THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!

"It required the whole bottomless falsehood of the Jews and their Marxist fighting organization to lay the blame for the collapse on that very man who alone, with superhuman energy and will power, tried to prevent the catastrophe he foresaw and save the nation from its time of deepest humiliation and disgrace. By branding Ludendorff as guilty for the loss of the World War, they took the weapon of moral right from the one dangerous accuser who could have risen against the traitors to the fatherland. In this they proceeded on the sound principle that the magnitude of a lie always contains a certain factor of credibility, since the great masses of the people in the very bottom of their hearts tend to be corrupted rather than consciously and purposely evil, and that, therefore, in view of the primitive simplicity of their minds, they more easily fall victim to a big lie than to a little one, since they themselves lie in little things, but would be ashamed of lies that were too big. Such a falsehood will never enter their heads, and they will not be able to believe in the possibility of such monstrous effrontery and infamous misrepresentation in others; yes, even when enlightened on the subject, they will long doubt and waver and continue to accept at least one of these causes as true. Therefore, something of even the most insolent lie will always remain and stick -- a fact which all the great lie-virtuosi and lying-clubs in the world know only too well and also make the most treacherous use of." -- Adolph Hitler

Trump Supporter Punched In The Head At ‘Deploraball’ (VIDEO)

Video has emerged online of a Donald Trump supporter being punched in the head outside the ‘Deploraball’, an event to celebrate Trump’s inauguration in Washington.

James Allsup was wearing a Trump T-shirt and ‘Make America Great Again’ hat while debating an anti-Trump demonstrator outside the event on Thursday. An individual wearing a ski-mask and holding a banner reading ‘antifascist’ is seen in the video grabbing his hat and, in the altercation that follows, Allsup is punched by another individual, also wearing a ski mask.

Yushchenko: 2017, like 1917, will be a fatal year for Ukraine

017 could be the last year of existence of the state of Ukraine - such an opinion was shared with “Russian Spring” by Alexander Yushchenko, a Russian State Duma deputy from the Communist Party of the Russian Federation. “The Ukrainian government’s patrons are now leaving the White House, and this totally destroys the whole picture devised by Biden and other emissaries who defended Ukraine. In connection with this, the struggle for power, or rather the struggle for supremacy within the gang that has set itself up in Kiev, has intensified,” Yushchenko explained. “Therefore,” he continued, “any statements made by Avakov and Turchynov - the war party - are aimed at enlisting the support of Ukrainian nationalists and other radical elements.” At the same time, in Yushchenko’s opinion, the Ukrainian government is becoming far more concerned not with the return of Donbass or Crimea, but keeping Ukraine together as a whole.

Trump begins with call to kill climate action plan

As President Trump delivered his inaugural address Friday, his staff posted a variety of proposals ranging from an "American First Foreign Policy" to killing President Obama's climate action plan — plans largely echoing his campaign website.

"For too long, we’ve been held back by burdensome regulations on our energy industry. President Trump is committed to eliminating harmful and unnecessary policies such as the Climate Action Plan and the Waters of the U.S. rule," reads the top issue brief on the new president's White House website. "New executive actions are expected later Friday as the nation's 45th president begins his administration."

New Ukraine war crimes: civilians in the Ukrainian cross-hairs while Poroshenko begs the whole world to fight Russia

Just a few hours before Trump's inauguration as President of the United States, the Ukrainian army is keeping up its criminal momentum, deliberately shooting civilian areas. Thus, on 18 January, the Ukrainian army again heavily bombed the outskirts of Gorlovka, including the village of Zaitsevo, which is cut in half by the front line, where the fire damaged three houses, including the family of little Rita. Four projectiles damaged the roof, six touched the walls of the house, and two others fell right next door. There is, as you can see on the video below (in Italian at the moment, the French version is in progress), no soldier lives there, only a family with a little girl. A family that French donors have helped several times, with structure and with several new windows.

"He is the president of the United States of America. It must be the biggest mistake by western analysts, by some of our political analysts to consider him being our man," he said.

Protesters, police clash in Washington as Trump assumes presidency

Black-clad activists smashed store windows and blocked traffic in Washington during U.S. President Donald Trump's inauguration on Friday, and fought with police in riot gear who responded with tear gas and stun grenades.

About 500 people, some wearing masks, marched through the city's downtown, using hammers to claw up chunks of pavement to smash the windows of a Bank of America branch and a McDonald's outlet, all symbols of the American capitalist system.

The various protest groups scattered around the city chanted anti-Trump slogans and carried signs with slogans including "Make Racists Afraid Again," a play on the New York businessman-turned-politician's "Make America Great Again" campaign slogan. The incident occurred about 90 minutes before Trump was sworn in at the U.S. Capitol a mile and a half (2.4 km) away.

Hermitage chief: New Palmyra destruction comes across as militants' vengeance

Reports said earlier the Islamic State militants had destroyed the facade of the Roman theater and the Tetrapylon compound. There was no data on how severely the monuments had suffered at the vandals' hands. "We're dealing here with the reprisals they promised long ago," Dr. Piotrovsky said. "It was quite some time ago probably as far back as last May that the IS radio said they would come and stage a new 'concert' in the theater, and now they've done it," he said making a reference to a concert that the Mariinsky Theater symphony orchestra from Russia gave at the site of the Roman theater last May, soon after the militant units had been driven out the ancient city for the first time. He said the whole situation stemmed from a change of military objectives and the beginning of an offensive later than planned initially. "This left Palmyra open to the enemy forces. As for the Roman Theater, the whole of it has undergone restoration works and it can undergo them again".

“RACIST” TRUMP SUPPORTERS RAISE $650,000 TO HAVE BLACK MARCHING BAND PLAY AT INAUGURATION

After rapper Snoop Dogg promised to “roast” any African-Americans who performed at Donald Trump’s inauguration, “racist” Trump supporters raised $650,000 dollars to have a predominantly black marching band play at tomorrow’s event.

Billy Hawkins, president of Talladega College, a historically black campus in Alabama, appeared on Bill O’Reilly’s Fox News show to complain about“mean-spirited” criticism and “nasty emails” received after the college’s famed Marching Tornadoes band tried to raise $75,000 to fund their trip to perform at the inauguration parade.

After a GoFundMe account was set up to support the band, Trump supporters donated a whopping $650,000 dollars, which at one point was coming in at a rate of $1,000 dollars an hour.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I love the smell of irony in the morning; how is it possible that allegedly "racist" Trump supporters developed a "GoFundMe" account to get these kids to DC to perform??!?

This is a really strong college marching band, with a lot of fire and energy:

Violent Scenes From Washington D.C. As America's Snowflakes Riot

Last night we noted that anti-Trump protesters had their first confrontation with police as American's violent, disaffected youth threw eggs at guests and set fires outside of Trump International Hotel as people attempted to make their way to the new administration's "Deploraball." But with the inauguration now over, protesters are showing no signs of slowing down as chaotic scenes of rioters destroying private property are flooding twitter.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Welcome to the new face of the Democratic party; unhinged, churlish, and prone to mayhem and destruction when it does not get its way.

Hey, Donna Brazile, how about it?!?

And I have to ask senior Democrats; is this the way you really want the Democrat Party to be seen, as represented by these kinds of people?!?

Stunning Admission from Obama on Wikileaks. DNC Emails, “Leaked” but “Not Hacked”

Obama refers to “The DNC emails that were leaked”. Note “leaked” and not “hacked”.

In his final press conference, beginning around 8 minutes 30 seconds in, Obama admits that they have no evidence of how WikiLeaks got the DNC material. This undermines the stream of completely evidence-free nonsense that has been emerging from the US intelligence services this last two months, in which a series of suppositions have been strung together to make unfounded assertions that have been repeated again and again in the mainstream media.

Most crucially of all Obama refers to “The DNC emails that were leaked”. Note “leaked” and not “hacked”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You can no longer believe anything the presstitutes have to say,as they continued, consistently, to double down on the DNC's claims that their communications were "hacked", rather than "leaked", when just the converse happened.

Breaking: Syrian Army Launches Large-Scale Campaign Against ISIS-Daesh In Aleppo Province

On January 19, the Syrian Army and the National Defense Forces (NDF), led by Baqir Brigade and backed up by Russian airstrikes, launched an attack against the ISIS terrorist group east of the Khanasser-Aleppo highway, capturing a number of hills and villages.

Government forces took control over the villages of Sirdah, Shuraymah, Rasem Askar, Masudiyah, Atshanah, Umm Miyal, Judaydah, and the nearby hills.

Meanwhile, the army and the NDF, led by the Tiger Forces, liberated Barlahin in the eastern Aleppo countryside, south of the group’s stronghold of al-Bab.

On January 18, the Syrian army retook the villages of Afrin and Rasm al-Abed from ISIS in the same area.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is hopeful for the Syria government; I would like to hope that under President Trump, the US government will stop arming and supporting the alleged "moderate jihadists."

Making sense of Obama's Presidency: In a word, disappointing

While some commentators call Obama's a very good, if not a great, presidency, a fair assessment can be made by looking at his farewell speech in which he strived to justify himself and in so doing, omitted much more than he included. These vainglorious attempts at self-aggrandizement after the event are usually narcissistic exercises aimed at writing one's own epitaph, when a more balanced approach would be to let others do so. As I said eight years ago, when a President takes office, I believe in giving her/him a white leaf of paper to write on and then four or eight years later we can read the story. Saying Barack Obama started well, with his message of respect for the international community, with his promise to dialog, with his call for "Change" (remember?), with his nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize, is wrong because he never actually started. It was all hot air, piss and wind.

Malaysian PM tells Myanmar to 'stop the killing' of Rohingya, as Muslims meet

Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak called on Myanmar on Thursday to stop all discrimination and attacks on Rohingya Muslims, and urged the world's Islamic countries to act to end an unfolding "humanitarian tragedy".

Malaysia has spoken out strongly against mostly Buddhist Myanmar over its treatment of its Rohingya minority, especially since October, when security forces launched a crackdown in the north of Rakhine State on the Bangladesh border, where many Rohingya live.

At least 86 people have been killed and an estimated 66,000 have fled into Bangladesh since nine Myanmar policemen were killed on Oct. 9 in attacks on border posts the Myanmar government blamed on Rohingya supported by foreign militants.

"The killing must stop. The violation of women and girls must stop," Najib, the leader of Muslim-majority Malaysia told a meeting of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) called by Malaysia to discuss the Rohingya.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi: sorry, my dear, but the world cannot possibly unsee these atrocities:

Images: Rohingya getting burned out of their homes

Images: Rohingyas being persecuted by Myanmar military

So Aung San Suu Kyi, I have a message for you: if you don't like the reality that the world is witnessing this persecution of your ethnic Muslim minorities, and Malaysian Minister Razak is calling you out on this,then stop the damned behaviour by your military against them!!

I never thought this lifetime that I would have to say, "Watch out: here come the Buddhists!"

Unfortunately, Myanmar has become a place where this vicious persecution of its Muslim members makes that warning a reality.

Cartoon Villain George Soros Calls His Arch-Enemy President Trump “an imposter”

Aging evil billionaire George Soros sure is mad that his very expensive Hillary Clinton puppet didn’t win the presidency, and that Trump is about to be sworn in despite all of his efforts to prevent it. Soros is like a cartoon villain come to life. He could actually be that creepy character from Pinky and the Brain, plotting to take over the world. He can’t stop insulting President Trump.

Right now, he can’t stop insulting his new arch-enemy, President Trump.

Chelsea Manning, A Heroine for Our Times

The commutation of Chelsea Manning’s sentence by President Barack Obama is bad politics – and, from my vantage point, the only moral act on his part that I can recall. It took balls to do this, and for that I have to give him credit.

One has to also note that the timing here is significant: with his party currently in the midst of a campaign to smear WikiLeaks – and the President-elect — as a Russian tool, Obama’s merciful act undercuts the entire basis of the charge that both Julian Assange and Donald Trump are agents of a foreign power. After all, Manning’s revelations were published by WikiLeaks, this supposedly perfidious agent of Russian intelligence. If the administration really believes that characterization of Assange’s outfit, then doesn’t freeing Chelsea – the Natasha of Boris and Natasha – encourage more acts of “espionage”?

Special report from Brussels says Trump is coming to crush Europe

Donald Trump's presidency may lead to highly unfavorable consequences for the European Union, a report prepared by the The Directorate-General for Internal Policies of the Union said. Brussels fears that the new American leader make take steps towards the improvement of relations with Moscow. Trump may lift sanctions from Russia and support Putin and Assad in Syria. In addition, the Europeans believe Trump may ruin the nuclear deal with Iran and enter into a confrontation with China because of discrepancies in ??trade and regional security. Most importantly, the authors of the report describe Donald Trump as the least qualified and least experienced president in modern American history.

Obama’s Unnecessary Wars and ‘Humanitarian’ Interventionism

The U.S. intervened in Libya in 2011 in the name of the “responsibility to protect.” No one even tried to pretend that U.S. interests were at stake in the Libyan war, and yet Obama committed the U.S. to an avoidable war anyway. The U.S. started ISIS bombing targets in Iraq and then in Syria. ISIS didn’t pose a threat to the U.S. then and still doesn’t, but Obama ordered a bombing campaign against them all the same. The U.S. wasn’t threatened by the Houthis in Yemen, but Obama has backed the Saudi-led war on Yemen in order to “reassure” Riyadh even though it is making the region more unstable and it is making America more enemies than we had before. The direct costs to the U.S. of all these bad decisions have so far been limited, but they are all costs that the U.S. didn’t need to pay for wars that we shouldn’t have been fighting. This is why I have difficulty crediting Obama as a “reluctant” hawk when someone genuinely reluctant to resort to force would not have involved the U.S.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Larson is wrong about there being no interest by the US government in toppling Qaddafi, because that reason was economic, and had nothing to do with protecting the Libyan people whatsoever.

As reported in theecologist.com in March of last year:

Of the 3,000 emails released from Hillary Clinton's private email server in late December 2015, about a third were from her close confidante Sidney Blumenthal, the attorney who defended her husband in the Monica Lewinsky case. One of these emails, dated April 2, 2011, reads in part: "Qaddafi's government holds 143 tons of gold, and a similar amount in silver ... This gold was accumulated prior to the current rebellion and was intended to be used to establish a pan-African currency based on the Libyan golden Dinar. This plan was designed to provide the Francophone African Countries with an alternative to the French franc (CFA)."

The US government couldn't allow that kind of competition to either the US dollar or the Euro; that was why Qaddafi had to be assassinated, to eliminate the economic threat from the gold-backed dinar.

But he is generally correct about "humanitarian intervention" simply being a ploy for the US military to go in, and expropriate resources to which the US government, and its corporate minions, have absolutely no moral right; make sure that those countries are only controlled by US-centric governments, and those resources only sold in US dollars.

When I read Trump’s defenders, such as Daniel Lazare, having to balance their defense with denunciations of Trump, I think the CIA’s propaganda is working.

Watch out for provocations against Russia

Recently, Britain became the voice for a potential war with Russia. First, former NATO commander General Sir Richard Shirreff's book, 2017 War with Russia, came out in May; after that, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson called on the British people to participate in street demonstrations against Russia. Last week, Defense Secretary Michael Fallon stated that war with Russia is not likely in 2017, but Britain would be ready for war against Russia in two years. There is a climbing tension between countries, nothing short of the one the world experienced when Cold War tensions occasionally peaked. British politicians are ignoring the fact that a war between Russia and the Western bloc would drag the whole world into it. Only 100 years ago the world was dragged into a serious war that went on for four years. The ambitions of European politicians thrust the world into an irreversible conflict in three weeks. This conflict was the First World War and led to deaths of 20 million people.

North Korea may be readying missile test, timing unclear: U.S. officials

The United States has seen indications that North Korea may be preparing for a new missile test-launch in the coming days or weeks, U.S. officials said on Thursday, in what could be an early test of President-elect Donald Trump's administration.

South Korean media, citing intelligence agencies, said Pyongyang may be readying a test of a new, upgraded prototype of an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) as early as Friday, the day Trump is inaugurated.

U.S. officials, who spoke to Reuters on condition of anonymity, cautioned however that they did not have such precise information about the range or potential timing of Pyongyang's missile test, should it happen.

One official suggested Pyongyang could be largely seeking to provoke the Trump administration.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to President Trump: please tread carefully here.

One guy you need to get on your speed-dial, and right the heck now, is China's President Xi Jinping.

And I say this because what needs to happen here is the US working with China and South Korea to get North Korea back to the negotiation table, and to substitute the current armistice with a true peace treaty, with trade guarantees, in exchange for North Korea's walking away from their nuclear weapons development.

Any US military response will almost inevitably bring China into war on North Korea's side, and we are so horrifically unprepared for such a war, that you will find it incredible, as you are briefed on US military readiness.

We do not have the troop strength; the weaponry; the manufacturing; or the money to successfully fight a conventional war against Russia and/or China right now.

And while you and your administration wil need to fix this mess, regarding US military readiness, bringing North Korea back to the negotiating table would truly be a victory for your administration, and one that is absolutely doable.

Donald Trump Inauguration Speech Full Text: Read New President’s First Address To The Country

Today’s ceremony however, has very special meaning, because today, we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another or from one party to another, but we are transferring power from Washington, DC. And giving it back to you, the people.

For too long, have reaped the rewards of government while people have borne the cost. Washington flourished, but the people did not share in its wealth. Politicians prospered period, but the jobs left and the factories closed. The establishment protected itself but not the citizens of our country. Their victories have not been your victories. Their triumphs have not been your triumphs and while they celebrated in our nation's capital, there was little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land.

That all changes starting right here and right now, because this moment is your moment.

Inaugurations that Americans will never forget

Inauguration ceremonies of the past would at times be marred with nuisances. One of the inaugurated presidents was drunk as a skunk, another one messed up the words of the oath, and a third one died soon afterwards. German publication Die Welt made a selection of inauguration ceremonies that the Americans will never forget...

Before You Go, Obama: 'Has Any Other Nobel Peace Prize Winner Dropped 100k Bombs?'

Will Tangled Web of Corruption Finally Dethrone ‘King Bibi’ Netanyahu?

Almost every night on television and every day in newspapers since Jan. 2, purported leaks have appeared describing what the media say are details of the investigation.

Prosecutors have confirmed almost none of what has emerged, only that Netanyahu has been questioned and that one of the cases relates to gifts he received from businessmen. Reuters was unable to independently confirm the specifics of the activities under investigation.

The leaks, though, have fueled opposition calls for him to go, and separate opinion polls conducted on behalf of the Jerusalem Post, the Walla news website, the Globes business newspaper and Channel 2 all show his party’s popularity is slipping. Netanyahu has said the media is out to get him and he has no intention of stepping down.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Netanyahu's "leadership" has made Israel a pariah state, relative to his government's treatment of the entire Palestinian issue; it is time for the Israeli people to hold a snap election, and overturn the bitter legacy of his terms in office as Prime Minister.

I wish I could actually see that coming here; unfortunately, I don't, because of the widely held belief in "Eretz Israel" - an Israel running from the Nile to the Euphrates, which doesn't include at all its original Palestinian population.

Cold Start: India to Deploy Massive Tank Army Along Border With Pakistan

The Indian Army is set to deploy over 460 new T-90SM main battle tanks (MBTs) along India’s border with Pakistan, senior Indian defense officials told IHS Jane’s Defense Weekly on January 19.

The new T-90SM MBT (other designations T-90AM or T-90MS) is the latest and most modern version of the T-90 (which in turn is a modernized variant of the T-72 MBT), and has specifically been designed for export by Russia.

According to IHS Jane’s Defense Weekly, the newly ordered MBTs will supplement 850-900 license-built T-90S Bhishma tanks, divided into 18 regiments, and currently deployed in the Indian states of Rajasthan and Punjab. It is unclear how many T-90S and T-90SM in total are currently in service with the Indian Army. (Estimates vary from 800 to 1,200 MBTs in various stages of operational readiness.)

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to the Indian and Pakistani governments; in light of the fact that you are both nuclear-armed countries, with a history of mortal conflict, and wars, please both of you, step back from the brink, and do whatever you can do to ratchet down the tensions here.

A war between you would very probably go nuclear in a heartbeat, and the results of this would be unthinkable, and the consequences, catastrophic... and irreversible.

So, please: you need to open communications at the highest levels possible, and find a way to back away from war.

China To Pour $3 Billion in Iran’s Refining Capacity

China will invest US$3 billion in the upgrade of Iran’s oil refining facilities, Iranian media reported, with the bulk of the investment going into the Abadan refinery.

According to Deputy Oil Minister Abbas Kazemi, China has already “opened the financing” for the refinery’s upgrade. Iran’s oil and gas infrastructure has suffered the results of years of neglect because of insufficient maintenance funds during the sanction years as well as access to new technology and equipment.

Last week China’s statistical bureau reported that the country’s crude oil imports had increased to 64.4 percent of domestic demand and this is expected to continue, with imports rising by a total 17 percent in the period 2015-2020, with domestic output falling by 7 percent in the period, according to the National Development and Reform Commission.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

China and Iran are making deals, to secure what they need; over the past 16 years, the US government has been waging wars of aggression to do the same.

What is wrong with this picture?!?

REPUBLICAN LAWMAKERS IN FIVE STATES PROPOSE BILLS TO CRIMINALIZE PEACEFUL PROTEST

ON SATURDAY, THE Women’s March on Washington will kick off what opponents of the incoming administration hope will be a new era of demonstrations against the Republican agenda. But in some states, nonviolent demonstrating may soon carry increased legal risks — including punishing fines and significant prison terms — for people who participate in protests involving civil disobedience. Over the past few weeks, Republican legislators across the country have quietly introduced a number of proposals to criminalize and discourage peaceful protest.

The proposals, which strengthen or supplement existing laws addressing the blocking or obstructing of traffic, come in response to a string of high-profile highway closures and other actions led by Black Lives Matter activists and opponents of the Dakota Access Pipeline. Republicans reasonably expect an invigorated protest movement during the Trump years.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To those state legislators who believe that such legislation is a "good idea", I would like to politely remind you that the right to peaceful assembly to peacefully protest resides in the DNA of what it means to be a Citizen of the United States of America, and can readily be found in the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

Such legislation, if passed, will be challenged all the way up to the Supreme Court, where it will be well, thoroughly, and mercifully, rubbished.

Obama’s Drone Report Omits Civilians Slain in Iraq, Afghanistan

The Obama Administration has made a habit of dramatically underreporting civilian deaths in its assorted military operations around the world, but took things to a whole new level in what will presumably be their last such document, claiming only one civilian killed all year in US drone strikes “worldwide.”

The report, which Obama requires by executive order, nominally for the sake of transparency, claims a massive decrease from the number of civilians killed the year prior in drone strikes, and managed to achieve this by deliberately excluding the overwhelming majority of the US drone strikes carried out in 2016 from the report’s definition of “worldwide.” Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan are not counted.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Typical: I am completely unsurprised by this.

The Sneering Revolution: Obama’s Attempt To Undermine U.S. Strategic Capability?

The outgoing U.S. Barack Obama Administration and its supporters embarked on a campaign to traduce and challenge the incoming Administration of Pres. Donald J. Trump in the hope that it would find it difficult to govern effectively.

This may be unprecedented in U.S. history, and could, to the degree that it succeeds, have an impact on U.S. strategic capabilities, actions, and alliances going forward.

New CIA Docs Offer Torture Details, Show Internal Debate

Despite intense efforts to keep most of the details of their use of torture secret over recent years, the CIA’s most recent release of documents included several which shed new light on the practice of torture, as well as underscoring an intense internal debate within the agency about the policy.

Among these were cables about the torture of Abu Zubaydah, revealing he was waterboarded 83 different times in a single month, and kept in a small box to small for him to sit up in for hours on end to induce pain. It also revealed there was a formal policy of smacking him repeatedly head-first into walls, with torturers admonished to put a rolled up towel behind his neck to prevent permanent neck injuries.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please remember; this is what your government did in your name, and with your tax dollars; don't you feel proud?!?

And particularly in light of the following:

US report on 'enhanced interrogation' concludes: torture doesn't work

Apparently, no one in Bush's administration even wanted to consider the
incredible successes of World War II's German interrogator, Hans Scharff, who only used kindness and communication as his tools for extracting information.

The Friendliest Interrogator Of World War II Was A German

In fact, this man's humaneness was so revered by the American government, that at the end of the war, he was invited to teach his techniques to the American military.

What he did worked, and worked without harming anyone; what the US government did, or had done, didn't work, and was thoroughly morally repugnant to anyone with a sense of conscience.

People who torture, and love it, are mentally ill vermin who "get off" on the process, because they know that there wil be no repercussions for their actions.

But for that unholy trinity of Bush, Rumsfeld, and Cheney to have signed off on the use of torture, at the highest level of this government...does make me wonder about the state of their minds, and souls (if they have any).

And please consider this; when the US government tortures, or outsources torture, that demonstrates to the rest of the world that it does not honor human rights in the least, nor follows the dictates of Constitution; the Bill of Rights; or the Geneva Conventions.

And also, when the US government tortures, it gives other countries around the world which don't particularly care for the US government carte blanche to torture American civilians and our military.

Please chew on that for awhile, if you have family or friends in our military.

Donald Trump”Pedophiles Deserve The Death Penalty” :Trump His war with DC Elites, Hollywood pedophiles & the Worldwide C.I.A. Black Pedo-Operation

The C.I.A. has always been notorious for being deeply involved in the top 3 illicit revenue-producing operations of the world. Drug trafficking and arms trafficking are both quite HUGE;

However, it is child trafficking that really keeps them in business.

The CIA has so many black budgeted operations to fund that they require massive funding from these criminal activities to continue to run them across the planet.

Child trafficking also provides a special means to control those in positions of perceived power. However, it is those who occupy the highest echelons of the global power structure who are also taken care of by way of this global pedophilia ring.

Zuckerberg Sues Hawaiians to Force Sale of Land for His $100 Million Estate

Facebook owner Mark Zuckerberg is suing hundreds of native Hawaiians in an attempt to force them to sell plots of land that they have owned for centuries located around Zuckerberg’s 700 acre estate.

Zuckerberg’s estate situated in Kauai is worth over $100 million, but a few small plots of land situated on the property belong to Hawaiian citizens who received the land due to legislation called the Kuleana Act which was introduced after Hawaii’s 1848 Great Mahele, a land redistribution decision that enabled private ownership of land by Hawaiian citizens.

What this means is that the Hawaiian citizens that own the land are free to walk through Zuckerberg’s estate. This has led to Zuckerberg choosing to sue the landowners in an attempt to force them to sell their property.

Legacy of Obama: “Goodbye To The Worst President” America Has Ever Had

Obama has been a puppet president and a force of anti-American ideology, preferring to treat people as plebs and dependents, rather than as independent and proud individuals.

Outrage at 'traitorous' CNN for 'inciting violence' with report that OBAMA cabinet member will be president if Trump and Pence are killed at the inauguration

CNN has been accused of inciting violence against Donald Trump after the network said an Obama appointee would take over if the president-elect was killed at his inauguration.

Wednesday's startling report, titled 'Disaster could put Obama appointee in Oval Office,' speculated on what might happen if Trump, Mike Pence and the Congressional leaders were all killed during the ceremony.

During the segment they also used scenes from ABC show 'Designated Survivor', which depicts what would happen if the Capitol building - the venue for Trump's swearing in - was bombed and the Commander-in-chief killed.

In Last Farewell, Russia Slams Obama Whose "Dumb" Actions "Claimed Tens Of Thousands Of Lives"

In a scathing Facebook post, Russia's former president and current Prime Minister, Dmitry Medvedev (who less than five years ago was assured by Obama that "he would have more flexibility") gave his final assessment of US-Russia relations during the Obama administration, and lashed out at the outgoing US president, accusing him of destroying relations "between the United States and Russia, which are at their lowest point in decades" and predicting that "this is its key foreign policy mistake which will be remembered by history."

Medvedev was relentless, saying “US-Russia relations completely fell apart by the end of the second term of the Obama administration,” which has shown itself to be “short-sighted on such an important and complex issue as relations with Russia."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Medvedev is, unfortunately, entirely correct in his assessment here; our Nobel Peace Prize winning President has been the consistent Warmonger-In-Chief from day 1, and the US government's doubling down on Afghanistan; Syria; Iraq; Somalia; Yemen; and Libya has cost thousands of lives.

A Trump aide who was in the room for the call told USA Today that Obama began screaming when Trump told him, “I’m sorry, but I made a promise and I intend to keep it.” The promise was to keep people from former administrations from lobbying or interfering with government for a period of five years after their term is up.

At Activist Training Camp, Protesters Prep To Disrupt Inauguration

Six days before Donald Trump’s inauguration, dozens of people — from college students to gray-haired hippies — gathered in a classroom at American University in Washington D.C. to listen a lawyer offer tips on how to handle getting arrested.

A woman in her late 30s raised her hand. She was worried that, since she’s a teacher, an arrest could get her fired and maybe hurt her chances at landing another job.

“We’ve had teachers get arrested,” the lawyer said. “It’s not the end of the world.” That’s likely reassuring, since for many of those in attendance, the kind of disruption that could end in arrest is the goal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So far, DisruptJ20 appears to be another left-wing fizzle.

Abu Ghraib torture – How many tortured Iraqis would you think have since then joined IS?

“The U.S. Department of Defense must release a cache of photos showing how Army personnel treated detainees at the Abu Ghraib prison and other sites in Iraq and Afghanistan, a federal judge ruled on Wednesday….

The number of photos sought in the lawsuit has not been disclosed but has been estimated at roughly 2,000, according to the Congressional Record and court papers…..

After Hellerstein in March 2015 ordered the release of additional photos, [Defense Secretary] Carter allowed the release of 198 but kept the remainder under wraps, citing a review of a "representative sample" by four high-ranking generals……

The judge said that while risks remained, including that portions of Iraq had been "overrun" by the Islamic State, he could not blindly accept withholding the remaining photos.”

25,000 Hit The Streets In Massive NYC Anti-Trump Rally Hours Before Inauguration Day

Luster is one of 25,000 people, according to event organizers, who flooded the streets surrounding Trump International Hotel and Tower near Central Park during the “We Stand United” rally on the eve of Trump’s inauguration.

Filmmaker Michael Moore and New York Mayor Bill de Blasio spoke at the massive anti-Trump demonstration. Other high-profile figures, including actors Robert De Niro, Alec Baldwin, Mark Ruffalo and Cher, joined throngs of individuals and families of all ages and ethnicities.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Peaceful protesting is written in to the DNA of our Constitution and Bill of Rights, and I completely support the rights of all these people to do this, and God bless all of you for keeping it peaceful.

But I think that until, and unless, the DNC does a massive post-mortem on the critical, and numerous reasons as to why their candidate failed to win the Presidency, all these demonstrations will be for naught.

The DNC machine stole the nomination from Sanders, who could have actually won against Trump; the candidate they selected was pathologically incapable of connecting with ordinary people, and had more baggage than Kim Kardashian on a photo shoot.

And it didn't help matters that she is a warhawk, and perpetual military-industrial complex cheer-leader, who never appeared to consider resolutions to the US's geopolitical problems that didn't involve some kind of pro-active US military response.

And to the artists represented here, like Robert De Niro, Alec Baldwin, Mark Ruffalo and Cher, please understand; I hold you in the highest regard for your artistic integrity.

You all have voices which can be used to advocate for the changes you want to see happen in this country, and I encourage you to continue to do this.
The USA needs to be a country for ALL of its people, and on that we can agree, whole-heartedly.

And finally, 25,000 people are claimed to have attended this protest?!?

REALLY?!?

Take a good, hard look at the group shots, and see how tightly they are cropped.

Were there really 25,000 at this rally, the camera operator would not have been at all shy about shooting the crowd wide.

All sides of the political sound and fury surrounding the recent presidential election have leveled charges and counter-charges against their opponents in this regard. Democrats, embracing a newfound, touchingly naive faith in the CIA and the other agencies of the so-called intelligence community, have claimed that the Russians hacked the Democratic strategists’ electronic files, released the information gained thereby, and hence influenced the election in Trump’s favor, costing Clinton the victory she so amply deserved.

George Soros: Theresa May won't last and Donald Trump is 'would-be dictator'

Theresa May will not remain in power long as Brexit cripples her government, while Donald Trump is a “would-be dictator” who is “going to fail”, the billionaire investor George Soros has told the Davos world economic forum.

On the eve of Trump’s inauguration as president, Soros delivered a scathing assessment, saying the “impostor and con-man” was “gearing up for a trade war” which would have “a very far-reaching effect in Europe and other parts of the world”.

The “would-be-dictator … didn’t expect to win, he was surprised”, Soros told an audience of business leaders and journalists in Davos where the World Economic Forum is being held.

“I personally have confidence that he’s going to fail … because his ideas that guide him are inherently self-contradictory,” added Soros, who was a supporter of Trump’s Democratic rival Hillary Clinton during the 2016 US presidential election campaign.

"HE WANTS TO BE EMPEROR" – HOW MARK ZUCKERBERG IS SCHEMING TO BECOME PRESIDENT

If he does want the job, Zuckerberg definitely has the personality for it. When Facebook went public in 2012, I co-authored a profile of the young C.E.O. During the reporting, I heard from several friends about his penchant for playing world-conquering board and video games. Early childhood pals told me that one of Zuckerberg’s favorite video games as a boy was Civilization, the game in which you have to “build an empire to stand the test of time.” Others have told me that, to this day, Zuckerberg loves to play Risk, a strategy board game where you have to essentially take over the world. Believe it or not, he ended up applying some of these theories while forging and managing the extraordinary growth of Facebook, organizing his product teams in similar ways to his battalions in the board games. (According to someone close to him, these days Zuckerberg loves Game of Thrones and enjoys cooking a meat-laden “Dothraki Feast” while watching Westeros fall in and out of anarchy.)

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Zuckerberg may well have the personality, and a lot of technical savvy; but does he truly have the temperament for leading this country as its President for all of its people?!?!

I sense a petulance in the man's make-up that augurs ill for world peace, and major, significant negotiations desperately needed to ratchet down tensions internationally. Look what he did just yesterday to rt.com, and for no apparent reason:RT gets banned from Facebook until after the inauguration

And does he understand that board games and television shows are just that, and not real predictors of the course of human events on this planet?!? Can he really tell the difference between reality and fantasy?!?

These are critically important questions the DNC has to answer before even considering vetting him to run, whenever that does happen, particularly when it has become so damaged and destroyed by its own "magical thinking" in running the horrifically flawed candidate, Hillary Clinton, last year.

“DEPLORABALL” PROTESTS TURN BLOODY AS TRUMP SUPPORTER ASSAULTED WITH FLAGPOLE

Reports have been rolling in all evening of vicious mobs of violent protesters around Washington DC attacking Donald Trump supporters in town for the inauguration, including people on their way to and from tonight's pre-Inauguration "Deploraball" celebration, held at the National Press Club building. Over 1000 guests were invited to the event organized by Mike @Cernovich and the pro-Trump MAGA3X organization.

As Fox News reports:

Some of the hundreds of protesters sprayed Mace, while others were peaceful as law enforcement officers lined the streets to monitor the chaotic scene. At least one passer-by reported bottles were being thrown as he showed off a gash in his head.

One of the victims was 21 year old Trump supporter and Youtube Journalist James Allsup of Seattle, who was harassed and then punched on camera by members of the "Antifa" protest organization featured in the recent Project Veritas undercover sting.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Perfectly predictable from the Clintonista Brownshirts; they have shown themselves to be people of severely limited intelligence, who can only think in small sound bytes, and demonstrate a thirst for blood and violence, only to be satiated when they can beat up someone who had a difference of opinion as to who they supported to become President in last November's election.

The cold snap gripping most of Europe has spread south to the 9.4million square kilometre African desert.

A blanket of freezing snow has settled on the dunes up to a metre thick in some places.

Astonishing photos that emerged today from the town of Ain Safra, known as the ‘gateway to the desert’, show scenes reminiscent of a mountain range.

It comes just weeks after snow hit the Sahara for the first time in 37 years.

People Are Planning To Boycott Spencer's For This Offensive Trump Shirt

Mary Numair was shopping at the Lloyd Center in Portland, Oregon, recently when she spotted Spencer's selling a very questionable shirt.
Among a collection of Trump shirts was one that read "Grab America By The Pussy," a reference to tape published by the Washington Post last year in which the President-elect is heard saying, "When you’re a star, they let you do it. Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything.”

Weather Channel Founder: Gore’s ‘Inconvenient Sequel’ Another ‘Scientific Monstrosity’

The founder of the Weather Channel has predicted that Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Sequel will be another ‘scientific monstrosity’ on a par with his first global warming docu-drama An Inconvenient Truth.

“Thousands of scientists have debunked the horrid science fiction in his first film, An Inconvenient Truth. Gore keeps making billions and mis-educating millions and the media keeps spreading wild science-fiction claims on a daily basis,” said John Coleman, who founded the Weather Channel in 1980.

The film premiered Thursday at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah, but is not scheduled for public release until next summer, when the weather is warmer and global warming will seem more plausible.

JFK’s Revenge

I’ve enjoyed watching Bernie Sanders grill Trump’s cabinet nominees, quoting the President-Elect’s campaign promises verbatim and demanding to know if those promises will be fulfilled. The man’s a pit bull. He’s there in the ring, slugging it out for truth, justice, and the American Way, just as he has all his life. The empty pantsuit has vanished. I’d like to think that she’s on a terminal vodka bender up there in Chappaqua, cursing the walls as they close in on her. I’d say she has a much better chance of becoming the New York State Vegetable than Mayor of New York City.

As a student of history with a particular interest in the machinations of the Deep State, I’m thrilled at the prospect of a president taking office under direct and open threat from the CIA, especially one as bold and cunning as Donald Trump.

Here’s who’s performing at Trump’s inauguration — and who said no

You don't have to be political to be enamored by President-elect Trump's inauguration.

It's already been quite the spectacle watching performers accept and reject Trump's offer — and those who agreed have been flooded with backlash.

So who exactly will be — and won't be — taking the stage in Washington, D.C., ahead of Trump's swearing-in?

Here's everything you need to know.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What is amazing is that the has-beens who refused based it on the Hillary propaganda about Trump, none of which was true. Trump doesn't hate women, there are no plans to burn LGBT people at the stake, and "illegal" isn't a race!

By the end of the next four years, the snowflakes will hopefully understand the degree to which they were lied to and used by Hillary!

Here are the federal agencies Trump plans to cut as President

Even before officially taking up residence at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., the President-elect has begun cleaning house in various government agencies, according to a report Thursday.

Trump transition staffers say they’ve earmarked ways to reduce federal spending by $10.5 trillion over 10 years — and cutting jobs is a big part of the plan, The Hill reported.

Under the Trump plan, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting would be privatized.

The National Endowment for the Humanities will be cut entirely, The Hill said.

Funding to the Departments of Commerce and Energy would be drastically reduced and many of the programs under their jurisdiction eliminated or moved to another agency, the website reported.

U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power "Sounds The Alarm About The Surge In Antisemitism" In Final 'Exit Memo'

In her swan song, UN Ambassador Samantha Power mentions Israel 17 times, Palestine only once, Russia 14 times and Syria 27 times. She mentions terror 17 times, extreme 7 times, and bank 3 times. All of these exit memos, along with Obama's alleged accolades, is a great deal to wade through, and while we are all certainly looking forward to better things starting today, I encourage writers, researchers and bloggers to search through all this stuff for items of interest. If for no other reason, than to mock and thoroughly discredit the state. Here are all of Samantha Power's excerpts about Israel and anti-Semitism.
