Business associates of Mr. Browder have earned over $1.5 billion in Russia and never paid any taxes neither in Russia or the United States and yet the money escaped the country. They were transferred to the United States. They sent [a] huge amount of money, $400,000,000, as a contribution to the campaign of Hillary Clinton. Well that’s their personal case. It might have been legal, the contribution itself but the way the money was earned was illegal. So we have solid reason to believe that some [US] intelligence officers accompanied and guided these transactions. So we have an interest in questioning them.

Hawaii volcano: Lava bomb flies through roof of tour boat, injures at least 13

At least 13 people on a tour boat in Hawaii were injured after a volcanic explosion sent a lava bomb flying through the roof of the vessel.

Socialist Takeover of The Democratic Party

Socialism is the new ideological norm of the Democratic party. With candidates endorsed by the Democratic Socialist party winning nominations for state legislative seats and far-left progressives triumphing over traditional moderates elsewhere, the proof is in the pudding.
With the victory of 28-year-old socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez over House Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley, who was an entrenched liberal with hope to replace House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi as party leader, the Democrats have apparently lost control of their own party to the extremist faction.

Kurdish Fighters Selling US-Supplied Weapons on Black Market – Reports

The US provides weapons and other military equipment to allied Kurds fighting in Northern Syria.

Just as Washington has ramped up its support for Kurdish units in Syria, the fighters are selling their US-made weapons on the black market to make up for their expenses, the Arabic-language Daily Sabah reported, citing local sources in Northern Syria.

In keeping with an agreement between the US and Turkey, the Kurdish forces are to withdraw from Manbij and other areas west of the Euphrates River and surrender their weapons to the UN before the end of this year.

According to the sources, the Kurdish fighters fear that once they have handed over their weapons, Turkey might launch a new military operation against them in Northern Syria.

"Hence, they are selling the weapons to other militant groups that operate in the same region," they added.

US Message To Assad: "We Will Pull Out Of Syria If Iran Withdraws"

As Presidents Trump and Putin are set to meet Monday in Helsinki, efforts toward winding down the proxy war in Syria will no doubt be high on the agenda.

We explained previously that the diplomatic cards for ending the war seem to have fallen into place as just days before the historic summit Netanyahu said in a stunning turnaround for Israeli policy fresh off his own visit with Putin in Moscow that "Israel does not object to President Bashar al-Assad’s regaining control over all of Syria" so long as Iranian forces are pushed back from the Israeli border, according to the New York Times.

And now according to a new bombshell report, US military commanders have conveyed to Syrian President Assad via Russian mediation that "we will pull out of al-Tanf and the North if Iran withdraws from Syria."

Dershowitz: SCOTUS Confirmation Process Has Gotten Out Of Hand

The framers of our constitution would be turning over in their graves if they could see what happened to their words "with the advice and consent of the senate."

Now senators neither advise nor consent to Supreme Court nominations. They politicize, delay, demonize, obscure, fabricate and discredit what should be a non-partisan process of assuring that the most qualified lawyers serve on our highest court. Instead we have come to expect votes that are cast largely along party lines.

It was not always what it has now become. Even in the recent past, highly qualified but controversial nominees -- such as Antonin Scalia and Ruth Bader Ginsberg -- were confirmed with hardly any dissents. No more.

Adam Garrie: US Veto Power, A Weapon of Mass Obstruction Granting Impunity for Israeli Killings

Geopolitical expert Adam Garrie says that the Israeli regime’s possession of nuclear weapons and the American veto power at the UN Security Council have provided the regime with a feeling of impunity for their daily violations of international laws.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with FNA, Adam Garrie said that the US exercises its veto power “like a weapon of mass obstruction” to shield the Zionist regime at the UN Security Council.

Mr. Garrie believes that the US Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, acts more like the Ambassador of the Zionist regime than that of the United States. He likened the UN Security Council to “a shopping center where Zionist propaganda is for sale” and the US envoy to “a shop keeper lying to her customers” while trying to insult the intelligence of the whole world.

Trump Turns to Gaza as Middle East Deal of the Century Collapses

The Trump administration’s “Deal of the Century” for the Palestine-Israel has, predictably, gone over like a lead balloon. So it’s shifting gears. The Washington Post reports, “With President Trump’s promised Middle East peace plan stalled, administration officials are focusing on improving conditions in the impoverished Gaza Strip – a move that could put political pressure on Palestinian leaders to come to the negotiating table.”

Don’t hold your breath.

The “Deal of the Century” was dead on arrival because it was based on the idea that Saudi Arabia and Egypt would “deliver the Palestinians” on the cheap in return for a more formal Saudi-Egyptian-Israeli-US alliance against Iran. The Palestinians were expected to be satisfied with economic-development aid while their aspirations for their own state were essentially tabled, that is, confined to the rubbish bin.

Israel Attacks Airbase Outside Northern Syrian City of Aleppo

Israel attacks Syrian military targets seemingly several times per week at this point. On Sunday, however, they carried out a very rare flurry of missile strikes in the far north of Syria, hitting Nayrab military airport in Aleppo.

Nayrab is being called an “Iranian-linked base” by Israeli media, and is adjacent to the international airport there. The attacks were confirmed by several different outlets, but exactly what was accomplished in the attack is disputed.

Syrian state media outlet SANA said only damage to material was accomplished, while other outlets reported multiple casualties, including at least two dead Syrian soldiers from the strike. There is no official report on casualties yet.

The Israeli military, as usual, offered no comment on the strikes, saying they don’t comment on reports which emerged in foreign media. Israeli media outlets are generally treating this as a probable attack, however, making it the third Israeli strike in Syria in the past week.

Israeli Lawmakers Advance Bill Limiting Palestinians From Petitioning High Court

The Knesset's Constitution, Law and Justice Committee cleared on Sunday a bill that limits the High Court of Justice's authority to hear petitions filed by Palestinians in the West Bank.

The committee approved the government-sponsored bill for second and third readings. The bill would see administrative petitions transferred to the Jerusalem District Court instead.

In Israel, the same justices sit on both the High Court of Justice and the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court is the country's highest appeals court while the High Court functions as a trial court involving issues of justice that do not fall under the jurisdiction of any other court. Primarily, it deals with petitions against the State.

New Version of Nation-state Bill: Israel Will Encourage Establishment of Jewish-only Communities

The government coalition has reached an agreement regarding the clause in the “Jewish nation-state law” concerning the establishment of Jewish-only communities, Education Minister and Habayit Hayehudi chairman Naftali Bennett said Sunday.

Bennett said he had proposed the new wording of the clause, which states: “The state sees developing Jewish communities a national value and will act to encourage, promote and establish them.” The amended clause was approved by Attorney General Avichai Mendelblit, said Bennett.

The coalition has been making efforts over the past few days to reach agreement on the clause, which seeks to allow the establishment of Jewish-only communities, and became the target of harsh public and legal criticism.

Saboteurs of Peace: On the Road to Helsinki

If there was ever any doubt that the Russia-gate hoax is a scheme by the War Party to salvage their bankrupt foreign policy, and depose a democratically-elected President, then Robert Mueller’s indictment of twelve alleged GRU agents for “interfering” in the 2016 election settles the matter once and for all. Are we supposed to believe it was just a coincidence that the indictment was made public just as Trump was about to meet Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki?

An indictment of twelve individuals who will never contest the charges, and which will not have to be proven beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law – to whom is it addressed? Not to any jury, but to the court of public opinion. It is, in short, pure propaganda, meant to sabotage Trump’s Helsinki peace initiative before it has even convened.

Listen: Israel lobby seeks to erase occupation from Virginia schoolbooks

Human rights activists in Virginia are fighting to protect the quality and accuracy of schoolbooks as Israel advocacy organizations seek substantial changes to the texts.

The suggested changes would distort the way Israeli history is depicted, deliberately whitewashing its military occupation and ongoing policies of land theft, apartheid and expulsion of Palestinians.

These changes have been proposed to the Virginia Department of Education by the California-based Institute for Curriculum Services – a “strategic initiative” of the Jewish Community Relations Council, an organization with an active Israel lobby.

ICS director Aliza Craimer Elias recently boasted in a video interview that her firm works “behind the scenes” with textbook publishers to edit entries about Jews, Judaism and Israel and to train classroom educators with ICS curricula.

Israel’s secret assassinations

Israeli television recently aired a video of two Israeli soldiers filming themselves in the act of shooting a Palestinian protester at the Gaza boundary while cheering. Filming one’s own crimes against humanity – shooting Palestinians for sport – suggests a sense of security in never being held accountable.

Even more evidence of this impunity is apparent in Rise and Kill First: The Secret History of Israel’s Targeted Assassinations by veteran Israeli journalist Ronen Bergman, staff writer for The New York Times Magazine.

Prosecutors at the International Criminal Court might want to consider this book Exhibit A if Israeli government and military officials are ever indicted for war crimes. It contains open admissions of guilt in plotting and executing extralegal assassinations in violation of international law.

Israeli air raid kills two children in Gaza City

Two Palestinian children were killed on Saturday as Israel intensified its bombing of the Gaza Strip that it began on Friday night.

The health ministry in Gaza named the victims as Amir al-Nimra and Louay Kuhail.

On Monday, the Palestinian human rights group Al Mezan stated that the boys were both 14 years old.

The ministry said the children were killed by an Israeli missile that hit the al-Katiba area of Gaza City.

According to Al Mezan, Israeli warplanes fired five missiles at the al-Katiba building, a large unoccupied and unfinished concrete structure in the heart of Gaza City, on Saturday evening.

"Shameful": Lawmakers Slam Trump For Uncritical Comments Towards Russia

WASHINGTON: US lawmakers blasted President Donald Trump Monday over his uncritical comments towards Russia during a landmark summit with Vladimir Putin, calling it "shameful", "dangerous" and "verging on treason."
Senior Republican Senator Lindsey Graham described Trump's Helsinki summit and joint press conference with Putin as a "missed opportunity" to hold Russia accountable for meddling in the 2016 election.

Trump's answer to a question on election interference, in which he attacked US Democrats rather than Moscow's spies, "will be seen by Russia as a sign of weakness and create far more problems than it solves," Graham charged.

Senator Jeff Flake, a fellow Republican and staunch critic of the president, labelled his performance "shameful."

Nuclear Weapons Have Been Used Quite Regularly

Despite his global fame and notoriety, Dillinger was charged with just a single homicide in his short life – and even that came during a shoot-out, in 1934, with a police officer in Indiana who opened fire on Dillinger first, striking his bullet-proof vest, before the outlaw responded. During his reign, Dillinger is estimated to have stolen about $500,000, today worth more than nine million dollars.

This sum is a pittance by comparison to the money pilfered by corrupt bankers and developers across the West, who escaped being branded with “Public Enemy Number One” status, unlike Dillinger or Capone. Nor did they have waves of armed policemen and FBI agents hunting them either; in fact, in many cases the white-collar, business class criminals are let off with a rap on the knuckles, with the general population forking out to gloss over the mess. Such is the way the world works.

Peter Strzok worked for the CIA and FBI at the same time

Peter Strzok worked 24 years for the CIA. His job title was Chief of their Counterespionage Group.

The FBI never had such a unit.

Strzok (pronounced Strock, rhymes with sock) led the FBI's investigation into Hillary Clinton. She used personal email for classified government business while she was Secretary of State.

The FBI's investigation into Russian interference in the election of Donald J. Trump as President was also led by Strzok.

A joint CIA/FBI position was created by Congress in 1996. Strzok was "a senior FBI official" by being the CIA’s Chief of Counterespionage.

Oldest non-African modern human fossil revealed to be 195,000 years old

The popular consensus in palaeoanthropology places the ancestors of our species exclusively in Africa before making a successful migration into Eurasia around 60,000 years ago. There has been some level of recognition that perhaps small numbers of early modern humans reached the Levant and the Middle East around 120,000 years ago. It was believed that these earlier populations represented a small-scale failed migration that barely managed to leave the continent before dying off. Now new Homo sapiens fossils from Israel suggest that this popular model is almost completely wrong.

‘Til Death Don’t Us Part: A History Of Ghost Marriage

The idea of marrying a dead person is older than the Magna Carta — and it's called ghost marriage.

Imagine a world where “‘til death do us part” wasn’t taken literally — where you could be married after death, and even get married after you’d already passed on.

In actuality, there’s no need to imagine. Necrogamy, or marriage that takes place after death, is alive and well today. Though the form and frequency of the practice varies across the globe, the fact remains that in some places, the right to marry never ends, even beyond the grave…

Netanyahu, Trump discuss Iran, Syria ahead of Helsinki summit

“On Saturday evening, I spoke with US President Donald Trump over the telephone and discussed security and diplomatic issues in light of developments in the region, with Syria and Iran first and foremost, of course”, Netanyahu said during the Israeli cabinet’s weekly meeting.

“As you know, these issues will also come up at the president’s summit in Helsinki. Of course I discussed them with President Putin last Wednesday”, he added.

Netanyahu praised in his remarks what he described as the US President’s “firm policy” towards Iran, adding that since the policy was adopted “we have seen its significant impact on Iran”.

Israel Hayom added that the exercise “is the first of its kind in years”, and that Southern Command officials believe the drill to be “of great ?importance to the troops’ combat readiness”.

Dancing FBI Agent Who Shot Fellow Bar-Goer Gets Gun Back While Charge Pending

A Denver judge agreed to let an FBI agent carry his firearm again while he considers a possible plea deal to felony charges stemming from an off-duty incident.

Bishop’s lawyer told Judge Fran Simonet that the agency strongly encourages agents to carry their duty weapons both on and off duty, according to CBS 11. With that, Simonet agreed that the agent could resume carrying his firearm.

Under conditions set by the court, Bishop is not allowed to drink or use drugs while his case is pending, the Associated Press reported. He reportedly has delayed an evidentiary hearing to weigh a plea deal offered this week by Denver prosecutors.

Feminist Israelis attacked by right-wing Israelis; Police fail to respond because ‘attackers aren’t Arabs’

A group of Israeli Jewish feminists called the ‘Women of the Wall’ held their monthly prayer service at the ‘Western Wall’ in Jerusalem on Friday, and were assaulted by a group of right-wing religious Jewish zealots who threw stones at the women, beat them, and burned their prayer books.

The women were challenging what they see as misogynist practices within the Jewish tradition, and during their prayer service they wore the yarmulkes and traditional prayer shawls usually reserved for men in the Orthodox Jewish tradition.

Around 200 women gathered in prayer at the Western Wall to mark the beginning of the Hebrew month of Av, according to Israeli media sources. The Western Wall Heritage Foundation, which disapproves of the women’s interpretation of religious practices, had guards and police surround the area, but did not attack the women.

Most Palestinians children and youth detained have been reported to be subjected to some kind of assault in Israeli interrogation centers.

The child Muhi Al-Rishq, aged 15, from Al-Saadiyeh neighborhood, in the Old City of Jerusalem, one of the victims of torture and ill-treatment by interrogators in the center of Qishla, was subjected to torture in order to extract a confession from him against minors and young Jerusalemites.

Settlers Prevent Shepherds from Feeding Livestock in Jordan Valley

Illegal Israeli settlers, on Sunday, chased Palestinian shepherds out pasture areas near the village of Khallet Makahoul, in the northern Jordan Valley, preventing them from grazing their livestock, said a local activist.

Aref Daraghmeh, who monitors settlement activities in the Jordan Valley, said that settlers chased the shepherds and prevented them from grazing their livestock, although the settlers were grazing their sheep in the same area, according to WAFA.

Between 500,000 and 600,000 Israelis live in Jewish-only settlements across occupied Palestinian territories in violation of international law.

All settlements across the occupied territories are illegal under international law, particularly article 49 of the Fourth Geneva Convention, which establishes that the occupying power shall not deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies.

Peter Strzok’s arrogance is the product of a corrupt FBI

Watching FBI agent Peter Strzok battle with Congress, my initial reaction was pure anger. His repeated, arrogant insistence that he had done nothing wrong despite tons of evidence to the contrary convinced me he deserved immediate firing — if not the firing squad.

Gradually, though, anger gave way to amazement as Strzok grew increasingly combative and condescending. Given his predicament, the sneering and smirking were stupid, and yet he persisted.

Who is this jerk, I wondered, and how in the hell did he get to be a big shot at the FBI? And why are taxpayers still paying for the privilege of his malignant presence on the FBI payroll?

My answers can be summarized in four names: James Comey, Jeff Sessions, Rod Rosenstein and Christopher Wray. They are chief culprits in the death of public trust in the Department of Justice.

The cause of death was murder, and it was an inside job.

In rebuke of Dianne Feinstein, Kevin de León wins endorsement of California Democrats in Senate race

California Democratic Party leaders took a step to the left Saturday night, endorsing liberal state lawmaker Kevin de León for Senate in a stinging rebuke of Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein.

De León’s victory reflected the increasing strength of the state party’s liberal activist core, which was energized by the election of Republican Donald Trump as president.

The endorsement was an embarrassment for Feinstein, who is running for a fifth full term, and indicates that Democratic activists in California have soured on her reputation for pragmatism and deference to bipartisanship as Trump and a Republican-led Congress are attacking Democratic priorities on immigration, healthcare and environmental protections.

WHO recognises 'compulsive sexual behaviour' as mental disorder

The World Health Organization has recognised "compulsive sexual behaviour" as a mental disorder, but said Saturday it remained unclear if it was an addiction on a par with gambling or drug abuse.

The contentious term "sex addiction" has been around for decades but experts disagree over whether the condition exists.

In the latest update of its catalogue of diseases and injuries around the world, the WHO takes a step towards legitimising the concept, by acknowledging "compulsive sexual behaviour disorder", or CSBD, as a mental illness.

But the UN health body stops short of lumping the condition together with addictive behaviours like substance abuse or gambling, insisting more research is needed before describing the disorder as an addiction.

The alliance between the System’s street enforcers and its Narrative enforcers has become clearer than ever in recent weeks as MSM operatives denounce a new bill—sponsored by four Republican white males—that would impose harsh Federal penalties on the use of masks while undertaking political terrorism.

Silencing Diversity in the Name of Diversity

In my latest book, Being in Time – a Post Political Manifesto, I explored different tactics used by the New Left – a loose collective of Frankfurt School graduates -- to destroy political diversity and intellectual exchange. I concluded that the ‘new order’ is maintained by ensuring that so-called ‘correctness’ dominates our vocabulary. We are drowning in jargon, slogans and sound bites designed to suppress authentic thinking and more important, to suppress humane intellectual exchange. As I finished writing the book, I understood that this new language is a well-orchestrated attempt to obliterate our Western Athenian ethos in favor of a new Jerusalemite regime of ‘correctness.’

U.S., North Korea Discuss War Dead as Nuclear Dispute Simmers

U.S. and North Korean officials met Sunday to discuss the return of remains of American soldiers killed almost seven decades ago during the Korean War, with the talks offering a chance to ease tensions between the two sides as they argue over disarmament issues.

The talks were “productive and cooperative and resulted in firm commitments,” Secretary of State Michael Pompeo said in a statement. Working-level meetings between officials from the two countries will begin Monday to coordinate the next steps, including the transfer of remains already collected and the search for an estimated 5,300 Americans, Pompeo said.

Trump and Putin's love-in: Russian strongman says 'Da' I wanted Trump and claims money moved out of Russia illegally went to Hillary Clinton - while U.S. president boasts of his 'brilliant' election campaign

But Trump was having none of it – at a press conference where he demanded someone find Hillary Clinton's deleted emails, pointed to a server associated with a House Democratic staffer, and accepted a soccer ball from Putin after congratulating the Russian team's performance at the World Cup.

'And I have to say if they had it, it would have been out long ago,' Trump interjected, referencing unverified claims in the Steele dossier about his conduct in a Moscow hotel room during the Miss Universe Pageant before he was president.

'Our relationship has never been worse than it is now. However that changed as of about four hours ago,' the president told a packed room of reporters in Helsinki at his summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Revisiting Jimmy Carter’s truth-telling sermon to Americans

Nearly 40 years ago, on July 15, 1979, President Jimmy Carter went on national television to share with millions of Americans his diagnosis of a nation in crisis. “All the legislation in the world,” he proclaimed, “can’t fix what’s wrong with America.” He went on to call upon American citizens to reflect on the meaning and purpose of their lives together.

Can Iran Legally Close the Strait of Hormuz?

If Iran is serious about closing the strait, is the move legal under international law? The simple answer to this question is no.

Based on the international laws of the sea or the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea [PDF], Hormuz is an “international strait” because it is the only gateway between the Persian Gulf and the open sea. In all such straits, all ships have the right of transit and the countries adjacent to the strait must not deny this right of transit and must inform all relevant officials about any danger that might threaten the vessels or planes that travel through the strait. Under international laws and conventions, the right of transit cannot be suspended.
