US issues list of 47 demands to North Korea

It would seem that the manner in which the denuclearization of North Korea must be performed before sanctions may be lifted has been determined by Washington.

The Japanese Foreign Minister, Taro Kono, describes a list of demands which was delivered to Pyongyang by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo during his visit.

As to whether these demands have been agreed upon by Kim’s regime isn’t included in the statement.

Security guarantees on Washington’s part have not yet been hammered out, and the precise meaning of Washington’s promise not to attempt to topple the regime is lacking in detail.

BEX ALERT - Leaked Video: IDF General Warns Iran Is Preparing to Attack Israel from Syria

Leaked video from a meeting between Israel’s head of Military Intelligence, Maj. Gen. Tamir Hyman, and a number of foreign security ministers shows him warning them that Iran’s presence in Syria isn’t meant to support Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s battle against terrorists, but instead to threaten Israel.

Hyman showed the crowd of foreign security officials a map of suspected Iranian bases in Syria. The leaked video wasn't of a high-enough quality to pick it up, but it "showed them spread throughout the country," according to the Times of Israel. The video was shot apparently in secret at a homeland security conference held in Jerusalem by Israeli Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan during the week of June 11.

Iceland supporters have won over their fellow football fans in Russia at the Moscow World Cup by performing their signature Viking thunderclap in their debut against Argentina.

Fans formed a sea of blue t-shirts and novelty viking hats as they waved and cheers in the stands for the Group D match at the Spartak Stadium this evening.

In a witty meeting with international media on Friday, Iceland coach Heimir Hallgrimsson began by welcoming the room in Russian, praised his team's hosts and its first opponent, then disarmed his inquisitors by heading off the usual question about his day job.

Wojtek the Soldier Bear - WWII

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This short video is dedicated to the memory of a very extraordinary animal. A little Syrian Brown Bear abandoned by his mother and rescued by a group of men who had also lost everything. Together, the men and the bear would travel across the Middle East, and fight at Monte Cassino. The men of the Polish II Corps would name the little bear cub Wojtek (roughly meaning little warrior or happy warrior). Eventually the bear was formally enlisted into the British Army as a Private. This ensured that when the Poles were deployed to Italy from North Africa the bear would go too. Serving with a transport company Wojtek travelled Allied supply lines, usually sitting upfront in the driver's cab. Mimicking his comrades, Wojtek would occasionally help load and unload trucks, and move supplies. The bear's great strength meant that he could easily carry ammunition crates and artillery shells, which he did under fire during the last battle for Monte Cassino in the summer of 1944. Wojtek's supply company adopted the image of a bear carrying an artillery shell as the unit insignia. After the war, the Poles returned to the UK for demobilisation. Sadly, none of the men or the army was in a position to home an adult bear. Finally, Wojtek was re-homed in Edinburgh zoo, where he lived out the rest of his days. He died in 1963, aged 22. Beloved by his comrades, Wojtek was playful, mischievous, inquisitive, intelligent, loyal and brave.

'Merkel could be out by NEXT WEEK!': German MP claims Chancellor could lose her job as she REFUSES to back down on 'open-door' migrant policy

Angela Merkel could be ousted as Chancellor by next week if she doesn't come up with a plan for the migrant crisis, a German MP claims.

Kai Whittaker, a member of Ms Merkel's Christian Democratic Union, said infighting could weaken the ruling coalition and make her position untenable.

Ms Merkel is at war with her Interior Minister Horst Seehofer, who wants Germany to send back migrants who have registered in other EU countries.

Pope Francis says having an abortion after pre-natal tests such as Down's Syndrome screenings is 'the same thing as Nazis pursuing a pure race'

Pope Francis declared having an abortion after finding birth defects in an unborn child was just as bad as the Nazi eugenics program.

Ditching his prepared remarks to a meeting of an Italian family association, Francis spoke from the heart with off-the-cuff comments.

He lamented how some couples chose not to have any children, and others resorted to pre-natal testing to see if their baby had any malformations or genetic problems.

CATHOLIC BISHOPS CONFERENCE IN FLORIDA CALLS FOR CATHOLICS TO DISOBEY TRUMP IMMIGRATION POLICIES, THREATENS ‘CANONICAL PUNISHMENT’

Bishop Edward Weisenburger of Tucson, Ariz., made a bolder suggestion, raising the possibility of implementing canonical penalties for Catholics “who are involved in this,” referring to children being separated from their families at the border. Canonical penalties can range from denial of sacraments to excommunication, though Weisenburger did not specify what he intended beyond referring to sanctions that already exist for “life issues.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think this violates the terms of the church's tax exempt status.

And let us not forget that the ultimate blame for this rests, not with Donald Trump, but with those people coming across the border illegally.

Nosey neighbors: Austria demands Germany come clean on alleged massive state-level spying

Austria has urged Berlin to “clarify” allegations of large-scale surveillance conducted by German Federal Intelligence Service (BND) in the early 2000s, following a damning report on German spying activities in Austrian media.
“There must be no such thing among friendly states,” Austria’s Chancellor Sebastian Kurz said, at an extraordinary press conference in Vienna on Saturday.

According to a report, published by Profil magazine on Friday, from 1999 to 2006 BND carried out surveillance operations based on some 2,000 so-called “selectors” – keywords for search, such as names, phone numbers, e-mails and others. The information on the spying activities is based on an internal BND database, provided by a German source, the report states.

Chinese Paper Says British Navy is Only Attention Seeking Over South China Plan

Plans by Britain to sail a Royal Navy warship through the disputed South China Sea later this year is merely an attention-seeking exercise, according to China's state media that could have potentially damaging trade implications between the two countries.

China has now responded to the news that the UK plans to sail its anti-submarine Type 23 frigate, HMS Sutherland, will make the passage on her return from Australia later this year to assert freedom of navigation rights and challenge Beijing‘s increasing dominance in the region.

In an article in the widely read state-run tabloid Global Times, published in its English and Chinese-language editions, it warned: "If not provocation, the Royal Navy should behave modestly when passing through the South China Sea. By acting tough against China, Britain's Ministry of Defense is trying to validate its existence and grab attention."

Fatal Flaw Reportedly Paralyzes the 'Backbone of the British Royal Navy'

A number of Britain’s top-notch warships ended up spending more time docked than at sea due to their temperature-sensitive engines.

The six Type 45 guided missile destroyers which comprise “the backbone of the Royal Navy” spent the majority of 2017 at the dock awaiting an expensive refit, which is only expected to begin in 2020, The Daily Mail reports.

"HMS Dragon spent 309 days in Portsmouth last year, followed by HMS Daring with 232 days and HMS Diamond with 203. HMS Duncan spent the most time at sea, but was still in dock for 197 days. From January to March this year, HMS Daring, HMS Dauntless and HMS Defender have not left port," the newspaper stated.

Cops Caught Injecting Powerful Sedative They Classify As ‘Date Rape Drug’ into Dozens of Suspects

Ketamine, the tranquilizer that is being used, has been popular in the club scene for years and has recently seen limited therapeutic research and use for a number of psychological ailments, including depression. Despite the fact that it is a “party drug,” Ketamine is an extremely strong dissociative, which can severely impair memory and make it difficult for people to move.

For this reason, the Minneapolis Police Department manual classifies Ketamine as a “date rape” drug, despite the fact that it is a well-known and popular party drug that large numbers of people do voluntarily, on their own free will. However, the fact that the department considers this a “date rape” drug, makes it even more alarming that they are involuntarily dosing suspects with this substance when they have not even been charged with a crime.

BLM Agents Open Fire on Innocent Couple, Shoot Woman Because ATV Drove Near Restricted Area

The couple was exploring the deserts of Joshua Tree National Park when their ATV got a flat tire. They said that because they did not have a spare, they were traveling much slower than they would if they had four properly inflated tires. At around 11:00 p.m. on June 10, they came face to face with federal agents whom the Mejias said immediately opened fire on them. In a hail of bullets, Denise was struck in the head and hand before BLM agents ceased fire. Predictably, police are telling a different story.

A press release issued by the Riverside County Sheriff’s Office, who is investigating the shooting, claimed that the Mejias were in a restricted area and failed to heed BLM officer commands to stop:

(A) Bureau of Land Management officer attempted to stop an off-road vehicle and an officer involved shooting occurred.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I wonder what the Federal government is hiding out in Joshua Tree National Park, and why any portion of a National Park would be off limits to the public?

Stu Smallwood on why South Korea must leave the American Orbit to achieve lasting peace

Stu Smallwood joins Scott to discuss his article “For Lasting Peace, President Moon Must Lead South Korea Out of America’s Orbit.” Smallwood says that first we have to consider the perspective of the South Koreans and understand how the corruption of the previous South Korean regime led to a political awakening that has affected South Korean popular views toward the North. Smallwood then shares the backstory of President Moon Jae-in and how his unlikely rise as president for peace. Finally Smallwood makes the case that South Korea realistically can continue the peace deal with the North, even in the United States ultimately backs out—and that Moon Jae-in’s political legacy will rest on the decision.

Why the US will never say sorry for destroying Iraq

A new poll conducted by the Pew Research Center has found that 43 percent of Americans still believe that invading Iraq was the right decision. Let that sink in for a minute: almost half of Americans still believe that an illegal war, based on doctored intelligence and entirely debunked claims, which resulted in almost immeasurable death and destruction, was the right thing to do, morally, politically, or otherwise ... Back to Iraq. A survey conducted for the National Geographic Society in 2006 found that 63 percent of Americans aged 18-24 could not locate Iraq on a map. This is astonishing, given that the US has fought two wars there since 1990 and occupied the country for close to a decade.

Israel continues to wag the dog for Middle Eastern wars

Israel's fingerprints are all over American interventionism, reflecting Jewish power in the United States and the presence of a plethora of well-funded Israel-centric lobbies, think tanks and media outlets ... Israel is not at all shy about what it wants to happen, namely a war in Syria targeting both Damascus and Tehran, leading to a much bigger war with the Iranians. Fought by Uncle Sam, to be sure, as Jewish lives are far too precious to waste ... Syria is only part of a much larger problem. It is remarkable the extent to which Israeli concerns dominate those of the United States, which now has a foreign policy that often is not even remotely connected to actual U.S. interests.

The Iraq War: In the beginning was the lie

What we do know for sure is that the rationale for going to war was based on lies ... US Secretary of State Colin Powell giving his speech to the UN Security Council on February 5, 2003. Six weeks before the war began, Powell spent 76 minutes influencing international public opinion in favor of war. The core of his speech was that Saddam Hussein possessed biological and chemical weapons of mass destruction, that his regime was supporting international terrorism, and that it aimed to build nuclear weapons ... We remember Powell's speech primarily because all of these claims turned out to be false. In 2005 Powell himself described the speech as a lasting "blot" on his career.

he Truth about Oil and the Iraq War, 15 Years Later

The more I learned the more I realized that there was an oil agenda and I was just an unknowing participant. The oil agenda I discovered and experienced was to supply Iraq oil to Israel. The players were the neoconservatives in the Bush Administration, their favorite Iraqi - Dr Ahmed Chalabi and the Israeli government. One of the motives was because Israel was paying a huge premium for its oil imports and this premium had just started in the late1990s. The agenda called for the reopening of the old Kirkuk to Haifa pipeline and its significant expansion. When this pipeline plan became unattainable in the second half of 2003 then Chalabi took other actions to get inexpensive Iraqi oil to Israel.

The Case Of Wilbur Ross' Phantom $2 Billion

Ross' appointment as secretary of commerce came with one catch: He had to disclose his assets, providing evidence that he was not as rich as he had long claimed. In 2015, he sent Forbes a detailed breakdown of his supposed holdings,......for a fanciful total of $3.4 billion, according to notes taken at the time. We eventually listed him at $2.9 billion. Last year, Ross' assistant claimed $3.7 billion; we stuck with $2.9 billion.

His former colleagues saw the moment of reckoning coming as soon as he accepted a Cabinet role. "It was surprising because he would have to reveal to the world that he wasn't a billionaire," one ex-employee said. "I was surprised that he would take that risk."

The campaign against a key aspect of new European copyright legislation has picked up a significant backer: the United Nations' freedom of expression expert.

David Kaye, the UN Special Rapporteur, has sent a lengthy letter to the European Commission outlining his concerns about Article 13 of the Copyright in the Digital Single Market Directive, which would require large internet platforms to introduce automated upload filters that remove copyrighted content.

Earlier this week while most of the world was transfixed on the World Cup, the Trump/Kim handshake, or a multitude of other sundry events, Julius Malema, aka the Hitler of South Africa, was busy telling white people in his country that he’s not going wage genocide against them. Yet.

In an interview with TRT World News published this week, Malema said, “We have not called for the killing of white people. At least for now. I can’t guarantee the future.”

When the reporter mentioned that some people might view these remarks as a call to genocide, Malema responded, “Crybabies. Crybabies,” but later warned white South Africans that “the masses are on board” for “an un-led revolution and anarchy”.

A federal judge and the State Department inspector general slammed the FOIA stonewalling.

Clinton’s private email server was not publicly disclosed until she received a congressional subpoena in 2015. A few months later, the FBI Counterintelligence Division opened a criminal investigation of the “potential unauthorized storage of classified information on an unauthorized system.”

Pepe Escobar: This Is The Key Word In The Trump-Kim Show

By reaffirming the Panmunjom Declaration, the US President has committed to bringing its military back from South Korea and thus a complete denuclearization of the South as well as the North...

The Trump-Kim geopolitical reality-TV show – surreal for some – offered unparalleled entries to the annals of international diplomacy. It will be tough to upstage the US President pulling an iPad and showing Kim Jong-un the cheesy trailer of a straight-to-video 1980s B-grade action movie – complete with a Sylvester Stallone cameo – casting the two leaders as heroes destined to save the world’s 7 billion people.

Away from the TV, the former “Rocket Man”, now respectfully recast in Trump terminology as “Chairman Kim”, did strike a formidable coup by completely erasing the dreaded acronym CVID – or “complete, verifiable, irreversible denuclearization” – from the final text of the Singapore joint statement.

Whether you love President Trump, hate him, or have a "hug and (gentle, non-treatening) punch" relationship with his administration, you have to hand it to him for the Singapore Summit with Kim Jung Un; at least, it is a start toward the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula, and that, in any sane person's perspective, is progress.

"The Global Bond Curve Just Inverted": Why JPM Thinks A Market Crash May Be Imminent

At the beginning of April, JPMorgan's Nikolaos Panigirtzoglou pointed out something unexpected: in a time when everyone was stressing out over the upcoming inversion in the Treasury yield curve, the JPM analyst showed that the forward curve for the 1-month US OIS rate, a proxy for the Fed policy rate, had already inverted after the two-year forward point. In other words, while cash instruments had yet to officially invert, the market had already priced this move in.

One way of visualizing this inversion was by charting the front end between the 2-year and 3-year forward points of the 1-month OIS. Here, as JPM showed two months ago, a curve inversion had arisen for the first time during the first week of January, but it only lasted for two days at the time and the curve re-steepened significantly in the beginning of April.

THE SWAMPJudge Who Jailed Manafort Also Cleared Hillary Clinton In Benghazi Case

The judge appointed by Barack Obama who put Paul Manafort in jail this week previously cleared Hillary Clinton of responsibility for the deaths of four American servicemen in Benghazi, Libya in 2012. Manafort was put in jail for allegedly engaging in witness tampering, but most people see the jailing as a fraud to divert public attention away from the IG report that slammed James Comey and bolstered President Donald Trump’s arguments against the corrupt Deep State.

Amy Berman Jackson, a past Bill Clinton donor and federal judge, threw out a lawsuit against Hillary Clinton filed by Sean Smith’s mother Patricia Smith and Tyrone Woods’ father Charles Woods. The lawsuit claimed that Hillary Clinton revealing the location of Ambassador Stevens on her non-secure private email server prior to Stevens’ murder put their dead children in harm’s way.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why am I totally unsurprised at this revelation?!?

In this country, alleged "justice" has devolved into "Just Us"; the elite rarely eat their own, the persecution of Manafort, coupled with the clearing of Clinton for Bengazi, simply proves the point.

Funding for the US Military: Public Barred from National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) Senate Committee Markup

On May 24th, the Senate Armed Services Committee (SASC) met behind closed doors and approved the massive 1140 page National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA S 2987 ) of 2019 by a 25-2 vote which authorizes ‘funding and provides activities for the US military.’ At the same time, the Committee‘s l0 page Executive Summary and its 654 page Committee report were released explaining ‘details’ of the $716 billion legislative package.

While the Committee dutifully heard public testimony on the NDAA including Department of Defense Secretary James Mattis and Gen. Joseph Dunford, Chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff on April 26th , once the SASC subcommittees began their mark up on May 21 and May 22 and the Full SASC met to begin its two day mark-up on May 23 and May 24th, all SASC consideration of the NDAA was declared “SECRET” as committee doors were sealed shut preventing all public and press attendance

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, in the opinion of this Administration, the people who ultimately pay for these wars, have utterly no right to know what funding is actually going to be spent to enable those wars?!?

War of Aggression: The Saudi & UAE Slaughter in Yemen isn’t a Proxy Conflict with Iran

Alongside their throttlehold over which reporters can visit what parts of Yemen, and thus what story they can tell, Saudi and Emirati investments in public relations, lobbying, think-tanks, and political consultants are shaping the narrative about their war there. Headline writers, pundits, Wikipedia, news correspondents, and even some so-called experts frame the asymmetric conflict as a “proxy war.” Sunnis nations led by Saudi Arabia are battling Shi`a Iran and its regional proxies, the story goes; the world’s worst man-made humanitarian disaster thus appears as un-named collateral damage.

Why We Should Be Alarmed That Israeli Forces and US Police Are Training Together

Razan al-Najjar is the latest victim in Israel’s onslaught of Palestinians to go viral. The 21-year-old nurse was shot dead by a sniper. Her only weapon? A wad of medical gauze. She’d been treating protesters who’ve been rallying for their right to return to homes they were expelled from as refugees.

Unfortunately, the death of another unarmed civilian is hardly even news to Palestinians.

May 14, the day the United States moved its embassy to Jerusalem in symbolic support of recognizing the city as Israel’s capital, was also the bloodiest day in this recent wave of demonstrations. In just one day, at least 50 Palestinians were killed and 2,400 more injured by the Israeli military. (Other counts put those figures even higher.)

This isn’t an anomaly. In this latest wave of demonstrations, Israeli forces have killed dozens of unarmed protesters and wounded thousands more. And they’re not apologizing.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Great; now, US police will be treating American citizens...in precisely the same way that the IDF treats Palestinians.

How absolutely wonderful!!

‘The Israeli military said,’ the New York Times reports

New York Times reporter David M. Halbfinger didn’t know whether the demonstrations in Gaza were “peaceful protests or violent riots.” So he embedded himself with Israeli snipers poised on the perimeter of Gaza concentration camp to find out (“At Gaza Protests: Kites, Drones, Gas, Guns and the Occasional Bomb,” June 8, 2018).

One might suppose if he wanted an answer to that question, the obvious place to go would be among the demonstrators. But never mind.

According to human rights organizations, the weekly Gaza demonstrations have been overwhelmingly nonviolent. But from day one, Halbfinger and his Times colleagues have recurrently portrayed them as armed confrontations in which Israeli snipers return the fire of protesters. They rely on official Israeli statements that are quoted without demurral, without further investigation, and without independent corroboration from, say, human rights monitors:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Any stories about this conflict, written by minions of the (thoroughly muzzled and neutered) US presstitutes will, of course, only present Israel's side of the conflict; it's a given.

US Threatens ‘Measures’ Against Syria for Offensive in Southwest

With the Syrian government saying that any more failures to take back the country’s southwest diplomatically would lead them to launch an offensive, the US State Department is threatening “firm and appropriate measures” to punish Syria for any such attempt.

Syria has been expected to launch such an offensive for awhile. Russia negotiated with Israel to get them to agree to keep out of the fighting, in return for Russia urging Iran and Hezbollah to remain out of the border region. The assumption has been for some time this cleared room for the push.

US officials, however, say that Syria would be violating the previous de-escalation deal made between the US, Russia, and Turkey, as some of the offensive would take place in that area. Other de-escalation zones have effectively been erased by government gains, or the wiping out of certain rebels by others.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Notice that this alleged "de-escalation deal", for some bizzare reason, does not seem to involve the sovereign state of Syria; only Russia, Turkey, and the US appear to be named.

But we all understand the simple translation of these Washingtonese statements; the US government is looking for any excuse with which to justify a full-scale invasion of Syria, and to affect regime change in Damascus.

However, there is a 600 lb gorilla, draped across the Bosendorfer grand in the living room here, and that is is Russia; the possibility of a misunderstanding, leading to a "hot confrontation" between Russia and the US military in Syria, excalates exponentially, every day the US forces stay on Syrian soil.

French special forces on the ground in Yemen: Le Figaro

French special forces are present on the ground in Yemen with forces from the United Arab Emirates, French newspaper Le Figaro reported on Saturday, citing two military sources.

The newspaper gave no further information about their activities. The Defence Ministry was not immediately available for comment, but its usual policy is not to comment on special forces’ operations.

A French parliamentary source recently told Reuters French special forces were in Yemen.

Forces from an Arab alliance entered the airport in Yemen’s main port city on Saturday, in the biggest battle of the coalition’s war against the Iran-aligned Houthi movement.

The French Defence Ministry said on Friday that France was studying the possibility of carrying out a mine-sweeping operation to provide access to the port of Hodeidah once the coalition had wrapped up its military operations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How convenient for the Saudis, that France is about to participate in the genocide of the Yemeni people!!

And we have a little companion piece to that, courtesy of antiwar.com:

UAE says that the US government rejected repeated requests to help attack Yemeni port

How true this is, remains to be seen; but it appears that the US government has suddenly understood that the optics of the US military participating in this slaughter of the Yemeni people, is not going particularly well for them, as more and more Americans realize that their country's military has been participating in Saudi war crimes for years.

US senators urge Pentagon to fully disclose its role in Saudi-led war in Yemen

Three US senators have called on the Pentagon to immediately reveal the extent of US military support to the Saudi-led Arab coalition that launched an attack on Hodeidah, a key port city and last humanitarian lifeline in Yemen.
“We call on you to immediately disclose the full extent of the US military role in the Saudi-led war against Yemen’s Houthis, including the use of special operations forces; disclose any role that the Pentagon is currently performing, has been asked to perform, or is considering performing regarding an attack on the port of Hodeida,” says the letter sent to Defense Secretary James Mattis on Friday, and signed by Senators Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont), Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Chris Murphy (D-Connecticut)

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This kind of disclosure from Sec Def Mattis... will only happen when pigs discover that they are aerodynamic.

These three Senators need to understand that both the US and UK military industrial complex are making a killing, literally and figuratively, from the arms sales to the Saudi government for its genocide in Yemen, so no public declaration opposing this impending assault will ever happen from either government.

Are they not aware that the UN rejected an immediate cease fire in Yemen yesterday, and that move was orchestrated by the US and UK?!?

UN rejects plan for an Immediate ceasefire in Yemen

Both countries want to see the war move forward, and to see as many Yemeni people as possible murdered, through direct military assault; disease; and malnutrition; after all, do these Senators not understand just how "swell" war is for business?!?

US to Leave ‘Foolish, Unworthy’ UN Human Rights Council Over Anti-Israel Bias

The United States’ demands regarding reforming the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) have failed to be met, and as such Washington is reportedly ready to pull out over what it calls anti-Israel bias and the inclusion of alleged rights abusers.

Diplomats told Reuters that it's merely a matter of time before the US exits the council, which will convene Monday for a three week convention that will last until July 6. One US source who spoke anonymously said that an announcement looks "imminent."

Another US official in Geneva, where the UNHRC will meet June 18, said, "we are still moving ahead with our engagement for the coming session."

"Blood Is on Your Hands": Nikki Haley Heckled During University Speech (VIDEOS)

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US and UK have lost any credibility at the UN in general, and the Human Rights Council in particular, by preventing the vote on an immediate cease-fire in Yemen.

UN Rehects Plan for an Immediate Cease-fire in Yemen.

Madam Ambassador, you may as well pack it up, and resign; the UN has just proven itself impotent to stop the bloodshed here, and it is primarily because of grandstanding by the US and UK here, that this has happened.

It appears, in this move, that both you and the UK's Ambassador to the UN, Karen Pierce, have both had your consciences surgically removed, so that arms sales to Saudi Arabia by both countries can continue at warp speed, and the Saudi genocide against the Yemenis can continue, unabated.

Oh, and by "human rights abusers", are you talking about the US's new BFF, Saudi Arabia, which is conducting this genocide against the people of Yemen, enabled through US military participation in their war crimes?!?

Ambassador Haley, let's be clear about for whom you are working at the UN; you are not working for the needs and concerns of We the People; you are working for the needs and concerns of the US military/industrial complex, the Saudi government, and its new-found ally, Israel.

There is blood on your, and on the President's hands, because of this; and those with any shred of moral decency still left in them, will not soon forget this.

IG Finds FBI Agents “Willingness” To Damage Trump Presidency

Former FBI Director James Comey was blasted by Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s office for his actions during the bureau’s ‘midyear’ investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server to conduct government business and the investigation found evidence that other members of the FBI deliberately took official action in an attempt to keep President Donald Trump from holding elected office.

Horowitz’s 500 page report, a summary of which was obtained by this reporter and other news outlets, also gave extensive and in-depth details of the dis-function within the bureau and Department of Justice from the beginning of the investigation in July, 2015 until Comey ended the probe into Clinton during the summer of 2016.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This alleged "report" is simply full of sound and fury, signifying nothing... other than a chronically dysfunctional, dystopian DOJ and government, which guarantees that the truly guilty (read: Hillary Clinton) continue to go unpunished.

Oh, and we also have thse little "gems" from a couple of companion pieces:

National Archives Missing Key Obama/Clinton Records Creating Another Crisis

In the middle of directing the difficult task of transferring the historically important records of the Obama administration into the National Archives, the archivist in charge, David Ferriero, ran into a serious problem: A lot of key records are missing. A first-rate librarian, Ferriero has been driving a much-needed digital overhaul and expansion of the National Archives over the nine years of his appointment. This will greatly improve the ability of digital search locally and remotely, as well as accessing the files themselves. To support this effort, in 2014 President Obama signed the Presidential and Federal Records Act Amendments. For the first time electronic government records were placed under the 1950 Federal Records Act.

How Orwellian of Obama; he was one of the most brilliant obfuscators in chief to ever decorate the oval office!!

FORMER BANK OF CANADA HEAD: PIPELINE PROTESTERS MAY BE KILLED. SO BE IT.

As Canada's controversial Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project faces ongoing opposition, the former governor of the Bank of Canada said that protesters may die but that the government should push the project through anyway.

Speaking at an event Wednesday, David Dodge said, "We're going to have some very unpleasant circumstances," the Edmonton Journal reported. "There are some people that are going to die in protesting construction of this pipeline. We have to understand that."

"Nevertheless, we have to be willing to enforce the law once it's there," Dodge said. "It's going to take some fortitude to stand up."

In an interview with the Journal, he elaborated by saying, "We have seen it other places, that equivalent of religious zeal leading to flouting of the law in a way that could lead to death."

Dodge's comments prompted outrage from climate activists.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Governments kill for money and corporate profits; it is just that mentally diseased, and just that simple.

WATCH BACTERIA ‘FISHING’ FOR DNA TO SPEED UP ITS OWN EVOLUTION

For the first time, bacteria has been seen ‘harpooning’ DNA and absorbing it into itself to speed up its evolution. The breakthrough could help in the fight against antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
Using a microscope and a new dyeing method, scientists observed one of the bacterium’s appendages, which is more than 10,000 times thinner than a human hair, reaching out and extracting DNA fragments from the surrounding environment. It then incorporated it into its own DNA. The process is known as “horizontal gene transfer.”

Scientists at Indiana University observed the process in Vibrio cholerae bacteria, which causes cholera, and have published their findings in the journal Nature Microbiology. They were able to capture the DNA transfer using a process which paints both the bacteria’s pili and the surrounding DNA fragments. Before now, it was impossible to understand how the pili works because it is just so small.
