For the last couple of days, I noticed recent articles on this site not appearing, though I had seen them earlier. After reviewing the list of scripts in the Noscript add-on in Firefox browser, I found many strange scripts authorised. After blocking these, the latest 11 articles reappeared. Someone must be unhappy with these articles.

Propaganda tells us that pogroms, elimination of alternatives/dissent and regression are typical of Communism, as in the case of the Khmer Rouge. Is this true? Read the bloody history of Indonesia.

Star Sunday column Curious Cook by Chris Chan dated 24/9/17 highlighted this: – Safe, original soya sauce takes months to produce; much of it comes from Japan and China. – Most of the “soya sauce” being sold is HSS (hydrolysed soya sause) produced in a couple of days. It contains 2 very dangerous contaminants, especially capable of destroying the liver. – EU strictly monitors the soya sauce it permits. Other facts: – Bolehland labels do not addess this issue. – Some local varieties do not mention soya as an ingredient; if they are mere flavouring and colour, they may be… Read more »

Is North Korea an unspeakable, hopeless dictatorship?

I leave it to you to work out why there is mounting interest in and unilateral enforcement (delegated to “tech” businesses) to censor “fake” news.

What sort of “superpower” are our leaders doing the tango with? Syria found chemical weapons from USA and UK within areas it had rid of supposedly “moderate” terrorists.

Another case of international disobedience to the Empire, this time on drugs.

At this rate, WHO reps or leaders may suffer “unfortunate” accidents.

Making money from misery (ill health): Now there is a scare over poisoned eggs in Europe. China rejected our birds nest. Before that, Singapore rejected out veg. Yet, we rarely hear of domestic crackdowns on local or imported food. What about the tainted beef from Brazil. Is US beef any better – free from mad cow disease? A few years ago, Bolehland legalised imports of propretary, GMO soya. Despite the resistance of Codex Alimentarius, WHO condemned GMO as a strong carcinogen about a year ago. The dangers include not just the food molecules but unidentified microbes and especially the proprietary… Read more »

Imperial propaganda tells us that Russia is a tyranny run by the world’s richest despot, and that it “intervenes” in other countries. Check out the latest of the annual sessions for public questions this “dictator” held, and decide for yourself:

18 moths ago, the authorities declared a “moratorium” on (completely illegal) bauxite mining in Kuantan. Since then, Bolehland has exported 9 million tonnes to China, supposedly from stock at the port, but the stock has not been reduced.

Why is Qatar suddenly labelled a bad boy?
http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/47329.htm

Note: Being by a US person, this article is ignorant of regional rivalry.

Note: Reader’s Alert would be a lot simpler if loading other (past) comments was optional or done in segments (on multiple pages).

A broader, more ominous view of the same issue: Qatar.

The ugly truth of an open immigration policy in Sweden:
What Is Sweden Trying to Hide?
http://www.conservativezone.com/articles/what-is-sweden-trying-to-hide/
Donald Trump recently cited Sweden as an example of the dangers of open borders. While the media did their best to paint him as an idiot and maniac, widespread riots seemed to verify the President’s statement. Sweden repeatedly states that everything is fine internally, but riots and the burning of property don’t usually happen with content populations.

What is really happening?

Germany and Sweden are cold countries – very cold for people from hot countries. Is the mass migration across mulriple seas and borders to these specific destinations accidental or casual? For the last stretch into Sweden from Finland, enterpreneurs even provided bicycles for hire; the immigrants left them at the destination. As for the riots, though Sweden followed EU rules in accepting the immigrants, they could only provide minimum help – very expensive in a cold country. Moreover, the later are culturally alien, abrasive and unused to the independent lifestyle. So, just as in Germany, some of them realised they… Read more »

Climate change threatens to wash away couple’s history
http://edition.cnn.com/2017/03/02/us/heart-of-the-matter-climate-change-louisiana/index.html
The US Department of Housing and Urban Development awarded $48 million to the state of Louisiana in 2016 to relocate the community to higher ground, off the island — making the residents of Isle de Jean Charles the country’s first-ever climate refugees.
