Here's the Anti-Joe Biden Ad That Biden's Team Tried To Get Banned from Facebook

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s team isn’t terribly thrilled about a new ad being run by President Donald Trump’s campaign. The Biden campaign got CNN to refuse to run it, though that’s hardly a stunner.

Meghan McCain Silences Liberal Laughter on 'The View': Trey Gowdy Is 'Good News for Trump, Bad News for Democrats'

The liberal coven that makes up the ABC daytime show on culture and politics gave itself a good cackle Wednesday at the idea that former Rep. Trey Gowdy is joining President Donald Trump’s legal team at the White House.

5G Cell Phone Radiation: How the Telecom Companies Are Losing the Battle to Impose 5G Against the Will of the People

They thought that if they called their new, alleged “communications technology”, adapted from the military Active Denial Technology, “5G” or fifth generation, the public would just assume that it was more of the same as 4G, 3G or 2G. And if they could characterise the rollout as a race, the public would not have enough time to find out what a killer technology 5G is. How wrong they were! Not only has the public found out, but now they know how lethal previous generations of wireless technology – to be used concurrently with 5G – are as well.

Trump Tells Bankrupt UN to Find Money Elsewhere

Facing a massive hole in its budget, the United Nations is implementing “emergency measures” to avoid missing payroll and other obligations before the end of the year.

But Trump was unmoved by the whining. “So make all Member Countries pay, not just the United States!” he fumed on Twitter in his typical style. Prior to that, speaking at the UN in New York City, Trump told “world leaders” last month that the UN needed to ensure that “no member state shoulders a disproportionate share of the burden.”

TRUMP CAN GET BOTH IMPEACHED AND REELECTED. HERE'S HOW | OPINION

Impeachment is pretty much the same as indictment. It's conviction in the Senate Trump has to worry about.It may never get that far.

With Congress and President Trump hurtling to a potential impeachment vote at the same time as the country is gearing up for a brutal presidential election battle, there is an odd possibility—albeit an unlikely one—that Trump could be removed by impeachment, but then come back to regain the presidency a few months later, in the 2020 election.

This improbable result comes from the reality that the law of impeachment does not automatically prevent an impeached and convicted official from running again, which Trump could be able to do as a Republican or Independent candidate come November.

6 Ways The Salem Witch Trials Were Fairer Than Democrats’ Impeachment Inquiry

Attorney Greg Jarrett recently wrote, “It is Pelosi and Schiff who are abusing the power of impeachment in their latest ‘witch hunt.’” This is wildly historically inaccurate. Jarrett should immediately apologize to the memory of the prosecutors of the 17th-century Massachusetts witch trials.

This is because House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Rep. Adam Schiff are currently running their Ukraine impeachment farce with far less due process than the superstitious and backwards legal system offered the “witches” of Salem.

Below are a few examples of how Jarrett has unfairly slandered the jurisprudence of 17th-century Massachusetts.

Trump Is History and So Is the USA

Paul Craig Roberts

When I read this evening in The Hill, which I mistakenly thought was a legitimate news publication rather than a weapon against President Trump and the Republicans, that the documented fact that Joe Biden and his son received between them $1,750,000 for preventing any Ukrainian investigation of the corrupt firm Burisma was mere unsupported “allegation,” and that the Trump Department of Justice had indicted two associates of Rudy Giuliana, President Trump’s most fervent supporter, for “campaign finance violations,” a very elastic term, it became completely clear that Trump’s own Justice (sic) Department is part of the Deep State’s plot to destroy Trump.

REPORT: Whistleblower Worked With Joe Biden When He Was Vice President

According to a report from the Washington Examiner, the CIA operative blowing the whistle on Trump for calling out corruption by Joe Biden and his family used to work with Joe Biden while he was vice president.

Lawyers for the whistleblower said he had worked only "in the executive branch." The Washington Examiner has established that he is a career CIA analyst who was detailed to the National Security Council at the White House and has since left. On Sept. 26, the New York Times reported that he was a CIA officer. On Oct. 4, the newspaper added that he "was detailed to the National Security Council at one point."

Palestinian hunger striker details ‘physical and psychological’ torture in Israeli prison

Palestinians are expressing outrage after hunger-striking prisoner Heba al-Labadi, 24, revealed new details surrounding her interrogation by Israeli forces and numerous torture tactics used on her in order to force her to end her strike.

Al-Labadi, a Palestinian-Jordanian national, was detained by Israeli forces on August 20th at the Allenby Bridge border crossing while she was traveling with her mother, on their way to attend a family wedding in the West Bank. She has been on a hunger strike in protest of her detention for 15 days.

Jeff Bezos’s Master Plan

At the heart of this faith is a text Bezos read as a teen. In 1976, a Princeton physicist named Gerard K. O’Neill wrote a populist case for moving into space called The High Frontier, a book beloved by sci-fi geeks, NASA functionaries, and aging hippies. As a Princeton student, Bezos attended O’Neill seminars and ran the campus chapter of Students for the Exploration and Development of Space. Through Blue Origin, Bezos is developing detailed plans for realizing O’Neill’s vision.

It is now being reported that, in some cases, the women did not want to give up their children.

Winston Churchill – Traitor and Murderer

“World history: There are two world histories. One is the official and full of lies, destined to be taught in schools – the other is the secret history, which harbours the true causes and occurrences.” Honore de Balzac

Winston Churchill; the man voted in a newspaper poll as the ‘greatest ever Englishman,’ was actually an evil, self-serving, narcissistic, opportunistic, hypocritical, treacherous, traitorous, perverted paedophile and a murdering psychopath.

Preposterous you say? Read on and see if you still believe this statement to be untrue at the end of this article…

The truth about Winston Churchill is that he was a menace to liberty, and a disaster for Britain, for Europe, for the United States of America, and for Western civilisation itself.

Waging War on Iran Would Be Madness

All nations the US doesn’t control are on its target list for regime change, especially challengers to its hegemonic aims like China and Russia, along with oil rich ones like Iran and Venezuela.

That’s what US hostility toward these countries is all about, not because of a national security threat they pose — other than supporting multi-world polarity, conflicting with US hegemonic unipolar aims, a notion whose time has passed.

Iran can’t match US military power, but its capabilities can hit back hard against aggressors anywhere in the region.

Damascus vows to confront 'brutal' Turkish aggression by all legal means

“After his continuous support for terrorism in Syria, training, arming, protecting and sending terrorists to kill Syrians, the head of the Turkish regime came up today with statements that can only be made by a person detached from reality. He speaks of his commitment to protect Syrian people whilst he has the blood of the Syrian people killed by terrorists on his hands,” Syria’s official news agency SANA cited an unnamed source at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates as saying in a statement on Thursday.

Ankara views the US-backed YPG as a terrorist organization tied to the homegrown Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) militant group, which has been seeking an autonomous Kurdish region in Turkey since 1984.

The YPG constitutes the backbone of the so-called Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), an anti-Damascus alliance of predominantly Kurdish militants.

Return to Russia: Crimeans Tell the Real Story of the 2014 Referendum and Their Lives Since

IMFEROPOL, CRIMEA — In early August I traveled to Russia for the first time, partly out of interest in seeing some of the vast country with a tourist’s eyes, partly to do some journalism in the region. It also transpired that while in Moscow I was able to interview Maria Zakharova, spokeswoman of the Foreign Ministry.

High on my travel list, however, was to visit Crimea and Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) — the former a part of Russia, the latter an autonomous republic in the east of Ukraine, neither accurately depicted in Western reporting. Or at least that was my sense looking at independent journalists’ reports and those in Russian media.

A scenario for impeachment and more

The more I hear the rhetoric of the Democratic candidates for Massa (POTUS), the Congressional Democrats, and the mainstream media, the more convinced I am that they are indeed pushing for a coup.

Yes, The Donald is a disaster as POTUS. He is immoral, mercurial, and a loose cannon. He terrifies people. Including a good many foreigners.

U.S. “Military Aid” to Al Qaeda, ISIS-Daesh

Author’s Note and Update

This article was first published by Global Research on October 2, 2016.

The United States and its allies use arms trafficking –i.e. the unregulated illicit trade in light weapons through private traders including organized crime–, to channel large amounts of weapons and ammunition to the terrorists inside Syria.

The US led coalition uses the illicit trade in light weaponry produced in Eastern Europe, the Balkans, China, etc. for delivery to rebel groups inside Syria, including ISIS-Daesh and Al Nusra. In turn, operating out of the occupied Golan Heights, Israel’s IDF has provided weapons, ammunition, logistical support to Al Qaeda rebels operating in Southern Syria.

Best Linux laptops of 2019: the top open-source notebooks

For some people, going with the best Linux laptops is the way to go, contrary to popular opinion that Microsoft’s Windows and Apple’s macOS are the only options for a notebook operating system. With this guide, we’re going to dive into the best laptops that are specifically built for the open-source operating system.

There aren’t any mainstream notebook vendors, beyond Dell at least, that offer Linux as a base OS option on a new laptop. This leaves us with other smaller manufacturers, which can carve out a niche for themselves with the best Linux laptops.

Plus, you can still install Linux on pretty much any laptop, even though some manufacturers lock down their products, making installing Linux kind of a pain.

We picked out five of the best Linux laptops on the market right now, all of which have been fine-tuned to run some of the best Linux distros (like Ubuntu, for instance). That means they’re guaranteed run the open-source OS out of the box without any tinkering.

Concentrated Cannabis: 4 Ways to Make Hash at Home

Why Make Hash?
Making hash is a wonderful method of preserving resin long after cannabis has been harvested. Whether in the kitchen or in the lab, hash making is a process that is available to everyone. Using old school methods or new school techniques, the process is relatively straightforward — agitate to remove trichomes, collect the resin, sort the resin by size, dry the resin, smoke and enjoy!

Tesla owners in California get a warning to charge their cars before the power goes out

Pacific General & Electric (PG&E) is cutting power across large swaths of Northern California, including the Bay Area, in a drastic bid to prevent wildfires.

Now Tesla is warning people that before they settle into their outage outrage, they should really charge up their electric cars.

You see, electric cars are great options—except when there is no way to power them up.

But instead of simply falling to the ground, the bird crashes into the man's genitals.

Millions Brace for Unprecedented Power Cuts in California

It was a once-unthinkable move: purposely shutting off power to millions of people and plunging a major metropolitan area into darkness.

And yet, on Wednesday, utility PG&E Corp. began cutting electricity to almost 800,000 California homes and businesses -- representing roughly 2.4 million people -- to prevent wildfires as high winds are forecast to whip through the state. The outages will hit 34 counties, including much of the San Francisco Bay area, triggering a scramble by residents to prepare for what may be days without power.

Absent-minded James Bond film crew sparks TERROR SCARE at UK air base, get hundreds evacuated

A crew shooting the latest James Bond installment caused mass panic at the UK’s largest Royal Air Force (RAF) base, after careless workers left their van at the military facility following a day of filming.

Brize Norton airbase was hosting technicians working on scenes for ‘No Time To Die’, but the routine film shoot seems to have gone terribly awry. The crew reportedly left a van at the base that had an expired security pass. The discovery of the sketchy van sent the base into crisis mode, prompting the evacuation of an estimated 400 people while sniffer dogs and bomb squads combed the area.

Onesimus: The Slave Who Brought Inoculation To America And Saved The Country

Smallpox was a singularly devastating disease in the 18th century, killing up to 30% of those infected within mere days or weeks of contamination. The virus was unique to other epidemics, at least in how people understood the disease. It was obviously spread from person to person without any needed carrier, as in the case of rats and the bubonic plague. It took down every kind of person, "both male and female, both old and young, both strong and weak, both white and black." It was responsible for reducing the Native American population by over 50% in the centuries after European contact. Initially, there was little to be done about the killer disease. Their best guess at treatment was bloodletting, which was kind of the duct tape of 18th-century medicine, so usually, they were resigned to managing symptoms.

Charles Henry Dow: The Man Who Created Modern Economics

Every time you discuss stocks and the movement of the financial market, you probably refer to the Dow Jones, or maybe even just the Dow. The Dow Jones Industrial Average is a measurement of the stock performances of the 30 largest companies listed on the U.S. stock exchange. Contrary to popular belief, Dow Jones was not the name of the person who founded this organization. It was a merger of two of the last names of the three founders of the Down Jones Industrial Average. Those three gentlemen were Charles Henry Dow, Edward Jones, and Charles Bergstresser. Let's take a look at one of these men, Charles Henry Dow.

Cracks on wing supports found on at least 36 older Boeing 737 jets, American & Brazil airlines ground planes

An urgent worldwide inspection of Boeing 737 NG models has found that some 36 aircraft had cracks in a structure connecting the plane’s wings to its fuselage. The US’s Southwest Airlines and Brazil’s GOL have grounded 13 jets.

The Next Generation or NG model is an older but nonetheless popular version of the 737, with hundreds of the jetliners operated by airlines worldwide. The inspection ordered by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) examined 686 planes that made more than 35,000 flights cumulatively, and found 5 percent of them had cracks in their pickle fork, a component that helps attach the wing and serves as a primary load bearing element.

“This condition could adversely affect the structural integrity of the airplane and result in loss of control of the airplane,” the FAA said in September, when it announced the inspection order.

FBI misused surveillance data, spied on its own, FISA ruling finds

In an October 2018 ruling unsealed and posted on October 8, 2019 by the Office of the Director of Intelligence, the United States Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) found that the employees of the Federal Bureau of Investigation had inappropriately used data collected under Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA). The FBI was found to have misused surveillance data to look into American residents, including other FBI employees and their family members, making large-scale queries that did not distinguish between US persons and foreign intelligence targets.

The revelation drew immediate outcry from privacy advocates and renewed calls for the termination of FISA and USA FREEDOM Act that authorized bulk intelligence collection.

Comey’s Daughter Works in SDNY where Trump’s being investigated

Maurene (Ryan) Comey (Issarachoff), an Assistant United States Attorney in the Southern District of New York (SDNY), is the 30-year old daughter of disgraced former FBI Director James Comey. James Comey is a mortal enemy of President Trump’s.

The SDNY, where Comey’s daughter works, has taken over where the Mueller probe left off and, unlike Robert Mueller, they have no limitations if they engage in a witch hunt.

Maurene Comey graduated from Harvard as a Doctor of Law after graduating Phi Beta Kappa from The College of William and Mary. She’s qualified.

One of six children of James Comey and his wife, she, along with her mother and sisters, voted for Hillary Clinton. When Clinton lost, Patricia Failor, her mother, was “devastated” according to James Comey.
