Netanyahu's Attempts to Reopen PMD Case Futile

Tehran on Tuesday described as futile the attempts made by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to bring up new issues with regard to Iran's past nuclear activities, known as the PMD (possible military dimensions) in a case that has already been closed legally and politically.

Trump’s Neocons See Erdogan As Their Ticket To A Region-Wide Middle East War

Turkish troops and armored units are massed along Turkey’s southern border awaiting orders to invade northern Syria. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan wants to clear a ten mile-deep swath of land east of the Euphrates River in order to remove terrorist-linked militants (YPG) currently occupying the territory. The proposed offensive would put US Special Forces in the line of fire which significantly increases the likelihood of US casualties. If American troops are killed or wounded by the Turkish operation, Washington will respond in force leading to a potentially catastrophic face-off between the two NATO allies. The possibility of a violent clash between Turkey and the United States has never been greater than it is today.

On Wednesday, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned Turkey that any unilateral action in Syria would have “devastating consequences.”>>>

China’s PLA Troops In Venezuela: A Watershed Moment In World Politics

The reported arrival of Chinese military personnel in Venezuela last weekend is undoubtedly a major event in world politics.

Unlike Russia, which has a history of force projection abroad, this is an extremely rare Chinese move. Although vital Chinese interests are at stake in the war against terrorist groups in Afghanistan and Syria, China refrained from publicising any such deployment.

The reports mention that the group of Chinese military personnel is 120-strong and arrived on the Margarita Island in the Caribbean Sea off the Venezuelan mainland on March 28 ‘to deliver humanitarian aid and military supplies to the government forces.’ After delivering the humanitarian supplies, the Chinese PLA troops were apparently transferred to a Venezuelan military facility.

In a Medium post explaining his 2015 vote in which he joined 25 other Democrats to lift the ban, O’Rourke said the move would “boost our economy, jobs and current trade imbalances” and improve national security by making America “less dependent on energy from other volatile areas in the world.”

Netanyahu, Trump and Putin: A love story

The Israeli prime minister has worked hard to grow his political bromance with the presidents of Russia and the US.

Call him a crook, call him a warmonger, but who other than Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu could boast two successful summits with both US and Russian presidents Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin, all within two weeks of the Israeli elections?

His immediate motives are clear, but there is something beyond his obviously shrewd use of diplomacy for electoral gain. There are greater strategic implications of such high-powered statesmanship.

So how did a politically challenged, corruption-ridden leader of a tiny state get the world superpowers to do his bidding and on his schedule?

The answer lies in a three-way bromance that has been blossoming for some time, and could potentially shape the Middle East for years to come.

The One Jewish State Solution

"There is obviously a big difference between the one-state call that has been pushed by Palestinian solidarity activists and Netanyahu’s politics of annexation. While Palestinian rights advocates are referring to one democratic state, Netanyahu is not committed to democracy at all. He is solely faithful to the Jewish population and what he offers in practice is a “One Jewish State Solution”. After all, Israel defines itself as “the Jewish State” and it is there to serve one people while denying others their most elementary rights.

"Israel, as we know, is not a state of its citizens; it is a state of its Jewish citizens. By the time Israel comes to term with its sin and transcends into a state of its citizens regardless of their race, ethnicity or religious belief, it will be renamed. It may as well be called Palestine...">>

Sorrento’s Wolfgang Halbig still insists Sandy Hook was faked

Wolfgang Halbig says he’s been attacked, harassed, his reputation destroyed – all for asking questions.

But they aren’t just any questions. Halbig has, with the help of InfoWars founder Alex Jones, broadcast conspiracy theories about the 2012 massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.

Halbig, a Sorrento resident, is named in defamation lawsuits against Jones filed by family members of the shooting victims. The suits say Jones and his associates have been spreading baseless claims about the Sandy Hook massacre that left 20 children and six educators dead.

In a deposition released last week, Jones said Halbig sent him thousands of emails over the years, providing him much of the information that helped propel the notion that Sandy Hook never happened, that it was a hoax cooked up by the government in its effort to take away Americans’ guns.

“Assange Is Not A Journalist!” Yes He Is, Idiot.

As we discussed yesterday, whenever Assange is in the news and people are defending him you always see a bunch of hyper-emotional empire loyalists running around online trying to manage the narrative about him. One of the most common talking points which comes up is that Assange is “not a journalist”.

The reason this talking point comes up, of course, is because the WikiLeaks founder is besieged by powerful forces who are attempting to imprison him for publishing inconvenient facts about them, and his defenders often voice their concerns about what this means for the future of press freedoms. The completely baseless claim that Assange is “not a journalist” is used in an attempt to defuse the argument that his prosecution by the US government could lead to the same fate for any news media outlet which publishes leaks on the US government anywhere in the world. If he’s not a journalist, then his prosecution sets no precedent for real journalists.

Georgia’s current law allows abortions to be performed up to 20 weeks. State lawmakers passed the fetal heartbeat bill at the end of March. Republican Gov. Brian Kemp (shown above right), who campaigned on the issue, has until May 12 to sign it into law.

Countries arming Saudi Arabia, partners in crimes against Yemenis: Iran

Iran has strongly condemned the latest deadly airstrikes by Saudi warplanes in Yemen that killed more than a dozen civilians, most of them schoolchildren, saying countries that are arming the aggressors are complicit in the crimes.

"Countries that have caused the humanitarian catastrophe in Yemen by providing arms to the aggressors are accomplices in these crimes and must be held accountable for their support," Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi said on Monday.

He criticized the international community for remaining silent and indifferent to the atrocities committed by the Saudi-led coalition in its military campaign against Yemen and expressed sympathy with the families of victims.

The Iranian spokesperson called on the United Nations and countries involved in the Yemeni crisis to ramp up their efforts in order to put an immediate end to the attacks and adopt necessary measures to protect civilians, particularly women and children.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Iranian Foreign Minister Qassemi, I agree entirely with your position on this.

The assassination of children, is tantamount to the destruction of a country's rightful future, bit by bit; because all of today's kids will grow up to take their rightful place in the world in the next couple of decades.

There would be no earthly reason for you to know who I am, but I would like to share this with you; my husband and Mike are both peace activists, very concerned that of late, this country seems to believe that the only way to resolve its geopolitical disputes, is the invocation, and execution, of war.

End the transgender 'unregulated live experiment on children' say whistleblowing workers who have quit clinic treating patients as young as THREE

Five whistleblowing workers at the only NHS transgender clinic in Britain have quit over fears children as young as three are going through unnecessary gender reassignment treatment.

It was feared some gay children struggling with their sexual identity are being incorrectly diagnosed as transgender.

Specialists also worried that some of the youngsters were being referred and pressured into having gender change treatment after suffering homophobic bullying.

The Syrian American Council’s Pressure Campaign to Censor One of Its Major Critics

The Syrian American Council and a collection of pro-war lobbyists have led an intimidation campaign aimed at bullying a major Washington-based bookstore, Politics and Prose, into canceling award-winning journalist and author Max Blumenthal’s launch event for his new book The Management of Savagery.

And it appears to have worked. Politics and Prose announced that it would “postpone” the event, citing “concerns” over the event’s “format, substance, … [and] security” in a tweet. In a testament to the ferocity of the harassment campaign against the small chain, the company has pinned the statement to the top of its Twitter page so that anyone visiting it sees immediately that they caved.

Politics and Prose is the go-to space for D.C. book events. If you are on a book tour and coming to Washington, chances are that Politics and Prose will be hosting your event.

Secret drug-resistant infection spanning globe

A mysterious fungal infection is spanning the globe under a shroud of secrecy. The drug-resistant and dangerous infection is, so far, not being widely reported on, however, Candida auris has been causing severe illnesses in hospitalized patients around the world.

Drug-resistant infections have been a growing concern among doctors. With the overuse of antibiotics, the evolutionary rise of “superbugs” has begun. Candida auris does not respond to anti-fungal drugs, making it difficult to treat. In some patients, the infection is so deep that the yeast causing it can enter the bloodstream and spread throughout the body. This causes a serious invasive infection which, again, doesn’t respond to drugs.

Only functioning airport in Libya's Tripoli hit by air raid - reports

The only functioning airport in the Libyan capital of Tripoli has been hit in an air raid, local TV and several agencies report, citing eyewitnesses. Heavy fighting broke out between the forces of the country's two governments.
A military aircraft belonging to the Libyan National Army forces has reportedly targeted Mitiga airport, located in the Libyan capital’s eastern suburb. Commanded by Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar the group challenged the government in Tripoli for power.

The Libyan authorities confirmed that the airport was closed following the airstrike, but provided no additional information on casualties or damage resulting from it. Mitiga has been the only airport used for international flights since the capital’s international airport was destroyed back in 2014.

Expected bloodbath in Tripoli an outcome of ill-advised NATO toppling of Gaddafi, historian tells RT

Libya is back in the headlines after one of its two competing governments sent troops towards Tripoli. If another bloodbath happens there, it will be the inevitable result of the 2011 NATO bombing campaign, an expert told RT.
The Northern African country was once stable and quite prosperous thanks to large revenues from oil trade. But since 2011, when NATO supported a militant uprising and helped topple, then kill, longtime strongman leader Muammar Gaddafi, it remains a fractured failed state. Last week, the unending feuds between rival factions escalated, with Khalifa Haftar, a powerful military commander, launching an offensive against his rivals from the UN-recognized government in Tripoli.

The general is unlikely to immediately heed calls for a political settlement, believes US political commentator and historian Gerald Horne. This may escalate into a major battle in the capital.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please remember; Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, was cheer-leading for Gaddafi's removal, and by any means necessary; once he had been assassinated, this threw the country into turmoil in 2011, and 8 years on, the turmoil continues.

This was one of the most spectacular "epic fails" of Clinton's tenure as Secretary of State, and ... if (God help us, no), she decides to run for President, and wins, one has to wonder; what other spectacular defects in her logic and vision will she demonstrate to both this country and the world?!?

I am looking at many of the possible geopolitical situations here which could go "mammary glands up" in a heartbeat, if unsound, or truly monumentally bad decisions are made by this country's leadership about how the US should approach challenges abroad.

So color me nervous about Libya right now; there are many factions looking at what seizing Tripoli, and the country, could mean for them, economically; and I would rather suspect that the US government is standing right in front of that line, trying to figure out how best to conjure a Lybia 2.0 invasion, but struggling to find ways which potentially insure, that the optics of such an invasion...appear to be a very different kind of animal, let's say, for example, like perhaps several battalions of enraged, GMO'd kangaroos, covertly chucking death stars out their pouches.

BUT, MIND YOU, THIS WILL NOT BE AN INVASION!!

But seriously, I have to wonder, if I had family in Libya, how I would get them out, or get them to safety, if the airports are ordered closed because of an on-coming military attack? If I had kids, or medically fragile elderly members who needed special care, and attention.

These are the kinds of brutal choices many families in the Middle East, Africa, and South Asia must make on a daily basis; but for me, the worst of this is, that these decisions are far too frequently a direct result of US foreign policy in their countries.

Time will, of course, resolve this; but to see so many people throughout the Middle East are are suffering, and will suffer so catastrophically because the international battles for their oil (usually courtesy of the Unhinged, Surveilled State of America).

I know that I am a citizen of a country whose leadership is very comfortable with being war criminals. As a Christian Pacifist, I never advocate violence.

But my suggestion here, is that my brother and sister Americans, need, urgently, to have a national conversation about what we can do (again peacefully) to assist our government in creating a different tone of its foreign policies, which might resemble a reasonably sane foreign policy.

Sanity in foreign policy tends to lead to peaceful, amicable relations with a country's neighbors, and the world.

This government desperately needs to rediscover what that means.

In American politics, the “southern strategy” refers to efforts by the Republican Party and its candidates to win presidential elections since 1964 by appealing to conservative whites (especially white southerners) disaffected with the Democratic Party by its strong embrace of civil rights laws in the 1960s and its racially egalitarian policies since.

Sieff: The Most Dangerous Thing Trump Could Do Now Is Let Down His Guard

Uneasy Hangs the Head That Wears a Crown: The Lessons Donald Trump Needs to Learn from William Shakespeare.

Now that President Donald Trump has finally been exonerated from the always farcical Big Lie of Collusion with Russia in the 2016 election, the US leader had better watch out: The Deep State will really go after him now that it's supposed Soft Coup plot has failed.

Who can never afford to rest.

The forces opposed to Trump and his decent, sensible 2016 campaign vision of defusing tensions with Russia worked viciously, relentlessly and long to discredit the 45th President of the United States before he could even get going. The idea that they are now going to sit back like good losers because their entire pyramid of lies on Collusion with Russia has been exposed is ludicrous.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What these masters of destruction have accomplished through their reprehensively divisive actions and false accusations, has been to to encourage future wars, by betting on unstable, hubristic, sociopathic national leaders like Israel's Bibi Netanyahu; creating "regime changes",for example, when Ukraine's Yanukovich was thrown under the proverbial bus in order to "anoint" Pyotr Poroshenko; or cheerleading for new wars to start, like former Polish General Waldemar Skrzypczak, when he talks, fondly, of a US pre-emptive strike against Russia being "moral"

I would also like to politely point out to people like Adam Schiff and Nancy Pelosi, that every second they spend in this deplorable attempt to "cut a sitting President at the knees" (a literary reference, for those of you who didn't know), you are not doing what We the People hired you to do, which is to take care of the people you allegedly represent.

And I will tell you, in no uncertain terms one absolute, and immutable truth; the broad, deep, and dispassionate lens of history (if this planet survives these machinations to actually have a future) will judge you and your actions as criminal in the extreme.

But, of course, your alleged "constituents" never ever mattered in the first place, did they?!?

Winning a seat in the US Congress is much akin to buying the winning lottery ticket, with all the money, all the perks, and all the intel to turn you into a multi-millionaire.

It is a startling revelation of how many members of Congress are actually millionaires; and they can all be found, including their net worth, here:

Russiagate: A Moral Reckoning Is Due

Authored by Renee Parsons via Off-Guardian.org,

With Russiagate, the Democrats created some powerful karma to answer for; especially for the likes of Rep. Adam Schiff and Rep. Eric Swalwell, (D-Calif.), both of whom persist in the mindless search for the Holy Grail.

After cheating Bernie out of the nomination in 2016, the Dems had not yet learned their karmic lesson when they lost the Presidential election. The Mueller Report is but the latest of that karmic reckoning.

There is no pride in being one of those who “got it right” that there was no evidence, not a scintilla of material fact to prove collusion between the Trump campaign and the dastardly Russians. As the country has been torn asunder by a two year politically tainted investigation begun with no evidentiary standard and no probable cause, there is little satisfaction to be gained.

Trump's Neocons See Erdogan As Their Ticket To A Region-Wide MidEast War

Authored by Mike Whitney via The Unz Review,

Turkish troops and armored units are massed along Turkey’s southern border awaiting orders to invade northern Syria. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan wants to clear a ten mile-deep swath of land east of the Euphrates River in order to remove terrorist-linked militants (YPG) currently occupying the territory. The proposed offensive would put US Special Forces in the line of fire which significantly increases the likelihood of US casualties. If American troops are killed or wounded by the Turkish operation, Washington will respond in force leading to a potentially catastrophic face-off between the two NATO allies. The possibility of a violent clash between Turkey and the United States has never been greater than it is today.

One has to wonder, in terms of the neocons, if plans are already in play for a "false flag" here, to be blamed on Turkey, as the US "provocation/justification" for an attack against it.

Dicey in the extreme?? But possible, as a way of distracting American voters who are fed up with Russiagate; stagnating salaries; and the horrific hardening of political lines in this country where, to some people, beating up someone who disagrees with you is a perfectly rational thing to do?!?

You bet your sweet bippy!!

And let us not forget that in tomorrow's Israeli election, Prime Minister Netanyahu is betting on re-election for a 5th term, in spite of corruption charges being laid against him.

He could really use international focus going...elsewhere.

Deal Of The Century (*UPDATE)

As Benjamin Netanyahu returns from Washington to Jerusalem determined to keep his seat as Israel’s prime minister, it is clear that the Final Status issues — those pesky issues between Israel and the Palestinians that Israel never wants to discuss – are being eliminated one by one in a regional scheme that is titled Deal of the Century. This so-called “Deal” will be the final undoing of Palestinian hopes for justice, self-determination and return

After Golan, are Trump and Netanyahu coming for West Bank?

A warning: If Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is still in office in late 2020 or 2024, when President Donald Trump’s time in office is coming to a close, there is a good chance the two leaders will declare American recognition of Israeli annexation of all or most of the occupied West Bank.

The precedent for such a move was put in place Monday as two significant anti-Arab events took place in Washington.

First, at the annual AIPAC conference, Democratic and Republican speakers alike ignored the Israeli occupation of Palestinian and Arab territory, choosing instead to rail against Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, who has been vilified for openly criticizing the powerful Israel lobby group’s outsize influence.

A bipartisan consensus pretended that AIPAC was being silenced, turning on its head the reality that the organization is supporting legislation seeking to silence supporters of Palestinian rights.

Is this the final showdown for control of Libyan oil?

We have seen many final battles of the Libyan Civil War, and yet, it continues on. There is more then a hint of foreign involvement, as the Libyan people would have exhausted themselves into a settlement before now.

Welcome to Neocolonialism in the 21st century. Tripoli appears to be up for grabs with General Haftar’s three pronged advance on the capital, but no major fighting along fixed lines has begun.

It is anyone’s guess at this point, and you will not see me betting even a dollar on how all this will play out. Libya is nothing if not unpredictable. But for the Libyan people, I hope their political suffering is over soon…>>>

AMERICAN INTERNET COMPANIES ARE PRIVATIZED INSTRUMENTS OF AMERICAN GEOPOLITICAL POWER, AND THEY’RE NOT EVEN HIDING IT

Perhaps the one positive thing that’s come out of RussiaGate is that no one believes Silicon Valley’s global utopianism anymore.

Originally published at Yasha Levine’s Influence Ops

I was in the New York Public Library recently doing research in the archives when I stumbled on a 1944 pamphlet from Western Electric, the old American techno-telephone monopolist. It’s called “Circuits for Victory” and its 40 glossy, slickly produced pages are dedicated to one thing: celebrating all the ways that the company’s telecommunication technology helps the United States government fight and win wars.

The pamphlet is a historical document, but if you squint at it right and replace “Western Electric” with, say, “Facebook” or “Google” or “Amazon,” you actually get an accurate sense of what Silicon Valley monopolies are today: privatized extensions of American Empire.

UK TO FINE FACEBOOK, GOOGLE FOR HOSTING TERRORIST CONTENT

The cat and mouse game between the world's largest media company and global governments continues.
Just days after Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg called for more government regulation in an attempt to mollify the company's growing critics, while seeking to squash smaller competitors as well as give governments a legitimate reason to enforce censorship and chip away at freedom of speech in order to comply with Facebook's mysterious "community standards", the company and its tech peers are facing a new UK law that will impose "substantial" fines, or even ban companies if they don’t act swiftly enough to remove content that encourages terrorism and child sexual exploitation and abuse.

A DRUG RESISTANT “SUPER FUNGUS” KILLS NEARLY HALF THE PEOPLE IT INFECTS – AND IT IS SPREADING ACROSS AMERICA

SOURCE: THE ECONOMIC COLLAPSE

The medical community knew that a day of reckoning was coming. For years, they were repeatedly warned that the rampant overuse of certain types of medications would result in the development of “super diseases” that we would not be able to stop, and now that day has arrived. Just like many types of bacteria, fungi have also been developing defenses against our most effective modern medicines. One in particular, a fungus known as Candida auris, is now a massive public health threat. An expert quoted by the New York Times has admitted that it is “pretty much unbeatable”, it spreads very easily, and it kills close to 50 percent of the people that it infects. In other words, we are in the early chapters of a medical horror show of our own making, and there is no way out.

Candida auris (or C. auris for short) spreads most easily among those with weakened immune systems. Infants, seniors, smokers and diabetics are among the most vulnerable.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please educate yourself on what natural methods you can use to keep yourself healthier. There are a number of responsible, logical sites which can give you places to go, and natural things to do to boost your immunity.

THE MANAGEMENT OF SAVAGERY: PRO-WAR LOBBYISTS PUSH TO BAN BOOK EXPOSING REGIME CHANGE WARS

Authored by Alexander Rubinstein via MintPress News

The Syrian American Council and a collection of pro-war lobbyists have led an intimidation campaign aimed at bullying a major Washington-based bookstore, Politics and Prose, into canceling award-winning journalist and author Max Blumenthal’s launch event for his new book The Management of Savagery.

And it appears to have worked. Politics and Prose announced that it would “postpone” the event, citing “concerns” over the event’s “format, substance, … [and] security” in a tweet. In a testament to the ferocity of the harassment campaign against the small chain, the company has pinned the statement to the top of its Twitter page so that anyone visiting it sees immediately that they caved.

US calls for 'immediate halt' to Libya fighting

Libya's GNA forces announce 'counteroffensive' to defend Tripoli

Army of Tripoli-based government vows to reclaim all areas seized by forces loyal to renegade General Khalifa Haftar.

The army behind Libya's UN-backed government has announced a counteroffensive to defend Tripoli, vowing to reclaim all areas seized by forces loyal to renegade General Khalifa Haftar, who have been marching on the outskirts of the capital.

Colonel Mohamed Gnounou told reporters in Tripoli on Sunday that the counteroffensive, dubbed "Volcano of Anger", was aimed at "purging all Libyan cities of aggressor and illegitimate forces".

The announcement came as Haftar's forces said they conducted the first air raid on a Tripoli suburb as part of their aim to overthrow the internationally-recognised Government of National Accord (GNA) and control Tripoli.

The alleged attack came after GNA forces launched air raids on Haftar's self-styled Libyan National Army (LNA) around 50km south of Tripoli on Saturday, reportedly killing one person.
