September 24, 2017, 10:45:16 pm Psalm 51:17 says: The specific rule pertaining to the national anthem is found on pages A62-63 of the league rulebook. It states: “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem. “During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”

Aluminum is a known neurotoxin that destroys cellular metabolism and function. Hundreds of studies link to the ravaging effects of aluminum. The other proteins and formaldehyde serve to activate the immune system and open up the blood-brain barrier. This is NOT a good thing."

This is just crazy

Will NATO invoke collective action over Russia hacking?

NATO’s Deputy Supreme Allied Commander Europe, General Sir Adrian Bradshaw, has reportedly suggested that NATO may consider Russian interference in upcoming European elections as an attack triggering collective defense measures.

Such a move could put NATO and its member states at odd

ATO’s Deputy Supreme Allied Commander Europe, General Sir Adrian Bradshaw, has reportedly suggested that NATO may consider Russian interference in upcoming European elections as an attack triggering collective defense measures.

Such a move could put NATO and its member states at odds with the United States, which carefully avoided calling Russian interference in the U.S. election even a violation of international law.

It would also leave the United States with a difficult choice of potentially changing its view of the legality of election interference or contradicting the legal views of its NATO allies.

NATO’s founding treaty states in Article 5 that NATO members “agree that an armed attack against one or more of them in Europe or North America shall be considered an attack against them all” and that “if such an armed attack occurs, each of them, in exercise of the right of individual or collective self-defence,” will assist the victim state.

In a 2014 summit declaration, NATO governments made clear that cyberattacks could trigger collective self-defense under Article 5 and explained that a decision to invoke NATO’s collective defense obligations would occur “on a case-by-case basis.”

According to The Independent, Bradshaw suggested that election interference may be such a case, explaining that “allegations of interference in American and European elections and an international disinformation campaign could cause the definition of an ‘attack’ to be widened” for purposes of Article 5.

Such a move would go far beyond how the United States has treated Russian election interference. The United States has avoided even calling Russia’s actions a violation of international law, much less an armed attack.

In his December statement announcing retaliatory measures against Russia, President Barack Obama said only that the measures were “a necessary and appropriate response to efforts to harm U.S. interests in violation of established international norms of behavior,” not international law.

Just days after the November election, then-State Department Legal Adviser Brian Egan suggested the kind of interference that the United States would consider to violate the international law prohibition on intervention. Egan explained that “a cyberoperation by a state that interferes with another country’s ability to hold an election or that manipulates another country’s election results would be a clear violation of the rule of nonintervention.”

“Armed attack” is a high threshold under international law, and as Just Security’s Ryan Goodman has explained, Russia’s interference in the U.S. election did not reach that level. Maybe a future cyberattack on election infrastructure could. But Bradshaw may have meant not that future election interference was likely to constitute an armed attack but rather that NATO states should respond collectively to hostile actions below the armed attack threshold.

Differences between the United States and NATO allies about the legality of election interference could undermine their ability to mount such a unified response. The issue of whether the Democratic National Committee (DNC) hack and subsequent leaking of information violated the principle of nonintervention splits international law experts, and it may well divide states too.

If France, Germany and the Netherlands suffer interference akin to the DNC hack in their upcoming elections, they may not be as reluctant as the United States about declaring a violation of international law.
