MEET PRESIDENT SWAMP

This is a compilation of information on Donald Trump’s ties to Rothschild.
Trump has been not only been partners in crime with associates of the Rothschild family, he’s even been directly involved with the Rothschilds.

Casinos, Rothschild and Wilbur Ross
Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, before she married Jared Kushner, had an affair with Nat Rothschild, heir to the Rothschild trillions.

In 1987 Donald Trump purchased his first casino interests when he acquired 93% of the shares in Resorts International.

On 30 October 1978, it was reported that the principle investors of Resorts International were Meyer Lansky, Tibor Rosenbaum, William Mellon Hitchcock, David Rockefeller, and Baron Edmond de Rothschild: https://philosophyofmetrics.com/how-…trump-freepom/

When the casino went bankrupt, it was only with the assistance of Wilbur L. Ross Jr., senior managing director of Rothschild Inc., that Trump could “keep” the casinos. These days Wilbur Ross is Trump’s Secretary of Commerce.

How the ‘Interpreter’ Scam Brought 75,000 Iraqis and Afghans to America

One fact about all empires. The Homeland becomes over run by foreigners. Happens to every empire and helps to destroy it.

The latest battle over Special Immigrant Visas pitted Stephen Miller, President Trump’s senior advisor, against the Pentagon. The military brass was lobbying for 6,000 special immigrant visas for Iraqis who worked for American forces in the country. These visas were once again billed as helping “interpreters”.

That’s a lot of interpreters considering that there were only 5,200 American troops in Iraq.

How could there be more Iraqi interpreters for American troops than there are troops?

Jeffrey Epstein is the latest in a long list of Clinton family associates and acquaintances who died mysteriously or committed suicide before their public testimony.
In 2016 CBS Las Vegas posted a list of Bill and Hillary Clinton associates alleged to have died under mysterious circumstances.
Here is that list:
1- James McDougal – Clintons convicted Whitewater partner died of an apparent heart attack, while in solitary confinement. He was a key witness in Ken Starr’s investigation.
2 – Mary Mahoney – A former White House intern was murdered July 1997 at a Starbucks Coffee Shop in Georgetown .. The murder …happened just after she was to go public with her story of sexual harassment in the White House.

High-Income Taxpayers Now Confronted At Home By IRS Agents

The IRS announced Wednesday that it would increase at-home visitations to high-income taxpayers who haven't filed tax returns on time.

Remember when the IRS under the Obama administration targeted conservative groups? Now it appears this anti-wealth attitude extends to anyone earning over $100,000 that hasn't filed a return since 2018 or prior years.

During an at-home visit, IRS agents will inform the non-compliant taxpayer how to file returns and show them a pathway of regaining compliant status.

Uncle Sam wants his goddamn money!

"The IRS is committed to fairness in the tax system, and we want to remind people across all income categories that they need to file their taxes," said Paul Mamo, Director of Collection Operations, Small Business/Self Employed Division. "These visits focusing on high-income taxpayers will be taking place across the country."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is painfully obvious, that Mamo has has his conscience surgically removed, just as have many of his predecessors, before accepting this job.

These "visits" are criminal shake-downs, in a world where most Americans have never heard of the following, successful lawsuit against the US government:

"Sullivan vs/ the United States of America."

Coronavirus Could Be on the Verge of Worldwide Breakout

Paul Craig Roberts

It is difficult to get reliable information about coronavirus. The information difficulty is further complicated by interest groups using the outbreak for their own agendas. For example, many both inside and outside China are using the spread of the virus to criticize the Chinese government. Others, both inside and outside China, claim the virus is a bioweapon unleashed on China by the US. Still others say the global elite has decided to implement a program to reduce the world population and that Bill Gates, one of the global elite, said some months ago that a global pandemic would break out at this time. Some Internet sites attract traffic by posting reports of massive numbers of Chinese deaths and crematoriums running 24/7. The official Chinese story has been that the virus originated in a market that sold wild animal meat. The fact remains that Wuhan, apparently a city larger than any in the US, has been locked down for a month.

(Russian?) Warplanes Drop Bombs Next to Turkish Column in Syria, Force It to Halt Advance

Most of the 7,000-strong Turkish force in al-Qaeda-held northwestern Syria is concentrated just to the east of Idlib city to block the advance of the Syrian army toward the biggest city (and only provincial capital) still in rebel hands.

Yesterday Turkey attempted to change that and dispatched a force southward, to try to establish a bigger presence in the southern part of the Idlib pocket, where the Syrians had just started the second phase of their offensive (and already took a couple of villages).

However, as the Turkish column was underway it came under attack — according to SOHR by “regime artillery fire”. Except that in the video of the incident you can clearly hear jets:

WHO kowtows to China in statement
Wuhan issues order to loosen lockdown, then U-turns
NHC says outbreak is fading, though situation remains "grim"
Iranian lawmaker says more than 50 deaths in Qom; officials say 12
Hong Kong bars South Koreans

Update (0910ET): The coronavirus is already forcing Iranians to tweak certain practices, including their daily greetings.

As we reported over the weekend, more than a dozen towns in Lombardy - the hardest hit region with 167 confirmed cases and 4 deaths - are on complete lockdown. According to the latest update, there are now 219 confirmed cases in Italy, as well as five deaths.

Angelo Borrelli, head of the country's civil protection agency, said Monday during a press briefing that another 91 people are currently in isolation inside their homes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is a companion piece to this, dateline today, also from zerohedge.com, with the following title: 'What Coverup?': WHO Refuses To Acknowledge China's Early Censorship Of Outbreak

The article then goes on to state: "Update (0816ET): For the most part, the WHO briefing on its visit was everything we feared it would be: Nothing revelatory, just long, boring droning and lukewarm praise about China's response to the outbreak, without once mentioning any kind of coverup.

One reporter apparently felt empowered to challenge the Chinese censors and ask about the cover-up, to which the WHO responded: 'What coverup?' "

Outstanding work, gentlemen.

Corporations as Private Sovereign Powers: The Case of Total

Having studied, written on and engaged in public discussion about transnational corporations (TNCs), I have reached the conclusion that we are not collectively equipped to think about the kind of power that they represent, the silent way they exercise their specific form of sovereignty and the numerous mechanisms that allow them to circumvent the law wherever they operate.

To illustrate this, I will focus on just one corporation –Total – as a textbook case, and show what it is capable of globally, rather than piecing together several examples that could be accused of being selectively chosen just to satisfy our research needs.

Total is a corporate group headquartered in France, with operations in 130 countries, 100,000 employees and ‘collaborators’, and a daily production of the equivalent of 2.8 million barrels of oil. In 2018, Total reported net profits of $13.6 billion.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And corporations like TOTAL get away with this kind of behaviour... because they can.

The Lima Group Is More than Just About Venezuela. Scheduling More Coups and Color Revolutions in Latin America?

At the behest of Donald Trump and Chrystia Freeland, the Lima Group met in Ottawa on February 20th, 2020. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Foreign Affairs Minister François-Philippe Champagne dutifully mouthed their set lines and good Samaritan posturing in the pretense of democracy, humanitarianism and the rule of law. Ostensibly, the purpose of this meeting was to devise and orchestrate ways to oust the vile, murderous dictator, as Washington has sought to cast the duly elected President Nicolás Maduro.

Progressive chroniclers and activists have almost exclusively been concerned with the notion that a dismembered Venezuela is the main, or even the only, labor of love of this nefarious little band of economic fundamentalists, death-incanting, democratically-challenged member regimes of the Lima Group. I fear that we may not fully appreciate what this cartel is up to.

Lest We Forget – Hillary Clinton: We Must Destroy Syria for Israel

This article was originally published in 2018.

A leaked Hillary Clinton email confirms that the Obama administration, with Hillary at the helm, orchestrated a civil war in Syria to benefit Israel.

The new Wikileaks release shows the then Secretary of State ordering a war in Syria in order to overthrow the government and oust President Assad, claiming it was the “best way to help Israel”.

Newobserveronline.com reports:

The document was one of many unclassified by the US Department of State under case number F-2014-20439, Doc No. C05794498, following the uproar over Clinton’s private email server kept at her house while she served as Secretary of State from 2009 to 2013.

Although the Wikileaks transcript dates the email as December 31, 2000, this is an error on their part, as the contents of the email (in particular the reference to May 2012 talks between Iran and the west over its nuclear program in Istanbul) show that the email was in fact sent on December 31, 2012.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Just in case we are looking at a "brokered Democratic convention", (read; insert Hillary as (failed) Presidential candidate again), please remember; we are looking at a woman for whom American lives are expendable for Israel, no matter how much blood and money is spent on wars with which to protect it from its own bad behaviour.

Israeli bulldozer dragging Palestinian's body in Gaza sparks outrage

"Following the successful thwarting of the attack near the Gaza Strip fence earlier this morning, an IDF [Israeli army] bulldozer extracted the body of one of the attackers," a military spokeswoman told AFP.

Footage widely shared and condemned by Palestinians and others on social media showed an Israeli army bulldozer, escorted by a Merkava battle tank, confronting young men who tried to evacuate the wounded. The bulldozer is then seen carrying a dead man's body along by his clothes.

The Gaza health ministry confirmed that two men were transferred to the European hospital in Khan Younis. One of them had been shot in his legs, it said.

The Legal Centre for Arab Minority Rights in Israel (Adala) has demanded a criminal investigation into the incident.

In a letter to Israeli Chief Military Advocate General Sharon Afek, the centre cited international laws that could classify the incident as a "war crime". It also said the action violates Israeli laws.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have no words for the Israeli violation of this dead Palestinian, and the dragging of him by his clothes on a bulldozer.

Was the guy even guilty of the crimes with which the IDF charged him?!?

We will never know; he was assassinated before a proper inquiry could ever take place.

And if anyone makes the observation that Israel was "lawless" in its actions here, I would beg to differ; the law imposed, and into which Israel has found itself backsliding, as an horrendously apartheid, self-proclaimed theocracy with nuclear weapons, is that of Code Napoleon law, under which suspects are considered guilty until proven innocent.

No better example of this could possibly be found, where the IDF acted as judge, jury, and executioner here; and the butt-ugly reality is, that this has become the "new normal" for the Israeli military and police.

What We’re Not Allowed To Know About the Afghan War

So, to hit only the highest of the highlights: let’s review just what’s (sequentially) in, the security section of SIGAR-46 – with particular attention to what it says, doesn’t say, and says it doesn’t say. The darn think begins with a instructive admission from Secretary of Defense Mark Esper, in which he admits the Afghan War is "still" in "a state of strategic stalemate." Not too comforting, that – especially after 19 years of killing and dying. Then, it quotes a January 22, 2020 White House statement that President Trump’s goal is for the Taliban to demonstrate "a significant and lasting reduction in violence…that would facilitate meaningful negotiations on Afghanistan’s future."

Five things to know about emerging US, Taliban peace deal

The hardest part is yet to come.

Skeptics of the Trump administration's peace efforts have long said the most difficult part will be intra-Afghan talks.

It's also the most critical part, they say, because peace won't happen without political reconciliation in Afghanistan.

The Taliban has previously resisted talks with the Afghan government, which it sees as a puppet of the United States.

Political turmoil within the Afghan government could also complicate talks by giving Afghan President Ashraf Ghani a weakened hand.

Ghani was just declared the winner of the September 2019 presidential elections this past week. But he got only 50.64 percent of the vote, just a smidge above the 50 percent needed to win.

And his chief rival, Abdullah Abdullah, is still disputing the election results, claiming victory himself and pledging to form a government of his own.

Lawmakers remain skeptical.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Had the war criminal President Bush simply paid the price the Taliban was originally asking for lease of Afghanistan pipelines in 2001, none of this would ever have happened.

Nowhere In Sight: Drive for rule of law falters 9 months into Zelensky’s presidency

While running for president, Volodymyr Zelensky harshly criticized Ukraine’s nonexistent rule of law and blamed its failures on then-President Petro Poroshenko. He won the presidency on a promise to overhaul the flawed law enforcement system and imprison corrupt officials.

Yet so far, Zelensky achieved alarmingly little in this area.

Nine months after he took office, corrupt officials are still free, courts show no improvement and sketchy appointments are becoming a key feature of Zelensky’s presidency.

In Zelensky’s first year, Ukraine dropped by two points in the Corruption Perception Index, an annual ranking by Transparency International.

The organization specified where Ukraine was failing: no independent judiciary formed, anti-corruption bodies lack capacity and the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU), successor of the Soviet-era KGB, still has the power to prosecute economic crimes – which effectively means harassing or extorting businesses.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I sincerely believe that when Zelenesky was elected, he really did mean to do what he said regarding corruption in Ukraine; unfortunately, the problems were a lot bigger, and much more intractible, than even he had anticipated.

DHS WHISTLEBLOWER FOUND DEAD ON A ROAD SIDE WITH A ‘SELF-INFLICTED GUNSHOT WOUND’

SOURCE: DAILYMAIL.CO.UK
Department of Homeland Security whistleblower Philip Haney, who spoke out against his own agency during the Obama administration, was found shot dead in California.

The Amador County Sheriff’s Office said that authorities responded to reports of a man lying on the ground with an apparent gunshot injury near Highway 124 and Highway 16 in Plymouth.

Red State and Heavy said Haney had been missing since Wednesday, and that the gunshot wound was found in his chest.

‘Upon their arrival, they located and identified 66-year-old Philip Haney, who was deceased and appeared to have suffered a single, self-inflicted gunshot wound,’ said authorities, according to the Washington Examiner.

Sources said Haney, who formally retired in 2015, was recently in contact with top government officials about return to work with DHS. He was also engaged to be married.

REVEALED: CHIEF MAGISTRATE IN ASSANGE CASE RECEIVED FINANCIAL BENEFITS FROM SECRETIVE PARTNER ORGANISATIONS OF UK FOREIGN OFFICE

The senior judge overseeing the extradition proceedings of WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange received financial benefits from two partner organisations of the British Foreign Office before her appointment, it can be revealed.
BY MATT KENNARD AND MARK CURTIS AND CROSS-POSTED FROM THE DAILY MAVERICK.
It can further be revealed that Lady Emma Arbuthnot was appointed Chief Magistrate in Westminster on the advice of a Conservative government minister with whom she had attended a secretive meeting organised by one of these Foreign Office partner organisations two years before.

Liz Truss, then Justice Secretary, “advised” the Queen to appoint Lady Arbuthnot in October 2016. Two years before, Truss — who is now Trade Secretary — and Lady Arbuthnot both attended an off-the-record two-day meeting in Bilbao, Spain.

Pierson reportedly told lawmakers that Russia was interfering in the 2020 election with the aim of helping President Trump win re-election, despite no evidence suggesting that was Russia's intention.

MAPPING OUT THE BANKING ELITE’S GOAL FOR A CASHLESS MONETARY SYSTEM – PART TWO

SOURCE: STEVEN GUINNESS

In the first part of this article we traced the development of the ‘Utility Settlement Coin‘ – a project that began in 2015 and which has now evolved through the inception of a consortium called Fnality International. Fnality are comprised of a number of the world’s biggest banks including Barclays and UBS, all of whom are shareholders in the scheme. Their objective as stated on the company’s website reads:

Fnality International has been founded to create a network of decentralised Financial Market Infrastructures (dFMIs) to deliver the means of payment-on-chain in tomorrow’s wholesale banking markets.

In practice, what Fnality are seeking to deliver is the construction of a distributed ledger technology based global payment system, one that can ‘facilitate tokenised, peer-to-peer markets‘.

IN 2020, MORE PEOPLE ARE ENSLAVED ON EARTH THAN EVER BEFORE IN HUMAN HISTORY

SOURCE: THE FREE THOUGHT PROJECT
(Support Free Thought) -

Despite massive leaps and bounds in technology and quality of life across the planet, there is still a very dark problem and it is hiding in plain sight. Slavery. According to the most recent data, there are over 40 million people in slavery with 1 in 4 of them being children. Its scope is massive and so are its profits — raking in around $150 billion annually.

A recent article published in Psychology Today lays out an ominous picture on the state of the free world. “Never before in human history have this many people been enslaved,” write Jenny Hwang and Shayne Moore in their report on the heart-rending data about child trafficking.

In the US, child trafficking is a growing problem in all 50 states. Children, young girls—some as young as 9 years old—are being bought and sold for sex in America. The average age for a young woman being sold for sex is now 13 years old.

Coronavirus: South Korea placed on ‘red alert’ as fifth person diesMore than 9,000 Shincheonji church members in self-quarantine as president describes coming days as ‘very important moment’

South Korea’s president Moon Jae-in has placed the country on “red alert” after it reported its fifth death and more than 123 new coronavirus cases, taking the total number of infected to 556.

As the nation struggled on Sunday to contain the deadly Covid-19 outbreak in the city of Daegu, the president described the coming days as “a very important moment”, the news agency Yonhap said.

The government would bolster its fight against the virus by raising the alert level one notch to the highest of “red”, he told an emergency meeting of agencies in Seoul on Sunday.

Of the 123 new cases, 75 are related to the Shincheonji church in the country’s fourth-largest city of Daegu and a neighbouring hospital.

The Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said it has placed more than 9,000 Shincheonji members in self-quarantine and thousands of worshippers have been screened for the virus.

Today in History: FDR Issues Executive Order Creating American Concentration CampsBy: Dave Benner|Published on: Feb 19, 2020|Categories: History

On this date in 1942, Franklin Roosevelt signed the infamous executive order 9066, authorizing the War Department to establish military zones that would serve as internment camps for mostly Japanese and Italian Americans.

After the United States entered World War II, the president felt that the presence of foreign nationals could not be tolerated in time of war, and would produce seditious and rebellious behavior:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Many, particularly internment camp members from Hawaii, never got anything back, in terms of money, or lands they may have owned before their internment; it was, at worst, a cynical land and money grab, many times from Asian citizens who never did - or would have - hurt this country in any way.

Saudi Arabia Says It Intercepted Several Missiles From Yemen

Saudi Arabia’s state media has reported that they intercepted several missiles Friday which were fired from northern Yemen. They say the missiles were deliberately aimed at civilians, accusing the Houthis of turning the Yemeni capital of Sanaa into a hub for missiles.

The Houthis confirmed their strikes, saying they hit targets in Saudi Arabia “with precision” and that Saudi Aramco was struck. Aramco made no comments on the incident, and Saudi reports similarly made no mention of them being hit.

In the past, successful Houthi attacks on Saudi Arabia have been blamed more or less entirely on Iran. Saudi coalition officials this time are trying to emphasize the Houthi “threat” to civilians to justify the ongoing war.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Saudis need to stop attempting to position themselves as "a force for good" in Yemen, when they are methodically slaughtering infants; toddlers; children; women; and the medically fragile elderly, then attempting to blame the Houthis for these assassinations.

It's not working; even the American people are awake enough to understand who the "bad guy" is here, and that ... is saying something.

Pompeo Stresses Iranian Threat in Saudi Visit, Meets New Sultan in Oman

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has been on a world tour that brought him to Munich, parts of Africa and, most recently, Saudi Arabia and Oman. Not surprisingly, Pompeo’s visit to the two Gulf countries was mostly focused on countering Iran, although he was forced to address the issue of imprisoned US citizens inside Saudi Arabia.

Before traveling to Saudi Arabia, Pompeo talked to reporters in Ethiopia on Wednesday about the Trump administration’s “maximum pressure” campaign against Iran. “The pressure campaign continues. It’s not just an economic pressure campaign, it’s diplomatic pressures, isolation through diplomacy, as well,” Pompeo said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

More sound and fury, on the part of Pompeo against Iran, signifying.... absolutely nothing.

What, please, has Iran done to the world to make it the world's enemy, except to thrive economically, after the 1979 Revolution?!?

The short answer is, nothing.

And before it gets pulled from English speaking audiences, please bop over to the English language version of www.presstv.com, and see just what the Iranians are saying about themselves, and about world affairs.

I would politely suggest to both Israel's Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu, and the US's President Trump, that although Iranian leadership may be many things (including being a theocracy, as is Israel Israel has evolved from democracy to theocracy) , one of them is not wild-ass crazy; they will not do something overtly aggressive, because they understand that should they do something stupid, it will result in that country being melted into green glass by a joint US/Israeli nuclear strike against it.

As Turkey Escalates Syria Fight, Growing Pressure for US to Get InvolvedTurkey wants US warplanes, Patriot missiles in Idlib

Turkey continues to step up fighting in northern Syria, running up against Russian forces, and giving the appearance of an imminent war in the Idlib Province. Turkey’s willingness to escalate seems to have been picked up by US encouragement, and now Turkey seems to be leading the call to get the US dragged into this conflict as well.

US interests in the Idlib Province are virtually non-existent. Any US-backed rebels that were once there have been wiped out, or aligned to some Islamist group long ago. Arguments for intervention are that Idlib is becoming a flashpoint between Russia and Turkey.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: Turkey, looking at its battered and flagging options in Syria, against Syrian and Russian military push-back, wants war between the US and Russia in Syria.

And we have a companion piece on this issue, also from anti-war.com,featuring the following headline: As Syria’s War Escalates, Growing Risks of Regional Turmoil:
Conflict increasingly centered around major foreign actors

The article goes on to state: "This week of fighting in northeastern Syria saw a disturbing escalation, with Turkey bringing itself more directly into the war, and several other foreign powers at risk of being dragged in as well.

Turkey’s commitment to prevent Syria from winning the war has threatened to turn this into a border war, and there are a lot of regional interests that could be involved. Russia has warned Turkey away and almost certainly is going to limit how far Turkey can go before they directly intervene to stop them.

That’s already a substantial fight, and with Turkey trying to get the US directly involved in this part of Syria, it could kick off direct military confrontation between the US and Russia. The US has been publicly endorsing Turkey’s action, but it remains to be seen if they’ll get themselves drawn into a war over it."

Unfortunately, just because something is the most monumentally ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid thing the US government and military could possibly do, is utterly no guarantee that the US will not do it.

I am quite certain that one of the world's best "Trump Whisperers", Bibi Netanyahu, facing one of the most contentious political fights for his life, come the Israeli elections in early March, is "encouraging" Trump to take this idiotic step, toward "regime change" in Damascus, no matter even if it will mean war with Russia, even though the US military is woefully unprepared, under-staffed, and dealing with inferior weaponry, in attempting such a task.

Mr. President: I am respectfully requesting that you NOT commit to a war in Syria at this time. Our military is stretched to the limit with regard to personnel; there is no money, no manufacturing, and no real weaponry advantage we have over the Russian military at this time, and anyone with any horse-sense on this issue, will tell you so, no matter how angry that will probably make you at this time.

And if what I am telling you regarding the status of the US military is the butt-ugly truth right now, (and sir, forgive me, but it is), you have a national, and moral, obligation to fix it: please do so, and right the hell now.

You are welcome, Mr. President.

"Biggest Humanitarian Horror Story Of The 21st Century": Up To A Million Refugees Trying To Flee Idlib

The ongoing final battle for Idlib could unleash the biggest refugee exodus the nine-year war has seen, United Nations officials are warning.

Recent statements from the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs puts the latest wave of civilian displacement since December 1 at 700,000.

Turkey's Erdogan is now petitioning the US and NATO to given military assistance against the rapidly advancing Syrian Army backed by Russian air power. International reports suggest up to one million internally displaced persons are now surging toward the Turkish border.

The Wall Street Journal reports that "Families in northwestern Syria are trapped between the advancing Syrian military — backed by Russian airstrikes and pro-Iranian militias — and Turkey."

The report notes Turkey has sealed the border using its military:

"The border is closed to refugees, secured by walls, trenches and guards who have shot people trying to cross without permission," according to the WSJ.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Of course, the Wall Street Journal will not mention what the US has supported here for years; that would really eviscerate the narrative that "Whoever the US sponsors, are always the good guys."

There are no easy answers here; but that being said, the US is horrifically culpable in this humanitarian catastrophe, having supported/armed/financed alleged "Syrian moderate rebels" ( read: ISIS, Al Qaeda) for years here.

Italy becomes Europe’s largest coronavirus hot spot with 2 deaths & 79 cases across 5 regions

The number of confirmed Covid-19 coronavirus cases has soared to at least 79 in Italy, forcing authorities to introduce increasingly strict containment and quarantine measures in the northern regions of Lombardy and Veneto.
A 78-year-old man died near Padua in the Veneto region on Friday night, becoming the second victim of the virus in Italy, after a 76-year-old woman was found dead on Thursday 50km south of Milan.

At least 17 people have been confirmed infected in Veneto so far, including the latest victim’s wife and daughter, as authorities are still mulling whether the Carnival of Venice events should be cancelled. In neighboring Lombardy, there are 54 cases, including one in Milan – a city with a population of 1.4 million, where Women’s Fashion Week is currently taking place.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Prayers for the families and friends of those affected; but again, China's scientists, and the world's scientists, need to work together, with complete transparency, to determine what the hell happened; develop and fast-track a vaccine; and figure out how to prevent such a slate-wiper from ever rearing its ugly head again.

As to whether this will happen, is anyone's guess; but logically, this is what should happen.

Erdogan, Putin, Merkel and Macron to Meet March 5 on Idlib

The Turkish, Russian, German and French leaders will meet on March 5 to try to find a solution to the crisis in the city of Idlib as Turkey and Russian-backed Syrian forces risk confrontation in the region.

Following phone calls with Russian President Vladimir Putin, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Saturday that he will meet them all on March 5, without disclosing the location. As Turkey slides toward war, Ankara has appealed to the U.S. and its European allies for support in a conflict that risks undermining the friendly ties he’s built with Moscow.

READ: Turkey and Russia Near Breaking Point in Syrian Standoff

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder just what kinds of back-channel communications are going on here, between Ankara and DC; because the US still wants al-Assad out of Damascus, has Turkey been promised some kind of quid pro quo, for keeping Turkish, and Turkish-backed rebels in Idlib, no matter the costs from Syrian and Russian military?!?

Looking at the apparent madness of Edrogan's stand and demands here, this is almost the only thing which makes sense.

YOUTUBE BANS CHRISTIAN BROADCASTER TRUNEWS FOR 'HATE SPEECH'

"It was only a matter of time, YouTube finally canceled our channel," Wiles said on his show Thursday. "What was our crime? They accused us of hate speech."

"Of course, there is no such thing as hate speech -- it's a crime that was invented by the political left several decades ago," he said. "What it really means is free speech that somebody doesn't like."

Wiles said the "final nail in the coffin" according to YouTube was their February 12 interview with Israeli News Live's Steve and Jana Ben-Nun titled, "Christianity Vs. Evangelical Zionism."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I do not wish to conjecture about "the gates of hell", but I would like to suggest that Pastor Wiles, and his brother and sister Christian broadcasters, need to gather at the "gates of pragmatism".

There are going to be some real, and radical improvements in radio signal distribution, which will not need huge budgets, offices, or studios, but will ultimately reach out to a far greater number of people than current technology will allow; this is the "wave" Christian broadcasters need to be riding, and about which they need to educate themselves and their staffs.

And major congrats to YouTube, and your CEO, Sundar Pichai, for having become this government's Surveillance Arm; all that money you receive, for stomping down people with whom you, and this government, disagree so vehemently, that you shut people out for "non-conforming" ideas, must be ... comforting; at least for now.

TRUMP APPOINTS PRO-ISRAEL, ANTI-IRAN AMB. RICHARD GRENELL AS ACTING INTELLIGENCE CHIEF

SOURCE: CHRIS MENAHAN, INFORMATION LIBERATION
President Donald Trump on Wednesday appointed US Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell as the acting director of national intelligence, making him the first openly gay person to serve in a cabinet-level position.

Donald J. Trump
?
@realDonaldTrump
Thank you to our great US Ambassador to Germany, @RichardGrenell, for stepping in to serve as acting DNI. I will be nominating a terrific candidate for the job very soon. Stay tuned!

As The Jerusalem Post reports, Grenell is known for his "pro-Israel and anti-Iran" stances.

"For Israel's security and defense establishment, Grenell's hawkish views towards Iran's regime will be welcomed with open arms," Foundation for Defense of Democracies fellow Benjamin Weinthal said.

Though Grenell officially serves as the US' ambassador to Germany, one might assume by looking at his Twitter feed that he was Israel's ambassador to America.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This absolutely does not augur well for peace in the Middle East, at all; but peace, of course, is utterly not what either Netanyahu nor President Trump wants to see happen here, but a massive "regime change" in Tehran, to be brought about "by any means necessary".

I would, however, like to politely remind Prime Minister Netanyahu; President Trump; and Acting DNI Grennell, of the following, reported in the English language version of the Moscow Times last summer:

Iran ‘Won’t Be Alone’ If U.S. Attacks, Russian Official Says

The article goes on to state: "“Iran will withstand this type of fight and Iran is not alone,” Zamir Kabulov, the Foreign Ministry’s special envoy for Asian countries including Iran, said at a Russian-Iranian policy forum in Moscow.

When asked if Russia was ready to provide material support to Iran if the U.S. attacks it, Kabulov said that “specific actions are a question for the Russian president.”

“But it’s not just Russia, many other countries sympathize and empathize with Iran,” the Kommersant business daily quoted him as saying. “Tehran won’t be alone if the U.S., God forbid, takes wild and irresponsible actions against it.”

So, gentlemen, there you have it; should the US(and/or Israel) attack Iran, Russia, and some other, yet to be identified regional players, will be working with Iran to stop such a campaign.

If Kabulov has made the Iranian diplomats who attended this conference such a promise, you can bet it came directly down from "the boss", Vlad Putin; career politicians like Kabulov do not even fart, without Putin's express permission.

So, gentlemen, war with Russia over.... Iran?!?

Would someone please, run a cost/benefit analysis of what such a US military campaign would cost, in American blood and money?!?

And President Trump, are you willing to bet the future of your political party on such a dicey prospect, at the end of your first term, or the beginning of your second?!?

And are you willing to face the political consequences of having to reintroduce the draft, which this time, according to legislation quietly ready for implementation, will be coming not only for our young men, but also for our young women as well?!?

I would hope that the answer here will be, "HELL, no!!"

Rove's Reality

How could Rove’s predictions so totally materialize? There’s a simple answer: ‘they’ got away with momentous lies at an early stage. The more authorities lie successfully the more they are likely to lie again in a big way to serve the purposes of earlier lies. The ‘they’ stands for those individuals and groups in the power system who operate beyond legal limits as a hydra-headed entity, whose coordination depends on the project, campaign, mission, or operation at hand. Those with much power got away with excessive extralegal use of it since the beginning of this century because systems of holding the powerful to account have crumbled on both sides of the Atlantic. Hence, potential opposition to what the reality architects were doing dwindled to almost nothing. At the same time, people whose job or personal inclination leads them to ferret out truth were made to feel guilty for pursuing it.

110 US troops suffered concussion, brain injury in Iranian strike: Pentagon

The US Defense Department has yet again raised the number of troops wounded in Iran's retaliatory missile attack in Iraq last month, saying they have suffered “traumatic brain injuries.”

The State and Heresy

The key text for Christians is chapter 13 of St. Paul’s Epistle to the Romans, which begins: “You must all obey the governing authorities. Since all government comes from God, the civil authorities were appointed by God, and so anyone who resists authority is rebelling against God’s decision, and such an act is bound to be punished.

Today almost nobody holds the position of Romans 13 in its full rigor, if that means a duty of unqualified submission to whatever regime happens to exist. Nearly all Christians distinguish between legitimate and illegitimate regimes; if rebellion is always a sin, how can we have a duty to obey the successful rebel when he assumes power? Must we obey the tsar one day, and the Lenin who topples him the next? Does Paul mean to say: “Thou shalt obey anyone who holds coercive power over thee”?

Chuck Baldwin - This is ZOG (Zionist Occupational Gov't.)

While US troops are fighting Israel's wars abroad, the homeland has been conquered not by arms, but by money. How should Americans respond to being subjugated?

by Chuck Baldwin
(Abridged by henrymakow.com)
. The entire political debate in America centers on the left-right paradigm. If you are a Republican, Democrats are the enemy; if you are a Democrat, Republicans are the enemy. The entire political world revolves around this notion.

It's all a game, a façade, a hoax.

Here's how it works: When the ruling class wants to focus on building a socialist Welfare state, dismantling traditional cultural and religious norms and enacting gun control, it puts liberal Democrats in power. And when it wants to focus on building the Warfare State and creating foreign enemies for the purpose of expanding the "war on terror" and a global surveillance state, it puts conservative Republicans in charge.

Bernie Sanders briefed by U.S. officials that Russia is trying to help his presidential campaign

U.S. officials have told Sen. Bernie Sanders that Russia is attempting to help his presidential campaign as part of an effort to interfere with the Democratic contest, according to people familiar with the matter.

President Trump and lawmakers on Capitol Hill also have been informed about the Russian assistance to the Vermont senator, those people said, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive intelligence.

It is not clear what form that Russian assistance has taken. U.S. prosecutors found a Russian effort in 2016 to use social media to boost Sanders’s campaign against Hillary Clinton, part of a broader effort to hurt Clinton, sow dissension in the American electorate and ultimately help elect Donald Trump.

“I don’t care, frankly, who [Russian President Vladimir] Putin wants to be president,” Sanders said in a statement. “My message to Putin is clear: Stay out of American elections, and as president I will make sure that you do."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, the Dementocrats couldn't get this crud to stick to President Trump (yet again; desperation on the cusp of madness, folks), so they decided that Bernie Sanders would be the next best "sacrificial lamb" here, wanting desperately to get him out of contention before the Democratic Convention, slated for Mon, Jul 13, 2020 – Thu, Jul 16, 2020, at the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee, in Wisconsin.

But looking at the guy's momentum in this campaign, unless something wicked his way comes, or there's a brokered convention (which Bloomberg and Clinton are desperately working to have happen), it looks like he may well be the Democratic Party's nominee for President, which means that the Democrats will lose to Trump yet again in another epic fail, because they could not find a Presidential candidate who represents the large centerist faction of their party.

These self-inflicted wounds will keep coming for Democrats at the national level, unless and until they absorb and internalize the lessons of 2016, and most probably the coming lessons of 2020; and folks, all the yelling, screaming, howling at the moon, or physically lashing out at others who may think differently than they do, such as the Antifa thugs populating our streets and threatening conservatives, will be utterly for naught.

The "golden words" for the day, henceforward, for our Dementocrat brothers and sisters are "common ground"; I would really like to hope that some intelligent forces in the party get this, and start to work with this reality ASAP.

NANOTECHNOLOGY: ONE WORLD, ONE BRAIN

BY JON RAPPOPORT
From lexico.com: nanotechnology: “The branch of technology that deals with dimensions and tolerances of less than 100 nanometers, especially the manipulation of individual atoms and molecules.”

The recent arrest of Harvard pioneer in the field of nanotechnology, Charles Lieber—on charges of lying to federal authorities about his business connections to China—has exposed wide-ranging relationships among American and Chinese researchers.

These relationships include, above all, the open sharing of sensitive technologies that, once upon a time, would have been considered closely guarded state secrets. (See my recent piece, “Behind the explosive Charles Lieber scandal.”)

Here are quotes from the journal Nano Today, from a 2019 paper titled: “Nanowire probes could drive high-resolution brain-machine interfaces”. Its authors are Chinese and American:

CHINA DEPLOYS AGRICULTURAL ROBOTS AND DRONES TO FIGHT VIRUS OUTBREAK

SOURCE: ZERO HEDGE
XAG Co., Ltd. was selected by the Chinese government late last month for the deployment of its ground-based robots and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) to spray powerful disinfectants across public places in cities where the Covid-19 outbreak is the worse.

XAG is using a fleet of R80 Agricultural Utility Vehicle robots with 80-liter (21 gallons) sprayers for ground-based disinfectant operations across public places.

The company tweeted several pictures of the R80 in action, spraying disinfectant across a "parking lot outside the office block in Guangzhou."

@XAG_official
Our farm #robot R80 has stepped forward to join the #fightcoronavirus operation, disinfecting parking lot outside the office block in Guangzhou. Lightweight, flexible to traverse small districts, R80 can disinfect an area of up to 64800 square metres per hour, with no dead ends.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but most disinfectants... are anti-bacterial; what we are dealing with here, with the coronavirus, is... a virus, not a bacteria.

Were I a Chinese citizen, reading this blurb, I would be infinitely more comforted understanding that some of the chemicals in this disinfectant were actually anti-viral, rather than just specifically anti-bacterial.

COP GETS 7 YEARS AFTER ARRESTING PEOPLE FOR HEROIN, STEALING IT FROM DEPT, SELLING IT

SOURCE: JACK BURNS
(Support Free Thought) -

Haywood County, NC — A Haywood County detective was sentenced to 7.5 years in prison this week for breaking into the evidence locker and dealing heroin. Kevin Smathers was terminated from the Haywood County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO) in August 2018 after his crimes were discovered and the State Bureau of Investigations (SBI) was asked to come and investigate. During his time as a detective, Smathers was undoubtedly responsible for putting drug dealers behind bars—only to become one himself.

After the scandal came to light, the Sheriff’s Office asked for outside auditors to take inventory of the evidence room. Following the audit, in the Spring of 2019, Smathers was indicted on 16 counts of breaking and entering (Evidence Room) and 1 count of trafficking opium or heroin.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My question is, why did it take so long to discover that this cop had gone rogue, before the audit was scheduled, and charges were brought against this man?!?

Food Supply to Collapse after Outbreak? Billionaires Predict “Global Problems”

Agenda 21/2030 asymmetric war on humanity: although superficially counter-intuitive, releasing a virulent, persistent and deadly pandemic like the CoronoaVirus into China first benefits the globalist agenda.

As the totalitarian government in China allows the ruling clique to do what it wishes with the Chinese people: quarantines, forced vaccines, exclusion zones, round-ups, mass detentions, hospitals and 'deathatoriums', crematoriums ... all can be quickly built and implemented as regard for human rights and due process in China are limited.

In the United States, still a functioning democracy, response times will be slowed by 'due process', allowing the pandemic to gain a stronger foothold, its devastating effects on U.S. health, infrastructure, supply chains lasting longer. As China quickly recovers, the United States will still languish as a result of this disease.

Chinese Coronavirus Patient Reinfected 10 Days After Leaving Hospital

In retrospect, the CDC will soon be proven correct in its dire warning that repatriating a full plane of both infected and healthy individuals could be a catastrophic error, because it now appears that not only can the virus remain latent for as long as 42 days, 4 weeks longer than traditionally assumed, resulting in numerous false negative cases as infected carrier slip across borders undetected, but far more ominously, it now appears that the diseases can re-infect recently "cured" patients, because as Taiwan News reports, a Chinese patient who just recovered from the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) has been infected for the second time in the province of Sichuan, according to local health officials.

On Wednesday (Feb. 19), the People's Daily reported that a man in Sichuan's capital Chengdu had tested positive for the virus during a regular check-up just ten days after being discharged from the hospital. The report said he had previously been cleared of the virus by medical staff.

Excellent New Book About the Bizarre UK Skripal Poisonings Gets to the Truth (John Helmer)

It is exactly two years since the case of two Russians, Sergei and Yulia Skripal, began with their collapse on a park bench in the middle of England on the afternoon of March 4, 2018.

On their anniversary it is necessary to tell this story. But it isn’t the story of what happened. This is because the only people who can tell that one, the Skripals, are locked away in isolation, guarded by determined men under secret government orders.

Instead, this is the story of what didn’t happen – provably didn’t happen because it was quite impossible circumstantially; and because the legal papers warranting that it did have not been signed by a judge, tested in a court of law, or released in public.

SOUTH DAKOTA CONSIDERS FIRST STATE BILL TO OUTLAW ALL VACCINE AND MEDICAL MANDATES

SOURCE: AGE OF AUTISM
Who owns your body?

A growing number of legislators in South Dakota believe you do.

They have introduced a bill to not only end vaccine mandates in the state, but all future medical mandates that my be introduced in generations to come.

One hundred and fifteen years ago this month, the US Supreme Court made a decision that because there was a deadly smallpox epidemic, the City of Cambridge, Massachusetts was allowed to charge a pastor five dollars to opt out of a city wide vaccine mandate. The law didn't apply to children.

That precedent has been the basis for the mandate of dozens of now liability-free vaccines for children and adults, where no epidemic (or even one case) exists, at the costs of thousands, or even hundred of thousands, per year to opt out. It is even the basis on which the Supreme Court ruled that women can be force sterilized, for the good of themselves and society, of course.

SOURCE: MOON OF ALABAMA

Russia has called Turkey's bluff of a wide ranging attack on Syrian government forces. The Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan will now have to find a way out of the Idleb trap he set himself in. His excellent Syria adventure is coming to an end.

Meanwhile we learn that the British military intelligence ran another large dis-information campaign that brought 'Syrian voices' into the 'western' press.

Erdogan continues with his wild rhetoric over Syria.

#ERDOGAN: "#Turkey cannot be confined within the 780,000 km2 border. #Misrata, #Aleppo, #Homs & #Hasaka are outside our actual borders, but they are within our emotional & physical limits, we will confront those who limit our history to only 90yrs."
The Turkish talks with Russia have not gone well. Russia had proposed the following points:

1- 16-km border strip in Idlib under Turkey control
2- Russia controls crossing between Idlib strip and Afrin

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Edrogan's brain is writing checks his military are singularly unable to cash, and his military and political friends back home, had better do some creative heads-up, thinking back in Ankara over this weekend.

I do not know if Turkish law has a legislative equivalent to the US Bill of Rights' 25th Amendment, or if snap elections are allowed, but the rest of the Turkish government, and his military, needs to do something to cage the "Erdo-Madness" here, and right the flip now; otherwise, Russia is going make it difficult for Turkey to be able to do anything on the International stage, and that should give both Turkish political and military leaders an industrial-strength pause for thought right now.

NETANYAHU “OPTIMISTIC” ISRAEL CAN USE POLITICAL PRESSURE TO SHUT DOWN ICC WAR CRIMES PROBE

SOURCE: MINT PRESS
TEL AVIV — Since the International Criminal Court (ICC) announced it would investigate war crimes committed by Israel in the Gaza Strip and occupied West Bank last December, Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been attempting to rally Israel’s allies in a multilateral effort to stop the ICC’s probe.

Those efforts have now left Netanyahu “optimistic,” with the embattled Prime Minister reportedly telling members of his cabinet that Israel’s efforts to lobby other countries against the ICC case is paying off, according to a recent report published by Reuters. “We are struggling against this [proceeding] and, at our side, I must say, are many friends around the world [which] joined the U.S. in a steadfast stand alongside Israel,” Reuters quoted Netanyahu as saying.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF Israel has utterly nothing to hide, in terms of its treatment of Palestinians, why, then is it so terrified of this ICC probe?!?

Is it possible (gasp) that there is some kind of "smoking gun" in the evidence the ICC has garnered, which is going to really make Israel look bad and rotten, should it come to light in the legal process of discovery?!?

The short answer has to be, "HELL, yes!!!", for Netanyahu to be taking such extraordinary steps to shut this investigation down.

SOURCE: CHRIS MENAHAN, INFORMATION LIBERATION

Jewish American pedophiles are escaping justice by fleeing to Israel and automatically attaining Israeli citizenship under their right of return laws, CBS News reports.

Tel Aviv - It's a tense stakeout, waiting for Jimmy Julius Karow to appear. He is a wanted man and is considered dangerous. Accused of sexually assaulting a 9-year-old girl in Oregon in 2000, he fled to Israel before authorities in the U.S. could apprehend him or figure out where he went. Karow has been running from U.S. law enforcement ever since. Currently INTERPOL, an inter-governmental policing organization that works with 194 countries, has a Red Notice to alert police worldwide that he's a fugitive.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

No responsible Jew, no matter the "flavor" of their Judaism (or atheist) in Israel wants to see this happen, particularly when it comes to the sexual exploitation of children.

It would seem reasonable, that the Right of Return needs to be amended, to allow time for at least a cursory look at potential immigrants' criminal records, to prevent his from ever happening in the future, period, end of discussion.

HOW CHINA IS WORKING TO QUARANTINE THE TRUTH ABOUT THE CORONAVIRUS

SOURCE: CRYPTOGON
“Censorship, diversion, and lying.”

Google’s core principals?

*I crack myself up*

This piece is useful in understanding state behavior, in general, and their large, lapdog media and social networking organizations.

Via: DefenseOne:

In its battle to contain the coronavirus, the Chinese government has undertaken a wide range of measures, from shutting down cities to using drones to monitor and compel public compliance with public health edicts. But the regime is also waging a second battle: a campaign to control the world’s discussions of the first.

The weapons in this information war are Beijing’s massive media and online control mechanisms. Its three prevailing tactics—all too common across authoritarian regimes and wider online warfare— are censorship, diversion, and lying. China’s efforts show how an online battle for public security sometimes works in opposition to public health, and it reveals the priorities of an authoritarian regime.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The world's scientific community needs to implore Chinese leadership, in the most gentle, logical, and responsible way possible, that this cover-up, will be what will be remembered in world history, not how this actually came to happen.

VIZIBILEZONE WANTS PEDESTRIANS TO LET DRIVERS TRACK THEIR LOCATION IN REAL-TIME

Have you ever felt unsafe crossing the street? You could look both ways before crossing the street and feel safe, knowing you used common sense to navigate street crossings.

Or, you could download this app which alerts drivers to slow down and/or stop as you approach an intersection allowing you to cross the street safely.

An Israeli start-up company called Viziblezone (VZ) wants pedestrians, bicyclists, people on skateboards, scooters etc., to send their locations to vehicles in real-time.
"Viziblezone has introduced a patent-protected, cutting-edge vehicle integrated “Pedestrian Detector.” The system identifies, tracks and protects pedestrians, even when they go undetected by a fast-approaching driver. The detector is designed to operate in any adverse weather and visibility, whether day or night."
VZ's app could give anyone that that leases their software the ability to know where a person or vehicle is in real-time.

Former Michael Bloomberg aide Arick Wierson, who is pushing the billionaire’s 2020 presidential campaign and attacking Bernie Sanders, helped elect far-right demagogue Jair Bolsonaro in Brazil.

BY BEN NORTON

A Michael Bloomberg surrogate pumping up the billionaire’s 2020 campaign for president also helped to elect Brazil’s extreme-right leader, Jair Bolsonaro, an open supporter of military dictatorship who frequently threatens violence against his political opponents.

Arick Wierson is a public relations strategist who served as a political aide and the top communications adviser to Bloomberg when the Republican media mogul was mayor of New York City.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That Bloomberg is so comfortable, tasking surrogates to support dictatorships in other countries with their PR, to the detriment of the people living in those countries, makes me wonder just what kind of allegiances he has to the Original Contract with America, the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

And a at this moment in time, I find myself singularly uncomfortable with this question, relative to Bloomberg's Presidential candidacy and aspirations.

LEAKED TWITTER DEMO SHOWS RED BANNERS TO INDICATE LIES AND DISINFORMATION UNDER TWEETS

A leaked demo has bright red and orange marks on 'harmfully misleading' tweets

"Twitter is experimenting with adding brightly colored labels directly beneath lies and misinformation posted by politicians and public figures," reports Ben Collins at NBC News.

“Twitter tells me it's a possible iteration of something that will roll out on March 5. Possible community moderation coming, too. We've got screenshots.”

From Ben's NBC News reporting:

In this version, disinformation or misleading information posted by public figures will be corrected directly beneath the tweet by fact-checkers and journalists who are verified on the platform, and possibly other users who will participate in a new “community reports” feature, which the demo claims is “like Wikipedia.”

Webmaster's Commentary:

NEW ‘PURITY TEST’ TOOL TO SCAN HOLLYWOOD SCRIPTS FOR ‘DIVERSITY BIAS’

Major Hollywood studios are set to use a new tool that scans movie & TV scripts and flags up any examples where “diversity” is not portrayed positively in a chilling new development that has echoes of Soviet realism.

Called ‘Spellcheck for Bias’, the tool was developed by the Davis’ Institute on Gender in Media and USC’s Viterbi School of Engineering. It is set to be implemented by Universal Pictures, DreamWorks Animation, Focus Features and NBC Entertainment within the near future.

“The tool supposedly breaks down diversity in material such as scripts and advertising briefs by scanning for mentions of LGBTQ, race, and disabilities, and then identifying how positively such things are portrayed,” writes Zachary Leeman.

‘Beetlejuice’ actress Geena Davis has also partnered with Universal Filmed Entertainment Group to use the program “to police gender roles in scripts.”

REVEALED: Saudi Arabia infiltrated Twitter 'by using two corrupt moles working for the site to exploit security flaws, spy on dissidents and hack thousands of users' data'

Saudi Arabian officials' campaign to lure Twitter workers to spy on social media users in return for cash and gifts began with a simple request to verify an account in 2014, a criminal complaint lodge by the FBI has revealed.

Ahmad Abouammo, 41, and Ali Alzabarah, 35, were cultivated by the country's government to hand over information on users who criticized the Saudi royals.

The personal data accessed would have allowed users to be tracked down in real life, a source told BuzzFeed News.

Colleagues of Abouammo have alleged that other staff members were pressed for information by the US and foreign governments and given little training to deal with it.

Abouammo, a US citizen, and Alzabarah, a Saudi living in California, were reported by The Washington Post have been directed by Bader al-Asaker, a Saudi official. Prosecutors said al-Asaker worked for man named as 'Royal Family Member-1,' reported to be Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS).
