Are We on the Path to War? – Middle East Heats Up While Viewers Watch the Impeachment

Discussions are underway with new NATO ally Bulgaria to create a Black Sea Coordination Center in Varna. The United States is considering a ten-year roadmap for defense cooperation with Bulgaria and is eager to provide Sofia broader access to its high-end military technologies. The advanced technologies would include surveillance capabilities specifically targeting Russia.
There is also a fundamental second level of stupidity in basing such an effort in Bulgaria as the Turks, also frequently at odds with Washington, control the door to the Black Sea through the Bosporus and Dardanelles. If relations really do go sour and if demands to kick Turkey out of NATO ever do bear fruit, Ankara can make it very difficult for NATO warships transiting into the Black Sea.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In fact, one has to wonder if these impeachment hearings have contained some industrial-strength, Deep State misdirection, while elements within it are working with their Israeli counterparts to insure that US citizens "have a reason" for signing on to a war against an alleged "enemy" which has neither declared war on this country, nor attacked it.

Folks, unfortunately, this is not a question of "if"; it is a question of "when."

But I would like to politely remind those in the bowels of power in DC, what a Russian Diplomat assured some Iranian diplomats this last summer: Iran ‘Won’t Be Alone’ If U.S. Attacks, Russian Official Says

Frankly, I think we can take this person at his word; Russian officials do not even FART without Putin's permission.

The New ArabProtests hit West Bank after cancer-stricken Palestinian dies in Israeli detention ‘due to medical negligence’

The head of the Palestinian Commission of Detainees' Affairs, Qadri Abu Bakr, confirmed to The New Arab’s Arabic-language service that Abu Diyak died at dawn on Tuesday, in the hospital of Israel’s Ramla prison.

Abu Diyak had been diagnosed with intestinal cancer in 2015. His condition subsequently deteriorated, which Palestinian media say is in part due to medical mistakes at the hospital in southern Israel where he had surgery to remove part of his large intestine.

"The death of Abu Diyak comes after months of warning [the Israeli authorities] about the seriousness of his condition, that he could die at any moment because of the medical negligence he was subjected to," said Abu Bakr.

Hanan Ashrawi, a senior member of the Palestinian Liberation Organisation, issued a searing condemnation of Abu Diyak's death, calling on Israel to take responsibility for its actions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to wonder if the original charges under which this man was convicted, were actually based on evidence, or merely trumped-up, because it justified him spending his life in an Israeli prison, simply because he was a Palestinian protester.

Hanan Ashrawi should be the first person on the planet, to realize that Israel will never take responsibility when a Palestinian dies of medical mistakes in an Israeli jail; one has to wonder of the described "medical mistakes" the guy suffered in the hospital in southern Israel, were deliberately staged, to make his cancer advance more quickly, and cause even more physical pain.

Mengele...would have been so proud of this outcome!!

Anger over India's diplomat calling for 'Israel model' in Kashmir

An hour-long video featuring Sandeep Chakravorty, India's consul general in New York, has gone viral on social media, in which he is addressing a group of Kashmiri Hindus - known as Pandits - at a private event in the US city last week.

"I believe the security situation will improve, it will allow the refugees to go back, and in your lifetime, you will be able to go back … and you will be able to find security, because we already have a model in the world," said Chakravorty, referring to the exodus of tens of thousands of Kashmiri Hindus in 1989 after an armed rebellion against the Indian rule started in the Himalayan region.

"I don't know why we don't follow it. It has happened in the Middle East. If the Israeli people can do it, we can also do it," he said, adding that the current Indian leadership is "determined" to do so.

'Chilling video'

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So let me get this straight; this guy wants to make Kashmiri Muslims second-class citizens, or worse, create a "Final Solution" response to their presence in Kashmir?!?

Forgive me, but I am having a palm to forehead moment, at warp speed, upon reading this!! WHAT THE HELL IS THE INDIAN GOVERNMENT THINKING, TO HAVE SOMEONE ADVOCATING FOR THIS MONSTROUS SUGGESTION IN PUBLIC, WITH THE SURE AND CERTAIN KNOWLEDGE THAT IT WOULD GO VIRAL?!?

This world has had some of its most brilliant thinkers and philosophers came from India; it's a pity that its current governmental regime cannot be described as belonging to either camp here.

Iran Says Eight CIA Assets Arrested, Blames US for Protest Violence

Major protests in Iran about the increase in gas prices may be over, but Iranian officials are saying that they believe a US-orchestrated conspiracy was involved in violence seen during the rallies, which involved attacks on Iranian banks.

Hundreds of banks were attacked, and Iranian authorities say 7,000 protesters were arrested. Iranian intelligence officials say at least eight CIA assets were among those arrested in connection with the violence.

The eight people had been given CIA-funded training, nominally to become “citizen journalists.” Six were arrested at the rallies, while the other two were trying to send information abroad.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF, in fact, these reports prove true, this wouldn't surprise me; everything that the US government has tried to do so far, to regime change Tehran, hasn't worked, so the CIA thought that they would give this old canard another try, and it wound up biting them in an excruciatingly sensitive portion of the human anatomy.

Britain’s Chief Rabbi is helping to stoke anti-Semitism

Jonathan Cook highlights the motives, hypocrisy, deceitfulness and myopia behind UK Chief Rabbi – and Israel flag waver – Ephraim Mirvis’s scurrilous and utterly unsubstantiated claim that Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party are “anti-Semitic” – a claim now parroted by the BBC and other mainstream media.>>

NARRATIVE MANAGERS FACEPLANT IN HILARIOUS OPCW SCANDAL SPIN JOB

Syria has been the target of what may be the most sophisticated propaganda campaign in history, and Bellingcat has been consistently rallying behind even the most transparently ridiculous tools of this campaign. This includes the notorious Bana Alabed psyop which at its height saw CNN staging a fake, scripted interview featuring a seven year-old girl assigning blame to Bashar al-Assad for an alleged sarin gas attack in Khan Shaykhun. Bellingcat’s stellar investigative work (which has been praised in fawning puff pieces by mainstream outlets like The Guardian and The New Yorker) concluded that this obvious propaganda construct was in fact nothing other than a little girl and her mother independently composing viral tweets, giving interviews and authoring books about how the Syrian government must be toppled via western interventionism.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Propaganda is pretty darned easy to spot, if you know what to look for; it is disinformation, beautifully packaged, in order to drive a Government-narrative to which they want their readers agreeing, and fervently in favor of having the government do, such as a massive strike on Syria, even knowing that such a move is apt to rankle Moscow to the point of starting a shooting war in that country.

So I would like to politely remind our readers that just because something is the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid thing the US government could do, is no guarantee that it will not either try to legitimize such a move, or really do it.

THE NEW YORK TIMES' LONG HISTORY OF ENDORSING US-BACKED COUPS

SOURCE: MINT PRESS
BY ALAN MACLEOD
Bolivian President Evo Morales was overthrown in a U.S.-backed military coup d’état earlier this month after Bolivian army generals appeared on television demanding his resignation. As Morales fled to Mexico, the army appointed right-wing Senator Jeanine Añez as his successor. Añez, a Christian conservative who has described Bolivia’s indigenous majority as “satanic”, arrived at the presidential palace holding an oversized Bible, declaring that Christianity was re-entering the government. She immediately announced she would “take all measures necessary” to “pacify” the indigenous resistance to her takeover.
This included pre-exonerating the country’s notorious security services of all future crimes in their “re-establishment of order,” leading to massacres of dozens of mostly indigenous people.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The NY Slimes, is no longer an independent media voice; it has become the eco-chamber of the US government, and vomits up the codswallop the US government wants it to vomit.

For intelligent, independent media, look at the blogs, and look at their track record.

We have a companion piece for this, also from blacklistednews.com,
with the following title: WITH THE RIGHT-WING COUP IN BOLIVIA NEARLY COMPLETE, THE JUNTA IS HUNTING DOWN THE LAST REMAINING DISSIDENTS

And please remember that so far, everything Julian Assange has presented, has never been proven wrong; this is why the US government hates him with such a passion, and hopes to insure that the British government has him "eliminated with extreme prejudice" at Belmarsh, before he ever stands trial here for his alleged "crimes in the US."

ISRAELI GOVERNMENT TO EXPAND GLOBAL ARMS EXPORTS IN 2020

SOURCE: MIDDLE EAST MONITOR
The Israeli government is aiming to increase the volume of Israel’s defence exports, reported Globes, which has revealed the main points of the plan for the first time.

The project, being overseen by the Defence Ministry’s International Defence Cooperation Directorate (SIBAT) led by Brigadier General (Res.) Yair Kulas, will begin to be rolled out in early 2020.

According to Globes, the plan is based on “focused seminars for senior commanders in foreign armies”, Israeli military “assistance for promoting sales of Israeli weapons”, and “subsidising small and medium-sized defence companies seeking to sell arms around the world”.

Speaking this week, Kulas said that SIBAT favours a major expansion of agreements between countries, resulting in significant deals for the large defence companies, especially Elbit Systems, Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) and Rafael Advanced Defence Systems.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Color me unsurprised at this development; but one has to wonder how Israeli weaponry really stands up to that of China or Russia, at this point?!?

 THOUSANDS OF MIGRANT CHILDREN WERE SEXUALLY ABUSED IN U.S. CUSTODY, HHS DOCS SAY

SOURCE: CBS NEWS
Thousands of migrant children allegedly suffered sexual abuse while in U.S. government custody over the past four years, according to Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) documents released Tuesday by Florida Democratic Rep. Ted Deutch.

According to the documents, over a thousand allegations of sexual abuse against unaccompanied minors in HHS custody were reported to federal authorities each fiscal year since 2015. In total, between October 2014 and July 2018, 4,556 sexual abuse complaints were reported to the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) — an agency within HHS in charge of caring for unaccompanied migrant minors.

An additional 1,303 complaints were received by the Justice Department between fiscal years 2015 and 2018, but it’s unclear whether these complaints overlap with those reported to ORR.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This should never happen to ANY child, period, end of discussion; but why the hell was there utterly zero oversight when it came to undocumented, unaccompanied minors here in the US?!?

Something is profoundly wrong, when it comes to an institutional culture which would allow such savagery against children.

'This Is Not Murder, This Is Mitzvah': Amazon's 'Hunters' Features SJWs Killing Conservatives

Jason Blum's "The Hunt" was canceled earlier this year over fears it could incite violence or a civil war but now Jordan Peele is coming out with a new series titled "Hunters" with nearly the exact same theme.

The trailer for Amazon Prime's "Hunters" shows what appear to be white Americans, several of whom are donning red hats, battling with and appearing to be killed by "a diverse band of Nazi Hunters."

NYT Endorses Hooded Gay Black Vigilante Murdering Racist Whites: "If Our History of Racial Violence and Trauma Had Produced an Avenger ... It Is Justified."

It is worth noting that the last paragraph is largely in the present tense. It’s less a reference to the KKK and the lynchings rampant in the 1930s New York City inside Bouie’s brain, it is a reference to how a black vigilante “is justified” right now.

BBC under increasing criticism for biased reporting

It’s almost as British as fish and chips and a pint, but what used to be embraced by the masses as a reliable source of information, the BBC, is now under increasing scrutiny for its overt political bias. With the growing popularity of social and alternative media, Brits are no longer taking as gospel what is pumped out by, this publicly funded service which is increasingly coming under fire for being nothing more than a propaganda machine for the sitting government. The hashtag #BBCbias has been trending for some time now on Twitter, and with more and more commentators questioning the integrity of this public service, it’s clear that the organisation needs to take a long hard look at itself.

Progressive journalist: MSNBC doesn't try to hide 'contempt' towards Gabbard

Progressive journalist Michael Tracey claimed Tuesday that MSNBC is has dropped all pretenses for their “contempt” towards Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii).

The political news contributor said the left-leaning network has treated her fellow 2020 Democratic candidates, including businessman Andrew Yang and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) unfairly, but he argued that with Gabbard it, “crosses a certain threshold.”

“Fundamentally they’re beholden to whatever the market incentives are and right now it’s within their market interests to depict Tulsi as an infiltrator, as a Trojan horse in the Democratic Party and not deal on the substance with what she’s saying which is why over and over again they tar her as a Russian plant essentially,” Tracey told Hill.TV.

“There’s nobody who can really offer any kind countervailing view because it’s just not economically advantageous for them at this point,” he added.

Two Launches from Gaza Strip Identified as Sirens Go Off in Sderot, IDF Report

Sirens went off in Gaza Strip and Sderot, Israeli Defence Forces reported on their twitter page on Tuesday.

Following the sirens, two launches from Gaza Strip at Israeli territory were identified, according to the IDF. The military added the Iron Dome air defence system managed to intercept one projectile.

"2 rockets were just fired from #Gaza at Israeli civilians. 1 rocket was intercepted by the Iron Dome Aerial Defense System," the IDF wrote on its Twitter page.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

However this happened, you can nearly bet on one hell of a response to this bombing, most possibly close to US holiday, Thanksgiving Day, when many Americans are in a turkey/ tryptophan-induced coma, and watching sports.

First Look At Epstein, Ghislaine Maxwell And Very Young Girls On 'Pedo Island'

A former masseuse for Jeffrey Epstein who says he raped her on his private island, has provided photos of his secretive Caribbean compound to The Sun.

Chaunte Davies says she was raped by Epstein over the course of several years before finally parting ways with him in 2005. She told the Sun that the wealthy pedophile was arrested just five days after she gave the FBI and New Mexico Assistant Attorney General evidence against him.

Now 40, Chaunte says the ex-Wall Street banker performed a sex act on himself during their first massage session - and that she was "manipulated" into staying in their circle by Epstein's alleged madam, Ghislaine Maxwell. "Within weeks she was jetting round the world on his private jet and on to his island of Little Saint James," according to the report.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Maxwell is not going to be talking to ANYONE, until her attorney gets her an iron-clad immunity deal, which I doubt is going to happen.

There are literally heads of both nations and companies who would might fall, if certain information about their carryings-on at Chez Epstein, and other places, becomes public knowledge.

I do not know how she is getting protection right now, but if she doesn't have it, she is going to need it like crazy, as long as she is still breathing.

CIO Of $175Bn Fund Warns "A Liquidity Crisis Is All But Inevitable"

Authored by Christoph Gisiger via TheMarket.ch,

Tad Rivelle, Chief Investment Officer of the Californian bond house TCW, doubts that the Central Banks can prevent the impending economic downturn. He spots increasing signs of stress in the credit sector and recommends holding safe assets to be prepared for turmoil in the financial markets.

Mr. Rivelle, who rarely gives interviews, views the prospects on the financial markets with skepticism. In his opinion, it’s clear that the business cycle is in its final stages. He warns that the power of unconventional monetary policy is largely exhausted and nervousness in the credit sector is growing.

Against this background, he advises a defensive calibration of the portfolio and a careful approach when it comes to security selection – especially in the investment grade segment where many companies are more leveraged than their rating indicates.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, I know I sound like a chipped CD on this, but please; don't have any more money in your bank account to pay your bills; look at getting some "melt" silver (silver which is not sold for numismatic value); see if you can get some gold, also, as a stabilizer for your investing.

We are headed toward some very ugly and uncertain times, and please don't get do not find yourself short.

SATIRE: CNN To Launch Real News Spinoff Site

Babylon Bee, June 9, 2017

ATLANTA, GA—After years of publishing distorted headlines, slanted news articles, and heavily biased news coverage, media giant CNN announced Friday that it has decided to launch a spinoff site that focuses on real news comprised of objective facts.

Dubbed “CNN: Real,” the site is designed to bring the news media empire into the arena of publishing real news, a step away from its roots as a channel that covers entirely fabricated stories and shamelessly spins all news into liberal talking points.

Open Letter to UK Home Secretary Priti Pateland Shadow Home Secretary Diane Abbott

We write this open letter, as medical doctors, to express our serious concerns about the physical and mental health of Julian Assange. Our professional concerns follow publication recently of the harrowing eyewitness accounts of Craig Murray and John Pilger of the case management hearing on Monday 21 October 2019 at Westminster Magistrates Court. The hearing related to the upcoming February 2020 hearing of the request by the US government for Mr Assange’s extradition to the US in relation to his work as a publisher of information, including information about alleged crimes of the US government.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Assange may well be "assassinated" by a number of methods, converging to attempt to make the murder seem to have been suicide, as we found with Epstein's "curious case".

He is being gradually killed, through elements of medical neglect; psychological torture; potential misdiagnosis, and medications, (or weaponized illnesses) to create that outcome of a painful, horrific death; if he makes it out of Balmarch alive, it will be an amazing feat, but I would not bet on it.

BBC blasted by John Challis for CENSORING Only Fools and Horses ‘you can’t say anything!’

TV legend John Challis criticised plans to censor classic British sitcoms like Only Fools and Horses for being “offensive” to modern audiences. British streaming service Britbox – a subscription service led by the BBC, ITV and Channel 4 – was launched earlier this month. However, its decision to “censor” and attach sensitivity warnings to shows that could offend modern sensibilities have drawn widespread criticism.

The bespoke warnings will label specific episodes – with one Only Fools and Horses episode and almost every episode of Fawlty Towers impacted.

Only Fools and Horses star John Challis spoke out against the move during an appearance on the Jeremy Vine show this morning.

Challis questioned why it was right that a show like Only Fools and Horses, that was “still enjoyed by hundreds every day”, could be taken down because it offends “two or three people”.

He recommended that people who are offended by these programmes “simply choose to not watch them”.

Facebook Bans All Content On Vaccine Awareness, Including Facts About Vaccine Ingredients

Kurdish Officials: US Troops at Syrian Oilfields Won’t Stop Turkish Invasion

A Kurdish senior foreign affairs official, Aldar Xelil, reported that the US has assured Kurdish forces that US troops will remain in the oilfield area between Derik and Terbespiya, in eastern Syria.

This assurance doesn’t seem to be helping the Kurds feel a lot better, however. with Xelil pointing out that this really isn’t going to do anything to prevent the Turkish offensives into northeastern Syria.

The US announced a “pullout” from Syria but ended up just redeploying around the oil, with President Trump saying the oil is the priority. Xelil says the US has no intention of staying anywhere west of Qamilshli, and for the Kurds, that’s a problem.

The US is still in Syria, but there’s about 100 km gap between Syrian-held Syria and US-held oilfield where Turkey and its rebels are not only free to invade Kurdish-held territory, but to push potentially quite deep into Kurdish territory.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The big question for the Kurds is, when is the US government going to stop lying to them about the possibility of an Independent Kurdistan, and tell them the truth; they have been used, had, and because they are no longer useful, have been thrown under the proverbial bus?

And NOW we have Vice-President Pence, posturing, and virtue-signaling to the Kurdish governments and people, that the us "WILL BE SUPPORTING THE KURDS, after the ISIS war is finished. "Pence Reassures Iraqi Kurds in Surprised-Announced Visit.

But what, precisely, is this "support" pledged by Pence?!?

Is it that " independent homeland" for which the Kurdish people, have wanted so long, and if so, what country would allow a "bite out of their territory" taken, to accomodate a Kurdish homeland?!?

The short answer, may well be never.

And there is another problem with Pence's statements to Kurdish leaders in Iraq even though he has pledged "support" when the Isis war "is over", we are looking at endless wars, both existing, in supporting US hegemony in the Middle East.

So Pence could obviously make that hyper-ambiguous statement with a straight face,, because he knows, incontrovertibly, that war, to attempt to keep the Middle East destabilized, is the American game-plan, and will continue for decades.

Unfortunately the Kurds need to find a truly reliable sponsor in the Middle East, or beyond, who can actually assist them in reaching their goal of nationhood, and that country is certainly not the United States.

   23 DEAD AS VIOLENT UNREST IN CHILE ENTERS FIFTH WEEK

Looting and demonstrations took place in cities across the South American nation, and an agreement on a political roadmap that will see Chile draft a new constitution has halted neither the anger, nor the bloodshed. Furious Chileans have since October 18 been protesting social and economic inequality, and against an entrenched political elite that comes from a small number of the wealthiest families in the country, among other issues.

The crisis is the worst in three decades of Chilean democracy and has led to around 2,000 injuries, including some 280 people who suffered eye damage from shotgun pellets.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This will all come down, to where the police and military sympathies lie; if they lie with the rulers, we can expect a great deal more bloodshed, before the government claims the people "pacified"; if not, it may well be a new, and democratic day, for Chile.

NYTIMES PANS "CULT LEADER" GABBARD'S WHITE PANT SUIT AFTER PRAISING HILLARY FOR SAME OUTFIT

Style writer Vanessa Friedman had drooled over Hillary’s clothing back in 2016, calling her white pantsuit “presidential.”

However, when Gabbard, a fierce critic of Clinton, wore virtually the exact same outfit, Friedman said it made her look like a “cult leader” full of “combative righteousness” and that the white fabric has “connotations of the fringe, rather than the center” and even undermines “community building.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely amazing, but perfectly predictable!!!

DNC Chair Tom Perez, we never talk anymore, sir.

Not that we ever did, really, but I would imagine that you have someone on your team occasionally taking a look at the posts which appear here.

But please believe me; with the Biden Ukraine Debacle coming at the DNC like a tsunami on steroids, the only really viable candidates you have, when Warren's budget numbers self-destruct, which is about to happen, will be Buttegeig, and Gabbard.

And Hillary?!? In the immortal words of Tony Soprano, "fuhgettaboutit"!

She's Kryptonite, with more baggage than has Kim Kardashian on a photoshoot, and may well have "assassins on speed dial" (Yes, I DO know this is one of Sherlock Holmes' lines in the Dramady, "Elementary"; but you have to wonder that the Gruesome Twosome, Bill and Hill, are the only "power couple" in DC to have had their very own "dead bodies list").

As for Gabbard; she is a straight thinking, well-spoken Samoan American Vet who has actually seen combat, and fully well understands the costs of war.

Buttegeig has been doing very well in recent polls, and sounds, to most people, like a centerist.

Tom, I would consider most of the reasonably sane people I know as "Centerists", neither rabid conservatives, or rabid socialists; if your nomination choice misses that critical mass of American voters, you will lose to Trump (or Pence, or whoever the RNC puts into position, if Trump is impeached) in a way that will cause the Democratic party in this country to self-destruct, and worse, from absolutely self-inflicted wounds.

As you well know, candidates are created; not necessarily born. So I would suggest that you, and the rest of the DNC get busy, creating a team that Americans can really support and get behind, even if the US military/industrial complex is a little "grumpy" with the choice; but as you well understand,they always get their "cut of the action" anyway,no matter who is sitting in that Oval Office.

UNPRECEDENTED 'ARCHITECTURE OF SURVEILLANCE' CREATED BY FACEBOOK AND GOOGLE POSES GRAVE HUMAN RIGHTS THREAT: REPORT

SOURCE: COMMON DREAMS

"Their insidious control of our digital lives undermines the very essence of privacy and is one of the defining human rights challenges of our era."

A new report from Amnesty International accuses Facebook and Google of having a "surveillance-based business model" that threatens users' right to privacy and other human rights.

The tech giants, said Kumi Naidoo, secretary general of Amnesty International, have amassed "unparalleled power over the digital world by harvesting and monetizing the personal data of billions of people. Their insidious control of our digital lives undermines the very essence of privacy and is one of the defining human rights challenges of our era."

Facebook and Google, according to the report, deserve to be singled out of the so-called Big 5 for their outsize influence on internet users.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When you post anything, on any area of social media, please make certain that it is something you wouldn't mind shouting from the rooftops; digital privacy and anonymity have died, unless you want to go to the sites as seen on the left hand side of the screen, very near where this commentary exists.

And one has to wonder just how long before they, too, get compromised.

PRINCETON STUDY: THE U.S. IS NOT ‘LOSING’ ITS DEMOCRACY, IT’S ALREADY LONG GONE

SOURCE: COLLECTIVE-EVOLUTION
The notion that citizens of the United States don’t actually live in a democracy has been picking up steam for decades, with scars from economic, social and political decay inflicting themselves ever more deeply into our psyches as the years move on.

You would think that, with the rise of science and technology, we would have been able to build a far more prosperous nation. Instead, we have seen a vast reduction in our standard of living, and are being forced to work longer and harder in increasingly menial and unfulfilling jobs across the board. We are ever more being subjected to the control-hungry vicissitudes of mega-corporations that are swallowing up American entrepreneurship and prosperous self-employment.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Elections, in this country, give our citizens the illusion of choice in Presidential candidates, where we have utterly none; at the end of the day, candidates are vetted to make certain they are war-centric and surveillance-centric (not of themselves, of course, but ordinary people); have no difficulties dealing with certain dictatorial governments which buy a huge load of weapons from the US; and like the current socio-economic system, including all of the wealthy's tax breaks, frozen right where they are in time in this country, with little chance of real advancement, or better wealth equity.

AG BARR ANNOUNCES PROJECT GUARDIAN TO PREVENT UNAPPROVED GUN PURCHASES

U.S. Attorney General William Barr was in Memphis last Wednesday to announce the launch of a new federal gun control program, Project Guardian. The AG promises to enforce federal gun regulations “with a vengeance.”

As President Trump is facing mostly manufactured charges of committing impeachable offenses, his attorney general is committing actual offenses against the Constitution, namely infringing on the right of the people to keep and bear arms, as protected by the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

“I have long believed that the first duty of government is to protect the safety of our citizens,” Barr told the press gathered to cover the kick-off of the gun buying crackdown.

Actually, Mr. Barr, the federal government was NOT given the power by the states to protect the citizens of those states.

The scope of federal authority was very succinctly explained by James Madison in Federalist 45:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is only one small problem with this project; it is completely extra-constitutional, and an attempt to destroy Second Amendment rights, granted to American citizens in the Bill of Rights.

Folks, let's get real here,shall we?!? The reason for the Federal government to want to grab guns, is that there is some very sophisticated software programs, are being developed by Silicon Valley, which are very much mirrors to China's extant Social Credit System.

Oh Oh; Silicon Valley is Building a Chinese-Style Social Credit System The article goes on to state;

"IT CAN HAPPEN HERE
Many Westerners are disturbed by what they read about China’s social credit system. But such systems, it turns out, are not unique to China. A parallel system is developing in the United States, in part as the result of Silicon Valley and technology-industry user policies, and in part by surveillance of social media activity by private companies."

By the time such a system comes into place and stomps down hard in this country, the Unhinged, Surveilled State of Amerika will really have supplanted the Constitutional Republic, which, although it lived at one time, no longer exists.

So what will the monied do, to prevent working people from rebelling against such a Draconian system?!? Why, make sure that guns have been taken away from everyone; that is the goal, and Barr's program is engineered to facilitate just that.

Teen in California high school shooting rampage used 'ghost gun' made from parts

A 16-year-old boy who opened fire at his Southern California high school, killing two classmates and wounding three others before shooting himself in the head, used a “ghost gun” built from parts, the local sheriff said on Thursday.

Nathaniel Tennosuke Berhow pulled the .45-caliber semi-automatic pistol from his backpack on Nov. 14, his birthday, and shot students at Saugus High School in the Los Angeles suburb of Santa Clarita seemingly at random before turning the gun on himself. He died of his wounds the next day.

“When we did a search of the house, we encountered what’s called a kit gun. The weapon used in the homicide was also a kit gun,” Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva told local KABC-TV in an interview.

“It was assembled from parts, had no serial number. So it becomes what’s known as a ‘ghost gun,’” Villanueva said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is an interesting read out of Reuters on this shooting, California School Shooter Dies, with motive a mystery and it mentions the following:

"The stereotype of the loser sociopath is often inaccurate, according to the psychologist who co-wrote federal guidelines for assessing school shooting threats.

Marissa Randazzo, who has interviewed five shooters, said most of those she studied were academically successful and weren’t social outcasts.

What pushes most shooters is some kind of loss or disappointment, often recent, followed by the inability to cope with a feeling of being overwhelmed, said Randazzo, a former chief research psychologist at the U.S. Secret Service who is now CEO of a threat-assessments firm."

“These are acts of suicide as much as homicide,” she said."

The kid's dad died in 2017; I have to wonder if the family had him involved with "talking therapy only", or "chemical therapy", where a class of drugs called SSRIs, Selective Serotonin Uptake Reinhibitors, were prescribed by the boy's doctor.

These drugs are known to have some horrific side-effects, such as wanting to commit suicide or homicide, and the documentation on this can be found at:

www.ssristories.org

IF you have a kid in your family you love very much who has just gone through a really horrific trauma (like losing your dad when you are 17), please make sure that they get some competent, compassionate grief counseling, even if they are adamant that they don't need it. And make DAMNED sure that this teenager is not being prescribed one of these medications.

I know a little something about that kind of trauma; my dad died when I was 18, of a cerebrovascular accident (where heart and brain fail at the same time).

Luckily and fortunately, I was blessed to have my family rally around me, to be sure that I got the help and support I needed.

Media Manipulation: Story About Immigrant 'Kids In Cages' Scrubbed After UN Said It Happened On Obama's Watch

The media is now self-censoring when the numbers don’t align with their narrative. The thought manipulation of the public is on full display. Rather than issue a correction, several news agencies have instead opted to delete a story stating that 100,000 migrant children were detained in US border facilities. This decision to delete comes after the United Nations clarified that the number is years old, predating the age of Trump, according to RT.

Fox News: Epstein Prison Guards' Indictments 'Should End All The Conspiracy Theories,' Fmr NYC Police Commish Says

The arrest of Jeffrey Epstein's prison guards "proves his death was a suicide" and "should end all the conspiracy theories surrounding" his death, at least according to this report from Fox News citing Former New York City police commissioner Bernard Kerik.

EPSTEIN’S JAIL GUARDS TO FACE CRIMINAL CHARGES

The correctional officers haven’t yet been named. It’s very possible that New York prosecutors will seek to use them as patsies to deflect skepticism from the official narrative surrounding Epstein’s death.

The guards have apparently been offered a plea deal that they declined, setting the stage for legal proceedings that could shine light on Epstein’s death.

The authorities’ official story maintains the billionaire pedophile committed suicide in his own jail cell, hanging himself with bed sheets when jail guards weren’t looking. Epstein’s close personal connections to neoliberal political elites such as Bill Clinton and the UK’s Prince Andrew have lead to an abundance of alternative explanations, with a plurality of Americans doubting the jail’s version of events.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The cold, hard truth of the business is that, given the circumstances, Epstein was a "live liability" for many of the monied, and celebrity-centric; therefore, one way or the other, he had to be either exterminated with extreme prejudice; or, if those upon whom he had compromising information, understood that he had a functioning "dead man's switch" in place, whisked out of the country to a place where no one could find him.

Ever since the assassination of President Kennedy, this country has been stumbling into becoming another banana republic, where political assassinations, both inside the country, and outside of it, have become routine.

I weep for the country I thought I knew, as a kid.

Wall Street Journal investigation confirms Google operates censorship blacklist

An investigation by the Wall Street Journal has confirmed many of the central allegations made by the World Socialist Web Site in 2017 regarding Google’s censorship of the internet.

In an extensive article published Friday, the Journal concludes that, contrary to Google’s repeated assertions, the company maintains blacklists of individual websites and intervenes directly to manipulate individual search results.

On July 27, 2017, the World Socialist Web Site reported that changes to Google’s search algorithm, internally dubbed “Project Owl,” had drastically reduced search traffic to left-wing, antiwar and progressive websites.

The WSWS based its assertions on Google’s public declarations that it was seeking to “surface more authoritative content” and demote “alternative viewpoint[s],” as well as detailed data from the WSWS’s analytics systems and data provided by other websites and publicly available web and search traffic estimators.

US CALLS ON HAFTAR TO END TRIPOLI PUSH, WARNS AGAINST RUSSIA ROLE

The United States has called on Libyan renegade General Khalifa Haftar to stop a months-long offensive on Tripoli and said it would back the country’s internationally recognised government against "Russia’s attempts to exploit the conflict".

The statement was the most explicit call by Washington against the self-styled Libyan National Army of Haftar, who was earlier praised by President Donald Trump.

"The United States calls on the 'Libyan National Army’ to end its offensive on Tripoli," the US State Department said in a joint statement released on Thursday after talks with a delegation from Libya’s Tripoli-based Government of National Accord in Washington.

Libya has been split between rival camps based in Tripoli and the east since 2014, a result of the divisions that surfaced following the NATO-backed overthrow of long-time ruler Muammar Gaddafi three years earlier.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

More Russia bashing in Libya, courtesy of the New York Times; and notice, the last paragraph, in which it is stated, that "...the Russian mercenaries were believed to be controlled by an ally of President Vladimir Putin, an allegation denied by Moscow.

PROOF BE DAMNED!! We only want a SUGGESTION that Russia is supporting Haftar, and off the US government is ready to..... go and do what, precisely?!?

Are we going to offer more troops to NATO, with which to fight Haftar's troops, and the so-called Russian mercs, allegedly under Moscow's control?!?

A Decap Strike on Moscow?!?

This is the kind of foreign policy decision one can always expect from the US government, when International Policy becomes driven by dartboard, rather than driven by the best logic and intel possible; and the folks fabricating this policy toward Libya and Haftar, are not even looking at the same bloody dartboard, complicating things even further!!!

Jewish Privilege

In keeping with the so-called “Christchurch Call to Action” which flowed from a meeting of government officials and internet giants on May 15, 2019 in Paris, Facebook issued an internal document entitled “Hate Agent Policy Review,” which, according to Breitbart, which received a copy from a source inside Facebook, “outlines a series of ‘signals’ that Facebook uses to determine if someone ought to be categorized as a ‘hate agent’ and banned from the platform.”[1]

The guidelines were simultaneously draconian and incoherent. You can be designated as a “hate agent” if “you praise the wrong individual, interview them, or appear at events alongside them.”

US Congress cracks down on ABC News for ‘Epstein coverup,’ demands to know WHO killed the story and WHY

In the wake of an explosive revelation that ABC News allegedly knew the extent of Jeffrey Epstein’s crimes years ago but chose not to report them, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has demanded answers from the network’s execs.

In his letter to ABC News president James Goldston, McCarthy demanded the names of those involved in the decision not to run the story, as well as their motives. In a video clip leaked earlier this month, ABC News anchor Amy Robach is caught on a “hot mic” speaking to colleagues about the alleged cover-up.

US CONGRESS CRACKS DOWN ON ABC NEWS FOR ‘EPSTEIN COVERUP’, DEMANDS TO KNOW WHO KILLED THE STORY AND WHY

SOURCE: RT
In the wake of explosive revelation that ABC News allegedly knew the extent of Jeffrey Epstein’s crimes years ago but chose not to report them, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has demanded answers from the network’s execs.
In his letter to ABC News president James Goldston, McCarthy demanded the names of those involved in the decision not to run the story, as well as their motives. In a video clip leaked earlier this month, ABC News anchor Amy Robach is caught on a “hot mic” speaking to colleagues about the alleged cover-up.

“I’ve had this interview with Virginia Roberts...we would not put it on the air,” Robach says about the woman who now three years later publicly accuses Epstein of using her as a sex slave, and pimping her out to his powerful friends, including Britain’s Prince Andrew.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Media power always cracks down on any exposure on corruption, because, most generally, very powerful people include some of the most corrupt in their own industries, and frequently government.

And I would strongly caution Minority Leader McCarthy that, unless your life has been virtuously squeaky clean, these people, and will, can come back to haunt you.

Bolivia’s coup: Morales toppled not due to his failures, but due to his success

Questions remain about the circumstances that led to Morales’ ouster, and whether foreign governments played a role in it. But recent history provides reason to suspect that Bolivia’s rich natural resources are part of the answer.
In a near empty room, a Bolivian military official placed the presidential sash over Jeanine Anez Chavez, a senator from the Beni region who didn’t run the country’s recent election. The ardently Christian politician carried a Bible with her into the ceremony, which consolidated the coup d’etat in the Andean country.
