien force already among us? "
This is not the first time that Clinton has discussed his interest in Alien visitations and UFO’s. In September 2005 the UFO crash at Roswell again appeared in Bill Clinton’s life, but this time he brought it up in response to a question which had nothing to do with UFOs but rather the idea of “secrets being passed from president to president.” The question came to President Clinton in a question and answer session following a speech made to the CLSA in Hong Kong.
Clinton in reply began speaking about Roswell:
"Well I don’t know if you all heard this, but, there was actually, when I was president in my second term, there was an anniversary observance of Roswell. Remember that? People came to Roswell, New Mexico from all over the world. And there was also a site in Nevada where people were convinced that the government had buried a UFO and perhaps an alien deep underground because we wouldn’t allow anybody to go there. And uhm… I can say now, ‘cause it’s now been released into the public domain…. This place in Nevada was really serious, that there was an alien artifact there. So I actually sent somebody there to figure it out."
"I did attempt to find out if there were any secret government documents that revealed things. If there were, they were concealed from me too. And if there were, well I wouldn’t be the first American president that underlings have lied to, or that career bureaucrats have waited out. But there may be some career person sitting around somewhere, hiding these dark secrets, even from elected presidents. But if so, they successfully eluded me…and I’m almost embarrassed to tell you I did (chuckling) try to find out."
Just some light hearted joking around, or are we being prepared for something more?
After global condemnation, the BBC claims it accidentally used a picture taken in Iraq in 2003, to illustrate the alleged massacre of children in Syria, in 2013
Photographer Marco di Lauro said he nearly “fell off his chair” when he saw the image being used, and said he was “astonished” at the failure of the corporation to check their sources.
The picture, which was actually taken on March 27, 2003, shows a young Iraqi child jumping over dozens of white body bags containing skeletons found in a desert south of Baghdad.
It was posted on the BBC news website today under the heading “Syria massacre in Houla condemned as outrage grows”.
This is yet another example of the lies and propaganda that is fed to us by the mainstream media every day of our lives. Is the Syrian Government really as evil as the mainstream media wants you to believe? Ask yourself this, if things are as bad in Syria as we are being told, then why do they need to use fake images?
VENEZUELAN President Nicolas Maduro has offered to give ”humanitarian asylum” to US intelligence leaker Edward Snowden, who is thought to be waiting in a Moscow airport for a country to give him sanctuary.
”As head of state of the Boliviarian republic of Venezuela, I have decided to offer humanitarian asylum to the young Snowden … to protect this young man from the persecution launched by the most powerful empire in the world,” Maduro said at an independence day event.
Moments earlier in Nicaragua, President Daniel Ortega said his government was willing to give asylum to the US fugitive, offering a glimmer of hope to Snowden, who has been in limbo at Moscow’s international airport since June 23.
Bolivia’s President Evo Morales said he would also grant asylum to Mr Snowden, if the fugitive US leaker, who is holed up in an airport in Moscow, requests it.
Declaring that Bolivia has “no fear” of the United States and its European allies, Mr Morales said that he would be willing “to give asylum to the American, if he asks.”
Mr Snowden has applied for asylum in 27 countries as he tries to evade US justice for disclosing a vast US electronic surveillance program.
But his bids have been rebuffed by several European countries as well as Brazil and India.
The 30-year-old former National Security Agency contractor, however, has received more sympathetic words from governments in Latin America.
But just how Mr Snowden, whose passport was revoked by his country, could travel to either country to take advantage of the offers remains very much uncertain.
Mr Snowden has been scrambling to evade espionage charges after disclosing a vast US electronic surveillance program to collect phone and internet data.
A Venezuelan foreign ministry official said the government had yet to receive an asylum request.
Ortega, also at a public event, said his government had received an asylum application at its embassy in Moscow.
"We are open, respectful of the right to asylum and it is clear that, if circumstances permit it, we would receive Snowden with pleasure and give him asylum here in Nicaragua," the leftist leader said.
Ecuador had been seen as Snowden’s best hope when he arrived at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport from Hong Kong. But the government in Quito has yet to consider his application.
WikiLeaks, the anti-secrecy website aiding Snowden, revealed on Tuesday a list of 21 countries where he applied for asylum, including Venezuela and Nicaragua.
It disclosed on Friday he was seeking shelter in six more countries, writing on Twitter the countries “will not be named at this time due to attempted US interference”.
US President Barack Obama has publicly displayed a relaxed attitude toward Mr Snowden’s movements, saying last month that he wouldn’t be “scrambling jets to get a 29-year-old hacker”.
The message appeared to be an allusion to the drama surrounding the flight of Bolivian President Evo Morales, whose plane was recently abruptly rerouted to Austria over suspicions Mr Snowden was aboard.
US officials wouldn’t directly answer questions about whether they had any information leading them to believe that Mr Snowden was on Mr Morales’s plane.
They have said that officials have contacted their counterparts across Europe to remind them that they would like to see Mr Snowden returned to the US.
The Dream Machine is a device for altering the brainwave frequency of the user and putting it into an alpha state, at which point it begins generating waking, sober hallucinations and internal “movies,” on demand.
The user of the Dream Machine sits in front of it with eyes closed, and allows the precisely-calibrated flicker pattern to play over their face, creating a strobe effect in the darkness behind their eyelids. After a short period of adjustment, the user begins to experience eidetic imagery, in the same way that one does just as passing over the threshold between wakefulness and sleep.
Nostradamus was alleged to have received his visions by closing his eyes, facing towards the sun and flickering his fingers in front of his eyes
The machine was officially unveiled in 1962, at the Louvre’s Museé des Arts Decoratifs, to a fascinated public and press—but Gysin, unsatisfied with a small art audience, dreamed of mass production. Along with the cut-up method of text composition he had honed with Burroughs, Gysin considered the Dream Machine his magical message to the world.
He turned first to business magnate Helena Rubinstein, who was taken with the device and exhibited it in her shop windows, but then refused to pay for it. Next Gysin tried the Philips Corporation—a representative of the company, while visiting Gysin at the Beat Hotel, slipped on dogshit in the hall; the deal was cancelled. Later, Colombia Records wanted to market the Dream Machine as a lamp. Meeting with Colombia executives in 1965, Gysin (ever the magician) told them that vinyl records would soon be obsolete, replaced with optical discs that were read with a ray of light. He was not well received.
Since the 90s, the Dream Machine has become a kind of elitist status symbol, often found in the possession of West Coast media types and young celebrities. Kurt Cobain bought one shortly before his death. David Bowie, Iggy Pop and Paul McCartney all used it. Other aficionados include Marilyn Manson, Floria Sigismondi, Bruce Labruce, Nick Zinner of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Beck and DJ Spooky. You get your own fully crafted machine for $500 + $50 shipping . Of course, you can also build your own or download the app; with so many ways to experience it, perhaps now the Dream Machine will finally get the mass attention Gysin always believed it deserved as a simple, drug-free path to altered states of consciousness.
