Yves Saint Laurent's Knit Bridal Gown: A Famously Bizarre Fuzzy Cocoon

French fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent was known for pushing the envelope with the styles he created under his brand beginning in the 1960s. One thing he enjoyed doing was looking for fashion inspiration outside of Paris, even outside of Europe. In 1965, he took inspiration from the iconic Russian nesting dolls to design a wedding gown that still has people talking today. Unfortunately, it's for all the wrong reasons. For such a well-respected and influential fashion designer, most of the world believes that Yves Saint Laurent missed the mark with his knit bridal gown of 1965. Let's take a closer look at this crime of fashion.

War Elephants Were So Scary, They Created War Pigs

Always keen to get a leg up on the enemy, military leaders have often looked to animals to give them a wartime advantage. Horses, naturally, were trained to carry soldiers into battle. The stories of Hannibal taking war elephants over the Alps during the Second Punic War are legendary. But did you know that several other animals were also used in ancient warfare? Monkeys, dogs, rhinoceroses, and even cats were used for military purposes. It was the enormous elephants, however, that proved to be formidable---that is, until clever commanders discovered the best way to disrupt the army of elephants was with their own four-legged troops. This is the story of how war pigs were used to battle war elephants in ancient Rome. Yes, really!

A Grieving Father Is Standing Trial for Criticizing a Judge on Facebook

A Michigan man was jailed last month on a $500,000 bond after writing critical posts on Facebook about the judge who denied him custody of his son. Jonathan Vanderhagen, 35, is now standing trial for malicious use of telecommunication services.

The saga began two years ago when Vanderhagen petitioned Macomb County Circuit Court Judge Rachel Rancilio for sole custody of his 2-year-old son, Killian. Vanderhagen argued that Killian's biological mother was unfit to be Killian's sole guardian. Judge Rancilio disagreed and the child's mother was able to retain custody.

Shortly after the custody dispute, Killian passed away in his mother's care from what authorities concluded was a preexisting medical condition.

Pompeo inadvertently admitted the Iran crisis is a 'direct result' of Trump's actions

As Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Wednesday defended the Trump administration's strategy toward Iran, he inadvertently acknowledged the recent tensions were a "direct result" of the president's decision to pull the US from the 2015 nuclear deal.
Pompeo was trying to make the case that things would be worse if the president hadn't withdrawn from the deal, which he called an "enormous failure."
But one former US official told Insider, "There is a direct line you can draw from Trump's violation of the Iran deal and the risk of conflict today."

Will Russia Be Driven From the West?

STEPHEN F. COHEN SEPTEMBER 18, 2019
In our times, as I also pointed out two years ago, a Russia departed, or driven, from the West would likely mean “a Russia—with its vast territories, immense natural resources, world-class sciences, formidable military and nuclear power, and UN Security Council veto—allied solidly with all the other emerging powers that are not part the US-NATO Western ‘world order’ and even opposed to it. And, of course, it would drive Russia increasingly afar from the West’s liberalizing influences, back toward its more authoritarian traditions.”

What Trump’s Missteps on Iran Have Wrought

The United States has become a hi-tech Blackbeard.

ISTANBUL – The drone attack on Saudi Arabia oil facilities on September 14 is jolting the entire Middle East, the latest incident in a months-long battle between the Trump Administration and Iran. Yemen’s Houthi movement claimed credit for the devastating attack that shut down half of Saudi Arabia’s oil production. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo blames Iran for the attack, while Iran has categorically denied it.
Let’s not forget that the Trump Administration started this low-level war by withdrawing from the Iran nuclear accord. The U.N. Security Council voted unanimously to ratify the agreement, so the U.S. stands in violation of UN resolutions and international law.

US drone kills 30 Afghan civilians instead of Daesh terrorists

A US drone strike that was supposed to take out members of the Daesh terrorist group in Afghanistan has instead killed at least 30 farm workers who were taking a break after a day's labor, officials say.

The attack on Wednesday night also injured 40 people as it targeted tents pitched near pine nut fields at the mountainous Wazir Tangi in eastern Nangarhar province, three officials confirmed to Reuters on Thursday.

"The workers had lit a bonfire and were sitting together when a drone targeted them," tribal elder Malik Rahat Gul told Reuters over the phone.

The owner of the fields said at least 150 workers were resting when the attack happened. Many of them remained missing, he added.

Israel: The only Jewish ghetto in the Middle East

"The results from the 18 September Israeli elections have confirmed what many of us have known for a long while: the Jewish state is an ultra-nationalist right-wing swamp. Israel is more hawkish than ever. There is not a single Jewish Israeli left-wing party. The Democratic Party is led and mentored by a war criminal. What is left of Israel’s Labour Party has very little to do with peace, harmony and reconciliation. In fact, that party is also led by a person wanted for war crimes...">>

Centuries-Old Dentures Made From Real Human Teeth

Minozzi’s team has been working at the monastery of San Francesco, in Lucca, Italy, a Tuscan city that dates back to the Etruscans. The excavations included the tombs of the Guinigi family, one of the city’s most famous and powerful. The tomb contains the remains about 100 people, buried there over the course of time, so it’s not possible to precisely date the dentures from the context in which they were found.

US Patriots Couldn’t Repel Attack on Saudi Oil Facilities Due to Low Efficiency – Russian MoD Source

Saudi Aramco refineries were hit hard in a drone attack, claimed by Yemeni Houthis, crippling Saudi crude output for several days. In the wake of the attack, US military command for the Middle East suggested sending more air defence missile systems to Saudi Arabia after existing ones failed to foil the strike.

Some 88 Patriot systems deployed in Saudi Arabia failed to repel attack on Saudi Aramco oil facilities, letting dozens of drones and guided missiles get through defences, a high-ranking source in the Russian Defence Ministry said. The source dismissed the excuse that the US Secretary of State gave to explain the Patriot fiasco, noting that in fact the American air defence system simply has low efficiency

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Wait one minute, did I just read that correctly?!?

Then please answer this question; are our American military just as vulnerable as were the Saudis when these attacks happened?!?

And the best and brightest US engineers who have developed these US military systems got overwhelmed... by a bunch of allegedly "primitive drones"?!?

So, President Trump, what is wrong with this picture?!? ABSOLUTELY BLOODY EVERYTHING.

Mr. President, you and Vice President Pence, need to "work the phones" of all your contributors in the military defense industry, and there should be, immediately, (private) conferences on why the US had a 100% failure rate in Saudi Arabia, where the need for these damned systems is desperately critical in order to protect the oil infrastructure here, and the US failed...miserably.

This cannot, sir, cannot happen again, because if it did, any foreign buyer, thinking about buy US-made weaponry may well march right out of the negotiating room, and into either Russia's or China's embassy in their countries, to discuss buying weapons... which actually work.

VACCINE MANDATES FOR EVERYONE, EVERYWHERE - A GLOBALLY COORDINATED AGENDA

SOURCE: TECHNOCRACY.NEWS

Technocracy’s endgame to use its ‘science of social engineering’ for the sake of total social control includes the entire field of healthcare, including globally mandated vaccines. ? TN Editor

In the United States, those who are vaccine risk-aware have much to be concerned about right now. More and more states—and many legislators from both political parties—are displaying a willingness to impose heavy-handed vaccine mandates that trample on religious, parental and human rights—including the precious right to “security of person” guaranteed by Article 3 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

What some Americans may not realize is that the current push for mandates is playing out not just in the U.S. but in other countries as well, reflecting a broader—and indeed, global—agenda.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would ask all of you who are parents, when your doctor's secretary tries to line up a series of vaccination appointments for your kid, ask, please, where they can find exactly the information on that vaccine which every doctor gets, either as an insert, or on the package per se.

Both the pharmaceutical houses, and the doctors who prescribe these drugs, should give you every right to know what is in it, and what the side effects can be.

WHOOPS, MY FINGER SLIPPED! HAWAIIANS PANIC AS POLICE TRIGGER FALSE TSUNAMI WARNING DURING TRAINING

SOURCE: RT
n a somewhat disturbing case of deja vu, the emergency warning sirens sounded in several parts of Hawaii early Wednesday evening, evoking memories of January’s false ballistic missile alert.
The alarm was inadvertently set off during Honolulu Police Department dispatcher training, which for some bizarre reason was being done on live equipment rather than with training software.

“I just want to apologize [to] the public,” Police Chief Susan Ballard said in an interview with Hawaii News Now. “It was just a very [simple] mistake. We need to do better.”

In this instance, it took 12 minutes for state agencies to confirm to the public that it was a false alarm, compared with the 28-minute delay in January.

***NO TSUNAMI THREAT*** We have received phone calls about sirens going off across Oahu, but we have confirmed with the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center that there is NO TSUNAMI THREAT. #hiwx #tsunami

— NWSHonolulu (@NWSHonolulu) September 19, 2019

Webmaster's Commentary: 

NOT Funny!! We had one man die from a stress-induced coronary the last time.

Please; the warning systems in the State are put there to save people; not to cause them to die from stress-related problems.

The training here, appears to have been hideously hap-hazard, and obviously uneffective.

New sales pitch? US makes the world’s ‘finest’ anti-air systems, but sometimes they just don’t work, Pompeo explains

Perhaps fearing that Riyadh might give the US defense system a 1-star review on Yelp, Pompeo used his master statesmanship to reassure loyal customers around the world that they didn’t spend billions of dollars on something that doesn’t actually work.

How is it that, after spending “$80 million a year” on air defense, the Saudis weren’t able to track “missiles that are crossing the Persian Gulf?” a journalist traveling with the secretary of state rudely asked on Wednesday.

“We’ve seen air defense systems all around the world have mixed success. Some of the finest in the world don’t always pick things up,” Pompeo replied, dunking on all of the haters with facts and logic.

He went on to suggest that Saudi Arabia simply doesn’t have enough (US-made) “infrastructure” to stop such an attack, and that Washington will work with the Kingdom to alleviate this problem. Sounds expensive.

Weinstein's attorney says his 'whole life has been ruined': 'He never gets to be Harvey Weinstein ever again'

An attorney representing disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein in a sexual assault case set to go to trial next year said in a recent interview that the former producer's “whole life has been ruined” after more than 70 women in recent years accused him of sexual misconduct, including harassment and rape.

In an interview with CBS News’s Gayle King that was released on Tuesday, attorney Donna Rotunno said that she believes that no matter the outcome of the pending criminal case against Weinstein, in which two woman accused him of sexual assault, he “will pay the biggest price there is.”

“Even if he wins, Gayle,” Rotunno said. “His whole life has been ruined, toppled, damaged. And whether it’s by his own doing or others', that’s the fact. And the fact is that no matter what we do, and we can walk out of that courtroom with a not guilty and walk him out onto those courtroom steps, and he never gets to be Harvey Weinstein ever again.”

“It’s a terrible situation — that’s in Los Angeles and in San Francisco,” Trump told journalists aboard Air Force One on Wednesday evening, according to a pool report. “And we’re going to be giving San Francisco, they’re in total violation, we’re going to be giving them a notice very soon.”

The Very Book The Government Does Not Want You To Read Just Went #1 In The World

The Facts: Edward Snowden recently released a book titled Permanent Record. The US government is now suing the publisher of the book for not giving the CIA and the NSA a chance to erase classified details from the book.

Reflect On: What is the government really protecting? Are they protecting the well being of the citizenry or are they protecting immoral, unethical, political, corporate and elitist interests?

George Orwell’s 1984 is a classic book depicting a populace ruled by a political regime that persecutes individualism and independent critical thinking as “thoughtcrimes” that must be enforced by the “thought police.” This party seeks power above all, and, through the propagandist Ministry of Truth, presents the people with their version of truth and casts away all other information and opinion. Sound familiar?

Police in Minneapolis Refuse to Call Mass Black-On-White Attack a "Hate Crime": Claim White Person Attacked Was "Impaired"

Minneapolis police report 20 people have been arrested, 18 of them charged, in connection with two brutal mob-style robberies caught on tape in viral videos.

The suspects range in age from 15 to 27 and were charged with various counts of robbery relating to two vicious robberies in August in which mobs surrounded young men and beat them unconscious. Some suspects were charged with first-degree felony robbery, which carries up to 20 years in prison.

Police told Fox News mobs targeted “vulnerable” victims for valuables like cell phones.

Brendan O’Brien, 24, told Fox News he was out celebrating his birthday in Minneapolis when he was surrounded by one of the mobs and then beaten. The video appears to show O’Brien clinging to his belongings until he finally was knocked out.

Ann Coulter On Kavanaugh Smear: Penis Story Collapses In Flaccid Hearsay

If I can produce someone who saw John Roberts’ penis in college, can we get the Obamacare opinion overturned?

As all MSNBC viewers are well aware, last Sunday’s edition of the New York Times ran an excerpt of the book The Education of Brett Kavanaugh: An Investigation, by Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly, which revives Debbie Ramirez's accusations against the Supreme Court nominee.

Quick reminder: This is NOT the Kavanaugh accuser with two front doors. It is NOT the Kavanaugh accuser whose own father warned that she had psychological problems.

This is the one who didn’t remember what Kavanaugh did to her for more than 30 years, until a few lefty friends helpfully reminded her that they’d heard something about it from a guy, who heard it from a guy, whereupon she spent six days “assessing her memories” during the nomination hearings—and darned if it didn’t all come back to her!
