Roberts: More Jobs Fictions

According to today’s payroll jobs report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the economy created 200,000 new jobs in August. These jobs, assuming that they exist, are reported to be in low paid domestic service jobs such as transporting and selling goods, ambulatory health care services, and waiting tables and mixing drinks. There are none in manufacturing or in the “high tech clean fingernail” jobs that neoliberal economists promised the American work force in exchange for letting the industrial and manufacturing jobs go to Asia.

The great mystery is how these jobs can possibly have been created when the Bureau of Labor Statistics Household Data (Table A) reports that the civilian labor force declined by 469,000 in August from the level in the previous month (July); that employment declined by 423,000 in August from the previous month; and that 692,000 Americans dropped out of the labor force in August. Year over year (August 2017-August 2018) 1,531,000 Americans have left the labor force. This is inconsistent with a booming economy at full employment.

Is There A Secret USA Spy Base & EMF Antenna For Submarines At Sea In Australia?

By Catherine J. Frompovich

What in the world is the U.S. doing in the central part of the Australian continent with a deep underground spy base known as Pine Gap, a top secret base financed entirely by the U.S. government (taxpayers’ dollars or “black operations budgets”)? It’s officially known as the Joint Defense Space Research Facility, and is not far from Alice Springs in the Northern Territory...

YouTube Shuts Down All Syrian State Channels As Idlib Assault Begins

Syrian state YouTube channels have been shut down this morning just as the Syrian Army's ground offensive has officially begun.

This includes the following now terminated Syrian state and pro-government channels: Syrian Presidency, Syria MoD (Ministry of Defense), SANA, and Sama TV. This follows YouTube reportedly closing Syria's Ortas News last week.

Syrian state YouTube channels ‘terminated’ amid fears of looming false-flag chem attack

A number of Syrian state and media-linked YouTube accounts have gone dark, as the battle for Idlib looms amid Russia’s warnings of an imminent false-flag chemical attack and Western preparations for retaliatory strikes.

On Saturday afternoon, the channels belonging to the Syrian presidency, the country’s Ministry of Defense, and SANA news all showed a message saying: “This account has been terminated due to a legal complaint,” or “This account has been terminated for a violation of YouTube's Terms of Service.”

Webmaster's Commentary:

Skripals – The Mystery Deepens

The time that “Boshirov and Petrov” were allegedly in Salisbury carrying out the attack is all entirely within the period the Skripals were universally reported to have left their home with their mobile phones switched off.

A key hole in the British government’s account of the Salisbury poisonings has been plugged – the lack of any actual suspects. And it has been plugged in a way that appears broadly convincing – these two men do appear to have traveled to Salisbury at the right time to have been involved.

But what has not been established is the men’s identity and that they are agents of the Russian state, or just what they did in Salisbury. If they are Russian agents, they are remarkably amateur assassins. Meanwhile the new evidence throws the previously reported timelines into confusion – and demolishes the theories put out by “experts” as to why the Novichok dose was not fatal.

Iranian Bots and the Facebook Stasi: Manufacturing Consent for the Endless War

If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. The American Empire doesn’t handle failure well, and their repeated failures to oust Syrian president Bashar al-Assad have driven them into a frenzy where good judgment and logic are a thing of the past. Russian military intelligence predicts a false-flag chemical attack in Idlib which will be pinned on the Assad regime and used to justify “retaliation” orders of magnitude greater than April’s Tomahawk tantrum. This time, if the words of the Wicked Witch of the UN are any indication, Iran and Russia will also be blamed. While the US has mostly abandoned hope for regime change in Syria, it will not look a gift horse in the mouth, and is gathering aircraft carriers and bombers to the region while pumping out tear-jerking propaganda about Idlib residents fearing for their lives. If the false flag fails, they can always send those bombers to Iran...

BBC accused of lying in its anti-Corbyn campaign

The BBC has been accused of lying to its audience in its ongoing campaign to discredit the Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.

Listeners of its early morning Radio 4 programme woke up to presenter John Humphrys’ speaking about the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) definition of anti-Semitism, which is at the centre of the row within the Labour Party.

Humphrey’s reportedly said that “almost every country in the world has adopted the IHRA definition and examples of anti-Semitism.” His remark was picked up by listeners and was denounced as another one of “BBC fiction”.

Listeners rushed to correct the BBC on social media to point out that of the 195 countries in the world only 31 have adopted the IHRA definition of anti-Semitism, citing the Jewish Chronicle as their source. Of those only six are said to have endorsed and adopted it fully with all the examples.

Russophobia Digest Part 8: Skripal claims open floodgates, and Pearl Harbour compared to tweeting

The Institute for Strategic Research of the French Defense Ministry (IRSEM) and The Centre for Analysis, Planning and Strategy (CAPS), published a joint paper on the spread of disinformation and how to combat it this week. Apart from their links to the French Foreign Ministry, both are completely impartial observers.

Referring to Russian outlets RT and Sputnik (you saw that coming didn't you) the Russophobic think-tanks concluded that “It is necessary not to grant [these organizations] accreditation and not to invite them to press conferences for journalists.” The unsaid part of that reads something like: it's not necessary because they're only Russian, and sometimes they say things we don't like.

Alleged Suspects in Skripal Case Traveled to Geneva Before Poisoning - Reports

British intelligence agencies, investigating a series of trips made by two Russian suspects in the March nerve agent attack on former Russian intelligence officer Sergei Skripal and his daughter in Salisbury, have determined that Ruslan Boshirov and Alexander Petrov traveled to Geneva at least six times ahead of their alleged attempt to assassinate Sergei Skripal, The Telegraph wrote.

Flight ticket details obtained by the newspaper show that the two booked nine separate flights to and from the Swiss city between November of 2017 and February this year, and British investigators believe that establishing the person or persons they met in Geneva is “absolutely key to the ongoing investigation."

According to The Telegraph story, Boshirov and Petrov are believed to have also visited Paris, Amsterdam and Bergamo on Aeroflot flights, also traveling with Air France and KLM.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I want to know what their occupations were, because if they were travel consultants, then the multiple trips are totally innocent.

Professor who acted as a 'link between Donald Trump's presidential campaign and the Kremlin' is 'missing and may be dead', court documents reveal

A mysterious academic who allegedly acted as a link between Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and the Kremlin is ‘missing and may be dead’, according to court papers.

Joseph Mifsud, 57, became embroiled in scandal after he was said to have offered ‘dirt’ about the Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton to a Republican aide at a London hotel.

The Maltese professor, based at the University of Stirling in Scotland until last year, has previously denied suggestions that he was a Russian agent saying: ‘Secret agent! I never got a penny from the Russians. My conscience is clean.’

"I was blocked for 24 hours because I have published a photo, made in Donetsk, capturing the moment when Alexander Zakharchenko was awarding me with the order of friendship. Facebook appealed to the fact that this was allegedly a photo of a terrorist organization," Maurer told Sputnik.

Flashback: The ferocity and failure of America’s sanctions apparatus

At the beginning of World War I, Britain set up a blockade designed, according to one of its architects, Winston Churchill, to "starve the whole population of Germany - men, women and children, old and young, wounded and sound - into submission." ... Not until five months after the armistice did the Allies allow Germany to import food - not out of concern for the ongoing death and suffering, but out of fear that desperate Germans would follow the Russians into Bolshevism. By the time it was lifted, the peacetime blockade had killed about a quarter of a million people, including many children who either starved or died from diseases associated with malnutrition.

Ohakea(NZ) residents have blood tested for PFAS compounds

After drinking contaminated water at his farm shed for 40 years Ohakea farmer Andy Russell wants to know how much toxic substance from firefighting foam is in his blood.
He's one of at least 13 people who live or work around the ?hakea Airforce Base who have asked to have their blood tested for the presence of the per or poly fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) that have been in firefighting foam used at the base.
Russell had his blood test on September 3, and said the results are six weeks away. He's not sure what kind of test the Health Ministry will use, and said the toxicity of the substances is still relatively unknown.

Other news about PFAS is that the New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF) knew there was some contamination as early as 2015, but didn't tell residents until December 2017.

That didn't surprise Russell.

TERRORISTS & WHITE HELMETS MET IN IDLIB TO PREP FOR FINAL STAGE FALSE FLAG CHEM ATTACK – RUSSIAN MOD

The Russian military has obtained “irrefutable” data that terrorist groups, including Jabhat an-Nusra, and the infamous White Helmets met in Idlib province on Sunday, according to the ministry’s spokesperson Igor Konashenkov.
The militants plotted the final scenarios for the chemical attacks that the Syrian army are expected to make in the cities of Jisr ash-Shugur, Serakab, Taftanaz and Sarmin, the Russian military revealed.

“Full readiness of all participants involved in the staging of the provocations is be ensured by the evening of September 8,”Konashenkov stated. He added that the terrorists are to receive a “special” signal from some “foreign friends of Syrian revolution” to launch the operation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, folks, today's date... is 8 September, and I would imagine that such a false flag is now imminent, either for tomorrow, insuring its maximum US presstitute coverage into next week, as the "justification" for a US attack, or shortly thereafter.

And when I am more inclined to believe the credibility of a foreign news outlet in English than I am the presstitutes and waresspondents here in the US's alleged "media", it is because I have been lied to too many times by the US media to find it at all credible, except occasionally for the weather or sports events' outcomes.

US RECALLS DIPLOMATS FROM EL SALVADOR, PANAMA & DOMINICAN REPUBLIC OVER REJECTION OF TAIWAN

The recent recognition of Beijing’s One China policy by three Latin American countries has prompted the US to recall its ambassadors from the Dominican Republic, El Salvador and Panama.
Dominican Republic Ambassador Robin Bernstein, US Ambassador to El Salvador Jean Manes, and Charge d’Affaires in Panama Roxanne Cabral were all recalled “for consultations related to recent decisions to no longer recognize Taiwan,”the State Department said.

The US will now discuss ways in which it “can support strong, independent, democratic institutions and economies throughout Central America and the Caribbean,” after the countries’ governments switched their allegiance from Taipei to Beijing.

Feds Charge a Russian With Hack of 80 Million JP Morgan Customers

The Department of Justice announced the indictment of a Russian citizen. He is the fifth man to be charged for targeting several US financial institutions between 2012 and 2015.

The Department of Justice announced the indictment and extradition of a Russian hacker accused of being part of the group who stole around 80 million customers data from JP Morgan Chase in 2014.

On Friday, the feds announced the indictment of Andrei Tyurin, 35. Tyurin was extradited from Georgia and arrived in New York City on Friday, according to the authorities.

“Tyurin’s alleged hacking activities were so prolific, they lay claim to the largest theft of U.S. customer data from a single financial institution in history, accounting for a staggering 80 million-plus victims,” Manhattan U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman said in a statement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The timing of these indictments, for events which allegedly happened in 2012, 2014, and 2015, is just too cute.

What the Feds are most probably going to do, is have the guys cop plea deals, so that they can be "turned" so that they can be doing this hacking on behalf of the Federal Government.

But the announcement on the Friday before a weekend after which the US military may well be engaging with both the Syrian and Russian military in Syria?!?

More Russian demonization ahead of this military conflict, is what its timing of these indictments is all about, unfortunately.

US MILITARY PREPARING FOR "OPTIONS" IN SYRIA

Events are moving rapidly in Syria as Russian jets pound insurgent positions in Idlib Province and as the Syrian Army readies an imminent ground invasion which Damascus has described as coming in a "phased" approach.

The White House responded to Syria and its allies initiating the bombing campaign by saying the US would respond “swiftly and vigorously” should chemical weapons be used, and a day ago claimed there's “lots of evidence” chemical weapons are being prepared by the Syrian forces, claiming to have intelligence of such activities.

And now America's top general has confirmed the Pentagon is drawing up military options to attack Syria and is in close discussion with the White House over the plans. Marine General Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff told reporters on Saturday during a trip to India, according to Reuters:

Webmaster's Commentary:

PENTAGON DESIGNING ‘GLIDE BREAKER’ INTERCEPTOR TO HIT ENEMY HYPERSONIC MISSILES – MEDIA

The Pentagon’s DARP agency has started to develop a hard-kill interceptor capable of hitting incoming hypersonic projectiles. The move follows news of Russia’s success in building top-class high-speed weapons.
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has launched a high-tech project to develop an interceptor to shoot down enemy hypersonic missiles, the Drive reported.

In September, DARPA displayed concept art of the project, named 'Glide Breaker', which depicted features of a hard-kill, kinetic interceptor that is capable of engaging unpowered, high-speed vehicles, the Drive said. The agency’s Tactical Technology Office had previously hosted a gathering to explain the project and its requirements in July 2018, according to the media outlet.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sounds great, but why are DARPA and our weapons manufacturers still trying to play "catch up" with this technology, rather than being ahead of the curve here?!/

That... is the problem.

IRAQ CLOSES ITS BIGGEST PORT DUE TO PROTESTS

The Iraqi authorities kept the country’s main port closed on Friday due to demonstrations calling for the improvement of basic infrastructure in the city, news agencies have reported. The main gates of Umm Qasr port remained closed all day on Thursday and Friday, said Anadolu, which pointed out that re-opening the port is subject to improved security conditions.

Umm Qasr is 60 km south of Basra. It is the main port for Iraqi imports of grain, vegetable oil and sugar shipments that feed the country. Iraq is more or less dependent on imported food.

Basra has been witnessing widespread protests since 9 July. They escalated this week after the death of 11 protesters, according to the High Commission for Human Rights, an organisation affiliated to the Iraqi parliament.

Iraqis have been protesting against corruption and the dilapidation of basic infrastructure due to which they suffer from serious water contamination and severe electricity shortages.

I Know Who the “Senior Official” Is Who Wrote the NY Times Op-EdBy Paul Craig Roberts

I know who wrote the anonymous “senior Trump official” op-ed in the New York Times. The New York Times wrote it.

The op-ed (http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/50194.htm) is an obvious forgery. As a former senior official in a presidential administration, I can state with certainty that no senior official would express disagreement anonymously. Anonymous dissent has no credibility. Moreover, the dishonor of it undermines the character of the writer. A real dissenter would use his reputation and the status of his high position to lend weight to his dissent.

The New York Times as Iago

The New York Times continues to outdo itself in the production of fake news. There is no more reliable source of fake news than the intelligence services, which regularly provide their pet outlets (NYT and WaPo) with sensational stories that are as unverifiable as their sources are anonymous. A prize example was the August 24 report that US intelligence agencies don’t know anything about Russia’s plans to mess up our November elections because “informants close to … Putin and in the Kremlin” aren’t saying anything. Not knowing anything about something for which there is no evidence is a rare scoop.

A story like that is not designed to “inform the public” since there is no information in it. It has other purposes: to keep the “Russia is undermining our democracy” story on front pages, with the extra twist in this case of trying to make Putin distrustful of his entourage. The Russian president is supposed to wonder, who are those informants in my entourage?

BEX ALERT - Novichok dose 'could have killed FOUR THOUSAND': Security officials reveal Russian assassins' perfume bottle had enough nerve agent to cause 'significant loss of life' - amid fears there might be a SECOND container

The perfume bottle full of Novichok used to target Sergei and Yulia Skripal contained enough of the nerve agent to kill 4,000 people, it was claimed today.

A security official said the two Russian agents accused of carrying out the Salisbury attack had brought enough Novichok to cause 'significant loss of life'.

The UK's envoy to the UN yesterday accused Moscow of 'playing dice' with British lives after the finger was pointed at Vladimir Putin and the GRU.

The attack left the Skripals critically ill and led to the death of British mother Dawn Sturgess, but the nerve agent could have cost thousands more lives, The Times reported.

Justice Department antitrust head says big tech isn’t necessarily bad

"Just because somebody is big does not mean they have violated the laws," he said at a conference on Thursday. "Nor should we condemn them because they have succeeded." The statement came in response to a question about whether Amazon should be treated as a monopoly, Bloomberg reports. Delrahim said he supported Sessions' meeting but noted that there needs to be "credible evidence" that companies are engaging in anticompetitive practices before antitrust officials can take any measures to correct the problem. "Is any of their conduct in any way limiting the ability of that upstart to challenge their market position in that market where they're dominating?" he said. "Big is not bad but behaving badly is bad."

‘Plaid Shirt Guy’ Speaks Out About Being Removed from Trump Rally: They Just ‘Told Me to Leave’

By now, you’ve probably heard about the “plaid shirt guy” behind President Donald Trump at his rally this week who went viral for his very noticeable reactions to things POTUS was saying.

The plaid shirt guy was eventually removed, but not before taking off on social media, and last night he spoke to CNN’s Don Lemon.

Tyler Linfesty, not exactly a Trump supporter, explained he wanted to go to “see the President and hear what he had to say.”

Lemon asked if he was “deliberately making faces or if that was an actual reaction.”

Linfesty said it was his actual reaction, explaining, “I was not trying to protest. Those were just my actual honest reactions.”

US plan to prevent fall of last terrorist nest in Syria, no concern for civilians – Russian UN envoy

Washington and its allies pursue their geopolitical interests under the guise of humanitarian concerns as they apparently try to prevent the destruction of the last terrorist enclave in Syria, the Russian envoy to the UN said.
The US and its allies have done virtually nothing to contribute to the real peace process in Idlib, the Russian ambassador to the UN, Vassily Nebenzia said, adding that the US particularly did not deliver on its promise to separate the “moderate opposition” groups from the terrorist organizations.

“Instead, [they] are hatching yet another aggressive plan, which includes false flag attacks involving the use of chemical weapons,” the envoy said.

The Western states apparently “go out of their way to prevent the fall of the last major terrorist stronghold in Syria,” Nebenzia said, adding that such actions serve some narrow geopolitical interests rather than the declared need to protect civilians.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is only a question of when, not if, the US military will be attacking in Syria, potentially engaging the Russians as well.

Turkey Will Secure Its Energy Supply, No Matter The Cost

Economic problems resulting from US sanctions and the decline in the value of the Turkish lira will increase the already record high trade deficit, currently half of which is related to energy imports. In 2017 it amounted to 77 billion USD, more than twice the amount of 2016. Erdo?an is determined to create a politically dominant state. To this end he needs to ensure energy independence, which can be done through the occupation of the oil fields in Kirkuk, and the acquisition of the gas fields of Cyprus.

The increase in oil prices will affect the trade deficit even more, while 75% of its value will be energy imports. The average annual barrel price in 2017 was 54 USD, and this year the average cost is about 70 USD, and the price will continue to rise. All of this is a drag on Turkish economy. To counteract the negative balance sheet, Recep Erdo?an will take more determined steps to ensure energy independence. This, however, will lead to turmoil in the region.

Top US Envoy Says "Lots Of Evidence" Assad Prepping Chemical Weapons; Russia Threatens Attack On US Base

While Syria seemed to have dropped from the Western media's radar over the past months as the Syrian Army and its Russian and Iranian allies made rapid gains, multiple huge developments this week have returned the war to center stage in Washington and the dangerous rhetoric of escalation.

In just the last 24 hours alone, we've learned:

Trump has reportedly done a 180 shift, departing from his prior statements of "bring our troops home" made only months ago, and has approved "an indefinite military and diplomatic effort in Syria" according to a bombshell Washington Post report.

Russia has put the US military on notice, telling American commanders that Russian and Syrian forces are prepared to attack At Tanf — a key US garrison along the Syrian-Iraq border.

A top US Syria policy representative says there's “lots of evidence” chemical weapons are being prepared by the Syrian Army for use in its impending Idlib ground assault.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The bovine excrement is being flung explosively, in advance of the US government preparing for an attack against Syria.

I firmly believe that this has to happen very soon, to prevent people from even beginning to think critically about why Bashar Al Assad would use such weapons against his own people, when his, the Russian, and Iranian troops are just on the keening edge of recapturing Idlib from the rebels.

Such a move would make absolutely zero logical sense, which is why, if something like this happens, it is a US/Israeli-generated false flag with which to "justify" and American attack against Syria.

Shocking Footage Shows Iranian Consulate In Basra Exploding In Massive Blaze

update: Stunning footage has emerged of the Iranian consulate in Basra, Iraq burning after a mob of anti-Iran protesters stormed it near dusk on Friday.

The flames appear multiple stories high and several explosions can be observed amidst the massive blaze.

On Thursday evening Iran's consulate in Basra was placed under siege by a throng of demonstrators after a 24-hour period in which a dozen local Shia militia HQ offices and buildings were torched across the city. Mass protests and riots have grown in the city since Monday.

The same night in Baghdad, regional sources indicate at least three mortars targeted the US embassy in Baghdad's protected 'green zone' landing near the gate but not causing significant damage. The events were part of a worsening sectarian crisis across the country in which pro-Iran Shia forces have vowed to expel "foreign occupying forces" — however in the Sunni-majority southern city of Basra, Sunni groups have been engaged in mob reprisal attacks.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This tragedy should, ultimately, be laid squarely at the foot of the Bush Administration, as a result of the invasion and occupation of Iraq.

Its de-Baathification of the country, coupled with the complete sacking of Iraq's military, led to the horrors of the instability which still haunt this country and its divided religious leadership, so many years after the initial invasion and occupation.

The Gaza Strip: Funding for Emergency Fuel Needed Immediately to Avoid Catastrophic Breakdown in Essential Services

This week, final stocks of emergency fuel will be delivered to critical facilities in the Gaza Strip, through the United Nations-Assisted Emergency Fuel Program. The Humanitarian Coordinator, Jamie McGoldrick, has written to the donor community requesting immediate support for the program, which provides life-saving emergency fuel to operate standby emergency power generators at critical health centers, and water and sanitation facilities in the Gaza Strip. Funds donated thus far in 2018 have been depleted.

Life-saving services in Gaza currently depend on the UN’s delivery of emergency fuel, due to an energy crisis that leaves the two million Palestinian residents of Gaza, over half of whom are children, with only 4-5 hours of electricity from the grid per day. Based on the current electricity deficit in Gaza, a minimum of $4.5 million is required to sustain these essential services until the end of the year.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel's "Final Solution" to the "Palestinian Problem" is very multi-faceted; the chance of injury and death due to a lack of electricity at medical centers is precisely one of them.

President Trump has just handed more death sentences to the Gazans, courtesy of his withdrawal of US funds.

Donbass Leader Zakharchenko: A Hero Is Dead. Killing the Minsk Peace Initiative. Kiev Troop Movements Near Donbass

Poroshenko, the NATO puppet leader of the Kiev government in Ukraine openly calls for a military solution to the crisis and has increased the draft in and recently reorganized the Ukraine armed forces command structures to make them more effective in a coming offensive. The US and Canada and other NATO countries have been pouring in arms and ammunition and “advisers” and “mercenaries” in support of the fascist forces, putting additional pressure on Russia with multiple military exercises from the Baltic to Bulgaria, where more tanks have been recently dispatched to “send Russia a message.”

The reality of the situation was stated on the 18th of August 2015, when President Putin stated,

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, the US and NATO want to see just such a confrontation.

That is why NATO and the US have been prepositioning troops and material on Russia's borders with Europe.

The question is, when, rather than if.

Adolph Hitler is “The Torchbearer of Democracy” according to Chairman of Ukraine’s Parliament: No Outrage or Media Coverage by Ukraine's Staunchest Allies. Kiev Regime Speaker of the House "Is Not a Nazi". Ukraine is "A Flowering of Democracy" according t

On September 4, the Chairman of Ukraine’s Parliament (Verkhovna Rada) Andriy Parubiy’s intimated that Adolf Hitler was “the torchbearer of democracy”.

His statement was broadcast on Ukraine’s ICTV channel. Parubiy described Adolf Hitler as a true proponent of democracy claiming that the Führer “practiced direct democracy in the 1930s.” (Tass, September 5, 2018).

“I’m a major supporter of direct democracy,… By the way, I tell you that the biggest man, who practised a direct democracy, was Adolf Aloizovich [Hitler]”. (quoted by South Front)

This controversial statement was not picked up by the Western press. Lies by omission.

Not a single US, Canadian or EU News media took the trouble to cover the story.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable!!

And these... are the US government's "good guys" in Ukraine?!?

Pakistan will not fight anyone else's war, says PM Imran

Prime Minister Imran Khan said on Thursday that the country will not be part of anyone else's war.

The premier said that he was against the involvement of armed forces in the foreign war from the very first day, while addressing defense day ceremony at the GHQ.

Families of martyrs, members of the federal cabinet, heads of political parties, lawmakers and celebrities were also among the attendees at the ceremony.

PM Imran said that Pakistan Army is the only intact and functional institution of the country.

“The Pakistan army is running at its best because of non-political interference and its priority for merit,” he said. "Political interference destroys institutions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I'd say the guy is off to a good start.

Now, when will he be accepting high-level ministers from India to encourage a permanent end of hostilities between the two countries, and when will New Dehli reciprocate?!?

Amputee Australian-Lebanese ringleader of plot to blow up an Etihad flight from Sydney to Abu Dhabi is being held in a secret US jail in Iraq

An alleged Islamic State commander who is accused of planning to blow up a plane last year is being held by American forces at a secret military base in Iraq.

As the alleged ringleader of the plot, Tarek Khayat, is accused of conspiring with his three Lebanese-Australian brothers to blow up an Etihad Airways flight as it left Sydney on July 15 last year.

News Corp has investigated into the whereabouts of Khayat, whose family gave him up following their arrests in Australia.

The investigation found that the alleged ringleader has been secretly held in isolation by American military forces at an unnamed base.

Since being there, they have interrogated him in regards to his role as a commander of an Islamic State unit that plotted attacks in the west.

News Corp claim that Khayat has been intensely interrogated by the soldiers, and has since lost a leg, is suffering from lung cancer, and has given up names of foreign fighters and Islamic State members.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: this man has been tortured to the point where he will say ANYTHING in order to get the torture to stop, and these "confessions" may be used as the "justification" for a coming US/Israeli war against Lebanon as well, to insure "regime change" here also, to insure access to Lebanese oil, and that Israel will have full access to the Litani River, which is just 5 kilometers away from the "boundary-fluid" Israeli border.

Again, I would like to politely point out that when the US military tortures, or outsources torture, this makes a complete mockery of our alleged reverence for the rule of law, humanitarian treatment of prisoners, and gives countries which don't particularly like the US, carte blanche to do the same to American citizens or military personnel.

Please chew on that last bit for a while, if you think that torture is ever justified.

Also, remember the German genius of interrogation of US and British prisoners during World War II; the guy's name was Hanns Scharff,The Story of Hanns Scharff and he got the information he needed through kindness and interest, never hurting anybody. In fact, he was so revered because of his humanitarian care of the prisoners under his watch, that he was invited by the US military to teach his interrogation techniques to American interrogators.

Marine Corps F-35Bs Have Arrived Off the Coast of Africa For The Very First Time

For the first time ever, U.S. Marine Corps F-35Bs Joint Strike Fighters are on an operational deployment in the Gulf of Aden, bringing them the closest they've ever been to conflict zones in Iraq and Syria, Yemen, and Somalia. The stealthy jets and their pilots set to join thousands of other U.S. Navy sailors and Marines for a two-week training exercise while they're in the region, but there's still no indication they are headed for actual combat, at least not yet.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I love that last sentence.

Translation; these US troops are being pre-positioned for potential strikes against Yemen, Syria, and Iraq.

A great deal can happen in two weeks; unfortunately, the White House has made a declaration that US troops will be on Syrian soil "indefinitely.

U.S. targets Syria oil delivery networks with new sanctions

The U.S. Treasury Department said on Thursday it was imposing sanctions on four people and five entities it said facilitated petroleum shipments and financing to the Syrian government.

It said in a statement the sanctions targeted Muhammad al-Qatirji and his trucking company, which it said facilitated fuel trade between the Syrian government and Islamic State militants.

Qatirji has close relations with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s government and has worked directly with Islamic State, which has been driven out of much of the Syrian territory it once controlled, to provide it oil products, the statement said.

Also targeted by sanctions was a fuel-procurement network that operates in Syria, Lebanon and the United Arab Emirates to secure deliveries to Syria, the statement said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"...murderous Assad regime.."?!?!?

Treasury Secretary Mnuchin, a word, sir: please prove this, irrefutably, with verifiable facts.

Because otherwise, all I hear from you, when you make, or publish, such a statement, is the battle cry before the invasion of Iraq, which claimed to the American people, and the world, that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction, which, of course, proved to be a baldfaced lie, to get the American people to sign on to the invasion/occupation of Iraq, to control its oil.

And we have seen just how well that has gone of late; a completely Anti-US Prime Minister has just been elected, Muktada Al Sadr, and we have Shiite militias shooting up the green zone.

On top of that, in terms of Syria, the US presence is perilously close to where Russian officials claim that there will be campaigns to rid Idlib of terrorists.

Secretary Mnuchin, can you honestly sit there with a straight face, and tell the American people that the US is really ready to go to war with Russia over Syria, when you know, or should know, that our Military doesn't have the money, the troop strength, the weaponry or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to a war with Russia?!?

I challenge you to say that out loud, Mr. Secretary, for all the American people to hear.

After all, it won't be your kids or grandkids, killed or maimed for life, in order for the US government to control Syria's oil, right?!?

Navy's F-35C Suffers 1st Major Mishap, Costing Millions in Damages

Two Navy fighter jets were damaged during an aerial refueling exercise off the coast of Virginia late last month, including an F-35C participating in its first round of operational tests aboard an aircraft carrier.

The F-35C was receiving fuel from an F/A-18F Super Hornet off the coast of Virginia on Aug. 23 when debris from an aerial-refueling basket was ingested into the Joint Strike Fighter jet's engine intake, said Lt. Travis Callaghan, a spokesman for Naval Air Forces.

The mishap led to engine damage for the F-35C, assigned to the California-based "Rough Riders" with Strike Fighter Squadron (VFA) 125. While rare, Callahan said parts of refueling baskets being sucked into an engine's intake are the most common form of non-bird foreign object or debris strikes in the Navy's tactical aviation fleet.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The F-35 was released for service on December 5th, 2006.

And the question I must ask, is why, after 12 years of horrific technical foul-ups, bleeps, and blunders, not to mention cost overruns from here to eternity, can LOCKHEED MARTIN'S engineers not get the damned thing fixed?!?

Is it their very generous contributions to both sides of the Aisle, for Presidential and Congressional races, which hold LOCKHEED MARTIN "harmless and indemnified" over the lack of progress in really, and intelligently fixing the litany of known bugs in the F 35's systems?!?

It is question which We, the American Taxpayers, need to be asking, particularly right now, when it appears that our weapons design and manufacturing companies have blown any overweening competitive edge we might have had, compared to Russia and China's weapons designers.

Folks, this is a dangerously nasty place for the US military to be, particularly in light of the fact that it may be flirting with war with Russia and Iran in Syria in the very near future.

As those of you who read this blog understand, I loathe the concept of war as a solution to this country's geopolitical problems; but when that happens, to protect our men and women in the military, our weaponry manufacturers have an obligation to give them the best they can; Lockheed Martin has failed our military miserably with the F-35, and should be working 24/7 to correct these flaws.

Adelson’s perfect little puppet ends all possibility of a Palestinian state

Three years ago, it looked like Sheldon Adelson was going to support Senator Marco Rubio for president, and Donald Trump tweeted a lethal assessment:

Sheldon Adelson is looking to give big dollars to Rubio because he feels he can mold him into his perfect little puppet. I agree!

After that, of course, Trump blew Rubio away, and it was Trump who got $35 million from Adelson in the presidential race. The relationship hums along. Lately Adelson and his wife Miriam gave $55 million to Trump’s firewall against impeachment, Republican congressional campaigns.

And Trump’s shrewd assessment could not be more accurate. He is Adelson’s perfect little puppet.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That last big lie by Adelson, is a vast whopper.

Sorry, Sheldon,bubbie; the coinage tells the story here, far more persuasively and eloquently than I ever can:

Russia Warns US That Syria Offensives Are Planned Near US Positions. US 'postured to respond' militarily to any 'challenge'

While most of the Syrian War is centered at this point around the Idlib Province, the last major rebel bastion, there is also interest in mopping up some of the smaller rebel positions along the Jordan border, especially where ISIS and al-Qaeda are concerned.

This is a raising a dangerous risk of a confrontation between the US and Russia, because Russia and Syria are very keen to chase some of the Islamists off the border in the near future, and Russia has informed them some of these Islamists are relatively close to US military positions in the area.

The US has long been fine with Islamists on the Jordan border, and is warning Russia against taking any action against them, saying the US would view it as a “challenge” and that they would not hesitate to respond militarily if there is any move into the area.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would love to see both some sanity and some clarity in the US government's position on Syria; unfortunately, what I see unfolding here, is the prelude to an all-out war between Russia, Syria, and Iranians in Syria against the US, and potentially inviting the curse of another world war.

Just because something would be the most pig-headedly, ham-fistedly stupid thing for the US Government to do, is absolutely and utterly no guarantee that it will not do it.

Corey Booker’s Grandstanding Stunt Backfires

Early Thursday morning Senator Corey Booker (D-NJ) decided that he would violate senate rules and release an email chain from Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh that were labeled “committee confidential.” At the beginning of Thursday’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, Booker released the emails and claimed, “This is about the closest I’ll ever have in my life to an ‘I am Spartacus’ moment.”

Here’s the problem; Booker claims that he would be willing to risk his career and be kicked out of the senate in order to release this information and “accept the consequences,’ but no classification or confidentially clauses were broken. In fact, early Thursday morning, the emails were cleared to be released by both the republicans and democrats, and Booker knew it. He wanted to be the #resistance hero by causing more unnecessary drama, and instead got caught. His career was never on the line, there would be no consequences, just politics at its worst.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Color me spectacularly unimpressed by these shenanigans; but right now, this is precisely how the Democrats roll.

DRIVING OUT MILITANTS FROM IDLIB NOW TOP PRIORITY IN SYRIA – PUTIN

Driving the extremists out of Syria’s Idlib province should be the primary goal at this stage of the Syrian peace process, Russian President Vladimir Putin said following a meeting with his Turkish and Iranian counterparts.
The Russian leader once again said that Moscow has “irrefutable” evidence that terrorist groups entrenched in the militant-controlled province are seeking to stage false flag attacks using chemical weapons.

“Our common absolute priority lies in the total elimination of terrorists in Syria,” Putin said, adding that Russian forces had recently helped to liberate the southwestern part of the war-torn country and confirming that Idlib province has become the primary target now. “The presence [of militants] poses a direct threat to the … civilians in the whole region,” the president warned.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The big problem here, is that the US government won't let this happen as naturally and gracefully as it should, as President Trump has made the statement that the US military is going to be in Syria...indefinitely:

DONALD TRUMP BACKS PERMANENT U.S. MILITARY PRESENCE IN SYRIA BECAUSE HE DOESN’T TRUST RUSSIA’S INFLUENCE THERE, REPORTS CLAIMS

US Commits to Indefinite military presence in Syria

IF, in fact, these reports are true, one has to wonder just how soon the US, Russia, Syria, and Iran, will be drawn into a nasty military confrontation here in Syria; I don't know what kinds of odds Vegas bookies are putting on this happening, but my sense is soon, and most probably right before the midterms, in order to "energize President Trump's base about going to the polls and voting the Republicans back into control of the government.

JOINT STATEMENT ON THE SALISBURY ATTACK

We, the leaders of France, Germany, the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom, reiterate our outrage at the use of a chemical nerve agent, known as Novichok, in Salisbury on 4 March. We welcome the progress made in the investigation into the poisoning of Sergei and Yulia Skripal, and take note of the attempted murder charges brought yesterday against two suspects. We commend the work of the UK Police and all those involved in this investigation.

We also note the UK’s analysis, independently verified by the OPCW, that the exact same chemical nerve agent was used in the poisoning of Dawn Sturgess and Charles Rowley as was used in the poisoning of the Skripals. We urge Russia to provide full disclosure of its Novichok programme to the OPCW. And we encourage those with information about the attack in Salisbury on 4 March, as well as the further poisoning in Amesbury, to come forward to the UK authorities.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Let the total and complete demonization of Russia (for something it most probably did NOT do, as there was utterly no logical reason for them to have done it) continue apace, until the world is whipped up into an absolutely barking-mad dog frenzy against it!!

RED ALERT: THREE AIRLINERS, THEIR PASSENGERS, AND CONTENTS QUARANTINED BY CDC OFFICIALS

United States health officials and authorities are on high alert after three passenger aircraft have been quarantined at U.S. airports in the past two days.

It all started on Wednesday when an Emirates airline pilot reported to air traffic control that about 100 people aboard the 500 seat superjumbo jet abruptly fell ill with flu-like symptoms while in route to the U.S. from Dubai.

Once the aircraft arrived at JFK International Airport it was met by hundreds of authorities along with CDC officials which proves the severity of the situation. Especially due to the fact that the current Ebola strain has a mortality rate of over 75%which is by far the deadliest strain ever to culminate.

Astonishingly, hip-hop artist Vanilla Ice a.k.a. Robert Van Winkle was on the tarmac aboard the plane at that time and was able to capture video of the situation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am hoping that, without any more hysteria,the CDC is able to identify the sources of these illnesses, take care of those who are ill, and do their best to protect the American people against whatever diseases they find.

And I am hoping - and praying to God - that this is NOT going to be spun into an allegedly weaponised disease, planted by one or more of the "The Usual Suspects" (Russia, China, Syria or Yemen; take your pick.)

MEXICO: 166 HUMAN SKULLS FOUND IN VERACRUZ CLANDESTINE MASS GRAVE

Mexican investigators said Thursday they have discovered 166 human skulls in a clandestine burial pit in a central area of the Gulf state of Veracruz.

This is of the largest mass graves discovered in Mexico, and is presumed to be the work of drug cartels.

Jorge Winckler, a state prosecutor in Veracruz, said that for security reasons he would not reveal the location of the site.

Mexican drug cartels often use clandestine burial sites to dispose of their victims' bodies.

At the beginning of August 2018, the Special Prosecutor for Missing Persons managed to identify and obtain testimony from a person who pointed to a specific point in the center of the state of Veracruz where hundreds of people were secretly interred.

Based on this testimony, on August 8, inspection was carried out in the place this person indicated to authorities.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF you were thinking about taking any kind of vacation in Mexico, please don't; this country has become infamously controlled by the drug cartels, and you risk kidnap and/or death by visiting this nation.

Zuckerberg admits social media is a weapon, says Facebook in 'arms race' against 'bad actors'

If you had any lingering doubt that Facebook has become little more than a vehicle for US government censorship and Western propaganda, a recent Washington Post op-ed by Mark Zuckerberg should remove any ambiguity.

In his short and snappy op-ed, Mark Zuckerberg admits that “protecting democracy” is an “arms race” and reaffirms Facebook’s commitment to winning. Put another way, Zuckerberg is telling us that social media is a weapon — and that he has picked a side.

Washington Post Reporter Implies NYT Anonymous Author Not a Significant Administration Official

Kessler cites a CNN article that contains some background on how the author was able to get his piece within the New York Times’ hands without revealing too much about himself. Here’s what Jim Dao, the op-ed editor for the Times said that gives the game away: “I feel that we followed a definition that has been used by our newsroom in the past.”

The Times has a long history of taking anonymous quotes and reports from “senior” officials. What it doesn’t have much of a history of doing is publishing articles by anonymous authors unless their lives are being put in danger. According to the Columbia Journalism Review, publishing the anti-Trump op-ed was very much unprecedented.

Does Twitter really care about pluralism and free speech? Let’s follow the money

When Twitter first announced that decision in October 2017, it said it was part of its “ongoing commitment to help protect the integrity of the user experience” and admitted that it had made the decision in light of a US intelligence community report that concluded that Russia “attempted to interfere” with the 2016 presidential election. That report was widely panned as being extremely light on evidence, even by journalists who are generally highly critical of Moscow.

To put it simply, Dorsey admitted banning RT from advertising on its platform and then handing the money generated from previous advertising over to US government-funded think tanks. This kind of capitulation suggests that Dorsey believes free speech and pluralism is limited to how he treats Americans of different political persuasions on his platform, but not how he treats everyone else.

'Not Watergate, just gossip': Pulitzer winner on Bob Woodward's new anti-Trump bombshell

The paradoxical era of anonymous anti-Trump reporting has turned once-solid journalism into a carnival of unverifiable accusations. True or not, they distract from real issues, says Pulitzer prize winning journalist Chris Hedges.
A new bombshell book about the horrors of Trump's White House is about to hit the shelves. This time it's not penned by a disgruntled former official, but the world-famous Bob Woodward – the investigative journalist who uncovered the 1970s Watergate scandal that brought down President Richard Nixon. Only this time, instead of doing solid, verifiable journalism, he is peddling damning claims by anonymous sources, says Chris Hedges, a Pulitzer prize winning journalist and author.
