Ever since the EPA accidentally dumped 3 million gallons of toxic mine water into the Animas River, Colorado authorities have been keen on reopening the river for public use as soon as possible. The river is a significant source of tourist income in the region, and they don’t want the toxic spill to put a damper on their summer.
Governor John Hickenlooper is one of those authorities, and he’s determined to prove that everything is back to normal. So on Tuesday, after being given the challenge by the Durango Herald, he decided to take a big gulp of river water for the cameras. After 24 hours, he reported that he was still in perfect health.
However, that hardly proves that the river is safe, at least in the long term. Granted, the EPA has tested the water and found that its toxicity has returned to pre-spill levels, but all of this is based on only a few days of water testing, which hardly enough time to draw a proper conclusion. Even the EPA admitted that during a recent public meeting between themselves and the Governor.
Speaking in Durango, Hickenlooper, a Democrat, said a preliminary analysis of water samples taken Friday from Cement Creek – after a plume of mustard-yellow mining wastewater crawled down the river – shows that the water has largely returned to pre-event levels. Concentrations of heavy metals and pH had returned to within normal ranges, confirmed Dr. Larry Wolk, executive director of the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.
But an official with the EPA asked Hickenlooper to stop making comments about the returning health of the river.
“It doesn’t show where we are at right now,” Shaun McGrath, Region 8 administrator for the EPA, told Hickenlooper, as officials huddled on the grass at Rotary Park. “You have to have a couple of days of data to show that you’re actually back to baseline conditions, and we’re not there yet.”
“That’s nonsense,” Hickenlooper responded, pointing out that businesses that rely on the river to drive operations are closed.
Just one day later, the EPA went so far as to call the water safe for consumption in Durango and La Plata County. Make of that of what you will. It’s probably true that this stretch of the river is now relatively safe, but that’s only temporary. In all likelihood, the toxicity of the whole Animas River will haunt the region for decades.

[Potent News editor’s update: John McAfee: Ashley Madison database stolen by lone female who worked for Avid Life Media]
Finally, the real reason why professional hackers have lifted the data of 37 million users from the fashionable ‘infidelity’ website Ashley Madison.
Anyone employed by the state who was stupid enough to join this site should by now realize that this whole hacking affair was a staged exercise in mass entrapment, and blackmail. The media are making a big deal about how this hack is somehow a “goldmine” for cyber criminals, but do not dare mention that, besides a public hack, what this kind of information could do in the hands of the deep state via covert agencies like the NSA, the FBI or the CIA, Canada’s CSIS, or overseas spook houses like Britain’s MI5, or Israel’s Mossad. Easy pickings, all in one place.
Much has been made of the not-so-bright conclave of 15,000 US gov’t and military personnel with .gov and .mil addresses – all of whom who were using the website to facilitate their extramarital flings, but the pool of suckers is not limited to American shores. AP reports:
“Although many may have signed up out of curiosity and some have little more to fear than embarrassment, the consequences for others could reverberate beyond their marriages. The French leak monitoring firm CybelAngel said it counted 1,200 email addresses in the data dump with the .sa suffix, suggesting users were connected to Saudi Arabia, where adultery is punishable by death.”
According to the Telegraph, UK gov’t and Defense Dept. staff were particularly badly hit in the data dump:
“According to the website Political Scrapbook, there are 92 Ministry of Defence email addresses among the leaked details. The website has found 1,716 email addresses from universities and further education colleges, using the .ac.uk suffix; 124 using .gov.uk; 92 using .mod.uk; 65 local education authorities and schools using .sch.uk; 56 National Heath Service emails and less than 50 police emails (.police.uk)”
“Michelle Thomson, one of the SNP’s newly-elected Westminster MPs, has said one of her email addresses is among the leaked data dumped online by hackers. The married MP said someone had stolen her email address and used it without her knowledge.”
Of course, the really big winner in this scandal, as with most things – are the lawyers. Elizabeth Hicks, partner at British divorce law firm Irwin Mitchell, must be chuffed about the potential for future business:
“With 1.2m Britons apparently affected by the data leak, 95 per cent of whom are reportedly male, there will no doubt be a few nervous husbands sat round the dinner table tonight.”
It’s also a potential disaster for the website’s closet gay users. Business Insider adds here:
“Avid Life is based in Toronto, but, as its site boasts, it has “over 40 million members worldwide.” Many of these members live in countries where adultery or homosexuality are illegal, and often with very serious punishments. One Reddit user says that he lives in Saudi Arabia, but used Ashley Madison while studying in the US to “keep my [gay] hookups extremely discreet,” and that he “only used AM to hook up with single guys.” He says he has since been forced to flee the country.”
This just goes to show what a true ‘honey pot’ these types of “vice” websites really are…

In 1964, President Lyndon Johnson declared an “unconditional war on poverty in America” – not simply to “relieve the symptom of poverty, but to cure it and, above all, to prevent it.” How has that worked out? Today there are over 126 Federal antipoverty programs and in constant dollars, Federal spending has risen from $107 billion to $688 billion – or 640%.
Total government spending has ballooned to $21,000 for every person below the poverty level in America, or $63,339 for a family of three. Since the war on poverty began, $19 trillion dollars have been spent ending poverty, but the poverty rate has increased. What is the Truth About Welfare?

Earlier this year, the well-known ultra-hipster magazine and clickbait cesspool Vice launched a new site called Broadly, which is essentially their answer to feminist blogs like Jezebel and Feministing. When the blog was first announced, its publisher Shannon Kelley stated: “If you look at the current landscape of women’s media, it is purely reactionary. Blogs are either reacting to the news, gossiping about celebrities or discussing the latest beauty and fashion trends. No one is telling original stories that women specifically relate to. For Vice, it is in our DNA to provide original, story-driven video content and speak to a millennial audience.”
So, what kind of original, non-reactionary, millennial-approved content that women specifically relate to is Vice publishing under its new Broadly umbrella?
Pictured: A very small sample of the kind of content published by Broadly. Empowering, thought-provoking stuff, to be sure.
Well, aside from the usual insipid junk about fashion, celebrities, dating, horoscopes, “the patriarchy”, and so forth, Broadly just published this new article about how bestiality is the latest progressive thing that modern-day women should embrace.
No, I’m not exaggerating.

Law enforcement authorities and mainstream US news media are framing the November 20 Florida State University shooting incident as yet another case of a lone nut who regrettably gained access to a firearm.
Police Chief Michael DeLeo intimated May’s mental disorientation by noting to the press that the intellectually-gifted 31-year old attorney was in a “state of crisis.” “It’s clear Mr. May’s sense of being in place in our community,” DeLeo continued, “was not in a normal status” [sic]. For US journalists such statements, coupled with May’s unusual behavior leading up to the shooting are unambiguous: a sudden onset of mentally illness.
But was May in fact mentally ill? According to Derrick Robinson, President of Freedom From Covert Harassment and Surveillance (FFCHS), the United States has a long history of mind control research and techniques, dating at least to the CIA’s MKULTRA and similar programs begun in the early 1950s.
“Basically their aim [has been] to control a human being without the person being aware of their efforts.” An individual can thus be directed to commit any number of acts, including murder and political assassination. “They use drugs, they use electroshock, they use hypnosis, and ultimately electromagnetic energy. That seemed to be what paid off the most for them.” Robinson, a former US military veteran, also claims to be a victim of such practices.
May’s personal characteristics and behavior indeed fit the profile of many targeted individuals. He was single, changed his occupational status and living arrangements frequently over a short period leading up to the November 20 event (perhaps to avoid continued harassment), and was even in contact with FFCHS members for support as he protested what he perceived as electronic surveillance and harassment on social media.
On Sept. 7, May called police in Las Cruces, New Mexico, to report that someone had installed a camera in his apartment. As the Miami Herald reports, “He told police he could hear voices coming through the walls, and the voices were talking about him. One evening, for instance, he heard the voices commenting on his actions as he applied lotion after a bubble bath.” According to Las Cruces broadcast journalist Laura Thoren, when May “filed the report police told him to ‘switch apartments.’” Aaron Alexis made similar complaints to police in the weeks leading up to his September 16, 2013 assault on the Navy Yard military base.
