Tillerson: 'Status of J'lem not final'

United States Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said on Friday the "status of Jerusalem was not final" and that it will be some time before the US is able to move its embassy to from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, pursuant to President Donald Trump's speech earlier this week recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital and announcing the planned embassy move.

Any final decision on the status of Jerusalem will depend on negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians, Tillerson said, appearing to add nuance to President Trump's decision.

"With respect to the rest of Jerusalem the president ... did not indicate any final status for Jerusalem," Tillerson said, speaking at a news conference in Paris alongside French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This, Mr. Tillerson, is pure and utter grade-A bovine excrement; no words you can possibly utter can undo the lethal damage to any possibility of a two state solution your boss created with his recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel last week.

Look for a regional, if not a world war, to evolve from his statement Wednesday, and it will be a war in which the US government is bound, lock-step, in defense of Israel.

44,000 US Troops on ‘Unknown’ Deployments Worldwide

When the Pentagon wants to mislead the public about where US troops are, generally speaking, they just lie. Yet sometimes the number of troops is just too big to claim as a rounding error, and questions start happening.

This week, the focus is on over 44,000 US military personnel deployed to “unknown,” which immediately raises red flags, because that’s not a place. Pentagon officials, however, say there is “no good way” to describe where they are.

Pentagon spokesman Col. Rob Manning, on the one hand, presented this as an “operational security” and “denying the enemy any advantage,” including, it seems providing any specifics on who “the enemy” at this point even is.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would strongly suggest that these troops are not "unknown" to the Pentagon; they are simply...undeclared.

The U.S. Media Yesterday Suffered its Most Humiliating Debacle in Ages: Now Refuses All Transparency Over What Happened

FRIDAY WAS ONE of the most embarrassing days for the U.S. media in quite a long time. The humiliation orgy was kicked off by CNN, with MSNBC and CBS close behind, with countless pundits, commentators and operatives joining the party throughout the day. By the end of the day, it was clear that several of the nation’s largest and most influential news outlets had spread an explosive but completely false news story to millions of people, while refusing to provide any explanation of how it happened.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This behaviour, on the part of CNN and the other corporate presstitutes, is nothing new; when a story does not follow the agenda of the deep state, it is falsified, or just not reported alltogher.

Expect no truth whatsoever from the corporate presstitutes or whorespondents; you have to find it out for yourself, online, and make the determinations about what is real, and what is fake news, on your own.

Brittany Covington, 19, pleaded guilty to a hate crime in court on Friday, according to the Chicago Tribune.

The suspect also “pleaded guilty to aggravated battery and intimidation charges. As part of a plea deal, prosecutors dropped additional charges, including kidnapping,” the Tribune said.

Despite the guilty plea, Cook County Circuit Judge William Hooks released Covington without jail time. Telling Covington, “Do not mess this up,” Judge Hooks imposed 200 hours of community service and banned Covington from using social media and having contact with her co-defendants for four years.

Why Retiring Early Is Surprisingly Not As Good As It Sounds

You might dream of an early retirement and count down the days until you don’t have to answer to your boss anymore. However, retiring early might not be as great as you think it will be. Although it would be nice to finally relax and kick off your shoes, there are some downsides to calling it quits a few years early. If you don’t prepare properly, early retirement could have a negative impact on you — financially, emotionally, and physically.

Trump 'drinks TWELVE cans of Diet Coke Daily

Donald Trump voraciously drinks Diet Coke, is addicted to watching news and uses TV to manipulate his own moods, insiders say.

From the moment he wakes up, he uses CNN for news, watches Fox News for comfort, and - they suspect - takes in MSNBC's Morning Joe to get himself riled up for the day.

To keep himself in a fighting mood he consumes 12 cans of Diet Coke daily, according to some of the 60 advisers, associates, friends and members of Congress that spoke to The New York Times.

'Your DNA is an abomination': Texas State University paper slammed for 'racist article' by author who said they 'hate' white people

Texas State University's student newspaper has been blasted after it printed an opinion column that excoriated white people for 'subjugating' non-whites whether they know of it or not.

The University Star article, written by student Rudy Martinez, calls white people in the US 'an aberration' and tells them to 'remember this: I hate you because you shouldn't exist.

'Whiteness will be over because we want it to be,' Martinez wrote. 'And when it dies, there will be millions of cultural zombies aimlessly wandering across a vastly changed landscape.'

15 Most Expensive States for Gasoline — and How It Got That Way

Does it seem like you’re paying more at the pump in 2017? It’s more than a feeling. According to statistics from AAA, U.S. gasoline prices averaged $2.59 at the start of fall 2017 — more than 25 cents above the prices from a year earlier ($2.33). While hurricanes played a role in this huge jump, gas prices have been higher throughout the year. In April, Americans were paying an average of $2.53 for per gallon.

House approves bill allowing conceal and carry across state lines

The House of Representatives voted yesterday on a conceal and carry bill that could have a huge impact on interstate truckers who drive with firearms for personal protection. House Passes Monumental Gun Rights Bill- The “Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act” was passed yesterday by a 231-198 margin. This is the first movement by lawmakers under Trump to fulfill the president’s campaign promises to promote and protect gun rights. Trump campaigned on conceal and carry reciprocity, writing in a position paper published before he was elected, “The right of self – defense doesn’t stop at the end of your driveway. That’s why I have a concealed carry permit and why tens of millions of Americans do too. That permit should be valid in all 50 states. A driver’s license works in every state, so it’s common sense that a concealed carry permit should work in every state.

THOUSANDS MARCH IN TEL AVIV TO PROTEST AGAINST NETANYAHU, CORRUPTION, AGAIN

Thousands of Israelis protested in Tel Aviv on Saturday for the second consecutive week against government corruption and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is under criminal investigation over allegations of abuse of office.

Police estimated the number of demonstrators at about 10,000 and they followed last Saturday’s demonstration, which was by far the largest of the recent weekly anti-corruption protests when an estimated 20,000 people participated.

The protests have been sparked by corruption allegations against Netanyahu, who denies any wrongdoing. The four-term leader is suspected of involvement in two cases.

The first involves receiving gifts from wealthy businessmen and the second involves negotiating a deal with a newspaper owner for better coverage in return for curbs on a rival daily.

If charged, he would come under heavy pressure to resign or could call an election to test whether he still had a mandate to govern.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Netanyahu does not care about his alleged "mandate to govern"; all he cares about is military power, and is obsessed with "legacy", whatever that means to him.

IF there is a "snap election" in Israel, expect it to be more crooked than is a dog's hind leg, in order to keep him in power.

Massive election-rigging is not a totally American process.

In Jerusalem, 3 Religions Collide and Violence Is Never Far Away

'They Aren't Wanted Here': Israeli Defense Minister Calls for Boycott of Arabs

According to the Israeli defense minister, residents of the Jewish state's area populated mostly by Arabs "have no connection with this country."

Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman has stated that the Arabs residing in the Wadi Ara region "do not belong" to the Jewish state and called for a boycott.

"They should understand that they are not wanted here, they are not part of us," the minister told the Army Radio.

Commenting on Saturday's protests in the region over US President Donald Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as the Jewish state's capital, Lieberman said that Wadi Ara residents "have no connection with this country," adding that the riots are "intolerable."

Russian MoD: Coalition Destroyed Syrian Cities With Carpet Bombings, While Syrian Army Crushed Daesh

According to the Russian military, "in three years of its presence in Syria, the coalition only recently achieved its first ‘result’ in the fight against Daesh by destroying Raqqa along with the civilians."

The Russian ministry has further accused the US-led coalition of allowing the core Daesh terrorists to leave Raqqa, as confirmed by the BBC broadcaster, and join other jihadists near Deir ez-Zor.

P.C.Roberts: Avoiding Nuclear War Is Our First Priority

***
Trump’s election was like Reagan’s. He appealed to the people instead of to the ruling interest groups. As a high official in Reagan’s government who was aligned with Reagan’s goals to end stagflation and the Cold War, I experienced first hand the cost of going against the powerful interest groups that are accustomed to ruling. We took part of their rule away from them, but now they have taken it back. And they are now stronger than before. Essentially, Trump is powerless and is limited to expressing his frustrations on Twitter.

In my opinion, the lesson being dealt to Trump will teach any future presidential candidate not to challenge the ruling oligarchy by appealing to the American people.

This means that democracy in America is stone dead. I sometimes wonder if democracy can be revived without violent revolution, and of course revolutions can go wrong.

Are Americans capable of violent revolution? If they are not, will the greedy elites remain in control until they stumble into a nuclear war?

Who is Saakashvili? The wunderkind elected in 2004 in Tbilisi after a "Rose Revolution" we backed during George W. Bush’s crusade for global democracy.

During the Beijing Olympics in August 2008, Saakashvili sent his army crashing into the tiny enclave of South Ossetia, which had broken free of Georgia when Georgia broke free of Russia.

In overrunning the enclave, however, Saakashvili’s troops killed Russian peacekeepers. Big mistake.>>>

Trump Forfeits US Mideast Mediator Role, Russia Should Step In

President Donald Trump’s announcement this week that the US is henceforth recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel will have many harmful repercussions for the entire Middle East.

But out of the ashes of US policy, something better can arise. Russia should step in to give badly needed leadership.

Russian President Vladimir Putin was among many world leaders who warned that Trump’s intervention will likely derail peace prospects, not just for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict but for the region as a whole.

Palestinians, Arabs and Muslim nations are infuriated by what they see as Trump’s betrayal of a righteous cause for Palestinian statehood, with East Jerusalem being the future capital of that state.

By declaring Jerusalem the capital of Israel, Trump is effectively pre-empting any negotiated settlement to a conflict which has raged for 70 years.

John Lennon Was Right: The Government Is Run by Maniacs for Maniacal Means

“You gotta remember, establishment, it’s just a name for evil. The monster doesn’t care whether it kills all the students or whether there’s a revolution. It’s not thinking logically, it’s out of control.”—John Lennon (1969)

Peaceful, prolonged protests work.

Mass movements with huge numbers of participants work.

Yes, America, it is possible to use occupations and civil disobedience to oppose government policies, counter injustice and bring about change outside the confines of the ballot box.

It has been done before. It can be done again.

For example, in May of 1932, more than 43,000 people, dubbed the Bonus Army—World War I veterans and their families—marched on Washington>>>

(*Lennon was assassinated 37 years ago , long before the concept of an alleged 'outsider' entered the same political circle that had it in for him and became POTUS . If he were around today, he'd probably be the most outspoken on the subject of photoshopped dissidence , or taking a knee out of dissatisfaction , marking the concept of this article obsolete in the time of "The Base" .)

POLICE HOMICIDES IN THE UNITED STATES

The killings of Michael Brown, Eric Garner and Walter Scott have increased the world’s attention to US police violence, yet most Americans underestimate the threat posed by the people charged with keeping them safe.

Let’s turn to the facts.

There is no national registry of civilians killed by police and corrections officers in the United States. Several states, including Texas, Connecticut and California, maintain complete records, but in most parts of the United States, local law enforcement chooses whether to report officer-involved homicides to the federal government. The lack of systematic data poses a challenge both for those who wish to hold police accountable for their actions and for those who want to propose reform measures to reduce police violence. How many killings are committed by police?

BLACK WOMAN GETS PROBATION FOR KIDNAPPING WHITE MENTALLY ILL MAN TORTURED ON FACEBOOK LIVE

After nearly a year in Cook County Jail in Illinois, 19-year-old Brittany Covington was freed on four years of probation after a plea deal was reached Friday.

Covington, a black woman, had been charged with a hate crime and kidnapping in connection to the torture of a white mentally ill man. From December 31, 2016 to January 2, 2017, Covington and three other black defendants, including her older sister Tanishia Covington, Tesfaye Cooper and Jordan Hill, all held the mentally ill victim in the Covingtons’ apartment.

Brittany narrated multiple graphic Facebook Live videos showing the man being hit and kicked, having his clothes cut off with a knife, being forced to drink from a toilet, and being ordered to say, “I love black people.” He was also called a supporter of then-President-elect Donald Trump. Her probation bars her from contacting Cooper or Hill or using social media. The other three defendants’ plea deals are being negotiated.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: this kind of horrific, morally inexcusable behaviour, has just been given a pass, and a blessing from the Illinois court.

In light of the reality that this kind of brutal behaviour has been "normalized" by this plea deal, were I a resident of that state right now , I would be moving out, just as fast as my car could (legally) take me; the Illinois judiciary has just added another component to the reality that living in this state can be very hazardous to one's health.

I would also be very clear in letting Governor Bruce Rauner understand as to why you were moving, and taking your tax base elsewhere.

PAUL CRAIG ROBERTS: AMERICA IS "WALKING INTO ARMAGEDDON"

The orchestrated hostility toward Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea protects the $1,000 billion annual budget of the military/security complex by convincing the American public that the US is threatened by enemies. It also keeps alive Democratic Party hopes that Trump can be removed from office, and it has prevented President Trump from normalizing relations with Russia. I have emphasized for some time that Washington’s gratuitous and aggressive actions against Russia and the constant barrage of false accusations against Russia and its government have convinced Russia that Washington is planning a military attack. There is nothing more reckless and irresponsible than to convince a nuclear superpower that you are preparing an attack on them.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A major war is coming, based on the reality that the Elites of this country, who despise true justice, and want the financial favors to come to "Just Us" (meaning them) have rigged the financial system to the point of near-collapse, so need a major war to attempt to distract most Americans from the coming financial debacle.

A magician would use the term "misdirection", but this industrial strenth codswallop, getting force-fed to the American people, courtesy of the corporate prestitutes and whorespondents, about the ongoing "threats" this country faces are, most generally, narratives to push the war agenda.

And if, in fact, the Occupied, Unhinged, Surveilled States of America lose this next war, the US government, and its lacadaisical attitude toward its weapons manufacturers, will be be squarely to blame.

The world has seen the sterling success of Russia's weaponry and tactics in Syria, and are beating a path to its door to acquire those weapons.

Unfortunately, the culture of US weapons manufacturers has been coddled by the US government and military, to the point where their CEOS think it is perfectly fine to deliver weapons that do not work; are obsolete by the time they are delivered and field tested; and are horrifically overpriced.

This has to change, and immediately, before the US ever regains its tactical advantage with its weaponry again; unfortunately, that is not going to happen before the next major regional, or world war, happens, and our military are, once more, going to be left in the lurch because of what has become "acceptible and standard" practice by the US govenment and military.

RT: A US army convoy got stuck in the mud on a road in western Poland. Their colleagues who came to help then saw their own vehicle turning over, prompting the 'gallant' soldiers to eventually ask the locals for help.

The small US army convoy, consisting of what appears to be two heavy combat engineer support vehicles, experienced trouble on a road near the western Polish town of Lubin, when one of the trucks suddenly experienced problems with the brakes. The convoy pulled to the side of the road to examine the fault, only to find themselves stuck in a ditch.

Woman Becomes ‘Engaged’ to Chandelier

33-year-old Amanda Liberty from Leeds, England, reportedly proposed to the chandelier on Valentine’s Day, however she will be “continuing an open relationship with the rest of her collection of 25 chandeliers,” according to Inside Edition.

“You can’t control who you fall in love with and things just went from there,” explained Liberty, who added that she saw her “fiancée” Lumiere on eBay last year.

Inside Edition reported, “The nearly 30-inch wide chandelier is an antique and had to be shipped over from Germany,” and, “Although Lumiere is the only chandelier that wears a ring,” Liberty “loves all the light fixtures in her collection.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This will end in tragedy. The chandelier self-identifies as a microwave oven.

Facebook Censors Roy Moore Yearbook Forgery Bombshell, Politifact Says 'No Evidence' Inscription Was Tampered With

Facebook is suppressing the bombshell news of Roy Moore accuser Beverly Young Nelson "admitting she forged" parts of her yearbook inscription that she claimed was signed by Roy Moore.

According to Nelson's lawyer Gloria Allred back in November, Nelson said she "is willing to testify under oath before the U.S. Senate that there has been no tampering."

Nelson said in her initial statement with Allred that Moore wrote the entire inscription in her yearbook.

"He wrote in my yearbook as follows," Nelson said. "'To a sweeter and more beautiful girl I could not say Merry Christmas. Christmas 1977. Love Roy Moore, Olde Hickory House.' And he signed it 'Roy Moore D.A.'"

A breakdown of everything we know in the Aztec deadly school shooting

New Mexico State Police Chief Pete Kassetas identified 21-year-old William Atchison as the shooter.

Atchison worked a local gas station but FBI officials said he was a former Aztec High student.

Officials said he has planned the shooting and released a post he had written on a gaming website the morning of the shooting at 6:51.

"If things go according to plan, today would be when I die.
I wait until the school buses are detected, then head on foot disguised as a student.

I go somewhere and gear up, then hold a class hostage and go ape-s**t, then blow my brains out.
Work sucks, school sucks, life sucks.
I just want out of this s**t."

VIDEO | A Private Spy Network That Reports To Trump? Sarah Sanders Shoots Down Major Garrett…

Given the politicized state of the Intelligence Agencies I wouldn't blame Trump for wanting his own independent analysts to advise him, but that's not the point. The point is Major Garrett is a prick every damn day of the week, and this is just one more example of him trying to destroy the President with un-sourced innuendo.

Erik Prince Blasts Obama Administration for ‘Illegal’ Surveillance of Him

Obama’s National Security Council allegedly leaked information about former Navy SEAL and Blackwater CEO Erik Prince to the liberal press after they put him under “illegal” surveillance during a foreign trip, according to testimony Prince gave the House Intelligence Committee back in November.

The transcript, released Wednesday, indicates Prince believed that surveillance to be “illegal.” In response to a question from Rep. Tom Rooney (R-FL), Prince discussed his belief American intelligence agencies surveilled him while he spoke in a hotel bar in the Seychelles with Russian businessman Kirill Dmitriev in January of 2017.

The investigation, supposedly about Trump-Russia ties, later was used by the Washington Post in a piece about Trump ally Prince’s connections to Russia. The Post alleged he was trying to set up a “back channel” between Trump and Putin.

Palestinian 'days of rage' erupt in violence

Trump's dramatic break on Wednesday with decades of U.S. policy on Jerusalem counters long-standing international assurances to the Palestinians that the fate of the city will be determined in negotiations. The Palestinians seek Israeli-annexed east Jerusalem, captured by Israel in 1967, as a future capital.

(*Trump didn't make things better , but , if I may be allowed to play 'devil's advocate' , I wouldn't find it unreasonable for his base to put it out there that he has brought the US stance into honest clarity . Finally Palestinians can see the true US Government Policy towards their struggle for survival .
