POLLACK:

Ladies and gentlemen, this is Scott Pollack, Chief Editor of The Critical Post Chicago, reporting. Welcome to another edition of The Critical Post – Chicago Report.

Thanks again ladies and gentlemen for tuning us in on our official You Tube Broadcast Channel, we appreciate it. If you can remember to go over to the head page of The Critical Post – Chicago and click on an ad, we’d appreciate your participation there. It costs you nothing to get us some small remuneration for our expenses. Google will pay us. There is another new episode of The Bittersweet Records Radio Hour on the head page of The Post, we hope you enjoy that as well.

We’d like to welcome our new subscribers at our You Tube Broadcast channel, we appreciate your kind attentions and we hope we can live up to your high standards and expectations, for what we term as the only non-propaganda news channel in the country, that we’re aware of.

Our bias, in terms of editorial view is private property rights, anti IRS confiscatory policies, and in terms of investigations, exposing judicial malfeasance and corruptions.

Coming up after this broadcast an editorial about Britain’s exit from the European Union and an opinion on Tariffs. Another report, will be our review of an investigation regarding assertions made by Ms. Dawana Hooper Breedlove Samimi and Iran’s connections to the US Prison system and the incidents in her life which led her to The Critical Post’s attention. That interview transcript is quite extensive and was prepared by The Critical Post’s own Julia May.

Ladies and gentlemen, here’s the latest headlines

DOMESTIC TERRORISM AGAIN IS DOMINATING THE AIRWAVES IN SUPPORT OF THE WAR ON TERROR

A mass shooting in an Orlando, Florida nightclub popular with gay men called Pulse, began flooding the airwaves. Their are several reports which have conflicting numbers as to the fatalities total. At latest count, 50 people dead, including the gunman, and more than 53 wounded. The gunman has been identified by US journalism channels as one Mr. Omar Mateen, an American citizen of Afghani ethnic origin. As reported, the gunman walked into the nightclub armed with a rifle and started shooting. He took hostages into a bathroom in the nightclub. He was subsequently engaged, shot and killed in a standoff with Orlando’s SWAT Teams unit.

Orlando’s police chief, John Mina, said he was in possession of multiple pieces of weaponry. An independent records search found he held a Florida security officer license and a state firearms license.

In other reports Mateen’s father insists to those recording his statements that his son was not involved with any terrorist activity, claiming his son became enraged when seeing gay men kissing each other.

Mr. Matten was born in America in 1986 to Afghan parents in New York City. Mateen had committed himself to ISIS before carrying out the attack by calling 911, federal officials are reported to have said. In other reports, the terrorist called emergency 911 swearing his allegiance to Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, law enforcement officials have said. Several more reports have now come onto the wires claiming that the gunman’s ex-wife has admitted to authorities that he was battering, suggesting he was a serial domestic violence and abuser, and “that he was not a stable person”.

It is also reported by several journalism outlets that the Islamic State has been calling for attacks to be carried out on the American mainland targeting the gay community over the past few months. Of further note, it is interesting to state that as of now, no one has reported how the gunman was able to get into the nightclub with the weapons before he started shooting.

Almost immediately after the attack British journalism channels began to propagandize and politicize the event by publishing smear pieces in their national journalism channels about the AR-15 rifle used by the gunman to carry out the attack. These publishing’s are obviously PR hit pieces attacking the 2nd Amendment to the United States Constitution and an attempt by British journalism to continue to weigh in on the American debate. Not to be outdone, The President and several political figures including Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump were known to have made statements emanating from their Twitter accounts.

There are also reports stating that FBI authorities were monitoring the young man as far back as 2013 and 2014 but was not singled out for any further contact previous to the incident. The reports do not state how many times over two, indicated by the years cited about FBI encounters, that the FBI had interviewed the man. Reports are claiming it is the largest terrorist event since September 11, 2001, topping the San Bernadino of 14 fatalities a couple of months ago.

It cannot be known, whether or not, the man was subject to MK Ultra mind control techniques used in those FBI encounters, known to be used on subjects like Sirhan Sirhan of the Bobby Kennedy assasination. Therefore it cannot be known, if this man was a Manchurian candidate, or a self radicalized malcontent as the current reports would seem to suggest. In this particular case, the normalcy bias would have the latter case stand.

MOVEMENTS IN THE GLOBAL REGIME OF INTERNATIONAL ECONOMIC INTERDEPENDENCE

ANOTHER PR TRIAL BALLOON SURFACES IN WESTERN JOURNALISM AND SWITZERLAND

Six months ago, one of the analysts we listen to here at The Critical Post told a black talk show host working in Washington DC, one Mr. Carl Nelson, on The Carl Nelson show which airs in drive-time hours in America’s capitol city, that he’d heard there were conversations being held behind the scenes that board members of corporations in highly monetized world-class transnational corporations were publishing whitepapers which is considering giving everyone in the world a guaranteed monthly stipend of between 1,000 to 2,000 dollars a month.

On Sunday June 4th ago in Switzerland, a referendum was held in that country, asking for a yeah or nay about a nationwide guaranteed income. About 77 percent of voters rejected a plan to give a basic monthly income of 2,500 Swiss francs, or about $2,560, to each adult, and 625 francs for each child under 18, regardless of employment status, to fight poverty and social inequality and guarantee a “dignified” life to everyone.

Switzerland was the first country to vote on such a universal basic income plan, but other countries and cities either have been considering the idea or have started trial programs.

Finland is set to introduce a pilot program for a random sample of about 10,000 adults who will each receive a monthly handout of 550 euros, about $625. The intent is to turn the two-year trial into a national plan if it proves successful.

In the Netherlands, Utrecht is leading a group of municipalities that are experimenting with similar pilot projects.

In the United States, the idea of a guaranteed income has gained some traction in the run-up to the presidential election in November. It has been promoted by some Democrats who are demanding more social justice, but it also has some right-wing advocates who see it as a better alternative to government welfare programs.

last night again, on the evening show of conservative talk show Michael Medved, he cited a noted conservative floating the same suggestion.

TRADE WAR IN STEEL MANUFACTURING IS CONTINUING

Over the past few months that we’ve been tracking reports coming in across the globe from various journalism outlets, it appears that it’s a likely conclusion that China had initially started the trade war in the steel market and now commerce bureaus in the US and Europe are ramping up their efforts to deal with the alleged unfair practices and rolled steel product dumping of both varities known as hot and cold rolled product.

Recently an EU commission has launched an investigation into whether the communist government of China has been subsidizing its manufacturers causing a glut in the world market which has effectively begin to shut down production in Britain and other centers in Europe. In response to British measures China has imposed a 46% tariff on high tech steel manufactured product into China from the UK.

Japan and South Korea manufacturers are also accused of the practice by the US and its allies in Europe. In response to everything the US has raised its tariffs on steel product coming from China as mush as 522% in the past few months.

The US Commerce Department said recently in a statement that dumping margins were 266 percent for Chinese imports and 71 percent for Japanese cold-rolled imports. Dumping margin means how much advantage the dumping nation has in terms of competitive advantage over the targeted importer such as the United States.

Steel products of this variety are used in everything from cars to electrical appliances.

From other reports as early as 2012, concerning litigation’s overseen by the World Trade Organization which properly termed is an International Governing Organization, it appears that the trade war began in that year by imposing large tariffs on British steel tubing exports to China.

POSSIBLE EFFECTS OF THE TRADE WAR IS FELT IN THE US JOBS MARKET

The Bureau of Labor Statistics has stated that over the past 4 months, manufacturing has lost 53,000 jobs. In May, employment in durable goods fell by 18,000, led by 7,000 job losses in machinery. In January 2015, employment reached a peak in machinery and since then, has declined by 60,000. Mining and oil and gas machinery counted for over half of the job loss during this period. In May, employment also declined in furniture and related products by 3,000 jobs.

The taxes of 522% specifically apply to Chinese-made cold-rolled flat steel, which is used in car manufacturing, shipping containers and construction.

The US Commerce Department ruling comes amid heightened trade tensions between the two sides over several products, including chicken parts. There is also a dispute over US exported pork livestock products to China over the use of a specific de-licing powder sprayed on hogs to prevent disease in the animals before being butchered and released into the general population for consumption.

However, steel is an especially sensitive issue.

US and European steel producers claim China is distorting the global market and undercutting them by dumping its excess supply abroad.

The Commerce Department also levied anti-dumping duties of 71% on Japanese-made cold-rolled steel.

ON THE PHYSICAL FRONT PERTAINING TO INTERNATIONAL TRADE

Several dozens of reports have hit the wires that cite Russian as well as Chinese jet fighters on numerous occasions have been buzzing American & British surveillance planes in the skies over international waters, or in other cases flying very close to US and British airspace. In another case, there have been reports of a Russian submarines being intercepted by British vessels in their naval fleet. As well, it is reported that the British claim they’re trying to steal secrets pertaining to the British Trident submarine class of deep sea vehicles.

All of these reports have been hitting the wires after the 2012 United States budget deal concerning a continuing budget resolution, wherein sequester has been implemented and reducing spending on the military in America by a 10% reduction i9n spending across the board.

In an interview on another channel we monitor, a former Reagan Administration official, Paul Craig Roberts, had suggested that when American diplomatic authorities do not get the concessions they want from either Chinese or Russian diplomats, that they are automatically labeled as a threat to the security of The United States. Mr. Roberts asserted these are ludicrous claims and has nothing to do with reality.

He said that, on the heels of asserting that a British General Sir Richard Shirreff, former allied commander of NATO until 2014, had stated that its entirely plausible we may have a nuclear war with Russia. This comes on the heels of the British General’s subsequent publishing of a novel called 2017: War with Russia, in which nuclear war breaks out with Russia over the Baltic nations next year.

According to Mr. Roberts, this is indefensible, that a British General would suggest such an outcome openly, he said, which is directly provocational to Russian authorites, stating: “If you were a Russian Military Councel adviser: What would that statement make you think”?

The British General said: ‘The chilling fact is that because Russia hard-wires nuclear thinking and capability to every aspect of their defence capability, this would be nuclear war.’

He added ‘We need to judge President Putin by his deeds not his words. Ruthermore he stated: ‘He has invaded Georgia, he has invaded the Crimea, he has invaded Ukraine. He has used force and got away with it. He concluded: ‘In a period of tension, an attack on the Baltic states… is entirely plausible.’

The question this anchor desk has, in light of Mr. Roberts remarks: Is this a PR trial ballon to suggest that nuclear war is an option which western alliance populations should come to grips with.

Mr. Roberts states: “These nuclear weapons are hydrogen bomb warheads. They are 17,000 times more powerful than the bombs dropped on Japan to end the second world war”. He further states: That if 10% of these weapons were deployed from both sides of the conflict, nuclear bomb engineers have declared, there would be no life left on earth in the aftermath.

Another question this anchor desk would have is British General Shireff, separately, a change agent provocateur put into the field by clandestine semantical operations, as propagandists for promoting a growing sentiment of fear and helplessness in the western civilized world?

This particular piece of journalism by the western international press has been totally ignored on the mass broadcast channels here in America.

It is well know to this anchor desk, that PR trial balloons of this nature are always floated months, perhaps even years by the journalism channels before anything of substance in the direction of the report surfaces as physical fact.

THE ONGOING BATTLE ON CAPITOL HILL WOMEN TO BE REQUIRED TO REGISTER FOR THE DRAFT

Senator John McCain tried to slip in an amendment provsion in the current version of the National Defense Authorization Act, tor require women to register with the Selective Service, even after the House of Representatives had earlier struck the provision in their version of the NDAA.

A few days ago, Sen McCain took to the senate floor excoriating certain senators for not backing the NDAA as is amended. Senator Mike Lee of Utah has filed an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that would remove the provision and block any court, including the Supreme Court, from hearing cases about who must register with the Selective Service System.

Secretary of Defense Ash Carter announced in December that the Pentagon would open all combat roles to women.

The draft, which ended in 1973, has been in the spotlight since the Pentagon began opening more roles to female soldiers.

A Rasmussen Reports poll released earlier this year found that 49 percent of all likely U.S. voters think women should be required to register for the draft, compared to 44 percent who disagree.

A STATISTICAL MODEL PREDICTS DON TRUMP WILL BE THE NEXT PRESIDENT OF THE UNTED STATES

Helmut Norpoth, a professor of political science at Stony Brook University, has developed a statistical model that predicts a 97 percent to 99 percent chance that Trump will win the 2016 presidential election.

Norpoth’s model has correctly predicted the outcome of every single presidential election since 1912 – save one, the election of 1960, which some believe was rigged. It uses a candidate’s performance in their party’s primary coupled with electoral cycle patterns to determine the likely outcome of the general election.

BAYER AG MAKES A BID TO BUY MONSANTO

Bayer AG offered $62 billion to buy Monsanto Co. The German company on said it had told Monsanto it’s willing to pay $122 a share in cash.

Buying Monsanto would allow Bayer to tap growing demand at a time when farmers must boost productivity to feed an estimated 10 billion people globally by 2050. Bayer Chief Executive Officer Werner Baumann has suggested that notion will convince skeptical investors of the value of the deal — and help overcome public backlash at home against Monsanto’s genetically modified seeds — as he seeks to pull off the biggest corporate takeover ever by a German company.

If Bayer AG succeeds with the bid and takeover, it would make the German corporation the undisputed leader and largest producer in the world for seed products.

We’ll keep an eye out for more developments about this item.

And finally…

A SCIENTIST’S DAUGHTER MAY HAVE SUGGESTED ANOTHER CURE FOR CANCER

British research scientist’s daughter may have suggested a cost effective measure to combat cancer over dinner one evening a while back. The 8 year olds name is Camilla Lisanti.

Over dinner one evening, her father asked her what she would do to cure cancer, prompting the little girl to remark, “you mean like when I have a sore throat,” Which in-turn suggested to her scientist parents to look at antibiotics as a cure.

Professor Lisanti and his wife Federica Sotgia, a husband and wife cancer research team at Manchester University, tested the theory at their lab and were surprised when several cheap and widely used antibiotics destroyed the cancerous cells.

Some antibiotics stop cells from making mitochondria, which supply cells with energy.

Cancer stem cells, which create tumors and keep them alive, often have high numbers of mitochondria.

Their research showed that four common antibiotics, which can cost as little as six pence a day compared to some of the latest drugs which can cost hundreds of pounds, killed these stem cells in samples from breast, prostate, lung, ovarian, pancreatic, skin and brain tumors.

Crucially, the antibiotics did not harm healthy cells. Professor Lisanti now believes that antibiotics could prove to be an inexpensive and safe method in treating cancer, thanks to his daughter’s suggestion.

Dr Alan Worsley, Cancer Research UK’s senior science communications officer, told journalism channels: “There’s no indication from this work that these particular antibiotics would kill cancer cells in patients, or what sort of side effects there might be. Some antibiotics have been known to have anti-cancer effects since the 1960’s and are a well-established part of cancer treatment today, alongside other chemo-therapies.”

Again this is Scott Pollack, Chief Editor of The Critical Post – Chicago, reporting. Thanks again for watching another Critical Post – Chicago Report.

We’ll be back soon.

That is all.
