#Its your duty to offend!

#ItsOKToBeOffensive In this current climate of overly offended snowflakes it’s becoming more and more of a right if not a duty to be offensive in the interest of pursuing truth! There is no such thing as hate speech and it becomes an incredibly slippery slope into tyranny when we allow the policing of our language in the interest of being politically correct. In this video Dan Dicks of Press For Truth goes over three recent articles that show just how out of hand things are getting and more importantly how one should respond to the question is it ok to be offensive?

SUPER INJUNCTION SILENCES NEWS ABOUT VATICAN OFFICIAL'S CHILD MOLESTATION CONVICTION, AND THAT'S BULLSHIT

George Pell, the Vatican's CFO and often called the "3rd most powerful person in the Vatican" was convicted on all charges that he sexually molested choir boys in Australia in the 1990s. However, the press is barred from reporting on it based on one of those gag orders. The Herald Sun in Australia did post a brilliant, Streisand Effect-inducing front page display about how it was being censored from publishing an important story:

Front page of Thursday's edition of Australia's Herald Sun: "CENSORED"

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Pope Francis, you and I have never met; but unless you want the Catholic Church to ultimately get sued out of existence, from the huge numbers of cases like this ready to break, you have got to acknowledge that there is an institutional cultural illness in the Church, which has to be rooted out like a cancer.

Priests should NEVER believe that their positions in the hierarchy EVER give them the right to abuse children, period, end of discussion.

Now, if you know your church's history, you know that there was a time when priests could marry, as stated in the following: The Church was a thousand years old before it definitively took a stand in favor of celibacy in the twelfth century at the Second Lateran Council held in 1139, when a rule was approved forbidding priests to marry. In 1563, the Council of Trent reaffirmed the tradition of celibacy.

Your Holiness, I would like to politely point out that since that time, this policy has not worked out very well, either for the priests who were doing the abusing, or the children abused; in fact, one could, reasonably, characterise this policy as a multi-generational epic fail.

The big difference, in the 21st century, is that those children who were abused now have a voice against those they accuse of doing this foul deed, in a court of law.

But if we are going to stop this practice, for future generations, I would suggest that the Church only recruit future priests from men who are married, and have happy, thriving, emotionally healthy wives and kids. Start elevating women in your communities, and give them voices which they still do not have, even in this part of the 21st century.

You are welcome, Pope Francis!!

VUCIC: Behind the decision to form the "army of Kosovo" are America, Britain and Germany

In an extraordinary speech, the President of Serbia said that after many years of threats, the officially formed army of the so-called Kosovo was illegal

Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said that after the decision to form the so-called Kosovo army, the United States, Great Britain and Germany are standing.

"After many years of threats, today it is officially formed by the so-called" Kosovo Army, illegally. Everything that the Albanians did, they did contrary to international law, and their own legal act to the constitution of Kosovo.

They showed that they never care about respecting rights and justice, but only naked forces, attacking Serbs and Serbia. Serbia wanted peace, invested energy to preserve peace and stability. It was not easy. We accepted the Brussels Agreement in 2013, in order to show how ready we are for reasonable behavior, "Vucic said.

“As a country, we need to stop pretending that the same doors open for everyone, because they don’t,” Warren said.

“I’m not a person of color,” she added. “And I haven’t lived your life or experienced anything like the subtle prejudice, or more overt harm, that you may have experienced just because of the color of your skin.”

FBI Disobeys Judge; Submits Ham-Handed "302" Summary Of Flynn Interview From Six Months Later

Days before retired Army Lt. Gen Michael Flynn was set to be sentenced, Judge Emmet G. Sullivan ordered the Justice Department to produce interview records from their meeting with the former National Security Adviser Mike Flynn amid a filing by Flynn's legal team suggesting that he was pressured or tricked into lying by the FBI.

Flynn pleaded guilty to one count of lying about his contacts with then-Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak, wiretapped phone calls of which the FBI had seen transcripts. After FBI agents interviewed Flynn, they would have written up a summary of the meeting in a report known as a "302," which is used by FBI agents to "report or summarize the interviews they conduct" with witnesses or suspects, and are typically filed within days of the interview.

"Inclusive" Hillary Tells Americans: "If You Don't Support Democrats, Go Somewhere Else"

Hillary Clinton has a message for Bernie Bros, Democratic Socialists and other constituencies of the "Dirtbag Left".

If you have a problem with the Democrats' agenda (which, as Tucker Carlson explained in an interview last week, has shifted away from empowering "working class" Americans to favoring globalism, militarism and big business) then go vote for somebody else.

Demonstrating that she clearly hasn't moved on from the embarrassment she suffered at the hands of Bernie Sanders, who nearly defeated her in the 2016 Democratic Primary after riding a wave of support for his socialist agenda (something that polls suggest is becoming increasingly popular with young Americans), Clinton lashed out during a recent interview at "progressives" who won't stop attacking Democrats from the left.

Researcher on Turkey Creating Black Sea Naval Base: Logical Policy Continuation

In an interview with Sputnik, Turkish and Russian experts have shared their views about the reasons for Ankara's decision to build a new naval base on the Black Sea coast in the Trabzon province, north-east of the country, and how it might affect the balance of forces in the Black Sea region.

The Turkish Ministry of National Defence has begun the construction of a naval base on the Black Sea coast in the Trabzon province, north-east of the country. It is noted that 400 military and 200 civilian specialists will work on the base.

The Turkish Parliament Deputy from the ruling Justice and Development Party (AK Parti, AKP) from Trabzon, Salih Cora, noted that the Turkish Navy currently has a total of eight bases in the four seas around Turkey. The ninth Turkish naval base, which will be built in the area of Sürmene, Trabzon province in the port of Çamburnu, will provide logistics for the main components of the Turkish fleet: frigates, submarines, and military boats.

US-backed Kurdish militants slam Turkish threats as 'declaration of war'

The so-called Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), a US-backed coalition of mainly Kurdish militants that maintains a grip on northeastern Syria, together with its component, the People’s Protection Units (YPG), have censured Turkish threats of a new operation in the crisis-hit Arab country as a “declaration of war”, calling on world powers to stop the assault.

“All the forces in north and east Syria...are asked to agree on strategies to confront this aggression,” they said in a statement released on Friday.

Syrian Kurdish militant groups have vowed to fight “to the death” in the event of a new Turkish operation in northeastern Syria.

Trump faces pushback after saying he may intervene in arrest of Huawei executive

U.S. President Donald Trump is facing pushback for saying on Tuesday that he might intervene in a legal case involving the chief financial official of Chinese telco giant Huawei Technologies — if such a move would help Washington secure a trade deal with Beijing.

Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland on Wednesday warned the U.S. not to politicize extradition cases, saying that the legal process should not be hijacked for political purposes.

“Our extradition partners should not seek to politicize the extradition process or use it for ends other than the pursuit of justice and following the rule of law,” she said when asked about Trump’s interview with Reuters where he reportedly said he would intervene in the case if it helped secure a trade deal with Beijing.

Scrap comedy 'safe spaces'. Satire keeps us honest

This week, the Russian-born comedian Konstantin Kisin has been at the centre of a vaguely heated Twitter spat. Admittedly that might have passed you by if you aren’t fully absorbed in the netherworld of vaguely heated Twitter spats, but thankfully it’s been a quiet news week, so I’ve managed to stay abreast of things.

The flare-up related to an unpaid charity gig organised by a student society of a London university that Kisin had been asked to perform at, in particular a “behavioural agreement form” that he was asked to sign beforehand. This stipulated that certain topics and approaches were off limits, including sexism, racism and homophobia, as well as anti-religious and anti-atheist material.

FEDS SPENT $1.5 BILLION ON GUNS, AMMO, TACTICAL GEAR SINCE 2010

The Government Accountability Office on Thursday released a report on recent purchases of firearms, ammunition and tactical equipment by federal law enforcement agencies.

The 86-page report focused on the weapons acquired by 20 diverse federal agencies ranging from the Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Inspector General to the FBI. What it found were that the agencies reported spending at least $38.8 million on firearms, $325.9 million on ammunition, and $1.14 billion on tactical equipment in the past eight years.

When it came to firearms, GAO found that semi-auto handguns were king among the guns bought by 18 reporting agencies, accounting for 69 percent of the 44,551 weapons purchased. The biggest single buyer was ATF, which acquired at least 8,500 firearms — mostly in large buys in 2012 and 2017 — while the smallest purchases were made by the Social Security’s OIG, who have bought 311 new guns for their 270 agents since 2010.

In America's hidden war in Syria, troops face peril on many fronts

This ruined, fearful city was once the Islamic State's capital, the showcase of its caliphate and a magnet for foreign fighters from around the globe.

Now it lies at the heart of the United States' newest commitment to a Middle East war.

The commitment is small, a few thousand troops who were first sent to Syria three years ago to help the Syrian Kurds fight the Islamic State. President Donald Trump indicated in March that the troops would be brought home once the battle is won, and the latest military push to eject the group from its final pocket of territory recently got underway.

In September, however, the administration switched course, saying the troops will stay in Syria pending an overall settlement to the Syrian war and with a new mission: to act as a bulwark against Iran's expanding influence.

Robert Mueller Filing Confirms Serious Flaws in General Michael Flynn Guilty Plea

What really counts is two documents that Sullivan ordered the FBI to cough up. Exhibit A and Exhibit B raise serious questions. Both are heavily redacted, but the context of the blacked-out sections suggests that there is “no there there.”

Exhibit A is a very superficial January 24, 2017, memo to the file from when Peter Strzok and another, unnamed FBI agent interviewed Trump’s incoming National Security Adviser Flynn. The interview was at the direction of Andrew McCabe. It is reported that McCabe wrote Exhibit A. Both Strzok and McCabe are Trump haters and coup plotters as demonstrated by their text messages and emails. McCabe’s wife took over $700,000 from Friends of Hillary to run as a Democrat in Virginia for the State Senate.

IRAQ SUMMONS TURKISH ENVOY OVER AIR STRIKES

Iraq’s foreign ministry on Friday summoned Turkey’s ambassador in Baghdad to protest over what it called repeated airspace violations, after Turkish warplanes earlier carried out strikes against Kurdish militants in northern Iraq, Reuters reports.

Hours earlier, the Turkish military said on Twitter it had killed eight militants from the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) in air strikes targeting the Zap, Hakurk and Haftanin regions of northern Iraq.

Turkey has regularly carried out air strikes on PKK bases in northern Iraq, as President Tayyip Erdogan pursues his stated aim of ending the militant group’s presence near Turkey’s borders. Ankara has also threatened to launch a ground offensive in northern Iraq.

But Iraq’s foreign ministry said the air strikes were unacceptable “on all levels” and violated its sovereignty and the security of its citizens.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to wonder; at what point is the US military, which is still sovereign in Iraq, because its military is in such lousy shape, post-Saddam Hussein, tell Turkey that it has had enough, and to stop running raids like this.

And after the US military has said "no mas", what is it , the Pentagon, White House, and State Department going to actually do to stop this?!?

This is made all the more complicated by the reality that both the US and Turkey are NATO members.

KEANU REEVES HAS BEEN RUNNING A SECRET CANCER FOUNDATION TO FUND CHILDREN'S HOSPITALS

The Matrix movie series was one of the most revolutionary works of art to ever come out of Hollywood. Its pro-humanity, anti-authoritarian message instantly made it a classic and it has since become the subject of internet memes and (red pill) movements alike. At the center of this silver-screen revolution is Keanu Reeves whose real-life heroism makes his role as Neo that much more incredible.

It is no secret that Keanu Reeves is Hollywood’s biggest low-key real-life hero, but did you know that he also secretly funds children’s hospitals? We didn’t, and most people probably wouldn’t either as the upcoming star of the sci-fi thriller Replicas is not exactly boastful of his contributions to society—unlike many other Hollywood celebrities.

THE GOVERNMENT’S BIOTERROR-RESPONSE WEBSITE MAY BE LEAKING SENSITIVE DATA

The U.S. government’s chief tool to coordinate responses to bioterror events has for years suffered from big security problems, according to Homeland Security Department inspectors and a former employee.

For more than 15 years, the United State’s first line of defense against a major biological incident has been a program called BioWatch. Its sensors, mounted (600 in more than 30 cities across the U.S.), works like canaries in a coal mine. If a terrorist released, say, a deadly aerosolized biological toxin into Grand Central Terminal, sensors would pick up the toxin. Health care workers collect samples from the sensors and bring them to BioWatch labs every day.

SCIENTISTS WILL BEGIN GEOENGINEERING EXPERIMENT AND TRY TO BLOCK THE SUN

Scientists have decided to publicly attempt a geoengineering experiment. The researchers from Harvard University are going to attempt to use particles to block out the sun in an attempt to save humanity from global warming, and cool the planet.

According to Popular Mechanics, this incredibly bad-sounding idea seems like it stemmed from an actual event. In 1991, the volcano Mount Pinatubo erupted in the Philippines, sending millions of tons of ash and sulfur dioxide into the atmosphere. This layer of particulates actually lowered global temperatures by almost a full degree Fahrenheit for the following two years.

Researchers speculated that by filling the atmosphere with a similar level of particulates that were shot into the sky during the 1991 eruption, while skipping the lava and explosions, they might be able to reduce global temperatures enough to halt or delay some of the more severe consequences of “climate change.”

Webmaster's Commentary:

PAUL CRAIG ROBERTS: WASHINGTON IS CHANGING THE WORLD ORDER AGAINST ITS OWN INTERESTS

The world order has already changed. China has a larger and more powerful industrial and manufacturing based economy than the US, and China’s potential domestic consumer market is four times larger than that of the US. As economies are consumer based, China’s potential is an economy four times larger than that of the US.

Russia has a far more capable military with weapon systems unmatched by the US. The US is drowning in debt, and the illegal and irresponsible sanctions that Washington tries to impose on others are driving the world’s largest countries away from the use of the US dollar as world reserve currency and away from Western clearance systems such as SWIFT. The United States already has one foot in the grave. Any country sufficiently stupid to ally with the US is allied with a dead man walking.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As grim as Paul Craig Robert's assessment is of the world situation, I must grudgingly concur.

The possibilities here, are either a complete collapse of the US economy, or a world war which will probably leave no nation standing, as we see them today.

Rather, we will see a new international alliance which will be ignoring what is left of the US, because of its long history of international aggression, as though it were Kryptonite.

NC hospital reviewing 9,200 cases after lab mistakes wrongly diagnosed cancer

After at least 10 patients received improper diagnoses owed to pathology lab errors, Winston Salem, N.C.-based Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center has been reviewing 9,291 cases ahead of a June deadline set by CMS that could strip its Medicare certification.

As North Carolina Health News reports, Wake Forest Baptist’s errors were costly. Of the 10 already identified, three of them underwent unnecessary surgery and radiation treatment in 2016 and 2017, including one who received a double mastectomy despite not having breast cancer. A fourth patient was “underdiagnosed,” only having breast cancer diagnosed 13 months after her biopsy.

SERBIA THREATENS MILITARY ACTION AFTER KOSOVO VOTES TO CREATE ARMY

Serbia has threatened military action against neighbouring Kosovo after its parliament approved the creation of a new army.

Kosovar MPs voted on Friday to expand the existing Kosovo Security Force into a 5,000-troop army, plus 3,000 reservists.

Belgrade called the move a “direct threat to peace and stability” in the Balkans and lashed out at the United States for supporting the proposal.

Kosovo unilaterally declared independence in 2008, but Serbia does not recognise its former province as a state.

Belgrade insists the new army would violate a UN resolution that brought to an end its bloody crackdown on ethnic Albanian separatists in 1999.

Serbian prime minister Ana Brnabic said armed intervention was “one of the options on the table”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And here is a companion article, dated 8 December:

CIA sending ship full if arms to Kosovo Army

It appears the US's CIA has decided upon which side of the conflict here upon which they are betting; and it doesn't look like that is Serbia's side at all.

This area has been a wellspring of military conflict for years, and was actually part of the history which generated World War 1.

The Entire Nation Mobilized, Syria has Won the War against US-Sponsored Terrorism

Yes, there is rubble, in fact total destruction, in some of the neighborhoods of Homs, Aleppo, in the outskirts of Damascus, and elsewhere.

Yes, there are terrorists and ‘foreign forces’ in Idlib and in several smaller pockets in some parts of the country.

Yes, hundreds of thousands of people lost their lives and millions are either in exile, or internally displaced.

But the country of Syria is standing tall.

It did not crumble like Libya or Iraq did. It never surrendered. It never even considered surrender as an option. It went through total agony, through fire and unimaginable pain, but in the end, it won. It almost won. And the victory will, most likely, be final in 2019.

The Yemeni Dead: Six Times Higher Than Previously Reported

The number of people killed by the violence in Yemen has for the first time risen above 3,000 dead in a single month, bringing the total number of fatalities to over 60,000 since the start of 2016. The figure is six times greater than the out-of-date figure of 10,000 dead often cited in the media and by politicians.

“We have recorded 3,068 people killed in November, bringing the total number of Yemenis who have died in the violence to 60,223 since January 2016,” says Andrea Carboni, a researcher on Yemen for the Armed Conflict Location and Event Data Project (ACLED), formerly based at Sussex University, that studies conflicts and seeks to establish the real casualty level.

The figures do not include the Yemenis who have died through starvation or malnutrition – the country is on the brink of famine, according to the UN – or from illnesses caused by the war such as cholera.

Democrat On Why He Voted to Prolong Yemen War: ‘I Don’t Know a Damn Thing About It’

The government of Saudi Arabia has been bombing and starving the Middle East’s poorest country for about three years, now. One recent estimate suggests that 85,000 children under 5 years old have already died from malnutrition as a result of Riyadh’s intervention in Yemen’s civil war. If the Saudis’ air strikes and blockade continue, Yemen is poised to face the worst famine humanity has seen in 100 years, according to the U.N.

The United States bears much of the responsibility for all of this: Our federal government’s steadfast commitment to an alliance with the Saudis has led America to support Riyadh’s monstrous campaign by supplying it with weapons, logistical support, and midair refueling services for Saudi fighter planes. Without that last form of support, much of the Saudi campaign would be impossible.

The Indiscreet Charm of the Gilets Jaunes

So it appears the privatization of France isn’t going quite as smoothly as planned. As I assume you are aware, for over a month now, the gilets jaunes (or “yellow vests”), a multiplicitous, leaderless, extremely pissed off, confederation of working class persons, have been conducting a series of lively protests in cities and towns throughout the country to express their displeasure with Emmanuel Macron and his efforts to transform their society into an American-style neo-feudal dystopia. Highways have been blocked, toll booths commandeered, luxury automobiles set on fire, and shopping on the Champs-Élysées disrupted. What began as a suburban tax revolt has morphed into a bona fide working class uprising.

Confiscating firearms could easily be part of the job description for deputies on the second shift at the Westmoreland County Sheriff's Office.

Sheriff Jonathan Held said the shift that begins at 3 p.m. is when deputies are sent out to serve Protection From Abuse orders that require defendants to surrender their weapons.

"We usually get about 500 to 700 weapons a year," Held said, gesturing to the hundreds of firearms secured in an evidence room in the basement of the county courthouse. They range from pellet guns to pricey customized semiautomatic rifles.

Once confiscated, the guns are ticketed, logged in and held under lock and key for the duration of PFA orders that can last as long as three years.

MN Rep. Ilhan Omar Mocks Mike Pence’s Christian Faith – But She Gets to Keep Her Twitter Account

Ilhan Omar won a historic victory over 44-year incumbent DFL Rep. Phyllis Kahn.

Ilhan Omar built a vast coalition of East African voters to defeat the incumbent in Minneapolis.

The liberal media forgot to mention Ilhan was married to her brother.

In 2017, several months after Omar’s marriage history briefly created a national news item, Omar quietly petitioned family court for a default divorce, claiming she could not locate Elmi.

Democrat Ilhan Omar ran against the BDS – anti-Israel -movement.
But now that she won her election she is open about her support for BDS.

On Friday Ilhan Omar mocked Mike Pence’s Christian faith.

Shares of Johnson & Johnson tumbled 12 per cent on Friday and were on track to post their biggest percentage drop in more than 16 years, after Reuters reported that the pharma major knew for decades that cancer-causing asbestos lurked in its Baby Powder.

The decline in shares erased about US$47 billion from the company’s market capitalization with investors worrying about the fallout of the report as it faces thousands of talc-related lawsuits.

“It is not surprising that an article from Reuters outlining years of potential knowledge regarding the perils of talc should agitate investors,” BMO Capital Markets analyst Joanne Wuensch said.

“This is not a simple matter, as there are more than 10,000 pending cases.”

Ol Doinyo Lengai volcano showing signs it may erupt, Tanzania

The Ol Doinyo Lengai, called the Mountain of God by the Maasai people is showing signs it may erupt. This is the only volcano in the world that sometimes erupts natrocarbonatite lava, a highly fluid lava that contains almost no silicon.

According to Al Jazeera's Catherine Soi, reporting from the foothills of the volcano, Old Doinyo Lengai is now threatening nearby villages and three major sites of early human development.

The last known eruptive phase of this volcano took place from April 9, 2017 to ~August 12, 2018. The previous eruptive phase lasted from June 22, 2011 to ~July 5, 2014.

RIP Obamacare? Federal judge strikes down Affordable Care Act as ‘unconstitutional’

A Texas federal judge has struck down the Affordable Care Act, ruling it can not be classed as a tax without a penalty for those who don’t buy health insurance. Without that penalty, he wrote, “Obamacare” is unconstitutional.
The ruling is expected to be appealed to the Supreme Court and the law will remain in effect until the appeals process is over. The ACA previously withstood more than 70 unsuccessful repeal attempts.

‘Crass & offensive’: Mika Brzezinski apologizes on-air for Mike Pompeo ‘butt boy’ comment

MSNBC’s Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski has apologized on air for using a “vulgar” homophobic slur when criticizing Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s attitude towards Saudi Arabia and the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Following her mysterious absence from Morning Joe on Thursday, the co-host was back Friday morning with an apology for calling Pompeo “a wannabe dictator’s butt boy” in an on air rant. Brzezinski admitted the term she used was “vulgar” and said she immediately regretted using it. “I knew it right away and I tweeted that it was a terrible choice of words,” she said.

‘WE’RE SORRY THIS HAPPENED’: BUG CAUSES LEAK OF 7 MILLION FACEBOOK USERS’ PHOTOS

he relentless stream of controversy at Facebook continues unabated as the social media giant has revealed that a bug in its software gave third party apps access to photos belonging to nearly seven million users.
The bug gave the external operators far greater access to Facebook users’ images than the tech firm normally allows. Permission usually only extends to the public photos that people share on their timeline.

However, due to the API glitch developers were given access to other images belonging to users, including ones on Facebook stories, Marketplace and even photos that had been uploaded onto the social media site but that users had decided not to publish.

The API malfunction existed for nearly two weeks from September 13 to 25 this year. Facebook developer Tomer Bar said in a blog post on Friday that the only apps that had access to the hidden photos were those to which users had already granted access to their public images.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I haven't read Facebook's "terms and conditions" in a long time, but one has to wonder: will Facebook be hit with a class action lawsuit, because of this bug?!?!?

They lied: The UN Migration Pact IS legally binding and could be valid FOR ALL countries

For months proponents of the UN Migration Pact told us that the pact was non-binding. The response to the many citizens of nation states worldwide having signed country specific petitions was that it was non-binding so there was nothing to worry about, it was going to be good.

The immensely opposed and disastrous document declares unlimited migration to be treated as a human right, thereby deprecating the term ‘illegal migrants’, and criminalises any criticism of migration as hate speech.

The points that raised alarm for most was that it seeks to eliminate all forms of dissent. Media organisations for example, should they criticise anything to do with migration would lose access to state funding. People would be labelled as racists or guilty of hate speech which will now be criminalised. This pact will literally erase our borders.

‘Unregistered foreign agent’: Clinton Foundation oversight panel hears explosive testimony

Fraud investigators have exposed the Clinton Foundation’s alleged misdeeds in a Congressional hearing, describing it as a de facto “foreign agent” devoted not to charity but to “advancing the personal interests of its principals.”
The Clinton Foundation acted as an agent of foreign governments “early in its life and throughout its existence,” according to testimony by former government forensic investigator John Moynihan, which, if true, would not only render it in violation of the Foreign Agents Registration Act but also would violate its nonprofit charter, putting it on the hook for a massive quantity of unpaid taxes.

The foundation began acting as an agent of foreign governments early in its life and continued doing so throughout its existence, as such, the foundation should have registered under FARA.

Still Waiting in Vain for Victoria Nuland to Join French Protests With Cookies

Unlike the 2014 Ukraine uprising, which witnessed invasive meddling on the part of US politicians and diplomats, Western support for the French Yellow Vest protests has been conspicuously missing in action.

The streets of Paris are ablaze for a fourth weekend in a row, as a swarm of Yellow Vests assert themselves against a French government which, they argue, has become increasingly detached from the cares of ordinary citizens. Yet support among Western capitals for the protesters is nowhere to be found.

Poroshenko Has Nothing Left to Lose – The Worse It Is for Him, the More Dangerous He Is For Others

In recent days, in connection with the frank violation by Poroshenko’s regime of all international norms, and also of the articles of the Constitution and laws of Ukraine regulating relations between the church and state, experts and politicians often ask a question (not always having a rhetorical character): is he really not afraid of the consequences?

After all, any competent lawyer can prove a whole bouquet of criminal offences, among which the smallest one is the abuse of power and his own official authority.

McCain's Senate Seat Has Been Rented Out to a Pro-Nukes Lobbyist Howling About Russia

LATE LAST MONTH, two former policymakers and lobbyists teamed up for an op-ed in the Washington Post. It was, as the genre goes, fairly mundane: a description of a problem or a threat, and a prescription that just happens to benefit a particular corporate sector that the lobbyists just might have an interest in benefiting.

In a piece titled “Why America needs low-yield nuclear warheads now,” Michael Morell and Jon Kyl argued that Russian and Chinese nuclear modernization programs demanded a response. “Russia is intent on exploiting what it perceives as a U.S. nuclear capability gap,” they write. “We must change that calculation” by adding submarine and sea-launched missiles with nuclear warheads. This would increase deterrence and prevent nuclear war, they claim; otherwise Russia will strike first.

Chinese Use Russian-Italian Technology On Giant Particle Accelerator

The Chinese Institute of High Energy Physics has unveiled the project of a 100-kilometer particle accelerator that could be an attempt to lead the field of particle physics.

Earlier, the Chinese tried to build a 50-kilometer accelerator, however, eventually designing a 100-kilometer ring.

The underground facility will be in a Higgs boson factory, called “particle of God.” The Chinese main objective is to demonstrate the existence of new physics and solve the mystery of dark matter.

Trey Gowdy Demolished The Deep State’s Ringleader With Just Four Words

When James Comey served as FBI Director, he acted as one of the ringleaders of Barack Obama’s Deep State.

Now Comey openly campaigns for President Trump’s defeat as revenge for being fired.

Trey Gowdy had finally heard enough of it and demolished Comey with just four words.

Retiring South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy appeared on Martha MacCallum’s Fox News program to discuss several developments related to Comey.

The former FBI Director recently testified behind closed doors to the House Judiciary Committee.

Comey’s testimony was so incomplete – he said “I don’t recall” hundreds of times – that the Republicans demanded he appear for a second time.

The former FBI Director also made waves by publicly stating it was a national imperative that Americans remove Trump from office.

Gowdy ripped Comey for his testimony.

Macron accused of treason by French generals for signing UN Migration Pact

General Antoine Martinez has written the letter signed by ten other generals, an admiral and colonel, and also includes former French Minister of Defense Charles Millon.

They’ve given strong warning that Macron’s signing the U.N. Global Migration Pact strips France of even more sovereignty providing an additional reason for “an already battered people” to “revolt”.

The highly decorated military co-signees assert that the beleaguered Macron is “guilty of a denial of democracy or treason against the nation” for signing the migration pact without putting it to the people.

“The French state is late in coming to realize the impossibility of integrating too many people, in addition to totally different cultures, who have regrouped in the last forty years in areas that no longer submit to the laws of the Republic,” the letter advises, also saying that mass immigration is erasing France’s “civilizational landmarks”.

Hungary wants that Christmas remains Christmas with a nativity scene and a Christmas tree – Foreign Minister

Hungary wants to preserve an EU where Christmas remains Christmas, with a nativity scene and a Christmas tree, Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto said on Monday.

According to Szijjarto, Europe must insist on its traditions and heritage and resist all attempts to irrevocably change the ethnic mix of the European Union.

Hungary insists that Europe is faced by a migration issue rather than a refugee issue, and migration processes must be stopped.

Hungary views illegal migrants as illegal migrants and not as refugees, the minister said, adding that the Hungarian government will vote against the UN migration compact in New York.
