SYRIAN WAR REPORT – MAY 17, 2017: US-LED BLOCK STARTS MEDIA CAMPAIGN AGAINST SYRIAN GOVERNMENT

On Tuesday, the Syrian Army and the National Defense Forces (NDF) captured two small villages near the recently liberated Jirah Military Airbase in the province of Aleppo. The army and the NDF took control of Bayloneh and Jarrah Sagir located west of the airbase at the road heading to the town of Tabqah. Government forces liberated the Jirah Military Base from ISIS last weekend. Since then, they have been preparing for further advances against ISIS terrorists in the province.

Israeli Housing and Construction Minister Yoav Galant has called to assasinate Syrian President Bashar Assad. Galant made the statement speaking at a conference outside Jerusalem amid the recent US allegations that Syrian security forces were conducting mass executions and were burning the bodies of the “victims.” He called that Assad’s alleged actions are a “genocide” with “hundreds of thousands killed.”

COMPLY OR LOSE YOUR JOB – HR 1313 WOULD FORCE VACCINATION AND DNA SUBMISSION

A new bill, HR 1313, has been introduced by North Carolina Congresswoman Virginia Foxx which is designed to give employers absolute power over the employee by mandating whatever they deem to be proper “heath prevention” measures. These measures would include submitting DNA records as well as mandatory vaccinations and other perceived “health preventive” measures designed for the “greater good” of the general public. The result of not complying with this new law of course would be losing your job.

New Theory Behind Stalled Economy: Retirees Are Hoarding Too Much Cash

For years we've written about the fact that Americans, young to old, are lousy savers (see "Retirement Crisis Looms As Average U.S. Household Has Saved $2,500 For Retirement"). Of course, they have to be because how else can a mature economy continue to grow unless every single person levers every asset they own to the maximum extent possible and then spends all of that money? Anything less would mean that all of Janet Yellen's efforts have been a colossal waste. Meanwhile, this inherent inability to save is awful news for a nation that faces a massive wave of baby boomer retirements over the next 20 years.

US Strike Group Headed by USS Ronald Reagan Begins Patrol in Indo-Asia-Pacific

The Balfour Declaration – A Century of Jewish Power

This year, Palestinians and their supporters mark the 100th anniversary of The Balfour Declaration, a written statement from the United Kingdom's Foreign Secretary, Arthur James Balfour, to Walter Rothschild, a leader of the British Jewish community, in favour of the establishment of a Jewish national home in Palestine.

For Palestinians, The Balfour Declaration was the beginning of their plight: a century of ethnic cleansing at the hands of European newcomers who claim Palestine as their historic home. Yet, for some reason, supporters of the Palestinians are desperate to suppress discussion of the motivation for the Balfour Declaration - how and why did it come about?

Bill Clinton first US President to fire FBI head; Deputy WH Counsel & Hillary’s lover VINCE FOSTER [was murdered]

USS Carl Vinson to Remain Near Shores of Korean Peninsula in Open-Ended Mission

The US aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson strike group, which has been stationed near the Korean peninsula since April, will remain deployed in the region for an indefinite period in the light of Pyongyang’s recent nuclear missile test, local media reported Tuesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Call me silly, but "indefinite deployment" of the USS Carl Vinson strike group does not auger well for peace, particularly in light of the following disturbing development:

Seoul May Launch Preemptive Strike in Case of ‘Imminent’ Pyongyang Attack

The article goes on to state: "South Korea may carry out a preemptive strike if it becomes evident that North Korea will launch a massive missile attack against the country, South Korean Defense Minister Han Min-koo said Tuesday".

This statement appears to be completely at odds with South Korean President-elect Moon's "Sunshine Policy", which favors engagement with North Korea, almost as though Defense Minister Han "didn't get the memo".

So I have to wonder: Is Defense Minister Han DC's "Man" in South Korea?!? What could possibly be the agenda of making a threat like this, other than to provoke Kim Jun-un to do something completely, and irrevocably stupid?

The short answer is, there is no other reason; and that is cause for concern.

CIA is world’s most dangerously incompetent spy agency – Assange

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has described the CIA as “dangerously incompetent,” in response to the US agency branding him a “friend of terrorists.” The war of words started after RT asked the CIA to comment on reports of its hacking exploits.

“Dictators and terrorists have no better friend in the world than Julian Assange, as theirs is the only privacy he protects,” CIA spokesperson Heather Fritz Horniak told RT in an email.

The scathing response came after RT asked the CIA to comment on the assessment of former agency analyst Ray McGovern. He suggested that the capability to falsify digital fingerprints, exposed by WikiLeaks as part of its ongoing Vault 7 disclosure, cast doubt on allegations against Russia in connection with the 2016 US presidential election.

Is Microsoft to blame for the largest ransomware attacks in internet history?

Writing in The New York Times over the weekend, sociologist Zeynep Tufekci placed the blame squarely on Microsoft for its decision to stop supporting older Windows versions. “Companies like Microsoft should discard the idea that they can abandon people using older software,” Tufekci wrote. “Industry norms are lousy to horrible, and it is reasonable to expect a company with a dominant market position, that made so much money selling software that runs critical infrastructure, to do more.”

ZDNet was even harsher. “The real problem here is that for decades the IT industry as a whole has been selling rubbish products,” a post argued. “It's become fabulously wealthy by making products that are broken to begin with, and often, directly or indirectly, charging customers to fix them.”

Judicial Watch Sues DOJ For FBI Records on ‘Trump Dossier’

Judicial Watch announced today that it filed a FOIA lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Justice for records of communications and payments between the FBI and former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele and his private firm, Orbis Business Intelligence

This is the fifth Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit (see here, here, here, here) related to the surveillance, unmasking, and illegal leaking targeting President Trump and his associates.

The suit was filed after the Department of Justice failed to respond to a March 8, 2017, FOIA request seeking:

All records of communications between any official, employee, or representative of the FBI and Mr. Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence officer and the owner of the private firm Orbis Business Intelligence.

All records related to the proposed, planned, or actual payment of any funds to Mr. Steele and/or Orbis Business Intelligence.

He later got decrypted by the helpline because they thought they have largely overestimated the nation's income.

Are They Really Out to Get Trump?

The rationale Trump haters have fabricated is simple: the president and his team colluded with the Russians to rig the 2016 election in his favor, which, if true, would provide grounds for impeachment. The driving force, in terms of the argument being made, is that removing Trump must be done “for the good of the country” and to “correct a mistake made by the American voters.” The mainstream media is completely on board of the process, including the outlets that flatter themselves by describing their national stature, most notably the New York Times and Washington Post.

So what is to be done? For starters, until Donald Trump has unambiguously broken a law the critics should take a Valium and relax.

Serious vulnerability in Google Chrome on Windows could expose user credentials

Spotted by Bosko Stankovic, an information security engineer at DefenseCode LLC, the vulnerability in the default configuration of the latest version of Chrome allows malicious websites to trick users into downloading a .scf (Shell Command File format) file without prompting the user as it would typically do with other types of downloads. By bypassing this option, the malicious .scf file lies dormant in the downloads directory until a victim opens the directory, at which point the file automatically runs without the user having to click on it.

Once up and running, the file allows the attacker to gain access to a victim’s username and Microsoft LAN Manager password hash. That leaves the victim open to attacks, including a so-called Server Message Block relay attack that allows the hacker to use the credentials to authenticate to a personal computer or network resource.

Spread of combat, cholera wreaks misery, collapse in Yemen

Spilling into the hallways of crowded Yemeni hospitals, children writhe in pain from cholera. Displaced villagers roam baking hot plains and barren mountains to evade warring militias.

The escalating outbreak of disease and displacement of tens of thousands by recent fighting has inflamed one of the world's worst humanitarian crises, pushing Yemen's war-pummeled society ever nearer to collapse.

Cholera - a diarrheal disease spread by food or water tainted with human faeces - has killed 180 people in less than three weeks, according to the Geneva-based International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).

Samira Ali, a worried mother, expressed shock at the scene at Sabaeen Hospital in Sanaa, the ancient capital in the north held by the armed Houthi movement since late 2015.

"My young son suddenly started suffering from severe diarrhea. We went to the hospital and found it full, we couldn't find a place," said Ali, a teacher.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder if this pandemic was deliberately started by the Saudi coalition, through fouling Yemen's water sources; it has been certainly been done before:

During the closing stages of the Rhodesian Bush War, the Rhodesian government resorted to use chemical and biological warfare agents. Watercourses at several sites inside the Mozambique border were deliberately contaminated with cholera.

As death from malnutrition stalks the country, because the US-enabled Saudi military have blocked Yemeni ports, meaning food cannot get in, starving children are most likely to get sick and die more quickly.

Images: Yemeni children starving to death from malnutrition

And yet, the House of Saud; the Saudi Government; the Saudi Military; the US government and US military are completely morally comfortable with these horrific deaths by malnutrition, now coupled with this cholera pandemic.

So I have to ask myself: what kind of monsters are these people for whom the indirect slaughter and genocide of innocent kids, from malnutrition and cholera, is perfectly fine?!?

BEX ALERT - ‘You probably don’t leak the worst memo first’: Ex-DOJ official predicts Comey has more dirt on Trump

A former Department of Justice official promised MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that ousted FBI director James Comey has even more damaging evidence against President Donald Trump.

Matthew Miller, a former communications director for the Justice Department and spokesman for former attorney general Eric Holder, warned the Trump administration last week that Comey kept meticulous notes when he believed there was evidence of wrongdoing.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Given that nothing was ever found in the Flynn investigation, it makes no sense that Trump would have asked for it to be stopped. Something tells me that we are seeing Comey's attempt at revenge.

Sheldon Adelson 'Furious' at Tillerson Over Delay in U.S. Embassy Move

Sheldon Adelson, the Republican mega-donor who gave tens of millions of dollars to President Donald Trump's election campaign and then added another five million to Trump's inauguration committee, is once again angry at the president he helped elect - according to a report published on Sunday in the newsletter Axios.

Adelson, according to the report, told people close to him that he was "furious" at the comments made by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on NBC's "Meet the Press." Tillerson said in an interview that President Trump was deliberating whether fulfilling his election promise to move the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem would help the prospect of reaching an Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement, or hurt it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Poor little Sheldon, not getting what he thought he paid for?!?

Mr. Adelson, a word, please: such a move would destroy any possibility of an Israel/Palestinian peace agreement.

But you already knew that, which is why you want such a move to go forward.

This would signal the complete American government's betrayal of the Palestinians, whose possibility of existing as a nation-state has already been preempted by the way in which Jewish-only settlements have been created, so that no contiguous state of Palestine can exist.

South Korea Wants to Reopen Communications With North

Since his election last week, South Korean President Moon Jae-in has repeatedly made clear he wants to improve relations with North Korea. To that end, South Korean officials say their immediate priority is to reopen the lines of communication with them at all.

The biggest obstacle to doing that is the United States, and President Moon is dispatching a new Ambassador to DC. President Trump has made clear that he believes diplomacy has “failed,” and that he would only accept any discussions with North Korea under very limited circumstances, which other officials suggested meant they had to stop materially everything the US finds objectionable.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Deep State in the Unhinged Surveilled States of America will do everything in its power to prevent this from happening.

So President Moon, a word please; kindly double, or treble, the personal protection detail you have around you.

The US government, and its agents, are not above assassinating heads of state they believe are not "in tune" with their agenda.

Just look at what happened to Libya's Qaddafi.

Please be communicating, diplomatically, with your Chinese counterparts, to see how they can help open the door for this dialogue to being with North Korea.

Because at the end of the day, it is only dialogue, and not war, which can achieve positive changes here.

GAO: Thousands discharged for military misconduct had mental health diagnosis

The top government watchdog said Tuesday that nearly a quarter of U.S. troops discharged for misconduct were given other-than-honorable discharges despite previously being diagnosed with a mental health condition.

The Government Accountability Office (GAO) in its report faulted branches of the Department of Defense (DOD) for having policies inconsistent with — or poor enforcement of — official Pentagon rules for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), traumatic brain injury (TBI) or sexual trauma.

“As a result of policy inconsistencies and limited monitoring, DOD has little assurance that certain service members diagnosed with PTSD or TBI receive the required screening and counseling prior to being separated for misconduct and that all service members, including officers, have been trained on how to identify symptoms of mild TBI in the deployed setting,” the GAO wrote.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This absolutely stinks, and our military absolutely deserve far better than this. I would like to hope that President Trump will address this, and get this issue resolved.

Chaffetz Demands FBI Hand Over All Comey's Notes, Memos, & Recordings Related To Trump

Update: Jason Chaffetz office just released the letter sent to the FBI's Andrew McCabe demanding all Comey-Trump related memos...

Today, the New York Times reported former Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey memorialized the content of phone calls and meetings with the President in a series of internal memoranda. At least one such memorandum reportedly describes a conversation in which the President referenced the FBI investigation of former National Security Advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn and said to Comey, "I hope you can let this go."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, it's official; the Deep State of the Unhinged, Surveilled States of America, has decided to take Trump down, and by any means necessary.

IF, in fact it happened, and I am not passing judgement at this point, this is an attempt at obstruction of justice, which is an impeachable offence.

IF it did not happen, and Trump has ways and means of proving it did not, it is Comey's "revenge porn" of the most sickening nature possible, courtesy of American partisan politics.

Cost of congestion for trucking in 2015: 1 billion hours, $63 billion

Traffic congestion on U.S. highways cost the trucking industry $63.4 billion in 2015 due to lost productivity, according to new research by the American Transportation Research Institute released Tuesday. The congestion costs for 2015 grew $13.9 billion from the congestion costs of 2014. ATRI used truck GPS data, along with data from the Federal Highway Administration, to determine that the trucking industry experienced more than 996 million hours of delays in 2015, which is equivalent to 362,243 truck drivers sitting idle for an entire working year. The average cost of congestion for the year was more than $22,000 for a truck that drove 100,000 miles or more.

Now, the Metropolitan Police has formally charged Rabbani for obstructing an examination under a controversial piece of terrorism legislation. Experts say this may be the first arrest made for refusing to disclose a password under that specific section, and that the legislation grants police officers sweeping powers to search individuals and their devices without the approval of a judge.

Sherman County Oregon believes the 2,000 acre Azure Farms is not doing enough to control Canada Thistle, a noxious weed. In this case, not doing enough means not spraying weeds with herbicides.

To remedy the alleged problem, the county proposes seizing the farm and spraying everything with Roundup and other herbicides. Azure Farms is certified organic. Of course, organic farms cannot by definition use herbicides, so the farm would be forced out of business by the county government.

Adding insult to injury, the county would place a lien on the property forcing it to pay for the herbicides.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sherman county officials have most likely been purchased by Monsanto, and/or other manufacturers of aligned poisons; it was, most probably, an easy "investment" to the benefit of these chemical companies.

RETIRED GREEN BERET WARNS A SUCCESSFUL DERAILMENT OF TRUMP'S EFFORTS IS WELL UNDER WAY; WAR IS INEVITABLE

With the Republicans in control of both the Senate and the House of Representatives, at this point, the bill to repeal Obamacare should have already passed both houses of Congress and been on the President’s desk to sign: this was not done, and the Republican Party is to blame.

If the President is unable to make a change while he has both houses of Congress under Republican control, what will happen after the Midterm election changes the complexion of Congress and makes it Democrat? How will he be reelected, and if so, to what end? He waited too long to fire Comey…a name that will torment us in the news even more than that of Natalie Holloway…and now it is turning around to bite him. What is the solution?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are a number of possible theatres where such a war could start.

But I would like to suggest to President Trump that after 16 consecutive years of war, the American public is both war-weary, and war-skeptical.

I have mentioned many times at this blog, that under President Trump, we will probably see the reinstitution of the draft in this country, for both our young men, and our young women.

But there are some difficult challenges here, and these are, that at this time in its history, the US military doesn't have the weaponry; the money; the manufacturing; or the troop strength to prevail successfully in a conventional war against the most likely opponents, Russia and/or China.

If President Trump does not move to resolve these problems, and quickly, the US military will most likely, lose the next major military conflict because of the issues I have just mentioned.

STEVE MNUCHIN’S OLD COMPANY JUST SETTLED FOR $89 MILLION FOR RIPPING OFF THE GOVERNMENT ON DODGY LOANS

For four years during Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin’s tenure as Chairman of OneWest Bank, its reverse mortgage subsidiary Financial Freedom ripped off the government by receiving unlawful federal insurance payments on reverse mortgages, according to an $89 million Justice Department settlement made public today.

Financial Freedom serviced thousands of government-insured reverse mortgages from 2011 to 2016. According to the settlement, the company repeatedly filed insurance claims with the Federal Housing Administration (FHA), and received interest payments, without following program guidelines. This gave Financial Freedom a critical backstop for reverse mortgages that often harmed borrowers.

“This lender failed to comply with FHA servicing requirements and sought to receive financial gains that it was not legally entitled to,” said Inspector General for the Department of Housing and Urban Development, David Montoya, in a statement accompanying the settlement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How completely comforting it is to begin to comprehend how personally ethically challenged our Secretary of the Treasury is!!

VIDEO: CNN HOST SCREAMS AT NAVY SEAL WHO DARES TO QUESTION CREDIBILITY OF “ANONYMOUS” SOURCES

CNN Anchor Kate Bolduan lost her mind in typical liberal left outrage screaming at US Navy Seal, Carl Higbie, to “be quiet” while clapping her hands in anger over his skepticism of anonymous sources.

Fake news CNN is upset that someone dare question the integrity of journalism in the United States and the plethora of “anonymous” sources that are often used to provide reliable information Trump, Russia, and election hacking and even the inner working of Putin’s brain.

Why would this Navy Seal raise questions regarding a “memo” from the very trustworthy former FBI Director James Comey…all of which is revolving around the fact that President Trump mention to Russia’s Lavrov that ISIS is looking to bring down passenger airlines.

Is CNN upset that Trump is sharing information to thwart ISIS attacks on civilian airlines.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I don't know if these exist anymore, but when I was a kid in high school, there were such things in school as "civics classes", where we learned about the 5 bedrocks of true journalism.

These were: who, what, when, where, and how.

IF alleged "reporting is missing any of those elements, it is not true reporting, period, end of discussion.

It is simply codswallop, crafted to fit the agenda of those in the bowels of power in the Unhinged,Surveilled States of America.

Yo, patch that because scum still wanna exploit WannaCrypt-linked vuln

Vulnerable Windows Server Message Block (SMB) shares central to last week's WannaCrypt outbreak are still widely deployed and frequently hunted, security researchers warn.

Rapid7 found over a million internet-connected devices that expose SMB on port 445. Of those, more than 800,000 run Windows, and – given that these are nodes running on the internet exposing SMB – it is likely that a large percentage of these are vulnerable versions of Windows with SMBv1 still enabled.

"While scanning for devices that expose port 445 has been observed for quite some time, the volume of scans on port 445 has increased since 2017-05-12 [Friday], and a majority of those scans are specifically looking to exploit MS17-010, the SMB vulnerability that the WannaCry[pt] malware looks to exploit," Rapid7 reports.

Jewish life in Iran was 'always better than in Europe'

In Iran it is prohibited by law to have any contact to Israel. Is that difficult for you as Jew?

According to our religious teachings, we must obey the laws of the country we live in. And being a Jew is very different from being a Zionist. There are - and have always been - Jews all around the world who are very critical of the behavior of Israel's government and army. Being a Jew means we must obey Torah and Talmud. Invading other countries and killing innocent people are not Moses' teachings. We cannot accept Israel's behavior as Jewish; it is a political and not a religious movement. I personally think that, as the victims of the greatest genocide in the world, Jews should have more empathy with the Palestinian people.
