US and Iran Step Up the Blame Game Over Suspected Attack on Oil Tankers in Gulf of Oman

Despite accusations from Washington, Iran has no motive for instigating the attack on oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman, analysts told RT, stressing that the suspicious incident has harmed, rather than helped, Tehran.

Iran rescued 44 sailors from two tankers, ‘Front Altair’ and ‘Kokuka Courageous,’ after the vessels came under attack on Thursday. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was quick to pin the blame for the incident on Iran, claiming that the Islamic Republic was “lashing out” in frustration over Washington’s draconian sanctions regime.

As Migrants Arrive in Texas from the Congo, Media Buries the Medical Fact that Africans Can Carry Ebola Without Showing Any Symptoms

It is a medical fact that people of African descent have enhanced natural immunity to various viral infections, including Ebola. In fact, migrants from Africa may carry Ebola and show no symptoms whatsoever. This simple, irrefutable fact appears to be completely unknown to all U.S. doctors, journalists and CDC “experts” who claim Ebola can’t possibly be carried to the U.S. from Congo because, they often explain, nobody is showing any symptoms.

Yet it is a well-known medical fact that Ebola carriers from Africa may be entirely symptom-free. If you don’t believe me, go back to the June 27, 2000 article in the New York Times, authored by Lawrence K. Altman. The headline is, “People Carrying Ebola, in Some Cases, May Be Free of Symptoms.”

“The Ebola virus… can also infect without producing illness, according to a new finding by African and European scientists,” reported the NYT. “They found that the Ebola virus could persist in the blood of asymptomatic infected individuals for two weeks after they were first exposed to an infected individual. How much longer the virus can persist is unknown.”

Citing a study published in The Lancet and authored by Dr. E. M. Leroy, the NYT continues:

Scientists have known that Ebola usually spreads from an infected person to another individual and through contamination in clinics or hospitals. The new finding suggests that some cases may result from healthy carriers. How often is unknown.

Dr. Leroy’s team said another public health concern was transmission of Ebola virus from healthy carriers through sex. Other scientists have detected Ebola in semen.

Yes, Ebola virus can live in human semen. This simple fact is completely denied by the entire fake news “establishment” media, even when the NYT openly admitted it in 2000. That’s the whole point of the indy media news censorship you’re seeing today across the ‘net; to silence real facts while pushing a fake news narrative that’s built on fictions rather than reality.

Fiction = “No one from the Republic of Congo could possibly be carrying Ebola, or they would be showing symptoms.”

FACT = Scientists documented symptom-free carriers of Ebola nearly twenty years ago, and the virus can be carried for years in blood and semen.

President Trump Doubles Down on Support for GMOs, Signs Executive Order Allowing Crops and Animals to Flood Market Without Scientific Review

Donald Trump’s tenure as president has been nothing short of a disaster for holistic health and clean food advocates since he took over as Commander in Chief back in January 2017, and lately, the disappointments and letdowns have shown no signs of slowing.

In January 2018, Trump uttered the words “biotechnology” for the first time as part of a speech in Nashville, Tennessee, during which he set the stage for GMO “food” companies like Bayer, Monsanto and DuPont to thrive with surprising comments.

“We are streamlining regulations that have blocked cutting-edge biotechnology, setting free our farmers to innovate, thrive, and to grow,” Trump said in a public meeting with the American Farm Bureau Federation.

“Oh, are you happy you voted for me. You are so lucky that I gave you that privilege,” he later said during his speech.

Now, President Trump is doubling down on his support for GMOs, in a move that has outraged organic food advocates across the country and could allow for new GMO crops, and animals, to flood the market without prior scientific review and safety testing.

Trump Signs Executive Order to Further GMO Agenda

This past Tuesday, President Trump officially signed an executive order allowing federal agencies to scale back regulation of genetically engineered organisms, animals and foods, which are most widely known by the “GMO” moniker.

Trump’s newly signed executive order directs agencies to exempt many GMOs from proper regulation, and will help speed up the review process.

As a result, an “increasing number” of GMO crops and animals (possibly including the new GMO salmon, whose eggs have just entered the United States for the first time) will not be be subject to scientific review by federal agencies, a report from the Center for Food Safety said.

The order comes just a week after the U.S. Department of Agriculture issued a proposed rule to limit and weaken regulation of GMOs that fall under its jurisdiction.

According to the report, the White House claims it will direct government agencies to “streamline” regulations for biotechnology (which sounds strikingly similar to former President George H.W. Bush’s infamous meeting with Monsanto in 1987, when seven words ushered in the GMO era).

Trump’s goal is to weaken the already toothless regulatory system that has “repeatedly failed to protect farmers, rural communities, and the environment from the havoc wrought by genetically engineered products, or GMOs,” the CFS said.

In addition to gutting already weak regulations, which generally only allow for 90-day safety reviews for most lab-spliced GMO crops and basically give a free pass to new CRISPR gene edited crops from scientists playing God with our food, the executive order will also include an “international outreach” component to promote GMOs internationally using government-sanctioned propaganda campaigns.

Since the announcement of the news social media, and organizations like the CFS, have been abuzz about Trump’s latest betrayal to the organic and natural food movement.

“President Trump’s executive order shows that this administration is beholden to pesticide corporations, not serving the interests of farmers as it claims,” said Bill Freese, science and policy analyst at Center for Food Safety (CFS).

“If the administration cared about farmers, it would take steps to protect them from the GMO-driven herbicide drift that is devastating their crops, or actually investigate the latest genetically engineered wheat contamination episode.”

The CFS does not appear ready to take the news sitting down by any stretch of the imagination.
The organization is already busy in the courts working to stop the latest generation of “hazardous” GMO crops and their associated toxic pesticides, previously suing to stop the approval of genetically engineered salmon and petitioning the government to protect the iconic monarch butterfly from GMO agriculture and glyphosate.

The combination of GMO crops and the cancer-causing pesticide glyphosate has been devastating wildlife, the health of humans who come in contact with it, and rural landscapes for years.
Despite long odds, the CFS has vowed to continue the fight.

“CFS will fight this Trump initiative with all the means at our disposal,” said George Kimbrell, legal director at CFS.

“We will counter Trump’s propaganda efforts with public education on the pesticide-promoting effects of GMOs, the environmental hazards of genetically engineered salmon, and the administration’s junk science approach to regulation.

“CFS will continue to educate the public about the huge losses suffered by farmers whose crops, through no fault of their own, become contaminated with experimental GMOs that USDA refuses to properly confine,” he continued.

For more information, check out the full release from the CFS here, and be sure to support them with your dollars if you’d like to help put a stop to reckless promotion of GMOs by the Trump administration.

US Gov Narrative Blaming Iran for Oil Tanker Attacks Falls Apart in Hours

The Donald Trump administration’s evidence-less accusations against Iran have fallen apart within a matter hours. But these US allegations did manage to disrupt an important meeting of Asian leaders at the Shanghai Cooperation Organization summit, where Tehran was hoping to make diplomatic breakthroughs to ease a crippling American economic blockade.

On Thursday, June 13, two oil tankers traveling through the Gulf of Oman on their way to Japan suffered from mysterious explosions. The cause of the incident was not clear.

The US government claimed without evidence that Iran was responsible for supposed “attacks” on the vessels. Trump administration officials accused Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) of damaging a Japanese tanker with a mine.

But by the morning of Friday, June 14, the narrative had fallen apart, with the Japanese cargo company, Kokuka Sangyo, telling journalists that the US government’s version of the story was simply bogus.

“The crew is saying that it was hit by a flying object,” explained the president of the company, Yutaka Katada. “They are saying that something came flying.”

“To put a bomb on the side is something that we are not thinking,” he added, in comments at a press conference.

The US military published video of what it claims is an Iranian boat crew removing an unexploded mine from the hull of the Japanese tanker Kokuka Courageous.

But the company’s president insisted in remarks reported by Reuters that it was not an Iranian mine but rather two “flying objects” that damaged the ship.

“The crew told us something came flying at the ship, and they found a hole,” Katada reiterated. “Then some crew witnessed the second shot.”

Reuters noted that the “tanker was attacked near the Strait of Hormuz, a major strategic waterway through which about one-fifth of global oil consumption passes on its way from Middle Eastern producers including Saudi Arabia, Iraq, the UAE and Kuwait as well as Iran.”

The company president added, “This strait is very crucial. Without this route we can not transport gasoline and heavy oil to Japan.”

Sabotaging Iran’s diplomacy with Asian leaders

Iran’s foreign minister, Javad Zarif, shot back at the Trump administration’s allegations on Twitter. Zarif accused the White House of seeking to “sabotage diplomacy” and “cover up [American] economic terrorism against Iran” without offering “a shred of factual or circumstantial evidence” to back up their claims.

As The Grayzone reported, the US government’s accusations against Iran arrived as Prime Minister Shinzo Abe became the first Japanese leader to visit Tehran in four decades.

The Trump administration also issued its unsubstantiated allegations a day before an even more important meeting of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, a pan-Asian political and economic alliance that brought together the leaders of the world’s largest countries.

On June 14, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani joined President Xi Jinping of China, President Vladimir Putin of Russia, Prime Minister Narendra Modi of India, and Prime Minister Imran Khan of Pakistan, among other leaders, at the regional summit in Bishkek, the capital of Kyrgyzstan.

The US government’s accusations may have at least partially derailed Iran’s diplomatic efforts, as Modi cancelled a bilateral meeting with Rouhani at the last minute, allegedly due to “scheduling issues.”

Until the Trump administration illegally violated the international Iran nuclear deal (known officially as the JCPOA) in May 2018, India had been the second-largest purchaser of Iranian oil. But US threats of secondary sanctions forced India to cut Iranian oil imports.

Rouhani and Modi have recently discussed efforts to create a new mechanism through which India can pay in rupees for Iranian oil, thereby bypassing American sanctions.

Despite US attempts at sabotage, Iranian-Chinese talks at the Shanghai Cooperation Organization summit went smoothly. Reuters reported, citing Beijing’s state media, that “Chinese President Xi Jinping told Iran’s president on Friday that China will promote steady development of ties with Iran no matter how the situation changes.”

At the summit, Rouhani also met with Putin, and called for closer ties between Iran and Russia.

The Empire's Ending In Moral & Financial Bankruptcy - Is Pompeo Lying Again? (Liberty Report)

America was never meant to be an Empire. Liberty and Empire are mutually exclusive. But alas the road of Empire was taken long before any of us were born, and it has been in steady decline for the last 50 years. Empires always end in a melange of moral and financial bankruptcy. America is following this script to the letter.

Iran False Flag? (The Duran)

A spokesman for the Saudi-led coalition supporting Yemen's government in the country's civil war has come out and blamed Iran for Thursday's attack, saying they believe they can connect it to a similar tanker bombing last year in the Red Sea committed by Yemen's Iran-backed Houthi rebels. The spokesman called the attack a "major escalation", and reiterated in what sounded to us like a thinly veiled threat that Saudi Arabia has the capacity to protect its vital institutions.

You may remember that the Houthis have over the last year repeatedly fired missiles (with mixed success) at Saudi oil fields and even came close to successfully bombing a royal palace.

Earlier, over in the UK, a spokesperson for the government called the attack on civilian oil tankers "completely unacceptable" and said the UK was ready to assist in the rescue effort and investigation.

Meanwhile, senior officials from the US and UAE have attributed the attack to a "state actor," though they neglected to explicitly name Iran.

All this is happening before the investigation into the attacks has even begun. And BBG's Javier Blas pointed out that should Iran be found responsible, it would be a strange turn of events since the Front Altair is owned by John Frederiksen, the owner of the Frontline Tanker company, who moved oil for Iran during the "tanker war" with Iraq.

Persian Gulf Tanker Attack: Iran Guilty? False Flag? Cui Bono? (Liberty Report)

Just as the prime minister of Japan was in an historic visit to Iran (the first since the 1979 revolution), a Japanese-owned tanker (and one other) was attacked in the Persian Gulf. US neocons are pointing the finger at Iran. Does it make sense to attack Japan in the midst of productive talks? Will the propaganda machine ramp up war talk?

BREAKING NEWS: Likely FALSE FLAG Attack in Gulf of Oman vs Oil Tankers

Likely FALSE FLAG Attack in Gulf of Oman vs Oil Tankers (one of which has sunk apparently?) to be blamed on Iran.

This is gonna lead to strikes against Iranian assets, and/or cause a huge up tick in the oil price (as things may escalate), and (as pointed out previously in a shared article) a high oil price may crash oil based derivatives products in the financial sector leading to another GFC (or worse). Get ready for thick and fast accusations flying without EVIDENCE, like the WMD claims. Iran is a target country for Gulf State Nations, Israel and the USA. Here's the first report on the incident - see below - the previous oil tanker attacks this year were too lame to generate a reaction.

Question: Is the Iranian Government so stupid that they would go and sink these oil tankers knowing the consequences? Go ahead and share this warning if you wish, and/or stay tuned.

One thing that is likely to happen, and that is Russia and China will step in to back Iran to stop any prolonged military actions taken against the country. In the meantime financial markets around the world are likely to be shocked. Everything here depends on the reaction of the USA/West to this event. If it is a measured response, then things will chug along much as before. If not, then trouble of some sort is ahead. Story follows:

Oil tankers on fire after 'torpedo' attack in Gulf of Oman

Taiwan's state oil refiner CPC Corp said one of them, the Front Altair, was "suspected of being hit by a torpedo".

Maritime intelligence firm Dryad Global said it was "on fire and adrift".

The fire was caused by an explosion, International Tanker Management, which operates the vessel said.

Oil tanker association Intertanko confirmed the ships had been attacked, and expressed concerns about crew safety.

"Following two attacks on member vessels this morning, I am extremely worried about the safety of our crews going through the Strait of Hormuz," Intertanko chairman Paolo dAmico said.

The Gulf of Oman leads into the Strait of Hormuz.

Mr dAmico added that "some 30% of the world's (seaborne) crude oil passes through the Straits.

"If the waters are becoming unsafe, the supply to the entire western world could be at risk."

All major Gulf stock markets dropped following the news, and oil prices rose by about 4%.

Iran's Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) reported that the Front Altair had sunk.

But Norwegian shipping firm Frontline said it was still afloat.

"The vessel hasn't sunk," company spokesman Pat Adamson said. "There are pictures from a salvage vessel that is circling the ship."

The other tanker - Kokuka Courageous - was attacked twice in three hours, the president of Japanese owner Kokuka Sangyo told reporters, and breached above the waterline, igniting a fire in an engine room.

This latest incident follows allegations from the US that Iran used mines to attack four oil tankers off the Emirati port of Fujairah last month. Iran has denied being involved
