A Bad Copyright Bill Moves Forward With No Serious Understanding of Its Dangers

By Katharine Trendacosta

The Senate Judiciary Committee voted on the Copyright Alternative in Small-Claims Enforcement Act, aka the CASE Act. This was without any hearings for experts to explain the huge flaws in the bill as it’s currently written. And flaws there are.

During the vote in the Senate Judiciary Committee, it was once again stressed that the CASE Act—which would turn the Copyright Office into a copyright traffic court—created a “voluntary” system. “Voluntary” does not accurately describe the regime of the CASE Act...

Passive Facebook Use Correlated with Depressive Symptoms

Great holiday, fantastic party, adorable children, incredible food: everyone shows their life in the best light on social networks. Those who take a look around on such sites can find that their self-esteem takes a hit as it seems as though everyone is better than them.

Users who use social networks passively, i.e. do not post themselves, and tend to compare themselves with others are in danger of developing depressive symptoms. This is what a team of psychologists at Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB) led by Dr. Phillip Ozimek discovered...

Parents explode as Republicans refuse to defend kids from library drag queens

It became clear why the Maryland event organizers wanted to keep this Drag Queen's identity hidden. What Tracy discovered was truly frightening.

Tracy found that one of the Drag Queens, "Stormy Vain" (real name: Todd Musick), is involved with numerous lurid and pornographic sexual businesses and activities. He runs "Stormy's Angels of Entertainment" and "Eroticasy." Among his business offerings: male escorts/companions, nude maid services, sex toys, hiring out strippers for parties and one-on-one sessions, nude maintenance service, nude personal trainer, nude hair styling, X-rated candies, and "much more." On his website (now offline), he offered "male companions" under a tab that warned "Nudity!! Must be over 18 to view."

Jeffrey Epstein’s New Mexico Ranch Linked To Sex Trafficking

At the center of Jeffrey Epstein’s secluded New Mexico ranch sits a sprawling residence the financier built decades ago — complete with plans for a 4,000-square-foot (372-square-meter) courtyard, a living room roughly the size of the average American home and a nearby private airplane runway.

Known as the Zorro Ranch, the high-desert property is now tied to an investigation that the state attorney general’s office says it has opened into Epstein with plans to forward findings to federal authorities in New York.

The Tale of rBGH, Milk, Monsanto and the Organic Backlash

Organic milk is now as readily available as conventional milk as more consumers and companies are recognizing its benefits and demand. A recent estimate by the USDA, says organic products are now available in nearly 20,000 natural food stores and nearly 3 of 4 conventional grocery stores.

If you and/or your children drink organic milk, you’ve already heard about rBGH (recombinant bovine growth hormone), which may have prompted you to switch from conventional milk to organic milk in the first place.

Man shouting ‘You die’ kills 33 at Japan anime studio

A man screaming “You die!” burst into an animation studio in Kyoto, doused it with a flammable liquid and set it on fire Thursday, killing 33 people in an attack that shocked the country and brought an outpouring of grief from anime fans.

Thirty-six others were injured, some of them critically, in a blaze that sent people scrambling up the stairs toward the roof in a desperate — and futile — attempt to escape what proved to be Japan’s deadliest fire in nearly two decades. Others emerged bleeding, blackened and barefoot.

The suspect, identified only a 41-year-old man who did not work for the studio, was injured and taken to a hospital. Police gave no details on the motive, but a witness told Japanese TV that the attacker angrily complained that something of his had been stolen, possibly by the company.

US strategic bomber & aircraft carrier drill ‘strike operations’ on Iran’s doorstep (PHOTOS)

Multiple US Air Force aircraft, including a B-52 strategic bomber, have joined the USS Abraham Lincoln in the Arabian Sea for a ‘simulated strike operations’ exercise to prepare to take on Iran “when called upon.”

The drills witnessed F/A-18 Super Hornets, MH-60 Sea Hawk helicopters, and E-2D Growlers from the USS Abraham Lincoln mastering joint maneuvers to improve their “operational tactics in several warfare areas,” US Naval Forces Central Command said on Sunday. Among other “joint training evolutions,” the US Air Force participated in “strike coordination and reconnaissance exercises.”

One particular concept, entanglement, was so out there that Albert Einstein called it “spooky action at a distance” and for many years refused to accept it as true...

REPOST: WikiLeaks founder addresses death of DNC staffer Seth Rich in Fox News interview

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has spoken out about the death of a Democratic National Committee staffer killed nearby his Washington D.C. home.

In the past, Assange hinted Seth Rich may have been a WikiLeaks informant, and in an exclusive interview with Fox News' Megyn Kelly, he revealed even more.

But once again, Assange skirted the question of whether Rich was an informant in the interview. He would only say he was concerned about any potential sources who would try to help WikiLeaks in its endeavors.

Kelly also questioned Assange about WikiLeaks' involvement with the Russians in American politics and his view of both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, including what information he may have on Trump and if it will ever be released.

But the exchange with Kelly about the D.C. murder of the 27-year-old Democratic National Committee employee revealed some interesting information.

US Preparing to Deploy Additional Troops to Saudi Arabia Amid Spat With Iran – Report

Tensions between Washington and Tehran have escalated in the last few months as Iran withdraws from voluntary obligations under the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) nuclear deal and the US builds up its military presence in the Middle East under the pretext of “the Iranian threat.”

The US president’s administration is reportedly prepared to send its military personnel to Saudi Arabia, according to CNN, citing two unnamed defence officials.

According to the report, five hundred troops are slated to be deployed to the Prince Sultan Air Base, located to the east of the country’s capital of Riyadh.

The US troops will reportedly become reinforcements to the US military and support personnel already on the site with beginning preparations for a Patriot surface-to-air missile system, a runway and other airfield improvements.

Mitiga Airport in Tripoli Closed Due to Being Targeted by Air Strikes

The airport, the only one still functioning in Tripoli, has already endured airstrikes in the past that forced it to close to all air traffic, but was recently restored at the beginning of July.

Tripoli's Mitiga International Airport has closed for incoming and outgoing air traffic after being hit by air strikes, the airport reported on its Facebook page. No further details have been given so far.

Libya's capital Tripoli, which is controlled by the Government of National Accord (GNA), has been under attack by the forces of Libyan National Army (LNA) commanded by Khalifa Haftar since April. Haftar announced that the LNA would clear the city of GNA forces, which he described as "terrorists".

In Major Threat To Dollar's Reserve Status, Russia Offers To Join European SWIFT-Bypass

Three weeks after a meeting between the countries who singed the Iran nuclear deal, also known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), which was ditched by US, French, British and German officials said the trade mechanism which was proposed last summer - designed to circumvent both SWIFT as well as US sanctions banning trade with Iran - called Instex, is now operational.

And while we await for the White House to threaten Europe with even greater tariffs unless it ends this special purpose vehicle - it already did once back in May when it warned that anyone associated with the SPV could be barred from the U.S. financial system if it goes into effect - a response from the US is now assured, because in the biggest attack on the dollar as a reserve currency to date, on Thursday, Russia signaled its willingness to join the controversial payments channel, and has called on Brussels to expand the new mechanism to cover oil exports, the FT reported.

Cambodia will send back 1,600 tons of trash to US and Canada, govt says country is ‘not a dustbin’

Cambodia will return 83 shipping containers loaded with plastic waste to the United States and Canada, the country’s Environment Ministry has announced. The move comes as Southeast Asia tires of accepting the west’s refuse.
The shipping containers were discovered on Tuesday in Sihanoukville, once a sleepy fishing village and now an overdeveloped, rubbish-strewn port city on the country’s south coast. Though the ministry does not yet know which companies were responsible for bringing in the containers, a spokesman said that 70 were American and 13 came from Canada.

Any companies found responsible will be prosecuted, he said.

PAUL OF PERSIA: Rand Paul Emerges as President Trump’s New Peacekeeping Force in Iran

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) recently proposed to President Donald Trump that he should take a larger role in negotiating with Iran during a golf outing, a notion that Trump apparently supports, in order to prevent another endless war from starting in the Middle East.

Paul wants to sit down with Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif in order to ease tensions with the Islamic Republic, which has been confirmed by four U.S. officials according to Politico. This news has enraged the neocon war hawks in the Trump administration, who want a wedge to remain between the two nations preventing any talks.

China to Ban Doing Business with Firms Selling Weapons to Taiwan

China considers Taiwan its sovereign territory, treating it as a breakaway province to be eventually reunited with the mainland.

Its ruling authorities call incursions by US warships in the Taiwan Strait provocative – the 110 mile-wide waterway separating Taiwan from the mainland.

They consider US arms sales to Taiwan a hostile act.

China’s Defense Minister Wei Fenghe earlier was unequivocal, saying the nation’s military will “firmly defend (China’s) national sovereignty, security and developmental interest.”

Beijing expressed outrage over the Trump regime’s approval to sell about $2.2 billion worth weapons to Taiwan, including Abrams tanks, Hercules armored vehicles, heavy equipment transporters, and Stinger anti-aircraft missiles.

Pentagon Confirms Removing Turkey From F-35 Fighter Jet Program

Pentagon officials confirmed on Wednesday that Turkey has been removed from the F-35 fighter jet program, despite President Trump complaining about how “unfair” it was to America to have to do so just the day before.

US law established a mechanism for punishing other nations who buy weapons from Russia, and threatened Turkey time and against for buying the S-400. Turkey began taking delivery of the S-400, and that set the US move to ban them from accessing the F-35 jets.

Trump didn’t like this, because the F-35 isn’t exactly flying off the shelves and Turkey was a potential customer. Undersecretary of Defense Ellen Lord argued that all the nations partnered on the F-35 are “aligned in this decision to suspend Turkey.”

Afghan Army Commander Killed in Insider Attack in Central Afghanistan

Details have emerged on an insider attack on Wednesday in Afghanistan, when an Afghan soldier shot and killed the commander of the Afghan Army’s 3rd division, Col. Mateen Mujtaba, in the Ghazni Province.

Afghan officials reported this was an insider attack, saying the soldier who killed the colonel was a Taliban insider, and was killed himself when other troops returned fire during his shooting. They claimed only the colonel was killed.

The Taliban confirmed that the attacker was theirs, but also claimed that US soldiers were killed in the insider attack. US officials have not reported any such casualties, nor did Afghan officials mention US troops being present, only calling them “near” the attack.

The Taliban wiped out dozens of Afghanistan's most elite commandos

An Afghan regional governor said 25 members of the country's elite commando units have been killed in fighting with the Taliban.

The incident, which occurred on July 15 in the northern province of Badghis, is the latest in which specially trained Afghan military units have suffered unusually high death tolls.

In comments to RFE/RL, Badghis Governor Abdul Ghaffar Malakzai blamed a lack of coordination as the main reason for the deaths of the commandos. He did not elaborate.

He also said that more than 20 Taliban militants were killed in the clashes.

Qari Yousuf Ahmadi, a Taliban spokesman, said that at least 39 commandos were killed. He said that the militants also captured 16 soldiers.

Badghis, located along the border with Turkmenistan, has been the scene of frequent Taliban attacks.

US to Divert $40 Million in Humanitarian Aid to Venezuela Opposition

The Trump Administration has informed Congress that they intend to divert $40 million in humanitarian aid away from that and giving it to Venezuela’s opposition instead.

USAID, nominally a humanitarian aid body but in practice tends to be used to subsidize covert actions, informed Congress that the $40 million will be used to pay for salaries and other expenses for the Guaido “government” budget.

USAID argues that the funding of Guaido is in “the US national interest,” while Maduro criticized the vote as more proof that Guaido is just a US-funded puppet.

US Democrats remove ‘occupation’ from two-state solution resolution

A US House Democrat’s resolution in support of the two-state solution has been amended to remove references to the Israeli occupation and settlement activity, reports the Times of Israel. The amended bill also claims attempts by Palestinians to achieve statehood outside of negotiations with Israel as is unacceptable.

In April, California Democrat Alan Lowenthal introduced House Resolution 326, a symbolic resolution that reaffirmed the US’ commitment to resolving the Palestinian-Israeli conflict through a two-state solution.

The original text highlighted “the special relationship between the US and Israel” and how the US “remains unwavering in its commitment to help Israel address the myriad challenges it faces.” It also mentioned the long history of US presidents seeking a two-state solution and how “delays to a political solution… pose a threat to the ability to maintain a Jewish and democratic state of Israel.”

Turkey criticises US deal of the Century, supports Palestinian rights

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu yesterday criticised the US deal of the century and emphasised the importance of supporting Palestinian rights, Turkish news agencies reported.

During his speech at the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) executive committee meeting held in Saudi Arabia, Cavusoglu said sustainable peace cannot be achieved by disregarding the Palestinians’ dignity and ignoring “the just and legitimate aspirations of the Palestinian people.”

Referring to the US economic workshop held in Bahrain last month, he said: “Economic projects and plans cannot replace the need for dignity, justice and freedom. And no project can succeed without a just peace.”

He added: “Expansion of illegal settlements continues throughout the occupied Palestinian territory, including in and around Al-Quds, as well as in the West Bank. This is a deliberate attempt to undermine the two-state vision.”

British MPs condemn killing of Palestinian medics by Israel forces in Gaza

A number of British Members of Parliament have slammed the killing of Palestinian medics at the hands of Israeli forces in the occupied Gaza Strip.

On 15 July, an Early Day Motion (EDM) entitled “Health Workers in Gaza” was tabled in Parliament.

The EDM begins with a condemnation of “the killing of healthcare workers in Gaza and in particular the recent killing of Gaza paramedic Mohammed Al-Jedaili”, who, the motion adds, was “the fifth Palestinian health worker to be killed by Israeli forces in just over a year”.

The motion then “notes that according to the World Health Organisation more than 750 health workers in Gaza were also injured between 30 March 2018 and 31 May 2019.”

The context for the timeframe is the Great March of Return, and the efforts taken by Israeli forces to violently suppress its associated demonstrations.

On Friday, nearly 30 cans of wasp spray were sold in Boone County alone.

"From what we're being told, if you use it, you know, you might use it once or twice and be fine, but the third time when your body hits that allergic reaction, it can kill you," Sgt. Charles Sutphin said.

Five Years on from Malaysian Airlines MH17 Destruction: A Clear Lack of Evidence that Moscow Was Behind It

Five years ago, on 17 July 2014, Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 (MH17) was shot down approximately 30 miles from the Ukrainian-Russian border, while fighting raged below between Western-supported groups and “Moscow-backed separatists”.

During late afternoon local time 298 people, including crew members, lost their lives when the scheduled passenger aircraft was blown out of the sky. In the following time, some of the dead were found scattered in the surrounding sunflower fields.

Many reports later emanated from Western media, without necessary supporting evidence, claiming that “Russian-sponsored militants” were responsible for firing a Buk surface-to-air missile at the plane. Buk missile systems are in fact under possession of both Moscow and Kiev.

Almost 200 of those killed were of Dutch nationality – with the aircraft itself, a 64 metre long Boeing 777-200ER, having intended to reach Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia’s capital, after departing Amsterdam about three hours before.

Money Laundering Fines Worth Billions Help Bankers Avoid Prosecution and Unpleasant Labels

By Lubomir Tassev

The recent seizure of a cargo ship owned by JP Morgan, a vessel loaded with 20 tons of cocaine according to latest accounts, highlighted the risks of banks’ involvement in illicit activities, inadvertent or otherwise. And although U.S. authorities released the MSC Gayane after the owner, JP Morgan’s asset management arm, and the operator, Mediterranean Shipping Company, paid a $50M in cash and surety bond, the stain remains and this is not the only stain. Money laundering for drug cartels and moving funds for terrorists, arms dealers and dictatorial regimes are among the sins banks have accumulated through the years. However, court settlements and billions of dollars in fines often help major financial institutions avoid prosecution, conviction, and labels like ‘Drugbanks.’...

Dozens arrested as Hawaiians protest $1.4bn telescope on sacred mountain

Dozens of people have been arrested on Hawaii’s Big Island this week after hundreds of protesters stood, lay and even chained themselves to structures in an effort to stop the construction of a billion-dollar space observatory at the summit of Hawaii’s tallest mountain.

The protests are the culmination of longstanding controversy over the site of the proposed observatory atop Mauna Kea, the highest point in the Hawaiian islands.

Astronomers say the site will offer an unparalleled view into deep space. But many Native Hawaiians consider the mountain sacred, and fear the construction of a telescope as tall as an 18-story building would desecrate it.

Demonocracy: The Great Human Scourge!

One cannot speak too highly of Christophe Buffin de Chosal’s The End of Democracy. In a fast paced, readable, yet scholarly fashion, Professor Buffin de Chosal* demolishes the ideological justification in which modern democracy rests while he describes the disastrous effects that democratic rule has had on Western societies. He explodes the myth of Democracy as a protector of individual liberty, a prerequisite for economic progress, and a promoter of the higher arts. Once Democracy is seen in this light, a far more accurate interpretation of modern history can be undertaken. The book is a very suitable companion to Hans-Hermann Hoppe’s iconoclastic take down of democracy in Democracy: The God That Failed, released at the beginning of this century. Buffin de Chosal has spoken of a follow up which will be eagerly awaited for.

In the face of sustained attacks by US authorities on the right to engage in boycotts against Israel, Congress member Ilhan Omar introduced a resolution on Tuesday that seeks to protect that right.

She also explicitly offered her support for BDS, the nonviolent boycott, divestment and sanctions campaign that aims to pressure Israel to respect Palestinian rights the way similar global grassroots pressure helped end apartheid in South Africa.

Palestinian boycott campaigners welcomed Omar’s resolution.

“It affirms the right of all activists and people of conscience to advocate for human rights through boycotts against systems of oppression,” Hind Awwad, spokesperson for the Palestinian BDS National Committee said.

The friends I lost to Israel’s bombs and bullets

Two days later – 15 December 2001 – Israeli forces invaded Jabaliya refugee camp in northern Gaza.

Yousif’s cousin approached me around noon that day and immediately told me that Yousif had been killed. An Israeli soldier had shot him in the head. Yousif was two weeks shy of his 11th birthday.

It was the first time that a friend of mine had died. I had no idea how to express myself, especially given that our last conversation had been an argument.

So I just stayed silent.

Yousif was killed on the eve of Eid al-Fitr. When I went to his funeral, his mother Aisha wept as she showed us the clothes Yousif had planned to wear at Eid.

North Korea suggests it might lift weapons test moratorium

North Korea on Tuesday suggested it might call off its 20-month suspension of nuclear and missile tests because of summertime U.S.-South Korean military drills that the North calls preparation for an eventual invasion.

The statement by the North’s Foreign Ministry comes during a general deadlock in nuclear talks, but after an extraordinary meeting of the U.S. and North Korean leaders at the Korean border that raised hopes that negotiations would soon resume.

The comments ramp up pressure on the United States ahead of any new talks.

"The government application for continued remand is hereby granted,” Berman said just minutes after the pretrial proceeding began.

Attorney claims Jeffrey Epstein had improper sexual contact with one woman while he was serving time

At least one young woman has accused Jeffrey Epstein of "improper sexual contact" while he was serving a 13-month jail sentence for state charges in 2008 and 2009, according to a lawyer who represents dozens of Epstein accusers.

Bradley Edwards, the lawyer, also alleged during a press conference Tuesday in New York that Epstein had inappropriate contact with some women as recently as 2011.

Edwards was responding to claims made Monday by Epstein's lawyers that Epstein had maintained a "spotless 14-year record," with "meticulous obedience" to the law, since he pleaded guilty to state prostitution-related charges in 2008 and was released from jail.

Last week, federal prosecutors in New York charged Epstein with sex trafficking of minors and sex trafficking conspiracy. He has pleaded not guilty.

New York battered with heavy rain from Tropical Storm Barry, leaving one person dead, streets flooded and water gushing through subway stations

At least one person has died after remnants of Tropical Storm Barry battered New York with torrential rain, lightning and gusty winds leaving streets flooded and water gushing through subway stations on Wednesday.

A Connecticut man died after a tree was struck by lightning and a large limb fell onto his car roof at around 5 p.m. as he was driving on Bridgeport's Park Avenue.

Police found Jarrod Marotto, 21, of Southington, unconscious behind the wheel and he died on the way to hospital, WABC-TV reported.

An electrical crew had to shut down the power to wires that had also toppled on the vehicle before rescuers could begin to work to free Marotto.

'There are plenty of showers and thunderstorms around the area this evening,' the National Weather Service warned in a 5pm tweet. 'These storms could produce strong gusty winds and heavy downpours. Remember, a Severe Thunderstorm Watch remains in effect until 10pm, and a Flash Flood Watch until 5am.'

A doomed attempt to bring articles of impeachment against President Trump failed miserably Wednesday night as expected, but the roll call put scores of Democrats on record in support of at least keeping the effort alive -- revealing that bloc has grown substantially in recent months.

Even as Democratic leaders have pushed back against impeachment proceedings at this stage, more and more prominent members -- including the freshman firebrands who were the targets of Trump's Twitter ire over the weekend -- have supported the drive. Wednesday’s resolution was brought by Rep. Al Green, D-Texas, who repeatedly has sought to impeach Trump.

"The president has committed an impeachable offense," Green said on the House floor Wednesday. "Yesterday, we condemned him for that. Today is our opportunity to punish him."

Journalist Goes to Ilhan Omar’s Homeland to Prove How Great It Is – Gets Killed by Terrorists

Before President Donald Trump suggested on Twitter Sunday that Rep. Ilhan Omar "go back" and "help fix" her native Somalia, Hodan Nalayeh was already in the country doing just that.

According to a Washington Post report published Saturday, the Somali-Canadian journalist had returned to the country of her birth to tell "uplifting" stories of how people lived there. However, her homecoming ended in tragedy.

By the time Trump unleashed his nativistic tirade against Omar, Nalayeh had been dead for two days.

She was killed Friday when al-Shabab militants stormed the Asasey Hotel in Kismayo, killing at least 26 people. It took around 14 hours for Somali security forces to regain control of the hotel, where another journalist and at least one American were among the dead.

IN THE DOCK Twelve Israeli teens who ‘gang-raped Brit woman, 19, as they laughed and filmed attack at Ayia Napa hotel’ hauled into Cyprus court

The woman told police that the large group held her down while taking videos on their mobile phones and laughing, according to Ynet News

She is reported to have meet a member of the group three days prior to the attack and engaged in sexual relations on multiple occasions with the teen.

According to court documents the victim had 'scratches on her lower limbs' as a result of the trauma and had agreed to go into the hotel room at around 3.30am with one of the males.

She then claims that once inside 11 other teens entered the room and raped her.

The Times of Israel reports some or all of those being quizzed by cops are 16 or 17 years old and three of those arrested have since admitted to having sex with the girl.

Though the men claim it took place with 'with love and consent'.

Three of the suspects were bought to the Famagusta Court, in Paralimni, today with the other nine arriving an hour later.

Liberal Media Melts Down When Trump Brings Up Allegations That Omar Married Her Own Brother

President Trump, responding to a question from a reporter, suggested he had heard stories that Rep. Ilhan Omar married her own brother in an attempt to skirt immigration laws.

Iran seizes oil tanker for “smuggling” — but no one knows which ship?

With tensions already high around the Strait of Hormuz, the Iranians have upped the ante … or at least so they say.

Their state media reported that the IRGC had seized a tanker on a mission to smuggle oil through the Persian Gulf. The seizure reportedly took place in Iranian waters, and the ship was “foreign,” according to the Iranians:

The statement says the tanker was carrying 1 million liters of smuggled oil that it had picked up from small Iranian ships and was sailing towards foreign ships with it. The ship was seized south of Lark Island in the Strait of Hormuz, the IRGC statement quoted by Fars says.

“During the patrolling mission in the Persian Gulf aiming at the discovery and confrontation with organized smuggling on Sunday, 14th of July2019, the IRGC’s first region navy patrol made the seizure of a foreign vessel in surprise after it made sure the vessel was carrying one million liters smuggled fuel.

LOOKS LIKE EPSTEIN WAS AN INTELLIGENCE ASSET

The news media is going to do everything possible to deflect your attention from this basic fact:

Epstein’s Austrian passport with a home address in Saudi Arabia is a MAJOR smoking gun.

Why is it a smoking gun?

This was a real working passport issued by a foreign government.

Who is able to get passports issued at will – legally or illegally?

The passport was used. It had multiple visas. It was not a decoy to protect him from terrorists. And there is no legal way to get one for that purpose anyway.

He used it to travel from Europe to and from Saudi Arabia.

The passport says he had a home in Saudi Arabia. Did he?

Maybe the lazy news media will check the address out.

If he had a home in Saudi Arabia, what was it for?

What is Communism?

Ultimately, mass shootings occur to promote an incremental ban on guns, the main remaining obstacle to the imposition of Communism in the US today.

The Rothschilds are Cabalist Jews who worship Lucifer who represents their own demented megalomania. They are imposing their occult tyranny by virtue of their worldwide monopoly over the medium of exchange. They produce credit & currency from nothing in the form of a debt to themselves, something our government could do itself, interest-and-debt-free. Organized Jewry and Freemasonry are accomplices in this scam. Alas, our "money" is just coupons, virtual chips in their digital casino. They can manipulate or void these chips any time they want.

Confirmed: Ilhan Omar DID marry her brother to cheat immigration system as White House petition demands investigation into her “loyalty” to the U.S.

The various controversies surrounding Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) just won’t go away, thanks to some old-fashioned intrepid reporting from some gumshoe journalists.

You may recall that around the time Omar was elected in November to her first congressional term, rumors/reports swirled that she actually married her brother as a way to "skirt immigration laws," according to the Star Tribune newspaper serving Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minn.

In June the paper reported that new "investigative documents" that were released by a state agency reignited "lingering questions" about Omar’s "marital history." The paper noted:

Omar has denied the allegations in the past, dismissing them as "baseless rumors" first raised in an online Somali politics forum and championed by conservative bloggers during her 2016 campaign for the Minnesota House. But she said little then or since about Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, the former husband who swept into her life in 2009 before a 2011 separation.

Avoid airline food: The FDA has issued a warning about unsafe food conditions

The quality of airline food is being called into question. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a warning letter in March 2018 to a major airline catering company, warning about unsafe and insanitary conditions and kitchens "contaminated with filth." The FDA found a Kentucky food preparation facility to be so insanitary, they claimed that the food is adulterated and "injurious to health."

The company in question is Gate Gourmet, Inc. The food catering company provides airline food for a slew of airlines including British Airways, Virgin Atlantic, LAN Airlines, Air Algérie, Air Canada, American Airlines, United Airlines, Qantas, Aerolíneas Argentinas, Avianca, Iberia Airlines, Air China, Air France, Delta Air Lines, Emirates, Thai Airways, Swiss International Air Lines, TAM Airlines, Air Indus, Alitalia, and easyJet.

The Corps has lost more than 25,000 Marines to misconduct over the past decade

The Marine Corps has lost more than 25,000 Marines to misconduct over the past decade, according to Commandant Gen. David Berger.

In his 2019 Commandant's Planning Guidance, Berger said that the Corps "continued loss of 8,000 Marines per year to non-EAS attrition is unacceptable," using an acronym to describe the end of active service in an enlistment.

A total of 25,336 Marines were booted from the Corps between 2009 and 2019; 11,765 were for drug and alcohol offenses, while 13,571 were over unspecified misconduct.

"This must change," Berger wrote, noting that the cost to replace that many Marines was in excess of $1 billion.

Walmart To Lose $1 Billion In E Commerce Operation

Walmart (NYSE: WMT) has been pouring billions into its domestic e-commerce operations for the past three years, since acquiring Jet.com and installing Marc Lore as the head of U.S. e-commerce. It’s bought several digitally native brands, including Bonobos and Modcloth, and it’s successfully attracted new brands to Walmart.com and created its own brands in-house.

But its online grocery business, a business in place before the Jet.com acquisition, has been the star of the show the last few years. Online grocery helped propel Walmart’s U.S. e-commerce business to 40% revenue growth last year, and a similar level of growth will help Walmart reach between $21 billion and $22 billion in online sales this year.

While grocery is a standout winner, Walmart’s efforts to capture share of more traditional online purchases have come at a huge cost. The company is set to lose more than $1 billion this year from its U.S. e-commerce operations, according to a report from Recode.

Iran Is Not Our Enemy

Despite what all the media are yammering at you, despite all the fear mongering about Iran's "nuclear threat" (Iran has been fully verified by the IAEA and ALL the U.S. intelligence community agree and are on record that Iran is not pursuing nuclear weapons), despite talk that Iran is intolerant, despite the daily barrage of bad press and unpleasant innuendo, Iran is a great country, friendly, cultured, fun and spiritually-minded!

The "Powers That Were" are dead set on taking us to war against Iran, but "They lied about Vietnam... Iraq...Afghanistan..." and "Iran Is NOT Our Enemy ! " :-)
