LA’s response to homeless encampments ‘isn’t working,’ councilman says

Amid rising homelessness and mounting outcry from residents and business owners, a Los Angeles city councilman said Wednesday he wants to take a hard look at the way the city responds to the increasing presence of encampments and recreational vehicles.

“What we have isn’t working,” Councilman Mitchell Englander said.

In recent months, the issue of homelessness has become inescapable, with residents encountering more homelessness in their neighborhoods, according to the councilman, who represents the northwest San Fernando Valley.

“There’s not a conversation I have — whether it’s fixing a street, trimming a tree, walking to school or going to a grocery store — where we don’t talk about homelessness,” he said.

Out of Los Angeles City Councilman Joe Buscaino’s office: “Ditto,” said spokesman Branimir Kvartuc.

“We’re very, very conscious of it,” Kvartuc said. “It’s a battle every day.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a horrific image of America, going out to the world, that we do not have the means, or willingness, to deal with the problem.

I cannot imagine anyone saying to themselves, "Oh, I just want to be so financially stressed, after losing my job and my residence, because I couldn't pay the rent, that I sincerely want to homeless now."

I am no bleeding heart; I was very lucky to come from a family with true work ethics, and have learned to make what I'm good at into a profession.

Newsletter on UCCS: 'Veterans should be banned from four-year universities'

The university explained while this group is not affiliated with the college, they say it is free speech and the group can post what they want.

The article says veterans should be banned from UCCS and other four-year colleges. It also generalizes veterans and says they are unsympathetic to the LGBTQ community. The article says all veterans have far right-wing ideologies.

"They [the authors of the letter] try and talk about inclusion as a principle," said UCCS student Joe Hollmann. "Yet, they're excluding one of the most important members of society, those that are guarding our freedom to even talk about this."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

ARE YOU FLIPPING KIDDING ME?!?

This is just one of the most misconceived concepts in a long history of misconceived concepts; to deny an education to Veterans because of some assessment, created by magical thinking, they are all right wingers, so have no right to an education at this school?!?

Where is the logic, here?!? Has anyone actually come up with a standards and means test to determine what former military think, to make that determination?!? And please, aren't we all Americans, even if we think differently about political issues?!? And that to me, coupled with the First Amendment restrictions and educational restrictions someone at this school, or may have attended this school, want to force on their community.

NAFTA Is 23 Years Old – Here Are 20 Facts That Show How It Is Destroying The Economy

Back in the early 1990s, the North American Free Trade Agreement was one of the hottest political issues in the country. When he was running for president in 1992, Bill Clinton promised that NAFTA would result in an increase in the number of high quality jobs for Americans that it would reduce illegal immigration. Ross Perot warned that just the opposite would happen. He warned that if NAFTA was implemented there would be a “giant sucking sound” as thousands of businesses and millions of jobs left this country. Most Americans chose to believe Bill Clinton. Well, it is 20 years later and it turns out that Perot was right and Clinton was dead wrong. But now history is repeating itself, and most Americans don’t even realize that it is happening. As you will read about at the end of this article, Barack Obama has been negotiating a secret trade treaty that is being called “NAFTA on steroids”, and if Congress adopts it we could lose millions more good paying jobs.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Any trade deals which do not better the situation of workers in the US makes them worse for the American worker, and consequently, should not be ratified by the US Senate.

But we know what will happen here; corporations who support these alleged congressional representatives, will be come "The Congressional Whisperers", and insure that trade deals which compromise the American people, financially, will ultimately be ratified, because those deals support their corporations, no matter how horrific they may well be for We the People.

US Military Bio-labs in Ukraine, Production of Bio-weapons and “Disease Causing Agents”

Ukraine turned into the proving ground for the new generation of US biological weapons, European mass media report.

In 2015, American alternative media outlet InfoWars accused the Pentagon of developing new types of biological weapons in secret military laboratories in Ukraine. The facilities were constructed under the terms of the bilateral agreement signed between the Ministry of Health of Ukraine and the Department of Defense in 2012.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Just lovely; why are they not putting energy and effort into curing people, rather than killing them?!?

I have to wonder against whom these weapons are to be used; and that makes me very nervous.

Whistleblower Lawsuit Charges Illegal Retaliation, Dangerous Practices at CIA’s Elite Directorate of Operations

The Pars lawsuit claims that, in 2015, the CIA’s Chief of Base at a US military facility routinely required subordinates to risk their lives by passing through an area of hostile fire without any operational need to do so. The Chief of Base who did this, the lawsuit says, was an officer with “limited to no” previous experience operating in a conflict zone.

For reporting the misconduct to his superiors, the lawsuit says Pars was sent home in an act of unlawful retaliation, directed by the Chief of Station, the highest-ranking CIA official in the unnamed country which, given details in the complaint, appears to be Afghanistan. Since the alleged reprisal more than two years ago, the lawsuit says Pars, his career in shambles, has made dozens of unsuccessful attempts to get a new assignment. Meanwhile, there is no public record of any accountability for the Chief of Station or other CIA officials allegedly involved.

The CIA declined to comment.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is obviously completely insane, and should have been stopped by this lady's superiors; that fact that they didn't, yet set upon Pars, to "murder the messenger", rather than fix the problem.

This is an institutional problem for many American alphabet soup agencies, and needs to be fixed.

NEW BILL WOULD FORCE ARRESTED PROTESTERS TO PAY POLICE OVERTIME, OTHER FEES

A NEW BILL INTRODUCED by seven Pennsylvania Republican state lawmakers could force protesters arrested at demonstrations to pay for police overtime and other fees related to the action.

The bill, SB 754, has been introduced by Rep. Scott Martin of Lancaster County; his district has been the site of anti-pipeline protests aimed at the Atlantic Sunrise natural gas pipeline.

Under the terms of the bill, “a person is responsible for public safety response costs incurred by a State agency or political subdivision as a result of the State agency’s or political subdivision’s response to a demonstration if, in connection with the demonstration, the person is convicted of a felony or misdemeanor offense.”

In other words, they could be on the hook for costs, such as police overtime, medical or emergency response, or other basic public services associated with protests. Whatever felony or misdemeanor offense the protester was convicted of would come with its own independent penalty.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This will have an horrifically chilling free speech, protected by the Bill of Rights and Constitution, and would also have a chilling effect on peaceful protestors who just want to make their voices heard, creating no violence whatsoever, which is probably precisely the design intention of the author of this bill.

It very much reminds me of the brilliantly dystopian quote from Orwell's 2984: “The past was erased, the erasure was forgotten, the lie became the truth.”

IF this kind of behaviour is asserted at the State and Federal levels, we will reach a point in this country, where the Constitution and Bill of Rights will be thoroughly eviscerated, and no longer exist as protections against a government which does not serve We the People, but only serves Those the Corporations; we have become irrelevant to our alleged representatives in State and Federal Government.

To those with skills and kids, get the hell out of this country right now; it is morphing into a dictatorship will all the techno bells and whistles to guarantee that you are thoroughly surveilled, 24/7, and you won't understand the ramifications of that surveillance until it is far too late.

Big Brother Wants Warrantless Access to Your Smartphone

Imagine you’re a journalist, meeting with a secret government source. Thanks to the information provided by this source, you break an astronomically important story of government fraud or abuse. After the story breaks, the government decides it wants to go back and look at your cell phone’s historic geolocation information and metadata, tracking your every move and jeopardizing your source. Current Supreme Court precedent and a decision by the U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals allow government to collect this type of metadata without a warrant.

That’s why a group of 20 media organizations has filed an amicus brief with the Supreme Court, urging the justices to overturn the lower court’s order, and require law enforcement to obtain a warrant before collecting archived cell phone location data and metadata. The brief is signed by media nonprofits such as the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press, and media publishers like First Look Media, publisher of The Intercept.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I'm about to ditch my eye phone for a couple of strings and a tin can!!

Mattis: US Actively Considering Arming Ukraine

On a visit to Ukraine today, Defense Secretary James Mattis played up the narrative that the ongoing fighting in Eastern Ukraine was wholly Russia’s fault, vowing that the US “stands with Ukraine” against the Russians, and confirming active considerations are ongoing to providing lethal military aid to them.

Ukraine’s President Poroshenko claimed 3,000 Russian troops are in Ukrainian territory, a claim which appears to be built around the assumption that Crimea, which seceded from Ukraine and joined the Russian Federation, is still technically Ukrainian.

Still Mattis appeared to accept the number unquestioningly, accusing Russia of trying to “redraw” the map of Europe by military force, and vowing that the US would stand against them. Though he stopped short of promising arms to Ukraine, he gave the impression they were probably coming.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sec General Mattis, a word, please: these alleged "defensive weapons" will most probably not be used in this context. Rather, the Ukrainian military will likely use them in an offensive manner against independent, pro-russian bastions in the Southern and Western parts of the country, which could well erupt into all out war in the region, pitting the US against Russia over Ukraine.

And I sincerely hope you have thought all possible scenarios through, completely, to their logical conclusion before you make this move.

Children among dead in latest attack on Yemen civilians

At least five children were among 14 people killed in an air raid in a residential neighbourhood of Yemen's capital Sanaa, the second day of mass civilian deaths in the war-torn country.

The attack destroyed two buildings on Friday in the southern district of Faj Attan, leaving people buried under debris.

Mohammed Ahmad, who lived in one of the buildings, said he was among residents who had taken nine bodies to a hospital.

"We extracted them one by one from under the rubble," he said. "Some of them were children from a single family."

READ MORE: Saudi Arabia's war in Yemen 'a strategic failure'

"When the rocket hit, one of the buildings was immediately destroyed which caused the building next door to collapse too. Some residents got out, but others were trapped."

The death toll was feared to rise further as rescuers pull more victims from the rubble.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How completely sanitised is that last statement; as though the horrific carnage achieved by this strike never happened, as though children weren't blown apart from their mothers' arms; as though the medically fragile elderly were not blown to smithereens.

The blood lust of the Saudi Government and Royal House of Saud against Yemen knows no boundaries.

And yet, President Trump, his Cabinet, and the Pentagon feel perfectly at home in colluding with these people, enabling these strikes which assassinate the innocent.

Iran Ready to Support Saudi Arabia in Improving Bilateral Ties

Iranian Foreign Minister claimed that his country is willing to support Saudi Arabia's move to improve bilateral relations.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Iran is ready to improve bilateral relation with Saudi Arabia whenever the latter expresses a similar interest, Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif said Thursday.

“If the Saudi authorities take steps to improve their relations with us, Iran will certainly respond in a positive manner,” Zarif was quoted as saying by the Anadolu news agency.

Can’t We Get Along? Saudis Ask Iraq to Help Resolve Rivalry with Iran
The two states are expected to begin a series of diplomatic contacts next month, the news outlet reported. T

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: IF these reports are true, and I am reading the tea-leaves correctly, should Saudi Arabia deepen its relations with Tehran, the US will not have its proxy army in Saudi Arabia to fight a war against Iran.

The only country in the region with a leadership which will be collectively excreting bricks with be that of Israel; I am almost willing to bet Netenyahu is at this moment in time, developing several false flag scenarios to blame on Iran and/or Saudi Arabia, with the intentionally of destroying the fledgling trust and rapprochment between these countries.

U.S. SENATE WANTS TO LABEL WIKILEAKS A “NON-STATE HOSTILE INTELLIGENCE SERVICE”

“It is the sense of Congress that WikiLeaks and the senior leadership of WikiLeaks resemble a non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors and should be treated as such a service by the United States,” a section of the Act reads.

The Act almost unanimously passed a Senate panel last month 14-1, rejected by only one man, Sen. Ron Wyden, an Oregon Democrat who staunchly opposed the measure due to the provision that was snuck in about WikiLeaks.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Attorney General Jeff Sessions previously said in April that the arrest of WikiLeaks’ publisher Julian Assange was a “priority” for the DOJ."

Why, please sir?!? Do you any possible clue, or the slight comprehension, of what this kind of petty, impotent language helps makes the Unhinged, Surveilled States of Amerika, look to the rest of the world?!?

To the best of my understanding, the guy has an enviable track record for getting the truth out there, and I find that commendable; you and your buddies in the Senate, however, want him arrested because he has embarrassed the American government by telling American citizens, and the world, the truth about your, and our Government's, activities you didn't want us to have.

D.C. judge approves government warrant for data from anti-Trump website

The Justice Department last week proposed amending the scope of its warrant to exclude the IP addresses of website visitors and limit the search only to records from July 1, 2016, to the Jan. 20 Inauguration Day.

But DreamHost said the warrant was still too broad, as it could sweep in people who sent emails to disruptj20 addresses. The company objected to the two-step process that would require it to turn over data in bulk and let prosecutors search for and seize evidence of criminal involvement in the riots.

Morin said at a hearing on Thursday that he recognised the tension between free speech rights and law enforcement's need to search digital records for evidence. He said he added safeguards to his order granting the government's request for information in an effort to balance those two concerns.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Morin knows the drill in DC: "Plata o Plomo";silver... or lead.

How that gets defined in the bowels of DC, is as: you help me get out this scrape, and you will be rewarded; but if you do not, please accept the reality that we will terminate you... with extreme prejudice.

And Morin, to no great shock, was a Clinton appointee, so he may well be better acquainted with where the bodies are buried, than other of his colleagues.


Morin was appointed judge in 1996 by President Clinton and previously served as presiding judge of the court’s criminal division, where he helped oversee management of calendars for judges who handle criminal cases. He also has worked representing death-penalty clients at the Southern Center for Human Rights in Atlanta and with the Maryland Office of the Public Defender.

I wonder just what, instead of ratcheting down the parameters of his investigation so severely, he would have found if he had been led to connections with some very powerful people, who have utterly no sense of fair play or morality?!?

That's why he got this case; to tighten the screws and button down any attempt to really find where the money went, or implicate any of the DNC in his investigation of these protests.

CONGRESS QUIETLY PASSED A BILL ALLOWING WARRANTLESS SEARCHES OF HOMES—ONLY 1% OPPOSED IT

The proposal for a safety commission to act as a wing of the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority may sound logical, when its power includes thing such as the ability to “Adopt, revise, and distribute a written State Safety Oversight Program” and to “Review, approve, oversee, and enforce the adoption and implementation of WMATA’s Public Transportation Agency Safety Plan.”

However, there is one major red flag buried within the text of the bill that stems from the list of “powers” given to the Washington Metrorail Safety Commission, and it violates one of the basic tenants of the U.S. Constitution.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is absolutely just as suspicious as it appears to be, and I hope that this law is, ultimately, repealed in a Supreme Court case.

US TAXPAYERS SPENT $50 MILLION FOR LUXURY CARS, GUNS, & BOOZE TO MENTOR AFGHAN INTEL OFFICERS

A foreign company hired by the U.S. government to mentor and train Afghan intelligence officers billed Uncle Sam for more than $50 million in luxury cars - including Porsches, an Aston Martin, and a Bentley - and the lucrative salaries of executives and their spouses (who didn’t do any work). The firm also spent $1,500 on alcohol and $42,000 on automatic weapons prohibited under the terms of the contract, according to figures provided by a U.S. Senator from a federal audit that has not been released to the public.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And I would almost be willing to wager a penny ...that this report will never be released to the General Public.

And this, when homeless American Vets sleep rough in our alleys, and are unable to get treatment from the VA?!?

This spending in Afghanistan, demonstrates, once again, that average US citizens are irrelevant to those in the bowels of power in DC, and the government is only answerable to the monied corporate class, interested in controlling Afghanistan's pipelines; harvest its minerals; and keeping the burgeoning opium trade here going.

And trust me, in this next "surge" in Afghanistan; it won't be the men and women from the monied class who will die, or get maimed for life, serving this country's economic interests.

I predict a 'RIOT' as dissent in American media becomes illegitimate

The portal purports to use “600 Twitter accounts linked to Russian influence efforts online” to prove how Moscow is trying to sow seeds of doubt in the Western political system, via the social network. However, the creators won’t reveal the users concerned, and results seem to suggest they are mostly members of the US alt-right and alt-left. Meaning this is yet another attempt to pass off American dissent as some Kremlin “Psy-op.” Which is beyond ridiculous.

Gold Fever: Bild Issues 'Semi-Fake News' on Return of Precious Ingots to Germany

The newspaper Bild has deliberately misled the public by publishing fake news about the early return of Germany's gold reserves, finance expert Peter Boehringer told Sputnik.

Boehringer, who is also a Germany gold repatriation activist, referred to Bild's article titled "The gold is finally in Germany. Bundesbank brings German gold reserves from abroad three years earlier than planned."

He said that "this is semi-fake news" as only fifty percent of Germany's gold reserves were returned. Given the sluggish schedule Bundesbank has set itself, this is hard to label a success, according to him.

HERE'S HOW MANY AMERICANS ARE LIVING PAYCHECK TO PAYCHECK (HINT: IT'S A LOT)

Is your family forced to count down the days each month until the next paycheck arrives? If so, you're part of a staggering, and growing, majority of households in America, the richest country on the planet, that is forced to do the same.

According to a new poll conducted by Harris Poll on behalf of CareerBuilder, over three-quarters of American households are forced to live paycheck to paycheck to make ends meet.

The survey highlights a troubling trend in household finances: More than eight years since the end of the recession, the share of Americans who are living on the financial edge is growing, said Mike Erwin, a spokesman for CareerBuilder. While some may want to blame Americans' spendthrift ways, Erwin pointed to two trends that continue to put financial stress on households: stagnant wages and the rising cost of everything from education to many consumer goods.

OUTRAGE BUILDS OVER GRADE-MANIPULATION SCANDAL IN BALTIMORE SCHOOL SYSTEM

Earlier this month, ‘Project Baltimore’, an investigative reporting initiative, which was launched in March 2017, by Sinclair Broadcast Group Inc. uncovered a Baltimore City school with zero students proficient in math and the highest graduation rate in the area.

The school in focus is Northwood Appold Community Academy II, or NACA II, after teachers contacted Project Baltimore saying grades were being change so students can graduate.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are many, horrific examples of abuse of children; but such abuse, intellectually, is visited on more poor and minority students as their alleged "education" in low income areas.

If any kid is NOT being prepared for achieving intellectually, academically, and in real life goals, this is a travesty against that child's future, and the highest possible outcomes for that child scream drug dealer; gang member; and thoroughly addicted adult. Not pretty. are they?!?

The film "Stand and Deliver", was based on a real-life situation with a teacher in the LA area who refused to take failure on the part of his math class to be the norm. So what he did was prepare them to complete in a state level math challenge, which they won, handily. But the School Boards accused them of cheating, so he went back, prepared them again, and they again won-handily.

And why?!? Because this teacher saw potential and giftedness in these kids where others saw them as complete failures, barely graduating high school, and getting them from high school to either social services, or juvenile hall, which were, in their minds, the only outcome for these kids; and that so absolutely was not true.

One of the things we have to do in this country, if we want to grow as a nation, is that all parents, working in tandem with schools, need to participate in the child's,and the school's, life. Be there for the open houses; make time for the PTA meetings, and look your kid's teacher in the eye, and say, "I'm here to help; what can I do, please, in looking over my kids' shoulder at their homework"?!?

OBAMACARE 'ARCHITECT' SETTLES SUIT OVER FRAUD ALLEGATIONS

Jonathan Gruber, the MIT professor who has been dubbed the architect of Obamacare, has settled a lawsuit accusing him of filing fraudulent claims for government payments.

According to the settlement agreement, Gruber’s allegedly fraudulent claims date back to 2014, when the economics professor was hired by the State of Vermont to conduct research and economic modeling “relating to the implementation of Vermont’s single-payer healthcare system.”

Gruber rose to notoriety in late 2014 when video footage surfaced showing him admitting that the Affordable Care Act was passed under false pretenses, even boasting that “the stupidity of the American voter” made the grand deception possible.

The settlement notes that in two of the submitted invoices, Gruber documented that his “research assistants” worked for 500 hours at a rate of $100 an hour.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

An interesting piece of work President Obama hired, but that's just the point; Gruber's hiring was due strictly to connectedness and party affiliation.

It was certainly not due to his competency or morality (of which he has absolutely none); it was all about how much money he could intensely suckle from the system, until he was found out to be an utter and complete fraud, who knew the Obamacare system would ultimately collapse under its own weight.

RUSSIA UNVEILS ‘INVISIBLE’ SUPERSONIC FIGHTER JETS HARD TO TRACK ON ENEMY RADARS

Officially revealing the fifth generation of Sukhoi-57 supersonic stealth fighter aircraft, Russia has made a statement that it is in the game of stealth warfare. The Sukhoi-57 is designed to compete with the American F-22 Raptor and the Chinese Shenyang J-31 Falcon Hawk, claimed the official statement from the Russian Ministry of Defence.

“T-50 was created for qualitative superiority over predecessors, opponents and competitors,” says MIA’s Alexander Khrolenko. “This is the answer to the US aircraft of the fifth generation F-22 Raptor and F-35 Lightning II.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This fighter jet looks pretty capable; and in the hands of an experienced pilot, capable of doing some great damage.

With the show Russian WMDs put on in Syria, countries around the world are clamoring for these weapons, as opposed to a lot of what US weaponry manufacturers are creating these days.

And those weapons manufacturers in the US have no one but themselves to blame for this turn of economic events against them.

NEXT STOP, RECESSION: THE FINANCIAL METEOR STORM IS HEADED OUR WAY

Business-cycle recessions are not just inevitable, they are necessary to flush bad debt and marginal investments/projects from the system.

The next recession--which I suggested yesterday has just begun--will be more than a business-cycle downturn; it will be a devastating meteor storm that destroys huge chunks of the economy while leaving other sectors virtually untouched.

The dynamic that's about to play out is simple: wages for the bottom 95% have gone nowhere for 17 years, while costs have soared far above official inflation for everyone exposed to real-world costs.

We have filled the widening gap between stagnant household income and rising expenses with debt. This stop-gap works for a while, but eventually the cost of servicing debt consumes the entire budget, leaving little to nothing to save or invest.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Again, please, don't panic; but prepare as well as you are able for the coming financeapocolypse.

There are a couple of things to remember here; first, get your debt load paid down as much as you can, and try not to used credit to get stuff you don't really need. To keep your credit score healthy, keep it at a near-zero balance, then buy something small with your credit card, and pay it off as close to zero as you can. There is an impending hike rate coming from the Fed, so that will affect your credit card interest greatly.

One other thing to understand is your credit score, and its meaning, and that can be done free at places like creditkarma.com. Then, if there is something negative and outstanding, you can work to resolve it, so that your credit score goes up.

A Sinister War On our right to hold cash.

An operation that began as a seemingly obscure academic discussion three years ago is now becoming a full-blown propaganda campaign by some of the most powerful institutions in the industrialized world. This is what rightly should be termed the War on Cash. Like the War on Terror, the War on Cancer or the War on Drugs, its true agenda is sinister and opaque. If we are foolish enough to swallow the propaganda for complete elimination of cash in favor of pure digital bank money, we can pretty much kiss our remaining autonomy and privacy goodbye.

U.S. SENATE WANTS TO LABEL WIKILEAKS A “NON-STATE HOSTILE INTELLIGENCE SERVICE”

The U.S. Senate is considering a bill that would classify WikiLeaks as a “non-state hostile intelligence service” bundled as part of the 2018 Intelligence Authorization Act. Presumably, that classification would authorize the use of force against WikiLeaks. “It is the sense of Congress that WikiLeaks and the senior leadership of WikiLeaks resemble a non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors and should be treated as such a service by the United States,” a section of the Act reads.

NETANYAHU TO PUTIN: IRAN MUST LEAVE SYRIA OR "WE WILL ACT"

For Netanyahu and other Israeli officials the chief concern was never the black clad death cult which filmed itself beheading Americans and burning people alive. "Let the Sunni evil prevail," they say.

Israel is threatening to escalate military action in Syria against perceived Iranian interests. This week Netanyahu declared, "we will act when necessary according to our red lines" while hinting he prefers ISIS presence in Syria as opposed to Iran aligned fighters at his border. This comes as ISIS is now crumbling, and at a time when most world leaders of nations driving the external proxy war in Syria have toned down their rhetoric regarding the future fate of the Assad government.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Prime Minister Netanyahu, where are you hearing the following?!? ""We cannot forget for a single minute that Iran threatens every day to annihilate Israel."

Are the voices in your head getting louder, perhaps, sir?!?

Because in semi-official Iranian blogs such as presstv.com, and farsnews.com, which I read and to which I link pretty much daily, there is not a word about destroying Israel, but some deep, and intelligent, criticisms of how Israel treats the Palestinians, and particularly Palestinian children.

Where, please, do indefinite detentions, and the routine torture of children, to get them to accuse others in their communities of crimes they did not commit,"fit" in the only alleged democracy in the Middle East, which, by the way, still has no constitution, 69 years after it was founded?!?

Just curious, sir.

You could immediately make peace in a win/win situation by flying to Tehran, and developing a relationship with President Rouhani. And the reality here, sir, is that unlike what one sees in anti-Iranian Israeli propaganda, Jews in Iran are thriving.

Don't Tell Mother I'm In Iran

But of course, you won't, because part of the power Israeli politicians hold over their people is the power of fear; that the others in the region are ready to tear the hearts out of Israeli children, when it is generally Israeli settlers who are illegally claiming Palestinian land; encroaching more deeply in East Jerusalem, and the West Bank, and briskly evicting Palestinians whose families have lived on certain spots for multiple generations.

And we all know that you most likely won't be fighting directly against Iranians in Syria; you have the American troops to do do that for you.

American troops will be in Syria for decades

An independent Kurdistan is being established in sections of Iraq and Kurdistan, in order to balkanize those countries, and control their oil, something Israel is encouraging.

And we all know that you would love to regime change Tehran, but only at the costs of American blood and American money.

So please, don't give us this codswallop about "Iranian aggression", when Israeli aggression against its neighbors and the Palestinians have made it the absolute pariah of the entire Middle East.
