Mystery! Australian Man Emerges from Ocean with Ankles Covered in Blood

It’s winter in Australia. Shouldn’t the nasties in ocean water be hibernating or something? The experts don’t know what’s going on here.

Excerpt from The Telegraph

A teenager emerged from a beach in Australia with blood all over his legs after tiny sea bugs “ate through his skin”, leaving marine experts struggling to solve the identity the mysterious creatures.

In an incident likened to a scene from a horror film, Sam Kanizay, 16, went to Brighton beach in Melbourne on Saturday and spent 30 minutes standing in the water to sooth his legs after a football game. When he walked out, his legs were covered by creatures that are believed to be some form of flesh-eating bug.

“I walked out and saw what I thought was sand covering my calf and shook it off, and by the time I’d walked across the sand …. I looked down and noticed I had blood all over my ankles,” he told 3AW Radio.

“It took a while to get all the blood off and it came back pretty quickly… It sort of looked like hundreds of little pinholes or pin-sized bites distributed all over my ankle and the top of my foot.”

Jarrod Kanizay, Sam’s father, said his son was calm and not in any pain. But the family rushed him to hospital when it became clear that the blood “wasn’t washing away”.

“They ate through Sam’s skin and made it bleed profusely,” he said.

Mr Kanizay returned to the beach on Sunday night with a net filled with raw meat and captured tiny bugs which he believes were responsible. He then released a video of the creatures devouring the meat.

“What is really clear is these little things really love meat,” he said.

Experts have given mixed assessments of the identity of the bugs which attacked the 16-year-old, noting that the creatures filmed by Mr Kanizay may have been different to those which attacked his son.

Hospital officials initially told Sam they thought the creatures were a form of sea lice but “were all on Google and … had 10 different hypotheses” .

Richard Reina, an expert on marine biology at Monash University, agreed that the creatures were probably sea lice, noting that such attacks were “very rare” and that beachgoers should not be alarmed.

“When it happens you brush it off, or move, or get out of the water and there’s no consequence, whereas in this case, Sam was standing in cold water for quite a long time,” he told news.com.au.

“He probably thought the pins and needles he described was the cold and didn’t realise there were crustaceans chewing on his feet.”

Others said sea lice were unlikely to be the culprits as they were not known to launch such a vigorous attack.

Michael Brown, a marine expert, said he believed the creatures could be “jellyfish larvae”.

“I’ve been doing this for coming on 20 years now and I’ve never seen anything like this,” he told Channel Seven.

Jeff Weir, executive director of the Dolphin Research Institute, said the culprit was likely to be a type of amphipod, a tiny shrimp-like crustacean.

Mr Weir told ABC News he suffered a similar experience while on a night dive.

“It was very cold, probably, about this time of year, and when I got out of the water I realised my forehead was bleeding and parts of my cheeks were bleeding,” he said.

An American woman in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, went for a little ocean dip. The Daily Mail ran this photo of her leg a week ago, taken while she was ICU:

Adding to the danger posed by big sharks, we have the danger posed by tiny creatures. Maybe man is supposed to stay out of the water.

Public Health Alert! Mexican Papayas Sicken 100 Americans

According to Science 2.0, the Mexicans must be using fecal matter as fertilizer or irrigating with water contaminated by fecal matter.

The reputation that Mexicans have for defecating in the fields is a common theme when water cooler talk turns to Mexican farm workers. See comic above. In all honesty, American farmers did the same thing, but would take the time to walk to nearby woods so as not to contaminate the crops.

Americans have been duped into allowing a significant part of our foodstuffs be supplied by Mexico. If you’d like a ray of hope, Mexico’s food safety record is probably better than China’s.

A deadly salmonella outbreak linked to papayas imported from Mexico sickened an additional 64 people and expanded to 16 U.S. states, federal health officials reported on Friday.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said the source of the salmonella outbreak was traced back to Caribena brand papayas from the Carica de Campeche farm. In July, at least one New York City resident died. Another 35 people were hospitalized with salmonella as of Friday.

“When in doubt, don’t eat, sell, or serve them and throw them out,” the CDC said.

People were first sickened after eating the fruit beginning on May 17, according to the CDC. The people infected were between ages less than 1 to 95.

Health officials tested the fruit found in the Mexican farm and identified five strands of salmonella that sickened at least 109 people.

“The agency is working to identify other brands of papayas that may have originated from Carica de Campeche and facilitate recalls,” the CDC reported.

A recall was already issued on July 26 for papayas distributed by Grande Produce. The fruit was sold in U.S. markets between July 10 and July 19. The FDA plans to test more papayas imported from Mexico to identify other possible farms with contaminated fruit.

Paul Craig Roberts Warns, “Trump will now become the war president”

I wonder if the radiation cloud over the United States will drift all the way to Australia. Maybe we should be thinking of moving there.

One unanswered question in PCR’s essay is how are the banksters going to profit from the ultimate war if they’re dead. They must be counting on holing up in those underground bunkers we keep reading about, or fleeing to their New Zealand retreats before the big bombs go off.

Paul Craig Roberts

President Trump has been defeated by the military/security complex and forced into continuing the orchestrated and dangerous tensions with Russia. Trump’s defeat has taught the Russians the lesson I have been trying to teach them for years, and that is that Russia is much more valuable to Washington as an enemy than as a friend.

Do we now conclude with Russia’s Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev that Trump is washed up and “utterly powerless?” I think not. Trump is by nature a leader. He wants to be out front, and that is where his personality will compel him to be. Having been prevented by the military/security complex, both US political parties, the presstitute media, the liberal-progressive-left, and Washington’s European vassals from being out front as a leader for peace, Trump will now be the leader for war. This is the only permissible role that the CIA and armaments industry will permit him to have.

Losing the chance for peace might cost all of us our lives. Now that Russia and China see that Washington is unwilling to share the world stage with them, Russia and China will have to become more confrontational with Washington in order to prevent Washington from marginalizing them. Preparations for war will become central in order to protect the interests of the two countries. The situation is far more dangerous than at any time of the Cold War.

The foolish American liberal-progressive-left, wrapped up as they are in Identity Politics and hatred of “the Trump deplorables,” joined the military/security complex’s attack on Trump. So did the whores, who pretend to be a Western media, and Washington’s European vassals, not one of whom had enough intelligence to see that the outcome of the attack on Trump would be an escalation of conflict with Russia, conflict that is not in Europe’s business and security interests.

Washington is already raising the violence threshold. The same lies that Washington told about Saddam Hussein, Gadaffi, Assad, Iran, Serbia and Russia are now being told about Venezuela. The American presstitutes duly report the lies handed to them by the CIA just as Udo Ulfkotte and Seymour Hersh report. These lies comprise the propaganda that conditions Western peoples to accept the coming US coup against the democratic government in Venezuela and its replacement with a Washington-compliant government that will permit the renewal of US corporate exploitation of Venezuela.

As the productive elements of American capitalism fall away, the exploitative elements become its essence. After Venezuela, there will be more South American victims. As reduced tensions with Russia are no longer in prospect, there is no reason for the US to abandon its and Israel’s determination to overthrow the Syrian government and then the Iranian government.

The easy wars against Iraq, Libya, and Somalia are to be followed by far more perilous conflict with Iran, Russia, and China

This is the outcome of John Brennan’s defeat of President Trump.

UPDATE: The escalation of the conflict with Russia has begun. US vice president Mike Pence made false allegations against Russia yesterday (Aug. 2) in Montenegro designed to panic Montenegrins into joining NATO. The two-decade march of NATO eastward despite Washington’s promise to the contrary, surely has taught Russia that no agreement with Washington can ever be trusted. So why does Russia continue to seek agreements with Washington?

Joint S. Korea and USA Military Drill Shows Off Firepower in Response to Nork ICBM Threat That Allegedly Puts the U.S. within Range

There has not been an issue concerning whether the North Koreans would continue to test missiles. They are going to keep on keeping on.

The true unknown is what the United States government is going to do about it.

One theory you may run across on the Internet has President Trump going to war with the North with General Mike Kelly, his new Chief of Staff, advising him.

It’s hard to see how a war on the North would not inflict major damage on the South.

There’s a lot that Trump can do short of war, as detailed in this CNN piece.

If we’re not being conned by the (((neocons))) the way we were conned about Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction, then economic and diplomatic pressure will surely be applied to the Communist regime.

The following story about yesterday’s missile test explains why Trump is concerned, along with others in the region.

Excerpt from the The Globe and Mail

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said Saturday the second flight test of an intercontinental ballistic missile demonstrated his country can hit the U.S. mainland, hours after the launch left analysts concluding that a wide swath of the United States, including Los Angeles and Chicago, is now in range of North Korean weapons.

The Korean Central News Agency said that Kim expressed “great satisfaction” after the Hwasong-14 missile reached a maximum height of 3,725 kilometres and travelled 998 kilometres before accurately landing in waters off Japan. The agency said that the test was aimed at confirming the maximum range and other technical aspects of the missile it says was capable of delivering a “large-sized, heavy nuclear warhead.”

Analysts had estimated that the North’s first ICBM on July 4 could have reached Alaska, and said that the latest missile appeared to extend that range significantly.

Immediately after the launch, U.S. and South Korean forces conducted live-fire exercises. South Korean Defence Minister Song Young-moo called for the deployment of strategic U.S. military assets — which usually means stealth bombers and aircraft carriers — as well as additional launchers of an advanced U.S. anti-missile system.

Japanese government spokesman Yoshihide Suga said the missile, launched late Friday night, flew for about 45 minutes — about five minutes longer than the first. The missile was launched on very high trajectory, which limited the distance it travelled, and landed west of Japan’s island of Hokkaido.

The KCNA quoted Kim as saying that the launch reaffirmed the reliability of the country’s ICBM system and an ability to fire at “random regions and locations at random times” with the “entire” U.S. mainland now within range. The agency said that the test confirmed important features of the missile system, such as the proper separation of the warhead and controlling its movement and detonation after atmospheric re-entry.

Kim said the launch sent a “serious warning” to the United States, which has been “meaninglessly blowing its trumpet” with threats of war and stronger sanctions, the KCNA said.

The North Korean flight data was similar to assessments by the United States, South Korea and Japan.

David Wright, a physicist and co-director of the global security program at the Union of Concerned Scientists, said that if reports of the missile’s maximum altitude and flight time are correct, it would have a theoretical range of at least 10,400 kilometres (about 6,500 miles). That means it could have reached Los Angeles, Denver or Chicago, depending on variables such as the size and weight of the warhead that would be carried atop such a missile in an actual attack.

President Donald Trump issued a statement condemning the missile test as a threat to the world, and rejecting North Korea’s claim that nuclear weapons ensure its security. “In reality, they have the opposite effect,” he said.

Trump said the weapons and tests “further isolate North Korea, weaken its economy, and deprive its people.” He vowed to “take all necessary steps” to ensure the security of the U.S. and its allies.

Japanese Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida said he told U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in a phone call that the second missile test greatly increased the threat from Pyongyang. He said two sides agreed to consider all means necessary to exert the utmost pressure on North Korea. They reiterated calls for new sanctions and to work closely together with South Korea along with efforts by China and Russia.

China, meanwhile, urged its ally North Korea to abide by U.N. Security Council resolutions and halt any moves that could escalate tensions on the Korean Peninsula.

Washington and its allies have watched with growing concern as Pyongyang has made significant progress toward its goal of having all of the U.S. within range of its missiles to counter what it labels as U.S. aggression. There are other hurdles, including building nuclear warheads to fit on those missiles and ensuring reliability. But many analysts have been surprised by how quickly leader Kim Jong Un has developed North Korea’s nuclear and missile programs despite several rounds of U.N. Security Council sanctions that have squeezed the impoverished country’s economy.

Trump has said he will not allow North Korea to obtain an ICBM that can deliver a nuclear warhead. But this week, the Defence Intelligence Agency reportedly concluded that the North will have a reliable ICBM capable of carrying a nuclear weapon as early as next year, in an assessment that trimmed two years from the agency’s earlier estimate.

Egyptian Knifeman Chatted Nicely in German with Two Women Tourists Before Killing Them

ABDEL-RAHMAN SHAABAN.

A Muslim knifeman repaid Angela Merkel’s kindness in allowing millions of Muslims to migrate to Germany by killing two German women in Egypt.

Is there anyone in Germany who abides by the principle of an eye for an eye?

End Islam before Islam ends the West.

In the meantime, stay out of Egypt, ladies.

Excerpt from ABC News

The Egyptian university graduate who stabbed two German women to death at a popular Red Sea resort first sat and spoke to them in fluent German before producing a large kitchen knife and attacking them, security officials said Saturday.

Leaving them for dead, 29-year-old Abdel-Rahman Shaaban fled the scene, chased by hotel workers and security guards. He rushed into the hotel next door where he attacked and wounded four female tourists who, according to local media reports, included two Armenians, one from Ukraine and another from the Czech Republic.

“Stay back, I am not after Egyptians,” Shaaban shouted in Arabic at his pursuers, according to the officials. They eventually caught up with him, disarmed and pinned him down and later handed him over to the police. Shaaban stabbed the women in the face, neck and feet, said the officials.

No group claimed responsibility for the Friday attack, but it appeared to have been inspired by recent calls made by the local affiliate of the extremist Islamic State group on its followers to attack Egypt’s minority Christians and foreign tourists.

The officials said Abdel-Rahman hails from the Nile Delta province of Kafr el-Sheikh where he attended the business school of the local branch of Al-Azhar University — the world’s foremost seat of learning of Sunni Islam and the target of mounting criticism in recent months over its alleged radical teachings and doctrinal rigidity.

Investigators were still trying to determine how Shaaban came to be in Hurghada, one of Egypt’s main Red Sea resorts, popular for its year-round sunny weather and diving.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media.

A statement by the national security prosecution’s office, which is questioning Shaaban in Cairo, said Saturday that his motives and ideological convictions remained unclear. “The characterization of the action committed by the culprit, whether it is an individual act, criminal or terrorist, is not clear to the prosecution at this time,” said the statement.

Police are meanwhile interviewing 15 hotel workers to piece together what happened.

Germany on Saturday gave the first official confirmation that the two tourists killed by Shaaban were German nationals, but gave no other information. Local German media reports, however, said the two were residing in Hurghada, not tourists.

In a statement, the German Foreign Ministry said: “According to everything that we know, this act was aimed at foreign tourists — a particularly perfidious and criminal act that leaves us sad, dismayed and angry.”

The attack on the tourists took place just hours after five policemen were killed in a shooting near some of Egypt’s most famous pyramids in the greater Cairo area. No group claimed responsibility for that attack, which bore the hallmarks of a militant group known as Hasm that has been behind similar attacks in recent months.

Authorities say Hasm is a splinter faction of the Muslim Brotherhood, an Islamist group that was outlawed and declared a terrorist organization several months after the military in July 2013 ousted Mohammed Morsi, a senior leader of the Brotherhood who was elected president in 2012.

Friday’s attacks are likely to further impact Egypt’s tourism industry — a backbone of the country’s economy that employs millions of people but which has been decimated by the political turmoil and lacking security roiling the country since the 2011 Arab Spring uprising.

On Saturday, tight security was in place at Hurghada, with additional checkpoints at the city’s entry and exit points and reinforced security at tourist sites, including where the attack took place.

Egypt has been rocked by deadly suicide bombings, drive-by shootings and other attacks since Morsi’s ouster four years ago. The violence has been concentrated in the northern Sinai Peninsula, but attacks have spread to the mainland, including the capital.

The last time tourists were attacked in Hurghada was in January 2016, when two Austrians and a Swede were stabbed by two suspected militants, also at a hotel. They were only lightly wounded. Security forces shot the attackers, killing one and wounding the other before arresting him.

Stupid Africans Try to Blockade French Highway, Trucker Answers with Neat Evasive Maneuver

It’s too bad that French truckers don’t carry shotguns. A blast in their ugly black faces would help rein in the problem. I’ve been posting these videos for a couple of years now and the French police seem to be doing nothing. I guess it’s racist to rein in the spooks.

The video is about 30 seconds long.

First Driver Death in Calais After Migrants Drag Tree Trunks onto Motorway:

“A van driver has died in an accident at Calais after migrants dragged tree trunks onto the A16 motorway in a bid to slow traffic and break into vehicles bound for Britain.”

Breitbart reports that one driver has died from the antics of these shitskins.

A van driver has died in an accident at Calais after migrants dragged tree trunks onto the A16 motorway in a bid to slow traffic and break into vehicles bound for Britain.
At just before 4am on Tuesday, two trucks were forced to suddenly brake so as to avoid the tree trunks placed by migrants to block the road.

A third van, coming up from behind, was unable to stop in time and crashed into the other vehicles. According to Franceinfo the Renault Master — which was registered in Poland — caught fire, and its driver died in the accident.

Local media reports the death of the driver is the first at Calais caused by the actions of migrants determined to break into Britain. The identity of the deceased is not yet known at this stage, “given the state of the body”, said a spokesman for the Pas-de-Calais prefecture.

Nine Eritreans were arrested on suspicion of having placed tree trunks on the road, and are being held in police custody.

Dangerous roadblocks were being set up by migrants on an almost nightly basis before the Calais “Jungle” camp was dismantled in October last year. But the practice has started up again, and violence begun to escalate once more since May as migrants from Africa and Asia have started to return to the French port.

Chinese Flight Delayed After Woman Throws Coins into Engine for “Good Luck”

The experts tell us that the Chinese on average are smarter than white people.

An IQ test should not be the only criteria for American immigration policy, although it would be better than what we have now.

The woman in this story out of China was just doing what her culture requires her to do. Chinese culture tells Chinese immigrants into America to eat dogs and cats, gamble, etc. We don’t need them.

South China Morning Post

A flight from Shanghai to Guangzhou was delayed after an elderly woman passenger was suspected of throwing coins into the plane’s engine to ensure “good luck”, mainland media reported.

China Southern Airlines Flight 380 was held up at the Shanghai Pudong International Airport after an elderly woman passenger caused a disruption, according to the airlines official WeChat account. An investigation into the incident is under way.

Passengers boarding the flight reportedly saw an elderly woman throwing coins at the engine for “blessings” from the middle of the boarding staircase and alerted the crew.

Ground staff said the woman, who appeared to be about 80 and had limited mobility, was accompanied by her husband, daughter and son-in-law.

After maintenance crew inspected the aircraft, they found nine coins in one engine.

The captain was quoted as saying the metal, if sucked up by the engine, could have caused serious damage, including failure.

The flight was later given a green light and took off at 5.52pm, more than five hours late. It is scheduled to arrive in Guangzhou at 8.14pm.

China Southern Airlines told reporters that passengers were reminded to comply with civil aviation laws and regulations, which prohibit behaviour that could jeopardise the safety of the flight.

Mainland air travellers have been responsible for several safety incidents in recent years, including opening emergency doors and assaulting cabin crew. Beijing has responded by creating a tourist black list, with offenders banned from travel.

That plane could have crashed with no one the wiser as the cause if others had not seen her throwing the coins into the engine.

Be alert when traveling with Chinese passengers.
