REPORT: U.S., BRITISH FORCES ENTER SOUTHERN SYRIA ALONGSIDE TERRORISTS; IS A BIGGER BATTLE SHAPING UP?

Days after reports that Damascus was on high alert due to increased U.S. troop levels on the Jordanian border and an apparent preparation for an invasion from the south and southeast, the United States and Britain have indeed pushed into Syria from the very location earlier reports suggested would be used.

The reports were released first from the SMART News Agency, which writes that approximately 150 U.S. and British military personnel have entered Syria from Jordan.

SMART News Agency has provided video evidence of their claims. This video reportedly shows several military personnel in armed Humvees engaging in a firefight alongside terrorist forces, who were operating the cameras. Indeed, the familiar “Allahu Akbar” chant can be heard throughout the video.

Hamimah is around 90 km east of Palmyra, near the Deir ez-Zour countryside. Albukamal is also located nearby, a town of strategic importance to the U.S.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I don't know what the Vegas odds-makers are betting on the timing of a a direct conflict between US/UK troops and Syrian/Russian troops, but were I a betting woman, I could not bet against such a scenario, and very soon for the following reason:

NATO BUILDS INFRASTRUCTURE FOR PERMANENT MILITARY PRESENCE NEAR RUSSIA'S BORDERS

A group of about 50 combat engineers based at Canadian Forces Base Gagetown were deployed to Latvia on April 29 as part of Operation Reassurance. The mission is to build a town for 500 soldiers. According to commanding officer Lt.-Col. Chris Cotton, the installation will have «everything you would expect in a small town, from its kitchen to its quarters, its electrical distribution system, water distribution system, internet, gym facilities that would allow people to survive over the long term in Latvia». Obviously, this is an element of vast infrastructure to provide for a long-term commitment.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These massive, permanent deployments, coupled with these exercises, not auger well for peace between Russia and Europe at all.

Lined up with military precision, hundreds of employees wait to make iPhones at one of the most secretive factories in the Apple production line.

From there, they make their way in single file to the assembly line but not before undergoing facial recognition checks at security turnstiles to clock in.

TERRORIST CONFESSES TO TAKING PART IN STAGED CHEMICAL WEAPONS ATTACKS IN SYRIA, WESTERN MEDIA SILENT

After the bombings, as more and more evidence came to light, it became so obvious that the Syrian government had nothing to do with the attacks that any further reference to Khan Sheykhoun should now conjure up memories of an American empire looking for any reason to launch attacks against Syria, so much so that it is ready to slaughter children under the guise of seeking revenge for the killing of children.

Now, however, there is little doubt left as to whether or not the Syrian government was involved in the attack since one of the West’s proxy terrorists recently confessed to taking part in the staging of the attack to be blamed on the Syrian government.

According to a report by Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA),

Webmaster's Commentary:

The Appropriations Committee has Passed Sentence

While I should be enjoying the left eating themselves, I think every time the shutuppery bullies win is a bad thing.

Agreed. And the shutuppery is accelerating: It's just claimed its second Canadian magazine editor in a week - over "cultural appropriation", which like everything else these days started off as some obscure fetish only plonking humorless fringe Marxists cared about and then suddenly, in nothing flat, reared up like the shark in Jaws and started chewing up everyone on the beach.

But as they advise in the Creative Writing courses: Write what you know - or else.

DEEP STATE AGAIN TRIES TO BLOCK DIALOGUE WITH RUSSIA: WASHINGTON POST’S PHONEY STORY ABOUT TRUMP’S LEAK

Washington Post story Trump leaked 'classified information' to Lavrov is phony and a further attempt to prevent a meaningful dialogue between the US and Russia.

The Washington Post story about President Trump’s supposed leak of highly classified intelligence information about ISIS to the Russians is a case study of the lengths to which the President’s enemies are prepared to go in order to discredit him and to stop any chance of a rapprochement with Russia.
Briefly, the Washington Post claims that Trump told Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov and the Russians during his recent meeting with them in the Oval Office information about an alleged plot by ISIS to carry out attacks on passenger aircraft using laptops. The Washington Post describes Trump’s supposed wrongdoing in this way

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Washington Compost has lost whatever microcosm of credibility it ever had left, by publishing this "fake news", and this piece of codswallop reminds us to the degree of subterfuge and outright lying it will do to accommodate its masters in the Deep American State, who want to see this country in a perpetual state of war.

After all, it will never be their kids who get blown to bloody bits or maimed for life, even if there is a return to a draft in this country.

STATE OF DENIAL: THE ECONOMY NO LONGER WORKS AS IT DID IN THE PAST

There’s no Plan B for a state-corporate form of central-planning capitalism that is no longer functioning.

If there is one reality that is denied or obscured by the Status Quo, it is that the economy no longer works as it did in the past. This is the fundamental economic context of our current slide into political-social disintegration.

The Status Quo narrative is: the policies that worked for the past 70 years are still working today. Boiled down to its Keynesian state-corporate essence, the Status Quo economic narrative is simple:

All we need to do to escape a “soft patch” (recession) is for governments to borrow and spend more money to temporarily boost incomes and demand until the private sector gets back on its feet and starts borrowing and spending more.

To help the private sector, central banks lower interest rates so it’s cheaper to borrow and spend.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The question is not if the excrement is going to hit the ventilation shaft; the question is when.

And most of the financial writers I respect indicate that we are looking, ultimately, at a very sharp market "correction" later this year. The Fed just cannot keep limping about at the US economy's current state without this happening.

And the following fits in very disturbingly to a future with a very volatile, and negative, potential for the markets, particularly the financial stocks:

Chem Weapons Expert Says MSM “New Evidence” In Khan Sheykhoun Proves Nothing, Americans Should Question Official Story

By Brandon Turbeville

The United States government and the Western corporate media are doing everything they can to continue to prop up the disproven narrative that Bashar al-Assad launched a chemical attack against civilians in Khan Sheykhoun. After having their story debunked repeatedly, the corporate media keeps coming back for more, even despite having a terrorist confessing to participating in the false flag attack.

This time, the corporate media is claiming to have released “new” footage of the Khan Sheykhoun attack which reveals evidence that the Assad government was behind the attack...

PROOF: Ex-CIA Director Brennan worked directly with foreign spies to keep Trump OUT of the Oval Office

As reported by The Guardian, there is compelling evidence to suggest that former CIA Director John Brennan was the primary U.S. intelligence community source working to undermine the Trump campaign in an effort to prevent the billionaire businessman from becoming president and, after he won, to undermine his transition.

The bizarre tale actually begins with a Fox News analyst, judicial analyst and former judge Andrew Napolitano. In mid-March, he leveled an amazing allegation: That the Obama administration used GCHQ, Great Britain’s equivalent of the National Security Agency, to spy on the Trump campaign during the campaign cycle so that no paper trail would be left.

Fox News: Seth Rich, Murdered DNC Staffer, ‘Leaked Thousands of Internal Emails to WikiLeaks’

The Democratic National Committee staffer who was gunned down on July 10 on a Washington, D.C., street just steps from his home had leaked thousands of internal emails to WikiLeaks, investigative sources told Fox News.

A federal investigator who reviewed an FBI forensic report -- generated within 96 hours after DNC staffer Seth Rich's murder -- detailing the contents Rich’s computer said he made contact with WikiLeaks through Gavin MacFadyen, a now-deceased American investigative reporter, documentary filmmaker, and director of WikiLeaks who was living in London at the time.

Deep State Illegally Leaks Classified Info To Media To Demonize Trump For Legally Disclosing Classified Info

In the latest act of open deep state sabotage to undermine the Trump administration, deep state operatives leaked classified information divulged by Trump in a private White House meeting to The Washington Post and The New York Times.

The meeting involved Russian foreign minister Sergey V. Lavrov, Russian ambassador Sergey I. Kislyak, Lieutenant General H. R. McMaster, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and other unnamed "Americans."

Saying "Mr. Trump's disclosure does not appear to have been illegal" means: "it was not illegal, but we're going to word it in a way that makes it seem like it could be."

The Washington Post said Trump discussed "details of an Islamic State terrorist threat related to the use of laptop computers on aircraft."

Back in March, the threat of terrorists hiding bombs in electronic devices triggered the US and the UK to ban a host of electronics from being carried in cabins on flights from several Middle-Eastern countries.

Major Bombshell: Susan Rice Seeking Immunity Deal! (Video)

Trump said that he would drain the swamp and much to the surprise of his detractors, he appears committed to his campaign pledges. Comey’s unceremonious but well deserved firing was a warning shot across the bow, and it appears that former National Security Advisor to Obama, Susan Rice, has heard the shot loud and clear.

For the record, let's be very clear here. Regardless what nonsense the Democrats or the mainstream media will be spouting in the coming days ahead (and there will be plenty of it), make no mistake, it will all be pure B.S., and it will all be in an attempt to distract Americans from what is easily going to be the largest scandal in our nation's history...

BEX ALERT - Syria using crematorium to cover up mass hangings, US claims

The department has released satellite photographs of the military prison - and an image from January 2015 shows how snow had melted away from just one section of the building.

Symantec and Kaspersky Lab said on Monday some code in an earlier version of the WannaCry software had also appeared in programs used by the Lazarus Group, which researchers from many companies have identified as a North Korea-run hacking operation.

“This is the best clue we have seen to date as to the origins of WannaCry,” Kaspersky Lab researcher Kurt Baumgartner told Reuters.

‘Last place I want to be’: Security Adviser McMaster caught flat-footed when press asks about Trump giving classified info to Russians

Following the bombshell Washington Post report claiming that President Donald Trump spilled classified intel to Russian officials in the Oval Office last week, the president’s national security adviser, Lt. Gen. HR McMaster, reportedly expressed displeasure at the news.

According to Daily Caller White House correspondent Kaitlan Collins, McMaster reportedly said “this is the last place I wanted to be” outside of Press Secretary Sean Spicer’s office.

In the initial Post report about Trump’s Oval Office divulgence, McMaster was quoted as saying “at no time were any intelligence sources of methods discussed and no military operations were disclosed that were not already known publicly.”

Terrorist Confesses To Taking Part In Staged Chemical Weapons Attacks In Syria, Western Media Silent

By Brandon Turbeville

Before the dust settled on Khan Skeykhoun, the United States had used the alleged chemical attack that took place there as the justification for a launch of 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at the al-Sha’aryat airbase in Syria. Even as the missiles were heading toward their target, it was clear that something was not right with the official U.S. government story regarding the incident. In fact, when considering all the evidence, it was clear that the Syrian military had nothing to do with the actual attack. Even more so, there were even questions regarding whether or not the attack actually took place. Now...

STATE DEPARTMENT: RENAMED AL-QAEDA NOT A TERRORIST ORGANIZATION - CAN RECEIVE CIA SUPPLIES

Max Abrams, a professor who works about terrorism, came up with this new definition of "terrorism":

Nonstate actors who use violence against civilians for a political goal and haven't been supported by the US.
The highlighted part is "new" to those who have not learned from history and the many occasions of U.S. support for (typically extremely right-wing) terrorist organizations like the "contras" in Nicaragua, OUN fascists in Ukraine or Jihadi Mujahedin in Afghanistan. It can indeed be argued that the U.S. created al-Qaeda as well as the Islamic State (ISIS).

But lets just be happy that people get again reminded of the issue.

Prof. Adams remark came after a report by the Canadian CBC which found that the U.S. has not designated al-Qaeda's recently renamed organization in Syria as a "foreign terrorist entity".

The Creepy New Russia Smear Website From Team Clinton

A new book about Hillary Clinton’s last campaign for president ? “Shattered,” by journalists Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes ? has gotten a lot of publicity since it appeared two weeks ago. But major media have ignored a revealing passage near the end of the book.

Soon after Clinton’s defeat, top strategists decided where to place the blame. “Within 24 hours of her concession speech,” the authors report, campaign manager Robby Mook and campaign chair John Podesta “assembled her communications team at the Brooklyn headquarters to engineer the case that the election wasn’t entirely on the up-and-up. For a couple of hours, with Shake Shack containers littering the room, they went over the script they would pitch to the press and the public. Already, Russian hacking was the centerpiece of the argument.”

Six months later, that centerpiece of the argument is rampant ? with claims often lurching from unsubstantiated overreach to outright demagoguery.

A Tool of Political Suppression (The eternal FBI)

The FBI has long been an enemy of the citizens of the United States and abused their authority by suppressing dissent and intimidating political opposition to the government. But now, the FBI risks becoming the exclusive tool of one political party, at which point others in government and politics may be targeted! Can’t we all agree that the proper target of the FBI is the peasantry and not the political classes? -- The FBI has always been political, and always will be. Trump’s choice will not be inherently better or worse for the American people than picking someone who is not a politician. But Trump’s choice will be pretty scary for those in the government on the left.

Scott Adams: How to Know You Won a Political Debate on the Internet

Do you remember the time you changed a stranger’s political opinion on the Internet by using your logic and your accurate data?

Probably not. Because that rarely happens. If you were paying attention during the past year, you learned facts don’t matter to our decisions. We think they do, but they don’t. At least not for topics in which we are emotionally invested, such as politics. (Obviously facts do matter to the outcomes. But not to decisions.)

So how do you win a political debate on the Internet when people refuse to change their opinions? I propose the Cognitive Dissonance test.

MAJOR BEXALERT!!! : Syrian regime using crematorium to 'cover up' mass murders, State Department says

This is pathetic.The snow is melting so the building is a crematorium! Gotcha!

The Syrian regime is using a site outside Damascus to cremate the bodies of thousands of prisoners it has abducted, jailed and murdered during the country’s long-running civil war, the U.S. State Department alleged Monday.

Acting Assistant Secretary for Near Eastern Affairs Stuart Jones showed surveillance photos that -- combined with intelligence assessments and other reports -- officials believe show Bashar Assad’s government is complicit in covering up evidence of mass killings at the Sednaya Prison. Located near Damascus, the prison previously has been called a "human slaughterhouse" by Amnesty International.

Jones also charged that the “atrocities” were carried out “with unconditional support” from Russia and Iran.

The U.S. conclusion is based in part on photos that show snow melting near the building believed to be the crematorium.

Fake News Story Claiming Tucker Carlson Died Goes Viral (Video)

Over the weekend, a "fake news" story was created which claimed Fox News host Tucker Carlson had been killed in a car crash. The story went viral and was not only shared more than 16,000 times on Facebook, but also remained a top search on Google, long after the story was confirmed a hoax. It also enabled the hoax to generate a follow-up story aimed to create a stir with the right, claiming the fatal crash could have even been a planned assassination tied with Clinton and Comey.

Germany Confiscating Homes To Use For Migrants

In an unprecedented move, Hamburg authorities confiscated six residential units in the Hamm district near the city center. A trustee appointed by the city is now renovating the properties and will rent them — against the will of the owner — to tenants chosen by the city. District spokeswoman Sorina Weiland said that all renovation costs will be billed to the owner of the properties.
Similar expropriation measures have been proposed in Berlin, the German capital, but abandoned because they were deemed unconstitutional.
Some Germans are asking what is next: Will authorities now limit the maximum amount of living space per person, and force those with large apartments to share them with strangers?

Authorities in Hamburg, the second-largest city in Germany, have begun confiscating private dwellings to ease a housing shortage — one that has been acutely exacerbated by Chancellor Angela Merkel's decision to allow more than two million migrants into the country in recent years.

If the German people haven't revolted by now, this move may well have them at the throats of the bureaucrats who ordered this done.

Theresa May’s Conservatives threaten social media crackdown if elected

If Theresa May and the Conservative Party retain control of the government in the June 8 U.K. elections, they vow to beef up online protections for U.K. citizens, threatening fines against social media companies who fail to safeguard their users.

They want to introduce a new measure that could fine or punish internet firms which fail to adequately flag and take down content harmful to minors or “direct users unintentionally to hate speech, pornography or other sources of harm,” according to a press release.

“The internet has brought a wealth of opportunity but also significant new risks which have evolved faster than society’s response to them,” May said. “We want social media companies to do more to help redress the balance and will take action to make sure they do.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Prime Minister May, a word, please: do those "other sources of harm" (a phrase so ambiguous, one could pilot a frigate through it), include telling the truth about what the British government is actually doing, which don't even get a breath's worth of of coverage at the bbc, like the following headlines?!?

Does UK’s lucrative arms trade come at the cost of political repression?

Most Britons believe selling arms to Saudis is unacceptable

href="https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/jan/28/100m-arms-deal-turkey-blind-eye-rights-abuse">UK’s £100m weapons deal with Turkey ‘turns blind eye to rights abuse’

href="http://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2017/02/24/british-foreign-policy-and-uk-weapons-trade.html">British Foreign Policy and UK Weapons Trade

Because when foreign policy objectives (which seem to include the UK's arming some of the most repressive governments in the world)align with economic opportunity for your very lucrative weapons industry, the outcome is generally civilian slaughter and genocide, as we are seeing with Yemen.

I would imagine that these stories are those you don't want your brother and sister Brits worrying their little heads about, and would scream that these stories constitute the "other harm" to which this legislation refers.

Prime Minister May, the UK gave the world the Magna Carta; you can do far better than this horrifically worded, loose, one size fits all, legislation, which intends to repress honest, fact-checked free speech.

Israel arrests Palestinian writer Ahmad Qatamesh

Israeli forces have carried out raids on homes across the occupied West Bank and detained at least 14 Palestinians on Sunday, among them a prominent intellectual and former political prisoner.

Suha Barghouti, the wife of Ahmad Qatamesh, said "a large force" of Israeli soldiers arrived at their home in the West Bank city of al-Bireh at 4:30 am local time and detained her husband.

General strike against detention of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails
"Until now, we don't know what is going on or where he is," she told Al Jazeera by telephone on Sunday morning, explaining that Israeli soldiers also searched her brother-in-law's nearby home.

In 2013, Qatamesh, a prominent 66-year-old writer, was deemed a "prisoner of conscience" by Amnesty International while he was in an Israeli jail.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So let me get my head around this, please; Israelis (who claim to have the alleged "only democracy in the Middle East), can lock up Palestinians indefinitely for renewable six-month intervals with no trial or charges?!?

In other words, Palestinians can be held indefinitely with no due process, but Jewish Israelis cannot be held in this manner?!?

Home About Antiwar.com Donate Blog US Casualties Contact Latest NewsNorth Korea Says Tested Missile Capable of Carrying Heavy Nuclear Warhead

North Korea’s state media has claimed that yesterday’s successful missile test was aimed at proving the nation’s capability of carrying a “large scale heavy nuclear warhead,” quoting leader Kim Jong-un as saying the United States mainland is in “sighting range for strikes.”

The missile flew 787 kilometers, landing between Russia and Japan. The Pentagon insisted that the missile was “not consistent” with an ICBM of the sort capable of traveling far enough to hit the US. Moreover, this is a rare successful test for North Korea, whose missiles have several times exploded during takeoff recently.

The claim of nuclear-capability is of course still a huge deal, however this too isn’t really proven by a missile test launch, as North Korea’s ability to miniaturize their nuclear weapons into a warhead is very much still in doubt, though clearly with tensions soaring in the region it is in their interest to claim they have such retaliatory capabilities.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

North Korea's missiles most probably cannot hit the mainland; they may, however, be able to hit Hawaii.

The US government "sacrificed" Hawaii once before to get public sentiment behind joining World War 11; would they perhaps, sacrifice the Hawaiian islands again to get public sentiment behind a military attack against North Korea, let's say, with a false flag attack against them, to be blamed on North Korea?!?

U.S. MILITARY IS WORLD’S LARGEST POLLUTER – HUNDREDS OF BASES GRAVELY CONTAMINATED

Last week, mainstream media outlets gave minimal attention to the news that the U.S. Naval station in Virginia Beach had spilled an estimated 94,000 gallons of jet fuel into a nearby waterway, less than a mile from the Atlantic Ocean. While the incident was by no means as catastrophic as some other pipeline spills, it underscores an important yet little-known fact – that the U.S. Department of Defense is both the nation’s and the world’s, largest polluter.

Producing more hazardous waste than the five largest U.S. chemical companies combined, the U.S. Department of Defense has left its toxic legacy throughout the world in the form of depleted uranium, oil, jet fuel, pesticides, defoliants like Agent Orange and lead, among others.

In 2014, the former head of the Pentagon’s environmental program told Newsweek that her office has to contend with 39,000 contaminated areas spread across 19 million acres just in the U.S. alone.

This is completely insane, and must be fixed as quickly by the US government as is possible.

"PROBABLY MORE" LINKS BETWEEN CLINTON & RUSSIA THAN TRUMP, GOPER EXCLAIMS

A clearly frustrated Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) said Sunday that there are "probably more" connections between Hillary Clinton and Russia than there are between Moscow and President Trump.

During an interview with John Catsimatidis that aired Sunday on New York's AM 970, The Hill reports that the lawmaker said:

"I am not aware of any evidence whatsoever of any collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia or between Russia and the Trump campaign,"

"There is probably more evidence of links between Russia and the Clinton campaign than anyone even could imagine between Russia and people involved in the Trump campaign,"
Whether this was a response specifically to this week's New York Times' "Russia-Trump Nexus" op-ed desperation, or more generally the tack that Democrats nationwide seem to remain focused on is unclear. However, as Investors.com's John Merline details below, Rep. King may not be far off the facts...

TOM ENGELHARDT: AMERICA’S GLOBALIZATION OF MISERY

On the initial day of the offensive to recapture the city, the Pentagon was already congratulating the Iraqi military for being “ahead of schedule” in a campaign that was expected to “take weeks or even months.” Little did its planners — who had been announcing its prospective start for nearly a year — know. A week later, everything was still “proceeding according to our plan,” claimed then-U.S. Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter. By the end of January 2017, after 100 days of fierce fighting, the eastern part of that city, divided by the Tigris River, was more or less back in government hands and it had, according to New York Times reporters on the scene, been “spared the wholesale destruction inflicted on other Iraqi cities” like Ramadi and Fallujah, even though those residents who hadn’t fled were reportedly “scratching out a primitive existence, deprived of electricity, running water and other essential city services.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Those in the bowels of power in the Unhinged States of America call this "victory"; and in the parlance of the verbal war-porn of the Vietnam war, the Iraqi and US forces have "destroyed the city in order to save it."

But the alleged "victory, is not for the Iraqi people; it is for the American deep state, which has managed to insure that the government in Baghdad is still nominally Western-centric, and that the oil coming from this country is only sold in US dollars.

The genocide of innocent men, women, and children, by bullets, starvation, or maiming to death of these individuals does not matter to the deep American state, or the financial people; this is all about the oil, and all about the money, no matter the human cost here.

There is a rhythm and an energy here, and once you see the pattern, it becomes quite obvious; invade; destroy; regime change; make sure resources are only sold in US dollars, and repeat.

This is the essence of current American foreign policy, all wrapped up in a pretty, cheap, American flag, until and unless it is stopped, before the planet is vaporized in a nuclear holocaust.

Indict and Arrest These Two Already! (Video)

As FBI Director, James Comey was nothing short of incompetent and his firing was long overdue. In a meritocratic corporate world, he would have been unlikely to get the job in the first place. But gross incompetence is the least of James Comey’s crimes, and evidence has emerged that he may have been actively involved in obstruction of justice. Ironic, considering his previous job.

In the following video, Right Wing News looks at the case of whistleblower Dennis Montgomery, who delivered hard evidence to Comey that Obama had indeed wiretapped Trump. What did Comey do with the information? Nothing, of course. And now watchdog group Judicial Watch has gotten involved, with its founder Larry Klayman issuing an open letter for Comey to be indicted for obstruction of justice. Will this ever happen?

Rumors Swirl: Secret Indictment Issued Against President Donald Trump (Video)

Ever since Trump won the election, his enemies on the left have been crying the words ‘impeachment’ so often that it has become tired. But as Trump moved into office and actually began trying to fulfill his campaign promises, those calls have only gotten stronger. And today, rumors from credible sources are swirling that a sealed indictment has already been granted against Trump.

In the following video, Right Wing News looks at a report from investigative journalists Louise Mensch and Claude Taylor that a sealed indictment has been granted against the President. Due to the Supremacy Clause of the Constitution, until Trump is impeached, he cannot be prosecuted. Is that the next move right after a potential impeachment? Details are foggy right now, but make no mistake, the stakes have never been higher.

Martin King assassinated by US government: new 36-minute interview of King Family civil trial verdict

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

Coretta Scott King: “We have done what we can to reveal the truth, and we now urge you as members of the media, and we call upon elected officials, and other persons of influence to do what they can to share the revelation of this case to the widest possible audience.” – King Family Press Conference, Dec. 9, 1999.

Dr. King’s 2-minute message to you (full 1967 speech to end the Vietnam War):

Dr. Martin Luther King’s family and personal friend/attorney, William F. Pepper, won a civil trial that found US government agencies guilty of Martin's assassination/wrongful death. The 1999 trial, King Family versus Jowers and Other Unknown Co-Conspirators, is the only trial ever conducted on the assassination of Dr. King. The King Center fully documents the case, with full trial transcript (to more fully explain the following summary of trial evidence, here is the best article I've found).

James Comey From The Beginning To End – Comey’s God-Like Complex Brought Him Down.

The firing of Ex-FBI Director James Comey comes as no surprise when you learn about James Comey the man. Regardless of the truth he must always be right, and every decision he makes comes from his need of self-aggrandizement. The trouble is not merely Comey’s grandstanding on behalf of his ego, but he made the nourishment of that ego the motivating force behind his reign at the FBI.

Why Are FBI Agents Divided on Comey Firing??? (Video)

We already know what the reactions from the politicians are on the Comey firing. The left are using this as more anti-Trump fodder, forgetting that less than a year ago they were asking for his head themselves. But what do experienced FBI officials have to say?

In the following video, Right Wing News looks at the statements made by bureau officials on the firing and sees that they are also divided. Does Trump firing Comey at this juncture, and instead of during the transition, call his integrity into question? There is little doubt that Comey, who continually obstructed objective investigation into the Clinton email scandal, had to go. But why did Trump act only now?

MASSIVE CORPORATE CONSOLIDATION OF LOCAL NEWS UNDERWAY

In a deal that will allow one broadcasting company to reach 72 percent of U.S. households through ownership of local news stations, it was reported this week that Sinclair Broadcast Group is buying Tribune Media for nearly $4 billion.

Such a move wouldn’t have been possible a few weeks back, but Donald Trump’s new Federal Trade Commission (FCC) chairman, Ajit Pai, just began implementing sweeping changes to previously established media ownership rules. Bloomberg explains:

“A Sinclair-Tribune merger was made easier last month when the FCC restored a rule that allows TV station groups to count just half of their coverage area for Ultra High Frequency stations to comply with a 39 percent nationwide cap set by Congress.”

Reporting on the news, Democracy Now invited the president and CEO of Free Press, Craig Aaron, to comment on the significance of the purchase.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is why you need to be paying all the more attention to what you are getting from independent media resources, as the Sinclair/Tribune merger will mean that the Deep American State has handed its corporate presstitutes even more power to regurgitate the propaganda necessary to sell you both more wars, and more personal disenfranchisement, at every level of your life.

I will adamantly refuse to accept more poverty and more wars as the "new normal", thank you very much!!

JAMA ADMITS 30% OF DRUGS APPROVED BY FDA-APPROVED ARE SERIOUSLY DANGEROUS

Close to one-third of drugs approved by the FDA are found to have safety problems, according to a research report from The Journal of the American Medical Association.

JAMA’s report stated that these safety issues, known as “postmarket safety events,” are “common after FDA approval, highlighting the importance of continuous monitoring of the safety of novel therapeutics throughout their life cycle.”

The study sought to identify the “frequency of postmarket safety events” of FDA-approved drugs. It revealed that 222 “novel therapeutics” were approved by the FDA between 2001 and 2010. Out of those 222 FDA-approved products, there were 123 safety issues later found in 71, or 32 per cent, of the approved drugs. Actions taken for the 71 drugs included withdrawal of the substance, new safety announcements highlighting discovered risks, and issuing “black box” warnings.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How do we get the attention of the CEOs of those companies continuing to make pharmaceuticals with intense problems in use?!?

Possibly, making the marketing of unsafe drugs a felony, which gets coupled with jail time for the execs who sign off on these drugs, knowing that there may well be intense problems for patients taking the drugs down the road?!?

Because a 30% problem rate with drugs is simply unacceptable, period, end of discussion.

And this study demonstrates that the manufacture, and sales of these drugs is not about health; it is about money, period, end of discussion.

Whistleblowers: James Comey Seized and Buried Information Showing Donald Trump’s Phone Calls Were Spied On

Former FBI director James Comey seized and buried volumes of information that demonstrated a wide-ranging government surveillance operation targeting Donald Trump before he became president.

Big League Politics has learned that Larry Klayman, attorney for former NSA and CIA contractor and whistleblower Dennis Montgomery, delivered to the FBI 47 hard drives and data amounting to more than 600 million pages of documentation on the surveillance scheme. Then-FBI director James Comey’s general counsel James Baker took the data into his possession, according to multiple sources. But despite possessing Montgomery’s bombshell whistleblower revelations, Comey never acted on or publicized the information.

CENTCOM BREAKS "FREE PASSAGE" DEAL - ITS ALLIES WILL HAVE TO BLEED FOR THIS

On Friday the U.S. "Inherent Resolve" command of its operations in Syria and Iraq released an statement that points to unnecessary intensified fighting about the city of Raqqa and elsewhere.

The Syrian Arab Coalition and their Syrian Democratic Force partners completed the liberation of the Tabqah Dam, as well as the city of Tabqah and its nearby airfield May 10.

The Kurdish forces obviously made a deal with the ISIS rearguard. They offered free passage (safe conduct) to the ISIS fighters if those would dismantled their demolition charges on the Tabqa dam and leave their heavy weapons behind. The ISIS group accepted and fulfilled its part of the deal. The dam was saved. The ISIS forces withdrew.

The Kurdish commander had made the right decision. Any fighting around, on or within the dam structure could have led to a catastrophic dam failure which would have killed ten-thousands (at least) further down the Euphrates.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So what we have here is catch and release, make a deal, then kill later?!?

Turkish PM: US Promises Kurds Won’t Stay in Raqqa

Speaking to reporters today during an official visit to London, Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim says that the United States has assured Turkey that even though the Kurdish YPG is being used to invade ISIS’ capital city of Raqqa, they will not keep control of the city after the battle.

These assurances appear to have been made to try to placate Turkish outrage over US plans to arm the YPG with heavy weapons for the Raqqa battle, and for the US choosing to back the YPG in the offensive against ISIS in general, something Turkey has repeatedly condemned.

Kurdish officials have never said anything about conquering Raqqa for somebody else, and it would be unusual for the group to be willing to commit so heavy to the invasion of a city if they didn’t have designs on incorporating it into their self-declared autonomous region.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why would the Kurds be fighting at all, if not for an independent Kurdistan?!?

The US government and military need to be very clear as to their ultimate intentions here; otherwise, they may well find Turkey leaving NATO, and leaving them with a vast hole in their garrisoning of the Middle East.

Trump Warns New South Korea President Against Call for North Korea Talks

New South Korean President Moon Jae-in has made clear he wants to get reconciliation talks going with North Korea, and took a bit of a shot at US sanctions pushes in comments yesterday, saying he thinks sanctions should only be considered as a tool to get North Korea to the table for talks.

The Trump Administration has insisted in recent weeks they consider diplomacy to have “failed,” and President Trump appeared very dismissive of the new push for diplomacy today, saying he would only accept discussion with North Korea “under certain circumstances.”

Trump didn’t make clear what those circumstances would be, naturally, but did appear to reject the need for talks in the near term, bragging that he’s handling North Korea “very well, very firmly” without diplomacy. The State Department added that they want North Korea to “cease all illegal activities” for the possibility of talks.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump, a word here, please: your ultimatum to South Korean President Moon reeks with hubris.

And please remember; ultimately, without negotiation and diplomacy, there is absolutely no opportunity to move forward toward peace, and away from war.

"We won’t be in Raqqa in 2020, but the regime will be there."

IF, in fact, this article is correct, there are reasons to be hopeful about the ultimate outcome in Syria.

If it is not, we are looking at a direct military conflict in Syria with Russia, and that would be horrific.

$500 TRILLION IN DERIVATIVES “REMAIN AN IMPORTANT ASSET CLASS”: HILARIOUSLY, THE NEW YORK FED

Oh, and the unintended consequences of trying to regulate a monster.

Economists at the New York Fed included this gem in their report on a two-day conference on “Derivatives and Regulatory Changes” since the Financial Crisis:

Though the notional amount [of derivatives] outstanding has declined in recent years, at more than $500 trillion outstanding, OTC derivatives remain an important asset class.

An important asset class. A hilarious understatement. Let’s see… the “notional amount” of $500 trillion is 25 times the GDP of the US and about 7 times global GDP. Derivatives are not just an “important asset class,” like bonds; they’re the largest “financial weapons of mass destruction,” as Warren Buffett called them in 2003.

Derivatives are used for hedging economic risks. And they’re used as “speculative directional exposures” – very risky one-sided bets. It’s all tied together in an immense and opaque market interwoven with the banks. The New York Fed:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When the economic dam bursts, and we know this is a case of when, and not if, those derivatives will economically sink the institutions which hold them.

The Russian Hacking Fiasco

There’s no proof that Russia hacked the US elections.

There’s no proof that Russian officials or Russian agents colluded with members of the Trump campaign.

There’s no proof that Russia provided material support of any kind for the Trump campaign or that Russian agents hacked Hillary Clinton’s emails or that Russian officials provided Wikileaks with emails that were intended to sabotage Hillary’s chances to win the election.

So far, no one in any of the 17 US intelligence agencies has stepped forward and verified the claims of Russian meddling or produced a scintilla of hard evidence that Russia was in anyway involved in the 2016 elections.

No proof means no proof.

US APPROVES $2 BILLION MISSILE SALE TO UAE

It looks like the weapons manufacturers win again as the US approves selling weapons to a foreign military known for terrorist actions.

The United Arab Emirates’s recent military decisions include violently ending democratic protests in Bahrain and participating in Saudi-led military coalition in Yemen. There have recently been massive protests against the Saudi Arabian/UAE terrorism against Yemen civilians, including using US supplied chemical weapons. The UAE participated in the terrible crimes that some call a genocide, and now they will be armed with another $2 billion dollars worth of US supplied weapons.

The Pentagon has issued a statement today confirming that the US State Department has signed off on a $2 billion sale of US-made Patriot missiles to the United Arab Emirates, adding to the tiny Gulf nation’s ever-growing military arsenal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How wonderful that US weapons manufacturers are making a killing under President Trump's watch, both literally and figuratively.

To prove my point, The Washington Post on Thursday published a lengthy story entitled in the print editions “Alarm at Russian in White House” about a Russian photographer who was allowed into the Oval Office to photograph President Trump’s meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.

The Post cited complaints from former U.S. intelligence officials who criticized the presence of the Russian photographer as “a potential security breach” because of “the danger that a listening device or other surveillance equipment could have been brought into the Oval Office while hidden in cameras or other electronics.”

Susan Rice Denies Senate Request To Testify In Hearing On Russian Election Interference

Susan Rice, the Obama administration official made infamous for sending dozens of requests seeking to reveal the identities of Trump’s associates, has something to hide. Citing a ‘non-bipartisan invitation’, she, via her lawyer, declined Senator Lindsey Graham’s request to testify in front a Senate judiciary subcommittee next week on Russian interference in the U.S. presidential election.

In the following video, Right Wing News looks at the case of Susan Rice, who is clearly afraid of being forced to testify under oath. How ironic, considering that her unconstitutional requests for unmasking Trump’s associates were under the justification of national security and now she is refusing to testify on Russian interference, which is a matter of national security as well. Why the hypocrisy?

Trump Was Mad Comey Wouldn’t Utter Three Important Words (Video)

Many relationships have been broken up over the refusal of one party to say three important words, and it looks like the same might have happened between Trump and Comey. No, it has nothing to do with love, but the Russian connection, or rather the lack of one. The three important words that Comey refused to tell Trump; “There’s no ties”.

In the following video, Right Wing News looks at the report, which claims Comey’s unwillingness to publicly say there were no Russian ties to the Trump administration infuriated the President. Despite Comey’s high profile public persona, he refused to make an official statement, which will no doubt continue to fuel the mainstream media’s obsession on this non-issue. Was this really the straw that broke the camel’s back or was there something else?

This reopens the criminal case against Hillary Clinton for Emperor’s New Clothes obvious crimes.
Misdirection from more push for WW3.
More intra-oligarch positioning that changes nothing for We the People.
Something else.

Two Historic Media Events Created to Hide Top Secret Missions

Think you know history? What about these major events, contrived to cover for top secret operations.

Ready for the real story? Everything from scientific research and oil and gas drilling can and have been used as a cover for clandestine exploration of the deep sea and underground environments.

The discovery of the Titanic wreckage and the Glomar Explorer are two such examples, remarkable because of the high profile press celebration of the achievements operating as cover for a larger secret.

Given that discover Robert Ballard was secretly a Naval officer on a top secret mission, and that he attends Bohemian Grove regularly, we can only surmise the real story.

Well Duh! 14 Years Later, Condoleezza Rice Reveals Real Reason for Iraq Invasion

Ex-George W. Bush-era national security adviser Condoleezza Rice, one of the architects behind the 2003 US invasion of Iraq, has admitted that bringing democracy to the Middle Eastern country was not the real priority. Speaking to Sputnik, Norwegian political scientist Georg Jakobsen said that the US's real goal was to impose its own model on Iraq.

Speaking at a meeting at the Brookings Institution, a leading DC think tank, on Thursday, Rice revealed that "security," not democracy, was the real motivating factor behind the US invasions of both Afghanistan and Iraq.

In Iraq's case, the former national security advisor (who also later served as Bush's secretary of state) revealed that the US "didn't go to Iraq to bring democracy to Iraq. We went to Iraq to overthrow Saddam Hussein, who we thought was reconstituting weapons of mass destruction, and who we knew had been a threat in the region. It was a security problem."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

WOW, when this lady doubles down on disseminating bovine excrement, she really doubles down!!

Secretary Rice, a word, please; the world knows that you are lying, yet you continue to lie about the real motivations for both wars. You use the word "security" when what you meant was ECONOMIC security, because, as Karl Marx once noted, all wars are economic in their origins.

In Iraq, Saddam Hussein was selling their oil for other currencies than the US dollar; in Afghanistan, it was about securing the pipeline rights, and rights to the abundance of mineral riches in that country, and making sure that all that was only sold in US dollars.

It's that simple, and because the world knows you are lying about these issues, you will never be believed, in anything you say, even if what you say happens to be (accidentally) the truth.

Palestinian mass hunger strike takes dramatic turn

More Palestinian prisoners are joining the mass hunger strike which entered its 26th day Friday, with the campaign assuming global proportions amid worsening health conditions of hundreds of strikers languishing in Israeli jails.

Sawt al-Asra (Voice of Prisoners) radio cited anonymous sources as saying that nearly 100 Palestinian inmates from different political factions have decided to join the hunger strike.

The radio estimated that nearly 1,800 prisoners are currently participating in the strike. However, the Palestinian Prisoners’ Club put the figure far higher, saying more than 3,000 prisoners are taking part in the strike.

Israeli authorities have, however, claimed that fewer than 1,000 prisoners are participating in the strike.

The Fatah Central Committee, considered the Palestinian movement’s top decision-making body, called on Thursday for all its members in Israeli prisons to join the hunger strike immediately.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When the Israeli guards start losing these men to either malnutrition, or NG forced feeding gone wrong, the excrement is going to hit the ventilation system big time, both within the prisons, and within both Israel and Palestine .

And Prime Minister Netanyahu, a word, please; the world is watching the outcome of these hunger strikes; please don't do something utterly foolish with these political prisoners.

BEX ALERT - Russian hackers attacked 2008 Obama campaign

Russian hackers targeted the 2008 Barack Obama campaign and U.S. government officials as far back as 2007 and have continued to attack them since they left their government jobs, according to a new report scheduled for release Friday.

The targets included several of the 2008 Obama campaign field managers as well as the president’s closest White House aides and senior officials in the Defense, State and Energy Departments, the report says.

It named several officials by title, but not by name, including “several officials involved in Russian policy, including a U.S. ambassador to Russia,” said a draft version of the report, authored by Area 1 Security, a Redwood, California company founded by former NSA veterans.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I wonder if they are going to blame this global ransomware attack on Russia!

10 Major FBI Scandals On Comey’s Watch

News just broke that President Trump is dismissing the director of the FBI, James Comey.

Comey will inevitably be remembered for the controversial role he played in the 2016 presidential election, where his agency conducted surveillance of the Trump campaign as well as investigated the Clinton camp for mishandling classified materials, giving both sides arguments for how the FBI ultimately swayed the vote.

What is the NSA Up to Now? (Video)

In the tiniest bone thrown to privacy advocates everywhere, the NSA has supposedly agreed to stop collecting certain Internet communications that only mention a foreign intelligence target. What a victory for the people. It is nothing but a hollow and meaningless victory, and in the ocean of surveillance is nothing but a tiny drop.

In the following video, Right Wing News takes a look at the true scope of surveillance that Americans deal with every day, and what’s to come in the future. With the number of household appliances joining the ‘Internet of Things’ set to grow at a record pace, the potential for third parties to monitor our every movement grows as well. There is a price for ease of access and convenience, and it looks like the average American is more than happy to pay it.
