    No matter how you slice it, an attempted coup is underway in Venezuela. Venezuela: Call It What It Is—a Coup WWW.THENATION.COM The power grab of the right’s Juan Guaidó is brazenly unconstitutional. If you're only going to read one article about the apparent US-backed coup currently underway in Venezuela, make it this one.

I must admit, this article really triggered my imagination. What do you think, was the object just an "ordinary" asteroid or was it actually a fully operational probe sent intentionally to Earth’s vicinity by an alien civilization?

    If the BBC is politically neutral, how does it explain Andrew Neil? | Owen Jones | Opinion | The Guardian WWW.THEGUARDIAN.COM He symbolises the rightwing domination of our media. Yet a politics presenter as aligned to the left would not be tolerated, writes Guardian columnist Owen Jones The BBC cannot call itself politically neutral if it continues to employ prominent right-wingers like Andrew Neil that actively censors criticism he doesn't like on his show.

    This study shows that people over 65-years-old with extreme right-wing opinions spread more fake news and misinformation on social media than anyone else during the US Presidential election in 2016. Remember that next time someone blames young people or millennials.

    Ocasio-Cortez floats 70 percent tax on the super wealthy to fund Green New Deal - POLITICO WWW.POLITICO.COM "There’s an element where yeah, people are going to have to start paying their fair share in taxes," she said. Yes, this is exactly what we need to be doing to both combat the rising levels of inequality that's tearing our societies apart and to stop climate change from destroying the prospects of organized human existence on Earth.

    While Donald Trump works to distract the public, his administration is working to dismantle every aspect of government that benefits the people - and ultimately destroying the prospects for human existence. Watch and listen to Noam Chomsky: Trump is a distraction, the Republican party is the most dangerous organization in human history.

    Everyone on the left that downplays (or even refuse to acknowledge) Bashar al-Assad's war crimes in Syria needs to read this: Dear Bashar al-Assad Apologists: Your Hero Is a War Criminal Even If He Didn’t Gas Syrians

    That's true @Sanjo but then again, most people would look smarter and more sophisticated next to Trump. What's interesting though is that when the Swedish prime minister was asked what kind of similarities the two shared, Löfven said that "we both come from outside politics, into politics." But while Trump talks a lot about not being a rich elitist (like those other politicians), despite that his background and behavior clearly shows otherwise, the Swedish prime minister has a real "blue collar" background. Löfven has no university education and is a welder by background. He's a real working man that, as you said, looked and behaved more respectful, educated, and sophisticated compared to Trump. If Trump actually had any kind of self-awareness I bet he would be fuming after that meeting and press conference.

    Huh... armed officer at Parkland high school resigns after he did nothing during deadly shooting. Two decades after Columbine over 10,000 school police officers have been hired to prevent another school shooting from happening. But two decades later they haven't stopped a single school shooting. But they've been effective in terrorizing kids and students, mostly students of color, for simple routine behavior violations smh...

    I lived in the Uk when Tony Blair and Gordan Brown were prime minister. I have to say that I miss the Labour Party. They had amazing social justice policies. Their social justice mantra can only be applauded. The biggest disadvantage for conservatives is they cut funding for social programmes. I hear crime, unemployment and homelessness have increased under the conservatives. It's gone back to the era of Margret Thatcher.Jeremy may not be such a bad idea.

    Be sure to check out this excellent video by Aaron Bastani in which he takes a hard look on the latest impartiality-gaffe by the BBC (see the previous one from last week) on their top political TV show Question Time with Fiona Bruce. "The BBC is meant to stop fake news, not amplify it. Last week on the BBC's Question Time Diane Abbott was subject to disgraceful treatment. The host Fiona Bruce was neither accurate nor impartial. Isabel Oakeshott’s dishonesty was constantly unchallenged. Tory minister Rory Stewart couldn't believe his luck in how biased the chairing was." The BBC cannot honestly call itself politically neutral and unbiased if it continues like this!

    Vattenkonflikten mellan Israel och Palestina har sin grund i regionens geografiska, klimatologiska, hydrogeologiska och demografiska förutsättningar som tillsammans medför svår vattenbrist. Men för många palestinier uppfattas vattenbristen som huvudsakligen en politiskt framkallad sådan. Bilden ovan visar Israelisk militär som förstör en vattenlagringsanläggning som används av palestinska jordbrukare utanför byn Yatta i Västbanken, nära den israeliska bosättningen Sosia. Israel och Palestina delar tre vattenkällor emellan sig varav den ena är Jordanfloden och de andra två är främst underjordiska akvifärer. En betydande del av Israels vattentillgångar kommer från dessa delade vattenkällor som ligger under palestinska Västbanken. Enligt vissa beräkningar så står dessa vattenkällor för cirka 35% av den totala vattenmängden som används av Israel. Under 2015 så pumpade Israel upp hela 480 miljoner kubikmeter från dessa vattenkällor medan Palestinierna använde det återstående vattnet, cirka 120 miljoner kubikmeter. Liknande volymer har nyttjats av de båda parterna sedan före 1967. Men sedan dess har populationen i både Palestina och Israel ökat markant. Israel betraktar vatten som en nationell tillgång och vattentillgångarna är hårt skyddade enligt lag, sedan 1967 har Israel klassificerat all vattenresursdata som statshemligheter. Det är därmed svårt att få fram exakta siffror på landets vattenförbrukning. Men det beräknas att Israel använder omkring 90% av den totala vattenmängden som finns tillgängligt mellan Israel och Palestina, och detta trots att den stora majoriteten av dessa vattenkällor finns belägna i inom palestinskt territorium. I genomsnitt konsumerar Israeler cirka 350 liter per person och dag, vilket kan jämföras med palestinier som i genomsnitt lever på cirka 76 liter vatten. WHO rekommenderar 100 liter för grundläggande mänsklig konsumtion. Vattenbristen och vattenföroreningarna är ett akut folkhälsoproblem som resulterar i att vattenburna sjukdomar sprids. Tack vare effektiva insatser av palestinska myndigheter, WHO, och UNICEF så har den värsta dödligheten minskat under de senaste årtionden. Men olika vattenburna sjukdomar är fortfarande allvarliga hälsoproblem för främst barn i Palestina. Den positiva utvecklingen från de senaste 30 åren har börjat erodera och man ser nu en försämring när det kommer till diarré och andra vattenburna sjukdomar. Osloavtalet II behandlar bland annat vattenfrågan i Västbanken och Gazaremsan och var det första avtalet som var tydligt när det kom till palestiniernas vattenrättigheter. Avtalet upprättade exempelvis ett ramverk för förvaltningen och uppdelningen av de delade vattenresurserna och inrättandet av en gemensam vattenkommitté (JWC) samt en palestinsk vattenmyndighet (PWA). Enligt avtalet har JWC enbart jurisdiktion över vatten- och avloppsfrågor i Västbanken. I och med denna begränsning så har palestinierna ingen möjlighet att påverka beslut som berör Jordanfloden eller de vattenkällor som sträcker sig in i Israel från Palestina. Dessutom måste den israeliska civila administrationen (CA) acceptera alla vatteninfrastrukturprojekt som JWC godkänner – processen är alltså väldigt komplex, byråkratisk och långdragen. Och när som helst under processen kan en israelisk byråkrat eller civil administratör blockera eller försena ett palestinskt vattenprojekt. Även när ett projekt beviljas tillstånd från alla instanser så tar hela processen ofta ett år eller mer tills den är helt klar. Israel har vetorätt i JWC och oftast slutar processen med ett avslag och palestinierna får sällan tillstånd att borra nya brunnar, samtidigt som detta fritt beviljas för de israeliska bosättningarna. Bland de frågor som fortfarande står obesvarade i konflikten mellan palestinier och israeler så är kontrollen och användandet av dessa vattenkällor fortfarande inte lösta. Det är därmed inte så svårt att föreställa sig hur vattenfrågan är en stor bidragande orsak till den fortsatta konflikten mellan israeler och palestinier.
