DAYS AFTER 9/11 TULSI GABBARD SLAMS "BETRAYAL OF AMERICAN PEOPLE" OVER SYRIA

Considering that Congresswoman Gabbard herself is an Iraq war veteran and current Army reserve officer who served in the aftermath of 9/11, it's all the more power and rare that a sitting Congress member would make such forceful comments exposing the hypocrisy and contradictions of US policy.

She called out President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence by name on the House floor in her speech:

“Two days ago, President Trump and Vice President Pence delivered solemn speeches about the attacks on 9/11, talking about how much they care about the victims of al-Qaeda’s attack on our country. But, they are now standing up to protect the 20,000 to 40,000 al-Qaeda and other jihadist forces in Syria, and threatening Russia, Syria, and Iran, with military force if they dare attack these terrorists."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If Representative Gabbard decides to run for national office, I will support her completely; she is a refreshing kind of honest you rarely see coming out of DC.

Unfortunately, her anti-war stance, as a Veteran, will not win her points with the military/industrial complex, so she most probably doesn't have a chance of a snowball surviving in hell.

But the American people, ALL OF THEM, need to hear what Tulsi has to say about these endless wars, to conquer the world's resources, and to insure that products are only sold in US dollars.

AFTER CUTING ALL UNWRA HUMANITARIAN AID, US TO AWARD ISRAEL WITH $3.3B/YEAR IN MILITARY AID

A massive spending bill, which would deliver $3.3 billion dollars in military aid to Israel over the next year, passed the House on Wednesday under cover of a media blackout. The U.S. Senate had passed a different version of the same bill in early August, a vote that also went largely unreported.

Now, after the House’s passage of a slightly altered version of the Senate’s spending bill, officially titled the “Ileana Ros-Lehtinen United States-Israel Security Assistance Authorization Act of 2018,” all that remains is for the two chambers of Congress to reconcile their versions before the product is sent to President Trump’s desk to be signed into law. According to Skopos Labs, the bill now has a 90 percent chance of being enacted. If enacted, the bill will be the largest aid package in American history.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sheldon Adelson must be high-fiving himself right now, for having purchased a presidency (as he has done with Donald Trump's), and insuring that all of the US foreign policy in the Middle East is 100% dictated by Tel Aviv.

The deep cutting of US aid to Palestinian humanitarian organizations, coupled with this defense bill to greatly benefit both Israel's offensive and defensive posture, are but two demonstrations of who owns DC, when it comes to the Middle East.

The next demonstrations of Israel's having US foreign policy by its gonads, will be a US war against Russia and Syria in Syria, followed an invasion of Iran after that, most probably right around the time of the US mid-term elections.

Understand this; these wars will only result in costs in American blood, and American money; not in Israeli blood or money at all.

And after the mid-terms, look for the potential return of the draft in this country. And do not expect for any of the Trump or Kushner Families to be bothered having to serve; after all, they... are monied families, and monied families always have creative ways to avoid military service, unless it is behind a desk, with zero probability of being killed or maimed for life in these coming wars.

MILITARY INTERVENTION IN VENEZUELA ‘ON THE TABLE,’ SAYS OAS SECRETARY GENERAL

The head of the Organization of American States (OAS), accused by Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro of being a “CIA agent,” says military intervention against Caracas should not be ruled out as a response to the ongoing crisis.
OAS Secretary-General Luis Almagro has hinted that the bloc may consider taking military action in Venezuela if it runs out of diplomatic options in its bid to alleviate the plight of people in the crisis-stricken country.

“With regards to a military intervention aimed at overthrowing the regime of Nicolas Maduro, I think we should not exclude any option,” Almagro said on Friday.

Venezuelans have been fleeing to neighboring countries in droves due to shortages of food and water, as well as soaring inflation and unemployment at home.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Are you flipping kidding me, that OAS Secretary-General Luis Almagro is actually floating the idea of an invasion, occupation, and regime change in Venezuela, to see how it resonates?!?

I would like to hope that the OAS is not pig-headedly stupid as to attempt this; even with Venezuela's current economic woes, I would not bet that the Venezuelan people will "welcome these troops as saviors", throwing roses at their feet.

WHY JOHN BOLTON REALLY HATES THE INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL COURT

Countries with nothing to fear do not fear the ICC.

Countries with nothing to fear do not fear the ICC. The United States and Israel are very afraid of the ICC. The murder of unarmed civilians is a war crime. So is torture. Israel’s indiscriminate bombing of densely-populated civilian areas, its half-century occupation of Palestinian territory and its construction and expansion of Jews-only settler colonies on Palestinian land are all also illegal under international law. Neither Israel nor the United States has joined the ICC. Other leading human rights violators, including North Korea, China, Saudi Arabia, Myanmar and Ethiopia, have either never joined or have withdrawn from the court.

FEMA to test 'Presidential Alert' system next week

President Donald Trump may soon be communicating with you directly on your phone — even if you don't follow him on Twitter.

Next Thursday, the Federal Emergency Management Agency will do its first test of a system that allows the president to send a message to most U.S. cellphones.

More than 100 mobile carriers, including all the major wireless firms, are participating in the roll out, FEMA stated in a message on its website posted Thursday.

"The EAS [Emergency Alert System] is a national public warning system that provides the President with the communications capability to address the nation during a national emergency," FEMA said.

The test message will have a header that reads "Presidential Alert," according to the agency.

Users whose phones are on will twice hear a tone and vibration and then see an English-only (for now) message: "THIS IS A TEST of the National Wireless Emergency Alert System. No action is needed.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder at the timing of this test, and what "national emergency" information(or false flag disinfo) we will be getting the first time this is actually used for real.

THIS IS THE VIDEO POLICE DIDN'T WANT YOU TO SEE, SHOWING COP SHOOT AT DOG, KILL INNOCENT MOM INSTEAD

In June, the taxpayers of Burlington, Iowa were told that they will be hit with a $2 million bill to pay for a police officer who shot and killed an innocent mother. The tragic scenario was captured on video and the fact that most of that video remained a secret was part of the reason the family received the settlement in the wrongful death suit. However, all that has now changed and the video was released this week.

In May, during a federal court hearing in Davenport, Iowa, officials revealed that the confidential police video—a key piece of evidence in exonerating a cop who killed the innocent mom—did not corroborate the cop’s claims he made before firing the fatal shots that accidentally killed the mother of two.

Now, we have the evidence showing this was true.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Over quite some time now in this country, innocent people, and their pets, have been gunned down by the police with utter impunity, and evidence of this kind of activity routinely suppressed by governmental agencies.

Rather than the citizens of this town (because they did noting wrong) having to bear the burden of a financially challenging, but no less justified wrongful death suit, it should be paid by the police who do these acts, and their police departments, taking the brunt of the financial burden for restitution.

I think such a change might make it clear that lying by police to justify the murder of an innocent person, and their pets, will not be tolerated in this country anymore, period, end of discussion.

Brussels Creates Special Office For Monitoring The ‘Russian Threat’ On The Internet

Belgium’s General Intelligence and Security Service has set up an office to monitor Russian and Chinese cyber threats, the country’s parliamentary defense commission said in a report.

The Defense Committee session was held in June, but the report on the outcome of the session was released on Friday.

“As for the Russian cyber-threat, the Ministry of Defense General Information and Security Service hired an official in charge of a non-permanent working group … China’s activities are also being monitored,” said the committee’s service representative, the report.

U.S. CONDUCTS LIVE-FIRE DRILLS WITH SYRIAN 'REBELS' IN RARE DISPLAY AIMED AT RUSSIA

On Thursday an anti-Assad group in Syria's south confirmed to Reuters via its 'rebel' commander that it is conducting rare military exercises with American forces in order to "send a strong message to Russia and Iran that the Americans and the rebels intend to stay and confront any threats to their presence," according to a new Reuters report.

The anti-Assad commander, Colonel Muhanad al Talaa, is part of the Pentagon-backed Maghawir al Thawra group now conducting eight days of "live-fire and ground assault" drills that involve "hundreds" of U.S. troops and allied Syrian insurgents cooperating together.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And I would like to politely remind the White House, Pentagon, State Department and Congress that Russia has staged its own, huge, live-fire exercise in Siberia, Vostok 2018 Vostok 2018 Continues featuring over 300,000 Russian military, plus integrated Chinese military as well.

The Russians are sending a strong signal as well, that should the US attack at Idlib, the Russians may well not be fighting the US military alone, either.

Former police chief in Florida pleads guilty to framing men in racially tinged cases

Five years ago, Biscayne Park Police Chief Raimundo Atesiano bragged to the town’s leaders about his department’s exceptional 100 percent clearance rate on burglaries in the tree-lined suburb north of Miami.

On Friday, however, Atesiano admitted his own criminal behavior was behind the boast to the village commission: He acknowledged at his plea hearing in Miami federal court that he directed three of his police officers to pin a series of unsolved home and vehicle break-ins on three innocent men to perfect the force’s property crimes record.

Atesiano, 52, pleaded guilty to a conspiracy charge of depriving the three suspects of their civil rights because he and the officers framed them. Although race was not a factor in the federal case against the former police chief, the three wrongly arrested men are black.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is absolutely disgusting behaviour, but the most horrific thing about it, was that it was possible these police officers might have gotten away with it.

And Attorney General Sessions, where are you when such ignominious, nasty trampling on individuals' rights occurs, like the frames these cops tried to pin on 3 innocent men?!?

You, sir, are absolutely no where to be seen, that is precisely where you are in this case.

Israeli Stooge, Pompeo, Slams John Kerry for Meeting Iranian Officials

We can't really think of anything insulting enough to say about Pompeo as a sub-headline...sorry

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) – Former Secretary of State John Kerry’s meetings with Iranian officials on the scrapped international nuclear deal were “unseemly and unprecedented,” his successor Michael Pompeo said on Friday.

“What Secretary Kerry has done is unseemly and unprecedented,” Pompeo told reporters at the State Department. Pompeo accused Kerry of engaging “with the world’s largest state sponsor of terror” and said the meetings were “inconsistent with the foreign policy of the United Sates.”

The top US diplomat also noted that Iran has fired rockets toward US embassy in Baghdad this week and has “taken action” against the US consulate in the Iraqi city of Basra. Earlier on Friday, Trump slammed Kerry for “illegal meetings with very hostile Iranian regime” and questioned whether Kerry has filed under the Foreign Agent Registration Act>>>...

Trump, Pompeo accuse Kerry of 'undermining' US policy on Iran

Obama-era official has admitted he met Iran's foreign minister 'three or four times' since Trump took office.
***
"You can't find precedent for this in US history, and Secretary Kerry ought not to engage in that kind of behaviour," an agitated Pompeo told reporters at the State Department.
***
A spokesperson for Kerry said in a statement to The Hill on Friday: "Kerry stays in touch with his former counterparts around the world just like every previous secretary of state.

"There's nothing unusual, let alone unseemly or inappropriate, about former diplomats meeting with foreign counterparts ... What is unseemly and unprecedented is for the podium of the State Department to be hijacked for political theatrics," the spokesperson added.

Meanwhile, Kerry took to Twitter to respond to Trump, saying: "Mr. President, you should be more worried about Paul Manafort meeting with Robert Mueller than me meeting with Iran's FM. But if you want to learn something about the nuclear agreement that made the world safer, buy my new book."

Trump supporters immediately leapt on Kerry's actions as evidence of "treason" >>>

A law lesson from Alan Dershowitz

"Alan Dershowitz has challenged Channel 4 TV in Britain and Jeremy Corbyn, casting himself as a defender against anti-Semitism and an advocate for fairness. Dershowitz, who consistently posits himself as a liberal who has discovered that too much tolerance is wrong (for example, The Case For Israel), denounced Corbyn’s displays of tolerance for different viewpoints by attributing to Corbyn the alleged crimes of others. Evidently Dershowitz does not impose these rigours upon himself or his own clients, including Jeffrey Epstein who pled guilty to soliciting a minor for prostitution (and with whom Dershowitz was accused and then exonerated while not denying “statements that the underlying alleged misconduct may have occurred with someone else”).">>

French FM warns Syrian govt against use of chemical weapons

The Syrian government will face ‘consequences’ if they launch a chemical weapons attack on Idlib, warned French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian at joint press conference with his Chinese counterpart Wang Li in Beijing on Tursday.

Home of British nuclear expert who appears on Russia Today is raided by police - as several officers are taken ill with suspected chemical poisoning

A chemical weapons expert who appears on the Russia Today TV news channel has been arrested after officers discovered potentially hazardous materials at his home in Devon.

Former research scientist Dr Chris Busby - an outspoken critic of the British Government's handlings of the Salisbury poisoning - was held after officers reported feeling unwell during a raid on his property yesterday morning.

Police had initially targeted the address in the sleepy seaside town of Bideford over concerns for a woman's welfare.

However officers complained of feeling unwell and were immediately checked over by an ambulance Hazardous Area Response Team and fire crews.

A search of the property found items required analysis from specialist officers and a bomb disposal team.

Alex Jones Was Banned By Twitter For Mean Words, Yet Antifa Groups Calling For Assassination Thrive

Antifa groups are using Twitter and Facebook to advocate for the assassination of President Trump

While social media companies collude to silence right-of-center influencers, violent far-left extremist groups appear to be given a pass. This NYC based antifa group has been using their “leftist privilege” to freely violate Twitter and Facebook Terms of Service. In another glaring example of “non existent social media bias”, this extremist group is apparently allowed to use their social media account to advocate for murder.

The Base is a NYC based “anarchist center” that is run by the Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement, a violent extremist group that we have covered extensively. The extremist group is currently offering downloadable poster and stickers that include images of guns and other calls to violence but the most concerning was an image that depicted the murder of President Donald Trump.

Yellow Journalism of Yellow-Bellied Bob Woodward & the NYT

It takes no time at all. You listen to Bob Woodward’s halting speech. You read his lumpen prose, and you get right away what undergirds his Trump-phobic tome, “Fear: Trump in the White House.”

Naively, the president had expected to fulfill his revolutionary campaign promises to the American voters, an assumption that threw Woodward and the D.C. elites for a loop.

If past is prologue, voters don’t—and should not—get their way. After all, the views of Trump voters on American power are polar opposites of those held by the permanent state.

What does “Boobus Americanus” know? Nothing!

Woodward and the New York Times’ anonymous anti-Trump whistleblower consider the president to be stark raving bonkers for not grasping that Rome on the Potomac moves to its own beat. It does not respond to voters, except to mollify them with “bread and circuses.”

THE CIA-VISA FRAUD THAT PRECEDED 9/11

Did you know that the CIA ordered US officials to give visas to unqualified people from terrorist countries to enter the US – to be trained as terrorists?

Here’s the detailed story straight from the horse’s mouth.

Business as usual.

The CIA has the ability to shut down drug investigations and prosecutions – and does so frequently to protect its “assets.”

The CIA can also order visa offices to give visas to ANYONE regardless of their background or the country they come from.

Remember the so called “underwear bomber” who was let on a plane to the US without a passport? He’s the reason everyone who wants to fly has to submit to an untested radiation screening flogged by former head of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff.

The airline was forced to take the undocumented passenger by “a well dressed man in a suit” who has yet to be identified.

‘It’s science fiction’: Professor doubts claims of ‘microwave attacks’ on US diplomats in Cuba

There’s no conclusive evidence that US diplomats stationed in Cuba were injured by a futuristic weapon, Kenneth R. Foster, a professor of bioengineering, told RT, adding that theories involving microwaves were “science fiction.”

NBC published an explosive report earlier this week claiming that several anonymous US officials suspect that Russia was behind a series of unexplained “attacks” on US diplomatic personnel in Cuba and China, leaving the victims with injuries ranging from hearing loss to “problems with cognition.”

But Foster, a professor at the University of Pennsylvania who studied microwave phenomena while working at the Naval Medical Research Center in Bethesda, told RT that the evidence that these purported injuries were caused by some kind of microwave weapon – which the NBC article alleges – is “science fiction.”

Jim Rose: Manus Island and Nauru are not prisons for asylum seekers

Asylum seekers in the Australian camps on Manus Island in PNG and on Nauru are said to be living in chambers of horrors. In fact they are not just safe from the persecution they fled back home, they have gone from being just another asylum seeker in a UN refugee camp in Southeast Asia or the Middle East, to having the entire resources of the Australian Government seeking to place them in a third nation.

Nauru and Manus Island asylum seekers receive free room and board, healthcare and an army of activist lawyers to stand up for them if they are in any way mistreated or must appeal their application.

It is repeatedly claimed the asylum seekers are prisoners on Manus and Nauru. Fake news from the NGOs. The PNG Supreme Court quickly ruled the Manus Island asylum seekers were free to travel anywhere in PNG. That judgment is online.

Russia warns about US attempts to prepare global public opinion for new attack on Syria

Russia says it is concerned about the attempts being made by the United States to prepare the global public opinion for new military aggression against Syria.

“Regarding the international political point of view, the most serious concern is using of a very serious range of opportunities by Washington: from statements by officials to comments by biased media, the goal seems to be the preparation of public opinion for … new aggression against Syria,” said Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova in a press conference in the capital Moscow on Thursday.

She added that tensions were particularly on the rise in Syria’s northwestern province of Idlib due to a high concentration of militants there.

“Despite the uncovering of plans by militants and representatives of White Helmets to stage the use of chemical weapons by government troops, preparation of the above-mentioned staged action continues inside the Idlib zone,” Zakharova said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The things people need to keep asking themselves, are as follows:

IF, with Russia's help, al Assad has been able to liberate nearly the entire country, why would he be using poison chemicals on his own people?!? This makes utterly zero sense.

IF Syria destroyed its chemical weapons under an international agreement and inspection, how are these chemical agents getting into Syria now?!? Who has smuggled them into the country?!?

The short answer is, the people who want the false flag to happen as a justification for an American attack against Idlib, have had these chemicals smuggled in.

Trump May Replace Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis with a Neocon

Now there are rumors circulating that Mattis will step down in the months ahead. If this happens, who will replace him?

Arkansas senator Cotton (or Graham), Bolton, and Sec. State Pompeo would be an almost ideal triad for Israel and the neocons who faithfully do the apartheid state’s bidding in Congress.

For Cotton, it’s all about Israel and the Likudniks. He received $700,000 for his Senate campaign from the Emergency Committee for Israel.

“During the 2014 Israeli invasion of Gaza, when over 500 Palestinian were killed, Cotton called the Israeli defense force ‘the most moral, humanitarian fighting force in the world.’ In December he said Congress should consider supplying Israel with B-52s and so-called ‘bunker-buster’ bombs for a possible strike against Iran,” Medea Benjamin and Nalini Ramachandran wrote back in March, 2015.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please, Lord; not another neocon Likudnik for Secretary of Defense!!

These people are thoroughly blind to the reality that what may in fact be good for Israeli geopolitics may not, at all, be good for the US, and the costs in blood and money for a potential attack against Iran would be horrific.

Turkey imposes indefinite curfew in over 100 Kurdish villages

Turkish authorities in the Kurdish province of Diyarbakir on Wednesday imposed an indefinite curfew effective immediately as of 4 p.m. local time on at least 116 villages and hamlets, citing an imminent military offensive against Kurdish fighters seeking autonomy.

The Ankara-appointed governor’s office said in a press release that the operation zone covered an area falling in the northern districts of Lice, Hazro, Kulp, Silvan, and Kocakoy, a region several thousand kilometers-square large.

People were told to stay indoors at all times indefinitely until a second order.

The mountainous terrain on the provincial borders of Bingol historically serves Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) guerrillas as a sanctuary.

Since the 2015 collapse of a ceasefire and peace talks between the group labeled by Ankara and its Western allies as “terrorists,” the Turkish army has scores of times conducted large-scale operations to bring the mountains under its full control.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder about the timing here, with vast scores of Turkish groups in Syria, attempting to nibble off a little bit of the country, due to the instability brought about through the US aiding and abetting the terrorists here.

Bangladesh says it won't assimilate Rohingya Muslims

Bangladesh has no plans to take in hundreds of thousands of Rohingya Muslim refugees permanently, its foreign secretary said on Wednesday, adding that they “belong” to Myanmar from where they fled.

Some 700,000 Rohingya refugees crossed from the west of mostly Buddhist Myanmar into Bangladesh from August last year, according to U.N. agencies, when Rohingya insurgent attacks on Myanmar security forces triggered a sweeping military response.

Bangladesh and Myanmar reached a deal in November to begin repatriation within two months, but it has not started, with stateless Rohingya still crossing the border.

“We are not thinking of assimilating them in Bangladesh. They belong to Myanmar,” Foreign Secretary Shahidul Haque told Reuters on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum on ASEAN in Hanoi.

Turkey boosts arms to Syrian rebels as Idlib attack looms - rebel sources

Turkey has stepped up arms supplies to Syrian rebels to help them stave off an expected offensive by the Syrian army and its Russian and Iran-backed allies in the northwest near the Turkish frontier, rebel sources told Reuters.

Senior rebel officials said Turkey had sent more military aid to rebels in and around the Idlib region since a summit meeting with Iran and Russia last week failed to agree a deal to avert a government offensive into the area.

Turkey, which is already hosting 3.5 million Syrian refugees, is warning against such an attack, fearing it could force more Syrians over the border. President Tayyip Erdogan has warned of a humanitarian disaster and security risks for Turkey.

“They pledged complete Turkish military support for a long, protracted battle,” a senior FSA commander who was privy to talks in recent days with senior Turkish officials said, requesting anonymity as he was not authorised to speak publicly.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This assault will be a bloodbath, and neither Syria nor Russia can appear as though they are backing down from their vow to rid Idlib of rebels, but the costs will be horrific.

Pro-Saudi Troops Seize Main Roads Into Yemen’s Port City of Hodeidah

Saudi-backed Yemeni forces have advanced closer to the northern port city of Hodeidah, the main aid port for the northern half of the country. The port is controlled by the Shi’ite Houthi movement, and the Saudi-led forces intend to seize it.

For now, the advancing forces have seized a pair of main roads leading into the city, effectively cutting off the Houthis’ supply line into the city. This also limits the ability of transporting humanitarian aid out of the city.

As the fight over the city drags on, this is increasingly concerning. Hodeidah is the sole source of food for millions in northern Yemen, and the offensive means very little aid is getting out. If the city falls entirely, the aid is likely to stop.

This is why the UN has been pushing for a deal to stop the fighting over Hodeidah. The UN offered to take control of the city just to keep aid flowing, though the pro-Saudi side has rejected the proposal, saying they want the Houthis to unconditionally surrender.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The collective punishment of a people by denying them food, is a war crime; but apparently, the B.O.Y. (the Butcher of Yemen, aka Saudi Crown Prince Bin Salman) believes that the wealthy are to be held above reproach, when they have the power to engineer the kind of genocide and brutality against the Yemeni people we have witnessed here over the past 3 years.

U.S. Department of Education reopens case against Rutgers alleging anti-Semitism

The U.S. Department of Education has reopened a seven-year old complaint against Rutgers University alleging Jewish students were subject to a hostile environment – a move that comes as the department’s assistant secretary for civil rights adopts a broader definition of anti-Semitism that includes criticisms of Israel.

Kenneth Marcus, the assistant secretary, said a pro-Palestinian event in January 2011 may have discriminated against Jewish students by charging them admission while allowing others in for free – allegations event organizers disputed.

A Rutgers spokesman said in a statement that the university was not notified about the investigation but will cooperate fully with the Department of Education.

“There is no place for anti-Semitism or any form of religious intolerance at Rutgers,” officials said in a statement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please, Lord.... NO!! Antisemitism CANNOT be conflated with logical, factual criticisms of the Israeli government, particularly as they apply to Palestinians.

IF the ruling is in favor of the Jewish students, it is going to have a chilling, crushing effect on free speech in this country, if the court rules in favor of Israel; but please understand, that is precisely Israel wants to see happen; and the reason for that is so that conversations about innocent Palestinian kids getting put in jail, tortured, to obtain confessions, and then signing legal documents in a language they don't know (Hebrew) will come to an end.

Iran WARNING: US tells airlines not to fly through airspace as WW3 fears rise

The advisory also warns military activities linked to the bloody conflict in Syria have been ramped across Iran's airspace.

Tensions between Tehran and Washington are running high following Donald Trump’s controversial decision to pull out of the landmark Iran nuclear deal re-introduce economic sanctions last month.

Flight Service Bureau, which provides safety information on airspace to airlines, said "without seeming alarmist", the deteriorating relationship between the US and Iran must be taken into account when planning flights in Iran's airspace.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is getting just about as serious as is a heart attack: I find myself very alarmed at these developments.

Turkey's Latest Power Grab: A Naval Base In Cyprus?

The possibility of a Turkish naval base on Cyprus does not bode well for the chances of a Cyprus reunification deal, particularly after the breakdown of the July 2017 peace talks, which were suspended when "Turkey had refused to relinquish its intervention rights on Cyprus or the presence of troops on the island."

Turkey has 30,000 soldiers stationed on Cyprus, the northern part of which it has illegally occupied since 1974.

"If Greek-Turkish tensions escalate, the possibility of another ill-timed military provocation could escalate with them... Moreover, such a conflict might open up an even greater opportunity for Russian interference." - Lawrence A. Franklin.

White House Threatens Military Response Against Iran-Backed Militias in Iraq

Iraq may once again, for the first time in nearly a decade, become a theater of US-Iran confrontation according to a White House statement published Tuesday evening.

“The United States will hold the regime in Tehran accountable for any attack that results in injury to our personnel or damage to United States government facilities,” press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a written statement posted to WhiteHouse.gov. “America will respond swiftly and decisively in defense of American lives.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ms. Sanders, forgive me please, but one quick question; has Muktada Al Sadr, a Shiite Muslim cleric now in leadership in the Iraqi Parliament, gotten the message?!?

Ms. Sanders, do you remember this guy?!? He was the one stating that if the US overstayed the SOFA agreement with Iraq by one second, that all American troops would be "fair game" for his Madhi Army to attack. He is still in touch with the military leaders of that paramilitary outfit, and could "bring the band back together" very quickly.

There are also conversations about the Iraqi government completely dropping the dollar in its trade with Iran; would that have anything to do with these threats, and re-destabilizing Iraq, in order to place a US-centric politician at the helm here, and get Al Sadr out ?!?

IF you are honest, the short answer would be, "HELL, yes!!"

Meet Turkey’s New Sovereign Wealth Fund Chairman, Who Has "Now Taken Public Companies Prisoners"

What does a man who already controls pretty much everything in his country — from politics to the judiciary to defense — give to himself? How about direct takeover of his country's sovereign wealth fund?

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has appointed himself chairman of Turkey’s sovereign wealth fund after recent promises to exert greater influence over the economy. He's nixed the old guard management and hand-picked their replacements, in a move his political rival, presidential candidate who lost the June election, Muharrem Ince, has aptly described as taking "public companies prisoners".

And not to be one to break medieval sultanate tradition, he's further named his son-in-law and Finance Minister Berat Albayrak as deputy chairman.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

With Turkey poised to gobble off bits of Syria, Erdogan had better be careful about how he decides to deal with its run-away inflation. In a companion story, the following is noted:

"Leaking Like Mad": FBI-DOJ-MSM Collusion Went Far Deeper Than Previously Known

The FBI's coordination with the mainstream media surrounding the 2016 US election - a "media leak strategy" which was first first revealed Tuesday, goes far deeper than first reported, according to Fox News, which obtained "new communications between the former lovers."

A December 15, 2016 email appears to discuss a "political" leaking operation, in which others were "leaking like mad" amid the Trump-Russia probe.

“Oh, remind me to tell you tomorrow about the times doing a story about the rnc hacks,” Page texted Strzok.

“And more than they already did? I told you Quinn told me they pulling out all the stops on some story…” Strzok replied.

A source told Fox News “Quinn” could be referring to Richard Quinn, who served as the chief of the Media and Investigative Publicity Section in the Office of Public Affairs. Quinn could not be reached for comment.

This was absolutely crazy, but that is consistently how the Clintonistas roll.

Missing Wikileaks Associates' Belongings Discovered In Waters Near Norway

More than three weeks after Wikileaks associate Arjen Kamphuis disappeared without a trace, a local fisherman has discovered his belongings in a sea in northern Norway, prompting local police to search the water and land around where the items were found, the Daily Mail reports.

Arjen Kamphuis, 47, had been missing since leaving his hotel in the northern Norwegian town of Bodo on Aug. 20. He was staying there while on holiday, but the time had come for him to travel back to his home country, the Netherlands. He had been expected to fly home to Amsterdam on Aug. 22, but Kamphuis didn't show up for his flight, which was set to depart from the Norwegian town of Trondheim, located more than 700 kilometers south of Bodo.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks to me, potentially, like more "wet work", ahead of the US midterms.

Another Coalition Strike On Yemen Civilian Bus Occurs The Same Day US Affirms It Stands By Saudis

Just as the U.S. in typical fashion continues lecturing countries like Syria, Russia, and Iran over severe human rights violations, including allegations of everything from launching barrel bomb strikes on civilian areas in Idlib to chemical weapons attacks to sensational spy poisoning ops in the U.K., the Saudi-US coalition in Yemen has attacked another bus full of children and civilians in Yemen.

On Wednesday multiple Yemeni journalists reporting from on the ground confirmed a new airstrike resulting in mass civilian casualties, this time a Saudi-US coalition strike scored a direct hit on a bus station in besieged Hodeidah City.

The strike occurred the same day Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Secretary of Defense James Mattis announced they've certified the legality of US assistance to the coalition in Yemen before Congress.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mattis and Pompeo has just certified that the US is completely to be held harmless and indemnified for assisting the Saudis slaughter innocent civilians in Yemen.

I would like to politely suggest to both men, that yes, the arms sales, encouraged by our very own Merchant of Death in-Chief, President Trump, have been through the roof, and the makers of those weapons have a very great bottom line right now.

But at what moral cost to this country, in aiding and abetting Saudi war crimes in Yemen?!?

As a Christian pacifist activist, I will continue to witness to this Saudi genocide in Yemen, and call it for what it is; primarily war crimes against civilians, pure and simple.

And gentlemen, characterizing these US military actions in Yemen as "legal" does not make them a morally correct choice for this government. And it may well backfire against the US government, and in a splendidly spectacular manner.

Hillary Slips Up, Tweets Furious Screed Based On Debunked Kavanaugh Smear

Hillary Clinton went on 6-tweet tirade Wednesday against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, citing a debunked fake news story that Kavanaugh referred to birth-control pills as "abortion-inducing drugs."

I want to be sure we're all clear about something that Brett Kavanaugh said in his confirmation hearings last week. He referred to birth-control pills as "abortion-inducing drugs." That set off a lot of alarm bells for me, and it should for you, too.

The rest of the screed, which you can read by clicking on her tweet, condemns Kavanaugh for making it "clear that safe and legal abortion isn't the only fundamental reproductive right at grave risk if he is confirmed. Access to birth control is, too."

Except, Kavanaugh never said that...

And Hillary either didn't get the message, or is choosing to deceive her 23.4 million followers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This sounds like desperation on the cusp of madness.

President Clinton, kindly get your wife away from the computer, so she doesn't mis-Tweet again!!

Terrorists Preparing to Use Chemical Weapons Against Children in Syria – MoD

According to the Russian Defense Ministry, the White Helmets, together with terrorists, have chosen 22 families with children, as well as orphans kidnapped from refugee camps to participate in their staged filming.

"Terrorists from a group calling itself Tanzim ?urras ad-Din* [The Guardians of Religion Organization] are engaged in the direct preparation of sites for the detonation of containers loaded with poisonous substances during the shooting of a video about 'chemical attacks'," the Russian Center for Syrian Reconciliation reported.

As the center reported, the terrorists are preparing to actually use chlorine-based poison substances against the participants of the shooting, in order to then blame the Syrian army for the chemical attack.

US Destroyer Enters Mediterranean As Syria Tensions Build; Carrier On Standby

An American battleship, the USS Bulkeley destroyer, has reportedly entered the Mediterranean and is headed for Syria, equipped with over 50 Tomahawk missiles. This deployment comes after previous reports of the attack submarine USS Newport News (SSN-750) arriving in the Mediterranean, and after the arrival Tuesday of A U.S. Marine Corps small attack carrier full of F-35B stealth jets, the USS Essex, in the Middle East region as detailed by the military website, Task and Purpose.

The Russian news agency Interfax now reports that American forces in the region possess up to 200 Tomahawk cruise missiles available to strike targets in Syria if ordered to do so.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, it is really looking to me that a US attack is definitely on regarding Syria; perhaps not today, but in the very near-term.

This is an awful lot of hardware to preposition without being quite ready to use it, and my sense, as ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid of President Trump to order a strike in Syria, which most probably means hot combat against Russian troops as well, that this will happen soon, and my guess is, it will be ordered later this month, to give him traction through the Mid-term elections.

‘We’re not agents’: UK’s suspects in Skripal case talk exclusively with RT’s editor-in-chief

Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov told RT’s editor-in-chief they had nothing to do with the Skripals’ poisoning and are now scared to go outside, after the UK pointed to them as Russian intelligence agents on a kill mission.

UK prosecutors claimed their names were not real, but Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov have confirmed their identities in an interview with RT Editor-in-Chief Margarita Simonyan.

Both men said emphatically that they were not Russian intelligence agents and were merely sightseeing in Salisbury. They said they wanted to visit the “wonderful town” of Salisbury but realized they came at a bad time – and not just because of the wet English weather.

The subsequent accusations caught them completely by surprise.

US To Impose "Very Severe" Sanctions On Russia Over Skripal Case

In the latest salvo meant to convince Mueller that Trump is not a pawn of the Kremlin, a State Dept official said on Thursday that the US plans a second round of "very severe" sanctions on Russia over use of nerve agent. The stated reason: Russia has not allowed on-site chemical weapons inspections, nor has it provided reassurance that it won’t use nerve agents against its own people, says Manisha Singh, Asst. Sec. for bureau of economic and business affairs

"We are looking at this November deadline” under the Chemical and Biological Weapons Control and Warfare Elimination Act of 1991, Singh said, adding that "we plan to impose a very severe second round of sanctions."

The sanctions will kick in some time in November, presumably just after the November midterms, if Moscow does not take steps in the wake of the poisoning of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal in the United Kingdom, Assistant Secretary of State Manisha Singh said on Thursday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There seem to be a stacking on of events against counties we don't like, first part of November, like this sanctioning of Russia, and the "drop dead date date" edict President Trump has given the world against buying Iranian oil.

I think the severity and impact of Hurricane Florence has put much action in the Middle East (like a further attack against Syria) on hold, albeit temporarily.

SYRIAN WAR REPORT – SEPTEMBER 13, 2018: TURKEY ABDUCTS SUSPECT OF 2013 REYHANLI BOMBING IN LATTAKIA

On September 12, Turkey’s National Intelligence Organization (MIT) announced that it had abducted Yusuf Nazik, a suspect of the 2013 Reyhanli bombing, in the Syrian city of Lattakia and transported him to Turkey. According to the MIT, Nazik confessed that he participated in the 2013 attack on orders from Syrian intelligence units. He allegedly scouted the crime scene prior to the attack and moved explosives from Syria to Turkey.

On May 11, 2013, two car bombs exploded in the city of Reyhanli in Turkey’s Hatay Province killing 53 people. Then, the Turkish side accused the Syrian Intelligence and Turkish Marxist group Acilciler, now thought to be based in Syria, of being behind the attack. The Syrian side denounced these claims.

Google Responds To Leaked Video As Damning History Of Bias Haunts Company; Parscale Calls For Investigation

In a late Wednesday statement, Google spokeswoman Riva Sciuto said "For 20 years, everyone at Google has been able to freely express their opinions at these meetings" (just not over email - like conservative former employee James Damore, who is currently suing Google for discrimination after he was fired for criticizing the company's diversity policies).

"Nothing was said at that meeting, or any other meeting, to suggest that any political bias ever influences the way we build or operate our products," Google's statement continues. "To the contrary, our products are built for everyone, and we design them with extraordinary care to be a trustworthy source of information for everyone, without regard to political viewpoint."

Except several examples suggest otherwise...

If You Oppose NFL Kneeling, You May Be a Victim of Russian Trolls: WaPo

The Washington Post, offering no evidence, would like us to know that those dastardly Russians are at it again - using weaponized social media accounts to twist our minds over both sides of the NFL kneeling controversy. In short, Americans whipped up over NFL players refusing to stand for the National Anthem may not be in control of their own emotions thanks to "instances of accounts linked to Russian trolls" who have "weighed in" on the NFL controversy, as recently as four months ago. So, not actual Russian trolls - but Twitter accounts linked to them, and four months ago. Got it. Citing a report by CNN which also contains no evidence, WaPo's offers a "reminder from CNN Tech about the opportunity that Russia sees in the divide here over the anthem"...

Lessons from White House disinformation a century ago: 'It's dangerous to believe your own propaganda'

Newspapers across the United States began to publish the fake papers on Sept. 15, 1918.

The curious case of coddled children killers in New Mexico

Philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer famously stated "All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident." These days, a sizable percentage of the American public is entering the third stage when evaluating the veracity of its government. Consider the curious case of a New Mexico compound, its desolate location, its harem of women, its captive children, its stash of artillery, its training for Jihad on schools, its dead body, and the fact no one in American law enforcement seems to think any of this is much of a concern...

US sees Russian weapon behind US diplomats’ mystery ailments, say officials

A Russian-made device caused the mystery ailments that affected more than two dozen American diplomats in Cuba and China, according to United States government officials who have been briefed on the matter. Since September of last year, Washington has recalled the majority of its personnel from its embassy in Havana and at least two more diplomats from its consulate in the Chinese city of Guangzhou. The evacuees reported experiencing “unusual acute auditory or sensory phenomena” and “unusual sounds or piercing noises”. Subsequent tests showed that they suffered from sudden and unexplained loss of hearing as well as from various forms of brain injuries. In April of this year the Canadian embassy evacuated all family members of its personnel stationed in the Cuban capital over similar health concerns. ...
