Zuckerberg: Facebook Tries to Take Down All ‘Divisive Content’

When Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg talks about content now, he talks a lot about restricting speech.

Zuckerberg wrote an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal to explain the platform’s nebulous position on free speech. While he admitted that he “believed everyone should have a voice and be able to connect,” he also disagreed with himself.

He tried to explain that Facebook did not leave “divisive content” up on purpose. Zuckerberg said, “The only reason bad content remains is because the people and artificial intelligence systems we use to review it are not perfect — not because we have an incentive to ignore it.”

A RESEARCH CENTER AT UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO THAT EXPOSED AN ISRAELI COMPANY OF SELLING SURVEILLANCE TOOLS TO AUTHORITARIAN GOVERNMENTS IS BEING TARGETED BY THE ISRAELI COMPANY

The researchers who reported that Israeli software was used to spy on Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s inner circle before his gruesome death are being targeted in turn by international undercover operatives, The Associated Press has found.

Twice in the past two months, men masquerading as socially conscious investors have lured members of the Citizen Lab internet watchdog group to meetings at luxury hotels to quiz them for hours about their work exposing Israeli surveillance and the details of their personal lives. In both cases, the researchers believe they were secretly recorded.

Citizen Lab Director Ron Deibert described the stunts as “a new low.”

“We condemn these sinister, underhanded activities in the strongest possible terms,” he said in a statement Friday. “Such a deceitful attack on an academic group like the Citizen Lab is an attack on academic freedom everywhere.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These Israeli companies creating this software, will do anything in their power, to minimize the damage from these revelations.

This is why the BDS movement, is so very critical right now.

CIVILIANS STORM & BURN TURKISH MILITARY BASE IN NORTHERN IRAQ (PHOTOS, VIDEOS)

A mob of angry civilians has attacked a Turkish military camp near the Iraqi city of Dohuk, burning equipment and vehicles. The incident comes in response to the deaths of civilians during Turkish airstrikes, local media reports.
The incident occurred in northern Iraq on Saturday, when a large mob of civilians attacked a Turkish military encampment located in the predominantly-Kurdish region of Dohuk.

Footage from the scene which surfaced online shows civilians at the military encampment with Turkish military vehicles and tents burning in the background. At least one person died and 10 were reportedly wounded during the incident. It remains unclear if the Turkish Army sustained any casualties - servicemen are nowhere to be seen in the footage.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF Turkish President Erdogan thought, for one second, that the Iraqis were going to "throw roses at the feet" of their new overlords, I hope he understands that he was thoroughly mistaken.

Unfortunately, this is most probably going to cause more Turkish attacks of greater intensity against these Iraqi villages.

And BTW, where the heck is Muqtada Al Sadr while all of this is happening?!? Sir, your Iraqi citizens need to know that you have their back, and right the heck now. And I say this, because Al Sadr is now characterized as one of the most powerful elements in the current Iraqi government, yet holds no office of his own.

I hope that something can be done, to get the Turkish bombing to stop.

But notice; the US government requested, and got, an emergency meeting today at the UN regarding Venezuela.

So, why the heck was an emergency meeting not called regarding the Turkish shelling of Iraq?!?

To paraphrase a line from George Orwell's "Animal Farm";
Apparently, for the US government, "Some crises... are more precious than others."

Protests in France and Venezuela - Spot the Difference

The ‘Yellow Vest’ anti-government protests in France have received limited coverage in Western media and what coverage there has been has been quite hostile to the protestors.

In Venezuela though it’s a very different story. Here the street demonstrations are a major news event, despite the country being thousands of miles away. Furthermore, the coverage is very sympathetic to the protestors and extremely hostile to the government.

TOP FDA OFFICIAL BLOWS WHISTLE AS AGENCY APPROVES DRUG 10X WORSE THAN FENTANYL, FUNDED BY DOD

In a massive move to expose the Food and Drug Administration’s loyalty to big pharma, a top official from within the agency has come forward with damning claims. The FDA has succumb to Big Pharma’s influence and is approving deadly drugs to benefit their industry backers.

Dr. Raeford Brown, who is chair of the FDA’s committee to review various opioid based drugs before approving them, blew the whistle in an interview with the Guardian this week.

Brown told the Guardian that there is a “war” inside the FDA in regard to approving opioids. Brown said the agency has “failed to learn the lessons” of the recent epidemic which now claims tens of thousands of lives each year—around 150 deaths every single day.

Brown’s interview comes on the heals of the FDA approving a horrifyingly strong drug that is 1,000 times stronger than morphine and 10 times stronger than the incredibly deadly drug fentanyl.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As word gets out about how this drug was approved, and any of our military, or their families become ill, or die as a result of taking the drug, look for class action lawsuits against both the US military, and the drug company which manufactures the drug.

 CONFIRMING US ORCHESTRATION, REPORT DETAILS PENCE'S KEY PHONE CALL TO VENEZUELAN OPPOSITION LEADER

"The U.S. had been planning this coup in Venezuela. It was the Trump administration that told the little-known opposition leader Juan Guaidó to declare himself (unelected) 'president.'"

As U.S. lawmakers, civil society leaders, and Latin America experts continue to warn against American intervention in Venezuela's internal political affairs, the Wall Street Journal on Friday confirmed suspicions that opposition leader Juan Guaido's move to declare himself "interim president" of Venezuela this week was highly coordinated with the Trump White House and Republican lawmakers.

"The U.S. is not just 'behind' this coup; the U.S. is openly leading the coup."
—Ben Norton, The Real News

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am watching the Faux crawl as I type this, and what is the most critically important, attention grabbing story they choose to go with at 6:50 AM my time?
Lawsuit Filed to have the ending of the Rams/Saints replayed, after missed call.

No wonder so many people are so incapable of having a critical thought, as to what their government does behind their backs.

But no, wait a minute; this is being done right in front of the public's face; they just need to want to see it.

And THAT, my friends, is why we, as a country, are slouching toward more and more wars, because those who are supposed to be taking care of We the People, are taking care of the governments and corporations which have acquired them, like some kind of assets, to be certain that the "geopolitical game" gets played precisely to bring more profit to the already monied.

Every war, or regime change the US has started over the past 17 years has resulted in a massive, epic, fail. Afghanistan is a mess; Libya is a mess; Iraq is a mess; Somalia is a mess; Syria is a mess; Ukraine is a mess; and Yemen, where the US is complicit in ongoing Saudi war crimes against the Yemeni people?!? Please don't flipping get me started.

It would be very pleasant to live in an America whose painfully honest, slogan would not be be "War Crimes R Us!!"

Unfortunately, however, we have seen the consistent, brutish behaviour of this government, against people who have the gall to live over, or around, resources the US wants to expropriate.

The methodology here is simple, and we can see it in every one of the US government's military misadventures of the last 17 years; demonization; the piling on of sanctions (which frequently have zero basis in fact); destabilization; regime change; making sure that the companies handling those resources are US centric; and that those resources will only be sold in the American dollar.

Stir; rinse; repeat.

And rather than have the maturity to analyze where the country has gone wrong, to prevent these atrocities from ever happening again, it is doubling down on thinking that DC can create regime change in Venezuela, about which they know less than nothing, except for the massive oil reserves the country has.

Venezuelans are a very smart people, with a real understanding of their very rich, and complex, history.

Therefore, I would like to politely, but strongly, caution DC about jumping in here with any kind of "invasion force", as that force will not only be met with the fury of the Venezuelan people, but also by China and Russia, which have intense financial interests here, and will probably react very forcefully, should the US invade Venezuela.

And President Trump, please; a word, here.

As a Christian pacifist activist, I have always hoped that the US could manage to "engage rather than enrage" regimes with which we differ.

But sir, what I am seeing is that we have very little with which to engage.

Our GMO agriculture is a fright, and other countries have learned to manufacture products which are both cost effective, and work amazingly well; if you have an iphone, remember; this clever little gadget, which can do so much for us, is manufactured in China.

Our manufacturing has been offshored and outsourced, and that critical issue has to get fixed; but educating people as to how things are manufactured in the 21st century, and particularly with the integration of AI now, takes time.

The only thing left, in which the world is interested, is our weaponry, and that is already getting shown up by some incredible work in Moscow (brilliantly field tested in Syria, as you know) and Beijing.

So I can see why you, and the people surrounding you, are playing the "enrage" card against countries around the world; that is because it is the only card the US has to play right now.

Military actions against countries on the US government's "to regime change list", may well unleash a world war of epic magnitude, the likes of which have never been seen before, with a devastation potential for destroying most of the life left on earth, including humankind. Talk to the scientists who are privy to this information; I am very sure they will tell you much the same.

I remember a quote from the great genius, Albert Einstein. When queried about what weapons would be used in the next "great war", his response was the following "I don't know about the weapons for the next war; but I do know about the weapons which will be used in the war after that. The questioner pressed, "And what will those be, Dr. Einstein?!? At which point, Einstein shot the guy a look, and said, "Sticks... and stones"

A Pentagon Campaign to Keep the Public in the Dark

President Trump doesn’t much care for efforts to monitor and report on wasteful Pentagon spending and other military inefficiencies. This month, he ordered acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan to withhold battlefield reports from inspectors general in order to keep the information from becoming public.

“The public means the enemy,” Trump explained. “Those reports should be private reports.”

This order doubles down on a worrying trend at the Defense Department since Trump took office toward increasing unnecessary secrecy.

BEX ALERT - Cocaine And Cash: How Maduro Stays In Power

"Cocaine, Payola" reads the headline of a new Bloomberg report detailing why and how Venezuela's top military brass will likely remain loyal, at least for the near term, to the Nicolas Maduro regime. As intense international pressure led by the United States builds aiming to topple Maduro in favor of "interim president" Juan Guaido — and as what's now an "open secret" of Washington's direct attempts at fostering a military coup — a key question is just how cohesive and loyal will the military remain.

TRUMP REJECTED ELLIOTT ABRAMS FOR STATE DEPT IN 2016. POMPEO JUST HIRED HIM FOR REGIME CHANGE IN VENEZUELA

Former U.S. diplomat Elliott Abrams will lead U.S. efforts on Venezuela, where Washington has recognized an opposition leader as the legitimate president, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Friday.

“Elliott will be a true asset to our mission to help the Venezuelan people fully restore democracy and prosperity to their country,” Pompeo said in announcing Abrams’ appointment.

He said Abrams would accompany him to the United Nations on Saturday for a Security Council meeting on Venezuela where the U.S. will press other countries to support opposition leader Juan Guaido as the country’s interim head of state.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Upon reading this, I must confess that I felt a churning tsunami of nausea sweeping across my innards; please, Lord, stop testing, I am unworthy!!

This is the kind of choice which makes me understand, with painful clarity, and as if I already didn't understand, that the inmates in DC have truly taken over the asylum, and refuse to let any voice of reason, responsibility, or logic prevail.

Something wicked this way comes, and most probably very soon. The UN is holding an emergency meeting on Venezuela today, and to hear Mike Pompeo, at his most bombastic, at the microphone, just imagine that everything we have ever done for Venezuela to be the polar opposite of what he is saying the US government has done.

Here are some of the statements he made at the briefing room at the White House yesterday:

Mike Pompeo regarding Venezuela
I am particularly concerned about Abram's CV, which can be found here; Eliot Abrams is a War Criminal.this guy is the Dark Overlord of Dark Overlords, when it comes to designing a misery of hell, damnation, and oppression in those countries where the US either wants to stay friends with a dictator, Like the Shah of Iran, for example, because they have been "useful" to the US, or the US is angling for regime change, because they dislike the current administration, as is the case in Venezuela.

If you have any religious bent of any kind, please start praying for the people of Venezuela; they sure as heck are going to need it, and soon.

UN BEGINS INQUIRY INTO KHASHOGGI MURDER

The United Nations Human Rights Office announced yesterday it is beginning an investigation into the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

In a statement, the UN said that an independent panel would seek to establish “the nature and extent of states’ and individuals’ responsibilities for the killing”.

The UN special rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions, Agnes Callamard, said she would travel to Turkey next week to head an “independent international inquiry” into Khashoggi’s murder in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on 2 October.

British barrister Helena Kennedy and Duarte Nuno Vieira, a pathology expert and professor at the department of legal and forensic medicine at Coimbra University, Portugal, are among the team. Along with Callamard, they are to visit Turkey between 28 January and 3 February and plan to report to the UN Human Rights Council in June.

Callamard said that the findings will be raised at the UN rights office on 19 June.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

More sound and fury from the UN, signifying nothing; the responsibilities for the death of Khasshogi will be squarely placed on the "usual suspects" (underlings, with absolutely no power of decision making whatsoever), and the real blame against who most probably ordered the hit (most likely, the Butcher of Yemen, Crown Prince Bin Salmin and his cohorts in the White House), will be left , uncharged, in order to let Saudi Arabia and US continue their genocidal war in Yemen.

QATAR BEGINS DISTRIBUTING CASH TO GAZA RESIDENTS

Thousands of impoverished Gazans received $100 payments from Qatar on Saturday, the AFP news agency reported, after the Gulf state brought in over nine million dollars in aid funds for the Palestinian territory.

Hundreds of people queued at post offices in the Gaza Strip to each collect a $100 bill.

Palestinian media earlier quoted the Qatari ambassador to Gaza as saying the money would go to Gaza's poor.

"The Qatari grant for needy families will enter Gaza Saturday and be distributed ... to 94,000 families," Mohammed al-Emadi was quoted as saying.

Half the funds would be distributed Saturday and the rest Sunday, he said, with each family receiving $100.

Emadi was not immediately available to confirm the arrangement.

Israeli newspaper Haaretz reported that families in Gaza would receive $400 in total, paid in four monthly instalments.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Gazan Palestinians, are some of the poorest of the poor in this region of the Middle East. I seriously hope that most of the money will be distributed as intended, if Tel Aviv is not, at the end of the day, demanding some other perk with which to scotch the deal.

JUAN GUAIDO: IMPERIAL POINT MAN FOR A VENEZUELAN CIVIL WAR

Putting a new face to the Venezuelan opposition then immediately allowed for all sorts of anti-Maduro actors use Guaidó as their man to rally around.

So now that there is a new imperial point-man inside Venezuela the real question is, what happens next?

There are two likely outcomes to the rise of Guaidó, one of which is contingent on him succeeding and the other which would be another complete failure for the imperialists.

Guaidó launches his campaign today following several days or organizing protesters at rallies in Caracas. The protests have already started to turn violent as of this writing with at least four dead and the opposition calling for the military to “rise up” against the Bolivarian government.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am seeing some very dark, dramatic days ahead for the Venezuelan people, as this situation plays itself out.

The key, here, is will Guaido be able to turn the Venezuelan military around to his point of view, and what kind of access to capital infrastructure he may have.

Remember, Victoria Nuland bragged about how much of your tax dollars were used to overthrown the duly elected President of Ukraine. Victoria Nuland Admits: US Has Invested $5 Billion In The Development of Ukrainian, "Democratic Institutions"

I would rather imagine, to obtain virtual control of Venezuela's vast oil reserves through a compromised Head of State, that the US and other vested interests may well be looking at raising the ante to insure that this happens.

Trump’s Hawks Seek Aggressive Stance on Venezuela Regime Change

From 2017, the Trump Administration has been angling for regime change in Venezuela. Back during his tenure as CIA Director, Mike Pompeo was talking about trying to orchestrate such a “transition” of power.

This week, President Maduro’s power began to face a serious challenge. Following calls from Pompeo’s State Department, opposition leader Juan Guaido declared himself interim president. The hawkish parts of the Trump Administration are only too eager to embrace this, and are looking to aggressively back the change.

Backing Guaido means open efforts to undermine Maduro, and that seems to be the near-term direction for the administration. John Bolton says that the main focus right now is on figuring out a way to ensure that all money from Venezuelan oil exports goes directly to Guaido. Bolton said this was only consistent with US recognition of him as the legitimate government of Venezuela.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to wonder just how long the Trump administration is going to wait on this issue; if they are going to move forward, it will have to be done very quickly.

There are numerous US bases in neighboring Columbia, bordering Venezuela, and I would be willing to bet that they are on a state of high alert right now.

ROCKEFELLER WAR ON VENEZUELA CONTINUES

Russia warned that the attempted US coup attempt, which was later backed by the right-wing governments of Brazil, Colombia, and Canada, would result in bloodshed if further actions were taken. Kremlin spokesmen Dmitry Peskov stated said outside interference in the country were “unacceptable” and that talk of US military actions was “dangerous”.

Educated at the CIA-infested George Washington University, Guaido only became president of the National Assembly of Venezuela on January 5th. He immediately claimed that Maduro was not Venezuela’s President and worked to incite rebellion within the military.

Maria Iris Varela Rangel, a leader in Maduro’s United Socialist Party of Venezuela, Tweeted of the sedition, “Guaido: I have already gotten your jail cell ready with the right uniform, and I hope you name your cabinet quickly to know who will keep you company, you stupid kid”.

THE UNITED STATES IS AT IT AGAIN: COMPILING AN ENEMIES LIST

The phrase “axis of evil” proved so enticing that Undersecretary of State John Bolton used it two months later in a speech entitled "Beyond the Axis of Evil." He included three more countries – Cuba, Libya and Syria because they were "state sponsors of terrorism that are pursuing or who have the potential to pursue weapons of mass destruction (WMD) or have the capability to do so in violation of their treaty obligations.” The nice thing about an Axis of Evil List is that you can make up the criteria as you go along so you can always add more evildoers.

Iraq was removed from the playing field in March 2003 while Libya had to wait for President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to be dealt with, but North Korea, Cuba, Syria and Iran are still around.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The question I want to ask is, when countries make it to the "Axis of Evil", how is the Federal Government defining that?!? And what proof should they be mandated to provide to the the people of this country?!?

And let's get real here: Russia has made the list of the "double plus, ungood countries" which deserves to be punished by the US.

I had a net friend of ours send me some beautiful examples of the Russian Police Chorus singing. They were doing it - in English, no less - and their music was exceptional. I remember watching that video and thinking; "none of these performers, or their conductor, are my enemies."

Can you begin to explain to me the logical reason why Russia has been punished with sanctions for actions they did not do, like allegedly annexing Ukraine?!??!?

The State Department has also warned US citizens in Venezuela that they should “strongly consider” leaving the country, after Maduro said the US should pull their staff out of Caracas “if they had any sense.”

The Trump administration initially rejected Maduro’s ultimatum, claiming he lacks the authority to make such a decision after the US recognized opposition leader Juan Guaido as acting head of state. Guaido, head of the National Assembly, proclaimed himself the rightful president and swore himself in on Wednesday, in a move which was immediately supported by Washington and its allies.

AMERICAN-IRANIAN TV ANCHOR MARZIEH HASHEMI RELEASED FROM FBI CUSTODY WITHOUT CHARGE

U.S. citizen Marzieh Hashemi, an anchor on Iran’s English-language service Press TV, has been released without charge after being illegally detained for ten days by the FBI.

Hashemi was arrested earlier this month while boarding an internal U.S. flight from St. Louis to Denver where she had been filming a documentary on the Black Lives Matter movement. The 59-year-old African American is a convert to Islam and has been living in Iran for the past several years.

Her arrest prompted protests across the world after it emerged she had not been charged with a crime, as well as reports that she had been denied Halal food and had her hijab forcibly removed while in detention.

“Marzieh and her family will not allow this to be swept under the carpet,” the woman’s family said in a statement shortly after her release. They “still have serious grievances [and] they want assurances that this won’t happen to any Muslim – or any other person – ever again.”

IRELAND PASSES BDS BILL BANNING ISRAEL SETTLEMENT GOODS

Ireland has advanced a bill which will prevent the sale of goods from Israel’s illegal settlements in the occupied West Bank.

The lower house of the Irish parliament – the Dail – yesterday voted in favour of a bill which will ban the purchase of all goods and services from Israel’s West Bank settlements, which are considered illegal under international law. The bill was previously passed through the parliament’s upper house – the Seanad – before proceeding to the lower house and receiving a 78-45 majority in favour, Al Jazeera explained.

The bill – officially known as the Control of Economic Activity (Occupied Territories) Bill – still needs to pass several more stages before being signed into Irish law, but it is expected to progress given its broad base of support from Irish opposition parties.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I wouldn't hold my breath that this will actually wind up as Irish law, but am hopeful it will.

When it comes to the issue of Money, it is a language common to all Israeli businesses; when this starts to hurt them, financially, perhaps they will bring some pressure to bear, that the IDF will start treating Palestinians as human beings, worthy of dignity and less draconian treatment than happens at present.

Microsoft now conspiring with pro-Monsanto front group “NewsGuard” to censor all anti-GMO news on mobile devices

Microsoft has just unveiled its plans to partner up with NewsGuard, a “startup” company bent on censoring the world wide web, disguised as an app that helps users weed out “fake news.” Now, instead of being an app that users can choose to download, Microsoft will be incorporating the technology as an integrated feature of their mobile web browser, Edge. If you use your cellphone to surf the web, Edge might not be the best choice — unless you enjoy being spoon-fed leftist propaganda by a neocon corporation that is tied to Monsanto.

As if the blatant censorship of conservatives across social media wasn’t bad enough, Microsoft and NewsGuard are now conspiring to suppress all kinds of information, ranging from conservative news organizations to scientific literature exposing the dangers of GMOs.

WHILE CRITICIZING MADURO, SANDERS SAYS US SHOULD 'NOT BE IN THE BUSINESS OF REGIME CHANGE' IN VENEZUELA

We must learn the lessons of the past and not be in the business of regime change or supporting coups—as we have in Chile, Guatemala, Brazil, and the Dominican Republic," Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) said on Thursday. "The United States has a long history of inappropriately intervening in Latin American countries; we must not go down that road again."

Amid warnings that the Trump administration is actively seeking to topple the elected government of President Nicolas Maduro, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Thursday spoke out against the U.S. government's "long history of intervening inappropriately in Latin America" even as he criticized Maduro for his violent crackdown on opposition protesters and violations of the country's constitution.

SOROS CALLS XI ‘THE WORST ENEMY OF FREE SOCIETIES,’ CHINA SAYS IT’S NOT EVEN WORTH A RESPONSE

Liberal billionaire and renowned political meddler George Soros has labeled Chinese leader Xi Jinping ‘the most dangerous opponent of open societies.’ China says it’s a gross distortion not even worthy of a rebuttal.
Speaking at the Davos economic forum in Switzerland, Soros attacked China’s “social credit” system and technological advances, saying artificial intelligence and machine learning, put “in the hands of repressive regimes,” are a “mortal danger facing open societies.”

“China isn’t the only authoritarian regime in the world, but it’s undoubtedly the wealthiest, strongest and most-developed in machine learning and artificial intelligence,” said Soros, known for using his money to organize and support movements against the governments he deems oppressive.

The “main source of hope” against Xi are the Chinese people, whose aspirations, according to Soros, are sharply distinct from the regime’s.

Beijing brushed off Soros’ attack.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

An oddly ironic comment, by a guy who wants total control of the world, through his "open borders"policy AI, and the NGOs he continues to fund.

And to Xi Xin Pen, a few words, please: President Xi; I would like to suggest, very politely, that George Orwell's "1984" was a cautionary tale,and not a "how to" manual.

WATCH: COP COVERS UP HIS BODY CAM TO HIDE FELLOW COPS BEATING SURRENDERING MAN

When people get excited about police wearing body cameras and their potential to accurately document the situation, it is important to remember that the video will only exist if the person wearing that camera allows it to. Highlighting this point is the recent case out of Miami in which a police officer was recorded covering his body camera as he and his fellow officers waylaid a suspect.

Despite happening close to two years ago, the public is only just now seeing the brutal and corrupt arrest of Ravon Boyd.

In May of 2017, Boyd was suspected of robbery when he fled from police. When officers finally found him, he was hiding in an alley, cornered with nowhere to go.

As police approached Boyd, as the video clearly shows, Boyd put his hands in the air, got down on the pavement with his face toward the ground, and outstretched his hands in front of him. He had effectively surrendered and was allowing police to take him in.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Matthew Whitaker, Acting AG of the United States, where are you, please, in calling this for what it is; brutality against a man who is surrendering, unarmed?!?

Most likely, the alleged perpetrator did the deed; but what was the use and purpose, sir, of this police unit going rogue, and kicking the guy when he was in custody?!?

And why did the unit's other members not stop what Police Sargent Adam ultimately did, but instead, abetted him by turning off their cameras?

If this is the Miami Police's definition to "protest and serve", I am very concerned that this has morphed into the "new normal" for many police departments around the country.

And I had another thought here; Israel's IDF trains many American police in their lethal tactics; did that possibly happen for the Miami police department?!? Sadly, the answer is in the affirmative:

US Cops trained in the use of lethal tactics

The article goes on to state:

"US police officers are being tutored by Israel on how to employ the tactics that have brought death and serious injury to huge numbers of Palestinians in the past few months.

Officers from 15 US police agencies recently traveled to the Middle East for lessons from their Israeli counterparts.

For 10 days in late November, police officers from New York, Miami, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s department, the Drug Enforcement Agency and US Customs and Border Protection observed the daily operations of the Jerusalem police, the Israeli Border Police and the Shin Bet secret service, all of which play a vital role in administering Israel’s system of control over Palestinians."

So now these Miami police are using their newfound IDF "tactics" on alleged perpetrators, treating their suspects... just as does the IDF treats the Palestinians.

Delingpole: Thank You, NewsGuard, for Celebrating My Wisdom on Climate Change

Thank you, thank you, thank you, NewsGuard, for treating all your new subscribers — both of them! — to one of the cleverest, truest things I ever wrote about climate change.

NewsGuard quotes me as saying (in the course of its danger warning to readers thinking of flirting with Breitbart News):

“When amateurs on a blog know more about science than the guys on multi-million dollar grants at U.S. academic institutions informing global energy and environment policy, you know that the time has come to drain the swamp,” Delingpole wrote.

And it presents it as though this were a bad thing to have written.

TERENCE MCKENNA EXPLAINS WHY TELEVISION IS THE MOST DANGEROUS ADDICTIVE DRUG IN SOCIETY

People have become totally obsessed with their own beliefs, opinions and biases that their behavior is going completely unexamined. Their reactions to the latest news item are automatic and predictable. The late iconoclast Terence McKenna pointed out that obsessive and unexamined behavior in pursuit of familiar stimulus (such as what we see with each moment of media outrage) is what drug addiction is about.

McKenna went a step further to say that television was the greatest drug ever introduced into society. What else could persuade people spend an average of 5-7 hours a day sitting in front of the TV? All the while consuming, in hypnotic states of mind, the scientifically crafted messages of corporate and government propagandists?

Here, McKenna expounds on the idea that television is a drug that is having negative consequences on individuals and on society at large:

MEXICO’S MURDER RATE IS SO HIGH IT HAS ALTERED THE LIFE EXPECTANCY OF MEN

The murder rate in Mexico is now so high it has altered the overall life expectancy of men living there. By analyzing cause-of-death data from the Mexican Institute of Statistics, researchers have discovered the staggering impact homicide is having on the nation—with the murder rate between 2005 and 2015 rising by 53 percent compared to the decade before.

A team from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) found that in the state of Chihuahua, 8,943 men between the ages of 15 and 50 were killed over 2010 and 2011. That’s nearly three times the number of U.S. troops killed in Iraq between 2003 and 2006.

Life expectancy in Mexico has steadily increased since the 1940s. However, recent data indicates it has started to stagnate.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Many years back, (probably when I was playing with my pet sabre tooth tiger) I remember going to Ensenada, or Tijuana, and I always felt safe.

But at this time in history, I would absolutely advise against going there. The cartels rule the government of Mexico, and the government is impotent to stop the drug-related crime.

Of course, what would be logical here, would be for the US and Mexico to legalize drugs, to take the profit motive out of it.

Portugal has been very much the poster child for this working quite well.

Portugal's radical drug policy is working; why hasn't the world copied it?

I would like to remind you of what happened when Prohibition was launched here in the US. While well-intentioned, it simply drove the liquor business underground, allowed a whole criminal underclass to become absolutely filthy rich.

There has been a lot of conjecture for many years that President Kennedy's father, Joe Kennedy, was a bootlegger, which has never been thoroughly proven; but his dealings with foreign heads of state, remain documented. He took a trip to England right after the end of prohibition, to work a deal with Winston Churchill about liquor distribution, as he knew that Prohibition was ending soon.

Churchill's investment deal with Joe Kennedy shortly before the ending of Prohibition.

He clearly understood that money, in the US, translated the holder of that money to an elevated position, so he sought to "legitimize" the family dynasty to a point where one son, John Kennedy, became the President of this country, and the other, Robert Kennedy, became the US's Attorney General.

But I wish that President Trump had someone on his side ("A Trump Whisperer, perhaps?!?) who would explain to him that if drugs were legalized, it would rip the financial security of the drug cartels right out from under them.

Unfortunately, however, because banks so love to "launder" drug money, and people still can buy "financially legitimacy", not to mention, potentially, an occasional politician or two, moving from illegitimate businesses to legal ones, will only happen when pigs discover... that they are aerodynic.

Banned by Facebook for Telling the Truth

Once, the newspapers competed, leaders had differing views, the pundits argued, the parties called for various actions. They vied for our pennies and votes and tried to convince us. Not any more. Now they know better what’s good for us. They do not care about circulation, they do not have to sell newspapers, for the advertisements are paid for by the rich, anyway. Once, minorities had been excluded from discussion; now, it is majority that is banned.

There is not a single newspaper in the US that supports the views of the US President. Nobody defended him when he was accused, brazenly, in-your-face, of being a Russian agent. Nobody supported him when he called to bring the troops home from Syria. Nobody came to his aid when he mulled parting with NATO. There are tens of millions of men and women who voted for him, but he has only his Twitter account at his disposal.

Tucker Carlson called out Savannah Guthrie on his show Thursday night for giving what he described as the “softest interview” to Nathan Phillips, the Native American man who was involved in a confrontation with students from Covington Catholic High School last week.

While many immediately assigned blame to the students, it later became clear when more video surfaced that they did not initiate the confrontation.

RUSSIA SENDS "SECURITY CONTRACTORS" TO VENEZUELA TO PROTECT MADURO

As the international community splits along governments who continue to back embattled Venezuelan ruler Nicolas Maduro and governments, led by the US, who have officially recognized opposition leader Juan Guaido as the country's legitimate head of state, Reuters reported that a group of Russian mercenaries with ties to the Kremlin have been sent to Venezuela to provide security for Maduro as he struggles with the biggest threat to his rule in his six years in power.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Whatever else you might think about Putin, he generally is one hundred chess moves ahead of the US government.

And please, Lord, may President Putin and President Trump NEVER have a "death-grudge chess match" between them; I would be concerned that President Trump could, literally, loose his shirt!!!:-)

BRITTANY FERRIES ACCUSE BBC OF ‘NONSENSE’ SCAREMONGERING

Brittany Ferries have moved to slap down Remainer scaremongering about international travel beyond March, and reassure passenmgers. The iconic ferry company accused the BBC of peddling “nonsense” and reassured potential passengers that they can book beyond March.

“The company would like to make clear that passengers can book crossings to France and Spain, and sail-and-stay holidays as normal. There is absolutely no truth in speculation that passengers are being advised not to book because all space has been allocated to freight.

The reality is that Brittany Ferries has added 19 crossings on three of its nine routes leaving the UK. The additional sailings create more space for freight, as requested by the DfT. As a consequence, there is now more choice for passengers rather than less.”

More Verified Hate

A day off from school in January should be a happy occasion. Students pray for snow days. But Covington Catholic in Kentucky was closed on Tuesday, January 22, for a different reason: threats of violence.

Young white men from Covington Catholic High School were in Washington, D.C., a few days earlier for the March for Life—an anti-abortion rally that attracted hundreds of thousands of people, mostly whites. The mainstream media generally reports very lightly on the event.

However, when an American Indian activist named Nathan Phillips confronted the students from Covington, many reporters saw their big chance. They were incensed that several students were wearing red MAGA hats.

Thus, a petty encounter took on major cultural importance; journalist Jessica Valenti believed a photograph of the incident would be “historic.” For the corporate media, this was a chance to smear pro-lifers, Christians, and Trump supporters as racists.

Trust ‘scientists’? Really?

Does anyone remember when we trusted “scientists”? We might not have understood them, but we understood their goals and purpose and saw both as noble at least in intent.

And now? As a group, they include too many politicized, lying fools. Part of the great “control the people” scheme — the one that is trying to re-establish a ruling class that died along with serfdom and great landed estates.

BEX ALERT - Hitler-owned book hints at Nazi plans for North America

A book once owned by Adolf Hitler provides a chilling look at what may have been his interest in extending the "Final Solution" to North America.

The book was written by a Nazi researcher who spent time in the US before the outbreak of World War Two.

It has been acquired by the Library and Archives of Canada, and was once owned by a Holocaust survivor.

The Final Solution was a code name for the Nazi's goal of committing genocide against the Jewish people.

US Has Its Gunsights On Venezuela – OpEd

On January 10—Nicolas Maduro was sworn in for his second term as president of Venezuela. “I tell the people,” Maduro said, “this presidential sash is yours. The power of this sash is yours. It does not belong to the oligarchy or to imperialism. It belongs to the sovereign people of Venezuela.”

These two terms—oligarchy and imperialism—define the problems faced by Maduro’s new government.

Pressure on Venezuela has been intense. U.S. President Donald Trump has repeatedly called for the overthrow of the Bolivarian government, led by Maduro. Sanctions have been ratcheted up. Economic warfare has become normal. Threats of a military invasion are in the air.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are a number of US military bases in South America from which the
US may stage an attack against Venezuela at any moment.

Here are the number of US bases in the country of Columbia, garnered from a document formerly on the net but has been pulled: "The Plan for Seven New Bases: The new agreement was finalized on October 30, 2009 and will allow the US military the use of 7 existing bases in Colombia. These Bases include 2 naval bases: Cartagena and Tolemaida, 3 air force bases: Malambo, Palanquero, and Apiay and 2 army bases: Larandia and Tolemaida. Although I was not able to identify where these bases are on a map, my best bet is that at least one of these cities is very close to Venezuela.

Number of US bases in Columbia These Bases include 2 naval bases: Cartagena and Tolemaida, 3 air force ... Colombia receives the most foreign aid from the US of any country in the ... Additionally, Paraguay rejected a plan to bring 500 US troops into their borders. ... The well publicized speeches of Hugo Chavez of Venezuela are only part of the story.

Mike Pence Calls for Coup d’Etat in Venezuela

Venezuela is a prime target because of its world’s largest oil reserves. US dark forces want Big Oil controlling them.

They want fascist tyranny replacing Bolivarian social democracy. They’re waging longstanding political, economic, financial, and sanctions war on the country – military intervention an option if current tactics fail.

Previous US coup d’etat attempts failed. Another slow-motion one is underway. On Tuesday, Mike Pence encouraged the toppling of democratically reelected Maduro.

He turned truth on its head calling him a “usurper,” a “dictator with no legitimate claim to power,” falsely adding “(h)e has never won the presidency in a free and fair election, and has maintained his grip of power by imprisoning anyone who dares to oppose him.”

Webmaster's Commentary:

Watch As Over 100 Migrants Illegally Scale US-Mexico Border Wall Before CBP Arrests Them

More than 100 Central American migrants were caught on camera illegally scaling the US-Mexico border wall in Arizona, just one week after 376 migrants tunneled through to the US near the same location.

Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) agents "apprehended a group of 110+ Central Americans who illegally scaled the wall with the assistance of a smuggler with a ladder," tweeted the Agency on Monday.

In the video, a procession of people can be seen slinking over the 21-foot wall and dropping to the ground, after which a person can be seen running further into Mexico while carrying a ladder. Of note, Trump's long-promised border wall - now to be made out of steel beams with 13-inch spikes on top, would be around 30 feet tall should it ever be built.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hey, I've got a grand idea for these illegal aliens; give them all the addresses, phone numbers, and emails for every single "Open Border/Sanctuary" folks, starting with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer... Tell them that they will be received with great generosity by ALL of them, including sleeping in great bedrooms.

China Joins Russia In Slamming US Interference In Venezuela

Back in March, we asked a simple question: Can Russia & China Rescue Venezuela?

Realistically, and in retrospect, the answer was always no, but the reason we asked the question was simple: both China and Russia have extended massive credits to Caracas, and Maduro's regime in particular. As such, letting the country “die” was never an option that either Beijing or Moscow would gladly accept; neither was it an option to allow a transition in Venezuela's top power echelons, one which replaces the pro-Russia and China Maduro regime, with another regime which would, supposedly, be supported and endorsed by the US, and thus jeopardize Venezuela's obligations to the two nations.

And, as we also said last March, "chances are that Washington is aware of the role that China and Russia play there. Otherwise [Washington] would have already gone ahead with the broad oil sanctions, despite potential headaches for U.S. refineries."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I hope the folks at the White House, Pentagon, and State Department are "reading the tea leaves correctly" here, watching what is happening on the ground here; one, maladroit reading of the teal leaves, and we may well be off an running into another idiotic, headlong invasion of Venezuela, buffeted by China and Russia coming in on Venezuela's side.

This would be pure insanity, on the part of the US. But unfortunately, just because something is so hamfistedly, pigheadedly stupid as to be immediately disregarded, is no guarantee that the US government won't do it.

Apparently, when it comes to idiocy, when it comes to US government decision making, we have a brilliant new example:

Clinton's 2016 Strategy Revealed: Overwhelm FBI With Trump-Russia Narrative Until Something Stuck

As it became clear during the 2016 US election that Donald Trump had a mountain of support underneath him, nervous Democrats connected to the Hillary Clinton camp reached out to US officials over a half-dozen times, "each tapping a political connection to get suspect evidence into FBI counterintelligence agents' hands," according to The Hill's John Solomon, citing internal documents and testimonies he has reviewed, along with interviews Solomon conducted.

Each contact by a Clinton crony was unsolicited, according to Solomon's FBI sources, in what they described as a "classic case of information saturation" meant to inject toxic and unverified opposition research into the agency's counterintelligence apparatus that should have known better than to eventually bite.

17 TIMES NATHAN PHILLIPS ATTACKED NICK SANDMANN IN NBC INTERVIEW

The Native American man at the center of the controversy over an unusual interaction with Catholic school students last Friday said in an interview Thursday that he forgives the 16-year-old he faced off against, Nick Sandmann.

But after doing so, he then went on a rampage against that same student he just ostensibly forgave.

Over the course of a 9 minute interview on The Today Show, the Native American activist criticized Sandmann no fewer than 17 times.

NBC, meanwhile, attempted to use the interview to put an end to the story. On Twitter, the network wrote: "Nathan Phillips, the Native American activist who was stared down by a Kentucky Catholic school student during a tense moment in Washington, D.C., said he is now able to forgive those who were involved."

If only.

Instead, Phillips could hardly stop attacking these students. Here are 17 things Phillips said upset him about Sandmann:

Why Your Enemy Is The Media—MEDIA—ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE.

CONSERVATIVES ALREADY KNOW liberal media is an enemy of the people. We recognize leftist, mass communication interconnections as a runaway propaganda monster. It has no boundaries, no limits, no love, and no honor.

HOWARD BEAL, in the movie NETWORK, 1976:

You’re beginning to believe the illusions we’re spinning here, you’re beginning to believe that the tube is reality and your own lives are unreal. You do. Why, whatever the tube tells you: you dress like the tube, you eat like the tube, you raise your children like the tube, you even think like the tube. This is mass madness, you maniacs.

In God’s name, you people are the real thing,

WE are the illusion.

No need to install: Microsoft has controversial fake news filter NewsGuard built into mobile browser

Corporate and neocon-backed startup NewsGuard is one step closer to its vision of bringing its “unreliable” news rater to every screen after Microsoft makes it an integral part of its Edge mobile browser.

Rather than having to download an app as before, Edge users on Android and Apple devices can now just click one button to enable its “green-red rating signal if a website is trying to get it right or instead has a hidden agenda or knowingly publishes falsehoods or propaganda.”

Among the green-rated websites: Voice of America, CNN, Buzzfeed, the Guardian, New York Times and the Washington Post, as well as left-leaning upstarts such as Vice News and Refinery 29. Ones that are given the red warning label of “failing to maintain basic standards of accuracy and accountability”: RT and Sputnik (obviously enough) and the right-wing Daily Mail, Breitbart and the Drudge Report, in addition to hundreds of other non-mainstream news websites such as Wikileaks.
