US May Be Preparing for 'Preemptive Strike' on Syria Amid Chemical Weapons Claim

The United States might be preparing for a "preemptive" attack on Syrian government troops as the White House warned of a possible chemical attack allegedly planned by Damascus, senior Russian lawmaker Konstantin Kosachev said Tuesday.

Earlier in the day, the White House claimed that Washington had identified "potential preparations" for a chemical attack by Syrian President Bashar Assad’s forces.

The Kremlin commented on the claims and said that it considers US' threats against Syrian legitimate leadership to be "unacceptable." Damascus also denied the information.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think the Russian analysis, presented here at sputniknews.com, is completely reasonable.

We are most likely looking at an horrific false flag operation, courtesy of the US military and various Us alphabet soup agencies in Syria, to be blamed on the Syrian government, as the justification for a full-scale invasion of Syria, in order to attempt regime change in Damascus.

But the questions I would have to ask about such a scenario are:

1. Why would al-Assad do this when his troops are winning against ISIS on the Ground?!?

2. Weren't Syria's chemical weapons completely destroyed under a Russian brokered, and UN-supervised program several years ago?!?

Of course, such an invasion most probably means war with Russia, but what does the American Deep State care about the good of We the People?!? The short answer is, absolutely nothing.

They have their elaborate bunkers, and top of the line survival gear in hand; the rest of us can just die of radiation sickness, and they won't give a damn.

This... is officially insane, and the fact that the US government collectively thinks, for one millisecond, that the American people would believe this codswallop, demonstrates that they have learned utterly nothing from having lied this country into the the military misadventures which are still with us, Afghanistan and Iraq.

Another Massive Ransomware Outbreak Is Going Global Fast

Ukraine's government, National Bank and biggest power companies all warned of cyberattacks Tuesday. Airports and metro services in the country were also reportedly affected, though it appears they're victims of another massive ransomware outbreak that's spreading across the world fast and hitting a significant number of critical infrastructure providers.

Whispers of WannaCry abound, though security experts said a different breed, named Petya, was to blame. "[We're seeing] several thousands of infection attempts at the moment, comparable in size to WannaCry's first hours," said Kaspersky Lab's Costin Raiu. "We are seeing infections from many different countries." One firm, BitDefender, said it believed a similar strain called GoldenEye was actually responsible. Later, security firms, including Kaspersky and Avast, said the malware responsible was actually an entirely new ransomware that had borrowed Petya code.

Hersh’s new Syria revelations buried from view

Paradoxically, over the past decade, as social media has created a more democratic platform for information dissemination, the corporate media has grown ever more fearful of a truly independent figure like Hersh. The potential reach of his stories could now be enormously magnified by social media. As a result, he has been increasingly marginalised and his work denigrated. By denying him the credibility of a “respectable” mainstream platform, he can be dismissed for the first time in his career as a crank and charlatan. A purveyor of fake news.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. Hersh, should you want to take us up on it, you would always be welcome to post your articles here at WRH.

Mike and I have a great deal of respect for your work, over the years, and understand, full well, the courage it takes not to ape the government's "party line" when there is a specific agenda they wish to accomplish, and the consequences of "not playing along", even when such an agenda is 100% fact free.

The Age of No Privacy: The Surveillance State Shifts Into High Gear

The government has become an expert in finding ways to sidestep what it considers “inconvenient laws” aimed at ensuring accountability and thereby bringing about government transparency and protecting citizen privacy.

Indeed, it has mastered the art of stealth maneuvers and end-runs around the Constitution.

It knows all too well how to hide its nefarious, covert, clandestine activities behind the classified language of national security and terrorism. And when that doesn’t suffice, it obfuscates, complicates, stymies or just plain bamboozles the public into remaining in the dark.

Case in point: the National Security Agency (NSA) has been diverting “Internet traffic, normally safeguarded by constitutional protections, overseas in order to conduct unrestrained data collection on Americans.”

It’s extraordinary rendition all over again, only this time it’s surveillance instead of torture being outsourced.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The dictatorial powers of the Unhinged, Surveilled State of America, now knows no bounds, in terms of electronic communications, and has, for all intents and purposes, thoroughly nullified the 4th Amendment to the Constitution, preventing Americans from having to deal with unreasonable search and seizure.

House Spending Bill Threatens to Suspend Nuclear Treaty With Russia: Bill Also Funds Missiles Banned by the Treaty

Tensions between the US and Russia touch a lot of fronts, including the 1987 Intermediate Nuclear Forces Treaty. The treaty forbids the development of intermediate range conventional and nuclear missiles, and there have been allegations one of the missiles tested by Russia is in violation of this treaty.

Intermediate Nuclear Forces Treaty signed in 1987
Russia has denied this is the case, but the House of Representatives appears uninterested in arguing the point, instead adding multiple lines to the nearly $700 billion military spending bill that was advanced in committee today, threatening to withdraw the US from the treaty, and funding US development of missiles that would deliberately violate it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This ... is an officially insane idea, and more US governmental demonisation of Russia, as a prelude to some kind of an attack against it, either in Syria; Iran; or perhaps (God forbid) a direct attack against it by the NATO military which has been encircling it, geographically, for more than the last year or so.

Top Senator Blocks Gulf Arms Sales Over Qatar Crisis

While previous Senate efforts to limit US arms sales to Saudi Arabia over human rights concerns narrowly failed, Senate Foreign Affairs Committee chair Bob Corker (R – TN) has now withheld all consent for US arms sales to not just Saudi Arabia, but to the other Gulf Arab states, citing the ongoing Qatar crisis.

Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and Egypt have all imposed a blockade on Qatar over the past several weeks, and have issued a long list of demands for Qatar to comply with as a condition for lifting it. Sen. Corker warned that this is undermining the ISIS war.

That’s been a concern from the beginning of the crisis, since the largest US military base in the Middle East is in Qatar, and much of the air war in Syria is based out of Qatar. So far,the Pentagon has insisted that hasn’t been impacted, but the longer the situation goes unresolved, the more likely it’s going to be a problem.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I sense that this is just a small hiccup in President Trump's plans to sell billions in weapons to Saudi Arabia, as well as to other Middle Eastern "bastions of democracy" and will be overcome quickly.

The Unsubstantiated Medical-Science Proofs About Vaccines

By Catherine J. Frompovich

Allopathic medicine likes to crow about its scientific prowess; they call it “science-based medicine.” Well, that self-proclaimed, and rather dubious accolade, falls flat on its face, and even comes up with either egg or slimy pond scum mud on the faces of all those who salute, promote and mandate neurotoxic vaccines and their malevolent pseudoscience.

The most accurate case in point—actually there are two I will talk about—is the implicit fact that the practice of multi-valent vaccines given to infants as young as 2 months of age (and also at 4 and 6 months) are not, have not, and probably never will be tested for what’s commonly understood and known as “cumulative effects.” Is there some sort of scientific disconnect when it comes to testing vaccines for cumulative effects?...

Kremlin spokesman says Putin and Trump will meet in Hamburg

No specific decisions have been made yet concerning the upcoming meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and his US counterpart Donald Trump due in Hamburg, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This meeting cannot possibly come soon enough.

However, if President Trump is persuaded by his advisors to "stiff" Putin at the G-20, all hell could break loose in this world, in terms of a US war against Syria and Iran (which means, potentially, war with Russia) and I really would not like to see that happen.

“In the aftermath of the retraction of a story published on CNN.com, CNN has accepted the resignation of the employees involved in the story’s publication,” a network spokesperson told TheWrap in a statement.

"Tick, Tick, Tick" Comey Ally Scrambles To Explain Why "Next Trump Bombshell" Didn't Arrive Today

As we noted late last week, Benjamin Wittes, the Brookings Institution senior fellow and noted ally of former FBI Director James Comey, took to twitter to claim that another “bombshell” story, presumably related to the multiple investigations into whether the Trump camp colluded with the Russians, was in the works. However, unlike previous warnings from Wittes, this one contained a caveat: the “fuse” on the story is of an uncertain length, and that the next salvo could arrive as soon as Monday.

But with no major bombshell forthcoming, Wittes returned to Twitter Monday to offer a few clarifications.

Great recession fears as bankers warn next global crash could arrive 'with a vengeance'

A new financial crisis is brewing in the emerging economies and it could hit “with a vengeance”, an influential group of central bankers has warned.

Emerging markets such as China are showing the same signs that their economies are overheating as the US and the UK demonstrated before the financial crisis of 2007-08, according to the annual report of the Bank for International Settlements (BIS).

Claudio Borio, the head of the BIS monetary and economic department, said a new recession could come “with a vengeance” and “the end may come to resemble more closely a financial boom gone wrong”.

The BIS, which is sometimes known as the central bank for central banks and counts Bank of England Governor Mark Carney among its members, warned of trouble ahead for the world economy.

It predicted that central banks would be forced to raise interest rates after years of record lows in order to combat inflation which will “smother” growth.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF you can, please get your credit card balances as low as you can, because I can see a massive interest hike coming out of any global economic crisis which might be coming.

Trump Involvement In Syria Missile Strike Is A Red Herring: It Was Always The Deep State

By Brandon Turbeville

On June 25, veteran journalist Seymour Hersh released a bombshell article revealing a number of facets regarding the alleged chemical attack in Khan Sheikhoun, Syria and the resulting volley of Tomahawk missiles fired by the United States at the al-Sha’aryat airbase in response. Hersh’s article provides the reader with what many of us already knew and wrote about at the time; i.e. that the Syrian military did not conduct a chemical weapons attack and that the United States was fully aware of that fact. Still, the U.S. government opted to use the attack as a justification for launching 59 Tomahawk missiles at a Syrian airbase that resulted in the deaths of Syrian soldiers, civilians, and children from the nearby village...

NASA says it HASN'T found alien life following video claims by hacker group Anonymous

The hacker collective Anonymous set conspiracy theorists abuzz this week after it claimed NASA is on the verge of announcing the discovery of alien life.

But, NASA has now confirmed that no such announcement is on the way.
Zurbuchen took to Twitter today to assure that the reports were false, and says we still do not know if we are alone in the universe.

FORMER CLINTON FOUNDATION DONORS FLOCKING TO THE MCCAIN INSTITUTE

In years past, the Clinton Foundation enjoyed significant donations from individuals and countries that sought to purchase influence in Washington. But now, the McCain Institute is their new darling, having received large sums from the likes of George Soros and Saudi Arabia.

With the Clinton Foundation standing at the heart of the many scandals that dogged Hillary Clinton’s failed 2016 presidential campaign, it was no small wonder that donations to her family’s controversial charity began to dry up soon after her loss last November. Just weeks after the election, donations to the foundation from foreign governments plummeted, some as much as 87 percent, while donations from the corporate sector dropped by 37 percent.

HALEY SAYS WARNING TO SYRIA ALSO AIMED AT RUSSIA AND IRAN

A warning from the White House to Syrian President Bashar Assad about another possible chemical weapons attack was also aimed at two of Assad's key backers, Russia and Iran, the U.S ambassador to the United Nations said Tuesday.

During testimony before the House panel on foreign operations, Nikki Haley also called Assad "barbaric" and said she can't envision a "healthy Syria" if he remains in power.

"The goal is at this point not just to send Assad a message, but to send Russia and Iran a message," Haley said. "That if this happens again, we are putting you on notice. My hope is that the president's warning will certainly get Iran and Russia to take a second look, and I hope that it will caution Assad."

US-led coalition must stop ‘very dangerous game’ of sparing Al-Nusra in Syria – Lavrov

Russian FM Sergey Lavrov has accused the US-led anti-terrorist coalition of being reluctant to bomb positions of the former Al-Nusra Front in Syria, and has urged them to ditch "double standards" for the sake of an “uncompromising” fight against terrorism.

"There is a strong impression, based on our fight with terrorism in Syria, that the so-called Al-Nusra [Front], or whatever it is called now, is every time spared by the coalition forces headed by the United States and its allies," Lavrov said, speaking at a press conference in Moscow.

The foreign minister went on to say that "new evidence has emerged in the past few days" indicating that the US-led international forces continue "to take the heat off" the former Al-Qaeda offshoot in Syria.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Foreign Minister Lavrov, a word please.

Thinking Americans (who have utterly zero control over the foreign policy of the Unhinged, Surveilled States of Amerika) understand fully that the US government has been supporting ISIS all along, in order to effect regime change in Damascus.

Why is the US supporting ISIS in Syria while opposing it in Iraq?

Syria accuses Israel and the US of supporting ISIS

Russia, Turkey accuse the US of supporting ISIS in Syria

The US continues to support ISIS in Syria

Al Assad is right:
the US Air Force is Supporting ISIS attacks in Syria and Iraq.

And today, the US Ambassador to the UN made the following, absolutely astonishingly stupid claim:

The White House announced late Monday that Syria may be planning another chemical weapons attack that “will likely result in the mass murder of civilians.” In a statement released on Monday night, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said the U.S. had found “potential” evidence that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad was preparing to conduct an attack similar to the one carried out on April 4 that killed dozens of civilians, including children. “The United States has identified potential preparations for another chemical weapons attack by the Assad regime that would likely result in the mass murder of civilians, including innocent children,” the statement said. “The activities are similar to preparations the regime made before its April 4, 2017 chemical weapons attack.” “If … Mr. Assad conducts another mass murder attack using chemical weapons, he and his military will pay a heavy price,” the statement warned.

The article then went on to say: "United States ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley noted on Monday Assad's two main military backers, Russia and Iran, would share responsibility for any further attacks against Syrian civilians."

I am certain you noted the following article, written by the award-winning journalist, Seymour Hersh, who I respect highly, in which he stated the following:

Seymour Hersh: Trump Ignored Intelligence On Syrian Chemical Attack, Bombed Anyway

What we have here, Foreign Minister Lavrov, is an absolute recipe for global catastrophe, and a world war.

We have a smart, but highly impulsive, and highly naive President in Trump; unfortunately, he appears to have been completely absorbed by the American Deep State, since his inauguration.

The Deep State is looking for any excuse to start a war against Russia and China, to deflect the rise of the ruble and Chinese yuan away from the dollar, and use that war as a distraction, and potentially, the excuse, for the coming economic crash in this country.

So what Ambassador Haley and the White House are telegraphing, in these statements, is that they are willing to create a "false flag" in Syria, as a the "justification" for going in and attempting to create regime change in Damascus, then attempting to do it in Iran, which is desperately going to need your military backing to prevent this from happening.

That they think Americans are so utterly stupid as to swallow this codswallop whole, is an absolute insult. The American public are war-weary and war-skeptical, after the US government's horrific military misadventures in Afghanistan and Iraq.

So I really want someone in this administration to tell me, with a straight face, why Assad would even think about doing this now, when he is winning on the ground in Syria; and the short answer is, he wouldn't. And BTW, where are those chemical weapons Ambassador Haley alleges the Syrian government is just ITCHING to use?!?

Do I not remember Russia brokering a deal several years back, in which Syria destroyed all of its chemical weapons, under UN supervision?!?

The Destruction of Syria's chemical weapons

In short, Minister Lavrov, the Deep State of the Unhinged, Surveilled States of America is desperately attempting to "groom" the American public for another, horrific war, which the American people do not want, nor can they afford, at any level.

The future of the Syrian people...should belong to the Syrian people, and not some outside agency of forced regime change, to the supposed benefit of Israel and the US.

I am watching, in the most sang froid, analytical way, the massive uptick of the demonisation of Russia in the US corporate, presstitute media, in a way which is trying to paint your country as the most evil, rotten nation on the planet; again, sir, thinking Americans understand that this is not the case.

You, and President Putin, have been the "poster children" for rational, reasonable resolution of geopolitical differences between countries, and I laud both of you for that.

I truly wish... I could honestly say the same thing about the leadership of my country, but honestly cannot.

U.S. Military Officials: There Was NO Chemical Weapons Attack In Syria … Trump Bombed Syria DESPITE Advice From Military and Intelligence Chiefs

A top U.S. missile and chemical weapons expert has documented for months that the Syrian government did not carry out a chemical weapons attack against civilians, and that contrary claims by the Trump White House, French intelligence services, the New York Times, CNN and other “mainstream” sources are wrong … and worthless propaganda.

Former top military and intelligence officials – including many who warned against the faulty Iraq intelligence in advance of the Iraq war – have long said that the claims that Assad carried out the chemical weapons attacks was bunkum.

Pulitzer-prize winning investigative reporter Seymour Hersh – who broke the stories of the Mai Lai massacre in Vietnam and the Iraq prison torture scandals, which rightfully disgraced the Nixon and Bush administrations’ war-fighting tactics – reported yesterday in the large German publication Weld that U.S. military officials tried to tell Trump that a chemical weapons attack never occurred at all:

A report yesterday by the Pulitzer-prize winning reporter who broke some of the biggest stories of the Vietnam and Iraq wars showed that Trump bombed Syria on April 4th based upon false pretenses.

Specifically, Trump said the Syrian government carried out a chemical weapons attack on civilians. But U.S. military and intelligence officials say that they told Trump there was no evidence for that claim … and they say that what really happened is that Syria bombed Islamic terrorists, and that accidentally released chemicals being stored by the terrorists.

So how does Trump respond to the report?

He doubles down on the bull …

Japan broadcasts TV warning urging citizens to lie on the ground or seek shelter if North Korea launches a NUKE at them

Japan has broadcast a television warning urging citizens to lie on the ground or seek shelter in the event of North Korea launching a nuclear attack.
The government advice also tells people to stay away from windows, protect their heads if they are indoors and to hide behind solid objects if an attack is imminent.

Instructions triggered by Japan's satellite-based J-Alert public warning system will be sent out through speakers installed across the country, the 30-second clip confirms.

The broadcast comes amid heightened tensions between the West and North Korea under dictator Kim Jong-un.

Shock Footage: Protester Shot Dead On Live TV During Venezuelan Riots: Mac Slavo

We’ve repeatedly warned our readers that a collapse of life as we know it in America would quickly devolve into violence, looting and outright anarchy. As the economic landscape in America deteriorates it is likely only a matter of time before millions of starving Americans make their way to the streets in protest. When that happens they’ll be met with a heavily armed response. It’ll start with tear gas and rubber bullets, but that won’t be enough to stave off the starving and hopeless masses, so we can fully expect real bullets to start flying in short order.

To see a real-world example of this one need only turn their attention to Venezuela, where the collapse of their currency has led to hyperinflation to the point that supplies of bare essentials like flour, meat, medicine and toilet paper are unavailable to the general population. The situation has been playing out for several years and it appears to be coming to a head.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Warning: very graphic video, and not for the faint of heart.

That being said, as we have cautioned our readers many, many times: please don't panic: plan. And if you haven't started to prep by now, now is the time to start!!

This needs to translate into: extra storable food; potable water; and extra medications for yourselves and your pets.

You need to find a way to defend your cache with which you are emotionally comfortable.

Figure out what goods and services you can barter.

Create community with those around you who you trust.

Make sure you have a bug out plan, if the excrement hits the ventilator, and find out what your child's school's policy is on releasing your child early from school, and have a plan to reunite with family and friends, should you get separated, should something big hit. Plan your work on this, then work your plan.

“Regime Change” in the Philippines? The CIA’s Cloddish ISIS Attack on Duterte

The only word I find for it is cloddish. I refer to the latest CIA-instigated attempt to initiate regime change against outspoken Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte. The so-called ISIS terror attack in the minerals-rich southern Philippines island of Mindanao, a predominately Muslim part of the mostly Christian nation of 100 million people, took place literally in the midst of President Duterte’s talks in Moscow with Russian President Vladimir Putin. The Duterte Putin talks in turn followed Duterte’s attendance in Beijing on May 15 for the first New Silk Road or Belt Road Forum. America’s colonial asset since 1898 was clearly walking away from the Washington “reservation.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To those in the bowels of power in DC, it is obvious that the Filipino people have utterly no right to vote in someone who is steering the course of his country out of the US sphere of influence, and into those of Russia and China.

Saudi Arabia Conducts Over 50 Air Raids on Yemen in Just 24 Hours

Saudi Arabia decided to honor the final day of Ramadan in typical Saudi fashion by conducting over 50 airstrikes on various Yemeni provinces in just 24 hours.
35 airstrikes were carried out in the province of Marib, slightly east of Sana’a. 14 airstrikes hit various districts of Hajjah province including Midi and Herad. They also carried out three raids in both Taiz and Sa’ada provinces.
Saudi warplanes dropping bombs over various areas of Yemen is certainly nothing new. In fact Yemenis have been living under airstrikes for over 800 days now. But for the past month, Saudi Arabia has drastically increased airstrikes in both numbers and locations.
Yemeni resistance forces have steadily fought back on the ground. Troops in Taiz have been fending off Saudi-backed mercenaries in various parts of Taiz. In northern provinces of Jizan, Najran, and Asir, Yemeni forces have managed to take-out many Saudi-backed troops, weapons facilities, and vehicles.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These US-militarily-enabled bombings, against innocent civilians, are war crimes, pure and simple.

The US collusion with Saudi Arabia in the commission of these war crimes is morally abhorrent, and reeks of failed US foreign policy, when most respected experts, writing on the issues of Yemen, insist that the only possible solution here is political, rather than military.

Yemen faces world's worst cholera outbreak - UN

Yemen is now facing the worst cholera outbreak anywhere in the world, the United Nations has warned.
A statement by UNICEF and the World Health Organization says the number of suspected cholera cases in the war-torn country has exceeded 200,000.
So far more than 1,300 people have died - one quarter of them children - with the death toll expected to rise.
The two UN agencies say they are doing everything they can to stop the outbreak from accelerating.
"We are now facing the worst cholera outbreak in the world," the statement says.
"In just two months, cholera has spread to almost every governorate of this war-torn country," it says, with an estimated 5,000 new cases every day.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Saudis, enabled by US troops, have blocked Yemeni ports, so no food can get in. Consequently, Yemeni children are dying from complications of malnutrition and disease.

Images: Yemeni children dying of malnutrition.

Malnutrition creates a marvelous breeding ground for disease:

And even though yesterday, Saudi Arabia pledged $67 million to address cholera in Yemen Saudi Arabia pledges 67 million to tackle cholera in Yemen, being the sanguine soul I am, I have to wonder if this aid is going to wind up treating only families supporting the ousted Al Hadi regime, as a way to "change loyalty" from the those supporting Houthi rebels.

Although cholera has been not yet been weaponised per say, it has been used as a weapon of war before. So one has to wonder: did Saudi Arabia deliberately contaminate Yemen's water resources, making sure that the cholera and other water-borne diseases would take hold, in order to "appear as Yemen's saviour", after inflicting horrific deaths from two plus years of bombing innocent civilians?!?

Does US have right to data on overseas servers? We’re about to find out

The Justice Department on Friday petitioned the US Supreme Court to step into an international legal thicket, one that asks whether US search warrants extend to data stored on foreign servers. The US government says it has the legal right, with a valid court warrant, to reach into the world's servers with the assistance of the tech sector, no matter where the data is stored.

FURTHER READING
Court ruling stands: US has no right to seize data from world’s servers
The request for Supreme Court intervention concerns a 4-year-old legal battle between Microsoft and the US government over data stored on Dublin, Ireland servers. The US government has a valid warrant for the e-mail as part of a drug investigation. Microsoft balked at the warrant, and convinced a federal appeals court that US law does not apply to foreign data.

The government on Friday told the justices that US law allows it to get overseas data, and national security was at risk.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Just figure, every time you email, or post to a blog, no matter how innocuous, that the data will be scanned and saved by both this government, and the governments which enter into this reciprocity agreement; the right to privacy no longer exists in the Unhinged, Surveilled States of America.

TSA considers forcing airline passengers to remove books from carry-ons

The Transportation Safety Administration (TSA) is reportedly testing new safety procedures that could require airline passengers to remove books from their carry-on bags when going through security lines, raising privacy concerns.

The Week reported that the TSA began testing the new security requirement for books and other paper products at airports in Missouri and California earlier this month. The new screening process could require passengers to remove all reading material and food from their carry-ons and place them in bins for screening, though the Wall Street Journal note changes have not been finalized.

Travelers already have to remove laptops from carry-on bags and place them in a separate bin. An early May test in Kansas City, Mo., had travelers remove all paper from their carry on bags, but it didn’t go well and was halted after a few days, the TSA told the Wall Street Journal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is not about safety; it is about the Thought Police, Gestapo-like, mentally ungifted thugs from TSA making an instant evaluation of your mental capabilities and geopolitical leanings, to determine if you should be a "person of interest" for the many "alphabet soup" agencies out there.

Looks like the 4th Amendment to the Constitution, protecting US citizens from unreasonable search and seizure of their property, has been bounced out on its ear by this government.

Syria warns Israel of 'dangerous repercussions for aggressive action'

Syrian army issues statement following IDF response to Syrian missile spillover, calling Israeli actions motivated 'a desperate attempt to boost morale' and warning 'Israeli enemy' of consequences.

The Syrian army warned Israel on Sunday of the "dangerous repercussions" of its "aggressive activities" after the IDF retaliated against spillover fire in the Golan Heights for the second day in a row.

After the Syrian army forces managed to thwart the wide-scale attack of terrorist al-Nusra … the Israeli enemy continued today to attack one of our military stations, in a desperate attempt to support terrorist organizations and boost their low morale," read a statement from the army of Syrian President Bashar Assad.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let's look at a map of the Israeli/Syrian border:

Map: Israeli/Syrian Border

Now, let's take a look at the Map of Eretz Israel, or "Greater Israel", which many Zionists in the Israeli government want to bring to fruition:

Image: Eretz Israel, or greater Israel, stretching from the Tigris to the Euphrates Rivers

Notice that hunks of Syria; Lebanon; Egypt; Iraq, and Saudi Arabia, get gobbled up in this redrawing of borders in the Middle East?!?

In the military hot mess which characterises the wars in Syria, it is not impossible that Israel's civilian and military infrastructure saw their bombings in Syria as a calculated risk, to see how much of the country it could potentially "chew off", and declare its own, beyond the Golan Heights, before the dust settles.

And we see some confirmation of that possibility in the following article, posted on last Saturday, from the timesofisrael.com:

Liberman: The Assad Regime will Continue to Suffer the Consequences of their Attacks

I would like to hope that Russia's Putin and Lavrov are telling their Israeli counterparts, in no uncertain terms, that these bombings must stop, or else there will be consequences, courtesy of the Russian military.

I don't know how long Putin will put up with this kind of military nonsense from the IDF in Syria, but my hunch would be, not very long at all.

Sketchy firm behind Trump dossier is stalling investigators

A secretive Washington firm that commissioned the dubious intelligence dossier on Donald Trump is stonewalling congressional investigators trying to learn more about its connections to the Democratic Party.

The Senate Judiciary Committee earlier this month threatened to subpoena the firm, Fusion GPS, after it refused to answer questions and provide records to the panel identifying who financed the error-ridden dossier, which was circulated during the election and has sparked much of the Russia scandal now engulfing the White House.

Are We in a Syrian Missile Crisis?

On Sunday, a U.S. F/A-18E "Super Hornet" fighter aircraft shot down a Syrian SU-22, a Russian-made fighter-bomber. On Monday, Russia issued an unprecedented warning to the United States: "Any aircraft, including planes and drones belonging to the international coalition, operating west of the River Euphrates, will be tracked by Russian anti-aircraft forces in the sky and on the ground and treated as targets."

It seems inconceivable that Russia and the United States might go to war over one Syrian aircraft, but the world thought the same thing after the assassination of one middle-aged Austrian named Franz, yet World War One still killed 15 million people.

NSA USES TRICK TO SPY ON AMERICANS

The government is spying on most Americans through our computers, phones, cars, buses, streetlights, at airports and on the street, via mobile scanners and drones, through our credit cards and smart meters, televisions, dolls, and in many other ways.

This week, ZDNet reported that the NSA uses a trick to get around the few flimsy American laws on spying … they shuttle internet traffic overseas so they can pretend they’re monitoring foreign communications:

A new analysis of documents leaked by whistleblower Edward Snowden details a highly classified technique that allows the National Security Agency to “deliberately divert” US internet traffic, normally safeguarded by constitutional protections, overseas in order to conduct unrestrained data collection on Americans.

CENTRAL BANKS BUYING STOCKS HAVE RIGGED US STOCK MARKET BEYOND RECOVERY

Central banks buying stocks are effectively nationalizing US corporations just to maintain the illusion that their “recovery” plan is working because they have become the banks that are too big to fail. At first, their novel entry into the stock market was only intended to rescue imperiled corporations, such as General Motors during the first plunge into the Great Recession, but recently their efforts have shifted to propping up the entire stock market via major purchases of the most healthy companies on the market.

Brian Rich, writing for Forbes, describes the economic illusion created by central banks buying stocks during a time of presidential prosecution:

HOW THE CIA-OPERATED A “DRUG SMUGGLING AIRLINE” FOR HEROIN & THE 9/11 CONNECTION

The CIA wasn’t just involved with the transportation of the drugs, however. The heroin was refined in a laboratory built at the CIA headquarters in Northern Laos. After about a decade of U.S. military intervention, SEA represented 70% of the world’s opium supplier. Unfortunately, many of the operatives became addicted to the heroin themselves. At the same time, SEA also became the main supplier of raw materials for the U.S. heroin industry. Though Air America apparently stopped operations in 1976, the CIA’s involvement in the opium and heroin industries continued in other parts of the world.

“We Got A Fuckin’ Problem:” Security Analyst/Soldier Chat Reveals Chem Attack Lies, Secret U.S. Agenda

By Brandon Turbeville

As congressional grandstanders make self-serving speeches repeating the “Russian threat” lie and push for greater sanctions and actions against the world’s only other superpower, veteran journalist Seymour Hersh has once again released a bombshell article blowing the official story of the chemical weapons attack at Khan Sheikhoun out of the water. The article is a “chat protocol” between an American military soldier and an American Security analyst. The soldier is on active duty at a key airbase in the region although the location of his deployment is being kept secret for obvious reasons...

House of Saudi Cards: The Inside Story

Just when geopolitical practitioners were betting on regime change in Qatar – orchestrated by a desperate House of Saud – regime change ended up happening in Riyadh, orchestrated by Warrior Prince, Destroyer of Yemen and Blockader of Qatar, Mohammad bin Salman (MBS).

Considering the impenetrability of that desert petrodollar family oligarchy impersonating a nation it’s up to a few foreigners granted access to make sense of the latest Arabian Game of Thrones. It also does not help that the “largesse” of Saudi – and Emirati – lobbies in Washington reduces virtually every think tank and hack in sight to abject sycophancy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It sounds as though the royal House of Saud is about to implode, but not before it does a great deal more regional damage than it has already done in Yemen, which has been viciously savage, and was very much the brain-child of Prince Mohammad bin Salman.

The Saudi/UAE "conditions" to which Qatar is supposed to accede by 2 July (one week from today" are untenable to both Qatar and Turkey, which has about 3,000 troops on the ground here, and a military base.

Week after next week is the 4th of July Independence Day holiday in the United States; if Prince Salman moves against Qatar militarily, my guess would be that it would be on or around that date, when Americans are distracted with 4th of July festivities.

And I have to wonder; should that happen, what are the standing orders which have been given to the commanders of nearly 10,000 US military personnel working in Qatar?!?

Yemen Now Faces 'The Worst Cholera Outbreak In The World,' U.N. Says

Seized by violence and teetering on the edge of famine, Yemen is grappling with another danger that threatens to outpace them both: cholera.

"We are now facing the worst cholera outbreak in the world," international health authorities said in a statement Saturday.

Anthony Lake, executive director of UNICEF, and Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organization, say that "more than 1,300 people have died — one quarter of them children — and the death toll is expected to rise."

They suspect that is because Yemen now has upwards of 200,000 cases to grapple with, and that number is growing quickly — by a rate of roughly 5,000 cases a day.

"And geographically, it is expanding," Mohamed El Montassir Hussein, Yemen director for the International Rescue Committee, told NPR's Jason Beaubien earlier this month. "It's not a small area. It's almost the whole country."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What is interesting is what this article doesn't say; which is, that as a result of US-enabled, Saudi blockade of Yemen's ports, which means food cannot get it, Yemeni children are dying from complications of malnutrition.

Images: Yemeni children dying from malnutrition

The Saudis and their American backers are not idiots; they knew that by creating this massive state of malnutrition in Yemen's kids, they were deliberately creating a condition where diseases would thrive, and cholera took up their invitation.

Another possible answer to the question of how this epidemic got so out of control so quickly, is the deliberate poisoning of Yemeni water systems with this disease; it would not have been the first time, historically, this has happened:

During the closing stages of the Rhodesian Bush War, the Rhodesian government resorted to use chemical and biological warfare agents. Watercourses at several sites inside the Mozambique border were deliberately contaminated with cholera. These biological attacks had little impact on the fighting capability of ZANLA, but caused considerable distress to the local population. The Rhodesians also experimented with several other pathogens and toxins for use in their counterinsurgency. [67]

Collective punishment is a war crime, period, end of discussion; and yet, the Saudi, US-enabled genocide in Yemen, including the assassination of innocent civilians; the blockade of ports creating malnutrition deaths in Yemen's kids, the subsequent diseases, like cholera, and the used of depleted uranium weapons, and the subsequent birth defects; cancers; and still births, continues here, unabated.

Closing Bank Accounts: Israel’s New Policy to Displace Palestinians Out of Jerusalem

Israel is closing the bank accounts of Arab institutions in Jerusalem in an effort to displace Jerusalemites and force them out of the city, the Department of Jerusalem Affairs has said.

In a press release, the organisation said the Israeli occupation’s moves against social, cultural, educational, relief, housing, legal or engineering institutions were political and go hand in hand with the Israeli policy of collective punishment against the defenseless Palestinian civilians in order to Judaise the city by force.

Lily Allen: We Can’t Gaslight an Entire Community Like This… That’s What’s Happening

In the maelstrom that has followed the Grenfell Tower fire, it has fallen to a perhaps unlikely figure to speak up for the residents and ask searching questions of the authorities.

Lily Allen lives in the shadow of the tower block and witnessed the unfolding tragedy in the early hours of June 14. Since then, she has been a constant presence at the scene, helping the victims and attempting to understand their concerns, but also giving commentary on the relief efforts and exploring the reasons behind the disaster.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To the people who managed Grenfell Tower, the people living there were simply ...expendable. Decisions could be made about building materials, like the very flammable cladding which were profoundly, amazingly stupid, and short sighted.

The investigation here should be criminal in nature, not civil, and those people who willingly, and knowingly, made these decisions punished, severely, and the people of the UK should never have to live in unsafe housing again.

Lily Allen is a heroine to me, and I am sure, to many of those who had families, now lost, from this horrendous fire.

US-Led Airstrikes Killed 472 Civilians in Syria in the Past Month

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has issued a report today covering the civilian death toll of US-led coalition airstrikes in Syria over the past month, from May 23 to June 23, reporting at least 472 civilians, the largest in any 30-day period since the US started bombing Syria in 2014.

The attacks covered two provinces in Syria, with 222 civilians killed in Deir Ezzor, and the other 250 civilians killed in the Raqqa Province. Strikes against the area immediately surrounding Raqqa were nominally done in support of the Kurdish YPG’s advance on ISIS’ capital, the city of Raqqa.

In Deir Ezzor, much of the death toll was in airstrikes against buildings in the city of Mayadin, where huge numbers of civilian relatives of ISIS fighters were said to be killed, many of them young children. Over the two provinces, the Syrian Observatory counted 137 children killed in the US-led attacks.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights is a propaganda front, funded by the EU.

Turkey to stop teaching Darwin’s theory of evolution in high schools

TURKEY will stop teaching Darwin’s theory of evolution in high schools, deeming it controversial and difficult to understand, a senior education official says.

Critics say President Tayyip Erdogan and the Islamist-rooted AK Party are undermining modern Turkey’s secular foundations by pushing a conservative agenda, including tighter regulation of alcohol and other restrictions, since coming to power in 2002.

A chapter entitled Beginning of Life and Evolution will be deleted from the standard biology textbooks used in schools and the material will be available only to students who go on to university studies from age 18 or 19, Alparslan Durmus, head of the national education board said in an online address this week.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The American comedian Ron White has a one-liner which absolutely applies here: "You can't fix stupid."

And this ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid move has obviously been done to dumb down Turkish high school students by people who utterly do not understand the incontrovertible science of evolution.

Preparing For War? US House Wants To Create First New Military Branch Since 1947

There’s currently a push in the halls of Washington D.C., to establish a new branch of the military by 2019, one whose focus would be operations among the stars. Proposed legislation by House representatives would create a “Space Corps” that would serve “as a separate military service within the Department of the Air Force.”

It would be the first branch added to the military since 1947 when the Air Force was officially established.

On Tuesday, the top two lawmakers of the Strategic Forces Subcommittee, Representatives Mike Rogers and Jim Cooper, added the legislation to the 2018 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). The subcommittee oversees military space operations and works within the umbrella of the House Armed Services Committee.

“There is bipartisan acknowledgement that the strategic advantages we derive from our national security space systems are eroding,” Rogers and Cooper said in a joint statement.

TWO ITALIAN ZOMBIE BANKS TOPPLED FRIDAY NIGHT

When banks fail and regulators decide to liquidate them, it happens on Friday evening so that there is a weekend to clean up the mess. And this is what happened in Italy – with two banks!

It’s over for the two banks that have been prominent zombies in the Italian banking crisis: Veneto Banca and Banca Popolare di Vicenza, in northeastern Italy.

The banks have combined assets of €60 billion, a good part of which are toxic and no one wanted to touch them. They already received a bailout but more would have been required, and given the uncertainty and the messiness of their books, nothing was forthcoming, and the ECB which regulates them lost its patience.

In a tersely worded statement, the ECB’s office of Banking Supervision ordered the banks to be wound up because they “were failing or likely to fail as the two banks repeatedly breached supervisory capital requirements.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Euro itself is set to fall and fail; it not a matter of if, but when.

FLIMSY EVIDENCE AND FRINGE SOURCES LAND PEOPLE ON SECRETIVE BANKING WATCHLIST

A CORPORATE DATABASE used by banks and other institutions to screen clients for crimes such as money laundering and terror financing has labeled dozens of U.S. citizens as connected to terrorism on the basis of outdated or unsubstantiated allegations. An analysis of a 2014 copy of the database, which is known as World-Check, also indicates that many thousands of people, including children, were listed on the basis of tenuous links to crime or to politically prominent persons.

The database relied on allegations stemming from right-wing Islamophobic websites to categorize under “terrorism” people and groups like the Council on American-Islamic Relations, several mosques, and national and regional Islamic organizations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That databases like this can be used to smear people who are perfectly innocent of wrongdoing smacks of Orwellian wrong-doing on a ginormous scale.

There’s No Justice… In the US criminal justice system — Paul Craig Roberts

The criminalization of US citizens by the Injustice System is now one of America’s largest industries. Prisons have been privatized, and their inmates comprise cheap labor for Apple Computer and defense industries among many others. The United States of America not only has the highest percentage of its population in prison, it has the highest absolute number, substantially higher than “authoritarian China,” a country whose population is FOUR TIMES LARGER than the US but a country with fewer people in prison. -- That should tell Americans something. But they are too brainwashed to see it. The morons rush to the defense of the police, and they praise prosecutors for their wrongful convictions. In America, to be accused is to be guilty. Not even President Trump is safe from being falsely convicted by false charges and driven from office.

Indeed, the Washington Post called on Brennan to be fired for lying.
