The propaganda posters that sold World War I to the American public, 1914-1918

The United States entered World War I in 1917 as an associated power on the allied side of Britain and France. By the time that World War I came around, the United States was a leader in the recently discovered art of movie making and the new profession of commercial advertising. Such newly discovered technologies played an instrumental role in the shaping of the American mind and the altering of public opinion into a pro-war position. The government didn’t have time to waste while its citizens made up their minds about joining the fight. How could ordinary Americans be convinced to participate in the war “over there”?

David Hogg Relaunches Advertiser Boycott Against Laura Ingraham

Gun control activist David Hogg renewed efforts to get advertisers to boycott Fox News’ Laura Ingraham by tweeting a list of advertisers that include Cabela’s and John Deere.

CBNBC reports Hogg originally sought a boycott of Ingraham in late March after he felt slighted by her during his gun control campaign. His boycott efforts revolved around comments she made regarding the list of colleges that refused to accept him.

Now he is pointing to comments Ingraham made in support of President Trump’s commitment to enforcing existing immigration law. This support includes Ingraham describing detention centers for children illegally crossing the border as “summer camps.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The look on Hogg's face says it all.

Less than one in 20 street robberies and burglaries are being solved in the UK, shocking new figures have revealed.

Official police data shows that just four per cent of robberies and three per cent of burglaries were solved in England and Wales in 2017.

The figures will fuel concerns that there is a crisis in the nation's policing, with one MP describing London as 'the Wild West'.

Iraqi murderer of German teen girl bragged: Everything is for free here, no working and a salary from the state

The murderer of the German teen girl Susanna, bragged about Germany to his relatives in Iraq. He and his family would not have to work and they would get a salary from the state, MMnews reports.

During their stay in Germany for several years, Ali B. and his family apparently raved about the conditions in this country to relatives in northern Iraq. “They said that they are doing well in Germany,” says a cousin of Ali B. from the Iraqi Kurdish region.

“They would not have to work hard, they would take care of them and they would get a salary from the state,” relatives said.

“A group of survivors and families of victims of the 2015 Paris terrorist attack at the Bataclan concert hall in Paris has filed a lawsuit against the French state over its response during the police operation that night.

The group which includes 17 victims and families of victims wants to know why eight soldiers from the “Sentinelle” anti-terror patrols armed with assault rifles, who were outside the concert hall while the massacre was taking place inside, were told by their superiors not to intervene.”

House Dems Use DOJ IG Hearing To Go After GOP For Child Border Separations

Democrats on the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees used a Tuesday joint hearing on the Justice Department Inspector General’s report to take the Trump administration to task for the current crisis at the border, where thousands of immigrant children have been forcibly separated from their parents.

“Are we really going to sit here, 70 members of a Congress of the United States of America in 2018 and have a hearing that just repeats the hearings the Senate had yesterday on Hillary Clinton’s emails?” an outraged Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD), the ranking member on the Oversight Committee, asked his colleagues.

Gowdy scorches Comey in blistering opening statement at IG hearing

House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy scorched James Comey in a blistering opening statement at a high-profile congressional hearing on Tuesday, declaring “we can’t survive with a justice system we don’t trust.”

Gowdy kicked off the hearing featuring testimony from Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz on his review of the Hillary Clinton email case. The top DOJ watchdog is on Capitol Hill for the second day in a row to discuss the explosive report.

But Gowdy launched into Tuesday's session -- a joint hearing held by the House oversight and judiciary panels -- with a fiery condemnation of the former FBI director and certain agents in the bureau he led.

Referring to IG findings that Comey defied his superiors in his handling of the Clinton email case, Gowdy accused the ex-director of essentially operating by his own rules.

"We see Jim Comey and Jim Comey alone deciding which DOJ policies to follow and which to ignore," he said.

Saudi-backed Yemeni forces capture Hodeidah airport

Saudi-backed Yemeni government forces have captured the airport at Hodeidah and have started preparations for the more complex task of capturing the city and its port nine miles (15km) to the north. The port is critical to the supply of aid to the rest of the famine-struck country.

Confirmation that the airport on the southern outskirts of the city had been seized after three days of fighting came from both TV pictures and eyewitness accounts. At least 40 Houthi fighters who had held the airport were killed, but most retreated into the city, preparing to fight a potentially intense street-by-street campaign that could endanger tens of thousands of civilians.

Why America’s Trade War With China Will Be Absolutely Crippling For The U.S. Economy: Mike Snyder, THE ECONOMIC COLLAPSE

Most Americans didn’t even notice, but Donald Trump fired a shot that was very clearly heard all the way over in China on Friday when he slapped a tariff of 25 percent on 50 billion dollars worth of Chinese products…

China accused the United States of firing the first shot on Friday when the White House said that it would impose tariffs of 25% on $50 billion worth of Chinese goods.

The announcement confirms a threat first made by President Donald Trump in March and follows months of trade talks between the two sides. A truce was announced in May, but it proved short-lived.

“The United States has kept changing its mind and now launched a trade war,” China’s Commerce Ministry said in a statement.

The Chinese retaliated almost immediately by slapping a 25 percent tariff on 50 billion dollars worth of our goods…

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This simply cannot end well, for either economy...

Canada: Prepare for a bloody trade war!

In late May 2018, the U.S announced its decision (previously telegraphed and widely expected) to forge ahead with tariffs on steel (25 percent) and aluminum (10 percent) imported from Canada (and other countries too!). The mere fact that these tough, yet highly anticipated, tariffs were looming, sent the Canadian economy in a tizzy:

The S&P/TSX Composite Index dipped by 43.87 points, losing 0.27% intra-day
The stock price of Canada’s lone publicly-traded steel company, Stelco Holdings Inc., saw a 3.1% decline
The Loonie dipped by 0.7%; and
The yields on 10-year government of Canada bonds lost 4-basis points, dropping to 2.23%
If just the mere announcing of tariffs can have this type of impact, imagine what kind of ripple-effect the actual imposition and counter-imposition of more duties will have globally!

As Tensions Rise, Greeks See Sudden 90% Surge In 'Asylum-Seekers' Across Land Border With Turkey

In the last few months, tensions between two NATO member states have escalated dramatically - Turkey has threatened to invade Greek islands, Greece has responded, Turkey has violated Greek airspace 100s of times, and Greeks now see Turkey as the greatest threat to their existence.

And now, in the first five months of 2018, KeepTalkingGreece.com reports that Greece has been Europe’s top entry point for refugees and migrants. According to the European Border and Coast Guard Agency, Frontext, over 19,800 people entered Greece during January – May 2018. At the same time, the land border crossing from Turkey to Greece increased by 90 percent. The majority of these people were Syrians and Iraqis.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In light of the fact that both countries are NATO members, it would seem that the guy for the job here would be none other than NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, if he really wants NATO to get its MOJO back.

Stop the squabbling here, get Turkey to behave itself, and not ratchet up international tensions any more than they already are.

How will Russia and Iran respond to the US challenge in the Caspian Sea?

On May 5 2018 Kazakhstan ratified an agreement with the US for the transit of US military cargo and possibly even troops (under the euphemism of ‘advisors’ or ‘engineers’) to Afghanistan via the Caspian Sea route.

The ostensible reason is that the US’s long established supply lines to Afghanistan via Pakistan are now ‘under threat’. However, as is often the case nowadays, the reality is rather more complicated.

Just five months before the agreement was reached, in December 2017, purportedly at the instigation of the businessman Anatolie Stati who is involved in a longstanding legal dispute with the Kazakh authorities, the Bank of New York Mellon froze $22.6 billion of funds belonging to Kazakhstan’s sovereign wealth fund.

EU Backs Effort To Prosecute Israeli Military Officials For Human Rights Violations

The European Union is funding a project to prosecute Israel Defence Forces (IDF) officers for committing violations against Palestinian civilians, according to Israel Hayom, which quotes a local human rights organisation.

The pro-Israel group NGO Monitor analyses the funding and performance of non-governmental organisations which keep an eye on violations committed by the IDF.

“Following the request of Israeli human rights organisations,” it reported, “the European Union has begun funding a project for the prosecution of Israeli military staff involved in the violation of human rights in the occupied Palestinian territories.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Such prosecutions will be symbolic only; Israel will never allow their IDF members to be extradited for trial, and will continue in defending their worst horrendous behaviour with the excuse: "The Palestians MADE them do it; particularly that Palestinian baby who died of tear gas inhallation at a protest!!"

Trump To Withdraw From UN Human Rights Council Today

Two years after Russia was kicked out of the UN Human Rights Council, while that paragon of humanitarian virtue Saudi Arabia was reelected, the WaPo reports that the Trump administration is set to withdrawal from the United Nations Human Rights Council as soon as today, making good on a pledge to leave a body that Trump has repeatedly accused of hypocrisy and criticized as biased against Israel.

Per The Washington Post, the decision to leave the 47-nation body, as most observers anticipate, would be more definitive than the lesser option of staying on as a nonvoting observer.

It would represent another retreat by the Trump administration from international groups and agreements whose policies it deems out of sync with American interests on trade, defense, climate change and now, human rights.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is a very sad day when the US government pulls out of a UN sponsored organization when it should be at its head, championing basic human rights for all people... one might say, even those of the Palestinians.

But no, Trump cannot have that, because any attempt to identify Israel as the culprit/creator of the catastrophic situation of Gazan Palestinians, goes against the grain of his bromance with Netanyahu, and he is willing to put everything, and everyone else, under the proveribal bus, to defend that relationship; even potentially going to war against Iran.

And speaking of BFFs in the Middle East, what does it say about President Trump, that his two "fave" guys from the region, are Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu, who is having every Palestinian he can assassinated, and their lands expropriated, and Saudi Arabia's Prince Salman, the Butcher of Yemen, who, as I type this, is on the way to having as many Yemeni infants, children, women, and medically fragile elderly, assassinated at the seige of the Yemen port of Hodeidah as humanly possible?!?

This reality gives me pause for thought here.

Russia And India Ditch Dollar In Military Deals

With the US increasingly willing to use the dollar, and SWIFT, as a strategic weapon against the country's sovereign enemies (as Iran learned every 5 or so years), Russia and India are preparing to bypass US sanctions on Moscow by using the rupee and the ruble in bilateral trade involving military deals, the Economic Times reported.

Some $2 billion in weapons deals between India and Russia have been hit as a result of the recent US sanctions, as payments get stuck. The countries are seeking to bypass such monetary bottlenecks this by switching to settlements in domestic currencies and ditching the greenback.

Senior officials told ET that after several rounds of consultations, it has become clear that a rupee-rouble transfer, pegged to the exchange rate of an international currency, is the solution. A top official said that a foreign currency, such as the Singapore dollar, could be used as the benchmark.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So what is the US government going to do, invade every country ditching the US dollar?!?

That... is going to be one heck of a lot of invasions, given the tempo at which the US dollar is being abandoned.

Pat Buchanan: "Where Many Americans See Illegal Intruders, Democrats See Future Voters"

“It is cruel. It is immoral. And it breaks my heart,” says former first lady Laura Bush of the Trump administration policy of “zero tolerance,” under which the children of illegal migrants are being detained apart from their parents.

“Disgraceful,” adds Dr. Franklin Graham.

“We need to be … a country that governs with a heart,” says first lady Melania Trump.

“No one likes this policy,” says White House aide Kellyanne Conway, even “the president wants this to end.”

And so it shall - given the universal denunciations and photos of sobbing children being pulled from parents. Yet striking down the policy will leave America’s immigration crisis still unresolved.

Consider. Since 2016, some 110,000 children have entered the U.S. illegally and been released, along with 200,000 Central American families caught sneaking across the border.

Reflecting its frustration, the White House press office declared:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Where many in this country see undocumented, illegal aliens, flooding the country, and for whom it has no work, and presses an horrendous financial burden on the rest of us, Democrats see..... voters; voters to be wooed to come, given all kinds of freebies, and maintained by the rest of society, no matter how great the financial burden is, which is now put upon working Americans.

Here Are The Six Ways China Could Retaliate In Trade War With The U.S.

There are 6 possible things that China can do at this time, in order of escalating severity:

1. China could de-escalate tensions by presenting a list of actions it will follow to reduce its significant trade deficits in services with the US.

2. China will likely launch an economic subsidy for its economy in the form of further easing in financial conditions to offset any potential trade-drag.

3. China could unleash differential treatment of local enterprises: as some have suggested, Beijing could simply opt not apply its "market access liberalization" policy recently announced.

4. China could also choose a diplomatic retaliation, and order Kim Jong Un to scuttle the recent agreement North Korea signed with the US, humiliating Trump by showing that it was Beijing all along who made the US-N. Korea summit possible and successful.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What really concerns me here, is how trade wars can morph into currency wars, then into actual shooting wars.

Stop the wars to end the refugee crisis

Europe is facing its most significant refugee crisis since World War Two. All attempts at resolving the issue have failed, mostly because those charged with doing so have ignored the root causes of the problem.

Furthermore, on 11 June, Italy’s new Interior Minister, Matteo Salvini, blocked the Aquarius rescue ship from docking in Italian ports. It was carrying 629 refugees and economic migrants. A statement by Doctors without Borders (MSF) stated that the passengers included 123 unaccompanied minors and seven pregnant women.

“From now on,” said Salvini, who also heads the far-right League Party, “Italy begins to say NO to the traffic of human beings, NO to the business of illegal immigration.”

The number of refugees was repeated in news broadcasts time and again, as a mere statistic. In reality, there were 629 precious lives at stake, each human being with a compelling reason why s/he has undertaken the potentially deadly journey to Europe.

Israel’s invasion of the Arab capitals

An Israeli delegation will visit the Kingdom of Bahrain on Sunday, adding a new link to the chain of Arab normalisation with Israel. This is occurring at a time when Arab countries are being isolated from their national surroundings and depth, including the Palestinian Authority, which is suffering from a silent boycott as the PA President is in undeclared “isolation” because he rejects the “deal of the century”.

The delegation will participate in the UNESCO World Heritage Committee meeting. It is both strange to see, and unusual, that Israel’s participation in the meeting was announced in a local pro-government newspaper, Akhbar Al Khaleej. The newspaper quoted a Bahraini official in its reporting of this information.

As summer travel begins, TSA says come early and be prepared

Come early, have your bag packed properly and expect that you might need to unpack some items at the security checkpoint, more so than last summer.

That's the advice of Bart Johnson, who leads security for the Transportation Security Administration at airports across upstate, including at Albany International Airport.

Johnson said Monday during a press conference at Albany International that with the summer travel season arriving, air passenger traffic at the airport increases 10 percent, from 4,500 people a day to 5,000 people a day — all of whom must make their way through the TSA checkpoint.

That means the potential for longer lines and longer waits, although Johnson said Monday that TSA officers have been going through training for the summer season and the Albany checkpoints are fully staffed in preparation.

"Most summer days will seem like holiday time with the increase in passengers expected throughout the summer," Johnson said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My late father was an aircraft instrument mechanic, and I used to love to fly; these days, and living on an island, one cannot get to the mainland except by air or sea, that means Mike and I need to be at Honolulu International at least 3 hours early, to put up with the brutes of the TSA, consistently inappropriately touching, groping, and rumaging through the baggage of innocent people who have no evil intent whatsoever.

Remember, these are the folks who were rejected by McDonald's, and generally could not find a job elsewhere; just keep language as short and direct as possible, and try not to glare too hard when your civil and human rights are consistently violated by these...alleged humans.

Is Israel now seeking US recognition of its occupation of Syria’s Golan?

After Donald Trump’s recognition of the illegal Israeli annexation of Jerusalem by moving his country’s embassy to the city, the next prize that some in American and Israeli political echelons want him to hand to Israel seems to be a chunk of Syria. Senator Ted Cruz – the religious extremist who was Trump’s closest opponent in the Republican primaries – pushed forward efforts in the US Congress this month which could lead to formal recognition of the illegally-occupied Syrian Golan Heights as Israeli territory.

The Golan Heights is a region of south-west Syria which has mostly been under illegal Israeli occupation for 51 years. In 1967, at the same time that Israel brutally invaded and occupied the remaining parts of Palestine — the West Bank and Gaza Strip — it also invaded Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula and Syria’s Golan Heights.

Former Duke “rabbi on campus” calls for death curse on Durham

Ben Packer, self-styled former “rabbi on campus” at North Carolina’s Duke University, has called for a “pulsa denura,” or death curse, to be invoked against all of the city of Durham.

In a Facebook discussion with one Scott Hirsch on 2 May, Packer declared, “Someone should do that pulsa denura thing to that city. All of humanity would benefit.”

This could be considered a form of incitement to violence: such a death curse was publicly pronounced outside the official residence of Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin just weeks before he was assassinated by a Jewish extremist in November 1995.

France prevents Gaza-bound flotilla from docking in Seine

Police in France have prevented two boats from a Gaza Strip-bound flotilla from docking in Seine River, despite subjecting the vessels to extensive searches in advance.

The boats and two other vessels are part of the Freedom Flotilla, which is to set sail for Gaza in the hope of breaking Israel’s siege of the coastal enclave.

The river police confronted the vessels on Sunday as dozens of pro-Palestinian activists were celebrating the flotilla’s imminent departure and chanting “Stop the massacre of Palestinians.”

The honorary president of the France-Palestine Solidarity Association (AFPS) Taoufiq Tahani confirmed that the boats had undergone a thorough inspection.

“We were unfortunately surprised and didn’t know that Israeli waters now begin in the Seine (river) in Paris. That’s unimaginable,” he said sarcastically.

Almost 1,000 People Injured, Killed in Terrorist Attacks By Refugees

Nearly 1,000 people were injured or killed in terrorist attacks involving refugees over a four-year span, with Germany facing the highest number of terror plots, according to a new Heritage Foundation report published Monday.

Data collected from the 194 terrorist plots detected across Europe between January 2014 and December 2017 point to a more than one-in-three chance that Germany will be the country targeted in future terror schemes, with civilians being the primary bullseye.

Though only 32, or 16 percent, of those terrorist plots involved refugees or asylum seekers, 41 percent of all plots occurred in Germany. France was the second most targeted country, with Belgium and the United Kingdom trailing closely behind.

Obama in Political Bind Over Unaccompanied Immigrant Minors

Flashback, 2014:

President Barack Obama asked Congress for $3.7 billion Tuesday to handle the thousands of child migrants on the southern border, and he’d like lawmakers to treat the emergency request as a simple matter of human compassion.

“Our hope and expectation consistent with the incoming we have received from both parties is that this will be treated as the urgent humanitarian situation that it is,” said a White House official who briefed reporters about the request.

But nothing is quite so simple in Washington these days. By sending the request to Congress, Republicans, who are outraged over Obama’s immigration policies, will now have an opportunity to express their fury in must-sign legislation, possibly attaching policy riders or demanding budget cuts elsewhere.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You see, when President Obama institutionalized child migrants, it was fine; now that Trump has done it, it's awful!!

D.C. is full of psychopaths, new study says. See where your state falls on the list

It's not a joke. Our nation's capitol really is full of psychopaths - and your state might be as well, according to a new working study from Southern Methodist University.

The new analysis, which has not gone through full peer review but was published to the Social Science Research Network, ranked the 48 continental states and the District of Columbia by the psychopathic personality markers — or "traits" — of their residents.

“These results are the first estimates we have, to the best of my knowledge, on the degree of psychopathy found in each state," Ryan Murphy, author of the study, told Newsweek.

Murphy computed each state's ranking by building on a previous study that ranked each state based on each of the "Big Five" personality traits: agreeableness, extraversion, openness, conscientiousness and neuroticism.

Poll shows Americans don’t think for themselves

A recent survey conducted by Reuters shows how many Americans base their support or opposition to a given political stance not on the soundness of the policy, but based on whether or not it comes with the backing of a favored or disfavored political authority.

The present situation surrounding the breaking up of migrant families at the border is a case in point. Support and opposition for Trump’s policy on the matter seems to come largely from either a desire to defend Donald Trump or from a desire to oppose him in some way. That there are moral issues to be solved here and problems created not just for the migrants, but also for the judicial system, highlighting the corporate cronyism in America, seems to be lacking in consideration.

IG Report Questions Why FBI Did Not Investigate Huma Abedin’s Emails During Hillary Probe

In its extensive report on the Hillary Clinton email probe, the Justice Department’s internal watchdog raised significant questions about why the FBI did not examine the contents of Clinton aide Huma Abedin’s private email accounts and did not seek to obtain Abedin’s personal devices to determine whether classified information was exchanged.
The report noted Abedin should have been a point of interest since the FBI obtained from other sources classified email exchanges between Clinton and Abedin that were missing from the 30,490 emails turned over to the State Department by Clinton’s attorneys. Clinton had claimed the remaining emails were not work-related.

Also, the report documented that the FBI did not go after Abedin’s emails or devices even though she was “the only State Department employee, besides Clinton, with an account on the clintonemail.com domain on Clinton’s server.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The short answer is, because Abedin was, through her very close association with Clinton, another one of the "Untouchables", whose lives could not be messed with, without "major repercussions" (including, potentially assassination, as happened with Seth Richards) occuring.

And no one in this government, had, or has, the "guts" to go there.

No F-35s for Turkey: US Senate blocks sale of fighter jets to Ankara

US Senators have voted to block the sale of F-35s to Turkey, slamming their NATO ally for plans to buy Russian S-400 missile batteries. Ankara warned of “an alternative” should the deal be called off.

The first of the 100 US-made F-35 fighter jets were to be delivered to Turkey on June 21 but now the whole deal might be off as the US Senators voted to kill the sale. The bill, which is yet to be approved by President Donald Trump, passed the Senate floor on Monday, with 85 votes in favor and 10 against.

Why Aren't THESE People Considered For Asylum In The United States?

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is webpage on asylum seekers states, in part,"Every year people come to the United States seeking protection because they have suffered persecution or fear that they will suffer persecution due to Political opinion." I wonder if people like Jeremy Bedford Turner (in jail for saying that there is inordinate "Jewish control" in the UK), or holocaust skeptics Monika Schaefer and Ursula Haverbeck (both currently imprisoned in Europe), Catholic Bishop Richard Williamson, (who was previously arrested for a TV interview he did in which he cast doubt on the 'gas chambers.') Can they get asylum in the U.S. based on their fear of prosecution for their controversial political opinions? WHY NOT??! Recall that the late Ernst Zundel not only was not granted asylum, but he was nabbed by U.S. homeland security while living peacefully with his elderly American wife in Tennessee,

The Knesset officially declares that Israeli democracy is for Jews only

In a rare act, the Presidency of the Knesset (a ten-member group representing most parties) last week disqualified a bill moved by Israeli Palestinian parliamentarians from coming to a debate or vote. The bill in question was named “Basic Law: Israel [is a] State of All Its Citizens.”

Together with the eight Members of Knesset of the Jewish Home, the Presidency could field 95 MKs out of 120 to vote the bill down. And yet, it was considered too dangerous to debate.

Just what was so problematic in the bill? The Knesset legal counsel, Eyal Yanon, said it clearly:

“[The bill] contains several articles which are meant to change the character of Israel from the national state of the Jewish People into a state which grants equal status, from the national point of view, to the Jewish nation and the Arab nation.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This was a perfectly predictable response, courtesy of a wretchedly apartheid, self-proclaimed theocracy, with nuclear weapons.

Afghan peace marchers arrive in Kabul exhausted and tired of war

Hundreds of Afghan peace marchers arrived exhausted in the capital, Kabul, on Monday after spending the fasting month of Ramadan crossing the sun-baked, war-torn country, much of it under Taliban control.

The marchers, all men, including teachers, students and war victims on crutches and one in a wheelchair, were welcomed along the way by village women carrying the holy Koran, men singing and dancing or offering bread and yoghurt, some in tears.

"I saw and learnt things that I had never thought of before," said Iqbal Khayber, 27, a medical student from Helmand.

"We met people in areas controlled by the Taliban and in areas under government control - everyone is really tired of war."

The march was triggered by a car bomb in Helmand on March 23 that killed at least 14 people and wounded dozens. No group claimed responsibility.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, as long as the US government and NATO want to see this horrific, senseless war continue, it will continue.

And why will it continue, these miserably long 17 years on?!?

Because the US government doesn't want the world to see this as another failed military campaign; so it doesn't matter how many Afghanis or US or NATO troops get killed, or maimed for life; after all, it's only a show about the US's and NATO's superior military capabilities, demonstrating that if they haven't left, they haven't lost, either.

IF US and NATO leadership had two braincells to rub together, they would evacuate their troops as quickly as is safely possible, then negotiate with whatever government was left standing in Kabul for the pipelines, the rare earth development; and the opium crops.

OF course, that... would be logical.

What’s Really Happening When Asylum-Seeking Families Are Separated?

"In other cases, we see no communication that the parent knows that their child is to be taken away. Instead, the officers say, “I’m going to take your child to get bathed.” That’s one we see again and again. “Your child needs to come with me for a bath.” The child goes off, and in a half an hour, twenty minutes, the parent inquires, “Where is my five-year-old?” “Where’s my seven-year-old?” “This is a long bath.” And they say, “You won’t be seeing your child again.” Sometimes mothers—I was talking to one mother, and she said, “Don’t take my child away,” and the child started screaming and vomiting and crying hysterically, and she asked the officers, “Can I at least have five minutes to console her?” They said no. In another case, the father said, “Can I comfort my child?

Bug in Google Home and Chromecast devices means cyber criminals could find out EXACTLY where you live and blackmail you with the information

The glitch allows hackers to access the exact location of your Wi-Fi router via a malicious link that could be sent to you via email or social media.

It was found by security researcher Craig Young, who said the issue allows cyber criminals to find your address or make scam messages more convincing.

These include fake calls from the IRS or demands for cash from hackers making phony claims that they have webcam footage of the victim watching pornography.

Google said it plans to fix the security flaw, which leaks your location with an accuracy of up to a few feet, in an update next month.

Saudi-led Coalition Enters Main Airport Compound of Yemen's Hodeidah

Saudi-led coalition forces stormed the airport after fierce battles broke out between coalition forces and Houthi militants who hold the main port city of Hodeidah, a local resident said.

"They have stormed the airport," said one Yemeni military source.

The Saudi-led coalition's aircraft carried out airstrikes, targeting Houthi fighters at the airport in Yemen's main port city of Hodeidah on June 18 in response to a missile targeting the southwestern Saudi city of Jizan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Expect a Saudi-generated bloodbath here, with utterly no quarter given, and no chance for infants, children, women, or the medically fragile elderly to survive.

And please remember; the US government is complicit in Saudi war crimes in Yemen, done in your name, and with your tax dollars.

And from antiwar.com, datelined yesterday, we have the following story:

UAE demands unconditional rebel pullout from rebel portThe article goes on to state:

"There are also an estimated 250,000 civilians left in Hodeidah. With airstrikes against the city on the rise, officials for the attacking forces say that only withdrawing from the city can “save the population.”

The massacre of citizens in Hodeidah... is coming; these conditions placed on the rebels by the UAE just telegraphed it with these demands.

Unprecedented Israeli Strikes Target Iraqi Shia Militias In Syria

A day after a mysterious airstrike close to the Iraq-Syria border reportedly killed over 30 Syrian government soldiers and Iraqi paramilitary forces backed by Iran, a US official has told CNN the attack was carried out by Israel and not by the US coalition.

Syrian state media blamed the strike on the US-led coalition — though in the immediate aftermath any level of confirmation or evidence was hard to come by. The claims prompted the US coalition spokesman to issue a formal denial, calling Syria's accusation "misinformation" as US-backed SDF forces are only operating east of the Euphrates, and not near Abu Kamal, which lies west, according to the statement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears that Israel is, once again, playing picador with Al Assad and Putin, in essence, daring them to go after an Israeli strike plane, to "justify" a massive attack against Syrian, Iraqi, and Iranian forces there, as their way of accomplishing regime change in Damascus.

Fortunately, Al Assad and Putin have had the horse-sense not to respond to these attacks.

News FeedWashington committed to Syrian southwest ceasefire arrangement, Pompeo tells LavrovMore:http://tass.com/world/1010062

The United States is committed to maintaining a de-escalation zone in southeast Syria, warning Moscow and Damascus against unilateral activity in the area, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov over the phone on Monday.

According to US State Department Spokesperson Heather Nauert, Lavrov and Pompeo had discussed "issues and concerns related to Syria and the bilateral relationship." "Secretary Pompeo reemphasized the US commitment to the (Syrian) southwest ceasefire arrangement that was approved by President (Donald) Trump and President (Vladimir) Putin one year ago," Nauert said.

US Secretary of State noted that "it was critical for Russia and the Syrian regime to adhere to these arrangements and ensure no unilateral activity in this area," she added.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Now, let me get my head around these statements.

Syria is, allegedly a sovereign nation, the leadership of which the US government wants to regime change in Damascus.

The Russian military is there at the behest of the Syrian government, to throw out the US backed, trained, and funded Jihadists.

And now, neither Russia, nor the Syrian government are "being allowed" by the US government, to operate within the sovereign state of Syria, but the US government and military is supposed to be moving with utterly no restrictions here?!?

Do Pompeo and Nauart understand just how utterly stupid these statements must have sounded to Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov yesterday?!?

The US military is digging in, militarily, in Syria, and has established a "beachhead" at Deir Ezzor. As reported at themilliniumreport.com by South Front in April of this year:

Why did the Trump Admnistration put a military base near the largest oil field in Syria?!?

The article goes on to state:

"The US is building a large military base in the vicinity of Syria’s largest oil field – the Omar oil field, Mehdi Kobani, a press secretary of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in Deir Ezzor confirmed to Sputnik Turkiye.

The Omar oil field was captured by the US-backed SDF during its anti-ISIS campaign in eastern Syria. According to Syrian sources, the military installation in the area is aimed to allow the US to consolidate control of the oil resources in the eastern part of the country setting ground for further occupation of the area. These oil resources will also be used to strengthen the influence of the US proxies – the SDF – in the area."

Don’t Want Families Separated? Close the Border!

In every other situation, if you commit a crime, you will be separated from your family. But the media is making Trump’s border policy seem like a Nazi concentration camp where kids are ripped out of the arms of innocent people. This. Is. Not. What. Is happening. Families are only separated when the parents break the law. If you don’t want families separated, secure the border so that illegal immigrants don’t have to be captured by Border Patrol and separated.

Monday Humor: Jeff Bezos Explains How Customers Can Delete Alexa's Secretly-Stored Audio

Responding to news of the digital assistant recording users’ conversations without their knowledge, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos assured critics Tuesday that Alexa’s stored audio can be deleted by simply rappelling into company headquarters, maneuvering through an intricate laser field, and destroying every server with a nanovirus.

“We take privacy concerns seriously, and I want our valued customers to know they can erase all the information their Amazon Echo has gathered just by being dropped from a helicopter over one of our towers, using a diamond-tipped glass cutter to carve out a hole in a 32nd-story window, and then employing advanced cyberwarfare techniques to compromise our data centers,” said Bezos, who added that users merely need to have their demolitions expert blow through a 7-foot steel barrier and reach Amazon’s highly complex cloud storage system to access the audio captured by Alexa.
