Trump-Supporting Veteran Violently Attacked By LA Mob

A viral video from Thursday night shows a violent mob attacking a Marine veteran who was wearing a Trump shirt near President Trump's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The video begins with an enraged man shouting at Los Angeles-based journalist Elijah Schaffer, who showed up with singer Joy Villa and the veteran, wearing pro-Trump attire. The man, shouting at Schaffer, repeats the phrase "I can say nigger if I want to," before Schaffer tells the man to "get out of my face."

Then, a scuffle breaks out between an Asian man and an individual referred to as a Marine veteran, reports Infowars' Paul Joseph Watson.

The anti-Trump agitator throws the first punch at the veteran and then the man involved in the first confrontation physically assaults the veteran and Schaffer.

Other anti-Trump agitators join in the fight before one of them launches a kick at a man filming the scenes on a large camera.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are moments when I miss our former home in Greater LA; but hearing about this incident makes me very grateful that we no longer live there.

Physical violence, as a way of expressing one's political opinions, has become a critical tool of the left's articulation of its positions.

But not having a rule of law to thwart such behaviour is mobbocracy; and mobbocracy was the absolute polar opposite of what the framers of the Declaration and Bill of Rights had in mind when they created this country.

"This Will Make The French Revolution Look Like A Simple Colonic"

Round The Bend

The political insanity roiling the USA only gets worse, with no end in sight. On Wednesday, Senator Ed Markey (D-Mass), made the astonishing statement on CNN that “the American people wanted a confrontation, not a conversation,” between Presidents Trump and Putin in Helsinki.

Really? We wanted a mud wrestling bout and all we got was some lousy chit-chat? Next time, maybe Mr. Trump will bring a fungo bat to the room and “tune up” his counterpart - a popular negotiating technique from the rough-and-tumble New York City construction scene back in Mr. Trump’s halcyon days. Some people you just can’t reason with, especially the hell-spawned man-beast who personally directed Russian “meddling” and “interference” in our election and stole certain victory from president-designee Hillary. (I know this because The New York Times and The Washington Post said so.)

US Wheat Exports Losing Ground To Russia As Mexico Seeks 'Alternatives'

Russia briefly surpassed the United States as the top global wheat supplier in 2016, and the two top global suppliers have been neck and neck since, but recently the US market share has been on a dramatic decline due to Mexico increasingly turning to alternative suppliers like Russia amidst escalating trade tensions with its northern neighbor. This despite soaring Russian prices and a new setback to the Russian crop from drought.

The US has been Mexico's primary supplier since the 1994 North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) took effect, but American suppliers are alarmed as Mexican millers begin looking elsewhere with the threat of tariffs looming, a trend since Donald Trump famously labelled NAFTA "the worst trade deal ever" signed by the US, followed by his April 2017 threat to pull out and has since called to renegotiate.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. President, this is double-plus ungood for American farmers who do not want charity, but want to be able to sell their product at reasonable prices.

Israeli police raid al-Aqsa mosque after clashes; two dead in Gaza

Israeli troopers entered Jerusalem's al-Aqsa mosque, the third-holiest shrine in Islam, and carried out arrests on Friday in what police described as a pursuit of youths who had lobbed rocks and fireworks during clashes with its forces outside.

The rare raid, on a site that is an emblem of Palestinians' statehood hopes and a frequent catalyst of their conflict with Israel, came as medics in Gaza said Israeli army gunfire killed two people - including a boy - during a weekly border protest.

A police spokesman said the troopers were sent into al-Aqsa after suspects who had barricaded themselves in after running confrontations in the surrounding compound, during which masked men launched firecrackers from handheld canisters.

There was no immediate word of any violence in the mosque, whose older male worshippers said they had been allowed to exit after being searched. Witnesses later saw around 20 younger men detained by police, and said mosque prayers later resumed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I seriously hope Abbas is completely wrong about that last statement; this is the last thing the Middle East needs right now.

Palestinian Truth-Telling Criminalized by Israel

Palestinian journalists daring to expose Israeli high crimes face extrajudicial arrest and imprisonment on the phony pretext of threatening national security.

Israeli violations against Palestinian media freedom are rampant. According to the Palestinian Center for Development and Media Freedoms (MADA), violations occur regularly, 62 reported in June alone – including by PA authorities acting as Israel’s enforcer.

Earlier in July, Israel shut down Al-Quds TV, banning its operations, prohibiting journalists from working with it on the phony pretext of inciting terrorism – code language for truth-telling the Netanyahu regime wants suppressed.

MADA denounced what’s going on, saying the latest “assault comes within a systematic and aggravated Israeli policy to suppress media freedoms and silencing journalism in Palestine by all forms of assaults, particularly, shutting down media institutions.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Think a moment; if everything the Israeli government and military are doing against the Palestinians is absolutely honorable and moral, why are they suppressing the reporting of it?!?

Teenaged girl shot by Israeli soldiers to walk again

A Palestinian teenage girl, who was shot by Israeli soldiers during anti-occupation rallies on Gaza Strip, will be able to walk again, her doctor said.

Meryem Abu-Matar, 16, who lives in Gaza’s Rafah city, was brought to Istanbul for medical treatment.

Since March, Abu-Matar has been through 42 phases of surgery, the Humanitarian Relief Foundation (IHH) said on Thursday.

The girl can now walk with the support of a walker.

She will soon be able to move without any support, said Dr. Mehmet Veli Karaaltin, her surgeon, who identified her wound as "severe".

He added that the treatment will last a year.

Speaking to Anadolu Agency, Abu Matar said: “I was targeted because I carry a Palestinian flag. I will continue my struggle."

“My message to the world is that the Palestinian people are unfairly under blockade. We will continue this struggle until we are free," she added.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let me get my head around this: this 16 year old young woman was shot, not because she attempted to hurt any IDF member, but because she was carrying a Palestinian flag?!?

I have, BTW, just fired off an email to the charity helping this young woman, asking if Americans can, without legal repercussions against them, contribute to this charity. If so, I will create a link at WRH to their organisation. Their website can be found here:

Billionaire Bronfman Arrested For Funding NXIVM Sex Cult

Many alternative media sources are reporting that in the criminal indictment against Raniere and Mack one of the pending counts is sex trafficking of children. The example below is the alleged copy of the indictment.

But the actual indictment does not specify child trafficking, and with some quick research, first looking at the counts they are charged with and then searching the United States legal codes, it would appear that child trafficking is not specified as a primary count against the defendants. Bronfman has not been charged with any counts of human trafficking.

Yes, the indictment does specify sex trafficking of children, as covered in Title 18, Section 1591, which is clearly listed on the indictment.

Trump team preparing economic plan as part of Mideast peace proposal - official

A long-awaited Middle East peace plan from the Trump administration will include what the White House is calling a robust economic plan to help resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, an official has said.

U.S. President Donald Trump’s envoys are also working on the most detailed set of proposals to date for the overall plan, the White House official said in a briefing with reporters on Monday.

The plan thus far has no release date. Trump had hoped to reveal it early this year but his decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and moving the embassy there, reversing decades of U.S. policy, inflamed tensions in the region.

The Palestinians have said that they have lost faith in the Trump administration to act as a fair mediator and have boycotted the process since last December’s Jerusalem announcement.

The White House has offered few details on a peace plan that has drawn widespread scepticism even before its unveiling.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump, a word, please: you and your Envoy, Jared Kushner, keep deliberately, and horrifically akwardly, missing the point here.

For the Palestinians, a peace deal with Israel is NOT about economic development; had it been just that, this would have resolved itself long ago.

The issue, gentlemen, is a viable homeland for the Palestinian people, and a recognised state, living in harmony, and trading with Israel.

This is what I am betting your "proposal' is missing in its entirety.

And until, and unless, this is resolved to the point where the Palestinian have a legitimate, recognized homeland, Gaza, East Jerusalem, and the West Bank will continue to be embroiled in low-intensity, high Palestinian casualty combat against Israel, with Israel continuing to fight stones... with sharpshooters' bullets.

Yemen 'on brink of new cholera epidemic', charity warns

Thousands of people in Yemen could be affected by a new wave of deadly cholera in the coming weeks, an international charity says.

In a press release on Thursday, UK-based Save the Children warned the hot summer months are ideal conditions for cholera to spread rapidly.

It added that almost 3,000 suspected cholera cases were reported in the first week of July across the country - the highest number since the start of the year.

"Cholera could spread like wildfire in Yemen, potentially infecting thousands of children and completely overwhelming an already-crippled health system," the charity's CEO Helle Thorning-Schmidt said.

"Many hospitals have been reduced to rubble, and those that are still standing are barely functioning. Doctors have not been paid, pharmacies are understocked, and power cuts happen constantly."

More than one million people were infected with cholera last year.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

But you have to understand; this is the precise outcome the Butcher of Yemen (A.K.A. Saudi Arabia's Prince Ben Salman) wants to see happen here.

More illness, more starvation, more polluted water, means more deaths, without having to use more American bombs and bullets; that's the math, people!!

And has the cholera infecting and killing Yemenis been weaponised here by the US and Saudis?!?

I can tell you that it has in the past, and that may be what is going on now. Here is an article from 2017, which may shed some light on the history of its use as a weapon.

US and Saudi Arabia using cholera to kill Yemenis

The article goes on to state:

"According to the Library of Congress, Science Reference Services, chemical/biological warfare is the term used to describe the use of chemical or biological agents as weapons to injure or kill humans, livestock, or plants. Chemical weapons are devices that use chemicals to inflict death or injury; biological weapons use pathogens or organisms that cause disease. Pathogens include bacteria, viruses, fungi, and toxins (poisons produced by animals or plants).

William M. Boardman via Readers support news reports:

Since March 2015, the US has supported Saudi Arabia and its allies in their criminal war of aggression against Yemen, committing daily war crimes, especially against civilians, who are now suffering a cholera epidemic with more than 400,000 victims. Cholera is caused by the bacteria Vibrio cholera and has been weaponized by the US, Japan (in World War II), South Africa (under apartheid), Iraq (under Saddam), and other states. To be most effective, cholera must be spread through water supplies. That’s what’s happening in Yemen now. More than two years of bombing has largely destroyed Yemen’s infrastructure, water and sewage systems are destroyed, hospitals and clinics are destroyed, and the population of about 25 million has almost no protection against the spread of cholera. The UN says Yemen’s cholera epidemic is “the largest ever recorded in any country in a single year since records began.”

When any country succeeds in weaponizing an illness, and uses it successfully as the US did with cholera, please understand, and with an absolute, and dreadful certainty, that they will use it again.

And the question you have to ask, going back to an earlier post I created this morning, is why, if this is the worst humanitarian crisis the world is facing right now, are you not being told about it by the presstitutes and warmongers at FOX; CBS; ABC: MSNBC?!?

It is very simple; you are not supposed to know about it, because the military industrial complex, now making billions from its sales of weapons to Saudi Arabia, and the US Deep State don't want you to know, because you might somehow think that this genocide against the Yemeni people, is at all on the right side of history.

Assange’s Freedom, Democracy’s Last Line of Defense

Over 50 years ago, in his letter from the Birmingham Jail, addressing a struggle of the civil right era, Martin Luther King Jr. wrote, "We will have to repent in this generation not merely for the hateful words and actions of the bad people but for the appalling silence of the good people." His message is now more prevalent than ever in the current political climate surrounding WikiLeaks and its founder Julian Assange.

WikiLeaks stepped onto a global stage with release of a huge trove of classified documents, revealing crimes and corruption of governments. After the publication of war logs that exposed the atrocities committed by U.S. forces in Iraq and Afghanistan, the reaction of the Pentagon quickly escalated into a war against the First Amendment. WikiLeaks was subjected to unlawful financial blockades and there has been an ongoing secret grand jury against the organization and its associates since 2010.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. Assange is not my enemy, nor the enemy to the people of this country; he is someone who brought the dark machinations of the US's and other countries' Deep States into the Light, where they could be seen for what they were.

And for this, he will probably spend the rest of his life in jail, if he is not assassinated first, in some way that makes it look like an "accident".

When the telling of the honest truth becomes transmogrified into treason or espionage, the society in which that has happened, has become a full-tilt, dictatorship, on steroids.

George Orwell's novel, "1984", was a cautionary tale; not a how-to manual!!

I would hope that those in the bowels of power in this country, in whose hands now lie the fate of Julian Assange, remember this.

Watchdog: US Wasted More Than $15.5 Billion in Afghanistan

Responding to requests from members of Congress, the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) has made his first attempt to calculate exactly how much money the US wasted in Afghanistan.

After 10 months of research, SIGAR said they could document $15.5 billion in waste since SIGAR’s inception in 2008. This is 29 percent of all of the spending audited by the SIGAR, who concedes the figure is probably low.

Current SIGAR John Sopko says that the figure is “likely only a portion of the total waste, fraud, abuse, and failed efforts.” He warned that the $4 billion in stabilization programs only “enabled corruption and bolstered support for insurgents.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable, but perfectly predictable from this government.

Senators Threaten Action If Europe Ignores US Sanctions Against Iran

A group of 10 Republicans senators have issued a joint letter to the ambassadors from Britain, France and Germany saying they are “troubled” by European efforts to evade newly imposed US sanctions against Iran.

President Trump withdrew the US out of the P5+1 nuclear deal, of which all three of those European nations are still party to. The US thus considers the deal over, and wants all the pre-deal sanctions back in place. The European nations, and the EU in general, are trying to save the deal, irrespective of US opposition.

The letter demands that the European nations “comply with all American sanctions,” and warns that continued attempts to avoid doing so could be met by “congressional action” against the Europeans for resisting them.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump, and these 10 Republican Senators (all high recipients of AIPAC money, I might imagine), a word, please, gentlemen; what are you going to do to every nation which refuses to go along with these sanctions?!?

This giving the world a "drop dead date" (4 November of this year, I believe) by which the world was commanded by the US to NOT buy Iranian crude oil, was utterly not thought through.

And I would imagine that some countries are going to come up with very creative ways to not allow US sanctions to impinge their buying of Iranian oil (cryptocurrencies, perhaps, that the US would not be able to touch.)

Then what, gentlemen?!? Go to war with Iran, and the rest of the world which needs to buy their oil?!?

And please, in all this rush to demonize Iran (potentially ahead of a military strike against it), I hope someone in the bowels of power is asking themselves this question; what will Russia do, in the case of a US/Israeli attack against Iran?!?

Will the Duma and Putin just sit on their hands, singing "Kumbyah"?!?

I would strongly tend to doubt this.

Also, what will Turkey do, which actually shares a common border with Iran, and the government of which has stated that it will absolutely not observe the US boycott on Iranian oil?!?

I sincerely hope that someone in DC is losing sleep over this. It was NOT a tactic calculated to bring the Iranians to the negotiating table, after President Trump withdrew the US from the P5+1 agreement, which the IAEA, comprised of very bright people, said was working.

US Resisting Pushes by North, South Korea to End War

65 years after the 1953 armistice that stopped the open fighting of the Korean War, the nations involved still haven’t replaced it with a permanent peace treaty. This means that the Korean War is still technically ongoing, 68 years later. That’s apparently where the US intends for it to stay.

While North and South Korea have discussed deals to end the war, and the US nominally has given its imprimatur to the idea, US officials say that there is little interest in the Trump Administration to actually do this, with some seeing it as undermining their leverage against North Korea on denuclearization.

This would be a complicated matter this time, unlike the decades of previous US resistance to making peace with North Korea. That’s because now, South Korea is also on board for such a deal. In trying to delay such an important milestone, the US may be seen as obstructing diplomacy in general.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is where the current administration's logic breaks down completely; why would Kim Jung Un completely denuclearize, until he gets some concrete assurances regarding aid, trade, and an end to the armistice, which is simply, technically, a cessation of fighting, rather than a true, thoroughly spelled out peace deal?!?

WATCH: COP BEATS, TASERS, CHOKES, HANDCUFFED COMPLIANT MAN AS FELLOW COPS DO NOTHING

A Meridian police officer has been fired after he was accused of using excessive force against a handcuffed man in the parking lot of a Walmart. This week, Police Chief Benny Dubose released the dash cam footage of the incident in the name of transparency.

The dash cam was released by the department to show why they fired officer Daniel Starks this week. The disturbing video shows the danger people are put in when dealing with police officers who lose their temper and become violent.

The incident began as police were responding to a call of a suspected shoplifter at Walmart. As the officer pulled the suspect over as he pulled out of the Walmart, the man complied without incident.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Attorney General Jeff Sessions, white courtesy telephone, please!

Sir, as long as documented episodes of battering cuffed suspects (sometimes to death) continue to emerge from police dashcams, you cannot possibly stand there, with a straight face, at police officer gathers, with a straight face, and talk about a "war on cops", when the absolute converse, a war on American citizens, is precisely what is going on here.

PUTIN: THE US IS MAKING A BIG MISTAKE BY WEAPONIZING THE DOLLAR

After the liquidation of its US Treasury holdings, surging gold reserves, and switching to a non-SWIFT payment system, Russian President Putin attempted to quell general concerns noting that “Russia isn’t abandoning the dollar."

In a press conference this morning, the Russian president said his country doesn’t plan to abandon holding reserves in U.S. dollars though he said that the risk of sanctions is prompting Russia to diversify its foreign currency assets.

“Russia isn’t abandoning the dollar,” Putin said in answer to a question about the sharp decline in its holdings of U.S. Treasuries in April and May.

“We need to minimize risks, we see what’s happening with sanctions.”

”As for our American partners and the restrictions they impose involving the dollar,” he added,

“I think that is a major strategic mistake because they’re undermining confidence in the dollar as a reserve currency.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US and the EU continue punishing Russia for things it absolutely did not do, such as the "alleged" annexation of Crimea, which never happened; can you blame the guy for getting rid of American Treasury holdings right now, and looking for an alternative to the US dollar as a reserve currency?!?

I certainly cannot.

THE PENTAGON, THE CIA, AND THE NSA ARE IN CHARGE

The U.S. mainstream press can easily recognize the dominant and influential role that the military plays in society, so long as they are referring to countries like Pakistan and Egypt. Unfortunately, the same reporters and commentators turn a blind eye to the similar phenomenon here in the United States.

For example, the Washington Post writes: “When not in power, [Pakistan’s generals] have exerted outsize control over foreign policy, the economy, and local politics.” The New York Timeswrites: “Even during civilian rule, the country’s generals have wielded enormous power, setting the agenda for the country’s foreign and security policies…. As prime minister, Mr. Sharif ran afoul of the military early on by trying to assert control over foreign and defense policy, which is seen as the army’s domain.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have found, in recent years, that it is very helpful to read both US independent media the foreign press in English, to even begin to get a small clue as to what the US government, and its security apparatus, is doing, and potentially why.

Don't listen to what is coming out of the box with the talking presstitutes and warmongers, feeding you lies; they are only telling you what the government has told them to tell you, to avoid looking at what is really going on, or why. This "engineered news" has been created to "sell" you an agenda, which forwards the government's actions or positions on certain issues, and avoid others.

And if you don't believe me, please ask yourself; why has there been utterly nothing stated by the presstitutes and warmongers about the US-enabled Saudi war crimes in Yemen?!?

This is what is being done to innocent Yemeni children, non-combatants, and the medically fragile elderly backed by your tax dollars, and in your name, people. (warning: horrifically graphic images)

These are war crimes, pure and simple, and there is no excuse for them.

And for those of you who are as troubled as I am, here is a list of your Congressional and Senatorial representives:

List Congressional and Senatorial Representatives

Kindly feel free to locate your Congressmen and Senator, and ask them, very politely, just what is going with Yemen, and when will US support for Prince Bin Salman's genocide against the Yemeni people end.

Let them know; YOU know what is happening here. And if they tell you that the most current defense budget addresses this,

Congress aims to stop arming terrorists, limit Yemen war involvement in Funding Bill
ask them, please, what effects this will practically have on the ground, particularly in light of President Trump's reworking of the Conventional Arms Transfer Treaty?

Experts fear US arms sales to human rights abusers will become easier thanks to a 'loophole' in Trump's new policy

Let them know, peacefully, quietly, and non-threateningly, that YOU know. And you don't want the US-enabling of Saudi war crimes in Yemen to continue, and if they choose to do nothing about it, they will lose their seats in the mid-terms, or whenever they next come up for re-election.

Feel free to forward this link, and these articles.

US Will ‘Have a Hard Time’ Prying Crimea Back From Russia

Ahead of the hearing, Pompeo issued a statement declaring that the United States will never recognize Crimea as a part of Russia, in an apparent effort to preemptively rebut senators' claims to the effect that US President Donald Trump is soft on Russia.

?"In concert with allies, partners and the international community, the United States rejects Russia's attempted annexation of Crimea and pledges to maintain this policy until Ukraine's territorial integrity is restored," the statement said.

"I think that the Crimea declaration is expected, but it's gonna go nowhere. The US is going to have a very hard time prying Crimea back from Russian hands," Lazare told Loud & Clear hosts John Kiriakou and Brian Becker.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Okay, one more time...

Following the US-backed coup that ousted democratically elected Yanucovich and replaced him with Poroshenko, the people of Crimea held a referendum to secede from Ukraine, which passed overwhelmingly.

Then the people of Crimea held a second referendum to merge with the Russian Republics, which also passed overwhelmingly.

The US refuses to recognize the Crimean people's right to such referendums even though they are guaranteed that right under the United Nations' Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which the US, as a member of the UN, is obligated to recognize.

Russiagate is a ghost story for liberals

Russiagate is a ghost story (involving spooks) for liberals. It follows nearly two decades of ghost stories told by liberals which they don’t try to debunk because they want the mood created by these stories. I am not claiming that Russiagate is false— I am guessing it is a mixture of truth and falsehood and hype. But it is part of a genre and is intended to set a mood and you aren’t supposed to spoil the fun. So pretend you are outside on a warm summer evening, ready for some political supernatural horror. Boo.

11 Million Reasons for Wall Street & London to Hate Russia

Why does the US media have an anti-Russian fixation? It’s not what the American people want to hear. 71% of the Ronald Reagan-loving, military-obsessed Republican Party approve of Trump meeting with Putin. On the other side, top liberal CNN commentator and former President Obama’s adviser, Van Jones has admitted in a video recording that the “Russiagate” story is a “big nothing burger” which Democrats are not interested in. The Russia-fixated, Hillary Clinton-DNC liberal establishment now faces an upsurge of opposition from Democratic Socialists like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders, who emphasize the need for populist economics reforms.

Conservatives don’t want to hear it. Liberals don’t want to hear it. Hating Russia is just not a bandwagon the U.S. public is ready to jump on. Yet, if one turns on American television, in the aftermath of the summit in Helsinki, the rhetoric and accusations against the government of the Russian Federation are almost endless.

Flashback: Prince Andrew asked to respond under oath about claims of sex with 17-year-old girl

The court bundle also contains a sworn affidavit from Roberts, providing new details about the sexual encounters she alleges she had with Andrew on three separate occasions beginning when she was 17 and working for Jeffrey Epstein, a former hedge fund boss since convicted for soliciting sex with a minor.

Roberts alleges she was paid $15,000 by Epstein after she claims she first slept with Andrew partly “to keep my mouth shut about ‘working’ with the Prince”. She also claims she was involved in an “orgy” in the US Virgin Islands with the duke, Epstein, and eight other girls, who she said all appeared to be under 18.

“I had sex with him three times, including one orgy,” Roberts claims in her affidavit. “I knew he was a member of the British royal family, but I just called him “Andy”.” Roberts also claimed that Epstein required her to recount personal details about her alleged sexual encounter with Andrew, adding: “Epstein appeared to be collecting private information about Andy.”

Flashback: Judge orders Prince Andrew sex allegations struck from court record

Allegations that a 17-year-old was forced to have sex with Britain’s Prince Andrew, which prompted a crisis at Buckingham Palace earlier this year, have been removed from a federal court case by a judge in the US.

Judge Kenneth Marra ordered Virginia Roberts’s accusations about Andrew, the Duke of York, to be struck from the record and denied her attempt to join a lawsuit against Jeffrey Epstein, a friend of the prince and a convicted sex offender.

“At this juncture in the proceedings, these lurid details are unnecessary,” Marra wrote in his order, issued at the US district court in southern Florida on Tuesday morning. “These unnecessary details shall be stricken.”

The CIA/FBI/DOJ Plot To Overthrow The President of the United States (Paul Craig Roberts)

Trump vs. The Fed: America Sacrificed At The NWO Altar: by Brandon Smith

I do not know if the globalist script calls for Trump to go as far as shutting down the Fed completely, but rest assured if he does there will be hundreds of alternative analysts decreeing that it is irrefutable proof that Trump is not controlled opposition and he “must have a plan.” The actual plan will be the end of the dollar as the world reserve currency to make way for the global economic reset and a NWO currency framework, all in the name of stopping a catastrophe initiated by “evil conservative populists.”

U.S. SECRET WARS IN AFRICA RAGE ON, DESPITE TALK OF DOWNSIZING

Last October, four U.S. soldiers – including two commandos – were killed in an ambush in Niger. Since then, talk of U.S. special operations in Africa has centered on missions being curtailed and troop levels cut.

Press accounts have suggested that the number of special operators on the front lines has been reduced, with the head of U.S. Special Operations forces in Africa directing his troops to take fewer risks. At the same time, a “sweeping Pentagon review” of special ops missions on the continent may result in drastic cuts in the number of commandos operating there. U.S. Africa Command has apparently been asked to consider the impact on counterterrorism operations of cutting the number of Green Berets, Navy SEALs, and other commandos by 25 percent over 18 months and 50 percent over three years.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The reason the US military is in Africa, is very fundamental; it involves the expropriation of natural resources, to which the US government has absolutely no moral right; the "pacification" of these countries' governments and people, and insuring that those resources are only purchased in US dollars.

I frankly don't think that is going to go away any time soon.

WHEN LONG-BREWING INSTABILITY FINALLY REACHES CRISIS

If we want to trace back the systemic instabilities and imbalances that culminated in China's revolution in 1949, we can start in 1900 with the Boxer Rebellion, which was itself a reaction to the Opium Wars of the 1840s that established Western influence and control in China.

But is this far enough back in time to understand the Communist Revolution in the 1940s? If we want a comprehensive understanding, we must go back to 1644 and the demise of the Ming Empire, and perhaps even farther back to the Mongol victory over the Song dynasties in the late 1200s.

THE GRAY LADY THINKS TWICE ABOUT ASSANGE’S PROSECUTION

Though The New York Times itself has not reported it, it’s No. 2 lawyer told a group of judges that the prosecution of Julian Assange could have dire consequences for the Times itself, explains Ray McGovern.

Well, lordy be. A lawyer for The New York Times has figured out that prosecuting WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange might gore the ox of The Gray Lady herself.

The Times’s deputy general counsel, David McCraw, told a group of judges on the West Coast on Tuesday that such prosecution would be a gut punch to free speech, according to Maria Dinzeo,writing for the Courthouse News Service.

Curiously, as of this writing, McCraw’s words have found no mention in the Times itself. In recent years, the newspaper has shown a marked proclivity to avoid printing anything that might risk its front row seat at the government trough.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I hope that Assange will be wearing his Kevlar undies, when he is ultimately apprehended by US officials, and that his attornies will be an absolute "Free Speech Dream Team."

Young Female Wal-Mart Manager "TRIGGERED" And Flees To "Safe Space" After Customer Complains About Illegal Overcharge

This incident was so stupid, preposterous and insane that I wish this story was made up, but unfortunately, it is true. You see, this is the kind of mental and societal insanity that has infested the minds of many young people. It has surpassed the social-media and political realm and "snowflakes" across America are "triggered" by almost anything, even something as mundane and benign as a retail pricing /consumer issue. Thus, Wal-Mart "managers" who are "triggered" by their "feelings" are encouraged to "#walkaway" and seek their "safe space," perhaps in the ice cream or pillow isle. This is simply amazing stuff. I think I'll shop somewhere else.

US Government Seeks to Gag Lawyer for Russian National Mariia Butina

A trial date remains unset in the case of Russian national Mariia Butina, who was arrested on July 15 for acting as foreign agent of Russia but failing to register with US authorities, a claim Butina’s defense denies.

Her trial in the court of public opinion remains ongoing, however, and though a tidal wave of misleading and critical reporting on Butina has been published since her arrest, it was Butina's attorney the government sought to gag Wednesday.

Assistant US attorney Thomas Saunders refused to issue discovery to defense attorney Robert Driscoll until a protective order is secured on it, thereby gagging Driscoll on its subjects. Discovery is the process in criminal proceedings wherein the prosecution turns over its evidence to the defense. The government took objection to Driscoll's media appearances and argued that he could leak evidence to the media.

Former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett appeared on Wednesday’s show for another friendly conversation, where host Joy Behar lamented that Trump was going to destroy the world and it was imperative that Obama condemn him publicly.

Twitter Responds To Conservative Outrage As VICE Confirms "Shadow Ban" Reports

While last week's discussion focused on a site-wide "Quality Filter Discrimination" shadow ban, which prevents anyone not already following a user from viewing their posts, Vice notes that many conservative accounts aren't able to be found when typing names into the Twitter search engine.

The Republican Party’s chair Ronna McDaniel, several conservative Republican Congressmen, and Donald Trump Jr.’s spokesman no longer appear in the auto-populated drop-down search box on Twitter, VICE News has learned. It’s a shift that diminishes their reach on the platform — and the same one being deployed against prominent racists to limit their visibility. The profiles continue to appear when conducting a full search — but not in the more convenient and visible drop-down bar. (The accounts appear to also populate if you already follow the person.)

Vice found the same wasn't true for Democrats:

Defense lawyers say CIA Director Haspel tainted the 9/11 trial

Defense lawyers in the Sept. 11 trial have for years argued, mostly unsuccessfully, that a series of remarks by political leaders dating back to the Bush administration have contaminated the possibility of finding an impartial jury of U.S. military officers in the death-penalty case.

This week, lawyers for the accused lead 9/11 plotter Khalid Sheik Mohammed took aim at remarks the new CIA Director Gina Haspel made in her Senate confirmation hearings — and asked the trial judge to either dismiss the charges or remove the possibility of a death penalty because of alleged unlawful influence.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The only case they have against Khalid Sheik Mohammed is a confession extracted under torture.

Army Colonel Warns False Flag ‘Gulf of Tonkin Incident’ May Be Used to Get US Into War with Iran

On August 5, 1964, the New York Times reported “President Johnson has ordered retaliatory action against gunboats and ‘certain supporting facilities in North Vietnam’ after renewed attacks against American destroyers in the Gulf of Tonkin.” Additional outlets, such as the Washington Post, echoed this claim.

But it wasn’t true. At all. In fact, the Gulf of Tonkin incident, as it became known, turned out to be a fictitious creation courtesy of the government to escalate war in Vietnam — leading to the deaths of tens of thousands of U.S. troops and millions of Vietnamese, fomenting the largest anti-war movement in American history, and tarnishing the reputation of a nation once considered at least somewhat noble in the eyes of the world.

Wikipedia Puts Ron Paul, Rep. Steve King on List of ‘White Supremacists’

Wikipedia has placed Rep. Steve King (R-IA) and Ron Paul on their list of “American White Supremacists,” alongside cult leader Charles Manson, American Nazi Party founder George Lincoln Rockwell, convicted mass murderer Dylann Roof, and former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard Don Black.
King and Paul are currently on the list, which also includes also Paul Nehlen, Daily Stormer editor Andrew Anglin, and a neo-Nazi who changed his name to Heath Hitler.

King is also on a list of “American White Nationalists.”

Google uses Wikipedia as a definitive source of information, and lists information from the site at the top of nearly all search results.

'No evidence' to back IS claim for deadly Toronto attack: police

Canadian authorities said Wednesday they have no evidence to substantiate a claim by the Islamic State group that the gunman who killed two people in a Toronto rampage was an IS fighter.

The group's Amaq news agency said the gunman, identified by police as 29-year-old Faisal Hussain, was an IS "soldier" responding to its calls for attacks on nationals from countries fighting the group in Iraq and Syria.

"At this stage, we have no evidence to support these claims," Toronto police said in a statement.

PayPal censors journalists who criticize Israel

An operative of Israel’s global censorship campaign has admitted to exaggerating claims of anti-Semitism in order to engineer crackdowns on supporters of Palestinian rights.

In the latest instance, Benjamin Weinthal has apparently succeeded in persuading PayPal to close down the account of the French online publication Agence Media Palestine.

This constitutes censorship as it denies journalists the means to raise money for their work and retaliates against them for ideas they express.

Agence Media Palestine says it is considering legal action.

Weinthal presents his efforts as reportage for The Jerusalem Post on the actions of companies like PayPal, but what he really does is instigate crackdowns by feeding information – by his own admission distorted – about those he is targeting.

Israeli “self-defense” against Palestinians is logically impossible

News media outlets frequently present outbreaks of large-scale violence in Palestine-Israel in terms of “Israel’s right to defend itself.” This narrative says that whatever Israel may be guilty of, the state is justified in using military force to respond to Palestinian attacks.

But such media narratives about Israel’s “right to defend itself” mislead readers by ignoring the permanent violence of Israel’s colonization of Palestine and the aggressive pursuit of ethnic supremacy that this colonization entails.

The Israeli state was founded by massacring and ethnically cleansing Palestinians. Since Israel was created, it has repeatedly massacred Palestinians and Arabs in other countries, particularly Lebanon.

Painting a false picture

Shupak takes a novel approach. Rather than examine the bias in news accounts, he focuses on editorials in The New York Times with the aim of revealing the mainstream media’s underlying ideological support for a state closely aligned with US foreign policy objectives in the Middle East.

Shupak shows that framing narratives revealed in editorials rely on selecting only certain aspects of reality, which are then echoed in news accounts. Those selections reinforce already held beliefs and cultural assumptions.

Once this dominant narrative is established, no other aspects of reality are presented that might undermine the framing.

As Shupak puts it: “In the West, narratives about Palestine-Israel activate the ‘well-established knowledge structures’ that exist in a broader cultural context that is colonial, imperialist, Orientalist or some combination of these, wherein Israel is widely regarded as an outpost of Western civilization in a struggle with backward, savage Arabs.”

Former President Obama Knowingly Funded an Al-Qaeda Affiliate

A stunning new report released this week shows former President Barack Obama’s administration intentionally funded an Islamic terrorist-financing organization with hundreds of thousands of dollars. They did this, even though the group has been officially designated by the U.S. government as a funder of terrorist activities for more than 10 years.

Officials in the Obama administration approved the use of more than $100,000 to the Khartoum-based Islamic Relief Agency (ISRA), which was associated with Osama bin Laden and Maktab al-Khidamat, the group which eventually became the modern al-Qaeda.

2-minute video: corporate media parrots Orwell after Trump warns public to question corporate media! Documentation: published paper proves corporate media criminally complicit to ‘cover’ crimes of OBVIOUS ONGOING .01% lying, looting, illegal US empire

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

hat tip: PrisonPlanet, The Media Research Center

In two minutes, The Media Research Center reveals corporate media drumming repeated talking points that President Trump’s warning to question what corporate media reports as news is leading to 1984 propaganda. Following is a 98-second video I wrote about of corporate media warning of mind control and loss of democracy if you don’t believe corporate media:

A new poll from Monmouth University found 77% of Americans conclude corporate media gives fake news, with 49% assessing motive "to push an agenda."

Not Coming for Your Guns? Since Parkland Shooting, 26 States Have Passed 55 Gun Control Laws

As politicians and anti-gun rights activists continuously chant, “we don’t want to take your guns,” behind the scenes — in only the last five months — politicians have been working overtime to limit your right to bear arms. These laws are all a reaction to the tragic shooting in Parkland, Florida and, like most politicians always do, they are not letting this tragedy go to waste.

In One Year, MSNBC Covered 'Stormy Daniels' 455 Times, 'War In Yemen' 0

As FAIR has noted before (1/8/18, 3/20/18), to MSNBC, the carnage and destruction the US and its Gulf Monarchy allies are leveling against the poorest country in the Arab world is simply a non-issue.

On July 2, a year had passed since the cable network’s last segment mentioning US participation in the war on Yemen, which has killed in excess of 15,000 people and resulted in over a million cases of cholera. The US is backing a Saudi-led bombing campaign with intelligence, refueling, political cover, military hardware and, as of March, ground troops. None of this matters at all to what Adweek (4/3/18) calls “the network of the Resistance,” which has since its last mention of the US’s role in the destruction of Yemen found time to run over a dozen segments highlighting war crimes committed by the Syrian and Russian governments in Syria.

Infowars host Alex Jones moves to dismiss Sandy Hook lawsuit

Alex Jones argued he was acting as a journalist, comparing himself to the Washington Post reporters who uncovered the Watergate scandal, when he questioned the official narrative of the 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting on his talk show.

In written arguments filed Friday, the right-wing radio host moved to dismiss a defamation lawsuit filed by the families of some of the 26 people killed in the Connecticut shooting. Jones acknowledged that he had called the shooting a hoax, but said he now believes it happened.

"Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein relied on allegations from 'Deep Throat' to link the Nixon Administration to the Watergate break-in," his lawyers wrote in filing for a dismissal. "Such journalism, questioning official narratives, would be chilled if reporters were subject to liability if they turned out to be wrong,"

"Anthrax" Package Left For Maxine Waters, Office Evacuated

A suspicious package labeled "Anne Thrax" was left at the South Los Angeles office of Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) on Tuesday, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.

Portions of her two-story office building were evacuated as a hazmat crew investigated, and employees were allowed back inside after the package was reported safe. The LAPD Major Crimes Division has launched an investigation, according to spokesman Mike Lopez.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder: after the "flame-out" last week regarding the Oath-Keepers no show last Thursday, and her demonstrators burning an American flag; was this some kind of looney alt-right idea of a joke, or a pitiful bid for sympathy?!?

And then on Sunday, speaking at a Los Angeles Church, Congresswoman Waters declared that she was on a mission from God;
Maxine Waters was Sent By God

Unfortunately, apparently, to this particular church congregation, such a notion didn't sound the least... unhinged.

But she cannot outrun her moral responsibility for telling constituents and her Congressional buddies that they should "confront Trump Administration Officials".

Israel: A Lodestar State for the White Nationalist Movement

“I have great admiration for Israel’s nation-state Law. Jews are, once again, at the vanguard, rethinking politics and sovereignty for the future, showing a path forward for Europeans.” – Richard Spencer, poster boy for the ‘Alt-Right’ and White Nationalist Movement.

The aforementioned statement, sent out by Spencer as a tweet on July 21st, was made in response to the passage through the Israeli Knesset of the Basic Law on Israel as the Nation-State of the Jewish People. It was his acknowledgement of Israel’s formal declaration of itself to be a racialist, ethno-state.

It is important to clarify what the primary objective of Political Zionism was from the outset: This was to found a Jewish state centered in Palestine to the exclusion of all other races and religions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF this law becomes the clarion call for ultra-rightists and the white nationalist movement in the US, it looks as though Israel's "nation-State law" is already having some very serious unintended consequences.

Syria - For The Third Time Israel Falsely Claims Iran Pull-Back Deal With Russia

A typical Israeli propaganda scheme is to falsely claim that an agreement with some entity has been made and to then push that entity to stick to a "deal" it never agreed to. Israel dislikes any 'Iranian presence' in Syria. It tries to press on Russia to push Iran out of Syria by claiming that Russia offered or made such a deal.

Last fall a campaign in Israeli media claimed that Russia had agreed to push Iran away from the border with Israel. Russia denied that anything like that happened. Iranian forces in Syria are legitimately there. In late May a similar campaign repeated that scheme. It claimed that the Russian Foreign Minister had agreed to move Iran out, when in fact he had called on U.S. forces to leave Syria.

Reflections on Media Gone Russia-Wild

Flipping through the cable news stations last Saturday morning, I came across an amusing sight at Russia- frenzied MSNBC. There was the stern host Joy Reid (“#AM Joy”) giving a concerned and sympathetic interview to William Browder, a worried multimillionaire financier who said that Vladimir Putin wants to murder him.

“Are you afraid, Bill?” Joy Reid asked, “are you taking precautions for your safety?”

“Am I at risk of being killed by Vladimir Putin’s regime? …Yes,” Browder said, adding that there’s not much he can do “if they’re going to use chemical weapons to put poison on my door knob.”

Palestinian child killings spike in 2018

Israeli occupation forces raiding a refugee camp in the West Bank shot a 14-year-old boy in the chest, killing him, on Monday.

Arkan Thaer Halami Mizher was wounded as residents of Dheisheh camp near the city of Bethlehem confronted raiding soldiers.

“Israeli forces closed the main road, preventing ambulances from reaching the area,” Defense for Children International Palestine stated. The boy was taken in a private car to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Such raids are commonplace throughout the West Bank.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel's being the "assassination nation" of the Middle East puts the lie to its alleged existence as a democracy; the two are mutually exclusive.

Is Bill Browder the Most Dangerous Man in the World?

Bill Browder is what used to be referred to as an oligarch, having set up shop in 1999 as Hermitage Capital Management Fund, a hedge fund registered in tax havens Guernsey and the Cayman Islands. It focused on “investing” in Russia, taking advantage initially of the loans-for-shares scheme under Russia’s drunkard President Boris Yeltsin, and then continuing to profit greatly during the early years of Vladimir Putin. By 2005 Hermitage was the largest foreign investor in Russia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Corruption; money laundering, making false declarations on official documents; what a perfect poster child for the Democrats!!
