D.C. BAR OWNER Where Seth Rich Was Last Seen Drops Bombshell: NO EMPLOYEES Of Bar Questioned By DC Police…Never Asked For Surveillance Tapes

The case of the mysterious murder of Seth Rich is heating up. Kim Dot.com is appearing on Sean Hannity’s show tomorrow night after Sean invited him on Twitter, where he claims he will provide proof that Rich leaked over 44K emails and over 17K attachments to Wikileaks.

Last week, Private Investigator Rod Wheeler appeared on Fox5 news in DC with an update in the unsolved murder of DNC IT expert Seth Rich, claiming proof exists on Rich’s laptop proving he was Julian Assange’s source for leaked DNC emails during the 2016 election – an account in direct conflict to the Russian hacking narrative based on a discredited IT firm’s report.

Wheeler walked back his statements the next day, however the fuse was already lit… Weaponized autists on Reddit and 4chan began furiously digging back into the Seth Rich case for clues in the still unsolved murder – and they went deep.

North Korea's Latest Missile Test Brings Us One Step Closer To WWIII (Here's How We Got Here)

As time goes on, North Korea’s nuclear program is making war with the United States more and more likely. As SHTFplan.com's Daniel Lang details, we’re on a terrible path that no one knows how to escape from.

On the one hand, North Korea is clearly led by an unhinged and tyrannical government that can’t be trusted with nuclear weapons. So you can understand why the US is so determined to stop their progress with these weapons. But at the same time, those nuclear weapons could one day guarantee that the leaders of North Korea will remain in power for a long time. Those weapons would make any potential aggressor think twice about trying to invade the bellicose nation, so there’s no way that North Korea is going to abandon its nuclear program.

This possibility is making residents of Oahu, military, or non-military, more than a little nervous.

Seth Rich Plot Thickens: "DC Insider" Speaks Of "Complete Panic" At Highest Levels Of DNC

Last week, Fox News dropped a bombshell report officially confirming, via anonymous FBI sources, what many had suspected for quite some time, that murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich was the WikiLeaks source for leaks which proved that the DNC was intentionally undermining the campaign of Bernie Sanders. In addition to exposing the corruption of the DNC, the leaks cost Debbie Wasserman Shcultz her job as Chairwoman.

Of course, if it's true that WikiLeaks' emails came from a DNC insider it would end the "Russian hacking" narrative that has been perpetuated by Democrats and the mainstream media for the past several months. Moreover, it would corroborate the one confirmation that Julian Assange has offered regarding his source, namely that it was "not a state actor."

Meanwhile, the plot thickened a little more over the weekend when Kim Dotcom confirmed via Twitter that he was working with Seth Rich to get leaked emails to WikiLeaks.

The Shi’ite fighters from Iraq have controversially been bombed by the US Air Force on two separate occasions; this is explained by their blitz offensive targeted an area controlled by US vetted rebels.

In the weeks to come, the SAA – heavily assisted by foreign fighters – hopes to capture the Al-Tanf border crossing. If successful, land trade between Damascus and Baghdad will resume for the first time in years.

With more reinforcements arriving on the M2 highway frontier, pro-government forces have now advanced within 30 kilometers of the Al-Tanf border crossing.

Meanwhile, a unit of Norwegian special forces entered the Al-Tanf region to reinforce US and British troops. However, with the SAA and Iraqi volunteers fixated on retaking the border, coalition forces may be forced to abort mission.

Trump and “Regime Change”: ‘We Will Do Whatever is Necessary’ to ‘Fix’ Venezuela

US President Donald Trump said Thursday he would work with Colombia to “fix” Venezuela, as he slapped Caracas with new sanctions.

The sanctions targeted Venezuela’s chief judge and seven other members of Venezuela’s Supreme Court (TSJ). The sanctions were in retaliation to a controversial TSJ ruling that effectively granted the court with the power to pass legislation without parliamentary approval. The ruling was quickly reversed, but kicked off a wave of opposition violence that has so far left 54 people dead.

The announcement of the new sanctions came after Trump held a joint press conference with Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos. During the conference, the US leader claimed the world hasn’t seen any political crisis as bad as Venezuela’s in “decades”.

“People don’t have enough to eat. There’s great violence. We will do whatever is necessary … to help with fixing that,” he said.

Syrian Prison Executions – Anatomy of a Smear Campaign

The smear campaign against Syria in general – and Bashar al-Assad personally – has been ongoing for years. We’ve seen nothing but horror stories come out of Syria. Allegations of chemical weapons, barrel bombing of civilians, terrible crimes against humanity. We’re seldom presented with evidence, yet the headlines stick in our minds. It’s not what’s true, it’s what people believe, and headlines are great indoctrination tools. Who cares about proof anymore? If the government says it true, it must be true.

The smear machine is again in high gear, with reports of mass executions in a Syria prison accompanied by ghastly headlines such as:

New French President ‘Will Not Recognise Palestine’

Newly elected French President Emmanuel Macron has reiterated that he will not recognise Palestine as a state as it would hinder good relations between Israel and France.

Prior to his election win, Macron said he backs a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and that recognising Palestine would cause instability and he would not risk France’s relationship with Israel to serve the Palestinian agenda. At a political rally Macron said:

Unilateral recognition of Palestine, right now, will undermine stability,

This Number Might Explain Why They Want to Destroy Trump NOW

Anyone who was paying attention during the Obama years – when the infamous, bipartisan Gang of Eight immigration reform bill was on the table – knows full well that neither Republicans nor Democrats ever really wanted to get a hold on America’s disastrous illegal immigration problem. They might have different reasons for wanting to see it continue, but that doesn’t matter all that much. The bottom line is that while Democrats will tell you straight to your face that they want amnesty and (all but) open borders, Republicans will lie and say they want “stronger border defense” while doing nothing, year after year, to stop the flow.

Then came Donald J. Trump, and the ruse was exposed.

Why Wasn’t Barack Obama Impeached for Obstructing Justice?

In the spring of last year, President Obama said in an interview that while Hillary Clinton had not shown great judgement in her use of a private email server, what she had done certainly did not rise to the level of criminal negligence. In fact, as Andrew McCarthy of National Review notes, Obama actually used the word “carelessness” to describe Clinton’s handling of classified material. A few months later, in his grandstanding exoneration speech, FBI Director James Comey just happened to use the term “extremely careless” in categorizing Clinton’s behavior.

Probably just a coincidence, huh?

Kremlin: Sen. John McCain has 'maniacal hatred towards our country'

Sen. John McCain went "way over the line of decency" of decency in his recent attacks on Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, a Kremlin spokesman said Monday.

McCain, R-Ariz., has not minced words in his condemnation of President Donald Trump's May 10 Oval Office meeting with Lavrov and Sergey Kislyak, Russia's ambassador to the United States.

"I do not believe that Mr. Lavrov should be allowed in the Oval Office, and I think it's pretty obvious they turned it into their propaganda advantage," McCain last week told The Arizona Republic.

In a subsequent appearance on "Fox News Sunday," McCain ridiculed Lavrov as "stooge of a thug and a murderer," Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Dmitry Peskov, Putin's spokesman, said McCain is known for his "maniacal hatred towards our country," but suggested the Kremlin will ignore his remarks, according to a report from Russian news agency TASS.

Trump confirms U.S. ties with Bahrain won't face tension

U.S. President Donald Trump confirmed on Sunday that the ties of his country with Bahrain will be stronger and won't face tension after today, Al Arabiya local news reported.

He highlighted that as part of his two-day visit to Riyadh when he met with Bahrain's King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa in the sideline of U.S.-Gulf summit.
"Relations between the two countries are great, although there were some tensions before that won't exist in the current management. We will build long term ties based on common grounds," he said.

The former U.S administration backed the Shiite opposition in Bahrain since the beginning of unrest in 2011, despite Bahrain is one of its alliance.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. President: in supporting the Al-Khalifa monarchy, and its brutal, horrific treatment of peaceful protestors, many of whom were tortured to give "confessions", and jailed by kangaroo courts for long sentences, you have just told the world (though it really didn't need too much telling at this point), that freedom, representative government, and democracy don't really matter to you in global dealings, as long as there is money to be made, or services to be provided.

Bahrain is host to the US Navy's 5th fleet, and that appears to be a deal you don't want to mess with.

Trump Puts US on Sunni Muslim Side of Bitter Sectarian War with Shias

The most important aspect of Mr Trump’s two-day visit to Saudi Arabia is that it took place at all. He chose to go first to the world’s most thorough-going autocracy where his speech will be lauded by the state-controlled media.

Almost all of the 55 Muslim rulers and leaders in the vast hall in Riyadh will have breathed a little easier on hearing Mr Trump’s repeated call “to drive out terrorism”, since they have always described anybody who opposes their authority as “terrorists”.

This will be a green-light to people like Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi to go on imprisoning and torturing Muslim Brotherhood members. American pressure on the ruling Sunni minority in Bahrain to stop persecuting the Shia majority was always tame, but Mr Trump’s praise for the island’s rulers may make the situation even worse.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Again, military conflict against Iran will most probably mean war with Russia, as Russian politicians and military personnel have been publicly very vocal on the notion, that if Iran gets attacked militarily, Russia will come to its aid.

Day after day we’ve all suffered through one anonymously sourced, “shock” story after another from the New York Times and/or The Washington Post with new allegations of the ‘wrongdoing’.

But, new evidence surfacing in the Seth Rich murder investigation may just quash the “Russian hacking” conspiracy theory. According to a new report from Fox News, it was former DNC staffer Seth Rich who supplied 44,000 DNC emails to WikiLeaks and not some random Russian cyber terrorist, as we’ve all been led to believe.

Mattis: Escalation of ISIS War Doesn’t Threaten Civilians

Speaking at the Pentagon, Defense Secretary James Mattis talked up the continued escalation of the ISIS war worldwide, vowing the “annihilate” thousands of ISIS fighters in the Middle East to ensure that they are never able to return to their countries of origin.

At the same time, Mattis downplayed the risk the continued escalation of the war posed to civilians, despite the soaring number of civilian deaths in recent months coinciding with previous escalations, saying that the US would continue its “extraordinary efforts” to keep the civilian death toll low.

In practice, that likely means that the Pentagon will continue to go to almost impossible lengths to publish official death tolls that are far, far lower than the actual figures, Independent groups like Air Wars regularly document civilian deaths from US airstrikes at least 10 times higher than what the Pentagon puts on their official list.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A quick question for Sec Def Mattis; sir, do you believe that any thinking American is believing this utter and complete codswallop for a second?!?

Because, sir, if you do, you are truly, beyond-help delusional.

Thinking Americans understand that the US military presence in Syria is about engineering regime change; and in Iraq, it is about insuring that its leadership is Western-centric; that the oil goes only to countries the US approves of, and that the oil is only sold in American dollars.

Alternative ideas don’t come easily to Americans. It seems that Americans imported colonial hierarchal practices from Europe to cultivate them to their own advantage. Over millennia, Europeans had come to accept the authority of Church, Monarchy or State Principalities to be the places where the ‘rightful-centres’ existed. The ‘rightful-centre’ was always beyond the reach of the masses. Pontiffs and warlords alike had built their power base upon the belief that the common people should accept the fact that the centre of power was somewhere above their heads and that it was the lot of underlings to live the life of fellow travellers.

Trump & 55 Muslim-majority states sign pact pledging 34,000 troops to fight ISIS in Iraq & Syria

The US and Middle Eastern countries have backed a new pact that promises to provide extra troops for defeating Islamic State, singles out Iran for destabilizing the region, and says that Riyadh is to become the heart of the region’s counter-terrorism operations.

Described as the Riyadh Declaration, the document was signed following US President Donald Trump’s visit to the Saudi capital for a summit that brought in Islamic representatives from 55 countries, and vowed “to combat terrorism in all its forms, address its intellectual roots, dry up its sources of funding and to take all necessary measures to prevent and combat terrorist crimes in close cooperation among their states.”

The exact membership of what the communique called the Middle East Strategic Alliance will be decided next year, but putative members have committed to assembling “a reserve force of 34,000 troops to support operations against terrorist organizations in Iraq and Syria when needed.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short translation of the "Riyadh Declaration"; increased war against Syria, by which none of these countries have been invited to assist it in getting rid of jihadists, leading to regime change in Damascus, and ultimately war against Iran.

And the big question I have here, is if things escalate in Syria, and if there is ultimately a war against Iran, what will Russia do, in light of its efforts to defend the Al-Assad government, and has consistently stated that should Iran be attacked militarily, it will come to Iran's aid?!?

I can tell you very clearly, what Putin, Medvedev, and the Russian Duma will NOT do, as a response to such provocations; join hands and sing "Kumbyah"!!

Up to 20% Have Regret; Sex Changes Are Not Effective, say Researchers

The review of more than 100 international medical studies of "post-operative" transsexuals finds up to 20% regret transitioning and no conclusive evidence was found that shows gender reassignment surgery improves the lives of transsexuals, with many people remaining severely distressed and even suicidal after the operation, wrote David Batty in the UK Guardian.

10 Crazy Conspiracy Theories… That turned out to be conspiracy facts…

With nearly the entire mainstream media apparatus at their disposal, the government is a maestro at this practice. As we learned from so-called Operation Mockingbird — a conspiracy theory fact discussed in my first post on the subject, “Conspiracy Theories That Turned Out to Be True,” — hundreds, if not thousands of news organizations have been conscripted into working with the CIA to support pro-government narratives. That was in the 1960s. One can only imagine how vast the network is now. Not to mention the fact that a single proprietary algorithm owned by Google dictates the vast majority of the population’s exposure to a subject.

James Comey Has a History of Not Finding the Clintons Guilty of Anything

Former FBI Director James Comey couldn’t find anything wrong in a long laundry list of egregious activities by Hillary Clinton, stretching the boundaries of believability by claiming she didn’t have intent. It wasn’t the first time Mr. Comey could find no fault in the Clintons’ sketchy past.

It’s reasonable to say the Clintons have a prosecutor they can count on in James Comey.

Mount Everest's Hillary Step collapses, mountaineers confirm

A famous feature near the summit of Mount Everest, known as the Hillary Step, has collapsed, potentially making the world's highest peak even more dangerous for climbers.

Last year, pictures appeared to show a change in shape to the 12-metre rocky outcrop, named after Sir Edmund Hillary, the first person to scale the mountain.

It is thought to have been destroyed in Nepal's 2015 earthquake, but snow coverage made the news hard to confirm.

British mountaineer Tim Mosedale confirmed the collapse after he reached the summit this week.

"It's official — The Hillary Step is no more," he said in a Facebook post.

Shocking Admission From NY Bankruptcy Judge: "Chapter 11, 15 Filings Have Exploded"

A stunning soundbite was captured by a Bloomberg reporter during last week's event at the American Bankruptcy Institute. According to judges speaking at an ABI conference Thursday in Manhattan, the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York is seeing a sharp rise in cases this year, with Chapter 11 and Chapter 15 filings outpacing national averages.

"Chapter 11s and Chapter 15s have exploded" said U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Shelley Chapman, speaking at American Bankruptcy Institute event, cited by Bloomberg reporter Tiffany Kary.

The numbers for the bankruptcy court which serves Manhattan are, frankly, horrifying: Chapter 11s have tripled in the first quarter of the year, while Chapter 15s for companies seeking U.S. aid for a reorganization in a foreign court have increased sevenfold, Chapman added.

Commodities Bust Hits Farm Lenders, Delinquencies Surge 225%

Just as the deflating Farmland bubble leaves its marks.

When it comes to agricultural debt, the numbers aren’t huge enough to take down the global financial system. But this shows how much pain the commodities rout is producing in the farm belt just when the farmland asset bubble that took three decades to create is deflating, and what specialized lenders and the agricultural enterprises they serve – some of them quite large – are currently struggling with in terms of delinquencies.

North Korea's Kim Approves New Ballistic Missile "Deployment For Combat"

Just hours after today's second consecutive successful launch of a North Korean ballistic missile in one week, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un approved "the deployment of the new intermediate-range ballistic missile for combat use" as the country succeeded in test-firing it, Pyongyang's state media said Monday, cited by Yonhap. KCNA also redundantly added that Kim personally observed the launch of the new ground-to-ground Pukguksong-2 missile, and approved the deployment of the Pukguksong-2 for action, calling it a "successful strategic weapon," the KCNA said... as if there may have been something more important for Kim to do during that time.

"This type of missile should be rapidly mass-produced in a serial way" to arm the strategic force of the Korean People's Army, Kim was quoted as saying by the report.

State of emergency is declared on Greek island battling a plague of locusts on a Biblical scale!

A tiny Greek island has declared a state of emergency after being plagued by a swarm of locusts. Villagers and volunteers have been trying to spray pesticides all over the sleepy port island of Agios Efstratios in an attempt to fix the problem.

But they have only had limited success and declared a state of emergency after the rampant pests ate much of the islands vegetation - leaving livestock starving.

Students from a university in Athens have arrived to try and help the 200 residents to get rid of the swarm using bug spray but have been hampered by the Aegean island's rocky terrain.

KIM Jong-un has vowed to increase North Korea's military might following the successful deployment of a new-intermediate range ballistic missile on Sunday.

KIM Jong-un has vowed to increase North Korea's military might following the successful deployment of a new-intermediate range ballistic missile on Sunday.

After watching the launch of the new Pukguksong-2 missile, the North Korean dictator was reportedly satisfied with its accuracy and branded it a “successful strategic weapon”, according to state-run media outlet KCNA.

After the second missile launch in less than a week, KCNA reported: "Saying with pride that the missile's rate of hits is very accurate and Pukguksong-2 is a successful strategic weapon, [Kim Jong-un] approved the deployment of this weapon system for action.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

to President Donald Trump; China's President Xi Jinping; Japan's Prime Minister Abe; gentlemen, a word please.

As much a pain as North Korea's Kim Jung Un may be to deal with, the only resolution of the issue of North Korean missiles is through negotiation, and right the heck now, thank you very much!!

What should be happening is the establishment of a peace accord for North Korea, with iron-clad promises of free trade, and lack of any restrictions against its economy, with the quid pro quo of North Korea stopping its nuclear weapons program when this takes effect.

And a short memo to Secretary of State Tillerson, who has reiterated that only when North Korea ends its nuclear weapons program, will the US be ready to negotiate; Mr. Tillerson, Kim Jung Un understands that his only possible ploy for preventing an invasion of his country is the development of a nuclear weapon as a deterrent.

He has seen what has happened to countries which do not have this, and is trying to insure that North Korea doesn't become yet another victim of "regime change."

The time for serious negotiations is now: the potential for horrific damage from an attack against North Korea would be horrific for the region as a whole.

Weiner's Pension Worth a Whopping $1.2 Million

With a career in tatters and a pregnant wife, most people would be facing a financial crisis, but Anthony Weiner still has his pension to fall back on — and it’s a pension the rest of America would love.

Weiner, pension, 1.2 millionAfter just 12 years in Congress, Weiner’s benefits add up to $1.2 million, reports The Wall Street Journal, and he doesn’t have to worry if the Stock Market keeps dropping.

Weiner was on the standard congressional salary of $174,000 before announcing his resignation on Thursday, three weeks into his humiliating Twitter sexting scandal. He was covered under the Federal Employee Retirement System, to which he contributed less than 1 percent of his pay.

Israeli Justice Minister Slams White House Map of Israel for Not Including West Bank

With President Trump’s visit already riling several other members of Israel’s far-right government related to whether the Western Wall, which Israel captured militarily in 1967, is occupied, Israeli Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked found a new reason to be outraged, the map of Israel that the White House has been circulating ahead of Trump’s trip.

The White House map is accurate, and that’s the problem from Shaked’s perspective, as she was expecting the White House map to recognize all of the occupied territories, every scrap of the West Bank and the Golan Heights, as Israeli territory.

House Seeks Security Upgrades at Members' Offices Back Home

The U.S. House's Sergeant-at-Arms is seeking at least $2 million to increase security at Congress members' offices in their home districts, the News4 I-Team has learned.

The security upgrades include panic buttons for offices that don't already have them and video surveillance equipment.

Members of Congress have made an increasing number of requests to improve home-office security, Sergeant at Arms Paul Irving said recently. He's seeking the additional money from the House Appropriations Committee.
He didn't specify the nature of any threats against members.

On Capitol Hill, members of Congress are protected by hundreds of armed U.S. Capitol Police. But back home, their offices are often in open, public places such as strip malls.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

MY GOODNESS!

Do you think House members have finally realised that the general public they allegedly represent are not the "sheeple" from yesteyear, but people who have actually realised that it only the corporations, which purchase legislators, the one percenters, and the American Deep State, which is represented by Congress, and that They, the People, have become irrelevant?!?

And they have seen this because, no matter which side of the political aisle they are on, when they vote, absolutely nothing changes?!?

The US government is groaning under unsustainable and unpayable debt; wars continue; the regime changes continue; and the basic routine of invade; plunder; regime change, and create chaos in countries where the US expropriates resources to which it has utterly no moral right, never changes?!?

And in this realisation, they are perhaps more than a bit peeved?!?

Jared Kushner, Charged With Making ‘Ultimate Deal,’ Has Ties In Israel

Despite having no experience, Kushner has been charged with perhaps the most implausible task related to the president’s first overseas visit: striking a deal between the Israelis and the Palestinians.

Kushner has organized much of the president’s first overseas trip, including the crafting of the $110 billion defense deal with the Saudis. But compared to Saudi Arabia, where the president was lauded with a multi-story self portrait and a gold medal, the scene in Israel is decidedly tenser, after reports said that Trump voluntarily offered up Israeli intelligence to the Russians earlier this month.

Kushner, an Orthodox Jew, has not helped inspire confidence in his impartiality, having failed to disclose multiple professional ties with Israel that may compromise his position as an impartial broker.

Right-wing Christians have some insane theories about why the Trump presidency is imploding

In an interview with Steve Strang of Charisma News on Thursday, Bakker warned of an assassination attempt against Trump, given that “the apocalypse has already begun.”

“There’s going to be an attempt on our president’s life very soon,” he stated. “The world is marching in the streets against our president, and it is a war.”

“This is the first horse of the apocalypse,” Bakker promised. “The apocalypse has already begun.”

According to Bakker, Trump’s opposition is “the spirit of the Antichrist,” fighting back against God’s miracle: the election of Trump. The strongest indicator of end times for Bakker was the cancellation of ABC’s “Last Man Standing” last week. The show starred Tim Allen, an anomalyous Trump supporter in Hollywood. Conservatives have blamed Allen’s political leanings for the show’s cancellation, despite offering no evidence to support their claims.

Russians Are Laughing at the U.S., Not Just at Trump

This week, however, the Russian jokes at the expense of the U.S. got positively unpleasant. First, President Vladimir Putin offered to provide the U.S. Congress with a recording of Lavrov's conversation with Trump, in which the U.S. president allegedly revealed highly classified information (the word Putin used, zapis, cannot really be translated as "transcript", as the Kremlin later claimed). The suggestion, of course, was sheer mockery -- it's impossible to imagine the Congress making such a request of Putin, and U.S. legislators tried to answer Putin in kind, Senator Marco Rubio suggesting that if Putin sent the information by email, he "wouldn't click on the attachment."

Tillerson calls on Rouhani to stop Iran’s ballistic missile tests

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has called on Iranian President Hassan Rouhani to end the country’s ballistic missile tests in what is Washington’s first reaction to his re-election.

Tillerson made the remarks during a joint news conference with his Saudi counterpart on Saturday following Rouhani’s landslide election victory and winning a second term in office through presidential polls held on Friday.

He repeated a Western accusation that Iran supports terrorism, saying, "What I would hope, is that Rouhani... use that (new) term to begin a process of dismantling Iran's network of terrorism, dismantling its financing of the terrorist network, dismantling the manning and the logistics and everything that they provide to these destabilizing forces that exist in this region."

Trump's Budget Will Slash $1.7 Trillion In Entitlements, Cut Food Stamps By 25%

Here are some of the highlights from the latest batch of trial balloons:

The budget will slash $1.7 trillion in spending on entitlement programs, according to Bloomberg.

Trump’s budget will include a massive nearly $200 billion cut to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, the modern version of food stamps, over the next 10 years – what amounts to a 25% reduction, according to The Washington Post.

The food stamp cuts are part of a broader $274 billion welfare-reform effort, according to a report by The Associated Press.

The budget calls for about $800 billion in cuts to Medicaid for fiscal year 2018, WaPo reported.

The budget also calls for $2.6 billion in border security spending, $1.6 billion of which will be earmarked for Trump’s proposed wall along the U.S.’s southern border.

The budget is also expected to propose major domestic discretionary spending cuts - an earlier version of the budget called for $54 billion in such cuts next year alone.

THE TENS OF MILLIONS OF FORGOTTEN AMERICANS THAT THE U.S. ECONOMY HAS LEFT BEHIND

The evidence that the middle class in America is dying continues to mount. As you will see below, nearly half the country would be unable “to cover an unexpected $400 expense”, and about two-thirds of the population lives paycheck to paycheck at least part of the time. Of course the economy has not been doing that well overall in recent years. Barack Obama was the only president in all of U.S. history not to have a single year when the economy grew by at least 3 percent, and U.S. GDP growth during the first quarter of 2017 was an anemic 0.7 percent. During the Obama era, it is true that wealthy enclaves in New York, northern California and Washington D.C. did thrive, but meanwhile most of the rest of the country has been left behind.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These are not the statistics indicating that the US economy is rebounding, except, perhaps, for the one percenters; these are the statistics of an American economy in absolute, profound, and intense decline.

Hanford official: Tunnel could collapse again — Less than a week after a tunnel collapse at Hanford’s PUREX site, Senator Cantwell visited the nuclear site Saturday, concerned about the recent collapse and the possibility of more. “There is still a potential that we could have an additional collapse of that tunnel,” said Doug Shoop, manager at the Department of Energy Richland Operations Office… “What we will be doing, weather permitting, will be putting a very large cover over the top of that tunnel number one,” said Shoop. That cover meant to keep radioactive particles in the dirt from flying into the air in the event of another collapse.

THERE IS SOMETHING DEEPLY WRONG WITH WHAT YOU DO WHEN EVEN SATAN FEELS THE NEED TO DISTANCE HIMSELF FROM YOU:

This includes the Taliban in Afghanistan and Pakistan, the culprits of 9/11, al-Qaeda, ISIS and whatever may be their next incarnation.

The U.S. knows this. Trump knows this. An email Hillary Clinton sent to her election campaign manager John Podesta correctly noted:

[...] the governments of Qatar and Saudi Arabia, [..] are providing clandestine financial and logistic support to ISIL and other radical Sunni groups in the region.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This weapons deal was a very, very bad idea, and one which will most likely see US/Russian military conflict in both Syria and Iran, ultimately.

FRINGE NEOCON WROTE TRUMP’S SAUDI SPEECH

If there is any doubt Trump was captured early on by the neocons, one only need to look at the speech he delivered in Saudi Arabia.

The 30 minute speech was written by Senior Policy Adviser Stephen Miller, an ally of former Breitbart executive Stephen Bannon and former Breitbart writer Julia Hahn.

Miller organized and promoted “Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week” while a student at Duke University. He worked with the notorious neocon firebrand David Horowitz at the time. Josefin Dolton writes:

As a college student, Miller wrote a biweekly column for the The Duke Chronicle, addressing such topics as terrorism, US foreign policy and political correctness. Defending President George W. Bush’s war in Iraq, Miller wrote that “Islamic terrorists have declared holy war on the United States. They have declared a death sentence on every man, woman and child living in this country.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why am I not surprised at this?!?

It has been the Neocon/Israeli/American Deep State's collective desire, ever since the 1979 Iranian revolution, to invade and balkanise this country, for its "temerity" in having overthrown the US-imposed, brutal dictator, the Shah.

Since that time, Iran has been making steady economic and social progress, even though I profoundly disagree with their not allowing women to major in some specific areas in college.

Universities in Iran Put Limits on Women's Options

It's interesting that the US has embraced its former enemy, Vietnam, as a major trading partner, but not Iran; and the primary reason for that is that Israel considers it their "existential threat" in the region, and wants it destroyed, by any means necessary.

What is that phrase heard so frequently in the Middle East, "The enemy of my enemy is my friend"?!?

This is why Israel is not complaining too strenuously about the huge military aid package President Trump just approved for Saudi Arabia, because it sees Saudi Arabia as a US proxy to take down Iran militarily.

US STRIKE ON SYRIAN FORCES: THE SCRAMBLE FOR POST-ISLAMIC STATE SYRIA

The tactical scope of the attack was relatively limited, but strategically, the stakes particularly along Syria's territorial boundaries have been raised significantly.

Regarding the attack, US geopolitical analysts appear unanimous regarding the rhyme and reason behind it.

Foreign Policy magazine in a recent article claimed that the strike "showed American commanders are willing to use force to maintain de facto safe zones in the country’s east." The article also attempts to claim these "safe zones" are being used to stand up forces to fight the Islamic State.

In reality, the Islamic State was a creation of the US and its regional allies and meant specifically to "isolate the Syrian regime," according to a 2012 US Defense Intelligence Agency report.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The question reverberating in my head, is how long before US and Russian forces actually start to engage, because their objectives in Syria are polar opposites?!?

The US wants "regime change" in Damascus, to make it easier to ultimately invade Iran, but Russia wants to defend and support the government of Bashar al-Assad; these two objectives are completely mutually exclusive.

It is not, at this point, a question of if this is going to happen; only, when it is going to happen.

US stirring up ‘Iranophobia’ to boost arms sales to Arab nations – Tehran

US President Donald Trump has deliberately accused Tehran of sponsoring extremist groups in the Middle East in order to stir up “Iranophobia” and boost American arms sales in the region, Iran’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

“Once again, by his repetitive and baseless claims about Iran, the American president... tried to encourage the countries of the [Middle East] region to purchase more arms by spreading Iranophobia,” Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi said a day after Trump sealed a massive arms deal with Iran’s arch-rival, Saudi Arabia, worth $110 billion.

The $20 billion in Saudi money is part of a larger effort by Blackstone to invest stateside in toll roads, airports and other public works.

BAE TO SETTLE BRIBERY CASES FOR MORE THAN $400 MILLION

Britain’s BAE Systems PLC reached settlements totaling almost $500 million with the U.S. Justice Department and the U.K. Serious Fraud Office to resolve longstanding corruption allegations that have dogged one of the world’s biggest defense contractors.

Under the agreements, London-based BAE will plead guilty to charges in both countries, relating to transactions that took place before 2002. The investigations examined whether BAE had made illegal payments to officials in various countries to secure lucrative contracts. The accusations have cast a shadow over BAE’s business, even as it has expanded world-wide.

“It allows us to draw a very heavy line under the legacy of very historical issues,” said BAE Chairman Dick Olver. “We’re pleased to see the uncertainty removed.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And yet, demonstrating that the US has an absolutely two-tiered legal system, no one who actually did the bribing goes to prison.

The Uber-rich, particularly if they are weapons-manufacturing-centric, simply get off with a financial slap on the wrist; the company's annual income is roughly around one billion (or more).

DNC AFFILIATES INCREASE INVOLVEMENT IN SETH RICH CASE AFTER WHEELER CLAIMS

Since Fox 5 DC's report, a number of individuals speaking on behalf of the Rich family have blasted Fox News and Rod Wheeler for speaking out on the case. Rich family spokesman Brad Bauman insisted that anyone who continued to push the story either had a "transparent political agenda," or were a sociopath. But an August 2016 tweet from Wikileaks revealed that Bauman is a crisis public relations consultant working with the Pastorum Group. A media release from the Pastorum Group reveals that Bauman previously worked for the DNC and the Service Employees International Union (SEIU).

The SEIU has previously been reported by the Wall Street Journal as a "top spender" for the Democrats, openly endorsed Hillary Clinton in 2016 and actively assisted in her campaign. It has been widely criticized by some groups for the involvement of union members in crimes including embezzlement, criminal conspiracy, perjury and identity theft.

There is a marvelous line from the TV show "Elementary", (and I am paraphrasing) in which the Sherlock Holmes character describes his father as "a man with assassins on speed-dial"; in the case of the Clinton Cartel, however, this is perhaps more than a valid assessment.

SPECIAL: Jared Kushner Working for Israel to Enable Saudi Arabian Nuclear Attack Against Iran UPDATE 2: Gulf NATO to Wage War on Iran & Syria

ROBERT STEELE: I have learned from a person I trust that Jared Kushner is being used by Israel to rapidly enable Saudi Arabian nuclear attack capability against Iran. In his recent call to the Lockheed CEO asking for a 12% discount (it should have been 50%) on Lockheed’s missile defense system, Kushner was overheard discussing the arming of the Saudis with nuclear missiles with what sounded like an Israeli intelligence officer. See the Updates. Donald Trump is becoming impeachable by We the People.

My source tells me that the Israeli’s believe they can incite a limited nuclear war between Saudi Arabia and Iran, and that the nuclearization of Saudi Arabia will discourage Russia from deepening its support of Syria while also serving as a threat against Iran.

GREEK AUTHORITIES TO LAUNCH MASS CONFISCATION OF SAFE DEPOSIT BOXES, SECURITIES, HOMES IN TAX-EVASION CRACKDOWN

Last week, the Greek parliament once again approved more austerity to unlock withheld Greek bailout funds in Brussels: a symbolic move, which has little impact without any actual follow through, like for example, actually imposing austerity. And while Greeks have been very good in the former (i.e. promises), they have been severely lacking in the latter (i.e. delivery).

That may be changing. According to Kathimerini, Greek Finance Ministry inspectors are about to start seeking out the owners of all local undeclared properties, while the law will be amended to allow for financial products and the content of safe deposit boxes to be confiscated electronically. The plan for the identification of taxpayers who have “forgotten” to declare their properties to the tax authorities is expected to be ready by year-end, according to the timetable of the Independent Authority for Public Revenue.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is instructive to watch what is going on with the governments of Greece and Venezuela, as this is precisely how the US government will be looting the property and assets of its citizens when the financial excrement hits the ventilation system once the US economy has crashed.

New North Korean missile test smaller than recent launches, White House says

North Korea's latest test launch Sunday was a medium-range ballistic missile that has a shorter range than others fired by the communist regime in recent months, the White House said.

The South Korean military said the projectile was launched Sunday afternoon Korean time from the vicinity of Pukchang, an area north of the capital Pyongyang most notable for its hard-labor camp for political prisoners.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Rather gratuitous mention of the prison camp, which has absolutely nothing to do with the missile test.

HERE’S WHY SAUDI ARABIA AND ISRAEL ARE ALLIES IN ALL BUT NAME

Those who claim that Israel is opposed to Donald Trump’s now openly warm relations with Saudi Arabia are missing the actual point. On the surface, many assume that Israel and Saudi Arabia have poor relations. Neither country has diplomatic relations with one another, one is a self-styled Jewish state while the other is a Wahhabi Sunni monarchy.

But they both have the same regional goals, they both have the same enemies and both are intellectual anachronisms in a 20th century that has seen the fall of multiple monarchies, the end of traditional European colonialism and the fall of segregated regimes in Africa (Apartheid South Africa and UDI Rhodesia for example).

Both countries also seek to destroy Iran. Iran unlike Saudi Arabia and Israel, practices an ethical foreign policy. Far from wanting to export its Islamic Revolution, Iran has been a staunch ally to secular Syria and has been at the forefront of the fight against Salafist terrorism like ISIS and al-Qaeda.

WikiLeaks says the CIA’s Athena malware can be used to spy on Windows XP through to Windows 10 computers.

The latest file revealed in WikiLeaks’ Vault 7 catalog of CIA hacking toolkit is Athena, a surveillance tool apparently designed to capture communications from Windows XP to Windows 10 machines.

Details of the Athena malware are available in a document allegedly created by the CIA in November 2015. The malware is said to have been made in conjunction with US cybersecurity firm Siege Technologies, which was acquired by Nehemiah Security late last year.

Tech companies will be offered additional technical details to help fix flaws, said Julian Assange.

TALKING TACTICS, LACKING STRATEGY - THE GENERALS ON SYRIA AND IRAQ

On Friday Secretary of Defense [General ret.] Mattis, General Dunford and Special Envoy McGurk on the Campaign to Defeat ISIS held a press briefing. A transcript is available.

My first thought after reading its was: "These people live in a different world. They have no idea how the real word works on the ground. What real people think, say, and are likely to do." There was no strategic thought visible. Presented were only some misguided tactical ideas.

One purpose of the briefing was obviously to souse the Saudis in preparation of Trumps weapons sales campaign there. There was no mention at all of any (Saudi financed) Jihadis in Syria or elsewhere besides ISIS. Questions about Kurdish or Iraqi paramilitary groups were answered with trash talk about Iran.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One might think think, with all the blood and money already spent, there would be some grand, strategic plan the US military has come up with to counter the growth of ISIS in Iraq and Syria (where the US government has not been invited, thank you very much); unfortunately, there appear to be snippets of conflicting ideas about what should be done; what can, reasonably be done; and a general unwillingness to confess that ISIS is very much a Frankenstein-like creature created by elements of the US government.

THE FOURTH TURNING: Destruction Coming To America

Squawker contributor Michael Hart joins me to discuss the destruction that is coming to America. According to Hart, A crisis is not coming. It is already here, and it will be as defining a moment in the history of the United States as the Great Depression, World War II, or the American Civil War — that is, if you believe in an interesting theory laid out in a book called “The Fourth Turning: What Cycles of History Tell Us About America’s Next Rendezvous With Destiny.”
