Media Disappointed To Learn Armed Citizen Stopped Mass Shooting

U.S.—The nation's media outlets announced they were grieving today as an armed citizen stopped a mass shooting.

"We grieve that this tragedy we could have exploited for weeks on end was stopped by a good guy with a gun," said one teary-eyed MSNBC reporter on the scene. "Our thoughts and prayers are with the shooter."

Which is Worse: The NSA or The FDA?

Release of Boeing 737 MAX safety warnings previously hidden from the FAA reveals how the FAA is run by Boeing just like the FDA is run by Big Pharma (and the CDC is run by the vaccine industry)

According to reports, a “new batch” of internal communications between Boeing employees recently came out that paints a “very disturbing picture” about the many serious problems with the design of the 737 MAX. These important details about the failed plane were never procured to the FAA prior to its approval, which means that Boeing knowingly and intentionally put profits before the lives of people.

Iraqi-US ties in jeopardy as Baghdad slams Washington over attack

US forces carried out airstrikes against five facilities belonging to Iraqi Shia militia group Kata’ib Hezbollah on Sunday, killing over two dozen people and injuring over 50 more following Friday’s deadly rocket attack on a US military base in northern Iraq.

Iraqi President Barham Salih has condemned the US airstrikes on Iraq’s Kata’ib Hezbollah militia movement, describing the strikes as “unacceptable,” the Iraqi News Agency has reported.

2019: A disastrous year for Trump’s foreign policy

Twenty-nineteen could best be described as a year when Donald Trump’s foreign policy unraveled on so many fronts. It became ever more erratic, one-sided and personalized, changing with the US president’s mood swings. The crisis, as many would call it, has been a long time in the making, and the implications will surely cast a long shadow over the new decade.

Trump, a self-proclaimed deal maker, is floundering as much internationally as he is domestically. The US, on his watch, arguably has less leverage with its allies than it has had at any time in modern history. Trump’s foreign policies—from the Middle East and North Korea to Venezuela— have largely failed

US under barrage of criticism over strikes in Iraq

"These attacks have once again proved America's false claims in fighting the Takfiri group of Daesh as the United States has targeted the positions of forces that over the years have inflicted heavy blows to Daesh terrorists," Mousavi said Monday.

"With these attacks, America has shown its firm support for terrorism and its disregard for the independence and sovereignty of countries and it must accept responsibility for the consequences of its illegal act," he said.

In a statement on Monday, Iraq's popular Hashd al-Sha'abi said the death toll from the US airstrikes had risen to 25, vowing to avenge the “aggression of evil American ravens.”

US Strategy and What the Gas Pipeline War Is Costing Us

Although they were locked in a convoluted struggle concerning the impeachment of President Trump, Republicans and Democrats in the Senate laid down their arms in order to vote, in quasi-unanimity, for the imposition of heavy sanctions on the companies participating in the construction of North Stream 2, the doubling of the gas pipeline which delivers Russian gas to Germany across the Baltic Sea. The main victims were the European companies which had helped finance the 11 billion dollar project with the Russian company Gazprom.

The project is now 80 % finished. The Austrian company Omy, British/Dutch Royal Dutch Shell, French Engie, German companies Uniper and Wintershall, Italian Saipem and Swiss Allseas are also taking part in the laying of the pipeline.

US Middle East Forever Wars

On Sunday, US warplanes terror-bombed sites in Iraq and Syria. It followed a rocket attack, killing a US private military contractor on a base where Pentagon troops are based near Kirkuk, Iraq, wounding US military personnel.

Iran had nothing to do with what happened. The US blamed Iraqi militants falsely linked to Iran.

In mid-December, Pompeo falsely blamed Iran for earlier rocket attacks on Pentagon bases in Iraq, threatening retaliation if US personnel and allies are killed or injured.

No evidence links Iran to hostile regional actions — US, NATO, Israeli, Saudi, UAE specialties, along with terrorist proxies they support.

Virginia Seized By Jewish Gun-Grabbers

By making possession of commonly-held firearms into Class 6 Felonies with five years’ imprisonment, Virginia law-makers are pressing to turn myriads of Virginians into felons.

While the newly-elected Democrat State legislators were financed by Michael Bloomberg, two other ignominious Jewish gun-grabbers especially stand out:

Dick Saslaw, Virginia State Senator and author of pending gun confiscation legislation.

Eileen Filler-Corn, Virginia State Speaker and notorious gun-control extremist.

Among their proposed draconian gun-control laws are mandatory background checks when ‘transferring’ a firearm to family members:

After U.S. Strike On Iraqi Forces Its Troops Will (Again) Have To Leave

Within Syria @WithinSyriaBlog - 17:43 UTC · Dec 29, 2019
Trump just made the mistake of his presidency.

That may be true or may be not true. Here is what happened.

On Friday a volley of some 30 107mm Katyusha rockets hit the K1 base which houses Iraqi and U.S. troops near Kirkuk, Iraq. One U.S. mercenary/contractor died, two Iraqi and four U.S. soldiers were wounded. Instead of finding the real culprits - ISIS remnants, disgruntled locals, Kurds who want to regain control over Kirkuk - the U.S. decided that Kata'ib Hizbullah was the group guilty of the attack.

The strikes were in total disregard of Iraqi sovereignty and against forces under direct command of the Iraqi state:The strikes were designed to kill those who still fight ISIS in its most virulent hide outs:

2019 ends and 2020 begins in a wave of antisemitism hysteria

By Carolyn Yeager

THE CHARGE OF ANTISEMITISM HAS BECOME THE PREFERRED CUDGEL used to beat the non-Jewish world into submission to Jewish demands. Ronald Lauder takes off the gloves

A brand new “antisemitism watchdog group” was also announced in December: the Antisemitism Accountability Project (ASAP), meant to provide action rather than simply 'talking about the problem'. It's funded with $25 million to start by Ronald S. Lauder, cosmetics billionaire and long-time president of the World Jewish Congress (pictured in his New York office below left).

The 'action' from the ASAP will be watching (“we are watching you”) for antisemitism in universities and college classrooms, monitoring for antisemitic pro-BDS bills as well as classes where professors or lecturers espouse antisemitism. Student snitches, Lauder said, will monitor the classrooms and if there are lecturers who engage in antisemitism, “We will go after their reputation.”

The Uyghur Issue: How Can the U.S. Dare Lecturing China About the Rights of the Muslims?

The majority of Uyghur people are Muslims. They have their own, ancient, specific culture and most of them are, of course, very decent human beings. Northwest China is their home.

The “problem” is that Urumqi, Xinjiang, are located on the main branch of BRI (The Belt and Road Initiative) – an extremely optimistic, internationalist project which is ready to connect billions of people on all continents. The BRI is infrastructural as well as cultural project, which will soon pull hundreds of millions of people out of poverty and under-development.

Therefore, Washington has decided to act, in order to preserve the status quo and its dominance over the world.

Step one: to antagonize, provoke and to smear China by all means, be it over Hong Kong, Taiwan, South China Sea or, above mentioned “Uygur Issue”.

Step two: to try to turn a part of China’s constitutionally-recognized national minority – Uyghurs – into “rebels”, or more precisely, terrorists.

USAF Is Spending Millions To Upgrade Turkey Bases Amid Turkish Threats To Kick Them Out

he U.S. Air Force has announced that it will pay eight different Turkish firms tens of millions of dollars to update the infrastructure and complete other construction projects at facilities it operates in that country over the next five years. This comes amid threats from Turkey's government, including from President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, to suspend or outright terminate American access to various bases in the country, including Incirlik Air Base, where the United States presently stores approximately 50 B61 nuclear bombs.

The Pentagon announced the Air Force deals, worth $95 million in total, in its daily contracting announcement on Dec. 23, 2019. The notice does not say how much each of the Turkish companies received. The Air Force only considered offers from local companies in accordance with the U.S.-Turkey Defense Economic Cooperation Agreement (DECA), which the two countries signed in 1980 and includes guarantees for Turkish participation in military construction projects.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

(sigh) With all the "agita" NATO and the US have received from the current Turkish government, why this deal was not suspended until President Edrogan "behaved himself", is a mystery to me.

Is it a little economic "sweetening of the pot" to get him to fall in line with NATO and US positions?!? Frankly, at this point, I am not sure they are correct in still offering this; time will tell.

Yemen's lifeline threatened by attacks on aid groups

International NGOs have suspended work in southwestern Yemen after weekend attacks by unknown fighters.

After almost five years of war, millions of Yemenis have become reliant on aid for survival, but they now fear they'll be cut off from this crucial lifeline after attacks on international aid groups operating in their country.

A number of international non-governmental organisations (INGOs) have suspended their work in Al-Dhale’e region after their offices were attacked with rocket-propelled grenades over the weekend.

The attacks in southwest Yemen follow a campaign carried out against the aid groups, accusing them of being "enemies of Islam" and using their work as a front for missionary work.

Fahd, a teacher who preferred not to use his real name, told Middle East Eye that they heard explosions on both Saturday and Sunday and later found out that the offices of several aid organisations were hit.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Even if they cannot name their attackers, Yemenis understand that this is the Saudi and US design intent; to starve the Yemeni people into submission, by taking away the last possible lifelines of food and medical care.

Intel probe puts CIA’s Haspel in a bind

The prosecutor appointed by Attorney General Bill Barr to examine the origins of the Russia investigation is focusing much of his attention on the CIA, placing the agency’s director, Gina Haspel, at the center of a politically toxic tug-of-war between the Justice Department and the intelligence community.

The prosecutor, John Durham, has reportedly asked the CIA for former director John Brennan’s communications as he examines the January 2017 Intelligence Community Assessment that concluded Russian President Vladimir Putin intervened in the election specifically to help Donald Trump.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What is the US Deep State going to do to distract the American people from this travesty of justice?!?

Most probably, shortly after the turn of the New Year the US Deep State will start a war with a false flag; they hope that this will mean that most Americans will have been distracted enough by said war, to not be paying attention to the internecine squabbles between Justice, CIA, and FBI, no matter the moral and ethical implications of these actions with which these highly politicised elements of these groups plotted to "Dump Trump" with the Russiagate fiasco.

LNA Says Set for Major Tripoli Battles After Taking Control of Roads to Capital's Airport

CAIRO (Sputnik) - The Libyan National Army (LNA) announced on Friday that it had taken control of roads leading to the Tripoli airport and was set for major battles for main areas of the Libyan capital.

The news comes a day after information surfaced that the rival Tripoli-based government has officially requested military aid from Turkey.

"The LNA is advancing after violent clashes on roads that lead to the center of the capital. The GNA retreated leaving bodies lying on the road to Tripoli airport", the LNA wrote on Facebook, as quoted by Al Arabiya.

LNA spokesman Ahmed Mismari, in turn, told the TV channel said that the next few hours would surprise all those following the developments in Libya, saying that the battle for Tripoli was ongoing.

Turkey is sending troops to support the NLA Turkey speeds up Libya troop deployment deal to prevent slide into 'chaos'

The story goes on to state: "Libya’s internationally recognized Government of National Accord (GNA) in Tripoli has been struggling to fend off General Khalifa Haftar’s forces, which have been supported by Russia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Jordan.

“If today Libya becomes like Syria, then the turn will come for the other countries in the region,” Turkey’s Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Saturday at a meeting of the governing AK Party."

And yes, you read that correctly; Russia is supporting Khalifa Haftar and his forces, along with the UAE, Egypt, and Jordan.

So what we could potentially be seeing here, is another proxy war between the US (the Government of National Accord, established by the UN) and Russia, which is supporting Haftar in Libya.

This could, potentially, get a lot more bloody than it already has been, and very quickly.

MEDIA’S DEAFENING SILENCE ON LATEST WIKILEAKS DROPS IS ITS OWN SCANDAL

WikiLeaks has published yet another set of leaked internal documents from within the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) adding even more material to the mountain of evidence that we’ve been lied to about an alleged chemical weapons attack in Douma, Syria last year which resulted in airstrikes upon that nation from the US, UK and France.

This new WikiLeaks drop includes an email from the OPCW Chief of Cabinet Sebastien Braha (who is reportedly so detested by organisation inspectors that they code named him “Voldemort”) throwing a fit over the Ian Henderson Engineering Assessment which found that the Douma incident was likely a staged event. Braha is seen ordering OPCW staff to “remove all traces, if any, of its delivery/storage/whatever” from the organisation’s secure registry.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is painfully apparent, that truth is of no use and value to those presstitutes in the west, when that truth does not "sell an agenda to legitimize more war."

At this point in the 21st century, I fully expect my government to lie to me, to attempt to make these hegemonic wars appear to be the normal course of events which, I as a loyal American, should support, but as a Christian pacifist activist, morally and spiritually, cannot, and will not.

War, in my world, is an absolute catastrophic failure of imagination, by those in the Bowels of Power in the US government, that they can find no other ways in which to achieve their geopolitical agendas.

And it is rarely children of the monied or powerful, who wind up coming home with physical or emotional traumas which cannot heal, or in a cheaply made coffin, topped by a US flag, made in China; it's the kids, relatives, and friends of the rest of us, who bear that fate.

And I will predict something here; I don't know if this will happen in 2020 or beyond that time-frame; I think that a draft is coming back in this country, because our troop strength has been very stretched with these intense deployments around the world.

And this time, the US government, will be coming for our daughters, as well as for our sons.

Media's Deafening Silence On The Biggest Scandal Of 2019 Is Chilling

The mass media’s stone-dead silence on the OPCW scandal is becoming its own scandal, of equal or perhaps even greater significance than the OPCW scandal itself. It opens up a whole litany of questions which have tremendous importance for every citizen of the western world; questions like, how are people supposed to participate in democracy if all the outlets they normally turn to to make informed voting decisions adamantly refuse to tell them about the existence of massive news stories like the OPCW scandal? How are people meant to address such conspiracies of silence when there is no mechanism in place to hold the entire mass media to account for its complicity in it? And by what mechanism are all these outlets unifying in that conspiracy of silence?

US Navy Chief Says Only ‘Regime Change’ in Iran Can Stop Country’s ‘Provocative Actions’ in Gulf

Russian and Chinese warships joined Iran’s Navy and Revolutionary Guards vessels on Friday for four days’ worth of maritime exercises in the Gulf of Oman and the northern Indian Ocean, simulating search and rescue, anti-piracy and shooting drills.

The US Navy is concerned that the recent lull in hostilities with Iran following this summer’s string of escalatory actions in the form of tanker sabotage attacks, ship seizures and drone shootdowns may be repeated, Acting Navy Secretary Thomas Modly has said.

“I think they’re going to continue to perform provocative actions over there,” Modly said, speaking to Reuters on Friday. “And I think they’ll look at every opportunity they can to do that,” he added, without offering any more details.

“There’s nothing that suggests to me, short of a regime change there, that you have a different tone set from the leadership, that would suggest to me that they’re going to stop doing what they’ve been doing,” Modly explained.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Major Modly, can you please produce something even remotely resembling the hard evidence, regarding Iran's alleged "provocations"?!?

Because for the US to go to war against Iran right now, or in the near future, is "inviting" a Russian retaliation through the deployment of their newest and most deadly weapon, against which the US and its allies have utterly no defense; the Avangard, which has recently been introduced to the Russian military.

"We Cannot Be Isolated": Iran Warns At Start Of Joint Naval Drills With Russia & China

This past year witnessed the United States nearly go to war with Iran in the Persian Gulf, after a summer of 'tanker wars' and the September Saudi Aramco attack, but now it appears the new year will witness a superpowers balancing act of sorts play out in the region.

FT reports of an unprecedented development in the gulf region:

Russia, China and Iran launched their first joint naval exercises in the Gulf of Oman on Friday in a direct challenge to US influence in the Middle East. The move reflects growing co-operation between the US’s two main rivals and the Islamic republic, which is under sanctions imposed by Washington.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is almost as though the US government desperately wants to start a war but have the blame for starting such a war laid squarely on the shoulders of the countries enumerated above; unfortunately "plausible deniability", seems to be the attitude of those involved with US Statecraft these days, rather than creating a cohesive foreign policy, where war is not invoked, but geopolitical wins are achieved through responsible, moral, and hard won negotiations.

Washington's Unmasked Imperialism Towards Europe And Russia

Washington must think the rest of the world is as stupid as many of its own politicians are. Its passing into law – signed by President Trump this week – of sanctions to halt the Nord Stream-2 and Turk Stream gas supply projects is a naked imperialist move to bludgeon the European energy market for its own economic advantage.

Russia, Germany and others have defiantly told Washington its weaponizing of economic sanctions will not halt the Nord Stream nor the Turk Stream projects.

As German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said earlier this month, “it is unacceptable” for the US to brazenly interfere in European and Russian energy trade. The American pretext of supposedly “protecting” the national security of its purported European allies is frankly laughable.

An American Oligarch's Dirty Tale Of Corruption

Authored by William Engdahl via LewRockwell.com,

Rarely does the world get a true look inside the corrupt world of Western oligarchs and the brazen manipulations they use to enhance their fortunes at the expense of the public good.

The following comes from correspondence of the Hungarian-born billionaire, now naturalized American speculator, George Soros. The hacker group CyberBerkut has published online letters allegedly written by Soros that reveal him not only as puppet master of the US-backed Ukraine regime.

They also reveal his machinations with the US Government and the officials of the European Union in a scheme where, if he succeeds, he could win billions in the plunder of Ukraine assets. All, of course, would be at the expense of Ukrainian citizens and of EU taxpayers.

Foreign Fighter 'Rat Line' In Reverse: Turkey Sends Syrian 'Rebels' To Libya

Bloomberg has confirmed on Friday the prior rumors that Turkey will be sending mercenaries to Libya — where it is propping up the UN-backed government in Tripoli (the GNA) — are true. "Turkey is preparing to deploy troops and naval forces to support the internationally-recognized Libyan government, joining a planned push by Ankara-backed Syrian rebels to defeat strongman Khalifa Haftar," reports Bloomberg.

Though Ankara has yet to confirm or deny the new reports, Erdogan's Turkey has for years overseen a Libya-to-Turkey-to-Syria arms "rat line" which saw both heavy weaponry and jihadists fighters transported for the purpose of toppling Assad. But now with Erdogan's eyes set on defeating Benghazi-based General Khalifa Haftar, it appears this arms and jihadist rat line has conveniently been reversed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to ask; how is Russia, which is backing Haftar, going to react to this Turkish move in Libya?!?

It looks to me as though this has the very real possibility of this exploding in Erdogan's face like a bad trick cigar.

Yale Psychiatrist Who ‘Diagnosed’ Trump As Unfit Has Dirty Secret That’s Just Been Exposed

n a bid to have President Donald Trump removed from office, the left is pushing the “diagnosis” of a Yale psychiatrist who has ruled him “unfit” to be president. However, Dr. Bandy X Lee’s own dirty little secret has just been exposed — and it’s bad news for her career.

In December 2017, more than a dozen lawmakers secretly met with leading Yale psychiatrist Dr. Bandy X Lee to discuss their concern for the president’s mental health, which they suspect is unstable and rapidly declining. Of course, this was merely another one of their countless plots to get Donald Trump removed from the White House since their frivolous impeachment campaigns have miserably failed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I don't know if she can lose either her accreditation as a psychiatrist, or her position at Yale; either way, she has created a very nasty situation for herself, and it will be interesting to see how this will be allowed to play out.

Ignorance of the law - particularly when a person is accusing someone wielding great geopolitical power of having any kind of personality - or behavioural problems - is a very risky business, and blowback, as Dr. Lee is discovering right now, can be pretty gruesome, professionally.

So now, what is this lady doing, to attempt to cover a professional faux pas when she should have known better?

Dr. Lee has quintupled down, by making the following statement, which we find in breitbart.com today:

Psychiatrist: Pelosi Can Subject Trump to 'Involuntary' Evaluation The article goes on to quote Dr. Lee further, in her statement, by saying: "“As a coworker, she has the right to have him submit to an involuntary evaluation, but she has not,” Lee told Salon. “Anyone can call 911 to report someone who seems dangerous, and family members are the most typical ones to do so. But so can coworkers, and even passersby on the street.”

A "co-worker", Dr. Lee?!? Really, is this how you see the role of the President of the United States, relative to the House Position held by Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House of Representatives?!? This is one of the most interesting characterizations of the Office of the President I have seen in some time, and I have seen some Doozies!!

Syria: Trump Administration Builds Military Base in Oil Field

The United States is building a large military base within the al-Omar oil field, in the province of Deir Ezzor, in Syria, local media reported.

“The U.S. is equipping the base to serve as the command headquarters for the international coalition’s operations,” the Syria Now portal reported.

Besides fortifying the field with logistic and military reinforcements, the U.S. Army is building airstrips for its helicopters, which will be used to monitor oil wells from the air.

According to Syrian analysts, Washington is working to find a mechanism that makes it easier to extract as much Syrian oil as quickly as possible.???????

To do so, the U.S. is moving electrical equipment to put the electricity network into operation at the oil fields, which would allow it to begin to exploit them.

One has to wonder just what Russia will do to end this madness, and when.

‘Blinding the Truth’: Israeli Snipers Target Gaza Protesters in the Eyes

The journalist

According to Dr Alqedra, most people with eye injuries from the Great Return March are journalists or photographers.

One of them is Sami Musran 35, a photographer who works for Al-Aqsa TV. On July 19, he was shot several times – first in his hand, the next two times in his shoulders and the fourth time in the chest. (Fortunately, he was wearing a bulletproof vest, so it did not harm him.) The last time cost him his left eye.

Sami says he had received several calls from Israeli officers warning him not to take photos at the Great Return March. His mother also received calls, saying her son might be killed.

“Forty times, my Facebook account was hacked or deleted for me, and I received death threats as well,” he says. “But I decided to keep on with my work to reveal the Israeli crimes against unarmed Palestinians who participate in the march.”

The night before Musran was shot, his wife tried to insist he stay home, but he refused.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Notice that when Israel does this against Palestinian reporters or children, this is always defended by the US, while when the Iranian government does this, it is always characterized as horrible, and wrong, which it actually is in both cases!!

Who Is Winning the Arms Race? Russia’s “Super-Weapons”

Russia’s defense budget is a small fraction of what the US spends for militarism and warmaking. Yet Russia’s super-weapons exceed the best in the West because of efficient and effective use of its resources.

Meeting with Russia’s Defense Ministry Board on Tuesday, Putin discussed Moscow’s military development and key objectives next year.

Ahead of the meeting, he “visited an exhibition of advanced Russian weapons and equipment.

Putin earlier said Russia will not engage in an arms race. It’ll use its resources effectively and efficiently for maximum bang for the buck, my words interpreting his.

He also stressed that, unlike the US and NATO, Russia abides by its treaty obligations.

“How are we able to…remain in the lead,” he asked? “By using our brains, by intellect, by a better work organization, by minimizing” waste, fraud and abuse, by focusing on achieving maximum defense capabilities against possible aggression.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When someone is doing something excellently well, as the Russians are with their weaponry, how they are doing it must also be a matter of learning and inclusion bytheir competitors.

Trump Threatens Syria: Will POTUS Come to the Rescue of Al-Qaeda Terrorists in Idlib?

Trump wished the Syrian Arab Republic a belated Merry Christmas by tweeting yet another threat, warning the Syrian Armed Forces not to liberate Idlib from the approximately 10,000 al Qaeda terrorists who have occupied this area of the country, since the beginning of the crisis.

Surely the 45th President of the USA knows these stats, supported even by the same UN that also wails for al Qaeda on a regular basis. Surely Trump heard Special Presidential Envoy to the alleged anti-Daesh Global Coalition, Brett McGurk when he emphatically stated that Idlib province is the largest al Qaeda safe haven since 9/11.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. President, if the US goes into Syria in any great numbers, what, please, is Russia going to do here?!?

IS it your desire to get a shooting war going against Russia... over Syria?!?
I would like to politely suggest, sir, that this, of all the potentially ham-fistedly, pig-headedly potentially disastrous thing for the US to be even contemplating right now, this is probably one of the worst ideas, ever.

And this is particularly alarming, since the inclusion of the Avangard missile in the Russian military's, which renders everything we have as a counter measure, now obsolete.

In Malaysia, China’s PR blitz on Uygurs in Xinjiang sparks anger

In op-eds carried by several media outlets, China’s ambassador Bai Tian denounced ‘Western’ reports of abuses in Xinjiang.

But the commentaries in English, Chinese and Malay have backfired, causing outrage online and among the country’s leading Muslim intellectuals.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This "re-education" campaign is either an attempt at a complete ethnic cleansing of the Uygur people, or a way to clamp down on anti-Chinese violence; depending on what the Chinese believe they will gain from their efforts. And perhaps, a bit of both elements are at work here.

The Committee to Protect Journalists mimics the government and drops the jailed Wikileaks founder like a hot potato.

TED GALEN CARPENTER
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange languishes in a British prison awaiting probable extradition to the United States to stand trial for violating the Espionage Act of 1917. Ironically, he is serving jail time for jumping bail on trumped-up sex crime charges in Sweden that even the Swedish government has now abandoned. Most Western, especially American, mainstream journalists, though, have expressed at most tepid opposition to the persecution of Assange, even as reports mount that his health has deteriorated to an alarming extent.

This is shameful and jeopardizes the news media’s own long-term interests.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What Assange did, was to tell the truth, which was found terribly embarrassing those in the bowels of power in DC, so they have reacted en masse to silence him permanently.

And I would like to challenge former CIA Director (and now Secretary of State) Pompeo with the following question; when was Assange, and the information he shared, ever proven wrong?!?

The short answer is, absolutely never, to the best of my understanding.

Israel's Military Chief Outlines Strategy For "Coming War" With Iran & Its Allies

Via AlMasdarNews.com,

The Chief-of-Staff for the Israeli Armed Forces, Aviv Kochavi, said on Wednesday that Israel cannot allow Iran to station militarily in Iraq. According to Ynet News, Kochavi stated on the seventh anniversary of the death of the former Chief-of-Staff, Amnon Lipkin Shahak, that the Israeli army would never allow Iran to be stationed in Iraq.

“The Quds Force of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards in Iraq… transfer advanced weapons there monthly. We cannot leave this situation without interference,” he said.

“In the coming war, we will have to attack with great force in populated areas and also target the state structure or the entity that allows terrorism to act against us,” Kochavi continued.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Well, Aviv Kochavi has certainly spelled out Israel's intentions; but one has to wonder, just where does that put the US government, vis a vis, with its relationship with Israel?

Let me tell you about a Defense Pact, being cobbled together by Netanyahu and Pompeo, which should have the hairs on the back of your neck standing up and shivering:

Netanyahu, Pompeo Push Forward With US-Israel Defense PactAnd here is the most utterly terrifying line in the whole article:

"Details of the pact aren’t clear, beyond it committing the US to war to defend Israel."

What the hell?!? I mean, yes, we know that Mike Pompeo, our Secretary of State is a "Rapture Aficionado", as he has made clear in a number of speeches, including this one in 2015:
Mr. Pompeo talks about the rapture. “We will continue to fight these battles,” he said at a “God and Country Rally” in 2015, because there is a “never-ending struggle” until “the rapture.”

But to conflate biblical conjecture with insane foreign policy, which such a US/Israeli defense pact would imply?!?!?

Those who believe in The Rapture, also believe that an entire, world-engulfing war has to happen as the "trigger" for the Rapture to begin. Is this, possibly, Pompeo's "trigger" for such an action to happen?!?

“Be part of it,” he said at the meeting, at the Summit church in Wichita, Kan. “Be in the fight.”

In November, Mr. Pompeo told a reporter for The New York Times Magazine that the Bible “informs everything I do.” The reporter noticed an open Bible in his office, with a Swiss Army knife marking his place at the end of the book of Queen Esther.

This legislation will most probably be "rolled out" in some form, in March, right after the AIPAC Policy conference in DC.

The fact that Netanyahu, bribery charges, et al, still won the last "snap" election in Israel last week, means that he will be certain to push for this legislation to be "fast-tracked and passed" by Congress, before they even can realise the implications of such a pact, which throws America's military into any Israeli confrontation in the Middle East, no matter if Israel actually started the fight, or did not.
Unfortunately, just because something might be the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid piece of legislation to be thrown at Congress, is utterly no guarantee that they will not pass it, particularly if their political lives depend on those AIPAC donations and its good will.

Maddow Meltdown: In Defense To OAN Lawsuit, Host Argues Her Words Are Not Facts

Back in September, we reported that TV network OAN had filed a lawsuit against Rachel Maddow for the time the host said that OAN “really, literally is paid Russian propaganda.”

Now, Maddow finds herself having to come up with a defense for her statement in court. And she has also apparently hired Lionel Hutz as her legal adviser.

According to Culttture, her lawyers argued in a recent motion that "…the liberal host was clearly offering up her ‘own unique expression’ of her views to capture what she saw as the ‘ridiculous’ nature of the undisputed facts. Her comment, therefore, is a quintessential statement ‘of rhetorical hyperbole, incapable of being proved true or false."

Oh, it's capable of being proved false, alright. Maddow had previously claimed, on air, about one of OAN's reporters:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Are the walls closing in on you for backing the "wrong horse", my dear, with this big blob of codswallop?!?

Did you believe, for one moment, that your personal "invincibility" would ever be questioned, or challenged?!? That moment seems to have come, and all you appear to be able to do here, linguistically, is an attempt to "duck and cover" for the moments you lied to the American people with impunity, and thought, really thought that you could get away with it.

Whose going to pay the penalties, if this lawsuit is successful for OAN, you personally, or the station which carries you, MSNBC?!?

We here at WRH, will be watching the conclusion of this trial with great interest.

WIKILEAKS: Chemical Weapons Watchdog Ordered Deletion of ‘All Traces’ of Findings That Syrian ‘Chemical Attack’ May Have Been Staged

Wikileaks has published shocking leaked documents from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons in which they covered up a dissenting report that concluded chemical weapons were not used in the Syrian city of Duoma last year.

The latest release is the fourth batch of leaked documents that WikiLeaks has published from OPCW.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Color me completely unsurprised here; the US government relies on codswallop like this, to further its own agenda; the one thing that would be a surprise is finding a situation in which the US government actually told the truth.

Avangard changes everything: What Russia’s hypersonic warhead deployment means for the global arms race

Moscow’s deployment of ‘Avangard’ hypersonic warheads means the US missile defense installations in Europe are now obsolete – and that Washington would have to spend a lot of money it doesn’t have in order to catch up.
Video released by the Russian defense ministry on Friday shows the hypersonic glider warheads being loaded onto silo-based missiles. For now, the Avangards will be mounted on the UR-100N (or SS-19 Stiletto, as NATO calls them) ballistic missiles, until the RS-28 Sarmat is ready to enter service.

Hypersonic weapons fly far faster than the speed of sound. Avangard is capable of reaching Mach 27 without losing control or disintegrating under heat and pressure. This means that the weapon can outmaneuver any defenses on its approach phase, rendering it “absolutely invulnerable to any air or missile defense system,” in the words of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

With such a bloated budget for Defense, why does the US seem to consistently be drawing the "short stick", when it comes to developing weapons which can, and will, outperform those of Russia?!?

This is a question which must be asked, and answered, by both the defense industry, and congressional representatives of the districts in which they work.

The answer to this is complicated, because isn't one or two factors here, but a conjoining of factors which has allowed this to happen.

Representatives Military Industrial complex rub shoulders with Presidents and Congressional bigwigs on a consistent basis, and overtly and covertly fund those candidates, in both Presidential and State races, to make sure that they get the best "bang", in terms of defense contracts for their campaign buck.

And because they contribute in this manner, executives of these companies believe that they can present shoddy products which are late; antiquated by the time of delivery; don't ever perform as promised; and are besieged with production problems, and the kinds of cost over-runs which could make one's eyes water.

First, this kind of contributing should be immediately outlawed.

Secondly, in the language of any contract by any branch of the US military, there should be a clause inserted stating that if the product is not delivered on time, within budget, and performing as advertised, then the corporate head of that company could be tried, convicted, and serve jail time for a "failure to deliver as specified".

Draconian steps?!? Absolutely.

But would they begin to diminish this kind of perpetual crisis with the American weapons systems industry, in its always being behind the proverbial eight-ball, regarding Russia and China's weapons program?!?

Absolutely.

We've been bled to death, economically, by military-centric companies which believe that all the above, including late, non-performing products, coming with staggering cost-over-runs, are just the way their businesses should work; this government needs to change up its game here, and quickly.

A Man Died After Police Slammed His Head Into His Own Car Because They Thought He'd Stolen it

After a California cop caught up to the driver of a vehicle he believed to be stolen, he slammed the driver’s head into the car and put him in a sleeper hold. The driver died.

But the man behind the wheel, David Glen Ward, was actually the victim of a carjacking — not the perpetrator — and had reported his Honda Civic stolen to the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office just days earlier, on Nov. 24. The 52-year-old had somehow recovered the vehicle, according to the Washington Post, but didn’t tell police the car was back in his possession. Ward was then driving the car home around 6 a.m. on Nov. 27 when police spotted the Honda Civic and began pursuing the vehicle, without realizing the driver was Ward.

The Great Cover Up

The great puzzle thus far has been the lack of prosecutions, despite ample evidence. The FBI agents are all guilty of crimes that have been detailed in public documents and the IG reports. There is now proof that Comey perjured himself many times. Just from a public relations perspective alone, rounding up these guys and charging them with corruption seems like a no-brainer. Almost a year into his tenure and Barr has charged no one with a crime.

Senior OPCW official ordered deletion of ‘all traces’ of dissenting report on ‘Douma chemical attack’ – WikiLeaks’ new leak

The leadership of the chemical weapons watchdog took efforts to remove the paper trail of a dissenting report from Douma, Syria which pointed to a possible false flag operation there, leaked documents indicate.

In an internal email published by the transparency website WikiLeaks on Friday, a senior official from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) ordered that the document be removed from the organization’s Documents Registry Archive and to “remove all traces, if any, of its delivery/storage/whatever.”

Trump’s EPA Goes to Bat for Bayer as Company Fights $25 Million Verdict in Roundup Cancer Case

resident Donald Trump‘s Environmental Protection Agency—already accused of being “pesticide cheerleader”—threw its weight behind chemical company Bayer AG on Friday when the agency asked a federal appeals court to reverse a lower court’s ruling in favor of a man who said the company’s Roundup weedkiller was responsible for his cancer.

The case centers on Edwin Hardeman of California, who was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2015 after using the glyphosate-based pesticide, made by Monsanto, for years on his property. Bayer acquired Monsanto last year.

A federal jury in July ordered the company to pay Hardeman roughly $25 million in damages, a lower amount than the $80 million a federal judge had ordered months earlier.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF any one of us were to advocate the consistent dosing of the families of EPA members with the amount of Roundup to which this man had been exposed, we would be charged with "terroristic threatening".

And if it hasn't dawned on you by now, it's official: President Trump, and the cronies he has chosen to run this government, are just as much a swamp creatures as those who he excoriates in his rants and addresses.

Video: Turkish-based ‘Syrian Government’ Threatens Damascus with Military Action

Late on December 23, the Turkish-based “Syrian Interim Government” (an entity funded by Turkey in an attempt to legalize its actions in Syria) threatened the real Syrian government with a military action.

In a released statement, it claimed that forces that participated in Turkey’s Olive Branch and Euphrates Shield operations are now moving to Greater Idlib in order to support their counterparts in repelling an attack by “regime forces, Russia and Iranian militias”.

It remains unclear what “forces” the barely existing “defense ministry” is planning to send to Idlib because Turkish-backed militant groups are already supporting al-Qaeda-linked Hayat Tahrir al-Sham in the battle against the Syrian Army. The Turkish-backed coalition of militant groups, the National Front for Liberation, has always been a useful partner for al-Qaeda in Idlib.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Erdogan, are you flipping kidding us, with this potential threat against Russia forces in Syria?!?

And sir, if you think you can do this on your own, please go ahead; But do you really believe that NATO will back you against Russia in Syria?!?

Was there some under-the-table quid pro quo, between you and Israel, or between you and the US, that such an act against Russia would be supported in any way?!?

Because if such has not happened, and you are out there, all on your lonesome, expecting NATO to come and rescue you, from your own catastrophic stupidity, and it refuses to do so, WHAT THEN, PLEASE?!?

The Trump-Biden and the Russia-Ukraine Saga: The Game is About Eurasia

Regarding the Bidens’ role in this fiasco, one surprising aspect is that it took so many years for the controversy regarding Burisma Holdings to go viral, even in alt-media. The facts that not only Hunter Biden but also Devon Archer, a former John Kerry campaign manager, sat on Burisma’s board of directors, and that Burisma was extensively invested in shale-gas extraction in the vicinity of the Donbas war-zone, had been public knowledge in the Russian-speaking world ever since 2014.

‘Cutting each other's throats’: Allies fear Russia will annex Belarus to save Putin’s life

Western allies fear that Russia will gain sovereignty over Belarus, a former Soviet satellite state that could help preserve Vladimir Putin’s grip on power and sharpen Kremlin threats against NATO members.

Russian expansion is on the table because Putin is trying to finalize the implementation of a union treaty that the two countries signed in 1998. Moscow and Minsk interpret the agreement differently, but Putin has begun to apply economic pressure to Belarus while scheduling a flurry of meetings with Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko over the last year.

“I think this mild annexation will just happen, probably next year,” Alisa Muzergues, a foreign policy analyst at GLOBSEC in the Slovak Republic, told the Washington Examiner. “To be honest, my personal feeling is that it's already a done deal."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I wouldn't throw the alarm here; Putin has, by in large, been good for the Russian people; the American government, by in large, has been good...for large corporations, and the already monied.

And I strongly believe that if given the chance, the Russian people would vote for him again.

Has Russia got superior weaponry to NATO?!? The short answer is, yes; but that is completely NATO's fault, and they need to up their game here.

And can someone, please, articulate what these "threats" to NATO are, concretely?!?

Because I sure as heck cannot see these "threats" other than some conjured Codswallop, courtesy of NATO, which have no basis in reality. What I do see, however, are new NATO deployments close to Russia's borders, which has got to make the Russians more than a little nervous.

Report: FISA Court Has Not Ordered FBI to Check FISA Applications Beyond One Lawyer

The court that granted the FBI surveillance warrants on former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page has only ordered that the FBI review all warrant applications related to one FBI attorney and not all FBI agents involved in misconduct, according to a report.

The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) earlier this month ordered the FBI to re-verify all previous Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant applications involving Kevin Clinesmith, the FBI attorney who falsified evidence in the FBI’s efforts to seek a renewed surveillance warrant against Page.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Amazing, how the concept of US "Justice" has morphed into "Just US!!!" in recent decades, hasn't it?!? So what we have here, is an extremely limited hangout, courtesy of the FISC.

IRAN AGAIN BLOCKS INTERNET & MOBILE SERVICE AHEAD OF PROTESTERS' FUNERALS 

SOURCE: ZERO HEDGE
Fearing the potential for renewed protests and violent clashes with police, Iran has again blocked internet and mobile access to broad section of the country on Wednesday.

This as several funerals will be held over the coming days for protesters killed last month amid a severe government crackdown, which also witness an unprecedented nationwide internet blockage which lasted for a week or more in some provinces.

Citing Iranian state media, Bloomberg reports, "The mourning services are scheduled to begin on Thursday. The independent Shargh newspaper said five unidentified provinces will be subject to the blackout, while ILNA said internet users in those areas will have access to a limited number of state-approved Iran websites and applications."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Isn't it amazing that, according to the US government, Iranian live fire on peaceful demonstrators is bad, but Israeli life fire against peaceful Palestinian protestors, is good, and never gets condemned?!?

Just more than a little curious about that!!

SOCIAL MEDIA AND SOCIAL CONTROL: HOW SILICON VALLEY SERVES THE US STATE DEPARTMENT

Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg is in the spotlight for “dining with far-right figures,” and their influence over the information that appears in your feed is apparent. However, Facebook isn’t the only Silicon Valley firm that’s masquerading as nonpartisan as it curates the “facts” you see in ads, posts, or searches: Google, Twitter, Microsoft, and others are deeply wedded to the U.S. security state and the billionaires it upholds.

Walter Lippmann’s groundbreaking 1922 study of the news media, “Public Opinion,” begins with a chapter titled, “The World Outside and the Pictures in our Heads,” in which he presents the media as a bottleneck through which information about the world beyond the perception of our senses must pass. Aside from the question of which stories get passed through that bottleneck, which information about an event that survives the crucible of condensation into an article, news bulletin or wire is determined by the biases of the writer and editor.

ISRAEL TO REINSTITUTE ‘ASSASSINATIONS POLICY’

SOURCE: MIDDLE EAST MONITOR

Israel’s foreign minister on Thursday said Tel Aviv would return to “the policy of assassinations” against Palestinian resistance figures in the Gaza Strip, Reuters reports.
In statements he made to Israel’s army radio, Yisrael Katz indicated that there was “an intelligence effort to identify the rockets’ launchers and work to eliminate them.”

He stressed: “Intelligence efforts are currently focused on determining who is responsible for ordering missile launch instructions in order to work to eliminate him.”

On Wednesday evening, Israel’s iron dome anti-missile system intercepted a missile reportedly fired from the Gaza Strip towards the country’s south while Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was attending an election rally in Ashkelon province.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder; was Wednesday's alleged attack close to where Netanyahu was campaigning, done to give the Knesset a "raison d'etre" for bringing back assassinations as the "new normal" for Israel?!?

Understanding just how good these folks are with geopolitical theatre, I, right now, would not bet against this possibility.

MIKE BLOOMBERG EXPLOITED PRISON LABOR TO MAKE 2020 PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN PHONE CALLS

SOURCE: THE INTERCEPT
FORMER NEW YORK CITY mayor and multibillionaire Democratic presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg used prison labor to make campaign calls. Through a third-party vendor, the Mike Bloomberg 2020 campaign contracted New Jersey-based call center company ProCom, which runs calls centers in New Jersey and Oklahoma. Two of the call centers in Oklahoma are operated out of state prisons. In at least one of the two prisons, incarcerated people were contracted to make calls on behalf of the Bloomberg campaign.

According to a source, who asked for anonymity for fear of retribution, people incarcerated at the Dr. Eddie Warrior Correctional Center, a minimum-security women’s prison with a capacity of more than 900, were making calls to California on behalf of Bloomberg. The people were required to end their calls by disclosing that the calls were paid for by the Bloomberg campaign. They did not disclose, however, that they were calling from behind bars.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mikey, Mikey, Mikey... if your people cannot fact-check how a company sources its campaign phone calls, should you, by some miracle, get nominated and elected, how can the rest of America expect you to protect us from harm's way, if there is a real danger at our doorstep?!?

The short answer is, they cannot, sir; you've just proven it to them, with this debacle.

HUNTER BIDEN ACCUSED OF $156M UKRAINE MONEY LAUNDERING SCHEME IN COURT FILING

SOURCE: ZERO HEDGE

A new filing in an Arkansas lawsuit against Hunter Biden claims that the former Vice President’s son "is the subject of more than one (1) criminal investigation involving fraud, money laundering and a counterfeiting scheme."

Filed by private investigator Dominic Casey of D&A Investigations on behalf of Lunden Alexis Roberts - with whom Hunter fathered a child, Monday’s "Notice of Fraud and Counterfeiting and Production of Evidence" alleges that Hunter Biden and associates Devon Archer and John Kerry stepson Christopher Heinz engaged in a money laundering scheme which accumulated over $156 million between March 2014 and December 2015.

According to the document, Biden, Archer and Heinz became directors of consulting firm Rosemont Seneca Bohai, LLC in order to "conceal their family members ownership," establishing financial accounts at Morgan Stanley and China Bank, the latter of which was used in a money laundering scheme.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Tom Perez, courtesy telephone, please; this issue will NOT go away for either the Democratic Party, or for the "Famile Biden"; if Biden does, by some kind of miracle, win the nomination, the Republicans are going to dog that nomination with these accusations right up until the day of the election itself.

Warren's numbers for "medicare for all" are blowing up in her face; the country is singularly unready for a Bernie Sanders Presidency; and Hillary, your two-time epic fail, is Kryptonite who comes across with all the warmth and compassion of a Dr. Who Dalek; so what do you do?!?

Tom, I have mentioned before, (and I would almost bet that you have someone tasked with the "punishment" of looking at this blog on a daily basis); you have understand that Presidential candidates are created, not necessarily born. So what you need to do, is to look at what is left after you seperate the "non-electable" from the most likely electable candidates, and this gives you two names; those of Tulsi Gabbard, and Pete Buttegieg.. Both are Vets who have seen active duty service, and because of that, are not the warmongers your military/industrial complex likes to see, even through, these people will always get their proverbial "pound of flesh" from Congress, because of the candidates they support, overtly and covertly.

Tom, it's time for a little horse-sense here. Running Hillary for a third time, with no change in the Electoral College set up, nearly guarantees (even with all the possible vote fraud factor included), that the Democrats will implode come November, and from self-inflicted wounds.

Please try for a couple of candidates who can make sense for the American people this time, and who can be made to at least appear to "have the backs" of the very quiet "American center", please?!?

VACCINE FAIL: “WHOOPING COUGH OUTBREAK CLOSES TEXAS SCHOOL DESPITE 100-PERCENT VACCINATION RATE: OFFICIALS”

SOURCE: GREEN MED INFO
Despite a 100% vaccination rate, a Texas school closes early for winter break due to a whooping cough outbreak. Clearly the vaccine is failing to work as advertised.

If ever there was convincing proof that vaccination does not equate to bona fide immunity, it is at St. Theresa Catholic School in Texas…

Reported by FoxNews.com on Dec. 19th, the school experienced an outbreak of whooping cough, causing them to close their doors and start their winter break early.

On Dec. 4th, St. Theresa Catholic School in Memorial Park, reported its first case to the Texas Department of State Health Services. Since then, the outbreak has continued to escalate — and not because of the abuse of religious and medical exemptions, and so-called “anti-vaxxer” parents.

According to the FoxNews report, the school vaccine uptake rate was at 100%:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As vaccine failures go, this one was utterly epic.

And we have a companion piece, also at blacklistednews (originally published at sputnik.com), which is no harbinger of vaccine freedom, for any reason;

MIT Develos Tattoo ID, to track who has veen vaccinated.

The article goes on to state; "SOURCE: SPUTNIK NEWS
MIT researchers have struck on a novel, and for many surely unsettling, method of keeping track of who has and hasn’t had a particular vaccination – creating an ink that can be safely embedded in the skin alongside the vaccine itself, and only visible using a special infra-red application.

The invisible “tattoo” is a pattern made up of tiny semiconducting crystals that reflect light and thus glows under infra-red light. The pattern will be delivered alongside the vaccine into the skin via hi-tech dissolvable microneedles made of a mixture of polymers and sugar.

“In areas where paper vaccination cards are often lost or do not exist at all, and electronic databases are unheard of, this technology could enable the rapid and anonymous detection of patient vaccination history to ensure that every child is vaccinated,” MIT researcher Kevin McHugh said in a statement.

Strikingly, the research was funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation – in fact, the project came about following a direct request from the Microsoft founder himself, who has been personally and somewhat controversially involved in efforts to eradicate polio and measles via vaccinations worldwide."

This funding... was no accident. And neither is the reality that getting vaccinated against measles, is not a guarantee that a child will not get measles;
Seven of My Vaccinated Kids Have the Measles Right Now
The article went on to state: "According to Mrs. Pearl, the health department official also told her that measles vaccine failure is common and that about half the people getting measles in the current measles clusters in Brooklyn are fully vaccinated.

Mary Holland, a Harvard-educated lawyer on the faculty at New York University and co-author of two books about vaccines, says she’s not surprised.

While the CDC reports the efficacy rate after two doses of the measles vaccine at 97 percent, some experts, like Holland, believe that number is inflated.

“The measles component of the MMR suffers from primary and secondary failure,” Holland says. “In other words, it simply doesn’t work in some individuals and in other individuals the protection wanes. One size just doesn’t fit all.”

Mysterious drones flying nighttime patterns over northeast Colorado leave local law enforcement stumped

A band of large drones appears to be flying nighttime search patterns over northeast Colorado — and local authorities say they don’t know who’s behind the mysterious aircraft.

The drones, estimated to have six-foot wingspans, have been flying over Phillips and Yuma counties every night for about the last week, Phillips County Sheriff Thomas Elliott said Monday.

The drones stay about 200 feet to 300 feet in the air and fly steadily in squares of about 25 miles, he said. There are at least 17 drones; they emerge each night around 7 p.m. and disappear around 10 p.m., he said.

“They’ve been doing a grid search, a grid pattern,” he said. “They fly one square and then they fly another square.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I don't believe that they don't know what the drones are doing; they have just been ordered, by those flying the drones, not to say anything about their use.

COLLEGES ARE TURNING STUDENTS' PHONES INTO SURVEILLANCE MACHINES, TRACKING THE LOCATIONS OF HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS

Colleges are tracking students' location to enforce attendance, analyze their behavior and assess their mental health. One company calculates a student's "risk score" based on factors such as whether she is going to the library enough.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Were I a student in this part of the 21st century, when inspecting a college for future attendance, I would ask point blank, if it was an established policy to do such surveillance of their students, without their permission.

If the answer was yes, I would thank the person showing me the campus, and leave, scratching that particular school of higher surveillance off my list, as a place I would want to go.

Trump Says He Can Ignore Medical Marijuana Protections Passed By Congress

Let's just hope this is just a;"If I want to, I can."

In a statement attached to a large-scale funding bill he signed into law on Friday, President Trump said in effect that he reserves the right to ignore a congressionally approved provision that seeks to protect state medical marijuana laws from federal interference.

It is the third time Trump has said in a signing statement that his administration doesn’t necessarily have to abide by the medical marijuana provision. He included similar language when signing off on annual appropriations bills last year and in 2017, though he did not do so in 2018.

In August, the president reiterated his support for letting states legalize cannabis without federal interference.

An End to the World as We Know It? Congress and the White House compete in year-end stupidity sweepstakes

Dmytro Kuleba, Ukraine’s Deputy Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration, has been in Washington lobbying for the additional military assistance. He has had considerable success, particularly as there is bipartisan support in Congress for aid to Kiev and also because the Trump Departments of Defense and State as well as the National Security Council are all on board in countering the “Russian threat” in the Black Sea. President Trump signed the NDAA last week, which completed the process.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The behaviour of both Congress and our President, with these "bundles of joy" attached to their spending legislation, very much reminds me of a very funny American comedian by the name of Ron White, who made the comment in one of his stand-up routines: "You can't fix stupid."

I can't be the only one out there, very negatively responding to all of the above; why, in the name of heaven, cannot this government find ways to use collaboration, instead of confrontation, to calm down geopolitical squabbles, other than with war?!?

And it doesn't matter which party is in power; the idiocies of both US foreign and domestic policy suffer from a permanent, and almost pathological inability of the crafters of these obtuse, and occult bits of legislation, to think a scenario through to its logical conclusion, or understand what the "crash and fail" results of this behaviour will be, when these actions happen, simultaneously, in real time.

Turkish parliament readying bill to allow sending troops to Libya

ANKARA (Reuters) - Turkey may need to draft a bill to allow for troop deployment to Libya and its parliament is working on the issue, Presidential spokesman Ibrahim Kalin said on Tuesday, after Ankara signed a military cooperation agreement with Tripoli last month.

“There might be a need for an authorisation in line with the developments over there. The parliament is conducting work on this issue,” Kalin told a news conference in Ankara.

“We will continue to support the internationally recognised Libyan government. This support may be in terms of military training, or other areas, such as political support,” Kalin said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder just what Erdogan's ploy may be here; possibly to revitalize a very fractious relationship with NATO, which appears to be fraying at the edges, and rapidly?!?

Morales claims US orchestrated 'coup' to tap Bolivia's lithium

Former Bolivia president Evo Morales told AFP on Tuesday that he was forced from office by a United States-backed coup d'etat aimed at gaining access to the South American country's vast lithium resources.

Demand for lithium is expected to grow globally as it is one of the key components in batteries used in high-tech equipment such as laptops and electric cars.

Morales resigned as president on November 10 after almost three weeks of protests against his controversial re-election to an unconstitutional fourth term in a poll widely denounced as rigged.

His resignation came after then-chief of the armed forces General Williams Kaliman publicly stated the former trade union leader should step down.

But since then, Morales -- Bolivia's first indigenous president -- has claimed to have been the victim of a coup d'etat.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This guy, who was known for really trying to lift the Bolivian people out of poverty, is entirely correct in his assessment.

How Rothschild Inc. Saved Donald Trump

In the early 1980’s Donald Trump was an up and coming real estate developer in New York. There was no connection between the Trump name and casinos or gambling. The obvious nature of the name Trump and its definition related to gambling and card games foretold of the massive empire which would develop in the coming years.

In 1987 Donald Trump purchased his first casino interests when he acquired 93% of the shares in Resorts International. Resorts International has a sordid history which began in the early 1950’s when it evolved from a CIA and Mossad front company which had been established for the purpose of money laundering the profits from drug trafficking, gambling, and other illegal activities.

On October 30, 1978, The Spotlight newspaper reported that the principle investors of Resorts International were Meyer Lansky, Tibor Rosenbaum, William Mellon Hitchcock, David Rockefeller, and one Baron Edmond de Rothschild.

Israel prevents hundreds of Gaza's Christians from Bethlehem Christmas pilgrimage despite lifting ban

Christians from around the world have arrived in the West Bank town of Bethlehem ahead of Christmas day, while hundreds of Palestinian Christians from Gaza have been blocked by Israel from undertaking the pilgrimage.

Over 3.5 million tourists visit the city during this time, queuing to visit the grotto inside Bethlehem's Church of the Nativity, believed to be the exact site where Jesus was born.

Palestinian tourism minister Rula Maaya told AFP it had been a good year, but fewer Christians from the Gaza Strip were in attendance than in previous years.

Wadie Abunassar, an advisor to and spokesman for church leaders in the Holy Land, said out of the 951 applications from Gazans so far, only 192 had been granted.

This comes after Israel announced on Sunday that it will allow Christians in the Gaza Strip to travel to Jerusalem and the West Bank for Christmas, reversing an April decision to ban them from leaving the besieged Palestinian enclave.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Oh, sure, all Gazan Christians can come to Jerusalem and the West Bank for Christmas; all they have to do is get the proper permits, which we will make almost damn near impossible!!!" Official Tel Aviv Souse.

Saudi Artillery Strikes Kill 17 at Yemen Border Market

Cross-border shelling by Saudi Arabian forces against a popular marketplace on the Yemeni side of the border killed at least 17 people, according to locals. Indications are that everyone killed was a civilian, and the Saudis have not commented on why they attacked.

The sources said 12 Ethiopian migrants were among those killed in Yemen, and that 15 people were wounded and taken to hospitals for treatment. The market has been attacked several times by Saudi forces.

The market doesn’t seem to have any military significance, but it is in Saada Province, which is the main province of the Houthi movement. This seems to be reason enough for the Saudis to regularly attack them.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When I was a kid in public school, I never imagined, in my wildest dreams, that the US was anything but the "good guy" in its dealings with other countries.

Then came the insanity of the Vietnam War, and that.... was an industrial-strength wake-up call that challenged my former evaluation of the US government's actions internationally forever.

Fast forward to the Trump Administration, and here is what we see; the US government, in collusion with Saudi Arabian government in their war crimes, to bomb Yemen to back beyond the stone age; military interventions in countries around the world, in order to expropriate their resources, to which we have no moral right; and threatening the awakening economic and military powerhouses of Russia and China with a shooting war, because it's just great for the US military/industrial complex.

I have a friend who once confided that she believed we were actually living through the "End Times" of Biblical prophecy; and looking at the pathological inability from the US government to do something remotely intelligent, as in learning from its mistakes over the decades, I have to wonder if she doesn't have a valid point here.

Israel says filing error to blame for strike that killed nine members of al-Sawarka familyIsraeli army says the home of the Palestinian family was not a military compound as it was previously categorised

In November, Israel conducted a series of air strikes on the Gaza Strip after it assassinated a senior Islamic Jihad commander and his wife.

The Palestinian armed group retaliated to the assassination by launching a barrage of rockets into Israel, before the two parties agreed on a ceasefire following joint Egyptian and UN mediation.

‘All that’s left are their school uniforms’: Israeli air strike kills eight Palestinian relatives
Read More »
During the two days of air strikes, at least 34 Palestinians were reported killed and more than 100 wounded.

No Israelis were killed during the same time period.

The deadliest of these attacks was carried out on the home of the al-Sawarka family, killing eight members of the family, including children.

A week after the strike, a ninth member of the family, Mohammed al-Sawarka, died from injuries sustained in the bombing.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This was no "computer error"; this was "genocide by increments", wiping out a few Palestinian families, and their children.

It is a favorite tactic of the IDF, who, after the slaughter, say, "Geewhiz, gang, our bad! It was a clerical error which caused the slaughter of these innocent families, really, you have to believe us, honest, it was just a mistake!"

This is why the peaceful, non-violent course of BDS is the right, and moral course, for the rest of the world to follow against Israel for these horrific assassinations; Most Israelis speak Hebrew, and some may speak some English; but all Israelis are very bi-lingual when it comes to economics.

Vaccine FAIL: “Whooping cough outbreak closes Texas school despite 100-percent vaccination rate: officials”

Despite a 100% vaccination rate, a Texas school closes early for winter break due to a whooping cough outbreak. Clearly the vaccine is failing to work as advertised.

If ever there was convincing proof that vaccination does not equate to bona fide immunity, it is at St. Theresa Catholic School in Texas...

Epstein "Admitted To Me He Was A Spy", Ex-Biz Partner Warns "He's Got Prince Andrew Pinned To The Wall"

Britain’s Prince Andrew and Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged pimp Ghislaine Maxwell have joined forces to stonewall investigators and prevent Epstein’s victims from obtaining justice.

That’s the explosive claim of former Epstein colleague and friend, Steven Hoffenberg, who confirms that Epstein was indeed a top-level agent for the Israeli Mossad, as first confirmed in the best-selling book Epstein: Dead Men Tell No Tales.

In a series of bombshell interviews with me following the release of the book, Hoffenberg confirmed that not only does he have first-hand knowledge of Epstein’s work as an agent of the Mossad, as described in the book; but also, his former cohorts Prince Andrew and Maxwell are still actively working to keep his explosive secrets.

The USMCA, Virginia & Possible Deployment Of UN Troops Against Gun Owners

Just remember Trump pushed the USMCA which is nothing more than UN Agenda 21/30 in new clothes.

As the situation in Virginia continues to escalate the possibility that they are deliberately trying to lure patriots into committing acts of violence must be considered. It is the Hegelian dialectic at play ? create the problem by criminalizing legal gun owners, provoke the reaction and offer the solution. The final solution is, the merging of the United States into a one world order headed by the United Nations. As crazy as that sounds the groundwork for such a merger is well established as the United States committed itself to United Nation objectives with the signing of the United Nations Participation Act in 1945.

Warning! What Men Need to Know Before Eating Impossible Whoppers from Burger King

Men, before eating your next Impossible Whopper from Burger King, I would kindly suggest you read this.

Is Burger King at the forefront of population control?

Do I sound crazy?

Now, let’s compare the estrogen hormone in an impossible whopper to the whopper made from hormone implanted beef. The impossible whopper has 44 mg of estrogen and the whopper has 2.5 ng of estrogen. Now let me refresh your metric system. There are 1 million nanograms (ng) in one milligram (mg). That means an impossible whopper has 18 million times as much estrogen as a regular whopper. Just six glasses of soy milk per day has enough estrogen to grow boobs on a male.

THIS IS AMERICA: 10 EXAMPLES THAT SHOW HOW DRAMATICALLY THE U.S. HAS CHANGED AS WE APPROACH 2020

SOURCE: MICHAEL SNYDER, GUEST POST
One thing that you can count on in life is that things are going to change. And these days the pace of change in America is absolutely breathtaking. Our culture is in the process of being radically transformed, and the direction of that change has not altered very much at all no matter which political party has been in power in Washington. Many of the values that are now embraced by a solid majority of the population run directly counter to the values that once dominated our society, but only a small minority of Americans seem alarmed by that fact. It appears to be exceedingly unlikely that there will be any deviating from the path that our nation has chosen, because at this point the American people seem quite satisfied with the dramatic “progress” that is taking place.

So what do you think?

Are we on the right track as a nation?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My short answer to this question about "Are we on the right track as a nation?" would be a resounding "HELL, NO!!!!!!!

And the primary (but governing) reason is the following; pro-peace, national candidates from both parties will never see daylight as President or Vice President, because their pro-peace stances will translate into billions lost by the military industrial complex; so our alleged "choices" for President and Vice President are orchestrated by this lewd tango between the military industrial complex and the US deep state, both of which have nearly never seen a potential war, or potential regime change they didn't just love, no matter the horrific costs to our men and women in uniform.

The paupacity of true education and true understanding in this country, is embarrassingly amazing, but it is done purposely: programs like Common Core, are enabled to keep people from thinking, and using their God-given common sense.

Because when people are numerate; literate; and capable of true critical thinking, that huge ooze of codswallop we are supposed to swallow whole, courtesy of the corporate Presstitutes whose almost every word is dictated by this country's deep state, to support a war-centric agenda, very much falls apart, under even the most casual scrutiny.

This leaves US citizens easily confused, and torn apart to the point where we cannot even talk about political issues without that devolving into a real shouting match, in many families and friendships.

A house divided against itself cannot stand; so while we are distracted by every single, possible distraction, including those provided by our media, and arguing among ourselves, the US Deep State and military industrial complex provides us with enemies du jour, and wars we, of course, MUST fight to "contain (fill in country's name here) that country's alleged "aggression" against us.

So here is the process; regime change any governments not to the US government's liking; install a puppet regime which will enable US-centric multinational companies, to come in and expropriate that country's natural resources, to which this government, and these corporations have no moral right; ; and only sell those resources in US dollars.

Follow the money; follow the resources, and it is pretty easy to see how this happens, and is happening seemingly endlessly, on the part of this government.

What do we need to do to change this?!?

First, we need to have a peaceful, reasonable, and national conversation about these endless wars, and why our military is fighting in them in the first place.

The first of these which comes to my mind, is our governments'partnering in war crimes and the biggest humanitarian disaster in recent history in Yemen, by supporting Saudi Arabia against the Houthi rebels here. Every single rational article I have read about this conflict, indicates that it has to be resolved not by more bullets and bloodshed, but by moral, intelligent, and hard-won negotiations.

So we have to ask our leadership; is there no other way than wars with which to obtain those geopolitical concessions which the US seeks from other countries?!? I am convinced that there is; but there has to be a will in the Bowels of Power in DC, to make that happen, which currently does not exist.

I want to see this country go back to hand-written ballots which cannot be electronically altered.

I want to see a "none of the above" on every Presidential ballot, so ultimately, We the People will have actual choices on candidates, not candidates "pre-digested" by the military industrial complex, and the US Deep State.

And finally, I would like to see an amendment to the Constitution, stipulating that any national candidate who wins the Presidency, Vice-Presidency, or Congressional race, must have their kids enlisting in the military, if they are of appropriate age, and must be trained with combat units most likely to see action on the front lines of whatever war the US government has decided we are fighting.

Now, I understand, as well as a grown person, that such an amendment might only happen when pigs discover that they are aerodynamic; that being said, however, I wouldn't bet against such an Amendment slowing down the US Government's lust for wars, when the people ordering those wars understand that it most probably will be their kids who may well die in the first stages of those wars.

1-page summary of Monetary Reform and Public Banking: pay US national debt, fully fund infrastructure, return ~$1,000,000 to every household. Your choice: breakthrough or tragic-comic exponential debt crash

Can US national debt be sustained, or is it an exponential and accelerating growth curve with mechanics that must crash if not reformed?

The nominal annual interest payment of US national debt pushed over $600 billion; doubled from just 2004. Demonocracy's 2 minute visual of the national debt:

As a math teacher, I see exponential growth in a model that creates what we use for money only as negative numbers (debt/credit). Without the power to create money as positive numbers (monetary reform explained below), this accelerating growth of debt only has one outcome: crash.

Moreover, I see insiders know this, as oligarchs push for short-term tax benefits as 91 Fortune 500 companies paid zero taxes (some received taxpayer subsidized refunds despite profits in the collective trillions, with an average tax down to 11%). The top 1% now own more assets than the bottom 99%.

MI5 GIVEN THE GO-AHEAD TO ALLOW INFORMANTS TO COMMIT CRIMES

HUMAN rights campaigners today vowed to appeal against a “knife-edge” divided tribunal ruling which allowed MI5 to continue authorising informants to commit serious criminal offences.

Privacy International, Reprieve, the Committee on the Administration of Justice (CAJ) and the Pat Finucane Centre took legal action against the government over a policy the groups claim “purports to permit agents to participate in crime” potentially including murder, kidnap and torture.

The campaign groups said the policy effectively “immunises criminal conduct from prosecution” and asked the Investigatory Powers Tribunal (IPT) to declare the policy unlawful and grant an injunction to restrain further conduct.

But the tribunal today ruled the policy lawful by a 3-2 majority.

Reprieve director Maya Foa said: “The IPT’s knife-edge judgment, with unprecedented published dissenting opinions, shows just how dubious the government’s secret policy is.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So let me get this straight: UK intelligence agents are now formally authorized to commit torture, if they deem it necessary to extract life-saving information, and there will be no lawful repercussions for having done this.

I have to wonder just how far they are going to have to "grandfather" this protection in for people in intelligence work, who have already been accused of this kind of behaviour.

But the big, ugly question here is timing; why now?!?

What sort of "horrible, hideous international incident" is the British and/or US going to throw at us this time, to distract us from what is going and for when is this being planned?!?

I would politely suggest, that the timing of this ruling is anything but accidental.

The Christmas Truce Of WWI Paused The Murderous Demands Of The State

As December waxed, the combat ardor of the frontline troops waned. With Christmas approaching, the scattered and infrequent gestures of goodwill across enemy lines increased. About a week before Christmas, German troops near Armentieres slipped a “splendid” chocolate cake across the lines to their British counterparts. Attached to that delectable peace offering was a remarkable invitation:

We propose having a concert tonight as it is our Captain’s birthday, and we cordially invite you to attend – provided you will give us your word of honor as guests that you agree to cease hostilities between 7:30 and 8:30…. When you see us light the candles and footlights at the edge of our trench at 7:30 sharp you can safely put your heads above your trenches, and we shall do the same, and begin the concert.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a terribly under-reported episode of World War I, but one which needs to be examined and cherished, because of the human decency these soldiers shared with one another, even though they were allegedly "sworn enemies".

Turkey Can't Handle New Refugee Explosion & Greece Will Be First To Feel Impact: Erdogan

At a moment Erdogan has his hands dirty in Syria and is preparing to get more militarily involved in Libya, Turkey's president has yet again threatened Europe with a refugee horde so large no country will be able to handle it. He's now specifically threatened Greece as being among the first to bear the brunt of the first waves of refugees unleashed by Turkey.

His threats are now centering on the major uptick in airstrikes by Russia and Syria on Idlib province, said to number in the "hundreds" since a new operation began on Dec.16. Since then, tens of thousands of civilians living under al-Qaeda's Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) have reportedly fled.

"Turkey cannot handle a fresh wave of migrants from Syria, President Tayyip Erdogan said on Sunday, warning that European countries will feel the impact of such an influx if violence in Syria’s northwest is not stopped," Reuters reports.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The people for whom I feel sorry the most, in this whole, sordid mess, generated by the US in a continuing (and failing) bid to unseat Al-Assad, are the people displaced by the fighting.

What is happening to them, should not be happening at all, but to the US government, these folks are simply "collateral damage", with no real human value at all.

European Firms Stop Work On NS2 Pipeline As Gazprom Readies Own Ships 'Immune' To US Sanctions

Trump's signing the 2020 NDAA into law on Friday, and with it sanctions targeting European and Russian companies laying the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, had the immediate impact of forcing a work stoppage over the weekend as Allseas, the Swiss company that is Nord Stream’s main contractor, confirmed its workers as well as partner contractors have laid down their tools.

And Russia is now hitting back, first by promising Washington will not impede the project, and further with reports that Moscow is drawing up retaliatory sanctions against the US, while not citing specifics.

Majority stakehold Gazprom has indicated it's already taken measures to complete the project while circumventing the US measures. The WSJ continues:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To a small child, everything it it sees, is a nail, just waiting to be hammered in.

So it is with Trump's sanctions, which will only have the effect of pushing Europe ever more deeply into Russia's economic embrace, and insuring that Europe doesn't really want to have anything more to do with the Unhinged; surveilled State of Amerika.

Buchanan: Today France, Tomorrow America?

Authored by Patrick Buchanan via Buchanan.org,

As that rail and subway strike continued to paralyze travel in Paris and across France into the third week, President Emmanuel Macron made a Christmas appeal to his dissatisfied countrymen:

“Strike action is justifiable and protected by the constitution, but I think there are moments in a nation’s life when it is good to observe a truce out of respect for families and family life.”

Macron’s appeal has gone largely unheeded.

“The public be damned!” seems to be the attitude of many of the workers who are tying up transit to protest Macron’s plan to reform a pension system that consumes 14% of GDP.

Macron wants to raise to 64 the age of eligibility for full retirement benefits. Not terribly high. And to set an example, he is surrendering his lifetime pension that is to begin when he becomes an ex-president.

Zuesse: Proof That America's "Deep State" Exists And Controls The Government

(5:50-) It’s a Brennan operation. It was an American disinformation, and the fucking President, at one point when they even started telling the press — they were back[ground]-briefing the press, the head of the NSA was going and telling the press, the fucking cocksucker Rogers, telling the press that we [they] even know who in the Russian military intelligence service leaked it. All bullshit.

In other words, besides the information from Bill Binney, who was an NSA whistleblower who took early retirement so he wouldn’t have to continue doing what people such as John Brennan demanded, Seymour Hersh there provided yet additional confirmation to this account from the also-early-retired whistleblowing UK Ambassador Craig Murray — a close friend of Assange — who claimed that he had “met” the person in DC who supplied the thumb drive (USB stick), which then was delivered (he didn’t say how) to Assange:
