http://www.freeintertv.com/news_pic/10-happiest-countries.jpgWould a taste of the finest Swiss chocolate make you happy? Or soaking in the warm Icelandic springs? Perhaps the great jazz and rock music scene in Denmark is for you?

It's not just the fun activities that make locals and travelers to those countries happy, according to the third World Happiness Report, released by the Sustainable Development Solutions Network for the United Nations on April 23.

People who live in the happiest countries have longer life expectancies and more social support, experience more generosity, have more freedom to make life choices, have lower perceptions of corruption and have a higher gross domestic product per capita, the report shows.

The tiny country of Bhutan, a very happy country famous for measuring the "Gross National Happiness" of its people, gets the credit for focusing world attention on happiness: Its Prime Minister proposed the idea of a World Happiness Day to the United Nations in 2011.

Recognizing "happiness and well-being as universal goals and aspirations in the lives of human beings around the world," the U.N. General Assembly declared March 20 as World Happiness Day in 2012. This officially designated happy date marked its fourth year last month.

Through the happiness report, the Sustainable Development Solutions Network hopes to encourage governments at every level to measure and improve their people's happiness.
http://www.freeintertv.com/news_pic/51010.jpgThe apparent desperation of those who support the Syrian "opposition", insinuating that the Syrian Government used chemical weaponry without a shred of evidence, using photographs to prove the case, taken in Iraq in 2003, using dodgy proof from the King of Spin, the BBC, spells out a sorry story similar to those of Libya and Iraq.

Do you remember Colin Powell's "magnificent" foreign intelligence work providing a smoking gun to justify an attack against Iraq? Photographs of milk factories, complete with a dodgy dossier copied and pasted from the Net from a decade earlier. And this time around, a telling déjà vu from none other than John Kerry, underlining his speech calling for action against Syria with a BBC photo showing a kid leaping over hundreds of bodies lined up in rows wearing shrouds. In fact it was taken in Iraq, in 2003. A decade earlier. Wrong country, wrong decade...but what the heck, eh? Is Congress going to vote for this? Perhaps the members should listen to the people they represent.

Moral of the story: do not use British information as "proof" and do not trust a word US Secretaries of State have to say.
Remember the source of the latest "case" against President Assad's supposed use of chemical weaponry in Ghouta on August 21? The source was Doctors without Frontiers, an instrument financed by corporate elitists, who claimed there were 355 people killed. The corporate media concentrated on the children, they purposefully ignored the Syrian soldiers lying in bed caught in the same attack. So where is the figure of nearly one thousand five hundred dead peddled by Kerry?

Remember the declarations by the United Nations' Carla del Ponte, a member of the UN Independent International Commission of Inquiry on Syria, that there are "strong, concrete suspicions" that the Syrian opposition forces had used chemical weaponry? Why does John Kerry not bomb them, then?
http://www.freeintertv.com/news_pic/50995.jpgAs some sickening and sycophantic media reports begin the day with sniveling and groveling titles such as "The world is waiting for Obama", some home truths: The world is watching Obama, the world is watching Cameron, the world is watching NATO and the UN team and something dark is lunging behind its eyes.

In the United Kingdom, e-mails are this very day circulating as to how to start a movement de-selecting Members of Parliament who vote in favour of wars without consulting their constituents. After all, they say the system is democratic, and as it is, how democratic is a system which kowtows to the whims and caprices of the lobbies which control Washington, which use London as their bedboy? And how "patriotic" are British Prime Ministers from both sides of the party divide involving their nation in war after war after war which has nothing to do with Britain, destroying countries, murdering civilians and committing war crimes just so that Washington can (reluctantly) talk of "a special relationship" from time to time and London can sigh romantically kidding itself that its rogue colony will one day come back to mommy and join the Commonwealth?
http://www.freeintertv.com/news_pic/46125.jpgThe U.S. government didn't rescue the banks. The Federal Reserve (FED) did. U.S. taxpayers did not pay for this rescue as is commonly believed. The Federal Reserve is overseen by the U.S. government, but it is a conglomeration of private banks that print America's money. The U.S. government pays interest on the money it asks the FED to print. It's unconstitutional because the U.S. Constitution says that only Congress can print money, but Congress never exercised that right and outsourced it to a national bank and then to the Federal Reserve in 1913. The U.S. government owes trillions of dollars to FED for printing its own money! Incredible! President John F. Kennedy wanted to bypass the FED and print money directly. Look what happened to him. The bankers of the FED rule the world politics and U.S. presidents including Obama.
The U.S. owes more money to the FED than to China! The Federal Reserve is owned by private families. They literally rule world politics.

John F. Kennedy signed an Executive order 00001 in May of 1963 to bypass the Federal Reserve so that the United States can print its own money directly and wouldn't have to pay any interest. Look what happened to Kennedy. He got shot just six months after!
http://www.freeintertv.com/news_pic/46165.jpgVladimir Putin took part in his tenth question-and-answer session in Moscow on December 15. This year, Putin appeared in the program as the sitting Prime Minister and as a presidential candidate. The host of the program said that the recent two weeks had been rich with political events in Russia. Putin praised the participants of the meetings for fair and free elections.

The first question to the prime minister was about the elections to the State Duma of December 4 and the mass meeting of protest on Bolotnaya Square.

"The fact that people express their point of view is absolutely normal as long as everyone acts within the framework of the law," he said. He said that he was glad to see young people expressing their active political positions. "I am glad to see that. If it is a result of the "Putin regime" then it's good, I don't see anything extraordinary about it," he said.

The results of the elections obviously reflect the things that have been happening in the country recently, he said. Opposition will always point out unfairness in all elections. It is a question of political culture in which form they do it, the prime minister said. The primary goal is the presidential election, so one should minimize the opportunity of pointing out what kind of elections they will be - fair or not.
