Photo: Lucky hermit crab scores gorgeous home

Of this sunlit jewel of a beachfront “house,” photographer Bob Peterson writes:

This beautiful apple murex shell (Phyllonotus pomum), inhabited by a lucky hermit crab, ended up perfectly perched upon a limestone rock at low tide. I didn’t adjust its position in any way. A cool place to snooze away the morning while awaiting the return of the tide!

Can’t help but wonder, do they make those in human size?

Photo: Cue the Barry White for these sea slug sweethearts

In the words of Cole Porter, “birds do it, bees do it, even educated sea slugs do it”? OK, so maybe Porter was crooning about love, not the curious mating techniques of Nembrotha purpureolineata, and yes that was educated fleas, but still. Love is in the air and with that in mind, here’s a glance at how the nudibranch sea slugs do Cole Porter proud.

Thanks to John Turnbull for this great shot, taken at The Steps in Australia’s Kurnell Botany Bay National Park.

Photo Tutorial on the Death Squad Helmets

The stethoscope is the most important tool in emergency care. Deep state msm has not noticed the death squad Helmets do not have even one to share.

As the Hollywood fifth column persists in acting as the Pentagon and State Department’s public relations bureau, glorifying terrorists against Syria, yet another fraudumentary supporting the death squad Helmets has been nominated for an Oscar.  Previous hoaxes have all won awards, but they were mini-frauds.  The current nominee, The Last Men in Aleppo, is a full length feature.  It is suitable for a voyeuristic audience stuck in arrested development of comic book heroes.  Its title — perhaps subconsciously — erases women (invisible under terrorist occupation, as they are literally caged, tortured, imprisoned, or used as sex slaves), and obliterates the existence of men in the post liberated city.

This author remains enraged at the arrogance of the backers of phony first responders.  Despite the tens of millions in funding from the US, UK, and other EU countries, omitted from the expensive choreography, are the foundations of emergency care:  Stethoscope, spinal precautions and related orthotics, and CPR.  It is an abomination that only one organization of actual health care providers has raised its voice in condemnation of these malignant fakes — an abomination worsened when the legitimate organization was intentionally sabotaged by a tenuous ‘progressive veterans’ website (filled with lies and mis-quotes).

SyriaNews has previously, massively documented the atrocities of the CIA and MI-6 armed and funded death squad Helmets, we shall offer a photographic tutorial.  Many are from the White Helmets/al Nusra snuff video of 4 April 2017, taken in Khan Sheikhoun. Despite Nusra being on the US terrorist list, and considered a terrorist organization by the UN and most European countries, Nusra’s word was made gospel by the war pimping, deep state msm.

This is fraudumentarian Fayyad, sporting his $200 coif.  He claims to have been incarcerated and double-tortured (no end to the bathos),  despite showing no signs of damage, such as a limp, a mangled arm, some post-double-torture permanent disfigurement.  He has stated that the organ trading death squad Helmets made him “believe in humanity.”  Apparently the savages also make him believe in the neo-McCarthy witch hunts (or, preemptive sour grapes).

In December, this reporter from The Guardian launched the ‘Save Idlib Terrorists!’ campaign.

Last year, Raed al Saleh, cell phone salesman cum fake first responder without a stethoscope, was listed in Time‘s most influential people (perhaps the Luces’ penchant for LSD is permanently mandated for its publishers?).

Founder of the death squad Helmets is actually British knight and mercenary, James Le Mesurier.

The point man for the Khan Sheikhoun GB hoax was a British illegal, previously indicted on terrorism charges, and whose medical license was permanently revoked.  These facts were omitted by the msm that continues to cheer the Nusra death squads as humanitarians.

Brit terrorist, illegal, undoctor headed into his man cave fake hospital, calls the Helmets “brave.”
Despite draconian sanctions, this illegal, not doctor is allowed to raise money thru a Brit charity under investigation by the UK.

Here, the death squad Helmets stand on the corpses of Syrian Arab Army soldiers, whom they murdered, and whose boots they stole.  This is what the monsters of Congress support when they hashtag Save Daraa.

White Helmets murder Syrian soldiers. Western msm attacks independent journalists who report this.

This clip was prominently featured by international media.  From Khan Sheikhoun, in a stolen home used as a fake hospital, some idiot is faking bagging a half-naked child.  One does not smother with a hand, the face of a patient in respiratory distress, nor does one bag a patient in the position where gravity forces one lung to lean on another.

Smothering and lung-crushing unnoticed by deep state MSM because the death squad Helmets are humanitarians!

Again, the fact of gravity is ignored, in this White Helmets clip in Khan Sheikhoun.  Real froth could not defy the gravity thing.

Godly White Helmets can even reverse gravity.

Inside the home stolen by the al Nusra White Helmets is a fake emergency room, showing fake drama, complete with useless paper surgical masks, and zero stethoscopes.

Impunity of the fraudulent White Helmets & MSM sponsors: GB is both pneumonic and transdermal.
White Helmets were stripping children almost naked, on 4 April. Cover story was to hose them down to wash off the unGB. This child is dry.

This picture/scene from the alleged chemical attack in Syria yesterday was clearly set up and deliberately and perversely modeled not only as a orgy, but also morbid, macabre pedophilia-cum-horror — by someone well versed in art and tradition of Western classical painting.  This photo has also been very popular with all the established fellow travelers and bedfellows of al Qaeda and ISIS in Syria.  This is, indeed, true war porn. A psy-op served to the public in order to whitewash and promote al Qaeda or the genocidal war on Syria via al Qaeda proxy.

More deviant violence: White Helmets men watch as child stripped of her clothes nearly gets her arm broken.

Compare the manhandling of children by the humanitarian death squad Helmets, to the sweetness of Shahd, a little girl treated for wounds when the friends of the Helmets blew up buses in al Rashidin.

Shahd’s balloons are an important part of her medical care. Her doctors and nurses fixed her wounds and made her laugh with balloons just for her.

The White Helmets were not all on the same page, though.  Though GB is transdermal and pneumonic, it is not a blistering agent.  Perhaps this half-naked boy missed the casting call for the BBC’s  zombie apocalypse show.

GB is not a blistering agent.

This part of the video clip is also misplaced — though it always is fascinating to see those reputedly to have been pulled from the rubble of buildings, able to immediately walk independently.

Not a speck of gray dust on the immaculately clean white shirt.

The original video of the ghastly carnage in Khan Sheikhoun, on 4 April, was taken by, and uploaded, by the White Helmets.  It is possible that SAMS demanded its removal, as it showed brutality, torture of children, and death. GB was the hoax.  There was no chlorine, no mustard gas.  The agonizing deaths shown in the death squad Helmets video pointed to the fast acting poison, dubbed Sunnah2 by terrorists in a makeshift lab in Erdoganstan.  That poison was demonstrated on a rabbit, 21 December 2012, and the FSA savages threatened to unleash it against the Syrian people.  On 4 April 2017, they did.

21 December 2012: FSA terrorist demonstrated the ugly efficiency of a new poison and threatened to use it to murder Syrians in Latakia with it.
Cute rabbit taking its last, agonal breaths
Rabbit forced to ingest poisoned water.
No comfort measures were given to this poisoned child, to ameliorate his painful last breaths.
It’s hard to imagine that any politician could watch the heinous snuff video of the White Helmets in Nusra occupied Idlib, and truly believe the terrorists.

It is even harder to believe that the great drainer of swamps, President Donald J. Trump, followed fake news! CNN, followed the lies of an illegal in Syria, to bomb Syrian Arab Army soldiers — and nobody noticed.  Few also noticed “Mad Dog” Mattis’ recent acknowledgment that there was no evidence of chemical weapons use in Khan Sheikhoun.

The week before the horrors committed against mostly Syrian children, in Khan Sheikhoun, 250 civilians had been kidnapped from the nearby villages of Majal and Khattab.

On 9 February, journalist Vanessa Beeley, who has done ground-breaking investigative work on the White Helmets, uploaded a video to YouTube.  Syrian children have been herded into a van.  One girl sits inside, already painted in gray dust, with fake blood splashed about.  A boy gets out of the van and is forced back in.  A woman screams for her child.

Have these children been kidnapped, to be made into corpses by the White Helmets’ next snuff movie?

Will these savages receive the Oscar, for their slaughter?

State Dept and Saudi terrorist on Treasury’s SDN hit list, Muhaysini both cheer the Helmets as “heroes.”

It appears that Gurgle is also censoring the website, Clarity of Signal in its search engine (which it has done to SyriaNews).  It contains massive photographic evidence of the weaponized death squad Helmets.

For The First Time Ever, A Baby With Down Syndrome Won The Gerber Photo Contest

By  Amanda Froelich Truth Theory

Meet Lucas Warren, a 1-year-old baby from Dalton, Georgia. The outgoing infant was recently named the 2018 Gerber baby. This is huge news, for he is the first infant with Down syndrome to be named a Gerber baby since the contest began in 2010.

Lucas’s mom, Cortney, told TODAY Parents:

“He’s very outgoing and never meets a stranger. He loves to play, loves to laugh and loves to make other people laugh.”

Cortney said she entered Lucas into the Gerber contest on a whim. A relative pointed out an ad seeking submissions, so she posted a photo of the 1-year-old on her Instagram and used the contest’s hashtags. Before long, Cortney and her husband, Jason, received the news that Lucas was chosen to be the 2018 Gerber Spokesbaby. All in all, there were more than 140,000 entries.

Said Bill Partyka, CEO and president of Gerber:

“Every year, we choose the baby who best exemplifies Gerber’s longstanding heritage of recognizing that every baby is a Gerber baby. This year, Lucas is the perfect fit.”

Partyka added that Lucas’s smile and charming expression won over the hearts of the entire Gerber team.

“We’re hoping this will impact everyone — that it will shed a little bit of light on the special needs community and help more individuals with special needs be accepted and not limited,” said Lucas’s dad, Jason. “They have the potential to change the world, just like everybody else.”

Cortney hopes her son is not just seen as a baby with Down syndrome, but as a funny, energetic child who loves music and socializing.

“He may have Down syndrome, but he’s always Lucas first,” said Cortney. “He’s got an awesome personality and he goes through the milestones of every child… we’re hoping when he grows up and looks back on this, he’ll be proud of himself and not ashamed of his disability.”

Katie Driscoll, founder and president of Changing the Face of Beauty — a non-profit that advocates for equal representation of people with disabilities in advertising and media, applauded the development.

”We believe if brands represent children with a disability, they are communicating their value to our society,” said Driscoll. “Moves like this move us closer to a more inclusive world.”

Photo: Steller’s jay is a rhapsody in blue

Our photo of the day adds a splash of cerulean to the landscape.

Most of us are pretty accustomed to seeing the flash of assertive azure that the blue jay family brings to nature – but it never ceases to amaze me how exocitc these songbirds would seem if we were not so used to seeing them. Just look at the depth at that beautiful blue in this photo of a Steller’s jay, taken by photographer Rick Derevan. With its vibrant hues and exuberant crest, this beauty might not seem out of place in a jungle or the rainforest; but we’re lucky enough to have them throughout the evergreen forests of western North America. Lucky us!

Photo: Sunset ignites the ice on Lake Ontario

Our photo of the day is a story of fire and ice.

The photographer behind the Flickr account, A Great Capture, didn’t reveal very much about this photo, other than it was taken during sunset at Lake Ontario. But who needs descriptions? A scene like this needs few words other than “ahhhh.”

Photo: Great gray owl blends in with the wintry wilds

Our photo of the day features a majestic giant who practically disappears in the trees.

Although the great gray owl is one of the tallest of owls, they are nonetheless masters of stealth, rarely calling attention to themselves and preferring secluded areas away from people. Hunting in the dusk, dark, and just before dawn, they soar low and quietly over meadows – what a sight to see. The Cornell Lab of Ornithology actually leans toward poetic in describing this majestic bird, writing: “The Great Gray Owl is a dapper owl dressed in a gray suit with a bow tie across its neck and a surprised look on its face. In the stillness of a cold mountain meadow the elusive giant quietly floats on broad wings across meadows and openings in evergreen forests.”
