MAX BOOT, PRO-REGIME CHANGE, PRO-WAR NEOCONSERVATIVE, NOW FORMER REPUBLICAN, BASICALLY COMPARES TRUMP’S GOP TO THE NAZI PARTY

What is going on here? Seriously? The Russia thing isn’t working so now they are trying to play up the “Trump is a Nazi” and you are a horrible, deplorable person if you like him in any way? That’s the tack this week?

My Declaration of Incivility: Media Call Us Nazis. Celebs Call Us C*nts. Dems Scream ‘F*ck You’

All around us the organized left (establishment media, Hollywood, and Democrats) are lamenting the loss of civility. Of course, to express this lament, they must first take a break from calling us “Nazis,” calling us “cunts,” and screaming “fuck you” throughout the halls of the U.S. Capitol.

Oh, and they must also take a break from bullying us out of public spaces and calling for more even more mobs to be vigilant so we face a “life sentence” of bullying.

With no professional consequences, NBC News is not only calling Trump a “Nazi,” NBC News is smearing his supporters as “Nazis” — and I do not mean figuratively.

DEBUNKING THE FIRST PIECE OF NONSENSE IN SKRIPAL 2.0

Elizabeth Gardens in Salisbury is a rather lovely park. Situated next to the river, and overlooking the Water Meadows, it is a wonderful place to take an early morning stroll, and then to walk along the town path, where you get a wonderful view of the towering 13th Century gothic cathedral from the very spot where Constable painted his famous Salisbury Cathedral from the Meadows.

Yet, like the centre of the City, it is now apparently a place synonymous with poisoning. According to latest reports, it is apparently the place at which Dawn Sturgess and Charlie Rowley became poisoned on Friday 29th June. This from The Mail:

“There Will Be A Financial Crash… And Trump Will Be Blamed”

IN THESE SENTIMENTS, SIR, I AGREE TO THIS CONSTITUTION, WITH ALL ITS FAULTS, IF THEY ARE SUCH; BECAUSE I THINK A GENERAL GOVERNMENT NECESSARY FOR US, AND THERE IS NO FORM OF GOVERNMENT, BUT WHAT MAY BE A BLESSING TO THE PEOPLE IF WELL ADMINISTERED; AND BELIEVE FURTHER, THAT THIS IS LIKELY TO BE WELL ADMINISTERED FOR A COURSE OF YEARS, AND CAN ONLY END IN DESPOTISM, AS OTHER FORMS HAVE DONE BEFORE IT, WHEN THE PEOPLE SHALL BECOME SO CORRUPTED AS TO NEED DESPOTIC GOVERNMENT, BEING INCAPABLE OF ANY OTHER.

– BENJAMIN FRANKLIN

OUR CONSTITUTION WAS MADE ONLY FOR A MORAL AND RELIGIOUS PEOPLE. IT IS WHOLLY INADEQUATE TO THE GOVERNMENT OF ANY OTHER.

– JOHN ADAMS

I’m of the opinion that many today are throwing the “baby out with the bathwater” when they claim the conservative versus liberal (right vs. left) construct is phony, or bogus.

Exposed! How Britain’s anti-Semitism scaremongers operate

"This article about the British charitable organisation, the Campaign against Anti-Semitism (CAA), and its officers, Gideon Falter and Steve Silverman, examines events in England but ought to serve as a cautionary message for Canadians and Americans.

"The article will delve into the corrosive methods of the CAA; review the manner in which this ultra Zionist group “discovers” anti-Semitic “incidents”; examine their inaccurate statistical “studies” and see how they seek to intimidate political parties, venues, the press and others; and look at the court cases which the CAA has prosecuted. In the guise of fighting anti-Semitism, the CAA has managed to manoeuvre British society into abdicating its core liberal values, intimidate the prosecutorial and judicial system, and silence criticism of Israel in both social media and the mainstream media.

Watchdog Wants Maxine Waters Investigated For Inciting ‘Mob Violence’

The conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch has accused Rep. Maxine Waters (D-California) of inciting “mob violence” with her fiery ‘resistance’ rhetoric, calling on the House to investigate her on ethics grounds.

How smart TVs in millions of U.S. homes track more than what's on tonight

Samba TV has struck deals with roughly a dozen TV brands — including Sony, Sharp, TCL and Philips — to place its software on certain sets. When people set up their TVs, a screen urges them to enable a service called Samba Interactive TV, saying it recommends shows and provides special offers “by cleverly recognizing onscreen content.” But the screen, which contains the enable button, does not detail how much information Samba TV collects to make those recommendations. 67

Samba TV declined to provide recent statistics, but one of its executives said at the end of 2016 that more than 90 percent of people opted in.

The big draw for advertisers — which have included Citi and JetBlue in the past, and now Expedia — is that Samba TV can also identify other devices in the home that share the TV’s internet connection.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This just sounds more than a little creepy to me.

SENATE ACCEPTS TRUMP RUSSIAN COLLUSION FAIRY TALE AS FACT

It’s official. Donald Trump colluded with Russia to fix the election. This is now set in stone despite a complete lack of evidence anything of the kind actually happened. It’s accepted by the “intelligence community” and the Senate. Even President Trump believes—or says—the Russians had something to do with influencing the election, defeating Hillary Clinton, and sending millions of liberal Americans into panic attacks and other mental disorders.

‘Reprehensible!’ Footage of ‘cesspool’ district Maxine Waters represents, but doesn’t live in, shocks Twitter

Rep. Maxine Waters doesn’t miss an opportunity to screech against President Trump but many are blasting her for ignoring her own “cesspool” of a district.

Footage supposedly from the California Democrat’s district 43 revealed eye-popping images of the shameful state of life in the Los Angeles district that Waters has represented for nearly three decades.

No telling how the congresswoman continues to be reelected when she allows her district to exist in this state while she comfortably lives in a multi-million dollar mansion in a wealthy L.A. neighborhood.

“How’d she afford a place like that?” Fox News; Tucker Carlson asked in a segment one year ago. “How does she keep getting reelected despite not living in her own congressional district? ”

That district, according to Carlson, had the “second highest percentage of African-American residents” in the state while the neighboring area where Waters actually resides has only a six percent black population.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I cannot believe that the voters in her district don't want to live and work in better conditions than we see in this video; but the primaries in "safe" Democratic districts are usually more crooked than is a dog's hind leg.

POLICE CHIEF TRIES TO BLAME NEWSPAPER SHOOTING ON THE LOSS OF SOCIAL MEDIA MONITORING TOOL, BUT IT DOESN'T ADD UP

The acting police chief of the Anne Arundel County Police Department said a controversial tool could've helped investigators track down the Capital Gazette gunman before his deadly rampage. Geofeedia is a social media intelligence tool that helps identify a user’s location based on where they post to their social media account. Acting police chief William Kampf said his department lost access to the tool, which has limited their abilities to track individuals like suspected gunman Jarrod Ramos.

No, The New Mexican President Did Not Tell His People To 'Flood The Border"

Full texts and a fun contest at source.

He was taking up the cause of those who had chosen to immigrate, not telling others to join them. The context is the aftermath of the focus, on both sides of the border, on migrating families and the fate of children separated from their parents by what he calls "arrogant, racist, and inhumane" policies of the current administration.

This news seems faked on purpose. Google translate and a couple brain cells were all that was needed to do better...

Like the local high school principal telling all the students they had the right to raid their next door neighbor's liquor cabinet. And demand that it be stocked...

The Skripal Incident Big Lie Won’t Die

Father and daughter Skripal “miraculously” recovered from whatever caused their illness – kept virtual prisoners by Britain so they’re not free to tell tales, Russia all along denied access to its own citizens.

Five months after the incident, the Big Lie persists. On Monday, the Sun published the latest twist to the deception, its report clearly planted by UK authorities, claiming two Kremlin-connected hit men poisoned the Skripals, attempting to assassinate them, according to Scotland Yard.

Jul 05 10:01

Wheel Out the Skripal Story Again

Just as the World Cup had forced the British media to grudgingly acknowledge the obvious truth that Russia is an extremely interesting country inhabited, like everywhere else, by mostly pleasant and attractive people, we have a screaming reprise of the “Salisbury incident” dominating the British media. Two people have been taken ill in Amesbury from an unknown substance, which might yet be a contaminated recreational drug, but could conceivably be from contact with the substance allegedly used on the Skripals, presumably some of which was somewhere indoors all this time as we were told it could be washed away and neutralised by water.

Evidence suggests the militarization of police forces leads to more civilian deaths.

Why do some police officers resort to lethal force so quickly? Why do police kill, even in situations where their lives—or the lives of others—do not seem to be in danger? The militarization of American law enforcement has become the topic of much discussion—among scholars, in the media, and in the general public—over the last several years, and has become the target of those who desire reforms to reduce the number of civilian deaths. However, most of the scholarship on militarization is limited, either focusing on certain specific behaviors that result from militarization, on the existence of police Special Response Teams (also known as Special Weapons and Tactics or SWAT teams) as a way to capture the spread of militarization, or on county-level, but geographically narrow and theoretically limited, use of federal programs that allow police departments to acquire surplus military equipment.

UK POLICE CONFIRM 2ND CRITICALLY ILL COUPLE POISONED WITH NOVICHOK NERVE AGENT

Update: And here come the 'Russians did it' allegations...

Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu said the substance which has left two people critically ill in Amesbury was nerve agent Novichok.

The same agent that was allegedly used to poison former Russian spy Sergei Skripal just a few miles away (who miraculously survived the 'deadly' nerve agent along with his daughter).

So why are "the Russians" now poisoning some random - non-former-Russian spies - British people?

One can only wonder at the timing of this second seemingly random poisoning with a deadly nerve agent coming so close to President Trump's scheduled summit with President Putin.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF the same lab at Porton Down which is now testing the substance which made the people ill, and cannot state that it is definitively NOVICHOK (which they were unable to do with the sample from the Skribal case), then the headline is absolutely skewed when it screams "UK POLICE CONFIRM 2ND CRITICALLY ILL COUPLE POISONED WITH NOVICHOK NERVE AGENT". Because unless the UK chemical lab can logically confirm this, the UK police have no business making that statement.

But I will tell you what the timing of this incident has been most likely engineered to poison; the atmosphere of the meeting between Trump and Putin in Helsinki in a couple of weeks.

This has the very embarrassingly juvenile fingerprints MI5, MI6, and those of Teresa May, fighting to not lose power by her very awkward handling of the Brexit, all over it.

Network Coverage of Wildfire Ceases Once Suspect Is Revealed as Illegal Alien

Network news outlets have abruptly stopped covering the Spring Fire in Colorado, which previously had been receiving consistent airtime since late June. The dearth of new reporting is not due to the story having flamed out; on Monday morning the fire was declared the largest in the state, and it remains only five percent contained. Interestingly, coverage across ABC, CBS, and NBC ceased completely once it was revealed that the man responsible for starting the wildfire was an illegal alien.

FIRST OF ITS KIND UNIVERSITY STUDY PROVES WITHOUT A DOUBT THAT YOUR PHONE IS SPYING ON YOU

For years, conspiracy theories about smart phones listening to users without their permission to show them advertisements have abounded. While some researchers have shown this could happen, a first of its kind study just found something far more insidious. Academics at Northeastern University have just proven that your phone is recording your screen—as in taking video—and uploading it to third parties.

For the last year, Elleen Pan, Jingjing Ren, Martina Lindorfer, Christo Wilson, and David Choffnes ran an experiment involving more than 17,000 of the most popular Android apps using ten different phones. Their findings were alarming, to say the least.

It wasn't about race, 'the police were not doing their job right': Lancaster man shot with Taser

The 27-year-old Lancaster, Pennsylvania, man shot in the back with a Taser as he sat on the curb said the incident wasn't racially motivated -- it was incompetence.

"I don't believe it was driven by race -- it was driven by the fact of the matter that the police were not doing their job right," Sean Williams told "GMA." "At the end of the day, I followed every directive that was given to me, and I feel as though no matter what race you are, what color you are, what background you are, that should not be done to you as a man or as a woman or whoever you are.

"Nobody should be Tased in the back in a situation where they're not doing nothing wrong. If they're following every directive that's being given to them, there's no reason that somebody should get stunned in the back to the point where they could be traumatized for the rest of their life."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would really like to know just where the hell Jeff Sessions is, every time an incident like this happens, yet he continues, in the most tone dear manner humanly possible, to declare that there is a war against cops, rather than a war on innocent Americans.

This is about as fascist a police state activity as it gets, folks!

Who’s ‘dumb’? Reuters got lost in Russian embassy tweet on new Novichok claims

Reuters has been caught spreading fake news after falsely reporting that the Russian embassy in the Netherlands said that Britain was “dumb” to drum up another Novichok story during the World Cup.

In a rush to break the latest development in the new Novichok saga, it appears that Reuters has jumbled the facts in a tweet.

Novichok strikes (but doesn't kill) again, and all the old questions re-emerge

A friend of the couple described Rowley becoming increasingly ill over the course of the day, before finally being taken to the hospital. There, the supposedly deadly Novichok gave doctors enough time to treat the couple for a completely different diagnosis: the medics initially believed that the couple had taken contaminated drugs (Rowley is a registered heroin addict).

Facebook Removes Declaration of Independence Excerpt for ‘Hate Speech’

Facebook removed an excerpt from the U.S. Declaration of Independence, claiming the text violated the social network’s policies on “hate speech.”
The Liberty County Vindicator had been uploading the Declaration of Independence in parts to their Facebook page, only for the tenth part to be removed by the social network.

The text was as follows:

He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.

Nolte: Brian Ross and 15 Others Whose Anti-Trump Mania Cost Them Their Media Jobs

Brian Ross lost his job at ABC News this week, and Donald J. Trump is still president. That is just a fact.

Yep, despite the media’s Russian collusion hoax, last week’s fabricated border outrage, fake news addicts like Ross, and Jake Tapper’s nightly snit-fits, Donald J. Trump is still president.

Better still, in the media’s unhinged zeal to destroy Trump, including Ross, 16 liars, 16 left-wing activists, 16 losers who pretended to be objective journalists have — you know, unlike President Trump — lost their jobs.

If you do the math, that averages to about one per month since Trump took office. With that kind of pace, if Trump wins a second term, we could see a total of 96 fake news addicts carrying a box to their Prius.

'Curiouser and Curiouser': Salisbury, the Skripals & the epic failure of the British Fairy Tale

"Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast" – Alice in Wonderland. The problem for the British narrative in the Skripal case is that one would have to believe way more than six things.

Let me start with the latest: the taxpayer-funded purchase for more than one million pounds of the homes in Salisbury of the British spy Sergei Skripal and the police officer Detective Sergeant Nick Bailey. This purchase is explained as necessary on security grounds and – some suspect – may be followed by the destruction of both houses and all the evidence therein.

EXCLUSIVE: Polish Lawmaker Speaks Out After Cathy Newman’s Latest Car Crash Interview on Illegal Migration

Polish lawmaker Dominik Tarczy?ski has stuck to his guns following a frank interview on the migrant crisis with Cathy Newman, insisting his government will not take a single illegal migrant because that is what his party promised before the elections.

The Channel 4 presenter, who became infamous online following her viral interview with Canadian scholar Jordan Peterson, had demanded to know how many “refugees” Poland had taken, to which the Law and Justice Party (PiS) politician replied: “Zero.”

“And you’re proud of that?” Newman demanded.

“If you are asking me about Muslim illegal immigrants, none, not even one, will come to Poland,” Tarczy?ski repeated.

“We took over two million Ukrainians — who are working, who are peaceful — in Poland. We will not receive even one Muslim, because this is what we promised… this is why our government was elected; this is why Poland is so safe, this is why we have not had even one terror attack,” he said.

Israel seeks to muzzle witnesses of its crimes

Israel is trying to silence people who witness its atrocities.

The Knesset, Israel’s parliament, is considering a bill that would criminalize filming or recording Israeli soldiers and publishing the content.

The law calls for a five-year prison sentence for those who film “to harm the morale of Israel’s soldiers or its inhabitants,” and a 10-year prison sentence for those who film to “harm the security of the state.”

The group Reporters Without Borders questioned the basis on which Israeli morale or national security would be determined.

“In a country in which much of the political class already accuses the media and NGOs [nongovernmental organizations] of anti-patriotism or treason, isn’t there a danger that such a provision would prevent the dissemination of video footage simply because it wasn’t very flattering?” Reporters Without Borders stated.

Helicopters in 19 seconds: Las Vegas shooting

As Intellihub reported in mid-November of 2017, Helicopters were airborne behind Mandalay Bay during the 1 October shooting.

The following video posed to the John E. Hoover YouTube channel focuses on a 19 second span of the “First Shots” video which was captured on the night of the shooting and uploaded to the Archangel Studios YouTube channel the following day. In the video, three helicopters can be seen lurking around below the roof lines of Mandalay Bay, the Delano, and Luxor. However, the caveat is the fact that none of the helicopters are showing up on radar, as reported by Intellihub Founder and Editor-In-Chief Shepard Ambellas during his October 2017 appearance on The Alex Jones Show.

EXCLUSIVE: Why Everything the Western Media Tells You About Venezuela is Lies

Over the course of two tumultuous decades, the US government has determinedly endeavored to destabilize, undermine and ultimately depose the democratically-elected government of Venezuela without pause. First they came for Hugo Chavez, then his successor Nicolas Maduro.

One wouldn't be able to discern this iniquitous reality from mainstream Western news reporting, however. Alan MacLeod, an academic specializing in media theory and analysis — and member of Glasgow University's respected Media Group — set out to discover why.

Facebook Algorithm Flags The Declaration Of Independence As “Hate Speech” - Mac Slavo

Over the last couple of years major social media, news and video platforms have been actively engaged in the censorship of what they believe to be fake news and information. Often spearheaded by third-party review organizations known to have biased views, there have been countless examples of unpopular speech and commentary that has seen its distribution suppressed or outright banned.

While there is most certainly a human element involved in the review and flagging of information, mega Silicon Valley conglomerates have also implemented automated systems to identify potentially hateful and repulsive content.

To give you an idea of the kind of automation in play and what words and ideas are being identified as running contrary to the principles of media aggregators and distributors, consider that Facebook recently banned America’s founding document from being posted.

Meet Hadrian, The Brick Laying Robot That Will Make Construction Workers Obsolete

Across the US, cities are independently passing measures to implement a $15 minimum wage - or mandating higher wages with an eye toward one day achieving that goal. But low-wage workers who are celebrating their fatter paychecks should enjoy the feeling while it lasts...because the more expensive workers become, the faster employers will work to replace those human workers with robots who can do the same job for a fraction of the cost.

UK Couple Falls Critically Ill In "Major Incident" Miles Away From Skripal Poisoning

UK counterterrorism detectives and local police are investigating after a couple in their 40's fell critically ill from exposure to an unknown substance, just a few miles from where former Russian double-agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter were poisoned with a suspected nerve agent in early March - exactly four months ago.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please, Lord, tell me that the UK's Teresa May isn't going to try a "Skripal II" episode, to attempt to again demonise Russia, misdirect from her own geopolitical woes, and put a kaibosh on the Trump/Putin meeting scheduled for the middle of this month.

U.S. Sidelined as Five Powers Set to Give Iran New Assurance

Top diplomats from world powers will meet on Friday in a bid to defend their landmark nuclear deal with Iran from attack by President Donald Trump.

Foreign ministers from China, France, Germany, Russia and the U.K. will convene in Vienna for the first time without the U.S. in order “to ensure the continued implementation” of the accord, which granted Iran a reprieve from sanctions in exchange for limits to its nuclear program, according to a European Union statement on Wednesday. Trump abandoned the deal in May and reimposed sanctions against countries and companies doing business with Iran.

“Austria and the European Union are ready to maintain and deepen the framework for cooperation with Iran,” Austrian President Alexander Van der Bellen said following a meeting in the Austrian capital with his Iranian counterpart, Hassan Rouhani. U.S. threats to impose secondary sanctions violate the rights of European companies and individuals, Van der Bellen said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These threats are sounding old, and impossible to pursue by the American government; they are going to have to change tactics, and soon.

‘This Is Apartheid, There Is No Better Word for It’: Calls for Boycott Growing Among Mainstream Israelis

A prominent Israeli scientist and a translator penned a joint op-ed for the Guardian last week calling on the international community to intervene on behalf of Palestinians, before time runs out. The pair, vice-president of the Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities David Harel and writer and translator Ilana Hammerman, gained traction not only because of what they wrote, but who they are: They are not marginal public figures, they are not boycott or BDS activists, and they are not anti-Zionists. They are established and mainstream career professionals renowned in arts and science circles. And they fear, “The state of Israel is facing a catastrophic situation, which could, alarmingly soon, lead to extensive bloodshed.”

From their editorial:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These are very, very brave people whose work in this direction needs very much to be commended.

But they are working against a wretchedly apartheid, self-proclaimed theocracy with nuclear weapons, and I am hoping, and praying, as a Christian, that peaceful progress between Israelis and Palestinians can happen.

Unfortunately, however, Israel doesn't want peace; it wants territory, and by any means necessary. I think that the next couple of months will be momentous, in seeing what transpires here, but I wish I had a better sense for the evolution of a potential deal for peace, but just do not see anything that will give Palestinians satisfaction for giving up the Right of Return.

Iraq expands airbase near borders with Syria, likely to receive more U.S. troops: Officer

Iraq has started expanding an airbase in Anbar province, a senior Iraqi army office was quoted saying on Tuesday, adding that the expansion is likely to receive U.S. troops.

Speaking to the London-based Al-Araby Al-Jadeed newspaper, the office said construction work as well as expansion at Ain al-Assad base have started on an area of several kilometers. “The expansion included the northern and western parts of the airbase.”

The expansion, according to the source, “takes place under strict security measures.” The officer did not clarify the real reasons behind the expansion, saying it’s likely “to receive more troops in the base, located in a desert region, which still has havens of Islamic State members.”

The source did not rule out that the expansion of the military base could be “to receive U.S. troops, especially with news on surveillance operations by the U.S. forces near Iraqi-Syrian borders.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: the US war against Iraq, begun in April of 2003, will never be ended.

The US miitary is insisting it stay, so that it doesn't appear to have lost.

I am, however, wondering if, after the recount of the Iraqi election, which started yesterday, Mugtada Al Sadr's block is still deemed to be in power, just how he and his loyalists are going to take the memo about potentially more American troops being placed there!!

Former US Envoy to Moscow Calls Intelligence Report on Alleged Russian Interference ‘Politically Motivated’

Did the U.S. “intelligence community” judge that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election?

Most commentators seem to think so. Every news report I have read of the planned meeting of Presidents Trump and Putin in July refers to “Russian interference” as a fact and asks whether the matter will be discussed. Reports that President Putin denied involvement in the election are scoffed at, usually with a claim that the U.S. “intelligence community” proved Russian interference. In fact, the U.S. “intelligence community” has not done so. The intelligence community as a whole has not been tasked to make a judgment and some key members of that community did not participate in the report that is routinely cited as “proof” of “Russian interference.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This whole report was misdirection to insure that The Clinton Foundation, and what was done with the "Pay to Play" issue here, never got properly documented or reported, and to put the onus on President Trump, to have allegedly "colluded" with the Russians in tampering with the 2016 election.

MKs interrupt 'children under occupation' conference

Four right-wing lawmakers removed from Knesset auditorium after disrupting a controversial conference organized by left-wing parties; 'Which low are you ready to stoop to? To bring the enemy into our home?' Likud MK Oren Hazan shouts.

The "children under occupation" conference hosted by the Knesset on Monday caused an outcry even before its inception, which culminated when four Knesset members interrupted those speaking and were forcefully removed from the auditorium by security guards.

The first-of-its-kind conference was initiated by left-wing parties to discuss Israeli-Palestinian conflict's ramifications on children living in West Bank, Gaza and east Jerusalem.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears that the Israeli left is both understanding of how horrific the optics are of children being tortured to produce "confessions", and fears that the BDS movement will get stronger, which it inevitably will, as more images from Gaza emerge on a daily basis, like those I have just put up, showing the IDF shooting at, and wounding....women and children.

Israeli forces wound scores of women in Gaza rally

Israeli gunfire as thousands of Palestinian women demonstrated along the heavily fortified fence with Israel in the besieged Gaza Strip.

Ashraf al-Qudra, spokesperson for Gaza’s health ministry, said in a statement on Tuesday that media representatives covering the event were among those who were injured at the scene, east of the enclave.

The protest was the first mass women’s demonstration to take place in the strip since popular protests calling for Palestinians’ right of return began on March 30 in the strip.

Palestinians in the strip have taken part in the protests, dubbed the Great March of Return, calling for their right of return to the homes from which they were expelled from in 1948 during a violent ethnic cleansing campaign that forcibly expelled more than 750,000 Palestinians from their towns and villages.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

WOW, THIS action takes the IDF's "manly man butch act" to a whole new level of low; shooting and wounding... women and children!

Another Saudi Coalition Wedding Massacre in Yemen

This is just the latest wedding massacre carried out by Saudi coalition forces. The coalition has illegally treated all of Saada as a military target for three years, and it has routinely struck civilian targets ever since. U.S. military assistance to the coalition enables attacks like this one, and it has not made coalition attacks any less likely to hit civilian targets. On the contrary, by providing the coalition with unconditional backing for its campaign and refusing to criticize them for their war crimes the U.S. makes attacks on civilians a certainty. There is no excuse for providing weapons and fuel to governments that slaughter people in their homes, schools, markets, and during their wedding celebrations. That support must end, and it is long past time that Congress voted to end it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As long as I have breath, I will peacefully, logically, and clearly witness to the US enabling of Saudi war crimes in Yemen.

These people, particularly the children, are not "expendable" or collateral damage; they were innocent civilians who had the horrifically bad luck to be at the absolute wrong place at the absolute wrong time.

Here are some images of what the US is assisting the Saudis in doing in Yemen:

Images: Yemeni civilians, infants, and children, slaughtered by Saudi air raids

If you can look at these, and feel absolutely nothing about the pain, suffering, and death these US-enabled Saudi troops are creating, toward a complete genocide of the Yemeni people... I'm sorry, but you cannot truly be a human being.

BUSTED! FBI Set Up The Clinton-Lynch Tarmac Meeting

According to a report by the Inspector General (IG) the FBI set up the now infamous Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch tarmac meeting. Buried in the IG report of the FBI’s conduct during the 2016 election comes the revelation.

On page 203, it’s revealed that the “impromptu” meeting between Bill Clinton and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch on a tarmac in Phoenix, which was supposedly just a meet up of two very famous Democrats with private jets, was actually set up by Clinton’s Secret Service detail and the FBI.

US And Israel Form "Working Group" To Overthrow Iran Government

When economic protests quickly turned into widespread anti-regime protests engulfing some 75 mostly provincial cities and towns across Iran in late December and into January, we took note of the State Department's brazen pro-revolutionary rhetoric calling for "elements inside of Iran" to lead a "transition of government" in spokesperson Heather Nauert's own words (echoing prior statements by then Secretary of State Rex Tillerson).

We posed the question then, and raised it again with renewed unrest in Tehran and the southern city of Khorrmashahr over this past week: are we witnessing regime change agents hijacking economic protests?

Indeed a high level joint US-Israeli "working group" has been meeting for months with just this goal in mind as Axios confirms in a bombshell new report: "Israel and the United States formed a joint working group a few months ago that is focused on internal efforts to encourage protests within Iran and pressure the country's government."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is geopolitical hubris on an order of magnitude that amazes even me, and that is a rare situation!

There are too many countries all too ready to do business with Iran for its oil, sidestepping US sanctions, and avoiding the US dollar alltogether. These include China, India, and Turkey. In fact, the Trump administration has had to soften its stance on this demand:

U.S. Softens Demand That Countries Stop All Iran Oil Imports

And note the curious date by which these countries were supposed to comply; 4 November. So one has to wonder; will there be another blustery "OR ELSE!!" from the White House against these countries, or is this a date by which a go/no go decision will be made on a military attack against Iran, if the current protests are unsuccessful at achieving the regime change in Tehran wanted by the US and Israeli governments?!?

Imran Awan Gets Sweetheart Plea Deal; DOJ Won't Prosecute Alleged Spy Ring, Cybercrimes

The Department of Justice won't prosecute Imran Awan, a former IT administrator for Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz and dozens of other Democrats, for allegations of cybersecurity breaches, theft and potential espionage, as part of a plea agreement one one count of unrelated bank fraud.

After the entry of your client’s plea of guilty to the offense identified in paragraph 1 above, your client will not be charged with any non-violent criminal offense in violation of Federal or District of Columbia law which was committed within the District of Columbia by your client prior to the execution of this Agreement -Awan Plea Agreement

Awan withdrew hundreds of thousands of dollars after lying on a mortgage application and pretending to have a medical emergency that allowed him to drain his wife's retirement account. He then wired large sums of money to Pakistan in January, 2017.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF this deal does not prove to the American people how politicized and corrupt the DOJ has become, nothing, unfortunately, will!!

On Tuesday morning, criminal Pakistani IT worker, Imran Awan pleaded guilty to making a false statement on a loan/credit application.

The Feds subsequently shut down everything else related to the IT scandal.

The Pakistani spy ring that infiltrated the House Dems is one of the biggest scandals in US history, yet here we are watching another egregious breach of security go unpunished, because Democrats are involved.

President of Judicial Watch, Tom Fitton has been fighting the Imran Awan case along side of investigative reporter for The Daily Caller, Luke Rosiak.

US Senate Rubber Stamps Intel Report Finding Russia Meddled in 2016 Election

The US Senate Intelligence Committee said Tuesday that it agrees with the Intelligence Community Assessment (ICA) from January 2017 that Russia interfered in the 2016 US election and that President Vladimir Putin personally approved the meddling campaign, despite admitting that it didn’t have access to the sensitive data underpinning the report.

30 YEARS AGO TODAY, U.S. SHOT DOWN A PASSENGER PLANE KILLING 290 CIVILIANS AND COVERED IT UP

On July 3, 1988, the United States killed 290 innocent Iranian civilians when it shot down Iran Air Flight 655—a tragic event that is not mentioned in history textbooks in school, and that is widely ignored in the context of current relations between the U.S. and Iran.

The scheduled flight was traveling from Tehran to Dubai, and there were 66 children on board, all of whom were killed, as no passengers or crew members survived the attack. The plane was shot down by the USS Vincennes, which was operating within Iranian territorial waters. It targeted the large Airbus A300 and then insisted that crew members mistook it for an F-14 fighter jet, despite the obvious difference in size.

At the time, Iraq and Iran were engaged in a bitter war that was declared by Saddam Hussein on Sept. 22, 1980. The United States’ support for Iraq in the conflict is notable because it would later go on to overthrow Hussein in 2003.

CAMBRIDGE ANALYTICA'S PARENT COMPANY USED YEMEN AS PSYOP TEST SITE

Leaked documents show that Strategic Communication Laboratories (SCL), the parent company of the notorious Cambridge Analytica, carried out a surveillance operation embedded among local Yemeni populations in 2009. The research and psychological tactics of deception were likely later used against populations around the world including Libya, Syria, and Iran where SCL Group carried out various operations to influence social climates on behalf of their clients.

SLC Group has a dubious history of stirring up trouble with “psychological warfare” in places like Nigeria, Ukraine, Latvia and many Western countries.

The leaked documents, obtained by the Grayzone Project, detail a program called “Project Titania” carried out in Yemen which SCL Group appears to have used for honing their psychological manipulation skills. Grayzone spoke with a media professional who SCL attempted to recruit for an operation in Iran in 2009.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Do you like the fact that the US government is still torturing, or outsourcing torture, in Yemen?!? I sure as hell do not!!

I am having a Jean-Luc Picard, double palm moment, at warp speed, upon reading this.

Analytically, torture just does not produce actionable results; it only gets the tortured person to say what he or she thinks their torturers want them to say to get the torture to stop.

Torture, then, is more about creating confessions with which to justify various agendas the US government and military wish to implant on the minds of American citizens, rather than factual discovery, of what actually happened.

In World War II, a German interrogator by the name of Hanns Scharff, Hanns Scharff, who only used kindness on the American and British POWs he interrogated, and this brought him excellent results completely without the use of torture.

He was so respected by his American military counterparts that after the war, he was invited to teach his techniques to the American military.

But apparently, the CIA, American, and Emirati military leadership missed being able to torture, or outsource torture, and the intense pleasure they achieved, in the bringing of acute pain and death to their prisoners.

Sort of like "Westworld", but where real world consequences do come to bear, at least for these prisoners.

So Congress hired Haspel to head the CIA, where she gave her word that she would never allow torture to happen again, and it is happening right now in Yemen, under President Trump's watch: this absolutely disgusts and sickens me.

It has become painfully clear to me, after 9/11, that I can never believe anything any governmental agency has to tell me, because the Bush administration lied this country into two horrendous wars, against Afghanistan, and Iraq, from which we have never actually recovered, nor from which this government appears to be ready to totally disengage.

GERMAN PROTESTERS FED UP WITH US WARS BLOCKADE RAMSTEIN AIR BASE

About 2,500 people gathered outside the largest US base in Germany over the weekend as the Trump administration considered a possible US withdrawal from the country.

Sputnik Deutschland contributor Marcel Joppa was on the scene for Saturday’s protest, joining people of all ages including seniors as old as 80 years old, who endured the summer heat and faced down the police to show their discontent with US military operations launched from German soil.

Organized by the “Stop Air Base Ramstein” civil group, the protest was attended by several politicians, most notably Sara Wagenknecht, the leader of The Left Party faction in the Bundestag.

Addressing the crowd, Wagenknecht spoke out on the issue of drone warfare, “which although not written about much in the big press continues to take place.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good on you, Sara; good on you!

And, BTW. did you hear a word on this protest from last weekend, from the American Presstitutes?!? Nothing, Nada, Nein, Zip!!!

Journalist of many blunders Brian Ross leaves ABC News

Veteran ABC News anchor Brian Ross, who was suspended last year after airing a false story about former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, is leaving the network, along with his producer.

Ross was suspended for a month last December following an inaccurate report about the former national security advisor. The report claimed that Donald Trump had directed Flynn to make contact with Russian officials during his 2016 presidential campaign.

It was later clarified that, in fact, Trump had asked Flynn to contact Russian officials when he was president-elect – a not-unusual request for an incoming president. The bombshell ‘news’ was so explosive that it even caused the stock market to tumble and ABC was forced to apologize for its “serious” error.

CIA Undermines North Korea Summit By Leaking Report To Media Asset

Just as it was reported that the summit between the United States and North Korea was back on and that Kim Young Chol, the Vice Chairman of North Korea was on his way to New York to meet with officials in preparation for the June 12 summit, the CIA leaked an intelligence assessment concluding that “North Korea does not intend to give up its nuclear weapons any time soon.” The timing of this leak is striking, as it seems to be an effort to undermine negotiations between the two nations and comes just days after ranking members of the Democratic Party and Republican hardliners attacked President Donald Trump over his efforts to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

LEAKED EMAILS REVEAL PRO-SAUDI INTRIGUE AT 2016 GOP CONVENTION, ATTEMPTS TO SUPPRESS 9/11 DOCUMENTS

Late last week Middle East Eye published the bombshell contents of newly leaked emails which confirm that "the relationship between the Emiratis and the president’s [Trump's] inner circle was cemented earlier than previously thought." And this follows previous emails which we've reported on here.

The new batch of emails shed further light on UAE and Saudi efforts to penetrate the Republican platform in 2016, which the emails show "was altered to remove a call for the publication of 28 pages of allegedly incriminating documents from the 9/11 inquiry" — and attempts to prevent Trump from making any remarks that could potentially embarrass Saudi Arabia, specifically (as one email reads) "the issue of her [Hillary Clinton] taking Saudi Arabian money".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have almost all but given up on the American political process, because of the naked corruption evidenced by both sides of the aisle.

I wish Mike and I could claim asylum, or citizenship, in a country which doesn't stoop to war crimes through which to achieve its geopolitical agendas (as in the US government enabling the Saudi government with war crimes in Yemen), but we are, unfortunately, both too old, and too broke, to make something like this happen.

Former US Envoy to Moscow Calls Intelligence Report on Alleged Russian Interference ‘Politically Motivated’

Did the U.S. “intelligence community” judge that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election?

Most commentators seem to think so. Every news report I have read of the planned meeting of Presidents Trump and Putin in July refers to “Russian interference” as a fact and asks whether the matter will be discussed. Reports that President Putin denied involvement in the election are scoffed at, usually with a claim that the U.S. “intelligence community” proved Russian interference. In fact, the U.S. “intelligence community” has not done so. The intelligence community as a whole has not been tasked to make a judgment and some key members of that community did not participate in the report that is routinely cited as “proof” of “Russian interference.”

COURT DECISION COULD LEAD TO EPA BANNING WATER FLUORIDATION

A federal court has denied an attempt by the Environmental Protection Agency to dismiss a lawsuit seeking to ban the use of fluoride under the Toxic Substances Control Act.

In a victory for water fluoridation opponents, a judge in the Northern District of California has denied a motion by the Environmental Protection Agency that sought to limit the information available to the court while making their decision on whether or not to ban water fluoridation. The lawsuit was brought forth by Food and Water Watch Inc. and a coalition of health organizations and individuals concerned about fluoride. Under section 21 of The Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) citizens are allowed to petition the EPA to regulate or ban individual chemicals. Food and Water Watch filed the lawsuit after the EPA rejected a citizen petition calling for the EPA to ban the addition of fluoride chemicals to the drinking water supply.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Floride is a good treatment for teeth; but put in the water supplies, the way it has been, it acts as a mild tranquilizer.

FACEBOOK BUG COULD HAVE UNBLOCKED PEOPLE YOU PREVIOUSLY BLOCKED

When you choose to block someone on social media, it's usually for a good reason. Maybe you just don't get along with them, they post upsetting content or maybe they have harassed you in the past. Whatever the reason, most Facebook users probably want the people they block to stay blocked.

That was not the case for 800,000 Facebook users.

The social media giant said in an announcement on Monday that the privacy settings for these users had been affected for eight days, from May 29 to June 5. The bug allowed people who had been previously blocked on Facebook and the Messenger app, to become unblocked, giving them to see and message the profiles of those that had blocked them.

While the bug has since been fixed, during that period, 83 percent of people affected by the glitch had one person become unblocked, while the rest had to deal with a few more unwelcome guests.

Facebook further explained the bug on Twitter:

U.S. MILITARY SURVEYS FOUND LOCAL DISTRUST IN NIGER. THEN THE AIR FORCE BUILT A $100 MILLION DRONE BASE.

BEFORE THE U.S. military began building its $100 million drone base in Agadez, Niger, U.S. Africa Command and the State Department took the temperature of locals through public-opinion surveys. The results indicated mixed feelings about the United States and its motives in the region — and take on added resonance in the wake of an ambush last October in Niger that killed four American soldiers.

“The devout of Agadez are divided on variables associated with violent religious extremism,” reads a military report that contains data from surveys conducted in 2012 by the polling firm ORB International. The 2013 report by U.S. Army Africa, which is the Army component of AFRICOM, is titled “Special Assessment: Agadez, Niger – Strategic Crossroads in the Sahara,” and was obtained by The Intercept via the Freedom of Information Act.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US military has established this drone facility in Niger, to head off any other rebellion by other African countries, and is following the very predictable path of wanting to arrange for Niger's natural resources to be expropriated; insure that a Western-centric government rules the country; and that those resources are only sold for the US dollar.

And although its GNP is primarily supported by its agriculture, its other natural, and as of yet, unexploited wealth, includes the following:

A to Z Mining

The article goes on to state:

"The natural resources of Niger include uranium, coal, gold, iron ore, tin, phosphates, petroleum, molybdenum, salt, and gypsum. Niger has some of the largest uranium reserves in the world. It also has a good amount of oil reserves. Experts state that Niger’s exports are likely to expand significantly by year 2016."

This was obviously written some time ago, but that resource list is still current.

ICE GEARING UP FOR WAR? US IMMIGRATION AGENCY RUNS ASSAULT RIFLE TRAINING, DOUBLES M4 ARSENAL

The US Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency is training agents to use military-style weapons and tactical equipment and has more than doubled its arsenal of M4 assault rifles lately, according to public records.
The apparent effort by ICE to grow some extra muscle was spotted by The Young Turks YouTube channel, which reviewed ICE-related federal procurement records and reported their discoveries on Tuesday. One such contract shows that the officers of the agency’s Enforcement and Removal Operations will this year be trained in the use of assault weapons, chemical agents, stun grenades, and flash bangs at the Howell Shooting Range in Chicago area. The record says up to 160 agents may undergo the training quarterly.

A spokesperson for ICE told TYT that the training was meant to “sustain readiness as mandated by department training requirements.” A retired ICE agent said: “Sounds like they’re getting ready for war.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is deeply concerning to me; however, that being said, this country needs some tough, but compassionate, choices on immigration, and address how various US drug policies in other countries (like Honduras, El Salvador, and Honduras) are making things so bad for the decent people who live there, that they feel that they have no other choice but to attempt to immigrate, even if they ultimately wind up getting sent back home.

WATCH: COPS BEAT, ARREST INNOCENT PHD STUDENT, ACCUSING HIM OF STEALING HIS OWN CAR

All too often, those who blindly support authority without question will say, ‘If you don’t want to get beat up by police, don’t break the law.’ However, time after time after time, they are proven wrong — often in the worst way. Lawrence Crosby is proof that not breaking the law is not protection against getting hurt by police as he was beaten and arrested by cops who thought he’d stolen his own car.

Although this scenario unfolded on October 10, 2015, the infuriating and brutal dashcam video wasn’t released until later and now, Crosby is speaking out in an Op-Ed in the Washington Post. What this situation shows is nothing short of incompetence, brutality, and the viciousness of more than a half-dozen of Evanston’s finest.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Attorney General Jeff Sessions, white courtesy telephone, please!

Because unless and until you can stop this atrocious behaviour by cops against innocent civilians, people know that, statistically, there is no war on cops, but a war against innocent civilians by cops.

THE INSTITUTIONS AMERICANS TRUST MOST AND LEAST

In this era of "fake news", trust is always being called into question, whether it's the content in the president's Twitter feed or the creepy notion that your Amazon Echo is listening in on your private conversations with sinister intentions. Even though "In God We Trust" is the official motto of the United States, distrust is rampant in 21st century America.

But, as Statista'a Niell McCarthy notes, when it comes to the nation's institutions which are bedrocks of the country, however, trust levels are remaining consistent.

Gallup recently polled U.S. adults about their confidence levels in 15 different societal institutions, finding only three had a majority-level of trust.

Terrifying stories from tourists in Mexico continue a year after mysterious drowning

A year after the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel brought to light a suspicious drowning and other troubling accounts from tourists vacationing at upscale all-inclusive resorts in Mexico, the stories continue to surface.

In one recent case, a 51-year-old mother and her two adult daughters blacked out simultaneously after drinking a shot of tequila. In another, a couple in their mid-60s vomited and blacked out after two margaritas. And in yet another, a woman from Los Angeles — who had not been drinking — was taken to jail for trying to help a woman who was blacking out in the pool.

Since early July of 2017, the Journal Sentinel has heard from more than 170 travelers describing injuries, illnesses and deaths after drinking alcohol at resorts and in tourist towns in Mexico.

US Media Can’t Talk About Sheldon Adelson's Iron Grip on Trump's Foreign Policy

U.S. news outlets, which routinely “follow the money” when it comes to domestic issues, are almost completely avoiding any reporting on the clear link between Adelson’s campaign contributions and the administration’s pursuit of policies that hew closely to positions espoused by the billionaire casino magnate.

Adelson’s influence over the Trump administration’s foreign policy is hard to overlook. The Las Vegas-based billionaire, and currently the fourteenth wealthiest American, is outspoken about his political views. He has suggested using nuclear weapons against Iran, declared the “purpose of the existence of Palestinians is to destroy Israel,” promoted John Bolton for a senior foreign-policy post, directly lobbied Trump about moving the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Newt Gingrich, himself a recipient of Adelson’s financial support during his failed 2012 presidential big, said that his benefactor’s “central value” is Israel.

IN NEWLY OBTAINED MEMO, CONGRESS’S TOP COP SAID HOUSE DEMOCRATIC CAUCUS SERVER VANISHED

A secret memo marked “URGENT” detailed how the House Democratic Caucus’s server went “missing” soon after it became evidence in a cybersecurity probe. The secret memo also said more than “40 House offices may have been victims of IT security violations.”

In the memo, Congress’s top law enforcement official, Sergeant-at-Arms Paul Irving, along with Chief Administrative Officer Phil Kiko, wrote, “We have concluded that the employees [Democratic systems administrator Imran Awan and his family] are an ongoing and serious risk to the House of Representatives, possibly threatening the integrity of our information systems and thereby members’ capacity to serve constituents.”

The memo, addressed to the Committee on House Administration (CHA) and dated Feb. 3, 2017, was recently reviewed and transcribed by The Daily Caller News Foundation. The letter bolsters TheDCNF’s previous reporting about the missing server and evidence of fraud on Capitol Hill.

The plea deal states:

The Government has uncovered no evidence that your client violated federal law with respect to the House computer systems. Particularly, the Government has found no evidence that your client illegally removed House data from the House network or from House Members’ offices, stole the House Democratic Caucus Server, stole or destroyed House information technology equipment, or improperly accessed or transferred government information, including classified or sensitive information.

Wolfgang Halbig has stunning evidence that Sandy Hook Elementary School was closed months before 'massacre'

Wolfgang Halbig has stunning evidence that Sandy Hook Elementary School was closed months before 'massacre' | 18 June 2018 | We are told that on December 14, 2012, a lone gunman, Adam Lanza, went to Sandy Hook Elementary School (SHES) in Newtown, Connecticut, where in the space of 11 minutes, shot and killed 20 first-graders and 6 adults. We are also told that after the massacre, SHES relocated to an empty school in neighboring Monroe, CT -- Chalk Hill Middle School at 375 Fan Hill Rd. -- until a new swanky SHES was rebuilt with the $50 million from the state of Connecticut as a result of the shooting massacre. It turns out that SHES had moved to Chalk Hill months before the alleged massacre, which leads to this question: Since SHES had moved to Monroe, who, then, were the students and teachers whom Lanza shot to death at SHES on December 14, 2012?

EXCLUSIVE: Documents reveal Pentagon censorship of military suicides, trauma in Hollywood

A 2016 study found that 20 US veterans kill themselves every day. Department of Defence (DOD )statistics show that the suicide rate among veterans is around twice the rate in the non-military population. An analysis in 2017 said that a suicide attempt in a military unit makes other attempts more likely, and that 20% of all the suicides in the US are by military veterans.

These brutal statistics testify to the futility of our post-9/11 wars, as well as the horrors inflicted on those employed to fight these wars on the ground.

What has never previously been reported is the extent to which the Pentagon’s entertainment liaison offices manipulate and censor films, TV shows and documentaries to try to downplay or erase the widespread problem of military PTSD and suicide.

Cost of Signing the Declaration of Independence: THOUGHT CONTROL

Paperback books became treasures we shared; sometimes stories read aloud and stories told. Am remembering that time in the wilderness and the celebration of "Banned Book Week" by fairly wild librarians.

When the towers went ashes, ashes, they all fall down, and the so-called Patriot Act burst in its hundreds of pages, unread, from the jutting brow of Congress, we began to hear its contents.

A classmate, with whom I'd actually studied American History with a fiery black Irishman, was particularly incensed at the wee intrusion into the tidy world of librarians.

They were suddenly expected by "law" to function as instruments of police-state and report the reading preferences of those with library cards!

My classmate suggested that everyone we knew should check out Mao's little red book as an up-yours to petty bureaucrats pulling on jackboots for size.

It became clear why; Israel needed to deflect attention away from all the errors his department had made before and during the shooting.

Not only had his police department received at least 45 calls relating to the perpetrator, Nikolas Cruz, an armed school resource officer from his department did nothing as the massacre unfolded.
