Military-Funded Study Predicts When You’ll Protest on Twitter

Ever get angry, go to Twitter, and shoot off a protest tweet tagged #Arabspring, #AppleVsFBI, #syrianconflict or something else in solidarity with a cause? Whether the tweet is part of a violent movement, a peaceful action, or simply a response to a debate, military and national security types have an interest in predicting how big any given protest movement might become. A new study by researchers at Arizona State University, Texas A&M, and Yahoo, funded in part by the Office of Naval Research, can predict with 70 percent accuracy the likelihood that your next tweet will be part of a protest.

Patrick Tucker is technology editor for Defense One. He’s also the author of The Naked Future: What Happens in a World That Anticipates Your Every Move? (Current, 2014).

I tend not to tweet; and whatever is on my Facebook page is absolute, and sheer, vanilla.

Everything I have to say can pretty much be read from my posts here.

And to anyone in any US "alphabet soup" agency reading this (which MUST count as punishment duty), know this: I am a Christian pacifist activist who never advocates violence.

Deal with it!! :-)

Russians Ride Fast – Israel Shamir

If the rebels grasp the chance and enter serious negotiations for a coalition government, peace is possible.

The Russians accepted the US proposal to cease fire in Syria (or rather to end hostilities). They had made a similar proposal a few weeks ago, so this is in line with their thinking. Russians have made huge successes in Syria; they achieved an astonishing and unexpected victory with very few losses.

It was a reputational victory it was as well as a military one. Russia entered the Syrian war at a low point internationally.

Man charged in Michigan attacks had no barriers to guns

PLAINWELL, Mich. — A man accused of randomly killing six people in Michigan had a personal cache of weapons that included handguns and long guns, but there was nothing in his past that prevented him from owning as many guns as he could afford.

Authorities seized the gun collection after the weekend attacks around the Kalamazoo area. With no criminal history or record of mental illness, Michigan residents who follow requirements can legally acquire any number of firearms.

Here’s How We Got Here: A Short Primer On The History Of The Petrodollar

In 1971, Nixon closed the door by removing the ability of any member nation to convert into gold. The dollar (used as the world’s reserve currency) was still the reserve; however, it was completely fiat at this point. At this time, President Nixon dispatched Kissinger to Saudi Arabia with a scheme that made extortionists pale in comparison.

The ruling House of Saud in Saudi Arabia was offered a deal by Kissinger with four parts.

America’s military would guarantee protection of Saudi Arabia and her oilfields.
The U.S. would also sell the Saudis any weapons needed.
The U.S. would furthermore guarantee protection from Israel and the other countries of the region.
Finally, the Saudi family was ensured that they would rule in perpetuity.

Presstitutes At Work: “Dangerous Lies Pumped Out by the US Media”. This is “Democratic” America…

This morning I was stuck in front of a Fox “News” broadcast for a short period and then with a NPR news program. It was enough to convince me that Nazi propaganda during Hitler’s Third Reich was very mild compared to the constant stream of dangerous lies that are pumped out constantly by the American media.

The New York Times, Washington Post, and a couple of think-tank types were represented on NPR. They delivered the most crude propaganda imaginable and questioned no US government statement.

Did you know that all the trouble in Syria is due to the Russians and Assad?

The US has no blame whatsoever. The US is trying to fight ISIS (which the US created, aids and abets), but the evil Russians and Assad are fighting the innocent “democratic rebels” who are trying to bring democracy to Syria as a replacement for a “brutal dictator” (elected by a large majority vote).

Democrats: Do You Realize Your Votes Don’t Matter? Hillary Already Won

While most of us already know the system is rigged and our votes aren’t worth the electronic voting machine we type them into regardless of which side of the carpet we’re voting on, this election with Hillary vs. Bernie has proven, without a doubt, that Dem votes don’t even pretend to matter — OPENLY!

Hillary will win the Dem nomination no matter what because she already has all the superdelegates. This isn’t about it being rigged for Hillary in some shady hidden manner (although that’s obvious too)… but on the surface, the Democrats have already been told by the DNC chair that their votes are worthless. It’s blatant and overt and everyone knows it. Hillary already has all the superdelegates in her pocket so there’s no way Bernie can possibly win anyway.

So why are they even continuing this charade?

MH17: The Buk videos are fake

It is possible to not only fake certain photos, but to also fake certain videos with the help of software. Just because the source of the material is a social media site, it does not mean that the material is authentic by default nor that the uploader doesn’t serve someone’s interests. Social media can be used to anonymously spread disinformation, fake photos and videos. It also allows certain entities to upload their own fake material, to show it later at a press conference and claim that its source is social media.

Rand: Obama's New Supreme Court Justice Will Be a "Conflict of Interest" to Decide Immigration's Constitutionality

It's like no one knows math.

After the untimely (or, timely, depending on from who’s perspective you look at it) death of Justice Scalia, Obama is now set to nominate his third Supreme Court justice — out of only nine justices — for life. While campaigning for reelection in Kentucky, Rand Paul talked about the huge “conflict of interest” this poses.

Citing the recent 5-4 Supreme Court ruling that halted Obama’s Clean Power Plan, Paul said that with the absence of Scalia, a sympathetic appointee would tip the scales in favor of the president’s immigration policies.

The False Smart Meter Narrative And Lessons from St. Louis Radioactive Clouds

By Patricia Burke

Insightful students of history readily note parallels between the Manhattan-Rochester coalition’s covert research on radiation weaponry in the 1950s, and the smart meter narrative in the U.S. today.

Unethical human experimentation took place on vulnerable populations in Missouri in the decades following WWII. The public narrative was that scientists were researching whether they could shield American cities from Russian warplanes using harmless smokescreen cloud dispersals.

In truth, college students were not privy to the true nature of the tests which were to spray low-income predominantly black neighborhoods in St. Louis with radioactive materials, for scientists studying offensive weaponry...

Bill Gates Says Apple Is Wrong for Not "Helping" the FBI, Built Back Doors into All Windows Software Since 1999

He's twisting the narrative to make it seem like this skeleton key, once in existence, wouldn't be used again and again on other people's phones (and will be forever).

His argument isn't even a very good one.

This is about setting a precedent for having our 4th Amendment rights trampled on even further in this country, and as we all know, Gates is the poster boy for that.

The average person's privacy in the technological age means less than nothing to billionaire Bill, whose programmers reportedly "accidentally" built National Security Agency back doors into all Windows software starting in 1999.

Does ISIS really have SEVEN-FOOT tall executioners? Parts of grisly film showing beheading of 21 Christians were faked, claim experts

So what grade would you give Rita Katz' SITE Intelligence green-screen crew, Michael?

Webmaster addition: D-

I do not think a green screen was used, but it appears there were multiple passes with fewer "ISIS" and "Victims" that were split-screened together to make it look like there were more people. One thing I know for certain is the blood in the ocean water is fake. Real blood in the ocean looks black and washes away instantly. To get the blood used in the Jaws movies, they used a mixture of bright orange tempera paint and Karo Syrup, to counter the water color and to hold the "blood" together. The volume of blood seen in this video would have required totally draining all the "victims" AND the "ISIS" (and most of the production crew as well). :)

Donald Trump is about to do terrible things to Marco Rubio

As bullies go, Donald Trump is unusually skilled.

When Trump decides to go after you, he considers carefully both your weak points and the audience for his attack. So when he decided to pummel Jeb Bush —
***
Until now, Trump has been relatively soft on Rubio. But with the increasing possibility that Rubio could be the greatest threat to Trump winning the nomination, he's almost certain to go after him. If the past is any guide, Trump will throw a bunch of different attacks Rubio's way until he happens upon one that seems to resonate; then he'll stick with it as long as it works. Trump is already dabbling in Rubio birtherism (though he doesn't seem quite committed to it), but eventually he'll find a line of personal criticism with just the right note of cruelty and derision.

Rubio already seems spooked. >>>

“Dirty Players in Geopolitics”: Letter to “Doctors Without Borders” (MSF)

Dear MSF,

A monthly donor of many years, I feel an explanation is in order for my cancellation and further refusal to participate as a MSF “Field Partner.” I am a former military special operations intelligence professional and anti-corruption investigator of many years. Based on my expertise in open source intelligence analysis and closely following several of the ongoing conflicts, including Ukraine and SYRIA, it has become clear MSF is becoming a tool for geopolitical ends. Either you’ve been penetrated by intelligence agencies for this purpose of promoting false flag information operations or your organization is being manipulated to same effect. I cannot, with clear conscious, be a party to this with further contributions.

The several NATO intelligence agencies are in full force pursuing anti-Russian propaganda operations, which likely include the recent attacks on MSF aligned Syrian clinics; purposeful and professional operations intended to smear Russia and President Putin for purposes of generating political capital for pursuit of geopolitical manipulations. Your organization immediately pointing the finger at Assad and/or the Russians, without time taken to properly investigate, is unethical.

Alan Hart explains why politicians are running scared on BDS against Israel - nuclear blackmail by Israel

The conclusion I draw from everything I have learned from nearly half a century of engagement in various capacities with the conflict in and over Palestine that became Israel is that there are two main reasons for the refusal of the major Western powers to confront Zionism in order to provide the Palestinians with an acceptable amount of justice.

One is the influence (declining a little but still awesome) that the Zionist lobby in all of its manifestations has in the corridors of power together with unlimited funds to buy politicians.

The other is fear that if pushed further than they were prepared to go, Israel’s leaders would press a nuclear button or two and more if needed.

This fear is no doubt reinforced in the minds of those Western leaders who are aware of what Prime Minister Golda Meir once said to me in an interview for the BBC’s Panorama programme. As readers of my book and one or two of my blog posts over the years know, she said that in a doomsday situation “Israel would be prepared to take the region and the whole world down with it.”

The FBI’s Criminal Investigations regarding Hillary Clinton. Two Smoking Guns: Espionage and Corruption

Also this past weekend, my Fox News colleagues Katherine Herridge and Pamela Browne learned from government sources that the FBI is investigating whether Clinton made any decisions as secretary of state to benefit her family foundation or her husband’s speaking engagements. If so, this would be profound public corruption.

This investigation was probably provoked by several teams of independent researchers – some of whom are financial experts and have published their work – who have been investigating the Clinton Foundation for a few years. They have amassed a treasure-trove of documents demonstrating fraud and irregularities in fundraising and expenditures, and they have shown a pattern of favorable State Department treatment of foreign entities coinciding with donations by those entities to the Clinton Foundation and their engaging former President Bill Clinton to give speeches.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It all sounds good, but remember that the FBI's past history is as a protector of the Clintons, going back to at least the murder of White House Deputy Counsel Vincent Foster, which was made to look like a suicide and anyone who asked difficult questions (such as yours truly) had their careers and lives ruined. So much for "see something, say something!"

I would love to be pleasantly surprised, but I know what the FBI really is; it's the goon squad for the White House and if you read the history of COINTELPRO you will understand what I mean.

There is an ironclad case to arrest Hillary for her felony violation of 18 USC 793. That is hasn't happened yet tells me that the Clinton Crime Family are indeed above the law!

Why Did 'The Daily Beast' (Newsweek) Contact Me For An Interview About Trump & 9/11 Then Not Publish It? (Hint: Israelis)

The Daily Beast, formerly part of Newsweek, contacted me several times last week requesting an interview regarding my confrontation with Donald Trump (when I asked him about the five Dancing Israelis arrested in New Jersey on 9/11/2001.) They also asked if I was Trump supporter and what I made of his recent comments on 9/11. After contacting me four separate times over two days, and getting my replies about 9/11 and Israel's involvement, The Daily Beast conveniently and mysteriously opted not to publish the interview, so I will post it myself.

Originally, Britain signed up to the European Economic Community or EEC via a referendum in 1975 for the purposes of enhancing trade, it was in essence a trade deal, or at least that was how it was sold to the British people. What the unsuspecting people of Britain were not aware of was that in reality the origins of the EU was devised by the USA back in the 1950’s that saw the continent more as an opportunity of a puppet run super-state filled with attendant yes-men for trade and the manipulation of strategic global markets and, just as importantly a defensive buffer zone against it’s new foe – the Reds from Russia. Think TTIP, Ukraine and an ever expanding NATO alliance.

Americans Mindless About the Grave Dangers They Face

Never before in history has the danger of possible humanity destroying nuclear war been greater. Fundamental rights Americans think they have don’t exist.

They’re deplorably out-of-touch, the most over-entertained, uninformed people anywhere, controlled by neocon infested bipartisan governance, lunatics threatening their welfare, security and world peace.

Public ignorance is shocking, why America gets away with high crimes at home and abroad. Lawless interventionism is longstanding policy.

Endless US wars on humanity rage. Human and civil rights are fast eroding en route toward disappearing altogether. Police state injustice rules, tyranny by any standard, heading toward becoming full-blown.

PCR: The Evil Empire Has The World In A Death Grip

Paul Craig Roberts blogs on the recent release of an updated version of the book "Confessions of an Economic Hit Man" by the former "hit man" John Perkins.

PCR:
Perkins shows that despite his revelations, the situation is worse than ever and has spread into the West itself. The populations of Ireland, Greece, Portugal, Spain, Italy, and the United States itself are now being looted by Hit Man activity.

Perkins’ book shows that the US is “exceptional” only in the unbridled violence it applies to others who get in its way. One of the new chapters tells the story of France-Albert Rene, president of Seychelles, who threatened to reveal the illegal and inhumane eviction of the residents of Diego Garcia by Britain and Washington so that the island could be converted into an air base from which Washington could bomb noncompliant countries in the Middle East, Asia, and Africa. Washington sent in a team of jackels to murder the president of Seychelles, but the assassins were foiled. All but one were captured, tried and sentenced to execution or prison, but a multi-million dollar bribe to Rene freed them. Rene got the message and became compliant.

When Donald Trump pointed the finger at Jeb Bush at the last debate and claimed he’s got nothing to show for the millions his campaign has spent, he wasn’t kidding.

flashback March 20, 2015; Senator Marco Rubio – Israel First, America Last

On March 19, 2015, Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fla) gave a speech which promoted Israel. He spoke more like a paid Israeli lobbyist than a US Senator.

Who exactly is Senator Rubio working for, America or Israel? And where does his loyalty lie?

Not only was his speech filled with a stunning facade of inaccuracies, and outright lies, it approached sycophancy and boot-licking of Israel and Bibi Netanyahu.

Could it be that Senator Rubio clearly understands who is running America and that in order to advance his political career, he must suck up to them?

>Could it be that he understands that the City of London based Rothschild Khazarian Mafia Banksters established a beachhead in America in 1913, from which they proceeded to infiltrate and hijack our monetary production and distribution system in order to buy control of Congress, and now uses Israel as their main action-agent?

A Panicked China Orders Media To Stick To "Positive Reporting" Or Risk "The Stability Of The Country"

If China's recent record surge in loan creation, and its revision of a key PBOC capital outflow "data" wasn't sufficient proof that the world's second largest economy is on the verge of panic, then the explicit propaganda directive issued to the the local press by China's president Xi Jinping late on Friday should certainly seal it.

As SCMP reports, according to a commentary published by a leading mouthpiece online "having public opinions that are different from the official ones will shake the foundation of the rule of the Communist party and the country."

Xiakedao, a social media account operated by the overseas edition of People’s Daily, said in a commentary on Friday’s high-profile tour by President Xi Jinping to the three largest state media outlets – People’s Daily, Xinhua and Central China Television — "that the party was alarmed by how different public opinion is from official media."

America Is In A Proxy War With Itself In Syria

American proxies are now at war with each other in Syria.
Officials with Syrian rebel battalions that receive covert backing from one arm of the U.S. government told BuzzFeed News that they recently began fighting rival rebels supported by another arm of the U.S. government.
The infighting between American proxies is the latest setback for the Obama administration’s Syria policy and lays bare its contradictions as violence in the country gets worse.
The confusion is playing out on the battlefield — with the U.S. effectively engaged in a proxy war with itself. “It’s very strange, and I cannot understand it,” said Ahmed Othman, the commander of the U.S.-backed rebel battalion Furqa al-Sultan Murad, who said he had come under attack from U.S.-backed Kurdish militants in Aleppo this week.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am having a palm-to-forehead moment, at warp speed, upon reading this.

I think we need to start immediately sending the Pentagon, State Department, White House, and Congress massive shipments of ouija boards; perhaps that might help them come up with something infinitely more coherent with these than whatever they are currently doing.

Torture Is a Crime

The subject of U.S. policies on torture is back in the news again. With far too much frequency, I've been seeing media reports of public figures calling for a return to so-called "enhanced interrogation techniques" or, even worse, using dangerous and ill-informed rhetoric in support of reviving these illegal and immoral tactics.

In my more than 30 years of human rights and humanitarian work, most recently with the Center for Victims of Torture (CVT), I've witnessed too often the near destruction of both the human body and the human spirit as a result of torture, as well as the corrosive effects it has on societies and institutions that permit it. And although appropriate rehabilitative care can help to heal the person, I long for the day when organizations such as CVT are put out of business because torture has been wiped off the face of the Earth.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When the US government tortures, or outsources torture, it tells the world that it doesn't care about human rights, democracy, or the rule of law.

And when the US government tortures, or outsources torture, it gives rulers in other countries carte blanche to do the same to American civilians or military personnel.

Cornel West: ‘Sister Hillary Clinton is the Milli Vanilli of American politics’

Philosopher and Bernie Sanders surrogate Cornel West told CNN’s Chris Cuomo that Hillary Clinton was like the disgraced band Milli Vanilli because she only gave “lip service” to social justice policies.

During a Monday interview on CNN’s New Day, West praised Sanders for supporting Jesse Jackson’s 1988 presidential bid, but he wasn’t as impressed with Clinton’s political pedigree.

“Sister Hillary Clinton is the Milli Vanilli of American politics,” West charged. “She lip-syncs, she gives lip service. But when it comes to policy, who supported the crime bill? Who supported, not just the deregulating of banks, but also pulled the rug from under welfare?”

West also pointed out that “corporate media” have not taken Sanders’ campaign seriously.

“We know Donald Trump is a Frankenstein of corporate media,” he explained. “They cover every Twitter [message], they cover every speech, every word. If Bernie had that kind of coverage, people would know who he is.”

DEA AGENT BUSTED FOR SELLING SEIZED NARCOTICS – “COMMITS SUICIDE” WHILE IN POLICE CUSTODY

Officer Tye Downard was arrested while on duty last week by federal agents investigating him for theft and sale of drugs. On Monday, police reported that he died in their custody.

Downard, a 20-year veteran of the Reynoldsburg Police department, was also a member of the DEA Task Force and SWAT team whose job it was to raid the homes of suspected drug dealers.

According to the US Attorney’s office, Downard was allegedly caught making over 20 different sales of narcotics in just the last five months — including heroin, cocaine, marijuana and Percocet pills.

During the investigation, according to the complaint, Downard was captured on recorded audio, recorded telephone calls, surveillance cameras, and the seizure of drugs sold to their undercover source.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I will believe the statement about him having "committed suicide" when pigs fly!

This alleged US government "war on drugs" is only a war on the drugs the government cannot control or sell.

A number of years ago, the country of Portugal did a very revolutionary thing, with its drug control policy. It decriminalized having small amounts of drugs for personal use, but at the same time, encouraged counseling to help get people off the drugs.

And guess what?!? It worked brilliantly!

But of course, this...was logical.

And unfortunately, as happened with Prohibition, if you criminalize something, there are vast amounts of money to be made from its fabrication as sale.

FORTUNE MAGAZINE NAMES MONSANTO ONE OF THE “WORLD’S MOST ADMIRED COMPANIES”

In a list released this week by Fortune Magazine, Monsanto was named one of the world’s most admired companies. Monsanto was honored as No. 1 in its industry sector, biotechnology, although they have very little competition in that market, and the list was decided by dubious means.

According to Business Wire, the honor that Monsanto received was decided by company surveys and peer ratings from senior executives, directors and analysts, in other words, it was based on the opinions of people within the industry, and within the company.

Monsanto Chairman and CEO, Hugh Grant, said in a statement that this is the third year that they were named as the top of their sector by Fortune.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is proof positive that no matter how morally repellant a company may be, and no matter the wreckage of human and plant health it leaves behind, if it makes money, it is REVERED by the rest of the money junkies!

Microsoft 'loves' Linux? Then stop attacking open source

Cui Bono re:Linux Mint Hack!

According to Satya Nadella, Microsoft loves Linux. He said as much, complete with pictures -- and his team backs him up. In itself, it's a remarkable statement.

Nadella's predecessor, Steve Ballmer, described open source in the darkest terms, characterizing it (with the GNU GPL) as a commercial cancer and never retracting the slur. In many ways, that dark prophecy has come true for Microsoft, which has seen its rent-seeking business model steadily eroded by open source. Though it still has a cash cow to milk, Microsoft's monopolies no longer frighten anyone.

Whore of Babylon shreds Constitution, exposed as ultimate backer of massive U.S. land grab

As it turns out there’s a lot more to the story behind the Malheur Wildlife Refuge–a whole lot more–and this article is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg.

As you may or may not know, Intellihub reported on Jan. 4, that the Hammond’s ranch and other ranch-lands surrounding the refuge sit atop a vast swath of precious metals, minerals, and uranium that’s heavily desired by not only the federal government, but foreign entities as well.

Syrian Hospital Strikes & the Unexpected War Criminals

Accusations and denials continue to be traded between the West’s NGO, Doctors Without Borders or officially Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), and the Russian and Syrian government. Despite the gravity of the accusations by the West and MSF, which suggest “deliberate” and egregious war crimes, they have thus far produced no evidence. Not only have they produced no evidence, they openly admit that so far, they have none.

Cameron Unleashes 'Project Fear' - UK Military Leaders Warn Against Brexit Threat To National Security

Just as the government did in the lead up to The Scottish Referendum in 2014, it appears David Cameron is already unleashing resorting to the so-called Project Fear. As The Telegraph reports, following Boris Johnson's lack of acquiescence to Cameron's call for no Brexit, more than a dozen of the country's most senior military leaders will argue that Britain should vote to stay in the European Union because of its importance to national security.

The 1980 coup that put Reagan/Bush in power

Ronald Reagan was put into the White House with a crime.

Via back channels, elements of the Bush crime organization promised Iran weapons if it promised to keep the US embassy hostages in captivity until Reagan was elected and in office.

Just like clockwork, at the very moment Jimmy Carter was leaving the White House, he hostages were released.

"Mission accomplished" for the bad guys.

Barbara Honegger, one of the greatest researchers of our era, tells the story.

Britain lobbied UN to whitewash Bahrain police abuses

Britain has been accused of waging a behind-the-scenes PR offensive aimed at neutering United Nations criticism of Bahrain for its human rights record, including the alleged use of torture by its security forces.

Documents shared with the Observer reveal that the UN’s criticism of the Gulf state was substantially watered down after lobbying by the UK and Saudi Arabia, a major purchaser of British-made weapons and military hardware.

The result was a victory for Bahrain and for Saudi Arabia, which sent its troops to quell dissent in the tiny kingdom during the Arab spring.

The Aliso Canyon gas leak has been plugged; now what?

***
By Pavley's account, two-thirds of Porter Ranch residents near the storage facility favor closing the operation for good.

But that suggestion has prompted a great deal of hand-wringing.>>>

Shutting down Aliso Canyon could end that potential revenue stream.
***
Who pays for the improvements?

Californians already are footing the bills for other utility mishaps.>>>
***
Sherman said he believes shareholders of Sempra Energy, the parent company of Southern California Gas, should pay for costs created by the leak. And he said utilities must be prevented from relying so heavily on a few huge facilities, as Southern California Gas did with Aliso Canyon.

"Too big to fail," Sherman said, "is too big to exist."

Pound pummelled on Brexit fears

Sterling is heading for its biggest single-session loss since October 2009 after London mayor Boris Johnson threw his weight behind the campaign for Britain to exit the EU.

Pressure on the pound intensified in morning trading on Monday, leaving it down by as much as 1.8 per cent to a session low of $1.4152 — its lowest level in three weeks. The euro rose 1.2 per cent against the pound to £0.7828.

“Any closes below $1.42 [against the dollar] or above £0.7850 [for the euro] would open the way to further weakness for sterling,” warned Kit Juckes at Société Générale.

“Overall, I think we are likely to see further sterling weakness ahead of the vote itself >>>

Turkey's Ankara False Flag Blaming Syrian Kurds Clears Pathway to Turkish-Saudi Gulf State Invasion of Syria and WWIII

By Joachim Hagopian
February 22, 2016

Turkey’s been blasting away all month long shelling heavy artillery mortars from its side along the Turkish border killing Syrian National Army soldiers, Syrian Kurd forces (YPG), at least, one Russian advisor and defenseless civilians in border villages inside Syria. Widespread reportage of the ongoing daily Turkish artillery barrage into Syria was publicly confirmed by the Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davuto?lu since February 13th. Though a NATO member, longtime close US ally and next to Empire and Israel among the world’s leading partners-in-crime for state-sponsored terrorism, earlier this week Turkey was asked by Washington to cease its border aggression. Yet Turkish President Recep Erdogan has elected to defy his US master and continues his daily bombardment of northern Syrian villages and Syrian militarily controlled outposts abandoned recently by decimated escaping Islamic State terrorists.

BLM visits Mizzou, says supporting Constitution is white supremacist

During an event at Thursday evening #BlackLivesMatter founders Alicia Garza and Opal Tometi told Mizzou students that the goal of the Constitution was to make an agreement between factions known as states, which were built on the backs of black slaves. Garza and Tometi told students at the University of Missouri that the Black Lives Matter movement arose after what they called, “the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the murder of Trayvon Martin.”

Western weapons and equipment flow freely between the so-called “moderate” rebels in Syria and their close allies from extremist groups like al-Qaida, according to an investigation from a BBC reporter.

In a Dec. 17 episode of the BBC Radio series “The Report,” investigative journalist Peter Oborne documented disturbing evidence that the United Kingdom and United States continue to support the the Syrian opposition, particularly the Free Syrian Army, despite ample evidence that they work closely with extremist groups NATO has traditionally thought of as enemies.

American Journalist: The War in Syria Will Become a Shameful Page in the History of the U.S Media

American journalists, following the official line of the administration of U.S. President Barack Obama, present the head of Syria, Bashar al-Assad, and also Russia and Iran as villains. They support, according to U.S. media, Saudi Arabia and Turkey. This position, which is due to the deliberate distortion of what is actually happening in Syria, will lead to the prolonging of the war and an even greater number of civilian casualties, writes the journalist of the newspaper the Boston Globe - Stephen Kinzer. According to him, coverage of the conflict in Syria will be one of the most shameful pages in the history of the media of the United States. "This is nonsense, but do not blame the Americans for believing it. We do not have any information about the parties to the conflict, their goals or methods of action. The blame belongs to the American media," — emphasizes Kinser on the pages of the Boston Globe.

The Empire Doesn’t Retreat or Compromise

Reading mainstream media news, analyses, and opinion pieces about this war is completely useless, as everything is either uninformed and clueless gibberish or propaganda and deception.

I wrote this text over several days and every time I sat down again to continue there came another headline to my mind. The first headline was “Nobody said, that it will be easy,” the second “Waiting for the Turkey-Russia showdown,” the third “Playing the terrorism game,” the fourth “Everything is better than war.”

In the end I settled for the header “The empire doesn’t retreat or compromise.”

This statement stands the test of time, it has been proven throughout human history, and there is only one single exemption, only one short period where retreat and compromise are a possibility. This short period is the time when the empire is in terminal decline and in the process of collapsing.

Clinton’s Campaign Just Got Busted Impersonating Union Nurses in Nevada

Hillary Clinton’s campaign is attempting to trick Bernie Sanders supporters in Nevada into voting for Clinton by disguising themselves as nurses affiliated with the National Nurses United union (NNU), which has thrown its support behind Sanders.

NNU executive director RoseAnn DeMoro caught Clinton staffers red-handed changing from blue Hillary Clinton campaign shirts into red shirts of the same shade as the red shirts NNU members are wearing, in an apparent attempt to confuse voters.

This is just the latest in a series of questionable tactics the Hillary Clinton campaign has engaged in during the week leading up to the Nevada caucus.

Corbyn wins 18 elections by a landslide, the media’s silence is deafening

Jeremy Corbyn was given a decisive mandate from Labour’s youth wing in party elections on Thursday. On regional boards and Young Labour’s national committee, 18 seats were up for grabs and Corbyn supporters won every one.

This is a sweeping success for the Labour leader, and for Momentum – the grassroots organisation set up following Corbyn’s leadership win. It could be a sign of things to come at next weeks annual conference for the party’s youth wing, where pivotal roles, of the chair and National Executive Committee representative, will be decided.

But this landslide victory has barely been reported in the media. Highly influential institutions like the BBC consider non-events, such as Russian planes flying close to UK airspace, worthy of top story attention. But when it comes to developments that could have a huge impact on our democracy, such as who people want to lead the country, they simply pass on by.
