North Korea warns of 'merciless strike' ahead of US-South Korea drills

North Korea warned Sunday that the upcoming US-South Korea military exercises are "reckless behavior driving the situation into the uncontrollable phase of a nuclear war."

Pyongyang also declared that its army can target the United States anytime, and neither Guam, Hawaii nor the US mainland can "dodge the merciless strike."
The messages in Rodong Sinmun, the official government newspaper, come a day before the US starts the Ulchi Freedom Guardian military exercises with South Korea.

Tensions between the US and North Korea have grown in recent weeks.
Just last week, Pyongyang said it had finalized a plan to fire four missiles toward the US territory of Guam. State media reported that leader Kim Jong Un would assess the US' next move before giving launch orders.
Kim would "watch a little more the foolish and stupid conduct of the Yankees," a North Korean statement said last week

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK; the reality here is that North Korea hates these South Korean/US military drills because what they are practising for is an invasion of North Korea.

But were I a betting person, I would not bet against Kim Jung Un firing off a missile or two (or being made to appear as having done this, courtesy of a US false flag), before the end of these exercises on 31 August.

Refusing to Learn Lessons from Libya

Still Spinning

A full year after the commencement of NATO’s campaign against Gaddafi, former NATO Ambassador Ivo Daalder and NATO Supreme Allied Commander James Stravidis took to the pages of that reliable bellwether of establishment opinion, Foreign Affairs, to declare that “NATO’s operation in Libya has rightly been hailed as a model intervention.”

Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi shortly before he was killed on Oct. 20, 2011, in Sirte, Libya.
According to Daalder and Stravidis, “the alliance responded rapidly to a deteriorating situation that threatened hundreds of thousands of civilians rebelling against an oppressive regime.”

In 2016, a Clinton campaign press release justifying the ill-starred intervention, claimed “Qadhafi and his regime made perfectly clear what their plans were for dealing with those who stood up against his reign, using disgusting language in urging his backers to cleanse the country of these rebels. This was a humanitarian crisis.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Amazing, how people (very much including Secretary Clinton) continue to lie, and to subvert the real narrative as to why the US and NATO went into Libya:

Hillary Emails Reveal True Motive for Libya Intervention

And you have to wonder; when these emails are out in the open, indicating very clearly why the US and NATO went into Libya, why Clinton continues to lie about the real reason we went into Libya?!?

There is one thing at which sociopaths excel; that is lying, and making those lies sound perfectly believable. This is precisely what Clinton did here.

The Libyan military intervention went horrifically wrong; and those in the bowels of power in DC have to face up to that reality, or we will have Libya 2.0 happening somewhere else.

ANTIFA MANUAL FOUND On Evergreen College Campus: Shut Down Their Rallies…Force The Media To Show Our Side As The Righteous One

This copy of the Antifa Manual, that is used by the George Soros funded, violent, anti-American, anti free-speech radical group, was allegedly found on the Evergreen College campus. The content of this manual is disturbing and should be read by every American, so we understand what we are up against. It helps to explain why these groups call our President and his supporters “Hitler” or “racists” or “homophobes.” It’s not that Trump or his supporters are any of these things, it’s just part of a campaign to humiliate and shut down any opposition to radicals whose ultimate goal is a one world order and the destruction of capitalism in America.

Aug 20 08:01


In the good old days of the 1950s and 1960s, U.S. healthcare was more localized, and the central state (federal government) wasn’t the Sugar Daddy for the cartels. Hospitals were community hospitals (what a quaint idea in today’s hyper-cartelized system) managed by physicians and administrators who saw their role as serving the community rather than arranging for $20 million annual salaries and millions of dollars in stock options.

This is why the cartels love Medicare For All proposals: the federal government–protector and funder of the cartels–will give the cartels a blank check not just for the 120 million people currently drawing benefits from Medicare/Medicaid but for all 325 million Americans.

Fast facts on Medicare and Medicaid (Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services)

Medicare Beneficiaries: 57.7 million
Medicaid Beneficiaries: 72.3 million
estimated dual Beneficiaries (drawing benefits from both programs): 10 million

Total Beneficiaries: 120 million

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We not only have a military industrial complex in the country; we also have a medical industrial complex, which thrives when patients stay ill, both from mandated medications, and lousy eating habits.

You have to wonder at the "push" toward mandated vaccines, and why the medical industrial complex has been so keen (with purchased, legislative "assistance", no doubt) to force you to have vaccines. There is a medical reason, and its name is nagalese.

This is what this chemical, found in most US vaccines right now, does:

REVEALED: Cancer industry profits 'locked in' by nagalase molecule injected into humans via vaccines... spurs tumor growth... explains aggressive vaccine push

GCMAF, Nagalese, and cancer

Nagalese in vaccines

Molecule in most vaccines spurs cancer growth, is the reason for vaccine push

I hope I have your attention by now; the medical industrial complex is not about wellness, but about profits, and by any means necessary.

Moment knifeman 'wearing a fake suicide vest' flees after stabbing eight people in Russian knife rampage - as it is claimed he is the son of a known 'extremist supporter' of radical Islam

Siberian knifeman, was named locally as 19-year-old Artur Gadzhiev
He is believed to be from Dagestan, a strongly Muslim region of Russia
He was shot dead by armed police in a busy street in Surgut, central Russia
At least two people fighting for their lives while another five were hospitalised.

A teenage knifeman wearing a fake suicide belt wounded at least eight people in a frenzied attack in a Russia this morning.

The attacker, named locally as 19-year-old Artur Gadzhiev, was shot dead by police in a busy main street in Surgut, central Russia, at about 11.20am local time.

He is believed to be from Dagestan, a strongly Muslim region of Russia in the Caucasus.

Gadzhiev's father Lametulakh was reported to be registered with Russian police as an 'extremist' and 'supporter' of radical Islam.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When the interpretation of a religion teaches that the assassination of innocent people who have done no wrong to you is not only perfectly acceptable, but also your moral responsibility, there is something severely, horrifically wrong with that interpretation of that religion.

And to all the Imams who are touring Europe right now, condemning the violence of radical Islamists who have killed/hurt people, and offering compassion to the families and friends of the killed and wounded, your presence is desperately needed in Surgut.

Guys... please just go.

The Truth Will Not Be Googled

Google has come under scrutiny by free-speech organisations for shutting down neo-Nazi website, Daily Stormer, seemingly too distracted to notice the tech giant has been waging a censorship campaign against news organisations that publish content which conflicts with the narrative of the Washington establishment, along with Facebook and Twitter on the grounds of ‘fake news’.

GOOGLE Working with Liberal Groups to Snuff Out Conservative Websites…

Google revealed in a blog post that it is now using machine learning to document "hate crimes and events" in America. They've partnered with liberal groups like ProPublica, BuzzFeed News, and the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) to make information about "hate events" easily accessible to journalists. And now, there are troubling signs that this tool could be used to ferret out writers and websites that run afoul of the progressive orthodoxy.

America’s Second Civil War

The Screwing of America – They Are Not My Friends

The ancient proverb: “The enemy of my enemy is my friend,” might be applicable in some circumstances, and for now it seems to be working for the “left,” though they will undoubtedly turn on each other eventually. It certainly doesn't work for the “right,” when that “friend” is a pariah to the world, devaluing the overall message by their mere presence. -- Any alliance with evil is evil, and all sides of this mess are corrupted.

Bannon The Barbarian Goes "Thermonuclear"

So the Leninist Machiavelli now exits The Swamp to work at his preferred element; out there in the jungle trenches. Expect all hell to break loose.

Laying a trap for the Democrats

White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon listens at right as President Donald Trump speaks during a meeting on cyber security in the Roosevelt Room of the White House in Washington, Tuesday, Jan. 31, 2017.

‘Unleash the Beast’: Will Bannon’s White House Exit Divide Trump’s Base?
Bit torrents will flow explaining that Trump has offered Bannon as a sacrificial lamb to the jackals encircling his tumultuous presidency, even as Bannon has spun he wanted to be fired; after all he did offer his resignation in early August.

The game though is way more nuanced. Macchiavelli's loyalty to The Prince is undoubted — and he's certainly more helpful for Trump outside looking in.

"Colossal Fraud": Lawsuit Accuses Poland Spring Of Selling Groundwater

Ever wonder if that bottled mineral water you just spent several dollars on is really mineral water? According to a bombshell new lawsuit filed this week, at least in the case of one company it isn't.

A group of bottled water drinkers has brought a class action lawsuit against Nestle, the company which owns Poland Spring, alleging that the Maine business has long deceived consumers by mislabeling common groundwater. The lawsuit was filed on Tuesday in a Connecticut federal court and accuses Nestle Waters North America Inc. of a “colossal fraud perpetrated against American consumers” the Bangor Daily News reports.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable, but perfectly predictable from Nestle!

Furor erupts over killing of teenager as Philippines drugs war escalates

The Philippines police came under pressure on Friday to explain the killing of a high-school student after the 17-year-old became one of at least 80 people shot dead this week in an escalation of President Rodrigo Duterte's ruthless war on drugs.

Television channels aired CCTV footage that showed Kian Loyd Delos Santos being carried by two men to the place where his body was later found, raising doubt about an official report that said he was shot because he fired at police officers first.

Witnesses told the ABS-CBN channel that the teenager did not have a firearm and police officers at the scene handed him a gun, asked him to fire the weapon and run.

(For a graphic on Anti-drugs operations in the Philippines, click tmsnrt.rs/2fO2d3k)

National police chief Ronald dela Rosa said that if the Grade 11 student did not pose a threat, the officers who shot him on Thursday night would be held accountable.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Duterte, a word, please: there is an old, wise phrase that people who do not understand history...are doomed to repeat it.

This is precisely what you are doing in your painfully counterproductive "war on drugs." People who well have been completely innocent of drug-dealing, or drug-taking are being slaughters, indiscriminately, and there is only so much of that with which the Filipino people will put up.

There are some countries, like Portugal, which have decriminalised small amounts of drugs for personal use, but pushed counseling and support environments, and do you know what has happened, sir?!?

Let me show you in the following series of articles, how this has worked:

Portugal: what happened after they decriminalised drugs, from weed to heroin

In Portugal,
drug use is treated as a medical issue, not a crime

What Happened when Portugal decriminalized all drugs

14 years after Portugal decriminalised all drugs: where's what's happening

There is a way to make this happen successfully; but what you are doing right now is only going to exacerbate the problem; drive the costs of illegal drugs up, and insure the growing financial wealth of the cartels.

I hope someone around you reads this article and emails it to you; there is a way to make this happen successfully, without anyone getting shot who was potentially, completely innocent.

UN Aid Chief Slams Saudis for Blocking Yemen Aid

UN aid chief Stephen O’Brien issued statements Friday slamming the Saudi-led coalition attacking Yemen, along with the Saudi-backed government in south Yemen, saying they are “unilaterally denying and excessively delaying” entry of humanitarian aid into northern Yemen.

This has been a recurring problem throughout the war, as the Saudi coalition’s first act was to impose a naval blockade. Since then, they’ve tried to funnel aid shipments overwhelmingly to Aden, the de facto capital of their allies, while attacking and blockading Hodeidah, the last northern port.

O’Brien insisted that it was “simply wrong” for the coalition to insist that cargo go through Aden instead of Hodeidah, urging the countries to endorse a UN mechanism for allowing shipments into Hodeidah.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is going to happen when pigs fly.

Prince Salman's attitude toward Yemeni non-combatants seems to include all the following elements; kill combatants and non-combatants alike; starve the Yemeni people into death and submission by malnutrition, and then, with water infrastructure destroyed through Saudi bombings, let's have cholera (possibly weaponised) kill the rest!

And I have a question; where did the 66 million Prince Salmon donated to the UN for treating the cholera epidemic actually go?!?

Prince Salmon donates 66 million to the UN to treat cholera in Yemen, June 2017

Did Prince Salmon cynically give them the aid, understanding that by the time they got around to organising and distributing it with boots on the ground in Yemen, it would be too little too late, if they were able to get it into Yemen at all?!?

Well, here's the answer, and what we have heard about the "cholera vaccination program" for Yemen to date: take a look at this headline from the New York Slimes, dated 11 July, 2017:

U.N. Suspending Plan for Cholera Vaccination in Yemen

The article went on to say:

"The United Nations said on Tuesday that it was suspending plans for a cholera vaccination campaign in Yemen — reversing a decision made a month ago — because the disease’s rampant spread and the ravages of war there would make such an effort ineffective.

Jamie McGoldrick, the United Nations aid coordinator in Yemen, said plans for preventive vaccination were being “set aside.” He attributed the change to obstacles in delivering vaccines in the middle of a conflict that has crippled the country’s health system and hampered access to some areas threatened by the contagious disease."

So the bottom line here is, Prince Salmon makes the donation to the UN, understanding that the UN wouldn't be able to deliver cholera relief because of the instability the Saudi forces have created in the country, and he looks good, because it's now the UN's fault that this aid could not be delivered, not his fault because of the atrocities his troops have committed in Yemen.

It's a classic magic trick, and it has a name: that is "misdirection".

But Saudi Prince Salman, a word please; this is absolutely not working. Thinking Americans, and people around the world, know the "game" you are playing in this genocide against the Yemeni people, and want it to stop.

Iran Says Nikki Haley's Statement On Sanctions Is "Devoid Of Any Shred Of Truth"

The US last month approved a set of sanctions against Tehran, aimed at its missile program and support for terrorism, a move that officials and members of Congress have said is separate from the nuclear deal. But on Tuesday, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani warned that the sanctions violate the spirit of the deal.

Rouhani's speech has been taken as a warning that Iran will withdraw unilaterally from the deal, known by the acronym JPCOA, should US sanctions move forward. US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley swiftly fired off a statement condemning Rouhani's words.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Iranian Ambassador Gholamali Khoshroo is completely correct in his assessment; these additional sanctions, which have utterly nothing to do with the P5+1 deal, were engineered by the Congress of the Unhinged, Surveilled States of Amerika, to cause Iran to walk away from the P5 +1 deal, as the prelude to a war against it.

Israel would love to see regime change in Tehran, and alleges that Iran is its "existential threat" in the region, but with the costs in blood and money of that regime change only be paid in American blood and money.

There is, however, one little problem with this scenario; and that is the 14,000 lb gorilla in the living room, draped snoozing over the Bosendorfer Grand: that is Russia, and its formidable military capabilities.

Russian officials and military personnel have publicly gone on record, saying that if Iran is attacked, they will defend it militarily.

And so, I am hoping that those in the bowels of power in DC, at every level, are really evaluating what a war against Iran would look like, with Russia firmly on its side.

And I would like to hope that they realise that at this time in the US military's existence, it doesn't have the troop strength; the weaponry; the money; or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome against Russia in a conflict in Iran.

North Korea Sees Planned US-South Korea Wargames as ‘Catastrophe’

Various annually scheduled US wargames in and around the Korean Peninsula almost always provoke an increase in tension for their duration. The upcoming Ulchi-Freedom Guardian (UFG) exercise is particularly ill-timed on that front, coming amid dangerously high tensions already.

The exercise, which begins Monday, will last 10 days, and involve 20,500 foreign troops in a simulated defense of South Korea from an invasion by North Korea. The exercise is the largest annual computerized command-and-control operation in the world. North Korea has termed the decision to hold the exercise a “catastrophe.”

17,500 US soldiers will participate, along with troops from Australia, New Zealand, multiple NATO member nations, and Colombia. US officials say the exercise is designed to “increase readiness,” though again this comes after weeks of claiming that US troops were already ready for war with North Korea at a moment’s notice.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump, a word, please: yes, we all know that this exercise was planned way in advance.

That being said, sir; this is precisely the kind of activity against which North Korea's Kim Jung Un has complained so stridently, because what happens in these exercises, are the execution of the kinds of plans and drills necessary for invading his country.

The timing bites; and I am making a prediction that Kim Jung Un will respond with some kind of military display of force, perhaps the launch of another missile or missiles, before the end of these exercises on 31 August.

Trump Continues to Resist Pressure for Afghan EscalationPence, McMaster Lead Call for Escalation

Friday’s Camp David talks on Afghanistan appear to have ended without a final decision by President Trump on troop levels, as he continues to resist pressure from top cabinet officials to sign off on a massive escalation of the 16-year-old conflict with thousands of fresh troops.

Trump had initially delegated the decision to Defense Secretary James Mattis, but Mattis found a cap limiting his maximum deployment too restrictive. Now, Vice President Pence and National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster are also taking up the cause of large-scale escalation, pushing Trump to accept the recommendations of the commanders.

Pence and McMaster were at the Camp David meeting, but Blackwater founder Erik Prince, who has been pushing a “privatize the war” initiative, was blocked, apparently at the behest of McMaster. Trump aide Steve Bannon, another skeptic of military escalation, was sacked outright.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would politely like to point out that doing the same thing, in precisely the same way, yet expecting a different outcome, is one of the classic definitions of insanity.

A large scale escalation of anything less than hundreds of thousands of US troops will not create a "win" in Afghanistan; and without the reintroduction of the draft (which may well happen on President Trump's watch), we simply do not have the troop strength to accommodate a huge escalation of troops here.

It is highly unfortunate that the only "President Whisperers" we have in the White House now are Kelly, Mattis, and Mc Master, because all will see war as the only possibility for moving forward, and they are completely, totally, wrong on this issue.

And please note Senator Graham's terrifying statement in the last paragraph:

"The ever-hawkish Sen. Lindsey Graham (R – SC) appears also to be pushing the narrative that it’s impossible for the war not to continue to be escalated, arguing that the US would have “another 9/11” if they stopped occupying Afghanistan a mere generation after the last terrorist attack".

Air Force Chief: Israel Has Attacked Syrian Arms Convoys Nearly 100 Times in 5 Years: Brags That Many of Israel's Attacks Go 'Under the Radar'

Providing the most specific details yet on Israel’s ongoing series of military strikes inside war-torn Syria, Air Force Chief Maj. Gen. Amir Eshel revealed today that Israel has carried out nearly 100 distinct military actions over the last five years specifically related to what they believed were Hezbollah-bound arms convoys.

This comes less than a month after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was caught on an open microphone admitting to “dozens” of strikes in Syria, though obviously this is far greater, because many Israel strikes on Syria clearly were not Hezbollah related.

Indeed, recently reported Israeli strikes in Syria have almost always been the result of stray artillery shells landing in empty territory inside the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, and Israel responding by attacking Syrian military bases in the area.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israeli Air Force Chief Maj. Gen. Amir Eshel's testosterone-fueled hubris cannot hide the reality that these have been illegal attacks against a sovereign foreign government, which Israel was hoping to get regime-changed through their, and the US military's, efforts; they did not work.

So now, with the distinct possibility that an independent Kurdistan may well be carved out of areas of Syria, one has to wonder; just what is Israel prepared to do militarily now, to attempt to force out the existing, and duly elected, government out in Damascus?!?

U.S. forces to stay in Syria for decades, say militia allies

Washington's main Syrian ally in the fight against Islamic State says the U.S. military will remain in northern Syria long after the jihadists are defeated, predicting enduring ties with the Kurdish-dominated region.

The U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), an alliance of militias dominated by the Kurdish YPG, believes the United States has a "strategic interest" in staying on, SDF spokesman Talal Silo told Reuters.

"They have a strategy policy for decades to come. There will be military, economic and political agreements in the long term between the leadership of the northern areas (of Syria) ... and the U.S. administration," Silo said.

The U.S.-led coalition against Islamic State has deployed forces at several locations in northern Syria, including an airbase near the town of Kobani. It has supported the SDF with air strikes, artillery, and special forces on the ground.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but have Syria's Al Assad and Russia's Putin received the memo on this?!?

Merkel, called 'traitor', defends refugee stance in rowdy east Germany

German Chancellor Angela Merkel was greeted with shouts of "traitor" by a rowdy group of right-wing protesters in east Germany on Thursday as she defended her decision to allow hundreds of thousands of refugees into the country.

Roughly five weeks before an election in which she is expected to win a record-tying fourth term, Merkel veered from her stump speech, acknowledging "difficult times" in 2015 when a flood of asylum seekers, many from the Middle East, entered Germany.

It was her first campaign stop in eastern Germany, parts of which have been fertile ground for anti-immigration politics.

"Many people were worried. They said to themselves: 'What about us? Are we still important or are only the refugees important'?" she told a crowd of several thousand in the central market square in Annaberg-Buchholz, a town in the state of Saxony near the Czech border.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Notice that this question remains unanswered in the rest of her speech.

Immigration ultimately means votes; that is what Merkel's party is counting on, in the long term, regardless of the harm and displacement it is causing German nationals now.

Dems risk culture war fight in Charlottesville response

President Donald Trump’s widely criticized response to white supremacist violence in Virginia has left Democrats in a quandary: how to seize the moral high ground without getting sucked into a politically perilous culture war.

Democrats have denounced Trump for blaming “both sides” for deadly protests in Charlottesville, Virginia, and, more recently, for defending Confederate monuments.

But the party faces a complex task: While addressing race and history in ways that reflect the party’s values, Democrats also need to focus on issues like jobs and the economy that resonate with a wider range of voters, including white independents, ahead of the 2018 midterm election.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When you erase history, you erase a sense of who people are, and where you actually come from; dictatorships love to do that, and there is a quote going around this last week from George Orwell, in his book "1984":

“The past was erased, the erasure was forgotten, the lie became the truth.”

Slavery was a part of the fabric of this country for quite some time; this is reality. Slavery was abolished in 1865 by the 13th Amendment to the Constitution. Does prejudice against minorities still exist in 21st century America?!? The honest answer is, yes; it is both institutional and educational, and translates as a belief that minorities are pathologically incapable of dealing with life without government intervention, and interference.

I am quite certain that our African-American; Asian; Middle Eastern, Hispanic, and other minorities, would beg to differ on that issue.

But in the 20th century, we had a brilliant civil rights movement, led by one of my great heroes, Dr. Martin Luther King; he was a great opponent of the Vietnam war, in which African Americans were disproportionately getting killed and maimed for life. He was ultimately assassinated by elements of the American government for his community-unifying, anti-war views.

Did You Know? US Gov’t Found Guilty In Conspiracy To Assassinate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The Democrats would love nothing better than turning this country into a thoroughly history-fluid, independent-information-squelched, society, completely detached from where it has come, and incapable of the critical thinking necessary when it comes to resolving societal challenges in the 21st century.

The DNC has become the Big Brother party of no real answers, coupled with the edict "give us your money, your belief, and your obedience, and we will take care of you."

That "taking care of" bit, under President Obama, meant more failed wars in the Middle East, costing Americans billions, if not trillions of dollars; "Common Core" education, which is simply indoctrination coupled with participation trophies; hideously expensive medical care, with thoroughly lousy outcomes; and extraordinarily bad judgement on war-fighting hardware, which has given the US military the ongoing debacle which is the F-35.

I know who I am; I am a 68 year old Christian pacifist activist, who constantly exhorts her government to resolve its geopolitical differences through hard won, moral negotiations, rather than war. I am a composer, who loves to be in the process of creating music.

Therefore, I will not allow anyone outside of me to define who I am, or attempt to develop a false narrative about who I am, and where I come from; and I humbly ask our readers to stay authentic, and know your own personal history, and not allow anyone to define who you are, outside of yourself.

What the Announced NSA / Cyber Command Split Means

Cyberwar and cyber intelligence are diverging, as are Cyber Command and the NSA. Here’s what that means for the man who leads both entities, the future of signals intelligence collection, and cyberwarfare.

The move to elevate Cyber Command to a full Unified Combatant Command and split it off from the National Security Agency or NSA shows that cyber intelligence collection and information war are rapidly diverging fields. The future leadership of both entities is now in question, but the Pentagon has set out a conditions-based approach to the breakup. That represents a partial victory for the man who directs both Cyber Command and the NSA.

Something stinks about Charlottesville

By Russ Vaughn

Evidence is turning up from, of all places, the Southern Poverty Law Center, as well as Breitbart and others, that this character, Jason Kessler, who organized the suspicious and supposed Alt-Right demonstration in Charlottesville, Va. that blew up in everyone's face, is a cunning lefty holdover from the Occupy Wall Street movement and a former Barack Obama supporter. I smell Soros money, sabotage, and Democrat dirty tricks here.

The reporting of Kessler's background, as well as that of Charlottesville mayor and Democrat activist Mike Signer and Vice Mayor Wes Bellamy, has convinced me that Charlottesville was a Democratic Party black operation, planned, organized, and carried out to its successful conclusion, to make the media portray all these conservative whites as stupid, racist, and violent.

Russian Foreign Ministry Seizes On Obama’s Tweet, Points Out Hypocrisy of Obama’s Murder Of Ghaddafi

By Brandon Turbeville

The Messiah of the pro-war left, Barack Obama, recently took to Twitter after the race riots in Virginia to quote Nelson Mandela in a condemnation of racism. The tweet, however, was much more likely a clever act of opportunism to galvanize the fascist left in their own perceived racial struggles against Donald Trump. It worked and, subsequently, Obama’s tweet became the most-liked tweet in Twitter’s short history.

A Domestic Destabilization Is Underway: “The Left Is Fueling And Funding Tensions In Order To Exacerbate Them And Cause A Revolution”

Under the guise of “political correctness,” cities (such as Baltimore, MD) are removing their Confederate monuments one-by-one and under cover of darkness. Here, as reported by CBS News:

“The Robert E. Lee and Thomas J. “Stonewall” Jackson monument at Wyman Park Dell was removed with a crowd watching. The Robert B. Taney monument in Mt. Vernon also came down. Crews are on the site of the confederate Women’s monument at University Parkway to take that one down. This comes just days after the Baltimore City Council passed a resolution Monday calling for the immediate deconstruction of these monuments.”

There it is! Straight out of the movie “The Patriot” with Mel Gibson, as with the character he played, Benjamin Martin: “An elected legislature can trample a man’s rights as easily as a king.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Although I respect this author, and have frequently linked to his articles at shtfplan, I disagree with him on this issue, and here is why.

I think that this destabilisation under way is more a product of the Deep State, in an effort to get Trump to declare martial law, and suspend the Constitution and Bill of rights.

Then, the warmongers among them can proceed with all the wars they have hatched, against North Korea; Iran; Russia; and China, and all peaceful, logical criticism of these wars will be forbidden.

If people persist with their criticism, they may well be jailed, or worse.

And if you don't think that the US is preparing for a war against Russia and China, please read the following article by Paul Craig Watson:

From the State of California's "You Can't Make this stuff up" Department: 1 Year in Jail for Using Wrong Transgender Pronoun

A new bill being considered by the California State Senate would punish people who “willfully and repeatedly” refuse “to use a transgender resident’s preferred name or pronouns” in a public health, retirement or housing institution.

The bill, SB 219, was proposed by State Sen. Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco). It includes several other provisions that require a health facility, for example, to honor the gender identity of a patient, meaning that the patient must be admitted to a room that comports with his or her chosen gender; allowed to use whatever bathroom he or she wants to use; and wear whatever clothing or cosmetics he or she decides to wear. It has gone through several amendments.

CBN News notes: “Fines for repeat offenders could be as high as $1,000 and a jail term of up to a year.”

CBN also reports the testimony of the California Family Council’s Greg Burt:

How Can We Learn From The Past If We Erase History?

Amazon has sold out of copies of George Orwell’s authoritarian classic, 1984, and they won’t have more until Feb. 2nd. The book was the number one bestseller on Tuesday and Wednesday. The publishing company, Penguin, is rushing more copies to print.

This surge in sales came after Trump’s senior adviser Kellyanne Conway used the creepy term “alternative facts” to explain away some misleading statements in White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer’s statement to the press. (source)
Alas, my hope was short lived.

All sorts of breathless articles were penned, comparing President Trump to Big Brother. (This one, for example.) But then, something else happened. And it isn’t good.

1984 has become an instruction manual.

"This Is Dangerous": Digital Activists Slam Tech Firms For Banning Neo-Nazi Websites

As social media and internet companies scramble to ban or otherwise cut ties with extremist and far right-wing websites like the neo-nazi Daily Stormer, which were unceremoniously dropped by the likes of GoDaddy, Google and security firm Cloudflare earlier this week after helping to organize last weekend's deadly "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville, a prominent nonprofit has come forward to defend them.

The Electronic Frontier Foundation, or EFF, best known for its activism surrounding net neutrality has a simple message: even though you don’t agree with their message, banning people from the internet is a slippery slope. Which is why it called on domain-name companies like Google and GoDaddy to “draw a hard line” and not remove or suspend websites based solely on their content.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Well done, EFF, well done: bravo!!

USA Is Now Twice As Likely To 'Default' Than Germany

While the market turmoil (stocks down a few percentage points from all-time record highs) is being pinned on various factors (from North Korea, Trump, & Cohn to terrible retailer earnings and J-Hole anxiety), we suspect the real cause of market uncertainty is starting to peak through - the looming debt ceiling crisis that has now become too big and too imminent to ignore.

Of course, uncertainty in The White House is starting to make investors realize the chance of successfully navigating the debt ceiling crisis without a government shutdown are dwindling...

With the T-Bill market pricing in serious disruption at the end of September, the risk of a technical default for US Treasury debt is starting to rise and is now spiking relative to Germany.

And please remember; September is just a couple of weeks away!

PAUL CRAIG ROBERTS: Because Trump held both sides accountable for C...ville violence, the Left accuses him of supporting White Supremacists

What the liberal/progressive/left is trying to do with Charlottesville is to associate Trump supporters with White Supremacists and in this way demonize Trump supporters so that they will not have a voice when Trump is overthrown in a coup. Or it can be put in a different way: Charlottesville is being used by someone to discredit Trump and the people who elected him in order to pave the way for a coup, and the liberal/progressive/left is enabling the plot.

Upon reflection, I think that for most of the liberal/progressive/left the denunciations and one-sided interpretation of Charlottesville are just the ingrained knee-jerk reaction of people brought up in Identity Politics. In Identity Politics, everyone is a White Hat except racist, sexist, homophobic, gun-nut white males. The only tolerable white males are those who accept this characterization of themselves. All others are “white supremacists” or “nazis.”

Why Was This 'Crowd Hire' Company Recruiting $25 An Hour 'Political Activists' In Charlotte Last Week?

Now, the discovery of a craigslist ad posted last Monday, almost a full week before the Charlottesville protests, is raising new questions over whether paid protesters were sourced by a Los Angeles based "public relations firm specializing in innovative events" to serve as agitators in counterprotests.

The ad was posted by a company called "Crowds on Demand" and offered $25 per hour to "actors and photographers" to participate in events in the "Charlotte, NC area." While the ad didn't explicitly define a role to be filled by its crowd of "actors and photographers" it did ask applicants to comment on whether they were "ok with participating in peaceful protests."

Charlottesville Police Come Forward: We Were Told to “STAND DOWN” to Ignite Race War (Video)

A Charlottesville police officer has come forward to express his outrage at being told to “stand down” by the city mayor during violent clashes between protesters.

The officer also claims the protests, which pitched “white supremacists” against members of Antifa, were “set up” to allow for the groups to ignite into exactly what happened.

“We [Charlotesville police] were ordered to bring the rival groups together. As soon as they were in contact with each other, we were told to stand down. It was outrageous. We weren’t allowed to arrest anyone without asking the mayor first. We weren’t even allowed to stop the driver as he sped away.“

“The event was being set up as far back as at least May and it went like clockwork.”

"Armageddon Risk" Returns: North Korea Predicts "Catastrophe" As Massive U.S. War Games Begin Monday

Traders barely had time to enjoy the lull from the "Armageddon trade" - the rising possibility of a nuclear exchange between the US and North Korea, which peaked over the weekend when various US officials said a nuclear war is not imminent, echoed by a statement by N. Korea's state-run news agency KCNA, before a new set of worries promptly took over, chief among them the ongoing slow motion train wreck in Donald Trump's administration coupled with yesterday's double terrorist attacks in Spain. Alas, "nuclear war" risk is about to come back with a vengeance because on Monday US and South Korea are scheduled to begin joint military exercises, a massive show of force which every time in the past has infuriated North Korea, sometimes triggering a show of force.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The tensions over North Korea may have declined, but they are not over, by a long shot; and this is precisely the kind of orangutanesque, chest-thumping, martial behaviour, on the part of South Korea and the US military, that the North has consistently decried, and asked both countries to stop.

I expect to see something happen militarily from North Korea, before these joint exercises are completed by 31 August.

Grand jury expands felony indictment of Wasserman Schultz’s former IT aide

A former House IT aide who had access to emails and files of dozens of Democratic lawmakers has been indicted on four counts, including bank fraud and engaging in unlawful monetary transactions.

Imran Awan, 37, an information technology (IT) aide who worked for Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Florida) and dozens of other lawmakers in the House, was indicted on four felony counts Thursday, according to court documents obtained by the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

Wasserman Schultz, the former chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) who was forced to step down over Wikileaks revelations that she worked against Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders’ 2016 campaign in favor of Hillary Clinton, only fired Awan on July 25, following his arrest.

That said, I’ll give my my quick two cents on the Nazi, white supremacist hysteria currently being amplified by the corporate media.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Caring about your country, and being a true patriot, means that you have the courage, and logic, to praise what your country's leadership may be doing correctly, but also challenge it on what you believe it is doing that is wrong, and immoral.

President Trump has taken a strong stand against illegal immigration, and I applaud that. Illegal immigration has cost this country intensely, and it has to stop.

The Fiscal Cost of Unlawful Immigrants and Amnesty to the U.S. Taxpayer

Sorry, but illegal aliens cost the US plenty

I am, however, deeply concerned about the Trump Administration's having "gotten into bed" with the Saudi royal family, and colluding with the Saudi military in war crimes in Yemen.

The US military is enabling the Saudis in their slaughter of non-combatants:

images: Yemeni children killed and maimed for life, courtesy of US-enabled Saudi bombing attacks

And today, we have this chilling report from the UN:

Leaked UN Report: Saudi Coalition responsible for Math Child Deaths in Yemen

With US military assistance, Yemeni ports have been shut down, meaning that no food can get into the country; this has translated into the deaths of thousands of Yemeni children from complications of malnutrition:

Yemeni children suffering from malnutrition

And now, as a result from the dual factors of malnutrition, coupled with the Saudis having bombed all of Yemen's water infrastructure into rubble, we have cholera in Yemen.

Yemeni children suffering from cholera

Cholera hits 500,000 people in Yemen

Oh, and have I mentioned that the Saudis are using white phosphorous weapons in Yemen?!?

Saudi Arabia appears to be using U.S.-supplied white phosphorus in its war in Yemen

And what about the Saudis's use of depleted uranium weapons in Yemen?!?

Video show Saudi troops using depleted uranium weapons in Yemen

Massive uptick in infant Yemeni deformities suggests that the US and/or UK have supplied Saudis with depleted uranium weapons

We no longer have the luxury, as a nation, of being ignorant jingoists, regurgitating whatever propaganda is fed to us by the presstitutes and whorespondents, spewing the official government line on whatever is their "agenda du jour"; we need to become "Seven Day Awareists", intellectually capable of separating the truth of a situation from the fantasy the American Deep State constantly wants to sell us.

I won't kid you; this is hard work, but worth it; this country, and its values, as represented by the Constitution and Bill of Rights, is worth the aggravation of attempting to save by creating a national dialogue about what is done, domestically and internationally, in our names and with our tax dollars.

Finland 'terror attack': Live updates as three knife-wielding attackers 'shouting Allahu Akbar' stab at least nine people leaving 'one dead'

One person has been killed and at least eight others have been hospitalised after 'three knife-wielding attackers' went on the rampage in Finland, it is reported.

Armed police officers are said to have shot one suspect in the leg after the group allegedly started stabbing people in the city of Turku this afternoon.

As they carried out the terrifying attack, cries of "Allahu Akbar" were apparently heard - although the phrase sounds like "watch out" in Finnish.

It’s become a near-weekly occurrence. Somewhere in some state, the FBI will announce that they’ve foiled yet another terrorist plot and saved lives. However, as the data shows, the majority of these cases involve psychologically diminished patsies who’ve been entirely groomed, armed, and entrapped by FBI agents. Simply put, the FBI manufactures terror threats and then takes credit for stopping them.

While many of these cases have garnered attention and been exposed in the alternative media, a recent case out of Oklahoma sets a new low for FBI and exposes how insidious these plots can be.

Through the hundreds of ‘foiled terror plots’ the FBI has ‘busted’ over the years, many of them have been focused on people of Middle Eastern descent or people associated with ISIS or Al Qaeda. This time, in the case of Jerry Drake Varnell, the 23-year-old diagnosed schizophrenic, accused of attempting to bomb a bank, the FBI fomented terror from a right wing dialogue.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Such actions are vile, and should be criminally prosecuted; but such behaviour, attempting to turn, then arrest, a diagnosed paranoid schizophrenic, is perfectly acceptable, to the Fomenting Bowels of Insanity.

Instead, the departing board members were allowed to take an early retirement. And the replacements are either already on Wells Fargo’s payroll, or come from close corporate partners.

The Berkeley area teacher who pummeled a white nationalist last year, and just recently was arrested on assault charges for that attack, is claiming that “standing up to fascism is not a crime.”

By Any Means Necessary’s Yvette Felarca, who teaches in the Berkeley Unified School District, said at her arraignment that “Standing up against the rise of Nazism […] in this country is not a crime,” and added “We have the right to defend ourselves.”

As reported by The College Fix, Felarca was caught on video in June of last year “punch[ing] the man in the stomach repeatedly, before throwing him to the ground.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My dear Ms. Falarca, a word please: it appears that your alleged "standing up to fascism" always translates into the person whose ideology you cannot stand, getting physically beaten.

I would like to invoke the memory of the late Dr. Martin Luther King, one of my greatest heroes of the 20th century, who created massive positive change without every hitting anyone or without firing a single shot.

Had this man not been a Christian, a pacifist, and a great admirer of Gandhi, God only knows in what direction the civil rights movement in this country could have gone.

What you have done, Ms. Falarca, is to encourage mob violence, which may ultimately result in the suspension of the Constitution, and the imposition of martial law; is that your design intent, when you physically beat up people with whom you do not agree?!?

Or did you not realise that your actions may well have these consequences?!?

Are you not constantly advocating against bullying in your classroom?!? Bullying outside the classroom also has no moral justification either; and you are deluding yourself, if you think that there is a difference in your actions, when you punched a man in the stomach, then threw him to the ground.

Here are the Confederate memorials that will be removed after Charlottesville

More than 150 years after the Civil War ended, the Confederacy is memorialized with statues, monuments and historical markers across the United States.

Some say they mark history and honor heritage. Others argue they are racist symbols of America's dark legacy of slavery.

A nationwide debate surrounding this issue has been underway since Dylann Roof killed nine African-Americans in a Charleston, South Carolina, church in 2015 in an effort to "start a race war." And it flared up again after white nationalists marched last weekend to protest the removal of a Robert E. Lee statue in Charlottesville, Virginia, where a counterprotester was killed amid violent clashes between demonstrators.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Aug 18 08:28


Two psychologists, James Mitchell and Bruce Jessen, who were contracted by the CIA to develop torture techniques, agreed to a confidential settlement with torture survivors.

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) sued Mitchell and Jessen on behalf of Suleiman Abdullah Salim, Mohamed Ahmed Ben Soud, and the family of Gul Rahman. The lawsuit alleged the CIA contractors committed crimes that included water torture, forcing prisoners into boxes, and chaining prisoners in painful stress positions to walls.

“We brought this case seeking accountability and to help ensure that no one else has to endure torture and abuse, and we feel that we have achieved our goals,” the plaintiffs said in a joint statement posted by the ACLU.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In a just world, these two pieces of work should be cooling their heels in a jail cell, and not in a Club Fed, for the rest of their miserable lives.

But this is not a just world, and those who purvey torture techniques are honored, and protected, by the governments who put their practices in place with impunity.

The only penalties imposed were financial, and most probably, easily paid off.

Mitchell and Jessen should be shunned, henceforward and forever, by the profession of psychology: they are among the true monsters among us, and the fact that the Bush administration embraced what they offered, makes them monsters as well.

I would like to politely point out the following; when a country signs off on torture, or outsources it, that telegraphs to the world that for all the codswallop about valuing human rights, human dignity, and the protection of prisoners of war, that country observes those values in the breach, and not in the observation, of those values.

It also gives countries which do not like the United States carte blanche to torture US civilians and military personnel.

So please, all of those with family and friends in the military, please chew on that last one for a little while, OK?!?

LIVE: PM says reports of missing British child amid Spain terror

A manhunt is under way for the driver of a van that crashed into a crowd in Barcelona killing 13 people.

Five suspected terrorists were then killed in a shoot-out with Spanish police in Cambrils as they carried out a similar vehicle attack, killing one person
The Catalan government says the two attacks, which happened hours apart, are linked.

Authorities investigating both attacks believe a cell of at least eight people may have been involved.

Islamic State says it carried out the attack in Barcelona, according to its Amaq agency.

The UK Government is "urgently looking into reports of a child believed missing" who is a British dual national.

The federal case against Imran Awan, a former IT aide for Democratic Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, expanded Thursday with an indictment on four counts including conspiracy and making false statements.
He originally was charged with a single bank fraud count; his wife Hina Alvi also was indicted Thursday.

The grand jury decision in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia comes roughly a month after Awan was arrested at Dulles airport in Virginia trying to board a plane to Pakistan, where his family is from.

Awan and other IT aides for House Democrats have been on investigators’ radar for months over concerns of possible double-billing, alleged equipment theft, and access to sensitive computer systems. Most lawmakers fired Awan in February, but Schultz had kept him on until his arrest in July.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Wasserman Shultz and Clinton will walk away, with no criminal indictments against them; Awan and his family will be the "sacrificial lambs" to be slaughtered here (hopefully, only metaphorically), to insure that happens.

Working for the Clintonistas, although lucrative, always has a price attached.

Throughout the 2016 campaigning cycle, then candidate Trump frequently criticized NATO as “obsolete” and repeatedly knocked allies for not paying their “fair share.”

Then, in a shocking reversal, Trump hosted a joint press conference with NATO Secretary General Stoltenberg, just a few months after moving into the White House, in which he declared: "I said it was obsolete. It's no longer obsolete."

"The Secretary General and I had a productive discussion about what more NATO could do in the fight against terrorism. I complained about that a long time ago and they made a change. And now they do fight terrorism. I said it was obsolete. It's no longer obsolete."

“Start Throwing Rocks”: Washington Post Op-Ed Calls For More Violence In The Streets

So how did we get to this place? How did we reach a point where America resembles Wiemar Germany, with white nationalists and socialist thugs battling it out on the streets and killing people?

If I were to pick one culprit for this mess, it would be the mainstream media. They’re the ones who have, for the most part, stood behind leftist ideologues for decades, and allowed them to bury public discourse under a wave of identity politics. They are at the very least, partly to blame. They’ve helped stoke divisions in this country that were once faint, or in the process of healing.

And if you don’t think the mainstream media is responsible for nudging our country towards war in the streets, then you should read this op-ed that was recently published by the Washington Post. It was written by N.D.B. Collins, an associate professor at Johns Hopkins University. In it, he appears to shamelessly call for the left to spawn more riots and violence in this country.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This definitely smacks of Deep State manipulation, in order to see more unrest, which ultimately will result in President Trump being pressured to suspend the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and establish martial law, nationally.

More violence will only beget more violence; I cannot believe, for one moment, that Dr. N.D.B. Collins really believes this is the right path to follow.

But agents of the Deep State can come from surprising backgrounds, and have some interesting agendas.

It appears that whoever is sponsoring this article at the Washington Compost, is hoping such violence will have President Trump invoke martial law, so that
the warmongers in President Trump's cabinet, can get their wars on, with even peaceful protest forbidden.

Socrates discusses death of democracy, hubris of empire, devolution to civil war. ‘We the People’ of the US’ choice: follow that path OR demand .01% arrests for OBVIOUS crimes of war, looting, lying

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

“The strong do what power allows. The weak accept what they must.” – Athenian 415 BC envoy to the small government of Melos, with the offer to either join Athens’ empire with paying them tribute, or have all men executed, and everyone else sold into slavery. Melos politely declined Athens’ offer. Athens attacked, did exactly what they threatened, and resettled the emptied island with 500 Athenian colonists. – Melian Dialogue of Socrates’ contemporary historian, Thucydides.

language warning: Socrates and I speak in the same direct language that caused his execution for “corrupting the young.”

Young Turks Bought Up by Clinton/Obama Backers, Vulture Capitalists and unDemocratic Party “kingmaker” for $20 Million

Cenk Uygur is trying to play it cool, telling his followers this is not a big deal when in fact it is. Well, Cenk has been a tool of the establishment, trying to pretend he isn’t for years. His Youtube empire, the Young Turks, was started with seed money from a centrist republican years ago and Cenk has been pushing the centrist message ever since. You have to remember, when Cenk was on MSNBC he spread Clinton’s lies about Gaddafi on a daily basis, doing his level best to convince progressives to tacitly support her illegal and immoral regime change operation in Libya. And he’s done the same shit ever since.

So Cenk Uygur has always been a sellout piece of shit… now he’s just sold out more.
