NEVADA ACCUSES US GOVERNMENT OF 'SECRET PLUTONIUM SMUGGLING'

SOURCE: GO.COM
RENO, Nev. -- Nevada wants a federal judge to declare illegal what it calls the U.S. government's “secret plutonium smuggling operation” and order the removal of weapons-grade material already shipped to a security site north of Las Vegas over the state's objections.

The latest filing in a yearlong legal battle asks U.S. District Judge Miranda Du in Reno to reject the government's motion to dismiss the state's lawsuit. Nevada is challenging the Energy Department's covert shipment of the highly radioactive material from South Carolina last year.

The department insists the issue is moot because it already has promised that no more plutonium will be brought to Nevada.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The effects of this plutonium may be with the residents (particularly those who live in close proximity to this site) of the state of Nevada for quite some time to come; I can completely understand why Nevadans are upset with this.

THOUSANDS OF COPS, VETERANS, SUPPORTERS PLEDGE TO JOIN MILITIA IN VIRGINIA TO COMBAT UNCONSTITUTIONAL LAWS

SOURCE: LAW ENFORCEMENT TODAY
Virginia – Monday morning, Law Enforcement Today reported on how Tazewell County, Virginia is crafting a militia to defend the Constitution in the state. And within hours, we were flooded with thousands of emails from people across the state – police officers, veterans, and patriotic Americans – who said they are joining.

And it’s a movement that’s gaining traction across the state.

Wrote one man:

“I am Vietnam vet, ex-police, retired and am behind your ideas 100% , anything I can do I would like to help.

I live in Franklin County, which voted down being a sanctuary city being the council is Democratic, a moonshine county giving up their guns is dumb.

The South gave up their flag, their statues and now they want their guns, sounds like Hitler’s Germany.”

Wrote another:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We may well, potentially, be seeing a movement which could, potentially, go national.

House votes to impeach President Donald Trump

Read what Pelosi said in the article. She has gone nutzs!

"Without receiving a single Republican vote, and without providing any proof of wrongdoing, Democrats pushed illegitimate articles of impeachment against the President through the House of Representatives," Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham said. "Democrats have chosen to proceed on this partisan basis in spite of the fact that the president did nothing wrong."

A woman kept her dead husband's body in a freezer for 10 years and collected his VA benefits, police say

When Utah police arrived at a retirement community to conduct a welfare check last month, they were disturbed to find not only the body of the elderly woman who lived there, but an additional man's corpse tucked inside a deep freezer in her utility room......

Why a medieval peasant got more vacation time than you

The Lord only took 1/3 off the top,they worked only 150 days a year. Serfs drank beer all year round and also had entertainment. Other than a few plagues,The Black Death, the Vikings, a dozen Crusades and that 100 year war thing that lasted for 116 years,a better deal than what we get today.

Plowing and harvesting were backbreaking toil, but the peasant enjoyed anywhere from eight weeks to half the year off. The Church, mindful of how to keep a population from rebelling, enforced frequent mandatory holidays. Weddings, wakes and births might mean a week off quaffing ale to celebrate, and when wandering jugglers or sporting events came to town, the peasant expected time off for entertainment.

French strikers cut ELECTRICITY to thousands of homes, companies and even the Bank of France in bid to force Macron to scrap hated pension reforms

Trade unions cut power to 50,000 homes in Bordeaux and 40,000 in Lyon.

Train services across France also remained disrupted as half a million protested.

President Emmanuel Macron is trying to reform pension system to make it equal.

Thousands of French homes, companies and even the Bank of France have been left without power as strikers march through the streets demanding President Emmanuel Macron drops his hated pension reforms.

Trade unions deliberately severed the electricity supply to 150,000 homes across Bordeaux, Lyon, Nantes and Cherbourg yesterday, and threatened to repeat the action unless the government backs down.

Clinics, fire stations, and railway stations were also left with the lights off, said the government, as the capital Paris remained wracked by protests and without public transport.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to hope that Macron can do something, other than behaving like a spoiled child, due to that fact that the country hates his attempted pension reforms.

Boris Johnson to pass bill making BDS illegal

The new Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Boris Johnson, is allegedly preparing to pass a bill which will outlaw advocacy for the Boycott Divestment and Sanctions Movement (BDS) against Israel, which will make it illegal for public bodies to engage with any group which participates in boycotts of the Israeli regime.

The story, which first surfaced in INews, has now caught wind in the Israeli press and is seen as another win for Israel to have come from Britain’s recent election, with Labor’s pro-Palestinian Jeremy Corbyn losing to his Conservative Party rival.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Wow, that didn't take long at all!!

What Current Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu wants from Western leaders, he gets, with a snap of his fingers.

And Boris, now we know... for whom you really work; the smear against Corbyn's party may well have been orchestrated directly from Tel Aviv, because Netanyahu understood that he would get every support possible from you he wanted, no matter how wrong-headed any decision he might have made could be.

And what do the Palestinians get from such actions?!?

Zero; zip; nada; absolutely nothing, except for more misery; more dislocation; and more deaths against innocent, unarmed protestors demonstrating, peacefully, against the apartheid under which they are living.

I would very much like to remind Johnson of the following statements by Anglican Bishop Desmond Tutu, regarding Israeli apartheid, and the actions taken against him, for not supporting Israel's position on its apartheid against Palestinians:

Nobel Laureate Desmond Tutu Banned From Campus Over Israel Criticism

Desmond Tutu: Israel guilty of apartheid in treatment of Palestinians

And believe me, this is a guy who knows apartheid, because he lived through it, in his own country!!! The Anglican church was very smart in ordaining him as Bishop, because the Boetha government couldn't touch him.

I had the opportunity to hear hear him, at a Los Angeles Episcopal Church, St. John's Episcopal, on Adams Boulevard, many years ago.

His passion for peace, not only for African South Africans, but for all South Africans, was nothing short of completely amazing.

Turkey calls US ending of Cyprus arms embargo ‘dangerous escalation’

Turkey has warned that the United States’ decision to end a decades-old arms embargo on Cyprus would be a “dangerous escalation.”

In a statement issued late Tuesday, the Turkish Foreign Ministry said the US decision “will have no outcome other than hampering efforts toward a settlement on the island and creating a dangerous escalation.”

The US Congress voted Tuesday to lift the arms embargo on Cyprus, which has been in place since 1987. The measure has passed both chambers of Congress as part of a massive defense spending bill, with President Donald Trump likely to sign it.

The bill comes at a time of tensions between Turkey and the US over such issues as Ankara’s purchase of the Russian S-400 system and Washington’s support for Kurdish-led militants in Syria.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This ... could get very ugly, very quickly, and someone with some "male Attributes in NATO", has GOT to start working, very hard, and very intelligently, to prevent two NATO members, Greece and Turkey, from assaulting each other, militarily.

Apple, Google, Tesla profit from child labor in Africa cobalt mines: Lawsuit

Several of the US largest technology firms have been accused of profiting from child labor in Africa cobalt mines, a new lawsuit says.

Apple, Dell, Microsoft, Tesla and Alphabet, the parent company of Google, must pay damages over knowingly profiting from African children laboring under brutal conditions, alleges the suit filed by the nongovernmental organization International Rights Advocates this week.

Cobalt is an essential element used in the rechargeable lithium batteries that fuel many electronic devices.

That’s what the man says: Kremlin backs top general’s assessment that NATO is drilling for large-scale war

The Kremlin has said that it trusts the opinion of a senior Russian general, who has said that NATO's intensified drills this year are an indication that the military bloc is preparing for a major conflict.

Valery Gerasimov, the chair of the Russian General Staff, shared the wary view that the Russian military have about NATO's maneuvers on Tuesday as he gave a year-end briefing to foreign military attaches in Moscow.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said the opinion was based on analyses of data collected by the Russian military and should not be dismissed.

"In this case the professional opinion may be the only correct one, so the presidential administration is in no position to put forward its own military assessment," he said.

Gerasimov said the increased number and scale of military exercises conducted by NATO members this year indicates that the alliance "is purposefully training its troops to be engaged in a major military conflict."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Russian leadership may be many things; stupid, however, is not one of them.

I would like to very politely, but strongly, urge caution, on the part of NATO, to please define what it believes are its "enemies" with a great deal of care and consideration.

Germany ‘won’t back down’ under threat of US sanctions over Nord Stream 2 pipeline with Russia – Merkel

Chancellor Angela Merkel has insisted that Berlin will not give into pressure from Washington after the US Senate approved a bill sanctioning German companies working on a pipeline that will deliver natural gas from Russia.
During Wednesday’s Q&A session in parliament, lawmakers asked Merkel about the possibility of the US slapping sanctions on German companies building the Nord Stream 2 pipeline.

The chancellor said that she firmly opposes such sanctions because they have an extraterritorial effect. They will not push Berlin to abandon the project, however, she said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As the American comedian Ron White frequently mentions, "You can't fix stupid."

And in terms of being one of the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly idiotic things President Trump could have possibly done, just after attempting to shake down NATO members for more money, President Trump wins the crown for complete, abysmal stupidity, relative to both Germany and Europe, with this move.

Deutsche Bahn in Trouble With Berlin Authorities After Exposing Greta Thunberg ‘Train Bluff‘

After the teen climate activist tweeted a picture of herself sitting on the floor of an “overcrowded train” in Germany, the transportation giant reprimanded her for holding back that she had a first-class ticket. As it turned out, Deutsche Bahn might have revealed a bit too much information about her trip.

The German train giant Deutsche Bahn has been called to Berlin’s data protection officer over its sarcastic response to climate activist Greta Thunberg’s tweet about “overcrowded trains”, German media report. Maja Smoltczyk, tasked with watching out for citizens’ privacy, has intervened as the company revealed the teenager’s travel data.

As the official’s spokesman told Tagesspiegel, this fact would lead to “a conversation with Deutsche Bahn about handling passenger rights with regard to personal travel data”. The appointment is planned for within the next few weeks.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This teenager is very adept in manipulating the media; and they just got pilloried... again, by this story!!

Bolivian Attorney General Orders Ex-President Morales' Arrest

Former Bolivian President Evo Morales, who, after resigning, received asylum in Mexico, arrived on 12 December in the capital of Argentina, where he was granted refugee status.

Bolivia’s new Interior Minister Arturo Murillo has on Twitter published an arrest order for the country’s former President Evo Morales.

According to the text of the document, the decision to issue a warrant was taken as part of a criminal investigation into incitement to rebellion, terrorism, and financing terrorism.

The interior minister has already vowed to detain the former president, accusing Morales of inciting anti-government protests that, as Murillo claimed, amounted to terrorism.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is primarily a very public exercise in futility, as Mora has already been given permanent asylum in Argentina; and I sincerely doubt that Argentina will return him back to Bolivia for what is certain to be, a show trial.

Left in Misery’: UN Peacekeepers Fathered, Abandoned Hundreds of Babies in Haiti

Personnel enlisted in the UN Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH) fathered hundreds of babies during their deployment and abandoned the young mothers after being informed of the unexpected pregnancies, a new report published Tuesday by researchers and academics revealed.

“The narratives reveal how girls as young as 11 were sexually abused and impregnated by peacekeepers and then, as one man put it, ‘left in misery’ to raise their children alone, often because the fathers are repatriated once the pregnancy becomes known,” reads the report.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This ... is just morally ill.

What would I do to prevent the problem?!? When people sign on to become "peace keepers", there should be a clause in that contract that if they get a local woman pregnant, and the baby's DNA matches that of the dad, that the father would be liable and bound for their support until they reach adulthood.

It is not as though these people don't know what a condom is, or how to use it, even if their victims do not.

Graphic Video: US Cop Caught Repeatedly Punching, Macing Restrained Inmate’s Face

The Federal Bureau of Investigation has been asked to intervene and probe the beating and pepper spraying of an inmate by a former Ohio deputy who struck the man so hard he broke his hand.

Pike County Sheriff’s Deputy Jeremy Mooney recently resigned after surveillance footage captured his November 18 attack on Thomas Friend, a 27-year-old restrained inmate who had been arrested on a misdemeanor charge.

Mooney can be seen using a fogger to pepper spray Friend at around the 2:18 timestamp. Friend, strapped to a chair, then reacts to the substance and ends up tipping his seat over. Nearly 11 minutes pass before the inmate is picked up.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder just what kind of professional evaluation this officer was given, enabling him to become a Deputy, and if he was on - or just trying to get off- SSRI prescription medication.

Missile-Toe? US General Frets Pyongyang’s ‘Christmas Gift’ Could be Long-Range Test

With North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s New Years’ deadline for resuming negotiations quickly approaching, some Pentagon leaders are fretting that Kim may send the US a “Christmas gift” or possibly ring in the new year with a new long-range missile test. Kim announced a unilateral moratorium on such tests in April 2018.

“A long-range ballistic missile” test is expected before year's end, according to Gen. Charles Brown, commander of Pacific Air Forces and air component commander for US Indo-Pacific Command.

“What I would expect is some type of long-range ballistic missile would be the gift. It’s just a matter of does it come on Christmas Eve, does it come on Christmas Day, does it come after the New Year,” Brown told reporters at a breakfast roundtable on Tuesday, according to The Hill.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What does "negotiation" really entail?!?

We could, reasonably, say, that the process of negotiation demands a "quid pro quo" vision, where if the other country takes steps to negotiate, and provides tangible results to ratchet down tension, the country wanting the other country to take those steps, must then logically take steps of its own to ratchet down the tension.

And here has been the crux of the problem; President Trump has been, essentially telling North Korea that it must do everything the US demands, before it will even think about what the US government "just might" do in return.

President Kim Jung-Un did take some concrete, very visible steps, right after the first summit between himself and President Trump; but the US has done nothing demonstrable to even begin to prove that it is serious, by taking any further steps to lessen the tensions here.

Unfortunately, no matter the advice he may have been given to help shape his foreign policy on North Korea, no one in the bowels of power in DC has been able to successfully educate him on the concept of "face", which is critical to Asian countries and key to successfully deal with Asian leadership.

So President Trump, I am very sorry, but you have brought the current and potentially deadly developments with North Korea, upon your own head.

Because what we are looking at, should North Korea feel sufficiently threatened by your current course of action, will most probably be a war with both North Korea and China.

And that, sir, may just not be a winnable war for the US side.

Moscow and Europe Dislike US Sanctions on Nord Stream 2, Measures Violate Int'l Law - Kremlin

The US Senate on 17 December passed a $738 billion defence bill for the 2020 fiscal year that, in particular, includes sanctions against Nord Stream 2, TurkStream, and bars military-to-military cooperation with Russia.

Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov has slammed US sanctions on Nord Stream 2 as “a perfect example of unfair competition", saying that Washington is imposing more expensive gas on Europe. He continued on by saying that both "Moscow and Europe dislike US sanctions on Nord Stream 2, as these measures violate international law".

"We assume that this project will be completed", Peskov told reporters, when asked whether the construction of the pipeline could be halted due to the sanctions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Congrats, President Trump, for pushing Europe and Turkey closer into the Russian orbit, well done, sir!!

The heights of absurdity have absolutely been breached and reached, with the passage of these sanctions, and President Trump may well have absolutely inflicted the "coup de grace" on NATO, with this bone-headed, tone-deaf move, coupled with his screaming at NATO members for more money, at the Conference earlier this month.

Does the man actually play checkers?!?! And I ask this, because he seems to be completely maladroit at any action which resembles any real diplomacy, and that takes a vision of the long term, as chess does.

Erdogan Threatens Recognition Of 'Genocide' Of Native Americans In Tit-For-Tat

Is this how Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan plans to "get back" at Washington for the recent US bill that recognizes the 1915 Armenian Genocide? Last month he had warned Trump directly of dire consequences if the term "genocide" is formalized in US law.

And now, according to The Independent, Erdogan says Turkey could in turn give legal recognition to the mass killing of native Americans by European settlers and American colonists in the latest tit-for-tat move against the Congressional resolution.

“Can we speak about America without mentioning [Native Americans]? It is a shameful moment in US history,” Erdogan said in a televised interview this week, raising the threat of a reciprocal measure. Theoretically such Turkish legislation would mean the Turkish government could not associate itself with any event or institution which involved denial of the 'genocide' of native Americans.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The irony here, cannot possibly be lost on Americans who are more familiar with the true story of how the West was won; and yes, massive assassinations, coupled with exposure to diseases to which Indigenous Americans had no immunity, were a big part of settlers' successes in the West.

Lights, Camera, Greta! Teen Environmentalist's 'Viral' Rise Has Been A Documentary This Whole Time

eta Thunberg, the 16-year-old environmentalist who started skipping school in 2018 to protest outside the Swedish parliament, has long been promoted a special needs teen whose tireless mission to shame the west into cap-and-trade went 'viral' organically.

In fact, TIME Magazine's Person of the Year had a professional film crew "following Thunberg from her early school strike in Stockholm all the way to parliaments and massive international protests" for a forthcoming documentary on HULU tentatively titled 'Greta,' which is set to air in 2020, according to Deadline.

Director Nathan Grossman - who previously directed a Swedish film about one man's reflection on his life as a carnivore titled "Lusts of the Meat" (Köttets lustar) - has been documenting Greta's mission "to make the world understand the urgency of the climate crisis."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One also has to wonder... in just how many carbon "cap and trade" companies here parents are invested?!?

And trust me, this is NOT a superfluous question!!!!

"Use Extreme Caution": Boaters Warned Of "Unsafe, Erratic" Russian Spy Ship Off Carolina Coast

A Russian spy ship which had been been sailing off the coast of South Carolina and Florida for the past few days has been a source of alarm for US authorities who say it's been operating in an “unsafe” and “erratic” manner.

It prompted an unusual US Coast Guard alert which warned boaters off South Carolina and Georgia to "use extreme caution", especially given the Russian ship, the Viktor Leonov, is avoiding any communication or direct contact with other ships alerting them to its passage, CNN reports. Though not unusual, the ship also turned off its locator when it got near the US coast.

"The United States Coast Guard has received reports indicating that the RFN VIKTOR LEONOV (AGI-175) has been operating in an unsafe manner off the coast of South Carolina and Georgia," the Coast Guard bulletin said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder if this is not "payback" for some rather odd maneuvers US ships have done in the vicinity of Russian ships.

Dear 'Resistance', You Can't Fool All The People All The Time

Authored by Daniel Lazare via The Strategic Culture Foundation,

You can fool all the people some of the time and some of the people all the time, but you can’t fool all the people all the time. So said Abraham Lincoln – maybe. But whoever it was forgot to mention an important corollary: fun as it may be to pull the wool over people’s eyes, you’ll writhe in agony for an equal period once the truth emerges and the fraud is exposed.

This is the significance of Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s devastating report on the FBI investigation of Russiagate suspect Carter Page.

Judge Rules Government Entitled To Snowden Book, Speech Proceeds

A federal judge ruled on Tuesday that the US government is entitled to the proceeds from Edward Snowden's memoir, as well as any money he earns from paid speeches, because the former National Security Agency employee disclosed classified information without approval, according to the Washington Post.

Snowden has been charged with espionage since 2013, when he exposed top-secret surveillance documents in what may have been the biggest security breach in U.S. history.

The former contractor sees himself as a whistleblower compelled to reveal sweeping surveillance programs hidden from the American people. But through two administrations, the government has viewed him as a traitor who escaped justice by fleeing to Russia.

Unable to put him on trial, the Justice Department this year moved to cut off his profits from the book he published, “Permanent Record,” as well as from paid speeches. -Washington Post

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Remember; Snowden has never, ever been proven wrong, in any statement Wikileaks has made; and that ... is why the US government is so absolutely furious with jim, that it would pull this kind of stunt.

America’s illegal alien population is three times Europe’s

American conservatives are concerned that we are a step or two behind Europe in committing open-borders suicide. But if you actually look at the numbers, in many respects America is blazing the trail to destruction much more swiftly than Europe.

A recent Pew Research report estimated the entire illegal immigrant population of Europe is 3.9-4.8 million. That is for an entire continent of 747 million people. The U.S. is less than half the size, yet the estimates of the illegal alien population range from 11 million to as high as 22 million.

Implausible Denials: The Crime at Jabal al Tharda. US-led Air Raid on Behalf of ISIS-Daesh Against Syrian Forces/By Prof. Tim Anderson Global Research, December 17, 2017

On 17 September 2016 a carefully planned US-led air raid on Jabal al Tharda (Mount Tharda), overlooking Deir Ezzor airport, slaughtered over 100 Syrian soldiers and delivered control of the mountain to DAESH / ISIS. After that surprise attack, the terrorist group held the mountain for almost a year, but did not manage to take the airport or the entire city. US-led forces admitted the attack but claimed it was all a ‘mistake’. However uncontested facts, eye witness accounts and critical circumstances show that was a lie. This article sets out the evidence of this crime, in context of Washington’s historical use of mercenaries for covert actions, linked to the doctrine of ‘plausible deniability’.

The Crumbling of America

In June of 2013 an Interstate bridge on a main commercial corridor between Seattle, Washington and Vancouver, Canada, collapsed and fell into the river below after being hit by a truck. This was not a high-speed collision; the truck simply bumped one of the main support pillars at low speed, but the weakened and dilapidated pillar broke from the strain and, without that extra bit of support, the entire bridge immediately collapsed. In prior examinations, the heavily-travelled bridge had not only been rated as functionally obsolete but structurally deficient and requiring replacement.

This is only one of thousands; the great majority of the physical infrastructure of the US is in a similar condition, involving roads, dams, bridges and more. More than 160,000 bridges in the US are officially categorized as dangerous, at risk of collapse, with such collapses now regularly occurring. (1) (2) (3)

The Richest Country’s Empty Plates. 50 Million Hungry Americans

When Reagan came to power in 1980, there were 200 food banks in the US; today there are more than 40,000, all overwhelmed with demand and forced to ration their dispersals. Before 1980, one out of every 50 Americans was dependent on food stamps. Today, it is one out of four.

That 50 million hungry Americans today includes the 25% of all children in the US who go to sleep hungry every night. About 25% of the American population today cannot buy sufficient food to remain healthy, with most of these being hungry for at least three months during each year. It is so bad that many college students have resorted to what we call “dumpster-diving” – looking in garbage bins for edible food.

Perhaps even more alarming was the release of study data in the middle of 2014 documenting that 25% of the US military members are also dependent on food stamps, food banks and other civilian welfare projects for their survival.

On Rogues and Rogue States

Washington never sleeps in its campaigns to improve the lives of people whose most fervent wish is that America stop improving their lives. To give the Afghans democracy, human rights, and American values, the US has for eighteen years been bombing, bombing, bombing a largely illiterate population in a nation where America has no business. It is a coward’s war with warplanes butchering peasants who have no defenses. The pilots and drone operators who do this deserve contempt, as does the country that sends them. How many more years? For what purpose? And how were the German Nazis different?

Why the Media Is Ignoring the Afghanistan Papers

This week, The Washington Post published the Afghanistan Papers, an extensive review of thousands of pages of internal government documents relating to the war in Afghanistan. Like the Pentagon Papers, which showcased the lies underpinning the Vietnam War, the Post’s investigation shows that U.S. officials, across three presidential administrations, intentionally and systematically misled the American public for 18 years and counting. As Daniel Ellsberg, who leaked the Pentagon Papers in 1974, told CNN earlier this week, the Pentagon and Afghanistan Papers revealed the same dynamic: “The presidents and the generals had a pretty realistic view of what they were up against, which they did not want to admit to the American people.”

NEW WIKILEAKS DOCUMENTS EXPOSE PHONY CLAIMS OF 2018 SYRIA CHEMICAL WEAPONS ATTACK

Documents published by WikiLeaks on Saturday confirm that there is significant dissent within the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), the global chemical weapons watchdog, over the doctoring of a public report on the alleged April 7, 2018 chemical weapons attack in Douma, Syria, which reportedly killed 49 people and wounded as many as 650.

The latest round of revelations makes clear that the US-led regime-change operation in Syria, which began in 2011, has been based on a pack of lies. The role of WikiLeaks in exposing these lies demonstrates why the US government has been pursuing WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange so ferociously, along with Washington’s partners in crime such as Britain and Australia.

Is a trap being set for Trump in the Senate trial?

Can 20 U.S. senators withstand the potentially irresistible temptation to reverse the results of the 2016 election and remove a president a number of them openly or privately dislike?

Since Donald Trump announced his intention to run for the White House on June 16, 2015, many of the entrenched elites across the various power centers of Washington and beyond have spent many of their waking hours trying to stop or unseat him.

The political charade of an impeachment “investigation” is but the latest example. But that impeachment charade could harbor the greatest threat to Trump’s presidency.

WHILE EVO’S MAS PARTY REGROUPS, BOLIVIA’S COUP LEADERS ARE EATING EACH OTHER ALIVE

SOURCE: THEGRAYZONE.COM
Humiliating scandals are destroying right-wing leader Luis Fernando Camacho and the right is fracturing as a more militant MAS party readies for an uphill election battle

BY WYATT REED
La Paz, Bolivia – Just one month after ruling elites and right-wing politicians seized power in Bolivia with a military coup, the fragile unity they briefly enjoyed has erupted into a bitter public feud.

Local analysts had predicted that coup leader Luis Fernando Camacho and Pumari could unite the right from the country’s east and west, both indigenous and white or mestizo. They were seen as an insurmountable dream team. That alliance now lies smoldering, with the two presidential frontrunners openly airing their dirty laundry amid a vicious power struggle.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder; if the right continues tearing itself apart, courtesy of its own hubris and stupidity, what, then, is waiting in the wings to take over, with those huge lithium deposits at stake?!?

One of the last things that happened, before Morales was forced to flee the country, was to look at signing a deal with China about lithium mining, and insuring that the of people of Bolivia got some of the money from this process.

The US Pentagon; State Department; and Congress are going to have to think, long and hard, about who it wants to replace the fracturing right-wing, just as China is most probably looking at who it might bring a new deal to Bolivia, who has the potential for staying power.

OR, under the circumstances, is the US going to invade?!?

Right now, with a "Foreign Policy by Dartboard" approach in South and Central America (where, unfortunately, none of the deciders on Team Trump, are actually looking at same dartboard), I would not bet against this, as hysterical a notion it might seem right now.

These lithium deposits may ultimately be worth billions; that ... has been enough for the US government to invade and attempt to "pacify" the indigenous populations, both in Central and South America, and in the Middle East.

SECRET DEEP STATE DEMANDS: THE FBI WANTS CONSUMERS’ CREDIT DATA

SOURCE: SHTFPLAN.COM
Secret Deep State Demands: The FBI Wants Consumers’ Credit Data
Authored by Mac Slavo via SHTFplan.com,

The Federal Bureau of Investigation has secretly demanded access to a whole bunch of consumer credit information and data. Recently revealed documents prove that the FBI wants access to troves of financial information from the nation’s largest credit agencies.

According to a report by Tech Crunch, this is a regular thing for the FBI. The government agency regularly uses these legal powers (known as national security letters) to compel credit giants to turn over non-content information, such as records of purchases and locations, that the agency deems necessary in national security investigations. But these letters have no judicial oversight and are typically filed with a gag order, preventing the recipient from disclosing the demand to anyone else; including the target of the letter.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Forth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, has been getting continually clobbered by these national security letters.

Now, I am a person who loves to look on line for things like clothing, etc., because the customer experience in this country has gone the way of the dodobird, and the dribble glass.

But that this would in any way, make me more interesting to all the alphabet soup agencies who continually monitor this site, I don't know.

And yes, yesterday, I was looking at clothing; I confess, I confess; but do any of you monitoring this site understand how difficult it is for a 70 year old woman to purchase a comfortable pair of slacks which really will look good on her?!?

Sorry for attempting to inject a little levity here ...However, that being said, this is the butt-ugly truth of the business; when one has so much data, it can become absolutely overwhelming, and it is difficult to ferret out what is important, and what is not.

My shopping browsing habits are not anything with which to be concerned; anything the watchers of this site need to be concerned with, is what I say here.

And yes, just to annoy all the people who have been "tasked" to monitor this blog, (probably for having done some incredible screw-up in their job),I am a Christian pacifist activist, who never, ever condones violence, but consistently encourages her country to find ways of achieving its geopolitical objectives through honest, reasoned, hard, good-will negotiations, rather than through wars.

GOOGLE STEERS USERS TO PROPAGANDA ATTACKING SHEN YUN PERFORMING ARTS

Beijing has opened a new front on the internet for its more than a decade-old campaign to shut down a performing arts company whose shows challenge the Chinese regime’s human rights record and cultural identity.

Google search results for the Shen Yun Performing Arts company are steering users toward Chinese regime propaganda. Among the top results are several articles that align with the regime’s talking points or are directly produced by the regime. Other search engines don’t produce these results.

Whether Google is actively seeking to target Shen Yun with the Chinese Communist Party’s viewpoint is not clear. The search engine may itself be manipulated.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF in fact these charges are be true, it is simply yet another demonstration that Google doesn't mind taking anyone's money; let's say they are far less of an American corporation, at this point in their evolution, than a pan-world corporation.

And hey, if the money spends from a client like the Communist Party, they will take the job, no problem; no questions.

HARVEY WEINSTEIN MIRACULOUSLY CURED - ABANDONS WALKER AFTER COURT APPEARANCE

SOURCE: BOING BOING

It’s a Christmas miracle! Disgraced film producer Harvey Weinstein showed up at court last week wearing a comically baggy suit and shuffling unsteadily with a walker. The very next day he was spotted in a New York department store, casually ambling through the aisles without assistance, loving family in tow. Page Six has the photographic evidence.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sometimes looking at the way many of the monied live their lives, one has to wonder if sleaze and hubris just might be components of human DNA for which we just don't quite have a name, or explanation at this point in scientific history.

And that he believed, with every fibre of his being, that none of the paparazzi were going to call him out on this travesty of bad acting, when he shuffled into court with a walker and the worst-fitting clothing he could conjure?!?

This... is both absoflippinglutely amazing; and absolutely true!!

FISA Report Was So Bad That FBI’s Top Lawyer During Russia Probe Felt ‘Distressed’ After Reading It

Former FBI general counsel James Baker said Monday that he felt “distressed” after reading the Justice Department inspector general’s report laying out “significant” errors and omissions in the bureau’s applications to surveil former Trump campaign aide Carter Page.

In an interview on CNN, Baker went further in his critique of the bureau than did FBI Director James Comey, who said Sunday that he believed the FBI was “sloppy” in its efforts to obtain Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants against Page.

Covert Chemical Warfare: 100,000 Deaths a Year from Prescription Drugs

By Jon Rappoport

Countries of the world are literally being assaulted by pharmaceutical companies and their foot-soldier doctors. It’s chemical warfare...

Not even the Nazis and their dearly beloved cartel, the monster IG Farben, dreamed of the day when the citizenry would line up and demand to ingest more and more life-destroying chemicals...

You’ll find the following statements on the FDA’s own site: “Over 2 MILLION serious ADRs [Adverse Drug Events] yearly; 100,000 DEATHS yearly.”

The only thing missing is: “And we, the FDA, said the drugs were safe.”

Is SEC Enforcer Steven Peikin A Goldman Sachs Crony Protecting Corruption?

Ever since the 2016 election, when the DNC super Democrats (delegates) and the Clintons rigged the Democratic Primary against Bernie Sanders, this reporter has spent a lot of time researching the corruption of the Washington, D.C. swamp (that obviously wasn’t drained when Trump was elected).

In fact, as this author has reported, the swamp was filled with Goldman Sachs swamp monsters and alleged fraudsters. Here is yet another example...

Black Antisemitic Terror Blamed on Whites

There are Chabad connections in many of these shootings. Remember Broward?

On December 10, a spectacular hrs-long gun battle took place, most of it at the Jewish JC Kosher market in Jersey City, New Jersey USA. A witness said the shooters came "ready to kill."

Palestinian-American USA Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib, at first tweeted the Kosher Market shooting attack was another case where "white supremacy kills", even though the attackers were quickly identified as black ... the theory being that it is whites who have created the 'killing culture', and can always be blamed even if no whites are involved.

Chabad New Jersey Chief Rabbi Moshe Shapiro, was reported as being in the kosher store when the shooting there began.

Inside Santa Rosa's mile-long tent city amid plans to shelter its residents in FAIRGROUNDS as California struggles under the weight of 130,000 people living on the streets

Officials in Santa Rosa are set to unveil emergency proposals to shelter people in fairgrounds as the city - and the state - struggles with a homeless emergency where more than 130,000 people are living on the streets across California.

In Santa Rosa, around 185 people have set up a mile-long camp along the Joe Rodota Trail, next to Highway 12.

The proposed plan, set to be unveiled on Tuesday, will allow some of those living in the camp and the rest of the 3,000 homeless people in Sonoma County to move into the fairgrounds, The Press Democrat reports.

Leaders in the city, struggling with the biggest homeless camp in its history, are said to have been inspired by how the fairgrounds were used during wildfires and flooding.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

(Sigh) I know that there are many areas where the economy is working brilliantly (for the already monied); but for these homeless numbers to be so astoundingly high, translates into the very hard reality, that the current business model is NOT working all the way up and down the "food chain" of the American economy.

Gigantic Craters at Long Last Pinpointed Decades After US Nuclear Tests in Pacific

Scientists have for the first time registered and mapped the aftermath of underwater nuclear tests from the 1940s and 1950s, as they combed the so-called Bikini Atoll in the Marshall Islands, Popular Mechanics reported citing the research revealed at a 2019 meeting of the American Geophysical Union in San Francisco.

Using advanced sonar, the team of researchers scanned the sea floor for evidence of the first two tests on the atoll, which were conducted as part of Operation Crossroads.
The first test, Able, was a 23 kiloton atomic bomb dropped from a B-29 bomber and set to explode at 1,500 to 2,000 feet.

The explosion was 50 percent more powerful than the bomb dropped on Hiroshima. Able sank five warships but according to scientists there is no distinct sign of the test on the seabed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I wish that countries on this planet did a lot better with honorable, hard-won negotiations, as away of resolving geopolitical tensions, rather than even contemplating the use of WMDs.

Unfortunately, the possibility of this happening during our lifetimes has just had a deafening, upward thrust, courtesy of the US, by leaving the Test Ban Treaty with Russia in August of this year.U.S. Withdraws From Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty with Russia

Graphic Video: US Resource Officer Fired for Bodyslamming Middle School Boy

An investigation has been launched into a school resource officer following the emergence of surveillance footage which showed the man dragging and slamming a child under the age of 12 to the ground multiple times.

A Vance County Sheriff’s deputy has been fired and an investigation has been launched by the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation after the officer appeared to literally take a student’s disciplinary matters into his own hands earlier this month.

The footage, which was released publicly on Friday, showed the unidentified resource officer leisurely strolling down the hallway at Vance County Middle School with the student by his side. Seemingly unprovoked, the deputy then picks the boy up and slams him to the ground twice before dragging him down the hallway.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think that the larger question here which must be answered, is why do such events keep happening in US public schools?!?

Is there a collective "screw loose" in the brains of Resource Officers, that it causes them to snap, and sometimes create extensive injuries for the kids in these schools?!?

Because we are not talking about an "isolated incident"; we are talking about way too many of these events, happening in our public schools, and this violent behaviour on the part of these officers has to stop, and right now.

Bashar Assad Reveals How US Forces Can Be Driven From Syria's Oil Fields

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has explained in an interview with Chinese broadcaster Phoenix Television that two goals must be achieved in order to make American military forces finally withdraw from the country, where they have been stationed without the government's authorisation or a UN mandate.

Firstly, all terrorist groups on Syrian territory must be eradicated, as the fight against them is being used by the US government as a pretext to keep its forces present in the Arab Republic, Assad stated. The Syrian president said that the second step would involve convincing Washington's allies among the local population, presumably referring to Kurds, to unite their forces with the Syrian government instead of the foreign forces.

"These groups must be persuaded, one way or another and particularly through dialogue, that it is in all our interests in Syria that they embrace the homeland and join the Syrian state’s efforts to liberate all its territories", Assad said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am betting that this guy plays chess, and rather well.

He appears to be not in any hurry to "beat the clock", but has, along with his advisors, come to a very clear realization of what has to happen, in order to get the rest of his country back.

It is almost as though he realizes... that Afghanistan may well prove to be the US's 21st century Vietnam war.

"As part of your rehabilitation, it's crucial that you admit you have a problem - you are hijacking the Intelligence Committee for political purposes while excusing and covering up intelligence agency abuses." -Devin Nunes to Adam Schiff

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) has written perhaps the most brutal 'I told ya so' letter in recent memory to Adam Schiff, his Democratic rival and chairman of the House Intelligence Committee.

After last week's Inspector General report on FBI FISA abuse revealed Schiff was peddling lies to the American public in a February, 2018 'counter-memo' to Nunes's now-proven claims, Schiff passed the buck - telling Fox News host Chris Wallace on Sunday that he was 'unaware' of certain things uncovered by the IG - while failing to admit he's been dead wrong on an ongoing basis about a number of things.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unless Schiff lives in a bullet-proof "safe place" bubble, he may well be surprised by other Democrats, stepping up against him in the next election, after this vile business is concluded.

Even though the 28th Congressional District is very clearly Democratic Party Centric in their voting, and with Schiff coming up for re-election in 2020, some of these people -with, let's say, a little of their consciences left in tact- may well want someone on the ticket who might just be a tiny bit more honest than Schiff has shown himself to be, or at least have the gift of appearing more so.

And one has to wonder; to what degree has this district been gerrymandered, to make it look as though little "nibbles" have been quietly eaten away, to cause the demographic to be so overwhelmingly "Blue-centric?!?

Well, a quick glance at a map of Schiff's district certainly tells the story:

the 28th Congressional District

Is it just me, or does that map look like "nibbles" have been taken out, to insure that the District will vote nearly 100% Democratic?!?

Australian commando Kevin Frost, who raised Afghanistan war crime allegations, found dead

A "fearless" Australian commando who went public three years ago about his involvement in an alleged war crime in Afghanistan has died.

Sergeant Kevin Frost is among hundreds of former and serving Defence Force personnel who have taken their own lives in the past two decades.

Last week the 45-year-old went missing near his Busselton home, and over the weekend his family confirmed he had been found but had "tragically passed away".

Friends have paid tribute online to their mate "Frosty", who they say was a "fearless", "proud" and "witty" man.

His death comes as Prime Minister Scott Morrison says his Government will consider calling a royal commission next year into veterans' suicides.

Sabra and Chatila taught me all massacres become 'alleged massacres' if we don't pay attention

Not that long ago, I spotted a report in an American newspaper which referred to the “alleged Sabra and Chatila massacre”. Up to 1,700 civilians, most of them Palestinians, were slaughtered in the two refugee camps in Beirut in just three days in 1982.

They were killed by Israel’s Lebanese Christian Phalangist allies. The Israelis watched – and did nothing. Even Israel’s own commission of enquiry admitted this. With two colleagues, I entered the camps before the murderers had finished committing their war crimes. I hid with an American reporter in the back yard of a hut beside a newly executed young woman. I climbed over heaps of corpses. That evening, I burned my clothes because they smelled of decomposition. Photographs and film of the dead were later broadcast around the world.

New WikiLeaks Bombshell: 20 Inspectors Dissent From Syria Chemical Attack Narrative

Late Saturday WikiLeaks released more documents which contradict the US narrative on Assad's use of chemical weapons, specifically related to the April 7, 2018 Douma incident, which resulted in a major US and allied tomahawk missile and air strike campaign on dozens of targets in Damascus.

The leaked documents, including internal emails of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) — which investigated the Douma site — reveal mass dissent within the UN-authorized chemical weapons watchdog organization's ranks over conclusions previously reached by the international body which pointed to Syrian government culpability. It's part of a growing avalanche of dissent memos and documents casting the West's push for war in Syria in doubt (which had resulted in two major US and allied attacks on Syria).

Scot free? FBI declares it has no records of discipline against lawyers in Russia FISA case

Just days after it was sharply rebuked for its conduct in the Russia collusion investigation, the FBI is declaring it possesses no records of any disciplinary action taken against lawyers who pursued a deeply flawed Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant targeting the Trump campaign.

The declaration was made Thursday in a U.S. District Court motion seeking to dismiss an open records lawsuit brought by the Southeastern Legal Foundation, a public interest law firm that frequently argues cases before the Supreme Court.

The foundation’s Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit sought any records from the FBI of actions taken with or communicated to the FISA judges or other disciplinary bodies against lawyers involved in the surveillance warrant that was obtained against Trump adviser Carter Page in October 2016 and renewed three times in 2017.

Teacher Unions Destroy School Accountability

Authored by Robert Fellner via The Mises Institute,

Just months after successfully threatening an illegal strike to obtain a modest salary raise, members of the Clark County, Nevada, teachers union, the Clark County Education Association (CCEA), are going to have to give a big chunk of that back, thanks to a pair of recent rate hikes that will cost the average teacher nearly $1,000 a year.

The union claims that higher taxes and increased spending are the only way to improve Nevada’s public schools but neglects to explain why the near tripling in spending that has already occurred since 1960 has failed to improve student performance.

Greece To Help Tripoli 'Block Turkish Ships' As Libyan War Spills Into Mediterranean

The years-long war for post-Gaddafi Libya now threatens to spill over into the Mediterranean as Turkey and Greece line up on either side of the conflict. Each side is now threatening the others' allied ships in southern waters after a controversial maritime deal expanded Turkish claims off Libya's coast.

On Thursday Benghazi-based General Kalifa Haftar declared his Libyan National Army has begun its "final decisive battle" to wrest control of the capital of Tripoli from the UN-backed Government of National Accord (GNA).

"Zero hour has come for the broad and total assault expected by every free and honest Libyan," Haftar said in a televised address, reports Al Jazeera. "Today, we announce the decisive battle and the advancement towards the heart of the capital to set it free... advance now our heroes." Beginning eight months ago Haftar launched a siege of Tripoli, which has been stalled in recent months.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This could spin out of control horrifically rapidly; prayers for all the innocent Libyans impacted, or who will be impacted.

Glyphosate and Roundup Proven to Disrupt Gut Microbiome by Inhibiting Shikimate Pathway

Fatty liver disease and death of liver tissue were also confirmed in rats fed regulatory permitted and thus presumed safe doses of the weedkiller

The primary mechanism of how glyphosate herbicides kill plants is by inhibiting an enzyme called EPSPS, which is part of a biochemical pathway known as the shikimate pathway. The shikimate pathway is responsible for the synthesis of certain aromatic amino acids that are vital for the production of proteins, the building blocks of life. Thus when the synthesis of the aromatic amino acids is blocked by glyphosate inhibition of EPSPS, the plant dies.

Trump Wants Criticism of Israel Equated with Anti-Semitism

Trump wants anti-Semitism redefined. An executive order perhaps already signed is all about stifling legitimate criticism of Israel.

It’s about wanting the Jewish state absolved of occupation, colonialism, and apartheid crimes against humanity.

Trump wants anti-Semitism redefined. An executive order perhaps already signed is all about stifling legitimate criticism of Israel.

It’s about wanting the Jewish state absolved of occupation, colonialism, and apartheid crimes against humanity.

“Officials say the order will broaden the federal government’s definition of anti-Semitism and instruct it to be used in enforcing laws against discrimination on college campuses.”

Henceforth, will advocacy for Palestinian rights and wanting Israel held accountable for denying them be criminalized — and not just on college campuses.

According to the NYT, Trump’s order “will effectively interpret Judaism as a race or nationality, not just a religion.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is engineered to have the most chilling effect possible on free speech, when it comes to criticizing Israel, and must be brought to the Supreme Court as case they will actually hear; additionally, it will cement home the fact to the Palestinian and Arab communities, that the US government cannot possibly be relied upon a an honest broker of peace treaties in the region.

Pentagon chiefs say US troops to stay in Syria for years

Barely two months after US President Donald Trump’s demagogic announcement that he was pulling US troops out of northeastern Syria to fulfill his campaign promise to bring a halt to Washington’s “endless wars,” the senior civilian and uniformed Pentagon chiefs told a House panel Wednesday that there is no foreseeable end to the American presence there.

Defense Secretary Mark Esper and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Mark Milley maintained in their testimony to the House Armed Services Committee that the US military was staying in Syria to assure the “enduring defeat” of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), and that the fulfillment of that goal is likely years away.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, Defense Secretary Esper and Joint Chiefs Staff Milley: But has Russia's President Putin received the memo, that this is continued, endless occupation of Syria, is coming?!?

Clashes erupt in Delhi over citizenship law; Japan PM cancels visit

Violent clashes erupted in Delhi between police and hundreds of university students on Friday over the enactment of a new citizenship law that critics say undermines India’s secular foundations.

Police fired tear gas and used baton charges to disperse scores of students demonstrating at Jamia Millia Islamia university in the heart of Delhi over the law.

Protesters attacked cars in the capital, and several people were injured and taken to hospital.

Zakir Riyaz, a PhD student in social work, said the new law made a mockery of India’s religious openness.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, now it's "open season" on India's Muslims, in terms of denying citizenship to them?!?

What else will be denied them, beside the right to vote, under this law; will they not be able to attend the finest schools in India because of this?!? Will they have to present a pass, every time they work?!? Are there going to now be some jobs forbidden to them?!? And will housing become completely segregated by faith, driving Muslim families out of the marketplace?!?

I would politely suggest to the Indian government, that going the way of Israel's apartheid, is not going to help empower India in a positive, and moral direction.

That huge Thumpa-thumpa we are all hearing right now... is the sound of Mahatma Gandhi, whirling in his grave, at warp-drive speed.

Pompeo warns Iran of 'decisive response' if harm in Iraq

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Friday warned Iran of a "decisive" response if US interests are harmed in Iraq, after a series of rocket attacks on bases.

"We must... use this opportunity to remind Iran's leaders that any attacks by them, or their proxies of any identity, that harm Americans, our allies or our interests will be answered with a decisive US response," Pompeo said in a statement.

"Iran must respect the sovereignty of its neighbors and immediately cease its provision of lethal aid and support to third parties in Iraq and throughout the region," he said.

The United States has expressed mounting concern about the flurry of attacks on Iraqi bases used by US troops, several of which it has blamed on Iranian-backed Shiite paramilitary groups.

Two rocket attacks this week targeted a compound near Baghdad International Airport, which houses US troops, with an incident Monday wounding Iraqi troops.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are so many possibilities for a false flag before the end of the year, that one hardly knows were to start; that being said, however, Iraq is certainly one of those places where a false flag against an American entity could be done, blamed on Iran, and off we would be going.

However, as someone who doesn't walk in the halls of power in DC, I must shudder at what appears a huge "gap of awareness" which makes itself known, when Secretary State Pompeo, hauls off with threats like these.

Has he not been made privy to the following article ( and the article was written in English; you didn't even have to read Russian to read i)t, and here is what it said:

Iran won't be alone, if the US attacks it. The statement was made by Zamir Kabulov, the Foreign Ministry’s special envoy for Asian countries including Iran, said at a Russian-Iranian policy forum in Moscow.

And I am stunned here; if I know about it as just a plain-Jane citizen of this country, why do you, Secretary Pompeo, apparently not know that this was said publicly by a Russian official?!?

And sir, were I you, I would take Kabulov at his word; and at the moment he made this declaration he was channeling Putin.

It has been said, that some people this close to Putin don't even FART without asking his permission.

Mr. Secretary, I am imploring you as politely as I can, please do not go to war with Iran, because it will, most likely mean war with Russia.

Please do not "get drunk on the cork" of any "victory is ours" scenarios,
being "curated" for you by any of our governmental agencies at the moment; the track record of the US government's having signed off on these concepts,
for at least the past 20 years, stinks with the wretched, fetid odor of a badly conjured, dart-board foreign policy, where the people who created these scenarios were pathologically incapable of seeing them through to their logical conclusion.

Israel bars Gaza’s Christians from visiting Bethlehem, Jerusalem at Christmas

Christians in the Gaza Strip will not be allowed to visit holy cities such as Bethlehem and Jerusalem to celebrate Christmas this year, Israeli authorities said on Thursday.

Gazan Christians will be granted permits to travel abroad but none will be allowed to go to Israel and the occupied West Bank, home to many sites holy to Christians, a spokeswoman for Israel’s military liaison to the Palestinians said.

Israel tightly restricts movements out of the Gaza Strip, territory controlled by militant group Hamas.

The spokeswoman said that following “security orders,” Gazans would be allowed to travel abroad via Israel’s Allenby Bridge border crossing with Jordan but not to visit cities in Israel or the West Bank.

Gaza has only around 1,000 Christians - most of them Greek Orthodox - among a population of 2 million in the narrow coastal strip.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to speculate if this is telegraphing that the IDF is planning some sort of "special mission" against these three key cities which are so important to the Christian faith and narrative, in order to create false flags in them, saying that it was the Palestinians who did such a thing, to get Christians generally annoyed with Palestinians as the IDF goes into Gaza with an alleged "countermeasure", to justify killing more innocent Palestinians.

Cheney warns US against Middle East pullout as even Washington Post digs up proof his War on Terror was ‘UNWINNABLE’

Ultra-hawk former vice president Dick Cheney has reprised his role as head cheerleader for the never-ending war he kicked off nearly 20 years ago. But has the prodigious conflict dragged on too long even for the war-happy MSM?

Cheney warned a rapt Dubai audience that “American disengagement” from the Middle East would play right into the hands of Iran and Russia, serving up “power voids” on a silver platter to any US rival willing to take the initiative. “Russia is always on standby to fill power voids,” he insisted on Monday, framing the Trump administration's move to wind down its military presence in northeastern Syria as a national embarrassment sure to set the stage for a resurgence of the Evil Empire coupled with a nuclear Iran.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Can this war criminal, with a name so vile it can barely be spoken in the homes of decent people, not possibly, please, shut up, and go home?!?

Continuing to lie to the world, about what "has been accomplished" in places like Iraq and Afghanistan, only makes the excrement of those lies flow higher and deeper, until, sir it has taken over the entirety of the ventilation system with a vengeance, and starts squirting it, gleefully, back out over those designer clothing you love to wear.

The cold, hard, and butt-ugly fact of the matter, sir, is that history will not treat you, or President Bush, or your and his minions, with much kindness.

History's mirror will see you, and the people who surrounded you professionally, precisely for what you are; soulless monsters, hell-bent on war, to drive the military industrial complex's revenues to incredibly high profits, in the process of destroying those countries, the natural resources of which, you and your team coveted greatly.

Poland's Ruling Elite Want to Hand Over 30% of Residential Property to 'Holocaust' Survivors

For the 1.2 million Polish-Jews and their descendants living in Israel alone, there is a growing elite consensus that they are entitled to parts of Poland that they claim their ancestors used to own. Before WW2, Jews owned the most valuable real estate in the centers of major cities and towns, while Poles were concentrated in rural parts. Warsaw was 30% Jewish ... Today, international Jewry has abandoned communism for world capitalism, and is using Donald Trump's America to "strangle" us. The weapon of choice is S447 (Justice for Uncompensated Survivors Today ... If this law is put into practice, approximately 30% of Warsaw homeowners will be forced to pay "rent" to random Jews claiming to be Holocaust survivors or their descendants in New York City and Tel Aviv.

Wikileaks Document Shows John Podesta’s Emails Were Hacked in 2016 By the Ukraine, Not Russia – Creepy Podesta Brothers and Hillary Connected to Largest Russian Bank

Evidence shows that the Podesta emails were hacked by someone in the Ukraine, not Russia. This could be because the creepy Podesta Brothers represented and lobbied for Russia’s largest bank.

An email has been uncovered that was part of the Podesta email dump that was released by WikiLeaks shortly before the 2016 election.

The email shows that John Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s Campaign Chairman, was hacked by someone in the Ukraine — according to the location stamp.

Interesting that this is the case with the Ukraine now so much in the news. This effort to obtain Podesta’s emails by someone in the Ukraine may be because the creepy Podesta brothers were representing and lobbying for Russia’s largest bank, Sberbank.

Hillary was closely tied to the Russians through this bank:

On Thursday, lawyers representing convicted 26-year-old Boston Marathon bomber, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, will go before a three-judge federal appellate panel to argue that their client did not receive a fair trial in 2015. They will also ask that the death penalty in this case be rescinded.

Tsarnaev's new legal team contends that jury selection was tainted by anti-Tsarnaev bias that was hidden from the U.S. District judge. They will further argue to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 1st Circuit that Judge George O'Toole should not have allowed the trial to be held in Boston, since the city was widely viewed as a "victim" in the attack.

The Most Significant Afghanistan Papers Revelation Is How Difficult They Were to Make Public

The Washington Post has published clear, undeniable evidence that US government officials have been lying to the public about the war in Afghanistan, a shocking revelation for anyone who has done no research whatsoever into the history of US interventionism.

In all seriousness it was a very good and newsworthy publication, and those who did the heavy lifting bringing the Afghanistan Papers into public awareness deserve full credit. The frank comments of US military officials plainly stating that from the very beginning this was an unwinnable conflict, initiated in a region nobody understood, without anyone being able to so much as articulate what victory would even look like, make up an extremely important piece of information that is in conflict with everything the public has been told about this war by their government.

MÉXICO HAS DISCOVERED THE LARGEST LITHIUM RESERVE IN THE WORLD

TRANSLATED FROM FORBES MÉXICO
Mexico tops the list of the largest lithium deposit in the world , according to the report ranking made by Mining Technology.

The report indicates that the mine of this element located in Sonora is the largest element deposit with proven and probable reserves of 243.8 million tons.

In recent days, members of the Sonora government have met with the Chinese capital mining company Ganfeng Lithium, who are looking to settle and invest in the region.

"They have more than seven thousand employees and are very interested in coming in January, they will come on a commercial mission to Sonora, because they are interested in being here, seeing the possibility of installing and setting up a battery factory," said Jorge Vidal, secretary Sonoran economy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would completely dismayed, if the scientific elements in this government didn't know about this huge deposit in Sonora, and that the Mexican government is now negotiating with China.

But what if the American government knew full well that this was about to happen, and had a plan to make such a Mexican/Chinese deal....a moot point?!?

Let's look at a map, in terms of the border of Mexico (Sonora, to be exact)
Border; Arizona, United States; Sonora, Mexico

Notice the flurry of headlines we have seen in the past couple of months, about cartel gang violence in Mexico, "spilling over" into the the US?!?
The Sinaloa
Cartel

Mexico: Organized Crime and Drug
Trafficking Organizations

Mexico ambush: How a US Mormon family ended up deadThe article goes on to state that "In time, the Mormon community south of the border grew in number and wealth.

They purchased land in the states of Sonora and Chihuahua and set up ranches and other colonias. They thrived as pecan farmers, grew wheat, planted apple and pomegranate orchards and produced honey to sell at farmers' markets. Although many returned to the southern United States after the Mexican Revolution, by the 1950s the Mormon enclaves had populations in the high hundreds or low thousands."

And notice, right after that, how President Trump was attempting to get Mexican drug cartels designated as "terrorists" ?!?

President Trump wants to label Mexican cartesl as "terrorist organizations"

Even though the Mexican government is bitterly opposed to such a measure, what happens if the US military goes in and "Controls" Sinaloa?!? Would this not mean that the US government also controlled the flow of lithium, in terms of practical production, and insuring that this mineral, would only be sold in the US dollar?!?

The previous moves by the US government remind us of the reality, that President Trump has US soldiers "guarding Syria's oil, and is at least considering having the refining by a US-trusted company"?!?!?

Trump OKs wider Syria oil mission, raising legal questions.

So what about Bolivia's "coup coup ka CHOO!" last month, when President Evo was overthrown, and found sanctuary in Mexico, for at least a while?!? What was his "crime" leading up to the ultra-right Putsch which took power here?

Bolivian Coup Comes Less Than a Week After Morales Stopped Multinational Firm's Lithium Deal

And another salient comment on bolivia's coup:

After Morales Ousted in Coup, the Lithium Question Looms Large in BoliviaThe story goes on to state:

"Last year, Germany’s ACI Systems agreed to a deal with Bolivia. After protests from residents in the Salar de Uyuni region, Morales canceled that deal on November 4, 2019.

Chinese firms—such as TBEA Group and China Machinery Engineering—made a deal with YLB. It was being said that China’s Tianqi Lithium Group, which operates in Argentina, was going to make a deal with YLB. Both Chinese investment and the Bolivian lithium company were experimenting with new ways to both mine the lithium and to share the profits of the lithium. The idea that there might be a new social compact for the lithium was unacceptable to the main transnational mining companies.

Tesla (United States) and Pure Energy Minerals (Canada) both showed great interest in having a direct stake in Bolivian lithium. But they could not make a deal that would take into consideration the parameters set by the Morales government. Morales himself was a direct impediment to the takeover of the lithium fields by the non-Chinese transnational firms. He had to go.

After the coup, Tesla’s stock rose astronomically.

I do not know when President Trump is likely to characterize Mexican cartels (particularly in Sinaloa) in Sinaloa and beyond, as "terrorists; that gives President Trump gets a great more leeway in terms of how he uses our military; but I would suggest that an executive order, putting the wheels in motion for such an action, will not be long in coming.

And in terms of Mexico's "sovereignty"?!?

President Trump will give Mexico's President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, precisely the same consideration as he did with Syria's President, Bashar Al Assad, when he both trained, funded, and provided weapons to Jihadis, whose task it was, to regime-change Syria, and take a great deal of their oil.

Oh, and if this isn't disturbing enough, we find this little "crumpet" of news in blacklistednews.com: US Army will fund rare earths-processing

So I have to wonder; will the first "funding" go soon-to-be US-controlled lithium mines in Mexico?!?

I will nearly bet you one thing; the "timing" of this announcement, is not accidental.

The Criminalization of Masculinity

For half a century, conservatives have been putting their readers to sleep with denunciations of the sexual revolution as a kind of anarchic free-for-all where men’s sexual impulses are gratified at the expense of women’s long-term well-being. But, as I have explained at length elsewhere, the current hook-up scene is no chaos of random coupling; it is a Darwinian competition between women for the attentions of a relatively small number of men. This mating system’s predictable output—possibly its intended output—is a large number of disappointed young women ripe for a message of resentment and revenge upon the opposite sex.
