Trump Administration 'Threatens to Pull Plug' on Gaza Reconstruction Plan

The Trump administration is considering abandoning its focus on economic development in the Gaza Strip, as a result of what it describes as a lack of any goodwill on the part of Hamas, the Palestinian terrorist organization controlling the coastal enclave. According to a report published Monday in the New York Times, the administration's peace team is frustrated by the lack of progress in Gaza, and is threatening to "pull the plug" on an international plan to rehabilitate Gaza from the damage wrought by previous wars between Hamas and Israel.

Jared Kushner, Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser, told the paper that Hamas "has driven Gaza to a state of despair" and that it is to blame for the current stalemate. Last month, Kushner and Trump's special envoy for the peace process, Jason Greenblatt, made a five-country visit to the Middle East which was focused on raising funds for economic and humanitarian projects that would benefit Gaza, mainly from the oil-rich Gulf States.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, under their dual tutelage by Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu and Sheldon Adelson, one of the President's prime contributors, both President Trump and Jered Kuschner are missing the mark by miles in their misunderstanding of the Palestinian position here.

The Palestinian position here isn't about financial upliftment and opportunity; it is about the homeland from which they were evicted, upon the founding of the State of Israel.

Final defense bill would limit US support to Saudi campaign in Yemen

The compromise National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) unveiled by House and Senate Armed Services Committee staffers Monday retained and modified a provision from the Senate-passed version that would require the Saudi-led coalition to meet certain criteria before the U.S. military can refuel its planes.

“Yemen remains an area of intense interest and concern for our members, and we have aggressive oversight in the conference report,” a senior staffer told reporters at a background briefing.

A Saudi-led coalition has been fighting Iran-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen since 2015. The United States has been supporting the Saudi campaign with billions of dollars in arms sales, intelligence sharing and logistics like air refueling.

Lawmakers on Capitol Hill have grown increasingly frustrated at the Saudi campaign as the civilian death toll rises, most of which has been blamed on Saudi airstrikes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This language will make US enabling Saudi Arabia in their genocide of Yemen more "palatable' to Congress, while civilians continue to get slaughtered indiscrimminately.

Funny: you don't hear a word about this conflict from the mainstream presstitutes.

But as a Christian pacifist activist, I will continue to witness to the US enabling of Saudi war crimes, in Yemen.

Oh, and if you are wandering just what this war is looking like for those Yemenis being killed or maimed for life, here is what your government is doing in your name, and with your tax dollars in Yemen (warning; very graphic visuals):

Images: Yemeni children assassinated by Saudi bombing raids

Now, don't those images just make you prouder than hell to be an American?!?

Don't they?!? Don't they?!?

And trust me, this nicely weasel-worded NDAA will have utterly no effect on the situation on the ground here in Yemen.

WAS REAGAN A TRAITOR TOO?

If anyone thinks that Donald Trump is the only U.S. president ever targeted for befriending Russia, think again.

As I indicated in a recent article, the deep state went after President Kennedy for doing the same thing. And yes, like Trump, they called Kennedy a traitor, an appeaser, and a coward for refusing to stand up to Russia, which was then part of the Soviet Union.

Yesterday the Texas Tribune published an article entitled “It’s Time to Impeach the President” by Republican state representative Jason Villalba. Comparing Trump to conservative/Republican icon Ronald Reagan, Villalba wrote:

I am a Republican today because of Ronald Reagan. He instilled in me the principles that have guided my life … Today, our own president of the United States mocks these basic tenets.

Well, except for this, which Villalba failed to mention: Reagan was another president the deep state and the conservative movement targeted for befriending Russia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sound familiar, folks?!?

Because it should. Every time a US President starts to ratchet down the tension with Russia, the Deep State has apoplexy and labels that President a "traitor."

Because in a very Orwellian sense, the Deep State in this country desperately needs a villian to demonize, and with which to scare Americans out of their tax dollars, buying military equipment and weaponry, which in this part of the 21st century, does not even begin to compare with that of Russia or China.

So if you hear someone demonizing President Trump about his Helsinki Summit, please remember all the American Presidents before him, trying to do the same thing, and how they were treated.

In terms of attempting to create a better relationship with Russia, these men are not the villians here; it is the members of the American Deep State, who should be named and shamed, as perpetrators of a violently confrontational foreign policy against... darn near everyone, except, of course...Israel.

Will Trump Revert to Gunboat Diplomacy in Latin America?

Venezuela is the most visible problem. Under the disastrous Marxist economics that President Hugo Chavez and his successor, Nicolas Maduro, have pursued for nearly two decades, Venezuela has become a catastrophe of economic and political chaos. Once the wealthiest country in South America, Venezuela’s gross domestic product is plunging at double-digit rates, and inflation is now soaring at a mind-boggling 46,000 percent. Maduro’s increasingly beleaguered regime has responded with ever more severe authoritarian measures, virtually eradicating the country’s free press and imprisoning scores of opposition leaders.

IN 1974 CALL TO ABOLISH CIA, SANDERS FOLLOWED IN FOOTSTEPS OF JFK, TRUMAN

According to an article in Politico, Bernie Sanders, during his 1974 campaign for the Senate on Vermont’s Liberty Union Party ticket, called the Central Intelligence Agency “a dangerous institution that has got to go.” Sanders complained that the CIA was only accountable to “right-wing lunatics who use it to prop up fascist dictatorships.”

Jeremy Bash, a former CIA chief of staff who is now an adviser to Hillary Clinton’s campaign, told reporter Michael Crowley that Sanders’ comment “reinforces the conclusion that he’s not qualified to be commander in chief.” Bash explained: “Abolishing the CIA in the 1970s would have unilaterally disarmed America during the height of the Cold War and at a time when terrorist networks across the Middle East were gaining strength.” Bash was chief of staff for Leon Panetta at both the CIA and Defense Department, and now runs a consulting firm called Beacon Global Strategies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Those agencies allegedly created to keep Americans safe, have become so deeply corrupted and poliicised, that any possibility that they can continue to function as advertised, has been completely destroyed.

And what Bash fails to address, in his criticism of Sanders' position is why there were terrorist groups starting to to form in the 70s in the Middle East?!?!

There is a very interesting treatment of US policy in the Middle East in Wikipedia.org which serves us well, in answering that question:

US Foreign Policy in the Middle East.

It states:

"United States foreign policy in the Middle East has its roots as early as the Barbary Wars in the first years of the U.S.'s existence, but became much more expansive after World War II. American policy during the Cold War tried to prevent Soviet Union influence by supporting anti-communist regimes and backing Israel against Soviet-sponsored Arab countries. The U.S. also came to replace the United Kingdom as the main security patron of the Persian Gulf states in the 1960s and 1970s, working to ensure a stable flow of Gulf oil.[1] Since the 9/11 attacks of 2001, U.S. policy has included an emphasis on counter-terrorism. The U.S. has diplomatic relations with all countries in the Middle East except for Iran, whose 1979 revolution brought to power a staunchly anti-American regime."

And speaking of regimes, and regime changes, one of the hallmarks of American foreign policy in this region, has been precisely that; we did it in Iran in 53, overthrowing the duly elected President, and replacing him with the Shah of Iran; that is why Iranian rhetoric, since the 79 revolution, has been so staunchly anti-American.

More recently, it has been done to Afghanistan in 2002; Iraq in 2003, and Libya in 2011.

One could tell that those countries were about to be invaded from the uptick of demonization in the US corporate presstitute media against them; but the real reasons this was happening were never honestly put forward.

I would like to believe that the US govenment is going to have a very hard time lying us into the next war, which will most probably be against Iran; but perhaps the American public may astonish me yet again on this with their sound-bite ready naivete.

Mr. Bash is disingenuous in the extreme when he refuses to go to the root cause of Middle Eastern terrorism; the US invades and regime changes countries, expropirating resouces to which it has no moral right, and insures that those resources are only sold in US dollars.

When Karl Marx made the observation that all wars are economic in their origins, he was entirely correct.

But that is not how you "sell" a war to your people, at least not in the Unhinged, Surveilled State of Amerika; you sell it with lies, and deceptions, and the very sure and certain knowledge that your kids will not be coming back in pieces from that war, in a cheap aluminium coffin, decorated with a cheap, Chinese-fabricated American flag.

FACIAL RECOGNITION TOLL BOOTHS IDENTIFY DRIVERS AND PASSENGERS, NOTIFY POLICE WITHIN SECONDS

The state of New York is using facial recognition cameras to identify drivers and passengers at toll booths.

A recent article in the New York Post revealed that toll booths use facial recognition to identify everyone.

“We are now moving to facial-recognition technology, which takes it to a whole new level, where it can see the face of the person in the car and run that technology against databases," Gov. Andrew Cuomo said. (Click here & here to learn more.)

Roughly one in every two American adults—117 million people—are in the facial recognition networks used by law enforcement, according to a 2016 report.

DHS and law enforcement have created an Orwellian nightmare in NYC.

Imagine a future where police install facial recognition cameras at two thousand bridges and tunnels throughout NYC.

Now imagine that happening in your city or town.

ESCOBAR: HERE'S THE REAL REASON THE US MUST TALK TO RUSSIA

Future historians may well identify Russian President Vladimir Putin’s landmark March 1 speech as the ultimate game-changer in the 21st-century New Great Game in Eurasia. The reason is minutely detailed in Losing Military Supremacy: The Myopia of American Strategic Planning, a new book by Russian military/naval analyst Andrei Martyanov.

Martyanov is uniquely equipped for the task. Born in Baku in the early 1960s, he was a naval officer in the USSR era up to 1990. He moved to the US in the mid-1990s and is now a lab director in an aerospace firm. He belongs to an extremely rarified group: top military/naval analysts specializing in US-Russia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How, indeed?!?

First, the alleged US "experts" didn't see these developments coming.

Secondly, there is a tremendous corruption of the procurement process for the American military.

The heads of those companies comprising the American military industrial complex, are allowed to continue to believe that because they throw so much money at both parties to keep the contracts flowing, that they can deliver obsolete products which do not work at all as advertised, and charge Americans huge cost overruns to boot.

This corporate culture must change, and rapidly. And there are two things which must be done and immediately (this will probably happen when pigs fly, but I feel compelled, as someone who absolutely respects our military, to throw this out there.)

First, there must be legislation preventing any covert or overt money from the military industrial complex being contributed to any political party.

Second, in each and every contract for military products, it must be spelled out that should equipment not be delivered on time, not work as advertised, and cost far more than the original estimate, the heads of those companies creating such flawed equipment will find themselves tried for treason, judged and convicted by a jury their peers in a court of law, and serve hard time in a NON Club Fed.

I think that this would only have to happen a couple of times, before the leadership in these companies clearly realize that they can no longer do this to our military.

I know this sounds draconian in the extreme, and it is; but if someone has a better idea about cleaning out the brokenness and corruption in the military procurement process, I sure as heck would love to hear it.

Twitter ‘Quality Filter’ Excludes Top Conservatives from Searches

A large number of right-wing and conservative Twitter accounts, including Breitbart News journalists, have been tagged with a mysterious Twitter filter that appears to block their tweets from some searches. It is unclear what else the filter does.

Over the past few days, conservative and right-wing Twitter users have been using the website shadowban.eu to test if the reach of their content is being artificially limited or hidden by Twitter, a process known as “shadowbanning.”

By adding the html tag “&qf=on” and “&qf=off” to the end of search result URLs, the site claims to test whether an account’s tweets are being hidden behind Twitter’s “quality filter,” which hides tweets from what Twitter calls “low quality accounts.” The technology how-to website ghacks also recommends this method to enable or disable the quality filter. “&qf=on” switches on the filter, while “&qf=off” turns it off.

Smartphones are killing teenagers' memories, study says

New research suggests that radiation from smartphones is negatively impacting teenagers' memories, leaving them with short-term memory loss. The concern is that a year's worth of radiation could be enough to damage the part of the brain that interprets images and shapes.

According to the study, which was published Monday, researchers found that there is a negative impact on memory performance after exposure to radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (RF-EMF) radiation.

"This may suggest that indeed RF-EMF absorbed by the brain is responsible for the observed associations." said Martin Röösli, Head of Environmental Exposures and Health at the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute (Swiss TPH) in a statement, announcing the findings.

ALARMING STUDY SHOWS LINK BETWEEN DIGITAL MEDIA USE AND AND ADHD

The research was conducted by scientists at the Swiss TPH and studied the habits of 700 adolescents in Switzerland between the ages of 12 and 17.

RESEARCHERS WARN INCOME INEQUALITY IN US GETTING WORSE, IT WAS “INTENTIONAL”

According to researchers at the Economic Policy Institute (EPI), a Washington, D.C.-based liberal think tank, the top 1 percent of American families took home approximately 26.3 times as much income as the bottom 99 percent in 2015— a 4 percent increase from 2013.

The report titled “The New Gilded Age: Income inequality in the U.S. by state, metropolitan area, and county,” is authored by Estelle Sommeiller, socio-economist at the Institute for Research in Economic and Social Sciences in France and Mark Price, an economist at the Keystone Research Center in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, who warned about the alarming trends in income inequality spreading across the country.

Researchers used the latest government data to analyze how the top 1 percent and the bottom 99 percent in each state have fared from 1970 to 2015 by county and metropolitan area. This analysis reveals vast and widespread growth in income inequality in “every corner of the country,” said the report.

WOW! If, in fact, these numbers are correct, the situation is pretty grim out there.

$52,000/SECOND: RON PAUL WARNS WASHINGTON'S SPENDING ITS WAY TO A FISCAL CRISIS

According to financial writer Simon Black, the federal government is spending approximately 52,000 dollars per second. This, not last year’s tax cuts, is the reason why the national debt has reached a record 21 trillion dollars, which is more than America’s gross domestic product (GDP).

Another ominous sign is that this year both Social Security and Medicare will have to draw down on their reserve funds to be able to pay benefits. The Social Security and Medicare trust funds will both soon be bankrupt, putting additional strains on the federal budget and American taxpayers.

The excessive debt caused by excessive spending will inevitably cause a major economic crisis. Yet, with a few notable exceptions, there is little to no desire in Washington to cut spending. Instead, both parties are committed to increasing spending on warfare and welfare while ignoring the looming entitlements crisis.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears that the idiots in DC do not understand the relationship between spending on steroids, and that leading to financial oblivion, which is where this country is apparently headed.

And no, the Russians did not do this; the Chinese did not do this; the US government did it, in a series of self-inflicted economic wounds, from which the US government might never recover.

FCC CONFIRMS SINCLAIR MISLED AGENCY TO TRY AND GET ITS MEGAMERGER APPROVED

Last week, the FCC shocked many by sending the Sinclair Tribune merger to merger review purgatory. It was shocking, in part, because the FCC had spent the better part of the last year comically neutering decades-old media consolidation rules specifically at Sinclair's behest, only to suddenly turn around and find fault with Sinclair's logic, relegating the merger review to an administrative law judge (historically the death knell for similar deals). Many of these rules have traditionally had bipartisan support, since they prevent any one company from dominating local media and distorting public discourse.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is rare that I have anything even remotely kind to say about the FCC, but in this instance, I find I must give them at least a miocroscopic "attaperson".

FOX News Goes Full MSM; Informs Top Reporters To Cease & Desist Investigations of FBI and Obama-Era Corruption

Fox News in recent days told its top reporters to cease and desist working on any investigative stories that expose FBI corruption and probes of wrongdoing during the Barack Obama administration.

“This place has gone downhill fast,” a well-placed Fox insider said. “Basically we all have been told all Fox wants is to cover breaking news and have pundits talk about breaking news live from news published by other outlets.

So the format Fox wants for the future is network personalities talking about the news other people break, not Fox.”

That format does not include investigative or enterprising journalism, another Fox source confirmed.

“Fox quit, threw in the towel,” the second source said. “The Murdochs don’t want to make any waves during their bid to purchase Sky News and this is the direction Fox is going. No original investigative pieces.”

Trump vs. the Fed: America sacrificed at the NWO altar

A battle between Trump and the Fed serves a couple of purposes; firstly, it provides cover for the dismantling of the U.S. stocks and the U.S. dollar, just as the trade war (also blamed on Trump) provides cover for the same. A conflict between the president of the United States and the Fed would lead to substantial doubt in markets over the safety of investment in U.S. equities, debt and currency.

Catholic Priest Asks "So Why Are So Many Christians Still Against Migrants And Refugees?" (VIDEO)

Fr. Martin discusses Christians who use the bible to justify their position. There are a few problems with his position. First off is that he begins his video with the phrase "Why do some people HATE REFUGEES?" It's dishonest and disingenuous to characterize people opposed to mass, unchecked immigration as those who "hate refugees." Second is the presumption that all of these cases are legitimate asylum cases, which is a stretch at best. I also outline what the Catholic Catechism actually states on immigration, which is that 'Immigrants are obliged" to respect the country that receives them, and to "obey its laws". Also, a shocking official document from U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops on immigration, which actually states that a "duty of government is to secure one's border and enforce the law for the sake of the common good."(!)

John Brennan, Melting Down and Covering Up

On Twitter this week, Brennan cartoonishly declaimed, “Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to and exceeds the threshold of high crimes and misdemeanors. It was nothing short of treasonous. Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin.”

Because it is 2018, Brennan was never asked to explain exactly how a press conference exceeds the threshold of high crimes and misdemeanors the Constitution sets for impeachment, nor was he asked to lay a few cards on the table showing what Putin has on Trump. No, Brennan is a man of his times, all bluster and noise, knowing that so long as he says what a significant part of the country apparently believes—that the president of the United States is under the control of the Kremlin—he will never be challenged.

Trump clobbers Washington Post over claim he's impatient with pace of North Korea nuke talks as he warns owner Bezos's Amazon that Post Office might end its cheap shipping rates

Donald Trump lashed out at The Washington Post on Monday for a weekend story claiming he's growing impatient with the plodding pace of North Korean nuclear negotiations.

And he threatened the acclaimed newspaper's owner, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, with a possible shipping rate hike from the U.S. Postal Service as payback.

The Post reported in a front-page Sunday feature that the president 'has fumed at his aides in private' because he has been forced to accept the diplomatic realpolitik of slow progress with America's demands for a denuclearlized Korean peninsula.

Even as Trump has claimed negotiations are continuing, according to the Post's unnamed sources, Pyongyang has canceled follow-up meetings and cut off some communications with the U.S. as its ties with South Korea and China have improved.

No matter, Trump seemed to be saying on Monday, blaming the Post and threatening its sister company Amazon instead of Kim Jong-un for gumming up the works.

The evacuation of the White Helmets through Israel raises suspicions

The timing of the evacuation and the readiness of the Israeli government to assist have added to the suspicions. Even those who have in the past brushed off allegations leveled against the White Helmets are now raising questions. Israel is not known for its cordiality towards the Arabs in general, it has only been friendly to those who have assisted in its military and political objectives. Skeptics have argued that this latest decision has given credence to some accusations leveled against the White Helmets. Importantly, according to some observers, this decision also rubbishes claims that the White Helmets have been impartial in the conflict in Syria. Why was special treatment granted to them amidst thousands of similar requests from other organisations and civilians?

Sweden Investing Millions to Teach Migrants Not to Rape

The Swedish government is in the process of developing a website for teaching African and Middle Eastern migrant about consensual sex.

Lessons on the site include teaching the definition of rape.

“To do something sexually with someone who does not want it is a sexual abuse”, it says.

The Obama FBI PAID FOR the Phony Trump pee-pee dossier — Then used the junk memo to spy on the Trump campaign–

Rep. Ron DeSantis asked Rosenstein,

“The Russia investigation. Who started it? Who was the agent? Was it Strzok who started it? Who opened the case?”

Rosenstein fidgeted as he answered,

“That matter is under review by the Intelligence Committee and there is nothing that I can talk about publicly regarding the initiation of the investigation.”

Then DeSantis point blank asked rotten Rosenstein if the FBI paid for Hillary’s garbage dossier.

“I’m not in position to answer that question,” Rosenstein answered.

“Do you know the answer to the question?” DeSantis asked.

“I believe I know the answer but uh the Intelligence Committee is the appropriate committee-” Rosenstein smugly said.

Rep. DeSantis interrupted Rosenstein and ripped into him—

“That’s not true! We have oversight over your department and the FBI and whether public funds were spent on a dossier-that’s not something that is classified! We have every right to that information. You should provide it,”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That's it; those governmental institutions which were supposed to be above and beyond a deep politicization of the sytem, the DOJ and FBI, have been hopelessly corrupted by the Clinton/Obama Cabal.

That they believe that they both are worthy of America's trust and respect any more, after these horrific, abominable revelations, is an absolute, and complete joke.

Never, Ever Threaten the US Again': Trump Fires Back at Rouhani's Threats

On Sunday Iranian President Hassan Rouhani urged his US counterpart Donald Trump to stop playing with fire, referring to Washington's calls for its allies to completely abandon imports of Iranian oil by early November.

US President Donald Trump warned Tehran on Sunday of consequences "the likes of which few throughout history have ever suffered," if the country threatens the United States.

The Iranian president said earlier that a "war with Iran is the mother of all wars," but did not rule out peace between the two countries.

"Today, speaking with US has no meaning except surrender and end of people's achievements. Mr. Trump! We are the people of dignity and guarantor of security of the waterway of the region throughout the history. Don't play with the lion's tail; you will regret it," Rouhani said at a meeting with Iranian diplomats as quoted by the presidential office.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As I type this, I am watching a crawl on Faux News, indicating that President Trump is "very happy" with progress on North Korea (whatever that is, is apparently not ready for public consumption right now).

It appears that his "gruesome twosome" supporters, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu and Sheldon Adelson, have shifted his military outrage elsewhere, and that appears to be against Iran.

But this escalating "war of words" by President Trump with Iran, and any country which would buy Iranian oil by 4 November, telegraphs the following to me.

The White House, Pentagon, and State Department, are ramping up the demonization of Iran, in order to "justify" a war against it.

Those military actions will most probably happen on, or just after, the US-imposed "drop dead" date for countries wanting to buy Iranian oil.

Trump Pressing Allies to Quite Importing Iranian Oil by 4 November

In looking at the calendar, I see we are at 23 July; this gives potential buyers precisely 103 days to stockpile Iranian oil, if they so choose.

IF the US and Israel are planning a decap strike against Tehran, it will have to be both quick, and massive. Troops are going to have to be predeployed and in position in and around Saudi Arabia; Iraq; Israel; and the Persian Gulf. Massive troop movements will be seen to happen, if this is the plan.

If this is in the works, however, what will Russia do, as Russia shares both a border with Iran, and a tremendous history with it?!?

My thought is that Putin will stand down here, let the regime change happen, and negotiate with whatever government takes over in Iran.

And what about the timing of this US government dictat?!?

The US mid-terms are on 6 November this year. My bet is that President Trump will act decisively on Monday, 5 November, to cement the Republican majority in Congress, as Americans have been reluctant to change governmental leadership in a war situation.

I wish to hell I could be a little less cynical here; but I cannot.

F-35 STEALTH JET MODERNIZATION PROGRAM WILL ALLOW FOR DIRECTED ENERGY WEAPONS

Pratt & Whitney, a division of United Technologies corp., announced last Thursday a ‘Growth Option 2.0’ upgrade for the F135 engine, which powers the fifth-generation Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II, that could provide increased power and thermal management system (PTMS) capacity.

“As the F-35 program moves forward with the Continuous Capability Development and Delivery (C2D2) strategy, we strive to stay in front of propulsion advances needed to enable F-35 modernization,” said Matthew Bromberg, president, Pratt & Whitney Military Engines. “We’re continuously assessing customer needs and responding with technology options to keep them ahead of evolving threats.”

The question which must be asked is, not why to the Chinese and Russian military have these aircraft, which perform as advertised, but why the US military does not; and the answer goes back to the absolutely perverse, and money-corrupted system of American military procurement.

You see, the "Captains of Industry" are of a corporate culture where, because of all the money liberally sprinkled on both sides of the aisle in Congress in order to get military contracts, they believe that product can be delayed until it has been rendered obsolete before being deployed in the field; that their products do not have to work as advertised; and cost overruns, soaking the taxpayers for far over the original cost estimates, are absolutely acceptible.

This mind set has to change, and quickly, for the US to even begin to regain its weapons technology end.

And I think that the only two things which will do it, is legislation forbidding weapons manufacturers from contributing one cent to state and national elections, and making sure, in each weapons contract, it is spelled out that if products are delivered late; do not function as advertised; and are attached to outrageous cost overruns, the CEOs of those companies who have not delivered the best possible equipment to our men and women in uniform, face hard jail. time.

Yes, I understand that such legislation will probably pass state and the Federal legislatures at the moment pigs discover they are aerodynamic; but it will cure the problem here.

GREAT NATIONS ARE DESTROYED BY BEING PULLED INTO WARS TO DEFEND TINY ONES

NATO's obsession with pulling in as many small, unstable and potentially extremist countries in Eastern Europe as possible makes a world war inevitable rather than deterring one.

The reason for this could not be more simple or clear: Small countries start world wars and destroy the empires and great nations that go to war to defend them.

Belgium doomed England and Serbia doomed Russia in 1914.

The Russian Empire, the largest nation in the world in terms of area and the third largest after the British Empire and China in terms of population at the time, went to war to defend Serbia from invasion by Austria-Hungary.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This so reminds me of the phrase: "Those who do not learn from history...are doomed to repeat it."

That is what we are witnessing with NATO's, and the US Government's, "fatal attraction" to these countries in Eastern Europe, is a profound lack of the understanding of this history.

This nearly insures that a war with Russia will happen; the only question is, when.

And just two days ago, we have this corroborating "gem" from theindependent.uk.com:

THE IMPERIAL NAIVETE OF THE AMERICAN PUBLIC

The nation's premier corporate profit engines / social media giants are the ideal platforms for undermining the U.S. via the sowing of disintegration.

Whether it's stated or not, one source of the inchoate outrage triggered by Russian-sourced purchases of adverts on Facebook in 2016 (i.e. "meddling in our election") is the sense that the U.S. is sacrosanct due to our innate moral goodness and our Imperial Project: never mind that the intelligence agencies of all great powers (including the U.S.) meddle in the domestic affairs and elections of other nations, including those of allies as well as geopolitical rivals-- no other great power should ever meddle with U.S. domestic affairs and elections.

In effect, meddling in the domestic affairs and elections of other nations is the raison d'etre of all great power intelligence agencies:

PUBLIC SUPPORT FOR MUELLER INVESTIGATION WANING

As President Trump's approval rating rises (despite the 'resistance' best efforts), Americans are losing support for special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

Mueller oversees the investigation into Russia’s efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election, and he also examines whether the Russian government worked with Trump during the election. The special counsel investigation began when President Trump fired former FBI director James Comey.

As Statista's Sarah Feldman notes, Mueller’s inquiry has been going on for over a year now.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This "investigation", which ultimately originated as an industrial strength brain fart in the febrile mind of John Podesta, was never about actual alleged "Russian collusion" with the Trump Election Team; this was always about "getting" President Trump, and by any means necessary, so that he would be out of office by the 2020 elections, thus thrusting Clinton back into the race as the "inevitable" candidate and winner, and steam-rolling any Republican "sacrificial lamb" the GOP could get to run, into presidential oblivion.

This approach has not worked, and will not work.

None of the fundamentals which voters found morally and conceptually unattractive about Hillary Rodam Clinton have changed; she cannot be rebranded, and still carries more baggage than does Kim Dardashian on a photo shoot.

IF the DNC has any chance for any kind of victory in 2020, it needs a Clintonectomy; there, Tom Lopez, I said that.

Israel launches U.S.-backed missile shield on Syria frontier, Russia sends envoys

Israel launched its newest air defense system on Monday on the Syrian frontier, where Damascus’s Russian-backed forces have been routing rebels, as Moscow sent envoys for what it called “urgent” talks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Netanyahu planned to meet Russia’s foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov, and its armed forces chief, General Valery Gerasimov, later in the day, a visit the Israeli leader said was arranged last week at the request of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Israel is on high alert as Syrian President Bashar al-Assad regains ground from rebels in the southwest of the country, bringing his forces close to the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

In a sign of high tensions, Israel launched two David’s Sling interceptor missiles at rockets which it said fell inside Syrian territory and were part of the internal fighting there.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In having ordered these missiles launched into Syria at this time, it appears that Netanyahu is flipping the proverbial "bird" at Russia's President Putin; and after all the work Putin and Russia have put into reclaiming Syria from the US armed/funded "rebels", this is somethng, I believe, that Putin will tell Netnayahu he will no longer tolerate.

What the cost of this to Israel might be, in a brand new game, vis a vis the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, I do not know; but Netanyahu may well be about to understand that he can no longer attack a sovereign state with impunity any more.

ISRAEL EVACAUTES WHITE HELMETS’ MEMBERS FROM SOUTHERN SYRIA

During the past three days, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allies entered up to 40 villages and settlements in the southern provinces of Quneitra and Daraa after militants, mostly members of Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda) and the Free Syrian Army (FSA) had surrendered in the area.

A few batches of radical militants and their families, consisting of dozens of buses, already left southern Syria towards the militant-held part of Idlib province. Militants also handed over more than 10 battle tanks to the SAA. On July 23, militants continued surrendering weapons to government forces and leaving towards Idlib.

Israel transported several hundred of the White Helmets and their families from the southwestern part of Syria to Jordan overnight July 21, the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) reported saying this move was “a humanitarian effort” at the request of the US and European countries.

Gallup: Gun Control Not High on List of Problems

Gallup’s July survey found that the number of Americans who cited guns or gun control as the most important problem facing America had returned to levels similar to before the shooting in Parkland, Fla. This month, just two percent of Americans say guns and gun control are the most important problem. It was only a few short months ago that a record number of Americans cited guns as the most important problem (April, 13%). Guns aren’t mentioned at all in the Gallup article on the July survey – not even in the section about “Americans’ Views of the Top Problem Facing the U.S.”

White Helmets "Rescued" By Israel Via Golan Heights In Overnight Operation

Overnight Saturday Israel evacuated 800 White Helmets members and their families from southern Syria in an operation that took them briefly into Israeli territory and then on to Jordan, where they are expected to be resettled in Britain, Canada, and Germany, according to officials in Amman.

The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) confirmed Israel's spearheading the move at the request of the United States and European governments. The dead of night operation comes a week after reports first surfaced that serious discussions were held on the matter during the July 11-12 NATO summit in Brussels.

The IDF official twitter account posted the following statement: "Following an Israeli Government directive and at the request of the United States and additional European countries, the IDF recently completed a humanitarian effort to rescue members of a Syrian civil organization and their families."

Poll reveals near 60% of Russians see Czar’s family homicide as atrocity

Most Russians believe the murder of the last Russian Czar, Nicholas II, and his family members in 1918 had no justification, describing it as a monstrous crime rather than an act of retribution, a poll conducted by the Russian Public Opinion Research Center ahead of the centenary of the execution of the Royal family showed on Monday. "Most Russians (57%) believe that the execution of the Royal family is a heinous unjustified crime ... Russians generally see Nicholas II in a positive light (43%).

An Interview With General Otto Ernst Remer

The initial successes of our forces against the Soviets were due to the fact that the Russians were not stationed in defense positions, but were instead positioned right at the front for attack, which made it possible for us to quickly encircle large Soviet forces. Thus, in the first weeks of the war, we were able to capture more than three million prisoners of war as well as enormous quantities of war equipment, all of which was on the frontier, positioned for attack. That's the truth of the matter, which can be proven.

Conspiracy of Silence: Israeli Government Still Covering Up Historic Atrocities

In 1948, just prior to the foundation of Israel, six Polish Christians were executed without trial in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem by the fledgling country's Jewish army, the Haganah. An investigative analysis on the killings - dubbed the Riftin Report - was compiled for future Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion, but has never been made public ... The Riftin Report saga is a palpable microcosm of the wider issue of Israeli government determination to suppress archival material implicating the state in atrocities carried out against civilians when the country was in its infancy ... The Military Court of Appeals is currently reviewing a historian's request to declassify files relating to the 1956 Kafr Qasim massacre ... Authorities likewise repeatedly blocked attempts to declassify files related to the 1948 Deir Yassin massacre .

“It’s All Fake” – Reality TV That Masquerades As American Politics

Much like the fabricated universe in Peter Weir’s 1998 film The Truman Show, in which a man’s life is the basis for an elaborately staged television show aimed at selling products and procuring ratings, the political scene in the United States has devolved over the years into a carefully calibrated exercise in how to manipulate, polarize, propagandize and control a population. -- Likewise, “The Trump Show” keeps the citizenry distracted, diverted and divided. -- This is the magic of the reality TV programming that passes for politics today.

US Adds Another $200 Million to Ukraine Military Aid

US officials say they will not accept any referendum in breakaway Eastern Ukraine about accepting an offer of autonomy as part of Ukraine. They say no vote would be legitimate unless the rebels surrender first, and the vote is held under the auspices of central government rule.

The referendum is being pushed by Russia as a solution to the Eastern Ukraine war, which has been in a state of on-again, off-again ceasefire for years. Russia generally supports the rebels, while the US has been backing the government.

Underscoring that the US is backing a solution that doesn’t involve a free, internationally supervised election, the Pentagon announced Friday that they are adding another $200 million to military aid to the Ukraine. They say this is intended to improve Ukraine’s military capabilities.

HOW A ONE-WORD LOOPHOLE WILL MAKE IT EASIER FOR THE U.S. TO SELL WEAPONS TO GOVERNMENTS THAT KILL CIVILIANS

When it was issued in April, the Trump administration’s Conventional Arms Transfer policy was widely panned by critics for prioritizing the profits of weapons companies ahead of transparency and human rights concerns. The White House was blunt about its intentions, promising that the executive branch would “advocate strongly on behalf of United States companies.”

But one change in particular may make it easier for American companies to sell weapons to governments that routinely kill civilians in conflicts by discounting killings that the governments claim are unintentional. The change could have a significant impact on sales to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates — the top two U.S. weapons clients — both of which are engaged in a destructive bombing campaign in Yemen.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears that our President has become the Merchant of Death in Chief, with this change.

So having done this as this country's President, logic dictates that neither the US Deep State, nor the Military Industrial Complex can seriously label him a "traitor" regarding the Helsinki Summit; hell, the man is selling American weapons as quickly and as furiously as is humanly possible, right?!?

The two, hawking American weapons, and being a traitor, are mutually exclusive, folks.

No can do.

So now, every global tinpot dictator, Like Saudi Arabia's Prince bin Salman, The Butcher of Yemen, can buy all the US weaons it wants, because it can now characterize every assassination its military creates in Yemen as "accidental".

Let me show you what these "accidental" assassinations in Yemen look like, courtesy of the Saudi Military, enabled by US weapons, refueling, and guidance.

Indicted Russian Company Concord Management Taunts Mueller – Cites Kavanaugh Decision to Argue Junk Bot Case be Dismissed

Indicted Russian company Concord Management taunted Mueller this week, perhaps as a foreshadowing of what’s to come.

Concord’s lawyers cited Trump’s SCOTUS nominee, Kavanaugh’s decision from a 2011 case, Bluman v. Federal Election Commission, as their argument to have Mueller’s junk bot case dismissed.

In fact, Kavanaugh said the government would have to prove that foreign nationals had knowledge of the law’s restrictions before seeking criminal charges. And he said the ban did not include foreign spending on “issue advocacy and speaking out on issues of public policy,” SF Gate reported.

A Russian company accused by special counsel Robert Mueller III of being part of an online operation to disrupt the 2016 presidential campaign is leaning in part on a decision by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh to argue that the charge against it should be thrown out.

MGM turns to never-tested law to sue Vegas shooting victims

The unprecedented move from MGM Resorts International to sue hundreds of victims of last year’s mass shooting in Las Vegas using an obscure U.S. law never tested in court has been framed by the casino-operator as an effort to avoid years of costly litigation — but the legal maneuver may not play out that way.

The company is not seeking money in the lawsuits filed in at least seven states over the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history. Instead, it wants federal courts to declare that it has no liability to survivors or families of slain victims under a federal law enacted after the Sept. 11 terror attacks.

MGM argues that the Oct. 1 shooting met two conditions of the law: it qualifies as an act of terrorism and federally certified security services were used at the venue where 22,000 concertgoers were gathered as gunfire rained down from the company’s Mandalay Bay casino-resort.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I don't know who , in the byzantine bowels of the MGM legal system, signed off on this use of this law against the victims of this shooting; but the optics here are completely horrific.

What it may do is negatively impact the financial health of MGM, by inspiring a call for a boycott of ALL things MGM, and for a long basis: I don't think that the attorneys who were so quick to grab this as their strategy, thought the whole thing through.

And if Homeland Security does NOT determine that the act was, "an act of terrorism", this strategy is toast.

CNN host Cuomo says Trump's aversion to 'fake news media' means he hates America

CNN has always been at daggers' points with Donald Trump, however, Chris Cuomo took the antagonism to a new level when he implied that the mainstream media is the true embodiment of America and hating it means hating the country.

In CNN World, criticizing mainstream media apparently equals betraying the very principles the nation stands on. At least, that was the message delivered by CNN's 'Cuomo Prime Time' host Chris Cuomo when he attacked Trump for his fresh Twitter rant against "fake news" in the wake of the Helsinki summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin. The post-meeting press conference of the two leaders saw mainstream media explode with condemnation and allegations of treason against Trump after he appeared to cast doubt on Russia's meddling in the US elections.

c) The FBI, who knew about this early in 2016, chose to ignore this intelligence and keep it from the American public, because to have acted upon it would have killed Mrs Clinton’s chances of running for President.

d) Mrs Clinton should be in prison (but then, you probably knew that anyway).

Trump-Putin Summit Brings Out Deep State “Shadow Government” Threats

Will President Trump’s meeting with Putin lead to a coup by “shadow government” operatives of the CIA, State Department, and other federal agencies and departments? That’s what a former top-level Deep State official ominously seemed to be hinting at — and promoting — in a blistering CNN “analysis.” President Trump’s recent European tour, culminating in his summit with Vladimir Putin, sent the Deep State’s political and media operatives into Trump Derangement Syndrome overdrive. They still have not recovered; the torrent of vituperation they orchestrated and unleashed on President Trump before, during, and after his July 10-16 excursion to London, Brussels, and Helsinki continues to escalate.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To label President Trump a traitor" because of his wish to ratchet down tensions with Russia, which he appears to be starting to do, can only be laid at the feet of a dangerously powerful military industrial complex, only concerned the effect on their financial bottom line should peace break out, and not at all about the safety and well being of their brother and sister Americans.

NICARAGUA: ORTEGA BLAMES 'SATANIC SECT' FOR UPRISING AGAINST HIS RULE

Nicaragua’s President Daniel Ortega has hit out at what he has claimed is a “murderous, coup-mongering satanic sect” behind a three-month uprising against his rule that has left more than 300 dead.

There is growing international consensus that Ortega’s own forces and pro-government militias are responsible for the overwhelming majority of the violence that has gripped Nicaragua since protests erupted in April.

However, during a pro-government rally in Managua on Thursday, Ortega sought to shift blame for the bloodshed on to the “diabolical force” he claimed was part of a US-backed conspiracy to topple him.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Ortega, a word, please: the only thing "diabolical" in your country, are the living conditions in which your citizens find themselves at this time, under your reign.
