The Nonexistent War on Cops and the Myth of the Epidemic of Unarmed Black Men Being Gunned Down by Cops

In March, Sacramento police officers shot and killed 22-year old Stephon Clark who was holding nothing other than a cell phone. The cops thought he had a gun and he was running through the neighborhood smashing car windows and breaking sliding glass doors and he was high on a number of drugs. The protests afterward shut down a freeway and city streets, barred Sacramento Kings fans from entering the arena, and resulted in smashed car windows and other vandalism.

The Babylonian Talmud’s hateful attitude toward non-Judaic women

Caution needs to be exercised here, however, because the Babylonian Talmud has a low view of women generally, whether Judaic or gentile. Admittedly, Orthodox Judaism's view of non-Judaic females is much lower by comparison with Judaic women, and unreservedly toxic. In Israeli, Judaic-American and Yiddish culture, the popular view of the non-Judaic female is that of a highly promiscuous woman, contrasted with the supposedly more sexually modest Judaic woman. This view was in the news last January when a researcher with the Washington Post sifted through Hollywood director Woody Allen’s writings and discovered this nugget by Mr. Allen: “Unlike the Jewish girl the shiksa is not guilt-ridden—not a complainer—she is abandoned, fun-loving, and above all promiscuous. The shiksa will perform any sex act.” (Cf. Washington Post online, http://wapo.st/2DipDJ5 [January 4, 2017]).

MSM Is Frantically Attacking Dissenting Syria Narratives, And It Looks Really Bad

I write a lot about how, in a political environment that is saturated in disinformation and propaganda, it’s important to ignore people’s words and watch their actions instead to get a clear picture of what’s really happening. You could not ask for a better illustration of this than the recent behavior of the mass media with regard to Syria.

The always excellent Moon of Alabama put out a piece yesterday detailing the immense deluge of attack editorials disguised as information that have been churned out recently about anyone who questions the establishment Syria narrative, including a single day in which no less than seven smear pieces were issued by prominent publications. Seven. In one day.

The Skripal Affair: A Lie Too Far?

The Conservative government decided that it did not need to wait for a police investigation. “The Russians” had tried to assassinate a former intelligence officer turned informant for MI6. Skripal went to jail for that, but was released four years later in an exchange of agents with the United States. Now, “the Russians,” so the Tory hypothesis goes, wanted to settle old scores. Less than 24 hours after the incident in Salisbury, the British foreign secretary, Boris Johnson, suggested that the Russian government was the prime suspect in what looked like an attempt gone wrong to assassinate Sergei Skripal.

Federal court wants to know who, if anyone, is spying on Guantánamo defense attorneys

In a sweeping order, a federal court has instructed the Justice Department to submit top-secret information about suspected eavesdropping on attorney-client meetings at Guantánamo in an appeal of the now stalled USS Cole death-penalty case.

It is not immediately clear what the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit can do with the information. It is also not immediately clear what would happen if the U.S. government refused to furnish the information, invoking national security privilege. The next stop could be the U.S. Supreme Court.

The three-judge panel of Obama appointees was asked to decide a very narrow question: whether two Department of Defense lawyers who quit the terror case over the discovery of a microphone in their meeting room can participate in a Pentagon appellate panel review of their right to resign.

How The Sun made up ‘scary Russian ultras’ captions & deceived Serbian photographer

UK tabloids have been working hard to scare football fans from going to the World Cup, because every Russian is a brutal ultra out for blood. Now The Sun has hit a new low, blatantly taking a photographer’s work out of context.
A headline in The Sun on Saturday thunders: “ULTRA VIOLENCE” in capital letters. The article itself is mostly a collection of photos, which it says “reveal life inside Moscow’s gritty underworld, where hardcore football fans and bare knuckle boxers rule the streets.” Some incredibly insightful captions cooked up by the tabloid are attached.

Unluckily for The Sun, the person who took the photos decided not to stay silent and shared his disappointment with RT. He says the photos have been “clearly taken out of context.”

Over the weekend, Green Beret Tim Kennedy, a former mixed martial arts fighter, livestreamed the 41-minute footage, which shows him being voluntarily waterboarded and answering questions between sessions. He claimed it proved waterboarding was not torture.

“The reason we are doing this ... is for us to have a conversation. Right now, an amazing hero has been appointed to be director of the CIA and because of that, some of the things she has done are being attacked,” Mr Kennedy said about Ms Haspel.

Why are 2/3rds of US children ‘not proficient’ in math? Leading teacher demonstrates: texts LIE about ‘real-world math problems’, stupefy children to tune-out from counting what’s most important (like US .01% admitting they ‘lost’ $21 TRILLION of taxes)

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

hat tip: David Icke

The US Department of Education reports that two-thirds of American school children are not proficient in mathematics (here, here).

In 2016 I wrote an article series about public education that includes a section on math that documents:
1. Math texts lie about “real world math problems” with ridiculous and contrived word problems.
2. Math texts don’t even care to define mathematics or algebra.
3. Algebra 1 fail rates are up to 50% of students, and is connected to the above two points along with less than 1% of adults using algebraic formulas in work.

The outcomes of such “education” include:

1. Americans concluding “math” is difficult and something to tune-out from; stupefying us from counting what’s most important in Life like US .01% “leaders” admitting they “lost” $21 trillion of our taxes (~$200,000 per average US household). Please pause to let that fact penetrate.

The Summer of War and Chaos: US-Israel Plan to Balkanize the Middle East

Tensions are at an all-time high in the Middle East as Israel launched more than sixty missiles at Syria because Israel claimed that Iranian forces fired rockets into the Golan Heights, an Israel-occupied territory since the 1967 Six-Day War.

ran responded to the Israeli claims in a Zero Hedge report:

In the aftermath of one of the most severe Israeli attacks on Syria “in decades,” Iranian lawmakers said Thursday that Iran had no role in the attack, and that Shia nation doesn’t operate any bases in Syria.

Mohammad Javad Jamali Nobandegani, a member of the Iranian Parliament’s national security and foreign policy committee, said Israel’s claim that Iran had provoked Israel by firing first was “a lie,” adding that

“Israel’s history of carrying out unprovoked attacks in Syria has been well-documented.” “Iran does not have military base in Syria,” Nobandegani added

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Trust me, Israel, enabled by the US government will continue to provoke and provide provocations against Iran, until Iran has no recourse but to fight back; at least, that is what Israeli government officials are hoping to attack.

So, one has to wonder; what will Russia do, if there are more attacks against Syria, with the ultimate goal of getting Iran to act militarily?!? I certainly hope that Russia's Vlad Putin has his chess moves in order here, because I think at the moment, he is the only world leader capable of preventing the Middle East from devolving into the chaos Netanyahu and Trump seem to so desperately want to see happen.

Two Interrogations, Gina Haspel and Adolf Eichmann

Haspel Says CIA Won’t Torture Again as Ray McGovern Is Dragged Out of Hearing
Likewise Eichmann was probed about his obedience when “ordered to do something blatantly illegal.” In a response that augured Haspel’s Senate testimony a half century later, Eichmann told his interrogators:

“You say illegal. Today I have a very different view of things…But then? I wouldn’t have considered any of those actions illegal… If anyone had asked me about it up until May 8, 1945, the end of the war, I’d have said: This government was elected by a majority of the German people…every civilized country on earth had its diplomatic mission. Who is a little man like me to trouble his head about it? I get orders from my superior and I look neither right nor left. That’s not my job. My job is to obey and comply.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Watching Ray McGovern, a 78 year old peace activist/grandfather, getting stomped on by Capital Police at the Haspel hearings, in such a way that they deliberately injured him, has given me the clearest image of where my alleged government has gone, and that is full-tilt boogie fascistic.

In terms of international relations, particularly in the Middle East, President Trump has become Netanyahu's ventrilloquist dummy, spouting and supporting everything that Netnayahu says, even when such actions are not for the betterment of We the People, but to support Israel's long-term goals in the region. If President Trump were outsourcing US foreign policy, Netanyahu is the last person on earth who should be guiding it, but at the moment he is.

Israel Baits the Hook. Will Syria Bite?

At face value, for Iran to inexplicably launch missiles at Israel, unprovoked and achieving no conceivable tactical, strategic, or political gain strains the credibility of Israel’s narrative even further.

But it is perhaps published US policy designating Israel as a hostile provocateur tasked with expanding Washington’s proxy war against Damascus that fully reveals the deadly and deceptive game Israel and the Western media are now playing.

For years, US policymakers admitted in their papers that the US desired regime change in Iran and sought to provoke a war to achieve it.

Israel Baits the Hook

The corporate-funded Brookings Institution – whose sponsors include weapon manufacturers, oil corporations, banks, and defense contractors – published a 2009 paper titled, “Which Path to Persia? Options for a New American Strategy Toward Iran,” and would not only spell out the US desire for regime change in Iran but devise a number of options to achieve it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is most likely why we will see a "false flag" in either Syria or Iran, to be blamed on Iran, to give the US/Israeli governments the "justifications" for a war, which Russia's Vlad Putiin is keen to see NOT go forward, as that will diminish Russia's expanding influence in the region, both geopolitically and economically.

I am, for one, rather astonished that no large false flag has yet been concocted to bring such a war about, although God knows, with its attacks on Iranian bases in Syria, the IDF has truly tried to make this happen.

Expect to see more aggression by Israel and/or the United States, until such a war is accomplished.

Haspel Nomination: Torture? Let’s Also Not Forget the CIA’s Core Program of Assassination

Proponents of assassination assert that since the CIA and the Pentagon are assassinating foreigners, that particular restriction doesn’t apply. They say that the Constitution applies only here in the continental United States.

But that’s not what the restriction itself states. The restriction states “No person.” The framers of the Fifth Amendment obviously had a mastery over the English language. If they had wanted the restriction on murder to apply only to American citizens, they would have written, “No person except foreign citizens shall be deprived of life without due process of law.” Their intent clearly was to prohibit the federal government from murdering anyone.

Inside the Cutthroat World of Billion-Dollar Military Supply Contracts

he U.S. Government Accountability Office is expected to rule soon on a disputed contract worth more than a billion dollars to supply food to American forces in the Middle East.

The big-dollar decision will mark the most recent twist in a battle over giant U.S. military logistics deals dating back nearly a decade, and includes allegations of sanctions busting, corruption, and fraud. The ruling could also prove troublesome for the Defense Department, which for years has faced criticism over its contracts with Gulf-owned logistics companies the military has used to feed deployed troops.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, these ghost corporations believe that they can bend the rules with impunity; if there are really any rules to the game, which I doubt, enormously, with this much money on the table.

THIS NEW TOOL HELPS YOU TURN OFF FACEBOOK’S SURVEILLANCE AND RECLAIM SOME PRIVACY

TYPICALLY, AD CAMPAIGNS have the goal of getting people to do something. But the one launched today by the activist group Citizens Against Monopoly is instead intended to show how hard something is to do.

The campaign, called “I’m Not Your Product,” gives Facebook users a step-by-step guide to opting out of as much ad targeting and surveillance as possible. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg told Congress that users have “complete control” over advertising data, during two days of testimony related to the political consultancy Cambridge Analytica, which illicitly obtained information on 87 million Facebook users.

Israel Nudges Trump Towards War With Iran

So what does all this add up to? In pulling the United States out of the international nuclear deal, Trump has heightened tensions with Iran on a number of issues unrelated to whatever nuclear ambitions that country may have. Netanyahu, who hated the nuclear deal from the start because it eased tensions and diminished pressure on Iran, now sees his opportunity to goad the Islamic Republic with pinprick airstrikes against Iranian positions in Syria. With Israel killing Iranians, a retaliatory response is inevitable, which is what Netanyahu wants. In this dangerous escalation of tensions, Trump has positioned his country on the side of Israel and against Iran; this will encourage further provocations by Netanyahu.

You don’t have to be Count Metternich to perceive where this is leading. It’s difficult to see how, under these circumstances, war can be avoided, while it’s easy to see how events could flip out of control and lead to war.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is why Netanyahu is hoping to goad the US government into its own war against Iran and Syria, the costs of which would only be borne by American blood, and American money, which will galvanize Moscow to fight against the US in both Syria and Iran.

Such a war, at this time, would be catastrophic to the regime in DC, because at this time in its history, the US military doesn't have the weaponry; the troop strenth; the money; or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to any conventional war against Russia. Once those in the bowels of power in DC understand this, such a war could go both nuclear, and global.

So what would the current Netanyahu government have to gain from such a war?!?

Control over all the oil fields in the Middle East; that, and with which currency the oil is sold for, are the primary motivating factors here.

Natalie Portman Boycotts Israeli Prize; Right Wing Goes Ballistic

Actress Natalie Portman, a strong supporter of Israel, has come under vicious attack for criticizing that country’s leadership. She now joins the club of scholars, journalists, and political leaders who are vilified by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu or his right-wing cohorts.

Portman was born in Jerusalem, and although her family left Israel when she was only three, she became fluent in Hebrew. She is a dual citizen of Israel and the United States.

While studying at Harvard, she became a research assistant for right-wing Zionist Alan Dershowitz. She directed and starred in a feature film presenting the Jewish side of the 1948 war that established the Israeli state.

So Portman is an unlikely candidate for vilification by conservative Jews. Here’s what happened.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Natalie Portman has just rocketed in my respect level for her, both as an artist, and as a Jewish woman who wants to see peace in Israel. I support her in this, completely.

But I can guarantee her this: there will be a price to pay.

She can now expect that roles will become more difficult to come by, as the Israeli right wing attempts to crucify her, and hang her out to dry, artistically and economically. I can only hope that she, and her husband, have been careful guardians of the money she has earned in previous films, to get them through what may be a difficult economic period for them.

Disaster Looms in North Yemen as Pro-Saudi Forces near Hodeidah

The Saudi-backed Yemeni army took control of the town of al-Bareh, west of Taiz, earlier this week. The fall of this town is less important than what comes next, as the army draws ever closer to the key port city of Hodeidah.

Hodeidah is the lone seaport under the control of the Shi’ite Houthi movement, and by extension is the only port through which humanitarian aid can flow for the entire northern half of the country. A vital humanitarian location, which to pro-Saudi forces is a vital military target.

Successfully conquering Hodeidah would, after all, mean the Houthi territory, including the capital city and many millions of people, would have no access to food or medical aid. This would be an opportunity for the Saudi invading force to really crack down on them.

They envision it forcing a surrender, but it may also could bring millions of malnourished people into outright starvation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Yemeni Deaths by Starvation! Cholera!! Diptheria!! The mutilation and killings, through bombing raids, of infants, toddlers, women, and non-combatants, including the medically fragile elderly! WE JUST LOVE IT HERE IN RIYADH!!" - official spokesman for the B.O.Y., AKA the Butcher of Yemen, AKA Prince Mohammed Bin Salman.

ARMY'S NEW WEAPON: SPECIAL GOGGLES ALLOW SOLDIERS TO SHOOT AROUND CORNERS

The United States Army recently awarded BAE Systems $97 Million in orders for new night vision goggles and thermal weapon sights for the Enhanced Night Vision Goggle III and Family of Weapon Sight-Individual (ENVG III/FWS-I) program. The all-in-one weapon sight system allows soldiers to acquire and eliminate enemy targets through a wireless connection that transmits the weapon’s crosshairs and surrounding imagery directly into the soldier’s goggles.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How cyborgesque the soldiers in the picture appear.

I wish, and of course, I have no voice in this government whatsoever, as I am one of the many, peaceful voiceless, that the US government was spending a lot more of its money on true humanitarian, hard-won, good faith negotiations to avoid wars than investing in weapons like this.

NIMMO: DONALD TRUMP’S NEOCON CONVERSION WAS PREDICTABLE

During the election, I wrote a little ebook titled “Donald Trump’s War on Islam.” In addition to pointing out Trump’s pandering to Islamophobia, I wrote about his association with a number of neocons, including Frank Gaffney and John Bolton, who is now his national security adviser. “I think John Bolton’s a good man,” Trump told the Hugh Hewitt Show.
“I watched him yesterday, actually, and he was very good in defending me in some of my views, and very, very strong. And I’ve always liked John Bolton. Well, we are thinking about it, Hugh [nominating Bolton as secretary of state]. I will say that. We are thinking about it. I mean, the negative is what I told you. But we are seriously thinking about it.”

BEX ALERT - Have Iran and Israël declared a new war?

This fellow jumped the shark a couple of years ago.
This piece seems to follow the Israeli line pretty closely in framing Iran for the Syrian missile strikes.

This morning of 10 May 2018, at approximately 0h30, the al-Qods Force of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard – the Iranian military elite – attacked Israël from its bases in Syria. Israël is the Pentagon’s arsenal in the region (sites 51, 53, 55 and 56). The Hebrew state, choosing to escalate, riposted disproportionally, firing close to 70 missiles on Iranian targets in Syria and attempting to destroy the Syrian anti-aircraft defence system.

U.S. MOVES FORWARD WITH MULTIBILLION-DOLLAR “SMART BOMB” SALE TO SAUDI ARABIA AND UAE DESPITE CIVILIAN DEATHS IN YEMEN

Last month, warplanes belonging to the Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen repeatedly bombed a wedding party in the northern part of the country, killing more than 20 people, including the bride, and injuring dozens of others. In the days that followed, local media published a photograph of a bomb fragment with a serial number tying it to the U.S.-based weapons manufacturer Raytheon.
Now the State Department is taking preliminary steps toward a massive, multibillion-dollar sale of similar weapons to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, three congressional aides, a State Department official, and two other people familiar with the sales told The Intercept.

The State Department has yet to announce the exact details and dollar value of the package, but it is said to include tens of thousands of precision-guided munitions from Raytheon, the same company that was involved in producing the weapons used in last month’s strike.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

PLEASE, LORD, NO!!!

It feels like the entire American public has been at a "slow frog boil", a situation where the frog doesn't know it is in danger of dying, until it is too late; so it is with the normalization of weapons sales to absolute despots, to create a genocide which the B.O.Y. ( the Butcher of Yemen, AKA the Saudi Prince Mohammed bin Salman) is doing in Yemen.

I have rarely felt more completely out of control of my government than I do right now, as our alleged government continues to hurtle, at breakneck speed, toward more wars in the Middle East, most probably culminating in a war against Iran, which probably means a war against Russia.

EXPERTS SAY KEEP AMAZON’S ALEXA AWAY FROM YOUR KIDS

What’s the best way to keep adults from questioning the use of a deeply problematic product? Get them started when they’re too young to question anything. Amazon has a new addition to its line of voice-commanded artificial intelligence Alexa assistants, marketed for use by children as young as 5 years old, who can barely grasp a box of juice, let alone digital privacy. Now, a coalition of children’s privacy and psychology advocates are warning parents away from Amazon’s latest, cutest device, saying it could normalize surveillance and harm children’s mental development.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Until such devices are mandated in the home of US citizens (and we may not be all that far away from something like this happening), Mike and I will continue to avoid this technology as though it were the plague.

UK ACCIDENTALLY ADMITS USE OF HORRIFYING, ORGAN RUPTURING WEAPONS IN SYRIA

At the beginning of the month (May 2018) the British Ministry of Defence seemingly on accident revealed for the first time that they are unloading horrifyingly inhumane, thermobaric weapons out of drones onto the people of Syria: and it wasn’t even in this recent April 2018 escalation of tension, but last year. They are doing it more often than they’d like to admit.

Somehow the use of thermobaric weapons seems less humane than ripping a person to shreds with shrapnel.

The weapons work by igniting oxygen surrounding the weapon.

A cloud of explosive chemicals is released, and upon impact the fuel-air mixture is detonated, exploding the lungs of animals and human beings in the vicinity, not damaging structures much but filling the lungs of all animals with fuel and burning them in what may be one of the most horrifying ways imaginable to die.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable!!!

But then again, please remember that this one of the countries selling bombs and weapons to Prince Salman of Saudi Arabia, which he is using to assassinate infants, women, children, and the medically fragile elderly in Yemen.

This... from the country which gave the world the Magna Carta; how in the name of heaven could it have fallen so morally low as to be doing this in Syria?!?!?

School district shuts down information after Stoneman Douglas shooting

The Broward school district’s repeated, emphatic — and it turns out, false — statements that Nikolas Cruz had not been in a controversial disciplinary program fit a pattern of an institution on the defense and under siege.

Facing significant legal and political exposure over the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, the district has tried to keep information from the public and put out untrue and misleading statements, frustrating parents who say this is the time for maximum transparency.

The district is fighting in court against the release of school surveillance video. It flatly refused to issue any records regarding the shooting to the news media, in a possible violation of the state’s open-records law.

PENTAGON REPORT ON NIGER RAISES MORE QUESTIONS THAN IT ANSWERS

The Pentagon’s newly released 8-page report on the Niger incident had a very clear narrative. From the moment local commanders endorsed the mission to the recovery of the four bodies of slain US soldiers, the report goes out of its way to lionize everyone’s actions, and downplay errors.

This makes sense, because underlying these conclusions is the fact that the Pentagon has no intention of holding anyone to account for the mistakes made. Yet the summary report’s decision to tread very lightly on a lot of potentially embarrassing specifics means that it ultimately raises a lot more questions than it answered.

Fortunately, a lot of those answers exist, as this 8-page version was just a summary of a 180-page full report on the incident. The administration is keeping that carefully secret, however. They say that the report needs to be heavily reviewed, and redacted, before ever being made public.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is, to my best judgment, simply another act, supporting the expropriation of resources, to which the US government, nor multi-national companies which support it, overtly and covertly, have no moral right whatsoever, and we never see real, meaningful compensation of the people from whose lands these resources are, for all practical intents and purposes, stolen.

The deeply colonial attitudes of the US government toward places like Africa, have never really changed; they have just "shape shifted", to make those attitudes appear more morally acceptible to 21st century Americans.

To me, and people who think like me, this is completely, morally unacceptable.

US MILITARY HAS A MEME WARFARE BRANCH

In both the sense of macro images and general memetics, the United States military is now openly exploiting these phenomena for propaganda purposes and meme warfare. I have been warning for years about the destructive nature of dependence on macro images (memes) as a communication device on the internet. It is a compulsive behavior devoid of any merit. It is a swashbuckling smorgasbord of signaling that programs its participants towards ever greater depths of reductionism. And now that they have realized we have conditioned and dumbed ourselves down enough by it, the military wants to weaponize it against us.

MASS ICE RAIDS LEAVE A TRAIL OF MISERY AND BROKEN COMMUNITIES

A MONTH AFTER dozens of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents surrounded a meatpacking plant in Morristown, Tennessee, and detained 97 men and women who worked there, the tight-knit rural community is still reeling, but the initial shock has seeped into a quiet pain, as families adjust to lives without work and their loved ones.

As those shipped to immigration detention facilities across the country started appearing before judges for bond hearings this month, some families were reunited, though still facing deportation proceedings, while others braced for long separations. As of Thursday, 20 of those arrested on April 5 were released — but many more remained in detention. “Tragedy continues to unfold,” said Stephanie Teatro, co-executive director of the Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition. “Some families are getting really terrible news.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As a compassionate human being, I am sorry for these people, but that being said, they needed, very clearly, to understand that this imprisonment, and forced repatriation, could well be the result of their illegal immigration to this country.

If they absolutely did not, in the immortal words of the commedian Ron White, "You can't fix stupid."

Unless and until this lesson gets learned, there will be more of these activities to deport people who have come here illegally.

This country, and various of its states, are being bankrupted through unfunded mandates for the support of illegal aliens, which we can no longer tolerate.

At this part of the 21st century, this is not the country about which Emma Lazarus wrote, "Give me your tired, your poor... your huddled masses yearning to breathe free." The entire nature of work is changing, from mechanical, computer-controlled burger flippers, to entire factories running primarily under computer control.

Unless people have the skills to compete here, they are going to, generally, be an incredible financial burden, and strain, on the country's economic system.

NORAD CONFIRMS RUSSIAN STRATEGIC BOMBERS INTERCEPTED OFF ALASKAN COAST

Two Russian strategic bombers were intercepted by US military aircraft in international airspace within 200 miles of Alaska's coast on Friday morning. NORAD (North American Aerospace Defense Command) confirmed the incident in a statement to CNN, which involved US F-22 stealth fighters escorting the large Russian planes in international airspace away from the US coastline for 40 minutes , according to Reuters .

NORAD and USNORTHCOM spokesman Canadian Army Maj. Andrew Hennessy confirmed in a statement a day after the encounter that, "At approximately 10 a.m. ET, two Alaskan-based NORAD F-22 fighters intercepted and visually identified two Russian TU-95 'Bear' long-range bomber aircraft flying in the Air Defense Identification Zone around the western coast of Alaska, north of the Aleutian Islands."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

They were still in INTERNATIONAL AIR SPACE, folks; this was a little "tit for tat" move, on the part of the Russians, and Alaska was under absolutely no danger of any kind of an attack.

Putin is many things, but one of the things he is definitely not, is stupid.

Erik Prince is the modern architect of private military firms

His latest venture is in training security personnel in China

But he's been all over the world, outsourcing militaries to cheap labor markets

Al Bawaba has provided a partial map to track Erik Prince's activities over the years.

Erik Prince, the brain behind the infamous private military firm Blackwater, is now in China training security forces.

Prince is partially responsible for modernizing the private army for the post 9/11 world, outsourcing militaries to cheap, specialized labor pools and skirting traditional regulations meant to ensure accountability for armed forces.

His journey from hiring mercenaries to help bolster the U.S. occupation in Iraq to China is long, dizzying and includes stops around the world to train Colombian mercenaries to help make a private army for the U.A.E. and outfitting crop duster planes with missiles to be fired at Armenians.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

From a business standpoint, what Prince has done is to have seen a need, and filled it.

But what deeply concerns me here is a lack of standards, where the ends always justify the means; a lack of true morality; and a lack of accountability in the actions of Prince's mercs.

NOT READY FOR PRIME TIME: UK LAW ENFORCEMENT FACIAL RECOGNITION SOFTWARE PRODUCING TONS OF FALSE POSITIVES

Law enforcement agencies have embraced facial recognition. And contractors have returned the embrace, offering up a variety of "solutions" that are long on promise, but short on accuracy. That hasn't stopped the mutual attraction, as government agencies are apparently willing to sacrifice people's lives and freedom during these extended beta tests.

The latest example of widespread failure comes from the UK, where the government's embrace of surveillance equipment far exceeds that of the United States. Matt Burgess of Wired obtained documents detailing the South Wales Police's deployment of automated facial recognition software. What's shown in the FOI docs should worry everyone who isn't part of UK law enforcement. (It should worry law enforcement as well, but strangely does not seem to bother them.)

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The number of false positives are horrific here; unless and until it gets a great deal better, police forces around the world should not be using this technology, period, end of discussion.

Protest Erupts in Germany Calling for Release of 'Nazi Grandma'

An 89-year-old woman, dubbed the “Nazi Grandma,” was arrested on Monday and taken to prison to serve her two-year sentence for holocaust denying. Specifically, she suggested that the notorious Auschwitz concentration camp was a “work camp” and was not used for systematic extermination.

Hundreds of protesters, primarily from the Die Rechte party, rallied in the city of Bielefeld, west Germany, on Thursday, calling for the release of Ursula Haverbeck, according to Deutsche Welle.

Vladimir Putin Praises Chabad

“I would like to extend my holiday greetings to you and to all of Russian Jewry. I wish you a happy Chanukah and all of the very best, along with your family and all of the Jews in Russia. I must say that there are very positive developments in Russia. New Synagogues and Jewish Centers are opening up, and I am thankful to you for that. I hope that our joint efforts will continue to thrive and progress.”

These were the wishes of Russian President Vladimir Putin to Chief Rabbi of Russia Berl Lazar at a private audience that was granted in honor of Chanukah at the Kremlin office in Moscow.

As Putin Becomes One of World’s Most Powerful Players, His Surprising Jewish Connection is Revealed

In the long history of Jews in Russia, the government has rarely been an ally, and often been the source of persecution. Current Russian president Vladimir Putin, however, is a powerful exception, with Jews playing a significant role in his personal history and his inner circle. With the Russian army a major player in the potentially explosive multi-national puzzle unfolding in Syria, this personal element could become an important, perhaps decisive, factor in how the conflict unfolds.

At the International Assembly of Chabad Representatives in 2007, Russia’s Chief Rabbi, Rabbi Berel Lazar, often referred to as “Putin’s Rabbi”, told a remarkable story about the Russian leader, which he heard from Putin himself.

Putin is a Chabad Lubavitch Puppet

While RT and a lot of alternative news outlets portray Putin as some sort of savior, the reality is that he is just playing his role in the Jewish Babylonian messianic soap new world order. Instead of expelling jewish influence in his country after the fairly recent satanic mass slaughter of up to 80 million of his Russian brothers and sisters by jews after the “Bolshevik” revolution, Putin is calling for harder punishments for anti semitic expressions in Russia. He proposed to members of the European Jewish Congress, that Jews facing a rising tide of anti-Semitism and bigotry farther west should move to Russia, where he said they would be better accepted. Readers of the Jerusalem Post have chosen Putin as their person of the year. See full video:

Russia backtracks on Syrian missile sale after Netanyahu visit: report

"For now, we're not talking about any deliveries of new modern systems," the aide, Vladimir Kozhin, reportedly said. The S-300 sales to Syria were raised last month after the U.S., France and the United Kingdom launched a series of strikes on Syria in response to a chemical weapons attack in a Damascus suburb allegedly carried out by the Syrian government.

$21 trillion in taxes reported by US military and HUD as ‘missing’ (~$200,000 per US household) + monetary reform/public banking benefits (~$1,000,000 per household) = criminal lying, looting rogue state empire DEMANDING .01% arrests (obviously, right?)

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

In 2016 I reported on the US Department of Defense (DoD) admitting they “lost” $6.5 trillion of our taxes; ~$65,000 per average US household. In 2017 I updated upon Catherine Austin Fitts’ reporting, with further work by Michigan State University Economics Professor Mark Skidmore and Fitts leading work to examine available DoD and Housing and Urban Development (HUD) reports that total $21 trillion “missing” from just those two areas of government from 1998 to 2015 (here, here, here), that equals ~$200,000 looted from every American household.

The benefits of monetary reform and public banking are ~$1,000,000 per US household in contrast with Americans being told by “leaders” we owe over $20,000,000,000,000 (20 trillion dollars) because the US model is the “best system in the world.”

The above links have abundant video and documentation for this peer-reviewed and published data.

Days Ahead Of Moving Embassy To ‘Capital’ Jerusalem, US Has ‘No Position’ On Israeli Border There

Washington has “no position” on what part of Jerusalem should be controlled by Israel or Palestine, the US State Department said, while still calling the city Israel’s “capital” just days before the relocation of the US embassy.

“We are not taking a position on final status [of Jerusalem] issues, including the specific boundaries of Israeli sovereignty in Jerusalem, nor on the resolution of contested borders,” the State Department said in a statement on Friday. At the same time, in a seemingly contradictory statement, it added that the relocation of the US diplomatic mission “recognizes the reality that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel and the seat of its government.”
***
The dedication ceremony is scheduled to take place on Monday, May 14, the statement confirmed. The event will be attended by US Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan, as well as Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, Senior Adviser Jared Kushner and adviser Ivanka Trump.
