A PERMANENT EMERGENCY: TRUMP BECOMES THIRD PRESIDENT TO RENEW EXTRAORDINARY POST-9/11 POWERS

President Trump has become the third president to renew a post-9/11 emergency proclamation, stretching what was supposed to be a temporary state of national emergency after the 2001 terror attacks into its 17th year.

But the ongoing effects of that perpetual emergency aren't immediately clear, because the executive branch has ignored a law requiring it to report to Congress every six months on how much the president has spent under those extraordinary powers, USA TODAY has found.

Exactly 16 years ago Thursday, President Bush signed Proclamation 7463, giving himself sweeping powers to mobilize the military in the days following terrorist attacks that crashed planes into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and a Pennsylvania field. It allowed him to call up National Guard and Reserve troops, hire and fire military officers, and bypass limits on the numbers of generals that could serve.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These powers should be immediately rescinded, because 9/11 was an inside job, engineered to get the general public to buy off on an invasion of Afghanistan, because the Taliban refused to lease their oil pipelines for what Bush's DC felt was a "reasonable" amount of money.

Infowars' Alex Jones is banned from Facebook for a month

Following on from a strike for violating YouTube policies, Infowars founder Alex Jones has been hit with sanctions by Facebook for contravening its community standards.

The social network -- which just dropped in value -- removed four of Jones' videos for violating its policies and banned the right-wing conspiracy theorist from using his account for 30 days. In the event of further policy breaches by Jones or his admins, his page could be permanently banned.

Caravan Of Evil Reveals Evidence Of Western/Israeli Intelligence Assets In al-Qaeda, White Helmet Groups

By Brandon Turbeville

As more and more information comes out regarding the Caravan of Evil (i.e. the evacuation of the White Helmets from Southwestern Syria to Jordan and Israel and then on to Europe), there is also more and more evidence backing up the suspicions by many writers in the alternative media including myself regarding the nature of the specific White Helmets being evacuated. Namely, the idea that these individuals were more than just more al-Nusra Front propagandists, but valued intelligence assets...

US diplomats secretly met with Taliban without Afghan government

For over a decade, the Taliban have refused to negotiate with the Afghan government, which they view as a puppet regime controlled by Washington. They have instead sought to speak directly with the United States, without Kabul’s mediation. In 2015, the United States sought to initiate peace talks with the Taliban in the Qatari capital Doha, but the effort collapsed after the Afghan government denounced it and demanded a seat at the table. The negotiation process has remained dormant since then.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Color me slightly hopeful on this change of both heart, and tactics, by the Trump administration.

A 17 year long military failure is quite enough, thank you very much.

What needs to happen now, is for the Taliban to become incorporated into the fabric of the Afghani government, have representation politically, so that all parties can look at a real chance to end this insane war, and get the NATO and US soldiers out of the country.

States Sue to Block Downloads of 3D-Printed Gun Instructions

Washington state Attorney General Bob Ferguson leads a group of eight states and Washington, D.C., in suing the Trump administation in case filed in federal court in Seattle. Ferguson alleges that the feds violated both the Administrative Procedure Act and the Tenth Amendment. Besides Washington, attorney generals in Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, and Pennsylvania have joined in.

The suit asks for a temporary restraining order nationwide that would cover both the federal government lifting export controls and Defense Distributed from posting the downloads. (Fortune was able to download instructions from Washington State on Monday afternoon.)

Koch Hit Piece Backfires: Medicare for All Would Save ‘Whopping $2 Trillion’ Over Ten Years

Report Claims North Korea Might Be Building New ICBMs

What does it take to cast doubts on North Korea’s freeze of their ballistic missile program? Today, the Washington Post showed it takes only a single unnamed US official who claims to be “familiar with the intelligence.”

The report starts by noting satellite photos from a month ago suggest work is underway at North Korea’s Sanumdong research site. This was a site linked to past missiles, so naturally they concluded the factory might be building one or two new ICBMs.

Of course, there is no direct evidence North Korea is doing this. Indeed, North Korea just dismantled a test launching site for liquid-fueled ICBMs days ago. The official cited, however, pointed out that North Korea could conceivably rebuild the destroyed test stands “within months.”

SECOND RUSSIAN SCIENTIST CHARGED WITH TREASON FOR LEAKING TOP-SECRET DATA

he second report of a Russian scientist being charged with state treason came out Monday.

The Moscow Times reported the following:

A second Russian scientist has reportedly been charged with sharing state secrets with another country this month, a week after the high-profile detention of a space researcher on treason charges.

Last week, Viktor Kudryavtsev, a scientist at one of Russia’s leading space research labs, was charged with state treason for a suspected leak of hypersonic missile technology to a NATO country in 2013.

A member of the Public Monitoring Committee (PMC) prison watchdog said last Friday that a second scientist was found to have been detained on treason charges in July, despite prison wards having previously assured observers that only one scientist was being held.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF, allegedly, Kudryavtsev leaked this information 13 years ago, why did it take the Russian government another 5 years to realise that this had actually happened?!?

Something else appears to be going on here, and with Russia so far ahead of the US in their fighter technology, and I have to wonder if it is to frighten those currently working its hypersonic technology into absolute silence, so that no more current info about the program gets leaked.

SUPREME COURT ESSENTIALLY NULLIFIES 4TH AMENDMENT BY DENYING ROSS ULBRICHT'S PETITION

On June 28, 2018, the Supreme Court (Court) denied a petition by Silk Road founder Ross Ulbricht that would have forced the Court to address where government surveillance and the Fourth Amendment intersect online. 34-year old Ulbricht, who is currently serving a double life sentence for a non-violent crime petitioned the Court to review his case; specifically, whether the evidence used to arrest and convict him was seized constitutionally or not. The evidence in question was obtained through warrantless government surveillance of the wireless router in his private home. The Court’s refusal to review Ulbricht’s case affirms an outdated legal precedent that essentially nullifies the Fourth Amendment in the age of the Internet.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We are no longer a nation of laws; we are a nation of people, as this challenge to the Supreme Court regarding 4th Amendment protection proves.

Alex Jones faces existential courtroom battle over limits of fake news

If the Travis County Sandy Hook case makes it to trial, it could become an epic courtroom showdown, heading into Trump’s re-election campaign, over where to draw the line between free speech and libel in an era of competing claims of “fake news.”

Bankston and Dallas attorney Mark Enoch, representing Jones, will be in a Travis County courtroom Wednesday arguing over Enoch’s motion to dismiss the defamation case under the Texas Citizens Participation Act — a law unanimously passed by the Legislature in 2011 and signed into law by Gov. Rick Perry that was intended to protect citizens’ First Amendment rights from meritless claims intended to silence them. Bankston said the law is being invoked in this case as nothing more than a stalling tactic.

Enoch argues that the suit is a “strategic device” to silence Jones “as well as anyone else who refuses to accept what the mainstream media and government tell them, and prevent them from expressing any doubt or raising questions.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We all must stand with Alex Jones and Wolfgang Halbig on this, or we will all be targets for the "lawfare" to silence us!

One Bad Apple? Entire Police Dept Suspended Multiple Cops Charged with Conspiracy

All too often those who continuously apologize for crimes committed by police officers are able to justify some of the most egregious instances of outright murder by claiming the officer was a bad apple. Almost as often, however, as TFTP has shown numerous times, the bad apple theory is exactly that—a theory—with no evidence to support it.

The confidence and hubris of those directing the rest of us to race off the cliff while they watch from a safe distance is off the charts.

The Madness Gripping Washington (To murder Iranians)

The United States and Israel have been threatening Iran for something like twenty years, using the pretext that it was developing a nuclear weapon initially, but also more recently declaring that Tehran has become a threat to the entire Middle East. Both contentions are essentially lies, concocted by an Israel and Saudi Arabia that would prefer to have Iran removed as a possible impediment to their own ambitions. And they would like the United States to do the removing.

IN REFUSING TO DEFEND ASSANGE, MAINSTREAM MEDIA EXPOSES ITS TRUE NATURE

Theoretically, journalism is meant to help create an informed populace and hold power to account. That’s why it’s the only profession explicitly named in the United States Constitution, and why freedom of the press has enjoyed such constitutional protections throughout US history. The press today is failing to protect Julian Assange because it has no intention of creating an informed populace or holding power to account.

New York Daily News’ Anti-Gun Hijinx Stinks as Paper Sinks

Actions have consequences, and the shrill, one-sided diatribes have clearly gone stale. The owners of a paper that insulted its readership with cheap attacks on lawful gun owners and America’s leading gun rights organization have slashed its staff in the wake of decreasing circulation and advertising revenue.

Why Wait for it to Happen? The Media Now Invents News Stories From the Future

AS VA CONTINUES TO HOOK VETERANS ON DANGEROUS OPIOIDS, LOCAL GROWERS OFFER THEM FREE CANNABIS

Santa Cruz, CA – While the United States federal government and the Department of Veterans Affairs continue their efforts to keep cannabis from the people who need it the most, local growers are starting a movement in a state that is known for its “big government,” in an effort to make a difference in their community.

It is no secret that the VA has a history of failing to provide proper medical care for the veterans in its care. In fact, in 2015, a leaked document showed that more than 238,000 veterans died waiting for treatment, according to the Department of Veteran Affairs’ backlog.

When veterans do receive treatment, it comes in the form prescription drugs, many of which are opioid painkillers and antidepressants that are highly addictive, have alarming and dangerous side effects, and have been shown to worsen the symptoms they are supposed to treat.

God bless these people!!

MORE RUSSIAN ELECTION INTERFERENCE NONSENSE

The one-party political class fears competition and hates criticism. That’s basically what the Russian election meddling narrative is all about.
The latest accusation comes from Oklahoma Sen. James Lankford. He told ABC News the political class has to “be very aware that the Russians are trying to be able to interfere in our elections every other way they can to be able to harvest information and then to be able to use that against our democracy.”

This is the standard M.O. of tech companies and social media networks. Facebook has done this for years. It installs a cookie on your computer that tracks were you go on the internet. Facebook and others use this information to target consumers. The information is sold to corporations.

The largest collector of personal information is the NSA. But we’re not hearing about the threat it poses to “democracy.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think that Senator Lankford would be hard-pressed to name even one country in which the United States either desperately tried to flip an election of a foreign government, or funded/supported the winning candidate.

Russia... is not my enemy, nor the real enemy of the American people; that's the job of the one percenters and the military industrial complex, which consistently attempt to misdirect America's attention away from the real problems facing our country, and why those problems exist.

And to the alphabet soup agencies scanning our posts, please don't worry that I will ever advocate the use of violence against anyone; I'm a Christian pacifist activist, who really likes the Biblical admonition: "Be ye wise as serpents and as innocent as doves."

It's that "wisdom thing" to which we will always point our readers and listeners at this website! :-)

American Evangelicals Have Been Hoodwinked Into a Big Lie About Israel and the Rapture

ROTHSCHILD BANK CAUGHT UP IN MONEY-LAUNDERING SCANDAL

Switzerland’s financial regulator has accused Rothschild Bank AG and its trust subsidiary of violating anti-money laundering law in relation to 1MDB, the troubled Malaysian sovereign wealth fund.
According to the regulator, both Rothschild Bank AG and Rothschild Trust AG failed to check where assets from a client came from. The firms reportedly disregarded signs that the funds could be connected to money-laundering and took the money anyway. The companies run by the Rothschild family are also accused of reporting on the issue too late.

“Specifically, they were in breach of due diligence, reporting and documentation requirements,” Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA) said in a statement. “Finma will appoint an audit agent to review enhancements already put in place by the institutions.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Color me completely unsurprised at this development; and you have to think about all the times banks and financial services get away with this kind of behaviour, undetected.

ISLAMIC STATE DRONE PROGRAM STUDY REVEALS NATO RATLINES

Despite attempts by the US and European media to depict the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS) in cartoon villain terms, it was always clear to serious analysis that the terrorist organization’s fighters, weapons, supplies and money were entering Syria and the result of extensive outside support.

A look at any map of the Syrian conflict, regardless of its source over the past 7 years shows IS and other militant groups maintaining territory with corridors leading directly to the borders of Syria’s neighbors, particularly NATO-member Turkey and US allies Israel and Jordan.

There have been direct admissions from the US itself that it played a role in IS’ creation. A 2013 leaked US Defense Intelligence Agency memo (.pdf) would explicitly note that the US and its allies sought the creation of what it then called a “Salafist principality” in eastern Syria, precisely where IS would later establish itself.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable: ISIS was a created "frenemy", against which the US government could rail when it wanted to as being the "ultimate villain in the Middle East, while the US government was supporting it with weapons and money.

GOVERNMENT-PHARMA COLLUSION IN MASS DEATHS BY OPIOIDS

—The 2016 law, hamstringing the DEA, still has not been repealed—

The major pipeline for trafficking opioid drugs starts with pharmaceutical manufacturers, who are intentionally distributing opioids far beyond any legitimate need.

2 MILLION OPIOID ADDICTS IN THE US.

300,000 DEATHS SINCE THE YEAR 2000 IN THE US.

A significant percentage of this human carnage results from illegal distribution of opioids.

Here is the open secret:

A 2016 LAW SIGNED BY OBAMA SHACKLED THE DEA (DRUG ENFORCEMENT ADMINISTRATION) IN ITS EFFORTS TO CRACK DOWN ON BIG PHARMA TRAFFICKERS.

That law is the Ensuring Patient Access and Effective Drug Enforcement Act of 2016, passed by Congress and signed by President Obama on 4/9/16.

And that is the federal government’s role in perpetuating and expanding the opioid crisis.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are non-opioid pain killers which, when used carefully, can control pain without addiction; but of course, many of these are both cheap, and legal, so the information doesn't get out there, and people continue to die from opium addiction.

THE EU BACKS OFF ITS WAR ON CASH. HERE’S WHY

The European Commission, in its official war on cash, admitted that physical cash is perhaps not quite the source of all evil that many EU institutions, including the Commission itself, had made it out to be. And it has abandoned its war on cash.

In a report to the European Parliament and Council on the viability of EU-wide cash payment restrictions, the Commission made three crucial observations.

1. Cash restrictions would have little effect on terrorist financing

2. Cash restrictions could be useful in combating money laundering but are of limited help against tax fraud.

3. There is no appetite among the European public for EU-wide cash limits.

MAINSTREAM JOURNALIST TRACKED MISSILE CASINGS USED BY AL-QAEDA AND THEY ALL CAME FROM US BASES

Finally, a journalist for a mainstream UK media outlet is methodically tracking weapons shipment serial numbers and English-language paperwork recovered from al-Qaeda groups in Syria, and he’s literally showing up at arms factories and questioning arms dealers, including officials at the Saudi Embassy in London, asking: why are your weapons in the hands of terrorists?

Veteran Middle East war correspondent Robert Fisk recently published a bombshell report entitled, I traced missile casings in Syria back to their original sellers, so it’s time for the west to reveal who they sell arms to. In it Fisk recalls a bit of detective sleuthing he’s lately been engaged in after stumbling upon a batch of missile casings and shipment paperwork last year hidden in what he describes as “the basement of a bombed-out Islamist base in eastern Aleppo” with the words “Hughes Aircraft Co/Guided Missile Surface Attack” emblazoned on the side of the spent tubes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In the world of reporting geopolitics, Robert Fisk has always been an industrial-strength, tell-it-like-it-is guy.

And the reason he has found these western markings on the bombs and bullets he's looking at, is that the west was supporting these terrorists with weapons and money, to attempt to bring down the duly elected government of Syria.

‘Deep State social media meddles in US elections’ – Kim Dotcom slams ‘Zuckerspy & Jack the Ripper’

Kim Dotcom has slammed ‘deep state’ Facebook and Twitter for meddling in US elections, warning they do ‘100 times’ more damage to democracy than all foreign meddlers combined.

“I wouldn’t be concerned about Russian meddling in US elections,” Dotcom wrote on Twitter. “Be concerned about Deep State social media companies like Facebook and Twitter meddling in US elections.”

Martin Armstrong: Is CNN Creating A Civil War?

COMMENT: From Europe, we are looking at your CNN and it really has become just propaganda and fake news. I was not a fan of Trump, but I have to say, he has done a great job probably better than any world leader. He has revised trade and has turned North Korea while your unemployment is now below 4% at 1960s level and you have a GDP growth of 4% while we have unemployment still in the 60% level among the youth and economic growth is at best 2.4%. It is hard to see why CNN turns everything negative.

Why We Know So Little About the U.S.-Backed War in Yemen

Yemen is a catastrophe on a scale similar to Syria, but coverage in the United States has been sporadic at best. PBS News Hour did a thorough three-part series, but MSNBC, for instance, has barely mentioned the crisis in a year, during a period when it has done 455 segments on Stormy Daniels (this according to media reporter Adam Johnson).

The reason for inattention is obvious: The United States bears real responsibility for the crisis. A quote from a Yemeni doctor found in PBS reporter Jane Ferguson’s piece sums it up:

“The missiles that kill us, American-made. The planes that kill us, American-made. The tanks … American-made. You are saying to me, where is America? America is the whole thing.”

How Israel Silences Palestine in EU Circles

The Israeli propaganda machine works internationally to undermine the role of Palestinian NGOs which disclose Israeli violations of international law, and maintain the well-being of Palestinian people.

Imagine the following: a toxic op-ed is published that defames your organisation. You contact the website on which it features and are invited to publish a rebuttal.

The next day, you submit your article. As the editors are about to put it online, they are targeted by a sophisticated disinformation campaign.

More than a dozen people call the editors, seemingly on your behalf, and apply heavy pressure to publish the article. One of the callers even tries to bribe them to get it published.

This confuses and intimidates the editors, who have never experienced anything like it.

They fear that publishing under pressure may damage the independence and reputation of their website, which is a news magazine for the European Parliament.

Jeff Bezos' Paper Tells You Not To Worry About Those Billionaires

Just when you thought economic commentary in the Washington Post couldn’t get any more insipid, Roger Lowenstein proves otherwise. In a business section “perspective” (7/20/18), he tells readers:

But what if inequality is the wrong metric. Herewith a modest proposition: economic inequality is not the best yardstick. What we should be paying attention to is social mobility.

Wow, what a novel idea, as though right-wingers have not been pushing this line since the dawn of time: “Don’t worry that your standard of living is awful, the important thing is that your kids will be able to get rich.” (It doesn’t help his story that his poster child for the rich being good is Lloyd Blankfein, who made his fortune shuffling financial assets at Goldman Sachs, and benefited from a massive government bailout.)

NY Times: ‘Nearly All White’ States Pose ‘an Array of Problems’ for Immigrants

A New York Times report seemingly blasts the state of New Hampshire, as well as Vermont and Maine, for being “nearly all white.”

In a piece titled “New Hampshire, 94 Percent White, Asks: How Do You Diversify a Whole State?” the New York Times chronicles the supposed hardships of immigrants who allegedly do not have the “comfort and support of a built-in community” in states like New Hampshire, Vermont, and Maine because their populations are too white.

The New York Times interviewed immigrant Catalina Celentano who complained that when she moved to New Hampshire, she could not speak Spanish often because the state was 94 percent white.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hey, Catalina. You're not supposed to speak Spanish in New Hampshire!

Europe Needs 'Own Mueller' to Probe Alleged Russian Meddling - EP's Party Leader

Europe needs its own special counsel, similar to Robert Mueller in the United States, to look into the alleged Russian disinformation campaign, president of the European parliament's Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe (ALDE) Guy Verhofstadt said Monday.

On Sunday, the Parliament's Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) Committee issued a report in which the panel members said they had heard some evidence pointing to a campaign to influence UK election and referenda, allegedly led by Moscow.

Federal Whistleblowers Expose TSA’s “Quiet Skies” Secret Surveillance Program for ALL Travelers

By Nicholas West

It appears that, once again, the government narrative that TSA surveillance and groping is needed to keep Americans safe from the terrorists "over there" is nothing but a justification to violate the rights of everyone.

Thanks to a group of federal air marshals displaying good conscience, we are now learning about a new program that shows the full web of physical and digital surveillance that is being employed by the government to track people far beyond even the dubious "terror watch list." Not only are these marshals ready to talk - they are equipped with documents...

10 Signs That America Is In Much Worse Trouble Than We All Thought…

You may find it difficult to believe some of the things that I am about to share with you. Instinctively, most of us know that America is in trouble, but recently it has been impressed upon me that things are much worse than I originally believed. Our cities are becoming cesspools, our nation is falling apart all around us, and it seems like the number of sick, twisted and depraved people is multiplying. We still have a relatively high standard of living for the moment, but the only reason we can maintain that standard of living is because we are on the greatest debt binge in human history. And once that bubble bursts, I fear for what this nation is going to become, because things are getting really bad out there. The following are 10 signs that America is in much worse trouble than we all thought…

"God Help Us" - British Army Readied In Case Of Hard Brexit

Just as was extremely evident prior to the actual vote in 2016, scaremongering around Brexit (deal or no deal) is escalating among the cognoscenti or desperate Remain 'told you so'-ers.

Britain's Sunday Times reports that UK ministers have drawn up plans to send in the army to deliver food, medicines and fuel in the event of shortages if Britain crashes out of the EU without a deal.

Blueprints for the armed forces to assist the civilian authorities, usually used only in civil emergencies, have been dusted down as part of the "no deal" planning, with helicopters and army trucks used to ferry supplies to vulnerable people outside the southeast who were struggling to obtain the medicines they needed.

However, as ominous as this sounds, The Sunday Times admits - a number of paragraphs into their "Army on standby for no-deal Brexit emergency" story - that a source inside the Ministry of Defense said they have not yet received "a formal request" to assist the civilian authorities.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Scaremongering indeed!!

Ecuador president says Wikileak’s Julian Assange MUST leave embassy but wants assurances he won’t be executed

Australian-born Assange will eventually need to leave the London embassy where he has been living since 2012, Ecuador President Lenin Moreno says.

JULIAN Assange's legal team says Ecuador is seeking assurances he won't be EXECUTED if he is forced to leave its embassy in London.

Speculation about Assange's future has grown in recent days, amid reports that officials from Ecuador and Britain are discussing how to remove him after revocation of his asylum.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Moreno, the American Deep State is very angry at this man, for telling the truth, and may well assassinate him before he has a "kangaroo court trial."

HOW MOSSAD, ISRAEL'S SECRET SERVICE, HAS BECOME THE WORLD LEADER IN ASSASSINS WITH 800 OPERATIONS IN THE LAST DECADE

Forty years ago, Wadie Haddad was one of the world’s most wanted men. Bold, determined, ruthless, Haddad was the founder of the far-Left Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.

He trained notorious terrorist Carlos the Jackal and masterminded the hijack of an Air France plane that was flown to Entebbe in Uganda and later rescued by Israeli commandos.

Not surprisingly, the Israeli secret service, Mossad, wanted him dead. But six years after they first put out a ‘kill order’, Haddad was still very much alive, living in apparent comfort in Baghdad.

What happened next was worthy of a James Bond thriller. On January 10, 1978, a Mossad agent inside Haddad’s inner circle, known only as Sadness, switched his toothpaste for an identical tube laced with a deadly toxin, developed in a secret laboratory near Tel Aviv.

Every time Haddad brushed his teeth, a tiny quantity of the toxin worked its way through his gums into his bloodstream.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mossad did the same thing to Yasser Arafat, by poisoning his toothpaste with polonium.

But for a country which boasts about itself being a bastion of alleged "democracy" (except for the Palestinians, of course), being #1 in the world for assassinations is, indeed, a thoroughly dubious distinction.

CRIME RATE IN THE U.K. SOARS WHILE 90% OF RECORDED CRIME GOES UNCHARGED

Homicide and crime rates – including sexual assaults, and knife and gun attacks – continue to rise in the United Kingdom, with 90% of recorded offenses not ending in charges.

A report published last week lays bare the shocking numbers – crimes resulting in charges sat at 11%, with the percentage falling two points in just a year to 9%; down from 15% in 2015.

Since March of this year and the 12 months before, only 443,000 crimes out of 4.6 million recorded resulted in charges.

NOTABLY, THE NUMBER OF RECORDED CRIMES ROSE BY 11% TO 5.5 MILLION OFFENSES – THE HIGHEST LEVEL IN OVER A DECADE.
Earlier this year, the homicide rate in London overtook New York City – with knife attacks rising by more than 30%. Although crime rates are surging in the U.K.,officer numbers in London have hit a record low.

As it stands, fewer than 1 in 10 of recorded crimes result in a charge, doing little to abate fear that England is undergoing an epidemic of violent crime.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These numbers are truly horrific, and one has to wonder how many of these crimes were committed by immigrants.

What the UK government does not want to admit, is the degree to which these crmes are influenced by the culture wars they are experiencing between born-Brits, and those born elsewhere, who will not assimilate and learn anything about the culture of their adoptive country.

RUSSIAN SCIENTIST CAUGHT LEAKING KEY HYPERSONIC MISSILE DATA TO NATO (VIDEO)

The Russian Federation’s VESTI news program “60 minutes” reports that one of their missile development scientists, 74 year old Dr. Viktor Kudryavtsev, an aerodynamics and hydrodynamics expert, was arrested by the FSB two months ago on charges of espionage in connection with passing along classified information about the breakthrough Avangard and Kinzhal hypersonic missile technology to NATO operatives.

The report further details what is described as proof of the new missile technology with a brief film clip of a missile launch and a strike on a target in the Sea of Okhostsk.

The West has been slow to accept that the Russian Federation truly has developed hypersonic weapons technology, and the Vesti commentators were sharp-witted in pointing out this fact.

Dr. Kudryavtsev is presently being held in the Lefortovo detention facility while his behavior is further being investigated.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The fact that the Russians have this technology, is not the question here; the real question is, why are American weaponry experts so behind the proverbial curve on the development of this hypesonic technology?!?

One of the reasons is the corporate culture of the executives of these companies.

Because so much money flows so lavishly to both sides of the aisle for elections, which weapons and fighters manufacturers do to insure that they get the future contracts for these weapons systems, the heads of the military industrial complex believe that it is perfectly acceptible to deliver weapons late to the point that they are obsolete upon delivery; that they do not function as advertised when delivered, and that developing huge cost overruns on all projects are just the way the world works.

That corporate culture has to change, and abruptly, before the US gets its edge back in weapons/fighter technologies. And unfortunately, given the way the system works, it is difficult to see how soon that can happen.

U.S. Military Whistleblower Details U.S. Ties to Terrorism

In 2011, Scott Bennett was a second lieutenant U.S. Army special operations officer and psychological warfare analyst and worked in the highest levels of counterterrorism, intelligence, and politics in the State Department’s counterterrorism office to catch the bad guys.

When he uncovered that members of his own government were the bad guys, and were financing terrorists, he tried to blow the whistle. Hounded, persecuted, and eventually imprisoned for two years on trumped-up charges, Bennett wrote a book behind bars and smuggled it out of prison. Shell Game: A Military Whistleblowing Report exposes the betrayal and cover-up by the U.S. government and other elements, like the Clinton Foundation, Swiss banks, Saudi Arabia, and over 100 of our own representatives and senators.

Now Bennett is taking what he knows and traveling abroad, most recently to the No. 1 country in the sights of the Zionist war machine: Iran.

In Bizarre Response, Twitter Tells Trump It Does Not "Shadowban" While Admitting It Does

In response to growing outrage over the practice of "shadow banning" conservatives, as confirmed last week by the liberal publication VICE and promptly tweeted about by President Trump, Twitter issued a strange explanation to "set the record straight," where they explicitly state that they do not engage in the practice - except then they describe how they do exactly that.

DRUG COMPANY GAINS ACCESS TO 23ANDME'S MASSIVE DNA LIBRARY

Major pharmaceutical company GlaxoSmithKline has inked a four year deal with 23andMe, a genetic testing company that has a massive database of DNA information.

The partnership, announced Wednesday, will focus on the development of new drug treatments, beginning with a focus on possible treatments for Parkinson's disease.

Roughly 5 million people have submitted a DNA sample to 23andMe to discover their ancestral background as well as general information about their health, such as certain conditions and diseases they might be predisposed to.

Customers won't be required to participate in the $300 million deal, however.

"Our top priority is our customer, and empowering each individual with the options to participate in research. As always, customers choose whether or not to participate in research," 23andMe CEO Anne Wojcicki wrote in a blog post. "Customers can choose to opt-in or opt-out at any time."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We will see how much that "opt out" option really works; I hope it is very carefully spelled out in the contract.

What you're re-giving away in those home DNA tests

EGYPT SENTENCES TOURIST TO EIGHT YEARS JAIL FOR COMPLAINING ABOUT VACATION ONLINE

When she went to Egypt for vacation, Mona el-Mazbouh surely didn’t expect to end up in prison. But after the 24-year-old Lebanese tourist posted a video in which she complained of sexual harassment—calling Egypt a lowly, dirty country and its citizens “pimps and prostitutes”—el-Mazbouh was arrested at Cairo’s airport and found guilty of deliberately spreading false rumors that would harm society, attacking religion, and public indecency. She was sentenced to eight years in prison.

The video that el-Mazbouh posted was ten minutes long, and went viral on Facebook, causing an uproar in Egypt. In the video, el-Mazbouh also expressed anger about poor restaurant service during Ramadan and complained of her belongings being stolen. Egyptian men and women posted videos in response to her original video, prompting el-Mazbouh to delete the original video and post a second video on Facebook apologizing to Egyptians.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The answers here are very simple; if you go to Egypt, never complain about the country, until you are out of that country, permanently.

Perhaps the best thing to do would be to avoid Egypt for a vacation entirely.

But 8 years imprisonment after the removal of "...a blod clot from her brain which impaired her ability to control anger"?!?

Can Allah (and the folks who represent his religious brand in Egypt), not, perhaps be a little more merciful?!?

Sorry, Egyptian government and judicial system; the optics here are horrific, and I hope you can do better than this.

What the woman needs, and all of us, being 21st century humans, understand this, is counseling, coupled with some natural supplements to help her remain more calm. IF I were part of this woman's family, that would be the kind of treatment for which I would be advocating.

MAGIC MUSHROOMS: NEW RESEARCH ON PSILOCYBIN AND ITS BENEFITS

Much like the carefully orchestrated de-legalization of cannabis during the 1930’s, there was a powerful decades-long misleading campaign against psilocybin mushrooms which caused a deep-rooted fear and a subsequent public rejection of this substance.

Just as cannabis is now finally seeing an increase in public trust, several studies have been published which show extremely promising results for the use of psilocybin mushrooms in patients who suffer from anxiety and depression, or are battling addiction, and for patients who are terminally ill, helping them to alleviate their fear of death.

Psilocybin can also be exceedingly helpful for individuals who don’t have full blown depression or anxiety. The pace and structure of modern life is creating symptoms of these disorders in practically everyone, and the number of people afflicted is constantly on the rise.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It really bugs me that this, and cannabis, are not medically available for our Vets, who suffer with PTSD, and are given a raft of drugs with horrific side effects, like SSRI drugs.

BANNON SETS UP FOR EU SHOWDOWN WITH GEORGE SOROS

Steve Bannon plans to lead a populist revolt throughout Europe which, if successful, will crush George Soros and his network of open-border NGO's to smithereens, according to the Daily Beast.

And just how does the former White House chief strategist and Goldman Sachs alum plan to do this?

Bannon will set up a Brussels-based non-profit NGO called "The Movement" which will go head to head with Soros - with the goal of uniting like-minded European parties and various conservative think tanks along with other support structures.

The non-profit will be a central source of polling, advice on messaging, data targeting, and think-tank research for a ragtag band of right-wingers who are surging all over Europe, in many cases without professional political structures or significant budgets.

Bannon’s ambition is for his organization ultimately to rival the impact of Soros’s Open Society, which has given away $32 billion to largely liberal causes since it was established in 1984.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This will be a real David (Bannon) and Goliath (Soros) clash; let us hope, for the sake of the countries and parties rejecting unfiltered immigration, that David wins.

REPORT: IBM WATSON AI RECOMMENDED UNSAFE CANCER TREATMENTS

IBM has put its Watson artificial intelligence system to work on a variety of problems, including caring for cancer patients.

Watson's oncology system has helped care for more 84,000 patients around the world, and while the tech company says the program is a success, a Stat News report said internal documents tell a different story.

The publication reviewed the documents from 2017 in which medical experts discuss "multiple examples of unsafe and incorrect treatment recommendations."

In one example, a patient was recommended a drug that could lead to severe or fatal hemorrhage while he was already dealing with severe bleeding due to his condition. In another example, a Florida doctor who reviewed the system told the company that the technology is "a piece of shit."

IBM engineers and doctors who helped train the AI provided Watson with data about hypothetical patients and treatments instead of data from real, living patients, the report says.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Were I to come down with cancer, I would definitely not want to be diagnosed by AI. In the future, I think AI can assist with suggestions, but I would want to talk to an oncologist who also very much encouraged complementary medicine.

I would also want to see what the best numbers were from local medical institutions, and be able to use statistics, intelligently, to let me know which institutions had the best success rate.

AI is here to stay; but I hope that it is deployed in ways which can best help humankind, and not in ways which are unsafe, or could be downright hurtful.

RECORD MURDERS PLAGUE MEXICO IN FIRST HALF OF 2018: "THE FIGURES ARE HORRIBLE"

Mexico’s next president Andrés Manuel López Obrador, a former Mexico City mayor and outspoken critic of the political establishment - has a significant uphill battle once he is inaugurated as President on December 01: deadly violence in the country is intensifying and has hit an all-time high.

Mexico posted its highest homicides on record, with a new government report Sunday showing murders in the country rose by 16 percent in the first half of 2018.

The Interior Department said there were 15,973 homicides in the first half of the year, compared to 13,751 killings in the same period of 2017.

According to the AP, the record-breaking homicides have surpassed the violence seen during the dark years of Mexico’s drug war in 2011, along with exceeding all government data since records began in 1997.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The drug cartels appear to be in complete, total control in many areas in Mexico.

It used to be a great place for Americans to vacation; not any more.

The one thing incoming President Obrador could do to stop the drug violence, would be to decriminalize all drugs, as Portugal has done, to take the financial incentive out of drug-selling.

The problem with that, of course, is that the Unhinged, Surveilled State of Amerika would have to go along, and there are far too many people on this side of the border (including banks) who are making far too much money off illegal drugs to allow that to happen, unfortunately.

Whitehall is ‘covering up the past’: File on Prince Charles and Princess Diana's marriage, Lockerbie records and MI5 'link' to Belfast lawyer death among documents blocked by government

Civil servants have been accused of covering up embarrassing incidents such as official opinions on the marriage of Prince Charles and Princess Diana, the Lockerbie atrocity and the murder of Belfast solicitor Pat Finucane.

Government departments have blocked the release of almost 6,000 documents which have been deposited in the National Archives.

Many of the documents relate to Europe and John Major's time in Downing Street.

Ordinarily, the files would be released under the 20-year rule - but Whitehall mandarins are afraid the contents would cause controversy.

2018 interview with Socrates: What is ‘evil’? How should ‘good’ people respond? How are YOU responding to good and evil? (7 of ?)

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

“We cannot fix the exact point at which our empire shall stop; we have reached a position in which we must not be content with retaining but must scheme to extend it, for, if we cease to rule others, we are in danger of being ruled.” ~ Alcibiades in 415 BC according to Thucydides, arguing for Athenian empire similar to current US “leadership” rhetoric today for more war in Syria, Iran, etc., etc., etc.
language warning: Socrates and I speak in the same direct language that caused his execution for “corrupting the young.”

Socrates (arms open, broad genuine smile): Carl! Welcome back!

Carl: Soc! (bro hug)

S: How may I be of service?

C: I’ve been contemplating the meaning of Life (and here), Soc, and wanted to include you in this public inquiry. I know we’ve discussed this before, with your emphasis that the purpose of Life on Earth is exercising virtue for growth, truth, and service.

Shhhhhhh! Don’t mention the CIA record of meddling in other countries’ elections

Since World War II, during a supposed golden age of peace, the United States military has killed some 20 million people, overthrown at least 36 governments, interfered in at least 82 foreign elections, attempted to assassinate over 50 foreign leaders, and dropped bombs on people in over 30 countries. The United States is responsible for the deaths of 5 million people in Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia, and over 1 million just since 2003 in Iraq.

3 Things Happening RIGHT NOW That Could Wreak Havoc on the EconomyDaisy Luther

There are three events happening in the economy right now that could, alone, cause the prices of everything from food to the materials to make replacement parts for your vehicle to skyrocket. But if you combine them all together? We could be facing a perfect storm of economic havoc.

Iran is blocking oil exports from Saudi Arabia

Yesterday, Saudi Arabia announced that they were halting oil exports through a specific lane in the Red Sea due to attacks by “Yemen’s Iran-aligned rebels.” Reuters reported:

The trade war is getting more heated every day.

As soon as President Trump slapped tariffs on products from China, the EU, and even Canada, he opened the door to our exports also being subject to tariffs. While I think the intentions were good – to bring production back to the United States – the whole thing could turn out to be very, very bad for many Americans. We are going to see the prices of almost everything we buy increasing.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I agree with all three elements Daisy Luther cites as potentials for putting our economy - and lives - out of whack, and quickly.

What she does not mention, however, is the relentless 3 year US-enabled Saudi genocide of Yemen, where innocent people are being killed by Saudi military through direct airstrikes; starvation, and the potentially weaponised cholera, which is sweeping the country. The Houthi have not attacked Saudi oil vessels for absolutely no darned good reason; and while I hate violence, as a way of resolving anything, one can understand the Yemeni fury which drove these attacks.

Radioactive Particles From Fukushima Nuclear Disaster Found in California Wine: Lisa Egan

Radioactive particles from the Fukushima disaster have been detected in – of all places – California wines.

Inspired by tests conducted in the aftermath of the 1986 Chernobyl disaster, researchers at France’s National Center for Scientific Research, or CNRS, decided to test a series of California wines dating between 2009 and 2012. They looked for traces of radioactive particles, specifically cesium-137, a man-made isotope.

Smithsonian.com reported on the team’s findings:

Their findings, newly published in the pre-print online journal Arxiv, suggest that currents and atmospheric patterns carried radioactive particles across the Pacific, where they settled on grapevines growing in California’s wine regions. The team writes that bottles produced following the nuclear meltdown contain increased levels of cesium-137, with the cabernet revealing double the amount of pre-Fukushima radiation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF you happen to have a resonance with California wines, look at the lable for the date of the vintage, and chose accordingly.

In Bizarre Response, Twitter Tells Trump It Does Not "Shadowban" While Admitting It Does

In response to growing outrage over the practice of "shadow banning" conservatives, as confirmed last week by the liberal publication VICE and promptly tweeted about by President Trump, Twitter issued a strange explanation to "set the record straight," where they explicitly state that they do not engage in the practice - except then they describe how they do exactly that.

"People are asking us if we shadow ban. We do not. But let’s start with, “what is shadow banning?”

The best definition we found is this: deliberately making someone’s content undiscoverable to everyone except the person who posted it, unbeknownst to the original poster." -Twitter

In other words, Twitter says they don't shadow ban - it's just that tweets from people you follow may never appear unless you click directly into their timeline.

Mattis Rejects Viral Australian Report On Impending US Iran Strikes

A day after an Australian ABC report went viral with the claim that the White House has drawn up plans to strike Iran's alleged nuclear facilities as early as next month, Defense Secretary James Mattis said on Friday morning it's a "complete fiction".

The Australian Broadcast Corporation report cited high level defense and intelligence figures: "Senior figures in the Australia's Turnbull government have told the ABC they believe the US is prepared to bomb Iran's nuclear capability," and perhaps most alarmingly added, "The bombing could be as early as next month."

Fox News national security correspondent Jennifer Griffin questioned Mattis about the report on Friday:

I asked Mattis about report US preparing strikes against Iran.

MATTIS: "I have no idea where the Australian news people got that information. I am confident it is not something that is being considered right now. I think it is a complete, frankly, it's fiction."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Right now, I would tend to believe the reports by Australian Broadcasting Corporation, over what Mattis is saying; I believe, however, that they got their timing wrong.

Please remember; 4 November is the "drop dead date" which President Trump has imposed upon the entire world, for not buying Iranian oil.

That date is the Sunday, before the US primaries, which occur Tuesday, 6 November.

I think it very likely for the Trump administration, using Israel intel, to do some kind of definitive military action against Iran either on the 4th, or the 5th of November, to insure that the GOP hangs on to their majority come election day.
