The Lie of the 21st Century: How Mainstream Media “Fake News” Led to the U.S. Invasion of Iraq

Just to be clear, there are a number of websites that do spread misinformation including those in the alternative media, but it is fair to say that they never have caused the deaths of millions of people like The New York Times when it comes to U.S. foreign policy. A recent example is the U.S. led war against Iraq in 2003. After the September 11th attacks, the George W. Bush administration made a false accusation that the Iraq government had Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMDs) which led to a U.S. invasion eventually toppling Iraqi President Saddam Hussein. The U.S. led war turned out to be a calculated plan by The Project for the New American Century (PNAC), a neo-conservative think-tank who wrote the secretive blueprint called ‘Rebuilding America’s Defenses: Strategies, Forces And Resources For A New Century’ to remove Saddam Hussein and the Ba’ath party from power. The blueprint was originally written for the neocon lunatics who served under then-President George W.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, the New York Times, aided and abetted by Judith Miller, became the Bush Administration's "Ministry of Propaganda" to "sell" the Iraq war to the American people on a package of lies and disinformation.

And they have the nerve, and effrontery, to label the entire independent media as purveyors of "fake news"?!?!

How bloody dare they, after laying the propaganda groundwork for a war in which over 4,000 Americans, and over half a million Iraqis have died, accuse the independent media of lying, and/or colluding with the Russians?!?

Folks, this is collective desperation on the cusp of madness; they cannot "sell" their poison anymore to a war-weary, and war-skeptical American public, so they are attempting to suppress those voices in the alternative media who ARE telling the truth, the best they can.

And I consider WRH to be in great company with those other sites listed in the WaPo article about alleged "fake news", because I know that the people who run them are people of moral integrity, and clarity.

And thank you, WaPo, for your bellicose, hubristic screed against the truth tellers; it means we are making a difference in the way people and getting their news, and responding to it, and that is the best possible news all of us could be receiving at this critical transition point for this country!!

Lone Blogger Rages Against The Washington Post's Russian "Hit List"

I have to admit I’m quite honored to see that Liberty Blitzkrieg was recently included on a list of some of the most illustrious, impactful and successful alternative news websites on the planet.

The list was created by an anonymous group of status quo crybabies who simply can’t handle the fact their beloved chosen oligarch was defeated in a democratically held election by Donald Trump (who I didn’t even support). As such, they are lashing out at alternative news outlets deemed most effective in countering the smothering and nonsensical pro-Hillary narrative tirelessly propagated by the fake mainstream news media.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Something you all need to keep in mind. The Corporate media cannot change what they do; lie to the people for profit. Neither do they have the moral integrity to admit what they have done. Hence, we can expect a hard and dirty fight in the coming months. Take a lesson from "Pizzagate." The Corporate Media, Hillary campaign, and intelligence agencies will all try to plant false stories in the Independent Media to discredit us in the eyes of the public. BE VIGILANT. Even more than that, be PROFESSIONAL!

Pakistan warns India over rising tensions

Pakistan's air force chief has warned arch-rival India against escalating the dispute over Kashmir into full-scale war.

Marshal Sohail Aman's warning on Thursday comes as tensions soar between Islamabad and New Delhi over the contested Himalayan territory after a day of violent exchanges.

The Pakistani army said Indian fire killed 12 civilians and three soldiers on Wednesday - the deadliest incident in weeks of border clashes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to hope that SOME responsible adults in the world of geopolitics are working the phones this weekend, and suggesting that both nuclear-armed countries cool their jets, and back away from confrontation.

The regional, and world, consequences from the devastation from such a conflict would create would be horrific...and irreversible.

WikiLeaks’ ‘Yemen Files’ Reveal Scope of US Involvement in Yemen War

WikiLeaks has released a new collection of 500 internal documents today from the US Embassy in Sanaa, the latest in a long series of leaks the group has obtained over the years. The documents detail US involvement in Yemen in the lead up to and during the Saudi invasion.

Dubbed the “Yemen Files,” it covers emails from 2009-2015, covering Secretary of States Hillary Clinton and John Kerry’s terms. The files include considerable details of US arming and training of Yemeni military forces in the build up to the Saudi invasion.

Of course, the US also backed Saudi Arabia in their invasion, leading WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to note that most of the bombs that have fallen on Yemen over the course of the war were American made.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US militarily-enabled Saudi military has bombed schools, hospitals, and open air markets.

They have murdered children.Images of Yemeni children killed or maimed for life from Saudi air strikes
and many of those left standing are starving to death, courtesy of the Saudi naval blockade of Yemen.Images of dead and starving children, courtesy of Saudi military bombing and blockade

The US and UK, through their selling of bombs and missiles to Saudi Arabia for this assault on Yemen, coupled with the US military "providing guidance" for Saudi air strikes, makes the US, and the UK, complicit is Saudi war crimes against the people of Yemen.

This serial genocide of the Yemeni people began, 19 months ago, for them having had the temerity to overthrow their sitting President, Al-Hadi. And does anyone else remember how many names were actually on the ballot when al-Hadi was elected?!? Only one; his.

Yemen holds presidential election with one candidate

It was an experiment doomed to ultimate failure.

What the Trump administration needs to do, just as soon as it has practically assumed power, is to very publicly announce that it will no longer support this immoral and illegal war against the Yemeni people, but will only support an immediate cease-fire from all sides, and a peaceful dialogue between the Houthi rebels and the Al-Hadi loyalists so that they can work out a positive future for this country.

The Saudi blockade of Yemeni harbors needs to cease immediately, so that food, and medical aid can be brought in quickly, to prevent more famine, and resulting deaths.

I don't know how the rest of our readers feel about this, but I am not particularly happy about being a citizen of a country which enables and abets war crimes, and I am pretty sure that a good number of my English cousins in the UK feel precisely the same way about the UK government also being complicit in these war crimes in Yemen.

The Truth about Huma Abedin that Media Matters Doesn’t Want America to See

Hillary Clinton has stated publicly that she helped “start and support” Media Matters, and that organization has consistently come to Clinton’s aid with a consistent campaign of misinformation, half-truths and smears of her critics that can then get repeated by the mainstream media.

The Vanity Fair article must have sent shockwaves through the Clinton camp. It’s rare to read mainstream press criticism of Huma Abedin.

Washington Post Sloppy ‘Journalism’ Blames Russia for “Fake News” Crisis and Trump’s Win, While Pushing Neo-McCarthyism

The mainstream media’s post-election hysteria has taken on new level of crazy. It seems that The Washington Post has gone off the deep end this week, claiming that Russia is behind the “fake news” crisis which they claim helped propel an insurgent Donald Trump to victory on Nov 8th, and they are still standing by the official conspiracy theory that Russia has somehow hacked into the US elections. Everything that’s wrong with the establishment media is contained within this incredible story…

The hacking claim is nothing new – backed by the White House and trumpeted by Hillary Clinton, the US mainstream media has claimed that Russia has been hacking and manipulating our US elections. The only problem is it never happened. What’s more disturbing though, is the complete collapse in journalistic standards at what used to be considered ‘America’s paper of record.’

Uniquely Talented: Only the Democrats Could Have Lost to Trump

A great uproar goes forth from the enemies of the Trump Beast, with much gnashing of hair and pulling of teeth. He will be a terrible President, they say, and they may well be right. There are ominous signs, particularly as regards foreign policy, and he seems radically incoherent and contradictory. Interestingly, his critics have no slight idea why he won. The reason is obvious: He won because everybody was campaigning for him, in particular the media, Hillary, Black Lives Matter, Obama, Democrats, and far leftists. Everybody worked for Trump. He couldn’t lose.

Washington Post Names Drudge, Zero Hedge, & Ron Paul As Anti-Clinton "Sophisticated Russian Propaganda Tools"

The desperate flailing of a mainstream-media struggling through the five stages of grief continues as no lesser unbiased foundation of the fourth estate than The Washington Post pushes ahead with its “fake news, blame the Russians” narrative for why their candidate failed so miserably.

Citing “two teams of independent researchers” (who surely have a substantial libel litigation provision) who found “Russia’s increasingly sophisticated propaganda machinery… echoed and amplified right-wing sites across the Internet as they portrayed Clinton as a criminal,” the Jeff Bezos-owned website names Drudge, Zero Hedge, and The Ron Paul Institute and countless other outlets among the “useful idiots” that true American patriots should be wary of.

“The way that this propaganda apparatus supported Trump was equivalent to some massive amount of a media buy,”said the executive director of PropOrNot, who spoke on the condition of anonymity with the Post.

Feds Plan To Shut Down Dakota Access Pipeline Protest Camp

The federal government on Friday revealed plans to shut the largest camp in North Dakota where protesters have gathered for months in opposition to the Dakota Access Pipeline.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said in a letter to a Native American tribe leading the opposition against the pipeline that it will close the area on Dec. 5, after a series of clashes between law enforcement and protesters.

“This decision is necessary to protect the general public from the violent confrontations between protestors and law enforcement officials that have occurred in this area, and to prevent death, illness, or serious injury to inhabitants of encampments due to the harsh North Dakota winter conditions,” Col. John Henderson said in a letter to tribal chairman Dave Archambault. “The necessary emergency, medical, and fire response services, law enforcement, or sustainable facilities to protect people from these conditions on this property cannot be provided.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The date for this shut-down is one week from this Monday.

Were I a betting woman, I would almost be willing to bet that the Standing Souix, and the other people who have come to protest both encroachment on these ancient Indian lands, ceded to them by treaty, and the very real, potential environmental damage to water resources, will not back down, but force the Federal Government's hand here.

And I would politely like to point out to Col. John Henderson, that there is no such thing as a "free speech zone"; this is a false construct, created by the Federal Government, to absolutely suppress free speech, which is guaranteed to all Americans by the first Amendment to the Constitution in the Bill of Rights.

Such an alleged "free speech zone" falsely gives protesters the illusion that such a thing as free speech still exists in this country when it does not, particularly when gets in the way of corporate profits, as it is doing here.

Neocons Nobble EU Over Anti-Russian Media Stance

A recent resolution passed by the European Parliament places Russia and Daesh (also known as ISIS or ISIL) in the same category when it comes to the threat they pose to the West, alleging that the news carried by Russian media organizations, RT and Sputnik, is propaganda and therefore illegitimate.

It is hard to quantify the moral bankruptcy behind this resolution, which brings the EU and its parliament into disrepute. This is a parliament, it is worth bearing in mind, which is made up of representatives of governments that have either played a part in destabilizing the Middle East or lifted not one finger to try and alleviate the suffering of the millions impacted by the consequences of this destabilization.

‘Fake news’? Time to choose: Corporate media fakes us into wars that aren’t even close to lawful, are Orwellian illegal Wars of Aggression (1 of 14)

The Washington Post added to President Obama’s rhetoric for Americans to be aware of “fake news”: easily refuted lies of omission and commission in media.

WELLS FARGO SAYS THAT ITS CUSTOMERS GAVE UP RIGHT TO SUE BY HAVING THEIR SIGNATURES FORGED

Even though disgraced Wells Fargo CEO John Stumpf has left the building, his most outrageous legal theories live on: on Wednesday, the company filed a motion in a federal court in Utah seeking dismissal of a class action suit by the customers it defrauded -- the bank argues that since customers sign a binding arbitration "agreement" when they open new accounts, that the customers whose signatures were forged on fraudulent new accounts should be subject to this agreement and denied a day in court.

This is the same argument that Stumpf made during his disastrous performance in front of a blazing Elizabeth Warren -- that Wells's poor customers should be subjected to agreements they never made, because Wells stole their identities and "agreed" on their behalf.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

WHAT THE HELL?!?

WELLS FARGO CUSTOMERS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE BOUND BY AGREEMENTS THEY THEMSELVES NEVER SIGNED?!?

Lancet study on statins was 'fundamentally flawed', critics say

A major Lancet study which backed the safety of statins was “fundamentally flawed” and underestimated the side-effects of the heart drugs, a group of medics has said.

Lead author Dr Malhotra said “Decades of misinformation on cholesterol and the gross exaggeration of statin benefits with downplaying of side effects has likely led to the overmedication of millions of people across the world.”

“The lack of transparency in the prescription of statins is just one symptom of a broken system of healthcare where finance based medicine has trumped independent evidence and what is most important for patients.”

Child Labor' Attack on Trump Education Pick Is the Dumbest Thing You'll Read Today

President-elect Trump announced on Wednesday that billionaire Republican donor Betsy DeVos, a school choice activist, was his pick to head the Department of Education. The left immediately commenced a collective tantrum over the school choice issue—the New York Times shrieking in a headline that she has "steered money from public schools"—and promptly declared DeVos unfit for the position based on that single issue.

Alana Horowitz Satlin, the assignment editor at Huffington Post, is also concerned about that issue, but in a breathless essay on Thursday, she also informed readers of an even more egregious sin in DeVos's past—something so fearful that it would irrevocably endanger the children of America. Betsy DeVos, you see, supports child labor. That's right. It says so right there at the Huffington Post under the headline "Group Funded By Trump’s Education Secretary Pick: ‘Bring Back Child Labor'":

Crimes against Humanity: Ninety Percent of Gaza Has No Clean Drinking Water

Ninety percent of Gaza has no safe drinking water and by 2020, none of the water in the blockaded enclave will be usable if nothing is done, the World Bank said this week.

This was not always the case. As recently as the late 1990s, tap water in Gaza was safe to drink, World Bank Senior Water and Sanitation Specialist Adnan Ghosheh said in his statement on the World Bank website this week. But since then, so much water has been pumped from the natural aquifer underneath Gaza that seawater has seeped in, spoiling the water and making it too salty for drinking.

Gaza’s nearly 2 million residents, therefore, rely on about 150 water truck operators selling desalinated filtered drinking water. However, “It’s more expensive and not an improved source of water, according to our definitions of water clean enough to drink,” Ghosheh said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Access to clean water is a basic human right; withholding or denying it, is tantamount to a war crime, courtesy of the Israelis, against the Palestinians.

China: Xinjiang residents told to turn in passports

All residents in China's largely Muslim region of Xinjiang must hand in their passports to local police stations for "examination and management", according to Global Times, a state-funded newspaper .

"Anyone who needs the passport must apply to the police station," an anonymous police officer in Aksu prefecture told the paper on Thursday, adding that the policy had been implemented throughout Xinjiang.

The Global Times article followed numerous reports of tightened passport controls in cities across the region.

In June, local state-run media reported that the mostly Kazakh residents of a Xinjiang border district had to give police DNA samples, fingerprints, voiceprints and a "three-dimensional image" in order to apply for certain travel documents, including passports.

A Xinjiang official told the Global Times that the new tightening of policy was intended to maintain social order in the region.

Syrian Rebels Show Off New Anti-Aircraft Missiles

After months of the US assisting weapons smuggling to rebels in Syria but also trying to keep anti-aircraft missiles out of the country, the US-backed rebels in the south, including Ansar al-Islam forces have issued a video of their fighters parading around with anti-aircraft weapons.

The weapons shown in the video were 9k32 Strela-2 missiles, a Soviet design from the late 1960s which remains a popular shoulder-mounted anti-aircraft missile across the world. It is unclear where the rebels got them, but they claimed to have a “good number” of them.

Saudi Arabia has been keen to get anti-aircraft missiles into the hands of rebels for years, but had so far been blocked by the US. It is possible they were finally able to do so, and while the Saudis aren’t themselves users of that particular design of missiles, they are common enough on the export market.

US Soldier Killed in North Syria IED

The small, if not always totally certain number of US ground troops in Syria has meant they’ve mostly remained off the front lines, embedded with the Kurdish YPG. The first death among US soldiers in the country was reported today near Kurdish-held Ayn Issa, north of Raqqa.

The soldier was wounded in an IED blast near Ayn Issa, and did not survive. Centcom confirmed the incident but did not offer any particular details on what the soldier was doing at the time. Kurdish forces are advancing southward from Ayn Issa toward Raqqa, however.

While the first US military death in Syria, it’s also the second death in as many months in anti-ISIS offensives, with another soldier killed near northern Iraq’s city of Mosul. In similar fashion, that soldier was killed in a roadside bomb while embedded with Kurdish troops.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What the hell is the US government doing, sending ground troops into Syria?!?

It is a blatant violation of Syrian national sovereignty, not to mention that the duly elected Al-Assad government has not invited the US government for help to get rid of the jihadists, battling his regime.

And of course, the reality that the US government has trained and funded many of these jihadists (the "moderate" guys, right?!?) is not helping the situation.

I have to wonder if our troops are in Syria to assassinate the heads of those units the US supported and trained, in order to regime-change Damascus, before they can blab to the world about who they really work for?!?

Russian propaganda effort helped spread ‘fake news’ during election, experts say

The flood of “fake news” this election season got support from a sophisticated Russian propaganda campaign that created and spread misleading articles online with the goal of punishing Democrat Hillary Clinton, helping Republican Donald Trump and undermining faith in American democracy, say independent researchers who tracked the operation.

Russia’s increasingly sophisticated propaganda machinery — including thousands of botnets, teams of paid human “trolls,” and networks of websites and social-media accounts — echoed and amplified right-wing sites across the Internet as they portrayed Clinton as a criminal hiding potentially fatal health problems and preparing to hand control of the nation to a shadowy cabal of global financiers. The effort also sought to heighten the appearance of international tensions and promote fear of looming hostilities with nuclear-armed Russia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears that the "Hysterical Hillaristas" are pathologically incapable of understanding why Clinton lost the election, so in a last gasp of desperation, have decided to blame Russia, rather than take any responsibility for her criminal history; her temperament; her corruption; her smug sense of entitlement; her having stolen the nomination from Bernie Sanders, by any means necessary; and an absolute void of meaningful policies introduced, coupled with a lack of a good ground game, particularly in the swing states, with which her campaign was run.

Both the government and the presstitute media have lost the trust of the people of this country, by lying consistently, and saying one thing, but doing another; Russia has had nothing to do with that, thank you very much.

Fake news has been very much the "stock in trade" for the presstitute media for some time, and people have grown tired of it. Remember those headlines about Saddam Hussein allegedly having "weapons of mass destruction" and Syria's al-Assad allegedly gassing his own people?!?

These were all proven to be lies, fabricated for the purpose of "selling" the American public more wars and more taxes to support those wars.

That is why people interested in what is really happening in this world are flocking to the independent media, because they understand that they have a better chance of getting the straight story at sites like WRH than they ever would at the New York Times, which appears to have fallen into the gutter of blame-game, pseudo-journalism, from which, apparently, it cannot extricate itself.

When Karl Marx made the observation that "All wars are economic", he was absolutely correct. Wars are not about glory, and honor, and "preserving the American way of life", whatever that may be. Wars are about obtaining and exploiting resources in other countries, to which the US government has no moral right, then making sure they are controlled by American-approved corporations, and sold in US dollars; ultimately, it is just that simple.

And the reality here is that those Congressional representatives who "comfort" bereaved families when a family's loved one has been killed or maimed for life in one of the US government's "military misadventures", can't say to the grieving family, "I'm sorry you lost your loved one, but hey; the US government now controls Iraq's oil, and the oil is sold only in US dollars; isn't that great?!?"

The outrage such a statement would generate, multiplied by every US military member dead or maimed, when the reality of why their loved ones died or got maimed for life sunk in, would cause an exponential outpouring of fury against this government, when enough families realize that they lost the person they loved ...ultimately for corporate profit.

So, if the American government and corporate press want to regain the trust of the American people, just start taking responsibility for your actions, and stop lying to the American people; it is just that simple.

The Post's attempt to blame Russia for Clinton's failure to win the presidency is an after-the-fact verbal tantrum for not having gotten its way, and appears both churlish, and childish.

And my polite suggestion to the Post would be: if you ever wish to be relevant to Americans again, grow up, get over it, and try telling the truth. You may be pleasantly surprised by an uptick in readership if you do so.

Kellogg ‘Breakfast Council’ was made up of paid experts

On its website, Kellogg touted a distinguished-sounding “Breakfast Council” of “independent experts” who helped guide its nutritional efforts.

Nowhere did it say this: The maker of Froot Loops and Frosted Flakes paid the experts and fed them talking points, according to a copy of a contract and emails obtained by The Associated Press.

The company paid the experts an average of $13,000 a year, prohibited them from offering media services for products “competitive or negative to cereal” and required them to engage in “nutrition influencer outreach” on social media or with colleagues, and report back on their efforts.

For Kellogg, the breakfast council — in existence between 2011 and this year — deftly blurred the lines between cereal promotion and impartial nutrition guidance. The company used the council to teach a continuing education class for dietitians, publish an academic paper on breakfast and try to influence the U.S. government’s dietary guidelines.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The other thing that Kellogg's Breakfast Council is not telling is the following:

MAX BEX ALERT: Russian propaganda effort helped spread ‘fake news’ during election, experts say

By Craig Timberg November 24 at 8:27 PM
The flood of “fake news” this election season got support from a sophisticated Russian propaganda campaign that created and spread misleading articles online with the goal of punishing Democrat Hillary Clinton, helping Republican Donald Trump and undermining faith in American democracy, say independent researchers who tracked the operation.

Russia’s increasingly sophisticated propaganda machinery — including thousands of botnets, teams of paid human “trolls,” and networks of Web sites and social-media accounts — echoed and amplified right-wing sites across the Internet as they portrayed Clinton as a criminal hiding potentially fatal health problems and preparing to hand control of the nation to a shadowy cabal of global financiers. The effort also sought to heighten the appearance of international tensions and promote fear of looming hostilities with nuclear-armed Russia.

One of the West’s top points in condemning Vladimir Putin’s “regime” since 2007 has been his alleged suppression of democratic institutions, including an assault on media freedom and imposition of government-directed propaganda.

City Attorney Mike Feuer, along with LAPD Chief Charlie Beck and other officials held a somber press conference the day before Thanksgiving just to address this issue. They invoked the Southern Poverty Law Center's (SPLC) report, claiming that there have been over 400 hate crimes reported since the election.

Potential Trump Education Chief Pick Betsy DeVos is Pro-Common Core, Family Donated to Clinton Foundation

Trump is going down fast!

Citing many of the reported potential candidates’ associations with ardent Common Core supporter Jeb Bush, Tuttle and Robbins note:

DeVos has served on [Jeb Bush’s] foundation’s board of directors. Among these “experts” from Jebworld are alumni of Bush’s Chiefs for Change (Gerard Robinson and Tony Bennett) and former members of Bush’s gubernatorial education team (Hanna Skandera). All of these candidates predictably support progressive education in general and Common Core in particular. Indeed, Bennett was booted out of his position as Indiana State School Superintendent for that very reason. Why would Trump even consider someone coming out of the environment on which he heaped such scorn during the campaign?

West Michigan Politics reported that, like Donald Trump himself, the DeVos family has donated to the Clinton Foundation:

According to a WMP analysis of Clinton Foundation records, the DeVos family donated between $60,000-$130,000.

Obama Administration Pressures European Leaders to Accuse Moscow of “Russian Aggression” against the EU

Sanctions were imposed and renewed. EU leaders and European parliamentarians said they’ll remain in place as long as (nonexistent) “Russian aggression” continues, and the overwhelming will of Crimeans to rejoin the Russian Federation is reversed.

The European Parliament, Council of the European Union and European Commission share EU legislative functions separate from individual member states’ right of initiative power to propose and enact new laws for their respective countries.

In October, the European Parliament’s foreign affairs committee endorsed a document titled “EU Strategic Communication to Counteract Propaganda Against It by Third Parties.”

Without supporting evidence, it accused Moscow of spreading “disinformation and propaganda seeking to maintain or increase (its) influence to weaken and split the EU.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF the European Parliament goes along with this move, it will have signalled to the rest of the world that it has, collectively, lost its reality license.

I read, and frequently link to, the English language versions of rt.com; sputinknews; and tass, because many times, one gets a sense of what the US government is up to that is not reported in the major US presstitute outlets, or reported far later than things actually happen.

Reading the foreign press in English is something I encourage everyone out there to do, including: presstv.com (an Iranian news outlet in English); english.farsnews.com (another Iranian outlet in English); and globalresearch.ca (a news outlet out of Canada).

Democrats Seek to Block Trump's Presidency in US Electoral College Vote

The electors are set to vote for president and vice president on December 19. According to early November's election results, Trump secured the necessary 270 electoral votes and is expected to get the backing of 290 Republican electors. Hillary Clinton is expected to receive 228.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This effort is quixotic in the extreme, because of the number of electors whou would have to be "turned"/threatened/bribed to change their vote, but at the end of the day, it is about attempting to delegitimize Trump and his election, before he even takes the Oath of Office, and deep-six the Electoral college.

End the war in Yemen, Mr. Trump

If Trump does want to bring some positive change to U.S. foreign policy, he should seek to end the war in Yemen.

Saudi Arabia announced on Monday that it would not extend a 48-hour cease-fire in its war there. The war doesn't make many headlines in the United States, even though the U.S. is directly involved in helping the Saudi military fire at targets in Yemen and blockade that country.

The humanitarian effect of the war has been disastrous. Over three million Yemeni people have been displaced from their homes. Another 14 million are threatened with what the U.N. calls "food insecurity," because blockading efforts and the war itself have a devastating effect on the import-dependent food supply of the nation.

But the United States does not have to continue exacerbating the situation. It's an immoral and unjust war on a population that does not threaten the United States.

Trump loses half his transition team in purge of lobbyists

Donald Trump has repeatedly promised to ‘drain the swamp’ of Washington ...
The Trump transition team has lost nearly half its staff and volunteers in a matter of days since instituting a ban on registered lobbyists at the end of last week, the Daily Mail has learned.

‘All the lobbyists are gone,’ said one source familiar with the transition. ‘Lobbyists were the vast majority. Now, today you go in and you could count [them] maybe on one hand.’

The source estimated that the number of staffers and volunteers working on the transition plummeted from around 250 late last week to less than 125 on Tuesday.

West Already Weaponizing Fake News

You really know that masses of people are living within a mind-control matrix when the greatest, most pervasive purveyors of fake news denounce others for the practice.

And yet they do so without the slightest hint of awareness about their own monstrous hypocrisy.

“Fake news” has become a hot issue following the surprise US election victory of maverick business tycoon Donald Trump. Supposedly serious Western media outlets have highlighted the spread of hoax stories purporting to be news reports as having swayed the presidential race in Trump’s favor against his rival, Democrat career politician Hillary Clinton.

They did not bank on this, and were completely and totally confident that their trillions of dollars of money issued by the Federal Reserve and international central banks, control of the National Security State as represented by the Military Industrial Complex, and bought and paid for representatives in the United States Legislature (Congress and Senate), Executive Branch, and Judiciary would have ensured their victory.

So what turned this election around, to upset the proverbial apple cart and deliver the Presidency to Donald J. Trump?

That said, when the Podesta emails failed to reveal a "smoking gun" linkage, the sleuths instead turned their focus to mulitple "pizza" references in Podesta's emails which then led to the speculation that those "pizza" references must be code for something far more sinister.

"Authoritarianism": How the West demonizes strong, popular leaders

In 1944, against a groundswell of concern for the democratic process, FDR ran and won a fourth presidential term, because Americans did not want an untried leader in the midst of two wars. (Unfortunately, Roosevelt died soon after that election, leaving President Truman to formulate the disastrous American policy toward the Soviet Union that brought us Cold Wars I and II.) Today, FDR’s presidency would probably be considered ‘authoritarian’: he pretended not to see Japan preparing to attack Pearl Harbor, so that shocked Americans would finally be willing to declare war on both Japan and Germany.

Beware Of Trump Tolls: Pundits Praise Trump's $1 Trillion Dollar 'Public-Private Partnership' Infrastrcture Repair Plan; Involves Tolls, User-Fees On America's Highways

Many people are discussing how Trump's infrastructure plan will take shape and most importantly, how it will be paid for. Two Trump advisors released a detailed plan last month. Libertarian pundits are praising the public-private partnership plan's use of new tolls and added user fees across the country. But they also note that the fuel tax, which is supposed to be used to repair infrastructure, will not be repealed, since that would be too 'radical.' So essentially drivers are going to be charged and taxed out the ass to drive on roads which we have already paid for and which the fuel tax is supposed to be allotted for. As a small business owner in the transportation industry, I highly oppose such a plan. It would be a giant tax increase, disastrous to the very working man and small business owners who Trump appealed to during his campaign. Do not fall for Fascistic model of big corporations and government in cahoots. NO 'TRUMP TOLLS!'

Russia exerted her “right of reply” to respond to statements made by the US and Sweden which implicated Syrian forces in the use of chemical weapons in that war torn country.

According to the spokesperson for the Russian Federation, such accusations were not only “off topic” at a meeting devoted to biological—not chemical—weapons but were also patently false...

FARGO, N.D. (Valley News Live): Protesters lined the sidewalks of the Veterans Memorial Bridge between Fargo and Moorhead Wednesday night. And it appears the fight in the FM against the Dakota Access Pipeline is not over, the focus now shifting to possibly the West Acres Mall later this week.

“This Friday, lets meet at the West Acres Mall and shut it down” reads part of the Craigslist post titled “Paid protesters needed #nodapl”, urging those opposing the pipeline to gather. Whoever made the post is offering you a nice little chunk of change too. The person behind it says they’ve quit their job and cashed in their 401k, offering $1,000 cash if you quit your job and join them full time in protesting. But if you would rather keep your day job, showing up at the mall could net you a cool $50, the post offering it to any adult even if they don’t agree with the message.

Protester undergoes surgery for injuries

Flashbangs don't produce shrapnel. They are made essentially of paper and cardboard. If the woman has no flash burns and metallic shrapnel removed from her arm you are looking at a pipe bomb not a flashbang.

Wayne Wilansky and several involved with the protest are alleging Sophia Wilansky's injuries were caused by a concussion grenade thrown by police that exploded as it hit her arm while she was delivering water to protesters at 4:30 a.m. The medic council is pointing to a lack of charring of flesh at the wound site and grenade pieces that have been removed from her arm in surgery as evidence.

As might be anticipated, in the wake of Trump’s historic victory — a win that for all sorts of reasons has shaken the Beltway establishment and beyond to its core, and one that political junkies will be fixating on for years — there’s been much handwringing about how so many folks got the outcome so wrong. All of this has been accompanied by the obligatory hyperventilating and existential angst about what Trump’s election portends for the future.

Trump destroys media stars face to face in his golden tower

“The meeting was a total disaster. The TV execs and anchors went in there thinking they would be discussing the access they would get to the Trump administration, but instead they got a Trump-style dressing down,” the source added.

“Trump kept saying, ‘We’re in a room of liars, the deceitful dishonest media who got it all wrong.’ He addressed everyone in the room calling the media dishonest, deceitful liars. He called out Jeff Zucker by name and said everyone at CNN was a liar, and CNN was [a] network of liars,” the source said.

“…he referred to a horrible network correspondent who cried when Hillary lost who [also] hosted a [presidential] debate – which was Martha Raddatz who was also in the room.”

So…You can hate Trump, but if you can’t find joy in this story, you’re in need of a blood transfusion.

FAKE NEWS: All the networks that reported 'You can keep your doctor' or blamed the DNC email hack on the Russians were knowingly spewing fake news

With everybody suddenly talking about "fake news" vs. real news, it's notable to point out that fake news is every network that reported the Russians hacked the DNC emails. That wild, loony tunes conspiracy theory was backed by absolutely nothing. Not a single shred of evidence... yet it was bandied about by the mainstream media as if it were irrefutable fact. Hillary Clinton even claimed, during a presidential debate, that Donald Trump was working with Putin!

The problem, you see, is that The New York Times has openly admitted it is willing to lie to make sure conservative candidates are defeated in elections. So the Times fabricates false facts, then publishes them as if they were true. From there, the rest of the obedient left-wing media repeats the lies, citing the NYT as their source.

Amnesty: UK 'utterly disingenuous' about human rights in Bahrain

British ministers have acted like overexcited cheerleaders for Bahrain’s woefully inadequate human rights reforms, Amnesty International has said, ahead of an expected visit next month by Theresa May on the sidelines of the annual Gulf Cooperation Council summit.

Ministers ought to be confronting the awkward reality that the institutions set up in Bahrain with UK support “are seriously flawed and widely seen as a PR exercises”, Amnesty said.

The bodies, the ombudsman of the ministry of interior and the special investigations unit within the public prosecution, were established in 2012 following a fierce crackdown by the Bahraini government on protests the previous year.

The then foreign secretary Philip Hammond said Bahrain had been making significant reform, telling the House of Commons it was “a country which is travelling in the right direction”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hey, the British government has been historically willing to "look the other way" on torture, when there's money to be made, right, House of Commons and House of Lords?!?

As reported at rt.com in September of 2015, regarding the British Arms Fair:

Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Israel, Bahrain and the UAE will be among the countries participating in London's 2015 Defence Security and Equipment International (DSEI) exhibition next week. RT takes a look at this year’s potential biggest buyers, whose record has often stirred controversy. Customers at this year’s arms fair may not always see eye-to-eye on geopolitics, but one thing they do hold in common is a desire to keep their armories well stocked. Countries such as Bahrain and Israel need guns to put down the meddlesome elements within their borders, while nations like Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates need arms to fight Houthi rebels in Yemen. Over the course of next week, military buyers from around the world will rub shoulders at the world’s biggest arms fair in London’s EXCEL exhibition center to shop around for the deadliest deals. This year’s DSEI will welcome some of the world’s most repressive regimes. Among the guests are Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Bahrain, Israel and the United Arab Emirates, all of which have been condemned for human rights abuses and violating international law.

And if the British and American governments were happy with what your weapons makers sold to these regimes, let me acquaint you with precisely what Saudi Arabia has been doing with these weapons against the people of Yemen: I am sure you are going to be just as happy with the following images:

Images of children killed by Saudi bombings in Yemen

Oh, and of course, there's that Saudi Naval blockade of Yemen, causing the slow, painful deaths of Yemeni children: if you liked the preceding image, you're gonna LOVE this one:

Images of dead and starving Yemeni children, 2016

Oh, and here's an image relating to current "human rights" in Bahrain:

Torture the norm in Bahrain to elicit confessions

So, to the UK and US government: these arms sales to despotic countries which attack schools, hospitals, open air markets, and kill kids, and torture political prisoners has made both governments complicit in war crimes.

I used to be very proud to be an American; but these days, being a citizen of a country addicted to pre-emptive wars; which tortures prisoners of war to obtain false confessions; which abets and enables countries which maim, murder, and torture civilians...this is not who I am, and not what I signed up for, as a citizen of the United States of America.

I think many of our readers will resonate with this thought.

What I have reported, in terms of the British government's glossing over Bahrain's atrocious human rights records, and the US/UK sales of weapons to Saudi Arabia, is no "conspiracy theory"; it is hard evidence and fact, documented by the images and information I have chosen to share with our readers today.

And to my American brothers and sisters, and my English cousins, let me say this; we have to work together, in the most peaceful ways possible, to end this enabling of despots around the world by our respective governments.

FLASHBACK - Hillary Clinton’s ‘KKK’ Smear Against Trump was Democrat Strategy

Let’s get this straight. Calling Hillary Clinton a “bigot” has reporters asking every Republican in sight if Donald Trump has gone too far. But the Clinton campaign releases a video saying Mr. Trump is the candidate of the Ku Klux Klan, and it’s all okey-dokey?

Then again, Mr. Trump has already been likened to Hitler, Mussolini and Stalin. Small wonder there’s a collective ho-hum when Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine says Mr. Trump is peddling “KKK values.”

This is what Democrats do. It didn’t start with Mr. Trump, either. For years Democrats have portrayed the GOP as one giant hate group.

America’s Spiral Into Permanent War Seems More Foolish Than Ever

Danner – an award winning journalist, professor, and member of the Council on Foreign Relations who has covered war and revolutions on three continents – begins Spiral with the aftermath of a 2003 ambush of U.S. troops outside of Fallujah, Iraq.

The insurgents had set off a roadside bomb, killing a paratrooper and wounding several others. “The Americans promptly dismounted and with their M-16s and M-4s began pouring lead into everything they could see,” including a passing truck, he writes. “By week’s end scores of family and close friends of those killed would join the insurgents, for honor demanded they kill Americans to wipe away family shame.”

The incident encapsulates the fundamental contradiction at the heart of George W. Bush’s – and with variations, Barack Obama’s – “war on terror”: The means used to fight it is the most effective recruiting device that organizations like Al Qaeda, the Taliban, the Shabab, and the Islamic State have.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

US foreign policy seems to be engineered to keep these wars of conquest going perpetually; I do not think that this is by accident.

This Pizzeria Is Not a Child-Trafficking Site

When Mr. Alefantis discovered that his employees were getting similar abusive messages, he looked online to unravel the accusations. He found dozens of made-up articles about Mrs. Clinton kidnapping, molesting and trafficking children in the restaurant’s back rooms. The articles appeared on Facebook and on websites such as The New Nationalist and The Vigilant Citizen, with one headline blaring: “Pizzagate: How 4Chan Uncovered the Sick World of Washington’s Occult Elite.”

None of it was true. While Mr. Alefantis has some prominent Democratic friends in Washington and was a supporter of Mrs. Clinton, he has never met her, does not sell or abuse children, and is not being investigated by law enforcement for any of these claims. He and his 40 employees had unwittingly become real people caught in the middle of a storm of fake news.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I told you this was a "Poison the well" setup. The corporate media are going to use this created myth to tarnish the Independent media, even though most responsible Independent media refused to touch it. This would be the equivalent of claiming that The Midnight Sun represents what all newspapers are like, but the Corporate Media are desperate. They can't actually find fake news out here, so they make it up and plant it on us, like they did the "no plane at the Pentagon" nonsense!

Tensions Mount in Northern Iraq, PM Insists Kurds Must Give Seized Territory Back

Since early in the ISIS war, there has been a suspicion that its resolution within Iraq is just going to lead into yet another war, this time between the Iraqi government and the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG). The tensions between those sides are already rising even as the fighting over ISIS’ largest city rages.

Iraq has never been entirely comfortable with autonomous, oil-rich Kurdistan, and the KRG leadership has made public their secessionist ambitions, with their leaders saying that outright independence will be discussed as soon as the ISIS fight is over. Yet the biggest source of tension right now is territory.

On paper, KRG territory consists of an area in northern and northeastern Iraq. Yet during the ISIS war, when Iraqi troops were in full retreat, the Kurdish Peshmerga entered the oil rich city of Kirkuk, and declared it part of KRG territory.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Was this, one has to wonder, the "quid pro quo" of the American government for the Peshmerga's help in fighting ISIS; that in return, they could seize Iraqi territory, and the US government would turn a blind eye to this?!?

It appears that the balkanization of Iraq may well have begun, with this Kurdish move.

As long as the US government controls to whom the oil is sold, and in what denomination, the Kurds most probably have nothing to fear.
