Watch Live: Mueller Told Barr Press Reporting On Letter Was 'Inaccurate'

Update 2: In his opening statement, Barr told Congress that he had spoken to Mueller and that the special counsel said press reporting on the letter that the special counsel had written to Barr complaining about certain aspects of Barr's summary was inaccurate.

BARR SAYS MUELLER SAID PRESS REPORTING ON LETTER WAS INACCURATE
BARR SAYS MUELLER DIDN'T SAY DOJ MISREPRESENTED HIS REPORT
Barr added that he was 'surprised' when Mueller didn't rule on obstruction, though he also told said that Comey's firing didn't amount to obstruction of justice: Comey's refusal to tell public what he was telling the president warranted firing.

During his questioning by Feinstein, which focused on what Trump told former White House counsel Donald McGahn II, Barr more than held his own, arguing that it would be impossible to prove the president ever actually directed the firing of Mueller, and it would also be difficult to show corrupt intent beyond a reasonable doubt.

Time to Foreclose on the Churchill Cult

As First Lord of the Admiralty [during the First World War], he imposed on Imperial Germany a starvation blockade that resulted in hundreds of thousands of deaths. This blockade wasn't lifted until several months after the hostilities had ended. In the Second World War Churchill supported the terror bombing of German cities, at a time when these population centers could no longer defend themselves and when the war was all but lost ... At Yalta the prime minister worked to preserve the British Empire by shamelessly praising Stalin and the Soviet Empire ... Throughout his life, he stood for the British Empire, British independence, and an "anti-socialist vision of England." In the end, Churchill watched all three vanish.

Winston Churchill's 'naughty document

The so-called 'naughty document' on which Winston Churchill carved up Europe with Josef Stalin is set to go on public display for the first time. Britain's wartime leader made the secret pact with Moscow in 1944 as the Allies closed in on victory over Nazi Germany. The sheet of paper showed the percentages of Bulgaria, Greece, Hungary, Romania and Yugoslavia which would be under Soviet or British control. It is going on display at London's National Archives in an exhibition called Britain's Cold War Revealed ... The phrase 'naughty document' was coined by Churchill himself, who recognised that it could come over as 'callous'. Churchill said his American allies would be 'shocked if they saw how crudely he had put it' ... 'It's potentially incredibly significant - the fate of millions being decided with the stroke of a pen as a result of a casual meeting.
Note: Churchill was a drunk.

ZERO PERCENT OF US CORPORATE MEDIA COMMENTATORS OPPOSE REGIME CHANGE IN VENEZUELA

Of the 76 total articles, opinion videos or TV commentator segments that centered on or gave more than passing attention to Venezuela, 54 (72 percent) expressed explicit support for the Maduro administration’s ouster. Eleven (14 percent) were ambiguous, but were only classified as such for lack of explicit language. Reading between the lines, most of these were clearly also pro–regime change. Another 11 (14 percent) took no position, but many similarly offered ideological ammo for those in support.

Myths About Britain's 'Finest Hour'

There's a myth now about the British hanging together in those dark days [of 1939-1941]. "London can take it," Ed Murrow told America in his CBS broadcasts. Actually, morale was appalling. Most people correctly had little confidence in the competence of their government and thought Germany was going to win. In the Channel Islands, which the Nazis did take over, the people greeted them hospitably and turned in Jews with zest. The British Ministry of Information employed 10,000 people to read people's mail surreptitiously, intercepting about 200,000 letters a week, and discovered that people were deeply pessimistic, and thought Churchill was "played out."

America's Will to War: The Turning Point

Were the Founding Fathers somehow to return, they would find it impossible to recognize our political system. The major cause of this transformation has been America's involvement in war and preparation for war over the past hundred years. War has warped our constitutional order, the course of our national development, and the very mentality of our people ... The turning point was signaled by a series of military adventures: the war with Spain, the war for the conquest of the Philippines, and, finally, our entry into the First World War. Together, they represented a profound break with American traditions of government.

Jimmy Carter: US ‘Most Warlike Nation in History of the World’

The only US president to complete his term without war, military attack or occupation has called the United States "the most warlike nation in the history of the world." During his regular Sunday school lesson at Maranatha Baptist Church in his hometown of Plains, Georgia, Jimmy Carter revealed that he had recently spoken with President Donald Trump about China ... Carter then said the US has been at peace for only 16 of its 242 years as a nation ... Carter then referred to the US as "the most warlike nation in the history of the world," a result, he said, of the US forcing other countries to "adopt our American principles." China's peace dividend has allowed and enhanced its economic growth, Carter said.

Scott Adams: The “Fine People” Hoax Funnel

After a few years of trying to deprogram people from this hoax, I have discovered a fascinating similarity in how people’s brains respond to having their worldview annihilated in real time. I call it the “fine people” hoax funnel. When you present the debunking context to a believer in the hoax, they will NEVER say this: “Gee, I hadn’t seen the full quote. Now that I see it in its complete form, it is obvious to me that my long-held belief is 100% wrong and the media has been duping me.”

That doesn’t happen.

COMING TO AMERICA: THE COMPLETE DE-PLATFORMING OF ALL VOICES THAT DON’T WORSHIP DEMOCRATS

This article was originally published by JD Heyes at Natural News.

The Democrat Party has joined the globalist Left in their quest to wipe out all remaining bastions of freedom and liberty throughout the West which, if they are successful, will plunge the world into chaos, war, and destruction.

In Europe, freedom fighters like Tommy Robinson and Carl Benjamin are fighting Leftists in Britain and throughout the European Union as they attempt to build political opposition to what is very obviously an anti-libertarian and anti-democratic campaign of suppression and censorship.

Robinson, demonized by the European Left as a “far-right extremist” who has been attempting to speak the truth about the virtual invasion of anti-Western Muslim “refugees” from war-torn segments of the Middle East, was jailed in 2018 for essentially expressing his views.

Police Arrive at Venezuelan Embassy in Washington With Handcuffs, Block Entrance

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) - US law enforcement officials blocked off the entrance of the Venezuelan Embassy in Washington on Tuesday amid ongoing protests over the handling of the crisis in the Latin American country, a Sputnik correspondent reported from the embassy.

About 30 policemen with handcuffs arrived at the Venezuelan Embassy, which has been occupied by activists for more than two weeks, blocking the entrance from 30th Street.

The goal of the protesters is to prevent US-backed opposition figure Juan Guaido and his so-called government from taking possession of the building.

he situation in front of the embassy has been exacerbated amid tensions in the Venezuelan capital Caracas, where Juan Guaido released a video on Tuesday morning with a call on the country's military to join in the final stage of his so-called "Operation Freedom" from the La Carlota military base with the goal of ending the “usurpation of power” by President Maduro.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Somehow, I don't think that Trump's "Venezuela Gambit", is going particularly well for him today, which could have engendered the threat of a boycott of Cuba.

US Navy Sailors Told to Clap Like They’re ‘at a Strip Club’ for Pence - Reporter

Before US Vice President Mike Pence took the podium to address the sailors of the USS Harry S. Truman Tuesday, the members of the armed forces were reportedly given particularly puzzling instruction on how to welcome the VP.

On Tuesday afternoon, Pence traveled to Norfolk Naval Base in Norfolk, Virginia, to deliver a message from US President Donald Trump while also recognizing the 2,000-plus missions the USS Harry S. Truman and its 7,500 sailors have been a part of in the past year.

The vice president, via Twitter following his address, particularly applauded the the Truman Carrier Strike Group's "essential part" in crippling Daesh.

Prior to Pence's speech, however, it was an order regarding service members' applause that took Twitter by storm.

According to WTKR-TV reporter Brendan Ponton, US Navy sailors toward the rear of the address were given a particular set of instructions in clapping for the veep.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So now, our soldiers have a "Clap Protocol" which they must follow, upon listening to whatever speech any dignitary from the White House is giving?!?

Bolton: All Options Are on the Table Regarding Venezuela

Venezuelan Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza said earlier in the day that the United States had signed off on an attempted coup in Venezuela by calling on the country's armed forces to support the opposition parliament.

During a speech at the White House, US National Security Adviser John Bolton said that all options were on the table regarding the current situation in Venezuela.

"We want as our principal objective a peaceful transfer of power," Bolton said. "But I will say again: [Venezuela's President] Nicolas Maduro and those supporting him, particularly those who are not Venezuelans, should know that all options are on the table."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

NO, Security Advisor Bolton, you do not care about a "a peaceful transfer of power;" what you care about is getting those oil reserves in Venezuela under American control, and selling them only for the American dollar.

LIVE UPDATES: Situation in Venezuela as Guaido Calls on Troops to Oust Maduro

Venezuelan opposition leader and self-proclaimed Interim president of the country, Juan Guaido, published a video in which he urged soldiers to join protests against President Nicolas Maduro in order to oust him.

The footage shows Guaido, surrounded by people in military uniform, claiming that he has already received the support of the Venezuelan Army, going on to call for the "final phase" of the protests. The politician stressed that the people of Venezuela would be fighting "in a nonviolent struggle" to "assume [the] competencies of the government"

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good luck on THAT, Guaido!

A New Mega Cartel Is Emerging In Oil Markets

china and India—two of the world’s largest oil importers and the biggest demand growth centers globally—are close to setting up an oil buyers’ club to have a say in the pricing and sourcing of crude oil amid OPEC’s cuts and U.S. sanctions on Iran and Venezuela, Indian outlet livemint reports, citing three officials with knowledge of the talks.

This is not the first time that the two major oil importers are working to create such an oil club.

India and China have discussed creating an ‘oil buyers’ club’ to be able to negotiate better prices with oil exporting countries and will be looking to import more U.S. crude oil in order to reduce OPEC’s sway, both over the global oil market and over prices, India’s Petroleum Ministry said in June 2018.

5 Reasons To Be Concerned That The Federal Government Will Borrow $990 Billion This Year

Authored by Mac Slavo via SHTFplan.com

No one seems to care that a government already over $22 trillion in debt is on schedule to borrow another $990 million this year. All of this is occurring as individual Americans further enslave themselves with higher debt loads and retail stores fail over the inability to pay back the money they borrowed. But there are many reasons to be concerned about government spending.

The debt-based system we live under won’t sustain itself forever. Don’t get us wrong, the sociopaths in government and at the Federal Reserve (central bankers) will prop it up for as long as possible, but it is doomed to fail. That $22 trillion doesn’t include unfunded liabilities either, making the situation even uglier.

The Real "Bombshells" Are About To Hit Their Targets

The next bombshell report to drop from the Justice Department likely will earn none of the breathless fanfare and media coverage that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report received, but it could be far more incriminating.

In the next several weeks, Inspector General Michael Horowitz is expected to issue his summation of the potential abuse of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act by top officials in the Obama Administration and holdovers in the early Trump Administration who were overseeing the investigation of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.

And the perpetrators of the so-called FISAgate scandal now are scrambling for cover as the bad news looms.

Venezuela Coup? "Live Fire" Exchanged Outside Contested Air Base, Armored Car Plows Into Protesters

update 5: As predicted, what Guaido dubbed “Operation Liberty” — a full on coup attempt for which he appealed for Venezuela's military to rise up against Maduro — appears to have failed to achieve significant momentum, given Caracas officials are taking to the air waves to declare the "mediocre" coup attempt successfully put down.

“A mediocre coup d'etat attempt has failed,” said defense minister Vladimir Padrino on a state radio broadcast Tuesday afternoon, following prior statements saying he was ready put down the rebellion by force. And in a television appearance Padrino further called the day's events "ridiculous".

Meanwhile national security advisor John Bolton has stated this is "not a coup" given that the US already sees opposition leader Juan Guaido as the country's president. Bolton said of the rapidly unfolding and increasingly violent events that "it is not a coup for Juan Guaido to try and take command of the Venezuelan military."

Donald J. Trump
?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

No, Mr. President: this country does NOT stand for the Freedom of the Venezuelan people; it stands for controlling their massive oil reserves, and insuring that Venezuela's oil will only be sold for US dollars.

I have heard the soundbite "Everything is on the table", floated as a description of further potential ways for the US to get Maduro out of power, whatever they may be.

War against Venezuela for its oil?!?

Right now, I would not bet against it.

But were I in the Pentagon "war room", I would have to ask; "If we invade, what will Russia, which already has troops in position, decide to do?"

This could get ugly, quickly, and in ways for which the US government perhaps has not either thought through, or didn't consider: and that, folks, is what concerns me most.

The War on Syria Continues. Iran Is Next?

The war on Syria is not over. Western -supported terrorists still occupy Idlib, as well as al Tanif, and strategic resource-rich areas East of the Euphrates. The Al- Rukban concentration camp[1] still holds about 40,000 desperate and dying captives, and the Al-Hawl camp[2] holds 73,000 captives.

The West’s terrorists are expendable, but the West supports them all, including al Qaeda, ISIS, and the YPG/SDF terrorists.

Under the familiar pretense of “going after ISIS”, the Western coalition carpet bombed Raqqa, shipped ISIS out, and re-occupied the ruins with SDF proxies – occupiers posing as liberators.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am hoping and praying that the US, and Israeli governments , will not be so stupid as to believe, for one second, that they can conquer Iran, either militarily, or with some form of regime change.

If Russia thinks, for one second, that Iran is headed toward a crisis, my bet would be under threat from harm, they may immediately start propping up Iran with their own military and weaponry.

As we have seen from incredible performances by Russian military and their weaponry in Syria, the Russians have both the person-power,and weapons, to keep the Israelis and US forces at bay.

Blame Palestinians for GazaIsrael is the perpetual victim

If you have read a recent New York Times op-ed entitled “Care about Gaza? Blame Hamas” written by none other than the White House “special representative for international negotiations” Jason Greenblatt you would understand that the misery being experienced by Palestinians in Gaza is all their own fault. Greenblatt, who is Jewish of the Orthodox persuasion, just happens to be a strong supporter of Israel’s settlements, which he claims are “not an obstacle to peace.” He is very upset because some naysayers are actually putting some of the blame for the human catastrophe in Gaza on Israel, which we Americans all know is our best friend in the whole world and our most loyal ally. If that were not so, the New York Times and those fine people in Congress and the White House would surely inform us otherwise. And anyway, what are a few lies and war crimes between friends?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What Kushner and Greenblatt are pathologically incapable of realizing, (or just flat don't want to), is that for the Palestinians, this is not an issue about money; it is an issue of homeland, where generations of their ancestors once lived.

And money... even as attractively as I am sure the White House and Tel Aviv are spinning this proposal...is no compensation for Palestinians who cannot forget their history, or their homelands.

Pompeo: Helping Saudis Attack Yemen Is In America’s Best Interests

With the Senate planning this week to “process” President Trump’s veto of the War Powers Act challenge to the Yemen War, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo took the reins to try to defend US involvement in Yemen as in America’s best interest.

Pompeo’s argument centered on the idea that the US was obliged to help Saudi Arabia defend itself from retaliatory fights, now that the Saudis had launched a war and provoked that retaliation.

On top of that poor argument for an obligation, Pompeo relied on what the administration seems to believe is the most compelling argument, even if it is wholly based on a lie. He argued that the whole war was Iran’s fault, and not intervening would make Iran happy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Instead of Secretary of State, Pompeo is actually the US Government's Secretary For Fact-Free Churlish Propaganda or (SFFFCP, for short).

And this guy blames Iran for this senseless, horrific war, where everything the Saudis are doing are war crimes, which the US military and Executive Branches of the US have enabled?!? And no serious commenters on the situation have ever stated that a military victory was possible for the Saudis?!?

And this man was whore enough for the military industrial Complex, that he has lied to Congress about the real use of Saudi Purchased weapons, last September?!?
Pompeo lied to Congress about Yemen to protect arms sales

Congress; please be aware; he lied to you before, to let those weaons sales go through back in September; he is lying to you right now about the "reason" we must keep being complicit in Saudi war crimes in Yemen.

Where in the name of heaven, does Donald Trump find such rapacious bottom feeders, as Bolton and Pompeo?!?

The truth is, it's easy in DC.

Just look for those with a proven track record on their willingness to lie about any country's leadership, to cause the US to go to war against it for those resources, and to conquer other countries which are blessed with intense national resources, as is happening in the Middle East with Iran; in South America, with Venezuela; and in Africa, which also has an abundance of natural resources. The US (sometimes) gets what it wants, and insures that whatever those resources are, that they are only sold in American dollars.

Then, think about the money your government paid to unseat the legally elected President of Ukraine, Yanukovytch; that was 5 billion dollars, US, folks, in 2014 United States spent 5 billion for regime change in Ukraine

Now think about how much more the US government would spend to conquer Iran and/or Venezuela, if they thought they had the best chances for regime change in those countries?!? And how many more American service members will have to die, or be maimed for life, for a potential positive outcome for the US?!?

Venezuela ... has done absolutely nothing to us, and neither has Yemen; Iran makes noises about doing something, but must likely will not do anything against the United States, particularly with Putin advising President Hassan Rouhani on international affairs.

Protesters are run over by Maduro's armored vehicles as gunfire breaks out, sending civilians running for cover after Juan Guaido calls for military uprising, sparking clashes with pro-regime troops 

Juan Guaido called for uprising against Nicolas Maduro on Tuesday from the La Carlota airbase in Caracas
Guaido made the announcement surrounded by troops who then began setting up a defensive perimeter
Maduro's forces fired tear gas before a heavy exchange of gunfire, with protesters caught in the middle
US, which backs Guaido, said President was aware while Putin, backing Maduro, was in talks with top officials.

Video footage has emerged showing President Nicolas Maduro's troops running over anti-government protesters during clashes with the Venezuelan National Guard.

Armoured vehicles operated by soldiers loyal to the besieged president were seen ploughing into demonstrators in front of La Carlota base in Caracas.

Heavy gunfire crackled through the Venezuelan capital on Tuesday after opposition leader Juan Guaido called for a military uprising to oust President Maduro.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please remember, as all of the presstitutes have been given their orders to present this to the public as a "completely indigenous protest", when it has all the earmarks of a US-led psych-ops.

Juan Guaido, Designated US puppet in Venezuela
The Making of Juan Guaido: how the US "Regime change" Laboratory created Venezuela coup leader

The article goes on to state: "Before the fateful day of January 22, fewer than one in five Venezuelans had heard of Juan Guaidó. Only a few months ago, the 35-year-old was an obscure character in a politically marginal far-right group closely associated with gruesome acts of street violence. Even in his own party, Guaidó had been a mid-level figure in the opposition-dominated National Assembly, which is now held under contempt according to Venezuela’s constitution.

But after a single phone call from US Vice President Mike Pence, Guaidó proclaimed himself as president of Venezuela. Anointed as the leader of his country by Washington, a previously unknown political bottom dweller was vaulted onto the international stage as the US-selected leader of the nation with the world’s largest oil reserves."

Echoing the Washington consensus, the New York Times editorial board hailed Guaidó as a “credible rival” to Maduro with a “refreshing style and vision of taking the country forward.” The Bloomberg News editorial board applauded him for seeking “restoration of democracy” and the Wall Street Journal declared him “a new democratic leader.” Meanwhile, Canada, numerous European nations, Israel, and the bloc of right-wing Latin American governments known as the Lima Group recognized Guaidó as the legitimate leader of Venezuela"

So, that is what we have here in Guaido; a guy schooled in "regime change", just so those in the bowels of DC ultimately control Venezuela's oil, and the method of payment for that oil, if in fact, this "Cu Cu KaCHOO" is successful.

But please remember the following; Russia has troops on the ground in Venezuela; the US came with too little too late, to prevent them from being there, at Maduro's invitation. So one has to wonder, just what their orders are?!? To keep Maduro and his family safe at all costs, and at all times??!?

One of DC's "supremely self-reinventing lower-octave bottom feeders", John Bolton, has made his statement today, that the Venezuelan people, and its military, "had" to back Guaido, and by doing that, will preserve the Venezuelan Constitution; Bollix and Codswallop, I say!!

This is about the money, and about the oil, in one of the world's most sublimely gifted countries when it comes to reserves. As Google states, "The proven oil reserves in Venezuela are recognized as the largest in the world, totaling 297 billion barrels (4.72×1010 m3) as of 1 January 2014."

Remember how Victoria Nuland bragged about how much money the US spent to get "regime change" in Ukraine?!? United States spent 5 billion dollars to achieve "Regime Change" in Ukraine which, ultimately, proved a stupid thing for it to have done, given the performance of their "anointed Savoir", Poroshenko, in the last election, where he got professionally "creamed" by a Comedian, who just won the Ukrainian election by a huge majority.Volodymyr Zelenskiy wins Ukrainian election by a landslide

How much do you think the US government is willing to spend on "regime change" in Venezuela, to get its hands around that oil?!? Many, many more billions, friends; while our Vets sleep rough in our streets, and US infrastructure is crumbling around us?

Remember; American political system is solely driven by its members' lust for money, to be made off the backs of American working people, or conquering other countries; the situation unfolding in Venezuela proves the truth of that last statement.

And a little companion piece to this last bit, also from blacklistednews.com:

WITH GUN BAN NOT WORKING, POLITICIANS IN BRITAIN NOW WANT TO BAN KNIVES NATIONWIDE

If ever we needed proof of the expression that "guns don’t kill people, people kill people" look no further than Britain, where families may have to start practicing cutting their steak and bread at dinner with a spoon. This is, of course, because Britain's politicians have now made the absurdly ridiculous move to call for the banning of what Reason magazine called "the most useful tool ever invented" - the knife.

Reason reported this morning that British politicians have "declared war on knives" and are moving swiftly to try and ban them, since gun laws aren't working to help stop crime altogether:

Having failed to disarm criminals with gun controls that they defy, British politicians are now turning their attention to implementing something new and different: knife control. Because criminals will be much more respectful of knife laws than of those targeted at firearms, I guess.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am thoroughly reminded of Ron White's line about "You can't fix stupid", which is the way the British Government is trying to handle this issue.

So, soon in the UK, will Chefs' carving knives have to come with a permit?!?

One might imagine so.

Will there be "instructional videos on "how to carve meat with a plastic spoon?!? One might imagine that as well.

And will grocery stores only be allowed to send meat ground, even lamb chops and spare ribs?!?

Right now, in the UK, I wouldn't bet against it.

London's Mayor Sadiq Khan, has been such an horrendous disappointment to the British people, that if he stands again for election in this capacity, I would almost bet on a Conservative candidate trouncing on him, and winning handily.

The New Yorker Interviews Former Nat’l Security Director on How 5G is “Terrifying”: Cybersecurity, “Previously Unthinkable Surveillance Potential,” and Health Risks

By B.N. Frank

The New Yorker published an article yesterday – “The Terrifying Potential of the 5G Network.”

In 2018, Robert Spalding’s job as senior director for strategic planning at the National Security Council included studying ways to insure that 5G can be made secure from cyberattacks. He seemed more than qualified for the job. In his interview with The New Yorker, he provides intricate details of why we should all be freaking out over 5G regardless of who installs it. His warnings also go beyond cybersecurity risks...

BOEING CHANGES ITS STORY, ADMITS 'SOFTWARE GLITCH' DISABLED CRITICAL ALERTS ON 737 MAX

In a clarification that only created more confusion, Boeing said Monday that an alert intended to notify pilots when the plane might be receiving erroneous data from one of the 737 MAX 8's 'angle of attack' sensors wasn't disabled intentionally, as WSJ reported on Sunday, but that the feature had been disabled because of a previously undisclosed software glitch.

What's confusing is that Boeing had confirmed WSJ's story that the aerospace company had neglected to tell the FAA and Southwest, the biggest customer for the 737 MAX 8, that the alert feature had been disabled because it had been made a new 'optional' safety feature. The alerts would have warned pilots that the plane's MCAS system might be about to misfire.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This admission may well put Boeing into bankruptcy, for their software engineers to make such a completely bone-headed decision, and have it be completely supported by upper management.

Of course, the monied rarely eat their own, so when this issue goes to trial, it will probably result in a " money junkie slap on the wrist" for their chief executives.

REDUCTION OF GAZA FISHING ZONE AN 'ILLEGAL COLLECTIVE PUNISHMENT'

A decision by the Israeli military to scale down the permitted fishing zone in the besieged Gaza Strip comes as "no surprise" to the enclave's 4,000 fishermen.

"The decision did not come as a surprise. The occupation always backs down from agreements that affect fishermen in the strip," Zakaria Bakr, head of Gaza's fishermen's union, told Al Jazeera.

Citing an alleged rocket attack, the Israeli army said on Tuesday fishing in Gaza would only be permitted up to six nautical miles (11km) until further notice.

The move came after Israel extended the zone to a maximum of 15 nautical miles on April 1 as part of an Egypt-brokered ceasefire agreement between Israel and Hamas, the group that governs the Gaza Strip.

The decision was in response to a rocket fired by the Islamic Jihad group late on Monday, the Israeli army said in a statement on Tuesday, an allegation the Palestinian group denies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel doesn't want to be seen as a killer of Palestinians, one by one, as the optics of such an act would be frightful; but having Palestinians slowly starving in Gaza, quietly, because of this restriction?!?

Now, THAT is something the Knesset can really get behind!!!!!

CALIFORNIA TAP WATER COULD BE SOURCE OF THOUSANDS OF NEW CANCER CASES – STUDY

An alarming new study has found that drinking tap water in California over a lifetime could significantly increase your risk of developing cancer, and may have already contributed to more than 15,500 cases.
The state’s drinking water is contaminated with chemicals like arsenic, hexavalent chromium and radioactive elements such as uranium and radium, according to researchers at the Environmental Working Group (EWG) who published their findings in the journal Environmental Health on Tuesday.

The team tested 2,737 different public water systems across California as part of their research, which served 98 percent of the state’s population. The researchers then calculated the cancer risk by establishing the average contaminant levels between 2011 to 2015, and adding them together to create a lifetime risk.

BOLTON CALLS ON VENEZUELAN MILITARY TO ‘PROTECT THE CONSTITUTION’ BY BACKING GUAIDO COUP ATTEMPT

US National Security Advisor John Bolton called on Venezuela’s military to side with Washington protégé Juan Guaido, after the opposition leader declared a military coup in Caracas on Tuesday.
Bolton, one of the leading US figures in the operation to topple the Venezuelan government, called on Defense Minister Vladimir Padrino to side with Guaido, claiming this would protect Venezuela’s constitution.

.@vladimirpadrino: The FANB must protect the Constitution and the Venezuelan people. It should stand by the National Assembly and the legitimate institutions against the usurpation of democracy. The United States stands with the people of Venezuela.

— John Bolton (@AmbJohnBolton) April 30, 2019
Padrino earlier rejected Guaido as a traitor and said on Twitter that the national armed forces (FANB) were loyal to the legitimate President Nicolas Maduro.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The whole world knows what the US wants out of this; massive access to Venezuela's oil reserves, particularly those found in the Orinoco coastal planes.Venezuelan oil reserves in the Orinoco peninsula

And Mr. Bolton, just stop talking, please; your opening your mouth and attempting to justify this coup, is so rottenly hypocritical, that it is making a huge number of Americans collectively nauseous, right before breakfast.

This is NOT about protecting the Venezuela Constitution, and you know it damned well.

It is about access to, control of, and making sure that Venezuela's oil reserves are only sold in American dollars.

Do you really think that you can continue to lie to the American people, and get away with it, after Bush's debacle on "Saddam's nuclear weapons of mass destruction"?!??

Wrong is what most of thinking people in this country understand you to be, on nearly every foreign policy decision you make; but wrong, AND colossally stupid at the same time, sir?

THAT... is a bridge too far, Mr. Bolton.

And BTW, just what are the orders of the Russian troops, already in Venezuela?!?Perhaps, to protect President Maduro from harm at all times?!?

You, sir, have, almost single-handedly, have created a trap for American military either already in Venezuela, or positioned to go, at a moment's
notice; this will be a war of attrition in an environment where the American military historically doesn't do anywhere near as well as they do in a desert environment.

Congratulations, for creating the 21st century's Vietnam, Mr. Bolton; you must be, as always, amply proud of yourself for these decisions, leading the US to the brink of war in Venezuela, and potentially Russia.

FLASHBACK - How The Guardian told me to steer clear of Palestine

I very much enjoyed contributing to The Guardian. Having previously worked for quite a stuffy publication, it felt liberating to be able to express opinions.

There was one issue, however, on which I felt my freedom curtailed: Palestine. Although The Guardian did publish a few of my articles denouncing Israeli atrocities, I began to encounter obstacles in 2009.

Blame Palestinians for Gaza

If you have read a recent New York Times op-ed entitled “Care about Gaza? Blame Hamas” written by none other than the White House “special representative for international negotiations” Jason Greenblatt you would understand that the misery being experienced by Palestinians in Gaza is all their own fault. Greenblatt, who is Jewish of the Orthodox persuasion, just happens to be a strong supporter of Israel’s settlements, which he claims are “not an obstacle to peace.” He is very upset because some naysayers are actually putting some of the blame for the human catastrophe in Gaza on Israel, which we Americans all know is our best friend in the whole world and our most loyal ally. If that were not so, the New York Times and those fine people in Congress and the White House would surely inform us otherwise. And anyway, what are a few lies and war crimes between friends?

'VERY FAST TO SHOOT': 911 CALL AFTER OFFICER AMBER GUYGER KILLED BOTHAM JEAN HAS BEEN LEAKED

Dallas, TX — It has been months since off-duty Dallas police officer Amber Guyger walked into the apartment of Botham Jean and killed him. Since then, police have refused to release any pertinent details in regards to the case, including the 911 call made by Guyger after she killed Jean. However, WFAA news was somehow able to obtain a copy of that recording and it is now public.

For the first time, the entire 911 call has been published online. Up until now, only police have had access to it. Not even Jean’s family has been allowed to hear it.

As TFTP reported, Amber Guyger was off duty but still in uniform when she entered Botham Jean’s apartment and shot him in cold blood. She claims she accidentally went into the wrong apartment and thought she saw an intruder. However, the attorney for the Jean family — after listening to the 911 recording — pointed out how fast she shot Jean after entering, claiming she didn’t have time to even question the “intruder.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Being off-duty did not bar this officer from shooting an innocent man here, and not even in her own apartment; my sympathies are with Botham Jean's families, and I hope that the individual judgement goes to that family, and that the police department gets hammered for a very large settlement, even though money can never compensate for losing a loved one.

Because until police departments all over this country start training their officers in "reasonable restraint", incidents like this are going to continue to occur.

Here on Oahu, we are blessed that our police are reasonable and polite, and do not frequently make this kind of horrific blunder, which resolves in death.

FAKE HATE: Jewish Family 'Staged' Antisemitic Attack Against Themselves, Vandalized Own Business

What looked like an anti-Semitic attack at a Winnipeg cafe that drew public concern and political condemnation was not a hate crime but an alleged sham staged by owners of the business, police said Wednesday.

Officers responded last Thursday to a report that a woman who worked at the BerMax Caffe and Bistro was assaulted and that the business was vandalized and spray-painted with hate-related graffiti. It was the night before Passover.

After a lengthy investigation involving 25 officers and 1,000 hours of investigative work, police said they charged the three owners of the cafe — including the woman who was reportedly assaulted — with public mischief.

New York Times apologizes again for 'offensive' Trump, Netanyahu cartoon that 'included anti-Semitic tropes'

View image on Twitter

New York Times Opinion

We apologize for the anti-Semitic cartoon we published. Here’s our statement.

"We are deeply sorry for the publication of an anti-Semitic political cartoon last Thursday in the print edition of The New York Times that circulates outside of the United States, and we are committed to making sure nothing like this happens again," the opinion section tweeted Sunday.

"Such imagery is always dangerous, and at a time when anti-Semitism is on the rise worldwide, it's all the more unacceptable," continued the apology, which was widely shared on Twitter.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To the editorial staff of the NYT:

Dear all; yes, I understand why you apologised.

But having said that, is there any place at your table, where one can objectively talk about what is really happening between the US and Israel, under President Trump's watch, where sheer logic could never be construed as being "anti-Semitic?!?

Fact: Israel is the largest recipient of US foreign aid.

US Foreign Aid to Israel

the article goes on to state:

This report provides an overview of U.S. foreign assistance to Israel. It includes a review of past
aid programs, data on annual assistance, and analysis of current issues. For general information
on Israel, see CRS Report RL33476, Israel: Background and U.S. Relations, by Jim Zanotti.
Israel is the largest cumulative recipient of U.S. foreign assistance since World War II. To date,
the United States has provided Israel $134.7 billion (current, or noninflation-adjusted, dollars) in
bilateral assistance and missile defense funding. Almost all U.S. bilateral aid to Israel is in the
form of military assistance, although in the past Israel also received significant economic
assistance.
At a signing ceremony at the State Department on September 14, 2016, representatives of the
U.S. and Israeli governments signed a new 10-year Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on
military aid covering FY2019 to FY2028. Under the terms of the MOU, the United States pledges
to provide $38 billion in military aid ($33 billion in Foreign Military Financing grants plus
$5 billion in missile defense appropriations) to Israel. This MOU replaces a previous $30 billion
10-year agreement, which runs through FY2018.
Israel is the first international operator of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, the Department of
Defense’s fifth-generation stealth aircraft, considered to be the most technologically advanced
fighter jet ever made. To date, Israel has purchased 50 F-35s in three separate contracts.

With all that money spent, one would think that Israel would be doing everything possible to keep relationships with its neighboring countries stable, and at least, show a little bit of gratitude in that manner to the US government.

Fact: Israel has a real difficulty with "getting along" with most of its neighbors, particularly if they have oil (like Iran), or water(as does Lebanon), and its politicians are consistently screaming at the US to "do something" about their allegedly impossible neighbors, before they "go it alone." (which will only happen when pigs discover they are aerodynamic).

Fact: when Sheldon Adelson gave President Trump all those millions to get elected Adelson reportedly watch the election with Trump, President Trump understood what the quid pro quo was; to declare Jerusalem the capital of Israel (which he did), and second, create a "Middle East Deal" which offered no "right of return" for the Palestinians. The first demand, Netanyahu got; and our current understanding is that Jared Kushner, Trump's son in law, is working on that "deal" for mid-East Peace.

Fact: were I living in Iran right now, I would be very nervous, as President Trump has declared "no waivers" would continue past 2 May for countries which had been buying Iranian oil, in order to attempt to destroy Iran's economy. This includes China, and all the other countries which may not pay attention to Trump's demand. We now have two US carriers in the Mediterranean Sea, allegedly to insure Russia "gets the message" of "no interference" 2 US Navy aircraft carriers are making a statement in the Mediterranean Sea.Color me very nervous about what lengths the US is willing to go, to make that happen.

Fact: if I lived in Syria right now, I would be more than a little bit nervous, because the White House and Pentagon have decided to leave troops here, and there is no definitive pullout schedule which has been released. US keeping +/- 200 troops in Syria.Thinking people have to ask, "Why?!? IS there going to be an attempted "de-cap strike" against Damascus, understanding that Russia's Putin has given Al Assad all the military "muscle power" it needed to have substantially, and pretty successfully, beaten back the (US Trained & funded) jihadis?!?

Fact: were I a Gazan Palestinian right now, I would be very nervous about the lengths Israel is willing to go, to achieve a complete exodus of the Palestinian people (to where, I cannot tell you, because neighboring countries are overflowing with refugees, and cannot take any more), and claim Gaza, the West Bank, and East Jerusalem, as solely Israeli.

As an American who cares about her country, I am very concerned about the dangerous territory to which the US/Israeli relationship is taking this country. Does it ever concern you, BTW, that the two Middle Eastern men by whom President Trump seems to be so thoroughly fascinated, are the two butchers in the Middle East, Prince bin Salman, the Butcher of Yemen, and Israel's Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, the Butcher of Gaza?!? And please don't tell me, that in this man's "heart of hearts", he hopes for a just and lasting peace between the Israelis and Palestinians; because with everything he has done, in his numerous terms as PM, he has done the polar opposite of attempting to create peace. He doesn't use the word "extermination" when talking about the Palestinians in Gaza, because he knows that the optics would be terrible; but some of his more rabid followers would have absolutely no problem with this.

I cannot foretell where these relationships is taking this country, but I can tell you this; something wicked this way comes.

And were I a betting woman, I would bet that Israel is pushing the US as hard as it thinks it can, to declare the devolution of the US's ongoing economic war in the region into a shooting war against all of its alleged existential enemies; we're talking about a war with Syria (which would, again, most likely include a war with Russia if not Russia and China); war against Iran (which will most likely, involve war with Russia and China)

To the Editors of the NYT, I have just expressed my fact-based opinion on what is going to happen here, and I am hoping that I am dead-wrong; but I have a very clear understanding of what Israel did to the USS Liberty, and then tried to "fake it" by wrongly accusing Egypt of the attack.

"False flag attacks" by both the Israeli and US military, are a common stock-in-trade they both use.

And if you have any members of your families serving the US militarily, please, as best you can, pray for them; because if what I see coming does come to pass, they -and their commanders, and the collective members of the US government - will need it. And I say this because, at this point in the the US's military history, they do not have the money, the troop strength, the manufacturing, or the weaponry to create a successful outcome to a war against either Russia and/or China.

Julian Assange exposed the crimes of powerful actors, including Israel

Wikileaks publisher Julian Assange has finally been imprisoned, an objective long sought by powerful parties he helped to expose over the past dozen years.

Assange’s “crime” was revealing deep, embarrassing, sometimes deadly, malfeasance by numerous actors, including the U.S. government, the media, the Democratic Party-Clinton machine, and Israel.

Wikileaks revealed the U.S. government’s cover up of torture, cruelty, the killing of civilians, spying on its own citizens and others. It exposed Democratic Party cheating and manipulation, the fraudulence of “Russiagate.” It unmasked Israeli plans to keep Gaza on the brink of collapse, to use violence against Palestinian nonviolence, to make war upon civilians. All of this will be detailed below.

Without Wikileaks’ exposés, many of these actions would quite likely have remained hidden from the general public, as the perpetrators hoped.

For NYT, Israel Is Always Nearing ‘Apartheid,’ but Never Quite Gets There

Following Benjamin Netanyahu’s re-election as Israeli prime minister earlier this month, the New York Times’ editorial board (4/11/19) wrote:

Under Mr. Netanyahu, Israel is on a trajectory to become what critics say will be an apartheid state like the former South Africa—a country in which Palestinians will eventually be a majority, but without the rights of citizens.

A harsh criticism? Actually, the paper has been saying that Israel/Palestine could “become” an apartheid state for the better part of two decades. It ran a piece in 2003 (1/29/03) arguing that

if Israel does not give up the territories, it will face a choice: relinquish either democracy or the ideal of a Jewish state. Granting Palestinians in the territories the right to vote would turn Israel into an Arab state with a Jewish minority. Not allowing them to vote would result in a form of permanent apartheid.

A quarantine order has been issued for hundreds of students and staff at two major Los Angeles universities – the University of California, Los Angeles, and California State University Los Angeles — who may have been exposed to measles and either have not been vaccinated or cannot verify that they have immunity.

UCLA reported that, as of Wednesday, there were 119 students and 8 faculty members were ordered to avoid contact with others. However, by Friday morning than number had fallen, with less than 50 staff and students yet to prove their immunization status. One student remained quarantined on campus.

BORDER PATROL RELEASING THOUSANDS OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS IN TUCSON

Via: AZ Central:

Border Patrol officials have begun releasing migrant families in Tucson because they lack the space to detain them and immigration officials are unable to take them into custody.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the agency that normally takes custody of asylum-seeking families once they have been processed, has continued releasing families in Tucson.

That includes migrants apprehended in the Tucson sector as well as migrants who crossed through the Yuma area. Pima County officials estimate that ICE has released about 7,000 migrants in Tucson in the past eight months.

On top of that, Border Patrol officials in El Paso have been busing hundreds of migrants each day to Tucson so they can be released there instead of El Paso, which has also been struggling greatly with the sheer number of migrant families.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF we DO NOT have an immigration crisis on the border, as some on the left have asserted, as though it were a fact, what about this huge number of illegal immigrants crossing into the US on a daily basis?!?

With the official Federal deficit in the US nearing 22 trillion, where, please, is the money to clothe, feed, house, educate and in general, take care of these people, who have very little to "bring to the table" in terms of job skills other than manual labor, which is going to be nearly extinct in a decade?!?

THE SECRET HISTORY OF AMERICA’S DEFEAT IN SYRIA

When the war in Syria was recently declared decisively over, there were few correspondents or witnesses to turn to for a credible look at exactly what happened during eight years of conflict. The questions were many, but I could count on one hand those worth putting them to. Among these was Sharmine Narwani, whose work I have long counted distinctly thorough and honest amid coverage that — in her view as well as mine — hit a new low by way of collapsed professional standards and abandoned ethics. Narwani’s pieces, written for a variety of publications, consistently reflect her hard work on the ground — work nearly no one else did. She is eyes wide open and beholden to no national interest or media slant.

You returned from Syria just last week — this after going in several times last year. The intervening months were important, given the war has just ended. What have you been seeing on the ground?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Color me very respectful about this woman's work, and in a war zone.

SUSPECTED UAE SPY WITH POSSIBLE TIES TO KHASHOGGI CASE FOUND DEAD IN TURKISH PRISON

One of two Emirati men detained in Turkey on suspicion of both spying and having possible ties to the Jamal Khashoggi embassy murder case has reportedly taken his own life in prison, according to government and media sources.
The man was arrested by Turkish authorities 10 days ago and was later formally charged with “military and political” and “international espionage.” He was found dead having apparently hanged himself in his cell in Silivri prison on the outskirts of Istanbul on Sunday.

Turkish authorities are now launching an investigation into the suspicious circumstances of the man’s death as he was being detained in solitary confinement.

The two men claimed they were Palestinian nationals but admitted to working on behalf of UAE intelligence, reports Al Jazeera. One of the two alleged UAE spies reportedly arrived in Turkey just two days after Khashoggi’s murder.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How "convenient" for Saudi Arabia, that this one "loose end" to the Kashoggi case, has been "neutralized".

SECRET UK MILITARY LAB GASSED, KILLED 48,400 ANIMALS IN 7 YEARS – REPORT

Around 48,400 animals, — namely pigs, monkeys, and guinea pigs — were killed in experiments conducted at the secret Porton Down laboratory in Wiltshire between 2007 and 2017, the Sunday Mirror reported. The Ministry of Defence supported the practice as being life-saving for British troops.

Porton Down reportedly tested experimental body armour by blasting animals covered in it with various explosives. It also tested poisonous substances, gases, and nerve agents on animals.

The news was not well received by animal rights groups, with Animal Aid slamming the experiments for causing “extreme suffering and death”, calling them morally unconscionable. The NGO stated that such experiments are unnecessary and noted that the number of killed animals is “alarming”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but 48,000 animals to be "sacrificed" in this manner, appears to be horrifically impossible to justify, unless, of course, the scientists doing these "experiments" happened to be avowed sadists as well.

WEALTHY ELITISTS FREAK OUT AS HORDES OF HOMELESS PEOPLE TAKE OVER THEIR NEIGHBORHOODS ALL OVER THE WEST COAST

The elite are very “tolerant” of the homeless until they start showing up in their own neighborhoods. Even though the mainstream media keeps telling us that the U.S. economy is “booming”, the number of Americans living on the streets continues to grow very rapidly, and this is particularly true in our major West Coast cities. More than half a million Americans will sleep on the streets of our cities tonight, and they need help, care and shelter. Sadly, as economic conditions deteriorate that number is likely to double or even triple. Of course many among the elite are all in favor of doing something for the homeless, as long as they don’t have to be anywhere around them.

For example, let’s talk about what is going on in Los Angeles. No city on the West Coast has a bigger problem with homelessness than L.A. does, and many in the homeless population enjoy camping out on the beautiful beaches in the L.A. area at night.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is a level of homelessness which is encouraged by Federal and State policies; and why?!?

It is allowed to keep the rest of the population terrified that if they speak out of turn, or criticize someone of something into which government has, again , injected itself, that they too may wind up homeless.

TOP CHICAGO PROSECUTOR SUBPOENAED OVER OFFICE'S DECISION TO DROP SMOLLETT CHARGES

Following a wave of departures from her office and an intensifying inspector general investigation into her handling of the Jussie Smollett case, where she dropped a 16-count felony indictment against the actor after he allegedly faked his own hate crime, one retired judge is turning up the heat on Kim Foxx, Chicago's state's attorney.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Foxx has been subpoenaed by ex-appellate Judge Sheila O’Brien to appear at a hearing over her handling of the case. The judge is pushing for the appointment of a federal prosecutor.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good.

When hate crimes happen in this country, it is like a smack in the face to Americans' understanding that liberty and justice for all.

But HOW this came down, with friends testifying that Smollett had "put them up to it", as a way of enhancing his value to the show, and insure that he was gong to be kept on it into the next season?!?

Sorry; this doesn't pass the smell test.

The measles outbreak is a massive false flag; nearly all outbreaks are caused by infected migrants, not American children

“Think about how cold-blooded it is, that the bureaucrats and the UN and the globalists that control our government, opened our borders and told the entire Third World, filled with diseases, to pour into our nation,” reports Alex Jones in a bombshell new video called “The Measles Outbreak is a Giant False Flag and Hoax.”

He continues:

Then the CDC reports from local health departments across the country that it’s the illegal aliens, called “migrants,’ that are spreading the measles, the mumps, the rubella, the pertussis, and all these record-level diseases hitting Europe and the United States… and then we’re told that those of us who haven’t taken the hundreds of mandated vaccines are to blame.

This whole thing is a false flag… the measles are real, but the admitted cause is the illegal aliens and the government not testing them at the border… this is outrageous and this is criminal… this is a national health emergency.

"You Have Nothing, But Money": Trump Says US Losing Its A** Defending Saudi Arabia

US President Donald Trump once again humiliated the regime in Riyadh, saying he likes the leader of Saudi Arabia, but Washington is protecting King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud and his son Mohammad bin Salman (MbS), therefore the oil-rich kingdom should pay more money.
“Look, Saudi Arabia, very rich country, we defend them, we subsidize Saudi Arabia. They have nothing but cash, right? We subsidize them. And they buy a lot from us, $450 billion they bought,” Trump said during a rally in Wisconsin on Saturday.

“You know, You had people wanting to cut off Saudi Arabia. They bought $450 billion. I don’t want to lose ‘em! But the military, we subsidize Saudi Arabia!”>>>

The one article you need to prove current US wars are lie-started Wars of Aggression not even close to lawful self-defense, war-murder millions, loot trillions, and require YOUR voice for .01% arrests

“It is no use trying to escape their arrogance by submission or good behavior. Robbers of the world, having by universal plunder exhausted the land, their drive is greed. If the enemy be rich, they are rapacious; if poor, they lust for domination. Neither rule of the East nor West can satisfy them. Alone among men, they crave with equal eagerness poverty and riches. To plunder, slaughter, seize with false pretenses, they give the lying name ‘empire.’ And where nothing remains but a desert, they call that ‘peace.’ ”
~ Tacitus, The Agricola and the Germania, on Roman Empire foreign wars in "self-defense" (analyses here, here)

Overview

The United States is the most dangerous illegal rogue state empire in human history, with escalating military armed attacks under President Trump.

Among the damning facts:
1. People around the world view the US as the greatest threat to peace; voted three times more dangerous than any other country.

Who Checks the Fact-checkers? Facebook Leaves Verification to Groups Funded by Soros, US Congress

By RT

In its crusade against ‘fake news’, Facebook has vowed to fight for impartiality. However, when it comes to fact-checking, it seems to rely on sources which have links to the US government and renowned political meddlers.

For more than two years, the social media giant has been seeking to convince the public that it does its best to take a stand against malicious disinformation spread through its network and presented a whole bunch of instruments aimed at revealing and countering false narratives.

It appears, though, that Facebook heavily relies on decisions taken by some third-parties in its ‘anti-disinformation’ policy...

BBC and Attenborough Accused of Fake News Misinformation on ‘Climate Change: The Facts’

As wags have quipped, the programme presented by Sir David Attenborough was so riddled with errors it really should have been called Climate: Change The Facts.

Now the GWPF has written to the BBC Complaints department listing just a few of them. The letter can be read here.

According to the GPWF, the programme “went far beyond its remit to present the facts about climate change, instead broadcasting a highly politicised manifesto in favour of renewable energy and unjustified alarm.”

Electric Cars Aren’t Nearly as Green as People Think

By Catherine Alles

For years, I’ve imagined how great it would be to own an electric car. Instead of spending almost 40 bucks every week or so on gas, I could just drop by my local outpost and charge my car while I buy organic vegetables.

Wouldn’t that be great? Not only for myself but also for the environment? Maybe not.

THE VETO: Exposing CNN, Al Jazeera, Channel 4, western media propaganda war in Syria

I met journalist and friend Rafiq Lutf and cameraman Abdul-Mun’aim Arnous in January 2018 and I was honoured when Rafiq asked me to work with him on his film project, The Veto.

As Dr Shaaban said to me in August 2016, “Western propaganda is paid for in Syrian blood”. This is true. The horrifying bloodshed and loss of life in Syria could never have happened without the colonial media manufacturing consent for another illegal war against a Sovereign nation.

The Veto tracks the evolution of the propaganda campaign waged by Western media against Syria. From Baba Amr in Homs 2011/2012 until the modern day “propaganda construct” – the NATO-member-state funded White Helmets.

Russia Catches Reuters in Cahoots With Pentagon to Peddle Venezuela Disinfo - Launches Criminal Proceedings

The Reuters news agency has published a retraction of an “exclusive” report on operations between the Venezuelan and Russian state oil companies, PDVSA and Rosneft, after disavowing the US-supplied source. Reuters has also acted after Rosneft applied for a criminal investigation of the media company’s operations in Russia by Moscow prosecutors.
