Bad for America

During a recent exchange on “CBS Sunday Morning,” ancient newsreader Ted Koppel called Fox News pundit Sean Hannity “bad for America.” But some people truly are “Bad for America.” To benefit the Ted Koppels of the world, here’s a list of some of the more noteworthy offenders.

"Something Stinks Here" - CrowdStrike Revises, Retracts Parts Of Explosive Russian Hacking Report

Last week, I published two posts on cyber security firm CrowdStrike after becoming aware of inaccuracies in one of its key reports used to bolster the claim that operatives of the Russian government had hacked into the DNC. This is extremely important since the DNC hired CrowdStrike to look into its hack, and at the same time denied FBI access to its servers.

Here’s the problem. Yes, the FBI has agreed with CrowdStrike’s conclusion, but the FBI did not analyze the DNC servers because the DNC specifically denied the FBI access. This was noteworthy in its own right, but it takes on vastly increased significance given the serious errors in a related hacking report produced by the company.

MISSION CREEP: GOOGLE HOME DEVICE COULD ALLOW GOVERNMENT TO LISTEN IN ON PRIVATE CONVERSATIONS

A professor at the University of Texas thinks that “mission creep” could one day lead to the government listening in on private conversations in people’s homes via the new Google Home device.

Google Home is a newly launched wi-fi connected “smart speaker” that responds to voice commands with relevant information via a virtual speaking assistant. The device is a rival to Amazon Echo, which performs many of the same functions.

According to Dr. Philip Doty, associate dean of the School of Information at the University of Texas, privacy advocates are right to be concerned, especially in light of revelations that the CIA allegedly hacked Samsung Smart TVs to record private conversations.

“We now have a third party presence which not only can listen to us but can record us and share that information with retail giants, with third party information brokers and potentially with government,” Professor Doty told KXAN.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

the answer is simple; just don't buy the unit, or anything like it, and let these devices become the Edsels of the 21st century!!

THE SURVEILLANCE STATE BEHIND RUSSIA-GATE

Although many details are still hazy because of secrecy – and further befogged by politics – it appears House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes was informed last week about invasive electronic surveillance of senior U.S. government officials and, in turn, passed that information onto President Trump.

This news presents Trump with an unwelcome but unavoidable choice: confront those who have kept him in the dark about such rogue activities or live fearfully in their shadow. (The latter was the path chosen by President Obama. Will Trump choose the road less traveled?)

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The American Deep State wants to get President Trump out of office, and by any means necessary, because he is the absolute "stumbling block" to their agenda, which is to keep things precisely the way they are; increase wealth inequality; embrace globalism; and pursue even more wars of conquest, no matter the cost in blood and money.

Unfortunately, President Trump is by no means "out of the woods", in terms of being set up for some kind of epic fail in his presidency, which would be the "excuse" for taking his presidency down, while keeping up the facade that everything is perfectly normal, and the "allegedly routine" transfer of power happens with now Vice-President Pence becomes a done deal without much fuss on the part of the American public.

THE TRANSFORMATION OF OUR NATION INTO A SURVEILLANCE STATE IS ALMOST COMPLETE

The headlines are awash with the recent tensions with North Korea, and most are focused intently upon this act of the play that has been running hot for several years, now. Akin to the proverbial frog in cold water, however, we are not paying as much attention to the surveillance state that is continuing to wrap its tentacles around us. Eurasia is our ally, Eastasia is our enemy…and nobody notices that the chocolate ration has been diminished. While everyone focuses on what is reported in the headline news, everybody misses what is happening right before their eyes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are moments when I wish to heaven that Mike and I could immigrate to somewhere normal; unfortunately, at our age, and with our finances, that option will remain impossible for us.

DUI CHECKPOINTS NOW INCLUDE MOUTH SWABS THAT CAN TELL IF YOU SMOKED POT DAYS AGO

San Diego, CA – On St. Patrick’s Day, California’s southernmost metropolis decided to debut a roadside test for those suspected of driving under the influence of cannabis. Several “sobriety checkpoints” were set up throughout the city with the standard invasions of privacy, but this time they added a mouth swab test known as the Drager 5000.

If a cop suspects a driver of being high, they request that he or she take the mouth swab test, and perhaps a field sobriety test as well. They’re trying to gather evidence to incriminate you, although the mouth swab test is not mandatory.

The Drager 5000, already in use in other countries and cities such as Los Angeles and New York, detects the presence of various substances, including THC, the psychoactive ingredient in cannabis. The problem is, this test has absolutely zero ability to test actual impairment or level of intoxication.

DOT CREATING A NATIONWIDE SPYING DATABASE OF EVERYONE'S CELL PHONES, BLUETOOTH DEVICES AND LICENSE PLATES

A recent article in the Marin Independent Journal, reveals how Transportation Authorities (DOT's) across the country, are secretly spying on everyone's cellphones, GPS devices and Bluetooth devices. They claim spying is cheaper than other alternatives..

A new study using data collected from mobile devices, details the increasing flow of vehicles into Marin from the East Bay and San Francisco. The DOT claims that "only mobile signals are tracked, not the user’s identity."

Don't believe it.

Spying on motorists electronic devices is cheaper

The Transportation Authority of Marin (TAM) also claims that spying on everyone's cell phones, Bluetooth connected devices and license plates is cheaper than mail surveys.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In an obvious, frontal assault on the 4th Amendment to the Constitution, which prevents unreasonable search and seizure against the US's citizens, this approach will NOT keep the American people safe from harm's way.

This creates "data overload", where information cannot be useful, because there is just too much of it to make any sense, and the baddies have already encrypted their communications to the point where the US government's "alphabet soup" cannot decrypt it.

On Tuesday, she urged voters to resist Trump policies that she said included suspicion of refugees and voter suppression in some areas. "These are bad policies that will hurt people and take our country in the wrong direction," Clinton said, relaying what she had become one of her mantras since the November election. "It's the kinds of things you think about when you take long walks in the woods," she said. "Resist, insist, persist, enlist."

Cyber Firm Rewrites Part of Disputed Russian Hacking Report

U.S. cybersecurity firm CrowdStrike has revised and retracted statements it used to buttress claims of Russian hacking during last year's American presidential election campaign. The shift followed a VOA report that the company misrepresented data published by an influential British think tank.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Hillary campaign, the DNC, and the corporate media, all cited the Crowdstrike report as absolute unassailable proof Russia hacked the DNC computers, even though the Hillary campaign had refused to allow the FBI or anyone else access to the servers to verify the claim.

The pedophiles in DC run rampant, and before President Trump’s crackdown, only the most incompetent of them were caught. Case in point, Anthony Weiner. Unable to learn his lesson despite repeated public exposures, the disgraced former Congressman is back in the spotlight for sexting a minor with his perverted rape fantasies. What’s even more sickening is the level of cover up the Deep State is running for Weiner, including FBI Director James Comey. And now, Weiner’s abuse victim has spoken up.

McCain: “The New World Order Is Under Enormous Strain” (Video)

The Benedict Arnold of the 21st century, John McCain has again revealed his true motivations. In a recent interview with the EU Observer, following the collapse of Obamacare Lite, McCain has again showed that he speaks for the globalists, not America.

According to him, the New World Order is under enormous strain and that the world ‘cries out’ for American and European leadership. Perhaps, McCain should take a poll of a citizen in the Middle East to see if they really are crying out for American and European leadership.

In the following video, Right Wing News looks at McCain’s agenda of promoting failed globalist policies. After championing pointless wars around the world which have only cost American lives and increased threats to our national security, McCain refuses to stop.

FBI Secretly Compiling U.S. Citizen Facial-Recognition Images (Video)

We Americans have already traded away much in terms of liberty and privacy in the name of national security. And as surveillance technology becomes ever more advanced, it may only be a matter of time before we live in a complete surveillance state. Take for example the fact that over 400 million pictures of American faces are stored in local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies. Of course, the FBI claims that it only stores criminal mugshots, conveniently omitting all the images held by local and state law enforcement agencies; which the FBI has easy access to in at least 18 states.

In the following video, Right Wing News looks at America’s growing surveillance state, and how it shows no sign of stopping. The elites have deliberately ingrained a culture of pervasive fear in its citizens, making it all too easy to continue to strip away our liberties; all for our own good of course.

Which one of these now honored figures believed in gay rights, interchangeable gender roles or the right of a young man who says that he/she’s a woman to have access to girls’ showers in a public school. Which one of these figures would have defended the inalienable constitutional right of an illegal immigrant and felon not to be deported, the way Feinstein’s constituents do?

War in This Mideast Country is 'Becoming a PR Disaster for Saudi Arabia, US

The bloody war in Yemen is turning out to be a PR disaster for Saudi Arabia and the US. Furthermore, the Trump administration considers providing more military support for the Saudi-led coalition. Radio Sputnik spoke with Dr. Christopher Davidson, associate professor in Middle East politics at Durham University.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US government is complicit in Saudi Arabia's war crimes in Yemen which include:

The killing and maiming for life of Yemeni children

Images of wounded and murdered children from Saudi war strikes

The starving of Yemeni children to the point of death by malnutrition by blockading their ports:

Images: Yemeni children starving to death from malnutrition, courtesy of Saudi Arabia's blocking Yemen's ports

And the massive spike in deformities because children are being poisoned in the womb through the Saudi use of depleted uranium in Yemen:

Video: Saudi soldiers using depleted uranium weapons in Yemen

I am disgusted by the actions of my government in this matter, and its partnership with Saudi Arabia in these war crimes.

But the only thing I can do, as a Christian Pacifist Activist and Witness, is to document these horrors until these horrors stop.

The Political Parties Are An Illusion Designed To “Relegate The Governed To A Position Barely Above That Of Cattle”

The political parties are an illusion, but there is one thing that is not illusory: the absolute desire of government to rule without the consent of the governed and to relegate the governed to a position barely above that of cattle. The President needs to take the gloves off and throw the Marquis of Queensbury rules aside in order to win. We the People need to help him do it. If not, we’re going to lose this country even before the next presidential election and fall into the hands of the globalists. Should that happen, all our freedoms will die, and so will we as a nation. The time to act is now, and the responsibility to act is ours.

As with many another complex, opaque systems in the U.S., only those toiling in the murky depths of the healthcare system know just how broken the entire system is. Only those dealing daily with the perverse incentives, the Kafkaesque procedures, the endlessly negative unintended consequences, the soul-deadening paper-shuffling, the myriad forms of fraud, the recalcitrant patients who don’t follow recommendations but demand to be magically returned to health anyway, and of course the hopelessness of the financial future of a system with runaway costs, a rapidly aging populace and profiteering cartels focused on maintaining their rackets regardless of the cost to the nation or the health of its people.

You will never hear these truths discussed in the mainstream

Unfortunately, our society is in a period of transition in which the public is skeptical of mainstream media influences, but still pays attention to them. While people are rapidly abandoning these “news sources” for more independent fair, this may be too little too late. As I have outlined above, there are numerous questions which are never asked; numerous solutions that are never presented. The majority remains oblivious to true options and true actions. They remain oblivious to certain truths. The mainstream may have already done all the damage it can do. All that is left is for alternative analysts to pick up the pieces, ask the right questions, fight for the right causes and see if we can salvage this mess in time.

Who Are the Neocon Traitors Who Have Sold-Out America (Video)

The neo-conservatives, with their insistent push to use American military might worldwide to further their own agendas have done great damage to America. Under the guise of patriotism, these neocons have sold out the nation, and it’s about time that America wakes up and sees the true faces of these traitors. And chief among these neocons in the spotlight today? None other than John McCain.

In the following video, Right Wing News looks at just exactly how these neocon traitors have been working for the globalist agenda using the cover of patriotism. The truth is these neocon warmongers are not fighting for America’s interests and have in fact got our nation involved in numerous illegal wars all around the world.

Cheney: Russian Cyberattack On Election Could Be Viewed As ‘Act Of War’

Former Vice President Dick Cheney said in a speech that there’s “no question” Russia attempted to manipulate the U.S. presidential election and that many would consider that “an act of war.”

George W. Bush’s former No. 2 explained Monday at The Economic Times’ Global Business Summit in New Delhi that he thinks the “major concern” now facing America is national security. Cheney pointed to Russia’s “cyber warfare, a cyberattack on the United States — the fact that [Russian President Vladimir Putin] took his capabilities in the cyber area and used it to try to influence our election.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Vice-President Cheney, a word please; given that you lied outright, through your teeth, to "sell" the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq to the American people, what in the name of heaven (or hell) makes you think you have any credibility whatsoever, with this baseless charge?!?

The short answer is, none, sir.

Please go back to that dark, airless cave from which you emerged to make this speech, never to lie to the American people again.

AIPAC IS BACK IN TOWN!

Spring in Washington would not be complete without the city’s famous cherry blossoms and the annual “Policy Conference” meeting of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC). The 15,000 plus participants began arriving on Sunday and will be here at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center until tomorrow morning, at which point many of them will descend on Congress like a swarm of ravenous locusts to make sure that our Solons on the Potomac are doing what is right by Israel.

AIPAC is the most powerful foreign policy lobby in Washington. It’s annual budget exceeds $77 million plus it has an endowment of $100 million. It has nearly 400 employees and also supports local chapters and initiatives throughout the United States.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Police search in the mosque of Iliopetra, Topeiros municipality, took place after a tip off.

Two fire arms and a large number of ammunition (30 pieces) of diverse calibers were found. One of the guns had a silencer. The fire arms and the ammunition were hidden in the yard of the mosque.

The imam who is in charge of the mosque has been called in by local authorities.
According to other local media, the weapon were found in the imam’s home and the minaret.

TRUMP TO SIGN "ENERGY INDEPENDENCE" ORDER KILLING OBAMA'S CLIMATE CHANGE INITIATIVES

Coming off a brutal Trumpcare defeat, delivered by members of his own party no less, Trump has decided to return to a strategy of progressing his policy initiatives through executive order. As such, later today President Trump is set to sign a sweeping new "Energy Independence" executive order aimed at promoting domestic oil, coal and natural gas production by reversing much of Obama's efforts to address climate change via his "Clean Power Plan".

Obama’s Clean Power Plan was designed to cut carbon dioxide emissions from electricity by 32% by 2030 compared to 2005 levels and resulted in the collapse of the coal industry, including several large bankruptcies. That said, the initiative has been in legal limbo since the Supreme Court stayed it while it was reviewed by a federal appeals court. The Trump administration now is expected ask that court to put the matter on hold to allow it time to revise or undo the measure -- an action environmentalists have vowed to challenge.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump, a word, please: this alleged "Energy Independence" puts this country back to dependence on fossil fuels, which have driven these insane wars of conquest in places like Iraq; Afghanistan; and Libya.

The US and UK have some of the finest engineering and mathematical minds in the world. Your "Energy Independence" plan should be planning to put some of these minds together, in a collaboration toward renewable, alternative independence which can power a tank or an airplane.

That, sir, would be a move forward toward REAL energy independence, and stop the need for wars to expropriate those resources to which we have no moral right; regime changing the governments of those countries from which we are expropriating said resources; and insure that those resources are only sold in US dollars.

That would save this government a lot of money, Mr. President!!

AFTER DRAMATIC OBAMACARE FAILURE, TRUMP NOW FACES A LOOMING GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN HE MAY NOT BE ABLE TO PREVENT

If you thought that the Obamacare debacle was bad, just wait until you see what happens next. The continuing resolution that is currently funding the government expires on April 28th, and if a new funding agreement is not reached prior to that time, there will be a government shutdown like we witnessed in 2013 starting on April 29th. Unfortunately, as I will explain below, if a government shutdown happens it may go for a lot longer than just a couple of weeks this time around.
April 28th may sound like it is quite some time away, but because the congressional calendar has so many “holes” in it, there is actually not very much time for Congress to act.

If you can believe it, there are only 12 “legislative days” between now and April 28th, and if something is not done on one of those 12 days the government will shut down on April 29th.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is truly one of the most dysfunctional moments in American government I have ever witnessed; and in light of the fact that I turn 68 in a couple of months, I have seen a lot of these!!

U.S. TO SEND HUNDREDS OF PARATROOPERS INTO MOSUL

On Sunday, reports began emerging that the Pentagon was intending to send more combat troops into western Mosul, the latest in a long line of escalations of US military involvement in the battle over Mosul, with an eye toward getting Iraq’s stalled offensive back on track.

Yesterday, the Military Times finally got the specifics of the deployment, with officials saying that two infantry companies and a route-clearance platoon will be sent to Mosul, paratroopers numbers somewhere around 300 fighters, which will officially be labeled an “advise and assist” operation.

And a “temporary” deployment. Officials have labeled thousands of the ground troops in Iraq as “temporary” to avoid putting them in the official count of how many US troops are deployed to Iraq, even though in this case, as in so many others, there is no specific deadline for ending the deployment.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation; this is an open-ended deployment which may last well after Mosul is retaken by the Iraqi government, and we have not a clue as to how many are actually being deployed, or where they might be deployed post-Mosul.

TONY PODESTA MADE $500K LOBBYING FOR CHINESE FIRM CONVICTED OF ILLEGAL SALES TO IRAN

Democratic super-lobbyist Tony Podesta grossed more than $500,000 to represent a Chinese company criminally convicted in March of sending illegal shipments of telecom equipment to Iran, The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group has learned.

The seriousness of the illegal sales to Iran were so extreme and continued for so long — from 2010 to last year — the Department of Justice (DOJ) imposed a record $1.19 billion fine on the ZTE Telecommunications company, making it the largest penalty ever imposed in a U.S. sanctions case.

The Chinese firm hired the Podesta Group, one of Washington’s biggest and best-connected lobbying companies in the nation’s capital, in January 2016. ZTE retained Podesta’s personal help as negotiations intensified for a final resolution with DOJ during the final year of President Barack Obama’s tenure in the White House.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I love the smell of slimy hypocrisy in the morning; and Tony Podesta just reeks of it!!

And who in this government is going to prosecute HIM for what he did for this Chinese company?!?

No one; the rich rarely eat their own!!

GOVERNMENT MANDATORY HEALTH CARE IS STILL TYRANNY

House Speaker Paul Ryan said Friday that pulling the GOP leadership's bill to overhaul the US healthcare system from the House floor meant Obamacare would remain "the law of the land" for the foreseeable future.

Government Mandatory Health Care Is Still Tyranny

The failure of the GOP to repeal Obamacare proves once again that the establishment power structure maintains their grip on political policy. The incompetence of Paul Ryan is more closely described as a propensity to be a faithful stooge for the corporatist agenda. It is because of this assessment, which reflects the current state of conduct where nothing ever changes or actually improves society that keeps the malevolent system in place. Regretfully, Big Government is now the GOP Platform.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What our readers, and listeners, need to do, is to educate themselves about nutrition and exercise, which sounds really basic, but there is absolutely a lot to learn, that your doctors won't tell you, because they are not profitable if you learn to keep yourself as well as possible; it is just that simple.

For example, has any doctor you have ever visited mentioned that turmeric appears to stop and slow the rate of cancer growth in the human body?!?

Turmeric's medicinal properties

THE OVERLAPPING CRISES ARE COMING, REGARDLESS OF WHO'S IN POWER

No leader can reverse the dynamics of mutually reinforcing crises.

Commentators seem split into three camps: those who see Trump as a manifestation of smouldering social/economic ills, those who see Trump and his supporters as the cause of those ills, and those who see Trump as both manifestation and cause of those ills.

I think this misses the point, which is the overlapping crises unfolding in this decade-- diminishing returns on skyrocketing debts, the demographics of an aging populace, the erosion of the social contract and the profound disunity of political elites--will continue expanding and feeding on each other regardless of who is in power.

Historical analysis seems to swing between the "Big Man/Woman" narrative that views individuals as the drivers of history, and the "Big Forces/it's all economics" narrative that sees individual leaders as secondary to the broad sweep of forces beyond the control of any individual or group.

IXmaps wants to “make visible the secret, dangerous, often illegal forms of surveillance that are increasingly becoming part of everyday life.”

Internet data pinballs across national borders, and for Canadians this means potentially exposing it to eavesdropping by US-based corporations and the National Security Agency.

Now, an interactive mapping tool named Internet Exchange Mapping (IXmaps), re-launched for public use today, will show you how—and how easily—you data can be spied on by tracing the oftentimes byzantine routes data takes when traversing the internet.

‘TREATED LIKE DOGS’: MOM SLAMS ‘POWER TRIPPING TSA’ OVER PAT DOWN (VIDEO)

A US mother says her family were “treated like dogs” and “deliberately” kept from their flight by Dallas Fort Worth International Airport security, who carried out a pat down screening on her child.

Jennifer Williamson’s angry Facebook post said her family had “been through hell” after her son Aaron - who suffers from a neurological disorder - was pulled aside by agents from the Transportation Security Administration and subjected to a security screening.

Williamson said TSA agents delayed the boy for over an hour, thus missing their flight and being re-routed.

“We have been through hell this morning. They detained Aaron for well over an hour at DFW,” she posted. “We were treated like dogs because I requested they attempt to screen him in other ways per TSA rules. He has SPD and I didn’t want my child given a pat down like this.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have been patted down in such a manner flying from Kauai back to Oahu, and it was all I could do to just hold my tongue, and not scream obscenities at the wretched individual doing the pat down.

I kept saying to myself, almost like a mantra, "Remember, Claire; this is a woman pathologically incapable of getting a job at a fast food place; that is why she wound up as a TSA agent!!"

Don’t Expect To Live Much Longer — US Navy Prepares Decapitating Attack Against Russia

As history teaches, an arms race will never make anybody victorious. Nobody gains, everybody loses. It took a series of risky crises, like the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis, and several cycles of an extremely costly arms race to realize how dangerous the nuclear threat is. The history of arms control reveals the wisdom of Soviet (Russian) and US leaders finding ways to cap their arsenals even in the heat of the Cold War. Now all the efforts applied in the past may go down the drain as the US is going back to the once tried policy of seeking nuclear dominance. Now it starts again at the time the whole system of arms control is on the brink of collapse. The tide must be turned. Nuclear arms control treaties should have become a top priority of the bilateral relationship.

The Evil of Political Correctness

I believe I first heard the term “political correctness” used on a Saturday Night Live show back in about 1980. And I thought it was just a joke—like most of the things on SNL. But it turned out to be a real thing, and it’s been building momentum, for at least the last two generations. Where is it going to end? I’m not sure, but it’s just one more termite eating away at the foundations of Western civilization itself. People that go along with this stuff aren’t just crazy. They’re actually evil. They’re the same types who rallied around Robespierre during the French revolution, Lenin during the Russian Revolution, Hitler in ‘30s Germany, and Mao in China. It’s a certain personality type.

How Chicago’s Jewish Federation funds anti-Muslim hatred

A Chicago-based group that claims to “stand against hate” has contributed hundreds of thousands of dollars to organizations identified by the Southern Poverty Law Center as “anti-Muslim extremists,” tax documents reveal.

According to an investigation by the Chicago chapter of Jewish Voice for Peace, the Jewish United Fund of Metropolitan Chicago, also called the Jewish Federation, gave nearly $650,000 to Daniel Pipes’ Middle East Forum between 2011 and 2014.

The group also contributed $26,000 to Steven Emerson’s Investigative Project on Terrorism during the same time period.

Emerson and Pipes have a long history of disseminating forged or false information with the aim of maligning Muslims in the United States.

While ‘illegal immigrant’ is a much more accurate term to describe the situation, the dishonest media are starting to paint the usage of the word as racist rhetoric. Simply ridiculous; almost as ridiculous as cities actively not co-operating with national law enforcement agencies. We are talking of course, about sanctuary cities.

Concealed Weapon Detection System Being Implemented For The First Time. Coming To A Neighborhood Near You?

I envision a lot of law-abiding citizens being approached by security and then being asked to leave the property, simply for concealing their legal firearm. Alternatively, they could be asked to leave their firearm in their car, opening it up to theft. Or, as many casinos have, they will let visitors store their firearm in a safe deposit box on property. Lots of good it’ll do, though, if you need it.

Secretary of State Slyly Outmaneuvers Unconstitutional Activist Judges (Video)

If a person from a certain country has a statistically higher chance of committing acts of terrorism, isn’t it rational to implement tighter screening procedures for people from those countries? This perfectly logical stance is of course, labelled by the left as ‘racism’ and ‘profiling’, which is absolutely insane. One only has to look at the crazy ideological opposition to President Trump’s ‘Muslim ban’ which is not a ban on Muslims, or any sort of ban at all.

FBI to Investigate Right-Wing Sites for Russian Influence – Won’t Commit to Investigating Obama (Video)

While most of the mainstream media has been fully co-opted to the agenda of the Deep State, the rise of alternative media has posed a challenge to their control of the narrative. Case in point – the election of Trump despite the constant attacks by the mainstream media; something the Deep State most definitely did not want to happen. And since these sites pose a threat to the Deep State’s control, they must be stopped, and it looks like they are using their FBI stooges to do it.

In the following video, Right Wing News looks at how FBI Director James Comey, who famously refused to press charges against Hillary Clinton and has arrogantly dismissed the Trump wiretapping claims, is now getting the agency to investigate connections between such right wing sites and the Russians.

In this case, NBC News at one point had reported that a top State Department official had instructed investigators to cease investigation into sexual misconduct by State Department personnel and at least one ambassador. And who was in charge of the State Department at that time? None other than Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Probably More Evidence CNN Colluded with the Clinton Campaign than Anything Else (Video)

The entire Trump-Russian ‘conspiracy’ that the dishonest media keeps pushing forward is nothing but a smokescreen where routine communications are turned into sinister plots. Hard evidence is of course, nowhere to be found; you can tell by the words such as ‘may have’, ‘possibly’, and ‘suspected’ which is standard newspeak when a story can’t stand on its own two legs. And with all this nonsense about collusion, there is probably more evidence that CNN has colluded with the Clinton campaign compared to any Trump Russia collusion.

In the following video, Right Wing News looks as the history of collusion between the Clinton News Network and Hillary Clinton herself. One of the so-called trump cards of the Trump-Russia conspiracy has been the leaked intelligence dossier by the former British intelligence officer, something that CNN itself has referred to as ‘unverified’.

There was high drama last week when Rep. Devin Nunes announced at the White House that he had seen evidence that the communications of the Donald Trump campaign people, and perhaps even Trump himself, had been “incidentally collected” by the U.S. government. If true, this means that someone authorized the monitoring of Trump campaign communications using Section 702 of the FISA Act. Could it have been then-President Obama? We don’t know. Could it have been other political enemies looking for something to harm the Trump campaign or presidency? It is possible.

Despite Campaign Promises, Trump Set To Outdo Obama On Military Adventurism

When asked about Trump attitudes toward war, MIT professor and renowned linguist and political analyst Noam Chomsky told MintPress News that the idea that he was an anti-war candidate “was based on his criticisms of the Iraq and Libya attacks (which, contrary to his lies, he supported) and his ambiguous statements about reducing tensions with Russia – a good thing, if he meant it. But his actual policies are extremely dangerous.”

“[This includes] the sharp increase in the military budget, the weakening of restrictions on drone strikes, and the wild charges about Iran,” Chomsky said, adding that what really worries those who pay attention to these issues “is his megalomania and unpredictability…we know how someone who goes berserk over minor slights might react in a moment of crisis.”

Those who are trying to find a way to improve relations with Russia should be praised, not scapegoated.

Breaking: Washington Sponsored State of “Great Kurdistan” To Be Created in Syria And Iraq.

This report is yet to be fully confirmed (GR Editor)

Inside Syria Media Center has obtained proofs of plans to create a state of Great Kurdistan.

According to the documents at our disposal, the U.S. authorities and the Syrian Kurds reached an agreement past week on the boundaries of the Kurdish autonomy in the territory of Syria, which had been guaranteed to Kurds in case of capturing Raqqa and Al-Tabqah (34 miles to the West of Raqqa). This confirms the reports about the U.S. plans to divide Syria.

In addition, Washington has already defined the boundaries of the new state of the Great Kurdistan on the territory of Syria and Iraq. It is to be created after ISIS defeat and the final collapse of Syrian Arab Republic. According to the U.S. military, Kurds remain the only force capable of defeating ISIS.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF this report is true, I have to wonder: has the leadership in Baghdad or Damascus been consulted about their involuntarily losing bits of their countries to establish an Independent Kurdistan?!?

Have either of these countries consented to this balkanisation, which is precisely what Israel wanted as an outcome from the US invasion and occupation of Iraq?!?

I have to think that the short answer is, no.

And will this new nation become yet another place from which the US military will be projecting more military power in the Middle East?!?

US General: 5,000 More Troops Needed for Afghanistan

Gen. Nicholson now says he wants another 5,000 US and NATO troops, saying he believes the US needs that many to “break the stalemate” in the war. Nicholson has repeatedly labeled the conflict a “stalemate” in recent weeks, which appears to be an overestimation of the situation, with the Taliban continuing to gain ground against Afghan security forces.

The US has repeatedly run into this problem in Afghanistan, with the government’s forces unable to stand up to the Taliban by themselves, and NATO growing weary of continuing to prop them up. This has led to escalations and deescalation for years, constantly trying to save the Afghan government from outright defeat.

Nicholson argued that because 9/11 involved Afghanistan, a loss in the country would embolden terrorists globally.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

General Nicholson, a word, please.

As you well know, Afghanistan had nothing to do with 9/11: it is the self-perpetuating lie/narrative that the US government continues to flog as its "justification" for having invaded, and continuing to occupy this country with US and NATO troops.

Afghanistan had nothing to do with 9/11

There is, after 16 years and counting, absolutely zero military metric by which Afghanistan can be characterised as a military success.

The invasion, and occupation was all about rights to pipeline routes and the rights to that embarrassment of natural resources Afghanistan which Afghanistan possesses.

Pipeline to Afghanistan

Afghanistan's mineral wealth

And lastly, sir,I have an incredible set of concepts which would stop any terrorism against the US or any of its assets overseas, and most probably very quickly:

1. Create working alternative energy which does not leave the US dependent on fossil fuel.

2. Stop mucking about in other people's countries to expropriate resources to which the US government has no moral right.

3. Stop regime changing those countries to become western-centric.

4. Stop insisting that those resources only be sold in US-denominated currency.

YOU'RE WELCOME!!! :-)

Defense Secretary Seeks Deeper US Involvement in Yemen War

Defense Secretary James Mattis is said to be pushing for the White House to remove all restrictions, placed during the waning months of President Obama’s presidency, on US military support for the Saudi invasion of Yemen, seeking deeper direct US involvement in fighting the Yemeni Shi’ites.

Mattis is said to be pushing National Security Adviser HR McMaster to agree that US support would combat the “common threat” the US and Saudi Arabia face in Yemen, which appears to be continued Shi’ite autonomy in the northern half of the country.

The US, of course, has already been directly involved in the Saudi war in Yemen from the beginning, providing in-air refueling for Saudi warplanes and participating in a naval blockade that has caused massive food shortages across northern Yemen.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sec-Def Mattis, a word please: by participating in the Saudi genocide in Yemen, which has involved the assassination of wide swathes of civilians, including children; starving Yemeni children to death with malnutrition from the port blockades, and the poisoning of children in the womb through the Saudi's use of depleted uranium weapons, the United States government is complicit in its war crimes.

Mike and I are way too poor, and too old, to be accepted as a citizen of any other country at this stage in our lives; because right now, if Mike and I could, we would!

That being said, I find it morally reprehensible that both you, and President Trump, have absolutely no qualm of conscience about continuing to aid and abet these horrific acts on the part of the Saudi military.

Syria Threatens Scud Strikes If Israel Attacks Again

Israel had been intermittently attacking Syrian military targets throughout the Syrian Civil War, but that conflict has escalated dramatically in recent weeks, with Syria resisting larger Israeli strikes with anti-aircraft missiles, and Israel continuing to strike, and threatening to wipe out Syria’s air defenses outright.

Syria has a considerable cache of Scud missiles, which it acquired over the years in large part related to their ongoing arms race with Israel. Syrian officials reportedly threatened to hit military bases in northern Israel, and potentially strikes against the Haifa Port if Israel attacks civilian targets in Syria.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Syrian President Al-Assad, a word, please; do NOT give the Israeli government the "justification" for Israel and the US to go into Syria militarily, by using these scud weapons.

Right now, your best recourse is appealing to Russia President Putin for the best defensive weapons they can provide you.

US Sends More Combat Troops to Mosul in Latest Escalation

Iraqi officials had previously predicted they’d have western Mosul fully “liberated” by the end of March. With just a few days left, the offensive remains largely stalled however, with the offensive moving at a snail’s pace. Hoping to speed things up, the US has announced another escalation, sending more combat troops into the city.

The size of this escalation is as yet unknown, with the Pentagon only announcing that the deployment was being ordered, putting more combat troops into the city for “advise and assist” operations. These appear to be some of the troops previously tapped to go to Kuwait.

The only clue officials would give to the size of the new deployment is that it would not “reunite the entire brigade,” which means that the new deployment is at least less than 2,500. The troops are being considered “temporary,” like many of the troops in Iraq, which means they aren’t part of the official count.

The Useful and the Useless

It will come as a surprise to many, but governments cannot suspend reality. Their arsenal, when things break down, comes down to their arsenal: the capacity to coerce. Violence or its threat enables governments to exact compliance. Proponents of government power invariably see themselves exercising it. Once the ship hits the iceberg, it will be obvious that governments’ guns are not wands, freeing citizens from the necessity of producing as much or more than they consume. They cannot compel innovators to innovate or producers to produce. While coercive power comes from one end of a gun, none of the powers that produce progress (and the gun) magically materialize at the other end.

HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS GATHER IN MASSIVE PROTEST TO US SPONSORED SAUDI TERRORISM IN YEMEN

Sana’a, Yemen — Hundreds of thousands took to the streets in the Yemeni capital of Sana’a to protest the second anniversary of the invasion by Saudi Arabia, as well as the ongoing military offensive by the loosely U.S.-backed, Saudi-led coalition of nine nations attempting to crush the Shia Houthi rebellion.

“I participated in the protests against the aggression (by the Saudi-led coalition), maybe our voice will be heard by the world over to stop the war,” the Associated Press quoted protester, Ahmed Mohsen, who, along with war-weary throngs of others — participated to try to call attention to the U.S.’ other major conflict.

“Two years of wanton violence and bloodshed, thousands of deaths and millions of people desperate for their basic rights to food, water, health and security,” railed UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, “enough is enough.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Not only are the Saudi troops murdering and starving children in Yemen:

Images: wounded and killed children by Saudi bombing raids in Yemen

images: Yemeni children starving to death due to Saudi ports blockade

The Saudis are also poisoning the people of Yemen, and causing massive amounts of child deformities and deaths through the use of depleted uranium weapons.

Increase in infant deformities in Yemen suggest that the US/UK supplied Saudi Arabia with depleted uranium weapons

Media coverage of uranium weapons and the spiraling sickness has been meager. Malak Hamden said when she and colleagues published the 2010 Fallujah study, “CNN said something, but no newspapers touched the story.” A BBC reporter told Williams the public doesn’t want to know about uranium weapons. In the meantime, the United States continues to build them. Williams notes that U.S. Patent Office records show Lockheed Martin and Raytheon hold patents for enhanced bombs and cruise missile warheads that include uranium options.

For Soldiers With Gulf War Illness, a Clue to the Mystery in Their Cells Today, with the U.S., Britain, France, Saudi Arabia and Russia bombing Syria, and with the Saudis bombing and the U.S. firing drones into Yemen—with some of the same kinds of weapons unleashed in Iraq—it is likely that the people living there, along with fleeing refugees, will suffer just as the Iraqis and veterans have. As Busby notes, uranium oxide dust is like a bomb that keeps going off. “People’s genes are damaged for generations. Scientists found this in 22 generations of mice, after Chernobyl. The only way mutated genes disappear is when carriers don’t have children.”

Warning: horrifically graphic video of Yemeni children born with severe birth defects, generated by Saudi Arabia's use of depleted uranium in Yemen.

Infant deformities in Yemen linked to Saudi-led bombardment (GRAPHIC VIDEO)

I think there must be a very special place in hell designated for the people who manufacture these weapons, sign off on the use of these weapons, and use weapons like this.

Poisoning children in the womb is one of the most morally vile, and reprehensible forms of child abuse I can imagine; it not only destroys the child and the child's family: it also destroys the future of a country, because it frightens young couples into not having children, because there is no remedy against this toxic substance, and the damage depleted uranium does to human DNA.

And if you look at the children in the video, you will see that the damage is very similar, or nearly identical to, the damage the US military created in the Iraqi town of Fallujah, where depleted uranium was also used.

The Evidence That Russia Hacked The DNC Is Collapsing

These alleged “hacker groups” are not associated with any known individuals in any way connected to Russian intelligence: instead, they are identified by the tools they use, the times they do their dirty work, the nature of the targets, and other characteristics based on the history of past intrusions.

Yet as Jeffrey Carr and other cyberwarfare experts have pointed out, this methodology is fatally flawed. “It’s important to know that the process of attributing an attack by a cybersecurity company has nothing to do with the scientific method,” writes Carr:

“Claims of attribution aren’t testable or repeatable because the hypothesis is never proven right or wrong. Neither are claims of attribution admissible in any criminal case, so those who make the claim don’t have to abide by any rules of evidence (i.e., hearsay, relevance, admissibility).”

SAS ON THE STREETS SAS troops ‘to be deployed to London’s streets permanently’ in wake of Westminster attack in bid to bolster security in capital

SAS TROOPS are to be deployed to London’s streets permanently in the wake of the Westminster attack to bolster security in the capital, it’s been reported.

Specialist soldiers will reportedly be placed on standby at a secret location in the city centre for at least the next year.

It comes as a ring of steel was erected around London’s landmarks to strengthen defences and prevent another attack.

Elite officers, normally based in Hereford, will be on an “immediate notice to move” and be armed with special “take-down” bullets, according to the Daily Star.

They’ll also reportedly be able to enter buildings using explosives or “fast-rope” from helicopters on to roofs.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This appears as though the British government is trying to appear to be "doing something" to stop further attacks, but I strongly suspect that these efforts will not be effective.

And the reason I say this, is that what truly drives radicalisation and the ensuing terrorism rising from this radicalism, will never, ever get truly addressed.

The US and UK have a very martial appetite for invading countries; expropriating resources from those countries to which they have no moral right; making sure that the regime changes in those countries produce only Western-centric governments; and insuring that those resources are only sold in the "correct" currencies, i.e., (soon) the British Pound and the American dollar.

And those individuals in those countries for whom such actions are a really raw deal, have no voice; and if they protest, or become radicalised against this miserable imperialistic treatment, they are shot and killed. Innocents get shot at killed, like the innocent civilians in Mosul who were assassinated by US troops last week.

U.S. Investigating Mosul Strikes Said to Have Killed Up to 200 Civilians

To the thinking of those who profit mightily from empire, such deaths are simply "collateral damage", and of no consequence whatsoever; but to the people who have lost innocent loved ones, or whose loved ones have been maimed for life, as has happened in the extrajudicial assassinations by US drones in Afghanistan, these murders are a moral outrage.

How long does it take for that moral outrage against the deaths of innocents to be manipulated into revenge, and what form will that revenge take?!?

This is the question that no one in either the UK or US governments want to address; it's the geopolitical equivalent to kryptonite, because neither country wants to admit complicity in creating the problem in the first place, in this resource war.

But I do have a remedy for this, Prime Minister May and President Trump, and I encourage you to listen closely to what I am about to suggest.

The UK and the US have some of the finest universities and engineering minds on this planet. There should be dedicated funding, and joint collaboration of the top researchers in the US and UK on alternative energy resources that can move a tank, or enable a jet to fly.

Only then will both countries be able to end their resource wars, and focus on repairing internal infrastructure; and perhaps healing some of the intense damage these resource wars have done to hapless countries like Afghanistan, Iraq, and Yemen. The harm from the use of depleted uranium weapons in the last two-named countries will last for generations, as you well know.

Trump Budget Has Some Good Cuts… But it raises spending on the merchants of death…

It’s interesting that Trump & Co. have cut funding for US allies, culture, education, the poor, and just about everything else except the Pentagon and Israel. Not a penny was reduced from Israel’s recent grant of $38 billion in arms spending over ten years. Not a peep about this from Congress or Trump. An honest war tax would show Americans the real cost of their imperial adventures and spare their children from having to pay for such dumb wars as Afghanistan and the Mideast.

FLASHBACK 2014 - Government agents 'directly involved' in most high-profile US terror plots

Nearly all of the highest-profile domestic terrorism plots in the United States since 9/11 featured the "direct involvement" of government agents or informants, a new report says.

Some of the controversial "sting" operations "were proposed or led by informants", bordering on entrapment by law enforcement. Yet the courtroom obstacles to proving entrapment are significant, one of the reasons the stings persist.

The lengthy report, released on Monday by Human Rights Watch, raises questions about the US criminal justice system's ability to respect civil rights and due process in post-9/11 terrorism cases. It portrays a system that features not just the sting operations but secret evidence, anonymous juries, extensive pretrial detentions and convictions significantly removed from actual plots.

FLASHBACK 2014 - US: Terrorism Prosecutions Often An Illusion

The US Justice Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) have targeted American Muslims in abusive counterterrorism “sting operations” based on religious and ethnic identity, Human Rights Watch and Columbia Law School’s Human Rights Institute said in a report released today. Many of the more than 500 terrorism-related cases prosecuted in US federal courts since September 11, 2001, have alienated the very communities that can help prevent terrorist crimes.

You have one day to stop Congress from giving away your web browsing history

Last week, on a party-line vote, the Senate voted to repeal the Federal Communications Commission’s 2016 broadband privacy rules giving consumers the power to choose how their ISPs use and share their personal data. Tomorrow, the House of Representatives will vote, and if the House also votes to repeal the rules, the bill will go to President Trump, who is expected to sign it.

The consequences of repeal are simple: ISPs like Comcast, AT&T, and Charter will be free to sell your personal information to the highest bidder without your permission — and no one will be able to protect you. The Federal Trade Commission has no legal authority to oversee ISP practices, and the bill under consideration ensures that the FCC cannot adopt “substantially similar” rules. So unless the bill fails in the House, the nation’s strongest privacy protections will not only be eliminated, they cannot be revived by the FCC.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Although my browsing history is pretty "vanilla", I am astounded at the arrogance of this government and major corporations, who believe I do not have the right to privacy, as afforded me by the 4th Amendment to the Constitution.

And at this point in my political understanding of how this country works, I fully understand that am no longer represented by my alleged "Congressional Representatives"; they are, generally simply professional whores, available for sale to the highest corporate bidders.

The one local exception to this is Hawaiian Congressional Representative Tulsi Gabbard, for whom I have the highest regard and respect.

Violence and Utopia- Realism and Idealism in the age of Gun Control

The antipathy towards gun owners is not based upon stopping violence, but upon reducing the discomfort felt by idealists. For the idealist, letting society take the burden removes both the duty and the emotional cost of facing an imperfect world. For the idealist, protecting the fantasy narrative is more important than respecting the facts.

New Law Means You Could be the Subject of a Vaccine or Medication Experiment Without Your Informed Consent

A new law quietly passed last December contains a waiver of informed consent that eliminates the requirement of pharmaceutical companies to let you know if a medication or vaccine given to you or your child is experimental.

Wow. One last Christmas surprise from President Obama.

ORWELL ROLLS IN GRAVE AS POLICE ROLL OUT UNPRECEDENTED DRONE AIR FORCE TO “TRACK ANTI-SOCIAL BEHAVIOUR”

The Devon and Cornwall police force, tasked with the patrol of the largest geographical area in England, are pioneering perpetual drone surveillance by establishing an unprecedented 24-hour drone surveillance of its patrol area set to begin this summer.

The police drones, also identified as “unmanned aerial systems,” have undergone smaller tests last year. Multiple reports state that the drones will mostly be used for locating crime suspects and missing persons as well as surveillance of crime scenes.

Drones indeed have a unique ability to scope areas that officers cannot approach on foot. A report published by the Cato Institute acknowledged that drones “allow police to investigate dangerous situations such as bomb threats and toxic spills.” These devices can seen as an advantage for civilians in peril, but they also serve as a troubling mechanism of undermining the personal privacy of a large population.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hmmmm.... that phrase "anti-social behaviour" can be translated in an incredible number of ways.

I am a Christian witness, and a Christian pacifist activist, who never advocates violence, but constantly exhorts her government to resolve its geopolitical problems through ethical, hard-won negotiations, rather than through war.

To the warmongers and presstitutes who constitute the American deep state, do these attitudes and actions make me "guilty" of alleged anti-social behaviour?!?

Unfortunately, at this time in the American republic's history, the short answer is, yes.

Take a good hard look at the NDAA, the National Defense Authorization Act.

NDAA

Under this law, I can be jailed, indefinitely, with no due process whatsoever for simply thinking about geopolitical issues differently than does my government, and posting it on Mike's blog, even though I never, ever advocate violence as an answer to anything.

EU SET TO TOUGHEN UP CAPITAL CONTROLS IN GREECE, AS THINGS GO FROM BAD TO CATASTROPHIC IN EU MEMBER STATE

It is not common knowledge (as the EU tries to suppress news that sheds light on the misery of being an EU member state), but Greek citizens have been living with capital controls since 2015.

What does this mean? Simply put it means that Greek people, EU citizens, cannot withdraw more than a designated amount of cash from their own bank accounts.

In the case of Greece, you can only withdraw €840 every two weeks from a bank ATM or in person at a bank teller. If you wish to withdraw more than the designated €840, then you need special permission to access your money held at the bank of your choice.

It was supposed to be a temporary safeguard to avoid capital flight amidst a pathetic Tsipras driven EU revolt, but the capital controls remain to this day and now news is trickling in that the controls will not only last longer, but may even toughen up.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I, personally, am waiting for the intelligent political leaders to pull an "Iceland", declare the country's debt "odious", and put the banksters and politicians into hard jail time for the misery and pain they have collectively inflicted on the Greek people.

Secret text message ordered the 'lone wolf' to carry out London terror attack

ISIS fanatics used the secretive messaging site Telegram to call for a “lone wolf” attack on Parliament just weeks before Khalid Masood struck.

A Sunday Mirror probe has uncovered chilling messages in which jihadi masterminds urged terrorists to mount atrocities in the UK.

They shared an image of an IS fighter dressed like executioner Jihadi John, wielding a sword in front of Big Ben.

The illustration – headlined Fight Them – showed a fireball and a tattered Union Flag flying from a pole.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Nobody sends messages like that unless they WANT them to be found.

TOP BRITISH UNIVERSITIES FOUND PRODUCING ‘FAKE RESEARCH’

Hundreds of allegations of “fake research” conducted at some of the UK’s top universities were reported between 2011 and 2016, figures show.

According to figures released by 23 of Britain’s 24 Russell Group universities following Freedom of Information (FoI) requests submitted by the BBC, the scale of fraudulent research is much higher than official Research Councils UK (RCUK) statistics suggest.

The figures reveal at least 300 allegations including plagiarism and fabrication.

Official data, however, suggests about 30 cases were reported between 2012 and 2015.

In response, the House of Commons Science and Technology Committee has launched an inquiry to reassure the public that its monitoring system is “robust.”

Committee Chairman Stephen Metcalfe stressed the importance of reassuring people that public funds are being invested in accurate and trustworthy research.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Mistrust" and a healthy skepticism are very necessary intellectual qualities to have in this part of the 21st century.

ISIS use the Westminster terror attack to recruit extremists with new wave of YouTube videos glorifying the massacre

Islamic State is using the Westminster terror attack to help recruit terrorists in a wave of YouTube videos glorifying the massacre.

Khalid Masood, who killed four people on Wednesday in a rampage in London, is being hailed a hero by twisted extremists in videos that Google has failed to block.

Several videos are still live, including one entitled 'Westminster attack documentary (must watch)' posted by a user called Luke Taylor, in which radicalised Muslims preach at the camera in a 10-minute clip which features a prisoner being burned to death.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We keep hearing how YouTube is taking down videos, yet for some reason, the terrorist videos are left alone!

US admits killing 200 civilians in Mosul air strike while world focuses on London terror attack

Amid the aftermath of a terrorist attack on the UK’s Parliament, which killed four people including a police officer, another mass casualty further afield has been buried in the headlines.

Over the weekend the US Pentagon has admitted to another air strike in Mosul, which is believed to have killed more than 200 civilians including women and children.

It has been described as a “humanitarian disaster” by Iraqi Vice President Osama Nujaifi, and United Nations officials said they were “profoundly concerned” by the attack.

Isis' losses in Syria and Iraq will make it harder for it to recruit
The Pentagon released a statement, saying it had targeted Isis fighters and equipment “at the location corresponding to allegations of civilian casualties”.

“The coalition respects human life, which is why we are assisting our Iraqi partner forces in their effort to liberate their lands from ISIS brutality.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"...respects human life...", MY ASTROLABE!!

The stark, and unassailable reality here, is that the US military will kill ANYONE who, even accidentally, gets in the way of Iraq continuing to be led by a western-centric government, and with all the oil being sold only in US dollars.

And let us not forget that other inconvenient truth about war in the region:

The US Government created Al Qaeda and the ISIS terror group

60 Minutes investigates first ISIS-claimed attack in U.S. and what the FBI knew

A terrorist attack in Texas by two U.S. citizens shows how hard it is to prevent such an attack -- even when one of the terrorists is well-known to the FBI

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Which means the FBI wanted the attack to happen; to scare Americans into supporting the "War on Terror" (Wars of conquest).

Remember when the FBI let the 1993 bombing of the WTC go ahead?

Fake News: The Unravelling of US Empire From Within

US bully pulpits are now beyond show disagreements and successful media inquisitions of the past. Slanderous accusations long confined to vilifying the designated Enemy have crept into accusations of the President himself. ‘The Russians are coming’ is returning as the final recourse of smear to stop deviations from the global program of hugely profitable enemy hate and perpetual preparations for foreign war.

The ruling big lies of the US money party and corporate globalization have divided into opposing camps. The Press and the President denounce each other non-stop on the public stage, while US dark state agents take sides behind the scenes.

Fake news is the medium of battle.

Russophobia – Symptom of US Implosion

There was a time when Russophobia served as an effective form of population control – used by the American ruling class, in particular, to command the general US population into patriotic loyalty. Not any longer. Now, Russophobia is a sign of weakness, of desperate implosion among the US ruling class from their own rotten, internal decay.

Daesh, Creature of the West

According to Saudi intelligence, Daesh was invented by the US government – in Camp Bacca, near the Kuwait border, as many will remember — to essentially finish off the Shiite-majority Nouri al-Maliki government in Baghdad.

It didn’t happen this way, of course. Then, years later, in the summer of 2014, Daesh routed the Iraqi Army on its way to conquer Mosul. The Iraqi Army fled. Daesh operatives then annexed ultra-modern weapons that took US instructors from six to twelve months to train the Iraqis in and…surprise! Daesh incorporated the weapons in their arsenals in 24 hours.

In the end, Shea frankly admitted to the source that Gen David Petraeus, conductor of the much-lauded 2007 surge, had trained these Sunnis now part of Daesh in Anbar province in Iraq.

Since the moment President Trump released his now infamous Tweet accusing Obama of wiretapping him, the establishment media has done everything in their power to continually attack the White House while claiming that there is absolutely no evidence of any surveillance.
