African dust hovers over Florida, acting as hurricane shield: report
A huge amount of African dust is hovering over the sky of the Sunshine State, and that’s a good thing, The massive plume of beige dust, known as the Saharan Air Layer, is a cluster of dry, dusty air that forms around late spring, summer and early fall off the coast of Africa and typically moves west into the Caribbean Sea, The dry air suppresses hurricanes and thunderstorms by merging large quantities of dust with the Atlantic and creating a stable layer of dry, sinking air preventing pressure from building, NOAA said.
Tropical Depression One-E Forms off Southern Mexico
First depression of the season not likely to be a swell maker for SoCal. The 2019 Eastern Pacific Hurricane Season is forecast to be an active one but it sure hasn’t started off that way. Last season’s hyperactivity produced 23 named storms and 13 hurricanes, setting records for total storm energy (ACE) — factoring in the similar climate pattern (most importantly the weak to moderate El Nino), this year is expected to follow with more above-average tropical activity.

Donald Trump’s Father was so Dedicated to Israel Causes, People Thought he was Jewish
Donald Trump is arguably the most pro-Israel president in U.S. history and it could be that the roots of this beneficence towards the Jewish state go deep into the president’s family history. Donald Trump is not Jewish nor does he have Jewish ancestry. His father, Fred, was a Lutheran and his Scottish-born mother a Presbyterian. Donald Trump… is true to his beliefs and his world view, part of which is that Israel is, from an objective point of view, an important ally and an asset to the security of the United States. It is clear to him that the Jewish people are entitled to a secure state. That recognition from a president is unprecedented. But what is more amazing is that he acts on this belief, unabashedly and unequivocally.”
Biochip advances enable next-generation sequencing technologies
Biochips are essentially tiny laboratories designed to function inside living organisms, and they are driving next-generation DNA sequencing technologies. This powerful combination is capable of solving unique and important biological problems, such as single-cell, rare-cell or rare-molecule analysis, which next-generation sequencing can’t do on its own.

Merrill Lynch Caught Criminally Manipulating Precious Metals Market “Thousands Of Times” Over 6 Years
Remember when it was pure tinfoil-hat conspiracy theory to accuse one or more banks of aggressively, compulsively and systematically manipulating the precious metals – i.e., gold and silver – market? We do, after all we made the claim over and over, while demonstrating clearly just how said manipulation was taking place, often in real time. Well, it’s always good to be proven correct, even if it is years after the fact.
ECB To Italian Government: Your Gold Is Ours
On Tuesday, the ECB asked the League, the dominant party in Italy’s ruling coalition, to remove a reference to the Bank of Italy holding gold as an “exclusive title of deposit” according to Bloomberg.

U.S. drone shootdown: How many Iranian weapons did Obama and Kerry finance with their “nuclear deal?”
In part, we can thank former President Barack Obama and his sidekick, former Secretary of State John Kerry, the latter of whom has been in contact with the Iranians over the past year. As part of their “nuclear” deal, Iran was given access to some $150 billion in assets that had been frozen for decades — after the Islamic revolution in the late 1970s in which the country pivoted from its friendly Western ties and influences into the authoritarian, terrorism-supporting Islamic state it is today.

‘Triple whammy’ threatens UN action on climate change
A “triple whammy” of events threatens to hamper efforts to tackle climate change say UN delegates. At a meeting in Bonn, Saudi Arabia has continued to object to a key IPCC scientific report that urges drastic cuts in carbon emissions. Added to that, the EU has so far failed to agree to a long term net zero emissions target. Thirdly, a draft text from the G20 summit in Japan later this week waters down commitments to tackle warming.

The Unfolding Revolution In Honduras Will Prove to be the Catalyst for 150 Million Migrants Eventually Coming to Our Southern Border
It is not likely that the unfolding circumstances in Honduras that could potentially lead to genocide and a mass exodus from the beleaguered country will ever get much coverage of from the MSM. However, as this contrived and emerging holocaust expands across Latin America, we can expect that the enormous and expanding tragedy will bring, according to one DEA source, a projected 150 million immigrants to our southern border before these events subside.

Millions of Migrants and Paramilitary Troops Will Soon Be Here-Red Dawn Is Taking Shape
Part one of this series established the unfolding revolution in Honduras. We discussed how and why Honduras is entering a state of civil war and this is in a country whose cities are already the most deadly in the world. Many hard-liners are not going to like this statement: If the American laws related to asylum were literally applied to Honduras, about 80% of the country would qualify for admission to our country. And as if this was not bad enough, the CIA, the UN and other covert “for-hire” mercenaries are in the country exacerbating an already volatile situation.
Sign Of The Times? Weather Patterns All Over The Planet Are Going Absolutely Nuts
