Via The Local: ' Swedish courts on Wednesday authorised the culling of 14 wolves pending a top court's decision on the legality of hunting an animal protected under European law. The legal uncertainty surrounding wolf hunting will last until the Supreme Administrative Court definitively settles the issue, although a date for a ruling has not yet been set. The temporary ruling allows for the killing of 14 wolves in two regions in the hunting season running from January 2nd to February 15th, far fewer than the 46 animals in five regions originally planned. Sweden's Environmental Protection Agency estimates that the wolf population stands at just over 400, and recommends it be kept at that level through regulated hunting, or culling. Hunters have complained that wolves have been decimating the stocks of other game and menacing hunting dogs in rural parts of the country. They also say that many of the wolves they killed had been in good health, which shows that the species, considered extinct in the 1970s, has made a good recovery in Sweden. The back-and-forth battle saw Sweden resume wolf hunting in 2010 and 2011, leading to a protest by the European Commission over the country's hunting quota policy. For the 2016 season, three parallel proceedings were launched, with various rulings from different courts, some of which opted to ban hunts earlier this week.

Via Before It's News: What Did Nostradamus Predict For 2016? NOSTRADAMUS, the most famous astrologer who ever lived, was born in France in 1503 and published his barely scrutable collection of prophecies, The Centuries, in 1555. Each four-line verse (or “quatrain”) purported to foretell world events far into the future, and ever since Nostradamus’ time devotees have claimed his work accurately predicted wars, natural disasters and the rise and fall of empires. If the aftermaths of past world catastrophes are any indication, we can expect to see a bumper crop of arcane tracts in the coming weeks and months purporting to show beyond a doubt that Nostradamus foresaw the World Trade Center and Pentagon attacks of September 11, 2001. In fact, thanks to the efforts of anonymous Internet pranksters, the he-told-you-sos have already begun. “Spooky” quatrains allegedly foretelling the events of 9/11 with incredible specificity were circulating online within hours of the first jetliner crash in New York City — completely bogus quatrains, as it turned out. It wasn’t a question of whether or not they accurately predicted anything; Nostradamus simply didn’t write them. We are about to say goodbye to the year of 2015, so many spiritual believers begin searching for the Nostradamus future predictions for 2016. If it is your case and you have the strong interest in Psychic Nostradamus’s wisdom, go on reading his prophecies regarding the possible occurrences in the future of 2016! The precious insights derived from the historic Psychic’s forecasts definitely boost the spiritual growth in the divine boundary. The predictions for 2016 are already starting to come in hot now that the New Year’s Day is almost upon us. So far, the 2016 predictions are looking fairly interesting. While World War 3 fears have become common due to saber rattling by China and Vladimir Putin’s Russia, some people are combining the 2016 Nostradamus predictions with Bible prophecies related to Jesus and the Antichrist’s end times. Throw a giant asteroid into the WW III mix, and these 2016 conspiracy theories are certain to be a blast. #The disappearance of language differences may occur in 2015 thanks to the presence of the universal translating machine. He predicted that this great development may soon lead to the end of nations with “new engine” in the world. #The resurrection of the dead is also foretold. According to Nostradamus, “the buried dead shall come out of their graves”. Such the chilling prediction inspires the great dread to the living since we’re all scared of the dead (also called as zombies). Since there will be no more room in hell, the dead is predicted to resurrect. Do you believe in such the prophecy? Only time can answer it! #The Collapse of the World Economy is predicted with the statement “the rich shall die many times over”. #Mount Vesuvius will go under the major eruption. The massive event may happen in late 2015 or early 2016. If the eruption occurs in the daylight, it will be the worse events affecting the regions around in darkness. Meanwhile, earthquake may appear every 5 or 10 minutes before the deadly lava and ash flow starts. #Humans will live over 200 years old. With the remarkable advances in medicine, the average life-span of humans is increased to 200 years. Along with that, the 80-year-old guy may look just like the 50-year-old gentleman. That was what the French seers foresaw! #Western USA will suffer the major earthquake. Mount St. Helen may have the major volcanic eruption happening in May 2015, possibly. Even worse, the events may turn to be the superb volcanic eruption with the beginning of an earthquake. #Humans will learn to communicate with animals. The big advances in the science of telepathy and animal communication skills will enable humans to talk to the pets and farm animals as well. Nostradamus wrote that “The hog will become brother to man”. #The Western world will abolish all kinds of taxes. With the large revolt, the taxation will be ended for the expected freedom.

Via Before It's News: Alberto Rivera was a jesuit priest until he renounced and told what he knew from his years as a priest in the Society of Jesus that included access to the secret Vatican libraries. For this he was assassinated, as other former Jesuit priests have been poisoned. Here he discloses how the Vatican created the Islamic religion to destroy Jerusalem and Jews. “The great counterfeit religion was Roman Catholicism, called ‘Mystery, Babylon the Great, the Mother of Harlots and Abominations of the Earth’- Revelation 17:5. She was raised up to block the gospel, slaughter the believers in Christ, establish religions, create wars and make the nations drunk with the wine of her fornication as we will see. “The Vatican wanted to create a messiah for the Arabs, someone they could raise up as a great leader, a man with charisma whom they could train, and eventually unite all the non-Catholic Arabs behind him, creating a mighty army that would ultimately capture Jerusalem for the pope.The pope moved quickly and issued bulls granting the Arab generals permission to invade and conquer the nations of North Africa. The Vatican helped to finance the building of these massive Islamic armies in exchange for three favors: 1. Eliminate the Jews and Christians (true believers, which they called infidels). 2. Protect the Augustinian Monks and Roman Catholics. 3. Conquer Jerusalem for “His Holiness” in the Vatican. As time went by, the power of Islam became tremendous – Jews and true Christians were slaughtered, and Jerusalem fell into their hands. Roman Catholics were never attacked, nor were their shrines, during this time. But when the pope asked for Jerusalem, he was surprised at their denial! The Arab generals had such military success that they could not be intimidated by the pope – nothing could stand in the way of their own plan.

Via The Local: The Gävle goat has has once again been set ablaze by Yuletide arsonists, with one suspected perpetrator spending the night sobering up in a cell after being seized by police. The fire marks the 34th time the gigantic Christmas goat or 'Julbocken' has been burned down since it was first erected in Slottstorget square in the city of Gävle, central Sweden, in 1966. Police arrived at the scene shortly after 3am on Sunday morning, after a burning smell was reported wafting over the town center. A heavily intoxicated man in his twenties was arrested shortly afterwards close to the flaming structure. “The suspect was carrying newspapers and lighters and was wearing a balaclava”, Peter Hultqvist, an office with the local police, told Expressen. “He was drunk and smelled of petrol”. Video shot at the scene shows that the man's clothes caught fire when the petrol with which he had doused the animal was ignited in a fireball. According to the police, the man, who on Sunday morning remained too drunk for questioning, had singed hair and soot covering much of his face at the time he was arrested. Police are on the hunt for an accomplice, who remains on the loose. By 4am, when the fire was finally extinguished, the goat had been completely destroyed. The goat, which has nearly 9.000 followers on Twitter, issued a farewell Tweet on Sunday morning.

Via Before It's News: Dr. Leonard Coldwell claims that any type of cancer can be cured in just 2 to 6 weeks. And there are some types of cancer, that if treated with the right treatment can be healed in a few minutes. He says that positivity and hopefulness really helps in the healing process. The healthcare and the pharmaceutical industry earn millions and millions of dollars through the cancer industry. This situation makes legislators legislate laws that will kill us. Or they will make you sick, and the laws that are supposed to protect us will not allow the right treatment for this deadly disease. They will make you sick and make the disease even worse with the poisonous and harsh “medical” treatments. First of all, Dr. Coldwell says that we need to eat more vegetables. This type of diet gives the body lots of oxygen. And if we add calcium and other alkalizing foods we will alkalize our bodies. This is very important for all cancer patients because the progress of cancer stop when the body is alkalized. Other important thing you should know is that our body has to achieve what is called a therapeutic Ph level. pH has 14 levels from 0 to 14. The lower values are the acidic region and the higher values are the alkaline region. The median neutral level is Ph 7. When the body reaches pH 7 it’s alkaline. A level of 7.36 is very good, but when it comes to treatment, a pH of around 7.5 or higher should be present. Dr. Coldwell claims that the “intravenous” injection of Vitamin C is very helpful. 100 cc every day, 3 times a week or less will give more than amazing results. Believe it or not, the cancer disappears in a few days after the Vitamin C injection. Other thing you should do is eliminate hypoxia. Dr. Martin, Dr. Coldwell’s friend offers a great solution for this – an oxygen therapy which involves several steps. In this method, blood is taken out, it’s enriched with pure oxygen and then re-injected into the body 12 times. When the blood is taken out of the body has a shade black color. But with this therapy, the blood that is re-injected has a shade of beautiful pink, like the blood of newborn baby. It’s completely fresh. This treatment fills the body with energy. Dr. Coldwell says that you need to eat foods, which have high amount of Vitamin C, such as: chili peppers, cabbage, broccoli, papaya, strawberries, cauliflower, pineapples, kiwi fruit, oranges and lemons. But, Vitamin C is not the only vitamin that has healing powers. We can add Vitamin E to this category as well. Vitamin E is extremely helpful with blood pressure. When it’s treated quickly and effectively in any form, Vitamin E has shown that I can produce stunning results. But, the best source of Vitamin E should be a natural source, and not the artificially produced ones. A study done with artificial produced Vitamin E has shown that it was ineffective. Remember, chemicals won’t help you with cancer. The nature is the one that brings all these illnesses and the nature again will come to the rescue. We all know that cancer didn’t exist 100 years ago and there are no reasons to exist now. We have caused this serious problem by ourselves. As we said before, the best and the most effective way to get rid of cancer is to consume fresh organic vegetables and other fresh raw foods. Other important thing, according to Dr. Coldwell is to drink 4 liters of water with ½ teaspoon of sea salt every day – unless you suffer from any type of kidney problem. If you think that excessive amounts of salt can lead to high blood pressure, Dr. Coldwell says not to worry. He says that even though we thought high amounts of salt is bad, the truth is actually the opposite. In fact, salt is essential. Lack of salt can create problems in your blood. Dr. Coldwell says that the electrical signal transmit only if the required amount of salt is present in our body. The real problem is with the table salt we all consume. The table salt we all consume contains only a third of actual salt. It contains 1/3 of glass and 1/3 of sand. This can cause some serious problems for our bodies. The sand and the glass irritate the blood vessels and they start bleeding. Then cholesterol clogs up to protect the blood vessels. Now you will think that high cholesterol can cause high blood pressure, right? But you are wrong again. This is not true, because you can’t die from excessive cholesterol. But you can have some serious problems if you have deficiency in cholesterol. Some people have had cholesterol as high as 60 and haven’t had any illness in their life. To be honest, I have never heard about this before. We all know that there is good and bad cholesterol, or the so called HDL and LDL cholesterol. But, Dr. Coldwell disagrees and says that it’s not cholesterol. He says that they are proteins that move cholesterol. Everything we thought we knew about this is completely wrong. But, how the doctors who say these things can be wrong too? For this we have Dr. Neal’s opinion. Dr. Gray Neal says that according to the statistics the doctors have the shortest life span – they live 56 years, they suffer from alcoholism, drug abuse, as well as has the highest rate of suicides – it is higher only with psychiatrist – and yet we go to ask them how to live longer, happier and healthier life. I believe that you should change your opinion.

Sweden's state-owned train operator SJ is to stop services to and from Denmark because it cannot carry out identity checks demanded by the government to stem the influx of refugees. Under a new Swedish law, transport companies will be fined if travelers to Sweden do not have valid photo ID. SJ said it would not have time to check people traveling between Copenhagen and Malmö over the Öresund bridge. Sweden has received about 150.000 asylum applications already this year. The government has secured a temporary exemption from the European Union's open-border Schengen agreement, in order to impose border controls. About 18.000 people commute to work daily across the bridge, Radio Sweden reports. SJ said all services between Denmark and Sweden would be suspended from 4 January when the new law comes into force. "Our planning of the introduction of ID border checks in Copenhagen before the departure of SJ trains bound for Sweden has shown that we are currently unable to carry out ID checks in accordance with the requirements of the new law in the amount of time allowed", the operator said on its website. It added it had chosen to "cancel its departures until there is a working solution in place". Skånetrafiken, the Swedish operator of the Öresund commuter trains between the two countries, announced on Tuesday that in the new year all its routes from Denmark will begin at Copenhagen airport, the final stop on the Danish side of the border. It means travelers wanting to go from the center of Copenhagen to Sweden will have to use connecting public transport to the airport where they will change to a train crossing the bridge. The checks will be carried out at the airport by Danish operator DSB, which will outline how they are going to work in practice at some point over the Christmas holidays, said Skånetrafiken. But according to regional newspaper Sydsvenskan a "wall-like fence" is set to be built at the airport's railway station separating the platforms for Sweden-bound and Denmark-bound trains to prevent travelers from crossing the tracks to avoid controls. Rush-hour trains going in the other direction from Sweden to Denmark – which are not directly affected by the ID checks – will only run every 20 minutes, as opposed to today's every 10 minutes. “In rush-hour fewer trains will cross the bridge, and it will get crowded at certain times”, Skånetrafiken press secretary Joakim Borgudd told the TT newswire. One million migrants have arrived in Europe by land or sea in 2015, the International Organisation for Migration says. Along with Germany, Sweden is one of the main destinations of choice - with over 150.000 applying for asylum in 2015. In contrast, Denmark expects to receive about 20.000 asylum seekers this year. Last week a Danish government proposal to seize asylum seekers' valuables to make them pay for their stay drew sharp criticizm.

Via Disclose.tv: Military-trained psychic spies were able to view non-humans on Earth and elsewhere through remote viewing, argued Jim Marrs at this year’s Secret Space Program conference in Bastrop, Texas. Jim Marrs is a former newspaper journalist who has written for a myriad of news outlets, including the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. He is perhaps best known for his 1989 book Crossfire: The Plot That Killed Kennedy , which reached the New York Times paperback non-fiction best seller list and later served as the basis for Oliver Stone’s film JFK. SRI International developed a method of spying called “remote viewing” in the 1970s, which caught the attention of the CIA and was later passed on to the U.S. Army. Remote viewing is a form of telepathy that perceives places, persons and actions through extrasensory perception (ESP). According to Marrs, everyone has the ability to do remote viewing. It is not limited to time and place. You can use it to look into the past and future. However, the further you look into the future, the fuzzier it gets, which suggests the future is not determined, explained Marrs. A US military program, known as StarGate, sought to locate and map Soviet Union submarines using remote viewing. The process involved a group of individuals who attempted to visualize the coordinates on a world map, given the magnitude and longitude of the submarines. The program had apparently worked effectively for more than twenty years. Army intelligence officer Joe McMoneagle is said to be the first man to be taught remote viewing during the StarGate project. The original group consisted of six remote viewers. During the course of the program, there was an interest in UFOs. One of the best remote viewers, according to Marrs, went by the name of Pat Price. According to Price, he found four alien bases on Earth. They were located on Mount Perdido in Pyrenees, Mount Inyangani in Zimbabwe, Mount Ziel in Australia, and Mount Haye’s in Alaska. The organization originally filed the report away. In 1998, Skip Atwater, executive officer of the grill flame unit, was responsible for giving members of the group odd tasks. He recalled Price’s four alien bases and gave them the coordinates for each. All the members came back and reported that all the bases were on Earth and run by aliens. Marrs believes that aliens have visited Earth many times throughout human history. Nevertheless, he believes the frequency of visits spiked with the rise of nuclear weapons. Marrs also referenced the 1948 Aztec story as evidence that remote viewing has been used to communicate with aliens. According to various reports, a UFO crashed in the New Mexico desert in 1948. Alien corpses were taken from the site by the U.S. Air Force, which many believe were dissected. There has been a lot of controversy about the Aztec story. The reason not many people know about the Aztec story, according to Marrs, is because Aztec is near the Colorado border. Military officials had been tracking the object prior to the crash. When the UFO landed, military units in Colorado immediately rushed to the site and disposed the evidence before anyone had a chance to see it. In 2009, Randy Barnes of the Aztec Library Association contracted with Problems > Solutions > Innovations, headed by Lyn Buchanan, who was once in charge of the army’s remote viewing unit. Eleven remote viewers were summoned to take a look at Aztec to see if the incident really happened. The remote viewers found that a large, silver object designed for transportation flew to the ground. Many people had observed the object. They found “biologicals” in the craft. Some witnesses tried to help the creatures but couldn’t do so due to language barriers. Eventually, the army showed up. There was some sort of negotiation among the parties involved. They took the biologicals inside the craft to an undisclosed location. According the report, the aliens could use remote viewing to manipulate their captures. Government officials couldn’t let the aliens loose. As a result, an official decision was made to execute the aliens. Marrs’s claims are mind-bending and provocative. He draws upon multiple lines of evidence to support how remote viewing has substantiated the existence of UFOs.

Via Express: TURKEY'S Foreign minister has said patience with Russia "has a limit" after a Russian warship fired a warning shot at a Turkish ship in the Aegean Sea, raising tensions further between the two nations. Mevlut Cavusoglu said Moscow's reaction to the Turkish boat was "exaggerated" and an over-reaction. Speaking to Italian newspaper Corriere della Serra he said: "Ours was only a fishing boat, it seems to me that the reaction of the Russian naval ship was exaggerated. "Russia and Turkey certainly have to re-establish the relations of trust that we have always had, but our patience has a limit". Just moments after his comments a Russian Black Sea corvette forced a commercial vessel under a Turkish flag to change course after it got in the way of a Crimean energy firm's boats towing oil rigs. Russian company Chernomorneftegaz said the Turkish boat had to be moved out of the way. It comes after a Russian warship fired a warning shot at a Turkish vessel in the Aegean Sea yesterday morning. Russia said the shots were fired at a Turkish shipping vessel in order to avoid a collision. They said in a statement that the boat had approached to 600m. The Russian ship had been unable to make radio contact and the Turkish vessel did not respond to flares or visual signals. After the Russian "guard ship" Smetlivy fired warning shots, the Turkish ship changed course, passing to within 540m. The statement from the Russian Defence Ministry said: "Despite numerous attempts by the crew of the Smetlivy, the crew of the Turkish fishing boat did not make radio contact and did not respond to visual signals by semaphore or warning flares. Small arms were fired in the direction of the Turkish vessel from a range that is not lethal". The Turkish military attache in Moscow was summoned to meet the Russian foreign ministry to discuss the matter, which occured at around 6am yesterday. Following the meeting, the Russian defence ministry warned Turkey to stop engaging in "provocations". They said: "The Turkish military diplomat was given a tough explanation about the potentially disastrous consequences from Ankara's reckless actions towards Russia's military contingent fighting against international terrorism in Syria. "In particular, our deep concerns about more Turkish provocations towards the Russian destroyer Smetlivy were conveyed". Cavusoglu said Russia had already "put itself in a ridiculous position" with accusations by its President Vladimir Putin that Turkey had shot down the jet to protect oil supplies from Islamic State."No-one believed it" he said. He also criticized Russia's military intervention in Syria, saying it was aimed at propping up the regime of President Bashar al-Assad, not combating Islamic State. "Unfortunately Russia is not in Syria to fight terrorists", he said, adding that only 8 percent of its air strikes had been aimed at Islamic State while 92 percent were against other groups hostile to Assad. Cavusoglu also said air strikes were not sufficient to defeat Islamic State and soldiers on the ground were necessary, according to the interview. This latest incident has occured just weeks after Turkey downed a Russian fighter jet in controversial circumstances over Syria. A Russian pilot was killed as he parachuted to the ground following the attack last month, while a rescuer also died during an operation to save the other pilot. Turkey say that the Russian jet entered their airspace despite receiving ten warnings in five minutes, while Russia say that they did not cross the border and no warnings were received.

She was a very gifted woman that called 9/11 and the Thailand tsunami. I read recently that everyday 5.000 more refugees are entering into Europe. BBC is saying it’s more like 8.000 refugees a day. Is Vanga right about Europe being eaten alive and spit back out as a wasteland? I can only hope she is not 100% accurate, but it’s not looking good for Europe. Bulgarian clairvoyant Vanga predicted that Daesh terrorists (the Arabic name of the Islamic State terrorist organization) would seize Europe. This should happen in 2016, The Daily Mirror wrote. The newspaper said that Vanga’s prophecies about terrorists in Europe were horrifying. According to the clairvoyant, Europe will cease to exist in its current form already in 2016, and the continent will turn into wasteland.Vanga also predicted the so-called Arab Spring in 2010. All will end with the establishment of the caliphate in 2043 with the center in Rome. Noteworthy, Vanga predicted 9/11 terrorist attacks and the tsunami in Thailand. In late November, ISIS militants posted a new video on the Internet, in which they said that next targets would be not only Russia, USA, France and Israel, but also Ukraine, Moldova, Switzerland and Malta – a total of 60 countries. Vanga also predicted the collapse of the United States.

Via Before It's News: Is the Syrian war and ensuing exodus modeled after the Armenian genocide? The entire Arab Spring — from start to finish — was planned in the capitals of the Zio-Anglo-American Axis just as each revolution was manufactured in the various Middle Eastern capitals. Every protest and riot throughout the Arab Spring was staged, just as every revolution and civil war had been fabricated in those nations which the Axis powers had targeted for a government overthrow. In fact, not a single Arab Spring event has occurred without the fastidious planning and precision coordination of the CIA and MI6, DGSE, and MOSSAD. The Western powers not only engineered every rebellion in the Mideast, as they continue to do so, they have been very careful to execute each coup d’état in such a way that the newly installed leaders are always loyal to them, not their respective citizenries. Only with this understanding can the current Mideast wars and conflicts, genocides and holocausts, refugee crises and exoduses be comprehended. Looking through the lens of history, particularly the most cataclysmic events of the 20th century, will likewise inform one’s understanding that history is once again repeating itself.

Via The Local: Record immigration in Sweden fuelled by soaring asylum claims is likely to push up unemployment in the medium term, the International Monetary Fund said on Wednesday. "Rising migration inflows pose upside risks to unemployment for some years", said a report by the IMF, which has previously criticized Sweden for its gap in employment levels between natives and immigrants. Based on past experience of the pace of integration "the unemployment rate could rise to about 8.5 percent by 2020, and remain elevated for some years before declining", added Wednesday's report. According to recent figures by Swedish employment agency Arbetsförmedlingen, 21.8 percent of foreign-born workers are currently without a job, more than double the overall current rate of 7.8 percent. The IMF is concerned at the time it takes migrants to assimilate. It calculates that after five years in the country only 48 percent would likely have a job and only 60 percent after 10 years. "Among the stock of migrants, the share of low-educated increased to about 28 percent in 2014, from 17 percent in 2005", it wrote. However, another recent key report by banking giant Nordea estimated that Sweden's record intake of refugees could boost the country's GDP by 0.5 percent more than previously predicted next year, with those who do manage to land a job helping to plug skills gaps on the Swedish job market. "Migration is critical for maintaining growth in the working age population which, without migration, would shrink by a cumulative three percent by 2030 and 12 percent by 2060, according to Eurostat forecasts", the IMF report agreed. But in a country with an ageing population, "further efforts to expedite the residency permit, educational assessment, and skill validation processes, are needed in view of rising numbers", it continued. The IMF called for looser laws concerning the hiring of less-qualified workers to offset the barrier into the labour market posed by high entry-level wages in the Scandinavian country, which proponents argue are essential to maintaining job security. Prime Minister Stefan Löfven has previously insisted he will achieve his goal of Sweden having the lowest unemployment rate in the EU by 2020. However, Finance Minister Magdalena Andersson noted in an interview with the Svenska Dagbladet newspaper in November that his promise was looking increasingly "harder to reach", with Sweden being expected to take in up to 190.000 asylum seekers over the whole of 2015.
Via RT: Steven Seagal may be about to go above the law after Serbian officials offered him a job training their special police forces. The Hollywood actor was in Serbia on a three-day visit and met with many of the state’s top officials, including Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic and President Tomislav Nikolic. In addition to receiving an award for his humanitarian work in the country, Seagal was asked if he would train their forces in the Japanese martial art of Aikido, in case they are ever under siege. The 63-year-old is a 7th Dan black belt in Aikido and has a large fan base in Serbia. Belgrade mayor Sinisa Mali told reporters that the Serbian people were eager to have Seagal back on their soil again. "When you have such a famous star coming to Serbia, who loves our country and our people, our desire is to have him back again", Mali said. Seagal has yet to make an executive decision on the job offer. It's not only Serbia's leaders that Seagal has met. The actor is on friendly terms with President Putin and is frequently in Russia.
