Two freight trains have collided near the city of Panhandle, Texas. Emergency crews are responding to the scene, where the wreckage appears to be on fire.

The collision took place Tuesday morning, about five miles (8 km) east of Panhandle, alongside US Highway 60 towards Amarillo.

Little is known about the cause of the crash at this time. Unconfirmed reports say the collision was head-on.

Carson County officials are asking drivers to avoid the area, so the emergency crews can focus on rescue work. Police have complained that passing motorists are leaving their cars to take pictures of the accident, putting more people in danger, KCBD reported.

Both trains were identified as belonging to BNSF, one of the largest freight railroads in North America and a subsidiary of Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway Inc.

Treasure hunter Tommy Thompson who discovered the 'Ship of 'Gold' in 1988 and made millions remains on the lam two years after he vanished amid lawsuits from insurers, investors and his own crew

The two-year hunt for the man who recovered millions of dollars worth of sunken treasure only to disappear after being sued by investors is receiving renewed attention after a new expedition found the ship earlier this year.

Tommy Thompson was last seen by a maintenance worker, walking on the pool deck of his Florida mansion and wearing nothing more than eye glasses, leather shoes, socks and underwear.

National Cancer Institute Quietly Confirms Cannabis Can Cure Cancer

Apparently the left hand of this government doesn’t know what the right hand is doing, or more likely doesn’t want to know. With the easy prey of grabbing marijuana users in most states and locking them up in prisons for cheap labor while destroying families, there’s little motivation to curb that racket by dropping marijuana out of its DEA Schedule 1 Controlled Substance rating.

Schedule 1 includes drugs that are dangerous, addictive, and without any medical merit. The DEA needs to justify its budgetary funding and the FDA prefers rubber stamp approving pharmaceutical drugs that are far more dangerous than marijuana and far less effective. The FDA has to oblige their corporate clients to keep their licensure payments from Big Pharma rolling in.

Police have only identified the 33-year-old woman as the victim in the case, and have not made any arrests. The case will be presented to the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office for potential charges.

Washington fears Brexit will unravel its anti-Russia policy

Britain’s stunning referendum vote to leave the European Union has thrown a cat among the pigeons, not least in Washington, where it is feared that the “Brexit” could scupper its anti-Russian policy.

That tacit policy is a foundation of the postwar international order whereby Washington – thanks to its trusty British acolyte – has been able to exert hegemony over Europe. Nearly seven decades of American transatlantic domination are at risk of crumbling.

The unscheduled, hasty visit by US Secretary of State John Kerry to Brussels followed by London on Monday is a sure sign that Washington is alarmed at the historic decision by the British electorate to quit the EU – after 43-year membership of the bloc.

“Kerry urges Britain, EU to manage their divorce responsibly,” was how American news outlet ABC reported the diplomat’s detour. The outlet went on to say with a pretense of chivalry that Kerry’s concern was “for the sake of global markets and citizens”.

How the Pentagon is Preparing for a Tank War With Russia

These days, the charismatic director of the Army’s Capabilities Integration Center is knee-deep in a project called The Russia New Generation Warfare study, an analysis of how Russia is re-inventing land warfare in the mud of Eastern Ukraine. Speaking recently at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, D.C., McMaster said that the two-year-old conflict had revealed that the Russians have superior artillery firepower, better combat vehicles, and have learned sophisticated use of UAVs for tactical effect. Should U.S. forces find themselves in a land war with Russia, he said, they would be in for a rude, cold awakening.

“We spend a long time talking about winning long-range missile duels,” said McMaster. But long-range missiles only get you through the front door. The question then becomes what will you do when you get there.

DNC Platform Leaves Door Open for No-Fly Zone in Syria, Refuses to Call for End to Israeli Occupation

The final platform will not be written until the convention in Philadelphia next month – a process that could possibly open it to votes from a much wider pool of delegates on the floor.

‘The Case Against Peace’: Elites Manipulating Domestic Society With War

Stephen Walt, a world famous professor of international relations, has presented an interesting ‘case against peace‘ that might explain some of the most recent trends in international affairs.

Walt presents an argument that essential says that a state of war allows for domestic social cohesion to occur, because:
“When the wolf is at the door, domestic quarrels are put aside in order to deal with the more immediate danger.”

George Simmel, a sociologist, is also quoted by Walt and proceeds to explain how, in his opinion, ‘peace time’ can lead to domestic unrest:
“A group’s complete victory over its enemies is thus not always fortunate in a sociological sense. Victory lowers the energy which guarantees the unity of the group; and the dissolving forces, which are always at work, gain hold.”

 

It's getting harder to know who is funding political advertising at the state level as more money becomes anonymous or is filtered from one political action committee to another, a new study finds.

Buddhist leaders in NYC offer stark warning as increasing number of fake 'monks' in orange robes prey on tourists with elaborate scams

New York City Buddhist leaders are sounding the alarm to tourists to beware of the growing number of 'fake monks' on the city's streets.

Men in orange robes claiming to be Buddhist monks are approaching visitors to some of the city's most popular attractions, handing them shiny medallions and offering greetings of peace.

They then hit them up for donations to help them build a temple in Thailand, and are persistent if their demands are refused.

'The problem seems to be increasing,' said the Rev. TK Nakagaki, president of the Buddhist Council of New York, a group that represents nearly two dozen Buddhist temples. 'They are very aggressive and hostile if you don't give them money.'

'They’re not authentic. They’re not real. They’re playing on people’s heart strings,' said Michelle Dunson of the Buddhist Council of New York told CBS New York. 'It’s basically a scam like any other.'

A spotless sun: Incredible image shows solar activity at its quietest in 100 years - and some say it could trigger a mini ice age

During Solar Max, huge sunspots and intense solar flares are a daily occurrence. Auroras appear in Florida. Radiation storms knock out satellites.

The last such episode took place in the years around 2000-2001.

During Solar Minimum, the opposite occurs. Solar flares are almost non-existent while whole weeks go by without a single, tiny sunspot to break the monotony of the blank sun. This is what we are experiencing now.

The longest minimum on record, the Maunder Minimum of 1645-1715, lasted an incredible 70 years.

During this period, sunspots were rarely observed and the solar cycle seemed to have broken down completely.

The period of quiet coincided with the Little Ice Age, a series of extraordinarily bitter winters in Earth's northern hemisphere.

Parliament takes axe to 2nd EU referendum petition

A petition to nullify the UK’s EU referendum and hold another appear to be riddled with fraudulent data. Raw data examined reveals that many of the participants come from outside the UK, or use IP addresses outside the UK. Only UK or British citizens and residents can create or sign a petition, according to the rules. You can see the geographical breakdown here.

Some 39,411 signatories came from Vatican City, even though the city state has a permanent population of only 450. Over 23,000 voted from North Korea.

The House of Commons petitions committee is investigating the petition for fraud, and has already removed 77,000 “signatures” - but says the site was “not hacked”. The petition, ironically created weeks ago by a Leave campaigner, calls for the vote to be rerun if turnout was under 75 per cent, or the winning plurality was under 60 per cent.

Retired frigates to be target of live-fire tests at RIMPAC exercise

The retired frigate USS Thach will be sunk during Rim of the Pacific war games in July from fire including the first Harpoon missile shot from a littoral combat ship, a type of U.S. warship being deployed regularly to Singapore and the volatile South China Sea.

The Navy originally wanted 52 of the now controversial littoral combat ships, which were touted for their speed and shallow draft for operations in near-shore environments against pirates, mines and diesel submarines.

With the rise of China, however, concerns were raised about the ships’ armor and lethality, and the Pentagon reduced the total and is seeking a more robust frigate as a replacement.

While in Hawaii, the littoral combat ship USS Coronado will test the greater lethality of a Harpoon missile, which has the capability of destroying enemy ships 100 miles away, the Navy said. The Navy is seeking to arm all of its LCSs with over-the-horizon missiles.

Arrogant effrontery of those wailing for a second referendum

As far as many of the leaders of the Remain campaign are concerned, democracy is only to be respected if it produces what they want. Otherwise the result can, and should, be ignored.

This is what happened when the people of Ireland, Denmark and France made what the Establishment considered was the ‘wrong’ choice in previous referendums. Egged on by Brussels, pro-EU politicians in their own countries told them to go back and think again, which they obediently did.

Of course, I sympathise with those young people who feel something close to bereavement after the vote. I hope they will discover that no terrible rupture has taken place, that we can have a bright future, and that Great Britain has not, in fact, been towed away from the European continent.

But it would be an affront to democracy to overturn the result of a referendum which took place after a prolonged and generally well-informed debate.

An anti-gun politician has finally been put on the spot over this matter. Democratic Representative Charlie Rangel spoke to the Daily Caller on Tuesday, in regards to a recent scandal involving four NYPD officials who were arrested for accepting bribes in exchange for police escorts and gun licenses, among other perks.

When asked by The Daily Caller his thoughts on the difficulty of getting a concealed carry permit in New York City and how rare it is for such permits to be issued by the NYPD, Rangel replied, “I’m glad to hear you say that very few people get it.”

“We don’t need that many guns,” he continued. “I didn’t know that briberies were involved in getting a gun, and that is wrong, but overall, if it is difficult to get a concealed weapon permit, I’m glad to hear that.”

Rangel went on to say that his own law-abiding constituents in Harlem shouldn’t have to carry guns for their own protection. However, the same rules don’t apply to the political elite.

“The FBI has infiltrated all major and mid-major activist and movements in the United States over the last 60 years. Every single one whether a right-wing or a left-wing,” Henningsen said, adding that many of the groups have had “FBI informants in the top positions.

That smelly kid who is always able to get explosives and wants you to blow something up? THAT is your FBI informant. Deal with him or her accordingly.

TTIP ‘doesn’t respect EU interests’: French PM Valls says ‘non’ to transatlantic treaty

France’s Prime Minister Manuel Valls has dismissed the possibility of an agreement on the US-EU transatlantic trade deal, since it goes against the interests of the European Union.
“No free trade agreement should be concluded if it does not respect EU interests. Europe should be firm. France will be vigilant about this,” Valls said addressing members of the governing Socialist Party on Sunday, AFP reported.

“I can tell you frankly, there cannot be a transatlantic treaty agreement. This agreement is not on track,” Valls added.

CIA weapons supplied to the so-called “moderate” Syrian rebels via Jordan have been “systematically stolen” to be sold on the black market, a new report based on testimonies of American and Jordanian officials to the NYT and Al Jazeera has revealed.

The large shipments of CIA and Saudi Arabian arms included Kalashnikov assault rifles, mortars and rocket-propelled grenades, which intelligence agencies bought in bulk in the Balkans and elsewhere around Eastern Europe.

How The Dairy Industry Tricked Us Into Believing We Need Milk

Got Milk? We sure hope not. Despite being a somewhat tasty addition to coffee, tea, and delectable treats, the ingredient – when pasteurized – is highly toxic to the human body.

In fact, physicians such as Dr. Willet, who has conducted many studies and reviewed the research on the topic, believe milk to be more of a detriment to the human body than an aid.

The £4m school conman who lavished cash on four women: Fraudster is jailed for nine years in Britain's biggest ever education scam

A ‘dishonest, greedy’ and possibly bigamous school accountant has been jailed for nine years for stealing £4.1million of taxpayers’ money – and lavishing it on four women.

In Britain’s biggest ever education fraud, school accounts manager Sam Kayode, 59 – a part-time pastor – spent the cash on his real wife, a second ‘wife’ and two alleged mistresses.

He bought luxury cars including a Mercedes, an Audi TT sports car and an Infiniti, and is also feared to have sent much of the money to his homeland of Nigeria.

DEALING WITH A FINANCIAL CRISIS UNDER COVER OF BREXIT CHAOS: ECB BLOWS €400BN ON “BREXIT BLACK FRIDAY” BANK BAILOUTS

Remember TARP, the Troubled Asset Relief Program that the US Congress approved to bail out banks and other companies during the Financial Crisis? $700 billion were authorized, later reduced to $475 billion. The Treasury eventually dispersed $432 billion. I bring this up because the ECB bailed out the European banks with more than TARP, in just one day: on Brexit Black Friday.

The ECB saw what was happening to the shares of the largest banks on that propitious day. It saw a blooming financial crisis:

But when it comes to his long view on interest rates, bond yields and the economy, Major, who’s proven to be something of a savant as HSBC Holdings Plc’s head of fixed-income research, says Brexit is ultimately little more than a sideshow. Long after the din from the U.K. vote subsides (and regardless of what happens in the U.S. presidential election), Major says issues that, at times, have been decades in the making will conspire to depress global growth and keep rates at rock-bottom levels for years to come.

Germany Is Destroying Itself While NATO Promotes Aggression

Germany is disassembling itself, says Willy Wimmer, former State Secretary of the CDU (German Christian Democratic Party) and its „conscience“. For 33 years Wimmer was a member of the Bundestag (German Federal Parliament). Now he is one of the harshest critics of Angela Merkel in Germany. These are excerpts from his recent interview with Markus Gärtner, where Wimmer talked about the recent statement of German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier, who slammed NATO for warmongering against Russia.

Armenia is Swarmed by Western NGOs

The tactics of employing non-governmental organizations (NGOs) for the preparation of so-called “color revolutions” in North Africa, the Middle East and a number of former Soviet states has been the modus operandi of the US and its satellites, which have been thoroughly discussed in various NEO articles.

It’s curious that these NGOs who are heavily sponsored by Washington choose to act precisely in those moments when a specific state begins resisting pressure applied on it by the so-called Western World. This resistance often is manifested as a reluctance to support certain projects that were put forward by Washington.

If we are to talk about post-Soviet regions, all Western NGOs, and American ones in particular, have been particularly active in Central Asian and Caucasus states over recent years in a bid to launch “color revolutions” across the majority of them.

Putin: "David Cameron has a low level of political culture"

UK Prime Minister David Cameron, having stated that “Putin will be happy” with the results of the referendum on leaving the EU, has a low level of political culture. This was stated by President Vladimir Putin on June 24th while concluding his visit to Tashkent where he hosted the SCO summit.

“I believe that this is none other than an inappropriate attempt to influence public opinion in his own country. Especially after the vote, in my opinion, nobody has the right to say something about the role of Russia. This is none other than a manifestation of a low level of political culture.”

Barclays and RBS shares suspended amid Brexit crash

Two British banks were briefly suspended from trading in London after heavy losses triggered emergency measures that froze their shares.

Both banks confirmed their shares were suspended, but did not comment further.

A Stunning Email About Brexit Vote As Elites Panic And Global Collapse Edges Closer

“Please, please, please, do not listen to the distorted views of the mainstream media. Yes, immigration is a major problem. But not THE REASON why the we voted to leave the EU. We as a people have demanded our country back from the unelected elites which have become our masters. An unelected EU government with no opposition, with the power to make our laws and determine how we live our lives. Immigration is a secondary topic, the economy is secondary, if we are worse off we will live with our decision. If we suffer, so be it. Our freedom and the freedom of our children is much more important. "

State TV Poland: Germany and France proposed the formation of a "European superstate"

• Poland TVP claimed that countries which agree to the German-French superstate actually lose the right to own foreign policy, its army, special services, the criminal code, the special tax system, their own money and its central bank

POLAND state television TVP has announced that Germany and France are preparing the project "European superstate which is to replace the European Union".

She relied on a document which German Foreign Minister - Frank-Walter Steinmeier - be it in Prague presents the foreign ministers of the Czech, Polish, Slovak and Hungarian.

The website TVP has published a document of 9 pages for which it is claimed that it is prepared Steinmeier and Minister of Foreign Affairs of France Jean-Marc Er.

TV Poland argues that countries that harbor on the German-French superstate actually lose the right to own army, special services, the criminal code, the special tax system, their own money and its central bank.

THE ALL-OUT FAILED ATTEMPT OF THE “ELITE” TO DEFEAT BREXIT

Despite the constant propaganda against the exit, polls indicated that more favored leaving the EU than remaining until a female Member of Parliament, Jo Cox, was killed by a man that a witness said shouted “Brexit.” Cox was an opponent of leaving the EU. Cox’s Murder was in fact used to drive the aforementioned propaganda.

The British government, headed by David Cameron, and its prostituted media apparatus used Cox’s murder to drive home the propaganda that violent racists were behind Brexit. However, other witnesses gave a different report.

The leftist Guardian, which led with the propaganda line, did report later in its account that, “Other witnesses said the attack was launched after the MP became involved in an altercation involving two men near where she held her weekly surgery.” Of course, we will never know, because Cox’s murder was too valuable of a weapon against Brexit.

That virus was said to cause many bad things including microcephaly, a development distortion of the head of unborn babies, if the mother was infected with Zika during pregnancy.

Former CIA Agent to Americans: Time to Talk About What’s Really Causing Terrorism

Waking Times Media

In the wake of yet another terrorist attack, a former CIA counter-terrorism agent has shared her insight into what causes such tragic, intentional carnage. Amaryllis Fox spoke for the first time publicly with Al Jazeera Plus (AJ+) about terrorism, misguided narratives on why it happens, and the underlying motivators driving it — ultimately urging Americans and those in power to adopt a different approach in combating the ongoing violence.

It’s Still the Iraq War, Stupid

This fault line is very well defined. The manufactured row about “anti-Semitism” in the Labour Party shows exactly the same split. In my researches, 100% of those who have promoted accusations of anti-Semitism were supporters of the Iraq War and/or had demonstrable links to professional pro-Israel lobby groups. 100% of those accused of anti-Semitism were active opponents of the Iraq War. Never underestimate the Blairite fury at being shown not just to be liars but to be wrong. Iraq is their Achilles heel and they are extremely touchy about it.

Let’s ban old people from voting

The best part of the Brexit victory is the ensuing head-explosions of the elites, the entitled, the Europhiles on the gravy train and the young’uns.

Here is a piece from The Times, no less, which actually played a fairly straight bat during the campaign.

The message is that old people are going to die and they won’t have to live with the consequences of Brexit, so they probably should be disenfranchised. It’s right, you know.

You really have to laugh, particularly as it is written by someone called Giles.

David Cameron told to get out NOW to stop Remain MPs blocking Brexit

DAVID Cameron was last night under intense pressure to accelerate his departure from Downing Street as concerns grew that a stitch up is being plotted to try to scupper Britain’s exit from the EU.

As the Prime Minister prepared to formally announce the next steps in the Brexit process today, senior MPs including Cabinet ministers insisted that a successor dedicated to severing Britain’s ties with Brussels is appointed as soon as possible.

Former Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith, a leading “leave” campaigner during the referendum debate, led calls for the next prime minister to be a convinced Brexiteer.

"Whoever takes up that job, it would be very, very difficult for the public who have voted for leaving the European Union to find that they then had a prime minister who actually was opposed to leaving the European Union," he said.
