North Korea warns of 'merciless strike' ahead of US-South Korea drills

North Korea warned Sunday that the upcoming US-South Korea military exercises are "reckless behavior driving the situation into the uncontrollable phase of a nuclear war."

Pyongyang also declared that its army can target the United States anytime, and neither Guam, Hawaii nor the US mainland can "dodge the merciless strike."
The messages in Rodong Sinmun, the official government newspaper, come a day before the US starts the Ulchi Freedom Guardian military exercises with South Korea.

Tensions between the US and North Korea have grown in recent weeks.
Just last week, Pyongyang said it had finalized a plan to fire four missiles toward the US territory of Guam. State media reported that leader Kim Jong Un would assess the US' next move before giving launch orders.
Kim would "watch a little more the foolish and stupid conduct of the Yankees," a North Korean statement said last week

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK; the reality here is that North Korea hates these South Korean/US military drills because what they are practising for is an invasion of North Korea.

But were I a betting person, I would not bet against Kim Jung Un firing off a missile or two (or being made to appear as having done this, courtesy of a US false flag), before the end of these exercises on 31 August.

Stephen Bannon Returns to Breitbart

Stephen Bannon is returning to Breitbart after jumping on a grenade earlier this week with his "controversial" interview where he "contradicted" Trump by saying there's nothing the US can do to stop North Korea.

Odds are he had already been fired and did that just to try and distract from the media's organized takedown campaign ruthlessly and shamelessly exploiting and lying about the events in Charlottesville.

Weekly Update: New Comey FBI Lawsuit

Former FBI Director James Comey sits in a firestorm of his own making. By his own admission, he created and then leaked memos to ensure that a special counsel would be appointed to investigate President Trump. It looks as if Comey broke government rules and laws as part of his machinations. Special Counsel Mueller is unlikely to investigate his friend Comey, and so it is up to your Judicial Watch to do the work of the Justice Department, FBI, Congress, and the media.

For that reason, we have filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Department of Justice for all non-disclosure agreements pertaining to the handling, storage, protection, dissemination, and/or return of classified information that were signed by or on behalf of former FBI Director James Comey (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice (No. 1:17-cv-01624)).

Charlottesville Car Driver Was Fleeing Antifa Attack

As the black charger ran down the road plowing into another car, most antifa protestors jumped out of the way. But once the car stopped, a group of them attacked his rear window with bats smashing it out while others smashed in his side window.

So the driver panicked and he revved his car into reverse.

It’s clear this was attempted murder by the MOB and he was well within his rights to try by any means to get out of there, but gunning it in reverse was not the brightest thing to do.

The point is, it’s not a cut and dry case as the press makes it out to be. They should not have been smashing in the windows of his car. That makes everything much more complicated.

Video Emerges Of US Allowing ISIS Fighters To Escape Safely In Syria

Video footage obtained by Al-Masdar appears to show convoys of ISIS fighters fleeing the Syrian city of Raqqa untouched by the U.S. military, which is currently bombing that exact location. As Al-Masdar notes, despite having Kurdish and American drones hovering around the city of Raqqa, U.S. bombs are nowhere to be seen as hundreds of fighters pass safely. The release of this footage comes on the heels of accusations from both Russia and Iran that the U.S. is colluding with ISIS to allow the group’s safe passage into areas controlled by the Syrian government.

The eclipse begins its cross-country trajectory over the Pacific Coast of Oregon late Monday morning and will reach South Carolina's Atlantic shore some 90 minutes later

Officials in Oregon and other states are warning drivers the eclipse could cause the worst traffic jams

Experts advise people to wear proper protective eyewear or risk lasting blind spots during the eclipse

Monday's event will be the first total solar eclipse spanning the entire continental United States since 1918

It is also the first total solar eclipse visible anywhere in the Lower 48 states in 38 years

Refusing to Learn Lessons from Libya

Still Spinning

A full year after the commencement of NATO’s campaign against Gaddafi, former NATO Ambassador Ivo Daalder and NATO Supreme Allied Commander James Stravidis took to the pages of that reliable bellwether of establishment opinion, Foreign Affairs, to declare that “NATO’s operation in Libya has rightly been hailed as a model intervention.”

Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi shortly before he was killed on Oct. 20, 2011, in Sirte, Libya.
According to Daalder and Stravidis, “the alliance responded rapidly to a deteriorating situation that threatened hundreds of thousands of civilians rebelling against an oppressive regime.”

In 2016, a Clinton campaign press release justifying the ill-starred intervention, claimed “Qadhafi and his regime made perfectly clear what their plans were for dealing with those who stood up against his reign, using disgusting language in urging his backers to cleanse the country of these rebels. This was a humanitarian crisis.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Amazing, how people (very much including Secretary Clinton) continue to lie, and to subvert the real narrative as to why the US and NATO went into Libya:

Hillary Emails Reveal True Motive for Libya Intervention

And you have to wonder; when these emails are out in the open, indicating very clearly why the US and NATO went into Libya, why Clinton continues to lie about the real reason we went into Libya?!?

There is one thing at which sociopaths excel; that is lying, and making those lies sound perfectly believable. This is precisely what Clinton did here.

The Libyan military intervention went horrifically wrong; and those in the bowels of power in DC have to face up to that reality, or we will have Libya 2.0 happening somewhere else.

Media's Anti-Aging Agenda without the Benefit of Scientific Evidence, Fact or Common Sense

Allure Magazine announces it's intention to ban the term "anti-aging," and wipe it from the internet. Another veiled political attack against the successes of anti-aging sciences, but longevity medicine cannot be stopped.

First of all let us applaud the 29 celebrities in the Allure Magazine online article on August 15, 2017 (https://www.allure.com/gallery/celebrities-against-anti-aging) for what appears to be living and eating healthy, adhering to Anti-aging Medical Principles (preventative medicine), getting the proper amount of exercise, possibly buying all natural, Non-GMO foods, and being blessed with great genetics.
Unfortunately, being blessed with great genetics alone does not always help someone stay beautiful as they circle the sun more than 40 times. You have to believe that, all though age is inevitable, it is not the only factor that causes your body to deteriorate and grow older.

ANTIFA MANUAL FOUND On Evergreen College Campus: Shut Down Their Rallies…Force The Media To Show Our Side As The Righteous One

This copy of the Antifa Manual, that is used by the George Soros funded, violent, anti-American, anti free-speech radical group, was allegedly found on the Evergreen College campus. The content of this manual is disturbing and should be read by every American, so we understand what we are up against. It helps to explain why these groups call our President and his supporters “Hitler” or “racists” or “homophobes.” It’s not that Trump or his supporters are any of these things, it’s just part of a campaign to humiliate and shut down any opposition to radicals whose ultimate goal is a one world order and the destruction of capitalism in America.

Nervous Japanese hold drill in case N. Korea fires missiles over them

Residents of a town on the Japanese coast held evacuation drills on Saturday to prepare for any launch of North Korean missiles towards the U.S. Pacific territory of Guam, that would fly over their homes.

As sirens blared from speakers in the town of Kotoura, children playing soccer outside ran to take shelter in a school, along with their parents and their team coach.

"I've been concerned every day that something might fall or a missile could fall in an unexpected place due to North Korea's missile capabilities," said the coach, Akira Hamakawa, 38.

North Korea's rapid progress in developing nuclear weapons and missiles has fueled a surge in tension across the region.

U.S. President Donald Trump warned North Korea this month it would face "fire and fury" if it threatened the United States.

Donald Trump could soon pardon Wikileaks founder Julian Assange after doing this

Republican congressman Dana Rohrabacher revealed he discussed discuss “what might be necessary to get him out” of asylum, when he met with Mr Assange earlier this week.

And speculation was reignited yesterday when Trump Alert, the Twitter account which tracks the President’s Twitter activity, reported that the President had begun following Mr Assange.

However, the President may have quickly unfollowed the Wikileaks founder, with the account no longer listed as on his followers for both his presidential and personal accounts.

Mr Assange has been holed up inside the embassy for almost exactly five years and has been granted political asylum by Ecuador.

ARE PROFIT AND HEALTHCARE INCOMPATIBLE?

In the good old days of the 1950s and 1960s, U.S. healthcare was more localized, and the central state (federal government) wasn’t the Sugar Daddy for the cartels. Hospitals were community hospitals (what a quaint idea in today’s hyper-cartelized system) managed by physicians and administrators who saw their role as serving the community rather than arranging for $20 million annual salaries and millions of dollars in stock options.

This is why the cartels love Medicare For All proposals: the federal government–protector and funder of the cartels–will give the cartels a blank check not just for the 120 million people currently drawing benefits from Medicare/Medicaid but for all 325 million Americans.

Fast facts on Medicare and Medicaid (Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services)

Medicare Beneficiaries: 57.7 million
Medicaid Beneficiaries: 72.3 million
estimated dual Beneficiaries (drawing benefits from both programs): 10 million

Total Beneficiaries: 120 million

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We not only have a military industrial complex in the country; we also have a medical industrial complex, which thrives when patients stay ill, both from mandated medications, and lousy eating habits.

You have to wonder at the "push" toward mandated vaccines, and why the medical industrial complex has been so keen (with purchased, legislative "assistance", no doubt) to force you to have vaccines. There is a medical reason, and its name is nagalese.

This is what this chemical, found in most US vaccines right now, does:

REVEALED: Cancer industry profits 'locked in' by nagalase molecule injected into humans via vaccines... spurs tumor growth... explains aggressive vaccine push

GCMAF, Nagalese, and cancer

Nagalese in vaccines

Molecule in most vaccines spurs cancer growth, is the reason for vaccine push

I hope I have your attention by now; the medical industrial complex is not about wellness, but about profits, and by any means necessary.

PALESTINIAN CHILDREN CAUGHT IN ISRAEL’S ‘CAT AND MOUSE’ GAME

It is commonly said that the all worst nightmares move silently in the dark and wear military uniforms and escaping with light steps along the asphalt street. This night in the village not even the engine sound of the armoured vehicle distracts. The vehicle remains there, without moving, in the night, and next to it there is a street light with a faint light. The man is watching, and with each movement he seems to be counting steps, three forward, one to the side, and again three paces backwards, without taking his eyes off the houses, with his rifle under his arm, and the barrel kept at eye level, ready to interrupt the silence. It is totally silent, and the silence seems almost begging to be interrupted by a roar, a scream, or a lament, while from behind a curtain a child, one of the numerous children, records the scene with his cell phone.

Moment knifeman 'wearing a fake suicide vest' flees after stabbing eight people in Russian knife rampage - as it is claimed he is the son of a known 'extremist supporter' of radical Islam

Siberian knifeman, was named locally as 19-year-old Artur Gadzhiev
He is believed to be from Dagestan, a strongly Muslim region of Russia
He was shot dead by armed police in a busy street in Surgut, central Russia
At least two people fighting for their lives while another five were hospitalised.

A teenage knifeman wearing a fake suicide belt wounded at least eight people in a frenzied attack in a Russia this morning.

The attacker, named locally as 19-year-old Artur Gadzhiev, was shot dead by police in a busy main street in Surgut, central Russia, at about 11.20am local time.

He is believed to be from Dagestan, a strongly Muslim region of Russia in the Caucasus.

Gadzhiev's father Lametulakh was reported to be registered with Russian police as an 'extremist' and 'supporter' of radical Islam.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When the interpretation of a religion teaches that the assassination of innocent people who have done no wrong to you is not only perfectly acceptable, but also your moral responsibility, there is something severely, horrifically wrong with that interpretation of that religion.

And to all the Imams who are touring Europe right now, condemning the violence of radical Islamists who have killed/hurt people, and offering compassion to the families and friends of the killed and wounded, your presence is desperately needed in Surgut.

'Leftist' Meltdowns Continue: Therapists Report Huge Spike In Patients Suffering From "President Trump Stress Disorder"

There’s only one thing that has been constant throughout the duration of Trump’s presidency, and that is the reaction of the people who oppose him.

Time after time the Left has responded to Trump’s actions and words with unfettered fear, paranoia, and highly publicized meltdowns. His mere presence in the White House seems to leave them hyperventilating, sobbing, and lashing out at anyone dares to support him, or even refuses to denounce him.

Believe it or not, the emotional vulnerability of these people hasn’t improved since he took office earlier this year. The New York Daily News recently interviewed several doctors and therapists around the country, and found that they’ve seen a huge spike in patients who have been freaking out about President Trump. Apparently, these medical professionals are referring to their anxiety as “President Trump Stress Disorder.”

IT staffers may have compromised sensitive data to foreign intelligence

Alarm bells went off in April 2016 when computer security officials in the House reported “irregularities” in computer equipment purchasing. An internal investigation revealed the theft of hundreds of thousands of dollars in government property, and evidence pointed to five IT staffers and the Democratic Congress members’ offices that employed them.

World War 3: US sends military to North Korea BORDER as tensions with Pyongyang escalateTHE United States and South Korea are preparing to roll out their armies across the North Korean border as the threat of World War 3 intensifies.

The daring move from Washington and Seoul follows "Armageddon trade" between Pyongyang and the Pentagon over Kim Jong-un’s threat to blast US territory Guam with nuclear missiles, which looked as though it was reaching boiling point last week.

But when Donald Trump warned the despot the US is “locked and loaded”, ready to respond to any strike, tensions simmered.

Yet when troops land on the peninsula, just miles form Jong-un’s territory, explosive consequences are feared.

A staggering 80,000 troops will be involved in the military drills along with hundreds of thousands of first responders and civilians.

The Ulchi-Freedom Guardian war games are computerised command and control exercises which take place every other year.

So-called defensive exercises between the two nations are the world’s largest - and will simulate warfare with North Korea.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to wonder at DC's and Seoul's collective " wisdom" (read: warmongering insanity) to continue with these wargames, when Kim Jung Un has very strenuously objected to these exercises, as they drill preparations for the potential invasion of North Korea.

But were I a betting woman, I would bet on the following; Kim Jung Un will respond to these exercises, and it won't be by holding the hands of his missile engineers and collectively singing the Korean equivalent of "Kumbiyah".

Unfortunately, the potential for war on the Korean peninsula is still very real.

Furor erupts over killing of teenager as Philippines drugs war escalates

The Philippines police came under pressure on Friday to explain the killing of a high-school student after the 17-year-old became one of at least 80 people shot dead this week in an escalation of President Rodrigo Duterte's ruthless war on drugs.

Television channels aired CCTV footage that showed Kian Loyd Delos Santos being carried by two men to the place where his body was later found, raising doubt about an official report that said he was shot because he fired at police officers first.

Witnesses told the ABS-CBN channel that the teenager did not have a firearm and police officers at the scene handed him a gun, asked him to fire the weapon and run.

(For a graphic on Anti-drugs operations in the Philippines, click tmsnrt.rs/2fO2d3k)

National police chief Ronald dela Rosa said that if the Grade 11 student did not pose a threat, the officers who shot him on Thursday night would be held accountable.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Duterte, a word, please: there is an old, wise phrase that people who do not understand history...are doomed to repeat it.

This is precisely what you are doing in your painfully counterproductive "war on drugs." People who well have been completely innocent of drug-dealing, or drug-taking are being slaughters, indiscriminately, and there is only so much of that with which the Filipino people will put up.

There are some countries, like Portugal, which have decriminalised small amounts of drugs for personal use, but pushed counseling and support environments, and do you know what has happened, sir?!?

Let me show you in the following series of articles, how this has worked:

Portugal: what happened after they decriminalised drugs, from weed to heroin

In Portugal,
drug use is treated as a medical issue, not a crime

What Happened when Portugal decriminalized all drugs

14 years after Portugal decriminalised all drugs: where's what's happening

There is a way to make this happen successfully; but what you are doing right now is only going to exacerbate the problem; drive the costs of illegal drugs up, and insure the growing financial wealth of the cartels.

I hope someone around you reads this article and emails it to you; there is a way to make this happen successfully, without anyone getting shot who was potentially, completely innocent.

UN Aid Chief Slams Saudis for Blocking Yemen Aid

UN aid chief Stephen O’Brien issued statements Friday slamming the Saudi-led coalition attacking Yemen, along with the Saudi-backed government in south Yemen, saying they are “unilaterally denying and excessively delaying” entry of humanitarian aid into northern Yemen.

This has been a recurring problem throughout the war, as the Saudi coalition’s first act was to impose a naval blockade. Since then, they’ve tried to funnel aid shipments overwhelmingly to Aden, the de facto capital of their allies, while attacking and blockading Hodeidah, the last northern port.

O’Brien insisted that it was “simply wrong” for the coalition to insist that cargo go through Aden instead of Hodeidah, urging the countries to endorse a UN mechanism for allowing shipments into Hodeidah.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is going to happen when pigs fly.

Prince Salman's attitude toward Yemeni non-combatants seems to include all the following elements; kill combatants and non-combatants alike; starve the Yemeni people into death and submission by malnutrition, and then, with water infrastructure destroyed through Saudi bombings, let's have cholera (possibly weaponised) kill the rest!

And I have a question; where did the 66 million Prince Salmon donated to the UN for treating the cholera epidemic actually go?!?

Prince Salmon donates 66 million to the UN to treat cholera in Yemen, June 2017

Did Prince Salmon cynically give them the aid, understanding that by the time they got around to organising and distributing it with boots on the ground in Yemen, it would be too little too late, if they were able to get it into Yemen at all?!?

Well, here's the answer, and what we have heard about the "cholera vaccination program" for Yemen to date: take a look at this headline from the New York Slimes, dated 11 July, 2017:

U.N. Suspending Plan for Cholera Vaccination in Yemen

The article went on to say:

"The United Nations said on Tuesday that it was suspending plans for a cholera vaccination campaign in Yemen — reversing a decision made a month ago — because the disease’s rampant spread and the ravages of war there would make such an effort ineffective.

Jamie McGoldrick, the United Nations aid coordinator in Yemen, said plans for preventive vaccination were being “set aside.” He attributed the change to obstacles in delivering vaccines in the middle of a conflict that has crippled the country’s health system and hampered access to some areas threatened by the contagious disease."

So the bottom line here is, Prince Salmon makes the donation to the UN, understanding that the UN wouldn't be able to deliver cholera relief because of the instability the Saudi forces have created in the country, and he looks good, because it's now the UN's fault that this aid could not be delivered, not his fault because of the atrocities his troops have committed in Yemen.

It's a classic magic trick, and it has a name: that is "misdirection".

But Saudi Prince Salman, a word please; this is absolutely not working. Thinking Americans, and people around the world, know the "game" you are playing in this genocide against the Yemeni people, and want it to stop.

Iran Says Nikki Haley's Statement On Sanctions Is "Devoid Of Any Shred Of Truth"

The US last month approved a set of sanctions against Tehran, aimed at its missile program and support for terrorism, a move that officials and members of Congress have said is separate from the nuclear deal. But on Tuesday, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani warned that the sanctions violate the spirit of the deal.

Rouhani's speech has been taken as a warning that Iran will withdraw unilaterally from the deal, known by the acronym JPCOA, should US sanctions move forward. US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley swiftly fired off a statement condemning Rouhani's words.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Iranian Ambassador Gholamali Khoshroo is completely correct in his assessment; these additional sanctions, which have utterly nothing to do with the P5+1 deal, were engineered by the Congress of the Unhinged, Surveilled States of Amerika, to cause Iran to walk away from the P5 +1 deal, as the prelude to a war against it.

Israel would love to see regime change in Tehran, and alleges that Iran is its "existential threat" in the region, but with the costs in blood and money of that regime change only be paid in American blood and money.

There is, however, one little problem with this scenario; and that is the 14,000 lb gorilla in the living room, draped snoozing over the Bosendorfer Grand: that is Russia, and its formidable military capabilities.

Russian officials and military personnel have publicly gone on record, saying that if Iran is attacked, they will defend it militarily.

And so, I am hoping that those in the bowels of power in DC, at every level, are really evaluating what a war against Iran would look like, with Russia firmly on its side.

And I would like to hope that they realise that at this time in the US military's existence, it doesn't have the troop strength; the weaponry; the money; or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome against Russia in a conflict in Iran.

North Korea Sees Planned US-South Korea Wargames as ‘Catastrophe’

Various annually scheduled US wargames in and around the Korean Peninsula almost always provoke an increase in tension for their duration. The upcoming Ulchi-Freedom Guardian (UFG) exercise is particularly ill-timed on that front, coming amid dangerously high tensions already.

The exercise, which begins Monday, will last 10 days, and involve 20,500 foreign troops in a simulated defense of South Korea from an invasion by North Korea. The exercise is the largest annual computerized command-and-control operation in the world. North Korea has termed the decision to hold the exercise a “catastrophe.”

17,500 US soldiers will participate, along with troops from Australia, New Zealand, multiple NATO member nations, and Colombia. US officials say the exercise is designed to “increase readiness,” though again this comes after weeks of claiming that US troops were already ready for war with North Korea at a moment’s notice.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump, a word, please: yes, we all know that this exercise was planned way in advance.

That being said, sir; this is precisely the kind of activity against which North Korea's Kim Jung Un has complained so stridently, because what happens in these exercises, are the execution of the kinds of plans and drills necessary for invading his country.

The timing bites; and I am making a prediction that Kim Jung Un will respond with some kind of military display of force, perhaps the launch of another missile or missiles, before the end of these exercises on 31 August.

Trump Continues to Resist Pressure for Afghan EscalationPence, McMaster Lead Call for Escalation

Friday’s Camp David talks on Afghanistan appear to have ended without a final decision by President Trump on troop levels, as he continues to resist pressure from top cabinet officials to sign off on a massive escalation of the 16-year-old conflict with thousands of fresh troops.

Trump had initially delegated the decision to Defense Secretary James Mattis, but Mattis found a cap limiting his maximum deployment too restrictive. Now, Vice President Pence and National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster are also taking up the cause of large-scale escalation, pushing Trump to accept the recommendations of the commanders.

Pence and McMaster were at the Camp David meeting, but Blackwater founder Erik Prince, who has been pushing a “privatize the war” initiative, was blocked, apparently at the behest of McMaster. Trump aide Steve Bannon, another skeptic of military escalation, was sacked outright.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would politely like to point out that doing the same thing, in precisely the same way, yet expecting a different outcome, is one of the classic definitions of insanity.

A large scale escalation of anything less than hundreds of thousands of US troops will not create a "win" in Afghanistan; and without the reintroduction of the draft (which may well happen on President Trump's watch), we simply do not have the troop strength to accommodate a huge escalation of troops here.

It is highly unfortunate that the only "President Whisperers" we have in the White House now are Kelly, Mattis, and Mc Master, because all will see war as the only possibility for moving forward, and they are completely, totally, wrong on this issue.

And please note Senator Graham's terrifying statement in the last paragraph:

"The ever-hawkish Sen. Lindsey Graham (R – SC) appears also to be pushing the narrative that it’s impossible for the war not to continue to be escalated, arguing that the US would have “another 9/11” if they stopped occupying Afghanistan a mere generation after the last terrorist attack".

Air Force Chief: Israel Has Attacked Syrian Arms Convoys Nearly 100 Times in 5 Years: Brags That Many of Israel's Attacks Go 'Under the Radar'

Providing the most specific details yet on Israel’s ongoing series of military strikes inside war-torn Syria, Air Force Chief Maj. Gen. Amir Eshel revealed today that Israel has carried out nearly 100 distinct military actions over the last five years specifically related to what they believed were Hezbollah-bound arms convoys.

This comes less than a month after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was caught on an open microphone admitting to “dozens” of strikes in Syria, though obviously this is far greater, because many Israel strikes on Syria clearly were not Hezbollah related.

Indeed, recently reported Israeli strikes in Syria have almost always been the result of stray artillery shells landing in empty territory inside the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, and Israel responding by attacking Syrian military bases in the area.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israeli Air Force Chief Maj. Gen. Amir Eshel's testosterone-fueled hubris cannot hide the reality that these have been illegal attacks against a sovereign foreign government, which Israel was hoping to get regime-changed through their, and the US military's, efforts; they did not work.

So now, with the distinct possibility that an independent Kurdistan may well be carved out of areas of Syria, one has to wonder; just what is Israel prepared to do militarily now, to attempt to force out the existing, and duly elected, government out in Damascus?!?

U.S. Has 3.5 Million More Registered Voters Than Live Adults - A Red Flag For Electoral Fraud

According to a new study of U.S. Census data, America has more registered voters than actual live voters. It's a troubling fact that puts our nation's future in peril. The data come from Judicial Watch's Election Integrity Project. The group looked at data from 2011 to 2015 produced by the U.S. Census Bureau's American Community Survey, along with data from the federal Election Assistance Commission. As reported by the National Review's Deroy Murdock, who did some numbers-crunching of his own, "some 3.5 million more people are registered to vote in the U.S. than are alive among America's adult citizens. Such staggering inaccuracy is an engraved invitation to voter fraud."

U.S. forces to stay in Syria for decades, say militia allies

Washington's main Syrian ally in the fight against Islamic State says the U.S. military will remain in northern Syria long after the jihadists are defeated, predicting enduring ties with the Kurdish-dominated region.

The U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), an alliance of militias dominated by the Kurdish YPG, believes the United States has a "strategic interest" in staying on, SDF spokesman Talal Silo told Reuters.

"They have a strategy policy for decades to come. There will be military, economic and political agreements in the long term between the leadership of the northern areas (of Syria) ... and the U.S. administration," Silo said.

The U.S.-led coalition against Islamic State has deployed forces at several locations in northern Syria, including an airbase near the town of Kobani. It has supported the SDF with air strikes, artillery, and special forces on the ground.

Merkel, called 'traitor', defends refugee stance in rowdy east Germany

German Chancellor Angela Merkel was greeted with shouts of "traitor" by a rowdy group of right-wing protesters in east Germany on Thursday as she defended her decision to allow hundreds of thousands of refugees into the country.

Roughly five weeks before an election in which she is expected to win a record-tying fourth term, Merkel veered from her stump speech, acknowledging "difficult times" in 2015 when a flood of asylum seekers, many from the Middle East, entered Germany.

It was her first campaign stop in eastern Germany, parts of which have been fertile ground for anti-immigration politics.

"Many people were worried. They said to themselves: 'What about us? Are we still important or are only the refugees important'?" she told a crowd of several thousand in the central market square in Annaberg-Buchholz, a town in the state of Saxony near the Czech border.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Notice that this question remains unanswered in the rest of her speech.

Immigration ultimately means votes; that is what Merkel's party is counting on, in the long term, regardless of the harm and displacement it is causing German nationals now.

Gainesville prepares for white nationalist rally

Officials and police in Gainesville said they are preparing for a white nationalist protest next month, even though the University of Florida denied event space for a planned gathering there.

The city commission voted on Thursday to give Mayor Lauren Poe authority to sign an emergency declaration should the Sept. 12 event take place.

University of Florida President W. Kent Fuchs on Wednesday said the school had denied a request for event space from white nationalist Richard Spencer's group, National Policy Institute. He cited concerns of violence days after the events in Charlottesville, Virginia, that left one dead.

The group is planning to file a legal challenge.

Gainesville Police Chief Tony Jones said the department is also making plans should the event go on.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I love the smell of irony and hypocrisy in the morning.

Do you know where Richard Spencer gets his money?!?

The following article is very telling:

White Nationalist Richard Spencer Gets His Money From Louisiana Cotton Fields—and the US Government, to the tune of $2 million dollars.

Inherited massive wealth, in one of the most income-unequal areas of the country; must be nice.

But the consistent, national emergence of these alt-right/Antifa clashes is no accident; I truly suspect that much of this is being orchestrated by the American Deep State, hoping to get national riots going, as a way forcing President Trump to declare a state of emergency, and suspend the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

Why?!? Because they are tired of public protests, and scrutiny, of those existing and coming wars through which they want to control the world's resources. When the draft is re-introduced, because our troop strength is very low, compared to that of Russia and China, which both conscript, they don't want any public outcry over that either.

They want to insure that US/Western-centric governments control the countries with those resources; determine who and who not may buy them; and have them sold only in American dollars.

It is just that simple.

Spencer is simply a small wheel in a much larger cog, with a huge agenda, which includes conquering Russia and China, potentially with a nuclear strike. And before you say, "that's got to be absolute rubbish!", please read the following article by Paul Craig Roberts:

Washington plans to nuke Russia and China

This man is no "chicken little"; he is a very sober-sided writer with incredible street cred in allowing himself to go precisely where the facts lead him, no matter how uncomfortable the conclusion.

I am watching the Faux "news" feed this morning, focusing on today's Boston protests, and praying that there is no violence here; but it is painfully obvious to me that these kids, on both sides of the protests, have not a clue as to how they are really being "played" to fulfill the American Deep State's ultimate goal.

Dems risk culture war fight in Charlottesville response

President Donald Trump’s widely criticized response to white supremacist violence in Virginia has left Democrats in a quandary: how to seize the moral high ground without getting sucked into a politically perilous culture war.

Democrats have denounced Trump for blaming “both sides” for deadly protests in Charlottesville, Virginia, and, more recently, for defending Confederate monuments.

But the party faces a complex task: While addressing race and history in ways that reflect the party’s values, Democrats also need to focus on issues like jobs and the economy that resonate with a wider range of voters, including white independents, ahead of the 2018 midterm election.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When you erase history, you erase a sense of who people are, and where you actually come from; dictatorships love to do that, and there is a quote going around this last week from George Orwell, in his book "1984":

“The past was erased, the erasure was forgotten, the lie became the truth.”

Slavery was a part of the fabric of this country for quite some time; this is reality. Slavery was abolished in 1865 by the 13th Amendment to the Constitution. Does prejudice against minorities still exist in 21st century America?!? The honest answer is, yes; it is both institutional and educational, and translates as a belief that minorities are pathologically incapable of dealing with life without government intervention, and interference.

I am quite certain that our African-American; Asian; Middle Eastern, Hispanic, and other minorities, would beg to differ on that issue.

But in the 20th century, we had a brilliant civil rights movement, led by one of my great heroes, Dr. Martin Luther King; he was a great opponent of the Vietnam war, in which African Americans were disproportionately getting killed and maimed for life. He was ultimately assassinated by elements of the American government for his community-unifying, anti-war views.

Did You Know? US Gov’t Found Guilty In Conspiracy To Assassinate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The Democrats would love nothing better than turning this country into a thoroughly history-fluid, independent-information-squelched, society, completely detached from where it has come, and incapable of the critical thinking necessary when it comes to resolving societal challenges in the 21st century.

The DNC has become the Big Brother party of no real answers, coupled with the edict "give us your money, your belief, and your obedience, and we will take care of you."

That "taking care of" bit, under President Obama, meant more failed wars in the Middle East, costing Americans billions, if not trillions of dollars; "Common Core" education, which is simply indoctrination coupled with participation trophies; hideously expensive medical care, with thoroughly lousy outcomes; and extraordinarily bad judgement on war-fighting hardware, which has given the US military the ongoing debacle which is the F-35.

I know who I am; I am a 68 year old Christian pacifist activist, who constantly exhorts her government to resolve its geopolitical differences through hard won, moral negotiations, rather than war. I am a composer, who loves to be in the process of creating music.

Therefore, I will not allow anyone outside of me to define who I am, or attempt to develop a false narrative about who I am, and where I come from; and I humbly ask our readers to stay authentic, and know your own personal history, and not allow anyone to define who you are, outside of yourself.

SCIENTISTS 3D-PRINT ‘HIGH-RESOLUTION’ LIVING TISSUE

Oxford University scientists have found a ground-breaking way of 3D-printing living tissue that could pave the way for regenerative medicine.

The new way to 3D-print stem cells to recreate complex living tissues was devised by Oxford scientists in collaboration with Bristol’s School of Cellular and Molecular Medicine.

The discovery could revolutionize regenerative medicine as it allows for the reproduction of complex tissue that could replace or repair damaged or severed areas of the body.

“The versatility and robust nature of our approach provides a new set of tools for bottom-up tissue engineering at a low cost,” researchers claim in their paper, published in Scientific Reports.

One of the main hurdles of 3D-printing organic matter has been that cells move within the printed structures, and the soft scaffoldings supporting them tend to collapse on themselves.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This development could, potentially, revolutionize medicine as we know it!!

What the Announced NSA / Cyber Command Split Means

Cyberwar and cyber intelligence are diverging, as are Cyber Command and the NSA. Here’s what that means for the man who leads both entities, the future of signals intelligence collection, and cyberwarfare.

The move to elevate Cyber Command to a full Unified Combatant Command and split it off from the National Security Agency or NSA shows that cyber intelligence collection and information war are rapidly diverging fields. The future leadership of both entities is now in question, but the Pentagon has set out a conditions-based approach to the breakup. That represents a partial victory for the man who directs both Cyber Command and the NSA.

A Domestic Destabilization Is Underway: “The Left Is Fueling And Funding Tensions In Order To Exacerbate Them And Cause A Revolution”

Under the guise of “political correctness,” cities (such as Baltimore, MD) are removing their Confederate monuments one-by-one and under cover of darkness. Here, as reported by CBS News:

“The Robert E. Lee and Thomas J. “Stonewall” Jackson monument at Wyman Park Dell was removed with a crowd watching. The Robert B. Taney monument in Mt. Vernon also came down. Crews are on the site of the confederate Women’s monument at University Parkway to take that one down. This comes just days after the Baltimore City Council passed a resolution Monday calling for the immediate deconstruction of these monuments.”

There it is! Straight out of the movie “The Patriot” with Mel Gibson, as with the character he played, Benjamin Martin: “An elected legislature can trample a man’s rights as easily as a king.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Although I respect this author, and have frequently linked to his articles at shtfplan, I disagree with him on this issue, and here is why.

I think that this destabilisation under way is more a product of the Deep State, in an effort to get Trump to declare martial law, and suspend the Constitution and Bill of rights.

Then, the warmongers among them can proceed with all the wars they have hatched, against North Korea; Iran; Russia; and China, and all peaceful, logical criticism of these wars will be forbidden.

If people persist with their criticism, they may well be jailed, or worse.

From the State of California's "You Can't Make this stuff up" Department: 1 Year in Jail for Using Wrong Transgender Pronoun

A new bill being considered by the California State Senate would punish people who “willfully and repeatedly” refuse “to use a transgender resident’s preferred name or pronouns” in a public health, retirement or housing institution.

The bill, SB 219, was proposed by State Sen. Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco). It includes several other provisions that require a health facility, for example, to honor the gender identity of a patient, meaning that the patient must be admitted to a room that comports with his or her chosen gender; allowed to use whatever bathroom he or she wants to use; and wear whatever clothing or cosmetics he or she decides to wear. It has gone through several amendments.

CBN News notes: “Fines for repeat offenders could be as high as $1,000 and a jail term of up to a year.”

Inheritance scams

A scammer may contact you out of the blue to tell you that you can claim a large inheritance from a distant relative or wealthy benefactor. You may be contacted by letter, phone call, text message, email or social networking message.

The scammer usually poses as a lawyer, banker or other foreign official, and claims that the deceased left no other beneficiaries.

Sometimes the scammer will say you are legally entitled to claim the inheritance. Alternatively, they might say that an unrelated wealthy person has died without a will, and that you can inherit their fortune through some legal trickery because you share the same last name.

Caught On Tape: Spanish Police Kill Five Terrorist In Separate Terror Plot

Update: The police force for Spain’s Catalonia region says its troopers shot and killed four suspects and wounded a fifth in a resort town south of Barcelona to “respond to a terrorist attack.” The regional police said in a tweet that they are investigating whether the Cambrils suspects were wearing explosive vests. Its officers planned to carry out several controlled explosions. The force says it is working on the theory that the Cambrils suspects were linked to the Barcelona attack, as well as to a Wednesday night explosion in the town of Alcanar in which one person was killed.

Subsequently, the police said the fifth suspect shot in the resort town of Cambrils has died and six civilians have been injured. Police earlier Friday morning had said four suspects had been killed in the town south of Barcelona during a police operation to “respond to a terrorist attack.”

"This Is Dangerous": Digital Activists Slam Tech Firms For Banning Neo-Nazi Websites

As social media and internet companies scramble to ban or otherwise cut ties with extremist and far right-wing websites like the neo-nazi Daily Stormer, which were unceremoniously dropped by the likes of GoDaddy, Google and security firm Cloudflare earlier this week after helping to organize last weekend's deadly "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville, a prominent nonprofit has come forward to defend them.

The Electronic Frontier Foundation, or EFF, best known for its activism surrounding net neutrality has a simple message: even though you don’t agree with their message, banning people from the internet is a slippery slope. Which is why it called on domain-name companies like Google and GoDaddy to “draw a hard line” and not remove or suspend websites based solely on their content.

USA Is Now Twice As Likely To 'Default' Than Germany

While the market turmoil (stocks down a few percentage points from all-time record highs) is being pinned on various factors (from North Korea, Trump, & Cohn to terrible retailer earnings and J-Hole anxiety), we suspect the real cause of market uncertainty is starting to peak through - the looming debt ceiling crisis that has now become too big and too imminent to ignore.

Of course, uncertainty in The White House is starting to make investors realize the chance of successfully navigating the debt ceiling crisis without a government shutdown are dwindling...

With the T-Bill market pricing in serious disruption at the end of September, the risk of a technical default for US Treasury debt is starting to rise and is now spiking relative to Germany.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And please remember; September is just a couple of weeks away!

Florida prisons — all of them — on lockdown

All of Florida’s 97,000 state prison inmates are on lockdown — and will remain confined to their dorms at least through the weekend — in response to unspecified threats about potential rioting, officials from the Florida Department of Corrections confirmed Thursday.

All able-bodied officers, including new recruits, were ordered to report to work starting Thursday. Graduations have been postponed this weekend so that new officers can assist with staffing and help conduct searches for weapons and other contraband, FDC said. Probation officers, too, have been brought in.

A Venezuelan Tanker Is Stranded Off The Louisiana Coast

A tanker loaded with 1 million barrels of Venezuelan heavy crude has been stranded for over a month off the coast of Louisiana, not because it can't sail but as a result of Venezuela's imploding economy, and its inability to obtain a bank letter of credit to deliver its expensive cargo. It's the latest sign of the financial troubles plaguing state-run oil company PDVSA in the aftermath of the latest US sanctions against the Maduro regime, and evidence that banks are slashing exposure to Venezuela across the board as the Latin American nation spirals into chaos.

As Reuters reports, following the recently imposed US sanctions, a large number of banks have closed accounts linked to officials of the OPEC member and have refused to provide correspondent bank services or trade in government bonds. The stranded tanker is one direct casualty of this escalation.

Carmageddon: Deep Subprime Auto Delinquencies Spike To 10-Year Highs

If you're still on the fence about whether the auto market in this country is anything but a massive bubble being propped up by extremely loose credit underwriting standards, then we think Equifax has just provided some definitive evidence that just might push you over the edge.

In discussing delinquency trends in deep subprime auto ABS deals, Equifax Chief Economist Amy Crews Cutts recently pointed out that 2016 and 2017 vintage deals are mysteriously performing more like 2007 securitizations than those underwritten in 2010.

Abraham Lincoln monument torched in Chicago: ‘An absolute disgraceful act’

Abraham Lincoln has joined George Washington on the list of those targeted by Chicagoans in a national debate over Civil War-era monuments.

Alderman Raymond Lopez took to Facebook Wednesday night to decry the defacing of a statue representing the nation’s 16th president in the Englewood neighborhood. The giant bust appears to have been damaged after someone in the 15th Ward sprayed and ignited a flammable liquid.

“What an absolute disgraceful act of vandalism. This bust of Abraham Lincoln, erected by Phil Bloomquist on August 31, 1926, was damaged & burned,” Mr. Lopez wrote, a local NBC affiliate reported. “If anyone has any information regarding this act, please contact the police or my office immediately.”

“F- Abe Lincoln,” responded Quintin Mitchell, whose comment was “liked” or deemed “funny” by 160 others.

PAUL CRAIG ROBERTS: Because Trump held both sides accountable for C...ville violence, the Left accuses him of supporting White Supremacists

What the liberal/progressive/left is trying to do with Charlottesville is to associate Trump supporters with White Supremacists and in this way demonize Trump supporters so that they will not have a voice when Trump is overthrown in a coup. Or it can be put in a different way: Charlottesville is being used by someone to discredit Trump and the people who elected him in order to pave the way for a coup, and the liberal/progressive/left is enabling the plot.

Upon reflection, I think that for most of the liberal/progressive/left the denunciations and one-sided interpretation of Charlottesville are just the ingrained knee-jerk reaction of people brought up in Identity Politics. In Identity Politics, everyone is a White Hat except racist, sexist, homophobic, gun-nut white males. The only tolerable white males are those who accept this characterization of themselves. All others are “white supremacists” or “nazis.”

Why Was This 'Crowd Hire' Company Recruiting $25 An Hour 'Political Activists' In Charlotte Last Week?

Now, the discovery of a craigslist ad posted last Monday, almost a full week before the Charlottesville protests, is raising new questions over whether paid protesters were sourced by a Los Angeles based "public relations firm specializing in innovative events" to serve as agitators in counterprotests.

The ad was posted by a company called "Crowds on Demand" and offered $25 per hour to "actors and photographers" to participate in events in the "Charlotte, NC area." While the ad didn't explicitly define a role to be filled by its crowd of "actors and photographers" it did ask applicants to comment on whether they were "ok with participating in peaceful protests."

Krieger Warns "Nazi Fears & 'Hate Speech' Hysteria Are Being Amplified To Attack Civil Liberties"

It doesn’t take courage to denounce Nazism. Moreover, it appears many of the people incessantly proclaiming how anti-Nazi they are, happen to be the same folks who have the most to answer for when it comes to all sorts of transgressions against the world over the past couple of decades.

That said, I’ll give my my quick two cents on the Nazi, white supremacist hysteria currently being amplified by the corporate media.

Georgia Judge Suspended for Comparing Attack on US Monuments to ISIS Actions

In the wake of the Charlottesville mêlée, reactionary ‘social justice’ flash mobs and assorted vigilantes have begun a campaign of attacking and destroying statues and monuments all over the country. The irrational rationale of these activists is that these historic monuments represent oppression and slavery, and therefore they must marked for ceremonial destruction.

Charlottesville Police Come Forward: We Were Told to “STAND DOWN” to Ignite Race War (Video)

A Charlottesville police officer has come forward to express his outrage at being told to “stand down” by the city mayor during violent clashes between protesters.

The officer also claims the protests, which pitched “white supremacists” against members of Antifa, were “set up” to allow for the groups to ignite into exactly what happened.

“We [Charlotesville police] were ordered to bring the rival groups together. As soon as they were in contact with each other, we were told to stand down. It was outrageous. We weren’t allowed to arrest anyone without asking the mayor first. We weren’t even allowed to stop the driver as he sped away.“

“The event was being set up as far back as at least May and it went like clockwork.”
