Sandy Hook researcher getting sued for $55M by father of victim ‘Noah Ponzer’: Update

Critically acclaimed Sandy Hook researcher Wolfgang Halbig is getting sued for “$55 million” by Leonard Ponzer, the alleged father of the reported six-year-old shooting victim “Noah Ponzer,” who allegedly was killed by a 20-year-old lone gunman named Adam Lanza along with 19 other children and six staffers during the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. And I say allegedly because that’s what the entire court case is all about.

CNBC : The party’s over: Republicans and Democrats are both finished

How is this a bad thing? The important thing to remember is that all the craziness we're seeing in Washington these days is not just the result of this president's personality or some new level of political anger across the country. An old order that's been in place for generations that kept a lid on the kind of chaos we've seen in recent months has crumbled.

Why Church Attendance is Down? Is the Christian Faith Dead in America?

I can tell you that the Christian faith is not fading in America. It is going in a different direction. Many Christian denominations have abandoned the faith. They have adopted doctrines that are highly questionable when it goes against the bible. This might be a reason people have stopped attending these churches because they betrayed the faith.

SENATE CAMPAIGN FACES SCRUTINY OF STRATEGIST’S WORK FOR SAUDIS

A U.S. Senate campaign faces controversy after the Boston Herald published a story on a key strategist’s participation in a Saudi lobbying campaign against the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA).

Massachusetts state representative Geoffrey Diehl, who is running for the 2018 Republican nomination to oppose incumbent senator Elizabeth Warren, hired Holly Robichaud to serve as a campaign strategist. 28Pages.org previously reported that Robichaud, a political consultant and columnist for the Boston Herald, registered in October 2016 as an agent of the Saudi government.

JASTA cleared the way for 9/11 victims and insurers to sue the kingdom for its alleged support of the September 11 attacks. Robichaud was among some 70 political influencers across the nation pressed into service by Qorvis MSLGroup as the firm scrambled to unleash a broad attack on JASTA on behalf of Saudi Arabia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

During this campaign, Geoffrey Diehl needs to be asked hard questions regarding the joint commision of war crimes by Saudi and US troops in Yemen.

And please do mention that:

1. Saudi troops have methodically killed, and maimed for life, innocent Yemeni children, women, and the medically fragile elderly with their bombing runs.

Yemeni children killed and maimed for life from Saudi bombing runs in Yemen

2. Saudi troops have closed all Yemeni ports, so no food can get in. Now, Yemeni children are starving to death from malnutrition.

Images: children dead and dying from the consequences of malnutrition

3. With starvation comes disease, so cholera has swept up hundreds of thousands in an epidemic of huge proportions.

Images: Yemeni children dying from cholera

You may want to ask Diehl if the cholera was weaponised, courtesy of the Occupied Unhinged Surveilled States of America (The OUSSA, which is the only way I can refer to this country at this point in its history.)

4. The Saudi troops have used depleted uranium weapons, causing massive cancers, still births, and horrific birth defects in Yemeni children.

Images: massive premature births and horrific birth defects, due to Saudi use of depleted uranium weapons in Yemen

You might also want to ask Holly Robichard (politely, NO PROFANITY< NO THREATS, PLEASE!!) faxing the above images to her office) why she is morally comforable, doing work for a country which commits these atrocities. Her contact info can be found here:

FORMER FACEBOOK EXECUTIVE SAYS GOOGLE, FACEBOOK ARE ‘SURVEILLANCE STATES’

Even though he was once an executive at Facebook, Chamath Palihapitiya, CEO of Social Capital Hedosophia Holdings, favors investing in Amazon instead, he told CNBC's "Fast Money: Halftime Report" on Thursday.

President Donald Trump has been a critic of Amazon, tweeting his disdain for coverage from The Washington Post, which is a personal holding of Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos. But Palihapitiya said he thinks that Facebook and Google face more regulatory risk, given the many retailers that compete with Amazon.

"Amazon is a microscopic portion of global consumption today, so ultimately I think it has more room to grow before it invites regulatory overview," Palihapitiya said. "On the other hand, Facebook and Google effectively are surveillance states. And they have so much personal, private information about so many citizens of so many countries."

Google has already had a tussle with regulators in Europe, after the company was slapped with a record fine in one investigation.

Soldiers drafted in and extra armed police on the streets as Theresa May raises terror level to CRITICAL after ISIS claim Tube bucket-bomb attack was carried out by a cell of several jihadis

Armed police have flooded London's streets as the terror threat level was raised to critical amid fears the Parsons Green bomber could strike again, Theresa May announced tonight.

The introduction of Operation Temperer will see soldiers replacing police at key sites including nuclear power plants to free up extra armed officers for regular patrols.

Scotland Yard said it is making 'excellent' progress in hunting the suspected terrorist who set off a crude bucket bomb on a packed commuter train by Parsons Green tube station in west London at 8.20am.
Mrs May said in a statement from Number 10: 'The Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre has now decided to raise the national threat level from severe to critical - this means their assessment is that a further attack may be imminent.'

Minutes later Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley suggested there might have been more than one person involved, stating that police were 'chasing down suspects'.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Prayers for the people of the UK; but most of all, let us hope and pray that the British government doesn't see this as their "golden opportunity" to seize the day (in a very "V for Vendetta" kind of way) to heap even more repression and curtailment of the rights of British citizens.

Solutions: Stop Using YouTube - corbettreport


Published on Sep 16, 2017SHOW NOTES AND DISCUSSION: https://www.corbettreport.com/?p=24009

Every year come 9/11 I see my "9/11: A Conspiracy Theory" video making the rounds again. But this year something marvelous happened. I was able to point people to my BitChute.com mirror of the video. And my Dtube mirror. And my minds.com mirror. And my vid.me mirror. The YouTube crackdown is coming (exactly as I warned you it would), but the YouTube exodus is also here (just as I predicted at the beginning of the year). The only problem is there are too many platforms to keep track of.

Unprecedented Global Risk – No One Cares

To summarise in one sentence: The world is facing risk of major (nuclear) wars, economic and financial collapse, as well as political and social upheaval. The realization of just one of these risks would be enough to change the world for a very long time. We live in a totally interconnected world and the danger is that the domino effect will trigger one event after the next until all the risks become reality.

Suddenly, “De-Dollarization” Is A Thing

For what seems like decades, other countries have been tiptoeing away from their dependence on the US dollar. China, Russia, and India have cut deals in which they agree to accept each others’ currencies for bi-lateral trade while Europe, obviously, designed the euro to be a reserve asset and international medium of exchange. These were challenges to the dollar’s dominance, but they weren’t mortal threats. What’s happening lately, however, is a lot more serious.

The CIA and Its Ally Al-Qaeda — Ed Snowden one day after the 9/11 anniversary

NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden created so much transparency when he leaked information about the NSA’s mass surveillance programs. He wasn’t the first to do so, but thanks to his and many others’ efforts, whistleblowers are now a major gateway to the truth behind the military industrial complex. It makes you wonder, what else does a man like this know? Surely there are more facts he is aware of, but hasn’t revealed. This, however, has not stopped him from retweeting some interesting things over the past few years. One of the latest relates to the CIA’s connection with terrorist organization Al-Qaeda.

Government Won on 9/11… The rest of us lost…

16 years later, the War on Terror™ has yielded hundreds of thousands of dead and injured Americans, Iraqis, and Afghans, ongoing and intractable wars disguised as nation building, the Patriot Act, illegal executive actions, trillions in new federal debt, vastly increased federal surveillance powers, rubber stamped FISA court warrants, TSA at the airports, a useless Department of Homeland Security, overflowing VA hospitals, and increasingly militarized police here at home. More importantly, it has yielded a distressing complacency toward grotesque federal power. -- It has not yielded peace, or liberty, or security. But liberty vs. security was never the choice.

Israel’s Foreign Agents Don’t Register, Why Should Russia’s?

Although RTs viewership in the United States is minuscule compared to major domestic broadcast and cable news outlets, over the years RT has made many enemies in Washington. The network’s slogan, "Question More," and financial resources allowed it to televise stories that US networks, under the perpetual threat of loss of "access" to newsmakers, boycotts and organized pressure campaigns, cannot. Nowhere was this more evident than RT’s relentless coverage of Israel and its US lobby. RT covered Benjamin Netanyahu’s connection to the Arnon Milchan nuclear trigger smuggling ring, the diversion of weapons grade uranium from a toxic plant in Pennsylvania to Israel, and details of a massive Israeli-lobby orchestrated propaganda campaign in the United States. A FARA order could mean RT’s departure from the American scene.

The central role of the military in deciding US foreign policy has its roots in the strategic decisions taken during the Obama-Clinton Presidency. Several policies were decisive in the rise of unprecedented military-political power.

Clearly the US has escalated the pivotal role of the military in the making of foreign and, by extension, domestic policy. The rise of ‘the Generals’ to strategic positions in the Trump regime is evident, deepening its role as a highly autonomous force determining US strategic policy agendas.

The Obama-Clinton legacy facing Trump was built around a three-legged stool: an international order based on military aggression and confrontation with Russia; a ‘pivot to Asia’ defined as the military encirclement and economic isolation of China – via bellicose threats and economic sanctions against North Korea; and the use of the military as the praetorian guards of free trade agreements in Asia excluding China.

The Obama ‘legacy’ consists of an international order of globalized capital and multiple wars. The continuity of Obama’s ‘glorious legacy’ initially depended on the election of Hillary Clinton.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am deeply disappointed in how quickly, and thoroughly, President Trump became compromised by his "Presidential Whisperers", Mc Masters, Mattis, and Kelly, and the roads to war, and potential ultimate American military defeat, upon which they are leading him.

Let us examine just where their advice may be leading this country, and I would politely suggest; this will not be in a positive direction.

Negotiations with North Korea are the only way to avoid a regional, if not a world war; the US has insisted that negotiations have failed, so will not renew them.

NATO continues to surround Russia with its troops; we could very quickly find the US and NATO at war with Russia.

The US and Israel have given an ultamatum to the Syrian government; Assad must go, alongside any Iranians: in light of the fact that Russia was invited by the Syrian government to assist it in clearing out the jihadis, there could be a military confrontation here also.

President Trump and Tillerson have accused Iran of "breaking the spirit of the P5+1 agreement", and are looking for a way to regime change Tehran; Russian military and political leaders have long said publicly, that should Iran get attacked, it will come to its aid mlitarily.

The US is backing Ukraine against Russia, and may be sending offensive weapons to them shortly; this is another way in which the US could get dragged into war with Russa.

Then, there is the back-and-forth issue with China's trade policies, and the US desire to cut down the value of the Yuan, so this government will do all things it deems necessary, including war, to make this happen.

These potential issues, coupled with a monstrous, unpayable deficit, makes the future of this country....questionable.

So please forgive me, if I am not optimistic for the future of this country; nothing looks good

UN Security Council Resolution 2375 on North Korea: Preparation for War?

This formula begins with sanctions under Chapter VII of the UN Charter: approximately eleven sanctions have been inflicted upon North Korea, and four presidential statements. The sanctions are, in themselves aggressive action, intended to weaken and demoralize the intended nation-targeted victim, and ultimately destroy the will, the spirit and unity of the nation. The now twelve sanctions on the DPRK are reminiscent of the words Richard Nixon used for the CIA engineered destruction of the democratically elected government of Salvador Allende in Chile:

“Make the economy scream!!”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US position, over decades, has forced Kim Jung Un and his predecessors into the only posture he believes will save his country; creating a creadible nuclear threat, in order to prevent regime change in Pongyang.

I cannot tell you precisely when this war will start; but China has already announced that if the US fires first, they will stand with North Korea.

That means that we are most likely looking at either a US/ South Korean decap strike against Kim Jung Un, or a false flag, to be blamed on North Korea, to get a military strike against it justified.

But either way, my sense of this is that it will come relatively quickly; within the next couple of months, perhaps.

What the US government dares not wait for, is for Kim to actually acquire or develop the nuclear weapon he wants to use as a threat against US intervention, so my sense is that the action will come sooner rather than later.

Israel’s Foreign Agents Don’t Register, Why Should Russia’s? Can Russia Use Israel Lobby Tactics To Skirt FARA Order?

The Department of Justice has ordered Russia’s U.S.-based RT news network to begin registering as Russian foreign agents under the 1938 Foreign Agents Registration Act. The law requires US-based agents of foreign principals to disclose financial information and activities in regular public filings overseen by a designated DOJ office. Over the years FARA has been amended to exclude bona fide news organizations. The Department of Justice order breaks a long period of unfettered access to the U.S. by foreign press agencies, many directly and indirectly financed by foreign governments.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I personally have a great respect for the veracity of rt.com, and - as readers of this blog know - link to it frequently, because you do get information you just don't get from the US corporate presstitutes, and whorespondents.

They seem to be fact-centric, rather than narrative-centric, which I heartily applaud.

I do hope that they learn from the experience of the Israeli lobby how to equivocate, stall/ delay; get some kind of special exemption; reconstitute; and offer to spy for the various alphabet soup agencies here in the US.

rt.com is one of my "canaries in the coal mine, along with presstv.com (an Iranian outlet in English); sputniknews.com; and farsnews.com (another Iranain outlet in English).

If any of these are offline, meaning their English language blogs are unreachable, I would figure that something big, and nasty, is about to go down, in terms of yet another US preemptive war, fought to defend its economic hegemony.

Gallup Poll: US Majority Backs Attacking North Korea

A new poll from Gallup shows that a majority of Americans, 58%, are in favor of attacking North Korea militarily if the US “cannot accomplish its goals by more peaceful means first.” Americans were split more or less evenly on whether sanctions and diplomacy could work.

This is the first time Gallup has asked about attacking North Korea since 2003. At the time, only 47% favored an attack. The shift in the last 14 years appears to have been greatly along political lines, with an overwhelming 82% of Republicans now backing war, compared to just 37% of Democrats.

The possibility of such an attack has been discussed a lot more this year than any time in decades. Repeated North Korean tests have been presented as a growing threat to the US mainland, with the Trump Administration declaring diplomacy a failure from the start.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looking at this response, I can only conclude that Gallup was either push polling, working in zip codes where a positive outcome to such a question is assured, or polling the criminally insane, or both.

Don't these nincompoops comprehend that if the US shoots first, China will protect North Korea, and a war against China right now is a war we most probably cannot win?!?

These must be the graduates of Common Core, with lots... of participation trophies, but absolutely zero critical thinking capabilites!

Enrollment drops at schools known for ‘social justice warfare’

Universities known for being hotbeds of campus protest and liberal activism are struggling with declining enrollments and budget shortfalls, and higher education analysts say that’s no coincidence.

Take Oberlin College. According to a document leaked to The Oberlin Review, the school’s student newspaper, the small liberal arts college famous for social justice hoaxes has had trouble attracting and retaining students, missing this year’s enrollment mark by 80 and racking up a $5 million budget deficit in the process.

William A. Jacobson, a professor at Cornell Law School who runs the Legal Insurrection blog, said the “most obvious culprit” in Oberlin’s dwindling admissions is “relentless social justice warfare.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why in the name of sam hill did social justice get conflated with "social warfare"?!?

Whatever happened to peaceful ways to achieve social justice?!? Did they just go out with the Whoopie cushion and the dribble glass?!?

And somewhere in a just heaven, Mohatma Gandhi is crying his eyes out!!!

US Plan for New Afghan Force Poses Threat to Civilians

The Pentagon and the Afghan government, in a move intended to increase the size of Afghan security forces without spending too much money, are poised to approve a new irregular combat force, with estimates it could number in excess of 20,000 fighters.

Both groups have dispatched delegations to India to examine the structure of the Indian Territorial Army, an irregular force created for deployment in certain areas where the regular military’s presence would be unpopular.

Afghans are unlikely to welcome this idea, however, because the US already tried this once with the establishment of the Afghan Local Police (ALP), a militia force made up of US-funded warlords given police powers and little to no oversight. Unsurprisingly, this quickly became a flurry of extortion rackets and other widespread abuse.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Hey, but we're still there, 16 years on, and no matter what kinds of horrific abuses are visited upon the Afghani people by this unsupervised, irregular militia, WE'RE STILL HERE, WHICH MEANS WE ARE NOT LOSING IN AFGHANISTAN" - Official White House Souse.

The NSA has all of Clinton’s “lost” emails… but James Comey rejected them in order to obstruct justice

If President Trump’s recent tweets are any indication, former Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) director James Comey isn’t going to be let off the hook for obstructing justice in his handling of the Hillary Clinton email scandal. And more than likely neither will Hillary Clinton herself, as it has now been revealed that the National Security Agency (NSA) has in its possession all 33,000 of Clinton’s “lost” emails, which are just waiting to be exposed.

The spy agency had reportedly attempted to hand these emails over to Comey many months back as part of his so-called investigation into the critical matter. But Comey outright rejected them before proceeding to deny a recommendation that Clinton be prosecuted for her alleged crimes – a move that, in and of itself, has become a scandal all on its own.

Spotlight: Kurdish parliament approves independence referendum on Sept. 25

The parliament of the semi-autonomous region of Kurdistan on Friday approved the independence referendum to be held on Sept. 25.
All the 65 lawmakers attending the session of the 111-seat regional parliament voted in favor of holding the referendum on the independence of the Kurdish region and the disputed areas.

The parliament also decided to invite relevant parties, including Kurdistan's Independent High Elections and Referendum Commission, to conduct the referendum.

According to Tariq Jowahar, parliament media advisor, the session was chaired by the deputy speaker, as Speaker Yousif Mohammed Sadiq did not attend the session since his Gorran Movement is boycotting the session along with the Kurdistan Islamic Group.

Kaka Bashar, a Kurdish lawmaker from the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK), said he regretted that some of the lawmakers boycotted the parliament session, particularly the Gorran Movement, and hoped they will take part in the coming session.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There will probably be a massive, bloody civil war in both Iraq and Syria, in preparation for the existence of an independent Kurdistan, but that is of no matter to those in the Bowels of Power in the Occupied Unhinged Surveilled States of Amerika; Kurdistan will concentrate the oil revenues, and the OUSSA can guarantee a Wesetern-centric government, and an absolute certainty that this oil will only be sold for US dollars.

European Court of Justice Says Member States Can't Ban GMOs Unless Risks Proven

The European Court of Justice has ruled EU Member States cannot adopt emergency measures to ban genetically modified organisms and/or foods without evidence they pose a "serious risk" - although it only serves to make EU rules on GMOs all the more opaque and confusing.

The European Court of Justice ruled September 13 that Member States cannot adopt emergency measures banning genetically modified organisms (GMOs) without evidence of a "serious risk to health or the environment" — although the ruling contradicts European Union legislation.

Hillary’s New Book Now Has A Rating Of 4.9 Out Of 5 Stars (After Hundreds Of 1 Star Reviews Were Deleted)

Hillary Clinton’s new book entitled “What Happened” is the hottest selling book in America at this moment, and thanks to the deletion of approximately 800 one star reviews, the remaining reviews make it sound like it is a masterpiece. As I write this article, “What Happened” currently has an average rating of 4.9 out of 5 stars on Amazon. Of course just like Clinton’s campaign, that rating is completely fraudulent, but if this really is Hillary’s “final chapter” I think that it is somehow appropriate that she goes out this way. The Clintons were frauds from the very beginning, and so a fake rating for a book full of lies about a campaign run by con artists is just par for the course.

UN List of Companies Linked to Illegal Settlements in Occupied Palestine, to be Published Despite Israeli, US Pressure

According to a report published Tuesday by Israel’s Channel 2, the full list will be published in December, and will include some of the biggest firms in the Israeli industry as well as major US companies, a translation of the report from Times of Israel said.

Some of the international companies on the list reportedly include Coca-Cola, TripAdvisor, Airbnb, Priceline, and Caterpillar, in addition to Israeli companies such as pharmaceutical giant Teva, the national phone company Bezeq, bus company Egged, the national water company Mekorot, and the country’s two largest banks, Hapoalim and Leumi.

The list was recently delivered to the Foreign Ministry, the report said.

Last year, the United Nations Human Rights Council passed a resolution to support forming a database of all companies conducting business in illegal Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank, amid fierce opposition by the United States and Israel.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good; it is darn well about time for these companies to be named and shamed.

Yesterday the government reported a “modest” August budget deficit of $108 billion. That’s one month folks. This is another example of how the government and their mainstream media mouthpieces portray horrifically bad, extremely abnormal financial data as normal and expected. They pretend everything that has happened since 2008 is just standard operating procedure. They follow the Big Lie theory to the extreme. The masses have been so dumbed down, desensitized, and taught to believe delusions, they can’t distinguish the abnormal from the normal.

New Documents Show Pentagon Is Shipping Billions Worth Of Weapons To Terrorists In Syria, Trying To Cover Its Tracks

By Brandon Turbeville

While Donald Trump garnered praise from many anti-imperialist activists and researchers after his public announcement that he was ending the CIA’s program of arming terrorists in Syria, it appears much of that praise will be short-lived. Certainly, many expected a sleight of hand from the Trump administration and the Deep State, and now evidence has surfaced showing that the U.S. government has simply shifted the focus of arming terrorists from one agency to another.

Trump never ended the Pentagon program, viewed as a much smaller initiative. However, documents recently revealed are showing that the program is officially set to continue in the arena of $2 billion over the next five or so years. Given the secrecy of the program, however, many believe the monetary value of the weapons shipments is much higher...

Iraqi parliament votes to remove kirkuk governor from office: lawmakers

Iraq’s parliament voted on Thursday to remove the governor of Kirkuk from office following a request from Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, according to several lawmakers who attended the vote.

The decision to remove the governor, Najmaddin Kareem, comes after Kirkuk - an oil-rich province claimed by both the central government in Baghdad and the autonomous Kurdish region in northern Iraq - decided to take part in a referendum set for Sept. 25 on Kurdish independence.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And, following this story, comes the next troubling headline, regarding the fractious state of Iraq:

Iraqi Kurd President says ties with Baghdad are Cut over Sacking of Kirkuk Governer

So, when this comes to a military dustup between the Kurds and the Iraqis, over what has been traditionally Iraqi soil since 1923, where does the US government come in?!? How do they back the Kurds without causing a civil war between the Kurds and Iraqis over this?!?

The short answer is, the Occupied Unhinged Surveilled States of America cannot possibly back them without alienating the Iraqi leadership, big time.

Perhaps someone should have mentioned this possibility before the concept of an Independent Kurdistan, created to balkanize Iraq, was signed off on by the Pentagon, State Department, and White House.

Iraq could well have a new civil war on its hands, insuring a more permanent, and muscular, US troop strenth here.

But hey; this is all about Kirkuk's oil; who controls it is of no real interest to the Deep State in America, as long as the US gets to insure that all the oil in Kirkuk is controlled by US-centric corporations, and is only sold for the US dollar.

U.S. must consider broader Iran threats when formulating new strategy: Tillerson

The United States must consider the full threat it says Iran poses to the Middle East when formulating its new policy toward Tehran, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said on Thursday, adding that Iran had breached the spirit of a 2015 nuclear deal.

Tillerson, made the comments during a visit to Britain to see Prime Minister Theresa May and foreign minister Boris Johnson. The trip was billed as focusing on the relief effort after Hurricane Irma, how to respond to North Korea’s nuclear test, and resolving the political deadlock in Libya.

But he was outspoken in his criticism of Iran when asked whether he believed it was meeting the obligations of a 2015 international nuclear agreement designed to curb an Iranian nuclear program in return for lifting most Western sanctions.

Tillerson cited the preface of the nuclear deal, which calls on Iran to contribute positively to regional security.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Secretary Tillersone, have you absolutely and completely gone barking-dog mad, in making these accusations against Iran?!?

They utterly defy logic.

And what do you mean when you state, with absolutely zero evidence, that "Iran had breached the spirit of a 2015 nuclear deal."

Sir, can you possibly please articulate the meaning of this accusation, using Mr. tougue and Mr. lips?!?

Because as far as I can see, there is no "there" here. It is a speciously meaningless accusation.

And to what specific allegations are you referring, regarding their "malicious" use of cyberactivities?!? You make this allegation, as though the US and the NSA isn't doing this kind of action, this 24/7 against countries we don't very much like.

And let's stop, please whining and moaning about Iran's "aggressively developing ballistic missiles"; as you well know, Secretary Tillerson, ballistic missiles were absolutely never a part of the P5+1 agreement to begin with.

Yes, the world knows that Israel has been cheerleading for regime change in Tehran for a very long time; but I would very, very much like you to think seriously of the broader imlications of such a US pre-emptive war against Iran.

And please understand; Israel wants regime change in this country, but only at the costs of American blood and American money.

And what, Secretary Tillerson, is Russia going to do when we invade Iran?!? Is the Duma going to hold hands, and collectively sing "Kuymbya"?!?!?

I think not, particularly in light of the reality that Russian military and civilian leadership has stated, time and time again, that should Iran be attacked, Russia will come to its aid mlitarily.

Are you really contemplating war with Russia over Iran?!?

Because the ultimate outcome of such a war may well be both catastrophic... and irreversible.

I would sincerely like to believe that these remarks about Iran were for foreign, rather than domestic, consumption, plumbing the depths of what the UK would be ready to do in participating in a US attack against Iran; because if you believe, sir, for one millisecond, that you have brought the American people on board for a war against Iran with these stupid accusations which have utterly no basis in fact, when we have been so lied to about the reasons for the wars in Libya, Afghanistan, and Iraq, you are very, badly mistaken.

How NBA star Dennis Rodman came to stand between the world and nuclear war

Earlier this year Rodman’s agent said that his client helped convince North Korea to release American college student Otto Warmbier before his death. Now, nearly everyone else involved with Warmbier’s release has denied that Rodman had much to do with it, but the mere fact that he was in position to take credit is proof enough that he has become the unlikely face of US-North Korean relations. As North Korea expert Ken Gause said to Time that “he’s not the best ambassador we could have but it’s who we have.”

In just about any other situation, Gause would be correct in describing Rodman as an utterly inappropriate ambassador – as the man himself admits “[Kim and I] ride horses, we hang out, we go skiing, we hardly ever talk politics and that’s the good thing.” Rodman also fundamentally lacks the tact and restraint required in most diplomatic situations, and has a tendency to make events all about himself.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, we are past the point where Rodman could possibly do any real good, and as of 1 September, Americans are forbidden from going there; it appears that the Deep State of the Occupied Unhinged Surveilled State of Amerika is utterly ready to declare war on both North Korea...and the world.

High Ranking CIA Agent Blows Whistle On The Deep State And Shadow Government

Shipp had a series of slides explaining how the deep state and shadow government functions as well as the horrific crimes they are committing against U.S. citizens. Some of the revelations the former CIA anti-terrorism counter intelligence officer revealed included that “Google Earth was set up through the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency and InQtel.” Indeed he is correct, the CIA and NGA owned the company Google acquired, Keyhole Inc., paying an undisclosed sum for the company to turn its tech into what we now know as Google Earth. Another curious investor in Keyhole Inc. was none other than the venture capital firm In-Q-Tel run by the CIA according to a press release at the time.

Old Think — Even young people in MSM don’t get it.

The Fake News phenomenon has simply been met with a guerrilla version of it. Mike Cernovich peddling PizzaGate on twitter is just as corrosive as the New York Times making up stories about Trump. It’s important to remember that the news has always been fake. In the 18th century factions had their newspapers promote false narratives in favor of their faction. It is the source of the Sally Hemmings stuff. Yellow Journalism was a thing before radio existed.

Over 6,000 US Troops Set for Deployment to Afghanistan

Adding on to the 3,500 troop escalation already announced for the Afghan War, officials are now reporting that another 6,000-plus ground troops from Fort Carson are also slated for a future deployment to the country.

It’s part of the increasingly complicated way in which the US reports, or rather, doesn’t report, on troop levels and details in its ongoing wars. The report on the Fort Carson troops includes a lot of questions, including timing of deployment, and how many are new deployments,as opposed to replacing existing troops simply rotating out of the country.

Those are big questions, and there are simply no answers. The Pentagon isn’t officially confirming any of the details on this matter, and while those familiar say the deployment is likely to happen sometime in early 2018, even that is just speculation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sec-Def Mattis, a word, please: in this 16 year old war, where there have been episodic surges and drawdowns, how, in the name of Heaven, will this time be ... different?!?

The American people honestly deserve an intelligent, reasoned answer to this question from its leadership.

Because sir, I would like to politely remind you: doing something precisely the same way, over and over again, yet expecting a different outcome, is one of the classic definitions of insanity.

House backs $1.2T spending bill with more money for military

The Republican-led House on Thursday passed a sweeping $1.2 trillion spending bill that provides billions more dollars for the military while sparing medical research and popular community development programs from deep cuts sought by President Donald Trump.
The vote was 211-198 for the massive measure that wrapped the 12 annual spending bills into one in advance of the end of the budget year on Sept. 30. Even though the Senate still must act, the government will keep operating through Dec. 8, thanks to legislation Congress passed last week and sent to Trump.
House members spent the past two weeks debating the measure’s $500 billion for domestic agencies. GOP leaders then merged that domestic spending package with an earlier House measure that would give record budget increases to the Pentagon and provide a $1.6 billion down payment for Trump’s wall along the U.S.-Mexico border that he repeatedly has insisted Mexico would finance.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: it funds present and future wars of aggression to control, as far as possible, the tangible wealth of the entire planet, to which this country has absolutely no moral right.

Trump Extends Post-9/11 State of Emergency

President Trump has become the third president over the course of 16 consecutive years to extend the “temporary state of national emergency” which was imposed in the wake of the 9/11 terror attacks.

The state of emergency gives the president considerable leeway to bypass legal limits surrounding the military and the use of the National Guard and reserve troops. Exactly how much this power is used is itself unclear, as presidents have for years ignored a legal requirement to offer reports to Congress every six months on the matter.

Officially, Presidents Bush, Obama, and now Trump have defended the extension on the grounds that terrorism still exists and is a thing. Legally speaking, however, the emergency declaration was intended to give the president flexibility until Congress had time to act after 9/11.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It was painfully predictable, from a President who steadfastly believes that "war is good for business", and that perpetual war is the only way for the Occupied Unhinged Serveilled States of Amerika can maintain its financial hegemony.

Yemen's Houthi leader says could target Saudi oil tankers if Hodeida attacked

Yemen's Houthi leader Abdel-Malek al-Houthi said on Thursday his group could target Saudi oil tankers should Saudi Arabia attack Yemen's main port at Hodeida.

"We could target Saudi oil tankers and we could do anything, we have not done this before," he said.

In a televised speech, the leader also said his group's ballistic missiles were capable of reaching the United Arab Emirates' capital of Abu Dhabi and anywhere inside Saudi Arabia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A couple of years ago, Saudi Arabia's Prince Salman must have thought that a military attack against Yemen, to eradicate the Shia Houthi rebels there, would be a "walk in the park" for the Saudi military.

However, thousands of deaths of innocents, and immesurable joint Saudi-US warcrimes later, coupled with successful attacks against Saudi Arabia proper, if he is in any way sane, he may just be thinking differently.

I have no way in which to estimate the Houthis' weapons capabilities; but this rhetoric demonstrates that they are in this battle for the long haul.

FBI PAID $100K+ FOR CONCOCTED TRUMP DOSSIER DURING ELECTION; JOHN MCCAIN HELPED BROKER CLASSIFIED DEAL WITH COMEY

FBI insiders say fired FBI Director James Comey and Andrew McCabe, deputy FBI director, used Bureau funds to underwrite the controversial dossier on President Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential election, sources confirm.

And the deal to dig dirt on a presidential candidate was put together with the help of Sen. John McCain, sources said.

These new revelations in fact might be the worst kept secrets in Washington, D.C. but now rank-and-file FBI agents want the Bureau to come clean on its relationship with the author of the problematic Trump dossier, former British spy Christopher Steele.

True Pundit first received intelligence from FBI sources in March that the Bureau had struck a financial deal with Steele in 2016.

Federal law enforcement agents have since divulged to True Pundit:

Steele was likely paid in the $100,000 range by the FBI for the research. Perhaps even more.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF these allegations are, in fact, true, they are a very depressing set of examples of people in power wanting to destroy the "outsider candidate, Trump, and stack the media and election against him, in favor of Clinton.

Every sordid character in this despicable action should be sacked, and given jail time for attempting to destroy what truth there is the democratic process in this country (which, unfortunately,is only a Kabuki-like remnent of its former self).

But, of course, these being members of the Occupied, Unhinged Surveilled Amerikan Deep State, that will most probably happen when hogs discover they are aerodynamic.

ISRAEL SECURITY FORCES ARE TRAINING AMERICAN COPS DESPITE HISTORY OF RIGHTS ABUSES

IT’S NOT UNCOMMON for residents of America’s most heavily policed neighborhoods to describe their local cops as “an occupying force.” Judging by where many U.S. police forces get their training, the description seems apt.

Thousands of American law enforcement officers frequently travel for training to one of the few countries where policing and militarism are even more deeply intertwined than they are here: Israel.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Occupation and dictatorship go hand in hand, as very much witnessed in Israel.

But forgive me, isn't this country supposed to be a democratic republic, or have I inadvertently confused it for some other enlightened county, where the will of the people actually translates into to the law of the land?!?

Oh, yes, I see now; this country, within the last 40 years, has morphed into the Unhinged, Surveilled States of Amerika, where independent thinking, and logical, non-violent criticism has been nearly snuffed out of most of its citizens to the point where perpetual war is the normal state of affairs, and hardly anyone speaks out against the atrocities and war crimes the USSA commits in the name of its global hegemony.

Perscription anti-depressants are both peddled, and consumed, at an alarming rate in the USSA; and fashion, computer games, and politics of utterly no real value for the average citizen of the USSA are sold to the American people just as the wars are sold to us by the corporate media presstitutes and whorespondents.

In the USSA, no dissenting, peaceful, logical voices should be heard; this is why Google is pushing down results of searches which neither tow the line demanded by the major corporations (which actually choose our allegedly "elected" officials) nor regurgitate the false narratives required by Deep State members of the Bowels of Power in this country to support their agenda.

And that agenda, right now, is perpetual war with which to defend Amerikan hegemony.

Welcome to the Occupied Unhinged Surveilled States of Amerika; and trust me, those who have studied Israeli policing will insure that occupation is martially maintained "with extreme prejudice."

SAUDI ARABIA CRACKS DOWN ON DISSENTING CLERICS AMID RUMORS OF CROWN PRINCE’S RISE TO THRONE

SAUDI ARABIA ARRESTED A trio of prominent clerics last weekend, a sign that the kingdom may be preparing for the formal ascendance of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, known as MBS, who is a key decision-maker on the country’s domestic and international affairs but is technically subservient to his father, King Salman.

Salman al-Odah, Awad al-Qarni and Ali al-Omary were arrested with little explanation over the weekend, but activists suspect that their failure to follow MBS’s hawkish line on Qatar played a role in their imprisonment.

Human rights activists told the Wall Street Journal that al-Odah’s arrest came after he declined to come out in support of the Saudi government’s actions against Qatar.

On September 8, al-Odah tweeted a fairly banal message hoping for reconciliation between the kingdom and Qatar. “May God harmonize between their hearts for the good of their people,” he wrote:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks like the bloodlust of The Saudi Warlord, and Butcher of Yemen, Prince Salman is pushing him, yet again, over the edge, and will soon declare war against Qatar.

What he has accomplished in Yemen, I am quite certain he wants to accomplish in Qatar:

Images: Yemeni children assassinated or maimed for life, courtesy of Saudi bomgings

Images: Yemeni children dying from complications of malnutrtion, due to Saudi military blockading the ports

Images: starving Yemeni children now dying of cholera

To all Qatari parents; however you can manage it, get your kids out of that country and into a safe haven; what awaits Qatar, in this madness, will be precisely the same fate as you have seen for the Yemeni children, in the images above.

Journalist Uncovers White Helmets Used Another “Victim” For Stage Prop Before Switching Him For “Little Omran”

By Brandon Turbeville

After a known terrorist with the Nourredine al-Zengi faction (the group responsible for beheading a twelve-year-old boy on camera), along with his compatriots in the Nusra propaganda wing known as the White Helmets snapped a picture of an injured and bewildered little boy in the back of a hospital, Little Omran Daqneesh became the “symbol of Syria’s suffering” throughout the Western media. However, soon after the gullible Western public was sucked into the “Olympics of the feels,” it was revealed that the photo had indeed been staged by the White Helmets looking to produce a piece of propaganda that would sufficiently tug on the heartstrings of the American public who typically have no strings to pull on when it comes to their countries’ imperialist agenda...

Meanwhile, those who truly wield power in our society continue to laugh all the way to the bank.

Google's depression tool could lead to dangerous over-treatment and addiction to antidepressants, expert warns

Professor warns that the tool will lead to over-diagnosis, over-prescribing and misuse of data.

He says Google worked with antidepressant drug-maker Pfizer to make quiz that gives false positives.

Others say the tool is low-risk, and in line with national efforts to screen for depression.

Google's screening tool that enables people to check online whether they are clinically depressed could do more harm than good, one expert has warned.
Last month, the tech giant released a self-assessment quiz, called the Patient Health Questionnaire-9 (PHQ-9), which pops up as a result for the search query 'Am I depressed?' on a computer or cell phone.

Google developed its test in partnership with the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) but one professor claims that the quiz could just lead to over-treatment of depression amid the US's opioid epidemic.

THE HOUSE TELLS SESSIONS’ JUSTICE DEPARTMENT IT WILL NOT STAND FOR CIVIL ASSET FORFEITURE

The U.S. House sent a strong message of rebuke to Attorney General Jeff Sessions on civil asset forfeiture last night. The House adopted three amendments offered to an appropriations bill that prohibit the Department of Justice from using funds to increase certain federal and local forfeiture practices.

Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) summed up the problem with civil asset forfeiture in one sentence. “It is an unconstitutional practice that is used to violate the due process rights of innocent people,” he said from the House floor.

This bipartisan showing was in response to Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ July announcement to expand the use of civil forfeiture. Sessions’ action was a reversal of a 2015 Attorney General Eric Holder policy that prevented local law enforcement from using federal forfeiture laws to circumvent more restrictive state forfeiture laws.

The House votes also signaled that Congress remains committed to comprehensive civil forfeiture reform.

WHAT HAPPENS TO YOUR LUNGS, BRAIN, KIDNEYS, HEART, TEETH, & MOOD WHEN YOU DRINK DIET SODA

Diet soda has come under intense scrutiny over the years, and for good reason. It has been found to leave people at risk for weight gain, type 2 diabetes, and cardiovascular disease, among other serious consequences.

According to Susan E. Swithers, a professor of psychological sciences and a behavioural neuroscientist:

Public health officials are rightfully concerned about the consequences of consuming sugar-sweetened beverages, such as soft drinks, but these warnings may need to be expanded to advocate limiting the intake of all sweeteners, including no-calorie sweeteners and so-called diet soft drinks. Although it seems like common sense that diet sodas would not be problematic, that doesn’t appear to be the case. Findings from a variety of studies show that routine consumption of diet sodas, even one per day, can be connected to higher likelihood of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, metabolic syndrome and high blood pressure, in addition to contributing to weight gain.

Right "Explodes In Anger" Over Trump's New Immigration Push

Trump's base woke up to a fairly surprising flip-flop this morning from the White House on DACA and the infamous, beautiful border wall which was discussed repeatedly on the campaign trail throughout 2016. It all started when Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi released the following statement after their White House dinner with the President last night:

"We had a very productive meeting at the White House with the President. The discussion focused on DACA. We agreed to enshrine the protections of DACA into law quickly, and to work out a package of border security, excluding the wall, that's acceptable to both sides."
That statement was followed up by a tweet storm (we covered it here) from the President this morning which seemingly revealed his complete support for DACA and referred to 'The Wall' as a "renovation of old and existing fences and walls" rather than the "physically imposing" yet "aesthetically pleasing" structure that he repeatedly promised his supporters.

North Korea Preparing For ICBM Launch: Japan Press

According to the Nikkei, citing an unidentified Japanese government official, the missile is being prepared for launch has engine for liquid fuel, suggesting missile is an ICBM. It adds that the missile is said to be fueled already, ready for launch. As Japan's Asahi further notes, the North Korean missile prep may be for a Hwason 14 ICBM and adds that missile prep is said to have started on Wednesday.

Is Israel Is Getting Ready for a Major War? And No One Is Talking About It

Beginning last Monday, soldiers and reservists alike practiced simulating a 10-day-long war with Hezbollah, an Iranian-sponsored Shi’a militant group located mainly in Lebanon. Israel even prepared two field hospitals, as well as trucks and helicopters for evacuating simulated casualties.

According to the Independent, the drill began with small border skirmishes and escalated into a full-on war with the aim of completely obliterating the Lebanese opponents. Even the soldiers playing the role of Hezbollah were to be dressed in the group’s traditional attire and will don their yellow and green flag.

“The purpose of the drill is to test the fitness of the Northern Command and the relevant battalions during an emergency,” one IDF officer told Haaretz.

The drill, known as the “Light of the Grain” drill, took 18 months to plan. It utilizes fighter planes, ships, submarines, drones, cyber and canine units, and Israel’s missile defense system.

 Sanction America, Not North Korea

Ideally, sanctions should be abolished, prohibited for any reasons.

They’re counterproductive, achieving pain and suffering alone for ordinary people in targeted countries, nothing else.

As long as they’re permitted, legally by Security Council members alone, illegal unilaterally, sanction America for its high crimes of war and against humanity, not North Korea, threatening no other countries - even though a US veto would block adoption.

A symbolic 14 - 1 statement would send a powerful message, especially if enough world community nations no longer are willing to put up with endless US wars on humanity.

The leadership of any country threatened by Washington would be foolhardy not to seek powerful weapons and munitions for self-defense.

Abandonment of powerful weapons programs by Iraq and Libya led to their rape and destruction by US-led aggression - a lesson well understood in Pyongyang.

Why Russia Won't Help More on North Korea

Moscow’s assistance to Pyongyang has emerged not out of a desire to promote its nuclear program, but because Vladimir Putin, the president of Russia, sees Kim very much like he see his own country: victims of a U.S.-led international system that tramples on their choices and sovereignty. Russia is itself under international sanctions intended to punish Moscow for its military actions in Ukraine. For Russia, sanctions that successfully force North Korea either to alter its military choices or lead to a change in its leadership would set a dangerous precedent—the possibility of regime change anywhere is never to be encouraged.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The precise same kinds of situations in which these North Koreans find themselves, exist for Americans held in the corporate, for profit prisons in this country!

Pakistan kicks out medical charity MSF from country's tribal region

Pakistan on Wednesday told medical charity Medecins Sans Frontieres’ (MSF) to stop work and leave its impoverished tribal areas that border Afghanistan, the health organization said, ending its 14 year stay in the volatile region.

MSF works out of two health facilities in the Kurram district of Pakistan’s Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) region, which has been plagued by militancy over the past decade and was the location of many U.S. drone strikes targeting commanders from al Qaeda and other militant groups.

Though security has improved in FATA in recent years, sectarian militant attacks, primarily targeting Shi‘ite Muslims, still occur. Twin blasts in the Kurram’s most populous town, Parachinar killed more than 75 people in June.

Local officials say MSF provides essential healthcare facilities in FATA, an area with some of Pakistan’s poorest healthcare and lowest literacy rates.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Does Pakistan's Prime Minister Shahid even begin to comprehend how lousy the optics are on this move?!?

United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia Threaten U.S. Interests And Mideast Peace With Attack On Qatar

Oil-rich Saudi Arabia wants to rule the Persian Gulf and the United Arab Emirates wants to rule Riyadh, indirectly, at least. Both states desire to impose their will on neighboring Qatar, whose independent foreign policy irritates entitled elites not used to criticism let alone opposition. But so far the two nations’ efforts have done little more than strengthen Qatar’s independence and expose their own hypocrisy. Washington should continue to mediate, while making clear that the fault mostly lies with the aggressive and repressive Saudi-Emirati axis.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The question has to be asked; what precisely is Saudia Arabia and UAE actually prepared to do, in this move against Qatar, and what is their timetable?!?

IF the US and Kuwait are incapable of mediating this mess, then it is only a question of when the bombs start dropping on Qatar.

And I have to wonder; what are the orders given to US military commanders at
the 21 billion dollar Al Udeid Air Base in Qatar, should such a scenario unfold?!?

Justice Dept Orders Russia’s RT to Register as a ‘Foreign Agent’

The latest in a series of moves which seems destined to worsen US-Russian relations, the Justice Department has ordered Russia’s RT television news network to register itself as a “foreign agent,” forcing it to make broad disclosures on contacts within the United States.

This registration is an idea that had long been pushed by Congressional Democrats who accuse RT of being a “propaganda” network. The Foreign Agent Registration Act was meant to target foreign lobbyists and politicians.

It’s virtually unheard of to force a journalistic outlet to register, and the move was quickly condemned by RT as “overreaching.” That the Justice Department made such a move at all is a surprise, and indicative of continued hostility toward Russia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, let me get my head around this: RT, a very fact-centered, generally logical blog, to which I link frequently, is demanded to register as a foreign agent, YET AIPAC'S SERIAL NON-COMPLIANCE WITH THIS LAW IS "NO BIG DEAL"?!?!?

AIPAC is still our biggest foreign agent

The Pentagon's $2.2 Billion Soviet Arms Pipeline Flooding Syria

he defeat of Islamic State in Syria is reliant on a questionable supply-line, funnelling unprecedented quantities of weapons and ammunition from Eastern Europe to some 30,000 anti-ISIS rebel fighters.

Armed with AK-47s and rocket-propelled grenades fresh from state-owned production lines and stockpiles of the Balkans, Central Europe and increasingly the former Soviet Union, these US-backed troops are spearheading the battle to reclaim Raqqa, the capital of the so-called caliphate, and liberate other areas of Syria held by ISIS.

But the flow of weapons to these Pentagon-backed militia depends on misleading official paperwork, an investigation by the Balkan Investigative Reporting Network, BIRN, and the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project, OCCRP, has uncovered.

The operation has been criticised by arms transfer experts and even worried officials in Berlin, who have seen large quantities of weapons passing through US military bases in Germany on the way to Syria.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The "good reason" is the alleged fight against ISIS in Syria; however, the "real reason" for drowning these jihadists in Soviet-era weapons is, again, still, the American goal of regime change in Damascus.

I am having a Picard double-face-palm, at warp speed, upon reading this!!

It is just a matter of time before US and Russian forces tangle in Syria; and that outcome could get very nasty, and very quickly.

Hungary Takes NY Times to School on Europe’s Migrant Crisis

On September 8, the New York Times Editorial Board published an opinion piece titled “Hungary Is Making Europe’s Migrant Crisis Worse,” which censured Hungary for its “inhospitable attitudes” toward migrants, while also excoriating President Trump for his “scandalous example” on immigration and dissing Britain’s Brexit vote to leave the European Union.

In his written reply to the Times’ editors, government spokesman Zoltán Kovács takes issue with the newspaper’s presumption in trying to teach Europeans how to solve their migrant crisis while continuing “to show just how much they don’t understand.”

Israel's Netanyahu says will meet Trump in New York next week

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Sunday he would meet U.S. President Donald Trump later this month during a visit to New York, where he will address the United Nations General Assembly on Sept. 26.

Netanyahu spoke to reporters accompanying him on a trip to Latin America before his plane left Tel Aviv for Argentina on Sunday night. He will also visit Colombia and Mexico before heading to New York.

In Washington, the White House did not initially respond to a request for a comment on a meeting between the two leaders.

"From Mexico I will go to New York to speak at the United Nations General Assembly and there I will meet my friend, President Donald Trump," Netanyahu said.

He added best wishes "to all our friends in the U.S. to overcome these difficult hours (during Hurricane Irma)."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Netanyahu is desperately trying to "misdirect" the Israeli public, and the world, from the burgeoning cases of corruption against himself, and his wife, which are looming large against them right now.

One has to wonder just what kind of hubristic rhetoric he will spew against both Iran and the Palestinian people, when he has his "bully pulpet" moment at the UN; I think we can be reasonably certain of "more of the same" as we heard last year, and the years before.

But more immediately, I am very concerned about what this "Israeli war whisperer" will be telling President Trump, about Iran being a clear and present danger, and MUST be dealt with IMMEDIATELY....of course, but only at the costs of American blood, and American money.

I would like to politely remind President Trump that both civilian and military leaders in Russia have been uneqivocal in stating that should Iran be attacked, they will go to its aid militarily.

The cost/benefit ration of such a war, for the US, would be horrifically bad, as any sane number-cruncher at the Pentagon will tell you, as starting such a war would absolutely not put the US on the moral, right side of history: I hope President Trump understands this, and is able to refute Netanyahu's hysterics on the issue of the US going to war against Iran with cold, hard, logic.

The Iranians have not started a war in over 200 years.

There hasn't been a year going by for the last 20 years that Israel hasn't popped off and shelled something, most recently a base in Syria.

With an airstrike, Israel "punctuates" its opposition to Syria Cease-fire Pact

Iran has a constitution. Israel does not.

Iran is a signatory to the NNPT, meaning that its nuclear program is inspected by the IAEA.

Israel refuses to become a signatory to the IAEA, or have its nuclear program inspected.

This, BTW, Mr. President, makes Israel ineligible for any US military or financial aid under the Symington Amendment.

You're welcome, Mr. President!!

Dear Jamie Dimon: Predict the Crash that Takes Down Your Produces-Nothing, Parasitic Bank and We’ll Listen to your Bitcoin “Prediction”

By Charles Hugh Smith

This is the begging-for-the-overthrow-of-a-corrupt-status-quo economy we have thanks to the Federal Reserve giving the J.P. Morgans and Jamie Dimons of the world the means to skim and scam the bottom 95%.

Dear Jamie Dimon: quick quiz: which words/phrases are associated with you and your employer, J.P. Morgan? Looting, pillage, rapacious, exploitative, only saved from collapse by massive intervention by the Federal Reserve, the source of rising wealth inequality, crony capitalism, privatized profits-socialized losses, low interest rates = gift from savers to banks, bloviating overpaid C.E.O., propaganda favoring the financial elite, tool of the top .01%, destroyer of democracy, financial fraud goes unpunished, free money for financiers, debt-serfdom, produces nothing of value to society or the bottom 99.5%.

Jamie, if you answered “all of them,” you’re correct...

At least 50 killed, over 80 injured in gun & bomb attacks in south Iraq (GRAPHIC VIDEO)

At least 50 people have been killed and over 80 more injured in a pair of gun and car bomb attacks in the southern Iraqi city of Nasiriyah, Reuters reports, citing health officials. Iranian media said that among the victims were Iranian pilgrims.
In the first attack, a group of three or four gunmen entered a restaurant off the Dhi Qar highway and began shooting at random, hitting at least fifty people, several media reported.

Shortly afterward two suicide bombers, including one driving a car rigged with explosives, blew themselves and the car up at a security checkpoint nearby, Iraqi officials told AFP.

The survivors are being treated at the al-Batha and Nasiriyah hospitals, but due to the nature of some of the injuries the death toll is expected to rise, the director of the city's Health Directorate, Jasim al-Khalidi, told Reuters.

Jassem al-Khalidi, a senior health official, told the TV channel that more than 87 people had sustained injuries in the attacks.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The violence, post George Bush's homicidal war against Iraq, continues apace.

But for some in the Pentagon, and other places in the Bowels of Power in the Unhinged Surveilleds States of Amerika, the continued violence is "justification" for a permanent contingent of American troops, to guarantee that Iraq's government stays western centric; and that all its oil is only paid for with American dollars. As reported at antiwar.com last month:

Yet while Pentagon officials are keen to brag about their accomplishments in the war, mostly centering around having killed massive numbers of people, they are also quick to dismiss the idea that the war is anywhere near over, or that even if it was “won” is some shape or form it would mean US troops coming home.

Rather for many Pentagon officials the ISIS War has been an opportunity to restore the major military presence in Iraq they didn’t want to lose at the end of the last occupation, and officials have been very clear that they view the Iraq deployment as permanent.

Spain threatens to arrest over 700 Catalan pro-referendum mayors

- Spain's public prosecutor on Wednesday ordered a criminal probe of over 700 Catalan mayors who are cooperating with an October 1 independence referendum deemed illegal by Madrid.

The move increases the pressure on Catalan officials just one day before the pro-separatist camp officially kicks off its referendum campaign in the Mediterranean port of Tarragona.

Furious at the decision to instigate a probe, Catalan municipal associations called on all the region's mayors to protest in Barcelona on Saturday to show their "rejection of a Spanish judicial system that goes after the media, ballot papers, ballot boxes... and now mayors".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF the Spanish government believes that such actions are going to stop the "Catalexit" from Spain, there are seriously underestimating the Catalonians.

New U.N. Report Cites Terrorists, Blames Assad For Chemical Weapons With No Real Evidence

By Brandon Turbeville

The United Nations is marching ahead with its task of acting as the Anglo-Financier administrative arm of the world corporate-financier government structure with its recent “report” aimed at the Syrian government. According to Western corporate media outlets who are reporting the story with unconcealed glee, the United Nations “war crimes investigators” produced a report blaming the Syrian government for chemical weapons attacks at Khan Sheikhoun and nearly two dozen other incidents.

The United Nations team stated that there had been 33 incidents investigated; 27 were the fault of the Syrian government and perpetrators had not yet been identified in the other seven. In other words, all of the alleged chemical weapons incidents were the fault of the Syrian government except for the ones they have yet to determine.

However, there are many problems with the stance of the report, its methodology, and its purpose...

North Korea Threatens To "Sink" Japan With Nuclear Weapons, "Reduce The US To Ashes"

Less than a day after US officials observed North Korea moving mobile missile launchers and engaging in preparations for what appears to be another missile test, a North Korean state committee has stepped up its belligerent rhetoric, threatening to use nuclear weapons to “sink” Japan and reduce the US to “ashes and darkness” after the UN Security Council passed new sanctions against the isolated country earlier this week, Reuters reported. The North also accused the US of “cooking up” the latest restrictive measures against it and demanded that the US be beaten “to death as a stick is fit for a rabid dog.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The rhetoric, we're used to by now; the question is, what will Kim Jung Un actually do, and when will he do it?!?

38north.org had the following article in its blog yesterday:

North Korea’s Punggye-ri Nuclear Test Site: Satellite Imagery Shows Post-Test Effects and New Activity in Alternate Tunnel Portal Areas

China is limited in what it can actually do to calm Kim Jung Un down, but the statement has been made that should the US attack first, China will defend North Korea.

So I have to wonder; what "sacrificial lamb" spot in the US has been chosen by those in the Bowels of Power in the Unhinged, Surveilled States of Amerika to make it appear that North Korea hit the US first, to give cover for a multi-pronged attack against it?!?

If Hawaii has been chosen, it would not be the first time that has happened, because of its remote location relative to the continental US.

WHY ARE US UNIVERSITIES ARMING THEMSELVES WITH GRENADE LAUNCHERS?

A program that supplies university police with surplus military equipment is enjoying a renaissance under Trump and Sessions. Most of the military gear is going to campuses in states with the highest poverty rates, where the weapons will be used not only to repress student protests but also to perpetuate racial and class divides between campuses and their surrounding communities.

Sending an ominous signal to student protest movements nationwide, universities across the US are once again able to equip their police forces with castoff military gear, tying them ever more intimately into the military-industrial complex.

In August, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced at a Fraternal Order of Police convention that Program 1033 would resume providing ex-military equipment to police organizations, including university police departments.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

ARE YOU FLIPPING KIDDING ME?!?

It appears to me that this militarisation of college and university policing is to "boil the frog slowly", in terms of getting students to accept that this is precisely what policing on campus - and in the rest of their lives - should be; that even the smallest of incidents needs to be met with brutal, overwhelming force.

And to all students and the parents and friends who love them, and happen to read this blog, "1984" was not an instruction manual!!</em>

STUDIES LINK HEAVY METALS TO DISORDERS AND DECLINING IQS IN CHILDREN

A “silent pandemic of neurodevelopmental toxicity” is disabling a generation of children around the world.

This is the verdict of neurology experts Philippe Grandjean and Philip Landrigan in a 2014 report in Lancet Neurology. The staggering tsunami of developmental disabilities now affects at least one in six children in the U.S. and millions more worldwide. Two new studies suggest that the most common of these illnesses—autism spectrum disorder (ASD), attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and tics—are related to each other and may share common causation. The culprit? Environmental toxins, particularly heavy metals.

About 11% (or one in nine 4-17-year-olds) have received an ADHD diagnosis—and in some states, as many as 19%. The most recent ASD estimates in the U.S., from 2014 data, report a prevalence of one in 45 children, representing a “significant increase” compared to 2011–2013.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF these numbers are true, it is very worrying for future generations of humans.

But I wonder if the study was created to take some of the heat off the problems with vaccines, which have been documented to cause massive developmental challenges in vaccinated kids, including severe autism.

ADL CAMPUS GUIDE DESCRIBES HOW TO BLOCK EVENTS ABOUT PALESTINE

The ADL (Anti-Defamation League) has just launched a new initiative for college students called “ADL CAMPUS: Tools for Dealing with Anti-Semitic and Anti-Israel Incidents on Campus.”

This resource contains much useful information about addressing anti-Semitism, endorses such valuable principles as freedom of speech and non-violence, and recommends that students talk to others who may hold different perspectives.

It also, however, contains some deeply problematic components for anyone who believes that human rights and justice should apply to all people without exception.

Unfortunately, the ADL does not share this belief. While it announces prominently, “We protect the Jewish people and secure justice and fair treatment to all,” in reality the ADL supports Israeli injustice against Palestinians.

Its recent campus resource exemplifies this, and distorts facts and words in order to do so.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Conflating any logical, reasonable, and documentable criticism of the nation of Israel for how it treats the Palestinian people with anti-semitism is Orwellian to a point that I just cannot describe, and massively combats the foundational principal of free speech, and equal rights for all people.

The Pentagon's $2.2 Billion Soviet Arms Pipeline Flooding Syria

The Pentagon is on a spending spree as it scrabbles to amass vast quantities of Soviet-style weapons and ammunition. But it’s running into problems sourcing them, and is using misleading legal documents to disguise their final destination: Syria.
